Tuesday November 13th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    The issue of bullying in majority-minority schools is one of those things conveniently swept under the rug. Bullying of minority students in mostly white schools is a cause celebre, the opposite is buried.
    We have a news item here that the local Fox station is carrying…I don’t expect the other stations to carry it but that’s another issue. Until the boy’s mother posted the video on line the school spiked her complaints and now that it’s been outed on a local station the school’s going to look at the issue. So far it’s taken the huge step of sending out a letter to students/family which you can guess will probably cause much soul searching in the thug-in-training community.
    I got into this a few years back when my blue-eyed, blond-haired grandson got into a fight in grade school and was accused of attacking a group of three innocent minority students as they peacefully walked between classes. The school was talking suspension until we started talking lawyer then things suddenly took a more sane direction. There’s bullying and then there’s this:

      Horrible, I hope things worked out for your grandson. School administrators think ignoring this behavior helps minority students… SMH.. Yesterday my best friend told me that one of her colleagues was attacked by a black woman because the colleague told this woman’s son that he needed to behave in the library.. The mom attacked, physically attacked the librarian……

        Not unusual, we have an infamous black woman who’s been a …disruptive (liberal trash call it ’empowered’) like that. Violence seems to be a liberation trait.
        My wife and I are and have been on the school’s butt like (if you’ll excuse the expression) white on rice. We have a lawyer we wave in their faces every so often and I’m also talking with the Feds at the DoE to see what options are in the wings.

    The Consequences of Impatience
    NOVEMBER 13, 2018
    Luke 15:11-21

    How serious is a lack of patience? We generally write it off as inconsequential. It’s often seen as a weakness rather than a sin—after all, it’s not as bad as adultery, theft, or murder. But have you ever considered what your impatience reveals about your attitude toward God?

    When we demonstrate an inability to tolerate delay, we are telling the Lord, “I don’t trust Your timing; mine is better.” Can you see the seriousness of this attitude? Impatience is a display of pride because we are elevating our understanding above that of our all-knowing God.

    The prodigal son’s journey toward disaster began with impatience. He wanted his inheritance immediately and was unwilling to wait. After taking matters into his own hands, he faced the following consequences:

    He brought sorrow on his family. Likewise, our impatience hurts those we love.

    He left the security of home. When we run ahead of God, we often leave behind the voices of reason and wisdom in our life.

    He found himself in ruin. God’s blessing accompanies our obedience, so we stand to lose a great deal when we ignore His timing.

    He felt unworthy. We don’t experience fellowship with the Lord when impatience keeps us outside of His will.

    Although the prodigal son was welcomed home, he could never regain the inheritance he’d lost. We, too, must often live with painful consequences as a result of jumping ahead of God. Let’s remember it’s better to wait patiently until the Lord moves us forward.

      Psalm 7:14-17 New King James Version (NKJV)
      14 Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;
      Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.
      15 He made a pit and dug it out,
      And has fallen into the ditch which he made.
      16 His trouble shall return upon his own head,
      And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.
      17 I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness,
      And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.

    Clinton lawyers due in court tomorrow . . .

    “Judicial Watch announced today that a hearing will be held in federal court Wednesday, November 14, 2018, on a motion to compel further testimony from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat John Bentel, as well as make public the audiovisual recordings of the depositions of top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills.

    Clinton claimed that she ‘does not recall’ 20 times in her under-oath responses to 25 Judicial Watch questions concerning her Clinton.com, non-state.gov email system. Bentel asserted his Fifth Amendment right and refused to answer 87 questions at his deposition.

    The hearing is before U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan.

    Date: Wednesday, November 14, 2018
    Time: 2:00 p.m. ET
    Location: Courtroom 24A
    U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia”

    The good folks over at Judicial Watch know that the best defense is a good offense!

    Every state should have an electronic lock box for federal elections. Each state can set their own deadline for receiving votes – including in person, mail in, early, etc. Each precinct submits their vote total to the state lock box. No one has access to the lockbox until the deadline date is reached. Local elections officials would be barred by law from disclosing vote totals.

    At the deadline, the state election official presents the totals from the lock box and declares the winners.

    This way, Democrat strongholds can’t hold their votes until they see how many extra votes they need to win. If they can’t get their vote totals in on time, they submit what they have. Exceptions would be defined by law.

    Wrongly convicted Rep. Steve Stockman gets 10 years behind bars

    Democrats are gloating over the sentencing of former Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, last week. He was ordered to serve 10 years in prison for the vague charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.

      “Wrongly convicted Rep. Steve Stockman gets 10 years behind bars”

      From your link:

      “…The case against Stockman was so weak it took prosecutors four grand juries to finally get an indictment. It took four years to investigate what should have been a six month investigation. It cost $15-20 million to go on a fishing expedition, which included intimidating witnesses.

      “…Benjamin Wetmore, a key witness for the prosecution and an attorney for one of the nonprofits, says Stockman is completely innocent. He described what happened, “If you can get away with the lie to exert maximum political and personal damage on someone, it doesn’t matter if a correction gets printed later, or if an appeal succeeds; all that the masses remember is the original hit.” ”

      It seems us Treepers should get over to the white House on that link you posted above and make the case for a pardon. https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/

      Why burden this man with the expense and stress of going through an appeal? Former Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX) had to go through 7 years and over a million dollars in legal fees to defend himself against bogus charges.

      This is the reason George Soros was investing money in District Attorney’s offices across the country.

    Advice for our MAGA President

    “Beware the Jabberwookie, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the lies that catch!
    Beware her Kenyan terd, and shun
    The Jabberwookie’s mandrishsnatch!”

    Trump took his vorpal sword in hand;
    Long time the manxome foe he sought—
    So rested he by the Dum-dem tree
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And, as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwookie, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling with her tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! And through and through
    Trump’s vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    “And hast thou slain the Jabberwookie?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
    Trump chortled in his joy.

    Florida Recount’s Hidden Gun Control Agenda

    capturing the Florida agricultural commissioner’s post would be a key victory in liberal and progressive push for gun control. As the Tampa Bay Times notes, Florida is unusual in that the Florida agricultural commissioner, rather than the courts or other law enforcement, is the entity that regulates and controls things like concealed carry permits

    Gillium, Nelson and Fried are the Florida trifecta of gun control.

    A Martyr from Chicago.

    Hieromartyr John Kochurov is honored on this day (October 31 Orthodox Church Calendar or
    November 13 civil calendar).

    One of the first, if not the first, of hundreds of Orthodox Priests to endure martyrdom was Father John Kochurov. He was a native of Russia, but was sent to America to serve the faithful where he was instrumental in building the Orthodox cathedral in Chicago, Illinois.

    He was sent back to Russia shortly before the October 1917 Revolution. Six days after the Bolshevik seizure of power, he was beaten to death in the street by Bolshevik sailors in the town of Tsarkoye Selo near Saint Petersburg.

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
