Wednesday November 14th – 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 †

    While looking for an article by Allan Wall about the mass movement of migrants through Mexico, I came across a stunning article/letter about a GOP candidate from New Jersey who lost his bid for the House of Representatives. The candidate was Seth Grossman.

    An observation I have about twitter. Since 2015, I have had an acct. but do not tweet or follow anyone. I only keep an open tab for SD’s twitter page. Despite not tweeting (I “like” tweets), I have on average 7-9 followers (surprises me there are any). Anyway, a few nights ago, received a notification from twitter regarding followers. I scrolled down my entire list which isn’t very long but I noticed on July 7, 2017, I picked up Gen. Flynn as a follower and believe it was his authentic acct. – blue check mark. A few minutes ago, another recent follower but the entire month of July, 2017 is now gone. Can’t figure out why. And I find it peculiar.

      K I looked and there are several twitter thingys but it looks as if this is the official one for him:

      twitter is so wierd I pretty much stay clear of joining up, Im sure you have options to allow follows and can choose the ones you wish not to have there. Maybe someone with the knowledge on how it works will chime in to help you.

        I signed up because I assumed it was the only way to “like” tweets. Went to his page, dogsmaw and found this (copied and pasted from his page). Apparently he is following me. Don’t know why, as I said, I don’t tweet. I have in all likelihood liked his tweets:

        “General FlynnVerified account
        @GenFlynn Follows you”


        • Lucille says:

          Janie, perhaps it’s just a courtesy on his part since you “liked” his tweets on occasion. How many followers does he have?

          Hope you aren’t on Muller’s list now for investigation as one of General Flynn’s cohorts. LOL!

            😆😆. He has 247k followers and he’s following 21.8k. Don’t know how he does it. I initially “followed” Jack Posobiec a few years ago… big mistake because every single time he tweeted, I would receive an email notification. Couldn’t keep up, so I unfollowed him. I will never to do that again, I have problems keeping up with my emails on a regular basis.

              Actually, I think it’s neat that he follows you…just one of those fun little things that inexplicably happen in life. How many others at CTH can say they’re followed by a national figure? Zip, likely.

              In my Twitter and Tweet days, I was always hoping that Aaron Rodgers would follow me since I followed him and a lot of other players on the Green Bay Packers. Alas, didn’t happen…and now that I’m off Twitter, HE’S LOST HIS CHANCE!! LOL!

    Power Line’s Steven Hayward dissects the leftist behemoth
    By Monica Showalter

    We probably think of Power Line’s Steven Hayward as a first-rate writer at first glance, but he’s got this other side and it’s a doozy: He’s a distinguished law professor who gets awards and gives special-event lectures for his accomplishments at universities. He’s done quite a few.

    On his show today AlexJones claimed in essence that this years national voting fraud spectacle is a trial run for the 2020 Presidential Election. It is his contention that the democrat socialists have stolen congressional seats in Arizona, New Mexico, California, Montana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio, and on and on and still trying in Georgia, Alabama and Florida… and mass media is complicit in the blatant nationwide election theft.

    Watch this Nov. 14, 2018 broadcast before it gets banned by Goggle-Skynet.

      That’s not a bad theory D _V…..IMO Demonrats have been cheating all along, it’s just not ever been so blatantly obvious.

      2018 midterms is the FIRST election since the overthrough of that 30+ year Lawsuit that kept the R’s from challenging the D’s on election tampering.

        The FEC and the DOJ must take a stand and expose the country wide election system corruption. They can start by placing on hold every election decision that came more than 24 hours after the voting. Any local official who objects should be detained for questioning. As Andrew Breitbart declared … we are #WAR. We have a choice. We can roll over and let the socialists run rampant across the country laughing, cheating, lying and destroying our freedoms … or we can say enough is enough?

      Just because someone says looters will be shot on sight, doesn’t mean that any non-law enforcement individual in California can use deadly force and expect to get away with it. It’s just a lot of talk on Hart’s part.

    On senate tee-vee, I thought for a moment they were actually going to have a debate, let alone and argument on the Floor! (other senators are hardly ever on the Floor, while another is talking – Poor leadership – most decisions made behind closed doors.)

    Lamar Alexander apparently is upset with Sen. Schmuckles, because Schmuckles is putting a hold on the vote on a nominee from Tennessee. Schmuckles showed up on the Floor, found out he was being challenged, and ran off the Floor.

    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.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    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.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Here is my concern. Dont know where else to post.

    Currently there is an outbreak of a “polio like” disease. Same exact symptoms as polio. So if symptoms are exactly the same is it possible the polio virus has mutated? Can we trust the CDC not to play politics in order to continue open borders one world policy? Are we jmporting 3rd world health problems along with low wage workers for our rulers? Where are these cases? Have any elite kids come down with it?

    Two kids have died but CDC says no deaths though admit some victims remain paralyzed. Is CDC playing politics with our kids lives?

    Measles cases have increased too, as has whoopjng cough which can kill infants.

        Again from my old notes:

        This is from 2014 and the story I was thinking of:

        “…Border Patrol agents have already tested positive for TB. Breitbart reported on July 8 that a previously deported illegal from Guatemala with active TB infection was admitted to UMC El Paso Hospital. Cases of TB have been identified in the illegal immigrant camps in San Antonio, Austin, and El Paso, Texas, but we do not have information released on the situation for Arizona with the planeloads of illegal immigrants being shipped to Arizona from Texas.

        The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has downplayed the risks, but <b.anonymous nurses and doctors from Lackland AFB have come forward to say that the government is covering up a serious public health threat. One health care worker was quoted saying: “The amount of tuberculosis is astonishing. The nurses are telling us the kids are really sick.”

        Normally the CDC would be providing warnings and preventive steps for the public to take. This time, however, the CDC has been strangely silent. In fact, medical staff at detention centers have been threatened with criminal prosecution if they report these cases to the public or press.

        This suppression of critical medical information is egregious negligence putting millions of Americans at serious risk. Americans need to demand that Congress and public officials provide answers and appropriate steps to control the spread of disease before thousands of Americans die.”

      Yy4u I have been following the outbreak of the polio-like disease. One of the things that popped into my head was old articles from decades ago in “Mothering Magazine” which noted that the polio vaccine is a live virus and might survive in disposable diapers in landfills (some writers were pro-cloth diapers which are boiled/sanitized).

      I have no idea.

      I did lose faith in the CDC over their handling of the Ebola crisis, when two nurses were infected in Texas (fortunately survived, but nearly died), and they had been working with inadequate protection — their necks were exposed, literally.

      If we had had a functioning CDC, those nurses would have had adequate protective gear on Day 1, and probably the patient would have been hauled off to an appropriate level facility for care instead of left in a regular hospital. The patient who died was a Liberian national, but the entire response to his illness was bizarre, as if no one was going to act like a leader… quarantine measures for the family were inadequate (the relative who had cared for the man was sent back to work in a nursing home long before it could be determined that she was not infected! Fortunately she was responsible and stayed off work at her own expense apparently). The nurses’ protective gear was inadequate, and to top it off, no one could locate the “Public Health Czar” who was supposed to be in charge from Washington DC… it appeared that there were layers upon layers of ignorant disinterested bureaucrats being paid massive sums to appear busy, but they weren’t actually doing anything useful

      Of course. How could we think anything else. The little cute, little, warm un-vaccinated spreaders of disease have been shipped all over the U.S. and put into all the schools. And, they will NEVER tell you that that is where the diseases are coming from.
