Friday November 16th – 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 †

    This is about the drain on America that mass immigration brings.
    Sometimes I don’t know whether to put things like this here or on the presidential thread, it’s political but not specific to him.
    I was just talking with a mother who got turned down for SS for her adult child with autism.
    This isn’t uncommon, SS turns down the most legitimate claimants in the first go-round, it’s been that way for a long time, and everybody knows it.
    I was encouraging this woman to go the distance, and I was also grumbling about the real reasons SS is so precarious, and they aren’t because old women go to the doctor too much.
    I mentioned chain migration as a major factor.
    She started thinking about it, and then she told me a story of a family she knows who came here as refugees decades ago.
    The grandmother in that family was able to sign up for SS as soon as she was old enough. The worst part is, she decided she wanted to live at “home” in her declining years, went back to the country she was a refugee from, and still receives SS.
    The family cashes her checks, sends her half, which she can afford to live on over there, and keeps the rest.
    How many stories like this are out there?
    Yes, bring in entire families with their hands out, let them have first crack at bringing in everybody in their village, because they are all related, and then Paul Ryan tells us we need more Somalis and old ladies have it too good?

  2. My comment for today..
    Isn’t “Socialized Medicine” Wonderful?

    I went to the ER.. For My “Hernia”..
    Most if NOT All the Dr’s working in the “Specialized” field that do what I need to have done are…
    On “vacation” for the TG Holidays…
    I had a choice, Lay in the Hospital under “observation” ,, Or WAIT until they come back from vacation.. Earliest I could get “anything” done is Nov, 28th..
    I chose NOT to be under “observation”, risking getting sick from Norovirus or something..
    Got a script for pain Meds & just “taking it EZ here at Home”..

    Doctors “suggestion” to stay off my feet & eat “lightly”..

    Chicago: Muslim who plotted to set off bomb outside bar wants to plead guilty and also claim entrapment
    November 15, 2018 by Robert Spencer

    “In his filing, Daoud’s attorney, Thomas Anthony Durkin called the Alford plea appropriate because Daoud acknowledged the strength of the evidence against him but also maintained ‘credible’ claims of entrapment.”

    James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action email today, 11/16/18 (couldn’t find a link at the website)…

    Yesterday our First Amendment lawyer Ben Barr delivered a huge win for First Amendment rights and undercover journalism!

    I just got word from our legal team in Ohio that the Ohio Elections Commission dismissed the complaint recently filed against us based on one of our 2016 campaign investigations. With their ruling, you and I can continue to expose corruption in one of the biggest battleground states in the country!

    The complaint, filed by a Washington D.C. democrat political activist, misapplied Ohio law to one of our investigations, alleging that our undercover reporting was illegal.

    The complainant, who is so consumed with trying to stop Project Veritas from conducting undercover investigations that she and her associates once harassed one of our reporters on the streets of Washington for almost 20 minutes.

    She works with Bob Creamer of Democracy Partners, the subcontracted consulting group working on the Hillary campaign and DNC. Veritas exposed them in 2016 and if you recall, that video exposed plans to conduct mass voter fraud leading up to the election.
    In that investigation, an associate of Creamer said the following:
    “We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you f***** a******s for fifty years and we’re not going to stop now.”

    Despite this Washington D.C. activist’s efforts, the Ohio Elections Commission voted 4 to 2 to dismiss this faulty assault on our right to conduct newsgathering. Maybe the dismissal will help alleviate this woman’s fixation on attacking

    About the term “invasion” –

    Article IV, Section IV of the US Constitution

    The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against INVASION; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

    IMO, that is why PDJT is adamant about consistently using the term “invasion”.

    Kevin Mccarthy’s build the wall bill is a sham – don’t support it!

    Most people have heard ads for mccarthy’s build the wall bill. It is not a local ad, as some assume, but it is being aired nationwide, sponsored by some group ‘state tea party express’. The sponsor chose a name that tries to fool people into thinking it is a local group.

    The bill itself, is found here mccarthy site. The link to the bill itself is

    In the web site, it says it will fully fund the wall with $25 billion. However that is only the start of the lies. The bill only allocates $24.3 billion for border improvements, of which $16.6 billion goes to border wall system, barriers, detection systems and road infrastructure.

    Then it gets worse, as the $16.6 billion is allocated as $5.5 billion year 1, then $1.7-2.1 billion over the next 6 years. All of the funding is discretionary, and needs to be approved yearly! This does not get a border wall built NOW, and very possibly would keep one from ever being built, if approved.

      Yep. Louie Gohmert said that was all just political talk. Promises made that would not be kept as understood by the hearer.

        Louie Gohmert is one of the few long-timers with his soul intact.

        McCarthy had 2 years to bring this bill….and he files it on Nov.12, 2018?

        FWIW…….a “congress” is a term for a 2 year period of time of elected office for both Chambers. This is the end of the 115th Congress. When a new Congress is sworn in….the 116th, on Jan. 3, 2019, All legislation that didn’t get a vote in the last congress, dies.

        So, we’ll see if McCarthy even bothers to refile his legislation after Jan 3rd…..let alone if he pushes it, or if it truly was a campaign ruse. Already…someone was talking this last week about merging McCarthy’s bill with another. Probably some other piece of crap bill that won’t stand on it’s own.

    Well this is very interesting. Civil War veterans in the 1930’s performing the rebel yell. It isn’t the Hollywood “YEEE-haw!” like the Dukes of Hazzard. It’s more of a howl: YEEEEEEOWWWW! WOOOOWWWWW!

    Praying without ceasing that Globalist and Dim Socialists are punished for destruction wrought on the House of Israel.

    Psalm 83 King James Version (KJV)

    83 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
    2. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
    3. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
    4. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
    5. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee

      The neatest thing I saw was when that illegal stuck his face into the dashcam like “heh, Im here and wanta show you who I am” moment. If you traveling through that state, you will notice a LE presence most everywhere. My bff lives there and gets immediate response when she makes the call, so I really have alot of respect and admiration for all the officers.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    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.
