Wednesday December 5th – 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 †

    Here’s something I stumbled on by accident – an Aussie has too much fun at the expense of a self-described “social media influencer”. In case you had any doubts about (a) the stupidity and gullibility of the millenials and (b) the contribution of “social media” to the moral rot that is eating the West.

    Many people have memories of the man. They’re not all bad.



    Catholic League president Bill Donohue recalls his memories of the late President George H.W. Bush:

    During the 1988 presidential campaign, I was a Bradley Resident Scholar at The Heritage Foundation. My first book, The Politics of the American Civil Liberties Union, published in 1985, was the magnet that landed me the job.

    Apparently, there was a survey done on 1500 climate engineers and meterologists and not one checked the box that said no geoengineering of the climate is being done.

    The Paradise fire has been on alot of climate engineers’ minds due to its bizarre features. One engineer who measures humidity said the atmosphere was down to 5% humidity which is absolutely unnatural and impossible. Global warming is a manufactured crisis.

    For a good technical understanding which you can share widely with others, go here

    Do not call it chemical trails which conjures up nutcase, the engineer says to call it by its correct name – geoengineering sort of like social engineering.

    I was at the Veterans thrift store and one of the volunteers walked in with a small purple cloth bag filled with rock cubes, they looked just like this:

    We gathered around the check out counter guessing…Very mysterious, cubes of granite(?)hmmm
    I told them I had it figured out, they were castle seeds.. You plant them, give them water and sunshine and you can grow a castle…Anyway, at home, I looked them up, and they are for sipping whiskey… Yes, some people really do have drinks “on the rocks” The thrift shop guy gave them to me… and laughed… my husband is planning on trying them out tonight..

    • If you make it to Atlanta visit the Step Up Thrift shop. It’s on Monroe St. close to the Ponce. Be prepared, no A/C, not a great location and sometimes shopper attitude and it closes before dark. They have the best stuff evah from quirky junk to high dollar furniture, artwork, clothes, and jewelry at cheap cheap prices. Make sure to take sanitary hand wipes.

        Someday, but right now we are afraid of Atlanta. The roads, highways I suppose, look like a spider web, very confusing…. :/


        • The Atlanta highway system is very bad and scary. Roads bite, people drive crazy, wandering all over the road, speeding, driving with one hand on the wheel, the other arm on the passenger seat back, cutting you off, flipping you off, it’s not for the tame. When you hear Siri tell you to exit in 50 feet, and see your exit sign you better be ready to exit because at that point you’ve probably passed it. The bad thing is who knows where you’ll end up. Kind of like Houston and Dallas.

        Today, at the SAFE thrift store (helps abused woman) I found UGG boots, the classic suede boot, brand new…. Normally I never buy shoes or boots, but who could resist a bargain like that…

      I have some (got as a gift). It’s for sipping high $$ stuff where the essence is not to be bastardized by the lowly ice cube melting. Kind of a crock. Glass-ice-vodka…enjoy is the better alternative


  6. National Portrait Gallery………
    I had the chance to view the presidential portaits at the NPG in Washington. My favorite was Nixon. It was the smallest in size and painted by Rockwell.

    My least favorite was the Bill Clinton piece. Over sized and abstract jazz mess.

      Who owns docdroid? What is their address? What is their m.o.? Do they search out documents or are they a repository for other people’s research?

      Since I seldom click on any obscure website because of malware danger, perhaps you could provide this information so readers can determine legitimacy. Thanks.

        Hi Lucille,

        Great Question – If it has malware then I have it now as I had to click on it to go there, After further investigation it has a very high review rate and safety rating. DocDroid is a free online document uploading, conversion and sharing tool. It appears to me that it is good to go but don’t take my word google it yourself is all I can suggest!

    Request for thread: what is happening with Xi? Has he encountered resistance after apparently meeting our demands? Did our team exaggerate? The MSM is gleeful at the prospect of PDJT seemingly being hustled! Is the deep state actually trying to crash the market to give him a black eye?

    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.

    Okay the country is 50% divided? Not showing up as I said before when comparing President Trump rallies to empty seats and reduced four for one Clinton tickets. Nope no true when it takes five days after the polls close to print enough faux ballots the elect another loser. Or when the Fake news outlets are auctioning off mothers jewelry and the family heirlooms to put ink on a page just one more day. Then there is the latest swamp scam, lets crash the market create chaos get OWS to reactivate tent sleep overs on Wall Street. More Soros & 🤡 games.

    I do not know how to make the fancy video show in the comment here sorry! (maybe someone can help me and do it)

    But this is incredible video of Laura Bush showing Jeb Bush something written on a page of the program at the funeral service today!
    Jeb Bush’s smile was quickly taken away as Laura Bush shows him something on the paper she was holding. He looks horrified at whatever he saw.

    The prayer thread is super super slow. I used to check on my laptop, but have been checking via Phone the last few days. I didn’t notice a problem on my laptop. Also on my Phone I don’t have trouble with any other pages. Only the prayer thread. It takes forever to load, and once loaded and I start scrolling down, it acts as if it has to reload all the comments? Wondering if it is the same issue that Ma’ has?

    So, China is upset that the U.S. caught them lying about on who was the end-user (Iran) of telecommunications equipment?
    ” *The arrest of Huawei’s global chief financial officer in Canada, reportedly related to the violation of U.S. sanctions, will affect trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing, according to risk consultancy Eurasia Group.

    *Canada’s Department of Justice said on Wednesday the country arrested Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver, where she is facing extradition to the U.S.

    * U.S. authorities have been probing Huawei, one of the world’s largest makers of telecommunications network equipment, since at least 2016 for allegedly shipping U.S.-origin products to Iran and other countries in violation of U.S. export and sanctions laws, sources told Reuters in April.
