Tuesday January 22nd – 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 †

    Oh my goodness! Have y’all seen the comments from the Italian Deputy PM?

    “Di Maio, the leader of the anti-establishment Five-Star Movement, had called on the EU to “sanction France and all countries like France that impoverish Africa and make these people leave, because Africans should be in Africa, not at the bottom of the Mediterranean”. He added: “If people are leaving today it’s because European countries, France above all, have never stopped colonising dozens of African countries.”

    The deputy PM was unrepentant in later comments, made after the ambassador had been summoned on Monday, describing France as “one of these countries which, because it prints the currency of 14 African countries, hampers development and contributes to the departure of refugees” – a reference to a colonial-era currency that is still underpinned by the French Treasury.”


    LOVE these Italian Nationalist men!

    Probably not great the kid is appearing on the Today show tomorrow. Even perfect responses will be deliberately mischaracterized as racism, etc.

    Ordinary people don’t realize journalists lie to you to make you believe they are sympathetic in order to get the interview. Then they massacre you. See Martin Bashir’s Michael Jackson interview for the textbook example.

        maybe yes, maybe no….does it really matter? They got there a day early for the Life Rally from Kentucky……that does NOT change a thing. They are still minors. The Indian (feather, not dot…important around here in OK! snicker) approached the kids…they were surrounded from just walking away….plus the Black Israelites (remember a taste of them from the trayvon days?!) had just previously harassed them….there is film, from one of their own!

        Sorry I complained coveyouth…..I’m taking a break from the Sen appropriations bill….and I needed a break obviously. {sorry…grin}

      Transcript, article, and more:

      Intro: A Franc Discussion

      Luigi Di Maio is the leader of the 5-Star Movement in Italy and Deputy Prime Minister in the current Italian government (in coalition with the Lega Nord).

      Mr. Di Maio caused an uproar yesterday when he accused France of engaging in neo-colonialism in Africa by manipulating a regional currency known as the CFA. His remarks to the press on the subject may be seen in this video (switch on the closed-caption setting to see the English translation).

      Giorgia Meloni is the leader of the anti-immigration party Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) and a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. The Brothers are not part of the current governing coalition in Italy, but they are long-time allies of the Lega Nord and take similar positions on most political issues.

    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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
