Wednesday February 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 †

    I am making Cinnamon candied nuts…for Valentine’s day prezzies…. mmmmmmmmm💕💕💕💕

    This recipe is easy and delicious…. I actually prefer walnuts instead of pecans… I soak them in the egg wash, then just dump them into the sugar and shake shake shake…Which is easier than the write up, but comes out the same.

    Luckily, I will be giving them all away,, because I have a sweet tooth and these are addictive…

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s abortion law:

    Exactly three weeks after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed his abortion law, which allows non-physicians to perform abortions up until the baby is born—and provides no criminal penalties for infanticide—he met with President Donald Trump. According to the White House, Trump “raised his concerns to Governor Cuomo about Democrats’ support of late-term abortions.”

    There is going to be a “day of mourning” event in New York on February 23.
    This is due to the bizarre and extreme expansion of a legal right women in New York (and everywhere already possessed.
    As I noted the other day, you don’t have to even be an opponent of the Roe v. Wade decision to find problems with the law:
    The reporter who wrote that column is obviously on the ‘pro-choice’ side, and I commend him for having the integrity to point out that there wasn’t really a reason to pass this law.
    The Doctor at the first link seems to be under the impression that there were women who were eager to murder their babies on their due date, but I don’t find it to be the case that anybody had any problems with the latitude given under the Supreme Court Decision.
    The women seen applauding the bill’s passage were partisan politicians.

    Now we see Andrew Cuomo being credited for the NYS Legislature’s “landmark” sexual harassment hearing:

    This is inaccurate, as the claim is made that Cuomo needed a Democrat majority to act on this, when in fact the most recent and egregious cases of sexual harassment in the legislature were by and covered up by Democrats, including Andrew Cuomo.
    Also it was Andrew Cuomo who engineered a Republican majority in the Senate to suit his purposes.
    NY has been Uniparty for ages.

    Anyone still have any doubts that this man intends to be our next president? The media is already conveniently forgetting so many facts for his sake.
    I’m really, really disgusted by the women who go along with his pretense that his is some sort of champion for women.
    I’d also like to point out that NY is the epicenter of so many of the crimes of rape and harassment occurring in the MSM/Entertainment complex.
    Andrew Cuomo was AG, wasn’t he, when his little brother worked in that sexist industry, and neither of them knew anything was going on?

    FTA – America’s Kaiser: How a pigeon served in two World Wars
    Souvenirs from battlefields the world over can be found in our Division of Political and Military History. Unique among them is a mounted German pigeon. His name is Kaiser, and his story is unique in the annals of military homing pigeon history. He would become one of the longest-held prisoners of war in American history and one of the longest-living pigeons ever bred in captivity. But how did a German war bird come to “live” at the National Museum of American History?

    Friends, not much of this world causes so much concern as to weaken my knees and sicken my stomach. I find I can withstand the misery and confounding of this world, even to have hope where it seems there is none. Of course, my hope is only by and from Christ. Yet always am I brought down, pierced in my heart, when it comes to the children. This abortion thing is driving me low. I am bowled over. I want to scream!

    Joel 2:12, 13
    Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

    And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

    Thank your LORD. You sustain me. I am brought low and made weary. My eyes are like rivers. My heart is crushed by the weight of evil. Yet I am lifted by your faithfulness. You are steadfast in your promises to not forsake me. Your grace is exceeding. My sustenance if from the LORD who is with me. I am humbled mightily in the sight of Him who keeps me. Let my heart sing praises unto Him who is my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. I shout praises of your holy name. All the glory is unto you who is Almighty God.

    Remember…President Trump gets called a racist and white nationalist in part because of fascists saying they support him. Think this woman will get the same treatment? Well, we already know that the Clintons (all 3) support her fake apology and her agenda, and the Dems have given her cover.

      She’s been assigned role by her handlers and that’s as a jihadist making inroads politically. I’d imagine the Secret Service has her on their radar; so it’s doubtful there’d be an occasion where she could get close enough to set off a device.

    In case no one mentioned this… Quodverum has a social media platform (similar to twitter)
    A couple of people that you may have read about, like Imperator Rex and Thomas Wictor seem to have made themselves at home…
    I am not tech savy enough to understand some of the details.. they said that it would somehow work across different platforms or something… I really didn’t understand.. but here is a look at Rex… The thing seems to run on something called Mastadon, and instead of tweeting you have toots… yes, that is what they named comments.. toots… So it may be something, it may just be a flash in the pan.. but have a look if you are curious.

    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.

    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.

    An ex-boyfriend has been arrested in connection to the death of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes, whose body was discovered bound in a suitcase on the side of the road, according to police.

    Javier Da Silva, 24, was interviewed and allegedly “admitted a role” in Reyes’ death, Greenwich Police Capt. Robert Berry said Tuesday.

    Da Silva was arrested Monday night in Queens, New York, according to police, and charged with kidnapping resulting in death.

    Da Silva, a citizen of Portugal, entered the U.S. in May 2017 through the Visa Waiver Program, but he overstayed his visa, officials from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Wednesday.

    ICE has lodged a detainer, and pursuant to the detainer, ICE said it will aim to take custody of him for immediate removal when he is released from criminal custody.
    He is the only suspect identified as this time, though the investigation is ongoing, Berry told reporters Tuesday afternoon.
