Thursday February 21st – 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 †

    Roseanne Barr takes aim at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a ‘bug-eyed b***h’ who has cost hundreds of people jobs in a rambling foul-mouthed rant, less than one year after she was fired for being racist

    It’s from 2013 but is an interesting article that goes into how easily people become steered into following the latest social justice ‘thing’; speaks of how easily the GOP politicians fall in line when confronted with these sjw folk.

    For whatever reason, Kevin (I don’t care) Meaney came to mind a few nights ago. I ended up visiting a site where it had an extensive (184) list (with photos) of the individuals/celebrities, etc., who had passed away in 2016. I had forgotten he was no longer with us.🙁 Included the compilation was Gogi Grant who sang that iconic song from my childhood, “The Wayward Wind.” I looked for youtube videos of her and found this particular one; she was performing at 80 years old! Her voice was still amazing.

      I just saw a thread at another site saying that crazy hoaxer guy is actually related to Kamala. Didn’t read the thread, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

    Federal prosecutors broke law in Jeffrey Epstein case, judge rules

    FEBRUARY 21, 2019 02:51 PM,


    Read more here:

    A judge ruled Thursday that federal prosecutors — among them, U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta — broke federal law when they signed a plea agreement with a wealthy, politically connected sex trafficker and concealed it from more than 30 of his underage victims.

    U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra, in a 33-page opinion, said that the evidence he reviewed showed that Jeffrey Epstein had been operating an international sex operation in which he and others recruited underage girls — not only in Florida — but from overseas, in violation of federal law.

    “Epstein used paid employees to find and bring minor girls to him.,’’ wrote Marra, who is based in Palm Beach County. “Epstein worked in concert with others to obtain minors not only for his own sexual gratification, but also for the sexual gratification of others.’’

      Alan Dershowitz, whose face I see on Fox News all the time, had a hand in getting Epstein off. From a “related article” link at bottom or your article:

      By then, word had gotten back to Epstein from some of the girls that they had been questioned by police. Epstein hired famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz.

      “Alan Dershowitz flew down and met privately with Krischer,’’ Recarey said. “And the shenanigans that happened, I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard of before.’’

      Cops worked to put serial sex abuser in prison. Prosecutors worked to cut him a break

    My sister-in-law in Las Vegas just sent me a photo she took of my brother standing outside in 7 inches of snow. The palm trees in the background are covered with ice.

    Strange things are happening.

    We listened to this last night, quite a good discussion.

    The Globalists Hate that Salvini is Saving Italy

    “Editor-in-Chief of Arktos, John Bruce Leonard joins Henrik for a discussion about Italy and what swift and dramatic improvements that Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini have managed to bring to his country.”

    So here in the land of NC 9th Congressional District, the Blue Ribbon State Elections Review Board has ruled that a “do-over” election be held. This will most likely include a primary then a general due to recently passed legislation.

    This whole story sounds quite “unusual”. A cynic might say that the whole thing was a sham to start with. Knowing that “We The People” were fed up with Comrade Pittenger, the Mensheviks decided to teach us a lesson.

    As well, we find out that Mr. Harris has had some serious health problems including at least one stroke during the time this election has been under review. And so far as I know, he is refusing to answer any questions about this including if he will run in the new election cycle. Based on my opinion of his Board Testimony, I don’t think he will run again.

    I also would like the Election Board to let us know who to vote for in this new election so that we won’t need to waste any further tax monies on another Review in case we decide to vote for another “Non-State Approved” candidate. Perhaps it would be best if we simply let the Mensheviks provide a list of the “Approved” candidates for all elections so that we not waste valuable time and money on these kind of things. (yes, sarcastic comment on my part, but probably an idea under serious consideration by some)

    Everyone knows that us “smelly Wal-Mart people” are not educated; nor savvy enough to be able understand all the nuances associated with voting. We need to leave such important decisions to the new crop of 16 year old voters that so many states are considering. (yes, again a sarcastic comment on my part, but an idea under serious consideration by some)

    Is it time to light the lanterns in the Old North Church yet??

    Considering how often we at CTH talk about having the popcorn ready, as a certified popcorn junkie, I want to post this PSA:
    1. Franklin’s Original Whirley Pop Stovetop Popcorn Machine Popper (the one with the metal gears, not plastic), about $50
    2. Franklin’s Gourmet Popcorn Butter Flavored Coconut Oil – 30 oz. Tub about $20
    3. Flavacol Seasoning Popcorn Salt 35 OZ about $6
    4. Popcorn (of course) – after numerous tests, I still like Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet Popcorn Kernels – about $18 for a 5lb. jug.
    1. Add one cup popcorn, 3 tablespoons coconut oil and 1 teaspoon Flavacol to a cold Whirley Pop maker.
    2. Put popcorn popper over medium high heat and gently crank occasionally until popcorn starts to pop.
    3. Once popping, slowly crank the popcorn maker constantly in both directions while the popcorn is popping, but don’t force it. As the popcorn fills the pot, it will be harder to crank.
    4. When the popcorn stops popping, remove it from the heat and open the lid to allow the steam to escape.
    5. Enjoy!
    I have been making popcorn this way for about 2 years for me and the wife, my BIL and my two young nephews as well as several people in my office on occasion. I have yet to find a more enjoyable popcorn recipe and I’ve tried many. I’ve become the popcorn chef extraordinaire in my circle of popcorn chowhounds.
    For those who just throw a bag in the microwave, Shame on you!!

    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.

    Socialist revolutionaries are usually in a hurry. They ram through radical political, economic and social change, lest progressivism’s march slows or halts completely.

    At the same time, history has taught them that when moving against societies with durable and cherished traditions of liberty and free-market economics, they must first acclimate those publics to statist ideas before they can actualize them as policy. The revolutionaries’ desire for speed exists in constant tension with the need for gradual conditioning of the masses.

    [Obama] used his considerable rhetorical gifts to sell longstanding progressive ambitions, from massive government spending and higher taxes to suffocating regulation, socialized medicine and government-subsidized unproven green energy projects.

    None of these policies delivered on their false promises, but that was beside the point. The point was to get the American public habituated to the idea of mammoth redistributionist policies.

    The left relentlessly labors to move the Overton window so that what was once considered unthinkable becomes idealized and preferred

    Ocasio-Cortez and her comrades expect us to ridicule then ignore her silly Green New Deal while they work tirelessly to make it a reality. So unless we’re willing to cede our most fundamental freedoms — which often manifest in things like cars, air travel, hamburgers and private health insurance — we must get as serious about their hostile takeover as they are.
