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 †

    Revealed: Far Left Activist Group that Contracted with Fusion GPS is Linked to Soros, the FBI, Sen. Feinstein and a Dark Money Group

    Deripaska describes the ongoing “Russia narrative” as nothing more than a scandal manufactured by the deep state. “Wagging the dog costs money,” writes Deripaska. “So, who is the “funding mechanism” of this “shadowy government?”” Why, none other than billionaire financier George Soros, according to Daniel Jones – as relayed to Congressional investigators by Deripaska’s attorney Adam Waldman:
    [O]n March 16, 2017, Daniel Jones — himself a team member of Fusion GPS, self-described former FBI agent and, as we now know from the media, an ex-Feinstein staffer — met with my lawyer, Adam Waldman, and described Fusion as a “shadow media organization helping the government,” funded by a “group of Silicon Valley billionaires and George Soros.” My lawyer testified these facts to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Nov. 3.

    According to Derispaska — Daniel Jones –- a former FBI investigator, Feinstein staffer and now a Fusion GPS operative – told the Russian Oligarch’s lawyer in March, 2017 that Fusion GPS was funded by “a group of Silicon Valley billionaires and George Soros.“

    This Clinton Foundation Scandal Is Larger than Uranium One – Covered Up by FBI/DOJ Before 2016 Election – Part IX

    A 2016 DOJ criminal investigation was suppressed and buried by the DOJ/FBI that involved a major NY Democratic power broker and the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation.
    The investigation revolved around the illegal sale of controlled US Homeland Security technology to Russia and China in the years before the 2016 election by a company named AGT International.
    The DOJ terminated its internal investigation in 2016 despite clear and irrefutable evidence of criminal activity and hid it from the public!
    In Part I of our series we discussed the Clinton Foundation and the donations to the Foundation from the COB (Martin L. Edelman) and CEO (Mati Kochavi) of AGT International as well as from Sheikhs in the UAE. These donations in the millions of dollars were for favors from the Clintons, in return the Clintons helped promote AGT International.

    In the meetings there was a clear understating that Falcon’s Eyes is the same technology that was used in Abu Dhabi and is just being ‘enhanced’ and ‘repurposed’. AGT International did this worldwide to cover for selling US high tech classified Intel technology overseas. What came next will be reported in our next post in this series.

    It can’t be overstated the amount of defense technology and state secrets that was illegally exported to Russia and China by AGT and its host companies as a result of its international sales!

    The AGT International family of companies participated in numerous corrupt and criminal activities. The leaders of the company were Clinton friends and major donors to the Clinton Foundation. The Clintons in turn helped promote AGT.
    AGT International then participated in numerous shady and criminal activities, the worst of which were selling US ITAR regulated products and information to the Russians and Chinese.
    The DOJ/FBI started an investigation of AGT International but then covered it up. The investigation into the Clinton Foundation and AGT International was material to the 2016 US election and yet the FBI and DOJ concealed it from the American public.
    This is just the tip of the iceberg. The Clinton Foundation and the DOJ and FBI must be investigated and the crimes committed by these entities must be brought to justice!

    Is there a way around the hangup? I’ve found if I post a comment after logging in that usually does the trick, but I don’t like posting sweet nothings just to get logged in.

        Sigh….I’m hearing the same thing from several other Treepers. I’m now suspecting that WP may have added something to their new 5.1 version that only routinely accepts users who use a browser that is programmed to accept “cookies”.

        When we got our last new computer, we went through all the new settings and opted out of allowing “cookies”. I noticed that many sites (YouTube and Photobucket were the biggest) would not let me log in without accepting those cookies.

        For sure….I know WP doesn’t allow commenters who aren’t registered (officially signed in with a legitimate email address) to use the LIKE function.

        I have scoured the WP forums looking for an answer to the repetitive sign-in problem, but as yet, haven’t found an answer. Perhaps WP doesn’t want to advertise this little bit of stealth?

    Associated Press is reporting that a local eyewitness claims that the Boeing passenger jet that crashed this weekend was streaming smoke as it fell out of the sky. If no terrorist group claims responsibility soon the FAA will likely claim pilot error, the plane as built is safe, and move on.

    Yeah!!! senate tee-vee finally adjourned after another rambling of the weasel from Oregon (Markley) and the weasel from Delaware (Carper) just spent that time, telling the Federal Register that they just got back from a taxpayer-funded trip to Guatemala, so now they are the “experts” on the southern border wall.

    Senate tee-vee resumes at 10:00amEST tomorrow (Tues) Also, the Cloture time on Paul Matey for 3rd Circuit Court, will be let to expire early, and they will vote on the nomination @ 2:30pmEST (Of course, that is after the traditional week conference meeting/lunch (taxpayer funded of course) that both parties have on Tuesdays.

    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.

    On the subject of Congress and money I understand a congress person has to cough up beaucoup bucks to be considered for a committee seat, and even more to head that committee, whose main purpose is to hatch bills that favor their special interest bribers. I do not believe this is in accord with the Founding Father’s definition of government, and it is a far cry from representational legislating on behalf of the citizens who elected them. Government is in need of dismantling to bare bones and reconstituted minus its current accrued corruption.

    Last night I was watching an episode of the old Night Gallery show and I came in just after the second story started. I had never seen it before, a young boy was obsessed with snow, Orson Welles was narrating, I’m not going to spoil it for anyone. 🙂 At first the story seemed contrived and affected but it wasn’t long before I was mesmerized. I found out that it’s a short story, “Silent Snowm Secret Snow” by Conraid Aiken. I read the story today and now I want to watch the Night Gallery version of it again but I can’t find it. I found a video of another version. Here;s a link to a pdf of the story and then links to the videos, if anyone is interested. The video is only 17 minutes long.
