Saturday May 25th – 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 †

      But andy….it’s all going to be OK! We’ve been through this before, and we’ll go through it again…sometime in the natural weather cycle. (One half or the other of my state deals with either drought or flooding every so many years) We just don’t have a dustbowl of long ago, with smart planning after the Dustbowl years, not only for reservoirs; but strategic tree planting too.

      I know it’s interesting though, if you’re not familiar with it. It’s just the way it is when you’ve lived here all your life.

      Watched. Thanks wtd and BigMama.
      If it’s taken down, here are some takeaways to look for:
      the Camp Moria on Lesbos Island in Greece, where some 10,000 refugees are living in dangerous conditions. There is an atheist who has been attacked with knives (and I was concerned that his face was not digitally blurred — does this put him at more risk?) Some of the inhabitants of the camp speculate that some thousand of the refugees in the camp may be ISIS fighters who escaped Syria. If they are going into Europe, good luck Europe, because they are violent criminal people who terrorize others around them, even in the refugee camp.

      Another person to look up is Gemma O’Doherty, investigative reporter from Ireland, who makes the point that Ireland doesn’t have the resources to look after their own citizens, too many of whom are homeless and sleeping in the streets because of skyrocketing housing prices… yet there is money to bring in refugees and house them in hotels etc. Gemma O’D suspects big money and high level corruption is involved.
      https://gemmaodoherty.com/

      Laura Southern also wonders about the money involved, since the people who can make the crossing from Turkey to Lesbos, or Melilla to Spain, have sold their homes and businesses in their home countries, and give human traffickers between $500-$1200 or more per trip on the boats. The traffickers are making millions. The trafficked people end up stateless, without passports that they were instructed to discard, and homeless in European cities, sleeping under bridges in France during the winter. Many of them regret having come, but they don’t have the resources to get back to their home countries.

      It’s an interesting documentary and I liked two things I haven’t seen elsewhere: sympathy for the farmers in Turkey who are being terrorized on their own land, beginning around 2013 women couldn’t go out on the farms alone, and the men are now armed also. The traffickers are gangsters with AK-47s and dangerous people. I was concerned for the 55-year-old farmer who appeared in the documentary as his face was not pixelated and I felt he was at risk, brave man.

      Laura Southern also concludes at the end of the documentary that she found the entire situation of the mass migration much more gray than she had thought it would be at the outset. Migrants are being sold images of Europe that are unreal; traffickers are making boatloads of money, literally; and the rural people of Europe and Turkey are being overwhelmed by foreigners (betrayed by leadership?) The Irish councilman who is asked about money absolutely refuses to speak about it.

    “2+2=5 Under The Democrat’s Equality Act”
    Posted: May 25, 2019 12:01 AM by Lawrence Meyers

    In George Orwell’s 1984, everyman Winston Smith is tortured and brainwashed into truly believing that 2+2=5. Orwell’s message was that an unfettered State would eventually maintain the population in such propaganda-induced fear of its power that people would deny objective reality.

      I disagree with her about plastic straws… I grew up with paper straws and had no problem with them whatsoever. If China is no longer taking our garbage (and why should anybody take some other nation’s garbage) then we need to get on it and figure out how to reduce our waste stream, not just dumping it into the ocean as if the ocean were a gigantic trash heap. I remember going to a Mediterranean beach in the mid-1980s and being disgusted by all the plastic trash (and tar) on the beach. Clean is good. Cleanliness is next to godliness or whatever. Let’s be responsible and clean up after ourselves, why not

    Stated criteria for inclusion in the Global Agg. Last I checked, the “Chinese government” (REALLY?! I took that from Bloomberg’s article supporting the “decision”) policy banks, the “China Development Bank,” Import-Export Bank of China DO NOT QUALIFY. Someone needs to handle this

        https://www.bloomberg.com/company/announcements/bloomberg-confirms-china-inclusion-bloomberg-barclays-global-aggregate-indices/

        FTA:
        January 31, 2019

        “Beijing, January 31, 2019 — Bloomberg today confirmed that Chinese RMB-denominated government and policy bank securities will be added to the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Index starting April 2019 and phased in over a 20 month period. The inclusion is a result of the completion of several planned operational enhancements that were implemented by the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), Ministry of Finance and State Taxation Administration”

        And then this…….”“It’s a pivotal time in the development of China’s markets and inclusion in our Global Aggregate Index is significant for facilitating Chinese market access for global investors,” said Steve Berkley, Global Head of Bloomberg Indices. “Our phased approach to inclusion is designed to give investors ample time to prepare for what we believe will be a positive impact on the investment community.”……….

    How to Bypass the Australian Ministry of Truth
    https://gatesofvienna.net/2019/05/how-to-bypass-the-australian-ministry-of-truth/

    Vlad and I have received a number of complaints from people in Australia who say that BitChute videos never work for them, either as embeds or at the BitChute site itself. It turns out that the Australian government has blocked BitChute so that its citizens can be kept safe from “hate”.
    Fortunately for Australians, the authorities chose the quick and dirty way of banning the site: they screwed up its DNS records on two of the main DNS providers in Australia. There’s a fairly easy way to redo your computer’s settings and bypass the government’s preferred DNS.

      dogsmaw, interesting story behind the Commodores’ video. I learned this when I had saved it over at YT, LOVE this song. A gentleman over there provided this info. in the comments section. He claims to have been their producer.

      You will notice, Lionel Richie is not with the group. He decided to split from the band and go solo (with Motown). He dropped this on the guys and not too long after he left, Motown was going to terminate their contract with the Commodores since Lionel was gone.

      Anyway, the guy who produced this video put it together quickly and presented it to Motown…it became a hit and it changed its mind about terminating their contract. I am saying this from memory and hopefully accurately describing these events. I know bands have undergone personnel changes and it can have a detrimental effect on some of them. But this seemed to have worked out well.

    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.

    Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
