Friday October 18th – 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 †

      Makes me wonder how many people he interviewed that actually knew that those things went extinct about 65 million years ago.
      Do they still teach science in school and cover this?
      If so, apparently not well enough.
      Perhaps they made science an elective class in favor of gender studies as a requirement.

      This looks like he was in San Diego. Honestly, when I look at some of my fellow Californians, I fear that if the world were left up to them, our species be extinct in about a week…………..maybe less.

      The good news is, not all Southern Californians are this bat-sh*t stupid (and you can go to other parts of the country to see that – granted we do have a concentration of really stupid people). However, the good news is that we have a large military presence and many many conservatives who are a bit more tuned in. So yay for that 😀

      Still – pretty darned funny. I don’t think I could have kept a straight face.

    Pardon vs. Justification

    Did you read, recently, about the man, named Zimmerman, who spent nearly twenty-five years in prison for a murder which, it is now clear, he never committed! The mistake was discovered two years ago, and he was released, of course, but only after spending almost a quarter of a century in prison for a crime he did not commit!

    This was a grim mistake, but even at that, it must be wonderful in such a case, to be free — and to have people actually sympathize with you! Yet, after two years of liberty, Zimmerman says he still feels a bit numb. Waking up mornings he still imagines he hears the harsh sound of the prison bell, and looking about he still thinks he sees bars on the windows.

    Things could be worse, though: Suppose he were guilty of the crime, merely pardoned and released. Then everyone would be saying: “There goes that murderer. They pardoned him. Don’t get too friendly with him.” The stigma would always remain – -as long as he lived.

    Let us thank God that believers in Christ are not merely pardoned. Rom. 3:24 declares that we are “justified freely by [God’s] grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” Christ died for our sins and satisfied the just claims of the Law, and more: through the Holy Spirit He revolutionizes our lives and makes new creations out of us, for “If any man be in Christ,” says II Cor. 5:17, “he is a new creation.”

    “For by grace are ye saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works lest any man should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Eph. 2:8-10).

    By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam

    https://www.bereanbiblesociety.org/pardon-vs-justification/

    Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

    Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    Well the city of New Orleans has politically solved the problem of the Hard Rock Hotel collapse – they’ve brought in experts from outside of the city. That way if it all goes to hell they can all point to the left and say it was some furriner’s fault.

    Biggest problem now is the two huge construction cranes towering over the half demolished building. Both are moving slightly, one more than the other,and if they topple they’ll cause massive destruction not seen downtown since Katrina. The horizontal jib, counterweight and apex of each crane weighs over 145,000 pounds – and then there’s the vertical mast. So far even the largest crane company in the US can’t figure out what to do BUT someone’s come up with an idea – controlled demolition.

    Sometime tomorrow some company that’s been planting charges will push a button and the towers will ‘implode’. Don’t ask me how you implode a giant vertical crane tower with a monstrous horizontal arm without making one helluva mess but my job was making things go boom period, no requirement for neatness. If you look at the pictures (just Google ‘Hard Rock New Orleans’ and stand back) those cranes are where they’ll be when they’re blown, the horizontal arms can’t be moved. On the sides of the building are narrowish city streets and other buildings, including the nextdoor Saenger theater that has just undergone a multimillion dollar renovation and is close enough to already have received roof damages from the original collapse.

    City’s racing a possible tropical storm that would have rain coming in as early as 6 AM Friday and staying until about 6 PM along with winds around 20MPH that would be channeled by surrounding buildings. Looks like they may try to blow it as early as dawn depending on where the rain is in the early AM.

    Stay tuned, this should be over by breakfast – I don’t relish the thought of their leaving a set of cranes packed with explosives swaying in the wind but I can’t see them blowing them in the dark either. Oh to live in interesting times but safely outside of a dysfunctional city.

      Unless the footing is destroyed I’d think they’d be able to stabilize the cranes with anchored guy wires and then take them apart from the top down.

        You’d think but they’ve cut some sections of the masts and most likely the jibs and are going to blow them, trying to drop it in the building’s footprint.

        The timetable’s now up to sometime before late afternoon but the rain chances go to 45% at about 7 AMish, over 70% by 10ish and star above 60% thru about 4 PM. Sundown is 6:30.

        They’ve removed cars from the exclusion zone, have turned off underground gas and water lines and done what they can to minimize 2ndary issues but you’re gonna want enough time after the blow to react to the aftermath in good light.

        In my mind I can see them sequentially cutting the jib and then trying to drop the mast like a chimney but then I had a plan and positive thoughts about my first marriage.

        Forgot: for whatever reason both cranes have become unstable, one’s moved about 6″ out of the vertical and is swaying slightly and the second is moving but moving less. There’s really no place to anchor any guys, it’s narrow city streets with old building scrunched right up against the hotel. The jib’s are weighing in at over 145,000 pounds each and is well over 100 feet in the air, well over 100. You’d need huge guys deeply anchored and the location doesn’t permit that. Once that crane starts to fall it would be well over 70 tons at the top swinging around on a multi-ton arm pivoting from the base.

            I can get an idea of how they’ll do it but, as I said, precision demo was not in my job description. I’m just stuck on the huge counterweight at the end of the short jib…if they cut that jib on either side of the mast it’s going to be an instantaneous change in balance and they basically have to drop these monsters inside of the building’s footprint – and only half of the upper stories are down and they are at an angle so I see crane landing on footprint and sliding…question is how much.

            The guys doing this have guts and balls. We saw a few shots of these guys being lifted hundreds of feet up in bucket cages by another crane. They had to carefully be brought within working distance of a swaying and unstable crane, cut the steel members and plant charges…again, while in a bucket dangling from a cable hoisted up by another monster crane on the street. Feel the pucker factor rising?

              And most contemporary Americans have absolutely no idea about the skills level the guys in the bucket-cages bring to the job. There’s no training video for what they’re having to do hundreds of feet up in a swaying buck-cage. And if the damaged crane starts to fall it’s the crane operator who’s going to have to swing those guys out of the way. This is one of the things that I immediately figured out about Trump. He’s from this work environment. He can look at this job and immediately understand what’s going on. The twinkletoes in the bureaucracy are clueless . . .

    From wiseGEEK…WOW!

    The longest lightning bolt ever recorded stretched 199.5 miles (321 km) —
    nearly the entire length of Oklahoma.

    Oklahoma might be the place “where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain,” but it’s also the place where a lightning bolt set a record by stretching
    nearly 200 miles in 2007. The ability to measure the length of lightning is
    a relatively new development, and it was put to use to measure a single
    strike that covered an astonishing 199.5 miles (321 km) — almost the
    entire width of the state of Oklahoma.

              City’s finally starting to address the very real possibility of damages to surrounding buildings. Height of one crane is~300 feet AGL, the 2nd ~270 feet AGL. If they hit on the flattened roof they should only fall about half that distance but they’re still going to be packing some energy when they hit.

      A lot of us have been asking that for DECADES. The FBI almost set up mini housing projects across from one well before 911, spent a long time doing observation but never moved on it. Same with Islamberg when it was the new Jamaat al-Fuqra community, or the subsequent compounds it’s established, they’re almost immune.

      After years of being prodded by scared residents living by Islamberg the state of New York conducted a scheduled visit to Islamberg where the visiting pols saw no sign of weapons, explosives or any militant activities and gave the camp a 100% clean bill of doctrinal health. One wonders what the officials in those other JaF infected rural areas are doing. No sweat, they’ll give their guns to Beto once the non-Moslem sectors of America are disarmed and the police reined in.

      Group I was working with in the months after 911 brought up the idea of Moslem jihadi groups buying up rural properties and establishing compounds. We were soundly pulled in, being told that area was solely the FBI’s province unless we could show one was a clear danger to military operations and then we could look at it but still had to turn it over to the Bureau.

      The Bureau also had an op going on that implicated the Bing Sheikh in the first WTC attack and possibly could have prevented it but we see how that turned out. Just sit back and enjoy the entertainment venues provided by the state’s distraction services, you’ll feel better soon.

    THE KEY TO MISSIONARY DEVOTION

    “For His name’s sake they went forth.” 3 John 7

    Our Lord has told us how love to Him is to manifest itself. “Lovest thou Me?” “Feed My sheep” – identify yourself with My interests in other people, not, identify Me with your interests in other people. 1 Corinthians xiii. 4-8 gives the character of this love, it is the love of God expressing itself. The test of my love for Jesus is the practical one, all the rest is sentimental jargon.

    Loyalty to Jesus Christ is the supernatural work of Redemption wrought in me by the Holy Ghost Who sheds abroad the love of God in my heart, and that love works efficaciously through me in contact with everyone I meet. I remain loyal to His Name although every common-sense fact gives the lie to Him, and declares that He has no more power than a morning mist.

    The key to missionary devotion means being attached to nothing and no one saving Our Lord Himself, not being detached from things externally. Our Lord was amazingly in and out among ordinary things; His detachment was on the inside towards God. External detachment is often an indication of a secret vital attachment to the things we keep away from eternally.

    The loyalty of a missionary is to keep his soul concentratedly open to the nature of the Lord Jesus Christ. The men and women Our Lord sends out on His enterprises are the ordinary human stuff, plus dominating devotion to Himself wrought by the Holy Ghost.

      Interesting, especially as the Moslems stated at the civil law side, an area they’ve used in places such as England to undermine native law. Where there aren’t sharia courts per se there are Moslem Arbitration Tribunals operating as an alternative resolution system using sharia but under British law. Yeah, tape that goat head onto a fish and watch it swim.

      I expect to see them established here as arbitration venues for Moslems wishing to have their disputes resolved under their ‘cultural’ values…whether non-Moslems could be dragged in is a question but the idea of even letting those ‘courts’ exist for intra-Moslem disputes is, to me, like allowing the first termite to set up shop in the balsa wood pile.

      Much of Canadian media is as corrupt as ours. They seldom report on Trudeau’s REAL malfeasance but always report on the LIES told about our President. Collusion with the miscreants is the common thread for North American “reporters.”

      None of my friends or relatives are voting for the Liberal Party of Canada, thank God. But Trudeau is still popular with his leftie and Muslim pals as evidenced by Obama’s endorsement.

    City of New Orleans dodged a bullet this morning, the storm moved on a more easterly track, sparing it the winds and rain predicted. Wind is below 15 MPH from the NE, possibility of rain is sharply lowered and the new expected demolition time of about noon tomorrow – the boom time’s been moved forward 24 hours . I wonder if the weatherguessers may have given the public the more titillating prediction out of the ‘cone of expectation’ to play into the excitement. Naaaah, never happen.

    Mayor announced the 24 hour delay in a news conference where she spent the first 5 minutes using her personal pronouns telling us what she did…then getting on to the issue of the demolition. She used ‘I’, ‘me’, or ‘myself’ and avoided the ‘we’, ‘they’ or ‘us’. Usual politician. Fire chief, who seems to be the face who’ll be remembered if this all goes south, is right up there next to her. It becomes a mees then he’ll be put in front of her when the press beatings start and if it all goes well he’s close enough for the mayor to jump in front and take the credit.

    Turkish Cypriot President Mustafa Akıncı has been receiving death threats due to his criticism of Erdogan’s Syrian invasion. He said that it mirrored the invasion of Cyprus in 1974.

      She must be thinking Tulsi is gaining too much traction, and can’t be trusted to keep secrets.
      I hope Tulsi sues her for this malicious slander.
      What right has she to say such a thing?
      Donald Trump was right, she is a nasty, nasty woman.

    New information has allowed the Marine Corps to expand on the historical background of the iconic photo of the second flag raising on Mount Suribachi, which captured the “uncommon valor” of all Marines who fought in the battle of Iwo Jima.

    Haha saw this on Foxnews.com: “Biden, who has been thought of as a liability to his father’s presidential bid in some Democratic circles, maintained his relationship with his father is strong and that they talk every day.”

    They talk every day and not once has Joe ever asked him what he does for a living. Yeah. Right.

    BTW why are my comments always moderated? Was it something I said?

    To Ponder

    Let me ponder on the repentance of King Manasseh and God’s forgiveness (II Chronicles 33):

    1. How Manasseh, when living as a slave in a foreign land, recognised his sin and repented, and prayed to God for forgiveness.

    2. How God forgave him, and freed him from slavery.

    3. How, after that, Manasseh did that which is good in the sight of the Lord until his death, and reigned in peace.

    From “The Prologue from Ohrid” by Saint Nikolai (Serbian-born Bishop who reposed in the USA and was a former prisoner at Dachau) for today – October 5th – on the traditional Calendar of the Orthodox Christian Church.

    The Holy Hieromartyr Dionysios, Bishop of Alexandria, died in the year 265 and is honored today, October 5th, on the traditional Calendar of the Orthodox Christian Church.

    Saint Dionysios was well educated in a worldly sense, but was unexpectedly able to read some of the Epistles of the Holy Apostle Paul and came to faith in Christ and was Baptized by Bishop Dimitrios of Alexandria. Later, as Bishop of Alexandria himself, Saint Dionysios served God and the people of God under very difficult circumstances. He actually lived in hiding for three years. At one point he had to confront the Millenarian heresy, which he did by debating with a man named Korakion for three whole days. At the end of the debate, Korakion and his followers cast off their false teaching of Millenarianism and accepted the Orthodox teaching of Saint Dionysios.

    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 Gen. 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.
