Dear MAGA: 20190324 Open Topic


This very special Solidarity SUNDAY
open thread is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody
to post whatever they feel they would like
to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA world.


Say what you want, comment on what other people said,
comment on people’s comments.
Keep it civil.  Treehouse rules, but expect lots of QAnon.


See the January 1st daily thread for the rules of the road,
which are few but important.


Remember – your greatest gift to President Trump is FIVE WORDS:
I AM PRAYING FOR YOU

Today’s Header: Perpetua and Felicity are two women who were martyred in the city of Carthage in North Africa (present-day Tunisia) and received great veneration from the 4th century onwards. Their execution was intended as entertainment for the crowd, some spectators, inspired by the martyrs’ fearlessness, became converts to Christianity. The image shows them exchanging the kiss of peace in the arena as they are about to be martyred by wild beasts. Learn more …

Solidarity in Suffering

[Jesus] went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground,
praying, “My Father! If it is possible,
let this cup of suffering be taken away from me.

Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”

Matthew 26:39

From the sufferings of Jesus two thousand years ago, to the sufferings of His followers today, two realities are present. First, suffering is something we do not seek and do not find easy to endure.
Second, we are frequently called to remember, to pray for, to stand with those who are suffering now, and to expect we too will endure suffering in this life.

And since we are his children, we are his heirs.
In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory.
But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.
Y
et what we suffer now is nothing
compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.

Romans 8:17-18

As some were careful to point out after the Mind Control Media blew up the news feeds regarding the shooting in New Zealand, there have been some serious attacks on Christians going on around the world that are getting no attention at all.
How do we stand in solidarity with those suffering for their faith in Christ? How do we prepare ourselves to “endure hardship like a good soldier” ourselves, even as Paul exhorted us?
Are we spiritually prepared for persecution, or would we find ourselves with Peter, quickly denying our Lord and master when our lives are threatened?
One of the ways we prepare to live (or die) for Christ is to stand in solidarity now with our Christian family around the world that are suffering persecution every day.
And by reading the letters to the Church with a more careful eye on the topic of suffering. This is such a common theme in the scriptures, that I had a hard time selecting which passages to include here.
You might be surprised that such a study was encouraging to me. I feel bolder, stronger, braver for having spent time with those who have suffered.
It has been a humbling experience to bring up topics like this amongst our Q Treepers. Your honest and thoughtful responses have deepened my respect for you all.
Thank you.
Think*3


He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

For the more we suffer for Christ,
the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.

Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you.

Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer.

2 Corinthians 1:4-6

Persecution at a Glance (by Open Doors)

Today, just like in the book of Acts, Christians are persecuted all over the world for following Jesus.
Christians remain one of the most persecuted religious groups in the world. While Christian persecution takes many forms, it is defined as any hostility experienced as a result of identification with Christ. Christian torture remains an issue for believers throughout the world including the risk of imprisonment, loss of home and assets, physical torture, beheadings, rape and even death as a result of their faith.
Trends show that countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East are intensifying persecution against Christians, and perhaps the most vulnerable are Christian women, who often face double persecution for faith and gender.
Every day we receive new reports of Christians who face threats, unjust imprisonment, harassment, beatings and even loss of family because of their faith in Jesus.
open-doors-prayer-persecuted_WIDE
Every month:

  • 255 Christians are killed
  • 104 are abducted
  • 180 Christian women are raped, sexually harassed or forced into marriage
  • 66 churches are attacked
  • 160 Christians are detained without trial and imprisoned

Every year, we release the World Watch List—a global indicator of countries where human and religious rights are being violated, and those countries most vulnerable to societal unrest and destabilization.

  • 215 million Christians experience high levels of persecution in the countries on the World Watch List.
  • This represents 1 in 12 Christians worldwide.

“We only knew martyrdom from films, but martyrdom was reintroduced and it strengthened our faith because these people, these 21 martyrs, lived among us.”
For Malak, the reintroduction of modern-day martyrdom on a worldwide scale is especially sobering. He is the father of one of the 21 martyrs killed by Islamic State militants on the Libyan coast.    . . .
“I am proud that my father is on the pictures in the church,” Fifi Shehata, the daughter of Maged, said in an interview last year. “It’s a big honor… At first, it was hard to deal with the fact that our father was martyred, but later we felt comforted by God.”
Malak looks beyond the senseless killings and shares an eternal perspective. His words reflect hope, reminding us of second-century Christian author Tertullian’s famous observation: “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.”
“To be honest, I was happy when I saw my son in the video,” he told World Watch Monitor, “because then I knew the place he had gone to. And when I saw he died with the name of Jesus on his lips, I was very proud. I rejoiced!”
Malak said his own faith, as well as the faith of the whole Christian community in Egypt, had grown as a response to the evil carried out on Sunday, February 15, 2015. Indeed, his insights are proven. Our partners in Egypt continue to share that the Church is growing as a result of persecution,  as increasing numbers of Muslims leave Islam and turn to Christ.
He is thankful for this church being built in the name of all 21 martyrs: “That is even better,” he says. “The faith of all of us grew.”
The wife of 29-year-old martyr Samuel Abraham echoed Malak. Only a week after learning her husband was one of the 21 men, she told Vice News: “ISIS thought the killing of our relatives would destroy us. It did not. It revived us.”
In October 2017, Libya officially confirmed it had found the bodies of the beheaded Christians, and in May 2018, the families of the 20 Egyptian men received their loved ones’ remains, which were buried in [a new church dedicated to their memory].

Tired Mom

You caught me on a night when I am so fearful. The leftists at my son’s college are going after him, as he has dared to speak out. I am worried about my job. So much going on! This is a good time to get some perspective, and you helped me get a grip. I need to TRUST in the Lord. Thank you!

Amen.

Tired Mom, I’ll pray for you and your son.

Tired Mom

You are all making me cry! Thank you all so much. Your prayers for my son, especially, are just exactly the favors from God that I’ve been praying for myself. For my son, the only way out of this situation is to go through it. And what things look like when he comes out on the other side…your prayers give me confidence to put that piece in God’s loving hands. All will be well, no matter what happens.

2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
This too shall pass….. Praise the Lord with Gladness
Prayers to you and your son.

God Bless you and son, Tired Mom.

This scripture was implanted in my heart when I was a youngster, through the help of my mother whom impressed it upon me, never failed to get me through those storms in life.
Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thy heart, and lean not on your own understanding. But, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thy paths.

ladypenquin

Thank you for sharing, Tired Mom.
You are not alone. In fact, TTT’s story of Saints Felicity and Perpetua seems timely – courage for our worries and knowing others have them too, (we do) – we’re strengthened together to soldier on and face challenges.
Thanks TTT for bringing focusing on the persecution and martyrdom regarding Christians today – that’s what’s behind everything happening, including the shift in America over the past 50 yeas. Have not the Fascists (Dems) been at work to undermine our faith-based nation? It’s very clear now as we see wrong marketed as “good” and good portrayed as evil.

John Samson

Be of good heart.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind
Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 1:7-8

Chimpy

Sorry to hear that, Tired Mom.
I’ve told my kids, one who is in college and one in HS, to keep their mouths closed when it comes to politics. From abuse by leftists to unfair grading from socialist teachers, the possible retribution’s are real.
We live in scary times. Is this what “normal” Germans experienced at the beginning of Hitler’s rise? Weren’t the brown shirts essentially bullies and wasn’t Nazi media/news controlled by the left? Scary times.

Spab

Your heart’s cry drove me to the Scriptures to find some consolation and encouragement for you. Here is on what I believe the Lord would have you place your hope. Isaiah 41:11-13 and Psalm 73. My prayers for your son will to be to walk in faith of his Creator.

Tired Mom

My heart is full as I read all the supportive comments and Scripture. Words cannnot properly express my gratitude to all of you for your kind words and prayers.

kalbren2r1

We are in the middle of a crisis too and yes, trust in the LORD is a must but sometimes hard. This is a great place for encouragement! THX T*3 and W! T his message was especially encouraging!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Here is a very remarkable video I found on Gab. It deals with much of what you spoke of, T3 – centered around Christchurch – but not from the same perspective. The author doesn’t speak from a *Christian* perspective, but he does speak from a TRUTH perspective, and it’s INCREDIBLY REFRESHING. His honesty makes the situation BEARABLE.
I, personally, don’t believe that there WERE actually murders in Christchurch. I believe this was a government deception operation – a leftist propaganda operation – and that the people in the New Zealand government behind it, as well as OUR Democrats and CIA, need to go to prison for it. If there actually WERE murders, and I am wrong about that, then I still believe it is a government operation, and there need to be fitting punishments. Based on what was done to Timothy McVeigh, that would include the death penalty for any CIA involved in the operation.
Here is the video.

THIS^^^ so perfectly said

JasonD

That was eloquently and concisely put. The dude has been thinking on these things some.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I think Thomas Wictor’s assessment of the Christchurch shooter as a nihilist, whether real or fake, was brilliant.
Trump understands the answer – LOVE. Whether it’s love of God, love of country, love of the universe, or love of each other, our higher and purer loves are what can bear all things.
Very important is love of TRUTH, because this leads to love of the SPIRIT OF TRUTH.

coosmama

Mark Taylor addressed NZ in his 3/22/19 interview, link is below. Very intriguing!

Chimpy

I can’t agree more.

WOW!! He is Powerful!! Thank you Wolfie!!🐺🐺 The immediate donning of head scarves and banning of guns in NZ! SMH and WTF! THis was Deep State GLOBALISM FF without a doubt!! CHANGE MY MIND!

NZ is in trouble, but it actually happened about two years ago, when they elected this crazy woman and she immediately said that “capitalism had failed”. It’s clear now – she was basically the Obama (Sandy Hook) and the AOC of NZ.
“‘Capitalism has failed’: Jacinda Ardern signals a major economic shift”comment image

Marica

Why does she remind me of AOC? not kidding…

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

It’s like they’re CHOSEN to be mesmerizing.

wheatietoo

They are, Wolfie…they are chosen for that ‘talent’.
I read something way back, about BHO, written by a guy who was a ‘community organizer’ in Chicago.
He was one of the ones who noticed that Hussein had a talent for mesmerizing a room full of recruits.
It was a talent to…agitate.
Hussein was never a community organizer.
He was the one that the organizers would put out there to Agitate people…agitate them into action.
Hillary spotted that ‘talent’ in Bill, too.
She knew how unlikeable she is, at an early age.
So she took on Bill as her ‘talent’ to use to achieve her quest for power.

GA/FL

Very perceptive and very true, Wheatie!

GA/FL

Throughout history there have been ‘persuaders’ like AOC, Bill Clinton and even Obama, who could win votes, hearts, money. For example, Joseph Smith, one of the inventors of Mormonism, was a ‘flim-flammer and philanderer’ who could talk people out of money and take liberties with women. He and his cohorts were run out of territory after territory for the crimes of bank fraud and seducing females. He found it so easy to influence people, he even thought of running for President. He was finally murdered by a group of vigilantes while he was jailed.
The Bible talks about these kinds of people:
II Timothy 3:6 – (NIV) They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires,
II Timothy 3:13 – (KJV) But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
2 John 1:7 – For many seducers are gone out into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ
is come in the flesh: this is a seducer and an antichrist. …
Titus 1:10 – For there are also many disobedient, vain talkers, and seducers:
especially they who are of the circumcision …

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Great point about Cankles and “Electable Hubs”! She did get some kind of hold on him early, too. Interesting. And now I’m thinking that British commies helped her.

Chimpy

It’s the choppers.

New Zealand is China’s gateway to its future claim of Antarctica, BTW. Just throwing that out there to the people who plan for the future. The ChiComs are painfully easy to read.

andrew1979

bro – this is a disease.
it is all 100% fake.
it is 100% being planned, organized and carried out.
people have not wanted to see it for so long and you couldn’t even BEGIN to tell people things.
these people are producing absolute cults here.
everyone mentioned is involved.
this is not a game and i’m not just quoting there.
this is real and very very powerful.
people do not want to think for themselves anymore.
if this incident is not confronted directly – after all the other ones before it and we know them all. if it is not confronted, i am not sure where we go from here. we don’t have time to keep letting them run with the rope or whatever. this isn’t adam schiff. this isn’t rich people indulging. this isn’t non profits funneling money to caravans.
this is starting to get to another level not that all the other levels are not important – the DIFFERENCE is these events ARE NEVER QUESTIONED.
honestly every freaking time something “BAD” happens, i hold my breath and i HOPE that there is not a “message of unity and sympathy and support and we stand with you we love you” from the white house. but every time it comes. yeah, ok, i mean, WHAT are you going to say? and we can even say, hey we know it’s fake we have the crisis actor crap all figured out. guess what? we get banned for that. silenced. removed from public record, and now people are in jail. they did nothing but possess a video that was live streamed on FACEBOOK. they had a PDF. they are in jail. islam is getting fellated and we are now white supremist nationalist bigots again?
it has to start getting confronted. the cheek only turns so many times because and here’s my main point: this isn’t 20 years ago and we have 20 more years to discover and analyze and figure out FF’s and “training exercises” nearby, or a common event that we start to look for. it’s 2019 and they are now after we’ve been training and accustomed and accepted it (populace at large) and they’ve scared mothers and fathers who won’t even let their kids play with a tree branch shaped like a gun, they have taken control of the “faith based” crap. internet is closing down – did you see that thing about the telecoms there? fucking firewall filters RIGHT AT THE SOURCE. you don’t choose to put them on your computer “Get NetNanny And ProTect Your Family! parents can turn it off with a code” NOW THE FREAKING INFRASTRUCTURE IS THE NANNY.
vpn, whatver. have you been to the datacenter personally and seen what’s up with the company giving you that vpn? have you done a forensic (michael can) on their network farm? wait, i can get 8chan in new zealand when i get ViperVPN for only 9.99 a month! well of course you can. that market is still new so it will be given it’s time to make it’s money just like facebook was when they went public and then were worth $500 billion because of your private data? that’s vaporware because what if we take our data! nope, they have it linked in every site. back to vpn – they KNOW not everyone will get one – and people will still get glimpses over the fence – but it will end. one of the vpn companies one day will be in the news – whoops they were hacked. their keys stolen. whoops they were sharing systems with XVpn and YVpn too because nobody realized they were all fronts shilling to get you to buy their product under the guise of choice. i think you can realize this is an inevitability. we used to think google was probably good too.
so that’s why we have to confront these things now. it’s not like it’s a tit for tat FF game here, it’s only on one side. so only one side can benefit. even when they have a dud like Nasim at youtube. i mean, yeah it petered out very quickly – super fast memory hole. she got a little love from some 4chan jokers who feigned their love and fascination with her because she was /their_girl/ – but even a dud – they lost NOTHING – we lost time and effort and memoryholing. when they do succeed it is with great success.

JasonD

Andrew, we (as in humanity) are slowly but surely constructing our own hell. There are those of us who are actively aware (Q’Treep’s included), and pushing back.
Most “good” people don’t know exactly what is wrong, but they sense it – this is the zeitgeist.
“We” are lulling ourselves into into this, slowly but inexorably. This is going to boil over into a battle that is not going to be very pretty. We may forestall this for a time, with MAGA and KAG – but humanity has to relearn the lessons of the past – WE ARE NOT GODS …

wheatietoo

No one ‘plays the victim’ better than muslims.
They have mastered it…it’s like an art form for them.
They even school their younglings on how to do it!
There were instructions in an AlQaeda manual, on how to beat yourself up in captivity.
So that they could blame it on their captors.
Islamists think we are fools…and therefore deserve to be preyed upon.
The ChiComs believe this too.
It is something that they have in common.
Totalitarian rule is also something that Islam and the ChiComs have in common.
Chinese culture has that thing about ‘saving face’…so that is probably why we don’t see them feigning the victim — it would mean losing face to admit that they were victimized.
But they may decide that it’s a valuable weapon, though…and figure out a way to square it with ‘saving face’.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Hey – that’s what the “white left” (basically American SJW) hoaxers are for. The ChiComs long ago figured out how to make sure THEY were never caught doing anything. It’s AMAZING how well it works, too.

The sh!tholes of Hamas are the proving grounds of this evil – MK on the children as soon as they are born …

Hope this posts. Read article in the a.m., site down in the p.m.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Excellent. This includes some of the top reasons the “shooting” was fake, but not all. Another reason why I suspect the Fake News Socialist Anglosphere may lose complete control of narrative here.
FOTM was closed by WordPress earlier – if they are censored again, we may act accordingly.

drillerelite

Good article bfly. I’ve watched the video several times and it seems more fake each time. There are so many things that don’t add up and actually impossible. The way the bodies drop and react when shot, the disappearing casings – I did not hear one shell casing bounce off the pavement, not one. The shotgun that does nothing to the windshield and the report of each weapon fired sounded all wrong. Shooting at nobody down the street. Also, each time you watch it seems more obvious that some CGI was used. Just weird

Great Report Sir.

Thanks! COMMUNIST FAKE NEWS is going down – and the TINDER in NEW ZEALAND will catch fire very soon witgh SPARKS provided by the collapse of the two-year-long, fake-news-promoted, LAWFARE CON JOB.
TWO YEARS OF BULLSHIT to try to take down Trump. Our FAKE NEWS is not deserving of ANY respect.

Plain Jane

Excellent. Thank you Wolfie.

Plain Jane

So glad he touched on the Christian genocide in Africa. Wish I would have seen the video before I posted what my priest said. Apparently I was trying to verify it while Wolfie was posting the video.

Plain Jane

Prayer for you and yours Tired Mom.

Tired Mom

Thank you. I appreciate it.

Plain Jane

Good thread T3. Timely also.
We went to the Sat evening Mass today. Priest mentioned that almost as many people were killed recently in a church in Africa as were in the NZ. I cannot find anything on it, but it appears that maybe Business Insider has something about it, but I cannot get past the barriers to read.

andrew1979

probably another fake if business insider is the source. in my estimation they are one of those places that drops stories for them so they get picked up or “verified later” if necessary – like you did verifying your priests tale about he poor folks murdered in their prayer hall.

Plain Jane

I’m thinking our priest has access to current info that is happening in Africa. We have had some missionary priests from Nigeria speak at Massin the past couple of years.
In the brief sermon he told us it’s happening in Christian communities. He’s a MAGA priest.

churchmouse

‘He’s a MAGA priest.’ Rare as hen’s teeth.

Plain Jane

Not around these parts. Thank God.

churchmouse

Count yourself blessed.

Plain Jane

I know.
A lot of the seminaries gotswept out during the first waves of the scandals so a lot of the young priests are priests for the correct reasons.
The priests that I know who were engineers before going into seminary are really good. There are quite a few scattered around.

GA/FL

ACTUALLY, there were 150 killed by (insert vilest expletives) Islamists in the Nigerian Church – 3 TIMES AS MANY AS NZ.
There have been 34,768 documented, deadly Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11/01 – an average of 5-6 ISLAMIC terrorist attacks.
2019 list – https://www.thereligionofpeace.com/attacks/attacks.aspx?Yr=2019
Graph – attacks by ideology:comment image
The rise of Islam coincides with the devolution into sin and decadence of Western culture.
See Isaiah 10:5 – Islam/Assyria is a rod of discipline.
Isaiah 26:3, 30:15
Isaiah 31:8-9 – The sword of man cannot defeat Islam. Only the Sword (Word) of GOD can defeat Islam.
We must return to obedience to the Word/Will of GOD to defeat our enemies.
II Chronicles 7:14, Nehemiah chapters 8-9.

Plain Jane

Thank you GA/FL. Lamestream doesn’t bother to publicize those attacks on Christians nor on Jews.

I am daring to imagine…
Of an America where one’s potential is not determined by their political affiliations, but by power of their dreams.
Of an America where journalism isn’t a closed industry where only well connected insiders are allowed to participate, where the old rules are shattered and the freedom of the internet press is unshackled and its chains are forever broken.
Of an America where the winners and losers are not decided by the needs of the bureaucratic state and their puppet oligopolies or a few Silicon Valley firms, but by the free, uncoerced, and undistorted decisions of the market rewarding those with the grit, determination, vision, and perseverance to forge a better way.
Of an America where we buy durable products for life, where we repair appliances rather than throw them out, where we can expect a tool to be good for years and not for days, where made in America reflects the pride of workmanship creating a quality that is the envy of the world.
Of an America that doesn’t treat nature as something that humans must necessarily neglect and allow to fall into scarcity and rot, but a nature that humanity has a God-given responsibility to steward, to make flourish, to bring about lands that are teeming with life and abundance.
Of an America where our unity in our national identity as a free people surpasses, heals, and erases the divisions of the past, and we truly live up to our national mottoes and creeds – E Pluribus Unum, One Nation Under God.
Of an America where God and Christianity are not an embarrassment, are not treated as out of mainstream, or that are treated with neglect, indifference, or condescending hostility by a media concerned only with shaping and propagating a narrative rather than providing an honest and penetrating view of the facts.
Of an America whose educational systems are unchained from the overbearing domination of government controls and political ideologues, where education is first and foremost about forming the moral character of young people to develop outstanding citizens, and where the training of life skills is not subject to the failed experiments of social engineers bent on making the United States a weak and uneducated nation.
Of an America where the Christian church, as in the early days of the Republic as observed by Alexis de Tocqueville. is seen as the social fabric and lifeblood of the nation, and not the media, the socials, or the government.
Of an America where one can go to school, or to church, or to work, and have the freedom and confident to know that they won’t be expelled, excommunicated, shunned, or fired for wearing the wrong hat or expressing politically incorrect views.
Of an America where the law enforcement community is not bound by corruption but has the freedom and initiative to prevent the types of mob violence and acts of mayhem that have been used to manipulate us for too long.
Of an America where the media understands its responsibility not to glorify and draw the wrong kind of attention to those who would destroy us or seek to strike fear into our people.

That’s two. Perfectly said . Not unicorns and rainbows but freedom and respect, honesty.

Satan won’t appreciate this – we better have a good plan for Lucifer.

The background on this appears to be related to a child porn kingpin in an Irish prison FINALLY being released to the FBI *today* after a 6-year fight against extradition. Probably due to a vote on the Irish Supreme Court flipping b/c of the Mueller stand-down, IMO. Anyway, the thread resulted in THIS meme….

Looks like the Bards believe in the Purification of Pain – PoP
Must be why the Dims look a bit deflated all of a sudden – its either due to their bursting bubbles of BS – or the anticipation of PoP.
So – B_BoB … or … PoP? Either way, expect the emanation of some strange new sounds emanating from stage left.

andrew1979

anyone know the “length limit” of a post? i am almost on autopilot here and i just typed a huge post that was something i spent a LOT of time thinking about today… don’t want to post it and have it be stupid and take up crazy space…
thanks in advance.

andrew1979

it’s pretty long and probably a been up for 50 hours post that could be all cut down, but i was just rambling away. there was a point. i’ll revisit it. thank you as always and for the support you give everyone including myself 🙂

andrew1979

ever since i was a kid and started writing for school or whatever, it has always been in a stream of consciousness. the drawback is the speed of thought vs fingers and keyboard. if i stop to edit i will lose all i am thinking about – i will get it back – but in the meantime i will describe two or three other aspects of the same thing to illustrate the big point!
i am not a pro writer and i never even care when i make a spelling mistake or what not. i am not and will never be a grammar police, or worry about how anyone posts or formats them. that can irritate others though. and i have been known to be able to generate the “good stuff” that will get you all those “A++” papers and science exhibit reports, and lap experiment formats – WHEN I HAVE TO. 🙂
it does not mean i am not professional or a fail at work or life – it’s just the way i groove to thinking and trying to write it down – this isn’t a paper for class in other words to me so standards be damned!
but i will try and clean it up a bit. have to hit the hay though. seriously been up a while. also getting that time of a good old manic spell coming on! spring i think.

A Fortiori

I used to write a lot of “stream of consciousness” stuff when I was younger. Whether you like it or not, people form opinions about you based on how you write. Many will conclude that if you cannot write well, then you cannot reason well. They will not look past spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes in an effort to find the brilliance in your writing.
Rather than dismissing these things, I strongly encourage you to practice your writing skills. I published a handful of professional articles and was on the editorial board for a nationwide professional journal very early in my career. These things gave me a leg up on 99% of my competition. Several years into my career, I was lucky enough to work with a guy who was world class writer and who was willing to edit my work. I thought I was pretty good; he showed me I was mediocre. And he was quite ruthless about it. Here is what I learned:
Continue to write your stream of consciousness stuff. If you try to radically change how to initially structure your thinking you will lose the flow of your logic. But then recognize you are far from finished. You need to then go though several rounds of refinement.
Look for places where you make the same point multiple times. Look for places where you expand on a predicate well beyond what your argument requires. Eliminate components of your writing that are not essential to support your conclusion. Look for places where you inject your opinion in a way that the logical flow does not require. Avoid discussing secondary conclusions that flow from the predicates in your argument; they detract from your main point. Then examine each and every sentence and try to make the same point with half the words. Ruthlessly eliminate surplus phrases. Spend the time to refine your writing and make it concise.
You don’t need to do this for internet posts, but for professional writing: Put a thesis statement in the first or second sentence that summarizes your entire point. (The boss will not read the entire document hunting for the main point. Spoon feed it to him.) Break up the logical chunks of your argument with paragraph headers so that each major component of the argument is set forth separately. (This allows those well versed in the subject matter of your writing to jump to the key areas of your argument.) Reiterate your thesis in the final paragraph. This makes your thought much more accessible to the reader.
Writing well is a skill well worth cultivating.

Gail Combs

EXCELLENT,
I would add two points from my Tech writing class.
Point 1:
For business writting, put the problem to be solved in the first sentence. Put the solution in the follow up sentences. This should be your first paragraph. In Scientific papers it is called the Abstract and can be a few paragraphs.
The body of the text gets into the nitty gritty of what was done and how you reached your conclusion.
Point 2:
When you edit leave the paper for at least a day so you can come back to it with fresh eyes. Once you are close to the final draft, get someone who is typical of your audience to read it. This point is from my Hubby the Technical writer. He would hand his computer manuals to secretaries and ask them to read the manual to make sure it was understandable by the intended audience.

amwick

andrew, do you have a wordpress account?. Even a free account gives you the ability to post your own blog. If you did that you could just give us a link… It isn’t that complicated…

churchmouse

Thank you, amwick. Much appreciated.

Linda

T3, thank you so much for your very welcome post. Yes, Christians are being martyred around the world at an ever increasing rate the past few years, and yet we hear very little about it. The Open Door site is definitely a good place to go to get news on that front. They have a lot of information on what is happening in each country and people and groups who need prayer. As they do so much to help persecuted Christians, they are a good group to donate to.
On a different note, I’ve been wondering what is going on with Judge Jeanine. Here is something she wrote on her Facebook page:
“I’m overwhelmed by the support you’ve shown me! I tear up every time I try to read through your tens of thousands of lovely messages. For legal reasons, I can’t comment on what’s happening here, but I also can’t help but be suspicious about losing my megaphone just when the Mueller report is released. I pray to God I soon have a platform to discuss that report with the American people!”
Hmmm. Maybe we should be suspicious, too.

wheatietoo

She wasn’t on Fox this evening.
When we saw her show absent from the Sat night schedule, mr. wheatie said “Fk them!”…and we didn’t watch any of their lineup.
Hmm…Judge Jeanine said “For legal reasons” she can’t comment on what’s happening?
Sounds like she may be suing Fox.
I hope so!

Sylvia Avery

You know, that was my first thought too. She is suing them! But I don’t know if they fired her and she had some kind of NDA clause in her contract? I don’t know how that works.
I do know that I am seriously PO’d about this. I only watched her monologue, usually. I hate the standard formula of one person you want to listen to, the host, and then a third wheel who makes my blood pressure rise.
But that’s beside the point. I take this one personally because she’s PDJT’s friend. And because she had every right to say what she said. And I agreed with her. I nearly always agreed with her. And I happen to like her. So altogether I am seriously seriously PO’d.
I hope she is suing the asses off of those dumb Murdoch boys.

wheatietoo

And what she said wasn’t even all that critical of Jihad Girl.
It was well said and based on the things that Jihad Girl has been saying.
It was the Truth!

Sylvia Avery

I know. I was frankly shocked to hear she had been suspended for two weeks over it. But when the reports started about Bret Baier and Shep Smith backstabbing her to bring her down THEN it began to make sense.
And you know I love Tucker and Sean and Laura (most of the time) but they have all said about a zillion times over the last week “we love FOX they never tell us what to say or what we can’t say and support us completely” I keep thinking, really? What about your pal Judge Jeannine?
I am angry about this. I think it particularly inflames me because of the Muslim thing.

NebraskaFilly

Yeah, I was screaming at Tucker last night! What about Judge Jeanine, Tucker??!!??

NebraskaFilly

I mean Friday night….

Sylvia Avery

I’m laughing because I was doing the same thing NF.

NebraskaFilly

I posted on his FB page as well.

Sylvia Avery

NF, you are a warrior!

rayzorbak

I wish she would sue Fox….. for the channel, Not money.
Put FAUX back in the hands of a REAL Conservative.
Many would rejoice….. many splodey heads.
We need a MAJOR Conservative outlet for the masses.
The Libtards have plenty.

RAC

I’m not a twitterer so don’t know, but has she said anything on there ?

wheatietoo

Nope…she hasn’t tweeted about it.
And the tweet where she had posted her ‘Opening Monologue’ about Jihad Girl Omar, has been deleted.

Sylvia Avery

Rumors abound that she isn’t going back to FOX. There have also been stories that Bret Baier and Shep Smith were gunning for her and got her “suspended.” This really ticks me off.
I posted somewhere on here a report that PDJT walked right by John Roberts, FOX News press pool guy and shook his head NO that he wouldn’t take a question and went to the OANN reporter instead.
I wish I got OANN.

wheatietoo

It was the young muslim woman producer, on Bret Baier’s show, who pitched a fit about Judge Jeanine.
I read in some tweets that she supposedly threatened to sue Fox for a ‘hostile work environment’ if they didn’t chastise Judge Jeanine.

Sylvia Avery

Oh THAT figures.
Now it is MY eyelid that is twitching. Grr…

NebraskaFilly

CAIR also brought pressure to bear on Fox.

amwick

Maybe you already saw this, but..comment image

NebraskaFilly

No – I hadn’t seen it – thank you – copying to FB.

rayzorbak

Something MUST be done about CAIR….
They do NOT CARE about America or Americans.
Aren’t they an unindicted co-conspirator for something?
Now is the time!
Take America back for IT’s People.

NebraskaFilly

CAIR is a subset of the Muslim Brotherhood, as are many other Islamic groups such as ISNA, MSA, etc. Ban the Muslim Brotherhood and ALL of it’s affiliates!
https://clarionproject.org/five-reasons-the-muslim-brotherhood-is-a-terror-group/

NebraskaFilly

CAIR exposed in the Holy Land Foundation trial – here is the MB document from the ’90’s that was introduced as evidence in that trial:
https://clarionproject.org/muslim_brotherhood_explanatory_memorandum/

daughnworks247

CAIR needs a thorough examination. Brotherhood as well. Active on campuses.
What REALLY needs to be stopped is their effort in prisons.

NebraskaFilly

It ALL must be stopped!

NebraskaFilly

PDJT was ready to designate the MB as a terrorist group until countries in the ME, such as Jordan, asked him not to do so. They are embedded within their parliament.

JasonD

It will be interesting how the media landscape shakes out. One thing is certain – consequences are baked into the cake …

andrew1979

so tonight i am reading about this (all articles have a title that comes from about 4 canned variations on a theme.
so fox strongly condemed, rebuked, and apologized to madame congresswoman… who tweeted back a thank you to fox:
“Thank you, @FoxNews,” Omar tweeted. “No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.”
you know what i am seeing here: here whole deal with the statements she made and the supposed call to do something to her. instead they all defended it changed it turned it around and added even more now protected groups BY the house. she was not singled out but hailed as an inspiration to get this momentous anti hate statement on record.
this week…she is thanking fox news for defending someone just trying show commitment to the constitution. and they bought it. not to mention is was a setup of course. she’s been “known” a bit for a while here and there “resisting” or whatever.
setup with a fox employee and a member of congress and who knows how many middle man groups used to build this all up to what it became?

rayzorbak

Contrast Jihadi Omar’s treatment with Congressman Steve King’s treatment.
Hmmmmmm

Cuppa Covfefe

What REALLY bugs me here is, WHY DOES A FRESHMAN CONGRESS-CRITTER have so much power?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a MAJOR case of the tail wagging the dog.
It seems that respect, and knowing one’s place in the order of things has disappeared.
The same thing goes for “Greta the Greenhearted”, that snooty 12-year-old girl from Sweden, who is treated like a princess/goddess sent to Earth to save us from CAGW (Catastrophic Anthropogenic Globull Warming). And bringing along with her what could be best called “Fridays Free for Fake Causes”…
She needs to get back to her classroom on Fridays and learn her maths, history, and science, not to mention logic and a dose of humble pie for lunch…
Same thing goes for the freshmen congress-critters…

coosmama

Not sure if this was posted yesterday (there were alot of comments), but Mark Taylor has an interview posted, and he confirms we are on the right path.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I thought I saw this, too. It seems like a way to sap the impact of tweets – to make people less credible. Statistical, but that’s the way the commies are – they NICKLE and DIME US – same as ELECTIONS.

churchmouse

Bards of War replies:
Notable. I have been tracking this for some time. @StormIsUponUs another confirmation on this. Pay attention to your tweets. This is textbook [clown] information warfare methods, changing meanings to create wrong or misinformation that you assume is truth.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes – this is VERY INTERESTING, because if you read it WITH Skeptical Cat / Suspicious Cat as your attorney and “senior adviser”, then one can see that the old Obama FIB would have TWO MOTIVATIONS here, as is typical of communists, and it is the SECOND, hidden motivation where people’s minds play tricks on them, that is the real motivation.
OBVIOUS MOTIVATION: FBI needs to POSE as journalists to get bad guys.
HIDDEN MOTIVATION: FBI can influence journalists, deploy fake news, do what they did to TRUMP
Our minds tell us “they won’t do the second thing – excuse them – it’s obviously about the main thing which makes sense and is what we are talking about”. But REALITY now tells us that the FBI used journalists to get a FISA on Trump – they INFLUENCED JOURNALISTS. Note that they did this in WATERGATE, TOO. They took down NIXON using their DNC / FBI / CIA / MSM SCANDAL GENERATION MACHINE.
Government CANNOT be allowed to infiltrate journalism. I think it would be great if Trump’s LOBBYING stuff was extended to journalism. THEN we would not have DAVID AXELROD and RAT RYAN going into media to influence it and control it from the inside.
Not sure about the latter, but I think it’s worth discussing. Should government officials be prohibited from getting inside journalism? Or is THAT ACT ITSELF an undue influence on the press?

rayzorbak

NOT an undue influence…….
The REASON for a Free Press…
Get the TRUTH to the people.
NOT to arrange narratives FOR the people.
But even IF we banned poly Ticks from being in the “Media”
They would just find a way AROUND it.
Like they do with EVERYTHING else. 🙁

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

“POTUS Trump Gives Fox News The Cold Shoulder – Calls On OANN Instead…
Posted on March 22, 2019 by DCWhispers
Fox News is currently in the Trump doghouse due to its temporary ban against the popular Judge Jeanine and the even more recent hiring of 2016 election fraud conspirator (she actually gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton ahead of time) and former DNC Chair, Donna Brazile.
While walking past Fox News reporter John Roberts, who appeared very eager to field a question, President Trump shook his head and said, “NO” before then going to OANN reporter Emerald Robinson and taking a question from her.
President Trump is clearly putting Fox News on notice.
Message received. ”

andrew1979

wow. if he could do that and also with some of the “little known” places like right side broadcasting once in a while, just a bit more than a retweet or whatever… tell those other people to screw. i mean, he has been so accessibly and willing to stand and take it and go on for hours. never before seen in media. he is right he will kill their ratings when he is gone.

JasonD

PDJT is the ONLY GAME IN TOWN as far as news these days. He is fully aware how powerful he is. I have no doubt that plans are in the works …

amwick

I mentioned OT that I taped the Ingraham Angle to see if anything came up wr to this travesty… The beginning of the show is a conversation between Laura and Sean. It seemed they were making very cryptic remarks in support of her. Clearly they were threatened and cannot mention anything. I am pissed off with them all. Sadly, I cannot get OANN at all,,,

Sylvia Avery

I can’t get OANN either. I wish I did.

Sylvia Avery

I don’t know if this video has been shared here or not. It is popping up everywhere on the interwebs. I watched it tonight and I highly recommend it. It is incredibly well done, well documented, interesting, infuriating, sickening.
It is called Seattle is Dying. It covers what happens when a “progressive” city leadership runs a town right into the ground and the horrible cost, what the consequences are, and how it happened. It also holds out a glimmer of a solution at the end of some remedies to the drug addiction blight that seem to hold real promise in Providence, Rhode Island.
The video is an hour long, but it is not boring. I was riveted, anyway.

Harry Lime

I watched that entire video…
…so, so, sad…
may liberalism die a thousand deaths…

Sylvia Avery

It is infuriating, horrifying to watch it unfold. It hurts everyone, helps no one, and costs a fortune. But the fools in charge get to feel good about themselves because they are doltish progressives virtue signalling like mad.

daughnworks247

The glorification of victims status/taking a wrecking ball to our cities/indoctrination of youth/encouraging drug use and homelessness – it’s all a sham.
If the Dems were truly compassionate, they would care about these problems. They don’t. People suffer. It’s all about power and control.

Sylvia Avery

Somehow, I missed reading this. It a Victor Davis Hanson essay from February called Autopsy of a Dead Coup. I enjoyed reading it. A great summary of events, and still relevant despite being a month old.
“In sum, the Left and the administrative state, in concert with the media, after failing to stop the Trump campaign, regrouped. They ginned up a media-induced public hysteria, with the residue of the Hillary Clinton campaign’s illegal opposition research, and manipulated it to put in place a special counsel, stocked with partisans.
Then, not thugs in sunglasses and epaulettes, not oligarchs in private jets, not shaggy would-be Marxists, but sanctimonious arrogant bureaucrats in suits and ties used their government agencies to seek to overturn the 2016 election, abort a presidency, and subvert the U.S. Constitution. And they did all that and more on the premise that they were our moral superiors and had uniquely divine rights to destroy a presidency that they loathed.
Shame on all these failed conspirators and their abettors, and may these immoral people finally earn a long deserved legal and moral reckoning.”

A Fortiori

Sylvia — I recommend that you put VDH on your reading list. He is among a handful of writers I follow regularly; I read everything he writes.
VDH lives on a farm that has been in his family for four generations, and teaches military history at the college level. His perspective is unique, and very valuable. The vast majority of people covering our news today have lived their entire lives insulated from the real world and from people who work with their hands, understand nothing of history and have no connection to “more seasoned” people who can give them a sense of perspective. The contrast shines through in their work.

Sylvia Avery

I read everything of VDH’s I see, but I miss things sometimes and this was one.
He does have a unique perspective as you say and it is often helpful to me to see what his thinking is on current events. His experience living in the Central Valley on his family farm, his Classics education, and his intellect all combine to provide a really interesting outlook.
I got yelled at by some posters OT a couple times for posting VDH articles. They insisted he was a Never Trumper I think. Kind of mystified me. If he didn’t care for Trump but came to understand and appreciate him, isn’t that what we want? To me, Never Trump means…Never Trump. Not well I didn’t pick him at first but I’ve seen the light and now I support him. Oh well, whatever.
At any rate, VDH is a good writer and a good thinker and it results in good reading material! And he has a new book out, The Case For Trump!

ozzytrumpster

Ok. It’s off topic but here’s the offending joke. Please use your imagination.
When Chelsea Clinton was a little girl she asked her dad, Bill, at breakfast what the difference between p****y and c**t were. He shushed her, took her by her hand to the master bedroom where Hillary was sleeping in the nude. He carefully pulled down the covers , pointed and whispered that’s a p***y. Can I touch it ?asked Chelsea. No , hissed her dad. If you do you’ll wake the c**t up.

Sylvia Avery

Humorous, but oh so true, article about the Dims pushing us all us normies to wish we could vote for Trump twice. A fun read.
” Every Time Democrats Talk, I Want To Vote For Trump Twice
I am a highly motivated Trump voter because the Democrats have motivated me up to my eyeballs. I have never been more motivated in my life, because the Democrats are terrifying me. ..”
Read the rest here:

Sylvia Avery

Another excerpt from the link above:
“…And let me tell ya, every time one of these newly minted Democratic “stars” opens their mouth, the same thought goes through my mind: Thank God for Trump. Trump is my last line of defense. Trump is the only thing that stands between me and these hallucinogenic socialist nut jobs. Trump is what’s keeping chaos and left-wing insanity at bay….”
***********
Oh so true.

wheatietoo

Ben Domenech is the founder and publisher of The Federalist.
Domenech is also a bigtime nevertrumper…and on Nov 23, 2017, he married Megan McNoName.
So it has to be sort of galling for Domenech and his bride, to have articles that are supportive of Pres Trump appear on his Federalist site.comment image
.
Although, that piece was not exactly full of praise for our President.
It was humorous, yes…but it was basically saying that the Dems were sooo bad, they made Trump look good.

Sylvia Avery

Yes, I keep forgetting Domenench runs The Federalist. But that is also where Mollie Hemmingway works and she gives full throated support to PDJT so the authors must not be muzzled, or at least completely.
And I see your point about the author’s assessment that PDJT only looks good in comparison to the Dims.
It could be that I was more sympathetic to his POV because he started out not wanting Trump for President, and I came from that place, too, so I get it.
I interpreted him to mean that he had been won over by PDJT’s accomplishments but that the Dim’s had sealed the deal by providing a neverending horror show of knaves, fools, and Commies. But that was just my take.

wheatietoo

No other Republican could have won in 2016, Syl.
And can you imagine *any* of the R-candidates doing what PDJT has done, in dealing with other world leaders?
Ted Cruz?
Marco Rubio?
JEB?
These lightweights would be selling us out and embarrassing us on a daily basis.
The globalist nevertrumper crowd will never give Pres Trump his due, though.
And they still have hopes of bringing him down.
They don’t believe in ‘America First’ and want things to go back to the way they were.
But yeah, Mollie Hemmingway is one nevertrumper who seems to have seen the light and is genuinely supportive of Pres Trump.

Sylvia Avery

I agree. Not one of the wonderful “big bench” of Republican candidates could have won. No way. PDJT just dwarfed them all.
And none of them could have done what he has done, would have dared to try to do what he has done, could have faced down the opposition like he has done.
He was the one, the only one, who could have come forth to successfully lead our country at this time. If that isn’t clear to everyone by now, they are either oblivious and not paying the slightest attention to anything around them, they are hardened Leftists, or they are on the payroll of the Commies or the cartels or someone similar.
There’s just no other way I can make sense of anyone’s refusal to accept him after all this time and all he has done to earn our gratitude and admiration.

Tonawanda

“No other Republican could have won in 2016, Syl.”
The only way for a Republican to have won was to engage in the “politics of personal destruction” every single day (the reasons for which would require a book). We all would love for the political process to be a Socratic dialogue, but anyone who believes that was (or is) possible is a blithering idiot.
But Republicans did believe it, and seem not to have realized that there has never been a dialogue, just Republicans tut-tutting that there should be, and Demokkkrats meanwhile engaging in the politics of personal destruction.
VSG not only was (and is) willing to engage in the politics of personal destruction, he (apparently) was (and is) the only one CAPABLE of doing it. Hillary needed to be “personally destroyed,” not treated with deference as a respected opponent in the “democratic process.” Demokkkrats and other traitors need to be “personally destroyed” every day. It is far from sufficient to achieve success, but it IS necessary.
There are many Trump supporters who do not (and never will) “get” this. Their tut-tutting is very important to them, and God Bless them as long as they vote for Trump.

wheatietoo

Our VSG also gave people something to vote *for*, Tona.
He spoke to the Forgotten men and women of this country…and struck a chord with them.
He was not another politician making the same old hollow promises.
He is one of us.
People signed up to Vote who had never voted before.
Yes, he destroyed Hillary…but he did it in a jovial and sort of respectful way.
She destroyed herself and he just pointed to it.
Calling her “Crooked Hillary” was simply the truth.
And when she called us the “Deplorables” she pretty well finished herself off.
Haaaa.

andrew1979

that’s the picture that showed mccain with the boot on the “other” foot.

And this is why you are on the side of good – your “reason” is fully functional – grounded in truth.
When you believe that the universe is a blind, purposeless place that came into existence from “nothing” – then your “reason” disintegrates when prodded.

Sylvia Avery

This is an interesting assessment of Ron DeSantis’ performance as Governor of Florida so far.
This IS the National Review so you can detect the whiff of Trump Disdain on the part of the author but it is pretty unobtrusive and it is a different, but positive, evaluation of DeSantis even concluding with a passing thought he might be a 2024 possibility.

Don’t be fooled by this. What we are seeing is a tactical retreat, designed to allow the scum who run and operate this seditious organization to keep their powder dry so they can live to fight another day. I’d be willing to bet that many of the miscreants who carried out the crimes committed by this organization will be getting divorced in an attempt to further insulate the resources necessary to carry out their crimes. Watching the SPLC implode is a good thing, but the individuals who carried out its activities must still face justice.

Sylvia Avery

I’m still catching up on news from the last few days. You all probably already knew this, but PDJT nominated or appointed Steve Moore (he served on the 2016 campaign) for the Federal Reserve Board.
I like Steve Moore a lot. He has been a big supporter of the President and besides I just like the guy. He’s pretty direct, smart, clear thinker. So I was delighted to hear PDJT tapped him for this job.
But now that I know Paul Krugman had a melt down over it, it is just that much sweeter.
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/03/stephen_moore_named_to_the_fed_board_and_paul_krugman_goes_into_meltdown.html

ladypenquin

Stephen Moore has always come across as a reasoned, intelligent and thoughtful thinker – therefore it makes sense that he would have early on understood Donald Trump and been a supporter.
Krugman is a phony, and intellectually dishonest, if he even has an intellect.

Sue Mcdonald

Krugman has the intellect of a unicorn fart .

Sylvia Avery

I agree. Krugman is pathetic. Subpar on every level. So it really does figure he would come apart over Steve Moore’s appointment.
I love Krugman’s distress. I revel in it. I am even happier over Steve Moore’s appointment. I expect we will all be better for it.

just saw a very nice atmospheric burn up of some object… good to see one that extensive. it has been a long time. excuse my non scientifical terminology there. not a meteor shower “shooting star”, this was a burn up on entry 🙂 5:13am eastern.

Sylvia Avery

That reminded me. We were supposed to have a chance to view the northern lights tonight in my area. We get occasional glimpses here. I have NEVER managed to see them. I rushed out to look. No joy. I have too much ambient light, I think. I’d have to drive out of town a fair bit. Sigh.

Greg Cox

The only time I’ve seen the Northern Lights was when I was on a late night flight from Chicago to Seattle, and I happened to be sitting on the “right” side of the plane. Beautiful!

Chimpy

I used to live in western Canada. Watching the Northern Lights was both beautiful, mystic and unsettling all at the same time.

Sylvia Avery

I bet it would be spectacular from a plane. What a view!

amwick

I went out last night and saw a shooting star… It was some time after 10pm…. Do not tell me it was a burn up of an earthly object, because I made a wish…Wishes happen, but only on real shooting stars…

daughnworks247

When I was a kid, mom worked at Dispensa’s Toy Castle, for the 6-8 weeks prior to Christmas, for extra holiday money. She came home with great treasures. Intricate holiday ornament kits were “the best babysitters”, she claimed. I loved them.
Yet, it was the “Learn About” books which we loved most. Learn about Archaeology, Learn about Astronomy, Learn about Biology, Learn about Geology……. it went on and on.
As amateur archeologists, we dug up EVERYTHING, until Mrs. Djadick took us to a real Indian dig.
As biologists, Dad came home with an old university microscope. We shared it and examined everything from backyard ants to leaves and blood.
As budding geologists, I turned my Barbie Doll carrier into a formal rock collection and display. When the neighborhood kids took family vacations, we all brought home….. rocks for souvenirs. Mr. Loomis was an older man, a chemist for Dow, and lived across the street. He had a rock tumbler and would shine up our treasures. He also helped us blow things up when we “Learned about Chemistry”.
As the anatomy wave hit us, we had Karen’s dad who was a physician. We pestered him until he let us sit in on an autopsy. Not one of us got sick- cuz we imagined we were all junior physicians.
As meteorologists, we made the water barometer and kept it at Curtis’ house, he reported to us every school morning, but I had the rain gauge. We spent a lot of time, under the clothesline, looking up at the clouds and charting data.
But the year we got the “Learn about Astronomy” book was probably the best. Grandma bought me a telescope for Easter, and we were off and running. As spring melded into summer, we spent our nights in the backyard, watching meteor showers, and identifying planets and constellations. It was the late 60’s and NASA and Star Trek were all the rage. We all KNEW we were all going to be living in space….. someday, so we thought we should learn about it. Learning about Astronomy made our world limitless.

“The American Thinker

The rare wisdom of our president is a gift
By Don Sucher
Politicians are used to seeing cowardice and being cowards. So used to it are they that they cannot even imagine there being another way.
Our president has proven to be quite different. He is fearless. He is bold. He acts. He accomplishes. (What he would be accomplishing if those in his party had the courage to support him is hard to conceive.) If one takes a moment to look at his brilliance, it is a truly rare and beautiful thing.
First off, the attacks were made to wear him down and wear him out. To make him sue (and compromise) for peace. He did not.
Two, they thought they could make him overreact, go beyond his jurisdiction. He did not do that, either.
Three, when attacks on him directly failed, they went after his family. The media in the end were saying his children were going to be indicted. He did not wince. (Neither did they.)
And what is even more an indicator of genius is that often the very thing that drove his enemies mad — and made it obvious to onlookers that they were mad (and thus not be believed) was seen by his supporters in a positive light. His good humor, for instance.
This is a rare form of leadership — temperance crossed with almost outlandish boldness. (How often can those two words describe the same man at the very same time?) Thank God, it is rarely needed.
That the “wise” cannot see this is to be expected. They worship what they themselves are: wordy, hapless, false, and ineffective.
Our president is none of these things. He is truly something else. Something rare. Something wonderful.
To think this nation received such a leader at this critical time by mere chance is to this writer unimaginable.”

Extremely well stated. For those who do not believe in divine providence, I ask how do you explain the appearance of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Donald Trump at precisely the juncture in history that they arrived?

I follow Scott Adams for interesting insights. He gets a lot wrong, but he gets some things right. Plus POTUS has endorsed him, which counts a fair bit in my book.
Adams is way behind the curve on climate change, but he is finally looking at the sceptical case and leaning that way.
He says Q is definitely a hoax because neither Fox, nor CNN give it any legitimacy …. So these are his weaker areas.
And of course he favours Musk’s “simulation” model of our “reality” over God – his biggest logical flaw as far as I can see.
But he dropped this little tidbit which I like. The Middle East Peace Plan that Kushner is negotiating works like this.
Come to the negotiating table for a REAL peace plan, or else ….
The “or else” is consequences linked to the passage of time. Every milestone missed on the calendar incurs a penalty.
Embassy Move – Boom
Partially de-fund the Palestinian “government” (this will have several iterations) -Bam
Grant the Golan Heights to Israel – Ka Boom
Next?
Don’t know if this is actually the strategy – but it looks good to me.

amwick

I feel the same way about Scott Adams.. I watch his twitter and we have interacted a bit, but I tend to keep a low profile. Anyway, I see him as a kind of philosopher.. in an odd way.. The thing is he made a fortune, and it is my belief that he is genuinely trying to do something that will help many many people. Still,,I am not too clear what that is,, but that puts him in the plus side of my personal book. hmmmmmm

NebraskaFilly

Not to quibble but…..PDJT didn’t “grant” the Golan Heights to Israel – he just officially recognized the facts of the matter.

wheatietoo

Still no tweets from Pres Trump, since the announcement about the Muller Report…and the media is hunkered down, wondering ‘why’.
Haaa. 😆
This was his last tweet:

Almost like he knew what was in it😜

I love the total media vacuum on the Caribbean nation meeting. Willful blindness on their part while Trump is moving chess pieces on the board!
Obviously he’s bringing alignment to his foreign policy strategy:
– Push Cuba and further isolate them.
– End agreements, assistance, and relationships with the Maduro regime.
– Set the stage for Nicaragua
– Court Haiti and bring them back into the fold of respectability and away from toxic foreign (and U.S.!) manipulation.
– Block Russian and China interests.
– Recognize the strategic relevance of the Caribbean nations to U.S. interests.
– Clear the path and plant the seeds toward new and enhanced trade relationships in what has been an undervalued and underappreciated region of the world.
– Make the Caribbean Great Again!

The NSA would have those Strzok and Page text messages that the Mueller team wiped off their phones.
Q has said…”We have it all.”
So I’m hoping that’s true!

Pat Frederick

me too!!
don’t know the legal ins and out of it, but wondering if Mueller could actually be charged with obstruction if there isn’t an investigation into anything yet. (But if there was an investigation, it’s probably being done on the down lo and they wouldn’t be telling me about it anyway…lol)

this should be played over and over again on OANN–as a promotion for them!

So what I can glean from that is the following –
The media are suffering from PTDS = Pres Trump Derangement Syndrome
This is due to shell shock from all the bomb shells
And they are begging us to start already with the “beginning of the end!!!”
I have good news for them – their end is beginning to come into view since IT has finally begun!!!

Steyn today:
“Trump Tweeted his way out of the Deep State’s grip. I doubt any other Republican president would have proved so wily: It’s not difficult to imagine President Jeb deciding to do the right thing and resign for the good of the country – without ever being able to figure what it was he’d done wrong.”
https://www.steynonline.com/9255/deep-state-dumpster-fire

michaelh

Great point! That’s a funny picture to contemplate!
But I don’t think Jeb would’ve been targeted or put in a position to resign. The Uniparty would have been quite satisfied to have him as their puppet.
I can’t imagine Jeb doing anything more as President than crisis management. He’d be captain of the ship in name only – every great wave of the ocean he’d be running around on deck trying to keep the ship afloat and keep it from capsizing with no idea(!) where he wanted to sail the ship.
No doubt he would’ve talked a tough talk (yeah Jeb, you’re a real tough guy) about Obamacare but in the end repeal and replace would be dead and he’d opt instead to do some medicare reforms and do another major expansion of prescription drugs benefits. Big Pharma would love him – the government never cares to check the prices they charge so they could make a killing off him. That would be the extent of his domestic agenda.
Internationally of course he would be a disaster. The war on ISIS would be escalated and we’d be in a war of words with Russia over Syria, with Russia basically thumbing their nose at us and pushing us around. After two years of fighting and billions of dollars we would have successfully liberated the southern have of Mosul. China’s blatant moves on Taiwan we’d be completely ignoring while the Taiwan opposition party was singing great “we are the world” songs of mainland unification. Because we’d be too busy trying to talk down N. Korea rockets flying brazenly over Seoul and escalating nuclear testing. Meanwhile Canada would be laughing all the way to bank over TPP.

As I freely go to church to worship, fellowship and learn more about our wondrous Lord this morning I am reminded that in many parts of the world that is not possible. So would it be if we cower down and refuse to call out evil in our own nation. I pray that those quiet Christians who despite great risk to themselves and their families, are taking the fight to evil through their words and deeds on an inter-personal relationship level be strengthened and filled with joy to know that what they do matters to The Audience of One as well as all believers everywhere.
We love you, Lord. We give thanks and praise for who you are and all that you do. We thank you for our salvation and the price you were willing to pay on that cross to redeem us. We are yours and you are ours.

GA/FL

AMEN!!!

I just wanted to comment on this meme posted by Q:comment image
I have been saying for YEARS that the history of the Demokkkrat party is highly relevant to ongoing political issues/narratives. I have advocated on various sites for YEARS that the history of the Deomokkkrat party ought to be a DAILY subject of discussion, ridicule, propaganda, invective and taunting, The object needs to be making people ashamed to even be associated with Demokkkrats.
And the factual basis is overwhelming, not even debatable. As a matter of fact, those few attempts to do so such as D’Souza’s movie have only scratched the surface. Just as one random example: a LONG documentary could be made demonstrating how essential the hatred of black Americans was to the national political power of the Demokkkrats throughout their decades long hegemony in the 20th century.
Another LONG documentary could review the extensive philosophical justification for slavery by the Demokkkrats, and compare it to the “philosophical” justification for the New Deal, socialism and general “we are doing this for your own good” mind set of Demokkkrats at all times. Reading the Demokkkrats justification of slavery is like listening to modern day Demokkkrats, mutatis mutandis.
As a matter of fact, a documentary could be done on the single subject of the century long Demokkkrat use of the word “n188er” for political purposes, a word used millions and millions of times year after year by Demokkkrats, cruelly poisoning America for their own selfish ends, as they continue to do today using words such as “racist.”

NebraskaFilly

Include in that documentary the fact that Abraham Lincoln could not have cared less about the slaves. In fact, he wanted them all sent to a new country set up just for them: Liberia!

NebraskaFilly

Not sure if Liberia existed back then but……hopefully, y’all get my point…..the Northern War of Aggression had NOTHING to do with slavery!

When my son was 14, I sent him to a hunter safety course so that he could obtain a non-resident hunting permit to hunt deer in WI. The class was in Manassas, VA, and one of the instructors was a good ol boy from the area. During the lunch my son overheard him make a comment about the “War of Northern Agression.” He subsequently asked me about this, which created for my son a new and rather intense interest in the Civil War that abides to this day.

churchmouse

James Madison founded Liberia, so, yes, it did exist back then.
Monrovia, founded in 1824, was named after James Monroe.

“The use of terms like “mainstream media” and growing distrust in “the establishment” are an “assault on freedom of expression”, the head of the BBC has claimed.
BBC director-general Lord Tony Hall said the effects of globalisation have fuelled a “progressive erosion of trust in … all those perceived as expert or elite” he complained, warning that journalism was under attack from “a crisis of faith in our traditional institutions”.
In a speech to the House of Lords this week, the 68-year-old life peer said he remembered “an age when … journalists could command the attention and respect of a whole country with the quality of their craft.”
Now, reporters for media outlets like the BBC face “attempts to target, troll [and] intimidate them” in addition to “constant anonymous threats online, simply for reporting on opinions that others might not want to hear”, he alleged.
Lamenting that “the phrase ‘mainstream media’ is now a term of abuse”, he professed to be “really worried” about public scepticism towards what he described as “traditional journalism”, insisting that these developments amounted to “more than an attack on journalists. [They amount] to a campaign to denigrate their craft”.

sadly these people brought this on themselves…perhaps the media can begin retraining programs for their “journalists” to work on farms–they seem to have proclivities for slinging manure and wading in muck…

This illustrates how leftists are allowed to call dissent and difference of opinion from their agenda ‘hate’ ‘bigotry’ ‘phobia’ etc.

I would love to see a sit-in rally at the airport in support of Chick-fil-A…
have their been reports or complaints filed by members of the alphabet community that have been refused service?

michaelh

Has anyone here ever tried to buy lunch at a Chick-fil-A during the lunch hour? The drive through line is practically down the block! If they’re being boycotted it’s clearly not working!
Besides, when a cray-cray leftist vegan threatens to boycott chicken sandwiches, I can only bust up laughing 🙂 These people deserve their ridicule, served up with a side of Chick-fil-A sauce.

Tonawanda

As long as I am riding my hobby horse (inspired by the Q post), IMO non-leftists SHOULD fully and sympathetically engage in the reparations debate. Despite the valid talking points against reparations, there IS an historical injustice which ought to be addressed in a concrete fashion (I fully understand Demokkkrats have no intention of “discussing” reparations in a sincere way, but the issue is still a valid one.)
And the FIRST step of the discussion ought to be these issues:
1) Is there a legally identifiable entity existing today who could fairly be charged with owing a debt to those who were/are affected by wrongdoing?
2) If that entity exists, did that entity engage in behavior which created or fomented circumstances detrimental to affected parties?
3) Did that entity benefit from the detrimental circumstances, and to what extent?
4) If steps 1 – 3 obtain, what is the remedy?
The single, exclusive, indisputable answer to questions 1 – 3 is, yes: the Demokkkrat Party exists, it was and is the SOLE entity with indisputable liability, and it has benefited extensively down to the present day.
The remedy at the very least has to be an apology. There should be a national referendum where the acknowledgement of wrong doing, the many specific facts, should be included under part one, and under part two should be the expression of apology by the Demokkkrats.
The national referendum should be voted on by ALL Americans, because we have all been harmed to this day by the culpable behavior. The referendum should be: do we accept your apology?
A separate referendum should be on setting up a commission to determine how much the Demokkkrats owe financially, and should depend on part whether their apology is accepted by the American people.
When all of this is accomplished, the discussion on reparations should then continue, now that the question has been resolved with respect to the entity with unquestionable liability/culpability.
Then we can discuss the circumstances which are less clear.

NebraskaFilly

In that case, where are the reparations for the Irish and the Chinese? What about reparations for those “indians” who were here BEFORE the “native americans?” No, reparations are just stupid – period!

Pat Frederick

isn’t it funny that they want all of us to share the blame? That seems to be what they do…instead of admitting to a problem (think Omar), they cast a wide net and try to ensnare ALL OF US into it and thus lessen their own responsibility. “we are all guilty and it must be stopped” bullshit…it’s shameful!

Tonawanda

Just my pov, but to me reparations is a total winner for the non-left.
I am amazed how the absolute GUILT of the Demokkkrat party is completely overlooked by our side, and how DEFENSIVE our side is about the issue.
This is where the Demokkkrats are no doubt smarter than us. They have accurately calculated how their baloney will provoke opposition, when it should be generating jiu jitsu.
We are so offended by the idea of reparations, we fail to see how reparations is 100% favorable to us.

michaelh

Awesome 🙂
There is a major problem: You are using LOGIC in a situation where the claims are NOT LOGICAL.
Any Patriot should respond to the call for reparations with the same words: OH HELL NO!!!
(And yes, there would be many Patriots on our side whose fore-fathers were liberated slaves! They wanted their FREEDOM – not entitlements of wealth!)
We are resolved to never pay tribute or appeasement to the traitorous leftists in our midst who falsely claim the mantle of injustice against people that they DO NOT REPRESENT for no other purpose than to line their own pockets and seize power at the earliest opportunity!
But that’s not a good enough position.
We won’t give this issue any credibility whatsoever until they drop the fiction of “reparations.” This isn’t for “reparations”. Let’s boldly speak the truth: This is about Appeasements and Payoffs of Leftist Radicals. Period. ALL STOP.
Now remember, “Impossible is just the starting point.”
Now we push the issue about REPARATIONS from the radical leftists for the GENERATIONS of damage caused by leftist policies, and reimbursements to the American Taxpayers for their theft of the Treasury!
And while we’re at it, let’s talk about how much treasure has been spend, particularly on the Civil War, and through all the civil programs in the 20th century in the name of “helping” people.
Let’s talk about THAT money. It’s time for them to pick up the check and pay up!
How about the radical leftists pay reparations to the American people for all the wasted tax dollars and all the economic damage they have done in the last few generations?
NOW when THE LEFT steps up to the plate and pays down what THEY OWE to America, THEN we may have a conversation about “reparations”!
JMO 😉

Something occurred to me after watching that Christchurch video at the top of the page. What I’m about to say isn’t coming from a xenophobic space in my heart.
From the dawn of time there were varied cultures. Unless it was a battle to conquer going on they lived and worshipped each according to their own norms and values. Anyone old enough to remember getting National Geographic mags and pouring over the pictures/articles of other peoples. Their dress, their food, their beliefs was fascinating. Here in the US, pols pander to and yet also demean different regions as if everyone in America should want to talk the same, act the same, eat the same.
Now the shadow brokers are forcing culture clashes demanding that because we’re all human beings that we should all homogenize into one race that assumes the chosen dominant ones culture. It’s not natural to want to cede your history , tradition, religion. It’s not natural or healthy to hate your ethnic or racial makeup but that’s being shouted from every platform.
I don’t think we were meant to be one global mass of humanity, all the same. In a free will society if you choose to move and join another ‘tribe’ and adopt their customs and language as your own..more power to ya but what’s happening now is a hostile invasion but their best weapons are psychological..shame (on us if we don’t open arms like “good” people) and fear ( will we be racists for not welcoming and supporting )

Be respectful, be considerate, be understanding, be honest, be truthful—treat others as you would want them to treat you.
However, there are exceptions, and their fruits expose them. Exceptions in the sense that verifiable truth (actions) exposes their intentions. Examples would be the Canaanites in the Old Testament (who worshipped Moloch and sacrificed children to Lucifer), and modern day Muslims who interpret the Qu’ran in the literal sense (fundamentalists), who seek to dominate all others and subjugate mankind under Islam (with never an intent to assimilate into the host country’s culture or society)! Their actions (fruit) exposes their intentions! JMHO.
