    This morning I am asking for prayer for a family member. My great niece, Shannon, gave birth to a baby boy named Andrew in March. In mid-May, he suddenly contracted some kind of muscle weakening condition that was a puzzle to the doctors. Andrew was life-flighted to UC in Davis, CA. At first they assumed it was caused by a minor car accident, then they diagnosed it as infant botulism.

    Because of continuing problems, the investigation into his condition continued, and he has been diagnosed with a serious genetic condition called SMA Type 1, or spinal muscular atrophy. Up until last December, there was no hope for these infants, most dying before their second birthdays.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spinal_muscular_atrophy

    In December 2016, nusinersen became the first approved drug to treat SMA.

    Here is Shannon’s report on his situation:

    We finally found out what is going on with our precious baby boy. Unfortunately the test results came back positive for sma type 1. Fortunately though there is a treatment. The treatment has only been available since December. Before that infants with sma usually passed away before their first or second birthdays. I am so happy that this miracle treatment is available now. It halts the progression of sma and starts to reverse the effects. Allowing the body to rebuild the muscle its lost. It takes time for these babies to catch up and its an injection in the spine that has to be done a few times every year. However, there is an even more exciting treatment in the trial phase right now. Its a gene replacement therapy. I cant tell you how excited i am and the doctors at shriners are about this. This will be amazing. I am talking with the doctor at shriners about andrew being a part of that trial as soon as it becomes available there. The infants that have already received it have had amazing results. The hope is that these children will grow up living normal healthy lives. And with advancing gene replacement therapy hoping someday soon this disease will be a thing of the past. So even though it was heartbreaking to hear he has this i am so blessed that there is a treatment. Hopefully in about a month we will be home. Please continue to pray for him. I really appreciate your thoughts prayers and heartfelt comments. It really means a lot.

    Here is Andrew:

    I am thinking more and more that Comey is looking for Federal Immunity, blanket immunity, kind of hard for a 6′ 8″ man to go into any witness protection program but maybe his family can escape the Clinton Cabal. I don’t think the leaking of the Lynch matter was a slip, I think it was warning shot.

    Interesting times.

        The article articulated a lot of what I am thinking. There was just so much oddness to Comey’s testimony and every sentence he said was calculated. There is a very large storefront moving in on the swamp and things are going to get very dark before we see what body dwellers the sunlight reveals.

            During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.

            Comey โ€œtook that interaction and the fact she had met with Bill Clinton as enough reason to decide he would not allow the Justice Department to decide the fate of the case and instead would go publicโ€ with his own assessment that the FBI could not prove Mrs. Clinton intended to violate the law when she transmitted classified information through her private email and therefore should not be criminally charged.

            As I’ve been saying for a while we are either going to see bodies or a very uncivil war coming amongst the democrat oligarchs.

            The sources also said that Comeyโ€™s testimony in private conflicted with recent reports in the news media suggesting the FBI had intercepted an email between Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who at the time was the Democratic Party chairwoman, and a third party. Those media reports suggested that the information about the email was more than likely fake and a ruse possibly planted by the Russians. The Washington Postย story suggested the dubious email is what motivated Comey, who still was not sure of the intelligence, to come forward with his findings in the Clinton investigation and shut down the case.

            Here we go again with the intent ๐Ÿ™„ Comey is really not using the word intent properly and he knows it, what he terms “intent” is for lawful purposes of the word actually ignorance of the law. Which is of course never a legal remedy for breaking the law. Intent has been clearly shown, beyond a shadow of a doubt, clandestine server, hammered phones, bleach bit, and on and on. Intent can be seen by a lay person.

            So Comey is and was playing political linguistics when he says no intent.

            Screw you and your twisted manipulative “mens rea” Comey.

            And we are to believe that Comey, The King Feebie, said “Aw, golly geewilkers! The media said the information I have might be Russian propaganda….. never mind” about a crucial piece of evidence that would prove intent involving Wasserman? ๐Ÿ˜œ

            Gimme a break!

            Russia Russia Russia <<< I am beginning to believe not a single word about Russia is true, why did the DNC never turn over the hardware? Because they are hiding something. If it does't make sense it isn't true.

            I'm telling you Comey is fighting for his life, there is no telling what this man has in his arsenal but it ain't empty. Comey goes way back with the Clintons. And you can bet he has way more on the Clintons and the Obamas than he has on "the hapless orangutang, The Donald".

            Clintons may have Comey killed but President Trump can humiliate him before his friends, family, church community and colleagues. Think about James "Beaver Cleaver" Comey and think about which he would rather choose.

            Keep in mind how terrible Comey looked giving testimony on Thursday, the man's soul is weary and troubled.

            Also remember it was candidate Trump who said that the downfall of Hillary Clinton would come through Huma Aberdeen because Huma was married to pervert Anthony Weiner.

            As big as Comey's arsenal is, as big as Clinton's arsenal is, (and as big as Obama's keeper's arsenal is) I am willing to bet that President Trump's arsenal is bigger. Trump is a master at negotiations and persuasion it was not a fluke that he still had Lindsey Grahm's cell phone number written by Grahm's own hand. That was very persuasive.

            Perhaps not as persuasive as trotting out some of Bill Clinton's victims and poor Kathy Shelton to show the lengths that he is willing to go to keep the old kings and queens in check.

              not knowing comey, i gave comey every benefit of the doubt when, on 5 july 2016, comey quite plainly placed the blame on lynch – “no reasonable prosecutor.” did not take much research to determine comey is a weasel. comey responds to “his own internal ethics” as comey himself said. unfortunately for comey, those who wrote the laws did not consult comey and comey’s internal whatevers.

              as for the dems, their civil war should at least be entertaining.

            During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.*

            *Comey โ€œtook that interaction and the fact she had met with Bill Clinton as enough reason to decide he would not allow the Justice Department to decide the fate of the case and instead would go publicโ€ with his own assessment that the FBI could not prove Mrs. Clinton intended to violate the law when she transmitted classified information through her private email and therefore should not be criminally charged.

            Could โ€œnot prove intentโ€ is a linguistic twist of words that Comey is using to play games. Comey is actuality claiming that Clinton was ignorant of the law, which is of course never a legal defense. Comey has known exactly what he is doing for decades. Hillaryโ€™s intent to circumvent the law is proven just in the circumstantial evidence that is in the public forum.

            The sources also said that Comeyโ€™s testimony in private conflicted with recent reports in the news media suggesting the FBI had intercepted an email between Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who at the time was the Democratic Party chairwoman, and a third party.

The Washington Postย story suggested the dubious email is what motivated Comey, who still was not sure of the intelligence, to come forward with his findings in the Clinton investigation and shut down the case.

            So, the public is to believe that the head honcho Feebie was influenced by *media reports* that the email he was in possession of was actually Russian propaganda ๐Ÿ™„. So Comey said โ€œmeh?โ€ Gimme a break!ย 

            Comey is in self preservation mode, on one hand he has the Clintons who will kill him, on the other hand he has President Trump who has only God, Comey and President know what kind of dirt on Comey.

            President Trump is a master negotiator and persuader.

            There is a reason he held up Lindsey Grahmโ€™s cell phone number written by Grahmโ€™s own hand that was a message, candidate Trump sent lots of messages. My belief is that President has an arsenal that rivals Comey, Clinton and Obamaโ€™s keeperโ€™s arsenal. President Trump knows exactly who these people are, he thrived in the New York real estate market while swimming in the same pool as these people.

            Imagine anyone else bringing Kathy Shelton,
            Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick to a debate with Hillary Clinton and having them sit as near as possible to Bill Clinton.

            Back specifically to James โ€œBeaver Cleaverโ€ Comey, the Clintonโ€™s can kill him but President Trump can destroy his reputation with his friends, family, church community and colleagues, Comey has cultivated the boy scout image his entire career with the outside world.

            Comey does not want to lose his image, he is the good guy in the eyes of many, probably even in the eyes of his wife and children, perceived honor is something that makes men do very dangerous things like cast their lot against the Clintons.

            Comey looked physically ill during his testimony on Thursday. He is man weary and troubled of heart, mind and soul. Good.

    Trump Appoints 29 Federal Judges in TWO Daysโ€”Media Ignores

    http://www.capoliticalreview.com/capoliticalnewsandviews/trump-appoints-29-federal-judges-in-two-days-media-ignores/

    While the Democrats are going nuts about Russia and a corrupt former FBI Director, while the Democrats introduce a bill to impeach President Trump, he continues to do his job. On Monday and Tuesday he nominated 29 Federal judges, all of whom will be in place before the end of the year. A month ago, he appointed 12 other judges, plus a Supreme Court Justice. The take back of the courts for Constitutional government is moving forward.

    โ€œโ€œPresident Trump has just announced his latest batch of appellate and district court nominees. Itโ€™s a fantastic list, again drawing on his previous success from his Supreme Court list, by nominating Colorado Supreme Court Justice Allison Eid to fill Justice Gorsuchโ€™s vacant seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. Many of the nominees are well known in the conservative legal movement and have shown commitment to principled and evenhanded application of the law throughout their careers. For the many Americans whose top concern in November was electing a president who would put committed constitutionalists to the courts, this is another major victory.โ€

My daughter’s company (JLL) encourages working remotely, and she has done so for years now, usually 3 days a week. She often meets with her employees/contractors at coffee shops, or they use phone conferencing.

    lilbirdee12โ€™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

    According to Chris Ruddy President Trump may fire Mueller. The press is going mad ๐Ÿ˜ !

    I hope he fires him, there is cause to fire him. There is clear evidence of Comey’s dubious plot to get a special prosecutor and clear evidence that Comey hates Trump ๐Ÿ˜Š. There is clear evidence that Mueller has a close personal and relationship with Comey who will be a key witness in any case that Mueller invents.

    Comey said under oath President Trump has never been the subject of a criminal investigation. There is no justification for wasting the tax payers money on a witch hunt.

    Time to throw them all out on their ears.
