    I know it is Christmas weekend, but please take a moment to be aware of what is going on with Joy Villa. I have noticed Tweets that she is a plant and a Scientologist. I haven’t had time, energy or inclination to investigate.

    Then I saw this article this morning.

    Corey Lewandowski Accused of Repeatedly Slapping Singer Joy Villa’s Butt

    Then I remembered that President Trump is looking into revoking Scientology’s tax exempt church status (which it never should have been awarded). I think Villa’s intention was to set up President Trump but the opportunity never presented itself. Scientology is all about the money President Trump is a threat to them.

    • She’s gotten too close to Ivanka, in my opinion. Joy needs to be shut down, and quickly.

        I am not keeping up on her at all. Terrible news that she is close to Ivanka.

        Ivanka really is a weak link. Trump needs to give her some job outside of D.C. and the spotlight, but even then it will be hard to get her to check her facts, and think before talking. My hubby was just telling me some incorrect comments she was making about the tax plan (sigh).

        BTW – about college degrees of rich people’s children – I monitored the final exams a few times at a well known college whose name and reputation you would recognize. (One of the seven sisters colleges – what a real eye opener that was!). There was a VERY NICE young lady having a separate final exam I monitored. She was “special needs” meaning she had a learning disability, which she did appear to have. She went over the time limit, and I went in to tell her that her time was up. I found her boyfriend in the room with her going over her exam paper. She was sincerely distraught at not being able to do the test, and I felt bad for her, but that really is not allowed, and I politely told them that. I then called the office, and they said they did not care, it did not matter, her wealthy father was giving the college a generous donation. He was buying her a degree! “Buying her a degree!” Those were the colleges admins exact words! So don’t think just because a rich person has a college degree, that they are necessarily intelligent.

        I am NOT in ANY WAY saying Ivanka is “special needs” as this nice young lady was, but Ivanka seems to be “off” somehow. Perhaps being the favorite child of a billionaire, she has been able to talk without checking her facts, and thinking first, but this is not the society columns of NYC. This is the worlds most powerful arena, and she does not seem to realize the gravity of where she is. (I still am aghast at the one shoulder, bright pink dress she wore to Pres Trump’s first speech before congress. It was completely inappropriate. It belonged at a nightclub!) It appears she and her husband are liberals, and I wonder if someone on the opposing side of her father is playing the part of her friend/confidant, and giving her subtle, but bad advice to reflect poorly on her father. I realize she is her father’s favorite, but the survival of this country is more important than appeasing a favorite child.

        • I think she’s well intentioned, but very much in over her head. I believe completely that parents are buying their children’s education. That’s much of the problem with the elite… they actually aren’t very intelligent.


    • G-d&Country says:

      I find this hard to believe. I know nothing of this November party in D.C., but I live in the same very small town as C.L. Gossip travels fast here, and neither myself, my husband or friends have heard anything like this about him. He has a nice, quiet family here. New Hampshire is also a very small, rabidly political state, and nothing like this has come up about C.L. before, which you would have thought would have come up considering his closeness to Trump during the campaign. Remember that “news” reporter that accused him of grabbing her was proved to be a total fraud.
      The progs/NWO globalists are desperate to destroy anyone associated with Trump, and are grasping at anything as they go down. This is a diversion from the further investigations and reports coming to light about Obama, Hillary etc. They need to distract from their own horrid/illegal actions. They are trying to pull another “accuse = guilty” on C.L. thereby implicating Trump by association. This does not work anymore, especially on someone like C.L.
      By the way to clarify: #1. I do NOT know C.L. personally. I am talking about his reputation in a very small town and state. #2. If he did have a bad reputation I would NOT be defending him just for political reasons, because lies only cause more problems in the end. #3. I am sick of the “accuse= guilty” dirty tactics of the left. Not only does it hurt good people wrongly accused, it makes it harder for those who actually have been truly sexually harassed.

        So maybe this is why the sudden take-down attempt at C.L. They are trying to discredit him before he testifies :
        Bannon, Lewandowski asked to testify by House Intel panel: report
        By Julia Manchester – 12/22/17 11:25 AM EST
        Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon and President Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski have received requests to testify before the House Intelligence Committee regarding the Russia probe early next year, according to Bloomberg News. The request to appear before the panel is reportedly for early January. The panel did not issue subpoenas. The letters were reportedly sent earlier this week.

          My guess is that her original target was Trump but he was unavailable. He is probably very careful not to be put into a situation where accusations can be made.

          Corey seems very solid to me, I think this is a smear job, I trust no one involved in Scientology.

    Morning Stella, and all of you wonderful people,
    Stunning beautiful lighthouse pic, I do love me some blue.
    Wanted to echo what some of you have said the past few days. It is a treat to come here to this Place every morning, and to check in throughout the day and see what you all are up to.
    The beauty, wit, wisdom, nourishment, inspiration, provoking, banter, warmth, experiences, prayers and all of the other interesting tidbits gathered here and there, and then eagerly brought and offered. The ups, the downs, triumphs and tragedies.
    Don’t know any of you personally, but personally I enjoy all of you. It is a pleasure to glean bits and pieces of your lives as you share, trying to put together in my mind the who, what and where’s of y’all. And I look forward to the newness of each day. The “news” that you deliver, which truly is what will matters most in the end.
    It is quite the collection, north and south, east and west. Women, men. Probably the biggest connection we share is age. (No children, but thinking Wooly may be the youngest, and would NEVER venture into guessing the most seasoned.) And a love of country, family, tradition, etc. Some wiser than others, some more caring, and others more thoughtful.
    But all of you who bring their own distinct gifts that make up the whole, a beautiful patchwork quilt that is ever expanding, and like a mothers heart, always able to take in more. I know that you all have a place in mine.

    Bit sentimental today. And although CTH born and bred in this wonderful world of internet info, this is the refuge from the Refuge. Thank you!
    As always,
    Keep Calm and Stellar On!

    For today’s “painting” I offer the classic Charlie Brown on the last shopping day before Christmas:

    Charlie Brown: Isn’t there anyone, who knows what Christmas is all about?!
    Linus: Sure Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights please?
    And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, β€œFear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings o great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ, the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, β€œGlory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men.
    That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

    Enjoy! Have a happy, merry day everyone! I have to get some work done πŸ˜‰

    So the mad dash has begun in earnest but I wanted to take a moment to thank Stella for hosting a warm, welcoming, informative and beautiful web site. It’s unusual to feel such camaraderie and such a connection to so many people, and it is a testament to each and every one of you that this site exists the way it does.

    So thank you, fellow Stellars, for everything you’ve done to enhance my life this year.

    May you all enjoy a warm and wonderful Christmas.

    God bless us every one.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
