    A strange thing happened late this afternoon after turning on my computer…up popped a notice from Google Chrome that all my settings had been removed. Nothing else…no explanation…but the removal affected my AdBlocker.

    Makes me suspicious that Google got annoyed that I wasn’t giving them them proper forced respect regarding their choice of ads for me and simply eliminated the block program or app or whatever it’s called. Ah, maannnn…now, of course, the ads are multitudinous.

        I went (protested outside–wasn’t going to spend $40 on a ticket, which would go into Richards’ pocket). Responses to our protest ran the gamut.

            The young lady coordinating the protest (from Students for Life), said that at a few of Richards’ appearance on the East Coast (which were only $30, go figure) they had a couple of students buy tickets and go inside, to ask questions. Which I thought a good idea, but our presence outside at Dominican was needed. And I’m not so adept at “on the fly” verbal confrontation. I leave that to others who are gifted that way.

              I doubt seriously your presence on the inside, unless accompanied by a large crowd carring baseball bats, would have made any difference. Protesting outside would at least give you access to any press showing up to catalog the unbelievers and your $$$ wouldn’t go to her support.

                Actually, I have faith in the impact of devastatingly crafted questions and rebuttals. The TRUTH can be very effective, even with what appears to be closed minds. Repeating the truth, over and over.

                And calmness is extremely important, too; unshakeability. I have much to learn in that area–I get shook easily, so am better as physical backup/silent witness/newsbringer. Unless God gives me the words, which he has sometimes. Then I just go with it.

      Did you read about the Jesuit college (of course it’s the scandal causing apostate Jesuits) that is having a Pride Prom? I think it’s Marquette.

      I haven’t read your article linked yet, but I do hope it’s true and they have booted them. Also, if any money from the Church established that school, they need to make them buy the property.

      I’m furious and sick of bishops who have such grave responsibilities for souls playing politics with doctrine and morals and allowing anything to happen in these schools. Get off your supported by the faithful overfed butts and do your avowed job.

    Syrian Targets
    Middle East Perspectives by Rick FranconaΒ·Friday, April 13, 2018

    Syria military sources stated that American strikes that lasted for at least an hour targeted upwards of 10 locations in Syria, most of them concentrated in the Damascus and its suburbs, in addition to Homs in the center of the country.
    According to the military sources the following areas were targeted:
    1. 105th Republican Guard Brigade
    2. Air Defense Base, Qasiyun Mountain, Damascus
    3. Al-Mazzah Air Base
    4. Al-Dumayr air base
    5. Scientific Research Center, Barzah, Damascus
    6. Scientific Research Center, Jamariyah, Damascus suburbs
    7. 41st Special Forces Brigade
    8. Military sites near al-Ruhaybah in the Eastern al-Qalamun in the Damscus suburbs
    9. Sites in al-Kiswah – Damascus suburbs
    =================
    My notes:
    1. Primary regime protection unit in Damascus, suspected of using chemical weapons
    2. Huge facility overlooking Damascus, used in 2013 to launch chemicals into the eastern suburb
    3. Air base in southern section of Damascus – all sorts of special units there, likely chemicals as well
    4. Major air base about 25 miles northeast of Damascus – helicopters probably operated from here
    5. Primary R&D facility for advanced weapons
    6. Primary R&D facility for advanced weapons
    7. Elite commando unit
    8. Numerous missile bases, and a chemical weapons storage area
    9. Major air/air defense command and control center

    My sources in #Syria indicate despite the #Iran/Assad propaganda machine’s claims, Russia took no action against cruise missiles in the US-led airstrike & only protected its bases in Tartus & Khmeimim of Latakia Province.

      Pentagon admitted yesterday that they ‘coordinated’ with Russia on flight paths sothat Russian assets wouldfn’t be hit – so it appears we hit a face-saving agreement with Russia that allowed us to waste a few hundred million in attack platforms against Syrian targets the Russians approved of. Russians have moved frontline defense equipment bloth on and offshore that could have made the cruise missile’s job a lot harder…but didn’t…hmmmmmm.
      ‘Large part of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal has been destroyed’ – great, gave allied propagandist apologist spinmeisters a green opportunity to recycle 2014 headlines, no trees killed in the making of bthis BS. Come on now, they are RUSSIAN stockpiles, Syrians couldn’t have made them unless they somehow had precursor chemicals stashed the 2014 clown and pony show missed OR they managed to buy them on the open market right under NATO’s nose. Or the Russians provided them.
      Making Sarin requires specialized chemical and equipment that a omniscient UN and NATO watchdog, not to mention NGOs, are paid to monitor – they wouldn’t let us down would they? OK, there is a way around that specialized equipment stuff BUT…that’s uniquely Russian too. Gimme a break.
      As I’ve been bouncing around nextdoor the Russians do not share our Mother Teresa vioew of chemical weapons and civilian casualties. They have a long line of use of chemical/bio weapons from WWII to today that we conveniently ignore – more denial. Their military doctrine treats WMDs as just another round of ammunition to be used as necessary, not something that takes great soul searching and political consensus – during the Cold War Russian firld Army commanders were authorized to individually authorize the use of tactical nuclear weapons. In Afghanistan and Vietnam there was abundant evidence of the use of chem weapons while Grozny should stand as proof that civilian casualties are of no concern to Russian commanders.

      A friend and I have discussed that all this hysteria over every little bit of weather that isn’t clear and sunny or more tempestuous than a spring rain just makes people less sensitive to severe weather alerts that they need to take seriously. He cited this thing about naming winter storms as an example. I have to agree.

    Question: does the First Amendment protect licentious and/or prururient speech?

    I ask because I’m trying make sense of what appears to be an incredibly stupid argument put forth next door, that Prez Trump’s signing of a bill that will help stop sex slave trafficking through the Internet somehow infringes on freedom of speech.

    I have several problems with this, the main one being the argument makes no sense to me.

    In other news, apparently there was a false flag in the UK:

    Turns out the chemical used was never used by Russia, but was by the US and NATO states. Oh, and it doesn’t actually work. That should have been a red flag, right there, that it wasn’t Russia.

    What It’s Like to Fly in Etihad’s First Class “Apartment”

    https://www.cntraveler.com/galleries/2015-04-29/what-its-like-to-fly-etihad-first-class-apartment

    Etihad Airways’ β€œFirst Apartment” doesn’t sound like an airplane seat at all. The one-room suite on select Airbus A380 routes promises privacy and extraordinarily personalized service at cruising altitude. Even though a higher class existsβ€”the $20,000 three-room “Residence”β€”the First Apartment is the more revolutionary of the two: a flying suite that’s attainable. I bought a ticket to see it for myself.

    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.
