  2. Good Morning Everyone. Good to “see” all my Stellar friends again ๐Ÿ™‚
    To continue on with the ‘end of summer’ theme, here’s what happened with the familiy’s other dog when the pool was closed yesterday:

    I am going to try and get some sleep, working on over 30 hours without any shut eye.

    But I believe that I have figured out what is going on with Fake Ford & Fraudster Feinstein v Judge Kavanaugh & President Trump.

    We are my friends witnesses to the greatest game of chicken in modern politics.

    President Trump never blinks. Stupid, stupid Liberals.

    Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed, all of the hand wringing aside. The Liberals still have the same playbook, shame your opponent into retreat.

    Justice Kavanaugh !

    Like all of you, I have been thinking a lot about the Supreme Court hearings and the outrageous attack on Judge Kavanaugh.

    Calumny is a despicable sin, the destruction of another person’s good name through the telling of lies and use of deceit. It is a violation of the Eigth Commandment, Thou Shalt Not Lie.

    In some Catholic examinations of conscience it is listed under the Fifth Commandment, Thou Shalt Not Kill. To kill a man’s reputation is to destroy a part of his life, a terrible sin. Further, just as you cannot make restitution for taking a man’s life, you also can never call back the words that harm someone so drastically, but even so, justice requires one to do as much as is possible to right the wrong, to make reparations for our grave sins.

    This situation with Judge Kavanaugh certainly is the best illustration of the reason calumny can be a sin against the Fifth Commandment that I’ve seen.

    Dershowitz GOES OFF on Christine Fordโ€™s Outrageous Demands: โ€œEvery Civil Libertarian Should Be Outraged!โ€ฆ IT IS INSANE!โ€ (VIDEO)

    Alan Dershowitz: Every civil libertarian in the country, liberal, conservative, Republican, Democrat, led by the Civil Libertarian Union should be outraged by this demand. It is so un-American. Youโ€™re the accuser. You get on the witness stand. You testify. You make your accusation. You get cross-examined. THEN the accused responds. It turns the entire legal system on its head. It is INSANE to ask an accused person to deny the accusation before he has heard the accusation being made and cross-examined. Sure, the FBI should continue its background check. It should also call everyone else who may have been at this party. All of that is true. But the idea that he goes first? I want to hear from the American Civil Liberties Union. Where are they? This is the most fundamental denial of due process.

    Heh he’ll show us his calendars–let’s see Ford’s:
    NYT News Alert: Kavanaugh to Give Senate Calendars From 1982 to Back Up Denial

    Sept. 23, 2018

    Judge Brett M. Kavanaughโ€™s team says calendars from 1982 do not corroborate his accuserโ€™s claims, but acknowledges that it does not disprove them.T.J. Kirkpatrick for The New York Times

    WASHINGTON โ€” Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh has calendars from the summer of 1982 that he plans to hand over to the Senate Judiciary Committee that do not show a party consistent with the description of his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, according to someone working for his confirmation.

    The calendars do not disprove Dr. Blaseyโ€™s allegations, Judge Kavanaughโ€™s team acknowledged. He could have attended a party that he did not list. But his team will argue to the senators that the calendars provide no corroboration for her account of a small gathering at a house where he allegedly pinned her to a bed and tried to remove her clothing.

    The calendars show, according to the person working for his confirmation, that he was out of town much of the summer at the beach or away with his parents. When he was at home, the calendars list his basketball games, movie outings, football workouts and college interviews. A few parties are mentioned but include names of friends other than those identified by Dr. Blasey.

    Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Blasey plan to testify before the Judiciary Committee on Thursday as it considers whether to endorse his nomination to the Supreme Court. Dr. Blaseyโ€™s allegation of sexual assault when they were both teenagers has upended his seeming path to confirmation and set the stage for a public test of credibility when the two appear separately before the senators.

    The big, beautiful flag behind President Trump, posted above by Lucille, inspires me to share here my recent flag-flying experience.

    I have interesting Latino story/ies from work. This is going to be as I speak so may not be in best of sequence.

    It seems more than half of workers in building are such. I noticed right off, not much stuff political or identifying an individualโ€™s politics. I also did not register the lack of American paraphernalia donning work spaces until one day I saw two stations with the Mexico Flag (made from company fabric scraps), which got me looking around for USA flags. Only one; on a citizen Hispanicโ€™s station whose son is on third tour of duty in not nice place. Her flag was little and I honestly am surprised I never noticed it before as I am at her station a lot. Maybe it is new; just do not know.

    The same day I noticed the green/white/orangish-red flags a girl in station close by had a social justice shirt on โ€” something about black lives matter brown lives matter all lives matter no wall resistance and a bunch of other stuff that would have gotten me in trouble for staring at her chest (even if I am a woman). The back said โ€œrespect existance or get resistanceโ€ or something of .the sort.

    So, I did what I wanted to do when I started but thought could not; I brought in a nice-sized AMERICAN flag. A beeeuteeful red white and blue AMERICAN flag, representing These United States of America!

    Ok. I need to back up and fill in a few things. My duties have me interfacing directly with many of the others workers and even though do not speak same language, we manage to have fun and be happy together. For some reason the Hispanics took a liking to me, after rough beginning, and do nice things for me to make my job more pleasant.

    Another point to mention is the lady wearing shirt is a return employee. I guess she worked there awhile back, left and returned about a month or so ago. A few days before she wore her shirt telling me to respect existance she had an old lady and middle-age man outside window/door while she talked to supervisor and from somewhere I heard, โ€œnot if they are illegalโ€.

    Back to flag. I put my bigger-than-the-foreign-flags flag on my thread pole and, oh, how beautiful. I feel so much better with her there. Funny thing is the day I brought it in, many Hispanics were in traditioal Mexican clothing and wearing big Mexico flag bows in hair and pinned on shirts. There was no line at microwaves as all were having parties. I asked a bilingual gal what holiday โ€œyou all celebratingโ€? And she was so offended I included her. She said she was not one of them. She is Texan! Then I looked around and noticed the hispanics are divided down the middle here. Half celebrating Mexico,s independence and the other half not. I guess my timing of bringing AMERICAN flag could be construed as passive racism?

    The half that celebrated no longer look at me, let alone smile, and all commraderie is gone from them. Since the flag went up.

    I will tell you one thing, I am gonna celebrate St Joseph Day. I am so proud of being Polish these days, with the way Poland is standing up for themselves today! And, oh my, the Fourth of July is going to be fantastic. Doing it BIG! Gonna have huuuge bows to pass out, food, flags, buttons, constitutions, the whole shebang. Huge. โ€œParty in the USAโ€.

      I’d wager that the SJW T-shirt gal is the instigator of the Mexican celebrators’ boycott of you. She likely has been radicalizing them. And besides…Mexican citizens get plenty of “1/3 of the U.S. belongs to Mexico” in their schools. Doesn’t matter that international law rules that as incorrect, of course..

  18. 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.
