      Morning Wee ! President Donald Trump making our wishes come true one counterpunch at a time.

      Just think about it. President Trump has always said he is a counter puncher.

      If we know so much about the anti-Americanism, thieving, selling away of America’s sovereignty, greed and corruption that is taking place to enrich and empower the political elite lives and the lives of their cronies and families think how much more President Trump knows.

      Think how many people President Trump has by the short hairs.

      Think about the ginormous counter punch that is coming.

      “If that f*cking b*stard wins we’ll all hang from the gallows”__Hillary Clinton

      My belief is that the only thing that is left up to the malfeasants is whether they want to be buried dead or alive. These rats are going to turn on each other like we have never witnessed on a political level once the shiitake hits the fan. Every single one of them is a psychotic vile piece of filth that is going to be willing to cut each others throats for exile in a foreign land as opposed to facing the music of their own misdeeds.

      We’ve got this.

      Never forget;

      Foot Soldier of the Left

      Foot Soldier of the Republic.

      And more hope.

      Love this video cover picture with the President digging the Dem grave. When I ran the video though I was disappointed. The only thing added was RIP. I don’t know that the Dems will be able to RIP. So this remark gives them false hope.

      I don’t think Dems can rest in peace with the way they are behaving.

      Rev 21:8 says: β€œBut as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

      About 5 years ago I heard an old Baptist Preacher preach on salvation. One of the things he said is that people who are not saved by the blood of Jesus
      Christ go to hell. The thing that really stuck with me is these people will remember that they had the chance to be saved and did not accept the freely offered salvation.

      At one of Obama’s DNC conventions the Democrats tried to remove the reference to the God of the Holy Bible from many of their documents. They were not successful.

      Psalm 33:12 (NIV) says: β€œBlessed is the nation whose God is the Lord”

      Before we moved to NC one of the things I did was study the platforms of the major political parties. Part of the reason I did it was because there were so many Democrats I thought they might be different in NC. After reading the platform I said nope I can’t be a Dem. They had many things I was completely against.

      At that time the NC voter registration stats were as follows:

      2004 Dems 2,408,759 Reps 1,750,359 Unaffiliated 910,318

      In 2018 the NC voter registration stats are as follows:

      2018 Dems 2,677,376 Reps 2,106,658 Unaffiliated 2,244,694

      This means in 14 years Dems have moved from having 47.5% of the NC voters to having only 39.6% of all the NC voters.

      Wonder what the movement will be after this year?

          When I read your note I glanced out the window and saw beauty all around. Instantly the hymn β€œThis is the day the Lord hath made” came to mind. I looked for a good video on YouTube.

    Could a Mark Judge lawsuit exonerate Kavanaugh?
    Alleged accomplice has grounds for defamation after losing home, job

    …That cloud might be cleared up, however, if the man Ford named as an accomplice in the alleged assault, Mark Judge, files a defamation lawsuit against his accuser.

    Judge seems to have a good case, writes Megan Fox for PJ Media, considering that the FBI found the allegations without merit and his life has been turned upside down.

    Since Ford came forward in September, Judge, a cancer survivor, has lost his job providing in-home care for an elderly person along with his home and his freelance writing work.

    He is raising money on crowdfunding site called Funding Morality and has received $48,549 to date.

    The description at the fundraising site says:

    In September 2018, Mark Judge was unwillingly thrust into the national spotlight as part of the nomination and approval process for Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. At that time, Judge, a writer whose work has appeared in Christianity Today and The Stream, was a cancer survivor and was dealing with significant health issues and medical bills.

    Without following constitutional standards of due process and the presumption of innocence, Judge was tried in the court of public opinion and in the secular press. As with others involved, his privacy was violated. An allegation that should have been addressed in private became a public circus, causing suffering for all parties involved.

    Along with Ford, Fox suggested, Judge could also go after Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels who brought forward the dubious claims against Kavanaugh of Julie Swetnick.

    β€œIn order to get his reputation back, Judge may have no other choice but to sue. The damage done to him by the false allegations has been severe,” Fox writes…

    • Thank you for sharing this, Lovely. Those transplant tales are so bittersweet for me given our experience with Josiah. We have yet to cross that threshold of thanking the donor family & I need prayer for how to formulate the contact letter. Apparently there are some states that would never have transplanted my son, given the magnitude of his myriad issues, & I don’t want to cause the donor family pain if they discover that their loved one’s liver was given to a person with special needs…

        I am so happy that you are in a state that recognizes Josiah’s humanity. Amazing times.

        My friend received a heart. All that we know is the young man who died was 27, and we only know that by mistake. The waiting time passed and my friend sent a letter to the family. They did not respond. I understand that. I pray for their peace.

        • It’s a complex, emotional, & highly personal process. It’s something I’d hoped to discuss with the Social Worker or Psychologist from the pediatric liver transplant team before they transferred Josiah’s care to adults but for about the last nearly 2 years (appts every 6 months) these disciplines were either unavailable or they only spoke w/ J & didn’t offer me any time to discuss/process….C’est la vie.

          How is your friend w/ the new heart doing? They told us before J’s transplant that we’d just be trading one chronic disease for another, but since he didn’t ever Seem to have liver disease we never really perceived his pre-transplant liver situation as a chronic disease. Fortunately his post-transplant course has been nearly problem free–likely due to God’s mercy, prayer, & the fact that he wasn’t really very “liver sick” before surgery…

    Dr. Lee’s YouTube channel is one of my subscriptions. Those Stellars who live in Texas might have heard of the water rise at Lake LBJ, which on the map seems to be of large size. Dr. Lee relates the happenings at his lake property. His son Mark who he writes of at the end has been diagnosed with a malignant tumor in his sinuses and both men have asked for our prayers. Mark is in his early 30s.

    My “Bad Luck and Trouble” Continues – Lake LBJ Floods our Boathouse 2018
    Out on the Ranch (with Dr. Lee)

    From Wikipedia: Lake Lyndon B. Johnson (more commonly referred to as Lake LBJ and originally named Lake Granite Shoals) is a reservoir on the Colorado River in the Texas Hill Country about 45 miles northwest of Austin. The reservoir was formed in 1950 by the construction of Granite Shoals Dam by the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). The Colorado River and the Llano River meet in the northern portion of the lake at Kingsland.

    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.
