    In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. – Albert Schweitzer

    10 Reasons today is a good day 🙂 !

    1) We have the most dedicated to America and her values while simultaneously funniest president ever.

    Comedic Genius.

    2) Tea Exists. I don’t have to harvest it or dry it or do anything except go to the store buy it and partake of its goodness.

    3) Alan Dershowitz will one day leave the democratic plantation. He is still too emotionally attached to what his version of the democratic party is, but he is like Dick Morris and one day he will simply have to #walkaway. Dersh already knows this, but the longest journey in the world is from the head to the heart.

    4) My favorite Iranian continues the fight.

    The clerical regime which holds the world’s record in executions will only understand the decisive language of force. __Maryam Rajavi

    5) Someone is letting Iran know that President Trump is willing to order strategic strikes against the ruling mullahs of Iran.

    White House Sought Options to Strike Iran

    6) Vile, unhealthy, President Trump hater and professional dullard,Tom Arnold challenged Mike Cernovich to a boxing match. All monies raised will go to a veteran’s charity.

    Last year Arnold also challenged Cernovich but Cernovich refused to do it because Arnold is a 59 year old goat and Arnold refused to make it a match for charity.

    This year Cernovich accepted.

    PS Tom Arnold also challenged President Donald Trump to a wrestling match. As POTUS says, ”Some people are dumb”.

    7) Ocasio is beginning to be seen as contrived rather than spontaneous and unfiltered. The worst thing that can happen to a person who has charisma and is unconsciously using that charisma is for that person to become aware of their own natural charisma and start consciously using it to manipulate people. They become instantly unlikeable and their charisma quickly becomes irritating manipulation which renders them unlikeable.

    I see this happening with Ocasio. Her base is strong but the exodus is starting.

    Average looney Liberals on Ocasio;

    ”Am I the only liberal who finds Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez annoying?”__nneka

    Omg she’s more annoying them trump. __Logan Bauer @logan1836

    Yes, she is annoying!__Diane Sweet @DianeSw92988110

    Okay on another note…Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is kind of annoying.__Nakeisha B. @NakieshaB_

    I don’t know… I wanna give Alexandria Ocasio Cortez a fair shot…(And I will force my self to keep an open mind) … But my first impression is, she’s naive to the point of being annoying.__Thomas @jazzmessenger

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez takes the early lead in the race for Most Annoying Congressional Newcomer. W.M. @Minuteman04

    Little on the popular front is harder to get overcome than “annoying,” Ocasio’s voice, her facade, her faux “Girl from the Bronx” routine, her “aren’t I too cute” are already growing bothersome to her base.

    Next 😎.

    8) The democrats continue to party in Puerto Rico as federal employees go without their first paycheck. Joe “democrat” six-pack is being dragged into reality whether or not he likes it or not.

    Meanwhile President Trump continues to act presidential

    I’m in the White House, waiting. The Democrats are everywhere but Washington as people await their pay. They are having fun and not even talking!__President Donald Trump

    9) The undeserving of the title Sheriff, Scott Israel, has been very publicly kicked to the curb, Trumpian style.

    Bang. Zoom. To the Moon! Take your picture of you and The Beast off of your desk and get the heck out of here. Do not pass Go. See ya’ in the funny papers.

    Effective immediately, I am officially suspending Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for his repeated failures, incompetence and neglect of duty. __Ron DeSantis

    10) Poetry

    The Instinct of Hope __John Clare

    Is there another world for this frail dust
    To warm with life and be itself again?
    Something about me daily speaks there must,
    And why should instinct nourish hopes in vain?
    ‘Tis nature’s prophesy that such will be,
    And everything seems struggling to explain
    The close sealed volume of its mystery.
    Time wandering onward keeps its usual pace
    As seeming anxious of eternity,
    To meet that calm and find a resting place.
    E’en the small violet feels a future power
    And waits each year renewing blooms to bring,
    And surely man is no inferior flower
    To die unworthy of a second spring?

    Have a beautiful day folks 🙂 !

    • Morning lovely! Thank you for the entertaining post! AOC is annoying! And when the time comes that the cute has worn off, she will be standing all alone, and won’t have a clue as to why.

      Happy Monday!

      Re: options to strike Iran. There are things called ‘contingency plans’. They are scenarios for various events, things that might happen that you want to be prepared for so you have an operational framework in place so that if, let’s say, Peru launches an invasion of the US you aren’t caught having to create a response from zero.

      These plans include targets to be hit in what order given certain circumstances to reach a desired outcome. You just don’t go in and nuke Tehran, you have a number of scenarios depending on what level of force you need. Maybe you only want to neutralize ports, or ports/airfields in a certain area, to prevent Iran from launching a naval attack. Maybe you just want to smack their swift attack craft and anti-ship missiles then wait to see what they do. You gotta have a plan.

      Iran’s been doing a lot of on-ground things with and without Russia to destabilize the area and step up its long term plan of destroying Israel and I believe Trump was just getting ALL of his options in line just in case Iran couldn’t be reigned in by Russia. I’m sure he had a wide range of plans on his desk to deal with Iran and a military option was one of them – gotta have a full quiver of arrows before you go hunting.

      Another option that I’m thinking is that Trump and his advisors know that State leaks like a sieve and they’d be queried on any military options as State has to be in on any military actions. One of the many leaks at State would let the ‘military options’ request out and it would get to the Russians who’d get the hint. State’s long been a cesspool, of leaks, we have the mysterious phone call to Noriega just before Just Cause, the reported warnings to Saddam that may have allowed him to more WMDs…twice…most all attributed to despot supporters at State, though Congress has its share of leakers too.

      I don’t consider a request to list all options available to be anything more that the POTUS assembling a full toolbag before trying to fix a problem.

    And Americans will not go gentle into that good night.

    No we will not Mr. President.

    Speaking of the political powers in DC “But I have to be careful they’re dirty players, they’re no good.”___President Trump

    Yet there are people so ignorant, arrogant and delusional that they still think that they know more about the world, politics and the deep-seated corruption in our government than does President Donald Trump.

    What an insult.

    God speed Mr. President.

    For all of you wondering, today’s photo is of the GORGEOUS ceiling of the library at the Cathedral in Siena, Italy. If you are traveling to Tuscany, you simply must see this. Also: the cathedral at Orvieto and the Fra Angelico paintings in the side chapel there.

    The Jayme Closs case is just so chilling.

    Thomas Patterson said he saw Jayme at the bus stop and knew that he was going to take her then.Everything he dod started with that chance sighting.

    The murders. The kidnapping. The abuse.

    Patterson’s demonic self reminds me of child molester Kenneth Parnell who said “I’m going to go get me a boy” and went out and kidnapped Steven Stayner who he raped for years.

    Dead spirits, evil souls.

    And to Wee. The Barron County DA , Brian Wright, is doing exactly what you said, basically said Jayme did a fine job escaping but it was LE efforts that really saved her.

    To Wright’s credit he has basically told the MSM to go to h*ll, the case is now in the legal system and it isn’t going to be a sensationalized to feed the mob’s curiosity.

    No charges from Gordon WI yet so Patterson is charged only with his Barron County crimes at the moment.

    Shame that public executions have been done away with.

      Out of curiosity, I just looked up the man who kidnapped and murdered Polly Klaas in 1993. Findings: “Richard Allen Davis (b. June 2, 1954) is an American convicted murderer, whose criminal record fueled support for passage of California’s “three-strikes law” for repeat offenders. He is currently on death row in Adjustment Center at San Quentin State Prison, California.

      Whatever in the world is an “Adjustment Center”?

      Further from Wiki: “After a long, tumultuous trial, Davis was convicted on June 18, 1996, of first-degree murder and four special circumstances (robbery, burglary, kidnapping and a lewd act on a child) in Klaas’ death.[”

      And just what the heck is meant by “a lewd act on a child”?

      So far he’s got to live 25 years longer than the darling girl he murdered. Despicable!

      In memoriam:..

    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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
