    10 good things about today ๐Ÿ™‚ !

    1) The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards – Amazing Grace

    2) When the world is mad.

    Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.โ€

    3) Alan Dershowitz declares that President Trump is not his bestie.

    ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I will be chuckling about this all day!

    President Trump you are not my bestie!! Signed Alan Dershowitz

    4) I will never wear a hijab or a burqa.

    5) Shen Yun

    A celebration of true resistance through the beauty of dance.

    (The dances the ensemble performs are outlawed in China.)

    6) The Iranian Regime will fall.

    Amid the onslaught of the religious dictatorship, which seeks to intimidate all through unmatched brutality, the perseverance of the Iranian Resistance foretells a bright future and rekindles hope in an oppressed society. __Maryam Rajavi (My favorite Iranian)

    7) Speaking of immigration and The Wall.

    President Trump has now systematically built an irrefutable case that Democrats have no interest in compromise. None. Zero. Not a hint of it.__David Limbaugh

    8) Whereโ€™s Ruthie?

    9) The NE Patriots won their game on 01/20/19 and they are going to the Super Bowl. The NE Patriots seem to be the most reviled team in the NFL. People who are still supporting the NFL are stuck watching Tom Brady and Bill Belichick (Both long time President Trump supporters) go to another Super Bowl. I hope it is a blowout and the Patriots skunk whoever they are playing.

    10) The fiasco of the false narrative being pushed about the boys from Covington and the grace with which Nick Sandmann responded, reminded me to reread Rudyard Kiplingโ€™s poem.


    If you can keep your head when all about youย 

    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,ย ย 

    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

    But make allowance for their doubting too;ย ย ย 

    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting

    Or being lied about, donโ€™t deal in lies,

    Or being hated, donโ€™t give way to hating,

    And yet donโ€™t look too good, nor talk too wise:

    If you can dreamโ€”and not make dreams your master;ย ย ย 

    If you can thinkโ€”and not make thoughts your aim;ย ย ย 

    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

    And treat those two impostors just the same;ย ย ย 

    If you can bear to hear the truth youโ€™ve spoken

    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

    And stoop and build โ€™em up with worn-out tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings

    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

    And lose, and start again at your beginnings

    And never breathe a word about your loss

    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

    To serve your turn long after they are gone,ย ย ย 

    And so hold on when there is nothing in you

    Except the Will which says to them: โ€˜Hold on!โ€™

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,ย ย 

    Or walk with Kingsโ€”nor lose the common touch

    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

    If all men count with you, but none too much;

    If you can fill the unforgiving minute

    With sixty secondsโ€™ worth of distance run,ย ย ย 

    Yours is the Earth and everything thatโ€™s in it,ย ย ย 

    Andโ€”which is moreโ€”youโ€™ll be a Man, my son!

    Moslems in Mindanao, Philippines are voting on autonomy today. They are voting on a referendum that will allow them autonomy, sort of, from the central Philippine government. If it’s approved, and smart money says it will easily be approved, the Mindanao government will have control over legislative, fiscal and executive powers while Manila retains other powers. The area will be autonomous but not independent…we’ll see how long that lasts.

    The terrorist MILF (the Moro Islamic Liberation Front ‘MILF’) will be given interim control over the
    area when the area becomes autonomous and will control it until a more general election in 2022 though it’s doubtful any other party will prevail. Other Moslem-heavy areas will be given the opportunity to become part of the autonomous region on February 6th, say goodbye to the Philippines.

    Many in Canada are trying to figure out how and where they can get political asylum should Trudeau’s party win the next election and the boy remains as P.M. One of my relatives is emigrating to Mexico to live with family there. As is obvious, Trudy plans to “fundamentally transform” Canada like BHO wanted and he plus the Dems still want for America.

    Convicted jihadist โ€œwill be allowed back in Canada thanks to Trudeau government lawโ€
    By Canadian writer Christine Douglass-Williams – January 21, 2019

    โ€œConvicted terrorist, Tahawwur Hussain Rana with dual Pakistani and Canadian citizenship is going to be allowed back in Canada once he is done serving his sentence in the US in 2021 due to a law made by the Trudeau government.โ€ The former Conservative government revoked the dual citizenship to those who had been convicted of terrorism.

    Just learned something new – and kind of cool. The word ‘Taser’ is short for Tom Swift’s Electric Rifle, which was a book published in 1911. The inventor was inspired by the book of that name to invent the Taser. The Tom Swift books were written by the same writing syndicate that wrote Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys.

    Is Ginsburg dead or is Fox just certain she will die in 2019? I know the date is easyily changed but if it is a pe-obit why put in the date?

    • It was probably a total accident, but sheโ€™s been very ill with pneumonia after having her lung surgery. I am wondering if the media is trying to gently break the info that she wonโ€™t be long for this world, because the left is going to come unglued when it happens. Maybe they are slowly letting the public know.

    I just heard the saddest thing from my friend. She had told me another friend of hers had just found out last week that there is nothing more they can do in her fight against her breast cancer. Her husband didn’t take it well and quit eating and drinking and ended up in the hospital. He died last night. Now, she still has to deal with her breast cancer and plan a funeral for her husband. To make it worse, they hadn’t told the grown children about the breast cancer or him. SMH A lot for her to handle. Please keep her in your prayers.

    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.

    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    Gavin Newsom just appointed a CA surgeon general. This is terrifying. She is a Clinton Foundation member and her studies were sponsored by soros.
    Newsom is very dangerous.

    Burke Harris received her medical degree from theย University of California, Davis.[8]ย Following receipt of her master’s degree in public health from theย Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health,[9]ย she went on to serve a residency atย Stanfordย in pediatrics.[10]

    Her graduate studies were supported byย The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans.

    Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday announced the appointment of a pediatrician as Californiaโ€™s first-ever surgeon general.

    Newsom said in a news release that Dr. Nadine Burke Harris will focus on combating the root causes of serious health conditions and use her office to reach young families across the state.

    Nadine Burke Harris@DrBurkeHarris

    Looking forward to rolling up my sleeves as CA’s first Surgeon General. Thank you @GavinNewsom for your bold vision for health for all Californians. #preventscreenandheal!
