    Ten beautiful things about today;

    1) Andrea Bocelli and his mum.

    2) Another sculpture created by Jeffro Uitto. Menagerie got me thinking about hoe I walk by a piece of driftwood and Jeffro Uitto walks by that same piece of driftwood and sees potential. The human mind isa beautiful thing.

    His cultures are not small. I believe the horse is about 10 feet tall.

    3) The 48 hour grace period for those vile humans who defamed the Covington boys runs out today. Those who have not given their mea culpa and retracted are so deep in the quicksand there is no hope of them not losing and losing big.

    4) A far shot but a possibility to the SOFUA debacle. Iโ€™ve always believed that President Trump likes to tip his hand and I think that there is ample evidence of this since he declared his candidacy.

    So what did he say? Words are President Trumpโ€™s sword and scalpel.

    President Trump said that it was Nancy Pelosiโ€™s โ€œprerogativeโ€ to disinvite him from the House Chambers so โ€œMehโ€ ok. He will hold the SOTUA after the shutdown is over.

    I thought โ€œprerogativeโ€ was an interesting choice of words.

    Then I thought.

    What is President Trumpโ€™s โ€œprerogativeโ€?

    His โ€œprerogativeโ€ is to declare a National Emergency at our border and start building The Wall.

    Declare a National Emergency. Open the government. Give the SOTUA on January 29th as scheduled.

    Twenty two hours ago.

    Without a Wall there cannot be safety and security at the Border or for the U.S.A. BUILD THE WALL AND CRIME WILL FALL!__President Trump

    Remember all of President Trumpsโ€™s victories.

    5) Looks like Nick Sandmann is not on Robert Barnes client list.

    Nicholas Sandmann’s family hires ‘attorney for the damned’ specializing in libel, slander

    The family of 16-year-old Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann, having already contracted Kentuckyโ€™s largest public relations form to help repair his image after a viral incident outside the Lincoln Memorial, on Thursday hired a Georgia attorney known for aggressive libel and slander suits against media organizations.

    L. Lin Wood, nicknamed โ€œattorney for the damnedโ€ by former CBS anchor Dan Rather, visited the Sandmann family earlier in the day, according to a news release from Sandmann family attorney Todd McMurtry.
    โ€œHe is committed to bringing justice to 16-year-old Nick Sandmann and his family,โ€ McMurtry wrote.
    Wood โ€œoften (seeks) eye-popping damages for those he believes have been libeled or slandered in the press,โ€according to a 2011 Washington Post article about his defense of Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain. (Cain had been facing accusations of sexual harassment that derailed his campaign.)

    Other notable clients include the family of JonBenet Ramsey, who were suspects in the child pageant queenโ€™s murder, and Richard Jewell, a Centennial Olympic Park guard misidentified as having bombed his workplace in 1996.

    So much for a 48 hour grace period ๐Ÿ™‚ .Which was a mistake in my opinion, but what do I know?The damage is done apologizing, reacting at this pint is meaningless. I think Barnes expected (rightly) that many people would simply double down on their defamation and they did so well played.

    Bravo Sandmann family!!!

    6) It is -8ยฐ degrees here today. I have no place to go. Windchill factor it is -25ยฐ. I have food, heat and tea ๐Ÿ™‚ !

    7) Super Bowl viewership is down and for the first time in decades the cost of advertising during the event has not increased. The cost is still astronomical but its anti-Americanism is coming home to roost in the only place it hurts them, their pocketbook.

    8) Three year old Casey Hathaway has been found safe and alive in the NC woods where he disappeared earlier this week. He was found last night โค๏ธ.


    10) Jayme Closs is reviving the $25,000 reward that was offered by the Jennie-O company to anyone providing information to Jaymeโ€™s whereabouts. Jaymeโ€™s parents were employed by Jennie-O.

    The FBI has nit revealed who will receive its $25,000 reward.

    I donโ€™t know what Ricky did or said but if the Leftist Mob has turned on him, well, the civl war is just as likely to be liberals attacking their own as it is the liberals attacking us.

    The Left never counted on their minions being anything other than compliant idiots, just like they never counted on there being a President Trump, the Left has no plan for turning back the torrent of violence when the minions figure out that their real enemy is people like Obama, Hillary and Hollywood.

    At the moment I’m taking a respite from watching THE WINDS OF WAR television series starring Robert Mitchum, Polly Bergen, Jan-Michael Vincent, Ali MacGraw. I’m pretty sure I saw the first episode when it aired in February 1983. But I must have missed episode 2 and didn’t want to watch the other episodes without it, because I don’t recall the rest of the series at all.

    Wiki says: “The almost 15-hour-long series was shown by ABC in seven parts over seven evenings, between February 6 and February 13, 1983, and attracted an average of 80 million viewers per night.” Other interesting production facts can be found at…

    The leads are played by actors quite a bit older than their characters. Mitchum was 64, MacGraw was 42 and Vincent 37 when it was filming. Bergen was the correct age range at 51. All-in-all I’m enjoying it, melodrama though it may be. So if you’re interested, you can pretend you’re part of the 80 million who watched it each night in 1983.

      My humble opinion. Foys is trying to be an escape artist and failed, he is still talking about the truth coming out.

      The truth is out. No thanks to the Catholic Church.

      And Foys is playing victim.

      What a shame.

      Most telling point in the letter, Foys claiming victim status for the diocese. In other words โ€œPlease donโ€™t sue us Mr. Wood and Mr. Barnes.โ€

      A short video clip of one activist, Omaha tribe elder Nathan Phillips, playing a traditional drum while face-to-face with a smiling Sandmann, who wore a โ€œMake America Great Againโ€ cap, became the lit fuse on a controversy Bishop Foys said led to an online explosion that damaged the entire diocese.

      No Bishop Foys your illegitimate virtue signaling condemnation of innocent boys who went to DC to protest the slaughter of innocents is what damaged the entire diocese.

      โ€œLast night, Todd McMurtry @FitLwyr and I delivered a preservation of evidence demand to Bishop Foys. This afternoon, he belatedly apologized to Nick by letter. Good first step but more is necessary in order to fully remedy the damage caused by his libelous statements.โ€ Lin added in another tweet: โ€œTruth has a way of always rising to the surface. Sometimes with a push.โ€

      I agree with most of what is said in the comments section. The diocese was so bullied so scared that they piddled on the most innocent in their flock? Give me a break.

      Sorry this was a cover your butt apology.

      Push them hard Mr. Lin push with all your might.

      Ah, so the bishop is the one responsible for the “third party investigation.”

      “Foys wrote he hoped an independent third-party investigation would definitively exonerate the students of the racism and harassment of which they had been accused.”

      My answer would be the same, “No, absolutely NO to one of your investigators speaking with my child.”

      While I don’t have the right to judge the quality/sincerity of anyone’s faith, there is authority to judge actions. Foys, and his other clergy who disparaged and libeled these young people, perhaps should give thought to falling on his knees in front of God and his parish in abject repentance for his actions. Speechifying just doesn’t cut it.

    Attorney for Nick Sandmann: โ€˜Multitude of Civil Lawsuits Will Be Filedโ€™ Over โ€˜False Accusations and Threats โ€˜ Against Covington Catholic Student

    Statement Of Attorneys L. Lin Wood And Todd McMurtry On Behalf Of Nick Sandmann And His Family

    ATLANTA, Jan. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ โ€” On January 18, in the span of a few hours, Nick Sandmannโ€™s peaceful attendance with his Covington Catholic classmates at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. was turned into a personal nightmare when Nick became the focus of false and defamatory accusations published and broadcast across the nation and the world. A mob comprised of activists, church and school officials, members of the mainstream print and broadcast media, and individuals on social media, including elected public officials and celebrities, rushed to condemn and vilify this young man by burying him in an avalanche of false accusations, false portrayals, and cyberbullying that have threatened his reputation and his physical safety. Nick Sandmann is 16 years old. He is an eleventh-grade high school student. He is not the face of evil and he did absolutely nothing wrong or inappropriate in connection with the incident to deserve the heinous accusations made against him by uninformed or agenda-driven individuals and media entities.

    Nick and his family have experienced one of the worst sides of our present society. As their lawyers, we intend to exercise our best efforts as advocates to show Nick and his family another side of our society โ€“ that we are a society that survives and flourishes from the fact that it is based on the rule of law. A system of justice that demands that truth prevail and the wrongdoers be held accountable for the harm they have inflicted on Nick and his family.

    In the coming weeks, we will be carefully reviewing all of the false accusations and threats made against Nick. We fully expect that a multitude of civil lawsuits will be filed and aggressively pursued. We recognize that justice for Nick will not be achieved quickly, but we are dedicated to achieving it for this young man regardless of time or expense.

    At this time, Nick, his family and their lawyers will not be engaging in media interviews. There is work to be done. If any member of the public has information, they believe is helpful to Nick, that information can be communicated to us by email to

    Nick and his family sincerely appreciate the fair-minded individuals who respect our system of justice and refused to rush to judgment before the truth was revealed. Our efforts are not about politics, race or religion. Our efforts are only about justice for Nick.

    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.

    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.

    Just watched the movie, The King’s Speech, for the second time. Colin Firth really did a marvelous job, making the character of the king so very sympathetic. And based on a true story. At the end, they say that Bertie and Lionel remained friends for the rest of their lives, and that Lionel was present for all of the King’s wartime speeches.
