    Seen on Facebook, in a discussion about the Roger Stone arrest:

    interesting parallel, the podestas came to my office in Century City and offered to put Bill Clinton on my board of directors, when i politiely declined the FBI raided my office too.

    seems to me that comey and mueller are just hitmen for the clintons and the irish mob, same as the old irish mob of new york.

    time to vanquish the irish mob from the legal system entirely.

    In case you haven’t seen this, it’s a sweet and really interesting story.

    A missing 3-year-old boy who was found alive after enduring two days of heavy rain and freezing temperatures says it was a bear who kept him safe and warm.

    Authorities from the FBI and U.S. Marines professional search teams joined up with volunteers to search for Casey Hathaway when he vanished from outside his grandmother’s house in North Carolina on Tuesday afternoon.

    As his distressed family waited for updates, one of their neighbors out walking her dog heard a loud cry come from the bushes. About 40 yards from the road, Casey was found crying and tangled in thorn bushes.

    He was rushed to the hospital in surprisingly good condition, where he later told his family that it was a bear who had kept him safe for the past two days, according to a GoFundMe page set up by the toddler’s grandmother at β€œthe public’s request.”

    β€œHe told us that his best friend the bear was with him to help keep him safe,” the page says. β€œThanks to God’s mercy he came home to us alive and well.”

      Wow. I believe he is telling the truth. I just wonder if the “bear” was a big dog. I have heard many times of dogs finding and staying with a child in the woods. A child that young would not know the difference. Whatever, I am certain it was sent by God to save him.

        I think he’s telling the truth too. How else did he survive in rain and cold temps for two days and come out in good condition? Animals often recognize the babies of other species and will protect them. You see it happen with cats and baby birds, dogs and kittens etc.

          I’ve told the story before about one of our beloved Goldens, Sam. His pal the cat, Brandy, died and left five kittens. He raised them. Seriously, the dog behaved like a mama dog. He would lay on his side with kittens gathered to him for warmth. We all fed the little furballs.

          Ultimately he played with them like pups, and he taught them to swim. He would dive off the board and five kittens followed him off. When it was time to get out he would put his nose under them and toss them out.

          Sam thought he was a mama, and five kittens thought they were puppies. That is kinda par for the course in our family, we ain’t ever been normal.

    If this is true, it will be amazing and the most important scientific accomplishment ever! I believe Israel has become the center for scientific advances in the world.

    A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer.

    β€œWe believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets.
    β€œOur cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor said. β€œOur solution will be both generic and personal.”

    It sounds fantastical, especially considering that an estimated 18.1 million new cancer cases are diagnosed worldwide each year, according to reports by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Further, every sixth death in the world is due to cancer, making it the second leading cause of death (second only to cardiovascular disease).

    Aridor, chairman of the board of AEBi and CEO Dr. Ilan Morad, say their treatment, which they call MuTaTo (multi-target toxin) is essentially on the scale of a cancer antibiotic – a disruption technology of the highest order.

    The potentially game-changing anti-cancer drug is based on SoAP technology, which belongs to the phage display group of technologies. It involves the introduction of DNA coding for a protein, such as an antibody, into a bacteriophage – a virus that infects bacteria. That protein is then displayed on the surface of the phage. Researchers can use these protein-displaying phages to screen for interactions with other proteins, DNA sequences and small molecules.

    In 2018, a team of scientists won the Nobel Prize for their work on phage display in the directed evolution of new proteins – in particular, for the production of antibody therapeutics.

    Perhaps too late for this query, but here goes anyway.
    Listening to Bloomberg clips tonight, Bloomberg Editor-in-Chief Emeritus Matt Winkler rated the U.S. economy for the last 7 presidents. Pres Trump came in second to last, with GW Bush rated last. Clinton was #1, Obama was #2. Janet Yellen was roundly praised as the best Fed chair ever.

    Is it me that is stupid? Has my entire memory and perceptions been altered? Those three jobs I had to work simultaneously during the Clinton years was just a bad dream? smh

    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.

    And, please, Lord, we pray that everything will go well for Col. Ken now that a liver is available.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
