    ENDGAME : POTUS Trump’s Vindication Nears
    By Rex at QuodVerum

    Leftists have long alleged that Donald Trump has conducted crimes with the mafia, as well as with Russian oligarchs. What they can never explain is why Trump has never been indicted. As REX explains, there may be a reason for that. And in 2019, it’s all connected to POTUS Trump’s masterful takedown of The Swamp.

    (Though I truly admire the thinking of “Rex”, he’s greatly in need of some proofreading skills. LOL!)

    P.S. Thought I’d throw in a photo of The Donald in the 1980s…

      Good morning, Nyet! Great to have you back cookin’ breakfast for us all. FedEx the whole shebang, as traipsing around this ruin and taking a run up the coast will likely bring a huge appetite…


      Photograph of Dunstanburgh Castle by Andrew Whitaker from Embleton Bay at sunrise. The Castle lies on a spectacular headland on the coast of Northumberland, between the villages of Craster and Embleton. It’s the largest in Northumberland and the site shows traces of much earlier occupation before building of the castle was started in 1313 by the Earl of Lancaster…

    I was reading a Pastor this morning and it made me wonder if our society is getting to the point of no return? Are our Churches becoming what we were warned they would become? This was a Baptist Pastor, but it isn’t limited to just the Baptist, it seems to have spread to all denominations.
    He wrote that Christians have to accept that although abortion is murder it is legal murder and there is nothing we can do about it but pray because God commands us to follow man’s law. We can only pray for our children, because we cannot change what they learn in school and learn through their peers, television, music and social media. We must welcome illegal immigrants because they are also God’s children. We must accept that Islam is a religion, love and welcome our Muslim brothers and sisters and embrace them and try to understand their faith. It is just as important to them as our faith is to us.
    There was a lot more this Pastor wrote that had me torn between fury and tears, but these bothered me the most.
    Does he read a different Bible than I do?

    I’m sorry I do not believe God expects us to hide in a closet and say there is nothing we can do God. Yes, we should always pray, but we’re not vegetables.

      There are really good ministers that preach the truth, but many want sermons that tickle their ears, instead of the truth. This preacher will have to answer for leading people astray. I think the prayers need to be that his flock asks him to leave and get a sound preacher.

        If it was just one Pastor or one Church it wouldn’t bother me so bad, but I keep seeing more and more of it.

        I’m starting to think there is something in the water in my state as everyone is going insane. Christians sounding like non-believers, conservatives sounding like liberals and even some liberals who are sounding more sane than the conservatives.

        It started with abortion, it’s like that did something to their minds. A friend said they think it’s cognitive disodence brought on by the abolition movement that was challenging to pro-life and Christians.

        Not sure how that is spreading to illegals, immoral teenagers, Muslims, etc.

        • It’s a legitimate cause for concern for sure. I’ve seen plenty of congregations move from being solidly conservative to more liberal views in Texas, too. I haven’t seen it on abortion issues, but other things. For one thing, people seem to view church as entertainment and that was never what it was intended for. I think it starts there and then as β€œfun” is added and younger people move into roles that older people had held, then the liberal ideas start coming in. It’s a slippery slope.

            That it is and the parents are not teaching their children to respect God’s House. I’m not saying girls must wear dresses and boys wear nice clothes, although that was how I was raised. However, teen girls coming to Church in shorts and skirts up to their rear ends and boys wearing t-shirts with bordering on vulgar words and pictures is very disrespectful. Not to mention all the kids on their phones throughout service.

            Then you compound that with preachers who want to avoid subjects that make people uncomfortable and maybe even themselves. Churches are failing.

              I do not understand parents who let kids do that. My kids got sent back upstairs to change clothes or tuck and neaten and comb hair on a very regular basis.

              However, I also agree with sand. I don’t know about other parts of the country, but around here younger pastors and I assume congregations have torn out beautiful old church altars and furnishings and put in stages and sound systems and big screen tvs. One young man who lamented the destruction of his childhood church posted side by side pictures on Facebook. It was a travesty.

              I won’t say it is the Catholic in me that detests such changes, I will say it is the thinking Christian in me, in light of the Bible and all we know about God. A building lacking an altar, a pulpit, a choir loft or area, something, is not a church. Worship, fine and holy worship might go on, I don’t know, but a church has a focus other thanthe congregation and their entertainment.

              I did not grow up Catholic and in my childhood I was sent to many, many churches, all protestant of course, many Baptist, some Methodist, one Cumberland Presbyterian. Every single one of them had the front of the sanctuary clearly designed and set aside to worship and honor God.

              Not all had altars but everyone had a pulpit, a very large Bible, often candlesticks and linens lovingly maintained. Lots had very beautiful stained glass windows.

              I want to be taken outside myself, lifted up, joining with the Church, the Body of Christ, his believers across the world, in worship and sacrifice to the Father. Churches are very specifically designed to begin that process before the service ever starts.

              I guess this matters to me because I see it as part of the movement to change God and the Bible into something more in line with what society wants them to be, what modern people can “live with” if you will. God is to conform to me, certainly not me to him, their movement seems to be.

              • Unfortunately, I think the attitude many have is, what can the church do for me, instead of what can I do for the church? However…. if all of us here are seeing the problems, then I bet many others are, too. That’s a good thing. Maybe the pendulum will begin to swing back to more conservative churches.

      michelle, there is a remedy that might work. It did for me.
      We had an off-week in Bible study, so one “progressive” older lady asked could we study the koran that day. Me being me, I said if we do that, then we are also going to study the other three books that go with it.

      Mind you, you must be familiar with the koran and specific passages to pull this off successfully, or whatever other subject you wish to challenge.
      This church, being the church in which i was reared, knew me. Knew Dad and me well.
      Dad and I had more than our share of arguments in our church, and rarely, if ever, lost.

      Pastor cancelled the next class, and we had a week off.
      We never did study the koran. Not while i was there, anyway.
      You and that Baptist pastor and his church will be in our prayers.

      Agree with you, Michell, Menagerie and Sand, re the difference between worship and entertainment. What’s happening today in so many churches is disheartening.

      I’ve only been to Catholic funeral Masses but used to watch Mass most days when EWTN was in my cable package. it’s obvious that an attitude of reverence prevails. Parishioners don’t sit discussing where they’re going for lunch or what’s on the news BEFORE the service starts like they do in Protestant or, especially, Evangelical services. This pre-service time should be a moment when people are preparing themselves to worship the God they believe in with their fellow Christians or also perhaps with those who are searching for truth.

      God absolutely does not expect us to sit idly by and let the world go to hell. We are to be His standardbearers. We are to speak the truth in love, but not in a manner as to distort His Word. Once the Word, both written and in Christ Jesus, is not central, you get wishy-washy teachings and PC rhetoric. Then the people start to make up their own gospels and their own imperatives. The result is a “tolerance” for false doctrine about life and its value. Not being firm in dogma also encourages a “broad-mindedness” (actually a wish to not rock the boat) about Koranic/Sunna teachings and a discounting of how those teachings affect adherents who choose active terrorism. This sweetness and light about a very dangerous political religion is ignorance-on-display to the max.

      What God does not do is encourage people to break the law. If the law is certifiably unjust, then that’s another matter and there are ways to remain a moral God follower when dealing with this. But being morally right is not what motivates the illegal alien. He comes to our nation willing to break our laws by not following the rules on how to immigrate. That’s strike #1. Next, he wants benefits or jobs which he does not deserve over those who have followed the laws/rules/regs or are citizens already. That’s strike #2. Finally, he comes to our shores to participate in felony criminal activity. Strike #3.

      The United States has helped people-in-place in their own nations for a very long time. Anyone who says we are not willing to give a hand to those in foreign lands, chooses to lie and not state the facts. There is essentially no good reason to be an illegal immigrant.

      Yesterday I spent about six hours listening to cds of the Old Testament being read (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers–I’m starting at the beginning and plan to go through it all in sequence), and was struck once again at how elaborate every aspect of Israelite worship and life was. It’s been many years since I read those portions of the Bible, as I usually concentrate on the New Testament and the Psalms or Proverbs. I had to laugh in a few places at what mess-ups the people were…until God reminded me that times may change, but people really do not. The Israelites–the people God chose to deliver His message to their eras–drifted away from God numerous times because of apostate actions or teachings, and unholy desires which came to the fore in the peoples minds…and THAT should be a lesson to today’s pastors and preachers. Nothing good comes from NOT being firm in following Our Lord.

          Aside from the familiar stories we glean from the writings of Moses–Adam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, etc.–the dietary, interpersonal relations, religious and governing laws are intricate and, frankly, rather difficult to follow when someone is just reading it out loud. Those portions really need study. I have, however, committed myself to going straight through the entire Old Testament first and then do a detailed study afterwards.

          Prior to my dear mother being afflicted with macular degeneration in one eye (she was already blind in the other eye due to a severe astigmatism) read the entire Bible through yearly for 20 years. A lovely Christian woman.

Five varieties of tomatoes – Tiny Tim, Cuban Yellow grape tomatoes, Orange 1 Belarus, Amish Paste, and Kibits Ukranian (I think these are actually originally from Poland, but who knows for sure.)

    I’ve started several herbs, and have another group to plant. I also have lettuce which I have to start this week, gherkins and radishes. Most of these can be planted in containers, but I have some bed space too, in among the flowers!

        This is the first time I’ve started plants from seed in a very long time. It’s more work but a lot cheaper. I’m learning a lot on YouTube. I have avoided seedling death by sterilizing my potting soil in the microwave! That kills bacteria, insects and fungus which may be present – even in bagged potting medium. Also not over-watering or overfeeding, and providing enough heat and light. I’ve also been using distilled water on the seedlings, since I have chlorinated tap water.

        Just think – you may have a garden some time in the near future!

    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.

    I’m watching the Utrecht tram shooting as it spills out. Utrecht mayor’s office is grudgingly mumbling about it ‘possibly’ being terrorism, spokespersons finally giving the shooter’s name (sounds very Turkish) and admitting it occurred in an area heavily populated by Turk and Moroccan immigrants.

    I’m particularly interested in reports out of Utrecht where someone’s trying to make this look more like ‘domestic violence…seems they say he has had problems with his wife. Sorta like that Ft Hood ‘workplace violence’ thing.

    Is it just me or are they trying to legislate away our religious freedom? For example, Catholic bishops who legitimately enforce Catholic teaching, an increasingly rare occurrence, are bitterly criticized for enforcing the policy of not employing a person who participates in a gay marriage ceremony, or there are the Catholic adoption agencies closed down in certain states, hospitals that will not perform sterilizations and abortions, or even abortion referrals.

    This isn’t just a slippery slope, it is a clear negating of religious freedom.
