    Sigh…I can remember working steam locomotives from when I was a kid. They were impressive.

    In response to CTH…

    Quite RIGHT… Mifsud is NOT a US Intelligence asset…..
    Professor Mifsud is UK Intelligence agent… hiding out in Rome… to keep him from Media…and to some extent keep him away from Barr and Durham. But they are on to him and have interviewed him in Rome.

      Mifsud’s got more connections than a NYC commuter line. One wonders if he’s an asset or just an ass-ette that’s been swept up into something that’s bigger than he is and is going to, at some point, become ‘unfindable’?

      He can’t disappear unless someone(s) want him to disappear in which case he’d probably join other historical items on the floor of the Mediterranean. He’s out of US reach and I don’t expect to see Barr or Durham being able to ask him anything.

      Mifsud – “The Matlese Professor”

      Reminds me of an old joke…….
      (you have to know that there is a thing called a Maltese cross)

      Q: How do make a Maltese cross?

      A: Step on his foot.

        Well.. not news to me but relevant now because apparently WaPo and NYT are currently, ahead of OIG report release, DENYING that Misfud is a US Intelligence asset… something that was never claimed in the first place.
        The swamp defenders REQUIRE Misfud to be a RUSSIAN AGENT who infiltrated the Trump campaign. Denying he is a US agent (employed by CIA), is deflecting from the fact that he was UK (MI6)… used by the plotters back in USA.

    It’s noted that 1 Thessalonians 5:18 doesn’t say to give thanks FOR everything, but IN the midst of everything continue to praise and thank God.

    So, my fellow travelers, during difficulties–whatever they might be–find those places where you can still give thanks. Thus, in a way, we then participate in our own healings by being faithful to God’s command.

    There are days when the sheer bloody number of challenges can get to a person. But I’ve found that stopping to listen to a great song of praise, or to read an uplifting quote, Bible verse or article is just the ticket to get me back on the praise road.

    Keep traveling!

    Morning everyone. Made it past hump day, but today is a busy one for me. Hope your Advent is going well, and that you are finding some peace and joy amidst the chaos.

    Even when my life was at its most demanding, and I was working, had three young kids and a husband who worked long hours, leaving most of the kid and house stuff to me out of necessity, I never thought it was too busy to savor the season, to rob out every bit of hope and joy.

    People who say it is too commercialized, that is a major cop out. It is what WE make it. I control my heart, my mind, my home.

    Now, granted, for some danged reason I am not so great at that concept 365 days a year, but, by golly, I think I mostly do good during Advent.

    Happy Thursday people. Back later.

    Oh, and I told you all about how excited I was to make cookies with the two year old (going on forty) grandson. It was a great time, we both loved every minute of it, and the little guy was quite good at it. He called them ginger men and kitmas trees. Next morning he got up and I said “Let’s go fix breakfast.” He suggested we fix more cookies. 😀

    His dad always says “If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.” I think the little guy has that one figured out.

      Cooking with the grandkids is always fun even when I want to pull my hair out. It wasn’t so hard when it was just my grandson, but now my granddaughter wants to help as well. That means two who are wanting to put seasoning in, wanting to stir, crack eggs, etc. Of course neither wants to take turns and neither wants to wait for Nanny to tell them what goes in now. Then the kitchen always ends up in a mess, when their fighting over the sugar, flour, salt, etc. ends up everywhere.

      Sometimes I loose my cool, but for the most part I just enjoy it as they’re growing up too fast and being grandparent you know this time will be gone far too soon.

      Agree 100% !

      I think I’m not decorating this year, just the manger scene and a star in my window. Not out of a bah-hum-bug spirit but simply out of a spirit of simplicity.

      Yeah, saw her little speech trying to pull a thin blanket of national concern over her coup attempt. Great timing, the propaganda push by the MSM thru the holiday season guarantees irritation aimed at Trump better than any other time of the year and will give them the ability to push the conviction vote, which shouldn’t pass, to where it will still be fresh during the fall elections.

        This stuff though isn’t resonating with anyone but their base.

        I read someone on FB who said they believe she knows it won’t go anywhere and she knows it will cost them the majority, but it gives her more power over her caucus. That when they lose the majority she who has no fear of losing an election can then blame the pesky crazies in her caucus and then will be able to control them. Along with being in the minority gives them more to whine about and also gets more of their wealthy base to give them more money. They also say she hates Schiff and this is a way to also make him pay.

        I don’t know how much truth there is to it, but it makes some sense as crazy Nancy is all about herself.

          This is the Coup Crew’s problem, nothing is behind them other than their lunatic base, the fringe whack-a-doodles.

          The law is not behind them, it is their enemy and I would not be surprised to see Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler all removed from office.

          Such vile people.

            I was at an auction in Kansas Saturday. I overheard a conversation between a man and a woman. (I was actually being nosy when I heard the woman raise her voice. haha)
            The short version was how outraged both of them were. The woman who looked to be in her mid 40’s said she had been a democrat since she was 18, but that Trump was the first person ever running for public office that said what she thought. The man who looked to be in his late 60’s/early 70’s said he had apologized to his children for his part in what has became to this country because he had never voted and hadn’t even been registered to vote in years until 2016. They both said what most of think and say, if the democrats can do this to a President, his lawyer and a congressman, then what the hell do they have planned for citizens who disagree with them.

              Definitely is going to be movement against the coup crew and some of them are going to fall. Once they are infighting, really fighting for their lives and freedom, they will make the Sentinelese actions toward visitors seem friendly.

    Don’t know how many of you saw this but I didn’t until a frendsent it to me.

    I’ve been trying to getb a report from DHS for two years on the number of incidents of US military/LEA personnel running into Mexican police/military inside of the US and how many gunbattles have been reported between US military/LEA on the border. So far not even our Republican Senators or Rep have been able/willing to do so. Yes, I’ve even written the White House.

    Just last month we had the Mexican army go into Culiacan, Sinaloa state in Mexico to arrest el Chapo’s sons who now run the cartel. The army did arrest them but the cartel counterattacked, kicked the Mexican army’s butt and forced the government to release both sons. That’s how powerful they are. This latest battle is just 40 miles south or Eagle Pass, Texas where, if you’ve worked/followed the border, the BP has had a major base for decades.

    There are those who’re convinced that the Sinaloa cartel, who controls the Mexican state of Sonora, is looking to set up a US base in New Mexico. There are those who believe that the cartel, which has grown markedly in the last few years, already set up a base and is just enlarging it. Either way the cartel violence is inching closer and closer to the US and is creeping closer to taking over the country of Mexico.

    For one of the best open-source reports on what’s going on at our southern border, especially with the ranchers/farmers (a topic I’ve been ‘on’ about for many years) look at:

    It’s by the state Ag agency, a response to decades of complaints ignored by the Feds, but is still really eye opening. You won’t see anything out there by the USDA – which is politically driven – but the Texas state department is doing it as it’s farmer/rancher driven.

    The issue is immense and is a direct and immediate threat to our country but it’s being heavily ignored while what gets out thru the MSM is heavily massaged.
