You remind me to post the translation to today's Latin phrase as it is most topical to your comment.

"If you are wise, you should be a bee."

Frustrated with what he calls Democratic obstruction, President Trump is expected to press Senate Republicans during a lunch Tuesday to change the rules to speed up consideration of his nominees for vacant court seats and executive posts.

Good - I hope they listen to him! The worst approval rate of nominees in history.

I wasn't clear in my last comment that the Sundance post contains a long text thread between Warner and Waldman, and not just the few texts that we've discussed before. Very interesting what these schemers were up to re: Steele, Derepaska, Dan Jones, Manafort, etc.

Data from millions of Facebook users who used a popular personality app, including their answers to intimate questionnaires, was left exposed online for anyone to access, a New Scientist investigation has found.

I think it's not a contradiction to assert the following:

1. There's no point in getting into discussions of strongly held differing religious beliefs (or assertions about others' beliefs), since they are incompatible and won't be resolved.

2. If such discussions occur anyway, no one should take offense, since it's not personal, and the fact of differing beliefs is a given.

3. Characterizing others' beliefs is getting into dangerous territory, since if you aren't of that faith it's likely you are not knowledgeable enough to know all the nuances of it.

To take an example, I don't even like making assertions about Islam based on texts of the Koran, since I don't know how they're interpreted. I prefer to stick to the bad behavior of many Muslims, which is factual. Just like people can quote the Old Testament on things like stoning Sabbath violators to criticize Judaism, not realizing that it was essentially never the practice, and rabbinic law has done away it for thousands of years.

Two Colleagues Contradict Brennan's Denial of Reliance on Dossier | RealClearInvestigations

A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok.

“Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the

Mark Warner: Trump Aides’ Contacts With Russians Could Be ‘Coincidences,’ Not Collusion

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

The essence of Christianity, shared by both Catholics and Protestants is that the Trinity consists of one God in three distinct, co equal, but never separate personalities.
Paul warned that the one thing a Christian must not be fooled by is those who come preaching another Jesus.
Mormonism teaches that Christ is a finite created being, inferior to God the Father. It also teaches, in a theology seldom spoken of publicly many other doctrines intensely incompatible with biblical Christianity.

If one is a Christian then you either take Christ's admonition that He is the way, the truth and the life and that there is no other way to salvation than through Him seriously or you don't.
If you don't then I'm not sure what it is you believe.
If you do then you have a duty to tell the truth as your God instructs it to be. There is no part of loving your neighbor as yourself in denying what you believe to be the truth.
How is quoting just a few of the words of actual Mormon doctrine bigotry or bashing?
Either there is the The Truth consisting of the Christian God who inspired the bible and revealed Himself in it or there isn't.
The question is, as Pilate asked, what is truth?
Jesus answered when He said He is not a truth but The Truth.
If you disagree with that then you have take it up with Him, which is what every Christian believes is the fundamental encounter man faces in this life.

They also have a huge needlepoint and cross stitch collection.

But Mrs. Buckeye is closing in on them fast.

The lack of remaining storage space in my house and money in our "discretionary" accounts attest to this.

She had a close relationship with an archivist at the National History museum when we lived in Maryland. She spent many Saturdays there going through their storage bins.

My revolutionary fervor is the most basic Christian tenet stated in about the most fervorless way possible. And it's one my lady believes in at least as strongly as I do.

There are Jewish people here, agnostics and atheists and even a Buddhist now and again. I'm not offended by their beliefs which deny in every aspect the tenets of my faith.

Not sure how to square the universal ridicule here of progs seeking safe spaces where they don't have to hear stuff they don't agree with and the current discussion.

Hillary On The Difference Between Bernie And Trump Supporters — ‘At Least White Supremacists Shaved’

Jacobin Mag reports:

“In the public’s mind, Clinton’s ‘deplorables’ quip is remembered as evidence of her disdain for much of Trump’s fan base. But there was one other group Clinton had a similar dislike of: Bernie Sanders supporters. As one person who had talked to Clinton about the difference between Trump and Sanders crowds recounted, her feeling was that ‘at least white supremacists shaved.'”

Devin Nunes Says Trump Campaign Might Have Been Set Up, Predicts Embarrassing Outcome For FBI And DOJ

Nunes said Glenn Simpson, the head of Fusion GPS, told Congress he was being truthful about a mole within the Trump campaign and predicted the fallout would tarnish the FBI and DOJ.

“Glenn Simpson said that in what was closed testimony. Then it became public. Now he’s confirmed that he was telling Congress the truth, which is probably a good idea,” Nunes continued. “We believe he was telling the truth. And what we’re trying to do is get the documents to figure out — did they actually have, what methods were used to open this counter intelligence investigation?”

“I think what it really means, I think it will look badly on the Department of Justice and the FBI on how they conducted this investigation,” Nunes said.

He also said the entire investigation into President Donald Trump lacked credibility from the start.

“I think if the campaign was somehow set up, I think that would be a problem. Right? If they were somehow meetings that occurred and all of this was a setup,” Nunes said. “Because we have yet to see any credible evidence or intelligence that led to the opening of this investigation.”

I went out anad shouted my thanks to them and they waved and said "You're welcome!" I think probably a lot of people don't thank them, but they deserve it! Hot and back-breaking work!

While I was outside I watered my roses anad the plants on the porch. It is already really hot here. Yesterday it got up to 90.

My son has gone for an interview with the regional manager for a restaurant chain. Please keep your fingers crossed, as it would be a full-time job with benefits and a career path!

Momto2,

Someone in the Horde pointed out that the Pali leadership keeps the underlings in such wretched hopelessness that they become willing fodder for such self destructive behavior. Unfortunately and contrary to official words by ME countries, they are so universally despised in the region that any comprehensive plan for lasting stability puts them at the bottom of the list.

I don't really care what someone's religion is. If you believe in the existence of God you are fine by me. If you think handling poisonous snakes brings you closer to God, then just make sure you don't get bit. One thing everyone who believes in God also believes in is the existence of Satan. I'm inclined to believe most of the problems we are currently facing in the US are the direct results of forces of evil successfully increasing their power, wealth and negative influence on society. Whatever differences all the various religions have pales in comparison to the differences we have with those who completely reject a spiritual value system that promotes positive character traits and harmony with others.

In that thread I linked above, Galactic Red Pill is of the opinion that this isn't just about left or right, but about people who actively intended to destroy this country.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised to find out they had drawn up plans for dividing the nation into regions, each ruled by one of their big shots. I also wouldn't be surprised to find out that they had plans for interning people in camps.

I think that a lot of these folks are not simply Marxists, but are on the order of Pol Pot. They have wormed into every area of our culture and inserted their poisonous thinking.

It makes me wonder if Trump caught wind of this several years ago and has been planning how to proceed.

Also, I note that Galactic Red Pill also thinks British intelligence was involved (assuming that Hillary would win) and that is an additional problem President Trump faces.

jim_nj What I said is TRUE. Not opining on he religion - just explaining why Mormons are not considered Christians. Quoting from IG's post at 12:47 this morning which comes from THE MORMON WEBSITE

From the Mormon website;
We believe in God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. We believe that They are separate beings but share the same purpose. We believe that we are all God’s spirit children. The purpose and desire of each member of the Godhead is to follow the Father’s plan in helping us all become like Them and enjoy eternal life. We worship Jesus Christ as our Savior and Redeemer. Like us, Jesus was created in the image of God, the Father, and They both have perfected bodies of flesh and bone. We believe that the Holy Ghost is sent to witness of the Father and the Son, comforts and teaches us in times of need, and helps us distinguish between right and wrong.

The doctrine that the Godhead consists of three separate beings is contrary to Christian doctrine and denies the Trinity.
The doctrine that Jesus is a separate being created, like us, by the Father is anathema to orthodox Christianity.
The doctrine that the Father has a perfected body of flesh and bone has no support in scripture.
There are many other examples.
The plain words of the Mormon faith are not slanderous nor mischaracterizations.

I did not comment positively or negatively on the Mormon religion itself.

I think that a lot of these folks are not simply Marxists, but are on the order of Pol Pot. They have wormed into every area of our culture and inserted their poisonous thinking.

An undercover FBI agent infiltrated Bill Ayers Weather Underground organization back in the late 60s. There is a video of him on Youtube where he discusses what they talked about in their internal meetings. When discussing what all they would need to do to consolidate power after successfully overthrowing the US government, they casually estimated they would need to execute 25 million patriotic citizens to eliminate any resistance. The Bill Ayers types have infested college universities for a few decades now and have completely destroyed the value system of multiple generations.

When discussing what all they would need to do to consolidate power after successfully overthrowing the US government, they casually estimated they would need to execute 25 million patriotic citizens to eliminate any resistance.

What's terrifying is that we're at least 80% of the way to the kind of country they want, and they got there without having to have their revolution at all.

Had Zero and his crew not been so impatient, had they taken things more slowly, and presented a more conciliatory face, and exerted a little discipline on their rabble, they might have gotten everything they wanted.

But instead they hit the gas pedal on fundamental transformation, and in doing so, made their intentions crystal clear, and they gave the rest of us a chance to fight back before it was too late.
