The Things Men Do

Good read, appreciate it.

There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences. – P.J. O’Rourke

My fifteen-year-old son came to me a few days back and told me he and his buddies were making plans for a backcountry pack trip this summer. He wanted to know if it would be ok if he went and if maybe I could drive them to the trailhead. I chuckled at the thought and wondered what the hell he was thinking? He doesn’t have a drivers license yet and legally can’t carry a rifle without an adult present but he thinks I am going to hand him a pack and send him on an overnighter ten miles from the nearest road into the Cascades with just a can of pepper spray, a sleeping bag and…

Bill O’Reilly Gets the Last Laugh

Good read and agreed.

So the well known boorish behavior of Bill O’Reilly cost him his job.

At the end of the day, O’Reilly is sitting in the catbird’s seat.

He can choose to kick back and live the good life or start up a new cable channel, at a time of his choosing.

Make it pay per view like his newsletter.

He still has a huge audience who would gladly pay to hear his spin.

And for all the married women who have had affairs and are gloating, shame on you, your conduct would be deemed by many to be worse than O’Reilly’s.

The leftist media is gloating.

But how does this differ from Slick Willy?

In three significant ways.

Bill O’Reilly didn’t rape anyone or force them to have sex.

He made remarks that were deemed to be at the level of sexualharassment.

He was never convicted of a crime like…

Good Friday. Morning devotional, Charles H. Spurgeon.

“All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head.”
— Ps 22:7
Mockery was a great ingredient in our Lord’s woe. Judas mocked Him in the garden; the chief priests and scribes laughed Him to scorn; Herod set Him at nought; the servants and the soldiers jeered at Him, and brutally insulted Him; Pilate and his guards ridiculed His royalty; and on the tree all sorts of horrid jests and hideous taunts were hurled at Him. Ridicule is always hard to bear, but when we are in intense pain it is so heartless, so cruel, that it cuts us to the quick. Imagine the Saviour crucified, racked with anguish far beyond all mortal guess, and then picture that motley multitude, all wagging their heads or thrusting out the lip in bitterest contempt of one poor suffering victim! Surely there must have been something more in the crucified One than they could see, or else such a great and mingled crowd would not unanimously have honoured Him with such contempt. Was it not evil confessing, in the very moment of its greatest apparent triumph, that after all it could do no more than mock at that victorious goodness which was then reigning on the cross? O Jesus, “despised and rejected of men,” how couldst Thou die for men who treated Thee so ill? Herein is love amazing, love divine, yea, love beyond degree. We, too, have despised Thee in the days of our unregeneracy, and even since our new birth we have set the world on high in our hearts, and yet Thou bleedest to heal our wounds, and diest to give us life. O that we could set Thee on a glorious high throne in all men’s hearts! We would ring out Thy praises over land and sea till men should as universally adore as once they did unanimously reject.
Thy creatures wrong Thee, O Thou sovereign Good!
Thou art not loved, because not understood:
This grieves me most, that vain pursuits beguile
Ungrateful men, regardless of Thy smile.

Ps 22

22 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?Why are you so far from saving me,so far from the words of my groaning? 2 O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,by night, and am not silent.
3 Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;you are the praise of Israel. 4 In you our fathers put their trust;they trusted and you delivered them. 5 They cried to you and were saved;in you they trusted and were not disappointed.
6 But I am a worm and not a man,scorned by men and despised by the people. 7 All who see me mock me;they hurl insults, shaking their heads: 8 “He trusts in the Lord;let the Lord rescue him.Let him deliver him,since he delights in him.”
9 Yet you brought me out of the womb;you made me trust in youeven at my mother’s breast. 10 From birth I was cast upon you;from my mother’s womb you have been my God. 11 Do not be far from me,for trouble is nearand there is no one to help.
12 Many bulls surround me;strong bulls of Bashan encircle me. 13 Roaring lions tearing their preyopen their mouths wide against me. 14 I am poured out like water,and all my bones are out of joint.My heart has turned to wax;it has melted away within me. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd,and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;you lay me in the dust of death. 16 Dogs have surrounded me;a band of evil men has encircled me,they have pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I can count all my bones;people stare and gloat over me. 18 They divide my garments among themand cast lots for my clothing.
19 But you, O Lord, be not far off;O my Strength, come quickly to help me. 20 Deliver my life from the sword,my precious life from the power of the dogs. 21 Rescue me from the mouth of the lions;save me from the horns of the wild oxen.
22 I will declare your name to my brothers;in the congregation I will praise you. 23 You who fear the Lord, praise him!All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! 24 For he has not despised or disdainedthe suffering of the afflicted one;he has not hidden his face from himbut has listened to his cry for help.
25 From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;before those who fear you will I fulfill my vows. 26 The poor will eat and be satisfied;they who seek the Lord will praise him — may your hearts live forever! 27 All the ends of the earthwill remember and turn to the Lord,and all the families of the nationswill bow down before him, 28 for dominion belongs to the Lordand he rules over the nations.
29 All the rich of the earth will feast and worship;all who go down to the dust will kneel before him — those who cannot keep themselves alive. 30 Posterity will serve him;future generations will be told about the Lord. 31 They will proclaim his righteousnessto a people yet unborn — for he has done it.
NIV

While driving home this morning from running a few errands I caught a sermon on the “Real Lord’s Prayer”, in John 17 so I thought I’d check it out again.

John 17

17 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:
“Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
6 “I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8 For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name — the name you gave me — so that they may be one as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.
13 “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: 23 I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
NIV

God bless America and you.

What if I fall?

Nice.

Cristian Mihai

fly

“What if I fall?” 
“Oh my darling, what if you fly?”

Do you ever ask yourself if you like the person you are? If you are who you’ve always wanted to be? Do you know who you want to be?

To be honest, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I realized who I really wanted to be. I want to be that guy who tells people they can fly. I want to see the magic they have stored up in their hearts for so long. And I want to make them see it, I want to make them use it. Because, truth be told, falling is just another way to fly.

Are alleged Rockville rapists Unaccompanied Alien Children?

Good question.
“Were the pair (one from Guatemala and the other from El Salvador), who are behind bars in Maryland for dragging a 14-year-old girl into a boys bathroom and raping her considered ‘refugees’ by the Obama Administration that would have been in charge of them if they turned themselves in at the border as part of the flood of ‘children’ that invaded our border for years during the Obama presidency, so-called UACs?”

Refugee Resettlement Watch

That is the question I have about the story you can’t possibly have missed over the last day or two.

Were the pair (one from Guatemala and the other from El Salvador), who are behind bars in Maryland for dragging a 14-year-old girl into a boys bathroom and raping her considered ‘refugees’ by the Obama Administration that would have been in charge of them if they turned themselves in at the border as part of the flood of ‘children’ that invaded our border for years during the Obama presidency, so-called UACs?

Questions abound! Is he older than 18? Did he arrive among the waves of so-called ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children? Was he in the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement or one of its contractors? And, of course, why had he not been deported? Did MoCo, MD sheriff protect him?

Keep an eye out for any news about whether they…

Hawaii: Muslim Brotherhood-backed imam dictating US refugee policy

Good post, thanks.

Refugee Resettlement Watch

… instead of banning the Brotherhood, the U.S. is letting a Brotherhood-backed imam dictate U.S. refugee and visa policy.

(John Guandolo)

The Hawaiian judge (a personal friend of Obama) might have issued the order, but the drive to stop Trump’s travel and refugee admissions pause comes from Egyptian imam Ismail Elshikh.

Egyptian imam Ismail Elshikh is a co-plaintiff in case blocking Trump’s refugee pause.

See our previous two posts on Hawaii,here and here.

This is a must-read story from Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily:

The main plaintiff in the Hawaii case blocking President Trump’s revised temporary travel ban is an imam with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The irony is hard to miss: Trump has talked about declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and now it is a Brotherhood-backed imam who is playing a key role in blocking his executive order on immigration.

Sick to death of the politics of healthcare.

I’m so sick of the politics, hysteria, hypocrisy from the left and the right about this.
The Republicans screwed up by not having something ready to go after bitching about it for all theses years. They said they tried but Harry Reid blocked it all the way and I for one believed them and I’m sure he did. Sure Obama would have never signed anything they did but they should of had something ready to go.

Ted Cruz was my guy but once Mr Trump was the nominee I supported and voted for him. The more I watch and learn about him the more I support him. I truly believe he loves this country and wants what’s best for it and is willing to do what it takes. Anyone with just a little common sense or objectivity could see this. I didn’t like or vote for Obama but when he became the president I was willing to wait and see how he did thinking maybe he wouldn’t be that bad. Boy, was I wrong. Once I saw what he was doing and how he was governing I was not willing any more to give him the benefit of the doubt. The damage that man did to this country will take years to fix and it appears he’s still working on it behind the scenes but that’s another story. Eventually we will get things cleaned up. Nonetheless we made it through and we did it right and we voted to make a change. Now we have to do the same thing again. That’s how it works folks and it doesn’t happen overnight.

President Trump has always said he wanted it to be a smooth transition of Healthcare. So doing it in stages like they are talking about makes sense. I believe the CBO does have it wrong. They got it wrong on Obama care, why would they all of a sudden get it right now. The dems forced this crap on us, didn’t even try to work with anyone on it and to say they lied about would be a understatement. Pelosi,(“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it”) and Schumer are a joke and just like the rest of left their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Pelosi’s ObamaCare tweet gets unintended response

Bill O’Reilly | How the ObamaCare brawl affects you

BREAKING TONIGHT 3/14/17 Speaker Ryan: This is the replacement bill we all ran on

THE O’REILLY FACTOR 3/14/17 The continued debate over replacing ObamaCare

I don’t know, go figure. I do know this stuff is crazy and there is no way you’re going to get the straight story from the “Lamestream Media”. Hopefully after President Trump gets things done and he continues to keep his promises like none of the other politicians have done and “Make America Great Again” we can get back to the way things are supposed to be and the government will get out of our business and just do what they are hired to do.

Let’s give it and the President a chance, it hasn’t even been 60 days yet. Get a grip people.

God bless America and you.

Maxine Waters Implicates Barack Obama in the Spying Scandal

No doubt.
“Maxine Waters is the gift that keeps on giving. At the same time, Waters once again reminds of just how confident Progressives are that neither they or Barack Obama will be brought up on charges of treason resulting from their conspiring against the Republic and a sitting president.”

This is crap. This needs to stop. VA waste.

This is ridiculous and shameful. With all the money this country wastes in the government, on welfare abuse, immigration, left leaning policies, refugees, the UN, this should not be. This should be one of the most smooth running organizations we have, we owe it to the Veterans. This makes me sick.

From the famed Sharyl Attkisson. Thank you. “A medical doctor-turned-whistleblower was part of a team that reviewed veterans’ medical files to see if they’re entitled to compensation for Agent Orange injuries. He says he caught reviewers pushing through files at an improbable rate, failing to give them a proper review and often denying vets their due. The company, a V.A. contractor, denies it.” Continue reading
