    When I called and they hung up on me I kept calling and complained about their hanging up on me. Finally they listened on speaker phone while I made my polite comments about the judge being ill advised in her decision.

    Stupid libtards.

    I don’t think I can condone shooting the doctors, but almost I can.

    What a brave committed woman. She will not have to be embarrassed when faces The Lord at judgment day. I wish I was as committed as her.

  • IAF commander: Israel first to use F-35 jet in combat

    New equipment always receives bad reviews from people who have never used the equipment in operation.

    I haven’t flown the F-35 but those who have love it.

    During WWII nobody wanted the P-38 when it came out because it was not very maneuverable, but it was VERY fast and had great armor. Properly used it could shoot down the enemy with ease. Top Aces in the Pacific shot down as many as 40 enemy in the Lightening. Later the maneuverability was enhanced but it was never meant to be a dog fighter. It was a quiet plane and could sneak up and strike before the enemy could do anything about it and disappear.

    While the Air Force name for the plane is Lightening II the pilots have named it the Panther. Either name is descriptive of what it can do.

    The F-35 is not meant for dog fighting. It is a stealth plane that can see but can’t be seen. It can get close enough to launch missiles before being detected and get away before the enemy even knows it was there. It can destroy ground radar without being detected, it is a magic plane.

    “Sessions has the chance of going down as a great AG if he take the IG report and runs with it.” __________________________________________________________

    I have not made a decision about Sessions yet.

    There is some advantage in doing investigations on the QT.

    I think that treason is only punishable by death in war time. Treason is punishable by hefty fines and life inprisonment during peace time, they all deserve it. Comey, McCabe, Clapper, Lynch, Muller, Brennan, Hillary and Obummer. There are more but they were following orders and their time in prison should be a little less.

    My hope is that Sessions with his various investigators/prosecutors has put together air-tight cases against all these evil players that would thwart the will of the people who elected the president.

    Trump is an extremely intelligent person, high genius IQ, I doubt that anything gets past him. I have liked Sessions for a long time and have never considered him part of the swamp, I hope he is not. My hope is that the only thing Sessions has to do with the swamp is in draining it.

    Our Mainstream press is actually the 5th column of destruction. I don't know what the answer is to them. We need a free press but fake new is really bad. I think libel laws should not protect fake news.

    No, not really. Rosenstein is an assistant to Sessions and he is the assistant handling the special prosecutor, everyone reports to Sessions for everything except the election investigation.

    Sessions reports to Trump. Everyone acts like Trump is helpless in all this. Trump is not the helpless type, he is in charge and in control you can be assured of that. Trump likely has the highest IQ of any president since Thomas Jefferson, he thinks circles around everybody else.

    Having an investigator/prosecutor from outside Washington was genius. He doesn't have to worry about stepping on toes of his friends because these are people he knows the names of but doesn't really know.

    JAKraig to unlearner

    The founders did not create a coalition government. They specified an electoral college which is allocated as states choose.

    _________________________________________________________

    Your reply is correct but there are many states now trying to subvert the Constitution by having a compact between states to award all their electors to the person who wins the majority of votes in the Union, not the state. They would in the last election have awarded all the electors in their state to Hillary Clinton even if she had not received a single vote in their state. There are those who say it is up to the state to determine how they award those votes in their state but if my state were in the Compact I would sue to say my vote did not count.

    How is Mormonism not 19th Century Scientology?

    ____________________________________________________________

    I was going to keep my mouth shut but sometimes you just can't ignore a silly comment like we should.

    Mormonism is a religion with about the same number of worshipers perhaps a little more than Jewry, 16,000,000.

    I realize that numbers mean nothing, there are 1.2 billion worshipers in the satanic cult of Islam.

    Mormons believe in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost, Mormons believe there is only one name that can save, that of Jesus Christ. Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that God is indeed His Father and that is where they differ from “conventional” or “Catholic” Christianity.

    At the council of Nicaea a doctrine was adopted that said that Christ, God The Father and The Holy Ghost were one God. That Christ was not really the Son of God but that He was Eternal, the same as The Father, and that Christ and God The Father shared the same substance making them literally one God.

    Jews don't believe that Abraham or Jacob or Issac have anything to do with getting them to Heaven. Jews don't worship Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Elijah or Moses but revere them as prophets, literally representatives of God on earth.

    Jews believe in a Messiah they just don't believe that Jesus born of Mary was Him.

    I have never been close to Judaism so can't really say much about it accept to say that Jesus was a Jew and I doubt that Jews will go to Hell for being and following the religion of Judaism.

    Back to Mormons, I personally believe that Mormons are Christian. Certainly they are not main line or catholic (universal) christian because they won't adopt the Nicaean Creed sometimes referred to now as the Apostles Creed but never an Apostle spoke it. But Mormons make it plain what they do believe, this from Wikipedia:

    We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

    We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression.

    We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.

    We believe that these first principles and ordinances of the Gospel 1st, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    We believe that a man must be called of God by “prophecy, and by the laying on of hands” by those who are in authority to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

    We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, viz: namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists and so forth.

    We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues and so forth.

    We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

    We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

    We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon this the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth and that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

    We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

    We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

    #13
    We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul —”We believe all things, we hope all things,” we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praise worthy praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

    After reading these things I realize that Romney cannot be a real Mormon, the last one, number 13, eliminates him. Romney is an opportunist double crossing liar who isn't worthy of tying the shoes of our current president.

  • EMP: An Elaborate Hoax or a Legitimate Threat?

    05/15/2018 11:38:18 AM PDT · 49 of 62
    JAKraig to Chainmail

    An idiot. If the author had spent a few days serving our country, he or she would have known that EMP is real enough.

    _____________________________________________________________

    She never said it wasn’t real, only that nobody really knows how real it could be.

    EMP is fickle, it depends on a lot of environmental conditions to be effective. The fix for protection from potential EMP is not terribly expensive and is a wise thing to do anyway to protect from a large solar flare.

    The major threat of an EMP is supposedly what it would do to our electrical distribution system, the “Grid”.

    If you really are afraid of an EMP go put a bunch of solar cells on your roof and a bunch of batteries in your basement. While that would be expensive to do enough to replace the grid it is not terribly expensive for minimal backup power to keep the frig going and charge your phones.

    I went whole hog with 12KW on the roof because I like my A/C in the summer and my heat pump in the winter. Most people don’t have the understanding it takes to maintain and operate something so large. To some it would seem too complicated, to me it is just fun.

    I don’t think we will ever be subjected to an EMP unless it is in concert with bombs dropping all over the place, it that event EMP will be the least of our worries.

  • The Singularity Is The Pandora’s Box Of Scientism

    JAKraig to Artemis Webb

    I’d rather not read the whole article. It reads like Q but without the bad freeform verse.

    ____________________________________________________________

    Well I did read the entire article. A few interesting points but the most important point in my own opinion was totally missed by the writer.

    While the writer mentions space exploration and what will happen with the vanity of scientest creating AI that will eventually enslave us, perhaps eat us, it does not mention time.

    Time is where so many futurist miss the boat. They speak of godlessness without thinking. For instance: The universe was according to most scientest created with a big bang about 13-1/2 to 14 billion years ago. The sun about 4-1/2 or so billion years ago and the earth perhaps 4 billion years ago. In the last few hundred years the people of earth have progressed from knowing magnetism exists to harnessing it to subdue our world. The vast majority of that understanding and harnessing has happened in the last 50 years. Certainly there were great thinkers prior to 50 years ago and great discoveries but knowledge and understanding are moving faster than at any time in the history of mankind.

    There were other earths that were born and died before ours was even even contemplated, perhaps trillions of them. In 100 years there will be advances in sciences and engineering we can’t even contemplate but I’m really talking about societies that are not 100 years ahead of us, not a thousand or a million but billions of years ahead of us.

    If there was a living being with a billion year head start on us, if we met them we wouldn’t understand them except to believe that they were gods. I would think those societies managed their AI ok and got by, I have no reason to believe that we couldn’t do the same.

    I am not a particularly forward thinking man but I don’t see how philosophy cannot take time into consideration when coming to an opinion that concerns our future.

  • Former C-130 pilot studies plane crash video (#1 engine failure)

    JAKraig to PAR35

    On take off, climb you are at a pretty low airspeed.

    Loss of an engine and torque compensation with rudder further reduces air speed. It looked to me like the left wing simply stalled. Some would ask how only one wing could stall but there are many situations where that can happen. The engine that failed would reduce air flow over the wing on the same side. Once the wing drops at low altitude your done.

    The proper course would have been to stop climb and lower the nose to get speed and then at least you go into the ground wheels down instead of burying the nose. It looked like he may have tried that and then tried to correct course with too much rudder, rudder can really kill airspeed.

  • NY Archdiocese Priest: Jesus Did Not Understand Homosexuality

    JAKraig to Tanniker Smith

    Years ago I heard the definition of a zealot as someone who does what God would do if God had all the facts.

    Jesus didn’t understand homosexuality? And I’m sure someone could explain it to him, or just do what Jesus would do if were Jesus more informed on the matter.

    _________________________________________________________
    There is, obviously no one who understand homosexuality better than the members of the Holy Trinity.

    It seems pretty obvious to me that God had a pretty good understanding of homosexuality back when he took care of the problem in Sodom and Gomorrah. Perhaps we need the same solution again.

    Anyone, priest or Pope who deigns to believe that they know more on any subject than God is an idiot.

    There is nothing of accomplishment reported by the author of this article that could not have happened had the mother carried the baby to full term and given it up for adoption, nothing. It is sickening that this woman is proud of killing the unborn child in her womb for the convenience of not having to go through birth. I will never see women like this as anything but self serving selfish liars who kill to protect their own pleasure.

    Why make a structure to collect the energy from a star when you can make a star that fits in your pocket? Dyson spheres are interesting, but they are also a silly extrapolation.

    ___________________________________________________________

    They are silly indeed.

    With water you can make energy the same way stars do, fusion. Why go through all the construction of a Dyson sphere?

    For us trying to find other civilizations based on the technology we understand is like plains Indians trying to find future civilizations using smoke signals. In the future there may very well be no communications via electromagnetic spectrum, we simply don’t know what will be at hand in a thousand years, we don’t even know enough to speculate.

  • Camille Cosby Calls Bill Cosby’s Guilty Charge “Mob Justice” In Startling Statement

    JAKraig to ClearCase_guy

    Or is it all about her?

    ________________________________________________________

    There are a number of things to consider about all this.

    First is of course, why does it take decades to bring these accusations. I simply refuse to listen to a decades old accusation for a number of reasons, one is that after such a long time nobody remembers exactly what happened. Stories take a life of their own after a while. Second why is it that the Philanderer in Chief has never had to face any charges, because there is no evidence. Third, I could never convict someone if I were on a jury where it was his word against hers. Fourth, I would NEVER believe someone who drank wine and took pills without them being forced allowed something to happen to her that she didn’t expect.

    As for his wife sticking with him, I will get flamed really bad over this but, the sexual standards of the black population are simply different than the white population. Many black people have exactly the same standards as their white neighbors but it you count how many unmarried men have children by more than woman and how many women have children by more than one man I think you will see a stark difference between the two populations. It is simply more acceptable in some societies for men to cheat on their spouses than it is in others.

    Nothing I have said here means I support philandering, on the contrary, I abhor it. We do however have to realize that it is wrong for us to force our morals on others who have their own standards. It isn’t wrong to try to get them to change, only force them to do so.

    I do believe that Cosby was targeted because he strayed from the liberal reservation. Until he strayed he was held in the highest regard.

    God does not hear the prayers of those outside of His covenant, unless it is a prayer responding in faith for repentance.
    _______________________________________________________________
    Salvavida,

    OK, please show me where God says He will not hear those prayers. Saying He will hear the prayers of believers is not saying He will not hear prayers from others.

    I thought He heard mine. I certainly prayed to ask if He was real before I ever thought about repentance.

    My personal experience and what I have read in the Holy Bible tell me you are wrong. The Story of Cornelius is much like my own. Cornelius was not praying for repentance but for guidance.

    I don’t know where you preach or what church you are affiliated with but I would be hard pressed that they would express this doctrine in writing, if so I would be pleased to see it.

    Not really. I understand her point, but she seems to be suggesting that interrogation techniques considered unacceptable in 2018 were OK in September 2001.

    ___________________________________________________________

    This whole argument is silly. We have signed on to an agreement with many other countries that say we will not use torture. That is well and good but it only applies to the countries that signed the agreement. Terrorists who have not signed anything, who use torture and kill innocents purposely have no non-torture agreement with us. To suggest they do is ignorance. To make a law in congress that says we won’t use these techniques against those who would use them on us is traitorous and stupididity of the highest order.

    After World War II the “civilized” countries of the world got together in Geneva and decided what would be fair and not fair in future wars. The Geneva Convention and treaties are for participating COUNTRIES, not non-participating terrorists.

    It is time to get the bamboo under the fingernails of terrorists. Torture the Hell out of them, make them talk and wish they had never been born, then kill them and bury them with a pig. Put the torture and burrying on youtube for the world to see.

    Name one!

    God hears the prayers of all His children regardless of their religious beliefs. God loves us all, He is not a respecter of persons.

    __________________________________________________________

    In the New Testament of the Holy Bible we learn about the ruler of a synagogue. As yet there was no Christian Church, only followers of Jesus and those that did not.

    Mark 5:21
    Matthew 9:18

    Jairus was “the ruler” of a synagogue, today we call them presidents. While Jairus was not a follower of Jesus he had heard of his miracles, and his daughter was very ill, nigh unto death. In fact before Jairus was able to get home with The Savior after making his plea to save his daughter the daughter had died.

    Jairus though not a believer or follower of Jesus approached Him and told Him of his daughters plight.

    On the way to the home of Jairus a woman on the street who was ill saw The Lord and touched Him. She was not a follower of The Savior but had heard of His works. When The Lord felt the touch He stopped and heard her plea and healed her.

    When The Lord arrived at Jairus’ home He raised the daughter of Jairus from the dead. He heard the prayer of the non-believer who now believed.

    The woman on the street who had hope likely became a follower of Jesus but we aren’t told.

    Before even The Savior was born we hear in the Old Testament of the leprous soldier who requested the help of the prophet Elijah in 2nd Kings Chapter 5. The soldier Naaman didn’t know God but had heard through a Jewish servant girl of Elijah and his God and sent for him through the king. Actually the king received the request and Elijah heard about and invited Naaman to see him but Naaman was angered that the prophet wouldn’t come out to see him but simply sent a servant with instructions.

    The Lord heard the request of Naaman and Elijah on his behalf and healed Naaman. I suspect that when Elijah told Naaman there was a God in Israel that after being healed he was a believer.

    I think another good story on the subject is the one of Peter and Cornelius. Cornelius was a believer in God and prayed to God every day. Cornelius was not a Jew. He prayed and God heard his prayer and sent Peter to him to teach him of Jesus and baptize him. When Peter came to the house of the “Gentile” he had to make a decision concerning Jewish cleanliness before entering the house. We are told in this story that God is not a respecter of persons. He doesn’t favor believers over non-believers until judgment day.

    Below are a couple videos worth watching that perhaps give a little insight, more than the words in the Bible give when you see it. These are worth watching to get a glimpse of the love The Savior has for all of us, even those that don’t know Him. The video addresses are not in html so you will have to copy and paste them into your browser, I’m just a little lazy.

    Knowing Jesus is our salvation is wonderful but it does not keep God from hearing the prayers of those who don’t know. There are plenty of examples of non-believers in the Bible who asked and were heard.
