Hope! Joy! Redemption! Easter 2016

resurrection - Copy

But Mary stood at the sepulchre without, weeping. Now as she was weeping, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre.  And she saw two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been laid. They say to her: Woman, why weepest thou? She saith to them: Because they have taken away my Lord; and I know not where they have laid him. When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing; and she knew not that it was Jesus.  Jesus saith to her: Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, thinking it was the gardener, saith to him: Sir, if thou hast taken him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

Jesus saith to her: Mary. She turning, saith to him: Rabboni (which is to say, Master).  Jesus saith to her: Do not touch me, for I am not yet ascended to my Father. But go to my brethren, and say to them: I ascend to my Father and to your Father, to my God and your God. Mary Magdalen cometh, and telleth the disciples: I have seen the Lord, and these things he said to me.

He is risen. We are redeemed.

Let not your heart be troubled; neither let it be afraid.

Happy Easter, everyone.

  1. Happy Easter (early), folks. There’s a conversation going on at an old thread, in case you want to join in and it gets lost on the sidebar:

    • Oh, Media Matters, that neo-Nazi site, has “flagged” that show as bigoted. Gee, I wondered how long it would take the DemoncRATS and progressives to go after our favorite ladies and how, exactly, they’d try to do it. What SCUM those haters are.

  7. Happy Easter to all our friends. We’ve been together now for so long (at least 7 years, if not longer) that y’all feel like family. So I hope that each and every one of you has a wonderful Easter, a beautiful Spring, and a happy Summer. Love you all and thank you for being here. 🙂

    • thanks for being a kind hostess and a pretty decent word smith too Miri, and that goes to the rest of you all too. Miri didn’t trust me at first…I remember …I think I came off as a bit hostile at first too. I’ve learned a lot over these years here , a lot of it thanks to you guys.
      It has been a beautiful spring so far; the same goes to all of you, a happy summer…..it definitely will be an interesting one!

      • No luck yet, sorry.

      • Thanks, alfy. We’ve all grown and changed. It’s hard to get to “know” people without seeing or hearing them. Thanks for being here. Hope you had a happy Easter. Spring has been unusually beautiful this year. I hope it’s a sign. The trees are prettier than I remember in a long time. Came early, but that’s okay by me.

  8. Soros gives John Kasich $700,000 in campaign funds to stay in the race !!!! http://www.dcclothesline.com/2016/03/27/george-soros-gives-john-kasich-700000-to-stay-in-race/

  9. This will be out of context of the stuff we’ve been following, but I’ve got to try again to post a couple photos. Now I’ve made them jpegs (they were once Facebook photos). if they work I have a couple other unusual ones.
    This is grandma of E. Duke and the other one is good ole Ruth N. on a visit to Mauritius where she does an interview about her hubby BHO. Compare (if the photos will work) . I am trying to do this via wordpress. I’ll be back

    Loretta Lynch, via Obama, basically admits that the federal government needs to ensure that states and localities give blacks a “get out of jail free” pass, no matter what they do. That’s in essence, what this is. Promising to lean on and punish states that hold blacks who commit crimes to the SAME STANDARD as other races. No, they need to be given special treatment. Talk about “soft bigotry.” This is going on in my city, too. The local paper writes sob stories about how the cops are racist because they (GASP!) stop blacks for weaving while driving, or running stop signs, or for whatever traffic violation and then (GASP!) when they learn that the poor “innocent” black person has an OUTSTANDING WARRANT FOR HIS OR HER ARREST, the person gets arrested, put in the slammer, and then (GASP!) like everybody else who has the gall to commit crimes, evade arrest, and then be held accountable, has to (GASP!) come up with bail money if he or she wants to get out of jail. THIS is allegedly RACIST because “poor” people can’t afford the fines and the cities are just trying to make money off the backs of the poor. HOWEVER, the obvious flaw in their logic is that no city will be making any money so long as all the citizens, no matter their color, simply OBEY THE LAWS, PAY THEIR FINES, AND/OR SHOW UP IN COURT WHEN TOLD TO, SO THEY DON’T HAVE ANY OUTSTANDING WARRANTS. It’s as if the DOJ and Lynch are saying that blacks can’t control themselves or be responsible, so they have to be ALLOWED to violate laws with NO CONSEQUENCES.

    • And when the Taliban murder innocent Christian CHILDREN and when muslim terrorists CRUCIFY a Catholic priest, Barry sees fit to give yet another lecture to US on islamophobia and inform us that in keeping with our “values” we simply MUST take in more muslims who could very well be terrorists in the making themselves. This rounding up is all just for show. Just for show. No doubt that, like at Sandy Hook, they go in one door and out the other.

    • Oh, yeah. And that shooting at the Capitol? Nothing to see here, folks. MOVE ON. It’s a black man. Pellet gun. A leftist. Nevermind. http://heavy.com/news/2016/03/larry-dawson-us-capitol-visitor-center-shooting-march-2016-suspect-injuries-wounded-facebook-page-tennessee/

      When I heard, before he was identified, that the suspect was someone who’d been tossed out and charged last year for disrupting Congress, I immediately wondered if it was either a BLM protester or our Code Pink friend, Ms. Benjamin. HA!

      Nope. Just some black preacher from TN who sounds like he’s feeling the Bern. His issue is $15 per hour minimum wage. And in a city with the most stringent gun control in the country, how is it he (a well-known nut job) got even a pellet gun into the building?

      Too bad. They won’t be able to use this for their gun control program.

      • What’s so bizarre is that immediately they were talking terror attack and they STILL won’t call Fort Hood a terror attack.

    • They have that wrong don’t they? The child who died was NOT the child of her first or second husband. Another parallel: Growing up, Heidi spent time with her missionary parents in KENYA.

  11. JUST TRUMP UM !!! moving ON>>>> time will TELL ALL!!!
    Cat never stays in the BAG …. UNLESS its BHO? whoever that IS!

    http://www.wnd.com/2016/03/trump-cruz-started-garbage-but-lets-move-on/

  12. I read this essay today on one of those true Republican sites, can’t remember which one, invoking the history of Rome to try to predict what will happen to us.
    Long and short of it, Cruz is the true Roman republic citizen and Trump is the caesar like strongman that people place their trust in when it is apparent to them that the state is already failing. They elect caesars but it is already too late. Rome staggers on and finally dies.
    It’s pretty hard to draw political analogies across thousands of years of times.
    If Trump was the new caesar, what equivalent did rome have in that a million talking heads, news broadcasters, rich men, and perceived ellites would speak as one to denounce the Trump as the new caesar.
    I don’t believe that happened in Rome, but it is happening here, now.
    There is a new strong man, but he is hidden with the utmost care, and
    he moves to destroy Trump like nothing that happened in Rome.

    • That’s the kind of nonsense they have to come up with when they have nothing else to say. Rather ridiculous. Maybe they’re hoping for an Ides of March. Know what I mean? I hope the center holds and Trump triumphs. It will be worth WHATEVER comes after just to see the looks on their faces.

  13. Death of the Mind !!!! Important Health News !!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1bF98_8pUU

    • I wouldn’t take those drugs no matter what. Just eat some fish, exercise, and lose weight, if necessary. That’s far better for you than those drugs which probably exist only to enrich a bunch of already rich folks. The thing is, and this is FACT, high cholesterol is NOT necessarily bad. It’s ONLY bad as an indicator in someone with a predisposition to what used to be called hardening of the arteries. IOW, it’s an association but not a causal agent. A POSSIBLE indicator. There are 90-year-olds with clear arteries and “high cholesterol”. In and of itself, high cholesterol means nothing. It’s only bad IF, with your particular genetic makeup, it furthers the deposition of fats in artery walls. But that’s not a given, even with high cholesterol. Know what I mean? BUT they give the risky drugs, with very concerning side effects, to everyone with even “borderline” cholesterol numbers. Just hope and pray that Obamacare doesn’t eventually turn into what I suspect it WILL turn into: A FASCIST-LIKE program where you’re policed and IF YOU DON’T DO WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERS, then they “PUNISH” you either with fines, higher “taxes”, and/or refusing to pay for your health care. I can see it now. I can envision that even if you fill the prescriptions and pitch the drugs, they’re going to set up a regime where they WILL KNOW whether or not you’re tossing the drugs or TAKING THEM. iow, maybe blood tests to confirm. Seems I even remember hearing about some technology in development that will somehow record that you took a pill and that it went through your system. Maybe a nanotag of some sort. Something like that. I don’t remember the details at the moment but it was just another case of Big Brother on steroids. So now, since they give statins to just about everyone, the new Dr. Death (Rahmbo’s brother) can get ready his program to pull the plug on ALL THE OLD PEOPLE who get dementia courtesy of those drugs. Logan’s Run. Remember that? Coming soon, no doubt.

  14. Tommy pleads, “not guilty” !!!! His Teddy Roosevelt impersonation was just political speech !!!! http://conservativetribune.com/man-rushed-trump-stage/

    • Yes, and if he gets away with that one, then the same policy should go for anybody who disagrees with Barry. Right?
