Animal Funnies!

Those who have pets know that our companion creatures are individuals, each with their own distinct personalities.

A cat in Istanbul, Turkey, calmly squats right in front of a busy escalator outside a subway station in Taksim Square, forcing humans to gingerly step aside from Her Royal Felineness.

A dachshund named Crusoe figured out how he can get his dinner BEFORE the scheduled 5 p.m. — by moving the wall clock’s hour hand to 5!

Sunday Devotional: ‘All authority in Heaven and Earth’

Mark 1:21-26, 29-34

Then they came to Capernaum,
and on the sabbath Jesus entered the synagogue and taught.
The people were astonished at his teaching,
for he taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes.
In their synagogue was a man with an unclean spirit;
he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have you come to destroy us?
I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”
Jesus rebuked him and said,
“Quiet! Come out of him!”
The unclean spirit convulsed him and with a loud cry came out of him.

On leaving the synagogue
Jesus entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.
Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever.
They immediately told him about her.
He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up.
Then the fever left her and she waited on them.

When it was evening, after sunset,
they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons.
The whole town was gathered at the door.
He cured many who were sick with various diseases,
and he drove out many demons,
not permitting them to speak because they knew him.

I don’t know why, over the ages, there had accrued an image of our Lord as an effete, meek, wimpy guy with long hair and sandals, like a 1960s hippie.

But the above passage from Mark 1 and other accounts in the New Testament make clear Jesus is anything but mild and effeminate. On the contrary:

  • He spoke with authority, more learned than the scribes and rabbis.
  • He transformed water into wine.
  • He walked on water.
  • He instantaneously cured the sick, the lame, and the blind.
  • Demons recognize and obey Him.
  • He silenced demons with a one-word command: “Quiet!”
  • He drove out demons with four-words: “Come out of him!”
  • He even raised the dead.
  • And He told us: “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” –Matthew 10:34.

Today, more than two thousands years after, just invoking His name repels demons.

Because He has “all authority in Heaven and Earth“.

Just ponder those six words . . . .

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Dog visits owner’s grave every day

This is Caesar, a little dog whose owner, a 79-year-old man in Turkey, was paralyzed.

Caesar

When his owner passed away, Caesar mourned at his funeral.

The owner’s son, Ali, adopted Caesar.

Ali noticed that every morning, Caesar would leave the house.

So Ali decided to follow the little dog to find out where he goes . . . .

Too-stupid-to-understand-FISA-memo Americans inundate Rep. Adam Schiff & Sen. Feinstein with ‘I’m not a Russian bot’ phone calls

Update: Full FISA Memo released!!!

Our elected politicians just don’t get it: They are not our overlords — they work for us.

Remember Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), 57, who said the House Intelligence Committee (on which he is a ranking member) should not release the FISA memo to the public because the American people simply can’t understand it?

Adam Schiff

The now-infamous 4-page FISA memo is described as so “shocking” and “explosive”, it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the NSA, FBI and DOJ, the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation, and even people going to jail.

See “Tell Congress to release the ‘explosive’ FISA memo that’ll put officials in jail!

But Schiff dismisses the FISA memo as a set of “distorted” “talking points” drafted by Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee. He also invoked the Democrats’ favorite boogeyman — the Russians — accusing his Republican colleagues on the committee of colluding with “Russian trolls and bots”.

When news went viral — of the FISA memo and Schiff’s characterization of the American people as too stupid to understand it — there was a popular outcry to #ReleaseTheMemo.

Still thinking the American people to be stupid, Democrats dug in with their Russian boogeyman meme, accusing the #ReleaseTheMemo social-media campaign of being Kremlin-orchestrated social media actors or LARPers pretending to be Americans.

On Tuesday, January 23, Schiff and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) actually sent a letter (see below) to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, demanding a forensic examination into the #ReleaseTheMemo campaign being the work of “Russian bots” or fake Americans.

Schiff-Feinstein letter on Russian bots

News of the Schiff-Feinstein letter unleashed a tsunami of phone calls to their respective offices, from American citizens confirming they are not Russian bots. One Twitter user said Schiff’s office is now hanging up on American citizens calling to say they’re not Russian bots. LOL

Here’s a sample of tweets from Americans who called:

“Adam Schiff’s office is now hanging up on citizens calling to say they are not Russian Bots.”

” I called Schiff’s office and actually got a live person, he wasn’t too happy with my message and hung up🤣😂🤣

“A very rude young man in Adam Schiff’s office just hung up on me. After he talked over me and wouldn’t even let me finish a sentence.”

“Schiff’s office not accepting voicemail. I’m an EXDemocrat – NOT a BOT!”

“My husband just got through to Schiff’s office. Told them ‘Censorship is Communism!’ That he was an American Citizen and didn’t eat Borscht and drink Vodka! We the People Want the Memo! Schiff is a Mental case and should resign!”

Call Schiff and Feinstein and tell them you’re not a Russian bot!

  • Adam Schiff: (202) 225-4176
  • Diane Feinstein: (415) 393-0707

By the way, Rep. Schiff said we won’t be able to understand the FISA memo because we don’t have the memo’s classified background information. But we do have that information — the 99-page United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Memorandum Opinion and Order, dated April 26, 2017, which is a blueprint of how the Obama administration and the Deep State illegally spied on President Trump, as well as on U.S. citizens.
