As it goes, a car had a bumper sticker on it. It read, “Pray for Biden – Psalm 109:8”
Cracking open the good book, it reads, “Let his days be few and brief; And let others step forward and replace him.”
If you’re looking for a text for a sermon or for a scripture to use in prayer, it’s a great place to start. Let’s go Brandon.
There is a lot of finger-pointing in regarding the war, but the human tragedy goes on, as it usually does in war. The more granular you get, the more tragic it becomes.
Context: During WW2, the German army laid siege to Leningrad. the 900-day siege of Leningrad, left an estimated 900,000 civilians dead.
Leningrad blockade survivor Marharita Morozova, 87, has lived for the last six decades in the northeastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, the country’s second-largest, which has seen heavy bombardment throughout the war.
“I could never imagine that a new war would start in my old age,” she told Reuters in a video interview on March 20. “In my worst nightmare, I could not even imagine that such massacres would be repeated.”
Born in Leningrad in April 1941, Lyudmila Vasilyeva was about 5 months old when the siege began. More than 80 years later, she has been detained by police for protesting against the war three times since it was launched, the first time on February 25.
“When they detained me, they asked for my passport, and I said: ‘Look at when and where I was born.’ They took a look and got a little anxious. Later, they drove me home in their own car and even came inside for a visit. The next day, they told me that I had never been detained and that they just offered me a ride home. As if nothing had happened.”
Vasilyeva was detained again on February 27, along with her adult grandson and granddaughter. When police again offered to release her, she insisted that she wouldn’t leave without her grandchildren. Eventually, her granddaughter – who has since left Russia, like tens of thousands of mostly younger people aghast at the war in Ukraine and worried about the future as the Kremlin steps up its clampdown on dissent and the economy is hit by sanctions over the invasion — was allowed to go home with her.
Note: Russians need to have internal passports (their papers) and carry them at all times. Travel is restricted in many cases and special permits and stamps must be obtained.
A lot of the Russian and Ukrainian refugees who are being smuggled across the US/Mexico border are being handled by the Armenian Mafia, which pays the cartels for passage rights. Don’t ask me how I know this or for names of the Armenian snakeheads but I know.
Idaho’s new abortion law bans abortion after six weeks and allows families to sue abortion providers.
Texas passed a similar law last year, but that law “allows the public to sue anyone who performs or facilitates an abortion.”
The Arizona House passed a law banning abortions after 15 weeks. Gov. Doug Ducey will likely sign it into law.
The law states: “Except in a medical emergency, a physician may not perform, induce or attempt to perform or induce an abortion unless the physician or the referring physician has first made a determination of the probable gestation age of the unborn human being…”
“Except in a medical emergency, a physician may not intentionally or knowingly perform, induce or attempt to perform or induce an abortion if the probable gestational age of the unborn human being has been determined to be greater than fifteen weeks.”
Why must lawmakers make everything so long-winded? The law does not exempt rape and incest cases.
Doctors can face felony charges and risk losing their medical licenses, and prosecutors cannot go after the women for receiving an abortion.
There are people who visit this blog who are on both sides of the issue. Is a baby a human being? The law is all over on that. If you kill a pregnant woman, you’re tried for double-homicide so in. that case they are. If a mother wants an abortion, they are not. A baby has unique DNA, unique fingerprints, etc.
These new laws don’t end the endless debate. Much matter falls down along religious lines. Pres. Bradon, a devout Catholic, favors on-demand abortion at any time. But then again, he usually can’t tell you what day it is. Offer him an ice cream cone and he’ll change his mind.
Dispatch from Ukraine
A Russian 122mm howitzer battery was located in the Kherson region. It consisted of eight howitzers. The drone facilitated artillery strikes that destroyed them all.
The Ukrainian military struck the Msta-S / B and Hyacinth-C howitzers of the Russian Federation in the same region a few days previously.
Putin projected an end to the war within a week and no Russian casualties. Oops.
