The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Keep your lives free form the LOVE of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
So much corruption, so little time. While the establishmedia was busy destroying Candidates over a fluff and pauses, they ignore a report that the White House was asking Solyndra to delay massive layoffs until after the 2010 elections. This speaks to the growing power of the new media as we all know old media would have spiked the story in a nanosecond. PravdABDNC are so concerned in picking the weakest Repub nominee they have no time to report a story that would sink any President for blatant politics with a company they were heavily connected.
The key to American corruption is the necessity to create a crisis and then funnel the graft to your favorite political ally in return for election kickbacks. When obozo came in there was two energy crises wrapped around each other. The first was the Global Warming Crisis in which he claimed he would save the earth and lower the seas. They planned on using the GW hoax as a method to deepen the energy crisis and drive the cost of energy up through the killing of carbon based energy. This is one of their oldest tactics of inventing a manmade crisis that can only be solved by either creating or making another crisis worse. That is when they ride to the rescue with their gummit program to solve the problem. In nearly every case their solution makes the problem worse while lining the pockets of the Dems.
The secondary benefit to the Dems is this destroys the entire economy so they can beat the jobs drum and expand their power and control. There is not one problem that they said they had a solution for that they did not make the problem worse than when they first attacked the problem. Gummit cant solve problems it can only make them far worse which creates more gummit so the cycle can be completed. For decades they have been at war with fossil fuels since it is the lifeblood which powers the economic engine of America.
It began in the 60s with the pollution factor of how it dirtied the air and killed children next to the freeways so the auto industry built cleaner cars to the point of near perfection. Once that threshold was met then we heard about the coming ice age from hydrocarbons reaching the upper atmosphere and killing the ozone layer which again would kill the children. Then we moved to the Acid Rain hoax which every scientist said would destroy the forests which turned out to be more junk science but succeeded in vilifying the auto and energy industries while making anti-oil cottage industries. Now we have the granddaddy of all hoaxes which is Global warming with the cap and trade solutions to completely destroy our energy and transportation economies destroying millions of jobs and leaving the jobless in the streets.
This manmade crisis is the ultimate fake since it naturally takes all of the solutions to the District of Corruption and centralizes it. This is a corrupt politicians dream come true as they could become billionaires overnight through bribes and graft. This nightmare nearly happened unchallenged if not for the Climategate emails exposing the manipulated data and false conclusions for the entire world to see, although the corrupt politicians and academics continued their fraud knowing there was nobody to oversee their corruption. There is an equally corrupt media since it is an organ grinder monkey for the DNC and is far more fraudulent than any of the politicians. They know the manmade energy crisis will bring them more power as this crisis will be solved by more gummit control and larger bureaucracies, which is every communists dream.
Every problem we have can be viewed in the same prism of never let a good crisis go to waste. If you dont have crises then go out and make one. They have cause the energy crisis, the housing crisis, the Wall Street crisis, the healthcare crisis, the Social Security crisis and on and on by over-regulating industry and restricting the free market. This is not by accident, you can take every crisis we have and look at its history and you will find a liberals demanding Conservatives are starving women and children so they can bring in the hammer of Big Brother. They then have the media megaphones broadcasting it across the airwaves and soon a new government bureau full of democrats to shut that industry down and turning a solvable problem into a crisis. Those crisis would then be broadcast as an emergency that would kill the entire planet and more government takeover and control leading to a golden payoff to the commiecrats.
You will not find one problem or crisis that doesnt have this pattern in its history of a problem real or imagined being identified and then made worse by leftist do-gooders or gummit pols stepping in to regulate or control turning it into a crisis. Until we have people willing to go against this monumental power structure and withstand the onslaught they will find wanting to protect that power, it will not only continue it will get worse. We are seeing our candidates attempting to stand up to and expose the DC establishment but they need supernatural strength to go against all of the structures protecting it.
We need to stay focused on the problems and not the smoke and mirror distractions old media uses to destroy those who would pull the capstone away from their house of cards. Look at the crisis and who caused it but dont allow your eyes to be diverted from those issues by their old tired politics of personal destruction parlor tricks. Support and vote for the most Conservative candidate who is not corrupted by DC, your lives depend on it.
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily mine, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Foxnews Sunday found 2 new faces — relative unknowns.
Must be due to the holiday scheduling.
What a relevant lineup that isn’t!
Sunny start, and still relatively warm in the Pinetree State.
Thanks for the thread AB
I'm still a little weary from going up your way and back in a few days near 2,000 miles for me this week.
Wow, ABC will be the place to be today! Can't wait. Marco the great and the new Godfather of Sheeecaaaagooe Barney Rhambo. Rhambo must be feelin' good now that he's back in his bathhouse environment he and El Schabazz cherished so much in the good ol' days of gay Chicago.
They called my dog, but he had a scheduling conflict.
Your stuff just gets better and better every week.
IMHO, the regime has always planned a single four year term for their dear leader and many of their emissaries in both houses.
The problem is they have set up the new administration for possible failure. They broke the bank far worse than we ever dreamed. and when it all explodes it will be on our watch and guess who will get the blame. With the DBM right their carrying their lead football for them. We just hit 15 trillion of known debt and the unknown is what could sink the boat. Direct funding from the treasury by Bernanke trying to save Europe which is unsaveable as long as they embrace socialism.And who knows what else that we don't know about without an audit of the fed.
Another problem is that zero has very slickly blamed GW for all his problems so much that when we point out the same in our new administration it may fall on deaf ears since he has already played that card to death.
One big hope is energy.If we drill, drill, drill,it will help.
Problem is drilling is not usually an overnight solution other than employment which will be helped. It takes awhile to drill wells bring the oil to market,fight the enviro Marxists who will stand in the way, and get it into our tanks.
By the time we do it could be 2016.
Either way we will have a fighting chance in 2012,we have to make the best of it.
I said "relatively warm". To define that for here, I'd say above 40 and sunny.
I love showing off my weather this time of year. I envy yours in the Summer, though.
Thanks to air conditioning, I don’t have to spend my money on a Summer home on the Maine coast!!!!
Well...we know the speculators can turn on a dime. Like when GWB rescinded the executive order on offshore drilling.
Wallace: The most dangerous place in politics — the top of the GOP nominees.
Unnecessary hyperbole, Chris.
Too warm here Mr.Lobster! Still got those infernal A/C machines whirring only hours before Thanksgiving!
Let’s wait and hear what he has to say. I can’t believe Marco has gone over the hill so soon.
Wow that would be “record cold” for us!!
Instead, we get a Volt that goes 30 miles on a battery for 50k,what a deal.
Rep. Jeb Hensarling complains that there are plans in the Super Committee, but they are from the GOP.
Surprise, surprise, surprise.
What did they expect when they formed the Super Committee? The Dems haven’t produced a Federal budget in nearly 1000 days.
Why should the Dems succumb to any GOP proposal? Dems have maneuvered into a position where they can blame next year’s economic and joblessness on the obstructionist Republicans in the House and Senate.
Well, that could be millions!!!
But you could bring a tent to a coastal campground, rent a summer camp for a week, bring or rent a boat, ride a bike, sleep in your van, any of that for a portion of your AC power bill.
It's hard to get those Maine sights, sounds and experiences out of your air conditioner.
Wallace to Rep. Jeb Hensarling: You are leading me to believe you are going to fail this week.
Curious what your thoughts are. Hearing today the Super Comittee is probably going to fail. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
RomneyBOT Chris Wallace for Obama/DNC: Is it dead?
Rep. Jeb Hensarling, (R-TX) Texas, CoChair of SUPERCOMMITTEE:
“Not going to give up hope.” “Missed opportunity”
“We have not seen a Democrat willing to put a proposal
on the table to solve the problem.”
“Gave them a bipartisan plan. That was rejected, too.”
Chris Wallace for Obama/DNC:
“Will the Republicans make a new offer?”
Rep. Jeb Hensarling: “The time is late.”
“We thought there could be common ground for tax reform.”
Wallace tries to blame GOP of blaming DNC.
Hensarling explains, so Wallace switches the topic to entitlements
and pushes the DNC program.
Wallace: “How will it end?” (goes through bad scenarios)
Hensarling: “No one wants to give up hope.”
Wallace suggests a meeting on Wednesday
(reading from his White House/Romney script?).
Hensarling says they will let the group of 12 decide.
Hensarling reminds Wallace of the horrible unsupported debt.
Wallace changes the subject to the cutdown of the military budget
and Hensarling reminds him that this will hurt America.
Hensarling: “(This is a) Missed Opportunity”
Rep. Xavier Becerra basically says the Dems are content with allowing the Super Committee to default to the August agreement, unless they can come up with a better plan [translation: bigger taxes, bigger spending].
RAT Becerra lying through his teeth, accusing evil Republicans of cutting benefits to those already receiving them (Soshsecurity and MediCare). Lying about RAT proposals containing “cuts”.
Wallace needling him on “making a deal”.
Note to Wallace: Better an outright failure than a Pyrrhic victory.
According to Wallace, the Super Committee must come up with a plan by Wednesday, max.
However, any ‘deal’ must be sent to the Congressional Budget Office for scoring.
Any deal must be ‘made available’ 48 hours before being voted on/approved by the Super Committee.
Translation: There is no way they can make a Monday deadline to attain a Wednesday deal.
Rep. Xavier Becerra said they can still get something done.
Stupid party strikes again.
Hensnarling says all the plans are from the GOP. The Dems are doing nothing. They want the Committee to fail.
And yet in 2012 we are told we HAVE to send yet another member of the Professional Political class to DC to fix the problem.
We are so screwded
So maybe someone can ask him about the layoffs from Heinz company while he made millions from insider trading of pharmaceutical and medical companies......./s
Just turned over to MTP and say 5 seconds of Kerry.
Morning talkingpoint: ‘everything was on the table’
Kerry said it on MTP. Rep. Xavier Becerra said it on FNS.
[’Being on the table’ and ‘doing anything about it’ are 2 different things — except on Capitol Hill.]

I think you have hit on it MNJ.
If you are a Socialist/communist at heart,likethe dem party, and your overall goal is to destroy the country,advance govt. control/socialism as fast as possible than doing nothing and blaming the pubbies would be a quick goal.It would destroy the military since automatic cuts would than set in.
By destroying the military other commie countries that are building their military exponentially like China and Russia would ultimately overtake us and the goal of the Socialists here no more dominance in the world by the US would be achieved.
What the left is doing to the country is traitorous at best and ensures a doomsday scenario at worst.
Remember a dollar a day keeps Bari Schabazz away.
Hume is basically saying, regarding Gingrich's recent rise to the top, that the GOP are so desperate for ABR [Anyone But Romney], that they promoting anyone and everyone. Trouble is, those n00be #1’s cannot sustain their momentum.
Panel is hitting Gingrich on his healthcare flipflop — was for mandates before he was against them.
Kristol — the rise of Gingrich is due to nostalgia over Newt's years working behind the scenes [sometimes on the wrong side, but ...].
Williams — Gingrich is like a balloon — that could nick a limb at any time and burst. [lol]
As Wallace said at the opening of the Panel: It's bash Gingrich this morning.
Morning AB, All,
As always, thank you AB for doing this thread. Let me take this moment to wish you and all commenters on this thread a Happy Thanksgiving, Bless you and your family.
I;m a bit bummed out today. For last night, the Bishop came and this always is excitement. He came to bless the renovations on our church for Catholics, Bless them all, will bless anything standing still. Or anything moving, for that matter. One of my fave Catholic events down here in the swamps of Delaware is what they call the blessing of the Bay. Hand to God, they all go up by the seashore and the priests puts holy water into the Bay. I must smile. For God made the Bay, right?
Our choir sang and there was a reception in the Parish Life Center After. I chanced to see a fellow that I knew in the Finance Council so I asked how he was doing, how were the cataracts of my last memory of him? He told me a story about the retina detaching from something in his eye which made me gasp but it’s nothing, really, he said, you get used to spots in front of your eyeballs.
The conversation continues and I discover he was once a councilman up in NewCastle county, he’s a dug-in Democrat, and as these things go so they went.
“Who do you think’s going to win that awful GOP primary,” he said, “not Cain, surely not Cain. Wonder when the other shoe’s going to drop on him.”
I did defend Cain, asking how on earth this man only harrassed women in one city out of all in which he lived.
I also said the obvious, that Obama was going to get beat like a rented mule. “So you don’t want health care?” he said.
Heh. I launched into a rant that the crap that Democratic congress pulled on the American people was hardly any kind of health care system that anybody likes or wants, was he nuts out touting that as some kind of achievement?
Well this fellow, a handsome guy who did quite enjoy conversing with me I say with no modesty because a)well come on, I’ve been known to conjugate a verb with a noun and I do, ahem, know politics, and b)again with no modesty and I am no spring chicken, but I looked quite good last night what with the Bishop and my hair and face made up, wearing a fetching outfit of a black skirt, white blouse, a black jacket and a red festive type vest with decorative black scroll that even my husband remarked on how good I look. Heh.
So it went on for an hour but you know, I come home sort of despondent. It’s a bummer speaking to people like this because I admit, FreeRepublic, hell even living in Sussex county (where this fellow does live now and he’s taking chances talking like this)tends to insulate one from those who either willingly, or in this case of this man who is no dummy, with choice, do not have a clue. In fact, in due course a few people floated over and joined the conversation as it is an election year and this IS Sussex county.
Innocent flirtation notwithstanding, it bothers me. “The only guy you have worthwhile,” he says, stopping to ponder but I knew what he would soon say, “maybe Romney, but he’s a flip-flopper”. Heh, even the libs call Romney a flip flopper. “Or maybe,” he continues to my artfully made-up rolling eyes, “Huntsman.”
Insert guffaw here.
There was lots more to this conversation but believe that I knew more than him. This is a fellow who, I suspect, was used to talking down his debaters but this was ME who he was taking on. I also suspect he wanted to keep me at his side as I looked very nice, insert wink here.
Anyway, it bums me. In my FreeRepublic, Sussex county insular world, at times I lose perspective. These people are out there, ladies and gems, and they are perfectly happy to vote to destroy our country.
This gentleman was once a bigwig in a union so there you have it.
I’m done...moving on. Don’t want to bum y’all out too much.
Yeah, that's just wrong.
How you gonna have frost on the pumpkins, a landscape of autumn colors and fallen leaves, the smell of wood smoke (the sound of chain saws), a nice warm cup of mulled cider?
Of course I am thankful that we aren't buried in snow....yet.
Yeah, I noticed from his walk-arounds in Iowa, he did seem to be packing some serious lard.
Defense gets cut. We're close enough now that we live with it until we elect a ton more T-Partiers and seriously start to rebuild defense and rejigger the rest. Cut, cap, balance, etc.
Congress --particularly the Senate-- is the answer, and it won't make a damn bit of difference which Pubbie is in the White House if conservatives lead congress.
Newt, Mitt, Perry, Paul....each tends to go off the reservation at times. Mitt on big government, Perry on immigration, Paul on foreign affairs/national defense, and Newt on....well you can never be sure where Newt will go, but the point is our congress must not let them go off the rails.
I left Herman off the list. He’s still at the top of my list, for the record.
Poor Juan,its gotta be trying hitting that wall week after week in his new electric car.
Panel basically concludes that the Super Committee is a grand failure.
Gotta give Gingrich credit for his assessment of the Super Committee: The dumbest idea to come out of Capitol Hill in a long time.
Maybe in January they can try a Super Super Committee or, like McConnell did with the debt ceiling, just give the power for the budget to the prez. [/s]
Wallace and Williams argue over the value of #Occupy. Williams thinks it is good; Wallace thinks it is sinking in influence because of the recent violence.
He likes sausage making....”it’s called democracy” (icky grin)
Wahn whacking out defending the OWS dirtbags. Says Wallace is unfair.
My buddy Morgan has promised to hijack a 747 fill it with snow from Denver and land it in Marathon general the 24th. We are eagerly awaiting to see if that all comes true.
