The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
For, Whoever would LOVE life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech. 1 Peter 3:10
The Establishmedia is at it again, vilifying our candidates playing whack-a-mole and turning our leaders into cartoonish loons if they say anything that doesnt agree with their parroted DC groupthink; but enough about FOX News. Our candidates have to go on the attack with all of the media and treat them like the inside the beltway echo chamber they are. Most of the media got into the business because they wanted to promote liberal ideas and get Dems elected. They believed they could promote liberal ideals in a new way that everybody would be able to agree with if they only saw it as they did, now they are bitter old parrots who have nothing to offer.
The media is the only institution in DC more corrupt than the gummit. It also holds the distinction for being hated more than those same politicians they vilify every night, quite an accomplishment. The reason is they have no objective thought process in their analysis, only DNC clichéd phrases. There is no news or other side of any issue, simply the DNC talking points one after another as they wait for the weekly Brie and Chablis circuit. Once they get to their foray, they talk to other elitist snobs discussing which Democrat they like best and how could anybody be as stupid as Republican X. If you are one of those extremely rare conservative mediots than you go as the Token leper who is the party whipping boy as everybody else tries to humiliate and denigrate.
A true conservative would never go to one of these bash fests so the ones who are there become the Token Lawn Jockey conservative who is the amusement of these Columbia grads. They slowly weary of trying to defend the Conservatives since most are not true conservatives themselves and begin to make fun of our candidates to be admitted to the club and so the process continues. To be taken serious by the establishmedia or advance up the ladder you must be a liberal. As soon as one of our candidates begins to lead the pack by espousing Conservative ideas which go against the liberal establishment group thought they immediately become a target for the media attack machine which are soon verified by their phony polls and back into the pack they supposedly fall.
This election season we are witnessing the pure corruption of our reporters as they march lockstep in their absolute disgust of any candidate who strays off their tracks. The first two heads over the media mantles were Palin and Cain now they are turning their guns on Newt. He is an old time enemy and his disgust for them is only exceeded by theirs of him. They immediately made Bachmann a hero for her attacks on Gingrich which knocked him off his game although he once again knocked a few out of the park on judges and the pipeline. He is their biggest threat to their power as he can easily beat their messiah in a debate while articulating conservatism to the unwashed masses. They pretend to not have a dog in this hunt while they own the hunt.
What we are witnessing is a bigger fraud the MF Global since this is a fraud election being perpetrated on the American people as fair and open. It is not only rigged but we have reporters distorting the results of the debates to minimize the current leader while trying to sway the voters towards Mitt Rino so they will continue to have a liberal in the Whitehouse. They live and die by polls and are terrified of what they see coming down the tracks and fear a strong Conservative could do the unthinkable of taking all three houses making the press even less relevant. If that happens they would be like blind men describing a sunrise to a bunch of sighted people.
Every election we see it and are always amazed at how corrupt and unethical Old Media is. They have no oversight and run rampant over any type of ethics or integrity as they continue to shill for their Party. As Conservatives we expect to have a fair playing field and time and again we are exposed to the complete stacking of the deck against our candidates as they promote their tyrannical agenda. We hear a common sense solution to a problem only to have it mocked like it was something from an insane asylum while they continue to promote their failed programs.
The only way we are going to beat this corrupted system is to get behind a non-establishment candidate and support them to the end and quit playing the gotcha politics to push the ball as far down the field this election. We need America to understand that simple solutions like drilling and the Keystone Pipeline will work and create jobs the gummit could only pretend to make. It is time to unite against the establishmedia candidate and mop him all over the floor and then beat Barak Ocommie in a landslide using Conservative ideas to defeat this corrupt stranglehold on our elections.
Pray for America

Hi Tx! How’s AFRTS!?
Good morning, Alas. Hope Free Republic plays nice this morning and lets us talk.
Also hope WE play nice. I, for one, will try.
Four candidates on this morning but no one I want to see really.
Does anyone really want to see Barney Frank again as long as they live?
Wow. Fox goes all in!
LOL! It’s ok. Could really use an infusion of talent...trying to get my foot back in the door and out of all this tactical stuff for a little bit.
Other than that just enjoying another beautiful snowy day in Bavaria....ready for a little political discourse.
For crying out loud, Romney on FNSunday.
Chris Wallace already asked him about his flip-flops during the debate, so what on earth can he ask him that will be new? His investments in Fannie & Freddie?
I plan to watch Face the Nation!
I’ll watch MTP and FNSunday too. *Sigh*
OH, and Good Morning and thanks for the thread!!!!
Perry and Santorum are missing and that’s a shame.
I’d love to hear Gov. Haley explain her weird turn in endorsing Mitt-flop.
Opinion ? These shows are not worth the energy needed to turn your set on.
I commented on Bray’s wonderful piece when he posted it yesterday!
I notice somehow no one could find 5 minutes to talk to Perry.
Reminds me of when Bush was “disappeared” from coverage after Gore was nominated. A lot of people accused him of being a lazy campaigner when it was the lack of coverage that made him invisible.
Good morning, everyone!
bray, you are so right. The media is a bigger enemy than anything else.
They protect liberals ferociously and without conscience. Look how few people realize how many really idiotic gaffes Obama has made?
They emphasize any tiny missteps by conservative candidates. Both the Dallas Morning News and the Ft. Worth(less) Star Telegram carried front page stories yesterday about Perry getting some pension from the state as though it were illegal.
We keep thinking their influence is dying, but it’s not.
Not to the ordinary person who is not a political junky like some of us.
It is infuriating, and I do think their influence is lessening Very Slightly.
anyway, thanks for the post.
It’s another clear cut case of the media trying to pick our candidate for us. And the supposed Conservatives in D.C. and in the media aren’t helping those of us that vote at all.
The establishment...Rockerfeller Republicans want to force McCain lite on us in the form of Mitt-flop instead of helping us nominate someone that will fix the mess we have now.
lil Chrissy Wallace and Myth Romney for the whole hour ?
Chrissy will now have to admit he has a blue dress
I called Fox yesterday to complain about the ignoring of Perry in the debate.
And I never call people to complain. I just gripe to you guys.
ANd yet another reason to avoid Mitt-flop:
Bob Dole endorses Romney.
I have repeatedly sent complaints through Twitter. Just did so, in fact.
And a sad bit of news: Vaclev Havel, first president of a free Czechoslovakia, has died.
Wallace should put him on the hot seat regarding his comments from 2010. Now, when he needs Conservatives to vote for him, Romney says he'll repeal the whole bill ... but will he really? I don't trust him to repeal it (or trust Wallace to bring up this major flip flop). Another article I saw about Romney sums him up pretty well for me:
As a typical standard-issue Republican, Romney wouldnt have the heart or the courage to take the fight to the president, but instead would debate around the edges, and lose. (The Stupid Party - Michael Walsh)
Newt on-on-one with Bob Schieffer? Talk about a mismatch...
HOWEVER, I can't wait to see if Barney Frank gets any questions about his close buddy and fellow liberal genius Jon Corzine. Maybe Barney knows where all that MF Global customer money went, even if Jonny doesn't.
It does seem rather strange that no one has figured out why this happens.
I usually give up when it starts and go to Twitter.
Take heart, altura. We don't really know how great their influence. Why has Obie slipped to 43% re-elect ? What caused the largest Dem drubbing in 70 years in the '10 mid-terms ? It's certainly not because old media turned on dems and started supporting pubbies. I'll give 'em minmal affect, and it's weakening every cycle.
I'll grant you some cracks are beginning to appear, but Chrissy Mathews' show is one of the least watched cable shows, so virtually no one saw his recent anti-Obie heresy.
Romney the total establishment guy.
“Does anyone really want to see Barney Frank again as long as they live??
I expect Schieffer to be nastier than usual, don’t you?
Elect another batch of TPartiers and it won't matter which R we elect. WE will lead. More focus on congress and the senate in particular, please.
Dude! Weihnachten im Deutschland?!? Mit bier and gleuwien?
Gosh, you are LUCKY!!! I miss it. After you’re old and retired, you look back fondly on these times.
The reason they do this, Altura, is because they ARE liberals.
It used to be, back in the olden days of the last century, that journalists were taught that the most important thing of there profession was 4 W's and H: Who What, Where, When and How.
Since the Hippies of the Sixties took over as professors, they aren't taught this anymore. They are taught that the journalist is an activist, and must seek out the "truth". The journalist has a responsibility to push the "truth", in that every story should promote social justice (which is a Left Wing ideal that in itself always leads to injustice for the individual).
So you see, they're part and parcel with the democrats, the greens, the anti-war crowd, the anti-Americans, the pro-minority (and by iteself, nothing wrong with minorities UNLESS you have to tear down the majority to promote them, which they do), the homosexuals, the socialists ,communists and arnachists.
In other words, Liberals.
THanks for the thread AB! (Sure would like one of those hats you catholic guys wear,they really rock!)
Looks like its time for DBM candidate destruction. Should be interesting. Poor Boehner no matter what he does its never quite good enough.He needs a good injection of Reaganesque to cure all that’s wrong with him.
Starts Chris Wallace: (Evasive coward) "Mitt Romney sits down
for his first Sunday show in two years".
No mention made of why he was hiding.
Chris Wallace begins by calling the Speaker "zany" and
"crazy", "lacks temperament", and other demeaning
things for Romney so Romney need not say a word.
Wallace speaks entirely for Romney twice.
Then RomneyBOT Wallace lauds Romney extensively
"won endorsement" of Haley says Wallace.
Romney then begins his attacks with Wallace Pimp as his wingman.
Just turned on the show and the first words out of Wallace’s mouth “he’s zany, he’s undiscplined...what’s your argument against Newt?” And Romney takes the bait instead of saying...I’m not here to argue against Newt, I’m here to argue against Obama.
Mitt has a lot of nerve attacking Newt on cap-and-trade, which he just did on FNS. And no follow-up from Wallace on Romney’s flip-flops on AGW.
Mitt goes no tie and less grease. Back to class warfare helping the middle class while punishing the rich.
Huge 1000-word posts on the religious threads.
Woof! Romney just said that he would want to see specfics on those who want to cut a trillion dollars from the budget to make sure it would not hurt the economy! Right out of the left-wing playbook.
Wallace links Romney to Obama on one issue
(and looks up into space, suggesting this was all set up in advance).
Romney responds with the prepared "answers".
Questions on the real issues seem unlikely today since
these were prepared to show how "smart" bad gov Romney is
and to attack Speaker Gingrich (more than twice by Wallace).
FLASHBACK (ignored by RomneyBOTs at FOX "News").
"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.
* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.
* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.
* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."
Shieffer is a disgrace. He’ll be set to try to make Newt explode....LOL.
Boehner is handling apeface Gregory.
Not giving David any points on the economy and the drop in the unemployment: workforce has declined!
Number of peeps looking for jobs had dropped. Correct!
It does appear Mitt had an oil change for his hair before the interview.
Romney sucks on ice. I’d rather watch fish swim. This guy is gonna beat Obama?
Ha ha Wallace had to remind him to go after Obama.
Mitt is bombing in this interview. He comes across as a career politician and says nothing about anything. He has no core beliefs and will be exposed by the liberal attack machine.
The ineligible RINO Mitt Romney:
"I bet you $10,000 that my pimp and flack Chris Wallace
will simply ignore both what I do today
and my support of Human-caused Global Warming
-- even while YOU rot in jail.
Boehner did well when addressing the economy.
Now playing the McCain interview for Boehner.
He comes the Newt question. Is he fit to serve?
Boehner dodges. I know Newt well. We’ve been friends for years.
Boehner says Newt is conservative.
"Thats why in a productive society you have new invention coming along..." - what a tool.
Actually, although Wallace did have his friendly face on instead of the sneer he used with Perry, he did not, himself call Newt zany.
Rather, he said to Mitt, “You’ve called Gingrich zany and so on ...” which gave Mitt the chance to explain how Newt wants to bounce light off of satellites to light the streets, etc.
I never heard that particular idea but Newt does have flights of fancy. That’s not entirely a bad thing as long as he stays focused on important stuff and doesn’t dream about taking role electronically when he should be fighting Obamacare.
I left after that.
