“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us: but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood. God’s LOVE and Ours. 1 John 4:6

The second biggest threat to America’s freedom is the Global Warming scam. This week FirstEnergy Corp announced it is closing six coal fired plants since they cannot afford to meet the EPA’s global warming standards. Never mind there is no manmade global warming or greenhouse gasses the EPA is using it as an excuse to destroy the coal industry. This is going to drive up the cost of energy for millions of Americans across the Midwest and further destroy the economy and just the beginning of over a hundred plants in the next decade. Add this to the Keystone Pipeline decision and you have massive job losses heading across the grasslands over junk science.

While we are closing our coal fired plants and replacing it with massively more expensive eyesores like windmills and solar panels, the Chinese are opening one coal fired plant per week. The Chinese are far more forward thinking than our gummit and understand the necessity of having cheap dependable energy without the handicap of the earth cult we have to defeat. We are watching our country disappearing through the biggest fraud ever designed on America.

Global Warming was originally designed by Shell Oil and Enron as a way to insure themselves against their feared disappearance of the oil reserves around the world. They were heavily involved in the Acid Rain fraud and wanted to expand it beyond just the coal energy industry and make every exhaust pipe around the world forced to pay a massive tax for every BTU they burn. They then discovered some scientists in Britain experimenting with a CO2 greenhouse theory and promoted it with algore’s movie marketing to the weak minded as a scientific reality bringing us to where we are. These people were not able to make trillions on the carbon trading but are driving energy costs up high enough to make wind, nuclear and solar seem feasible.

Making wind and solar cost effective due to outlawing coal then the winners just happen to be GE, Solyndra and all the crony buddies of this bankrupt administration. This regime completely ignore the growing evidence of the agenda driven junk science that is being hidden from the people thanks to a corrupt academia, media and gummit. This trilateral confluence has tricked the people into believing if they make sacrifices they will save the earth from destruction when they have been sold a false belief. This is not built on any science but a faith in science and the religion of earth worship. Scientists are the priests of the cult of atheistic liberalism and the followers believe them completely without questioning anything they say like every other cult.

In the case of global warming they had a basic theory that man was causing the earth to heat up due to excessive use of carbon energy and created some unrelated experiments like a plastic covered jar to represent the trapping of heat. They then found some temperature readings and ice melting to back up their theory and sold it to the rest of academia generously salted with Marxist redistribution theories to solve the problem and instantly they had a coalition of fellow Ivy League commies. This is the exact same tactic they used for evolution which has as many gaps you can drive a train through, but they all agreed and declared it truth making it the promoted theory without questioning. Anybody who dares to question are declared a heretic and virtually burned at the stake. Academia resembles the witch trials of Salem more than science in today’s colleges and media.

This type of junk science has not only destroyed people’s lives and careers but now is going to do real damage to real people throughout America. It cannot be overstated how much it is going to cost people in jobs and livelihoods that a small group of scientists have fundamentally followed this agenda driven fraud to destroy an entire country’s economy. How large an ego does someone have to have to let something like this occur to not at least open their findings to those who disagree to their theory? There are real talented scientists who have real evidence that these results were exaggerated and in many cases completely falsified to maintain their theory. How large an ego or hatred do you have to possess to work at the EPA knowing CO2 is not a poison yet go ahead and punish millions of people to promote your religion? They also know each and every one of them exhale CO2 so perhaps they should start there?

We are about to see five perfectly fine and dependable power plants about to be taken off line and scrapped over a fraud religion. When they declare the separation of church and state they conveniently leave their religion in the state, schools and gummit while kicking God to the curb. Of course the people who are enforcing these draconian laws have nothing to worry about since their state jobs are never going to be touched while those millions of Americans who are about to be punished will do all the suffering. Just like the old Soviet Union, the Muscovites ate caviar while the workers lived in multiple family apartments while freezing. Just like Valarie Jarrett’s tenets in her slums who froze while she used the heat money to fund Obama’s campaign, the have not’s will starve while the inner circle parties on caviar.

It is time to take off the shackles of enviro worship and go back to God. It is time for man to be the manager of his world and use every tool at his disposal to make an energy independent country. We have been slaves to their gods for far too long and there is no reason for us to be forced to worship their cult when we have the one true God to worship. Their politics is their worship and gummit is their church so they mix their church and state so we need to bring ours back. It is time to throw these bums out and rewrite every one of their laws and begin to use economic decisions based on economics and freedom rather than if it makes you feel holy towards mother earth. Once we free ourselves from worshipping the earth, water and wind gods we will turn this economy around and once again light that City on the Hill.

Pray for America

Thanks for the thread AB. Much appreciated.

Once again bray has an eloquent, brilliant expose on the demise of the US by destroying capitalism incrementally.The destruction is facilitated through the environmental Marxists who help run the regime. From solyndra to Keystone to Coal destruction the enviro-marxists are firmly in control. They regularly tell the dear manchurian leader what,where and when to do their bidding.

Forbidding 80-90% of areas holding massive quantities of energy to be used by energy providers is a huge success for the regime. Places like Alaska,the Baaken find,Keystone and others are so easy to put on-line and can help the nation in so many ways that we are back to square one as we rack our brains as to why the regime keeps destroying our pathway to energy security.

Truth is we know why.It's what they are there for,incremental destruction of the US.

The ability to destroy the country remains the same. It's the DBM. They won't cover any news story that reflects poorly on the regime and by doing so an uninformed electorate always works to the regimes benefit.

That's what we are here. Time to level the playing field by making the New Media the champion of truth,information free and unbiased.

It was perceived as pandering when Bachmann wanted $1.80 gas. It is pandering from Gingrich. Presidents do not set gas prices [yet ... but Obama might change that, too].

Prices went over $4 under GW Bush. Many tend to forget that while they are blaming the current over-$4 trend on Obama.

Ryan accuses Obama of ducking economic issues in his budget that does nothing to change the status quo — which raises spending automatically. Obama is providing a lack of leadership.

Ryan says his plans offer credible alternatives for getting the economy in a growth mode.

Hollen wants to continue things, so as not to mess up the economic progress that is starting to take hold. Says plans like Ryan’s hit the middle class, won’t close one tax loophole.

Of course Presidents do not set gas prices (present one exempted).

But, they can set an energy policy that makes lower gas prices possible.

Newt is presenting a policy that allows prices to fall based on "drill here, drill now" positively affecting the economic law of supply and demand.

Jake Tapper asked McCain him about the sheriff(?) who stepped down because he threatend to deport his lover....(lol, and what???? guess I don’t know all the down and dirty on this one)

Okay, now on to Santorum and obama’s “phony theology” comments. Gibbs responds that we shouldn’t question candidates’ faith. It’s wrong, it’s time to get rid of it, we shouldn’t question each other’s character (what?).

Tapper says Santorum responded that his comments were not questioning obama’s faith. Gibbs responds we should not question each others’s character and faith. (allrighty.....character does not count, now!)

Tapper plays Santorum comments on obama’s energy policy statements (he’s right, and this was what Santorum was referring to when he used the “phony theology” phrase). Santorum basically said obama is trying to drive consumption down with his policies that drive prices up because of his agenda (theology).

Bernanke Not Fooled by Recent Unemployment Gains
http://www.fxstreet.com/fundamental/analysis-reports/market-pulse-fx/2012/02/13/02/
In his testimony before the Senate Budget Committee last week, Bernanke said that even with an improving outlook, the U.S. economy will grow at a “sluggish” rate for the remainder of the year.

Dems and Media perceive the Republicans are weak on social issues.

Thus, guess what will be the subject between now and November?

The economy is showing some signs of recovery and jobless numbers are looking better [manipulated, of course, but they don’t care about that]. It will be more difficult for the Republicans to hit Obama over the head on economic issues if the manipulated unemployment rate is under 8% by November.

Ryan is brilliant!! He won't fall for any of DNC Dave's obvious rat traps.

Recently,Stuffy Stephy created a phony issue given to him buy the DNC of "contraception" as if anyone anywhere was against it!

This was a great issue for us to analyze, take the contraception con apart and see how the left works. It's the same old game over and over. Create an issue out of blue sky. Pubbies are against contraception,repeat it every where,which they did. Than proclaim how wonderful their side is and what barbarians we are for not going for "contraception.--which was never an issue to begin with!!!" Its the same ol' same ol' on most every issue. They are all created by the Axelrod types and then spread all over by the DBM until the average voter thinks what they are hearing, seeing on the tube is true.

If we don't counter this,and Ryan is a great example of how to counter it,we lose, they win.

Dems back to declaring budget cuts are "AUSTERITY" it's all dem chat, rat chat,new speak.

Once again Ryan won't fall for any of the rat traps. Ryan "White House is not even trying to fix the problem"---YEEEAAAHHHHH CHALK ONE UP FOR OUR SIDE!!! White House won't lead,ducks the issue, kicks the can down the road,Ryan is great! It's a 0 debt fueled economic crisis facing us.

Ryan: This adm. utter lack of leadership. Its now the "A" word-- "AUSTERITY"-- remember it. It a must poll well.

The Only way to reduce the deficit is through class warfare--DNC policy,all about getting reelected never about helping the country.

Amazing.

Morning AB, All…..

Not much happening here in the swamps of Delaware. Possible snow storm. As I understand it, snow is white stuff what falls from the sky. We shall see.

As always AB, thank you for doing this thread.

Bear in mind folks that Media Matters, a 503© tax exempt organization, monitors this thread so post accordingly.

David Brooks, poor fellow….no life, no love. George Soros, hateful old man, nothing-burgers, needs to get the hell out of this country.

Bill Clinton trying to rebuild his image, old horn dog.

And finally, on this quick update, scuttlebutt has it that a senator who shall remain anonymous says that if Romney doesn’t get the nomination they’ll have to get out the big guns….

JEB BUSH!!!

Never mind that there is an established primary system and maybe Gingrich or Santorum will win if not Romney. But the Blue Bloods want Romney and, if not Romney, movement is afoot to get Jeb Bush in there.

If the Blue Blood GOP does manage to do this, in some form or fashion, Jeb Bush will not only NOT get nominated, the Republican party will splinter apart like a house of toothpicks in a hurricane.

Cause anybody believes that the base who’d theoretically already rejected Romney will merrily vote for Jeb bush...I got a bridge to sell.

Cheap….just been renovated.

I thought Ryan did a very good job. We need to get these guys and saturate the Sunday shows as well as the shows during the week.

They need to do like the Democrats and say it over and over and over and over again, till it becomes the truth.

BECAUSE IT IS THE TRUTH!

Dag, they even have the truth on their side.

I disagree, Tom. Obama has done everything he's could to see the prices got up. If he reversed those things, I could easily see the prices going down by a least a buck.

Since W's term, we have found and exploited new oil fields (Bakken) and others that are off limits due to envoronmental concerns... (Gulf of Mexico, offshore on both coasts)...

And let's not forget the Keystone pipeline.

The whole idea that the President can have such an effect on private commerce is revolting. He (or any president for that matter) has too much power. Government has too much power. We should only vote for those who pledge to roll back government, including these types of arbitrary powers (Executive orders, signing statements, etc).

ABC Round Table on “Contraception Controversy”

Jonathon Karl - Santorum’s appeal right now is his blue-collar appeal. Focussing on the far right stuff is not helping him.

George Will - There is no contraception debate. Clarence Page pipes in and says Santorum wants to ban it. Karl and Dobbs correct Page. Didi pipes in - this is about women’s health. Women don’t want Santorum telling them how to handle their health.
