“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. ‘Put this money to work,’ he said, ‘until I come back.’

My source inside the White House has verified they are in complete meltdown mode as America was given a clear view inside the WH Occupier’s head. He says he will not do it again although many inside the campaign believe his latest love of small business may be too little too late. His three year vilification far outweighs his latest love of free enterprise and even it is hedged with large doses of Middle Class against the wealthy so they question the effectiveness at fooling the Independents they need to fool. He knows he needs those empty headed women who elected him last election so they are going all in on female White guilt.

What the managers of his election are dealing with is the complete lack of trust the American people have in him or his policies. He and his campaign spokesmen in the media are attempting to tell the people and business he did not mean the Federal Gummit owns everything you worked your entire life for. What they are finding in the polls which are beginning to resemble the Grecian Stock Market is people actually understand his comments on a deeper level than just the words. They understood the way he said it and his body language as he spoke to his fellow America haters. His words were spit from his mouth as he mocked the small businessman just as he likely did in his ACORN and Columbia days, as he impugned the American dream. He hates the American dream and loves communist slavery since he is finally the slave master.

What the internals are showing according to my source is Americans understand he hates America and free enterprise right down to his bones. He believes America is fundamentally flawed and is guilty of crimes against humanity with its conquering the Indian as well as slavery. They understand he thinks America is too wealthy and he is doing something about that. People inside the White House have become worried he is becoming a walking talking commie lib cliché. His latest commercial is polling even worse than the original statement as it was supposed to explain how he didn’t mean to say what he believed rather than keeping it hidden behind code phraseology like Middle Class or Fairness and Equality. All his commie supporters get tingly with those phrases as they know it is the new communist marketing of the old Marxist power to the Proletariat chant. These are dog whistles for the underground communist party which runs the DNC.

His latest commercial is polling very poorly although the tone of it focuses well on women it loses men when he indicates he is going to punish the rich to grow the middle class. He claims he can grow the economy on the backs of the middle class while punishing the evil rich. He doesn’t explain how the middle class magically create jobs or why we need to be further divided in classes. The campaign people expected a bump from those in the middle class but they are not impressed with his continued picking winners and losers as well as the fuzzy explanation of who the so called middle class are. Once again it comes across as cronyism as he decides who is going to succeed rather than the free market. This is classic socialism as he or the gummit determines who will succeed by political determinations rather than finding a void, filling it and making a living off of that product or service, he simply doesn’t understand and never will.

What he and and all of the Democrat campaigns are suffering from is the exposure and display of its commie roots. People are beginning to identify, expose and discuss the weakness and tyranny of Stalinist style communism and are seeing it throughout our gummit and society. They see the roadblocks and regulations that strangle the free market as well as the individual homeowner from DC to San Fran. They are disgusted with the tyrants saying Chic-fil-A can’t express his opinion or the outlawing of foods and drinks in NY. They understand that DeathCare is a giant step towards nationalized healthcare which would fundamentally change America and its healthcare system becoming a corrupt political machine. They see PravdABC as the messengers of communism and discount it accordingly making it less effective at moving opinion. The fact there is no difference between the New York Times, ABDNCBS, Reuters, AP and MSDNC, they may as well have the same writers as they are all pushing the same agenda and everyone knows it. They represent the opinion of the most extreme 5% as 95% of America simply shakes their heads at the lunacy they promote. The media may very well be the most corrupt organization in America and that is saying something.

So now the main discussion in the WH and DNC strategists in Rockefeller Tower is will communism be able to continue to hide its façade? They are all wondering if it will be possible in the future with the internet to continue to fool America. They are depressed they were not able to do damage control on his you didn’t make that happen comment like they could with the “Spread the wealth around,” last election. This one is really defining him. They are extremely concerned the uncooked polls are beginning to mirror the 2010 massacre as people are looking to turn the other direction and limit the control of gummit and their Party will pay the price.

They are worried people are looking for freedom from their so called health protecting regulations and once those people and the engine America gets wind of that freedom the DNC will become a relic. What would happen to the communist Party if the economy began to recover with the slightest deregs from our gummit? They are terrified of the economic boom that would occur from cheap energy and their boot being removed from the economy. If the people put the cause and effect together with the help of the internet it would be the beginning of the end for the District of Communism and the start of a free new America. The only question then is what do you do with an aging central planner? Perhaps some capitalist entrepreneur will open a shuttle from DC to Cuba and let them retire in their workers’ paradise. With Castro being dead thirty, they could use a young new dictator with experience in destroying economies, Bon Voyage Barak and power to the Cuban middle class!

Pray for America

Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Bray’s. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.

One more thing. Notice Scalia is on FNC and NOT ABCCBSNBCPBS? Maybe he enjoys giving his opinions without being attacked by a network of Democrat/Marxist supporting liberals.

Good one today, bray. I’m thinking of changing my tag line to “Vote for a New Free America”

Speaking of Chick-fil-A, I found one not far from home and I’ve eaten there three times now and will return more. Good food and I will support them as much as possible.

Here in Alabama, we’re surrounded by Chick-fil-A’s, but I don’t usually eat there because I just don’t like fried chicken in a sandwich. However, this week I’ve eaten there twice just to show them support! The chicken strips with coleslaw is pretty good and keeps my carbs down!

We need reporters for This Week (Without David Brinkley) to tell us what Romney is saying and how he is being treated.

I would suspect that the DNC Media would want to discuss his comments about the London Olympics (and how horrible they were!), his refusal to release his tax returns (which somehow proves he's hiding something) and his entrapment of American Jews (see this Pelosi thread here and here) by visiting Israel.

Brilliantly stated and this is the core of what this regime is all about,the advancement of Communism in the US.

Formerly incremental through EU's and other methods the pace of Leninism is now racing at 1,000 mph through every phase of govt. and our lives. ,p> The big question is can it be stopped in time? Will the far left have enough DBM push to get another four years or not. Can they sneak in another 300-500 million mid-east campaign bucks to buy yet another election?

The future of the country is at stake and thank goodness we have patriots like bray who can expose the other side for who and what they are.

Way to go buddy,like minds. Backlashes against the regime are only getting bigger every day.If I were a worker at Chick-Fil-A I would be proud that the regime had picked on my firm since that means they are doing something right!
Hope Rush gets this one tomorrow.Nothing like countering the regime a buck at a time.

TW

Gibbs talks like Obama is running and the year is 2008 — will do infrastructure, yada yada yada.

[What has Obama been doing for the last 3.5 years? Breaking things.]

Sub Host thinks the election will hinge on a gaffe, a misstatement, like what Romney said in London about the Olympics.

[Subhost did NOT play a clip of what Romney did say, so what was the supposed gaffe?]

Gibbs implies that Romney embarrassed the US in the eyes of the whole World, by questioning whether they (England) were ready for the Olympics.

Yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Morning AB, All.

Thank you AB for doing this thread.

I was going to start out with a story about Catholics, politics and my recent participation in a march on Rt. 1 no less, about that awful Obamacare and how it would force Catholics to provide abortions, et al, against the church’s doctrine.

Which I still will, but let me begin by, shocker, something having to do with Sunday talk shows.

First thing on Fox Sunday....”Romney’s gaffe at the Olympics.”

First, I might not especially like Romney but he did not say anything offensive when asked about the state of the Olympic surround (London). I thought Romney’s answer was calm, measured, well thought-out and the biggest bugaboo of all, the thing that has the world keening on end about what he had the nerve to do....IT WAS THE TRUTH!

Romney didn’t say anything bad. He expressed the same concerns expressed the entire week prior....issues of London security, possibilities of strikes....that sort of thing.

The rule is, evidently, that politicians should never tell the truth or they will be villified for same.

And they wonder why the politicos always lie.

It’s because WE expect it of them.

I hope we all get the numbers on how bad things are the day of the election so Democrats cannot use the upward spike once Romney wins on November 6th.

What I mean is, Romney wins and the win alone will help the stock market and employment. That spike will be used by future Democrats to claim 0zero was doing everything right. Just as Democrats claim bubba Clinton had such a great economy when he left office. That ignores all the success of the Republican congress in forcing Clinton to follow the Republican’s lead.

The hypocrisy is that the newsies brought up the same topic during a news report before the opening of the Olympics -- are they ready? can they handle the security? will there be terrorists attacks?

Earlier today c-spam was all over Romney's Olympic comments doing a Rush-style revue showing how all the Drivebys use the same stuff to try and support the regime.

Truth is its all timed to try and counter the huge ozero Roanoke,you didn't create that business fopaw which may well sink ozeros candidacy.

Making things worse we learned recently,don't have the link handy yet,that 4 of 5 small businesses are in the 250 k "rich" status that the regime wants to keep from getting tax breaks. This is huge since 80% of the new jobs are created by this same group.

Killing off tax breaks for the supposed rich who actually create most of the possible job creation is so blatantly anti capitalist its unsupportable by the regime. Yet another sure deathnell for the regime should the truth get out.

ABC, Matthew Dowd interviews Gibbs bs. Romney spokesperson... talking about candidates’s gaffes. Gibbs - Romney’s gaffes show he just might not be ready to be commander in chief. lol.

On Israel - obAMA has had the strongest sanctions against Iran.
Dowd asks if there is any substantive difference between the two candidates w/re to Israel. Romney dude - words do matter. Gibbs brings up walking the streets of Israel. During that trip started the Iron Dome. obama is one of the strongest supporters of Israel. Wow, Gibbs is actually a very good liar.

ABC brings up the “you didn’t build that” (obama) vs. comments Romney made about the olympics in London essentially equating the two “gaffes”.

WOW. I seriously doubt most business owners/voters would agree with that analysis. Nice try ABC.

Romney wins and the win alone will help the stock market and employment.

During the last year or so, I have heard financial experts on the news talkies and seen posts that indicate businesses are holding a lot of cash because they are uncertain of new regulations, etc., under Obama.

Thus, if Romney wins, they see real 'hope and change' and may flood that cash into the business world. If Obama wins, they may continue to hold the cash and the economy could remain dismal for the next 4 years.

From misreading the title of Judge Scalia’s book
to misspeaking English, Chris Wallace
was SO outclassed by Judge Scalia that it was
like an ant interviewing a real scholar.

After misspeaking words, and not looking very smart,
to feign intellect, Wallace brings in leftist positions.
“Is Justice Breyer wrong?” says the Romney Anchor-Wife?
Judge Scalia was so crisp and smart both in this answer,
and what he said thereafter, that it should be heard
and not reviewed.

Then, Wallace appears to try to mock the Judges’ book.
The number of issues is the same as Heinz products,
Wallace leaks due to his brain-mouth problem from
trying to bring in everything to Romney and the DNC.

As it continues, Judge Scalia shows irritation as he corrects
Wallace who misreads about mandates and
then the Judge’s Opinion. Smackdown.

Gun control. Wallace brings up quashing the 2nd Amendment
probably because Romney supports gun control.
The Judge points out this will be decided in future
cases. Wallace tries to get him to decide now.
Assault rifles? 100 round weapons?
The Judge repeats that this will be decided in
the future. Smackdown.

Privacy. Wallace tries to purport what the Constitution
says about privacy, and the Judge corrects him
and sets him straight. Smackdown.

Wallace tries twice to get the Judge to talk about
internal Court proceedings, but Judge Scalia correctly
refuses. Smackdown.

Wallace queries about the politics of the Judges.
J. Scalia points out they are not political but
accurately notes that judges
are “selected because of their judicial philosophy”.
J. Scalia comments on Obama’s attack on SCOTUS
at the State of the Union was so good that it too
should be heard, and not reviewed.

On and on it went with the AnchorWife trying
to make Judge Scalia “admit” he is cantankerous
when all it showed is that Judge Scalia is honest
and appreciates the TEXT of the law.

So here’s the story.

Catholic churches across the fruited plains are sparking rallies and such to fight back against Obamacare and its attack on private religions.

My church sponsored a huge rally on the matter and, of course, I attended. So many things happened to me that night that I’m still overwhelmed.

Let us begin by saying we were to meet at the church at 6pm. At that time we would stand at the periphy of Route 1, right through the mighty beach traffic and the tourists. I suspect that many of the tourists didn’t know what the hey our issues were but they beeped and waved and stuck entire torsos out passing auto windows. Hell I loved it.

We had about 300 show up for this thing and, heh, of course, and totally unbeknownst to me, every politician running for something showed up. Well every conservative politico but that’s mostly what we have in mighty Sussex county Delaware, paradise on earth.

I had no idea and I am campaign treasurer for TWO of those same candidates.

First thing, one of my guys walks up to me just as I am exiting my car and says Hi. I jump and get all confused as I live two lives here in Sussex county, my political life and affiliation with the Republican county, and my church life, in which I am very active.

So I shake my head and determine I am in the right place.

Every person I knew in the local Republican party was there and a few of them were ALSO parishioners in my church. Some I knew about, many I didn’t.

The politicians, seeing that I was somewhat known by the church folks (I’m in the choir, on the Finance council, on the Fundraiser committee and now am on some committee or another to do voter registration ), asked me to introduce them around.

Yon ladies and gems I got so disoriented because it was like my two worlds collided. Adding to this somewhat enjoyable state of confusion, a few of my choir members came up to me and....heh....ASKED ME TO INTRODUCE THEM TO THE POLITICIANS!

It got so I totally forgot who was who but I did it, indeed, I introduced everyone I could.

Including my church’s managing priest.....more, shocking more, on this later.

If the GOP/Romney play that right, it could be Obama's 'read my lips' error.

So a priest very involved in this sort of activism gave a talk at the church’s Parish Life Center and once again, to add to my confusion, HE’S MARRIED!

I noted the ring on his finger and wondered why a priest would be wearing a wedding band. At some point he informs us that he was once a Lutheran minister and that he is married. As if, to my confused mind, being a Lutheran minister once allows priests to get married.

Right out the door is that old bromide that no Catholic can receive all 7 sacriments as nobody can receive Holy Orders and Matrimony except....well this guy.

My church is sponsoring another rally on 8/13 and guess who our speaker will be then? Michael Novak!

When they said that I sat up straight as a rail. Yes, the National Review’s Michael Novak!

Anyway, at one point I introduced my priest to some politician or another and that’s when my personal story begins.

Now I know there are some on this thread who know this priest, who know me. But I’ll risk it. For my priest never should have done what he did and I’m not sure I will forgive him.

Well I’ll probably forgive him because he did apologize profusely. I want him to stop apologizing and stop treating me bad, that’s what I want.

More, maybe, later.

I was hoping one of the talk head shows would have captured Rahm Emanuel to help us understand the "Chicago Values."

I think the dust up over a Chik-Fil-A business license in Chicago, and other Chicago news stories, truly unveiled the "true" Chicago Values.

The First Amendment is not welcome in Chicago. Free speech is only welcome if you believe the same things as the Mayor. The CEO of Chik-Fil-A did NOT come out AGAINST gay marriage, he simply stated his belief in one-man-one-woman definition of marriage. Ironically, Rahm - as Barry's Chief of Staff - agreed with his former boss opposing gay marriage, but that was before the election-cycle "evolution" of that position to shore up the base.

The Second Amendment is not welcome in Chicago. This issue is not about hunting, it is about protection from an oppressive government. Those in office are no longer afraid of - nor do they respect - those they are supposed to serve.

The Fifth Amendment is not welcome in Chicago - but that may be changing. Based on the Burge trial, Chicago is now north of $7M in payouts for wrongful arrests and convictions from the cops beating a false confession out of suspects.

Religious positions are imposed on Chicagoans with a schizophrenic fervor. You can't openly talk about support of traditional marriage, but a self-described Jew who is the mayor has invited the openly antisemitic Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam to "patrol" Chicago's streets. Maybe the Chicago Cops are secretly in favor of traditional marriage and can't be trusted to do their job to stem the flow of blood in the streets.

Scalia is VERY good.

ABC political round table continues focussing on the “gaffe” comparison - obama vs. Romney. I’m sorry, I just don’t buy that. Dana Loesch agrees with me. LOVE her! Donna Brazile takes on Dana about obama’s comments. Dana responds, roads don’t build businesses, it’s the other way around. lol, perfect.

WaPo commentor says obama’s comments were taken out of context. I read that speech. It was NOT taken out of context.

Maybe you can catch the repeats that are on FNC later on during the day. I know here it’s shown two to three times: noon, four and later in the evening.

There was NO Romney gaffe. Romney caught some problems that the English also caught later on but Romney knew the right questions because of his experience in the same areas. The media will claim it was a gaffe but I have not seen anything that said Romney was wrong.

And yeah, 0bama supports Israel as long as the Palestinians own their country and killing the Jews.

First, I might not especially like Romney but he did not say anything offensive when asked about the state of the Olympic surround (London).

It never ceases to disgust me when lib pundits, today Juan Williams, claim to be restating what a politician has said, and totally lie! (Misconstrue would be the polite word, but I am far beyond polite.)

Romney was ANSWERING a question of Brian Williams. He did not call a presser to criticize the London Olympics.

We all know that the same dncmedia would have criticized him if he had said, "... doing a great job, Brownie..." London cabbies did go on strike on Opening Day - how did that help the city to cope?

Good point. I’ve heard the same thing from numerous sources so I believe it’s true.

I live in a town of 14k population. About 10 years ago, Walmart built a new modified super store in a pasture about 4 miles away from their previous location.

Now, that whole section has built up with strip shopping centers, a new high school, a new hospital, several doctor/dentist complexes, a Lowes, etc.

That is how growth happens. None of it was the result of government/FED dictates. The government didn't build it; Walmart did. And the business growth followed.

So I take a picture of my priest talking to some politico or another. I did take lots of pictures and videos, mainly for a Blog post I plan to do.

Everybody was taking pictures and videos, let me make this clear. You couldn’t move without bumping into someone holding a camera/video recorder high so my innocent picture wasn’t unusual or anything.

When I introduced my priest, who I will call Father Sam, to some of the politicos (and there were a bunch, dear Lord, and don’t forget I am campaign finance treasurer for two of the guys so I wanted to give them a push) he was quite jovial. “I’m thinking that most of these politicians are not here for the real issue but are looking for votes,” he said to me and I joshed back in some fashion. Understanding that it was a fun, innocent kind of thing.

I chance to be taking some pictures of the church or some thing and Father Sam shouts to me, clear out of nowhere...”Pat, don’t you dare make this meeting a political function. Don’t you dare.”

He was not kidding when he shouted this to me and once again my head began to spin. As I stated on my earlier post, I had no idea all those politicos would be there though in hindsight I guess it makes sense. Those against Obamacare and its horrific attack on faith would vote for those mostly conservative types. And this was not a function limited to church parishioners; it had been advertised on the local radio (there were TWO reporters there from the local talk show and it was reported on extensively, the whole thing being a big deal in our burg except for the tourists maybe.)

So how on earth, just how on this earth could I possibly turn this huge rally into some kind of political event? I was just so confused that, in shock, I walked away and went up to the edge of Route 1, upset and wondering what I could have possibly done “wrong”.

to be continued, maybe.

I have been searching for some info I read recently which states that small business is responsible for creating 80% of the new jobs. And if they are left out of the tax cuts by the class warfare of the regime its equivalent to killing jobs.

All I can find with the search engines are msnbc crap, wapost stores, nytimes pap,its unbelievable just how biased our search engines are on the web.You get only the lefts view of things.
