“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Against all Hope, Abraham in Hope believed and so became the father of many nations just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”

We are now seeing what the liberals mean by fairness. For the past decade they have been yelling about how unfair the system was and they were going to bring about a fairer system. Their definition is that they decide how the game is played and they will define fairness. Now that they are in complete control they are able to use the power of the Federal gummit to punish those who disagree with them and reward members of their Party. The IRS scandal completely reveals their definition of fair.

We have had the Wall Street Occupiers declare how unfair it was for the hated 1% to have some sort of advantage and they needed the Feds to equalize that inequity. We have heard it from The Three Pillars (Academia, Media and the DNC) lecture us about how they would make the system fairer and now we see exactly what they mean. They were going to make it absolutely corrupt as they were always planning on using the gummit to punish their enemies and reward their allies in crime. This was first done by Hillary Clinton and now the same people are back and the Stalinists are simply doing what Stalinists always do, abusing their power completely.

This was obviously being coordinated out of the White House as well as Congress to shut down the voice of dissension. After the avalanche of the midterm election there was a fear in the DNC that they were going to be swept out of power and likely lose the Presidency. They used every agency at their disposal to destroy those voices through punitive discipline to cripple their ability to raise money to broadcast their messages like the liberal political groups do. This is their definition of fair when they have the power.

Anybody who actually believed they were into equality was simply being fooled. They are only into power and greed as well as the destruction of America. They craved the power of the IRS which was going to be their army of equalizers to punish the Republicans and especially the Tea Party. Once again they played their word games to fool their followers into feeling good about a terminology such as “choice” and perverted the term to their own craven use. Who could ever argue the word fair?

The Catholic Church has really been fooled by this term, although they call it Social Justice. This is another example of a term which sounds good in theory but in practice is something altogether different. This theology has been the rage over the past decade as the Church says that it is wrong for certain people to have advantages while there is poverty in the world. The main problem with Social Justice is who decides what is just and what is not? We are now seeing the reality of Social Justice and that is, those who are in the Party get gummit subsidies and favoritism while those outside of the Party gets roadblocks. Those who disagree with the Party are punished. Where is the Social Justice in this? Why are pastors and priests always fooled by these communist word games while these same groups are at war with the church?

We have seen these tactics used over and over again in every communist armpit around the world. They vilify the achievers while they scream about fairness for the workers to fool them into giving up their freedoms. We have watched these power crazed communists take our freedoms of religion, speech, press and nationalize industry after industry. There has never been a more centralized gummit than we have now and with the latest revelations of the IRS and spying on citizen phones we have an unprecedented ability to control the people. This is their definition of fairness.

The last refuge of a scoundrel is telling you it is for your own good. Obama’s excuse for spying on every Verizon phone and likely every phone was to protect us from terrorism. We are supposed to believe the most terrorist attacked President in our history, who left our Ambassador to die at the hands of butchers and then lied about it, is tapping our phones to protect us from terrorists? The only phones which likely are not tapped were Mooselimb phones since that would be profiling, but tapping Tea Party phones is stopping terrorism. You really have to be caught red handed to pull the terrorist card after spending five years not even using the word.

We are seeing a deeper and deeper level of a Police State under the guise of fairness. The use of the word can justify any action by rewarding those they deem worthy and restricting those they label unfair. They can take away all of our freedoms to make things more fair for their fairness goals and prop up the victims of the unfair such as Solyndra against the evil fossil fuels. This is a very subjective term and will be used promote the community good as they see fit. Anybody who is against fairness will be punished accordingly.

Phraseology is the primary weapon used by the Communist Party since nobody would go along with tyranny so fairness is one of their most powerful phrases. It is a term which nobody can argue, yet is subjective enough to allow complete domination. It is another way of describing the taking of wealth from the successful and giving it to their preferred groups who launder it back to them. It is a way to break down the Free Market and make it a more centrally controlled dictatorship. For the individual it is an excuse to track and monitor them in the guise of making things fair. The main problem with fairness is who decides what is fair and what is not. We are now seeing what Obama thinks is fair in the IRS, the Justice Dept, the Military, spy drones spying on your computer and phone. Every dictator believes he is the only one who can deliver fairness to his slaves. If he drops a few billion into his bank, it is only fair.

Pray for America to Wake Up

Shocked that Lindsay Graham didn't score a spot on any shows this week. Perhaps someone finally told him to stuff a sock in it. Diane "we must spy on everyone just in case they might become a terrorist in the future" Feinstein should be a treasure today.

Hiya AB! Thanks for all you do for the cause.

IF there was a real Press (and there is NOT since they
fawn, protect and defend those whom they are to report on)
they would focus on the facts.

Borders - open (check)
MANPADs - delivered to al Qaeda (check)
FAST&FURIOUS weapons - delivered to narcoterrorists (check)
20,000 felons - freed (check)
1 billion rounds ordered to kill Americans (check)
COLE terrorists - freed (check)
al Qaeda terrorists - defended, or freed (check)
Boston terrorists - warnings ignored (check)
Best target Maps - Delivered to terrorists (check)

Guns removed from Soldiers and Marines (check)
All Americans void of feedback from a Real PRESS (check)

I have always viewed Michael Hayden as a class act particularly when compared to others who have held the same positions that he has in the Intelligence Community.

I’m betting that most Freepers would agree.

I’m also betting that agreement will end today when Hayden shows up on Fox News Sunday where I fully expect him to defend the work of the NSA.

We do live in interesting times.

Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho) apparently walked out of the joint session on the immigration bill with the Senate's gang of 8.

Not to worry, Rep. Paul Ryan picked up the sword.

I guess he didn't see all the bleeding from Rubio, who also picked up the gang of 8 sword and rapidly fell upon it and then claimed he couldn't support the bill he helped write.

Paul Ryan endorses immigration bill after Labrador walks away

Well said.Perhaps the scariest thing about this regime is just how well planned it all was. They seemingly knew/know every move we will make and how we will react to every evil deed they perpetrate upon a once great Christian country.

Even now with scandal after scandal rearing their ugly heads if the regime is able to lie their way out of all or most within the next year and keep the MSM from front-paging any new ones near election time they may salvage some of their seats that they will ultimately lose.

Ultimately people want fair govt. and when a diseased form of communism tries to take over a once great country its survival is doomed from the start.

IMHO,We are now witnessing the self-destruciton of that diseased form of govt.

Even when we take back the Senate next year it will be with the knowledge that they have set so many traps for us while retaking power that it will be a near insurmountable task to reverse everything they have done.

But with God's help we will be up to the task.

Watched Atlas Shrugged Pt2 last night; that’s right where we are now. The only thing is there is no John Galt. If there is one, not seen him yet. We better have a machine to win 2014 and a large magnifying glass to expose the rats cheating like they did in 2012 but got away with it.

In short, President Obama is just about trying to run the country as a banana republic, especially when part of the definition of a banana republic is thus:

It typically has stratified social classes, including a large, impoverished working class and a ruling plutocracy that comprises the elites of business, politics, and the military. (from English Wikipedia)

At the rate our regulatory and tax laws are going, we ARE going to end up with a huge impoverished class and a small ruling elite.

it will be a near insurmountable task to reverse everything they have done.

It will take statesmen, not professional politicians. And I see very few who might rise to that stature.

Too many in Washington [both parties] want to maintain the status quo, because they are lining their off-shore bank accounts.

This Byotch was born in Dublin Ireland. Not sure if she is a dual citizen or just an Irish national.

She is married to the wack-job Cass Sunstein.

She has advocated USA invade Israel and a maintin a huge permanent peace-keeping force there to protect “Palistinians”.

She mocks Jews and their so called lobby. She is a major Trojan horse. Totally unfit to represent USA foreign policy (as are John Kerry, the Obamas and Susan Rice)

Not a conventional ‘banana republic’.

Because the US Congress as a reward
is IMMUNE from the corrupt, and normal Laws,
they pass (eg ObamaCARE/DeathCARE and
SEC Laws which they are free to ignore as they profit),
they routinely help the Treason of Obama/Holder/DNC.
They obviously hate normal Americans, as
they are just too busy cashing money from their
paper bags.

Worse, it is now clear that the Obama-Holder Mob uses
the NSA sigint to INFLUENCE elections, SCOTUS and
probably Congress. Like the IRS data, there is also a
direct line to Soros and probably al Qaeda.

Finally, the undocumented, founded on Pelosi-perjury,
Obama Mob-Moslem Brotherhood now has US Nukes
and what-is-left of US imprimatur making this quite
far from a conventional ‘banana republic’.

Well then I'm sure you will be watching him today. I'd be very interested in hearing what you think of his comments on today's FNS. It's hard for me to believe that he will side with most (99.9%) Freepers on the current NSA "scandal".

Time to place your bets on the Hayden response.

Glen Greenwold on ABC - Companies/govt should have public discussions on what access/what data should be collected.

Has not been contacted by anyone in the govt regarding any leak investigation - open to discussions. But, reminds George that there’s a thing called the Constitution, he has the right to freedom of the press....won’t be intimidated or silenced. Govt intimidates the Press/other Americans with criminal prosecution when they don’t want the public to find out what they’re doing.

George says govt says Glen’s source is a Double agent. Glen won’t confirm there is only one source. Govt always tries to demonize whistleblowers.

You should expect more revelations from Greenwold - woohoo!

It occurs to me that the only reason the IRS scandal is in a scandal in the first place is because legislation started with good intentions decided that our government would use tax status as a controlling factor in free speech.

As a result, the federal government agency (IRS) that is supposed to be full of eye-shade bean counters and responsible for collecting revenue and enforcing the rules related to revenue and income taxation is now the "GateKeeper to the First Amendment".

Left to it's own devices, the IRS should be focusing on the most improbable task assigned to man; taking the tax legislation developed with good intentions and (usually) economic ignorance, developing forms and instructions, and distributing information that will allow citizens of this country a fighting chance of being to complete an income tax return correctly.

Instead we are adding the task of administering Health Care rules to the "Freedom of Speech" duties this agency has to accomplish. And, oh, by the way, try to collect enough taxes to keep the country out of bankruptcy.
