Article on the book written by Wallace’s final guest, Mark Leibovich. Apparently he does to Politico and Politico readers what Politico does to non-”mainstreamers.”
The coming dominoes would certainly present a problem. I don't see an answer, other than a healthy haircut to existing pension plans.
The US Media are completely gone. They all have become part of the propaganda wing of this Administration.
So True. But for this site and some others we would never get the facts regarding what we are facing.
The TV reality show, star wannabe gawkers, only believe what their uniformed friends tell them, or what the MSM passes for “ real news”
Throw in Ellen, The View, etc... and no wonder we are in our current state of decline
“8)hillary will be anointed.”

Wanna know something scary? She may be the next socialist president if you don’t forward this to everyone that you know.
Stop calling them socialists or progressives, they are communists. There is nothing progressive going back to 1925 Russia.
We play nice with our language and they call us Teabaggers.
Pray for America to Wake Up
No need to be snarky. You raise valid questions.
With almost 50% of the population on G’ment welfare, the question I have - When will “most” of the working population roll over and stop producing?
Thanks for the thread AB. I’m watching The OPEN Championship so I won’t be watching the LSM talking heads. But I’ll be monitoring this thread to stay informed of any stupid comments by the liberals and RINOs.
Regarding people being fed up with their local Republican representatives.
The Madison Project has a list that rates their Republican reps. based on the “safety” of electoral results.
In my case Rep. John Culberson - a member of the powerful appropriation commitee
Like most members of the Texas delegation, Culberson evinces the image of a solid conservative, but his 2011 record, at least on fiscal issues, showed otherwise. As one of the 12 Cardinal members of the Appropriations Committee, Culberson voted against numerous opportunities to cut spending. He voted against the promised $100 billion in cuts in 2011, cutting spending levels to pre-Pelosi era, and eliminating farm and green energy subsidies. While he did vote for some spending cut amendments, he also voted for the Big 3 sins of 2011; the debt ceiling, omnibus, and minibus.
These votes were enough to earn him a -23 index for such a conservative district. It should be noted that he has amassed a pretty strong voting record so far in 2012. If he keeps it up, he may even improve to the hall of fame in 2012.
NO, I will NOT vote for this BIG G’MENT slave master
Well said! Are there any FReepers that can't afford $5 or $10 per month to help us out?
When will people have enough of the IRS and quit paying taxes? They can’t put everyone in jail.
Pray for America to Wake Up
I got 100%
In my book, Clarion Call, I have the protest come in the form of a massive work stoppage.
With a slew of twists and turns.
I wonder how Wesley Snipes feels these days. Recently got out from one of Obama’s BIG HOUSEs for Tax evasion.
Would this classify as black on black crime :) just wondering
With all the discussion about the city going into bankruptcy, I am not hearing anybody explain how the unemployment rate in Detroit is only 18%. Sounds like a statistic of convenience.
I thought for sure it was Obama. He’s let slip his leftist nonsense repeatedly. I wasn’t aware of it quite as much from Hillary. Although in my own defense, I try to ignore her as much as possible!
I think I will have time to read it today and see if I can find my character. Are you having fun writing it and is the story forming in your head?
I got a great review from a friend the other day who says he will help me market it when it comes out. He has some very interesting connections. He is a third of the way in and really enjoying it.
Bray, have you talked to Mike Dubrasich of Give Us Our Land Back? His group is pushing to have the Feds give the land back to the counties. I haven’t seen much from him lately, but that’s an effort that’s certainly worthwhile.
Got lots of people reading it. Oh you are in it Bray.
The story is about an uprising of the American people and how they turn the country around.
Not trying to make best seller. I’m a Blogger and this book is available through my Blog. It’s more meant to be a lesson-teacher than anything.
Some people reading it.....you know me, I sit here and write and write and don’t much care of anybody reads it.
Bailing out detroit would only perpetuate a new round of capitalism,the regime does not want that. Besides the only people left in Detroit are already obabma voters. He does not want to have to buy them again over and over.
It is interesting the guy who spoke in front of me brought up the counties are supposed to own the land and not the Federal gummit. I came up and hammered it home that a state like Oregon should be the Texas of the west. Our forests are an untapped resource that is like TX not drilling their oil.
We should have full employment with the resources we have. There are around 25,000 square miles of forests being left to rot which need managing.
Pray for America to Wake Up
I guess those Economies of scale have limitations. No point in spending your limited resources on people who are already in your pocket
Yes, I wrote to our legislators that if they wanted to do something for our economy, they should send a delegation to DC to demand the Feds release our lands. The whole of western America should be working on this.
Thirty years ago I would have agreed. Not today. we don't have that luxury of time. In another two election cycles we can lose the rest of the country the left has not already destroyed or taken.Zero has created over a thousand EO's that all need to be canceled. Looks like we will need all three branches to get that done alone. And, that's just the tip of the iceberg! We have to wage a better war on rinos, get rid of their sorry asses and put conservatives back in charge in the party and be dam careful who we back in office from now on. That's why I want to know what Liz Cheney's take is on immigration. So far nothing from her on that issue. Bottom line we need to take over the Republican Party not try a third party.
Perhaps the Repub Party is impossible to take over. What does it stand for and what is its ultimate goal? Now may be the perfect time for a third Party which could take Conservatives of both parties and unaffiliated.
Since they insist on losing anyway, what difference would a third party make?
Once again trying logic against liberal/commies,better “in your face” its what they understand.
For us its hard to understand how a political party is willing to watch a city go all the way down to nothing rather than the unions give concessions or take a pay cut. The unions are willing to go jobless rather than give concessions! That’s not bargaining that’s ally achbar like the muzzies,going down with the ship in the name of allah! or in a word “stupid.”
Post the link again and when I get back from church I will read some more. I want to see who this Bray character is.
clinton broke chris with his bent finger in the face trick... live on fox. chris never recovered. Plus... his dna is hard left mixed other with mental illnesses. The ONLY thing fox has going for it... is it is slightly better than the rest... but only sparingly!
Best wishes for every success against these local tyrants. America has become a country of king, lords, and serfs. A political "binary system." "Ones" (the ruling class) and "Zeroes" (us).
;-) I just have to find a way to stop all this holding back stuff! :-)
I am praying hard bray and GOD bless you! You are a true Patriot!
I just don’t see the pathway,the map,the funding, how long it takes,and no one seems to have a plan.
I really think we have waited too long.
IF it were 1985 or even 90 I would say go to it. But now things happen at warp speed. In 2006 when we had just run surpluses. Did you or I ever dream we would owe 16 trillion headed to 20 by 2016? It was not even on the horizon. Few ever dreamed this obomination could ever happen.If we get Hillary it could be twice as bad.
I don’t see a viable plan for a third party.And no one has shown me one.
And,once again you are absolutely correct. These people are not socialists. They are hard core commies! We should make no mistake about any of that.
Dam I’ll take a dozen X-large!!Just too good!!
There are both advantages and disadvantages to considering a 3rd party.
We have heard for over a decade that the best course of action is to take over the GOP from within. How has that worked out? Dole. McCain. Romney. Possibly Bush3.
Recall how Boehner, who just barely escaped losing his speakership, turned on the conservatives and demoted several committee chairpersons.
Several potential minor parties already exist. They, however, tend to be ‘family owned’ or limited issues parties. Few ever even win a local election.
George Wallace’s American Party and Ross Perot’s Reform Party were the only two to make much headway in the last 50 years. They were driven, however, by their founders. When those founders basically took a seat, their respective parties fell apart.
Could a ‘real’ conservative party make it? Considering that many ‘blue dog’ Reagan Democrats do not like the leftist direction their party has been going for two dozen years, and considering the conservative Republicans have a similar problem, imagine what might happen if they united.
A ‘real’ conservative party might have a change. Of course, it would have to be wary of the self-interests who would try to insert themselves in it and take over. The unofficial Tea Party groups have experienced that, as did the Reform Party.
But, something has to be done or we will end up with more of the same. And that has resulted in racial divide, disastrous unemployment, sluggish economy, etc.
The Whigs and early Republicans probably had similar discussions.
Really good interview. Instead of talking "compromise" he talked about NOT compromising conservative views. He said in one clear sentence why a "pathway to citizenship" is a bad idea. He showed humor, intelligence, clarity, and no need to pander.
Not only is he helping his own future, I think he's making it easier for others to embrace constitutional conservatism. He even gave Rubio an opening to repent and save his integrity, I thought.
LOL,yeah I have the same problem...
I completely agree!!
I do not see much difference but the minutia around the edges. The only people representing America in government today are the ones that the gop/e and others attack as FAR RIGHT.. Bible Thumpers as we are called... Clinging to our Guns as they say... same as the rats... oh and we are all looking for perfection... ALL lies about us... just like their leftist brethren in the rat party. rat or rino... both lead to the end of America as we know it. I'd rather fight evil in both parties and go down with my boots on than to just bow at their alter. My knees bend for JESUS only... I also love my republic MORE than I love myself. I am NOT alone... not even on this thread. There are others like me that have become enlightened and the gop/e shell game no longer works on us.
It isn't like we aren't giving the gop/e another last chance... the only difference... there are enough of us that if they screw us again... it will be their last chance. FREEDOM PARTY BABY! The time has not yet come... most of us pray it never does... but it may come and soon.
I don’t think tour hopes for a third pary would be so much with disgruntled dems,most of them left and are now with us or npsa(no party affiliations). But more with the indys, middle of the roaders who are just so pissed off with both parties they became independents. Trouble is they are usually not what you would term “activists.” The pathway to get there is ...well way over my head. I can’t think it through at this late date.
Since I have been posting this thread beginning in 1998, I have seen a steady increase in the partisanship of the mainstream, driveby media. Part of what we do here on this thread is to document the abuse, lies, distortions, omissions, biased guests selection, no follow up questions to those the host favors (democrats/RINOs), grilling of those they disfavor (Conservative Republicans), etc., etc.
I don't know how we can possibly overcome this. It just gets worse over the years. Consider the Zimmerman/Martin case if you want to see media bias in action.
All I can say is considering my screen name, the End Times have to be just around the corner! (Revelation 18: 9And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, 10Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come).
Dr. BEN Carson is a great man. He did a good job making the Black Congresscritter look petty and small. He has my respect.
Didn’t miss it... I know our enemies well. I even know where and from whom the obama campaign (that never stops) got their “Forward” from. Great to see it all posted. Even FReepers need a refresher course from time to time. Dead on!
And the 53 already existing "third parties" hold none of them.
That's crazy talk and you have no plan.
Morty Zuckerman thinks Obamas comments on Travon martin was his “Lincoln Moment” LOL
