Media meme of the day on Iran: “Historic.” “Game-changing.”
The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
So also, when we were children, we were in slavery under the basic principles of the world. Gal 4:3
As bad as Obamacare is, it is not the worst Marxist law we are living under. Marxism is simply a lie built upon another lie which results are blamed on the opposition. The only reason Americans are outraged by Obamacare is they can see and feel the direct pain it is causing them. Obamacare has been rolled out so publically there is no way to blame it on the Repubs, so the entire blame is sticking to the President and his Party. Other bills like the banking regulation bills or Global Warming regulations are not as easily hidden and Americans do not directly feel the monetary pain, but they are affecting Americans just as much if not more than Obamacare.
The entire Democrat platform is a lie, period. They pretend to be for the worker when they are only for absolute control and punishing those workers. They hate the free market and the middle class so they punish them over and over again in the lie of helping them. Just like Obamacare, they vilify a business such as the insurance industry and while punishing that industry the real whipping boys turn out to be the people who need and want those policies. These workers are going to have huge increases in their premiums and higher deductibles putting these peoples financial security in jeopardy.
This is the same tactic these Marxists used against the oil and gas industry as well as the power companies. They promoted the Global Warming lie through the Three Pillars (media, academia & DNC) and the people who are going to be hurt with the war on the Free Market are the working class. They attempted to close down the oil companies, but have been foiled by all the oil in North Dakota. Even with the unexpected discoveries domestically, if not for the moratorium in the Gulf and their restrictions in Alaska and other American reserves we would be enjoying gas under $2. This is costing American families thousands of dollars per year to punish the oil and auto companies. Marxism is all about keeping the working class enslaved to buy votes from the welfare class.
The same tactic was systematically done against the banking industry, lumber, housing, fishing, transportation and every critical industry that promotes the free market. The difference with this one is they are not able to hide it behind some obscure law or an unregulated regulating agency like the EPA. No Obamacare has his name all over it and is has been the cornerstone of the Democrat Party. This nightmare is attached to them like a goiter in a nudist camp. There is no hiding or covering this monstrosity of a healthcare bill or applying blame to anyone except Obama and the Dems. The only difference between this train wreck of a program and any one of dozens of Dem plans is it is completely exposed. Even more damaging is they know beyond a shadow of a doubt, their President knowingly lied to them, period.
Marxism requires blinding its followers with lie after lie after lie. It is a political system founded on a lie that it allows people freedom when as Obamacare proves, it controls and enslaves. Marxism requires central planning and control which is why everything is being focused on the District of Corruption. They are taking control away from individual banking, insurance and resource development and centralizing it into DC. After Obamacare is instituted there will be nothing in your life which will not be controlled by the Gummit.
The Dems have to lie since none of their ideas work outside of academia. They have these immense Marxist ideals of how people will work for free if it is for the better common good. It sounds good on paper as these naïve eggheads pull down six figures. They believe everyone else will work for the common good while they pull big money, prestige and generous pensions. So they build their theory on a lie to begin with and then use brainwashing methods to convince people their ideas work when they have no chance. The idealists actually believe in socialism while the pragmatists understand people like free candy and will vote for the candidate who will give them the most. Then you have the Obama, Bill Ayers wing of the Party who is only into punishing America and redistribution, they are the most dangerous of all.
Because they could never get the Repubs to go along with Obamacare it was left in the open and had to perform or would be a signature failure and is. Every one of their plans has failed equally as bad as this one it is simply the size and scope of this failure is magnified. It is magnified and affects every American negatively and cannot be swept under the rug like Global Warming failures. You cannot get a consensus to say Obamacare is working when it is so publically failing. They had their consensus media all ready to promote and defend it only to find it is even too big a boondoggle for the Marxist Media to lift.
Now is the time to connect the dots to the socialist failures one after another. While we point out the absolute monstrosity called Obamacare we need to say the same thing has happened to his energy program and the EPA restrictions. There is no reason to restrict the development of our domestic oil production other than some liberal extremists who have a problem with the car and the freedom it represents. There is no physical reason to restrict just as there was no reason to destroy everybodys healthcare plan. Neither one of those DC dictates will help Americans or the environment; they are only there to control and restrict Americans.
They have to show how Obamacare is as bad a plan as the stimulus program or the cash for clunkers program, let alone the GM buyout. All of Obamas plans have hurt America and we should point out there are some clunkers in the Congress that have a far too many miles on them. There is not a single plan which has been passed in the past 5 years that has had a better return than the Billion dollar website or the Obamacare program, it is just people have not been made aware of these fiascos. There is no difference between Obamacare and Banking, Auto, Stimulus, Energy, Coal or any of his punish America programs and should all be mentioned in the same breath. In a free and open media Obamacare would be the end of Marxist slavery in America.
Pray America is Waking
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
I am going to try and watch Sarah. The rest of the ‘guests’ never make any sense or tell any truths on a good day...and Sunday is no different.
Good post Bray. Interesting that silly “Cash for Clunkers”...why don’t the Repubs mention that folly once in a while? Sure is an example of how clueless these people are.
Morning AB....as always thank you for doing this thread, as always, dependably and reliably.
Singing at 10 am mass but am taping all the talk shows.
This morning I ponder this so-called “Knockout Game”.
FIRST....do not let the media call this thing a GAME!!! It’s assault and nothing less. These hoodlums are not tapping people on the shoulder and pretending it wasn’t them. THAT’S A GAME, just to help the media out a bit. Punching people or pushing them so hard as to knock them out is a FELONLY ASSAULT in most normal states.
I predict if this goes on through next week there will be a backlash, a big one. Cause if those thugs think they are going to do around just, boom, assaulting people for no reason but fun.....no human being’s going to take that sitting down. Gun sales are going to soar.
Forgive but I got to say the obvious.....where is Obama? Cause some of these thugs look just like his son if he had one.
Very true, and thus, very scary..
Bookmarking for future reference and acknowledging present reverence. ;0)
Question for the group. Has anyone seen Howie Kurtz’s new media themed show on FOX ( it airs at 11am EST)
Thanks for thread A.B. Obama’s oft repeated “promise” to Saudis and Israel that Iran would NEVER have nuclear weapons, was just yet another broken “promise” and LIE!
yeah..very thin today, FNC seems to have won this gab-fest.
the Iranian "deal" is a Wag the Dog..a distraction/@$ cover.
Well, Sarah at 2:00 pm makes it all worthwhile!!
Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if they cancel Sarah because of ‘breaking news’. It wouldn’t be the first time.
The part I like the most is you delineate that Marxism is little more than a lie built upon other lies. and Also, when the sh-t hits the fan its all our fault.
Truly great stuff bray.
Also,where does the 9 billion(obamcare diversion money) to fund zeros/Jarretts cave in with Iran come from?
There are such things as evil “games.”
I don’t think we should get too hung up over the nomenclature. We agree we don’t want this stuff going on.
We also should know that we need to spend MORE time towards God and less time beholding the evil. Yes, less. Because God already knows what the evil is, and as the heavenly Commander is already ready to send each and every one of His soldier children out on a mission to not just neutralize evil but establish goodness in its place. He doesn’t need our grand tacticians, except to recognize the wisdom of His plan and then obey it.
I”ve seen it a few times. Howie remains a “wannabe” IMHO.
Well I am quite hung up over what it’s called.
Your mileage evidently varies.
I am a sinner that I think beating on people is NOT a game.
Release of iran’s own assets that we have had locked up.
And here is my humble offering of a clue to how the successful battle will work.
We are in the midst of a battle of heaven versus hell, and people are involved only as far as what they choose. The person who chose hell yesterday may be on the brink of choosing heaven tomorrow. We know the system of exhorting people to do this as evangelism, but we should gladly break the boundaries of our stereotyped ideas of what evangelism is. Evangelism isn’t just sermons in a church, and it’s more than sidewalk ministries. It’s how we make faith in the biblical God appear every day. It’s looking for God to guide in taking advantage of strategic opportunities. We can always successfully address the devil as the Holy Spirit empowers and schedules, whether that means to rest in God or to confront the evil in active battle.
In general, seizing plunder from Satan’s curses into the realm of God’s blessing represents a re-purposing of resources from bad to good. Options for doing this were sharply limited in the Old Testament economy. The gospel greatly opens up the picture; God has made “all foods clean.” There is nothing, not itself a sin, that the enemy used that God cannot use even better. Take courage in this thought when waging the war, and you will think creatively in the vein of the Creator and Redeemer Himself. Turn the control for actually doing it over to the Lord, and watch the successes mount.
We can recognize how it looks from the evil side. I say please make every effort to get past it. You can call it a game in ridicule.
Truly great stuff bray.
Would add—I believe the Demoviks have already IDed their next economic takeover target, and it is the wealth tucked away in 401K plans.
The operation to sap this wealth is the ongoing QE bond buy-back program, which is creating the largest stock market bubble in history.
The bubble can be popped by a mere wink-and-a-nod from the White House to the Fed, at which point those who have shorted the market (Soros, et. al.)could take up to half of the 401K wealth.
Am I being overly hysterical? I hope I am.
But look at this super-heated stock market—which is trading not on any meaningful growth in the economy, or even the promise of growth. The top 20 percent (if not more) of the Dow and S&P is simply chasing fiat money created via QE.
Speaking of this filibuster thing....I got an opinion.
Y’all are entitled to my opinion and I give it willingly.
First, this so-called super-majority vote, it’s not in the constitution. This is a senate parliamentary procedure and there’s nothing wrong with having procedural rules. But once the majority can break the rules, as has been pointed out by Rush and others, there are NO rules.
THAT’s what the Dems did....they eliminated the rules.
I say leave it that way. Let a majority decide senate votes cause the Dems will fool around with this rule the rest of their lives....let a simple majority decide things in that House of Lords, it’s how the founders intended it to be. If Americans don’t like this, elect a majority in the senate....let’s not keep letting these Elites change the rules as they see fit.
WHEN the pubs get back in charge, THEY BETTER NOT CHANGE IT BACK!
THAT would be dumb.
But who accused them of ever being all that smart?
Got another thought on this....more later.
Basically, persisting in nomenclature battles will get OURSELVES fighting one another to our disablement, and everyone has his or her hot button. Apply the maximum charity and get past such things. The enemy doesn’t have charity, and so what? God does!
I think Obama’s in serious, serious trouble.
I think the Dems are chomping at the leash to be rid of this guy.
Oh they’re not going to impeach him; I doubt this will ever happen. I do think the Dems want to sit this guy on the bac k burner and hope to keep him quiet for the remaining three years he’s got.
For now, he’s got just a little bit of political capital left. The Dems want him to use it up while he can cause each passing week brings more bad news. Obamacare is NEVER going to keep better, it is the gift that keeps giving.
I know politicians lie, sure they lie, it’s what politicians do. But out here in la-la land where we carry this country on our backs we understand that constant lies have consequences. Politicians....the Ruling Elite Class....have no common sense. It didn’t occur to them that Obama’s blatant lying would come back to bite. Hell the Dems were all in on it too!
So they want to ram through his communist judges, hence the filibuster, and how about next year they’re going to move open enrollment by eleven days? Here we are a year away and they know already that they’re going to need those eleven extra days? Just enough to push it past the 2014 elections when the Dems know they’re going to get routed.
THAT particular move is another sure sign of Obama going down the drain. “Stay with me guys, and I’ll change the next open enrollment until after the 2014 election,” I hear Obama begging.
America is going to rise up over all these lies, it’s bound to happen, it’s happening now and will continue.
You are so right.
I am so wrong.
Well I got another thought on that too.
Recast your battle focus. Eph 6 is not woofing. It is the key that unlocks the door to a successful battle.
ANY human, today our enemy, could be our friend tomorrow (or at least relent from some of his hatred, and then he who is not against us is for us) for all we know. One can deal severely if required with opponents without bestowing on them the kind of indelible recognition for evil power that belongs only to Satan.
As Satan is forced to back down, people too will change. Grudges against people will greatly hobble us from capitalizing on the situation.
Guess what, Fish. I’ve been so wrong too in the past.
I don’t condemn you at all. God doesn’t.
God isn’t tying me down with my past. He has given me an inheritance of a beautiful future. And it sounds like He has given it to you too. Let’s use it to the maximum.
You seriously underestimate Reid and Obama duplicity...
He isn't going to give the pubs a chance to change it back because the when it becomes clear they will loss the Senate he will in the "name of fairness" reinstate the filibuster rule before he becomes minority leader...
There isn't a thing the pubs can do about it...
When the pubs take over the Senate and try this same tactic, you will never hear the end of the media and Reid and his minions calling it a power grab...and it isn't fair after all we changed the rules back....
...after they got done ramming down the Senate throats all sorts of left wing radical nominees and appointments...
Willful disobedience? You think we should forgive that? Forgiveness is a thing of the heart. Righteous indignation to those who willfully harm others for their own self aggrandizement begets consequences.
No Mc and Cheezy? Isn’t this the 2nd weekend in a row without their presence?
Considering that Grahamnesty seems to be in electoral trouble, I would have expected him to be showing up everywhere for the free publicity.
Dumbest trashtalkingpoint was earlier in the week when the Dems were claiming the failure of the healthcare.gov website was the Republicans’ fault because they are invested in the failure of Obamacare.
It is amazingly funny to watch Obama, Carney, and various Dems pretzel excuses to try to cast blame elsewhere. They are worse than little kids who get caught with their hands in the cookies jar and cookie crumbs on their lips and say they didn’t do it.
Dumbest Pubbie of the week:
McConnell ‘I am shocked, shocked! I tell ya, that Reid pushed the button the nuclear option.’
Now, McConnell is ‘fighting mad’ — at the Tea Party.
McConnell claims he will restore the historic filibuster rule when he becomes Majority Leader.
[Dumba**, they pulled that option, let them suffer under it, if the Pubbies do manage to become the Majority Party. And hopefully, if the Pubbies do manage to become the Majority Party, they will have sense enough to get a new Majority Leader with more backbone.]
If everything remains static in the spiritual battle, this would not be an unreasonable anticipation.
However I see a spiritual battle gathering here. God is possibly getting prepared for a fight with the devil like we have not seen, perhaps, in centuries. Maybe not yet the literal return of the Lord, but a return to a much wider acceptance of the Lord’s Spirit.
And it’s going to be a weird looking fight from a worldly point of view. People will be placed in positions where the need to choose good over evil will become crystal clear. They will frequently choose the good and be blessed, or else if they choose the evil then their stature will be reduced, temporarily if not permanently.
Christians’ part in this: be ready to share that Good News. God doesn’t want it hogged to ourselves. God knows we will get some blowback from Satan from doing it, but God will sharply rein that blowback in. It is only a training exercise. But the advance of goodness will be real.
God does, so we should. When the willful disobedience is stopped, even briefly, is our chance to win the soul.
You are pretending to be more righteous than God; trying to separate Christ from the agony He willingly suffered.
Will not work; you will get shunted aside in God’s plan if you try.
I apologize in advance for any words spoken by Senators or Representatives from my state of Maryland. They are unthinking, lockstep sheep.
The sub-title is Polar Bear Hunting.
MSM are avoiding it because it has a distinct racial component, and not the race of their preference. Notice that the MSM seldom mention the race of the perpetrators and any video is extremely pixelated.
IIRC, some 7 people have died as a direct result of Knockout-type assaults. That makes these incidents murders and attempted murders. State and local LEOs and prosecutors are going to have to step up before this ‘trend’ mushrooms out of control.
This guy lecturing me is serious getting on my nerves.
Leave me alone....I am a very bad person.
Now I must go to church.
If you think Iran is going to live up to the terms of the new considitions and not invest in nuclear technology for military purposes, raise your hand.
President Carter made major mistakes regarding Iran and the Middle East. Obama has made even more disasterous mistakes regarding Iran and the Middle East.
Obama continues to make Carter smile, as Carter is no longer the worst president of the last 100 years.
<< I think beating on people is NOT a game. >>
No, it is definitely not a game. And no pundit should ever refer to the behavior as a ‘game.’
If words were not powerful, there would not be a huge advertising industry to promote products.
Conservatives, too often (almost always), allow the leftists to control the language of any situation. One quick example: “government money” should always be called “taxpayers’ money.
but a return to a much wider acceptance of the Lords Spirit.
That my FReind is possible, but unlikely...the church for the most part has been compromised and / or marginalized by the left...after decades of attacks....every mainstream church has accepted the homosexual agenda in part or fully embraced it...
There will be a remnant...
“... the failure of the healthcare.gov website was the Republicans fault because they are invested in the failure of Obamacare.”
Consider this accusation a manifestation of the abusive husband blaming his wife for the fact that he hits her. And our elected Republicans are the battered wife - telling herself that if she is only nicer, tries harder not to upset him, etc, he will not hurt her again.
