“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

1 Samuel 17 Now the Philistines gathered their forces for war and assembled at Sokoh in Judah. They pitched camp at Ephes Dammim, between Sokoh and Azekah. Saul and the Israelites assembled and camped in the Valley of Elah and drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines. The Philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites another, with the valley between them. ...

Now the Coward in Chief is so desperate to look relevant on the world stage he has decided to drop a few bombs on some camels in Iraq. His next feat will be emptying the ocean with a teaspoon. Was he polishing his Nobel Prize when he ordered the dropping of bombs on Iraq, something he lectured Bush over and over against? The slavish media of course are blaming this ISIS or Islamic State army crises on GW, even though when he left office the country was relatively calm as was the entire Middle East. Iraq was won and only a stabilization force was needed like in Japan and Germany. Now we are seeing the fruits of destabilization by Obama and his Code Pink allies as the Middle East has gone from his Arab Spring to a raging inferno.

In his Marxist mindset it was fine when the ISIS SS were only killing Christians and chopping off their children’s heads or crucifying them for the crime of not converting, but when some cult called the Yazidis is attacked he needs to take action. Could there be a more naïve bunch of 60’s Marxists who think they can tolerate their way into peace when these animals only want the death of everyone around them. He either has no idea what the Koran says or is part of their cult and wants wholesale murder as long as it is murdering Christians and Jews.

This is the chickens of Obama’s hatred coming home to roost. That is the problem with intellectual maroons, they think they know more than anyone else and use their foolish Global Warming models only to find out the murder of tens of thousands is a byproduct of their idiocy. Ask all the piles of bones in SE Asia after we did the exact same thing in Viet Nam when we left to satisfy those same Marxists. We left behind a killing field that went for ten years and millions of deaths. We are seeing the same thing now in Iraq simply to satisfy his own over-inflated ego led by a few million pacifists who would not allow a stabilizing force to be left there. They needed peacekeepers to keep these thugs from filling the void like they are doing now.

They were warned over and over to pull out of Iraq slowly and wait until they could defend themselves, but these intellects knew better than anyone else. They were so mired in their hatred of Bush and his military solutions to the Middle East that they were going to pull out before the Iraqi army was ready. Not only did he leave them defenseless, he actively supported and militarized the splinter groups of ISIS in Syria, Libya and Egypt through the Muslim Brotherhood. This has nothing to do with George Bush other than the fact that by conquering and stabilizing the factions in Iraq there remained a deep hatred among the groups, but they put their weapons down. When Obama came in and announced the day he would pull out without any quick response troops left he invited this type of terrorist army to fill the void.

There is little doubt at this point that ISIS will take over Iraq and all of the oil that country owns. This can be the staging and training grounds for the most vicious army the world has ever seen as the Islamic radicals can have a country full of oil funds to finance their Middle East and then world domination.

We are watching Christians massacred in the most barbaric ways possible as children are raped, beaten and beheaded while their parents watch waiting for the same. What is their crime? They are Christian or anything other than the right kind of Mooselimb. This is what he fostered and instigated when he took out our troops while destabilizing all of the countries whose leaders he didn’t agree with. There is no Egyptian or Syrian army in Iraq that can fight these butchers and the Iraqis are now at the mercy of an army he marches with.

The army these people need was sitting in Baghdad with their tanks and air force waiting for something just like this to support the Iraqis army. The Iraqi people would have been safe and these barbarians would have never dared to take on the US army again. There would have continued to be a corrupt Iraqi gummit just as there always have been and likely always will, but the people would have been relatively safe. Now we are seeing massacres spreading across the Christian cities and churches being burned with no way of stopping it. We had out army on the inside of the country and a ten year agreement to keep them there and now they are outside looking in, due to one man; Obama the disaster.

The bigger picture is this is exactly how Trashcanistan will look in two years and it is possible that all of the small army countries could be destroyed by ISIS. They are not going to be happy with Iraq; they are on a holy war to eradicate the world of Christianity and Judaism. What is going to stop them from marching across the Middle East and taking out Jordan, Lebanon and Libya? This is going to be a well funded army led by fundamentalist Mooselips who are doing the will of Allah. What is to stop them from coming across our southern border?

Perhaps now he is seeing what would happen to Israel if they were left to fend for themselves. These same savages would be killing and beheading Jews as if it were Mardi-Gras. This is why they have to take out the Hamas weapons and should be given full reign to do what needs to be done even if those savages are putting children in front of their military weapons. Israel and the rest of the world is not surprised with the savagery of these people, they have lived with them for thousands of years. Only the Marxist Socialist self appointed intellectuals are surprised and are finally forced to take action no matter how feeble it appears.

A true leader would take stock of his decisions and admit his mistakes to try not to make them in the future. Now that he has bombed these “freedom fighters” who he supported throughout the Iraqi war, perhaps it is time to admit his mistake and try to not repeat the same one in Israel and Afghanistan. Perhaps it is time to realize Hamas and ISIS are the same army that would butcher the Israelis just as they are raping and slaughtering Christians in Iraq. This is a horrific mistake that a real leader would take stock and question his own world view or he can simply blame Bush and Bibi. His first step sould be to stop supporting barbarians like ISIS and Hamas and let Bibi protect his country.

Pray America wakes up

The biased, politically-directed “MSM” seems again
solely focused ONLY on those who support slavery
and the Islamic terrorist “rebels” (IS and al Qaeda
and Moslem Brotherhood).

When will conservative principles get a hearing?

Apperently NEVER before the “MSM”,
which continues to support Islamic terrorists,
including by only calling the Islamic terrorists,
with childrens’ blood on their hands,
and the childrens’ heads on their pikes,
as ... “fighters”.

Morning AB, All

Been an awful week but I’m okay, dogs are okay, life is okay.

I ask y’all to look up the term Münchausen syndrome and some day, not today and not even soon, and I will share a story that will blow your collective minds.

I even wrote a book about it.

Anyway, thank you AB for doing this thread, Bray for his thoughtful posts and RG for showing up every week. Thanks to the rest of you and your fine input as well.

I’ve taken to writing a “National Scene” post for my Delaware Blog (and more great stories some day about this) every Monday and, of course, I use this thread as source.

Take care and will be watching and opinionating.

It’s what I do.

Anybody here see that video of NASCAR driver killing that guy? Driver’s name is Stewart.

Man every liberal will be on TV telling us how NASCAR is full of Teabagger types and the sport should be banned.

Sometimes NASCAR drivers even get concussions.

I saw a video of it....come on....the kid...he’s only 20, gets out of his wrecked car AND STANDS ON THE TRACK FULL OF RACING CARS!

People die doing that!

Good thing the victim wasn’t black cause Obama would be out saying he looks like his son and how Stewart should be tried for mass murder.

Sometimes victims do really dumb things.

But I don’t think it a good idea for Stewart to race again today. It just really looks thoughtless.

Brilliant as usual.

Our regime is now helping ISIS in fund raising and recruiting brainwashed followers all over the world. They do it by limiting their air strikes on Isis which gives them a David vs.Goliath style image. It's Fidel Castro/Hugo Chavez on crack all over again. All planned by our regime to further chaos, help out their Sunni brethren as much as possible, while looking as if they are opposing the same.

Isis already has over 100 US citizens in their ranks about the same number of Europeans and who knows whom else from around the world.Hey if you are a criminal and told 'come on over we rape women,kill or behead or swindle our enemies, get rich and pretty much do as we want 24/7' it looks pretty good.

Sad thing is that six months ago they could have been taken out in a week.Now it would take two weeks but never mind since that ain't gonna happen.

As Judge Janine said last night 'zero has a problem going after fellow muzzies.'

The ISIS/ISIL set up has been going on for some time. They were kicked out of Syria since they had to go up against other terror types and don't like an enemy that fights back.

(Marc Ginsberg now on C-spam talking about Americans fighting for ISIS in Syria right now,little effort being made by this adm. to stop any of this.) This regime most likely through val/jar knew that if they failed to negotiate with al Malki of Iraq on leaving 25,000 US troops in Iraq as a peace keeping force that just what is happening now would happen. It was foretold and never in question.It was all planned.All they had to do was sit back do nothing and let it happen.They did.

So they failed to negotiate with Iraqi leaders in good faith and today we have ISIS running wild in Iraq. The excuse this regime will use is that they are simply part of a UN effort to stop ISIS and when they fail time after time it won't be the fault of the US but George Bush and the UN. Slick as usual.

By participating in limited bombings that have little effect time and again all that happens is that ISIS can fund raise and chum up other terror wannabees en masse. Neat little plan.

Stay cool Fish things will always get better.

Münchausen syndrome is a psychiatric factitious disorder wherein those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to themselves. It is also sometimes known as hospital addiction syndrome, thick chart syndrome, or hospital hopper syndrome. True Münchausen syndrome fits within the subclass of factitious disorder with predominantly physical signs and symptoms, but they also have a history of recurrent hospitalization, travelling, and dramatic, untrue, and extremely improbable tales of their past experiences.[1] There is discussion to reclassify them as somatoform disorders in the DSM-5 as it is unclear whether or not people are conscious of drawing attention to themselves.[2] In the current iteration, the term “somatoform disorder” (as used in the DSM-IV-TR and other literature) is no longer in use; that particular section of the DSM-V has been renamed “Somatic Symptom and Related Disorders”. Officially, Münchausen syndrome has been renamed “Factitious Disorder”, with specificity either as “Imposed on Self” or “Imposed on Another” (formerly “by Proxy”).

OMG its describing Nancy Piglosi!

I think you’re right RG.

Come on, a bunch of thugs join together to start a THUGATHON and America can’t stop it?

I pray every day that this administration does, or does NOT do, something that will incense the public.

I’m thinking Obamy granting amnesty to millions of illegals might just be the thing but hey, they’re falling on Israel and Americans, even the LO FO voters aren’t going to take kindly to a bunch of hoodlums acting like they’re some kind of army.

The Lamestream, I need not say, should be profiling these hoodlums, giving them the publicity they wan t.

But no.....no.

I’m not real sure I understand your sig line. Care to expand?

Heh, you got the Munchausen syndrome right.....I got a story that....well anyway...

I wrote a book about it! Wrote it in 1998 but had to give up all rights to it by my daughter or she would never allow me to see my granddaughter again. So she told me.

So I gave up all rights, burned all my copies of the book, such was my terror. Daughter always bribes me by granddaughter thread, don’t think she’d ever do it.

So I check into Amazon, the book was copyrighted in 2005 and IT’S SELLING!

The book is fiction, titled “Attention, Please”, it’s fiction but there are characters in it from my own life, not uncommon for writers. My publisher evidently kept the rights to my book and put it on Amazon!

Heh. Well I meant well.

Look it up....the plot is about a woman who catches a presidential candidate, looking like about to win, molesting a child.

She tries to get someone’s attention and no one will do a thing about it.

So she does something desperate.

I sat this weekend and read that entire book and first, IT’S A GREAT BOOK!

1998....I wrote in 1998, when my daughter was 21. Now she’s 37 and it’s the same old, same old.

Yeah, she made me destroy the book (I told her I did but I didn’t).

It’s a good book, seriously.

Anyway, the story is bizarre. In fact, the protagonist writing the book states plainly that she wrote it just to tell the story of her daughter.

Ain’t making this up.

I might have to write another book. And this time I will make sure daughter gets a copy.

Exactly the game seems to be just how much do the have to do to enrage the far right into doing something stupid so they can change the entire game into what we do instead of what they have done.

It's a win win strategy for the regime as well. If we don't react they keep going further and further into the world of communism and destruction of the US--worldwide chaos-- and if we do react they will win. This is the slickest regime ever to be in office.

The lamers in the lamestream m. are still trying to cast the whole thing as “sectarian” violence and some are still buying it. I’ll tell ya one thing about those Sectarians, they’ll go halfway around the world to kill their “neighbors.” And they say the Baptists are fervent!

Here the weekly take from “Jaibones” over at Hot Air,priceless as usual.

Welcome to the DNC Media Propaganda Hour, kids! Join the DNC Media for all of the (lefty) opinions that Americans need to hear as we survey once again the wreckage brought on by the foreign policy stupidity of O’Bozo – the Clown President – in his spot-on reenactment of the Jimmy Carter Presidency.

This week we get the now-almost-boring-routine of laughing at O’Bozo and yet another stunningly predictable disaster resulting from his stupidity and juvenile politics. We will be joined by Diane Feinberg, Greasy Joe Blivet, and any number of O’Bozo’s fellow Democrats as they second guess his judgment, his grasp of military concepts, his honesty, his sanity, his work ethic … (etc., ad nauseum)

Let’s have a gander:

“Meet the Press” on NBC
• Dick the Weenie Durbin – Kook Left Fringe
• Peter King – Good grief, really? RINO
• Donna Edwards – Kook Left Fringe
• Moderator – Activist Liberal

NBC – Nothing But teh Crazy

“Face the Nation” on CBS
• Jack Reed – Kook Left Fringe
• James Jeffrey – Career Foreign Service (Liberal)
• Bob Woodward – Liberal Journalist
• Carl Bernstein – Kook Left Fringe
• Moderator – Immoderate Liberal

See a pattern beginning to emerge?

“This Week” on ABC
• Carter Ham – Best just to say NA.
• Moderator – Immoderate Liberal

Is ABC really going to spend the whole hour wringing their hands over PTSD and ignore the actual news? Really?

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• Lindsey Graham – RINO
• Ben Cardin – Kook Left Fringe
• Chris Coons – Kook Left Fringe
• John Engler – RINO
• Moderator – Liberal Journalist

Four shows come and gone, and not a single lonely voice that anyone could mistake for an actual conservative.

“State of the Union” on CNN
• John McCain – RINO jackass
• James Jones – NA (40 years in Marine Corps, Iraq duty … then flushed it all with NSA under O’Bozo)
• Zalmay Khalilzad – Afghan Muzzie and GWB’s token to the Religion of Pieces – NA
• Moderator – Activist Liberal

And the beat goes on.

“Political Capital” on Bloomberg TV
• Kelly Ayotte – RINO
• Steve Israel – Kook Left Fringe
• Moderator – Activist Liberal

“Newsmakers” on C-SPAN
• Tim Phillips

For the love of all that is right … finally … Conservative

“Al Punto” on Univision
• Rand Paul – Libertarian (Despite his immaculately conservative voting record, I can’t say it.)
• John Brennan – Crooked D.C. insider and spook

Summary: I honestly don’t remember a week this pathetic, but during the week when O’Bozo’s political raison d’etre is crushed like a sissy European cigarette on the flight deck of the Abraham Lincoln during GW Bush’s Mission Accomplished declaration? If this isn’t propaganda, then it doesn’t exist.

The world is aflame, O’Bozo is definitively exposed as a nitwit, a liar, and a joke … and there is exactly one conservatives brought into the discussion to point this out, plus a handful of the same old-same old Sunday Morning RINOs, the activist Democrat/Liberal media tools, and the kookiest of the Kook Left Fringe.

Say goodnight, America.

CHRIS COONS! I got a Chris Coons story.

I have a Part D prescript plan that allows you, as most do, to “pre-order” your meds at their site. I just click on the box that says something to the effect “click here and your scips will automatically be refilled and mailed to you.”

Been doing this for years, works well for me.

Except last time I went to doctors my blood work was amazing, so said the doctor. “Let’s cut out your Tricor,” Doc said.

Only thing, on that very day my next three months scrip of Tricor was mailed out and I couldn’t get a hold of the part D jerks to stop it.

“Too bad,” they told me.

Trico for three months cost ME about $175.00 so I lost that money!

But wait! It gets better!

For the cost to me is only 35% of the cost so the REAL cost-so they say- is almost triple that. And you get charged what the TOTAL cost is before going into the donut hole. I am, every year, over the limit and have went into that donut hole to a cost of a couple hundred bucks.

I get samples and all from my docs to avoid this but this time I have no choice.

So not only have I lost the $175, at year end I will go into donut hold with the almost $600 bucks this scrip cost.

So I wrote mine Senator Chris Coons a letter and goodness they all got back to me cause I sent a letter to everyone.

Coons’ people called me back, asked that I get a copy on my doctor’s letterhead that my doc did, indeed, stop the scrip. They couldn’t get me back the $175 but the Coons people thought they could help with the donut hole thing.

Well they couldn’t. I just got a letter from them saying...TOO BAD!

I mean, come on, this Part D company allows me to pre-order and I would return the pills.

TOO BAD is what they so.

I MUST BE PUNISHED! I must be punished to the tune of over $800 cost to me!

Coons’ people couldn’t help.

Also, since Coons talks about corporations....come on...Delaware is the home of corporations...or used to be.

Now they all leave because hey, it’s Delaware, run by Democrats like Coons right into the ground.

This past week I had to drop Bank of America for they have NO branches in Delaware!

Had BOFA since 1988, don’t especially like them but routine and all that. Don’t hate them either.

Bank of America will not set up in Delaware because, as they told me....”Delaware is too destructive to business.”

Heh.

Now Coons is some kind of business expert?

Dan, I dunno, maybe you’re right.

I disagree....this is not a over-reach of political correctness.

He accidentally killed that kid.

Could YOU go out and race had that happened to you?

Maybe I’m not a race car expert but it’s just a tactless thing to do.

Trust that even if he does race I do not care. But you can bet the libs will out and boo-hooing about the thoughtless NASCAR drivers.

I’m done.

Say goodnight, America.


Well stated. O is letting the invasion continue with his lack of border control.

He’s been exposed as a fraud with his & Ms. Reset buttons handling of Russia, and now his focus on “ just win the elections” regardless of home & world consequences is showing through.

Meanwhile, unlike what happened with GWB, the MSM lets him flap his jaws about lack of intelligence.

Hey Barry. That applies to you.... not the people who probably saw this coming
who you ignored , and will now scapegoat.

DDD Dirty Dick Durbin only Iraq can save Iraq. But no mention of how zero slyly, methodically made sure that a recommended force of 25,000 would be left in Iraq to prevent just such crap that is going on now. DDD trying to spin how it all happened. With no peacekeeping force left in Iraq all the good GW did over the years is thrown away just what the regime wanted. Also helps the Sunni onslaught by ISIS which is also what the regime wants.

Limited air strikes play right into the hands of ISIS. It gives them that David vs. Goliath look and chums up terror wannabees all over the world which is just what is happening.
Rep. King/NY getting it right for a change will wonders never cease!!

King started getting waaay too much traction so DNC Dave got rid of him really quick and put the commies back on.

Problem is if the msm meme goes to ISIS other scandals—border,ebola,IRS,Benghazi, go to the back burner. So once again the regime has set up a win- win- win scenario no matter what we do.

Looks like a bigger monster than bin Laden is coming soon. Al Qaeda may have just been the prelude of bigger evils to come.

Robin Wright saying we solved the military problem in Iraq but not the political. She forgot to say we didn’t even try.

It’s how those Arabs do.

What you have is a bunch of sons of camels with no particular talent except their ancestors were in charge of the oil fields.

So the population has no discernible middle class and they can’t have any kind of army as armies tend to turn on people.

The only way the sons of camels can keep their power is to harness the restless “class” of commoners-everybody who is not involved in oil- in the form of terrorism.

In fact those Muslims came over here many years ago and began to recruit Muslims from the jails and the disaffected black folk of the era.

It is how Valerie Jarrett first into all this and some would say Barack. They get the academic nothing-burgers like Ayers and send a couple of those punks to college, teach them community activism and how to steal elections.

Put a thug in charge of the justice department and we got our own little nest of wannabe terrorists right here in America.

I mean come on, give me a couple of weeks and I could recruit you a whole bunch of nothing-burger thugs because hey, for reasons of genes and environment, some humans are born with a need to kill. It’s small matter to find them, every country has them.

This is what this ISIS is but come on, Obama, in a fashion, is one of them.

A bunch of thugs taking over Iraq. How sad is that?

F.Chuck saying zero is giving a poll perfect policy of non-intervention. Trouble is its a gutless move by a supposed leader.
Rich Lowry saying zero abandoned the war in Iraq gets shouted down by all the other commies on the roundtable—too good.Quickly back to F.Chuck reigning possiblity to replace DNC Dave.

ISIS says they’re going to fly their flag over the WH. I contend that while their actual flag isn’t flying, they already are via the ‘I’m for anything Muslam’ terrorist-enabling current occupant.

Makes me wonder, again, how many Africans died because the USA abolished DDT? Supposedly well meaning liberals decided it was horrible stuff so let them die.

Funny now, as Rush pointed out, we are refusing to give the ebola anti-virus to people in Africa. For their own good no doubt.

I’m not saying he’s stupid but 0bama IS unqualified to be a real executive and he’s ignorant of how business works or how to run a government. Then again, he’s still a typical Democrat doing his thing.

Newt explaining why its foolish to try and impeach zero instead of out-thinking him.He explains how when zero EO’s amnesty after labor day just have the House do a bill to oppose it and let the dems explain why they are against it until Nov.
Then the first of the year we cut of all money when we get the Senate. Brilliant as usual.
Newt has been red hot all week making appearance after appearance on many media. Looks like he may be running.

Hello Fish

The issue is not weather the driver chooses to race or not.

The issue is that we, and this is the PC part, automatically RECOMMEND/SUGGEST he not race.

I used to coach little people soccer. I am aggressive, and I demand that everyone give 100%.
My wife does not like this, many people do not like this - But life demands you give 100% or suffer the consequences.

Soccer is like that. IF you play hard you MAY win, but if the other team had better players, even thou you played your best you still loose. - No shame in loosing IF you give 100%

The PC part is NOT asking everyone to give 100%

FWIW, ABC was pretty good this morning. Some comments about how arming rebels to fight other rebels in Syria can't work. The blame for letting things get so bad was put on Obama. There was talk about there has to be a moral imperative to using US forces, and how regime change has been a disaster. One panelist (and nobody disagreed with him) actually said we should talk about how so much of our warring is about oil. Everybody agreed that stopping ISIS would be with Obama for the rest of his administration. They weren't minimizing that ISIS was commiting genocide.

I got the feeling that Martha Radditz really felt it on a personal level that the situation should not have reached this point.

There were no Obama cheerleaders on that show this AM.

I understand every word you wrote.

And it gives me pause.

I still don’t think I could race at my best (or do whatever talent at hand should I kill someone in a competition if you get the drift) had I killed someone. But then you would consider me not giving my best and you would be right.

Then I’m a woman so that might matter.

Maybe if Stewart were to say something, not exactly, but JUST WHAT YOU SAID....it would be great?

Take a stand, pitch the argument.....hey, I’d be cheering.

Anyway.....interesting development here. we shall see.

I consider Steponallofus one of the best talk show hosts around. Yeah he’s a lib but I hear he don’t like the Clintons anymore and again, of them all.....he’s going to be hosting Meet the Depressed soon.

My prediction.

I saw an article Newt wrote on his website last week. He didn’t pull any punches. Newt has his “weaknesses” as many are quick to point out, but I’ve always liked the guy .... and he is brilliant.
