The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV
Everyone asks how it is I can pick winners and losers in election after election? Yes, I picked Bernie to win this one and Hillarys, but never saw the DNC going to such extremes to make sure that did not happen. It takes real skill to choose the worst candidate out of 20 contenders, but they found a way. It is simple to predict, just go against the experts and you usually come out pretty good since they base their predictions on emotions while I base it on reading the people. This is how I have predicted the last six presidential elections and Trump will be the seventh as well the most obvious.
When some of us were predicting Trump winning the last election we were laughed at and scoffed for making such a rediculous prediction. What told me he was going to win was when he gave his escalator speech saying he wanted to close the border and Mexicans were not all saints and angels. I had been telling people for a decade the people believe that but are bullied into not saying it. Every campaign manager in America told their candidate to avoid immigration like the third rail. This is why I realized those so-called scientific polls were off by 5-10% from a shame factor. The same methods are being used for the virus.
Science has been completely corrupted by politics. This is why the Corona virus has been exaggerated and politicized into a worldwide epidemic when it is most likely a bad flu bug. Now every politician including Trump must pretend it is the Black Plague in fear of being vilified for every death it causes. Politicians have managers who tell them how to act, speak and think so the media can cause as little damage as possible.
The more time goes by the better picture we will have of this disease. If it had occurred under any other presidency it would have been minimized if not ignored. There are politicians claiming somewhere between 1-2% of all Americans are going to die from the disease and thank God the numbers are coming closer to fraction of that number. A regular flu season averages between forty and a hundred thousand while this one being so late in the season is doubtful it will top any of those numbers.
What we are seeing on TV is an exaggeration of the truth.
The temporary hospitals and morgues are due to the refusal of regular morgues and hospitals wanting to infect their buildings and patients. The shortage of respirators is due to using it as an early therapy which most flus do not require. These look good on the screen but do not tell the whole story of Corona.
Now we have Trumps Corana task force member Deborah Brix divulging the models for the virus was not only wrong they were criminally fraudulant. She said the new models are a minor fraction of what the earlier predictions were claiming. The models the World Health Org was going off said there would be a half million Brits and over 2 million Americans killed by this outbreak. The new Stanford models are predicting 20,000 British deaths while too early to predict US losses but far lower than these extreme numbers.
As it turns out the Chinese have as bad a numbers as America does thanks to the Dinosaur Press. They hide the truth for different reasons but have similar goals to keep the people blinded to the truth. There is no question there is an aggressive disease spreading across the country, the question is is it bad enough to close down the country for more than a couple weeks?
The other problem you have is people are looking for politicians to solve this issue. You are axing people who have never solved a problem in their lives to suddenly change their spots. These men and women have a history of destroying everything they touch are suddenly going to fix the unfixable. This is like asking a Great White Shark to stop eating seals.
America and the world are fortunate to have President Trump in charge. Unlike the politicians who lie with conviction as we saw with the Pelosi Green New Deal bill,
Trump does not play political games. He sees an issue and goes about solving it. He speaks plain English and is not afraid to delegate the responsibilities without hesitation. He understands the importance of spreading to work rather than centralizing which goes against everything Moscow on the Potomac stands for. These mdiots used to swoon over the fact that their leaders would solve every issue with superior knowledge and intelligence when it was usually just the opposite.
Rather than circling the wagons on both sides and doing what is right for America you have the same people resisting and dividing for their own political gains. You have Pelosis Odd Squad putting up the Green New Deal to fight the epidemic while stuffing it with pork and voter fraud as her answer to people dying and losing their jobs. She is the last person to have to worry about losing her job or her house. No, it is more important to push their fake Climate Change than solve a real epidemic that has the entire world shut down.
Does the media really think America has not wised up to their gotcha politics? It may have worked somewhat under Reagan and Bush I, but the United States is fully aware what the agenda of the Three Pillars (Academia, media and DNC} and are not being fooled. They have exposed their hatred of Repubs and love of the DNC to the point of becoming laughable at their seriousness.
To watch the kneejerk reaction by the Beltway of Corruption using their tired clichés and feigned concern is comedy if it wasnt so serious. They are so good at solving imaginary problems and invented doomsday inventions they have no idea how to solve an actual crisis with real lives at risk. None of them can see outside their own little silos and have no compassion for everyday people. There is only one person in the entire city who thinks and does just the opposite. We are fortunate to have President Trump handling this disease even if the entire city is trying to destroy him so they can destroy you.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Below are the words from my daily political diary. It is quite long so scroll on by if not interested. But do stay around and add your commentary and point of view to the thread.
Thoughts and flashes of brilliance that enter my head from nowhere.
Enjoy. Or abhor, depending on the effect of my "wisdom".
The worst political and inappropriate snark of this year came from Hillary Clinton.
News was that the United States was now the highest in corona virus cases, as of this writing beating China and Italy. Of course the U.S. is four, five, six times more populated than those countries and note that those countries beat us handily by deaths caused by the virus.
Hillary puts out a sweet and loving tweet: "Well he's always said he wanted America to be first".
Man I ain't stopped laughing all night that woman is so damn clever.
Her hatred knows no bounds.
I am going to pray for her that somehow she finally finds happiness.
Heh. Those two do really look alike.
A contestant of a popular Afghan talent contest TV show Salam Maftoon looks a lot like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his fans and followers are surprised at the resemblance.
Several pictures of Salam Maftoon have gone viral on social media since he started contesting for the title in the talent quest TV show Afghan Star.
His fans and followers call him Salam Trudeau and Afghan Trudeau while several others have suggested that the singer would look exactly like the Canadian Prime Minister if his traditional hat is removed and dressed in formal suit.
Some other social media users have commented regarding the resemblance of the two individuals with surprise, stating that They are not sure whether Justin Trudeau is from Afghanistan or Salam Maftoon is from Canada while others have said that Afghanistan is home to several look-alikes of famous individuals.
Here's another loving and sweet female who adores President Trump as she once held a mock of his bleeding head in her hands.
Now she blames Trump for her pain.
I'll say a prayer for her while I'm praying for Hillary.
The washed up comedian posted a photo of herself in the hospital wearing a face mask and accused President Trump of lying about the Coronavirus pandemic.
Hes lying. I was sent to the
#COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldnt test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions, Kathy Griffin said in a tweet.
His name is Scott Perry and he has cancer. To aid in the raising of his children after his death, this "Council of Dads" was formed.
Man Scott Perry has a biracial daughter from a first marriage. Scott and his wife Robin have a couple of adopted children, one is oriental.
One child is a male child of Scott and Robin who is 7 years and transgendered.
He was really a female at birth.
I'm sorry but this is just not appropriate for young children to watch. Are we to allow 7 year olds to choose their gender at that age?
I predict this TV show will be off the air after one season.
This week, NBC introduced the new show Council of Dads, inspired by Bruce Feiler's best-selling memoir of the same name. According to Deadline, after Feiler was diagnosed with cancer he feared "what the absence of a father figure would do to the lives of his young twin daughters, he [Feiler] looked at his male friends and realized that there was no one person perfectly suited for the job. So he formed a Council of Dads, which consisted of six of his closest friends who agreed to help him raise his daughters." Feiler eventually made a full recovery from cancer and raised his daughters. While the new show is inspired by the concept of the book, its storyline differs dramatically from it.
The pilot episode, on March 24th, premiered after This Is Us and is clearly trying to tug at the same heartstrings. Council of Dads introduces a close, loving family trying to get through life's challenges. There are close-knit siblings and an inspiring marriage. And, like This Is Us, fathers are shown as a positive and important presence in children's lives. The show even has a subplot with an unexpected pregnancy that leads to a beautiful new baby welcomed with joy.
’Power Player of the Week’ segment: Joel Osteen.”
That’s so funny. With all that’s going on ... JOEL OSTEEN?
Try Cuba. Some say Fidel was the Baby Daddy.
Might be a rumor, but on fact intellectually.
Yeah, I had a similar reaction, “Osteen?” False prophet in spades.
Also LOL at CNN lineup. Full-bore anti-Trump.
I don’t believe I’ve ever watched even one of the Sunday talk shows. They sound excruciating.
Brilliant as usual bud.Just watched a short presentation by VP pence which gives a clue as to how the potus will open the country back up for business.
He will use the facts and figures from each area to decide who is more or less coronal free and who is not.
Areas like NYC which have taken pride in being loaded with disease will now pay a price for being such losers. By the way none other than Jason Goodman and his buddy former cia whistle blower Kevin Shipp made the rounds around portions of nyc and had a hard time finding where all the crowded hospitals were, if there indeed there are any. Maybe they just went to the wrong areas. But then maybe the scammers are at work again we shall see.
I spent the week looking into the corona virus and here is what I came up with:
Another week passes.
Im tired of talking, researching the covid19, ,wuflu,chinese flu, whatever the latest buzz word is for whatever we are enduring. How many are infected, is there more than one version, should we have shut the economy down,is there a simpler reason to what is really going on?All valid questions.
All just the tip of the covid19 iceberg which is now 24/7 on many tv nets,most hate Trump nets, 24/7.
So, after a while you have to ask the question is there a reason for all this? An all encompassing reason that explains everything that millions are going through especially here in the US?
Could it be as simple as follow the money?
Was a trap set for Trump to destroy the economy have the drivebys salute him now and then destroy him for doing so come election time.Was it all about the money/power/politics of never letting a good crisis go to waste as Rhambo said for the second time in his history?
Maybe.We know that a significant amount of both NATO,UN and US funding is diverted to the deep state.There are so many involved in handling the funds involved its almost ineveitable. Take it out of the US and its even worse.
Six months ago would Donald Trump have suggested that we destroy the economy and than break the bank by passing a bill that spent over two trillion with an extra four trillion for the fed if necessary?And than making matters even worse suggesting that if that wasnt enough....well you get it by now.
No way in hell,would never have happened six months ago.
Our side of the aisle which he listens to constantly would never have let something like that pass. The idea would have come and gone in less that 24 hours.
So what happened that our side is remarkably silent.The hard left is saluting Trump like their saviour.All of a sudden they are hoping he succeeds! And, the Deep State is salivating just to get their hands on some of that money/power.
Is it all media driven?Is it a case of little more that several strains of the common flu?One that kills with a venganance at a high rate and the other that at times is not even noticed?
We can speculate but truth is we dont actually know for a fact.
There are wide speculative cases to be made on how we got here:
1.A noted Freeper gave this response to what is going on:
I think this article by Dr. Noel is one of the best explanations about what is going on. We have yearly flu, influenza cases and now we have mixed them up all together with corona virus cases. Do you test everyone now? Do you treat or do you let it run its course? Every doctor I know has a different opinion and point of view.
The people at CDC are scientists and many cannot make a decision because there are always variables in every test they do. Drs. Fauci and Brix cant give a straight answer if their life depended on it. Get them off the stage. They have caused incalculable economical damage because they cant think out of the box.
FEMA should have been placed in charge of getting supply chains started and organized. We need logistics people, not quibbling scientists.
3.yet another post by another brilliant freeper:
I think POTUS will get things rolling by Easter or before. That date seems important to him as a Resurrection kind of thing.
I Talked to a lot of international docs today-giving technical advice to them. Good to hear that they are thinking more and more that isolation of all people was NOT required and should not have been done. They are talking about herd immunity-allowing people to get the virus and build up their own immunity to it. Drs Fauci and Birx do not agree...but what else is new?
Here is a great story about US ingenuity: https://www.massdevice.com/university-of-minnesota-researcher-touts-makeshift-150-ventilator-to-treat-coronavirus/
Some Polish engineers designed a similar ventilator for approx $40 and gave their info to the EU bureaucrats. They were turned down. Now the chinese is trying to offer the Poles money and incentives to help them with masks etc. I am thinking their spies will steal this design and make it theirs.....thanks to the EU giving these specs to the CCP for money of course.
4.and yet another post:
The only number to pay attention to on this virus is the deaths number and does it exceed the regular flu numbers? We may be being played by the media.
5.George Webb suggests that there are five strains of the corona virus we are dealing with and only three in china suggesting it started here.
He also says that there is an LS Lethal Strain that may have been used in Iran. Recall how they were dying like flies, and other strains not so lethal at all?
If any of this can be corroborated its huge!
If this is true how do you test for five strains of corona 19?
6.Bill Gates, Ted Turner, and Geo Soros want to depopulate the planet. It appears they will get their wish.
7.why do you need crisis actors in Houston/
8.Yet another brilliant take by George Webb on why there are five strains of the virus,a video that has not been removed yet as several others of his have been removed.
9.And than the mother-load of all info right here on FR on the Q threads by ransomnote whose brilliance has shown through once again.
10.one more comment:
Many of Webbs videos have been taken down re NATO involvement / chinese corona virus.
11.Yet another version of how it all began by Chanel Rion,
12.Always time for a little aside:
Is James Comey in jail?
13.Has the deep state taken over:
14.Bishop Larry Gaiters and Jason Goodman have their own theories of how it all started,was it a chinese plot to punish those who poo-pooed their silk road/belt initive by weaponizing the covid19 flu on their enemies? Inquring minds want to know.
15. this version claims that the virus is an American bio-weapon created here.
16.George Webb trying to explain what he has done and why youtube took down a video he did that had 600k hits,its here well worth the time:
17.how the chicoms rip us off using our own people who go over to the dark side:
18.corona virus timeline by webb
So viewing the above you see the varying opinions of how it all started. Where,when,how but curiously not so much on the why other than a few speculations which may or may not be relevant.
My speculation is that its all about the money.That if you had followed the money especially in the non-profits everything from the terrorist run World Health Org. on down careful research lends one to believe that the goal of the deep state was for DJT to take himself down by destroying the economy and than the govt. by first letting the govt. at all levels take over things.A sure fire case for disaster. Than spend the countries money and finally blame him for all of it at election time in hopes that they could get the senile ol fool crazy Joe in office.
That will never happen. But, portions of it already have.
Has the President already become aware of all this and is he planning to reverse it all by Easter,April 12?
I for one hope so.
Here's a little aside I ran across where? Here on FR where else!
Is this our guy the former fBI boss now where he ought to be inthe slammer:
note the bed bolted to the wall,narrow windows
Interesting. Very interesting.
Odds are great that it won't be a typical gushing over liberal icons as is the typical Wallass' fare, but rather a hit job blaming Evangelical Christians for the virus spread.
Some of the guests have good information. The issue I have with them, and news in general, is that the press frames the issues to suit its agenda, which is emphatically not to get to the truth.
I think most people who follow FR, who watch, do so to discern the agenda and to notice the duplicity, double standards, weak and faulty logic, and so on. Like watching a train wreck.
Good essay, Bray.
And I couldn’t agree more.
I think this all has been a blown up mess, or at best greatly over-reacted to.
I did not know that bit about morgues and funeral homes not wanting to be infected.
They do really mislead don’t they?
If I may, can I add a thought?
This week I have been talking to my granddaughter.
She’s going nuts.
I didn’t but I wanted to shout “BOO FREAKING HOO”!
We have a nation full of kids that have had life almost handed to them with a trophy for everybody.
Granddaughter will have to entertain herself, she needs to get over it.
They will all be better off for having lived through something bad. It ain’t a war and it ain’t a depression. But it’s certainly painful.
She spent a half hour complaining how she can’t go here, she can’t go there, she has to remove all her clothes if returning from visiting someone, she is going to have to read a book.
They have several narrative, such as Trump and Conservatives are bad/evil/stupid/traitors, and write their stories to frame out whatever narrative they’re using.
Who, What, When, Why and How are no longer the journalistic foundation.
For sure and the source:
For those who have not seen the “Q” threads this week they are spectacular.I especially likey ransomnotes stuff this guy has it all together and little escapes his grasp.One brilliant guy.
