The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Your LOVE has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints. Pauls Plea for Onesimus Philemon 1:7
Well, well, well after we had a month of the Racist Rock we now have the Sexist Roll how convenient. It is so refreshing to watch our messiah worshippng media once again fire up their attack machine after all these years since Bush. Well they did have Palin since Bush, Chaney, Rove, Libby, Rice, Rumsfeld, Petreaus Reagan. The feigned outrage is so fresh and precious to watch and the cherry on top is to see our candidates go cowering off like the sissies they are, sad. When are they ever going to punch the bully in the nose and throw him over the fence?
Once again we have the old quadruple standard being used against another Conservative as they pretend we have to elect a Pope to go to the District of Corruption. After we sent someone who was financed by jailed campaign financier Rezko, whose Chief of Staff is a slumlord and given a pass and never ever axed how he financed his house or where his wifes $300K pay stubs were, they are outraged, outraged someone had a sexual harassment complaint lodged against him. It is outrageous somebody who worked in the real world wants to enter their corrupt klatch. How confusing can you get when BJ was carried around DC on their shoulders and literally offering him their panties, are offended by this?
Most men who lived through the corporate sex harassment lectures when you were told to completely ignore and stay away from women at work, he got sued. Men were told at all levels to not look at them, joke with them or especially date them or you could be terminated, he got sued so what. Most of the women who brought the lawsuits were the ones telling the jokes or feminists who would file for holding a door open for them, we are supposed to believe this is something to negate his ability to lead, well it isnt and he was likely set up by a feminist and a sleazy lawyer looking for some bucks. Femi-commies like Gloria Steinem understood if they could divide the sexes they were on their way to their utopian paradise, so they used division politics for political gain making harassment lawsuits the rage. Hows that destruction of men worked out for you women?
The truly sad part of this little dust up is the way all of the candidates are all afraid to stand up to this tried and true tactic. Like always the Dems attack machine is trying to take the eyes off their sleight of hand to steal your billfold with their old smoke and mirrors. They know they have no way to argue any reason to keep their messiah so they are going to use their favorite weapon, the politics of personal destruction. Just like they used against Perry and the phony Racist Rock they are going for the Sexism charge to continue their favorite cliché of Repubs are Racist, Sexist, Homophobes who need to be ignored. How many decades are they going to get away with this thug tactic before they are called on it?
Any presidential candidate that doesnt stand up for Cain has no business getting anybodys vote. If they dont have the courage or ability to say this is not a valid issue and they will not allow this election to be turned into a sideshow they have no business running. Any candidate willing to pile on should be shunned and asked to resign immediately since they know as well as anybody this is their only weapon and we need to stop it. They need to immediately say there is nothing here and until proven otherwise has nothing to do with our overspending and massive debt. How does this compare to the fact that most of America is about to be buried in Obamacare? For any candidate to not stand up says more about their own character than anything that some non sexual remark has.
Just like Sarah Palin, Herman Cain represents a huge voting block for the Commies. To have a Black running as a Conservative threatens to destroy the DNC let alone the Obama election. Without the Blacks hating the Whites or the poor hating the non poor, Present One Term has no chance of being elected and they know it. Herman Cain represents the Underground Railroad off the DNC Plantation for millions of poor Blacks and White Guilt, especially with his articulation. He could bring this Country together and they cannot afford to have that happen, it would be the end of their power which is the only thing they truly care about. The return of the melting pot is their greatest fear.
If more Blacks were to take the Cain Train off the Plantation who would they have to pick the cotton every four years? Ever since Lyndon Johnson being persuaded to sign the Republican Voting Rights Act when he declared, Ill have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years. and so he did.
He was smart enough to realize with the Great Society he could do more damage to the Black Family and society then the Klan could ever dream to do and he was right. Cain can ruin all that and so he is going to be made an example of what happens to Blacks who try to escape, just like Clarence Thomas and Condi Rice. This is race politics plain and simple being run by a bunch of racists in the DNC establishment.
Now we all have a chance from an outsider, but we have to fight like we have never fought before. He is not only going to be attacked by the Black establishment but both Parties are afraid of what he represents from the grass roots. He has a campaign that isnt going to pour millions into commercials or make promises to special interests like the IRS lobby and their K Street liars. No, he has to be destroyed and most should understand this feigned outrage is only another tactic they use to divide us and keep us all down for fear of making ourselves a target like Herman. We need to reject these distractions and keep our heads down marching towards the prize.
His competition needs to go shoulder to shoulder against these attack dogs and throw them in the ditch. If they are not smart enough to realize they are next then they arent ready to fight the bigger battles if they get elected. Now is the time to neuter this flea bitten mongrel once and for all to allow America to focus on whats important rather than slime politics. It was wrong with Perry, it is wrong now and it will be wrong for the next victim. It is time for the candidates to go against the tired old politics and take a bold stand that America will appreciate. We have some real problems in this Country and a phony lawsuit from 15 yrs ago isnt one of them. America deserves better than this and now she is watching. How about it Newt, Perry, Bachmann, Romney Paul, you willing to fight?
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily mine, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Funny how when 0 did the same thing Cain did to the journalist last night all the media rolled over and played dead rather then make it the lead story.
The difference was Cain was done being asked the same question over and over and over while 0 was ducking a tough question about Blago.
The media really does not realize this reflects on them a lot more then it does Cain.
Thanks for thread AB. LSU lucked out.
Wow is the media coverage of the Cain/Gingrich debate silly. Rather then report they news, they are all whining the sexual harassment smear at Cain wasn’t the topic.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Round-table with political consultants.
Will they discuss:
Herman Cain’s so-called bungling of his denial?
Last night’s performances by Cain and Gingrich?
Obama’s hand in front of the face of another foreign leader at the G20 meeting group photo?
The Mayor of Oakland giving the municipal employees the day off to join the protest that closed her busy Port, while she is asking the Federal Government for money for her Port?
Jon Corzine’s theft of his customer’s investment money?
What a dynamic lineup from MTP today! Think I’ll get 2 hours of extra sleep.
I should have gone fishing but not quite up to it yet in 8 foot seas.
The Alphabets aren’t worth watching, its going to be constant “Kill Cain” stuff. Talking points from the DNC will be piled on ad nauseum. By the time the convention comes around they’ll have Cain portrayed with combed over hair and a small mustache. They compare his campaign to Germany 1931.
Howdy Doody is interviewing Bill Richardson on - get this - Herman Cain’s sex harrassment charges. The man who can’t keep his hands off women on airplanes!
I’ll take “the groundswell of grass roots support for occupy wallstreet”.
We’ll see if I won after church.
Morning all, thanks AB
THE DEBATE, THE DEBATE!
Who will talk about the actual news item?
Morning AB, All,
As always, AB, thank you for doing this thread, dependably, early enough, the pings, the info provided and your graciousness as thread captain.
Singing this morning at 10 am mass. Will be back to join in discussion around 11:30 am. Keep me posted. I am taping Meet the Press and Fox News Sunday so I’ll be reasonably caught up in due course.
Not much going on in the swamps here except the ongoing saga of the Sheriff and the county councilman. Said county councilman who last week was flying in some sort of ultralight airplane in Virginia, which crashed and broke his back.
This is the same councilman who kneed the Sheriff in the groin and cut his retina via a thrown pad of paper.
The councilman is going to live but just when you think the story can’t get any weirder, it gets weirder.
Anyway, hope to join in later ..
You just need a bigger boat. There's a TV show about that.
You are 100% right on!!! The idiot media has not a clue that the overwhelming numbers of Republican Caucus & Primary voters could care less about Poltico and the false Cain story!!! Yesterday, Politico was ranting about how their folks will be on all the Sunday morning shows enmasse!!! We shall see if that happens. I suspect some of the TV networks, might give a minute of lip service to the Cain story, but, if they have any brains, they will let it die on the vine!!! It has no legs!!! And.....to boot a vast majority of the American voters could care less about it one way or the other!!!! The entire media, IMHO, some conservatives included is so far removed from the real pulse of the nation, they should be disbanded for incompetence across the board, Fox News Network, also included with the low life, dirt bag media types!!!! Fox & Friends this morning was disgusting to say the least!!!
Frankly, I didn’t think we could beat them, but our defense was awesome. Too bad the offense couldn’t get some of that awesomeness (even a tiny bit to the kickers, for example!).
Love the way the slander at Cain is a scandal. When can we expect the same junk Media to refer to the fast and furious scandal or the Solyndra scandal ect ect ect ect
Really a shameful chapter in US Journalism.
On Friday the NRA offered the accusers a release from the confidentially agreement so they could come forward and tell their side. They refused.
End of story. Anonymous accusations, rumor and innuendo is not news.
Instead of reporting those facts, the “media” keeps pimping the “Cain sexual harassment scandal”
No it is the “Slandering Cain scandal” that should be the news. Who pushed this smear against Cain?
Watching Meet the Press - absolute hysteria over Herman Cain! The press is lunatic over this.
If there's one thing we know on this thread, it is that the media is totally biased and in lockstep with the DNC. I show them my hand! I will not watch their shows, channels, whatever, except the Sunday shows which are intelligence missions deep in enemy territory! I certainly do not buy their rags. I disdain them and know that Obama is their creation. I give more blame to the driveby media for our current worldwide predicaments and catastrophes; including 9/11 and the current economic meltdown, the loss of South Vietnam, the holacaust in Cambodia, the rise of the Ayatollahs in Iran and the spread of Islamic Fundamentalism then anyone in the democratic party. The democrats/driveby alliance is of the devil, as far as I am concerned.
It's truly a miracle that despite all this we still got Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II who stopped the Cold War and defeated the Soviets. I'm sure there was much sneering at JourOlist cocktail parties.
So I say screw them. From now on I will rally to the cause and name of those they oppose. What they hate is decency, goodness, and righteousness. By their enemies you shall know them.
Haven't you heard? According to the MSM, the first three years of the Obama Administration have been "miraculously scandal free"
Cain, Gingrich Debate Lincoln-Douglas Style
For those who did not get to see it, here is the video
From all my time in corporate financial management through the 70's and forward; some things became apparent:
1. Any settlement that was less than a year's earnings is a nuisance settlement, intended to get the problem behind you, get the malcontent off the payroll, and get the malcontent out the door.
2. There is an old concept called, "Primate See, Primate Do." One person sees another person get a check by complaining, then another person files a similar complaint. Only liberals would consider that to be a coincidence. Or a trial lawyer looking for cash. And a liberal trial lawyer looking for cash would really be an issue.
3. Actually it was a good thing that Billy / Hilly came along and deflated the inflation in such settlements. Put that down as an unintended consequence.
Attorney Joel Bennet, Politico, John Podesta, Barack Hussein Obama (these folks are all connected). Tie the dots together!!! It is not Mitt Romney that Obama fears!!! Anyone that blieves that is nuts!!!
TV show? No. From the movies!
Here's a picture of Rod fishing off the Keys....
Good post Bray, though I think you expect too much. You expect the pub candidates to take a stand? Beginning with, they’re pubs! Moving on to the obvious....they are up against Cain, he’s their competition. It’ll snow in hell before what you want happens. But it’s nice to dream.
Got a few moments before church, thus some thoughts. First, the Lamestream is a mess at times but for one week now we’ve heard about Cain’s transgressions but as of yet, not one female has come forward, not one legal document has been produced. It looks to me like Cain struggled to provide an explanation but beyond that absolutely no participants in any of this nonsense have stepped forward save some bogus lawyer who knew nothing. Folks, it don’t get any badder than that.
I did some thinking on this sexual harassment thing and my own rich working past in dealing with the matter. This long before the NAGS got their fangs into it and who, silly me, thought were wonderful and on my side at the time.
Males make moves on females all the time and oncit upon a time, even now from time to time I suspect. I was once a union rep and had to work late often with the union VP, a fat really creepy guy. One night, next thing I know, the guy’s got his hand up my blouse and he’s pulling me to him for a big ugly sloppy kiss.
I slapped his hand away and harumpphhhed. I did absolutely nothing to encourage this man but he did knock it off.
Also had a boss, right in the office in the middle of the shop where I was a Quality Control Inspector, in the midst of a confab we were having over reports, slid his hand right up my skirt! I pulled away, embarassed though why I was embarassed still amuses me. Again, he didn’t do it again.
One time, this is really shocking to me still to this day, my very father-in-law put his hand on my thigh and made indecent overtures. When I told my husband about it husband just changed the subject. Found out later, after I divorced this emasculated creep, that the FIL was fired from his job for sexual harassment and I’m thinking he likely deserved it.
The biggest problem I had in my life with sexual harassment was about my ability to do the job rather than any kind of sexual thing. I was a Quality Control Inspector, first female in a department of all men. Some of those men were really bad, once locking up my one and only female colleague in the high voltage tank room. Once that door was secured, the voltage of up to 24,000 could be turned on. The idea was you go out of the cage after hooking up the leads to the wires, lock the cage door, THEN flip the switch. Only some brave, brave guy in our department walks by and thought it would be a hoot to close the door while she was still in there so the hyenas could all sit and watch her standing still in fear, yelling for someone to unlock.
I was a Union Rep on that one, got that guy FIRED, asshole, was nominated and ran for a higher union position, by my MALE colleagues, yes it was one of my life’s victories.
Other day my husband says...”Reminds me of Anita Hill getting all upset over a discussion of a pubic hair on a coke can. Silly thing to get riled about.”
Getting out of the way that maybe such a discussion never happened but husband’s assumption was that Thomas did say this but Hill was too sensitive. No. You get in a situation with a man where he starts to talk dirty, it’s not fun, it’s not nice, you don’t want to go there, do not say it’s all just innocent fun.
It’s scary is what it is. Again, not saying such a thing happened tween Hill and Thomas but husband’s stance that Hill was too darn sensitive is wrong headed.
Point is sexual harassment DOES happen, do not be fooled, though I seriously doubt it happens that much today. All of my incidents were before the big uproar over the matter.
I daresay most women around my age could recite the same kind of stories.
Seems to me from what I could glean from the Cain nothing burger story, that, at MOST, Cain had a bit of a roving eye for the ladies. All of these so-called incidents happened at the phoenix of the NAGS reign in power. Sounds like these women took advantage of something imaginery, maybe something real but hardly x-rated, and made some money.
For it IS okay for a male to make advances, with taste hopefully. It’s when he doesn’t take NO for an answer that the problems occur.
Don't assume guilt just because an accusation was made. It is also possible for women to lie in these cases. Innocent until prove guilty is suppose to be the standard
I have talked to people who know Cain and have worked closely with him.
These accusations are complete nonsense.
That shark appears to have a condom on it. I was thinking about “Deadliest Catch”
Crazy Uncle up with little tiny chriswallace.
Looks like they’re using epoxy on the eyebrows this morning.
Regarding the state of Obama’s economy,
MD Gov. Martin OMalley(D): “Better isn’t good enough”
What possible reason could Huntsman still be in the race for?
I did not say in any fashion that there is any truth to any of the nonsense last week.
I did not. I believe it’s all nonsense, air, nothing burgers.
The Texas whackjob decrying our actions causing the Pakkers to “hate our guts”
How about; they already hate our guts Einstein?
Now talking with the other and brilliant Honorable Ron Paul (R-TX) and his excellent plan for trashing trillions of dollars of wasteful spending.
Wallace almost stuck his foot in it today. He was asked on Fox this am if he thought Cain/Gingrich would be a good ticket.
He started out saying “I can think of stronger tickets...” and then caught himself before he went to far. It is obvious Wallace has a horse in this race. My guess is he is a Romney guy.
Sorry I misunderstood your last paragraph,
Wallace ignoring every single poll finds a RomneyBOUGHT?
Indiana fake "poll" and presents its false chart showing
Romney as the "front runner".
Wallace also initially misrepresent where it is from.
Ron Paul talks economics and Wallace changes
the subject to defend Obama, the DNC, and the Drone attacks
controlled by the ineligible Imam.
Interestingly, Wallace shows as much fervor for this as he does
in his devotion to Milt Romney.
Wallace changes to the attacks by FOX and Politico
on Mr. Cain.
Ron Paul: It has been "blown out of proportion".
Shifty eyed Wallace asks how the FOX-Politico
fraudulent, racist attacks might help him.
The bait was not taken.
This Week show starts with an entire recap of the Cain saga, before going on to an interview with Boehner.
On CNN, Candy Crowley, now a long-haired brunette, is talking to Martin O’Malley, Gov of Md, about Obama’s chances next year. What a waste of space O’Malley is, but he will be term-limited out of his job next year, and is looking for a new slot: vp or senator. He is just nauseating, but in Md he will win whatever he wants.
As usual we are up against the huge double standard foisted upon us by the DBM.
If a Republican is even accused of sexual misconduct its enough for 90 articles to be written by the far left wing blogosphere hit jobbers aka Politico.
After all that, and they still get no traction, they send their emissaries on lib TV on the far left nets like mslsd to moan, groan and complain to F.Chuck, bad morning Joe and the rest of the lefttards over there.
Meanwhile on the left hand side of the sexual abuse scene we have a potus who was impeached for sexual misconduct and the commensurate lying that goes with it. He gets away with telling his victims better put on ice on that while our guy is not allowed any excuse whatsoever for unsubstantiated claims!!
The rabid lefts biggest conquest of all, ozero, has well substantiated claims by Larry Sinclair and others of his homosexuality occurring in about the same time frame as Cains.These alleged misdeeds are totally missed by the msm/dbm.
This double standard employed by the dbm will of course become their demise. They slowly sink in the world of capitalism where you have to offer value for a product to garner endangered bucks these days. If not you are out of the game. Be it ever too slowly or in some cases with the speed of a Solyndra.
Wallace almost stuck his foot in it today. He was asked on Fox this am if he thought Cain/Gingrich would be a good ticket.
He started out saying I can think of stronger tickets... and then caught himself before he went to far. Think this should be remembered by the Wallace fans. He is not an honest broker of information
Frmr Gov Richardson: “This President has a great foreign policy record.”
[Without drastic economic/jobs improvement next year, see more of Obama running on foreign policy rather than domestic policy.]
[Theme on MTP: Cain’s lack of foreign policy experience. Gregory asked both Richardson and Huntsman about that.]
I was actually invited on a big boat. But, its been a rough week around the rodguy Ponderosa this week. I actually need to stay around the home and “occupy” it a just a little bit.
