The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Do not steal. Do not lie. Do not deceive one another. Leviticus 19:11
The swarmy FBI agents like Counterintelligence Chief Peter Strzok give the other 5% a bad name. It is long past time to tear down the FBI and replace it with an agency which is not a DNC political tool. Whether it was the eight years of Obama or the last sixty years of institutional corruption it is time to eliminate this cancer on America and start over. You could see from the hearing with not only Strzoks arrogance and obvious hatred of President Trump and Repubs, he was surrounded by agents who had the same animus for every American represented on that committee.
It is terrifying to think this agency has the ability to spy on every American no matter whom and what they are with complete abandon from any sort of governing. As you were able to witness of Strzok who may be the least aware and most arrogant man in America, he was able to bring the entire agency to bear in framing candidate and then President Donald Trump with a manufactured crime without any oversight. For anyone to pretend they had no bias when there was an obvious hatred of Trump as well as his supporters.
Even though you may not always use antecdotal evidence to vilify an entire people, in this case he was exactly what everyone has witnessed with almost every encounter with the FBI. Everything from the David Koresh standoff, to Ruby Ridge, 9/11 and the latest with the Oregon Bundy standoff and now Donald Trump we have seen nothing but contempt for the American people by the FBI. It is impossible to find one instance where this agency has reached out to America in any meaningful way which points more to its detesting Americans rather than support.
During his hearing you could not only tell Strzok was lying he was proud to lie and in those moments did not care if he was since he was trained to. You could see all of his junior FBI training coming into view as he felt he could fool the interrogator with his version of the truth as long as he pretended to believe it. He was well coached by the equally swarmy lieyers behind him and especially the bearded one who took ambulance chaser to a new level with his contempt for the Repubs.
What we saw was a guy over and over denying the obvious that his personal bias and hatred for the President did not cloud his judgement when he was the lead investigator for the Hillary investigation and the Trump framing. Who are you going to believe, him or your own lying eyes? There never has been more personal correspondence with his texts destroying his testimony while he wants you to believe they were not connected. Any average witness would realize what you write goes far deeper into your psyche than anything you say, so the texts have to have more weight than anything he said which absolutely points to his bias and hatred.
He absolutely hates Donald Trump as you could see in his eyes and hates everyone who voted for him as you could read in his texts. He joked how he could smell Trump voters on a trip into southern Virginia and how they were a bunch of ignorant Hillbillies in Northern VA. He detested those hard working pickup driving Americans who were not part of the District of Corruption Mercedes drivers who he was a part of and who supported his fellow elitist Hillary. How he longed for the days of Bill Clinton. He pretends he is above all of those Hillbillies when he supported one of the most phony Hillbillies on the planet who got to power with an aw shucks act and his mafia enforcement.
People inside the Beltway are pure Marxists and every means to maintain power is justified to meet the required ends. The FBI and elites like Strozk have been developed to maintain and enforce the corruption with blackmail and threats of destruction of your life as we have seen with Flynn and Manafort, who sits in solitary confinement without a trial over a decades old charge. They use their power to destroy people and businesses to maintain the centralized control of Moscow on the Potomac. For them to pull out Putin as a villain is laughable when their perfect world looks almost exactly like his with their dream KGB having absolute control on every American as they whisper in fear of their gummit masters.
The District and everyone who works there has a bias towards Marxism since that is what pays their salary. Of course you are going to lean that way since you are paid very well every month by a Marxist system to maintain itself as it taxes the working class to pay those salaries which makes up most the gummit expense. As that system becomes bigger and more entrenched agencies become corrupted to make sure those salaries are protected and power pockets are formed. One of those power pockets is the FBI and ever since Hoover; people, businesses and politicians have been told either play ball with DC or it would destroy you which is what we are seeing with the fake Russian Collusion investigation which was invented by Peter Strzok to stop Trump who was their biggest threat.
What we witnessed during the Strzok hearing was a look behind the curtain and who these people are who maintain the order inside the Beltway. We got a look at how they will lie, cheat and steal to maintain their cushy lifestyle inside Moscows Inner Circle. Like all Marxist apparatchiks he had his mistress and Dacha in the woods and all the comforts that go with them. He was the enforcer so he got to decide who could and could not be in the Beltway and in his instance was going to change an election. He was going to exonerate Hillary from her crimes and invent ones to destroy Trump. There was not so much a bias in his case as much as an enforcement of the status quo inside the Inner Circle.
What we saw in Strzok was not so much a bias and hatred of Donald Trump, but a hatred of the fact that Peters world could be damaged if someone outside were to take the levers of power. Trump was not a bumbling dolt like GW or an Anti-American fellow commie like Obozo; he was an outsider who got things done as well as a Capitalist which is not acceptable to the Agencies and an obvious threat to their lifestyle. So he set about to fix the election with his buddy Comey and were going to give Hillary a pass and dig up dirt on Trump except The Donald could not afford dirt in his past positions and so they had to invent some coming up with the fake collusion story. It is past time to bulldoze the Hoover building and end the reign of terror it represents. It serves no purpose and as we saw the average agent is more concerned with the agency than it is with those smelly Hillbillies outside the Beltway. It is time to turn off the lights at the FBI and turn up the Torch in the Ladys uplifted hand.
Pray America Woke Up
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Sunday Morning Futures is the only Sunday show worth watching.
Morning AB, All. As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably and keeping the peace with gentle thread policing. Thank you Bray for weekly written wisdom, Thank all yon contributors for excellent commentary to flesh it all out.
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.
Check out the intellectual regulars, AB, Rodguy and Bray.
The boys in Thailand
I don't know of a single person in America, complete strangers on the street .that one couldn't ask or update on those boys in Thailand trapped in a deep, underground cave filled with water.
It's a captivating story that, as of this writing on Monday afternoon, has so far resulted in five rescues but, sadly, one death of a rescuer.
There were signs posted by this cave but, for whatever reason, the coach of that team thought a trip deep inside, some over two miles mind you, would be cool.
The boys have been trapped in there over two weeks at this time.
Does Anyone Remember Harriet Miers?
Heh. I didn't know what George W. Bush was thinking at the time and neither did over half his party's caucus.
Miers, I think, cleaned hotel rooms in the summer and in her spare time served as WH counsel to Bush.
Her silly nomination caused a wave of outrage to sweep the nation until Dubya dropped his nomination.
Another example of how very dumb Dubya was .and still is.
New Supreme Court Justice-Brett Kavanaugh.
He's a district Judge in the DC district and I have nothing but good stuff about him all day.
The liberals hate the guy, like they would like any nominee of President Trump.
I think Kavanaugh will be an excellent Supreme Court justice.
Meanwhile, females across the fruited plain are singing, yelling, cussing and carrying signs chastising those who would take away their "right" to an abortion.
Are those women wackos?
First, I argue that Roe vs Wade will never be overturned.
Many may argue that it should be but it won't happen, I'm telling you it won't happen.
One 14 year old girls shows up pregnant by her father and unable to get an abortion because Roe vs. Wade has been overturned by the Supreme Court.
And of course every woman wanting an abortion, often, sadly, as a sort of birth control, will claim rape and it will not do to have raped women forced to have the babies of their rapist.
It's a sad state of affairs and of course, like so many "new privileges" granted, it's abused. For cutting the spinal cord of a baby while it is still in the mother's womb, 7, 8, 9 months along, is a sin.
Now I could be wrong. If Roe vs. Wade should be overturned then to continue to allow same would be up to the states.
I'm betting most states won't forbid abortion.
Remember the 14 year old pregnant by her own father.
The liberals will have a hayday with all this.
What a sad state of affairs.
I had no idea a)that NATO is an alliance formed to have Europe and America stare down the Soviet Union; b)Germany was buying billions in oil from this very enemy; c)the NATO members agreed to pay 2% of their gross national product to keep NATO afloat.
This is why the Bushes, the Clintons, Obama got away with taking money from these countries, to be contributed to the election fund, insert wink here.
No wonder they are all mad at President Trump! He's telling us all the secrets, how the ruling class .eh rules. THEY HATE HIM FOR IT!
With ears constantly open I listen to the secrets. These past 40 years have been a joke to America. They flip us the bird, they giggle, and now they all act like assholes.
Now we know THEIR personality.
Americans do not like you Ruling Class. Go away.
Peter Strzok says Trump supporters are smelly, that Trump will lose the then upcoming election 150 million to zero, and, finally, he tells lover Ms. Page that he will be brought down.
I laughed all day yesterday as this little nothing-burger-one of many nothing-burgers in the FBI, defended those awful texts and, get this, he said no matter how terrible his words sound, he was in no way bias in his investigation into Trump and Russia.
Sure. I got a bridge to sell, real cheap. Wobbles a bit but no tariffs, nothing, a great bridge.
This Peter Strzok is a big zero. He had no ability to conduct himself impartially and with a just sense of fairness.
Now that you think about it, much like the awful Comey guy, that McCabe who could be purchased same as my bridge, and this Mueller devil man ..the entire top tier of the FBI.
They have lost any respect I ever had for them.
I suspect many other Americans feel the same.
Meanwhile in London, President Trump lands for some kind of grand dinner thing and it was very impressive, a little ceremony, "Amazing Grace" played on the bagpipes.
The best of all was Melania's GORGEOUS buttercup yellow dress.
She's the best dressed First Lady .EVAH!!!!
So lots of people were paid to carry on like idiots on the streets of London. They had a helium-filled Trump balloon and they had no idea what anything was about.
Then President Trump met the queen and in the middle of all this, the wonderful and very sweet Rod Rosenstein made a big announcement that he was going to arrest 12 Russians for hacking the Democrat computers.
When are they going to find something on Trump like Mueller and his band of merry liars say they have?
All in all it's been a good European trip for President Trump but they do not like he who points out others who cheat.
Next week it's on to Helsinki to meet with Vladimir Putin.
Maybe Trump can arrest those 12 Russians Mueller is looking for.
I’m gonna stir the pot...Go Croatia...I believe they are not allowing Muslim immigrants.
Great analysis, Bray.
Here it goes...
I actually think Daniels and George are part of a distraction act to take us past the elections when finally the hammer will drop with overwhelming force.
My reasoning is based on salient amalgamated by Thomas Wiktor, Stealth Jeff, and Imperetor Rex...not posted here, elsewhere.
PDJT has had over a year to fire Sessions. Either PDJT is an idiot or he is a stable genius. He cannot be both. Idiots do not keep on board those who do not perform. PDJT, when he was just, the Donald , fired people for less.
Like Sun Tsu said, when you act, do I it like a lightening bolt.
It will be after November and it will be like whiplash+.
I trust PDJT.
Flame me, but think deeply. Logic wins. PDJT moves pieces, he does not make emotional moves.
Per a Twitter comment from Jake Tapper, he said WH pulled National Security Adviser John Bolton from his Sunday show. Jake wonders why.
Melania in that dress. People need to stop comparing her to Jackie O. She has passed her up for sure.
Morning everyone. Its a beautiful Sunday.
Thank you for this thread. AB, Fishtalk, others.
If Kavanaugh is confirmed, we could see progress rolled back on many issues including the right of women to make their own medical decisions, voting rights, rights of workers to organize for better wages and working conditions, the principle of equal justice under the law & more." Sen. Corey Booker, D-N.J., who is another likely contender for the Democratic nomination.
"If confirmed, American citizens will hemorrhage basic rights, and corporations will have an open door for a hostile takeover." Tom Steyer, billionaire Democratic financier.
If Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court it will have a profoundly negative effect on workers' rights, women's rights and voting rights for decades to come." Sen. Bernie Sanders, Socialist-Vt.
"A woman's right to choose is on the line, LGBTQ rights could be rolled back, affordable health care could be brought down, fair housing, consumer protections and environmental protections could all be decimated." JB Pritzker, Democratic candidate for Illinois governor.
"With Brett Kavanaugh on the bench, Roe v. Wade, affordable health care, labor unions, and civil rights will all be on the chopping block." Democratic National Committee.
"@realDonaldTrump is using this nomination as a destructive tool on a generation of progress for workers, women, LGBTQ people, communities of color & families, and to radically reverse the course of American justice and democracy." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
"With a subservient Republican Congress and a far-right Supreme Court, there is a real risk that the worst impulses of the Trump presidency will go unchecked." Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.
"Kavanaugh was the right pick if Trump's top priority was protecting himself from criminal investigation." Vox.com's Ezra Klein.
"Even CONSIDERING this nomination will cement the first American dictatorship." Joss Whedon, movie director.
"OK Ladies and Gentlemen who care for and respect ladies, it is official. The move back to Medieval Values, Shariah Law even, where old, bitter men get to tell women what is best for their bodies, lives, and well being is as done a deal as this is Twitter. Unless we say NO! NO!" Ron Perlman, movie actor who played "Hellboy."
"Brett Kavanaugh is a true Second Amendment radical. He believes assault weapon bans are unconstitutional, a position way out of the judicial mainstream, far to the right of even late Justice Scalia." Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn.
"Judge Brett Kavanaugh's extreme outlier approach to the Second Amendment would put in jeopardy the full range of gun safety laws." Moms Demand Action, gun control advocacy group.
"Judge Kavanaugh's dangerous views on the Second Amendment are far outside the mainstream of even conservative thought and stand in direct opposition to the values and priorities of the vast majority of Americans." Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona.
"With a Justice Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, we could see reversals of hard-won gains securing equal opportunity in education, employment and housing. We could see further exclusion of communities of color from participation in our democracy. We could see racism continue to flourish within the criminal justice system. We could see the elimination of effective tools for proving discrimination." NAACP statement.
"Kavanaugh will only further threaten to erode our nation's promise of freedom, justice and equality for all." Muslim Civil Rights Group
"In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, @realDonaldTrump has put reproductive rights and freedoms and health care protections for millions of Americans on the judicial chopping block." Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
"The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come and will morph our Supreme Court into a political arm of the right-wing Republican Party." Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
"If Brett Kavanaugh survives the confirmation process, he will rapidly advance a fringe right agenda on the court that will accelerate plutocratic control of our economy and politics, actively undermine the steps our country must take towards greater racial equity, and directly lead to the deaths of countless women with the dismantling of abortion rights." Jim Dean, chairman of Democracy for America.
"Trump's announcement today is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States." Statement by The Women's March, which referred in the headline to "Donald Trump's nomination of XX to the Supreme Court."
"Tonight 's announcement threatens to destroy decades of progress made by our nation's most vulnerable communities, and it locks in a white supremacist agenda from Capitol to the White House to the halls of our nation's highest courts." Maurice BP-Weeks, co-executive director, Action Center on Race and Economy.
"When President Trump Monday nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, he probably doomed the right to abortion, same-sex marriage and maybe even contraception." Jay Michaelson, legal affairs columnist at the Daily Beast.
The winners for most hysterical forecasts, however, are Nina Totenberg, legal affairs correspondent for the taxpayer-funded National Public Radio, and presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
Before Trump named Kavanaugh, here's what Harris had to say on MSNBC:
"If Trump gets what he wants here what's the court gonna look like the next 30 years? We're looking at a destruction of the Constitution of the United States."
And here's how Totenberg described the impact of Trump's replacing Justice Kennedy on NPR's "All Things Considered":
"Roe v. Wade might be reversed. Lots of federal regulations might be thrown out, might be a different, more less tolerant view of gun regulation and affirmative action. He was the fifth vote to uphold affirmative action in higher education. That could change, too so as R.E.M. once put it, 'the end of the world as we know it.' "
Thanks to the Investor's Business Daily for compiling this list!
My friend, Diana Feinstein, doesn’t like Trump all that much although she walks softly as she knows how I feel. What can I say, she comes from a family full of Democrats from around Wilmington, De.
But she does listen to me and struggles to figure it all out.
The very first words she said to me that day after the England visit was “Pat, did you see Melania’s beautiful yellow dress?”
Couple other people mentioned that dress.
All women because women notice this stuff.
Melania brought more attention to the Trump administration with that dress than much else for quite a while.
It is beautiful.
Thank you Jim Acosta!
At least you caused something worthwhile for CNN.
The image above serves to show who we are dealing with.
He's demonic and I'll do a brief summary of where we are with this cabal clown aka Peter Strzok.
First and foremost Strzok is and has been CIA since the late 90's. His FBI association is due to a pact that was formed at one time to have someone who could cross connect the two agencies for counter espionage reasons: see below:
The CIA and FBI have implemented a number of reforms and new procedures at the CIA that are designed to detect the slightest of early warning signs of espionage. As a direct result of these reforms, anomalies were detected that ultimately led to the identification of Nicholson and his alleged espionage activities. These reforms include:
The Chief of CIA's Counterespionage Group is a senior FBI official who has full access to CIA's most sensitive counterintelligence data and is thus in a position to fully coordinate the joint efforts of both organizations.
The Chief of CIA's Counterespionage Group is assisted by deputies from both the security and operational disciplines at CIA and has at least one FBI Special Agent on the Counterespionage Group staff full-time. Section 811 of the Fiscal Year 1995 Intelligence Authorization Act requires immediate notification to the FBI whenever there are indications that classified information may have been disclosed without authorization to a foreign power.
This goes all the way back to 96 when Strzok was running interference for bubba and later Hillary.He has always been their asset in the cabal. That's pretty key to realize that Strzok is basically CIA on loan to FBI. Therefore along with his SES credentials the guy is basically untouchable.
Also recall that Strzok's father Peter sr. was an arms smuggler from Iran and had a sincere love for the mullahs and hated the shah,well documented.Peter Jr. spent time in Iran and has a similar love for the place we think.
Another interesting tidbit is that his lover Lisa Page's mother is Iranian, another coincidence that should not be lover looked.
Thomas Wictor simply states that Strzok is an Iranian agent. his post goes like this: My gut is screaming that strzok was an Iranian agent and has been from the beginning: its here:
One of the greatest post I have ever seen was done earlier by GOP right here on FR.
Here it is:
To: longfellow; Liz; onyx; a little elbow grease
Obama was mentored when in Chicago by former Priest Gregory Galluzzo. Gregory Galluzzo graduated from the Spring Hill College in 1960, James Strzok graduated from there in 1964.
Peter Strzoks uncle is James Strzok, James Strzok was stationed in Kenya, where Obama once lived. Once Obama is in office, Peter Strzok, nephew of James Strzok, rockets right up to the top of the FBI, becoming the guy for Obama & Hillary, to destroy evidence & impact investigations. Sept of 2015, Strzok requested ALL HRC email copies from DOE, NSA, NRC, DOJ, NSA, US Treasury.
He was the last person to view HRCs deleted emails.
The father of Peter Strzok is Peter Strzok Sr. The brother of Peter Strzok Sr is Mark Strzok. The wife of Mark Strzok is Mariana Strzok. Mariana Strzok is the daughter of General James Cartwright. General James Cartwright, was pardoned by Barrack Obama on his last day of office.
The wife of Peter Strzok, Melissa Hodgeman whom, it just so happens, was promoted to the role of director of the SEC at the same time the FBI was drafting the exoneration letter for HRC. ...CIA? Dot-Dot-Dot.
More like players in a failed coup coup de etat...

Simply brilliant. It's here and the entire thread is just loaded with other goodies a treasure trove if I ever saw one:
They actually have some interesting Repubs to listen to and not Trump bashing sessions.
The London march was likely organized by Russia.
I liked this one in particular.
During his hearing you could not only tell Strzok was lying he was proud to lie and in those moments did not care if he was since he was trained to. You could see all of his junior FBI training coming into view as he felt he could fool the interrogator with his version of the truth as long as he pretended to believe it. He was well coached by the equally swarmy lieyers behind him and especially the bearded one who took ambulance chaser to a new level with his contempt for the Repubs. .............................
Strzok who is basically CIA,SES and FBI which makes him basically untouchable pre-Trump. Since he was a Clinton operative/asset since at least 1996 and possibly before he never feared anything or anyone and could afford to be completely lawless.
He's the consummate photo of the Cabals hit men and who they are.This is an individual who will do anything anywhere to anyone and not even think twice about it.He's above the law and let's everyone else know about it.Bray captured his essence extremely well.
My hope is this guy has a very hard fall.
Not yet impossible; time will tell.
We get through the elections, and then:
If the dems win back the House, it’s Impeachment. Trump is actually FREER to make his boldest moves.
If the GOP holds the House, then Sessions, Rosenstein, and Mueller AND HIS WHOLE TEAM, are fired. Wray is also gone.
My hope is that then the next AG is a hammer! Pound everyone of the conspirators.
Excellent analysis. "Agent" Strzok was supposed to report his affair (cohabitation reporting includes sexual relationships). Failure to report would result in a loss of clearance for any of the millions of people with clearances. With loss of clearance, probably lose their job as well. OTOH, if you report everything, and stop unprofessional behavior like his 333 texts a day (average), and get counseling, they generally will not hold past bad behavior against you, or will at least take into account some attempt to improve yourself. If in the adjudicator's opinon you did not become an obvious target for compromise by blackmaill, or let your personal sloppiness make you sloppy with classified.
Clearances and protection of classified information relies on the honor system because there is no other practical or logical way to ensure integrity in a democracy such as ours. Strzok has no honor. Zero.
