“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10

The history of Oregon is unique in the West and captures the true Western spirit. It was originally part of the Louisiana Purchase then mapped by Lewis and Clark and was the first named as the Oregon Territory. Settlers came to Oregon traveling the Oregon Trail which was named for settlers heading to the West and the Pacific Ocean. The Oregon Territory stretched from the current California Oregon border which at that time was the border of Mexico and stretched northward up to the Alaskan border and East to the Continental divide of the Rockies on the East.

The entire territory was larger than Texas and smaller than Alaska covering over 350,000 square miles of land. It was later divided at the Canadian border in a settlement with England to avoid war over the acquisition of the area which is now British Columbia. Later in 1859 prior to the Civil War and in an attempt to receive enough votes for the Emancipation Proclamation it became a state as the rest of the Territory temporarily became the Washington and Montana Territories.

Oregon was the first Pacific Coast state to receive statehood and part of the agreement was the understanding the land would be sold to the settlers in the same manner as the rest of the states such as Ohio through an Enabling Act which enables the state to sell the land while the Federal Government maintains the forts and safety of the settlers. The Enabling Act was how all states were formed in the early forming of America and was assumed to occur with Oregon. It is how the gummit issues title and ownership of the land to allow the people’s ownership.

The Federal gummit did not allow the sales of this land due to a different agreement from the ones allowed to Eastern states. The Enabling Act was essentially put on hold. The primary reason there was no sales of over half the state was the lack of population living in the state since there really was not even the required ten thousand citizens to attain statehood. In addition the coming Civil War eliminated thousands of men moving to the newly formed state. The other factors the Feds maintained the land was the hostile countries threatening war to own the state. The British maintained a trading fort across the new border in Vancouver which is now the state of WA and had designs on Oregon. In addition the southern border was Mexico which is now California and was also hostile to America.

In addition to the hostility issues you have settler’s safety being threatened by a number of hostile Indian tribes which made building forts and bringing the Calvary to the newly formed state a priority. These factors put the selling of the land difficult if not impossible so the Feds basically held the lands before another country could settle it.

One of the reasons the state was allowed without all the required factors was to increase votes to the Emancipation Proclamation and other bills friendly to a more powerful Fed and weaker States Rights. The Civil War came a few years after statehood and all the temporary fixes to make the state a reality became laws as the war settled the power of the Federal ownership. The later Western states received similar treatment as the District of Corruption owns nearly half of all the states west of the Rockies.

These vast miles of resources have been completely mismanaged as we watch monster fires burning in the forests throughout the west. The smoke in September now stretches from Canada to Los Angeles as the dead forests are burning in infernos. There is one major factor with the fires in the west which is the fires are more frequent and severe on gummit land than on private. The Forest Service has basically stopped allowing harvests or any proper management of these valuable resources and is letting them deteriorate making them more susceptible to bugs and fire.

Oregon has lost more lumber mills than any state in the union while having some of the most valuable forests in the world surrounding them. These forests amount to around forty thousand square miles of forests and if managed properly would be sustainable for five hundred years and beyond with ten times the production there is today. The state basically has an oil field which is not being drilled and would refill every twenty years without end. The DC Beltway has no interest in making jobs for Oregonians and would rather listen to the people who believe forests are for worshiping.

The forests of Oregon are a symbol of what is wrong with gummit power and control of our valuable natural resources. In addition to the trees there are thousands of square miles of minerals and metals including land which was sold by Hillary to Russia in the Uranium One scandal. How can forests which are so fragile be controlled by a non-caring faceless entity compared to selling it for private ownership to someone who would take care of it locally. These forests would be healthier and more vibrant overnight as would the wildlife if it was sold to the locals privately from one to ten thousand acre lots. People could own their own paradise in the woods to escape the rat race completely.

What this is an example of is the major problem with gummit vs private. It is also the difference between the earth worshiping cult vs managing God’s creation.
This could become a symbiotic relationship as the forests become healthy feeding the economy of not only Oregon, but the entire building industry would grow as lumber and housing prices would be lowered due to increased supply and production. This is the highest quality lumber for building in the world and could be sold to the entire Pacific Rim lowering our deficit rather than shipping logs America could ship finished lumber.

Oregon is another example of the mismanagement of America’s resources by Moscow on the Potomac such as coal over the past couple decades. These resources are too big and too far away to be handled effectively especially in a hostile enviro-Nazi atmosphere. These eco-terrorists can shut down sales with a simple lawsuit against the BLM rather than if you had thousands of owners requiring thousands of lawsuits affecting people locally. These owners would have more latitude on their own land and could have thousands of tree farms making for a very healthy environment rather than the tinder box the forests have become.

There is a political group called Forests for which is taking on this issue directly who are going to petition the state to force the Fed to turn the land over to the state for sale to the public. None of the arguments of the past are valid and there are cases where this has won in the past including Hawaii. This group is in the process of writing a petition to give Oregonians to have an opportunity to vote on who should have control and access to the forests. There are four million people in the state who could own a piece of these forests and manage them properly to save them from the death and fires they have degraded into.

This petition goes to the heart of many of the issues in America. Do we want to lock up and worship our resources or do we want to be proper stewards of them?
This argument is what many of the conflicts of the West have centered around. This is the best solution to our mismanaged forests and if people want to help this group which has a new website called Forests for they can plug you into how to make a difference in this mission. Freeing Oregon’s forest land is what America’s freedom is all about.

Pray America Woke

I’d love to know what the viewership of these talk shows are. I’m guessing they’ve taken a big hit over the years.

Sorry about the formatting.

Meet the Press should be a separate line. Looks like I cut the tag!

• 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.

The great Putin Trump meeting——everybody was late.

President Trump asks Putin to have those 12 men Mueller wants to indict come to America and testify.

Putin agrees, but only if Mueller allows his guys to testify on how Hillary might have been part of the mess.

However confusing and whatever the case, this Russian thing is getting so old.

Mueller has found nothing against Trump in almost two years.

Why can’t they let the guy do the job?

And winner of the best fake award is JEFF SESSIONS!

For he pretended to be in love with Trump and let’s face it, Trump, like many folks I suppose, loves to be admired.

So Sessions, he played the part.

And as soon as Trump fell for the bait and appointed Sessions as head of the Department of Justice, he recuses himself of any investigation on the Russian collusion.

Jeff Sessions was Trumps first big mistake as President.

Friday Date-7/20/18

So with all the hoopla over that interview of Trump vs. Putin, I got one politico that jumped right in and condemned the President immediately.

It was Newt Gingrich, who just published a book. I don’t trust this guy although he has a somewhat stellar past.

He was Speaker of the House, author of “Contract with America”, a GOP hero of the day.

Now he worms his way into endless appearances on Fox shows. He and wife Calista write books.

To get attention, he will condemn the President in a minute…..saying…”over here! Look at me!”

He is an astute political observer but when he’s busy doing book tours and promoting same, he’ll say anything to get attention.

I am going to turn him off next time I see or hear the guy.

Saturday Date-7/21/18

Judge Jenine Piro was a guest on that perfectly horrible show-”The View”.

With that wonderful, sweet and kind lady, Whoopi Goldberg, who likes to brag about her seven abortions.

She’s a really bad person this Goldberg woman.

She should be fired for how she yelled and screamed at Judge Jenine and finally told her to get the “F” our of the building.

I’m anxious to see how this turns out.

Pity those poor folks who died when that “Duck” boat capsizes.

First, I must ask….don’t those people have to wear life jackets?

Second, what the hell are they doing out in that kind of weather?

The investigation is ongoing and as of this writing there are still people missing.

Brilliant as usual. It's pieces like this that our president will likely read or be alerted to that helps change the status quo.We do have a potus now who is willing to change things and making Oregon great again with 500 years of timber is right up his alley so don't give up.

for the most part, the guest lineups are absolutely pathetic. Lindsey Graham? how many times does this guy get on these shows?

it’s obvious the FISA warrant stories won’t be of interest.

Newt is always 80/20 to our benefit. Looks like he screwed up again,not too unusual.
Here is someone who did not screw up and whose video needs to be seen.It's Joe Kernen who interviewed the President on the meet between Putin and Trump in Helsinki.He got it right and its here:
Among the highlights were the fact that Trump considered the most important topic of the meet was the nukes.Between the US and Russia are 90% of the nukes in the world.Does a topic such as this get any bigger? I don't think so.Would we want Putin to get so pissed off at us that he gives nukes to all the wrong people.I don't think so.
Is a warm and friendly relationship among mortal enemies required in this venue? Without a doubt! If anyone can make a deal with Putin its Trump. Putin knows it and Trump knows it. So all those who thought Trump should have come down hard on pootie are basically “IDIOTS!!”
Also during the interview Trump told how how he will produce four million new jobs,revitalize the economy and how we got in the mess of trade imbalances to begin with. That happened because every time any country put a tariff on goods coming from America into their country “there was no one in the US to talk to.” So they kept doing more and more and more until we are where we are.Only Trump has had the guts to do something about it.

Thank you RG, it was one of my favorite I have written. Extremely hard to write and make current for everyone considering it is a local issue, but really a national one when you dig in.

Nothing like going to San Antonio on what is, on average, the hottest day of the year. I didn’t see a lot of window air conditioners in your picture.
