“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 Peter 2:1

The latest predictions of the Blue Wave are so predictable and timely they would be funny if not for the corruption they represent. Why would anyone in their right mind predict an upcoming slaughter of Repubs after five straight Republican wins and the lowest Dem House representation since 1920? What do they have to offer as proof other than the Party in power usually loses seat is no reason at all. This is the usual PravdABDNC groupthink hoping to change the outcome of an election which is pointing at the elimination of their very Communist Party.

The topper was this week when of all people Nate Silver came out with an 80% prediction the Dems would win the House although President Hillary is a bit skeptical. To think these people would have the gall to come out with the same old tired models using antiquated polling and make any prediction let alone the same old DNC is winning and the media will love me bromides is fantasy. If he were to give an accurate assessment saying we don’t know and our Primary predictions which we were off by nearly 20% at times would have been honest, no they have to carry the DNC water on the DNC networks.

As a pundit who has actually organized the knocking of over 100,000 doors and helped run campaigns winning 10 of 12 in a Blue state as well as predicting 44 of 50 states in the last election here is a real assessment.

You can bet nobody on TV can claim 44 of 50 picks in the Trump election. There is going to be another Red Tsunami going across America and could even hit some of the Blue states like CA, NY and IL. The fact is with the power of the internet and social media the networks have no influence and are only talking to themselves in their Blue Bubble. Why would any white male vote Dem, that is like a cat voting for a Chinese chef.

The reason Barack lost all those seats in his midterm was due to Obamacare and people realizing they made a mistake with Marxism. They were voting their pocketbooks and freedom and have been voting that every election since the Obamanation disaster. That is not the case with this midterm, if they are voting their pocketbook, freedom and a strong America then they have to vote Trump and Repub. The decision is not even close when you look at it, the only thing the Dems have is their old politics of personal destruction playbook. You are going to hear how Trump is the same as Conan the Barbarian and they are sweet as angels who want to give you rainbow kisses. They want to turn this recovery around and get you chained to their dictatorial mandates.

This election will be one based on do you want America to be great or on its knees. For the 40% of Marxists in America that is an easy decision and all of these pro-business moves such as mining coal and drilling for oil was sacrilege to their religion. Fossil fuels is seven deadly sins sacrilege for the cult. If you believe in Global Warming and America is the main problem in the world you have to want to go back to the Hussain economy and away from Adolf Trump.

Those are easy decision for those who invent reasons why America is the main problem in the world and self loathe for those sins. Wish those people would name one other country that did not have slavery in their history to give their biggest sin some context, but that would not give them the virtue high they have become addicted. It would also require people to be judged on their merits rather than their favored status group.

The Repubs have all of the cards on their side of the table and about to name diamonds as Trump. If anyone in the GOP was bright enough to go against the swamp they would realize President Trump is far more popular than any other person or entity in Moscow on the Potomac.

Average Americans understand everyone in that city are either tainted or absolutely corrupted by the money machines inside the Belt. Everybody in the cesspool is either paid by or paying people with their own versions of The Clinton Family Laundry as we now find Comey was making over six million a year as some phony advisor for Apple on how to spy with facial recognition software during the Clinton years. Even Bernie is a multi-millionaire spouting his power to the people mantra. Small wonder why everyone in the military and spying agencies want to work their way to the District, it is where the payoffs are.

So according to the echo chamber Punditocracy, the American people want to go back to that. They are tired of this boom economy and long for the days of high unemployment and a Mooselimb attack every month. All of the Trump voters have all gone away and seen the errors of their ways and are going to vote Marxist this time since that is exactly what happened during every election since GW Bush, oh wait; what? Yep, during the hyper-Patriotism years of GW the Party in power picked up midterm seats twice and we are being told it cannot happen under any circumstances leaving out this little detail.

Bottom line from someone who doesn’t frame his predictions on how many times they can get paid to be on PravdABDNCBS, there is a far better chance of the Repubs holding their seats and picking up some additional than losing the house. There is absolutely no reason to vote for the Communist Party and the Obama years are the perfect example. After eight years of blaming Bush for the economy now he wants to take credit for the Trump recovery? If he was so great why did the recovery happen the day he was voted out of office? Why did he not make it happen while he was in office if he was so smart and had some sort of economy lever in the basement of the White House? Truth is your average girl running a Lemonade Stand knows more about economics than the entire Mooselip administration. They would have had her shut down before she sold her first glass due to Global Warming.

The Trump card has yet to be played. President Trump flying AF1 around the country and educating the people on why this economy is booming and how to make it take off to heights never imagined has yet to be measured. Polls if they were to be believed in the age of cell phones and caller ID, only measure the past and never predict the future. How can you with a straight face say you have measured all the districts accurately when you were off 16 pts on Hillary vs Bernie in MI and just as far off with Jeb vs Trump in tiny NH? This is more of the District of Corruption trying to influence an election colluding with polling companies who are paid by the people expecting certain results.

There is a tsunami brewing from millions of people who have been called every name in the book for the past two years. They are not in the streets or polls but silently going about their business working harder than they ever have. Just like showing up for work ten minutes early they are going to show up at the polls and scream loudly holding up their ballot pointing at a corrupt monstrosity once again. There will then be the lowest DNC House representation since before the 1900s and we will hear every excuse under the sun explaining how the people never meant what they just said. The markets will skyrocket and the torch will be burning bright lighting Reagan’s Shining City on a Hill.

God Bless America

Brennan, Clapper and Hayden.

The Moe, Larry and Curly of politically appointed “Intelligence” directors...

Pull each and every clearance. The Trump Administration does NOT need their advise. They are forever tarred by their hyper-partisan stance since November 2016. It is shameful what these so-called apolitical “officers” have become.

And to think I used to work fro Gen Mike Hayden. What a pathetic fool he is now!

Commies are trying to project unicorns and rainbows and influence the elections by keeping us from turning out...that plus dead voters and multiple voters are all they have...they know it is a red tsunami. 1 week out, they and 538/losersilver will start to say things have changed and they don’t know why.

After the election, they will blame the Russians.

The meme will be “ Trump is a tyrant” for taking away Brennan’s security clearance.
What a week it has been! Seeing the full meltdown of the left and the media has been amazing.

This is a great article re the left’s inability to reason:

• 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.

Mentioning Bray again for his missives of wisdom.

Tuesday date-8/14/18

Oh my goodness, Omarosa wrote a book!

And like Comey before her, she lies and lies and makes a pain of herself.

What a nasty piece of work she is. They have her on video telling an ABC interviewer that she had never known Trump to be racist in any way.

That was before she got the job in the White House. Now she says Trump used the “N” word often and she had it on tape.

Only we’ve not heard it on tape yet.

She’ll have maybe three more days of fame then fade away.

And Elizabeth Warren, a fine and fair woman who would never lie about her identity, says that this country’s justice system was “racist front to back”.

Elizabeth Warren, a liberal native American, so she claims.

Finally, the fine FBI fellow, Peter Strzock finally got fired. This is the guy who told his female friend Lisa Page that the FBI would take Trump down should he win the presidency.

An awful face, horrible scowls, resembles IT from the Stephen King novel.

He’s gone but not to fear, he has a GOFUNDME page and is looking for money to help him get through the termination.

Wednesday date-8/15/18

Terror attack in England

It was in Manchester, England where the guy took a Ford Fiesta and mowed down 15 bicyclists.

Three people were injured. The perp was described as 29 and “black”. He was also described as a “British citizen originally from another country.”


A long section of Italy’s Morandi Bridge broke apart yesterday around 6am ET. 22 people reported killed, 9 serious injuries.

Authorities claim the cause is probably “structural damage”.

You think?

How about West Virginia impeaching all of its state Supreme court justices?

Suspended Justice Allen Loughry, Chief Justice Margaret Workman and Justice Robin Davis also were impeached, Suspended Justice Allen Loughery.

Seems like these guys helped themselves to state money whenever they wanted, with no accounting, using computers at home, failure to submit expense reports.

Draining the swamp. This is how it’s done.

Thursday Date-8/16/18

What’s with the priest thing? And top secret clearance taken away.

Seems a bunch of former Obama folks lost any access they have now to top secret documents.

Hey. People. I never worked anywhere where you could leave and keep access to that company’s private data. Most of us ordinary people have to turn in our ID cards and never come back.

But gubmint employees get to keep their ID and access to this country’s top secrets?

William Clapper, an admitted Communist, James Comey, Andy McCabe, Susan Rice (lies better than anyone on the planet), Bruce Ohr, Sally Yates and the fine, fine Peter Strzock all lost their top secret clearance.

As well they should.

In fact, any presidential administration that allowed leaving employees access to secret information should be processed as criminal.

Now about those priests, can someone explain what this grand jury thing in PA is all about?

300 priests are accused of molestation and I’m not doubting the truth of that.


And even if they were alive there is a statute of limitations so most of them would be sent to jail many years ago.

As of now, two priests have been accused and found guilty of abuse not restricted by the statute of limitations.

So why the big announcement?

It’s no secret the Catholic church allowed bad priests to go free, to cover for them.

But come on now, to be announcing this almost a hundred years after most of them are dead, what’s to be accomplished by this?

It’s just a way to keep making the Catholic church the bad guys. Even though millions has been paid out for these abuse cases….hey, let’s make the Catholics look as bad as the Muslims.

Bah, humbug!

Friday date-8/17/18

A great one has died. A bad one opened his mouth.

Who living in America today and over the age of 8 does not know of Aretha Franklin? RESPECT…..first of all, that’s her most famous.

She died yesterday at age 76. She succumbed to pancreatic cancer.

RIP Aretha.

The great Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, tells the world, in the greatest Freudian slip ever, that we can’t make America great again because America never was that great.

What an awful thing to say. If this guy thinks he’s ever going to run for POTUS he better thank again.

These liberals hate America people.

America might not be perfect but it’s the best on this planet.

On a personal note:

You could have knocked me over with a feather.

My granddaughter, the one with the nutjob of a mother who took all of her money last week, gave me some shocking news.

“I am going to join the marines,” she told me, calmly, as my jaw dropped to the floor.

Kaitlyn is now 14 to be 15 in December. She’s a bright child, has a mother with Munchausen and yes Kaitlyn knows all about it.

Kaitlyn is very, very pretty but so are most females her age. But few of them plan to go into the marines.

This coming Thursday she begins her high school’s ROTC program. I, Kaitlyn’s grandmother, was part of the first graduating class from that school, number 9 in my class out of over 800.

“We will all enter as cadets,” she said. “But in a few months I will be Corporal”.

Does she have any idea what she’s talking about?

I am not against her going into the marines. In fact, when I was her age I desperately wanted to join the army but they wouldn’t let women in.

Kaitlyn knows about her mother. Yes, she loves her mother.

But she knows she’s a nut.

Kaitlyn and I will someday tell our story. She’ll have to wait until she’s on leave from the Marines.

I agree with Bray. There will be no Blue Wave. Can’t wait to see MSM and drive-bys melt down election night this year like they did in 2016.

Morning AB and thanks for the thread one more time.
Already a bit of action this morning.I was in the middle of making a post here:
THe post was about a sheriffs deputy,Brian Green,who as fired due to his affiliation with a group that is super friendly to policemen.
“The Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s office does not support the organization or its ideals, and law enforcement in general has an obligation to treat all people equally, fairly and impartially,” the department said in a statement.

Erin Willey, a female deputy at the Clark County Sheriff’s Office in Washington, was also recently fired from her job for wearing a Proud Boys Girls shirt on social media.”
Evidently being a member of Proud boys or girls is the kiss of death to Sheriff Gerald A Turlich who apparently is up for reelection soon and being a never Trumper he doesn’t want anything,group or person getting in his way.
People in authority like this need to be fired and this guy is high on the list.
There is a gofundme for Brian Green so those who want to get involved should definitely do so.
What was so ironic is that over at Gateway I was trying to post a photo of the sheriff along with a post and suddenly my computer went offline!! I found this to be quite suspicious,what is going on.!!

I just spent the week outside a Boston, Massatwoshits military base teaching a computer class.

EVERYONE I talked to about the issue was surprised that anyone could keep their security clearance after they fully left government service.

They were shaking-their-heads confounded.

What was nice was most of these folks were not active duty but civilians and reserves who live and vote in the state.

Totally turned OFF by the media caterwauling!

It was good for me to hear there are still Patriots around the very place were our country was born at “The Shot Heard Round the World”!

Can anyone guess where I was?

Corrupt ‘elites’ like Brennan, Clapper and Hayden traded insider CIA information (collected at taxpayers expense) to editors and reporters in exchange for favors.

If someone in the U.S. Department of the Treasury was ‘trading’ government collected financial information to Goldman Sachs or J.P. Morgan in exchange for ‘favors’ for members of ONE PARTY people would notice and scream bloody murder.

Brennan should be in prison.

I want to watch this one!

Amazing what Candace just went thru vis-à-vis her recently being attacked and NOBODY in the media cared.

Had the attackers been conservatives and she a liberal, what do you think the coverage would be like?

The drivebys like to claim they’re not biased or full of fake news but it is as much about what they choose NOT to cover as what they actually cover.

Just Exhibit Z in a long list of evidence against them.

"I used to work for Gen Mike Hayden. What a pathetic fool he is now!"

Most current pathetic fools always have been pathetic fools. Hayden, as well as his counterparts in your Larry, Curly, and Mo trio of pathetic fools, were simply protected from exposure by being surrounded by a bureaucracy that protected them from complete exposure. On their own, their pathetically foolish nature is exposed for all to see (at least those of us who are willing to see it).
