“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. Psalm 119:165 KJV

So the DNC Mule-team has now moved from Russian Collusion to destroy Trump International. This is by far the most corrupt investigation America has ever witnessed as it is obviously being run out of either the Clinton campaign or Barack’s, Organizing Against America; to stop the biggest threat to the District of Corruption in the last hundred years. Of course PravdABC is crowing about impeachment over paying off a Bimbo after we were lectured by the same exact people for a decade how sex outside of marriage was a private matter and bribes, threats and intimidation were just part of the dance.

To think the echo chamber believes it actually has a place in the political process is to imagine the Titanic has another run across the Atlantic. Nobody listens to their childish analysis and non-stop screaming and yelling the crudest names they can imagine in their nightly trashing of President Trump. You hear the same screaming and angst from the most immature twelve year old when they don’t get to play another hour of video game although the teenager eventually gets control of his emotions.

Old Media and the rest of the Marxist establishment are not furious at President Trump, although they are; they are mad about the Silent Majority having the power to elect him. What terrifies them is not so much losing daily to him; it is they are looking directly into the abyss of their irrelevance. This is an institution which prides itself of forcing America to lose the Vietnam War, ignited race riots in the South, taking down Nixon and replacing him with Clinton and taking America to its knees under Obama. Just when they had America ready to accept their Socialist Utopia and a one world gummit, Donald Trump comes along and they become Fake News and his people love it.

These people are the spokesmen for the cult and reap all of the rewards any cult evangelist would expect to receive. The get big money, big hair and big fame to spew the talking points of the DNC as well as unlimited adoration by their followers. They live in the biggest mansion usually owning multiple mansions, travel to exclusive destinations and mingle with the rich and famous. Their power was nearly unlimited and they would make and break people at the drop of a hat depending on if they were worshipers of the cult of Marxism.

Marxism cannot point to any successes in the world, only managed misery on one level or another. The more Marxist a country becomes the more miserable and less Marxist the less miserable, so they need to have their followers to have faith rather than results to point to. Take China for instance, it has become dramatically less Communist over the past forty years and has become one of the two or three most powerful countries in the world. The people are dramatically wealthier although the leadership refuses to give them real freedom and instills the dictatorial stranglehold which is required to force a Commie system to work.

Conversely, Venezuela went the opposite direction and overnight went from the strongest, healthiest economy in South America and Marxism turned it into Cuba. The people lost their freedom and their economic prosperity by following the cult. They believed what the brainwashers told them which resulted in the previous leaders to be either killed or deported and the new ones to rule with an iron boot. The hardest cultists who led the revolution soon found they were the second wave in front of the pock filled wall right behind all the Capitalists who made the economy work as the cult purges the country of impure thoughts.

The Buggy Whip media had America halfway down the path of Venezuela and simply had to break through the Glass Ceiling and utopia would be formed in the evil USA.
Obama had destroyed the economy as he did everything he could to close the coal industry, the oil industry and big auto. He had the banking industry struggling for cash and steel was all being produced in China and Korea. He only needed Clinton to be elected, sign the Paris Accord to force higher taxes on energy and this country would be ended and the new Marxist order would be formed finishing the transition from capitalism to pure Marxism. All the power would be in Moscow on the Potomac and the Mediot power would be unlimited again.

Guess what happened to this happy ending, poof it disappeared and President Trump is feeding them broken glass and dreams every morning. Their outrage is never ending as they were so close to ending America as it was founded and redefining everything about it. There was not going to be cheap coal and gas as they would artificially raise prices and eliminate production to make in in the ten dollar range like all good Socialist countries require. After all, according to the cult fossil fuels are evil and need to be artificially high to both tax excessively and punish people for using it. This alone would have forced America into a massive recession forcing more and more onto gummit assistance.

These Squawking Heads were so close and now are having to start over on their path to Make America Marxist.

Again which is why they are running around without their Binkies. They have lost their Utopia, their prestige and their power to influence making them desperate. If they cannot win a simple midterm and get President Trump Impeached, their world is over. Donald Trump and his economic plans are the destruction of the cult as it exposes the lies they say to make the cultists believe. There is no such thing as Global Warming and their solutions are not solutions just as there is no such thing as Social Justice, the world is not Just and can only become just when a tyrant decides what is and is not. None of the cult is real and the country is beginning to see.

This is the threat President Trump represents to Ancient Media. He has made them more irrelevant than they ever dreamed. The evening news has gone the way of the steam engine and no longer has any value to the American people. Add to their technological outdating they are now being caught daily lying or stretching to the point of nobody believing what they are reporting. When your only commodity to sell is reporting the story and you devalue your own commodity then you make your commodity worthless destroying its value and yours.

What really terrifies the cult is it is not Donald Trump at all. What really scares them is it is a movement they can’t stop which it is. This is simply the maturation of the Tea Party which they fought a decade ago being understood by America. Now, even blacks are digging its message of freedom and prosperity and they are walking off the plantation. Once the message reaches everyone who is open to listen then Prehistoric Media and the Cult of Marxism will be on the Ash Heap of Histoir where it rightfully belongs.

God Bless America

Today’s theme: McCain, aka, NN, was a hero, to think otherwise is hateful and unamerican.

So I say, spread Bannon’s film far and wide.

Vote and get anyone you know hesitating to vote to the polls.

Hiya Alas Babylon!!!

Thanks very much for the Sunday thread.

Maria’s show, “Sunday Morning Futures,” looks like it’s the only one watchable!

Wallace’s panel is sub-par again. I refuse to watch anything that includes Marie Harf.

Jeff Flake must be thrilled with the attention. I puke. Won’t watch him and I can’t begin to imagine what the hell Nadler could possibly add of any interest or consequence.

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.

A shout out to Rodguy, a regular contributor and always interesting.


Tuesday date-8/21/18


The Manafort jury has as of this writing been deliberating for three days. Still no verdict.

The defense is all over itself thinking this is a good sign. I tend to agree with that assessment but you can take what I know about all matters legal and shove them up the behind of a flea.

And it would still rattle around like a beebe in a box car.

Poor Mr. Manafort, forced into solitary confinement and spending his days for THIS trial in a little jail cell.

And they let that guy go in New Mexico who killed a kid and was training a whole bunch of them to shoot up schools.

America was once a great country. Now we're filled with a federal police force that mistreats people and somehow they all get rich.


I had a some disagreements about this priest thing. Yes, we all know that priests notoriously molested young children many years ago. I doubt it happens all that much now in that anyone working church activities has to pass muster with "God's Children" and there must always be at least two people in a room with a child.

But in Pennsylvania they somehow found some 300 priests, all allegedly guilty of molesting children.

And Pope Francis apologizes to the world and hey folks, Catholics will forever and forever live with this.

In 2030, New York will announce the discovery of 800 priests, all accused of molestation.

Lots of money will pass hands.


Wednesday date-8/22/18

How about that 95 year old guy deported? Seems he spent much of his life as a Nazi Labor Camp leader.

Well he got removed yesterday, sent back to Germany, or Poland, his original birthplace.

Like the Israel capitol of Jerusalem, the "deal" made by America with Iran, the lack of monies Europe puts in for their own defence……like those actions, Donald Trump shipped the old fart back home.


Mollie Tibblets, a young jogging college student, was found deceased in a field near her house. Turns out some asshole illegal alien killed her.

We must have more illegals, people.

Ask the Democrats, they will tell you.


The Manafort trial goes on, with him being guilty of ten of the charges and a hung jury for eight of the charges.

All the crimes against humanity and our country, via the fine and noble Bob Mueller, have been pushed aside so we may jail Trump helpers such as Manafort.

After all, helping to get Donald Trump elected is one of the biggest crimes of them all.



Friday date-8/24/18

Anybody from Massachusetts who votes for Pcohontas Warren is not America and/or hates America.

Do you know what that B**ch said? To the effect that it's sad about Mollie Tibbetts but we American people have got to focus on the illegal immigrants and their separated children.

Serious? You folks in Mass. Going to actually pull the lever for this nasty lying nothing-burger? Mollie Tibbetts is dead by the hand of an illegal immigrant and we should worry about the rest of the illegal immigrants and their children…WHO ARE ALIVE I MIGHT ADD!!!!


Hannity revealed last night that Comey and Mueller, those two fine and honest FBI nothing-burgers, got MILLIONS….in one case a BILLION bucks, from Lockheed-Martin.

It takes a lot of snuggling to get all the players get involved with signing a contract and likely one might do anything to get the money.

One might, for example, investigate and absolve Hillary Clinton for her signature. Another, or quite a few others, might try to stop a duly elected President from taking office.

And all the while we sit and watch this craziness and do nothing.


Saturday date-8/25/18


Mollie Tibbetts’ ex-classmate gave birth to murder suspect’s baby

The headline above is just that as of this writing, a headline.

Weird, weird, weird.


I note that there has been a Twitter war between President Trump and AG Jeff Sessions.

Rush Limbaugh had a really odd show yesterday, but not in a bad way.

First, I love Rush. Let's get that out of the way.

But I remember Rush praising George Dubya all the hell over the place, saying he has too much respect for the presidency to get in a verbal fight with those who criticize.

Well we see where that got Dubya.

And what do the Bushes do just as soon as America elects its choice of a President? They reject him, Barb, the dead Mom, calls him names. Laura Bush, sweet thing, comes out just as rough.

Yesterday Rush tells us that he personally interviewed Jeff Sessions for his newsletter.

Then Rush launches into an explanation, just as silly as the one he gave for that coward George Dubya, that Sessions is very exact about the role of the Department of Justice, that he is not against Trump but goes cautiously into a judicial morass that would involve the Dept. of Justice.

All that being said, allow me to share my opinion of Sessions.

I think that stupid Twitter war between Trump and Sessions is fake. Further, Rush did divulge that Sessions has been in the White House several times over the last several weeks and his sources tell him there was no sign of animosity between the two.

Frankly I think the Twitter exchange on Friday 8/24/18 between Trump and Sessions was fake.

Not saying this thing is all a set up, but keeping open mind.

On a personal note:

My granddaughter, 15 this December and beautiful, unfortunately has a nutjob Muncheussen patient as a mother who currently lives with the crazy people. All with a little help from the gubmint, please understand, the gubmint that helped break up our family.

At any rate, granddaughter signed up ROTC for the Marines!

This week she calls me up via the most horrible picture in the world of anybody, FACETIME. She went to Quantico last Thursday, first day of ROTC, on Friday she had to run two miles and do 20 pushups.

She said she loves it and then, to my complete surprise, she shows me a PAIR OF MARINE BOOTS! Even more of an ironic smile, they were a size 4 and she did a close-up of the Mariine insignia on the boots.

She also had a patch and some kind of magic coin.

To add to the irony of all this, because the Muncheussen, with some help from the gubmint, tore apart the house I gave her, imagine that, ripped out the appliances, painted devils on the wall, the entire family, granddaughter, sone-iin-law, all dogs, had to leave.

Granddaughter lives in Baltimore now with her father. And the school she attends IS THE VERY SAME SCHOOL I GRADUATED FROM!!

Not that this is all that odd, but I was part of that school's first graduating class, class of 68. I was number 9 in my graduating class.

Me, grandmother, part of the first graduating class of Northeast High School in Pasadena, Md. Now, 50 years later, granddaughter going to same school, and is joining the Marines.

Can't make it up.

I'm surprised to see Roger Stone making an appearance on network TV...considering he's been banned from Twitter and all.

Amanda Carpenter is another name that jumps out...I thought her 15 minutes were up a couple of years ago.

Although Smith is a couple steps up from Wallace, no way can I stand watching a panel with both Harf and Williams.

Mama always told me if I can’t say something nice about someone than just say nothing at all. All I can think is a very Southern “Well bless his heart!”


RIP John McCain. I voted for once. I regret that I did, but then again, consider the alternative. You should have fought harder. Then, had you won, resign and made Sarah president.

So I do hope you now RIP, forever apologizing to God and the Angels about setting the Middle East on fire and causing Europe’s demise. Sure, you’re not alone there, but you had plenty of blame.

I’m in San Diego, so the only show available to me right now is CNN’s “Inside Politics.” Thankfully, John King is off, and Dana Bash is filling in. I’ve just endured Senator Coons reflecting on McCain and now Lindsey Graham is her next guest...

The news networks have been almost 12 hours non-stop about John McCain; looking forward to the same coverage for Hillary and Bill, and the list goes on.

And to think, after his undistinguished career at the Naval Academy and in the Navy as a pilot, if his plane had not crashed in North Vietnam most people would never have heard of him. But now, he is a war hero to liberals. Fortunes of war.

Manafort verdict? should be jury nullification because of the implied tampering by the media types trying to get juror names and addresses public. If somebody had put a stunt like that in the script for the "Godfather", it would have been laughed out as unbelievable. Now it's part of the liberal mantra for freedom of their press.
