The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Psalm 143:10 KJV
Everyone is pretending the Anonymous Author is true when they should doubt the validity of this fraud. When anything is said by CNN or printed on a dead tree it should be assumed to be fake until validated true by an online news source. As bad as Deep State Media has been in the past, President Trump has driven the Three Pillars (Academia, Media and the DNC) completely over the cliff. These newscasters make One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest seem normal. Where is nurse Ratched and her fog machine when you need her?
This week the Three Pillars threw the entire kitchen at President Trump and he became stronger and looked like the only adult in the room. After decades of destroying Conservatives with street theater and their deadly racist charge, they came up empty with exposed tactic after tactic. It is killing them that someone can use their weapons better than they can. As a Repub you have two choices, you can lose graciously like GW did or you can win ugly like President Trump. There is no middle ground for those gracious Repubs who are irritated by his texts, there is losing or winning and Trump is a winner. Those irritating tweets are the best weapon in the arsenal and they do exactly what they are meant to do which is win ugly.
For the trained eye you will begin to realize those tweets about individuals are a thing of beauty. He has the ability to attack the individual before that individual is able to get a foothold. Unlike GW who was above the fray, mostly because he was less articulate than his father becoming a media punching bag, Trump sticks the counter like Ali keeping their noses bloody. Now they are back to he needs to be removed because he doesnt agree with our Maoist world views. If anyone needs to take a mental test it is those fake news idjits who have an overinflated sense of importance. A few of those shows should have their talking heads wrapped in straight jackets.
When your average Repub runs a campaign or counters an attack they want to play by a set of rules. They believe they need to be the adults in the room when in reality they have to fight back the way the Three Pillars fight. The Three Pillars fight in the mud and are going to make every claim until one of them stick. Their favorites are attacking you with what they are doing. Baracks speech was a perfect example as he accused Trump of being a racist trying to divide the races and taking advantage of a crisis. He also claimed Trump was a pompous narcissist who used the FBI as a political weapon. He was a perfect example of their ugly tactics to shape the agenda.
President Trump is a marketing genius and the Three Pillars are not. If they were they would analyze their presentations objectively and ask themselves if their nonstop attack is working? They would evaluate honestly what their jobs are really supposed to be?
Academia is supposed to be where the entire spectrum of knowledge is supposed to be investigated. To imagine the ancient philosophers like Aristotle would ban certain thoughts in favor of group think. We would still think the earth was flat and sailing ships across the oceans This is the exact opposite of knowledge and science yet what our Academia is. Academia has become a Stalinist form of brainwashing pushing the Marxist agenda for their utopian fraud. When they can show one place on earth Communism has had more success than Capitalism then they can promote their agenda, until then they have to give both sides of the argument. One problem is nobody inside Academia has the slightest clue how Capitalism works.
Academia has now become the largest thought Stalinists in history. They have purged all other thought from the campus and banished anyone with contrary thoughts from the square. They will not allow any free and open discussions to the point of banning all Capitalists from the campuses. How can you claim to be an institution of knowledge when you deny an entire half of thought and especially when that half has proven itself to be superior to the half which is allowed? You would think the people who run these institutions would demand all thought would be respected and all speech valued. Until Academia reaches the point of allowing all thought they are really not allowing any thought.
Old media reflects Academia only far more political. They do not allow any thought other than DNC groupthink. For any other network to divert from the Communist Party talking points they will be singled out for mocking and virtual hanging. The Dinosaur press are a bunch of bullies who will say and do anything to maintain their waning power. When the President tags them with Fake News he knows that label sticks and people considers everything they say as fake, genius.
Academia and media has destroyed themselves with their obvious agendas. Marxism has turned everything it touches into a Cuban wasteland. Both had their opportunity to be pillars of knowledge and respect and threw it onto the Ash Heap of histoir. Neither one of them can be trusted in any fashion since they will not allow one half of knowledge in favor of their own half. Once you go down that path there is no going back and you have become absolutely corrupted and should start over.
You would think they would be more upset than anyone their institutions have become corrupted politically. Unfortunately they cannot see past their own religion and march like soldiers on parade through Red Square. These are the people educating our children and reporting the events of the day as they goose step to dear leader.
The good news is President Trump has figured out their weaknesses and is showing America exactly who they are. He is the right man at the right time willing to get his hands dirty to get the job done. Rather than waiting for a counter argument to be push polled and delivered like usual in Moscow on the Potomac, he grabs his phone and in 20 seconds destroys their argument. This drives them crazy and forces them out in the open where he can squash them like the mice they are. Grandpa Reagan must be chuckling with that sparkle in his eyes over every tweet he tweets.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Kind of a mixed crew this week. We shall see. I’m looking forward to seeing Kellyanne.
Thanks for the thread as usual bud.
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 Pugmama’s posts. We hear she owns pug dogs.
Giving that awful Colin Kapernick a job as spokesperson.
Never, ever again. All over this country people are burning their Nikes.
To begin with, a bunch of assholes in the balcony kept shouting and carrying on. Yes the cops took them out but they were so organized there was a line of assholes awaiting to step up and do some screaming and shouting.
Class, people. The Democrats have class.
Liars, Kamala Harris ..she won’t win dog catcher lie, then lies more.
Corey Booker .this guy talks and talks and talks.
That Hawaiian babe, she don’t know what the hell she’s talking about.
Lindsay Graham did a nice job.
Grassley, the judicial committee chair, I don’t know, he let the Democrats talk and talk, on and on.
The Dems insisted on some kind of documents they allegedly did not get. They got many thousands of documents but seems they all wanted more.
This is the group who didn’t read Obamacare before they passed it. Now all of a sudden they want to read thousands of pages of legalese?
But hey, it was fun for a political junkee like myself.
-Sasse “limits of executive power”
The best questioner yesterday of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was by Senator Ben Sasse -Republican, NE.
He asked Kavanaugh what are the limits of executive privilege.
Kavanaugh had a small constitution in his hand and he referred to it. The nominee had a great narrative on executuvie privilege.
Because those Democrats want to impeach Trump, never mind that he was duly elected. So a few savvy Republican questioners are enlightening the American public what the elected President can and cannot do.
The WORST questioner yesterday, I am ashamed to say, was mine own Senator Chris Coons, who kept saying, over and over and over and over and over things that Judge Kavanaugh NEVER said.
Kavanaugh contained hiimself very well in what had to be a marathon session but Coons pressed his last button.
I shall never again purchase anything NIKE, either for myself or as gifts for anyone I know.
I always liked Burt Reynolds.
At age 82, Burt died yesterday. May he rest in peace.
Yes I did listen to some of the hearings on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Some funny stories.
Diane Feinstein asked why Kavanaugh why he went against the majority for the Sea World company for violating OSHA laws when one of their divers was killed by a killer whale.
Kavanaugh explained that OSHA laws were meant to control things that an employer is able to control.
Employers cannot control Killer whales who go bonkers all of a sudden. Some other examples Kavanaugh gave included running a punt, high wire circus acts.
Seriously, could members of a high wire circus act sue Ringling Brothers for falling off the wire?
Another funny incident was by Corey Booker.
Heh. Seems Corey almost became Spartacus by releasing confidential email of the nominee, a violation of congressional standards.
Only it would seem that those emails had already been approved for release so Booker’s Spartacus went down like a deflated balloon.
Finally, please, somebody shut up mine own Senator Coons, who constantly repeated Kavanaugh incorrectly, forcing the nominee to sputter with anger. Coons also asked Kavanaugh about Nixon firing Archibald Cox.
That was Watergate. I remember it well.
Coons trying to get Kavanagh’s stand on impeachment.
I don’t know her name or why or how she got invited there. But one commenter at the SCOTUS hearings yesterday told a story about birth control that made her cry.
It was the damn dumbest thing ever.
First, she says when she and husband got married they wanted birth control, not wanting a family right away and all that. They decided on an IUD, an “iintre-uterine device” that once inserted needs little attention.
Only her insurance, “due to religious reasons” would not pay to purchase an IUD but she’s all wrong.
Most health insurers, unless one pays extra, do not pay for birth control. The logic being that preventing births is not a health malady in need of a cure.
Anyway, this women said eventually her and husband got enough money to pay for birth control but “WHAT ABOUT THOSE WOMEN WHO NEVER FOUND THE MONEY?” she shouted.
I have no idea what that narrative had to do with Brett Kavanaugh, the nominee, except perhaps that the woman who could not afford birth control should not be denied an abortion.
It was all backwards and upside down. The gubmint has nothing to do with providing birth control. There’s lots of ways to prevent births, besides IUD’s and abortions.
This was the dumbest statement of all, from a pool of people chosen to speak either for or against that awful Brett Kavanaugh who keeps taking away women’s IUDs.
The Republican party in mine own Sussex county Delaware . Seems there were two contenders for Delaware’s only Representative for the House of Representatives. Delaware is one of the few states with more Senators than Representatives to the House. Mike Castle, if anyone remembers him, was once Delaware’s Rep to the House.
Currently a Lisa Blunt Rochester is Delaware’s only Rep to America’s House. She is up for election this coming November.
Anyway, the Pubs had two contenders on the ballot, a Lee Murphy and a Scott Walker.
First, I did not even know our one and only Rep. was also up for election, along with Senator Carper, who I hope loses.
I looked at those two contenders and began to choose one to vote for and I stopped finger in mid-air.
Damn. I hadn’t heard a thing about either one of those two. I wasn’t going to vote for somebody I didn’t know.
So it’s been in all the newspapers with pics of this Scott Walker WHO WON THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY!!
Why does that matter? First, HE’S A DEMOCRAT!! He ran on the Democrat ticket last election.
Second, he drives a car made out of plywood.
Third, they showed his victory picture and he was wearing a bathing suit with a towel draped around his neck.
The Republicans in Delaware must hope that Lisa Blunt Rochester wins the upcoming election or we’ll be stuck with a Representative to America’s House who drives a car made out of plywood.
My landscapers came over to do my yard and I showed them this pic and asked if they’d ever seen this rabbit.
Guy shakes his head yes, that it got out of the house, and they couldn’t catch it.
“It cost me $30” the landscaper told me.
We are going to go on a joint tortoise shell rabbit hunt because both of my dogs want to meet this guy.
If the talking heads become too annoying, the final round of the BMW is on Golf Channel at 8 AM EDT.
Sorry, looks like bad weather has wiped them out. I guess it will have to be the talk shows!
After finding that the state did not keep official statistics of rape cases in Sweden, she found an American website, GangRapeSweden.com which listed the verdicts of all gang rapes from 2012 to 2017.
She contacted the 43 district courts involved in these cases requesting verdicts and other details, and was shocked by the volume of information she received.
Her troubles began when she noticed a report from the website on Twitter, and retweeted it, confirming the veracity of the court cases listed on the site.
Activists began a letter writing campaign against her, calling her a Nazi. The university, with no due process, informed her that she had been removed from her position.
With an election coming on Sunday, Martinovski is speaking out about the way Sweden accepts and promotes leftist extremism even to the point of making the right of physical safety a political issue that interferes with rape victims getting the help they need.
Great choice with Pugmama.She is a brilliant lady. I have learned more from her and her posts than one can imagine. Just another example of what brilliance there is here on FR.
Not a watching golf kinda guy, but thanks!
Any fishing shows?
A lot of people are asking the question where is that missing professor Misfud and what was his role in the creation of Papadopolous?
Heres some stuff I dug up and posted over at AT
rodguy911 The Chappaquiddick Olympian an hour ago
Misfud may well be more of a player than we ever knew,there’s this:
What Papadopouloss Girlfriend Knows
Mifsuds disappearance prompted scores of articles, highlighting his background: his Russian connections, his professional work, and his personal life. Hes from Malta originally, and left behind his pregnant fiancée. But it wasnt an article focused on Mifsud that proved the most enlightening. It was an article profiling Simona Mangiante, the girlfriend of Papadopoulos, who took to the media circuit after Trump dismissed Papadopoulos as merely a low-level campaign staffer.
Earlier this year, Mangiante told The Guardian how she came to meet Papadopoulos. In doing so, she exposed what may well have been the beginning of a sting operation:
Long before Mifsud and Papadopoulos ever met, it was Mangiante who was introduced to the mystery professor while she was working in Brussels, in the European parliament, “as an attorney specialising in child abduction cases.”
She was introduced to Mifsud in about 2012 by Gianni Pittella, a well-known Italian MEP who in 2014 became president of the Socialists and Progressive Democrats group. I always saw Mifsud with Pittella, she says. Pittella had no comment. . .. When her contract expired, Pittella suggested she go to work for Mifsud in London, a city she loved. The professor offered her a job in 2016 at the important-sounding London Centre of International Law Practice.
Months earlier, Papadopoulos had joined the same London Centre for International Law Practice. Papadopoulos later connected with Mangiante through a LinkedIn message he initiated after seeing their mutual connection to the Centre.
The London Centre of International Law Practice was not Mifsuds only enterprise. Mifsud also ran the London Academy of Diplomacy, where his friend Pittella was listed as a visiting professor. But it is not what Mifsud and Pittella did at the London Academy of Diplomacy that is worth noting. Rather, it is what Pittella did in July 2016: Pittella traveled to Philadelphia to, as he explained to Time magazine, take the unprecedented step of endorsing and campaigning for Hillary Clinton because the risk of Donald Trump is too high.
“...doubt the validity of this fraud...”
I also think this is a hoax. The timing (late afternoon when the fake stories from the Slimes tends to break and also to distract from other news) is is suspect.
LOts. I miss most of them. But we are lucky down here I get a steady source of info and lots of it directly from the source and just started writing about it a little recently.
Can’t believe the gators pulled it out one more time against the not so wildcats of KY.
Is Alabama 14-0 yet?
HOWEVER, Florence is heading directly our way.
The charge of "racism" and label of "racist" are losing their sting, when falsely bandied about by the Left.
It is like calling someone a jerk.
"Well, the Jerk Store called, and they're running out of you."
And right on deck, Liz Warren, Chief Lieawatha herself, calling for a 26th amendment solution for Pres. Trump.
It's a LARP!
I meant 25th amendment.
26th is 18 YO’s voting...
