“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10 KJV

The Roger Stone fiasco is the perfect face of the Deep State. For decades Repubs have understood the way the game is played. Dems can get away with any corruption they desire and Repubs are supposed to sit back and allow it. If Repubs are accused of the wildest accusation they are guilty and will be prosecuted into oblivion. Just as the Clintons can make millions selling Uranium to Russia, Trump gets falsely accused by the Clintons and loses 3 years of his presidency. These are the rules the press corpse has made and everyone in DC has accepted.

President Trump has fought these rules magnificently to the detriment of his administration and the destruction of many of his followers such as Stone and Michael Flynn. Roger Stone has been unfairly convicted of lying to Congress and witness tampering which if pushed would convict most inside the Beltway of Graft. How is Stone looking at the rest of his life in prison and Adam Schiftforbrains walking around a free man? The guy made up a fake phone call and read it into the Congressional record and is heralded by PravdABC? How is this not lying to Congress?

Everyone knows this was another DNC kangaroo court to punish an innocent man who was tweaking the DNC establishment which will not be tolerated. He was playing the media about the WikiLeaks involvement in the Hillary email releases and apparently was trapped into lying.
Just like Scooter Libby it is an investigation crime and not an actual crime and being selectively enforced. Most of the heroes on the Left such as Brennon and Comey lied to Congress under oath and nothing was done while people like Stone were targeted to justify a $50 million coup attempt.

At what point does the American people say enough is enough. The system is rigged for the Communist Party from top to bottom. There is no blind justice when you have one side being harassed by the judicial system and the other skates or is accessories to crimes. At what point does the people and the President say it is time to reset the rules inside Moscow on the Potomac? At what point does the people say enough of the unfair media and demand these schmucks get fired and hire people from both sides of the aisle not just one like Steponallofus?

Stone is another example of what is wrong with the media and fairness in America. Just like the President who is deemed guilty until proven innocent and then is not really innocent, Roger Stone was found guilty the minute he was charged. Now we find his jury was rigged and had no fair trial even by DC standards. If anyone should be charged with a crime it should be his judge and the jury foreman who lied about her being unbiased when she was a hardcore political hack. This is the judicial system and healthcare system they would have for you.

Stone and everyone charged for these phony charges need to be released and repaid for their lost time and money.
This was based on a fake charge of Russian collusion built on a fake dossier purchased and pushed by the Clinton campaign and the FBI. The people who should be looking at prison time if it was what it appears to be are those like Comey and Brennon who pushed this fake investigation. In addition, the media needs to be investigated and their FCC licenses pulled. It is time to eliminate this version of the fake media and start over. The Democrat control is obscene and would be obscene if it were the other way around.

The mediots are really who got Roger Stone convicted. They were active participants in the early morning SWAT raid on an unarmed 70 yr. old man and his deaf wife. What type of Banana Republic Gestapo not only uses that type of terror, but calls the local hack media to report it? This is the same Establishmedia who has been wrong about everything including the election yet are considered the wise sages of the nation.

Just like myself being the only one who predicted Trump would win when 99.9% of the echo chamber was predicting Hillary, I predicted Bernie would win six months ago when they were crowing about the inevitability of Biden mixed with Beto and Commie-la Harris. This is the quality of the news readers we have who run around in a little club repeating what each other says and thinks without the slightest deviation.

Now like I predicted when the fake polls had Comrade
Sanders at 15%, he would win they were laughing like he had no chance. Not only did he and does he have a chance he will win this thing and it is time the veil was torn off the Communists and they say what and who they are once and for all. They have been hiding behind the curtain since FDR and it is time, we have the vote between Marxism and Capitalism. It is time we finally had the decision between Commie Sanders and the Billionaire Trump, let America decide what her fate is.

The only thing which can trip up Bernie is his message is too 2016. America was doled into believing the economic malaise was inevitable. The people were lied to into believing capitalism doesn’t work and had not realized the economy could roar if the chains were removed from vital industries like energy and transportation as well as fair trade agreements meant to spread the wealth from America to less free countries.

Pre-2016 was another time and those clichés of the evil 1%, wait Bernie is one; so those evil billionaires do not work as well as before. Those 1970 chants Heh, heh, ho, ho, capitalism has got to go, are not as effective when everyone is working and making a living. He is going to have a tough time even with the AirheadOCommie chick spewing her hatred. The old tired clichés are not nearly as effective against Trump as they are against an establishment Repub since they will play by the DNC rules and Trump will not. He talks talk while they spew 1970 chants. If Bernie was forced to really talk about his beliefs it would shock most Americans. How exactly is he going to keep the economy growing? Stealing money from the 1% and giving it to the 99% is a policy not an economic policy to improve the economy.
Roger Stone is a symptom to this disease. The disease is a socialist establishment which needs to maintain itself.

It cannot survive with Roger Stones or Donald Trumps turning over rocks and exposing the Podestas of the District of Corruption. Just like Hollywierd and Weinstein they have ways of doing things and generations of corruption making those rules. They were installed by FDR, Kennedy, LBJ, Bush, Clinton, Barack and now they are being broken by Trump just like Reagan.

Whether you love him or hate him you know Trump is fighting the swamp. You also know the swamp is fighting him and leaving a trail like Stone and Flynn exposing themselves to the world. Weinstein and Epstein are collateral damage in this war and now Comrade Sanders is coming in to save the day for the Deep State, what irony. Now they are hoping upon hope Mini-Mike will pull off the upset, but they have no idea his money is not what got Trump elected and will get him a second term. It was and is the people are tired of the District of Corruption as well as the unfair press corpse and are cleaning house for the next generation.

Roger Stone deserves a fair trial or acquittal and given the same pass everyone in the DNC is given. If he lied to the FBI who cares, they were pulling a lie on America. Give him his freedom and fine him a couple thousand bucks while you clean house in the FBI and put a few dirty cops in front of a real jury. Perhaps the second term of Trump with a Repub House there can be the cleaning this sewer really needs so the Lady in the Bay can raise her torch for all the world to see.

Pray America really wakes

He was a rapist. Deal with it': Disney heiress Abigail Disney weighs in on Kobe Bryant's rape case past

I remember this story about Kobe Bryant's rape allegation.  Involved a maid in a hotel.  In the end, Kobe settled with the woman.

Still and so, my ageing memory and my intrigue by True Crime recalls it was a very suspicious matter.

But really, was it necessary to bring this up at this time?  He paid the price and nothing bad has been said about Kobe for many a year.


Below, yeah, it was real.

“First, I want to apologize to the young woman involved in this incident. I want to apologize to her for my behavior that night and the consequences she has suffered in the last year.”

And concluded with:

“Although I truly believe this encounter was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did.

“After months of reviewing discovery, listening to her attorney, and even her testimony in person, I now understand she feels that she did not consent to this encounter.”

Image result for kobe bryantAbigail Disney has weighed in on Kobe Bryant's controversial past, after actress Evan Rachel Wood and a Washington Post journalist were berated for tweeting about a rape allegation against him from 2003, just hours after his death in a helicopter crash Sunday.

Disney - whose grandfather Roy O. Disney co-founded The Walt Disney Company - tweeted: 'I haven't said anything about Kobe so far because I felt some time needed to pass before weighing in. But yes, it's time for the sledgehammer to come out. The man was a rapist. Deal with it.'


Father Of 7-Year-Old Texas Boy Whose Mother Wanted To ‘Transition’ Him To A Girl Wins In Court

I'm sorry but parents should not be changing their children to another sex than which they were born.

If a male child wants to be a female, or a female child wants to be a male, make them wait until they are an adult and take the action themselves.

And don't argue that Johnny will have an unhappy childhood if he doesn't become Mary.  Nobody really knows how a child thinks except the child.

This story is a weird one because James Younger's mother is a pediatrician who want to medically transition her son into a girl

A pediatrician?


On Thursday, a Texas court ruled in favor of Jeff Younger, the father of James Younger, the seven-year-old whose pediatrician mother was attempting to medically transition her son into a girl. Dallas Judge Mary Brown upheld an October decision that gave both parents conservatorship over their child and denied the mother’s request that the case revert to the October 21 11-1 jury decision that gave her sole managing conservatorship.

That decision was later overruled by Judge Kim Cooks, who ruled that conservatorship would be split evenly between both parents. But then the mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, and her attorneys argued that Cooks had acted improperly by posting an article about the case on her Facebook page, prompting Cooks to be summarily recused from the case., The Daily Mail noted, “In November it was revealed the youngster had decided to attend school this year as a boy. In a post from the Facebook page ‘Save James,’ pictures of James dressed in a button down shirt, slacks and tennis shoes were shared online. The caption read: ‘Going to school. This is what it looks like when JAMES gets to choose! *Affirm this! *

 Also, a photo taken yesterday, just before church. James and Jude proud to be men! Save James, save thousands of children!’” Georgulas and Younger were in 2010 and underwent in vitro fertilization to have twins; they requested the babies to be male. Georgulas later brought James to see a gender therapist at the Children’s Hospital Center, where she claimed he had wanted a girls’ toy from McDonald’s and then started imitating the female characters from Disney’s Frozen and asking to wear dresses, as The Texan reported.


Jennifer Lopez's political statement during Super Bowl

Children being kept in cages at the border was done by President Obama, NOT Trump.

I am not even sure this interpretation of the act is correct.

The worst of the Lopez performance was the display of her private parts while dancing on a stripper's pole.

Right before Emme Maribel Muñiz -- Jennifer Lopez's 11-year-old daughter -- started singing during the Super Bowl 54 halftime show, she had to crawl out of her cage.

She wasn't the only one. During the halftime show, which had Lopez and Shakira blazing through an astounding medley that culminated in "Let's Get Loud" and "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)," dark patches of the field were illuminated by several neon structures, identical to Emme's, with children caged inside. One by one, their cages lit up until it was time for Emme to open her door and sing through the empowering verses of her mom's 2000 single "Let's Get Loud."


Rush Limbaugh and Lung Cancer

Yes he is the Mayor of Realville.

For 30 years I've listened to this guy every single day.  If for some reason I miss the afternoon show I watch it on Youtube later that night.

I bought all of his Rush Revere books.  My granddaughter loved them.

And I love Rush.

My prayers for him will be many.

Announced on his show 2/3/20

It’s a struggle for me because I had to inform my staff earlier today. I can’t escape… Even though people are telling me it’s not the way to look at it, I can’t help but feel that I’m letting everybody down with this. But the upshot is that I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, diagnosis confirmed by two medical institutions back on January 20th. I first realized something was wrong on my birthday weekend, January 12th.I wish I didn’t have to tell you this, and I thought about not telling anybody. I thought about trying to do this without anybody knowing, ’cause I don’t like making things about me.

But there are going to be days that I’m not gonna be able to be here because I’m undergoing treatment or I’m reacting to treatment, and I know that that would inspire all kinds of curiosity with people wondering what’s going on.Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, suit and closeupAnd the worst thing that can happen is when there is something going on and you try to hide it and cover it up. It’s eventually gonna leak, and then people are gonna say, “Why didn’t you just say it? Why’d you try to fool everybody? ” It’s not that I want to fool anybody. It’s just that I don’t want to burden anybody with it, and I haven’t wanted to. But it is what it is.

You know me; I’m the mayor of Realville.So this has happened, and my intention is to come here every day I can and to do this program as normally and as competently and as expertly as I do each and every day, because that is the source of my greatest satisfaction professionally, personally. I’ve had so much support from family and friends during this that it’s just been tremendous. I told the staff today that I have a deeply personal relationship with God that I do not proselytize about.

Many will forget how nasty this person is. Rewatch her condescending manner at the kavanaugh hearings. She is the perfect example of Minnesota nice. All fake smiles and the soul of a Hillary clone without the cover of Billy Jeff who allowed her to work her way into politics.

Lots of news this week but first allow me to throw out a mention of the ongoing Freepathon.

If you have not contributed, please consider doing so.

The absence of commercials alone is worth a few bucks.

Now, moving on, the strangest news story of the week is the announcement that Bloomberg is considering Hillary for VP.

Wow, what a strange election these Democrats are having.

First, Iowa.....they can’t count the votes.

Second, Bernie Sanders is not even a Democrat and spent his honeymoon in Soviet era Moscow.

Third-Elizabeth Warren. The Ruling Class loves liars but us deplorables out here across the fruity plain, we’ve got liars in our lives but mostly we don’t like ‘em.

Fourth, come on Joe Biden no more deserves to be President than I do. Well, actually I deserve to be President MORE than Biden but so does anybody reading this right now.

Fifth, what the hell is it with Bloomberg? That fake story about how he plans to make Hillary his VP choice...well that just invites mockery.

It’s hilarious if it weren’t so damn pathetic.

Well thank you AB.

Actually it’s what I call a “culture” post on my Blog but I thought it had some good stuff.

Enjoy and find that scroll key comes in so handy.

Thank you AB for doing this thread so well and dependably. I don’t think you know how much we appreciate it.

Couple of thoughts while I’m in the mood.

Fist...AG Barr. At first, when he came out with that jibe against President Trump with the admonition that he couldn’t do his job because of Trump’s tweets...I thought that this was a pre-arranged public scuffle between Trump and Barr.

But after a few days I wonder....WHY THE HELL HAVEN’T ANY OF THESE PEOPLE BEEN PROSECUTED?? We know that McCabe is set free while poor Stone goes to jail for eight years. Comey writes editorials for the newspapers. Biden calls people dog-faced ponies on some such.

Can’t Barr start taking these cheaters down?

The other story kind of intriguing me is that lady on the airplane that had a guy punching her seat because she dared to lean the seat is designed to do.

And the airline took the side of the asshole behind her all busy punching her seat!!!

They design the seats to lean back. If someone takes advantage of that design they don’t deserve to spend their trip being bashed about.

I’m glad this story got so much attention.

Wish the story about the guy who ran into a Trump tent and could have killed someone got a nod or two from the Lamestream media.

This might be interesting. As for the rest I find it interesting that there is no Biden, no Bernie, no Warren appearances.
