“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

In him and through faith in him we may approach God with Freedom and confidence. Eph 3:12

This week was one of the most enlightening weeks in a long time. It all began with the Collins declaration of his homosexuality and the ensuing virtual parade like he just conquered Iwo Jima as the poor put upon victim went against those intolerant Conservatives. Every media outlet was on full propaganda mode promoting another one of their favorite victim groups against the country they hate so openly. Let us know when one of these self promoters declares their homosexuality in an Islam country and then they can be labeled courageous. The only one who was attacked was the commentator who said homosexuality is a sin that was courageous.

What was enlightening was how dumb and angry liberals are when I became involved in an accidental website food fight. For the past twenty years I have been contributing to the main Oregon Duck sports website and have always been one of the main contributors to that site as a sports junkie. I always enjoyed writing about my beloved Ducks and would usually make up nicknames and have fun with the sports talk. I have always left off the politics other than a non PC nickname but would go there to get away from politics and use it as a diversion. Liberals do not have the ability to leave the politics alone and as many can guess the University of Oregon has a large number of them although the sports fan base is far less liberal than the University in general.

The basketball player of course lit the fuse for these libs as one of them had to shove it in everyone’s face as he made it look like he was some sort of huge hero. Most of us ignored it and figured it would fade away until he and the liberals began crowing and antagonizing as they became very obnoxious with their comparisons to Jackie Robinson and then attacking the Bible. After they attacked one of my longtime friends and called the Bible a book of fairytales it was time to join in the fray. It had been years since I had been in a virtual food fight but, the format returned it is just I had forgotten how angry and closed minded they were, but the thing which really struck me was how dumb they were. While I was quoting studies and statistics on the exaggeration of heterosexual AIDS transmission and risk factors of the homosexual lifestyle, they were doing nothing but calling names and no comebacks. It was a truly amazing display of ignorance.

Is it that liberalism is so mentally easy or do dumb people naturally move towards socialism? The argument was why does the gummit promote a lifestyle which is so dangerous, unhealthy and shortens your life rather than heterosexuality? The next argument we went into was the exaggeration of the heterosexual AIDS epidemic which never occurred. When I pointed out a homosexual male has a ten thousand times greater chance of contracting AIDS than a hetero they called me a bigot. They attempted to back that up with CDC data however they left off an important caveat from the data which changed the findings completely and I was able to find a deeper study of the CDC data which proved there were no actual findings of a transmission of AIDS from female to male which was the point.

After they were proved wrong it became a name calling contest which was what I found to be the most interesting part. These people are not very smart intellectually. Just like every other belief in communism, they become the arbitrators of what is and isn’t truth. Just like they have decided whether global warming is true, they also decide who is and is not intelligent. When you have universities and schools which are filled with like minded liberals who are the deciders of intelligence, who do you think they are going to decide what is and is not the definition of intelligence. Outside of the hard sciences of math and physics there are very subjective standards of what defines intelligence as well as who goes on to further their educational career. This is why liberals believe they are more intelligent than conservatives since they are the ones who have set up the standards which require everyone directly or indirectly to think exactly as they do.

When you truly look at liberalism there is very little actual intelligence, rather we have a large circle of wagons of people all covering for each other. Looking at the mediots you see people who are not that bright reading the news or writing some silly columns which are either trying to cover for their politicians or laughing at Conservatives, nothing else. In our broadcast news we have people who may be attractive physically, but they move up the ranks by using the formula of promoting liberalism to sound intelligent without any real skills of debate or influential speaking. Most try to sound intelligent but if you really break down what they are saying are not that bright.

A perfect example would be Chris Mathews. He may talk fast and is bombastic, but when you break down what he says there is no real intelligence there. He is a bully and a name caller who passes himself off as an intellectual and by the liberal establishment’s definition he is. If you make fun of or laugh at other people and call them names it makes you appear to be more intelligent than them. This is the primary formula for the establishmedia.

When you look at the liberal political landscape you find even less intelligence. Can anybody say Pelosi or Reid is intelligent? Once again we have people who follow the formula of calling names and using corruption to make it into the highest levels of gummit and mess things up. They both basically sound like morons but they don’t have to worry since they are part of the liberal establishment and the Three Pillars (academia, media and the DNC) will promote their agenda without questions.

This is exactly how we got Obama and why this country is heading down the toilet. He is a product of this false intelligence quotient which overstates a person’s intellect if they agree with the communist agenda. They get bonus points for hating America and point out all of its faults and none of its positives. He is not an intelligent man but a result of this system and affirmative action to take advantage of White Guilt. We have a very average or less than average intellect running this country who is surrounded by the same inflated intellect around him. None of them know how capitalism works or even care, they have been told there is a superior form which is Marxism and that is how they are attempting to solve our problems and we are now suffering the consequences.

If they were as intelligent as they have been told their entire lives, how come they have not solved the economic problems in five years when dummy Bush solved it in two? After decades of them telling us they had all the answers why don’t they have this answer? The reason is, they do not have any of the answers and have fooled America into believing they are more intelligent than they are. They have built a system which is a giant circle of wagons shooting anyone who disagrees with their world view while labeling themselves the intellectual powerhouses. Just like most of today’s science, they are an agenda driven fraud.

Pray for America to Wake Up

Looks like Face the Nation will be mostly about gays in sports with a nod to Benghazi since Issa is scheduled.

former NFL lineman Esera Tuaolo; retired tennis players Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova; Ted Leonis, owner of the Washington Capitals, Wizards and Mystics; Domonique Foxworth, president of the NFL Players Association.


Gays in sports. Maybe the biggest nothing topic on talk radio moves to the Sunday morning echo chamber.

BTW: Is there any evidence Collins is really gay? I mean, he announced he was gay and (1) his girlfriend of 8 years showed up and (2)his brother said he had no idea. Where’s his BOYfriend? Is he the guy who was calling Manti Teo every night?

I’ll say one thing though: Obama really perked up when he heard about Collins. He seems to have a thing about tall black hoops dudes, doesn’t he?

I wonder if Bob Schieffer will mention that. Ha!

(When is the Collins book deal gonna be announced?)

Great job as usual Bray.

Even ESPN was salivating over the new “hero” for coming out. When it came Charles Barkley’s turn, I expected he would not be so bowled over. However, he drank the coolaid, said the guy is heroic and inspirational. But then said I’ll play Devil’s advocate and say that if someone says he does not like the gay lifestyle they should not be crucified. But then he lapsed into I won’t call him, dumb or ignorant... Another commentator seemed to sympathize how difficult it is for most of us to shed hundreds of years of religious training to believe one way. Gee I’m glad we are understood.

Since this weekend appears to be all about the “Queers”. When will the broadcast community start cheering on their Queers to go public?

Who should we start with? How many Queer broadcasters are there on NBC, CBS, ABC< CNN, etc.

Saw the first name on the morning line up and nearly lost my breakfast cereal.

Him AGAIN?

==

Tom Cotton (R-AR) seems to be getting some face time, considering he is a n00b in Washington. He has appeared on these newstalkies several times since he won his election.

FTN

A bunch of sports people. Wanna bet the morning topic there is the first gay player in the pros?

TW

Seems to have the most promising [as in new, interesting, not McCain and Schumer and Durbin and Graham, line up.

==

Benghazi seems to be boiling again. Since it has been 8 months, will the new hearings really accomplish anything?

I had a Cap Hill press pass back in the days Matthews worked as a staffer and he was pretty typical even back then—he was only really good at spin and half-truths, and really had no discernible intelligence. He’d never done anything in life, which is also typical on the Hill, where NETWORKING is everything and substance is MIA.

The “smart” people on the Hill are the lobbyists who write all the laws and even the arguments for the laws. If you picture a criminal hierarchy where the “brains” of the operation figure out how the heist can be pulled off but then shift all the risk to dimwitted henchmen who will take the fall if something goes wrong you’ll have an accurate picture of how things work in Congress.

Also, there is a staggering amount of shadowy, semi-illicit sex going on up there but who’s watching?

Yes, but as soon as he crossed the Potomac, he contracted Potomac Fever. It happens to all of them. Many of them exhibit rapidly worsening symptoms. After a couple of re-elections, many of them forget their constituents in favor of their new friends across the aisle.

Look at how many others got to Washington as conservatives and soon transformed into moderates. [Moderate is party elitist for leaning leftward.]

Political power is seductive. Many good persons have sold their souls to get it, to keep it.

Besides Fox, I wonder how many of them will talk about Benghazi. Judging from Guests, it appears that some networks want to waste time talking about that Ex NBA Player claiming he is Gay (Which I still don’t believe).

The Orthodoxy. The Left here operates by the same basic principles it operated by in 1920s Russia and 1960s China—the ruling elites feed the agenda down to the intelligentsia (media and academia) who then codify it all as “fact,” the nomenklatura turn it into “policy,” the appartchiks carry the water for it and ferret out the naysayers (who keep thr gulags full and the dunce caps headed), and the useful idiots figure out soon enough what insanity they need to “go along” with — or else.

The Orthodoxy. Don’t leave home without it.

BINGO!!.....it's the reason why it's so frustrating debating a liberal....No amount of logic or proof can sway them from “group think”.....to admit even a minor flaw in their reasoning or thinking, absolutely crushes their egos and self esteem!!!.....
Hence the name-calling as their last line of defense

Ive come to accept that as the “white flag” of an intellectual discussion....you've proved your point!!..anymore discussion will only result in more and stronger personal attacks...

That is a developed tactic. It even happens here on FR, especially during election cycles or heated legislation events. Those who use the tactic do so because they are unable to defend their positions in discussions. They don't have facts or knowledge, so they bully and become belligerent.

They are easy to spot. On FR, for example, they attack other posters (making it personal) rather than attacking the content of posts. Many of them are very adept at using the alinskyest tactics.

The tactic is especially used by the community organizer types, the progressives, the Liberals, and those pushing PC agenda issues.

The record low for May in my small town in east Alabama was 41 degrees. This morning at 5:31 AM it was 38.2 degrees.

Amazingly cold. I had to turn the a/c off and turn the heat back on.

Thanks Paleo for taking it from theory to real life. It really is Moscow on the Potomac.

They no longer need Gulags or firing squads since they can do it virtually with the TV. They simply destroy lives on the TV with their talk shows and keep everyone in line or discredited like they have done to Palin, Clarence Thomas or any Conservative.

Brilliant stuff again bray!

How we got obama, obamacare and the rest however is a little more complicated.

As you say the average liberal is a mind-numbed robot.Rush does not state that liberalism is a mental disease for nothing. It truly is.

Along with the muzzies liberals are some of the most brainwashed individuals on the planet. The question is how did they get that way?

It's through a slick manipulation of every phase of our society/life from religion to education, to voter intimidation to programming our every move through legislation, judicial decree and finally altering the results at the ballot box.

We are up against a jaded, viscous enemy who uses political victory after victory to help destroy us and a once great nation.

Destroy their politics and they will fold.

WOW!

Very lively debate on FNS featuring a new face Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R) and an obvious lying RAT apologist Congressman Steven Lynch.

It is definitely “must see TV” and way too rapid fire and amazing for me to monitor and type at the same time.

Chaffetz is very sharp and able to articulate the many points he wanted to cover including how the State Dept was intimidating witnesses (survivors)...four people are dead, Hitlary’s signature on a major document and State Dept refusal to release document as well as their intimidation tactics while allowing review of non-classified documents.

Ughhhh!

I am rereading Orwell’s 1984, while I am also taking a course discussing the European world prior to World War 1. The amount of delusion that so-called intelligent people can absorb and support is not new. For example, Anarchists were celebrated in the 1890s in many countries. It is nauseating and frightening, but it happens.

We are in the middle of a massive culture war right now.

‘Popular’ culture is making too many Americans into the ‘proles’ of 1984, to use another example.

McCain decries the fact that foreigners on visas can overstay without any repercussions, and can come and go (including trips out of the country) whenever they want. We need border security and we need to enforce the immigration laws. But this has nothing to do with illegals who are here.

Great insight Bob.

It is the guys in the background who really call the shots. Even in the administration its valjar who runs the govt., the bent axel political strategy and plouffe,jay carney and others in charge of cleaning up the damage.

Zero remains a front man who fund raises, campaigns, plays golf, with Reggie, basketball and goes on vacations with his supposed wife.

Arkansas got its first ever May snow accumulation last week.

Many locations throughout the Nation had record lows.

I hope the hearings on Wednesday and the three whistle blowers are talked about today. Benghazi is not dead and will not die until truth prevails.

I am going to be looking for a coordinated plan of questioning from the Repubbies. I did hear Greta address this with one - name escapes me - he said this would happen. The SOP in these things is for the member to drone on and on for half his time, finally frame a question, and get a half baked answer (which consumes the balance of the time).

The committee Rep's need to cut to the chase, with a laser focus.

Morning Mesta

Good sunny Sunday here, how ya doin?

Just as McCain came on FOX, the phone rang, I was saved by the bell...Although the closed captioning revealed he had some interesting things to say...I can’t stand to hear his voice or watch his smarmy face.

I guess I also have MFS...McCain Fatigue Syndrome.
