The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the storm continued raging, we finally gave up all Hope of being saved. Acts 27:20
For the first time in my life, I am really ashamed of my Country. We are witnessing the most corrupt and vindictive administration and media we have ever seen. Most patriots are idealists who believe in equality and fairness who understand the constitution was created to protect the weak from the strong and now we are seeing the most powerful force on the earth attempting to crush the weak. This is what happens when end justifying communists take power, they use that power to stifle dissent. This is the exact opposite of what the American ideal is all about.
In the last month we have had scandal after scandal revealed by the alternative press since the establishment media is every bit as corrupt as the ruling class. First, we had final confirmation of the complete fabrication of the ridiculous story invented about Benghazi and the video. Only the most moronic fool would believe thei lie of the attack on 9/11 of a US embassy was spontaneous, yet our dutiful Obamedia reported it straight faced and even bereted Romney for questioning the fabrication, even though they were hiding the truth about a murdered ambassador. This is pure corruption inside the administration and the media.
Now we have had it revealed the administrations dragoons were systematically harassing groups that wanted to organize opposition during the last election. We had the IRS working as a wall to keep Tea Party groups from enjoying the tax exempt advantages DNC based political groups were given. They were singled out to keep them from the public forum to promote non-Democrat candidates. This was a well organized army designed to misuse the full power and might of the Fed to silence dissent. Anybody who values freedom should be outraged by this type of treatment by either party against dissent, yet we will not hear a peep from the left when it is their corruption on display. The media is a valuable part of their army.
The latest outrage is the targeting of reporters the Party considers a threat. Their spying on James Rosen of Fox News is an activity we suspect from Cuba, China and Russia, but not in America where we have such a thing as Freedom of the Press. Apparently, those Rights only apply to the friendly mediots. This is as outrageous a behavior as any we have witnessed as we all remember how often they cried foul during the Bush years, but we will hear none of the outrage from the most transparent administration ever. We are simply seeing the tip of the dictatorial iceberg.
The corruption when it is approved and encouraged from the top will permeate the entire organization and this is what we are seeing. This same activity was most likely happening in the elections offices around the country as people either looked the other way or encouraged voter fraud and corruption. Ever since the Tea Party stood up against his phony stimulus plan and Obamacare we have seen a war on these Patriots using their vilification and humiliation tactics. They even harassed Billy Grahms son. As most suspected these tactics were being followed throughout the agencies to the point of harassment and persecution. It appears we have lost both Freedom of Religion, the Press and Speech which asks the question, what next?
If we had the harassment of political dissent and organization through the use of gummit agencies such as the IRS and the Justice Dept, what would stop them from using the elections division? It is pretty obvious there is massive election fraud at the city level in most states, but is it being mandated from the federal level too, just like the IRS? You would have to assume that it is which means that if they have the only three or four states that matter we have effectively lost our Right to vote. This used to be what separated us from the rest of the world and now we are nothing more than slaves to the ruling class who have found an ironclad way to steal elections.
We now have a communist form of gummit which has organized the federal gummit to be an army against dissention. There is no longer a guarantee to free speech, elections or the freedom to gather together as an advocacy group. Anyone who believes in freedom is now an enemy of the state and the state is in complete control of your lives from birth to death. This brings us to the final solution which just like the IRS, they will now control your very life. This IRS will now decide if you live or die thanks to the death matrix in Obamacare. Welcome to the Soviet Union.
There is only one way to beat this unholy alliance. You have to organize your street and town and begin to win local elections. If you can find enough people who are willing to work harder than they ever had and stop watching the TV, there is a way to beat back this unholy alliance. You have to start yesterday and you have to be dedicated to taking back your neighborhood, county, state and country. There is a way to go around the media and these forces, it does work and it is effective. If you are interested, send me an email, if not stay low and hope they dont build the Gulag.
We can either, run and hide or we can stand and fight. Everyone has to make this decision for themselves, but there is a solution to this and America is able to see the corruption. We have to organize and fight this war for America the same way they have and look at the short term local solutions followed by the long term national solution. It does start locally and it does start with you standing up and leading your neighborhood towards the return of our Rights. Send an email and I will send the manual to get you started. It seems most Republicans just dont care about apathy and are willing to suffer the consequences. The first step is the hardest to take, send that email and begin your journey back to being proud of America again.
Pray for America to Wake Up

It looks like it’s going to be “the scandals are old news” week.
Memorial Day used to be Decoration Day it was the day people gathered after church then went to the local cemetary to decorate the graves of the soldiers that died in battle during rhe Civil War it went from being called Decoration Day to Memorial Day.
According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, “Memorial Day (the last Monday in May) is a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. While those who died are also remembered, Veterans Day (Nov. 11) is the day set aside to thank and honor ALL those who served honorably in the military — in wartime or peacetime.”
As a native of Illinois and almost-life-long resident here, I am ashamed that Dick Durbin comes from my state.
Thanks for thread A.B. The Muslims are acting out all over, Sweden, France, UK, etc. We’ll see if western civilization responds, or will it expire with a whimper?
Don’t forget Boston...
or Ft Hood.
I posted this on my FB page.....great bray!
A day to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you to all our service members.
Happy Memorial Day everyone.
As always, thank you AB for doing this thread, dependably and even on major holidays, witness this thread.
It will probably be fluff and stuff on the talk shows today but I’m watching and I’m posting.
Morning all.....I got some good stories.
I got a new job and it’s great.
I am.....tada...A JOURNALIST!!!
Yup, Holder will soon have me on his hit list.
How are things in Lewes? Bet there are just a tiny bunch of tourists gumming up all the roads.
Hell, I'm watching that!
(maybe they'll have some commercials)
Powerful stuff here bray. Let's hope the days of the regime start unwinding in a big way next year as we take back the Senate and increase our numbers in the House. Never in the history of the country have so many lies and mis-truths been perpetrated on a populace here in Amerika.Its up to us to turn the entire titanic around and head towards warmer waters.
"Impeach Obama Says Sister of Cole Sailor Killed in Terror Attacks
"The sister of Seaman James McDaniels, a sailor killed in the terror attack on the U.S.S. Cole wants President Barack Hussein Obama impeached
over his decision to withdraw charges against the al Qaeda mastermind of the attack."
"Mother of USS Cole Sailor Declines Obama-meet, Says "I Voted for the Wrong Person"
"After Obama dropped the charges against the suspect in the bombing of the USS Cole,
he asked the families of the victims in that tragedy to meet with him.
One mother refused, and now says,"I voted for the wrong person."
He died 15 years ago. God rest his soul.
It looks like it’s Amnesty Day” on the networks. The scandals are now to be sent to the dustbins of history.
What’s really most appalling about the way these scandals are being presented is the default position of the reporting media and most pundits too—that Obama isn’t really to be linked to any of them.
In the case of the IRS scandal, it’s particularly preposterous in that his entire political existence has been framed around using courts and agencies to attack enemies and thus advance his political fortunes.
He is a man who is void of any real ideas or insights, just a political hack in the tradition of Lenin, all tactics and no thought. And like Lenin, he seized power and immediately launched a civil war, which he has been conducting since 2008 from the White House and using every arm of government to fight.
By and large the Marxist agenda Obama advances while destroying opposition comes from Ayers, Dohrn, Soros, Axelrod and others, not really from him. In any case, WSJ had a story regarding the IRS matter and how that same tactic has been in play since 2008 in his campaign/adminsitration. It was probably posted here at FR as a thread earlier, but this is it in any case.
Obama video: “I do not believe it would be Constitutional ...”
Since when has he let that stand in his way?
Distraction? Why is TW back on the drone question and Paul’s filibuster?
It seems the Media had enough of the scandals and are trying move on to other fluff.
Indeed it was. On 5/24:
Bray....Once again your post has inspired me to move out of the depression and sense of helplessness as I witnessed what has been the march forward of tyranny! Thanks for putting into words so eloquently what so many of us are aghast at.
I am forwarding this across the country in my emails.
Romney was so right about the 47%. Lethargy on our part is not an option now.
The Muslim Brotherhood, “Obama” inspired attack is underway across the world!!! No need to comment more on Obama. He is an anti-American thug, criminal & America hater to his very core!!! That’s all you need to know!!!
No mccain. Will wonders ever cease?????? Did mccain die?
During the Nixon/Watergate matter the press clearly understood that they owed Nixon no grant of innocence until proven guilty, and incorporated the presumption of guilt in all its reporting.
No one said, “Well, you can’t prove Nixon was involved in any of this” on Sunday shows back then.
What’s going on now with Obama’s scandals is appalling. He is being treated by the press as if their outputs (articles, reports, op-eds) are courtrooms of some sort, with the disclaimer that “you can’t prove it” being presented as if that is part of the story.
This is nonsense and NOT the province of the press in any case. Simple facts need to be presented without such bizarre consessions to jurisprudence. A “stand down” order was given in the Benghazi matter. Who is empowered to give “stand down” orders? Right there is the reporter’s job. Was it given and by who? And if no one will tell the truth, who was empowered to give such an order?
When the government stonewalls, the press speculates—with good cause. Do your job. Stop pretending to be a court of law. Hit the bricks and get the story. Are you so STUPID, Mr. Media, to imagine the IRS could take such action as they did without approval from higher up? Could Holder sign off on an investigation complete with wiretaps of Fox News without Obama approval?
A free and independent press in America? It’s way past midnight now. In fact, this is last call.
Great time in our history to have someone the likes of Winston Churchill or Lady Thatcher along with President Ronald Reagan to arrive on scene and rid us all of the snakes that are destroying our lives and the lives of our children and grand children.
Memorial Day,for me, is a day to remember my fellow men and women who gave up their lives so we can continue an ongoing battle here at home to save our homeland despite of the corruption we allowed to grow like a cancer.
Bless everyone and keep your powder dry
Maybe it will be an amnesty for TEAparty people and native-born Americans.
“If only the Fuhrer knew!”
Dole on Obama:
Likes golf. Articulate, but lacks communication skills.
[Apparently, Dole hasn’t heard Obama trying to talk off-teleprompter.]
Dole sees his era as the good old days and sees Washington of today as a mess.
Poll to Freep
Should Indiana go forward with implementation of the Common Core Standards?
Yes - No.
Scroll down right side of page.
Nixon only ranted to Dean that he should “audit those sumbiches” and the IRS NEVER audited anyone... but Nixon himself was audited. obama ordered millions of Americans to be put under scrutiny. What obama did was thousands of times worse than Nixon and Nixon was no Boy Scout.
“Dole sees his era as the good old days and sees Washington of today as a mess.”
His good ol days of being a RINO is what got us to where
we are today. They chose him to run against the Toon because
they knew he would loose. At least they could have put
someone in their with a pulse but Dole was the next
“entitled” presidential candidate and definitely not the
best man for the job. They did the same with McCain and
If the morning talkies don’t churn your stomach this morning, check out this video of the new Texas Skyscreamer at Six Flags in Arlington:
Well, he ain't wrong. (Captain Obvious)
In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost....
...church was filled yesterday, always is on Memorial Day. They wore bathing suits and had sand all over them. They left right after communion as they tend to “eat” and run.
I got to rant and I got more in me, give me time.
On the thread topic, I’d like to say that the IRS lady came across as one of the most arrogant people on the planet. She makes her case, [pleads the fifth, thus no questions, she gets paid leave, how nice is this? AND WE HAVE TO PAY FOR HER LAWYERS!
the pubs need to repeat this over and over, show her awful testimoney.
This woman does not photograph well at all.
In the "good old days" of Bob Dole, the Republicans were a permanent minority in congress, and the Democrats dominated the congressional agenda. As long as the Republicans were good, they could get invited to the cocktail parties, and occasionally even play golf with the Big Boys.
The Tea Party and Evangelicals have changed all that. There is an opportunity for Republicans to lead the country again, if only the Establishment Republicans of Bob Dole's era would learn to lead, again, or at least, get out of the way.
Many opportunites to test blood pressure while listening to today’s talkers.
Juan Williams: Eric Holder is the exact right person to investigate the lawyers who...
Debbie WassermanShultz: every word out of her mouth
Really good stuff here Bob and Happy Memorial Day weekend to you and everyone here at our thread!
The regime has created a win, win, win situation with Jay Carney and the other carnival animals that show up to hear his latest spin/reinvention on what was at one point in time a truth.
What has happened is that there is no final ending to any story. Everything evolves. Its all in motion. Any statement made by carney/obama the rest is only good for that moment in time. The minute a statement is made it's old and outdated and subject to revisal.
How do you get away with BS like that? You need a willing as bray says obamamedia to cover your ass at all the time. As long as they do the regime can go around creating truth after truth after truth and claim its so.
Notice with the regime no story is ever final but always evolving,always "new information" is coming in,its a huge ploy/con and they get away with it over and over and over. IT prevents truth from ever rearing its ugly head since they know that truth is never on their side but always that holy water, bright sunshine that kills them in an instant.
“Can Holder be impartial in Rosen case?”
Holder has never been impartial in his life. Its always
been about race and state. Holder investigating himself?
What a joke.
Juan is IRATE that DoJ went after Rosen, but Juan defends Holder as not being responsible, even though Holder signed off on the investigation.
Britt accused Juan of ‘projecting’ — Juan giving cover of what Holder did and did not do. Britt tells Juan that Juan/we have no idea what Holder did or did not do.
[Juan managed to earn his paychecks from both News Corp and the WH with his convoluted defense.]
Thanks Mtnwmn, glad you liked it.
Pray for America to Wake Up
