The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Rom. 5:2
The latest revelation of the IRS scandal that it is not even being investigated should terrify everyone. When an FBI official was asked who was leading the investigation and he could not even answer it, you know there is no investigation into this targeting of Americans. You can bet he would know who the lead investigator was if there was any pushback on a liberal protected group, but against the Tea Party they are on their own. This is who the FBI and the InJustice department are trying to stop.
While FBI Director Mueller was being questioned on Capital Hill he was asked how the investigation was going and how many agents were looking into it. This is one of the biggest scandals in decades that Americans were being singled out and infringed upon because they were dissenting against Obamacare. They were denied the ability to raise funds in the public square because a public agency was being used as a political bully and breaking numerous laws. It is obvious these laws broken and there was a conspiracy to break these laws which is what the FBI is supposed to stop and investigate the extent.
Director Mueller was axed about his investigation and he basically told Congress to get lost. He said he did not know how many agents were investigating and when asked who was heading up the investigation, said he didnt know who was even leading the investigation. Director Mueller and the FBI are part of the conspiracy and are not going to look into this obvious abuse of power as he abuses his position. We now have complete corruption throughout the IRS, Justice, FBI, CIA, State and every other alphabet in the District of Corruption.
Welcome to Chicago politics, the DNC has recreated Chicago corruption around the country and centralized it in DC. Anybody who is not a Communist Party member is now an enemy of the State and will be treated as such. As the noose tightens and the country begins to tolerate the abuse of power we will see a greater and greater degree of intolerance towards Freedom loving Americans. When you have the FBI telling Congress to go fly a kite and the IRS now has full reign on the citizens we are one step away from a dictatorship in the image of Stalin or Castro.
All week we heard about the massive mining of peoples cell phone and computer information and how it is only the call placements, not the actual calls. Why should we believe them? Shouldnt we believe the worst with this regime and hope for the best? Shouldnt Congress and mediots ask how bad it is, rather than tell us not to worry there are safeguards similar to the ones the IRS has? Anybody who believes that spying on Americans is a good idea and for our safety is giving up safety for freedom and receiving neither.
When you have this much massive corruption running throughout the gummit you are bound to see pockets of it revealed. It appears the DNC has corrupted every department and has become one giant political machine built to destroy all others. It is being masked as stopping terrorists, but what it is really designed to do is to centralize power throughout America. It has shown how it coordinates power in the Benghazi cover-up, the IRS and now the data mining scandal. The IRS targets the Tea Party like the True the Vote woman and then is harassed by the FBI, EPA and ATF in one coordinated attack. Then when people ask for protection from this abuse the FBI tells them and Congress to forget any protection from them.
The worst part is the ones who are being abused are the ones who earn and pay the taxes so the abusers can corrupt the system. The people who go out every day and play by the rules and bust their hump so there can be a public system are the ones who are being targeted for attack. The ones who slave away and then give these abusers forty percent of what they earn are being targeted by the ones who they are paying to protect them. At what point do they say enough is enough and go Galt on this corrupt game which is being stacked against them? What are they getting out of this other than harassment and abuse?
What we are seeing when these officials go before our Representatives in Congress, like we saw from Director Mueller or the IRS Director is a giant middle finger to the American people. They dont believe in the least bit they work for us but, we work for them. As long as we keep our heads down and our mouths shut they wont have to abuse us, but if we dare to protest or organize for dissent we will be open for the full power of the gummit at our door. They dont need gulags or prisons, they have everything they need in our houses to control and monitor us. Gulags are for amateurs they can simply punish us and make us use more of our earnings to fight them until we are forced to accept their punishment through audit and investigation. Welcome to the Soviet United States where we are all free, its just that some are more free than others.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
While writing this I was thinking, “Man, this is last week’s guest list!”
I went back and checked twice. It is today’s list.
The guests are mostly perennials, with nothing new to say, and the lame hosts will ask the same questions, and get the same responses.
I wish they were actually journalists working the Sunday shows....
Based on the guests list, looks like ABC is in full amnesty mode today.
Dick Cheney on Fox News Sunday....it’s about time an adult showed up!
It should be interesting and informative. Cheney doesn’t rise to speak unless he sees the nation needs to hear REALLY how it is....IMO
Another STUNNING, EXCELLANT SUMMARY and so well articulated...Bray, you again have put into the simplest, but most comprehensive review, what our reality is.
The WSJ REALLY needs to hire you!!!
Get a blog, send the WSJ your writings.
PS...Dick Cheney on Fox will just echo what you have written.
Just the SOS, various and sundry group of Commies, Tyrants, NeoCons, and other worthless miscreants who care for nothing but their own power! Get the ROPE!
You nailed it. Cheerleaders for the police state, every damned one of ‘em.
Uh, duh...so much for the Press Turnaround. ha.
And the Sadly so true!
"When you have the FBI telling Congress to go fly a kite and the IRS now has full reign on the citizens we are one step away from a dictatorship in the image of Stalin or Castro."
And the "more free than other people" see no problem with centralizing even more power in DC. The "Common Core" curriculum is being pushed forward to completely indoctrinate small children into loyal subjects.
Prayer seems to be the only answer we have left.
There is more than prayers...but we shall see.
It seems to me the LSM is in run-out-the-clock mode on most of the Obama admin scandals/”situations.” These guest lineups just look too bland and predictable to be of much interest. Even Cheney is old news by now, easily put on MUTE by the secondary media. Other than bored leftie bloggers, will anyone care what he says at this point?
The amnesty bill obviates everything else at this point. The LSM will do what it takes to get it passed. This is their “thing” and they are good at it.
Good news hippie, a legitimate publisher is going to publish my novel The Republic of Texas 2022. It should be out in around 6 mos.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Will Freepr Combat Medals be awarded this morning???
I should get one for listening to ANNNNNDREA MITCHELL...That nasal noise is obiminable..How she ever got on TC with that nasal problem is amazing.
Morning AB, All....
Happy Father’s Day to All you Dads!
Got some thoughts on my Dad, maybe later.
As always, thank you AB for doing this thread.
I’m not real crazy about Cheney’s talking points.
Can I buy a signed copy when its out??
Cheney is refreshing. An adult opinion.
Wallace asked him about Obama’s comments re the NSA program.
Cheney responded, I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the incumbent president and what he says. He has proved himself to be not credible on Bengazi, IRS.....
Good morning everyone, thanks for the thread and ping AB.
Happy Father’s Day A.B. Thanks for the thread.
Of course! They really liked the story and believe it will be very marketable in Texas and the Tea Party. It is Atlas Shrugs meets Star Wars.
They reject 96% outright and their reviewers liked this one right off. It explains what a free market society would look like.
Watching VP Cheney on Fox. He looks better than I’ve seen him in the last 4 years. Apparently his heart transplant has been very successful. God Bless Dick Cheney.
Dick Cheney for President!
I've heard nothing but detailed hypercritial analysis of the "president". Maybe listen first, post later.
He’s always worth the watch...doesn’t mince words...hopefully he’ll be around for a few more years...he has a way of calming the people i think...even those who don’t agree with him understand he generally knows the situation or close to, and they DO listen...including demo-rat’s.
But then ..what’s not to love? ha.
Did I mention scathing?
There is a good reason why 0bama took the 2010 census away from Commerce and brought it into the White House. All our data base are belong to 0bama.
Let's not forget that the FBI was part of the cabal that targeted individuals. They went after the True to Vote founder at the same time as the IRS, ATF, and EPA went after her. This suggests an orchestration among government agencies to go after enemies of the regime.
Cheney now talking about his heart transplant as a miracle, deeply indebted to the donor and family...a new lease on life.
Brit Hume! (and other people)
He looks very healthy and is a strong voice for sanity.
What a Happy! Father’s Day for the Cheney daughters and grandchildren.
The real question is whether the risk and threat worth the loss of our personal liberties and privacy and will this capability ever be turned off or will it remain in place forever?
Couple things about Cheney’s interview....
....first, a personal bombshell. Cheney said he was in charge of wage and price freezes under Nixon.
What a damn dumbbell idea THAT was, take it from someone who suffered greatly because of this thing.
Yeah....I was 19 years old. I was hired as a keypunch operator. I got a promotion to payroll.
Because of the wage freeze, I was able to get a raise for my promotion but was unable to get my “step” increases as is normal when experience is gained.
Yeah it only lasted six months or so but it was dumb as can be, yeah, way back in the 60’s the Repubs were getting fooled and looked stupid by the Democrats. I was new to the political scene at the time and for almost ten years I was vehemently anti-Republican because hey, THE REPUBLICANS FROZE MY WAGES!!!
Just so y’all know being Republican dumb has been going on for a long time.
Cheny also called the Snowden fellow a traitor.
I don’t know the full story of that young man but I am holding off until I hear it all. I found it offputting that first thing Cheney says sort of aligns him with the Obama crowd.
By me, Cheney came off old, stale, and boring.
We have no business in Syria. These hypocrites on Iraq and Trashcanistan now want us to be hawks in Syria for the Brotherhood?
Hold their robes and deal with the winner.
Jane Harmon, re: chemical weapons on the ground in Syria.
Yet no mention by the others of where the Hell they came from. Are they saving this fact for a big “gotcha” or what?
I don’t know what to make of Syria, Bray.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, shouldn’t we STOP dictators spraying chemical weapons on their own people? A well-placed bomb would put an end to that.
This administration has NO plan, no grand plan, for all these Middle East dictators.
I am heartened somewhat by the Turkey protests. THAT’S who we should be helping. Cause those protesting now are those who thought the new president would be a great guy except he’s just more of the same.
It’s the congress critters who should be holding Obama’s feet to the fire but McCain and Lindsay will always push for war anywhere for anything.
Same old, same old, no opposition party.
We have to show the Russians that we are tough? Putin is not that stupid.
Above my Delaware column should anybody be interested.
Did you hear about Putin stealing somebody’s super bowl ring?
Man.....thugs....that whole country filled with thieves and thugs.
Cheney is not on my list of “conservatives” although the liberal media has dubbed him as one over the years.
He is known as an advocate of military action but lets be real the military action we saw in the W Bush era was actually limited military action in the Korea and Vietnam tradition. “Islam is religion of peace”-George W. Bush
The Left cannot tolerate any military action by a Republican so we get the “conservative” and “neocon” labels bandied about.
Neoconservative is just another way of saying Rockefeller-Kissinger Republican (Detente with the Soviets, Opening up Communist China). NEOCONSERVATIVE IS LIBERAL REPUBLICAN.
Looks like all the action will be on abc (anybody but Christians) this week. We need to let the rinos know that we will not settle for amnesty especially with a regime that has proven they have no interest in securing our borders. And, if Boehner trys to lead the house in that directions he will not like the blowback.
Should these commies stop every dictator who uses WMD on thier own people? They said no in Iraq but now they want to in Syria, why?
Syria was stable until Obama stirred the pot.
