I don’t have a Sunday Bray to post this morning as Bray has been VERY busy I’m sure signing books!
My “The Republic of Texas 2022” arrived by post yesterday signed by Gary Bray himself! Can’t wait to start reading!
Bray, feel free to post your essay directly or send to me and I will; either works or take the week off!
Does anyone watch these shows anymore? I used to, but no more.
What’s up with Menendez? Wasn’t he accused of child molestation in the Dominican Republic last year or so?
I know the congressional democrats have been outraged (geesh, when are they not?) about the sex tourism trade in places like Thailand and the Philippines and have passed legislation being particularly hard on any American doing this with underage prostitutes... But one of their very own (Menendez) gets accused of this in the Dominican Republic (the other “half” of Haiti—Hispaniola) and they get all hush-hush in the driveby media. Another arrow in the quiver of media bias they love to deny...
Yet another lack luster airing of drivel from the msm.
I doubt anyone will go here as well:
The above is a red hot thread. One of many now in process digesting what bundy actually said had to say and his defenders.
by the way one of Bundy’s staunchist defender is his black unpaid volunteer security guy Jason Bullock.
If Bullocks interview on CNN ever hits the left will be “so” embarrassed as was the CNN guy trying to interview him.
Among things bullock had to say were; he’d take a bullet for Clive, he looks up to him like his grandfather,he’s not a racist. It’s a great interview,its here:
Pence was interviewed by Larry Kudlow yesterday on WABC. thinking is he may be a potential for 2016 probably more VP than potus but who knows.
Kinda hard to rip them apart and mock them if you don’t watch ain-it?
I thought the there was a rule, if not a law that John McCain and/or Chuck Schumer had to appear on a least one of these shows every week. I read that list at least twice, then went back and read it again to make sure. Sure nuff, neither are there.
Gotta know what your enemy is up to....
Whats up with Menendez? Wasnt he accused of child molestation in the Dominican Republic last year or so?
I know the congressional democrats have been outraged (geesh, when are they not?) about the sex tourism trade in places like Thailand and the Philippines and have passed legislation being particularly hard on any American doing this with underage prostitutes... But one of their very own (Menendez) gets accused of this in the Dominican Republic (the other half of HaitiHispaniola) and they get all hush-hush in the driveby media. Another arrow in the quiver of media bias they love to deny...
Good point. I forgot about that RULE. But if you ask me, being McCain-less or Chuck-U-less is a blessing, so we can let this violation slide!
That guy on press the meat, former PM, it’s properly pronounced:
And Oh Boy! on This’ Weak:
The fake Indian, affirmative action carpetbagger from OK via MA. I’m sure she’ll have some dazzling gems of wisdom for us.
Thanks for thread A.B. Another climate scientist has confirmed that governments are forcing scientists to fudge or outright falsify their scientific reports. (Imagine that!)
Not so much any more. Same old names, same old talkingpoints.
These programs used to set the topics for the coming week on the follow up news, barring any major news events. Now, they are just rehashes of talkingpoints. They don’t even really discuss the issues. Hosts are too busy trying to get ‘gotchas’ from the ‘enemies’ and furthering the leftist/lib/Dem agendas.
This morning, I will watch Pence. His name has been thrown around as a potential for 2016. I have seen him a few times from previous presidential election years. Warren might be interesting, but I wonder whether Georgie and TW has the intention of trying to derail her potential 2016 desires until Hillary decides.
I am concerning about how David Gregory’s psych eval is going. [/s] Rumors of his demise and being removed from MTP have been going on for several years now. But he is still host. Sometimes those kinds of rumors are spread to generate interest/viewership.
Hyped media of the week was apparently Clive Bundy’s statement. Since his comments were not quite clear enough, the NYT did some editing. How nice and considerate of them. [/s] Ironically or intentionally, their resulting edit made Bundy sound racist and calling for a return to slavery.
Lie-awatha on CBS with Incontinent Bob will deny running for president for the 1,000 time but watch for the carefully crafted weasel words, such as “I am not running for president.” (which means now). Later she can and once again lie bald-faced to people about her intentions and statements.
Great stuff here about Bundy,well written.
“Cliven Bundys campaign plan and tactics may be flawed. But the hill he has chosen to die on is the terrain for which we have to fight. If we dont establish what the relationship of the federal government is to the land and our property rights, with clear principles, and prescribed definitions and limits, we cannot sustain any other feature of American liberty.”
Also on McCain,he actually got something right this week!
He commented on Putin that Russia is really “just one big gas station.” Take that away from them and they are broke. He was finally right about something.
Great catch Bob!
Their and Graham’s imminence is so ingrained in the furniture at the studios that the essence of their presence is automatically assumed.
TEA* Party or GOPe?
If you are a RINO, don't. You RINO's have had your day in 1992 (GHW Bush), 1996 (Dole), 2008 (McCain) and 2012 (Romney). While GW Bush won in 2000, it was barely against the kook Algore, and beating Kerry shouldn't even had been close. Still, Bush won. But he's still much more RINO than TEA. And he helped ruin the brand, what with amnesty support and No Child Left Behind dealings with Tedward Kennedy. I won't even get into Afghanistan or Iraq because I supported kicking their asses but we never should have tried nation-building with them. Kick ass, kill bad guys, get out. Rinse, lather, repeat.
ANYWAYS, RINOs have had the contender role these past several elections and come up short. It's time to try a different type of challenger. TEA party, or TEA philosophy, at least.
TEA = Taxed Enough Already. It is not Tea, but rather TEA. Seriously that is what the TEA Party actually means.
It’s good to see him scorned, but a lot of these overseas protests are because he’s not Leftist ENOUGH, or Muslim ENOUGH.
Hannity and Beck were too busy running for cover, as they feared being accused of being racist.
The ole race card still works, and the Libs/Leftists/Dems are quite adept at using it — whether race is an issue or not.
True sick world we live in.
My plate has been absolutely filled and am very surprised by the response I am getting with my book. People are really enjoying the story and the message.
Hope you enjoy it AB. How did you like the cover?
Not to mention "TEApublicans"
I could be wrong, but I seriously doubt if there is such a thing as a "TEA-RAT".
The poor black racist on Fox is reduced to nothing but name calling and baiting. She is afraid she will be judged on her results rather than AA.
She never explained why it is not racist to discriminate against Whitey.
Pence is more conservative socially than most RINO’s. I’d say he is also more TEA than GOP-e. He was one of the few who did not vote for the stimulus bill back in 2008. I believe he also did not vote for the senior care prescription program.
I’d say he’ll likely run in 2016. I wish Rand Paul and Ted Cruz would consider running for governor before they ever run for president. They need the executive experience, IMO.
God save us! I would have rejected lethal injection, too. —on the basis that is was TOO LIENIENT!
I’ve always thought convicted killers should be killed in the same way they killed their victims.
Awesome. I usually buy my books from Amazon for my Kindle, meaning electronic versions only. But I could NOT pass up having one signed by you, buddy!
Yeah, not only was she ugly on the inside, she had to play against the attractive and gracious white-privilege babe.
Race relations will be the topic de jour with the SCOTUS decision and the release of the secretly recorded Donald Sterling telephone call. Obama has already chimed in seeing it as an opportunity to don the victim cloak again eliciting white guilt prior to the midterms. You can bet the Dems will pile on over the next week keeping the issue alive as long as possible.
Killers and rapists should be sentenced and turned over to the friends and relatives of the victims.
Elizabeth Warren - not running for president in 2016. Focussing on her book, A Fighting Chance, about protecting the little people from financial institutions. Her “I’m really concerned about the little people” look throughout the interview cracked me up.
Now the round table is reviewing Picketty’s book. Paul Krugman likes it - that’s all I need to know.
Ah, I see, the two books deal with “Income Inequality” which is the talking point of the day and the issue which will be used to steal more of our wealth/property.
Thanks. Not many talk about Pence here. Palin, Cruz, Paul, Walker, etc., get a lot of attention and articles posted, but rarely Pence.
lol...just as I read your comment about race relations, a panelist on the discussion about “income inequality” on ABC just said white families have 6 x the wealth as a black or Hispanic family coming out of this recession.
I remember when an American politician talking about Income Inequality was rightfully considered a communist and ignored by both political parties.
Sadly how far we have fallen, when correcting Income Inequality seems like a noble concept to so many LIVs today.
I would ask them, if Income Inequality was reversible by government edict, why has it ALWAYS failed EVERY time it was tried (Soviet Union, Cuba, Red China during Mao, Venezuela, etc., etc.). They have no answer, except to insist that doubling down on the communism will FINALLY get ‘er done.
My book explains the real way to improve income inequality and where their solutions will end up. Income inequality is a good thing and is what makes people move forward. Something Marxists don’t like.
I'm in Alabama. What a laugh. Poor whites are not doing so well, Mr. and Ms. Big City Leftist Bean Sprout Eating Journ-0-lists.
And now, doubling of food and gas prices hurts them, no matter the color of their skin! As far as color goes, as Hillary! would say, "What difference does it make?"
Give them JOBS, not welfare. Geesh. So simple, you'd think even a democrat could do it, but I guess they're way below cavemen.
Good points. When I hear “Income Inequality” today...I hear how someone scheming to take more of my money in the name of “fairness”.
Mike Pence is hitting it out of the park. Common sense answers to an insane world.

This year 13.5 percent of the student body 5,881 students are considered international, an increase of roughly five percent from last year.
Pence interview was rather ho-hum. He used a lot of political jargon without saying anything substantive. He did invoke Reagan regarding foreign policy.
Wallace asks him about his presidential aspirations. Then, as soon as Wallace ends the segment, he asks ‘are we looking a Clinton-Bush match-up?’
