The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22 NIV
Now the latest talking point by the DNC is that only Republicans impeach presidents. They conveniently forget their attempt of impeaching Bush over the supposed outing of a paper pusher in the basement of the CIA. Of course the Marxist establishment attempted to make her into a female version of 007 when in reality she was nothing more than a glorified secretary and this minor indiscretion was made into the crime of the century. Right up there with Bush lied about the WMD which they had endless hearings on only to find no deception by his administration whatsoever. Does anyone really think these were not supposed to lead to his impeachment?
So we have an outraged Marxist media and their Party making it sound as if the President has done nothing wrong when a few years earlier they sent a man to jail in an attempt to impeach Bush. They were outraged that a Democrat activist working in a gummit agency was revealed, but have no issue at all that a gummit agency was targeting American citizens. Apparently, if the CIA was targeting citizens whose only crime was dissent, that is fine as is the destruction of incriminating evidence as long as it is against Tea Partiers or as the President calls them, Tea Baggers. Our watchdog media would have been right at home in Nazi Germany.
We got a brief glimpse inside the mind of IRS head Lois Lerner when a non destroyed email had her calling Tea Partiers a__ho_s and terrorists with one of her fellow IRS heads. Wonder what other names and incrimination is on those conveniently lost records? This is the same lady, and I use the term loosely; who met with the President 150 times during the first four years of his administration. America is supposed to believe this community organizer who knows that money is the lifeblood of his reelection was not making sure she stalled their tax exemption? This is the same guy who had his political opponents divorce records unsealed to win his Senate race, so this was a no brainer to stop the momentum of the Tea Party.
So the same group who sent Scooter Libby to jail for three years and destroyed him financially are incensed that anyone would even consider impeaching this crook. If Nixon was impeached for threatening to use the IRS on his political enemies and supposedly destroyed 30 seconds of recording tape, we are now supposed to ignore the actual use of the IRS on your political enemies and the destruction of hundreds of hours of email conversations.
The conventional wisdom, the Three Pillars (academia, media and the DNC) say that impeachment will help their messiah. They believe the people will rally around the presidency and be repulsed by his impeachment trial. That may be true if you have the Clinton machine behind them and they can laugh it off as only about sex, but this is about attacking American citizens with the strength and power of the gummit. A large number of Americans still understand the concept of fair and the only thing less popular than congress and gridlock is the IRS. When it is shown there was a coordinated effort to make his opponents lives miserable with an all powerful entity his favorability levels are going to flat line.
Are the Three Pillars really saying that if and when Republicans capture the White House it is fair game to go after Marxist groups with gummit agencies? After all if they are going to make the case that all of this corruption is fine when they are in charge it has to be fine when they are not.
Will it be ok to close down these temples of indoctrination? Can we go after the Unions and assorted groups with spy agencies and shut them down? Can we spy on the media without any concern for their privacy rights? These questions have to be brought into the light and allow the voting public to cast their votes on whether America decency no longer exists or do we now have a country that can bully its citizens? Say what you want about GW Bush he respected the American people and they respected him. Those days are over since we have a president who dislikes America and despises his political enemies. We are at a real crossroads in this country and especially in his Party do these means really justify the ends?
We have enough questions about law breaking to begin impeachment proceedings which is nothing more than an investigation of those infractions. It is nothing more than a check against an executive branch that is using the power and strength against its own people which we have seen. The only question now is who was directing this illegal use of the IRS and cover up. We have to know whether or not he is so vindictive he would order his cabinet to break the law and use their offices to harass and harm American taxpayers. If he did then he needs to pay a price as do all of his leaders who did the actual acts.
The precedent has been set with Scooter Libby who the Dems used to get Bush impeached and was sent to jail for 30 months before he was pardoned. It was also set time and time again with the Dem committees to find evidence of lying over and over from the Truther investigations to WMD and any other thing they could invent to destroy Bushs administration which they finally with the help of the Three Pillars accomplished after years of vicious attacks and false charges. The Republican Party does not have a willing media that will investigate any of these actual crimes due to loyalty to their Marxist agenda. This in addition to a corrupt Attorney General there is no check for a corrupt Executive Branch and that is an investigation and impeachment. The founders brilliantly put this in the Constitution to prohibit the President from deciding he is a king and could dictate from the Executive Branch where all the power is concentrated.
We are now in a Constitutional crisis as the Marxists have taken control of this country through the front door. They are on the verge of turning our democracy into a dictatorship to make slaves out of the masses through the use of gummit agencies like the IRS, NSA, EPA, FBI and whatever agency they require to control the people. The people have one check and balance and that is the congress where this can be stopped, although it will take courage and dedication to the freedom our founding fathers envisioned. It will take faith in the American people to want freedom more than Obamaphones. It wont be about Party, elections or career enhancement it will be about starting to bring down the Three Pillars and relighting Lady Libertys torch. It is time to go back to 1776 and throw out a corrupt king.
Pray America wakes up
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
First time I’ve seen VJ doing a Sunday show.
Morning AB, All.
Thank you AB for doing this thread every week.
Been a terrible week just passed for me but again, I won’t bore you. I do know I need to find my happiness and that’s where y’all come in.
One of my greatest sources of happiness is this particular Sunday morning thread. And I do enjoy watching the Sunday political talk shows as well.
With my awful week I been looking forward to discussing border children and Israel all week so let’s discuss!
Yeah could get interesting.I wonder if old Bob will ask her if she has Secret Service protection and why?
Here you go fish its all over the web and a huge story as well.Also chicoms crossing the border big time.
heres a clip from the link above:
Many of the thousands of illegal immigrant children and teens crossing the United States border are carrying deadly contagious diseases that could easily create a major health crisis in this country, doctors say.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Dr. Jane Orient, an internal medicine specialist and the Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), said that by admitting these huge groups of children who come from countries where medical screenings are minimal and hygiene is poor, the United States is at risk for epidemics of serious diseases and viruses that the nation has not seen in years.
Tuberculosis (TB) is the single most dangerous disease because it is highly contagious and can be easily picked up at the mall, at a school, or on the bus, Orient told Breitbart News. Cases coming from south of the U.S. border can be very resistant to medications. They dont respond to traditional antibiotics, and the few drugs they may respond to are often toxic, with lots of side effects.
Legal immigrants have always been required to undergo health screenings, Orient continued, but these kids coming have no medical screenings and no vaccine records. Theyre likely coming here with a number of infectious diseases that will spread like wildfire.
Norovirus is also an extremely contagious virus with symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea, she explained. All we need is one outbreak of that virus and we would have an overwhelming public health crisis.
America is in peril in part BECAUSE the MSM, to the degree
it exists, has become the bleating eunuch of the State,
led by the undocumented cryptoMoslem who --- at this very moment --
continues to import tuberculosis, Ebola and Swine Flu, narco- and Islamic
terrorists, which/who are being released en bloc,
even as he continues to fund Hamas terrorists ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6),
while, ignoring the US Constitution, Congress and American people.
The gravamen which SHOULD be covered is that the Tyrant
sent his State Dept thugs to attempt to force
(ahem, "negotiate") an American-Kerry-Obama-planned genocide
to help Hamas/alQaeda/Moslem Brotherhood terrorists (including the
undocumented pRes_ _ent's family ( 1, 2)),
in their odious planned murderous attack on Israel.
Hey thanks RG....always nice to have friends online.
Between these border children, 117 of which came to Delaware and will be attending school with my granddaughter, and this questionable decision to bring Ebola here.
I understand why it was done but do we remember the rollout of Obamacare?
This administration is not the most efficient is what I’m saying here.
And I know full well why these children were brought here, more on this later.
Okay, let me get this out there....I do NOT believe Obama cares which way America goes, his job is to be a handsome personable spokesnoid for a bunch of folks behind him, and to get as much money as he can.
I assert that Obama got lots of bucks for two things this past week-1)-betraying Israel for Tukey and Quttar. Lots of money exchanged from Quttar I suspect, with France as the in-between and Switzerland as the banker. 2)-the Border children. I have a first hand insight as to what this is all about....give me time.
For Delaware has a chicken industry that employs mostly Ecuadorians and Hondurians, meet a bunch of them every damn day. So money changed hands for this as all these Hondurians etc are illegal but NO MORE!
Their children were shipped in, yes they were. Delaware is opening a special school to teach them English and to keep folks like me from getting mad as our greandchildren must attend school in a tent.
Money was paid and all these Delaware illegals, those that contributed to the “Obama Stash” will not be legal as they are in charge of children.
Follow the money.
Two interesting things happened this week locally. As many know we have been running petitions to stop Light Rail which 3 years ago was named the rail model for the nation by the Obama regime. We miraculously finished a petition in my town in 5 weeks collecting around 1300 signatures to get it placed on a special election ballot which will be run in Sept.
We found out this week that the other side is not even going to challenge us and have no letters in the voter’s guide. They have given up and Light Rail is dead in Portland.
Also, yesterday went to an Oregon GOP meeting about GOTV and my partner Gordon and I were asked to write a manual for the state on how to GOTV and chase ballots. Not sure if they actually want to win this election, but it is a good first step.
will not be legal ...
I meant to type “will NOW be legal...”.
It’s part of the plan. Next year they will be attending school next to my granddaughter.
Our bigger worry is the 100k Africans that zero has allowed to come in. Many will have to be carrying the Ebola virus. I think the two doctors going to Atlanta are just a smoke screen. Just like the kids coming across the border are another smoke screen.
This regime is so slick you need to stay up all night just to figure out what they are up to next.
Marco Rubio all of a sudden real quiet about immigration reform. Wallace mentions his former aggressive support of immigration reform and how his poll numbers are down to SIX PERCENT!
The big problem with immigration, folks, is that the gubmint did NOT close the borders like they were supposed to do when Reagan granted five million illegals amnesty.
But the Blue Blood Elite Ruling class does not want to admit this and hey, we understand such as fences and locks out here in la-la lan d.
In summary, what we have are a group of individuals who think they are elite and can do it THEIR way.
The public, ALL OF US, do NOT like it.
So far as I’m concerned I won’t even consider Rubio for anything requiring my vote.
He tried to fool us but me? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Great catch zero sends lurch over to bibi to tell him go back to the borders of 67 and let hamas have everything they want,unreal!
Meanwhile Ebola could get real very real
Rubio: The problem (childrens’ invasion) is caused by ambiguities in the 2008 law and Obama’s executive order.
[hmmmm. Unintended consequences because of ‘ambiguities’ in the law. And these IDIOTS want to be trusted with Comprehensive Immigration Reform overhauling? This would turn out like Obamacare — another boondoggle legislation.]
Rubio: we would have to gain peoples’ confidence ...
[Yeah, right! You people in Washington are the ones who keep breaking things — immigration, social security, healthcare, etc. — and then you want US to trust you to fix the problems YOU created? No Sale, Senator!]
Obama is doing a preemptive strike. He is trying to inoculate himself against impeachment by getting the Reps to say they will not impeach him. When Obama legalizes the status of 6 million illegal aliens preventing deportation and providing them with work permits, SSNs, and the ability to travel in and out of this country, then the GOP will have to make the decision whether to impeach him or not.
Regardless of the political fallout, the GOP must impeach him to protect the Constitution. It won’t matter that the Senate will not convict him. The GOP House must do its constitutional duty.
As good as it gets. You gotta wonder just how close we are in other areas of the country to libs backing down just by being challenged. Probably a bigger deal than we know.Congrats again.
Your schools need to turn them over to ice after they have had medical exams. Also your local govt. needs to sue the regime for costs assoc. with dealing with these illegals. Send dc a bill. If enough cites states do it they will get the message.Fight back with dc or get rolled.
It seems to me that one of the benefits of having ILLEGAL aliens in the country, at least for the Chamber of Commerce/Chicken Processor types would be that they can pay them much lower wages than normal AND they work like the dickens because they don’t want to make waves and get turned in to Immigraciones.
Not to be racist, but this difference is most profound between Mexican workers and Puerto Ricans (PR). Mexicans are far, far better and harder workers the PR’s. Why? Well, PRs are legal and can easily get benefits anywhere in the USA. Mexicans, while they can do this (and you’d be surprised that so many do and can get away with it) always have to worry about being turned in and deported.
I really don’t thing the Chamber/Chicken Processor types want the illegals made legal, but rather just over here to further exploit. By giving them amnesty you would give them power and the Chamber types lose money. I can’t see them in favor of this.
They do, however, want more low wage workers. They absolutely do not want them to become Americans, as Americans have the gall to expect higher wages or won’t work and go on welfare.
Wallace seems to have stacked the panel with pro-illegals commentators.
The Heritage guy (Michael Needham) is getting hit by all 3 of the others.
Wallace repeats again that Romney lost the Hispanic vote by 44%.
And once again the Republicans are left to play defense ... errrr, uhhhh, ohhhh.
He had the dough had the push/name recog. from all the right people he had just enough of all the key essentials to run and wound up getting the GOP nod.
We should start now to see to it that it does not happen again or we will get Jeb for sure.
First thing for us to recognize is that we are part of the coveted .1 of 1% who are politically astute. The rest of the country is not even close. They don't even know who the VP is or much less care!
Once we realize that it should change how we think.
The borders should have been secured, but that is what happens when you have amnesty first rather than enforcement. And even securing the borders only prevents about 60% of the illegal aliens entering this country. The other 40% came here legally and then overstayed their visas. We need internal enforcement as well as shutting off the job magnet.
The big problem with immigration, folks, is that the gubmint did NOT close the borders like they were supposed to do when Reagan granted five million illegals amnesty.
The government estimated one million would apply, but the true number turned out to be 2.7 million. There was a surge of illegal immigration after the law was signed. Even though you had to be in the country for at least 5 years to apply, the process was rife with fraud with phony document mills being set up within blocks of the processing centers. Ed Meese calls the "one-time" amnesty the biggest mistake of Reagan's presidency.
Agree with you on Rubio. He jumped the shark.
You’re right, exactly, AB.
Not sure about Puerto Ricans but we got Mexicans here in Delaware that do all the landscaping. They wear long sleeves on the hottest of days and never sweat. I hired a company, American owned, but the workers were all illegals, I’m sure. But I was nice to them, continually offering them water, which they eventally accepted, dear Lord they worked all day without any water!
The Hondurans and Ecuadorans work for the chicken industry and no, most Americans won’t be running around catching chickens (there really is a job called “chicken catcher”) for minimum wage. As a joke I asked around and most folks said sure, they’d do it....but for no less than $25 an hour.
Same as for working the processing plants where they are up to elbows in blood and guts.
So to keep the Hondurans and Ecuadorans from being deported, here in Delaware but in other parts of the country, this grand scheme was hatched...FOR THE MONEY!!!! The scheme brings in these kids. Here in Delaware they brought them in in dead of night and already they are at their homes.
so the chicken factory workers, as was the plan, CANNOT BE DEPORTED!
Why? They have children to care for. Some of the children are theirs and some are relatives.
It’s part of a plan hatched a couple of years ago and once the Obama admin got the money, boom....they are brought in.
THAT’s the story behind the story and I don’t believe for one single minute not a single solitary Republican knew nothing about it.
Even now the pubs shuffle and waffle and talk around the subject. They too are glad Obama did this, their campaign coffers will be filled.
This is a political Elite problem and America might be slow on the uptake but we’re learning.
Let that Ebola virus get loose and the country will implode.
Kim Strossel was horrible. The best thing the GOP could do was not write a bill and the next best was to write one that stressed enforcement which they did. She obviously hates Cruz and is part of the GOPe who wants amnesty.
"Somebody needs to say, 'Why has daddy not been able to get a job?' " Sessions said in an interview with the Tampa Bay Times where he streamed figures, assertions and unwavering conviction. After nearly 40 minutes standing outside the Senate chamber, he started to walk away then turned back for more, comparing the more than 1,000-page bill to the health care law.
OVER one THOUSAND pages!? Here would be yet another example of "You have to pass it to know what's in it."
Who in their right mind expects a group of generally rich, lazy, almost senile old farts in the Senate to read and comprehend a 1,000 page bill?
Answer: No one. Well, maybe Jeff. That's why he's against it.
But on principle, no one should be submitting bills that total over a hundred pages, let alone 1,000. There's just no way to gauge the unintended consequences of such legislation.
We are SO SCREWED.
So good to see you!
I been having a real bad couple of weeks so it’s always nice to see family.
And Rubio....glad you agree with my distrust. He tried. The pub base was intrigued with Rubio but he took advantage.
This is a political class war, this immigration thing. The Blue Blood Ruling Class gets money from the Chambers of Commerce but loses votes from the hoi polloi like us.
On to the Obscurity Highway known as CNN.
And Fox not only stacked the panel, they had Rubio on as the voice of the GOP on immigration. Steve King is on now, but Wallace is trying to control and muzzle King. He is cutting him off.
Both parties have abandoned the American worker.
.............. uhhhh... did you just say President Hillary? Couldn't hear you well.
Lack of political strategy got us here. Impeach zero and your prolong the agony.
Why can't we just go after him on the 20 scandals we already have!! Force him to explain himself on every scandal there is.Keep bringing people up in front of Congress to talk with Gowdy!
When we get the senate we can force him to veto bill after bill after bill. Sooner or later he will be forced to accept some of the blame for his intransigence. Do it enough and we win in 2016 and they lose.
Play stupid politics and things go on as they have.
Remember these commie-clowns have nothing at all to run on!! Yet they keep kicking our ass!! You better stop to think why and if you don't come up with superior political strategy think again.
Unless zero turns white there is no way to legally stop this clown until 2016. We know it and they know it so the smartest guy will come out on to win 2016 I prefer it was us.
If CNN will take him. Hire him in a gesture of sympathy.
This surge of "children" was orchestrated by the WH with the cooperation of the governments of Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico. The WH lawyers are the ones who exploited the law to create the crisis. It is no coincidence that the Dems with the help of the MSM made this the cause of the crisis and since the amendment was signed by Bush, it is another Bush's fault narrative. In sum, the 2008 Wilberforce amendment was used by the WH as the legal loophole to facilitate this crisis.
Juan: if you look at the make up of the Tea Party (older, whites), I have no idea whether the opposition to Obama is racial.
[Juan may not ‘know’, but he sure spreads the allegation that all opposition to Obama is racial.]
I like to think that we helped out ol dnc dave move along by showing who he really is.
You gotta be busy now during storm season NN.!
Juan was at his usual level of disgust. Everyone who disagrees with Obama is a racist and the Tea Party is basically the KKK. What a maroon.
Following the Limbaugh lead, putting it back on the table...RAT heads exploding.
That Michael kid was fantastic, calling the O regime lawless and then lays out all of the laws they are breaking. That was after the old guy lectures him about using the word lawless he uses it 5 more times. Well done and hammers Juan for calling him a racist.
