The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:30 KJV
This scandal keeps growing more and more like Watergate and as another President falls for the oldest temptation in the book which is absolute power. In the 70s when Nixon was in the middle of his re-election, his minions did what was pretty common in the day which was bugging a phone in the Whitewater Hotel where the McGovern HQ was located. Similarly President Obama decided to help his fellow Democrats and used the entire Intelligence community on the Trump Campaign in an attempt to find or manufacture an October surprise so Hillary could win.
Since the media has no morals or ethics they are not covering what appears to be the emerging crime of the century, but would rather manufacture smoke and mirrors in their attempt to damage President Trump. If they were not so corrupt they would be embarrassed with their recent behavior trying to find a scandal in every haystack. The Russian obsession is not only fake as they pretend talking to an ambassador is a crime even though the same media claimed leaving one of our Ambassadors to die and lying to the American people was fine.
They have been chasing this Russian hoax for nine months since it was manufactured by the FBI and NSA when they were spying on the Trump campaign 24/7 just like Watergate. The only difference is Nixon did not use the FBI or other intelligence agencies; he used his own campaign spies called the Plumbers which was a common occurrence back in the day.
Not only is the press not objective they are activists as they see their power diminishing to more powerful news organizations such as Drudge, Rush and WikiLeaks. This has forced them to be more and more extreme as they are now becoming Howard Sterns on meth. It is truly annoying to watch if you consider their real job is to report and deliver history in an objective manner which is just the opposite of what they are doing now.
The Three Pillars of Propaganda (Academia, Media and the DNC) cannot believe they are no longer the power and even worse could not swing the election even one percent. They now believe they can simply shout louder from their media Idiot Boxes to regain their dwindling power. They have been driven insane realizing an average website is getting more readers than fishwraps and has more trust. They are seeing millions of viewers on the internet when their paid readership and even viewership on TV is polling worse than Pelosi.
How is it they can maintain a constant level of outrage for months on end? They have completely lost the reality Trump could not only win the presidency, be liked by half the country, but he has accomplished so much in so little time. Now they have extended their virtual reality that the Three Pillars can still bring down a Presidency when there is absolutely no chance of it happening. What they do not realize in their seething is none of this matters to the average voter who does not pay any attention until the week of the vote.
What they are not telling you is their messiah was running a spying operation on the Trump campaign from the White House and was using our intelligence bureaus against Trump. In the middle of all of this appears to be the FBI as their name keeps appearing over and over again. The latest rumor reported by a number of news agencies a Russian hacker was bribed and threatened by the FBI to say he hacked Podestas email by Trumps orders. The hacker denied the DNC hacking and sadly you have to believe him over the agency which is why it has to be rebuilt.
The Bureau is also at the heart of the actual leak of Podesta emails which is the Seth Rich case who was the IT worker at the Hillary Campaign HQ in DC. He was rumored to be bringing evidence of voter fraud against Bernie Sanders to FBI agents and was murdered then left on a DC street corner. Nobody knows if the killers were FBI agents, Clinton hitmen or street thugs, but this needs to be investigated if it is true or not. The unsolved murder has so many questions around it such as why was he shot in the back and declared a robbery although nothing was taken.
Nobody now knows what happened during the last election, but by all appearances it makes Watergate look like a pimple on an elephant. This appears to be the entire Federal gummit attempting to frame an opposition candidate with a made up scandal to keep the same regime in power. If that is not a news story then what were Woodward and Bernstein given the Pulitzer Prize for?
This story is either a bunch of random coincidences or is the biggest scandal this country has ever seen and was an attempt to destroy our democratic process. None of this matters to the Establishment Media since they have a coup to attempt and their messiah to protect.
Director Comey had to go. He apparently was part of the corruption and would never expose those involved in this scandal without incriminating himself. There needs to be a complete firing of anyone who was involved with this Russiagate scandal and bring them to justice. If there is going to be any trust in it or the NSA they both need to be investigated and cleaned from top to bottom as nobody has trust in them and major parts of this country have justifiable fear of them as they did in the old Soviet Union.
There also needs to be a side investigation as to who was and is coordinating this scandal to bring down a sitting President. What is the connection between these agencies and the Clinton campaign as well as who in the White House was ordering these investigations on a Presidential Campaign. This is the breaking of perhaps the most sacred trust in a free Republic. A person running for the Presidency never has to worry about the FBI tapping his phones and passing his secrets to the other candidate, heads need to roll.
It is obvious at this point the Trump Campaign was not coordinating with the Russians in any way. If they were while being listened into for the entire time would have been exposed months ago. This is more smoke and mirrors by the Three Pillars and the shadow gummit within the DNC. That shadow gummit is most likely the Clinton campaign, Obamas organization and the media. They are still running this phony Russia story to hide the real scandal which is a nuclear bomb about to level Moscow on the Potomac.
Yes, there are yuge parallels between Watergate and this story. It is about someone who was corrupt and when given absolute power was corrupted absolutely. He did not want his sins to be uncovered by Donald Trump so he did everything he could to derail Trump from accessing the Presidency and turning those powers over to him.
All of the kings horses, and all of the kings men, could not stop Donald Trump from putting it together against him. This is what we are seeing and what the firing of Director Comey was all about. He was the first step of unraveling this Watergate and revealing it to the American people so it can never happen again.
Pray America woke
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Wow-straight all out anti-Trumpfest today.
Thanks for thread A.B. And Happy Mother’s day to whom ever it applies! Guests are all enemies except (maybe) Tillerson and Haley. Rex is playing games with global warming, signed off on a protocol and says this isn’t the big one. Reject, reject, reject any notion USA will go along with the idea of man made or man cause climate change or global warming.
You can't feel embarrassment if you are entirely self-absorbed and disconnected from reality.
Chris Wall-ass drove another nail into Fox News' brand new Liberal coffin this morning on "Fox 'n Friends." Wall-ass refused to accept that the Media hysteria over "The Russians" and the Comey firing was in fact hysteria.
Wall-ass is a Liberal hack and a contributing factor in the ratings collapse of Fox News.
Nothing but the left (wrong) side from the Communist News Network!
Thanks bud. Much appreciated. I’m looking forward to what Rex Tillerson has to say,most of the rest is pretty predictable.
Other than Tillerson, and possibly Gates, you're absolutely correct!
Sunday Morning TV News Shows, a total waste of time today!!! The media no longer serves the Republic!!! It, like the Democrat Party, is dying of self-inflicted wounds!!! The vast majority of the American people have totally tuned out both the Democrat Party and the Mainstream Media!!! End of story!!!
This guy has been playing for the deep state all along. You have to look close for the evidence but it's there.You find him covering for Hillary over and over as the need arises.On the 30 k deleted e-mails, his much ballyhooed speech where he listed all the reasons she should be in jail and then announced he would not recommend that Lynch prosecute to so many other issues. Te Mfg. of the stalking point of the DNC that Trump was in cahoots with Pootie,it goes on and on.
He has always shilled for the deep staters while throwing us the occasional bone just to try and confuse the issue as the hard left is so adept at doing.
Good riddance to bad rubbage.
Morning AB, All.
As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably. And a joyous Happy Birthday to all the Moms this Mother’s Day.
Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom and thank yon readers for comments that fill in our blanks.
Below a daily diary of the week just passed that I wrote for my Facebook page, just sharing for perhaps a glimpse of subjects to be covered this Sunday on the political talk shows.
Just scroll on by if too long but please stay and join us in the discussions.
Tuesday-date- 5/9/17 Daily Update
Bill Maher the classless comedian and yesterday’s Intelligence committee hearings.
Help me out here. I don’t find that funny at all.
Guess you got to be a mean, classless son of a bitch to laugh.
Why yes I did watch the three hours of hearings on the Senate Intelligence committee. Sally Yates and Clapper were being grilled.
Sally Yates was an Obama appointee and temporary replacement for the Attorney General.
James Clapper is the Director of all the Intelligence Agencies and a known liar.
They both made me want to puke.
First, one more complaint about the political posturing and money being spent on this Russian investigation, which seems to never end.
Sally Yates also refused to take any action on Trump’s first immigration executive order, BEFORE a judge even ruled on, because like one brave Republican Senator told her, somebody must have died and made her the Supreme court.
THAT issue is moot now what with the judge’s fake decision on the first EO and now a second one under review.
But it shows what a loser this Yates woman is, fired from her job and a friend, heh, of Hillary Clinton.
My own Senator, Chris Coons says Russians “intentionally” influenced our elections.
Hey, Coons, you bald nothing-burger, the Russians DID NOT INFLUENCE OUR ELECTIONS!!!
We elected a president and would have done the same had their not been one Russian on the planet.
And finally, I think I know what Michael Flynn did that was so bad he got fired after only a month.
I think Flynn was speaking to Russian operative and said something, maybe out of the side of his mouth, about eliminating those silly Obama sanctions after the election.
This infuriated the Obama team, the ones most likely responsible for all this unconstitutional surveillance and illegal leaking to the Washington Post.
Yeah I said it.
All of this came because the words were given to the Trump admin and eventually to the Washington Post. Clapper and Yates both denied leaking this news.
I got a bridge to sell to anyone who believes this.
I know I really didn’t like James Comey from last week when he testified before congress about .well some kind of Russian thing, Russians were selling single cigarettes on a NY street or something.
I’d been watchng Comey, like most of America, as he gave a self-sniveling press conference telling us why he won’t prosecute Hillary. Then right before the election he comes out and tells us that Hillary needs some more investigating.
Then last week he tells us that Anthony Weiner had “thousands” of emails forwarded to him by his wife Abedin. It is asserted that there were perhaps a dozen such emails on Weiner’s computer.
Comey was fired because, well he probably got bribed .there’s money involved in all this somewhere, remember you read it here first.
But that silly thing about not prosecuting Hillary, who only had a private server in her bathroom to keep her email correspondence from US ..SHE DIDN’T WANT WE THE PEOPLE TO SEE THE DEALS SHE WAS MAKING WITH THUGS AND THIEVES ALL OVER THE WORLD .Comey up and decides he couldn’t ascertain any “intent” on Hillary’s part to charge her for a crime.
At the top of the hill of dumb-ness .THIS was the dumbest of all.
I’m so glad he’s gone and let us not forget, THE MAN NEVER MET A CAMERA HE DIDN’T LOVE.!
Now we got to hear the Democrats sob all night although for months they’ve been blaming him for losing the election and every other damn thing.
Delware death penalty and Comey Firing Fallout.
If yon reader wants to put finger on the national attitude toward the death penalty, come to Delaware.
Not that there’s justice anywhere in a Delaware court where they force viable businesses to be killed and sold, where crippled grandmothers get restraining orders for trying to save a suffering dog, where fathers must pay thousands in legal fees while malicious neglectful mothers get free lawyers and coats at Christmas.
Ask me about it all some time.
THIS year the death penalty is back.
Because truthfully folk, no matter the childish snow flakes all boo-hooing over the results of an election they did not like, most people WANT the death penalty under the right circumstances.
And folks, people are very seldom put to death in this country but we all know there are times when certain people benefit society more dead than alive.
Some of them are in my family.
Anyway, we’ll see how long this lasts because it changes hourly.
Lots of fallout from the Comey firing and this political junkee is loving it.
I am sure that the famous tarmac meeting was for an exchange of cash for Loretta Lynn, who then gave Comey some to go on stage and exonerate Hillary Clinton.
Bearing in mind that Hillary only put that server in her bathroom closet to keep YOU AND I from knowing how she and Obama were selling our country to Iran, Russia and the highest bidders.
Comey is an egomaniac and no way should that guy ever been in charge of the FBI.
But he did favors for administrations then in charge, including the Dubya Bush admin when Comey managed to appoint the corrupt Fitzgerald to investigate CIA file clerk Valerie Plame and march Scooter Libby, an innocent man, off to jail.
Not that I’m proud of it, but I know all about this bizarre story and hey, George Dubya needed some help and Comey gave him some.
For the right amount of money Comey would do mostly anything for any idealogy or political party.
I’m so glad he’s gone.
Will the Hillary email investigation be re-opened?
I truly believe that on the day of that so-called “tarmac” meeting that former President Bill Clinton gave Loretta Lynch something.
Because in this day of technology, satellites and WI-FI, I do not believe anyone should have to meet in person unless there is something to be exchanged.
I believe ole Bill gave Loretta a pile of gold bricks or several suitcases full of money.
“We got Comey ready to hold a press conference and he’s going to announce he’s not turning over Hillary’s case to me for prosecution,” Loretta told Bill.
“How can he do that? Bill asked, though glad that the Obama administration seemed to have a good plan.
“Bear in mind that we kept that server private so that only the email we wanted shown to the public would be for FOIA requests. How did we know stupid Podesta would give someone his password?”
“We got lots of hearings on Russia coming up. Comey’s going to initiate an investigation into the Trump campaign. We got him willing to take Cheryl Mills as a witness. We even have, get this, a plan to have Comey come out shortly before the election with some rumblings about re-opening the case. It’s all a show, won’t be easy, but if many of those emails go public we’re all in trouble.”
“Are sure Comey can pull all this off?”
Lynch laughed. “Don’t you remember the Joe Wilson/Valerie Plame thing?”
Bill laughed. It was during Dubya’s tenure but they sure controlled that joke of an investigation.
“Comey orchestrated that whole thing, the Fitzgerald special counsel that no one could touch, the perp walk for the Bush appointee. For the right price Comey is for sale. And right here,” Loretta beat on a suitcase for emphasis, “you got plenty of the right price.”
YEAH. I believe that James Comey has been for sale for quite a few years. I got all kind of documentation on the absurd Plame CIA file clerk affair.
Now Comey had to get Hillary off the hook and still practice his smile and good grace in the mirror.
Now back to the question .Hillary and that prior administration need to be punished. The illegally surveiled American citizens, that “unmasked” them and invaded their privacies for political purposes.
I think it’s quite possible Hillary might go to jail.
I would love it.
Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms. Have a good one.
So the week of the Comey firing has come to an end and there have been listed 4,583 reasons why he was fired.
I don’t care what reason you pull out of the woodpile, Comey was taking money and running the show on Capital Hill.
Comey goes back all the way to Valerie Plame, a file clerk at the CIA, Joe Wilson, a nobody travelling the world representing America, Scooter Libby, a spokesperson for Dubya Bush who got found guilty by a prosecutor hired by Comey to .eh, find Libby guilty, this Fitzgerald person who was in charge and never mind that the real revealer of Valerie Plames position as CIA receptionist to the men’s room was one of Colin Powell’s buddies.
The truth never mattered and the guilty never paid in the world of James Comey.
Who, by the way, never met a camera he didn’t love.
I think trump implied by his tweet yesterday advising Comey about leaking was to .eh .well I leak ole James was the source of almost everything up there on capital hill.
I’m so glad he’s gone.
On a personal note
Went to mass yesterday and I dunno, maybe you had to be there. But me and Diane Feinstein sat down in a pew and we do both sing, quite loudly. Diane sings way better than me, being a song leader at church and once starring in live musicals in Wilmington.
But my voice is a deep thing and it does compliment hers, as I hear it.
So we sang “Mary We Crown Thee With Blossoms Today”.
Man you gotta be Catholic cause you will know that song, a beautiful thing, always one of my favorites. We had a parishioner crown a statue of the Virgin Mary, which sat in the middle of the altar nave.
Diane and I sang that song and I dunno, after two sentences I began singing in harmony. Because me and Diane Feinstein in harmony, well it sounded really nice, if I do say so myself. But Diane’s high voice in nowhere near my range and my voice decided to sing lower parts with complimentary notes.
Or so I say.
The people around us turned and watched us and many flatteries on our exit.
Just a nice experience.
I saw that this morning and you know, right along I been denying this forum’s assertion that Chris Wallace was some kind of liberal or had liberal leanings.
But after that nonsense this morning I got totally disgusted. Or all people, Wallace should know this Russian nonsense is done, stick a fork in it.
And he constantly criticizes Trump...”Trump shouldn’t do this, Trump shouldn’t do that.”
I wanted to slap him.
Happened to see that. Not that we didn’t already know, but Wallace confirmed that he is part of the hysterical media Russian feeding frenzy.
The White House, which has offered varying reasons for Comeys dismissal, will not be sending a member from its communications department to make the rounds on this weeks shows.
Even Fox News is having trouble getting WH surrogate for Sunday shows: They’re not answering the phone, Chris Wallace says of press shop, a reporter from Bloomberg News wrote on Twitter.
Found out that Comey had something to do with the Sandy Berger thing. Remember Berger got caught with stuffed papers down his pants?
I hear Comey, behind the scenes and for the right amount of money, got Berger off.
Also, Valeria Plame, file clerk for the CIA and that big nonsense, where we had an out of control investigator, Fitzgerald, appointed by Comey.....send an innocent man to jail.
Like I say,for the right fee Comey got things taken care of.
THAT’s why he got fired.
Cleaning the swamp.
