“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

You and your sons and your servants are to farm the land for him and bring in the crops, so that your master’s grandson may be provided for. And Mephibosheth, grandson of your master, will always eat at my table.” 2 Samuel 9:10

What is it like to go through life with no new ideas, no solutions, no hope and no God? What is it like to go through life as a Democrat waking every day in the Country you hate? Your only god is an all-powerful gummit in control of every aspect of your life. To reach this goal you will justify any act no matter how evil or vile as long as it promotes your social justice.

This is where you end up when you believe in atheism and evolution to nothingness. There are no moral parameters or guideposts to live your life by and are simply in a never ending attempt to be the perfect human being. The problem is you are following a false teaching which defines good and bad by man’s laws. The same people who declare the Bible flawed by being written by man and not God live their lives by an ever changing man set of Commandments.

Every day liberals try to prove themselves more aware than the next liberal by making some more and more radical rule until you are petrified to say or do anything for fear of being offensive to anyone aliver or dead. Each and every one of these rules are in conflict with both the church and morals of America in an attempt to destroy both.

The basis of every one of our new demonstrations is an end to Rights Americans have enjoyed for the past 250 years. We have watched these Anarchists and other DNC thug groups take away the Right to Free Speech and assembly. You will no longer hear any speakers on campus they declare as Hate Speech which translates into any speech which is not pure Marxist dogma. If anyone dares to speak heresy to the liberal cult they will be declared as a hater and virtually lynched by the Three Pillars of Marxism.

Liberalism is a religion which is becoming clearer and clearer by the day. They worship the eart judging their purity by how little they damage the environment by their definitions. The main problem there is they declare every capitalist asset an environmental destroyer and their church of liberalism will declare entire industries as evil needing purging from existence. This is what we saw with the Obama administration as the messiah declared business after business unholy and need for extermination.

Businesses such as coal, oil, auto, banking, agriculture, guns and the middle class are all enemies of the DNC so they all need to be destroyed. Theirs is a shared poverty existence which looks exactly like the Soviet Union where everyone is miserable and godless under the boot of Stalin. President Trump stopped their march to their communist desert.

President Trump continues to upset their march to oblivion as he improves the business climate of all of these industries moving America to a better economy. As the economy improves there will be fewer and fewer cultists available who believe in their Marxist view of the world. The only ones left are the young social justice followers who want to be holy people by their works.

Their problem is there are too few anarchists and BLM thugs they don’t vote so they are making their numbers look greater than they are. This is why they are turning out in the streets and doing the usual Occupy the streets routine they have been orchestrating for the last fifty years. They have even gone back to their favorite protest which is everyone is a racist but them and throw around the Nazi pot/kettle/black.

The Three Pillars believe they can do to President Trump what they did to Bush, which is to repeat the same lie for years until America believes it. With him, they claimed he lied about the WTC which he never did and with Trump they are going to try to make the racist, Nazi claim stick. If it does they have a chance of getting their power back, if it doesn’t they will no longer be a real movement ever again. This is the highest of the highest, high stakes poker and America stands in the balance.

Now is the time to go in for the kill. He needs to begin fireside chats on Sunday nights to let America know exactly what he is planning and why. Right now America needs a professor of economics and who better than the man who understands more about capitalism then Adam Smith. Most young people under the age of thirty have not heard anything positive about capitalism and how it lifts all boats through the invisible hand. Once America understands it in simple explanations he will become even more powerful and trusted than any President ever.

He has to explain the connection between low energy costs and a better economy. He then has to discuss why restrictive regulations lead to a worse economy like we suffered through the past decade. He has to explain there is no proof of Global Warming other than a method to cause higher energy expenses. Finally he has to discuss how huge deficits leads to an economic collapse and how lowering our debt becomes the best gift we can give to the next generation. He does this with a few rallies thrown in and he will become a mighty giant in a city of midgets.

The racist charge is not sticking with the people it needs to stick since everyone already knows who Donald Trump is. He has been in their living rooms for thirty years so making something he isn’t looks contrived. If he is a racist than we are all racists, which we are if you have eyes, making the charge hollow. He was the least racist person in NYC and everyone knows he is not so the charge is just more bullying from the Three Pillars making them begin to crumble.

As he educates America he will begin reaching more of the youts and blacks. He already has a majority, but if he were to begin these strategic fireside chats they would begin to grow in larger and larger majorities. Young people are starving for the truth and know they have been and are being lied to by Academia and the media. If they ever get a chance to hear the truth, they are starving for it and would begin filling the rallies and voter booths.

The DNC is absolutely desperate now. The Russia hoax is flying back in their collectivist faces and Korea was a weeklong dud, so now they are back to their old race card. Once that fizzles they will be out of tricks and their minions will be burning the cities, not a good campaign platform when you are underwater to begin.

Everyone who thinks President Trump is losing and DNCNN is winning only have to remember back to the election. He was winning ugly in the election and this is ugly governing since this is the only way you can beat the swamp. You have to get your feet muddy You can either lose graciously or win ugly and Trump is winning against the entire DC powerbase. From the XL pipeline to defanging Dodd/Frank he has had more ugly victories in the first 9 months than Obozo did in his entire 8 years which is a beautiful thing for our beautiful American people.

Pray America woke

Thanks for thread A.B. I see Kasich is back again (for what!?). He shouidl; stay home as a lynch mob gathered yesterday to remove the statue of Christopher Columbus at City Hall. Seems they “thought” he was a racist or something, even tho he never stepped foot in America, and just drove ships.

NBC lineup is outrageous. SPLC is a far left despicable hate group. Young is there to inject the race card. Bray will defend the violent hate group Antifa, the Brownshirts of the Dem Party.

Morning AB, All. As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably and keeping the peace with gentle thread policing. Thank you Bray for weekly written wisdom, Thank all yon contributors for excellent commentary to flesh it all out.

Below are the words from my daily political diary. It is quite long so scroll on by if not interested. But do stay around and add your commentary and point of view to the thread.

Some Delaware Politics

They really needed to put a big picture of this 81 year old woman who got caught using about seven bucks worth of tickets to ride the bumper cars?

This is from

I think President Trump ought to denounce this woman for crimes that prevent America from being great again.

Quote below:

An 81-year-old Rockville, Maryland, woman was charged Wednesday with attempting to use counterfeit tickets to access Funland ride in Rehoboth Beach, authorities announced Friday. 

According to Rehoboth Beach Police, a longtime employee of Funland operating the bumper cars contacted officers around 7:30 p.m. on August 9, 2017, regarding tickets he’d been given by Marilyn Hammerman, which he’d identified as fraudulent due to his experience with previous incidents. 

Hammerman was found to be in possession of approximately 20 fraudulent tickets and was charged with misdemeanor theft of services under $1,500 “following an investigation into the allegations,” police said. 
She was released on $100 unsecured bond. 

Political Gossip Odds and Ends

How about that Anthony Scaramucci guesting yesterday on the Sunday political talk shows and now he will be joining Stephen Colbert?

Guy made quite a name for himself for a job he held ten days then lost due to lack of class.

As for Kim Jung-Un launching missiles to Guam, first I did not know that Guam was an American territory and I did not know it was so close to Korea.

This is also the country that goofball congress guy Hank Johnson said was going to flip over.


Wednesday Date-8/16/17

Kim Un surrenders.
What’s going on with Bannon?
Questions about Charlotte Virginia and who began it all.

I am to understand that the fat guy with the bad haircut pulled back on his plan to blow up Guam.

What a dolt that guy is.

And the Chinese use him to do their dirty work and hey, that’s pretty smart.


I am so confused about this Steve Bannon thing . First he was the best thing since popcorn.

Then dark references to the man’s secret “Deep State” side.

Now he’s on the good side.

This is how it goes with this administration. The media and political players put out so much conflicting information that the public is meant to be confused and draw a conclusion that this President is not up to the job.

So Charlottesville Virginia is all a big scam? For it was Shakespeare who told us all the world is a stage and so they put up the drama.

Here’s how it went:

“We got the Charlottesville town council to vote to remove the statue. Did you get that guy from Wall Street Matters to apply for a protest permit in the name of “Right Wing Opiions”?

Terry Mcauliffe sat back and waited for a response from Charlottesville’s Mayor Signer.

“Got it all, thanks for that direct line to Val Jarrett. She gets things done with the snap of the fingers.”

Governor Mcauliffe smiled. “Make sure you get those cops to stay away from that site. We don’t need cops getting hurt. I’m going to use this event to launch my presidential run.”

Mayor Signer sat back, laced his fingers in comfort, and smiled. He figured he’d have a shot at the VP slot maybe.

“Took care of the cops and worked out reasons why they will suddenly leave once the protest begins. Also got the town council to void the protest permit and if all goes per plan, the statue protestors will cross paths with the “KKK” and “Neo-Nazis” we been training for almost a year now. Created a web site and everything.”

Governor McAuliffe smiled again. “We’ll put Trump between a rock and a hard place like he’s never been on before. Got all the Sunday talk show hosts ready to beat up reps of the administration. And in the end, doubts will be cast upon every voter who supports Trump that they too are probably Nazis and white supremacists.”

Mayor Signer smiled.

Governor McAuliffe uncrossed his legs in preparation to leave.

“Remember Joe, there’s no rule you got to take over a country with an army. Political correctness and control of the media will do the job just fine and with far less blood shed.”

Thank me very much.

-Natalee Holloway body found?-sick of Charlottesville.

It’s been quite a few years since Natalee Holloway took a trip to Aruba and met Joran Vandersloot, a piece of human garbage.

Too bad Greta Susteren moved on because she was in that story for over a year.

Then the lovely Joran went to Peru and met another female he murdered because, Vandersloot is getting to be a real star at killing women.

Anyway it is alleged that human remains were found buried in a lawn near to where Natalee spent her last hours.

I don’t believe it.

I remember when some shyster promised Natalee’s parents that he had a device that could find bodies under water. It was a scam.

Further, why on earth did Joran and his father go out on the boat that night? That was when they threw Natalee’s body overboard, not going to the obvious effort of burying her body on land.

And further, it was revealed that Vandersloot’s father had to break dead Natalee’s legs in order to fit her into some kind of container for her body.

Why bother with that? Just throw her body in the ground.

Joran’s father, Peter, is dead now and burning in hell I suspect. For his son is a pox on humanity.

Finally I am so sick of Charlottesville stories, none of them true.

Move on but find out why Terry Mcauliffe orchestrated that disaster.

Barcelona terror attack. Locally tearing down statues.

Yesterday certainly was a confusing day with that car attack in Barcelona, killing 13 people and injuring hundreds of others.

This is how Europe is losing, people. They have no borders, no immigration rules, they let these heathens come into their country, rape the women and murder the shoppers.

Please President Trump, put up the wall and stop the dangerous entry of these thugs and thieves immigrants into our country.

Below is a press release by a local Sussex county critter, Ruth Briggs King, a well-liked and very active politico from Sussex county Delaware.

Her response to a request by the local NAACP to tear down some statue that offends them.

 CONTACT: State Rep. Ruth Briggs King, 302-577-8515
Rep. Briggs King is responding to published demands - issued only late yesterday - by the Lower Sussex County NAACP for the state to revoke the Georgetown Historical Society’s $11,500 in Grant-in-Aid funding if it does not remove a Confederate monument on display at the museum it operates – the Nutter D. Marvel Museum.
Rep. Briggs King stated: “The grant funding that was appropriated this past year for the Georgetown Historical Society was only a very small portion of a much larger funding measure for nonprofits throughout the entire state. The $37.2 million Grant-in-Aid bill was considered and approved by the 62 members of the General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Carney.
We have a certain process for allocating funding for Delaware’s nonprofit organizations and to begin now with efforts to revoke funding for a particular organization outside of that process is a slippery slope I am sure no one wants to venture upon. I continue to fully support a more thorough review of each nonprofit group that receives Grant-in-Aid funding, to ensure fairness and equity to the public and the organizations. But, to single out the Georgetown Historical Society – or any other group for that matter – in this particular way when nothing illegal has occurred and to immediately withdraw the funding they use for many important and worthy projects is not something I support at all.
I remain firm in my position that Grant-in-Aid funding for the Georgetown Historical Society should remain intact and I look forward to a review of all Grant-in-Aid recipients in the upcoming year.”
Saturday Date-8/19/17

Steve Bannon out.

Not that this is any secret. It’s been bandied about that the Brietbart King was leaving the White House.

I got a theory. I think that the White House is creating their own press pool. It begins with Anthony Scaramucci then on to Steve Bannon. I can’t come up with new members but maybe Reince Priebus, Spicer?

Soon the afternoon White House press corps will be filled with this new press contingent and oh dear Lord please get rid of the WORST of them all, Jake Tapper. Move on to the next worst, Chuck Todd. Keep going and NEVER, not EVER, give George Steponallofus a tidbit or a leak.

It’s a crazy theory but when you got an “army” coming after you, you got to get rid of the army.

We shall see.

It’s getting to the point where what we do here will always be much more significant that what we see on driveby TV. Today no exception. There is so much going on from Imran Awan to Charlottesville to Spain.Let the games begin.

Young is there to inject the race card.

Actually Young has been arguing against removing confederate statues, one of only a few southerners to do so publicly.

Chuck Todd had a dress rehearsal for the SPLC / Antifa setup. The show this morning aims to pimp the book and legitimize the notion that speech can be violence, so violent response is morally justified.

Should The Far-Right Be Confronted With Force? | MSNBC (Aug 16 MTP Daily)
Should The Far-Right Be Confronted With Force? - NBC News

Richard Cohen, President of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and author Mark Bray discuss the Antifa movement and how they propose tackling the far right.

Newsbusters produced a critique. For those who don't watch the 7:33 video, the exchange presented below is accurate, and typical for what passes as "critical review of events and policy" by the press.

Really Chuck? MSNBC's Todd Aids in Promotion of Antifa Violence

The MSNBC host welcomed his guest with open arms, asking: "Mark Bray, you are writing this book Antifa, the Anti-Fascist Handbook. Explain this movement and its roots."

"So anti-fascism goes back to the beginning of the 20th century when leftists of all stripes fought back against Mussolini and Hitler," Dartmouth "lecturer" Mark Bray claimed. "The main perspective of Antifa is essentially that rather than simply waiting for the threat to materialize, you stop it from the beginning." He even admitted that what they did in Charlottesville was try to deny a platform.

After confirming that Bray followed the radical beliefs of Antifa, Todd's next question wasn't about the legality or morality of using violence to shut down free speech. It was concerning Antifa making the neo-Nazi's look good. "What do you say to those that are concerned that: `Hey, you're handing -- you're allowing this -- these white supremacists to claim victim hood here,'" Todd probed. "What do you say to that criticism since the President is trying to essentially create a false equivalency here?"

Democracy Now and other outlets are even more supportive.

See America Is Struggling to Sort Out Where `Violence' Begins and Ends, by Amanda Hess in the NYT; Unmasking the leftist Antifa movement: Activists seek peace through violence, by Sara Ganim and Chris Welch of CNN; and Virginia Heffernan chats with Mark Bray, a podcast on Slate.
