“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Romans 8:35,37

What does it take to prove the FBI is a corrupt organization from top to bottom? After two years of colluding with the Hillary campaign and then carrying her Russian collusion campaign we now find they botched another shooter threat and seventeen kids are dead because of it. What is this, the twentieth terrorist they have missed and once again they go on with their campaign to stop President Trump from draining their swamp.

The agency Americans fear the most behind the IRS is the FBI and with the Flynn wiretaps we find none of us have any protections from their spying. They have more power than the German SS and none of the restraints thanks to the FISA judges who will grant a wiretap at the drop of a hat. Nobody is safe in America from unlawful search and seizure so everyone can be found guilty of a crime if they want, just like they are attempting with President Trump’s administration.

Most Americans thought very highly of the FBI and believed they were what stood between Communism and America as well as their policing of organized crime; not anymore. After America found Peter Strzok and Lisa Page who were playing slap and tickle all day long at the bureau while helping plan this coup, we now know what a dumpster fire this agency is. It appears the agency is filled with power hungry communists from top to bottom.

To imagine they would be working anywhere in the public corporate world after sexual misconduct and massive corruption is beyond comprehension. The only explanation is they were doing their job which was to get another Dem elected and once that failed would execute the “insurance policy” the bureau took out. Their being employed points to that being the explanation.

This agency is one political disaster after another from making sure not to upset the Mooselip community by not following up on names beginning with Mohamhead like the Boston bombers to the Bundy standoff, shooting and mistrial to now this shooter in Miami who all but took an ad out in the paper claiming he was going to shoot up his school. What more do you need to know about this secretive organization than it is rotten at the top and apparently it carries throughout the entire agency. It is very likely he was not checked out since his name was Cruz and they worried he was a DACA kid.

How many more botched mass murders does America have to endure under the guise of political censorship and moral relativism? This agency has been taken over by Marxists or incompetence and neither of them are acceptable. It is time to fire between fifty and a hundred percent of the agency and start over with people who love America for who she is. Not some sort of social experiment controlled by the Dirt Worshipers, but an America which loves the Constitution and the freedoms they represent. We need people who believe unlawful search and seizure is a sacred Right in America and especially in a campaign or we are no better than Russia, China or Cuba.

If the Flynn wiretap was issued on the Hillary opposition research dossier or even partially issued then everything they have from it needs to be thrown out. If that destroys the case then the case needs to be thrown out. If that case is thrown out then the Mueller investigation is a fraud and he needs to be disbanded and an investigation on this entire fiasco. Beings that it began from the FBI through Strzok and Page then it is pretty obvious this entire boondoggle was hatched and run through Clinton and Barak which opens an entirely new investigation for fraud and potential treason in an attempt to overthrow a sitting President. Why is Strzok still working and not in front of a Grand Jury?

It is time to either disband the FBI or at least gut the major parts of it. You cannot have a police agency which picks and chooses who they will destroy and who they will protect. This FBI was able to use wide discretion in their ignoring of everything Hillary was accused of while inventing crimes for President Trump. There is no crime of collusion with another government when you are running for President and you should be expected to talk with them if you are running for the most powerful office in America. No the media would have us believe any discussions with Russia are treasonous to the point of destroying any chance of developing a relationship with them now. This fake investigation has set back America-Russian relations a decade over a Party’s whining about a loss.

This is what happens when you have agencies run by secular atheists who believe in moral relativism. They pick and choose which laws they enforce that are determined by what they justify as right and wrong not what is right or wrong. This is how you end up with Strzok cheating on his wife and then cheating on his country. This is how you have superiors justifying the ends are worth breaking laws since they could not stand having the wrong person in charge. They in the end have no rules or morals and only a craven hunger for power by any means.

When you take God and his Ten Commandments out of this gummit it is going to be replaced by evil and man’s rules which are evil. This is especially dangerous when that evil runs throughout the largest police agency in America. It is time to clean house and bring in men of integrity who will not fall when it is time to stand.

The FBI could not have fallen any farther then they have now. If they ever want to get their honor and integrity back they will clean house starting with Strzok and Page and work their way through the levels until they clean their own swamp or close it down and begin again. Freedom and liberty often needs a cleaning, this is one of those times.

Pray America woke

Finally, Liddle' Adam Schiff, the leakin' monster of no control, is now blaming the Obama Administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 Election. He is finally right about something. Obama was President, knew of the threat, and did nothing. Thank you Adam!
@realDonaldTrump 7:22 AM - 18 Feb 2018
I never said Russia did not meddle in the election, I said "it may be Russia, or China or another country or group, or it may be a 400 pound genius sitting in bed and playing with his computer." The Russian "hoax" was that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia - it never did!
@realDonaldTrump 7:33 AM - 18 Feb 2018
Speaking of that Memo, Schiff is still working on it. Report from Wednesday (Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington) was Schiff and the FBI were working on it, but Schiff thought the FBI was still redacting too much. A report Friday (appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations think tank) quoted Schiff saying, "I think we're very close to reaching agreement on it ... I think we resolve that very soon, so we can release this."

Bray’s post is 100% spot-on.

Not even Limbaugh can get me to watch Chris Wall-ass and his panel of liberal liars and GOPe cucks. Someone with an iron stomach will have to fill us in on what Limbaugh has to say.

I wanted to mention a little theory I have about school/mass shootings and gun control.

When these events happen, we see an almost knee-jerk reaction among the Left and media to ban guns of some kind.

Social media pushes uses a LOT of shaming to drive the point home: if you resist calls for banning guns, then you literally killed those kids!

But what the media misses is the almost visceral feeling most people have when these things happen, which is fear/anger—a combination that drives an almost unconscious desire to protect oneself and those they love.

Which means with guns.

So sales of guns actually go up after these mass shootings.

What the Left and media (oh, but I am redundant!) miss is that from their high-security, well-guarded compound’s they don’t live in the same world as the rest of us. For the Jimmy Kimmels and Beyonces out there, we don’t have 24/7/365 ARMED security, you hypocrites!!!

The average person doesn’t want to helplessly hide behind a desk begging not to be shot or helplessly try to bar a door with 20 horrified children behind it with nothing to stop a deranged criminal except a plea.

You can’t change gut-felt truths.

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.

And do check out the commentary of Diogenesis. Smart and on the money,

Tuesday Date-2/13/18

The big story of the day is a real scream.

Seems the Obamas had portraits done of themselves.


Pic below.

 photo fb2.12.28obamaportraits_zpsg50fucwa.jpg

These is no shading, depth, they are both awful. But both of the artists are people of color and that's all that matters.

Michelle's left arm is so long it looks fake. And I don't know what Barack is doing with those awful hands but it looks creepy.

I am to understand that the painter of Barack's portrait loves to paint black women holding the severed head of white women.

Why can't President Barack Obama and Michelle be just normal Americans and now so full of hate and prejudice?

Lord those pictures are awful.

Wednesday Date-2/14/18

It's Valentine's Day, a day of love.

But you'll not find love in America between the two prevailing ideologies.

An envelope was delivered to Donald Trump Jr's wife filled with white powder meant to appear as if anthrax.

Below is what the letter said.

“You’re an awful person and now you get what you deserve,” according to law enforcement sources Tuesday.


Who would do such a thing and why?

Also the infamous and very truthful Susan Rice sent a personal email to herself detailing some kind of meeting on 1.5.17 that asserted that President Obama wanted everything to be by the book.

Why on earth would someone sit down and write themselves an email on their very last day on the job?

Not that Susan Rice ever told the truth in her life. Recall her as the famous Benghazi liar. "It was all because of a cartoon mocking Mohammed," Rice said in a lie.

Now this weird email she writes….they're not going to get away with this is my prediction.

Yesterday there was a hearing on worldwide threats and it was boring. Will catch up and perhaps write a summary.

Thursday Date-2/15/18

Just a couple of things today.

First, as I write there has been reported, and scenes are showing, of a school shooting in Broward County Florida.

Reports as of now are that the guy is named Nicholas Cruz. From one to five dead being reported fight now. This is early into the investigation.


I've been wanting to write about my experience with delivery of those prepared meals that come to your door with all the ingredients.

I use Home Chef.

I get the delivery once a week. Each prepared box delivered has two meals and each meal is two meals for me. That's four meals delivered weekly at about $50 a week.

It IS possible to go to their web site and cancel the automatic delivery, change it to a more suitable meal, or just request one meal delivery.

As I am to understand, and the only reason this little human interest story is here on a political page as I am to understand that there is a plan afoot to have these same types of meals delivered to food stamp recipients.


I know people who get food stamps and sell them. And I suppose people could sell these meal kits. But it's sure not as likely.

IT'S FOOD! What a concept! Have the food come to their door, packaged with the benefit of economies of scale, ingredients all provided and hey….IT'S FOOD!!!

Friday Date-2/16/18

Obviously this Nikolos Cruz guy was a bit troubled. Some might say he was mentally will.

Allow me to explain how this mentally ill thing works. First, by HIPPA laws, the fact that someone is in a mental institution cannot be revealed to anyone.

Right there is an issue.

Second, and since I have entirely too much experience with mental illness, here's how it works.

If a person gets admitted, against their will, to a mental institution, they can be denied the right to own a gun.

However, if a person admits themselves to the mental institution (and I know people who love and adore mental institutions), they cannot lose their right to own a gun.

Now this is here in Delaware; not sure about elsewhere.

So if the good shrink says he or she is not going to allow a mental institution patient to leave on their own, this is considered forced admission and affects gun ownership rights in the future.

BUTBUTBUTBUT…of course you got to know that once so experience on mental patients as myself, knows how to get around that.

Just tell the good shrink that no problem, I willingly agree to stay here.

Boom. It's not a forced admission and it is a technique that can be used each and every time.

Now I suppose the law could change and those who enter a mental institution willingly could STILL be denied a gun permit but really, you think that would work?

There are people who, due to life's events, get depressed, perhaps suicidal. They need to be watched and given time to mentally heal.

And these people should be denied the right to own a gun?

So how else is mental illness going to be determined? Based on the testimony of one lone psychiatrist? Perhaps those suspect of mental illness should be forced to go before a panel of mental illness professionals?

Lookit, crazy people don't kill that many people. They are crazy.

People who fall down under a tragic life events are not crazy but they are not as mentally well as they should be.

Keep talking about taking guns away from the mentally ill and trust that every damn one of us will soon be declared mentally ill.

And for sure the Trump team will all be deemed nuts and thrown in jail.

Oh, and how about that marvelous FBI? Told about this guy, told about the Boston Marathon dolts…..the FBI, once respected and admired, now a KGB wannabe who will remove Presidents they don't like.

Or else deem them nuts.

Saturday Date-2/17/18

So Mittens Romney is running for Senator from Utah?

Heh. He's a loser. This I can tell you.

So Rosenstein announces that 14 Russians were indicted for using Facebook.

The details are hilarious and, frankly, I still think they may be a fake news joke.

The Russians stole identities?

The Russians formed groups of anti-Trump and pro-Trump protesters?

America's Keystone KGBFBI is at it again!

They messed up then they messed up on that shooter in Florida.

If you see something, say something, they scream at us.

Today we find out that people all over the country were saying something to the KGBFBI and they did what?


Folks, let's throw that whole lot out before they sell out America as if obviously their intent to do.

With a number of friends in the FBI (rank & file), I want to believer otherwise. But, alas, the FBI is nothing what we thought or were lead to believe they are/were.

After America found Peter Strzok and Lisa Page who were playing slap and tickle all day long at the bureau...

Slap & tickle? More like hide the weenie....

-- Not even Limbaugh can get me to watch Chris Wall-ass and his panel of liberal liars and GOPe cucks. --

My tactic is to wait half a day and then read the transcripts. It's much more efficient use of my time. Plus we got half a foot of gorgeous new snow overnight, and it isn't going to move itself off the driveway and sidewalks.

I wonder what NBC and Lankford are up to. He's Senate Intelligence Committee, so compromised. Some remarks of his from the past ...

Senator [Lankford] says Russian internet trolls stoked NFL debate
Dustin Volz - Reuters - September 27, 2017

"We watched, even this weekend, the Russians and their troll farms, their internet folks, start hashtagging out #TakeAKnee and also hashtagging out #BoycottNFL," Lankford, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said during a hearing on threats faced by the United States.

Face the Nation - June 11, 2017

DICKERSON: And does that also -- being in the middle of that also include looking into the president and what he may or may not have done with respect to the ongoing investigation?

LANKFORD: Sure. That is just part of the process.

Obviously, if there was any American, including the president, who tried to interfere in the election or to try to do an obstruction of justice, that would be very important to know.

Obviously, there is a criminal investigation that is ongoing with a special counsel. We have a unique policy role in it and an oversight role to make sure nothing is amiss. So, the special counsel and the FBI, we go through all the documents. We want to make sure they have seen everything, they have gone through everything, they're doing their criminal work.

Look at who they couldn't get.

Almost every last one of those people will try to spin Trump into it, not understanding that if the Dems nationalize the mid-terms as a vote on Trump, they will lose. Bigly. Like GOP Supermajority bigly.

Extremely brilliant piece bray!
The shooter was not an unknown to the FBI or local police since they had been to his house some 39 times.I voiced as much yesterday to our REC meeting in the Fla. Keys.Talk about dropping the ball!
Ironically, the area of Parkland some 30 or 40 miles north of Miami is known as a pretty well off neighborhood with many of the homes in the 500k-to million bucks range and more neighborhood. Not an area that you would expect a deranged shooter to pop up. Only severe incompetence on the part of authorities from the FBI on down could allow this to happen.
Florida school killer Nikolas Cruz was visited by police ALMOST 40 times in 8 years
POLICE were called to the home of Florida school killer Nikolas Cruz 39 times since 2010, it emerged yesterday. Police records show that Broward Sheriff’s Office received emergency calls to Cruz’s family home in Parkland.

Pupils in tears yesterday before a vigil; Nikolas CruzAFP/GETTY
Police were called to the home of Florida school killer Nikolas Cruz 39 times since 2010
They were recorded as “mentally ill person”, “child/elderly abuse”, “domestic disturbance” and “missing person” among several others.

The disclosure comes as the FBI admitted yesterday that a person close to Cruz had warned them last month of his desire to kill people and investigators had mishandled the tip-off.

Cruz, 19, killed 17 pupils and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday.

The troubled loner and former pupil, who was obsessed with guns, has admitted the shooting.

He told police he heard “demon” voices in his head giving him instructions for the attack.

He has since appeared in court charged with the murders.

Cruz had moved in with a friend’s family after his adoptive mother, 68-year-old Lynda, died in November from pneumonia.

The FBI said yesterday that a caller on January 5 warned the bureau that Cruz owned guns, had made disturbing social media posts and had the potential to conduct a school shooting.

“Under established protocols, the information should have been assessed as a potential threat to life,” the FBI said in a statement.

Meanwhile, a British-born teenager told yesterday how he was forced to hide in a storage cupboard while the horror of the school shooting unfolded.

Coventry-born Lewis Mizen, 17, initially dived under a desk before barricading himself inside the cupboard after a teacher raised the alarm by shouting: “Code Red, Code Red.”

“We thought it was a drill.

“This is the school I go to.

“I’m watching video footage and it’s my friends with their hands up.

“I have friends who have been killed, I have friends who have been shot.

“How can this be real?”

Bray is spot on...

Judge Jenine’s opening from 2-17-18 should be posted...called for firing all upper level FBI.

PDJT is hitting with a sledgehammer this morning.

Kasich, Jeh ‘the Mussolini chin’ Johnson, and Schiff will be shovelling manure fast this morning...nobody will hear them since Rush will suck all the oxygen from their a good way.

Pray truth is heard...

Oh, just another “random” plane crash...

The last one had one or more Uranium One officers on board...anyone feel like digging into Qanon and finding the flight manifest? There is no such thing as an accident in this day and time.
