The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40
You can tell everything you need to know about a person or gummit by how it treats their enemies. America is really two Americas, one is full of bullies and thugs and the other believes in freedom and liberty described by the founders of this country. The Fathers believed in a small gummit which the individual was given as much power as possible without creating anarchy. They understood if you gave each person an opportunity to maximize their own lives they could move the country as a whole which has led to the greatest freedom experiment in history.
On Veterans Day our group Forests for Oregon sponsored an event for our wonderful WWII Vets and two Holocaust survivors to hear their incredible stories. Our first speaker was Jack, an airman who flew 33 missions in a B-17 over Germany. He told how he grew up in PA and always dreamed of flying so the Army Air Corps was his natural choice. He spoke of the hollow feeling of watching your buddies going down next to you and seeing no chutes.
He also spoke of how his brother after the war joined the Army and was stationed in Berlin. His brother sent him a picture of bombed out Berlin with a note which said, See what you did. He spoke sadly how he lived his entire life with the guilt of what children, women and animals were under that rubble.
The Jews were no longer able to tell their stories due to their age so the pastor did a slide show telling it for them as they watched on. Ira is 89 yrs old and when he was a child escaped Czechoslovakia, to Hungry after the Nazis invaded. He was in the Budapest Ghetto wearing the Jewish star. After his father was taken to the death camps he and his mother and sister were shipped to Auschwitz. When he arrived they were split up, he went to the work camp and his sister and mother went to the gas chambers.
His first story was how he had not reacted to an order fast enough so a guard threw a pitchfork through his foot sending him to the clinic where a Jewish doctor took care of him. After a couple days the doctor released some of the prisoners and kept the others. Ira was released even though his foot was still injured and had no idea why he was back to work. He later found the ones who were left in the clinic were sent to the gas chambers.
Later he told of how they had two types of shirts, one cotton and the other wool. He saved his bread rations and traded them for a wool shirt and traded a prisoner for his cotton one. A week or so later the guards divided the group up and had the cotton shirts go one way while the wool shirts went the other. He found out the cotton shirts went to the gas chambers. He survived four camps and was eventually liberated from Dachau prison weighing 75 lbs as a 17 yr old boy.
His wife Ava was also a Czech whose family also escaped to the Budapest Ghetto. One day they rounded up the Jews after her father was taken and took her mother. Her mother was on a train heading for the death camps and knew she had to find a way off the train to save her two daughters. When it slowed and the doors opened she dashed off the train heading for the woods when a guard cried, Halt!
She spoke fluent German and got on her knees and begging to let her go or her daughters would surely die without her. The guard told her if he let her go he would be shot. He said he had a wife and three children at home and said in a minute he was going to turn around and go check the next car and when he did she should do what she needs to do. When he turned she ran out into the woods.
It took her two days to sneak back to Budapest and when she arrived her daughters were gone. When she asked where they were she was told the children had been marched down to the river. The next slide was of a memorial of brass shoes on a dock at the river. Eight hundred children were lined up and when they got to the front they were told to take off their shoes and shot in the back of the head then thrown into the river and her daughters were in the line.
She ran to the guard taking off her wedding ring and begged for their lives. He took the ring and gave her the two girls and they survived the rest of the war in the Ghetto. God was looking out for this woman and her daughter was Ava who was at the Veterans Day. She gave us a good view of what the National Socialist Workers Party looked like.
The last Vet was Art who was on a small sub chaser down in the Pacific. One of their primary missions was pulling downed pilots out of the water. He spoke how they were looking for the crew of a downed B-29 and had found all but one. They searched and searched and finally gave up.
As he was relieving crew members his first one was the guy on the stern where the engines and exhaust was. When he relieved the sailor the guy said he imagined he heard a voice but with all the noise it had to be his imagination so dont say anything. Art agreed and suddenly got sea sick. As he was giving breaks he got sicker and sicker until he was near passing out. Finally, he decided he had to tell the Captain what he heard.
The captain asked how long ago this was and he said twenty minutes not really knowing how much time had gone by. He turned the ship around and ran twenty minutes then turned off the engines. As soon as they shut down the engines they heard the man shouting in the water. They all celebrated the miracle they just witnessed. The man who they pulled out of the water told him he was praying they would come back and his prayers were answered through Art getting sea sick.
At the end of the event Ava cornered Jack and said, Thank you, thank you, thank you, if you had not did what you did, I would not be here.
Nazi Germany is what happens when a country worships man and the earth rather than God. They were a pagan religion who followed a Super Aryan cult attempting to evolve into a superior race of Germans who would become gods and live forever. The lower races had to be exterminated so not to dilute the superior Aryan species they were attempting to evolve into. Their Bibles eliminated the Jews and replaced them with Germans and Jesus became Hitler in many of the Aryan churches, the cross was replaced with a spear. The all powerful gummit was their path to the new world or the Third Reich where they would all become gods and everyone else was their slaves.
This is what evil looks like and what man without God is capable of. The Jews were picked for two reasons, they are Gods Chosen people and they had much of the wealth to pay for the war machine. There are people in this country playing with this evil as we see the violence against a group they do not agree with and need to silence. There is a group who thinks they are superior and have a need to oppress the inferiors who do not think the right way.
There is another path. The only thing that stops this from happening is Jesus. He says to treat your enemy with love since anyone can be a friend to the ones they care about, but your enemy is much harder. He says to give your enemy your coat.
It is time for America to really choose which path they are going to take. One leads to the river and gas chambers and the other to the man in the ocean watching his life sailing away. America is sea sick right now. Are we going to keep sailing or are we going to turn and shut down the engines to hear for that man floating in the water praying for a miracle?
Pray America Wakes
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Thanks for thread A.B. Tide rolls on but maybe without Tua? They are lucky selectors will not allow the Buckeyes to play them.
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.
Seems things are popping with the Mueller investigation. Turns out Manafort and Corsi are refusing to speak the lies as Mueller wants.
Manafort worked for a short period of time on the Trump campaign while Corsi, goodness knows what he did. Perhaps he read War and Peace and Mueller shall punish?
So okay, she’s young, was evidently educated in public schools, and doesn’t know all she should about American History and Civics.
But of late I am seeing many political cartoons that are paradies.
I suspect many of them are not true, like the one showing Ocasio demanding the Dems should take all four houses of the legislature.
How is this mockery, deserved .SOME of it, any better than how the liberals treat President Trump?
Okay, so Trump’s not quite so young and unlearned.
But to spread lies about things she didn’t say seems very unfair.
-Seems like the wonderful and loyal Republican Jeff Flake now uses his minscule power to deny any help with the border problems unless congress votes to keep the lovely, sweet and honest Mueller on the case.
Mueller is busy chasing Russians and enabling impeachment of a lawfully elected President.
It’s been two years and forty million dollars.
PEOPLE, FOR FORTY MILLION WE COULD BUILD A HUGE COMPLEX TO HOUSE THE HOMELESS!!!
Jeff Flake will protect Mueller.
Jeff Flake, loser, soon to be never heard from again.
53 Republicans and 47 Democrats in the Senate.
Let Pelosi keep trying to get the House to impeach a lawfully elected President.
She’s another one who needs to go.
It’s been former, now deceased President H.W. Bush (41), all day, all weekend and likely next week.
I liked President Bush 41 except that time I stopped liking him, like many Americans
But he is well known for one incident that every time I think about it I smile.
It’s the broccoli incident.
Seems President Bush 41 does not like broccoli and he dared to so state in public.
“I am President of the United States,” he said, publicly, one day, “and I don’t have to like broccoli.”
I agree with the guy. Shucks, even if he WERE NOT President of the U.S. he has a right not to like broccoli. What a nutty uproar that incident caused.
My biggest grievance with President Bush 41 is when he told us to read his lips.
“NO NEW TAXES” his lips told us.
Only they DID raise taxes.
President Bush 41 allowed the Dems to fool him, silly man. All the pundits busy telling us how smart and talented Bush 41 was but he fell for the stupidest trick in the world.
A Dem agreed to only raise taxes if every dollar they raised was replaced by two dollars saved from spending.
I got a bridge to sell, CHEAP, to anyone, except for President Bush 41, who would believe this.
Rest in Peace President Bush 41. You did serve your country well, you were a good Dad.
Your biggest error was believing the Democrats.
.Matthew Fish has returned from Budapest where he was part of the best UN representative.
My son-in-law has a cancer operation and it is said they have removed all the cancer. He is home now and doing fine.
Today my brother is coming to pick up my dog. I am a widow, 68 years old, and I had to out of my mind to agree to take TWO dogs, each weighing over 75 pounds. Blanca, an all-white American bull dog, once belonging to my crazy daughter and that I took to save it, is going to live in North Carolina.
Lindsay Graham will be her new Senator.
Yes I love Blanca, but she will be much happier without an old lady trying desperately to control her white-volcano self.
Lots of tributes to GHWB today, as it should be for a deceased POTUS. Glaring exception is shifty Adam Schiff appearing on ABC. Scratching my head about that one.
My only concern is this:
Will the driveby’s use GHW Bush death as a way to attack President Trump?
Oh, you know they will!
They’ll talk about how gracious and balanced the Bush Republicans were, how they accepted their blows from their democrat rivals without fighting back too hard, and look how George and Barbara just about adopted Bill Clinton and the Obamas...
Meanwhile, they’ll lament the ugly, ungracious Orange Man and his hatefulness, his audacity to fight back at every level, and his never-to-be forgiven defeat over Hillary.
Should the Bulldogs get a chance at a rematch ? I say yes. What a game it was, and would be again.
How? Georgia is now at 11-2. There are 3 other teams with ZERO losses. Their fans, staffs and players would rightfully pitch a fit.
Two things about Ole Kirby (Not) Smart. One, if he wanted to be in the championships, he never should have lost to Oregon State. Two, that 4th down play was stuuuupppiiid. He told ESPN Alabama was on to it because the snap was too slow. Well why the Hell didn’t he call a time out???? He had 3 time outs. Sure you don’t want to waste ‘em, but come on, he GAVE the game away with that. Coaches decisions need to be smart AND quick. Kirby only has Smart.
Too bad we ended the Gulf War several days too early. An opportunity was squandered, which set up the subsequent invasion of Iraq. Powell was a disaster.
Kill Seth Rich to set an example, no problem. Bankrupt several innocents to get to Trump no problem. Give Russia over 20% of our uranium in exchange for 140 million?No problem. Take advantage of the poorest people on earth after an earth quake right on.
Those are the real Nazis of today.
Imagine if we simply took Saddam out.
No need for a No-Fly Zone.
No need to station troops permanently in Saudi Arabia.
No Khobar Towers. I had been there months earlier. Only luck didn’t place me in it when the truck exploded.
No “Infidels in the Holy Land” outrage from Bin Laden (although he would probably grab on to something else).
No invasion of Afghanistan.
No Powell “If you break it, you own it” nation building disasters.
Whoa post of the week so far!!Hot chicks never get old!!
Georgia lost to LSU 36-16. They didnt play Oregon State.
Yeah, Bray, great essay.
So few never think about where we’re heading.
It’s all unicorns, rainbows and skittles in a multi-cultural world of Kumbaya and gay friends, just like TV, where the unplanned actions of free sex and love can easily be mitigated by free abortions and Planned Parenthood, who plan to kill babies and sell the parts.
Never the unseen consequences. Man is evil. Put together a nice system and they’ll turn it in THEIR favor, not yours.
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.
Good catch NN.
Shiff for brains has a family history that leads directly to the Illuminati:
The Schiff family shared a house with the Rothschild family in Frankfurt in the later half of the 18th century. The Rothschild sons (the “5 arrows”) went on to capture control of the banking markets in the major capitols of Europe, culminating in Nathan Rothschild’s seizure of control of the Bank of England in 1815. Later, Jacob Schiff moved to the US and married into the Loeb family (and took control of Kuhn Loeb & Co., still one of the owning banks of the Federal Reserve ... when you see ‘Kuhn, Loeb & Co’., read: Schiff). He arranged loans (of Rothschild money, essentially) to J.D. Rockefeller beginning in the 1860’s (I think) through the National City Bank of Cleveland. With that virtually limitless supply of capital, Rockefeller was able to create an oil monopoly in the US, making the Rockefeller family very powerful, and, since the Rothschilds had made similar moves to win the Morgans (banking) Harrimans (railroad), and other industrialists, bankers and congressmen into their court, this set the stage for the coup of 1913 - the establishment of the Federal Reserve Bank System.
Could be why he seems so disturbed. Lots of in-breeding with those clowns who control much of the wealth of the earth.
For me there was so much going on back then that I had no idea who was behind what. It’s much clearer today.
