The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
I wrote this January of 2018 and it was right on target:
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
James 3:17-18 KJV
Every Repub and Liberaltarian should be outraged that the FBI and intelligence agencies were working with the DNC and the Clinton campaign to spy on the Trump campaign. This has been the greatest fear of every freedom loving American since J Edgar Hoover designed these agencies that it would spy on American citizens.
To have them corrupted to the point they would try to influence a free and fair presidential election is the greatest fear any true American could ever imagine.
There are few things which rise to the level of actual treason, but this is one of them. Whoever was the head of this operation should be put in front of a firing squad and made an example of. To compare this to Watergate is a farce since Nixon never used actual agencies and is really questionable anything illegal was actually done while this one has serious laws being broken with the intent of influencing a presidential campaign.
When this one was first exposed some of us were saying this was suspecting it was bigger than any of the fake news distorters were letting on. Now we are finding out there was a cabal formed similar to what you normally see in Nicaragua or Thailand inside the gummit to make sure a certain candidate would win. This cabal paid for the fake dossier saying Donald Trump as a private citizen visited Russia and paid hookers to pee on a bed because Obama had slept in it a couple years earlier. Never mind that President Trump is a germ-o-phobe or that he was not there at the time, the Russians were going to blackmail him for this and needed to be investigated further.
This dossier was then delivered to the FBI by John McCain to give it an heir of credibility even though the FBI and the Hillary campaign paid millions to have it produced. McCain was may have been part of the cabal or a dupe is questionable, although it is very likely not exactly innocent since he has a burning hatred for Trump who dared question his heroism. At this point you have broken laws with a campaign being helped by the FBI and government agencies and people need to be jailed, but then they take it to a whole different level which is beyond treason to a true democracy.
The dossier was then leaked to the press most likely through FBI director Comey. It was also being used by the cabal to issue a FISA warrant to be able to spy on the Trump campaign for being blackmailed by the Russians. Everyone except the judge knew this dossier was false and they lied to the judge into believing it was real and she issued warrants to tap some or all of the Trump campaign phones and then passed that information on to the White House and the Clinton campaign. It is very likely every phone and computer in the Trump campaign was tapped and all of that information was passed to Clinton to help her win the election.
For all those Social Justice Warriors, how fair is it to have the entire FBI, NSA and the rest of the Federal gummit trying to influence an election for Hillary Clinton? You are all bent out of shape because the Russians supposedly talked to the Trump campaign and put a few thousand posts on Facebook yet you have no problem with the entire Intelligence complex of the United States trying to determine the outcome of that same election? This is the largest abuse of power we have had in the histoir of America and someone needs to pay for it.
We understand the Establishmedia is so corrupt they have become irrelevant and that the DNC is rigged from top to bottom and that the District of Corruption is a swamp, but you cannot have the Justice Department taking sides to influence free and open elections. This is the same tactics which are used in the Soviet Union under Stalin or Cuba with Castro it is not supposed to occur in America. This is not pie in the sky rainbow glasses this is an absolute there is not supposed to be campaigning by the spy agencies since the advantages they have are obvious. In this case they were very likely passing on Trump strategies to the Clinton campaign and she was using them to damage Trump. She could and was passing things to the press and they dutifully used it to hurt his campaign. One such item was the Russian collusion story which was passed directly from the FBI to her although she also made up the dossier.
The fourth amendment in the Constitution gives every American the Right to Privacy from the gummit. This is not a suggestion or a possibility it is a guarantee and is supposed to be taken seriously by these agencies for them to exist without fear of American citizens. Because the Obama regime used communist tactics and broke down those walls either Obama ordered this or it was inferred to be ok to break these laws in the attempt to win a turd election to hide his criminal activities.
Whitewater was about breaking the Fourth Amendment and spying on a rival candidate by tapping their phones. It was not done by the FBI but campaign operatives who were most likely attempting to get an incriminating piece of information on Deans wife, but who knows. This is using the most sophisticated spying apparatus in the world to influence the outcome of the most powerful man in the world. For this heads should roll and is the biggest scandal this country has ever had.
There needs to be indictments on the principles who have obviously broken the law and work up the chain of command and find out who was at the top of it. We can guess it was Barak since it resembles his other abuses such as the IRS, but we have to give him the benefit of the doubt. The most important thing right now is to find out who is guilty of this treason and make an example of them. There is nothing worse morally than a dirty cop except a dirty FBI agent and that agent has to be made example to make sure this never happens again in America. Fifty years ago every one of these conspirators would have been given a fair trial and then offered a blindfold and cigarette in front of a pock-filled wall. These traitors deserve the same. Mr ex-President, what did you know and when did you know it?
Pray America woke
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
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.
TRUMP, CHINA AND TARIFS
Let me admit right now that I dont understand tariffs. As my limited understanding is a tariff is an extra charge put on good imported or exported. Generally that cost becomes part of the cost of goods sold and the consumer pays the tariff.
Thats pretty general and only half right I suppose but what I do know is that China agreed to a tariff arrangement with America and come the time to abide, they renege.
The Chinese .lying and stealing intellectual property is their way of life. The Chinese are fairly nice and industrious people but they are owned and operated by their government. And the government says to cheat, lie and steal intellectual property is okay.
So they do.
Stock market dropping over a thousand points past week.
I think the Chinese will cave.
LETS CHECK WHAT DELAWARES UP TO.
Well we gave you Biden, thank us very much.
The Delaware legislature is at the orgasm of the fiscal year. Every year as the calendar runs up to the end of June and the end of the legislative year, the lights burn bright in Dover as sneaky legislature is enacted.
Heres a review:
Senate Bill 82
Permit to Purchase Firearms
Sen. Laura Sturgeon, D-Sharpley
Replacing Senate Bill 69, this new bill makes changes to the language of the original. The revised proposal still seeks to create a system whereby Delawareans would need to obtain a "handgun qualified purchaser card" to purchase a handgun, or a "firearms qualified purchaser card" to buy rifles or shotguns. Obtaining the appropriate card would require applicants to complete a firearms training course, similar to what is required by Delaware's concealed carry permit law. The bill would also create a database of all firearm sales and transfers that would be accessible by law enforcement agencies and the court system. Individuals with concealed carry permits would be exempt from the bill's requirements.
STATUS: Discussed in the Senate Executive Committee this week, but not acted on.
NOT ACTED ON. Believe me the gun owners were out in force over this one. Because they will take our guns, they will record who gets one, they WILL TAKE AWAY OUR GUNS COME HELL OR HIGH WATER.
Maybe were safe for another year.
Senate Bill 70
Limiting Firearm Magazine Capacity
Sen. Dave Sokola, D-Newark
Also known as the Delaware Large Capacity Magazine Prohibition Act of 2019, this measure seeks to ban the sale and ownership of any firearms' magazines in Delaware with a capacity of more than 15 rounds of ammunition. Under the bill, possession of a large-capacity magazine would be a class B misdemeanor for a first offense and a class E felony for any subsequent offense. The bill would establish a buyback program for non-conforming magazines, at $10 per magazine. STATUS: Discussed in the Senate Executive Committee this week, but not acted on.
Cant have too much ammunition. Because if we cant take your guns away, WELL TAKE AWAY YOUR AMMUNITION!!!
Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 68
Banning the Sale of Certain Semi-automatic Rifles, Shotguns, and Handguns
Sen. Bryan Townsend, D-Newark-Bear
Introduced yesterday (5/9), this measure replaces Senate Bill 68, removing the "voluntary certificate of possession process" that was in the original legislation. According to the sponsor, the new bill is similar to the forerunner "in all other respects." It continues to seek banning the sale of dozens of specific makes and models of semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, and handguns in Delaware, as well as weapons with a combination of certain attributes. Those features include: a folding stock; a grenade or flare launcher; a flash suppressor; and a pistol grip that "protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon."
STATUS: Pending action in the Senate Executive Committee.
Maybe if we cant take all of your guns, WELL BAN THEM MODEL BY MODEL UNTIL WE GET THEM ALL!!
House Bill 140
Rep. Paul Baumbach, D-Newark
This bill seeks to create a process that would allow terminally ill Delawareans, with less than six months to live, to obtain and self-administer a lethal dose of medication. The patient's attending physician and a consulting physician would need to confirm eligibility and that he or she was capable of making an informed, rational decision. Individuals seeking this option would be required to be presented with all available alternatives including comfort care, hospice care, and pain control. Two waiting periods would be built into the process. The bill would not allow anyone to request the fatal dosage on behalf of another individual. The Medical Society of Delaware opposes the measure. As of that start of this year, only six states have enacted assisted-suicide laws (California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington). In Montana, the process is legal as the result of a court action.
STATUS: Discussed in the House Health & Human Development this week, but not acted on.
If you want t kill yourself, GET A BUNCH OF PILLS AND DO IT YOURSELF!!! DO NOT GET THE GUBMINT TO DO IT ELSE THEY WILL KILL ALL OF US WITH OUR OWN GUNSTHAT THEY CONFISCATED!!!
House Bill 130
Ban on Plastic Shopping Bags
State Rep. Gerald Brady, D-Wilmington West
This bill seeks to ban many Delaware retailers from distributing single-use plastic shopping bags. It would prohibit larger stores (at least 7,000 sq. ft.), and smaller stores with multiple locations, from issuing the bags starting in 2021. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, only three states -- California, New York, and Hawaii -- have banned single-use plastic shopping bags. STATUS: Released from the House Natural Resources Committee. Pending action in the House of Representatives.
If we cant take your guns, WELL TAKE YOUR PLASTIC BAGS!!!!
I say use the damn things to empty your cat litter pan.
So there you have it, all proposed by Democrats, all to take away our rights, all to have gubmint control our lives. 5/15/19
ATTORNEY APPOINTED BY WILLIAM BARR TO INVESTIGATE THE FBIS FABULOUS COUNTERINTELLIGENCE INVESTIGATION
His name is John Durham and as these things go he is acclaimed as wonderful, fabulous, handsome, glib and a wonderful attorney.
The politicos always say this when someone is appointed to investigate some issues for the gubmint.
I never heard of John Durham but then I dont live in the swamp, never even visited the place.
BUT ..Comey and his band of merry federal police should be worried. You dont go inserting yourself in Americans personal business, including presidential contenders, based on some stupid dossier. You dont go inserting people in those campaigns to spy on them, to hope to cause them to lose the election, at the least, get rid of them even if the stupid people of America voted him in.
THE FBI KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR US STINKY MINIONS.
I cant wait to see that arrogant Comey marched off to jail. He needs to stop writing books, granting interviews and acting like he knows all.
If I had one wish for this Durham guy .go after COMEY FIRST!
Get him the hell out of our lives!
ROD ROSENSTEIN TAKES ON JAMES COMEY
First, based on all Ive read about the Assistant Director of the FBI, Rod Rosenstein, I dont know whether he is friend or enemy. One of the big rumors going on about Rosenstein is he was somehow involved in some cockamamie plan to wear a wire and record the president.
I am not convinced Rosenstein is all that innocent but I do believe the guy knows the jig is up and James Comey will be writing his books in jail.
I like that bit about trampling bright lines that should never be crossed. And allegedly it was Rosenstein who urged President Trump to fire Comey.
So Rosenstein is out and about and mocking Comey, which alone shows he has some good sense.
Rosenstein is no longer the deputy Attorney General, having resigned from the position recently.
Looks like hes working on NOT going to jail.
MAY DORIS DAY REST IN PEACE
She loves animals and took care of many in her later years. She had a song that will last forever Que Sera. She was involved some way with Rock Hudson although it turns out that Rock got Aids and was not into women.
Heres hoping Day is in heaven, right near Rainbow Bridge, where there are lots of dogs to join her through eternity.
DONALD TRUMP JUNIOR TO TESTIFY BEFORE SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE
I dont know who this asshole Burr is except hes from North Carolina and will betray for most any reason.
President Donald Trumps eldest son will give private testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee in mid-June, as a result of a deal revealed on Tuesday.
Donald Trump Jr. will answer questions limited to five or six topics for up to four hours, reported Politico.
I just do not know why the White House and all those lawyers are allowing such a thing.
HERE Committee chair Richard Burr, the senior Republican senator from North Carolina, created tension with Trumps allies after issuing a subpoena for the presidents sons testimony, reported The New York Times. (RELATED: Montanas Democratic Gov Steve Bullock Announces 2020 Run)
Trump Jr. had already volunteered to show up for interviews but failed to appear twice, Burr told other Republican senators last week according to The NYT.
Now Burr is accused of caving to Democrats who are trying to weaken the White Houses position.
US NON-ESSENTIAL EMPLOYEES IN IRAQ TO LEAVE THE US EMBASSY IN BAGHDAD.
Been hearing about attacks on Saudi buildings, boats and airplanes. Supposedly its the Houthies or some such, a non-intelligent terror group as they mostly are. A group supported mightily by Iran.
Iran .a country that needs to go. About once every ten years the people of Iran rise up in protest. Many of them are killed, America tries to help but its not on us to get involved deeply in other countrys internal issues.
Iran .used to be Persia. I used to date a Persian. Handsome, handsome dude. Wanted me to go live with him in Persia. Said Id have to wear a hajib to meet his mother.
Me? Not gonna happen. But like I said, he was a handsome dude, loved his country.
Now its a swamp filled with nasty Mullahs supporting terrorists all over the world.
WOMAN SHOVES 74 YEAR OLD MAN OFF BUS TO HIS DEATH.
So she spends the rest of her life in jail.
Justice, its sweet.
A video of how she violently shoved this man to his death included at the link below.
HERE Police in Las Vegas have released shocking surveillance footage showing the moment a woman violently pushed an elderly passenger off a bus to his death as she now faces murder charges.
Serge Fournier was reportedly telling the unruly woman on the bus to be nicer to other passengers after she was heard cursing when he was shoved off the vehicle and landed head first on the sidewalk.
Video shows the 74-year-old being shoved down the steps of the public transit bus and smashing his face on the concrete ground.
In the CCTV clip taken from the bus' security cameras, a woman can be seen talking to Fournier as he walked past carrying a walker and heading towards the door.
Then as his back was turned she violently shoved him with both hands, sending the elderly man crashing down the steps.
DIBLASIO ..WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING?
Its been a long time since Rudy Giuliani was Mayor of New York. Giuliani was a great mayor, greatly reducing crime, making Times Square fun again and most important, he was NYs Mayor when those planes hit the towers.
Can you imagine that horrible Diblasio running things after September 11, 2001?
The man is not liked save by the illegal immigrants in NY and a couple of lefty buddies. In fact The NY Post points out:
If youre not laughing, then you dont know Bill de Blasio like we know Bill de Blasio.
ALABAMA'S ABORTION LAW
I am a bit confused by Alabamas new abortion law. Not that I dont understand it. Abortion, save in any case where the life of the mother is in danger, is illegal for all examples.
The scuttlebutt is that the idea is that this law will be appealed up to the Supreme Court. With Gorsuch and Kavanaugh now on the court, it is hoped that the court will refuse to make the law illegal and return such as abortion decisions to the states.
Banning Roe vs. Wade, in other words.
I got mixed thoughts on this matter. Although I dont suppose abortion will ever be banned in America. Some states might ban it but one wanting an abortion can likely go to another state where its legal and have an abortion.
That thought boggles the mind but it is argument against any debate that banning abortion takes away such an important decision for a woman.
Heres what I know .Rush Limbaugh said that he knows some women want an abortion because of conception by rape or incest. And that is a situation that boggles the mind. I would not want to have a rapists baby.
BUT like Rush says the argument against abortion for rape is that its not the babys fault.
And it is not. Of course not.
Same with incest. A 14 year old girl made pregnant by her father well its sad. But again, its not the babys fault.
All those so vehemently pro-choice have to do to change minds is find a 12 year old girl made pregnant by her own father. Bring her on CNN, interview her. Show her crying and expressing hate for those who are making bear her fathers baby.
Trust me. No one will say that its not the babys fault.
I think a female should be able to abort a baby up until three months along. None of this waiting until seven months to determine sex, than abort. Certainly a baby should not be killed AFTER birth as allowed in Virginia and New York. Maybe not Virginia but their Governor knows all about it.
Yes I think aborting a child after conception is murder. But for now, at this point, we cant all of a sudden bring back back-alley abortions and deny women their choice. Let those who think its okay to abort to face their savior and get any consequences on judgment day.
PRESIDENT TRUMP OUTLINES LEGAL IMMIGRATION PLAN
President Trump gave a short montage of his ideas to change LEGAL immigration. He wants to eliminate something called the Flores 20 day rule, which limits the holding of children to 20 days then they what? Become citizens?
Trump wants merit based immigrants rather the large percentage of family in America as entrance.
Trump states that if he gets no action on this congress they will wait until 2020 when the Republicans take back the House, already have the Senate and, of course, the presidency.
A LOOK AT A FEW OF THE PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDERS FOR THE DEMOCRATS
It hasnt been a busy news day and Im bummed as I learned that Rush Limbaugh will be gone the first three days of next week.
So I thought Id do a quick piece on a few of the current crop of Democrats who have thrown their hats in the ring to gain the Democrat nomination to run against President Trump.
I understand theres about 23 of them at this point. I will comment on those that stand out to me as very obvious with their intentions.
-Buttigieg .this guy is running as a test to see if America is ready for a homosexual president, add another test is to see if America is ready for a president male married to another male.
No way will this guy win but hes being financed by some homosexual lobby to see what the result of his run will be.
-Joe Biden .won't be too long, either his son's shame or something else will knock him down.
I believe Joe, against all odds, threw his name out there because this is his last chance. Guys been a senator for yay many years, VP for seven, and hes done pretty much nothing. And his son, Hunter, is involved in some Ukraine scam, along with Joe, that will not remain secret. I said he wouldnt run and I was wrong. I say he wont get the Democratic nomination but at this point the Democrats are so desperate to get a more normal type theyre hoping Joe Biden, with his VP background, can carry the load and beat Trump.
Wont happen. And Biden choosing Philadelphia as his base of operations has pissed off most of Delaware. Our tiny state has carried Biden to where hes at but he needs Pennsylvania in order to win, the hell with small Delaware and its two electoral votes.
-Bernie Sanders .will never beat Trump, wont get the nomination, is boring and has some skeletons in his closet.
--Bill DiBlasio .heh nobody wants him. His town cant stand the guy.
--Corey Booker .AKA Spartacus hopes to run on his being black and sneak in on President Obamas coat tails.
--Kirsten Gillibrand .nope. Would be nobody if not for Chuck Schumer and changes positions depending on the weather.
--Beto O'Rourke heh. We can see him shave and run and live the life of an average American.
--Elizabeth Warren .looking for VP slot, trust me.
Thats my assessment for now. Folks, I hope Biden gets the nod. Hes too gaffe-prone to carry it through.
The Week should be The Weak!! FNS is nothing, so I think I’ll take the family out to breakfast at Panera Bread...
Thanks for thread A.B. Barr seems to be headed in right direction. FBI Director is a real dud, but hopefully Barr will force him to do his job (and stop merely defending the “honor” of the Bureau). If not, Wray needs to go. Not getting hopes up over Inspector General reports, but do wish Durham is the Bulldog as portrayed in Whitey Bolger case.
“FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D(elusional)-Minn.(NOPE*), and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.”
I guess this is their idea of “fair and balanced” - an Anti-Trump leftist harpy and a never-Trump moron (whom I’m proud to say I refused to vote for).
In St. Croix, VI working. Arrived May 11th. and will be leaving this coming Saturday. Not sure why anyone would want to be here. Too hot and humid for this guy. Can’t figure out why all the vehicles are one the wrong side of the road.
The Never-Trump, Hate-Trump, Anti-Trump parade today!
You should watch Sunday Morning Futures...always worthwhile...I never miss it...
Once again you saved me the trouble.
Trouble brewing from a Justin Amash, Republican Congressman from Grand Rapids, MI since 2011. Son of Cristian Palastinian father and Christian Syrian mother, valedictorian, U of Michigan grad with honors and UM law. Comes out and says Barr lied to Congress and Trump should be impeached! What?!
So, this is what should be there:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D(elusional)-Minn.(NOPE*), and Pat Toomey, (Never-Trumpe)R-Pa. The discussion panel will include Ben Domenech, Co-founder & Publisher of The Federalist, Julie Pace, Washington Bureau Chief Propagandist, The Associated Pressitudes, Katie Pavlich, Townhall Editor/ Fox News Contributor and Mo Elleithee, Executive Commissar & Director of Georgetown University's Institute of "Leftwing" Politics and Public Service/Fox News Contributor
I wouldn’t pee on Pat Toomey if he were on fire and in front of me.
Life in the Left Lane. Here on St. Croix we do, in fact, drive on the left. Many historians believe that driving on the left was a custom carried over from the days of Danish rule, and when the U.S. Virgin Islands became a U.S. territory no one ever bothered to change it.
Why stop at certain semiautos?
Ban single action revolvers too! in the olden days desperados wired the trigger down an fanned the hammer.. pew..pew..pew!!
Then there are those high capacity lever action guns..
Notorious Never-Trumper and all around Leftist GOPer, Amash.
I heard he drank too much water from Flint.
Took just a little while to adjust, but it isn’t really much of a problem. What did surprise was how courtesy other drivers are. Traffic is rather heavy and the roads aren’t the best. Folks will flash their lights or honk the horn to let others out of a side street. Can’t imagine that back on the mainland. As much as I want to leave here I must say the place we are staying is something I could only ever dream about. Would post a couple of pictures if I had the technical expertise.
