“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

…the other man’s conscience, I mean, not yours. For why should my Freedom be judged by anothers conscience? 1 Cor 10:29

What the Repubs in congress have to understand is no matter what is said about them by the Three Pillars of Propaganda, none of it translates into actual votes. They are being trashed by the media, the DNC and academia but the only way they will lose votes is if or when they cave. The Obots will never vote for them anyway, so to hold what they have and rebuild, they need to give their base a reason to believe, a reason to support them which means holding onto their dwindling principles.

It has been explained there is an unholy triad of academia, media and the DNC whose sole purpose is to promote their communist agenda to change America into a Soviet style Republic. The bad news is they have all the power although it has been falling since more and more understand their tactics as well as the failure of communism to perform. As this economy continues to fail and the attacks on the congress becomes more and more strident we will begin seeing cracks develop in the Pillars due to their lack of understanding of basic economics we have watched over that last four years.

In a second term there is a natural movement away from their chosen leaders as they need to reestablish a sense of objectivity when in reality they will be actually promoting their next liberal leader. In this case they will likely put some of the blame on Obamanomic mistakes such as healthcare not being single payor so they can promote Hilary as a more moderate leader. The media has to rebuild their credibility at some point after their slavish worship they have had for their messiah. If the sequester strategy doesn’t work or the American public actually remember the sequester was Obama’s idea when the media continued to paint the Repubs as being held hostage to the Tea Party, there will be some cracks begin to appear. People could actually remember the Repubs had a real budget which included targeted cuts and the messiah wanted tax hikes and military cuts. The media will never point out Obama’s was rejected 50-0 in the Senate, but people may remember? The Repubs finally caved to his sequester when he refused to send out the military paychecks.

If the Repubs want to actually be relevant to the American people they need to not budge on this and let the people find out their lives will work just fine without the minuscule cuts in programs. This is once again Ohbummer waving the bloody rag in an attempt to scare the American people into hating Repubs. He is in 24/7 campaign mode since anything else would require making actual decisions. It is much easier to be a bully with his corrupt media than to actually make any decisions slowing the growth of his utopian world order.

What the Repubs have to understand is no matter what is said about them or charges made, no votes have switched from Dem to Repub over this event. No matter what the outcome there will be no changing of minds or votes and all that will matter come election time is Getting Out our Votes. People have discounted everything that is said and have their own ideas which are not being reflected in polls or the current groupthink. What we are seeing from these polls is there is a common acceptance of the consensus thought and nobody is willing to go against that thought process. This has no relation to the way people will vote and their decision of voting will be determined weeks before the next election no matter what the current polls are saying. If the Stupid Party would dig in and show some leadership they would give people something to vote for rather than simply against. They are going to be accused of being evil anyway so they may as well give the Three Pillars a reason.

The primary reason we are losing elections is we don’t know how to get out the vote as well as the Dems do. They also know how to cheat better inside the cities since the ends justify the means, but they are beating us at getting out the vote. The ballot stuffing was simply miscalculated when Bush made it through and his recovery kept him in office. It isn’t a special message or brand, it is simply being able to motivate your base and make sure you physically are able to reach your voters and identify those who will vote for your candidates and make sure they do just that. Until you have the organization and manpower to increase your turnout in the 80-90% range there is no reason to complain about lost elections. If you don’t accomplish that, it has already been decided that your candidates are going to lose in the large elections.

What this means is all the Sequester arm flapping and doomsday rhetoric makes absolutely no difference whatsoever. None of those polls showing Americans blaming Repubs have any real affect on the next election since it will be long forgotten in a whirlwind sliming to be done by the Three Pillars weeks before the election. That is what you focus on and making sure you give your voters a reason to show up at the polls. This is where Romney failed and Obama succeeded by staying radical enough to get his people to believe they were stopping the evil rich guy from hurting the poor. Romney campaigned that he too would keep the evil rich from hurting the poor in the end and lost. He never gave people a reason to work on GOTV since he threw our principles out the window.

The Repubs have a chance at a do over. They are now in the spotlight and have a chance to stand strong against the upcoming onslaught. They need to proclaim this is a fight against all encompassing gummit and all of the control it represents. This is a fight to let the middle class keep more of their money and create jobs for those who want to work. This is a fight between free market capitalism and communism and if they do that they would give people a reason to vote for them in the next election. Or they can continue down the path of the Gutless Old Party and slip deeper into irrelevancy. The GOP needs to sequester the Sequester.

Pray for America

Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Bray’s. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.

Good morning AB!. I see ABC, NBC, and CNN have Sperling on this morning. I guess obama didn’t like Woodward’s accusations. It will be interesting to see if they try to downplay his comments or try to destroy Woodward. Methinks both.

I like to broach the Sunday morning bray with lots of optimism and such but the “resurrection” of the Republican Party is an event that will only follow the massive failure of Demovik-imposed Marxism, and that will take time and food riots (and such) before it happens.

As for the Republicans fully engaging voters with a strong, unwavering, CONSERVATIVE political agenda and profile, it ain’t gonna happen. The Republicans are a liberal front group with most of its power residing in blue states and country clubs.

The conceit that Bolshevism can be “voted out” of power is one thing. To imagine that liberalism can be presented as the winning alternative is to imagine that the USA is 1970s Naples or some such. Look for the sorry-ass Republicans to nominate Alexander Karensky to run in 2016.

They’ve been trying to fully discredit Woodward this week, smearing him, suggesting he’ll be dead soon and then the TRUTH ABOUT HIM will come out, etc.

But if Woodwardgate has any legs, no matter what is said about Woodward himself it will be incumbent that other reporters come out of the closet with similar complaints, and risk their careers.

The Demoviks understand that the rougher they are with Woodward the less likely others will risk challenging the Orthodoxy. As they sully Woodward, the message gets through to Joe Blow: Big Brother is watching.

Unless/until the Republican Party/GOP becomes a real alternative to the leftist Dem Party, the Pubbies will continue to lose. Why vote for the Dem-wannabes or Dem-lites?

There is only one way out of this mess.

Citizens for Enacting The Simpson-Bowles Plan

The American people should demand that both sides adopt the latest Simpson-Bowles Plan.

Enough of this insanity.

Sequestration will cost 2.14 million jobs, study says


Both sides are behaving like Kindergartners.

Enough of this - no more "Cliffs", no more "Deadlines", no more manufactured theater.

Sequester risks U.S. security: Simpson, Bowles

If both sides would simply adopt even a slightly modified portion of this plan, this would be over - and our nation could look forward to long term economic growth and our military security would not be gutted.

It's not perfect, but it is the best hope for getting the US out of this absolute partisan mess. Even the Canadians of both parties have said our government has lost its mind.

When I see any liberals talking about Woodward now, he is portrayed as a (connect the dots) “Drama Queen”. Nobody, but nobody, has pointed out that maybe he has always been a little dramatic with a tendency to exxagerate. Isn’t that how Watergate ended up being the Crime of the Century while the Bay of Tonkin incident and resolution were just little things?

Even if it is true that the Simpson-Bowles plan is the best-case alternative for “solving” our fiscal crisis, imagining that the American people are going to en masse get behind it requires a tin ear to how completely lost the people are.

Can you re-name it the Kardashian Plan?

Chrispy Creme Christie comes to mind. He's pro-abortion and anti-second amendment rights. All the RINOs adore him. Karl Rove and the Beltway professional campaign strategists love him. He's a weasel, dislikes genuine conservatives, and mocks the Tea Party. He'll fit in perfectly.

He'll also lose.

Did I mention he'll fit in perfectly?

Not too sure about this.

Bob W is a 70-year old center-left reporter and writer who practices a fading craft.

Watching him this past week evoked my last trip to colonial Williamsburg, where you can watch as artisans, trades and crafts-people dressed in 17th century costumes still build houses and make clothing the “old” way.

MTP

Boehner said the Dems came to the WH conference without any plan — that they have known for 16 months at the sequester deadline was coming.

Gregory: That isn’t true.

[Gregory basically calls Boehner a liar.]

Gregory just can’t see why Boehner won’t agree to raising taxes.

Boehner: We need to get serious about dealing with the spending problem.

Gregory can’t understand why the Republicans won’t allow more taxes. Says the president is committed to reducing the deficit [with fairy dust, David?].

Boehner: The spending problem must be addressed.

Boehner: The president already got his tax hikes. The problem is, Boehner repeats, is spending ... SPENDING.

Gregory remains deaf. There is no evidence that reducing taxes increases economic growth.

==

It is like Boehner is trying to explain economics, taxing and spending, to the Fence Post Turtle, without much luck.

Boehner is holding his own with Gregory, who is definitely carrying water for the Admin this morning.

Obama is going to eviscerate the military regardless of what any Republican tries to do about it. He won. He will be president for most of the next four years. He hates anything military. He is going to decimate our nuclear arsenal, our navy ships, our air force airplanes, and our ground forces. Nothing can stop him. We have to learn to live with it. At least with the sequester, we get a few other cuts, as well.

Dems/Media seem to be implying that the next crisis could possibly be a government shutdown, if the continuing resolution [for government budget/funding] runs into problems.

[In other words, the Dems/Media are hoping for a shutdown — knowing they can fully blame that on the Pubbies and, thus, improve their positioning for the 2014 elections.]

That's certainly how Liberals see it. However, it didn't take long for the anti-war crowd to turn on "LBJ's War".

An excellent case can be made that LBJ's Great Society was the Crime of the Century - at least in this country. Or maybe it was the (questionable) passing of the 16th and 17th Amendments?

All of the above steered the country down the wrong paths in a way which the Liberal lynching of Nixon never did or could.

Translation: Gregory can’t understand why the Republicans didn’t cave on Feb 28.

I’m sure the talk in the DC salons is more about Boehner’s stand than on Woodward’s comments.

Sperling’s appearance is just today’s deflection of attention (shifting the shell which has the pea under it) for whatever public still happens to be paying attention to our political situation.

He won’t eviserate it, per se. What he wants is a force loyal to him and his Demovik party, not the nation. And he’s getting there.

I agree with you about the sequester. Amazing there are finally “cuts” (albeit in proposed increases) and they are all BLAMING one another.

Not one person in DC wanting CREDIT for cutting the spending.

The Romneys are a class act compared to the circus now in the White House. Mitt got bad campaign advice from the so-called brains behind his campaign. He should have told them to take a hike. Plus, Obama played dirty politics which is the game the Democrats play.

I noticed that, too. That chart points out when the Dems took control of Congress. What about now? The House is controlled by the Pubbies. And Open-Checkbook-George was no friend to budget cutting.

This economic crisis cannot just be blamed on one party or the other. BOTH are responsible. Even now, Pubbie governors are folding, one after another, to get their share of the Federal Medicaid money under Obamacare from Santa Obama.

The Romneys are a class act compared to the circus now in the White House. Mitt got bad campaign advice from the so-called brains behind his campaign. He should have told them to take a hike. Plus, Obama played dirty politics which is the game the Democrats play.


You are more than entitled to your good opinion of Romney. You won’t get much sympathy for it around here. Loyal voters routinely blame their fave candidates’ advisors for losses at the polls—btu advisers reflect the candidates.

As for Mitt and Ann themselves, I see them as throwbacks— paleo-liberals much in the Jack and Jackie mold. He has great hair and she’s just gorgeous and beautifully gracious. It would have been RINO Camelot.

Karl doesn’t get it. Selecting token candidates will not win minority votes. We can’t beat the Dems with identity politics.

But, a heck of a lot better than a second Obama term.

Pathetic that a few other senators won't bother to show up once in a while.

LOL. The other senators are not being invited. The MSM decides who comes on these shows.
