The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
This is how we know that LOVE is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. 1 John 3:16
We just lost a special election here in Oregon where the establishment ran a self-prescribed moderate and lost twice in a row. When all of the experts try to explain that you have to run the perfect candidate to satisfy the moderates you need to ask them by what proof do they come up with that truth? There is more proof of Global Warming than moderate Repubs winning. As they point to all the Tea Party candidates who cost us elections we have seen in Blue Oregon that moderates dont fare any better and will be painted as rabid conservatives so why not run rabid conservatives who can defend themselves.
We ran a really nice guy who has a great family and is a small business owner who in many ways agrees with conservatives however he never really understood conservatism or how it relates to your freedom. He not only didnt have the ability to articulate it but he was told to make sure not to say anything that would offend the moderates or the media so he did not or could not. In addition the campaign as well as the Party used every means possible to make sure the volunteers never came in contact with the people to potentially say something that would offend voters or the media. So to control the message and make sure no Tea Party message went out they ran the entire outreach by phone banks. What we ended up with was a vanilla campaign and unenthused voters who never showed up with their ballots.
The excuses are as varied as the imaginations of those who ran this anemic campaign, from being outspent 5 to 1 or a 14% voter registration margin to mailers that lied, but in the end the Republicans never showed up. When you dont excite the conservatives you never get the money or their votes. These of course are obstacles to a campaign but they can be overcome by an aggressive attack with a candidate who can take the fight to the enemy. You will never beat the Dems by playing defense since they will always fire up their troops and get their voters out at the end.
We tried helping by running a strictly grassroots campaign to try to finally break the 35 year drought our district has had electing Dems and in the end couldnt do it. We were hamstrung by the Party and the campaign to the point of our precinct organizers being told not to organize their precincts or go door to door for fear of them volunteers saying the wrong thing. When they were asked if they could knock doors to bring in the ballots for our vote by mail we were told absolutely not, they only wanted phone callers and nothing else. This way they could protect their precious message of nothingness.
As bad and incompetent as this campaign may have appeared it is a perfect mirror of what the Mitt campaign will look like. Just like Oregon the national experts know exactly how and who to promote to win the election and manage the message. They believe they have the perfect vanilla anti-Tea Party message to win over those precious moderates when what they think they know is the exact opposite. Nationally we need a strong crusader for our message to move and educate those moderates or we will have the same exact result we had for our election. There is no difference between Oregon and the liberal cities. The free stuff message Ohbummer will be spreading which will be going against a stiff liberal Republican trying to outgive him and will never work.
With Mittwit we are heading down the path of destruction of the Party. Not only will it further divide the Tea Party from the Country Club as it did in Oregon it has almost zero chance of succeeding. We need to unite the Party and the only one who has a chance of doing that is with a Conservative. A Conservative can bring the Tea Party on board where half of your activists exist as well as reluctantly bring the Country Club as they have to compare him to Ocommie which should be no comparison even to them. Our election should be a huge warning that in a district that could have been won was lost by the experts in the Country Club who manipulated, bought and used Stalinist central planning techniques to manage the loss.
They will blame the voter imbalance, money and any number of excuses but it is a very good primer of what is going to happen in the fall if we nominate Romney who does not generate enthusiasm from the Conservative base and the Party relies on moderating their way to victory. His stiff demeanor will not connect with liberals and will be painted as a radical, rich, old white Conservative no matter how liberal he actually is. He will have no defense against those charges other than being more liberal and alienating the base who wont vote.
The bottom line is here in Oregon we were lectured and manipulated by the so called experts how this candidate gave us the perfect opportunity to win and the experts were wrong. These experts are either incompetent, corrupt or in alliance with the other side. In the end they get paid the same whether the candidate wins or loses so what have they got to lose. These managers are not ideologues but hired guns to manage a campaign and as long as the phone calls are being made and meetings being attended then the losses were managed perfectly. Choose wisely because there are some powerful people wanting this election to turn out exactly how they want it and right now is going according to plan, just like ours did. Dont let happen what happened to Oregon happen to America so be a bit pragmatic to unite and bust your butt behind Gingrich to defeat the Country Club. He is not perfect but right now it is him or the Country Club and a sure loss to Obama just like Oregon.
I wrote this in February of 2012 and reprinted it for people to remember how accurate I have been compared to the establishment. I have predicted the Presidency for the past four elections straight when they have been wrong on 3 of those four. I predicted that Trump would win this with Cruz second when everyone was pontificating on Bush and Walker. The one I am still waiting on is my Bernie longshot which is still possible.
This was to show how wrong the echo chamber is and I will now predict Trump in a tsunami for the General election. He will win big if he ignores his managers and trusts the people. He is the best candidate we have had since #NeverReagan. If he sticks to what he is doing he will be the next President of the United States.
Pray for America

Thanks for posting every sunday. Don’t often post but usually stop by and appreciate all the play by play and links
Sanders can destroy Hillary if he has the nerve. Just start calling her Crooked Hillary.
I wonder if these were recorded before or after Bernie (supposedly) discussed firing Debbie?
Never mind. Bernie mentions on Tapper interview, to air today...
We will have to make our own excitement here today since there wont be much on the driveby channels,lackluster guests.
Key Haven was scientifically chosen by Monroe County Mosquito control after extensive research to release male mosquitos that are known to kill off the species that carry the Zika virus.The area was specifically chosen since it best reflects areas know to hold Zika carrying mosquitos.The virus is extremely difficult to diagnose.
However, an overwhelming majority of the people of Key Haven have decided that they don't want to be "Guinea pigs" and don't want the mosquitoes that will kill the females carrying the virus to be released in their little community. In other words the ignorant people of Key Haven claim they know more than current science about the Zika virus and will not be used as "supposed" guinea pigs.
So it might be pertinent to address all questions to these rocket scientists who live in Key Haven for any answers about Zika since they obviously know more than current science.
These opinions are strictly mine and do not reflect any others.
Morning AB, All.
Thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably. Weather so icky here good day to sit, watch TV and monitor the FreeRepublic Sunday talk show thread.
Yes I had a lousy week....a horrible week. But I am not going to write about it, thank me very much.
Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom, thank you yon commenters for keeping the thread flowing.
I do have one favor I ask all of yon readers.
Please pray for me.
Because I can’t pray any more for myself. Prayer seems to be making things worse. That and God hates me.
Don’t tell me not. No innocent person would have so much misery piled upon them unless God hated them.
God hates me.
So I ask yon reader to please pray for me...maybe God will listen to other people, not one he hates so much.
Beyond that, I’m going to smile, type and enjoy some political discussion.
Finally, I am currently reading a great book and y’all know the author.
I’ll shut up now.
Registered voters, too.
I wonder how much more the Likely voters gap is?
It’s a beautiful day. I’m going to work outside this morning.
You’re in charge! Do a good job.
I got bites all over. I HATE them. I welt up and itch for days.
If any of ‘em got Zika, I’m probably already infected.
Hate the smell of DEET, but I’m spraying myself this A.M.
She’s my fave for VP...and she’s awfully easy on the eyes.
Pray for America
Brilliant as usual,great stuff.
We have a candidate who mirrors Trump big time running for the US Senate in Florida.
His name is Carlos Beruff.
Beruff spoke before our REC group in Marathon yesterday and he is indeed a formidable speaker and appears to have all the right stuff.
Born in Miami in the mid 50's of Cuban descent at the same hospital I was he has made a lot of money building houses and currently still builds 200 homes per year in Florida. He has been tasked over the years in helping straighten out various budgets across the sate and is credited with saving various governments local, state and soon federal millions of dollars dues to crooked politicos who spent money where it should not go.
Beruff is a strong capitalist candidate and pretty much what you see is what you get type of man.He does numerous TV spots in which he goes "off prompter" and simply tells his audience he is more comfortable talking "from the heart" than the prompter.
He will be a formidable candidate.
We also had some Trump leaders form South Florida who are super fired up and are building a platforms where they will launch the candidacy of Donald Trump in Florida. Everyone I have met associated with Trump is super fired up and ready to take on the hildabeast.
Wow happening sooner than I thought!!
