“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. Psalm 119:18 KJV

Watching these hearings is like seeing SchifforBrains playing chicken with a brick wall and him expecting the wall to swerve. At what point do you finally realize the wall does not get hurt and your Party needs to stop even if the donors want him to go pedal to the metal? Oh well, it could not happen to a bigger pile of Schiff.

So far you have three disgruntled employees who were canned for incompetence still thinking they know better than the President even while continuing their gorging at the trough. The key moments of this complete abuse of power were the only questions which mattered was, Was the President guilty of any crimes? The answer from all three was no, done and end of your self-indulgent Schiff House bore-O-Rama. Is this Schiffy’s attempt at starring in The Apprentice? If so, your fired Schiffhead.

President Donald J Trump must be laughing at these maroons as they continue to make fools of themselves. This was a weeklong infomercial on why you should reelect Trump for President. When even his enemies say he is innocent of any malfeasance to prove guilt and after three years of investigation what more does America need to see? The guy must be the most honest person it has had in the office for decades and maybe ever?

Imagine last night’s debriefing with Nazi Pelosi when her teeth hit the floor from screaming about this complete fiasco? “So SchiffBreath what did you prove this week to the American people that is in any way a crime of bribery? His transcript of the phone call looks normal and I am going out claiming bribery and extortion from that? I pray you have something next week or we are going to be served with dressing and cranberries in two weeks.”

If there ever was an example of what not to do this is it. These denizens of the swamp are used to playing by swamp rules and Trump is playing by Trump rules. He is a Master of Marketing and sales while they are masters of graft and corruption. They have been so sheltered by their adoring press they have never had to do anything buy make a list of clichés while the mediots would fawn and faint over their brilliance.

Now they are under their own spotlight and having to perform with extremely limited skills. Meanwhile the cameras shift to Trump speaking with the Turkish President while working to protect the Kurds as he pulls out of another never-ending war. The difference couldn’t be more clear to the American people. While the Communist Party is playing the ultimate game of chicken, the President is working to bring their boys home from a war we should have never been in.

So Scared Schiffless is having his fake trial bringing his witnesses in front of his inquisition claiming guilt without a single piece of evidence. Even with his hanging judge witnesses he has proved the President innocent of whatever charges he invented. This is the biggest abuse of justice this country has ever witnessed as one Party uses its majority as a weapon to remove a President without cause. Yet they claim they are being stewards of abuse while they are mired in it.

This SchiffStorm is a perfect example of why America threw the Trump grenade to DC. turned out it was nuclear.
They are witnessing the largest meltdown in its histoir while exposing Moscow on the Potomac. From the obvious bribery and laundering of those bribes by Hunter for Slow Joe Biden to the coup attempt by the FBI and CIA. There never has been a clearer reveal and now we are seeing how it is done overseas in a Shiffhole like the Ukraine. You can even see how that fake invasion by Russia was used to make Biden richer which is done by almost everyone in the Beltway.

Thank you DumbSchiff for your new reveal. You exposed the innocence of Trump with a list of incompetents which cannot be matched in the private world. To imagine this Harpy is teaching at prestigious Georgetown U is just icing on the corrupt cake. She didn’t even have to fake being Indian only say she worked for their messiah and she was instantly able to teach future ambassadors how to embarrass America. It is all revealed far better than Trump or Barr ever could.

There was no way the Repubs or Trump could expose this much corruption to the American people as Nazi and FullofSchiff has. These career bureaucrats show who and what they are and how they do not have the interest of America at heart only their own craven need for power. They are outraged at Trump’s America first and look down their noses at such a jingoistic philosophy when, it is brilliant. Imagine if everyone loved America warts and all to do whatever it took to make her even better for future generations? Who knows how far she could go or how many lives America could improve if she did not have the people in power do what was right for America rather than hating her?

What a Schiffy way to live their lives militarizing the House. To abuse your power with a false accusation and impeachment to affect the outcome of next year’s elections is a new low. You then take away the accused Right to counsel or ability to call witnesses and hold most of your so-called trial in your dungeon.

This is how Democratic Socialists like Stalin and Mao run their courts and elections not America. Those kids in Hong Kong are not going to concentration camps after a Schiffy trial with no lawyers to never be seen again, for Pelosi’s definition of justice. These Communist dictators have a lot in common and are being revealed completely. Lady Liberty’s Torch is exposing the entire DC cabal and for which we must thank stinky Schiff.

Pray America wakes up

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 you Rodguy for fishing tales and political perspectives from all angles, 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.

Tues 11/12/19


  ….just some follow-up on prior stories, some smiles, some intrigue


Like most Americans I was horrified at the deaths of nine American women and children in Mexico.

Evidently drug cartels own Mexico and run everything.

This story has many of us confused. First, why women and children who, evidently, had nothing to do with drugs. At least so we think.

Also, it’s strange that these people are American and, allegedly, move to Mexico to avoid issues with multiple wives as allowed in some versions of the Mormon religion.



The deaths of nine women and children has thrust into focus a small religious community and their long history in a remote corner of northern Mexico.

Six children and three women – all US citizens – were massacred on a dirt road nearby, when gunmen ambushed their convoy of SUVs, killing children at point-blank range and shooting one mother as she begged for their lives.

[snip]The region is understood to be the site of a battle for dominance between an organized crime group known as La Línea, based in Ciudad Juárez in Chihuahua, and another group known as Los Salazar based in Sonora and affiliated with the Sinaloa cartel.

[snip]Relatives of the victims acknowledge that the security situation in the region had started to deteriorate as the rival crime groups battled to control the isolated road running north towards the frontier.

But the incident has also thrust the isolated Mormon communities into the spotlight, highlighting their long history in a harsh corner of the country, their origins as religious renegades fleeing US laws against polygamy – and their more recent brushes with Mexican drug cartels.


According to the above article this whole episode was the result of a feud between rival cartels and these Mormons just happened to be in the way. And, yet, I scratch my head. There’s something very “off” about this story.



As I write this it is Veterans Day 2019. When it is read it will probably be well beyond. Still and so, let us never forget those that fought the battles that we may be free.

Thank all yon veterans for your service.



These hearings will be public although the Democrats, in their very fair and forthright manner, are deciding who to ask and what to ask them.

Below a pictorial prediction of the outcome of this nonsense.



This link for this hilarious snippet below.

Out of nowhere, and on the air waves of MSNBC, a student being interviewed shouts that “Epstein did not kill himself”.


Cameras not working in the jail cell. Not one, but TWO guards are napping. Epstein was supposed to be under ongoing scrutiny.

Everyone knows he didn’t commit suicide except the law people. Too many of our Ruling Class used Epstein for purposes they do not reveal.

And they have all the power.

As we are learning.



Really funny

Weds 11/12/19


  It stands for “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” and it protects children who were brought to this country by their illegal immigrant parents. The reasoning is that the children never knew any country but America and it would really be unfair to send them to a country where they likely do not know the language all that well and know little about the culture.

President Obama came up with this law all on his own, as he was wont and known to do.

As of this writing, the Supreme Court is going to take up this hot mess today.

If the Mighty Court does it right, they will rule that CONGRESS makes the laws, NOT the president all on his own. President Trump can thereby “repeal” this DACA law.

Below from

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is an American immigration policy that allows some individuals with unlawful presence in the United States after being brought to the country as children to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and become eligible for a work permit in the U.S. To be eligible for the program, recipients cannot have felonies or serious misdemeanors on their records. Unlike the proposed DREAM Act, DACA does not provide a path to citizenship for recipients, known as Dreamers. The policy, an executive branch memorandum, was announced by President Barack Obama on June 15, 2012. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services began accepting applications for the program on August 15, 2012.


I suppose arguments could be made that the children are innocent. But it’s a mess and mostly keeps entire illegal families in America because, well who’s going to take care of these children when their parents are deported?

The Supreme Court, however, like the Deep State in D.C., doesn’t always use the constitution, as they are supposed to do. Sometimes they make laws on their own too.



This is why President Trump complains about America getting involved in endless wars. We’ve been in Afghanistan for 18 years now and still they go all about setting off suicide bombs.

I know it’s not considered nice to poke fun at another culture, but folks, the Muslims are just not people who want to live side by side in peace.

And that’s okay. Cultures should live as they want.

But America needs to stop trying to make the world a nicer place.

Send those mistreated in another culture money, ammunition, hell we even welcome them into America for safety.

But no more sending our soldiers all over the world to fight that which will never change.


US Convoy Reportedly Hit by Suicide Attack on Kabul-Paktia Highway in Afghanistan ASIA & PACIFIC 10:50 12.11.2019

The reported attack took place at around 11.00 a.m. local time (06:30 GMT). The US military has yet to comment on the claims. DETAILS TO FOLLOW




Seems like everybody has a book. Me? Man I got five of them coming out.

Nikki Haily is the former ambassador to the United Nations. My elder memory recalls there were flap ups between her and President Trump.

Still and so, her books tells of former Sec. State Rex Tillerson and that awful former military buy, John Kelly, trying to talk Haily into joining them in “saving the country”.

Saving the country my eyeball. That Deep State thinks THEY should decide things, not the nut us silly morons duly elected.


Haley recounts a closed-door encounter with then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country … Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president’s decisions was because, if he didn’t, people would die. This was how high the stakes were, he and Kelly told me. We are doing the best we can do to save the country, they said. We need you to work with us and help us do it. This went on for over an hour.”



He is 95 years old and he has fallen several times that caused him severe health problems.

God bless him and here’s hoping he recovers and has a wonderful time left on earh.


Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was admitted to a hospital on Monday evening for a surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, caused by bleeding due to his recent falls, his spokeswoman said.

The procedure is scheduled for Tuesday morning at Emory University Hospital, Deanna Congileo said in a statement. Carter has fallen at least three times this year, and the first incident in the spring required hip replacement surgery. He traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, and helped build a Habitat for Humanity home after getting 14 stiches following a fall on Oct. 6. And he was briefly hospitalized after fracturing his pelvis on Oct. 21. He received a dire cancer diagnosis in 2015 but survived and has since said he is cancer-free.

  Why yes I did chance to watch much of that fabulous and riveting display of congressional stupidity called the impeachment hearings.

Because folks, we have a former VP whose son got billions of dollars from the Ukraine and yet we have the President, who is looking into this factoid that seems so suspect, being judged before a group of Representatives in the House for daring to ask the Ukraine to look into it.

I don’t know about yon reader, but I was born at night, but NOT LAST NIGHT!

The Democrats are only putting on this show to protect not only the cheating Bidens, but also the Obamas, indeed the entire Obama administration.

Because while Hunter is a wonderful sailor who can cruise while on cocaine, he did not get to keep all this money for himself. I’m betting Hillary’s campaign got a bunch of cash. No doubt various Democrats got campaign cash and hey, I’m thinking Jeffrey Epstein probably got a few bucks thrown at him.

By the way, Epstein DID NOT kill himself.

The idea is to keep President Trump on the defense to avoid casting aspersions on Biden and the whole group of them.

Folks, I do not believe Americans are going to buy this for one minute.

For the record, the House Republicans did a great job of questioning, as of today, the acting ambassador to Ukraine, William Taylor, and some guy named Kent.

None of these two people actually talked to President Trump.


They are testifying about some innocent phone call Trump made and they never even talked to the guy!

All they kept saying is my janitor’s mother-in-law told me… barber’s son’s girlfriend mentioned….three times my car mechanic, who heard the whole phone call he said, told me….

They really do think we were born at night….LAST NIGHT!



So ole Sean Spicer got booted off of “Dancing With the Stars”. Heh. His last score, for the Argentine Tango, were sixes, one each, from four judges.


Folks, there is a new trend out there in the retail world. I speak of the self-checkout.

Around me, WalMart just put in about eight aisles of conveyor belts with scanners for customers to check themselves out.

Up the road from me a new Royal Farms has been built. They have only one cashier on duty. There are two registers for self-checkout.

Nobody, save those with a few items in Walmart, are using them.

I am willing to give it a try but lookit, just the other day I purchased two gift cards. One HAS to go to a human cashier to have these things scanned and activated. There’s also those times we question a price and I can’t imagine trying to weigh produce and such.

I think it’s a horrible idea. And it does not seem to be working. People are just not using the things.

It’s not like it’s any easier. You still have to pile the items on the conveyor belt, bag them, handle the money. If you use cash you have to feed twenty dollar bills and such into an ATM sort of thing.


I predict not going to work.

Still and so, soon we will order our stuff online and either pick it all up, already bagged ready to pay for, directly at the store. Or, soon again, drones will be delivering our orders directly to our doors.

Having the customer ring up his or her own goods is just not going to work.

Fri 11/15/19


  …nothing major….follow-ups, tidbits to major events, gossip if nothing else works.

So Deval Patrick is running for a nomination to be the presidential contender for the Democratic party.

Patrick was the Governor of Massachusetts following the wonderful Mitt Romney. He seems to have been respected for the job he did. Before that he was Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division under Bill Clinton.

Patrick has a wife and two daughters. One of his daughters, Katherine, came out as a lesbian.

All females in Massachusetts are lesbian it seems like.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.



Why, WHY? On earth would a drag queen attend congressional hearings on the impeachment of the president?

Can’t make it up.



I have, nor HAD, any issues with Sessions as a Senator. Yes he followed Trump around like a puppy during his campaign. After the election, Sessions accepted a position as the country’s Attorney General.

In a surprise move, Sessions recused himself from the famous Mueller investigation. More odd, he did not tell President Trump, his boss.

This did not make Trump happy, but of course.

As for me, I think there was some secret Sessions was trying to hide. How many of us would do such a major thing without discussing with our boss?

I do not trust Sessions, whether because he was too weak to be a man and do the right thing, or because I have dark suspicions about the man.

At any rate, he was a terrific Senator and I wish him luck.



Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the case Wednesday for President Trump to support his second run for to represent Alabama in the Senate, saying that if he elected he would support the president aggressively.

"He didn't have a better supporter in the United States Senate than when I was there. I was his first supporter in the United States Senate," Sessions said on "The Ingraham Angle." "And if I go back to the United States Senate, he won't have a more aggressive, determined supporter when I get back."

Sat 11/16/19


Well this was odd. It was his birthday. He had six bullets. He went into school, pulled his gun out, shot four people in his surround then shot himself of the head.

He appears to be Asian, perhaps Philippine.

In California, where they have no guns!


The suspected shooter has been identified as Nathaniel Berhow, the Los Angeles Times and CNN reported, citing unnamed law-enforcement sources. He turned 16 on the day of the attack.

His neighbors and friends have largely described Berhow as a quiet, unassuming student who was active in varsity cross-country and his local Boy Scout squad, the LA Times, CNN, and the Associated Press reported.

The suspect attempted suicide by shooting himself in the head after the attack, and is now in a critical condition in hospital.




Click on the link above and you can view the comments of FreeRepublic members while they watch the marvelous and ridiculous impeachment inquiry with an Ambassador who got fired.

Folks, I cannot, simply cannot, stand the woman. She is not a boo-hoo maven to me. I think she was knee deep in allowing Ukrainian funds go to the Bidens, who no doubt spread enormous funds around the Democrat party.

But my biggest question, lest the Dems on the Intelligence committee think I was born at night….LAST NIGHT. This woman was fired, rightfully so as I see it, in April 2019. The famous phone call President Trump made to the Ukraine president happened in what? July 2019?


She has nothing to do with Trump although he fired her.

And they want to impeach him for firing this nothing burger?

As for the famous tweet by Trump…..heh.

What a waste of time, what a pitiful waste of time with this woman.

Wow. All the panels for the network shows, i.e., Fox, MTP, FTN, and TW are totally weighted against Trump. A coincidence? I don’t think so. The MSM is working with the Dems to take the kill shot this coming week. Impeachment fever will reach its zenith before Thanksgiving.

In the meantime, the IG report is always just over the horizon. Demoralizing and depressing.

Good morning, Pat. Thanks for the weekly rundown.

Re DACA: It is an Executive Order by Obama, not a law. Trump ended the program with an EO, but the activist courts have prevented him from doing so. SCOTUS should rule in Trump’s favor.

The supporters of DACA intentionally misstate what are the actual criteria for eligibility. Nowhere is it mentioned being brought here by one’s parents. As long as a minor, age 15 or under, gets into the US, accompanied or unaccompanied, he / she meets one of the criteria. This is why the vast majority of recent illegal aliens are unaccompanied minors. DACA is the incentive.

Re the Ambassador: She was not fired. Her three year posting was curtailed by three months. She still works for the State Department as a diplomat in residence at Georgetown. She was angling for a year’s extension in Kiev, but the WH nixed it.

An ambassador is the President’s personal representative to the host country. He can remove any ambassador for any reason or no reason at all . The fact that Trump allowed her to finish her three year posting save for three months makes this whole affair ludicrous.

Some excellent reads, if you haven’t seen them already:

Note: I know nothing about “Loomered” and whether or not they are a reliable source, but if this is even partially true .....

Note: Johnny B. has been a very BAD boy. Hanging for treason or jailed for life for sedition is what he deserves ... the first option would be my choice.

But I have never seen it this one-sided. There is not one panel member on all four networks who is remotely pro-Trump. I can’t recall that happening before.

I am frustrated by that also. BUT, I think what is going on behind the scenes is a negotiation as to who will be the fall guys for 0's treachery and misdeeds. Trump is the deal maker, it is in his DNA. He knows that ultimately taking 0 down would absolutely blow the country apart.

Brennan is squealing very loudly - that means that the exposure is getting closer.

Fitton and Solomon are openly accusing 0 of being the force behind this treason.

Morning AB yet another action packed week on the political front with many issues at hand.
Here's one I have been working on since I was given a suggestion to review Baar’s speech by an impeccible source and as usual he was right. It's phenomenal. Here's some notes I made after watching it. By the way it's right here on Fr all printed out so neatly anyone can read it:

and I advise everyone here to both watch it online and read it,since it's a true work of art.

Baar believes that the executive branch of govt. needs to be held by a strong leader with power equal to the legislature and with the executive branch applying laws passed by the legislature.
He remarked that early states, in the early 1800’s that passed strong legislatures and weak executives were all but failures due to weak executives.
Baar suggests that the founders believed that it was
prudent to invest power into a single hand, that of the President with authority to defend the country in most any way necessary.
Baar believes that executive power had been weakened over the past few decades in favor of socialistic tendencies now quite apparent.
The presidency should be a check on the legislative branch under 17th century Whig theology and thought accd. to Baar.
Power sharing should be decidedly well organized and delineated.
Recently both legislative and judicial have been encroaching on the Presidency.
Example:dems using “the resistance” to sabotage Trump. Baar says resistance being used connotates sabotage which is what it really is and places politics into the process instead of just being the loyal opposition. Instead, the hard left is engaged in a war to cripple a duly elected Presidential govt.
Inserting the politics of sabotage is designed to prevent the potus from building a functional branch of govt.*******
Dems are drowning the executive with an avalanche of subpoenas designed to not allow the executive branch to function normally.
Those who oppose the potus constantly accuse the president of destroying the constitution which is just more projection, IMHO.
Trump was up front about what he wanted to do and the people decided that they wanted him for President.
“The left constantly undermines the rule of law and shreds the norms of normal govt.”
Hard left treats politics as a religion accd. to an abstract ideal of perfection. They pretend to be virtuous people with an ideal end. They never ask if their rules are fair and balanced and it amounts to shredding constitutional norms.
Rule of law should include: “is it good for all of society.?”
The founders envisioned that: Compromise should be forced by both branches of govt. with each branch being forced to compromise their views with the other.
Courts routinely excerpt the power of the President. In The travel bann example, Baar believes judicial review is expanded. These types of powers were meant to be solved by the Presidency where unusual problems with time sensitive issues need solutions quickly.
Courts are routinely excerpting the power of the presidency when it was designed that they would only look at Executive orders,EO’s, issued by the presidency.
Every major policy*********** of the Trump adm has been subjected to immediate freezing by the courts with judges appointed by former left wing Presidents like Obama or Clinton. Presidential policies are being frozen nation wide by 600 judges.This has created judge shopping.
Daca was an EO by zero and it’s illegitimacy upheld by the courts. The left uses judges to achieve the destruction of trumps policies. Few are approved by Trump due to the courts constant interference.
Baar believes that the Supreme court is setting itself up as the ultimate judge of military decisions giving foreign combatants US citizen rights which Baar believes is beyond stupid. The Supreme Court is creating rules for war!! What idiots.
“It’s not the courts job to protect foreign enemies, that’s insane.”
Baar believes that it’s Critical for the presidency to continue to be manned by a strong independent leader providing leadership in a variety of issues.

If you take one small part of Baar’s speech and really think about it:

“Recently both legislative and judicial have been encroaching on the Presidency.
Example:dems using “the resistance” to sabotage Trump. Baar says resistance being used connotes sabotage which is what it really is and places politics into the process instead of just being the loyal opposition. Instead, the hard left is engaged in a war to cripple a duly elected Presidential govt.”
It might pay to go one step beyond. We already know the above it just has not been so well organized as Baar has laid it all out,sheer genius.
What needs to be done at this point is to decide whether or not the DNC has what it takes to put all this together.If you come up with the same answer I do that: “they are too stupid to get the job done” that they are merely following someone else’s lead. Than the question becomes who has designed this entire process of unseating a duly elected President.?
The answer doesn't take much insight if you have been paying attention to what transpires since before Trump was elected and the day after he took office,it's quite apparent.
First and foremost the fisa warrant was begun some time ago. When you get to the bottom of it you quickly learn that at least one of the major players if not “the” key player was none other than:John Brennan,muslim supreme,and head of what organization?CIA!
Has this factoid escaped the view of the administration?Hardly! Brennan is under review and has been along with many other players.Best guesses are their time will come for the orange jump suits.
Yet another more recent player Eric Ciaramella(cinderella) has quite the assoc. with the CIA and Brennan for that matter as do so many other players you begin to get

the picture that there is one and only one major player behind the goal of upending the Trump presidency and it all starts with the company.
Ironically,Barr was a full-time CIA operative! Recruited by Langley out of high school, starting in 1971 after Barr attended Columbia University, where he majored in government and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1971. Barr’s youth career goal was to head the CIA.
When Bush 41 became CIA Director in 1976, Barr joined the CIA’s “legal office” and Bush’s inner circle, and worked alongside Bush’s longtime CIA enforcers Theodore “Ted” Shackley, Felix Rodriguez, Thomas Clines, and others.

The piece above suggests that Baar’s CIA roots began with his Father and that Baar is and was a secret deep stater with friend like Rosenstein and notedly Mueller.Supposedly Baar and Mueller were “close” to say the least.
So the question becomes who is Baar today? I have sources on both sides of the question. Some say he's still deep state others say that he's the absolute best choice that Trump could have made.
Others suggest he has done little when it comes to jailing the bad guys. But, timing can be crucial. And when it comes to second guessing Trump that's not for me.
Most likely the most prudent thing to do these days is to judge by actions. Let's see what the guy does and doesn't do.
For me after reading and watching Baars impeccable speech before the Federalist Society above it's hard to imagine Bill Baar as deep stater. Impeccible sources claim that he's the real deal and we should support him all the way.
You have to wonder however how he can do such a wonderful piece like the above and not mention even once the influence of the CIA? They are all over the place trying their best to help the DNC and destroy Trump. Most liely he has numerous gag orders placed on him so he is prohibited from mentioning them and if he wanted to lay out a story that points directly to them he could hardly have done a better job than what he did.
For now the jury is out. On the surface it appears things are happening at a slow pace as far as jailing bad guys. At lest what we know about. If you look a little deeper you soon learn that lots of actions are going on in the background and that Trump is destroying the deep state faster than anyone ever anticipated. Is Baar a part of that?Hard to imagine he's not.
That's good enough for me for now.

Hello Deval, goodbye Joe. Obama wants Patrick to be the nominee. The current top tier includes two old white men, an old white woman, and a young, gay white male. Close to 40% of Dem voters are minorities. There will be a minority on the Dem ticket this time and Obama/Jarrett want Patrick at the top. Harris and Booker aren’t cutting the mustard.

According to Susan Rice, Obama did it “by the book.” Brennan was the quarterback, Jarrett and Rhodes the coaches, and Obama the owner. I doubt Obama will ever be held accountable.
