The Morning Report — 7/17/24

—J.J. Sefton

Ear-Ron-Biden.jpg

Good Morning Kids. The attempt on Trump's life over the weekend remains the top story and now there's a new wrinkle to add which Ace touched upon late yesterday. Evidently, intel sources are revealing that they were tipped off about an Iranian plot to take Trump out. And yet despite supposedly beefing up security around Trump this Crooks character was able to get up on a roof and get off a round on Trump. Rooftop slope notwithstanding.

The Trump campaign would not disclose whether it was made aware of the Iran threat. “We do not comment on President Trump’s security detail. All questions should be directed to The United States Secret Service,” the campaign said in a statement.

The Secret Service recently “added protective resources and capabilities to the former President’s security detail,” agency spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement on Sunday.

Secret Service officials have warned the Trump campaign repeatedly against holding outdoor rallies, which pose greater risks than events to which the agency can better control access, people briefed on the matter said. The warnings have been more general in nature, the sources said.

Security concerns forced Trump’s campaign to halt spontaneous events where the Secret Service couldn’t sweep guests.

This is bullshit. That said, the Biden junta's close ties to Iran vis a vis the drive to make them the power brokers in the middle east and desire to abandon Israel, puts this in a very disturbing light, and cannot be dismissed. Trump back in power is not good news for Iran and of course Foggy Bottom.


With Trump’s security detail understaffed, under-resourced, and stretched to its limits, Biden’s security regime reportedly diverted even more resources to a hastily planned Jill Biden event that just happened to be in the area.

Biden’s security regime then ordered the most obvious assassination perch in the entire area to remain outside the main security perimeter.

Furthermore, Biden’s Secret Service director ordered law enforcement and counter-snipers OFF the roof the assassin used.

If that weren’t enough, Biden’s security regime also refused to block the line of sight from the assassin’s perch to Trump’s location. When law enforcement radioed in a suspicious person using a laser range finder at the building and even took photos of him, nothing was done to detain the assassin.

Meanwhile outside the RNC there were at least two incidents where an armed suspect was shot and killed and another armed with an AK-47 wearing a ski mask was apprehended.

So, even if a massive cheat fails and Trump wins, there is no way in hell the Left will ever cede one iota of power and influence, be it in government or anywhere in our society. And yet there are signs of trouble in worker's paradise. No not the true believers and unreachable brainwashed drones, but others like the working class, and even blacks and other disaffected reliable Democrats that realize everything they've been told is a lie. Time will tell. But what cannot go on will not go on. Maybe we are at that inflection point in history. Please God it's a point where a correction occurs, and not the plunge into the abyss.

  • Microsoft's former DEI leader has blasted the company in an internal email after the entire team was laid off, sort of. (IGN)

    Yes, a Microsoft DEI team leader did indeed blast the company in an internal email after their entire team was laid off. That is true.

    But don't celebrate just yet. Microsoft has many DEI teams.

    The email though is exactly what you would expect from these parasites:
    Unofficially in my opinion, not specific to Microsoft alone, but Project 2025 looms and true systems change work associated with DEI programs everywhere are no longer business critical or smart as they were in 2020. Hence the purposeful and strategic 3-5 year shelf life of many company's inclusion commitments post the murder of George Floyd are being reevaluated.
    Fire them all.

Fantastic News: The Secret Service is Increasing Their Protection of Trump Due to Iranian Assassination Threat.
Whoops, Terrible News: They Already "Increased" Security

—Disinformation Expert Ace

Which means the sh*tshow we saw on Saturday was the Secret Service in "enhanced security mode."

At least I think it does. It's not clear which day specifically this threat was detected.

Two federal law enforcement sources told Fox News the level of the plot by Iran is unclear.

The sources said there has been an increase in Secret Service protection to Trump in recent weeks because of the intelligence.

The Department of Homeland Security and Secret Service has been increasingly concerned about Trump holding outdoor events, and have even expressed concern to Trump's campaign.

Trump has been increasingly targeted since Soleimani's killing in January 2020, but the new threat only developed over the past few days.

The sources also said the Iranian plot is not connected in any way to the attempted assassination of Trump by Thomas Crooks.

Jill Biden was in Pittsburgh on Saturday, giving an indoor speech to practically no one.

We have yet to see if Kim Cheatle diverted resources to protect the very unthreatened First Doctor Lady, leaving Trump with an understaffed C-Team.

But I bet we all know which way to bet on this one.

Meanwhile, our Non-Intelligence Community has an exciting new hoax for America: After a leftwing lunatic attempted to shoot Trump after years of Assassination Prep by the media and Deep State, they've decided that the real threat they should devote all of their resources to sleuthing out is the threat of political violence posed by the right wing.

Let's skip right over the Trump assassination attempt and put all of our eggs into the "right wing backlash" basket.

U.S. authorities are concerned about possible attacks in retaliation to the attempted assassination of Donald Trump, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security said Monday in a rare joint intelligence bulletin.

Violent extremists or others "may attempt follow-on or retaliatory acts of violence" in response to the attempted assassination of Trump at a rally over the weekend in Pennsylvania, the agencies said in the bulletin obtained by POLITICO.

No specific targets are mentioned, but the four-page bulletin notes that extremists have conducted or plotted attacks against "perceived political or ideological opponents," in the past, the DHS and FBI said.

So we'll be splitting our limited Non-Intelligence Community resources between the Iranian threat and the ever-present threat of parents yelling at school board meetings, as usual.

Mollie Hemingway has doubts about the Deep State's latest "right wing terrorism" op:

Mollie @MZHemingway

On a scale of Jussie Smollett to the Gretchen Whitmer fednapping, how real is this alleged threat?

They're going to blow off investigations into leftwing violence and leave Trump exposed to another attack in order to continue using FBI plants to ringlead fake "plots."


Keep it up, guys. Keep it up.

We're going to have to fire a lot of people, and prosecute a bunch, too.

Disney Degeneracy Revealed as Someone Leaks the Company's Internal Slack Chats to James O'Keefe

—Disinformation Expert Ace

More from the Groomer Corporation.

James O'Keefe and his "O'Keefe Media Group" (OMG) got their hands on internal Slack communications. "Slack" is an application used by businesses to communicate internally between employees and managers, helping to organize and direct work within the company. You'll find employees often speak their minds openly in certain Slack channels, believing that what they say will never been seen by outside eyes.

However, Disney's have now leaked to O'Keefe who has used it to create a series called "The Disney Files," a series of videos he will use to reveal the internal communications and how horrendous the company's policies actually are.

In the first video, O'Keefe shows that employees used Disney's slack to organize a series of events that the company should have no business organizing, given its main goal of being a family-friendly entertainment company.

As O'Keefe shows, these events include:

* Naked bike rides, including grown naked men riding their bikes in front of children

* Pride nights on Disney property and communities across the country

* Swinger's meet-up groups

* Company workshops on how to change your name as you transition from one sex to another

* LGBT television shows aimed at children, such as one called "Who I'm Meant to Be," which is sponsored and sanctioned by Disney.

Secret Service Girlboss Kim Cheatle: We Didn't Have Anyone On the Obvious Sniper Position on the Roof Because the Roof Had a "Slope" and It Was Too Dangerous to Our Girlbosses to Send Them Up There!

—Disinformation Expert Ace

Kim Cheatle -- who Jill Biden fought to get installed as the Secret Service Girlboss -- told ABC "News" that she decided not to put anyone on the roof, because a Secret Service agent could have fallen and twisted an ankle!

They're not paid to take those kind of extreme risks!

Kyle Becker @kylenabecker

NEW: Secret Service director Kim Cheatle, good friend of Jill Biden and the new face of America's competency crisis, didn't post snipers on the roof where Trump was shot at because it was a sloped roof and she was afraid someone might slip and fall.

You can't make this stuff up.


Charlie Kirk
@charliekirk11

Unbelievable. Secret Service director Kimberly Cheatle now admits that the USSS knew the building 125 yards from President Trump was a huge vulnerability, but didn't station an agent there because it had a "sloped roof."

"That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof. And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside."

This is "safetyism" run amok at its absolute worst.

Cheatle shouldn't be trusted with protecting the food court of a shopping mall, let alone the US president. She should resign or be fired IMMEDIATELY.


The mantra of our age is "It gets worse." It's a cliche. But it's true -- it gets worse.

The Security Expert Kim Cheatle did have three counter-snipers inside the building whose roof the sniper used as an obvious, easy sniper's position.

Inside the building? What a perfect place for counter-snipers whose main ability is to shoot at long distances. You know -- outside.

Perfect, Kim! I'm going to nominate you for a DEI = Death award!

Three law enforcement officers were stationed inside the building where a gunman shot former President Donald Trump at a Pennsylvania rally Saturday.

Two days after the failed assassination attempt, BeaverCountian.com reported that an officer confirmed "there were three counter-snipers" stationed underneath the same roof where the assailant blew off part of President Trump's right ear. Officers notified the "command center" about the threat before the gunman fatally shot a rallygoer and injured three others, including the Republican presidential nominee.

"A Beaver County police officer warned a command center of seeing a man with a rangefinder before former President Donald Trump was shot on Saturday," reported the website. "The officer had also warned the man was scoping out the roof of the building he was stationed in as a counter-sniper, and that the man returned with a backpack before ultimately scaling the building."

According to CBS, law enforcement even took a picture of him before the gunfire.

"Contrary to reports in national news outlets, officers say the building just outside the security perimeter established by Secret Service was in fact occupied by law enforcement," added BeaverCountian.com.

Federalist CEO Sean Davis summed up the situation on X: "Who gave the order to do nothing until after the assassin shot Trump, killed an innocent man on that stage, and fired round after round after round after round?"

Collin Rugg
@CollinRugg

BREAKING: A police counter sn*per team was *inside* the building that Thomas Crooks shot from *during* the sho*ting according to the New York Post.

This just keeps getting more insane.

According to sources who spoke with the Post, Crooks was literally climbing on top of the building where the "watch post" for the sn*pers was located.

"The building, the AGR International Inc. factory in Butler, Pennsylvania, was being used by local police as a "watch post" for sn*pers to scan for threats as the former president spoke onstage only 130 yards away," the Post reported.

Crooks was reportedly spotted at the building 26 minutes before the incident.

But remember, Kim Cheatle had her eyes on the real priority -- protecting her DEI Retard Squad from slipping off a roof with a vicious, widow-maker "slope."

Just look at this slope! I didn't know angles could be that impossibly steep!

viciouslyslopedroof.jpg

Robby Soave @robbysoave

Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle, on why they weren't stationed on the roof where the assassin fired from: "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof."

But... the Secret Service officers who killed the assassin were on a different, sloped roof.

This excuse makes no sense. None whatsoever.

And yet, it gets even worse.

It always gets even worse.

Because Jill Biden's very good friend Kim "Frito Bandito" Cheatle might also be allocating more Secret Service agents to protect Jill Biden at one of her little-attended rallies than the likely next president of the United States:


Susan Crabtree
@susancrabtree

A key Secret Service resources question that lawmakers need to drill down in their investigations is what type of resource allocation did Secret managers provide between Trump's Butler Rally and a nearby Jill Biden dinner in Pittsburg that night:

I'm told that Secret Service managers signed off on only two counter snipers for the Butler rally. The USSS spokesman has yet to dispute this, although he's readily tried to dispute my assertion that resources were diverted from Trump to Jill Biden.

Bear with me for this scenario because it's important:

I just got off the phone with Bill Gage, a senior security consultant with Safe Haven Security Group who was a Secret Service agent under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama and a lead tactical advance agent for multiple national security events. He told me it is not normal operating procedures to have counter snipers at a first lady dinner held inside a building -- not out of the question, but not usual. It would certainly be unusual to have two two-man counter sniper teams (4 counter snipers altogether) at such a dinner.

If we find out that Jill Biden dinner had more counter snipers and/or a lopsided amount of agents assigned to it compared to Trump's outdoor rally (taking into account the usual number allocated for each type of events) that attracted 50,000 people, then we know that the Secret Service is allocating resources based on an outmoded calculus that a sitting president and a first lady automatically should be given more priority/resources than a former president.

"It's a valid question," Gage told me. "If you research and you find that [Jill Biden] had 30 agents and two CS teams at this dinner, and then you have this event that's outdoors, and they only gave, you know, a skeleton crew, that's definitely a question to ask on who made that decision and why. So it's a valid, valid question." It's not merely a numbers game, though.

Of course it would depend on the normal levels of resources provided to each type of event and the threat level -- and I'm sure you could put a lot of bureaucratic spin on that.

It also depends on if there were any specific recent threats to Jill Biden compared to Trump, but some of this is basic commonsense.

Who doesn't think Trump has more threats than Jill Biden on a regular basis?

Doctor President Jill Biden sure does love the trappings of power that come with the non-job of being First Nursemaid to an invalid.


This is so bad that some people are resorting to suggesting a criminal conspiracy was responsible for the nearly-successful assassination attempt.

I don't believe that, for the usual reason. If you told me that one Secret Service agent had conspired with an assassin, I could consider that possibly a plausible theory, because it's certainly possible that one person is a turncoat ready to conspire to murder a president.

But in this case, we have so many Secret Service agents making baffling decisions that you'd pretty much have to speculate that the entire team, including Kim Cheatle, was part of the plot.

As usual: How do you go about recruiting that many people into a plot to murder the president of the United States? Think about the risks you run by merely hinting to someone about such a scheme, in an effort to recruit him.

But Sean Davis thinks it's possible. I report, you decide.



Sean Davis
@seanmdav

Nobody wants to hear this because of the implications, but oh well: Joe Biden's security regime deliberately and with malice aforethought created the conditions that led to an assassin shooting Donald Trump in the head. It is by the grace of God that he lived and our nation is not currently in the midst of a violent civil war.

They deliberately starved Trump's security team of the resources it needed. And they did it repeatedly, over many weeks and months.

With Trump's security detail understaffed, under-resourced, and stretched to its limits, Biden's security regime diverted even more resources to a hastily planned Jill Biden event that just happened to be in the area.

Biden's security regime then ordered the most obvious assassination perch in the entire area to remain outside the main security perimeter.

Furthermore, Biden's Secret Service director ordered law enforcement and counter-snipers OFF the roof that the assassin used.

If that weren't enough, Biden's security regime also refused to block line of sight from the assasssin's perch to Trump's location.

When law enforcement radioed in a suspicious person using a laser range finder at the building and even took photos of him, nothing was done to detain the assassin.

The assassin was so obviously a threat that bystanders at the event begged law enforcement to stop him, but nothing happened.

And even as snipers on the roof near Trump saw a gunman on the roof, Biden's security regime refused to have agents immediately surround Trump and remove him from the stage to protect him from being shot.

Given the lies and nonsense from both Biden's DHS secretary and his Secret Service director, it's increasingly difficult to believe this was a just a series of independent mistakes. In contrast, when you look at the entire picture, what you see better resembles a deliberate plan to make Trump vulnerable but to appear at first glance to be just a couple of innocent mistakes.

And when you add in how little information we've been given about the about the shooter--apparently the only person on earth not on the Internet--you begin to wonder if maybe a group of people at a different three-letter agency might have been working on a parallel track to find and encourage people to take action against Trump at the very same time he was kept vulnerable by Biden's regime.

We know this happens, because the FBI did it with Gretchen Whitmer: it recruited and urged disturbed individuals to buy weapons and put together a plan to kidnap her. In that case, the FBI wanted a story it could use to slime right-wingers. So it created the story itself.

What happens when an agency like that, or maybe even another three-letter agency, decides instead that it's had enough of Trump? Some former FBI employees might even call it an "insurance policy."

So who was the shooter talking to in the hours, days, and weeks ahead of the event? Who was he meeting with? Did anyone suggest or nudge or urge him to go to the Trump rally in Butler? Did anyone suggest or point out to him the building he eventually used? Was he told at any time to not worry about security?

The FBI told us almost immediately that while it couldn't open the assassin's phone, it knew he acted alone. That's kind of strange, when you think about it. They told us almost immediately that they identified him by DNA, despite him having no criminal record. They also said they found explosives in his car. Why didn't they just identify him by his plates or registration or next of kin identification? That's pretty weird, too.

At some point you just have to say enough with the lies. We saw what they did with the Russia hoax. We saw the Kavanaugh hoax. We saw the COVID origin hoax. We saw the Ukraine hoax, the stolen election, the J6 op, and then the armed Mar-a-Lago raid and the myriad illegal cases against Trump.

They called him Hitler. They said he was an existential threat. They said he would destroy democracy. They said he was the most dangerous person on earth.

Then the denied him security. The kept the rooftop open. They watched the shooter and did nothing. They kept Trump on that stage. And they didn't do a damn thing until after he had been shot in the head.

And we're all supposed to believe it was just an innocent oopsie?

I think Sean Davis hasn't quite come to grips with the even-more-horrifying theory that explains this: That DEI and leftist subversion has so polluted and poisoned our most vital institutions that this is now the Secret Service working at their peak possible performance.

But I'm posting his theory anyway. I want the Secret Service to know that if they have another "oopsie," or continue sending more snipers to protect Jill Biden at a small indoor event than to protect the Once and Future President at an outdoor event, murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges are in the offing, and reasonable people like me will vote to convict you of murder even if what we really believe you're guilty of is gross negligence and woke incompetence.

At the very least, we will demand everyone involved be impeached and have all of their pension payments cancelled and zeroed out.

A friend writes that the leftwinger Girlboss's political biases contributed to the failure, on a subliminal level:

Again these people legitimately believe that only the right is a threat, or ever dangerous.


The idea that Trump would be targeted was probably both desirable to them in a sense and in other ways utterly inconceivable. The Left has no problem holding competing ideas at the same time.

Educated Hillbilly has some thoughts:

EducatedHillbilly @RobProvince

No... 125 meters is not a long shot. If you're going to be a shooter that's a free throw. Yes I'm aware a lot of gun owners couldn't hit a 4" plate with 4 tries but I don't care my point stands.

Yes the secret service looked like shit on a stick. Sure they worked hard to get hired. Sure they try. Sure they passed all the tests. Still had a massive failure and looked like hot butter shit and I'm ashamed we as a country look like THAT at a critical moment. And I'm going to rail them harder than Ginger Lynn for that embarrassment of a shit show. And I'm not going to pretend better, bigger more physically qualified people were probably not offered the job for "reasons".

I have eyes.

We are for damn lucky a 20 year old used a garbage rod and choked on mom's spaghetti because the chick in charge of the SS sucks and put the C-team on the biggest target in political history. Only to have body positive diversity hire DUCK OUT OF THE GOD DAMN WAY at the critical moment and then couldn't holster her gun through her fat roll!!! And I'm supposed to be proud of this? I'm supposed to think this was a good and professional operation? This was well planned and organized by the one chick who's one job it is to make sure this doesn't happen?


That's what I'm to accept? That's where we are? That THIS is the best we can do? The best we have? The best protection we can give to the one guy the world all knows is the biggest target in 2024 in politics?

And the after action report we just got was fucking mission accomplished? Really? Everybody in charge just slaps each other on the back, says "good job" and we go back to hoping the next guy uses a Century Arms CETME???


We all make fun of the fat bubbas who can't get to their holster through their gut and thinks he's going to be a super soldier in CW2 The Electric Boogaloo, but I'm supposed to not notice the chicks fupa is maybe an issue in doing her duty as a god damn Secret Service agent?!?

Democrat Senator Bob Menendez Found Guilty of Bribery

—Disinformation Expert Ace

He was only doing what Biden's entire crooked family has been doing for decades.

A Manhattan jury found Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez guilty on all counts in his corruption case on Tuesday.

Menendez, 70, was found guilty of conspiracy to commit bribery and honest services wire fraud.

The case centered on allegations that the senator and his wife Nadine accepted bribes in exchange for acting to benefit the governments in Egypt and Qatar when he was the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The senator, who pleaded not guilty and did not testify, was charged with 16 felony counts including obstruction of justice, bribery, extortion, wire fraud and acting as a foreign agent.

Menendez has refused to resign from the Senate and is now running for reelection, this time as an independent candidate. I don't know if this conviction will force him to drop out.

Obviously a Republican would benefit if he stays in, as Menendez would siphon some votes away from the Democrat. New Jersey is a very corrupt, mobbed-up state. It's the New Orleans of the Northeast. It's nearly as corrupt and mob-controlled as Rhode Island.

Democrat states, of course. They're (touches nose) real good fellas, capiche?

Biden's Puppetmasters Race to Nominate the Vegetable Early, but Congressmen Continue Their Dump Biden Efforts

—Disinformation Expert Ace

Happy Tuesday, everyone! There was so much news yesterday I forgot to greet everyone. Hope you're all doing well.

I'm not. My eyes are burning out of my skull. I think maybe I've been on the computer too much the past week.

The dwindling Biden Wing of the party is planning to nominate Biden "virtually" -- over a Zoom call -- in #twoweeks, well ahead of the actual Democrat National Convention.

They're doing this to stop all talk of replacing Biden with a living person.

The Democratic National Committee is quietly steaming ahead with plans to technically nominate President Biden weeks before the party's convention next month, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: It's the latest effort by Biden's team to stamp out the Democratic rebellion that's been pushing for the president to step aside since his bad performance in the June 27 debate.

Once Biden receives votes from a majority of the nearly 4,000 delegates, it will become exceedingly difficult to remove him from atop the Democratic presidential ticket.

The DNC's current plan is to train state party chairs next week on how to conduct the electronic voting in a secure way. The window for voting is likely to open on July 29 and conclude by Aug. 5, according to people familiar with the matter.

If the working plan for a "virtual roll call" holds, Biden just has to outlast his party's critics for about two more weeks.

For the 81-year-old Biden, time finally may be on his side.

...

What we're hearing: Some delegates are concerned that the DNC is trying to jam them by moving up the voting deadline.

"Behind the scenes, people at the Biden campaign and DNC are working to put in the fix," Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, a Biden delegate from Maryland, wrote to her fellow state delegates last week, according to an email obtained by Axios.

Biden? "Fixing" a vote? PREPOSTEROUS!!!

I've been told that Biden gets elected by the cleanest voting in all of human history!

"Put simply, they are trying to shut down the process earlier. We can't allow it," she wrote. "I am asking you to ask the DNC to stop pushing for an early vote."

...

Meanwhile, Biden and his team are arguing that his nomination is a foregone conclusion.

"I'm the nominee of this party because 14 million Democrats like you voted for me in the primaries," he said Friday in Detroit.


Meantime, the Dump Biden caucus has "resurfaced" after going briefly quiet after their attempted assassination Real President Trump.

Democratic members of Congress are reviving a fight over President Biden's candidacy following a brief respite in the wake of Saturday's assassination attempt against former President Trump, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: Some lawmakers are uneasy about the Democratic National Committee's plans to forge ahead with a virtual roll call vote to nominate Biden weeks before the Democratic convention.

"People are back to being angry at Biden and a push to sign on to this letter is going around ... the 'replace Biden' movement is back," a House Democrat told Axios.

Driving the news: A letter circulating among congressional Democrats argues that there is "no legal justification" for an early virtual roll call after Ohio moved its filing deadline past the date of the Democratic convention.

There was also no legal justification or precedent for mailing out tens of millions of absentee ballots to every name and address in the voting database, knowing that many people were dead and that many of these addresses were former addresses. All of these mail-in ballots were scooped up by vote fraudsters.

And you supported that.

So eat shit, fascist Civilization-Destroyers.

A full copy of the draft letter, details of which were first reported by the New York Times, was obtained by Axios:

Zoom in: Reps. Susan Wild (D-Pa.), a swing-district lawmaker, and Mike Quigley (D-Ill), who has publicly called on Biden to withdraw, told Axios they plan to sign onto the letter.

Another House Democrat with apprehensions about Biden's candidacy told Axios they have received the letter and are considering signing on.
Senior aides to two other House Democrats told Axios their bosses plan to sign on.
Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), who told Biden on a Progressive Caucus call last Saturday that he worries the president is being shielded from bad news, has been circulating the letter to colleagues, according to one lawmaker.

Between the lines: In an interview with Axios, Huffman declined to speak about the letter beyond denying that he personally drafted it, but said the early roll call can "only be for political reasons."

"I just think it's a terrible idea for the DNC to do this, I just think people see right through it, and at a time when we have this huge enthusiasm gap with the Republicans, to do a stunt like this is just going to make it worse," he said.

The Democrats shouldn't worry -- they have Kamala warming up in the bullpen.

Forty Eight Hours After Demanding That Republicans "Lower the Temperature," Biden's Back to Calling Trump an Existential Threat to the Country

—Disinformation Expert Ace

Of course.

According to a report by the New York Post, President Biden's re-election campaign chair, Jen O'Malley Dillon, criticized Donald Trump on Monday, claiming Trump selected Ohio Sen. JD Vance as his running mate because Vance would enable Trump's extreme agenda, even if it meant breaking the law. This fierce attack came just hours after Biden's Oval Office address, where he called for lowering the temperature in political discourse.

In that address, Biden emphasized the need for political calm and unity, stating, "My fellow Americans, I want to speak to you tonight about the need for us to lower the temperature in our politics and to remember, while we may disagree, we are not enemies." This appeal for civility was a stark contrast to the aggressive rhetoric that followed from his campaign.

Biden's renewed attacks on Trump come amid heightened political tensions and a recent assassination attempt on Trump at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania. The gunman, Thomas Matthew Crooks, injured Trump and two other attendees, and tragically killed rallygoer Corey Comperatore. In the days leading up to the attempt, Biden had intensified his rhetoric against Trump, including calling him a "dictator" on Twitter and stating Trump would return to power "over my dead body."

...

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended Biden's recent comments, stating that the president's critiques of Trump focus on policy and leadership issues, not personal attacks. "Violence has no place in America," Jean-Pierre asserted.

They're claiming it's a "policy issue" to claim Trump is a New Hitler who will literally destroy the country if elected.

They're all back to "Assassination Prep" mode, as Mollie Hemingway calls it.

Biden: Trump is "a danger to the country." Temperature Lowered!

Biden again pushes the "very fine people" hoax. After Trump was almost murdered over lies like this. Temperature Lowered!

Ugly bald lunatic Joy Reid: Trump is "the greatest purveyor and promoter of political violence." Forty eight hours after he was shot by a leftist assassin. Temperature lowered!

Joy Reid claims that Trump incited his own assassination. Temperature Lowered!

When asked why he continues calling Trump an "existential threat to the country" even while he claims to want to #LowerTheTemperature, Biden responds that Trump supporters make "F*** Joe Biden" signs. Completely the same! Temperature lowered!

The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

—CBD

punk-monkey.jpg

Perhaps there are a few people who see Donald Trump as a newly sympathetic figure because of Saturday's unsuccessful assassination attempt, but I'll bet the vast majority have their preconceived notions confirmed. Either they are impressed anew at his pugnaciousness and fearlessness in the face of unrelenting attacks, or they see him as a self-promoting blowhard who took advantage (or created) of an almost unique situation.

Neither one of these groups will change their opinions. What I think will happen is that the latter group will be disheartened by his survival, disappointed by his ability to rise to the occasion, and will continue their fight against him, but in a halfhearted and perfunctory manner. The first group will be heartened by his fight, will be angered by the vile and disgusting vitriol emanating from the dark (and not so dark) corners of the left, and will be energized to support Donald Trump....and to vote for him on November 5th.

Will this be enough of a damper on leftist zeal to ruin their effort to get rid of what they hilariously claim as a threat to "democracy?" Will this injection of electoral zeal be enough to make the margin too big for the steal that is undoubtedly being organized?

I think it will be. Much of America will not be pleased by the undercurrent of nastiness about the attempt on Donald Trump's life. Some of them might be lifelong Democrats who wouldn't dream of voting for a Republican, but they also don't like when their side cheerleads for murder. And they certainly will be pleased...secretly or otherwise...by Donald Trump's toughness and unrelenting optimism in the face of a brush with death. They might vote for Joe Biden, but they will have a grudging respect for Trump, and that will work to defuse some of the over-the-top election tactics by the Democrat machine.

And what about Donald Trump's supporters! They will double down on their support for him, and will see the assassination as a cold and calculated culmination of years of dehumanization of Trump and his supporters by the progressive machine. It will push more of them to the polls, because the violence has made it even more clear what the left is willing to do!

Am I romanticizing my view of an America that might very well no longer exist?

Probably.

But I could have concluded the same thing with a much more Machiavellian take on the events and the responses from the two sides.

It is however not debatable that there is a huge enthusiasm gap that has just widened. Take a walk this afternoon and ask around. How much excitement will you detect among Democrats? In fact, aside from the drooling idiots on the internet, can you find anyone who is enthusiastic about a Biden election victory?

And perhaps most important, the contrast between the two candidates has been illuminated. Joe Biden is decrepit, feeble, stumbles over words, does not (and perhaps never could) handle challenge without anger, and exudes weakness. Donald Trump exudes strength, power, and vitality in a way that communicates his resolve.

The end result will be an improvement in Donald Trump's chances for return to the White House, and frankly, I don't care why it happens.

The Morning Report — 7/16/24

—J.J. Sefton

Good Morning Kids. Barely 48 hours after surviving an assassination attempt by not even an inch, and while still in the midst of nearly a decade of character assassination and political persecution by a corrupted government and criminal justice system, that despite a major setback in the tossing of the Jack Smith documents case (and perhaps the spurious J-6 case on the ropes), there can be no doubt as to the character of Donald Trump.

For sure the phrase, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger is in full effect here. Make no mistake the forces of evil will not rest because Trump is a mortal threat to their power and influence, and desire to fundamentally destroy America as founded.

And yet, he's still there, more energized and engaged than ever, as he entered the arena at the RNC in Milwaukee last night.

Trump strolled onto the convention floor as Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” blared in the background.

The former president pumped his fist, gave several thumbs up and clapped as he joined his running mate, Sen. JD Vance (R-Ohio), and members of his family seated near the stage.

“Fight, fight, fight” the crowd chanted as Trump took his seat, a reference to the words mouthed by the former president on Saturday, moments after he was shot during a rally in Butler, Pa.

Trump listened intently as “Every Day Americans” Mark Laws and Benjamin Josephs delivered RNC speeches. 

He also watched Amber Rose — a former stripper who has fiercely criticized Donald Trump in the past — give her remarks.

“He’s one tough SOB,” International Brotherhood of Teamsters union President Sean O’Brien said of Trump, during his remarks, as the GOP nominee listed on. Trump did not deliver remarks Monday night. 

Earlier in the day, he was officially named the Republican nominee for president  after being nominated by more than 1,215 GOP delegates during a roll call vote of state delegations. 

Shortly before the vote, Trump announced on Truth Social that he had tapped Vance as his VP pick. 

The estimable Miranda Devine notes:

Eight years ago, when Vance wrote the hit 2016 memoir Hillbilly Elegy documenting his hardscrabble life growing up in Rustbelt USA, he was seen as the key to understanding Trump’s appeal to a new working class base. A rabid Never-Trumper at the time, his remarkable road to Damascus conversion to MAGA hero, is the theme Trump is embracing this week.
The first night’s speakers embodied the invitation Trump is extending to prodigal sons and daughters across the country to join him in the new America First Republican Party he has forged. Democrats, independents, Never-Trumpers, all are welcome into his big hopeful tent.
With the former president watching on, Amber Rose, a former Trump-deranged Only Fan model took the stage and declared her new love for him.
“I believed the left wing propaganda that Donald Trump was racist. But after she “looked into all things Donald Trump” she said she realized “These are my people, this is where I belong… and I put the red hat on too.”
If it hadn’t been past Joe Biden’s bedtime, the night would have had the self-described “most pro-union president” gnashing his teeth.
In a stunning rebuke to President Biden, Sean O’Brien, President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, gave the keynote address on behalf of his 1.3 million members. 
“Something is wrong with this country and we need to say it out loud,” he said imploring his “ friends on the Democratic side to embrace collaboration… Working people know our system is broken… There is a political caste system… Inflation is hurting working Americans. 
“This has got to change.”
He didn’t quite endorse Trump but his mere presence was an ominous message to the Democrats.

Who knows whether Trump’s open door approach will lure enough Democrats and undecideds in November to give him the landslide election he craves, but he’s giving it a red hot go.
The crowd responded by chanting “We Love Trump.”


They also greeted Mitch Mc-Chicom McConnell with a deluge of boos and catcalls.

So, J.D. Vance. I suppose he could've picked much much worse, but could he have done much better or even marginally better?

Zack Beauchamp is thus not just a doctrinaire leftist; he’s an exceptionally dim bulb. If he thinks you’re smart, you can probably beat the average second grader in a tough game of tic-tac–toe, or parrot the leftist dogmas Beauchamp loves so deeply, albeit ineptly. So Trump’s pick looks disquieting, except that Beauchamp goes on to say that Vance’s “worldview is fundamentally incompatible with the basic principles of American democracy.” When leftists start prattling on about “democracy,” or more commonly, “our democracy,” they mean their own hegemony and dominance of the American public square. If Vance threatens that, Trump has made a good choice after all.
Beauchamp then treats us to a scare paragraph about just what a black-hearted villain Vance really is:
Vance has said that, had he been vice president in 2020, he would have carried out Trump’s scheme for the vice president to overturn the election results. He has fundraised for January 6 rioters. He once called on the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into a Washington Post columnist who penned a critical piece about Trump. After last week’s assassination attempt on Trump, he attempted to whitewash his radicalism by blaming the shooting on Democrats’ rhetoric about democracy without an iota of evidence.. . . Beauchamp also hates Vance for blaming a leftist’s attempt to murder Trump on the left’s overheated and hysterical rhetoric about the Republican candidate. Vance, you see, is just trying to “whitewash his radicalism.” Never mind all the leftists who have for years now been calling openly for Trump to be killed. In Zack Beauchamp’s tiny Marxist world, they don’t exist.
And so Zack Beauchamp has, in sum, penned a long-form campaign ad for J.D. Vance, and Vox is happily featuring it atop all of its hard-left agitprop. It’s the best testimonial the vice presidential candidate could have wished for.

So, dear friends, given the fact that our systems and society have been damaged and corrupted to such an extent that we are perhaps closer than we've been in nearly 200 years to coming apart at the seams, what does a VP pick really mean in the grand scheme of things, let alone elections?

And yet, there is dissatisfaction from all quarters at the status quo, and if there can be leaders who can make the scales fall from eyes, then that's where we begin and what we have to build on to move forward.
There was one interesting anecdote from yesterday that perhaps gives us a little cause for hope, and I'll take anything at this point.

Tim Robbins once personified the Hollywood Left. The “Bull Durham” star was everywhere during President George W. Bush’s presidency, decrying the Iraq War and attacks on free speech. He hasn’t been as active, or vocal, in recent years. He changed that at the tail end of the pandemic, speaking out against vaccine mandates and the hyper-political climate that turned American against American. That wisdom, regardless of political party, reared up at the best time over the weekend. To anyone drawing a parallel between my film Bob Roberts and the attempted assassination of Trump, let’s be clear. What happened yesterday was a real attempt on a presidential candidate’s life. Those that are denying the assassination attempt was real are truly in a deranged mindset. A human being was shot yesterday. Another killed. They may not be human beings that you agree with politically but for shame folks. Get over your blind hatred of these people. They are fellow Americans. This collective hatred is killing our souls and consuming whatever is left of our humanity.

Considering that far too many of his fellow travelers are still baying for Trump's and our blood, I will take this as a positive sign. Now, let's build on it if we can, however we can?

Have a good day.

Democrats End Their Campaign to Boot Biden From the Ticket -- and Admit They're Now "Resigned" to the Inevitability of a Trump Restoration
Biden Doubles Down on "Threat to Our Democracy" Rhetoric

—Disinformation Expert Ace

As I predicted -- unfortunately, I didn't predict it here, I predicted it in an offline conversation on Saturday night -- the failed assassination of attempt didn't just have the effect of improving Trump's standing and making him appear to be an unstoppable force of nature (and possibly with Divine Providence on his side).

The failed assassination also had another great effect for Trump: It deprives the "Dump Biden" story of oxygen and urgency, therefore sealing the Democrats' fate as Biden will now be, absent a major medical event, the Democrats' doomed candidate in November.

Axios: The campaign to boot Biden has faded, and Democrats are now resigned to the inevitability of a second Trump presidency.

Congressional Democrats' all-consuming angst over President Biden's candidacy has taken an abrupt backseat in lawmakers' minds in the wake of an assassination attempt against former President Trump.

Why it matters: Democratic lawmakers say their immediate focus is on their personal security and that of their staffs, not on their party's political woes, helping to allow a crucial cooldown period for the embattled president.

"We're all just focused on expressing condolences ... and keeping our teams safe," said one House Democrat who has been fiercely critical of Biden.

A senior House Democrat suggested the post shooting atmosphere in the party is too "chaotic" for internal battles over leadership.

...


What we're hearing: A second senior House Democrat told Axios that the Trump shooting has taken some of the heat off because it would "be bad form to make any statements against President Biden."

Another Biden-skeptical Democrat, asked about lingering questions around the president's candidacy, told Axios: "I don't think that's the focus right now."

What to watch: Most lawmakers who spoke to Axios said it is too early to say whether the cessation in tensions will last until the Democratic National Convention next month.

But the second senior House Democrat offered one reason for why it might: "We've all resigned ourselves to a second Trump presidency."

The story discusses a "disastrous" call Biden had with Democrat House members on Saturday afternoon, before the Democrat-Media Party's assassin tried vainly to kill President Trump.

The assassin didn't kill Trump, but he did kill this story, which would be a huge story if he hadn't intervened in history:

As part of an effort to stop the flow of statements urging him to end his reelection bid, Biden met Saturday afternoon with the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the center-left New Democrat Coalition.

The latter call was described by lawmakers present as "tense" and a "disaster" for the president, who, they said, was combative in the face of questions about how he plans to turn around his flagging campaign.

That call came after Biden was told by Rep. Mike Levin (D-Calif.) during a call with Hispanic Caucus members that he should drop out of the race.


Meanwhile:


From last week: Ezra Klein admitted on another pointless "Bulwark" podcast that behind the scenes, Democrats do not believe Trump is Hitler or a dictator in waiting -- they're just cynically claiming this for political reasons (and to encourage their assassins to take care of him).

12 Women Come Forward Alleging They Were Sexually Assaulted By Whoever Trump's VP Pick Is

A new wave of controversy erupted as 12 women came forward alleging they had been sexually assaulted by whoever Trump's vice presidential pick would end up being.

The damning allegations began to come in despite the fact that Trump has yet to officially name a running mate or even disclose whether the pick is a man or a woman. Sources confirmed at least a dozen highly credible accusers emerged to demand justice against whoever the VP candidate might be.

"Whoever the VP pick is, I am here to tell my story of how I was inappropriately touched by them," claimed one accuser. "As soon as Trump sees fit to announce who his running mate is, I'm going to positively identify him... or her. Whatever. No matter who he picks, they aren't going to get away with what they did. They must be held accountable!"

Educators know what's at stake this election for our students and for our country. Trump’s pick of JD Vance is just another MAGA extremist supporting Project 2025 and Betsy DeVos's agenda. The choice is clear: NEA members are committed to reelecting President Biden and VP Harris.
Fact: Trump moved his head, and thereby avoided the fatal bullet, to point to his Jumbotron screen
Conclusion: Trump's Jumbotron did a better job of protecting him than the Secret Service. Should we make Jumbotron head of the Secret Service? #DEIforJumbotron #DontBeAScreen-Hater
Leftwingers upset that JD Vance has attacked the "childless left" and "childless cat ladies"
I mean, he is right. Many women have a drive to mother others, and if they don't have children, they focus that displaced Big Mother Energy on mothering adults and complete strangers and people with no need of their dubious maternal wisdom, and the rest of us are pretty sick of it
From commenters: Doug Burnum told he is not the VP. Marco Rubio as well.
Someone posted that the oddsmakers have increased the odds that Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin is the pick.
The case for Youngkin over Vance: I prefer Vance, but Youngkin is governor of Virginia, and Virginia is a swing state whereas Ohio is not (and hasn't been for years). If you take Virginia from Biden, it's over. I think it's already over and you don't have to scheme to take Virginia, but the old idea that you pick a governor to swing a state would suggest Youngkin is the better candidate.
This is a terrible, terrible idea, obviously:
Benny Johnson @bennyjohnson
I have just heard from a TOP Source that RFK Jr. is in Milwaukee meeting with Trump right now on the Vice Presidency. Trump has yet to decide his VP.

Trump is ahead, he does not need to pick a lunatic leftwinger to win. Let's not forget that Trump is himself 78, and overweight-- and he has assassins gunning for him. The Vice President may well become President (unfortunately).
I don't believe this claim.
