The Morning Report 12/6/17

Good morning kids. The middle of the week is upon us and the top story for today will be President Trump's announcement later today that he intends on starting the process of moving our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, thus officially recognizing that city as Israel's capital. I will not go into the religious and historic significance of Jerusalem to Judaism, but suffice it to say that the city itself has been a pillar of Jewish identity since time immemorial. From a political standpoint, I will only paraphrase a rather salient comment made by Nevergiveup; since the city is more or less divided between Israel and the Palestinian authority, at least half of that city is (ingenuously or not) regarded as Israeli territory, so moving our embassy there should cause zero controversy. But as we all know, since the goal of both adherents to Islam and its evil twin Leftism is to wipe Israel off the map, this cannot stand. Before Israel liberated the city in the 1967 Six Day War, Jews were forbidden from entering and holy sites including the graves of ancient Jewish forefathers were desecrated - a pattern that still exists throughout the Muslim world today and is gradually taking hold in Europe. It should be noted that since 1967, Muslim and Christian holy sites in the city have been preserved and protected by Israel and, as mentioned,Palestinians use their neighborhoods within the city as well as the West Bank as a base from which to kill Israeli citizens and oppress their own people. But that is par for the course. If the Muslim world and their slaves/pawns/cannon fodder in the Palestinian movement really wanted peace with Israel, there would be no reaction from their side at all. As a note to Jared Kushner and others in the "peace process" scam, the only two state solution the Palestinians and the Left are interested in is one Palestinian State in place of Israel, and a "final solution" to the Jews.


In short, bravo Mr. President. You have done the right thing, kept a promise and at the same time given a proverbial boot to the groin of Joo-haters of all stripes the world over (Obama *cough* Obama). In related news, the House also passed a resolution cutting off funding to the Palestinian Authority for continuing to financially support and praise terrorists and terrorists attacks from the areas they control. Hope it sails through the Senate just as swiftly so the President can sign it into law. It would be the perfect underscore to moving our embassy.

Back here at home, the Insurrection against PDT continues to dominate the headlines. Little by little the abject phoniness and corruption embodied in Robert Mueller is being exposed for all the world to see. While this shitshow should never have been allowed to get rolling in the first place (you awake, Beauregard?), once it did get going there should have been very tight constraints and guidelines placed upon it. Again, that never happened. I have always been hot and horny to fire Mueller and shut this all down. But the optics of it would have been sub-optimal for the President. And now, as all the corruption of Strzok, Weissmann, Comey and Mueller himself is being revealed, it might be best for the President to just sit back and let them hoist themselves on their own petards. Yeah, I know, nothing will happen to them although in a just and sane world, they'd be thrown into PMITA prison for the rest of their miserable existences. Some have postulated that perhaps Mueller, in now openly shifting from collusion to impeachment, is actually goading PDT into firing him just so that the meme can be generated that Trump is trying to cover up his crimes and that he really is illegitimate. Maybe letting him continue to expose himself is not such a bad strategy.

As mentioned yesterday, the gay wedding cake case in SCOTUS will probably yet again be decided upon by that great legal mind Anthony Kennedy. And we all know what that means. There's an interesting piece at American Thinker that actually presents the argument that Kennedy's insane ruling forcing gay marriage on the entire nation might act in the baker's favor.

Lastly, Steve Bannon headlined a large rally in Alabama for Judge Roy Moore. No doubt he will face a lot of heat in the Senate if he does indeed win, as the tea leaves indicate he will. But he has a number of colleagues as well as a President and a base that will have his back. Remember, when he won the runoff way back a million years ago at the end of the summer, one of his campaign promises was leading the charge to oust Mitch McYertle. Go Moore!

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.
