The Morning Report 12/13/17

AlObama.jpg

Good morning kids. I'm old enough, and by now should be wise enough, to understand what happened yesterday in Alabama, and yet I'm still shocked and sickened. I suppose that is the normal reaction if we were living in anything resembling normal times; obviously we're not. A Senate seat in what is arguably a solid red state has been "stolen" and made Democrat. The word stolen has multiple meanings in this context and I think virtually all of them are correct (pending the whereabouts of Al Franken's Buick LeSabre, fraud will not be considered - yet).

Let's face it; electoral politics as we have known it is gone. If we didn't realize that certainly by last November, we never would have. The election of Donald Trump has thoroughly exposed the corruption, criminality and rot that is our government, media and culture. They will not allow that to stand. I can't say whether we would have witnessed the spectacle of the last few months had the candidate been Luther Strange or Mo Brooks. But, idiosyncrasies or not, Roy Moore is a lightning rod and even worse, a staunch supporter of the President and avowed enemy of Mitch McConnell and the Establishment. And so yesterday is just another indication that we are in a war between those who want to subjugate this country and citizenry, and the rest of us who want to somehow try to save it and our posterity from extinction. Yes, our enemies will crow, strut and preen about the significance of this "victory" as proof positive of the repudiation of the President and the first step towards his downfall. To which I say "go to Hell."

From a practical standpoint, Moore is not conceding and in all likelihood will demand a recount. Slim as the margin seems to be as of this writing, I have my doubts that he can overcome it. McTraitor also is saying that Doug Jones won't be seated until next year, so he will not be voting on legislation, most crucially the Tax Reform bill, and whatever else may be up for a vote between now and then. On the plus side, he's only there until 2020 but on the downside, losing that seat to a hardcore Leftist leaves only a wafer-thin majority in the Senate. And of course with Republicans like Collins, Murkowski, Alexander and too many others, well, you get the picture. And speaking of raw sewage, Richard Shelby.

Predictable: Steve Bannon (PBUH) is being attacked and mocked for causing Moore to lose the election. And yet the same momzers dumping on Bannon are the ones who not only refused to support or defend Roy Moore but actively participated in his defeat. The chutzpah is just beyond belief.

Prediction: Gloria Allred and her clients who accused Roy Moore will completely disappear from the news cycle within a day or so. Allred though will no doubt be back as what yesterday was is the opening salvo in the new/old strategy of Mish-Grabber-Gate 2.0. We can see that the Russian collusion angle has failed and the Mueller probe is going to go the same route with the revelations about Strzok, McCabe, Rosenstein and probably Adam Schiff. Oh, hell yes. It's a war people. It's a goddam long, bloody war and there will be pain inflicted on us. Let us steel ourselves and move forward.

In other news, Minnesota's governor Mark Dayton is supposed to name a replacement for Al Franken's senate seat. All well and good except Franken has not officially quit. Meh, with Moore losing Alabama, he has no excuse to stick around. And speaking of rape, New York restaurateur Ken Friedman allegedly has a rape room in an eatery that he co-owns with entertainer and former crack dealer Jay-Z. Were I not so utterly disgusted about the election, I'd have something snarky.

Lastly, J. Christian Adams talks about what's been going on at the DoJ aside from the somnambulant proclivities of its director. As I've said before, unless Sessionzzzzz personally leads the Clintons, Obama and Soros in leg irons to the paddy wagon, I can't think of a better replacement than Adams to run that agency.

Chin up people. Happy Hanukkah and eat some latkes.

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