The Morning Report 7/19/18

Good morning kids. Thursday is here and of course it's never a slow day for your intrepid reporter so lez-be on our way. First up is of course the continued fall out from the Trump-Putin Helsinki summit. On the periphery some are crowing about the president supposedly walking back his comments about our intelligence community but, as evidenced from the link, he justifiably pulls no punches in his criticism of Brennan, Clapper, Comey et al. As stated yesterday, all of the reactions from the Dem-Left-Media complex and the smart-set elite Coup-Cucks-Clan in the New Deal wing of the GOP is all pre-chewed meat; canned outrage to be used as yet another pretext to throw him out of office, give the Dems Congress in November and derail his agenda. Funny how the Brett Kavanaugh nomination has all but disappeared from the headlines, but I guarantee you it will not be long before the President's "treasonous" behavior in Helsinki will be the pretext by which America must live up to its values and promise and reject that nomination, as well as every subsequent nomination going forward. Remember, "that's not who we are!" (*pukes*). Speaking of which, in a not unrelated link, the President's nominee to take over at the CFPB politburo is being grilled, not on her experience and acumen in matters relating to banking and lending but on immigration and Puerto Rico. Jeez, who let Occasional-Cortex into the room (more on her later)? But I digress.

Everyone's also going crazy because the President is talking about letting Russia interrogate persons linked to longtime Putin foe and critic Bill Browder. Browder you may (or may not) recall investigated and uncovered all kinds of corruption with Putin, and one of his allies, attorney Sergey Magnitsky was imprisoned for 11 months and ultimately died in custody. And that led to what is known as the Magnitsky Act intended to punish Putin for human rights violations that led to the act's namesake's death. I believe that that is a non-starter, although it might be nice to have Peter Strzok take a little involuntary fact-finding mission to the Lubyanka which doubtless would greatly improve his attitude and mien. But I digress yet again.

At the risk of being repetitive from yesterday's commentary, say what you will about PDT's manner or the way he speaks, but his actions speak louder than his words on Russia and on every other damn thing since he rode down that escalator nearly three years ago. And I went into an entire litany of the Democrat-Left-Media Complex's alliance with the Soviet Union and indeed every other country, regime and ideology that would lay America low and bring them to power. And since everyone of that bent is suddenly rushing like made to replace their Che t-shirts with the image of Tail Gunner Joe and hurling the word "treason" at our President, let's take a little trip down memory lane and throw a spotlight on one of their heroes - and someone who can arguably be labeled the most destructive American citizen in our history: Edward M. Kennedy.

In 1983, during the height of the Cold War, Teddy Kennedy, a sitting United States Senator, secretly went to Moscow to collude, in every real sense of that word, with them to undermine President Reagan's SDI initiative before the 1984 elections. Here's an excerpt from the link, with a quote from Paul Kengor, interviewed by Jamie Glazov in 2008 (what a year that was, in context).

According to (KGB Chief) Chebrikov, Kennedy was deeply troubled by the deteriorating relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union, which he believed was bringing us perilously close to nuclear confrontation. Kennedy, according to Chebrikov, blamed this situation not on the Soviet leadership but on the American president---Ronald Reagan. Not only was the USSR not to blame, but, said Chebrikov, Kennedy was, quite the contrary, "very impressed" with Andropov.

The thrust of the letter is that Reagan had to be stopped, meaning his alleged aggressive defense policies, which then ranged from the Pershing IIs to the MX to SDI, and even his re-election bid, needed to be stopped. It was Ronald Reagan who was the hindrance to peace. That view of Reagan is consistent with things that Kennedy said and wrote at the time, including articles in sources like Rolling Stone (March 1984) and in a speeches like his March 24, 1983 remarks on the Senate floor the day after Reagan's SDI speech, which he lambasted as "misleading Red-Scare tactics and reckless Star Wars schemes."

Even more interesting than Kennedy's diagnosis was the prescription: According to Chebrikov, Kennedy suggested a number of PR moves to help the Soviets in terms of their public image with the American public. He reportedly believed that the Soviet problem was a communication problem, resulting from an inability to counter Reagan's (not the USSR's) "propaganda." If only Americans could get through Reagan's smokescreen and hear the Soviets' peaceful intentions.

So, there was a plan, or at least a suggested plan, to hook up Andropov and other senior apparatchiks with the American media, where they could better present their message and make their case. Specifically, the names of Walter Cronkite and Barbara Walters are mentioned in the document. Also, Kennedy himself would travel to Moscow to meet with the dictator.

Time was of the essence, since Reagan, as the document privately acknowledged, was flying high en route to easy re-election in 1984.

You may also recall that Kennedy was the chief sponsor of the 1965 Hart-Celler Act which destroyed our orderly, legal immigration and naturalization process and flooded America with millions of illiterate, uneducated, third world indigents who had no interest really in assimilating but eagerly took everything and more Uncle Sugar could throw at them. All in exchange for forever more being loyal Democrat voters. And this is a major factor 50 years later in the dissolution of American identity and culture that we are witnessing and desperately fighting to this day.

Back to Ted Kennedy's actual dictionary-definition TREASON with the Soviets in 1983, when I read that article my blood was boiling. And these bastards have the f***ing unmitigated temerity to use the word "treason" agains this President?! The rest of my thoughts are redacted. In any case for the reasons sighted alone, let alone murdering Mary Jo Kopechne, I hope and pray that Teddy Kennedy is roasting in Hell.

In other news, on the immigration scene, Keith Ellison reveals the truth about the Dems, the Abolish Ice fiasco shows the Dems' true colors, if that were to happen blood would be running in the streets, immigration is the number one issue in a new Gallup Poll (stopping it for us, open borders for the terrorists), and VDH has a great take, as ever, on immigration and the grand plan of the Left.

On the political scene, the Democrat internal struggle with itself boils over as Joe-mentum Lieberman stumps for Crowley and the party establishment want to maintain control from the hardcore Maosits while Dem-Socialite Occasional-Cortex blasts those who call her anti-semitic as filthy Joo-occupiers, the Calexit bill gets roadblocked, and Fauxcahontas is trying to ram through a horrible casino deal so she can show off her high cheekbones and landlocked crab salad. Farbissiner goniff, that one.

On the international scene, PDT directly confronts Erdogan about a US priest being held hostage by the Turks, Nikki Haley slams the UN Human Rights Council and FBI Director Wray calls out the Chi-Coms as the greatest espionage threat here at home. Lastly, Denmark opens its eyes too late vis a vis the flood of "immigrants."

Interesting domestic news items, Maine governor LePage has vetoed a bill that bans gay-to-normal conversion counseling, a challenge to Texas fetal burial law could be a harbinger of a Roe v Wade battle at SCOTUS and the Janus ruling could really open the floodgates in kneecapping union political power.

Free speech news with the Facebook hearings, IBD not thrilled with the EU's Google fine, and in the UK muzzling the Muslim angle with Tommy Robinson and Rotherham.

From hither and yon, Dennis Rodman looks to take Kanye West to North Korea, comparing Lincoln and PDT and an SJW gets eaten by the tiger.

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