The Morning Report 7/23/18

FISAs.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a new week and two stories are in the lead this morning. First we have the completely unsurprising yet utterly enraging revelation - confirmation really - that our intelligence and law enforcement leadership, minimally at the behest of or the approval of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, abused their power to obtain a FISA warrant to bug the campaign of then candidate and now President Trump, with the intention of destroying either or both. The entire raison d'etre for the warrant was based off of a phony dossier concocted by a toxic mix of British and American spies and an opposition research organization, bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign. And all of that resulted in the completely illegal and now thoroughly out of control Mueller investigation.

I think that about puts the pieces of the puzzle into one concise (as I can make it) paragraph. And now one can understand the rationale, such as it is, of the rabid cries of "treason!" from the Democrat-Media Complex and their willing shills in the Coup-Cucks-Clan-Krystal-Kruise-Kadre. Especially in the wake of the Trump-Putin Summit. But like everything else, as they crank the outrage up to eleventy-leven in a desperate attempt to oust Trump, both for the sake of his ouster and to conceal the truth of who the real criminals are - Obama, Clinton, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Lynch et al - the more they succeed in galvanizing the President's support among his base, gain new supporters even from heretofore unthinkable quarters, and steel his resolve and readiness to fire back twice as hard at the slings, arrows and feces flung in his direction.

The tragic, and frightening, truth is that the President and by extension the citizenry can no longer trust at a minimum the leadership within our national security and national law enforcement agencies and apparatuses. G-d forbid the rot is lower than the top tier or so of leadership and at field level (I fear it is). Post 9/11, we put in place laws, systems and bureaucrats/bureaucracies that were Constitutionally dubious at best, yet sold as necessary for the defense of the realm, among them the FISA courts. It is now painfully evident, that these weapons have been turned on ourselves and used by some incredibly horrible actors to subvert the rule of law, sabotage a political campaign and failing that overthrow a duly elected president and in essence terrorize the citizenry.

Lots of links breaking down all the details that I glossed over as well as cromulent commentary from the usual bevy of excellent authors. As I have asked many times over the past 18 months, how do President Trump and the citizenry fight a corrupt, entrenched and now feral bureaucracy with the laws, systems and agencies that are now revealed to be the source of the criminality and corruption he and we seek to eradicate? Answer that one and win a cookie.

Moving along to our second hot topic, the situation in Iran is heating up. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered an address over the weekend at the Reagan Presidential Library that experts see as announcing administration policy going forward, vis a vis the regime and the unrest in country. To wit, throwing support behind the oppressed citizenry in their bid to oust the mullahs. This prompted Hassan Rouhani, the so-called "moderate" to Tweet out a threat at the US to which the President responded a la Ben Roethelisberger (the moron, not the QB):

"NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE... WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!"

Either on Friday or Saturday, I noticed somewhere that supposedly Rouhani made an off-handed remark about dialogue with the US. That is something that got glossed over but to me it implies serious things happening. With the trashing of the Obama Nuke sellout and the imposition of real sanctions on the regime and their Eurabian eunuchs, the Iranian economy is circling the drain, and this time the people actually have a real shot at liberation. Especially if the Saudis can ramp up oil production, along with our own domestic drilling. And perhaps what PDT and Putin discussed behind closed doors looms large. Stay tuned...

Closer to home, the Democrats internal identity crisis/civil war between the Trotskyites and Stalinists are going to lead them onto a shining path (SWIDT?) to total obliteration come November. Reverend Ike Comey is pleading with the Dems to dump the Socialist cray-cray talk and that'll go over well with a base thats too stupid to see he was trying to help Hillary, Camera Hogg is pleading with people to ignore #WalkAway and hand over your guns, Democrat-Soclaiite Occasional-Cortex is not going to help Claire McAsskill win in Missouri, Chubby Gillibrand is all in for open borders and gun confiscation once the Democrats take both houses in November, and Steve "Purple Drank-Heart" Cohen is worried for Blacks and Jews if the Dems lose (worried, like with nooses and stars of David?). What they don't see is that everything they believe in as crucial is exactly the opposite of what concerns the voters. But hey, they can crank up the Israel-bashing. That's a winner of an issue (/sarc).

Domestically in blue shit-hole news, Chicago's infested with rats, DeBolshevik hates corporations except the ones that line his pockets, Charlotte will host the 2020 GOP convention but it too has got issues, Baltimore just filed its own anti-oil luddite lawsuit despite others ignominiously being shot down in flames, and though feces in the streets is unavoidable, the Bay Area dodged a mass terror attack.

From hither and yon, former Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten, now John Lydon, joins the fight against the lying propaganda media, an interesting piece about golden age commies and artists and lastly a sobering piece about the Left's attempt to erase the past. Goes well with CBD's sidebar link to the 1984 interview with KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov.

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