The Morning Report - 10/10/18


Good morning kids. Midweek and before we delve into today's links there's a category 4 hurricane in the Gulf that's bearing down on the Florida Panhandle. Prepare as best you can and get the hell out of the area as soon as possible. Stay safe.

Leading off, in the aftermath of the attempted character assassination of now Justice Kavanaugh, we are witnessing a ramping up of the already unhinged rhetoric and physical violence, 100% of which is coming from the Democrat-Left-Media complex, academia and other quarters. While it is individuals such as the Dick Durbin-linked would-be mass assassin James Hodgkinson who are responsible for their actions, it is the manifestly criminally irresponsible rhetoric from the aforementioned party's and movement's most visible leaders that is driving this nation towards disaster. The internecine struggle between the old guard Trotskyites such as Clinton, Schemer and Palsi and the bust-out Maoists like Sandersnista and Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco might be fueling some of this as the former is trying to outdo the latter to hold on to the base. The salient point is the election of President Trump, and all the political and cultural shifts that paved the way for it, are seen by them as a mortal threat to the 100+ year, multi-generational "long march," if you will, to overthrow America as founded and "fundamentally transform" it into something else. Nearly 2 years in to the Trump presidency, the Left has exhausted all of their notionally non-violent yet completely outrageous and illegal efforts to overthrow him or at a minimum to derail his agenda. The nomination and now seating of Brett Kavanaugh I think was a watershed moment. For its part, the GOP most unexpectedly not only stood its ground but grew a spine, fought back and won a not insignificant victory in myriad ways. The only thing really that remains is physical intimidation and outright violence. With the midterms, at least from my perspective, looking more and more doubtful for the Dems, the reaction if they lose yet another election that has been pimped for over a year as "blue wave" is going to be ugly. Or worse. Rush Limbaugh did an extensive segment on an essay from author David Bahnsen, and this quote from his piece (linked below) sums it up rather succinctly:

...The left does not wish to co-exist with the right in this country; they wish to extinguish them. They do not value the liberal order of society, or they would never say something so illiberal as "believe all women." What we are living through right now is an unprecedented level of hate, dishonesty, distrust, and mistreatment. A strong disdain for the ideology of conservatism, of social norms, of Constitutional government, of western civilization - is what it is. But that ideological divide is no longer a merely ideological divide. It really never has been. That transition from worldview to actionable behavior has accelerated faster than I or any humanistic critic could have ever anticipated. And what it means for our national politics and the culture at-large is frightening...

Ace and the Cobs have done yeoman's work hitting all the angles of potential national dissolution hard in the last few weeks or more as have you commenters really since the Obama reign-of-error. Sadly, I'm sure it all will continue to come fast and furious, so to speak, in the run up to the Midterms and beyond. G-d help us.

And as Justice Kavanaugh heard arguments and asked questions on his first day in court, the President was on the campaign trail and at yet another jam-packed rally, the crowd started chanting "lock her up!" but this time it was in reaction to the President mentioning Fein-China Di-Fi. And as if on cue Hillary said that there are big differences between the allegations against Justice Kavanaugh and her husband (how right she is!), Chuck Grassley said the Dems were going try and smear Kavanaugh even as the confirmation votes were about to be cast and some good analysis of what lessons the GOP must learn going forward and Rabbi Dov Fischer on what effect all of this will have on the new justice's future decisions. Meanwhile, a big Arizona Dem donor is being charged with felony sex abuse. But still they persist... mostly in being silent about one of their own.

In First Amendment and Fakery news, Breitbart has an exclusive on a leaked Google memo where execs openly admit to censorship, a Google exec thinks the Kavanaugh confirmation means we should abolish the Senate (you got your 17th amendment and it still didn't help, doofus), Gallup's new poll has the media and politicians in the toilet with the public, an NBC "reporter" doesn't get the response he thought he would from millennials, and a good piece about how the NY Times used love the President's father, until...

On to politics where PDT warns about the consequence of electing Dems, things are looking up for GOP House candidates in Ohio, SCOTUS ruling spells trouble for Heitkamp, Sheldon Whorehouse gets gassed in a debate, NY Dem Dov Hiking not thrilled with Chubby Jello-Brain embracing the Hamas Louse, Krysten Sinema is a disgrace, Brian Schatz is desperate for youth votes, Rush reads between the lines of a Politico story meant to depress GOP voters, Teamster bosses do a bad end zone dance in PA, and a now ex Never-Trumper has seen the light.

In Amnesty and Immigration, PDT calls Dem immigration policy "lethal," Kevin McCarthy is introducing a border wall funding bill, Paul Ryno is a chutzpadik momzer, Corey Stewart draws heat in VA for a pro-ICE rally and another future Democrat illegal alien is sentenced for kiddie porn.

Hey, guess who's back; it's Shaved Guevara whoring for some camera time and belching up drivel, and Wells Fargo is bucking the other big banks and giving Ruger a big loan.

Domestically, McConnell is being urged to go 24/7 to ram through nominees and two have finally been confirmed as assistant A'sG, IBD say nix to ethanol subsidies (meh, we need Grassley happy), they also identify what is obvious about where the shit-holes are in the US and who runs them, the administration is gunning for Chicago's PD consent decree, and the case for breaking up Amazon.

Internationally, in the wake of Nikki Haley's announcement that she's ankling her slot at the UN we look at possible replacements, is the administration caving on Iran oil exports, Stephen Harper sez the US made out well on USMCA, the Saudis might have executed that dissident, and Thailand's military junta loves free elections... as long as they win them.

From hither and yon. Daniel Greenfield on the Left circling the Soros wagon, notes on the Kanye/PDT Diet Coke summit, Prager on the Left's war to destroy our culture and several pieces on FemiNazism, including an outstanding one from FrontPage Mag comparing and contrasting "Bridie Murphy" Ford with a Nobel Peace Prize winning Yazidi woman.

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