The Morning Report - 11/8/18

Good morning kids. Before we delve into politics and the aftermath of the Midterms, there are a few breaking stories that take the lead. Last night, a gunman opened fire in a California bar and killed 12 people, including a sheriff's deputy. Details are still sketchy so we'll be following as the story unfolds. I don't know how that could've possibly happened in the land of Chi-Com Di-Fi, but prayers for the victims and their loved ones.

Now that the midterms are over, the Democrats are fulfilling their promise to return to civility by "collateral damaging" Tucker Carlson. Evidently a mob showed up at his house yesterday, threatened him and told him to leave the country. And then Daniel Greenfield tells us about the renewed war agains the Jews in New York City (aka "Hymietown" to the uh-Reverned-uh-JACK-sunnn). When I say the Jews, I mean the ones that control the weather and worship at the "synagogue of Satan" as Herr Farrakkkan tells us, not the ones that reject the Torah and are rushing to get their foreskins reattached. Unless they're transsexual and want the whole 4 inches. But I digress. Considering the fact that America just sent two openly anti-semitic Muslim women to Congress, re-elected wife beater and Farrakhan disciple Keith Ellison, narrowly defeated anti-semite Andrew Gillum in Florida (Florida!) and at least since 2012 if not before is openly calling for the United States to join the UN-led movement to fire up the ovens at Birkenau once more (which is weird since I thought according to them the gas chambers and crematoria were a myth?), is any of this really a surprise? This is today's Democrat Party, people. More on this in a moment but back to the Midterms.

With the dust still settling after the midterms, I think it's getting a bit easier to put things into more of a perspective, so we can really kind of divine the tea leaves as it were and figure out a way forward. On a tactical level, losing the House is to be charitable, suboptimal. That said it could've been much much worse as the Trump House lost the least number of seats in modern midterm election history. Recall that Obama helped to wipe out his party in 2010 and really every election thereafter until now (and all of the candidates he stumped for felt the shit-midas touch and went down in flames). Unfortunately this did not have to happen at all. 40 GOP congressmen, rather than helping President Trump enact his agenda knowingly or not were duped by the yearlong media hype that the Blue Wave was going to wipe them out, and so opted not to be a part of it. I swallowed the excuse that they were being term-limited out of their committee chairmanships as the reason for retiring. Had even half of them stayed, the incumbency factor - RINO or not - might have preserved our hold on the House. And now, the ones that PDT called out yesterday are bitching and moaning and exposing their true colors. At least, their exit from elected office will hopefully be a salutary effect on the GOP as a whole. We shall see. And in the Senate, we have increased our advantage to at least 53 or 54 seats. This is actually crucial since we may yet have a shot at at least one more SCOTUS pick before 2020. Several good links at the bottom of the politics section analyzing what it all means going forward.

Beyond that, not even 18 hours passed since the polls closed that the Democrats in the House announced a full scale war on the President vis a vis impeachment of him and Justice Kavanaugh (um, check your Constitution "Nads" Nadler, unless you burned it already). Bring it. The President, to his credit, is yet again attempting to be conciliatory and the Dems are rising to take the bait and are biting his hand in front of the TV cameras. Nadler and now Schiff-for-brains I think have already driven the first big nail into their coffin for 2020 with this. In any case, all of this prevents them from bringing forth any legislation that once again tightens the ratchet towards Socialism so that is a good thing. Let them waste the next two years on all of this.

But circling back to the now open insanity and raving America- and Joo-Hate that are official pillars of the Democrat Party platform, what got me and others down yesterday was the fact that we are looking at psychos like Gillum, Abrams, Loopy Fiasco, Sinema et al and aside from being repulsed think, man how can the Dems be so stupid as to run these fiends? But that said, I came to the realization that there is a significant number of people in this country that look at these same people and see the equivalents of Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan and Thomas Paine. An then a feeling of emptiness hit me in the gut and the question in my mind crystallized "Is the coming of Trump a harbinger of at least a shot at an American renaissance or, even if reelected, is it just speed bump on our inevitable decline and fall as the republic as founded?" G-d help us. The American experiment is a miracle of history, given the nature of mankind over the previous 10,000 years of organized civilizations (and really the nature of man's DNA). As wondrous as we are as a society, even as completely f***ed up as it is right now, can we beat this back and defy the odds? In any case, life is always full of surprises and we can never know the future. So live for the simple things and joys, put your faith in the Lord, and do whatever you can to piss off a Leftist at least once a day.

The other big story that broke yesterday is the ankling, finally, of Jeff Sessionszzzz as Attorney General. He's being replaced in the interim, not by Rod Rosenpenis but by Matthew Whitaker, an open critic of the Mueller witch hunt and IIRC someone who would've liked to have seen Hillary prosecuted if not investigated - a real one, not a Comey one. The Dems have absolutely gone insane with the geschrei of "Constitutional crisis!" Funny since that group openly seeks to distort if not utterly discard that document if it had the chance. The functions of the Executive branch are limited to that of the Chief Executive. I guess Judge Buch M. Danno in Honolulu has yet to weigh in. Names like Kobach and Giuliani have been suggested along with Gowdy and Krispy Kreosote. Feh! J. Christian Adams would be my choice, for no other reason than to sack he entire Civil Rights division as a giant flipping of the bird in Eric Holder's direction. And that leads us into the realms of the Mueler witch hunt itself. The President still holds all the cards vis a vis declassifying all the documents to the aforementioned which no doubt would expose many Dems and Deep-Staters as the frauds and crooks that they are. Stay tuned.

In other news, Rabbi Fischer weighs in on Jm.J Acosta, "Tank" Abrams' crew is desperate to force a runoff in Georgia (I guess they didn't forge enough ballots), 1.5 million ex-cons in Florida can now vote, the green agenda got shellacked at the voting booth, even in Washington State, a look at how Obama's CIA helped liquidate 60 secret operatives, PDT is talking deal making to "pay for middle class tax cuts" (this gets me crazy; you don't pay for tax cuts!), Tubby Riefenstahl hates black people, a call to end the pointless and bloody Afghan war, can sanctions bring about Iranian regime change, Xer-Scouts sue Xe-Scouts over copyright infringement and lastly, a tranny sues a group of women for refusing to wax poetic...

*sound of Sefton searching for nearest oven to stick head into*

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