The Morning Report - 4/17/19


Good morning kids. Midweek and lots of ground to cover so let's get with it. First up is the fallout from the Notre Dame fire and although I alluded to what it meant metaphorically (as do several fine links including one from Dennis Prager), surprisingly and embarrassingly, I did not bring up the 1,600-year-old cancer in the room: Islam. CBD did a fine follow on post about the raging epidemic of church vandalism and fires taking place all over France and much of Europe I'm sure, where the "Religion of Peace" is subsuming whatever is left of Western Judeo-Christian civilization that has not been snuffed out by its own hands.

I admit that even I was not aware of the epidemic of church desecrations, thanks largely to a media actively working to cover up the global jihad or excuse and obfuscate those acts it cannot. That was shoved right in our face yesterday in the erstwhile "fair and balanced" Fox News coverage of the fire by Shep Smith and Neil Cavuto. The former was interviewing a French media analyst, someone I should think has more of a handle on what's going on in the country than Shep. But the moment he mentioned the wave of church arson and desecration, Smith warned him not to speculate about it and repeatedly shut him down. Here's a guy in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina unequivocally declared there was cannibalism going on in the Superdome and night after night for the past two years proclaimed Trump to be a liar - both with absolutely zero evidence at all. And yet, he has the unmitigated temerity to warn a French media analyst not to mention the possible connection to scores of absolutely 100% confirmed acts of church arson ravaging that country.

Even more disgusting was the performance of Neil Cavuto, someone I actually once respected as a fair and open-minded pundit. No more. His guest was Bill Donohue, one of the most erudite, knowledgeable and vocal proponents not just of Catholicism but of religious freedom and tolerance. You couldn't find a more decent guy out there. And yet, when he brought up the undeniable possibility that this might be another act of terrorism, Cavuto fired a warning shot. Donahue did not back down and rightly and reasonably tried to bring up the issue which by all logic and reasoning is relevant even if it has yet to be proven or disproven. Beyond that, the wave of attacks and other persecution against Christians and Jews around the world perpetrated 99.999% by Muslims (who also are far and away most culpable for attacks on their co-religionists) and in accordance with the central tenets of their faith has been going on almost non-stop and in ever-increasing frequency and bloodiness since 9/11 and mores since Obama and his administration's fecklessness and madness spawned ISIS.

In any case, when a reasonable, responsible religious advocate and civic leader such as Bill Donohue, who is about as far from a tinfoil-hat wearing fire-can't-melt-steel type as you can get raises the issue, what did Cavuto do? He hung up on him. Loathsome, loutish and despicable. And dangerous.

All of this serves as an object lesson when one considers the revolting, pig-ignorant words of "Bro-Fo" Omar, and the reaction to them from all quarters. Rush Limbaugh made this observation yesterday:

...You know, there is a trend that has developed in the Drive-By Media, and it is happening all over cable news. It doesn't matter where you go in the mainstream media. Any story that comes out, any story, if the story is a negative for the Republicans or for conservatives, then that alone is the story.

However, if a story emerges that is bad for the left, like the Covington kids or the Mueller report or anything, anything that is bad for the left, anything that's bad for the media, guess what the story is? The story is not the story. The story is the right's reaction to it. And so the conservative Republican segment of our population is always the target of any story, especially stories that are bad for the left, especially stories that point to the hypocrisy of the left...

The media is supposed to be a sacred institution whose purpose is pursuing the truth wherever it may take us as well as ensuring that all opinions have a free and open forum to be expressed. Now, take what I just said and imagine it's exact polar opposite. That is our legacy media today. It is actively seeking to silence anyone and anything that will impede, disrupt or threaten the Leftist Globalist enterprise. And given that Islam has the unholiest of alliances (pun totally intended) with the aforementioned, all voices against it will have their tongues cut out. Rhetorically or otherwise.

Moving on, with the redacted Mueller Report set for release tomorrow, Mollie Hemingway rips "Intern-Crusher" Joe Scarborough a new one, two potentially big stories that could blow the lid off the FBI-Hillary Clinton cover-ups (the Media notwithstanding), and how the Michael Cohen Prague fable blew the collusion hoax wide open.

To the border where we have several links about Trump's threat to ship all the border jumpers to sanctuary cities and states, which the political leaders of same now are trying to redefine the meaning of in order to bash Trump, in the wake of the 9th Circus' upholding of policy, AG Barr and the President are moving to bolster the prevention of asylum seekers from entering the US and the disgusting moves by NY state's legislature that confirms foreigners are more valuable than US citizens, even wounded and homeless vets.

Dem Scandal Sheet and Official Party Anti-Semitism: Turns out Kim Foxx was no fan of Jussie Galore even before the Foxx-fixx was in, Calypso Louis and his Nation of Islime pimp a 9/11 truther video to defend "Bro-Fo", the latter and Rancida Tliban are getting oodles of cash all of a sudden, Nancy Palsi assures the media - i.e. gives them their marching orders - that the Democrat Pary ain't no ways agin' dem Heebs, and Steve Cohen burps up more incitement against the President and those who support him.

Elsewhere in politics, a look at the Dem clown car 2020 field, Nancy Palsi is dead right about the fate of the Constitution vis a vis 2020. Just look at what New Mexico did to disenfranchise its voters by signing on with the Electoral College sabotage attempt. Looks like there's a war on between the Clinton and Sanders factions, perhaps indicating that she might toss her Depends into the ring, pasty, white and bloated Tubby Riefenstahl rails against pasty, white and bloated Democrats, Humberto Fontova blasts a Dem dupe who goes to Cuba to praise it, Pew Research confirms Latinos now beat out Blacks as largest minority bloc, is America ready to let the Wookie win in '20?, Daniel Greenfield rips closeted organizer Spartacus over reparations, and can the Dems hide the radicalism leading up to 2020? Meh, they're doing all they can to one-up themselves every damn day.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Aside from the dhimmitudinous censorship, CNN continues to crater, even with all the airports and Marvin Gardens, Instagram nixes Aussie rugby star for quoting the Bible, and more analysis on l'affaire Julian Assange.

Abortion: Bernie tap dances around infanticide.

Foreign Desk: Many good links on the aftermath of the Notre Dame fire plus, Trump vetoes bill to pull US out of Yemen, US military not happy about Chi-Com intervention in Venezuela, Chi-Coms not happy about us criticizing their being there (fuck off, Hop Sing), the State Department once again proves its historic duplicitousness and disloyalty, NYC's Museum of Natural History insults Brazil's President Bolsonaro, Arab Spring 2.0 in North Africa?, a look at the oil weapon in today's geopolitical world, and the 25th anniversary of the insane Oslo Accords.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Try reading this essay to Shep or Cavuto.

Domestic Affairs and the Economy: With a GOP like this, who needs Democrats? Also, Seattle residents in revolt but civic leaders ain't impressed, in praise of Trump's trade policies and the nexus of identity politics and, of all things, corporate America.

Crime & Punishment: ACLU sues Detroit to end cash bail, on Nipsie Hussel and thug degeneracy, and the law fails a man with fatal consequences.

Education: How the hell did Duke and UNC get our tax dollars to subsidize Joo-hatred, Mike Rowe lays down a truth bomb about college, and the political social experiment that killed public high schools.

Actual Science and Technology: Israeli scientists 3-D print human heart (Sarsour sez "from the liver to the knee"), and Darwinism is being questioned more and more.

Feminazism, Transgender Psychosis: Pro-Gay feminist mother of trans kid is no protection from being ripped for saying "conversion therapy" should be allowed.

Hither and Yon: Apple's swank 5th Avenue store has bugs, and not in the software, Christian Toto on nine comedians who did not bow to PC, and another look at the blind madness of the attempt to erase history.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.
