The Morning Report: 10% Of What Sefton Does Edition (7/23/2019)

Morning Report intro.jpg

Not quite the breaking news that you have come to expect with Sefton Inc., but here are some links that are topical and interesting.

We start off with a typical, deeply dishonest piece from The Daily Beast, or rather the Breitbart fisking of it, because I'm not going to subject you to their drek. They savaged Mariano Rivera, a genuinely good person who happens to be pro-Israel and conservative, so of course he should be destroyed! Then some behind-the-scenes stuff about the current mess at the NRA. I am getting more and more disgusted, and might just give all of my gun-advocacy money to GOA. And what's up with the staying power of the lunatics who think that the moon landing was staged?

Then onto a brutally honest and very, very un-PC analysis of where population trends in Africa are taking us. And from a blog I haven't read in awhile, a short economics lesson on why slavery was a dumb idea. Speaking of slave behavior, the next article points out that Democrats in NYC will vote for anyone who claims the mantle of poverty and minority status...even if she is a rich girl with a trust fund!

Then some depressing but unsurprising news about the State Department and its deeply embedded (like a tick) deep state scum. And what day isn't complete without a discussion of dudes who weren't good enough athletes to beat other men, so they pretend to be chicks, and VICTORY! And speaking of scams, here is Barbara Ehrenreich and her scathing criticism of the "Wellness Industry." It's interesting, but there is an undertone in her that smacks of lunatic. For a bit of a change, a short exegesis on Job:37!

On to an interesting explanation of why many American Jews are ambivalent (at best) about Israel, then an Israeli security analyst's unconventional take on Iran. I think he's partially correct, but I wouldn't bet the house on Iran being a sane actor.

We finish up with an interesting counterpoint to the drumbeat from the usual suspects that most people in American prisons don't really belong there, and a cool list and short description (with pictures!) of the IDF's top 10 innovations.
