The Morning Report - 8/15/19


Good morning, kids. Thursday and several things are happening that actually merit their own individual rants/discourses so I'll try to hit things in a Mason Reese "boragshmord" style:

First we have the end of yesterday's siege in Philadelphia as the vermin in question surrendered. Despite six police officers getting shot and the area devolving into a war zone, residents still had no problem of taunting the cops and even throwing things at them. Is it any wonder, given Democrat presidential candidates such as Fauxca-Has-Been Warren are now ginning up still-raw emotions and hatred by doubling down on the "hands up don't shoot" lie wherein a cop cold-bloodedly assassinated black teenager Michael Brown? From Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker:

...For Warren to reignite the "Brown was murdered" lie five years later is beyond the pale. Warren deceptively markets herself as having superior compassion for victims. In reality, Warren is cold and calculating, willing to say anything in her perverse quest for power to control every aspect of our lives. Elizabeth Warren is a despicable human being...

...Warren's irresponsible lie about the circumstances of Brown's death so infuriated me because it sent a clarion call to blacks to kill more cops. I have had my fill of Democrats instigating hate, violence, and divisiveness while falsely portraying themselves as paragons of superior compassion...

I have a few choice words regarding the removal of her vocal chords via her lower alimentary canal, but I'll leave that to your imaginations.

Next up, and tangentially related, we have the ramping up of the latest phase in the attempt to totally disarm the American people on the pretext of last week's mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. Despite the Second Amendment being arguably the biggest third rail issue for conservative voters, the GOP is engineering yet another sellout, this time with so-called "red flag laws" allegedly meant to take away and prevent firearms from being in the hands of the mentally ill. And that begs the two-part question what constitutes being mentally ill and who gets to decide it? If you're thinking things like NRA membership, opposition to perverts in girls toilets or donating to Republicans, you win a cookie. Unfortunately, while I am still holding off judgment until something is actually signed, the President's ear is once again being bent by his daughter, who has a record of statements showing her to have rather dubious opinions on some very crucial issues. Circling back to Philadelphia, it seems as if the shooter was not only not a member of a white supremacist movement but it's a fair bet the weapon he had was not exactly legal. Care to comment on that, Ivanka?

Third we have the latest Project Veritas video in which Zachary Vorhies, a whistleblower at Google, gathered thousands of pages of internal documents proving the company was indeed censoring conservative and other websites not in line with its politics. From Debra Heine at American Greatness:

..."They were intending to sculpt the information landscape so that they could create their own version of what was objectively true," he explained. "They want to act as gatekeepers between the user and the content that they're trying to access."

Vorhies said that when people see the documents for themselves, "they're going to be shocked, they're going to be terrified, and they're going to be like, 'how could Google so blatantly lie to the American public and lie to Congress when there is a pile of evidence showing that what they're saying is untrue."

Project Veritas published some of the internal Google documents in June of 2019, revealing "algorithmic unfairness." According to Vorhies, those documents were widely available to full-time Google employees. He added, "I felt like our entire election system was going to be compromised forever by this company that had told the American public that it was not going to do any evil and I saw that they were making very quick moves..."

Then things went from bad to worse:

...After he was outed as a "leaker" on Twitter by an anonymous account (believed to a Google employee), law enforcement paid him a visit at his residence in California.

According to Vorhies, San Francisco police received a call from Google, which prompted a "wellness check."

"They got inside the gate, the police, and they started banging on my door... And so the police decided that they were going to call in additional forces. They called in the FBI, they called in the SWAT team. And they called in a bomb squad..."

What was I saying before about who gets to decide what constitutes mental illness? And considering the political landscape of the state of California, and what we saw a month or so ago in Portland, Google has at its disposal probably the entire law enforcement apparatus of the state. If someone like Jeffrey Epstein could be compelled to assist in his own suicide, it's a miracle a formerly anonymous citizen like Vorhies still walks among us.

Google also refuses to cooperate with the Department of Defense in using its technology for national security. All well and good, I suppose. But Google is openly and eagerly acting as a contractor for the Peoples Republic of China to develop technology that actively subverts dissent and can crush anyone who dares object to the regime. Recall that Eric Schmidt visited the Obama Oval office so many times he virtually had his own desk there. Google has also openly proclaimed that it is actively working to prevent the reelection of President Trump which, oddly enough is what the Chi-Coms are also hoping for in 2020. Look, it's gone beyond merely a question of simple bias and the discussion of monopoly or no monopoly. The fact is Google, and the rest of the Big Tech oligopoly, should be considered nothing less than an anti-American entity, alone and now in collusion with a foreign power(s) to subvert our elections and destabilize our society. Whatever the costs to our economy might be, the only reasonable course of action is to physically destroy Google's infrastructure, then try and convict Eric Schmidt, Sundar Pichai and anyone else on the company's board and below for sedition. Cancer oftentimes needs radical surgery and radiation. Nuke Google from orbit.

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.
