The Morning Report - 7/2/20

Good morning, kids. Thursday, and it's another one of those days where the links will either scare the crap out of you or you'll marvel at how the Democrats are just playing Russian roulette, not with one bullet but five in the chamber. All things considered, with open violence and mayhem, the Maoist-inspired figurative and literal dismantling of our culture, and the censorship, remonstration and physical intimidation of even the slightest hint of dissent, things like the House passing a $1.5 trillion economy-killing environmental bill, promising to kill the filibuster, pushing for DC statehood i.e. two more Democrat Senators, gun confiscation, massive tax increases, instant citizenship for millions and millions of illegal aliens, nationalizing local community boards (see below) and on and on should seal the deal with anyone who has even marginally more brain cells than Donkey-Chompers AOC. I mean, seal the deal to keep Trump in office and the Dems in the minority.

Yes, every election season includes the hyperbolic phrase "this is the most important election of our lifetime." In fairness, given who and what the Democrats are and always have been, that has always been true, given the aftermath of Johnson, Carter, Clinton and Obama.

But we have crossed into territory where it is not only not hyperbolic but fairly accurate to state this may be the last election of our lifetime. As Joel Pollak told Ezra Levant:

..."We are staring down the barrel of a 'Red November,' and I don't see how we recover from that politically if [Donald] Trump loses because Democrats have made it clear... they're not interested in solving the problem they've identified with policing. They just want the issue, and that tells me they want to keep fomenting this sort of unrest."

... Pollak warned, "What they're going to do is a complete socialist revolution. Before, I thought maybe it was a little whimsical to suggest that. Now I believe it's 100 percent true."

..."They're going to create a new Democrat-held Senate. They're going to knock away the filibuster to get rid of minority protections in the Senate, and they're just going to pass whatever they want. It's going to be Green New Deal, amnesty for illegal immigrants, you name it. This is going to be a socialist revolution. They'll rewrite the histories afterward so that those of us who remember things a little differently will be called racists. We won't be published; we won't be heard."

"They will tell themselves, the country, and the world that this was the second American Revolution, that this was the socialist revolution to correct all of the flaws in the original model. That's what they can taste already. That's what they feel is happening."

...The future is not predetermined, maintained Pollak.

"Essentially we're in a situation where the country is going to sink if Democrats win," Pollak said. "They've made their intentions absolutely clear. We're facing a second American Revolution. It's something that worries us constantly now on the right, and a lot of the anxiety you see comes from a productive place. People are anxious about finding solutions for this. There's still time to turn it around..."

I can't quote the entire piece, but Pollak ends on an upbeat yet pragmatic note on what we and the President have to do to make he sure he crosses the finish line first come November. I agree with him insofar as even the obstacles now intentionally put in our way via the national hostage crisis of the Chinese Lung AIDS lockdowns, as well as the constant drumbeat of gloom, doom and fear about that coupled with the usual lies and distortions of the Democrat propagandists with press credentials can be overcome.

The problem - as it always has been and probably always will be - is the Republican Party. With few exceptions, it does not like Trump and never will like Trump both personally and politically. More than the snobbery of elitism, those in the GOP-e have no problem playing the role of public doormat of the Democrats because they are part of the club. They get to be the remora that feed off the scraps not consumed by the shark. While Democrats have spent over 100 years destroying America for ideological reasons and a lust for power, the Republicans have been quite happy to be there to make a buck off the destruction, as well as keep the seat warm and never fuck with the controls should a Democrat now and again lose an election.

Not so with Trump. He, like we, saw what was going on and we put him in the Oval Office to stop it and reverse it. As bad as things were during the 8-year Reign of Error that was the Obama regime, the most dangerous time was the first two years when the Democrats controlled both the Executive and Legislative Branches, as well as for the most part the Judiciary ("it's a tax!"). I think what prevented us from national death right there was a mix of both incompetence and hubris. I distinctly recall a pundit (maybe James Carville?) crowing on election night 2008 that for all intents and purposes, conservatism was dead, that the GOP had become effectively a regional (i.e. southern) party and that Democrats would go from victory to victory for the next 40 years. "We Are All Socialists Now" the erstwhile Newsweek proclaimed on its nauseating cover, not soon afterwards.

At that time, Obama and his minions were still operating within the rigged game/illusion of "normal" political order and kept the Marxism on the down-low, or at least tried to. They really believed they had all the time in the world and that the fate of this nation to sink beneath the waves was sealed. So, instead of going for the national kill shot - amnesty and instant citizenship and Democrat Party registration for from 11 to perhaps as many as 35 million illegal aliens - they decided to go for Obamacare instead. Two entire years to get an instant insurmountable voting majority and they blew it. Recall that in the waning years of the Dubya debacle, he wanted to do amnesty and it took a herculean effort just to stop him, a Republican.

I bring this up because with scum like Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, John Cornyn and other get-along-go-along "build-the-dang-wall!" fakers, phonies, whores and gonifffs, who needs a GOP majority in the Senate anyway. I mean, if Ruth Bader-Meinhoff kicks the bucket or the rumors of Samuel Alito retiring are true, do you think that any Trump nominee, let alone a real originalist/strict constructionist is going to have a shot? In this environment? Even if Trump wins and holds the Senate?

Holy shit; they desecrated the church across the street from the White House itself, and now flaming assholes like Ron Johnson and James Lankford are leapfrogging ahead of the Marxist Democrats to get rid of the Columbus Day holiday and substitute Juneteenth instead. This after Tucker Carlson reamed Mike Braun for bending over on police reform Yes we debated this yesterday and Braun is a clod on this particular issue. But the salient point is why in the hell are Republicans accepting the Democrat narrative that they, the Dems, are the good guys and champions of truth, justice and the American way when it's as plain as day that they are the literal dictionary definition of the domestic part of "enemies foreign and domestic?"

I can deal with Antifa, BLM and the garbage coming from the Democrat-Media Complex. I can even attempt to deal with the poison coming out of corporate America and the classrooms. But what I cannot and will not accept is not having a political party that does not have our backs. Not when we are at the point of having our backs to the wall, figuratively for now and more than likely literally in the not too distant future. She may be a mind-numbed brainwashed Swedish meatball teenybopper but Greta "Scoldilocks" Thunberg was not lying when she said that.

Oh fuck it. For all intents and purposes the GOP is dead. Unfortunately, given that they are still in control of the Senate, they are un-dead and are acting more Democrat than Democrats with some of this garbage. Now we have traitors not just in the phony Conservative George-Lincoln-Rockwell-Project but a gaggle of ex-Bushies forming a PAC to elect Joe Biden. If GOD FORBID Trump loses, my wrath will not be aimed at the Left.
