The Morning Report - 7/30/20

Good morning, kids. Thursday and as society continues to crumble around us the top story is yesterday's House hearing on Big Brother Tech's monopoly on internet communications, and specifically censorship of political views that its Mandarins - very much pun intended - disapprove.

The links and precis speak for themselves but there were a couple of highlights. One came out of the blue and it knocked odious toad Jamie Raskin on his sagging ass:

... After Jordan finished his questioning, Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) called his concerns "fringe conspiracy theories."

Jordan responded, "We have the email, there is no fringe conspiracy," in reference to an email by a Google employee discussing steps they had taken to boost Latino voter turnout in "key states" in 2016.

Subcommittee Chairman David Cicilline (D-RI) then began scolding Jordan for interrupting during Scanlon's time to speak. Raskin then yelled to Jordan, "Put your mask on."

Jordan fired back: "Mr. Raskin, you want to talk about masks? Why would the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury unmask Michael Flynn's name?"

Jordan was referring to Raskin's wife, Sarah Bloom Raskin, who was one of the Obama appointees who requested the unmasking of Flynn, who was the incoming national security adviser at the time...

Boom.

I like Jim Jordan. A lot. That said, Tucker Carlson had him on his show and asked him a question that at first glance does tend to raise an eyebrow.

..."It seems very difficult for any candidate or party to win anything if all the information about the race is controlled by people who are working for the other side, which is where we are now," Carlson said. "Let me ask you, Jim Sensenbrenner has taken money from Google, Google is your second-biggest campaign contributor in the last cycle, why do you think they would give you money? And why would you take it?"

"Look, if they want to exercise their First Amendment liberties and give me money, I raised $3 million last quarter, if Google gives me a few thousand-dollar check, G-d bless them," Jordan responded. "That doesn't change who I am. You saw that today in the committee, I went after them for the very issue you just raised..."


Bingo. I like Tu-Ca, and while I don't know where he got that info about Google being Jordan's "second-biggest contributor" in the past election cycle, I guess he's doing kind of a due diligence thing insofar as you have to believe the Democrats know this as well. As does Google, who gave that money to an archenemy knowing full well it could be used at some point against him as gotcha propaganda. In any case, every conservative website I peruse, including this one, does from time to time have ads for Democrat candidates and leftist causes so this is a nothing-burger.

In any case the mega-trillion dollar/multi-megaton eggroll in the room here is China. What the Soviets did from the 1920s almost to the fall of the Berlin Wall in terms of infiltrating every aspect of American society to bring it down from within I think pales in comparison to what the Chi-Coms have done in just the last 20. Well, the Soviets laid the groundwork, but Chi-Com lucre speaks in a language all its own in terms of bribing all-too-willing politicians and corporate execs. Then there's the spying, the Confucius Institutes on our campuses that pour gasoline on the already raging inferno of anti-Americanism. Not to mention the Chinese Coronavirus they unleashed on us. The harm caused by the disease itself is negligible at worst. Leftist politicians and bureaucrats using it as pretext to seize emergency powers and then strangle our economy and personal freedoms all in the name of destroying the President and all of us who put him in office is another matter entirely.

While our cities burn because of another propaganda meme, it would not surprise me in the least to learn that the Chi-Coms are also helping to finance the mayhem, along with the usual suspects of the admitted Nazi collaborator kind. Circling back to Google, it is that evil entity which played a huge role in developing so-called "social credit" software and apps that can allow Xi and his underlings to control a billion people. And that is coming to a city and town near you if it isn't here already. In fact, it's already here, especially when you consider the cultural revolutionaries purging people from their jobs merely for voicing concern or opposition to BLM, or for doctors who know the truth about HCQ as a true magic bullet to both heal and prevent Peking Pox, and so on.

Yet, the Chi-Coms are only as effective as our domestic enemies allow them to be. They are not fellow citizens because they have denounced and betrayed our country and are now openly trying to overthrow it - all while play-acting the role of victims, underdogs, the oppressed and, most egregiously, the defenders of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. That is truly the most hateful thing to me. YMMV.

I'll leave it with this excerpt from Sebastian Gorka's excellent piece, which deserves your full attention:

... Now can you see how Ocasio-Cortez and Omar are not fringe accidents but the direct consequence of a 90-year degeneration that began when some Marxist realized there was no way to take over the countries of the free West except from the inside?

Even so, you cannot get from Antonio Gramsci to Ocasio-Cortez without mentioning one more person -- the person who was, and remains, a muse and hero to so many radical leftists and who, in fact, was the subject of Hillary Clinton's thesis at Wellesley: Saul Alinsky. To quote Andrew Breitbart again:
[I]f Marcuse was the Jesus of the New Left, then Alinsky was his Saint Paul, proselytizing and dumbing down Marcuse's message, making it practical, and convincing leaders to make it the official religion of the United States, even if that meant discarding the old secular religion of the United States, the Constitution.

[And his book] Rules for Radicals might just as well be entitled How to Take Over America from the Inside. It's theory made flesh. Alinksy laid it out step by step, but we were too busy fighting the results to reread his game plan.

...This is how an ideology that has failed in all 40 countries in which it has been tried, and which cost the lives of over 100 million humans, has been exported to and now thrives in America. According to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, more than 70 percent of American Millennials would prefer to live in a socialist or Communist America. If freedom-loving patriots do not do everything possible to ensure that President Donald Trump is reelected in less than three months' time, that is exactly what we'll get.
