The Morning Report - 8/4/20

basstardd.jpg

Good morning, kids. Tuesday, and although some of the headlines from Bosnia-Herzegovina of the Pacific Northwest - Portland and Seattle - continue to chronicle the actions of the Revolutionaries-for-the-Hell-of-It, I nevertheless get the sense that the mayhem is beginning petering out. America is getting a good hard look at not so much a reaction to a past situation but a crystal ball view of the future - its future if a drooling, semi-cognizant rutabaga is wheeled over the finish line of what would be a completely rigged election. Probably the last free-(ish) election America will ever see as America.

The Democrat-Media Complex knows it too, hence the ramping up to eleventy-leven of the gas-lighting that all of this is a "myth," to quote the noxious gas giant also known as Nadler. Whatever goodwill they might have had in the immediate wake of the unfortunate death at the hands of Minneapolis police of a black career criminal, the Left has completely squandered it, and then some, as cities burned while Democrat mayors and others poured napalm on the already raging inferno by defunding and/or abolishing police forces, releasing criminals on the pretext of a virus no more deadly than flu, attempting to erase our history, and now Mafia-style shakedowns of innocent civilians already on the brink of destitution and bankruptcy thanks to the forced strangulation of the entire economy also because of the phony pandemic panic. Try as they might to blame President Trump for this - and he did slip somewhat in the polls a few weeks back - it's getting more and more obvious that all of this, too, has backfired. How spectacularly remains to be seen. But I think that they know, and we know, and they know that we know that barring the potential success or the chaos in the aftermath of Mail-In Voting election theft/shenanigans, Joe Biden is heading for at the least, a clear defeat and at worst, a shellacking to perhaps nearly the same degree as he faced in January.

Funny how back then, Trump's wildly successful economy and foreign policy victories were the reason he was unstoppable, but now, the Democrats' national arson and attempted murder of America not only underscores what they've done and yet want to do, but will doubtless motivate voters who want it restored. And that could include a sizeable portion of Democrats who have opened their eyes and are not liking what they are seeing.

Here are a couple of tells. First up, we have key house organ The New York Times with an op-ed stating that debates in general are useless, counterproductive and should be abolished. Of course they never mention their terror that Joe Biden would be completely dismantled by Trump and as the standard-bearer of the Democrat Party and all it stands for, the latter as well. Second, the complete debacle of the vice presidential pick, of which the Dems had few good options and since Biden insisted it would be a non-white female, none at all. The Politico accidental or otherwise leaking that it was Kamala-Toe Harris didn't exactly thrill or even surprise anyone. The Maoists have no love for her because of her record as California AG as well as her being only half-black and Jamaican at that.

Meanwhile, the other major contender is fellow Californian Karen Bass who also looks like a train wreck now that the spotlight is on her record.

As a community organizer in Los Angeles before entering politics, California Rep. Karen Bass said it was a "miracle" that hundreds of neighborhood liquor stores were burned down during the riots of 1992, asserting that the arsons "accomplished" what her activist group had fought for years to achieve.

"That's not the way we wanted it to happen, but the rioting accomplished in a few days what we have spent decades working to achieve," Bass told The New York Times in an article published in November 1992.

Bass, who is now considered a top contender for Joe Biden's running mate, began organizing in 1991 to shut down liquor stores, many of which were owned by Korean immigrants. She argued that the stores served as hotspots for violence, prostitution and other crimes that blighted poor, majority-black neighborhoods in Los Angeles...

Naturally it was the mere presence of those stores and not, say, the actions of the residents themselves that was to blame.

Yes, this is the same Karen Bass who as a youth went to Cuba and worked in the Venceremos Brigade but now does a Charlie Gibson with, "Fidel Castro a brutal dictator? I had no idea!" But wait! There's more!

Now Bass and her boosters are in full CYA mode as she tries to defend her cozy relationship with that great humanitarian organization, The Nation of Islam:

... Bass, a California Democrat, appeared alongside Tony Muhammad, the director of the Nation of Islam's Western division, at events in 2014 and 2015. Bass is seen posing with Muhammad in a photo posted online by Mablean Ephriam, the former host of Fox television program "Justice With Judge Mable."

She attended an anti-police brutality event in April 2015 along with Muhammad and other Los Angeles-area activists, video shows. Dr. Mauluna Karenga, the founder of the holiday Kwanzaa, also spoke at the rally.

Karenga was convicted in 1971 on charges that he tortured two women who were part of his black liberation paramilitary group, US Organization...

"Rep. Bass has never met Louis Farrakhan, has never spoken to Louis Farrakhan and has no ties to Louis Farrakhan," the spokesperson said, asserting that the congresswoman "is in no way linked to Louis Farrakhan or the Nation of Islam..."

The Bass spokesperson did not address a question of whether she is willing to denounce the Nation of Islam and Farrakhan...

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. In any case, as Ace had last night and I have linked again, the Democrats are already conducting war games in case Trump "steals" the election; i.e. he wins yuuuugely despite the Dems' attempt to steal it. As horrendous as what's going on in Portland, Seattle and a dozen or so other Democrat shit-holes, I can't see that spreading the length and breadth of the nation. As far as the Stauffenberg wannabes at the Joint Chiefs of Staff and elsewhere, that's another matter.
