The Morning Report - 8/11/20

Good morning, kids. Tuesday and what can only be described as a terrorist campaign is being ramped up as both the lockdowns imposed by Democrat mayors and governors on the pretext of a ginned-up health crisis and the initial wave of rioting and urban insurrection have not only not dinged the intended target, President Trump, at all, they have boosted his popularity as we head into the home stretch towards November 3rd. At the very least, they have exposed the true nature of the Democrats to the American people and to put it mildly they do not like what they see.

First of all, late yesterday afternoon, shots were fired within close proximity to the White House.

..."The suspect approached the officer and told the officer he had a weapon. The suspect then turned around, ran aggressively towards the officer, and in a drawing motion, withdrew an object from his clothing. He then crouched into a shooter's stance as if about to fire a weapon. The Secret Service officer discharged his weapon striking the individual in the torso."

The shooting occurred just as the President was conducting a press briefing, and was escorted out of the room within moments. To be sure he was not in any real danger and the Secret Service was probably following standard procedure. But given what's going on in America's urban areas and the firebombing of nearby St. John's Church late last May this incident is troubling. And then there's this bit of news.

The anarcho-terrorist front group known as Adbusters, infamous for the astroturfed "Occupy Wall Street" takeover of Zucotti Park about 10 years ago is now threatening to lay siege to the White House for 50 days starting on September 17th, presumably ready to storm the gates and lynch Trump should he refuse to leave the White House on Election Day -- even if he wins.

All right, all you activists:

It's been nine years since we set off the political earthquake of #OccupyWallStreet, laying siege to NYC's Zuccotti Park and inspiring thousands of similar protests around the world.

The Occupy anniversary arrives September 17th, 2020. And it may be the perfect day to trigger another global big-bang moment -- a massive collective action of the sweetest kind of disobedience.

The why hardly needs recitation. Because, for these nine years, the shadows have only grown longer. Inequality has soared. Not a single Wall Street CEO spent a night in jail for his role in the 2008 financial meltdown. Politicians and corporate criminals continue to savage the public trust with impunity. And all the while, this howling void of a president, his sins too many to name, sits smugly atop a corona death-toll that may surpass two-hundred thousand Americans by Christmas.

It's time again for dramatic, decisive action. Which is why, on September 17th, in the original and enduring spirit of Occupy, we and tens of thousands of our fellow citizens will stream into Lafayette Square, in Washington. D.C.

We will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain it for exactly fifty days. This is the #WhiteHouseSiege.

A siege only works if it is sustained. We witnessed this -- the multiplying power of a strategic occupation -- nine years ago. You dig in, hold your ground, and the tension accumulates, amplifies, goes global...

Normally, I'd say these vile maggots are full of themselves. But given the destruction we've seen that has ravaged urban areas across the country, with the wink-and-a-nod or even open consent of Democrat elected officials, the completely corrupt district attorneys and attorneys general, many of whom were installed with money from admitted Nazi collaborator George Soros (who is a backer of Occupy Wall Street) who are refusing to prosecute not only the looters and rioters but thousands of other felony cases while emptying the jails of hardened criminals on the pretext they might catch a Chinese cold and we are heading for a potentially dangerous situation. Odd that this commie-communique was belched up on the same day as the shooting incident at the White House.

While the optics of a bedraggled mob of black-clad terrorists attempting to scale the gates at the White House will play in Peoria about as well as CHAZ/CHOP and last weekend's pillaging of Chicago's Magnificent Mile, in the words of poet Jim Morrison "they got the guns but we got the numbers." Of course if they ever attempted a mass assault on the White House, they'd be massacred. Or at least I assume they'd be massacred. Somewhere in the back of my mind, if the shit ever got real in a situation like that, would the phony generals do the same thing that Obama and Clinton did to Chris Stevens and the other martyrs of Benghazi?

Meanwhile, Mayor Lori Light-in-the-Loafers Lightfoot has lost all control of her city as roving gangs of thugs are not only ransacking up and down North Michigan Avenue with impunity, the subhuman garbage of BLM are openly boasting about and calling their thievery "reparations." Seattle, too has lost its mind where yesterday, the city council voted almost unanimously to defund the police, which given the slashing of cops and salaries is in effect an abolition of the police force itself. As a result, Chief Carmen Best, beleaguered as she has been over the past several months, has decided to throw in the towel. Along with the Stumptown, the Windy City and the Big Apple, sic transit gloria Democrat Party.

There have been anecdotal cases of lifelong Democrats looking at what their party is doing and jumping off the crazy train. One story in particular is the absolute surge in gun ownership and first time gun registrations, even in deepest, darkest, bluest anti-gun NYC. It's one thing to have differences of opinion on particular issues, even the most contentious such as abortion. But for the divide to be about the legitimacy of the nation and society itself is quite something else. Even those steeped in bilge from Howard Zinn or the 1619 Project have got to look at the Burning Looting and Murdering and be appalled - even if they won't openly say so for fear of being Burned Looted and Murdered. Naturally, the totally brain dead true believers are a lost cause and are the ones that are doing the Burning Looting and Murdering. So the question is, are they in the majority or the minority, and, down the road, will these old time Democrats turn away from the Shining Path Maoists who have just about hijacked their party? The world wonders...

Meanwhile, as AG William Barr told Mark Levin:

...the riots in places such as Portland and Seattle were highly organized and coordinated, calling them "a new form of urban guerrilla warfare." Barr explained how Antifa "hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean," which is the essence of guerrilla warfare, and that "what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity."

Barr also noted that the Democratic Party's embrace of the violence from Antifa as well as Black Lives Matter was indicative of a broader shift in the American Left, which has "pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded" the founding of the United States, in favor of establishing "a secular religion" with the goal of "complete political victory."

"They want to run people's lives so they can design utopia for all of us," Barr said. "And it's the lust for power. And they weren't expecting Trump's victory. And it outrages them..."

Well, if they were "outraged" by Trump's victory four years ago, stay tuned for this November because you ain't seen nothing yet. And that's win or lose, but especially if he wins.
