The Morning Report - 10/13/20

bidengita.jpg

Good morning, kids. Tuesday and there are a number of things happening other than the opening day of Judge Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearing. Since they do comprise the bulk of the links let's get this topic out of the way. I say that because I'm sick to freaking death of these things insofar as they're predictable as well as an horrific injustice to the nominee. Since the Robert Bork debacle (and maybe earlier though I can't recall), every Republican nominee for a vacancy on the Supreme Court has been subjected to varying degrees of the most vicious lies, smears and character assassinations in order to strong-arm either the GOP Senators to abandon him or her or to have the nominee withdraw from consideration. It's not coincidental either that the degree to which a nominee is put through hell in front of a national television audience is in direct proportion to his or her judicial philosophy.

The reason is simple: Even as seemingly far gone, from a cultural and societal standpoint, as the nation appears to be, a clear (if not overwhelming) majority of Americans would still never support the majority of the Leftist-Democrat agenda. From the so-called "social issues" to issues central to the Bill of Rights, in all but the bluest of blue states, Democrats could never win an election by openly and honestly running on that platform. They rely on both the unelected fourth branch of government - the bureaucracy - to issue regulations that have the force of law and when ultimately challenged in the court, a cadre of judges to carve them in stone for all time, no matter how blatantly unconstitutional they might be.

Judge Barrett herself stated as such, though much more eloquently than I just did:

Courts have a vital responsibility to the rule of law, which is critical to a free society. But courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in the public life.

Also...

The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the People. The public should not expect courts to do so, and courts should not try.

Those two statements right there were like dropping 50,000 gallons of holy water from an aerial firefighting supertanker on Pazuzu. And considering that the Left are indeed G-dless heathens, that's not just a metaphor.

Believing they are "brights" who always "follow the science," they dismiss spiritual reality and favor the very unscientific idea that all reality, including human beings, is material, and hence amenable to technocratic manipulation. Those who believe otherwise are scorned as irrational and superstitious, and so cannot be trusted to act professionally rather than in service to their "loud dogma."

The great irony is that modernity's greatest crimes did not come from Jewish or Christian doctrine. It wasn't traditional Jewish or Christian doctrine, for example, that created "scientific racism" and its practical application, eugenics, which influenced Nazi race-laws and the justifying arguments for the "final solution." Indeed, one of the Supreme Court's sorriest moments came with the 1927 decision Buck v. Bell, which legitimized forced sterilization in order to keep lesser breeds from reproducing. The vote was 8-1.

The dissenter was Pierce Butler, a Catholic.

The central tenet of the Democrat Party is a vast, centralized, all-powerful state that grants or takes away an individual's rights as it deems fit. This is known in the trade as "tyranny." The seating of Amy Coney Barrett would most certainly challenge if not seriously impede that for decades to come -- at least if President Trump prevails three weeks from today (wow).

So now, knowing full well that to attempt to slime Judge Barrett or parade a gaggle of liars and frauds with some phony Balsey-Ford 2: Rape-Train Boogaloo smear would be ill-advised given how close we are to an election and that the public more than likely will not swallow it, the Democrat freaks and geeks posing as Senators are using the opportunity to trash President Trump, claim that Barrett's confirmation will lead to the equivalent of mass death and also bastardize (yet again) the language and claim that Trump is "packing the court."

No, fuckers. Trump is seating a justice as is his right and his Constitutional duty to do. He's fulfilling a campaign promise he made four years ago to restore sanity to the judiciary by seating judges who will uphold the Constitution, not figure out ways to go around it in order to use it as a Democrat "insurance policy" (nudge-nudge wink-wink). Of all the things that aggravate me about the Left, the worst is their Orwellian bastardization of language and their claiming the mantle of being the just and righteous when everything that they have ever done or said proves just the opposite. At least with the election of Trump, I think more and more people are wise to this.

In any case, the Democrats have no one else to blame but themselves. Specifically Harry Reid and the late Ruth Bader-Meinhoff. Both were so cocksure that Hillary would win that the former blew up the filibuster in order to pack the DC Circuit, thinking once she was in, McConnell and the GOP would be neutered forever and the latter for insisting on retiring when she could see her replacement - think Kamala Harris or even Letitia James or Kim Foxx - sworn in by Hillary. How'd that work out for you, Dems?

And please, spare me the Merrick Garland tripe. There is no rule that states a President cannot seat a justice in an election year. Garland was resisted because the Senate and the President were from opposing parties. The principle of advise and consent clearly shows that Donald Trump is absolutely and unequivocally within his right to seat the nominee of his choosing up until noon on January 20th 2025. In other words, LOL-GF. It goes beyond being sore losers; these people truly feel as if they are entitled to lord over us. That's why we got the Clinton/Obama soft coup. That's why we have rioting and insurrection in the streets. That's why we have lockdowns and religious persecution on the pretext of a non-existent medical emergency. This is dangerous. But, at least all of this is out in the open for anyone with eyes to see, and a mind to reason. And you can thank the election of Donald Trump four years ago for forcing them to reveal themselves, and especially the prospect of his re-election.

As an aside, if Cuck Schemer wants to play games by preventing a quorum, then Graham and Grassley should just enter Judge Barrett's Senate testimony from her confirmation hearing three years ago for her 7th Circuit seat, deem her having passed the committee and move for an up or down vote in the Senate. Now.

Speaking of which, this is not surprising but it is nevertheless alarming:

An organization of radical left-wing activists has posted an online guide to "disruption" that outlines a plan to shut down the country and force President Donald Trump from power in the event that the 2020 election is too close to call.

The guide, "Stopping the Coup," available as a Google doc, is being circulated by a group called ShutDownDC. It casts its plan for disruption as a response to an imagined "coup" by the president in the case of a close election.

In an email promoting the guide, ShutDownDC declares: "Preventing Donald Trump from stealing the election and remaining in office is likely to take mass, sustained disruptive movements all over the country." The guide is a manual to that "disruption."

Parts of the guide are committed to ensuring a "fair election." Parts of it, however, read like a manual for staging a coup rather than a guide to preventing one:

In the context of a coup or highly contested election we need to be clear that our actions must directly affect the structures and pillars of power. Our largest asset in this regard utilizes the ideas of non-compliance through massive, broad based direct action. Where we can, we need to be in the streets, on the highways, or at the sites of power and power holders. In our jobs and lives we must refuse to allow those taking control the legitimacy of the power they seek through strikes, slowdowns, and boycotts, and public refusal to accept an illegitimate ruling party.

Another section urges activists to stop American life from continuing if the election does not go their way (original emphasis):

In order to really win we will need to force some pillars of power (business, military, media, or other major institutions) to decide to side with the people, or at least get out of the way. If everyday life goes on, a despot will not leave power, and so there will be no incentive for real systems change. You want to think about what it might take to stop business-as-usual.

Well, now, isn't that special? One wonders if the DOJ and FBI are aware of this and have some sort of contingency plan to deal with this? Better yet, if they would preemptively disrupt the organizers and funders of this? My guess is they are too busy trying to find that vast network of "white supremacists" like the ones that plotted to kidnap Michigan Gauleiter Wretched Whitmer. Oh wait, they were Trump-hating anarchists? Never mind.

Then again, maybe we need to look further afield for the source of all or much of this:

Although the United States is not a [China Belt and Road Initiative] member, what's becoming more exposed through daily revelations is China's sub-rosa investment, insurgent involvement, and planned takeover of America's institutions and business sectors, including academia, entertainment, finance, agriculture and others.

What is less well understood and still remains largely obscured is China's role in funding, organizing, and supporting anti-American groups responsible for the riots, looting, violence, and property destruction that have occurred over the last few months. What is becoming ever clearer, though, is that China had a central role in providing the financial support, structural assistance, ideological manifestos, and mass and social media propaganda tools to America-hating radicals who are intent on destroying this nation and its people's way of life.

The Chinese Virus; I do not think it is what others think it is...
