The Morning Report - 1/25/21 [J.J. Sefton]

Good morning, kids. Monday and the start of the first full week under the Enemy Junta. It may resemble a Givenchy pump or Testoni loafer, but its hobnail jackboot pedigree is unmistakable. As I said last week at the funeral of what remained of the United States of America, the policy insanity that started on day one wiping out jobs, threatening national security and pimping sexual deviancy will be bad enough. But those who were willing to actually steal an election are now going to use every cubicle in every office in every department in every agency of a feral, all powerful, unstoppable governmental bureaucracy, aided and abetted by media propagandists of the old and newfangled variety to wipe out any and all resistance and voices of opposition from every corner of the land -- even if they have to imprison or otherwise ruin the lives of 80 million of us to do so. Or worse.

It's for all the marbles, right here and right now. That low budget "inauguration" saw thousands of National Guardsmen used (and abused) as props of the Junta, not to protect a legitimately elected president from some supposed "white supremacist" extremist threat but as an extremely unsubtle show of force to anyone who dares question it's legitimacy and authority. Already there are efforts to eject actual political opposition leaders like Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz as well as others in the House for exercising their legal, Constitutional prerogatives in objecting to the Electoral College results. Beyond that, ordinary citizens who worked for, voted for or otherwise openly supported President Trump or voiced their opinion that the election was stolen are being purged from the public square, fired from their jobs or, like Mike Lindel, having their businesses ruined.

This is how freedom dies. Declare some sort of national emergency, use it as an excuse to suspend as much of the Constitution as possible, then seize absolute power and hold on tightly -- by the neck (and the wallet, as we shall see) of those you have seized it from. Even before the Chinese Lung AIDS - a virus that has an IFR (infection fatality rate) of about 0.01% - was used as the pretext to destroy our economy and further cripple an already ridiculously easy to cheat voting system, another national crisis was used to severely erode our freedoms, and pave the way for the predicament we're in.

It's rather a bitter irony that the attacks of September 11th, 2001, which the Clinton regime could have prevented had it (Jamie Gorelick in particular) not hamstrung our law enforcement and intelligence agencies' abilities to go after real threats from Islamic terrorists as opposed to essentially fictional threats from "anti-government" types and "gun nuts." Even when Bin Laden was being handed us on a silver platter not once but three times, Clinton refused to take him out. And what did we do to make sure those 3,000 lives did not die in vain? Establish a secret court to give the thinnest veneer of legality to do what had never been done before, spy on our own citizenry, on the pretext of safeguarding our national security. What did the FISA courts do 15 years later? Allow itself to be used as the vehicle by which the DOJ, FBI, CIA and others in power attempted to sabotage the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump. When it was exposed, to the extent that the propaganda wing of the Junta allowed it to be in the usual house organs, what did those charged with bringing it to heel and punishing those who abused it do? Not one damned thing.

So, with an election stolen, a fraud installed in the Oval Office (and at least two in the Senate), a Reichstag Fire incident used as the pretext to blood-libel Trump and everyone who supported him and now an illegal post-presidency impeachment move to prevent him from running again as well as a concurrent move to purge his Congressional supporters, I predict that FISA is going to be ramped up and expanded as a tool of essentially a neo-Stasi apparatus. The days of "the loyal opposition" are over, my friends. I mean, how can there be a loyal opposition if Trump and his party attempted a violent insurrection on January 6th? (sarc).

The Junta is now going to move fast and furious (no pun, although...) to purge anyone and anything now that dare challenge their authority, on the pretext that to do so is "insurrection." While we're all focused, and rightly so, on the security of our right to bear arms, I would not be surprised if something like Canada's odious, Orwellian "human rights commission" gets fired up on our side of the border as well. I fully expect Mignon "Rump Roast" Clyburn to once again infest the FCC and that Uncle Joe Stolin will deem "net neutrality" as enacted with his crayon and phone. I fully expect, too, that the Supreme Court (packed or not) will not object, that is if anyone dares file a lawsuit. Worse, the GOP wing of the Democrats led by Pee-Air Defecto will be cheering the loudest.

It might behoove all of us who are registered Republican to change that ASAP, for a couple of reasons which should be eminently clear if you've read this far. Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get me.
