The Morning Report - 1/28/21 [J.J. Sefton]


Good morning, kids. Thursday and I'm not going to lie to you. Things are getting bleaker by the day, and we're only eight days into what is for all intents and purposes an illegal, criminal junta. With the stroke of a few dozen crayons, Joe Stolin has wiped out thousands of jobs with the shuttering of Keystone XL, which will multiply exponentially as the blast wave hits the rest of the economy, ditto for canceling of drilling and mining permits on public lands, halted the construction of the necessary and effective border wall, and sending what's left of our demoralized and abused men and women, and now Frankenstein monster hermaphrodites and other psychotic freaks and other bitter Klingers who make Dame Edna look like Chesty Puller into various and sundry third world meat grinders for no other reason than to keep Raytheon and TRW stocks pumped. Would be fitting if the same Wall Street corporatists and cronies got the Game Stop treatment as well, but I digress.

That and so much more in only one week was the hobnailed jackboot to the groin. Now comes the stomp on the head. Political persecution and punishment of any and all voices of opposition. Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage Mag:

The difference between resistance and sedition, between protests and insurrections, is who's in charge. Democrats resist Republican elected officials. Republicans however commit sedition against Democrat elected officials. Democrats protest, Republicans riot. These aren't distinctions in law. The only real distinction is who's in power and who's on the barricades.

Political hypocrisy isn't a new phenomenon, but Democrats weaponizing the national security state to suppress the political opposition over the same behavior they engage in is a serious threat to the survival of the United States as anything other than a banana republic in a civil war.

The Democrats fired the first shot when the Obama administration used the national security system to target members of Congress during its time in office and then, in an election year, went after President Trump's associates based on Hillary Clinton's opposition research.

Instead of being held accountable for abusing national security to target their political opponents, Democrats, their media, and their allies in the system doubled down with fake investigations of the same worthless allegations that they never managed to substantiate.

After four years of falsely claiming that President Trump was a Russian agent and that the 2016 election had somehow been rigged with Facebook ads in an event that was worse than 9/11, the Democrats have pivoted to claiming that questioning the 2020 election is worse than 9/11.

Now the old abuse of the national security state under the guise of hunting down the evidence that Republicans had rigged the 2016 election has turned into abusing the national security state to punish Republicans for suggesting that the Democrats had rigged the 2020 election.

The only consistent thing here is the Democrat abuse of national security to target their political opponents while magically transforming election skepticism from the highest form of patriotism to sedition, and riots from a moral crusade into a major threat because they are now in power.

Well, you can't have a Great Reset without an even greater deprogramming of wrong-think. Victor Davis Hanson in American Greatness:

Retired General Stanley McChrystal warns that the Trump movement reminds him of the al-Qaeda terrorists who once flocked to a similar "powerful leader--presumably Osama bin Laden.

Indeed, our retired military, once critical of the use of the military as domestic police, had no objection to deploying nearly 30,000 soldiers on Inauguration Day in the capital--all on the lookout for nests of Trump insurrectionists.

So Pentagon budgets perhaps should readapt to this reality. What good are missiles and jets when NRA members with MAGA hats roam freely in our midst?

To help McChrystal and Austin, we could enlist former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, and former DNI director James Clapper to form a Deprogramming Task Force to root out the "enemies within."

Public spirited administration appointees--working closely with Silicon Valley, Wall Street, Hollywood, and New York media elites--might issue lists of all social media users indulging in "hate speech" and "big lies."

As both of these great writers note, much of the apparatus of "deprogramming" America in service to its "fundamental transformation" was put in place or ramped up starting with Obama. In truth, the real deprogramming took place over the course of the past 50 or more years in our schools, where two to three generations of American children were brainwashed into hating their country, society, culture and parents. Now, they are in every corporate boardroom, factory floor, business, union hall, military unit, police force and of course classroom across the country.

If you want to call it a ray of hope, the confusion over the impeachment and removal from office of Donald Trump, who has already been removed from office, evidently is going to go forward. Cuck Schemer is clucking his blasphemous chicken lips in lowlife Brooklynese that the trial will go forward. Ultimately, though aside from the five scum traitors on the GOP-wing side of the Senate, there will not be nearly enough votes to reach the two-thirds majority to convict.

No matter, it's all for show. When they go after Trump - in or out of office - they are going after you. Let them. Go ahead Schemer. Turn Donald Trump into Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi or more appropriately Natan Scharansky and Andrei Sakharov. Do that and you stoke a fire that is ultimately going to consume you and your ilk.

That fire is going to be something to see. Let it burn. Make it burn. Until then, the beatings will continue until morale improves.
