The Morning Report - 2/10/21 [J.J. Sefton]


Good morning, kids. Wednesday and the farcical debasement of the rule of law and any semblance of justice, political comity and fairness that were (or what we chose to believe) the hallmarks of the American way is the top story. And honestly, I could not really care less about it. About the only useful things yesterday's proceedings demonstrated were the complete immorality and criminality of the Democrat-run junta and yet more confirmation in the form of the six GOP Senators who voted to declare this sham kosher as confederates of the aforementioned tyrants now ruling the nation (for lack of a better word).

Merkin-pated louse Jamie Raskin farting out all he likes about how impeaching a private citizen and removing him from an office he no longer holds is completely constitutional does not and never will make it so. Add into the mix the doctored tapes of the "riot," the omission of PIEOTUS Trump's own words, which never once urged anyone to be anything but peaceful and respectful, and the fact that the foul fossilized Patrick Leahy is acting as both the judge and a key prosecutor in the trial and the whole thing just reeks to high heaven. Well, congratulations fools; you're about to turn Donald Trump into a cross between Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela to about 200 million very angry people. And that anger will blossom into a taste for vengeance once energy is no longer cheap, work no longer available, food no longer plentiful, and our mouths rhetorically (or otherwise) wired shut to silence our displeasure.

All of this is also sadly revelatory about where we are as a society. The last vestiges of America as founded were mortally wounded on the night of November 3rd, finished off on January 6th and cremated on January 20th. We're now at the salting-of-the-earth-where-it-once-stood-phase, not only with this but with the purging from the public square anyone and anything that dares oppose our subjugation at the hands of the globalists and ultimately the Red Chinese.

On that score, one of the more troubling actions is the complete purging of the military on the pretext of weeding out so-called "white supremacists" in the ranks. Translation, anyone who would swear allegiance to the Constitution of the nation formerly know as the United States of America and refuse to carry out any order that contravenes the letter and spirit of that document.

One of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's first actions after confirmation has been to order a "60 day stand down" to combat extremism. This follows the widespread and mostly baseless establishment fantasy that "right-wing extremists" and "white supremacists" are running rampant and pose some immediate threat to the country.

The details and definitions will ultimately determine whether this campaign is a sensible one that is in keeping with the Constitution or ends up being a purge of the overwhelmingly conservative ranks of the military. No reasonable person would object to removing dangerous and disloyal people from the service, but such a limited goal is distinct from punishing those with merely dissenting and idiosyncratic views. For example, a recent briefing among the Army's Special Forces singled out Pepe the Frog and the Gadsden Flag as signs of extremism. These popular symbols -- one an historical American flag -- are widely embraced among the mainstream Right...

... Rural, white, conservative, and Christian American men make up the bulk of America's warrior class. They predominate in dangerous combat units, and intergenerational traditions of service are common. In spite of these traditions, the message from the culture, as well as political leaders, to such people is plain: Your day is done. You will be second-class citizens. And you are suspect.

What will happen to the American military if this warrior class chooses not to serve a political regime that labels them obstacles to the goals of equity and inclusion? What will motivate them if such service becomes morally ambiguous and less supported within their own communities?...

...While all the talk of a "coming civil war" is frequently overwrought, it is undeniable that the country is wracked by partisan disagreements, and that the party in power has stated rather explicitly that it believes it is facing some kind of insurgency.

The most elementary principle of counterinsurgency is that force alone cannot succeed. A government under pressure must address the grievances of the insurgents and their communities -- i.e., win "hearts and minds." Tightening the screws as hard as possible ends up being counterproductive, as regime overreach creates new insurgents motivated by a combination of revenge and hopelessness.

An increasingly hostile ruling class, who conceive of themselves as occupying a disloyal, irredentist America, is, unfortunately, a formula for weakness abroad and conflict at home.

This is perhaps one of the more frightening developments since the rigged election and the overthrow of the government. And that's saying something because every single part of the massive Leviathan that controls our lives is being dismantled, rejiggered and put on steroids. Now that said, it seems to me that the Marxist Junta is in a real pickle with this. On one hand, the old guard greedy power mad goons like Malig-Nancy Pelosi as well as the GOP-e warmongers like Liz-Ard Cheney are in bed with the military industrial complex; they need endless wars to keep the defense contractors in the chips and donating on K-Street. But on the other, the hardcore full-on freaks of the Code Pinko set have a traditional hate on for anything and everything military.

So, if the ranks are purged of experienced and competent soldiers and officers, there still aren't enough transexual freaks looking for a headline or Shillsbury Doughboy Vindmans to take their place. Will it be the Democrats who push for a draft? That would be hilarious, were I not right now weeping for the nation formerly known as the USA.

As far as the seeds of an anti-regime insurrectionist army, there are already 200 million citizens armed with two to three times as many firearms and who knows how much ammunition. I think that that is what keeps the Enemy Junta up at night. If a cadre of purged officers like Mike Flynn were ever able to organize even a fraction of that number...

I think I just gave myself a stiffie.
