The Morning Report - 2/23/21 [J.J. Sefton]

Good morning, kids. Tuesday brings, yet again, more "lies, damned lies, and statistics" from the Enemy as the nation formerly known as the United States of America continues its headlong plunge into the abyss. With the Supreme Court effectively cementing in place the Junta's ability to rig elections in any state it controls by refusing to take up the Pennsylvania case as well as giving the green light for President-in-Exile Trump's tax returns to be bent, folded, stapled and mutilated to fabricate a crime that sends him to prison while wiping him and his entire family out, we now have the confirmation hearing of the quintessential DC bureaucrat, Merrick Garland, who despite the sturm und drang of GOP senators (Josh Hawley notwithstanding) will more than likely wind up at the top of the DoJ. His record, as well as his words even in yesterday's kabuki-bukkake theater of the absurd are alarming in the extreme insofar as he is shaping up to be the Junta's answer to Thomas Torquemada and Roland Freisler.

...The FBI, Garland told the committee, is right to add more agents to root out the threat of far-Right extremism. "We also have to look at what's happening all over the country and where this could spread and where this came from," he said. "It does require a lot of resources..."

What's "happening all over the country" is upwards of 80 million Americans witnessed their votes and then their nation stolen right in front of their eyes. For being ill-mannered enough to point that out, they're going to have to have a rhetorical and if need be literal whack on the knuckles. And, as Garland seems to be alluding, here comes Obama's "internal security force," the one that was supposed to have as much or more funding and manpower than the Defense Department, to do the job. Not that that is really necessary these days when your boss, your colleagues, your neighbors and even your own children can collectively (no pun) put the screws to you to keep your mouth shut and chant with the appropriate zeal "Black Lives Matter," which of course translates as "seig heil" in the original German.

That said, while mobs of organized terrorists from BLM and Antifa rampaged and incinerated dozens of cities with the approval if not at the behest of the Democrat Party from late spring all the way through Election Day of last year with impunity...

More than 200 people already have been arrested, mostly for misdemeanors, and dozens remain behind bars denied bail; federal prosecutors argue defendants with no criminal record nonetheless pose a risk to the community for the thoughtcrime of doubting the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. If confirmed, Garland will take charge of a law enforcement agency that continues to act as the Democratic Party's consigliere rather than as a defender of justice for 330 million citizens regardless of political affiliation. Garland now admits he will place another politically motivated investigation above the legitimate public safety concerns of the American public. "This was the most heinous attack on the democratic processes that I've ever seen and one that I never expected to see in my lifetime," Garland dramatically promised Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). (Wait until he hears about Crossfire Hurricane and FISA warrants.).

Democratic processes my ass. Wait, I take that back; It was an "attack" on the Democrat Party's processes of election stealing, if by the word attack he means legitimate protest. The staged "riot" of BLaM-tifa confederates dressed in MAGA hats either being allowed in to the Capitol building complex by sympathetic/paid off DC Cops notwithstanding.

...Further, Democrats do not want the investigation into January 6 to be focused only on those involved in the melee. Their end goal, once again, is to capture and convict Donald Trump of criminal wrongdoing.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) prodded Garland about whether the Justice Department would look "upstream" to pursue the alleged "ringleaders" behind the chaos -- referring, of course, to President Trump and Garland knew it. "We begin with the people on the ground and work our way up to those . . . who were further involved," the longtime prosecutor said. "We will pursue these leads wherever they take us."

Music, no doubt, to the ears of Democrat lawmakers and the current occupant of the Oval Office.

The narrative about what happened on January 6 continues to fall apart, from phony claims about a "murdered" police officer to an "armed" insurrection. But facts won't stop this investigatory and political freight train from running over anyone in its path, including Americans guilty at most of minor misdemeanors with no prior record now labeled traitors and terrorists. That seems just fine with Merrick Garland.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; there is no such thing as "far-right" extremism because there is no such thing as the far right." I fully reject the Left-Center-Right paradigm as it empowers a tyrannical enemy (the "Left if you will) to wield a false narrative as a means of muzzling criticism. Funny how we never hear about "the far Left." Burning Looting and Murdering of course is allowed because structural racism and toxic whiteness. It is always our side that has to apologize and surrender more and more of our freedoms because of the acts of sickos like Timothy McVeigh whom we share absolutely NOTHING in common with and immediately denounce. Him aside, and with the exception of perhaps no more than a handful of incidents, political violence and extremism is the sole purview and stock-in-trade of Democrats and their allies.

It is particularly rage-inducing when these fiends present themselves as the defenders of truth, justice and the American way when in fact they are human cancer who seek to drag us down for fun and profit. That's why it was rather refreshing and surprising - as well as terrifying - when dyed-in-the-wool leftist Naomi Wolf sounds the alarm bell:

Tucker [Carlson] was stunned -- as were those of us who know Naomi -- to hear her give a fluent, impassioned disquisition on American liberties and the threats they're facing as states and Biden use them to grab permanent power.

Wolf asserts that what we are witnessing in America "is not a partisan thing." Instead, "it transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution." Gathering steam, she told Tucker:

The state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies ... which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement, fining us in New York state ... the violations go on and on.

She's right, too. According to Wolf, totalitarian dictatorships always start the same way.

Whether they are on the left or the right, they do these same ten things and now we're at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime ... it is step 10 and that is the suspension of the rule of law and that is when you start to be a police state, and we're here. There is no way around it.

Wolf then sounded an ominous warning: "I really hope we wake up quickly because history also shows that it's a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back." She's right about that, too.

Anyone who is not taking the Democrats seriously - especially after everything we have witnessed this past year, and even way before that - is sticking their head in the sand. When you can be fired from your job for openly stating men are men and women are women, or that abortion is murder or that there's no such thing as institutional racism, guess what: you will be considered part of "the far right" and as such potentially come under the thumb of Merrick Garland's Stasi. When the Enemy controls the language and now the apparatus for not only creating laws but enforcing them, then we are all extremists now.
