The Morning Report - 2/26/21 [J.J. Sefton]


Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and, surprise! America is back, baby. That is, back to sending our troops into harm's way in order to sate the bloodlust of the military industrial complex and their profiteers in the DC junta, regardless to the consequences to our national interest or if our security is even threatened in the first place.

Biden ordered the strikes against facilities near Syria's border with Iraq that the militias use. The Department of Defense (DOD) statement did not specify whether the strikes inflicted casualties beyond the structures. Iranian-backed militias fired rockets at both the U.S. embassy in Baghdad and another U.S. base in Iraq in recent weeks.

"At [so-called quote-uquote] 'President' Biden's direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel," the Department of Defense announced Thursday night."

I ain't no Henry Kissinger, but why in the world if I were the quote-unquote so-called 'president' (nudge nudge wink wink) would I attack the forces of a nation that I am desperately trying to appease by once again doing everything in my power to allow it to manufacture a nuclear weapons arsenal? Could it have something to do perhaps with the fact that at least half of this country is still seething that a national election was stolen? That their livelihoods were destroyed on the pretext of a virus that is now provably marginally more lethal than seasonal flu? That voices of dissent and protest have been silenced and persecuted while the majority of citizens are blood-libeled as unreconstructed, evil subhuman racist traitors and insurrectionists? That our borders are about to be erased as tens of millions of illiterate foreign peasants are set to become first class citizens while the rest of us are relegated to a figurative and possibly literal gulag? That if our children survive nine months in the womb without being sacrificed to Ba'al, Huitzilopochtli and Pazuzu so that their organs can be harvested, or avoid surgical transformation from Boris Karloff into Elsa Lanchester are then brainwashed into hating their heritage, their parents and themselves?

Nah, that's Q-Anon (whatever that is), tinfoil hat, crazy conspiracy talk, that is. Sheesh. One has to wonder if the average Iranian terrorist knows what he may be up against.

The U.S. Navy's reading list for officers and sailors includes books exploring issues in anti-racism and gender politics, potentially overshadowing traditional education in military history and strategy.

Four of the 16 books listed under a section dedicated to personal and leadership development discuss topics such as anti-racism, the criminal justice system, and gender politics. Their titles include Ibram X. Kendi's bestselling How to Be an Antiracist, The New Jim Crow, Sexual Minorities and Politics, and Fed Up: Emotional Labor, Women, and the Way Forward. Kendi's book in particular has garnered significant controversy, with many of its ideas spreading from college campuses to public health institutions and public sector unions.

The 4 books mark a major departure from the other 33 books on the list, which focus on the history of the Navy and naval planning.

Remember that mathematics is racist, which might put artillerymen or the fire control officers on board a warship in a bit of pickle when it comes time to plotting a solution. Then again, they just plug it into the computer... which no doubt will have been programmed by someone who underwent the same training that drummed into his/her/xer head that 2+2 = 5.

Now that transsexuals are allowed to openly serve, here's hoping they get sent right in where it's hot so that the Farsis can get a good long look and thank their lucky Mecca space rock they're facing off against Corporal Klinger and not a bitter-clinger purged long ago from the ranks.

Old and Busted: Lock and Load.
New Hotness: Tuck and Mince.

Be sure to scan all the headlines as there are a number of things of import happening now including the push for the minimum wage increase being nixed in the Senate bill by the parliamentarian, who no doubt will soon get a visit from his local BLaM-tifa welcome wagon.

Have a great weekend.
