The Morning Report - 3/16/21 [J.J. Sefton]


Good morning, kids. Tuesday and while we're all preoccupied with what the left hand is doing, and rightly so, with the geront-ocide committed by Angel of Death Cuomo as well as the other four dictatorial Democrat governors, plus the persecution of peaceful law-abiding citizens who did nothing but show up at the Capitol to protest the stolen election, and the silencing of all voices of dissent to the official stories coming out of the Junta on those and other issues, the far left hand is getting ready to commit no-less horrendous acts of necrophilia on the moldering corpse of the nation formerly known as the United States of America:

On March 11, [Bro-Fo Omar/Nur/Burqawitz/Ikeelyou] introduced H.R. 1847, a bill "To suspend obligations of residential renters and mortgagors to make payments during the [Chinese] COVID-19 emergency, and for other purposes." So far only a draft of the text is available.

Essentially, the bill says that real property tenants can stop paying their landlords. Our country was not founded on the moral code that one is not responsible for one's obligations and debts. However, these socialists would make it so.

The communism begins to sneak in in Sec. 5(e), where priority for landlord reimbursement is tiered based on income. Non-profit owners and those with the fewest assets get the highest priority.

Rental property owners get totally trashed if they own a multi-family (five or more dwelling units) structure (Sec. 7). For five years, they cannot sell or transfer their property -- presumably, this includes transfers via a trust to one's heirs -- without the permission of HUD, which will notify all eligible purchasers that the property is available. This is a prima facie violation of the Commerce Clause of the Constitution.

The first right of purchase will go to non-profit or other such housing organizations, at a sale price that HUD approves. We the People... er, sorry, HUD will pay for this housing. We will also pay for operations and maintenance costs, seemingly in perpetuity (Sec. 7(f)(2)). Nothing in this draft bill prevents these guv-funded purchasers from turning around and selling the property. There's no reimbursement provision at all. Not a bad gig, but on the other hand....

New owners of multi-family facilities face life-of-the-facility-long restrictions, including no refusing housing based on criminal history or immigration status (Sec. 7(d)(4)). Hide your teenage daughters, you other tenants, because that means that these private, public, or quasi-governmental organizations must rent to MS-13 if they show up at the door. This provision also abrogates the short-term public charge requirements of immigration law for most legal immigrants -- a feature of immigration statutes that pre-dates Trump, going back to 1882...

...Her bill is a trap to get We the People to pay for everyone's housing and it's the opening gambit to bring all housing under the control of the federal government.

Anyone want to bet that this flagrant Communist seizure of private property won't pass the Senate, let alone the House? This not unrelated story should put aside any doubts whatsoever:

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin said the legislative filibuster had "become the death grip of democracy" during a speech on the Senate floor Monday.

"The truth is, as filibusters and threatened filibusters have increased in recent decades, real debate and bipartisan cooperation have plummeted," Durbin said. "Today's filibuster is often used to prevent the Senate from even starting to debate important ideas. It's not the guarantor of democracy. It has become the death grip of democracy."

Even if it passes and gets signed into law, thank goodness we always have the Supreme Court to nix this catastrophe. And if you believe that, I have a bridge over the East River to sell you, cheap. That is if HUD doesn't make me use it to house illegal aliens. Beyond the fact that to this day Dick Turdbin refuses to answer any questions about his apparent close relationship with would-be mass assassin James Hodgkinson, his willful ignorance of the fact that we are not a democracy (or at lest were not until January 6th of this year) but a representative republic, the filibuster is one of those rules that is supposed to ensure that legislation wildly unpopular with the citizenry that has the effect of radically affecting the nation is prevented from being made law hastily, in the heat of the moment, without considerable time to debate it on the merits. Well, that quaint and obviously racist/white supremacist/insurrectionist notion went out the window with multi-thousand page bills enacted at midnight on Christmas eve with no one reading through them.

These two items fit hand in glove and by themselves on any normal day would be top stories in an honest media. Well, suffice it to say that I consider this here site honest media. And that scares the shit out of me because everyone who has a byline and quite probably everyone who has ever posted a comment is on the radar of Bob from the NSA. Not the commenter but some real live Bob from the real live NSA. Look what they are doing to several hundred innocent, patriotic, law abiding citizens who had the gall to exercise their Constitutional rights to protest the most massive injustice ever inflicted on them, the theft of a national election and the overthrow of a legitimate government. Along with Derek Chauvin, Kyle Rittenhouse, those guys from Michigan who committed the crime of bitching about Wretched Whitmer and now two saps being set up by the FBI for allegedly causing DC police officer Brian Sicknick's death because of bear spray, the dragnet will no doubt be cast further and wider as time goes on and as more and more failure and misery is inflicted on us via this evil, illegitimate junta.

And you better watch what you say in front of neighbors, coworkers and even family members; any of them who are leftist pod people will rat you out in a heartbeat. That is perhaps the most hateful and depressing thing of all. But, we can never know the future. While what I just mentioned makes an already immensely powerful tyranny that much more effective, no one is infallible. They're human, at least on paper. Their inability to see us as fellow human beings and their inflexibility in their dogma is an Achilles heel that somehow, some way, in some event yet unseen will lead to their downfall. When that happens, or if we will be caught in the undertow is the question.
