The Morning Report - 5/12/21 [J.J. Sefton]


Good morning kids. Wednesday and look what happens when you steal an election and install the most toxic combination of evil and incompetence this nation - no longer the United States of America - has ever had to endure. Beyond our own borders, the ones that haven't been erased yet, where we are rapidly becoming a totalitarian Orwellian nightmare, the world is coming apart at the seams. Once again, it's the perpetual hotspot of the Middle East that's erupting.

Not only is the State of Israel under a barrage of rocket attacks across its length and breadth, its own Arab citizenry have joined the so-called mythical "Palestinians" in attacking Jews and torching synagogues in a country where they are citizens. While there is no doubt that much if not all of this has been orchestrated and directed from Tehran, it is revelatory nonetheless of the Muslim mindset. This would not have happened had Trump not been overthrown last November.

Israel now faces probably its most serious crisis since perhaps 1973 or even 1948 when it declared statehood. You could go so far as to call it an existential one if you start looking at the chess board and the potential moves. The situation is made that much more serious since the current junta occupying DC and the political party behind it is openly hostile, to say the least, against the Jewish state. In a sane, rational world, the IDF should not even hesitate to bulldoze Gaza into the Mediterranean, with due apologies to the marine ecosystem for befouling the waters with waste more toxic than plutonium. Then there's the rather ticklish problem of dealing with a large chunk of your own citizenry who are committing acts of violent insurrection and terrorism against their own neighbors. Gee, doesn't this sound familiar.

Psaki-Psircling back, what this is is Iran both retaliating for Soleimani getting whacked and the recent Jewish lightning strike on Natanz, as well as more crucially testing the strength of the Abraham Accords. The question is, were Israel to pulverize Gaza, as would be well within its right to do, now that Trump is out of the picture would that action fracture the ties between Israel, the UAE, Bahrain and the other signatories, as well as imperil the Saudis and others from joining? One thing that the Accords revealed was that there was no love lost between the signatories and the "Palestinians." But, you have to believe that any action, legitimate as it obviously would be, taken against Arab Israelis by the Netanyahu government might rip up those accords faster than Malig-Nancy Pelosi with Trump's SOTU speech.

Iran, of course, is the key to all of this. It's gambling Israel's actions will destroy the Abraham Accords and further alienate the former United States and the rest of the world. But what if Israel realizes this, as it of course does, and instead of pounding Gaza pounds Tehran? Or Fordow, Bushehr or some other nuke site? Then there are the Chi-Coms and Russians to deal with since they have both cozied up to the Farsis since Trump was illegally removed from office.

This is what is known in the trade as a "situation." In other words, Ho Lee Fook.

Meanwhile back over in this little corner of the planet, the totalitarian nature of the junta in power is in direct proportion to its incompetence. Look on the bright side; with gasoline prices skyrocketing thanks to a sabotaged pipeline (I would not put it past this junta to have caused the shutdown in order to declare another "crisis" as pretext to implement the abolition of fossil fuels), at least BLaM-tifa won't have materials for Molotov cocktails. Not that there's much of any city left to burn that wasn't torched since last year. In that vein, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a woman for whom I have the utmost respect and admiration penned an editorial in the NY Post that just so completely misses the mark that it's shocking, to me anyway:

In the end, because of such protracted tribal tensions, Somalia collapsed into civil war. Every attempt at mediation proved incapable of handling the deep-seated mistrust and hatred that accumulated by each clan over the years; tribal elders, reluctant to compromise, could not de-escalate the situation. With such high levels of distrust, the conflict spiraled into bloodshed.

While such violence has yet to seize America, all the tribalist ingredients are present. There is a blind commitment to one party or the other; emotions are running high; there is a lack of trust in civic institutions. If such tribalism isn't overcome, it's only a matter of time before the situation escalates...

...We are, I fear, close to the precipice of serious destabilization. Many American cities are either militarized (Washington, DC), near a social boiling point (Minneapolis), or have capitulated to anarchist protests and pressures (Portland, Seattle). These tribal quirks run deep on both sides of the aisle. Many Republicans continue to dispute the legitimacy of the result of the last presidential election; while on the left, the woke are eroding the Democratic Party from the inside, as identity politics displace universalist aspirations. Some citizens are viewed as part of oppressive groups, some as part of oppressed groups. A person's individual actions can generally do little to change the immutable characteristics of the tribe to which they belong.

Emphasis mine. Ms. Ali, with all due respect, RUFKM? First, the evidence, both circumstantial and solid, is so overwhelming and massive that the only conclusion one can draw was that the 2020 election was compromised in the run-up and then stolen outright on the night of. That's just for starters. The thing that sends me into a rage-stroke is accepting the premise that there is any moral equivalency between American-Americans (my new hyphenated minority group) and the Left. This is as ludicrous as claiming equivalency between you and the head-choppers and clit-clippers in Somalia (and Minnesota) that had no problem forcing you into a life of brutality and misery that you decided, at the risk of your own life, to flee.

This is not a state of civil war where Bele and Lokai are throttling each other on the bridge of the Enterprise. We have an illegitimate tyranny attempting to establish permanent control over a majority of citizens via the use of the power of the state coupled with the raw power of sanctioned street thuggery and violence. That's what happened in dozens of urban areas across the former USA last year. It's moral equivalents would be Rwanda, Yugoslavia, Nazi Germany and in the streets of Lod in Israel. For you, after all you have seen and lived (barely) through, with death threats and fatwas still on your head, to write this drivel about moral equivalency and clans is beyond tone deaf. It's shameful.
