The Morning Report - 8/2/21


Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and a new month but of course it's the same old shit. Yes the ramping up of fear over a virus that is fractionally more deadly than seasonal flu and the persecution and censorship of all political opposition to the demented pervert and his puppet masters who stole the 2020 election and installed him in a high chair behind the Resolute Desk. But in this case, it's a golden oldie: Multi-thousand-page spending bills written by lobbyists, criminals, degenerates and other grifters looking to raid whatever crumbs are left in the Treasury to be used to further dismantle our society or merely as embellishment.

I'm talking of course about this insane "Infrastructure" bill which has about as much to do with funding the construction of dictionary-definition infrastructure as Shaun King has to do with being a dictionary-definition colored person of color.

If the United States Senate votes this week on the bipartisan so-called "infrastructure" bill, it would be humanly impossible for any U.S. senator to read it before voting on it.

Sources familiar with the drafting of the text of this bill told Breitbart News it was being written in secret for months outside the normal legislative process, which is supposed to happen in relevant committees of jurisdiction. These sources made the unauthorized leak of the draft text to Breitbart News out of concern that the murky and secretive process behind this bill may have led to widespread corruption throughout its nearly three thousand pages.

The text of a draft of the bill, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News from U.S. Senate sources not authorized to leak it, shows the plan is 2,701 pages long. . .

. . . Senate proponents of the proposal released the final text of the legislation late Sunday evening after this Breitbart News publication, and the final bill text is almost exactly the same as the near-final draft provided to Breitbart News as an unauthorized leak from Congress earlier in the evening. The final bill is only one page longer at 2,702 pages.

Breitbart seems to have the exclusive on this as of this morning and here are some of the goodies it found:

Bipartisan 'Infrastructure' Bill Allows Feds to Bypass 'Buy American' Rules, Outsource U.S. Manufacturing

'Infrastructure' Bill Caters to 'Climate Change' with State-Mandated Carbon Reduction Programs

Infrastructure Bill Contains Billions for Border Crossings; $0 for Border Wall

Infrastructure Bill Will 'Study' Job Losses from Canceling Keystone XL, Without Restoring It

And of course, this observation from the estimable Joel Pollak:

When Trump Wanted Infrastructure, Democrats -- and Establishment Republicans -- Blocked Him

Bingo. You can bet your sweet ass that all sorts of graft and grift are being shoved into the maw of goniffing pigs like Collins, Portman, Tillis, the Alaskan Snowblower, the Maine Pain and Pee-Air Defecto to get them on board. Honestly, with everything else going on is borrowing and spending several trillion dollars more that we don't have, on things we either don't need or will make our lives only marginally more miserable than they will be given the trajectory we're already on, really worth getting our collective Irish up about?

Funny, as in tragic, how the usual talking-while-empty-heads always bemoan "gridlock" in Congress, being completely clueless about the fact that the framers intentionally made the enactment of laws - and especially spending and taxation - as difficult as possible. You were responsible to the people who elected you to represent them and so advise and consent, give and take, and compromise while adhering to prudence, ethics and morality meant that it would often take at the least weeks if not months to finally craft a bill, usually no more than a couple of pages in length, that would be ready for the president to enact. That is if he did not veto it. The Senate was known as the greatest deliberative body for a reason. The aim was not to cavalierly enact legislation for the hell of it, and certainly not for self-aggrandizement.

Okay, you all can stop laughing at me now. At the end of the day, as I consider the last vestiges of America as founded dead and gone as of last January 6th, I don't necessarily give a damn. Let the Cloward-Piven collapse come quickly. But that said, there may be things buried deep on page 837 or 1,455 that repeal the 2nd Amendment, the 9th and 10th, and even the 1st. You can bet there's phraseology in there such as was in Obamacare or that hideous Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that sets up permanent politburos that cannot be defunded or dismantled and give the apparatchiks unlimited power with phrases like "at the Secretary's discretion" or whatever crap was in those aforementioned travesties.

But there is one ray of hope, dim as it may be. This is the Senate bill, which has to be reconciled with the version from the House. And it's now all but open warfare between the Left hand and the Far Left hand as the latter is being strident in killing the bill entirely if it does not get 100% of its demands. Titty Caca AOC is leading the charge against her geriatric overlords:

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that there were "more than enough" votes to prevent the bipartisan infrastructure bill from passing the House without the much larger bill that Democrats want to pass with the reconciliation process.

Anchor Jake Tapper said, "You just heard Joe Manchin a few moments ago talk about the reconciliation bill, $3.5 trillion. He said he can't give him any guarantee it would pass the Senate. what's your response to that?"

Ocasio-Cortez said, "These deals on infrastructure that have gone out are not just bipartisan, but they were bicameral. . . It was made very clear at the beginning of this process that this bipartisan deal if it even survives the Senate, the only chance that it has at passing the House is if the House passes the Senate bill and if the Senate passes the House bill, which is largely in reconciliation. So we can't just have one body driving the entire legislative agenda for the country and, frankly, 20 senators within that one body. So we need a reconciliation bill if we want this bipartisan bill to pass."

Of course she and the other brain damaged psychos in her orbit are pissed because everyone at the bargaining table is white. That's their big concern. Sheesh. In any case it now looks like open warfare between her and Malig-Nancy Pelosi, and the Biden Junta itself. The focus of her ire was the moratorium on evictions relating to the Chinese COVID situation expiring:

"Who's to blame here?" Tapper asked.

"First of all, you are absolutely correct, in that the House and House leadership had the opportunity to vote to extend the moratorium. And there were many and there was, frankly, a handful of conservative Democrats in the House that threatened to get on planes rather than hold this vote," she responded. "And we have to really just call a spade a spade. We cannot in good faith blame the Republican Party when House Democrats have a majority."

"Now, there is something to be said for the fact that this court order came down on the White House a month ago, and the White House waited until the day before the House adjourned to release a statement asking on Congress to extend the moratorium," AOC continued. "This came after weeks. I sit on the Financial Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over housing. We had the housing secretary there, asking about the administration stance. We asked the Biden administration about their stance. And they were not being really forthright about that advocacy and that request until the day before the House adjourned."

Whoa. She just fired a shot across the bow of the Big Guy. In any case, it would be ironic indeed if this entire fiasco were torpedoed by the Maoists. They just don't seem to get or want to play the game as it's been played - to the detriment of the taxpayers - since forever. Dems make demands and the GOP makes compromises so that the Dems get like 90% of what they want and the GOP gets to make excuses. Whatever the outcome this time, it will be a strong indicator of who now controls the whip hand of the Democrat Party.

Anyway, as this garbage floats at the top of the bowl, the undercurrent of unrest and anger over the re-institution of masking and lockdowns and vaccine passports continues. It's pissing people off all over the world and that anger is hitting our shores. Let's see if Alex Mayorkas can turn it back like he did the Cuban refugees. Sorry for the metaphor-mixing. The linkapalooza awaits so have at it.
