The Morning Report - 9/15/21

Good morning, kids. Wednesday and a quote attributed to the great 18th century British writer Samuel Johnson comes to mind in the wake of Gavin Newsom's recall. Upon hearing of a widower about to be remarried soon after the death of his first wife to whom he had been unhappily wed, Johnson remarked that it was "the triumph of hope over experience." On the face of it, Newsom is projected to have beat the recall effort handily. Yet, all things considered and in my opinion he "cheated the beat."

Sour grapes? After everything we witnessed last November 3rd and in the run up to that horrible day, I am never going to look at any election ever again and blindly assume it's even minimally fair, honest and above board. Especially in any city or state controlled by the Left. In fact, it is axiomatic that the longer and deeper a government is controlled by Democrats/Leftists, the more likely that an election will be rigged in their favor, regardless of the size of the majority they have. Here's the most irritating observation I've seen so far from A.J. Kaufman at PJ Media:

Gov. Gavin Newson survived a feisty California recall election Tuesday night the only way he could: by stoking fear, vilifying opponents, and adding in some bigotry.

Having piloted a failing state into the ground, Newsom could not run on his record, so he and his acolytes simply attacked Republican frontrunner Larry Elder and former President Donald Trump.

Absolutely true. But here's where old A.J. goes off the rails.

Trump gave Democrats an opening when he claimed Monday, "Does anybody really believe the California Recall Election isn't rigged? Millions and millions of Mail-In Ballots will make this just another giant Election Scam, no different, but less blatant, than the 2020 Presidential Election Scam!"

Much like when Democrats won two crucial Georgia U.S. Senate elections in January, Newsom appeared thrilled that Trump inserted himself into the race, as liberals believe the former president keeps suburban moderates in their tent, especially in California.


Oh please, give me a freaking break. Considering Georgia was one of the epicenters of the fraud that installed Biden in the White House, especially with the collusion after the fact of the state's Republican governor, secretary of state and legislature, to then claim those two senate seats were won fair and square in the runoffs also because OrangeManBad was fighting for his life and perhaps the life of whatever vestige of the nation remained, is an insult. As for California, despite having a 2-1 margin or more of Dems to GOPer voters - more than likely including untold thousands of illegal aliens - I think that the 2020 presidential race was a lot closer than reported. We'll never know, of course but localized corruption went national that year in the wake of the Beijing Breathing Blight COVID-19 psy-op.

Yes, gentle reader. It's deja vu all over again. Mail-in voting, which even banana republics and the UN reject as crucial for election theft, in a virtually top-to-bottom Democrat-controlled state that has devolved over the past 20 years into a de-facto banana republic, made Newsom's "win" pre-ordained. By the way, a commenter (maybe a troll, maybe not) dropped a little note yesterday after we had moved on to the Art Thread in which he/she/it was affronted by my referring to California as Tijada on the Pacific.

An easy example of how little sense you make, "...the sleazy, pompous, brilliantine criminal dictator of what is arguably now a third world Latin American banana republic will more than likely retain his stranglehold on what once was the Golden State."

If California were an independent country it would be the fifth-largest economy in the world, by definition a 1st world country. OTOH, West Virginia would be the 110th economy between Guatemala and Syria(!).

As I replied...

"WAS the 6th largest economy. Importing third world replacement serfs while the tax base flees is not a recipe for long term growth. And comparing what WAS the Golden State to W VA is apples and oranges. California is on the road to ruin. When a handful of [insanely] wealthy residents lord over a nearly vanished middle class and a majority of people at or near the poverty line, that is a third world banana republic by any definition of the term. Want a real comparison? Here: California and Venezuela. Look at the history of the latter, especially everything [that has transpired] since the installation of Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro. You are heading there at warp speed, and dragging us down with it.

Add to this the fact that Newsom will now double, triple and quadruple down on his "emergency" edicts, be it for Chinese COVID vaccines or anything else he can dream up in the name of "safety," meaning the safety of his and his party's perpetual hold on power, he's going to do it. If nothing else, that right there is dictionary definition banana republicanism. And as we all know, as goes California eventually so goes the nation.

Meh, I've spent more time on this than I wanted to but I guess it means there was more to say than I had thought. Newsom surviving in no way shape or form IMHO reflects on the discontent of a growing segment of the citizenry there and across the nation. Elections do have consequences, rigged or otherwise. The vaccine mandates, which is Biden's handlers' attempt to distract and bury the greatest disaster in American foreign policy history, which will have ramifications for us and the free world for decades to come if not a century or more, are backfiring on him and anyone who supports them. If that is the spark that somehow awakens and unites disparate people, even for a short while, against this tyranny, then so be it.

According to a Twitter feed from Leeroy Johnson, a group of MAGA and BLM activists joined together to demonstrate outside the Manhattan home of New York State Assembly member Linda Rosenthal, who is sponsoring a bill to make Covid vaccinations mandatory. Johnson identified himself as an "independent photographer" and says that he takes no sides.

Here is his tweet with film of the smallish demonstrations, followed by MAGA and BLM activists identifying themselves and speaking of their joint effort:

Black Lives Matter and MAGA activists team up in solidarity and are both upset about the mandatory vaccine bill NY state legislator Linda Rosenthal put in. Protesters were outside Linda's home yelling NO FORCED VACCINE

Filmed and owned by Leeroy Johnson
#CovidVaccine #blm #MAGA

. . . I don't think there is much that Dems can do to assuage the suspicions of many Blacks, rooted as they are in bitter history. But they have also committed themselves to forcing vaxes on the public -- and demonizing Republicans, Trump voters, and Fox News viewers. If they keep on pushing that line, they risk driving some African Americans toward checking out the very groups the Dems want to demonize.

Politics does indeed make for strange bedfellows, perhaps none stranger than this. That or it's a VERY wide mattress. Considering BLM is a Marxist front group, hell not even a front group but openly avowed Marxist, I don't expect this marriage to last, or that it's even no more than an anecdotal incident. But that said, the fact that it did happen should not be discounted out of hand. The key is somehow finding the supertanker filled with 100 octane aviation fuel to put on this spark and the other little sparks just like this that have got to be out there.

Meanwhile, there's this abomination that would have otherwise been lost in the sauce, that just jumped out and kicked me in the teeth:

Sidhartha Kumar Mathur, 35, of West Friendship, Maryland, threatened to kill GOP Rep. Andy Harris and his family. His punishment? Mathur will be spending the next eight weekends in jail. That's 16 weekend days for threatening to kill a member of Congress. He will conveniently be done in time for Thanksgiving. Then Mathur has to stay home for six months. He must do 100 hours of community service and will be on probation for two years.In December 2020, Rep. Harris, who represents Maryland's Eastern Shore, was one of 126 House Republicans who supported the Texas lawsuit that sought to overturn President Biden's election victory. The Supreme Court later rejected the lawsuit.

Mathur didn't approve of Harris' involvement in the lawsuit and let his congressman know.

"I know where you and your family lives. You will be ended," Mathur wrote to Harris via the congressman's website. He wrote that Harris is an "animal that needs to be tortured and skinned alive."

Two minutes after sending the message, Mathur left a voicemail at Harris' Maryland office in which he threatened to slit the congressman's throat and kill his family "if you even mess with my vote," prosecutors stated. . .

. . . We can only wonder what would happen if a white guy in a MAGA hat threatened to skin AOC, slit her throat, and slaughter her family.

Mathur's simple sentence was handed down by Judge Richard D. Bennet, a Republican appointed by George W. Bush.

The sentence was announced by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Jonathan F. Lenzner and Chief Tom Manger of the United States Capitol Police.

The same Capitol Police keeping Trump supporters in solitary confinement? Hmm...

Mathur was also caught lying to federal investigators and still got a lenient sentence. Gen. Flynn was busted for "lying" to the feds, and Robert Mueller wanted Flynn sent to prison for it.

But California, hell America, isn't a banana republic, and Trump inserted himself into elections and lost them for us. And he also said "pussy!" Well, at least no more mean Tweets, right A.J. Kaufman?
