The Morning Report - 9/30/21

Good morning, kids. Thursday and honestly, with everything else that is happening, it seems almost pointless and stupid to get all excited about the seeming collapse of both this infrastructure bill and the insane socialist transformation bill. For all intents and purposes, despite the transparent illusion that "republican democracy" and "robust debate in the world's greatest deliberative body" continuing to be played out to the masses, it is indeed a sham. Our governmental system is a corrupt, one-party bureaucratic state, now rapidly devolving into a totalitarian tyranny. We can no longer delude ourselves otherwise; the truth is now out in the open, having been exposed to millions and confirmed to millions more by President-in-Exile Trump. Frankly, there are more than a few links that scare the hell out of me for their implications to each and every one of us.

First, while Vanilli Milley, a fat, fruit salad-festooned fraud who makes Idi Amin look like Audie Murphy, struts, preens and crows about his alleged patriotism by declaring Trump to be Hitler (and worse, colluding with Malig-Nancy Pelosi to seize power a la Gen. Jack D. Ripper), we have the horrendous story of a real officer, gentleman and patriot declared an "enemy of the people" and chucked into the Garland Archipelago to rot alongside the scores of others still rotting there as January 6th political prisoners.

Stu Scheller Sr. and Cathy Scheller, parents of Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, spoke out against the U.S. Military's decision to throw their son in the brig after he spoke out against military leadership over President Joe Biden's Afghanistan pullout.

Cathy Scheller said that they don't know what the charges are against their son, although Stu Scheller Sr. suggested that it was tied to his son's decision to break a gag order that he was under.

"Probably a week or two ago, or maybe it was a week ago, they put him under a gag order. They took away his right to post, to talk on social media, to email, to text," Stu Scheller Sr. told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. "He shared it with America. And he knew this weekend, when he posted again and he broke his silence, that they were probably going to arrest him on Monday. So, he is a very intelligent man. He understands what's going to happen to him."

"And I said last night on a program, Tucker, his crime was speaking truth to power, and power couldn't handle it."

Right there is a quote-of-the-year contender, not just about this issue but about the entirety of the madness consuming us. From the sacred we now go to the profane, in the form of former Obama apparatchik Kathleen "Supercilious" Sebelius:

Sebelius said, "I think what [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Biden has done is -- [blah, blah, blah, blah, verbal boilerplate fellatio of Biden's shriveled yutzick, etc.] -- But what people don't have a right to do is make other people sick, put other people in jeopardy, risk other people's lives, risk children's lives. So I think the [so-called quote-unquote "president"] has been walking a line of balancing science and safety and security at every step along the way. Hoping that the mass majority of the American public would follow that lead."

She added, "It's a lot like secondhand smoke. You have a right to be a smoker. The science is very clear what smoking will do to you, what cancer will be caused, what kinds of health conditions. You have a right to be a smoker. You don't have a right to smoke next to my desk, to blow smoke on people, on my children, to force me to live in a housing facility where I am subjected to more smoke. That is a line that we have in this country, which delineates what your individual rights are. I think we're looking at very much the same situation. OSHA, you're absolutely right, has always provided guidance and mandates about safety in a workplace. This is not a safe workplace if I'm working with a person that may make me and my family sick. That's not acceptable."

Aside from the knob-gobbling and semen-guzzling which I deleted in the interest of preserving your breakfast and sanity, which was shot to hell by the balance of that pull quote, the abject stupidity of using secondhand smoke as a metaphor for the unvaccinated is radiant. Secondhand smoke being just as dangerous if not more dangerous than the inhalant itself has more or less been debunked. I cannot remember where I saw it but I recall reading a very good essay (or maybe it was a George Carlin rant?) identifying the war on smokers as an opening salvo in the current drive of the war on liberty. First it was smoking sections, then you could only smoke at the bar, then only outdoors, then you had to be 50 feet away from the patio, and on and on and on until you could no longer even smoke in your own home.

But this horrendous hag's words are more than a mere warning of totalitarian overreach (which is sure to come). Her words can kill. And history has shown time and again that words indeed do kill. When you start labeling people as carriers of plague, disease and death and a threat to "the children," how long before some insane Karen (BIRM) pulls a James Hodgkinson on some unmasked passerby in the street?

Those are just two things that I did not want to get lost in the sauce with the hoopla over the apparent Hindenburg-ing of these multi-trillion dollar fiascos. But it is consuming a lot of real estate, whatever the kabuki/bukkake theatrics or the actual machiavellian maneuverings backstage so I suppose it is worth mentioning.

""At some point, all of us, regardless of party must ask the simple question -- how much is enough?" [WV Sen Joe] Manchin said. "What I have made clear to the President and Democratic leaders is that spending trillions more on new and expanded government programs, when we can't even pay for the essential social programs, like Social Security and Medicare, is the definition of fiscal insanity. . . "

"Overall, the amount we spend now must be balanced with what we need and can afford -- not designed to reengineer the social and economic fabric of this nation or vengefully tax for the sake of wishful spending," Manchin continued. "While I am hopeful that common ground can be found that would result in another historic investment in our nation, I cannot -- and will not -- support trillions in spending or an all or nothing approach that ignores the brutal fiscal reality our nation faces."

Manchin concluded, "If there is one final lesson that will continue to guide me in this difficult debate ahead, it is this: America is a great nation but great nations throughout history have been weakened by careless spending and bad policies. Now, more than ever, we must work together to avoid these fatal mistakes so that we may fulfill our greatest responsibility as elected leaders and pass on a better America to the next generation."

Wow. Our hero. Joe's Man-Chin I guess is not a glass jaw. As the great Milton Friedman PBUH once said,

"The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office."

I guess even Milton Friedman could not predict that it's politically and incredibly financially profitable for the wrong people to do the wrong thing AND keep getting re-elected for decades. While I was tempted to put in the Autistic Green Jesus "blah, blah, blah" but I think we all can infer it from the utter horse shit coming out of Manchin's mouth. That said, I guess he knows he'd be shit-canned in his next election for voting us over the cliff, but would he? West Virginians should've dumped his ass years ago but still for whatever reasons they persist.

Meh, I don't mean to dump all over him. And despite my thoughts above, that $3.5 trillion bill is chock full of crap that will be the final nail in the coffin of whatever vestige of our freedom is left. But for him to go on about "fiscal responsibility" is as insulting as Kathleen Supercilious. Joe Manchin as well as virtually every other REPUBLICAN senator and congressman has voted time and time again to raise the debt ceiling, borrow trillions, waste trillions and excoriate the citizenry for not "paying our fair share" (puke). Where was Manchin back then? Where were the Republicans? Yes, I guess it's all well and good that for whatever reasons he and McYertle are letting the Democrats form the circular firing squad and torpedo this madness.

But what happens in 2022 and 2024 if by some miracle Dao-Min Yen contracts dementia and we take over the shooting match again? Do you think the GOP will not only not borrow trillions on their own let alone propose bills that CUT spending, pay down the debt and abolish the bureaucracy?

So, okay, pass the popcorn, as Kyle Smith gloats. But it's a temporary reprieve either this time around or in the coming months and years. Unless things radically change. One way or another.
