The Morning Report - 10/14/21

curtisckimchgn.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and with the economy heading south, ironically as hordes of illiterate peasants head north, Emperor Backtalk, the Kalorama meat-puppet, fled from reporters so as to avoid questions about the near collapse of our supply chain that is set to make American stores resemble those of the non-Potemkin village Soviet Union. Not that he would have anything to fear from a reporter pool that is essentially on par with that of Soviet era Pravda and Izvestya.

Whatever damage the self-inflicted wounds of the forced lockdowns caused, they're nothing compared to the wrecking ball we have been pounded with since noon last January 20th. Massive borrowing, the incentivization of indolence by paying people to stay home, the dismantling of our fossil fuel industry, and the threat of internal exile for those who refuse the jab are key components in all of this misery. And, yes baby, the Misery Index is back along with stagflation. Psaki-psircling back to this supply chain madness, even with the constraints put on the economy by the Chinese COVID stupidity, how could that have possibly thrown a monkey wrench into the works? Well, it really didn't. But the hand of whack-o environmentalists (BIRM) aided and abetted by greasy, brilliantine tyrant Gavin Newsom have their hoof prints all over this.

According to the Washington Post, the port crisis is also causing rail yards to back up and logjams for truckers. California passed AB 5, which eliminated owner-operators. Another law put restrictions on the age of trucks that could legally operate in the state. These restrictions further impede getting products out of the ports and in and out of the rail yards. Florida doesn't have any of these restrictive rules.

The Florida Ports Council's response shames the one from the federal government. For example, Representative Michelle Steel (R-CA) introduced legislation to ban ships from idling or anchoring within 24 nautical miles of the Southern California coast for the next 180 days. Steel's Stopping Hazardous Incidents in the Pacific Act of 2021 (SHIP Act) is based on speculation that an anchor or chain from a ship off the coast may have caused a pipeline spill in the area. Florida, meanwhile, is offering the cargo ships a place to go.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is at the helm of the crisis for the Biden administration. The former small-town mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has no evident experience handling a supply chain crisis that spans the globe. He got the job because he dropped out of the primary, endorsed President Biden, and likes trains a lot. . .

. . . Miami, Florida, has opened its arms to tech companies fleeing California. Residents of the Golden State flocked to Florida in 2020 in numbers not seen previously. Maybe cargo ships will be next. Governor Ron DeSantis made some real infrastructure investments to upgrade Florida's ports. Let's see if they pay off and save Christmas for everyone.

The thrust of the article is how Florida, yet again, under the leadership of Ron DeSantis, is willing and eager to ride to the rescue and show the Left how things get done. That is, using common sense and letting business and people do their thing with minimal interference from the government. But no. We can't do that because Gaia, white supremacy and capitalism. The ridiculous SHIP act from Michelle Steel underscores the motivating force that I had noted a few days ago. Fear and the drive for absolute safety. So, because of an oil spill caused by an errant anchor, an already moribund economy has to be My Pillowed indefinitely.

Look, I'm not a fan of oil spills, but remember how the Left shrieked in 2010 about the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe? As bad as it was, only a few months passed before all the oil had essentially dissipated and was gone, much to the chagrin of the propagandists who went down there to follow up and found that the Gulf, that is the Earth, had healed itself. Rush Limbaugh, PBUH, was all over this for months and yet again he was right. However many thousands or even tens of thousands of gallons might have leaked into the water, it was all figuratively and quite literally by comparison to the size and volume of the Gulf, a drop in the ocean. What most people don't realize is that oil is constantly leaking up from beneath the seabed in the same or even greater volume than the instantaneous spillage of Deepwater, or even the earlier Exxon Valdez, but it is eventually absorbed and dissipated.

I don't mean to go off on a tangent but commerce, a free market, individual choice and indeed our entire way of life have been predicated on being able to choose for ourselves the who, what, where, how and why we want to live as individuals based on our own understanding of what is best for ourselves. Of course, being respectful of others as laid out by both custom, morals, ethics and a just and stable law. Considering who and what is now in control of our government and our society, I'm sure you can spot the problem. Fauci himself, echoed by Arnold Schvartzeschvartze, said it out loud: "Screw your freedom!" That of course was in reference to wearing the worse than useless face diapers. But it applies to everything. Every aspect of our lives is to be controlled because we are too stupid to make decisions for ourselves. Naturally, an enlightened elite will make the choices for us, with the reward of never having to be beholden to the constraints they put on the rest of us.

But at least we can be reassured that the GOP has our back. Mostly with a knife in it.

Republicans in Congress plan to improve their messaging on climate change, conservation and the environment in an effort to win the support of Americans who deem the issue important.

"If we sit on the sidelines and are not willing to talk about it because we don't like the green New Deal, we won't be successful," Utah Rep. John Curtis told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview. "We've got to get Republican members of Congress comfortable talking about it, educated in the real facts and in the real science."

In July, Curtis founded the House Conservative Climate Caucus, a first-of-its-kind caucus that has more than 70 GOP members. Chief among the groups' core beliefs is that the climate is changing and humans have contributed to it through decades of global industrialization.

But the caucus' members have proposed free market, "America first" solutions to climate change in sharp contrast to Democrats' big spending ideas. The Green New Deal, which progressives in Congress unveiled in 2019, is composed of various proposals to help the U.S. achieve net-zero emissions in the near term, which could cost Americans as much as $65,300 per household.

Note to Utah Rep. John Curtis: The climate of the earth has been changing for 4.5 billion years. The effect of man's activities on the climate has been ZERO. (NB I said "climate" and not "environment"). The idea that you are going to propose "free market solutions" to the goal of turning America into a planned Soviet economy on the premise of one of the greatest lies in history is just beyond rage-inducing. The stupidity of thinking that the GOP is going to attract Leftists by offering slightly less than America's head on a platter is idiotic. We're already white supremacist bigots who stole the land from the Indians and then raped it with our oil wells, SUVs and private homes. I.E. we're evil and need to be eradicated. And you think you're going to win them over?! Shut your whore-mouth, sit the hell down and get the fuck out of the way.

Amazing. Complete schmucks like John Curtis are eagerly grabbing their ankles for people who, when they're not decapitating them in the womb, are force-feeding our children puberty blockers and Communist propaganda 9-3 in the schools of mis-er-ee. And when parents who actually give a shit about what's going on are stomped on by the police at school board meetings, assholes like John Curtis look the other way.

The callousness is what is so hard to stomach from the progressive elites of Loudon County, Virginia, the wealthy dormitory community of Washington, DC.

They laughed and cheered when plumber Scott Smith was crash-tackled by police and humiliated at a school board meeting on June 22 as he tried to raise the plight of his 15-year-old daughter who he says was raped and sodomized in the school bathroom by a boy in a skirt. No one expressed any concern for his daughter.

There was no compassion, either, from superintendent Scott Ziegler, who claimed bafflingly at the meeting that there had been no assault in a school restroom anywhere in Loudon County and airily dismissed parents' concerns about the risks of transgender bathrooms. Then he gave a little woke homily to show those powerless parents in the room who really was in charge.

"Time Magazine in 2016 called that a red herring . . . we've heard it several times tonight from our public speakers but the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist," he said.

Tell that to the Smith family.

The rainbow activist who allegedly threatened Smith's livelihood at that meeting told him point blank his daughter's rape three weeks earlier did not happen, as if she would know.

He raised his voice and called her a "bitch."

For that mild response to her provocation he was arrested. The video of his humiliation, his T-shirt ripped, his belly exposed, his pants pulled down, went viral globally.

No one cared about his shattered family.

The Soros-funded left-wing prosecutor, Buta Biberaj, reportedly a de-carceration, proponent tried to get Smith jailed for his disruptive behavior . . .

. . . Caught amid this Kafkaesque nightmare was a father trying to protect his daughter. Too bad. He's an inconvenient reproach to the perverted equity agenda, so he must be crushed like a bug.

Where the fuck is John Curtis when this is going on? Where the fuck is the GOP? Yeah, I know they're worse than useless but where are the few like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Marsha Blackburn or Louie Gohmert over in the House? And where is Donald Trump?

Yes, Joe Biden is a freaking disaster. But this is going on in the name of, at the behest of, and because of Joe Biden being installed in the White House after a rigged election overthrew the damned country. I think it's at least as serious an issue, if not more so than even Afghanistan and the economy. And still, we get calls to vote harder, or for Constitutional Conventions or today's tone-deaf pundit (who I really like) Ted Malloch calling for all sorts of actions to kneecap the Deep State. Well, considering the Deep State is at the controls, in Soviet America, Deep State kneecap you, Ted.

Finally, I'm heading out of town, so this will be the final Morning Report for the week. I'll be back a week from tomorrow, so see you then.

  • "What made the left obnoxious, for Marx, was its faith in the notion that ideas and subjective beliefs and moral abstractions, rather than material economic realities, move history. The middle-class leftists of the 19th century, for example, put a lot of hope in reforming the manners and mores of working people, instead of seeking to address material inequalities between classes. In doing so, they merely preserved the existing order. Sound familiar?"
