The Morning Report - 12/17/21

nypdnazicheese.jpg

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and once again, we have a Venn diagram where the Peking Pox non-pandemic, crime, and authoritarian oppression intersect at a point that is America in late 2021. The "crux of the biscuit" as it were, is the mechanism by which our tormenters will "gently nudge" us to their way of thinking -- or beat us bloody until we cry Uncle. Joe Biden or Joe Stalin; either way since you get that one you're bound to get that other one.

Hungarian-born philanthropist Soros and his Open Society group of non-profits have mainly doled out cash to political action campaigns controlled by attorney and criminal justice reform activist Whitney Tymas, 60. She is the treasurer of the Justice and Safety PAC as well as 20 other similarly named groups at both the state and federal levels, according to public filings.

The goal of the myriad PACs is focused on electing progressives to end tough policing and mass incarceration, according to Tymas. "If we are to reach a place of true progress, it will take the sustained efforts of local elected prosecutors across the country to rectify and reimagine their role in the criminal legal system -- not just as gatekeepers, but as active catalysts for change," wrote Tymas in an opinion article last year.

Her efforts coupled with Soros' largesse have played an outsize role in some of the most controversial district attorney campaigns in the US, including Chesa Boudin in San Francisco, George Gascon in Los Angeles as well as Larry Krasner in Philadelphia and Kim Foxx in Chicago, among others. Soros also donated $1 million to Alvin Bragg's successful DA campaign in Manhattan, funneling the cash through the Color of Change non-profit, according to public filings.

"George Soros has quietly orchestrated the dark money political equivalent of 'shock and awe,' on local attorney races through the country, shattering records, flipping races and essentially making a mockery of our entire campaign finance system," said Tom Anderson, director of the Government Integrity Project at the National Legal and Policy Center in Virginia. (Calls to Soros' camp went unreturned on Thursday.) . . .

. . . "I don't think we've ever seen anything like this where federal election level money and resources are brought to bear and coordinated to effectively flip local level races where campaign finance restrictions make it almost impossible to counter," said Anderson, adding that conservative opponents are hamstrung by local campaign finance laws that Soros doesn't have to abide by because he is using independent expenditures and not directly coordinating with the campaigns.

Critics say the policies of Soros-funded DAs, which have included abolishing bail and, in the case of Chicago, placing hundreds of violent criminals on electronic tracking systems, have led to a spike in crime throughout the country. According to the FBI's annual Uniform Crime Report released in September, the country saw a 30 percent increase in homicides in 2020 -- the largest single-year spike since they began recording crime statistics 60 years ago. The report also saw a 24 percent decrease in arrests across the country.

Let's cut to the chase right here; the reasons behind so-called "criminal justice reform" insofar as the American criminal justice system is allegedly intentionally rigged to incarcerate blacks and only blacks is complete and utter horse-shit. It goes hand in hand with the same cancerous lie that America itself is an illegitimate nation built and sustained on white supremacy. I can spend months on these topics alone but for now let's leave it as it is as the excuse the left has used to gin up division and strife for political gain since at least the early 1960s. Look what the hell is going on in every blue hell-hole around the country. Most recently, the mass terror attack at the Waukesha Christmas Parade that killed or maimed dozens. Aside from right here, where else in the house organs of Leftism also known as the media are you going to still see any reference to this attack?

What is going on now is an orchestrated effort to demolish one of the key underpinnings of society: law and order and the right of ordinary citizens to feel safe in their homes and communities. Combine that with the concerted effort to destroy our economy and the ensuing anarchy, chaos and mayhem create the perfect conditions for those pulling the strings behind the scenes (and really right in front of our eyes) to rescue us from this "crisis" - one that they will not let go to waste since it gives them the opportunity to "build back better." Nudge-nudge-wink-wink.

No, this crime wave is no accident nor the unintended consequences of the misplaced ideals of mere liberals. It is the intended result of truly sick, twisted, power-mad leftists who seek to build paradise on earth on the corpses of millions of us.

The issue though is law enforcement itself. That is where the rubber meets the road, so to speak, of getting an unwilling populace to comply. This is where the other fraud, the phony non-pandemic pandemic, comes into play. People tend to be much more compliant and cooperative when they think that a plague is upon them; they look to so-called medical authorities for instruction and guidance. After all, this isn't politics, it's our health. And they're doctors, so we can trust them implicitly (sarc), but I digress. The fist in the glove is of course law enforcement.

A group of unvaxxed protesters dared to try to order a meal at an Applebee's in the New York City borough of Queens on Wednesday. Thanks to Comrade de Blasio and Kommissar Hochul, you'll need to bend the knee and raise your sleeve if you want to snag an order of riblets.

FYI, despite what commies like MSNBC's Joy Reid would have you believe, these anti-vax mandate peeps aren't all white people in MAGA hats.

Did you hear the black woman yell that she was fired for not getting vaxxed and now can't eat? De Blasio did that!

One video shows an Applebee's employee refusing to give a glass of water to a child. . .

. . . The New York Police Department (NYPD) showed up in force to whisk the recalcitrant diners into the Paddy multi-national wagon.

What else do cops in New York have to work on today? Well, maybe. . .

-- chase the guys who tried to kill one of their own early on Thursday
-- find the home invaders who just killed a Staten Island dad
-- look for the "man" who attacked a Thai model on a subway platform on Wednesday
-- find the ambergris who attacked a delivery driver in broad daylight
-- go after the two guys who attacked a man with a brick earlier this month
-- get the gang of kids who attacked a 67-year-old man with a hammer
-- sniff out the thug who pushed a straphanger (that's NYC speak for subway rider) and fractured the victim's spine

In case de Blasio hasn't heard, his policies, as well as those of former Governor Cuomo, have left NYC in the gutter. Crime is exploding. New Yorkers, mostly black New Yorkers, are being killed in record numbers. De Blasio doesn't care; it's those rascally anti-vaxxers who need to go to jail.

Mercifully, DeBolshevik is gone when the ball drops on New Year's eve. But what of Eric Adams? Also, you still have a city council that is every bit as Maoist as the lanky hunk of Commie piss that has left my beloved hometown in ruins and now is all set to make the rubble bounce by, get this, banning natural gas in all new construction. And don't forget that the new governor is essentially Angel of Death Cuomo without the pierced nipples and she's a red-nether hair's breadth away from reimposing lockdowns and My Pillowing New York for good.

The battle cry of the armed militant wing of the Democrat Party, BLM/Antifa is "ACAB," meaning "All Cops Are Bastards." I don't know about all, but certainly far too many for my comfort these days. Yeah, I get it. It's a tough job and you're a target not only of thugs and goons high on crack and Critical Race Jive Kampf but of a governmental bureaucracy that protects the criminals and has no qualms about firing you for stepping out of line. But what of character, morality and decency? When the mostly peaceful rioting of 2020 wreaked havoc all over town, they held you back and did nothing as hate shakes, excrement in Glad bags and Molotov cocktails were hurled at you. For that, you did nothing except perhaps turning your back on DeBolshevik at a public appearance. How brave.

Jobs in law enforcement are fundamentally different than other jobs. That difference is the oath that all law enforcement officers swear. The FBI oath states:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me G-d.

All federal, state, and local law enforcement officials swear something similar.

Certainly, following lawful orders is important, but notice that there is nothing mentioned about obedience to leadership. That's because following orders is between the officers and their leaders. Upholding their oath is between them and us, the American people. We expect them to make judgements about right and wrong, and the oath is their assurance that they will do so conscientiously.

All law enforcement officers, including FBI agents, who are "just following orders" are missing the point of their oath. They may be bound by agency rules to follow orders, but they are bound by sacred honor to remain faithful to the American people.

There's a reason why people in law enforcement are required to place their honor on the line for the citizens they serve. No other occupation is allowed to detain, sometimes with restraints, another person solely based on their word that it's justified. A cop can pull over a car, administer a sobriety test, handcuff the driver, and arrest him if he's found to be impaired. No citizen who has not sworn the oath can do such a thing.

We grant the police the awesome powers of the state. In exchange, they promise to not abuse those powers. They promise to serve the public, as prescribed in the Constitution. That promise takes precedence over orders. So long as their leadership directs their activities consistent with the Constitution, there's no problem. But when leadership directs them to do something counter to the Constitution -- like ordering them to violate someone's civil liberties -- such orders are unlawful. An officer's oath, whether he be a police officer or an FBI agent, is a promise to assess the constitutionality of all orders before blindly obeying them.

And yet we've seen widespread infractions of that promise across the range of law enforcement. Churchgoers have been cited or even arrested for failing to comply with closure orders.Worship is a basic human right guaranteed by the 1st Amendment. There is no pandemic exception in the Constitution. Federal and local officials have no authority to order such closures. Orders for police to enforce the closures were unlawful. Yet, far too many cops simply followed their orders. . .

. . . Compliance with an officer's oath can involve personal risk. To refuse an order from one's superior carries the risk of seriously damaging -- or even ending -- an officer's career. But the thing is, they've already promised us that they would make that sacrifice on our behalf. That's the deal they strike with the public to be in law enforcement.

If their oath no longer binds them, how does that change our relationship with law enforcement? If their sworn word no longer means what it says, how can we believe them the next time they swear to tell the "truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth" in court? When an officer assures us that they made an arrest for sound reasons, are they standing for justice, or using their authority for personal or political gain? If their oath is meaningless, they become no more credible than the person they've placed under arrest.

Far too many law-enforcement officers, FBI agents included, have demonstrated that they are no longer agents of the Constitution. At best, they're just employees doing as told. Their oath has become an irrelevant formality. Given that, why should we continue to vest them with the authority of the state?

The problem is that we no longer vest them with anything. We are a citizenry that is being ruled against its will by an illegal junta that stole an election and overthrow the nation. It took us a bit over a hundred years to get to this point but here we are. And given the fact that DC police in the form of Michael Byrd for one murdered an unarmed Ashli Babbit, beat to death an unarmed Roseanne Boyland, and their superiors in the DOJ continue to imprison scores of innocent Americans for the crime of protesting the theft of said election and overthrow of their country, how are we ever supposed to trust the police to preserve, protect and defend anything more than their jobs and pensions? Ditto a now almost completely subsumed judiciary all the way up to and including the Supreme Court?

Much of this shit can end today if the police, en masse, refused to "follow orders." And that should apply everywhere, and not just law enforcement. What happened in that Queens Cheesecake Factory does not fill me with strength and confidence. There has to be a Claudette Colvin among the men and women in blue and in the armed forces who will refuse to cooperate. We've had one or two. But it's an act of futility unless it inspires everyone else to really "serve and protect."

Have a good weekend.
