The Morning Report - 12/23/21

Good morning, kids. Thursday and in the depths of all the insanity, a little bit of schadenfreude is good for the soul. Not one but two - count 'em two! - leftist fools got mugged by reality. Literally.

Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) was carjacked at gunpoint in Philadelphia and was left unharmed on Wednesday, her office said in a statement.

Philadelphia Police said the incident occurred at 2:45 P.M. EST on the 1900 block of Pattison Avenue in FDR Park following a tour which included fellow Congress members. . .

. . . Scanlon, represents Pennsylvania's 5th Congressional District, which includes a part of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney (D) said of the carjacking: "It's disheartening, and quite frankly infuriating, that criminals feel emboldened to commit such a reckless crime in the middle of the day in what should be a place of tranquility and peace-one of Philadelphia's beautiful parks. My thoughts are with her during what I'm sure is a traumatic time."

It is to laugh. Philadelphia and every other major Democrat-controlled metropolitan area have made it priority number one to abolish police forces and to decriminalize crime itself. And this bloated turd has the temerity to utter a statement like that? Yes, I'm sure his thoughts are with Scanlon but what about the citizens of Philly who have been shot, stabbed, raped looted and pillaged for the past two years? G-d help me for saying this, I have two very dear friends who live in Center City and, bless their hearts, liberal as the day is long, but I have very little sympathy for them since year after miserable year, they vote for schmucks like Jim Kenney, as well as Tom Wolf, Joey Softserve and all the rest, unfailingly, unflinchingly and uncritically.

Okay, I get it; you've been brainwashed into believing Democrat = good and Republican = evil. But for fuck's sake, can you pause just for one moment and turn off your reflexes and engage in critical thinking, employ logic and look at the actual policies that the people you vote for implement? I guess that's asking too much, all things considered. Ironically enough, and even more infuriating, the "marginalized communities" and "communities of color" that supposedly are oppressed and persecuted because of white supremacist policing and the criminal justice system wind up with the highest body counts and casualty rates as a result of embracing the BLM line to defund the police. I doubt very much that Jim Kenney's thoughts are with those folks during what has been a traumatic time. A time that has lasted since we "built back better" in 1965 with the Great Society/War on Poverty.

But wait! There's more!

Illinois Senate Majority Leader Kimberly Lightford (D) and her husband were victims of a carjacking Tuesday evening in suburban Broadview. Law enforcement said that the carjackers sped off the scene in Lightford's vehicle along with the Durango.

Lightford has yet to issue a statement on the matter.

You mean she didn't crib a page from the LoPecia Pressley playbook and blame "white supremacy" for being forced out of her car with a jammie shoved in her face? I have to say that my give-a-shit-ometer is not registering, but my funnybone status is at full tickle. Will Scanlon, Lightford, and every other fool who believes this racialist commie poison ever deprogram themselves long enough to put two and two together in a non-woke math way to arrive at four? Doubtful. For what they and their ilk have done to this nation and the constituents whose only value to them is when they are dead to be used to further sow discord and hatred, there isn't a trauma too severe to haunt their accursed and poisoned souls for all eternity.

And that brings up the point that CBD and I discussed in our latest CJN Speaks! podcast, our traditional, ingrained sympathy, respect and fealty to law enforcement and a criminal justice system that since the coming of Trump (and really many years before that) has been shown to not only be corrupt, but given today's political climate, will follow orders that put our inalienable rights in jeopardy. And that piggybacks with my editorial from yesterday wherein our military leadership is openly threatening a coup should the 2022 and 2024 elections not go the way they want them; that is, maintaining the actual coup that overthrew the 2020 election.

In a recent Washington Post op-ed, three retired generals, Paul Eaton, Antonio Taguba, and Steven Anderson warn of a supposedly impending coup should Donald Trump be elected in 2024.

The column seemed strangely timed to coincide with a storm of recent Democratic talking points that a reelected Trump, or even a Republican sweep of the 2022 midterms, would spell a virtual end of democracy. Ironies abound . . .

. . . The three retired generals say nothing about the Russia collusion hoax in which Obama Administration officials at the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the CIA helped to seed a fake dossier -- paid for by candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign. Ex-British intelligence operative Christopher Steele's made-up opposition research was designed first to derail Trump's campaign, then to disable his transition and finally sabotage his presidency. All that seems rather coup-like.

In truth, coups were regularly discussed during the last four years -- but only in the context of a by-any-means-necessary way of deposing Donald Trump extralegally before his term ran out . . .

. . . The officers published in the Washington Post are clueless as to why the military is now suffering its most dismal public approval ratings of the modern era -- with only 45 percent of the public registering trust and confidence in their armed forces.

The nation is clearly not blaming the courageous soldiers in the enlisted ranks. But it has had enough of the Pentagon's loud top brass who seem more interested in stirring up political divisions at home than adopting winning strategies in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, or deterring China and Russia.

The officer corps too often broadcasts its woke credentials, calibrated for career advancement. Top-ranking officers upon retirement too predictably head for corporate defense contractor boards and procurement lobbying firms.

To restore the military's reputation, officers should eschew politics to focus on restoring strategic deterrence and military readiness. They should keep clear of divisive domestic issues. They should stop virtue signaling to the media and influential members of Congress.

I truly admire Victor Davis Hanson but that last paragraph is really clueless. Barack Obama may be a jug-eared idiot who Rush Limbaugh of blessed memory rightly described as "the least qualified person in any room he enters," but his purging of the military of actual competent leadership who would obey their oaths to uphold the Constitution and replace them with true believers in Class A drag festooned with fruit salad was brilliant if not evil.

Every bastion of pro-Americanism in our society has been or is well on the way to being thoroughly corrupted. The last and most important one that could have possibly saved us from complete enslavement was the US military. We know where the flag officer corps stands. The question is, whither the rank and file servicemen? When the shit hits the fan - not if - will they too "just follow orders?"
