The Morning Report - 2/17/22

[I]f I were president-elect of the country, it's the last thing I would say. Even if I believed it, I doubt that I would put it this way. But I don't believe this anyway. Our darkest days are ahead of us? What a bleak way of looking at things. …We Americans have adapted to our problems. …Our freedom has allowed our adaptability. If disaster is coming our way, we don't just sit there and endure it. We come up with ways to avoid it, to beat it back, to overcome it, but we don't just sit there and accept it. And, as such, we don't just resign ourselves to the fact that they're living in the darkest days because we, at least to this point, still have the greatest degree of freedom of any people on earth. Now, it's under assault and under attack and we all know this. But I don't believe our darkest days are ahead of us. I never have. People have been asking, "You've always told us you'd tell us when it's time to panic. Is it time?" It's never time to panic, folks. It's never, ever gonna be time to give up on our country. It will never be time to give up on the United States. It will never be time to give up on yourself. Trust me."

There's been an ocean of ink and pixels spilled on the subject of leadership. While Rush lamented what he perceived to be [his] failure, nothing could have been further from the truth. He (and Donald Trump) effectively awakened millions of people to the rot, corruption and danger that for so long we were unaware of or, worse, refused to see. No one person, not even Rush Limbaugh can fight this fight alone, though that in no way takes away from his achievements which I believe in the fullness of time will be a key to changing the course of history for the better. 

Rush Limbaugh was the voice of freedom, the voice of America. I don't know where I would be today without him and for sure I don't know where I'll be tomorrow without him either.

Good morning, kids. Thursday and one year ago today the golden EIB microphone was silenced forever. I have to wonder that knowing his demise was imminent and having a front row seat as we all did to the coup de grace of the republic with the stolen 2020 election and the aftermath, did Rush Limbaugh, of blessed memory, really still believe it wasn't time to panic? Or was he merely trying to buck us up? I don't believe he was a bullshit artist. If he were, he'd never would have built and maintained an audience of tens of millions of people, and growing larger every year, for a third of a century.

We'll never really know, but that said, I think he knew what was just over the horizon and he did sound the closest thing to an alarm bell the very day this "two weeks to flatten the curve" lie was announced. Considering everything we've been through in just over a year, had Rush Limbaugh lived you can bet everything being hurled at Tucker Carlson and Joe Rogan would have been aimed at him. And when the FCC, the DoJ the J-6 Kangaroo Kommittee and the IRS put him in their crosshairs for "Mis- Dis- or Mal-information" (Jen Piss-Hockey's new moniker: Miss Dismal), you have to wonder what his first words might've been as the Pretenders' "My City Was Gone" faded out.

All things considered, I'll channel Maha-Rushie by saying maybe it's not time to panic, but maybe it's time to prepare.

Canada's Justice Minister, David Lametti, has told Trump supporters who donated to the "Freedom Convoy" to "be worried" about having their bank accounts frozen. . .

. . . "Well, I think if you are a member of a pro-Trump movement who's donating hundreds of thousands of dollars and millions of dollars to this kind of thing, they oughta be worried," responded Lametti.

Lametti also said that truckers could lose their trucking license if they participated in the protests or if their company permitted them to participate in the protest.

The justice minister's declaration comes after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau evoked emergency powers to quell the protests that have crippled the country in recent weeks in defiance of the government's vaccine mandates. Among the many measures that Trudeau's government would be taking, the prime minister's administration said that people who participate or donate to the protest could have their bank accounts frozen.

"This is about following the money. This is about stopping the financing of these illegal blockades," Trudeau's Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said at a press conference on Monday. "We are today serving notice if your truck is being used in these illegal blockades your corporate accounts will be frozen."

The cancerous anal wart that spouted that warning was none other than Canadian Reichsminister of Justice David Lametti. At least when Yasser Arafat addressed the UN in 1974, he had enough horse sense to carry an olive branch along with the .44 Webley. But this bald-headed, baldfaced thug did something far more stupid than merely issue a threat. By invoking the name of Donald Trump, I think he just tipped his mitt that Justin Castreau-cescu is colluding with Joey Softserve down here in the lower 48. And it's also a not so subtle warning that the next group of people to be targeted as "fomenting insurrection and funding terrorism" both here and abroad are the American people.

These mask mandates and vaccine mandates and all the garbage we have had to endure with them is bad enough. And yet most people still hunker down and try to go about their daily lives as best as they can because, unlike the professional leftist agitators who are trust-fund denizens of momma and poppa's basement, responsible American-Americans have better and more important things to do like earn a living and raise families.

Now, if a government is going to throw down a gauntlet by freezing bank accounts, seizing assets, throwing people in jail on trumped up charges (hint-hint) while ditching habeas corpus, and on and on, you are now throwing napalm on glowing embers. As Bob Dylan once intoned, "When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose." Whatever my innermost thoughts on what I think these tyrants who have all but destroyed our nation, society and future should suffer, the last thing I want to see is violence. But look at what has been unleashed on us on all fronts. Even with that, all we want to do is to be left alone. Yet, the Democrat Progressive Globalist Left - the tyrants - continue to beat on us until our morale improves. We will be made to care!

When criminals are let loose to terrorize the citizenry, when political assassination or attempted assassination is excused away by the propagandists in a way that blames rape victims for dressing too provocatively, and now when the guaranteed right to protest and even petition our elected officials for redress is viewed as insurrection and terrorism, that's bad enough.

Now, we have a government in Canada and one down here a red pubic hair's breadth away from preemptively criminalizing free speech by freezing our assets, and we have got ourselves a situation. Time to panic? No. Time to prepare? You bet your ass.
