The Morning Report - 3/10/22

Good morning, kids. Thursday and let me just say this right from the start. The death, maiming and suffering of Ukrainians as well as Russians is beyond tragic, mostly because it could have and should have been prevented were it not for the cluelessness and arrogance of Foggy Bottom, Democrats, the EU and NATO. That said, whatever Russia's legitimate territorial and security concerns are, and yes they do have them, waging aggressive warfare is inexcusable. Vladimir Putin for sure is a thug. He has engaged in political repression up to and including assassination of anyone who dares challenge his authority. Beyond the aforementioned legitimate claims over Ukraine, he never got over the dissolution of the old Soviet Union. Despite Clinton and Yeltsin yucking it up giving the illusion of some sort of new era of friendship, after nearly 80 years, Putin's Russia, along with Red China continue to be this nation's twin rivals and enemies on the geopolitical stage and their ultimate goal is our being neutralized if not completely subjugated.

Ironically, while everyone is dusting off Fallout Shelter signs and taking a second look at "duck and cover," the fear of an intentional nuke attack on US soil by these two players (an Islami-kaze attack with a dirty bomb or a suitcase nuke notwithstanding) is completely unwarranted. Take that video of Clinton and Yeltsin and substitute Putin and Xi because with Joey SoftServe and his puppet masters at the Klain Kalorama Komintern, we're committing national suicide all by ourselves.

The Biden [junta's] policy takes its cues not just from traditional sanctions, but from the virtue signaling of woke culture. The resulting collectivism makes America and Europe look like Russia without achieving anything more than the self-righteous solidarity of the smugly virtuous.

Russia, unlike that guy in the coffee shop, can't be canceled. And only an administration of idiot leftists would think that cultural bullying can somehow defeat military grade bullying. Tweets don't beat tanks and shooting is a lot more powerful than scolding. The pen may be mightier than the sword, but that came from an era when writers generally had something worth saying.

In a culture defined by culture wars, narrative looks like victory. But narratives rarely last more than a few years. We can see now that some of the most powerful cultural trends of the past few years, Black Lives Matter and [Chinese] COVID safetyism, lasted only a few years. Where in the past a successful cultural movement might have stuck around for a generation, it's now months.

When culture is worthless, nailing down real achievements means building things, earning money and winning wars. Culture and its narratives have ceased to be anything more than the momentary tactics and psychological spasms which leftist hegemony has reduced them to. . .

. . . Whatever we do, the war will play out with the inevitable logic of steel, oil, and firepower.

People will die, as they have before in Georgia and the Ukraine, and then there will be a new war on TV. Perhaps Xi will finally make his move to seize Taiwan, or maybe Iran will move to try and destroy Israel in time for Purim. Corporations will signal their virtue, city councils will pass resolutions, and Biden will stumble through another meaningless teleprompter speech.

It won't matter because we increasingly don't matter. Our enemies know it and so do our allies.

Beyond Daniel Greenfield's depressing observations in yet another excellent essay, the cultural rot is going hand in hand with the intentional dismantling of our economy. Dismantling really isn't the right word. It's the wanton demolition of our economy for the purposes of remaking society with a cadre of enlightened, superior minds running the show at the top and the rest of us filthy lumpenproles at the bottom. Of course, they have the best intentions and know what's best for us because they love humanity. The problem is they hate people.

The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, has temporarily severed Russian ties in the wake of Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

"We are not engaging with any sanctioned individual and have frozen all relations with Russian entities," WEF spokesperson Amanda Russo told Politico.

WEF also severed ties with a research center in Moscow and an advisory council headed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The organization added that it would still look to bridge ties between Russia and Ukraine. Per Politico:

The 800-pound gorilla of the elite global conference circuit has walked a tightrope for decades when it comes to Russia: basking in the Kremlin's attention while cringing over oligarch antics.

The Forum's founder, Klaus Schwab, prides himself on making his annual meeting in Davos open to all comers, including via a personal relationship with Putin dating back to the early 1990s.

Between 2007 and 2021, Putin and his predecessor, Dmitry Medvedev have addressed WEF five times, with Putin turning down an invitation to speak in January 2015 after the invasion of Crimea.

The isolation of Russia has been tightening since the country invaded Ukraine, from economic sanctions to corporations outright boycotting the country.

The World Economic Forum. Hmm, sounds familiar . . .

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is promoting a dystopian vision, and it is closer than you think.  By 2030, it says, "You will own nothing and you'll be happy."  Ownership and control will be vested in a handful of government leaders and a cabal of the wealthiest individuals in the world.  You will lose more than just your possessions.

Under the WEF's "Great Reset," individual freedom, personal responsibility, and opportunities for growth and self-fulfillment will be eroded away.  Democracy, the free market, and national sovereignty will be replaced by a new world order, stakeholder capitalism, and centralized control by some NGOs, globalist corporations, and the elite.  Klaus Schwab, the WEF's founder and executive chairman, gloated over the pandemic: to him, it was a "window of opportunity" for this reset.

Among the major components of the Great Reset, according to the WEF, are: a) working towards the creation of a stakeholder economy, as opposed to a shareholder economy; and b) leveraging investments to achieve social goals of equality and sustainability.  Translated into policy and action, the Great Reset is being ushered in directly through global public-private partnerships (GPPP) and environment, social justice, and good governance (ESG) investing.  Indirectly, modern monetary theory (MMT) is contributing to its ultimate goal of bringing about the economic ruin and chaos necessary for the advent of the New World Order.

I had this link yesterday but it is worthy of bookmarking because the WEF is the real enemy. Between the Chinese COVID lockdowns, mask and vaccine mandates and the pretext to destroy already anemic election integrity laws that allowed for the theft of the 2020 election, and now the insane yet intentional dismantling of our petrochemical and fossil fuel industries, America right now, as weak and prostrate as it has ever been, is in the crosshairs of people who have been plotting its destruction since the end of World War Two, if not before. Our superpower status as well as our culture, such as it was, which elevated the individual over the state and the Almighty over everything, was the only thing that stood in their way of absolute power.

Well, as it seems, us and Vladimir Putin and quite possibly Xi Jinping. Again, let me reiterate my disgust and revulsion of Putin for what he's doing. But that said, the WEF are just as evil and just as malevolent a force as Putin or Xi. If Klaus Schwab, Nazi collaborator George Soros, Hans-Georg Wyss et al are now going against Putin, you can bet your bottom dollar - which is now worth 60% less than it was before they tied a Great Seal bib around Biden's neck before installing him in the Oval Office high chair - then they must see him as some sort of obstacle to their plan for global dominance. It also raises the intriguing question of whether Xi is the power behind the WEF or perhaps another rival for absolute power.

In any case, with this bunch taking sides against Putin, and given what we know their aims are, history is sort of repeating in that this is an Operation Barbarossa moment. Stalin was an absolutely horrendous tyrant, but for a time he alone prevented Hitler from capturing Europe and perhaps winning the European war and then the Second World War once America was drawn in.

As the saying goes, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." In this case, for the time being. All of this, plus the constant and growing ever more nauseating pro Ukraine and Zelensky agitprop by enemies on the Left and the right has now led me to declare:

I'm Rootin' for Putin

If him winning some sort of victory, be it a TKO or a decision, prevents even for a single day the plans of the WEF to help the Deep State over here enslave us forever, then I can accept the consequences. Your mileage may vary. Until gas becomes $50 a gallon. Any day now. . .

  • Daniel Greenfield: "Tweets don't beat tanks. . . Putin might threaten to go nuclear, but the Lego company already pushed the red button by halting shipments of bricks to Russia. If that doesn't stop Putin, I don't know what will."
