The Morning Report - 3/17/22

noflyzonegap.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and so the turducken of Haile Selassie stuffed inside Mahatma Ghandi and wrapped with Winston Churchill - President Volodymyr Zelensky - made his pitch to Congress via Zoom/Skype. Invoking everything from Pearl Harbor to 9/11, he begged and pleaded for America to basically start World War 3 to preserve his precious Democracy.

Kind of ironic that Zelensky's description of Putin's invasion of Ukraine sounds exactly like the Democrats description of what happened in that very building on January 6th, 2021. But no matter. There are far too many people in that desecrated edifice - desecrated by the presence and criminality of 99% of the politicians, not by buffalo headdress guy and certainly not Ashli Babbit or Roseanne Boyland - itching to send American troops into the Ukraine for the purposes of liberating a threatened people yearning for Jeffersonian democracy and saving their asses from the American people this November for destroying their heir lives and livelihoods. But mostly to save their asses from the American people this November for destroying their lives and livelihoods.

I've made the case as best as I can that despite Putin having no excuse for waging a bloody war of aggression/conquest, the fact that the Davos Global Reset Mafia are all in against him means something really stinks, since they are soulless fiends perhaps worse than Putin. But, you see, if I even dare to make this point, I'm a Russian stooge spreading disinformation and on the side of an evil Russian madman. Joey Soft-Serve himself called Putin a "war criminal." That after flip-flopping on that term like a tuna on the deck of a pitching trawler.

Well then, if Putin's a "war criminal," and anyone who gives him aid and comfort is the same, then what about this?

"Russia's top state-controlled energy company is set to cash in on a $10 billion contract to build out one of Iran's most contested nuclear sites as part of concessions granted in the soon-to-be-announced nuclear agreement that will guarantee sanctions on both countries are lifted . . .

. . . "We, of course, would not sanction Russian participation in nuclear projects that are part of resuming full implementation of the JCPOA," State Department spokesman Ned [Ryerson] Price confirmed on Tuesday, referring to the original 2015 nuclear accord. Russia's foreign ministry made a similar statement on Tuesday, saying that "additions were made to the text of the future agreement on JCPOA restoration to ensure that all the JCPOA-related projects, [especially] with Russian participation, as well as Bushehr [nuclear power plant], are protected from negative impact of anti-Russian restrictions" by the United States and European Union.

The removal of these sanctions will provide Moscow's Rosatom company with a critical source of revenue as American and European sanctions crush Russia's economy in response to its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. The concessions to Moscow have generated frustration on Capitol Hill, with top Republican leaders accusing the Biden [junta] of weakening penalties on Russia to secure an agreement with Iran. . .

. . . The official further confirmed that the United States will "not sanction Russian participation in nuclear projects that are part of resuming full implementation of the JCPOA," such as work on Iran's civilian nuclear program. "The United States will take actions as necessary to ensure that U.S. sanctions do not apply to the implementation of JCPOA nuclear-related projects and activities by non-U.S. individuals and entities," the official said.

R-U-F-K-M?! Joe Biden, via Ron Klain controlling the geriatric spasticated lips, calls Vladimir Putin a war criminal, flaming assholes on both sides of that fetid aisle are calling for Putin's scalp delivered on an MX warhead as they cry a river of glycerine tears because of some spiel from a guy as well as the nation he leads that together ain't exactly squeaky clean kosher. But then Needlenose Ned Ryerson Price informs us that we're letting the Russians broker a deal for us that gives them billions of dollars AND paves the way for Iran to get the bomb as well as billions more to fund "tourism in all its forms" as Yasser "that's my baby" Arafat once accidentally on purpose malaproped.

If I were Biden and everyone who did the Pelosi Seth Brundle Hand Jive while listening to Zelensky, I would not be using the term "war criminal" so freely. While a mushroom cloud may not appear over Kyev, this insanity means that the prospect of one appearing over Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Dubai or Riyadh is that much more real. And if none of that grabs you, inflated food and gas prices will be the least of your worries considering they might not be available at all.

For two years and continuing until today, there have been interruptions in commodities for sale. A number of factors contribute to this stuttering availability of commercial goods. Labor shortages in picking, packing, processing, and transportation led to gaps on some grocery shelves. Delayed imports of raw materials for canning, bottling, and bagging due to shutdowns in countries of origin will likely continue, especially now that China is locking down whole cities again.

Because of recent crop failures and lackluster harvests, many regional grocery warehouses, which usually have about 18 months' worth of packaged and frozen food in stock, are practically empty according to a friend whose family owns a large chain of stores. Low stocks of livestock feed and hay due to drought are reducing meat, poultry, milk, and egg production in some areas.

Monica Showalter's excellent article the other day—Biden is about to get caught flat-footed on another crisis: Ukraine war–generated global food shortages— examines the impact that Russia's war on Ukraine is having and is expected to have on global grain and fertilizer availability, as well as food production.

Besides the drought hitting the mid-plains and potentially causing the abandonment of this year's winter wheat (that's for flour) crop, the La Niña system is expected to bring above-average rains to the eastern and southeastern parts of the US, potentially delaying planting and harvest. If California continues to value a practically nonexistent smelt over its people, there will be little water for the Sacramento-area rice farmers. They've already pulled down avocado and almond orchards due to restricted water allocations elsewhere in the state. . .

. . . Already we are hearing about food rationing in various places in Europe. We've seen some of that during the worst of the pandemic shortages, but it's been managed by local vendors. It's likely to get much worse before it gets better.

Let's Go Brandon's expertise lies in making the worst possible decision given any type of choice and regardless of the number of options available...that much is painfully obvious. We can rest assured that, when the government wakes up to this problem, it will be too late.

The demands of equity will ensure that those at the head of the food and farm assistance lines are the ones with the most victimhood points. Even if the food we are used to is available, the cost will be close to prohibitive for those on a budget. Also, it's very likely nothing will have been done in the meantime to secure our food stocks from the depredations of the export market. It will be another case of the political class waiting until the last minute and then going overboard trying to react.

The author goes on to urge Americans everywhere to not only stock up on long-lasting packaged staples, but to start growing food crops at home. If only there were a way to drill for your own oil and refine it in your basement. Of course, Merrick Garland in a face colander and dominatrix gear will come after you.
