The Morning Report - 3/25/22

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and the struggle for freedom and liberation goes on. Yeah, Ukraine, whatever. But mostly I mean right here at home. The cancer that has been gnawing away at us since the end of the Second World War, if not as far back as Woodrow Wilson, has metastasized to such an extent that short of radical treatment- and I mean that metaphor in its fullest sense - will be required if we are to have a chance at survival, let alone recovery.

The latest symptom erupting on the diseased body politic is, of course, the Senate confirmation hearings for this Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. The fact that someone who putatively has sworn to uphold the Constitution while spending her career to this point wiping her ass with it is being considered to take a seat for life on the highest court in the land is certainly cause for alarm. Yet, what underscores my metaphor is the fact that this woman (you don't need to be Watson & Crick to confidently make that determination) was able to bamboozle her way into becoming a judge in the first place. That's not just a shot at her but at every fellow traveler along the way who fueled her rise and, worse, everyone along the way who recognized who and what she is and what she stood for and did nothing to keep her the hell away from the bench.

Well, here we are.

The existence of a speech by Biden's Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, praising Derrick Bell, the godfather of critical race theory, and citing his book, Faces At the Bottom of the Well, as an influence has been widely reported. Conservatives have covered Bell's racist views, his praise for Farrakhan, his antisemitism, and attacks on America. Much of this was already hashed out during the exposure of the relationship between Barack Obama and Derrick Bell.

. . . As others have pointed out, Faces At the Bottom of the Well was published when Jackson was in her early twenties during Bell’s tantrum against Harvard University. It’s unlikely that Biden’s Supreme Court nominee grew up with the hateful text, but it’s entirely plausible that she was influenced by the book which came out when she was at Harvard and then Harvard Law.

Since Bell began his racial strike against Harvard Law before she had completed her undergraduate degree, it’s unlikely that she had taken any of his classes, but the former member of the faculty was clearly an influence on her. Perhaps Jackson’s memory is faulty or she’s deliberately backdating the book’s influence to her childhood to make it seem more innocent. Surely no one could blame a ten year old for being attracted to a racialist text. . .

. . .Such racial conspiracy theories, ubiquitous in the work and thought of black nationalists and supremacists, who always begin and end with the premise of white evil, pervade Bell’s work. 

Faces At the Bottom of the Well was a way to popularize and communicate this central idea at a level that even a child or a not particularly bright Harvard student, already nursing resentments, would be able to understand by depicting scenarios in which the white society and white people would cheerfully revamp the Constitution to bring back black slavery. . .

. . . The Constitution, according to Bell, is merely the whim of a white agenda that serves its purposes. To the extent that the law has outlawed segregation and slavery, it did so only because it temporarily served white purposes and the moment that it would serve white purposes to enslave black people again, it would be done within the Constitution. That is the message of Faces At the Bottom of the Well: the book that influenced Jackson. . .

. . . Absorbing the paranoid racism of the godfather of critical race theory during her formative years at Harvard makes for a bad judge and a worse justice. Bell’s approach to the Constitution, like that of black nationalists, was that it was a trick to lure black people into lowering their guard. 

White people, he believed, could never be trusted and all that mattered was seizing power.

Any laws or documents made by white people would only serve them. Only black people could secure the rights of black people. Like the Nazis, the ultimate truths were race and power.

Everything else was a distraction.

If that is Ketanji Brown Jackson’s worldview, she cannot be expected to come out and say it. But the highest court in the land is the last place for racial paranoia and nationalism.

Absolutely 100% true, as Daniel Greenfield asserts, that "the highest court in the land is the last place for racial paranoia and nationalism." But, as I stated above, that statement applies to the nth degree for any court in the land. And yet, Jackson is viewed by her party and acolytes, and to the low information crowd, as the cream of the crop, the best and the brightest. And in the words of bald-headed stooge Brokeback Booker, choking back his glycerine tears, "a great American." Yeah, just like Father Coughlin, with a deep tan and lady parts.

The Supreme Court, whether we like it or not, has become the great oracle of Delphi insofar as being the final arbiter of what is and what is not Constitutional. As Mark Levin always said, and I paraphrase, each June we sit on tenterhooks waiting for nine very flawed human beings to decide how over 330 million of us will have to live our lives insofar as their decrees go about laws, and mostly bureaucratic regulations from unelected apparatchiks in the Deep State. That is completely antithetical to the way the framers of the Constitution envisioned, but it's too late to bitch about that one.

More to the point, let's say by some miracle this hideous racialist is rejected. There are a dozen more, dozens more with gossamer-thin Obama-like résumés inversely proportional to their overflowing hatred of the nation and society that allowed them to attain their level of achievement (affirmative action and Democrat Central Casting notwithstanding) waiting in the wings. And they'll all be some variant of black, female, lesbian and transexual so as to put the fear of Gaia into any Republican who dare oppose them, lest they be accused of you-know-what-"ism."

But, given the nature of the corruption of our society and government top to bottom and inside out, I ask yet again, what does it really matter at this point if this Jackson or some other Jackson takes that seat? We hashed this out on our award-winning™️ podcast,
wherein I declared how fed up I was with having to be satisfied with moral victories in the face of the overwhelming disaster we are dealing with in the wake of the 2020 stolen election, and everything that led up to it. Well, the fact is, the "I'm not a biologist" response to Marsha Blackburn, the Will "Lia" Thomas farce and the continued mass child abuse of our children at the hands of homosexual deviants, perverts and crackpots to make them lobotomized eunuchs in service to the furtherance of Marxism may very well be the tipping point at which a heretofore uncaring or ignorant majority wake up and smell the coffee, if not the "covfefe."

We can't throw our hands up. We can't crawl under the bed. We can't tuck ourselves into a ball and pray that they leave us alone. Everything we are experiencing right here and now shows us that the longer we stay down the harder they stomp on our heads.

We have to fight back because we are almost to the point where we have nothing left to lose. Screw the GOP. They're not going to help; in fact just the opposite as is evidenced by vermin like McConnell, Romney, Cheney and all the rest.

Breitbart, PBUH, said it best: "Fuck you. War." In any case, with Putin seemingly cornered and the idiots putting words and Maypo in Biden's maw, we might actually have nuclear war. So at least we have that to look forward to.

Have a good weekend.
