The Morning Report - 3/28/22

Good morning, kids. The start of a new week, and Saturday night at the chez is steak and a movie night, usually featuring some form of escapist fare like a classic comedy or musical. In this case, the classy, elegant and legitimately funny Cary Grant, Myrna Loy and Melvyn Douglas in Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. But as if to slap me upside the head (yes, an ironic metaphor) this morning, barely 75 years, yet a nightmarish mirror universe later, I wake up to vermin like Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Will Smith debasing themselves on national television. The former two vomiting up inanities about perhaps the last refuge of sanity in a disintegrating nation, Florida, and the latter near the end of the interminable night charging the stage and slapping another overpaid, barely literate degenerate because he made a crack about his wife.

Like virtually every other cultural/entertainment enterprise that devolved into house organs of socialist totalitarianism, the Oscars have lost about 90% of its viewing audience in the past 15 or so years so few, except the sub-literate and masochistic were watching. I mean, who wants to willingly sit through three hours of having the moral equivalent of Slumdog Cerberus Tomas Torquemada berating you about being racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic and stupid, just to be rewarded by watching Will Smith smacking Chris Rock? Bad enough if it was spontaneous; worse would be if it was staged. How low we have sunk.

Meanwhile, in another part of the forest, the Delaware Demento installed into the Oval Office via a stolen election went off script and/or off his meds and in essence all but declared war on Russia. Vladimir Putin controlled - and nuclear-armed - Russia. And that sent his handlers into a full-on panic.

“For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Biden said at the conclusion of his speech, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Biden’s quip prompted [junta] officials to scramble and walk back his comment in an effort to reassure the world that the United States was not calling for regime change in Russia.

Axios cites “a top official” who confirmed the line was not on Biden’s prepared text or on his teleprompter. The Washington Post cited “a person familiar with the speech” who also said Biden’s line was not planned. . .

. . . On Friday, Biden suggested American troops were on their way to Ukraine before the White House clarified his remarks. On Thursday, Biden vowed to respond “in-kind” if Putin decided to use chemical weapons, prompting the White House to explain the United States would not use chemical weapons. . .

, , , “We do not have a strategy of regime change in Russia or anywhere else, for that matter. In this case, as in any case, it’s up to the people of the country in question. It’s up to the Russian people,” Secretary of State Tony Blinken said at a news conference in Jerusalem.

I guess Blinken was channeling Whoopi the Fat Albert Speer. "It wasn't 'cannot remain in power-power!"

Of course, the press is happy to play mop-up. Some were calling this Biden’s “tear down this wall” moment before the White House’s embarrassing walk-back. The Washington Post writeup gently, and comically, referred to Biden’s “sometimes inarticulate rhetoric.” Sometimes??

Yet the problem here isn’t his confusion, but his fundamental insincerity.

As a senator and vice president, Joe Biden got away with saying whatever felt effective in the moment, whether it was promising orderly Supreme Court confirmation hearings, vowing to pass a given bill or committing to not letting his family merchandize his role as veep.

But he was time and again just telling his audience what he thought it wanted to hear, so he could move on to his next round of pitching bull. Because senators and veeps don’t actually have much individual power, he got away with it.

The president of the United States, however, is the most powerful guy on the planet; his words matter. The job’s a terrible fit for a career con man.

Since the end of World War Two, with the exception of Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter (and you could arguably throw in JFK during the Cuban Missile crisis) the United States was never in a position that it was not steering events in the wake of an international crisis, or at least had some modicum of control so as to contain it. With Biden, the lights are on and nobody's home. Whoever is pulling this decrepit, decaying criminal's strings - Klain, Jarrett, Obama, whoever, or some combination - the longer they keep him in the role of figurehead, the more his mind and body disintegrates. Whatever chemical cocktail of Risperidone and Mementine washed down with two scoops of pralines 'n Lomotil ain't cutting it, folks.

He's out of control and the only thing preventing absolute disaster is that Putin understands that Biden is a liar and a crook, only interested in his own accrual of personal power and monetary gain. The problem is, what was expected to be a 48-hour anschluss of Ukraine has turned into a nearly month-long bloody battle that has severely mauled the Russian armed forces (yes, the suffering of innocent Ukrainians is duly noted) and left Putin with Fabergé egg on his face. Hopefully, Putin reads Biden correctly but even he has to wonder whether or not it was the dementia talking smack or Biden tipping his hand. Can the Klain Kalorama Komintern be that stupid as to let Biden in on what they really intend to do seeing how he shoots his mouth off wherever he goes?

The good news seems to be that Zelensky is open to surrendering the Donbas to Russia as a means to stop the fighting. Will Putin accept it, declare victory and lick his wounds? Let's hope so. I don't know that Putin would use nukes; that is I hope he doesn't. But given if things do get out of hand, Russia certainly has the means to launch a massive cyberattack on us if he really feels backed into a corner. But given the fact that China's economy is inextricably linked to our own, one wonders whether they would allow Putin to do that, assuming they have sway over him. Then again, the dollar is about to be supplanted by the yuan as the world's reserver currency, along with petrodollars being replaced by petro-yuan.

Friend and friend of the blog Michael Walsh is sounding the alarm bell.

The [so-called quote-unquote "president"] of the United States, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., who is 79 years old and suffering from senile dementia at the end of a long life of bullying, lying, boasting, conniving, grifting, grafting, and living off the public tit to an extent indecent even by Washington standards, declared war on Russia on Friday. In the course of a typically blustering, hectoring speech, the senescent Biden went off script and interpolated the following peroration: "My God, this man cannot remain in power."

To which the only proper response is: "My God, this man cannot remain in the Oval Office." Joe Biden needs to be removed from the White House as soon as possible, before his failing mind, his erratic behavior, and his proven lack of character get us all killed. The question is, is there enough political will in the capital to do what needs to be done? . . .

. . . During his long occupation of a Senate seat, Biden served for many years on the foreign-relations committee, and learned all the wrong lessons without acquiring an ounce of real-world savvy. . .

. . . For 50 years this creepy blowhard has been dining out off his dead wife and daughter, and more recently, a dead son, parlaying sympathy votes into a lifetime sinecure. Now, by accident/design/hook/crook he's Potus. And God help us, by calling for regime change in Moscow, he's just given the Russians a causus belli, should they choose to accept it. They would be perfectly within their rights to do so under the laws of war.

Walsh is of course correct in that Biden has got to go. But, that of course raises perhaps more problems than it solves.

The stumbling block, of course, is what would come after him should he be removed via the 25th amendment or suffer an unfortunate act of God or simply reach the end of his rapidly diminishing physical and mental capacity: President Kamala Harris. A vapid affirmative-action female-type person  without the slightest aptitude for any job she's so far been handed by the Democratic establishments in California and D.C., she very likely would be even worse than her current boss, at least for the short time she, too, would hold office.

The problem, though isn't just Kamala or, Lord forbid, Pelosi. The problem is aside from one or two people who are reasonably sane in the Democrat Party, they are on the outs. In any case our entire government is completely out of order and on a mission to subjugate the American citizenry or destroy them in the process.

Agreed that Biden has got to go. But the ideologues that used him as their stooge/puppet are just as dangerous insofar as their ideology is as toxic as a "president" with dementia. He may not know what he's saying but they sure as hell do.

And you can't 25th Amendment all of DC, including the Pentagon and DOJ.
