The Morning Report - 4/21/22


Good morning, kids. Thursday and the subject of the theft of the 2020 election and subsequent overthrow of the US government, both in my column yesterday as well as Ace's post as it applied to the sandbag interview of Trump by Pierced Organ (aka Piers Morgan) engendered some lively discussion among the commenters, to say the least. Before delving yet again into that subject especially as it relates to a speculative re-re-election campaign of Trump, there seems to be a new twist to his supposed storming off of the set in a huff.

On Wednesday afternoon, British media personality Piers Morgan posted a video clip from an interview that is set to air with former President Donald Trump next week that is generating controversy over whether it was deceptively edited. The clip appears to show Trump storming out of the interview, while subsequent reporting suggests that is not what happened.

“Turn the camera off,” Trump says at the end of the video clip that Morgan posted to his Twitter account. “Very dishonest.”

NBC News reported that audio provided to the network by Trump’s team appears to tell a different story about what happened.

“The two men laughed and thanked each other, the recording shows,” NBC News reported. “There are no signs of Trump’s storming off set.”

If the play-by-play of what happened is important to you, then by all means you can click on the links and have at it. FYI, this new Piers Morgan show is being produced on an outlet called TalkTV which is a wholly owned entity of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation. I'm shocked. Meh, is Donald Trump getting sandbagged by the media any more newsworthy or surprising than the discovery that water is wet?

Yet the question remains, should the theft of the 2020 election be a campaign issue, let alone the central issue, of Donald Trump or any potential candidate? I suppose it depends on what your definition of the word "be" be. The magnitude of the crime cannot be allowed to be swept under the rug and forgotten as if nothing happened. On the other hand, the fact that the media is not only the mouthpiece for the perpetrators of the crime but accessories before and after the fact, given its role as an active participant in the previous attempt to sabotage the 2016 elections, means that any attempt to even broach the subject will be effectively painted as sour grapes. Worse, it in theory distracts from the abject destruction that has been wrought on us in just 14 months.

I suppose I have to admit that I'm guilty of not realizing that a very large segment of the population, if not the majority, has the attention span of a flea. Worse, believing that others see things as I see them. It's a sad state of affairs to come to the realization that that just isn't the case. And yet, I just can't let go of it. Maybe there is some sort of a happy medium wherein the suffering that is driving droves of heretofore core Democrat constituents away from them (if not toward the GOP) can be directly tied to the events of November 2020? Or is it just better to shut up, point to the John Wayne Gacy card-carrying NEA member dressed as the Tooth Fairy instructing your children in the glories of glory holes and let the Democrats get wiped out.

And yet, and yet. I don't have a Wayback Machine and even if I did, I don't have the ability to change history. But, it raises the question, had Trump been reelected would any of this pre-apocalyptic nightmare have happened in the first place? Or, would 2024 and the end of his notional eight years have heralded an even worse disaster?

In contrast to the potentially disastrous political situation for the GOP which a narrow 2020 win would have engendered, the prospect for both Trump and the entire Republican party for 2022 and 2024 looks bright.

In fact, looking even further out, 2028 would not be marked by the usual two-term election malaise as the political reality in that respect is that it would appear for Trump’s successor as a follow on from a single term.

Sometimes a loss, no matter how much it hurts, can turn out to be a blessing in disguise, and 2020 is very much that blessing. The Biden administration’s policy plans have been waylaid by Omicron, Manchin and Sinema, inflation, Putin’s war, rising urban crime and internal party divisions. So far Biden’s 2020 win has not inflicted too much damage than can’t quickly be fixed in 2022/24

About forty thousand votes in two presidential elections in a row will have determined the American landscape for a generation after the midterms -- such are the imponderables of fate in a polarized society.

First off, the author of this essay postulates that Trump would have won in a squeaker or that it would've been a tie and that Mike Pence would have cast the deciding vote. Had that been the case, for sure there would've been a hot civil war and given the Stalinization of the DoD, the situation would've been in doubt right there. But I don't think it was going to be a squeaker; he was on his way to a clear victory if not a big win until the toilet overflowed in Atlanta.

Second, he assumes that everything we are experiencing right now would have happened had Trump been re-elected. I would say that that's a complete crock, especially in terms of the economy, with the exception of the continuing madness over the General Tso's Sickness. Hard to game out the might-have-beens on that front but given the anger over mask and vaccine mandates by normal Americans, much of that garbage would have been tossed, along with Fauci. For sure, China would still be in check, Russia would never have invaded Ukraine, Iran might have finally collapsed, oil would be flowing and gas would still be about $2.50 a gallon, among other things.

It should be noted that Trump is responsible for giving the Democrats the tools to rig the election, insofar as being bamboozled with the "two weeks to flatten the curve" and Operation Warp Speed for vaccines, instead of going to the mattresses on therapeutics and not locking the country down. Oh well. In any case, these what-ifs are all imponderable and a waste of time. But the one observation that I am in agreement on is that the destruction being wrought on us by the Democrat Party, the media, and leftists in and out of government is out in the open, repulsive in the extreme and is directly felt by everyone in their wallets and psyches. I think that we are at a cultural/societal inflection point. The problem is, it's only been a little over 14 months. We still have another 33 to go -- with or without Sponge Brain Square Depends in the Oval Office. And that assumes we win it all in '24 along with the expected Dem wipeout this coming November.

Well, what's done is done and what's to come is anyone's guess. All we can do is the best we can in the here and now. I'm scared out of my mind but at the same time there is always reason for hope.

Trump? DeSantis? Bueller? Who knows. I'm looking beyond electoral politics to a sea change in culture and society away from the headlong plunge towards Sodom and Gomorrah and back towards normalcy. The forces arrayed against us for sure are doing everything they can to prevent it. But they're not infallible. We just have to hang tough and hang together.
