The Morning Report - 6/15/22


Good morning, kids. The results from yesterday's primaries in South Carolina, Nevada, Maine, and North Dakota are in and Trump-backed or otherwise non-RINO populist candidates roared to victory. The one exception was Nancy Mace, who beat back challenger Katie Arrington. For a recap of all the races, you can click here for Breitbart's election night live wire, as they seem to have the most extensive coverage.

The big news of the night, though, came out of south Texas where, in a special election, a seat in an overwhelmingly Latino district that the Democrats have held for 150 years flipped Republican.

This qualifies as a political earthquake. In a special primary election to fill out the term of former Rep. Filemon Vela, who resigned his House seat in March, GOP candidate Mayra Flores received 50.98% of the vote, making a runoff election unnecessary. Re-elect Flores will represent the Texas 34 Congressional District that runs along the Gulf Coast to the Mexican border, and which is 84.54% Hispanic.

Hispanic voters are dumping the Democrats, a trend that has the potential to doom the party at a national level. Rep. Flores will serve only until January, but will be the incumbent when the seat is up for election in November. However, as the Texas Tribune notes,

The special election was unique in that it was held under the previous lines of the 34th District, which [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Joe Biden won by only 4 percentage points. But redistricting made the district more friendly to Democrats in November, when the Democratic nominee is U.S. Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, D-McAllen.

If the new more Democratic district elects Gonzalez in November, the Dems will have a talking point to refute the trend of Hispanic voters going Republican. But incumbents have a large advantage in most races and Joe Biden’s performance in office is a millstone around the neck of any Democrat so a Dem win is far from a certain outcome. And the trend is likely to continue in other districts with heavily Hispanic populations. The loss of support among Hispanic voters is a disaster for the Democrats of gigantic significance.

Winds of change, my friends. That said, everywhere else we're in a massive societal/cultural/political hurricane akin to the eye of Jupiter. More and more people are staring into the maw of Democrat created disaster and are horrified. The only thing we can do is vote. The vicissitudes of Dao-Min Yen notwithstanding, the news of MAGA-style candidates rising is offset by the fact that the only alternative to the Democrats, the GOP, hates the base almost as much as the Dems themselves. Case in point:


Fewer Americans support a ban on so-called assault weapons than Quinnipiac has ever recorded, the pollster reported on June 8.

Americans are about evenly divided on whether the government should ban assault weapons, the poll found, the lowest show of support for such a ban since February 2013, when Quinnipiac first started asking about it.

A plurality of respondents, including most Republicans and independents and 31 percent of Democrats, told Quinnipiac that mental health issues are the main cause of mass shootings committed by young people. Only 19 percent of all respondents say "the availability of guns" is the main cause. A majority of Americans, meanwhile, oppose any efforts to limit the number of firearms in the country.

These results come even as mainstream media outlets and Democratic politicians, including [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Joe Biden, have ramped up calls for an assault-weapon ban in light of recent mass shootings and ahead of this year's midterm elections.


On June 12 a bipartisan Senate gun control agreement was announced.

Breitbart News reported that the agreement includes a requirement for an “investigative period” during background checks for gun purchases for persons under 21 years of age. The agreement does not indicate any stipulation for how long this “investigative period” may last or how long it could stretch the time it takes to complete a background check.

On June 14, MacFarlane tweeted, “Sen Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announces he will support bi-partisan framework on new gun control and school safety legislation.”

MacFarlane further indicated McConnell’s position, partially quoting him: “the bipartisan group has done the best they can” to reach a gun control agreement.

I'll be honest; getting it up to vote for a party that does this is damn near impossible, irrespective of what it means if a Democrat wins (fair and square or otherwise). I get it, the Left controls the media and therefore they control the messaging and the language. But at this stage, to play along with them and accept the narrative is worse than surrender. It's collaboration. In the wake of what happened in Uvalde, every damn Republican should have spoken in one voice to condemn Democrat social policies that bred the monster who perpetrated the shooting, the Democrat policies that led to the incompetence and cowardice of the police and full throated defense of the Second Amendment as the only solution that would have prevented or otherwise mitigated the carnage.

And that goes for every catastrophe that has been blamed on America and the American culture for the past 60 years that the Democrat-Left have used as an indictment against and casus belli to dismantle us. But no. We've had low-T cuck collaborators from George Romney to Mitt Romney selling us down the river for decades now. And that is why we got Trump in 2016, and please God, a growing army of Trumps going forward.

Digging in a bit deeper into this latest sellout, it's not as "common sense" as its pimps declare. In fact, it's actually rather dangerous to our liberties given the current political climate to those of us who oppose this tyranny.

The proponents of these laws claim that law-abiding gun owners have nothing to fear. They also say that most shootings are done by mentally unstable people. Hence if a friend or a psychiatrist, or a family member can alert a judge about the potential of violence, a shootout can be prevented. Precious lives can be saved. 

But this best possible scenario where this law may work is a utopian picture where each and every family member, friend, doctor, law enforcement official, and court judge is both morally upright and objective.

But laws must not be judged solely by how they will be used in utopian climates but also by how they could be misused and exploited by rogue elements in a worse possible scenario. . .

. . . What makes laws such as these alarming is the climate in which they are being passed.

The protesters of January 6 were and still are being subjected to draconian punishment.  The partisan January 6 Select Committee's sole function is to harass and intimidate political opponents. Parents concerned about their children being indoctrinated with Critical Race Theory were branded as domestic terrorists. Biden called the Trump supporters "the most extreme political organization that's existed in recent American history." Then there is the ominous Disinformation Governance Board, which intends to sit in judgment of the pronouncement of citizens. There were and perhaps still are government-ordered vaccine and mask mandates that override the democratic right of choice. There were lockdowns that restricted movement of citizens.

It comes as no surprise that the Democrats are supporting these draconian red-flag laws.

It is disappointing that Five House Republicans and 10 Republican senators are also pushing these laws. Yes, some among these are disgruntled never-Trumper Republicans and some are turncoats, but what about the rest? This continues to be the risk when Republicans retake the House and the Senate, the GOP may be in control but the strings of some puppets may be in the hands of the Democrats.

These red flag laws will be another step toward authoritarianism where the government encroaches into the private space of the citizen.

Bingo. Recall that the former Soviet Union locked people up in insane asylums because they deemed them crazy for wanting to emigrate to the west. That was literally a "red flag." Imagine a red flag law that allowed the confiscation of anyone's firearms if they knew the hapless patsies of the FBI's Gretchen Whitmer entrapment scam. Hell, if you lived on the same block as any of them. You don't need to be Nostra-freaking-damus to see where this is going. It is a fact that our law enforcement agencies and most of our courts are nothing more than corrupt rubber stamp enforcers of this junta and have zero regard for the protections afforded to us in the Constitution. Worse, my feelings about the mindset of the average beat cop, National Guardsmen or uniformed military soldier when given orders from this junta.

If you oppose crackpot race theories, transexual deviants grooming your children, or as "Va" Gina McCarthy shrieks "the transition to green energy," then you're crazy. And sure as night follows day, you need to have your weapons confiscated since your dangerous "insane" thoughts are a red flag.
