The Morning Report — 8/12/22


Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and a story out of my erstwhile hometown has some relevance to the situation we find ourselves in. A buck naked homeless derelict was just strolling through the City Hall subway station the other morning, as commuters walked by like it was nothing. So, what's worse, the naked guy or the non-reaction from the crowd? In the season 2 premiere of the podcast (sidebar and here), CBD posited his concern that like the jaded straphangers, by this November and certainly two years from now, the American people will have become so inured to the economic destruction visited upon them that they're just not going to remember the Gestapo raid on Mar-a-Lago, let alone the theft of the 2020 election. My personal fear is that the American people will have become inured to an increasingly tyrannical government that when the FBI come for their neighbors, they'll just keep their heads down, draw the shades and turn up the volume of The Kardashians to drown out the screams and cries until the sirens fade away.

Whatever one postulates on the reasons behind the raid — the FBI looking to plant evidence, looking for the evidence about its treasonous acts in overthrowing Trump, creating a photo op, or merely sniffing Melania's panties and whacking off to it — this is absolutely unprecedented in the history of this nation. FDR's roundup of Nisei Americans and throwing them into concentration camps is up there, to be sure. But this is an outrage. Meh, why am I getting so worked up about it? I mean, what do you expect from people who will openly and proudly use their power to persecute their political enemies? They literally destroyed our society in 2020 under the pretext of a public health emergency and then the death of a criminal at the hands of police officers doing their duty to create chaos that ultimately undermined our electoral system so as to enable the rigging/theft of a national election.

Did Joe "Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants" know about or even give the go-ahead to Lavrenty Garland and Fey Wray for the raid? Hell, Joey doesn't even know the time of day and shakes hands with the air, but go back to the Halcyon days after the 2010 midterms. Did Barack Obama know that Lois Lerner, John Koskinen and the rest of the IRS, now "fortified" (pun intended) to be bigger than the United States Marine Corps, were going to do everything in their power to sabotage the granting of 501-c3 non-profit status to any political group that was not Democrat or Leftist, specifically any that were affiliated with the Tea Party movement? The salient point is that it didn't matter, the same as it didn't matter if whoever is controlling the drooling paste-eater-in-chief out of Kalorama knew of or gave the order to hit Mar-a-Lago.

White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre had a pre-written response at the ready for when she would inevitably be asked this week whether President Joe Biden had any advance notice that the FBI would be raiding Donald Trump’s home in Florida.

She said no, and that’s probably true. She also repeated the line that the Justice Department works independently. That’s probably true too. And that’s what’s so terrifying.

Democrats and the permanent bureaucracy in Washington are simply following their vindictive impulses. If there’s anything new here, it’s their view that gaining power in 2020 was a license to crush the political momentum that put Trump in office and continues to upset the establishment that preferred things the old way — when their interests were served and to hell with everyone else. . .

. . . The same way Democrats never have to tell the media to write each day that Republicans suck, Biden doesn’t need to tell his Attorney General Merrick Garland or the FBI what to do. He didn’t need to say a word to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. They don’t have private conversations on how they’re next going to stick it to the people they hate. They have a common understanding and, besides, they talk about it in public anyway.

“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” — Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, three days after the 2020 election.

“[Trump] must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” — Democrat Rep. Jim McGovern in June.

“Merrick Garland Do Your Job!” — Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson in June.

When this is how the party talks openly about its opposition, there’s no need for any kind of private direction or assurance. They want everyone to know.

There's also the parallel question of whether or not they understand that Donald Trump is innocent of any crimes, and more to the point, that those who support his agenda and more broadly those who support the ideals of America as founded are also not guilty. At the highest levels, they don't give a shit. It's purely will to power. On the broader level, they are, as the great Eric Hoffer labeled them "true believers." They are so absolutely sure of their righteousness and our evil, that anything is on the table to achieve justice or paradise on Earth. "By any means necessary."

On the belt buckle of every Nazi soldier in the Second World War was the inscription Gott Mit Uns, "God is with us." "To Serve and Protect" and "Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity" also have a nice ring to them, n'est pas?

Whatever the 11-dimensional chess that the junta is engaging in to either goad Trump into running thinking he'll get crushed, or more likely to goad a Trump supporter into committing an act of violence that can be used as a pretext to really seize absolute power — and given the nature of the FBI they can just manufacture a false flag quicker than you can say Gleiwitz Radio Station — the salient point remains that this latest abomination will not be the end of it. Along with the additional IRS agents who are not going to be auditing anyone except non-Democrats and punishing them via the process, every other apparatchik in every other agency is going to harass the living shit out of us until we cry Uncle Joe.

So where does this leave us going forward? It's either Balkanization or a civil war that leads to liberation or subjugation. If somehow we are to liberate ourselves from this tyranny, there will still be a sizable group in this country of true believers that will never accept it.

It took the U.S. to forcibly dismantle the Nazi systems of Germany and to force Japan to remake their systems.

It may take another, more powerful nation to disband our totalitarian systems, as well. Barring the return of Christ, it might just have to be Russia or China to make our Deep State agencies go the way of the Cheka, the Stasi, and the God-Emperors of Japan.

No President can do this. It's too entrenched. Overwhelming force must be applied, and no President, not even the most Trumpian, has that kind of force.

So when I get black-pilled and told Russia is fighting the American Empire of Lies, I can only wish them Godspeed, for we obviously share the same enemy. Putin's fighting the American Deep State? My answer? "Good! At least someone is."

On that cheerful note, have a good weekend.


  • "Retrenchment has begun on the right. Bereft of a figure like Donald Trump, the right is now moving back toward various old, hollow positions. There is hard work being done to shift the political and intellectual foundation of the right by figures such as Oren Cass, but the inertia has not yet been overcome."

  • Glenn Reynolds: "Looking around, it seems pretty clear that this isn’t a problem just for BlackRock and the Democrat Party. All over America — and to a substantial degree, the world — institutions seem to be run on behalf of the people who control them rather than to support their missions or the people they’re supposed to serve."
