The Morning Report — 12/7/22

1941-1981.jpg

Good morning, kids. To paraphrase America's sweetheart, Ilhan "Bro-Fo"/Nur/Burqawitz/Ikeelyou" Omar, 81 years ago today, some people did some things in Hawaii. If anyone of a generation younger than that of Baby Boomer understands the meaning of the phrase "Remember Pearl Harbor," it would be a miracle. Unless of course they were taught in school that we deserved it. I don't have my dog-eared copy of Ibram X. Krement's Jive Kampf handy to confirm that, but I'm sure it's in there, under "battleship privilege."

In any case, is anyone really surprised by the outcome in Georgia? I suppose I can be positive insofar as the nation has devolved only to the point where the regime needs to rig an election just enough so that its preferred candidate can overcome a vote deficit to appear to eke out the win. We're not at the point where only one party involved in the race and the preferred candidate gets 99% of the vote with nearly 100% voter turnout. Not yet anyway, so be of good cheer. In all seriousness, the alarming thing here, of course is that the enemy has enough of a following that it is able to engineer these "victories" in the first place, and that speaks to a whole other level of societal dissolution hinted at in my snark about Pearl Harbor, which cannot be solved overnight, if it will be solved at all.

On our post-election post-mortem podcast episode, friend, colleague and election/polling guru extraordinaire Dave in Fla urged us not to be dispirited as that is a key weapon that the enemy uses to suppress us. I'm not dispirited so much as I am enraged. More than that, I'm frustrated since every avenue open to me as an individual and citizen has now been closed. In any case, considering that we are ruled by what is an unconstitutional, unelected, titanic bureaucracy that issues decrees that have the force of law, what real purpose do elections serve, other than to preserve an illusion of a two-party system, the will of the people, regular order, etc. etc.?

If the system itself has been so corrupted as to make ballot harvesting, ballot dumping, mass unverified mail-in voting, no ID requirement and so on legal, at least to the extent that when actual fraud occurs that it goes unpunished, then we no longer have a nation of laws but of men, as our Founders had warned and tried as best they could to prevent. It's corruption from top to bottom. Here are just two examples of how, even if Walker did manage the win, along with all the other candidates that should have given us 54-55 Senate seats and upwards of 520 in the House or more, it wouldn't really have made a difference. First . . .

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) held a private event Thursday with a panelist that pushed to abolish the agency, along with others against immigration detention that strongly criticized immigration enforcement during the meeting, according to an internal document and a source with knowledge of what occurred in the meeting who spoke with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

ICE used the event “to share ideas and inform future concepts” on the “Alternatives to Detention” program, which the agency implemented in 2004 to monitor illegal immigrants released into the country with trackers like ankle bracelets and cell phones as they await court proceedings. During the discussion, the activists criticized the monitoring of illegal immigrants, the source with knowledge, who was not authorized to speak publicly, told the DCNF. . .

. . . The Biden [junta] is increasingly aligning itself with anti-ICE groups, Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a conservative immigration reform group, Communications and Government Relations Director RJ Hauman told the DCNF.

“At this point it is not surprising that ICE would have someone like this influencing policy — the current administration is trying to abolish it from within. The end goal for them isn’t only pivoting away from traditional detention and a handful of effective alternatives, but to release illegal aliens without any tracking or monitoring at all,” Hauman said.

So, the agency tasked with protecting our borders, national sovereignty and indeed the citizenry from a mass criminal invasion (the invasion itself as a criminal act, if not an act of war, not necessarily but for sure actual criminals among the migrant hordes) has taken it upon itself to de facto abolish itself. For sure, this is approved by if not initiated at the highest levels of the executive branch of our government. Oval Office or Kalorama; either/or at this point. Would this be happening if Trump let alone any other Republican were president? Let us assume that either of those actually is allowed to win the 2024 election and that they institute any sane, rational and no doubt wildly popular directives to seal the border, cut off money for illegals both here and just across the Rio Grande and, orgasmic dream, ramp up mass deportations of everyone here illegally. Do you think that anyone in that agency would do as ordered or would there be mass insubordination?

Now, in another part of the swamp, we have this madness:

If you put money into a 401(k), beware. Until now, the law always required fund managers entrusted with your savings to invest the money where it’s expected to get the top profit for you. Period. But late last month, Biden’s Labor Department announced a rule change that goes into effect at the end of January. It will allow fund managers to invest your money in the stocks of companies that favor left-wing policies, even if they earn a lower return.

It’s legalized theft. The future earnings on your retirement nest egg are being sacrificed to advance a woke agenda.

A lower return means you’ll have to work more years before retiring or start putting more into your 401(k) — or settle for a lesser standard of living in the final years of your life.

Biden’s rule paves the way for your 401(k) savings to be put into what are called ESG funds. But you can stop it from happening if you’re vigilant. 

Biden’s doing an end run around democracy, trying to change corporate America without having to pass laws in Congress. Companies need investment capital. The more 401(k) money is controlled by ESG funds, the more pressure can be put on companies to adopt the ESG agenda — climate change, diversity and unionization — whether they like it or not. Biden’s buddies on Wall Street will do the financial arm-twisting.

Democrats invented ballot harvesting. Now they’re on to 401(k) harvesting.

Betsy McCaughey just nailed it right there. But there's a hell of a lot more to it than just propping up scams and schemes that would never in a billion years have a chance of success, legislatively or in the free market. The theft of your retirement money and effectively putting the regime in control of it will, "put y'all back in chains!" as it were. Well, not "back" since you weren't in them in the first place. And that's the problem, at least in their eyes. Social Security is all but bankrupt. 401(k)s represent the ability of individual citizens to control their own financial security via the free enterprise system. It's proven wildly popular, profitable and, here's something for you Lefty assholes out there, "sustainable!" Incredibly so. Social Security? If you want to be charitable, you could call it a Ponzi scheme but that would be an insult to Charles Ponzi. At least the money he made wasn't necessarily "lost."

On another front, and for the moment positive news, this attempt to prop up government censorship via this JCPA garbage has been derailed. Psaki-psircling back for a moment, newspapers and other traditional media outlets were going the way of the dodo not only because of the rise of the internet as an alternate carrier of news and information, but as the outlet for messages and news that went around the filter of government approved/culturally approved censors and arbiters of the narrative.

Why do you think they want to destroy Elon Musk and Twitter? It's all about control. So, does what happened in Georgia at the end of the day really make a difference? If it gets us to a point where we take to the streets and Atlas shrugs, then I'm down for the struggle.

UPDATE: I wanted to state something but it took commenter Lady In Black to jar it loose via this exchange:

Did anybody here seriously spend one moment thinking Walker had a chance? I'm done with that game. It can't be won anymore. I simply have lost all caring and hoping for an America that is dead and not coming back. The left is "winning" at every turn. I find no reason to believe it will change. I can thank the GOP in part for the end of America. We have no savior that is coming that can overcome their treachery, cheating, lies and totalitarianism. Harsh truth.

My response:

You have just reached the first plateau my dear. The sooner we free our minds from these illusions the better prepared we'll be for the battle ahead.

More and more people no longer trust government, the media and now elections. It is going to reach critical mass, especially when, not if, the entire economy crashes.

And that's really a good thing, or at least a necessary thing, despite what we are going to have to endure to at least have a chance to come out the other end with a shot at national renewal.

    ABOVE THE FOLD, BREAKING, NOTEWORTHY

  • "This is not to suggest that Rainey or Fields is involved in a plot to destroy the power stations. But it points to slovenly police work by local and county officials that is probably hampering the FBI’s investigation into who carried out the attack."

  • Betsy McCaughey: "[so-called quote-unquote "president"] Joe Biden is threatening the returns of 401(k) savings accounts, risking millions of workers’ comfortable retirements. If you put money into a 401(k), beware . . . Biden’s Labor Department . . . will allow fund managers to invest your money in the stocks of companies that favor left-wing policies, even if they earn a lower return. It’s legalized theft. The future earnings on your retirement nest egg are being sacrificed to advance a woke agenda."
