The Morning Report — 12/8/22

tillisbipart.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and a bit of housekeeping before getting into the main event.

After today, I will no longer be linking to the New York Post. This morning as I was gathering the links, I came across this article, and, aside from my own personal interest in this subject it was one that I thought you all would be as well:

Former Nazi "Secretary of Evil," 97, Speaks Out for the First Time

So, after a long history of this person, her deeds, her quotes, survivors' quotes, etc. etc., I get to the last paragraph:

The end of Furchner’s proceedings also comes at a particularly fraught time, as rapper Kanye West’s rants praising Hitler and Nazis have led to a surge in anti-Semitism. Earlier this week, NYPD statistics also revealed that anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York City were up 125% in November compared to the same month in 2021.

Jonathan Greenblatt, national director and CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said Jewish communities are bracing for backlash after West’s comments, warning that the vitriol was “escalating from ugliness to incitement.”

Seriously? Are you fucking kidding me? Kanye West. Translation: DONALD TRUMP and the MAGA MOVEMENT. To say that these two stories are even tangentially related is, at best, a stretch. In point of fact, they have nothing to do with each other. But, let's play along for a moment. The "reporter," some bimbo with the byline of Olivia Land wants to link a nonagenarian Nazi concentration camp secretary to the current rise of anti-Semitism. Okay. Yet, with everything from Al Sharpton to Jessie Jackson to Calypso Louie to "The Squad" to Obama/Jeremiah Wright and on and on and on for freaking decades, this hack chooses Ye.

And who does she quote? Jonathan Greenblatt, a self-gassing apostate Jew who runs the ADL. The only defamation they are anti is that against Democrats and leftists. The real anti-semitism of, say, the religion of peace peaceniks and BLM and Antifa are to be excused if not defended.

The in-your-face, amateur hour, cheap propaganda hackery of Land and her editors is embarrassing, and disgusting. Look, a newspaper has every right to publish editorials for or against people, policies and whatever. Even the Post's anti-Trump ravings, rabid and frothing at the mouth as they were, were kept to the editorial pages. I put up with the Podhoretz's and McCarthy's because of the value of the Devine's and Harlan-Reynolds'.

No more. This kind of propaganda is what I expect of the NY Times, WaPo and CNN. The last thing we need is another one of them. So, thank you and fuck you New York Post. "Never again," pun intended.

Moving on, yesterday, in the wake of wife-beating, Jew-hating, (hello? Olivia Land?) slum-lording Raphael Warnock's big "win" in the Georgia Senate seat runoff (and this poor man's Creflo Dollar-looking doppelgänger is bitching about "voter suppression" despite a record turnout at the polls) as I was bemoaning the state of affairs vis a vis electoral politics and who wields the real power, this link only underscores the near futility of voting, even if the GOP wins.

Proposed changes to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) rules will strip access to public waters and devastate local economies along most of the eastern U.S. coastline, according to boating and fishing advocacy groups.

The North Atlantic Right Whale Vessel Strike Reduction Rule will decimate the U.S.’s multi-billion-dollar boating and fishing industry without protecting endangered North Atlantic right whales (NARW) from severe injuries and deaths, the Center for Sportfishing Policy (CSP) and the South Carolina Boating and Fishing Alliance (SCBFA) told the Daily Caller. . .

. . . “When you talk about putting a 10-knot or an 11.5 mph speed limit on boats over 35 feet, you are suddenly making a day trip to the Gulf Stream or going offshore, in general, more dangerous and more time-consuming,” Brannon said. “It’s not just the time it takes to travel out to sea that is dangerous, but how long it takes to steer cargo ships into the harbor.”

The federal government’s regulation is also causing an untenable economic situation for boating and fishing industries in South Carolina and along the east coast, Brannon warned. “We represent about 23,000 jobs and over 600 related businesses in the $5 billion fishing and boating sector. And those are the businesses — when the federal government does not take into account any balance between the economy and ecology — are the ones that are going to be hurt the most,” he said. . .

. . . Six Republican U.S. Senators, including South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, signed a letter urging  NOAA administrator Richard Spinrad to “modify its proposal so that the NARW is protected, but the unintended consequences … can be eliminated.”

Kevin Bishop, a spokesman for Sen. Graham, told the Caller the rule was “an example of government overreach and government not effectively engaging stakeholders.”

“Senator Graham remains concerned about the safety impact the proposed rule will have on cargo ships and their pilots,” Bishop said, adding that the senator worries the rule will “lead to further delays and exacerbate already strained supply chains” and impact East Coast ports that are part of the National Port Readiness Network.

Say what you will about Lindsay Graham, but he is the duly elected Senator from the state of South Carolina. His purview – in theory – along with his colleagues in the Senate and in the House is the passage of laws that reflect the will of the people who elected him and whom he represents.

With all due respect, that is to say none whatsoever, who the hell elected NOAA administrator Richard Spinrad?

By what authority as laid out in the United States Constitution does this person have to enact what is in fact a law?

And Senator Graham "remains concerned?" If I were the Senator from the State of South Carolina, I'd take a stroll over to the NOAA, march into this prick's cubicle, and do a Pelosi by tearing up the law in his face. Or make it into a barbed-wire-wrapped flaming pineapple and insert it sideways in a certain aperture.

Look, no doubt, the installation of Warnock into the Senate is not exactly healthy for our nation and society. But considering that at best it's on life support and since 2020 is in fact clinically dead, what's the big deal? Are we worried that the filibuster will be killed and leftist judges will be installed? Hell, at least half the judiciary and SCOTUS itself is teetering on the brink. Law schools are pumping out commie apparatchiks now by the bushel. Ditto every damn school including medical schools. But I digress.

So, Warnock's in and it's now 51-49 in the Senate. Look at this and tell me if it really makes a damn bit of difference?

A dozen Senate Republicans already voted to abolish the Defense of Marriage Act, eliminating both marriage and religious freedom in one fell swoop, just as the Supreme Court was moving to protect it. Some of the senators then had the chutzpah to claim that they did it to protect religious freedom. The betrayal is bad enough, treating voters like bamboozled idiots is worse.

And that’s just the beginning of the lame duck sellout session.

Senate Republican RINOs are rushing through their betrayals while they hope no one is paying attention. Next up is amnesty for illegal aliens. Every time you hear about secret negotiations to reach a deal on immigration, it’s always the same damn sellout that it’s been for decades.

The latest incarnation of “immigration reform” once again promises more money for “border security” in exchange for amnesty for illegal aliens. Trading amnesty for border security is like trading your alarm code for a better alarm system. And after multiple rounds of these deals, our border is more open than ever and our country is more filled with illegal migrants than ever.

While Senate sellouts are conducting secret negotiations in the latest incarnation of amnesty (as befits a nation where the people answer to the government, not the other way around), it starts by ratifying Obama’s illegal DACA amnesty to legalize at least 2 million illegal aliens.

And, if past immigration dirty deals are anything to go by, the dirty deal will get much worse.

Republican proponents of making Obama’s lawlessness, lawful, call this a “DACA fix”. An actual fix would end the lawlessness and enforce immigration law, instead of finding new spin for their sellouts. But many of the Senate Republicans who had voted to abolish marriage and religious freedom have also been longtime supporters of illegal alien amnesty. And this is their hour.

Most Americans, in poll after poll, say that they’re sick and tired of Biden’s immigration policies, and yet, somehow, a number of Senate RINOs looked at those numbers and decided that they want a piece of those 60% disapproval ratings while giving Democrats millions more voters.

Why try for win-win, when lose-lose is so much better.

Senate Republicans keep promising that their latest bipartisan deal will finally secure the border. Only the most naive human being alive who had already bought the Brooklyn Bridge with the crypto millions from FTX would take them seriously. Money won’t secure the border. Only a consensus to follow the laws of our country will do that. Politicians who cut the heart out of immigration laws while promising that they’ll enforce them in the future don’t mean it.

Just like a drunk who promises to stop drinking tomorrow doesn’t mean it. . .

. . . Every so often, the RINOs remind their voters that they don’t work for them, they serve the criminals, junkies, illegal aliens and worsening every crisis that we are already drowning in.

While you hang up your Christmas lights and light your menorah, in Washington D.C. they’re finally getting to work on their real jobs of destroying our lives, our beliefs and our country.

Look, Warnock's gonna Warnock. It is what it is and I can sort of deal with that. Thom Tillis on the other hand, not so much.

After surrendering to Democrats on a myriad of hot-button issues, Senate Republicans may get yet another chance to sell out their base before the year’s end — this time, on a last-minute immigration bill reportedly engineered by North Carolina GOP Sen. Thom Tillis that would provide amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. . .

. . . While it’s unclear whether the Senate plans to take up the bill before the current congressional session ends, Tillis’s last-minute attempt to ram through an amnesty package before Republicans take control of the House of Representatives next month runs contrary to claims issued by his office earlier this year. Back in June, a representative from the North Carolina senator’s office told Fox News there was “not much to negotiate” on immigration until President Joe Biden “enforce[s] immigration laws” and takes action “to end the crisis at the [U.S. southern] border.”

At this rate, the Democrats don't have to rig or otherwise "fortify" elections. With scum like Thom Tillis, no one will show up at the polls anyway.
