The Morning Report — 2/13/23


Good morning kids. So, there was evidently some big game yesterday to which my give-a-shitometer registered somewhere between flatline and fuck-all. If it meant something to you, either congratulations or go overturn another car.

Back here on Planet Looney-Bin, also known as the former United States of America and the civilized world, yet more Red Chinese spy balloons are floating over our territory and being intercepted. Yet this musing from one of the Air Force's top brass is both laugh-out-loud funny and vomit-inducing:

When asked if the U.S. military had ruled out an extraterrestrial origin for the unidentified objects, [U.S. Air Force General Glen] VanHerck responded: “I’ll let the intel community and the counterintelligence community figure that out. I haven’t ruled out anything.”

“At this point we continue to assess every threat or potential threat, unknown, that approaches North America with an attempt to identify it,” VanHerck continued.

A U.S. Air Force F-16 fighter jet shot down shot down the unidentified ‘octagonal’ object over Lake Huron using a Sidewinder missile.

It's so outrageously dumb but the implication is clear: the Biden Junta's calculus is that there is a large enough percentage of the American people who are braindead enough to believe this. It's shrewd and evil, yet perfectly understandable given the fact that since these objects are indeed Chi-Com military balloons – the filthy Mongoloids are incensed that we had the gall to shoot them down despite floating across our territorial borders and even demanding we return the wreckage! – the prima facie evidence of rank incompetence (or worse) is hard to dismiss even for the lowest of LIVs.

It also helps to distract from Seymour Hersh's blockbuster allegations that Joe Biden, consciously or unconsciously, gave the order for the United States military to blow up the NordStream pipeline, a deliberate act of sabotage against the Russian Federation and in fact an act of war. Although, the media's complete ignoring of one of their icons' damning accusations against America speaks volumes. Yeah, they loved it when he attacked the American government. Except this time the government is anything but American.

In February 2022, just weeks before the Russian invasion of the Ukraine, Joe Biden told a journalist at the White House that if Russia were to invade, it would mean the “end” of the Nord Stream pipeline. When pressed on how he would accomplish this, Biden simply stated that he “promised” the pipeline would no longer be operable. 

[Seymour] Hersh argues that Biden kept his word. . .

. . . The sheer hubris of the alleged assault boggles the mind. If, as seems clear, Joe Biden followed through on his word and had the Nord Stream pipelines disabled, it puts the lie to all the high-minded talk about defending “democracy” in the West. No American voted for conflict with a nuclear-armed Russia. Congress did not declare war, as the Constitution mandates. Nor did the United States make any bones of consulting with its ostensible European allies. . .

. . . There is a deeper truth at the bottom of the Batlic, amidst the Nord Stream wreckage. It isn’t just Germany that is no longer a sovereign power—in fact, the very concept of the nation-state has been destroyed. All of Europe is an American satrapy. France, England, Italy, Austria, Luxembourg—these petty powers have no real existence as independent entities. They are neither economically nor militarily self-reliant. They cannot even secure their needed energy requirements without outside intervention. . .

. . . The nation-state died in 1945. The mid-20th century Anglo-American-Soviet alliance made sure of it. American liberals and Soviet communists at Tehran, Yalta, and Potsdam marched in complete lockstep on the future of the world order. There were tensions, of course, but there was no doubt in the minds of either Franklin Roosevelt or Josef Stalin that the postwar order would be fundamentally leftist.

Both liberals and communists could agree that the highest human aim was the satisfaction of man’s material needs (filling his stomach) and the elevation of the oppressed. For the communists, such a world would come into being with the global revolution of the proletariat. Liberals, on the other hand, thought it could come into being by exporting McDonald’s, blue jeans, and rap music on a global scale. 

In our own time, even this difference has disappeared. The American Left now openly encourages the “marginalized” and “oppressed” to fight back against “systemic racism” on a global scale. American embassies across the planet fly the pride flag and display Black Lives Matter signs. The economic proletariat under communism transformed into a racial proletariat under liberalism. . .

. . . Today, a transnational ruling “elite” centered in Washington, D.C. exerts quasi-planetary rule in the name of “human rights.” It is wrong to call this arrangement in any way American. Ordinary middle-class voters in the heartland have zero say in the methods and ends of this system. Americans, of course, are forced to pay, in blood and treasure, to keep this framework in place. . .

. . . The Nord Stream bombing displays enormous chutzpah from the American ruling elite. But it is also a clarion call for all those with eyes to see and ears to hear: A world dominated by D.C. is a world without freedom and real political life. Europe will never again be a heart of culture and civilization as long as it remains in the thrall of D.C.’s power. Until that yoke is thrown off, Europe will remain a medieval history theme park, its churches empty, its militaries laughable, and its people morally and spiritually degraded. Americans outside the hallowed halls of financial and political power in New York, D.C., and Silicon Valley are little better off. 

Despite the fact that a D.C. dominated world would in fact be a Beijing/Davos/Brussels dominated world with D.C. as a satellite branch perhaps, read the whole thing. It crystallizes a lot of things that I have been talking about for quite a while now; in essence the illusion and myth of both the American two-party system, the supposed independent nature and morality of those in the intel and law enforcement communities and now, at least in part, the need to take a second more serious look at the attitudes of people like Sy Hersh and others on the left. At least to the extent of recognizing and taking serious the ones who railed specifically against the depredations and hypocrisy of our vaunted institutions and not of the founding itself. I am of the belief that there is a radical (pun intended) difference between people like Hersh and Glenn Greenwald and say Ibram X. "Krement" Kendi and Michael Moore.

We have seen first hand what the military industrial complex along with the intel, foreign service and now law enforcement bureaucracies have done since Afghanistan and of course Vietnam. We have seen what they have done not only abroad but to the American people here at home who have dared speak out in protest to stolen elections, cultural depravity, lockdowns and the litany of issues, real and imagined, being used to completely steal our freedom and eradicate the last vestiges of our nation and society.

I'm not saying it's aliens . . . but it sure as hell is an alien culture looking "to serve man" or at least America as founded up on a platter.
