The Morning Report — 3/24/23


Good morning kids. So, Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants was dragged out for some event -- correction: the 13th anniversary of Obamacare and Death Panels! --where, as he was hugging a baby (which is funny because if his deep Catholic convictions aren't killing them in utero his hands and proboscis are simultaneously sniffing their hair and groping their training bras), another one was crying in the background. To which the depraved criminal pervert assured the group:

“It’s OK, it’s all right. In fact, I like babies better than people.”

You know who else liked babies, and dogs, better than people? Somewhere up in Heaven, Yogi Berra and Samuel Goldwyn are throwing up.

So, while arguably the most corrupt individual to ever hold office in American politics (legitimately elected or otherwise) who sold out to every criminal and thug including this nation's mortal enemies for over 50 years vomits up division, hatred and lies between gobs of Maypo, bile and halitosis, the non-case against his polar opposite in every way, Donald Trump, is seemingly falling apart.

That’s right. No indictment. No handcuffs. No perp walk. The radical left has been yearning for this moment for years. And for a few days, it seemed like that wish might finally come true. However, it now appears to be just another chapter in a never-ending fantasy that always falls short of becoming a reality.

The first hint that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment of Trump was going sour was when former Michael Cohen legal advisor Robert Costello appeared as a surprise witness on Monday. Trump touted Costello’s testimony as conclusive and irrefutable evidence of his innocence. And he may not have been exaggerating.

It sure does look like Costello’s testimony, along with the evidence he presented — a five-year-old letter from Michael Cohen’s attorney affirming that Cohen made the payment to Stormy Daniels alone and that Trump had no role in reimbursing him — had a significant impact on Bragg’s case against Trump. This impact was so substantial that the Manhattan grand jury did not assemble on Wednesday, and while they did meet on Thursday, they did not hear the case involving Trump, postponing the alleged indictment to at least next week. However, it remains doubtful that the indictment will occur at all . . .

. . . Legal experts from both sides of the political aisle have highlighted the frailty of Bragg’s case. Bragg was most certainly aware of this fact, too. Perhaps he didn’t care because he was too eager to become a hero to the radical left and advance his career. Or maybe his Trump Derangement Syndrome blinded him to the fact that he had a weak case. Ironically, the only person who stands to benefit from this situation is Trump.

The anticipation of an imminent indictment in New York has led to a surge in donations for Trump. According to reports, his campaign raked in $1.5 million in the three days after Trump announced on Truth Social that he expected to be arrested on Tuesday.

Anything can happen, of course, but I’m confident that Bragg’s case blew up in his face and the case that the left thought would be Trump’s downfall only made him stronger.

For the benefit of those who have similar recent Ivy League degrees like Bragg or who get their news from CNN, Donald Trump did not commit any crime he entered into a legal, non-disclosure agreement with the skank-in-question years ago. But of course, what does the law mean to those who only use their positions of authority within the system to persecute political enemies? If everything that we have been through since 2020 and really going back to the Obama reign of error (and let's face it; this is his third term), doesn't convince you that America as it was or as we had thought it was has ceased to be, then the use of the law as a political weapon of repression is proof positive.

Psaki-psircling to Bragg, a toxic mix of Marxism, Trump derangement and plain rank incompetence despite the Harvard Law degree (affirmative action by any other name would be DEI/D-I-E) courses through his sclerotic veins; the central theme of his campaign for Manhattan DA was indicting and convicting Donald Trump. Kind of funny considering his attitude about real crime and criminals, as Daniel Greenfield shows us:

When Bragg took office, he released a Day One memo which told prosecutors not to pursue prison sentences for many crimes including armed robberies and not to ask for life sentences.

As a result of his pro-crime guidelines, more than half of felony cases were downgraded to misdemeanors. Felony convictions fell from 68% to 51%, misdemeanor convictions from 53% to 29% and very few of those ever saw prison. Bragg’s pro-crime prosecutorial pipeline turned felonies into misdemeanors and then the offenders never served a day in prison.

Murders rose 10%, aggravated assaults were up 11% and robberies shot up 25%

Bragg justified his pro-crime policies by arguing that he was trying to use resources more efficiently. He claimed that his Day One memo refusing to prosecute many crimes was about freeing up “prosecutorial resources”. When Bragg’s office dropped most of the charges against a serial shoplifter, they claimed it would have been a “waste of resources” to go forward.

What was Bragg really focusing on?

In 2022, even as violent crimes shot up and the Manhattan DA’s office claimed that it wasn’t prosecuting criminals because it was shorthanded, it hired Matthew Colangelo, a former Biden DOJ appointee and Sotomayor clerk who had headed over to the New York State Attorney General’s office to go after Trump. Colangelo’s current salary isn’t listed, but he was earning $203,000 at the federal level and isn’t likely to have taken a pay cut to work for Bragg.

“Matthew Colangelo brings a wealth of economic justice experience combined with complex white-collar investigations, and he has the sound judgment and integrity needed to pursue justice against powerful people,” Bragg bragged. It was no secret whom Bragg had in mind . . .

. . . While Bragg hired a legal hit man to go after Trump, crime victims were mourning as their attackers were cut loose because the Manhattan DA’s office claimed not to have the resources . . . Bragg didn’t have enough resources to help crime victims, but plenty to go after Trump. . . Soros DAs consider criminals to be victims and those who defend themselves to be criminals. . .

. . . An extra 50 people were killed in Manhattan on Bragg’s watch. How many of those people really had to die?

An extra 159 women were raped.

An extra 3,524 people were robbed.

An extra 4,197 people were assaulted.

How much of that could have been prevented if Bragg had focused his “prosecutorial resources” on pursuing criminals, instead of giving perps a pass, while focusing on political crimes?

Bragg’s war against former President Trump is fully consistent with his attitude. DA Alvin Bragg is out to redeem a year of criminal terror with a Trump arrest. And if New Yorkers had to die, be beaten, robbed and raped to make it happen, that’s a small price to pay.

As an aside, the prediction (and believe me, you didn't have to be the mashup of Kreskin and Nostradamus to see this coming) of who might replace the ousted Lori Lightfoot in Chicago would be laughable, were it not so horribly tragic.

When Donald Trump stated "They're not after me, they're after you. I'm just standing in the way" he was dead on. Besides the pseudo-organized/loose black-clad Brownshirts of Antifa and BLM, the unleashing of hardened criminals on the public is every bit a weapon of state-sponsored political anarcho-terrorism as the aforementioned groups along with the weaponized arms of the bureaucracy in the DOJ/FBI, the ATF, the intelligence agencies, the IRS and quite probably all the other agencies, even if they have nothing to do with law enforcement or national security.

While Matt Margolis up top is kind of giddy and having a schaden-boner about the non-case against Trump falling apart, friend and prolific author extraordinaire Robert Spencer is not so sanguine:

[CNN host Van] Jones said sensibly on Monday, “If anybody is a Republican and they had been afraid there is some well-organized conspiracy among progressives, they can relax now, because you would not start with this charge.” Indeed, because as even the New York Times conceded on March 9, Bragg’s case is long on partisan hatred and notably bereft of substance. “Hush money is not inherently illegal,” the Times admitted, and then suggest a way that the case could be made stronger: “the prosecutors could argue that the $130,000 payout effectively became an improper donation to Mr. Trump’s campaign, under the theory that because the money silenced Ms. Daniels, it benefited his candidacy.” Well, all right, but that’s a stretch. Big corporations, as well as wealthy individuals, make nuisance payouts regularly, and no one is perp-walked for them. . .

. . . Leftists jumped to rake Jones over the coals for daring to dissent. American Leftists have never been more censorious and intolerant of opposing views, and so Jones didn’t exactly pick a good time to show himself to be an independent thinker. Attorney and Fortune 500 speaker Exavier Pope tweeted: “Van Jones is not a serious person and should not be taken seriously. A sentient corn on the cob.” . . .

. . . Former Bernie Sanders surrogate Jonathan Tasini went for the sharp edge: “Evergreen reminder: Van Jones only cares about Van Jones.”

Maybe he does. But it’s noteworthy how contemporary Leftists treat disagreement. The rage at Jones only underscores how unlikely it is that Bragg will back away from the ledge. He doesn’t want to face the wrath of his fellow Leftists.

Bingo. And again, Bragg ran on the platform of nailing Trump. While there are indications that the grand jury, hopefully to its credit, is recognizing the complete bullshit nature of the charges, the idea of Trump getting a fair trial in NYC, or DC or any other area of Leftist dominant influence is my proverbial pipe dream, wrapped in an LSD trip inside a drunken stupor. Meh, somehow Kyle Rittenhouse got away with the heinous crime of self-defense while preventing a mostly peaceful riot, so anything is possible but I would not hold my breath. If they're railing against Van Jones for a flash of rationality and reasonableness (despite his other bullshit that Spencer notes in his essay), what do you think their reaction will be if, or please God, when Bragg drops the case?

These are the same people that have fantasized for seven years of literally killing Donald Trump. And that ladies and gents is my big fear. Look what these bastards running our country (mostly into the ground) have been willing to do to maintain and increase their hold on power. And in just the past two to three years alone.

Donald Trump has been equated as "literally Hitler," not just by whippet-huffing Cheeto-munching Molotov cocktail-brewing wastes of life in mom's basement somewhere in Portland but by the highest levels of this government. Look back to last Labor Day and Joey Schickel-sniffer's Leni Riefenstahl speech at Independence Hall that basically called for the extermination of Trump, Trumpism and everyone who supports him and really his beliefs and policies.

Trump is going to get it. One way or another. And, worthy of repeating, "They're not after me, they're after you. I'm just in the way."

Have a great weekend, and see you tomorrow for the hobby thread. Be there. Aloha.
