The Morning Report — 4/6/23


Good morning, kids. A couple of things on my mind this morning. First, there's no getting around the fact that the turning of the Wisconsin state supreme court into a 4-3 leftist majority is going to have repercussions there (here, in my case) and perhaps nationally. While it is a very safe assumption that some if not quite a bit of election thievery took place, the dismal turnout of conservative/GOP voters is a head-scratcher. To me anyway. This Janet Prostitutkawitch ran solely on the platform of Dan Kelly will keep women barefoot and pregnant even in cases of rape and incest. Kind of funny since this fat bint has a record of letting rapists and other violent thugs off the hook with barely a wrist slap, so I guess it balances out in the grand scheme of things, right ladies of the cheese belt? Sheesh.

Something doesn't add up with me on this score. If America (such as it exists) still is a majority conservative country, or at a minimum center-right if you still use that kind of dodgy paradigm, and if poll after poll over the years shows a clear two-thirds majority of respondents across party/ideological lines wanting at least some restrictions on state-sanctioned infanticide, how is it that that attitude is not reflected at the polls? That is, how does this issue or how it is even propagandized registering with people, especially in light of the fact that so many other issues, especially Democrat-caused crime and economic disaster, are hitting people where they live, literally and figuratively? I don't get it.

What I do get is, after losing 55-45, in a race that could have and should have been if not won, then a razor-thin margin, the fish stinks from the head:

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel described the loss of conservative candidate Daniel Kelly in Tuesday’s Wisconsin Supreme Court election as “a messaging issue.”

“I will say something else. When you’re losing by 10 points there is a messaging issue. And abortion is still an issue. And we can’t allow the Democrats to define Republicans and put millions of dollars up in lies and have it go unanswered, because the lies become the truth if they go unanswered,” McDaniel said Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s  “America’s Newsroom.”

Janet Protasiewicz defeated Daniel Kelly in Tuesday’s election, securing 55.8% of the vote after liberal groups, philanthropist George Soros and Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker of Illinois sank millions of dollars into the campaign. Republicans provided far less funding for Kelly, according to campaign finance reports.

“We have to put the Democrats on the defense on this issue, talk about the fact that they support gender selection abortions, and due date abortions,” McDaniel continued. “It was an issue in 2022. The RNC raised the flag. I’m a suburban woman. I know this is an issue. I hear it with my friends with my young daughter.”

No, you're a Romney. And a globalist stooge. But that aside, we knew that this race was happening the moment that IIRC Justice Patience Roggensack's seat was going to be vacant. From that moment, why was every damned resource not mobilized to get out the vote and get out the messaging? Would Harmeet Dhillon have made a difference? We'll never know, now will we? And as far as this suburban mom messaging garbage, basta cosi! I am sick to fucking death of these women bitching and moaning about everything collapsing in on them, while alternately complaining "but Trump said 'pussy'!" and "muh-bortions!"

Make up your fucking hormonal minds about what matters, wake the hell up to recognize that decapitating a human being in the womb is murder, and get over yourselves. As for the GOP, I hope to hell this loss is not a harbinger of shit for 2024 nationally and even for me personally (bad enough I have to live within smelling distance of Madison, Milwaukee and Chicago. But I left New York and don't want to see it follow me). And, the current nightmare notwithstanding, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the salient fact that Donald Trump endorsed Ronna Romney McDaniel.

And that of course leads me into the current issue of the death of the republic. Meh, we're now firmly in the dismemberment phase, but is it me or am I like the only one seeing that? Before delving into part B of my rant for the day, this came over the transom just a short while ago:

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio took the stand and testified in the federal trial of Prakazrel “Pras” Michel, founder of the hip hop band Fugees, and his alleged involvement in a money laundering scheme that included a huge — and illegal — donation to Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.

DiCaprio recalled a conversation with Malaysian financier Jho Low, who mentioned that he was looking to donate millions of dollars to the Obama campaign by giving the money to Michel and having him pass it to Obama’s people. . .
. . . “It was a significant sum, something to the tune of $20-30 million,” DiCaprio testified in court. “I said, ‘Wow that’s a lot of money!’”

Additional witnesses testified that they were wired money from Low and asked to forward it to the Obama campaign.

It should be noted that Low attempted to also bribe the Trump campaign but there is zero evidence that any money wound up there at all. Not that that would make any bit of difference to someone like Alvin Bragg, but I digress. Kind of.

Yeah, $20-$30 million is a lot of money, Leo. But it's peanuts compared to what likely came into the Obama coffers internationally – each single dollar would be a count in a federal case – in the form of massively laundered credit card donations (that we in fact know about) that are easily 10 times that figure, if not more. Funny how Barack Obama is free to travel the world with his bearded Wookie running down America for fun and profit, but mostly profit, on the lecture circuit. And yet sic transit Donald J. Trump.

As you peruse the links, you no doubt will see a bevy of intelligent and thoughtful pundits and commentators remarking that this case has zero merits, and should be thrown out immediately, let alone ever have been brought in the first place. Of course this is true, but it messes the point. It presupposes that there are jurists who will of course subsume their political persuasion/affiliation and elevate their fealty to the rule of law to do so. If that were the case, even a rabid dog like Alvin Bragg never would have entertained the idea of doing what he did. Meh, he never would have risen much above the level of ambulance chaser. And yet, look at the curricula and who is teaching it at our nation's most elite law schools. QED.

Even Alan Dershowitz gets it. Sort of:

Dershowitz went on to suggest that Trump’s case will likely not be dismissed, saying that “I don’t think that if you had the best lawyers in the history of the world, Abraham Lincoln and John Marshall, a New York City judge would dismiss this case because that New York City judge’s life would be over.” 

The lawyer said that the judge would be mocked if he or she were to dismiss Trump. Dershowitz continued by saying that he does think Trump will be convicted by “your jury who voted for Bragg.” However, he added that the case would “be reversed on appeal,” and it “will never be affirmed all the way up to the Supreme Court.”

By the time it gets to SCOTUS or wherever, the damage will have been done. And assuming it would be overturned is also something that I wouldn't necessarily bank on, Mr. Dershowitz.

It’s clear that, for the Trump trial, Merchan’s deep involvement with the Leftist elites is not a bug but a feature. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s case couldn’t possibly be thinner.  As Andy McCarthy, a former assistant U.S. attorney, stated, “this indictment, even before you get to the statute of limitations and whether he’s got jurisdiction to enforce federal law, I would dismiss it on its face because it fails to state a crime… This is the heart of the case. It’s not a felony unless he was trying to conceal another crime and if you don’t tell them what the crime is, how does that put him on notice and allow him to prepare his defense?”

The perfect judge for such a Kafkaesque case would be one who is so ferociously partisan that the weakness of the case hardly matters, because the outcome has been predetermined.

Is Judge Merchan that judge? He may end up being as impartial as the day is long, but if Bragg and his henchmen wanted to make sure that the judge in this case was as sympathetic to the prosecution as possible, Merchan’s donation history and daughter’s activities certainly made him an appealing candidate for the job. . .

. . . Here yet again, we are in uncharted territory. Many have observed that the indictment and arrest of Trump take us into banana republic territory, and it is precisely for that reason that supporters of Trump, and those who aren’t so fond of Trump but realize how dangerous this whole affair is, should not be so sure that the whole case will eventually founder. Stalin didn’t put his enemies on trial just to see them acquitted. Old Joe Biden’s handlers and their allies aren’t likely to do so, either.

Robert Spencer gets it. There's a terrific essay, yet again, from Victor Davis Hanson where he just lays out exactly what's going on. And then he gets to the last sentence. Four words that, after reading his entire discourse, you just shake your head.

Since 2020 and even before, in things great and small, pundits and others keep saying, "If they are allowed to get away with it, the damage may be irreparable." First, for far too long our leaders and those who have brought us to this point, and by all indications will not stop, have done irreparable damage to our nation and society in things great and small.

Second, and most crucially, the republic is already dead. This notion of damage being irreparable is idiotic. What's happening now is the political equivalent of gang-rape necrophilia on Mrs. Bates.

I wish these people would wake up and smell the covfefe.
