The Morning Report — 7/13/23

faybray.jpg

Good morning, kids. So the Capitol Hill dog and pony show of "grilling" FBI Reichsminister Christopher Wray surprised and shocked no one. Americans saw an arrogant liar whose mien and demeanor were narcissistic and condescending. Anti-Americans saw a patriot being unjustly persecuted by representatives of the knuckle-dragging troglodyte set. The low information set were too busy drooling over whichever Kardashian's buttocks was overstuffed into a g-string on Page 6 of the NY Post to care.

In any case, what real repercussions will Christopher Wray, Merrick Garland, the Bidens, the Clintons and everyone in or allied with this Junta actually face? If you said nothing, you win a cookie. Nearly three and more years after the fact, the revelations that the Chinese COVID lockdowns and the vaccines were at best useless and at worst deadly, that the Russian collusion smear and hoax was just that to the J6 "insurrection" proving more and more to be actually mostly peaceful (as opposed to the media definition of that term) with the violence instigated by none other than Wray's own confederates, everything they said was a conspiracy theory has turned out to be confirmed. But, as I stated in the opening paragraph, the individual thirds of this nation have reacted accordingly. In the immortal words of a certain muumuu-wearing harridan "At this point, what difference does it make?!"

By the way, buried in the communiqué about Ray Epps suing Tucker Carlson and Fox News for defamation, which is the moral equivalent of letting Admiral Levine conduct a circumcision, it turns out that the DOJ is about to, at long last, indict him for his actions on January 6th. As you process that, let me be the first to predict that Ray Epps did not kill himself. Yet.

I've said it, as have many others over the past three years as the Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants Junta its allies and apologists continue to engage in both high crimes and misdemeanors, abuse us, and rub our noses in it when those charged with holding them to account run interference for them and/or act as co-conspirators in their crimes, we're now "fundamentally transformed" into a banana republic. We say it so often now that it becomes just so much white noise. But if the use of the instrumentalities of our law enforcement and criminal justice systems as arms of a tyranny to control the citizenry doesn't convince you, perhaps these two related items will. Or should:

A series of bills filed by Democrat legislators in the Massachusetts House and Senate would open municipal voting rights to foreign nationals living in the state on green cards.

In practice, the policy would mean foreign nationals could cast deciding votes in Massachusetts towns and cities for mayor, school committee, city council, town council, board of selectmen, select board elections, school committee referendums, local ballot referendums, or other municipal races. . .

. . . “Immigrants are essential to our communities … many are on the path to citizenship but lack the ability to apply, but they need to have a say in how public services are funded and governed,” an official with the group MassVOTE told legislators during a hearing on the bills last month.

Elsewhere in New England, particularly Connecticut and Rhode Island, Democrat legislators have tried desperately to get legislation across the finish line this year that would not only give legal immigrants the right to vote but also illegal aliens.

"Immigrants?" "Many . . . on a path to citizenship?" Maybe. But let's ditch the legal niceties since we all know that the system is totally gamed to let in as many as possible and as quickly as possible without any constraints whatsoever. They're still foreigners, with little incentive if not their own will to assimilate. But they are on a path. And in many cases on planes, trains and ships with passage bought and paid for by those who control our Treasury. I refuse to dignify these individuals with the respect to acknowledge them as "our government since, they obviously do not represent us, even if they had not rigged the last election, which they did. By the way, according to this logic, there are nearly 7 billion people on this planet who theoretically are on a path to US citizenship.

Forget for a second the perhaps likely probability of this passing that we no longer have a country. The fact that it is even up for consideration is proof positive of that fact. As is this little item:

Immigrants without U.S. citizenship will soon be able to get badges and guns, and authorized to arrest Americans in the nation’s capital, as the city’s Police Department (DC MPD) struggles to recruit and retain police officers. New hires, including non-citizen green card holders, will even be offered up to $25,000 in signing bonuses. “As an agency, we truly believe that a workforce that represents our community brings a variety of ideas, experiences, and perspectives. Together, this blend drives innovation and growth,” said Ashan Benedict, Interim Chief of Police, whose own parents are Sri Lankan immigrants. . .

. . . While Benedict’s statement makes the move to recruit foreigners with green cards sound like a tech industry diversity and innovation initiative, it is more likely a response to the fact that the D.C. force’s manpower has collapsed to just 3,400 officers.

I don't give a damn about your recruitment problems. Non citizens, here legally or not, have not been assimilated into this country long enough to be given the responsibility to enforce our laws. Before even going that far, why do we even have a police recruitment problem – and a parallel disaster of a problem with military recruitment – in the first place? Could it be the decriminalizing of crime as well as the dismantling of any kind of adherence to both meritocracy as well as the inculcation of the norms of traditional American societal customs and values?

Meh, what the hell am I talking about. We have people born and raised here who consider themselves the elite of our society that have risen to become part of a never-intended ruling class who are absolutely above the law, and use/abuse whatever the laws are on the books to maintain that position of absolute power.

Psaki-psircle back to Christopher Wray, the Bidens, Clintons, Democrats, corporatists and all the rest of it.
