The Morning Report — 9/14/23

mittheadupass.jpg

Good morning, kids. Let it not be said that I never highlight any good news.

Trump celebrated news of Romney’s decision not to run for reelection, posting on Truth Social:
FANTASTIC NEWS FOR AMERICA,THE GREAT STATE OF UTAH, & FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. MITT ROMNEY, SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS PIERRE DELECTO, WILL NOT BE SEEKING A SECOND TERM IN THE U.S. SENATE, WHERE HE DID NOT SERVE WITH DISTINCTION. A BIG PRIMARY FIGHT AGAINST HIM WAS IN THE OFFING, BUT NOW THAT WILL NOT BE NECESSARY. CONGRATS TO ALL. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

. . . Romney was interrupted five minutes into his interview with Politico by a call from [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Joe Biden.

“There are certain calls you do have to take,” Romney said after “speaking with the president for what sounded like a friendly and upbeat conversation,” according to the outlet.

"Friendly and upbeat?" We'll see how long that lasts considering it's not just the name Biden that has been positively linked to the greatest corruption scandal in American history. One of Romney's sons IIRC is also tied at the hip, along with a Kerry and perhaps a Pelosi, to Burisma or the Hunter Biden-directed "investment" firm associated with international influence peddling. It would be just as sweet to see any or all of them take some sort of hit, politically and financially if not criminally. Especially a globalist fake conservative like Romney.

Naturally, given the top to bottom corruption of in and out of government, the odds of any of that happening are slim to none. Yet, the rapidly degenerating brain function of degenerate-in-chief Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants is threatening to expose more and more of, not only his and his party's criminality, but the disaster wrought by their policies and raging incompetence, as our economy, international stature, security and society collapse as a result.

For them to lose a spot at the trough would be bad enough. But collectively, for them to lose political power to a slowly rising tide of populist anger would be unthinkable. There's quite a good piece at The American Conservative (it's behind a paywall) on our disastrous meddling in the Russia-Ukraine conflict vis a vis the aforementioned deleterious effects on the nation, but given our current political divide and unrest, this paragraph jumped out at me for obvious reasons:

Confronted with a weak economy, higher yields and lower prices for Treasury bonds, the Biden [junta] and its partner on Capitol Hill, the Washington “uniparty,” really have two choices: First, cut U.S. and Allied losses in Ukraine, reduce discretionary spending, and focus on domestic emergencies at the Southern Border and in America’s largest cities. Or second, the [junta] and the uniparty can escalate the conflict with Moscow. 

Well, they're not "confronted" with those problems since they are the ones that caused them in the first place. At this point, the phrase "wag the dog" comes to mind. But this time, we're not dealing with a third world pushover thug-ocracy. We're dealing with a former super power now a regional power with a nuclear arsenal ranging from suitcase-sized to multiple thermonuclear warhead-equipped ICBMs that can muss even the perfectly Brylcreem-coiffed pate of Gavin Newsom.

I just realized, Saddam Hussein the second time around was not exactly a cakewalk and let's not even talk about Afghanistan. Of course, that too was no fault of the US combat soldier but of a foreign policy and national leadership that goes to war for war's sake and not to quickly and decisively crush our enemies and impose our will on them. That, of course, is racist, imperialist and these days "Islamophobic." But I digress.

We are at an inflection point in history and the New World Order, not of Hitler but of Bush 41, is on the cusp of erasing nearly a thousand years of human development and advancement since Magna Carta and imposing the same old tyranny on the world, that will kill millions in the name of saving humanity. All bets are well and truly off, my friends as was demonstrated in New Mexico just the other day:

. . . although this scenario looks rather like déjà vu all over again, it actually is a bit intriguing.

Why intriguing? Because surely the governor had her finger to the wind and knew exactly what the response was going to be, but she went forward anyway.

Why? Because it’s a probe, providing the strategists who serve our reptilian overlords with some data points. As with the case of COVID, the lizards who orchestrated the pandemic knew it would eventually be discovered that the US federal government funded the creation of it in the Wuhan lab, and we’d eventually learn that the masks, the social distancing, and the lockdowns were all pointless and that the “vaccines” were both ineffective and dangerous.

So why pursue that entire elaborate rococo deception? Because the deep-state lizards wanted to study the public response. And why that? Because our deep-state reptilian overlords are in the process of formulating a plan to fit us all with a totalitarian straightjacket.

Bear in mind that, in 1944. the United States Supreme Court in Korematsu v. United States approved the 1942 Japanese internment, because of “military necessity.” Perhaps that made sense under the circumstances if one believes the hysteria portrayed in the 1979 John Belushi movie 1941, but note that Korematsu fires the lizard quest for an “emergency” sufficient to sweep aside the US Constitution and all its citizen protections in one fell swoop.

It is surely alarming enough that the 17 federal intelligence agencies have developed the technology to surveil us through our underwear, but just why is it that 70 federal agencies are armed with significant firepower?

Let us ponder: What could piggyback on Korematsu? How about martial law?! Martial law has indeed already been imposed some 68 times in US history.

The only thing more vile and repulsive than Lujan-Grisham's l'état, c'est moi declaration that her oath to the Constitution is worth less than Joey's used Depends is the fact that a growing number of citizens have an equal disregard for that sacred document, mostly due to mal- or non-education on its meaning in the first place. As Lenin himself said, "Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted." Well, he and his ilk have had nearly 60, if not longer. And here we are.

Meanwhile, with every amendment under assault – except for the 14th being used to persecute Donald Trump, itself wholly bastardized to being with – it's the First that is really under the gun (no pun):

What a desperately presumptuous act it is for the White House Counsel’s Office to blast out a memo ordering media organizations to apply the blowtorch to Republicans and defend Joe Biden in the impending House impeachment inquiry. 

The marching orders went out Wednesday morning under a blaring headline: “MEMO TO EDITORIAL LEADERSHIP AT U.S. NEWS MEDIA ORGANIZATIONS.” 

Ian Sams, the grandly titled special assistant to the president and senior adviser and spokesman for White House Counsel’s Office, declared: “It’s Time For The ­Media To Do More To Scrutinize House Republicans’ Demonstrably False Claims That They’re Basing Impeachment Stunt On.” 

Talk about ungrateful. 

The White House is making overt what has been covert, and humiliating their media handmaidens in the process. 

That section of the media that ought to have been scrutinizing the [so-called quote-unquote "president"] rather than covering him must be scratching their heads, and red-faced with embarrassment.

They don’t need a public rallying cry.

They already know what to do. 

They have been carrying water for Joe Biden since he first shuffled out of the basement.

The White House memo insists there’s “simply no evidence that Joe Biden did anything wrong” and ­offers as evidence that there’s no evidence quotes from a herd of deaf, dumb and blind RINOs, like Ken Buck, (R-Colo.): “The evidence doesn’t exist right now;” and Don Bacon (R-Neb.): “We need to have more concrete evidence.” 

The memo was accompanied by a 16-page so-called “dossier” in which the FBI, Washington Post, New York Times, NBC, CNN and Associated Press are quoted liberally back to themselves exonerating Joe Biden in the counterfactual post-truth parsing of language that passes for journalism these days at those formerly ­august outfits. 

As House committees and whistleblowers have piled evidence upon evidence of wrongdoing, corruption and coverup that links back to Joe Biden, these bastions of American journalism have behaved like a combination of Mr. Magoo, Baghdad Bob, Sgt. Schultz and Monty Python’s Black Knight — and maybe with a dose of the Three Wise Monkeys thrown in: “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” 

The White House wants them to stay that way, so that half the electorate remains in the dark. 

Forget the bank records, shell companies, SEC complaints, sworn testimony, IRS whistleblower statements, FBI informant files, emails, texts, WhatsApp messages, photos, speakerphone calls, voicemails, White House visitor logs, Air Force 2 travel logs, Joe’s pseudonym email addresses and a parade of Hunter’s shady foreign benefactors lining up for handshakes with Joe in Beijing, breakfasts at the VP’s residence and dinners at Café Milano, not to mention millions of dollars in filthy foreign lucre for no discernible product or service other than access to Joe. 

Emphasis mine in Miranda Devine's essay. I would say what can you expect from a government that would attempt to (and for all we know secretly be operating) institute a Disinformation Governance Board, or whatever the hell it was called? Who needs one when you have a media that instinctively lies about what's going on and silences and/or smears all voices the question the narrative or dare to raise doubts or contrary opinions?

That's the real danger here. Bad enough we have a government trying to enslave us. We also have a so-called private sector that will do the dirty work for them when even the barest of protections and safeguards still extant stand in its way. Worse still, alluding to my earlier depression over a whole new generation(s) of citizens who have no knowledge of, or even hatred, of the Constitution, citizen Stasi ready to rat you out for wrong-think:

Authorities in Los Angeles County are operating an ideologically charged tip line that encourages citizens to report one another to the government for non-criminal “hate incidents.” The project, called “LA vs Hate,” was founded in 2020 and is backed by a handful of corporate sponsors.

LA vs Hate describes itself as a “community-centered creative campaign to encourage and support all residents of Los Angeles County to unite against, report, and resist hate.” The program relies on anonymous reporting online or through a tip line, 211 LA, and is not affiliated with law enforcement.

The organization operates under the authority of the County of Los Angeles Commission on Human Relations and enjoys backing from Kaiser Permanente, Blue Shield of California, and other nonprofits and corporate organizations. It also receives financial support from the American Rescue Plan and local governmental departments. . .

. . . LA vs Hate encourages people to report “hate crimes” and “hate violence,” both of which are defined to include illegal offenses on the group’s website. Critically, however, Angelenos are also told to report “hate incidents,” defined on the site as “an action or behavior motivated by hate but which, for one or more reasons, is not a crime.” Listed examples of “hate incidents” include name-calling, insults, displaying so-called hate material on your own property, posting alleged hate material that does not result in property damage, and distributing materials with hate messages in public spaces.

LA vs Hate did not provide a public definition of “hate” or respond to The Federalist with a definition when asked. Taxpayers, Christians, and Angelenos outside the far left should be troubled by this ambiguity, given recent efforts to use overly broad definitions of hate to smear and punish political opponents. . .

. . . The tip line is not affiliated with law enforcement, so it poses the question: Why bother reporting so-called “hate”? The LA vs Hate website claims reporting is used so “communities can respond with appropriate resources and support” in response to actions “motivated by hostile prejudice.” The ambiguity is intentional but transparent. These tip lines are unenforceable snitch lines that police opinions and dissent with the most effective method: shame. . .

. . . George Orwell describes this state of inescapable orthodoxy best: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — for ever.”

Yup. Prepare to get your hair mussed. And your face stomped.
