The Morning Report — 11/21/23

pineapplejews.jpg

Good morning, kids. Whoever had "Rommel asparagus" on their bingo card, you just won a brand new 1978 Chrysler Cordoba and you can pick up the keys at Morty's office!

State police reportedly found a grenade Sunday morning on a utility pole across the street from an ultra Orthodox synagogue in Lakewood, New Jersey.

Police shut down the area and called a bomb squad after determining the grenade looked real, The Lakewood Scoop reported. “The threats against Jewish communities are insane,” Aviva Klompas, co-founder of Boundless, said on X. She also posted a photo of the grenade. Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer later told the outlet the grenade was genuine but “inert and nonexplosive.”

"Inert and nonexplosive." That's what they keep insisting Islam and Leftism are. And yet. Frankly, I'm kind of surprised it wasn't a live pineapple or a Molotov cocktail. How kind of them just to give us a warning, right? In actuality, I'm rather surprised that what's been happening over here and all over the soon to be uncivilized world has been mostly peaceful, or in the words of Fat Albert Speer Whoopi "mostly peaceful mostly peaceful." The murder of senior citizen Paul Kessler by a "Religion of Peace" peacenik notwithstanding. But that cannot last, can it?

As Israel continues to plough Hamas under, and the resident cancer that is Gaza, the Fifth Column over here becomes that much more enraged and incensed. It's not by accident either, as the term Fifth Column is not mere hyperbole. Calling for a cease fire means Hamas is on the ropes, and those leading the call for the cease fire are tied to Hamas at the hip. The Geek chorus of brainwashed youths and self-gassing JINOs are merely their stooges.

Speaking of which, it still is shocking how so many people can eagerly support the roasting alive of babies in front of their parents in the name of "liberation." It's shocking, but really not surprising in the least.

. . . once the Oslo Accords came into being, big money flowed into the region. He was one of the people the Ford Foundation hired to start handing out money “to help build a vibrant liberal civil society.”

. . . When Wexler and his Israeli colleague, Debra London, finally did meet with [Arab "civil rights" org ITJAA head Ameer] Makhoul, they discovered that he had detailed information about every meeting Wexler had previously had with the Arab organizations. Additionally, Makhoul had an equally detailed dossier about all facets of Wexler’s life, a clear intimidation tactic. Then, having put Wexler in his place, Makhoul explained the plan the Palestinians would put into effect under cover of the Oslo Accords and with the money soon to be flowing in:

“And now, Gary Wexler,” he sat down, “let me give you more direct answers.” He looked me straight in the eye. “Just like you were a Zionist campus activist, we will create, over the next years, Palestinian campus activists in America and all over the world. Bigger and better than any Zionist activists. Just like you spent your summers on the kibbutz, we will bring college students to spend their summers in refugee camps and work with our people. Just like you have been part of creating global pro-Israel organizations, we will create global pro-Palestinian organizations. Just like you today help create PR campaigns and events for Israel, so will we, but we will get more coverage than you ever have.”  

He stood again this time, right over me. “You wonder how we will make this happen, how we will pay for this? Not with the money from your liberal Jewish organizations who are now funding us. But from the European Union, Arab and Moslem governments, wealthy Arab people and their organizations. Eventually, we will not take another dollar from the Jews.”

The meeting ended, Makhoul called the Ford Foundation to accuse Wexler of threatening him, and Makhoul was eventually arrested as a Syrian spy. But none of that’s important.

What’s important is that Makhoul and those allied with him did exactly as promised: They flooded the world—the media and academia—with anti-Israel propaganda, starting with the Muhammed al-Dura hoax. Writes Wexler:

As the years went on, I began to see what Ameer Makhoul had laid out to me taking shape. The PR coverage was first: The Muhammad al-Durrah incident in Gaza, when a 12-year-old boy was shot to death on the second day of the Second Intifada, capturing global headlines. The Mavi Marmara, the Turkish Flotilla to Gaza that the Israelis stormed, killing several Palestinian activists, grabbing global headlines. I knew the Mavi Marmara was manufactured for the exposure it would gain.

Then the campuses: The creation of Apartheid Week worldwide. The growth of BDS. The student volunteers who began by the thousands to work in the Palestinian territories and its refugee camps. The shocking creation of anti-Zionist Jewish student groups.

What we’re seeing today is not an accident. It’s part of a deliberate, well-funded plan to say that terrorists who bake babies ovens, rape women to death, and torture young children before murdering them have the moral high ground when held up against a liberal democracy that, when fighting a hot war, tries to evacuate the enemy’s civilians. And the plan is succeeding, probably far beyond Makhoul’s wildest dreams.

Not to denigrate Andrea Widburg's fine article, but it merely scratches the surface. None of the madness we are witnessing on campuses and sadly moving into the streets of America like a wildfire would have happened had American academia not been completely hijacked by anti-AMERICAN radicals. The calls for the annihilation of Jews and Israel is merely the latest manifestation of the calls for the annihilation of Americans and America as founded.

It explains the seeming schizophrenic reaction by your average liberal. Sure, they are surprised and appalled by this explosion of Jew-hatred, yet they refuse to recognize the root cause of it; the political party and political movement that they support and likely will continue to support going forward. It also explains the machinations of the Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants puppeteers in Kalorama, which is nothing more than a taqqiya sunrise. The rabid Jew-haters they've played up to and unleashed though are too stupid to realize it.

The White House strongly denounced young Democrat protesters referring to President Joe Biden as “Genocide Joe” for his staunch support of Israel in its fight against Hamas.

Speaking with New York Post reporter Steve Nelson, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby called the nickname “Genocide Joe” inappropriate while standing on the side of free speech.

“We’re not worried about nicknames and bumper stickers. I mean, it’s First Amendment free speech. The president’s focused on … making sure that we can continue to support Israel as they fight a terrible terrorist group, Hamas,” Kirby said. Kirby said that the term “genocide” has been misapplied, given that Hamas wants the extermination of Jews.

All true but make no mistake; these scumbags are not interested in protecting Jews. They're interested in protecting the massive political donations from the self-gassing JINOs, so they have to play this game of support for Israel. If they really did support the latter, the last thing they'd be doing is shoving billions of dollars at the PLO and Hamas' overlords in Iran so they can continue to fund the real genocide and build an A-bomb. Meh, tell that to the BLM crowd.

And speaking of taqqiya sunrises, a couple of weeks ago I was kind of pleasantly surprised by an Islamic group that had denounced and renounced what Hamas had done in Israel.

Alas . . .

Anila Ali is a Muslim American woman educator and activist of Pakistani origins. During her brief, impassioned speech at the November 14, 2023 pro-Israel rally in Washington, D.C., Ms. Ali pronounced the following words, redolent with ecumenism, and basic decency:

“I stand before you as a Muslim American Pakistani friend of the Jewish people…I declare the war to destroy the Jews and the Jewish homeland must end once and for all.”

Then she continued,

“The holy Quran repeatedly expresses reverence for the Torah and praises the Jewish people. There is a chapter in the Quran, it’s called Bani Israel (sura 17 “Al Isra”) [and it] insists that the Children of Israel will be gathered from exile back into their homeland.”

Ali further claimed,

“And let me tell you Islamic Law explicitly forbids attacking civilians…all of this violates the core of our religion.”

A month earlier, at an October White House “interfaith vigil,” and as part of her “Not in My Name” campaign, Anila Ali cited only the initial portion of Qur’an 5:32 “whosoever killed a person… it shall be as if he had killed mankind,” as an alleged example of the Qur’an’s “repeated expressions of admiration for Jews and Jewish scripture.” The campaign also maintains a tradition of Islam’s prophet Muhammad in the Hamas Covenant which calls for the annihilation of the Jews in Muslim eschatology (end of times theology), was a “heinous false claim.”

Anila Ali’s noble sentiments are tainted, sadly, by her false characterizations of authoritative, foundational Islamic theology. These willful misrepresentations are readily explicated with direct citations from the Qur’an and traditions, as well as two authoritative Qur’anic commentaries, one classical and one contemporary, the latter a modern work written by a renowned Qur’anic commentator from Ms. Ali’s native Pakistan. Moreover, classical and modern Islamic law, and its articulation by Islam’s luminaries, debunk Ali’s contention that jihad depredations against civilians are “forbidden.”

. . . Ali’s insistence that the Jew-annihilationist tradition, or “hadith” cited in the Hamas Covenant is somehow a “heinous false claim,” is entirely mendacious. This hadith is referenced in at least 3 of the six collections of traditions Muslims hold canonical, including the two most prominent “Sahih” (sound) collections (here; here; here). Moreover at least twice in the past 10-years, major clerics affiliated with Sunni Islam’s “Vatican,” Al-Azhar University, have invoked this tradition in public, one specifically emphasizing its “authenticity.”

. . . I cherish Anila Ali’s kind sentiments toward Jews and Israel, expressed in the wake of Hamas’ October 7th jihad carnage in southern Israel. Simultaneously, I find her dishonest tinkering with Qur’an, hadith, and Islamic law to “validate” these sentiments, corrosive and unacceptable. Well-intentioned Muslim interlocutors like Ms. Ali must summon the intellectual courage to offer forthright critiques of the canonical Islamic Jew-hatred and jihadism that animates the global pandemic of Muslim Antisemitism and Antisemitic violence.

Yeah, I kind of suspected it was too good to be true. Psaki psircling back to Gaza, Israel cannot contemplate a cease fire. It cannot happen. It must not happen. Allegedly there are reports that Israel is actually negotiating with Hamas for some sort of 5-day truce and prisoner exchange. I hope that that is just smoke and mirrors. Rabbi Dov Fischer says it best:

"Dresden" them until Hamas releases the hostages and surrenders.

Surely, Israel by now understands who and what they are dealing with. Any pause and any let up, no matter how brief, will only allow this cancer to regain its strength. I grieve for those being held by these animals. This assumes that they are even still alive and if they are, given what we have seen on 10/7, they might even be praying for death. Horrible as this is, securing their release must take a back seat to the primary goal of wiping Hamas from the face of the earth. And now it seems as if with Hamas about to go down, Hezbollah is perhaps on the verge of a continuation war from Lebanon.

Wipe them out. Wipe them all out. No quarter. That includes that trio of fat evil ticks running the show from Qatar.

* * * * * * * * * *

I had meant to cover a couple other stories that would likely get lost in the sauce between Israel as well as the huge election of Javier Milei in Argentina. And both of them involve wholly or in part the Supreme Court.

First was this completely disgusting non-decision:

The Supreme Court, without comment, rejected to hear former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s appeal for a new trial.

Chauvin claimed the Minnesota state courts did not give him a fair trial, thus denying him the right to a fair trial that the Sixth Amendment protects.

The state charged Chauvin with the death of George Floyd in May 2020. The death led to many destructive and fiery riots across the nation. . .

The trial court and the Minnesota Court of Appeals should have presumed that this potent threat of harm to the jurors and the community prejudiced the jury pool. But in considering the motion to transfer, the district court focused on the publicity surrounding Mr. Floyd’s death and the trial. Repeatedly noting the district court’s “wide discretion” in this regard, the Minnesota Court of Appeals remarkably added that other cases “involved circumstances more extreme than those in [Petitioner’s] trial.” This is not only absurd, but the lower courts wholly failed to consider the palpable threat of harm to the jurors, their families, and their community from a “not guilty” verdict. It is now an unfortunate given that every police-involved critical incident is immediately criticized by significant segments of American society—regardless of the facts. Under these extreme circumstances, the failure to transfer the trial to less dangerous venue denied Petitioner his Sixth Amendment right to a fair trial.

It does not take a lawyer or law student to know that Chauvin did not receive a fair trial.

Chauvin did not get a fair trial. Professor Jacobson wrote:

I wrote near the end of the trial that there was evidence that Chauvin kept the pressure on Floyd too long, even after he was subdued, handcuffed, and unconscious, and that could provide a basis for conviction. It is possible that someone was guilty of a crime, but also did not receive a constitutionally required fair trial. This is such a case.

There is no excuse other than rank cowardice and or intimidation by outside forces. There are now confirmed forensic and eyewitness accounts that the criminal Floyd died as a result of his resting arrest after overdosing on his drug stash to avoid it's confiscation, on top of the fact that he was already in poor health.

To toss this decision alone and grant a new trial, let alone a new trial showing he was wrongfully convicted would have unleashed hell on America's cities all over again while destroying the cherished leftist narrative of police racism as a means of white supremacy.

And with that preamble, look what else might be coming SCOTUS' way.

Election rigging comes in a whole bunch of flavors. Beyond actual fraud, there’s lawfare.

Vote for politicians who back voter ID and cleaning up voter rolls? Great. They’re elected and they even do it. And then even if the Justice Department doesn’t step in, some leftist group or groups will sue leading to a “settlement” that terminates election reform. Sometimes state and local authorities even secretly collaborate to be sued and then they immediately agree to a “settlement” that ends election reform. Or friendly judges give them exactly what they want.

Take this insane case out of Georgia.

A federal judge in Georgia on Monday ordered two counties to reverse a decision removing more than 4,000 voters from the rolls ahead of the Jan. 5 runoff elections that will decide control of the U.S. Senate.

The judge, Leslie Abrams Gardner — the sister of former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a prominent ally of [fake]President-elect Joe Biden who has led voter registration efforts across the state — concluded that the counties appeared to have improperly relied on unverified change-of-address data to invalidate registrations in the two counties.

The suit, brought by Majority Forward, represented by National Democratic Party attorney Marc Elias, followed an effort to challenge the lengthy roster of voters simply because their registrations appeared to match U.S. Postal Service change-of address records.

Abrams Gardner, whose husband was just busted for human trafficking, refused to recuse.

Marc Elias has built an empire out of election litigation, but the Dems are moving beyond him and there’s a massive infrastructure of election lawfare in place, ready and waiting for 2024.

But what if private parties couldn’t just sue? Remember, courts decided that none of the conservative litigants in 2020 had standing. Among all the various reasons is that the Voting Rights Act was really systemic political discrimination posing as civil rights legislation. It allowed Democrats to rig elections and to seize control of state electoral practices. But the VRA was never meant to allow private parties to conduct election lawfare. And a nuclear bomb just went off on election lawfare in the 8th circuit.

U.S. District Judge Lee Rudofsky, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, ruled in February 2022, however, that only the head of the Justice Department, the U.S. attorney general, can bring Section 2 lawsuits and dismissed an Arkansas redistricting case brought by advocacy groups representing black voters in the state. On Monday, that lower court ruling was upheld in a 2-1 vote by a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, whose rulings apply to Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. “For much of the last half-century, courts have assumed that [Section 2] is privately enforceable. A deeper look has revealed that this assumption rests on flimsy footing,” wrote Circuit Judge David Stras, a Trump appointee, in the majority opinion joined by Judge Raymond Gruender, an appointee of former President George W. Bush.

It’s a good decision. The VRA itself is broken and widely abused. It’s systemic political discrimination that private lawfare crowdsourced into nationwide election rigging.

But wait a minute.

This is very obviously going to the Supreme Court. And what happens then? I have limited confidence in Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett who have already racked up a fine collection of betrayals. . . .

. . . How is that going to play out here? Quite possibly not so well. The trouble is that when four conservative justices are each a potential swing vote, and they can’t always be predicted, anything can happen. The 8th circuit decision could fundamentally change election or law… or be shut down by Roberts and whoever he can get on his team.

And there's the massive proof in the release of the full J-6 surveillance tapes thanks to our newly installed House Majority Leader that shows what we all had either known or suspected from the get-go: that J-6 was a Democrat/DOJ/FBI op. Innocent people are still rotting in the Garland Archipelago over it.

All of these Democrat Lefty narratives if they tumble will fall right on top of the Left and the globalists. Sic transit gloria Roberts.

Feh.
