The Morning Report — 2/27/24

wishyouherebidenflame.jpg

Good morning, kids. You can measure desperation with leftists in a couple of ways. First, there's violence. Even with a media that acts as both shield and cudgel in terms of advancing a preferred narrative while bashing any strong voices that run contra to same, there's nothing like a Molotov cocktail, riot or even an assassination attempt or two to get the point across. And that seems to be where we are.

The question is, while the violence may be nod-and-a-wink approved of or even actively orchestrated by the Junta in power, will it get to a point where it becomes out of control? My guess is we're about to find out. While each of these several incidents in their own right are worthy of an Ace of Spades flaming skull, the fact that they occurred for all intents and purposes almost simultaneously makes you sit up and take notice.

First, we have a little envelope of white powder, and it is not like Hunter Biden's llello at all:

“It’s just become a little bit too commonplace that this sort of stuff happens,” Donald Trump Jr. told the Daily Caller. “Clearly, if this happened to a prominent Democrat it wouldn’t be tolerated and would drive news coverage for weeks. The media would blame all Republicans and force them to answer for it, But since it’s me, radical haters on the left will largely get a free pass and the media will barely flinch.”

“It doesn’t matter what your politics are, this type of crap is unacceptable,” Donald Trump Jr. continued. “This is actually the second white powder substance envelope that’s been mailed to me. The last time we had this happen, it was during my father’s presidency and my then-wife opened it up with my kids by her side. So, it’s just sad that we live in a society where politics and the left’s hatred of my father would drive people to do such crazy things, but that’s where we are unfortunately.”

As Don Jr. alludes to Ace aphorism #1, "Our speech is violence. Their violence is speech." What's almost as horrifying about this is the fact that the reaction from the Left at best is silence and at worst is to not only wish death on Don Jr.. and his family but to cheer it and defecate on his and his family's graves believing them to be a cancer needing eradication. This is the depths to which they have dragged us.

Case Number 2, and while this one raises an eyebrow for a couple of reasons, it should not be discounted out of hand considering who the supposed target is:

Allegedly, a man named Vasiliev Pyotr Alexievich has been arrested in Moscow under suspicion that he was paid by Ukrainian Intelligence to assassinate independent journalist Tucker Carlson while he was in Russia to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin.

There’s video of Alexievich allegedly confessing to the plot to kill Carlson through a car bomb at the Four Seasons hotel he was staying at. The man was arrested by authorities before he could carry out the terrorist action. .Above, I said “allegedly” because Alexievich’s confession almost seemed scripted. One cannot put it past the Russians to produce propaganda, but we can also not discount these reports as false.

So, okay. Vladimir Putin, an ex-KGB officer and current presiding strongman of Russia knows a thing or two about propaganda, to put it mildly. And Tucker Carlson's recent sit-down with him was less of an interview with interesting bi-play than it was allowing Putin to drone on incessantly as to his side of the Ukraine conflict. But the fact remains that Tucker Carlson is the most prominent actual journalist on the right (his recent foot-in-mouth stupidities about Israel as CBD wrote about the other week notwithstanding). If Zelensky were to take him out, the Dems would openly cheer that as "striking a blow for freedom" or some such rot.

But wait, there's more! Yeah, I know. It's on a bomb planted at the Alabama attorney general's office. Big deal, ho hum.

An explosive device was detonated outside of Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall’s office early Saturday morning, he said in a statement on Monday.

Marshall said that “no staff or personnel were injured by the explosion" . . . The announcement did not say if a motive has been identified or if there are any suspects. . .

. . . When asked if the incident could be related to Marshall’s stance on in vitro fertilization (IVF), Amanda Priest, spokesperson for Marshall’s office, told CNN that media should “not jump to conclusions about a specific issue.”

One day before the incident, Marshall announced that his office had no intention of using a recent Alabama Supreme Court decision to prosecute families pursuing IVF or IVF providers. “[Marshall] has no intention of using the recent Alabama Supreme Court decision as a basis for prosecuting I.V.F. families or providers,” Katherine Robertson, the office’s chief counsel, said in a statement.

In February, the state Supreme Court ruled that frozen embryos are considered unborn children under state law and that anyone who destroys them may be held liable under the state’s Wrongful Death of a Minor Act. The ruling has raised complex legal and ethical questions and has sent Democrats and Republicans scrambling to introduce legislation to protect IVF in the state. At least three clinics in Alabama have reportedly paused IVF services following the ruling.

I'm linking a pretty thorough essay right here on this case, in particular on how it obviously redounds, or is intended to redound on Roe, Roe, Roe the Vote! That is, in reality it doesn't but desperate Dems will of course do anything to distract from the disaster of the past three years, most especially that of the erased border which I will get to in a moment.

But in this instance, the salient point is the planting of a bomb at the offices of the AL AG as, yet again, the ultimate expression of Leftist free speech, which given the completely corrupt nature of our justice system, is absolutely inalienable – but only when it comes from their mouths, or from their Weather Underground pipe bomb factories.

These days, the Weather Underground is above ground and, guess where?!

At least sixteen universities are promoting the book “How to Blow Up A Pipeline,” which outlines for readers how to commit eco-terrorism — oftentimes making it required reading, a Daily Wire investigation found.

The book was published in 2021 by Swedish professor Andreas Malm and calls for terrorism and overthrowing capitalism, acknowledging that people will be killed as a result. “Demolish them, burn them, blow them up. Let the capitalists who keep investing in the fire know that their properties will be trashed,” the book says.

Now multiple state-funded universities took classes that were nominally on unrelated topics, and contorted them into courses that read just four books, including the pipeline manifesto and a communist manifesto. At the University of California-Berkeley, for example, students of Geography & Interactive Biology were required to read the book. Instructors Jake Kosek and Paul Fine took what was ostensibly a biology course and transformed it into one on “decolonization.” The syllabus states that the “class focuses on the scientific practice of modern botanical taxonomy as a colonial formation that conditions our modern relations” and how the names of plants “were often forged to be of service to empire-building.”

The lessons across the country suggest that universities’ support for terrorism extends beyond the students supporting Hamas on many campuses. In fact, the book looks to Palestinian terrorists for inspiration, advising that, “As part of the mass resistance in the besieged Gaza Strip in the spring of 2018, Palestinians invented techniques for sending kites and helium-inflated condoms carrying incendiary materials across the wall to burn Israeli property.”

. . . A New York Times interviewer was taken aback at Malm’s willingness to cause death. “It’s hard to think that deaths don’t become inevitable if there is more sabotage,” the interviewer said.

“Sure, if you have a thousand pipeline explosions per year, if it takes on that extreme scale. But we are some distance from that, unfortunately,” Malm answered.

“Don’t say ‘unfortunately,’” the interviewer interjected.

“Well, I want sabotage to happen on a much larger scale than it does now. I can’t guarantee that it won’t come with accidents,” Malm replied . . .

. . . “If I were part of a group where something like blowing up a pipeline was perceived as a tactic that could be useful for our struggle, then I would gladly participate,” he said. “I have engaged in as much militant climate activism as I have had access to” and “I’ve done things that I can’t tell you or that I wouldn’t tell others publicly.”

Ah yes, the old Eggs v Omelettes argument. Funny how proto-Democrat Josef Stalin said "The death of one is a tragedy. The death of a million is a statistic." But that becomes rather an inconvenient truth, so to speak, when the zapato is on the other foot. Here is odious lipid mass Katie Porker to 'splain you:

University of Georgia police arrested Jose Antonio Ibarra, an immigrant from Venezuela who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, and charged him with murdering 22-year-old nursing student Laken Riley. Porter, who is running for Senate, tried to deflect attention from Ibarra’s immigration status.

“Well, I think what a horrible tragedy likes, like this happens, I think whenever we‘re dealing with violent crime, there is a sense of outrage, of sadness and of loss, but I think the important thing to focus on is any one instance shouldn‘t shape our overall immigration policy, which has so many different facets, including economic choices about what workers to allow and how to create prosperity in America,”Porter told CNN host Erin Burnett. “So the situation is tragic and it‘s a loss and it‘s important to acknowledge that, but also to recognize all the other how all the other parts of immigration policy fit together.”

If only that fat slag read the Morning Report yesterday, she'd have been able to adjust her math to at least FOUR innocent women (War on Women!) who were raped and/or murdered by our Spark-of-Divinity boys. And it's a hell of a lot more than that considering at least a third of all violent criminals behind bars are illegal aliens. If by "creating prosperity in America" Porker means fueling the funeral industry, then for sure open borders is great for the economy!

As for that cupcake who immolated himself in front of the Israeli embassy, he has a rather interesting résumé:

If you had told the average person that an anarchist or an airman had set himself on fire to protest Israel’s campaign against Islamic terrorists, you would get two very different reactions.

Unsurprisingly the media led with the data point most likely to produce a favorable reaction. And Aaron Bushnell cynically played the same game, wearing (the wrong) uniform to his Hamas suicide attempt rather than the Antifa red in which he had been previously photographed.

The Washington Post gets around to admitting that Bushnell was an “anarchist” . . . But the Washington Post then misleadingly suggests he was raised in a Christian cult. . . The reality is COJ was a leftist cult that appealed to high-flying liberals.

A 1985 article in Boston magazine characterized the C of J members as a “roll call €¦ from the Social Register and Who’s Who” — executives or children of executives of major corporations, an ex-chairman of the global accounting firm that is now Ernst & Young and former president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, an ex-assistant defence secretary, a former senior editor from Doubleday, family scions of Texas oil and agriculture money, the daughter of a former president of the New York Stock Exchange, a Rockefeller heiress (Isabel Lincoln Elmer, self-styled Cinderella Rockefeller), celebrity Christians such as Jeff and Carrie Buddington, former hippie drug dealers featured in Life magazine…

COJ’s leading ladies appropriated Christianity to found an otherwise generic cult. They were not religious per se until they started to run a faith-healing operation. If you doubt their politics, look at the laudatory New York Times orbit and the fact that most of the critical stories about COJ have come from conservative media outlets like The Boston Herald and Canada’s Globe and Mail.

Who’s the sort of person who would commit suicide in a graphic public way for his politics? Aaron Bushnell was a former leftist cult member who hooked up with anarchist and socialist groups in search of an identity and then killed himself for their approval.

And somehow this guy managed to get into the Air Force unvetted and unchecked. Meh, remember Spenser Rapone, who graduated no doubt with honors from West Point with the Marxist graffiti in his hat? This is the military after being "fundamentally transformed" by Barack Obama. A military that identifies the key threats to our national security as white supremacy and climate change.

Frankly, I'm rather shocked that this Aaron Bushnell psycho didn't strap on a PLO Islami-kaze belt and take out the Israeli embassy instead of just himself.

Meh, that is coming, my friends. For sure that is coming, if not soon then for sure some time this November.

    ABOVE THE FOLD, BREAKING, NOTEWORTHY

  • Michael Walsh: "Today, in an imperfect, recedingly Christian capitalist society the rebellion has taken root, having learned to play by the system's economic rules and create large fortunes (most of the obscene wealth in the U.S. these days is on the hard Left) for itself, but still nursing its ancient ideological grudges and cursing the very freedoms that make their lives here possible. They won't rest."
    Christian Right Gonna Get Yo Momma
  • "While several Democrats and liberal activists openly called on former Justice Stephen Breyer to retire — which he eventually did in 2022 — so far, there hasn't been a major push to do the same with Sotomayor, mostly because of the optics of pressuring the first Latina justice to retire. The revelation of her medical issues may change that.  And it's not outside the realm of possibility that Sotomayor, who has recently expressed frustration with being on a conservative Supreme Court, may opt not to make the same "mistake" that Ruth Bader Ginsburg made."
    Is Sotomayor's Time on the Supreme Court Nearing an End?
  • "Religions of death have always had their pagan priests and priestesses."

  • "Does this president have First Amendment protection for his speech that day? In the court of public opinion, if DeRay [McKesson] is freed from his legal liability on First Amendment grounds with the BLM body count as high as it is, how could Donald Trump be found guilty with none?"
    What Do Donald Trump and This BLM Protester Have in Common?
  • “If you’re successful and you’re white males, it’s because of course you were. And if you’re unsuccessful as an African American, it’s both the deck was stacked against you. And I just wasn’t a person who ever believed that. And that wasn’t how I was raised. And it’s not what I was taught. But it was the overarching political philosophy of my party.” (If we can successfully preach this message, oh boy! - jjs)
