Israel War | Main | Mid-Morning Art Thread
April 18, 2024

The Morning Report — 4/18/24


Good morning, kids. Let me just get this off my chest. Me calling Malig-Nancy Pelosi a warped, venal C-U-Next-Tuesday is, to swipe part of Martin Sheen's dialogue from Apocalypse Now! "like handing out speeding tickets at the Indianapolis 500." Her nakedly prevaricated words in supposed defense of Israel slid off one side of her halitosis-tinged forked tongue while off the other she declared Benjamin Netanyahu to be a bloodthirsty war monger who had to be deposed.

For anyone who considers himself/herself/they-self to be a Jew, a classic liberal or even a Democrat a la JFK or Harry Truman (and let's face it, that concept was and is pure mythology given the actual bloody history of that party since Burr murdered Hamilton in cold blood), and continue to vote for and support that party is insanity. It's living a lie, unconsciously or worse, with one's eyes wide open.

So desperate are they to cling to power, because they truly are on the verge of seizing absolute power forever, that they are doing everything they can to court a voting bloc comprised of those who excused and/or orgasmically cheered on the greatest mass-slaughter of Jews since Birkenau and Babi Yar (words and concepts now ignored in our schools or if uttered can be cited as "hate speech"), that they actually green-lit Iran's mass drone attack on Israel which, depending on how Israel responds (and they must and will) could lead to a regional war that could go global. If not nuclear.

Insanity. Incompetence. Ideology. Put those three words in any combination you want, with or without hyphens to construct one or more adverbs or adjectives, and it adds up to the same thing.

That's Pelosi. That's the Democrat-Left. But that said, what the actual hell is the GOP? The former will obviously get a complete pass from a media that shamelessly and openly serves as their cheerleaders and disseminators of agitprop. Yet, someone like Marjorie Taylor-Greene gets ripped to shreds, not just from the Left but from the Right. Or to be more specific, from the pseudo-right.

She was among those who led the charge to dump Frank Luntz's useless cabana boy Kevin McCarthy from the speakership for his actions and inactions in either blocking Junta policy or advancing conservatism. That is, the will of the most put upon minority-majority in history: American-Americans. Well, she and others managed to replace him. Yet in the end, all they did was swap deck chairs on the Titanic.

With most Americans absolutely opposed to any further wastage of money we do not have on Ukraine, and screaming for our slimmest of slim majorities in the House to block the Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants Junta as it continues to erase our border and flood us with millions of foreign peasants, criminals and terrorists, what does he do? Call for billions more to Ukraine as well as some lesser sum to Israel, ostensibly as a shrewd move to get the Dems to vote "no" and lay the blame on them while getting absolutely nothing in return to seal the damned border and halt the invasion.

So MTG is out to oust Johnson. Is this the right thing to do so close to an election, and with only a one-vote majority in the House? Say what you will about that, but the reason we have only a one-vote majority is because Ronna Romney McDaniel and the Grifting Oleaginous Parasites sabotaged what should have been a red wave '22 midterm election and worse, a wave of sudden GOP resignations that stink of a preemptive strike at Donald Trump and the MAGA movement in anticipation of his return to the Oval Office.

Note, the funding bill for Ukraine and Israel is being lauded by Biden and the Junta and his cue cards indicate that he's eager to sign off on it ASAP, pending the selection/sharpening of whatever color he chooses from his Crayola 64-pack.

If that's not enough, insult meet injury:

The inside story of how House Speaker Mike Johnson was flip-flopped on Ukraine aid starts with his top policy adviser, a former lobbyist whose clients include a number of major companies who have issued corporate statements indicating some kind of interest in the war.

Johnson’s policy director, Dan Ziegler, was–until he joined the Speaker’s office as his top policy aide when Johnson won the Speakership last year–a lobbyist with the firm Williams & Jensen. He had previously worked for Johnson in other capacities, but left Johnson to become a lobbyist and accumulated a client list that included several top companies–some of which seem to have a financial interest in seeing Congress pass Ukraine aid. The lobbying firm for which he worked represents a number of top companies. Lobbying disclosures reveal Ziegler represented many of these companies, including several that have made corporate statements about the war in Ukraine or issued press statements or other public guidance saying it could affect their business operations.

What’s more, Ziegler also represented the highly controversial News Media Alliance, which was lobbying Congress when he worked for Williams & Jensen to push a dangerous proposal that would have severely hurt conservative media. That proposal, called the Journalism Competition & Preservation Act (JCPA), has died several times in Congress but has kept coming back to life thanks to lobbyist pressure.

Ziegler is not the only one in Johnson’s inner circle who has issues. Several other staffers working for Johnson  have a series of troubling developments in their backgrounds, and as of now it is unclear if the Speaker himself is aware of all of this or not. Either way, this raises serious questions about his management of the conference and his handling of major legislative proposals like the foreign aid plan before Congress this week–and it undercuts the explanation several Johnson apologists have offered up that he is just having a tough time managing a one-seat majority and things would not be different if he resigned and Republicans picked a new Speaker. . .

. . .The Speaker intends to set up a Saturday evening vote in the House of Representatives on the plan that completely abandons border security and instead pushes to funnel tens of billions more U.S. tax dollars to foreign countries like Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. In a string of recent betrayals by the Speaker–the recent government funding plan and last week’s reauthorization of section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) without a requirement for warrants for surveillance on American citizens–this one stings America First conservatives even more.

Despite calls for his resignation from top conservative Republicans like Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Thomas Massie (R-KY)–who say they are prepared to vote to remove Johnson by force if necessary–Johnson has tripled down in moving forward on the matter, not just completely ignoring conservatives aligned with former President Donald Trump who are openly criticizing the effort, but authorizing staff and allies like House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) to attack them in order to achieve congressional passage of this radical agenda.

But Marjorie Taylor-Greene is an unprincipled, undisciplined, loose cannon wackadoo that needs to shut up, sit down and behave or else, or else . . . or else what?

Meh, what do these bills mean anyway when Joey's puppet masters pull shit like decreeing student loan debt forgiveness – for the second or third time already (I've lost count) – despite a Supreme Court decision declaring it unconstitutional and illegal?

How is that EO even carried out in practical terms? And doesn't the House of Representatives control the purse strings? I'm sure Mike Johnson will be all over this, right? Pfft. Well, at least he's tight with . . . Jake Tapper.

Speaking of the border and the GOP stepping on a rake, the vote to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas was effectively shut down in the Senate by Chuck Schemer. Even if it succeeded, Mayorkas would've been replaced with someone equally ideological and incompetent and nothing would have effectively changed. The Deep State bench is indeed dark and very, very deep.

That said, considering that the open border and all the concomitant disasters that have happened with the massive invasion of foreigners as a result has made it the #1 issue that will decide the election. Dao-Min Yen, martial law and/or assassination by the courts or otherwise of Trump notwithstanding, did the Dems blow it?

Here's something to consider. Maybe this time, the Dems stepped on a rake by not making Mayorkas the scapegoat, declaring the problem solved and screaming "Roe Roe Roe the Vote!" nonstop for the next seven months, or however long it will take to find the counterfeit ballots to put Biden over the top.

C'mon, now! I need something, anything, to cling to!
