The Morning Report — 4/29/24

Good morning, kids. You know everything is upside down when John Fetterman of all people turns out to be a voice of reason. Well, sometimes situations such as we find ourselves yield the occasional positive, if not head-shakingly bizarre result.

“It’s a great American value to protest, but I don’t believe living in a pup tent for Hamas is really helpful,” Fetterman said. . . Since the start of the anti-Israel encampments, students at several universities and colleges have been suspended, those participating in the encampments have been arrested, and graduation ceremonies have been canceled.

Fetterman added that there was a “germ of antisemitism in all of these protests and then sometimes it flares up,” continuing on to reference words Khymani James, one of the leaders of the anti-Israel encampment at Columbia University, had said.

“One of the leaders in Columbia said some just awful things talking about, ‘Well, they’re lucky I’m not killing Zionists,’ and things like that. And, then he defended himself by saying, ‘Well, those were taken out of context,’ and I’m like, well those are very similar to the way the college presidents, same kind of language.”

. . . Since Hamas’ attack, Fetterman has defended Israel and criticized anti-Israel protesters.

I honestly cannot remember if I really knew at all how John Fetterman, a trust fund layabout whose résumé consisted of getting getting elected mayor of a dying Pennsylvania coal town and driving the final nail in its coffin, somehow emerged as a viable candidate for US Senator.

Dao-Min Yen election shenanigans aside, there he was dressed in grubby sweats and sneakers, ready to take his seat in "the greatest deliberative body in the world." At the time, I thought how low can one be to be so disrespectful to not show up in a suit and tie? Yet considering the corruption, venality and tyrannical thuggery that infests that building and every other one in DC, why should I get all exercised? Recall the late, unlamented Harry Reid, currently roasting in hell, complaining how he could smell the body odor of ordinary commoners visiting the Rotunda. All things considered, Fetterman actually is a breath of fresh air.

Was it the stroke, the lump on his neck, or even his odd wife Giselle that brought out this latent flash of sanity, reason and actual moral clarity from someone who at first glance should fit quite comfortably between the likes of Titty-Caca AOC and multi-millionaire Marxist Bernie Sanders? Who knows, and who cares? His voice of support of the state of Israel (and IIRC his anti-open borders statements) have been full-throated and consistent since this nightmare began last October. For sure, he is a liberal if not Leftist, but to go against something that is a shibboleth and central tenet of the anti-American Left – especially now during an election year when the Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants/Kalorama Klown Komintern is desperate to rally their rabid base – surely is political death. But still her persists.

Speaking of old yocks taking their teeth out at the Automat, standing on the table and yelling about socialism as the answer to anti-Semitism, Here's Communist Bernie Sanders shrieking in favor of anti-Semitism:

“Antisemitism  is a vile and disgusting ideology which has resulted in the deaths of many, many millions of people in the last hundred years. We’ve got to oppose it in every form. Do I doubt for a moment that antisemitism exists that is growing in the United States, that exist among some people in the protest movement, of course.” He continued, “Here is the reality right now, what Netanyahu right-wing extremist and racist government is doing, is unprecedented in modern history of warfare. "

His condemnation of anti-Semitism is merely cover and false equivocation to enable him to slime Bibi. He goes on to cite the blood-libel about Israel committing genocide. But he's absolutely correct in that what Israel is doing "is unprecedented in modern history of warfare." No other nation on earth, including the United States, has even done more to try and prevent collateral damage and civilian death, greatly increasing the risk to its own soldiers, than the state of Israel has done in its operations since 10/7.

Al Jazeera, which is no friend of Israel, stipulates that Israel has killed 34,000 Gazans (including the 12,000 or so Hamas terrorists it intended to kill) with 75,000 tons of explosives.  If we assume that all were one-ton charges, Israel has deployed the destructive power of more than 120 Hiroshima-class bombs to kill less than half the number killed by only one such weapon in August 1945.  This reinforces the proposition that Israel is wielding violence with almost superhuman precision against terrorists who are often menaces to peaceful Gazans as well as Israelis.  It is also to be noted that collateral losses among noncombatants, while regrettable, were less than two for every terrorist despite the terrorists’ use of the noncombatants as human shields. . .

. . . In summary, then, the difference between the war in Gaza and traditional wars is twofold.  Unlike legal combatants of all nations who carry their arms openly, follow the rules of war, and do not use civilians as human shields, Hamas consists solely of terrorists who deserve death.  In addition, even though Hamas does its best to use noncombatants as human shields, Israel has done close to a superhuman job of excising the terrorists with minimal harm to their human surroundings.

One major quibble with this author is that unless the civilian is under the age of 4 or 3, is incapable of language and crawling around in his diapers, there are virtually no innocent civilians in Gaza. From scouting targets months or even years before the assault courtesy of being given work visas by Israel to actively participating in the kidnapping and detention of Israelis after the attacks began, they are de facto enemy combatants and as a result legitimate targets. Yet Israel is doing whatever it can to take out only those identified as Hamas cadres.

Psaki-psircling back, given the choice between Fetterman and Sanders, it's a no-brainer. No pun intended. Meanwhile, those allegedly on our side in the GOP are proving themselves as Grifting Oleaginous Parasites, shoveling more money to Ukraine, a few relative shekels to Israel, and a not inconsiderable sum to Gaza. And guess where that money winds up?

The $9.1 billion is earmarked, of course, as “humanitarian assistance,” but that ruse is fooling fewer and fewer people. Just The News reported Friday that the bill is “under scrutiny” in the first place because the amount that Gaza will be getting is “significantly more than the annual gross domestic product of the Gaza Strip,” and no safeguards are in place to ensure that the money will not fall into the wrong hands: “critics say the U.S. is essentially funding Hamas through the bill.”

Officially, this massive cash outlay is for "Migration and Refugee Assistance" and "International Disaster Assistance." It is so massive, in fact, that it is “more than four times the amount of the annual GDP in the Gaza Strip, which was about $2 billion last year, according to the United Nations.” The Gaza Strip is about to be awash in American money, and that means that even if Hamas has already burned through the $10 billion that Old Joe Biden and his henchmen sent to Hamas’ money men in Tehran last month, more billions are on their way.

The Biden regime doesn’t want you to worry about this. The bill “calls for the Secretary of State to establish oversight measures to ensure that the aid is not diverted by Hamas,” but really, what can he possibly do short of establishing an American military presence in Gaza? Hamas controls Gaza. There is no force in Gaza that is strong enough to stand up to Hamas. So provisos written into legislation drafted and passed in faraway Washington, D.C. is one thing, but the reality on the ground in Gaza is something else altogether, and the Biden regime must know that. 

Morton Klein, President of the Zionist Organization of America, stated it plainly: "Biden and this administration knows that almost all of it,” that is, the aid, “is stolen by Hamas.” That leads to an inescapable conclusion: “We are funding Hamas. Do you realize the nightmare of this? We are funding Hamas with this 9 billion. What is wrong with this administration?" 

Well, that last question would take longer to answer than there is space on the Internet, but Klein is right: the Biden regime is funding Hamas, which means that American taxpayers are getting soaked to provide for the upkeep of jihad terrorists. Klein also pointed out that by waiving sanctions on Iran and ensuring that billions flow into the mullahs’ coffers, the Biden regime was "funding the biggest funder of terrorism of Islamic terrorism in the world." 

Meanwhile, it seems that Biden's pals didn't get the message. They attacked the site of that so-called "relief pier" the Army is building for them. Your tax dollars at work. Build Back Better, right?

Funny how they're doing all of this, and it's out in the open yet the Code Pinko brigade still showed up in force to heckle Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants at the Ministry of Propaganda Octogenarian Fellatio Fest, FKA the White House Correspondents Dinner.

“The Correspondents’ Dinner is nothing more than a celebration and endorsement of the administration’s actions. That is not journalism. That is complicity,” the Code Pink website states.

Footage of the evening’s activities shows protesters banging on drums and yelling chants such as, “Shame, shame, shame on you, for all the terror that you do” and others about the media’s alleged lying . . .

. . . In one clip, what appears to be two attendees arriving for the dinner could be seen being berated by activists, who shouted at the couple. The couple was repeated shamed by one protestor, seen standing next to a sign which had the ABC logo placed adjacent to a phrase reading, “All Bullsh*t Constantly,” and another which had the CNN logo next to the phrase, “Criminal News Network.”

“Shame on you! Children in Gaza are dying! While you dine, children are dying,” one protester could be heard yelling as the couple walked off.

Like Sanders, they're sort of right, if not for all the wrong reasons. "All Bullshit Constantly" and “Criminal News Network" indeed. The "roast" of Biden was a laugh riot. Mostly riot, yet considering he's a vegetable, roasting is an appropriate word in a manner of speaking
