The Morning Report - 2/24/21 [J.J. Sefton]

Good morning, kids. Wednesday and the inexorable drift towards "getting our hair mussed" as General Buck Turgidson would say continues apace, perhaps even gaining a step. The junta that rigged the election and seized power is now going full tilt boogie in its effort to consolidate it. The already weaponized law enforcement and national security bureaucracies which attempted to overthrow now President-in-Exile Trump in 2016 and afterwards is using the pretext of the violence at the January 6th protest - which was pre-planned and caused by the Democrats and their BLM/Antifa terror squads - to purge and persecute any and all threats and enemies of this new and likely soon-to-be all powerful State.

In less than a month in office, the Biden [junta] has clearly defined itself and its party as a fascist vanguard, driven by a racist agenda, and unconstrained by constitutional principle. It chooses to rule by presidential diktat, even though it controls both Houses of Congress. It is an aggressive pursuer of political division behind a deceptive smokescreen of "healing" and "unity," It is busily exploiting a fake "armed insurrection" to justify witch-hunts of the military, the capital police, members of Congress and the opposition media, at the moment Fox and Newsmax, whom they want to suppress. Its legislative radicals have called for the expulsion of half the Republican conference, without rebuke from their leaders. Because these actions are indefensible in a democracy, the Democrat Party is brazenly advancing these destructive, anti-democratic measures using Orwellian doublespeak...

...Thanks to the Democrats, violent attacks on people and property and government buildings had become a "cultural norm" -- to use Biden's unconscionable phrase for looking away when confronted by Chinese genocide and enslavement of 2 million Uighur Muslims. Yet with the help of cowardly Republicans, afraid to call these aggressions by their proper names, the Democrats were able to turn the Capitol melee into a preposterous Reichstag Fire -- the same that provided Hitler, the elected chancellor of the Weimar Republic with an excuse for destroying the Republic and silencing his opponents.

The difference was that for Hitler the phantom enemy that justified his depredations was the Jews, while for the fascist Democrats it is "white supremacists," whose actual numbers are fewer even than the Jews. The Marxists of Black Lives Matter are the actual authors of the lie that the January 6 melee in the capital was a "white supremacist coup." But even the pathetic Merrick Garland was forced to repeat the canard - without offering a shred of evidence - at his confirmation hearing.

I think the word "forced" gives way too much deference to Garland. He knows it's bullshit, we know it's bullshit, and he knows that we know that he knows it's bullshit. But you'll be happy to know that Garland has the full confidence and support of... Mitch McConnell. Yay. Bipartisanship.

Well, even when the Manolo-Blahnik jackboot is on our throat, at least we have the courts to turn to for redress. Oh, wait a minute...

With Joe Biden now a month into his office as [quote-unquote so-called] president of the United States, Americans may shrug at the court's decision, but we shouldn't: The Supreme Court's abdication of its authority to answer important constitutional questions only encourages further lawlessness by state election officials and courts, undermines voter confidence, and threatens even more chaotic federal elections...

...Maybe the six justices who voted against certiorari believe the country will be better off without relitigating the election. The denial, however, will not heal a country that witnessed state officials and courts change the rules mid-vote -- not just in Pennsylvania, but in Wisconsin and Michigan too. Then her citizens saw the Supreme Court seemingly ignore those violations of the Electors Clause when Texas sought relief in the Supreme Court.

Worse yet will be the damage done to our republic when the bending and breaking of election laws repeats in the future. For now, as Justice Thomas concluded, "by doing nothing," the Supreme Court invites "erosion of voter confidence." We "citizens deserve better and expect more."

Beyond the institutionalization of election-rigging (at least only when Democrats do it) given the Good Volksgemeinschaft Seal of Approval by SCOTUS, does anyone think that the Court is going to side with the inevitable lawsuits that will be forthcoming when the junta goes after our guns, our unborn children, our houses of worship and the few remaining media outlets that can still disseminate voices of dissent as well as accurate reportage, etc. etc.? With a court like this, who needs to have it packed?
