The Morning Report 10/17/17

atimeforchoosing.jpg

Good morning kids. Well, we're loaded for bear so let's dive right in. First up, in the Mandalay Bay massacre, the security guard who was shot some time before the psycho opened up on the crowd has suddenly disappeared from an urgent care facility shortly before he was going to go before the TV cameras and break his silence. In related news, the bi-sexual GOP and partisan Dems have a bump stock ban bill ready that will, get this, ban ALL semi-automatic rifles. And, tangentially, the great Dana Loesch has been forced to move because some peace loving, tolerant liberals have hurled death threats against her for supporting the NRA. One even threatened to "rape her to death." Pro Tip to the MFM: War on Women right there. Oh wait, Loesch is "untermenshcen."

On the political front, PDT and McYertle had a confab and then a joint presser. Although the latter seemed to be on board for moving ahead with the agenda, he took a shot at Steve Bannon and announced support for incumbent RINOs that Bannon has targeted for primary challenges. Frankly, I think the jowl-encrusted Estabishmentarian leader is scared out of his shell. The more he and others protest that what Bannon is doing is disastrous, the more it convinces me that it's the 100% right thing to do. In fact, if anyone from the Bannon camp is reading this, yours truly is pale, restive and ready to join the team.

Meanwhile, the good Roger Simon has a piece about the four horse's asses of the apocalypse who are sabotaging PDT. One of them he names is Rand Paul, but he does separate him out with a caveat and I do agree with the overall tone of the piece. One of them is of course the perpetually-dying John "Hyman Roth" McCain who clings to life not because he fears his impending reservation in the Infernal Reaches, but to screw the American people until the last grain of sand in the hourglass tumbles down. Amazing how hate can sometimes be even more powerful than love, or even death. He won some sort of award and used the occasion to blast the President's foreign policy; this from the man who helped Obama/Clinton engineer the napalming of the middle east and then the secret arms deal to jihadists in Syria that needlessly wasted the lives of Chris Stevens and three other Americans at Benghazi.

We also have some interesting notes on the judicial front. There's a report that PDT thinks he might have upwards of three SCOTUS picks in his first term, which would set a record. And as Rush said yesterday:

His judicial nominees.... In fact, there's a story here in the Stack I have here that the judicial nominee aspect of what Trump is doing - which is happening under the radar. This is one of the reasons why the confirmation process of these people is so slow is because the Democrats understand that even if Trump serves two terms, the judges that are going to be in place - even after his first term - are going to be sufficient to thwart many attempts to undermine the Trump agenda that the left would normally succeed at in the courts with their judges.

And this is right-on-the-money true. Judicial nominees... Not just the Supreme Court, but all the federal district courts and the appellate court nominees. This is the way the left has always had election insurance. Okay, so they lose a presidential election, or they lose control of the Senate. But they've got their judges that will thwart every attempt by the newly empowered Republicans to implement theirs. We've seen it with Trump and his travel ban, for example. But these judicial nominations that he's making are adding up, and they're going to become even greater in number to the point that he will himself have Trump agenda insurance on the courts long after he's gone.

Well, here's hoping. But one thing that will rain on Rush's and our collective parade is a story that a Chicago judge has declared America a "sanctuary nation." Shockingly, the miscreant in a black robe was a Reagan appointee, which only goes to show. Still, you can tell how good or bad an appointee will be by the viciousness of the opposition from the left. They automatically oppose everyone, so veracity of the attack is the only gauge.

From hither and yon, a good essay from the great Jeffrey Lord that dovetails nicely with my observations about how the Weinstein scandal is an indicator that we are at at a societal inflection point, the FBI has confirmed Comey is a duplicitous lackey scumbag, the Mueller collusion probe has got less than nothing (germane to the investigation, anyway) and finally I leave you with the latest mini-stroke from Nutsy Palsi where she essentially admits that she's older than dirt.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

30 I'm firmly in the camp that every elected official, down to dog catcher, should face a primary challenge every single primary if for no other reason than to remind elected officials that it's not "their" seat.

It infuriates me to read well what has so and so done to deserve to lose his seat. No. A trillion times no. The question should always be framed what has so and so done to deserve to be reelected.


On Trump getting up to four Supreme Court nominations his first term, yeah, I can see that. It has nothing to do with Trump and everything to do with the hands of time ticking inexorably along. Though, speaking of hate keeping you warm, that's why Ginsburg is still with us.

This is where I tell the joke that no one lives longer than the widows of rich men and Supreme Court Justices.

32 I don't trust that 'report' on Trump and three justices.


Axios cited anonymous sources who have spoken with the president. Trump
reportedly told aides that in addition to new Justice Neil Gorsuch, he
expects to appoint replacements for Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader
Ginsburg, and Sonia Sotomayor.



Sounds like more Fake News BS to me.

Trump made it clear that's exactly what he planned to do and he is doing it. That he's doing it via EO is extra-delicious. He's using Obama's weapon against his legacy. Bwahahahahaha!

36 If Trump gets just three total SCOTUS picks it will change the course of the Court to the right for the next generation.

He already had Gorsuch and I think that Ruth "Buzzy" Ginsburg will be next followed by Kennedy.

Not sure if he will get to replace sotamayer though. While she does has diabetes and is obese, she might outlast Trump.

That horse left the barn a long time ago when the feds cut off highway funds unless States reduced the sped limit to 55 and cut off drinking to people under 21.


The courts then ruled that if take the money you take the rules.

68 The Clinton foundation scam will not return the $250K bribe donation from Weinstein. She claims the money has already been spent. Probably on her run for President which of course is illegal for a 'tax free charity'. Or, it has been distributed among the three officers of the company; Her, Bubba, and Chelsea.

I understand what you are getting at with your use of 'inflection point', or turning point. The problem with that phrasing is that history is more multidirectional than linear. It travels in currents, with surges and lulls. Maybe a more apt phrase for the phenomenon you are describing would be "sea change".

79 But The Washington Post and "60 Minutes," in a joint investigation, detailed Marino's involvement in helping pass legislation critics say weakened the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) authority to halt drug distributors.

This reportedly undermined the DEA's effort to stop the flow of prescription opioids, drugs that have contributed to rising overdose death rates.

Schumer called the Washington Post-"60 Minutes" report a "profoundly troubling revelation" as the country faces a prescription drug and opioid overdose epidemic.


... unmentioned, of course, Obama signed the bill ... or just used his AutoPen to do it.

I understand what you are getting at with your use of 'inflection point', or turning point. The problem with that phrasing is that history is more multidirectional than linear. It travels in currents, with surges and lulls. Maybe a more apt phrase for the phenomenon you are describing would be "sea change".

During the revolt of 14 October 1943, about 600 prisoners tried to escape; about half succeeded in crossing the fence, of whom around 50 evaded capture. Shortly after the revolt, the Germans closed the camp, bulldozed the earth, and planted it over with pine trees to conceal its location.

There was also an uprising and mass escape at the time. But by '43 as the Soviets were advancing west, yes, the Germans tried covering up the death camps. In fact, later on, they had both Soviet POWs and Jews dig up the mass graves of the victims shot by the Ensatzgruppen at the start of Barbarossa and then burn the corpses. Then, they too were shot and burned to wipe out all witnesses.

157 Old goat worried about being scaped.

"To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a
century," the Arizona Republican said, "to abandon the ideals we have
advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international
leadership and our duty to remain 'the last best hope of earth' for the
sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who
would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an
attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans
consigned to the ash heap of history."

From yesterday

Another illegal Obama program bites the dust. The EPA's illegal 'sue and settle' crap is now gone. The Obama's EPA would collude with the econazis to start a civil suit to get harsher regulations that they could not push through congress. The EPA would then 'settle out of court' and implement the new regulations whining that they had no choice because 'court order'. This is blatantly illegal but they got away with it because there is no opposition Party.

1. Chicago's not THE most dangerous city in America but Trump acts like it is because racist. Plus Obama lived there so extra racist. Oh, and FOX News, also racist.

2. OK, Chicago's pretty dangerous but that's because it borers Indiana and we all know who was governor of Indiana.

Even without the cameras you have video from each elevator, time of opening of every door and which keycard did it, and time of opening of every stairway emergency door.

And yes, even if you claim to guests that you have no hallway cameras, for their privacy, you have them, hidden, but there for insurance reasons.

True. But by term-limiting everyone, judges and elected officials alike, it goes a very long way in preventing the cronyism, graft and legislating from the bench we have been subjected to.

I also like Levin's idea of 3/5 majority of states having the ability to overturn any SCOTUS decision.

They wouldn' t agree to an MRI because the CAT scan and Doppler were not positive they said the MRI was only used to pinpoint the size and location of a blockage that had shown up on a Doppler or MRI.

281 Another oddity in Vegas. Paddock rented the adjoining room a few days before the shooting and it had the window broken out of it too. His end room was 32135 so what was the adjoining room number? 32134 or 32136. This guy says he was in 32134 which if it wasn't the one with the broken window it would have to be the one that couldn't be adjoining because the stairwell was in between the two rooms.

292 I use to install security cameras in a past career.

So I know a little something about this.

But those hotels are covered with cameras.

Halls, elevators, main floors.

The hall cameras might not be actively watched by people 24/7 but any activity will be recorded. And time stamped.

The cameras in the casino where the money is are actively watched. In case of cheating, some sore loser doing a grab and go with his loses, or if some employee might be cheating and keeping a share of the take.

But a big money casino and hotel will have cameras rolling with the time and location of all the locations.

If a camera went out, It's a safe bet they had a spare and a crew to change it fast.

A good system would have a DVR with a good two weeks worth (at least) of back video before it started getting recored over.

Something like the Las Vegas shooter? The police should have had a copy of all the available footage within an hour of learning what casino the guy was in.

Part of me is pissed off at the arrogance and anti-American attitudes of these black-robed Communist thugs.

But part of me says fcuk it. Let's have this fight. And let's put being forced to bake cake for phaggots , forcing drug tests on school kids , institutionalizing the celebration of Sexual Perversion month on the taxpayers dime and having tax dollars redirected to abortion clinics in there too.

The scary part is that Clarence Thomas disappointed me terribly and I don't trust him. Hopefully Ruthie the Rag Doll will kick the bucket in short order and remove at least one wizened Commie speedbump from setting this country back on track.

Have you tried to drive down the Strip? At any time of the day or night? How could any SWAT Team or large group of regular police get to a major Strip hotel "quickly" to stop a terrorist attack? Las Vegas authorities may be trying to develop a terrorism response plan - for public consumption - that tries to reassure visitors that they will be safe in Vegas. And to try to scare potential terrorists away.

That would have been my advice. But who knows when he hired the lawyer. He might have agreed to the interviews and then hired a lawyer who told him to cancel.

Maybe this was a grand conspiracy concocted by the illuminati and for reasons nobody can explain they have decided not to take credit for randomly killing and injuring hundreds of people but it is equally possible this was a lone nut who did things for reasons nobody can quite understand yet.

384 Tony Kennedy was a Reagan appointee, too. And Reagan would have kicked his ass out of the Oval Office had he known what a power-tripper he became.

Reagan supported ordered immigration. Because he loved this country, he understood why others would too. Leftisis and Globalists want disorderd immigration because they hate this country and want it "fundamentally transformed" into the a UN General Assembly.

btw, the other subterfuge besides the judge-whoring is the Rule by Perma-Blob. Good to see that EPA story in the sidebar, ending the "lawsuit" racket.

They said Trump was the end of American Democracy, but he's restoring it.

He's only ending Swamp Rule--and the Snake Kings hate it.

It's a unique combination of really dumb and unintentionally hilarious, as you might guess.

387 McCain, who was presented with the medal by former Vice President Joe Biden, began by saying he was humbled by the award before eventually lashing out at the nationalism that has swept the U.S. and warning against leaving the nation's place of prominence in the international community.

So to review: He virtue signals and attacks the first American president since Reagan at the time as he LITERALLY received a medal from the Left.

389 "Local commie news is now attempting to suggest the Hollywood perv scandal is also happening within big business and education."


Why are Leftist organizations so misogynistic?

391 There is no interpretation of gun laws too ridiculous to be adopted by a federal court. I remember a case a few years ago when some guy traded his gun for some drugs, and was convicted for the "use of a gun in the commission of a felony," with a severe enhanced penalty.

393 Republican official commentators are in panic mode and I find it very amusing. I don't give a flying fork if the Repulsives lose the house or Senate. I am with Bannon, I've had enough of mercenaries posing as republican politicians. Whorres for the elite, that's what Rinos are.
