The Morning Report 11/1/17

jakehank.jpg

Good morning kids. November begins with the aftermath of yesterday's terror attack in lower Manhattan. On a point of personal privilege, I was in the general area by the courts having just been excused for the day from jury duty and am safe and sound. That said, we are once again dealing with the effects of a post 9/11 environment of toxic political correctness that refuses to identify (PDT notwithstanding, thankfully) who and what we are at war with, and instead uses these attacks as pretexts to blame western, modern Judeo-Christianity as the source of the problem. Not coincidentally, those are the very things that the Left rail against and so yesterday's revelation that ISIS and Antifa are coordinating their efforts to bring us down is not that surprising but certainly alarming. Either covertly via taqqiya and Alinskyite subversion or overtly as we have seen all to many times by the practitioners of "the religion of peace" and more recently by the fiend who shot up a GOP softball practice etc. etc. etc., we are facing a growing threat that Europe is now enduring. We might still have a chance to stem this, but considering the depth and breadth of the subversion, which has been going on for perhaps several decades, the situation is in doubt. So my target for today is Jake Tapper, though he is not alone in the brazen crock-of-shit department today (see here and here too). It's only because he has some sort of phony "down-the-middle-fair-and-square" reputation that only a statement that he made in the wake of yesterday explodes that myth to smithereens. And besides, with all due apologies to Alvy Moore, he does bear an uncanny resemblance to Hank Kimball. Well, not uncanny, but kind of close. Well not close but sort of in the ballpark. Well, not sort of in the ballpark but dead on, intellectually and physically.

The other lead continues to be the aftermath of the Manafort indictments and the Papadopoulos plea. It should be noted that the first announcements from a special prosecutor are usually the most damning. And in light of what was handed down, it's shaping up to be a big fat nothing-burger. That said, the Left has had so much vested in the Trump/Russia collusion meme that even if Mueller came back and exonerated everyone and called it a day, they would not believe it. They cannot believe it and will continue to use this in every way as a pretext to continue the never ending insurrection. Rush, as always, has a great analysis and so it's worth it to check his remarks from yesterday (not linked).

Other things to note, after the sick ad leveled at Ed Gillespie, Virginians have reacted - by tripling the campaign contributions to Gillespie. And while no one is looking, the economic outlook is booming, even without any tax cuts passed in Congress. Have faith. Yes, what we are witnessing can be disheartening, vis a vis the "resistance," but whatever you feel personally about Trump the man/media personality, President Trump is taking it to the Left and to the Media like no one else has ever done. And in so doing, he is exposing them for the slime that they are and perhaps awakening a lot of heretofore unaware or disinterested people in what the hell has happened to the country. From the NFL, to Perveywood to phony "collusion" and fake news, it's all related. Keep the faith.

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

9 I notice that it took the wonderful leaders of NYC hours on hours to call this terrorism and even longer to say the asshole was a muzzie.


The final death toll from the muzzie terrorist in NYC yesterday was 8 dead and 11 wounded. He shouted the standard muzzie crap phrase after exiting the truck but he has no known motive. He was imported to the US in 2010 under the Choom's open door policy for muzzies and agents from South of the border. My recommendation is that as long as Democrats keep letting in these terrorists from muzzie countries you should avoid high profile places like NYC and Washington DC.

35 Jake Tapper gets more cred than that mincing cocksucker deserves because, in part I guess, he used to be a frequent guest of Dennis Miller and, who the fuck knows, seemed to be on Miller's side in terms of calling things straight. Dennis is a pretty smart guy but I thought he was getting played even then. Some online acquaintances seemed to trust Tapper and I just flat out told them they were getting tooled and ridiculed them, difficult as that might be to imagine.

_____________

And the meaning of the phrase is not "God is great," as the ass-wipes in the media were trying to convince people yesterday. The actual meaning is "allah is greater." Greater than what? Greater than you, greater than Jesus Christ, greater than the God you worship, greater than your country.

"Allahu ackbar" is an explicit expression of Islamic supremacism. Yet is it never condemned, nor even acknowledged as such, by our so-called leaders in government and media. Instead, they lie about what it means, and they try to tell us that we -- and our beliefs -- are the problem.

The nearest big town near me is pretty much murder-less, historically. But a couple weeks ago some guy got shot down and killed. The father of the guy had recently moved to the town because the town he came from was getting too violent and he lost a son. So he's now 0-2 with sons.

They were selling it as a white nationalist/Islamaphobe in the news, the usual hand-wringing about backlash and everything. And then it turned out to be an illegal alien. And IIRC, they exchanged words before the guy started chasing the girl and her friends in his car?

From what I have read the evil Joos were allowed to stay if they would "convert". But that was really a continuation of the longstanding practice of Joo hate in Europe. A practice that continues to this day.

And BTW, did you know that the Charleston colony in SC had an open invitation to Jews and other oppressed people in Europe? Charleston used to have a large contingent of Jews.

Today's birthday girl is the silent actress Laura La Plante:

http://tinyurl.com/y86kdrr2

She was signed to Universal Studios and, from 1921 to 1930, was their most popular star, making over 60 movies and enjoying top billing in nearly every one. She's probably best known for the 1927 thriller The Cat and the Canary.

http://tinyurl.com/y8tznv9h

The arrival of talking pictures slowed her career; not because she had a bad voice or was a bad actress, but because the huge wave of new "talking" stars overshadowed her. One of her last films was 1931s God's Gift to Women, co-starring Joan Blondell and Louise Brooks.

http://tinyurl.com/ycgea8oj

She was briefly considered as a replacement for Myrna Loy in The Thin Man series when Loy thought of dropping out. . .

http://tinyurl.com/ya4k68l2

. . .but Loy changed her mind and La Plante's career never really recovered. She retired from movies in 1937 and died in 1996.

Now after the dumbing down of history over the past few decades we have a Twitter lynch mob forming because another honorable man pointed out the truth about him. They are unable to comprehend history did not start with their birth and are not the least bit interested in it except select parts that justify their aggrieved victim status.

It was in Loudoun County, VA, in northern VA, where they loves them some sanctuary. A hispanic illegal alien, and likely gang-banger, got into some kind of argument with a group of muslims, and ended up chasing down and raping and killing one of the girls in the group, who got separated from the others.

Had absolutely zero to do with the Confederacy, or Confederate statues, or white supremacy, or any of that other bullshit the left loves to get idiots worked up about. It was ALL about the "diversity" that Obama imported, both legally and illegally, into our country.

63 I will admit to being very confused by the Left's sudden decree that Robert E. Lee is a horrific monster of utter monsterousness and if you say anything to the contrary you think that slavery was fine as a reporterette yelled after Sarah Huckabee yesterday (I'm paraphrasing but it was something like that).

Robert E. Lee may be one of the, if not the, most tragic figures in American history. He was an honorable man whose honor led him to make a terrible decision.

I cannot help but be struck that the same people who excuse the horrors of Communism by falling back on oh that wasn't real Communism cannot extend any kind of attempt to comprehend the choice that Robert E. Lee made.

As many have noted recently, those on the Left appear to be completely incapable of comprehending anything but a kindergarten level view of the world as Good and Evil, this despite the Left's denial that Evil exists.

It's a march through US history, so that once all Confederates leaders are declared Hitler, they can move on to the next set of dead white men to demonize - will they focus on the founders, or start in in Lincoln and other Northeners? TBD...

And then there is Ta-Nehisi Coates. A man who can't see beyond race. I just saw an episode of Who do you think your are? featuring him. Let's say it was quite a shock for him to find out that one side of the family were never slaves, and it fact were the richest residents of their county. And the family member on the other side that was a slave, at age 28 was given "Free Black" status along with money and land by her owner when he died. The host of the show joked that Ta-Nahisi needs to quit whining about reparations.

101 Re: Ferdinand and Isabella and the Inquisition:

In 1492, the Alhambra Decree declared that all Jews were to leave Spain within 3 months, and after 3 months any Jew remaining in the Kingdom of Spain faced summary execution.

Many Jews (understandably) converted quickly, but in name only, still choosing to maintain traditional practices inside the home, such as observing dietary rules, etc. These became known as "crypto-jews", and as has happened in later centuries, a hysteria seized Spain, claiming that the "Crypto-Jews" were secretly plotting with the Moors to overthrow the Kingdom and also to drink the blood Christian children in their dark Sabboth ceremonies.

(the Spaniards were always more obsessed with blood than anyone else in Christendom, which made them and the Aztecs such a perversely perfect match - a match made in hell, one could say)

Anyway, anyone who was denounced as being a Crypto-Jew would be grabbed by the Inquisition and tortured until they confessed the Evil in their Soul. The Spanish Government very quickly realized how great a tool this was to deal with Dissenters and Critics of all kinds, and other kings of the time did too.

Although we must say, reading the accounts of the time, nobody went in for that with as much gusto as the Spanish did.

He didn't care who was fighting, or why, or how it turned out. It just amused him to watch people stand up and duke it out while he stood on the sidelines and laughed.

It should be noted that the Catholic Church never authorized the Spanish Inquisition, also. It was entirely an act of the Spanish crown. When enough evidence reached Rome of what was going on, the Church demanded it be shut down.

People love to use that as a criticism of Christianity, but the blame for it properly belongs to the Spanish monarchy.

The Civil War was in many ways just the delayed result of the Nullification Crisis a decade before, when the US Government blocked the South from selling its cotton abroad, where it would have been worth more.

They saw the North as treating them like a banana republic, meddling in their economic affairs and damaging their livelihoods, and resented the hell out of it. While slavery was the straw that broke the camel's back, it would have probably come to blows over the next case of economic meddling, no matter what form it took.

The Argentine guys were part of a group that had gone to school together, and they had come to NYC (where one of the members of the group lived) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their graduation (class of 1987).

One of the guys in the group had owned a steel mill in Argentina and was pretty well off, so he paid for the trip for two of the other guys who couldn't afford it. He was one of the ones killed.

They had rented some bikes and gone for a ride together to enjoy the city and each other's company, and this is how it ended. So senseless.

They honestly thought there would be something they could dig up on Trump and they only needed more time to find it, hence we get meuller and the never ending investigation.

The only problem they have is that Trump is squeaky clean, something they can't even conceive of because everyone they know and come in contract with in DC is dirty in some way. To borrow a movie line, it's inconceivable to them that someone can be clean.

Now they are going to have to deal with the fallout from manafort. And this bugs me because they should have know that when manafort went down he most assuredly was not going to go alone. He is going to take the podesta brothers down with him and hillary is going to be hip deep in that mess even if there is no uranium one investigation.

Why the left thought getting a special investigator appointed to take Trump down was a good idea baffles me. There was always a huge potential for a blue on blue result if meuller dug too far, and that is exactly what happened.

198 Whenever we speak of high or low taxes what is really being talked about is the tax rates not the tax revenue. Past a certain point higher tax rates lower tax revenue.

So why would the Party of Big Government be against raising more tax revenue? It's because tax revenue is not the point of income taxes. The point is control of the economy.

High tax rates even though they draw in less revenue lead to the government being a larger share of the economy. The government can under them grow faster than the economy as it has under the Obama administration. High tax rates also cause those paying them to do two things.

They seek tax shelters rather than investing in growth and they will become supplicants to the law makers for individualized tax breaks. Targeted tax cuts. These generated election funds and perks for politicians. This they consider winning not economic growth which doesn't give these benefits to them.

That is the common myth you learn in school but it is a distortion of the truth. You always hear "no taxatioon without representation" but that was a side issue. The real issue was that the taxes (property taxes and excise taxes) had to be paid in gold. And since the colonies could not legally trade with anyone but British companies who only paid in "goods" they could not get any gold. This resulted in their property being seized by the crown and sold to rich merchants for back taxes.


That is what pissed them off.

210 I know we have a few YES fanatics here besides me. The band has just announced that founding keyboard player Tony Kaye will be joining them as a special guest on their 50th anniversary tour.

Very cool. Kaye's more recent work with CIRCA shows he's still got it. Some years ago Kaye did a wonderful, full-length internet-only mixed-media album about 9/11, the video portion of which makes it pretty clear he's of a conservative bent, if notably neo-con. Available for free on the yootoobs.

Anyway, very cool news. 50th anniversary. Damn.

Kaye plays in Circa which is led by Billy Sherwood who is now Howe's Yes's bassist having been hand-picked by the dying Chris Squire to replace him. So I've been hoping for this. It makes since Kaye plays in one band with a Yes dude to just go rejoin his old mates for a tour.

240 193 Liberals think they are so much smarter than the rest of us, yet they can't wrap their minds around the fact that 1860 was not yesterday. And the issues at that time were not ALL ABOUT SLAVERY.

Posted by: Case


Liberals ignore the fact that in the 1800's, it was settled science that blacks were an inferior race. Slave owners and educated people would believe that their only choice was to return slaves to their natural savage environment in West Africa (thus condemning their mortal souls to hell) or to continue taking care of them in a Christian environment in exchange for labor.

At the time, the most informed people believed that blacks were not capable of making the decisions necessary to operate in an ordered society. They thought that if they were paid for their labor, they would spend all their wages immediately and starve later.

I am going to send this to everyone I know and then persuade them to read it, top to bottom. I recommend everyone do the same.

Limbaugh nails it. The pure, unadulterated fiction of the "Russia dossier", the media piling on (as if they can wish it all true), the illegal funding for it, the Clinton/UraniumOne bribery scandals, the Podesta scandals, the Obama unmasking scandals, the domestic spying, it goes on and on.

Trump is fighting against the swamp creatures. They are fighting back, in their smarmy despicable ways. Scum like Corker and Flake, McVain and Shumer. They are fighting back, but Trump just might be bullheaded enough to win.

Events like yesterdays terror attack, which took place incidentally just two blocks from my son's apartment, scare the left. They let the piece of shit terrorist in to the country on one of their "special" visas. They gave him taxpayer money, probably. DiCommio invited terror attacks with his misfeasance in office, and he got one.

Trump is fighting our fight, as Rush so eloquently says. Thanks for that, Trump. And thanks to General Kelly, who takes it in the neck for merely stating a fact: Gen. RE Lee was an honorable man. Sheesh.

Government blocked the South from selling its cotton abroad, where it

in their economic affairs and damaging their livelihoods, and resented
the hell out of it.

Posted by: Cato the Rebel Without a Party

yesterday we spoke of the butter prices in France being kept low, so it is being sold to other countries for a better profit.

A country should control its trade, but it seems the North was controlling the south, for the benefit of the North (or certain influential men in the North at least). Today the divide is a globalist elite that want paper profits from any country, but 'free trade' that ignores others don't trade freely, are enemies, and polluters, and "slave holders" (in essence). The producer is marginalized.

Lincoln and several others at the time said the war was over that control of the South. Slavery was a populist "meme" that got thrown in, but could have been phased out over 25 years (perhaps). The driver of Lincoln was to force those state to submit to federal government.

That (from my current perspective) did much more long term harm than the massive casualties of the time. And plenty of slaves died and had hardship after the war, they didn't wander into the land of milk and honey.

265 RE: whoever noted that Ibrahim's argument that Protestants enabled Islam is bullshit - AGREED.

I cannot believe that anyone, much less Ibrahim, is going to argue that Luther was wrong to say that the Crusades were un-christian. Take the example of the 4th Crusade - Constantinople put out a call to Western Armies for help in their endless war against the Muslims, and promised gold and booty. Frankish and Venetian armies responded, but when they got to Constantinople they found out that the Byzantines were broke, so instead they simply looted, sacked and burned the Christian city of Constantinople, sent the loot home, and quit. That was it, that was the entire 4th crusade, supposing Christians murdering other Christians for loot.

THAT, and many other bad examples, was why Luther declared that the Crusades were an un-Christian and barbaric enterprise that had nothing at all to do with anything that God or Christ had ever wanted or asked for.

.Correct, that was the mindset of the Country in the 1860s. Even Abraham Lincoln thought that was true. They based their views on the actual world and what they saw and in Africa there was pretty much nothing but savagery and the complete absence of any sort of civilization.

289 "Allahu akbar" can be a declaration of joy and gratitude to Allah, as in this video, when the jihadis shout it after shooting down a helicopter, with particular vibrancy when the helicopter bursts into flames. It can also be an expression of grief and anger, as in this video, in which Syrians exclaim it as an airstrike hits their village.This video of a failed rocket launch illustrates the variety of uses.

...As the rocket begins to ignite, and then launches, only to travel a couple of feet and explode in their own compound, the watching jihadis shout "Allahu akbar" repeatedly, like characters in Orwell's 1984 book who are restricted by Newspeak to think only thoughts that can be expressed by a few permitted words.

First come the fervent "Please-make-it-work" "Allahu akbars," and then the excited "Wow-its-working!" "Allahu akbars," followed by, as the rocket fails, the resigned "Too bad" "Allahu akbars," the apologetic "We're-sorry-please-forgive-us" and the reassuring "Allah still is on our team" "Allahu akbars."


Beautiful diversity.

As with the Stamp Act. Every newspaper, every document, even cards and dice had to get the stamp.
If your newspaper did not meet with approval you could be denied the stamp, so it was in effect censorship.

Stamps had to be paid in hard currency. There were no gold or silver mines in the colonies and coins could only be obtained through trade via approved avenues. Fines for failure to get the stamps had to be paid in hard currency. It was enforced by agents, and violators were tried in court without a jury.

That is why a tax on paper was such a big deal.

310 I never could understand all the love around here for Tapper in the beginning.

He appeared to me to be another stealth liberal.

Oh he gave a good performance. Seeming to be fair and balanced and he was actually but like a new elected GOP Rep. he slowly began to reveal his true leanings which is liberal and anti-truth. So I guessed he just wanted to establish a rep for fairness so he could then slip in some lies in a way that would do the most damage.

And, like the GOP Reps., we still can't understand why, how he turned and now can't do anything about it because he's ESTABLISHED and his ratings keep him there. It takes time to remove someone through ratings just as in an election.

Got to change peoples minds, make them see we're getting the shaft and being lied to and then getting them to take steps to remove the liar from office/Anchor.

All of them are liars. Even PDT. I expect he won't get done a lot of things he said he would. But if he just whips the media back across the line they've violated and gets funding for a Wall then I'll vote for him again.

Tapper? Tappers dead to me after this Muzzie love. Just like Bush those first days after 9/11. "Religion of Peace" my ass.

It's not that it's not true. It's that he KNEW/KNOWS it's not true. There fore the only reason for the lie is to promote One World Government with the likes of the Bushes and Clintons et al in charge while the rest of us become slaves. Again.

yeah that is a problem. They have to reform AWAY FROM their book. We have to reject those (from immigration at least) that hold to their book.

Christians reformed toward individuals breaking away from a church having so much control over government ... though even the protestant kings leaned on some religious authority, in my limited understanding. America made the best constitutional break, where the individual stood before God directly, and government (higher power) was restricted from intervening there. Individual choice.

Israel is somewhat different, and some versions of Judaism's "massiach" (anointed one, not quite the same as Christianity's "messiah") ... have a reestablishment of Jerusalem as the head of a sort of global government over Jew and Gentile. But they don't seem to be in that phase, and afaik they get there by being fair and righteous, not killing off everyone that doesn't submit.

I was reading about this. It confused me a bit too. Other than accelerating revenue it seems counter intuitive to tax dollars that individuals are putting away for a future time with penalties attached for early withdrawal. Now if they took the penalties off...I might see it as a trade and some benefit.
Put after tax dollars in a retirement fund. they accrue as tax free interest (forever) and you can take it out whenever you want, no penalties.
Don't think that is the plan though.

325 Parts of History that the Left wants edited out:

Abraham Lincoln in a letter to Horace Greeley, August 22, 1862:

"I would save the Union. I would save it the shortest way under the Constitution.... If there be those who would not save the Union unless at the same time they could save slavery, I do not agree with them. If there be those who would not save the Union unless at the same time they could destroy slavery, I do not agree with them. My paramount object in this struggle is to Save the Union, and it is not either to destroy or to save slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing some, and leaving others alone, I would also do that. What I do about Slavery and the colored Race I do because I believe it helps to save this Union, and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union."

President Trump said early on Monday that his proposed tax plan would
not prompt any changes to Americans' tax-deferred retirement plans,
pushing back against reports that the Republicans are weighing a
proposal that would significantly reduce the income workers can save in
these popular programs.




Note that is "your" contributions to the program that are "tax deferred". Your employers can still contribute what they want. And you can contribute anything you want, but only $2500 of it would be deductable on income tax.

The biggest problem with the $2500 limit is that it will complicate the hell out of your taxes because only the first $2500 is tax deductible or deferred so you would have to keep track of the withdrawals of any not tax deferred.

376 The most ironic/viscious thing about the gas tax is that it is one of the most regressive taxes in use today. For low income people who have to travel to work, it takes up a large percentage of their disposable income. For even upper middle class professional workers (and especially the elites) it's impact is so small as to be negligible.

Which is why, of course the elites are always so eager to raise it. The "little people" pay it, not them.

In addition to Vic's point, I would add that nothing in the proposal affects contribution limits on Roth IRA's, which is a superior investment vehicle anyway. If you have a standard IRA you should consider switching to a Roth IRA for better after-tax returns.

Because Islam needs to be banned.


A tadpole lives in the water and has gills - but that doesn't mean it is a fish. A tadpole is the embryonic form of an amphibian.

Just because Islam has a holy book and says prayers does not mean that it is a religion in the western sense; instead it is the embryonic form of an Islamic government. Even Islamics will admit that is true. Because it seeks to over throw the government of the United States it can be banned as a subversive organization with no conflict with the First Amendment freedom of religion clause.

Because Islam needs to be banned.


What would we do if the Nazis had added an overtly religious component to Nazism? Must we refrain from discrimination against professed practicing Aztecs?

Any attempt to proscribe abhorrent dogmas will immediately be turned against Christianity.

That may be why Muslims have been enabled by the entire western elite: to make a case for total secularization and marginalization of believers. The Christians weren't producing enough bloody flags for the cosmopolitan secular Left.

Yes, as long as everyone here understands that money the Federal government takes in as taxes is destroyed as soon as the government gets it.

It does not pay for jack shit and is not a form of income to the federal government. The feds don't need your money - they fucking print all the money.

If you pay your taxes in cash they literally burn it. If you pay in the form of a check the money is subtracted from your account but the money is not added to some government treasury account - it simply disappears. It goes to the same place it came from when they printed the money in the first place; thin air.

So taxing 401Ks is not about raising income it is a vindictive dick move to penalize you for being productive and to insure you are dependent on the government dole.

Posted by: phoenixgirl...beat the dodgers at November 01, 2017 10:33 AM (0O7c5)

395 First of all Fuck you.

Secondly this is why representatives and Senators change when they get to Washington. They are briefed on how the fiat monetary system actually works.

When cash is printed it is literally created out of nothing but a paper like cloth, fibers, and ink, and declared to be "money" that is what the term "fiat" means.

The money has value only while it is in circulation in the economy. Once the government takes it back in it loses its value and becomes worthless pieces of paper like cloth and ink. It is burned because it otherwise might be stolen and become unauthorized and uncontrolled circulating currency which would have the same inflationary affect that counterfeit money has.

If the cash were not burned it would have to be stored at great expense. The serial numbers of the bills are checked and recorded before burning as a final observation to look for counterfeit; duplicate serial numbers indicate a counterfeiting problem - which is tracked down and stopped by the Secret Service. It is cheaper to burn the old cash and print new money than it is to store it - which is why it is burned.

And third Fuck You.

399 Raymond Ibrahim, in that Front Page Magazine article on how the Reformation opened the door for "a positive evaluation of Islam" is totally full of crap. Luther's big thing was that all positions were to be demonstrated through Scripture and Scripture-based reason. There is nothing in Scripture to advance anything positive about Islam: it's a false religion, largely evolved death cult, and fast becoming not only the face of but the embodiment of evil. That is in no wise Scriptural.

Ibrahim is a liar. A scummy liar
=============

Did you know that internet has Lutheran insulter? You click for an insult and something like this comes up complete with citation:

You are like the ostrich, the foolish bird which thinks it is wholly concealed when it gets its neck under a branch. Or like small children, who hold their hands in front of their eyes and seeing nobody imagine that no one sees them either. In general, you are so stupid that it makes one feel like vomiting.

From Against the Heavenly Prophets, pg. 186 of Luther's Works, Vol. 40

Insults are not argument. Sure, they might make you chuckle, but they won't change anyone's mind.
