The Morning Report 1/17/18

thisiswhy.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek has arrived and center stage is the debate on immigration and the future of our national identity as well as the disgusting and transparent diversion put up by the left in an attempt to disguise their policy of cultural destruction via open borders from being exposed for everyone to see. In that vein, we have a number of links that touch on what's at stake. Three of them lay out the evidence; a majority of the so-called DREAMer kids commit double the crimes as citizens their age, three fourths of those incarcerated on terrorism-related charges are foreign born and one of Obama's "ubermenschen" sacred visa lottery winners was asking ISIS for permission to kill him. An act of love, no doubt.

On the political front, Tom Cotton amongst others including, thankfully, President Trump are telling the Democrats to take their deal and shove it straight up their "s" holes. And the Democrats are still threatening a government shutdown over this, which plays directly into the President's hands. For the first time that I can recall, the blame will fall squarely on them for the shutdown, despite the expected Media-Propaganda wing of the party informing us otherwise. Just like they're telling us that the economy is in the tank and that Trump is in fact a racist.

That said, polls indicate that black Americans ain't buying the Trump is a racist lie. They are probably witnessing and experiencing an employment boom and, as I linked yesterday, it is scaring the living daylights out of the Left. They know that if they lose a percentage of that voting bloc, it would be disastrous for them. And that is one of the key reasons they want open borders; to import a mass of voters to replace they ones whom they have aborted, imprisoned or destroyed through their compassionate programs like the Great Society. Their political power depends upon poverty and disenfranchisement, whether naturally occurring or as evidenced by the past 50 years pre-manufactured. I think we are potentially on the cusp of a great black American awakening to this. And were that the case, there would be no stronger ally we can have in the sealing of our borders and the road back to the resurrection of our society, please G-d.

The boss had a post yesterday on the puerile, amateurish display of Cory Booker. It really did border on if not cross the line into straight-up abuse of DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen, who was poised, professional, confident and made Dick Les "Dicky" Durbin look like a fool, or that is to say, highlighted his foolishness. And what the hell is with Pat Leahy? His marble-mouthed muttering makes Thad Cochran come across as Lord Olivier. That said, every word pushed out between his halitosis-tinged dentures sounded like it was written out for him, and ages ago from the typical Democrat talking point play book. They have nothing. The Trump agenda, even without a real party behind him, is blowing them out of the water and the meme of mass immigration is good for the nation is being exploded. Keep f**king that chicken, Dems.

From hither and yon, Fake Flake's Stalin insult aimed at Trump blew up in his face, Pencil Neck Schiff can no longer hold back the full release of Fusion GPS's head's testimony, the DoJ is going straight to SCOTUS to appeal the lower court's power grab in ordering PDT to continue DACA and lastly a great essay about why the Left will always be with us. I've touched on this many times before but as the late Momma Sefton always said, it boils down to this: "Evil never rests."

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

UPDATE: Please keep commenter Northernlurker in your prayers. He has just informed us that his wife passed away as this thread posted. Our deepest sympathy and condolences to you and family.

18 A Golden Scalp Weasel - The Saga Rolls on:

Trump sits in the oval office, receiving a briefing.
"Your medical report was astounding sir, and the doctor delivering it was impeccable," GorillaPundit states.
"That admiral is good, great fellow, one of the best."
"Unfortunately, several members of the press corps started foaming at the mouth in frustration and had to be committed."
*************
"Hi everybody!"
"GRRRRRRRRR! Hi, Dr. Nick! GRRRRRRRRR!" the reporters howl and growl.
"You all have Lupus Kadupos! The cure is trepanning!" He starts a chain saw. "Now, hold still."
*************************
"Anything else?"
"Senator Flake is denouncing you to the senate as the second coming of Stalin."
"Not Hitler?"
"No, Stalin. He is giving his speech in the form of a musical."
"Musical theater? I always wondered about that guy."
"He seems to have cribbed it from 'Jesus Christ, Superstar' and Andrew Lloyd Webber is very upset. He's threatening "the most fabulous invasion you renegade colonial lackeys have ever seen" if Flake doesn't cease."
"What can we do about it?"
"I have a battalion of critics drawn up in Times Square ready to advance on Broadway if he makes a move."
"Good, if that ponce knows what's good for him he'll back off and go back to his harpsichord bigly."
"Let's see - Hawaiian Civil Defense has reactivated."
"What? Has Fat Boy One launched another missile?"
"No it seems they are claiming its an alien invasion. Here - they're livestreaming it."

The viewscreen shows men in flowered shirts and white helmets running around screaming "They're coming! Oh God! Where are the keys to the battleship!" as the Missouri floats across the harbor. One faces the camera yelling "We're all gonna get probed! Probed!" before the screen cuts out.
"You know, I'm not even sure where to begin with that one and I've seen a lot of weirdness - I was in NYC in the 1970's."
"Yes sir, I imagine much of that was very disturbing. That's the briefing for today."
"Alright, I think I'll just check in on the news."

He turns the tv on.
"Hi, this is the Situation Room, I'm Brad and this Caitlin, Mr. Blitzer is still sick."
"He's getting electro-shock therapy in the green room!" Caitlin adds as the lights dim and come back up.
"Tonight's news is on the DACA negotiations. Senator Durbin said that Donald Trump called all non-Americans a bunch of *#^*$*. Senator Schumer decried the administration's plans to deport all illegals via trebuchet, calling medieval siege weapons "inherently sexist and racist, and likely bad for the planet."
And in entertainment news we have...Caitlin, you're up."
"Just a minute, this is important," she says as she texts away.
"What is? We're on the air."
"My proposal for 'Kung-Fu Cheerleaders' with me and Mandy, it'll be awesome."
"You can't be a kung-fu cheerleader."
"Oh? Why so?"
"For instance you'd need to use a patio umbrella as a skirt."
Caitlin's face falls and she yells out "You're a jerk!" before running off the set. A note is handed to Brad who reads it.
"Caitlin! Come back! I'm sorry! We need you here because I got to go to HR now and be reeducated!" Brad looks about and points offstage "Hey buddy, come here! I got to go so just sit here and read the stuff on the screen."
Brad leaves and an Ewok sits down. "Jub-jub, jub-jub-jub. Jub." The Ewok shakes a golden hobo cull. "Jub-jub-jub-jub!"

Trump nods "I think I recognize that guy," before concentrating on the screen. "This is better than the Gorilla Channel."

32 From that link about the 'Trump Storm'.


The United States has welcomed immigrants from various shithole
countries for much of its history. Those schleppers worked, sweated, and
saved, started businesses, paid taxes, and asked God to bless America.




That may have been true 150 years ago before welfare but it is not now. almost all of the current crowd of 'refugees' go immediately on welfare and never go off.

46 A few days ago a post was up on Mike Rowe and someone who watches How the Universe Works wants Rowe fired because Rowe is not 100 percent onboard with global warming.
Rowe had some good answers and why he is questioning the "science" behind the GW.
I watched the episode he referenced on how just recently he went in to record his voice over on a previously recorded show due to some new info that had come out.
I had just watched this episode, and whereas I still do not understand black holes, one of the scientists on the show said he has doubts of the existence because the math doesn't work out.

Then he said... But I'd rather have questions without answers, then answers without questions...

I thought that was a great way to put the reasons why our betters tell us to Shut Up you Depolorables...

135 >>>Group Threatening to Burn "Activist Mommy" Alive Evidently Doesn't Violate Fakebook Standards

Two odd things struck me about the FB's form letter type response to the complaint:

"We looked over the group your reported, and while it doesn't go against one of our specific community standards, we understand that the group or something shared in it may still be offensive to you and others.

...

If you want us to look at something specific in this or another group, you can report the exact context (ex: photo) instead of the entire group"



As to the first, duh. If there are multiple standards that can be violated, I imagine for any violation (in this case harassment) it's always possible to find at least one standard it didn't violate. Maybe they meant "any"? Maybe English is not the author's first language?

The other odd thing is that in this case, the group is the "exact context" given that the name of the group is "I will find Activist Mommy and burn whoever runs it alive".

We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world immigration by the hundred million with chain migration. They tell us we must end America as a white, Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation -- to prove we are not racist. I don't need to prove a thing. Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America. They want to destroy America as we know it.

As President Trump asked, why would we do that?

We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in. I was happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor Senegalese. I am not willing to donate my country.

That AT piece certainly explains what we see coming out of Europe - the masses of Africans breaching the borders, robbing the locals blind, rioting with demands for better handouts - faster wifi, nicer clothes, ceramic teeth, whatever.

Marcus Luttrell's "Lone Survivor" starts with a similar description of Afghan culture - that there is a hierarchy of value: immediate family first, then extended family, then your village, then your tribe. Most of their decisions and behaviors are understood through this value system.

190 "This Is why You Got Trump"

I've been thinking about that on the one-year mark. A couple of uuuge factors: Same-sex "marriage" and the Iran Deal.

Not just because of the issues themselves, but what they signify.

SSM meant Everything Is Up For Grabs. Not just marriage, but tradition, the Rule of Law, everything. If one judge can overturn a thousand years of marriage law without even consulting society, there's really nothing they think they can't do to us. That's why there wasn't even a pause before they moved on to transgender issues, including the taxpayer-funded sexual mutilation of children who cannot give consent.

The other is the Pre-Emptive Unconditional Surrender to the Ayatollah. That showed that Democrats have decided to surrender America to Islam and that gutless Republicans wouldn't lift a finger to stop it.

That's How.

Posted by: t-bird at January 17, 2018 08:18 AM (cW490)


That's why the Transnational Socialists purposefully conflate collectivism with charity. Charity is recognizing a personal duty of relieve the suffering of others at some personal cost. However, an obligation to give something of yours to another in which the recipient feels entitled is slavery.

That is why collectivism is immoral and its proponents cloud the issue. Collectivism robs the productive of the fruits of their labor, creates dependency/infantilism in others and requires a ruling class to redistribute wealth (while skimming their vig).

Oh...wait...I was laughing like a hyena on nitrous oxide.

Someone edited out all the women in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" to make a 48 minute mini-movie.

Obviously, this was a prank as well as someone showing off their editing chops. And it's clear that it was done as a joke, a jape, a lark, from the Heinous Editor of Patriarchal Apocalypse but-

Nope. Time for the snowflakes to get their outrage on.

One particularly goofy snowflake named Prissy Page, I think, was getting all wound up cuz-

Ugly Racial Stereotype Asian Woman was the "beat heart" of The Last Jedi....becuz TLJ was a movie about failure.

Now, that I think about it TLJ was a movie about failure.

Lots and lots of failure.

A tremendous amount of fail as it were.

So, in the spirit of bipartisanship I hereby raise Prissy from snowflake to the exalted rank of Snowball.

2. Sick children epidemic is result of horse and buggy people not vaccinating their children, bringing down our healthcare system.
3. Good Priest Bad Cop syndrome. Good Priest hide murders and thugs from Bad Cops.
4. Gated community of law abiding, taxpaying citizens fighting for better schools, police, garbage pickup leads to single mom on the streets.

280 "Socialism. It speaks to the best in us, but always produces the worst in us. " Posted by: t-bird

that is poignant and brief, which is always useful.

as RBC pointed out (and I'm sure you know) ... charity is individual choice, not gov theft.

But the short version I think is wrong, except when the "us" is only seen as "the collective as one body". Good people that attain power can be bent toward corruption/abuse. But mostly bad people seek high office already holding bad intent. Bad donors seek out malleable bad people and propel them to be their puppet.

Christianity does speak of one body with one head (JC), but every individual has direct access, and it is all free will. Our country is unique in recognizing such individual liberty above our state powers.

On the civic level that recognition of liberty is what binds us as the "American Tribe". Socialists are intent on killing that by every means necessary. They are not US as their loyalty is to globalist control, making them seditious traitors when they are in power.

301 Fear is rising among Democrats over the prospect that President Donald
Trump's hard line on immigration might ultimately cost California a seat
in Congress during the upcoming round of reapportionment.

Top Democrats here are increasingly worried the administration's
restrictive policies --- and the potential inclusion of a question about
citizenship on the next U.S. census --- could scare whole swaths of
California's large immigrant population away from participating in the
decennial count, resulting in an undercount that could cost the state
billions of dollars in federal funding over the next decade and,
perhaps, the loss of one of its 53 seats in the U.S. House of
Representatives.

-casseroles
-someone to man your phones and call relatives, friends, social security (to retire her number), your church or synagogue, and any credit cards she held in her own name.
-someone trustworthy to drive you where you need to go and go with you to appointments, especially the funeral director.

Even if you don't feel like lit, you need to eat, you need to sleep, and you need to be around loving, trustworthy people.

There's a powerful book and helped me through my grief when my husband died and I recommend it: "the Year of Magical thinking" by Joan Didion.

Prayers up.

318 The problem with wanting to "exterminate" the left is a subtle one, in that it could only be done definitively by the use of force. BUT that very use of force would enshrine the evil itself in the victorious side, which would then continue to use that force to entrench itself. As Acton said "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

When considering this, it's useful to consider events like Cromwell's takeover - everyone in that movement sincerely believed that they were curing the great abuses in their society that a corrupt nobility had taken for granted for centuries - BUT the solution turned out to be far worse. Same thing happened in the French revolution; the Aristo's deserved to be overthrown, but the replacement was infinitely worse. On and on and on the examples go - the only way to effectively and sustainably change a society is to disavow the use of government and the use of force while doing it. And that is a very hard thing to do, but that's what men such as Augustine and Benedict have pondered over the centuries.

334 So, yesterday after my son came from from school he had some time before he went back to Track and Field practice. As her got ready to go he smiled and said, "Well, it's back to the left wing indoctrination center." (He probably said that because I sometimes say it to him) My response: "Well, I don't think you're going to get much indoctrination in track and field. You just have to run your backside off."

]i]Arturo Vargas, executive director of the National Association of Latino
Elected and Appointed Officials, said California has more at stake in an
undercount than other states because "any undercount of Latinos, any
undercount of immigrants, is going to hit California harder than
Nebraska, or some other state with a low population of Latinos and
immigrants."

from participating in the decennial count, resulting in an undercount
that could cost the state billions of dollars in federal funding over
the next decade and,

perhaps, the loss of one of its 53 seats in the U.S. House of

367 ) My response: "Well, I don't think you're going to get much indoctrination in track and field. You just have to run your backside off."


That's actually a good indoctrination. I will overshare here.

My mother wondered why I wasted time on track when I wasn't getting the grades I should have. Well, I was never going to get the grades because I tested at the top of all the ranges of aptitude but they didn't test for oppositionally defiant and there was no way I was ever going to do their dance. School came easy and I got good enough grades just by showing up and being awake.

Track was hard. Cross country was real. If you ran five miles that way you had to run five miles back to get home. There wasn't a short bus, there wasn't help, there wasn't a lifeline. Track was where I learned that effort counts. Talent counts, too. There were guys I could never beat no matter how hard I trained because those were the guys I couldn't beat. That happens.

All of this is to say that I approve of FenelonSon's track efforts.

I told her not to get so caught up in what religion they were as that's not the story - the child abuse is. I then asked her if she thought THE NEWS would have told her what religion they were had they been, oh, say, Muslims. She agreed that it wouldn't have been stated.

yeah, thx for that. Our founders separated church and state to keep such lofty dreamers from attaining state control. Socialism is really just a state religion, forcing even absurd dreamy ideals into law. (open borders, "rights" to housing/food/education/jobs, racist quotas, etc.)

And now they even intend to displace Christianity's voice in the public square, making it illegals as their PC religion is made law. The civics of the founders is not taught, Marxism is taught. This was enemy action, not an idle drift.

He said about a week ago, "Why do I have to do Track?" I said "Because you signed up for it and dad and I say so. It's a good discipline; It helps with depression. It gets you out with other kids."

When considering this, it's useful to consider events like
Cromwell's takeover - everyone in that movement sincerely believed that
they were curing the great abuses in their society that a corrupt
nobility had taken for granted for centuries - BUT the solution turned
out to be far worse.


There are people who sensing the winds of change take the opportunity to brew up a storm.

If you are bailing out a boat you will necessarily rock it some - there are people who will rock the boat in rhythm with you. Their purpose is not to bail the boat out but to use your bailing as an excuse to rock the boat.

Just because somebody gets behind you in your cause does not mean they are pushing the same way you are - often they are there to stab you in the back.

In other words you have to watch your allies harder than you watch your enemies.

You would think people would have learned these things by watching the RNCe over the years.
