The Morning Report 4/13/18

lest.jpg

Good morning kids. The weekend is here and what a week it's been. Isn't it strange that I seem to start off this column every Friday morning with those exact same words? In any case the big story remains the absolutely disgusting display of Robert Mueller, Rod Rosensteinpenis and soon-to-be-a-major-motion-picture James Comey. The big question is will the President fire the former two. As I have stated, I think it's a mistake despite being 100% justified after all we have seen lo these past 16 months. I think and hope this is what PDT will do. The more Mueller goes after more unrelated and trivial things from the President's past with which to try and take him down, and the more he does so with the Gestapo-like tactics he displayed with the midnight raid on Manafort's home and the engineering of the SDNY prosecutors to do his dirty work by raiding Michael Cohen's office, the more he looks like the petty thug that he is. For what it's worth, a recent poll (I forgot by whom) showed a majority of Americans believe Mueller is a petty thug.

And speaking of giant tits, Stormy Daniels' alleged hush money is not an in-kind campaign contribution according to the former chairman of the Federal Elections Commission. Meanwhile, Rich Lowery writing in the NY Post had this to say about Mueller and special prosecutors:

"...In his famous dissent in the Supreme Court case of Morrison v. Olson upholding the independent-counsel law in 1988, Antonin Scalia wrote, "Nothing is so politically effective as the ability to charge that one's opponent and his associates are not merely wrongheaded, naive, ineffective, but, in all probability, 'crooks.' And nothing so effectively gives an appearance of validity to such charges as a Justice Department investigation and, even better, prosecution."

Scalia relied heavily on a speech from FDR's attorney general, Robert Jackson. The future Supreme Court justice warned against prosecutors picking a person, not a crime, to investigate.

It's still worth quoting Jackson at length: "In such a case, it is not a question of discovering the commission of a crime and then looking for the man who has committed it, it is a question of picking the man and then searching the law books, or putting investigators to work, to pin some offense on him. It is in this realm" - the ability to pick and choose targets - "that the greatest danger of abuse of prosecuting power lies..."

Lowery's cuck-servative pedigree as an acolyte of Kristol Blue Persuasion is naturally on display in the balance of his piece, but the pull quote still has cromulence to the situation.

On the political front, with the theatrics of Paul Ryno's departure as Speaker of the House (naturally delayed until next January because that's the kind of guy he is - a Chamber of Cucks stooge) the question of who will replace him comes into focus. Yes, the usual gang of traitors, flunkies and sellouts are logically next in line, including Eric Cantor sock-puppet Kevin McCarthy. That said, there is talk that Jim Jordan might be a dark horse candidate. I'm sure that won't be permitted to happen but it's nice to dream.

Mike Pompeo, who was already confirmed by the Senate in his previous role as head of the CIA was subject to the typical pornographic showboating and camera-hogging (heh) by the Democrats who attempted to smear him. The most risible comes from Cory Booker, the bald-headed stooge/goniff from New Jersey who bellowed at Pompeo - three times - does he think homosexuality is a perversion? Aside from the fact that Pompeo stood his ground masterfully, one wonders if Booker wanted to follow up with "what are you doing after the hearing, big guy?" Overcompensate we much? Meh. Poor man's Obama, and that's not saying a whole lot.

Meanwhile, as Mick Mulvaney - the anti-Cory Booker in every way, shape and form - beat the rhetorical crap out of both Max-Ob-Scene-Dirty Waters and Fauxcahontas about the CFPB, we are finding out that former head and socialist stooge Richard Cordray's handpicked successor, who has been successfully ousted but still persists at pretending to run the joint, spends her days on full government pay working, not to protect the finances of consumers but on her lawsuit against the President. By everything good, just and fair in this world this slag should've been given the heave-ho ages ago. Oh well, here's hoping Mulvaney is wrecking the place end to end, brick by brick.

And across town, Ajit Pai at the FCC told the Dems attempting to persecute Sinclair Broadcasting to go pound sand; they will not be "investigated" for exercising their free speech rights. Unlike the conservative law professor who attempted to give a lecture at CUNY here in DeBolshevik town, where the brownshirted Krylon hair brigades attempted to shout him down, but I digress.

Domestically, Tennessee has voted to defund Planned Parenthood and the President has announced a commission to investigate the US Postal Service in the wake of his recent confrontation with Amazon. California sinks further into the abyss with new laws set to completely hamstring police and a look at San Francisco's homeless crisis that perfectly encapsulates the failure of socialism writ large. And despite the staggering fraud reported with Medicaid the GOP is finally introducing a "Balanced Budget Amendment." "Balanced" having the same meaning as "Affordable Care" - the thing is an absolute lie wrapped in a fraud inside of a felony. Read it and weep. Or grab the tar and feathers.

Shifting to foreign policy, the President is huddling with his national security team to discuss what the response will be to the chemical weapons attack in Syria. There is a lot at stake here and it does require a response. I have faith that with minds like Bolton, Pompeo and Haspel, PDT is in good hands. Shifting gears, the President has alarmed conservatives and the base of his seeming backtrack on the Trans Pacific Partnership, but his qualifying statement about it makes me think it's dead in the water. We've seen this before with DACA and gun control so I'm not worried.

Lastly, yesterday was Holocaust Remembrance Day, and in Israel, the entire nation paused for two minutes of silent prayer to remember the over six million Jews murdered at the hands of the Germans and their collaborators. Just like our World War Two veterans, the last of the survivors are in their late 80s/early 90s and passing into history. And yesterday, I read that a shocking percentage of young people in this country have no idea what the word "Auschwitz" means. Considering what we are experiencing here in this country, and what is going on in Europe, we forsake the memory of the victims and those who fought and died for their freedom at our peril. Special thanks to the guys of the 11th Armored Division who liberated my family.

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

31 More Noos; today is Friday, April 13, 2018. Yes, Friday the 13th so don't take any chances today. On this day in 1976 the Treasury reintroduced the two-dollar bill and BION it is still in service. You just never see them because the merchants hate them as the standard cash register has no slot for them. The treasury should replace the one dollar bill with a coin and eliminate the 1 dollar bill.

33 From the muslim jizya link, regarding murdering Christian soldiers:
--------------


Most recently, on March 14, Matthew Samir Habib, a 22-year-old Coptic Christian in Egypt's military was killed by his Muslim counterparts - simply for being Christian. He is merely the latest of about nine Christian soldiers to be killed in recent months and years by Muslim soldiers on account of their faith.

And in virtually every case, a similar pattern follows: despite all the evidence otherwise (such as physical bruises all over the bodies of the slain), military officials insist that - due to some sudden and inexplicable bout of depression - all these Christians supposedly committed 'suicide'. Meanwhile the dead Christian soldiers' families and those closest to them insist their slain sons and brothers were happy and healthy, that they were observant Christians, and that there was evidence that they were being persecuted by their Muslim 'brothers-in-arms' for their evident Christianity.

For example, in this latest case from March 14, the murdered Copt was shot twice-and still authorities maintain it was suicide.
-------------------


Unbelievable.

My dad is first generation American and, bless him, despite being Jewish and marrying a survivor was still, to be charitable, kind of uninformed about the magnitude of what happened during the war.

Anyway, my mother took him to Vienna to sort of revisit her time there doing forced labor and then went on to Auschwitz (for whatever reason, she could not bear the thought of going back to Mauthausen where she was imprisoned, but Auschwitz she could handle [go figure]).

So the two of them get there and my dad broke down in such uncontrollable sobs, she thought he was going to have a heart attack.

That said, on a trip to Amsterdam, my mother climbed the first few steps into Anne Frank's hiding place and immediately retreated. Almost had a breakdown.

Phil Scott would be a democrat in most any other state. A significant number of the people here, and the ones with the loudest mouths, are full on moonbats. The Republicans are basically what mainstream Democrats used to be. Governor Douglas (R) was state treasurer for many years before he made the run for governor, and in most, if not all, of those runs he was the candidate on both the Democrat and Republican lines. One of his jokes in the gubernatorial election was that he had been elected to office more times as a Democrat then his Democrat opponent was. Republicans pick up a lot of votes from people who register Democrat but are not full on moonbats.

As far as guns go not a real day to day issue except for the moonbats who won't stop flapping their gums. Hunting used to be very big here, but that has really fallen by the wayside as more and more aging hippies make their way here. Used to be project schedules would be arranged around hunting season. I've not seen that to be an issue in 10 years or so. In fact we are now being overrun with both aging hippies and deer.

If your son or you for that matter can handle it, I highly recommend watching the documentary "Holocaust by Bullets."

We tend to look at Auschwitz as a symbol of the horror, but fully 1.5 million people or a fourth of the victims were shot, one by one, into mass graves all over what was known as the Pale of Settlement (Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Baltic states and western Russia).

A French Catholic priest has spent almost 20 years trying to locate the murder sites and interview as many witnesses who may still be alive. Most of these places were covered over and inaccessible during the Soviet era, but since the fall of the USSR there is a rush to find these places before people die off and time runs out.

201 Why do young people not know? High school history no longer teaches this? Shocking indeed!
____________________

When I was in junior high (in Virginia), the history teacher did a week on the holocaust (including showing the videos from the death camps), and at the end of the week she brought in an elderly couple who were Auschwitz survivors. They showed us their number-ID tattoos and told us how their family members died, and how they were tortured and starved and barely alive when the camp was finally liberated.

I can't imagine that being approved in any Virginia public school today. Some snowflake would moan about being "triggered" by all the images of violence or some muzzie would claim it was islamophobic or some shit, and the school board would shut it down -- "for the children!!!"

If you know or can find testimony of veterans who liberated the camps, almost to a man these GIs were absolutely horrified by what they saw. And they had already lived through nearly a year since D-Day of seeing their friends killed and maimed in the most violent, brutal ways imaginable and fearing they'd be next.

And if any doubted why they were fighting, what they saw when they opened the gates made things crystal clear.

230 For those who didn't see my post last night: I physically took my complaints about 'gun control' being a violation of federal civil rights statutes to the FBI office locally. It went about as well as I could have hoped. I got an actual G man instead of an Obamanite to give the complaint - which is about 4 single spaced typed pages long - to. (Now there is a REAL dangling participle). As he read it he was nodding in agreement, and in several places I could see him modify his nods as if to say "Oh I hadn't thought about that - good point". He said they had received several complaints, but that mostly they were just emotional screeds, that mine was by far the best researched, and that I had done much of the FBI's work for them. He said he would be happy to pass my complaints on to the prosecutors, and cautioned that would be the sticky point. He gave me some excellent advice on how to get some political oil applied underneath the prosecutor's feet to get them moving on the case.

I complained about 3 cases. The 4 page complaint had charges about a rich, arrogant ass, politician who has been sticking his nose into gun control all over the country. It pointed out that there are possible death penalty charges in his case.

248 My onetime roommate's father was at Auschwitz. He lost his whole family there. In the 80's he went to a reunion of Holocaust survivors in NYC and two men, one who had been in the bunk above him and the other who had been in the bunk below, were there. What are the odds that all three would not only survive, but attend a reunion in NYC 40 years later? My roommate said that event opened the dam - he had never spoken of his experiences up until then. My roommates mother had been hidden by gentiles but lost her family as well. My friend said the topic was not spoken of when she was little - but sometimes when she got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, she would hear her mom crying in the kitchen - and she knew why. That - and their hatred of seeing food wasted - were the 2 reminders of the Holocaust when she was a kid.

One thing she said stuck me: she said "I have no idea if I look like my grandparents or an aunt - because I have no pictures of them. No mementos. No grandparents, no aunts, no uncles and nothing to remember them by - not even a letter or a ring or a cheap little tchotchke."

Me: Runs to check to see if it's true, aghast and perplexed at how this could have happened because I can't stand him for all the reasons this smart, military blog has covered. I really can't figure out why, the only thing I can think of is from the early days of Twitter and perhaps he followed everyone from NJ? (born and bred, luckily retreated to PA last year). I wait a few days, decide not to tell her how I REALLY feel about him and make some comment about following people from NJ back?

I'm reminded of a time when my sister had friends who would hob-nob with the dude at parties as he was some kind of up and coming star. Honestly, it shocks me to see him act like such a dufus when I was told he was some kind of rising star.

Also that cultural suicide mentality afflicts Europeans who fought against the Nazis (the Brits).

Wow.
A neighbor of ours had fled Germany as a child with her family right before things went bad. They had been transferring money to Switzerland during vacations for several years before as a precaution. Apparently her father's close friend was in construction and when he got a contract to build a concentration camp he told the family to GO NOW.

Here's how we learned this. Our neighbor and my mom were friends, and the neighbor suggested they take a B and W photography class together to learn how to develop pictures. One day when they're doing open lab she shows my mom pictures of her family she's developing and tells her the story of her fleeing Germany as a child. Her mother, in preparation for this, had sewn the negatives of family photos into all of their coats. When they fled, they just walked out the door with only the coats on their backs. And that day in the photo lab was the first time she had seen the photos in decades.

We need to do more to counter the big lie that German National Socialism was a product of the right. Hitler considered himself a better Socialist than Stalin (his speeches attest to it), and the related slur that the nationalism was at fault and is inherently evil.

As you said, drugs and alcohol abuse were the main drivers but they had options to get treatment and a place to live but they all refused because of the "rules" that came along with those programs. They didn't want to have other people making decisions for them.

On the one hand, maybe some of those folks know (if vaguely) about the Holocaust and just don't know the specific camp names. Maybe like that LP candidate on "a leppo" they just mis-heard?

On the other hand, ignorance is what they're taught nowadays, and these would be the same people who can't tell you that there are three branches of government, much less what they are or how they are supposed to work, nor could name the Vice-President, nor tell who their Senators are nor how long they serve.

On the third hand, by gaw, they're sure they know what's best for us. And we let them vote.

312 While I think the Germans should remember and be taught about the Holocaust (and the Germans have done much better than the Japanese in that respect) I don't think having Germans born after the war flagellate themselves endlessly does much good. Young Germans hating themselves because of what their grandfathers did doesn't bring back one Jew or punish the people who actually committed the murders. And I'm not real big on blaming people for wrongs they didn't commit - its a distortion of history. Germans committed a huge crime, but they also produced Bach and Durer and Gutenberg. It's like SJWs insisting that we feel endlessly guilty about slavery.

Also, it promotes the dangerous idea that Germans are "different" and morally deficient in ways that others could never be. As we now know, there are people born and raised in the US who would act no differently than any SS guard if it weren't for that pesky Constitution.

359 If interfering with other citizens' constitutional rights is a federal
offense potentially punishable by death, could that law not also be
invoked against people who interfere with the constitutional "right" to
abortion or gay marriage? IOW do we really want to go there because it
could backfire big time when the leftists get back in control (if they
haven't already). Am I missing something here?

18 USC 242 is about government officials using the color of law to take away people's rights. It was passed to destroy the ability to enforce Jim Crow laws. It would prevent local officials enforcing local laws against the 'right' to abortion or gay marriage.

18 USC 241 is the one aimed at individuals, and yes it would be an illegal conspiracy to discuss how to oppress the rights of somebody to an abortion or to a gay marriage. In other words if you tried to put an extra tax on a gay married couple, or talked about some sort of legal penalty for getting an abortion.

"The differences lie in the fact that the Holocaust, to my knowledge, is the only genocide we know of where every single individual of the targeted group was destined to be killed for the crime for having been born. There has never been such a thing in human history. Every single individual: not just in Germany, Poland, France, Soviet Union, but anywhere in the world. So, it's the totality and the globality of the Holocaust, and then the ideology. Every other mass murder or genocide always has a pragmatic ideology behind it. Eliminate a group because they are in our way to create a wonderful new world, a wonderful new empire, a terrific culture.."

Look these are laws - on the books. Like all laws they are potential double edged swords. If we don't use them the best case scenario is they will lie fallow. The worst case scenario is that they will be used against us regardless. We have nothing to lose by OBEYING the frigging law - or by enforcing it. It is always to our detriment to have important laws lie fallow - we're the law abiding party.

On a more practical note, just think of all the fine whiskey that could be made from all that corn that is just going to be burnt? What about the animal feed? Part of the reason food has gotten more expensive is the stupid ethanol mandate driving up the price of corn, which is animal food. Burning food is not a viable policy.

One quibble with that: the Germans did think they were on their way to creating a wonderful new empire: a 1000 year Reich ruled by Germans, with the Jews and Slavs dead or working as slaves. The Nazi hatred of Jews was cultural as much as genetic: they thought Jews - including Jesus and St. Paul all the way up to the clever Berlin Jews of the Wiemar Republic - had poisoned Western civilization and killing them would restore the purity of pagan Germanic culture.
All mass killings of specific groups (with the exception of Genghis Khan's savages who had no higher ambitions than looting and raping and holding power) have been based on some sort of ideology aimed at "improving" the world. The dedicated Nazis were idealists. Their ideals were twisted and perverted.

Isn't the issue really: I, James Comey told him it's absolutely not true. . . because we investigated it.

Not having said that, isn't Comey basically admitting we didn't investigate it. And as such, admitting that it was still used in the FISA application, therefore making the FISA application false?

Yeah, it's a huge mistake to attribute genocides to ignorant bigotry. Like most evil things, they are the direct result of insane utopianism. It's why, although they are hilarious to watch, no one should dismiss the gestating Red Guards we know as "Social Justice Warriors." They easily could conduct mass murder to, in their minds, improve the world. In fact, they would if given half the chance.
