The Morning Report - 2/12/19

iapolo.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday and really no new developments in the Virginia Democrat leadership scandals other than to say that the media has engineered its Jimmy Swaggart apologia for Governor "Coonman" Northam while AG Mark Herring's being Jolson-curious in his youth has dropped totally off the radar. That said, the only action is staffers for Lt. Governor "Poonman" Fairfax are jumping ship in anticipation of his being given the chop. Also, but not linked, the second woman to accuse him of sexual assault has also accused an NBA player of rape while he was plying for Duke U. And lest we forget that all of this got started because of the Governor supporting to the hilt state sanctioned infanticide. Disgusting.

Next up we have the continuing flap over Democrat Rep Ilhan "Bro-Fo" Omar's vile, unreconstructed anti-Semitic statements and her even more disastrous non-apology apology that even the Democrats could not provide cover for. But not to fear because Linda Sarsour, the Hamas Louse, naturally has rushed to her defense as well as noted humanitarian David Duke. Yeah, that David Duke who is always trotted out as a Republican whenever racial arson (rhymes with Rachel Carson) is required to muddle an issue and paint conservatives as Klansmen. There are calls for her to be removed from her position on the House Foreign Relations Committee an given her, to be charitable, antipathy to the State of Israel which goes hand in hand with antipathy to the United States, her access to sensitive documents is insane. That said, no way Palsi Pelosi removes her. A) woman, and a Muslim one at that, B) the Maoist wing of the party would go apeshit, and C) as one of the links states, don't be fooled by the official Democrat line of condemnation. They are fully on board the anti-Israel train. Meanwhile, it's come to light that surprise-surprise! her fellow travel Rancida T-Labia once wrote a column(s) for the Nation of Islam's house organ. Other than that, we have by comparison a yawner of a story involving a Sanders and Breakfast Club Evita ally in Kansas being arrested yet again for driving without a license. Imagine the banner headline for weeks had he been a Republican.

And then there's Border Security and Immigration. With the prospect of another government shutdown looming on Friday IIRC, it looks as if a bipartisan (yay!) deal has been struck that keeps the government open and secures the border. Wait, did I say "secures the border?" I mean to say fist-f**ks America in the ass all the way up to the elbow. What I think the President will do, that is should do, is take the deal, shift money as he is allowed to do from what I understand from the DoD and declare a national emergency, the courts be damned though damn him they will try mightily to do. In any case, his approval number is at 52% after the SOTU, the Green 5-Year Plan and most tellingly after the last shutdown. And while you're at it, Mr. President, if Hawaiian Judges Buch M. Danno and Tyne E. Bubbles order you to stop, tell them to screw. It is way past time to cut the damn rogue judiciary down to size.

Elsewhere, Gavin Newsom and this New Mexico Grisham dame are all but inviting the invasion, ICE has warned of an army of criminals will hit us if the Dems get their way and at his El Paso rally, the President firmly proclaimed ICE will never be abolished. More on that in a bit.

Circling back, yes as the Virginia scandal settles down survivors of abortion who lived and grew up to tell the tale stand by the unborn and now the newborn to oppose state sanctioned infanticide and a call for a law to deliver alive babies slated for execution upon delivery.

Civil War 2.0: Is it surprising that this "Antifa" cancer who allegedly took part in assaulting two Marines is a go-to Democrat activist? Not to me.

Politics: Yes, OrangeManBad held a huge rally in El Paso as did "Irish" O'Rourke, whom the President mocked as only he could as well as delivering juicy red meat to the adoring throngs of supporters. And check out what dreamy Bobby was doing in high school. Just beautiful, man Also, Kamala-Toe was all in favor of ICE cracking down on illegal juvies but that was back in 2008 which is like hundreds of years ago on the Tommy Vietor scale of time measurement, turns out that voter IDS don't prevent people from voting (except corpses and foreigners), a few essays examining the disastrous Democrat field for 2020, what the Howard Schultz candidacy reveals about the Left, and Rabbi Fischer ponders the what-if of Trump knowing what he was dealing with when he was sworn in.

First Amendment, Fake News and Censorship: Hidden camera reveals the true nature of a BBC reporter, Twitter's Jack Dorsey now openly endorsing bias and censorship, and the WaPo fact-checker runs interference for Donkey Chompers Cortez by ripping Trump.

Guns: Steve Scalise gets Nadler-ed.

Foreign Desk: UN Secretary General naturally slaps us in the face and meets with thug Maduro, Richard Fernandez on what's to be done in Venezuela, Trump rips Iran on its 40th anniversary and also the utter failure of its Democrat-Leftist education system, we need to get the hell out of Syria and Afghanistan and two interesting essays on Germany and the German psyche in light of internal and external affairs.

Defense and Intel: A Chinese national is going to prison for spying on a sensitive American communications facility, and a critical look at our military preparedness or lack thereof vis a vis recent doings in Africa.

Domestic Affairs: It figures that an anti-American theater in San Francisco gets federal funding and a look at how Trump is winning the fight slowly but surely to reshape the Obama-era judiciary.

Crime Blotter: Jussie Smollet will release heavily redacted phone records to underscore the hoax he likely perpetrated and Daniel Greenfield on the ADL now outdoing the SPLC as frauds and Leftist shills when it comes to so-called "hate crimes."

Economic News: IBD on the upcoming US-China trade talks as BFD.

Healthcare: Will there really be an ObamaCare death spiral now that the individual mandate is gone?

Education: Now, Denver's teachers are out on strike.

Red-Greens: Trump likens the Green New Deal to a high school term paper. I think that that is way too charitable. Also, the notion of "justice" has nothing to do with that madness, like every other time that word is used in a Leftist policy.

Hither and Yon: Hungary wants more Magyars and has an offer parents can't refuse, Bryan Singer's remake of Red Sonja is shelved due to sexual assault allegations against him, a Seth Rogan sidekick apologizes to the SJW goon squad, and they're sleepless in DC. Cocaine, catamites and need to rob the treasury will do that, I guess.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue. Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

12 As Expected, Bipartisan Border Deal Is a Total Insult


Congressional negotiators have taken that finding by the committee of Communists and DIABLOs to heart and agreed to a piss-ant funding for a few miles of wall. Trump requested $5.7B, they have agreed to $1.3B. The normal RNCe compromise; heads they win, tails we lose. Trump should tell them to stick it up their ass and transfer money from funding for the CDC and HUDD.

And Hannity doesn't think too much of this sell-out either.

My thought is the RINOs and DIABLOs never really wanted to get rid of it anyway.

29 RE: Border Deal

I've seen cable news, the WaPo morning paper and now NPR ask "will the President sign the deal" but no one is asking if Schumer or Pelosi will agree to it. I think that is very much up in the air... and if they do agree to vote on it, the bill could still fail to pass the House if enough Democrats revolt on funding any money for "Wall" (which would be delicious to have the Pelosi house trigger another shutdown). Also, the media keeps defining the barrier funds as for a "Fence" and not the concrete Wall Trump asks for... which is bullshit. The deal allows them to construct the exact kind of steel slat design that Trump has been requesting for months.

Its going to be very interesting to watch how certain Democrats vote on this bill.

49 CNN political analyst April Ryan, Washington bureau chief for American
Urban Radio Networks, said past U.S. presidents like Bill Clinton and
George W. Bush refused to formally 'apologize for slavery' because it
would lead to some form of reparations for descendants of slaves.


I have always said that if these race baiting clowns would show me anyone who had been held in chattel slavery in this country AND that the government looked the other way and allowed them to be held, then these turds would have a case to bring to court for some type of redress.

But reparations for the events that occurred over 150 years ago when all of the people involved are moldering in their graves is ludicrous. Besides that, reparations are something paid by a country to victims of an illegal war that was started by the offending country.


So if any of the race baiting turds like Brazil have a case, bring it to court or STFU.

I just need to remind myself of that because-not that particular comment was-but there are some people on other sites-who are sincerely over the top in hero worship over Trump.

87 More Noos; today is Tuesday, February 12, 2019. On this day in 1554 Lady Jane Grey and her husband were beheaded for treason. Her guilt lied in the fact that Mary who had been declared illegitimate was made queen after the 'privy council' changed its mind and Mary was a threat to the throne. Mary's father was executed later. The so-called 'divine right of Kings' sure depended a lot on thuggish behavior. This is something the founders kept in mind when writing the Constitution to replace the Articles of Confederation.

59 Year Old Jim Nantz's wife had a baby last year.

Nantz was married to Ann-Lorraine "Lorrie" Carlsen Nantz for 26 years before divorcing in 2009.

Nantz acknowledged dating a 29-year-old woman before the divorce was final, although the judge concluded the marriage deteriorated years earlier and "this remote event in no way contributed to the breakdown of the marriage." Nantz earns $7 million a year.

On June 9, 2012, Nantz married Courtney Richards in a ceremony at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, California.[23] Nantz and his wife have a daughter born in 2014 and a son born in 2016.

160 Re: delivering babies instead of aborting them in 3rd trimester - Here's the thing, and don't tell me this wasn't intentional: a lot of states have implemented an open records approach to adoption, enabling kids given up for adoption to find their parents. This is an incentive for a woman to abort instead of deliver and give over the baby for adoption, since that baby becomes something that could appear in her life at any moment down the road and possibly wreak havoc.

Having gone through my husband finding his borth parents as an adult, it is a very Pandora's box experience, since you have no idea what the motives of the parents were for not wanting the baby, nor the kids and/or parent's motivation is for tracking them down. Sure, it can be for connection - but it also could be for money, some type of medical donation, or event desperation after alienating all other family members.


I guess what I am saying is if we the federal Deliver-Alive Human Being Protection Act. (and we do!), then there needs to be some protections in place for the birth parents to get them to buy in to that.

Yeah, it is a weird cultural thing. I sometimes see women wearing tight jeans and turtleneck sweaters with the hijab. I can only laugh

Same thing when I took a group of students to the art museum. One was a Christian who wore modest clothes and no makeup. She was shocked by sack wearing Muslim girls pointing at nude paintings and shrieking with laughter and saying OMG. My student had a different idea about what modest behavior is.

I think it's a decades-long cultural conditioning that it's ok, and in many cases, preferable to abort your child than to have it. Think of the sick woman who blogged her abortion. You can see inklings of it, if you look in the right places, of the NAMBLA stuff that is slowly accelerating into the cultural discourse. Normalize it. Over time, it helps blunt our natural instincts.

So take the funding from congress and then do emergency funding for the rest. No reason to turn down their funding.

Take the lame amount and fence the tame/difficult to get to areas, corralling all into a relatively small un-fenced area. Then declare national emergency to fund the remaining areas with some serious bollards.

However, last cold snap they had brownouts on heat supporting their idiotic green energy initiatives. No more tolerance. Cold kills pretty quickly and they had better get their ducks in a row. Klobuchar is an idiot and the Bro-Fo is a cancer.

Funny (to me) story I heard years ago. Had a neighbor who worked a lot in the Saudi oil fields and spent a lot of time there. He told me once about how when he'd fly home, there would always be a certain number of Saudi male/female couples on the plane, with the females wearing the usual Muz potato sack garb.

So the plane takes off and away they go. Some time goes by and along about the point where the plane clears Saudi airspace, one by one the Saudi women would get up and go to the lavatory. When they came out they would be dressed in spray on jeans, low cut blouses, lot of jewelry and makeup. And their male partners were perfectly OK with this.

Don't know if that still goes on today (this was back in the 1980s) but we found it amusing all the same...

287 Oh, geez, it may be that the man she says is her husband and father of her children has gone by two different names. This is from the letter from Powerlineblog attempting to clarify this a few years ago:



1. Is the Ahmed Aden named on the 2002 marriage license the Ahmed Hirsi whom Ms. Omar identifies as her husband and the father of her children on her campaign site? Did Ms. Omar marry Ahmed Aden? Did Ms. Omar live with Ahmed Aden? Who is Ahmed Aden and where is he now?

2. Has Ms. Omar ever married Ahmed Hirsi, the man she identifies as her husband and the father of her children on her campaign site? Is Ahmed Hirsi another name for the man identified as Ahmed Aden on the 2002 marriage license?

3. Does Ilhan Omar have a brother named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi?

4. I understand that Ms. Omar acknowledges Ahmed Nur Said Elmi as her legal husband. Is that correct? Who is the man identified as Ahmed Nur Said Elmi on Ms. Omar's 2009 marriage license and where is he now? Did Ms. Omar ever live with him? When and where did she live with him?

5. Ms. Omar and Ahmed Hirsi appear to have lived as husband and wife for more than 10 years, since around 2002. Is that correct?

Since Democrats can question Republicans about their deeply held religious beliefes, can we also ask muslims like Ilhan Omar her deeplyheld religious beliefs?

For example, under Sharia Law:

- A Muslim man has sexual rights to any woman/girl not wearing the hijab.
- A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
- A woman or girl who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist.
- A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.

If she denies these beliefs in order to be a Congresswoman, she is denying the Koran and suject to punishment by death.

When is someone going to ask her these questions?

329 So the plane takes off and away they go. Some time goes by and along about the point where the plane clears Saudi airspace, one by one the Saudi women would get up and go to the lavatory. When they came out they would be dressed in spray on jeans, low cut blouses, lot of jewelry and makeup. And their male partners were perfectly OK with this.

Don't know if that still goes on today (this was back in the 1980s) but we found it amusing all the same...


I have some work colleagues (military) who travel regularly to the ME.

Their stories are..interesting. No alcohol on the planes UNTIL they leave the ground, then Open Bar, Brothers. I've heard stories of the flight crew keeping lots of those little bottles on standby, when wheels up they pass them out and you have formerly-reserved military personnel not even bothering with ice or glasses or anything. Sometimes they'll wave out the window too.

I've also heard stories similar to what you mention - men in their regalia wasting little time in losing it for polo shirts, women doing the get-up-removal, etc.

Fascinating.

So if you take issue with their policies or the rhetoric they are trying to normalize, you can be met with the response, "You ought to be ashamed of yourselves! Attacking a silly, young, defenseless little brown woman! You are just like the people who shot Malala Yousafzai in the head! Worse! I bet you kick puppies too!"

I guess this is all by design? Once we get used to them, the next step will be to roll out the 6'2 neckbeards who would have spooked people if they were deployed first. They'll wash their feet in the Congressional bathroom sinks and pray butt upwards in halls of Congress.

A Course in Miracles. It is a book, and "handbook for practitioners" written by a Columbia U professor several decades ago. The woman, Helen Schucman, was having trouble with one of the other professors at Columbia, and she was wishing that she could find a better way of getting along with him when she says she began hearing a voice in her head telling her to write down what it said.

Schucman wrote down what she heard in her head, and eventually published that material as A Course in Miracles. She says the voice was Jesus Christ. A lot of people think it was Satan or some other malevolent entity, or perhaps just mental illness.

356 A few years ago, some Afghani soldiers were at Joint Base Cape Cod for training. They unexpectedly disappeared and the LCDR who was in charge told me what happened over breakfast.

Based on my experience with our ME allies, I told him to go to the strip club near the base and ask them to pull their security tapes from the night before.

Sure enough, there were our boys. Acting all devout.

Using the tapes from the parking lot, we were able to find the rental car they took and track them down in Western New York heading to Canada.

Strip clubs are awesome in ME military relations.

__________________

I read ACIM years ago and don't remember everything that was in it, but it didn't so much contradict the Bible as offer a new interpretation. Some people liked that new interpretation, some didn't. ACIM does not deny that Jesus was the Son of God, but it says that all the rest of us are as well (which is pretty much what the Bible said too: "I have said ye are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High").

There was one (that I recall) point where Jesus' teachings in the Bible was contradicted in ACIM, and that was the verse where Jesus says that he came not to bring peace, but a sword. ACIM says that was not an accurate interpretation of Jesus' message.

Was Helen Schucman really channeling Jesus Christ in ACIM? I don't know. The message of the book is pretty much love and peace and forgiveness, so I doubt it was the work of Satan. But I share your skepticism of channeled material, given what we have seen of other religions that were channeled (thinking here of Islam, which was said to have been channeled by Muhammad from the angel Gabriel).

It doesn't matter what hatred you spew, what socialist horrors you package as utopia, what nonsense you drivel. The left is, and always has been, a shallow group of voters. They will do anything to make themselves think that they are part of the "cool kids" which they interpret as "attractive kids" because they are not smart enough to know better.

How does Hollywood vote, again? How do liberals view entertainers?

There are good looking people on both sides of the aisle, of course, but if you discern the pattern it is obvious. The left remain infatuated with pretty. See "Obama, Barack Hussein" if you want more proof. See how they swoon over his wife and insist that she is the most beautiful woman in any room.

Yep. That is my read. Trump should just move MILCON money to the border and build walls. No need to make this a big publicity stunt. That will invite the drama from the Left. Just Do It and then in 2020 talk about the miles of walls you've installed.

406 It doesn't matter what hatred you spew, what socialist horrors you package as utopia, what nonsense you drivel. The left is, and always has been, a shallow group of voters. They will do anything to make themselves think that they are part of the "cool kids" which they interpret as "attractive kids" because they are not smart enough to know better.

Interesting point, and I think spot on. Perhaps that's why we're seeing pushback from unexpected quarters, like in the gamer community.

Thing is, I was never popular growing up (and not really popular now, truth be told), so by necessity I grew up with a fanatical devotion to the idea of self-sufficiency. Such a thing is anathema to the Left, I think, and in my more introspective days I wonder if this is behind the Left's insistence that EVERYONE BELONGS NO ONE IS EXCLUDED.

424 I don't want to get into a whole rabbit hole about the divinization of human beings, but I am not on board with it. I don't think "transformed into the image of Christ" means divinization, and I also think the quotes taken from the psalms are taken out of context. As far as I recall from "Unity" they are Unitarians and don't believe in the divinity of Christ, I do and I don't think I can aspire to the Godhead and don't want to. When people go on about Jesus being unique in the same way everybody is unique-he just was a little more "advanced" I head the other direction, And again, here are very fine people who follow the teachings of Unity, but I don't want Mariane Williams as my President, but since she made a lot from her books I think she's probably a capitalist not a communist. Lots of people like Williamson so she might have a big following.

That is incorrect. Read Psalm 82, it's short: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ps+82&version=KJV

It's not talking about "the rest of us". It is talking about unjust judges who will "die like men". This is also quoted by Jesus in John 10:30 and twisted out of context by Mormons.

>>>There was one (that I recall) point where Jesus' teachings in the Bible was contradicted in ACIM, and that was the verse where Jesus says that he came not to bring peace, but a sword. ACIM says that was not an accurate interpretation of Jesus' message.

This refers to dissension within families if read in context. Jesus is saying that moral duties transcend family ties. That seems reasonable and would cast doubt on anyone who contradicted it.

473 Maybe the Democracy part would work better if the people voting had skin in the game, so to speak? Such as, you get to vote in a national election if you pay federal taxes?

474 Look, I love y'all, but can the capitalized "He" please be reserved for either the first word in a sentence or reference to the Deity, rather than a mere President? I'm as irreverent as the next Moron, but it's getting a tad uncomfortable seeing it used for PDT...

476 >>Brie "Love Child of Robert Z'Dar and Kristen Stewart" Larson: "I don't want white males on my press tour for Captain Marvel."

Is that sub headline a joke?

"The Oscar-winning actress is taking an active role in ensuring her blockbuster press tour remains inclusive."

Inclusive = NO WHITE MEN ALLOWED!

477 If this thing goes tits up - I'm dead-set against starting over with anything remotely resembling a Democracy combined with a Republic. Dead set against it.

Severe limits on government, combined with severe limits on the franchise. The way it was in the beginning and should always have been.

481 Technically awesome. Absolutely beautiful for a kitchen or dining room. Be close to your food. I still regret not buying some 'anatomical' watercolors of various vegetables for my kitchen. Sister gave me a lovely poppy/marigold watercolor by the same vegetable artist; but I still regret that I was too broke at the time for the vegetable dissections.

I really have to recommend a series called 'Jakers' which has a subplot with a herd of sheep. The ram is voiced by the incomparable Mel Brooks.

I really am a Moron.

Universal Citizenship is definitely part of the problem.

But, as our history showed, any such requirements are too easily changed.

Didn't you have to be a landowner at one time to vote?

Posted by: CoolHandLuke at February 12, 2019 09:37 AM (U2+zT)

483 Cavil, and tep that is how it goes out to the mases.

484 Rules don't constrain Power. Power alters Rules. If we've learned anything, we should have learned that.

Very true, sadly. I used to argue we can't go back to the old ways with the current culture, after all. Sigh.

Posted by: Brother Cavil at February 12, 2019 09:45 AM (AM1GF)

485 Looks like by the 1830's most of the states got rid of the property requirement to vote and voting increased dramatically from prior levels - up to 80% of the adult, mainly white population at the time per Wikipedia.

I'm all for people getting a voice, but when 47% of Americans currently have no Federal Tax skin in the game, they can vote themselves whatever they want when that gets over 50%.

487 Chicago police are walking on egg shells trying not to just outright call Smollett a liar, but reading between the lines, they just have, and deservedly so.

492 Saw Ilhan Omar's questioning of Eliot Abrams on the news. Eliot Abrams is Jewish. If the media was doing their job shouldn't she be asked if the nominee was not Jewish would her questions/behavior been different.
