The Morning Report - 5/21/19

stooge.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday's here so here we go. Continuing on from yesterday, we have now what has devolved into a two-headed beast, where the Democrat-Left-Media Complex continues its coup/smear campaign to take down President Trump while covering up the crimes of the plotters that the other Siamese twin is attempting to fully expose to the American people. The President has instructed former White House counsel Don McGahn to ignore a House subpoena while an Obama-appointed hack-in-black has decreed that the President must turn over his financial records so that the Democrats can sift through them to manufacture evidence for an impeachment proceeding.

In the real world, two essays ask two key questions as to the origins of the Steele Dossier as well as why did Obama allow Comey to brief Trump about the Russky prostitute fable? The short answers are that a) considering the key players involved were all from or associated with the British intel community, it appears that John Brennan intentionally skirted American proscriptions on CIA spying of citizens by hiring the Brits to do the spying for him and that b) Comey briefed Trump as a pretext for giving the dossier a veneer of legitimacy for the press to run with, since by itself, even they were dubious/skeptical of its veracity. But read the links as you'll want to get every last drop of information. Lastly, Justin Amash's brazen hatred and stupidity got him more than he bargained for; the love and admiration of his fellow "Palestinian" from Dearbornistan and a primary challenger. At this point, I don't care if it's the illegitimate love child of Todd Akin and Christine O'Donnell - whoever it is gets my full-throated endorsement.

To the border where Trump's new pick to head ICE said some rather disparaging things about the President early on in 2017, and yet he is seemingly fully on board as of now with the President's immigration agenda and the border wall. Elsewhere, a legitimate asylum-seeker backs Trump's policies 100%, the LA Times is reporting that pregnant illegals are being turned back, presumably as a way to smear him and us as cruel, heartless, racists raping the Emma Lazarus Poem what doubles as proof of open borders, and lastly, despite what the national Leftist leadership and candidates will tell you, the reality of releasing hordes of border jumpers into the interior of the nation is not appreciated by either side of the divide. All politics indeed is local.

Dem Scandal Sheet and Joo-Hatred: A headline likely to be buried in the media, Rancida Tliban's Holocaust comments as propaganda and a Dem Virginia lawmaker has ties to anti-Semitic groups. Along with the Democrat Party itself. And moving on to Civil War 2.0, PA Democrat thug, the bearded clam known as Brian Sims apologizes... for not ripping the arms off the old lady and beating the two teenybopper pro-life kids to death with them.

Politics: President Trump held another rip-roaring rally yesterday, this time in PA where a few people passed out from the heat while enjoying the President boosting America and ripping the Dems, PDT slams Bernie's candidacy and record, Dem 2020 hopefuls turn to John Brennan of all people for Iran advice, Fauxca-Has-Been is now Ruthless Westheimer, Ed Markey faces a primary challenger, and a few good essays on Trump winning on race, the Dems' descent into madness and Daniel Greenfield on the Left running on nothing but conspiracies.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Twitter silences critics of Al Jazeera's Holocaust deniers, coordinated anti-Trump campaign uncovered at Instagram, Josh Hawley looks to cut off Big Brother Tech's information gathering on all of us, Chris Wallace let Mayor Buttplug smear his own network and colleagues and said nothing, and fat fool Brian Stetler attempts to rip Mark Levin's latest work and winds up proving the very premise of the book. Nice work, lumpy.

Abortion: Joe Bidet was for the Hyde Amendment before he was against it, Mittelschmerz Romney openly blasts Alabama baby protection law; funny, I don't recall hearing a peep out of him when NY and VA gave standing ovations to their infanticide laws, and G0d bless Alabama indeed. Hey, you think this is not smart politically or it will enrage the mythical independents/undecideds? What about the aforementioned baby-killers? Sorry. They started it, and we will finish it. It's a winning issue.

Foreign Affairs: Farsicle Farsi opens pie-hole and demands respect or something, US intel warning on Iran surprise attacks in the Gulf (considering the legacy of Clapper and Brennan, as well as the run-up to Gulf War 2, I am wary), despite Trump's bluster, his words about our military-industrial complex indicate a more cautious approach, Huawei exec under house arrest, or mansion arrest, two more essays on the Aussie election win for conservatives, Switzerland goes to grab guns and will live to regret it, Italy's PM Salvini is dead right, and Qatar affirms its status as a terrorist lover.

Speaking of terrorism, sad trombone for Hezbollah as Trump's cutting their money sources off has forced them to make cutbacks (M-80s < Semtex), and a French shrink confirms the myth of the mentally ill jihadist.

Domestic News: Elderly, disabled USGS employee harassed at work for supporting the President, that California housing edict that would ban zoning for single family homes is now on hold until after 2020 (must be polling horribly, even there), on New York's own insane zoning laws and the shit-holes they engender, and NY State's madness on energy policy.

The Economy: Three on the China-US Trade Battle where Huawei is hit with export controls (long overdue we stop giving away our high tech secrets to an imperialist enemy), economist is dead right on Trump reordering the globalist madness and making America predominant again, and the Chi-Coms are threatening an embargo of rare earth metals, which would redound badly on them. Also, Philly's crazy tax on soda goes totally flat and Kamala-Toe seeks to punish corporations over the myth of a gender pay gap. All the evidence shows it's virtually non-existent but never let a talking point go to waste.

Healthcare: Nightmare situation at Houston hospital, measles is breaking out all over and Gavin Newsom's healthcare for illegal aliens as legal citizens suffer.

Education: LA Mayor Garcetti spews some sort of open borders drivel at a graduation ceremony.

Red Greens: Candidate with no shot in hell Michael Bennett thinks topping out the Green New Luddite Plunge at $10 Trillion will make him electable.

Real Science: India and China are serious about mooning a man on the land.

Hither and Yon: Confirmed - Donald Trump has made America less racist, a gaming journalist goes SJW, Christian Toto calls for a new Invasion of the Body Snatchers for the "woke" generation, and finally the tongue-in-cheek confessions of a former white supremacist.

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

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.

If it were somehow determined that Obama's publicly accepted status as a "natural born US citizen" were fraudulent, thus his Presidency was illegitimate, I wonder if anyone would have the 'nads to go the full distance and say that any appointements he made are illegitimate, too.

Sadly, this may be the only way to properly clean house. And even if the evidence was served up on a silver platter, too many would allow it to pass.

32 One leetle detail I can't get my head around, is under what warped set of reasoning does St Comey privately briefing the President-Elect on ANYTHING make the topic into legitimate news that Creep Clapper can report to his buddies at CNN?
Seems like both Comey (by accepting the "mission") and Clapper (by releasing information subject to Executive Privilege)are guilty of dereliction of duty at the very least/ That's a jury I'd like to be on!

35 House Dems are not just getting Brennan's advise on Iran, but $#%@ Wendy Sherman's.

She led not only the Iran deal, but the N Korea nuke deal for Bill Clinton. The best advice should be to do the OPPOSITE of whatever Wendy Sherman would. She's a Jamie Gorelick mini-me (having a hand in DC failures).

I suppose it would go without saying that Brennan and Sherman are likely on Iran's payroll?

Brennan knew even he could not legally use the CIA to spy on an American citizen. So he hired a willing MI-6 to do the dirty work for him.

And when even the media wouldn't run with the dossier, Comey telling Trump about it made it a news item that they could then include because Comey briefing Trump made it, or gave it a veneer, of legitimacy.

44 Attorney General William Barr said that his handling of the Mueller report and its aftermath is rooted in a desire to defend the power of the executive branch rather than personal support for President Trump.
"I felt the rules were being changed to hurt Trump, and I thought it was damaging for the presidency over the long haul," Barr told The Wall Street Journal in El Salvador in an interview published Monday, where he traveled last week to boost support for Trump's policies toward the violent street gang MS-13.

75 So. . . the mask slipped off and revealed this:

Want to Dismantle Capitalism? Abolish the Family

Feminist theorist Sophie Lewis's new book looks at how rethinking pregnancy and the idea of family as forms of labor is central to emancipatory politics. . .

It's a central idea to feminism anyway, that mothers aren't natural entities; they're making choices to look after this other person. It's not some sort of mechanical, automatic process; it's a practice of grounding sociality.

Mothers nurture, but they also kill and abuse their wards. That's why it's so valuable to denaturalize the mother-child bond. To do anything otherwise is to devalue that work. That's the horizon that I think opens up the space for a revolutionary politics.

94 The statue of Liberty was meant to symbolize the freedom that Americans had won by throwing off the shackles of tyranny in the Revolutionary War (a war the French helped us win). The lamp Liberty holds was meant to show the people of other nations the way -- not the way to come to the U.S. and mooch off Americans (i.e. the Emma Lazarus way), but the way for them to throw off tyranny in their own lands, by following the example of what Americans had done, and fighting for their own freedom.

Emma Lazarus' poem is a ludicrous piece of blather that completely misinterprets the meaning of the statue of Liberty, and never should have been placed anywhere near it.

"The world we need won't be built by men loyal to the world we have. It's not easy to see something that's never been before. A good world."

"How do you know it will be good?"

"Because I know what is good," Daenerys affirms.

The AGW wave crashed spectacularly in Australia, and remember, the international left spent the last 6 years putting every resource they had into finding a nation where they could use the Climate Scare to take over the political landscape completely. Of course, as soon as that was done the Marxist control of all economic life would kick in, since that is really what it is all about.

And they Lost! Amazingly, with 6 years of planning and all the hype in the world, they lost! They even sent a former UN High Commissioner to Australia to personally campaign against Conservative candidates (on account of they were gonna destroy the Earth) - and they Lost!!!

Have you ever noticed how often the green left invokes World War II as their model for the kind of effort they want to put into fighting 'Climate Change?' Let's think back on World War II a minute:
1. The Government took control of all economic assets.
2. Basic freedoms were suspended and the power of the Central Government vastly expanded.
3. The Government put people in prison (or camps) if they were designated a threat to the effort.

I can see why the left likes that model.

Posted by: JackStraw at May 21, 2019 08:53 AM (/tuJf)

A big part of the reason for that is that consultants keep producing polls which show them that Climate Change is a winning issue, that they can take power that way.

But then 54 polls in a row said that the Left was going to win the Australia election easily. Not one single poll got the actual result right, it was unthinkable.

If they had any intelligence at all (but of course they don't) the candidates who are crafting their policies based on consultant's polls would be asking themselves, "what if all of my information is catastrophically, and I am moving in the opposite direction of where I need to be going?"

But that's like expecting a radical Muslim to wonder, "What if Allah really DOESN"T want me to kill all these apostate infidels?"

240 Military Industrial Complex is really just ex-military and current military officers who are on the payroll of certain companies. Sometimes the money is direct, sometimes indirect via thinktanks, academic posts, TV gigs, future lobby jobs, etc. Go to the Pentagon and you can throw a rock and hit one.

Its not about the war part so much that annoys me. What annoys me is the incredible waste, stupid military strategies, and mission objectives they come up with. In WWII, the mission objectives were to destroy the enemy and force them to accept our moral view of the world.


Now it is more about learning about other cultures, doing teamwork exercises with our allies, while we do lots of expensive national infrastructure projects for the "conquered country". It is about the world force for good, not doing whatever is in America's best interest.

Notice how a lot of the military industrial complex was for the Obama Iran Deal. Why? Boeing was hot for it along with a few others. It was not in America's best interests, but these officers loved it because they put their loyalty to Boeing and their future employers ahead of the country.

So Trump is wrong about the Military Industrial Complex always wanting war, they want $. You notice we have not exactly been as efficient winning wars since 1945 and there is a reason for that.

Have you ever noticed how often the green left invokes World War II as their model for the kind of effort they want to put into fighting 'Climate Change?' Let's think back on World War II a minute:
1. The Government took control of all economic assets.
2. Basic freedoms were suspended and the power of the Central Government vastly expanded.
3. The Government put people in prison (or camps) if they were designated a threat to the effort.

I can see why the left likes that model.

Congressional leaders who have openly announced their intentions to "prosecute" "investigate" and "impeach" the President based on whatever they hope they can dig up, not so much.

And its hard not to be made "racist" when observing foreign born individuals who come to this country to achieve positions of power e.g. Federal Court Judge and head of Google, who clearly have no freaking sense of American Constitutional law or basic American values like free speech, limited government.

I actually think they are trying to get the right numbers, and they can't. That's actually worse for them - if they were biased, then it would just be a matter of removing the bias and the numbers could be believable; but if the problem is that the underlying mathematical and statistical assumptions that polling depends on are flat out wrong, then polling will never be anything more than throwing darts at a wall and pretending you're a prophet.

Gets around 90 percent of eligible voters, but if you look at the actual numbers of votes cast vis a vis the vote totals for each candidate, there's a leeeetle problem - namely, that seemingly lots 'o folks write in (that's legit) something else.
Years ago some Ozzie reporter calculated that "Mickey Mouse" had more votes over the years than any of their political parties...

305 I actually think they are trying to get the right numbers, and they can't. That's actually worse for them - if they were biased, then it would just be a matter of removing the bias and the numbers could be believable; but if the problem is that the underlying mathematical and statistical assumptions that polling depends on are flat out wrong, then polling will never be anything more than throwing darts at a wall and pretending you're a prophet.

I've come to believe that all polling is Junk Science, which is why it can be manipulated so easily.

313 There are internal polls which are normally remarkably focused on either an issue, demographic or region. All others are just foppery of what they want to hear. The death of local newspapers is probably the reason they get stuff so wrong. With every town and city having a newspaper, you had plenty of locally 'in the know' people who could toss fapping polls out on their ear. Today you have maybe five urban newspapers that probably know their blue shit hole very well but have no clue what the other 80% of America is thinking.

Posted by: Puddin Head - CNN at May 21, 2019 09:19 AM (2LelM)

314 But then 54 polls in a row said that the Left was
going to win the Australia election easily. Not one single poll got the
actual result right, it was unthinkable.



If they had any intelligence at all (but of course they don't) the
candidates who are crafting their policies based on consultant's polls
would be asking themselves, "what if all of my information is
catastrophically, and I am moving in the opposite direction of where I
need to be going?"



But that's like expecting a radical Muslim to wonder, "What if Allah
really DOESN"T want me to kill all these apostate infidels?"



Posted by: Tom Servo at May 21, 2019 08:59 AM

---

Same thing happened here after Trump won. Pollsters refused to rethink what they were doing or how they were doing it. Not talking about National polls here, but about State polls, especially swing State polling.

They had clinton walking away with PA, FL, MI and WI. Every single poll before the election in those States got it wrong. And no one seems to care, at least no one in the polling business.


That should tell us something about the trustworthiness of polls in the US.

I think it's a combination of factors including a distraction from the blowback they know is coming with the full release of what happened in 2016.

We talk about it all the time so we are kind of numb to the magnitude of what the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign did but the general public really isn't very aware of what really happened.

This is without a doubt the biggest scandal in US history and they can see it coming at them and they can't stop it.

I'm hoping they do. Landslide Trump is hoping for this as well.

I was over at a friends house this weekend. Thirty year veteran of the State Department with his friend 'Dano' the former NYC DJ and family there. I was asked who would win the 2020 election and I told them Trump by a 43-44 State Landslide. Jeebus, they all went into shock. They still do not understand that their youthful reactionary RnR beliefs are now orthodoxy and the Americans don't like it. The irony of this was listening to Dano the angry man talk about conspiracies. He doesn't understand that his whole career was to proselytize via RnR and now the kids listen to Rap and Disco Shit Hot Chick songs. I felt like I had entered Hell and realized I could not bring any of the back to the living. So I changed the subject and had a beer.

No one thing is strong enough to become a cultural touchstone anymore.

Marvel as a whole is, but none of the individual characters are.

A long running TV show like Game of Thrones can get close, but that's because it's in the forefront of the cultural consciousness for years (much like a series of Marvel movies).

The days of Star Wars coming on the scene and deeply affecting the culture is gone. We can't wait 3 more years for the next big thing. There's another big thing coming out in theaters next week, on HBO the week after that, and Twitter has declared them all problematic before the end of the month.

And Titanic is definitely a cultural touchstone still.

BUT when it came to utilizing some of the (illegally obtained) spy data, they had to be more careful. So they pretended the US was not spying, it was the Brits (but actually at Brennan's, or whoever's, request) And if it went to trial, they could not use the illegal data, so they did "parallel reconstruction" of what they already had (illegally) found.


Perkins/Fusion/etc. all seem part of the scam, with a particular group of anti-American globalists getting quite rich off the whole scam ... protection racket for the oligarchs (protection FROM the likes of Trump, FROM we the people having our Republic stolen).
