The Morning Report - 12/20/19

bonkpalsi.jpg

Good morning kids. The weekend is here and with Sunday the longest night of the year, it's not the beginning of the winter of our discontent but the winter of our disgust.
As horrible as it was to endure what took place on Wednesday, which was the culmination of the previous three years (and in reality the past one hundred or more) with more to come, it is nevertheless equally depressing to know that there can never be a going back to any semblance or even thinnest pretext of comity with the Left. They want the country and they want us subjugated or dead. And that's being an optimist since the reverse is more than likely the case.

Be that as it may, they have committed, IMHO, political suicide. I think before all of this, Trump stood a somewhat better than even chance of winning 2020 but now I think it won't even be a question of if he will win or even by how large a margin; the real question is how tremendous of a landslide will the victory be? The impeachment isn't necessarily the real reason for my prognostication (which might yet change since 11 months is an eternity in politics), but when you look at what was said last night at the latest train wreck camouflaged as a Democrat debate, it's merely the giant wooden spike into the undead heart of Dracula. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

Beyond 2020/2024, things get a bit murkier. Despite the unreconstructed, pig-ignorant ravings of blowhards like Meathead Reiner and DeNiro, Trump will leave office at noon on January 20th, 2025. The questions are first, assuming that the era of Trump and the concomitant self-immolation of the Democrat party ushers in Republican control of government for perhaps as much as a further 8 to 12 years, will it be the same old GOP-e or a slew of Trump acolytes who will continue the transformation of the party and restoration of the republic? Second, given this ultimate act of sham impeachment, the combined no-longer-in-the-shadows Deep State/administrative state and their political wing of the Democrat Party (or its successor) is now completely unmoored from any legal restraints, let alone ethics or morality, the odds of them accepting banishment to the wilderness is slim to none. We know what they will do when (sadly) one day they do win a national majority (legitimately or otherwise). But if indeed they are wiped out for an extended period of time, in their eyes, since Trump is illegitimate, everything he and whoever and however many GOP-T (Trump) successors he has and what they collectively have or will have done and implemented, from laws and reforms to his remaking of the judiciary is or will be equally illegitimate.

Impeachment is not the end, nor is it the beginning of the end. I think the fuse is lit for G-d knows what. Fasten your seatbelts.

What I like though is that people are like, okay, you want to pretend its a thing, lets pretend its a thing. You didn't impeach then.

Nancy backed off of her no transmittal language - I guarantee that the managers come to the Senate first business day in January.

Nice.

I love all the, "How could anyone ever possibly vote for x?" stuff.

It's all nonsense, even when it comes from our side. I can think of a bunch of reasons why someone who hated coal, wanted more regulation, to tax the rich more, and wanted to impose progressive values would want to vote for Elizabeth Warren.

The idea that Trump might be an effective vehicle for things that we want is weirdly foreign to a shocking number of people.

I hope Mayor Pete will stop mentioning that's he gay. We know that, Pete. I guess it's to win applause when you throw up a line something like "I know about a coalition, Imagine the coalition that managed to elect a gay guy mayor in Pence's Indiana."

45 Boeing Starliner astronaut transport vehicle test flight status:

Launch from Cape Canaveral was on-time at 6:36 AM ET. Good first and second stage performance. But there was a TBD problem with Starliner's systems that prevented the scheduled orbit insertion burn using Starliner's orbital maneuvering engine. Smaller attitude control engines were used to put the vehicle into a stable but low orbit.

The flight control team in Houston is continuing to troubleshoot and work-up options. Starliner is in good shape for now - solar arrays are deployed and working. But if they can't get the current guidance and/or propulsion system problems resolved, I don't believe Starliner can rendezvous and dock to ISS. Not sure if it can correctly re-enter and land, either.

NOTE: This is an un-manned test flight

55 Powerline has an article up about Minnesota's own adulterous, brother-marrying, tax and marriage fraudster Ilhan Omar.

Omar was crowing yesterday about the passage of a bill to give "debt relief" (i.e., more of U.S. taxpayers' money) to Somalia, which owes the U.S. over a billion dollars. "We got this done today!" says Omar about the passage of the bill. The bill was supported by all the mooching Somalis living in Omar's Minneapolis district, who obviously want to see more of our money going to their homies back home.

Anyway, the funniest thing about the bill that Omar was so excited about is that . . . Omar voted against it.

And in even happier news for Omar, her adulterous current squeeze got his divorce from his son's mommy finalized yesterday, so he and his bed-mate Omar will probably break up soon, since it's no fun for her to be screwing somebody unless she's breaking some legal or ethical rule.

60 "it is nevertheless equally depressing to know that there can never be a going back to any semblance or even thinnest pretext of comity with the Left."

I find it actually kind of refreshing. I gave up the idea that there could ever be "comity with the left" on the day that Obamacare passed, or maybe it was the day that Obama was elected. I've hated the left consistently ever since that point, and everything they have done has only confirmed by belief.

So now I am feeling a great deal of comfort in finally seeing so many on my side come to where I've been for quite a few years. As far as current events? I've expected this from the moment Nancy took back the Speaker's gavel. It was inevitable.

61 "After all, Hallmark has perfected its tried-and-true formula --
generic, cozy, formulaic -- over years, it wouldn't be hard to simply
swap one gender in its pile of un-produced scripts," Dry wrote. "Better
yet, solicit an up-and-coming LGBTQ writer to craft the script, hire an
LGBTQ director and cast the movie with LGBTQ actors.In an ideal
world, an LGBTQ Hallmark movie would be exactly like every other
Hallmark movie, except with queer actors playing the estranged twins who swap lives."

Gotta love the SJW bullies arrogance, how easily they can take charge of an institution's/company's business decisions like they own the place.


Also, the "twins who swap lives" mention isn't random - that's a movie by Hallmark Channel regular Candace Cameron Bure, who happens to be an outspoken Christian conservative (like her brother, Kirk Cameron). They're gunning for them as much as Hallmark.

62 I criticized Trump for a long time for not taking "action", as in firing Sessions or Mueller. I was wrong. Trump evidently has a style and strategy that is his own, and that basically sees the value in allowing all the mishegas to play out, in the belief that the craziness will unfurl and the people will recognize it.

This counts on a critical mass of people being capable of seeing truth and reason in a world going insane.

We like to think that a lot of people vote for policy, but it seems like most don't.

They vote for who makes them "feel" good, or they vote for who they think is more likely to win, and if they _do_ vote in policy, it's usually entirely focused around abortion.

Political junkies are a minority.

Hell, they dont' want elections and of they are ever in total power again, I would not be surprised if they set things up so Republicans can never win again. They are trying now with illegals voting and other fraud and will only become more rabid after Trump wins again. Intimidation will become commonplace in the streets. They have to be found out and removed from every position including dog catcher. I want THEM afraid to make their political position I known in the workplace and everywhere.

Hilariously, it was on PBS this time, and they didn't update their program guide data so it showed as "Antiques Roadshow" on most cable/satellite boxes. The Trump campaign of course put out a press release noting that.

82 As to those who are worrying past 2020, or especially 2024, I can only refer to a quote by William Gibson that has been stuck in my mind for years:

"We have no idea, now, of who or what the inhabitants of our future might be. In that sense, we have no future. Not in the sense that our grandparents had a future, or thought they did. Fully imagined cultural futures were the luxury of another day, one in which 'now' was of some greater duration. For us, of course, things can change so abruptly, so violently, so profoundly, that futures like our grandparents' have insufficient 'now' to stand on. We have no future because our present is too volatile. ... We have only risk management. The spinning of the given moment's scenarios. Pattern recognition."

157 Miss Lindsey and a few others are looking at this as if they were lawyers and Trump is a client charged with a crime.

Of course the thing to do is have him acquitted as quickly and easily as possible, avoiding any surprises at all costs.

However, that's not what's happening here.

Democrats went for the indelible stain of impeachment, just for spite. They knew they had no chance of removal, but they went ahead to get that asterisk next to his name for all time.

That's why republicans should go to extraordinary lengths to remove that designation.

Make up new rules. Twist ordinary procedures into pretzels. Use democrat tactics of calling black white and up down. Use the power we have to make things happen.

Democrats rely on us to keep well within the normal boundaries while they pull shit out of left field. It's time to play by their rules - meaning there are no rules.

Do what we want and argue about it later.

158 It does sound silly, but Wawa I the name of a town in PA.

The chain's name comes from the site of the company's first milk plant and corporate headquarters in the Wawa, Pennsylvania area. The name of the town Wawa is in turn derived from the Ojibwe word for the Canada goose (taken from The Song of Hiawatha). An image of a goose in flight serves as the Wawa corporate logo. It is said that the goose was chosen because the company employs the principles of teamwork, group consensus, and encouragement.

Trump is allowed to summon the Congress if it is an "extraordinary occasion." Impeachment is extraordinary. Forcibly reconvene the house and hold them until they deliver their articles to the Senate. This has gone on long enough.

When it's done in the Senate, which should take a day or less, forcibly adjourn both houses and do his recess appointments. This sham of the Senate never closing its session (they leave a senator or two on the floor at all times to pretend like the Senate is in session) also needs to end.

239 Apparently since the Virginia Second Amendment movement got under way there are a lot of strange things happening on the internet. There is very aggressive moderating and deleting, especially on Gun blogs now owned by large corporate sponsors. There is a substantial uptick in this type of activity, like fourfold.

There is also talk of large scale deplatforming by state and local entities next year a la 8Chan for any blog being used for organizing or information dissemination. This will be especially true for large Cloud hosting services like Amazon, Google etc. They will then try to ensure the sites don't pop up somewhere else on the web by denying security like Cloudfare, etc. last step is to co-opt internet backbone services to deny any site they don't like from ever appearing somewhere else.

Scary stuff, and people need to plan around it. They don't like the fact that citizens are organizing in a meaningful way amongst themselves. This is why they want us divided against each other, because together we can trample their tyranny.

287 Illegals have always been counted in the census, and their numbers have always been used for redistricting. It's just that before the last couple of decades, their numbers weren't great enough to make much of a change. Obama stopped asking the citizenship question, but even when it was asked, it was simply informational, it had no effect on apportionment. This is because the Constitution mandates that reapportionment be based on the number of *Persons* inside a State, and specifically *not* Citizens. I think that is one of the great mistakes written into the body of the Constitution from the beginning, but there it is.

314 I saw "Cats" on the stage in a regional production years ago, and I enjoyed it a great deal. Although I don't really remember the music or much of what happened, we were only about 4 rows from the stage, and there was this one chorus line dancer who didn't have any lines, but she had this skin tight full body hugging cat suit on, and she was BUILT! Oh and she worked it harder than anybody else out there! Stayed out front most of the time, I think the stage manager knew what he had. Yeah, that's really all I remember about Cats.

Yes, on-base housing is very secure, but when you're a mom with little ones and the neighbor kid's dad is deployed and the teenager decides to help himself to your stuff, you're stuck in the same situation as someone in a Chicago slum (only with better police response time).

Probably the most foolish thing you could do is post photos of you firearms, especially serial numbers.

People need to remember that Google backs up the internet at least twice a day. Everything you post is captured somewhere. Google then analyzes the data to make associations between people and postings. They can do things like look at a household, who is in it an every single activity that person performed in a day. What you posted, what you bought online, what blogs you posted to, what social media you posted- everything. They do this by looking at email, addresses, login associations IP addresses and other factors. That way the minute you do anything on the web- they know it. They can also further associate your phone with where you go during the day, what time you wake up, how much activity you did, etc. you think it a convenience device, when it's really part of their monitoring tools. Best part- you give it all to them for free.

323 The internet has ruined television for me in some ways.

Hannity (well, his stand-in) came on last night and I only sort of noticed. They got to do their interviews and one of the people on the slot machine display of talking heads was Larry Elder. He was asked a question, answered it briefly, and it was over.

I generally like Larry Elder and was disappointed in the tiny and unsubstantial performance. It wasn't his fault. I have grown accustomed to long-form interviews like are done on the so-called "intellectual dark web" (spit) where the host and guest talk for a half hour or more and there is an opportunity to flesh out ideas and disagreements.

Now that I have access to long-form interview shows with many of these same people, I find the sound-bite form on shows like Hannity annoying to the point that I don't want to consume it.

Hallmark's Don We Now Our Gay Apparel movie

After a decade of working in New York, enduring a series of insincere mostly-physical relationships with other guys, indulging in innumerable self-degrading sessions in the gay bathhouses, Tony suffers severe medical problems (surprise!). He quits his high-paying advertising job and returns to live with his aged mother in a small town in Iowa.

There he gets re-acquainted with a childhood friend, a girl who is about to start 'transitioning' surgery. To both their great surprise, they fall in love.

He realizes his homosexuality was really a consequence of issues with his abusive father. She begins to get therapy for her dysmorphia.

They get married on Christmas Eve, but he dies of complications from AIDS on Christmas morning. It's sad, but they are joyously assured of their new life to come in heaven with Jesus.

Something for everybody.

409 My take, again, is that the longer the Democrats delay sending those articles to the Senate the worse it is for them:
(A) They are shown as gutless cowards with no courage for their convictions.
(2) The dire emergency need to impeach the president to save the country is revealed as the obvious sham it is.
(III) Their rabid insane base gets frustrated and mad at them for not removing the vile monster Trump.
(d) They hand Trump a club to beat them over the head with, one he won't hesitate to use, and one that will have the added benefit of being based in truth.

God, I have never seen such a glorious, magnificent self-hoisting in all of my life. In one motion they just showed everyone that everything they say and believe in is complete bull-squash.

459 I was watching old film interviews with elders, and there was a fellow who'd been a Republican since the party was founded. Before that, he'd voted Whig. I smiled. Whigs!

Democrats can -and I believe will- disappear completely after 2020. Of course, the medusa will grow new heads, but they'll be splintered, smaller, and easier to smash. (It's like using toilet paper - keep wiping until there's no residue.)

468 350, Nick,

House Dems are using impeachment as a way to get Trump's financial records, Mueller's grand jury investigative reports, and force Trump officials to testify under oath like John Bolton, McGahan, etc. They will probably win if the Senate does not hold a trial before the courts get around to ruling.

Holidays slows everything but the Senate should go ahead and deal with in January.

end their run?

472 Redridinghood,
No reason why the friend did it. It was odd from the beginning. She had an infant a few weeks old and a six yo. She dropped her son off at school and then disappeared with the infant. Left her purse, phone, car, diaper bag, etc. behind. Internet speculation is the boyfriend had an affair with the friend at some point. After the baby was born the friend realized she would never get the boyfriend back so got rid of her. The other theory is the boyfriend was in on it and got the friend to do it while he was at work so he'd have an iron clad alibi. All speculation at this point. Just a sad situation no matter why it happened.

Posted by: Warai-otoko at December 20, 2019 09:25 AM (6FeV1)

If a Graham campaigned with Trump it would have been Franklin, who has been running the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association for quite a while now (even before his dad died). Billy was rarely seen in the years before his death, and people went to him instead of him going to them. Anne Graham, one of Franklin's sisters, is an evangelist but keeps out of politics and the other siblings keep pretty low profiles.

She's well. She has developed a taste for peanuts, and has a ritual that works well to produce them on demand. She goes over to the corner below where the peanuts are kept on the kitchen counter, and kneads the carpet below, while purring loudly. If that doesn't produce results in an acceptably timely manner, she starts to meow. If that doesn't prove efficacious, She come over, stands on your leg, and meows loudly that the royal service standards are being disregarded.

489 I don't see anywhere in the Constitution where articles of Impeachment must be delivered to the Senate. It takes 2/3rds of Senate members present to convict according to Article I Section 3 ("And no Person shall be
convicted without the Concurrence of twothirds of the Members
present."). I don't see the Repubs avoiding a vote or 19 or so Repubs going over to the dark side on this, so no chance (Pierre Delicto, Murky Murkowski, and Collins notwithstanding).

At this point I would LOVE to see a Senate Trial, with the Presdent able to bring in a host of friendly and hostile witnesses. I'd like to see Alexandra Chalupa, the Bidens, Comey, Brenan, Clapper, and the rest of the deep-state cast involved in this try to lie their way under oath with Barr and Durham breathing down their necks. Lets see Yovonovitch explain why she helped corruption in Ukraine and prevented witnesses from leaving to talk to the DOJ about what they saw. Giuliani knows, it would be good to have him testify as well. This would be great, even as the MSM ignores it almost it's entirety.

490 Re the murky California spending.
Schools about 15 years ago ran a "Santa Rosa" computer financial records system. Schools everywhere were blowing stop signs and violating spending laws. My Junior College was one of the ones that got caught. Million$$$ of dollars of malfeasance was uncovered. Accreditation agency threatened to pull the rug out....what to do?

Hand slap...a few administrators removed...a few Board member resignations/defeats.

AND a NEW computer record system. $600hr + to effect contractor maintenance on it.
Now the old record system is buried so no history can be accessed. How convienent.

California is broke because it wastes money.
