The Morning Report — 3/24/23

sovamexculp.jpg

Good morning kids. So, Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants was dragged out for some event -- correction: the 13th anniversary of Obamacare and Death Panels! --where, as he was hugging a baby (which is funny because if his deep Catholic convictions aren't killing them in utero his hands and proboscis are simultaneously sniffing their hair and groping their training bras), another one was crying in the background. To which the depraved criminal pervert assured the group:

“It’s OK, it’s all right. In fact, I like babies better than people.”

You know who else liked babies, and dogs, better than people? Somewhere up in Heaven, Yogi Berra and Samuel Goldwyn are throwing up.

So, while arguably the most corrupt individual to ever hold office in American politics (legitimately elected or otherwise) who sold out to every criminal and thug including this nation's mortal enemies for over 50 years vomits up division, hatred and lies between gobs of Maypo, bile and halitosis, the non-case against his polar opposite in every way, Donald Trump, is seemingly falling apart.

That’s right. No indictment. No handcuffs. No perp walk. The radical left has been yearning for this moment for years. And for a few days, it seemed like that wish might finally come true. However, it now appears to be just another chapter in a never-ending fantasy that always falls short of becoming a reality.

The first hint that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment of Trump was going sour was when former Michael Cohen legal advisor Robert Costello appeared as a surprise witness on Monday. Trump touted Costello’s testimony as conclusive and irrefutable evidence of his innocence. And he may not have been exaggerating.

It sure does look like Costello’s testimony, along with the evidence he presented — a five-year-old letter from Michael Cohen’s attorney affirming that Cohen made the payment to Stormy Daniels alone and that Trump had no role in reimbursing him — had a significant impact on Bragg’s case against Trump. This impact was so substantial that the Manhattan grand jury did not assemble on Wednesday, and while they did meet on Thursday, they did not hear the case involving Trump, postponing the alleged indictment to at least next week. However, it remains doubtful that the indictment will occur at all . . .

. . . Legal experts from both sides of the political aisle have highlighted the frailty of Bragg’s case. Bragg was most certainly aware of this fact, too. Perhaps he didn’t care because he was too eager to become a hero to the radical left and advance his career. Or maybe his Trump Derangement Syndrome blinded him to the fact that he had a weak case. Ironically, the only person who stands to benefit from this situation is Trump.

The anticipation of an imminent indictment in New York has led to a surge in donations for Trump. According to reports, his campaign raked in $1.5 million in the three days after Trump announced on Truth Social that he expected to be arrested on Tuesday.

Anything can happen, of course, but I’m confident that Bragg’s case blew up in his face and the case that the left thought would be Trump’s downfall only made him stronger.

For the benefit of those who have similar recent Ivy League degrees like Bragg or who get their news from CNN, Donald Trump did not commit any crime he entered into a legal, non-disclosure agreement with the skank-in-question years ago. But of course, what does the law mean to those who only use their positions of authority within the system to persecute political enemies? If everything that we have been through since 2020 and really going back to the Obama reign of error (and let's face it; this is his third term), doesn't convince you that America as it was or as we had thought it was has ceased to be, then the use of the law as a political weapon of repression is proof positive.

Psaki-psircling to Bragg, a toxic mix of Marxism, Trump derangement and plain rank incompetence despite the Harvard Law degree (affirmative action by any other name would be DEI/D-I-E) courses through his sclerotic veins; the central theme of his campaign for Manhattan DA was indicting and convicting Donald Trump. Kind of funny considering his attitude about real crime and criminals, as Daniel Greenfield shows us:

When Bragg took office, he released a Day One memo which told prosecutors not to pursue prison sentences for many crimes including armed robberies and not to ask for life sentences.

As a result of his pro-crime guidelines, more than half of felony cases were downgraded to misdemeanors. Felony convictions fell from 68% to 51%, misdemeanor convictions from 53% to 29% and very few of those ever saw prison. Bragg’s pro-crime prosecutorial pipeline turned felonies into misdemeanors and then the offenders never served a day in prison.

Murders rose 10%, aggravated assaults were up 11% and robberies shot up 25%

Bragg justified his pro-crime policies by arguing that he was trying to use resources more efficiently. He claimed that his Day One memo refusing to prosecute many crimes was about freeing up “prosecutorial resources”. When Bragg’s office dropped most of the charges against a serial shoplifter, they claimed it would have been a “waste of resources” to go forward.

What was Bragg really focusing on?

In 2022, even as violent crimes shot up and the Manhattan DA’s office claimed that it wasn’t prosecuting criminals because it was shorthanded, it hired Matthew Colangelo, a former Biden DOJ appointee and Sotomayor clerk who had headed over to the New York State Attorney General’s office to go after Trump. Colangelo’s current salary isn’t listed, but he was earning $203,000 at the federal level and isn’t likely to have taken a pay cut to work for Bragg.

“Matthew Colangelo brings a wealth of economic justice experience combined with complex white-collar investigations, and he has the sound judgment and integrity needed to pursue justice against powerful people,” Bragg bragged. It was no secret whom Bragg had in mind . . .

. . . While Bragg hired a legal hit man to go after Trump, crime victims were mourning as their attackers were cut loose because the Manhattan DA’s office claimed not to have the resources . . . Bragg didn’t have enough resources to help crime victims, but plenty to go after Trump. . . Soros DAs consider criminals to be victims and those who defend themselves to be criminals. . .

. . . An extra 50 people were killed in Manhattan on Bragg’s watch. How many of those people really had to die?

An extra 159 women were raped.

An extra 3,524 people were robbed.

An extra 4,197 people were assaulted.

How much of that could have been prevented if Bragg had focused his “prosecutorial resources” on pursuing criminals, instead of giving perps a pass, while focusing on political crimes?

Bragg’s war against former President Trump is fully consistent with his attitude. DA Alvin Bragg is out to redeem a year of criminal terror with a Trump arrest. And if New Yorkers had to die, be beaten, robbed and raped to make it happen, that’s a small price to pay.

As an aside, the prediction (and believe me, you didn't have to be the mashup of Kreskin and Nostradamus to see this coming) of who might replace the ousted Lori Lightfoot in Chicago would be laughable, were it not so horribly tragic.

When Donald Trump stated "They're not after me, they're after you. I'm just standing in the way" he was dead on. Besides the pseudo-organized/loose black-clad Brownshirts of Antifa and BLM, the unleashing of hardened criminals on the public is every bit a weapon of state-sponsored political anarcho-terrorism as the aforementioned groups along with the weaponized arms of the bureaucracy in the DOJ/FBI, the ATF, the intelligence agencies, the IRS and quite probably all the other agencies, even if they have nothing to do with law enforcement or national security.

While Matt Margolis up top is kind of giddy and having a schaden-boner about the non-case against Trump falling apart, friend and prolific author extraordinaire Robert Spencer is not so sanguine:

[CNN host Van] Jones said sensibly on Monday, “If anybody is a Republican and they had been afraid there is some well-organized conspiracy among progressives, they can relax now, because you would not start with this charge.” Indeed, because as even the New York Times conceded on March 9, Bragg’s case is long on partisan hatred and notably bereft of substance. “Hush money is not inherently illegal,” the Times admitted, and then suggest a way that the case could be made stronger: “the prosecutors could argue that the $130,000 payout effectively became an improper donation to Mr. Trump’s campaign, under the theory that because the money silenced Ms. Daniels, it benefited his candidacy.” Well, all right, but that’s a stretch. Big corporations, as well as wealthy individuals, make nuisance payouts regularly, and no one is perp-walked for them. . .

. . . Leftists jumped to rake Jones over the coals for daring to dissent. American Leftists have never been more censorious and intolerant of opposing views, and so Jones didn’t exactly pick a good time to show himself to be an independent thinker. Attorney and Fortune 500 speaker Exavier Pope tweeted: “Van Jones is not a serious person and should not be taken seriously. A sentient corn on the cob.” . . .

. . . Former Bernie Sanders surrogate Jonathan Tasini went for the sharp edge: “Evergreen reminder: Van Jones only cares about Van Jones.”

Maybe he does. But it’s noteworthy how contemporary Leftists treat disagreement. The rage at Jones only underscores how unlikely it is that Bragg will back away from the ledge. He doesn’t want to face the wrath of his fellow Leftists.

Bingo. And again, Bragg ran on the platform of nailing Trump. While there are indications that the grand jury, hopefully to its credit, is recognizing the complete bullshit nature of the charges, the idea of Trump getting a fair trial in NYC, or DC or any other area of Leftist dominant influence is my proverbial pipe dream, wrapped in an LSD trip inside a drunken stupor. Meh, somehow Kyle Rittenhouse got away with the heinous crime of self-defense while preventing a mostly peaceful riot, so anything is possible but I would not hold my breath. If they're railing against Van Jones for a flash of rationality and reasonableness (despite his other bullshit that Spencer notes in his essay), what do you think their reaction will be if, or please God, when Bragg drops the case?

These are the same people that have fantasized for seven years of literally killing Donald Trump. And that ladies and gents is my big fear. Look what these bastards running our country (mostly into the ground) have been willing to do to maintain and increase their hold on power. And in just the past two to three years alone.

Donald Trump has been equated as "literally Hitler," not just by whippet-huffing Cheeto-munching Molotov cocktail-brewing wastes of life in mom's basement somewhere in Portland but by the highest levels of this government. Look back to last Labor Day and Joey Schickel-sniffer's Leni Riefenstahl speech at Independence Hall that basically called for the extermination of Trump, Trumpism and everyone who supports him and really his beliefs and policies.

Trump is going to get it. One way or another. And, worthy of repeating, "They're not after me, they're after you. I'm just in the way."

Have a great weekend, and see you tomorrow for the hobby thread. Be there. Aloha.

Or this was the point. I don't subscribe to 12-D chess theories, but if you *wanted* to strengthen Trump's fundraising and give him some lead in the coming primary battle, this would be a great way to do it.

But that means either that Trump is a patsy who doesn't know he's being helped or that Trump is in on the scheme and playing his part, and that the establishment government prefers Trump as the front-runner. I doubt any of those are true. To some degree the establishment might want Trump because they know how to manage him, but this would be a tremendously risky move regardless. I don't buy that theory, I don't think. I think malicious stupidity is an easier explanation.

Nope, it was Dem heat and Repub indifference. If they could have had a "riot" in NYC over the possibility of the event, arresting 1000 more followers, then a speech about Trump "making NYC unsafe" would have happened and the grand jury would have given in and indicted and we'd have 2 more years of this video hanging over Repubs, and this time it would be real (so they could move on from the fantasy of J6 to an actual reality).

Thankfully, Repubs/non-Uniparty are smarter than Dems and didn't give them yet another election issue on a silver platter.

Instead, now we'll be looking at a possible indictment somewhere else in the midst of the nominating calendar 2024 or possibly at the R convention or just prior if Trump is the nominee.

Straw man. Some people do think there's an organized conspiracy in general. There isn't. There are some organized specific conspiracies (Spygate was one such), but there is no general conspiracy among progs. It is just that progs control every lever of power and all want more or less the same things from the standpoint of an outsider looking in. That can *look* like a conspiracy in fact, but it isn't. It's just a bunch of aligned people at every level. That they all move approximately the same direction isn't surprising, nor does it require planning.

These are the fruits of the long march. The long march was a conspiracy of sorts in specific institutions, but the payoff is that conspiracies are no longer necessary outside of specific actions and sometimes not at all.

While it's still possible Trump will be arraigned and may/ may not show up for some failure theater I never really thought this thing would go anywhere.

Word leaked out of NYC DA's office about an "arrest" and Trump was on social media proclaiming in all caps he was going to be arrested.

I read yesterday that New York State law "suspends" the clock on SOL issues if the person in quesiton leaves NY and restarts the clock if/when they come back to the state. Additionally, the ex Governor added a line in his emergency covid deceleration that reset the SOL clock yet again during covid.


So it appears that any issues regarding SOL in this case do not apply.


I will try to find that article again and post a link.

It probably is, but some things give me pause. All of them are practical problems, but not all of them are necessarily meaningful.

1st, every country that has tried to go digital-only has failed. Not even Sweden or Hong Kong managed to accomplish it when they tried.

2nd, there are lots of dollars out in the world, outside our borders. If those dollars can't repatriate, they have no value because they can't be effectively cleared. Switching to digital-only would cause a catastrophic value disruption in the USD because it would orphan so much currency held in foreign lands. It might even cause a total monetary collapse.

3rd, our government pays for a lot of sketchy and evil shit with pallets of $100 bills. No paper trail, no accountability. They pay for a lot of criminality with cash money and that ability vanishes if this happens, in part due to point 2. They could switch to gold or something, I guess, but it makes sinister American payoffs and corruption much harder.

Not that they won't try it, but the odds of failure are high.

||The United States will on Friday rename the Fort Pickett military base in Virginia to honor an American soldier decorated for heroism during World War II instead of a general who fought for the pro-slavery breakaway Confederacy.

The 41,000-acre Virginia National Guard installation near the town of Blackstone is the first of nine American military bases slated to drop the names of figures who served the Confederate States of America, the group of southern states that seceded from the Union and were defeated in the 1861-1865 US Civil War.

The base will be renamed to honor Van Barfoot, a US soldier who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam and reached the rank of colonel.

Barfoot received the Medal of Honor — the nation’s highest military award for valor — for actions including taking out two German machine gun nests, capturing 17 enemy soldiers, destroying a tank and an artillery piece and aiding wounded troops in Italy in 1944.||

Appeals court blocks Biden vaccine mandate for government workers
Trump-appointed District Judge Jeffrey Brown initially blocked the order in January.

A federal appeals court on Thursday blocked President Joe Biden's order that federal employees receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

The administration had argued that the president was akin to CEO managing a private corporation and therefore held the authority to require employees to get vaccinated, according to the Associated Press.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, however, disagreed and reversed the decision of a panel that had sided with the administration. That panel included three judges from the Fifth Circuit, two of whom favored the government's argument. The full appeals court, a group of sixteen judges, ruled Thursday.

2020 Judicial Watch study found that 353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens. Notably, the study also identified eight states showing statewide registration rates exceeding 100 percent. Seven of the eight states are ERIC members: Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Rhode Island, and Vermont. For example, 40 out of 64 Colorado counties have more registered voters than eligible residents, and Colorado has been a member of ERIC for 10 years.

128 Did ‘Woke’ Banking Trigger America’s Banking Crisis?
++++
No, it didn't. Woke shit doesn't help and likely prevents better people from being in charge and does result in a lot of wasted money, but it is not triggering a banking crisis.

15 years of zero interest rate policy and the ecstatic excess of money printing during COVID did. The central banks have lost control and we're seeing dangerous levels of inflation as a result. That *must* be brought under control, and all of that spells doom for asset values. Interest rate increases harm the asset values of various securities. The Fed selling off its vast portfolio of assets will harm the asset values of those security classes. Having to offset continued deficit spending will require more of the same, so that the value the government is wasting can be extracted from the current economy rather than the future economy.

Risk management is suddenly - very suddenly - important again, as is survival in a rising interest rate environment. This hasn't been true for decades and risk managers don't know how to deal with it. The transition will be very rough.

I don't know if it's ERIC-related or not, but I noticed a significant decline in roll validation in the period since CO went to cheat-by-mail.

In the 2020 election - my last there - I got *five* ballots in the mail. Three of them were mine, with different variations of my name as used in various government forums (Joseph Mannix, Joseph R Mannix, Joseph Reginald Mannix). Only my full legal name was used for the registration *I* did. The other two came from ... somewhere else. My guess is automatic cross-registration from other government systems.

The other two were for former occupants of my apartment. I had been living there for more than a decade, but that was the first year I got ballots for prior occupants. Those names came out of the ether in 2020.

There is around 33% more cash floating from the COVID spending. It is almost $5 T. We know from good Mr Smith that natural rent and interest seems to settle in around 5 to 6% and that both capital and and land need to return that rate or better. He also explain that the free money (1 example was the gold from New World in Spain) would be absorbed into the economy via inflation until wages and prices and goods were valued a somewhat stable prices.
In our case, we will need 5 to 6 years of 6% inflation.

Posted by: We Didn't Start the Fire
______________
Republicans, specifically the GOP never fights unless it's a political cause that would cost them money. Even then it's doubtful there'd be a majority. They are all "company men" pulling in a handsome paycheck, getting fed top tier food and chauffeured to every event they attend.

Those people don't "fight." Ever.

191 They'd rather be in the minority with the "right kind" than in the majority with the wrong.

You've got it. Spot on. Well said. I see you lived through the Tea Party Wave as well.

Which is why I'd rather DeSantis stay in Florida. The only way I can possibly see a "take back" of the GOP is at the state level. I think DeSantis could do much more good that way than running for President. Because, as you say, the only way he can get national GOP support is to be a GOP man. But he's proven - at least in Florida - that Republicans there are in the mood to fight.

Saw a pleasant video this morning of DA Bragg getting out of a limo on the courthouse side of the car. Barriers set up. A number of police standing guard in the approximately 10 feet from the vehicle to the court house doors, probably a rear entrance.

Hitchcock made over 50 films, and there's a lot that connects Vertigo to a lot of his other films. It's very different in tone from his most popular stuff, though. North by Northwest is a brash spy adventure, which feels very different from the earnest and surreal melodrama.

You want something that feels really different? Under Capricorn.

He said he doesn't know what goes into paying hush money to someone.

Really Ron? Huh...

Well, you were a congressman for 6 years, congress has established a slush fund to pay hush money to the victims of their improprieties, you know this Ron.

I'm sure people in congress talk and whisper to each other, so he knows the score on how someone goes about paying hush money.

Say Ron, why did you quit congress...

DeSantis ran and got reelected 3 times to the HoR. IIRC in 2015 he was eyeing Rubio's seat in the Senate while Rubio made an ill fated attempt to run for President against Trump. When that failed, DeSantis decided against a Senate run and instead in 2018 ran for governor... barely winning over the weirdo crackhead.

I am begging - begging - any college male tennis player to put an end to this farce by declaring yourself trans & playing/easily winning women’s pro tennis tournaments. All it will take is one biological male to win women’s Wimbledon, French Open, etc for this disgrace to end.

Long ago and far away...when the Williams Sisters were in their tennis-playing prime, they were in Australia and I guess started believing their hype,

And, I'm not sure exactly how it started but they wound up challenging a reasonably ranked Aussie male to back to back games of tennis the next morning.

The Aussie male tennis player, just to put a point on things, spent the whole night before drinking in a bar, wandered out of the bar a wee bit blotto, and played the Williams sisters one after another.

He slaughtered them. It wasn't even close. He won all there by a large margin.

Games over, the Aussie went back to the bar for more drinking.

As you can imagine, this little episode didn't get much press here in the US.

257 Remember the left likes to use the formulation "if it saves one life"...well removing Bragg will save more then one won't it?

There you go twisting the meaning of what a Leftist says.

The statement is: ". . . An extra 50 people were killed in Manhattan on Bragg’s watch"

When the Left says "saves one life" that is all they mean - just one life. Fifty is not One. If they meant "one or more lives" they would have said that.

Killing fifty people is totally fine. They just want to limit the environment that merely takes one life.

I suspect that we'll get to see how much actual women are willing to put up with women's sports going away.

Supposedly women's sports were a big thing from the 60s until now but more and more its just becoming a venue for trannies to win.

And there is a second problem with this for women...there were always jokes about lesbians being in women's sports but now the face of women's sports is...a tranny. That's going to scare even more women away...

I like what DeSantis is doing at the state level but people are putting sh*t in his head that he needs to run now.

There is no rationale for a DeSantis run in 24, NONE.

Especially when Trump is still on the field of battle.

Ron's shadow campaign is what's creating the tension, no Trump.

If Ron wants to run against Trump he needs to nut up and declare.

I look forward to seeing him on the debate stage saying, I'm going to do everything Trump did except betterer and smarterer through the sheer will of my Harvard/Yale/MIC trained MIIYYND.

(1) Changing the process of selecting judges, so as to give the governing coalition of the Knesset a majority in the judicial selection committee; (2) Prohibiting the Supreme Court from making decisions based "on reasonability" rather than on laws passed by the Knesset; (3) Changing legal opinions of general counsels of government departments, appointed by the attorney general, from binding to advisory; (4) Raising the standard for the Supreme Court to strike down a law passed by the Knesset to 11 out of the 15 judges; and (5) Providing the Knesset the capacity to override a decision by the Supreme Court that strikes down a law passed by the Knesset with a majority of the Knesset members.

297 Good morning, everyone, and thank you, J.J.

Well if I didn't know better, after listening to and reading the MSM news, I'd almost swear Alvin was a victim for doing his job and George (& Family) for being good people. There was money but that was for the national racial justice group, Color of Change, which backed Alvin's DA campaign & later pressured him on an unrelated - not Trump - prosecution. The good Democrats and 'outside experts' (like it & think AoSHQs should grab onto that designation, too) often say, when George & his non-profits are named by the Republicians and their ilk, it's antisemitism.

But as Alvin is redeemed in NYC, the Georgia case against PDT simmers and, in Stacy Abram's backyard, could it get much better?!

I'll be including Trump, Kyrsten Sinema, and that warhawk Joe be personally kept away from ordering airstrikes in my thoughts & prayers. PS - Van Jones is an interesting guy. He's stepped out before and he'll be ok, and not just because he's 'family.' (His ex-wife is the niece of a former U. S. President, Jimmy Carter.)

299 "There is no rationale for a DeSantis run in 24, NONE."

I can think of one rationale

1) create hatred that divides the GOP, We've seen it on this very forum. And Ace is a pro - he has good experience on how to manage this threat, but its still causing stress, like we're at DefCon 2 or something. So imagine how those with less skill and wisdom would handle this - each side launching their second strike just to make the rubble bounce.

It's already bad at Instapundit - so easy for NeverTrumpers to pose as righteous DeSantis supporters and attack Trump supporters. After 2 years of being attacked by them I find I have a hatred for DeSantis. I know its not fair or logical, so I grimace and put it aside when I speak of DeSantis.

If I volunteered to make rally signs, most the room would pick up on something and erupt with nervous laughter. Ace would be like: "Nah that's okay Fen, I don't want you anywhere near a Red Sharpie. Go help in the kitchen"
