The Morning Report 9/19/17

EvitaPelosi.jpg

Good morning kids. Today marks the one year anniversary of The Morning Report. I'd like to say that it's been more than a pleasure; it's been an inconvenience. In all seriousness, just wanted to say thanks for making this entertaining. And I'm honored to be allowed to contribute to what I think is the best political/cultural commentary and real news outlet anywhere. Thanks to Ace for the keys and the cob's for the support. Enough of that. We are loaded with linkage this Tuesday so let us commence. First up, Hurricane Maria is threatening Puerto Rico so if we do have an Morons down there, please evacuate or otherwise get to safety.

Top story is PDT's assertion that Obama used the FBI to wiretap him before the election has been confirmed. This includes conversation(s) between him and one-time campaign honcho Paul Manafort who, surprise! may be Scooter Libby-ed by Robert Mueller's kangaroo court. I really wish PDT would just end this friggin' shitshow and get rid of Mueller. And Rod Rosenstein while he's at it. That snake is a Deep State embed/saboteur sneaking whoopee cushions under Deputy Dawg's daybed.

The president is at the UN this week for its annual America/Israel-bashing and shakedown session. This time, however we have a real president who by all indications is going to read the riot act to the Farsis and Whoa, Fat!. On the down side, he seems to be falling into the Mideast Peace processor. Well, this is what happens when you get rid of the realists like Gorka and let the McMustards have your ear. Meh, maybe he's just mouthing platitudes but I don't see that as his style.

In news from the insurrection, Nancy "Different Strokes" Pelosi had to flee her own press conference when the illegal aliens she and her party have used as weapons to destroy us turned their aim on her. It's funny to see frauds like Pelosi who are always controlling these media Potemkin Village pseudo-events look like total fools when they blow up in their faces. They have no one to blame but themselves. After almost two years of portraying Donald Trump as "literally Hitler" the mindless droogs look at Pelosi and Schumer dealing with him as a stab in the back. Good. And with Comrade Bernie threatening to run in 2020 as an independent Commie, anything that divides the dividers is a good thing. Too bad we have no political party to take advantage of that.

In other news, James O'Keefe is teasing a huge expose of the MFM that will result in people getting fired. He and his group do yeoman's work in opening peoples' eyes to what the hell this country has devolved into. Investors Business Daily is cautiously optimistic about the latest block-grant Obamacare repeal/replace but fears that Murkowski might sabotage it at the last minute. There's a very interesting piece about the reaction a lefty writer gets for penning an essay called "The Case For Colonialism" and finally, Toys "R" Us is filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy. That is a huge deal vis a vis e-commerce and the trend in retail, not to mention the fate of over 60,000 employees.

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

    Yeah.

    I have been saying this since the original debt/CR deal. Don't assume that Trump is getting snookered by these guys. Consider the possibility that he snookered them.

    They normalized him. Which helps Trump.

    And hurts them. Because they have been on that train since the election, and it is now derailed.

    ."The report said the secret court that handles the Foreign Intelligence
    Surveillance Act had authorized a surveillance warrant against Manafort
    for an investigation that began in 2014"

    This had nothing to do with Trump or the campaign because he wasn't even running yet. Something stinks on ice here.

    It's a trap! They were setting Trump up for surveillance when they reopened the investigation after they had previously closed it due to lack of evidence.

    32 I don't get the expressions of dismay when Trump lets us down. Did people not expect that? Mind you, I'm not anti-Trump (certainly not #NeverTrump - I don't like self-absorbed assholes), but I do find it hard to understand that some deeply believe(d) in him. That trick never works. Even Washington, Lincoln, and Churchill let their side down sometimes. (Personally, I fit somewhere in the Schlicter-Hanson-Kimball zone of "he's all we got.")

    That said, what I expected was being let down on policy, and to some extent, personnel. But I am a bit baffled by the continued presence of the likes of Mueller and Rosenstein, et al. The fact that Koskinen is still in, and Gorka is out, is not encouraging.

    I wish the times would get less interesting.

    They're upset because the DACA amnesty that is being talked about won't include all the other illegal alien family members, like the parents who either illegally smuggled the DACA "kids" into the U.S., or who paid drug cartels to smuggle them in.

    Frankly, if that's the choice they insist we make, it's a very easy one: none of you. You are all living illegally in this country, you cost U.S. taxpayers far more than you contribute, and you obviously have a nasty attitude of entitlement, as demonstrated by your behavior at this press conference.

    It is where many of us start our day.....though if Deputy Dawg does not wake up, seize control of DOJ and investigate Felonias' various felonies I fear, seriously, that you may need to clear your content with editors(censors) of the State.

    I Wonder if most --even among the hip crowd here--realize exactly what Felonia Inc had/has in store for Ace, The Morning Report, etc,etc,etc.

    Yea, Trump got elected but I don't see him doing ANY thing to construct a seawall to protect his loyal subjects and voters from the supperession of speech after the Donald leaves the scene....e.g. Establishment of an aggressive First Amendment Section of DOJ and going after Campus Inc and their current Nazi tactics. ..

    But we are kicking Ms-13's ass.

    Depth Dawg is a beat cop....he dont know nothing about birthin no political corruption investigations.

    I am of the attitude, when it comes to virtually anything and everything in this world, if you notice something being repeated over and over, you just have to come to believe that's how it is. You're not MOVING to something else, this is what you do!

    In other words, the process of peace processing is the reality of its existence. Of COURSE it's not moving toward peace, it's not supposed to move toward peace. It's what we do. We peace process.

    While I understand they don't need to see him if they had found anything in that raid in July he would have been indicted by now if they had any evidence. He is trying to strong arm manafort and get him to roll.

    I've argued for years that there should be a return to colonialism, however I would like to see it more privatized.

    Ultra-high wealth individuals should adopt a third world shithole as a hobby and a means of showcasing their wealth and ideas for society. There would be a competition of sorts between them to see which country could be integrated into the 21st century.

    104 It has been amusing to watch Canada's Boy Wonder Justin Trudeau "evolve" on his immigration position.

    He went from "come on in, everybody is welcome in Canada" to "hey, we don't want any economic migrants here, and anybody else who comes here must obey our immigration laws."

    All that bullshit about how "diversity is our strength" suddenly doesn't feel so good when thousands of poor, unemployed and unskilled Haitians are streaming across Justin's border, trying to replace their American welfare payments with Canadian welfare payments. Or when carloads full of sketchy-looking middle eastern types are strolling across the border, with vague claims of trouble in their homelands.

    Trudeau should have learned a lesson from Merkel's folly: if you invite them, they will come. Hordes of them. And they will cost you and your society more than you ever imagined.

    Damnit! I was just reading an account yesterday that said the merchant vessel make a hard turn to starboard ten minutes before the collision, and the Fitzgerald was hit on the starboard side. This means the Fitzgerald was crossing ahead of the merchant vessel. The merchant vessel turning to starboard put the two ships on a collision course.

    In a crossing situation, you normally would alter course to pass astern of the crossing ship, or slow and allow the crossing vessel to clear your path.

    The one account where I read this is being buried by news reports that make no mention of the merchant ship altering course to starboard, and my google fu won't bring it up again. The Fitzgerald was clear ahead and the merchant vessel caused the collision, if that one account is true.

    This is why I take a neutral view of what Trump is doing right now. He came out the gates at a full sprint, and they have used all the weapons at their disposal to slow him down.

    They've laid gloves on him. He's wounded and hurting, but still fighting. I don't trust anyone who has been in Washington more than, say five years. Anyone there that long is part of the machine, and they control so much of it, it's impossible for Trump to change any of it by himself, especially when his greatest tactical error seems to have been allowing them to surround him with their own plants.

    Tucker had a strident DREAMER on his show last night and he once again demonstrated how is is superior to all other host by asking the gut spouting hs canned demands/talking points "Wait --- are you threatening me /us]?

    We shouldn't tell them. Then they'll change tactics to make themselves appear more palatable to the American people.

    Remember the last amnesty go-round, when the illegals were marching in the streets with their Mexican and El Salvadoran flags? Americans didn't like it. Here were hordes of illegal aliens, who for years had been living illegally in the U.S. and taking advantage of American taxpayers, and now they were marching in our streets demanding that their lawlessness be rewarded with even more rights and privileges, while waving their foreign flags in our faces.

    La Raza saw that the optics were hurting the illegals' cause, so they sent out the memo to carry only U.S. flags going forward. However, you still always saw at least one or two foreign flags in every march; some of the illegals are so deeply hostile to the U.S. that they won't obey their handlers, even when it's clear that it's doing injury to their cause.

    So I say let these a-holes show America how entitled they feel. Keep making those threats, amigo!

    Well hell, rig fenders and come along side.

    What I am about to say is not to be taken as insult, but a sharing of my experiences and viewpoints from a little over thirty years in a Sea Duty intensive rate, much like BM is.

    When Minimum Manning collided with the beginnings of the social experimenting which was being dictated from above, it began to pull at the professional training which knit the seagoing Navy into one of the most professional Navies in the world.

    As technological advances which looked over the shoulder of, and kept a Nav Team out of trouble became the relied upon route, instead of a back up, things began to go south.

    When the training day became more about Military Rights, instead of Military Rights and Responsibilities, it continued south.

    When the events in 7th Fleet leading to the Fat Leonard investigation became known, it was a clear indicator of a leadership chain which had slipped its moral moorings, and was dangerously adrift.

    I am sad to say that absolutely nothing which you, or I experienced in past years compares to the climate today.

    to stay in the Military at any of the Commands I was at both Active Duty "

    Oddly enough, I had a junior Sailor who self identified as not being focused on assigned tasks.

    His distractor was the planning which he was going through to kill 10 individuals who were were on his list of people to take out on the command.

    Emergency Psych eval came back with "Just acting out, he'll be fine"

    Suicided several years later.

    .There were actually had Schools for that stuff back in the day. Way back when not everyone who came in was assigned a Rate and a School. About one third of the Navy Enlisted intake was non designated and they went to Apprentice Training after Boot Camp. They were split into three groups, Seaman, Fireman and Airman.

    IIRC is was three or four weeks on the basics.

    For the SN it was basic shipboard stuff like watch standing, Damage Control and fire fighting. For the FN it was Black Gang stuff and for the Airman it was all about the flight deck.

    They went to the Fleet with at least the basics to survive and actually be somewhat productive.

    203 " Seamanship is not hard as a subject, just as a discipline. "

    You hit it on the head with the comment about being a discipline.

    A lot of these young Sailors come out of GLakes, and training ready to succeed.

    They don't know what they lack, but are for the most part, highly motivated, and blindly trust those who are placed in their Chain of Command to be likewise.

    But when complacency, and long term exhaustion sets in, only discipline prevents one from accepting short cuts, because nothing bad has happened so far.

    We learned many a lesson by paying the price of blood and lives in the past.
    And unfortunately, some of those lessons are coming up for renewal.

    They do more than that, unless you consider things like sex-segregated bathrooms and sports a privilege.

    TERFs are feminists who are still coherent enough to see how transgenders eliminate everything feminism established (back when there were still legit battles, not whining about mansplaining). If anyone who puts on a dress, or heck, simply says, "Today, right now, I identify as a woman!" = a woman than there is no value of being a woman, no real distinction.

    They did this to themselves - feminism wanted to blur these distinctions, worked hard to devalue what makes women ub=nique (childbearing) and this is the unfortunate result. Sad.

IT'S A PRESIDENT WHO FAILS TO ACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE."

    How sensitive to the people who had loved ones die or lose their homes!. Then the ad says "It's science and talky about Trump pulling out of the Paris accord." Because gee- being in the Paris accord would have stopped Harvey and Irma.

    260 The Colonialism dust-up is pretty interesting.

    I had a discussion with someone along a similar line about nothing in particular. Essentially I asked my friend, at what point are you far enough away from an issue that it is acceptable to discuss it from a purely objective position and at what point are the ramifications of a particular action truly realized.

    Of course the spark for this conversation had a bit to do with the retrospective views of historical landmarks/statues and their villification, but the same mentality can be applied to simple ideas and discussions as well.

    I pondered that, in spite of slavery's overwhelmingly negative ramifications, would there ever come a time when anthropologists would be able to measure the the impact of slavery in any other fashion other than the negative impacts without being burned at the stake. Will it ever be possible to study the advancement of African culture and modernism as an unintended positive impact of slavery and its subsequent abolition.

    As an example, a dissertation might study the economic and life expectancy of the descendants of slaves in America compared to those whose genealogy was left untouched by slavery as a population study.

    Of course we both laughed at the notion that one could ever publish such a paper without receiving public and social admonishment and enjoyed another glass of George Dickel 12 year.

    While we are all bemoaning the traitorous obstructionism of the GOP and how it could lead to doom in 2018, the bigger news to me is the disintegration of the Democrat Party. The radical and now violent and openly espoused anti-Americanism of its cadres and constituents understands that all this time they were essentially political props to be used and discarded by the likes of Pelosi and Schumer. Those chickens are now "woke" and coming home to roost.

Her friends can see her thoughts, and then she shuts the thoughts down and there's the famous headline "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" If i had any money and could go. I would like to meet the Horde people there but I've loathe that marketing thing in which a lack of moral responsibility is encouraged because supposedly nobody will ever know.

    Now, name one story of a impending scandal or a rumor they've published about Trump that's proven out.

    There isn't one.

    That was a planted story by Mueller:
    1) In an attempt to flush out (what they think is prey)
    2) In an attempt to keep the lie alive (and justify their continuance)

    That's it.

    Not one damned person put their name out--on the record--as saying there's grounds for indictment.

    No, all it is is a lie planted with the NYT, they then repeat the lie to "experts" hostile to Trump, who freely expand and expand upon the lie, dressing up the facade until we get to the leftie wet dream of a frog march.

    How do I know?

    Read the first paragraph.
    Drug dealers, convicted drug dealers, have gotten better press at the NYT.

    And--scour the article from top to bottom--no crime, no actual crime whatsoever, is even alleged.

    The environment now, perhaps even more so in academic circles, trends towards "No, you aren't allowed to argue (unpopular position) from an objective position."

    None of those words (as used by him to describe himself) means what he supposes he means. Self-contradictory from the outset.

    Yeah, if he was truly intersex, that's something they take care of at an early age. See, Curtis, Jamie Lee.

    So, all of this is mental illness fantasy.

    327 "Damnit! I was just reading an account yesterday that said the merchant vessel make a hard turn to starboard ten minutes before the collision, and the Fitzgerald was hit on the starboard side."

    I saw something to that effect too - BUT - apparently the evidence for that comes from the radar tracking of the ship. Problem: the exact timing of everything is still in question, so it's possible the sharp course change happened BECAUSE of the collision, and not before the collision. In which case it is meaningless.

    I don't know, apparently nobody knows, unless they have access to the Navy's on board records. You know those showed what went wrong instantly.

    329 I just saw an ad for Vegas where some woman is fantasizing about what she did there which included a hook up with guy she just met. Her friends can see her thoughts, and then she shuts the thoughts down and there's the famous headline "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" If i had any money and could go. I would like to meet the Horde people there but I've loathe that marketing thing in which a lack of moral responsibility is encouraged because supposedly nobody will ever know.

    Honestly, having been to Vegas on more than one occasion, the reputation exceeds it and Vegas tourism does everything it can to perpetuate that mystique.

    I generally believe most people's Vegas tales to run parallel to fishermen's stories, barstool golf handicaps, high freshmen boys sexual exploit stories and servers discussing their tips with each other. Which is to say, they are rather exaggerated.

    The Strip is truly a modern wonder of entertainment and can definitely be enjoyed for purer purposes. I would say, however, that if you don't enjoy a cocktail and a little blackjack that there are vastly superior destinations.

    330 The story about "Scout" the non-binary, whatever student at GA Tech who wanted to go out by cop suicide, is pathetic. Seems the parents when along with xis lunacy and xe ("they" he preferred) had attempted suicide twice before. Xe called 911 and said their was someone roaming campus with a knife and a gun. Left two suicide notes in xis room.

    And of course, the usual progs turn out to burn and riot.

    We have friends (and husband's family members) whose children attend tech to get engineering degrees, not study social engineering.
