The Morning Report 2/12/18

drone.jpg

Good morning kids. A new week and up front is an international situation that is rapidly developing. No, not the Korean peninsula which we'll get to a in a bit but the Middle East. Iran has been fighting a proxy war with Israel as well as the US for nearly 40 years since the second-worst president in our history allowed what once was a modern, pro-western ally to turn into a totalitarian Dark Ages throwback. And with modern weapons and technology that are getting more sophisticated and dangerous. Apparently, an Iranian stealth drone launched from Syria entered Israeli airspace, prompting a massive retaliatory response by Israel. One IAF F-16 was forced or shot down, a rare occurrence indeed, and taken together with the appearance of this Achmedina-drone, despite its crude knock-off nature, and the alarm bells are going off. Recall that in 2011 a US stealth drone veered off course and crashed just across the Afghan border inside Iran. But Obama refused to allow the Pentagon to launch an operation to destroy it, and so it wound up intact in the hands of the Iranians. In any case, considering the massive level of the Israeli response to the drone and to the downing of one of its aircraft, no doubt the Iranians will respond in kind. Hold onto your falafels.

Back here in the States, the President is rolling out a $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan on the heels of signing that 2-year budget deal on Friday. I'm not going to panic (yet) but considering that Planned Parenthood was fully funded, Obamacare was not fully repealed (yet again) and shifting back to infrastructure, the GOP is floating the idea of a gasoline tax to pay for it, I'm not exactly filled with strength and confidence. There are some who say the American people as a whole are now fully on board with big government, to one extent or another, and to try and shrink it or at least make the case for same is a fool's errand. To which, I can only say that we have perhaps the best if not last opportunity to sell that message in the form of Donald Trump. Yes, I get that he's not ideologically conservative but he lives his life that way because that is the nature of conservatism; it's a way of life and not an ideology. If for no other reason than to restore fiscal responsibility is the fact that its the money and the spending and the social engineering that feeds and grows the Deep State, the very same Deep State that has given us Comey, Mueller, Strzok, Page, Rosenpenis, Yates, Lerner, Koskinen etc. etc.

And then there's the Amnesty/Immigration issue. We all know the score there. Son-of-Gang-of-8 is being floated but the President has already called that a non-starter. In any case, as with the budget, infrastructure and all the rest, the GOP - especially the Senate - is once again turning into PDT's biggest opponent. So far, it seems as if the Democrat-Left base is, unintentionally, our best ally insofar as they are opposing any sort of deal but for their own reasons which to say the least are not in keeping with ours. Well, at least Hillary Clinton will never be President of the United States of America, and I mean that both sincerely and sarcastically given the aforementioned.

Speaking of Clinton, the Clinton Dossier and Obama-gate, we have several links dealing with that continuing madness. First, PDT correctly tweeted that Schiff-for-brains' 10-page counter "meme-o" was intentionally crafted so as to force the former to reject its release, and the Dems are squealing for being called out on it. Meanwhile Devin Nunes has launched his own website in order to counter the smears and lies hurled at him from all directions. Good for him.

Meanwhile, as the media fawns all over Sister of Whoa, Fat!, it turns out that she's Josef Goebbels north of the 38th Parallel. If only NBC consulted with her before their idiot analyst inserted his foot into his mouth and insulted Koreans everywhere.

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

As I said yesterday the only thing I am for in this plan is loosening the red tape for States to do their own stuff. I am against everything else in this plan. And the "crumbling infrastructure" myth is a lie created by the Obamanites to get some more tax and spend and 99% of it would have went to socialism, not infrastructure.

There's a theory that explains everything our media does... 1 simple rule:

They ALWAYS cheer for the underdog.

Even though North Korea is working on nuking millions of Americans, they are the underdogs. Sure they're gonna get nuked in retaliation back to the stone age, then the media will -- after appropriate waiting period -- call our retaliation 'disproportionate' or some such.

They're vile scum... and I'll stop now before going full D-Lamp.

48 That's a whole lotta depressing commentary right 'chere. Whatever happened to Trump's $1 trillion proposal for infrastructure? It jumped $500 billion in just a week, unless my memory is faulty. Whether or not the public is yearning for massive gov't or not, who knows. But just as sure as night follows day...I have zero doubt that our federal leviathan will never go back to Constitutional limited gov't, no matter who we elect. It's just not going to happen. Our debt will continue to balloon until it can't balloon anymore.

Look, I love PDT but this infrastructure thing has got me really confused. Rush keeps saying that he, PDT, would actually do it better unlike the Porkulus which was just a massive Democrat money laundering scam.

That said, government spending is still government spending, regardless of who is doing it and what their politics and or intentions may be so I am very wary of this. Especially since it is a shit-ton of money.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton at February 12, 2018 07:19 AM (mbhDw)

58 Fed spending increases are built in ... so if they only kept the status quo they would rule us completely in short order, if they don't already.

We are in deeper than most realize, in many ways already became "communist" with even elections and lawfare resembling actual communist regimes. But Deep State and their handouts to billionaires has been kept in the shadows thanks to the complicit "commie" MFM.

Looking at the malicious deed of the human/drug trafficking and our CIA involvement in dirty deeds. Meanwhile Public unions (funding corrupt Dem/commie politburos) leave Illinois $150B in debt, with the tide of debt rising, and sweet Polly Purebread patriot is tied to an anchor in the harbor. (many states/cities facing the same "mafia" theft)

Lots of work to do ... fill up Guantanamo and Thomson Prison with DeepState scum to start, then reform candidates for 2018, then remove Ryan/McConnell ... easy peasy.

66 As far as that ship stuck in the ice goes, the Navy brought that on itself. The Top Brass has drank the global warming Kool aide and sent that ship up there believing that there would not be any ice formed until late in the winter because of *GLOBAL WARMING* and they would not have to deal with it.

It is the same crap that California found out when the Orville dam flooded last winter. They knew years before that the emergency spillway was damaged and in need of repairs but they *knew* that the lake would never be full again because the State would be in a permanent drought because of *GLOBAL WARMING* so they ignored it and it bit them in the a$$.

70 The Olympic opening ceremony ratings were way down from the previous one; how the overall ratings fare are TBD.
**********

I've written a little essay, and would like some feedback.

At American Thinker, Monica Showalter [original German name Schoenwalter] discusses a Quartz article about how a new caste system is evolving in India, centered around the members' ability to speak English. No longer limited to marry within the old caste system, members are free to marry for love within the new caste of English speakers. This is a revolutionary act for the Indian way of thinking. And it's quite American in concept. This 'caste' is relatively small, but growing rapidly.

https://tinyurl.com/ydbblhyd

And as Monica points out, many prior immigrants to the US changed thrir last names to Americanize them. Bruce Willis, in Pulp Fiction, comments on the beauty of the cab driver's name, Esmerelda Villalobos. When she asks Butch what his name means, he replies "American names don't mean shit". So true. Last names such as Mason or Shoemaker give no indication of one's trade here.

Now contrast this with people with English/American names, that have changed them to indicate their rejection of assimilation. Richard Colvin Reid, a Brit, aka The Shoe Bomber, also had changed his name. He went by the new names Abdel Rahim or Abdul Rof as he attempted to blow up a jet full of people. You might say he antiassimilated.

There are many such cases of 'assimilated' Americans taking Muslim names and then plotting to kill us.

So, in many cases, diversity is not strength, but a signal that they want to destroy us. They have given us a divorce, and now seek to wreck our unity.

So the next time some Leftard says 'diversity is strength', kick them in the verbal balls.

Interesting thing about that. In the Fall of 2015 a lot of Republican bigwigs got together to figure out how to defeat Trump. I think it lead directly to the Washington Free Beacon paying Fusion GPS for dirt on Trump. I'm 99% certain McConnell was in that meeting.

We'll see where this market "correction or crash" goes, but till they crash the dollar, BigSpending is the (only?) way to win elections.

The same (may be) true for DACA, which average voters like, which is perhaps why Trump sounded so accommodating, BUT anchored in the wall/enforcement funding with it (we hope).

This will be a long war, but we finally see Deep State taking some incoming fire, instead of 100% surrender monkeys, kabuki theater.

111 Daily Mail is running an article about an about-to-be-deported Mexican father of six. One of his kids has leukemia, and of course the point of the story is how awful Trump is for deporting this man and breaking up his family and taking a father away from a sick kid.

The story says the father was brought into the U.S. illegally when he was 1-1/2, was deported a couple of times, and kept coming back.

What the story does not say is why this man was not eligible for Obama's DACA. It also does not say why he was previously deported multiple times. Most likely, it's because he committed a felony (or felonies) here.

The article says he has a job now, but does not say what the job is. It says he recently married his pregnant wife, but does not say if all the other kids are his or somebody else's. If they are all his, then why did he not marry the woman sooner? Is it because the woman was getting welfare as the single mother of all these kids?

As for the kid with leukemia, who is paying for his treatment? Odds are that it's not the dad, but the taxpayers of AZ and the U.S., through AHCCS and Medicaid.

Just sick of these illegal alien sob stories that leave out the most relevant facts.

Want to persuade the American public that we should be making government policy based on some sob story about an illegal alien with a sick kid? Then how about providing some actual facts about how the illegal alien came to be at the top of the deportation list, and also some facts about how that illegal alien has been supporting six kids and providing medical care to the sick one, with income from what is most likely a minimum wage job?

Maybe this guy has a sympathetic story, maybe he doesn't. It's impossible to know, because so many relevant facts about his story have been omitted. But it's clear from the comments after the story that people are sick of this kind of manipulation from the media. Want more Trump? Because this is how you get more Trump.

152 "CNN is taking a huge ration of shit for coddling up to Kim Jun Ung's sister. Doesn't surprise me since CNN has loved them some commies and enemies of America for a long time." vic

An alternative theory is the DeepState/oligarchs really do have a structure in the works for their global cabal, and it is aligned with China/Pakistan (as they destroy US).

So that might explain why we funneled $350B per year to them in trade deficits while ignoring they cheat on everything (drugs in their shrimp/fish, pollution, theft of patented items, abuse of people, etc). It's because our CIA and some FBI traitors are in bed with them for their NWO dreams?

So as Trump cuts that off, maybe the Norks really move toward aligning with the south. Bolton always says unification of the peninsula is the only solution. The sister was sitting next to Pence ... maybe the brother (Lil'Kim) is changing, or maybe he will be changed.

some realignments are happening, that one would be huge.

There's a theory that explains everything our media does... 1 simple rule:

They ALWAYS cheer for the underdog.

Even though North Korea is working on nuking millions of Americans, they are the underdogs. Sure they're gonna get nuked in retaliation back to the stone age, then the media will -- after appropriate waiting period -- call our retaliation 'disproportionate' or some such.

They're vile scum... and I'll stop now before going full D-Lamp.

Baltimore just finished a material and safety inspection of the city Metro.

Friday morning, commuters woke up to find the entire system shut down, with no prior notice.

Original story was a short section needed emergency repairs and the system would be brought back online in a few days.

Now?

The entire system shut down for at least another month.

And of course we have the spokes hole explaining that nothing is more important than the safety of the public.

My thought is that if safety is job one, how the fcuk did the system degrade to the point of being so unsafe to operate that it had to be shut down right then and there?

How old is the town/city you live in? Almost certainly, the water/storm/sanitary lines underground are at least 100 years old. How many miles of these pipes are under your town? 50? 100? 200?

The main highway you drive on should be resurfaced at least every 8 to 12 years. Just to maintain it. When was it last repaved?

the list(s) go on and on. You can cry and carry on about the stimulus-the money was essentially stolen. You can cry about the taxes you already pay. You can cry about all manner of things.

No, he and we want to keep America AMERICAN. At the risk of crossing into racialist territory, America as founded was and still remains a predominantly caucasian country. Not that it was intended to purely on those grounds, but just by the nature of who founded the country (slavery notwithstanding). With that populace came the culture, values and traditions from Europe as well as Judeo-Christianity and the Enlightenment.

The trajectory of this nation where caucasians are a minority was forced upon us in 1965 and continues unabated. The goal though is not purely racial; it's 90% political in that the influx of non-white hordes who are poor, illiterate and with no desire to assimilate is to turn the country RED.

236 Things to consider:

If the Japanese flu medicine blocks the flu virus from hijacking the cell's DNA in order to keep the virus from reproducing, will it have a negative long-term effect on individual acquired immunity against the flu (by reducing the immune system's exposure to the virus). If so, future exposure to influenza (if not recognized and treated again) could be more catastrophic for an individual.

Perhaps immune-competent individuals don't need to take this type of medication.

242 This country just doesn't care about deficits - and why should it?
Honestly, its hard to say that it has caused problems for our country.
Our quality of life and standard of living is pretty good. So long as
this country can get by with low taxes and high spending, we will
continue on that trajectory. Just keep speeding along until we get to
that cliff.

243 Almost every concrete bridge you cross from time to time has a 50 year lifespan. The next time you drive across one, look at the date stamp on the bridge.

How old is the town/city you live in? Almost certainly, the water/storm/sanitary lines underground are at least 100 years old. How many miles of these pipes are under your town? 50? 100? 200?

The main highway you drive on should be resurfaced at least every 8 to 12 years. Just to maintain it. When was it last repaved?

the list(s) go on and on. You can cry and carry on about the stimulus-the money was essentially stolen. You can cry about the taxes you already pay. You can cry about all manner of things.

249 Qanon (or just Q) is an "alternative source" who has a site that guides some 4chan, 8chan types on what is going on behind the scenes. He seems to have close connections with Trump and operations, but in any case, he said this is a prayer said every day in the oval office (maybe only by him, idk).

true or not, I think it frames where we are, in light of JFKs speech about secret socieities, which rings more true today than ever.

"Rest in peace Mr. President (JFK), through your wisdom and strength, since your tragic death, Patriots have planned, installed, and by the grace of God, activated, the beam of LIGHT. We will forever remember your sacrifice. May you look down from above and continue to guide us as we ring the bell of FREEDOM and destroy those who wish to sacrifice our children, our way of life, and our world. We, the PEOPLE."

this is that Kennedy speech warning of the secret societies, describing them well. Then "they" killed him.
"It's dissenters are silenced not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed."

As bad as people think it is, it's worse. And it's getting worse everyday. Just because you may not see how bad it really is doesn't mean it's not.

Yeah, I'm going to have to agree. I spend 3.5 to 4 hours a day commuting every weekday in Southeast and South-Central PA and the roads and bridges here are pretty much overwhelmed. Some of the roads I use are just plain dangerous. We do, in fact, need infrastructure repairs. That's not what Obama was doing--as usual, he was about funneling money to his peeps and funders. What we need is true infrastructure reconstruction, and PDT, of all people, is the man to see it through. I know we need to scale back the budget but some things in the Federal budget are legitimate and this is one of them.

304 Yeah, boomers get blamed for everything. The most massive spending in history as well as the most massive tax increases were pushed through by FDR was elected by people born in the late 1800's. Gaslight Generation? The next most massive spending and taxes was by LBJ who was elected by the so-called Greatest Generation.


But LBJ's foibles also contributed to the next big spending electors, the FSA generation.

Traditions and values are the key thing regarding immigration.

The idea that a nation should exist for no other reason than the protection of individual liberty, particularly freedom from government, is a uniquely American thing. I don't want those darker-skinned folks the dems and gope covet because their cultures don't care about that, so the chances are very high they don't care either.

For the *exact same reason* I don't particularly want lighter-skinned immigration from Germany, France, and Britain either. Poland is okay. As are some countries with similar recent experiences.

We have never gone out for Valentine's Day. I don't care.

It was a Yugoslavian ski jumper. Yeah, he was supposed to be upright at that point. And the Irish guys were hurlers- it was like giving Aussie rules guys clubs to swing.

452 Part of the reason that Liberals think we are ignorant fools is that when it comes to the issue of Government spending - we are ignorant fools.

The Federal government's spending is the ONLY source of money in the United States. If Federal spending were to shrink, the amount of dollars in circulation would have to shrink. Everyone's income would also have to shrink because there would be less money in circulation - so everyone's income would have to decrease. A larger economy requires there to be more money in circulation, or you can't have a larger economy.

Every government world wide spends 1/6th of the GDP of that country because computer analysis of national economies shows that is the amount that works the most efficiently.

454 Rueben Foster, the Niners' prodigiously talented young linebacker and national anthem kneeler extraordinaire, was booked into Santa Clara County jail Sunday on charges of domestic violence. On top of those domestic-violence allegations, Foster was also booked on suspicion of possessing an assault rifle.

As an isolated incident, this looks, bad -- really bad -- for Foster and the 49ers.

But it's not an isolated incident.

This is Foster's second arrest in a month -- he was arrested in Alabama on Jan. 12 for marijuana possession -- and his third off-field incident since being drafted by the 49ers last April. Add in his diluted drug test and his altercation with a hospital worker that led to him being sent home from last February's NFL Draft Combine, and you can fairly say that Foster has exhibited a pattern of behavior well-deserving of serious scrutiny.

It's a pattern of behavior, highlighted by his latest, and most serious incident, that could easily cost Foster his job with the 49ers.

466 "And then they changed it to an Irish field hockey player getting utterly crushed between two opponents and then collapsing like a sack of hammers."

Actually, "Hurling". Has been played by the Irish for over 3,000 years. Until 2010, helmets were not required. No information on whether the name of the sport refers to what the players do after being crunched by opposing players.

Come up to Michigan. The roads here suck, as they have for decades. Now though, you have to worry about crumbling over passes falling on your windshields while you're doing 70 mph down the freeway. Yes, we are falling apart.

An iced track, a tiny sled, high speed and potential for spectacular failures ... do you even need to ask this?

I guess any form of vehicular racing wouldn't satisfy you, either.

Sidewalks in the older sections of my hometown used to have "DO NOT SPIT ON SIDEWALK" imprinted in the concrete. Now you are lucky if they'll even install sidewalks or streetlights in a newly developed neighborhood.

Those shovels aren't going to lean on themselves.

Reminds me of a mechanic I used to have. My son took his car to get inspected and shows me the bill, irate. He asks, "What is LOF?"

I said, "Lean On Fender. Standard over-charge."

Aside from Iran's Obama-funded drones, Obama-funded missiles and Obama-funded anti-aircraft sites, Iran also used its beefed-up Obama-funded cyberspy unit to acquire the plans for Israel's new German-built subs.

But that Trump sure is reckless, huh?
