The Morning Report 7/11/18

unflappable.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek and a number of things are brewing besides the typical outrage over any GOP SCOTUS nominee, although to be fair, this one is going to be different because a) it's Trump and b) it's potentially for all the marbles since the Left traditionally advances virtually all of its policy goals through the courts, and ultimately the highest court in the land. That said, there is almost universal praise for Brett Kavanaugh from the majority of conservative and GOP quarters while blood is shooting out of every orifice of the Left. Rush Limbaugh had Mike Pence on his show for a segment and in discussing Kavanaugh and the shit-show surrounding the nomination suggested not giving the Dems the opportunity to drag him through the mud and politicize the process by calling for a hearing and a vote next week. The other thing he mentioned, and this needs to be hammered home, is the Left's meme of having "balance" on the court; that is, a vacant seat should only be filled by a justice with the same political leanings as his/her predecessor (as if the Left would actually abide by that - see Gorsuch, Neil). HELL NO!; The only people that should be on the court should be originalists/strict constructionists who will subsume to the best of their ability their own personal political preferences and decide cases based on the Constitution. Period. Full stop.

But I digress. In any case, the Left thinks the hearings/vote should be delayed until the Mueller witch hunt is finished. It is to laugh. You can peruse the links here and elsewhere, but most have nothing but high marks for the pick and the judicial record so I've selected a few of the better ones.

And speaking of Mueller, traitor Lisa "Gummy-Honey" Page is refusing to flap her gums and will ignore a Congressional subpoena. Let that sink in; a lawyer and law enforcement officer who is refusing to respect the law, whatever her personal politics may be. Yeah, I know, she wiped her sagging buttocks on the Constitution a long time ago by actively participating in a plot to sabotage our electoral process and then a duly elected president. Par for the course, but still, it takes a special kind of arrogance to think that you can ignore a subpoena and get away with it.

Meh, Paul Manafort is rotting away in solitary confinement on the flimsiest of specious nothingness while murderers, rapists, pedophiles and other scum of the earth post bail and are out in a heartbeat before the ink on their fingerprints are dry. That is also an abject travesty. It's political terrorism just as bad in its own way as that suffered by Steve Scalise at the hands of a Dick Durbin-linked would-be assassin. The President can put a stop to all of this right now by firing Mueller, ending the kangaroo court and just flat out pardoning Paul Manafort, but the politics of that is dangerous to play with. I am of two minds on this given what's being done to an innocent man. But the nation hangs in the balance and November is crucial. Maddening and sad. And add to it the patently obvious attempt to destroy Jim Jordan, who is perhaps the most effective voice in Congress leading the investigation to stop the coup against the President and expose those ultimately in charge of it. In the process he exposed Rod Rosenfeces and made him look like the stooge that he is and so, Jordan must be punished. That must not be allowed to happen. And thankfully, Jordan is not backing down and many are rallying to his defense. The fact that Perkins Coie, the shysters behind the Steele Dossier and linked to every major Obama and Clinton Deep State player, are representing Jordan's accusers is evidence enough that this is a complete sham of a mockery or two Allreds of a joke. QED.

Moving along, big news on the Second Amendment front where the DoJ has settled with Cody Wilson, the man who raised alarm bells with Cuck Schemer over his ability to successfully 3-D print firearms and go around the Left's attempts at gun control. With the decision, his files are now free to be posted as open source information on the internet. Kind of a big effin' deal if you ask me.

On the political scene, as the Dems try to rally their base for November, now mostly about Kavanaugh, polling shows that any shot they may have had or may have thought they had about minimally retaking the Senate has all but evaporated. The hair-on-fire outrage is not a turn-on to most voters. In any case, DNC chair Tom Perez beclowned himself by posting the wrong photo in an e-mail alert about Brett Kavanaugh. Jeez, they had so much invested in [XX] they should've just stuck with that. Insert Nelson Muntz laugh here. That said, there's still this business of Nazi collaborator George Soros and his backing of AG races across the country. He has lost a couple including a crucial one in of all places California (Sacramento, IIRC) but still, this underhanded subversive needs to be watched. Actually RICO'd, his assets seized and then deported to Malaysia where I believe he has been sentenced to death. Also, Daniel Greenfield with a good piece on the Maxine "Roger" Waters Marxist minstrel show.

On to international affairs where the President is in London, much to the dismay of the yobs, lefties and Islamos and smack dab in the middle of the Theresa May fallout over Brexit. He also pulled no punches with NATO causing a churlish, infantile response from the EU President. Considering that traditional antipathy and 70-odd years of ingratitude coming from Western Europe after we liberated them twice in a generation and then spent trillions building them up, they should consider themselves damned lucky we didn't let the Soviets roll all the way to the Irish Sea. Also, tensions are on the rise on the Syria-Israel border; a situation to watch considering Iranian proxies and Iranian regulars are operating in the area while Iran is coming apart at home, the administration is warning about Iran's use of diplomatic cover to plot terror attacks, the US is challenging the freedom of the seas in the Taiwan Straits, the Chi-Com aviation firm AVIC, known for their leading edge technology (mostly by stealing it) is seeking to buy stakes in American firms (that has got to be stopped cold by PDT for obvious reasons), and several key cabinet members will be confabbing with Mexico's Marxico's president-elect. Lastly, adding to the revelations about how Obama sabotaged our efforts to stop Hezbollah drug-running is the news that he sabotaged similar efforts to take down the Taliban. How this nation survived eight years of this deranged, Marxist twat-waffle is mystery and a miracle.

Closer to home, manufacturing jobs are at a high, Obamacare and EPA regulations are getting the chop and some sort of big labor Medicaid scam-o-rama is being deep-sixed. On the down side, a 9th Circuit PDT nominee gets confirmed but all the 27 "no" votes came from the GOP; what's up with that? And the Senate is going to finally move forward with Ivanka's paid family leave effort. Meh, is that trip really necessary?

From hither and yon, Sasha Barely Cogent is one titanic asshole and Sarah Palin rips him a new one, and the #WalkAway movement has got the Left scared, for good reason.

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

    This one allowed States to steal medicaid payments from home healthcare people and give it to the unions. This outrageous action is a violation of federal law but Pharaoh Obama, as we know did not give a shit because he knew congress would do nothing. The States who were doing this include California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Illinois. And most of the public had no idea this crap was going on because the MFM has never reported it.

    31 OK, JJ and Vic, I'm going to drop some praise on you -

    While I was trying to sleep last night, I got to thinking about the HQ and realized what a unique, to my knowledge, website this is. I don't know of any other with the sort of commenters we have who combine gut-busting humor with an incredible breadth of knowledge.

    And then there's simply the range of posts throughout the day - the Morning Report, the VNN, Morning Rant, the Ewok's short blurbs or heavy-lifting essays - not to mention the gardening, chess, food, movie and pet threads on the weekends.

    But I was really thinking of the work you put into the Morning Report, JJ; it's not only comprehensive, but you take time to actually put the entire list into perspective every day. And Vic's links would just be that - links - were it not for his own caustic commentary that sometimes says so much you don't even need to read the link itself.

    Which is a long way around of saying all of the cobs do an amazing job. There is simply no other news-aggregate / opinion site like this anywhere else on the web.

    https://tinyurl.com/jbbwfjs

    I like it for two reasons - firstly because I'm pretty much Guy Kibbee in real life (though I'll never have a candybox like Blondell for myself) - but mainly from that smile on her face which basically says, "We might only go to bed once a year, Pappy, but I'll rock your world until you can't see straight!"

    *or perhaps not; I've also seen it attributed to the sadly lost 1933 very Pre-Code comedy Convention City.

    112 80 Hearings are nothing but a flock of political birds preening in front of the American people. Hearings change nothing. They should just vote and get it over with."

    As things stand today, you are absolutely right. You should understand that it didn't use to be this way. There was a time when hearings of nominees were expected to be open and honest. Then Ted Kennedy and his fellow travelers used the process to totally trash Bork and Thomas, and seizing on every little thing they said as "proof!" that they were biased. Then came the RBG confirmation, where Dems claimed that ANY substantive questions about policy issues were off limits, since it would force the nominee to pre-judge cases.

    Well, they apparently didn't realize it at the time, but with that move they destroyed any practical usefulness of Senate hearings on Judges, forever. Now the only purpose of a hearing is for a nominee to show that he can be calm and show some good humor while he sits in front of a pack of morons who throw completely idiotic "questions" at him or her, in the form of political speeches. If he ever is asked for an answer to something, he or she is expected to show how well they have been coached in saying nothing at all while they spew out a minute or two of meaningless word salad.

    And at the end, everyone votes along party lines, just like they knew they were going to 5 minutes after the nominee was announced.

    Democrats have killed the "advice and consent" function of the Senate. It no longer has any meaning at all.

    122 31 OK, JJ and Vic, I'm going to drop some praise on you -

    While I was trying to sleep last night, I got to thinking about the HQ and realized what a unique, to my knowledge, website this is. I don't know of any other with the sort of commenters we have who combine gut-busting humor with an incredible breadth of knowledge.

    And then there's simply the range of posts throughout the day - the Morning Report, the VNN, Morning Rant, the Ewok's short blurbs or heavy-lifting essays - not to mention the gardening, chess, food, movie and pet threads on the weekends.

    But I was really thinking of the work you put into the Morning Report, JJ; it's not only comprehensive, but you take time to actually put the entire list into perspective every day. And Vic's links would just be that - links - were it not for his own caustic commentary that sometimes says so much you don't even need to read the link itself.

    Which is a long way around of saying all of the cobs do an amazing job. There is simply no other news-aggregate / opinion site like this anywhere else on the web.

    123 That the Chi-Coms are snooping around trying to "acquire" aviation related tech from US companies and elsewhere is no surprise, because they can't create their own tech, and never have. True, China is a "technologically advanced" culture, capable of building their own guns, tanks, ships, aircraft, rockets and spacecraft.

    But the problem is that everything they build is just a copy of something they bought or more often stole from some other country.

    The reason this is so is because their culture is so hierarchical they are incapable of innovating. Innovation, new ideas, and the like is just not something that comes naturally in Asian cultures, because of their "command" economies/societies/cultures just do not lend themselves to new ideas or techniques.

    Years ago I picked up a copy of a book, "The International Encyclopedia of Space Technology", and it contained all sorts if interesting facts and photos of rockets and spacecraft from all over the world (this was back in the early 1980s). In this book they had a photo of the Chi-Coms' early "Long March" ICBMs, dating back to the 1970s.

    I'm looking at this picture and it hit me, "Where have I seen this before?" Looking at the picture closely I realized, based on the structure, engines, fuel and so forth, that this thing was just a knock off copy of our own Titan II ICBM. This of course begged the question of how the Chi-Coms got the plans for the Titan to start with.

    In any case, all these years later, they are still at it....

    They need to send the Capitol Police (if she's in DC) or the U.S. Marshals (if she's not) out to get her. Bring her into the hearing in manacles.

    If the named law enforcement agencies refuse, well, maybe it's time for a quick bill to deputize a new law enforcement agency. Trump would probably sign off on it.

Is this what passes for brave, critical thinking? He is seeking and getting attention just for stating the obvious, and is thoroughly enjoying it. . His calls for civility and return for discussion and debate without threats of violence are welcome and all but it is his beloved liberal-left that has led us to this and I have not heard him acknowledge that, only that both sides are polarized. He remains a liberal Democrat and a Hillary supporter to boot.

    And what intelligent, decent person supports Hillary anyway? Anytime I hear the expression Hillary supporter I think it must be a reference to her exoskeleton.

    Well, we more or less know that Burr shot at Hamilton (barring someone on a nearby grassy knoll or something), and that two shots were fired, but which one shot first and whether Hamilton threw away his fire or simply missed will never be known.

    Dueling was illegal, and the seconds turned their backs before the shots were fired so they could (truthfully) say that they never saw either party firing his pistol.

    248 I just saw the report about Trump criticizing Germany for relying on Russia for it's energy needs. This attack is brilliant on so many levels at once! Obviously, the top level shows that Germany is double dealing and supporting Putin's Russia even while it cries for money from Uncle Sugar to protect it from Russia. Next level down, it demonstrates to everyone that those claims that Trump is "Putin's puppet" are idiotic, that's what Merkel is. And Trump opposes her.

    But probably the most important level is the one that isn't even stated - and that is, why does Germany need to buy so much energy from Russia? Truth is, they now have no choice, because they have totally screwed up their energy sector by catering to the 'Green Energy" bullshit and they will totally collapse their economy now unless they get emergency imports from somewhere, since they no longer can produce enough energy to satisfy their own industrial needs. And Russia has built a nat gas pipeline to take advantage of this idiocy by the German Govm't.

    It's as if no one every realized that letting one of the darkest and stormiest areas of Europe pretend to rely on 'Solar Power!!!" was a piece of unbelievable idiocy.

    And so now when Trump attacks them for their imports from Russia, all they can do is stand there and say "hamina hamina hamina"

    269 I was thinking that the 2d Civil War stuff had mostly run its course, and maybe tensions were down. But, consider the following:

    1. Public confrontations with Trump admin officials continue.

    2. Lisa Page is telling the US Congress to piss off on their subpoena. We listen to the talk radio in the am, and this news came across. My wife says, how can she do that? Won't she go to jail? I said, no, of course not. Then they had quotes from 2 or 3 Congressmen about how they "hope" it isn't true. Hope isn't a strategy, Congressman. It's your subpoena and if you just let it slide, no one else is going to pick up the slack. Everybody is watching her do it, and watching you let her get away with it. Expect more of it.

    3. Dershowitz was on The View. Joy Behar asks why isn't McConnell in jail for Merrick Garland. Aside from the sheer stupidity of that question and the fact that Dersh tepidly answered because he doesn't support jailing people who haven't broken the law - Dershowtiz further answered in what should be alarming to EVERYONE (in "The Professional" sense): he said that Obama had not fought hard enough, the Constitution says "advise and consent," not "delay and dispose," and that Obama should have nominated Garland, then sworn him in, and dared the Congress to do something about it.

    THAT IS A BIG FUCKING DEAL RIGHT THERE.

    Can you imagine what would happen if someone in the Trump orbit suggested the same for Trump? Just swear in Kavanaugh, dare the Congress to do something. Just swear in those hundreds of appointments languishing, because the Constitution says "advise and consent," not "delay and dispose."

    I think Schlichter is right. Buy guns and ammo.

    level.

    Posted by: Bandersnatch at July 11, 2018 08:45 AM (fuK7c)

    I tend to not believe that.


    Particularly since dueling pistols came as cased sets of two identical pistols, and were examined by the seconds prior to the duel. No way Alex could have ensured that "his" pistol wouldn't have ended up in Burr's hand...

    However, there was a long-running controversy about the use of set triggers on dueling pistols, with some incidents of guns being fired prematurely by those unused to them. Don't think that applied to the Hamilton-Burr duel, but that is probably where the story came from.

    272 If Republicans were smart (stay with me here) they would introduce a bill to permit the President to terminate a job and any pension that a government worker has in the event they refuse a lawful subpoena before congress. The IRS does this for people who owe taxes, as they can't use a US passport. Why should criminal FBI agents such as horse-face Page have any better rights?

    Posted by: Rachel Jeantal at July 11, 2018 09:05 AM (VclTF)

    273 Dueling was illegal, and the seconds turned their backs before the shots were fired so they could (truthfully) say that they never saw either party firing his pistol.

    Posted by: Rodrigo Borgia


    Also, just showing up supposedly settled the "slight" to one's honor. Therefore, dueling being illegal, they would aim ten to twenty feet off to one side thereby making boom boom but not hitting anyone.

    Except some people didn't get the memo. Burr being one of them.

Watch us make Foreign Devils Squirm, we say They Immoral! They Racist! We say even Germans say so, HA!"" That's Chinese PR strategy in a nutshell.

    Meanwhile, I've always been a bit amused that, probably because of it's large oil sector, Russia stays out of this topic. We've finally found an area of leftist ideology that is so low and so self-destructive that even Russia won't have anything to do with it. Amazing.

    OK, JJ and Vic, I'm going to drop some praise on you -



    While I was trying to sleep last night, I got to thinking about the
    HQ and realized what a unique, to my knowledge, website this is. I
    don't know of any other with the sort of commenters we have who combine
    gut-busting humor with an incredible breadth of knowledge.



    And then there's simply the range of posts throughout the day - the
    Morning Report, the VNN, Morning Rant, the Ewok's short blurbs or
    heavy-lifting essays - not to mention the gardening, chess, food, movie
    and pet threads on the weekends.



    But I was really thinking of the work you put into the Morning
    Report, JJ; it's not only comprehensive, but you take time to actually
    put the entire list into perspective every day. And Vic's links would
    just be that - links - were it not for his own caustic commentary that
    sometimes says so much you don't even need to read the link itself.



    Which is a long way around of saying all of the cobs do an amazing job. There is simply no other news-aggregate / opinion site like this anywhere else on the web.

    Stainless steel sink? Rub your fingers against it and the smell disappears. Some high end garlic presses supply a little hunk of stainless steel for the same purpose.

    354 288 But my lefty relatives brag about how Germany generates so much energy from solar power, that people can sell their excess energy back to the state."

    Occasionally different jurisdictions have come up with the idea of allowing people to sell excess power back to the State (Or the utility, or whoever) at a high rate in order to encourage small scale renewable energy production. Sounds good in theory, right? When this was tried, what happened almost immediately was that clever people bought a big bank of solar panels, and then bought oil powered high intensity industrial light plants that would shine on them 24 hours a day - the money there were getting rebated from the electricity they were selling paid for all of the expenses and then some.

    And so the end result was a large Increase in oil use, to keep the light plants running, and a huge expense to the State and/or Utility, since they were now buying large amounts of power at incredibly high rates, with no way of getting out of it. The Worst of all possible outcomes.

    The energy utility involved faced bankruptcy, and some clever guys made a whole lot of money because the system was just begging to be gamed.

    He's promoting his book "The Case Against Impeaching Trump". It has an alternate cover, "The Case Against Impeaching Clinton".

    He says "it's the same book".

    His claim, and I believe him, is that he is a non-partisan civil libertarian.

    I don't judge him by whether he agrees with me on the issue of the day. He has been consistent. It used to look like he was on the left, the left wandered away from him, he stayed right where he was.

    Nice bb, he just wants some romance.

    386 364 269. I heard that Dersh excerpt on the radio. It sounded like he was trying to get back in the good graces of the kewl kidz. The Martha's Vineyard shunning campaign worked.

    Well, yeah. It bothers me because Dersh is supposedly a Constitutional scholar. Apparently we keep using that word, and it doesn't mean what we think it means."

    Actually, Dersh had a valid legal point, but it shows that in spite of being a brilliant legal theorist, politically he's an idiot. If any President moved to publicly trash the expected norms of executive/legislative interaction, that would be the true spark that could ignite a new civil war. No President would dare to do such a thing, not unless he's also willing to call out the troops, arrest all opposing party leaders in Congress, and declare martial law. (that's how the South Americans do it)

    If people ever wonder why Trump goes to such lengths to comply with aggravations that the Congress piles on him, this is the reason why. Once anyone in power begins to openly defy the system, the system will crumble rather quickly.

    Dersh has apparently been in his Ivory Tower so long he doesn't realize this. But then again no liberal has ever realized that we're never more than one really bad week away from ragnarok.

    390 Wow, PDT took the NATO deadbeats and the EU leftards to the woodshed, literally, and that "President" of the EU, whatever his name is - he had better find a blast-proof room because the blast radius of Trump's EU visit is going to singe the hair off his little tiny euroweenie collones.
    "Germany is controlled by Russia" is simply genius.

    391 As to why Germany needs natural gas pipelines to Russia to supply so much energy...well the answer of course is GREEN ENERGY bullshit.

    The goal to raise wind and solar power's share from a third now to 65 percent by 2030 is meant to help Germany achieve cuts in carbon dioxide emissions under its climate commitments.

    If the goal is taken seriously, the volatile nature of weather-driven renewables means that without gas, there would be shortfalls in steady power flows, said Ludwig Moehring, head of sales at Gazprom-owned wholesaler Wingas."

    392 >>I just assumed her face is weird because she has a dark, evil soul. Is there another reason?



    That's no doubt the source, but with the Left, they seem to be exceling at facial weirdness these days. Their ugliness and unhappiness + cosmetic procedures and/or body modification are turning them into unsightly freaks!!

    394 I'm so old that I remember when there was going to be an eu army and the eu was going to have heavy lift capability.

    Both of those were to happen 15 years ago. Both are still at the same place, nowhere. The eu need the USA way, way more than the USA needs the eu.

    Posted by: Huck Follywood, coffee drinker at July 11, 2018 09:31 AM (LISuA)

    Maybe because her face is weird, she did not get enough male attention during her peak pussy years and developed a dark, evil soul?

    396 "On the down side, a 9th Circuit PDT nominee gets confirmed but all the 27 "no" votes came from the GOP; what's up with that?"

    It would appear that Bennett, among other things, is squishy on the Second Amendment and has criticized Citizens United. My question wouldn't be why 27 R voted against him, but why he was nominated or confirmed at all.

    397 What if we conservatives did that...walked away from the lib lunatics instead of legitimizing them by responding?

    Yah, I know...that leaves their rantings unanswered. But most of those rantings are so insane as to not require a rebuttal.

    Getting so sick of the crap I want to walk away.
    Posted by: creeper...not sinister, just slow at July 11, 2018 09:28 AM (Oqufv)

    That's pretty much what the majority of conservatives have done for the last 30 years. And it left the field of public opinion to be completely controlled by the tards.

    I have a woodpecker attacking the sheet metal cover over my chimney. Driving me up the wall.



    Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at July 11, 2018 09:22 AM



    No bb gun? Hit 'em once, they never come back. Not the same one, anyway.



    I'd get the sucker quickly. It wouldn't surprise me if it could go through sheet metal. There's probably some ants in the area.

    Posted by: Forgot My Nic at July 11, 2018 09:25 AM (LOgQ4)

    I hear the gun that shoots multiple bb's at the same time is effective too. Load up some birdshot and you'll be good to go.

    399 I think Soros has maxed out the number of fighters he can put in the field. I doubt there are a mass of people that are potential recruits for actual violence. I'll bet Soros is under siege and is being blocked daily in ways we'll never see.

    401 I know I'm way late. Everyone should be hammering on about how it is lawyers who are ignoring the rule of law and defecating on the Constitution - From The Clintons to Obama to the DOJ - the FBI - Mueller and private firms like Perkins Coie. If lawyers and law enforcement can ignore the law and break the law with impunity then our society is in grave peril.
