The Morning Report - 11/2/18

ytubeto.jpg

Good morning kids. Friday. The weekend is here and the Midterms are in sight. I think it's fair to say that as crucial as the 2016 Presidential election was, this one is perhaps that much more so. We did not have to experience a Hillary Clinton administration to know what that would have wrought, mostly because of the previous 8 year nightmare inflicted on the nation by Barack Obama. But what draws things into even sharper focus more than that are the 2 incredible years on every level that we perhaps never thought we'd live to see the day under President Trump. There is the economic miracle at home, the reassertion of a generally sane American-interests-centric foreign policy abroad and the incalculable salutary effect that this man by himself has had in exposing the utter corruption of the Democrat-Leftist political enterprise and its arms in an entrenched, feral bureaucracy and a dangerous media-propaganda machine to a heretofore disinterested, apathetic and/or ignorant citizenry. In doing so, he has also at minimum started the process of reshaping the GOP into something at least minimally aligned with the interests of real Americans and not the Chamber of Commerce and New Deal "progressive" elitist sell-outs. And crucially, he has shown what it means to actually fight back in a rhetorical sense. And in doing so, he has forced the Left to step on one big ass rake after another.

Underscoring all of that has not only been the now all-but impotent and generally irrelevant Mueller witch hunt collusion investigation, but the past 3-6 months with the Kavanaugh persecution, the overt attacks and calls for violent direct confrontation by Democrat leadership on its political opponents, this bought and paid for migrant caravan invasion and attempt to sow discord and chaos internally, and the mail bomb hoaxer and anti-semite Trump-hating Pittsburgh mass murderer. All of the aforementioned draws a sharp red underscore as to who and what the Democrat-Left are and what they will bring should they take control of Congress let alone all the branches of government. You all know what's at stake. I pray to G-d a helluva lot more people who do not come here or elsewhere for honest straight talk and opinion - and the facts IMHO - will see the light as well. Michael Ledeen, Jeffrey Lord, Lloyd Marcus and Rachel Stolzfoos have some fine essays that put it all together.

And as Tuesday approaches and the polls tighten (for whatever that's worth), James O'Keefe and Project Veritas strike again. This time exposing "Agarn" O'Rourke's staffers boasting about using campaign funds to essentially smuggle Honduran migrants from the invasion force into the country. Also, psycho Marxist Joo-Hater Andrew Gillum is packed with even more Joo-Hate than previously thought, the phony jooz of J-Street are in trouble for campaign finance violations, Joe Bidet says a GOP candidate should get beat up, Daniel Greenfield on the open anti-semitism of the Democrats and a shining example in the form of some psycho Presbyterian minister shrieking obscenities at the President in Pittsburgh, and Sherrod Brown is still beating his wife. Hey-ho, the way to go, O-Hi-0...

Speaking of the illegal alien invasion force, the President is not only speaking plainly and honestly about the nature of what is going on, but his actions are speaking loudly and clearly; the first active duty regular army troops have arrived at our southern border and are taking up positions along the invasion route. And the commander-in-chief has clearly stated that they are cleared to use deadly force to repel any attacks of any nature on them. Good. Frankly, there are some "concerned" commenters here and elsewhere that are afraid the optics of innocent women and children being shot or shot at by US soldiers would be horrendous. Considering the President's brilliance at exposing and then dismantling media narratives, and the self-inflicted exposure of the true nature of the media these past two years, the concern is [X] noted. Unchecked immigration and the national identity-killing nature of same is the issue that got him elected and will keep him and like-minded politicians in office. And amnesty, immigration and the invasion caravan are political kryptonite to Dems right now.

To politics in general where Ron DeSantis correctly predicts the consequences to the state of Florida should Andrew Gillum, a crooked, Joo-hating Hugo Chavez without the parrot, win the governorship. He was on for a full half hour on Limbaugh's EIB yesterday so click here for the transcript. Meanwhile, PDT ripped Nancy Palsi over her threats to subpoena the crap out of the administration should G-d-forbid she get her bony digits on the Speaker's gavel, John James is a superstar in Michigan and even if he doesn't beat Debbie Shabbycow, he is someone to watch IMHO, Joe's Man-Chin gets a beating from Morrisey in a debate, Hinderaker on a possible House pickup for the GOP, Pennsylvania's congressional races could hold the key to who controls the House after next Tuesday, VP Pence rallies in Ohio Amish country, and along with the aforementioned essays, are you better off now than you were two years ago is the question to answer for all voters.

At the foreign desk, Brazil's President-Elect Bolsonaro has announced that they are moving their Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, NSA Adviser Bolton is putting the screws to Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela, Nikki Haley bemoans the UN, Heather Nauert is on tap to replace the Dusky Destroyer as our ambassador there, and the Administration is going to unfortunately cave on some Iran banking sanctions. Foggy Bottom is still a friggin' sewer. Meanwhile, Canada buckles to more Islamic dhimmitude with sharia adoption laws, and comedy gold as ham-fisted Hamas-hole has a workplace whoopsie with the quick fuse. Say hello to the barbed piss-flaps of Helen Thomas in Hell for me.

Closer to home, Obama's Deep Staters at CIA were spying hard... mostly on whistleblowers, the unintended (or intended, frankly) consequences of mandating free range animals means poor people go hungry, another IBD analysis of the Trumponomic miracle, a mysterious polio-like disease is puzzling doctors (let me guess where the origin will be and hence covered up), the Trump administration is coming down hard on campus anti-male kangaroo rape courts and is it the twilight of the Red-Green follies?

From hither and yon, Kanye West re-enslaves himself, how Hollywood insinuates itself into red state lawmaking and a whopping 47% of Americans feel like aliens in their own country. Does that mean us normal people reacting to what the Left has done to us lo these many decades or are the respondents Lefty NPC drones spouting Orange-man-bad? The world wonders... Have a great weekend.

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

    Asbestos I understand it, the reasoning of the left is:

    Hitler is the paradigm of conservatism.
    Hitler hated Jews.
    All conservatives hate Jews.
    All who hate Jews are conservative.

    OK, from Aristotle to Russell, that doesn't pass as logic. But here we are.

He was on for a full half hour on Limbaugh's EIB yesterday so click here for the transcript.

    Good, but the trouble with that is I doubt there are 10 people who (a) listened to it and (b) weren't already in DeSantis's camp. OK, maybe the polls are wrong. Nevertheless, it's disturbing that so many polls show them either up or close in what should be a blowout. There's a limit to how much fakery pollsters can get away with.

    28 Ah, so that's why Oprah is in Georgia" to protect LGBT agenda. Now it makes sense.

    Both Abrams and her opponent, Brian Kemp, support the [state's Hollywood tax] credit. In describing the policy's importance to Georgia, Abrams told Variety, "It is multibillion-dollars-a-year of economic activity [pumped] into our state. It creates a range of good paying jobs, from barbers to makeup artists to hairstylists to grips and gaffers and writers and directors. It is incredibly important to our economy, and it is dangerous for anyone who is in leadership in our state to put a vital part of our economy in jeopardy."

    The threat she's alluding to is the potential for the state to enact a version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which Kemp has pledged to support in some form, although he's careful to say business interests would be protected in the effort.

    Beneficiaries of Hollywood's multibillion-dollar annual spending in Georgia worry the industry will boycott the state if any such measures are passed, as has happened elsewhere in recent years.

    50 Based Linsey Graham has been activated. He gets it:

    "McCaskill says she's not one of those crazy Democrats, but she votes with them all the time," said her Republican challenger Josh Hawley during his Monday rally with Sen. Lindsey Graham --- the South Carolina Republican is crisscrossing the country to rally voters against senators he deems responsible for the Kavanaugh circus. McCaskill, despite her effort to stay out of the fight, still ended up with Graham's target on her back.

    This is a new role for Graham, who in the past has refrained from campaigning against sitting Senate colleagues like McCaskill. "I like Claire, but I love the country more," Graham explained to reporters after delivering a rousing speech attacking her. He said McCaskill's attempt to stay on the sidelines was just as disturbing for him to watch as the senators who led the fight against Kavanaugh.

    "Claire was not there when she should have been there," Graham said. "The most disturbing thing to me was the deafening silence. It's not how you vote that bothers me as much as what you didn't do."


    "This is a referendum on who you want to run this country --- the rule of law attorney general or somebody that quietly sits on the sidelines while the mob gathers. If we don't win big they're going to get the wrong message."

    Posted by: Mr. Peebles at November 02, 2018 07:38 AM (oVJmc)


    From a creative point of view, New York City is the location for many many scripts, as is LA. This is mostly a factor of where the writers and actors live and so the stories they write and tell are based on that factor. And therefore, those places have the lion's share of production.

    But because of labor and other costs, studios fled to places like Toronto and Vancouver that sort of looked like NYC if you squinted but were much cheaper.

    As a result, the cities gave them all sorts of tax breaks. In theory, it supposedly meant that although they collected less in direct taxes, it would be offset by increased economic activity and taxes collected on that end.

    Again, I don't see it. And I live in a neighborhood that has a film shooting almost every other week, and after 30 or so years in show biz.

    I don't see how Georgia can bring in 'billions' from film production. The budgets don't get all spent in Georgia, and they likely don't get the biggest productions, so they would have to have hundreds of different smaller productions dumping in seven figure spending EACH to cross the 'billion' mark, much less 'billions.'

So, while you may believe something like this to be true what O'Rourke's campaign is supposedly doing doesn't seem that out of line to me.

    126 'I don't see how Georgia can bring in 'billions' from film production.'

    I don't know if it's billions and if Abrams said it, it's probably a lie. Still, in the last three years the direct impact on me has probably been $3k or so and one guy I know pulls in over $100k a year doing automotive stuff for studios. Just a few years ago there was very little of that I know of.

    People still talk about "Fried Green Tomatoes" being made near here 30 years ago like it was a big deal. Still, there is a resturant that was in the movie that still draws in people with their Fried Green Tomatoes.

    127 I have absolutely no evidence to back my assertion, but my gut tells me that the money that film production allegedly generates for local economies is highly overestimated.

    Unless you live in the community itself, virtually all the actors and film crew live in NYC or LA. True, hotel accommodations, vehicle rentals and other associated production costs are incurred on location, but as far as significant long-term revenue? I call bullshit.


    I'm sorry for the late reply....

    Your call is spot on.

    Back in my undergrad days, one of my profs had a group of us help work on an analysis of the economic benefits of sports teams. The argument has always been that having the Denver Donkeys in town (it was back in THOSE days) had huge benefits to the local economy.

    Turns out it was, indeed, very overstated. We're talking 6-8 days a year when the team was in town, so intuitively it didn't make much sense that it was this huge powerhouse. Fan merchandise sales turned out to be quite cyclical (no one bought stuff in the off season), the stadium was idle most of the year (even when the Denver Bears used it for games...yes, this was a long time ago) and so on. Plus there were always the costs wrt traffic, extra cops on duty, and so on.

    I have zero problem thinking that studios going to a state to shoot movies are the same model. They aren't there that long nor that regularly, the producers are very capricious, and it just doesn't create a stable economic infrastructure.

    As you say: bullshit.

    It is the job of our Congress to provide for the people. Everything else is distraction and diversion. How anyone feels there is a compelling case for Democrats, who are on the wrong side of every beneficial issue for our nation, is beyond reason. In fact, if you ask most people voting for Democrats about their policies, you don't even get a cogent answer. It's mostly Trump-Hate, ad hominems and baseless nonsense they read or heard.

    We are truly at a critical juncture with our families future on the line. Please get out and vote Republican. Bring your family and neighbors with you.

    Regarding the screaming person who calls herself a Presbyterian minister, here are the qualifications for a pastor as laid out in 1 Timothy 3:


    Therefore, an elder must be blameless, the husband of one wife, stable, sensible, respectable, hospitable to strangers, and teachable. He must not drink excessively or be a violent person, but instead be gentle.


    He must not be argumentative or love money. He must manage his own family well and have children who are submissive and respectful in every way. For if a man does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God's church?


    He must not be a recent convert, so that he won't become arrogant and fall into the Devil's condemnation. He must be well thought of by outsiders, so he doesn't fall into disgrace and the trap set for him by the Devil.

    Yes, I know how many hate him, and with reason. But remember the conclusion Bill James came to about managers: The great error is concentrating on what a player's weaknesses are, rather than his strengths. And then making use of the latter while minimizing the former.

    A good example of how this can work is Graham under Trump. Remember, he used to be Miss Lindsay, but is now The Grahaminator or Lindsay Badger. He hasn't changed all that much, but he's been there where he's useful, with his weaknesses minimized.

    I've met him several times and I have to say he's a good man, husband and father. He cares and perhaps his weakness is in that he cares too much. That will eat you up in Washington. But it also forces you into certain positions that are more emotional, and therefore less easily defended to a mass electorate. Those emotional decisions are also ephemeral as to the actual sagacity of their conclusions. And yes, he's a little bit of a swamper simply by virtue of his position and the many demands it presents. That's more a matter of courage, which until lately was not rewarded.

    When Obama first threw the borders open to unaccompanied minors I recall reading an interview with a doctor at one of the border holding shelters. Sounded like a horro show. Sick kids were segregated from healthy kids by a police tape-type barrier (i.e., not really separate), a lot of kids were an emotiona/psychological l wreck (freaked because they were separated from parents), hideously messy facilities because so many of them didn't know how to use indoor plumbing.


    And Obama not only had his DHS bus/fly these kids throughout all 50 states, but Arne Duncan made sure they were placed in public schools. The source of these mystery illnesses aren't all that mysterious.

That may or may not be a big deal in House races, where Democrat cities are in their hands already. But in the Senate and Governorships, it matters. The latter especially, as we seem to be in somewhere between decent and excellent shape in the Senate anyway.

    But it could matter in even a few Senate races. And every one matters. Every added seat makes it less likely we have to watch a Flake-out acting as Hamlet. (I expect Sassehole will be picking up the standard of posturing jerk, with 2 new senators from AZ.)

    No guarantees, but our military is well-trained in handling massive crowds with non-lethal force.

    When I was in GTMO in 2013-2014, the Marines there always trained for a gate rush -- hundreds or thousands of people rushing the gate to escape Castro. They have all of the equipment and TTPs to get it done.

    The problem will be the protestors who will fake agony and scream in pain and make false allegations that is so dutifully reported by the Make Believe Media (see Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter.) Can't do anything about that.

    Public schools in California ban students from wearing clothing with the U.S. flag on it, and sometimes ban the actual U.S. flag itself, out of fear of "offending" illegal alien Mexican students in the schools. They know that the students are loyal to their own country, Mexico, and not the U.S., where they live and suck up benefits (like taxpayer funded education).

    Aside from being incredibly undignified and insanely hysterical, utterly disrespectful when others were trying to pay their respect to people who were just killed?

    371 During the Zika virus scare a few years back, there were foreign pregnant women who already had been diagnosed with the virus in their own countries, and who knew (through ultrasound) that their babies would be born deformed, who deliberately came to the U.S. to give birth here so that U.S. taxpayers would be stuck with the bill for the life-long medical care that their deformed kids would need.

    Several of them were interviewed and even admitted it to the reporter.

    This is what "birthright citizenship" leads to. And it isn't just Mexicans or Hondurans who are taking advantage of American taxpayers this way. The Chinese have set up a friggin' birthright tourism industry, where they fly Chinese women in to give birth here. And lots of rich Saudis also fly into Miami to give birth, then fly out and stiff the hospitals for the bill. Marco Rubio was complaining about it a few years ago, but of course that's all the "action" he was willing to take.

    372 So, the Marines were issued riot gear and shields. I was always told that the DoD doesn't have a non-lethal force policy but they use clubs and pain compliance methods to subdue opponents.

    I don't see any Marine shooting a woman or a child. They are too disciplined for that. They have had to make those decisions in Iraq and A-stan for the past 17 years. They are very disciplined, as are certain units in the Army.

    I think there's something to that. There are studies showing that overexposure to stress hormones as a kid can cause changes in the brain leading to things like depression and anxiety. I probably would have always had a melancholic disposition to some degree, but nothing like what I am. In any event we would definitely have been better off without the conditions that led to all this in the first place. An emotional and sometimes physical warzone is not good for kids.

    *In the 2012 election, he didn't mention any names but said that who we voted for could result in persecution not being far away. (I'm not sure he likes Trump, though, but like I said, he focuses on the Word, so it's just a small suspicion, possibly unfounded.)

    Ought to be a blast.
    Wish it could have been Murphy an Coria (sp) instead, but Murphy is busy stumping for Dems in Florida spending his warchest there, so he was unavailable.

    430 Dispatch US LE to interrogate the "caravan" en route, in Mexico, and arrest and charge the leaders with conspiracy to violate US immigration laws, conspiracy to commit human trafficking, etc.
