The Morning Report - 12/04/18

laiscog.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday is here and lots of things breaking across several categories so let me mix things up a bit and not lead off with the big domestic story which of course continues to be the immigration/border crisis. More on that in a bit, but first, the rioting in France and the bubbling up unrest in Sweden are getting either very little to no attention in the Leftist house organ media, or otherwise distorted as to the underlying causes. In the wake of French prime minister Emanuel Macron's decision to implement a so-called carbon tax that would essentially make gasoline an unaffordable luxury, the citizenry have had enough and have taken to the streets. The question is, since France and Europe in general (and this is an opinion based on no real hard evidence) are not necessarily "car cultures" as is the USA, and since (again just my assumption) that the French people are more or less convinced that so-called "climate change" is a clear and present danger, then what the hell is really going on here? And then, as if to underscore the conclusion I am about to draw, Sweden has seen migrant centers go up in flames with the approach of national elections that have real ramifications for the future of that nation that by all appearances is all but subsumed by the self-inflicted national poisoning of Muslim immigration. Again, here is a society that since the end of the Second World War (in which it remained neutral and was untouched, except for making a handsome profit from trade with Hitler) has gone out of its way to present itself as some sort of model to the world of openness, tolerance and acceptance - to the point where the once heavily Jewish community of Malmo has been utterly terrorized by Muslims, but to point this out will bring the wrath of the government down on your head. Again, just as with the character of the French people vis a vis socialism and (since '45) general American antipathy, what's really going on in Sweden?

The latter I think is pretty clear (see the related Daniel Greenfield piece about rapists in a sleepy German town). But in France, is this just about the money or has the failure of the socialist model, particularly in terms of immigration policy going back to the late 1950s/early 1960s from its former Arab and Middle Eastern colonies caused the citizenry to say enough of this? Times change, people change and attitudes change. The question is is the reality of what is going on right in front of their faces on a daily basis enough to cause a wholesale sea change in attitudes or will the sort of societal/social cognitive dissonance continue? Look, I get it. The French hate us. But just as the late great Golda Meir quipped about the prospects for peace between Arabs and Israelis, France will perhaps rise again when they hate themselves less than they hate us (or something like that).

Now to the Illegal alien Invasion and the concomitant politics of it all over here, where the SCOTUS has rejected what could've been a big legal impediment to the construction of the border wall from the enviro-Commies, the Pentagon may be going wobbly on troop deployment to the border, this "By Any Means Necessary" group is fomenting a lot of the rioting/violence amongst the caravan invaders, two good pieces underscoring the citizenship question on the census which has big implications for the direction of our society and a big identity theft ring and the connections to illegal aliens.

In First Amendment, Fake News Fakery and Censorship, the only difference between Tim Cook and Benito Mussolini is the hair and the homosexuality, Twitter is/are hypocritical, SCOTUS nixes mandatory Bar Association dues, YAF beats UC Berkeley in free speech battle, Nimesh Patel gets "Apu'd" from an Ivy League stage, the new USMCA may be good for trade but it lets Big Brother Tech shut yo mouth, the media now uses Bush 41's corpse to beat up Trump and announcing the Fire Breathing Lunatic Network.

To politics where it certainly looks like we wuz robbed in California, Claire McAssKill spouts a "gee, ya think," Fauxca-Hasbeen longs for the days of gulags for kulaks, Cui-Bono Cuomo and Sandersnista are prepping for 2020, and Mollie Hemingway and a piece from American Greatness on NeverTrump Conservatism Inc.'s racket. And that segues nicely into the Mueller witch hunt where the Deep State's gonna Deep and Chuck Grassley wants FIB Chief Wray to answer for the raid on the Clinton Crime Family Foundation whistleblower. Don't hold your breath for answers, let alone justice.

On the international scene, along with more analysis of the Paris rioting, the President has persuaded Chi-Com mandarin Xi to knock it off with the fentanyl dumping, Iran has indeed violated all treaties and bans in launching its latest nuke-capable missile, families of people held captive by the Farsis ask Trump for action, a look at the new Trump of Brazil, and lastly a top US Admiral serving in the Middle East has been found dead of an apparent suicide while an ISIS head-chopper gets Tomahawked.

Closer to home, as Paris brulees, the GOP should look long and hard at the consequences of taxing carbon here (or else, what, I fear), Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco actually stumbles her way into a truth nugget about Tesla, Trump announces an end to green subsidies for electric cars and renewable goniffing, Maxine Waters blames the banks for the housing crisis caused by her party's insane lending laws, and yet another alarm bell of the debt and spending disaster.

In healthcare and policy, small biz looking for a final push in the lame duck session to ease insurance burdens, Obamacare is seen as a disaster by the people, and the NIH is still mulling aborted baby parts for UCSF's Frankenstein-Mengele-Maus mania. Why?!

In other mad scientist news, the weaponized law firms going after the oil companies craved anonymity (gee, I wonder why), and the UN sez "we're all gonna die!!!... unless you send your GDP to our office in Accra to remain blessed."

Lots of things from hither and yon including, Veggie Tales is evil and white but mostly white, 69-year-old man cannot be 20 years younger with this one neat Leftist trick, a couple of pieces delving into the evils of anti-semitism, "equality" and diversity, and a British dominatrix will whip white conservatives until their morale improves!

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

Speaking of The Dominatrix, for your dining and dancing pleasure, I give you...

27 Congratulations to the IC for finding the ISIS leader who beheaded the American aid worker, and sticking a Hellfire missile down his throat. Even muslims should applaud this, since the aid worker converted to Islam in his captivity, which should have been enough to free him if I correctly understand the protocol.

40 For those of you who, like me, are fans of 1954sWhite Christmas, TCM is sponsoring two days of the movie on the big screen - December 9 and 12, with a 2pm matinee and a 7pm evening showing.

Go to fathomevents.com/tcmbyscreen, plug in your zip code, and it will tell you where in your neighborhood the movie will be showing.

See it now before the lunatic left shuts it down for being racist. White Christmas, you know.

Oh, BTW - since there will be an introduction by the PC imbecile Ben Mankiewicz, I expect him to grovel and apologize for the "Mandy" minstrel scene. Fuck him and enjoy the movie.

It's way too early in the day to be steaming, but dang it if I don't want to smack the ever lovin' snot out of these dumb, completely ignorant brats. They have been served so poorly by an education system and entertainment industry that is designed to brainwash this hatred of America into their empty skulls. But at some point, one would think that maturity and life experience, not to mention taking a look at historical events and life in the rest of the world would shake that off to a large degree. It really burns me up to know these pampered, powdered and privileged princes and princesses take this great country for granted like they do.

Not just Sweden. When the Berlin wall was dismantled 'everyone' proclaimed the demise of Marxist-Leninism. I thought then, and still do today, that Marxist-Leninism didn't die; it metastasized like the cancer that it is and all those little cells spread around the global went active.

So we see Western Civilization teetering on the edge of a cliff while Islam has money to burn, as does China and the cancer of communism grows tumors all around the globe.

Africa is a local story with local feudal warlords minding their own business, while the South American drug cartels are just taking care of business; nothing political.

Interesting times in which to be alive.

58 What is going on in France reminds me of one of the greatest accomplishments Trump has had - pulling out of the Paris climate agreement!

We are enjoying lower and lower gas prices - due to free market forces! France? Let's tax oil some more! Let's make it hurt!

I spent three years doing the UPS Drivers Assistant thing with big Brown. Simply because our old driver was a good friend, and they paid us an hourly wage to have a good time together. Think 'Comedians in cars, getting coffee',and you wouldn't be far off.

Anyhow, the big brown company has very strict and enforced rules concerning package placement.
And those rules focus on reducing package visibility to reduce theft, and protection from the environment (Rain/snow)

Beck is just too emotionally unstable for me. Levin is definitely on a mission to create a conservative network to do battle with the MFM propagandists. He doesn't trust Rupert's brats to do anything but undo every fucking thing that Ailes accomplished and make the increasingly dogshit network into something indistinguishable from the rest.

________________

Speaking of cauliflower, I bought a cauliflower-crust pizza at the grocery store the other day. Trying to keep carbs down, and the pizza only had 10 total carbs (not per serving, per pizza). I had previously tried an Atkins cauliflower meal, and it was beyond disgusting, so I didn't have much hope for the pizza. But to my surprise, the pizza was actually very good. Didn't taste (or smell) like cauliflower at all.

So if anybody else is doing the low-carb thing, give the cauliflower-crust pizzas a try. I've tried several different brands of them now, and they've all been good.

... one of the most pressing consequences for women is the loss of male mentors who can help them climb the ladder.

"There aren't enough women in senior positions to bring along the next generation all by themselves," said Lisa Kaufman, chief executive officer of LaSalle Securities. "Advancement typically requires that someone at a senior level knows your work, gives you opportunities and is willing to champion you within the firm. It's hard for a relationship like that to develop if the senior person is unwilling to spend one-on-one time with a more junior person."
Men have to step up, she said, and "not let fear be a barrier."

130 " France and Europe in general (and this is an opinion based on no real hard evidence) are not necessarily "car cultures" as is the US"

By European/American standards, France is not one of the more urbanized countries (this is even more so with Germany, and it also is seething). I don't have stats on it, but the large cities in France are so costly they continue to become exclusive enclaves for the wealthy, who can afford cars and overpriced gasoline and/or, as is often the case, drivers for hire. Those hit hardest by fuel taxes are those most reliant on cars who barely can afford them now. Higher fuel prices seem almost designed to torment the French working and middle classes while the upper classes virtue signal.


This is more than just that, though. The EU is unraveling quickly, primarily due to mass migration and other overreaching. Just spitballing now, but beyond the demagoguery Macron's call for a European military may have the native populations more in mind than foreign threats. Brussels may encourage Macron to resign or crackdown if this threatens to spread outside France. When the police started to side with the Yellow Jackets the signal was sent this isn't going to end with the citizens surrendering without major concessions.

Kerry and Clinton merely are mouthing what their globalist paymasters are fearing. Antifa has tried to glob onto the riots, largely to coopt the actual protests, and have been rebuffed. That signals Brussels shock troops may have outlived their usefulness. There likely will be accommodation made to quell the riots but it also could get very, very ugly.

166 the Census Bureau has found. In fact, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program. Moreover, instead of decreasing over time, the number grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more.

My pact with citizens is not a suicide pact! This is unacceptable for a so called civilized society! So the real Progressive lie is that all illegals are doing is violating 1 single little law about where a line is drawn on a map.

Nope, that is not what is happening! This is a full fledged international conspiracy to defraud and collude Americans. My guess is the average illegal family is committing hundreds of crime annually!

I may have mentioned this before to the Horde, but I think it bears repeating. A few weeks ago I had to visit the Conroe, Texas Social Security office to get my address changed in their records (and the reason for my having to go there in person instead of doing it online is another story entirely).

From what I saw there, ICE would have had a field day at that office. The vast majority of the people there were foreigners, most of them illegals. And no, it was not just the usual south-of-the-border variety. There were a lot of Asians (mostly Chinese) and Africans there as well, all looking remarkably able bodied and relatively young. And you can bet that not a one of them had ever paid a dime into the system, yet there they were, applying to feed at the public teat.

188 BAMN, a Detroit-based group whose motto is "Trump must go or be removed BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY," is inciting the migrants to march to the border. Its flier titled "Open It Up Or We'll Shut It Down! Everyone Must Be Let In!" was distributed to the migrants and its banner hung in the Benito Juarez sports complex that housed the caravan.


BAMN has a huge presence in Berkley, and was behind the Berkley riots when Milo was scheduled to speak. Crazy Yvette Felarca who was busted for this (IIRC) is in BAMN leadership (https://everipedia.org/wiki/lang_en/yvette-felarca/).

Why would BAMN be so committed to the caravan succeeding? Here's a guess: BAMN's parent organization worked directly with NAMBLA in the years just before it formed BAMN.

Paris voted 90% for Macron while the suburbs/exurbs/rural vote, went against Macron the further away from Paris you go. And the people pissed about the fuel tax are the ones in suburbs/exurbs/rural areas who drive, while Parisians (like New Yorkers) don't own cars and so don't give a fuck about gas prices.

Of course higher gas prices affects everyone, even non drivers, since it increases costs on all items. But the smart people in Paris (and NY) don't ever understand that.

How surprising that people eventually have enough of being lied to and treated like subjects by their elected government and demand they be listened to and their concerns addressed.

Every so often the NYC Transit Museum arranges tours of closed or disused stations as well as some of the yards and maintenance facilities.

If it's something you want to see, you could find out when the next tour is and arrange a trip.

Alternatively, just ride the #6 downtown local train from the last stop, Brooklyn Bridge. It uses the station as a turn back loop to go uptown. But all you'll get is a fleeting glimpse for a minute.

Doubt it. As much shit as we give the French they aren't stupid and they took to the streets because they are at the end of the line.

Unemployment in France is around 10%. They have a tax burden that would make Americans poop their pants already and their welfare state demands and ever increasing amount of money every year.

Our elites wanted us to be like Europe and now they are our canary in the coal mine. There's a reason Trump style nationalism is on the rise around the world.

Also touts *very different versions* of what happened during the big China-USA trade meeting, citing:
* Kudlow, who was there and was pretty specific about why he thought this was a breakthrough, citing the personal engagement and specific commitments of Chairman Xi, and the repeated emphasis on immediate actions by the Vice Premier.
* a China expert who (correctly) said that in the past China always makes promises and does nothing.
* Chinese state media, which only mentioned the postponement of tariff increases.
