The Morning Report - 1/8/19

selfgas.jpg

Good morning kids. Back in the saddle again and thanks to cobs CBD and Mis. Hum. for filling in in my absence. I go away for a few extra days and the spaghetti hits the fan so let's get with it. The big story remains the the Democrat-Left-Media complex's continued opposition to border security by refusing to fund the Border Wall and the resultant "government shutdown." Three weeks in and I don't see millions of dead and dying women, children and minorities in the street yet a number of memes are on life support, but I digress.

President Trump will take to the airwaves in a national address at 9:00PM Eastern tonight that will be carried by the networks (who were insisting they would not air it and then caved), with some sort of Democrat response on CNN. He is also planning a trip to the border this Thursday. The President has stated he was strongly considering declaring a national emergency over the issue of border security and the decades-long lack of any via active sabotage by the Democrats and their GOP confederates. Considering that we potentially have upwards of 10% of our population residing here illegally, which is a massive drain and cancer on every aspect of our society and economy - which not coincidentally serves to bolster the Democrats and their allies who seek the overthrow and destruction of America as founded for their benefit - it is a national crisis on a par with war. In fact, all things considered, it is a war since our government, society and way of life are in mortal danger. It's just that the enemy is essentially an internal one - both the 20-30 million illegal aliens and the Democrat Party itself. And now that the Democrat-Left controls the House, beyond all the impeachment rhetoric, we have the insane talk of abolishing the electoral college as well as trying to further destroy the Senate (as if the 17th amendment wasn't enough) being belched up all over the place from the usual gaggle of Leftist sub-morons and tyrants (BIRM). And then I have to read about Nancy Palsi's dentures clattering out some galling remark that Trump wants to abolish Congress. Don't make my mouth water, lady.

Sticking with this category, the RNC releases an ad highlighting the tragic impact of illegal immigration, Lindsay Graham goes full "Grahaminator" in calling out the Left, a Mexican official herself is calling for a wall on that country's souther border, and Mexican sex traffickers, some who are here illegally, get slammed with long prison stretches for their crimes.

To the Dem Scandal Sheet where another dead black man has been found at big time Dem-donor Ed Buck's pad (he got the dead-girl-live-boy rule wrong, I guess), the Obama officials behind the sabotage of Roy Moore's campaign are revealed, and the liar who tried smearing Jim Jordan gets pinched. Elsewhere in politics, Marco Rubio calls out the Democrat senators for their complicity in anti-Israel BDS by hiding behind the shutdown to avoid voting on anti-BDS bill, Cuck Schemer is evidently a self-gassing Jew, this "Rancida" Tlaib slag gets slammed for spewing the "dual loyalty" trope (pro-tip: go buy a vowel, m'kay?), Fauxca-HasBeen is hitting the road in Iowa, "Mickey" O'Rourke is - get this - going to do a solo road trip to gauge voter sentiment while avoiding sobriety checkpoints, the DNC is a hot mess and as the party runs on "diversity" it's three big contenders are all white males, comedy gold as Nancy Palsi stresses a return to fiscal sanity (balanced budget amendment and baseline budgeting?), Loopy Ocasio-TacoRosado hates when people call her out on her bullshit, LA County is forced to purge 1.5 million names from its voter rolls, Kathleen "Obamacare" Sebelius is eyeing Pat Roberts' barcalounger, and various and sundry essays on everything from Willard "Rat" Romney to the metamorphosis of the Dems into full-fledged bust out Maoists (chest-burster scene from Alien).

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Christian Baker Jack Phillips' lawsuit gets a green light, Christian Toto reports on a possible Twitter ban on Rob Schneider, good essay on Tu-Ca vs "Conservative Inc." and unlike Khashoggi, a real victim that the media never reported on.

Mueller Witch Hunt: Lindsay disappoints with this bullshit protect-Mueller legislation and the House GOP want Huber (too late, guys).

At the foreign desk it's mostly Jews and Chinese (no, not Christmas dinner at the Moscowitz's) with Senators Cruz and Cotton pushing for official recognition of Israel's annexation of the Golan Heights, despite a political scandal (real or phony) Bibi Netanyahu looks likely to win a fifth term as Israeli PM, Secretary of State Pompeo says 99% of the ISIS caliphate has been defeated (still thriving in Dearborn, though), and a pro-Trump Syria policy essay. Meanwhile, the US Navy challenges Chi-Com claims on the South China Sea and what the hell is with this Chi-Com lunar lander? That does not bode well. Lastly, Norway targets Islam-exposer Hege Storhaug.

Crime and Punishment: several pieces on the shooting death of Jazmine Barnes, a 7-year-old black girl who despite Sheila Jackass-Lee's and Shaun "Talcum X" King's Assertions was not a hate crime, Daniel Greenfield on the crime epidemic in Portland (thanks to anti-police Leftist madness) as well as murder and mayhem striking DC.

Domestically, Gavin Nuisance is gun-grabby in the Golden State, contingency plans on Ruth Bader-Meinhoff should she ankle SCOTUS, the ills affecting the economy right now have pre-Trump roots, the positive job news stands in stark contrast to conventional wisdom on tariffs, and Ocasio-TacoRosado accidentally supports conservative economic policy.

In healthcare, a couple of stories on the fight over Obamacare vis a vis Medicaid expansion within the administration, Obamacare and the deficit presents an opportunity for PDT, Prager U with a new video on the disaster of Obamacare, and a story about a nurse's right-to-work lawsuit.

Education: the professor who published the phony gender paper to expose the fraud is now being hounded by his school, and a brazen taqqiya enthusiast crowing about the plot to use US schools to convert America.

Red-Greens: two pieces debunking Ocasio-TacoRosado's "Green New Deal" insanity, pro-energy group is pissing in the win in Colorado, and that ocean plastic clean up mission hits a snag.

From hither and yon, this Young Sheldon show is disgusting, the Golden Globes tanks in the ratings, a look at that package thief booby trap video, and what's old is new again with the Democrat Left with a look back at the sick evil bastard Father Charles Coughlin.

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

Things may have changed. Not because Mexico had a change of heart, but because Trump is insisting that applicants now stay in Mexico during their adjudication. That makes them Mexico's problem. Combined with a wall, it's a very good way to address the problem from our point of view.

Yes. The Mexicans have never been as kind to Guatemalans and Salvadorans trying to immigrate to Mexico illegally as we were to Mexicans coming to the US. Mexico is pretty pragmatic on this issue, particularly since the country's TFR went from somewhere in the mid fives to 2.2 over the last thirty years or so.

58 I see that the muzzie congress-idiot inflicted on the rest of us by the asswipes in Michigan has tweeted out a complaint that several Jews in the U.S. Senate have "dual loyalties" to the U.S. and Israel.

Think of the irony of a muzzie saying this, especially this particular muzzie.

She took her congressional oath of office on Jefferson's koran. IOW, she swore an oath to support and defend the U.S. constitution and to bear true faith and allegiance to it "without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion," with her hand on a koran. She swore loyalty to the U.S. constitution on a text that instructs that man-made laws (such as the U.S. constitution) are inherently sinful, and that it is her duty as a muslim to replace them with the perfect word of allah.

And she's complaining about somebody else's "dual loyalty."

And how's this for hypocrisy:

The mere fact that Jefferson, a kuffar, even *owned* a koran, is strengst haram.

Any muslim swearing an oath on any koran is, also, strengst haram.

I don't know if this is universal to all denominations of Islam, but i'm pretty sure that swearing *any* oath is in general, to muslims, strengst haram.

Unless it's taqqiya, of course.

85 I don't know if this is universal to all denominations of Islam, but i'm pretty sure that swearing *any* oath is in general, to muslims, strengst haram.

Unless it's taqqiya, of course.

Of course it's taqiya. She can't honor her muslim faith and swear an oath to bear allegiance to a man-made law unless she's lying about the latter. And fortunately for her, her muslim faith gives her permission to lie through her teeth while she's taking the oath.

There have been some commenters on other sites who've said that the version of the koran that Jefferson owned was the one translated by George Sale, and that it contains critical commentary of the koran's text, and basically announces on the cover the islam is a false religion. I don't know if that's true, but if it is, then we have irony upon irony.

102 The parents of a 22-year-old Tennessee man who was killed after a suspected illegal immigrant allegedly swerved into oncoming traffic spoke to Fox News Monday night about their grief and desire for stronger border security in America.


The migrant, Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo, 44, was charged with criminally negligent homicide and driving without a license or insurance, and he was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). He had been in the US for 14 years. No mention if he was drunk or not. But that is the normal modus operandi of these illegal turds in these cases. In SC he would go to jail for 25 years before being turned over to ICE.

103 Iraq war vet discusses the the pros and cons of a wall. He says pretty much the same thing I have always said. Walls are good but walls alone can not solve the problem. He says walls are a delaying function to hinder the mobility of the incoming people you wish to exclude. This is true. However, he does not mention the other good things that they do.


They are a force multiplier allowing you to reduce the number of responders you must have to effectively monitor and enforce the wall. And there is also a third thing that must be done. Laws and punishments must be enacted that discourage the migrants to illegally enter the country must be placed into effect. Illegals (and legals) should NOT be given financial aid and welfare benefits. Currently it is against federal law for illegals to get welfare, however this may be wavered which Obama did routinely. It has always been true if you set out plates of sugar all over your house you will get ants and roaches in your house.


The punishment for hiring illegals must be increased. Currently they are a minor slap on the wrist. Employers who knowingly hire illegals must get heavy fines on the first offense. Subsequent offenses should be both fines AND jail time. But also there is a key word there; 'knowingly'. There must be a reliable way for employers to determine if the people they are hiring are in fact in the country legally. Currently our database for that falls short. If we can spend billions building a wall we can spend a little more and fix the database. End of rant.

Oh heck, it was a translation?

That means it wasn't even technically a koran, then, and her oath is a sham! IMPEACH!!!!

(Although I happen to agree in spirit with the rule that the koran cannot be translated. Not so much that it's not allowed, but once you've inflicted the metaphorical operations of translation to the text, it is no longer the original text, but something new. This is due to the largely mystical, ambiguous nature of most of the text. You can't even technically "update the language" to modern dialects of Arabic without losing the true nature of the work.

Contrast this to the Bible (esp. NT), which is effectively a collection of newspaper clippings and white papers... far more "translatable" without losing the spirit and meaning of the original text. The meaning, the import, is in that case separable from the language used to convey it for the very reason that it is, in most cases, objective, and not mystical.

But i digress...)

174 Good evening my fellow Americans,

In order to fulfill my Constitutional responsibility to guard the borders of this nation from invasion, I am nationalizing the Texas and Arizona National Guard to begin construction of a border fence, effective immediately.

To fulfill my oath of office, to safeguard this nation from all enemies, foreign and domestic, I am firing the present Attorney General, who has done nothing to prosecute those US citizens who have openly conspired with foreigners to violate our immigration laws, and instructing my new Attorney General, Sheriff David Clarke, to immediately convene Grand Juries to prosecute those who have enacted so called "sanctuary laws." These laws are in direct contravention of federal law, have given active aid to those violating our laws, and have led directly to the deaths of American citizens.

I am also instructing the FBI, and all our intellegence services to immediately cancel the security clearances of those who, by all available evidence, have abused the intelligence powers of the United States to spy on US citizens and damage their reputations through use of illegal intelligence. These persons include former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Comey, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, Nell and Bruce Ohr and others named in a memorandum I have forwarded to the Department of Justice.

I meant what I said when, in my Inaugural Address, I promised the American people that all my actions as President would be guided by the single purpose of what is in the best interests of the American people.

Thank you for your time. And God Bless America.

You have five minutes of spare air time left.

Left unstated is the conclusion - because walls cannot stop every illegal, ergo we can't stop any of them See also: "We can't deport 20 million"... therefore we can't deport anyone Life is much simpler this way apparently.

The fines for hiring illegals are already pretty stiff. The problem is there's no way for employers to know if the paperwork they're presented is real - a new hire has to show you something from column 1, something from column 2, etc. You can't very well start bankrupting people for being unable to spot competent forgeries.

Don't give up yet. A portable phone charger is probably under ten bucks at Amazon. Easy way to get rid of the static. Problems with the combination transmitter/receiver connecting can usually be fixed by clicking that unit back and forth between the two functions.

That resets it in case it inadvertently 'locked onto' some other Bluetooth device in your home. It 'remembers' last connection, unless wiped out by that method of switching between trans/receiver mode.

290 280 I wonder why the Dems have not played the full citizenship for DACA "kids" card in the current standoff? Isn't polling well? Don't want to give PDT a wall political win, no matter what? Planning to use it, along with a larger amnesty promise, as a 2020 campaign issue? Others? My take is a combo of 2 and 3 above. What I am 100% sure about is that the Dems have a plan for how and when to use the DACA citizenship issue to their benefit (they hope).
Posted by: Gref at January 08, 2019 09:01 AM (AMIL/)

============

Trump cannot win. Trump cannot get a wall.

They figure that if they hold out long enough, Trump and Republicans will cave, pass whatever budget the Democratic House comes up with, and they'll be the saviors while avoiding a wall.

I think Trump will stand strong for a while longer, put on a show for the masses that helps gin up some support. The bigger question is what the Republican Senate will do.

Mitch seems like someone who knows that he needs to work with Trump to remake the judiciary (Mitch's #1 goal), so I doubt he'll stab the man in the back.

It's really a game of chicken at this point, and I feel like the balance is on the side of Trump.

IIRC, it's because a judge said PDT can't discontinue it, so it is being escalated to SCOTUS.
Essentially, a judge took it off the table as a bargaining chip for Trump.

Yes and no. Most wealthy people like being charitable. So they would likely give their money to charity whether private foundations were allowed or not. But foundations allow their family to have some control over how those funds are spent and when they are spent.

They are not perfect, but a rational vehicle for avoiding onerous estate taxes.

Posted by: Ace's liver at January 08, 2019 09:13 AM (h2Bdk)

============

Looking back to the first few decades of the Republic when it was unclear whether the President had authority to fire cabinet secretaries is interesting. The idea got settled pretty solidly sometime after Johnson fired Stanton (the action that led to Johnson's impeachment, actually) that the president certainly does have the authority to do it. He doesn't need to go to the Senate to discuss it (it's precedent now).

So, a post that requires confirmation from another branch of government can be vacated by the executive at any time, but someone hired within the executive by the executive has job protection beyond a cabinet secretary.

It's so weird.

The spoils system wasn't good, but at least it saw the government more reflective of the will of the people (and the states) than what we have now, which is a bureaucracy that's more interested in itself than anything else.

360 I was quite shocked to hear that the reason the #1
recruit left the state of Alabama was because Saban, even with his high
win percentage, loses coaches by the dozen quite often and the kid was
looking for more stability.

A few years back, I bought one of those variety packs of back issues of puzzle magazines that Penny Press puts out (or used to?). It was like 40 magazines, so I'm still working through them. Because they were back issues, the whole pack only cost me like $10-15. I bet they still have a similar deal.

The biggest impression I get, from reading and such, is that the guy really has no life outside of football. It's a level of dedication that, if he wasn't successful, would be branded obsessive and unhealthy.

Isn't that always the way, though ? Success at that level requires a certain madness ... in anything. We applaud the madness when it works, and condemn it when it doesn't.

On the other end ... when somebody possesses that madness but doesn't use it ... we typically call that lazy.

No, I fast-forwarded straight through halftime because I didn't want to hear whatever little band they had lined up. "Imagine Dragons?" Is that a Romper Room band?
Then I gave up and turned it off early in the 4th quarter after Clemson stopped us at their goal line. AGAIN. It was painful to watch, and so was the postgame presser. Tua and Xavier hardly looked up at all.

382 A "fatberg" measuring 210 feet and consisting of a combination of oil, fat, and wet wipes was found blocking a sewer in a seaside town in England.

Local utility company South West Water said it will take up to eight weeks to cut up the "fatberg" and remove it from the sewer in the southwestern town of Sidmouth, reports the BBC. They said it was the largest one they've ever seen, according to the report.

"Fatbergs" are large, congealed masses of fat, oil, wet wipes, condoms, diapers and other junk that sometimes form -- and block -- sewer systems when flushed down the toilet.

386 The head of the Russian Orthodox Church says the data-gathering capacity of devices such as smartphones risks bringing humanity closer to the arrival of the Antichrist.

In an interview shown Monday on state TV, Patriarch Kirill said the church does not oppose technological progress but is concerned that "someone can know exactly where you are, know exactly what you are interested in, know exactly what you are afraid of" and that such information could be used for centralized control of the world.

"Control from one point is a foreshadowing of the coming of Antichrist, if we talk about the Christian view. Antichrist is the person who will be at the head of the world wide web that controls the entire human race," he said.

387 OK, I'm not well, and that may make a difference. But I'm a bit worried about the Electoral College / Senate proposals from the Democrats.

In the immediate term, I do feel fairly secure about most of the GOP holding the line here, including Mitch, Lindsay, and Dondi. But I'm not so sure that Romney and Sassehole won't take "statesmanlike" positions which, even if they vote right, will cede the underlying point, and enabling a future offensive. And David French will write columns praising them for their displaying real conservatism. (Likely using Burke's line about a system without the means of change is without the means of its preservation, and stuff like that.)

But the real concern is the way this normally works out. They start out taking a position which is openly too radical. But the "national conversation" having started, they gradually shift the framing from there, to where it's an open question, then to the notion that opposition is bigoted. We've all seen how that goes. Add columns by Jonah Goldberg (saying how it will be a good thing) and Kevin Williamson (maligning the opponents), and...Voila. Further into the sewer.

Provocative, yes. Anti semitic, not to me (Jew and son of a Holocaust survivor). It does "go there" --but the left and particularly the Jewish left that always wants to imply "Hitler" needs to be slapped in the face with what a Hitler really is, and how, in actual physical reality, the appeasers and self-haters are more in line with the objectives of real Hitlers than anyone else.

I say often to my (amazed) urban/liberal acquaintances that in terms of "anti Semitism" (which I really don't worry about in our blessed country) I would trust anyone at a gun range and 90% of Evangelicals and other conservatives more than the average run of liberal, urban idiots.

395 If I can be the devil's advocate on the Chinese lunar lander: I think it's a good thing. There are two reasons why.
<P>
First, it's doing real science on the far side of the Moon. Knowledge is always a good thing.<P>
Second, it may spark another space race, which I think would be terrific. At times, we Americans need a challenge in order to get focused and get moving. The Russian space challenge turned into our space program -- not only Apollo, but the development of techniques such as orbital rendezvous and technologies such as the integrated circuit. A Chinese challenge could help us to set a goal (say, a permanent manned presence on the Moon) and realize it, which would be a very good thing for the country.

Sponge, when I was in your situation, I took up studying Latin. I know that it sounds crazy, but it's challenging, it definitely exercises the brain, and there's something really cool about being able to read and enjoy poetry that was written 2,000 years ago. Plus, you can feel smug and superior to other people when you can translate an inscription on a public building, and they can't.


If Latin isn't your thing, you might want to consider Hebrew, or Greek, or Sanskrit. The advantage of these "dead" languages is that you can concentrate on reading them, without the added pressure of learning how to converse, which is much more difficult. In any event, there's nothing like learning a language to exercise the brain and the memory. And as my grandfather was fond of saying, "Learn another language, gain another soul": there's nothing like learning a language to gain insight into how the people who speak that language thought and felt.

The Great Courses offers beginner courses in Latin, ancient Greek, Spanish, and French. I've found most of their offerings to be good; the Latin course is especially good. And if you wait until the courses are on sale (and they almost always are), you can get a bargain.


In any event, good luck!
