The Morning Report - 5/15/19

twindick.jpg

Good morning kids. Two big stories for this Wednesday lead the news, first, the appointment of Connecticut attorney John H. Durham to lead the investigation into the origins of the Russia collusion hoax and second, the escalation of tensions between the US and Iran. More on that later.

As to John Durham, his appointment affirms that AG Barr's promise to get to the bottom of this mess got started was not just empty rhetoric. Since the debasement of the Democrat hearings in the Senate, I am convinced that Barr fully intends to do whatever it takes to, for him, restore the integrity of the FBI, CIA and other Federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies by bringing to justice whoever was involved (and may still be involved) in the ongoing attempt to bring down Trump as well as cover up the crimes of Hillary Clinton. And by all accounts, Durham is a brilliant pick. Both Da Nang Dick Blumenthug and Chris Murphy, as well as the MFM heaped high praise on him at the time of his confirmation as unbiased, tough and dedicated. In the Phony Soldier's own words, "John Durham has earned immense respect as a no-nonsense, fierce, and fair prosecutor." But now, he's bitching that Durham's appointment is politically motivated, or something. Nice try, jag-off.

UPDATE: Commenter Tami states that Durham has already been at work behind the scenes for quite a while and this is just an official announcement.

Meanwhile, fraud Republican Richard Burr is backtracking on his subpoena stunt on Donald Trump Jr., agreeing to set strict limits on the length of the interview and scope of questions he will be asked. The sooner this boob and his twin tit Thom Tillis are dumped the better, but then again North Carolina's status as a haven for Democrat locusts fleeing blue northeast shit-hole states (that they created in the first place) means they get replaced by Dems before anything remotely resembling conservatives. Also, Rod Rosenstein unloaded on that lanky hunk of piss James Comey and finally digging deeper into Obama's hand in all of this in the waning days of his dying regime.

Speaking of waning days of a dying regime, in the wake of blaming Iran for the attacks on ships in the Arabian Gulf, the US is now reportedly put our forces on a high level of alert in Iraq as well as recalled all diplomatic and embassy personnel from that country. This on the heels of sending a carrier battle group, as well as strategic bombers, to the region. For 40 years, Iran has been the leading destabilizing force in the Middle East as well as state sponsor of global terrorism with the blood of thousands of innocent people on their hands, including many American soldiers and citizens. Aside from the fact that it was once an ally and a bulwark against communist Russia, the people are or were advanced, modern and western. Today they are oppressed under the iron grip of an insane death cult that views armageddon as a desirable political tool to bring about Islamic domination of the world, or the heap of ashes it will become if they ever get nukes. Short of that, both China and Iran see the destabilizing nature of that enslaved nation as a way to sabotage America and advance their geopolitical interests. It is obvious that the mullahs must go, and like yesterday. The question is how we go about achieving that outcome. Several good essays tackle that loaded question.

Down at the border, the President is set to unveil his immigration proposal, hopefully with as little influence of his son-in-law as possible, CBP agents in Texas reporting more than 5,000 illegals crossing in every day, House Dems look to block wall funding, and look out for Mariel 2, Migrant Invasion Boogaloo.

Official Democrat Anti-Semitism tops the scandal sheet where Nazis of a feather flock together as a Soros group is running defense for the Schutzstaffel Sisters, a pro-GOP PAC is going after vulnerable Dems who are silent about their party's Joo-hatred, and this Omar Suleiman who gave the benediction in the House the other day is a real piece of work... as in unreconstructed Dark Age throwback.

Politics: Despite the so-called trade war, the coup, sabotage by the GOP and the broader attempt by the Democrat-Media Complex to thwart him at every turn, President Trump's approval rating has skyrocketed to its highest level in over two years, Blotto Beto apologizes for being white on a magazine cover, Faux-Has-Been slimes Fox News rather than get an audience larger than she has had in years, a look at Joe Bidet's campaign through the lens of identity politics and the black vote, De Bolshevik's epic fail at Trump Tower, blue shit-hole mayors are lousy candidates, and one more lousy candidate jumps into the Dem Klown Kar; Montana governor Steve Bullock is candidate #23. They need one of those take-a-check deli counters.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: 32 times the agitprop media cried "doom" over the trade war, Google execs try plugging the leaks about their dirty laundry, Jeffrey Lord on the WaPo's lie about Trump and the Fourth of July, Twitter stammering on censoring the truth on transexual psychosis, and several good essays on how Big Tech helped the attempted and really still ongoing coup against Trump and their plans to silence all anti-Socialist pro-American voices.

Guns: Allen West calls out Wayne LaPierre and Carolyn Meadows for cronyism and other shenanigans at the NRA.

Abortion: Salena Zito on the thuggery of bearded clam Brian Sims and his ilk.

Foreign Desk: Besides the Iran situation, the Chi-Coms and Russkies are cozying up yet again (as is their wont), Pompeo's meeting with Vladdy highlights the restoration of sane policy, and Hamas pulls a #RedforEd with its terror-tykes to protest Joo-weather-controllers.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Daniel Greenfield examines a Kentucky imam who promotes delicate wife-beating. Just until you get soft peaks, I guess.

Domestic Affairs: California looks to implement a totally communist edict on housing, which no doubt is aimed at the hinterlands and not Beverly Hills or Pacific Heights, Mittelschmerz Romney stabs Trump in the back yet again, a call to disband the VA, and reigning in the rogue judiciary.

The Economy: Steve Scalise speaks the truth, Trump's tariffs will work and we don't need the Chinese to succeed, plus US oil production - which leads the world - is filling in the gap left by Venezuela and Iran.

Crime and Punishment: Kamala-Toe wants us to forget her truancy laws locked up parents as the Dems smear Trump for locking up kids at the border.

Healthcare: Measles cry "me so lonely" and Hepatitis "A" came a 'running with a major outbreak across the nation, cheap Chi-Com labs at the heart of the opioid crisis, and government controlling cancer treatment will go as well as you'd expect.

Red Greens: Joey Bidet defends his record on pimping the climate change fraud, and how to deal with the Tom Styrene's of this world who would turn us back 300 years and sit on top of the resulting dung heap.

Feminazi and Transgender Psychosis News: More on this Orwellian Democrat "Equality Act" and a further look at the war on masculinity.

Hither and Yon: Harvard Lampoon apologizes for p-shopping a bikini on Anne Frank, PBS cartoon Arthur comes out as homo and marries a man, Dave Reaboi bemoans not being the next Mort Meek, and two essays including Robert Stacy McCain on the state of the cultural vis a vis the current insane political landscape.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

33 More Noos; today is Wednesday, May 15, 2019. On this day in 1536 Anne Boleyn, Queen of England, stood trial in London on charges of treason, adultery and incest; she was condemned to death by a specially-selected jury and was executed a few days later. She was only guilty of giving the fat king a daughter instead of the son he wanted. That daughter later became Queen Elizabeth-I, said to be one of the best rulers of England in history.

35 Which deep blue city run by Democrats has the highest taxpayer burden and yet is still drowning in debt? Of Chicago and NYC which one would you guess? If you said Shitcago you would be correct. Here are the top 10 cities with the largest taxes. Only a few of the cities are in a red State but every one of them is run by deep blue Democrats. If you live in any city with a population over 30,000 it is probably run by Democrats and the only thing I can say to you is get out while you can.

Barr is DS. He is working to limit the number of rats going to the can. Rosenstein and Wray should be on that list. They are ass chum.

Which is exactly where we are looking. But I took out the electoral
map to see which counties went heavy Republican in the last election and
limited myself to those areas. For example Beaufort, Pamlico, Craven,
Lenoir, etc. But the statewide trend really bothers me.

161 Problem with the Dem Primary is you have three types; outliers, woke, and Biden. Biden plays lip service to the woke crowd because he expects his votes will come from traditional Democrats. The bagmen and money people know he has the best shot, so they will back off and you can see their influence already and the race really hasn't started. I think to underestimate the cunning, illegality and sheer will to destroy our country by the Democrat machine, would be a big mistake.

163 The VA is conducting what they call Veteran Outreach. They need to increase their numbers because their funding is tied to the number of Vets they see. Currently two thirds of all Veterans never set foot in a VA facility.


The more Vets they see, the more money they get.


Additionally the vast majority of Veterans they do see are over 65 and on Medicare. Every single time a Vet on medicare or other insurance goes to the VA, the VA bills their insurance provider. My wife went there for an MRI and they billed our Blue Cross $3,100 and they paid it.


It's all a big scam. They spend way more money on bureaucracy than any other organization I have ever seen.


The VA needs to go away.

Here is what I think is going on - during Obama years, the Great Gun Salesman made life at the NRA as an organization fat and happy. Everything was good, revenues were great, and so no one had any criticism.

With Trump as President and not coming for anyone's guns, revenue dried up. It isn't zero, but it also isn't pouring in like a gusher.

So NOW there is infighting.

That is what I think. It seems to me that LaPierre got a little greedy at the trough. If that is true, then he needs to go, because, just for a practical matter, that isn't the guy you want in charge when revenues are lean.

205 What I know if that LaPierre has the unequivocal support of almost the entire NRA board. That tells me there is probably more we don't know and a lot of this is parlor games and peddling by anti NRA forces.

Most organizations always give a stipend for clothes and travel in a role like LaPierre's. Personally, I think it's exorbitant, but I don't know what the organization agree to permit LaPierre. I also think people like West and North should STFU and fight those battles privately.

209 Iran was one of the reasons I was slower than some in accepting Obama as the worst president ever. (And never bought from those who tried to make the case that Clinton was worse than Carter.) OK, Barack was even worse, but the "even" matters; Jimmie was a complete disaster.

I don't know if a sane Mohammedan state is possible, but if it is, well, Carter saw too it that one promising possibility was killed. Sure, the Shah wasn't a kinder gentler sort of leader, but it's just possible he'd have been Iran's Pinochet. And that's good enough for me. (OTOH, Ataturk tried, and his work proved temporary. It's not clear the best we can hope from them is not the slackness of corruption. And the hardliners always seem to return.)

Mittens himself called President Trump "a fraud" and "a phony." But somehow Mittens has the right temperament to be a U.S. Senator, while somebody who (while running for a political office) called Obama an imposter has disqualified himself from being a federal judge.

I think that gets it backward.

The Shah was plenty brutal. His problem, though, was that he was facing opposition and brutal oppression is not as popular as you might think. Khomeini rode a wave NOT of Islamist popularity but Shah unpopularity. The people of Iran wanted the Shah gone and Khomeini's movement was the path to get there.

They weren't really thrilled with the Islamist part that came along with it, but by then it was done.

They used repeated images of both Trump and Barr with dark lighting and the dems in bright light. It is so blatantly biased its sickening. And this brings us back to: why the the hell are we allowing tax dollars to go to PBS STILL? Wasnt that one of the promises to cut? If the shoe were on the other foot, the dems would have already held hearings with program analyses and PBS funding is gone. But no, not the fucking spineless GOP.

295 276 BTW, today is George Brett's 66th birthday. He's 4 days older than I, which I've been aware of since noticing his baseball card. I really rooted for him his last batting title - not too old. And, as a lifelong Yankee fan, he ranks with Koufax as the opponent I most feared.

Posted by: Eeyore at May 15, 2019 08:38 AM (VaN/j)


Brett was an outstanding player. And he will also be enshrined in history for maybe the best-ever on-field player blow-up on the officials, for the "pine tar extends too high on the bat" event (triggered by Yankee's manager Billy Martin IIRC).

Yes it was Martin.

326 I'm not defending the allowance, just trying to figure how it could be justified (if it could). I'm pretty skeptical myself. But where firearms victories are concerned, I think just staving off bad outcomes is a full time job. Guns are one of the few issues where I think "raising awareness" is a genuine expenditure. Elite culture, including the media, is against us. Countering their messaging and keeping millennials (a demographic terrified by the first amendment, let alone the second) from being poisoned against guns is a lot of work, I'd guess.

Yup.......the NRA should be pushing for gun education and training in our schools, starting around the 8th grade.

Every middle and high school should have a rifle and pistol team competing against each other.

Every high school should have a gun range which is also open to the public.

The NRA needs to get proactive and stop reacting to every mass shooting like it has anything to do with them.

It starts with our kids. The 2A and firearm training/safety should not be some magical thingees you only see on the news when bad things happen or hidden in out of the way gun ranges and clubs, but should be taught in every school in the nation.

Yesterday's trial episode had the Dean Of Students admitting she herself actually led student protests in front of the bakery. Wild.

371 359 Single-family only zoning is an infringement on the property rights of landowners, to pander to the fears of weak-minded suburbanites. Eliminating it is one of the few things California has done right in the last 40 years. Just why the hell do you think you have the right to tell me I cannot build a duplex on a lot I own? You want to control what happens on that lot, I'll listen to offers to buy it. Otherwise, piss off.
---------------------
Well Duplexes are normally rentals which, over time, will reduce the value of single family residences. We do have freedom of association don't we? CA's problem is the five families living in one single family residence. There is plenty of land in CA that could host more homes and reservoirs but the Luddites won't allow that to happen. They prefer stacking people on top of one another to enforce a no fun zone statewide.

Your freedom of association does not trump my property rights. If you want to control what happens on my land, you are welcome to try to buy it from me.

The rock stars from the '60's have remained popular for a longer time than have previously popular artists such as Benny Goodman.

This big question for me is how broad and numerous is support for the mullah-tocracy. Iranians I know say "shallow and few", and the IRCG is "bought and paid for", but they look pretty motivated to me (from afar). The Persian military tradition is obviously longstanding, and their cultural ascendancy is equally longstanding, but the Islamist part of all that is negligible. It's Persian history, not Islamic. When the chips are down, will Iranians fight for the Mullahs?

That too is sad - I can't begin to imagine a really popular non historical film using nearly half century old tunes back in the day. Not having replacement music sorta ... stinks.
--------------------------
Two big reasons it sucks today is (1) drinking age now at 21 (thanks to Fed Hwy Funding), and (2) no one makes money on album sales. I tell my son this every time he wants to perform his band. If kids can't congregate and socialize they will not have any organic music. One should notice the only ones getting greased are rappers.

Unless he's doing some strange kind of misdirection, yes. JackStraw has praised Sundance's effort in collecting data more than his ability to analyze it, which I think is an accurate criticism.

441 The rock stars from the '60's have remained popular for a longer time than have previously popular artists such as Benny Goodman. I think part of that reason is the increased portability of music plus the large population of Baby Boomers. And the music is pretty good too, but I'm rather biased because I'm 29.
Posted by: BackwardsBoy

I agree the Boomers have a lot to do with it. It's also sadly true there just aren't any great young rock bands. ( That I know of, anyway. And I admit, I'm out of touch.)

By the way, some of the best pop music being created these days is in modern country. Some of it sounds like it was pulled through a time machine right off a popular 80s radio station.

Got my first social security check last week. Started drawing it at 62 even though we don't need the money. I figured I had better get what I can before they are forced to cut everyone's check by 20%.

Posted by: The Great White Scotsman at May 15, 2019 09:29 AM (JUOKG)

447 297 BTW, today is George Brett's 66th birthday. He's 4 days older than I, which I've been aware of since noticing his baseball card. I really rooted for him his last batting title - not too old. And, as a lifelong Yankee fan, he ranks with Koufax as the opponent I most feared.
Posted by: Eeyore at May 15, 2019 08:38 AM (VaN/j)

A friend of mine in Missouri assures me that Brett is kind of a fuckhead but he and Rod Carew were probably the best pure hitters since Ted Williams.
Posted by: Captain Hate at May 15, 2019 08:44 AM (y7DUB)

Many of the greatest hitters were assholes. Cobb, Hornsby, Williams himself. The Babe had an endearing streak, but was also a self-indulgent egotist. I don't know who the nicest one would be. Maybe Gehrig or Wagner. Or Musial, perhaps.

452 Ponzi schemes never work. Humans reproduce based on their real perceived economic needs not on the needs of a Ponzi Scheme. The Modern World doesn't run on peasants. Once you can get this through a Marxist head then we will design a government for real progress instead of one consumed about 19th and 15th century technology. But our elite thinkers can't think out of the box they were packaged in at the Ivies.

455 I saw the clip of Beta on the view and his groveling apology for being white and male. I can't express how disgusted I was with his pathetic performance. White leftists, this is not a good look. It won't make those of us un-privileged people like or respect you (I won't even start on how racist and sexiest his whole privilege thing is). We and other sane people will just view you with disdain, at best. And you are just announcing to the salivating SJW predator mob that you are fresh meat.

And his stupidity was in response to a vapid question from Meghan McCain about how no woman could get away with what Beta did. (No, she wasn't referring to his actual crimes but some stupid stuff he said or did.)

Meghan, women today get away with all sorts of inanity, in case you haven't been paying attention.

I feel like I always lose at least a few IQ points on the rare occasions I watch clips from The View.

A declining population can be bad for the economy especially given our massive welfare state. Still, I'm not against a declining population, it would have some benefits in reduced traffic, crowding, pollution (the real kind, not global warming) . It is the replacement part that is insidious. We are being replaced with a more malleable, obedient citizenry and it is picking up steam. Plus they will be increasingly hostile and aggressive towards actual citizens, as we are already seeing.

Yep. I as in boarding school for part of secondary school in deepest darkest Africa, and even the school would arrange for the Muslim girls to have what amounted to a feast in that context at night.

I don't think they actually end up eating any less.

465 314 Brett was an outstanding player. And he will also be enshrined in history for maybe the best-ever on-field player blow-up on the officials, for the "pine tar extends too high on the bat" event (triggered by Yankee's manager Billy Martin IIRC).
Posted by: Gref at May 15, 2019 08:44 AM (AMIL/)

Yes it was Martin. The commissioner ruled that the umpires fucked up by calling Brett out, saying they missed their opportunity to tell him to clean off his bat after he stepped in the batters box, and ordered the game replayed from the point of the home run with Brett still ejected. I'm pretty sure the Royals won.
Posted by: Captain Hate at May 15, 2019 08:49 AM (y7DUB)
_________

Yes to all, you're right. The real problem was Martin was gaming the rule to use it at the optimum moment. He should have protested at the start of the at bat.

It has a certain kinship with the Merkel Boner. (OK, Horde, have your fun with that.) And Johnnie Evers had a lot in common with Billy Martin, though Evers was better. Scrappy 2nd basemen, very smart, and never more than 2 minutes away from a fistfight.
