The Morning Report - 6/12/19

demstoca.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek so here we go. First up it's the crisis at the border where the Democrat-Left-Media Complex has IMHO completely lost the narrative in being forced to admit that there is a crisis at our border, that the tariff threat against Mexico actually accomplished in days what was claimed was impossible for decades, and that mass illegal immigration brings crime, disease and economic catastrophe to the citizenry and many other ills that ultimately destroy our national identity and sovereignty. But still, they persisted!

Pat Leahy, who alive looks worse than Thad Cochran now dead for a week, led the Democrats in blocking emergency funds to deal with the catastrophe at our southern border. Well, they had to, I guess because a) despite all of the above they can never concede they were wrong and b) they cannot give President Trump a political victory which really is not even on his radar since everything he has done in the past two and half years is for the good of the nation. Plus, swamping the nation with millions of people to create a giant new underclass is the political end-game for them, especially if they can populate Texas and/or Florida. The destruction of America via the dissolution of its culture and the concomitant balkanization as well as collapsing the economy is also a big part of that equation for the purely ideologically-driven on the Left.

And that leaves the question of the putative opposition party, today's GOP, and whither are they bound. They did everything they could to derail Trump from before the election right up to the midterms, and even now, for a host of reasons. There isn't a bureaucracy or pork project they'll say no to and they have no problems with open borders since the corporatists at the Chamber of Commerce want cheap labor, either by closing factories here and opening them in third world shit-holes, or importing third world shit-holes in the form of cheap illegal alien labor here. The election of Trump meant the American people want that stopped. So, for the GOP it will be a time of choosing: it's either to do what we demand of you in return for our vote or get a primary challenge. The Chamber of Commerce, like other seemingly reliable bastions of American values is not what it once was. It is working hand in glove with the globalist enterprise to dismantle America, its values and culture. It presents a danger, albeit on another front, that potentially is as dangerous as Big Brother/Big Tech. It needs to be neutralized, like yesterday.

Rounding out this category, Bro-Fo Omar continues spewing anti-American newspeak about ICE, one Texas town on the front line has had enough, and two good essays on the homeless and illegal alien crises as well as holding politicians accountable for the criminality unleashed by their "sanctuary" policies. Amen.

On to the Clinton/Obama Anti-Trump Coup and Congressional Persecutions where the Dems vote to hold AG William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt for refusing to appear before their sham kangaroo court, and that's funny because back in '95 Joe Bidet heaped praise on William Barr as the best AG ever, lead Watergate co-conspirator and crook John Dean's (adding that to the AOS Style Guide) appearance was a disaster for the Democrats, the narrative about Christopher Steele being an impeccable intelligence source also evaporates, and, surprise! The FBI's notes pertaining to Hilary Clinton's e-mails go missing, unexpectedly, as Judicial Watch was about to get its hands on them.

Dem Leftist Scandal Sheet: Joe Bidet must have gotten onto a rotten batch of paste because fresh off being ripped for plagiarism last week, he goes ahead and swipes creepy porn shyster Michael Avenatti's campaign slogan. Also, what the hell is wrong with Virginia? A Dem who was charged with having sex with a minor wins his primary and some anti-lobbying Progressive group endorses a Lindsay Graham challenger who turns out to be an ex big time corporate lobbyist.

Civil War 2.0: Oberlin's comeuppance. May a thousand Caterpillar dozers bloom and Rachel Corrie the campus into the ground.

Politics: The Joe Bidet follies continue where, get this, he promises he's going to cure cancer if he's elected. Meanwhile, Trump lit into him with a crude but 100% accurate description of his being selected by Obama, and lastly the flip-flopping moves from abortion to the Chi-Coms where suddenly, the paste-eating goniffing girl-groper sees them as a threat. And this is the guy the Dems are rigging the primaries to win? Elsewhere, Fauxca-Has-Been's tax plan is unworkable, punitive in the extreme and unconstitutional, but Chief Justice Roberts has a red pen for that. In any case, despite the buzz that her star is rising as high as her cheekbones, she's ain't polling well in her own home state. Meanwhile, Team Trump is considering putting resources into blue stronghold Oregon. Why not? Rush Limbaugh said yesterday he should even travel early and often to California. I agree. This President has done so many things that defy the so-called conventional wisdom that have turned out to be wildly successful. Can he win the state despite it being a lock for the Democrats? Maybe not, but by shining a light on the abject misery, squalor and corruption, he will force the Dems there and elsewhere to defend their policies that turned what once was a golden state in every sense of that word into Zimbabwe on the Pacific.

Also, with an ego and delusions exceeding her girth, Tank Abrams might actually announce she too is running in 2020. She's also pissed at Joe Bidet presuming she'll get in the back of his bus. Lastly Chiquita Khruschev, the woman of the people who already earns gets a paycheck for $174,000 a year wants another $4,500, but it's not a raise-raise, and some Maoist front group is all in to pack the SCOTUS. Another 10 like Clarence Thomas and I'm down for that struggle.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: More Google blacklisting revealed, more calls to stand up to YouTube, TuCa notes the Farsi Ferret's book is up there on the NY Times Bestseller List but has yet to sell a copy, NBC names college radio DJ Rachel Maddow as a prexy debate moderator, Google shielding Jussie Galore from critical search words, NY Times ends political cartoons in the international edition after the backlash over the anti-Semitic ones but describes Milton Friedman as some sort of "alt-right" extremist, and John Cleese lights up Twitter. Good for him. Finally.

Guns: Tom Massie seeks rolling back restrictions and arming teachers.

Abortion: Incorrect prenatal testing leads to more women aborting their babies.

Foreign Desk: A big story with huge implications about the Brits covering up a major Hezbollah terror plot in order to preserve the Iran Nuke Sellout, Japanese PM Abe will go to Teheran to meet the Mullahs (why?!), State Department says "pfft" to Javad Zarif, Iran and Afghanistan nuking up together, will the Chi-Coms send tanks to Hong Kong?, Trump floating more tariffs at Chi-Coms if they don't come to the table at the G-20, another look at the Chi-Com Muslim concentration camps, Stuart Smalley's Buick on loan to the anti-Brexiteers?, and a look at Huawei, big tech and the Chi-Com plot to dominate the world.

DEE-Fense: Democrats in the House in a possible budget showdown over DoD money going to the border wall.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: SCOTUS to Muslim terrorist in Gitmo: learn to code.

Domestic Desk: Dems to Gold Star families: FOAD, Mike Bogren withdraws his name from judicial nomination but Margot Cleveland of The Federalist who is related to him defends him from the accusations of being a bigot, NYC's corrupt scofflaw follies and a look at two Democrat metropolitan shit-holes.

The Economy: UAW and Anti-VW groups blasting agitprop over Tennessee airwaves.

Healthcare: Surprisingly, the AMA continues to be against assisted suicide.

Education: Open letter to AG Barr to go after the SJP and two essays on what today's education is really all about.

Red Greens: Daniel Greenfield on the glaciers are melting lie, Dems keep pimping that Green New Deal, union boss sez LA mayor Garcetti's own version of the GND is turning people off big time, and Obama fluky Gina McCarthy is all bitter about the current EPA touting industrial development and environmentalism going hand in hand.

Feminazism, Homosexualization: Yes, drag queens and kids do not mix well.

Hither and Yon: Chicago Field Museum has Lo-T-Rex, minority kids and spelling bees, Salena Zito on the road again, this time at a rural gas station, Christian Toto profiling a sci-fi writer who rejects PC, Dennis Prager on Leftism making people meaner and finally, the 52nd anniversary of Israel's incredible 6 Day War victory.

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.

31 I just saw that the women's soccer team scored 13 goals against world-class competitor Thailand.

The US women's team is roughly equal to a perfectly average, nothing special 10th grade boys soccer team (nothing mean in that statement- they routinely practice and lose against the boys who can't drive yet). Can you imagine how bad Thailand's women's team is?

We must face the hard, ugly facts. We are not ever knitting this country together again. The stitches are broken forever. Of course, we all know that here. But we must all face reality. It's either normal America that we've always known, or communist America (little c for now). The Democrat Party is terrifying. Absolutely frightening in where it stands now, on all fronts. And the brainwashing that has occurred with our own citizens, coupled with the importation of so many millions of people who care nothing about the USA, only what they can take from her and/or how they can destroy her, tells me we need to face reality. Every day, I read these headlines and see what stands for the Democrat Party in 2019. I'm horrified. There. Is. No. Compromise. We must end this phony United We Stand pretense...because it's deader than dead. And getting worse by the day. /rant

37 I appreciate Mr. Kantor's essay and am sorry that he has to go under a pseudonym to write it. I see his point about progressive "Sunday school" teaching the basics of the leftist faith, but it's not the best term to use. Religious Sunday school students learn about the Bible and Jesus, topics which are not allowed in progressive k-12 education. Heck, they aren't even allowed a moment of silence. And yes, I see the dangers he is pointing out.

OK. I don't own a cordless drill, a step ladder, or a set of screwdrivers. I do own a corded drill and several hand drills, including a couple braces and bits and a Miller's Fall "eggbeater" drill, and a bunch of non-matched screwdrivers, including a couple I made myself from scratch...Don't need or have the room to store a ladder.

So under those rules I'd be just another useless, toolless millennial, despite having a basic blacksmithing setup, a descent set of traditional hand-tools for furniture making, and the tools for carving rifle stocks as well as bowls, spoons, etc. Also spent four and a half years doing tile for a living.

64 Yes, Donald Trump should go to Oregon, and also California.

For one, to revive the moribund Republican Parties in both states, and two, to make the Democrats spend money and time defending what they feel is "theirs".

And make the defend the more outrageous stuff that has happened in California. Taking land by eminent domain to build the now moribund high-speed rail line, and not paying out to those whose land was taken.
The terrible health situation in those immigrant rich cities.
The actual falling standard of living for many people in California and Oregon.
Antifa in the streets of Portland, interfering with Law Enforcement. Abetted by their own city government.

A lot to defend. Make them.

77 The not all the way Commie candidate for Chair of the Board of Supervisors for my county won the primary which means that he is almost sure to be the winer in November.

Soro's candidate for Commonwealth's attorney won, also. I ended up picking a name out of the air because I didn't know the candidates going in - and I looked, I really did, trying to find out what races I was going in to vote for, and couldn't. So I did not look up these candidates. The incumbent has been there since 2003 and I can't say that "justice" in the county is awesome, but he is not a full on commie. The challenger, who I ended up voting for, is a West Point graduate, but he is hella woke. Way to go Ol' Virginny.

151 Trump Campaign Considering Putting Resources in Oregon

LOL. Trump won a majority of the vote in Oregon last time - outside the county that Portland is in.

Unfortunately, as long as Portland votes for the Democrats with North Korean-level unanimity, beating the D in Oregon will be hard to do.

152 President Trump unleashes the kraken on the emp. for life Xi. Treats Xi as a lackey telling him to show up at the g20 or else. Point is President's goal has always been to sever ties with China. China never will agree and 45 knew this.
Xi thought he was playing us and he got played. Trump was using the time to arrange new lines of trade and supply while Xi wasted China's time. Sucks to be GM. Reported that R&D shops of American concerns already closing China branches.

In fact he said the whole Democrat Party is "smoking something". He didn't really care for Trump at first, but now seeing what he's done economically he has his vote. He also lamented the fact that people automatically assume if they're Spanish speaking they will vote Democrat. Not true, he said.

174 Despite the last two decades or so of progress in significantly reducing this stereotype [that gays recruit kids], the progressive movement, as it tends to do so often, has pushed the boundaries too far. This deeply embedded fear of what might happen to children has bubbled back up to the surface.

The current LGBT movement's fixation on child drag queens and transgender identity in children certainly appears to validate Bryant and her day's Religious Right. The sudden prominence of adult gay men dressed as caricatures of women and reading to preschool-aged children has resurfaced this long-held fear.


The thing is, they DO recruit.
Zombie has mentioned this, providing an anecdote where a very prominent SF lesbian casually talked about it at a party - that they seduce teen girl athletes because if you get them young (while their sexual identity is being formed) it will stick.

Same goes for Milo's tale of being seduced as a 14 year old (IIRC). Same with Obama's Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings, who recounted assisting a runaway gay teen. Heck, there's even the progressive favorite, "Call Me By Your Name," (teen professor's son seduced by gay graduate student) and Eve Ensler's "Vagina Dialogue" (11 year old seduced by adult lesbian). Just this week an unnamed Milton, MA HS soccer coach was fired for texting provocative questions/invitations to female students (they messed up and used the female pronoun - seemed the local news didn't want to reveal is was a lesbian coach hitting on girls).

In the gay community, these teen - adult seductions are romanticized, normalized; they don't have to wave signs saying "Yeah, we recruit by seducing teens" for you to see what they're doing. I consider the kiddie drag queen stuff prepping the battlespace for seduction, the perfect way to get around a parent's Stranger Danger training.

There was a horrifying story years ago when I lived in Buffalo, where a predatory lesbian teacher was preying on teenage girls. Teacher was white and her victims were all black girls from the 'hood, with little parental supervision.

Teacher was caught red-handed by the po-po after a parent finally got suspicious and questioned her daughter. And the teacher walked. Skated scot-free. The commie Buffalo News ran a full-bore onslaught in defense of the teacher. Word was the cops were furious (shades of Jessie Smollett.)

The whole thing disgusted and horrified me. Something in the air up there...some time later, a male band teacher from my own old high school was stone-cold busted with a female teen and also walked away a free man.

Exactly what the Washington Post said a couple of days ago - that The Polls show that any of the Democratic candidates would easily beat Trump.

I approve - the D's never figure out that goosing the polls is a problem, because then they start believing their own polls. The message the Washington Post is sending is that the D's don't have to care about electability - they can go for the wokest, most intersectional candidate they can, since anyone can beat Trump.

If it wasn't for Hannity's guests, like Tom Fitton, Congress would be slothing along as ignorant as ever. Judicial Watch is fighting for the country, not just us. His FOIA requests are slowly revealing how dirty it all is. I agree that it will be a miracle if anyone gets indicted, but if there is any chance of cleaning some of this up, it's with the Trump administration.

" Finally, Conservatives should find comfort in Trump's unimpeachable record of screening judicial candidates. Yes, the Republican- controlled Senate continues to honor the blue-slip tradition at district court level, but in a deal reportedly made with Michigan's two Democratic senators Trump got his pick for one district court slot- and Bogren was Trump's choice. If nothing else that should tell you something."

I did not want Bogren as I feared he wasn't conservative etc., but now I feel really ignorant as I didn't know that there is suppose to be an agreement or negotiation with senators for district court nominees. So the Dems get a say on who we nominate?

Hannity can be a broken record, yes. But this is a tactic to continue to remind people what is going on. If he said some of things he has uncovered just once on air, it would dissolve into the ether.

By bringing it up over and over, people won't forget it.

That is his tactic. Whether you like him or not, he's getting through to some Americans. Ratings are important so that more Americans hear the voices of his guests, like Fitton, Sarah Carter, Carter Page, John Solomon, Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing, etc. He has not let up on this.

224 lol. A Democratic strategist mentioned yesterday that Biden polls so well against other Democrats because the entire field is weak, including Biden. He thinks this whole approach of putting Biden out there and falsely slapping a "moderate" label on him is a mistake. He has a long history in Washington that's going to keep dribbling out and hurt him. That's before we get to his extemporaneous gaffes. He honestly thinks that with this economy there is no way Biden beats Trump. He actually wondered whether Trump was trolling Biden because there is so much oppo research that's damaging, Biden would be handicapped electorally by it and spend all his time on defense. He's actually looking past Trump when there is a clean slate to run a younger Democrat...

If the strokes are true, he's a fool to keep going.
He is like Hillary. Falling and falling apart before our eyes. They want that brass ring, no matter what it takes.

I wonder if this is true, but it's fun trivia:

"It is what children obtained by reaching out from a merry-go-round (round about?)to snatch a ring from a device that was next to the merry-go-round. You had to hold on with one hand, reach out and grab the ring with perfect timing to get your prize...

We should add that the rings came down a gravity-fed chute, and all of them were iron, except one - the brass ring, which gave you a free second ride as your prize. All the rings were collected by the ride operator and reloaded (in random order) for another chance at the brass ring. So the prize was not merely for being dextrous or long-armed (any child older than, say, 7, could pull a ring) but there was a considerable element of longshot chance involved. The metaphorical use of the phrase "going for the brass ring" has a little of that longshot buried in it...
Writers on the history of carousels say that the

Victorian carousel and the associated brass ring developed from a medieval device for training knights. The knights rode horses in a circle while trying to spear a ring with their lances."

241 Greetings fappers and fappees. Great and terrible MoRep as usual, JJ.

About this, not to fuss too much: The election of Trump meant the American people want that stopped. So,
for the GOP it will be a time of choosing: it's either to do what we
demand of you in return for our vote or get a primary challenge.


We need a stronger message to the weakling GOPe: You either get with the MAGA program or we won't just primary you, we'll work to get your unresponsive asses tossed out of office. A primary challenge is merely an excuse for the Progressives-in-disguise to begin lying to us, who'll then revert back to their radical, anti-American private policies once they get re-elected. We've seen this happen for decades.


This shit has gone on long enough. We need to start demanding that our government start working for our interests, and by "our" I mean the average American family who seeks nothing more than a secure job with a future, the equal application of the law, to be left alone to pursue happiness, who don't want their children brainwashed into false beliefs and/or sexualized by school, and a drastic reduction in the needless size, expense and intrusiveness of Washington.

Nothing less will do.

People like Hannity and Tucker Carlson (and to an extent Limbaugh too) are basically "gateway conservatives."

To do this properly, they have to go back to the basics repeatedly because they can't assume that you already know it. That's why we find them repetitive and dull.

I see his point about progressive "Sunday school" teaching the basics of the leftist faith, but it's not the best term to use. Religious Sunday school students learn about the Bible and Jesus, topics which are not allowed in progressive k-12 education. Heck, they aren't even allowed a moment of silence. And yes, I see the dangers he is pointing out.

You can keep throwing out all your kooky, anti Trump hate. But an honest person looks at that and asks for proof. The fact is, there is none. Bombastic? Yes. Some kind of existential threat? Seriously? Look at what he's done on the economy, trade, our companies, manufacturing, jobs, wages, foreign policy, etc. etc.

for each night time op-ed slot, Tucker, Hannity, and Ingraham, there is almost always something to take away from them.

Last night (and the night before) Ingraham covered the "immigrants" being dropped into the US from Africa, the Congo area. There are a ton in San Antonio and they are trying to air drop them into other states. Portland, Maine pronounced they would welcome all illegals, and now they are saying no. They say they are stretched way beyond their capacity. The governor ran on that. And now they are blocking it. So Portland is overrun with African illegals.

90% take up the city run shelters in Portland.

So now San Antonio is looking for other cities to dump them...

Tucker, strangely, is covering the UFO's (not saying alien, but odd) and he is bringing on more and more folks who seem valid. He's not saying aliens, but shows the footage, more as he gets it, of what the Airforce pilots are witnessing. Defies physics as we know it. Pretty interesting stuff. The last guest said it just couldn't be China or Russia with that technology.

Hannity does his duty to expose the left. So does Tucker and Ingraham. Again, good for them. Commenting here is great, but their shows reach millions more Americans each day. If it wasn't for Fox...

He may actually be more appealing than her. She was an absolute terrible candidate.

Agree--Trump has a lock on his loyalists, and the anti-Trump hardcore will vote for whomever is given to them. All that to say that it won't likely be a runaway election, strong economy notwithstanding--the last several elections have convinced me that people will actually vote *against* their wallet.

1. The handover agreement in 1997 said the Chicoms would not eff around with the institutions for 50 years. "One country, two systems" yada yada.

2. The Chicoms now are pushing a law through the HK legislature to allow defendants to be tried in the mainland judicial system vice staying at home. The easier to disappear you, don't you see.

3. Now open rioting in response.

I read her piece, and while it has some good points, she never addresses the one issue that really sank him. It wasn't just that he "zealously represented his clients". That is understood, and can be forgiven. But in the hearings, he was asked directly whether he thought it really was fair to equate someone who had Roman Catholic beliefs to someone who was in the KKK. The constitutional difference should be screamingly obvious, but all he said was "I stand by my comparison."

That single answer, all by itself, was enough to place him right up there with Gillibrand as someone who thinks Religious Faith can be Unconstitutional - and to me, disqualified him forever as someone I can tolerate in the Federal Judiciary. and Cleveland never addressed that issue.

Not sure I follow your comment. Do you propose the US goes to war with China to defend HK?

I am saying I doubt China in 1997 would have gone to war with the UK over Hong Kong. I could be wrong but most countries don't start ww3 over the status quo.

But to be creditable, to affect the thinking of the Chinese leadership, your threat has to be real. So you think war was the right choice? Instead of a deal?


And, today? If the HK population doesn't want to fight for their freedoms, we should go do it for them? That way, we aren't "ceding crap" .

357 Tucker, strangely, is covering the UFO's (not saying alien, but odd) and he is bringing on more and more folks who seem valid. He's not saying aliens, but shows the footage, more as he gets it, of what the Airforce pilots are witnessing. Defies physics as we know it. Pretty interesting stuff. The last guest said it just couldn't be China or Russia with that technology.

Hence the need for Space Force.

I have not followed what is going on their today and did not comment on it. I said I thought the Brits should have held onto HK 22 years ago and not just give it up. I realize there was an agreement but they probably could have don't a better job of arguing their side. I found it sad to see the Union Jack lowered and the Communist flag raised.

359 I did enjoy the Selina Zito essay.
It reminds me of what a bubble she must endure. She has a Jeep, has a flat tire and what? No spare? She can't exercise her Grrrlll power and change it? She whines about having to spend 5 1/2 hours in a place she drove through before and ignored and suddenly discovered that the residents were not going to slaughter her and throw her bones to dogs?
Please. I'm completely unimpressed.

Thank you JJ, how you manage to put up the indispensable Morning Report leaves me grateful as hell.

Note to self: Hit the tip jar today.

360 316 Re: Finding America at a Back-Roads Gas Station - Nice story, Salena Zito is so great.

Insty has linked several times to the author of a book called "Dignity" that contains photos and anecdotes about people a guy met when he set off on a 6 year journey around America.

Blue Highways is another great anecdotal read about this country and its "back roads."

362 The Houston news I watch had a story on mumps appearing amongst the Harris County jail inmates. They showed some statistics about how the CDC reported mumps cases jumped around 2005 and continued ever since, and never mentioned that was when the Dems took control of the House and Senate, leading into the Obama administration. Then they suggested (with a straight face) that the best way to prevent mumps is to get immunized, never mentioning that nearly every US kid gets that immunization.


So where are the mumps cases coming from? It's a mystery!

Thanks
