The Morning Report - 07/10/19

unschbil.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek and as predicted the Democrat-Left-Media Complex is in full freak-out mode over the arrest of convicted pedophile and billionaire Democrat donor Jeffrey Epstein. The phony-baloney outrage directed at Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, who was the man who cut Epstein's original plea deal when he served as the DA for South Florida, and President Trump for not firing him as well as the insinuendos that he was BFF with Epstein are just that - phony baloney. Funny, as in disgusting how nowhere in the torrent of bile and spittle being sprayed at TV cameras and microphones can be found a scintilla of anger and rage at the individual at the center of all of this, and that is Epstein himself.

But, since a judge has ruled that his original victims can now take Epstein to court on civil charges and in light of the fact that he now faces an array of new criminal charges for everything from statutory rape to sex trafficking to kiddie porn, a lot of dirty laundry that has the potential (note the word "potential") to destroy perhaps scores of Democrat-Left-Media elites up to and including Bill Clinton, is going to be exposed to a much wider and attentive audience than back in 2007-8 when the media could still effectively kill the story.

Speaking of Bill Clinton, the impeached and disbarred ex-president released what could best be described as a hostage note attempting to distance himself from Epstein that was so chock full of crafted legalese as to be almost incoherent. Unlike the documented minimum of 27 times that he flew on the infamous "Lolita Express" in the verified company of underage nubiles, that ain't gonna fly Billy-boy.

And for those of you, like I was, who were wondering how Epstein could've got what has been described in the media as essentially a sweetheart deal of a lifetime, John Klar writes in American Thinker:

...But now a mob has been loosed. What is striking about Acosta's case is that he is being excoriated not for doing too much to defend a sex offender but too little to punish or convict - that is, he is being criticized not as a defense attorney, like Sullivan, Pattis, or Adams, but as a prosecutor. Just as defendants and their counsel must weigh their risks of conviction, so too must prosecutors assess the risks and costs of failing to meet that much higher burden of "beyond a reasonable doubt." Epstein served jail time and probation and was compelled to register as a sex offender. Acosta has stated that "the plea deal's results were 'better' than risking a trial, which he said had 'a reduced likelihood of success.' " Not only do the media seek to revisit that prosecutorial discretion, but they have already passed judgment. If Acosta had tried the case and lost, the result would have been horrible, compelling the victims to testify in a new trauma...

Again, one can argue the terms of the agreement vis a vis the nature of the original charges against Epstein or perhaps try and dig into Acosta's past in search of some deep dark secret nudge-nudge-wink-wink, or we can read his reasonable, logical explanation and defense of his actions as a prosecutor. Or, as I think we should do, we can ignore the attempt at deflection, obfuscation and character assassination being hurled at him and elsewhere and concentrate on convicted sex offender and billionaire Democrat donor Jeffrey Epstein and his pals in the Party-Hearty Party. Which is exactly what they do not want you to do, and which is why I am going to, con gusto.

Circling back, yes the media did effectively bury the Jeffrey Epstein story in anticipation that Hillary Clinton would run and win the presidency in 2008, which of course did not come to pass, and yet again in 2016 with the same result. But now, with their stranglehold on being the gatekeepers of what is and what is not news more or less broken, they can no longer ignore or effectively bury this as they did even 10 years ago. Plus, with Trump in office, the media and cultural landscape has undergone a paradigm shift. Unlike Republican presidents past, there is just no way Trump is going to allow them to smear someone on his team let alone him.

There are a couple of things in play here. Yes, I still believe that they are going to do everything they can to link Epstein to Trump and manufacture evidence or failing that fling as much dung as possible in the hopes that like everything else they have tried and failed at, this will be the magic turd that leads to impeachment and removal from office. I also think that the Upstart Maoist Brigade of the Democrats will try and use Epstein to decapitate (figuratively) the Clinton machine and with it, the old guard crypto-socialists of the party to seize control (the open war of words with Palsi Pelosi is a giant neon sign that there is trouble in Democrat paradise on earth). But all of this is not some 11-dimension chess game planned months ago. It's all reactive and smacks of desperation, and not necessarily because of Trump hatred. There's an interesting link postulating that though Epstein was and likely still is a Democrat-Leftist, he's also cunning and conniving. It's not a stretch of the imagination to think that his airplanes, homes and Pedo Island had video cameras hidden in every nook and cranny as, to coin a phrase pregnant with meaning "an insurance policy" or even blackmail. If you think the race to get Weiner's laptop was fast and furious, you ain't seen nothin' yet. And I'd wager the FBI found a lot more interesting things than kiddie porn when they raided his 5th Avenue mansion the other day. Gold, Jerry. And laced with polonium and a one way trip to Fort Marcy Park to anyone who leaks it.

Like many of you, the cynic in me thinks that, even with all of this, not even the lowliest Democrat lowlife goniffing momzer associated with Epstein will ever swing for this, let alone the Clintons. But if the Democrat-Media-Complex thinks that they can take out Trump with this, especially after everything they've tried over the past three years, they're even more clueless than I thought. Basta cosi.

Back down at the border where there is of course no crisis at all (ahem!), Nancy Palsi throws the racism card at Trump vis a vis the citizenship question and a giant brick in the form of Black and Latino approval of it gets hurled back in her mush, Thom Tillis has a momentary lapse into sanity supporting a bill allowing victims of illegals to sue the sanctuary cities from whence they came, two US Marines are a disgrace to the uniform (allegedly), Democrats use Obama-era photos of kids in cages to go after Trump, fresh off of abortions for men, Julian Castro wants pallets of cash for Central American shit-holes and American workers idled, and when Mexicans are x-raying trucks looking for illegals heading north, you know Trump is the one we were waiting for.

Scanning the other items on the Democrat Scandal Sheet, with the attention focused on Jeffrey Epstein, big-time homosexual Democrat donor Ed Buck (remember him?) stands accused of human trafficking and revenge porn, Bro-Fo Omar caught embellishing an anti-American blood libel and the FCC is going after a Leftist non-profit for stealing money that was supposed to go to giving poor kids cable TV. Leftist non-profits; I should Lerner more about those...

And your favorite topic and mine, Official Democrat Party Anti-Semitism, Chiqutia Khruschev's puppet master, this Saikat Chakrabarti freak is catching flak for wearing a t-shirt with the image of Nazi sympathizer Subhas Chandra Bose. But at least he gave us killer stereo speakers, right? And Caroline Glick on the sleazy bastards at the AP smearing American Jews for the evil crime of openly supporting the state of Israel.

Clinton-Obama Coup and Mueller-Congressional Persecution and Cover-Up: David Harsanyi concurs with AG Barr on the Russia hoax, is Horowitz coming at long last, and a House Intel witness accuses Fusion GPS founder of lying under oath.

Civil War 2.0: Antifa's Joo-Hate Division shows up at Christians United For Israel confab and threaten journalist.

Politics: We start with two views on Mayor Buttplug's Achilles heel, his own horrid record as mayor of South Bend as well as his being a hardcore anti-Christian bigot, for never having worked a day in his life, Joe Bidet got very wealthy in politics, trying to slime Cocaine Mitch for having slave owner ancestors, he fires back at NBC with a kill shot and Kamala-Toe's own father says their predecessors owned slaves, more on Joe Bidet and busing which by the way he was absolutely right to oppose, Trump supporting candidate beats GOP-e stooge in North Carolina special, Toothy McBigTits may be stacked but she is a complete idiot, the Leftist/Never-Trump alliance couldn't last and Conrad Black sees Trump going all the way in 2020.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Mike Cernovich echoes my sentiments on what the Epstein thing is all about, Zuckerberg boasts about Facebook interfering in the Irish abortion plebiscite, and the Second Circuit on the battle of Trump and Twitter.

Abortion: Head of Cineplex movie chain tells thugs attempting to get Unplanned removed from the theaters to get bent, and the NEA endorses abortion as a human right. So, killing off the reason for your existence is a human right? Feh.

Foreign Desk: Iran tensions remain as US hits Hezbollah chiefs with sanctions, Farsis crowing about shooting down our drone and the State Department smacked down over wanting to allow Farsi oil to flow to the Chi-Coms. The DC Swamp's lowest level is Foggy Bottom. Besides Hong Kong, there are big anti government protests that no one is covering, or being allowed to cover, on the mainland, EU appoints a bust-out anti-Israel Joo-hater, Trump urged to confront Qatar over terror support, Sweden's insanity leads to mass rape-rape by swarthy immigrants, Kiwis shocked that the New Zealand government lied to them about its gun buy-back scam, Angolan corruptocrats rob American companies then hire DC lobbyists to cover it all up, and Daniel Greenfield cuts to the chase and sums up the Middle East "Palestinian" delusion quite neatly. Must read and bookmark.

DEE-Fense: Another on the F-35 debacle.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Frogs fork over do-re-mi to Muzzy mass killer on some sort of Billy Ayers technicality. France is screwed.

Healthcare: Three links on perhaps our last best chance to get rid of Obamacare for good, Joe Bidet upset about trading off projectile colitis for chronic shingles of the eyes, and the CDC with a warning about some sort of mystery polio-like disease cropping up.

Education: Florida shit-cans principal for Holocaust denial (Palm Beach County of all places, surprise-surprise), and if the SATs were the sole arbiter of college admission, a lot of minority students would not make it.

Feminazism, Transgender Psychosis: Here's a doctor who is one sick mo-fo, and watchdog group warns of MTV's brainwashing our youth with balls of confusion.

Hither and Yon: Netflix loses The Office and Friends and the Left has no clue on American greatness, mostly because it believes it's evil and illegitimate.

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.

So it is not a question of giving it to a Republican, it is a question of getting rid of the district.

35 Currently in hotel in Toronto where I had dinner last night at the bar watching the All Star game with CNN on mute beside the TV tuned to the game. It is very hard to understand how demented anyone would have to be to willfully watch this show. It was all Trump, all anti Trump. Relentlessly talking about polling data more than a year before the democrat nominee is determined. I'm not sure how I would categorize CNN and MSNBC. Certainly not journalism. Definitely not entertainment. Maybe as punishment for not doing a better job protecting the foundations of our country from the mad leftists who we allowed to take over universities, media, and entertainment.

I think it will come down to the power of Pelosi. Meaning, does the old broad want this mouthy little brat gone or not. The old guard will have to weigh if it's worth it to axe her seat and get rid of her, or if they find her stupid, yet high visibility perch worth putting up with. I'd lay odds they aren't going to want her gone. She and her Justice Democrats faction will be worse to deal with if she is purged. But who knows.

I guess the world cup teams are paid. I don't think Olympic teams are paid legally. The last I checked the Ryder Cup team wasn't paid though some of them made a stink about it 20 years ago.


It is amazing how silly our culture can become. People will call this a civil rights issue and completely forget that professional women's soccer has barely survived in this country and many leagues have gone bust. Hell, professional men's soccer has had mostly a shaky existence in this country.

I wonder if a Senator will call for US pro men's teams to get equal pay with men's teams in Europe. It is not fair that men make more simply by playing in Europe.

One last thing. Does the men's world cup team really
need federal dollars? We used to give money to the US Olympic Team. I
am sure quite a few companies get involved in supporting US national
teams as well.

One last, last thing. Manchin did this? This seems more like a Southern CA thing than WV.

professional women's soccer has barely survived in this country and many

shaky existence in this country.

makes sense to me. Hell there are more women than men in this country. If the women spent more or equal on women's sports, would that not give the women more cash?
I am new to this and probably should not be commenting but oh well. So i guess FiFA pays the World Cup winners. A recent article showed that the US men brought in less money than the US women. Ok, but that is because the women win and the US men lose. But if you look at FIFA as a whole, or the respective World Cups, who brings in more money, the men or women? Is the US government going to decide to "make up the difference" on a national level. Forget that the men's World Cup makes absurd millions if not more. The government is going to step in and right a wrong I guess.
Funny that these women are probably at the top of their earning power right now and will likely get lots of endorsements. Who is clamoring to endorse US men's World Cuppers right now?

My favorite hot-take of the Epstein arrest so far: Salon declares it a #MeToo win!


Yes, apparently the on;y way Lefty Feminists can deal with the cognitive dissonance of ignoring Epstein and his buddies having orgies with teen sex slaves on a private island - something that has been known for years - is to claim that they got him with their silly #MeToo movement.

Spoiler alert: this all happened because icky Mike Cernovich, the guy who produced an MRA documentary, filed to have the Epstein court records unsealed. It was only a year after he started this that others joined his suit.

Oh, the irony that someone like Cernovich is making more inroads into naming, shaming, and prosecuting creepy, rapey men (Epstein, pedos, Congressional sexual assault payoff fund) than bigmouths like Alyssa Milano and Amanda Marcotte - LOLGF!

FIFA does pay but the national soccer clubs are generally the recipients and the soccer clubs then pay the players.

The amount of bad news wouldn't be this great if good people would do something to stop it. Alas, corruption seems to be the norm. I sometimes wonder just what America would have naturally evolved into had our enemies been stopped when that effort would've been far easier. What if the Frankfurt School had been closed? What if Little Billy Ayers had been prosecuted as he should've been? What if Bronco Bama had been reported upon truthfully?

How much better off would we be? How much less needless strife would we read about every day? A lot, I'm betting.

Heh. True story:

My great aunt, who died almost 20 years ago at nearly 90 told me this story: when she was a very little girl, she was walking with her grandfather. They passed two old black men. The men and my gg grandfather exchanged pleasantries and went on their way. She asked him, "Who were those men?" He said, "That was Dade and Dude." She then asked, "What is their last name?" (like kids do - continual follow-up questions). He answered her. She then said, "That's the same as our name. How do they have our last name too?" He said, "Because we used to own them."

It was put together by mostly liberals I would guess since it was main stream Hollywood. I never said the show was left wing. They did have a lesbian couple etc and gushed about George Stephanopolous in the first season but that didn't bother me. My point was what was once considered liberal is now problematic. Hell Larry Wilmore wrote for The Office and many of the creators and actors say the tired line "they couldn't make it these days".

The men's team has not been doing so well in recent years.. So the revenues from women's team are on par with the men's team.. the women have actually been winning..

But.. the revenues from women's games are much less than men's when they win.

The women's world cup brought in about $80 million in revenue.. the last men's - $4 Billion

Women actually got a higher percentage of the take than men did.. but it is a paltry sum compared to what men's soccer brings in.

306 Apropos of the "hate crimes" unit investigating vandalizing posters, is it now the Law of New York Cityland that it is illegal to voice distaste for gays? She is, obviously, a distasteful beeoch for reasons entirely unrelated to her sex preference, i.e. being an obnoxious narcissist intent on bashing America, our President and anyone who doesn't want everything, all the time to be a "celebration" of gayness.

As tenuous and malignant as the whole concept of "hate crimes" is, it now seems that Double Secret Probation is being extended to symbols. And, to complete the circle, symbolic expression is now officially "violence."

So now, apparently the State can deem you to have committed Violent Hate by a purely symbolic expression if distaste for gays.

And can anyone really tell me that the whole point of putting her mug on posters wasn't a hearty Fuck You to the President, and by extension, everyone in the country who supports him and the MAGA agenda? But punching back is a hate crime. FFS.

316 76 The WSJ had a good editorial on Acosta that walks through the facts and circumstances. Given the situation he got the best deal possible without putting the victims through a lot of unnecessary pain. Epstein received a 13 month sentence and has to register for life as a sex offender.

IIANM his 13 months consisted of unsupervised day release where he could go into the office and work, returning to 'prison' only to sleep.

323 The primary reason that I do NOT believe that this renewed indictment of Epstein has anything to do with Trump at all, not in its motivation, not in its effect:

Everything Epstein did has been KNOWN for 10 years. The rapes, the coverups, the honeytraps, the names of everyone involved. Getting Epstein to talk isn't about finding out any "new" information - INVESTIGATORS HAVE KNOWN EVERYTHING EPSTEIN DID FOR YEARS.

I'd even go so far as to say that the only reason the raid was executed on his house was to get hard, physical, legally admissible evidence of the pictures and other info that they already knew that he had. So why do all this to get Epstein to talk? Not to find out anything new; but to get Admissible Testimony in Court that can be used against those who were in it with him.

So the reason that this cannot be Trump, is that the FBI and everybody else involved has known every name for at least 10 years. There are no true "surprises" to come, this is not a fishing expedition. If Trump had been involved, it all would have been leaked out in 2016 - but there's nothing on him to leak. Never was, never will be.

The FBI KNOWS THAT. Has always known it.

Still won't prevent the MSM from trying, but this is an important point. The Access Hollywood tape would have been released in July and then strong allegations of Trump's time with Epstein could have been released in October.

But then, with Hillary running, she wouldn't have wanted too much attention on Bill's involvement either.

Once Clinton was defeated, though, I could have imagined any sort of allegations around this coming out in 2017 from some crazy Resistance type. It wouldn't have needed to be directed by Clinton, especially with the drubbing of opinion she's received since losing to Literally Hitler.

There's a balance of things, but I think you're right. If Trump was even remotely involved, this would have come out long before the midterms.

Just because they media will try and tie this to Trump doesn't mean his arrest is a plot against Trump. They try to tie anything and everything to Trump.

Ben Sasse has been pushing on this for a long time. He grilled Barr about it during Barr's nomination hearing and Barr said he would continue the work that Rosenstein had begun to bring the case.

I don't think this is a plot against Trump in any way.

That's a big rock to look under, with lots of creepy crawlies. Could it be that the right thing is being done for once? I hate to even entertain that thought because it might get my hopes up that the despicable players in DC would finally get exposed and de-powered (yes, that is too a word).

If I've learned anything in my 29 years is that if you always expect to be disappointed, you'll never be disappointed.

I'm reading Vasily Friedman's novel Life and Fate set in the USSR during WWII. In one scene a big shot Commies is having a going away party as he leaves for the front. A guest looking through a picture album stumbles across a photo of the big shot at his desk behind which is a huge portrait of Stalin. The big shot's four year old son has drawn a huge mustache on Stalin and otherwise defaced the portrait in the photo. Another guest at the party is the big shot's good buddy who is in the NKVD. Although some party guests try to downplay the incident, the big shot knows that he is in danger and denies the boys will be boys excuse and denounced his four year old for malicious hooliganism.

Boy, I'm glad that could never happen in the US.

359 I stay out of the soccer conversations here, because I understand most here don't enjoy the game. I've been a fan for years, but mostly for the men's game. It filled the gap when the NFL went all SJW for me as well. I've been to many Mens National Team games, but avoid attending the womens games for a variety of reasons. The quality of the game is actually better in the womens game because it lacks (for the most part) the "histronics" of the men. But the speed, passing and overall excitement is not the same.

One very salient point I haven't seen mentioned is that the women are allowed to participate in the Olympics without age/professional restrictions. The men must be members below the U23 age level. Hmmm seems a little, shall we say, unfair?

Otherwise, my response to these Bless Your Hearts athletes is the same as to others who wish to tell me how I should think. Shut up and play.

You mistake my meaning - What I assume is that for the last 10 -15 years, the FBI has known everything there is to know about one of the most corrupt and disgusting cases in US history, and for various reasons, including it giving them leverage over important and powerful people, they have actively participated in the coverup.

Now the coverup has been blown, and they are attempting to make the best of it, and acting like it was their idea.

I think, perhaps because you work so hard to cover it, how truly inconsequential the MSM and all of this talk has become. Cernovich is telling the truth, the Media only cover it because of the Trump angle; but the MSM are idiots who increasingly, no one even listens to outside of the NYC-DC axis. What they say means nothing. They are not the SDNY, they have no influence at all on the actual legal case.

In the Real, Legal World, the SDNY knows that Trump is not involved - because they have ALWAYS known Trump was not involved. And Epstein is not going to come up with anything new to them, because they have known everything Epstein has done for at least 15 yeas.

they just need testimony that can be presented in a courtroom.
