The Morning Report - 8/7/19

aslclem.jpg

Good morning, kids. A commenter, whose name I apologize for not remembering, remarked yesterday evening (paraphrasing) "we wake up, have bacon and eggs, send the kids to school, walk the dog, go to work, come home and everything seems just fine, and then we turn on the internet to find out we're on the verge of civil war." Well, that is exactly right. Unfortunately both parts of that observation are indeed happening and they are not in the least contradictory. At the risk of repeating myself from yesterday, in 2016 we the people elected Trump to stop the madness of the 100-year project to fundamentally destroy the nation as founded, and for that mortal sin, we are witnessing the reaction to that rejection by the Democrat-Left-Media-Globalist-Deep State Complex. The question is, is it their death rattle (to the extent that the underlying evil that infects their core beliefs can ever be killed off) or the hours before an imminent banzai charge?

Whatever it is, there is no doubt that the ramping up of violent rhetoric and the concomitant violence it has engendered since Trump was elected and arguably going further back into the Obama eight-year reign of error can be 100% laid at the feet of the Left. And by that I mean its political and media leadership. From typical smear tactics and mere lying to the never-before treasonous abuse of the instrumentalities of government to overthrow this president and undo a legal election, everything they have used to thwart this President's legal ascension to the office has failed, and spectacularly so. The horrific shootings in Texas and Ohio have now sent them over the edge, both in terms of a new tack in attempting to take him down by pimping him as the leader of some mythical "white supremacist" movement and conveniently as yet another pretext to destroy the Second Amendment. And the GOP-e, true to form, is reverting to its usual position of curling up into a ball and letting the left stomp all over it. More on that in a bit.

Rush Limbaugh has been saying for the past three years that regarding Trump, this is what fighting back in the rhetorical sense looks like. It's not pretty, (although his Tweets and retorts are glorious after decades of Republicans just taking their lumps) but it sure as hell is effective. With the media now denuded of the ability to take him down and what there was of its credibility in tatters, and the Democrat Party completely off the rails in terms of anything remotely resembling sane policy proposals or reasoned criticism of their opponents, they can collectively do one of two things: Admit defeat and enter into a period of introspection and reform, or hit the accelerator into "Ludicrous Speed." Guess which one they'll choose.

At this stage, I think they've gone from doing and saying things that they might not believe merely to rile up their base to actually guzzling the Kool-Aid like there's no tomorrow. Seriously, what possible reason could Cory Booker have for not accepting the President's conciliatory remarks in the wake of the shooting? I mean, when even the New York Times is bullied into changing a relatively anodyne headline (forget that the article itself was rabidly anti-Trump) for one that slams the President as a gun nut, things are going downhill. James Hodgkinson (whom Dick Durbin has still not been called to account for his relationship with) nearly massacred a dozen or so GOP congressmen at a softball field, and that was two years ago already. And with that mongoloid-looking racialist Joaquin Castro doxxing a list of San Antonio-area Trump donors and supporters, he's not so coyly throwing chum in water. Hell, this Reza Aslan clown has openly called for the extermination of the President and everyone who voted for him. With that, I ask, where are we to find common ground? How are we to reconcile our differences? It truly pains me to say this but the obvious answer is that we can't. The party that embraces death wants that for us.

Angelo Codevilla over at American Greatness has come to the same conclusion:

...But since the ruling class' condemnations of conservatives as racists, environmental criminals, and would-be terrorists are becoming well-nigh universal, the probability of deadly attacks on conservatives, of intolerable convictions or absolutions, and assassinations, rises to certainty. So does corresponding demand for protection and revenge.

It would be surprising were political words from on high not to be among the factors that trigger mentally ill persons to act out their fantasies...

...We know that our ruling class having largely made government into a partisan thing, America has crossed the threshold of revolution. While we have no way of knowing what lies ahead, we know that the spiral of political violence has already taken its first fateful turns, and that the logic of our partisan ruling class is pushing for more.

Daniel Greenfield over at FrontPage Mag:

...Identity politics was born out of an effort by leftist activists to identify and mobilize potential supporters by breaking down a sense of national solidarity along the lines of group victimhood. Every act of terror breaks down national solidarity further and strengthens the appeals to race over nationality.

Lessons about tolerance, white privilege and racial consciousness don't end racism. They spread it...

I think it's gone beyond the point of saying that the Left is playing with fire. They have now started a fire and whether or not it burns down a room or turns into Dresden 1945 remains to be seen. And on another cheery note, even if things remain more or less on an even keel even after the 2020 election, assuming that the President is re-elected, one day, the Democrats are going to win back the White House (G-d forbid) and perhaps one or more Houses of Congress. What do you think they are going to do then? I guarantee you that a future President Toothy McBigTits with a House and Senate chock full of Angela Davises are not going to be concerned about the limits of what they can and cannot do as outlined in the Constitution. They'll probably torch it like you'd burn your 30-year mortgage after it's been paid off.

Any way you slice it, the situation is in serious doubt. G-d I need a friggin' drink. Happy Wednesday.

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.

One thing I never experience is feeling sorry for Prince Charles. The ugly dude has led a life very, very few have lived and has truthfully done nothing for it. He spends his time meddling in ridiculous global warming hysteria, while trotting back to one of his castles. He's a lucky jackass. And he should thank the heavens for what he has...promotion or no.

I don't want this taken the wrong way, like me inciting violence or anything....

Some years ago Chuck and his mistress turned wife Camilla were in a car that was surrounded by protestors. Brit protestors. The kind that riot if their soccer team loses protestors. They were rather vocal and kinetic.

Photos showed Chuck with a look on his face that I think betrayed something he never ever felt before: mortal fear mixed with perhaps some indignation that the lowborn smallfolk DARED to do this to him.

As you say, his is a life of entitlement and unearned merit, which cannot help but corrupt a person. I think a lot of people would have done some soul searching after that episode, but Chuck...nope.

35 I'm an adult leader in three BSA units (one cub, one Boy Scout, and one family Scout). I read the pedophile link with a lot of concern.

A difficulty we've faced is getting parents engaged as leaders - I'd say about 80-90% of the parents just drop their kids off and go to Starbucks or whatever. That leaves the Scouts alone with, frankly, people who at least one of my units doesn't have the manpower to backcheck via YPT guidelines.

BSA is starting to circle the drain, sadly.

36 The roots of Communism were evangelical -- the self-contained Christian-Utopian farm communities of the 19th century inspired by Welsh social reformer Robert Owen. Marx extracted the Christianity and inserted the notion of social vengeance. It was Marx who introduced the idea that opponents to Communism should not be engaged in debate but ignored or better yet vilified. This led to the Marcuse's "repressive tolerance." I think this is important because it clarifies the contempt and dehumanization inherent in the Leftist point of view today -- we are NOT actual human beings to them, we are subhuman, and therefore no mutual co-existence is either possible or desirable.

This is something WAY too few of conservatives and republicans understand or internalize. Any effort to reach out and "come together" is hopeless, doomed. They want is silenced or dead.

85 Collectively, these documents show a show lenient treatment for evident criminal activity. Only four of the 14 employees found to have made an unauthorized disclosure were dismissed from the FBI," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. "And even though Andrew McCabe was fired and referred for a criminal investigation for his leak, no prosecution has taken place."

That is what scares me--their models predict only thirty, forty deaths max, they rationalize, and then the right laws will be passed locking in their majority forever.

But, they've badly miscalculated-- they don't have the data they think they do, they haven't near any of the variables needed, and they sure as fuck don't have the control they think: And the number they're going to get killed is off by 5 to 6 zeros minimum.

They enjoy the good life of a capitalist economy, secretly know it and just want to rule over it and do as they wish with the proceeds to buy votes and enrich themselves.


On the other hand the rabid base, typified by the Scrunt Squad, really do want that revolution and will be enraged when it doesn't happen. And they want conservatives locked-up as well, not just shut-up like, say Biden and Pelosi and Schumer would prefer. The Dems will be attacking each other 6 months after election instead conservatives.

Yes, I have my coffee and go to work. That's when I overhear my coworkers. There's one guy who blames his problems on the dominant heteronormative culture and takes every chance he gets to take potshots against the Catholic Church. Another guy (who's white) sees racism everywhere. There are more gender-fluid people than I can count, each looking for a relationship to fulfill their own unique needs and desires. About half of them are broke or drowning in debt and await more fixes from a government which yields to their every foolish whim.

Then I come home and have a beer and wonder whether it's some divine force or simple inertia that's keeping everything together, such as it is.

The way I see it, out country has an entire generation, maybe two, that won't ever be recovered. I've never personally heard a call for open rebellion or political violence, but I don't see where it matters. The damage is done, and it may take fifty years to repair it. Maybe a hundred.

156 All of this "white supremacy" talk is nothing but a gigantic media-generated lie, just like the myth that mankind is altering the climate.

It's nothing but blatant bullshit, designed to program the masses who have already been dumbed down so much that they trust the talking heads on TV more than their own perception and common sense.

I always try to remind everyone that America's Favorite Domestic Terrorist, Little Billy Ayers ("Guilty as hell and free as a bird!") was going to start his little revolution where he planned to kill over 125 million Americans through a fake race war. He was coordinating with a couple of foreign governments to help him in his plan. It doesn't look like he ever gave up on that and we're seeing his plan being played out today by the Progs and their mouthpieces in the MFM.

If we want to win this revolution, we need to be telling everyone we know to turn off their television and don't turn it on again, ever. Take control over what you see and hear and don't believe anything that's said on that device. That's just the first step, but it's very effective.

167 Just had an odd thought. How much has the increases in life-saving medical ability contributed to suppressing a hot civil war?

Not that long ago both Scalise and Rand Paul would quite likely have died as results if the attacks on them (Scalise from the wounds themselves and Paul from the pneumonia, and other secondary effects). Would a dead representative and/or senator have changed our current course of action?

Please note, I'm glad they're alive, just something in J.J.'s post made me realize that in the Roman republic or suchlike those two would probably be martyrs due to lack of medical care.

_________________

That whole "white privilege" crap was all based on an article written by a stupid white woman who didn't understand that the "privilege" she was describing (her own) was not based on her skin color, but on her wealth.

Wealth and status come with lots of privileges, and it doesn't have anything to do with skin color. Do you think Oprah or Michael Jackson or Kanye West or Samuel L. Jackson or the Obamas don't lead lives of privilege? We all know they do, just like all wealthy, upper-class blacks (and latinos and Asians, etc.)

The average white person has no "privilege" merely because of their skin color. If anything, it's a disadvantage. When some poor white schlub goes into a job interview at a company that wants more "diversity" in its workforce, is he/she "privileged" when they don't get the job because HR chose the less-qualified black or hispanic or muzzie applicant so they could boast about how "inclusive" the company is?

Or how about when the white parents' kid has to score 300 points higher (or more) on his/her SAT in order to get into the school they want, while the black or hispanic kid next door can have lower scores and crappier grades and still get in? Who has the "privilege" in that scenario? It's not whitey.

228 Why would the Left want a civil war when they're getting everything they want already? The slow squeeze works better. The hot rhetoric is designed to goose their goose-steppers and speed up the process, that's all. It also feels good. It gets everybody's rocks off. Besides, there's no blowback for it (all the cucks happily go along with it). The Left already owns the culture -- no threats to that dominion in sight. They'll get gun confiscation, universal healthcare, social credit ratings, open borders -- as soon as Trump is gone. And Trump will be gone at some point.

229 The Left was being hammered by two Narratives. We had GEOTUS's brilliant attack on Rep Cummings, & Rep. Tulsi "The Hot Hawaiian" Gabbard's take down of Sen Harris. Both Narratives knocked the Collusion Delusion/impeachment Narratives out. They also forced Dem urban failure/corruption and prosecutor abuse front & Center. Just think what this was doing (or could do) to the Dem's critical base (think African Americans). They had to be DESPERATE to CHANGE THE NARRATIVE. And just like that, not one but two mass casualty events and the change happens. What a coinkydink

Jeff at Protein Wisdom was writing ridiculously long essays on this 10, 15+ years ago.

They have their own language, and when you accept their language you've already let them win (think pro choice vs, pro life). You accept their paradigm when you use *their* language. Ths is why Trump was so dang radical: he refuses to use their terms.

They do this again and again. In fact, think it was a PW where a talking points guide on gun control was posted, showing that the Left is prepped for these events in advance, then just wait for a tragedy to respond in unison using slippery language/euphemisms.

threw away any chance he had of ever running for statewide office
again. It felt good, and it made his big New York and California

reality, that one move was the kiss of death to his political career,
forever.

This is really quite comical, and is a measure of the absolute desperation Nadler feels now. Simply put, he has a year of committee time to fill and he has nothing serious planned to fill it with. Kavanaugh? The House has no say in Supreme Court appointments, never did, never will. That's what chaps him so much. So he wants to look through 1 million pages of documents - so what? Unless there's a signed confession to a felony among them, there's not even a possibility of anything being in there that would matter. It's like us saying we're going to go through RBG's papers from when she was head of the ACLU, years ago, and look for "Partisan" positions. Of course they're there, and so fucking what? She's been confirmed, and that is that, and anybody who doesn't like it can lump it. Same goes for Kavanaugh.

It's not noblesse oblige, it's sloth, greed, envy, and pride conspiring to steal the clothing of virtue.

They are lazy, feckless, and self-hating and desire to both think of themselves as good people, and use that faux-moral platform to criticize those who actually do good.

Their motivation isn't truly to be good, but to be *better than you* and rub your nose in their alleged superiority.

This is why their "charity" (which often consists of compelling others to do charitable works on their behalf) does such a poor job of actually helping people. The result is not important, it's all about the force. The humiliation of being forced to do ineffective things is just a bonus.

Definitely not. When I finally sold my condo in Boston 6 years ago and moved out for good the 10x10 piece of asphalt that I bought years ago for a parking space would have bought a nice home in a small town in the midwest. I sold the condo in 6 days for full asking price, which was high, and for cash.

The city itself is thriving and supply and demand are still supply and demand. Boston has been run mostly by Democrats forever but there is a large streak of Yankee practicality that kept the worst elements of leftism mostly at bay.

Probably won't last forever as the Party is fundamentally changing but for now it works.

NBC News Contributor Claims Trump May Have Ordered Flags Flown At Half-Staff To Honor Adolf Hitler

Trump orders flags at half mast until August 8. That is until 8/8. "H" is the eighth letter of the alphabet so 8/8 = HH = Heil Hitler. Why, it's as plain as the nose on your face!

underlying evil that infects their core beliefs can ever be killed off)
or the hours before an imminent banzai charge?
---
If they make another civil war necessary, then we need to learn the lessons of our previous domestic wars. We corrupted our country with slavery as a concession to the Democrats to get their help with the British. That compromise wasn't worth it. We then let them back into the country after the 1860s because we were tired of fighting and wanted to get along (and the least legitimate cause of the conflict was DC's desire to retain territorial control of the areas they claimed). We cannot make that mistake again.

They (and their government) have always been the primary threat to the liberty of Americans. If they push us over the edge we must be rid of them for good. I don't know if that just means kicking out California, or putting them all on a new trail of tears to Mexico or any other place that will have them, but we must end the threat they pose to the exercise of our God-given rights.

NYC can quickly become Dinkins NYC in a NY fucking minute. De Blasio is fully down on that outcome. NYC may just be a very expensive place that doesn't need to exist.

311 We corrupted our country with slavery as a concession to the Democrats to get their help with the British. That compromise wasn't worth it.

That's a poor description of the compromise of 1787 - and I have to point it out because that's kind of a pet peeve of mine. The motivating factor behind the unity of the original 13 colonies, then states, was that if they didn't stay together, none of them would have the economic ability to maintain independence from England, as soon as a few fell, all would fall back into the British Empire. Without that compromise, there would never have a "United States", and we would simply have been a large southern district of Canada, administered by London. What we call the War of 1812 would simply have been the final battles of reconquest.

So yes, the compromise WAS worth it, when you understand what it gained.

I agree, but the violence was the next day, and the sincere people FOR the statue were all mixed in, and there were many more town people. Antifa didn't have a permit, why were they allowed to show up in battle gear? And the girl killed was by the nut that was trying to leave town and had been confronted by ? antifa guy, Prager guy kinda blurs that into the antifa versus supremacists conflict.

3. WHAT IF: Husband and wife get in argument, wife says to self "I'll show him" so she makes a report: "My husband is acting crazy and he's got guns(s), get him now before he kills me".
4. WHAT IF: I dislike my neighbor and want to "show him", so I report: "I was out walking the dog, and as I passed neighbor's house I saw him screaming at the TV with a gun in his hand, get him before he shoots someone".
5. NEW FORM OF "SWATTING"--call up and give a report and at 3 am a team in black without a warrant makes a no-knock door busting entry and kills anyone inside.
6. "CHILLS FREE SPEECH DEAD COLD": How dare anyone who owns guns say/write ANYTHING which is deemed "offensive" to ANYONE--next thing they know, they're on the floor, handcuffed, while "thought police" search their homes for guns!
