The Morning Report - 10/7/19

whistonly.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a brand new week and the net effect of the entire whistleblower "revelation" last week not only failed to damage or ding President Trump but instead blew up in Schiff-for-Brains' and the Bidet family's faces. But fear not, gentle reader. The cheap ambulance-chasing shyster representing this mystery man/woman has assured us that there is another whistleblower he is representing who can corroborate the phony third-hand out-of-earshot hearsay of the President's phone conversation with Ukarine president Zelensky. Supposedly, this individual has first-hand knowledge of the call which in the real world makes not a bit off difference since the transcript was released and proved that nothing illegal was discussed and that a phone call between these two people was legal in and of itself. I guess it's an example of the ignoring of the first rule of holes and the definition of insanity.

Meanwhile, we have verifiable, authentic audio and e-mail evidence to show that the DNC and Ukraine colluded in 2016 to smear Trump and boost Hillary. Add to that the admitted-to blackmailing of that nation by then VP Hair-Sniffer to the tune of $1 billion in aid if a judge prosecuting his coke addict failure of a son didn't drop corruption charges as well as evidence that the latter held a $50,0000/month no-show job on the board of a Ukie gas company and clear evidence of similar pay-for-play action with the Chi-Coms. Plus, many of the players involved include or are directly linked to such people as John Kerry, Robert Mueller and even Mittelschmerz Romney. But pointing that out means you're a nut-job conspiracy theorist and if you dare bring it up, you'll be ripped a new one by such luminaries and independent journalists as Chuck Todd. Never mind the fact that his only experience as a journalist was as a campaign aid for Tom "Dung Heap" Harkin. Yup. Nothing to see there at all.

Well, get used to it, because for the next 13 months there is going to be a whistleblower a week on this or on some other "impeachable" offense that is guaranteed to take Trump down. William Jacobson over at Legal Insurrection warns us of the DC Deep State star chambers energized by this insane hearsay whistleblower rule. That said, I wonder if the Democrat-Left-Media Complex paid attention to that little item last week about Trump and the RNC raising millions of dollars in the first couple days after Schiff-for-Brains' extemporaneous monologue - that he had written perhaps a month in advance - in the well of the House. Or that a very clear majority of Americans are supporting the investigation of the Bidet family's Ukraine and China dealings.

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.

The three men that were killed at Robins AFB when they crashed into the entrance gate were Guatemalan. None had any id on them, but they have been identified now. One was working in the area as a roofer, nothing on the others yet.

In the last ten years, the city of Warner Robins has become infested with homeless and illegals. Before the rein of the dog eating son of a commie bitch you never saw that.

70 Different versions of the Brennan is a Muslim claim have a single thing in common: ex-FBI agent John Guandolo. Guandolo resigned from his position with the Bureau in December 2008 after he was caught engaging in a sexual relationship with a key confidential source in the midst of a corruption investigation of a Louisiana politician. Since then, he has created a burgeoning second career training law enforcement groups to identify potential covert Islamic threats to the United States.

I'm not some shadowy government insider, just a Moron, but I have direct knowledge. Simply put, I lived in his neighborhood. I watched Code Pink protest in front of his house. I watched armed agents patrol the neighborhood. We were friendly with his wife, a very lovely person.

He's moved now, about a year or so ago. But I can say that I'm very unconvinced that's he's a Muslim convert.

Ukraine wasn't always aligned with Russia and not everyone in Ukraine wants to be aligned with Ukraine.

Ukraine has a very complicated history that can't really be summarized in a couple paragraphs but it sits in a very strategic location on the Black Sea at the border between the East and the West. It has been fought over, overtly and covertly, forever but since the fall of the Soviet Union and the expansion of NATO it has really become intense.

It is a very broken state with warring ethnic and financial interests, a prime spot for corruption. For the immediate you need to understand what happened during the 2014 Maidan Revolution and then what the Obama administration and uniparty slugs like John McCain did not to mention the actions of guys like George Soros.

The apex of money and power and the and establishment Republicans are desperate to keep a lid on it.

89 What kind of "deal" can be made with jihadist Islam? None. There is no deal to be made. They don't do deals.

134 SCOTUS hearing oral arguments this week on some Title VII cases challenging the definition of "sex" (as in, employers shall not discriminate against employees on the basis of the employee's sex). Does "sex" mean "sexual orientation or preferences" and does "sex" mean "my preferred gender identity" so that say, a funeral home that requires its male employees to wear business suits can't legally fire a tranny guy who has now decided he's a woman from wearing skirts and dresses to work?

Could be interesting. If "sex" means somebody's "gender identity" then what's an employer to do about "fluid" employees who change their "gender identity" from one day to the next? And are employers now going to have to cater to the idiocy of making sure each employee gets addressed by his/her/its/xer/xis/ghe/er/whatever's "preferred pronouns" at work, or risk incurring hundreds of thousands in legal fees each time one of these idiots gets "offended" or "triggered" by somebody who doesn't recognize whatever "gender" they're pretending to be today?

There's a whole nasty can of wriggling worms just waiting to be unleashed here. But on the plus side, the oral arguments could be fun to listen to.

I've been leaning towards Warren outright winning the nomination in the primaries for a couple of months. Biden's fall has been exceedingly predictable and Bernie was always an afterthought when he became one of several candidates instead of the lone anti-Hillary candidate.

If it's not Warren, I have no idea how the primaries will play out. Not that I can't see any of the other candidates winning but that I can't really tell them apart enough to make some kind of decision. I'd need new information like Booker having some great moment that turns into donor cash and polling results. I find it hard to believe, though, that with the amount of time and number of chances these people have had that anyone is going to have that moment. They've all already had those moments and gone no where. They're all old news.

If it's going to come from someone outside the race, I think we're at a point where it would have to come at the convention. I don't think it's possible for anyone to gear up a campaign machine now with the amount of time between now and Iowa. It's four months, but that's not a huge amount of time to get talent in places like Iowa and New Hampshire that's not already being used.

145 The withdrawal in Turkey is especially problematic for the future. Building up partner forces is not easy, and this will make it more difficult. The Kurdish forces were central to defeating ISIS and they expended a lot of blood to help us do that. Some have said that Syria is a sovereign nation. True, but then why cede the territory you are holding to another nation who is violating that sovereignty?

A lot of people feel the Turks are taking this action under the guise of creating a border buffer zone- and that we have given the Kurds more than enough time to egress. But in the end this looks like a pretext for the Turks to go after the Kurds militarily- and history has taught us this is the Turks MO. This all could amount to nothing, but if the Turks go after the Kurds, this ends badly for everyone.


The real worry is the Turks will use this as a springboard to move into Iraqi Kurdistan. That's where things will get really sporty and the administration needs to take a stand before that happens. Overall, it's a little concerning the administration is purging itself of any opposing view and filling itself with sycophants...

166 Democrat Thought Leader Neera Tanden Praises "Moral Compunction" of Red China

*********

The word 'compunction' does not mean what she apparently thinks it does. A compunction is a feeling of anxiety or doubt regarding a course of action, sort of the opposite of 'certainty'. It is often used in the negative, in order to paint it as a positive attribute, e.g. "He had no compunction about prosecuting career criminals."

Perhaps she meant 'gumption'. As in: China shows moral gumption in opposing Trump." That would make more sense. Not that it would be true.

It is still interesting, though. Will Sarbanes be able to come home and say, "I'm fighting for you! I'm against impeachment!" Will his electorate believe him?

If you look at a map of Ukraine you can really break it down by geography. The ethnic Russian/Russian supporters are in eastern Ukraine along the Russian border. At western end of the country you have fiercely Ukrainian independence supporters including violent Nazi supporters.

The Obama administration went all in with trying to break Ukraine from an alliance with Russia and an integration into NATO. As you might image, Vlad was not very happy with this nor were Russian supporters in eastern Ukraine.

The 2014 revolution wasn't a revolution, it was a coup and we with the support of outside NGOs made it happen so we could rebuild the country with our supporters. Obama poured billions into Ukraine. It would be interesting to know what happened to all that money because it sure as hell didn't go into building a stronger government or society.

Posted by: bear with asymmetrical balls at October 07, 2019 08:44 AM (H5knJ)



NOT pull all American Forces back and let the Turks have their way.
We can and could have made it crystal clear to the Turks that they do
NOT have free rein with the Kurds. I know it is a fine edge, but
abandoning an Ally is not my cup of tea.

It is a tough task. Some will always say there shouuld be no Americans doing x.y. or z. But our troops have to be somewhere, that is something a lot of people don't seem to get. The Kurdish areas have historically been safe to allies. What is the risk to American troops really? They would be among friends. And they would hold off despots at every turn.

the Houston NBA team has historically made a point of reaching out to China. They are the guys that picked Yao Ming. Ming was a great player and likely a good guy but my point if they have always been China focused. Even their logo is Asian in many ways. It certainly is not Urban Cowboy. All of the Texas Teams have been at the forefront of expanding abroad and into Asia. That is great, but placating tyrants is not.

i am sick of Americans kissing up to tryants. Even South Park recently took on Hollyweird for their China submission. And those who think placating tyrants = no war are wrong. Sure it works in the long run but we can stand up to them. The president is doing it on the economic front.

The theory would be that there is some global grumbling among Democrats if even in Sarbanes district (where he won with 69% of the vote in 201 there is displeasure.

Sarbanes can afford to lose a point or two - or 15 - and still win.

There are more marginal districts though - NOT in MD - that could not survive a couple point swing.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a notice of violation to San Francisco on Wednesday, accusing the city of improperly discharging waste into the ocean and bay and following through on President Trump's recent pledge to cite San Francisco for water pollution.

Followed by this:

The U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management approved a resource management plan for the oil-rich Central California coastal region, which would issue 14 previously litigated leases in Monterey and San Benito counties, which were suspended amid a legal challenge by two conservation groups six years ago, and open up new acres for leasing. . .

According to the decision, oil and gas drilling can move forward on more than 700,000 acres of public land and mineral estate in Alameda, Contra Costa, Fresno, Merced, Monterey, San Benito, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Stanislaus Counties.

NOT pull all American Forces back and let the Turks have their way. We can and could have made it crystal clear to the Turks that they do NOT have free rein with the Kurds. I know it is a fine edge, but abandoning an Ally is not my cup of tea.

301 From JJs link on cancel culture:

As the Left sees it, those who feel threatened by cancel culture are irrational to feel that way.

But this is dishonest. They understand perfectly well why many people feel threatened and the Left is glad they feel that way. The assumption is that it is irrational for dissenters not to "evolve," that it is a very decent and easy and logical thing for them to do. They are supposed to "get it" and shut up. In other words, they think they are doing you a favor.

Cancel culture is not just random people airing their disapproval, but rather organized, deliberate, and targeted political harassment --- often by powerful people with large platforms directed often at powerless, random citizens. Anyone with a social media account, or for that matter, anyone with the misfortune to get involved in a public altercation captured in thirty seconds of viral, ambiguous video, is a potential victim.


If you have time, listen to the interview with the knitter who was targeted by the woke SJW knitters. She is amazing, the behavior of the activists is despicable, and it's interesting to hear the insights of the "Unsafe Spaces" interviewers (one is a former SJW who likens leaving that mindset to leaving a cult).

This is not going away.

There have been people who have jumped the fence, entered the WH, and IIRC, a young immigrant would-be jihadi was arrested for plotting to kill Trump maybe 4 mos ago. Heck, there was that guy who charged the stage at a 2016 rally. Thought I read that Trump has retained his personal security guy/bodyguard who has been with him for decades?

The next time we want someone on our side they might hesitate. This has nothing to do with war. Who is going to go to war with the USA for defending kurds?

Posted by: blaster at October 07, 2019 09:29 AM (ZfRYq)

337 The Kurds have been an important partner force , not just in the fight against ISIS, but in Iraq for a long time. Anyone who has been there or knows anything about our actions in the region, knows that. Providing the Turks access to the Syrian border region may not have broader implications if it is a)contained, b) doesn't result in armed conflict.

Turkish history doesn't bode well for either and if this works it's way across the border into Iraqi Kurdistan (which the Turks have said they want to enter under the same guise), this mess gets worse. the result is we a)lose credibility in the region, and as a result are unable to help mitigate any events and b)Become a de facto partner in another Turkish ethnic cleansing operation.

Some might say- who cares? But the fact is we are there and are a stabilizing force against broader conflicts and actions that will eventually involved us and our national security interests. This isn't us "fighting the wars of some other nation". It is us taking a legitimate stake where it involves our national interest (like getting rid if ISIS).

Indeed. If Trump is re-elected or even when he returns to private life, the dangers will continue. The rampant corruption in D.C. probably will not be dealt with within the system, and will have to be answered in the streets. There is little doubt the corrupt elements of the IC and FBI, which is a substantial chunk of it, have discussed assassination and have decided to do the political equivalent because they and their families might be in immediate danger.

Was there ever a time the MSM didn't hate the internet? They've been bitching about it for as long as I can remember. And that's not surprising. No entrenched industry likes new competitors.

356 Ah the First Monday in October. Our robed rulers are finally back at work.

357 Yeah no. NO ONE is talking about going to war with anyone. But nice try

=======
So using non-militay pressure? Then removing troops is not inconsistent with that. If you leave in place, what are we talking about 1500 troops, then all you have is a tripwire. A tripwire is only useful if it can be relied upon to trip something effective, but nowadays I'm opposed to commiting troops to anything other than an existential fight.

Why?

Democrats.

358 How come we're not demanding they change the "whistleblower" rule back to first hand knowledge only?

We need our troops Stateside. If the Globalists and Democrats (BIRM) can get them all committed to long-term duties overseas, that leaves the home front wide open to whatever they have in mind.

We have had troops there for a long time and it has not been "untenable"

If if place my unit in a meat grinder and no one has yet turned the crank then my situation can be called tenable?

361 "291 Dick's CEO saying the hackneyed phrase that he was OK with losing some business "if it saves one life."
************
I'm willing to bet that not one firearm sold by Dick's was ever used in a murder.

362 How long before a "whistle blower" files a complaint alleging that Nickelback copyright infringement is an impeachable offense?

363 You know, the Democrats are getting hoarse from crying "Wolf!" all the time that if Trump actually DOES something indictable, such as murdering someone on 5th Avenue, his voters will just call it another Democrat-induced hoax and ignore it. At this point, I probably would as well.

364 F Chuck was having a tough time with the Gout, poor fellow. Well that or he just can't believe people aren't excited over their new, well really recycled, coup attempt.

That being said- I'm going to get ahead of the game and proclaim my self a deplorable COLLABORATOR now, before F Chuck and pals get there. My Guess is Jonah the bearded Whale will be using the term by Convention time 2020.

365 This media comforts the corrupt, and makes certain justice is denied to those who have been abused.
