The Morning Report - 12/2/19

creojer.jpg

Good morning kids. December. Huh. Anyway, it may be the sprint towards the finish of 2019 but it's the start of a brand new week and we've got links galore, so here we go. First up, the next phase of the sham-peachment starts later this week with hearings now to be held in the House Judiciary Committee chaired by Jerry the Hutt Nadless. Once again, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone has responded to the bloated blathering blob of bile with a five-page letter declaring that the Executive Branch will not be participating in this complete mockery of the most basic tenets of the rule of law, the Constitution and common decency. Shorter Cipollone: LOLGF.

Doug Collins, the ranking GOP member on the committee had already slammed Nadless for the latter's shenanigans with impossible deadlines and other procedural bullshit intended to deprive the Republicans any reasonable ability to make their case in defense o the President. That said, they are at least able to call witnesses to these hearings and Collins has stated that witness number one is going to be Adam Schiff-for-Brains herself.

... "So, you want to bring him in before the committee, not just to present a report, but to take questions from Democrats and to be cross-examined, if you will, by the Republicans?" [Fox propagandist Chris] Wallace asked.

"He needs to be. He's put himself into that position," Collins responded. "If he chooses not to then I really question his veracity and what he's putting in his report. I question his, you know, the motives of why he's doing it."

"It's easy to hide behind a report. It's easy to hide behind a gavel and intelligence committees behind closed door hearings, but it's going to be one - another thing to actually get up and have to answer questions about what his staff knew, how he knew, what he did about the whistleblower report, his interactions that he's had with Ukraine, the other things that he's had over time in this process, and also why he has still not released documents to our committee and reports to our committee that we need to actually proceed in our committee of judiciary committee, which is the committee of impeachment," Collins continued.

"I have a question. Why are they hiding this stuff from us? If they think they have such a case, give us all the materials and don't let Jerry Nadler write a crazy letter that says on the 6th let us know who your witnesses are. We don't even have the information from the intel committee yet. This is why this is a problematic exercise and simply a made-for-TV event coming on Wednesday..."

Well, let them do their worst. As we are witnessing almost in real time, as the Democrat-Left-Media Complex continues to push this, it is having the exact opposite effect of that intended; support for Trump and more crucially against the Democrats is increasing, not just from the base, who the propagandists are now spouting the line of being "in a cult" but with so-called moderates, independents and even disaffected Democrats. This is the nail in the coffin, along with raving, raging Marxism, that perhaps at last will drive them from blind party loyalty.

speaking at a Washington, D.C.area Catholic church in January, praying as part
of a "multi faith" celebration.



The woman's a muslim, for crying out loud. If a Catholic Church invited her to speak/pray -- what did they expect?? This is why many churches do not and will not participate in so-called multi-faith events.

53 >>Pelosi is playing along because the Dem base is so far to the left they'd go third party if she didn't.

But she's pretty boxed in right now no matter what the media says. If she goes forward with impeachment she endangers a large number of her members from Trump districts. If she doesn't and opts for something like censure she will piss off her far left radicals.

And this is not going to result in Trump being removed and is likely to backfire hugely if it goes to the Senate where Trump will be able to call witnesses and present evidence.

I'm not sure how this works out as a win for her no matter what happens.

Sorry, should have noted that. It was my law professor brother quoting his faculty buddies, so entirely anecdotal and without real factual basis. The conversation was interesting as hell, since it was post-prandial (post-Thanksgiving dinner) and everyone was fat and generally happy, since my mother absolutely barred any mention of politics at dinner, and my brother allowed as how the election should take precedence now. When I asked about impeachment, he pshawed and said it was obviously an effort to stop the President's priorities but Democrats are so energized and united on the election, the House should let that process take over now.

Meanwhile, with the Democrats utterly having failed to knock down Trump's

Impeachment 2020 shifts stadiums to the GOP home field in the Senate.
The Republicans get to make the rules for a Senate trial, just as

questioning.

91 Been doing some reading on the alleged coup plots in the UK against Harold Wilson in the 60s-70s. It's interesting to compare and contrast it to the contemporary anti-Trump coup attempt.

In the former case, bankers, businessmen, military leaders and the intel community were allegedly plotting against the PM because his socialist excesses were wreaking havoc on the country.

When Obama was trying to take our country down a similar path, I often wondered if our own group of bankers, businessmen, military and intel spooks were making similar plots for similar reasons.

But instead, it turns out that group was in on it with Obama the whole time and plotted against Trump instead.

And my mother in law!

For Junior's first three years, Dolley worked nights so we didn't need to pay for day care, which meant that Junior stayed up until 1 every night.

When my MiL came to visit, it was with the understanding that she would keep him up to maintain his sleep schedule.

Dolley and I go out one evening and get back around 10 to find Junior asleep on top of my MiL, who was also asleep, in our living room with all the lights off.

"I didn't fall asleep," was the first thing out of her mouth.

Social Security, subsidizing everybody else," Buttigieg claimed.

That's such a load of crap. The money that illegals pay into SS (usually under false or stolen SS #'s) is dwarfed by the "tax credits" they get paid by the IRS (billions of dollars every year), the food stamps (also billions of dollars every year), the billions of dollars' worth of "free" medical care they get in our hospitals, not to mention the billions of dollars' worth of "free" schooling their kids get in our schools. Then there are also the billions of dollars we're pissing away every year providing housing, clothing, food, lawyers, translators, court hearings, etc., to the millions of illegals asserting phony "refugee" claims so they can stay in the U.S.

The idea that illegal aliens are somehow "subsidizing" the rest of us with the pittance that a few of them pay into SS is ludicrous.

189 Today is SCOTUS argument day for New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v City of New York. Let's see if John Roberts can further ameliorate our rights, rather than restore them.

It's been 10 years since SCOTUS has taken a Second Amendment case. In the intervening period lower courts have undercut the Second Amendment and the courts Heller decision in every way possible.

It's not just an embarrassment for the court this has taken so long, it's a dangerous precedent and a sign of their waning power.

Now with despots on the march in places like Virginia, it is more important than ever to get this right, and quickly take another case striking down the "bans".

Anytime I have the least bit of, not really sympathy, understanding maybe, of the situation she or others find themselves in I remember what they did to innocent people with real malice. People like Flynn who they knew was innocent and yet they set him up anyway because they didn't agree with his political perspective.

They all allowed themselves to become consumed by power and the belief that they knew better than us common folk. They may have become their careers with integrity and principle but they willingly became corrupt.

And then he collapses into jelly at a campaign event and can't go on with the race before he does have the majority.

Technically, at the convention, he has something like 40-50% of the delegates. He won't win on the first ballot.

The "Enlightenment" strove above all else to achieve a sense of a common shared reality that could be understood empirically. This was not simply an intellectual development, it was also a reaction to the carnage of hundreds of years of religious wars which had swept Europe.

The fundamental reason that it's worthwhile to try to live in a mutually agreed upon reality is that when disagreements arise, they can be addressed through discussion and other non-violent political means. When 2 groups of people live in completely alternate realities, differences can only be settled by one side killing the other side. Nothing less than that can resolve anything.

2) It can clarify the Second Amendment extends beyond the home and permits a person to carry for defense. Period. You can't ban people from carrying or have de facto bans based on someone's judgment

And then he collapses into jelly at a campaign event and can't go on with the race before he does have the majority.

So, the question becomes: How many buckets of blood will be spilt?

that the world exists how they believe it to be and not how it exists

The SCOTUS didn't have to take this case. NYC already repealed the law in question. Everyone on the left begged them to drop the case. So why are they taking it? To make a statement, clearly.

btw, the law in question, which has now been repealed, was in blatant defiance of the decision in Heller.

Even if they did drop it cold today, they'd still have an actual legacy of nothing but impeachment, and this thing isn't stopping today. It has, at least, a few more weeks.

Far too many conservatives continue to say how much they hate the fake news right before they start freaking out after reading the latest fake news bleating instead of looking for actual news.

Is anyone really surprised that CNN, the NYT and other media sources who have been aiding the coup plotters since day 1 and now employee a significant number of them are putting out spin that the Horowitz will be a nothing burger and this is all political because Orange Man Bad?

Instead, why not ask why did the DOJ ask that the Flynn proceedings be halted until Horowitz' report is produced because the information that Flynn's lawyers have requested are likely to be answered in the report? Why would the DOJ do that?

That's factual news. It's not spin from the people who lied to you for the last 3 years about Russia collusion.

I just don't see how he gets it done by losing IA, NH, and NV. I don't see how winning SC in that mix convinces the rest of the states that he's the frontrunner juggernaut that his national polls imply.

........

You haven't been listening.. I keep telling you guys, there is no winning or losing IA and NH.

Dem rules state you can only earn delegates if you have more than 15% of the vote. Joe might finish in 3rd place in those states and still walk away with almost one-third of the delegates.

The only losers are Harris, Klobuchar, etc. etc. They get zip, while Joe gets a portion of their votes.

Then he slides into South Carolina and starts winning the lion's share.

It's 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is a joke.

I'm no conspiracy theorist around that site. If there was an actual conspiracy to juice ratings, Dumbo wouldn't have gotten the 45% rating it has.

But that's definitely some sort of cultural collusion. "I have to like this movie!"

I remember reading a Captain Marvel review marked as positive, but the rating was 2/4. That's a 50%. That's positive? The reviewer determines whether it's positive or negative, so there must have been some kind of social pressure to juice the score.

Rosie Perez hated working with Lee and says he is disgusting.

Mrs Hades and I sojourned in the Midwest for our Thanksgiving holiday. My expectation was we were making that trip to say goodbye to my aging father who has been diagnosed with leukemia and was not responding well to the treatment. Upon our arrival however we found him to be in much better health, and in fact it appears as if we will be enjoying his presence for a bit longer now, which gave me something to be thankful for.


Also, for Thanksgiving my mortgage lender (Chase) gave me a new mortgage holder. A company called Nationstar Mortgage LLC, dba...Mr Cooper? WTAF kind of a name is that for a mortgage company? So I called...and yep, it's legit.

So how did your holiday go?

I haven't seen any evidence that Biden is going to lose the NV primary.

The Culinary Workers Union has a disproportionate effect on the outcome of the NV DEM primary, just as AA voters do the SC DEM primary.

The Culinary Workers are overwhelmingly Latino, & they are favorably disposed toward Biden, because of Obama-- again, much like AAs in SC.

There'd is also Harry Reid's NV DEM machine, & again I bet he supports Biden, because-- who else is there if you're Reid?
