The Morning Report - 1/3/20

Good morning kids. If ever there was a perfect way to start off a weekend, the beginning of a year and the race to the 2020 presidential election, this has got to be it. Unlike any other president in my lifetime with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan, when Donald Trump says he's going to do something, he does it. And YUUUUGE.

The President personally ordered an attack that vaporized the world's bloodiest terrorist Qassem Suleymani, responsible for the lives of scores of Americans and others. Also reportedly transformed into vapor was one Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, leader of an Iraqi paramilitary group behind the attempted storming of the US embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday. In response to that attack, the President hit them with a left jab by sending in reinforcements to defend American sovereign territory and lives, instead of leaving American citizens to die because saving their lives would mean exposing one's own criminality. The drone strike was the right uppercut to the Iranian regime and the truly revolting Democrat-Media Complex that actually wished American soldiers would die to politically hurt the President. See: Joy Reid, the walking knockwurst.

Even now, their absolutely pathetic attempts to claim that all Suleimani's elimination will do will enrage the Muslim street and plunge us into another war is risible in the extreme. The typical response goes something like "well of course Suleimani has American blood on his hands, but Trump is an evil idiot for doing this because, reasons!" Hitting my Ben Roethelisberger cap lock: It's funny because Barack Obama spent eight years depleting our stockpile of cruise missiles to take out every damn sand flea from Tunisia to Pakistan and the Media yawned and stumbled over each other to light his spliffs!

Meanwhile, back here on Planet Earth, real experts are calling the deaths of these two more important than even that of Osama Bin Laden. It might even trigger the long awaited downfall of the 40-year reign of terror in Iran, the wave of bloodshed unleashed on America and the world in that time and the looming threat of the nightmare of a nuclear-armed, Armageddon-hungry mullah-ocracry.

...Finally, the United States has drawn a firm hard line on their bad behavior.

This is exactly what we needed to do.

I believe the Iranian people will draw the obvious conclusion that this once powerful regime has feet of clay. Expect bigger anti-regime protests inside Iran in the coming weeks, and popular revolts against Iranian interference in Lebanon and Iraq as well.

To me, the biggest question remains: is President Trump ready for the revolution he has unleashed? With this single act, the United States has set in motion big historical forces for positive change. Are we prepared to help the forces of freedom against tyranny and oppression?

It's just telling to me that when you look at all the insane rhetoric about this hurled at President Trump, the more confident you are that he is doing exactly the right thing at the right time. It was the ramping up of sanctions that caused the Farsis to strike us in Baghdad, thinking the President would do something stupid, or even do nothing at all out of fear it would damage him politically in the run up to the election. Like everyone else who messes with him, his family and America, that is a grave miscalculation.

From Farsi Khameini to our own farce Chris Murphy, there are a lot of people with egg on their face this morning. Funny how not 48 hours ago, Murphy was claiming Trump didn't have the stones to stand up to Iran in the wake of "Trump's Benghazi." Now, Trump is a madman who's hell bent on blundering America into a war. Yeah, no.

Whatever the Iranians may or may not do next, the regime is clearly on the ropes despite the complete lack of any more coverage of the unrest within its borders. Lindsay Graham even hinted at possible further action that could really make them crumble like a soggy biryani:

"...This action by President Trump and our military was in direct response to Iranian aggression orchestrated by General Soleimani and his proxies," Graham continued. "If Iran continues to attack America and our allies, they should pay the heaviest of prices, which includes the destruction of their oil refineries."

Graham concluded, "To the Iranian government: If you want to stay in the oil business leave America and our allies alone and stop being the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world..."

For those unaware, Iran may be swimming on top of a sea of oil, but they have only one refinery in the entire country.

UPDATE: Commenter Gnu Breed informs me that there are 11 operational refineries in Iran. That said, taking them out would indeed be a near- if not fatal blow to the regime. The remainder of my comments remain.

They have to import virtually all an inordinate amount of their fuel and other refined petrochemicals, mostly the through the strategic and vulnerable Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Arabian or Persian Gulf, depending on your allegiances. It should also be noted that thanks to President Trump's neutering of Obama-era regulations against drilling and fracking, America is now a net exporter of oil for the first time in 70 years, and that has rendered useless "the oil weapon," with which the now mostly toothless OPEC used to boast and threaten the world.

At this point, Iran really is backed into a corner and while I dismiss the idiotic, incoherent ravings from the Left, a desperate Iran is bound to strike out in some fashion at us, or Israel or the Saudis across the Gulf. That said, with the elimination of Suleimani, so far, the President is reading the seams on the baseball perfectly and if he does continue to play his cards right, a liberated Iran is entirely possible before next November. I wonder how Ben Rhodes will console himself. If only we could bring Neda Agha-Soltan back from the dead to give Benny a good talking to.

They know that the death of a terrorist will be popular with most Americans.

I just love how this has shown (once again) how idiotic the "experts" and DC'ers are -- that their only real stance is "Whatever THAT guy does, I'm against it and it's the worst thing possible for America!"

We'll see whether this was a brilliant move or not by Trump, but one thing is crystal clear right now: the 'conventional wisdom' and national security experts who have driven our ME policy for the past few decades are idiots and not worth listening to. Trump pants them while killing another terror leader in the ME. That's a win-win for the U.S.

Morning. Post from previous thread. Worth a read.



"We're witnessing the death of the Iran regime and their death throes toward the US. I've been following Iran's involvement in Iraq closely for over a year because I have a significant financial investment there. Iraq is on the cusp of enacting their monetary reforms, which will add
value to their currency and allow their markets to open up
internationally. It will also provide the HCL law, which pays all Iraqi citizens an oil revenue stipend like Kuwaitis receive. The reforms have been hampered by the Iranian puppets in the Iraqi leadership and parliament, which has perpetuated the ongoing 30% unemployment rate while the corrupt politicians get rich. That's is the backdrop of the situation, and these are the three most important points to know right now: 1) The vast majority of Iraqis support the US strikes against Iranian militias, who have killed over 500 Iraqi protestors and wounded or kidnapped thousands more. Iraqis have been continuously protesting since October to purge their government of the Iranian puppets who facilitate the theft of their oil revenue, so the militias are trying to suppress them. That's also why Iraqi political leaders are lashing out at the US -- not because of Iraqi sovereignty, but to defend Iranian interests. The protests have so far resulted in new elections laws passing, a special election scheduled, and the resignation of the Iran-backed Prime Minister, Abdul Mahdi, who is in office temporarily until the special election. So when Mahdi criticizes Trump, know that the Iraqi people overwhelmingly oppose Mahdi's statements. 2) The theft of Iraqi oil revenue is the only lifeline Iran has under the sanctions, which their religious class has admitted is bankrupting them. Iranian citizens in Iran are still in revolt and burning down banks to support the US efforts to suffocate the regime. When the regime is no longer able to pay their military, the regime will fall. It's getting close. 3) The new election law passed by parliament will discontinue the appointment of Prime Minister candidates by the large Iran-backed political parties, and instead only accept candidates from regional districts (tribes, really), which means the candidates nominated will be anti-Iran and pro US. I predict the next PM will be Abdul-Ghani al-Asadi. All this adds up to REGIME CHANGE IN IRAN. And soon.

The world glut in oil everywhere is real, and not even the market is scared, save for a few day traders.

The truth is that this Salami guy is kind of their joint chief and their sec of state, all in one, getting popped. The underlings are reportedly scattering like headless chickens.

But killing of this Salami guy is the start of WWIII, and Trump is a reckless maniac.
___________________

Not to mention that bid Laden was just a pathetic old man, hiding in his bedroom and playing video games, when Obama finally got around to having him killed.

Diced Salami, on the other hand, was the active head of the iranian military and was training terrorists, plotting future terrorist attacks, and stirring up all kinds of bad shit all over the Middle East. Taking him out is major.

You dont simply extract forces from a region that clearly represents one of the greatest existential threats to our country. The goal is to keep our country safe. The short version is you need to do that forward deployed. By the way it has zero to do with oil. It's about security.

What the president is doing is to ensure the threats are addressed without dragging us into other peoples fights on a wholesale basis. You can't keep our country safe from these threats sitting on your ass at Bragg. That's the most foolish thing I've ever heard.

According to the terms of the Iran deal announced in Vienna on Tuesday, U.N. Security Council sanctions regarding nuclear-related issues will be lifted on a number of entities and individuals from Iranian banks to Lebanese assassins, like Anis Nacacche. The name that most sticks out is IRGC-Quds Force commander Qassem Suleimani. Administration officials counsel calm, and explain that Suleimani is still on the U.S. terror list and will remain on the terror list. But thats irrelevant. The reality is that Suleimani is the key to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

335 Well that is not true. If Iran starts fucking with oil shipments in the Gulf again, prices of crude will go up. Enough to do any real harm to us here, no. But prices will go up and probably effect the Stock market also. But that is the price of Freedom. And not sure what natural gas has to do with the delivery and price of Crude oil?

I'd be ok with charging the idiot Europeans more, but there's no supply reason to charge US customers more in that case. Of course, if Tillerson is representative of the kind of mind running oil companies all bets are off.

And natural gas is usually commingled with oil, so additional supplies of that do hurt OPEC. Also I inordinately enjoy that Israel is now a major supplier to Egypt, of all places. Brennan must be crying.

We have the technology that would enable us to avoid mass engagements and occupations. We could easily develop a military doctrine that allowed us to pick-off bad guys remotely if they got too troublesome. These are opposed by elites for many reasons; investment in the military-industrial complex, a misguided belief that the possibility of casualties restrains us from making war among them.

382 Judge Rules 11-Month-Old to be Taken Off Life Support Against Mom's Wishes; Family Speaks Out (but Sarah Palin was crazy for calling death panels death panels - jjs)

*********

I know this will get lost in the Iran chatter, but I do want to say that this is not the action of a "death panel". The article glosses over the medical situation and appeals to emotion. The harsh reality is that the child's condition is incurable and lethal. Her life is being sustained through extreme technological capability and at this point continued treatment is not life-saving, it is merely death-delaying, to the point of being cruel.

There are very few centers in the country that have capacity to treat this child's condition better than Cook Medical Center , they have been consulted and have declined to accept the baby in transfer or offered any life-saving options for the simple reason that there AREN'T any.

Due process occurred in the legal system in what comes down to a conflict resolution between a medical team who couldn't (in good conscience) continue futile treatment and a mother who grieves for her child and can't let go. The mother is quoted as saying that she doesn't believe in hopelessness. Fine. But there is a difference between futile and hopeless.



We should save the death panel rhetoric for actual government policy decisions that block treatment strictly on a cost-basis. That is NOT the case in this instance. YMMV.

Cali has gone nuts. again. They have restricted personal water usage. If you do a load of laundry and take a shower the same day, you will be fined $1000.


https://tinyurl.com/seujzyw

Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a law which just went into effect that limits personal water usage. People can even be hit with massive fines if they exceed their limit by doing laundry and taking a shower on the same day.

This was recently discussed by reporters on KTLA News and the reporters seemed shocked to learn the details.

A video of the show, titled KTLA 5 Anchors News Morning Get Redpill, shows complaints discussing the issue at hand, particularly regarding 55 liters of water per day in California.

I'm not sure how I feel about it, anchor Jessica Holmes told her co-workers. You won't be allowed to shower and do a laundry load on the same day.

While that may sound crazy, what California Attorney Richard Lee unravels is hypothetical figures.

"Doing a laundry load requires about 40 to 50 liters of water. Showering for about eight minutes uses about 17 liters of water. Well, there is a limit to daily water use, 55 gallons per day. So that means if you are showering and doing a laundry load, you can't do both without breaking the law."

How they will implement the water budget has not been determined, but they will be subject to monthly reporting requirements and will be fined $ 1000 a day when completed. If they exceed the budget in a dry year, the fine is $ 10,000 each day they spend.

But Tom, when you look at the world through such a simple lens - it doesn't leave much room for quibbling or dilly-dallying. It might even call for something like "put up or shut up".

Due process occurred in the legal system in what comes down to a conflict resolution between a medical team who couldn't (in good conscience) continue futile treatment and a mother who grieves for her child and can't let go. The mother is quoted as saying that she doesn't believe in hopelessness. Fine. But there is a difference between futile and hopeless.

We should save the death panel rhetoric for actual government policy decisions that block treatment strictly on a cost-basis. That is NOT the case in this instance. YMMV.
Posted by: Muldoon at January 03, 2020 09:03 AM (m45I2)

Yes, agreed. The emotionalism of this case has overshadowed the other elements. Another factor, and it sounds heartless to bring money into this, and yet it shouldn't be ignored - this is not a case of private insurance or private funding. This is a welfare case and the family is demanding that WE spend millions of dollars for nothing on an absolutely hopeless case.

His counterargument was that no one on the right would ever actually be president. Such a complete lack of forethought.

I could look him up to see what he's saying about this, but it's not worth it. I muted him when he compared those who opposed minimum wage laws to Nazis.

Agree 100%.

Look - I want our asses out of the middle east too. But if we've got embassies there, they've got to be defended. And when a shit-show like what just went down goes down, somebody has to pay, or before you know it they'll be taking hostages and bombing discos again.

We screw up whenever we try to make the middle east better, because the natives don't want it better. However, zapping a few muslim fundamentalist officers is never - I repeat never - a bad play.

Now - if anybody wants to talk about closing down the embassies in the future - I'm all ears. Because, frankly, the only message I'm interested in sending the goat-fuckers is the kind Trump just sent. But that's a discussion about the future. The present is that they did an organized over-run of our embassy, and they paid the price.

In my mind, all's well that ends well.

Earlier he noted that Obama liked hardliners in Iran, wanted Soleimani to lead the way, make Iran the premier force for the region ... which I guess was obvious from his pallets of cash, but I kinda thought that was more bribe for getting his (bad) "deal".


But no, it seems Obama/Kerry and their Dem friends were allying with Iran hardliners ... which is against Israel/Saudis/etc ... our current allies. I'm still not clear how they squared that with Hillary/Putin friendship ring reset ... but Merkel/Hillary/Putin/Iran seemed to be together on oil deals that screwed Ukraine. so they had to cover tracks with Trump/Russia insanity.


Trump took down a terror leader, who Dems were establishing as leader for the region ... even after Trump was elected and in office.

Alyssa Milano is a little different in that she is connected to scummy Hollywood, so her activism smells a bit like her way of pointing people elsewhere. Milano was (still is?) partners with Weinstein's wife in a business venture, and her husband is an agent at CAA, the agency that supplied actresses to Weinstein. She's also close friends with @Jack (he's the godfather of one of her kids) so she will never, ever be kicked off twitter.

565 war is not the answer
-

They only embrace that because having to move the dial to "war" means they're complete failures and they, personally, have let it reach that point.

566 But Muldoon - shouldn't that decision lie with the parents?
Posted by: grammie winger


*********

In a complex case like this, there is a partnership that is entered into between the patient, the parents, the extended family, the decision-making physicians, and ancillary personnel (consultants, nursing staff,etc. etc.). To navigate challenging decision-making (weighing treatment options, allocating resources, etc.) requires ongoing and open communication. Certainly the parents are given decision-making authority but the medical expertise of the team and the moral conscience of the medical staff cannot be ignored, else they become slaves rather than voluntary participants. And of course, as Tom Servo points out above, the financial costs cannot be ignored just because the parents have a primary decision-making role.

568 286,

It is rather silly to blame the victim, in this case, the U.S. from retaliating against Iranians violating a key tenet of international law that embassies are considered sacrosanct from attack. Period. Full stop. For centuries among nations including even the notorious Genghis Khan. They are not legitimate targets under international law.

I dislike the continuing "wars" in the Middle East as much as anyone but it is a fact that embassies are key to managing diplomacy among countries and always have been. They also serve to help US Citizens in that country. It is a necessary and required constitutional function of government. Thus, any attack on an embassy and ambassadors should be punished as an attack on international law and a nation's soil (as that is the status under the law.)

The idea of simply closing all our embassies because foreign nasties might attack them and draw us into war is no less than Chamberlain's unilateral surrender in Munich. The guys involved in the planning and execution of the embassy attack punched their own ticket to hell and rightfully deserve the desired application of proportionate military force. And this was done.

There is a particular type of fear of some that expresses itself as "too proud to fight" under any conditions. It is a pernicious doctrine that dresses up cowardice as virtue and it is often based on distortions of the bible or even tenets of cosmopolitan libertarianism to bask self indulgent virtue seeking. Doctrinaire libertarians are just as utopian as their Marxist cousins in that they have an unrealistic view of human nature. Trite admonitions such as all government is force and coercion ignores the necessary fact that not all regimes are alike in moral virtue and that to maintain any sort of order at home or abroad requires force and coercion to maintain laws. And that means killing if necessary for self defense.

It is akin to the same sort of outrage by some at the recent church shooting where armed citizens stopped the massacre as if the church members were unfairly treating the perpetrator with their resistance. How dare they shoot back!! Don't you know that only breeds more violence? And other such rot is expressed about how no one should take the law into their own hands etc.

By their embassy attacks alone, Iranians and their Iraqi/Hezbollah proxies threatened the lives and well being of U.S. Citizens on US soil. They sowed the wind and reaped the whirlwind.

Someone has a sign up that says "war is not the answer"
I always think, it depends on the question
Posted by: Bruce at January 03, 2020 09:27 AM (vd8XM)


I'd knock on the door. "Hey, nice sign. Funny, though, I don't remember seeing it up when Chocolate Jesus was bombing the fuck out of the middle east and drone striking anything that moved. Are you a hypocrite or just genuinely stupid?"

574 The whole backstory on the hit would make a terrific action novel or film. That drone pilot, sitting in a closed room in Oklahoma or somewhere, had a huge backup network.

And that network had command and control.

How many assets does one need to have to be able to target that particular vehicle at that particular time?

And how stealthy are those assets? How deep are they? What dangers do they face?

576 A fun point to make about Iran and its fuel: Tehran has been plagued by bad smells for awhile. It turns out the Iranians have been forced to use low grade fuel.

577 Now that Soleimani is gone, I would imagine all the local terrorist groups will start fighting against each other for control of the whole enchilada. They will do our killing for us!
