The Morning Report - 2/19/21 [J.J. Sefton]

honorebull.jpg

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and the tributes and reflections on the life and legacy of one of the finest, most consequential citizens the nation formerly known as the United States of America has ever produced, Rush Limbaugh, keep on coming as they no doubt will for at least the next few days if not longer. His producer, James "Bo Snerdley" Golden said it best, so grab a box of Kleenex as he talks about Rush. The torch has been passed and life does indeed go on, with so many battles yet to fight.

Between the absolute deadly fiasco in the wake of the winter storm hitting Texas, both in terms of idiotic "green" energy policy in a state that's swimming in oil and the indifference and incompetence of the current junta controlling the federal government to the plight of citizens it regards as at best political enemies and at worst sub-human, the decision of the junta to take us back to the dark ages by banning fossil fuels resulting in our now being a net energy importer once again, a foreign policy of said junta that is once again hell bent on allowing psychotic annihilationist Armageddon-worshipers to possess nuclear weapons, the official erasing of our national borders and the imminent granting of instant citizenship to tens of millions of foreign peasants, and the continued destruction of our economy along with the untold damage to our mental health due to national house arrest under the pretext of a pandemic that is marginally more lethal than seasonal flu, it's a miracle we haven't collapsed into a smoldering ruin. Backtracking to the Chinese Lung AIDS for a second, the only people that it presents any sort of real danger are the old and infirm, who were intentionally exposed to it because of the insane edicts of Angel of Death Cuomo and a half dozen or so other Democrat despots in cities and states across the nation. For the trolls who will no doubt shriek about the death toll, these frauds account for the lion's share. Bravo.

Most frightening of all is the ramping up of efforts to silence all voices of political opposition and remove any threat to the permanent control of the levers of power by the Democrat Party and its allies/confederates in the media as well as the corporate sphere. It's easy to mock Malig-Nancy Pelosi but this mobbed-up decrepit bag of botulinum is deadly serious.

Dinesh D'Souza did a podcast pointing out Nancy Pelosi's very peculiar behavior regarding events at the Capitol in the days leading up to January 6. In the five weeks since then, Pelosi has turned Washington, D.C. into an armed, walled city and is working with the White House to crack down on dissenting views -- meaning, any views that run counter to the Democrat party narrative. There's something weirdly un-American about what we're seeing now...

... D'Souza points out something we've all noticed, which is that, on January 6, many of the people peacefully walked and gawked through the Capitol after having been invited in -- and treated respectfully -- by the relatively small number of Capitol police officers on duty. If you've ever visited the Capitol in the past, you know that's not how it ordinarily works...

...In case you're wondering, this is how totalitarian dictatorships operate. Free speech is out; increasingly brutal suppression is in. And speaking of increasing brutality, there's the fact that the Democrats have used the events of January 7 to turn Washington, D.C., into a security fortress of the type any tyrant would love...

...One could say that Pelosi was Machiavellian enough to position matters in advance of January 6 to create a trap for Trump and his supporters. Equally, one could say she simply elevated a stupid, drab, depressing event into a crisis so that she could refrain from letting it go to waste. No matter the viewpoint, the fact remains that January 6 was the best thing that ever happened to a political party anxious to jettison the Constitution and achieve total control over America.

As we have reported over the past few days, Pelosi is now calling for some sort of 9/11 style "commission" to investigate what was a staged event with Antifa/BLM confederates dressed in MAGA gear to create a scene, which tragically resulted in the deaths of four individuals including Ashli Babbitt who was blown away by a DC cop for no apparent reason, and to be used as a pretext to quite literally purge Congress of any real political opposition, the military of anyone in their imagination that might take up arms and move against them, and beyond that, a swathe of prominent citizens and other influencers on our side. Sounds rather Stalinist, n'est ce pas?

Meanwhile, if you raise your voice in public, at work, school or even at home, you'll be swiftly stomped on by your teachers, your boss, the bank, your medical provider and even your own family members until you get your mind right. And by raising your voice to protest, it's not just about the so-called "insurrection" or the legitimacy of a stolen election. It's about protesting junk-tuckers in girls bathrooms, that white people are genetically racist untermensch, calling Chinese coronavirus Chinese and not believing it's a world-ending plague is racist, abortion is like a pedicure, eating meat and using oil is a sin against Gaia because global warming is causing snowstorms, Iran deserves nukes because the evil Jooz are evil, etc. etc.

When someone quipped "you will be made to care" they weren't kidding. Kind of brings me back to Rush Limbaugh. A few years back, I was working on a freelance writing assignment for one of the country's most prominent "progressive" institutions of higher learning, tasked with rewriting some of their website content. On their "About" page, I described them as being "on the cutting edge of societal evolution." I wonder if they ever caught on to that. Nowadays, if I did that, you'd read about my arrest in the paper when I'm charged with a federal hate crime.

Have a good weekend.

22 TGIF!

Pelosi may have played her part in the scheme, but no way she masterminded it. I have no doubt this was hatched by the same team that gamed out the post-election shenanigans, headed up by Norm Ornstein. He's the guy who has pulled off color receolutions in other countries. Darren Beattie at Revolver has bee all over this since late summer/early.

Seems interesting that Democrats fail to grasp the fact that President Trump was not convicted of anything during either of his Senate trials.

Can't wait till the concept of punishing someone despite not being convicted of anything carries over into the criminal community.

Minorities WILL be hardest hit.

25 Biden is Chernenko.

Remember him? He was the Premier of the USSR after Andropov. He was pretty much a husk of a man, just like Biden.

Except Chernenko was the legitamate leader. Biden is a double pretender. He pretends to be sentient and elected.

This will not end well for the puppet masters.

My heart has really been heavy. It's impossible to imagine a man like Rush, so important and so larger than life, a giant among men, to no longer be here. What a gaping whole he left. And so much more profoundly punctuated by the awful, diseased state we're left with in America today. I miss him terribly, and it will only get more acute in the coming days and months.

Someone here posted a livestream as the Capitol was being attacked and it was just like all the antifa footage we saw throughout the summer of 2020. Not sure if it was Sullivan's footage, but it was someone on the team streaming his buddies in hats/hardhats, goggles, neck gaitors breaking windows, etc. Might as well have been the Portland courthouse. Knew then that this was not Trump protesters leading the charge.

36 In a bizarre way, it is fascinating watching a viable, functional, and mostly ethical civilization being dismantled by corrupt thugs right before your very eyes!

Our "betters" are now free to openly hate Rush, a self-made man that performed a feat NONE of them could do, running a POPULAR radio show for decades.

Same way they can now openly go after Trump who actually accomplished real things and created a lot of tangible buildings and jobs (not vapid word salads).

Less than pond scum, the lot of them!

This is where you end up in a life without God. You end up scared of your own shadow, and all thoughts go into pretending that the number of your days is exclusively yours to decide. Then you imagine powers that don't exist, and insights that are simple enough for you to understand but don't model the world at all. Once you are convinced that you have the answers....

I don't think the MO guard is there, but Katrina was like this. After people lambasted Bush, he sent every body he could down there. The NG prepares for things like Katrina (at least in MO) and the entire regular army does not. My husband's conservative politics hardened amazingly after that month. People would ask him how bad it was, and he would just answer, "It's mismanaged."

42 Morning peeps. Another bitterly cold morning at about zero right now. We might actually see the sun for the first time in about 7 days.

Let's not forget that while the leftists in DC attempt to consolidate their rule they're out there backstabbing the governors of NY and CA for whatever reasons. Additionally, the Clinton and Obama factions (Olde Guard vs. Socialists) are ramping up the infighting for control of the country via *biden and the cockholster. In my opinion those two are not on the same team. There's going to be epic backstabbing between *biden's camp, namely DOCTOR Jill and the Harris camp run by the Ferret and Jug Ears.

I'm going to disagree with you right there. If anything, 2020 made the things around us more obvious.

That rot has always been there, strangely enough they were more competent in their destruction then than now. If anything, what you are seeing is the same corruption and contempt for society that has been always around, the difference is we were ruled by psychopaths now we are being tormented by profoundly incompetent sociopaths.

In the 60s they would flat out kill the president, ship off young men to die for no reason in Vietnam, and usher in nation changing social programs and people went along with that. Our struggles today surround the diminished ability to say stupid shit on Facebook and Twitter while letting perverts pretend they are girls - and we think it is the end of the world.

The only thing top Dems were upset about Jan, 6 is the low death count. They were hoping to instigate a huge riot with dozens of casualties. Instead they had to dredge up some medical emergencies to kick up the number (much like the two cops killed in a helicopter crash are included in the Charlottesville deaths)

A serious question. Why in Hell would any parent, who claims to love their child, after seeing what horrible and corrupt people these union thugs continue to show themselves to be, would want their offspring to be raised and trained under that sort of influence?

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." - Proverbs 22:6

Sending your spawn to be indoctrinated by them IS the problem and prima facie evidence of child abuse. Better to drop them off at a whorehouse, they might learn the value of work and human nature.

Don't forget today's fully weaponized federal government agencies, who target political opponents, both public officials and private citizens. Oh, only because they're R or conservative. That's an important point.

Don't forget the dismantling of our entire American culture and the active, committed goals of dehumanizing white people.

73 Stealing the West's Cultural Heritage
_________
Interesting, and partly right. But there is some cherry picking going on. The insistence that Allah is "unfettered", and the consequences in both morals and science have plenty of company in the West. And from people whom most would not suspect. William of Ockham, Calvin, Hobbes, Hume, even up to a point, Locke, all have strong strains of this in their ideas. And they are stronger today than earlier.

(I love putting Calvin and Hobbes together like that.)

I'd go with the explanation offered at the end, an event that could be made into a crisis not wasted.

Quite the contrary. Her talents, like the Turtle's, have always been toward managing politics among politicians.

That said, the Democrats certainly have, once again, seized an opportunity and are making the most of it. A skill sorely lacking on our side.

There have been numerous votes in PR for Statehood in the past and with one or two exceptions where people intentionally did not vote they always vote it down. They don't want the responsibility and cost that comes with being a State.

I don't know if I reported this here but earlier in the week I got a fairly long response (surely a form letter put together by his staffers to address similar emails) from RINO Rob Portman about his impeachment vote. Although he voted not to impeach Drumpf he continues to mischaracterize events of that day like he was picking his ass during DJT's defense presentations. There's no fixing RINOs. Good riddance next November.

He was, and he picked up a lot of fans by talking straight with the press and getting shit done during the Katrina response. When the press whores lobbed "gotcha" questions at him about how bad Bush 43 was, he told them that they were "stuck on stupid" and then proceeded to lay out the response and what they were doing.

We cruised through 2020 holding even from the year before, normally not a good thing to have no growth but in 2020 it was a huge victory. Some employees were furloughed for a short time but all were brought back by June.

His message was even strong enough to drag down-ticket Republicans along for the ride - even while that party was undermining him at every turn, their brand stinks on ice, multiple fake catastrophes were engineered against him, and the old man has the attention span and focus of a gnat. Yet - still - he won between five and ten points nationally.

Interesting, and usually a leading indicator of a recession. But given the disruption, that might not be true this time. Do you have any indications as to whether the shipping container mess is a contributing factor here like it is in many other places? I would kind of doubt it because the shipping container dislocation has come from China effectively cornering the market for them as their exports have grown dramatically over 2020 (funny that, eh?) and exporters from *other* countries have felt the pain, but I figured I'd ask since the buzz around containers has been quite loud.

As always, look to the meccas to see what will come next. Chicago has long been ultra-violent but you could be sure that the Magnificent Mile and surrounds would be safe and peaceful. It was always Chicago's high-end "green zone." Until people started getting assaulted and murdered there, too. The Magnificent Mile is still there and still high-falutin, but it is no longer a true green zone.

I don't know if the same is true of Rodeo Drive in LA, but I suspect it is. But regardless, watch what happens in the bellwethers and you'll see what's coming to your blue city. I live by this in Denver. Whatever CA, IL or NY are doing for the 'Rona, for example, CO will be doing within six weeks. You can set your watch by it.

How do you think I got banned? That's why the LGF comparison (I have no idea what it is today, if it even exists). Petty man.

The post that did it:

"Boswell is right about Johnson. The Samuel one, that is.

As for the other...his passing will be noted. Presumably at the bottom of a page."

There is some history between us, but still....the commenters savage them about not supporting Trump fully in a way I never have....in fact, I repeatedly defended Paul by pointing out this was a guy who had to stop posting for a while, back in the day, because the usual suspects were causing probs at his law firm. I'm not a troll there.

Johnson is a small, petty man, in my opinion, who made a post I thought exactly in character, I commented, he banned.That's why I'm beeatching here. I can assure you I sent him an email with the same points. Cheers.

Yeah. While I agree that sunsetting the tax cuts was a bad play, too many RINOs to avoid it. And there is no such thing as "permanent" because one Congress cannot bind a subsequent Congress. They can always repeal. If there weren't a sunset provision, that is precisely what they would do. But because there is, it provides cover for the Party by not making them repeal it. As was the plan all along.

From my rather dim military history understanding, generals and the other princeps of our military were reduced in rank to 'regular' or resigned after wars. There is an entire Pentagon of Generals and Admirals and whatever to serve our Forever Wars without peacetime reassignments.

288 Family Drama:

I was having a conversation with my older Trump hating liberal daughter who is getting married in Sept. We were discussing the bridal shower, and where we would have it, I said we could have it at the venue in my community, or at my house, but that if the mask crap was still around it would definitely be at my house. She said, well hopefully, everyone who wants it, will have had their vaccine by then so it won't be a problem. That's when I let her know that dipshit was floating the idea of masks until 2022, and she actually had the audacity to say, "so this is how it's going to be for the next four years, you hating the president and the administration" I almost passed out from the irony. I told her I don't hate the president I love him....The real one that is.... She was not amused, I also told her that I will not be lectured about hate by her. That's the last we've spoken. Good times...good times.

Paid at the pump and went inside to get coffee if any, and a couple Bimbo croissants, paid and left, remembered AAA batteries and went back. A guy in front of me was getting wine and cigarettes and wanted to pay with a check. Owner said no, the guy (big guy) said fcuk you. I was standing there armed and ready to defend the owner, a 'Middle-Easterner' from whom I had only bought ice from a few times over the past 20+ years. We live in weird times.

Yes, and this little factor falls on deaf ears and deliberate non-understanding. The clinical and laboratory studies are a mixed bag when it comes to masking to control viral spread. In the real world, though, it's meaningless. We don't need more studies. We ran the damn experiment and the data are in. Masking has either no effect or a modest negative effect on 'Rona test positivity rates. Where mandates exist, they are usually complied with by most. Yet 5-12 days after mask mandates go into effect, there is either no change in positivity rate or a modest increase in it.

Anyone citing a clinical test about masks should be laughed out of the public square. It's irrelevant.

When you compare and contrast that to ANTIFA and BLM, the numbers were in the hundreds and thousands. The difference was staggaring.

355 Our general introduced "combat football" as the game
of choice. Soccer field, 65 people per team all on the field at once.
Get the ball in the goal - no rules. We always had two medivac
helicopters and a dozen ambulances on hand. The ambulances weren't
allowed to go to the hospital until they were full (about 8 casualties).
Only severe injuries paused the game.

I don't even know what's expensive for a wedding anymore. If I met the love of my life and married her and wanted to throw a seriously great wedding, I couldn't see spending more than I would on a nice midsized car, and that's if I were completely besotted and out of my mind - and I know that was only a normal expensive wedding a decade ago. I don't understand how they cost so much.

She had lots of interesting takes on the Texas mess until she collapsed into blathering on about global warming causing the extreme weather Texas is having and will continue to have. She switched into a frothing weather nutter and the CNBC guy was not having it. He forced her to admit that Texas has had recorded snow and ice storms from the early 1900s to the 2011 big freeze. He was laughing at her when he signed off.
