The Morning Report - 6/10/21

stifleedith.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday and everyone is freaking out about a photo of Jill "Shill" Biden sitting at the president's desk on Air Force One that's captioned "'Prepping for the G7." Suddenly everyone's going on about a name that hasn't been in the news for over a hundred years: Edith Wilson. Seriously, is this really a story? First of all, does anyone really think that Joe Biden, a man who in the prime of his life had the intellectual agility of a wilted bracken, is really running things? We knew this going back even into the latter days of the Obama reign of error. Second, Jill Biden is not pulling the strings in the figurative, big picture sense, despite pulling Joey around by the hand in the literal one. What is confirmed, thanks to her absolutely disastrous trip to Guatemala and Mexico is that Veep Throat Harris is not only completely out of her league, inept and inarticulate to a degree that almost rivals that of being demented herself, but that she, too, is not the power behind the junta. That ultimate power resides in a large brick estate just outside D.C. - - in Kalorama to be precise.

The truly horrifying thing is that the image that all of this projects to the world is that the lights might be on but no one's home. The Chi-Coms, Russians, Iranians and every other bad actor are itching to make a move knowing full well that they will suffer zero consequences. And that can lead to catastrophe if the junta in charge of the former United States, in merely trying to prop up the image that Biden (anyone!) is in charge actually does react to some sort of military provocation from any or all of the aforementioned, and suddenly we've blundered and miscalculated our way into getting our hair mussed, but good.

No, Shill Biden standing in for the dummy is not news. But the consequences of this are just stomach-turning this early in the morning. Meh, what am I worried about? The US military as it is now led and being trained - or more accurately being un-trained - is looking more and more like a paper tiger. That is, to America's real enemies. To the political enemies of the Kaloramans, well, that's something else entirely:

Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Rhodes, commander of the 1-8 Infantry -- "Fighting Eagles", has a message for all serving in the military: if you're white, you're the problem...

...He also reportedly added that only .01 percent of racist accusations are false, and that he would always believe someone coming forward about an uncomfortable situation.

The story began circulating on social media, with one Instagram post catching some important attention.

"Looks like Fort Carson got themselves a real gem of an unbiased commander," the post reads. "I hope you're not white or ever accused of anything while you're in his command. You're already guilty and you didn't even know it!"...

...The post caught the eye of the current Sergeant Major of the Army, Michael A. Grinston. "If it's true he said that 'if you're a white male you're part of the problem' then he's creating division within his formation, and it's the exact opposite of what the Army has been trying to do with inclusion efforts," an active duty Army officer told Human Events."

With all due respect, the Sergeant Major is either incredibly brave or incredibly clueless. Does he not know that the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin issued a stand down order in the wake of the January 6th phony Reichstag Weenie Roast to weed out all "racists," "insurrectionists" and "white supremacists?" That means anyone in uniform who dares merely to have their own opinions not only about the validity of the 2020 election but about transgenderism, climate change, or merely having a fealty to the US Constitution. Does he not know that Crackpot Race Theory - teaching that America as founded is evil and illegitimate and white people in particular are genetically hard-wired to oppress non whites - is being taught at WEST POINT for fuck's sake!:

In his letter to West Point Superintendent Lt. General Darryl Williams, obtained by Fox News Wednesday, Rep. [Mike] Waltz inquired as to whether the military academy will continue to include critical race theory in its curriculum, and warned of the dangers the teachings pose to the future of the nation.

The Florida representative stated that such instruction puts the nation "on incredibly perilous ground if any future leaders of our military are taught that the civilian institutions and structures with ultimate authority over them . . . are systemically oppressive and that they therefore have a duty to oppose them."

"The underlying piece of critical race theory is that civilian institutions in this country are inherently misogynist, racist and colonialist, and therefore, it is our duty to resist them -- that is fine for activists -- but one of these cadets is going to be the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, and being taught that the Constitution is critically flawed?" Waltz said during an interview with Fox News on Wednesday. "That, to me, is terrifying and destructive."

Remember that piece of shit cadet Spenser Rapone who upon graduating West Point showed the inside of his cap on which he scrawled "Communism Will Win." That was four years ago, before this Ebonic Mein Kampf became part of the core curriculum. And you can bet your ass that Rapone is not an outlier. Where there's one, there's another. Shit, the fact that John Brennan a Gus Hall-voting avowed Marxist-Leninist became the head of the Central Intelligence Agency still boggles the mind (meh, FDR had Harry Hopkins and Henry Wallace so what the hell do I know?).

This is not a joke. Despite the laughable junk-tucking, high heels and pregnancy G-suits and identifying climate change as our #1 existential threat (now #2 behind whitey), military recruits are still trained to excel in doing one thing: kill the enemy. The problem is "the enemy" is now a sizable chunk if not the actual majority of the citizenry. Our society is already being eaten alive from within but this Crackpot Race Theory madness is cancer on top of cancer:

Critical Race Theory, then, is not some new "higher nonsense" of the sort our universities cook up. It's the spawn of Marxism and its offshoot Cultural Marxism. It has used ideas like "hermeneutics of suspicion," "false consciousness," and "repressive tolerance" to foment racialist division and conflict that they can leverage for more political, social, and cultural power. This has been the modus operandi of Marxism from its beginning, especially in Marxism's "late phase" when the revolution will not be waged by the industrial proletariat, but by the privileged, affluent tech-oligarchs, corporate boards, media pundits, university faculty and administrators, politicians, think-tank habitues, and federal agencies, all of whom have lost their nerve in the face of a historically, intellectually, and morally incoherent and destructive movement that has littered history with mountains of corpses.

And the old enemy of freedom will win, unless, as Winston Churchill said to Parliament after the Munich debacle, "By a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we rise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time."

And we're probably not going to be voting our way to "rise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time." Untuck the junk and gird your loins.

No. Government has neither responsibilities nor obligations to the citizenry. You are required to obey their diktats. If you don't like what they do, you may remove them via the ballot box (stop laughing).

That will be the eventual ruling.

29 One interpretation od facts known so far:


prevented by US law from experimenting in North Carolina, Fauci outsourced his private bioweapons program to a PLA outpost in Wuhan. The lab there is a known security risk, more akin to a low level "dental office" than a Level-IV facility, but Fauci either did not care or that fact made the experiments even more thrilling. Who knows when one of his Frankenstein creations will get loose?!! The answer turned out to be the fall and winter of 2019.

++++
I actually doubt this. Not that the enemy has become a slice of the domestic population, but how big it is. There's a reason that revolution is high-risk, and a reason why the communists chose the Long March and Critical Theory approaches to achieving one here.

That reason is relative strength, and the effects that has on the population. By my wild-ass estimation, they have nothing like a majority to worry about. I reckon that 10%-15% of people are brave and evil. Another 10%-15% are brave and good. The balance - that vast 70%-80% in the middle - will follow the strong horse.

The communists are the strong horse. When the purges and murder begin in earnest and the state exterminates the undesirables, they won't have to kill off more than 5% at the absolute outside. That's just 17.5 million people as an outer maximum. Super easy. Barely an inconvenience. More importantly, they don't have to sacrifice their hardest 5% in that war and can kill off less valuable team members in the war.

Yes. This has been obvious for a long time to anyone paying attention and who knows a bit of history. Sadly, few pay attention and fewer still know any history.

Critical Race Theory as a Critical Theory offshoot is rooted in Maoism. A lot of Critical Theory uses Marxist underpinnings, but CRT is all Mao, all the time.

38 "I am concerned by the DOD's intent to monitor service members' social media to identify extremism," the ex-Marine said. "Multiple groups expressed concern about whether and how DOD will balance First Amendment rights with efforts to combat extremism."

What is ironic, to say the least, is that it seems the DOD and all branches of the military and slowly (or not so slowly anymore) being overrun within by Marxist extremists and flat out Communists. That's not extremism. John Smith from Arkansas who supports Trump and flies the American flag is.

We have very, very serious problems building in this country. I'm glad some congressmen are seeing it, but a letter here and a letter there is not going to stop these madmen. They have overtaken all of this country's institutions. Their leader ranks are swelling. And they are targeting us in every way imaginable. We need a heck of a lot more than a few letters to stop them. Is it too late? I don't have high hopes.

"Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Republican party?"

"One extremist is one too many," Bishop Garrison told a Center for American Progress seminar.

Garrison, the man tasked by the Biden administration with fighting "extremism" in the military, had reversed Blackstone's ratio, "It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer." It was better to wreck the careers of a million soldiers to find one extremist.

Someone is home, but no one knows who. There is some degree of benefit to that. If you're Russia, you'll behave differently if Obama is charge than you would if there is a real man like Valerie Jarrett in charge. That is probably an extremely tiny upshot if it is an upshot at all.

It's the European Union problem. When the EU started becoming a real state instead of a trade and customs union, a common problem was framed as, "If there's a war or other disaster, who in Europe do I call? Do I call the heads of state of the countries? Do I call the EU President? Do I call the head of the European Commission? Who is in charge and where does the buck stop?"

They never adequately answered that question. We now face the same problem. We have a nameless, faceless politburo in charge. We can speculate about who's in it,but we don't actually know - or know who has the most power.

64 Residents could also use legal action as a mechanism to protect public safety in other cities where leaders have cut the police budgets or otherwise undermined public safety."

I don't think that it is accurate to say that cutting police budgets always equals decreasing crime fighting.

There are many cost savings that can be achieved that could translate into a budget cut. Also, one can play games with allocations so that funding for cameras, 911 equipment, ShotSpotter, communications upgrades can be in a separate budget.

Does the police require all of that 1033 gear (military surplus, tanks, crew served weapons, etc.)? Do so many members need extensive home invasion and crowd calming training (when it is clear that little of that training ever makes it to the streets).

Most of the problems with law enforcement happen before and after the uniforms step in.

Which is saying something, given Baseball's storied and lengthy history. They've had some real stinkers, as have other leagues. I thought it might be impossible for anyone to pull ahead of Goodell given his commanding lead, but Manfred has closed the gap.

What as asshole. I *love* baseball. I happily spent the $120 a year to get MLB's extremely good streaming service so I could have baseball up for months on end. I love the game. I won't give them one thin dime until this shit stops and they apologize. I'll watch Oriental ball. They know how to play, too, and since I know how the game works I don't care that I don't understand the words and can't read the language.

67 Joe Biden's first overseas trip as US President got off to an unforgettable start as he made a major blunder in a speech delivered to military personnel at RAF Mildenhall.

Embarrassingly, Mr Biden managed to turn the RAF into the RFA, when referencing the UK's military air force.

The 78-year-old said: "These partnerships have been hardened in the fire of war.

"Generations of Americans and service members fought them.

"Like the original Bloody Hundredth, and those RFA pilots."

It came after the First Lady joked that her husband had to concentrate. "Joe, pay attention," Jill Biden said.

China has shared the wealth internally a bit. They've had to, since slaves make bad producers and will produce a lot more if they can pretend that they're not slaves (e.g., if you pay them a little bit). But if you want to do really well, you need to be a party member and be in control of a state-owned or state-connected industry. If you're in that tiny club, I reckon that life is good indeed. China also has a small entrepreneurial class that does quite well, and a lot of those guys (not exclusively - there's also a lot of state action) are the ones buying up real estate in the US and Canada so they have somewhere to flee at any price.

Because everyone and no one is in charge. You may have noticed recently that much of what is going on is a hive mentality. its also very easy to break things while it is difficult and expensive to build / maintain things. Currently we are in the plunder and destroy mode, which any fool can do without guidance from above.

There is also a complete lack of accountability, so when bad things happen, there is no practical consequence as the Enemedia is fully prepared to ignore, obfuscate and cancel/doxx those who do pay attention.

So, aside from who they have sex with or how they're really a girl even though they were born as guy what is a LGBT theme and how does that differ from themes about humanity in general? You know life, death, hope, struggles,-the kinds of things everybody goes through as a human being irrespective of whether they're gay or straight. So poetry about nature is not allowed unless you mention your sexual orientation?. Somehow Walt Whitman wrote about life without noting his sexual preference.

And what do you know, Kat Timpf of National Review goes along with the insidious premise that we should follow everyone else's perception of reality (in this case, the transgender), but to follow your own perception is discriminatory and evil.

This is just another of those Marxist "false consciousness" ideas that everyone's perception of reality is true - as long as it attacks the Christian idea of being created in the image of God.

And of course the concept of "respect" is rapidly boiling down to, "accept every one of my premises and put yourself below me." There are few two-word phrases as insidious as "my truth."

Posted by: Ian S. at June 10, 2021 07:21 AM (6XLoz)

CRT has two mothers. It is an offshoot of Critical Theory, which was developed in Frankfurt (the so-called "Frankfurt School" invented it), courtesy of some inputs from the French Postmodernists. The French actually bear more responsibility than the Germans or the Americans for this, since their PoMo philosophy is the root core of it (CT doesn't work without PoMo intellectual underpinnings).

But when it came here to our universities, it hybridized more completely with social constructionism (also a PoMo subsidiary) and our traditional Marxists running the normal communist overthrow playbook (pick a conflict, drive a wedge, cast an enemy) were already working with race issues for their ends. It was a perfect milieu in which to breed Critical Race Theory.

Then it took over the world. If Harvard weren't involved, someone else would have been.

206 144 Renacci supporters tell me he is not a NeverTrumper, and got slaughtered in the Restraining Order election (shamelessly stolen from Captain Hate) because he was pushed in very late, when Josh Mandel pulled out to get divorced, and he had very little money. Supposedly, this time, it will be different and they think he can win.
Posted by: Huck Follywood at June 10, 2021 07:24 AM (Zny85)

He's not a NeverTrumper. But he was useless after the primary. Getting in late to the primary game doesn't excuse silence in the general. And I do mean silence. His running for governor though just increases the number of challengers that will split the vote and let the tyrannical gnome win.

I would say that it didn't begin with Harry Potter, but with the 2006 book, "the Secret." The author pompously believes that she holds the answer to the Universe's secrets: the power of magical thinking.

Where the key to solving everything is in thinking the right words, and that anything resembling negative thoughts is physically toxic and should be removed with extreme prejudice. It is the mother-lode of self-delusion, and why direct descendants of this mythology are such snowflakes. They can't have any negative thoughts (no matter how separated the thoughts are from actual reality) or the disconnect will literally kill them.

There is another piece of how the Left succeeded, and that piece is closed off to us.

They were able to exploit a very powerful and fundamental aspect of American society to do what they did. They exploited tolerance. America is - and essentially always been - extremely tolerant. They came in with nasty, awful, vicious, destructive and lethal ideas but they framed it in a context of tolerance. This is one of the reasons they've been so hung up on the race and sex and sexuality cudgels. Americans have (or had) an inborn tolerance we cultivated for generations in the name of liberty. They exploited that tolerance to subvert and take over control of institutions.

That won't work again, because they - unlike us - are *not* tolerant in the slightest.

That is true, but only temporarily. Eventually, a big decision has to be made. The long march and its consequences have been ad-hoc and achieved by common agreement on end goal by the marchers, but without an actual conspiracy. The politburo is currently making major decisions, but that is extremely unstable if the buck doesn't ultimately stop with someone. When those systems get tested and can't respond, you end up with major disaster (usually war). We're headed for that because it appears that no one is in charge. If that is actually true, then it's only a matter of time until a serious accident happens.
This was also probably true under Trump as well. He clearly wasn't in charge of a whole lot of things.

The audiences intermingle. What's unique about the Millennial generation is that it's the first one raised in the Age of the Internet, and with it, mass-fandom websites. So the adults who read the Script create these TV programs that say how wonderful progressive utopia is, then the teens get swept by them and join these fandom websites which magnify and amplify the message even further.

Not to mention social media and search engines that cater specifically to their exact desires, so that they can be "experts" in their chosen field by deluging themselves in articles that tell the same message day after day.

When you're trying to stand out among 7 billion people, you'd do anything to give yourself that slight little edge. And social media and search engines were the catalyst that set the whole thing off.

I think Jill is a bimbo just having some fun and will not be deeply engrossed in WH intrigue. Then again I also don't expect Joe to serve out his entire term (predicting he steps down in early '23)

But that's all she has. Her private meetings with the Guatemalan and Mexican Presidents and lower government officials must have been shattering for her.

I'd laugh if this did not matter so much to the fortunes of the USA.

338 When those systems get tested and can't respond, you end up with major disaster (usually war).

I truly believe China has already won that war. Proof is that they are now implementing a Western version of Chairman Mao's Cultural Revolution.

That is why that clever side-by-side of China, Russia and former US military recruitment ads was humorous but nothing to worry about. I don't see anything kinetic happening. That lesson was learned back in the 30s and 40s.

China has a deep tradition and culture adoration for subversion and deception rather than physical confrontation.

I'm observing the theater of the former US Senate pretending that throwing $250B in fiat at the tech industry will automatically make the fUS competitive; then watch how China pretends to freak out.

I agree with you to a point. I doubt it would happen with China or Russia. But they - and we - are not the only players. Small fish can sense weakness, too. Things are cracking up, and just because we're not going to nuke China (or vice-versa, in all probability) doesn't mean that the systems don't get tested by someone and trigger something much bigger than it otherwise would have.

We have lost deterrence. We nearly lost it under Obama, then Trump made *huge* strides in restoring it (a dangerous and difficult business), but that's been undone and it's gone now - a remarkable achievement for four months.

I don't know. . . she had to work overtime to get her hisband elected. For at least the past year we have seen obvious sogns of Joe's decline and wondered: how is it no one who loves him is quietly getting him to retire (and in better care)?

Is it ambition to ensure that Biden achieved his ultimate dream of the presidency?
Is it to keep the grift in play and/or to avoid prosecution, knowing that Joe's political power fuels the Biden family pay to play business, including not just Hunter, but Joe's brother(s)?

And what about the likely incest and pedo stuff by (at least) Joe and Hunter? Joe's brother owns an island right by Little St. James (Epstein's place). How deep does all that go?
