The Morning Report - 8/2/21

monopaoc.jpg

Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and a new month but of course it's the same old shit. Yes the ramping up of fear over a virus that is fractionally more deadly than seasonal flu and the persecution and censorship of all political opposition to the demented pervert and his puppet masters who stole the 2020 election and installed him in a high chair behind the Resolute Desk. But in this case, it's a golden oldie: Multi-thousand-page spending bills written by lobbyists, criminals, degenerates and other grifters looking to raid whatever crumbs are left in the Treasury to be used to further dismantle our society or merely as embellishment.

I'm talking of course about this insane "Infrastructure" bill which has about as much to do with funding the construction of dictionary-definition infrastructure as Shaun King has to do with being a dictionary-definition colored person of color.

If the United States Senate votes this week on the bipartisan so-called "infrastructure" bill, it would be humanly impossible for any U.S. senator to read it before voting on it.

Sources familiar with the drafting of the text of this bill told Breitbart News it was being written in secret for months outside the normal legislative process, which is supposed to happen in relevant committees of jurisdiction. These sources made the unauthorized leak of the draft text to Breitbart News out of concern that the murky and secretive process behind this bill may have led to widespread corruption throughout its nearly three thousand pages.

The text of a draft of the bill, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News from U.S. Senate sources not authorized to leak it, shows the plan is 2,701 pages long. . .

. . . Senate proponents of the proposal released the final text of the legislation late Sunday evening after this Breitbart News publication, and the final bill text is almost exactly the same as the near-final draft provided to Breitbart News as an unauthorized leak from Congress earlier in the evening. The final bill is only one page longer at 2,702 pages.

Breitbart seems to have the exclusive on this as of this morning and here are some of the goodies it found:

Bipartisan 'Infrastructure' Bill Allows Feds to Bypass 'Buy American' Rules, Outsource U.S. Manufacturing

'Infrastructure' Bill Caters to 'Climate Change' with State-Mandated Carbon Reduction Programs

Infrastructure Bill Contains Billions for Border Crossings; $0 for Border Wall

Infrastructure Bill Will 'Study' Job Losses from Canceling Keystone XL, Without Restoring It

And of course, this observation from the estimable Joel Pollak:

When Trump Wanted Infrastructure, Democrats -- and Establishment Republicans -- Blocked Him

Bingo. You can bet your sweet ass that all sorts of graft and grift are being shoved into the maw of goniffing pigs like Collins, Portman, Tillis, the Alaskan Snowblower, the Maine Pain and Pee-Air Defecto to get them on board. Honestly, with everything else going on is borrowing and spending several trillion dollars more that we don't have, on things we either don't need or will make our lives only marginally more miserable than they will be given the trajectory we're already on, really worth getting our collective Irish up about?

Funny, as in tragic, how the usual talking-while-empty-heads always bemoan "gridlock" in Congress, being completely clueless about the fact that the framers intentionally made the enactment of laws - and especially spending and taxation - as difficult as possible. You were responsible to the people who elected you to represent them and so advise and consent, give and take, and compromise while adhering to prudence, ethics and morality meant that it would often take at the least weeks if not months to finally craft a bill, usually no more than a couple of pages in length, that would be ready for the president to enact. That is if he did not veto it. The Senate was known as the greatest deliberative body for a reason. The aim was not to cavalierly enact legislation for the hell of it, and certainly not for self-aggrandizement.

Okay, you all can stop laughing at me now. At the end of the day, as I consider the last vestiges of America as founded dead and gone as of last January 6th, I don't necessarily give a damn. Let the Cloward-Piven collapse come quickly. But that said, there may be things buried deep on page 837 or 1,455 that repeal the 2nd Amendment, the 9th and 10th, and even the 1st. You can bet there's phraseology in there such as was in Obamacare or that hideous Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that sets up permanent politburos that cannot be defunded or dismantled and give the apparatchiks unlimited power with phrases like "at the Secretary's discretion" or whatever crap was in those aforementioned travesties.

But there is one ray of hope, dim as it may be. This is the Senate bill, which has to be reconciled with the version from the House. And it's now all but open warfare between the Left hand and the Far Left hand as the latter is being strident in killing the bill entirely if it does not get 100% of its demands. Titty Caca AOC is leading the charge against her geriatric overlords:

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that there were "more than enough" votes to prevent the bipartisan infrastructure bill from passing the House without the much larger bill that Democrats want to pass with the reconciliation process.

Anchor Jake Tapper said, "You just heard Joe Manchin a few moments ago talk about the reconciliation bill, $3.5 trillion. He said he can't give him any guarantee it would pass the Senate. what's your response to that?"

Ocasio-Cortez said, "These deals on infrastructure that have gone out are not just bipartisan, but they were bicameral. . . It was made very clear at the beginning of this process that this bipartisan deal if it even survives the Senate, the only chance that it has at passing the House is if the House passes the Senate bill and if the Senate passes the House bill, which is largely in reconciliation. So we can't just have one body driving the entire legislative agenda for the country and, frankly, 20 senators within that one body. So we need a reconciliation bill if we want this bipartisan bill to pass."

Of course she and the other brain damaged psychos in her orbit are pissed because everyone at the bargaining table is white. That's their big concern. Sheesh. In any case it now looks like open warfare between her and Malig-Nancy Pelosi, and the Biden Junta itself. The focus of her ire was the moratorium on evictions relating to the Chinese COVID situation expiring:

"Who's to blame here?" Tapper asked.

"First of all, you are absolutely correct, in that the House and House leadership had the opportunity to vote to extend the moratorium. And there were many and there was, frankly, a handful of conservative Democrats in the House that threatened to get on planes rather than hold this vote," she responded. "And we have to really just call a spade a spade. We cannot in good faith blame the Republican Party when House Democrats have a majority."

"Now, there is something to be said for the fact that this court order came down on the White House a month ago, and the White House waited until the day before the House adjourned to release a statement asking on Congress to extend the moratorium," AOC continued. "This came after weeks. I sit on the Financial Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over housing. We had the housing secretary there, asking about the administration stance. We asked the Biden administration about their stance. And they were not being really forthright about that advocacy and that request until the day before the House adjourned."

Whoa. She just fired a shot across the bow of the Big Guy. In any case, it would be ironic indeed if this entire fiasco were torpedoed by the Maoists. They just don't seem to get or want to play the game as it's been played - to the detriment of the taxpayers - since forever. Dems make demands and the GOP makes compromises so that the Dems get like 90% of what they want and the GOP gets to make excuses. Whatever the outcome this time, it will be a strong indicator of who now controls the whip hand of the Democrat Party.

Anyway, as this garbage floats at the top of the bowl, the undercurrent of unrest and anger over the re-institution of masking and lockdowns and vaccine passports continues. It's pissing people off all over the world and that anger is hitting our shores. Let's see if Alex Mayorkas can turn it back like he did the Cuban refugees. Sorry for the metaphor-mixing. The linkapalooza awaits so have at it.

But really, someone at HBO will tell him to cool it and it will go back to 90 percent conservative bashing.

Kings Dominion pwned Six Flags. But they changed the name of the Rebel Yell because of course they did. The Rebel Yell is one of the oldest wooden roller coasters around, if it is still around. It was portrayed in the 1977 movie, Roller Coaster.

you should ask "Chinese Tapei" what they think of this. In the men's golf, the player from "Chinese Tapei" won the bronze medal after a seven man playoff. Even, I wondered about it and thought maybe this is some weird thing like Hong Kong or Macau. It turns out the "Chinese Tapei" is a euphemism for Taiwan. The really crappy part was the golf announcers going on about Chinese Tapei. They are cucks really. They kept going on about it like it was a real place.

75 Did anyone notice that lengthy, governmental word peppered throughout the excerpts? That one word of utmost power? The word that says, "we agree?" The press whores and the government slatterns do seem to be going out of their way to make clear that this is "bipartisan," don't they? They do adore bipartisanship. It provides all kinds of cover, excuse and protection against reprisals as they penury and enslave us. And such coverage is given to them freely by the GOP as they work against us while engaging in theatrics to the contrary.

Look upon the Republicans, and shake to your boots. Shake not in fear, but in contempt. Let your heart race not with terror but with hatred. Let your hackles rise not from horror but from rage.

76 USA today had an article on our stunning and brave shot potter's protest, which ended with this:

"At a different moment in time, the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, U.S. sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos each raised an arm in a black-gloved protest on the medal stand during the playing of the U.S. national anthem after the men's 200 meters.

They were met with derision and sent home, ostracized from the Olympic movement for decades. Now, of course, they are American heroes. "

86 I went out for dinner yesterday. They had the local NBC channel on (Olympics, then news). The news program ran a segment about the eviction moratorium expiration. They titled it:
"Pay or Get Out:
The Eviction Crisis"

I was somehow surprised by the approach. "Pay or get out" is the norm. It is the way the world works. You must pay for your home, for your food, for your clothing, for everything. "Pay or get out" is not immoral and is not inhumane. It is not a crisis. It just the normal way of the world.

I am puzzled, because there was *also* a competitor who had the ROC badge, which is Republic of China, which is Taiwan. I looked it up when I got home, and sure enough, "Chinese Taipei" is the One-China CCP euphemism for Taiwan. So either ROC means something else at the Olympics, or there are two Taiwanese teams based on political loyalty.

125 The CDC's recent flip-flop on masks, now saying that even the vaccinated should go back to wearing masks when in higher-risk places, is based on a single study that looked at a recent Covid outbreak in Barnstable County MA. The vaccinated were getting infected at alarming rates you see. You can find the study here: https://tinyurl.com/92nkmt

What's left out of the study is that the big town in Barnstable is Provincetown Cape Cod, which has been a gay mecca for decades. At the time of the study, P-Town was in full gay pride swing with an influx of out-of-towners who came for the "frigging in the rigging."

From the study: "During July 3-17, 2021, multiple summer events and large public gatherings were held in a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, that attracted thousands of tourists from across the United States." No mention of what was the attraction.

There are many problems with the CDC Barnstable study. It never mentions Provincetown Cape Cod as the epicenter and the gay orgies going on. Calling it Barnstable County makes it sound suburban white bread. This is intentional. Shades of ignoring AIDS transmission

Posted by: Tinfoilbaby at August 02, 2021 07:23 AM (Ea7/G)

128 From Wiki (so it will be pro-China), here is the "Chinese Taipei" rationale:

To the PRC's perspective, the use of "Taiwan" as a national title would imply a de jure independence of Taiwan apart from the PRC. The term "Taiwan, China" or "Chinese Taiwan" was also rejected because it might be construed as Taiwan being a subordinate region to the PRC.

There is an ongoing movement of Taiwan Name Rectification Campaign to seek alteration of the formal name from "Chinese Taipei" to "Taiwan" for the representation in Olympic games or further potential international events.


So it's political language games, wherein the PRC asserts its de facto control but they do so euphemistically so they - and Taiwan - can pretend that Taiwan is not a vassal state under the "One China" policy.

132 My opinion (I know many disagree):

The over the top machinations that the Democrats are going through to try to get this voting bill passed, tells me that they are in a panic.

I talked myself into believing that they would not try to steal 2020 to the degree they did, because the blowback from the voters would be massive.

They way they keep trying to find a way to turn Manchin tells me that their polling looks the same as polling I am seeing, they are heading to a spanking by the voters. Life long Democrats are saying they will vote GOP in 2022.

They need even bigger fraud than 2020 to keep from losing the House (maybe the Senate too, I haven't looked at that map). Without this voting bill, they are in serious trouble.

I can see a lot of ways that this can all go south, with real violence this time, not that Jan 6th theater.

While I disagree with your attribution of motive (I think they're striking while the iron is hot - they have absolute power right now and want to cement it permanently before anyone wanders off), I think the specific motivation is of lesser importance.

The whole, "the people don't like those in power so they reward those out of power" pattern is going to have an interesting dynamic over the next few years because the people didn't choose those in power now. The people didn't like the overreaching from Obama in 2009, and it seems like the 2008 election was pretty on the level (McCain threw it, Obama didn't steal it).

What about if it was obvious to everyone that Obama has stolen it in 2008 and everything else played out the same? More and more people are feeling like the government isn't reflecting their views, and they're growing frustrated.

So...how about we just ban lockdowns and solve the actual problem? Oh and ban imports from China as well. Because that's how you get to full employment.

The ACA is small potatoes in comparison, but that was a long time ago. Things are moving very fast indeed, and I think that the inflection point is now in the rearview mirror.

The margins aren't that important, as long as the margins are big enough. If they get this "infrastructure" bill, it might be enough. If they get HR-1, it is probably enough on its own. If they get both, it's game over. They're playing for all the marbles now. If either of those two pass (and at least one is going to), it will so thoroughly expand the state and reduce oversight that not holding Congress won't even hypothetically matter. It hasn't mattered in reality for a long time, since the Republicans are just slower-moving Democrats.

I think they're going to get away with it. Time will tell, and I hope that I am wrong.

There is an internal power struggle within the Party that is at least as fierce as the one in the State. If they ram these things through, though, it stops mattering. The State will be ascendant and thoroughly in control, and the Party will have time to sort out their internal differences to determine which of their two major warring factions will control the State. The third faction - to which Manchin belongs - will never be in charge again, but is trying to play kingmaker with the other two.

I think various localities will actually benefit from this - for example, upper Arkansas and the Ozarks are conveniently reachable from all the surrounding states, and are beautiful in the fall. Plane travel is down, but RV sales are way, way up - as well as boats and lake locations.

We can't. This is why for a few years now I've said I'm not interested in policy disagreements with the Left. You cannot have a policy disagreement without some kind of common ground - for example, the Constitution or even something more basic like nation-state republican government - and we have no common ground now with the Left. There is no room for policy. Anyone at war with the Left is my ally. We can sort out our differences later.

251 Illegal immigration has a delayed impact on a local level. Last time this happened our taxes went way up to provide extra services for all the people who didn't speak English or never really had any kind of formal education. It was a huge local issue that turned a lot of people away from the Democrats. School services for citizens were greatly reduced. Advanced classes and other activities had to be cut to stay in budget. They still have not gotten that under control and taxes are still increasing. School proficiency and test scores have been hurt because a fair degree of these people have no interest in education or exceeding. Now that cycle is going to start all over again. Some people are just leaving. They've had enough because nobody, namely Republicans, do anything to help them. It also not worth the amount of tax money anymore.

289 From the bacon article:

If pork producers are suddenly deprived of their California customers, they'll have to raise prices elsewhere to offset that loss -- especially if they want to pay for the upgrades that will allow them once again to enter the California market

Which will, though it was not the intent, remove affordable red meat from the shelves. Yeah, yeah, pork is the "other white meat" but it isn't really. I went shopping this weekend during the sales tax holiday and bought a freezer and meat. Meat is essentially unaffordable now. I bit the bullet and laid in a supply against future inflation. I am probably set for the rest of the year (maybe not quite) of regular dinner eating, but it came at a truly eye-watering price. The only thing I bought that was really affordable were the pork chops.

It's insultingly low. For context, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was over $800 billion. Real GDP in 2008 was $15.6 trillion. The ARRA was 5.1% of GDP.

This "infrastructure" component is $1.2 trillion. Real GDP in 2020 was $20.9 trillion. This will be 5.7% of GDP - barely any larger than the last stimulus package, and that last package was woefully inadequate and the undersized stimulus in 2009 elongated the effects of the financial crisis and resulted in lackluster recovery as compared to what's possible.

Realistically, new stimulus and infrastructure spending needs to be at least 10% - and preferably 15% or more - of GDP to really get the job done properly. As always, political gamesmanship is interfering with sound economic policy and will result in another undersized, inadequate recovery package.

Gotta whistle you for a penalty. The correct term in hockey is "offside". "Offsides" is a football term.

368 With the support of Title IX spending, US Women's Soccer started as a powerhouse, winning four of the first five Golds won. But then the rest of the world caught up. Germany won Gold in 2016, and the USA failed to medal. Best the USA can do now is Bronze, after a pathetic run in Tokyo.

And not just manure. If hay or straw from a glyphosate-treated field is used in the garden, wave good-bye to your food. And, your soil is contaminated, too. For years.

Did I mention it's YEARS?

Another mitigation is to remove all the soil and replace it.

I knew Biden's lie about requiring FedGov to "Buy American" was a lie before he finished saying it, the very first time he said it.

I wonder how much is player age affecting that. How long have most of the ungrateful bitches been on the national soccer team and haven't been replaced because these woke idiots think that pink haired bitch and her friends are "the brand." Would younger players with less focus on their spotlight and more on just playing and winning have done bettter?

386 " if livestock eat in a field treated with glyphosate, and a farmer or home gardener uses the manure to grow food, the food plants will die. And thesoil is contaminated for years. Years."

I'm not sure what hogwash is, but this is "hogwash". I spray glyphosate under my grapes, around my garden. It only kills the green stuff it contacts, except plants that have become resistant. It binds with soil and even mixing it with dirty water makes it less effective. I have to add ammonium sulfate to my hard water, or the dissolved solids will make glyphosate less effective.

government will not meet its discovery obligations for all Capitol
defendants until early 2022."

Step 1: ALL held should be let out on bond until then. Their rights to a speedy trial under the 6th amendment are being violated egregiously by this Gov't.
Step 2: Release ALL the video from January 5th 6th. This will comply with a great deal of what is required.

But out Gov't won't do either of these, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt they are political prisoners.

IFR - Infection Fatality Rate: 0.4% (4/10ths of 1 percent)

In other words, if you get it, your odds of dying FROM it - not WITH it - are about the same, slightly more than common seasonal flu.

And we have all sorts of cheap therapeutics that will get you symptom free in 48 hours and virus free in 72.

But you go on being you. I guess spreading panic gets you 5 cents per pixel from Soros.
