The Morning Report - 12/9/21

yaybipartkong.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and a story that some might shrug off or go unnoticed given everything else that's going on is actually rather symbolic of it all and on a number of levels.

The arsonist who allegedly torched the Fox News Christmas tree was freed after his arraignment Wednesday night because his charges were not eligible for bail under new liberal reform laws

"I didn't do it!" suspect Craig Tamanaha, 49, claimed to reporters outside Manhattan criminal court after being asked about the early morning arson that caused about $500,000 in damage outside the Midtown building that houses Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post.

Tamanaha, a vagrant with a lengthy rap sheet, also went on an incoherent rant outside the courthouse. He denied the arson and hurled obscenities at reporters before asking them for a cigarette. . .

. . . Outgoing Police Commissioner Dermot Shea recently described "the resulting crime that has flowed from disastrous bail reform law" as "insanity."

It is insanity. But there's both a method to the madness and vice versa. Tucker Carlson takes it a step further.

"A Christmas tree is a symbol. It's a symbol of a specific culture. It's a symbol of a much-loved tradition that's hundreds of years old. Above all, it's a symbol of a religion, the world's largest. Torching Christmas trees is an attack on Christianity, obviously. It's an assault on religious observance," Tucker said, adding that such attacks on other religions would be considered a "hate crime."

"The DOJ can tell you precisely how many Qurans were burned last year in the United States, but they don't keep track of Christmas trees," he continued. "Why is that? Well, because they couldn't care less.

TuCa's right, of course. It is a "hate crime," but I detest that term because it is yet another example of how the left manipulates and twists language as a means to control society. Crime is crime, regardless of the motive. To make some motives "more equal than others" is part and parcel of divide and conquer, IMHO. The deviant in question is a nut, so whether or not he understands his actions other than to have some sort of orgasmic delight in torching a Christmas tree is debatable. The motivation behind a crime is crucial to understand why it was committed, but should never be categorized as the crime itself. That's getting into the weeds a bit but considering the continued imprisonment of innocent Americans in the Garland Archipelago on the pretext of "insurrection," the issue has deadly serious implications.

A psycho torching a Christmas tree was not the real crime, especially given the mental state of the deviant in question. No, the real crime was the State, in this case the real deviants and psychos in charge of New York City and New York State letting him off scot free. It makes the notion of a slap on the wrist look like a date with Old Sparky in comparison. Just the other day, a student was brutally murdered on the Columbia University campus. Absolutely tragic yet bitterly ironic given the times we live in.

Last week, Davide Giri, a Columbia graduate student, was stabbed to death by a gang member with a lengthy prior record. The unprovoked killing took place only a block from where freshman Barnard student Tessa Majors had been stabbed to death in 2019. Students and parents are now insisting on increased security both on-campus and surrounding the campus. One tweet demanded that Columbia use "some of the university's multibillion endowment to increase security around the park and the projects." The university and NYPD boosted security patrols. Bollinger solemnly declared, "On behalf of all of us at Columbia, I extend my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to each and every one of you. And from us I send our love and support to Davide's parents and family."

It would be easy to mock the Columbia students. They wished for law enforcement to disappear, called the police and university racists, then demanded more cops the moment the students perceived that they might be in danger. But college students can't be blamed for being idealistic and ill-informed. The educational experience involves intellectual experimentation and engagement with social institutions.

The blame instead lies with the adults in the room. . .

. . . In today's world, it's worth asking where the adults have gone. The country needs people in positions of authority who are not afraid to point out when some members of the community are acting recklessly and who don't ignore common sense when crafting and implementing policies. Such leaders would have told the Columbia students: "We support your right to express your point of view. But you're wrong, and we're not going to let you endanger yourselves and others."

Once again, are these consequences unintended or totally intentional? To wit, does the madness drive the incompetence, vice versa, or both? And in the end, does it really matter? Taking a high-level view of the flaming landscape, now ask that question about every policy that has been implemented since Joey the Wonder Vegetable was installed in the high chair. Did they know they'd lay waste to our economy, security and society or did they really believe all of this would be a raging success beyond anyone's wildest dreams?

It makes no sense; it doesn't have to really. They have an unshakeable belief in their absolute moral authority to impose their plans on us, no matter the consequences. And if it all turns to shit or flaming Christmas trees - and ultimately cathedrals - well, it's not their fault that we subhuman ingrates sabotaged them.

Friend and friend of the blog Michael Walsh starts off his latest excellent essay conveniently enough with the example of New York City in the bad old days of the 70s and 80s.

Back in the early days of talk radio, the late Bob Grant used to have a tagline: "It's sick out there and getting sicker."

The pugnacious New York City host, who ruled the local airwaves on WABC in the '80s and early '90s, came to fame during the previous nadir in the city's fortunes, the David Dinkins administration of 1990-93. Crime was out of control, murder was at record highs (2605 in 1990), and there seemed no way out of the sealed box decades of Democratic administrations had constructed for the city.

Then came the Rudolf Giuliani administration (1994-2001) and things changed almost overnight. New police chief Bill Bratton cracked down on so-called "lifestyle crime," such as the city's omnipresent squeegee men -- intimidating derelicts who "cleaned" car windshields with filthy rags for a mere quarter --and subway turnstile jumpers. By 1995, murders had fallen to 1,550 and by 2001, they had plummeted to 960. All that was required was political willpower.

That's in short supply these days, as America under the Biden [junta] lurches from crisis to crisis, many of them of its own making, whether willfully or accidentally. . .

. . . The Trump interregnum between eight years of Obama and four (?) years of Brandon gave us full employment, a strong economy, plentiful oil and gas, low inflation, a sturdy stock- and real-estate market, and a stable society that was not always at each other's throats.

That's all gone now, replaced by soaring crime rates, domestic totalitarianism, international instability, and a continuing, manufactured and media-whipped hysteria over the "pandemic" as we enter the "dark winter" that candidate Biden promised and is steadily delivering on.

In short, it's bad out there and getting worse. So what are you going to do about it?

Well, as the masthead here at AOSHQ advises, per H.L. Mencken, "hoist the black flag and start slitting throats." The way things are going, that might not be mere rhetoric. Certainly our throats are being slit left, right and center (see: Ashli Babbit, Roseanne Boyland to name but a few). With all the atrocities and outrages being perpetrated on us both from within and outside of government, what recourse do we really have? Our politicians, governmental institutions, systems of checks and balances are so thoroughly corrupted that slamming on the brakes, let alone shifting into reverse and flooring it, is well nigh impossible. And even if by some miracle we do take back the White House and both chambers of congress, how do we overcome the corruption that makes restoration a non-starter? Worse, we still have a significant portion of the populace who, after years of brainwashing, now considers America as founded and all of us who want it back as an evil to be eradicated "by any means necessary" - quite literally slitting our throats if not shooting us into mass graves.

So to answer Mr. Walsh's question, I honestly have no freaking idea of what I'm going to do aside from venting my spleen on a daily basis until I, too, get carted off and charged with a "hate crime."

But, why should I worry? With more and more of the public tuning out the propagandists and witnessing first hand the flaming ruins of the past 11 months touching their own lives, the only option left for the Klain/Kalorama Klown Kommittee is . . .

. . . Start a shooting war with the Russians!

We now confront the classic circumstances that pose a serious risk of war, and no one is paying attention.

The [so-called quote-unquote "president"] and his party, in deep trouble as an electoral year looms, need to goose their support with something. There's no possibility of that using any domestic issue so they turn to old reliable: A fake foreign enemy, Russia, that needs little demonization because the US military, intelligence agencies and corrupt media never gave up their outdated, long baseless view of the war target as an enemy.

Plus, that faux enemy is hated by the Western woke left for its stubborn refusal to embrace the West's program of idiotic ideas and civilizational suicide.

Hence, America's gullible and inattentive public still sees it as the modern iteration of Stalin and Hitler.

In sum, a sweet little war with needlessly hated Russia is just the ticket for the Bidencrats. . .

. . . Heavily armed militaries, loaded with sophisticated weaponry, need similarly equipped enemies. Since America is rapidly becoming an economic colony of China, dependent on it for everything from computers to toilet paper, China can't serve the purpose. Besides which, America's elites owe their unimaginably increased wealth to China, which, hence must remain a friend, whatever occasional fake critical noises emanate from Washington.

So, Russia will have to do.

This is highly dangerous and unnecessary madness.

You'll be happy to know that along with raising the debt ceiling, we have wonderful leaders in the GOP that are itching to not just help the Democrats send your boys, girls and junk-tuckers-in-heels and pregnancy flight suits to go off to die in the Ukraine. Soon, maybe an ICBM or two might land right on our soil as a result. Yay! Bipartisanship!

When Russia cut off the supply of adoptable children for the gays in the USA was the moment the left hated Russia. It wasn't the Russian leadership, it was the Russian people themselves who demanded a referendum on the issue.

It all started when a gay 'couple' left an adopted Russian child to die in an overheated automobile. The child was just a prop to them.

106 New York proved the model of "Broken Windows" policing described above. Various Texas cities (Houston, IIRC, though I don't rightly remember) proved the model of "community policing" where cops should live in the places they patrol when possible. Both help. Together, they appear to work quite well.

So typical Leftist strategy would be to undo both. They have not done so, though, in an odd and very nasty departure. This is because we're dealing with the New Left, not the legacy Left. Pelosi and company would have just ended the effective policies. The new crowd, though, is not satisfied with such halfway measures. The New Left instead pursues the *opposite* concept. If "broken windows" policing works, then not only will we stop it, we will also flatly decriminalize the minor crime it targeted. If "community policing" works, then we not only stop pursuing we will actively work to have cops work outside of their familiar areas.

All the better to drive more crime and less trust in the pursuit of greater corrosion.

So this is nothing new. These policies are put in place deliberately and with malice. It is FAR past time we all saw it that way. The left says they want us dead and then enact policies to cause death. Time to wake up and understand this is deliberate.

118 SAINT OF THE DAY
St. Juan Diego (1474--154 was a poor and humble peasant of the lowest class of Aztec Indians living in what is today Mexico. His native name was Cuauhtlatoatzin, meaning, "eagle that talks." He was baptized at the age of fifty by a Franciscan missionary priest and received the Christian name of Juan Diego. It was he to whom Our Lady appeared as a pregnant Aztec princess on December 9, 1531--at that time the feast of the Immaculate Conception--on the hill of Tepeyac, in present-day Mexico City, as he was on his way to Mass. To help Juan Diego prove to the bishop that she had truly appeared, the Virgin Mary miraculously left her image on his tilma. This image is now famously known as Our Lady of Guadalupe. St. Juan Diego's tilma still bears the image of Our Lady (miraculously, as the plant fibers normally disintegrate in 15-20 years) and it hangs in one of the most famous Catholic pilgrimage sites of the world, the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Juan Diego was canonized in 2002 by Pope St. John Paul II as the first indigenous saint from the Americas. His feast day is December 9th.

142 It's long past time to reclassify what's happening on our southern border. It is not illegal migration. It is also not exactly an invasion, though that's much closer to the mark (albeit not universally). What it is on balance is a modern slave trade.

How do those people get here? By and large, they pay coyotes. How do they pay them? These people are impoverished peasants with no money, so how do they come up with $5k (on the low end) to pay the coyotes? They don't. They pay the coyotes on credit. The pay over time with remittances from here. Why pay once you're in? Why not welsh on the deal? Because the coyotes via the cartels hold your family back home hostage and will murder them or put them into the sex trade if you do.

This is slavery. It is an illegal semi-permanent indenture perpetuated by the use of hostages. And our government is active business partner with the cartels who do it. The US government and other Woke Folk, for all their bleating about 1619 and the legacy of slavery, are actively engaged in the largest slave trade in the world. The ones coming over who aren't slaves are criminal invaders eating up territory for the cartels.

152 How to end illegal migration? Walls and actual fucking enforcement would help. But there is another solution that would likely be more effective, though come with a higher cost of human life: taxes. Tax all US dollar and Forex wires to any Latin American country under $10,000 at a rate of 80%. Tax all transfers over that amount at 50%. Make the voluminous small-time family transfers that finance the cartels via the slave trade entirely untenable and make the big-time corporate and NGO transfers that finance the cartels via the government so painfully expensive that nothing but legitimate business ventures could possibly justify it.

Michigan Gov Wretched Whitmer: Biden Vaccine Mandate "A Problem For All of Us"


Meanwhile, the Big3 automakers have their own mandates in place, explicitly telling salaried employees they don't care that Biden's mandate has been blocked by a federal court, because "that only applies to federal mandates, not mandates by private companies". And they are all set to lose employees come JAN 5, 2022 if everyone's (medical or religious) exemptions are not approved. Only way this is stopped is if Wretched turns into DeSantis and bans private companies from having vaccine mandates.

Just saw a documentary, "Adrienne," about actress/writer/director Adrienne Shelley. She was murdered by an 18 year old illegal immigrant, who attempted to make it look like suicide (strangled). Her husband interviewed him for the documentary because he wanted to know what happened. The guy worked construction jobs in NYC and stole from nearby apartments because he needed to send money back to his mom to pay for his passage to the U.S.. He was working in an apartment below Shelley's office apartment, and she walked in on him when he was robbing her, so then he killed her because she was saying "police." This was all through a translator, because of course he still cannot speak English.

So not only a slave trade, but a crime that absolutely leads to subsequent crimes here in the U.S., whether it's identity theft or something much worse, as was the case with the robbery and senseless murder of Adrienne Shelley.

That was my awakening regarding the GOPe. I was actually NeverTrump-ish in the beginning of his campaign. I thought for certain he was only in the campaign to help Hillary win. I was in favor of Scott Walker from WI initially. But my top issues are abortion and illegal immigration/border. When I saw that no one in the GOP took up Trump's platform regarding illegals and the border, that exposed for me that the GOP was shit.

As you say, any one of those candidates could have stated they agreed with Trump's stated positions on the border wall and illegal immigration and that would have driven a lot of his supporters to that candidate. That none of them did said everything about them I needed to know.

206 $13,000 extra Federal bucks every time a hospital puts a covid positive patient on a ventilator. And that's above and beyond what they can soak out of the persons health insurance. Hospitals have been making huge amounts of coin in the last 19 months.

Note well the physical plant and facilities of most any hospital these days. I had a heart ablation earlier in the year - the hospital that performed it looked like a palace. Beautiful lighting fixtures, stone floors and walls, plush carpets. It was like a queen's palace. Even the parking garage was upscale.

It really was presented in an amusing way. There were laughs.

It is, but it is a bit harder than that. There is limitless information available about how none of this shit works. Open borders, decriminalizing small crime, social programs, public education, asymmetrical free trade globalism, money-printing - nothing works, and there is plenty of information about all of it.

But knowing how to find it and then reading it is different. Reading it and grokking it is, too. Acknowledging that literally everything you know is wrong is different still. Being able to do that but not lapse into a fugue state where you become, essentially, an unhinged conspiracy theorist is the hardest of all. The information is available, but this process is *hard.* It is hard and it sucks and it requires courage. Having someone who can lend a hand and say, "yes, this sucks. Yes, this is hard. These things can help. Read and call me" goes a long way. The institutions have *no one* say that.

I disagree. The next grifter organization that will drift in gangland corruption almost immediately will be needed prior to be killed off like the last round. I have no illusions about a new union being honest or whatever. It won't be, and it itself will eventually have to be dealt with as well.

Ending HR is indeed the necessary goal and the primary solution to the problem, but HR is a sinister octopus with its tentacles everywhere. HR has seats on the board and offices in the C-suite. HR often controls the marketing and PR divisions. HR and their ideas are the actual governance body of many if not most major corporations. HR cannot be ended without a massive countervailing force.

I've talked with left leaning LIVs for a long time, and one of the central problems if I talk politics is that they can't tie the political leaders they vote for with the personal results they see in their own lives. For the ones that live in blue states they are always experiencing Heinlein's "bad luck".

274 Books and loud noises, flowers and electric shocks - already in the infant mind these couples were compromisingly linked; and after two hundred repetitions of the same or a similar lesson would be wedded indissolubly. What man has joined, nature is powerless to put asunder. - Brave New World

The pairing of reading with woke monsters cannot be too dissimilar to pairing reading with explosions and sirens. Woke educators are teaching children to hate reading, and if they ever touched upon a book that hasn't been corrupted by the woke's tentacles, the wailing would be heard from space. Brave New World was not supposed to be an instruction manual.

Because it doesn't matter if the Vaxx for children "works" because it is non-falsifiable. Kids don't get sick from C19, even if they "test" positive the narrative is that kids didn't get hospitalized and that is all that matters.

They inject raw poison, and if it kills the kid, the blame is put on the Unvaxxed or they bury it as fast as a cat in the litter box.

319 Glenn Beck on Tucker Carlson: US Doctors Were Reviewing Moderna Vaccine In December 2019 Before COVID Hit the US (VIDEO)

https://bit.ly/3y8NiEX

Beck mentioned that Dr. Ralph Baric reviewed Moderna and Dr. Fauci's coronavirus vaccine in 2019. Something we reported early this year in February.

That should say "December 2019, before the Plandemic narrative says COVID-19 hit the US." I think a lot of data now supports the idea that COVID-19 was in the USA months earlier than the narrative claims. Begs the question... when did they start work on a SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 vaccine? If they want us to believe that the vaccine went through the typical 18 months of development to be ready for distribution to public in DEC 2020, that means they started development for it in... June-July 2019.

And remember that Event 201 was in Oct 2019. Then Nov 2019 is supposedly when the "lab leak" happened to start the Plandemic.

348 Very interesting piece from Toto on Media Matters going after Joe Rogan. In any other time, Rogan would be seen as a free thinker, maybe even a liberal. And condemning Rogan's interview subjects is just weird. For example, Rogan interviewed Matt Taibbi, a guy who (until the woke left took over) was widely seen as pro-communist but (because we live in totalitarian times) is now seen as conservative, only because he supports free speech and doesn't spend his column-inches obsessing about PDJT.

I had a friend whose son went to NCAT on a full ride to get an engineering degree and left after the first year because the academic standards were so bad. My friend said it was the most depressing thing he'd ever seen. His son would bring home screenshots of things that 300 and 400 level student would post on online classes because he thought they were amusing, but to adults it was terrifying.

He explained to his son that these were his peers, and that these were people who would be helping with bridges and aircraft one day.

The man was Jeffrey Allsbrooks, a staff member in the House Chief Administrative Office - a nonpartisan outfit that provides "support services and business solutions" to House offices. Allsbrooks told the USCP that he forgot the handgun was in his bag. The department said it is charging Allsbrooks for carrying the gun without a license.

There was no indication of any other security threat on Capitol Hill besides the one arrested individual. The USCP said it is "looking into what happened before, during and after those four minutes."

Seems like the same logic the left uses to call abortion a "right" would apply here and dictate that the state has no say here.

Ha! Says you.
Someone forgot to dot the "i" on page 17 of the "Proposal to Study the Potential for the Possibility for Preliminary Investigation"
Once he has redrafted by hand, from scratch, the Proposal-- and it is approved by three votes of the Committee for Recommendations to the Committee for Proposals-- then he can submit the Proposal to triplicate vote by the Committee for Proposals.
Upon successful clearance by the Committee for Proposals, he will begin drafting the "Study of the Potential for the Possibility for Preliminary Investigation" and things will really start heating up!

415 "Back in the early days of talk radio, the late Bob Grant used to have a tagline: 'It's sick out there and getting sicker.'"


The problem now is, we've had another thirty years of cancerous Marxism metastasizing in our culture and institutions and a near-complete atrophy of any sense of Christian morality or civic duty from which to base a counter-attack to push back on the rot.

We can't just tell people to recall the roots of their faith and draw on their upbringing in church or Boy Scouts or Indian Guides or Kiwanis volunteerism... They have had none of those. The only thing current young voters have to draw on is mob mentality of right & wrong.

We must rebuild from practically square one, which is why I am so horrifyingly pessimistic as to a potential turnaround of our nation's fate.

416 I disagree with JJ the stolen election was the worst part, the cherry on top. No, it was watching identified coup plotters and participants at the highest level of government not just walk but not even get called out.

Putin must chuckle every time some warmongering piece of shit in the United States government lectures him about human rights. I realize it would plunge all of us into the Stone Age and impoverish us immediately, but there would be a near-sexual joy if Putin turned D.C. into glass.

For me, the worst part is that the GOP went along with it and abetted both the fraud and the Russia hoax. They made only cosmetic effort to stop the hoax and none whatsoever to stop the election fraud. Their reply to all of it seems to be "we fucked the country with a battering ram, shut up and move on"

Had this arson been directed toward any other religion we'd have heard non-stop assaults on "white Christian nationalists" and how their hatred inspired a "sick person". Where are the anti-leftist assaults, you can bet he was inspired by those!

Yep, so it's not "just" hospital administration greed, this is being mandated by pols. The directives come from DC and CMS.

Michigan as well. Wretched put out a decree threatening doctors for prescribing and pharmacists for filling the prescriptions with revocation of their licenses to practice medicine.

I'd like to know how any doctors or pharmacists live with themselves knowing they are not doing what is best for their patients. The fact that so many are choosing to stay quiet and protect the jobs instead of do what's right and save people's lives tells me all I need to know about putting my trust in the medical industry ever again.

Sad, but true. There are a few, even here in NJ, who are prescribing ivermectin but they're rare birds in private practice and probably refer serious patients to the ER.

Huh. I wonder if this is why I got a political call on my cell with a recorded message in my voicemail from Elissa Slotkin yesterday. I listened to it long enough to hear "Hello, this is representative Elissa Slotkin and I want..." before hanging up and deleting the message. Now I wish I would have listened to see what bullshit she was spewing.

437 I doubt there are enough Constitutional Republicans (those who hold to our former form of government) to put a dent in it.

After 100 years of Progressivism, most "conservatives" teach their children to auto-defer to jack-booted career mercenaries.

Most "conservatives" beliwve with all their hearts that Social Security is a legitimate lock box fund with their name on it, and that they are "gonna get minez" - that you can get something for nothing, and that the government can solve social and economic problems so long as the right people are in charge, and so long as wealth is forcibly confiscated and redistributed to their own pet causes.

Only violent and bloody civil war can change the direction from Totalitarianism.

438 What to do? How about regaining control of government with a sufficient margin that the right wing becomes the influential block like the squad has done on the left?

The question really is how do we shift the electorate?

MAGA has to include all Americans and a permanent underclass should be unacceptable to us all. Outreach to the black community through vouchers and training programs is the win/win to shift the electorate, control government, and defund the left.
