The Morning Report - 1/17/22

brofoneverheardsynag.jpg

Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and for many a Monday holiday as we pause to recognize the birthday of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., which is funny because his credo of "content of character over color of skin" is completely antithetical to that of the Maoist cancer that has infected our society, to the extent that had he been assassinated today, the Monday holiday we have would be in honor of James Earl Ray, and not Dr. King. If you think that that's either outrageous or beyond the pale, then you've been in a coma for the past 10-50 years.

On a not completely unrelated note, if you were to check the front page of today's New York Times you would see that the taking of hostages at a Texas synagogue by a British Muslim in support of a convicted terrorist known as "Lady Al Qaeda" was nowhere to be found (safe link to Lara Logan's Twitter feed with the page)

That's because the New York Times is not a newspaper. Its sole purpose is to propagate a narrative and either promote or initiate political policy. And reporting on a story that does neither of those things but in fact destroys them is not going to be found on page one, if it can be found at all in the paper itself. I have no interest in taking a look since no doubt the headline will be something like "Area Residents Near Auschwitz Blame Jews for Constant Smoke Conditions, Poor Air Quality."

The jihadi who stormed the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, and took hostages Saturday, demanding the release of convicted jihad terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, is dead, and the hostages are safe. And now comes the real work: whitewashing, downplaying, and ignoring outright what took place, because it doesn't fit the establishment narrative.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Matt DeSarno got the ball rolling when he said, "We do believe from our engagement with this subject that he was singularly focused on one issue, uh, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community, uh, but we're continuing to work to find motive and, and we will continue on that path . . . "

. . . So let's get this straight. A man enters a synagogue and takes hostages, and warns that if anyone gets too close, people will die. He demands the release of an al-Qaeda terrorist. The FBI then asserts that his actions were "not specifically related to the Jewish community," apparently because he was talking only about Aafia Siddiqui, and at least not reportedly railing against Jews and Israel. . .

. . . So why exactly did he do all this in a synagogue? He had the whole wide green world in which to take hostages; why did he choose Congregation Beth Israel of Colleyville, Texas? Once he had taken his hostages, why did he have one rabbi call another rabbi in order to demand Aafia Siddiqui's release? What does Congregation Beth Israel have to do with Aafia Siddiqui? What does its rabbi, or the rabbi whom the hostage-taker had him contact in New York City, have to do with Aafia Siddiqui?

The answer to both questions is: nothing whatsoever. The hostage-taker chose the synagogue over any other possible target because of the widespread belief in the Islamic world that the Jews control the world through various surreptitious means, as Jordanian professor Ahmad Nofal articulated last April. . .

. . . If the "global news agencies" are really in the hands of Zionists, they're doing a remarkably poor job in telling Israel's side of the story, but never mind. The hostage-taker chose the synagogue because he clearly believed that the Jews, and perhaps only the Jews, held the power to secure Aafia Siddiqui's release. The synagogue in Colleyville, in his febrile imagination, would be directly connected to the Jewish power brokers who could be compelled by his hostage-taking to do his bidding.

The FBI should know all this, but it doesn't. Early in the Obama administration, it scrubbed all counterterror training materials that made any mention of Islamic texts and teachings, and severed ties with all the independent contractors (including me) who were teaching agents about the beliefs and goals of jihad terrorists. Islamic anti-Semitism is yet another forbidden area for today's FBI; they can't investigate anything that might appear to be "Islamophobic." So Matt DeSarno is operating out of the willful ignorance the FBI chose as policy years ago. This time, the agency's woke idiocy is actively misleading the American people about what happened in Colleyville.

The hell you say, Robert Spencer! The FBI misleading the American people? When has that ever happened before. COUGH-January 6th-COUGH -- COUGH-Richard Jewell-COUGH. Etc. etc. etc. I understand the FBI has walked back that and now recognizes that the attack/incident in Colleyville did specifically target the Jewish community.
Tell that to dimwitted, dipsomaniac Dana Nessel.

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, about an hour after it had been reported that the attacker was demanding the release of imprisoned terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, Nessel said her "biggest concern" was that the attack was a "hate crime" or "domestic terrorism," pointing to "white supremacy organizations."

"We have seen an incredible rise in rhetoric that is anti-Semitic being trafficked all around the country," Nessel said, noting "an exponential rise in the formation and the membership of these extremist organizations, many of which are white supremacy organizations, and they traffic in hatred against Jews and other minorities."

"If it does turn out that is the motivating factor here, it would hardly be a surprise," Nessel said.

Aside from being an insipid, transparent fraud who helped seal the steal in 2020, she does garner a lot of support from such patriotic towns as Dearbornistan and Boko-Haram-tramck. So her idiotic statement such as it was makes perfect sense.

The current situation is not completely the fault of Joey Soft-Serve and his handlers. In the wake of 9/11/01, itself the culmination of a decade or more of ignoring the unchecked immigration/infiltration of hundreds of violent jihadists and thousands of their supporters (silently or otherwise) who not only rejected assimilation but sought the conversion of America into an Islamic state, what did George W. Bush do? Stared at his navel and joined the Greek chorus of Leftists who prostrated themselves and begged forgiveness for our supposed aggression and oppression of Muslims. Mostly for our alliance with Israel, among other things.

He also opened the floodgates for massive immigration of equally anti-western dark age throwbacks while stomping around in Iraq and Afghanistan with no other purpose evidently than to boost the shares of Raytheon, General Dynamics, Grumman, Boeing and all the rest of the military industrial complex. I assume the contractor that makes military spec steel coffins also made a killing (pun regrettably intended). Bad enough, but the beast that is more and more at our throats is the Dept. of Homeland Security. Along with the FBI/DOJ, they're out to catch terrorists, nudge-nudge-wink-wink.

The Texas synagogue siege Saturday highlights the risk to Americans of the Biden [junta's] singular obsession with targeting Trump supporters as domestic terrorists.

Thankfully, the FBI hostage rescue team did a stellar job rescuing the hostages, with the only fatality being the hostage-taker, a recently arrived Pakistani-born British Muslim demanding the release of a jailed anti-Semitic terrorist, dubbed "Lady al Qaeda."

It is a shame that their great work was immediately overshadowed by the absurd, PC pronouncement of senior FBI officials and President Biden that no one knew the motive of the terrorist, Malik Faisal Akram. . .

. . . Biden last week called such Americans, even senators who oppose his party's power grab on election laws, "domestic enemies," and likened them to slave owners and segregationists. From his first day in office, he has labeled Trump supporters "white supremacists" and "domestic terrorists." It appears to be his only animating ideology.

But now he has tasked the FBI to chase down conservatives, it is not unreasonable to ask if the organization has taken its eye off the infiltration into the country of a terrorist like Akram. When the feds are busy rounding up MAGA grandmothers and Capitol paraders, are they paying attention to the potential terrorist magnet provided by the porous southern border?

We know that at least two Yemeni nationals on the FBI's terrorism watch list were apprehended in separate incidents last year after illegally crossing from Mexico into California, and that Yuma Sector Chief Border Patrol Agent Chris Clem in December announced the apprehension of a "potential terrorist" from Saudi Arabia who had illegally crossed into Arizona. So the threat is still real.

As polls keep plummeting in this first anniversary week of Biden's presidency, instead of easing voter fears about border security, inflation, [Chinese] COVID, crime, and even the basic competence of the administration, Democrats are strategically preoccupied with the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

From the partisan congressional committee investigating Jan. 6 to the Department of Justice targeting parents at school board meetings as "domestic terrorists," the narrative that conservatives are an existential threat is the Democrats' only blueprint for success in 2022. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has described Trump and GOP lawmakers as "enemies of the state." The DOJ's new domestic terrorism unit, which was revealed last week during a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, targets people who are anti-authority. . .

. . . This is how the Democrats plan to win the midterms, by demonizing and intimidating their political opponents with government power while attempting to mess with voting rules.

I remember in the aftermath of 9/11/01, the usual clueless, bleeding heart idiots kept asking "what did we do to make them angry enough to do this?" Might it be too much to ask the Left to ask that question, not about phony "riots" or hate crime hoaxes, but just in ordinary political discourse, insofar as why those who merely disagree with you and your beliefs do so?

No, of course not. We're an evil that is to be eradicated by any means necessary. Insane.

It used to be that white people who didn't like black people were just bigots. Then they became "white supremacists" or, perish the though, "white nationalists." Over the past few years, the narrative has been that black bigotry towards whites is also because of white supremacism. Oddly, so is black bigotry toward Asians, because Asians are "white-adjacent." The Texas synagogue incident adds the dimension that Islamic terrorists are now *also* white supremacists. Somehow.

Anything violent, hurtful or hateful is either white supremacism or is downstream from white supremacism and a consequence of it. Everything, without exception. Even the much-maligned "patriarchy" is white-supremacism-adjacent. It's all whitey's fault. Everything. No exceptions.

43 Wokeism Is a Religion Without Grace
++++
Articles of faith but no course of action. There is Woke action, of course, and it is destroying the world but it has no spiritual motivation or effects. There is no mechanism for you to achieve salvation if you're among the damned, and no mechanism for you to achieve damnation if you're among the saved. The forms of Christianity that are predestinarian (something with which I have serious trouble, especially the even more-restrictive Calvinist form where it is also prelapsarian) recognized this problem and so layered tendencies toward action and other considerations into the mix.

The Woke didn't even do that. If you're successful or in the majority, you're damned. Period. There is no way out, no behavioral indicator, no means whatsoever to achieve grace. If you're not in those groups, you're in the club no matter what you do. A rich white man could live as a saint and is damned regardless. A poor black man could live as an unalloyed villain and is saved regardless. There are no means to change your status or your fate. It's incredibly regressive and deeply sinister and inflexible.

"If other ages felt less, they saw more, even though they saw with the blind, prophetical, unsentimental eye of acceptance, which is to say, of faith. In the absence of this faith now, we govern by tenderness. It is a tenderness which, long cut off from the person of Christ, is wrapped in theory. When tenderness is detached from the source of tenderness, its logical outcome is terror. It ends in forced-labor camps and in the fumes of the gas chamber."

55 Democrat Candidate for FL Governor Says Ron DeSantis Is Like Hitler "in a Lot of Ways"

Hitler is in Hell right now, so I'm sure there are no current similarities, but if comparing each individually while alive I'm sure there are plenty of ways: loved by millions, slept at night, ate food, breathed air, walks on two... feet the comparisons are endless.

As to the observation that younger people have no idea who Hitler is, Nikki Fried is not doing anyone a favor. At this point 'Hitler' is a sound that triggers a vaguely negative emotion among most people. Its been so overused that it has gone through many half-lives and is no longer dangerously radioactive. If anything, people look at DeSantis and see freedom and prosperity and then told that is "Hilter". if anything it is rejuvenating the Hitler brand and making it look good - further diluting the word as a pejorative and reducing its effectiveness as a trigger word.

I strongly suspect that they're not thinking, and that's likely because they take it for granted. It's New York City. It's the greatest city in the world. It has it all, and everyone envies it. It shall ever and always be the seat of American economic power, the seat of American culture, the seat of American influence and the premier urban center of the greatest continent.

It shall be that way forever, as it has been since time immemorial. No decision they can make will change that, so they don't consider it. And the moment it stops being true - a moment that is very likely (if slowly) playing out right now - not a one of them will understand how it happened or why, and none of them will have been able to predict it.

Which will solve nothing. It may help the UP and on that basis I am not surprised that they're considering it, but it will not help the country or the economy.

This is another area of increasing category overlap. Lots of articles have been a crap shoot for whether they should go into the "Education and what passes for it" section or the "Culture Wars, National Suicide" section. Throw a dart. They work in either category and rightly belong in both.

So it is now. Articles about lockdowns, train robberies, endemic shoplifting, unchecked burglary, carjackings, etc. can often fit into either the "Crime and Punishment" or "It's the Economy" sections. They are both. The economy is in the shitter and not getting better and one of the driving forces behind that is that the blue hives now look at crime - the right crimes, anyway - as a simple fact of nature about which nothing can be done.

75 Wokeism Is a Religion Without Grace

Wokeism is a Religion without Sanctification.

Many things makes Christianity unique among all other pretenders. What none of the others can do is create a genuine transformation of the Natural Man to the Spiritual Man. There are lots of shows, theatrics and acting; but it takes God to actually transform a person to turn in genuine repentance from their wickedness and estrangement from the Creator.

Wokeism doesn't even have the concepts of atonement, justification or sanctification. It doesn't even have a meta-narrative - just temporal anger, jealously, ingratitude and vindictiveness. It is utterly useless no matter how it is presented or practiced.

No, they are still hugely important financially/economically. And politically. And culturally, although to a seriously declining degree as the country disconnects and splits on culture (they're the center of Blue Culture, and a non-entity in Red Culture). But NYC is still hugely important, which is why it hasn't collapsed already. But each time a business makes a decision to move somewhere else, or a person decides to pack up his family and leave, that is a bit more mortar being knocked out from between its bricks.

If it keeps up, NYC will be a center of violence that is important as a cultural hub for Blue Culture and as a political hub for the globalists - but probably little else. An edifice as big and complex as NYC doesn't collapse overnight and it will never vanish - but it will stop being all the things they think it is.

It is also profoundly anti-Christian (or perhaps just counter-Christian) in a seriously important way. As a culture we owe a serious debt to Christianity - even those of us who are non-Christians - because it helped pull philosophy over the line and create fully-articulated, independently sovereign individuals. Merely being in the group (a Christian) is not enough, you yourself must be saved and that is up to you, yourself.

Wokeism is hugely, almost unspeakably regressive in this regard. Not only are there no fully-fledged individuals (the group is the dominant factor, as it was pre-Christianity), there are no individuals at all. They are more backwards - in human development terms - than any other group. Theirs is the lowest human philosophy possible. They're still in the trees.

I think there is. From my understanding - which might not be correct - the thefts aren't happening in rail yards. The gigantic intermodal depots in Los Angeles require a lot of siding time. The trains aren't being looted in the yard where they're loaded, they're being looted on sidings and approaches as the trains are assembled.

And this is still solvable. Guards. Lots of guards with a low-level ROE and a lot of ability to engage in violence against thieves and burglars. And that is where CA policies probably are a factor. I'd bet that if the UP hired some new Pinkertons as railroad bulls to go bust heads on the sidings and approaches, they'd all end up fined and in prison.

>>Youngkin needs to send in the National Guard to any school that insists on the mask mandates he's just outlawed.

That surely, but his time would better spent decoupling school funding from school systems and attaching it to individual students so that the funds are portable and spendable for say, private, charter and religious schools.

The only way to reclaim the future and beat back the marxists is to take back the schools.

I'm going to slightly disagree and add their influence is waning. The mass movement of people into red states is changing that formulation and decreasing the importance of MYC as a financial and cultural center, and that's generational. We continue to see a lot of resistance from people to go back into NYC and work. In a digital age that presence is much less important and people know it. There are far safer, cheaper, interesting places to live and people know it. You will continue to see some major corporations keep their headquarters in NYC, but many will largely disperse for the reasons I mentioned.

138 I think there is. From my understanding - which might not be correct - the thefts aren't happening in rail yards. The gigantic intermodal depots in Los Angeles require a lot of siding time. The trains aren't being looted in the yard where they're loaded, they're being looted on sidings and approaches as the trains are assembled.

And this is still solvable. Guards. Lots of guards with a low-level ROE and a lot of ability to engage in violence against thieves and burglars. And that is where CA policies probably are a factor. I'd bet that if the UP hired some new Pinkertons as railroad bulls to go bust heads on the sidings and approaches, they'd all end up fined and in prison.

141 "A bill initially written to give authorization to NASA lease its property to others and and passed by the Senate has been stripped entirely of that language by House Democrats and replaced with their proposal to federalize elections nationwide. . . Since this tactic is a direct attack on the filibuster, and if successful would forever make it null, we must wonder if Senators Kysten Sinema (D-Arizona) and Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) will vote against it. If they don't, their high-minded claims that they will not end the filibuster rule will be proven to be empty words."

150 I am worried about Biden wanting a war; but it isn't going to work out for him like his backers think. More and more he is reminding me of the hapless Louis-Napoleon (aka Napoleon III) who blundered into the Franco-Prussian war when he was old and sick. (He actually started it) He then decided that he could manage the war personally if he went to the front; and the war ended when he and all of his government ministers were surrounded by the Prussians at Sedan and taken prisoner.

Napoleon III wanted to be seen as the new Napoleon, just like Biden wants to be seen as the new FDR. Which prompted Marx's most famous quip and one good thought out of so many bad ones: "History does repeat; but the first time as Tragedy, the second time as Farce."

151 LOL, sure.

Because we don't already know, from numerous documents and Fauci's own e-mails, that the virus was created in a Chinese bioweapons lab, funded with U.S. taxpayer dollars, courtesy of Tony Fauci and the cabal of idiot white-coat bureaucrats he oversees.

We've known this for a couple of years now, and yet the left still worships Fauci, he still has his government job and his millions of dollars of ill-gotten wealth, and nobody (with the exception of maybe Rand Paul) has done squat about holding him and his accomplices accountable for the enormous damage his hubris and stupidity have caused this nation, and indeed the entire world.

Because of Fauci's and Collins' actions, the USA is on the hook for hundreds of billions of dollars of liability for the damage caused by C-19. China has us over the barrel, which is why there will be tremendous pressure to suppress this news. It won't be enough, however. It will come out. There is too much money in it for trial lawyers.

And the only reason they haven't been successful so far comes down to money and publicity. There is way too much money tied up in Joe Rogan. Spotify has laid out so much that to go after him would be like an NFL team paying out $120 million to buy a franchise quarterback - and then shooting him behind the training facility. They bet the business on Rogan, and they can't afford to take him out.

And his umpteen millions of subscribers would notice. He is protected to some degree by his money and his following. And it's amusing in a way because his money and his following are in part a *result* of their destruction of everyone else. A lot of Rogan's audience - and therefore his money - might follow someone else if anyone else could exist. He possesses a pseudo-monopoly and the powers that be made it by executing all of his competitors.

This new scheme by Schumer is still nonsense. All it means is that he will actually get to end debate, which McConnell had been blocking just to mess with him. It still doesn't change anything; the bill still doesn't have 50 in favor. He still can't get it passed without ending the filibuster, and all this does is force a bunch of dems in red districts to vote prog on the record (guys like Tester), which is suicidal.

I believe the stock is just a farce, propped up by the billionaire left class. They lost a ton of business after their decision to reject the sales of pre-paid AR-15's after Sandy Hook.

I've seen a few of their franchise businesses close around here (Dick's and Golf Galaxy), and that was before covid.

I personally haven't been in one in years and will continue to bring my business to Academy, local and online.

194 You will continue to see some major corporations keep their headquarters in NYC, but many will largely disperse for the reasons I mentioned. The pool of talented people they need for staff is shrinking. Culturally, their influence in wanning- and they have their woke selves to blame.

You don't understand modern business. This "pool of talented people" has been redefined. "Talented" now means completes more DEI checkboxes. There was an interesting screed on Twitter where some Normal hidden within a BigTech was describing life there. Essentially it was every stereotype pathology of what life would be like with raging Woke Activists in many of the cubicles.

Regularly scheduled business meetings were hijacked early to be group whining sessions where everyone was expected to reveal their inner neuroses, psychotic episodes and tales of misery and woe - which apparently runs rampant in that particular office.

NYC will do fine.

It's easy enough to find out. Looking at gross revenues, they took a small hit (about 2%) in 2018, then recovered (2019 was higher than 2017) and took off hugely in 2020 along with the other mega corps. Profit margin has been essentially unchanged, hanging between 28% and 32% except for right at the start of the COVID madness, when it tanked for a quarter. After that, it's above the historical trend, pushing close to 40% in 2020 otherwise.

They haven't seen serious revenue or profitability changes over the past five years. The net story has been moderately positive. The stock price is disconnected from the fundamentals, but it is not counter to those fundamentals. Their stock has moved a lot more and done so a lot faster than the business performance would indicate, but the business performance has not been bad.

The modern Left is completely opposed to everything MLK stood for. MLK's essential argument is that men are men and they shouldn't be discriminated against due to what they are (skin color, in his main argument) but rather rewarded or not based on who they are (character, morality, work, etc.).

That is 100% opposed to the contemporary Left. King's approach is non-Woke. It is, in fact, anti-Woke. It is utterly incompatible with the modern movement. Today's dominant philosophy is (like it was long ago) race essentialist, not race incidentalist.

The junta in power, for a start.


I found it interesting that the "White House" issued a statement shortly after the hostage situation became known to local authorities. The implied that somehow Pudding Head was fully briefed on the situation.

Now I am thinking about all of the gears and parts that have to be put in motion to make such a briefing take place, and I'm wondering other than time and location, what exactly was stuffed into that "briefing".

Certainly nothing actionable. Hostage taking is a routine matter for a lot of SWAT teams, and your normal garden variety hostage situation doesn't merit dragging the POTATUS out of bed and saying "there is a hostage situation but we don't know anything else".

So why was this briefing better understood and had travelled so quickly and so high in such a short period of time? Its sort of like having a precog on staff.

Posted by: Reuben Hick at January 17, 2022 09:18 AM (iMXIi)

And there are two factors the Soviets could have never predicted at play now. The first is technology, in that a brain drain no longer requires (though will often coincide with) physical movement. You can move from a hyper-woke company to a less-woke or non-woke company without moving in a lot of cases if you're in the Laptop Class. Remote work - possible for a long time but made mandatory recently - enables employees to become mercenaries. No one could have predicted that development. The other is less brain drain but brain expulsion. These big firms actively push *out* people who aren't compliant and down with the struggle. That ideological purity (or just tolerance with an absence of negative commentary) is the key factor, and brains or ability are second.

307 "The hostage-taker was killed in a hail of gunfire."--Omicron or Delta?

The Hussein Administration decreed long ago that Islamo-Terror was caused by Your Lying Eyes. And Shuddup.

On the bright side, Dirty Bob Mueller gets his spare bedroom back!

308 Last night, there was a post that included Paul Joseph Watson's latest video.

I used to like PJW immensely, even if he was a bit black-pilled, but his material has become increasingly racialist. On Gab, the trend for self-proclaimed National Socialists is to point at Russia as an example of a better way of organizing society. Get it? A kelptocracy run by a former KGB agent is better than the American system.

PJW is now making that argument, specifically dredging up Russian propaganda that blames the failure and break up of the USSR on "ethnic differences" as they suggest America is on the verge of a race war and that whites would willingly "flee to countries like Canada and Australia".

That last bit exposes the farce for what it is, yet there's PJW, pushing it right along. Are any of you paying attention to how much worse things are in Canada and Australia right now? Ready to pull up stakes and move from here to there? C'mon, man...

309 Uh...I usually include my Gab profile in the URL for posts here. I just received a message that Gab has been banned.

Is that true? Also, why?

Why has the ONLY free speech social media platform in the entire world been banned by AoSHQ?
