The Morning Report - 5/26/22

sportstrife.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and over the course of the past 20-odd years of my life, which coincides with my political consciousness-raising (to coin a phrase from the 60s), I've come to the conclusion that perhaps the prime descriptors of the Left are projection and hypocrisy. But in the wake of the past few days, I might have to add another. Operationally, I see the Left in the manner of a psychotic driven by Munchausen's by Proxy syndrome but with a slight twist. They don't feign their own illness to draw sympathy; they themselves are the vectors of disease, illness, dysfunction and misery while pretending to be saviors and healers. They save nothing, they heal nothing. They cast blame on straw men as well as those who attempt to expose them with blood libels and damnations, all the while creating more misery, poverty, dissolution and death even as they attain greater and greater political power at the expense of the perpetually bamboozled masses who reflexively vote straight ticket Democrat every two years. Lather, rinse repeat.

Bearing that in mind, when you examine everything the Left has done both in and out of government since the late 1950s if not before, you understand full well how what happened in Uvalde came about. You also understand how black on black violence racks up a body count that averages out to a Uvalde every single weekend in just Chicago and Baltimore alone. Add on top of it the millions of black babies killed in the womb. Add on top of that every black youth who wound up in prison for years or in the city morgue, if not from gunshot wounds then from a drug overdose.

Of course, the problem isn't the societal dissolution caused by Democrat imposed poverty and dependency reinforced by black self-inflicted cultural norms that eschew morality, education and a desire for self-improvement as "acting white." Worse, the white leftist poison of a rigged system designed to keep black people down. How could it be?!

And here we are, two years after a criminal named George Floyd died while resisting arrest for passing counterfeit money, after ingesting his drug stash. But in topsy turvy "Sympathy for the Devil" world, every cop is a criminal and all the sinners saints. Who better than Barack Hussein Obama – mmm, mmm, mmm! – to explain it to us knuckle-dragging bitter clingers?

“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer,” the former president tweeted. “His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.”

“In the aftermath of his murder, a new generation of activists rose up to channel their anguish into organized action, launching a movement to raise awareness of systemic racism and the need for criminal justice and police reform,” he added. . .

. . . In line with most mainstream Democrats, the former president also used Tuesday’s horrific massacre to push gun control.

“Michelle and I grieve with the families in Uvalde, who are experiencing pain no one should have to bear,” the former president said, adding:

"We’re also angry for them. Nearly ten years after Sandy Hook—and ten days after Buffalo—our country is paralyzed, not by fear, but by a gun lobby and a political party that have shown no willingness to act in any way that might help prevent these tragedies. It’s long past time for action, any kind of action. And it’s another tragedy—a quieter but no less tragic one—for families to wait another day."

This mutt. This mutt-eating mutt. Barack Obama, more than perhaps even Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakkkahn combined did more to undo nearly 60 years of progress in race relations than anyone else. Worst racial arsonist ever. But this is typical. The fact that he, a half-black man was elected twice to the presidency, with the help of a black woman worth upwards of $3 billion dollars and the wealthiest dame of any color in the country, continues to beat the drum that America is fundamentally a racist nation despite it's majority white population putting his lazy ass in front of the Resolute Desk literally for no other reason than to finally end the race issue once and for all, is so utterly insulting and infuriating that it beggars the imagination. And all the more tragic because of the complete cognitive dissonance of far too many people who don't even realize it.

Barack Obama cannot depart for the Infernal Reaches fast enough.

Random observation 1: It's funny how the FBI was able to stop the alleged wannabe Dubya assassin before his attack despite having zero evidence he was actually going to act on his alleged desires, inchoate as they were, while the transexual Leftist freak who shot up the Uvalde HS was well known to school authorities, law enforcement, and made actual threats that he ultimately carried out – yet they did nothing to intercede.

Random observation 2: Beto "Irish Mickey" O'Rourke is truly a low-class turd, lower than the filling in his homemade E.L. Fudge hors d'oeuvres. He's spent his entire joke of a career railing against guns, even bust out loud declaring "hell yeah, I'm coming for them!," only to walk it back a couple of months ago to try and bamboozle perhaps the least bamboozle-able constituency in America when it comes to the second amendment. But yesterday, he flip-flops again by crashing Gregg Abbott's presser, only to be greeted by catcalls and jeers, then applause as he was ejected from the room. The mayor of Uvalde nailed it: "You're a sick son of a bitch!"

17 Saint of the Day
St. Philip Neri (1515--1595) was born in Florence, Italy, to the noble class. After having a mystical experience, he traveled to Rome and entrusted himself completely to God's providence. He found living accommodations with a fellow Florentine in exchange for tutoring his sons, which Philip did with great skill. He then enrolled in philosophy and theology classes at a local monastery in order to become a priest. He suddenly quit in order to spiritually serve the people of Rome. At that time, indifference, luxury, and corruption were widespread characteristics of the Roman clergy. Churches were neglected, flocks were abandoned, and the loss of faith was widespread. St. Philip Neri was a contradiction to all of this malaise. With his characteristic good-naturedness, he lead many to a life of virtue and love for God. He began an oratory for laymen to gather together and practice greater spiritual discipline, which grew and became famous. In obedience to his spiritual director he finally became a priest at the age of 34. St. Philip Neri is known as the "Apostle of Rome." He is the patron of Rome and the U.S. Army Special Forces.

The trial of Michael Sussmann is technically about a single charge of lying to the FBI but the trial has also pretty much laid out exactly how the whole Trump/Russia collusion hoax was created, fed to the FBI and then managed within a small group of corrupt FBI scum to frame Trump and his campaign and tear the country apart.

--

What I would like to see happen is for these school districts to go on the offensive and call out these federal MFers. Contact all parents within your districts and ask them whether they want safe bathrooms for their daughters, or a gov't lunch. Then inform each and every family that Biden and the federal gov't want to strip your child of food if they don't let boys in girl's restrooms. Don't cower in the damned corner and let the gov't bully your districts and put your daughters in potential danger.

I am a Dread Millennial, born in the 80s. Throughout my entire life, from childhood until about 2010, race relations got *better.* It wasn't perfect - I doubt it ever can be - but things improved. There was less hostility and more interaction. The race crooks like Sharpton were still doing their thing, but they were less relevant with each passing year.

Then Obama happened and within five years, race relations were worse than they were when I was a kid.

Morning.

I remember reading a piece a few years ago about a change Mueller made to the FBI back when he was running it under Obama. I forget all the details but he essentially changed the process for career enhancement from one that was based strictly on merit to one that was more subjective.

Consequently a lot of good agents left the FBI or stayed in field jobs and a lot who were more politically inclined, willing to play the game, moved ahead to positions at HQ.

The Trump Russia stuff including Afa Bank was all run out of HQ and not by the field. That was always a huge red flag.

98 Biden Junta: K-12 Schools Must Put Boys in Girls’ Bathrooms to Get Federal Lunch Money

I am old enough to remember when Trump attempted to tie funding with the recipient's policies in regard to Sanctuary Cities/States.

He demanded that the recipients at least not work against federal authorities in immigration matters. But the cities said, "NO" and wanted to continue to receive money and continue to shelter, give-aid, and help avoid arrest and detention to illegals while also frustrating the citizens and the feds in following the law.

And the courts demanded that the cities received the money no matter how lawless they were.

Nothing. There have always been mass shootings.

Our government is the largest mass shooter of all. It spends trillions making bombs, tanks, guns, bio-weapons, jets, drones, chemical agents, training killers, launching satellites for accurate global killing, giant boats with which to launch planes to kill, boats moving under water to sneak up and kill, tearing operatives to assassinate, writing software that causes facilities to explode, arming and funding subgroups to kill, shooting families in the woods, killing families on compounds, and on and on and on.

The only new thing is them pretending to care about killings. The government hates it when the population cuts in on it's killing monopoly.

I believe you're completely correct. But we must face the only logical conclusion of this observation - it is not enough to defeat the Left in an election or two, not nearly enough.

151 Over 107,000 people died in our country last year, many of them very young. That's due to the open border and fentanyl pouring into our communities. Every week scores of youth are shot and killed due to increasing crime and the lack of prosecution. Forget political party, that's our youth, our country's future being murdered. That's countless families grieving the loss of a loved one. We also have an increasing number of people who can't afford food or gas, especially seniors on fixed income. People who have actually contributed to building our country. Meanwhile illegal aliens are running around buying everything with an EBT card funded by our citizens. It's paying for everything from their shelter to their food. They are also overcrowding our healthcare system and using more taxpayer money to do it. Now, do you really think I care about Ukraine, phony climate change or any of the Democrats latest distractions?

Youth suicide is a serious problem and it is getting worse. It was getting worse well before COVID, but COVID response acted as a big accelerator (probably - it certainly correlates well). Something is fundamentally wrong with your civilization when your adolescents start killing themselves. There will always be some, but in a healthy environment the number should be small. When the number grows and grows consistently, your environment is broken.

My own gut-check response is that social media is probably the most influential variable of the past 15 years, but I really don't know.

Yeah, it's by no means a perfect proxy. There is one damn-near perfect proxy, though: counting back change. If the clerk can count your change back properly, I would bet real money that he or she is over the age of 45. It is not a skill anyone teaches anymore, and it hasn't been taught since computerized tills and calculators became cheap and plentiful in the late 80s. It's also a reason why, even if you have cash, that so many places can't do business during a power failure. They can't make change and can't calculate sales tax and can't update inventory.

People need to do the hard job of parenting. Get off your phone. Delete your social media. Plan family events and most importantly listen to your kids. Know what they are doing and who their friends are. Keep them off social media. Know what they are doing at school and who their friends are.

He does point out that (anecdotally to him) that 2000 Mules at least points to intuitive issues in the election, but...meh. Its not conclusive or legally solvable.

In a Busch world, you see, no potential crime would ever be investigated because it needs to 100% provable in court before you'd even look into it - and no one but True the Vote (not a criminal investigative body) is the only one that has looked into this - like at all. And Trump's poll numbers? Yeah, 75M votes is not what one gets if, as Busch strains to point out, you're at a phony baloney RCP average of 41%.

Probably. This is certainly true of Netflix. Netflix is a cash furnace in an increasingly crowded market with a decreasingly compelling offering. They're toast. Facebook is not. It's a major profit engine and will likely remain so for quite some time, but I agree they may well never recover prior highs. They have a bot problem that will hurt revenue if it gets exposed, they are hostile to large numbers of users and the kids don't like it. Facebook was a youth platform but it's now a middle-aged platform. When the youth become middle-aged, they won't switch to Facebook but they'll find that their preferred platforms have become middle-aged platforms as well. FB is probably past its peak.

It's not appropriate for active shooters (which is why the protocol supposedly changed for those situations decades ago) but it is to prevent the escape of an armed felon with a gun. Makes sense in the context of a manhunt where you've holed a guy up in some place.

217 ...while the transexual
Leftist freak who shot up the Uvalde HS was well known to school authorities, law enforcement, and made actual threats that he ultimately carried out – yet they did nothing to intercede.


This is not true, that he was a transexual. That has been thoroughly debunked. I have been seeing this repeated here regularly, including by multiple commenters on this am's Tech thread.

It appears that the rumor/missed ID 'pics' originated on 4Chan, and quickly spread. Unfortunately, I cannot find a reputable conservative site to link (groupthink doesn't just happen on the Left), but dozens of liberal sites have reported the debunking. Take your pick.

He did once wear eyeliner to school when he was ~12 according to WaPo and DM, and was predictably called a fag for it. Because that is what 12 year olds do to each other -- pick on any oddities.

And who knows for sure; he might have been tranny. But there is no reliable evidence to prove it. Anyhow, I'm glad the defective little shit is dead, the gene pool sez Thanks.

Just as in the case of Derek Chauvin, the police were mindlessly doing as they were trained. And also doing what draws them to be police in the first place, demonstrating that they were in control, with no regard for consequences.

221 If you haven't been following the Sussmann trial this is a good recap of what happened yesterday by Margot Cleveland. Ironically, one of Sussmann's own witnesses helped make Durham's case for him about how the Russia hoax was fed into the FBI using lies.

At this point the question of Sussmaan lying to the FBI has been proven many times over. It's beyond dispute. That being said it's a DC jury so the chance of a conviction of a prominent Democrat is small.

Incidentally, the tech executive who helped create the Russia hoax used to be a consultant to Obama in the White House. And I suspect he was also involved with the fake hack of the DNC by Russia.

Nothing. There have always been mass shootings."

actually, no their haven't. Looking through the record, the first really big one in our history was in 1966, when Charles Whitman shot a bunch of people from the UT Tower. Since then the rate has slowly been accelerating. looking through the record of previous decades, you can find gang violence and some notable union violence when people were killed, but not mass random killings. I've often wondered why the St. Valentine's Day massacre was such a big story in 1929 - 7 gang members dead? That's less than any average Saturday night in Chicago, now. But in 1929 that was absolutely shocking, such things didn't happen then.

Posted by: mustbequantum at May 26, 2022 09:00 AM (MIKMs)



Let me ask you something, in all seriousness.

The teachers that are profiled on this page, trannies, homos, woke 20 somethings with CRT and "faggot ally" prints all over the classrooms, do you think those people would own a gun if you allowed them, and then use it in the face of gunfire, with any level of proficiency?

The question is "Where are the male teachers?"

75% of the profession is staffed by LGBTQ-friendly mask-Karens that threaten to strike if they are forced to return to the classroom.

If cops have become referees in a game of life and death where they'll just shoot both sides then maybe the idea of cops is an idea that ran it's course, because they obviously aren't there to protect anybody. I think back to when dimebag darrel was killed while performing with his band by a crazy mofo who stormed the stage and shot him and a few others. The cop that arrived on the scene was a true frigging hero. He didn't wait for backup, or orders. Nooo, he grabbed a shotgun, went in through the back door and blew the bastard's face off, and saved a shit ton of lives.

Late yesterday Sussmann's lawyers said that Sussmann himself would testify today provided Durham's team limited the scope of their questioning including no questions about their pre-trial negations with Sussmann. Durham's team responded with a sealed filing so nobody knows as of yet what they did or didn't agree to.

If they had leadership qualities and initiative they would tend over time not to remain there(and people do rise and fall).

Soldiers will fight valiantly given leadership, but by nature they don't provide that on their own.

He seems to have a better handle on the 1st Amendment than many Americans. I don't expect him to be an ally on every issue but he has probably done more to bring the issue of leftist censorship to light than anyone else on the right.

361 This criticism of cops seems to essentially be a criticism of peasants/working class people. Of course the lower classes obey orders. If they had leadership qualities and initiative they would tend over time not to remain there(and people do rise and fall).

My experience in the military, fire-fighting, and construction has shown me that one's ability to confront personal danger isn't a perfect correlation to economic class. But I've seen very little bravery from the well to do.

It declines as an elite becomes decadent, but the aristocracy traditionally had the highest death rate in warfare because it was necessary for them to literally lead from the front.

It's not that the lower orders aren't brave, it's that they don't tend to take independent action. Independence (which tends to go along with a willingness to disregard rules and morals) is a necessary quality in complicated situation. Sufficiently independent people may even lead overthrows of society and dramatically overhaul laws and traditions.

Peasant revolts often suffer from a dearth of leadership. If they just actually turned their victories into something productive, they would win the overall conflict.

374 In group settings, oftentimes the one who leads is the one who is willing to take the lead. Depending on the other qualities of the individual that can be good or bad, but nevertheless a large portion will tend to follow orders and rules rather than make them. It would probably be a bad thing if too many people were fighting over what should be done, but you can't get by with only followers.

Well one can be born there and fall if one is overly sincere and follows the rules, but to remain one must generally be a reasonably capable hypocrite. A baron won't openly challenge the king as that'd be suicidal but he is not half so loyal and dedicated as he professes to be. Officially the upper class believes in all kinds of crap about global warming and drugs and abortion. How many actually live that way? Sure there are Hunter Bidens, but over time that group tends to fall.

The risers are more obviously cases of risk takers. They do things that others don't or wouldn't consider doing in a more obvious manner. And again historically winning victories on the battlefield used to be the quickest path to position. Modern day would tend to be business and professions. Risk-taking in investments also generally scales with wealth-levels. Despite her incompetence in others ways, Hillary Clinton is audacious.

385 It’s okay to grieve. Seriously, it’s okay shed a tear, say a prayer, hug your children, light a candle, take at least a couple of hours and allow yourself to feel. Feel heartbroken, feel enraged, feel empty. Just feel something except an immediate need to figure out how this latest tragedy can help you make a political point.
