The Morning Report — 6/22/22

cornpwn3d.jpg

Good morning, kids. Wednesday and is it just me or does it seem as if we have absolutely zero representation in government? Meh, why even ask that question when I have been asserting since January 6th, 2021 that we no longer even have a government. Our lives and everything we've worked for and played by the rules to build, achieve and try to leave as a legacy for our children is being destroyed and stolen by politicians who embody the perfect storm of zero morality, zero empathy, and most dangerous of all, essentially zero accountability in legal or political terms.

I don't need to go into the motivations of the tyrannical evil that is the Democrat-Left. To paraphrase that old song, "If you don't know them by now," etc. And then, there's the GOP.

GUARDIANS OF PROGRESSIVISM

I don't know why I'm getting so worked up. After years and years of hearing them bitch and moan about being one third of three fifths of one half of 99 44/100ths percent of government, and donate more to to the RNC and renew your National Review subscriptions, we finally give them all of it in 2016 and they stab us in the chest.

No, they are not "the stupid party" because they're not stupid. They're not even a political party. They are part and parcel of the anti-American criminal enterprise that is hell bent for leather on our destruction and enslavement.

They hate you. They resent you. They resent having to pretend to like you or give two shits about your concerns to fool you into voting for them and donating to their campaigns. Funny how some of the loudest voices talking about things like "disinformation" on a whole range of subjects are RINOs. Check that; it's the RINOs that are absolutely silent when their own voters are assaulted, persecuted and censored by the Democrat-Left when we attempt to exercise our rights and freedoms.

Worst of all are the RINOs that are in solidly red states who know they have you by the short hairs every two or six years because it's almost impossible to primary them and failing that you'll hold your nose and pull that lever rather than risk having a Democrat. Since the end of World War Two, the trajectory of this nation has been steadily off a cliff. The only difference was that the GOP was in a Model A while the Democrats were in a Lamborghini.

Case in point is John Cornyn. After being greeted by an auditorium of jeers, boos and catcalls for his eagerness to join the Democrats (I use the word "join" as a placeholder since he never was separate from them) to grab our guns, and with Texas about to be swamped by a fresh invasion of hundreds of thousands if not millions more illegal aliens, both resulting in an indigenous Latino population fleeing Democrats, what does John Cornyn do?

After Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tapped Cornyn to negotiate a deal on gun control, he now promised to move forward on a deal on amnesty.

“First guns, now it’s immigration,” Cornyn told Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA).

“That’s right, we’re going to do it,” said Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). 

Andrew Surabian, a former Donald Trump administration official, said in reaction to Cornyn’s pledge for amesty, “From selling out on gun control to selling out on amnesty in light speed”. . .

. . . Cornyn was recently booed at the Texas annual Republican Party convention last Friday over his work with Democrats to pass gun control.

The boos apparently did not faze Cornyn.

“After Sen @JohnCornyn was met with such hatred at the @TexasGOP convention in Houston, I’m told he said to a few people, ‘I’ve never given in to mobs and I’m not starting today,’” Cornyn’s retweet read.

As Gordon Lightfoot once crooned, "If you could read my mind, love, what a tale my thoughts would tell, I'd rip John Cornyn's melon head off, and kick his bony ass straight to hell. . ."

I added that last part. And here's what John Cornyn and his ilk have wrought in the wake of a mass shooting perpetrated by a mind poisoned by years of Leftist cultural rot, aided and abetted by the abject cowardice and incompetence of local law enforcement.

Many of us have been worried about Republicans yielding to the Democrats even a little on gun legislation, and for good reason. The Democrats aren’t known for being satisfied once the GOP acquiesces on any issue. Republicans are Charlie Brown and the Dems are Lucy with the football every time something like this happens.

The Republican squishes never stop falling for it.

There are two HUGE problems with this legislation, especially for conservatives: it legitimizes both federal intervention in state matters and “red flag” laws. The latter is particularly problematic because implementation is rife with gray areas, no matter how many stipulations are in place. As I have been fond of saying, once red-flag laws are on the books, we’re on the most slippery of slippery slopes. One day people are raising legitimate concerns, the next we have people reporting the neighbor who just rubs them the wrong way.

From Andrea Widburg at American Thinker:

At a first hasty glance, it does seem as if the Republicans at least tried to insert some protections. (Caveat: The problem with quickly reading these bills isn’t just that they’re long. They are also written to amend a multitude of existing statutes. That means that, if you really want to understand a proposed bill, you must read the other laws to which the bill refers. I have not done so.) . . .

. . . Will the above language protect people’s Second Amendment rights? The proof of this pudding will be in the eating. I suspect many people hit with a red flag law complaint will be unable to obtain counsel—and the government’s not going to help. Without a lawyer to assert those rights, they may as well not exist. Also, these will be hasty proceedings with judges terrified of possibly letting a future shooter go. Despite the protections, the bias will be to seize weapons—and then, good luck to the citizen trying to get them back later. . .

. . . I’m inclined to believe that our mental health and violent problems stem from a broken culture that sees politicians, the media, and educators encourage racial hatred; flood the country with illegal aliens, who bring with them illegal drugs, guns, and sex traffickers; destroy the economy; create a culture of death with unlimited abortions; legalize marijuana, a drug strongly associated with psychosis and violence; ignore existing laws, including those against illegal guns and gun crime; and sow confusion about biological sex.

All these things break a culture and broken cultures produce broken, violent people. No additional mental health funding or red flag laws will change that.

John Cornyn and the GOP wing of the Democrat-Leftist Junta want to take your guns away for one reason only: to leave you defenseless against them. Period, full stop. And if they can't take your guns away, John Cornyn and the GOP wing of the Democrat-Leftist Junta want amnesty and open borders so they have safety in numbers, and to replace us with a citizenry more amenable to their control.

I can't see how illegals will do the jobs Americans refuse to do when there are no jobs because we will have been completely de-industrialized and our economy totally destroyed within the next five years if not sooner.

John Cornyn. Thank you and fuck you. Go die in a fire and take the GOP with you.

And the trophy-toss during the boat parade after winning the Covid Super Bowl with Tampa Bay, also legend. That was in the middle of Heavy D defying the junta on 'ro-restrictions, and all those guys out in boats drinking beer and tossin' trophies with thousands of unmasked, non-social-distanced fans cheering them on was a real bright spot in a dark winter.

Retire in Peace, Gronk!

The fact that we are under a Without Rule Of Law scenario, gross immorality, and unstoppable debt spending should be the signs of a completely failed State.

We can no longer feed, clothe, medicate, house or educate ourselves; that is where infants and the terminally ill and elderly find themselves. This nation isn't in an infancy stage so that leaves only the alternatives.

The GOP have done nothing for the last two years as the Dems have destroyed our economy, betrayed our allies, dragged us into a war that isn't any of our business and held peaceful American citizens in jail without charges or access to counsel. And yet, somehow, in spite of all that, we're supposed to vote for those nickelfuckers because of the hoary cliche "the Dems are worse."

Really? How much worse can they be? Look around you and tell yourself that 'voting' for a parcel of treasonous, feckless mountebanks is going to improve your life or the country's position one jot.

This is partly the problem in SC too. It's why Lindsay Graham (R-POS) can't be ousted. Along with his enormous war chest, along with his name recognition, there are also a multitude of challengers at primary season who dilute the vote and honestly don't have the money to blanket the state.

I'm currently reading 'Red Horizons.' About Ceaucescu's time in office. Specifically related to this, they were planning to implement a mass, countrywide surveillance system on the Romanian population. Bugging every phone by mandating a certain phone model be installed in everyone's home...ones that had mini, hypersensitive microphones that could pick up conversations in other rooms, as well as record ongoing calls. Monitored centrally at all times with the push of a button. Those rural folks who didn't have phones would be surveilled by other means. They were absolutely giddy about the prospect. Surveillance is a main component of totalitarians. We're well on our way. Practically there, actually.

182 I'm not voting any longer, a caveat that may render the following Man Yelling at the Clouds. If someone intends to continue to breathe life into their GOP rapists, they should consider limiting voting to House members and boycotting the Senate races altogether. That would leave one branch to keep a check on the Biden Dictatorship (fat chance) and excise the cancers like Cornyn and his corrupt Chinese puppetmaster, McConnell. Let the Democrats win every Republican Senate seat. It's not like they were going to do anything with it.

The old line was you could not complain if you did not vote. The new line is you cannot complain if you continue to vote for the Republican Party.

Next up will be GOP support for a kinder, gentler Green New Deal and possible abortion vouchers to provide transportation to and from Planned Parenthood clinics. If you don't think this is even remotely possible you are not sentinent.

I think Murkowski could be the key to this. If she joins on guns and amnesty that probably kills her reelection since they are now using a jungle primary. She will have to toe a line all the way to November.

233 Welcome to my position on the Republican Party, JJ. They are NOT on our side, nor the side of law or that of the founding republic.
What they do care about is big donor dollars and currying favor with fellow D.C. elites, regardless of the will of their voters.
They did nothing for four years as government officials broke laws and leaked classified information. They did nothing when Democrats stole a huge election, despite mountains of evidence, including video, proving voter fraud was rampant and [as we are recognizing now], coordinated. And they do nothing to limit the irrepairable damage being done to the nation via the illegitimate Biden administration.
Because of all this and more not addressed here (their war against the Tea Party, for instance), I will not be casting a vote for them in 2022.
They are duplicit and complicit with the overthrow of our national identity and destruction of true representative government. Their political party deserves to die. I'm not voting to keep this cabal of grifters and lobby whores on life support, simply because they bellow that the alternative is worse.

234 The thing about "voting" is that most people look to their elected and potentially elected representatives as some sort of religious savior that will magically "make things better" for them. I'm sure that description will torque off some here, but it is in fact how a lot of people look at the political process.

For the Democrat Party politics has replaced religion. And Democrats are very, very passionate about their new religion. Zealous even.

245 In Virginia, the Fairfax County School Board has decided that suspension is the appropriate punishment for "malicious misgendering" and "malicious deadnaming." In classrooms as early as the fourth grade, if students use the wrong pronoun or wrong name when referring to a classmate, they will be forced to miss valuable school days by a school board that thinks it has the right to control what students say.

This is not an issue limited to northern Virginia. In Kiel, Wisconsin, a school district opened up a sexual harassment investigation into three eighth graders who "misgendered" a classmate. Those students referred to a classmate as a girl rather than the grammatically incorrect 'they/them" pronouns the student demanded to be referred to with. The school district sought to destroy those three students for not speaking the way the district demanded.

Exactly. If they could vote secretly, north of 45 of the Senate Republicans would vote to outlaw all guns and codify Roe v. Wade. And take note, even though they cynically decided to not use any Republicans up for re-election to push through these Red Flag laws (that's where the action is and what will be used for confiscation eventually), they are being fairly transparent with their "fuck yous." I live in a state with two Republican senators, neither up for re-election, but if one were I would cross over and vote for the Democrat. Time to put this bullshit down.

Well, what we're seeing is for lack of a better word, "Senate Comradery".

People like Cornyn and McConnell don't want to see their good ole pals tossed out. So, they're giving them some solid Democrat wins to take back to their voters and give them a reason to vote for them in a now diminished red wave.

Are they more concerned with their buddies or the Constitution and their voters?

Why their buddies, of course. And you're not part of the country club, so shut up.

It's no more complicated than that.

The real test is the military. If they invade a red state to grab legal guns, then it it CW2

310 >>> Reading this morning that one of the Uvalde school police officers received a call from his wife - who was one of the teachers that was shot. She called to tell him she was dying. This police officer started to move to go in and do what needed to be done.

His "brothers in arms" restrained him and took away his weapons.

I don't know this to be true, but I suspect this is the officer who died of a broken heart a couple days later.

There was a plan and nothing was allowed to interfere.

Not a single one of the dozens upon dozens of events and actions and simple happenstances that would have prevented the convenient slaughter propaganda for the following convention and the now completed rape of the 2nd amendment were allowed. Parents trying to save their kids, doors that were always unlocked, heavily armored police there only to protect, facilitate, and spot targets for the shooter by getting them to call out.

Every single threat to the shooter was systematically identified and eliminated until they delivered enough blood sacrifice to affect what has now come to place.

Also agree - it's becoming clear now how this congressional term is playing out. Schumer spent the first 18 months thinking he could push through prog fantasy bills, which all failed. Now, recognizing where things are headed, the Uniparty reps (men like Cornyn, both D and R) are reasserting themselves and telling the progs that they have only got 6 months left to push through all of the Uniparty goals, like amnesty and red flag laws. They all know that once the the new House is seated, all of these things will be off the table.

Lithuania says "hey, don't blame us, blame the EU" and NATO says "hey, they are in NATO so don't use military force" to make Lithuania obey it's treaty obligations to Russia.

This is going to turn into a hot war between NATO and Russia. Because of steel shipments from Russia to a Russian territory.

Hey, those gulags, concentration camps, and crematoria aren't gonna operate themselves, you know?

As far back as 1999, I made a joke at work to my boss (a female conservative) in response to something she said -- "good thing I'm packing" -- and a commie bitch coworker who overheard me went to HR demanding I be fired for creating "an unsafe work environment."

As I was called on the carpet and began receiving the condescending, kindergarten-level lecture on my "unacceptable behavior" -- I just stood up, told them to go fuck themeselves, and resigned. I was more valuable to that company than 20 of those commie losers, and told them so. Left the Bay Area and never returned ...

Point being now, with red-flag laws, there's a chance I'd get 4:00am SWATTED and have my firearms forcibly removed -- or die trying to defend them -- in a similar situation.

I agree - they're just trying to toss in whatever they can as the palace crumbles, because they know they can get away with it. I firmly believe we will be in a full-blown economic collapse, not just a recession, by the time November rolls around, and that is going to dominate everything.

btw - Biden is out there talking about suspending the gas tax. At least most are calling it a bad idea, but I haven't seen anyone yet point out exactly why. And that is because cutting the Federal Gas Tax cuts revenue without stopping any spending, which means more money must be created, which means inflation will increase, which means gas prices will go up far more than the relief from the gas tax. So, cutting the gas tax will make gas cost *more*, not less. That's why it is such an idiotic idea.

So much for price discovery.

They are doing similar things around the former West. After decades of manipulating the energy market towards total destruction through subsidies for weather based energy and punitive regulation, taxes and lawfare against reliable thermals, they are now subsidizing the very same industries they demonized the week before.

My prediction of the next 10 years is that those areas which have sensible local control will find a way to thrive and continue to benefit from the influx of refugees from the collapsing areas. Those places which continue down the prog path (the West Coast, most major northern cities) are going to spiral down into complete social and economic collapse, which no one will be able to stop. Many of the people there now will die. There will be no significant action by the Federal Level, because it is going to slide into incompetent irrelevance as it's financial base evaporates.

404 @364 Jonah-unfortunately opening up Keystone XL without expanding refining capacity for sweet/light crude AND turning up our own oil extracting production won’t do much for prices. Most of that oil from Canada would go out in the open market to other countries. Might lower price per barrel a little but unlikely. The key is expanding our refining capacity(refineries spec’d to refine sweet/light and sour/heavy) at all existing refineries and build new ones.

452 In response to your comment:

"(may it happen here too, inshalla - jjs)" ...

jjs, the word "inshalla" invokes "allah," the god of Muslims. Different gods make different followers. Hence Islam's daily record of rape, terrorism, murder and slavery. The equivalent term, invoking the Biblical G-d, is "Deo volente" (G-d willing), used for centuries, often abbreviated DV. Please don't call on allah.
