The Morning Report — 6/23/22

stopjapcorn.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and I'm sure you're all relieved to know that the massive amnesty sellout that John Cornyn has been promising is all a giant misunderstanding. No, really!

As the Senate voted to advance gun legislation on Tuesday night, which arose from Cornyn’s negotiations with Democrats, Cornyn told Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA), “First guns, now it’s immigration.”

In response to Cornyn’s comment, Sinema said, “That’s right, we’re going to do it.”

The comment drew swift backlash from former Trump administration officials such as Andrew Surabian, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA), and House Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks (IN).

“From selling out on gun control to selling out on amnesty in light speed,” Surabian said. . .

. . . After the backlash, Cornyn claimed that he was merely joking and that no immigration talks are expected to occur.

“The Democrats and their allies in the media really can’t take a joke. There’s no secret amnesty bill,” Cornyn told Breitbart News on Wednesday morning. His office confirmed to Breitbart News that the senator’s remark was made purely in jest.

Despite Cornyn’s claim, the Texas senator has called for negotiations that would provide amnesty for illegal aliens in the past.

That Cornyn. What a cut-up he is! Does he do kids, er, I mean does he do kids parties?! I'm only joking! See, I can be a comedian too. But John Cornyn isn't just a master of refined comedy, he does tragedy like nobody's business. Actually, more like horror:

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) brushed off NRA opposition to his gun control package Wednesday, noting that the gun rights group cannot be allowed to “veto good public policy.”

Breitbart News reported that the Senate gun control package negotiated by Cornyn, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), and others, was put before the public on Tuesday. . .

. . . The NRA responded to the gun control by saying it “falls short at every level.”

They added, “This legislation can be abused to restrict lawful gun purchases, infringe upon the rights of law-abiding Americans, & use fed dollars to fund gun control measures being adopted by state & local politicians” . . .

. . . Mediaite.com reports that Cornyn spoke to MSNBC Wednesday and said, “We worked with the NRA to listen to their concerns. But in the end I think they simply — they have a membership and a business model that will not allow them to support any legislation. And so I understand where they’re coming from, but I think most people will not allow any outside group to veto good public policy.”

Forget the NRA itself and just focus on its membership and its mission. For the umpteenth frigging time since the sun first burned bright in our solar system, Mr. Cornyn:

WHAT PART OF "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?

Not that I necessarily would own or let alone afford one, but if I wanted to own a 20mm cannon or even a hundred of them, I have the God-given right to do so. I could care fuck-all for the Firearms Control Act of 1934 and every other unconstitutional edict that has come afterward up to and including this travesty. And I don't necessarily care if anyone else owns one either because, after everything I have seen and heard in just the past two years alone, I trust the ordinary American citizen more than I trust this government by a factor that approaches infinity. I'd say "google" but that word has tragically ironic meaning in this case, but I digress.

John Cornyn, like every other slimy tyrannical cancerous worm of this junta, has done us a favor by yet again revealing the illusion of the American two party system, give and take, advise and consent and all the rest we deluded ourselves into believing had been maintained and preserved since 1789. Gone goodbye, probably decades ago but for sure since 1/6/21. The only reason for gun control is to remove all opposition to tyrannical government. Period.

And if you think they're going to stop at this, think again:

Murphy stated, “[F]or 30 years in Washington, the NRA got everything they wanted, and if the NRA opposed a bill, it was essentially dead letter. That’s not the case any longer and that is because, over time, citizens have organized, and especially in the wake of Uvalde, when senators went home, they heard loud and clear from their constituents that this time, doing nothing could not be an option. The fear and the anxiety was just palpable in this country. So, yes, the NRA is opposed to this bill and there are going to be somewhere between 15 and 20 Republican senators that are going to vote for it, which I think sort of paves the way for even more progress in the future, now that we have broken this logjam. That’s maybe the legacy of the bill in the long run.”

"More progress in the future." Progress. Like progressively more odious controls not just on firearms but on speech, access to information, access to capital (the approaching complete collapse of our economy notwithstanding), access to food, access to medical care, access to our children and on and on and on. Now THAT is what I call "progressivism." Progressively enslaving you mind, body and soul. Bit by bit or in one fell swoop.

In the end, though, nothing will change in our political environment. Today, the corrupt corporate media and Democrats will herald the law as breaking a “logjam,” the first gun “safety” law in 30 years. This is untrue. Congress has passed numerous gun laws. Thousands of gun laws and regulations exist in the United States. No right has ever been more regulated. And, in a few days, Democrats will return to accusing Republicans of supporting terrorism and abetting child murder. Senators like Murphy will be back to demanding bans on semi-automatic rifles and arguing for backdoor national registries. Within weeks, if not earlier, the media will tell us that the bill was a mere, tiny, first step in bringing the United States in line with other civilized countries. For one side, the “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act” will be a fleeting win, for the other, an incremental step in a crusade to limit national gun ownership.

In a way, the tyrants don't necessarily need gun control legislation. The greatest gun control that exists is our own side's absolute abhorrence of violence, our tolerance and our strong Judeo-Christian ethic as embodied in the 6th Commandment. Regardless of the restrictions put upon the 2-A, the fact remains that nearly perhaps as much as two thirds of this country, some 220 million people, are legally armed to the teeth and have acted accordingly and responsibly in keeping and bearing arms. Yet at what point are those 220 million of us going to "Break Glass, Pull Handle" as it were?

No, Moloch Garland, I am not here calling for armed insurrection, though all things considered, the reasons that led to Lexington and Concord were far less egregious than the depredations we have endured so far. And they're only going to get worse. The very ethics, morality and Christian charity that courses through our hearts and minds inures us to such an extent to the slings and arrows as to almost be an Achilles heel. Really, how much more of this are we going to have to endure before someone or all of us collectively shout enough and take to heart the H.L. Mencken quote that Ace has at the top of the masthead of this site?

Maybe it's logistics, or maybe we're just not there yet.

Last Tuesday, BlazeTV host Steve Deace tweeted a harrowing message from a “January Sixther” that demonstrates how far what is happening regarding Jan. 6 really is from actual justice, and shows that it is all a dirty political game in which Democrats are victimizing decent people in order to prop up their ridiculous and baseless “insurrection” narrative.

“I am a husband and father who has zero criminal history,” this man wrote to Deace, “and I am looking at years in prison AFTER I took a plea. You may ask why would people take a plea if they are innocent? Innocent has nothing to do with this as my lawyer has told over and over again. This is payback. There are only a handful of representatives in DC that care about us. The vast majority couldn’t care less.”

The man explains: “I wasn’t violent, I didn’t break anything, I didn’t steal anything and that doesn’t matter. I lost my 6 figure income, friends, and my family is a wreck. I had the FBI in my home, I was brought before a judge in shackles. And I am a lucky one. I got to remain free till sentencing. So this is the country that I now live in. Where the powerful few can attack an elected president attempting to removing him for 4 years and where elections no longer matter.”

This is from a person who was unarmed, non-violent and merely showed up to DC to exercise his First Amendment right to free speech as a means of redressing grievance of his government. In this context, the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse looms large. At least, it would loom large if we had a just and stable law with political leaders who had the morals and ethics to abide by them.

We do not. And so, all bets are off. Dark days, my friends. Dark days.

16 The removal is part of an effort at the FDA under [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Joe Biden to reduce nicotine consumption and nicotine levels in U.S. products. The agency announced in June it will also develop a proposed rule to establish a maximum nicotine level in cigarettes and other tobacco products." (but pot should be legalized, right? - jjs)

Next they will be going for sugar and fat content in packaged foods. Forget the mandatory labels, they will just issue out dictates. Because with the FDA's back-to-back malevolent actions (mRNA endorsement and baby formula) we should trust these hate-filled Malthusians even more on issues relating to our health.

You cut the nicotine level in cigarettes and people will just smoke more, resulting in the states receiving a windfall in tax dollars.

OR:

People will head down to Ye Olde Vape shop, buy a vape pen and recharge fluid with a high nicotine level and quit smoking resulting in a near 100% loss of tax dollars.

Cornyn laughed in everyone's face who had material opposition to his proposal. It will undoubtedly be weaponized by Democrats to subvert our Second Amendment and due process rights. When that happens, and it will, these Republicans will do nothing. He wasn't kidding about immigration. They are serious and this is exactly what your up against, lying, two faced, traitorous, sell out who don't care what the voters think. In fact, this part of their declaration of war against you.

Its the most remarkable thing - the generic polls on Republican vs Democrats point to a historic defeat of Dems in November - and yet in most of the races in Wi, Penn, Mich, GA, NY, NH, MA, CT, MD, NC, TX etc etc - where a Republican is either the Republican is the incumbent, or the Dem is a lefty loon who supports the current Punchy administration or is running their state into bankruptcy and misery, the Dem polls ahead of the Republican or is about close to unseating them.

Its as if everyone acknowledges that the Dems are going to get their asses handed to them - just not anywhere anyone can point to...

The political class hates, hates, hates it when the common people find out what it is they actually do in the capitol city.

He was under the impression that if he supported the junta's coup d' etat and the elevation of the Regulatory State over Congress, that he could do whatever he wanted and no one would care.

What I don't get is why the Murk would join in with him...her vote was not needed and she's facing a jungle primary in AK. And AK does not contain enough Dems to build an igloo, much less cross over and lead her to victory. You don't own a gun in AK, you're called food.

Enacting new laws isn't going to cut it. Trying to hold a different class of people responsible for their actions isn't going to cut it either.

Two. Have had three generations. Fantastic dogs, easy to train, love children, and with one exception (in my dog group over time), not aggressive. Love them.

These descriptions are only true though if owners give their dogs lots of outdoor exercise, especially daily runs off leash. Too often, people buy a Vizsla for their looks not realizing the dog gets destructive if they do not get exercise, and will dig up your lawn, or chew furniture legs. This is not a dog for a sedentary lifestyle.

In all of these, the Gov and/or senate races are close or Dem is winning - the most disappointing being the GA race for senate and the PA races for Gov and senate.

Honestly, that doesn't come as a surprise. Right now, families are struggling to put food on the table and afford the gasoline to go to the job that pays for the food on the table.

Gun control is naturally way down the list. However, it honestly wouldn't be that hard to use gun control as a wedge issue, though. All a politician has to say is, "With everything that's going on, we're talking about gun control?" That would probably be enough to kill gun control in its tracks.

Conducting peaceful protest and marches in front of wherever J6’ers are being held, not rage stroking about what a mostly useless political party should do but won’t, we might effect some change. We freedom loving people don’t do anything for J6’ers so why would we expect Republicans to do anything? If they won’t lead, we should.

Posted by: Dave in Fla at June 23, 2022 08:46 AM (5p7BC)"

There is no stomach for an outright ban and before the last one expired it was about to be struck down. So the game liberals have played is to chip away at that right by using the administrative state, bottling it up in the courts for years and gaining control of agencies like the ATF to go after FFL's. People know that. Gun owners know that. Especially with the surge in gun ownership. These tactics are frustrating to gun owners as they are plainly unconstitutional. I don't see how that plays well in public opinion. That's before we get to the fact that with everything else going on, this is what Republicans work on. Well that and giving billions to Ukraine and phony infrastructure. It's all taking a big bite out of peoples trust for them. Rightly.

PA proves candidates matter, even in a wave year. Oz is a nut job, I think either Barret or the vanilla GOP candidate would have won. But the Dems will hang all of Oz's weird interviews with Oprah, etc., around his neck, and the Dems always do the Biden thing of pretending they are moderate until they get in office.

The GOP has no confidence in their plans - if you can even find an articulated plan. Note how Biden brags that he has a Plan for this and a Plan for that, when the entire planet knows he has no plans, just random fiats and useless gestures.

The American people are so damned stupid and lazy that just saying "I have a plan" results in an increase of confidence and an uptick in approval rating. Why the GOP can't come out and at least utter the magic phrase is beyond me. It seems that they go to the anti-school of politics.

There is a method for getting rid of the 2nd amendment, and that is through a constitutional amendment process. You never, and I mean never, hear any gun grabber suggest that as the way forward.
Not only would it erase any doubt about where the American people stand on the issue, it would make these fund raising fights moot.

No, the insidious reason for not even trying to amend the constitution is that they've been successfully infringing on the 2nd amendment for over a century, while still being able to point to the worthless document and say it still exists.

There's credible threats to jurists and every day without the landmark decisions handed out ramp up the rhetoric and potential threats.
But no, we have to have you stay tuned to the last episode, to see the fantastic conclusion, or a cliffhanger.

357 When the "red wave" fails to materialize due to fraud the narrative will be more along the lines of; "the people have spoken and they do not want Republicans in power." The right will be painted in most negative light possible... insurrectionists, racists, etc.

The mid-terms regardless how they may shake out will be the last elections held. The uniparty has discovered they can pretty much do whatever they want and there are no consequences for that. There never will be either.

362 The Kremlin is failing to deter the family members of sailors that survived the sinking of the Moskva from issuing an appeal against the deployment of surviving conscripts to the war in Ukraine as of June 20. Russian opposition outlet Novaya Gazeta published an appeal from the parents of the surviving 49 conscript crewmembers of the Moskva, demanding that the Military Prosecutor's Office in Sevastopol, the Committee of Soldier's Mothers, and the Human Rights Commissioner immediately terminate the crewmembers' deployment. The appeal states that Russian commanders did not send the surviving conscripts home from their deployment following the sinking of Moskva and that they will be recommitted to hostilities on June 30. The appeal noted that the survivors refuse to participate in further assignments due to psychological distress and are currently stationed on the old ship Ladnyi, which the appeal claims is unfit for combat. The Ukrainian Military Intelligence Directorate (GUR) previously reported that Russian forces have threatened the families of Moskva sailors with criminal prosecution and nullification of any financial benefits to prevent them from speaking out against Russian ops.

363 ISW has previously assessed that Russian units in eastern Ukraine are suffering from poor complements of infantry, slowing their ability to seize urban terrain. The Russian military is offering substantial financial incentives to secure additional recruits with increasing disregard for their age, health, criminal records, and other established service qualifications. The Ukrainian General Staff reported on June 21 that Russian Airborne (VDV) units are forced to recruit reserve officers for short-term three-month contracts due to significant officer losses, and the BBC reported that the Russian Ministry of Defense is offering to pay off the loans and debts of volunteers to entice recruits.

An internet search says it's being released via The Daily Wire:

Oddly enough (or not), when I did a Bing search for this, autocomplete seemed to do its best to not point at this movie.

366 Many years ago I did a deep dive on the 2nd Amendment and came to these conclusions:

a) The 2nd Amendment is the “Middle Ground”, and the middle ground is a desirable objective because it has a good chance of being a “stable” solution (i.e., the polar opposite boundary of ‘no citizen can own a gun’ is not the 2nd Amendment, it is 'all citizens must own a gun').

b) It is illogical to include 'People' in the amendment, if the amendment does not apply to 'People' (e.g., none of the other amendments explicitly include a party that is not covered by the amendment).

367 Many years ago I did a deep dive on the 2nd Amendment and came to these 3 conclusions:

a) The 2nd Amendment is the “Middle Ground”, and the middle ground is a desirable objective because it has a good chance of being a “stable” solution (i.e., the polar opposite boundary of ‘no citizen can own a gun’ is not the 2nd Amendment, it is 'all citizens must own a gun').

b) It is illogical to include 'People' in the amendment, if the amendment does not apply to 'People' (e.g., none of the other amendments explicitly include a party that is not covered by the amendment).

c) It is illogical to conclude in this amendment the word "right" does not apply to the party explicitly noted, when the word "right" does apply to the party explicitly noted in the other amendments. (e.g., 7 other amendments explicitly define a party that is covered by the amendment, none of the other amendments have this logic contradiction).

And people say we can't get things done in this country anymore!

370 Re: California legalizing prostitution...

I'll never understand my political allies on the conservative side of things selective understanding of how well prohibitions work in America.

I can cite sources, gang: if you want MORE of something that people want, and you want to lose complete control of it, then make it illegal. Volstead, War on Drugs, etc. Furthermore, if you want something to be completely uncontrolled and unregulated, then ban it. When alcohol is legal, you can set a legal drinking age, etc. When it's illegal? Well, there's nothing you can do.

Legalizing prostitution is the best way to make sure that people aren't being sex trafficked. It's going to happen, either way, but if it's legal, you get some control over it and oversight.

How are we all missing this? How have we not learned this lesson at this point?
