The Morning Report — 9/19/22

adamsgrootboot.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a new week and the Left continues to go absolutely apeshit over Ron DeSantis' genius move of shipping illegal aliens to one of the deepest, bluest hearts of leftist darkness in the country. And one of the wealthiest. Martha's Vineyard is home, that is a second, third or even fourth home, to many of this nation's most powerful politicians, business people and media/culture figures. You can bet your bottom dollar (pun intended since that's where it is) that virtually all of them back open borders and shriek "no one is illegal!" louder than anyone, which is ironic in the extreme given the rush to eject 50 hapless brown-skinned aliens who were enticed by these very people to jump the border in the first place.

Don't get me wrong; the residents of Martha's Vineyard, which for all intents and purposes is a suburb of DC and Davos, still want open borders and a human wave of millions of essentially illiterate third world peasantry to flood in and swamp the last vestiges of American society and cultural identity. But the want them to settle in and destroy red state America. What DeSantis has done in this move is expose the ugly, naked hypocrisy of the left both in terms of politics and policy as well as truly repugnant racism — the very thing they have been smearing and sliming us and our nation in order to gain and maintain political power for decades.

It's sort of a microcosm of what I consider President Trump's greatest achievement; the exposing of the Democrat-left's incompetence and hypocrisy not just with words (he is every bit a great communicator in his way as was Reagan) but more importantly with deeds. As CBD and I discussed in the latest episode of the podcast, his economic miracle liberated, at least for a short while, the very core constituencies that the Democrats have been sucking the life out of, alternately wooing them with walk around money and scaring them that whitey/Republicans will "put y'all back in chains" if you vote for them. In the event, blacks, Latinos and every other minority that perpetually votes "D" (or has their ballots checked off "D" even if they don't) enjoyed record levels of employment, increased wages and were ditching the welfare and food stamp rolls like mad. Trump himself on a campaign stop pointed out the helplessness and hopelessness, cut through the Democrat racist bullshit and got to the heart of the matter by stating what that party had done to them, asking "what have you got to lose" by voting for me? Boom.

The estimable Roger Kimball nails the radiant chutz-pocrisy coming from Martha's Hole (Momma Sefton's spoonerism, confusing it and Woods Hole from whence you catch the ferry):

The reaction of the loving, open, soft-palmed, Democrat-voting residents? “The horror, the horror”: Mr. Kurtz’s expostulation at the end of Conrad’s Heart of Darkness about sums it up. 

Floundering Florida pol Charlie Crist said that DeSantis’ action “shocks the conscience of any fair-minded human being.” Hillary Clinton said that it was an example of “human trafficking,” while other talking heads decried it as pure “evil.” Documentary filmmaker and anti-American propagandist Ken Burns has just made a film about the Holocaust that explains how the murder of 6 million Jews by the Nazis was, at bottom, if you look at it the right (i.e., the Left) way, the fault of America. Interviewed just as the story about the migrants-come-to-Martha’s-Vineyard was breaking, Burns said that DeSantis, by sending illegal immigrant to Martha’s Vineyard, had taken a page from that “authoritarian playbook” and was “weaponizing human beings for a political purpose” just as you-know-who had done in World War II. 

Surreal, isn’t it?

Meanwhile, Gavin Newsom, governor of the failing state of California, wrote to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland asking him to look into kidnapping charges for those involved in DeSantis’ gift to Martha’s Vineyard. (Newsom did not mention his own habit of shipping homeless people out of San Francisco with “one-way tickets.") The Babylon Bee was on the case with a story explaining, “Migrants Decline Newsom’s Offer Of Asylum In CA Since They Just Came From A Collapsing Communist Hellhole With No Electricity.”

The outcry was partly amusing, partly malevolent, as Tucker Carlson showed with his customary aplomb. NBC News took to Twitter to quote a “founding member of a foundation which helps refugees” who said that DeSantis sending “asylum seekers” to Martha’s Vineyard is like “me taking my trash out and just driving to different areas where I live and just throwing my trash there.” Trash? . . .

. . . In a single stroke, Ron DeSantis tore the mask of hypocrisy off the smug faces of the liberal elites who love crowing about the virtues of “diversity” and the evils of “whiteness” just so long as they don’t have to suffer any real-world consequences.

Bingo. DeSantis is not backing down and in fact has threatened, and really from his track record you can say promised, to double down. The comparison to the Shoah just shows how absolutely exposed the left have been. And Martha's Vineyard is DeSantis' way of upping the ante. He, as well as Texas' Governor Greg Abbott, suffering an intentionally erased border in their home states and the Junta in DC flying planeloads of illegals all over the country under cover of darkness — including Florida — and having no authority (Constitutional eagles please correct me if I am mistaken) to round them up and ship them back across the Rio Grande, sent them to places where "no one is illegal": the so-called sanctuary cities and states.

In my former hometown, the Rotting Apple, party boy leftist Eric Adams was voted in to fix what DeBolshevik wrought, which as those with half a Biden brain knew was the equivalent of changing deck chairs on the Titanic. He's fixed absolutely nothing. If you want to be charitable, you can say he's somewhat powerless given the Leftist machine in City Hall and in Albany have the real power. But, he's a fellow traveler for sure (big fan boy of Calypso Louis FarraKKKahn, and a racialist to the core) and wasn't about to suddenly turn into an acolyte of Rudy Giuliani. Instead, he rails against the usual suspects while proposing anything and everything wrong to fix a problem that he himself has embraced.

New York City shelters are so overwhelmed by the migrant crisis that Mayor Eric Adams is considering using cruise ships as temporary housing.

“We examined everything from the legality of using any type of cruise ship for temporary housing,” Hizzoner during an interview on WCBS Sunday.

“We’re looking at everything to see, how do we deal with this?”

Adams made the suggestion just hours before The Post reported that a record number of 9 buses carrying migrants traveled into the city.

Each bus typically carries between 40 and 50 migrants.

It's not how you play the game, it's how you place the blame.

The mayor of New York City blamed Republican governors for what he called an “American crisis” and “humanitarian crisis” in the sanctuary city as it grapples with migrants arriving from Texas. . .

. . . “These migrants and asylum seekers are not coming to any particular city, they’re coming to America,” the mayor asserted, adding, “This is an American crisis that we need to face – a humanitarian crisis that were made by human hands by some of the governors in our southern states. . .” 

. . . [ABC's Jonathan] Karl asked Adams whether he thought New York’s sanctuary policies might be attracting illegal border crossers, to which Adams replied, “No, not at all.” 

No, of course not! It's the fault of white cracker-bastard red state governors who refuse to turn America into a third world shit hole and thereby give Democrat-Leftists absolute power forever. Part of me thinks (that is, hopes and prays) that most Americans, including blacks, Latinos and actual LEGAL immigrants and naturalized citizens who came here the right way because they wanted to flee a third world shit hole instead of turning their new homeland into something even worse than where they came from, see what is going on and reject the rank hypocrisy and lies from the pie-holes of Adams et al.

I think they do. The numbers of formerly solid Dem constituents fleeing the destruction of that party since the Vegetable-in-Chief was installed are growing day by day. Instead of cruise ships or as Chubby Gillibrand and Lori Groot-foot are doing, shipping the illegals to non Democrat parts of their city and state, maybe if they rejected open borders and called for the hiring of 87,000 DHS and INS agents to round up every single illegal alien in this country and ship them back, cut them off from Tio Azucar and ended bilingualism, as well as an immigration moratorium for at least 20 years with a concomitant ramping up of carrots and sticks to ensure ASSIMILATION, they might try that.

Meh, if my aunt had a beard, she'd be my uncle. Well, in this day and age . . .

* * * * *

Can you believe it's been six years? Time flies when your head is exploding every morning. Seriously, I just want to express my gratitude to all of you for the love and support. And a big thank you to Ace and all of the cobs for the opportunity.

And now the schneurer appeal, if at all possible, please hit the tip jars both here and at CJN. It helps keeps the lights on and keep us going.

34 Just go back to basics on the illegals. A simple law, less than a page stating anybody employing a person in the country will be fined $X for every hour every illegal is employed, and be subject to fines of a minimum $10,000 for every legal applicant that was rejected for employment due to hiring an illegal. Should be able to do it at the state level.

To a point, and they will say this for political purposes, but it isn't quite right. The "Red America" and "Blue America" is a false dichotomy as far as the ruling class' motivations. It's a real distinction in the everyday world of rubes and suckers because they live it, but it is irrelevant to the ruling class except for relative power differentials.

What the ruling class actually cares about - and it's what the MV affair has exposed more broadly - is "Me" vs. "Not Me." Those illegals have to be dumped in non-elite areas, not "Red" areas. And they will be. Most of those 50 are probably going to land in poor cities ringing Boston proper, and it's about as blue as it gets. But it's not *elite* and so the elites are fine with it.

68 “We Warned You About Ken Burns Misusing The Holocaust. Martha’s Vineyard Is Auschwitz?”

So illegal migrants crossing over from Mexico are Holocaust Survivors and Martha’s Vineyard is Auschwitz?

We said it days ago in the column “Beware hidden messages in Ken Burns’ US and the Holocaust.

In it, we expressed concern that his three-part series, running on PBS as of Sunday, Sept. 18, is at once a thorough examination of America’s misbehavior against the Jews during the Holocaust, but also, for Burns, a chance to turn the migrants into Jews, Trump into Hitler, and Republicans into Nazis…foremost, Texas governor Greg Abbott, and, by way of Texas, Florida governor Ron DeSantis.

Not just a crime, but a capital crime. Pirates aren't even entitled to a trial. You can give them one if you want, but they can also simply be executed out of hand.

I remember a few years back when some Greenpeace freaks commandeered a Russian oil rig that was in transit.

The Russians threw them in jail and charged them with piracy, which was a totally legitimate charge. You take over a vessel on the high seas without a valid letter of marque, you're a pirate.

I think they kept them in jail for about a year before cutting them loose. I remember reading an interview with one of them where he was whining about how bad Russian jail sucked. Yeah, Einstein... and exactly what made you think that Russian jail wasn't going to suck?

Yep. Or if they have their own vessel, you can just sink it and leave them for the sharks.

There are a lot of Somali pirate videos on YouTube... the US and the UK tend to take them into custody. The Russians just sink them.

I've often thought that there's probably a business opportunity in offering pirate-hunting cruises. Charge some good ol' boys a few thousand bucks for a trip off the coast of Somalia, with automatic weapons and rocket launchers included in the tab.

136 Some polling info from the weekend. Quality polling (unlike Marquette) that is at the raw results stage, but...

Both Nevada and Wisconsin are over.

Laxalt and Lombardo will win in Nevada. Trump will win in 2024 easily.

Johnson is going to romp in Wisconsin, he has a sizeable lead and will easily win reelect. Governor is a little less certain, but depends on Johnson's margin. If he wins by 5 or more, Evers will lose.

Those targeted, the proles, the Dirt People, the White working class, they are to be drowned in a sea of invasion and erased from the face of the Earth. Burns inadvertently was onto something although he confused who was behind an actual genocide--the good folks of Martha's Vineyard want to destroy a nation and its people.

It's Alinsky level tactics. This isn't about getting anyone on the left to change; this is about breaking into the consciousness of the LIV's and getting them to realize in a big public way just how rotten this regime already is. As Alinsky put it himself (and other revolutionaries before him) no society will ever accept a massive change in the status quo until the great majority have come to believe that the existing status quo is intolerable, and that anything else would be better. That is what these tactics are aimed at.

Yes, these are dangerous tactics that could go any direction. Revolutionary movements, and revolutionary times, always are.

177 >> Illegals have suing rights. Is there any right they don't have?


Recall how two illegal alien women (might have been underage, too?) sued the US for the "right" to a free abortion after sneaking across the border:

"In the case of 'Jane Poe' in the suit, she was a 17-year-old who sought an abortion in late 2017 for a pregnancy caused by rape in her home country. But the refugee resettlement office’s then-director, Scott Lloyd, a Trump appointee with fierce anti-abortion views, rejected her request. He explained his agency, which provides shelter for 'unaccompanied alien children' who arrive at the border without their caregivers, had a duty to protect 'all the minors in our care, including their unborn children,' and that "we ought to choose [to] protect life rather than to destroy it."

Poe did eventually go through with the procedure after a court granted her motion for a temporary restraining order against the administration’s anti-abortion policy. . .

If you think you're "saving" or "helping" anything it's because you're taking a photograph and drawing a tiny little circle around a small area in a moment frozen in time. You're looking at "no energy used" in terms of it sitting on a pad or some other place, with no consideration of what it is, how it got there, or where it's going.

It had to get to that pad. It has to be monitored, turned, structures built to hold/cover it, tools built and transported to build those structures and turn that mess, etc. You can't just look at that tiny circle you drew and say "Yay green!"

At best you're breaking even, and you're burning oil and manpower to do break even (which isn't breaking even). But if you're honest you're not even breaking even.

202 It IS theater on both sides. I wasn't a fan in the beginning because it was overall giving the left what it wants: Destruction of the sovereignty of the United States. It's just spreading illegals around making it harder to control them and remove them when a sane administration come back into power.

That being said, the way the left is melting down over actually having to deal with the policies they've put in place is POPCORN, baby.

As a Marine Infantry Officer I was struck stupid that an SF guy has so little situational awareness. My guess is the SFer has a nice deposit in his bank account. That said, I had to ask myself 'why is the NFL attempting to reintroduce Krapernick now?' You would think the $40M Nike paid him would have been enough. Evidently, this is not so.

Have you forgotten that nationwide injunction against Trump's travel ban because his tweets, (before he was president!) were admitted as evidence the entirely legal order was possibly racist and therefore illegal?

259 From the American Greatness link on Detroit (Coolidge speech):

It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. . . Those who wish to proceed in that direction cannot lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers.

To which I would add: curse nearly every putrid, purulent, power-hungry toad that crawls the halls of congress today, for their credo is the antithesis of Coolidge's speech.

Another will be the documentation is illegal... crossing state lines or some such bullshit.

276 >> LOL, the "biden administration" is walking back joe biden's comment that the pandemic is over. They are literally claiming that what he said is not the official position of the administration.

A big problem with this is Biden used the virus emergency status to try and ram through his very unpopular and idiotic student loan forgiveness. If there is no emergency there is even less justification for this plan.

This is why they keep Biden locked in the basement. His brain is mush and every time he gives and unscripted interview he steps all over his dick.

It's not going to get to court. They haven't started working on a mechanism to "forgive" those loans.

You click a link on it and it takes you to the public service and teacher forgiveness programs, nothing about biden's EO.

312 ... It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. . . Those who wish to proceed in that direction cannot lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers. ...

Having said that, I am sick and tired of King Charles, the walking dumpster fire of Wokeness, and especially Harry and Megan. The King has already proven himself weak in allowing the funeral to become about Megan Markle and Harry the un-Prince.

The King should have straight up told them they are not welcome. They are nothing but a distraction and their soap opera crap has detracted from the solemnity of the Queen's passing. A divorce is a divorce. You two went away, so stay away. That's what you wanted. Live iwth it.

"Mahwage" is from "Four Weddings and a funeral" with what's his name as the vicar with a lisp. That was a good movie and what's his name did a good, funny job. However, if you're a clergy person and know and like a number of clergypeople it gets a bit tiresome when they're only presented as stupid, silly buffoons or ones , that are mega church pastors, or faith healers ripping off the laity or, sleeping with members of their flock or both or anguished, depressed and losing their faith as in "First Reformed."

Absurd. Gas prices have dipped a bit because demand has cooled because the prices have been so high and because Biden has been raiding the Strategic Petroleum Reserve despite that being intended for actual emergencies and not politics.

Both things will be coming to and end soon and while you seem to think that is the only issue the rest of the country is still dealing with massive inflation across the board, illegals, crime and host of other issues.

395 "It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. . . Those who wish to proceed in that direction cannot lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers."
