The Morning Report — 9/28/22

girogiasavona.jpg

Good morning kids. Wednesday and if you needed an indicator that America as it was or how you imagined it is no more — as if stolen elections, organized political terrorism and official state persecution, rigged elections, an intentionally engineered economic collapse, censorship, and cultural dissolution and depravity didn't do the trick — maybe this might give you a hint that something is rotten in the state of Denmark. As a category 4 hurricane is bearing down on the Gulf Coast, Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants Biden spoke with a number of elected officials in the storm's projected path, but refused to talk with Ron Desantis.

The putative "president" of the United States ignoring the governor of Florida as millions of citizens face a potentially massive natural disaster. Wow. Finally, word came down from the Junta's mush-mouthed, Malveaux-muff-diving, mop-topped Marxist mouthpiece that the two finally did connect, though I imagine the conversation must have been a bit one-sided. Perhaps that was the reason Biden was prevented from "talking" with DeSantis because the former's handlers feared the latter would make the most of what undoubtedly had to be nothing more than enduring the inchoate ravings of a demented vegetable.

But I fear it's much more than just that. Florida stands in sharp contrast to the unnatural manmade disaster that is Democrat-controlled America. That is, the DeSantis miracle vs the Biden catastrophe of the past 20 months. Even worse to contemplate, but given the blood-libeling from the Junta and its followers of red state America, Biden couldn't be seen to talk with DeSantis on anything perceived to be common ground. During situations like this, politics is supposed to be completely out of the picture; at the water's edge during time of war, as it were. But we're now at war with each other.

Take it a step further: Biden and the Junta are actually rooting for Hurricane Ian to leave behind the maximum amount of death and destruction in its wake, as a means to ding DeSantis, their perceived foe going into 2024. Worse, if it harms thousands of people whom they regard as lower than dog shit on the bottom of their shoes, even better. The Left has done this like clockwork whenever natural disasters hit red state American communities, mocking the concept of God's will, so you can bet your ass they're praying for a hit, to whatever golden calf, tree, or Moloch-du-jour they worship.

I've often stated that post the stolen election of 2020 and overthrow of the last vestige of America as founded, we're in some sort of interregnum; a zombie-like state wherein we have the illusion of regular order even as everything crashes and burns around us. Take the notion of what is supposed to be a standard call between a president and a governor during a natural disaster and look at how DeSantis was treated. Now, put that in context with Joey's Independence Hall Nuremberg Rally speech wherein he condemned half the country as traitors and insurrectionists, a cancer that needs to be eradicated, "a clear and present danger." How the hell is Biden (if he even lasts that long) supposed to get up on national television walk to the middle of a stage and shake Ron DeSantis' hand before the first presidential debate? Now imagine instead of DeSantis, it's Donald Trump.

As you ponder that scenario, there are encouraging signs everywhere, not least of which Ron DeSantis himself with his genius Alinskyite tactic of shipping illegal aliens directly to a Leftist heart of darkness and exposing them as the racist hypocrites they are. Another one that I don't want to get lost in the sauce are the flashes of sanity occurring on the European continent. First, in Sweden and now in Italy with the election of Giorgia Meloni, the country's first female PM and more importantly, a Savonarola who is giving them hell over there. And as Harry Truman explained, "I don't give them hell. I give them the truth and they think it's hell."

“The issue of individual freedom, private enterprise in economy, educational freedom, the centrality of family and its role in our society, the protection of borders from unchecked immigration, the defense of the Italian national identity -- these are the matters that we preoccupy ourselves with.” Of course, she’s very firm on her beliefs and principles. As she said at CPAC 2022:

“We (conservatives) are proud of our identities, of what we stand for. We live in an age where everything it stands for is under attack: our individual freedom is under attack, our rights are under attack, the sovereignty of our nations is under attack, the prosperity and well-being of our families is under attack, our children’s education is under attack. Faced with this, people understand that in this era, the only way to be rebellious is to preserve who we are, the only way to be rebellious is to be conservative. […] I see cancel culture fanatics in our institutions tearing down statues, tempering with books and comics, changing street names, accusing a shared history that they would like to rewrite. […] All of you in America and we in Europe, and our friends on all the other continents, are proud of our identities, of what we stand for. And we know that our opponent is operating globally, applying the same tactics and with the same ideology, to destroy our identities and what makes us who we truly are.  […] Only a few months ago, European bureaucrats wrote a document, hundreds of pages long, telling us that in order to be inclusive we have to exclude all references to Christmas, Jesus, Mary and that all Christian names should be removed from all communications.”

Meloni concluded her speech with a quote from G.K. Chesterton, “’Fires will be kindled to testify that two and two make four. Swords will be drawn to prove that leaves are green in summer.’ The time of that battle has come, but they will find us ready for the battle.” . . .

. . . It is well known that Meloni is not alone on this path. Apart from her closeness to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, she is the president of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR), a political group in the European Parliament established in 2009 under the founding principles of the Prague Declaration. It includes Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party as well as center-right parties on the rise in countries like Spain (Vox) and Sweden (Sweden Democrats -- which after the results of the 2022 Swedish general election is the largest member of Sweden’s conservative bloc and the second largest party in the next Swedish parliament -- and Independent).

To be sure, there are significant differences between us and Europe's "conservatives" but putting aside the tortured appellations that have been abused and debased by so many, as well as differing world views between us and them, Meloni and others like her both here and abroad know and understand that the wolf is now at our throat. While the lights for sure are going out all over Europe, and here, the alarm bells are ringing loudly and it appears, I pray, more and more of us are responding. Please God.

52 It's not a coincidence that the day after Meloni's election, NS 1 and 2 were sabotaged.

The danger of Europeans reconciling with Russian gas by the election of a right leaning leaders that have signaled they will not comply with the enforced American/British economic suicide was palpable.

And so your good, patriotic American leaders did what they must do to ensure the world doesn't begin ignoring the American government-corporate ruling class edicts.

America will not stand for the world to deal with energy resources that are not under their thumb.

57 Eric Adams took his ridiculous self to Puerto Rico, expressing support for the corrupt politicians there as they build their scam operation up and get ready to receive the money gusher of hurricane relief.

The Mayor did one nutty thing after another, but this takes the cake: he referred to Puerto Rico as a foreign country, when Puerto Rico is a US territory and PR citizens are also US citizens.

"When I walked with that polo shirt with MAYOR on the back of it and went in those different locations, you have looked at the faces of people. That this city was saying to people that they matter," Adams said, "That means so much to people outside of this country and those who are part of are locations around the globe. We take that for granted."

58 It would not surprise me one bit if NOAA changed the criteria for what constitutes a Cat 1 - 5 hurricane to make "severe" hurricanes more likely.

64 Something I was thinking about on the drive in this morning:

-The Alamo
-Canae
-Bastogne
-Custer's Last Stand

Most guys I have ever talked to about these knows what I am talking about. The heroic last stand- even if you did something stupid to get there (Canae and Custer for example.) They cause dude's eyes to light up. It fires something deep within us. And the futile defeats even more so than the victories. I am not trying to disparage women, I am not sure how they respond to this, but the few times I have brought up these situations, the response has not been as near universal as when you discuss it with guys.

I was thinking about this in the context of Rings of Power (as well as other modern, mary sue properties.) I do not think the writers would have the same reaction if you asked them about these (after you had to explain what happened in each case.) They have a fundamental misunderstanding of what fires people's passions. They do not understand that one of the reasons you make a character flawed or lose is because you see the mettle of a Man in how he faces defeat or death. It speaks to us. Rings true. Inspires us.

I'm sure you are correct, they would do such a thing.

But if they don't possess such possibilities, they don't really care. Freezing Europeans are less of a problem in their eyes than an independent Russia amassing wealth and influence.

The western hegemony, if forced to choose between seeing influence slipping away and destroying lives and killing people, will always choose the latter.

Citizens are expendable, the African continent has tons of them. Better yet, they are uneducated, impoverished citizens that are already used to eating bugs.

i'm still kind of surprised we are at Ian in the naming scale when there's been no activity to speak of. i swear they're naming any general number of clouds moving in something that sort of resembles a circular motion with a gust over 34 mph as a storm so they can talk about the number of named storms climbing each year...

105 As fuel prices reached historic highs, Biden stubbornly refused to do anything that would increase domestic supply, opting instead to buy fuel from overseas before eventually raiding the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. It was a foolish thing to do, and while gas prices have gone down, the impact of raiding the reserves is debatable. But one thing is for sure: Biden depleted the reserves, which are now at a 37-year low, to boost his poll numbers.

Amazingly, I don't think most citizens understand this truth.

Price increases are a certainty, after election day, and pray America doesn't need the SPR between now and the years ahead of replenishment that will be necessary to undo the Biden damage.

The other problem, also political but less existential, is that DeSantis has been doing a good job. Setting up evacuation orders and plans, getting out in front of the coming problem, encouraging people to be responsible and making efforts to keep and maintain the peace. DeSantis has been the vision of competence so far. What could Biden do that would make Biden look better? This ain't New Orleans in 2008, ruled by incompetence and indifference.

The electricity and telephone men usually do an unbelievable job in the wake of a major disaster, and the number of them that volunteer to go to the disaster area to assist the local crews never ceases to amaze me. As soon as airfields are open, there will be telephone and electricity men landing from all over the continent to go help. The only thing I've routinely seen like it is wildfire. When there's a bad fire, wildland firefighters descend on the fire from all corners, including from foreign countries. When there's a bad fire, men from all five great firefighting nations (US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Russia) rally to it. It's truly a thing to behold.

But third worlders rarely pose a threat to the truly elite. We have basically kept South America, the Middle East and continental Africa in a perpetual state of subsistence living for centuries without even putting a boot on the ground.

151 Short Story:

At my watering hole/diner I met a real authentic frontier crazy fucking nut. He claimed to be the illegitimate son of QE II and had just got back from her funeral. I guess he was raised up in lake Sam Rayburn by some rich dude after he was smuggled out of London after a car bombing attempt on his life.

This went on for about 20 minutes.

Oh yeah, he had to call Obama later that evening on some work he was doing to help inflation.

People tend to make fun of Marlin, because he let Jim do the heavy work in his later years, but yeah, he was a certified badass. Became the director of nationally-recognized zoos with only a high school diploma, and specialized in snakes in his earlier years. He was bitten by multiple venomous snakes over the course of his career.

Sikorski is married to the neoconservative writer Anne Appelbaum ...

Sure. We see that here, too. It's commonplace. My entire education was spent hearing about how Hitler was right-wing. How was a *socialist* right-wing? Easy: he was a nationalist.

From the intensity of the initial explosion it seems it should have momentarily caught fire. But wouldn't it then backtrack all the way through the pipeline to Poland, then Germany, then Russia? Perhaps even forward to Sweden?

Two, if we can only discover the right particle at the right level, we can control and create the universe as we wish. Call this the God Particle or Santy Claus particle.

Would the Santy Claus Particle open up and new world of freedom and fulfillment for everyone. Or would it be used as a weapon against them there deplorables of whatever stripe?

They equate their party system with ours, and that's not an apt comparison. For the most part, Italians of all parties loathe the fascists. To call someone a fascists as a pejorative, which the American media has casually done, does not sit well even with most of the Italian Left, and several of their leaders have said so. There are still people around who either remember, or heard the first hand stories about Mussolini and the Italian fascists. It was a horrible time for most Italians and the brutal death of Mussolini gives you a slight hint how terrible that time was. By the way, most of the media don't know that Mussolini started out as a journalist. Imagine the irony...

It’s “conservative” if you don’t believe it’s appropriate to teach elementary schoolers about anal sex, felching, fellatio and cunnilingus. It’s “conservative” if you don’t think dudes should be competing in female sports. It’s “conservative” if you believe in free speech.

310 Good morning, and thank you J.J.

Reportedly, Mark Houch of the FBI raid was an intimidating man who carried a knife on his belt at times while around abortion clinics. Perhaps this new allegation is needed as the narrative maybe falling apart about him assaulting a clinic escort v. medical providers. (I think definitions in statutes manner but not a lawyer.)

So today is the day Jamie and Liz of the 1/6 Committee have Riggleman testify? (Bombshell testimony was recently promised.) IMHO, they're still hunting for at least one text msg which can be interpreted Trump had an opportunity to call off the 'riot' but did little to nothing within his power. (He knew but placed no importance on taking action as he had regarding Charlottesville. Willfulness is what they're pursuing.)

Local Aldi market had trout, fresh vegetables & fruit and most dairy, though butter was sparse. There was also white and brown rice. However, the packaged and/or processed foods and drinks often depended on by families with children were extremely limited or simply not available, as was meat and poultry.

315 Bottoms responded “What we see, again, with this MAGA Republican agenda, is an effort to disrupt our democracy,” adding “I think it will always be important to call out any effort there is to destroy, essentially, destroy the United States of America.”

She continued, “when you have a MAGA Republican agenda that has no respect for the Constitution, that has no respect for free and fair elections, then it is important for all of us, not just the president, not just me, for all of us to call it out for what it is. It is a danger to our democracy, it is a danger to our way of life.”

Back in the 80s there was a swine flu panic.

The government rushed out a vaccine that killed people and set up a propaganda system to get everyone to take it. After a handful of people died they pulled the vaccine and shut down the propaganda operation.

But the government wasn't completely corrupt in the 80s. And the people then would have started getting Minutemen-y if they tried what they did in 2020...

The left: America is a fascist country where white supremacists walk down the street murdering black and brown people with impunity.

Also the left: Texas and Florida are the MOST racist states in America with literal NAZIs as governors

Also, also the left: If you deny any Latin American immigrant the right to come into the US you are a racist, but they have to stay in Texas or Florida.

The one thing about MoA that might make people uncomfortable is that there's a segment of the commentariat that leans communist. But, their insight is interesting to me still. Having been surrounded by real communists half my life, it doesn't bother me much, and they by no means are the majority. I have learned that free speech means free friggin' speech, and I enjoy finding my own beliefs challenged.

411 In a Friday interview with the Wall Street Journal, Zelensky responded to the recent remarks of his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, who said earlier this week that Russia and Ukraine could have ended their conflict in March if Kiev had not withdrawn from negotiations.

Calling this statement “total delirium,” the Ukrainian leader said that, prior to Moscow’s offensive, he had been trying to talk to Putin for a long time but he couldn’t be bothered to take a phone call.

“He came here without talking, killed people, displaced 12 million, and now says Ukraine doesn’t want to negotiate. They just murder people, destroy cities, enter them, and then say: ‘Let’s negotiate’. With whom can they talk? With rocks? They are covered in blood, and this blood is impossible to wash off. We will not let them wash it off,” Zelensky said.

I have pointed out before that if the government tried that shit back in the 90s, it would never have worked. Not because people would have risen up. Because they would have laughed in their faces. "Wear a mask? Stay indoors? Shut down the economy? Not happening, you guinea midget. GTFO."

But of course, the government sensed that, and never would have tried it. They do what they do, from COVID to stolen elections to Nuremberg rallies in Philly, because they have the innate instinct of the tyrant as to what they can get away with.

At the end of the day, this is the fault of the American people... these psychos can always smell a willing victim a mile away.

427 It seems plausible that one could have merely detonated something in the the vicinity near a major junction of pipes and let the shock waves damage the pipelines.

Pipelines were never designed like submarines, to withstand a depth charge attack; a submarine hull has to withstand the entire pressure of the ocean depths, while pipelines can be internally pressurized by the fluids they pump. It takes far less of a blast to damage a pipeline than sink a sub.

Liberals have no sense of history, and the very little they know they try to purposely distort. They believe that covers for their abject failures and the fallibility of their philosophical objectives. It doesn't, only because there are a lot of people smarter than them. People who can discern true history and factual events from their propaganda. It's why they want to corrupt the education system. Because the truth will destroy them.

I had a relative who several times showed us a picture of Mussolini and the other fascists hanging from the gas station structure in Piazzale Loreto. They always told the kids, this is what happens to bad people. Point being, Liberals have no idea how opposed to fascism almost every Italian is.

474 Fetterman wins major endorsement of Pa. State Building & Construction Trades Council. Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters Endorse Fetterman for Senate. AFSCME Council 13 members endorse Fetterman for US Senate, Davis for LG. And also, the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals endorsed Lt. Gov. John Fetterman for U.S. Senate on Nov. 8.

That is why PA is an "issue" and why Right to Work will likely affect DeSantis and many others in heavily unionized states. There's also very little press on Prison Reform and Fetterman's Board of Pardons. There's little press on how the gas pipeline & fracking industries have been badly damaged in PA; how those industries support communities, and how Fetterman does not, in fact, support those industries. Lastly, you may be surprised on the issues the League of Women Voters routinely support.

Lastly, worried about the Libertarians in PA? Worry about the Socialist Democrats and Workers Party and their ever increasing slate of candidates, not just in PA & not just in state politics.

Records show his co-defendant, Omar Rueda-Denvers, remained in custody Tuesday. The 47-year-old from Guatemala is serving a life sentence at a different Nevada prison for murder, attempted murder, explosives and other charges.

A Clark County District Court jury spared both men from the death penalty in the slaying of Willebaldo Dorantes Antonio, whom prosecutors identified as the boyfriend of Rueda-Denvers’ ex-girlfriend.

484 Unchecked: The Untold Story Behind Congress’s Botched Impeachments of Donald Trump

In October 2019, amid the Democrats’ plan to hold a full House vote on a resolution outlining the structure of impeachment proceedings against Trump, Nadler, according to the book, took issue with how Schiff, who was tapped by Pelosi to lead impeachment efforts, was prepared to proceed with the impeachment without due process for Trump.

Worried about the situation and the likelihood that his Judiciary Committee would not be able to cross-examine witnesses as the committee had done traditionally, Nadler confronted Schiff about the planned process, and, according to the book, said: “It’s unfair, and it’s unprecedented, and it’s unconstitutional.”

Had Custer crossed the Little Big Horn west with his full command he could have swept the Indian village. That he divided his command into bits and pieces meant he did not have command of any of his positions, nor could those positions aid the other. Cavalry needs speed and mass to deliver shock.
