The Morning Report — 11/25/22

Joeyzhicago.jpg

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here, as is "black Friday." I have no idea how the semi-official kickoff to the Christmas shopping season got that name given the mood of the nation, as well as an economy that is having more and more people in the red, it doesn't quite fit. We're light on the links as is usually the case over a long holiday weekend, but there are some crucial things to touch upon that, as is my wont, give me both nightmares as well as glimmers of hope, not necessarily in that order and certainly not in equal amounts.

If you've been reading this column over any length of time since the events of election day 2020 and January 6th 2021, I have asserted that in the wake of those events, the last vestiges of America as founded have ceased to be, yet many continue to go about their lives as if it's business as usual. Like Bruce Willis in the 6th Sense, we keep turning that red doorknob and can't understand for the life of us why the damn thing won't open.

For those keeping count, we are already up to seven possible known, serious (relatively speaking) candidates—including Trump and DeSantis. Thus, the GOP’s circular firing squad is dutifully forming two years before the election even begins . . .

. . . Whatever the GOP decides, though, it must ensure that there is no repeat of the primary debacles of 2012 and 2016. Men like Pompeo or Pence—let alone Cruz—though they have done much for the party, stand no chance at winning the nomination in 2024—unless Trump and DeSantis are out of the running. But at least one of them will be running. Such an internecine spectacle would only weaken the GOP and probably help Joe Biden (and his handlers) sleepwalk their way into another term in the White House—and would jeopardize the GOP’s chances at being a majority party for a generation.

The analysis in this article is thoughtful, considered and completely out of touch with reality. First, the GOP itself is in a civil war to determine its direction; Democrat-Leftist-Globalist sham opposition party or an actual honest to goodness party whose platform consists of one aim – restoration of America as founded. Second, our electoral system in far too many crucial states has been legally re-jiggered (racist word?) to favor Democrats who use it to go up to the line in obtaining votes and/or ballots and no doubt go over the line into unambiguous criminal forging, coercing, stealing and fraud. All while the GOP does nothing to either fight it or take advantage of the system in the same way without going over that line. Third, and least important, politics ain't beanbag, as the saying goes, and a fight between primary rivals is to be expected. The media and the Democrats (BIRM) no doubt will use soundbites with which to slime us. The most egregious of which is the phrase "trickle down economics" that Pappy Bush invented to ding Reagan, but has been weaponized to great effect against free market capitalism for almost 40 years. Meh, I think I just contradicted my third point. But I digress.

While the unethical, amoral, farcical, banana republic-esque yet legal degradation of one citizen, one vote, one day into election season with no security, no checks and no time limits will be extremely difficult if now no longer possible to overcome, let alone return to the "1-1-1 Plan" (pace the late Herman Cain), the truly alarming thing is that the legitimate votes cast for the Vegetable-in-Chief and Senator-elect Pat "it's not a" Too-mah in Pennsylvania were more than enough to get them within the margin of fraud to overcome. Maybe not Biden, judging from the vote count on election night 2020 when he was down by six digits yet was up by five digits 24 hours later.

Still, the sands of time don't exactly flow up the hourglass and as me and my generation get smaller and smaller in number, those who were weaned on the 1619 Project and Ibram X. Krement's Jive Kampf are taking our place.

The Left’s most successful youth voter turnout operation began when a Fort Lauderdale record store owner was busted for selling 2 Live Crew’s ‘As Nasty as They Wanna Be’ album.

The record store owner was convicted of obscenity charges after Judge Jose Gonzalez had denounced the rap album, containing numbers such as ‘Me So Horny’ and ‘Dick Almighty’, for its “references to violence against women and abusive sex”. The record store owner would later be busted for selling cocaine and was accused of pushing crack through his store.

While he did not have a happy ending, music industry executives at Virgin Records, worried about the impact of obscenity rulings on their bottom line, created Rock the Vote. Officially its purpose was to mobilize youth turnout to avoid having the country run by older politicians who just didn’t “get the youth”, or at least the destructive culture that older executives were pushing on the youth, but RTV was a Democratic voter turnout operation from the very beginning.

“Did you know youth voters canceled out every voter over 65+ for 2022?” Rock the Vote recently bragged. The voters they wanted to cancel out were Republicans and moderate Democrats. . .

. . . Facing widespread discontent from virtually every adult demographic, with Latino, Jewish, Asian and even black voters shifting toward Republicans, they bet on Generation Z. And it delivered.

In the midst of a terrible economy and a crime wave, Democrats were boosted by a demographic least likely to share adult concerns about the economy, schools and public safety, and most likely to be animated by phantom ideological narratives about social justice, abortion and global warming.

Democrats enjoyed the highest turnout for younger voters in a generation with a 31% turnout. Especially in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan.

That doesn’t just happen.

Rock the Vote, which claims to be nonpartisan and can only operate only on the condition of not expressing a party preference, published an officially branded table, boasting that, “Why wasn’t 2022 a red wave? The youth vote. Young voters were the only age group with a strong majority support among Democrats. . .”

. . . Rock the Vote is not only nonpartisan, it has a direct connection to the Biden administration’s public engagement team. That makes it not only partisan, but is being partly supervised from inside the administration of a prospective presidential candidate. That’s blatantly illegal.

RTV’s upper echelons are stacked with Democrat political operatives. . .

. . . But there’s little ambiguity about the fact that Rock the Vote is a Democrat voter turnout operation under people who have specialized in turning out Democrat voters. . .

. . . The effects, like the recent midterms, appear unnatural and impossible unless you understand what the machine fed by massive amounts of harvested data and virtually unlimited amounts of tax-exempt cash from major donors and corporate alliances is doing behind the scenes.

Rock the Vote’s agenda, which it’s not at all shy about, is championing leftist agenda items and electing Democrats to implement them. Or as RTV put it, “Whether it’s climate justice, healthcare, inflation, reproductive rights, education, or something else, there’s a lot on the ballot right now. Don’t let your voice go unheard!” . . .

. . . The DNC can afford to spend a mere $5 million on its voter registration campaign because most of the work is already being done for it by an army of nonprofits  with nearly infinite budgets.

Ironically, the standard bearer for these little Maoists is an 80-year-old white male pervert and sexual abuser of women, whose best friends over the past 50 years were actual Dixiecrat racists and Klansmen because he himself is as racist and bigoted as they are. But they'll overlook that because, "OrangeManBad!" and America evil, or something.

I said, though that there is reason to be hopeful. And those reasons come from, of all places, Iran.

Iran arrested a prominent former member of its national soccer team on Thursday over his criticism of the government as authorities grapple with nationwide protests that have cast a shadow over its competition at the World Cup. . .

. . . Ghafouri, who was not chosen to go to the World Cup, has been an outspoken critic of Iranian authorities throughout his career. He objected to a longstanding ban on women spectators at men’s soccer matches as well as Iran’s confrontational foreign policy, which has led to crippling Western sanctions.

The reports of his arrest came ahead of Friday’s World Cup match between Iran and Wales. At Iran’s opening match, a 6-2 loss to England, the members of the Iranian national team declined to sing along to their national anthem and some fans expressed support for the protests.

The protests were ignited by the Sept. 16 death of Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish woman arrested by the morality police in the capital, Tehran. They rapidly escalated into nationwide demonstrations calling for the overthrow of the Islamic Republic. The western Kurdish region of the country, where both Amini and Ghafouri are from, has been the epicenter of the protests. Shops were closed in the region on Thursday following calls for a general strike.

And . . . China?

Protests have broken out throughout communist China in response to revamped coronavirus lockdown measures that have gone back into effect amid a skyrocketing number of coronavirus infections.

Dozens of cities across the country have gone back into lockdown with millions of people impacted, a situation that has negatively impacted economic forecasts.

Notable demonstrations have included thousands of workers at an iPhone factory clashing with authorities, protesters breaking out of locked down buildings, and online outrage over an infant who died because her father could not get her medical services due to the country’s lockdowns, The New York Times reported. . .

. . . The report noted that the unrest is unprecedented for the communist nation, which has a history of using force to stamp out dissent.

Me, CBD and Dave in Fla. debated the point about people's inherent yearning to be free. I think the argument was with the way in which Dubya abused that point in order to justify American "nation building" around the world, insofar as he claimed everyone wanted Jeffersonian democracy. While that is a total joke given the disparity of cultures everywhere you turn, I do believe that people all over the world do share the common trait of not wanting someone pissing on their back and insisting it's raining.

Iran and China have serious internal problems that could – COULD, not will – cause both their governments' demises. IF, that were to happen, there is no telling what will follow. It does not necessarily mean some form of democracy. It could even be hell on earth unleashed from the deadeners in their respective regimes.

Yet, what's happening now is unmistakable. People are fed up with being abused by their government. Doesn't that sound familiar? The problem is a significant portion of the population here is allied with this government and views us who oppose it as the problem. Maybe that's not the case in Iran and China.

But, still I persist. We shall overcome. Have a good rest of the holiday weekend.

I agree but the majority of my interactions with atheists is this: If they so much as think that you might possibly concede the smallest possibility in the existence of the Divine, they will be on you like white on rice. After a few encounters like that, you start rolling your eyes at them as they try to evangelize you without seeing the irony.

32 Federal agencies under the Biden administration have been using a value of $51 per metric ton of CO2 – which in itself was a steep climb from the Trump administration’s $1 per metric ton.

Now the EPA is proposing to go even higher, at $190 per metric ton. Among other effects, raising this cost is likely to raise the prices at the gaspump.

68 No thought is given to American citizens that are victims of crimes by illegal aliens. No thought is given by Chuck and his Party, the Party that is always spouting about “saving our democracy,” to how their plan to import new voters from poor countries undermines “our democracy” because the enormous flood of new voters dilutes the votes of the citizens who have lived in the US for a long time and have a stake in US values and prosperity.

But thought is carefully given to the fact these people come from generally corrupt and socialist countries. Anyone violating simple laws of immigration and personal responsibility have no issues violating campaign and voting laws (eg Every Dem Major City). These people will be easier to RULE over than citizens and when relocated to suburban areas will flip those conclaves to inner city like neighborhoods.

114 Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu won his defamation lawsuit against former prime minister Ehud Olmert in one of two counts on Monday, according to the ruling by Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court Deputy President Amit Yariv.

Yariv found that Olmert’s claim that essentially said the Netanyahus are crazy was too close to sounding like he was describing a medical fact, whereas he had no clear basis for attacking the Netanyahus in this way, other than hearsay.

The court fined Olmert NIS 20,000 regarding Netanyahu himself, NIS 35,000 regarding his wife, Sara, and NIS 7,500 regarding Yair, with the low amount being connected to his attacking others as being crazy. Further, Yariv granted NIS 35,000 against Olmert and in favor of Netanyahu for court and legal costs.

116 Britannica:
The term dates back to the early 1960s, when police officers in Philadelphia began using the phrase “Black Friday” to describe the chaos that resulted when large numbers of suburban tourists came into the city to begin their holiday shopping and, in some years, attend Saturday’s annual Army-Navy football game.
The huge crowds created a headache for the police, who worked longer shifts than usual as they dealt with traffic jams, accidents, shoplifting, and other issues.
Within a few years, the term Black Friday had taken root in Philadelphia. City merchants attempted to put a prettier face on the day by calling it “Big Friday.”
The phrase “Black Friday” to signify a positive boost in retail sales didn’t grow nationwide until the late 1980s, when merchants started to spread the red-to-black profit narrative. Black Friday was described as the day stores began to turn a profit for the year and as the biggest shopping day in the United States.
In truth, most stores saw their largest sales on the Saturday before Christmas.

He ran then on "out-vote the margin of fraud."

I've been more than morbidly curious to see some analysis about the chances of such a plan succeeding during the lame duck session.

A writer at Am Greatness (sorry, didn't grab the link) pours a big glass of nah bros on the chances. Sadly, it rests on the Senate filibuster though.

R amnesty hawks like Rubio and his Lindsey sister have both poured cold water on the scheme; it takes 60 Ys to break the filibuster. Without those two...

I think DT is aware of that angle. In 2016 he won by careful calculation of what it would take to beat the system. 2020 threw a wrench in the system, which the Dems exploited to the max, with the assistance of the GOP.

It's pretty clear that DT will have to do it either without the GOP, or by displacing the entire hierarchy of the party.

143 "Donald Trump will be readmitted to Twitter. Hooray. But Elon Musk's justification for bringing him back should make us all nervous."

Elon Musk's Warped Idea of Free Speech


Good points made in the article. I wonder if anyone praising Musk's actions even realizes what "vox populi, vox dei" means. (I didn't, until I looked it up).

Vox Populi, Vox Dei," which, loosely translated from Latin, means "the voice of the people is the voice of God." [ . . . ]

Freedom of speech is not a principle rooted in the notion of "vox populi, vox dei." It is a principle rooted in liberty, which is a divine right protected by our Constitution.

That is not a subtle or unimportant distinction. Because without the common understanding that freedom of speech is an exercise of one's providential right to liberty, democracy and freedom of speech are entirely incompatible. As is explicitly stated in the Declaration of Independence, government exists to secure the people's immutable, God-given right to liberty. It does not exist to act upon the "voice of the people" as substitute for "the voice of God."

150 Good morning JJ, Horderats, and all the sheeps at sea.

On our morning walk, Daisy and I saw several white-tails flitting along the woods - we did not give chase, although she gave a good tug on the leash. Watched a big orange ball of fire lifting above the horizon. Actually surprised me a bit just how far South the sun is at sunrise. Of course, it's only a month 'til the Solstice turnaround.

This coffee is pretty good. I might have to start the day with some leftover pie.

When it is clear that safety was not increased, they are having trouble explaining their source for the increased safety decision because safety was always a lie and they don't want to admit that they were simply taking advantage of the situation to be authoritarian.

I get exhausted by this nonsense that we must all be the same, and all must be liberal to be real. There are honest and dishonest Jews, selfish and selfish, hardworking and lazy, leftist and rightwing, smart and stupid and every combination in between.

To people like Tamkin, Jewish values are entirely political, and never religious. Her values are the same as Valerie Jarrett's "by any means necessary", which plays and increasingly prevalent role in leftist congregations of all religions. There is even a part in my former congregation's Yom Kippur service in which we all apologize for using evil means to achieve good goals. And that you can pass on to your kids no matter who you are or who you marry.

163 That said about Musk and his attitude of "the voice of the people is the voice of God" for how to run Twitter, it definitely is an improvement over what it had been.

But it definitely is not "free speech".

In a more recent Tweet this week, Musk basically explained the new basis for "free speech" on Twitter. You can enjoy "free speech" so long as you do not break the law or spam.

My guess is this is his justification for not allowing Alex Jones back on Twitter. But this then leaves "free speech" in the arena of the courts, which lean left. What happens if/when the Left starts using the courts to go after conservatives and wins frivolous lawsuits against them? By Musk's definition of "breaking the law", that would mean those people are no longer allowed on Twitter. So you can bet that is what the next step will be for the Left.

Before I became interested in and following politics, I read a column by William Safire back in the early 80s where he noted the simple difference between (at that time) conservatives and liberals: conservatives value liberty & freedom over security & safety, whereas liberals value security & safety over liberty & freedom [and helps explain the male/female and adult/child political divides].

Anyway, coincidentally was saying this same thing to a friend over Thanksgiving dinner yesterday ... noting that the Left with their Progdam MDM-MSM whores have been promoting one fear-porn hysteria after another seemingly my entire lifetime (from the DDT scare to the Alar Scare to the Global Warming Scare to the Covid Scare).

It seems that he has a child with some kind of chronic medical condition and he was upset that he went to a doctor appointment and they didn't have an apartment size filtration system for the exam room, the doctor was not wearing a 99 mask and -gasp!- they didn't have a CO2 readout for the room air! And his CO2 meter showed it was 2000ppm at the end of the exam! He was trying to say that all of these things are a minimum basic requirement that all homes and businesses must comply with going forward to ensure the safety of his daughter and those like her.

It's a wonder anybody believes the Left anymore after decades of lies and their "predictions" shown to be 100% false over time.

The problem seems to be that the Left, in controlling the school system and college/university system, have brainwashed the last two generations of Americans to not think with reason or logic anymore.

Anyone should have been able to see right through the lies of the Plandemic early on regarding masking, lockdowns and "social-distancing". Anyone should have been able to see through the lies of "climate change" early on when Al Gore and the Left started pushing it as policy after decades of their "predictions" not coming true and most of their claims proven lies. Anyone should have known "Voter ID is racist!" is a lie since ID is required for everything in society.

And it ultimately will cause her to experience anger and resentment against her. Forcing the world to accommodate your condition is a lose-lose situation. Many schools in NJ ban certain foods to protect one child, instead of equipping the child with the knowledge required to assure his own safety. Nuts are particularly singled out, but other parents have lobbied to ban dairy products and even strawberries.

I feel for them, but they need to make themselves and the child responsible.

Indeed. There's some kind of systemic permanent amnesia that appears to be part of the mass formation psychosis phenomenon.

Once somebody intentionally lies to me (in person or some public individual), they've forfeited all credibility & trust -- and will likely fail to re-earn it no matter how honest they subsequently become or appear.

I'm not at all convinced people DON'T like getting pissed on, including if not especially Americans. I found the 2022 election to be the last stop on the road to full-blown totalitarianism precisely because people voted for their torment. Bloomberg is a fucking idiot, but one thing he got right was in re to China having to keep people on its side. Dictatorships exist not in spite of their populations but because of them. The Iron Curtain falling across the Zombie United States is due to widespread support.

Kelvin Blowe, 32, was shot dead after a car crash just before 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday in Washington, DC.

The Marine Corps veteran, who was diagnosed with PTSD, was working as a security guard and was taking coworkers home last week when he was shot and killed when a gunman “emerged from a stolen car after a crash with Blowe.

This is a very good point and one that has it's roots FAR FAR back. The demagogues of greece or the Popularies of Rome could tell you a thing or two about how dangerous it is to just go with the majority view. That does not make it right.

Of course, this same reasoning is also how the Commies justify changing vote totals. THIER view is Right and the populace must be made to submit to it.

It is all a bloody mess. The Founders tried to square this circle by inherently limiting the power of the government and therefore the ability of either the people or the oligarchal elite to be able to change people's lives. FREEDOM was the goal, not the acquisition of some ephemeral idea of the Will of the People.

looking beyond nations, the Islamic cult thing unites large groups .. though they have trouble not warring against each other (especially with some CIA color revolution aid). Most nations seem much more nationalist than the USA, especially in the Far East (from stories I hear.)

But what does "The West" still want for themselves? imo Americans are still largely MAGA, hence the CIA/DS run the color revolutions right here in River City. Europe showing a few signs of wanting more national pride in the old ways. The Islamist invasion is rejected by ? 75% but the BigMoney runs the show.

260 The XO was really disappointed with the Black Friday ads, Menards in particular.

I think the Christmas shopping season is shot to hell this year. Merchants are afraid to offer the "doorbuster" sales because a) they have no idea if the merchandise will actually be available, and b) the price they agreed to pay months back has been destroyed by inflation. People, like me, are squeezing every penny til it screams because of inflation. And now we keep hearing about the freight train strike that was supposed to have been handled, hasn't. My grandkids are getting the same thing for Christmas they got last year: Amazon gift cards for the same exact amount. The XO didn't get a raise this year. Why should Santa?

Personally, I'm glad I no longer have the bookstore. I think I would be chewing my fingernails to the first knuckle of each finger wondering if the store would survive.

They may well be collecting ballots from actual voters expressing their desired picks, but many, if not most, are from people giving up those ballots, unmarked, in return for cash, or nursing home ballots sent to people who don't recognize their own children and marked by others, from ballots marked in the presence of an overbearing spouse, a union official, a gang member.

It isn't a vote.

265 Someone may have answered this in the chain, but "Black Friday" got it's name because it was supposedly the day retailers finally broke into the black (i.e. out of the red, and into profits).

268 “I do believe that people all over the world do share the common trait of not wanting someone pissing on their back and insisting it's raining.”

Accurate statement.

But more importantly, how much pissing on their back will people accept before they risk anything, their jobs, their friends, up to and including their lives and the lives of their family, before they do a damn thing about it?

In the USA, it likely will need to get much worse before “traditional Americans” will do anything even minimally effective at the national level. And by that time, unfortunately, it will likely be too late.
