The Morning Report — 12/8/22

tillisbipart.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and a bit of housekeeping before getting into the main event.

After today, I will no longer be linking to the New York Post. This morning as I was gathering the links, I came across this article, and, aside from my own personal interest in this subject it was one that I thought you all would be as well:

Former Nazi "Secretary of Evil," 97, Speaks Out for the First Time

So, after a long history of this person, her deeds, her quotes, survivors' quotes, etc. etc., I get to the last paragraph:

The end of Furchner’s proceedings also comes at a particularly fraught time, as rapper Kanye West’s rants praising Hitler and Nazis have led to a surge in anti-Semitism. Earlier this week, NYPD statistics also revealed that anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York City were up 125% in November compared to the same month in 2021.

Jonathan Greenblatt, national director and CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said Jewish communities are bracing for backlash after West’s comments, warning that the vitriol was “escalating from ugliness to incitement.”

Seriously? Are you fucking kidding me? Kanye West. Translation: DONALD TRUMP and the MAGA MOVEMENT. To say that these two stories are even tangentially related is, at best, a stretch. In point of fact, they have nothing to do with each other. But, let's play along for a moment. The "reporter," some bimbo with the byline of Olivia Land wants to link a nonagenarian Nazi concentration camp secretary to the current rise of anti-Semitism. Okay. Yet, with everything from Al Sharpton to Jessie Jackson to Calypso Louie to "The Squad" to Obama/Jeremiah Wright and on and on and on for freaking decades, this hack chooses Ye.

And who does she quote? Jonathan Greenblatt, a self-gassing apostate Jew who runs the ADL. The only defamation they are anti is that against Democrats and leftists. The real anti-semitism of, say, the religion of peace peaceniks and BLM and Antifa are to be excused if not defended.

The in-your-face, amateur hour, cheap propaganda hackery of Land and her editors is embarrassing, and disgusting. Look, a newspaper has every right to publish editorials for or against people, policies and whatever. Even the Post's anti-Trump ravings, rabid and frothing at the mouth as they were, were kept to the editorial pages. I put up with the Podhoretz's and McCarthy's because of the value of the Devine's and Harlan-Reynolds'.

No more. This kind of propaganda is what I expect of the NY Times, WaPo and CNN. The last thing we need is another one of them. So, thank you and fuck you New York Post. "Never again," pun intended.

Moving on, yesterday, in the wake of wife-beating, Jew-hating, (hello? Olivia Land?) slum-lording Raphael Warnock's big "win" in the Georgia Senate seat runoff (and this poor man's Creflo Dollar-looking doppelgänger is bitching about "voter suppression" despite a record turnout at the polls) as I was bemoaning the state of affairs vis a vis electoral politics and who wields the real power, this link only underscores the near futility of voting, even if the GOP wins.

Proposed changes to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) rules will strip access to public waters and devastate local economies along most of the eastern U.S. coastline, according to boating and fishing advocacy groups.

The North Atlantic Right Whale Vessel Strike Reduction Rule will decimate the U.S.’s multi-billion-dollar boating and fishing industry without protecting endangered North Atlantic right whales (NARW) from severe injuries and deaths, the Center for Sportfishing Policy (CSP) and the South Carolina Boating and Fishing Alliance (SCBFA) told the Daily Caller. . .

. . . “When you talk about putting a 10-knot or an 11.5 mph speed limit on boats over 35 feet, you are suddenly making a day trip to the Gulf Stream or going offshore, in general, more dangerous and more time-consuming,” Brannon said. “It’s not just the time it takes to travel out to sea that is dangerous, but how long it takes to steer cargo ships into the harbor.”

The federal government’s regulation is also causing an untenable economic situation for boating and fishing industries in South Carolina and along the east coast, Brannon warned. “We represent about 23,000 jobs and over 600 related businesses in the $5 billion fishing and boating sector. And those are the businesses — when the federal government does not take into account any balance between the economy and ecology — are the ones that are going to be hurt the most,” he said. . .

. . . Six Republican U.S. Senators, including South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, signed a letter urging  NOAA administrator Richard Spinrad to “modify its proposal so that the NARW is protected, but the unintended consequences … can be eliminated.”

Kevin Bishop, a spokesman for Sen. Graham, told the Caller the rule was “an example of government overreach and government not effectively engaging stakeholders.”

“Senator Graham remains concerned about the safety impact the proposed rule will have on cargo ships and their pilots,” Bishop said, adding that the senator worries the rule will “lead to further delays and exacerbate already strained supply chains” and impact East Coast ports that are part of the National Port Readiness Network.

Say what you will about Lindsay Graham, but he is the duly elected Senator from the state of South Carolina. His purview – in theory – along with his colleagues in the Senate and in the House is the passage of laws that reflect the will of the people who elected him and whom he represents.

With all due respect, that is to say none whatsoever, who the hell elected NOAA administrator Richard Spinrad?

By what authority as laid out in the United States Constitution does this person have to enact what is in fact a law?

And Senator Graham "remains concerned?" If I were the Senator from the State of South Carolina, I'd take a stroll over to the NOAA, march into this prick's cubicle, and do a Pelosi by tearing up the law in his face. Or make it into a barbed-wire-wrapped flaming pineapple and insert it sideways in a certain aperture.

Look, no doubt, the installation of Warnock into the Senate is not exactly healthy for our nation and society. But considering that at best it's on life support and since 2020 is in fact clinically dead, what's the big deal? Are we worried that the filibuster will be killed and leftist judges will be installed? Hell, at least half the judiciary and SCOTUS itself is teetering on the brink. Law schools are pumping out commie apparatchiks now by the bushel. Ditto every damn school including medical schools. But I digress.

So, Warnock's in and it's now 51-49 in the Senate. Look at this and tell me if it really makes a damn bit of difference?

A dozen Senate Republicans already voted to abolish the Defense of Marriage Act, eliminating both marriage and religious freedom in one fell swoop, just as the Supreme Court was moving to protect it. Some of the senators then had the chutzpah to claim that they did it to protect religious freedom. The betrayal is bad enough, treating voters like bamboozled idiots is worse.

And that’s just the beginning of the lame duck sellout session.

Senate Republican RINOs are rushing through their betrayals while they hope no one is paying attention. Next up is amnesty for illegal aliens. Every time you hear about secret negotiations to reach a deal on immigration, it’s always the same damn sellout that it’s been for decades.

The latest incarnation of “immigration reform” once again promises more money for “border security” in exchange for amnesty for illegal aliens. Trading amnesty for border security is like trading your alarm code for a better alarm system. And after multiple rounds of these deals, our border is more open than ever and our country is more filled with illegal migrants than ever.

While Senate sellouts are conducting secret negotiations in the latest incarnation of amnesty (as befits a nation where the people answer to the government, not the other way around), it starts by ratifying Obama’s illegal DACA amnesty to legalize at least 2 million illegal aliens.

And, if past immigration dirty deals are anything to go by, the dirty deal will get much worse.

Republican proponents of making Obama’s lawlessness, lawful, call this a “DACA fix”. An actual fix would end the lawlessness and enforce immigration law, instead of finding new spin for their sellouts. But many of the Senate Republicans who had voted to abolish marriage and religious freedom have also been longtime supporters of illegal alien amnesty. And this is their hour.

Most Americans, in poll after poll, say that they’re sick and tired of Biden’s immigration policies, and yet, somehow, a number of Senate RINOs looked at those numbers and decided that they want a piece of those 60% disapproval ratings while giving Democrats millions more voters.

Why try for win-win, when lose-lose is so much better.

Senate Republicans keep promising that their latest bipartisan deal will finally secure the border. Only the most naive human being alive who had already bought the Brooklyn Bridge with the crypto millions from FTX would take them seriously. Money won’t secure the border. Only a consensus to follow the laws of our country will do that. Politicians who cut the heart out of immigration laws while promising that they’ll enforce them in the future don’t mean it.

Just like a drunk who promises to stop drinking tomorrow doesn’t mean it. . .

. . . Every so often, the RINOs remind their voters that they don’t work for them, they serve the criminals, junkies, illegal aliens and worsening every crisis that we are already drowning in.

While you hang up your Christmas lights and light your menorah, in Washington D.C. they’re finally getting to work on their real jobs of destroying our lives, our beliefs and our country.

Look, Warnock's gonna Warnock. It is what it is and I can sort of deal with that. Thom Tillis on the other hand, not so much.

After surrendering to Democrats on a myriad of hot-button issues, Senate Republicans may get yet another chance to sell out their base before the year’s end — this time, on a last-minute immigration bill reportedly engineered by North Carolina GOP Sen. Thom Tillis that would provide amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. . .

. . . While it’s unclear whether the Senate plans to take up the bill before the current congressional session ends, Tillis’s last-minute attempt to ram through an amnesty package before Republicans take control of the House of Representatives next month runs contrary to claims issued by his office earlier this year. Back in June, a representative from the North Carolina senator’s office told Fox News there was “not much to negotiate” on immigration until President Joe Biden “enforce[s] immigration laws” and takes action “to end the crisis at the [U.S. southern] border.”

At this rate, the Democrats don't have to rig or otherwise "fortify" elections. With scum like Thom Tillis, no one will show up at the polls anyway.

37 ||Twenty-five people have been arrested in raids across Germany on suspicion of plotting to overthrow the government. […]

An estimated 50 men and women are alleged to have been part of the group, said to have plotted to overthrow the republic and replace it with a new state modelled on the Germany of 1871 – an empire called the Second Reich.

“We don’t yet have a name for this group,” said a spokeswoman for the federal prosecutor’s office. [andy update: Reichsbürgers] The interior minister said it was apparently made up of an organisation “council” and a military arm.

Wednesday’s dawn raids are being described as one of the biggest anti-extremism operations in modern German history. Three thousand officers took part in 150 operations in 11 of Germany’s 16 states, with two people arrested in Austria and Italy.

Almost half of arrests took place in southern states of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria.||

To an eco-totalitarian, there is nothing more hateful and evil than a cost/benefit analysis. Nothing. Dumping crude oil directly onto the coastline by the shipload would be preferable to do a cost/benefit analysis. A cost/benefit analysis, you see, implies that something, at any scale and for any duration, might be more important than the earth-mother.

They pay attention to social-media influencers with Danger Hair and Bondage Gear and enough makeup to paint a house, and to Breadtubers like Vaush and Xanderhal who tell them that they're the last bastion against Hitler Rising Again.

In another instance back in February, the Department of Justice secured guilty pleas from three men accused of plotting to shoot substations across the country with powerful rifles. - Yes, I'm sure the FBI informants outnumbered the so-called conspirators.

The warning came after targeted attacks on the LGBTQIA+ community, most recently a November shooting at a bar in Colorado, but also cited the Jan. 6, 2021, attacks at the U.S. Capitol. - Good job, Rick.

With regards to the NOAA story... the fact of the matter is that the various "elected" officials go to the capitol city to do one thing; grift. FedGov is run by faceless, unelected bureaucrats who have their own agenda(s). Congress has abandoned their oversight role as their personal agenda often aligns with the bureaucracy, especially where grift is involved.

As an aside; the number of Right Whale ship strikes over the last decade or so is a fraction of the number reported previously. Suggesting the issue has been widely resolved through self awareness.

Yet there's an agenda at NOAA that must move forward.

148 the "Elizabeth Warren" link is a good read, and unsurprisingly, the Harvard tax lawyer is a friend to the super-rich

Liz Warren hates billionaires. Just ask the millionaire leftist.

Who actually funds Warren's political ambitions? Our investigation of her political organization reveals that it's billionaires like Bill Gates, George Soros, Jeff Bezos' ex-wife and eBay's Pierre Omidyar. Advisors include Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes. Like her Cherokee heritage, Warren's identity as a crusader against billionaires is fake.

One of the more recent technologies that has not gotten the media notice of things like GPS is Automatic Identification System (AIS). It has been sold as a technology to help ships "see" and avoid each other particularly in bad weather. It is available to virtually every boat that goes offshore but is becoming standard on commercial boats and mandatory on many.

It's very simple to watch ships move, plot their course and monitor their speed without leaving the comfort of your monitor from distance with AIS.

If the airport admin wasn't on the side of the protestors (or were informed by the government that they shouldn't intervene), they wouldn't have been allowed on the tarmac in the first place, and even if they somehow got around security, they would have been removed quickly.

McConnell is losing 3 of his votes, even with all the election losses.

It's about them. It's not about winning or the party. Otherwise they would stop aside for someone with a new vision and the temerity to carry it out.

For the people. Not for the donors.

The last two elections defied all this in the past, and not in a good way.

You just lost the state of Georgia, a formerly red state. That's not a "victory". It's not a sign of anything except defeat. You lost buttercup. You blew enormous opportunities. Step aside and get out of the way.

As others have mentioned, via electronic monitoring.

And really, this is a law that is not meant to be enforced across the board -- it would no doubt be used to target certain groups. So, they start by monitoring specific demographics (say, a state that wants to remove a pesky fishing industry or sportfishing spot for reasons) and then it's quite easy. And you know this would be abused -- China pays off a governor or someone else to go bigtime harass Americans out so that they can takeover the local seafood market.

A better measure might be median rather than mean. Per the NY Post, the median rent is a lot less - $4,100. At $49,200 per year just on rent, that's 66% of the median salary of $74,200. That median salary will net a take-home (after federal, state and local taxes) of about $4,200, leaving the median wage-earner about $100 per month to live on if he lives in the median apartment.

In other words, Manhattan real estate is awfully expensive.

337 Today is Feast of The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary - it is the infallibly defined dogma of the Catholic Church that "God freely chose Mary from all eternity to be the Mother of his Son. In order to carry out her mission she herself was conceived immaculate. This means that, thanks to the grace of God and in anticipation of the merits of Jesus Christ, Mary was preserved from original sin from the first instant of her conception" (Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church). Chosen by God to be the Mother of the Savior and the "New Eve," Mary Immaculate is a type of the Church and the perfect model of holiness for all Christians. Mary under this title is the patroness of the United States of America, and the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is a Holy Day of Obligation.

407 I'd wager the overwhelming number of commercial fishermen vote Democrat. I know they do in New England and I bet it's the same on the coastline in most places. Probably a majority on the recreational space as well.

I bet this will make for some spicy moments going forward. Commercial fishermen are a noisy bunch.

I really want to love the JSDF, but I was going to the Naha airport and went past their one of their bases, which was decked out in Orion (beer brand) lanterns. It's hard to maintain respect after that.

409 389 Re-education Camp not Labor Camp!!!
Posted by: andycanuck (Vwz3I) at December 08, 2022 09:23 AM

No, that's not cool, either, as this article from an LGBTQ website makes clear-

Jack Phillips, a business owner who refused to bake cakes for same-sex weddings, citing his religious beliefs, was required to attend a class so he could become familiar with Colorado anti-discrimination law.

Justice Gorsuch instead called it a “re-education program,” and slammed the state’s Solicitor General, Eric Olson, with it on Monday.

“Mr. Phillips did go through a re-education training program, pursuant to Colorado law, did he not, Mr. Olson?” Gorsuch asked the solicitor general.

Slate’s Mark Joseph Stern, who provided the clip above, warns: “It does not bode well for the future of civil rights law that Gorsuch believes a state imposes ‘reeducation training’ on employers when it reminds them how to comply with nondiscrimination rules.”

Don't know why, but this reminded me of Crystal Gayle.

I think she is probably conservative, and used to hear her on the Art Bell show occasionally; she wrote & sang a nice song about him & his show called "Midnight in the Desert."

426 Next Spring we will begin construction on massive wind farms off the East & West Coast, & the GOM. 26 seperate projects. These will ulitmatley affect commercial shipping lanes, fishing, sea birds & sea life. No one is giving thought to the possible change in weather patterns we will encounter once these new restrictions to wind flow are established. We will simply have to live with whatever destruction results.

427 In early June 1918, O'Keeffe moved to New York[...] Within a month he took the first of many nude photographs of her at his family's apartment while his wife Emmy was away, but she returned while their session was still in progress.

So Stiglitz was having an affair with O'Keeffe and his wife literally walked in on then...Awkward....

Looking at the pictures, Emmy wasn't a bad look woman but also a lot older then O'Keeffe.

Exactly. Bitch McConnell withheld MILLIONs of Trump generated PAC money from candidates the People in their states chose while lobbying for his wife's CCP shipping business.

God bless MTG, Jordan, Gaetz, etc. but the party needs to burn.

The only way this changes is if we quit paying taxes.

433 JJ - just a thought.

But maybe, just MAYBE, the guy who had a Nazi over for dinner isn't a good guy?

Why do you continuously insist on defending Trump? He's at best a fucking self-owning moron. At worst, he absolutely knowingly had a Nazi over to his house for dinner, and doesn't care what people think about that. Are either of those options ok in your book?

Is it possible that Ye's rhetoric is really really bad? Have you considered that? Is it possible that maybe, just MAYBE, that anti-semitism is shitty behavior, and that Trump's having had two of them over to dinner is just one more example of why he's not fucking fit to have your support and admiration?

Maybe this quote from the Post was entirely fair? Maybe?

Consider, please. Consider that maybe you, and people like you, continuously jumping to the defense of Nazis and anti-semites is a bad look for the rest of us. You're painting me with your own reactionary broad brush.

Ye is mentally ill, and a POS. Trump is a dipshit. Move on.
