The Morning Report — 1/23/23

klainbaindeepstate.jpg

Good morning kids. So, I guess the supposition that Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants' chief of staff, and longtime Biden crime family lieutenant and confidante, Ron Klain is the one pulling the skin on the back of his turkey neck and making him talk like a Pocono Mountain Schickelgruber is wrong.

For whatever reason, Klain has suddenly decided to abandon ship, during what some in the media are describing as the greatest most successful administration in American history. Oddly enough, just as this "Document-gate" scandal is heating up. I'm sure that's just a coincidence, right. But the Deep State's got a deep bench, proving once again they are the "Bain" of our existence.

[So-called quote-unquote "president"] Joe Biden’s new chief of staff, Jeff Zients, is a centimillionaire businessman who, like the failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, got his start as a consultant at Bain Consulting. (For Romney and Bain, in Biden's telling, that was just a pit stop on the road to putting Americans "through hell and back.")

Zients will take over for Ron Klain in February. The former head of the White House’s [Chinese] COVID response, Zients amassed a vast fortune working for Bain & Company and other management consulting firms. But at Bain, according to the Wall Street Journal, Zients "fell in love with Bain's culture, teamwork … and analytical rigor." By age 35, his estimated net worth was nearly $150 million.

Zients's appointment is riddled with irony. Biden’s role in the 2012 presidential election, when he served as former president Barack Obama’s running mate, was to attack Romney, the Republican nominee. Like Zients, Romney began his business career at Bain & Company before serving as CEO of Bain Capital, a private equity company he cofounded with Bill Bain.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Mitt tortured a homo classmate, put his dog on the car roof and per Harry Reid's secret source at the IRS was a tax cheater. Blah blah blah. Now, square that last paragraph with this little nugget:

Before joining the Biden [junta] as the White House [Chinese] Coronavirus Response Coordinator in the early days of Biden’s [so-called quote-unquote "presidency"], he also previously served in President Barack Obama’s administration in numerous positions. The roles he has held include director of the National Economic Council and assistant to the president for economic policy, in addition to serving in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Wait, what? An entire year ripping Bain Capital and Obama picks this guy to join the team? After everything we've been through since the Trump era, this should not be a head-scratcher but just one more bit of evidence that the America we thought we knew is no more, and likely since the end of the Second World War if not the First, probably never was.

So, it certainly seems as if The State which is "deep" in terms of its reach as opposed to being hidden, wants Biden gone. Regardless of whether these revelations hurt or hinder them and their narrative, or if some other way to get rid of him might have been better from their point of view, the writing surely is on the wall for Biden. The big question of course is why? The GOP is a clusterfuck of a joke, as is the prospect of victory at the polls given the now legalized, institutionalized and impossible-to-reverse system of rigging in key swing districts and states that favors Democrats. Or am I wrong about that and Biden in '24, if he has two brain cells to rub together, would get wiped out by Trump, DeSantis or even George Santos?

It doesn't add up. But we're still in the HOV lane to Hell.

It’s hard to shake the sense that Joe Biden’s classified document scandal, like Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago saga, is a lot of hype. Trump’s “crime” turned out to be a lot more trivial than the breathless whispers and leaks suggested. It turns out Trump was keeping presidential records as personal trophies, which is just about the least surprising thing ever. It’s unclear what Biden was doing with White House papers in his house, but unless there was some malicious or pecuniary interest, is it really such a big deal? 

Many have speculated that there is something more going on, that Democrats are taking Biden out, like yesterday’s trash. 

If the Justice Department can pick and choose the president, then we don’t really have a “democracy” at all but an oligarchy with a Praetorian guard. Of course, many suspect this has been the case for some time. We all saw how Trump was sandbagged with a bogus criminal probe into Russian “collusion,” and the witch-hunt is ongoing. It’s worth considering whether the Justice Department, by going after Biden, is creating a pretense of fairness to justify indicting Trump. This would be a truly egregious interference in the democratic process. . .

. . . Richard Nixon was the first president to be forced out of power by permanent Washington and the media, after winning reelection in the biggest landslide in U.S. history, no less. Is Biden getting the Watergate treatment? The media’s sudden interest in the contents of his Delaware garage feels disingenuous, given all of the corruption they have overlooked until now.

Biden is a dubiously elected, corrupt hypocrite, but a scenario in which he is removed over contrived media outrage, and legal pressure would be a Pyrrhic victory for the Right, which has little to gain from an even more powerful and entrenched deep state. A Justice Department that can remove an ineffective puppet can neutralize any resistance to bureaucratic rule, whether from Trump or whoever would fill his shoes.

 

Speaking of "Tricky Dick". . .

Something's happening here.  Last month Tucker Carlson made the case for the CIA's direct involvement in President Kennedy's assassination.  This month he has made the case for the CIA's direct involvement in President Nixon's forced resignation.  Tying the two events together, Carlson outlines a chief motive for the Agency's alleged actions against Nixon by highlighting a recorded conversation between Nixon and then-CIA Director Richard Helms in which Nixon told Helms to his face that he knew "who shot John," an accusation from the president that the director answered with telling silence. 

In publicly prosecuting the Intelligence Community for taking down Nixon, Carlson notes that four of the five Watergate burglars worked for the CIA, that young metro reporter Bob Woodward had been a naval officer at the Pentagon who "worked regularly with the intel agencies" and "had a top-secret clearance," and that Woodward's infamous Deep Throat source for his Watergate news stories, FBI Associate Director Mark Felt, had run the FBI's illicit counterintelligence program specifically designed to discredit and disrupt American political organizations.

Furthermore, Carlson points out that Nixon's replacement, Gerald Ford, the only unelected president in American history, had no achievements to justify his rapid rise from forgettable congressman to White House occupant in the space of eight months, aside from his service on the Warren Commission, which had "absolved the CIA of responsibility for President Kennedy's murder."  When unelected federal bureaucrats forced Nixon's vice president, Spiro Agnew, to resign in late '73 for tax evasion, Democrats in Congress "gave Nixon no choice but Ford."  The next summer, the Intelligence Community replaced an adversarial Nixon, arguably the most popularly elected president in U.S. history, with a rubber-stamp for the CIA. . .

. . . Kennedy's assassination and Nixon's forced resignation occurred a half-century ago, and plenty of people have disputed the American government's official telling of those events since they first occurred.  Only now, however, is one of the most popular hosts in the small world of news commentary dedicating his time (and reputation) to throwing down the gauntlet against America's Deep State.  Why?  Well, that relatively new and disparaging epithet — Deep State — tells a big part of the tale by reflecting an "awakening" American cynicism and a sizable collapse in Americans' trust in their own government.  It should be a big deal for someone of Carlson's stature to accuse the Intelligence Community of multiple coups d'état; that he does so suggests that he feels the American people have begun to fundamentally shift in their understanding of and relationship to the federal government. . .

. . . The government's illegitimate exercise of power goes to the heart of the question: who really runs America?  For most of American history, Americans proud of their nation's history and its dedication to individual rights, liberty, republican virtue, and respect for democracy would have answered, "The people."  Now, however, they are beginning to wonder whether something much darker and more nefarious has been in charge all along. . .

. . . If American elections mean so little because the Deep State's power is so great, then things must change.

Read the whole thing. And agreed about "things must change." The question is "how?"

The cold, hard truth is this illegitimate State has finally overthrown whatever vestige of the American republic that had remained before 2020 and taken over. The bureaucracy is as powerful as ever and with trillions in borrowed, printed and stolen taxpayer money continually thrown at it, probably invincible. Add to it their allies in the C-suites of the private sector and it certainly looks hopeless.

The illusion of regular order, vis a vis debates in Congress and now legally rigged elections makes things seem normal but of course, that’s the illusion.

As our freedoms and our ability to feed, house and clothe ourselves disappears, this junta will only lash out and clamp down harder.

There is no way out, except some sort of radical uprising. Peacefully, I pray. But as history shows, that doesn’t always work out and the outcome is not guaranteed.

Yes. I don't know why so many on our side continue to try and equate what Trump did with what Biden did when they are clearly not the same. Presidents have complete declassification authority. Vice Presidents and Senators do not. What Trump did was not a crime. What Biden did is a crime.

And while Trump does not have a history of using his family to sell access and influence to foreign dictators and oligarchs Biden does. And despite what the media is spewing Biden's lawyers did not willing contact the DOJ and admit he had classified documents, the NARA IG told the DOJ.

Posted by: fd at January 23, 2023 07:58 AM (iayUP)

62 I remember being a grad student in the 70's and listening to a lot of really smart guys from the Middle East who ranted and raved about the CIA fucking over their countries. This made the US evil in their eyes. I attributed it to being a defensive reaction to finding out that life in America was so much better than where they came from. None of them ever went back after getting their doctorate.

The CIA has been running things for a long time. Even Reagan ended up coving for them. I'm sure you all remember that giant fiasco.

Justice had previously let Mr. Biden’s aides and lawyers do the searching.

96 Earlier this week, Variety ran an atypical (for the liberal outlet) story bemoaning the film festival landscape. The article exposed how most are so fearful of social justice blowback they've begun rejecting films with "problematic" content.

This statement really grinds my gears (quoting Peter Griffin).

It's been years since a film festival would chance a Christian film, or a pro-free speech film. Did Amanda Milius get to see her film at Sundance? NFW. That "problematic content" has been unwelcome for years.

Festivals today aren't rejecting films with "problematic content", they have always done that if the content is even slightly less than fully Rob Reiner liberal.

What is different today is they are rejecting liberal films with insufficiently radical material. The problem is plenty more extreme than the article states.

I don't have to assume that. That is one possibility. Another is that we've crossed the Rubicon and so it logically has to happen. Whether planned with some fixed end date of power or not (my inclination would be not, for various practical reasons), the long marchers and police staters finally went far enough that too many people noticed. They got too many levers. Things become a binary choice when that happens: give up and backtrack (crisis of confidence), or go for everything.

"Crisis of confidence" rarely happens. Acceleration is the baseline.

It would be tough to know where to begin. There's no sound byte way to discuss many of these things without sounding like a lunatic. People like short, easily digested answers. Sometimes things really are simple, but they might take a while to explain.

What I can say is everything is a lot stranger than you can imagine, if even half of it is true. Sort of like the Kennedy murder in Dallas - there is so much stuff out there, it prevents seeing what actually happened.

The government itself started a comprehensive program to create assassins who could be "mind controlled" as far back as the 1940s and 1950s, hypnosis, drugs, surgeries, and "synthetic telepathy", mind reading, remote viewing, lots of wacky stuff.

Yuuuuup. It will keep coming this quarter. What I am looking for is whether it accelerates or slows as the companies turn over fiscal years and fiscal quarters (companies often like to take big personnel-related financial hits at the end of a quarter or year). Right now, I am not confident calling a tech recession. High tech went on a hiring binge during COVID and payrolls grew way, way too fast and far too many places. I think a lot of these layoffs are undoing the absurd and unjustifiable payroll growth during that period.

If it continues, though, then "tech recession" is here. I think it probably is, but the recent big layoffs are not directly related, I don't think. Not yet.

Every drip, drip, drip is being "leaked" at strategic times to strategic reporters. Goal get Biden out before real hell breaks lose regarding China or Ukraine. They , deep state/Dems can then blame him and family while maintaining their power and positions. Sounds conspiratorial but nothing else fits the facts

I can think of three possible explanations:
1. They want Biden out before the end of his term (I doubt it)
2. They don't want Biden running in '24 (possible)
3. They got wind that someone *else* knew about the doc caches and was going to make a play, so they decided to front-run it and lock it all up in official investigations before the other party could move.

There are others, but I don't think it's at all clear that they want Brandon gone right away.

And yet President Trump endorsed Ronna McDaniel's right-hand man. Between this, his support of McCarthy and his continued support of the clot shot, he's lost me completely.

Just to parse it for everyone on Twitter: Whatley is Ronna Romney McDaniel's handpick for her co-chair. It is Trump signaling he's all in for Ronna and status quo at RNC.

He's a non-political Democrat, focused mostly on business, if such a thing is possible in America today.

My friend thinks Zients is in place to manage the administration while Biden eats his ice cream cones, and the party thrashes around looking for a replacement for the 2024 ticket. Another sign of "What the fuck do we do now?" Junta political worries.

--

It's tied to Davos, WEF, and everything else. The one-world quasi-government (I think they're saying "shareholders" now to pretend it's something else), and the 2030 goal goes back to the UN's 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment & Development in Rio de Janeiro. From the UN, right there out in the open:

"One of the major results of the UNCED Conference was Agenda 21, a daring program of action calling for new strategies to invest in the future to achieve overall sustainable development in the 21st century. Its recommendations ranged from new methods of education, to new ways of preserving natural resources and new ways of participating in a sustainable economy."

199 VRE runs fed gov hours - so if you stay in VA near it, you need to be on the train by 8-9am or so...and you can only come back at 1pm or then 3:30pm or later...and you can't go in weekends or evenings, which is okay, b/c you'd rather be in VA at nightfall...

You can eat and drink on VRE and they have bathrooms and train conductors, so it is a nice experience to get in and out of the city, as long as you can work with its schedule and location.

The flu shot real world effectiveness is rather interesting.

It is low because the flu vaccine mutates so quickly. So even if they pick the "right strain" and give it to you, when this year's flu comes out of China and eventually gets to you it is different enough your immune system still won't be ready for it.

If we wanted to actually reduce the spread of flu the best solution would be to embargo China.

258 Gerald Ford also admitted, decades later, to editing the Warren Commission's drawing of JFK's autopsy injuries. He moved the location of the entrance wound near JFK's right shoulder blade to the base of the back of the neck.

This was done to make that back wound line up with the throat wound (which was an entrance wound, not an exit wound). Thus quashing official forensic evidence, along with Specter's Magic Bullet theory, that there were multiple shooters.

JFK was shot from the front, the bullet passing thru the limo's windshield and hitting him in the throat. He was shot in the back, right shoulder, with a low-angle (ground-level, not 6th floor) round that didn't have much punch, only shallowly penetrating his back.

I tend to agree but neither of these is a good outcome for them. Biden isn't going to get any smarter or more competent over the next 2 years and the economy is going nowhere but down.

They had to go to extreme measures to install Biden including rioting, fake impeachments, constant media trashing of Trump despite his successes and a pandemic complete with lockdown and cratering the economy. It's going to be even more difficult to plausibly install a Democrat in 2024 than it was with Joe in the basement.

One thing I learned while working for FedGov is that there are always competing agendas.

It's possible some within the IC/Deep State share a common goal, but it's also possible they severely disagree on how to get there.

293 Article says company is giving severance of between $38 to $48 million. So with 400 laid off, that averages to $95,000 plus per employee. Cost of health insurance coverage seems to be included in that number. Company says it amounts to five months' pay and benefits. Still, it seems pretty generous for an industry in a "bloodbath." I've never had a job that would have been this generous. What gives?

It depends on who is being fired and how the severance compensation is structured.

I don't know about Spotify specifically, but benefits (and severance) tend to be very generous at the big Silicon Valley firms. Including benefits would be very expensive if this is also the case at Spotify. Severance is usually paid out like salary, including payroll taxes. The rate described is $218k per year. Assuming total carriage cost is 130% of salary, that implies about $175k average salary, which is high but not inconceivable, especially if if it's hitting middle management or higher.

Persuasion wins, but it’s not always rational. The anti-vaxxers didn’t have a ‘rational’ case, by Adams’s lights, but they did dissuade many from what was eventually considered an unreasonable risk. Sometimes the crowd is right.

Eric B. @NeverDraftRBs · 12h Replying to @spjk
Adams current mistake is not acknowledging the anti-vaxxers had a rational take. 1) New technology; 2) No LT testing; 3) COVID had 99%+ survival rate, higher if you aren’t obese or with other co-morbidities; 4) Never made sense to release on large scale

Even the most pacifist Democrat would be wanting to take Fidel Castro out, and every Anti-Communist Republican would definitely want Communist Cuba conquered and Fidel and company killed. We attack Cuba, and what does Russia do? Khruschev and Russia has to declare war on the US. NATO declares war on Russia (does not matter, since the US will be attacking from Europe anyway). Remember the US had hundreds of Minuteman, Titan, and Polaris missiles armed with H-bombs. Worse, LeMay and SAC had thousands of bombers, and every B-52 had 20-30 MEGATONS of bombs on board, and mission plans to attack Russia, China and the Warsaw Pact. Russia had similar weapons.

I was watching a bio-researcher reviewing a zombie film. His review was from 2018...and given everything that happened it was hilarious.

The plot of the movie, IIRC, was that a company invents an anti-cancer drug and without much testing releases it and obviously many, many people take it. The problem? It turns you into a zombie.

So the researcher reviewing the movie says something like, "No way would the medical establishment ever let some new experimental drug out to some significant percentage of the world population without years, if not decades of testing. I mean it would be completely irresponsible if you don't know the long term effects! LOL this movie is stupid."

I have no idea what their BS reasons will be. They will dream-up a lot of them, and will argue that the problems are caused by humans. So their fix will be - I'll give you one guess.

No novelist could ever cook up a more bizarre cast of characters than those found in the JFK assassination. Weird-O.

No. He's very intelligent, period. That doesn't make him infallible, even on major subjects. The best people blunder.

If you read his books and listen to his talks, it's clear he's pretty smart. He got that vaxxes wrong and he's finally been doing a mea culpa these last few days.

Look at many other things Adams has said over multiple subjects and you'll see a constant pattern or rationality. Unfortunately, we live in a world where rationality is not the only or best card to always play.

338 So the researcher reviewing the movie says something like, "No way would the medical establishment ever let some new experimental drug out to some significant percentage of the world population without years, if not decades of testing. I mean it would be completely irresponsible if you don't know the long term effects! LOL this movie is stupid."

342 The Fox weatherman is a microcosm of the media in general. He downplays his assault as being the price you pay for living in New York City. With that attitude he deserved to get beaten. And to no one's surprise he also dared not to state the race of the "kids". Which doesn't matter. Evil is evil.

343 The man was found in a white van slumped over at the steering wheel dead. And the usual suspects blame “bigotry” without waiting for the facts...

Make no mistake, they're so desperate to put white and gun violence in the same headline that this is what we get. Ask yourself a question; would they have done the same if it was a beige taurus or a brown camry, or a black sedan?
Or would they say he was found slumped over dead in his vehicle? You know the answer is that they're desperate to associate "white" with mass murder, by any means.

Yep. They covered this in the "JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass" documentary released last year by Oliver Stone. Whereas the original 1990s movie "JFK" was based on documents available at the time, this new documentary was based on all the new documents which have been declassified over the last 30 years.

In "JFK Revisited", they talk about the fact that it was not possible for Oswald to be in most of the places he was supposed to have been. One big one was the staircase of the book depository. Two female employees walked down the same staircase that Oswald was supposed to have walked down and neither of them saw him.

After the Zabruder film ("back and to the left") and the "magic bullet" theory, that was enough for me to know the government narrative was all bullshit.

346 Good morning, all. Thank you J.J. "There is no way out, except some sort of radical uprising. Peacefully, I pray..."

Nixon being forced from office was simply their unveiling. They've never stepped back from transforming the country.
#Indivisible Playbook: Our Campaign: We need to hold MAGA Republicians accountable for their extremism. That means forcing that extremism to the fringe and ensuring they pay the political price.

Just being a registered Republician is enough to be classified as MAGA in some circles, and that's the fear they want - and intend - to instill. This is where we're speeding to, the grand & total retransformation of nation, whether by 2026 or maybe 2041, two hundred fifty years after 1776 or after the Bill of Rights was fully ratified. IDK, but I imagine there are target dates.

Zients is just another face; more important is his wife. International flavor. FJB was only going to be 1 term. There's been ongoing lawsuits for him to release his papers from U. of Delaware. Everything settles & he & his go out on top. Then KH & King Philip the unaccountable?

347 Personally I think the JFK assassination was an intelligence op. It was run by the Cuban Intelligence folks, after they found out JFK’s CIA were trying to kill Fidel Castro. The Cubans picked Lee Harvey Oswald a former defector to Russia who was a Communist Cuba Sympathizer for their weapon.

Posted by: rd at January 23, 2023 09:26 AM

In "JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass", they show that there is evidence that whoever executed the assassination plot in Dallas had setup a similar assassination plot setup for Chicago and I think one other city. 4 people were arrested in Chicago and they apparently had a similar patsy setup like they did with Oswald in Dallas. The Kennedy Administration cancelled the Chicago trip when they found out about the plot.

355 "The cold, hard truth is this illegitimate State has finally overthrown whatever vestige of the American republic that had remained before 2020 and taken over. The bureaucracy is as powerful as ever and with trillions in borrowed, printed and stolen taxpayer money continually thrown at it, probably invincible. Add to it their allies in the C-suites of the private sector and it certainly looks hopeless."
_____________________

If any nation with a bureaucratic dictatorship ever fell from inside, I've never heard of it.

One possible road out of this is using our Federalist foundations. States don't need to secede, they just need a good dose of Irish Democracy, i.e. simply routing around national laws and setting up their own free systems. Florida is making a pretty good run at this.
