The Morning Report — 5/26/23

pollutedwatersmax.jpg

Good morning, kids. With all the serious things going on, and we'll get to those momentarily, I think some good news and a bit of levity are always welcome to kick things off. That said, dig this glittering jewel of shocking cluelessness and stupidity:

According to a recent report from Politico, Democrats have grown frustrated with Biden for taking what they felt was too much of a hands-off approach when dealing with the debt ceiling fight, with some even expressing disbelief at the thought of him leaving for the weekend.

“It’s time to bring the [so-called quote-unquote "president"] off the bench or bring somebody off the bench. No one’s responding to anything. Kevin [McCarthy’s] consistently on message,” said one House Democrat. “We have the Oval Office. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“They need to use the [ill-gotten, usurped] power of the presidency. I don’t buy this argument that [public silence] helps the negotiation,” said Congressional Black Caucus Chair Steven Horsford (D-NV). “I need the American people to know that Democrats are here fighting, working, prepared to reach an agreement to avoid a default and only the White House, the president, can explain that in this moment.”

Upon hearing that Biden would be away for the weekend, one Democrat lawmaker outright called it “stupid.”

“Please tell me that’s not true,” said the lawmaker. “You’re going to see a caucus that’s so pissed if he’s stupid enough to do that.”

Emphasis mine. "Say it ain't so, Joe!" Really?! At this stage, Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants can barely say "dog," "cat" or "Jill" let alone put a coherent sentence together from a Dr. Seuss book without turning it into gibberish. Where the hell have you been, Steven Horsford, for the past three freaking years? And you're calling him stupid?! If you're desperate to bring in "somebody off the bench" maybe you should get your lazy ass the hell over to Kalorama and talk to whoever is pulling the strings.

On a positive note, I'd like to think that this indicates that Kevin McCarthy and the GOP are actually standing firm with the demand for spending cuts, even if perhaps all this is as I suspect kabuki-bukkake theater. We shall see. But for this jerk to not realize that the guy they put in there is a vegetable is just beyond belief to me.

In any case, we go from the ridiculous to the sublime. While everyone's attention has been focused on this, we forget that it's Oracle of Delphi Season, i.e. that time of the year when 9 very flawed individuals in black robes get to decide the fate of 330 million people with rulings from the Supreme Court. However, this time, they managed to get one right. And it's a big one.

The Supreme Court voted 9-0, which means unanimous, to narrow the EPA’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS).

The 9-0 vote applied to the merits of the case:

The case centered on Michael and Chantell Sackett, two Idaho residents whom the EPA prohibited from building a home near a wetland years ago, citing the Clean Water Act (CWA) of 1972.

“The EPA ordered the Sacketts to restore the site, threatening penalties of over $40,000 per day,” Alito’s majority opinion stated. “The EPA classified the wetlands on the Sacketts’ lot as ‘waters of the United States’ because they were near a ditch that fed into a creek, which fed into Priest Lake, a navigable, intrastate lake. The Sacketts sued, alleging that their property was not ‘waters of the United States.'”

The ruling ultimately held that the federal government’s WOTUS definition must be restricted to a water source with a “continuous surface connection” to major bodies of water.

The court split 5-4, determining “how the federal government should go about defining water sources.”

So remember. The overall decision is 9-0. SCOTUS unanimously reined in the EPA. All justices. All nine of them, including the leftists.

And yet, Cuck Schemer, the filthy criminal shyster from New York also known as Chuck Schumer Tweeted this:

This MAGA Supreme Court is continuing to erode our country’s environmental laws.Make no mistake—this ruling will mean more polluted water, and more destruction of wetlands. We’ll keep fighting to protect our waters.

Chuck, baby. NINE to NOTHING. Your four Commie stooges sell you out or something? Pfft. You know which waters of the United States are the most polluted? MAXINE. Clean that toxic shit-hole up and you'll earn the praise of a grateful nation.

Although the two cases are not directly related, this ruling hopefully is another positive sign that the disastrous Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council ruling of 1984 that really supercharged an already feral bureaucracy to have even more control over our lives could also be on the Roe to extinction.

Justice Neil Gorsuch, whose mother ironically was involved in the original 1984 Chevron decision as President Ronald Reagan’s head of the Environmental Protection Agency, wrote in November that the court “should acknowledge forthrightly that Chevron did not undo, and could not have undone, the judicial duty to provide an independent judgment of the law’s meaning.”

Gorsuch has written elsewhere: “Maybe the time has come to face the behemoth” of the administrative state.

. . . and choke it to death like a psycho on a New York subway car. My embellishment to Gorsuch.

Killing Chevron v. NRDC would indeed have far reaching consequences in terms of reining in the State. At least on paper, considering that perhaps since the end of the Second World War, and for sure since the coming of Obama and the Left's reaction to the Trump miracle. we no longer are a nation of laws but of men. That translates into every agency, bureau and department, law enforcement and the intel community being its most egregious and visible manifestation but not the only one, as illustrated in yesterday's editorial by a weaponized Department of Education (and many of these agencies are literally weaponized with caches of firearms and other military equipment)

If Christopher Wray's essentially flipping the bird at the House by refusing to hand over documents pertaining to the Biden Crime Family is any indication, the rule of a just and stable law is indeed dead and gone. Worse, anyone who they perceive as an enemy will be eliminated by any and every means at their disposal.

The Biden regime’s staggeringly corrupt FBI has spies in Catholic Churches to hunt for “domestic terrorism,” and now it has come to light that aiding it in the dirty work of framing pro-life Catholics as dangerous “extremists” is none other than the massively discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which uses its immense war chest to stigmatize and demonize legitimate groups on the Right by lumping them in with the likes of the KKK and neo-Nazis. For a wealthy and unscrupulous private organization to do that is one thing, but for the feds to endorse it and partner with that organization is quite another.

That does, however, seem to be what is happening. The Daily Signal reported Sunday that the FBI “appears, at least briefly, to have joined the Southern Poverty Law Center’s attempt to demonize Roman Catholics who follow the church’s teachings on marriage and who celebrate the Latin Mass.” Such Roman Catholics are among the least likely people on the planet to endorse the Leftist establishment’s obsession with deviance and perversion, and so it’s easy to see why they have been singled out for such treatment.

One of those Catholics, Michael J. Matt, editor of a feisty traditionalist Catholic newspaper called The Remnant and producer of Remnant TV, noted that his organization, which is not remotely connected with violence or terrorism, was listed on a “leaked FBI memo.” Matt also pointed out that the FBI and SPLC were showing signs of laziness, as Matt’s organization was listed along with other Catholic groups that he pointed out were “defunct.”

This was, Matt said, an example the “FBI phoning it in”: its list of “radical-traditional Catholic hate groups” came from a 2007 list compiled by the SPLC’s Heidi Beirich and Rhonda Brownstein. Matt asked incredulously: “They took Heidi Beirich and Rhonda Brownstein’s word for it, from 2007?!” He added: “There has been an explosion of traditional Catholic groups since Pope Benedict XVI brought back the Latin Mass. None of the new groups who are in positions of real influence are targeted in the memo.” That’s good, but the fact that the FBI is working with the SPLC and targeting law-abiding citizens because it disapproves of their religious beliefs is disquieting enough.

What’s more, the Daily Signal notes that the SPLC “has branded mainstream conservative and Christian nonprofits ‘hate groups,’ placing them on a map with chapters of the Ku Klux Klan.” This includes Jihad Watch and the David Horowitz Freedom Center, which have committed no offense other than standing for human rights for all people. The Signal goes on to note that “former employees have condemned the ‘hate’ labeling as a ‘highly profitable scam’ tracing back to the co-founder’s talents as a fundraiser. In 2019, the SPLC fired that co-founder amid a racial discrimination and sexual harassment scandal, the full truth of which has yet to be revealed.”

The FBI apparently sees no problem with all that. Under questioning from Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) back in March, Gestapo chief Merrick Garland insisted that “the Justice Department does not do that,” that is, send spies into parishes, “and does not, uh, um, do investigations based on religion.” But Garland was, of course, lying. The feds did have informants in Catholic churches, snooping around and looking for evidence of that domestic terror threat that the Biden regime keeps insisting is the worst such threat we face today. Nor has there been any indication that they’ve taken these spies out of the pews.

Of course, the "swarthy" "south Asian" dude with a Nazi flag in the back of a U-Haul truck that drove into a White House gate at like 5MPH is suddenly off the radar.

Again, it's not just the FBI but in this case, the DHS.

A new report has exposed the federal government’s taxpayer-funded collaboration with universities and nongovernment organizations (NGOs) to associate Turning Point USA and other conservative organizations with Nazi ideology and terrorism.

The Media Research Center (MRC) exposed a Department of Homeland Security program that has been weaponized against Christians and conservatives. The MRC’s report exposes the DHS as one of the main drivers of the “extremism” narrative adopted by nearly every liberal activist and used to demonize the right and justify violence against conservatives. . .

. . . According to the MRC, information in the report was procured through several Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and “directly from DHS grant recipients and other related organizations revealing the true and nefarious nature” of the federal government’s actions.

One such recipient was the University of Dayton, which the MRC stated was “among the most radical grantees” awarded “$352,109 to create the PREVENTS-OH program, which promised to draw on the expertise of the University of Dayton faculty to fight domestic violent extremism and hate movements.”

The university’s grant application, approved by the DHS, contained a graphic comparing mainstream conservative organizations such as Turning Point USA, PragerU, Breitbart, the National Rifle Association, and more to extremist groups like The Base, described by Fox News as a “neo-Nazi paramilitary group,” and the Daily Stormer, “a pro-Nazi publication.”

The PREVENTS-OH initiative also hosts seminars to advance the liberal operative agenda and to train audience members to participate in illicit actions meant to “destabilize” political movements.

Michael Loadenthal, a guest lecturer at one such seminar, Research Fellow at the University of Cincinnati, and self-described Antifa member, “explain[ed] in detail how to create dummy accounts on free speech social media platforms like Telegram, Gab and Rumble” according to MRC, with the desire to undermine conservative platforms and act as instigators.

Loadenthal led this seminar with DHS agent Joseph Masztalics, who seemingly agreed with and approved of the tactics being strategized in the seminar. Loadenthal encouraged the audience to participate in de-platforming, the act of denying conservative organizations and individuals “any sort of public sphere access” and “denying them the ability to speak.”
The tactics employed would make Saul Alinsky blush, as Loadenthal admits, they are not always above board. “A lot of the things we are doing are illegal,” he explained to the audience. “What I’m saying, what I’m telling you, a lot of it is, involves breaking the law. And this is what the FBI will say. I’ve had many conversations with the FBI about this.”

Loadenthal argued that to successfully fulfill all that their ideology demands, liberals must “shut down” conservative websites, “close [conservative’s] meetings,” and “prevent them from assembling in public,” — a tactic TPUSA’s student-led chapters are all too familiar with.

Meanwhile, a man whom the Capitol PD held the doors open for and committed the heinous crime of putting his feet up on Malig-Nancy Pelosi's desk just got handed an 18-year sentence in federal prison while the sick racialist bint who held a machete to a NY Post reporter's neck then chased him down in the streets while threatening him got let out of jail to enjoy a meal at a local Burger King.

It's enough to make you want to choke a Michael Jackson impersonator.

"Splinter the CIA, NSA, and FBI into a thousand pieces and scatter them into the winds." Couldn't agree more with those very sage words from that truly great American patriot - - Jack Dorsey?

Wait, the guy who literally worked hand in hand with the Junta to censor anything even remotely critical of Biden in the run-up to the 2020 election as well as the theft and J-6 in the aftermath? So, okay, is Jack Dorsey angling to be RFK Jr.'s running mate or what the hell is this really all about? I mean, this is the moral equivalent of Father Coughlin supporting the formation of the State of Israel.

See you tomorrow on the Hobby Thread. Be there. Aloha.

And have a wonderful and blessed Memorial Day weekend. Say a prayer for those who gave their lives for our country, beg their forgiveness for what it's become, and for the strength and resolve to avenge their memory.

They tell you where their power is. They know the nebulous "environmental" silliness is the key to controlling literally everything from cars to homes to cooking. And it accomplishes little to nothing, because the United States isn't where anything significant occurs. But it can be used to wrap chains around any and everything so that they control it.

You, in other words.

Understanding Muslims is key.

99% don't want to hold the knife that is used to slice your throat because you're a filthy non-Muslim, but that doesn't mean they don't believe your throat shouldn't be sliced open. Only that they don't want to hold the knife.

And the 1% that disagrees? If they speak out they're killed, or if they're lucky they're just pushed out of the group and ostracized and hated and attacked for the rest of their lives until they're killed.

I don't think they believe they have a mandate. I think they just understand how to rule, and that politics in America lends itself especially to that sort of thing since one side still wants to adhere to the Constitution and believes that both sides are in pursuit of roughly the same outcome.

The left knows that EVERYTHING is the Overton window, all the time. And they act like it. It's why they constantly and quickly win. Even when they appear to lose, they've still shifted society over far enough that the new conversation starts far to the left of where things were.

The end will always justify the means with them. We play by the rules and they not only don't, but want to clear the playing field or even nuke the stadium if they have to.

Even the 4 commie stooges voted to kill the thing and they still don't accept it.

If they can rig elections, persecute political enemies and ignore laws as and when they choose, they'll ignore this as well.

54 “It’s time to bring the president off the bench or bring somebody off the bench. No one’s responding to anything. Kevin [McCarthy’s] consistently on message,” said one House Democrat. “We have the Oval Office. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

"Or bring somebody off the bench." What an interesting statement. Who? I mean, this is the president's job. Of course, it's pretty clear that we don't actually have a president but this is rarely acknowledged in the press. It is not directly acknowledged here, but it's implied.

Sorry, but that's not how this works. You have somebody charge or you have nobody in charge. We're in category two. The warring factions are doubtlessly trying to sort this out so they can cobble together a list of demands that *must* be met for a deal, but it's taking a long time. I thought they got there last week when Biden suddenly started meeting with McCarthy, but it's clear now that they had no real starting point for negotiations. The rule by committee that defines this fake administration appears to yet again be proving itself unable to function with a time constraint.

We shall see. But for this jerk to not realize that the guy they put in there is a vegetable is just beyond belief to me.
++++
They are standing firm. They will stand firm until the "government shutdown" happens, and then they will stand firm until about a third of the way through the extra time that Treasury can buy with budgetary jiggery-pokery (usually about a week or so). Then there will be the "compromise" that gives Leviathan everything it wants while extracting some meaningless concessions. Then everything is back to normal and both sides simultaneously claim both victory and defeat. They finish it off with a 5x match offer and the players retire to their respective clubhouses for booze and hookers.

101 Killing Chevron v. NRDC would indeed have far reaching consequences in terms of reining in the State. At least on paper, considering that perhaps since the end of the Second World War, and for sure since the coming of Obama and the Left's reaction to the Trump miracle. we no longer are a nation of laws but of men. That translates into every agency, bureau and department, law enforcement and the intel community being its most egregious and visible manifestation but not the only one, as illustrated in yesterday's editorial by a weaponized Department of Education
++++
Part of me fears that the obvious and long-coming SCOTUS decisions like this one or even a reversal of Chevron are coming now precisely because they don't matter. They'll do what they want anyway and know that they'll get away with it. The law no longer matters much, and so SCOTUS rulings aren't particularly important.

As has been noted, he sounds like a policy wonk, this moment does not call for a policy wonk, it calls for a maniac.

He won't even win his own state.

And not because the people of Florida don't like him, they more than likely will, ironically, not vote for him because they don't want him to leave.

We should be united against the evil around us. For some reason, 80% agreement is not enough. It is a weakness in our culture, but it has a long history in human affairs. See Greece, Italy, Constantinople, China, etc.

I aver that robust Christianity is an apogee of human culture. For the Nihilists and barbarians, it is the biggest obstacle in their tiny minds.

This may why they are so hellbent on maintaining power in the White House. The Executive Branch, through its numerous offices, has ALL the power in this country. They cannot allow that to fall into the "wrong" (i.e., Republican) hands ever again. They're even OK with the Congress switching parties, so long as it never reaches a supermajority status in either House. But NOT the Presidency.

In the past I would have agreed with you but we seem to be moving into a different place. Republicans routinely lost these debt ceiling battles because they suck at messaging and the left owns the media. All they needed was solid messaging from the White House or Congress depending on which side they were holding.

Poll after poll is now showing the country is pretty split on this fight which is pretty remarkable in and of itself. The country might finally be waking up to the fact that our government has a spending problem or they might have tuned out the media or both but something has changed.

And Biden's disengagement on this issue while contrasted with McCarthy's steady messaging for the past 3 months is a stark contrast. POTUS heading for the beach while in the middle of what he calls a national crisis is just reinforcing what everyone can see, Biden is an empty suit.

A court had to be able to strike down a “tyranny of the majority”. Do I don’t see an alternative to Marbury.

201 Jack Dorsey he did seem to do a weird 180 after he left Twitter. He was someone who never could be nailed down in public on any corporate policy, ever, but always did Right by the Party behind the scenes.

As soon as he left Twitter? Suddenly he's making definitive statements supporting the Musk takeover, and bashing the IC.

I don't know Dorsey. Maybe he's just a disgruntled ex-employee. But... maybe he was being surrounded and managed by his subordinates at that company. Maybe that damned Indian PR whore who was tied to his hip at all times was his handler. And now that he's free of them, he's gotten based. It's... possible, I guess?

Biden is polling right around bubonic plague territory threatening to dip into nuclear fallout. A majority of his own party thinks he is too old and doesn't want him to run. We can't on the one hand hammer our side when they don't fight and then not acknowledge a clear win when they do. And right now we are winning this fight bigly.

Yup. It's why the move to block off Rushmore during the Obama shutdown was so audacious and offensive. "There's no money to keep this park open, but we can find hundreds of thousands of dollars on short notice to construct barriers to prevent anyone from so much as gazing upon our closed park, and we'll get them built faster than the government has built *anything* since WWII."

I disagree with all of this.

It's pretty clear that DeSantis is establishing his brand as -

"the tough, calm, focussed political leader who does what he says he's going to do and doesn't get distracted with silly, pointless drama".

This is to draw a sharp contrast with what some people see as Trump's "unnecessary drama problem" for the voters in general and Biden's empty-headed senility and anger-issues. And any other Dim pol will be another drama queen hack so that's good for defeating them as well.

His biggest issue with his announcement was using the equivalent of 1930s radio technology in a visual era. A lot of the "problem" with DeSantis voice would be eliminated if you could see how passionate or engaged or determined he is to go along with the words.

I say this as a guy who'd prefer Trump as President and DeSantis as VP. But, that doesn't appear to be what I'm going to get.

But, I could easily support whoever wins the primary.

I've been trying to find out, "what's the emotional appeal for DeSantis?"
All I can hear is, "the people that hate Trump won't hate him as much." "We'll never get the people that hate Trump to vote for him." Etc., variations all on " the respectable Republicans all say these are the flaws of Trump, so let's run a candidate they can vote for."
And let us not pretend to the fiction that that isn't what Ron is running as-- he's said exactly that. The candidate respectable Republicans can vote for.
But maybe you expand that out and say those flaws also make Trump toxic to moderate voters vital to victory. Says who? The very same respectable Republicans, of course! With their dead-on accurate analysis of such as the peak genius of the 2012 Election Autopsy.

So it really comes down to two paths to the WH. Trump's is to bring in more of the working and middle class that helped him win in 2016. Ron believes the path is to bring back the 10% of liberal Republicans that left, while somehow pealing away those Trump voters.

272 253 As a Floridian in those days I remember how Jeb Bush reformed elections law and went after the vipers nest in Broward County (eventually, DeSantis finished the job there). Jeb actually did a great job on elections, including bringing in many reforms now championed by Republicans all over the country. He should have been happy staying as governor, and his reputation would still be great. Hope DeSantis doesn't go down the same path.
Posted by: Huck Follywood at May 26, 2023 08:53 AM (2SuyT)

Republican governors are allowed to be conservative. It's once they get to a national platform where the money walks in and says, "You will bend the knee to GOPe priorities, or you will get no big dollar funding. You don't want to run a national campaign without big dollar funding, do you?"

Also, Jeb is part of the GOPe, and minor election fixing isn't anathema like actually enforcing borders. Notice, he didn't actually fix Broward County...at all. He put in some rules that Broward County blatantly ignored for a few years until DeSantis just fired people.

294 So the 2024 primary comes down to, "what kind of party will the Republican Party be?" Save the party for what it was in 2003 or grow it into something new?

Trump will seal it as a working, lower and middle class of all races, with significant Hispanic and black increases.
And the intellectual class, the writers, the thinkers, the pundits, the college boys-- they have a real disdain for those people.

That's the real reason the Republican Party hates Trump so very much-- he makes them have to associate with dirt people, people who sincerely believe in their faith, people who get made fun of in New York and DC saloons.

There is a limited pool of upper and college educated to appeal to--and the Dems have them in their clutches from kindergarten to college graduation. There is a massive, largely untapped pool of working and middle class that been ignored by both parties....

Yeah, they're a bit pissed at the Catholics over the courts & also the schools but they ALWAYS have to make another (person/group) the target. Psychological warfare and, unfortunately, the worst of history.

But there are on rare occasion other small...blessings?.. we overlook. (Reuters) 2020 - A daughter of U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland is/was set to clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan starting in 2022, unless her father is still serving as the head of the U.S. Justice Department, the Supreme Court said in a statement late Tuesday.

One of Justice Kavanaugh’s OT 2024 hires is an ordained Roman Catholic priest with the Congregation of Holy Cross. Justice Gorsuch also has another professor, the third, from Notre Dame Law clerking in OT 2024. (Original Jurisdiction, David Lat, substack, Dec '22.)

Zelenskyy centered his remarks on the importance of time, in addition to indispensable ideals of freedom, self-determination and democracy.

Have we ever seen a leader like Zelensky in our lives? His courage and that of his family and country are a beacon of hope for all who prefer an open free United Democracy!

History IS written by the victors. We need to do everything in our power to help Ukraine succeed. If the Ukrainians can defeat Putin, Mr. Zelensky will go down in history as a great leader. Putin is headed for the historical trash heap with Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and countless other failed tyrants.

Currently he is the moral center of our world. He represents a true human with a heart and a brain. Which is why he is hated by the RW around the world.

Certainly appreciate your comment, but it happened a long time ago now (201. Also, I think it's where we are, at least in Episcopal churches. The left is pushing the boundaries past red lines everywhere they possibly can, learning what the nation will tolerate and then trying to extend the lines of chaos.

For example, the widespread sexualizing of children is appalling, but it is ongoing and everywhere. No matter how "red" the community, schools, libraries, and state agencies all seem to have coordinated their messages. At some point, citizens will fight back (I hope).

Think of Jack Dorsey as having created something that at the lowest level had a centralization problem, and in the arena could not find methods to decentralize, due to the overall structure of what he created. But he had a problem with that reality, so that the UNDERLYING math of Twitter needed a modification.

He was stuck, due to the structure of the endeavor, so that he could not escape top down controlling factors from the state.

So he decided to create n UNDERLYING infrastructure that would not be so subjected to top down control.
