The Morning Report — 5/31/23

aboutcontempt.jpg

Good morning, kids. Not that I really care, insofar as thinking it's going to solve or at least make the beginnings of a dent in getting our fiscal house in order, but the vote on the debt ceiling "deal" is today. I assume it has the votes to pass but along with the stalwarts on our side who are standing firm and voting no, Titty-Caca Ocasio Cortez will be joining them, albeit for very different reasons as you can well imagine.

That said, will she be able to drag a significant number of her fellow travelers to help torpedo this bullshit? We shall see. Some have postulated that should we default on the debt and suspend to a greater or lesser extent the activity of this corrupt, amoral bureaucracy, there will be some initial pain to the ordinary citizen but long term, the effect would be negligible if not salutary. Meh, they observe the Constitution only when it advances their anti-Constitutional agenda. When it doesn't, they breach it altogether, their amorality only exceeded by those allegedly on our side who do nothing to stop them. Pleas from National Review to go on a cruise and the RNC to donate so we can have a majority in Congress to stop them notwithstanding. If the junta wants/needs money, they'll get it one way or another, the law be damned.

And speaking of the lawless near-totalitarian junta hell bent on absolute power, supposedly Rep James Comer is going to hold jet-setting Gestapo chief Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress for refusing to hand over the evidence that implicates the Biden Crime Family in its generational scheme to sell off America's national policy interests to the highest bidder. What that means in terms of actual punishment – for Wray, since there will be nothing even remotely resembling punishment for Joey and his bastard of a bastard-making son – is anyone's guess. But, like those he's protecting, it's safe to assume that Wray is also untouchable. Pun intended.

Here’s a novel concept: The FBI is not above the law. In theory, of course, it’s true, as in no American is above the law. But is it really true in the sense that its leaders can be brought to justice if they break the law?  That’ll be the day. 

Ever hear of Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok? They were J. Edgar Hoover without the charm, spied on a presidential campaign without sufficient evidence, lied to the courts and never paid a price.  In fact, each got a lot richer thanks to the big shots who monetize the Hate Donald Trump fan clubs in cable TV and publishing houses. 

The unmistakable lesson is that crime, or something very much like crime, paid handsomely in their cases. If they weren’t above the law, they were certainly beyond its reach. So we must believe that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy was speaking hopefully, not literally, when he told Fox Tuesday morning that unless FBI Director Christopher Wray turns over a document alleging Joe Biden sold his office as part of a $5 million bribery scheme when he was vice president, Congress will move to hold him in contempt. 

“I personally called Director Wray and told him he needs to send that document,” McCarthy said. “We have jurisdiction over this . . . And if he does not follow through with the law, we will move contempt charges against Christopher Wray and the FBI. They are not above the law.”  To which Wray effectively replied, go ahead, make my day, with the FBI later refusing to give up the document. Republicans can pass their contempt citation, but it’s up to the Justice Department to turn contempt into a prosecution. And anybody who thinks Attorney General Merrick Garland is going to prosecute Wray for shielding the Biden family hasn’t been paying attention.

Garland is the ringleader of the protect Biden club. If Wray is held in contempt, Biden would probably give him a merit raise. 

The document demand grows out of a whistleblower’s testimony before the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, where GOP chairman James Comer has been banging the drum loudly about the Bidens’ decades-long grift. He used subpoena power to get bank records showing as many as nine members of the Biden gang got a cut of a big Chinese deal and recently revealed a complex web of bank accounts that Hunter Biden set up to receive and disburse huge sums from foreign paymasters. 

As Comer and others have noted, no legitimate business moves money around that way through shell company accounts. And what, they ask, was the actual product the Bidens were selling? In response to Comer’s demands and McCarthy’ threat, the FBI initially issued a boilerplate statement that sounded as if Wray might play ball: 

“The FBI remains committed to cooperating with Congress’s oversight requests on this matter and others as we always have, and we continue to be in touch with members of Congress regarding this request.”  That was a head fake, for late Tuesday, Comer said the answer he got was a hard no, adding the “FBI’s decision to stiff-arm Congress and hide this information from the American people is obstructionist and unacceptable.”  He added that although he and Wray would talk Wednesday, the panel “will now be taking steps to hold the FBI Director in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a lawful subpoena.”  Perhaps, but Comer has to know he can’t count on any Democratic votes. This will require Republican focus and unity — and thick skins to put up with the media abuse as it, too, protects the Bidens. 

The conflict comes at an important moment in the many House investigations. Other whistleblowers have also come forward, including more than 20 who told the House Judiciary Committee that the FBI is deeply politicized in favor of Democrats and the far-left.  They said it singles out pro-life groups, Catholics and parents attending school board meetings as a way of intimidating those groups. The whistleblowers also charged there is a pattern of top officials inflating cases beyond the evidence so they can be classified as domestic violence extremism, satisfying a favorite talking point of Democrats.  Three of the whistleblowers had their security clearances revoked as they prepared to testify, Fox reported.  Perhaps the most intriguing of those who came forward was Gary Shapley, the whistleblower who alleges the IRS has slow-walked the Hunter Biden case to avoid filing charges. . .

. . . The lesson so far is that, no matter what McCarthy and Comer say, the White House and executive agencies believe they are above the law, and will protect the president and his family for as long as they can. Although it’s obvious that Joe Biden profited from and participated in the influence-peddling schemes, if justice comes, it will come despite the current leaders of federal law enforcement, not because of them.  That’s why the showdown over the document must result in either Congress getting the document or Wray being held in contempt. Only when the obstructionists pay a personal price will they begin to calculate whether they want to risk their careers and reputations defending a corrupt president.

"Risk their careers and reputations defending a corrupt president?" What Michael Goodwin and so many others fail to recognize is that their central responsibility in their careers IS defending a corrupt so-called "president." That is, one who is firmly "down for the struggle" to destroy America as founded and supplant it with a regime firmly in the camp of the DC-Davos-Brussels-Beijing Axis. Meaning Democrats and RINO stooges who don't stray far from the plantation. Naturally, lorded and over by the "elites" as they fancy themselves.

And if the power of their office won't do the trick, they have government-approved (if not directed) street thugs to get your mind right, i.e., beat your brains in. (Warning: the photo is disturbing)

“The attack happened just before 10:30 a.m. at the clinic along North Howard Street, according to police. The two victims are both men, 73 and 80 years old,” KATV reported Tuesday. 

LifeSiteNews first reported on the incident Saturday. Local pro-lifer John Roswell told the outlet via email that Dick Schafer and Mark Crosby are the men who were allegedly attacked and seriously injured.  The pro-life outlet obtained photographs of what appear to be facial injuries. Roswell said that Schafer is “recovering at home” and Crosby was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

“Detailing the extent of the injuries, Roswell wrote that Crosby’s ‘plate bone in his upper right cheek is completely fractured,’ and that he ‘is bleeding from some unidentified area behind his eye and the bone eye orbit is completely shattered and will have to be replaced with metal,”‘ according to the report. Dr. Jay Walton, the president of Baltimore County Right to Life, started a GoFundMe for Crosby’s medical expenses. Walton said Crosby was “brutally beaten…while he was praying in front of the Planned Parenthood in Baltimore City.”

. . . Police said the suspect was allegedly seen passing the men before turning around to engage with them, CBS News reported.  The suspect was allegedly seen “having a visibly aggressive conversation” with one of the pro-lifers before he became physical. “The suspect is then observed about to turn away but rushes [at Crosby] and tackles him over a large flowerpot,” police said. Schafer reportedly tried to help Crosby, but was shoved to the ground and cut his hand, according to local news reports. “Officers said the suspect then continued to punch and kick Crosby,” KATV reported.  Police are still searching for the attacker, according to the report.

Remember that the FBI and DOJ will send SWAT teams to your door to terrorize you and your family as they drag you away for thought crimes, like they did to Mark Houck,

But pregnancy crisis centers and churches?

Or Supreme Court justices who don't vote like they're supposed to?

Leave us alone. We're far too busy concocting entrapment schemes, peon!

Hot on the heels of the news that the Feds have downgraded terrorism charges against Sai Varshith Kandula from threatening the president and vice president to what amounts to a fender bender, comes a new warning from the Department of Homeland Security. As you may recall, Kandula, who had a Nazi flag with him, crashed a U-Haul into the barriers of Lafayette Square.

And as you know, the fact that the same government that has told us there is nothing to see in the Kandula incident has also been very adept at targeting pro-lifers, and Catholics, making sure that the J6ers serve as a warning to us all, and harvesting bank information. Oh, and it also gave us the “Pyramid of Far Right Radicalization,” not to mention the PREVENTS-OH seminar at the University of Dayton.

Now the DOJ is warning the country about a potential increase in domestic terrorism. Why? Because election season is ramping up. And of course, that means that we need to heighten our awareness. See something, say something. The caveat may be that doing so depends on who you see and what they are doing. Just the News has obtained a DOJ bulletin titled “Summary of Terrorism Threat to the United States.”

The United States remains in a heightened threat environment. Lone offenders and small groups motivated by a range of ideological beliefs and personal grievances continue to pose a persistent and lethal threat to the Homeland. Both domestic violent extremists (DVEs) and those associated with foreign terrorist organizations continue to attempt to motivate supporters to conduct attacks in the Homeland, including through violent extremist messaging and online calls for violence. In the coming months, factors that could mobilize individuals to commit violence include their perceptions of the 2024 general election cycle and legislative or judicial decisions pertaining to sociopolitical issues. Likely targets of potential violence include US critical infrastructure, faith-based institutions, individuals or events associated with the LGBTQIA+ community, schools, racial and ethnic minorities, and government facilities and personnel, including law enforcement.

The above-mentioned triangle and seminars address things such as PragerU, Quillette, Turning Point USA, The Heritage Foundation, and Republicans in general. And the bulletin cited examples such as the Covenant School shootings, and the recent shootings at an outlet mall in Allen, Texas, done by a person who “held views consistent with racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist (RMVE) and involuntary celibate violent extremist ideologies.” It also mentions a white supremacist who tried to burn down an Ohio church that was planning a drag event and the white supremacists who attacked electrical substations in Maryland. . .

. . . No civilized person wants to see mass shootings, arson, or attacks on electrical substations. But I’d have more confidence in this bulletin if there had also been a “Pyramid of Far Left Radicalization.” But I’m not going to hold my breath. And neither should you.

Meanwhile the Homo-Tranny brigades just made Target their target for backing down on selling pervert gear to toddlers. Kind of puts Wray and Garland in a bit of a pickle. Target is ultra-pro-Lefty and regime approved, yet so are the mostly peaceful (and fabulous!) terrorists. Maybe if they add glitter and Astro-Glide to their Molotov cocktails, everyone will be ameliorated.

“For those who don’t know, Target has begun pushing the message of transitioning to young people and teamed up with a Satanist to push pro-Satan clothing and pins to children,” Miller wrote in the video’s caption. “The enemy isn’t even hiding anymore.”

The video remains shared on Bass’ Instagram story, published around 7:30 p.m. on Monday.||

25 Willowed but important. Can't find *anything* in searches about this.

I just heard a radio interview with a journalist in Uma, Arizona.

The reason you're not seeing anything from the border is because the U.S. border is being enforced from far *inside* the border (miles, it sounds like), and any journalists or similar trying to record or take photos of what's happening at the border is seized and pushed into Mexico.

This is not a joke. Apparently there are notifications that it's their method of enforcing the border, and they pretend it applies to everyone, but somehow only the Americans with cameras are being seized, transported, and dumped into Mexico without passports for re-entry.

The other quotes from politicians acknowledging Gay-rape of little children is gays "true selves" are hilarious, too:

"Uganda’s shameful anti-LGBTQ law is unjust & simply cruel,'' Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisc., said in a Tuesday tweet. ''Regardless of where you live, every person deserves the freedom to live their true authentic self, free from discrimination. I stand with Uganda’s LGBTQ+ community & call for an immediate repeal."

Again, the law is against Gay-raping of children.

54 "Some have postulated that should we default on the debt and suspend to a greater or lesser extent the activity of this corrupt, amoral bureaucracy, there will be some initial pain to the ordinary citizen but long term, the effect would be negligible if not salutary."

Those "some" are idiots. The long term effect would probably be negligible, and even very slightly beneficial.

The "initial pain" would be massive. And it would not impact all ordinary citizens equally. Social media strategists in SF and finance types in NYC would see very little impact. People in manufacturing, construction, transportation and extractive industries would be devastated.

These "some" are talking about crushing our people to stick it, in an extremely minor way, to the other people.

Even thinking about defaulting is the worst sort of clueless, middle-class, country club Republicanism. "Gop-E" if you will.

It's not the sex, it's the sin.

Same as adultery and porn. Wait, don't churches celebrate that and allow active practitioners to be preachers?

It's also power, but I think the two are related. Pride and what-not.

Not at all. It's very easy to square the circle. Red China isn't getting much for its money. You see, Red China thought that by buying Biden, they were buying American policy. They failed to understand - as you seem to fail to understand - that Biden was not and would never be in charge. In fact, nobody is in charge and that is why the US's China policy is so ... inconsistent. We freed the "Princess of Huawei" but kept the chip embargo running (and in fact accelerated it). We relaxed some tariffs while increasing export duties on vital goods. It makes no sense because nobody - that is, no single somebody - is control of United States policy.

The CCP thought it was buying American foreign policy. It has learned - much to its chagrin and rage - that what it bought was a senile turd floating in a rancid punch bowl.

I believe most of them are militant atheists or Universalists. They would scoff at anyone asking them this because fhey believe the Holy Scripture is entirely fiction.

I've previously tried to believe that the majority of them are simply twisted by sinful addiction to their own will, but with the amount of support recently shown for tranny ideology, pedo ideology, and whatever group the Dodgers now #StandWith, I now think that most of them are well and truly lost. They do not fear Hell because they reject it's existence.

I've watched the slow consistent descent ofnmy own stepdaughter over the years. She started off "gay but don't worry I still love Jesus," but 15 years later now openly rejects God and embraces a sad mashup of Norse mythology and Eastern Mysticism.

The CCP owns - or thought it owned - large swathes of our government. It still owns a big chunk of it. But winds change, and they are blowing away from the CCP recently. Some people they bought are no longer bought. Some actually aren't as powerful as they'd hope. Some are still bought and still carrying water for them.

But it is nowhere near as total as they thought or as it appeared to be. Trump fouled up the playing field and upset too many complex balances. Add into it COVID, the Chinese energy and internal problems, their failure to subdue Australia, etc. and the math has changed. China is by no means a dead letter and they are by no means powerless in the United States or without assets in our government, but they are not calling the shots whenever they want, nor do they get whatever they want. Our China policy has been schizophrenic for years because, I think, those internal conflicts are playing out.

Which is impressive.
Trump won the nomination easily in 2016 because he staked out a few key positions on the right and the 16 other losers stood on the stage and ... attacked him from his left, from the "moderate" center.

And look, it's happening all over again ...

The democrats aren't losing the debt ceiling agreement.
Period. They're the optimists! At the very worse, they recall when Obama(/Biden) agreed to $2.1 trillion in spending cuts to end the 2011 debt ceiling 'crisis.' There were spending caps, known as sequestration, but as time went on the bill unwound by degrees. In the end, there were cuts to discretionary spending over a decade that affected federal agencies & programs including a cut to Medicare providers' payments. It was needed & what they wanted and, in the bargain, they got to point accusatory fingers at the Republicans once again.

295 Just to be technical for a moment, the "Dreamers" situation involves enforcement by the executive branch, not legal status. (Which is why they keep trying to codify it) although that stretches the limits of what an EO can do, it was arguably allowable.
Changing birthright citizenship, however, requires directly overturning not only SCOTUS precedent but also more than one section of current Federsl Code. An EO is NOT allowed to go into those areas, it is strictly unconstitutional.

With both houses of Congress, I believe there's a path to doing it, although amending the Constitution is the only sure way.

He wanted to re-add information on citizenship status (which was there years ago) and the courts just told him no and he went along.

HAVE A PLAN

For example, print all the forms you need with the question. Mail them out ahead of time while the court is still considering it and claim "oopsie!" we had a deadline...didn't realize the court wanted us to violate it...SORRY!

Then let some low level person take the blame, fire him, and then hire him to some no-show job at a non-profit so he is taken care of.

The freedumb caucus doesn't want to stop the bill! They want to be seen as trying to stop it (and failing), so they can run for re-election in their districts about their selfless, gallant attempt to stop China and the Biden administration. Their nitwit supporters will buy whatever excuse the Freedumb Caucus sells them.

They never wanted any kind of deal. All they want is to destroy. They can scream all they want. A combination of Dems and Republicans will pass it. We should call them by a more accurate name: The Treason Caucus.

Their sole function is the production of soundbytes for the likes of Putin. These empty vessels are hired actors spouting lines in character. Their soul purpose is the destruction of our democracy. There are some in America that think that burning it all down is the only way to save democracy.

Ah, yes. "The Printer's Devil." I forgot that one, which is a pity because that's a great episode.

As an aside on the history of printing, there is a phantom that is said to haunt all print shops: Titivillus, also called the "Patron Demon of Scribes." Titivillus works on behalf of Satan to introduce errors into the work of scribes. With the advent of printing, the Titivillus myth continued, and he is the one who causes problems in lines of type or machinery.

Titivillus has never been more powerful, though nobody remembers his name. He now goes by a modern appellation: "autocucumber."

Currently, "under the jurisdiction of" legally means that if the local police are allowed to arrest you for anything at all, then you are under the jurisdiction of.

Growing up in the 50's in a Hungarian household, a Hungarian neighborhood and a Hungarian church, I was able to speak the language in my early youth. However, once the older folks passed, the language was spoken less frequently, and I eventually lost most of my ability to speak it. I do, however, remember some of the more colorful curses! Oh, for those in the New Brunswick NJ area, the annual Hungarian Festival is being held this Saturday, June 3rd (Hey, my birthday, as well!) in the city. Great food and music every year. I will be there for sure!

The phrase becomes meaningless unless it excludes some category of people who happen to be present in US territory. Which historically it did in regard to Indians at least(and was likely meant to avoid including ambassadors as well).

"Subject to the jurisdiction of" seems to relate more to the now largely forgotten concept of subjecthood. A US citizen overseas is still subject to certain US laws, even though they aren't in the ordinary physical jurisdiction of the US.

so yes

again was just in Philly over the weekend and the tone there is just different. even in the burbs - there is a menacing aspect to certain demos - they truly believe they deserve deference in all things, including if they want your stuff, they should just have whatever they want. and if you look at them wrong, they need to address that with verbal and maybe physical assault.

this is new. it's among the young primarily. the city is THEIRS now.

one evening a bunch of kids got rowdy by the seaport (Penns Landing) which was full of touristy types enjoying the night air. it must have been a social media fueled gathering bc it was HUNDREDS of kids. when I was a teen I never thought "huh let's get together in a mob for fun" - anyway they rampaged thru Penns Landing then Old City then Center City then Bridesburg. The cops didn't stop them until they finally circled the remnants in the middle of the night up in Bridesburg (a neighborhood).

That understanding was a concoction of SCOTUS and a concoction in dicta no less.

And we have around 60 years after the 14th amendment passed where Indians born in the US still did not receive US citizenship. On account that it wasn't understood to work the way it is used in modern times.

Indian Citizenship Act of 1924 is what gave the Indians birthright citizenship, not the 14th.

this is new. it's among the young primarily. the city is THEIRS now.

one evening a bunch of kids got rowdy by the seaport (Penns Landing) which was full of touristy types enjoying the night air. it must have been a social media fueled gathering bc it was HUNDREDS of kids. when I was a teen I never thought "huh let's get together in a mob for fun" - anyway they rampaged thru Penns Landing then Old City then Center City then Bridesburg. The cops didn't stop them until they finally circled the remnants in the middle of the night up in Bridesburg (a neighborhood).

384 If Birthright Citizenship could be ended, what would be the cut off? After all, Kamala Harris and several in Congress - not to mention their "mates" - are under that "umbrella," mostly when their mothers came to the US & stayed without permission.

What of the millions who've married US citizens long ago? I recall decades ago when young people were volunteering left & right to marry those who wanted into the country & then they got cheap divorces through divorce mills?

How much power does the UN - and WEB - have concerning migration to the US?

This has all the makings of a very lively, but necessary, debate. The US needs a line.

Personal hot button-- burning our flag.

Flag burning is in no way an expression of free speech. rather it is wilful and malicious desecration of our national symbol, and by extension, a denial of the country and it's values.

I do not tolerate such incidents in my presence and they will engender an appropriate response.

One of my favorite vintage videos is the one where protesters trespass on a baseball field during a game to burn a flag and one of the ball players swoops in and rescues the flag before they can light it. I'm sure you know the one. It's awesome to see the player use his athletic skill to do a good deed.

393 That's nothing new in Philly. The "flash mobs" come and go unless it's Rittenhouse Square or another posh area where civility is always maintained.

However, there's problems in towns at the Jersey shore that have very rarely, or never, seen such carrying on before C19. The parents are not being particularly cooperative with the police, either.

And there was this in Delaware County over the weekend: 1 critical, 8 teens hurt in shooting in parking lot outside Subaru Stadium, home of the Philadelphia Union soccer league. It has nothing to do with a soccer game which ended well before this event which involved more than 100 kids who were 'celebrating' the end of the school. The parking lot was found littered with shell casings & medical gloves.

Let's see how things are by the end of summer as government keeps "directing" more people into already crowded, competitive areas.

LOL!! Many of my neighbors came from "the old country" and would let loose with a tirade of Hungarian "phrases" if we kids annoyed them. Of course, my mom would ask, "where did you hear THAT?!?" when I repeated those colorful phrases. HA! Quite an education back then.

400 I made this point the other day; the executive is the most powerful branch in that no matter what Congress or the Courts determine, if the executive branch won't act on it, it won't get done. It's time for the house to play chicken with the Executive branch and find judges that will hold them in contempt so that the entire world can finally see this bukake theatre of so-called Constitutional behavior for what it really is: dictatorial rule by the executive with disregard for everything and everyone else. Let's stop pretending.

401 It is time for the House to discover that it has some balls. The House has always had a direct power of contempt. Apparently this has not been done for over 140 years, but the House can have the Sergeant at Arms arrest and confine a person that the House finds is in contempt.
It might come as a wake-up to Wray, to be thrown in a cell in the basement of the Capitol, to remain there until he has purged his contempt, by having the document delivered, and by apologising to the House. There is apparently no limits on the term of imprisonment that the House can determine to impose. How about.... 2 years 6 months in solitary confinement, which is the going rate for 'insurrection'?

402 I'm far less concerned with Wray, Garland, etc., being traitors (it's who Ds are nowadays) than I am stupefied by Rs unwilling to leak... ANYTHING. If Daniel Ellsberg could leak The Pentagon Papers in the middle of a war, why the Rs in congress can't leak any one of (doubtless) hundreds of docs that would harm the D long march... is just beyond me.
