The Morning Report — 10/2/23

pulledpork.jpg

Good morning, kids. A few interesting things making waves this morning. First, in the wake of Friday's official fossilization of Feinstein and her soul taking the express elevator all the way down, I had hoped to use the headline "Choosy Mothers Choose Schiff." Alas, as I had suspected would be the case, the greasy governor of California chose a black woman. Shocking right? Meh, had he not done that as he had promised, whatever his chances at winning the Biden replacement derby would have gone right down the same Atlanta toilet that floated the demented criminal into the Oval Office in 2020.

So, congratulations to Senatrix Laphonza Butler. Her experience? Aside from melanin content, chromosomal makeup (which is fast becoming obsolete since leftists don't really know what exactly the definition of a woman is these days) and most crucially, anti-American bona fides, she served as president of Emily's List. Per the invaluable Discover the Networks:

EMILY’s List (EL) is a political action committee that raises millions of dollars each year for Democratic, pro-choice, female candidates running for elected office. The organization strives to make these funds available to the recipients as early as possible in each election cycle, so as to give them every opportunity to gain maximum public exposure and credibility, and thus to access additional campaign donations from a wide variety of sources thereafter. “EMILY” is an acronym standing for “Early Money Is Like Yeast,” which, as EL’s slogan puts it, “helps the [political] dough rise."

In this case, more like a yeast infection. Funny that they refer to dough rising, since it's kind of close to the antithetical "bun in the oven." And what the hell kind of name is Laphonza? But I digress.

As for the real focus of this story, Gavin Newsom, a) he kept his promise and did not alienate blacks, dames and lezbos, and thereby totally sabotage his chances should he decide to seek the Dem nomination, b) it's only to fill out the remainder of Feinstein's term which is up this coming cycle, so Karen Bass, Schiff-for-Brains and whoever else can fight it out amongst themselves thereby allowing Newsom to keep his hair perfect like a London werewolf, c) this makes no difference to the already doomed state of California but courtesy of the 17th Amendment, it affects the rest of the nation just as the framers of the Constitution never intended it.

Another interesting little tidbit about this broad, from just this past June:

EMILY’s List — an organization whose goal is to elect pro-abortion Democrat women to public office — told Politico over the weekend about its plans to promote the epically incompetent VP, whose approval ratings have teetered around the low-40s and mid-30s for much of [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Biden’s first term. . .

. . . President of EMILY’s List Laphonza Butler told the outlet that the PAC wants to “push back against the massive misinformation and disinformation that’s been directed towards [Chlamydia Harris] since she’s been elected.” The PAC previously supported Harris in 2020 after she was announced as Biden’s running mate, and Butler also helped guide Harris’s failed presidential bid while working for a leading California political consulting firm.

So, maybe it's a case of "friends close, enemies closer" for Newsom or else an indicator that he believes Harris is on the outs, or promoting an ally of hers as a means to influence her loyalties?

Meanwhile, back in D.C., as the GOP fights tooth and nail to maintain its position as a sham opposition party, during the vote to prevent a dreaded shutdown of the government, this horrid assclown pulled a less than cunning stunt. Emphasis on the word "pulled":

“Rep Jamaal Bowman pulled a fire alarm in Cannon this morning,” House Administration Committee Chair Bryan Steil (R-Wisc.) said in a statement. “An investigation into why it was pulled is underway.”

A spokeswoman for Bowman told Axios that the congressman “did not realize he would trigger a building alarm as he was rushing to make an urgent vote” and that he “regrets any confusion.”

It doesn’t seem that Republicans are buying that story. Reps. Harriet Hageman (R-Wyo.) and Lisa McClain (R-Mich.) are both drafting resolutions to censure Bowman, and Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), has already drafted a resolution to expel Bowman from the House.

Censure appears more likely, as it only requires a simple majority, while expulsion requires a two-thirds vote, meaning that a significant number of Democrats would have to join with Republicans to expel a member of their party. And that’s not likely to happen. According to the report, there is footage of Bowman pulling the alarm, and at least one Democrat is all but denying that it is, in fact, Bowman. . .

. . . According to sources who spoke with Fox News Digital, the alarm was pulled right shortly after House Republicans made the announcement they’d be expediting a stopgap spending bill, commonly referred to as a continuing resolution (CR) to extend government funding for 45 days, for consideration on the House floor on Saturday. According to the report, the announcement caught Democrats off-guard, and they complained that they weren’t given enough time to read the bill.

Based on a publicly released photo of the incident, it is clear that this was not an accidental pulling of the fire alarm but instead a ridiculous effort to delay the vote averting a shutdown.

It's funny because all the multi-thousand-page catastrophes written by lobbyists are shoved down our throats without time to read or debate them. And anyone who objects is viewed as a heinous, uncaring racist who wants to throw grandma off a cliff and see little children starve.

As for Jamal Bowman, in a nest of anti-American, anti-Semitic, sub-literate, shrill, shrieking Maoists, he's about as low a scumbag as you can find. And that's saying something. Then again, look who his biggest booster is:

Anchor Jake Tapper said, “There was an interesting moment over the weekend when your New York colleague, Congressman Jamaal Bowman, he’s under investigation for this now after Capitol Police say he pulled a fire alarm in one of the House office buildings. Democrats were trying to delay a final vote on the bill. There he is, pulling the fire alarm. He says it was an accident. He thought pulling the alarm would open a door based on the fact that the doors to his right there was locked, and there was a sign that I think someone said it was confusing. I’ll be honest. It doesn’t really make sense to me, his explanation. Have you talked to him?”

Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think if you actually do see some of the photos of the signs, I think there’s something to be said about the government’s about to shut down, there’s a vote clock that’s going down, the exits that are normally open in that building are suddenly closed.”

So, he's too stupid to know what a friggin' fire alarm looks like? More like Titty Caca thinks we're too stupid to discern a bald-faced lie. From what I understand one of the reasons they pulled this shit was because the CR did not have any funds going to pay off Zelensky.

In any case, what Bowman did was indeed the dictionary definition of what all of the innocent dupes who were caught up in the FBI/DOJ false flag sting operation on January 6th have been accused of – many of whom tried, convicted and sentenced to long stretches in federal prison. And what he did was worse as it could have led to actual physical harm. As opposed to the crime against humanity of walking around with a police escort dressed as Chief Wild Eagle or putting your feet up on Malig-Nancy Pelosi's desk. The horror. The horror . . .

In a completely bizarre decision, Dem. Rep. Jamaal Bowman (NY) committed a misdemeanor and potential felony in order to stop the Constitutional function of government. I kid you not. . .

. . . We are talking breaking the law here, an act apparently performed with the goal of disrupting Constitutional congressional work. This is a Constitutional crisis because he intended to upend our Constitutional order and to topple our democracy. And stuff. Isn’t that how this works? I think so, according to the Democrats’ own rules, so this felony needs to be pursued and this man held accountable.

He won't be held accountable, because Democrat. If he actually were held accountable, cities would burn.

The Epoch Times video titled "The Real Story of January 6 "reveals the truth that has been hidden from the American people.  While a narrative has been set that what took place that day was an insurrection, key events and witnesses have been ignored until now.  The documentary takes an unvarnished look at police use of force and the deaths that resulted in some measure from it."

Robert Spencer asserts that "it is by now abundantly clear that the Jan 6 "insurrection" was not the work of Trump supporters, but of Leftist plants in the crowd at the Capitol[.]  Any lingering doubt about this has now been put definitively to rest by the revelation that those who ran the House Jan. 6 Committee show trial did not preserve mountains of evidence that apparently disproved the left's official narrative about what happened on that fateful day.  Like the Stalinists they are, it looks as if they framed their enemies and then destroyed the evidence of their own crime."

Christopher Roach points out that "there is now a very clear hierarchy for those caught up within the federal criminal justice system.  Left-wing offenders are the least culpable, and they get prosecutors to argue for downward departures.  Then come street criminals, who are sentenced within the guidelines.  Then there are those on the right, who face novel charges and get the book thrown at them."

There is some precedent for this. Soviet dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote in the Gulag Archipelago how political prisoners were treated worse in the Soviet system than regular criminals, whom the regime used to terrorize its political enemies. We also know how the Soviet Union, like other totalitarian regimes, created a whole class of pseudocriminals, who were given extremely harsh sentences for things like telling the wrong kinds of jokes or convoluted claims of sabotage and hoarding.

Between censorship, rigged elections, relentless propaganda, and two-tiered criminal punishment, the system is not leaving many ordinary political options for its opposition.

. . . The prisoners in the District of Columbia Jail have stated that they are "all but slowly murdered in every way except for their very soul being ripped from their famished chests on behalf of this mercilessly sinister institution."

Speaking of "burning," and as to Solzhenitsyn . . .

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    ABOVE THE FOLD, BREAKING, NOTEWORTHY

  • Richard Fernandez: "Corruption may be extensive in Washington, and there is no reason to suppose it is confined to one party. The problem is that you need a clean rag if you’re to wipe a table. If all the rags are dirty, then you’re only moving the dirt around. If the extent of corruption is unknown then where the clean rags are in Washington will be a basic problem. Perhaps the only reliable way to clean the mess up is turnover. That is to churn Washington, to turn everybody in the capital out of office after a certain period, from every party, regardless. But even that might not be enough."

22 So, Mrs. Luntz-McCarthy, having carefully focus-grouped th question, decided his sacrosanct political principles are (*checks notes*) to seek Democrat votes to Get Things Done and stay Speaker, bipartisanship being so popular, and all.

It's also a fundamental flaw: a system that allows a massive bureaucracy to be installed (or eagerly uses one) inevitably becomes just about serving that bureaucracy. Add to this the fact that we allow the bureaucracies to directly decide on new policy without congressional review.

I guess CA now has 2 unelected senators (both appointed by Hairgel to fill vacancies IIRC). Good thing I left that state (but really sad… it was a beautiful place and still is naturally beautiful).

So the RINO ranks in the house want to expel Gaetz because he’s holding Kev to his word. RINOs fight dirty so that ongoing ethics investigation will dig up some (made up) dirt on Gaetz. Perhaps Madison Cornbread resurfaced recently as a shot across Gaetz’s bow, which he’s ignoring apparently. It really is Clownworld in DC…. Or as Reuben Hicks calls it Babylon DC (or on the Potomac)…

A decrepit old Communist crook dies, and a young shyster governor hands off the lifetime Senate sinecure to a young, relatively unknown, sneering bagman out of the dark money apparatus.

Every development like this marks another inch that the torch slips from the gnarled, grasping claws of the gerontocracy, and into the grip of the Monster Babies.

it's incredibly stupid, especially as the dems and gop do it in such a way as to make it as ham handed as possible. remember when they were fencing off open air memorials to prevent people walking through them?

if they ACTUALLY shut down, and didn't work at ALL, i could see it. but as always, they don't shut down, punish their enemies, and have the media back their every move.

Speaking of, i've NEVER seen such a push of "how the shutdown will impact everyday americans" as i have this time around. the mrs like to watch nbc before work and nightly news and MAN, they were ALL over those stories, like joe with a 12 year old...

There's not a hairs-width of difference between what the new Senator supports and what DiFi supported. She doesn't need to be "told to vote like DiFi did." She'll do that on her own because she is part of the hive-mind.

But I bet not quite so much as the GOP does. Their cozy little controlled opposition arrangement was made with the those dying husks, not these wild-eyed little Maoists, with whom (as yet) there is no relationship. That arrangement was predicated on maintaining the illusion of representative government - an illusion that is increasingly shabby and unconvincing and obsolete. And I highly doubt these slavering Jacobins very much care for it.

I bet whenever one of these century-old power demons flies back into the maw of Hell, those particular piggies have an especially unpleasant shudder pass through them.

107 In the 2020 election between Trump and Biden, Pennsylvania managed to certify its election even though it had about 200,000 more ballots than identified voters on November 24, 2020 -- its certification date. That number was reduced somewhat by January 6th -- the day when there was a supposed insurrection for supposedly nonexistent election fraud. On that day the excess of ballots over voters was a mere 121,000.

I figure PA, GA, AZ, and WI have about 2% float on fake ballots in any given election.

Because they never intended to.

144 Dayjia Blackwell, or Meatball, filmed and followed a mob of looters as they broke into a series of stores last week, including an Apple store and a Lulemon. Meatball streamed the looting to her nearly 200,000 followers on Instagram, and police arrested her for reportedly encouraging the looting.

The looting has become a big, big business in modern America. And the organized crime rings that are running it work closely with local/state Dem elected officials.

Here is some solid "fact-checking" from the FactCheck.Org written in February 2017: "Swedish authorities and criminologists say President Donald Trump is exaggerating crime in Sweden as a result of its liberal policy of accepting refugees from Syria and other Middle Eastern countries."

They kinda are. Because they never take into account interest rates or inflation. Sure houses were $75k in the 70s. But that came with a 12% mortgage when a decent salary was $20k. Relatively speaking it’s not that much cheaper than a $400k house at 6% interest for someone making $80k a year.

Cook can be seen following Colie around the mall while thrusting his phone in his face as it plays the bizarre phrase, 'Hey dips**t, quit thinking about my twinkle' multiple times using a Google Translate app.

They moved to Maryland in 2021 when she assumed the presidency of EMILY's List.[17] Governor Newsom's office stated Butler would reregister to vote in California before taking office as a senator."

BTW, she was one of Pres. O's Champions of Change ('Living Wage'). Another was John Fetterperson.

The door - always open during the week, locked on Saturday - had confusing instructions suggesting it was standard operating procedure to trigger the door alarm. I don't see a problem. A fire alarm went off by accident. Nobody was hurt.

Seems like corporate media did it again. Misinformation, doesn't wait on facts, ya know what the GQP do so well.

The sign was clear. Would you defend the same thing if was MTG, Gaetz, or one of the crazies? I am not saying he did this as a prank, I am saying it was a stupid thing to do. Try doing this in any public building when it isn't an emergency, and see what happens.

I'm just curious why you think a child predator and an insurrectionist loon should be afforded the same charitable interpretation and acceptance of a perfectly acceptable explanation by an upstanding member of Congress and The Democratic Party?

I agree, the sign's confusing. In a hurry I can see myself doing the same thing. If Joe Biden would have done that, they would have him in a nursing home by now.

Joe Biden has made a ton of trips to Philly in the past two years. For RFK jr to make the announcement there is a shot across the bow. Philly brings PA to the (D)ems.

I'm sure some never-Trumpers might vote for him but Trump isn't getting their vote anyway. RFK jr could pull enough (D) votes to have Trump beat the margin of fraud with ease.

300 "RFK Jr appeals mainly to the traditional liberal democrat who feels privately nauseated by the Left..."

He is as far or even further left that the regime, only seems to have this odd, fly-over preference for free speech and some other constitutional rights if he can be believed. I don't see many libs walking away from the Dem machine, like we always hear about every election. They will do as told.

301 I just thought it was interesting to hear a 40+ year veteran real estate agent mention it. She's a lefty and was disgusted about how the rich are getting richer and low-income are getting priced out of chance at home ownership. It was unexpected.

BR is interesting in that it’s equally hated on the left and right. For the left they see it as capitalist oppressors of the working man and shit. Even though they live the work aspect of it. It’s a bit schizophrenic.

That's not at all how I remember it.

Unfortunately understandable, comrade, due to the capitalist disinformation you were subjected to in your formative years. Rest assured, though, we ensure the next generation knows the truth of the Carter Administration's economic and societal miracles, and the dark, reactive evils of the Reagan administration!

308 like RFK who want to give everyone a govt 3% mortgage

If you offer a 3% mortgage when inflation is really 10% or more...I'm buying as much McMansion as I can get financed for.

The easiest answer is just send the illegals home. With over 40M here, sending them back when significantly reduce demand and thereby price

309 I read the Mearsheimer substack piece on the Uke war, good analysis. Both sides have now locked themselves into this grinding WW1 type war where they continually trade the same 100 yards of dirt back and forth while taking appalling casualties.

This can't be correct. There are drones!

Posted by: spindrift at October 02, 2023 09:31 AM (G2KPu)

310 The 'myth' of affordable housing is that kids can't save enough to put down for a loan, then afford the mortgage. There's no consideration of starting small and working your way up, it's just 'I can't afford the McMansion on top of my Tesla payment so housing is unaffordable'.

313 WW1 type war where they continually trade the same 100 yards of dirt back and forth while taking appalling casualties.

I was running through the Uke's draft targets and current army size. The only way the numbers make sense is if they've had hundreds of thousands of casualties. Maybe its just all graft and millions of Uke men are living abroad but...I tend to think the former explanation is the more likely one.

315 I like RFK Jr. I remember his speech at the JFK Museum opening in which he savaged Jimmy Carter who was seated a few feet behind him. It was brave and beautiful. But his ultimate answers to every problem is some form of more government. He thinks he can produce better and more noble government with better and more noble people running it. That's not how it works and never will work.

316 I was doing some research into the development of my neighborhood back in the day. My house in particular was built in '68 and first sold for $21,200, and the median income for this area was about $7600. Today the house worth about 12X and the median income is about 15X. Inflation; how does it even work?

We purchased our house, three bedroom ranch, full basemant, 1/2 acre corner lot, for $39,000 in 1974. Former owner paid $29,000 in 1969. House originally sold for $17,900 in 1959. Now, we were offered $365,000. But, at our age, we're staying in place.

318 Re: The Covid Cover-up article

Matt Taibbi has published a useful set of pieces on his substack over the weekend, cataloguing the proto-fascism of Anthony Fauci.

It's amazing: he approved the EcoHealth experiments, funded them, overlooked the known biolab security failures at Wuhan, and covered-up the lab leak. Then, he led the federally-imposed shutdowns and required panic.

It truly is the most remarkable story, one that most Americans still don't realize even happened.

That's sad.

I remember many local and regional businesses folding during his presidency & interest rates for housing, etc. soaring.

"On his first day in office, he signed an executive order granting amnesty to those who had evaded the military draft during the Vietnam War, an amnesty that did not extend to deserters." (Academy of Achievements, in part)
I came from a region where many died or were terribly injured during that war & where 'they' laid in waiting to haul certain college graduates into military service immediately upon their graduation.

The USA caste system is real.

323 So Newsom wants to be prez. But Kamala is in the way. "How do you solve a problem like Kamala..." as the song says.

So he appoints one of her camp to the Senate, and he hopes she does so badly that she brings down Kamala too, and opens up the seat for Schiff. Laphonza does not sound too inspired in her speeches.
