The Morning Report — 12/7/23

christiegassy.jpg

Good morning, kids. In the parlance of one of the most execrable people which, worse is a direct reflection of the attitude of far too many of the younger generations, "82 years ago today, some people did some things somewhere in Hawaii, and we probably deserved it."

I've resigned myself to the fact that the remembrance of Pearl Harbor as a nearly sacred, cultural touchstone has all but disappeared from our culture and collective memory. I do not expect the corporate propaganda mills to even mention it in passing, but the fact that in aggregating today's links I did not find even one link on the subject within the conservative blogosphere is really depressing (there is one at the very end but it only mentions the date in context to a story about the Korean War). I hope this is just a factor of outlets waiting to publish on the actual day, but this is surprising given the usual volume of stories from previous years.

It is only natural that over the course of time, as older generations pass into history, that the power and immediate connection to events that have shaped our lives and our history gradually lose some of their impact and meaning, especially on those who did not directly experience them. It was always part of our culture that generations that came after momentous events like the Revolution, the Civil War, the Depression and Pearl Harbor understood their significance and meaning in their own everyday lives.

Obviously that is no more, and it has very little to do with older generations passing into history. For at least the past 60 years, via our schools and the simultaneous/symbiotic cultural rot of that time in general, America's children have been gradually and now massively lobotomized into hating who they are, their heritage, history and way of life. That was intentional and has become painfully evident in the wake of the 10/7 mass pogrom against Israel given the violent cheering on of the barbarity on our own campuses and streets.

It's a powerful coincidence that tonight begins the celebration of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, which like many other Jewish holidays is a celebration of an historical event. Some are joyous, like this one, but sadly many mark the remembrance of tragic events that have befallen the Jewish people over the course of millennia. The salient point, though, is remembrance. Remembrance and perseverance in the face of overwhelming tyranny, suffering and persecution, and the determination to keep the faith when all seems lost. I'm no great rabbinical scholar but if I were to crystallize it down to its essence, I think that that is what has kept us going for nearly 5,800 years.

It's why when there is neither memory nor understanding of the significance of December 7th, 1941, you get high school and college kids egged on by their teachers into not only celebrating the rape, torture and slaughter of innocent people as somehow the justified expression of some righteous cause, but feeling "empowered" to verbally and physically assault anyone they perceive as racist, sexist, homophobic . . . or simply being identified as a Jew.

Yes, we've now come full circle my friends. Ditto all the topsy-turvy Orwellian madness of everything we are witnessing here, most distressingly the distortion and perversion of the civil rights movement and race relations into an intentional ginning up of race-hatred that can and will lead to disaster.

Why and how did purportedly enlightened universities become incubators of such primordial hatred? After the George Floyd riots, reparatory admissions—the effort to admit diverse students beyond their numbers in the general population—increased. Elite universities like Stanford and Yale boasted that their so-called “white” incoming student numbers had plunged to between 20 and 40 precent, despite whites making up 68-70 percent of the general population.

The abolition of the SAT requirement, and often the comparative ranking of high school grade point averages, have ended the ancient and time-proven idea of meritocracy. Brilliant high school transcripts and test scores no longer warrant admissions to so-called elite schools. One result was that the number of Jews has nosedived from 20-30 percent of Ivy League student bodies during the 1970s and 1980s to 10-15 percent. Jewish students are also currently stereotyped as “white” and “privileged”—and thus considered as fair game on campus.

At the same time, the number of foreign students, especially from the oil-rich Middle East, has soared on campuses. Most are subsidized by their homeland governments. They pay the full, non-discounted tuition rates to cash-hungry universities. Huge numbers of students have entered universities, who would not have been admitted by the very standards universities until recently claimed were vital to ensure their own competitiveness and prestige.

Consequently, they are no longer the guarantors of topflight undergraduates and professionals from their graduate programs. Faculty are faced with new lose/lose/lose choices of either diminishing their course requirements, or inflating their grades, or facing charges by Diversity/Equity/Inclusion commissars of systematic bias in their grading— or all three combined. The net result is that there are now thousands of students from abroad, especially from the Middle East, far fewer Jewish students, and student bodies who demand radical changes in faculty standards and course work to accommodate their unease with past standards of expected student achievement. And, presto, an epidemic of anti-Semitism naturally followed. . .

. . . All these radical changes explain the current spectacle of angry students citing grievances, and poorly educated graduates who have had little course work in traditional history, literature, philosophy, logic, or the traditional sciences. Universities and students have plenty of money to continue the weaponization of the university, given their enormous tax-free endowment income. Nearly $2-trillion in government-subsidized student loans are issued without accountability or reasonable demands that they be repaid in timely fashion. . .

. . . What is the ultimate result of once elite campuses giving 70-80 percent of their students As, becoming hotbeds of dangerous anti-Semitism, and watered-down curricula that cannot turn out educated students? The Ivy league and their kindred so-called elite campuses may soon go the way of Disney and Bud Light. They think such a crash in their reputations is impossible given centuries of accustomed stature. But the erosion is already occurring—and accelerating. At the present rate, a Stanford law degree, a Harvard political science major, or a Yale social science BA will soon scare off employers and the general public at large.

I think the estimable, and Ace cruelty fanboi, Victor Davis Hanson kind of misses the mark in his conclusion. While as he states, and accurately, that "so-called elite campuses may soon go the way of Disney and Bud Light," who could have imagined even a few short years ago that those two icons of American culture would themselves degenerate they way they did? Ditto the woke retailers and even former industrial giants like Ford that are embracing to greater or lesser extents the climate change bullshit? Corporate America circa 1970 or even 1980 certainly would be scared off by these worthless degrees. But Corporate America 2023?

America itself is going down the tubes because of the very thing VDH is correctly identifying, vis a vis the hijacking of academia and its transformation into the world's most effective and terrifying mass brainwashing mill. This does not bode well for the continued functioning of a healthy society, economy and nation. Unless and until we can figure out a way to un-fuck the minds of the past several generations of American youth, the future does not look promising.

* * * * *

Evidently there was another complete waste of time GOP presidential debate. Here's the tale of the tape from Breitbart if you're at all interested.

My takeaways:

  • Crisco Christie is a disgusting, fat fraud who has a great future as a buoy on Obama's Martha's Vineyard pond.
  • Nikki Haley is an abject lying globalist slag, who shockingly pimped illegal alien amnesty.
  • Vivek Ramaswamy hurls red meat like a pro.
  • Ron DeSantis was fine if not a bit dull.
  • None of the above are going to beat Trump for the nomination, the Deep State persecutions notwithstanding.

    And if these rumblings about Trump picking Nikki Haley as veep are true, then I'm done.

    Remember Pearl Harbor and Happy Hanukkah.

      ABOVE THE FOLD, BREAKING, NOTEWORTHY

    • Victor Davis Hanson: "The Ivy league and their kindred so-called elite campuses may soon go the way of Disney and Bud Light." (Yet none of those are stand-alone entities; they are or were microcosms of America as founded - jjs)
      How Were the Universities Lost?
    • Daniel Greenfield: "The Pentagon’s lectures to Israel ignore the real lessons of the fight against ISIS."
      This is Why America Forgot How to Win
    • "The Fall of Minneapolis is terrifying in that it proves how quickly the Marxists in every institution — politics, the news media, and the justice system — can band together and turn the death of a career criminal into a nationwide riot, and happily send innocent people to jail as they do it. And considering that the 2024 presidential elections, perhaps the most important in our nation's history, are less than a year away, we'd be morons to think the lefties won't try this again.

    That is depressing, JJ. This was one of the first historical dates that we learned and kept remembrance of annually in elementary school back in the mid-to-late 60's (where it would have only been 15-20 years that had passed since the event ... hard to wrap my head around now).

    [I've at least been expecting those writing that Israeli Intelligence and BiBi had advanced knowledge about 10/7 -- but allowed it to happen (to unite the country around the latter) -- haven't compared it to the (conspiracy?) theory that US Intelligence and FDR had advanced knowledge of December 7 (but allowed it to happen to draw a reluctant America & Americans into WWII).

    87 It's a shame that the world forced us to whip all their asses in that war. Obviously, it was a tragedy for virtually everyone on earth, but if they'd just behaved themselves a *little,* maybe America could have remained cocooned in its preferred pacifistic isolationism and not become this unseemly thing it is now.

    Probably not - we're victims of our own success; it's likely that we'd have eventually found a reason to exercise our innate power. It's just human nature. And our journey to becoming an empire really began in 1898, anyway. But December 7, 1941 was the inflection point, after which our descent into this mire was uninterrupted and unquestioning.

    The Japs made us the kind of country that deploys fat toadlike viceroys like Victoria Nuland to every last nook and cranny of the globe in search of the next pocket-fattening, adventurist excursion.

    I would suspect that more voting blacks support Donald Trump than they would Ben Carson.

    Carson is about as full of energy as a bucket of drying paint, and just fails to connect with the average urban black voter in my opinion.

    This is not an attempt to disparage Dr Carson.

    Only the first example has any possible meaning, and it doesn't - yet. Nobody cares about undergrad. Ivy League undergrad has been a joke for years. Even the students know it. Nobody is taking a BA from Harvard or a BS from MIT and walking into high-power industry. That doesn't happen until the graduate degree.

    It isn't the Harvard PoliSci major being rejected that will cause any problem. It's the Harvard lawyer or the MIT PhD in computer science that must be rejected by industry and these are *not* being rejected. Not yet, anyway.

    141 JJ. The progs main talking point is abortion, they have others. Abortion sadly is the winning argument even as they continue to push DEI and the trans crap. There just isn't a way for conservatives to counter abortion, the parties are too far apart on it. The progs would really like to push for abortion up to the first week of life and conservatives have a few week after conception rule. How will you ever bridge that gap? The wine moms need to be written off, you cannot get their votes on anything, especially abortion. Conservatives need to push the economy, push back against the tranny crap, immigration and the border. Stuff they can counter.

The around 2016 the Left turned on white women -- the squad and women's march, She the People, etc. lectured white women to sit down and STFU because they were part of the problem. Well, now they've moved on to the Jews as the latest ones they feel free to openly hate.

    However, progressive Jews in the US were totally fine with the anti-whiteness talk, had fun joining in -- it is **they** who forgot that Jew hate is universal.

    211 Speaking of Disney?

    The Central Florida Tourism Oversight Board has issued their audit of the Reedy Creek Improvement District, which turned out to be Disney's wholly owned subsidiary government. The completed audit report goes to the Governor and the Florida Legislature.

    The audit contains words like fraud and referrals to the IRS and SEC. RCID did little things like build $700 million dollars in parking garages that only benefited Disney Corporation using municipal bonds.

    Turns out the Disney Corporate Counsel and the RCID District Counsel were both the same person. Talk about a conflict of interest?

    Disney also paid the real estate taxes of some of the RCID Board Members.

    This will likely be a Multi Billion Dollar Financial Mistake by Disney, and some present and past executives will be in deep shit.

    215 I was roundly teased and criticized when I was the first to post that Nikki Haley would be the (R) nominee around two or so months ago, but it's becoming more obvious that it's the case, isn't it?

    We even saw people here saying things like "Nikki Haley would be better than Biden" yesterday.

    Other Nikki related things are starting to become more clear, too. The digitial ID statement was the first tell.

    I now think the people in charge intend to remove Biden/Harris using Nikki, and use Nikki to implement their plans.

    It all goes back to the WEF. Look at her donors. Look at her meeting with Blackrock's Larry Fink where she IMMEDIATELY started calling for digital ID. Look at her being asked about ESG scores and refusing to answer for the same reason (Fink is the big pusherman of that crap).

    They'll use the (R) president because the (D) president is tainted.

    I just don’t see a path for Nikki Haley. Theres just no way she can beat Trump. And if she can’t get the GOP nom she can’t be prez. I’d go so far as to say she can’t win the GOP nom even with Trump in prison. Of course that timeline isn’t realistic… if Trump ends up in prison it’ll be after he sews up the nomination. None of his criminal trials will be completed before he’s won enough primaries to guarantee him the nomination… that’ll happen around Super Tuesday

    Expecting recent generations to understand and revere dates such as December 7th is a high bar for people who can't figure out the difference between males and females.

    It took at least sixty years for Pearl Harbor to fade from the national conscious. Amnesia has all but accelerated due to cancel culture. Twenty plus years since 9/11 and young people have all but forgot the date, and the origins of violence, and this includes kids who were either adolescent or post adolescent when it happened.

    297 Though the Civil War was over 150+ years ago, until the Civil Rights fights of the 60s, things had not improved for blacks (the gigantic exception being slavery).

    Once "protesters " occupied admin offices in the 60s and the campaign to eliminate racism - BAMN was basically alive and well then. Just not called that.

    Once you link that with a cause, it grows like cancer to the next cause, rinse and repeat. The only way you're going to begin to "cure" that cancer is to start cracking heads (or arrest these folks 3 years later as they are stepping off a plane).

    We are way, way past dialog with people like this because they have been coddled up to this point, thus allowing to believe they are right, even if they are wrong.

    343 "President Biden, on Ukraine and also China, there's polling by the Associated Press that shows that almost 70% of Americans, including 40% of Democrats, believe that you acted either illegally or unethically in regard to your family's business interests. Can you explain to Americans, amid this impeachment inquiry, why you interacted with so many of your son and brother's foreign business associates?"

    The president's eyes narrowed, and his lip curled: "I'm not going to comment on that. I did not. And it's just a bunch of lies."

    350 So, to repeat my take on DeSantis:

    I'm of the opinion that he, or the cabal surrounding him, believed Trump would be so tied up in endless lawfare that he simply would not even try running. DeSantis and his people then thought if he could sound MAGA enough, he'd be able to siphon off Trump voters and cruise to the nomination.

    Where they erred is that the left's TDS wouldn't allow them to stop, but that they would throw the kitchen sink at him and disgust ordinary Americans to the point that they rallied around Trump and made him the putative front-runner.

    So Trump benefits from both the left's hatred and DeSantis' short-sightedness. As to whether Trump can win. . .well, you know my thoughts on that fantasy.

He wrote back to the journal and requested a different reviewer; got one… and the paper was published. The process was not entirely dispassionate shall we say…

    447 Sessions was incompetent and a coward. His recusal without an examination of the facts opened the floodgates on President Trump. His inability to discern facts and use them as a primary basis for his decision allowed the entire hoax and attacks to subvert the president to move forward.

    In life you often only get one chance to do something which contributes to the greater good. Something that really matters and shows you are truly courageous and principled. In an instance, Sessions failed that test miserably, and that's why he'll be remembered for despite anything else he has done.

    No he didn't. He was also under investigation, do you remember that? Because of his meetings with Kislyak during the campaign he was considered part of the Russia collusion hoax. It wasn't just Trump, Sessions was also under investigation.

    Yes, it was all a lie but if you go back and read contemporaneous accounts of what was going on the vast majority of people actually believed that bullshit. Because of his situation his own DOJ staffers told him he should recuse which seemed logical at the time and that's why he recused. Again, in hindsight the entire plot is easy to see but it wasn't when it was happening.

    Epoch Times is Hong Kong based (or was - their presses keep getting attacked there), with bureaus in Taiwan and the US at least.

    Per my understanding when I looked into it, the founder of ET and some of the senior staff are Falun-Gong. The organization and the paper are unaligned, though Falun-Gong sympathetic. The paper's purpose isn't Falun-Gong, it's purpose is anticommunism.

    476 450 The Biden administration has delayed its ban on menthol cigarettes after strategists warned President Biden that it could negatively impact his support among black voters.

    Leaders in the black community claim that the ban would foster an underground market and cause police to target black smokers in a disproportional manner, the Washington Post reports.

    481 Before preaching about fairness and humanitarian BS for Hamas and its supporters, Blinken should heed the words of, possibly, the greatest American not inclined to run for higher office:

    “You cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it; and those who brought war into our country deserve all the curses and maledictions a people can pour out. I know I had no hand in making this war, and I know I will make more sacrifices to-day than any of you to secure peace.”

    487 As far as the Trump VP pick is concerned, I think people are sleeping on Tim Scott, which is understandable in that he's living Sominex, but he's also the one person running for President this year that Trump still had nice things to say about while he was still running. That means something, I think.

    Vivek reminds me still that he really needs to be the head of the RNC, because he's just TOO good at throwing out the red meat. Him pointing out that Nikki Haley and Chris Christie were both too stupid to know what regions of Ukraine Russia had seized would be, in a normal world, a silver bullet ending their careers. And I swear I said that Christie needed to waddle off stage, find a buffet, and get out of the race about three seconds before he did at home and I laughed myself silly for a solid minute-ten.

    492 NJ and NY for that matter, have large rural populations of people who don't buy into the left wing socialist crap their states undertake. They are good decent people who just want to live their lives, but they are outvoted by the takers and left wing buffoons who will vote for anyone with a "D" behind their name. It's also why many of those people are leaving, and in NY in particular the Democrats are losing support. To the point they are trying unconstitutionally to gerrymander districts and further corrupt the electoral system to stay in power.

    Ok. I'll bite.

    Possible software duplication of ballot batchs.

    Assume you have a stack of ballots that can be defined as a batch.

    You run the batch through the scanner once and you will generate an image for every ballot. Each image will have a random variation in the positioning and alignment of the QR code due to minute differences in how each ballot was printed and/or fed through the scanner. The batch as a whole now has a unique "signature" in the form of where those QR codes are located on the ballot images in the batch.

    Now if you were to feed that same batch of ballots through the scanner a second time, the alignment and position of the QR code on each ballot in the second bstch would still be different than the first batch even though you are scanning the very same ballots. This would be due to tiny random variations in how each ballot gets fed into the scanner. So even though you scanned the same ballots, the second rescanned batch would have a different QR code location "signature" than the first. [more at link]

    Regarding SAT, I recall when the test began to be vilified. Calls from the usual suspects for "fair and separate" tests for the "disadvantaged" students went unheeded, so the tactic to suborn the university admissions process was taken.

    510 No he didn't. He was also under investigation, do you remember that? Because of his meetings with Kislyak during the campaign he was considered part of the Russia collusion hoax. It wasn't just Trump, Sessions was also under investigation.
    ===================
    He was certainly threatened with investigation, but those Kislyak meetings were thin gruel, and an expert Washington politician would see that.

    IMO, he saw an interminable political attack coming, and he decided to side-step the whole mess. Doing this meant shoving Trump under the bus. Selfish and weak? Why yes, he was accused of being selfish and weak at the time, but in retrospect I think you can add spineless and cowardly to the bill of particulars. The investigation he faced, if one ever developed, was a nothing burger.

    511 Good morning, all, and thank you, J.J.

    DEI, our cultural revolution, attempt 2 or so.

    Newsom accused DeSantis of being on a book “banning binge” and “using education as a sword for your cultural purge.”

    “I don't like the way you demean people, Newsom told DeSantis. “I don't like the way you demean the LGBTQ community. I don't like the way you demean and humiliate people you disagree with..."

    Chinese teaching the long Century of Humiliation ended with the takeover of the Chinese Communist Party. When many U.S. cities were also burning, the Chinese Cultural Revolution also happened & its youth joined the Red Guards. Many schools stopped normal operation for a long time; senior high schools stopped student recruitment for up to 6 years, and universities stopped recruitment for an even longer period. Of course, The Cultural Revolution was characterized by violence and chaos across society which was eventually rejected by society. Reportedly, women's rights and education across the board improved but China's relations with the Soviet Union became strained because the Soviet Union refused to attack Taiwan on behalf of China.
