The Morning Report — 2/23/24

peekjournalismcbs.jpg

Good morning, kids. Yet more banana republic bullshit this morning. Despite the fact that journalism today is regarded as a career that is about as respectable as child pornographer, real, actual dictionary-definition journalists are under the gun by the forces of corruption they have devoted their careers to expose. Except this time, there's a twist.

It's not the tentacles of a feral, government-run bureaucracy or corrupt judiciary putting the bite on the Fourth Estate. It's the Fifth Column within its own midst that's now doing the dirty work for them. Fascism by any other name would not reek so sickeningly:

CBS apparently seized computers, records and files of the now-former investigative reporter Catherine Herridge, who has recently been fired from the network, according to Jonathan Turley.

Turley, a professor at George Washington Law School, said he talked with people presently and formerly employed by CBS who confidentially told him they do not recall senior staff ever taking such a step before. At the time of her departure, Herridge was investigating special counsel Robert Hur’s report on President Joe Biden, allegations of corruption against the president and Hunter Biden’s laptop, Turley noted.

One former CBS journalist reportedly said staffers have never seen the apparent seizure of records and files from departing staffers.

The apparent seizure has caused a “chilling signal” across staffers at CBS, the journalist added, Turley wrote. A previous CBS manager reportedly stated that he had “never heard of anything like this,” as most departing journalists take their records and files upon leaving. He said the apparent seizure of her possessions is “outrageous” and endangered confidential sources, Turley added.

Turley said these files may contain sources that were handed confidentially to Herridge, making the company’s move “dead wrong.”

Paramount Global laid off Herridge, along with 800 jobs, in mid-February, the New York Post reported. Herridge left Fox News in 2019 after 23 years to work as a senior investigative correspondent for CBS News. She had previously been handed a prestigious award from the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.

Herridge is currently the subject of a First Amendment legal fight and could be held in contempt of court if she refused to disclose her source for investigative pieces she wrote in 2017, according to The Washington Post. U.S. District Court Judge Christopher R. Cooper reportedly ruled Aug. 1 that she had to disclose the sources who informed her about a federal probe regarding Yanping Chen, a Chinese American scientist, who sued the federal government for allegedly leaking private information to the journalist

The judge ruled Chen’s need for evidence overrides Herridge’s “qualified First Amendment privilege,” the outlet reported.

Herridge began her career during the halcyon days of the Roger Ailes era of Fox News, when at long last a major broadcast news network became respectable and wildly successful for merely reporting the news about as straight down the middle as it ever had been by any outlet up to that point – which as we now know was never. Of course, the erstwhile gatekeepers of what was and what was not worthy of reporting, and how it was to be reported defined that as "right-wing bias." Yet 1996 was when alternate media such as the internet, talk radio no longer shackled and muzzled by the Orwellian "Fairness Doctrine" and led by Rush Limbaugh finally challenged the media-propaganda complex for control of the narrative. Much like the coming of Trump forced all sorts of masks to be dropped and myths about how our government really operated to be exploded, so did the ascendancy of the original incarnation of Fox News expose the rank Leftist bias of supposed icons of impartiality like Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather and Peter Jennings as the hacks that they always were.

The toothpaste is out of the tube and there's no way to get it back inside. And as we now can see from the kangaroo court prosecutions of political enemies to the non-prosecution of criminals and leftist terrorists, they don't even care anymore.

Look what CBS did to Lara Logan in the wake of the hinky Clinton/Obama/McCain gun-running scheme to Islamic terrorists in Syria that exposed our diplomatic compound in Benghazi to an horrendous terror attack, as well as attempts to report about the true nature of Antifa, among other things.

Of course, we had another Fox alum James Rosen whom Eric Holder actively spied on at the behest of his boss, Obama, over his investigation into their ineptitude in dealing with NorK dictator Kim's nuclear testing. But, that's the government. You now expect them to spy on citizens and journalists for practicing actual journalism without a permit, and then railroad them into prison for crimes against the state. But CBS? The Tiffany Network? Outrageous!

Obviously, the reason Herridge is in the crosshairs is because she's way too close and accurate in her reportage about the rank corruption and criminality that is the sine qua non of the name "Biden." In doing that, it also exposes the mirror universe persecution of Donald Trump for all of those aforementioned high crimes and misdemeanors that have been projected onto him.

Meh, let's face it; Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants is an iridium albatross the size of Jupiter around the collective neck of the Democrats and they want him gone. The problem is they can neither get rid of him via the 25th Amendment after constantly pimping his being sharper than HAL-9000, nor allowing his removal over corruption after promoting the honest as the day is long bromide.

Then again, we have this clusterfuckery from the FBI.

The first question isn’t why special counsel David C. Weiss charged longtime informant Alexander Smirnov with making false claims about President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. The question is: Why now?

In 2024, an election year.

On Thursday, Weiss unsealed a 37-page indictment that charged Smirnov with making “a materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statement” in June 2020 to an FBI agent about the Bidens seeking $5 million each from a Ukrainian energy concern, Burisma. A second count involves making a false entry on an FBI form.

The revelation gave oxygen to the legal defense team representing the president’s son.

Smirnov, who should be presumed innocent, was arrested at Harry Reid International Airport on Wednesday and has a hearing Tuesday before Magistrate Daniel Albregts in Las Vegas.

In March 2017, according to the indictment, Smirnov told his FBI handler about a call with a Burisma official and mentioned that Hunter Biden was a Burisma board member.

It wasn’t until June 2020 that Smirnov reported two earlier meetings that ostensibly occurred in 2015 and 2016. Travel records suggested they didn’t happen, Weiss asserted. Hence these charges against a small-change witness.

It’s “really hard for prosecutors to charge perjury,” University of Virginia law professor Saikrishna Prakash told me. . .

. . . In short, Smirnov worked as a “snitch.” Snitches have a reputation for playing law enforcement to their advantage, while law enforcement has a reputation for looking the other way. I have trouble believing that any FBI agent would consider going after a vice president’s son based on the word of a career informant. Indeed, the FBI didn’t find the accusations credible. Hence the lack of action, until now.

To the average voter, the real scandal is that Burisma recruited Biden to serve on its board for a position that, according to the New York Times, paid him more than $800,000 in 2013 and more than $1.2 million in 2014, while his father was vice president and Ukraine was part of the veep’s portfolio.

At the time, the New York Times reported, Hunter Biden “was a Yale-educated lawyer who had served on the boards of Amtrak and a number of nonprofit organizations and think tanks, but lacked any experience in Ukraine and just months earlier had been discharged from the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine.” And still he earned that kind of money.

Weiss also has charged Hunter Biden with making false statements — for lying about his drug use while he possessed a gun. Weiss clearly takes perjury seriously. It’s downright refreshing.

So, on the one hand the FBI, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DOJ has been working in overdrive for almost the past 10 years to nail Donald Trump to the wall, along with anyone who was even thinking about the Capitol, let alone who might have been within a mile of the building on 1/6/21, and in that regard are considered on the front line in protecting "our precious democracy" (puke). But on the other, they're paying snitches – and Russian snitches at that! – to engage in criminal activities that might be perceived as entrapping the poor, unfortunate, put-upon struggling artist son of our greatest president (per the most honest, accurate poll ever)?!

Oh, the humanity!

Well, at least we have the GOP in or corner. Pfft.

In Joe Biden’s so-called Inflation Reduction Act, signed into law in 2022, estimates are that $1 trillion in climate pork is stuffed into the bill. For perspective, the current federal budget is roughly $7 trillion.

All this to support policies that are based on a lot of sound and fury but very little, if any, valid science. Restoration News’ Jeff Reynolds summed up nicely the flimsy nature of climate science in his recent two-part report, “How the Left’s global warming ideology wrecked science and how to stop it.” He concluded that the underlying science of Anthropogenic Global Warming has not been proven, its furtherance as an emergency policy imperative is based on massive data, temperature, and other manipulations, and all this deception is being protected through censorship aided by dutiful news media and compliant Big Tech.

For example, did you know that the U.S. EPA’s own data shows that 81 percent of U.S. weather stations report no increase in warm days since 1948?

You likely don’t know this because data like this is suffocated under a massive censorship regime that infects the highest levels of Big Science, Big Tech, and corporate liberal media. Only liberal propaganda gets through the rigid screen most of the time.

Where have Republicans been as Democrats have made deep strides in dismantling America’s robust and reliable energy supply? Mostly giving lip service and doing nothing where it counts—debating the science and scrutinizing the spending.

Big Climate’s’ 25-year blitz of propaganda on the American people has frightened Republicans from fighting back. The consultant class has convinced many GOP politicians to hedge the issue—not taking on the phony science but expressing platitudes about the environment. Thus, the propaganda on climate science, unrebutted, appears more valid as the years go by to casual news consumers.

That’s a shame, because “climate change” is a scam on many levels. Starting with the term itself, which was adopted by the left when “global warming” was too dangerously specific—and sometimes wrong. “Climate change” is the perfect propaganda phrase because it can never be disproved. All weather, cold or warm, wet or dry, is explainable as “climate change.” The phrase itself is nonsensical gaslighting—the climate has always changed and always will.

And, really. Even disregarding the Cheneys, what the fuck is wrong with Wyoming?

Carbon sequestration has become Republicans’ most popular answer to climate change, with GOP governors across western states pumping massive stores of concentrated CO2 into underground chambers. Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon, who chairs the Western Governors Association, currently leads the charge to his state’s detriment as a carbon-powerhouse and leading coal producer.

Last week, lawmakers in Wyoming heard from members of the CO2 Coalition who challenged Governor Gordon’s pledge to decarbonize the energy-intensive state with carbon capture programs. Dr. William Happer, the founder of the CO2 Coalition, compared such efforts to a “religion” before the Senate Agriculture, State and Public Lands and Water Resources Committee. . .

. . . Last year, Alaska Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy introduced a legislative package to “capitalize on carbon markets” with carbon capture programs, “particularly in Cook Inlet.”

In North and South Dakota, landowners have faced eminent domain lawsuits as a major carbon capture company constructs a more than 2,000-mile pipeline across the upper Midwest. Carbon capture projects have been championed by the states’ Republican governors, Doug Burgum and Kristi Noem.

“Today, we’re on our way toward achieving carbon neutrality as a state by 2030, thanks to our extraordinary capacity to safely store over 252 billion tons of CO2, or 50 years of the nation’s CO2 output,” Burgum said last year. “And in the process, we can help secure the future of our state’s two largest industries, energy and agriculture.”

. . . “Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the statement reads. “Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures.”

Atmospheric carbon has also been shown to proliferate forest growth, known as the “greening” effect. Vegetation happens to grow faster in regions with relatively high concentrations of carbon dioxide. Michael Shellenberger explained in his 2020 book Apocalypse Never, “From 1981 to 2016, four times more carbon was captured by plants due to carbon-boosted growth than from biomass covering a larger surface of Earth.”

Seriously, you expect this utter horseshit from the Left. But GOP politicians from fairly solidly red states, some of which like Wyoming and the Dakotas that have boomed as a result of coal and fracking and the like? And supposedly Kristi Noem is being floated as a potential veep pick for Trump.

Carbon is life. If you are anti-carbon, you are anti-life. It's just that simple. But, the GOP is the Grifting Oleaginous Parasite party. Learn it and love it. Then kill it.

Have a good weekend.

8 Happy Fricking Friday

Canethia Miller, 27, revealed that after receiving the huge windfall, she spent a majority of the cash on a week-long luxury vacation to Miami with her three kids and their father. She was handed $10,800 from a DC government pilot program. Despite her array of food stamps and subsidized housing still left her short each month, Miller confessed that she quickly splurged over $6,000 on a lavish Miami vacation. 'I wanted to blow it. I wanted to have fun,' she said.

40 Echard has maintained over the last nine months that Owens was never pregnant and that the entire lawsuit was based on fraud. Legal filings allege that Owens wore a fake pregnancy belly, provided Echard with faked sonograms, went to the media to ruin Echard’s reputation, refused discovery, and would not allow Echard to speak to her alleged doctors. Further investigation into the case found that Owens had taken at least two other men to court with similar allegations in the past.

41 Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell told reporters in Arizona that she's ordered her staff not to cooperate in any efforts to send Raad Noan Almansoori, 26, back to New York where he's wanted in connection to the slaying of Denisse Oleas-Arancibia, 38.

"This is not aimed at the New York Police Department at all. I know they did a hard job, they did a good job, but we will not be agreeing to extradition," Mitchell said. "I've instructed my extradition attorneys not to agree to that. We're going to keep him here."

Almansoori is being held without bail in Arizona, where he's been accused of stabbing two women.

"Having observed the treatment of violent criminals in the New York area by the Manhattan DA there, Alvin Bragg," Mitchell said, "I think it's safer to keep him here and keep him in custody so that he cannot be out doing this to individuals either in our state, county or anywhere in the United States."

52 “Growing numbers of children and adolescents are being prescribed multiple psychiatric drugs to take simultaneously, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Maryland. The phenomenon is increasing despite warnings that psychotropic drug combinations in young people have not been tested for safety or studied for their impact on the developing brain…

The study, published Friday in JAMA Open Network, looked at the prescribing patterns among patients 17 or younger enrolled in Medicaid from 2015 to 2020 in a single U.S. state that the researchers declined to name. In this group, there was a 9.5 percent increase in the prevalence of “polypharmacy,” which the study defined as taking three or more different classes of psychiatric medications, including antidepressants, mood-stabilizing anticonvulsants, sedatives and drugs for A.D.H.D. and anxiety drugs.”

Individuals who identified as other races (including individuals identifying as American Indian, Asian, Hispanic, or Pacific Islander, or other races) (AOR, 0.54; 95% CI, 0.50-0.59) had significantly lower odds of psychotropic polypharmacy than White individuals*.”

Rising rent is NOT inflation. Rents go up because of demand. Big Govt print money for Section 8 that then moves open market prices to government prices. There can only be 2 outcomes:
1. Less units as the fixed government price does NOT allow owner sufficient ROI.
2. Higher rents as governments pricing will force private pricing to match.

55 Thanks for the article on Robin DiAngelo from " FrontPage". I wonder what kind of life she had as a young person to become such an angry, stupid bigoted person. However, I guess she was " smart

Whether they realize it or not these people are helping create white supremacists. They keep marginalizing and slandering a group for an immutable characteristic and eventually those people will get angry enough to fight back and punish their oppressors.

64 EV sales grew 21% year-over-year in 2023, but total car sales remained relatively the same, bucking hopes that EVs would fuel growth as the automaker pushes electric models."

The EV as a toy market has ended. Meaning that the rich could have a EV at the vacation house or as the 3 or 4th family vehicle that maybe is used like the golf cart communities for a Sat or Sun jaunt.

Therefore every unit of EV is just a unit of sales, not an increase. Just like the SUV unit growth was taken from the sedan market.

Why would someone construct a device with a one-hour kitchen timer, place it 8:30 p.m. the night before, if they intended for it to detonate 16 hours later?” he asked.

Though referred to in the media as the RNC bomb, it was actually at the neighboring Capitol Hill Club, a Republican hangout. Capolino said his guards would have found it during their hourly sweeps if it was on RNC property.

I know that the UN and WEF aren't the root of all evil, but it's amazing how often you hear an American leader do something to reach as Climate goal "by 2030" or "by 2035" or "by 2050."

Any time I see one of those dates I know that it ties back to globalist roadmap set out in Davos or Turtle Bay by a coalition of world leaders and industry titans. Goals that were never discussed with the citizens of this country, let along agreed upon.

OMG, yes. I've seen ads for years with the pitch: "Has your anti-depressant stopped working? Take this new drug on top of your existing drug to boost its effectiveness!"

Like, if your anti-depressant isn't working you have bigger problems -- life problems you need to deal with. Not passively with happy pills, but with personal action - eat better, be active, shed whatever things you can that depress you (obviously, there are things that can't be fixed, like dead loved ones, etc.). But seriously, this is all so messed up: take more and more pills to dull the pain cannot be the best solution for most.

What California does in the next couple years will decide the course of EV lunacy. Several years ago Cali enacted a law going into effect in a year or two, incrementally raising CAFE for autos sold in the state so high, that only a high and ever-increasing number of non-fossil fuel autos sold there by any manufacturer would meet the CAFE number.

The law has a built-in out, though. The Cali state officer responsible for the state's CAFE requirements is empowered to delay the CAFE increases. The Cali auto market is so large that all large-volume manufacturers produce their entire output to be Cali-compliant. We shall see what Cali does. Sane or insane EV policy?

142 I really had high hopes that Todd Rokita would be a solid Gov or Senator for IN. I am really disappoint.

As AG of IN, he is making the argument to SCOTUS that 1, the case of the parents suing the state because DCS took their kid because they wouldn't accept her gender transition is moot because the kid is over 18 now. And moreover, the state can take a transgender kid from its parents, then refuse to return the kid, if the parents don't accept the new gender as long as the original reason for taking the kid wasn't transgender related. So the state can make a vague claim of "abuse", and after the abuse claim is tossed, the state still keeps the kid because the parents aren't affirming.

Four students walked out of the class in outrage, and then filed slanderous and false complaints to the administration, which then fired Varkey without due process.

Fun fact: Herridge sued Fox News for gender discrimination, won (IIRC), and continued to work there for several years after.

I imagine CBS offered here a great deal (to bury her work, but still), and given her history at Fox plus the changes as the Murdoch son took over, she made the best decision for herself at the time. Just a guess...

It probably was.

I am fully in favor of keeping kids off of social media, and think it is a good idea. But I also know that any law to do so, in this environment, will not only fail to achieve the goal but will instead be used to destroy privacy while removing transparency so that kids can not only access social media at least as easily as today, but then also be groomed in private.

So while objectively I do actually think the sinful thought that "there ought to be a law...," I also know how that actually works and so I don't think that at all when it comes to reality. Parents should keep it away from their kids, though.

My town is reasonably sane about this. We have two cans. The trash bin is an enormous 96 gallon job. The recycling bin is the 64 gallon size. On some routes, they'll decline to pick up the recycling bin if it has trash in it, but that's it. On the routes with the robo-truck, I think they just assume it's all good.

287 Nikki isn't plotting toward 2028. She wants it now. She's pinning it all on Trump's conviction and being the last one standing. Of course, her only saleable rationale for staying in the race is to be the anti-Trump. The others, who were more or less MAGA, realized they couldn't compete with the original. But Haley has sold her political soul for this identity. It won't end well for her. She'll end up being either derided as a loser or despised as a traitor by everybody.

I thought that for awhile too, but it doesn’t compute. The timing of Trump’s trials and the RNC convention (and of course what GOP primary voters clearly want) means there’s 0% chance (not even epsilon…. Zero) that she can get the nomination this time. She must know this (heck even I know it)…. So she has to have another angle

Every person, every institution, every state, every nation who possess solar power panels should file a class action lawsuit against them.

Either they are spewing potentially hazardous chemicals into the atmosphere which will have no effect on the amount of sunlight reaching the surface - in which case they should be executed for hazarding the health of the entire planet - or it will reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the surface - in which case they have, effectively, stolen from everyone with a solar panel.

Did Trump? Yes, very much so to the detriment of our own government thugs and their allies in Russia and Iran.

Heh. Reminds me of a time I went to a deli to buy a sandwich when I was living in upstate NY. Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train" was playing on the PA and the guy behind the counter was singing along with it while making my sandwich - except he wasn't. He sang, "going off the rails on the gravy train!" His coworker called him on it and they had an argument. Dude was *certain* that Ozzy was talking about being thrown from the gravy train, with life gettin' harder.

Eventually, he said, "well, let's ask this guy." I broke the news to him pretty gently. He took it well, though asserted that it *should* have been "gravy train." I can't listen to that song now without hearing it. It's been an ear worm for me for decades now.

Concur. Back in the 90's, there was a little money in glass and aluminum all the way to red China. But the bottom fell out and today all your "recycling" is a waste of time as it all goes to the same place to be picked over by little brown folks for anything "valuable". Back in the day there was grant money and other dollars stolen from the tax payers to "help" places start their recycling programs as well as the force of law. Absolute nonsense.

It probably was.

I am fully in favor of keeping kids off of social media, and think it is a good idea. But I also know that any law to do so, in this environment, will not only fail to achieve the goal but will instead be used to destroy privacy while removing transparency so that kids can not only access social media at least as easily as today, but then also be groomed in private.

So while objectively I do actually think the sinful thought that "there ought to be a law...," I also know how that actually works and so I don't think that at all when it comes to reality. Parents should keep it away from their kids, though.

427 There’s a wonderful old Christian hymn we sang in church when I was a child: When the roll is called up yonder

When the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there 🎶

As a kid, I always heard: When the roll is called a pyonder….

And I’d think “a roll is a roll and a pyonder is a pyonder (whatever that is)”…. What would they call one the other. It confused me…. Didn’t realize until much later it’s talking about being called to heaven and that roll is the Lamb’s book of life

Hope they win.
In December 2021, the actor sued the network, claiming it refused to accommodate his religious objections. In an order granting summary judgment, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Goorvitch sided with ABC, which argued that Rademacher’s opposition to the vaccine was grounded in health reasons rather than his religious beliefs. Goorvitch had taken dueling motions under submission after an April 5 hearing and on Monday issued a brief order granting Disney’s and denying Rademacher’s but has not yet issued a detailed ruling.

According to Deborah Davis’ 1979 book Katharine The Great: Katharine Graham and `The Washington Post’: “Paley’s own friendship with [former CIA Director] Allen Dulles is now known to have been one of the most influential and significant in the communications industry; he provided cover for CIA agents, supplied outtakes of new films, debriefed reporters, and in many ways set the standard for future cooperation between the CIA and the major broadcast companies.”

The reason societies like this all fail eventually is that the biggest error any society can ever make is to give all of its high intelligence, high performing members a strong incentive to overthrow the system.

523 A handyman-turned-squatter hunter, Flash Shelton, is concerned that lenient tenants’ rights laws in various states could lead to a squatting crisis as more migrants enter the U.S. Squatters’ rights and tenants’ protections vary across the country, with some states allowing non-paying individuals to occupy a property for extended periods. This can make it difficult for homeowners to reclaim their properties through legal means.

Shelton warns that the influx of migrants crossing the southern border could exacerbate the squatting problem. He advocates for reforming laws to deter squatting and questions the long-term consequences of allowing the practice to continue.

"I will tell [Shmyhal] that I am against the membership of Ukraine in NATO and that I will veto it," Fico said, adding that if Ukraine were in NATO, “some conflicts will be constantly instigated there,” and “once a clash happens between Russia and a NATO member state, we will have a world war."

Apologizing for my careless yet again. Don't say it. (Ageism!) Yes, indeed, several material distinctions would exist between the two cases. Mr. Trump WAS the U.S. President. Mr Biden WAS NOT the U. S. President over the years he was lifting - is that a good description? whatever - classified government documents from the White House & also others under the control of the U.S. Senate, legislative branch.

Has Mr. Trump written a book, on his own or ghost written - using any classified materials/documents allegedly within his possession - since his departure from the WH?

Mr. Biden blamed his staff(s) improperly packing documents when he left office as Veep. No one was charged. Mr. Trump has staff charged with Fed. crimes?
