The Morning Report — 4/18/24

mastersandjohnson.jpg

Good morning, kids. Let me just get this off my chest. Me calling Malig-Nancy Pelosi a warped, venal C-U-Next-Tuesday is, to swipe part of Martin Sheen's dialogue from Apocalypse Now! "like handing out speeding tickets at the Indianapolis 500." Her nakedly prevaricated words in supposed defense of Israel slid off one side of her halitosis-tinged forked tongue while off the other she declared Benjamin Netanyahu to be a bloodthirsty war monger who had to be deposed.

For anyone who considers himself/herself/they-self to be a Jew, a classic liberal or even a Democrat a la JFK or Harry Truman (and let's face it, that concept was and is pure mythology given the actual bloody history of that party since Burr murdered Hamilton in cold blood), and continue to vote for and support that party is insanity. It's living a lie, unconsciously or worse, with one's eyes wide open.

So desperate are they to cling to power, because they truly are on the verge of seizing absolute power forever, that they are doing everything they can to court a voting bloc comprised of those who excused and/or orgasmically cheered on the greatest mass-slaughter of Jews since Birkenau and Babi Yar (words and concepts now ignored in our schools or if uttered can be cited as "hate speech"), that they actually green-lit Iran's mass drone attack on Israel which, depending on how Israel responds (and they must and will) could lead to a regional war that could go global. If not nuclear.

Insanity. Incompetence. Ideology. Put those three words in any combination you want, with or without hyphens to construct one or more adverbs or adjectives, and it adds up to the same thing.

That's Pelosi. That's the Democrat-Left. But that said, what the actual hell is the GOP? The former will obviously get a complete pass from a media that shamelessly and openly serves as their cheerleaders and disseminators of agitprop. Yet, someone like Marjorie Taylor-Greene gets ripped to shreds, not just from the Left but from the Right. Or to be more specific, from the pseudo-right.

She was among those who led the charge to dump Frank Luntz's useless cabana boy Kevin McCarthy from the speakership for his actions and inactions in either blocking Junta policy or advancing conservatism. That is, the will of the most put upon minority-majority in history: American-Americans. Well, she and others managed to replace him. Yet in the end, all they did was swap deck chairs on the Titanic.

With most Americans absolutely opposed to any further wastage of money we do not have on Ukraine, and screaming for our slimmest of slim majorities in the House to block the Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants Junta as it continues to erase our border and flood us with millions of foreign peasants, criminals and terrorists, what does he do? Call for billions more to Ukraine as well as some lesser sum to Israel, ostensibly as a shrewd move to get the Dems to vote "no" and lay the blame on them while getting absolutely nothing in return to seal the damned border and halt the invasion.

So MTG is out to oust Johnson. Is this the right thing to do so close to an election, and with only a one-vote majority in the House? Say what you will about that, but the reason we have only a one-vote majority is because Ronna Romney McDaniel and the Grifting Oleaginous Parasites sabotaged what should have been a red wave '22 midterm election and worse, a wave of sudden GOP resignations that stink of a preemptive strike at Donald Trump and the MAGA movement in anticipation of his return to the Oval Office.

Note, the funding bill for Ukraine and Israel is being lauded by Biden and the Junta and his cue cards indicate that he's eager to sign off on it ASAP, pending the selection/sharpening of whatever color he chooses from his Crayola 64-pack.

If that's not enough, insult meet injury:

The inside story of how House Speaker Mike Johnson was flip-flopped on Ukraine aid starts with his top policy adviser, a former lobbyist whose clients include a number of major companies who have issued corporate statements indicating some kind of interest in the war.

Johnson’s policy director, Dan Ziegler, was–until he joined the Speaker’s office as his top policy aide when Johnson won the Speakership last year–a lobbyist with the firm Williams & Jensen. He had previously worked for Johnson in other capacities, but left Johnson to become a lobbyist and accumulated a client list that included several top companies–some of which seem to have a financial interest in seeing Congress pass Ukraine aid. The lobbying firm for which he worked represents a number of top companies. Lobbying disclosures reveal Ziegler represented many of these companies, including several that have made corporate statements about the war in Ukraine or issued press statements or other public guidance saying it could affect their business operations.

What’s more, Ziegler also represented the highly controversial News Media Alliance, which was lobbying Congress when he worked for Williams & Jensen to push a dangerous proposal that would have severely hurt conservative media. That proposal, called the Journalism Competition & Preservation Act (JCPA), has died several times in Congress but has kept coming back to life thanks to lobbyist pressure.

Ziegler is not the only one in Johnson’s inner circle who has issues. Several other staffers working for Johnson  have a series of troubling developments in their backgrounds, and as of now it is unclear if the Speaker himself is aware of all of this or not. Either way, this raises serious questions about his management of the conference and his handling of major legislative proposals like the foreign aid plan before Congress this week–and it undercuts the explanation several Johnson apologists have offered up that he is just having a tough time managing a one-seat majority and things would not be different if he resigned and Republicans picked a new Speaker. . .

. . .The Speaker intends to set up a Saturday evening vote in the House of Representatives on the plan that completely abandons border security and instead pushes to funnel tens of billions more U.S. tax dollars to foreign countries like Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. In a string of recent betrayals by the Speaker–the recent government funding plan and last week’s reauthorization of section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) without a requirement for warrants for surveillance on American citizens–this one stings America First conservatives even more.

Despite calls for his resignation from top conservative Republicans like Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Thomas Massie (R-KY)–who say they are prepared to vote to remove Johnson by force if necessary–Johnson has tripled down in moving forward on the matter, not just completely ignoring conservatives aligned with former President Donald Trump who are openly criticizing the effort, but authorizing staff and allies like House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) to attack them in order to achieve congressional passage of this radical agenda.

But Marjorie Taylor-Greene is an unprincipled, undisciplined, loose cannon wackadoo that needs to shut up, sit down and behave or else, or else . . . or else what?

Meh, what do these bills mean anyway when Joey's puppet masters pull shit like decreeing student loan debt forgiveness – for the second or third time already (I've lost count) – despite a Supreme Court decision declaring it unconstitutional and illegal?

How is that EO even carried out in practical terms? And doesn't the House of Representatives control the purse strings? I'm sure Mike Johnson will be all over this, right? Pfft. Well, at least he's tight with . . . Jake Tapper.

Speaking of the border and the GOP stepping on a rake, the vote to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas was effectively shut down in the Senate by Chuck Schemer. Even if it succeeded, Mayorkas would've been replaced with someone equally ideological and incompetent and nothing would have effectively changed. The Deep State bench is indeed dark and very, very deep.

That said, considering that the open border and all the concomitant disasters that have happened with the massive invasion of foreigners as a result has made it the #1 issue that will decide the election. Dao-Min Yen, martial law and/or assassination by the courts or otherwise of Trump notwithstanding, did the Dems blow it?

Here's something to consider. Maybe this time, the Dems stepped on a rake by not making Mayorkas the scapegoat, declaring the problem solved and screaming "Roe Roe Roe the Vote!" nonstop for the next seven months, or however long it will take to find the counterfeit ballots to put Biden over the top.

C'mon, now! I need something, anything, to cling to!

She is Trump in a skirt and without the wealth. She is unhinged, uncouth, and every form of -ist.

She has committed the great crime of believing that the GOP in Congress should do the things that they always promise. That they should actually represent their voters, and not the intelligence community or the cabal of globalist billionaires who've purchased the rest of the government.

And for that, she must be destroyed.

And as you stated, all we've done is rearrange the chairs on the Titanic. I'd say it's time to just walk away from the GOP entirely.

I'm not a MTG fan. But she's right on the money here. Johnson's a weasel (the bad kind) and has reneged on whatever "deal" was made between him and the conservatives that ousted McCarthy.

Perhaps she should claim the speaker's chair herself?

Of course she'd never get it because that's not who the Republican party is. Thus... the entire problem with our so-called party.

Iran doesn't care if Iran gets destroyed because the people running Iran believe that an apocalypse, even just a regional one, will usher in final victory for their brand of their religion. And they're serious about it.

Does that mean that we shouldn't act? No. But it does mean that people who pretend to know better should stop pretending that Iran is concerned that they've gone too far.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but MTG was among McCarthy's biggest fans. She was *not* on board with getting rid of him.

This is why I take her action against Johnson with a Chris Christie-sized grain of salt. She may well still be doing McCarthy's bidding. Not that Johnson is good - he's a typical swamp rat. But MTG's hands are not clean on this issue.

She is an attractive, young blond who isn't woke in an industry that keeps shoving people like Zendaya, Rachel Zegler and Lizzo in our faces. She's refreshingly feminine and heterosexual. She is from a culture they despise and are actively destroying. I have no idea what her politics are, which in itself is amazing given the activist stridence of young Hollywood.

Everything Hollywood has done in the last decade or so to destroy the past culture, such as ruining the cash cow Star Wars, demonstrates the dedication to their ideology at all costs. They will burn it all down to replace it with their new progressive entertainment utopia, comrades!

91 RealClearInvestigations was the first to identify the then-33-year-old Ciaramella as the anonymous impeachment “whistleblower,” something major media continue to keep under tight wraps.

… why ??

Yet there is no evidence Ciaramella raised alarms about the questionable Biden business activities he witnessed firsthand, which is in sharp contrast to 2019. In that instance, he was galvanized into action after being told by White House colleague Alexander Vindman of an “improper” phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

They will also become extremely repressive and violent, since they'll no longer have an illusion of representative government to keep the opposition complacently scribbling on bits of paper instead of facing reality, and they'll no longer have a heel for their own flock to blame for everything.

It's time to prepare for this, and start thinking about what opposition outside the political system will look like. Soon all normies, from "both" parties, will be openly locked out of the process. The real deal one-party state, instead of this ersatz one.

139 The law Ritchson complains about does the following, according to the governor's statement:

HB 601 does the following:

~Prevents anti-police activists from carrying out extrajudicial investigations against law enforcement.

~Codifies the creation of “Civilian Oversight Boards” to ensure they are directed by a county sheriff or chief of police and are comprised of at least three to seven members, all of whom are appointed by the sheriff or chief of police.
At least one member must be a retired law enforcement officer.
~Ensures that misconduct allegations will be investigated by those properly trained and equipped to handle such investigations, such as Internal Affairs Departments or the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC).
~Increases all county sheriffs’ base salaries by $5,000 for each population group.


In short, it makes investigations of minor league police misconduct allegations a professional responsibility issue and not a political witch-hunt.

Of course, allegations of criminal misconduct are, as always, left to prosecutors.

185 "White Christian Nationalism: Threat or mirage?"

The White Christian Nationalism bogeyman is the latest move by the Leftists to splinter white voters. They led-off with "People in Flyover Country," moved-on to "Teabaggers," then "MAGA," then "White Supremacists," and are now are politically distilling evil Whites down to "White Christian Nationalists."

The Leftists know they still need a lot of white voters. More than ever this year if a lot of minorities switch to voting Republican. So they're working to get more and more whites to say themselves, "Hey, I'm not a Christian. I'm not one of the hillbillies the Media hates and the FBI tells me are evil rayciss killers in white sheets! I'm not a threat to People of Color, Trannys, and Our Precious Democracy. I don't want to prohibit all abortions. I'd better vote Democrat to prove I'm a good White Person and keep those evil Rayciss White Christian Fundamentalist MAGA Anti-Abortion loons from gaining power!"

This reportedly sparked an internal “drag audit,” resulting in the elimination of drag performances from the Smithsonian’s 2024 calendar. Smithsonian staff members who wished to remain anonymous have interpreted this as an act of censorship by Bunch and his team. . .

219 Leading Report @LeadingReport 10h
BREAKING: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has introduced multiple amendments to the Ukraine aid bill.

One requiring members to “conscript in the Ukrainian military” if they vote for the Ukraine supplemental bill.

Two that would divert 100% of the funds to support the victims of East Palestine, Ohio, and Maui, Hawaii.

220 Donald Trump wanted the riot to succeed and install him as President..(that is why he did nothing to stop it). It is the bottom line about Donald Trump.. * It is all about him and only him." He had the power to stop the riot right away, and he didn't. (if the riot injured people or killed them, I don't think Trump cared at all. It was all about installing him as President.

100% and he didn't care how many died from covid on his watch. He is a really sick individual.

He wanted enough violence to justify - The Insurrection Act, put troops on the ground and declare martial law.

someone testified at the J6 hearings that some advisors and SS refused to take Trump to the Capitol on J6 because they feared that he would use the chaos to dissolve Congress and declare himself the official winner. That would have amounted to installing himself as dictator with no Congressional opposition. His militias were present with an arms stash to enforce his declaration against protests.

Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has been deluged with criticism for his Oct. 30 conversation with Chinese Gen. Gen. Li Zuocheng, which was chronicled by authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa in their new book “Peril.”

At issue is what exactly Milley told Li to assure him that then-President Donald Trump had no plans to order a pre-emptive strike against China.

“General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years,” the book claims Milley told Li, according to the Washington Post. “If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

289 According to the report, three firms — State Street Global Advisors, Newton Capital Management, and Westfield Capital Management — have used some of the $1.7 billion they manage for OPERS’ portfolio to support at least 216 ESG-tinged proposals
=================
Funnily enough, a friend's daughter worked for Westfield up until about a year ago, when she changed firms, and the Westfield owner was described to me as obnoxiously and hypocritically woke as you can imagine. She particularly mocked him for whining constantly about Climate Change while flying all over in his private jets, and claiming he wants to pay more taxes but moving from Boston to Wyoming.

Was Trump on that call? No. Then HOW WOULD HE HAVE KNOWN?

Who was Trump's Secretary of Defense? The guy who would have suggested Milley? Wasn't is Mattis? Weren't we all excited over Mattis? Didn't he turn out to be a shit?

At this point your choices are Trump or Biden. Deal.

297 My comments are neither snide, nor passive aggressive. You make excuses for Trump that are objectively dishonest to cover for his obvious weaknesses. When I point that out, you gripe "Just vote for Biden, then!" which, again, passive aggressive.

Try telling the guy you're done with the drama. Stop covering for his excuses. Put the pressure on him to change his behavior instead of carrying his water. We need a competent and angry Trump in the White House, not another four years of trolling.

Considering the price he and his family have paid I'm sure he sees it as well as anyone.

The problem I have with the constant Monday morning quarterbacking is nobody really saw how deep the rot went from the outside and any one claims they did is lying. Did Trump make mistakes? Of course he did. The last perfect guy got nails to a cross.

Ron spent years in DC, did he ever identify all of the deep state creatures? Did he even talk about it? We are up against decades of entrenched deceit both here and abroad including people we've never even heard of. Anyone who wades into that swamp with the intention of fighting it will make mistakes and get betrayed.

The key is finding someone who will keep fighting and actually wins battles.

313 Where does Trump get his power? The people in the blogs and other social media. If you stop making excuses for him, he will change his behavior. He's a salesman. You are giving him the power to continue being a troll and while you think that's hilarious, a good portion of the country does not and will not vote for it. They find it offensive and horrible. You can say tough, but they are really deciding between an imbecile who craps his pants in public and wanders lost at news conferences and can't finish a sentence and has destroyed the economy and Trump. They're still on the fence. It's worth damping it down a little to get those votes.

And for the record, I don't care about the trolling as long as it's effective. It's lost its effectiveness. People are tired of the routine. They want someone strong and serious. They want reassurance.

Regarding Sununu, the NH Gov., he isn't dumb. I think he is seeing the support Trump has. And if Sununu has any future political plans (Senate? POTUS run?) he is going to need Trump supporters' votes. I think he is doing what the GOPe has been asking us voters to do every election day for the past 30+ years. Hold your nose and vote.

>DoD and DoD contractor funding of the top foreign policy think tanks in the United States
>Defense industry funded think tanks offer support for U.S. military responses to the war in Ukraine
>Media mentions of the top U.S. foreign policy think tanks related to the Ukraine war

323 Cont'd - United World International, 1/17/24 - US is preparing a Marshall Plan for Ukraine In part,

"The US think tank RAND Corporation, the so-called “shadow CIA”, has published a report outlining the main methods for the reconstruction of post-war Ukraine by the Western bloc. The report emphasized that the US should be the country to militarily “defend” Ukraine.

The idea that “the Russian-Ukrainian war is nearing its end” has started a debate on post-war policies. The article, prepared by the US-based think tank RAND Corporation, calls for the EU to shoulder the financial burden of reconstruction and for the US to provide military protection...."

Yale Insights, Faculty Viewpoints, 02/15/24, 'What the U.S. Has to Gain from Supporting Ukraine Prof. Jeffrey Sonnnenfeld and co-author Steven Tian write that spending on weapons and aid boosts the U.S. economy, strengthens the NATO alliance, and weakens the Russian war machine'

But, the most fascinating thing to me, when I look back at Trump's impeachment, is how precisely it ties in to defense contractors. Absolute, strategic, progressive theater.

In part, "Our lives have been defined by national service. We are not career politicians. We are veterans of the military and of the nation’s defense and intelligence agencies. Our service is rooted in the defense of our country on the front lines of national security.

We have devoted our lives to the service and security of our country, and throughout our careers, we have sworn oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States many times over. Now, we join as a unified group to uphold that oath as we enter uncharted waters and face unprecedented allegations against President Trump."

(Trump affecting defense profiteering and new, young, perhaps naïve, politicians positioned front & center to lead the charge.)

>WaPo, 09/23/19, Trump denies explicitly tying U.S. military aid to demand for Ukrainian probe of Biden
