The Morning Report 4/20/20

Good morning, kids. Monday, and another grim milestone of yet another day and week of America held hostage. Whether you are of the belief as I am that the unprecedented locking down of the citizenry and concomitant strangulation of the entire economy was a wild overreaction or not, there is growing discontent among said citizenry and calls for a lifting of the siege. Despite the lack of reliable information and massive disinformation coming from the source of the Peking Pulmonary Pox, and the ginning up of fear by the Democrat-Media Complex to keep people cowering in their homes, the numbers just don’t add up to the Andromeda Strain Black Death this is being sold as. 

From the original computer model estimates that are revised downward by orders of magnitude on a daily basis, to healthcare workers and hospitals sitting around idle waiting for waves of mass casualties that have yet to materialize to the juicing of the stats by politicians and the pseudo-scientists in service to them to list death with Chinese Coronavirus as death from Chinese Coronavirus, this entire thing stinks on ice. And people know it. This is why you are seeing the protesters who defy the loathsome dictatorial pronouncements of scum like Gretchen Whitmer being smeared by the Democrat-Media Complex. President Trump has nothing but praise for people who, rather than helplessly watch as their lives and futures are destroyed, rise up in protest. Like the President himself, most folks went along with the initial closures and restrictions. But when Democrat governors and mayors suspend religious freedom, prohibit the sale of things like hardware and seeds and arrest people for surfing or fishing hundreds of yards from anyone, while at the same time insisting that abortion clinics, lottery and cigarettes are necessary, as well as emptying the jails, then the collective BS Detector of the citizenry just pinned into the red zone.

I find it funny, as in nauseating in the extreme that Jay Inslee, the dolt crackpot governor of Washington State who calls Trump’s support for the protests as inciting “insubordination” and “illegal activity” when he and his cohorts had nothing but praise for waves of Central American border jumpers along with the Antifa terrorist thugs and BLM rioters. No, those were shining examples of the First Amendment by stellar examples of humanity. As for what they regard as the masses of untermenschen inhabiting a vast wasteland between the Acela Corridor and Napa Valley, they have nothing but rabid contempt and hatred. Then again, the People’s Republic of New Jersey is itself experiencing uppity behavior in the suburban NYC community of Elizabeth, where a woman has been charged with plotting to violate Phil Murphy’s stay-at-home order. Yeah, that’s Nuremberg-level criminality. No, not the woman and the post-war trials but Murphy and the pre-war rallies. Here’s the kicker; Jersey, along with about 20 other states, are actually deploying surveillance drones made in Communist China (by slave labor, no doubt) to enforce the mass imprisonments. Of course, Bill De Bolshevik likes doing things the old fashioned Stasi way by encouraging New Yorkers to snitch on any miscreant who dares defy the social distancing edict. 

…This pandemic has laid bare the intentions of our self-appointed betters in Washington, the media, and beyond. They have shown no desire for national unity, pushing policies to empower only themselves. They manipulate people’s worst fears, knowing that’s the surest way to get them to lay down their liberties.

We should be able to see a God-complex at work in all this control-freak behavior, and we should not fear calling out that behavior for what it is. If this seems over-the-top to American readers, that’s because we aren’t used to living under totalitarian rule.

Consider that the 1.4 billion people of communist China are at the mercy of this mindset every day, an atheistic mentality hostile to religion and intent on destroying churches and any assembly that does not put the state first. People intent on playing god do not want to compete with the one living God as they try to control the lives of others.

That mindset brought on the miseries of human history. Our founders recognized it because they saw that failing in human nature, and therefore in themselves. There was a time when Americans were taught that the central purpose of the Constitution was to keep that impulse in check so we could have individual liberties. When we refuse to see the urge in ourselves, we are far less able to keep it in check.

We should call out this mindset wherever we see it, and that means questioning the motives of anyone who continuously pushes for policies that undermine individual liberties and build a mass state with a tiny elite controlling us all. No more should Americans simply attribute the totalitarian impulse to good intentions gone astray – certainly not while our economy is on its knees and the nation has undergone the trauma of the media’s fear-mongering. The stakes are just too high.

This situation is intolerable. It cannot go on. It must not go on. It’s getting to the point where it must not be allowed to go on. Infer from that what you will. That said, my fear is that we have crossed a Rubicon, insofar as the Left now sees how easy it is to grab total control. Had any other Republican from the 2016 field been President, I think this would have been lights out for America. That said, Trump will not be President forever, despite the Left’s insane fever dreams to the contrary. This situation, though it may not seem so right now, still is only temporary and we’ll come out of it. But long term, unless the Democrat-Media Complex, the unelected, unaccountable Deep State bureaucracy and the brainwashing mills of academia are somehow brought to heel, we are not going to be voting our way out of the inevitable showdown. 

That said, maybe there is some hope that those who are either completely blinkered or kneejerk Democrat-Leftist have had their eyes opened with this. Anecdotally, my aunt, who in her professional life was a biochemist at Mt. Sinai Hospital, who loves Trump and hates the Left, still had trepidations about the danger of Chinese Lung AIDS. Perhaps it’s because she’s pushing 90 and even getting a bad cold would be a danger to her health. But she’s a highly intelligent person of science. So my conversation with her yesterday did not fill me with strength and confidence, despite my efforts to lay out the mountain of evidence that this whole thing is most like a gigantic psychological warfare operation.

I hope that the incident in bluer-than-blue state New Jersey is the bellwether and not my aunt.



The bulk of the links underscore the fact that this pandemic is not the extinction-level event that it’s being made out as. 


The big news is that a deal has been struck to fund the Paycheck Protection Program, Walmart on a hiring spree, the blue-state Bolsheviks are trying to hatch some sort of plan to upstage Trump, Pritzker wants billions to bail out Illinois’ bankrupt pensions which has nothing to do with the plague, and the costs of stress and human misery will far exceed the toll from the Sino Sinus Syphilis.


GOP says summer national convention is a go, China is Biden’s Achilles heel and Trump knows it, Nazi war criminal Soros-backed, terror-loving, Joo-hating Muslim group endorses Biden, Biden clueless and inept on foreign policy, the attempt to make Nipsy the hero of the hour (yeah, he’s going to be drafted like a beer in Milwaukee), Malig-Nancy Pelosi dissembles on her Chinatown remarks, Dems see a path to taking the Senate, Chris Coons wants billions to help steal the November election via what amounts to mass mail fraud, David Horowitz on how the Dems love them some chaos and misery, Bernie never had it in him, but Trump should beware of him, Biden and the Left.


Suddenly, there’s lots of activity vis a vis perhaps a reckoning for the Deep State criminals who attempted to overthrow the Trump presidency. Also, at the bottom, the perfect illustration of the two-tiered justice system. AG Barr, you need to prosecute this sick bastard with FBI credentials.


But Sarah Palin was literally Hitler for putting a target on someone.


They ain’t wrong.


Sanity from one judge, Trump rips into a CBS hack propagandist for a not cunning grandstanding stunt, and lastly PDT rips Fox and Chris Wallace for his horrid Malig-Nancy Pelosi interview.


Could it be they don’t like the antics of Whitmer, Murphy, et al?


Baby-killing is still essential in times of plague.


Commies crack down on Hong Kong protestors who I guess never went away, is Taiwan ripe for invasion, Trump rips the stats from Iran and China, also warns the Commies of consequences for the plague that they covered up, Chi-Coms not giving in on disputed islands, is our own State Department also guilty of malfeasance in this, White House sends WHO funds elsewhere, Peter Navarro on how China now imports PPE, WHO looks to Hollywood commies for help, Iran pushing us towards war means they might be about to crumble, centuries-old European breweries might go under thanks to Peking Pox, and lastly 16 people are dead after Canada’s worst mass shooting in Nova Scotia. Prayers for the victims.


Paging Governor Sitz-Pritzker…


Now that is a good question, and Canuck bank seeks to persecute those whose politics they don’t like.


Tick-tock-tick-tock, thank goodness we have plentiful power, and this plague is going to hit the fitness biz hard, perhaps fatally.


Daniel Greenfield on the real plague that has ravaged Chicago for decades, beware scammers and “remain blessed,” and well done Sheriff Chronister. Madness.


No, homeschooling promotes deprogramming, hence the opposition, and as if American kids weren’t dumb enough, the lockdowns will make them dumber. At least that’s the author’s premise.


To serve vegans, it’s a cookbook…


Our intrepid science reporter with a red planet diversion.


Dan Crenshaw shuts Bill Maher down, Christian Toto on Maher trying to warn the Dems, the virus as the igniter of human nature, Amity Shlaes’ latest as an indictment of the War on Povery, a must-watch documentary, novelist Jack Carr speaks, and 25 years on, how the Oklahoma City bombing shaped America.
