The Morning Report 7/28/22

Good morning, kids. Thursday and is anybody really surprised that Joe Manchin caved and signed on to the watered down version of the Build Bolshevism Bigger bill? Many of us, and I’m ashamed to say myself included, believed that his torpedoing of the original multi-trillion dollar insanity was because he too saw it as insane, despite being pimped by everyone in his party. It was also supposed to be the crowning jewel of this illegitimate junta that would see it go from victory to victory in the ensuing years. Manchin effectively blocking it derailed their domestic agenda, or theoretically anyway. Now, supposedly, he’s revived it. 

In recent weeks, Manchin shot down Democrat attempts at pushing through Biden’s agenda, and reportedly told Democratic leaders he would “unequivocally” refuse to support legislation related to climate change and tax increases.

Now, the West Virginia senator claims reconciling with Democrats on this package will help the country fight inflation.

“We must be honest about the economic reality America now faces if we want to avoid fanning the flames of inflation,” Manchin said in a statement Wednesday. “At its core, the purpose of reconciliation is to get our economic and financial house in order. Contrary to foolish talk otherwise, America cannot spend its way out of debt or out of inflation.”The revival of Biden’s agenda comes as the president has faced mounting criticism from his own party for failing to implement significant policy over his first year and a half in office. Democrats will use the budget reconciliation process to bypass the Senate filibuster and advance the bill along party lines, potentially giving the party a much-needed legislative victory before a midterm election where Democrats are expected to face a “red wave.”

To pass the package, Democrats still might need to convince Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who has voiced opposition to elements of Biden’s spending agenda. Axios reported that hours after Manchin’s surprise reversal, a spokesperson for Sinema said the Arizona senator did not have a comment on the bill because “she will need to review the text.”

Yeah, this bill will reduce inflation the same as pouring a supertanker-sized lard-glucose cocktail down Jerry Nadler’s maw will slim him down so much that Tank Abrams will lose the weight. Complete farce. At the beginning of this Kalorama Komintern Klown show, the original BBB bill was rightly feared as a national kill shot (the stolen election I guess merely put us in a coma). 

Yet all the disasters since then makes this a moot point, at least from a political perspective. The only thing it will do is enrage an already terrified and enraged citizenry. As for Joe Manchin, he’s a whore. Probably the highest paid whore in history to date but a whore nonetheless. 

Among the many pearls of wisdom of the great Milton Friedman is this gem:

“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”

With that in mind, I cannot understand how West Virginians keep sending this asshole to Congress. Considering his party’s open vow to destroy oil, gas and coal, it’s even more of a puzzler. And let’s not hold our breath over Senator Kinky Boots either. But why should I direct my ire at them when we have our wonderful GOP as a bulwark — pun definitely intended — to protect us?

Let’s climb on board the “wayback machine” and take a journey to the distant time of summer, 2021. To fulfill his “return to normalcy” pledge, Joe Biden was demanding a budget-busting (and inflation-triggering) $1.2T for infrastructure, and another $5T for Build Back Better (to apparently build it back better after he gets done breaking it). Republicans (of the Vichy RINO variety) feverishly negotiated with the Dems to avoid fiscal Armageddon. They successfully negotiated Armageddon down to a mere total disaster — agreeing to give the Dems a paltry $1.2T to distribute to their leftist pals.

President Asterisk held a rose garden announcement for the big reveal — showing the world the sting they had just pulled off. He announced on national television that he and the congressional Democrats had dupped the Republicans. He was taking the infrastructure bill to the bank, and the Democrats would be pursuing the Build Back Better bill through reconciliation. The Republicans hadn’t negotiated the Democrats down from anything. Playing the part of Charlie Brown, the Republicans had taken one more shot at the football.

And there they were, the Vichy RINOs — standing right next to Biden — grinning like the village idiots he had made them. It was a learning opportunity — if the RINOs had any capacity to learn. The whole episode once again proved the adage that there’s a sucker born every minute.

Well, a few minutes have passed since then and the Republicans are lining up to prove that the adage is still alive and well in Washington, D.C. After the Uvalde school shooting, the calls for sensible gun control — from people who want total gun confiscation — became a cacophony. But knowing that they’d probably control Congress next year, and could do anything they wished to address the problem, wasn’t enough for the RINOs. They decided to throw the Dems a lifeline now. They jumped right on the “let’s make fools of the Republicans again” bandwagon.

They negotiated a gun-safety bill with the Democrats, that was short on “negotiation” and missed the “safety” point entirely. You see, when the RINOs are involved, negotiating means deciding how much of the Democrats wish list they’ll surrender on. Somehow “compromise” never means getting something in return. . . 

. . . Now the House Judiciary Committee is discussing an assault weapons ban — which if passed will also be a mere temporary stop on the road total gun confiscation. When accused of trying to ban guns in common use, Chairman “I didn’t soil myself” Nadler responded, “That’s the point.” He should have added, “Haven’t you been paying attention?” Which of course, they haven’t been.

I have a couple of questions for the Republicans. Do you feel stupid yet? Or are you too dumb to realize you’ve been played — again?

The Dems won’t enforce our current gun laws — which criminals won’t follow anyway. The only people who will comply with more restrictions are law-abiding citizens. They don’t tend to go around shooting each other, because it’s already against the law — which the law-abiding follow. So, the Republicans have “negotiated” increased restrictions on the law-abiding and the creation of a bunch of tools for leftists to use while harassing gun owners — and gotten nothing in return. They rationalized it as “common sense” gun laws — because they didn’t have the common sense to see what this was really all about. Do you get why we call the Democrats the evil party and the Republicans the stupid party? Both titles are well earned.

Thanks to author John Green for providing a nice segue from BBB to gun confiscation, as well as what he terms GOP “stupidity.” For the umpteenth time, the GOP is not stupid. They’re in league with the Democrats. Hence the term, uni-party. Psaki-Psircling back to the political angle, the real stupidity is Manchin’s timing. Oh so brave to fight against $5 trillion in waste and freedom-destroying insanity but $1.5 trillion is doing the right thing for the people! And for the people means his off-shore bank account.

Rush Limbaugh of blessed memory used to say that discussing things like budgets and deficits just made people’s eyes and ears glaze over. But thanks to President Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants and his handlers having intentionally taken a wrecking ball to our economy and savings, that which was once arcane is now top of mind with even the lowest of low information voters. Even if somehow this bill falters, either because of Sinema or the fact that several Senators are out of action because of the General Tso’s Sickness (there is no absentee voting in the Senate [not that rules matter there, either]), the junta will just deem it passed by declaring a “national emergency.”

We are so friggin’ unmoored from any sense of normalcy, propriety and the barest minimum of ethics that anything is possible. For sure from their side of the line. I’m hoping and praying from ours as well. And that does not include the GOP just to be clear.
