The Morning Report 9/20/22

Good morning kids. Tuesday and the reaction and meltdown of the left to Ron DeSantis’ essentially “giving the people what they want” — good and hard — continues. One of the commenters yesterday said, and I paraphrase, is that it’s meaningless to just call the left out on their hypocrisy. You have to make them live by their own words to show them for the hypocrites and fools they are. And that is exactly what DeSantis, as well as Greg Abbott, have done in sending illegal aliens to the very heart of where leftists shriek the loudest in favor of open borders and sanctuary cities and states. 

Of course, the emperor of this evil empire will not abide by being mocked for wearing no clothes and so here comes the first salvo aimed back at DeSantis. In Texas, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar is opening an investigation, the end game of which is to nail DeSantis on some sort of human trafficking charge. It is to laugh, but considering the fate of Trump, J-6 political prisoners and others, these people will stop at nothing. Given illegal immigration and all the ills that more and more people know they bring, it looms even larger as the midterms approach. Andrea Widburg over at American Thinker has an interesting take on an anecdotal piece of evidence from an individual who I find generally detestable. Still, it’s something to think about, vis a vis the Democrats losing their core constituents.

In any case, as regarding this Salazar stooge, DeSantis is having none of it:

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar announced the investigation during a press conference, saying that he was “bother[ed]” by the flights “and so we are absolutely opening up an investigation into this.” 

However, Salazar admitted that he could not name any laws that were broken and he did not name any suspects.

A spokesperson for DeSantis responded to Salazar’s remarks by saying in a statement: “Immigrants have been more than willing to leave Bexar County after being abandoned, homeless, and ‘left to fend for themselves.’”

“Florida gave them an opportunity to seek greener pastures in a sanctuary jurisdiction that offered greater resources for them, as we expected,” the spokesperson continued. “Unless the MA national guard has abandoned these individuals, they have been provided accommodations, sustenance, clothing and more options to succeed following their unfair enticement into the United States, unlike the 53 immigrants who died in a truck found abandoned in Bexar County this June.”

The optics on what’s happening in Martha’s Vineyard are horrendous for the Democrat-Left, no matter how you slice it. They’ve been in predicaments before, but for the first time, we actually have a leader who not only won’t back down, he was the one that put their tit in a gigantic wringer in the first place. Equally as telling as the shrieking from the Democrats is the near radio silence from the GOPe. DeSantis is now in the vanguard of a new wave of politicians who hopefully can wrest control of the party and oust the CoC-whore stooges of the establishment. I understand Martha’s Vineyard is lovely this time of year.

Meanwhile, in another part of the forest, the talking vegetable posing as POTUS opened up his xylem, or is it phloem, and despite the cocktail of dementia inhibitors and mood stabilizers let out with one of biggest gaffes yet of his illegitimate tenure. One that could lead to war.

If there were any halfway decent human being who cares about this country in Biden’s cabinet, the 25th Amendment would already be in play.

Biden’s stupid Taiwan comments have been an issue for a while, but he just made them much worse. These are some of the remarks he’s made in the past.

[So-called quote-unquote “president”] Biden on Monday said the U.S. would be willing to defend Taiwan militarily if China were to try and take it by force.

“Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” Biden was asked at a press conference in Tokyo alongside the Japanese prime minister.

“Yes,” Biden responded. “That’s the commitment we made. That’s the commitment we made.

“Look, here’s the situation. We agree with the one-China policy… but the idea that to be taken by force, just taken by force, is just not appropriate,” Biden continued. “It will dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine.”

This came after Biden initially announced, without any treaty, mind you, that Taiwan has equal status with NATO countries. . . 

. . . He’s making commitments that everyone knows he won’t keep while then offering China a loophole for an invasion that is less than “unprecedented.”

Invoking the 25th Amendment is not much of a panacea, but at least Kamala Harris’ word salads are at best completely unintelligible, puerile gibberish, so I guess that’s something.

Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes is just another standard-issue establishment media sycophant for the Left, but on Sunday night’s show, he did dare to ask the putative president what everyone in the world has been wondering: how can a man think he is a capable president when he has been twice filmed shaking hands with thin air, and when has said that the entire nation can be summed up in one unpronounceable nonce word, among innumerable other incidents of tortured syntax, incomprehensible speech, rash statements his horrified aides had to walk back, and more? Biden’s answer, if anything, just increased, rather than allayed, concerns about his cognitive abilities. . . 

. . . True to his sycophantic nature, Pelley grinned obligingly and continued, speaking very slowly and deliberately, as if to someone whose comprehension couldn’t be assumed: “Which leads to my next question. You are more aware of this than anyone. Some people ask whether you are fit for the job. And when you hear that, I wonder what you think.”

Biden answered with a dare: “Watch me.” Well, yes, Joe, that’s what we’ve been doing, and that’s why we’re so appalled and concerned. The supposed president pressed on in his inimitable semi-coherent fashion: “And it ma—, honest to God, that’s all I think. Watch me. If you think I don’t have the energy level or the mental acuity, then — then, you know, that’s one thing. It’s another thing, you just watch and — and, you know, keep my schedule. Do what I’m doing.” So we should take a massive number of vacations to Delaware? . . .

. . . Yes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. That’s the problem, Joe. A quick check-in with the latest installment of “Biden’s Senior Moment of the Week” gives us Old Joe referring to “the Defense Department, that has the ability to calculate an Energy Department to a million billion calculations per second,” and “Imagine being a mom or a dad, looking through your child, you know the needs of inciden [sic] very to live to live.” Uh, yeah, just imagine. . . 

. . . Biden did say: “This is a really difficult time. We’re at an inflection point in the history of this country. We’re gonna make decisions, and we’re making decisions now, that are gonna determine what we’re gonna look like the next ten years from now.” That is true. And one of those pivotal decisions that is coming in 2022 and 2024 is how much Americans are still willing to tolerate the misrule of this dementia patient and his far-Left, globalist, socialist, America-Last henchmen.

All very true, as the estimable Robert Spencer notes. But a line I emphasized scares the shit out of me. On the face of it, Biden could be referring to his alleged legislative agenda. Given the weaponization of more and more of the federal government as an instrument of political repression against the enemies of this junta, that line causes the hair on the back of my neck to stand up.
