The Morning Report 3/31/23

“If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

Abraham Lincoln, January 27, 1838 

Good morning, kids. It seems like I keep writing the sentence “While what happened yesterday is completely unsurprising, it is nonetheless horrifying and disgusting in the extreme.” They actually went ahead and took the unprecedented (for good reason) action of indicting a former president. Let me say that if a former president was provably guilty beyond the most stringent level of reasonable doubt in any serious crime, he should have to face the consequences. Don’t chuckle when I say this but no one is above the law. 

With that out of the way, and despite being completely Rubicon’d out, they crossed a freaking huge one. Or did they? We keep saying this and what’s the result? Nothing. “Zilch, zero, nada,” as Rush Limbaugh, PBUH, used to say. 

For the first time in American history, a politician – indeed, a front-running presidential candidate – has been indicted in order to destroy his political chances. Americans used to take pride in the fact that such things didn’t happen in the United States of America. But that United States of America is over.

Donald Trump has been indicted on the thinnest of charges. House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer, and House Administration Committee chairman Bryan Steil recently wrote a letter to Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, the destroyer of the republic, pointing out that “even the Washington Post quoted ‘legal experts’ as calling your actions ‘unusual’ because ‘prosecutors have repeatedly examined the long-established details but decided not to pursue charges.’”

. . . the whole thing rests on a novel legal theory. Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA tweeted: “Alvin Bragg lowered 52% of criminal charges in NYC last year to misdemeanors. He just bent over backwards legally to raise the charges against Trump to a felony. WITCH HUNT!!”

That it certainly is, and worse. Former TV and radio host John Cardillo warned: “Don’t downplay the severity of this indictment. There’s still another GJ in NYC, one in GA, and a federal one connected to the Special Counsel investigation. We are watching the political weaponization of our entire criminal justice system. This is a constitutional crisis.”

Much more is coming. Many are saying that the indictment hands Trump the election of 2024, but it’s actually designed to do just the opposite, and the designers are not stupid people. The objective is to prevent Trump from being able to run in 2024, or failing that, to make it impossible for him to win. The average American still has unreflective confidence in our institutions, and will assume from the very fact of Bragg’s indictment, and the others that are certain to come, that Trump must be some kind of criminal. The flimsiness of the cases won’t matter. The public perception will be formed, and that could be enough in himself to make sure that Trump doesn’t return to the Oval Office on Jan. 20, 2025. . . 

. . . For the first time in the history of the United States, a sitting president, such as he is, [Biden] declared that his principal opponent and his opponent’s supporters were criminals who were outside the bounds of acceptable political discourse. Now the ruling Leftists elites have taken the next step in indicting Trump. After that will come various measures to treat his supporters as if they were terrorists.

This is a dark day for the United States. If there are any Democrats with integrity left, they would join the House Republicans who have already gone on record decrying this, and stop it before it’s too late.

That was friend and commentator extraordinaire Robert Spencer. He ends the dire warning of his essay on a hopeful note but I can’t see it coming. There are far too few Republicans with any integrity and for sure no Democrats with any. And do not confuse temporary triangulation with it. Like other essayists and commentators who are stating that this is the death of the republic, I’m glad their eyes are seemingly open to what’s going on but this is not the death of the republic. Nor is it the final nail in the coffin, nor the funeral nor even the burial. This is the pissing on the grave. That is assuming the republic died of natural causes, instead of being dispatched in typical Leftist fashion with a bullet in the head or in a gas chamber.

In the next episode of the podcast, coming a bit later this morning in the sidebar and at CJN, I finally was able to articulate a point through my babbling that I have been trying to get across for quite a while. CBD and other outstanding colleagues and commentators, regardless of who they back at the top of the ticket, feel that the road back really runs through the local level and the states. Citing victories in school boards and such that saw even purplish-blue Virginia go red with Youngkin and Sears, they are of the opinion that these issues, articulated and stridently fought for will yield electoral victory.

My fly in the ointment to that is of course a Junta and an entire bureaucracy that disregards the 9th and 10th amendments (except when it suits their insane agenda like sanctuary cities and states) and at some point just stripping places like Florida or Texas or wherever of their statehood or just shit-canning federalism altogether. At that point, all bets would be off. Or would they? 

CBD also cited the Reagan revolution in 1980 that gave us the shining city on a hill, after four years of Carter’s “malaise” and destruction, that itself was in the wake of Nixon, Vietnam and the counterculture upheaval of the 60s. Yes it was a shining era, as were the first three years of Donald Trump, the media notwithstanding. The even bigger Seth Brundel in the AstroGlide is this: the American psyche of 1980 that ushered in a golden age of Reagan and a national revival is not the same as the American psyche of 2023. I linked a post yesterday or the day before that of course I can’t find now showing that American youth’s feelings of patriotism, about our culture and society are plunging to all-time lows. Is it any wonder, given that the educational system is nothing more than a brainwashing mill of anti-American, anti-Western and anti-God poison so effective to make even Lenin rotting in Hell jealous as where he is.

How can there be an American revival if our children, and generations to come – if they aren’t yanked out of the womb on the end of a D&C scraper or have their genitals cut off and turned into freak – have been preprogrammed to hate it?

Too many of us, me included, are living in the past, inside of our heads, inside of a perception of how things should be; a wistful memory of days gone by as if they still exist, despite what we can see plain as day with our lying eyes, while having apoplectic seizures, like Gunny Hartmann screaming at Private Joker in the latrine as to why no one isn’t grabbing the M-14 out of Private Pyle’s hands and stomping the living shit out of him, only to be told that the gun is locked and loaded as Pyle aims it at them, point blank. There’s your metaphor for the day, folks.

It is a shattering thing to see things as they really are and accept that instead of hoping against hope and living in denial that what we are living through here and now is actually happening.

Take a good look; the transexual fiends, ironically enough (along with every other so-called “victim” group that are nothing more than political and in many cases actual cannon fodder for the Democrat-Left) are wearing the skin suit of the Warsaw Ghetto martyrs and taking aim at the Waffen SS vowing to go down swinging and strike a blow for freedom. The reality of course is just the opposite.

In a few days, the shock and numbness will subside and we’ll continue to battle it out over Trump vs Desantis – as if the Junta will allow them to win an election. Here’s a scenario to ponder: whatever happens with this debasement of justice, Trump runs and actually wins. That is, they allow him to win. Then, the Left freaks out and engineers another dossier showing Trump and his allies rigged elections in the swing states and stole the votes from disenfranchised colored people of color. Vanilli Milley moves in, arrests Trump and his associates for treason, summarily executes them in the Rose Garden, outlaws the GOP, seizes control of the internet and cellphone communications and then declares a “temporary” state of emergency. “Two decades to flatten the curve.”

Sound crazy? God help me but to me it actually sounds quite plausible. PS: there was a mostly peaceful insurrection in the Tennessee state house demanding gun confiscation, but no one seems at all interested in that since it was mostly peaceful.

I need a drink and it’s only about 6:45 in the morning. Have a good weekend.
