The Morning Report 7/5/23

Good morning, kids. Hope you all had a nice long holiday break. While we’re a bit light on the links as we head back to the work week, several stories are still quite huge in their importance so let’s dive right in. First up is one that’s about to get buried deeper than Hunter Biden’s face in a mound of Oval Office llello or his father’s fingers between a 12-year-old girl’s thighs.

The rifle-wielding suspect who donned a bulletproof vest before allegedly shooting dead five men and injuring two children in Philadelphia has been identified as a Black Lives Matter supporter who shared gun-toting memes on social media.

Kimbrady Carriker, 40, was nabbed shortly after the bloodshed in the city’s Kingsessing neighborhood Monday night, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported, citing sources. Cops haven’t yet publicly disclosed the suspect’s identity.

On his Facebook page, Carriker posted two pictures of him wearing a bra, a women’s top and earrings with his hair braided long in March, three months before the alleged shooting. He also regularly posts about supporting Black Lives Matter, including supporting workers who protested in the Strike For Black Lives in July 2020.

Police said the 40-year-old male suspect was armed with a rifle, pistol, extra magazines, a police scanner and bullet proof vest when he fatally shot four men on the street and then chased and killed a fifth man inside a home. A 2-year-old boy was shot four times in the legs, while a 13-year-old boy also suffered to gunshot wounds to his legs, according to cops. The gunman had fired at police as they chased him for several blocks before he eventually surrendered in an alley, Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said. . .

. . . Carriker’s old roommate, Tina Rosette, 49, told the Inquirer she was shocked to learn of his involvement in the shooting. Rosette described Carriker as “really smart, intelligent, creative” and someone who loved computers, but said he had “an aggressive approach to some things in life.” She recalled him teaching young people how to fight “purportedly” in self-defense — but he failed to give them directions on when to stop.

Just as an aside, I find it kind of bizarrely amusing that the broad who’s the police commissioner of Philly is named “Outlaw.” Considering the current guiding principle in law enforcement comes from the Jagger/Richards lyric of “Every cop is a criminal and all the sinners saints,” well, not to cast aspersions but QED. 

In any case, given that the melanin content of the shooter likely matches that of the victims, and more importantly, his psychotic delusions of being another Jame Gumb as well as a supporter of the black brownshirts of BLM, no way this story ever gets any kind of real coverage in the propaganda press. Did this Don Lemon dream date blow a fuse prematurely before it had a chance to target whites, Christians and conservatives? Well, we may never know the answer considering the authorities in Tennessee are still treating the manifesto of the psycho-tranny terrorist who gunned down adults and kids at a Nashville Christian school as a state secret even bigger than ULTRA.

Yup. It’s all about the narrative, not about the truth. The estimable Robert Spencer, who is on deck for our next podcast, weighs in:

The Biden regime is authoritarian to the core. Like every hard-Left authority in the history of the world, it is intolerant of dissent and determined to stamp out all opposition, not by defeating it at the ballot box, and certainly not by besting it in the court of public opinion, but by forcibly silencing it. But on Tuesday, Judge Terry Doughty, Chief U.S. district judge of the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, put a massive roadblock in the way of Biden’s handlers’ ongoing efforts to ensure that only their own perspective can be heard in the American public square.

In a landmark ruling in Missouri v. Biden, Doughty struck back hard against what he called “the most massive attack against free speech in United States’ history.” Doughty even began his decision by quoting the most famous adage regarding the importance of the freedom of speech: “I may disapprove of what you say, but I would defend to the death your right to say it,” a statement that is often attributed to Voltaire but which Doughty credits to the early twentieth-century English writer Evelyn Beatrice Hall (whom he mistakenly calls Hill, but that doesn’t detract from the power of his ruling). . . 

. . . Specifically, Doughty noted:

Plaintiffs allege that Defendants suppressed conservative-leaning free speech, such as: (1) suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story prior to the 2020 Presidential election; (2) suppressing speech about the lab-leak theory of COVID-19’s origin; (3) suppressing speech about the efficiency of masks and COVID-19 lockdowns; (4) suppressing speech about the efficiency of COVID-19 vaccines; (5) suppressing speech about election integrity in the 2020 presidential election; (6) suppressing speech about the security of voting by mail; (7) suppressing parody content about Defendants; (8) suppressing negative posts about the economy; and (9) suppressing negative posts about [spurious] President Biden.

All that is abundantly true, and there are plenty of other examples of the regime’s hatred of dissent as well. Regime spokesbeings, however, will tell you that all they really want to do is protect poor, ignorant, distracted, gullible Americans from “disinformation.” It became clear when the Biden regime established its ill-fated and quickly disbanded Disinformation Governance Board that it had decided that labeling reports that departed from the officially approved line as “disinformation” was a likely winning strategy, both to circumvent the First Amendment and to hoodwink Americans into thinking that the crushing of dissent was a valuable service. . . 

. . . Will the regime fight back? Almost certainly. Will it craft a deceptive, Orwellian, disingenuous, paternalistic argument for censorship based on its claimed responsibility to protect Americans from “disinformation”? That seems likely as well. But the more it fights in cases of this kind, the more its authoritarian nature becomes clear. Will Americans quietly accept the yoke of censorship? We have a history of resisting tyranny.

Well, we used to have a history of resisting tyranny. In any case we now are facing perhaps the most formidable tyranny in our now concluded history: our own government as well as powerful allies within the pseudo private sector and worst of all, a large chunk of our fellow citizens. 

For sure, as Mr. Spencer notes, it is indeed a huge victory. But what do these court victories really mean when those who were dealt the defeat not only refuse to recognize it as such but actively work to subvert the ruling? Worse, when those charged with enforcing and upholding the ruling refuse to do their duty to enforce it?

Remember that it is an absolute Leftist article of faith that the Supreme Court, or any court for that matter, that issues or upholds a law or regulation that advances their cause is sacrosanct for all time and must be respected so as to preserve “our precious democracy” (*vomits*). Conversely, in the rare event that the opposite occurs, the courts and judges are committing acts of treason. That is their excuse to ignore or subvert these rulings since Leftists and Leftists alone are the sole arbiters of what is truth, justice and the American way. So they have their conscience, such as it is, to guide them, focused solely on the righteousness of their convictions. It’s much better as three words on a belt buckle in the original German: Gott Mit Uns

Just to illustrate the point:

What fresh leftist lunacy is this, coming up at us on the Fourth of July?

According to Cristina Laila at GatewayPundit:

An Obama-appointed federal judge on Monday issued a preliminary injunction against Florida’s election law that imposed limitations on third-party voter registration organizations. In May Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) signed SB 7020, a law that barred non-citizens from handling or collecting voter registration forms. One of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit is an immigrant from El Salvador who works for “Mi Vecino,” a third party voter registration organization.

US District Judge Mark Walker said the election law banning non-citizens from handling voter registration forms is unconstitutional.

What, exactly, is “unconstitutional” about not letting foreign nationals participate in our elections, including the vital task of collecting voter registrations from, presumably, citizens?

So aliens, including illegal aliens, are now equal-protection matters, and if an alien can’t collect registrations, or, for that matter, vote, he’s being discriminated against by all those dirty racists who happen to be U.S. citizens?  Illegals, of course, are great ones for knowing where all the valid U.S. citizens are in this game, aren’t they?  And realistically, are they going to know a whole lot of potentially valid voters, or might they have an inherent interest in registering people just like themselves with their special interests, who are either foreign non-citizens here legally or foreign illegals?

The second part of that initial claim is even more disturbing.  Apparently, the foreigners have been collecting data off the new voter registrations that they are gathering and turning in beforehand — and doing something with those data, whether a voter likes it or not.

The data collected could be used to sell lists to Democrat candidates for their mailed campaign literature, perhaps, or to pressure voters over the phone, and, if these groups are really partisan, to simply give away to those Democrat candidates, which negates the nonpartisan purpose of doing voter registrations.  What do they do with a newly registered voter who doesn’t register Democrat?  Do they throw that registration away?  Nobody’s asking that one.  Bottom line here is, who knew that these groups were getting a little slice for themselves as they claimed to be selflessly civic-minded groups out registering voters for “democracy”?

. . . Besides registering voters, the ruling could also be applied to ballot-harvesting, which is increasingly common in the States in this age of low-confidence elections.  We already know that illegals are blithely harvesting ballots in California as their way of proxy-voting. . . That makes me think this temporary injunction, which the judge says is not his final ruling, will come to naught.  Not from him, of course — it’s obvious enough how he’s going to rule unless he gets some signal from the Democrats to forego a coming bad ruling.

If you go back 50 years, at least William Brennan’s bizarro “penumbras and emanations” about some sort of inherent right to privacy in the Constitution that appears nowhere in that document nor in the collected writings of its authors at least made mention of them when crafting his raison d’être for legalizing baby-killing in all 50 states. Nowadays, judges and justices don’t even do that anymore. See the vomit-on-paper of a dissent to the affirmative action ruling by Kentanji Brown-25 as an example.

As for this Florida ruling, if these fools want to play with fire then let’s give them some gasoline. Governor Ron DeSantis should immediately issue a communiqué that as chief executive of that state, the judge’s ruling is declared null and void. Of course, that’s not going to happen since we play by the rules. Even if the rules are Calvinball.

At some point, that’s just not going to cut the mustard.
