The Morning Report 8/23/23

Good morning, kids. One of the links on Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants’ trip to the utterly devastated island of Maui – in which he had to be dragged away from his “vacation” on Lake Tahoe with mega-donor Tom Steyer to try and fake compassion – nails it with the phrase, “He was better off when he left it at ‘No comment.'” 

Better still, not even saying that and just falling asleep at a memorial service for the victims, with a death toll that continues to rise and could very well reach or even top 1,000. 

You know, sometimes I get the sneaking suspicion that Biden is not as demented and zonked out as he appears. At least from time to time. How the hell else do you explain comparing a mass-death conflagration to a garage fire? Or yet again bring it back to dead relatives. Even Norman Bates had the good sense to keep mother in the fruit cellar and not trot her out every time a hot dame with torpedo tits checked into the motel and took a shower. He’s almost as pathologically narcissistic as his puppet master Obama, but I digress.

The residents of Maui were kind of irked, to put it mildly:

“Hearing you talk about your house that had a little fire, you ‘almost lost your house and your Corvette,’ there were children that were incinerated to ash, you f***king old man, you vile human being,” one man said in a viral video.

“You’re so out of touch with the common man, you don’t even know how to speak to them,” he continued. “The only way you think you can establish commonality with them is to lie, ‘The same thing happened to you no matter what the tragedy is.’ He referenced Biden attempting to commiserate with Gold Star Moms who lost their son in action by citing his son Beau’s death from brain cancer: “Your son wasn’t killed in action, by the way,” adding furiously, “Your house didn’t burn down. Your children weren’t burned to death.”

“How dare you get up there and speak this way?” he snapped. “Your job is to go there and assuage them in a way that you talk to them about their loss, that you can’t imagine what it’s like, that you can’t imagine what it’s like never to find the bodies of the poor children who were sent home from schools. They died alone! Alone. In fear. Without their parents or guardian. The most abhorrent thing happened. You’re a disgusting, despicable bastard.”

As the kids say (do they still say it?) BOOM. I hate like hell to bring politics into this situation but let’s face it, everything these days is political. Not how I want it; the Left made it that way ages ago, so we’re forced to play by their rules. Actually we’re not allowed to play by their rules because, Calvinball, but whatever. With that said, I also hate to make assumptions, but it’s probably a fair bet that this gentleman and the vast majority of his family and neighbors are lifelong Democrat voters (their leftist proclivities on the sliding scale from bleeding heart lib all the way to raging Maoist being unknowable). And they voted for this, along with Brian Schatz, Maizie Hirohito and the Mayor of Maui who for decades have put in place the policies and the inept, incompetent ideologues that implemented them which caused this devastation in the first place. 

While, ironically and honestly enough, my heart does indeed go out to you, my brain doesn’t. Sure, Biden is a heartless, callous criminal monster – but you wanted him. And you got him in spades. 

Same thing goes now for the people of Oakland, CA, dealing with a different sort of conflagration, yet just as devastating as fire:

On July 27, the Oakland NAACP published a scathing letter decrying the city’s failure to keep its vulnerable communities safe from persistent violence from high-risk offenders.

“Oakland residents are sick and tired of our intolerable public safety crisis that overwhelmingly impacts minority communities,” the letter begins. “There is nothing compassionate or progressive about allowing criminal behavior to fester and rob Oakland residents of their basic rights to public safety. It is not racist or unkind to want to be safe from crime.”

The NAACP called on Oakland to declare a “state of emergency” due to the untamed spiral of crime. “Murders, shootings, violent armed robberies, home invasions, car break-ins, sideshows, and highway shootouts have become a pervasive fixture of life in Oakland,” the letter warns. . . 

. . . Oakland has seen radical shifts in its police department in recent years. The department is down 100 officers, according to Councilman Noel Gallo, though the NAACP states in its letter that various experts view the department as short as many as 500 officers from optimal levels. (The force’s current size is 734 officers). . . 

. . . Local community leaders, however, are singing a different tune in response to the homicidal violence in Oakland’s streets. “We need to do something now to curtail, I think World War III happening in the city of Oakland,” said Bob Jackson, bishop at the Acts Full Gospel Church and member of the NAACP. “For me, the only alternative I have left is to call out the National Guard. Have the governor send out the National Guard to help protect us,” councilman Noel Gallo said in June.

And as we all know, it’s not just Oakland but scores of cities nationwide. And courtesy of the invasion of migrants from not just south of the now non-existent border but from across the planet, increasing criminality in supposedly safer suburban and rural areas that have never known it.

Again, my heart goes out to the people suffering with this madness, but not my brain. The people of Oakland and every other blue shit-hole city have brought this on themselves election after election, for decades now. In the immortal words of Oliver Cromwell, “I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible that you may be mistaken.”

Meh. It’s like pissing in the wind. Maybe a handful of these people will actually wake up, connect the dots and not reflexively pull the lever for Biden or the ham-sandwich-du-jour that possibly replaces him come 2024. “The journey of a thousand miles,” and all that. Even assuming the elections going forward are not rigged, we don’t have time for that. We need a mass deprogramming of Democrat-voters now.

And speaking of elections, I’m at the stage where I simply don’t give a shit any more. The battling and bickering of DeSantis and Trump – and considering the howitzer-sized gun he is under, his meshugas is maddening to say the least – makes me crazy and the bulk of the rest of the field is a joke. Elder and Ramaswamy notwithstanding. It’s why the candidacy of RFK Jr. intrigues me, not so much as someone I’d ever vote for but who, perhaps accidentally, has backed himself into the absolute right side of a few critical issues. Someone like him could be quite useful in causing the scales to fall from the eyes of pissed off and disaffected Dems like that guy from Maui who went off on Biden. He’s becoming more than a mere turd in the punchbowl but a random element that the Junta can’t ignore.

One of his key issues was of course the vaccine mandates and the lockdowns. And suddenly, weirdly, as things like the war on ivermectin and the efficacy/safety of said shots and masks is coming to the fore mask mandates and new strains of COVID are popping up again. What a co-inky-dink – just in time for election season and as the heat seemingly heads towards the Biden Crime Family.

I don’t know about you, but I will not be wearing any masks nor getting any shots. Ever.

During the entire COVID panic I never did wear a mask, but unfortunately, there was no revolution. Americans lined up like sheep and did as they were told, despite the fact that there continues to be zero evidence that masks do anything to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, but actually contribute to its spread. The graphic to the right, from WHO, illustrates the risks of wearing a mask incorrectly, something everyone does. See this essay from July 2020 as well.

It now appears that the same government thugs who imposed jab and mask mandates before, working in league with the corrupt mainstream press, are once again trying to gin up another COVID panic, and force the same insane policies of lockdowns, school closures, and mask mandates all over again. . . 

. . . We must panic, and the arrival of two positive tests, one in Virginia and another in Michigan, is all the evidence some leftists and a number of very brainless universities need. In Atlanta Morris Brown College announced on August 20, 2023 it is reinstating mask mandates, social distancing, tracking of students, quarantines, and repeated temperature checks.

Let me repeat, for what might be the hundredth time: No study before, during, or after the COVID epidemic has found any evidence any of these policies reduce the spread of these respiratory viruses, while many studies have repeatedly found some of these policies — especially masks — carry risks and can be harmful. . . 

. . . Will Americans bow like sheep again and obey any new mandates? I sincerely hope not, because if they do this time, all hope for this nation’s commitment to freedom and the rule of law will end for good. Now more than ever everyone has to proclaim loudly, “I do not submit!” We have to tell these fools that we don’t believe or trust them anymore, and refuse to follow their dictates.

Let’s hope we don’t go through this madness again but these people don’t do this shit unless they know it’s going to spread everywhere. Just like a wildfire. There is no alternative. We must resist. Not just this but at every level on every issue, regardless of the consequences.

A mother of three became the target of local progressive activists and was eventually fired from her job after speaking out at a California school board meeting, where she voiced her concerns over LGBT curriculum for kids.

Janet Roberson, though, is not deterred from speaking out, and says she’d do it all over again.Roberson was let go from her position as an independent contractor with Compass, a large real estate company based in New York. She was dismissed from the company by phone only 11 days after she spoke out at a Benicia Unified School District board meeting.

“Children are asked to identify their pronouns; and this is now part of the 10-year-old curriculum,” Roberson told the school board on April 20. “We are alarmed that gender identity is being discussed in math classes. This takes time from core learning and does not benefit the students or our community. Teaching kids that there isn’t any standard or truth and you can believe anything you want to believe is not scientifically accurate or medically correct. For example, the notion that a girl can decide to be a boy, or a boy can decide to be a girl, is not true and should not be taught.”

Soon after voicing her concerns, she was met with backlash from local activists. Two local papers published letters complaining about her comments at the board meeting. In the Vallejo Times-Herald, for example, a former City Council candidate named Billy Innes identifies Roberson as a “Compass Real Estate agent” multiple times — an emphasis Roberson believes was made in an attempt to get her fired — and claims the mother delivered a “lengthy, bigoted diatribe denouncing” “gender-inclusionary language.” He also claims Roberson promotes racism, transphobia, “anti-COVID safety,” and “content that favors Eugenics” on her website. Roberson denies all these claims and described them as horrifying.

That’s what it’s all about, people. Imagine if there were a few million just like this brave woman who just said “Enough!” 

Be nice if that guy in Maui and his neighbors had her attitude and connected the dots between this crap and what happened to their community.

I have a dream today . . .
