The Morning Report 1/12/24

Good morning, kids. So after numerous attacks on shipping by these Yemen-based Houthi rebels that have seriously threatened international maritime traffic in the Red Sea, Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants finally ordered strikes against their bases in Yemen. He also ordered all patriotic Americans to burn their Hootie and the Blowfish records as a sign of national unity . . . 

Well, somebody ordered these strikes because just like the head of the Defense Department, Lloyd “AWOL-stin”Austin, Joey has not been seen in public for three days. The Brits also took part in the strikes. I’d wager that just like Clinton and Bush, all we hit were a few empty tents, a couple of flea-bitten camels and an aspirin factory.

But the real story is the reaction from the Democrats. Prepare to simultaneously laugh yourself silly while choking on your vomitus at this:

“The President needs to come to Congress before launching a strike against the Houthis in Yemen and involving us in another middle east (sic) conflict,” Rep. Ro Khanna tweeted. “That is Article I of the Constitution. I will stand up for that regardless of whether a Democrat or Republican is in the White House.”

“Section 2C of the War Powers Act is clear: POTUS may only introduce the US into hostilities after Congressional authorization or in a national emergency when the U.S. is under imminent attack,” the California Democrat went on. “Reporting is not a substitute. This is a retaliatory, offensive strike.”

Echoing Khanna, Rep. Val Hoyle (D-Ore.) tweeted, “These airstrikes have NOT been authorized by Congress. The Constitution is clear: Congress has the sole authority to authorize military involvement in overseas conflicts. Every president must first come to Congress and ask for military authorization, regardless of party.”

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), the head of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, called the US- and UK-led bombing campaign “an unacceptable violation of the Constitution.” “Article 1 requires that military action be authorized by Congress,” she further explained. 

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) expressed his fear that Biden’s action in Yemen could risk the US “getting entangled into another decades-long conflict without Congressional authorization.:

“The White House must work with Congress before continuing these airstrikes in Yemen,” he urged. 

Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.), a member of the far-left “Squad” of congressional lawmakers, called the airstrikes “illegal” and implored the 81-year-old president to “stop the bombing and do better by us.”

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who has previously accused Biden of supporting “genocide” against Palestinians, also condemned the Yemen offensive. 

“The American people are tired of endless war,” she tweeted, calling the airstrikes unconstitutional. 

I. Can’t. Even. The chutzpocrisy here is just mind-blowing off the charts radiant. Here we have a figurative and probably quite literal Murderer’s Row of the most rabid, anti-American thugs whose only purpose in life is the shredding of the Constitution and what it represents, and here they are, wearing its moldering, decomposing skin-suit while parading around like some Jame Gumb, pulling its nipples and demanding Biden put the lotion in the basket and respect their authority to declare war. 

I don’t seem to recall coelacanth-doppelgänger Rancida Tilapia getting all worked up about “endless wars” when she was with the rest of the gang in Congress giving a standing ovation to Zelenskyy. They get Article 1 right, but the 14th and 25th amendments vis a vis Donald Trump, not so much. Not to mention the 1st and 2nd along with all the others. But I digress.

Actually, I have to admit that these loathsome creeps do in fact have a point. But make no mistake, they could care fuck-all for the Constitution. The only reason they’re bitching and moaning is because the Iranian-controlled Houthis are aligned with Hamas, and have both called for and unless I’m mistaken even participated in attacks on Israel during or post the initial wave last October 7th.

In a sane world, a legitimate and sane president and Congress would have got together the moment the first attack happened, with the latter giving the former an immediate green light. Meh, in a sane world none of this would even be happening in the first place. The last moment of sanity was when Donald Trump took out Qassem Soleimani just over four years ago and finally had the Iranian mullah-ocracy down for the count. but the events of that accursed year and the following three have led us to the brink of disaster.

In any case, the geniuses in Foggy Bottom and Kalorama have put their degenerate meat-puppet poseur in a bit of a jam. They want Israel replaced as the dominant power in the Middle East by Iran, even if it means Israel’s destruction which would in point of fact be a bonus in their eyes. But the attacks on shipping in one of the world’s most vital trade routes demands a reaction that would piss off the Mullahs. To not do so reinforces the message that America as the arbiter of world affairs and perhaps the guarantor of world security is weak, feckless and ripe to be used as a doormat. The Junta wants America laid low and supplanted by the Davos-Beijing-Tehran Axis. They just want them to, pace Roberta Flack, “kill us softly.” What they’ll get, and in fact what we’re experiencing is a gang anal-rape by the latter day Mongol hordes.

Well-played, Kalorama. And let’s not overlook the fact that the fumbling, stumbling, gibbering Roomba of a criminal pervert presidential poseur needs something, anything, to make him look macho, virile and John Wayne-esque because this is an election year. Except that he comes off more like John Wayne Gacy as each day goes by. This will be a tall order since Joey didn’t even come out and give a live address about the strikes. He, that is his handlers, issued a communiqué. He hasn’t made a public appearance in three days.

They say you should thank God for your enemies. In the case of the hardcore Maoists that have taken over the Democrat Party, they’re too inflexibly ideological to understand or appreciate that Joey-Bama has to put on a magic show with a few missiles and bombs to bamboozle the LIV peasants. Unfortunately for the Kaloramans, the Jaypals, Khannas and Tilapias of their party are too blinkered to see the “nudge-nudge” “wink-wink” coming from the White House. Same as with their “support” allegedly for Israel over Hamas.

And of course, the more they bicker and moan at each other, the more the public understands how insane the Democrats and their leaders are, and they more they are turned off by them. Compounding this is the open borders invasion that anyone with even half of Biden’s mental acuity can see is intentional, plus the eruption of Jew-hatred and the disaster of the economy. 

Speaking of the disaster of the economy, here’s another howler that’ll make you vomit, as well as worthy of earning Janet Yellen a flaming sack of horse dung to the face:

Yellen said, “I think when people are asked about their own situation, they tend to be pretty positive about it and some of the concerns that they express have to do more with their neighbors and the economy as a whole. And if you actually look at their spending patterns, spending has really been quite strong. And so, people are acting as though they feel okay about their own situations, but are worried about the economy. We lived through a period of high inflation, and I think it’s going to take a little while before people feel confident that that’s over and that they’ll be systematically getting ahead. And we’re seeing the beginnings in surveys and I hope and believe that that will continue to improve.”

So, I’m not unhappy because of my situation. I’m unhappy because of my neighbor’s situation. I’m happy and peppy and bursting with love! Yeah, that’s the ticket! Pfft. 

Psaki-psircling back to that open border, and the election year clock ticking, Kurt Schlichter is sounding an alarm that really can’t be ignored:

I’m not going to sugarcoat it – I’m worried that we’re facing a terrorist threat unlike anything we’ve ever seen and that a lot of Americans are going to die. It does not have to happen, but because the people running this country are so corrupt, malicious, and incompetent, it will.

The people running this country have made choices – like throwing open the border – that are going to kill a lot of Americans because our enemies, unlike our alleged leaders, are serious people. They’re serious about subjugating and killing us. But the only things our leadership is serious about are keeping their names off pervert passenger lists, skimming endless Ukrainian cash, and pronouns, pronouns, pronouns, always pronouns. We have a distinctly unserious elite in the most serious of times.

When October 7 happened, we saw the Israelis caught unawares by an asymmetrical attack where a determined and cunning foe leveraged all its limited strengths against the Jewish state’s very few weaknesses, allowing Hamas to execute a short but bloody rape and murder spree. Understand that 10/7 was not a military assault, though it used violent means. It was an information operation, an operation designed not primarily to destroy the combat power of the IDF but to attack the will of the Israeli people and force Israel to change its policies. That did not work. Israel was stronger than Hamas imagined, and it hit back harder and more consistently than the terrorists expected, despite the shameful backstabbing by the Biden administration and the screaming of the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party here at home.

But what would be the effect if our jihadist enemies launched such an attack here in America? Again, while they would target some infrastructure – we are enormously vulnerable because we imagine we are safe – the real target would be the heart of our country. They would seek to use hideous bloodshed and publicized atrocities – including rape and mutilation – to scare us into folding up into the fetal position and pulling back from the world in reaction to the sheer scope of the violence and murder they would inflict. Imagine – because they have – murders and atrocities across the country, uploaded on the web, with waves of strikes occurring inside the decision cycle of our totally inept current administration, politicized federal law enforcement, and woke military.

It can happen. I fear it will. . . 

. . . The scenario for the kind of attack I believe is coming is deceptively simple – infiltrate a large number of minimally-trained killers who have no regard for their own lives into the USA and shed as much blood as possible, preferably on camera. We are utterly unprepared for this, and in fact, we are helping our enemies by facilitating their ability to position forces to attack us inside the United States. The entire southern border is wide open – it would be a joke if it weren’t going to lead to so many deaths. We’re seeing tens of thousands of military-aged males walking into the United States. Some of them are infiltrators. It will not take much to organize a force that launches simultaneous attacks over the width and breadth of this country. Think 10/7 on steroids.

We are not prepared for such a mass attack. Our law enforcement can barely contain a single freak with a gun. Do you remember those idiots in Boston who blew up the marathon with a pressure cooker bomb? There were two of them with a couple of handguns, and they completely locked down a major metropolis for a couple of days. Two untrained idiots with a pair of pistols shut down the whole city of Boston. So what happens if you have 10,000 suicidal jihadists with smuggled-in automatic weapons simply waiting for an order? 

Those of you who have been in the military understand command and control, but what happens if you don’t need it? What happens if you just position these people, arm them, and have them wait until a set time to go to a specific place and start murdering Americans? What if your plan was to launch mass shooters across the country, supplemented by some specialists with bombs and missiles, plus hit teams designed to go after prominent politicians, entertainment, people, and other public figures? You’re not talking about hundreds dead. You’re talking tens of thousands of dead.

I’ll take it a step further than Schlichter. They’ve thrown the borders wide open as a means to replace and supplant native-born Americans, a majority of which still understand what it means to be a real American vis a vis our real history, heritage and culture with a mass of illiterate peasants who neither have the ability nor, worse, the desire to embrace what we do. That makes them willing slaves of a government who’ll feed, house, clothe and take care of them with our money. Until it runs out. 

The problem is, along with these illiterate but benign peasants, the large contingent of thieves, rapists, child traffickers and murderers in their midst notwithstanding, as the good Colonel points out there are untold hundreds or even thousands of Boston Bombers and Hamas monsters in their midst. And Red China says “Hold my Tsing-Tao, gwei-lo!”

Since October 1, 2023, Border Patrol agents apprehended approximately 15,800 Chinese nationals who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry, the report indicates. Official reports from U.S. Customs and Border Protection reveal the apprehension of 9,844 migrants in October and November. This leaves nearly 6,800 who were apprehended since December 1, 2023. . . 

. . . The nearly 6,800 Chinese migrants apprehended since December 1, 2023, more than doubles the annual apprehension rate of any year before the Biden administration in Border Patrol reports dating back to 2007.

Most if not all are male an of military age. And how the hell did they get to the Rio Grande in the first place? 

Along with thanking God for our enemies, we can Him for the Second Amendment. Funny how the Khanna and Jaypal never invoke that. In any case, lookie here.

Democratic attorney generals from 19 states and the District of Columbia urged the White House on Tuesday to crack down on an ammunition manufacturer.

Led by New York Attorney General Letitia James, the attorneys general sent a letter to the White House Office Of Gun Violence Prevention “to express concern about recent reports that billions of rounds of military-grade ammunition manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant have been sold on the commercial market.” The letter claims ammunition from the plant was used in multiple school shootings, as well as the Buffalo supermarket shooting, and asks the Office to conduct an investigation to ensure it “stays out of civilian hands.” 

. . . The ammo targeted by the attorneys general as “military-grade ammunition,” 5.56-millimeter rounds, is commonly used for popular AR-15 rifles, according to the Firearm Industry Trade Association (NSSF). One in twenty Americans own an AR-15, according to The Washington Post.

The Lake City Army Ammunition Plant is a 3,935 acre facility owned by the U.S. government and operated by a private contractor, Winchester Ammunition. A New York Times article in November linked ammunition produced by the facility to mass shootings, prompting Democrats to call for greater oversight on ammunition sales. . . 

. . . States that signed onto the letter include Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.

A California law banning firearms in most public places took effect in January amid ongoing legal challenges after an appeals court paused an order blocking its enforcement. U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney, a George W. Bush appointee, previously blocked the law in December, finding it “sweeping, repugnant to the Second Amendment, and openly defiant of the Supreme Court.”

If I were a conspiracy nutter, I’d say sensing a massive defeat come November, the Junta is opening our borders to actively invite mass acts of domestic terrorism as the reason to either suspend the election and/or declare some sort of state of emergency. If they can use that as the final pretext to either grab our guns or failing that grab our ammunition so that guns are useless . . . Do the math.

They don’t care if hundreds or even thousands of us die at the hands of the terrorists and criminals they invited in. So long as we don’t have the ability to not only defend ourselves from them, but from going after those who invited them in in the first place.

Crazy talk. And yet, crazy times. Have a good weekend.
