The Morning Report 2/23/24

Good morning, kids. Yet more banana republic bullshit this morning. Despite the fact that journalism today is regarded as a career that is about as respectable as child pornographer, real, actual dictionary-definition journalists are under the gun by the forces of corruption they have devoted their careers to expose. Except this time, there’s a twist. 

It’s not the tentacles of a feral, government-run bureaucracy or corrupt judiciary putting the bite on the Fourth Estate. It’s the Fifth Column within its own midst that’s now doing the dirty work for them. Fascism by any other name would not reek so sickeningly:

CBS apparently seized computers, records and files of the now-former investigative reporter Catherine Herridge, who has recently been fired from the network, according to Jonathan Turley.

Turley, a professor at George Washington Law School, said he talked with people presently and formerly employed by CBS who confidentially told him they do not recall senior staff ever taking such a step before. At the time of her departure, Herridge was investigating special counsel Robert Hur’s report on President Joe Biden, allegations of corruption against the president and Hunter Biden’s laptop, Turley noted.

One former CBS journalist reportedly said staffers have never seen the apparent seizure of records and files from departing staffers.

The apparent seizure has caused a “chilling signal” across staffers at CBS, the journalist added, Turley wrote. A previous CBS manager reportedly stated that he had “never heard of anything like this,” as most departing journalists take their records and files upon leaving. He said the apparent seizure of her possessions is “outrageous” and endangered confidential sources, Turley added.

Turley said these files may contain sources that were handed confidentially to Herridge, making the company’s move “dead wrong.”

Paramount Global laid off Herridge, along with 800 jobs, in mid-February, the New York Post reported. Herridge left Fox News in 2019 after 23 years to work as a senior investigative correspondent for CBS News. She had previously been handed a prestigious award from the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.

Herridge is currently the subject of a First Amendment legal fight and could be held in contempt of court if she refused to disclose her source for investigative pieces she wrote in 2017, according to The Washington Post. U.S. District Court Judge Christopher R. Cooper reportedly ruled Aug. 1 that she had to disclose the sources who informed her about a federal probe regarding Yanping Chen, a Chinese American scientist, who sued the federal government for allegedly leaking private information to the journalist

The judge ruled Chen’s need for evidence overrides Herridge’s “qualified First Amendment privilege,” the outlet reported.

Herridge began her career during the halcyon days of the Roger Ailes era of Fox News, when at long last a major broadcast news network became respectable and wildly successful for merely reporting the news about as straight down the middle as it ever had been by any outlet up to that point – which as we now know was never. Of course, the erstwhile gatekeepers of what was and what was not worthy of reporting, and how it was to be reported defined that as “right-wing bias.” Yet 1996 was when alternate media such as the internet, talk radio no longer shackled and muzzled by the Orwellian “Fairness Doctrine” and led by Rush Limbaugh finally challenged the media-propaganda complex for control of the narrative. Much like the coming of Trump forced all sorts of masks to be dropped and myths about how our government really operated to be exploded, so did the ascendancy of the original incarnation of Fox News expose the rank Leftist bias of supposed icons of impartiality like Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather and Peter Jennings as the hacks that they always were. 

The toothpaste is out of the tube and there’s no way to get it back inside. And as we now can see from the kangaroo court prosecutions of political enemies to the non-prosecution of criminals and leftist terrorists, they don’t even care anymore. 

Look what CBS did to Lara Logan in the wake of the hinky Clinton/Obama/McCain gun-running scheme to Islamic terrorists in Syria that exposed our diplomatic compound in Benghazi to an horrendous terror attack, as well as attempts to report about the true nature of Antifa, among other things. 

Of course, we had another Fox alum James Rosen whom Eric Holder actively spied on at the behest of his boss, Obama, over his investigation into their ineptitude in dealing with NorK dictator Kim’s nuclear testing. But, that’s the government. You now expect them to spy on citizens and journalists for practicing actual journalism without a permit, and then railroad them into prison for crimes against the state. But CBS? The Tiffany Network? Outrageous!

Obviously, the reason Herridge is in the crosshairs is because she’s way too close and accurate in her reportage about the rank corruption and criminality that is the sine qua non of the name “Biden.” In doing that, it also exposes the mirror universe persecution of Donald Trump for all of those aforementioned high crimes and misdemeanors that have been projected onto him. 

Meh, let’s face it; Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants is an iridium albatross the size of Jupiter around the collective neck of the Democrats and they want him gone. The problem is they can neither get rid of him via the 25th Amendment after constantly pimping his being sharper than HAL-9000, nor allowing his removal over corruption after promoting the honest as the day is long bromide. 

Then again, we have this clusterfuckery from the FBI.

The first question isn’t why special counsel David C. Weiss charged longtime informant Alexander Smirnov with making false claims about President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. The question is: Why now?

In 2024, an election year.

On Thursday, Weiss unsealed a 37-page indictment that charged Smirnov with making “a materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statement” in June 2020 to an FBI agent about the Bidens seeking $5 million each from a Ukrainian energy concern, Burisma. A second count involves making a false entry on an FBI form.

The revelation gave oxygen to the legal defense team representing the president’s son.

Smirnov, who should be presumed innocent, was arrested at Harry Reid International Airport on Wednesday and has a hearing Tuesday before Magistrate Daniel Albregts in Las Vegas.

In March 2017, according to the indictment, Smirnov told his FBI handler about a call with a Burisma official and mentioned that Hunter Biden was a Burisma board member.

It wasn’t until June 2020 that Smirnov reported two earlier meetings that ostensibly occurred in 2015 and 2016. Travel records suggested they didn’t happen, Weiss asserted. Hence these charges against a small-change witness.

It’s “really hard for prosecutors to charge perjury,” University of Virginia law professor Saikrishna Prakash told me. . . 

. . . In short, Smirnov worked as a “snitch.” Snitches have a reputation for playing law enforcement to their advantage, while law enforcement has a reputation for looking the other way. I have trouble believing that any FBI agent would consider going after a vice president’s son based on the word of a career informant. Indeed, the FBI didn’t find the accusations credible. Hence the lack of action, until now.

To the average voter, the real scandal is that Burisma recruited Biden to serve on its board for a position that, according to the New York Times, paid him more than $800,000 in 2013 and more than $1.2 million in 2014, while his father was vice president and Ukraine was part of the veep’s portfolio.

At the time, the New York Times reported, Hunter Biden “was a Yale-educated lawyer who had served on the boards of Amtrak and a number of nonprofit organizations and think tanks, but lacked any experience in Ukraine and just months earlier had been discharged from the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine.” And still he earned that kind of money.

Weiss also has charged Hunter Biden with making false statements — for lying about his drug use while he possessed a gun. Weiss clearly takes perjury seriously. It’s downright refreshing.

So, on the one hand the FBI, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DOJ has been working in overdrive for almost the past 10 years to nail Donald Trump to the wall, along with anyone who was even thinking about the Capitol, let alone who might have been within a mile of the building on 1/6/21, and in that regard are considered on the front line in protecting “our precious democracy” (puke). But on the other, they’re paying snitches – and Russian snitches at that! – to engage in criminal activities that might be perceived as entrapping the poor, unfortunate, put-upon struggling artist son of our greatest president (per the most honest, accurate poll ever)?!

Oh, the humanity!

Well, at least we have the GOP in or corner. Pfft.

In Joe Biden’s so-called Inflation Reduction Act, signed into law in 2022, estimates are that $1 trillion in climate pork is stuffed into the bill. For perspective, the current federal budget is roughly $7 trillion.

All this to support policies that are based on a lot of sound and fury but very little, if any, valid science. Restoration News’ Jeff Reynolds summed up nicely the flimsy nature of climate science in his recent two-part report, “How the Left’s global warming ideology wrecked science and how to stop it.” He concluded that the underlying science of Anthropogenic Global Warming has not been proven, its furtherance as an emergency policy imperative is based on massive data, temperature, and other manipulations, and all this deception is being protected through censorship aided by dutiful news media and compliant Big Tech.

For example, did you know that the U.S. EPA’s own data shows that 81 percent of U.S. weather stations report no increase in warm days since 1948?

You likely don’t know this because data like this is suffocated under a massive censorship regime that infects the highest levels of Big Science, Big Tech, and corporate liberal media. Only liberal propaganda gets through the rigid screen most of the time.

Where have Republicans been as Democrats have made deep strides in dismantling America’s robust and reliable energy supply? Mostly giving lip service and doing nothing where it counts—debating the science and scrutinizing the spending.

Big Climate’s’ 25-year blitz of propaganda on the American people has frightened Republicans from fighting back. The consultant class has convinced many GOP politicians to hedge the issue—not taking on the phony science but expressing platitudes about the environment. Thus, the propaganda on climate science, unrebutted, appears more valid as the years go by to casual news consumers.

That’s a shame, because “climate change” is a scam on many levels. Starting with the term itself, which was adopted by the left when “global warming” was too dangerously specific—and sometimes wrong. “Climate change” is the perfect propaganda phrase because it can never be disproved. All weather, cold or warm, wet or dry, is explainable as “climate change.” The phrase itself is nonsensical gaslighting—the climate has always changed and always will.

And, really. Even disregarding the Cheneys, what the fuck is wrong with Wyoming?

Carbon sequestration has become Republicans’ most popular answer to climate change, with GOP governors across western states pumping massive stores of concentrated CO2 into underground chambers. Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon, who chairs the Western Governors Association, currently leads the charge to his state’s detriment as a carbon-powerhouse and leading coal producer.

Last week, lawmakers in Wyoming heard from members of the CO2 Coalition who challenged Governor Gordon’s pledge to decarbonize the energy-intensive state with carbon capture programs. Dr. William Happer, the founder of the CO2 Coalition, compared such efforts to a “religion” before the Senate Agriculture, State and Public Lands and Water Resources Committee. . . 

. . . Last year, Alaska Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy introduced a legislative package to “capitalize on carbon markets” with carbon capture programs, “particularly in Cook Inlet.”

In North and South Dakota, landowners have faced eminent domain lawsuits as a major carbon capture company constructs a more than 2,000-mile pipeline across the upper Midwest. Carbon capture projects have been championed by the states’ Republican governors, Doug Burgum and Kristi Noem.

“Today, we’re on our way toward achieving carbon neutrality as a state by 2030, thanks to our extraordinary capacity to safely store over 252 billion tons of CO2, or 50 years of the nation’s CO2 output,” Burgum said last year. “And in the process, we can help secure the future of our state’s two largest industries, energy and agriculture.”

. . . “Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the statement reads. “Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures.”

Atmospheric carbon has also been shown to proliferate forest growth, known as the “greening” effect. Vegetation happens to grow faster in regions with relatively high concentrations of carbon dioxide. Michael Shellenberger explained in his 2020 book Apocalypse Never, “From 1981 to 2016, four times more carbon was captured by plants due to carbon-boosted growth than from biomass covering a larger surface of Earth.”

Seriously, you expect this utter horseshit from the Left. But GOP politicians from fairly solidly red states, some of which like Wyoming and the Dakotas that have boomed as a result of coal and fracking and the like? And supposedly Kristi Noem is being floated as a potential veep pick for Trump. 

Carbon is life. If you are anti-carbon, you are anti-life. It’s just that simple. But, the GOP is the Grifting Oleaginous Parasite party. Learn it and love it. Then kill it.

Have a good weekend.
