The Morning Report 3/18/24

Good morning, kids. This latest bit of meshugas is so patently ridiculous, so idiotic and such obvious bullshit that it just reeks of desperation. Or am I just too sane enough and set in my ways to understand or appreciate that the general public has the collective attention span of an amoeba and ditto (more crucially) its critical thinking skills – both due to the combined dumbing down by a media that does nothing but pump out pure leftist propaganda 25/8 and the cumulative effect of at least three generations of what the American educational system has wrought – and that this gigantic lie will swamp the past three years of actual lived experience of pain, misery, angst and suffering?

Anyone reading the headlines published by a number of mainstream outlets might believe that Trump was not just predicting, but calling for, political violence if he were to lose another election.

The New York Times: Trump Says Some Migrants Are ‘Not People’ and Predicts a ‘Blood Bath’ if He Loses

The Guardian: Trump predicts ‘bloodbath’ if he loses election and claims ‘Biden beat Obama’

NBC News: Trump says there will be a ‘bloodbath’ if he loses the electionPolitico: Trump says country faces ‘bloodbath’ if Biden wins in November

Rolling Stone: Trump Says There Will Be a ‘Bloodbath’ and Elections Will End if He Isn’t Reelected

. . . But while those outlets and others were only too happy to share that one cherry-picked line — Trump predicts ‘bloodbath’ if he loses in November — they were equally happy to leave out the fact that at the time, he was specifically talking about the automobile industry and the economic impact of a company owned by Communist China building cars in Mexico to avoid U.S. tariffs.

Here’s the full context of the “bloodbath” comment, which he said was addressed to Chinese President Xi Jinping:

Those big monster car manufacturing plants you are building in Mexico right now and you think you are going to get that — not hire Americans and you’re going to sell the car to us, no.

We’re going to put a 100% tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those guys if I get elected. Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole – that’s gonna be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country. That’ll be the least of it.

Grabien media founder Tom Elliott followed with a video supercut of liberal media pundits using the term “bloodbath” to describe everything from economic issues and Taylor Swift ticket snafus to midterm election results and the recent shake-up in leadership at the Republican National Committee.

As we know all too well by now, to even attempt to point out the chutzpocrisy of the Democrat-Left is pissing into the wind. That is, of course, their standard operating procedure in terms of how they function socially and politically and, via one of Saul Alinsky’s infamous “Rules” what they will beat us over the head with every single chance they get, the accuracy of the charge be damned. 

It’s why I get so exercised about language insofar as what is and is not appropriate and more crucially who gets to be the arbiter of it. Of course, that has been the sole purview of the left since the went full tilt boogie in undermining our society since the sexual revolution, the women’s movement and the complete undermining of the legitimate civil rights movement, going on 60 years. All of it aimed at seizing absolute power. And the control of language is a, if not the prime super weapon in the Democrat-Left’s drive to dominate us. There are quite a few people who get irked at Trump for “shooting his mouth off.” 

I get irked at him for other reasons, mostly in terms of staff and past policy. But if, because of this, we’re going to suddenly demand that he somehow forces himself to literally think before uttering every word at every single rally and interview going forward, then it’s over. Love him or hate him, Trump’s greatest asset is what some perceive as his Achilles heel: his mouth. And it’s only an Achilles heel insofar as we allow the Democrat-Left to make it so. His ability to connect with an audience speaking off the cuff is something the other side cannot do. Especially the demented vegetable presidential poseur whose brain is melting by the hour and can’t put two coherent sentences together even with a teleprompter, idiot cards and a media that is covering for him and covering it all up, with lesser and lesser effectiveness the closer we get to November.

Unfortunately, we do not have a political party to tell the Democrats and their propagandists to go fuck themselves. Instead, we have the GOP: Grifting Oleaginous Parasites:

Anchor Kristen Welker said, “I want to start by getting your reaction to Donald Trump’s comments about a bloodbath. Do you think those comments were appropriate?”

Cassidy said, “The general tone of the speech is why many Americans continue to wonder should President Trump should be president? That kind of rhetoric is on the edge, and maybe it doesn’t cross, maybe it does, depending on your perspective.”

He added, “He always walks up to the edge on the rhetoric, and again, that’s why people are concerned.”

This was after Welker actually, and surprisingly, played the entire soundbite of Trump. It was in complete context. Even if she didn’t, you’d think Cassidy would’ve listened to it beforehand. And yet, he’s agreeing with this lying bint that what he said as voters “concerned.” Why is this schmuck even appearing on Press the Meat in the first place? The only reason to do so would be to blast her and her colleagues for being the lying sacks of shit that they are. Voters indeed are concerned. Mostly about an economy on the verge of collapse, an intentional invasion of foreign peasants, criminals and terrorists, a foreign policy that is lighting the fuse on World War 3 and the persecution of anyone even slightly to the right of Che Guevara. 

Thank you and fuck you, Bill Cassidy.

In any case, remember they tried to pull this crap years ago with the Charlottesville “good people” bromide. Despite that being a somewhat easier situation for the propagandists to obfuscate, considering the rather touchy issue of the Confederate flag, what it represents and the parties involved in that situation, there was absolutely zero ambiguity in this instance. 

Isn’t it amazing how both Trump and Biden see “the end of democracy” if the other wins? If Biden can say it, why not Trump? 

Frankly, I don’t think either man can “end democracy” or prevent a “meaningful” election in 2028. Neither do I believe that democracy is “teetering” or in any great danger.  The U.S. republic has withstood far worse threats to its existence than anyone running for president in 2024. 

“He wants another January 6, but the American people are going to give him another electoral defeat this November because they continue to reject his extremism, his affection for violence, and his thirst for revenge,” the Biden campaign statement reads.

“Affection” for violence? Wow. Just wow.Biden and the left fall into Trump’s briar patch every time. Don’t they ever look at the polls? No one is listening to their “warnings.” No one is paying attention to their predictable attacks. 

They’re writing and speaking for an audience already predisposed to hate Donald Trump and to fear him. They’re not making any converts. They’re only driving people out of the political process altogether or into the arms of Trump.

Exactly as Trump knew they would.

I am not a fan of PJ Media’s Rick Moran, and his assertion that the republic will withstand anything that will be thrown at it flies in the face of the facts since Trump came down the escalator 9 years ago, if not before, and the trajectory we are on. But that said, I do think his conclusion is dead on. Like Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants’ Nuremberg Rally disguised as a State of the Union Speech, all of this dreck will not move the needle in influencing “independent” voters, if such creatures even exist. 

Meanwhile, speaking of “bloodbaths,” I give you this horrid piece of shit impersonating a civilized human being and American:

State Sen. Charlane Oliver, who represents Nashville, said the Republicans’ pro-police legislation is “rooted in racism,” and will force those in her district to “fight like hell.” The bill was sponsored by Republican state Sen. Brent Taylor after Memphis passed an ordinance that banned traffic stops for issues such as expired registrations, a single inoperable headlight or brake light, and loose bumpers, News Channel 3 reported.

The Memphis city council passed the ordinance following the death of Tyre Nichols, a black man, who was fatally injured during a confrontation with five black Memphis police officers on January 7, 2023, after he was pulled over.

“It is a slap in the face and you might as well stomp on the grave of Tyre Nichols,” Oliver said after the state Senate passed Taylor’s bill by a vote of 26-6. “Yes, we are emotionally charged. Why? Because it’s personal for us. Taylor made this personal the minute he introduced this legislation to target one family and one life that was lost.”

“So yeah, we gonna fight,” Oliver added. “Dr. King said that riots are the language of the unheard. You ain’t seen nothing yet. If you keep silencing us like this, what do you think our district is going to do? We have had it up here. Gloves are off. Like, we gonna fight like hell. You don’t expect us to respond when you gaslight us every single day with these bills?”

This animal with a “D” after her name gets to threaten actual, real violence in the form of “riots.” You can bet your ass the propagandists are going to invoke the word “context” out the wazoo. But, as Ace always says, “Our speech is violence, but their violence is speech.” More than that, Democrat Leftists are allowed to say whatever the hell they want, regardless of consequences real or imagined because they get to control the language. 

And in another part of the forest, this Skeletor Doppelgänger opened his maw and spewed this delightful turd:

Democrat strategist James Carville said during an interview over the weekend that if Democrats lose in the upcoming November elections that Israel will be to blame.

“This Gaza stuff, this is not just a problem with some snot-nosed Ivy League people,” he said. “This is a problem all across the country. And I hope the president and Blinken can get this thing calmed down because if it doesn’t get calmed down before the Democratic convention, it’s going to be a very ugly time in Chicago. I promise you that. . . 

. . . And they’re gonna have to tell Bibi Netanyahu, ‘Hey, dude, we are not going to lose our election because you stand to go to jail. You have to think of something else.’”

Carville demonized Netanyahu, claiming that he showed “negligence” and that the U.S. “should be putting pressure on him every way we can to de-escalate this thing, and quickly.”

There it is folks. Carville says if Biden loses, blame the Jews. How many synagogues will burn this summer in Chicago? Only Brandon – Johnson and Joey – know for sure.
