The Morning Report 3/26/24

Good morning, kids. Breaking news this morning is that a cargo ship slammed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge which crosses Baltimore harbor, resulting in a total collapse of the structure. Absolutely horrific:

A mass casualty event has been declared after a bridge in Baltimore, Md., was struck by a container ship Tuesday morning. Horror footage shows the moment the Francis Scott Key Bridge crumbled after a vessel crashed into the central part of the structure. The steel arches then instantly dismantled into the Patapsco River shortly before 1:30 a.m. Several vehicles fell into the water.

It was unclear how many vehicles were on the 1.6 mile-long span but the Baltimore City Fire Department confirmed to that “at least seven people” were in the river. Rescue workers are searching for about 20 people at this time, a Fire Department spokesperson told CNN. 

Baltimore City Fire Department’s communications chief Kevin Cartwright has called the incident a “developing mass casualty event”. “The dive and rescue team has arrived on scene to locate the individuals,” Cartwright said. Cartwright said emergency services are now “trying to rescue and recover” people believed to have fallen into the water. “This is a dire emergency,” he added.

. . . Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. said on X that, “Rescue efforts are underway. Please pray for those impacted.” The department said the surrounding body of water was filled with diesel.

The Singapore-flagged container ship, called Dali, had left Baltimore just after 1 a.m. and was heading to Colombo, Sri Lanka, according to the maritime data platform, MarineTraffic.All lanes were closed in both directions following the horror incident, the Maryland Transportation Authority said. 

. . . The bridge, which is part of I-695, was built in 1977 and crosses into Baltimore’s harbor.

The death toll will likely be high, yet were it not for Beau Biden – who after losing his life at Gettysburg, then at the Battle of the Bulge and then again in the Iraq war – lost it yet again, this time by singlehandedly holding up the bridge with his last ounce of strength, it could have been much higher. Karine Jean Pierre’s words, not mine.

Seriously, this might very well be just a massive mishap or even a series of mishaps that together resulted in a chain reaction which brought the bridge down. That said, given the state of the world today, both from a cultural, competency and global security standpoint, that presents a chain reaction of events of a completely different nature. That it happened at 1:30 in the morning certainly will mitigate the death toll, as traffic I assume would be light at that hour. In my mind I’m kind of leaning towards accident and not intentional. Meh, who the hell knows anymore. I’m sure Ace and the cobs will be updating this story throughout the day as more information becomes known.

Side note: The Key Bridge was built almost 50 years ago, in the pre-DEI era. Look who’s “graduating” from engineering schools these days. A slew of Claudine Gays. Boeing called to say “happy landings.” (Swalwell hears that as “happy endings.”)

Meanwhile, an unprecedented, and until very recently, unthinkable tragedy occurred at Turtle Bay. This one with absolute malice aforethought:

In the classic 1966 film A Man For All Seasons, Thomas More, the Chancellor of England and patron saint of the witty and apposite quip, finds himself besieged by ambitious young men hoping he will appoint them to a lucrative and prestigious position. One of them, Richard Rich, eventually betrays More and receives as his reward the position of attorney general for Wales. 

Soon afterward, More, on trial with Rich as one of his accusers, sees the emblem of his new office and says, “Why Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world… but for Wales?” A nearly identical question can now be asked of Old Joe Biden: “Why Joe, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world… but for Michigan?”

As Stephen Green noted Monday, “it’s official. Under Joe Biden, this country has taken sides against the country trying to defend itself from a genocidal organization that murdered 1,200 civilians — plus other little niceties like kidnapping children and raping women to death.” Old Joe did this by refraining from having the U.S. veto a UN resolution calling for a ceasefire in Israel. A ceasefire in Gaza would allow Hamas to survive. It would amount to a massive Israeli defeat and could lead to the ultimate demise of the Jewish state. . . 

. . . Now Old Joe can rest easy. He has allowed the UN to demand that Israel essentially surrender since that is what the effect of a ceasefire would be. Now Biden can count on Tlaib, Awad, and their friends, and that’s all that matters. For Michigan, he has betrayed a friend of the United States and once again given aid and comfort to the enemies of this nation, as well as to those of Israel. . . 

. . . The end result of the Biden regime’s betrayal of Israel on Monday could turn out to be not only the demise of Israel but of the United States itself. In their madness to keep control of the goose that lays the golden eggs, Biden regime apparatchiks are busy killing the goose itself, and appear neither to have noticed or cared that such an outcome could result from their self-serving recklessness.

Robert Spencer, yet again, nails it. That said, will this move at the UN really be enough to guarantee the voters in Dearbornistan and Mogadishappolis and wherever the hell else they exist come to the polls and pull the lever (at least 10 times etc, including their dead relatives and their 72 virgins as is SOP for Democrats)? That remains to be seen because in the interim, this sends the signal to Bibi Netanyahu and the entire Israeli populace that the United States of America is at best, an ally no longer and, quite probably at worst an active enemy. It also gives them the green light to go all the way into Rafah to wipe out whatever is left of Hamas AND retain control of Gaza’s government in any post-war environment. 

At that point, Bro-Fo, Rancida Taliban and the Titty-Caca Ocasio-Cortez Jew haters that not only control but now comprise virtually the entirety of the Democrat Party will demand the US military literally declare war on the IDF. Sounds crazy, no? I believe it is a distinct possibility.

In a sane world, that would not happen, but as we all know and has been thoroughly demonstrated by the Kalorama Klown Komintern that are pulling Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants’ strings, we are no longer in a sane world. Adding to the fact that they sabotaged and likely stole one national election in 2020, created a phony Reichstag Fire event on 1/6/21 resulting in the imprisonment of scores of innocent people, including Donald J. Trump, kneecapped our burgeoning fossil fuel industry and sent our economy into the shitter, unleashed a massive crime wave via the defund the police movement, intentionally erased our borders and allowed an 8 million-strong with a few million more to follow invasion of our nation – including along with indigent third world peasants thousands of military age males and even terrorists – and on and on and on, I would not put it past Obama to actually order air strikes on Israeli military targets, not just in forward positions in Gaza but within territorial Israel itself.

As sick as this would be to imagine this is just about holding onto political power just for one election cycle, this is about gaining absolute power forever. Look at who we are dealing with. Not just Joe Biden but the entire Democrat Party. Most especially its Jews by birth, i.e. Chuck Schumer. And he’s been in government about as long as Biden, going back to an era when allegedly the Democrat Party and America itself were allied with almost total support for the State of Israel. Biden for sure is going to Hell but Schumer and his ilk are going to roast like nobody’s business for what they’ve done and are doing today. 

I’ve said it before, but let me break it out here to be absolutely clear: The State of Israel is the world’s absolute moral authority. Considering what it faces and has faced for the past 75 years and most especially since the coming of Obama and for sure since last October 7th, there is no doubt in my mind about it. And America, which once was, has now absolutely cemented its newfound position as, in the words of a French Israel-hater, just another “shitty little country.” 

But to also be absolutely clear, I reserve that condemnation for our political leaders, bureaucrats, the media, academia and those who consider themselves our betters. We shall overcome them, as will Israel overcome them and the rest of the amoral, degenerate world. The segment made that way by godless post-World War One postmodernism and that other segment made that way in Mecca 1,500 years ago.

There will be blood. Sadly, much of it ours. But HIS will be done.
