The Morning Report 4/25/24

Good morning, kids. First, a big thanks to Mis Hum for filling in yesterday. Not going to go into detail about my situation except to say that I’m neither better nor worse than before the consult. In the coming weeks, I might be absent for a few days here and there, hopefully no longer than that and not on a continuing basis. As always, your prayers and words of encouragement are appreciated more than you can know. We’ll muddle through somehow.

Now, back to the meshugas of upside down world . . . 

Well, we’ve established that the GOP – Grifting Oleaginous Parasites – are not the stupid party but are in fact stooges/pawns/confederates of the Uniparty playing the role in the ongoing kabuki-bukkake theatre of “opposition.” With the latest maddening sell-out by Mike Johnson, who is turning out to be the Paul Ryan of Kevin McCarthy’s, insofar as sending billions of dollars to Ukraine, and whatever minimal pittance to Israel (of course I support Israel, and dollars sent there as opposed to virtually anywhere else on the planet would actually do some good in terms of its and our own security, but that’s for another time) while doing nothing to stop the border invasion, you want to tear your hair out. 

In point of fact, the $61 billion sent to Ukraine would build the wall several times over. Even better would be stripping the IRS of the 80,000 new agents and using the money to fund 80,000 CBP/INS agents to round up and deport every damned wetback who’s on our soil and returning them from whence they came. But the duplicity aside, perhaps stupidity shouldn’t be discounted out of hand:

The estimable Raheem Khassam probably said it best:

“When the enemy is making a false movement, we must take good care not to interrupt him,” so said Napoleon at one of the critical junctures of the Battle of Waterloo. Today it is commonly written as: “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

”With that in mind: what the fuck is Mike Johnson doing? No, not with his predictable capitulation to the defense industry. That move was obvious as the day is long. What’s more stunning is his bizarre trip to Columbia University on Wednesday, where he squeaked into a microphone, drowned out by cacophonous students chanting – doubtless to their chagrin (and ignorance) – in agreement with Steve Bannon of late: “Mike you suck! Mike you suck!”

Johnson’s completely arbitrary trip to New York is the very definition of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. An issue that was completely at the feet of Joe Biden and the fools in his foreign policy apparatus now appears – at best – as a “uniparty” issue, and at worst, as a scenario where the GOP is running interference for neoconservatism like its 2003. . . 

. . . Why is it yours, my, or Mike Johnson’s job to save them from themselves? Simply speaking: it ain’t.And what happens when the Columbia University President refuses to resign, as Johnson demanded? The faculty will frame it as defiance against Republicans on Capitol Hill and by proxy (though you and I might know it’s not true), Donald Trump. . .

. . . So I ask you again: what the fuck was Mike Johnson doing? When Biden’s White House is under continuous fire from its once-believed “baked-in” voters. To interrupt your enemy when he’s making a false move? The height of narcissism and folly. And dare I suggest, perhaps intentional?”

Thanks, Raheem. I needed that last sentence to disabuse me of the notion that they’re stupid. Stupid though as it seems at first glance, it does indeed seem that this GOP is intentionally trying to sabotage Trump and other Republicans, MAGAns or RINOs, from gaining control this November. 

Then again, as we have all postulated what do elections really mean in a nation that is now so top-to-bottom corrupt both in and outside of government, that they can be stolen now openly with zero repercussions? Where kangaroo courts, as well as private institutions such as banks and media platforms, are running pell-mell to destroy political opposition, be it from the most prominent leaders to lowly citizens?

Worst of all, we have schools that have not only poisoned the minds of at least three generations of children to hate their country, their heritage, their parents and even themselves? Where scores of them are now ready, willing and able to commit acts of violence at the drop of a hat. Or yarmulke?

A Jewish Yale University student was jabbed in [near] the eye with a flag pole by an anti-Israel protester on Saturday night, Sophomore Sahar Tartak told The Jerusalem Post.

Tartak, a history student and editor-in-chief of the Yale Free Press, had attempted to film the pro-Palestinian protest encampment that had been set up on the campus.

The visibly religious Jewish student and her friend were immediately met with a wall of five activists each, who did not allow them to pass.

“One of them takes their Palestinian flag and waves it in my face and then jabs it in the face,” said Tartak.

Tartak reported the assault to campus police, but she is unaware of any action taken besides calling an ambulance for her. The student went to the hospital, but was discharged and will not suffer permanent damage. Mentally, however, Tartak said that she was in an “awful” state.

Why did the campus police not seek to arrest the student who hit her in the face with a flagpole? Will the university now investigate the matter, and determine who that student was, so that he, or she, can be subject to appropriate discipline, including expulsion from Yale?

Sahar Tartak is now fearful of returning to the Yale campus, since these pro-Hamas demonstrators now know who she is and may seek her out for violent retribution for reporting the flagpole attack to the police, especially if the perpetrator is indeed discovered and prosecuted.

Meanwhile, just off Washington Square Park, not five blocks from where I once lived, this happened yesterday at NYU:

Out of control New York University protesters swarmed and berated an NYPD chief and his officers – calling them “f–king fascists” – after they cuffed one of the demonstrators at an anti-Israel rally, wild new video shows.

The viral video, shared on X, shows NYPD Assistant Chief James McCarthy and his officers being chased and surrounded by protestors on Monday night while trying to get inside the NYU Catholic Center after arresting one of them.

“F–k you! F–k you, pigs,” the crowd could be heard shouting as they harassed the officers and demanded they release the woman in custody.

Mccarthy is seen attempting to get inside the NYU Catholic Center, but couldn’t open the door. He eventually finds an unlocked door around the corner. . .

. . . The wild incident occurred when the NYPD was called in to clear out the campus encampment set up at NYU on Monday night, with more than 100 protesters arrested.

The students had created their own “tent city” in solidarity with the sprawling encampment set up at Columbia University, with NYU students demanding their own school divest holdings tied to Israel over the war in Gaza.

During Monday night’s clash with police, some protesters pelted NYPD officers with bottles as they worked to clear the encampment, with one demonstrator hitting a cop in the head with a chair, the NYPD said.

If I want to be positive, most of these bastards will be descending on Chicago this summer to “attend” the Democrat National Convention. Although it’s small consolation that they’ll be mindlessly shrieking at Democrats, I suspect quite a few synagogues in the Windy City might have their walls covered in swastikas, if not firebombed. All in the name of “coexistence.” 

On the downside, how else can the Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants/Kalorama Klown Komintern stab Israel in the heart to try and appease them beforehand?

While perhaps that might not satisfy the rabid tiger’s appetite for Jewish blood, this is on the horizon to mollify the Einsatz-groupies:

Democrats have already made it clear that they will stop at nothing – nothing – to prevent Donald Trump from winning in November. So, we aren’t surprised to read reports that President Joe Biden might declare a “climate emergency” this year in hopes that it gooses his reelection odds. Never mind that such a declaration would put the U.S. right on the path to a Venezuela-style future.

Late last week, Bloomberg reported that “White House officials are weighing whether to declare a national climate emergency several months out from the 2024 election.” 

. . . Let’s leave aside the entirely fatuous notion that there is anything even remotely constituting a climate “emergency.” What would be the basis for such a declaration? The number of hurricanes, fires, floods? None of these has been trending upward. Death rates from natural disasters are a tiny fraction of what they were 60 years ago, and lower than they were 20 years ago. Food production is way up. . . 

. . . As we just learned from the three-year COVID national emergency, the left will eagerly use a climate emergency declaration to strip Americans of basic rights.

Whatever you think of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., he is one of the few who has been outspoken about the dangers the COVID precedent set.

“We’ve now established a precedent in this country – they suspended the First Amendment: religion; freedom of association when they did the lockdowns,” he told Fox News.

“[They restricted] freedom of speech. They banned jury trials against vaccine companies – that’s [a violation of] the Seventh Amendment. They abolished property rights [which violates the] Fifth Amendment [when] they closed 3.3 million businesses with no due process, no just compensation, although there was no pandemic exception in the United States Constitution.”

Way back in 1973, a Senate report noted that emergency declarations give the president the ability to “seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and, in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens.”

. . . Declaring a climate emergency would give Biden the ability to control anything that uses energy – which means literally all human activity – in the name of fighting this emergency.

If Biden were to declare a “climate emergency” and if – God forbid – it helps him win reelection, there will be little hope for the future of this nation.

And if by some miracle the majority of American-Americans say “Hell no!” to this, the little monsters on campuses nationwide terrorizing Jews will be unleashed, unbound, and will come after us for threatening Mother Earth. 

Picture Greta Thunberg in a Palestinian terror towel wielding a Molotov Cocktail. Times tens of thousands. Of course, Jews will be targeted first because capitalism is destroying the planet. 

Remember: given everything going on today, we are all Jews now.
