The Morning Report 1/31/17
— Open Blogger

Tillis.jpg

Good morning, kids. Wow, the hits just keep on coming. President Trump is kicking ass and taking names. The justifiable firing of Obama hack interim AG Sally Yates was covered already, so no need to go into it here. The narrative will now doubtless shift to the SCOTUS pick but I want to continue to hammer away on the ongoing (and not unrelated) theme of the GOP as saboteurs. Thom Tillis fancies himself as the second coming of Arlen Specter. Notice this gem from an op-ed he wrote, or had written for him, from the other week:
“Let’s be clear: the American people didn’t give the GOP a stamp of approval or a mandate to ram through an ideologically driven, far-right agenda," Tillis said. "If the election was a mandate for anything, it was for elected officials in both parties to break through the gridlock to finally start producing results.”
George Carlin's pearl of wisdom above is dead on. Tone-deaf, arrogant and condescending is no way to survive being primaried, Mr. Tillis. The showdown is coming soon between the dead-enders in the GOP/Whigs and those who are with the president and the people, whether for real or just for political expediency. Anyway, have a better one and remain blessed.

19 I think the original idea to split CA into multiple smaller states is better. More seats in Congress for our side. Then again, if the 17th amendment didn't exist, even with the Reconquista in the big cities, CA might be held in check when it comes to legislation. Break it up.

25 I disagree with that Scankles article in one major statement:


Hillary was a bad candidate. Her shady financial dealings made her untrustworthy. The more she tried to appeal to everyone, the less she appealed to anyone


She did not try to appeal to everyone.  She pandered to blacks relentl4ss the entire campaign.  She knew they were not going to turn out for her.

30 Tillis I think is questionable but I think his complete statement makes this part somewhat - somewhat - less egregious. Trump's election really isn't a mandate for conservatism. Certainly not in the mold of WSJ editorial page and the National Review. Or Ted Cruz. It is more of vote to get stuff done than a vote of ideology.

35 Even back in the 70s, taking our shotguns into Canada on camping trips was a hassle. My dad would plan on an extra hour of travel time for the border bullshit. We went up to the Georgian Bay area, mainly for fishing, but the menfolk would try and get some squirrels and rabbits for at least a few dinners, especially if the fish weren't biting. It was wild up there back in the day. Gets damn cold overnight though, even in the summer.

46 Willowed, but works better here anyway: The Senate was a mistake in the making, and the founders were aware of it. Tying their election to state legislatures was, I believe, the founders attempt at keeping the Senate from turning into a House of Lords but we screwed that up. Now the self-important windbags are mostly beyond saving.

Posted by: MTF, #NotMyDeadHorse at January 31, 2017 02:09 AM (X4ZNp)

47 I've said it before, the Republican party is an illigitmate political party.

It's a party largely composed of kraven political opportunists and has no desire or plan to advance a political agenda or use its power to role back the work the progressives and statists have done to destroy this country.

It largely acts to cement the gains of the Democrat party and not advance or seek any of its own.

The fact after 6 fucking years of yammering about repealing Obamacare they have no fucking clue on what to do tells you all you need to know.

And now you have the mewling quims that make up the GOP surrender caucus carping about how hard this or that is, is quite frankly nauseating.

They are useless cunts.

55 So when is drunk driving a "minor offense" ? When it is done by an illegal alien according top DeBlasio and their prog defenders.  Thank to good luck I never got one in my irresponsible youth but anybody that has can tell it is not considered a minor offense by the courts. It can turn your life upside down, cost you thousands, even job loss and and jail time. But that is only if you are a legal citizen.  Illegal  aliens once again are given a free pass, disappear into the shadows when released and go on about their  business of mooching off us law abiding suckers.

83 JJ whatever else, Trump is not an ideological conservative. I don't believe that deep down in his heart of hearts he has the same flame for "Constitutional conservbatism" that, say, Ted Cruz has. I think that he has been able to pull off things from the conservative agenda that no conservative would have perhaps because of that. If Tillis thinks that the people did not elect Trump to do what he said he would - well he's off on that. But I think that the conservative establishmant's rejection of Trump does mean something. You can write off Beck and NR and Mark Levin as RINO squishes but just a year ago they were the home of "conservative" thought.

86 >>>How the Clintons May Ensure Trump Is Re-Elected In 2020 Interesting theory. The Clintons, by causing Democrats to buy into a false theory of Hillary's loss will cause them to be unprepared for 2020. I'm not sure I buy it. Because apart from the Clintons, we've already seen that the Democrats are so delusional, they refuse to see how their idiotic policies and actions could possibly repulse voters. Of all the times some commenter here said #ThatsHowYouGotTrump, how many of those were about the Clinton conspiracy mongering? Not that many. Regardless of the Clintons they will be unprepared for 2020. They'll have Keith Ellison going around telling blue collar workers, "You white heathen devils, don't you realize Islam is the religion of peace?"

But resigning wouldn't provide an opportunity to advance her career. Now she can run for Congress in some lefty district on this. She "stood" up to the vile TRUMPMONSTER and she'll do it again! Its a resume enhancer because these are stupid times.

At a minimum, Priebus and Pence know these problems are on the horizon and aren't going to just roll over and say "well we tried". Pressure will be brought to bear on these idiots.

131 Trump is a practical, populist conservative, not an ideological one. I suspect he has never read Locke, Burke, or Hayek (who insisted he was no conservative, either). He's a seat-of-the-pants, "common-sense" conservative. He's a utilitarian . . . he doesn't care about flowery political theory. He cares about Getting The Job Done. That's good enough for me. For now.

132 The last thing I'd ever call Mark Levin is a RINO squish. Granted, he likely doesn't think the sun rises and sets on Trump, and he'd be the first to criticize some of his less-than-tactful way of saying and doing things. But he is not a RINO squish in any sense of the word. IMO, he's likely the most truly conservative, intelligent voice on the radio.

139 As has been said here before, GOP establishment opposition to Trump is a recognition that Trump's Gramscian "march through the institutions" is going to wreck a lot of cultivated bureaucracy, sinecures, and "tradition." The rhetoric of conservatism that is trowelled out by these tenured political mediocrities is useful prolefeed for the constituents back home.

Its actualization, though, is institutionally deconstructive, which is why they oppose Trump; he's is merely putting that rhetoric into action on behalf of those constituents who've grown tired of the lip-service and don't mind him dragging the Furies through the halls of power.

More, please.

152 I think the lesson of Trump is the limitations of "true conservatism" as a governing and political guiding philosophy. A lot of folks (e.g. NR) spent decades believing that conservatism as a philosophy (which is good) would eventually transform into political success and good governance (which is didn't). Trump showed the importance of emotion in driving change. The left has won many elections on emotion, Trump showed you could do it from the (nominal) right as well. I think he is motivated by fixing things, and since most of the current damage has been caused by leftists, that works to our advantage. The problem with NR is they are too wedded to their philosophy to see the value of aligning with a movement that is advancing their agenda. It isn't enough to get what they want, they have to get it for "the right reasons". Which isn't the way business is done anywhere in the world. Trump gets this, they don't.

161 "We have put the whole world on notice that we intend to live up to the Statue of Liberty ideals," (Mayor) Cranley said. He added that being a sanctuary city "is a badge of honor." _____________________ Don't you love how elected officials in the U.S. cite the poem by Emma Lazarus on the Statue of Liberty, rather than the actual constitution or any U.S. laws, when defending rampant illegality? I think I'm going to start ignoring all sorts of federal laws, and when questioned about my lawlessness, I will cite Casey at the Bat, or Hiawatha, or The Raven, or some other poem as my justification. It works for lefties, so why shouldn't it work for me?

I wonder how many of these churches would be so gung-ho about re-settling "refugees" if they weren't being paid by the government? Exactly zero. It's all about the Benjamins. Always is. Why? Because, as a true act of charity, they could decline the money.

168 The problem with NR is they are too wedded to their philosophy to see the value of aligning with a movement that is advancing their agenda. It isn't enough to get what they want, they have to get it for "the right reasons". ========================= I think this is right. NR recognizes Trump is no conservative and they rightfully aren't expecting him to support conservative issues. Where they went wrong is believing he was a typical political cynic. When Trump published his list of conservative names he would consider as SCOTUS nominees, NR did not believe he would follow through. That's where they misjudged him, in thinking he could not be trusted to be honest and forthright (like the usual).

170 JJ I used to listen to Levin on the way home daily, too. He definitely DID say that he would never vote for Trump, and he said that it was the duty of conservatives to stop him from getting the nomination. Levin declared a few months ago that he would not be voting for the Republican nominee, citing Trump's liberal tendencies and his campaign's slimy tactics, but after more thought and with November rapidly approaching, Levin has reversed his position, telling his audience Tuesday, "I'm gonna wind up voting for Donald Trump on election day."

Posted by: MTF, #NotMyDeadHorse at January 31, 2017 07:39 AM (X4ZNp) Amen. Sessions and Pence, IIRC, are big on Article V. As a result of last November, and 2010 and 2014, we now have or are close to having a 38 state threshold. The only problems are a) what exactly are the amendments that need to be crafted immediately and b) dead-ender GOP'-e's at the statehouse level who will block the effort, like the asshole speaker of the Arizona state legislature who refuses to allow a vote for Article V.

179 Thanks my friend. Glad I'm not the only one. *sips* *noms* Posted by: Insomniac at January 31, 2017 07:34 AM (0mRoj) Sometimes my dreams are odd (as I suspect most peoples' are), sometimes sweet and sometimes depressing. Last night I was dreaming a movie called Dear Cupid, which was basically a mash-up of You've Got Mail (which itself was an updated version of 1940s The Shop Around the Corner) and Cyrano de Bergerac. The plot - as much of it as I can remember - was about a lonely fellow who, for some reason, finds a "Dear Cupid" e-mail in his spam folder and decides, on a whim, to answer it. It turns out the answer was a good one and more people being e-mailing "Dear Cupid" questions until the business becomes wildly popular. Being plain and shy, the fellow pushes his best friend (a real hunk) to be the public face of the company. Through some sort of twist, the friend ends up taking over and the shy fellow ends up back in his own lonely apartment, friendless and womanless. Obviously, there would have to be a happy ending, but my subconscious mind, dwelling as it loves to do on sadness, couldn't resolve the plot. Of course, as I said, it's an idea that's already been done to death, so it has no merit other than a sad dream.

And if you listen to Levin today you have to admit he remains critical of Trump - and when he is, he says that it is because of conservative principles. We didn't elect Levin, we elected Trump. That's what I am saying. Just an aside - the day that Levin announced his endorsement, that is when I thought Trump was sure to win. Not because I thought Levin swing that big of a bat, but because to me it meant that he was reading the tea leaves. Beck was trying to start a conservative TV network, and imploded over Trump. Levin was also starting a conservative TV network.

They have fallen into the cultural quicksand of virtue signaling and what feels good. What feels good to most of them is lining their pockets with fat donor money and screwing over the American people. The only "conservative" GOP president was Regan and he was about as popular as Ted Cruz. They have NO intention of repealing Obamacare or doing anything to hurt their donors. If any of us want real change we need to start lighting up phone lines and protesting the GOP because they aren't going to do crap.

245 Prosecutors said the defendant engaged in these acts from July 2014 through December 2015. Aziz also solicited, commanded, induced and endeavored others to kill and attempt to kill U.S. officers and employees by sharing on Twitter a list that contained personal information for 100 service members, according to the superseding indictment. Aziz employed 71 Twitter accounts to share his pro-Islamic State message, prosecutors said. Following his arrest, law enforcement found five loaded M4-style high-capacity magazines, a modified straight edge knife and other supplies for an attack in his closet. The first two counts each carry up to 20 years prison time, $250,000 fines and a term of supervised release of up to life. Why isn't such a person considered an enemy combatant and handed over to the military? Let's say he has somehow managed to get legitimate citizenship. I would think the fact that he is conspiring to attack us, in the service of a foreign power, would mean he should be declared a traitor and put in front of a firing squad.

In fact, the Pentagon is working on such a list right now to give to Trump's people, so that case by case exceptions to the general refugee ban can be made.
 
That, too, is the right thing to do.

Or my second. My first opinion of him was that he was a rodeo clown. I was wrong. Tillis's statement is kind of correct, but i doubt he means it the way that I do. We did not elect Mark Levin, and we didn't elect Ted Cruz, we elected Donald Trump. I don't think that Tillis intended his statement to be what I just wrote. If he thinks that the people elected Donald Trump to not do what Donald Trump said he would do, well, that's retarded, sir. But I am pretty sure the people didn't elect Donald Trump to do what (insert conservative thought leader here) said, either.

264 Dear Mr. Tillis,

Thank you for repeatedly being so clear with your statements.  It's a rarity these days, and I appreciate your willingness to keep voters informed.

You are arguing against straw men when you insist voters want 11 million lawbreakers rounded up and deported in one day.  We want 11 million lawbreakers to stop being lawbreakers in the exact same way speeders and drunk drivers slow down or call a cab when they think a police officer might write them a ticket. 

I also don't believe the families of illegals should be cruelly ripped apart, so please do your part in making sure there is no legislation in place requiring the kids to stay in the U.S. and continuing to drain billions of taxpayer dollars each and every year in our school systems, hospitals, and any and all other resources our teachers and welfare systems already complain of under-funding.  Make sure every opportunity exists for the children of the illegals to stay with their families.  It is the right thing to do.

Let me be clear:  The illegals will never vote for you in any substantial numbers (where do you stand on voter fraud investigations, by the way?).  The children of the illegals will never vote for you in any substantial numbers.  You do, however, have the chance for law-abiding taxpayers like me, my family, my friends, and my neighbors to once again thoughtfully consider whether you've earned our votes, though.

I wish you the best in your decision.

Sincerely,

297 Family Courts make 50billion a year breaking up families and ripping children from mainly their fathers usually when no felonies have been committed. Crossing the border illegally is the first felony parents of children commit when they come here. Then they hide behind their children to stay. They are terrible parents. Send them back. Send the children back. Stop rewarding bad behavior while treating American Citizens with a heavy hand and a malicious heart. You have been warned repeatedly and are all on very thin ice.

This Ted Lieu from from CA--calling Trump a "danger to the republic"--is particularly chilling.
That is beyond the pale of civilized disagreement.

As Vic noted in @125, they *don't* state who the 9 organizations are. Russell Moore of the SBC was an amnesty shill ("illegals are cultural conservatives"), yet if the SBC signed onto this, surely they would mention that. As for the Lutheran group they list (LIRS), unfortunately they list LCMS on the LIRS website, but ELCA is also on there. So not really evangelical.

306 Uhhhhh, illegal Mexicans are not orphaned refugees without homes and family back in Mexico. Remittances are $2.4 billion PER MONTH. They are building 'mansions' and businesses for themselves and families. I know this. My wife is Filipino. Same-o, same-o. _________________________ Also, Mexicans born in the U.S. to Mexican parents have dual citizenship in Mexico. Mexico amended its constitution years ago to provide for this. So all this crap about how the kids of illegal aliens born in the U.S. "have no other country" or "have no where else to go" is bullshit. And the reason that so many illegal Mexicans in the U.S. can afford to send so many billions of U.S. dollars back to Mexico is because so many Mexicans in the U.S. are supplementing their U.S. income with multiple forms of U.S. taxpayer-funded welfare.

313 JJ I used to listen to Levin on the way home daily, too. He definitely DID say that he would never vote for Trump, and he said that it was the duty of conservatives to stop him from getting the nomination.

Levin declared a few months ago that he would not be voting for the Republican nominee, citing Trump's liberal tendencies and his campaign's slimy tactics, but after more thought and with November rapidly approaching, Levin has reversed his position, telling his audience Tuesday, "I'm gonna wind up voting for Donald Trump on election day."

He had to show up at another rally, to inflame the Soros stooges. As his voice failed under yet another round of fauxrage theatre, I could just see the though bubble over his head: "WTF am I doing here?

Yeah, it took years to get to that point.

What we're seeing now is thanks to Obama, Community Organizer President, who had spent his entire presidency fomenting hate among Americans.
He helped stir up the Occupy hate against "the 1%", and black hate against whites and police, and immigrants - particularly Mexican - against citizens, etc. This isn't just a reaction to Trump, it's behavior that has been stoked for years and then directed at Trump. Any Republican president would be on the receiving end of this hate, but Trump has dialed it up to "11" by getting busy and ignoring critics/MSM.

I'd take this as an opportunity to nominate the most conservative option available. "Yes, we're gonna filibuster whoever! Wait...maybe not.

448 418 Quiverfull is a movement among some conservative fundamentalist Christian couples, chiefly in the United States, but with some adherents in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and elsewhere. It sees children as a blessing from God and promotes procreation, abstaining from all forms of birth control, including natural family planning and sterilization. I just didn't know they had a name for it. Posted by: RWC - Team BOHICA at January 31, 2017 09:06 AM So are the projectiles being launched via longbow or crossbow?

459 From The New York Times about Yates motivation: "The Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel had reviewed the order and signed off on its legality. But Ms. Yates and her staff lawyers believed that the department had to consider the intent of the order, which she said appeared designed to single out people based on religion." "Mr. Trump had campaigned on a promise to single out Muslims for immigration restrictions. One of his advisers, Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, said in an interview that Mr. Trump wanted a Muslim ban but needed "the right way to do it legally." Mr. Trump said in a later interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network that Christian refugees would be given priority for entry visas to the United States." So despite all the noise to the contrary, Yates (and The Times) acknowledge that Trump's EO was constitutional and legal except that Trump was badly motivated. Obama (Iraq) and Carter (Iran) issued EOs imposing bans on travel, but they were pure of heart.

My dad recently retired from being an HVAC tech who started as an apprentice-type and worked his way to owning his own business. He did really well despite not being "educated." In the later years of his business he was frustrated because, frankly, it was hard to get good talent. It was all this talk from Obama and the Dems saying you couldn't succeed without a degree, so the culture was shifting to look down on trades. He was getting some pretty sketchy people and then have to field complaints from liberal customers who didn't like them showing up at their houses. Sigh.

Two thoughts - 1) if you don't sign up now, you'll have to wait for the next open enrollment period, which since many companies do OE in January, you'd have to wait a year to get covered. You might ask your Benefits person about acceptance, as well. They have to accept you now, next time perhaps not.

2) FSAs are 'use or lose'. If you don't spend the money by EOY, it's gone.

They were both 17, one had one kid already, the other had two. They were talking about which guy they could use to get them pregnant again so they could get a bigger welfare check each month. People respond to incentives, and for decades now we have had a system in place that gives people who shouldn't be having children a financial incentive to have even more children. It's nuts.

It depends on you, but I guess $160 a month for what is basically catastrophic insurance is not that bad these days.

I guess... and I won't be paying around 20% of that cost from income taxes.  Its just I'm used to me previous job where I had to pay $110/mo. plus they funded my FSA with 2k.

516 Insurance covers uncertainty. Will you be in a car accident this year? You don't know. How's your liver? Kidney? If nothing untoward happens, you lose the bet. Posted by: blaster With a $3k deductable, the odds of something occurring that the policy is actually of any use hedging against drop fairly quickly if you're healthy. We used to have catastrophic policies for that purpose; now it's all a catastrophe.

It doesn't take but one visit to the ER now to hit that $3K and more.

518 Lead is one of the banned material for most production world wide, except USA compnpanies who choose to make products with the right material, sell it here and not meet RoHs or REACH EU protocols. In short, you want lead in your car. Roll back 75% of existing regulations. And by the way design it in inches, not French millimeters.

521 People respond to incentives, and for decades now we have had a system in place that gives people who shouldn't be having children a financial incentive to have even more children. It's nuts.

522 Hillary's stalking horse is enacting a far-right agenda? Things are looking a lot better than I expected. Keep flooding the zone, Mr. President.

523 Here in SF our Archbishop has come out publicly to say that the Church will support all illegals here in the Archdiocese and make sure they're informed of their "rights". What "rights" do these people have when they are already being illegal for just being here? This from a cleric who is viewed as one of the more conservative ones and has been extremely vocal on right to life issues. He even established a parish in the city as the permanent home of the Traditional Latin Mass. But in a community where illegals and the homeless seem to have more rights that those of us who pay taxes to support them, I guess I'd hoped that his backbone was a little stiffer than that. **The Vatican is nothing but the corporate industrial park for the Catholic Church.** There's serious palace intrigue going on right now behind those walls. It's anyone's guess where it will end up.

524 I forget how to embed, but here is a tinyurl link to a Charlotte Observer article that shows Tillis to be a dedicated client to his donors: http://tinyurl.com/zyxedjm Also, open secrets has Hedge Fund Elliott Management listed as the top donor to Tillis. It is run by pro-immigration reform magnate Paul Singer who backed Rubio in the election.

526 The Republicans are going to be in terrible shape if they listen to advice like J.J. gives to stop speaking in friendly Independent-approved "We need to work together" tones. Let me know when Sen. Tillis has actually done something terrible.

527 Isn't it a funny coincidence that Motorola had 10-satellite rockets for Irridium (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iridium_satellite_constellation) and used Russian and Chinese launch vehicles?

Tillis is a douche and I just hope the GOP can grow a spine.

Trump is used to dealing with asshats and probably will MAGA; but keep the pressure on your squishy Reps and Senators.

528 I suspect every single GOPe player to be wholly owned and operated by the DNC through blackmail. Pizzagate involvement comes to mind as a probable source for the blackmail.
