Good morning, kids. Wednesday and December. Already?! I suppose it’s the little things that we should revel in when all around is darkness.

First up, we have the long overdue “suspension” of Chris “Fredo” Cuomo from XiNN for abrogating any sense of journalistic integrity in not recusing himself from his on-air duties vis a vis the scandals surrounding his older brother, the Angel of Death, but worse, using his position to spread lies as well as smear the accusers. But, he is not a journalist and he has no integrity. Or much of anything else, really.

Fredo is truly a no-talent nebbish whose sole qualification for the job title of “news anchorman” is his lineage, accursed though it may be. He never should have got within a thousand light years of a position like that, but then again, look at where he works. XiNN is a whorehouse house organ of anti-Americanism and leftist propaganda. The only reason Cuomo is being “suspended” (we’ll see how long that lasts) is that he is a liability.

Meh, how much lower can that place go? What reputation to anyone with eyes to see and a brain to think – and sadly there are far too many who do not fall into that category – could it possibly have? It’s only saving grace is it’s the House of the Rising Sun compared to MSNBC/MSLSD which is a cardboard box under the West Side Highway housing a $5 buck a trick syphilitic crack addict.

The cynic in me says, “the-uh-Reverend-uh-JACK-sunnn” (per Rush Limbaugh PBUH) will lay hands on him, declare him kosher and he’ll be back on the air in three-to-six months. I have a right to be cynical considering the fates of Brian Williams and even Dan Rather. We’ll see. Perhaps my earlier comment about still too many low information types might be premature. XiNN as well as virtually every other traditional broadcast and print outlet have ratings, readership and/or reach on par with a 50-watt college radio station at the tip of the Aleutians, and falling year by year. 

So, in the grand scheme of things, Fredo’s departure, for however long that may be and perhaps even permanently, at least from XiNN, is perhaps a sign of more important things and changes than at first glance. 

The other potentially huge thing is the upcoming SCOTUS review of a case that could see the end, or at least a major step in the begging of the end of Roe v. Wade. Friend of the blog, the estimable Michael Walsh, weighs in:

The case is Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which will decide the constitutionality of a 2018 Mississippi law that bans abortion after the first 15 weeks of pregnancy. Lower courts have thus far blocked the law on the grounds that it violates the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973, the worst Court ruling since Dred Scott in 1857.

This case would not necessarily lead to the abolition of Roe but would be an important first step in rolling the issue back to the states and recognizing that the Constitution does not in fact have anything to say about abortion. . . 

. . . According to one pro-abortion group, the Guttmacher Institute, it’s likely that 26 states would reimpose either severe restrictions or outright bans. This possibility has the Left’s hair on fire.

That the democratic process is not free to do so is due to the fact that the Warren Burger court overstepped its authority in Roe by a vote of 7-2, finding an implied “right of privacy” in the Due Process clause of the 14th Amendment — a Reconstruction-era law regarding citizenship for the newly freed slaves that had nothing to do with “reproductive rights. . . “

. . . What makes Dobbs so threatening is that this could be the first time the Court has banned abortion before fetal viability outside the womb, which means that the Baal worshippers among the secular atheists who have made Roe a hill to die on rightly see it as the slippery slope that, having made abortion a national right, could eventually lead to the end of legalized abortion on the national level.

Even worse from their point of view is that this is the case that Justice Clarence Thomas, now the Court’s senior justice, has been waiting for since he was appointed in 1991. Thomas, the liberals’ bete noire, has long been an outspoken opponent of Roe: “Our abortion precedents are grievously wrong and should be overruled,” he wrote in a dissent in a different case just last year. “The Constitution does not constrain the States’ ability to regulate or even prohibit abortion. . . “

. . . Morally, you don’t have to be either a believing Christian or an observant Jew to understand that proscriptions against the slaughter of innocents go back thousands of years. No previous society has adopted selective abortion as an absolute moral good, as American and European “progressives” have, and only a culture bent on murder-suicide would even consider it.

Meanwhile, how hollow does the “feminist” mantra, “My body, my choice,” now ring as governments everywhere demand that their populations willingly submit to not only having their bodily autonomy violated, but their very cellular essence altered. And not just once, but repeatedly as bureaucrats run amok over “booster shots” and “variants”?

But the Left, which depends on narrowly decided court decisions to get what it can’t achieve through the democratic process, will fight this to the end, no matter how many unborn children must be scissored, stabbed, and suctioned to death. Baby murder is their raison d’etre, their badge of honor. It’s what they do. It’s who they are.

It is incredible that even as the anti-American left has so thoroughly corrupted every institution of this nation (especially the judiciary and most especially the Supreme Court as Mr. Walsh points out), to the point that it has effectively been overthrown as of last November through January, that a central tenet of these G-dless heathens could be “tossed on the ash heap of history” is just too glorious a thing to even conceive. Not merely for the political victory it represents, and it would be a huge one, but more importantly for a true victory in a crucial battle in the eternal war of good versus evil. 

Cynical Sefton pops in again to slap me across the kisser to say “Wake up, schmuck! Even if by some miracle there is a shot at a 5-4 decision, let alone 6-3, ‘BAMN!’ is not just what Emeril Lagasse says!” We’ll see what happens, won’t we? I keep going on that America as founded is dead, and yet we are still in some sort of undead state where our soul is drifting around thinking it was still alive and not being able to turn the handle on the door. The court convenes, elections are held, Congress proceeds and it’s regular order. But it’s not.

And yet, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted. Miracles do happen. “Let’s Go Brandon” is not a mere flash in the pan. It is a cri de coeur for now. If it ever does indeed become a full throated battle cry, oh boy!
