Michael Anton wrote the Flight 93 election back in 2016 and he is one of the people who recognized how important it was to beat Hillary Clinton. He has served in the Trump White House and he is a Claremont guy. I think he is one of the smarter guys out there and he’s on our side. I found this podcast very interesting.

Everything takes forever in Washington. Now it’ll be a month until we have Rosenstein’s replacement in place. Rosen is currently Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation. I hope President Trump has some feel good stuff coming up soon because I haven’t seen any winning in a while and I’m getting bored.

Codevilla reviews what he thinks the choices are for President Trump. Either deliver the Wall and Immigration Law enforcement or lose in 2020. He also discusses the bi-party ruling class and what part they play in our awful politics. No surprises here. Just the outline of what to look for going into the coming election cycle.
This post is along the same lines as my ideas about the need for a new fraternal organization.

Conrad Black is a good friend of President Trump. And he is a very upbeat prognosticator of of our troubled times. But this little historical expedition to the French Revolution and de Gaulle’s 1968 power play are amusing and give an interesting comparison to the madness of the lunatic fringe of the Democrat party. Of course that fringe now encompasses the whole party so it’s an unusual situation. Fun to read.

Here’s a follow-up to the Flight 93 essay. Anton is always worth reading.
What We Still Have to Lose
I always considered Finney an enjoyable actor to watch, always fun. Miller’s Crossing and The Dresser are the two roles I liked him in best. He was also good in Scrooge and Annie (both musical comedies which I rarely can enjoy). Rest in Peace.

Z-Man provides a good primer on the Paleocons. Very interesting. And I heard him use one of my favorite of his expressions “Never Trump Clown Car.”
Barr goes to the full senate. He could be approved next week. To be continued.
