I went over Max Morton’s American Greatness post “Until Lambs Become Lions” last week in a post. At the time I said he sounds an awful lot like me! And I went back and read over the other posts he had at American Greatness. And once again I was impressed with the logic he used and the conclusions he came to. I left a message with the editor of American Greatness asking if Max Morton could be sent a message through him.
If Max or one of his friends sees this please tell him to leave a comment on this post or send an e-mail to orionscoldfire(at)charter.net
I am interested in your ideas and would like to ask you a few questions to clarify some things I have been thinking about.
Reading this I thought I was reading something I might write. Colonel Morton seems to be thinking about the same things I am. Maybe he’s a bit more optimistic than I am at this point but I found it to be a good read. He goes through all the obstacles that we face in trying to extricate ourselves from the death grip that the Elites have got on our country.
Colonel Morton has gone to the trouble of thinking of the details of how you build a functional opposition. I think this essay is well worth the trouble of reading. I’m going to re-read it to see where I disagree with it and where his suggestions add something to what I’ve already thought about. Then maybe I’ll write a more detailed review of it.
Liz Shield at American Greatness gives us some details on how the House Republican Leader is already promoting left-leaning Republicans into leadership positions and demoting any actual conservatives to curry favor with Nancy Pelosi and friends. After the impeachment theater is finished I think getting on with the business of primarying all the RINOs should be the first order of business for Donald Trump or whoever wants to take on the mantle of leader of the Free America.
I liked this post by Charlie Eastman. At this point probably the most useful thing we can do is identify the traitors and make sure to get them kicked out of office. All of the congressmen and senators who stabbed us in the back need to be primaried and if they make it to the general election we need to give our votes to either a third party candidate that we want in or to the Democrat strictly for the sake of spite. In fact if it’s a Republican who is very secure in his re-election prospects I say after the primary fails go straight to voting directly for the Democrat. I’d rather see a Democrat in the Utah seat than Mitt Romney for the simple reason that ejecting Romney would give me great joy.
Sheriffs in four New York Counties have stated that they will refuse to harrass New Yorkers in their jurisdictions for hosting more than ten people at the holidays,
“Saratoga County Sheriff Michael Zurlo also vowed not to enforce the regulations, WRGB Albany reported. “I can’t see how devoting our resources to counting cars in citizens’ driveways or investigating how much turkey and dressing they’ve purchased is for the public good,” the law enforcement authority told the local outlet.”
Sanity from elected officials in in New York, is that allowed? Bravo gentlemen. Hopefully your courage will be emulated elsewhere.
So here is a quick summary of how the tv news got where it is. After concluding with Fox News stabbing its conservative in the back on election night the writer concludes that NewsMax and OANN will now be able to make a lot of money catering to the former viewers of Fox News. Very true. If Fox wants to lose their viewership then someone else will benefit. Let’s hope that Tucker and a few others migrate to a new home that does appreciate our patronage. We can use a reliable source of news.
Michael Anton worked for President Trump as the Head of Communications at the National Security Council. In this essay he provides an eye-witness account in defense of the President’s obvious patriotism and love for the soldiers. It’s interesting to see how someone who was present when certain comments were made can shine a light on how they can be maliciously taken out of context.
The Donald Trump I Know
I haven’t had a lot of American Greatness posts lately. Nothing recently has really grabbed me. But I have been talking for a while about who will be our leader in another five years. Paul Bradford throws a name up there and gives his reasons for thinking it. Senator Cotton deserves credit for not mincing words over how you stop a riot. That kind of honesty is more not just necessary. It’s a matter of national life and death. What was it Lincoln said? A House divided against itself cannot stand.
Riots Expose Important Divide Among Potential Trump Successors
Someone pseudo-named L0m3z has a post about SJW double talk or as he references it bug speak. He makes his point but what really makes this worth reading is his quote from the “Zaphorian Cossack’s Letter to Sultan Mehmed IV.” That scurrilous obscene screed to the Ottoman sultan is downright hilarious. And Lom3z is using it as an example of non-bug speak such as he highlights in President Trump’s straightforward way of speaking and writing. You owe it to yourself to read the details of the Cossacks’ history with the sultan. It makes you proud to be a free man to know that such courage and creative obscenity has been passed down to us through history. Take a look at the famous painting celebrating the momentous writing of the letter. It does my heart good.
I’ll conclude with the conclusion of the Letter, “Now we’ll conclude, for we don’t know the date and don’t own a calendar; the moon’s in the sky, the year with the Lord, the day’s the same over here as it is over there; for this kiss our arse!”
Here’s a fun post for Leap Day.
Mr. Bardmesser does a quick quantitative analysis of what the Never Trump vote cost President Trump in votes and states in 2016 and what additional states he’s likely and unlikely to add to his total this year. He’s predicting pick-ups in Maine, Nevada, Minnesota and New Hampshire. For myself, I’m pretty sure about Minnesota and sort of hopeful about New Hampshire. But if you like looking at numbers give it a look see.
