Trump Says He’s Preparing to Enter the Social Media Arena

Donald Trump is setting up to unveil a social media platform called Truth Social in early 2022.  The company will be a publicly traded entity and will have a some kind of streaming option akin to what YouTube provides.

Well, this is what I said I wanted so let’s see how this goes.  I wish all the success in the world to this enterprise and if it has value I’ll gladly join up.  And if it causes Facebook and Twitter to suffer, then all the better.  Let’s wait and see.

10JUL2021 – American Greatness – Post of the Day – Return of the King by Josiah Lippincott

This fellow Josiah Lippincott takes Angelo Codevilla to task for his essay, “What is Trump to Us?”  His point is that despite whatever failures Trump had in his term in office without him there would be no populist movement.  He does a pretty good job of defending this idea and reminds us of who would be the conservative political team if Donald Trump hadn’t appeared on the scene, guys like Marco Rubio.

One of the more interesting ideas that he presents is the idea that Trump should run for Liz Cheney’s house seat and then become Speaker of the House if the Republicans recapture the House of Representatives.  That’s a pretty wild idea.  I like it.  Can you imagine Trump mocking Nancy Pelosi from the Speaker’s lectern?  Anyway I like his point of view.  Sure I’d love to see DeSantis step up and start to push our agenda forward but until he does something revolutionary we still have to remember that without Trump none of this would even exist.

7JUL2021 – American Greatness Post of the Day – Codevilla Talks About Trump

Angelo Codevilla has an article that analyzes Trump’s invaluable action as a catalyst but also the failures of his administration to drain the swamp.  It’s a good analysis of the 2016 election and its consequences.  Codevilla claims that Trump’s awakening of the country against the Elites is what triggered them to drop the mask and tighten the oligarchic controls that they already possessed.

He then talks about the failed chances to rein in the Deep State and goes on to discuss what future leaders must do to restore our freedom.  Even if you do not agree with every interpretation of the events or conclusion it is a very thought provoking read.

This article feeds into my own process of trying to figure out how we move forward from the awful place we currently find ourselves in.  If there is to be any hope of pushing back against the forces that are actively working to destroy our society competent leaders will have to step forward with workable plans and a gigantic dose of audacity.

 

Speculations About a Leader

In a recent opinion piece Angelo Codevilla discussed how state enforced nullification of anti-constitutional federal laws and programs could act as the basis for a new federalism that allows conservatives to regain their freedoms without requiring a civil war.

In the article he stresses that it will take very strong leadership from someone to make something like this a reality.  Codevilla gives Charles De Gaulle as an example of a leader attempting to restore a nation.  And he stresses that the leader has to put the cause above his own personal concerns for glory or gain.  He must submerge his personality into the cause.  Codevilla wisely refuses to speculate about whether Donald Trump will be that leader.  But I’m not that wise and I want to at least discuss what the options will look like and how we’ll know when a leader has arrived.

First off, I want to remind everyone of one thing.  Prior to Donald Trump’s appearance on the scene none, and I mean none, of the so-called Republican leaders at the state or federal level did a damn thing about challenging the Left’s narrative about anything.  When it came to immigration, they kowtowed to the supposition that illegal immigrants should be made citizens and that unlimited illegal and legal immigration was a necessity and “the right thing to do.”  Good old JEB! Bush went so far to say that the crime of illegal immigration was “an act of love.”  And so, anyone who objected to it was a heartless monster who hated children and love.  It took Donald Trump to know that this con wasn’t actually believed by the American people.  And the establishment Republicans continued to denounce his “callous indifference” to criminal aliens all the way to his inauguration and beyond.  Eventually some of these NeverTrumpers woke up and realized they had better come up with a new con that included parroting the things that Trump had shown them.  But I ask you to think about this bit of history because many of those same people are once again presenting themselves to us as the future saviors of the conservative half of the United States.

Of course, we won’t be seeing JEB! or John Kasich or Carly Fiorina or Chris Christie anymore.  They are all done.  But expect Nikki Haley and Marco Rubio to be right there explaining how they’re ready to make America Great Again by only making twenty or thirty million illegal immigrants, citizens, at least in their first term anyway.  After that I’m sure a billion will seem like the right number.  My point here is that the GOP Establishment will never disappear.  They will always bounce back with whatever spin they think will allow them to perform their gatekeeping act and prevent anything from interfering with their “opponents” running the country off a cliff.

So, anyone who tells me that what we need is Trumpism without Trump is talking about something that has never been seen before in real life.  If anyone wants to assume the mantle either in opposition to Donald Trump’s run in 2024 or in his absence if he decides not to run, I say show me what you’ve got.  Prove to me you know what we want and then prove to me that you can and will do it.  And that’s a tall order.  Even Donald Trump was stymied in his desire to “drain the swamp.”  The swamp refused to be drained and he couldn’t change that.  If someone has a plan, we’ll need to know what it is and how he proposes to do it.  In fact, I’m not sure that a lot of us even think a President of the United States can do it alone.  It might take a `       coalition of red state governors with or without a Republican president to make any progress against the combined power of the Deep State and the Globalist Corporate Cabal that currently has us by the throat.

So, anyone who wants to be the new Trump has a lot of explaining to do.  I need to know what and how.  I want to see some evidence that he actually believes in the things he claims to stand for and I want to know who he plans to fire in the Justice Department and I want to know who will be his Attorney General.

And not to be too critical of how he handled an impossible job, if Donald Trump will be running again in 2024, I want to know what he will do this time to prevent the train wreck that the Justice Department caused for his administration.  I’ll want to know what policies he will champion and who in the legislature and who in the governorships he has allied himself with to make these things realities instead of lost causes.

It’s a very long time until 2024.  I would say that anyone who waits until then to start causing changes in the direction of this country is not a leader.  I like that Ron DeSantis is enacting legislature to protect Floridians from first amendment violations by Silicon Valley and unconstitutional federal laws.  I’d love to see him form a coalition with Texas and some of the other red states.  What I’d really like is for these measures to be challenged by the feds and then see a state governor and legislation refuse a federal court’s ruling against them.  I’d like to see them win a staring contest with Creepy Uncle Joe and win!  That’s when I’ll know that here is some leadership on the horizon.  Until then it’s just speculation.

A White Pill for 15JUN2021

An old expression is, “Forewarned is forearmed.”  And over the course of the last few months, I have come to think that is a good message for all of us.  Knowing what these rats are trying to do should be a huge advantage in minimizing the damage they can do to us.

But not only that.  Framing the situation correctly has other advantages too.  The utter contempt and hatred I now openly express for our enemies is not only liberating but also truly pleasurable.  Getting to call them vile names is a joy.  And if anyone tries to tell me how both sides are legitimate leaders for this country, I just laugh at him and express as derisively as possible how absurd that statement is.  Of course, I qualify it by saying that most of the Republicans are also phony bastards.  But the primary message is that the Democrats are open enemies of the free people of the former United States.

And looking at things that way clears my head and drives away the feeling of helplessness and confusion.  I assume the worst.  I reckon from the point of view that they’ll get Joe Manchin to do their will and that will allow them to pass their election bill and the slavery reparations and the Supreme Court packing laws.  I assume they’ll do all the crap they want to.  Assuming that means that what I’m waiting for is whether any of the red state governors will push back and say no.

The only way this country, or at least, a part of it survives as a free land, is if someone stands up to the feds and says no.  “We won’t let you steal our elections.  We won’t follow a packed Supreme Court that makes unconstitutional decisions.  We won’t let our children be taught to hate their ancestors.”

That’s what I’m waiting for.  And I can afford to wait a little while.  But not forever.  If nothing happens and we get dragged over the cliff into serfdom then I’ll make a move to a better place.  I’ve begun to look at other places like Hungary, Poland, Singapore, even South America.  It won’t be a happy decision to make.  It’ll be a sad one.  But it can be made with a clear understanding of what is here and what is gone.

And that is why I will forever have a fondness for Donald Trump.  He is responsible for opening my eyes.  He spoke the truth when everyone else was afraid and everyone else lied through their teeth.  JEB and McCain and Paul Ryan and Rubio and W and all the rest of those phonies who sold us down the river every single time there was a chance to fix things.

Donald Trump made all of this possible.  He wasn’t able to drain the swamp.  They harried his administration for over four years.  They tried to disrupt every good thing he did.  They are still going after him personally and they are punishing everyone connected to him.  He may even one day be able to get back to the White House and make more progress.  But even if he never does another thing, he has brought light into the darkness.

So, there’s my white pill for today.  Knowing the score makes you free.  Your mind is free and you can determine your own fate within the possible options that are out there.  You can’t single-handedly make this into Old America again and you can’t completely avoid the damage that the Left spreads.  But you can act from an intelligent position.  And that’s not nothing.  That’s my message.

Someone at the American Thinker is Speculating on the Arizona Audit

Someone named Andrew Coy is wondering exactly what would happen if it turns out Donald Trump won Arizona.  He further speculates what would happen if the other swing states also do audits and it turns out Trump won those too.

He looks at the likely reaction by the Military and the Supreme Court.  Interesting speculation.  I haven’t thought about it enough myself yet.  But I put it out there in case anyone was interested.  I’ll reserve judgement for a few more weeks when the Arizona count is due to conclude.  If it does come out in favor of President Trump that will be a big deal and then things could start getting very interesting.

Are There Any Smart People in the Stupid Party? Build Us an On-Line Town Hall

Dementia Joe and the forces of darkness are working overtime to reduce what’s left of the United States to rotted rubble.  And although they are doing incalculable damage to millions of good people, they are also convincing the rational remnant of the population that isn’t also incurably evil that something must be done about the present situation.

This presents a remarkable opportunity for someone with something on the ball.  The social and financial leverage available to someone on the right who actually has a workable plan is not unlimited but it is formidable.  Back during Obama’s tenure Americans on the right were looking for a movement to support their dissatisfaction with the political situation.  As it worked out hucksters appeared to grift money from those well-meaning people and dissipated the political energy that existed.

But ten years later we are in an even more dire situation.  The American people are even more incensed by the horrifying reality of the Biden abomination and the Deep State actors that are inflicting a soviet-like surveillance state on them.  Why isn’t there some legitimate right-wing leader to focus that anger and channel it into something constructive.  Are our leaders really all that useless?  Are they just simply as stupid as their reputation says they are?  That is the million-dollar question.

Yesterday a little bit of news came out.  Donald Trump is planning to build his own social network platform.  But what will it be?  Will it be Right Twitter, Right Facebook?  Will it be more than that?  Does Donald Trump even know what it will be?  These are all good questions.  But a better question is what do we need?

What I think we need is an on-line town hall with the alleged Republican leaders plugged in on a regular basis.  We need to be able discuss the issues and we need actual leaders to provide us with feedback and hopefully solutions to the situations we are being subjected to.  It has to be more than just us peons complaining about the horror we are enduring.  We need powerful people to provide us with solutions.  It’s understood that some problems can’t be solved overnight or maybe ever but honest talk about what can be done and what will have to be endured will go a long way toward giving these leaders credibility and backing from their people.

And add into this town hall a place for the pundits and the reporters.  And while we’re at it add in the entertainers and the artists.  That means comics on our side will actually have a place to tell their jokes and mock the Left without being de-platformed.

Well, that should be enough.  That sounds like a combination of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and also the News Media the way it was supposed to be, along with an interactive version of FDR’s Fireside Chats thrown in for good measure.  That’s about what I think we need.  So, if Mr. Trump is going to provide that then he’s hitting the market at just the right time.  I’d be willing to take the $100+ I give to Bezos for Amazon Prime and switch it over to something like what I’m discussing here.  I imagine it would be worth that much to me.  Maybe they could have a discount plan for the poor but eight bucks a month wouldn’t be asking too much to get something of our own that the SPLC won’t be able to shut down.  Oh, and I forgot.  It’s going to need its own online payment service provider and probably a bank to do business with it.  But billionaires can take care of things like that too.  So, get going.

You get the idea; we need a nerve center for the normal people.  The Left has Google and Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and heaven knows what else.  I don’t think it’s too much that we have a place too.  So, President Trump and whichever of your friends with money and savvy are out there consider this your golden opportunity to capture an untapped market of about fifty to a hundred million people who are currently unserved and starving for a home on line.

What Will President Trump Say Next Sunday?

On Sunday February 28th 2021 at 3:40 pm on the last day of CPAC, Donald Trump will make his first major public speech since the January 6th rally in Washington D.C. that the Left used as an excuse for his post-term impeachment and the militarization of Capitol Hill into something resembling the Berlin Wall.

I’ve been waiting impatiently for this speech for weeks.  I guess if I had been more thoughtful, I would have acknowledged that it was necessary to let the impeachment process and the fallout from all of the dozens of Biden regime executive orders settle first before there would be space in the public eye for a major statement by Donald Trump.

So, in less than a week the only man in generations who was both willing and able to do something significant to improve the lives of normal Americans will have the chance to tell us if he has a plan for the future.  I won’t lie and say I’m not anxious that he may decide to pass the torch to the next generation.  After all he is already 74 years old and by 2024, he’ll be 78.  That’s a lot to expect from a man.

But what I’m hoping he will say is that he wants to build a political and commercial foundation for us.  He has some means and he knows other wealthy and powerful men who if they have the ambition and foresight can put together a corporation that supports many different populist and conservative needs.

My ideas for this are very overblown.  I envision a corporation that provides unassailable access for conservatives to services that currently are at the whim of progressive attack.  People who have done nothing more dangerous than question the progressive dictates on sexual and racial pieties have had their internet businesses shut down or shadow banned.  They have been hounded out of their jobs, denied service by banks and payment processors and even arrested by local and federal law enforcement based on selective enforcement of laws that often are completely unconstitutional.

So, you can see, I’ll probably be at least somewhat let down no matter what is said.  I feel that at this point it is going to take men of extraordinary vision to take back this country without an actual civil war.  An enormous amount of coordination and the willingness to build corporate structures and commercial institutions at great financial risk doesn’t seem probable.  But either those things must happen or one of two things will.  Either a demagogue will step in and things will go in a different and much darker direction, or the normal people of this country will finally give up and the progressives will turn this into a totalitarian woke state right out of 1984.  And I really don’t want either of those options.

But even if President Trump only gives us a tiny part of a plan for our future it will be the first tiny patch of good news we’ve had in months.  I’m looking forward to it with great expectation.  I would even like it if he reflected on the RINO’s that stabbed him in the back and also pointed to the current flock of conservative leaders and anointed a few of them as the men who will have to carry the ball after his time has passed.

And finally, this speech is the chance for the acknowledged leader of conservative America to address his people specifically.  At CPAC the audience isn’t all of America.  It’s specifically conservative America and Donald Trump is currently the undisputed leader of that tribe.  We voted for him in prodigious numbers.  Recent surveys show we would abandon the Republican Party if he started a Patriot Party of his own and we’re looking to him to show us a path forward into a future that doesn’t leave us at the mercy of the progressive left.  I hope he has something good for us to hear.

Now Let’s Switch It Up – Who Will Lead Us Out of the Wilderness?

Yes, Mitt Romney is the lowest of the low.  But who do we we think could be part of the solution?  We need a leader, a hero.  Someone powerful and smart.  But who is out there?  I’ll put a few names out there, pick any that seems like they could help.  If you have a better name pick “other” and list him in the comments.

This is a lot more difficult than the other survey.  This isn’t a simple choice between obvious choices.  None of us know the answer to this.  Some of these people want to help us and even have done things to help us like President Trump.  But who has the wherewithal to get us out of the trap that the Left has gotten us in.  Strength, brains but also enormous courage.  That’s what’s needed.  Because the enemies ranged against him will be almost irresistible.

And honestly, what it’s going to require is someone who can organize the other leaders around him and forge that coalition into a weapon to defeat the Deep State.  And that is going to take more than anyone has shown so far.

What’s President Trump’s Next Move?

I assume Dementia Joe and Willie Brown’s Ho will start off their fake regime by passing a whole bunch of laws to make us miserable and trample on our constitutional rights.  Whatever atrocities they commit I’ll do my best to neutralize their effect by appropriate avoidance techniques.  But I’ll be damned if I’ll actually listen to anything those morons have to say.  I don’t have the strongest stomach and I think it would be bad for my digestion to hear that kind of bilge on an empty or full stomach.  Unless, that is, if someone tells me that there are some really hilarious gaffs included.  And even then, it will be annoying to see his ugly stupid head.

But what I’m really interested in is President Trump’s next moves.  I want to hear from the man.  If he is going to set up an operation I want to know if it’s something I can get involved in.  A social media company especially one that allows users to network with people from our side would be very exciting.  And a small fee to set up a site on it wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me as long as it works well.

A news media company would be okay but honestly, I get my information from websites now and television isn’t so much of a thing I’m interested in anymore.  But burying FoxNews is an admirable goal so that would be okay.

Maybe he’s going to start a political organization, either a third party or a PAC that will represent the interests of the Deplorables.  That would be amazing.  I could see an organization like that primarying every single one of the quisling Republicans that turned tail and showed the yellow stripes on their backs during the “riot in the Capitol.”  Seeing Mitt Romney ejected during a primary election would be one of the happiest moments of my political life.

Or maybe he’s going to two or three of these things at the same time.  Or maybe he’s going to get back into his own business.  After all, four years is a long time to ignore a large company.  Maybe it’s time he got back to making money.

Or finally, maybe he’s tired and will want to retire and write his memoirs.  I’m sure he could sell a hundred million copies of a book that details the things that went on in the White House during his administration.  It would be fascinating and very educational to many, many of us.

But whatever he decides to do I’d like to know.  Having him cut off from his people is weird.  I don’t think there’s been a week in the last four years that he hasn’t sent us messages about what he was thinking and doing.  Having to hear about Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or especially Dementia Joe is just too boring and unpleasant to contemplate.  They are pathetic losers and subhuman creatures that don’t merit anyone reading or hearing their words or thoughts.

So, come on President Trump, set up a website and provide us with some content.  It doesn’t have to be restricted to tweet length messages.  Keep us informed about what the real leader of the real Americans is up to.  Don’t leave us to the dreary prospect of subsisting on the nonsense that comes out of “official” Washington.  That’s a fate worse than death.
