Driving your opponents crazy

There are groups of people in cities like Portland who have completely gone off the rocker.  These people are stone cold crazy.  I think it was the isolation that got to them.  All cooped up in their little apartments, with nothing to do but nurture your various pathologies.  They went nuts.

There is a whole lot of craziness going on in this country right now.  I think it’s infectious.  I think these people feed off each other.  The longer this goes on, the greater the rage that they feel.  It would be comical, except it’s very likely to end in serious bloodshed.

Unless.  Unless Attorney General Barr and the Department of Justice have the resources to put this fire out.  President Trump does not lack the will.  Let’s hope he has the means.

George Soros is a pathological America-hater, and he’s got some skin in this game.  I say charge him.  Even if there are holes in your case, an indictment would bring public attention to this sick, twisted man.

The media are beclowning themselves.  They’ve allowed the madness to infect them.  Their hatred of Trump has driven them over the edge, into a mockery of themselves.  They will never recover their credibility.

There are signs that Covid deaths have peaked, and started their slow decline.  If the downward curve resembles the upward one, this should all be over in November.

Just in time for what will really cause these people to lose it.  Trump in a landslide.

Stand up for your country

Among the great powers of world history, only two have had no natural enemies, and thus no incentive for war of any kind.  No threats from without, and thus no reason to wage preemptive war.  Two accidents of geography, two great empires, two dynasties of peace.

Egypt was the first.  Its borders are unique in the history of civilization.  Its western side is protected by 600 miles of desert.  To the east is the Sinai Peninsula.  The 300 miles from the Nile delta, across the Sinai, east into the Jordan River valley have been a formidable barrier since ancient times.  If you come from the north, down the Nile, you’ll travel 900 miles from the first area with a climate capable of supporting a population.  And you’ll go through impassable cataracts along the way.

Invading Egypt was really, really hard.  And for Egypt to invade a neighbor, it had to caravan across hundreds on miles of wasteland, or ascend hundreds of miles of river.  It didn’t make sense, especially because Egypt had all the wealth it needed.

Its wealth was made possible by the bounty of the Nile Valley, which has produced the most consistent food surpluses in all of world history.  And it has created  the world’s densest population for all of history, anywhere in the world, at any time.

The river doesn’t just bring soil, and water, it also unites the entire valley with a cheap means of mass transportation.  Egypt was destined not only to be wealthy, and peaceful, but to be one united country.  It’s golden age lasted 2.800 years.

The United States is the second great, natural, world historical dynasty.  Like the Egyptians before us, we have no natural enemies, and no other great power threatens us.  We have everything we need, all the wealth we need, within North America.  The greater Midwest is the largest contiguous area of high quality farmland in the world.  We have recently discovered that we are not only energy self-sufficient, but energy dominant.  When the Alaska’s Ambler mining district is developed (soon), we’ll have all the rare earth minerals we need.  Our 17,600 miles of internal waterways exceed those of the rest of the world, combined.

Our neighbors, north and south, are allies and economic dependents.  Our geographic borders are the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Arctic, and the jungle wastes of Central America.  Our navy rules the waves, and our air force rules the skies.  We have nothing to fear, and no need to fight anyone, for anything.

But our internal geography is a stark contrast to Egypt.  The huge disciplined work force needed to tame the Nile, and work the land, guaranteed slave labor.  And the great mass of Egyptians have been virtual slaves throughout history.

The best part of North America, which we inhabit, couldn’t be more different.  It’s naturally suited to individual enterprise, and the family farm.  And that farming tradition of hard work and self-reliance is the foundation of our American culture, and our political freedom.

How long will our dynasty last?  As long as we want.  Or you can put it another way.  We’ll last as long as we can defend ourselves from enemies within.  It’s a country worth fighting for.  Everything it stands for is under attack. Will we defend our heritage?

What are people afraid of?  Why are there so many cowards among us?  Why are so few of us willing to take a stand?

“How can I endure to see the evil that will come to my people?  How can I endure to see the destruction of my countrymen?” Esther 8:6.


What are you?

That’s the question for a lot of black, latino and asian-Americans.  Are they blacks, or latinos, or Asians?  Or are they Americans?

A few years ago there was a big push to rename the Washington Redskins.  It was an election year, and the Republican candidate for Governor of Virginia, Ed Gillespie, ran an ad on Sunday Night Football right before the election.  The Redskins were playing, and most of the black guys in northern Virginia were watching the game.  Gillespie came out strong against messing with the Redskins.

Two days later, on election night, I remember watching a TV analyst puzzling over the numbers coming in for the Virginia Governor’s race.  Gillespie was massively overperforming in the predominantly black districts of northern Virginia.  It almost won him the election.

Today a poll says a third of blacks oppose renaming the Washington Redskins.  These are potential Republicans.  They get it.  They like the name Redskins.  When they were kids they used to wish they were Redskins themselves.  And a lot of American blacks have substantial Indian blood, and they’re proud of it.

Real Americans love and admire the great American Indian.  I wanted to be an Plains Indian when I was a kid. They never worked, they just went hunting and raising hell.  And they were bad asses.  Chief Red Cloud and the Lakota Sioux defeated the United States Army in what is known to history as Red Cloud’s War.

My father claimed he was part Oglala Sioux.  He had a big portrait made of himself, all decked out like an Indian, and hung it over his fireplace.  His wife, my Aunt Helen Mary, was, in fact, a quarter Sioux.

When I told him I was going to be applying for law school, he almost talked me into claiming to be part Indian myself.  But I had my doubts.  This guy loved making up stories.  I found out later it was all a bunch of hooey.

But he did  teach me a lot about all the Native people of Alaska, including the Aleuts, and the Yupik, Inuit and Inupiat Eskimos.  One of the few things he left me was a sled made of baleen, hand crafted by the Inupiats.  He said he lived with them for a while.  I’ve got it hanging on the wall of my office, right above the ammunition parachute from Arnhem.

These people survived for thousands of years, isolated in the most extreme environment on earth.  What kind of a person doesn’t admire that?

The Original Black American Patriots

The American cause hung by a thread in the summer of 1781.  The British were entrenched in New York, and the main Continental Army commanded by George Washington was incapable of dislodging them.  In Virginia a British Army of 7,000 men led by Lord Cornwallis wreaked havoc, opposed only by 900 Continentals led by General Lafayette.   Virginia Governor Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia Assembly had been chased from Richmond and Charlottesville.  Supplies to General Nathaniel Greene’s army in South Carolina were cut off.

Washington’s appeals to the states for reinforcements had gone unanswered, and when he decided to march South, to try to entrap Cornwallis, he had only 2,500 able bodied men.  They were actually outnumbered by the accompanying French force of 3,000 soldiers.

When they reached Virginia in September of 1781 Cornwallis was holed up at Yorktown.  His force had been decimated by malaria, the curse of all Europeans south of the Mason-Dixon line.  The rest of tbe history of the Battle of Yorktown is familiar to most literate Americans.  The British surrender effectively ended the War of Independence.  American sovereignty was born.

The small force of American soldiers who marched south with Washington 239 years ago had very few veterans left from the armies of 1775 to 1780.  These original Continentals had served their terms of enlistment, and had returned to their farms and families.  Washington took anyone who would serve, and hundreds of free blacks joined the cause, eager for gainful employment.  Of the 2500 strong force who arrived with Washington at Yorktown, as many as 20% were free blacks.  They had an inherent, genetic advantage over the Europeans.  Because their ancestors came from sub-Saharan Africa, they were naturally resistant to malaria, and were healthy able bodied men, fully capable of discharging their duties.

After the war these men established families of their own, and their descendants are a significant portion of today’s African-American population.  Some of them are probably part of the Black Lives Matter movement, and want to destroy the monuments to Washington around the country.

Their ancestors, the men who fought under Washington, would be horrified.  Like all Revolutionary War veterans, they treasured their memories of service under the Father of their country.  They were patriotic Americans, and their progeny should honor and revere them.  Even fight for them.

Today, for black Americans to speak up in defense of Washington, and the nation he founded, requires some courage.  But our common culture calls on them to speak out.  For how can a man die better, than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his Gods.

We live in two different worlds

The people at the New York Times are from a different planet than the one I live on.  They called President Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech “dark and divisive.”

Watch it yourself, beginning at minute 39.

It was a speech that needed to be made, was given as it needed to be given, and delivered when and where it should have been.
