I hope you guys like my fiction more than my non-fiction…because I’m definitely liking fiction more! Nearly done with Battles, the sequel to Secrets (last night I did a big bit on the final battle between the good guys and the bad guys; its quite exciting!) and I’m already way into Shadow Army, which takes our heroes six years after Battles and continues the story. Shadow Army came up because the Mrs invented the evil creatures in it…she just suddenly thought about them and before I knew it, I had 25,000 words down.

The Democrats and the MSM (but I repeat myself) are sticking to the 2016 script relentlessly. They are even now on “GOP insiders say Trump is looking for a graceful exit and a symbolic win”. Hey, who knows? Maybe they’re on to something this time…but I suspect they are just churning out what they are told to churn out by the DNC.

I’m thinking we need to ban political polling: just get rid of it. It doesn’t inform any more, if it ever did. It is now a mere tool to drive a Narrative and try to convince people that reality is different from what they can see right in front of them. If we did that, then the Experts would actually have to go out and see what’s happening before they could tell us what they think is going on. Now, they just refer to the polls and call it a day – and call you an idiot if you don’t respect the Holy Polls.

Trump’s White House speech as called a “peaceful protest in favor of law and order”…and as we know peaceful protests can’t spread the ‘Rona, it was all good. And it was also pretty amazing: mostly because of the number of “Blexit” people involved (Black Exit: black people leaving the Democrats. We’ll see how that comes out: there are some indicators that Trump will score pretty high in minority communities. But, unlike the Experts, I think I’ll wait for the votes to be cast and counted before deciding what will happen.

Joe says we voters “don’t deserve” to know his views on court packing. Which, of course, means we know: he’ll pack it in an instant if given the chance. But, it doesn’t poll well: it really is just a tiny minority of really butt hurt liberals upset that Trump got to appoint 3, so they want to appoint 4. Joking aside, it is a danger to the Republic because if they did pack it to a 7/6 liberal majority, that Court would rule any way the Democrats wanted at the moment. Better to avoid that by keeping Trump in the White House and Cocaine Mitch running the Senate. This issue is causing some heartburn for Democrats – in both the AZ and CO Senate races, the GOP incumbents scored pretty heavily in debate by getting both their Democrat opponents to refuse to answer the question. I just have to think that voters aren’t going to like this “you don’t deserve to know” attitude. Could make some tight races flip our way.

Seems like the kooks set up by the FBI in the “kidnap Whitmer” scheme have one thing in common: they don’t like Trump. No surprise: real 2A, Conservative militia types are law-abiding patriots. We will fight if our lives and liberty depend on it, but we’re not lunatics…you know, like liberals are. My view of this is that the FBI got wind of these losers and then egged them on until they broke a law…all so they could blame Trump. As far as that goes, it worked: to the end of time, liberals will assert that MAGA-hatted Trumpsters plotted to kidnap Whitmer.

I’ll have Secrets out September 1st. And I’ve actually written all the way to the end of Battles. The third book does still need a lot of work: but I wanted to see how it ended and I think I’ve written a splendid ending! I’m going to try to have Battles out December 1st but that might slip to right after the New Year.

You may have heard of the story of the accused rapist who was let out because of Corona fears and then proceeded to murder his victim. I don’t know precisely why, but this story has placed a fury of anger in my heart. I’m sure this is not the only such story out there: and it is infuriating because the criminal was released not for any valid reason, but simply because the Democrat Party created an op which went: “if the virus is the worst thing ever, it will hurt Trump, so we’ll have the MSM report the virus as the worst thing ever”. What followed after that – criminals being sprung because we can’t leave them in prison with the worst virus ever – was a predictable as thunder after lightning. But the bottom line is that a woman is dead – murdered by the man who brutally raped her – because of the Democrat Op…and all those who are hand-wringers and cowards over this virus also have blood on their hands. For the millionth time: actions have consequences. This is the real world. What you do will cause other things to happen.

Trump signed his Executive Orders and, sure, we Conservatives are not pleased that he was forced to this action. In our perfect, entirely Constitutional world, this should not have happened. But, we left off that Constitutional world quite a while ago. It wasn’t even Obama with his pen and phone that got the ball rolling here. Honestly, it was Teddy Roosevelt with his “if the law doesn’t prohibit it, the President can do it” assertion which started the tearing down of the Constitutional order.

On the other hand, this puts Democrats in the pickle of either going along with it, or suing in court to allow people to be evicted and get lower unemployment benefits. And that, to me, is key. Since we really don’t live under the Constitution any longer, might as well do what we can to ensure our continued power. Because if the Democrats do win in November and take back the Senate, you can rely on it they’ll just pack the Supreme Court as needed and simply annul anything which prevents them from winning. Our primary action right now is defensive: keeping them away. But, also, we will have a small chance of restoring the Republic…but to do that, we’ll need power. I figure it’s 50/50 we’ll eventually install a Lenin or Franco (depending on which side wins) to take over because we, as a people, seem to be growing weary and afraid of governing ourselves. If I gotta have a dictator, then of course I want my dictator. But I’d rather have a Republic…and keeping the Democrats out for another eight or so years just might give us the ability to do so.

Bubonic plague spreads in China. This is pretty bad; but not so bad for us as bubonic plague requires lots of filth to spread…fortunately, garbage isn’t piling up in New York City as the government there collapses due to the Communist mayor’s deliberate and malicious actions. Oh, wait.

It gets really bad if it turns into pneumonic plague; then its human-to-human transmission and tens of millions will die.

Speaking of New York, the Upper West Side has become a garbage dump as the Commie mayor moved homeless people into vacated hotels. It is getting very 1970’s these days in New York City. I’d like to feel sympathy for the people of New York, but I can’t. They voted for the Commie mayor. Twice. They thought it would be so cool and hip to vote for a hard-core Commie! What they apparently didn’t realize is that Commies are serious people…and no matter how much you donate to their campaigns or how much money you slide over to them in various grifts, in the end, Lenin despoils you of all your property and sends you to Gulag.

Oddly, this was reported in the Daily Mail and not a major American MSM outfit: Trump supporters rally in….wait for it….Beverly Hills. I’ve seen some video clips. No, they are not massive rallies…but, they are rallies. And it does take some guts to proclaim your support for Trump in places like Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. Now, don’t get cocky here. I have seen people theorizing about California going red. This will not happen. But I do believe this is an indication that even in the deep blue areas, people are getting fed up with ‘Rona lockdowns (which are arbitrary and senseless and seem to only really hit at things normals like to do…whether its going to church or going out for a drink) and endless riots. Also, as many have noticed: there seems to be far more non-white people at these rallies than we see in Black Lives Matter protests.
