Keep Your Mitts Off Our Statues

I am on the road. I can report that the cornfields of Iowa stretch for miles


continue through Nebraska

all the way to the rolling hills of the western side of the state

Take to the backroads for a few days, see the real America

that has no intention of going anywhere.

What We Need Here Is More Sand


Consider this update on the cottage-eating sand dune near Lake Michigan that I reported on last month

silver lake sand duneThe cottage the sand dune swallowed in April, left, the threatened cottage, right.

Man may not be able to dictate to mother nature, but government sure can. From the Detroit Free Press:

Now, the state of Michigan has ordered the Dresslers to stop their latest effort to save the remaining summer home from destruction: The sand is protected as a "critical dune area," so trucking it away is forbidden.

"They're killing us," said David Dressler, 58. "I'm so pissed off right now, I'm beyond words." 

I’ll bet the Dresslers aren’t nearly as upset with Trump pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord as they are with the Michigan DNR’s mandate which places the sand’s right to march ahead of the security of their property. I suspect the State is attempting to find a way to make the Dressler family and other property owners pay for a sand-abatement program.

I apologize if this makes me seem callous towards the recent Islamic terrorist attack in Barcelona but how many acts of barbaric savagery must we obsess over before Western civilization decides to do something rational to stop it?


Under the circumstances continued immigration would be like Silver Lake residents hauling in additional sand to augment their dunes.

Find Me One Honest Journalist


I wonder if we Donald Trump should qualify as the 20th or 21st century’s honest man. I suppose we could cheat a little and count him as both. I doubt it actually matters because - as Colonel Nathan Jessup explained -  most people can’t handle the truth.


They hear only their own truth.

flag lies truth deceit

And denounce anyone who doesn’t agree with it as a denier, liar or worse.

orwell truth and lies

So even when you find your century’s honest man, many will reject the truth.

trump truth

I guess we can’t fault them; when you’ve gone so long without hearing any truth, the real thing is hard to recognize, and even harder to accept.

I leave it to you to ponder whether there is, or ever was, an honest journalist in America. For that search you’ll need more than Diogenes’ lantern.

Rabbit Hole Wednesday: August 16, 2017 edition

Welcome to Rabbit Hole Wednesday. This week we explore how neo-Nazis came to be known to the Deep State Media (DSM) as ‘alt-right’. Any mediocre student of history would recognize this 1984, rabbit hole-ish misnomer for the fallacy it is. The movement that called itself the national socialist party has been previously debunked as a right wing phenomenon. But since that’s not enough for the DSM let’s hear from Hitler himself:

“We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions” – Adolf Hitler, May 1, 1927.

Nevertheless, DSM has determined that neo-Nazis should be labeled “far right” simply for being fascist, and everyone knows that fascists are bad so it is pretty easy to slip down this particular rabbit hole. And nobody should be surprised, once they slip down, to discover that the Left’s tea party is still being hosted by the Mad Hatter of Chicago.

big guy madhatte wmr copy blackRaised by Marxists, matriculated in social justice and steeped in a bath of Alinsky.

It may be helpful to note that in the rabbit hole, just like above ground, appeasement never works. Case in point: PDJT’s Saturday statement regarding the violence in Charlottesville. Calling out all the wacko violence on both sides was not satisfactory for the DSM. They demanded that the President specifically condemn the neo-Nazi’s. So he did. But that wasn’t satisfactory either; now they are demanding Steve Bannon's head, along with Sebastian Gorka’s and Steve Miller’s for the crime of being alt-right (as determined and branded by the DSM).

As the great Rush-bo first pointed out decades ago, the Left will always tell you who they fear most as that’s who they will attack most ferociously. Have we ever seen DSM go after the likes of a Ryan, McConnell, McCain? Of course not, they always crumble and grovel when accused of anything by DSM. But Bannon, Gorka and Miller? They annihilate both their opponents and their spokesmouths  - generally one and the same in the rabbit hole – at every confrontation.

off with their heads red-queen-queen-of-hearts

Therefore they must go. Here’s a recap of the entire Charlottesville rabbit hole episode in two tweets.

“We Had To Destroy The Village In Order To Save It”

Never before have we seen such a naked display of the progressive’s philosophy of “by any means necessary.”


The Media/Deep State Complex has been in high gear since the presidential election of 2016, working to annihilate Trump and all the Deplorables that brought him to Washington. Joined by the Marxists amongst us they’ve become formidable.

If their Alinsky inspired soft coup is ultimately successful and they manage to oust the duly elected President  the official progressive text will claim they had to destroy the president in order to save the presidency.

destroy trump

Run by the tag team of a Deep State obstructionists, hardcore Marxists and orchestrated by the Deep State Media (DSM), the BAMN coalition is committed to taking down the democratic republic and replacing it with a banana republic run by thugs.

AFP_LC1TDAnd they wonder why we’re mad?

We sent Trump to Washington to clean up the mess and they just keep throwing garbage at us.


They’re the ones who’ve declared war. We need to stop them. By Any Means Necessary. There, I said it…and I mean it. And no, I’m not sorry. And I have no intention of engaging in “dialogue” with them.

mark twain stupid people

I’m going to go have some more covfefe and hatch a plan.

I Don’t Think Diversity Means What You Think It Means

The riots and death in Charlottesville are the physical manifestation of the idea of separateness.  If the thought is the father of the deed, the children of hate, the offspring of "by any means necessary" and the scions of superiority so long in gestation, are finally being born. Donald Trump's plea for calm and his exhortation to remember "we are all Americans first" may find scant resonance among those for whom hyphens come first of all.  The war of the hyphens has broken out, and for its combatants there is only one thought: how do I get back at the enemy hyphen? The long sought-after goal of diversity has been attained and it is not what many imagined. – Richard Fernandez

Obama_Logo_DiversityIndeed, diversity is not at all what you think it means

Fernandez’ observation is so true that when President Trump says “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides...” it’s not good enough for anyone left of center, which is to say the entire Democratic party. Their complaint: he didn’t specifically condemn “white supremacy,” a hate group that the Left invented and now wishes to pretend they didn’t (although history debunks their revisionist claims).

In fact, all hyphenated ethnic nationalism is the product of the Democratic party: black nationalism, Hispanic nationalism, Asian nationalism, Arab nationalism; the Left owns all of the hyphens. In fact they’ve been so successful at creating identity groups, and people identify so strongly with their group that reputation and authority are no longer recognized outside of a membership group.” This type of non-civilized group affiliation is also known as tribalism, Yeah, yeah, I know: that’s RACIST! I’m going to go sit in the corner and think about what I’ve said.


If you need me, and I can’t imagine you will, you know where to find me.

Fly Away On the Wind

wire fairies2
Dancing With Dandelions, Wire Fairy Sculptures by Robin Wright
Some days we just need a respite from the dreary, weary real world.

fairies by yeats
We simply need a little magic – a bit of pixie dust if you will – to make us believe again:

Fairies March to Pixie Dust TreeThe Fairy March to the Pixie Dust Tree

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.
- William Butler Yeats

So fly away this misty morning…

fairy r wright

fly away on the wind


sail on to the water.


And stand in awe of God’s imprimatur.
