It's been two weeks since the good folks of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho came out to protect their local downtown district against any possible ANTIFA antics.  In these past days I have had a chance to talk to some people, locals and visitors alike about their reaction to seeing SO MANY PEOPLE on a 6 block strip, all armed.  And I don't mean, concealed, I mean, right out there in your face, big guns...Ak's, AR's, 12 gauge shotguns, hand guns of every sort,  and most people didn't just have one gun, they had several.  There were moms, dads, college students, army vets, bikers, grandmas and grandpas and a variety of good ole boys.  The main street was was bumper to bumper with jacked up trucks with heavily armed people riding in the bed, American flags flyings from their tailgates, minivans, hybrid cars, old junkers and sparkling fancy cars, the scene almost rivaled our famous Car d'Alene event.  It really was something that none of us in this quaint little tourist town had ever experienced!  I for one was so proud of our town that it actually brought tears to my eyes.  And when my sons informed me that they were going downtown to help, I felt a twinge of anxiety mixed with extreme pride that they wanted to be apart of this, to protect the community where they were born and raised. To be clear, my sons are not members of the redneck, good boy club that so many in the media are insisting the majority of our residents are; one is finishing college in Aerospace Engineering and the other a suit & tie wearing executive...so there was all walks of life there.  

The really interesting thing about that night is the town was FULL of tourists.  Coeur d'Alene is a tourist town and since Idaho opened May 1st and many other  places were still in a contrived pandemic, HOSTAGE situation, by June 1st we were pretty full or folks looking for, some, "normal."  Not sure this is what they expected.

The Election

How Never Trump Spent Their First Year in Resistance

Many conservative sites are warning of disaster for the GOP in the 2020 elections—and they are blaming Donald Trump. Well, to be fair, in a way they’re right. Prior to Trump, conservatives had no other option but to vote Republican or stay home. And given the fact that even as the “lesser of two evils,” the Republican candidate had to be better than his or her Democratic opponent, this was the ongoing situation despite the fact that most elected Republicans were as useful as balls on a cow in stemming the Democrat rush to the left. During Obama’s illegitimate reign they played lap-dog and lickspittle to all of his communist trash even allowing “Chief Judas” Roberts to find Obamacare constitutional by ruling it a tax when in fact, taxes can only be levied by the House! Yet, for all of the Republican party’s failure to stop the leftward drive of the country, Republicans were still elected simply because there was no alternative—until Donald Trump!

With the election of someone outside of the control of the Deep State, congressional Republicans—in fact all Republicans—found themselves in a real quandary. They had won “big time!” They had prevailed against the entire Deep State, the Media, the Clintons, the Obamas and the alphabet bureaucracy only to find that the safe good old days of being the “loyal opposition” to the Democrat Left was no longer available to them! What to do?! What to do?! Why become “Never Trumpers,” of course! And that is what they did—and that’s why they’re in trouble!

American conservatives have determined that voting for the GOP is not going to end the steady leftward march of the nation and so they’re not going to put these people back in office—and that is a disaster for the Republican Party! True, if conservatives stay home or only vote for Trump and those who have supported him, more Democrats will be elected. But what difference does it make if the Democrats prevail with or without the Republicans? It is akin to that old Spanish proverb, “Whether the rock hits the pitcher or the pitcher hits the rock, it’s the worse for the pitcher.”

Are there any Republicans at least in the federal government who support Donald Trump? Yes, but very few. Apparently, Marco Rubio, once considered a “safe” conservative, voted against Trump’s efforts to build the wall. Shame on you, sir! Rand Paul, a high-profile conservative, has also refused to support the President’s call for a national emergency to fund the wall. Apparently, he doesn’t see one though only the blind and the dead cannot see what this ongoing invasion is doing to the nation. Shame on you sir! It is this sort of behavior that is going to guarantee a victory for the New Communist (aka Democratic) Party for the foreseeable future—or until there no longer is a future.

The majority of ordinary, decent Americans put Donald Trump in office in hopes of stemming the corruption of the Deep State. So far, Mr. Trump has done his best within the limits of his office without any support from the rest of his party and in the face of ongoing massive media
disinformation and government corruption. Meanwhile, he is blamed for everything from terrorist attacks to sunspots while his only defenders are those who voted him into office in the first place.

Will the Democrats win back everything in 2020? Between the current situation and massive voter fraud, it is more than possible. However, Donald Trump won’t be to blame if they do. It will simply be that the election of Mr. Trump was too little, too late to save this nation.

China’s Hong Kong ‘National Security’ Law Takes Effect, Ending Free Speech

HONG KONG, CHINA - SEPTEMBER 08: Protesters hold American flags as they walk through Central district during a march to petition the US Consulate on September 08, 2019 in Hong Kong, China. Pro-democracy protesters have continued demonstrations across Hong Kong since 9 June against a controversial bill which allows extraditions …

Chinese dictator Xi Jinping signed a decree on Tuesday enacting a “national security” law that allows the Communist Party to antagonize and prosecute dissidents in Hong Kong, triggering global condemnation and widespread concern among participants in the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.

The city – technically part of a China, but legally autonomous from Beijing – has experienced over a year of ongoing protests against China’s many attempts to undermine the “One Country, Two Systems” policy that allows Hongkongers the right to free speech and free assembly. The protest movement took off in mid-2019 in response to a proposed law in the Hong Kong Legislative Council (LegCo) that would have allowed China to extradite anyone present in the city if accused of violating Communist Party laws, which include prison sentences for crimes like “picking quarrels and provoking trouble.”

The Deep Identity of the South

                                                               Conrad Wise Chapman

The Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin lists three kinds of identity in his book Eurasian Mission – diffused, extreme, and deep.  The diffused identity is vague and unconscious so it contributes little to a person’s or a society’s way of viewing himself or itself or the world (Eurasian Mission: An Introduction to Neo-Eurasianism, Arktos, U.K., 2014, p. 116).  It resembles the mindset of Andrew Lytle’s ‘momentary man’, who is aware only of the concerns and pleasures of the present hour. \

The extreme identity ‘is an arbitrary and artificial creation of some rational formula that pretends to express and manifest the diffused identity in the intellectual realm.  Here the identity becomes an ideology, a conceptual framework, or a theory’ (Ibid.).  This should sound disturbingly familiar to Southerners, as it describes precisely the Yankee ideology of ‘Americanism’, of America as a proposition nation.  Accordingly, it equates ideological speculations with the essence of a people, which can only lead to the obscuring and/or disfiguring of the real identity of that people (Ibid.).
The deep identity, however, is different.  It is the true self:

The War of Ignorance against Robert E. Lee

Robert E. Lee, Confederate General in March 1864   

Lee, (By Dixie Townsend, Nine Years Old)

The Slander of a Gallant Soldier, Noble Patriot, and True Christian With Rejoinder by President Dwight D. Eisenhower


On June 11, General Jack Keane, U.S. Army (ret.) appeared on at least two evening Fox News shows.  Although he agreed with President Trump’s position not to rename Army bases named for Confederate generals, for some reason, he went out of his way to condemn Confederates, including Robert E. Lee as traitors. I saw it on Shannon Bream’s show. This was in the midst of wave after wave of wanton mob destruction of not only Confederate monuments but American monuments generally.  Having had a high opinion of Keane as a military analyst, I was shocked that he apparently knew so little about what the Southern cause really was—independence for a number of strong economic,  taxation, constitutional, and general fairness reasons—and that he would specifically slander Robert E. Lee as a traitor.

Police Consider Charging Crowd Confronted By Armed St. Louis Couple With Trespassing, Intimidation


FindLaw explains, “This legal doctrine assumes that if an invader disrupts the sanctity of your home, they intend to do you harm and therefore you should be able to protect yourself or others against an attack. Missouri’s law is more extensive than those of other states because it allows you to use deadly force to attack an intruder to protect any private property that you own, in addition to yourself or another individual. This means that if someone illegally enters your front porch or backyard, you can use deadly force against them without retreating first.”

“At any point that you enter the property, they can then, in Missouri, use deadly force to get you off the lawn,” said Walker, adding.....

Democrat Party Begins Demonizing Mount Rushmore, Refers To July 4 Celebration As ‘Glorifying White Supremacy’

 A very patriotic monument, Mount Rushmore is a giant granite cliff in South Dakota with the heads of four US presidents - Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt (Teddy) - carved into it.It's big. Very big.

The Democrat Party began attacking Mount Rushmore on Monday night from their official Twitter account and referred to upcoming Independence Day celebrations at the famed monument as “glorifying white supremacy.”

“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again,” the Democrats wrote. “He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore – a region once sacred to tribal communities.”

One Man’s Supreme Court: The Chief Justice relies on an abortion precedent he dissented from.


So much for all those crocodile fears about the end of abortion rights. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Monday that a state can’t even require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital.

And the logic of the concurring opinion from Chief Justice John Roberts, who provided the fifth vote, suggests not even de minimis regulation of abortion will survive his Court’s scrutiny.

A woman’s right to abortion wasn’t at issue in June Medical Services v. Russo. No woman seeking an abortion was a plaintiff. The case was brought by abortion providers, who claimed that Louisiana’s requirement that they have admitting privileges at a hospital would be an undue burden on the ability of women to obtain an abortion.

Here’s the stunner: Four years ago a different Court majority overturned a similar Texas statute, with then Justice Anthony Kennedy joining the four liberals. Chief Justice Roberts dissented in that case.

Yet on Monday the Chief joined the liberals, citing his duty to follow precedent.
