In his own way,  so is Angelo Codevilla.

 

It is later than you think.

“Our imperial regime, already in force, works on a simple principle: the president and the cronies who populate these channels may do whatever they like so long as the bureaucracy obeys and one third plus one of the Senate protects him from impeachment.”

This articulates what I’ve been trying to put into words for years now.

His Majesty: “They’re on to us. Fortunately, much too late.”

Reading through that brings the thought that a lot of people are projecting their desires onto Trump, maybe even more than happened with Obama.

John, people projecting their desires onto political strongmen is a very old phenomenon, hardly new with Trump or Obama.

It’s the best explanation I know for the Association of German National Jews.

This is the issue I have with either people who think this country can be turned around or even with the so-called Benedict Option. Neither are honestly realistic.

Complete retreat is impossible and this isn’t a battle we are going to win (not before some kind of collapse). It is the Battle of Helm’s Deep. We just need to stand firm and wait on the Lord and tough it out the best we can.

That is the best option at this point, because the rest of this country is a canoe 3/4th over a waterfall, furiously paddling downstream.

The time to alter course was decades ago – perhaps in 1840 when Joseph prophesied this govt would be destroyed, because of the way they treated the Saints. If we couldn’t change course as a country then, what makes us think it is realistic now?

Helm’s Deep, and we are waiting for Gandalf to return on the morning of the third day.

“we are waiting for Gandalf to return on the morning of the third day.”

Holy resurrection motif, Zen. I never noticed that before.

A classic comment!

I’ll remember the canoe and Helm’s Deep.

The orcs are everywhere, and I only have a single bladed-ax. Helm’s Deep is getting pretty close, and I live a long way from Rohan. Unfortunately, some of those that look like orcs, might only be ugly people who are merely hangers on in the opposing army.
I worry that someone is going to blow the horn, and instead of noble leaders riding out, we will see a bunch of beserkers.
