·        The Week In Pictures: Martha’s Vineyard Sequel

·        More reason why November 8 can’t come soon enough and more reason to hope that a red tsunami engulfs Washington, D.C. The DOJ and FBI have to be dismembered and rebuilt.

·        This big-time L.A. attorney was apparently Avenatti’s role model. So far, it appears that the Democrats who benefitted intend to keep the money. They include Biden, Obama, Hillary, Eric Swalwell and several others.

·        Gov. Abbott and Gov. DeSantis’ shipping illegal immigrants to blue state sanctuary cities has apparently had the effect intended. The Border Crisis is the new Roe in Google searches, and the media has had to cover an issue they have studiously ignored. I hope people head to the polls on Nov. 8 with this fresh in their minds.

·        Saw this on Tucker Carlson’s program. I know two of the individuals named and hope Tucker’s actions have the desired effect.

·        I think Margaret Thatcher once quoted or referred to this poem. One of my favorites since I was a child has always been “If” by Rudyard Kipling. It was written to his son. I’ve had a copy if it all my life. This one deserves to be placed next to it.

No Enemies

by Charles Mackay

You have no enemies, you say?
Alas! my friend, the boast is poor;
He who has mingled in the fray
Of duty, that the brave endure,
Must have made foes! If you have none,
Small is the work that you have done.
You've hit no traitor on the hip,
You've dashed no cup from perjured lip,
You've never turned the wrong to right,
You've been a coward in the fight.

·        On Being A Serious Country. Excellent. Really excellent.

“[H]ere is the question that concerns me most. Would a serious country so completely lose perspective on its own past that it would entertain the idea that the nation was founded on slavery, rather than on the ideals that have made it a beacon to the rest of the world? And would a serious country think it appropriate to teach its children that their nation’s past is best understood as a parade of horrors, to which the most appropriate response is not pride but lacerating shame?”

·        There may be hope for Italy. It looks like Georgia Meloni will be the next Prime Minister.

·        ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday doesn’t bode well for Biden or the Democrats. 56% of Democrats don’t want Joe to run in 2024.

·        Something is going on in China. Coup rumors are probably untrue, but something’s up.

·        From the paper of record with fake news you can trust. Exclusive: so-called ‘Hero Dog’ sniffed numerous butts during college parties. He identified as pansniffual.

·        In major screw-up, government accidentally shuts itself down with ban on non-essential businesses.
