As I wrote yesterday, it’s been a good week for populism and national sovereignty. It’s easy to get caught up in the myriad defeats on our side, and it’s frustrating that we seem to rally only at the last possible moment to prevent total catastrophe, but it’s worthwhile to look back at our victories from time to time.
To that end, this edition of Lazy Sunday is dedicated to looking back at some conservative victories. One of the pieces looks back at our greatest Secretary of State, who although was a part of the totalizing New England faction that dominates progressive thought today, also helped created our national borders with his diplomatic finesse.
- “Independence Day” – This post was a brief celebration of Great Britain’s final exit from the blight that is the European Union. Hip, hip, hooray!
- “Trump Stands for Us” – This piece linked to an essay from my blogger buddy photog, “The Unique Value of the Trump Presidency“; both photog’s original and my commentary are worth reading. There’s a popular meme that shows President Trump sitting sternly, pointing directly at the viewer, with a caption that reads something along the lines of, “They’re not after me, they’re after YOU; I’m just in the way.” Boy, does that speak volumes. As photog points out, President Trump truly does stand with us, the American people. In part, he does that simply by not despising us the way our elites do.
- “Mueller Probe Completed, Trump Vindicated” – Before the Ukraine impeachment hoax, there was the Russian collusion hoax. How soon we forget. While Mueller declined to write in his report that Trump could be fully vindicated, he also couldn’t make a case for Russian collusion. Trump did nothing wrong! After the Senate acquits GEOTUS this week, I wonder what scary Slavic country they’ll pick next. Maybe they’ll allege that President Trump is in league with Viktor Orban in Hungary? That would make me support him even more!
- “#MAGAWeek2018 – John Quincy Adams” – A bit of an outlier here, but I wrote a fairly lengthy rundown of John Quincy Adams—probably our best Secretary of State, and one of our worst presidents—back in summer 2018 as part of #MAGAWeek2018. JQA and his New England Puritan ilk can probably be faulted for many of the one-size-fits-all solutions progressives plague us with today (although he would have recoiled at what progressives want), but he was a genius in terms of foreign policy, and he was a sincere nationalist, in the best sense of that amorphous term: he wanted to make American great, physically and economically. It’s a worthwhile read to get some more insights into a largely forgotten historical figure.
That’s it for today! Let’s keep winning in 2020, and KEEP AMERICA GREAT!
