Oh, I am heartily tired of hearing about what Lee is going to do. Some of you always seem to think he is suddenly going to turn a double somersault, and land in our rear and on both of our flanks at the same time. Go back to your command, and try to think what we are going to do ourselves, instead of what Lee is going to do.

U.S Grant at the Battle of the Wilderness May 6th 1864

Yesterday I pointed out that the idea that DA Allen Bragg wants to indict Trump for political reasons is both:

  1. A travesty of justice and a threat to the republic
  2. Not an argument for voting for Trump vs a better possible candidate
  3. Has brought out some of the worst in his surrogates attacking not Bragg but possible primary opponents

Having said these things there is an excellent article at PJ media (I know that’s a redundant statement but I digress…) that points out how this entire business shows some of the best features of Trump when it comes to fighting against our political foes.

This is pure speculation, but does appear that the combination of Trump getting in front of the narrative and scrutiny from House Republicans gave Bragg a temporary case of cold feet. I do think that he has been dreaming about the perverse star turn he’ll get from indicting Trump for so long that he will eventually go through with it. When he does, Trump’s public relations machinations of the past week will probably make it backfire on Bragg even more than it would have if he’d had done it on Tuesday.

Trump has definitely had his “A” game going in this situation. That hasn’t always been the case in recent months (see: “DeSantimonius”). When he’s focused he can play PR chess better than anybody.

The reason why this is the case is something right out of one of my favorite books of all time Pratt’s Preble’s Boys where he notes the phrase: “Having decided on Battle”.

Rather than acting in fear of Bragg, the grand jury or the Soros Machine targeting him Trump choose to fight and “Having decided on battle” he like any good general decided to choose the terrain for what was coming.

In fact, Trump is so good at this that, at some point in the last few days, it almost seemed as if control of the situation shifted from Bragg to him. It was Trump, not Bragg’s office, who told the public that he would be arrested on Tuesday of this week. When that didn’t happen, it made Bragg look weak.

The fact that the grand jury wasn’t seated on Wednesday really made it seem as if Bragg was faltering

Personally my favorite bit was causing massive numbers of the press to rush out to cover protests that weren’t happening basically turning the press scrum into the Monty Python Wicker’s Island skit

And of course all of this gave time to his allies in the house to start bringing heat as well. and it produced this hilarious response from Chuck Schumer the Senator who represents Bragg in NY

And more importantly when Trump has been able to not only direct the flow and pace of the story but is able to highlight Bragg’s failures

On Wednesday morning, Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social that Bragg was having problems with the grand jury. “The Rogue prosecutor, who is having a hard time with the Grand Jury, especially after the powerful testimony against him by Felon Cohen’s highly respected former lawyer, is attempting to build a case that has NEVER BEEN BROUGHT BEFORE AND ACTUALLY, CAN’T BE BROUGHT,” he claimed. “If he spent this time, effort, and money on fighting VIOLENT CRIME, which is destroying NYC, our once beautiful and safe Manhattan, which has become an absolute HELLHOLE, would be a much better place to live!”

It’s worth noting that when he targets Bragg he (Trump) looks confident and unafraid and running the show because he know that left for what it is and more importantly is not afraid of them.

That’s the reason more than anything else why so many on the right love Trump and would be delighted to see him back in the White House

Closing thought:

Contrast his handling of Bragg & Company to his targeting of DeSantis which has a whiff of impotence about it as the Governor has brushed it aside. That’s the difference between fighting leftists without substance and fighting a conservative who has substance and knows it..

There seems to be a lot of weird things going on with the NFL in terms of rulings and results. Many odd endings, many surprise finishes and results. It makes games rather interesting.

A lot of people have commented on these things but nobody is talking about the elephant in the room which is the proliferation of gambling on sports.

Can anyone tell me why we should not assume that the hundreds of millions being bet on the NFL is not affecting how the game is played, coached or refed?

Old friend Ladd Ehlinger (Filmladd) now has a Youtube Channel, you can find it and his material here:

I suggest subscribing, I’d do it myself but as you all know I’ve been permanently suspended from youtube for daring to suggest that election 2020 was not completely honest.

For the record you can find most of my material than managed to migrate on my Rumble channel here.

The first two episodes of season 3 of The Chosen are now both available so those of us who did not go to the theatre are caught up.

They have already managed to pay for two complete episodes of season 4 and are less than $32,000 away from making it three out of 8 as of this writing.

It will be interesting to see how much more of season four is paid for as the next four episodes are broadcast along with a 2nd movie premiere that is apparently planned for episodes 7 & 8. They’re 15 million to go to finish funding that season. I’d not be surprised if have it all funded before Easter (April 9th) but I suspect that before this season has been broadcast they will be at least 5 episodes completely paid for.

While this has been the slowest Christmas I’ve ever seen at work we had a tiny burst of orders this week.

It seems a lot of people believe that if you order something with two day delivery seven days before Christmas you’ll still manage to get it on time. Of course if EVERYONE decides to try to order 2nd day at the same time then there isn’t enough capacity to get everything in time delivered.

This happens every single Christmas as if nobody every learns. That’s one thing I’ll give Amazon, they started warning people “This will arrive after Christmas” last week.

Of course if you celebrate all seven days of Christmas that’s not a problem.

Finally the Jan 6th committee kangaroo court has decided recommended charges against Donald Trump in their last days and the media is practically orgasmic.

It’s a testament to how effective Donald Trump was as president that the left/media has spent the last six years going through so much effort to demonize him even to the point (as the twitter files expose) of the FBI actively working to help fix the election.

My thought is it would have been a lot easier for the deep state to not worry about it and ride out a re-election. By now they’d be almost done with him and able to resume business and graft as usual. In fact I suspect if they had made a deal or two with him early he wouldn’t have gotten in their way all that much.

If it was worth that much effort to keep him from the office the rot that is going on must be a lot worse and a lot deeper than we even now currently think. It also explains why the left was so panicked about Musk taking over Twitter.

Yet for some reason Trump scared them so much that they have come out into the open to be seen, giving us the choice to deal wit it or let it be. That more than anything else has been the greatest legacy of his administration that it has given us the people the choice of keeping our republic or freely letting it go.

May we choose wisely.

The full statement is available at Glenn’s site here.

I’m wondering if someone at Twitter in a last act of defiance will “accidently” lose all Trump’s old tweets so the account will have to start fresh. I’m sure it will be an accident.

What will be really funny will be the reactions on twitter, particularly if he’s back up before Monday.

This will be fun.

The mood struck me to do a spontaneous podcast.

I talk Trump, How the left is trying to intimidate us and a story of a black immigrant woman that is bad news for the left

You can watch it here

Eventually all of this will be on Rumble but till all my youtube videos are moved we’ll still be there.
