It seems to me that if our side of the struggle has a name for its efforts in the election (operation chaos), then we should make sure there is a name for the other side’s efforts as well.  Of course, by the other side I am thinking of MSNBC, CNN, NY Times and the rest of the MSM, all the George Soros funded organizations (Center for American Progress etc), and the Hollywood left…

Let’s call their effort “Operation Coronation”.  Every time Chris Matthews’ leg tingles, every time the NY Times puts on the front page a thinly sourced story about McCain’s affair with a lobbyist, every time a George Soros funded 527 organization runs an attack ad, it will be “Operation Coronation” in action….

It’ll stick, because you can’t get a more accurate description than that…

It seems the country is back to 1860 on the eve of the Civil War, rather than in 2018, during the greatest age of affluence, leisure, and freedom in the history of civilization. The ancient historian Thucydides called the civil discord that tore apart the ... Read More
