Woohoo!!

Long-time PoliNation reader and budding SciFi author, Christine Chase, is about to be published for the first time! I’m so proud, I could just bust!

MAGA 2020 & Beyond

Generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals.

This was the moment we came together to elect Donald Trump to President of the United States of America.

MAGA 2020 & Beyond tell the tales of a prosperous future where evil is defeated, the border wall is built, society has righted itself, space exploration is common and world peace has been attained. These aren’t just fantastical stories of a far fetched future, they are stories of a future that can be obtained.

It is easier to smash than to build

2017 Universities turning out terrorists

I just finished reading Trial Run by Dick Francis. Written in 1978, it was largely set in Moscow, which I visited in 1972. I was there in early spring, the protagonist in late autumn, so the weather was somewhat different. But I found a lot of it felt the same as what I remember … a grim, gray city filled with unfriendly, unhappy people. Like the protagonist, I was giddy at returning to my home where, with all its faults, I could go where I chose, speak my mind freely, and smile at people.

These paragraphs from the very end of the book speak to me from across the decades. Terrorism was new back then. It isn’t now. Yet Francis captured its spirit so accurately.

“I looked across for the last time at the naked hate-filled faces of international terrorism, and thought about alienation and the destructive steps which led there.

“The intensifying to anger of the national scorn of youth for the mess their elders had made of the world. The desire to punish violently the objects of scorn. The death of love for parents. The permanent sneer for all forms of authority. The frustration of not being able to scourge the despised majority. And after that, the deeper, malignant distortions. . . . The self-delusion that one’s feelings of inadequacy were the fault of society, and that it was necessary to destroy society in order to feel adequate. The infliction of pain and fear, to feed the hungry ego. The total surrender of reason to raw emotion, in the illusion of being moved by a sort of divine rage. The choice of an unattainable end, so that the violent means could go on and on. The addictive orgasm of the act of laying waste.”

“‘What are you thinking?’ the Major General said.

“‘That they are self-indulgent.’ I turned away from them with a sense of release. ‘It is easier to smash than to build.'”

What Happened?

The only book about Hillary Clinton that I want to read is “What REALLY Happened in Benghazi.”

2017_09 What happened

In her book, Hillary reportedly blames her loss on a fake voter turn-out study, Russia, FBI Director James Comey, the “bankrupt” DNC, misogyny and sexism.

Her last book bombed and she’s been whining the same garbage for months to anyone who will listen. If Simon & Schuster takes a bath on “What Happened”, they will totally deserve it.

Democrats Alienate Catholics

Can a Catholic Be a Democrat

Book Description: In recent years, the conflict between his faith and the policies of his party has grown so marked that author Carlin, a cradle Catholic, lifetime Democrat, and longtime Democratic legislator, now feels compelled to consider in his new book whether, in good conscience, it’s even possible to be both a faithful Catholic and a Democratic true believer.

Excerpts from an opinion piece by Salena Zito, a columnist for the Washington Examiner:

In states like Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and all through the Midwest, the Catholic vote is a very important voting bloc no matter what you are running for. The last thing Democrats should be doing is to purposefully stiff-arm people we are going to need to win.

But that’s what they’re doing.

Last week during a confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett, a nominee for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, Dianne Feinstein, the Democratic U.S. senator from California, attacked Barrett for her Roman Catholic faith.

The face of the Democratic Party has increasingly become the face of celebrity, scold, and entitlement. The people they used to attract to their “stand for the working class” creed have faded from their reach; they have lost touch with their needs and values and they certainly have lost touch with any type of meaningful message.

They do not celebrate hard work, they demand supporters are pro-abortion, expect them to be agnostic and also expect them to stand for their multitude of identity politics. Instead of bringing people together and being part of a greater political party, division is the only way forward.

A nationwide exit polling data shows Trump won Catholics by 52 percent to 45 percent over Hillary Clinton. A huge swing from the past two elections for Barack Obama when Catholics voted for him by margins of 9 points in 2008 and 2 points in 2012.

Gaining Insight Into Today’s Political and Cultural Scene

I’ve been reading How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization.  It’s a fascinating book that makes a very compelling argument for why Catholic-Christianity is responsible for the moral, ethical, and legal basis for Western civilization.

When the author compares some element of Western civilization with the way the pagan world operated in Christ’s time, I am often struck by how similar the pagan world was to the way the Left wants our world to become.

I recommend this book, even if you’re no fan of Catholicism.  All of Christianity was Catholic until 1517, by which time Western civilization was well established.

Even where they reject certain Catholic doctrines, most Protestants take Catholic values for granted.  This is very evident in the Constitution, which was written by Protestants and which the Left wants to radically alter.

This book can give you a good insight into the political and cultural battles we face today and make it even more clear that it’s not so much a political and cultural battle as it is a spiritual one.

Gosnell Update

From Ann McElhinney:

I wanted to let you know that our book, Gosnell – The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer is now available on Audible as an audiobook.  I am the narrator.

I didn’t imagine it would be difficult to record the audiobook, but it was.  Many times I had to stop and it wasn’t because I made a mistake.

Based on a recommendation from a friend, we hired an audio producer to record the book. Like most of industry people in LA, she was a liberal. But she cried many times during the recording and thanked me for writing this story, which she had never heard of before.

Here is what she said after we finished:

“I had an extraordinary experience with this book. It affected me deeply, and opened my thought to explore this issue in ways I hadn’t considered. McElhinney’s approach to the subject was thoughtful and academic, and it was clear that she took great pains to avoid any specific political bias in the telling of this story. I came away with new insight into the subject.”

She also told the Gosnell story to liberal friends and had played parts of the audio for them and they were all stunned and needed to re-think their position on abortion in the US.

That just confirmed what we already knew about the Gosnell book – those who read it will never be the same again. It has the power to move hearts and change minds.

Not everyone has the time to sit down with the book, so we made the audio version hoping people might be able to listen to it during the work commute or on their walk.

Audible  is an Amazon company featuring hundreds of thousands of books. The first month is free and you can get your first book – the Gosnell book – for free. The membership is $14.95 a month after the 30 days and there is a free book of your choice every month included in the membership.

Your can join Audible and get the Gosnell book for free HERE:

Gosnell Update

Last week, The New York Times excluded the Gosnell book from its list of best sellers, despite it having been the fourth best selling book in America.

  • Their STATED reason is “to provide Times readers our best assessment of what books are the most broadly popular at that time” by considering the “context” of book sales, rather than their numbers!
  • Their REAL reason is simple.  They don’t like the seamy, disgusting truth this story reveals about the abortion industry in this nation.

Don’t let them suppress this message!

Buy this book:  Gosnell – The Untold Story of Americas Most Prolific Serial Killer.  Read it.  Give it away.  Donate it to your library.

The proceeds will help Ann and Phelim get the movie into theaters, something that has also been suppressed by pro-abortion Hollywood.
