Books:

Blitz – Trump Will Smash The Left And Win, David Horowitz

Quote from Amazon Review: “The effort to remove and destroy our duly elected President may be the greatest challenge America has faced since the Civil War, explains Horowitz. For the first time BLITZ exposes the left’s strategy to take down Trump, and how Trump not only beat them at their own game, but how he’s turning the tables on them to achieve a stunning reelection win come November.”

TV/Streaming:

Yellowstone, Official Trailer, Season 2, (video, left)

CS Commentary: Season 3 currently uploaded on Amazon Prime episode by episode. All seasons available for purchase. Shades of ‘Dallas’, but probably better and with more of a ‘film’ type of feel, this series is Kevin Costner’s first. It may be the cap on a stellar career. One of the best female villains ever, played by Kelly Reilly – but is she really a villain? Only time will tell. The Dutton family tries to keep their cattle ranch in Montana from incursions of a national park, a reservation, land developers, and shark-like hedge fund managers. They will have to wage war in the midst of family tragedy – and internecine conflict – to have a chance of succeeding. CS Grade, 1st 2 seasons: A

Quotes Of The Month:

“Systemic” racism is an odd term for the radical left to choose considering the “systems” they are complaining about are overwhelmingly run by far-left Democrats, and have been for decades.” — Dan Bogino, podcaster and former Secret Service Agent

“What’s more important: Going to church or violent protests? Going to a loved one’s funeral or tearing down statues? Running your business or snitching on your neighbor? The answer’s obvious to YOU. But not Democrats.” — Rep. Jim Jordan, US Congressman from Ohio
