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.

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
