Travels in the Southeast

I have traveled some around the United States, but mostly in Texas, the Midwest, the Northeast.  I have passed through Mississippi and Louisiana, but I had never been to Alabama or Georgia -- except for changing planes in Atlanta a few times, or the Carolinas.

This past week, I got a chance to take a road trip with a friend, and we headed toward Memphis.  I walked around on Beale Street.  That was great.  I thought it would be the highlight of the trip as I ate in Jerry Lawler's restaurant down there.  It was late in the day as we headed out, and we ended up staying at a hotel in Grenada, MS.  The next morning I kind of wanted to go on down to the Gulf Coast, but my friend wanted to go to Stone Mountain.

We cut across Alabama, through Birmingham, and on to Atlanta and got a hotel at Stone Mountain, GA.  The next morning was cool and damp.  We drove around the mountain, a massive, naked granite uplift.  We stopped by the grist mill and took some pictures then walked up to view the huge bas relief carved into the rock --

After leaving Stone Mountain, we headed for Savannah.  As navigator, I accidentally caused us to drive past a sign that said "Whistle Stop Cafe".  This led to a detour through Juliette, GA, which was where the location shooting for the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" was done.

Full disclosure:  I am not gay (NTTAWWT), however, my traveling companion is a female.  I was confident this was not the highlight of my trip.

A little further down the road, we reached Macon, GA.  There is a place there called The Big House:

I thought this would be the highlight of my trip.

The next day we walked around Savannah.  It is a beautiful city, but it does smell funny -- all that Spanish moss hanging off the live oaks, the boggy ground, and such.  Low country makes me nervous.

The little squares are pretty, and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is truly awe-inspiring.  I sat down inside the church and began to pray.  I started crying.  Neither words nor pictures can do justice to the other-worldliness of being in this sacred space.

This was probably the highlight of my trip.

Or not.

I'm going to end here for now because this is getting pretty long.  I may post more tomorrow.

What Happens Now

First, there will be a massive media onslaught.  They are back on their heels, stunned by what has happened, but they will soon rally and try to set the stage for failure, just as they have done in the past.

Second, apparently, there will be blood -- police are investigating the black-on-white attack of a Trump supporter.  The globalists and leftist political leaders and the media -- their ministry of truth -- are fully responsible for this incident as well as the violent "protests" taking place in various cities.

The war is just starting, and, at its base, it is nationalism versus globalism, the "new world order", the one-worlders against those who believe in borders and culture and, yes, blood and soil. The enemy is not going to let up.  People allegedly on the right, like Glen Beck, are still trying to push the narrative that culture, religion, and genetics do not matter.  They do matter.  I am who I am to a great extent because of the genetic heritage passed down from my ancestors.  Most of the rest is the culture heritage they bequeathed to me.  The same is true of the Syrians and Somalis pushing into Germany or the Mexicans and Central Americans pushing into our own Southwest.

I don't deserve any credit for my heritage.  Neither do I blame those other groups for theirs.  It is just a simple fact:  we are different.  I cannot be Guatemalan and some nice fellow from Somalia can't be a weird combination of Saxon, Irish and Scandinavian.

White people voted as white people in this election -- not because we are evil and racist, but because our best interests are not served by continuing to allow an influx of third-worlders.  We have stood by as identity politics have gained controlled of the federal government.  We were told that to oppose this would be racist and xenophobic.  It isn't wrong to want your own country, your own culture, history, and way of life preserved and protected.

I certainly have no objection to black people, people of Latin American heritage, Middle-easterners or Asians or anyone else voting for and seeking after their own self-interest.  All I ask is the same consideration.  I would also point out that the reason so many people from other countries want to come to the West and to America in particular is that we have built a wealthy, peaceful, and prosperous society on the foundations of Christianity and our European culture.  Oddly enough, one of the pillars upholding our society and making civilization viable and functional is respect for the rule of law.

Anyway, we have tough times ahead.  The easy part, in some ways, is behind us.  I am thankful to God that we do not have to contend with the Clintons or Bushes anymore.  For being the instrument who helped shut down those two political families, our nation owes Donald Trump a debt of gratitude.

I am surprised by the response of the markets so far.  I suspect the Fed will raise rates at their next meeting.

At least firearms and ammo won't be going up price or becoming scarce for a little while.  Every cloud has a silver lining and all.  

I think the Republican Party might now survive, but it is going to have to purge the globalists, the Chamber of Commerce, and the crony capitalists.  It will have an appeal if it embraces nationalism and becomes, in essence, the American Party.  That's going to be a fight, too.  At least the enemy has been identified.  Don't forget.  They will be trying to worm their way back into our good graces.  Check the internet.

Also, get on  I was never on Twitter, but Gab is pretty cool.  I like it.  If you want to look me up, look for Drano American.
