I Spoke to Catholic Fiction author Ruth Apollonia about her upcoming book Annabelle of Anchony at the Catholic Marketing Network event in Lancaster PA

The series had been released under a previous publisher and you can get some of them here but for at least one of them the price isn’t cheap so you might consider waiting for the re-release

Donald Trump in NH Aug 15 2015

DaTechGuy: Mr. Trump hundreds of people were waiting in line to see you today, and another 120 were waiting without tickets I interviewed a bunch of them and there were democrats who were crossing over and such. What are they seeing that the GOP establishment and some of the people in this room might not be seeing?

Donald Trump: I love that question.

August 19th 2015 Derry NH

If you are a regular listener to the MSM you might find yourself confused that despite every single one of Trump’s Endorsed candidates winning yesterday the media is portraying the results as signs of doom for the GOP.

Part of this of course is because as Democrats with bylines their primary purpose is to aid the Democrats and liberals in general and defeat republicans and conservative so having already decided on the narrative of doom and despair for the President and the GOP they were going to proclaim it as gospel.

After all they weren’t about to let a little thing like the actual results get in the way.

However in fairness there is a smidgen of truth hidden in their narrative. By every normal standard the GOP should be in trouble. Because of the big red wave in 2010 and 2014 in the house and thanks to the Trump victory in 2016 there are a lot of GOP seats to be defended in districts a lot less red than these. By any reasonable standard even with favorable maps drawn after the 2010 census the left should be able to pick up quite a few of them, perhaps even enough to take back the house.

But there is a wild card in play and that wild card is Donald Trump and the people who turn out for him.

The Trump base aren’t the activists who would normally turn out anyway for the GOP his base are people who would not normally be bothered with general elections let alone midterms. This has been true from day one

Many of them aren’t republicans at all as I noted the very first time I asked candidate Trump a question at a news conference.

It is these voters who normally would not even notice a special election like the ones going on who turned out for Trump.

At the very first event that I covered Donald Trump at I asked this question:

It will be interesting to see what happens with his next event in the state? Will it draw a different audience, will familiar political faces (that I didn’t see many of here) show up, or will it basically be “Trump Groupies”

We now know the answer. Trump turned out a different audience that was enough to win in 2016 and may be enough to save the GOP in 2018.

Lucky for the GOP candidates in marginal districts they don’t have to count on the GOP leadership to figure this out. Donald Trump is smart enough to understand this and with his agenda at stake will undoubtedly do his best to get his voters out in marginal districts to make the difference.

Expect to see a lot more rallies like the ones held last week over the next three months as Trump does what he does best, Win!

“Carthago delenda est”, or “Delenda est Carthago” (English: “Carthage must be destroyed”), is a Latin oratorical phrase. Originating in the Roman Republic in the 2nd century BC prior to the Third Punic War against Carthage, by the party advocating destruction of Rome’s ancient rival Carthage, which was thought to be rebuilding its capacity for further warfare. The phrase is associated with the Roman senator Cato the Elder, who is said to have used it as the conclusion to all his speeches.  WikiPedia

Socialism has again begun to attract followers here in the United States of America.  Less than three decades after the Red Hammer & Sickle flag of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was lowered for the last time, a Socialist that honeymooned their received 13.2 million votes in the (D) presidential primary.  While the citizens of the nation with the largest reserves of oil are reduced to slaughtering race horses for food by their Socialist masters.  A Socialist is the new hotness in a New York congress race.  Indeed Socialism has again begun to attract followers here even if they have to lie about how many.

This is a discouraging development as a nation political party embraces a political philosophy that is antithetical to the founding principles of our Republic.  At the same time it is an opportunity for us recommit to the principles of our founding and to discredit that hoary ideology once again.  We can do this by imitating Cato the Elder, we must patiently and politely, but persistently ask our politicians what they have the done to refute the arguments of Socialism.

It should be a given that the arguments of  Socialism should be repudiated.  “What have you done to refute the arguments of Socialism?”  It should be a given that it is the job of our political leaders to stand up for our Constitution and argue against Socialism.  “What have you done to refute the arguments of Socialism?”   At any event, on social media, in letters to the editor of the local paper;  “What have you done to refute the arguments of Socialism?”  Focus on their actions, ask them to live up to their oath.

If they want to have a debate about Socialism, let us be certain that we are ready for it.  We have all that is required to win.  My only concern is that too many of us think the evils of Socialism are too obvious to justify our concerted effort.  If we don’t show Socialism for the hateful violent failure it is, who will?  Every generation must work to protect Liberty from Tyranny. This is thew work we must do.  Now is the time we must do it.

 Popularis Socialismi delenda est !!
