American Restoration Newsletter #2
Numbered so you can collect them all!
Please forward to anyone who should have it...and no one who shouldn't.
I’m going to open this edition—as I did the last one and will likely do the next one (then I’ll probably stop)—with an apology to anyone who receives a duplicate. I’m gravitating my American Restoration Newsletter from Mailchimp to Substack, and I’ll probably have to run a couple of editions on both platforms. If nothing else, this forum creates a nice space for my tip jar (or hat).
I know it’s been a bit since my last newsletter, but life, family travel, and the High Holidays have slowed me down a tad. Still, it’s not as if I have nothing to show for the past few weeks.
I was particularly pleased to break into a new forum for thoughtful (i.e., lengthier) essays. My first piece for the Claremont Institute’s American Mind, “Woke Crescent,” explains just how Joe Biden could call our total surrender in Afghanistan an “extraordinary success.” The answer is easy: He’s pleased handing the country over to the Taliban because Islamists like the Taliban are progressives’ allies of choice.
Moving across the political aisle from the obscenities of progressivism to the pathologies of conservatism, RealClearPolitics ran my essay explaining how “The Conservative Temperament is Dooming America.” It combines an explanation of the internal conflict roiling the GOP with (yet another) call for the sort of counterrevolutionary restoration at issue in The New Civil War.
Meanwhile, over on talk radio, my column on The Great Awokening continued to generate interest. I had lengthy discussions about America’s new established religion with Denver’s John Rush and with Orlando’s Matt Buff.
Finally, on my Substack, I posted three very different essays. Philosophy & Politics for Modern Life revived my original thinking back when I first got into the blog game in 2005. I’m pleased with how well it’s held up—which is why I brought it back to life, today.
The Enemy Within also brings some important previous work up to date: it outlines the coalition that progressivism has build to bring down America.
My Open Letter to the Medical Profession is a plea for help. I'm trying to understand the medical case for vaccinating children against Covid-19 (when such an option becomes available). I’d really like an answer before they come for my kids. The threat is palpable. My kid’s school has announced that, as soon as it becomes legal for them to do so, they plan to compel all students to take a completely unnecessary, experimental medical treatment. The folks running the school are really pretty decent people. How have they fallen low enough to sound like war criminals? (Seriously, if you’ve seen a single source making the medical case for vaccinating 5-11 year olds, I’d love to see it).
Enjoy! And if you do, remember that there’s now a hat available for tipping (and subscribing)!
As always, feedback and comments are welcome.
