The Disconnect…

The political pendulum has never, in the history of humanity, stayed on one side of a swing. Likewise, the resulting backlash is always, always, directly proportionate to how far off skew it was taken before corrective action was engaged.  ~ SD

Foolishness, selfishness, corruption and betrayal of our nation by it’s political elites have  served to reveal dangers within our republic.  Exhausted, we accepted that 2016 was the time when forceful correction needed to be applied. However, misplaced corrective action, regardless of intent, would be neither safe nor wise.

The media are disconnected from the reality of their landscape yet seem to find themselves opining about political violence.  Those media voices would be wise to remind themselves that candidate Donald Trump, now President Trump, was the “lesser extreme” strategy for correction.  As President Trump said during a recent rally in Iowa: “they’re lucky our side isn’t violent.”  He was entirely accurate.   President Trump is the last best option.

There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior.  Cold Anger does not need to go to violence.  For those who carry it, no conversation is needed.  You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion.  And that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.

Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful.

Hatred takes energy.  Cold Anger is not willing to give energy to the opposition.

Cold Anger absorbs betrayal silently, often prudently.

Betrayal lies at the originating cellular level for Cold Anger.

We’ve watched the shooting of cops, and the protests parades which followed, absorbing.

Cold Anger takes notice of the liars, even from a great distance – seemingly invisible to the mob.  Cold Anger will still hold open the door for the protest parade goer.  Mannerly.

Cold Anger when evidenced is more severe because it is more strategic. It is more deliberate; Cold Anger is far more purposeful.

Cold Anger does not gloat; a central tenet is to absorb consistent vilification and ridicule as fuel.

This sense of Cold Anger does not want to exist.  It is forced to exist in otherwise unwilling hosts – who would much rather be sensing something more productive, yet each person refuses to be destabilized by it.

The productive and polite life continues, but the larger notations necessarily remain. Keen awareness and acceptance of the surroundings is a trait of those carrying Cold Anger.

Deliberate intent and prudence ensures avoiding failure.  The course, is thoughtful vigilance;  a strategy essentially devoid of emotion, hence ‘Cold’.

Cold Anger is not driven to act in spite of itself; it drives a reckoning.  Patience is not acceptance; time is simply measured for optimal value.

When the well attired leave the checkout line carrying steaks and shrimp using an EBT or SNAP card, the door is still held open; yet notations necessarily embed.

When the border is left unguarded, it is accepted to be unguarded for a purpose.

When the United States flag lays undefended, perhaps gleefully unattended, it does not lay unattended and unnoticed.  It is being well noted.

When a school community cannot openly pray, it does not mean the prayerful were absent.

When a liar seems to win, it is not without observation.  Many – more than the minority would like to admit – know the difference between science, clocks and a political agenda.

Cold Anger perceives deception the way a long-term battered spouse absorbs the blow in the hours prior to the pre-planned exit; with purpose.

A shield, or cry of micro-aggression will provide no benefit, nor quarter.  Delicate sensibilities are dispatched like a feather in a hurricane.

Pushed far enough, decisions are reached.

Everyone should be thankful for the opportunity President Trump is providing.

Happy Independence Day!

    AUTHOR: Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–59)

    QUOTATION: I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers—and it was not there … in her fertile fields and boundless forests—and it was not there … in her rich mines and her vast world commerce—and it was not there … in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution—and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.

    As Sundance has alluded, if not outright stated somewhere that I can’t recall, regarding Donald Trump’s decades of observation and concern about the theft of America’s wealth and freedoms; there is no doubt President Trump securely harbors an immense store of Cold Anger.

    Thank God he is now in a position to act on it.

    For the sake of his success and America’s well-being I pray for the following:

    The utter annihilation of the schemes of the media and their empire.

    The absolute repudiation of Leftist Fabulists and Bolsheviks.

    The shaming of Congress such that they grow spines, deliver an honest days work for more days of the year than the precious darlings can currently endure, and support our President without reservation. No more grandstanding, and self-dealing.

    That Heaven will spare us from the likes of McCain and Obama and Soros and the vast array of the enemies of freedom.

    That our wonderful, brilliant and magnaminous President will be preserved and protected, his days lengthened, that he may complete his work and see his grand-children and his Country enjoy the fruit of his labors.

    Most of all, that our Nation will endure and recover, return to righteousness, prosper, and ever be the beacon of hope and an exemplar of the highest order to all nations, not that they may flee to our shores, rather that they may endow their own children with freedom and publish peace in their own lands.

    Happy Independance Day to the Best Bunch on the Web!

      Oh Maquis, your sobriquet and your voice ring so true!
      ‘The Resistance’ – shame on Demonrats with their gimmick-name!

      Patriots everywhere celebrated the election of our President. In Europe they’re enduring genuine suffering right now: arrest for thought-crimes, censorship enforced by crushing fines and even prison. Crimes of violence against them go unreported, unpunished, while self-defense is criminalized.

      When the Visegrád gets a voice, and Poland is celebrated, people like Tommy Robinson and Geert Wilders and millions more are breathing hope.

      The City on the Hill is, as always, a beacon.
      America is herself again.

    Gods will and Americans filled with cold anger gave President Donald J. Trump to America and American’s all over this nation are filled with cold anger towards the Left, Antifa, Globalists, and political HACKS in the House and Senate who are more interested in protecting their selfish interests than doing RIGHT by America.

    The gig is up and the monster (voters) have been awakened and will NOT be denied any longer. NATIONALISM is alive and well and we’re healing under the patriotic treatments of President Trump and his all star team of American Heroes. When the miscreants in the Judiciary, House, Senate and the leftovers from the Obama administration in the Executive branch who are opposing the Trump agenda are finally removed in 2018, 2020, and beyond by a very ANGRY electorate the WORLD will KNOW that AMERICA is back and will NOT be subservient to ANY country or culture.

    God Bless and protect President Trump, his family, his team of American heroes, and God Bless America and ALL “cold angered” Americans. We cold angered Americans have your collective backs and stand behind you 1000%. We’re winning in spite of the treachery and will NEVER get TIRED of AMERICA winning

        Once you awaken to the treachery practiced by our elected leaders you will NEVER EVER go back to sleep again.

        I became curious as to why the USA was starting to fail in the 1980s. At first I thought it was due to the accumulation of too many laws and regulations. And then, in April of 1994, I saw in a back page article in the Wall Street Journal that our NGOs like PETA, Greenpeace, WWF and others were not only FUNDED by the KGB but RUN by the KGB! Of course no names were named.

        I did not cut out and save the article because I figured it would be ***MAJOR NEWS*** Boy was I ever wrong. I never saw another mention of it or the US government move on ANY organization in the USA. Heck they never even went after I. F. Stone who was openly pissing and moaning about losing his funding from the Soviet Union when the Soviet Union collapsed! (Hubby knew the family)

        Since then with the internet available I have become more and more involved and increasingly worried. With the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Paris Accord looming over the USA, I really thought I was witnessing the death of US sovereignty.

        THANK YOU GOD for President Trump!

    on election day, my dad who is a business owner and a staunch Trump supporter became very annoyed with all the Trump supporters reminding him to go vote. Trump carried my TN county with 70% of the vote and all other Republican candidates received 60% with nary a Trump/Pence yard sign or bumper sticker. The electorate did not publicly broadcast their intent, but they were determined and let nothing stop them.

    I believe that the 2018 midterm elections will sweep a great many Dems, RINOs and NeverTrumpers out of office. I am praying especially for Paul Nehlen to oust Paul Ryan in a landslide! I further believe that with the new Congress, the Trump agenda will shift into overdrive.

      Oh, if Paul Nehlen could oust Ryan…I’m now on the same 24/7/365-1/4 campaign that existed when I backed Trump to give him an impetus. If you don’t bring up the name and the issues, most drift off into their La-La-Land directed by the LSM and the Celebrity industry.

      Identify a location where you can make a difference. Treepers and Sundance plus his crew are great at the details. Just start working as this holiday is a great time to encourage love of our country.

      An interesting read (don’t worry, your teen can read it despite the title) is Jay Dyer’s “Esoteric Hollywood: Sex, Cults and Symbols in Film”. SciFi has never been my first choice of how to spend time, but all the family younguns and a few elders find the genre fascinating. This gentleman breaks down the details, which means I might pull some stuff off the shelves to watch when ‘mI not paying attention to TCTH. It might happen. It might happen.

        One thing we did right here in the U.S. is to not become a democracy nor a kingdom. The last election was the lesson of a lifetime. With the massive fraud in California, the “popular vote” that Trump won in 49 of the states, was overcome by one state – California, with twice as many votes for Hillary as for Trump. California has large pockets of liberalism in L.A. and the Bay Area, but overall it’s far from the liberal bastion their election totals showed. Just look at their Republican governors for example. The Electoral College saved us from a step into insanity, or at the very least, a long and contentious recount in California. When you look at the red/blue voting map by county, and compare it to the crime map by county, the higher crime areas match closely to the blue areas. That right there is a very important reason to put a stop to the spread of modern-day liberalism with protected classes, protected spaces, multiple genders, and all the rest of their culture-destroying nonsense.

    Report from the front:
    PDJT’s wrastling tweet has done it. THEY ARE DONE! I have not seen a calmer ‘news day’ across the Internet since Donald Trump came down the staircase. Even the stories about the tweeted GIF are losing steam as the adult people of our great country chime in with basically a ‘So what?” attitude! The ONLY people who think this is any sort of a big deal are the loser MSM clowns and even they are starting to realize that no one is taking their indignant protests seriously. Meanwhile Congress is between a rock and a hard place over healthcare as their bluff has been called and they either have to repeal obozocare or risk losing their jobs. And the best thing yet? …. President Trump will be meeting with Putin next week and nary a whimper out of the ‘russia, russia, russia’ crowd! LOLOL….. Plus there is NO TALK ANYWHERE of collusion or fixing the election because again Trump called them out with the voter verification project and the demonrats are fighting it! They can’t very well condemn Trump on one hand of collusion if they are fighting the audit of the vote! I feel we are WINNING BIGLY on ALL FRONTS!! happy 4th to all mt fellow Treepers and God Bless President Donald J. Trump!

    Having become a cold anger professional over the past two years I know full well the sting, the pain, the betrayal, the lack of all sense of fairness within the legal system and now the sweet, sweet revenge of having an adult for our President. And adults around our President.

    Adults can have fun, grown-ups want to tell everyone else how to live.

    Adults go to work and work, grown-ups have coffee breaks and talk about other people.

    Adults see and smell a rabid rat and kill it, grown-ups capture and release the poor creature.

    Adults love fully knowing no one is promised tomorrow, grown-ups act as if everyday is all about them.

    I love our President and all of the adults around him.

    I love our country, the United States of America.

    I pray for her and you, her citizens, a spectacular celebration of her independence tomorrow.

    Thank You God, for sparing this, our land of liberty.

      Very well done.

      Physical development or time since birth mean nothing. Being an Adult is worlds away from being simply a “grown-up.” If the foundational principle of Right and Wrong does not grow along with the body, then a person is still a child, masquerading as an adult, enjoying the attendant privileges which they claim to merit.

      You could write on that theme.

    They remain absolutely unaware of their own deeply corrupted values.

    Great post Sundance! Thanks and you captured the essence of the patriot “patience” with the crazies among us.

    I also have to tell you and your readers that the last picture of Trump caressing the American flag is what finally tipped me over the edge during the presidential campaign. I’m a west coast guy, so I didn’t know much about Trump but I didn’t “trust” is turnabout on all the issues and wanting to be the Republican candidate. So I kept my hat on not wanting to hang it on any one candidate on the Right. But when I saw that unabashed glee and pride in hugging the American flag, well, when was the last time you saw any politician do something like that?! Never, in my lifetime!

    His ability to break with political correctness and show his love for the “colors” of our country won me over with that picture. Any time the Left questions his abilities or motives, they should show them that picture and walk away.

    Is there any way to have CTH create a rating system for our politicians ? I don’t trust other sites because of hidden agendas, outright lies and dirty political scams. Obviously Maxine would get a 1 and Pence would get a 100, but what about the other ones? It is sooooo difficult to get the truth from anyone except for you guys and Sharyl Attkisson and maybe Hannity. If we started now we would be primed and ready for 2018.
