Pinned toot

So, @DanielBarron and @KathyMicale, and you too @jp, I'm hoping to build a little real conversation here, and about one of my top most favorite we won 2016, and the moment I really knew - from the data! - that we had.

Here's one of my absolute favorite charts I drew up and published back then. If you'd be so kind as to respond, really in any way, I'd be so grateful.

I believe this kind of analysis will truly matter in 2020, again.

Your thoughts?

Hello all. We've commenced marching toward victory here at And what is that victory? Nothing less than retaking the House, extending our hold on the Senate and reelecting POTUS in 2020. There will be many battles along the way. Every single one of them will DEMAND social media reach. Joyful confidence on the path to all out, unqualified victory is required.

Thank goodness for us , we now have @jp. He is the social media leader we have needed.

Sadly, my friends, I am about to discontinue my postings here. If you still wish to follow me, @ThyConsigliori is my twitter hand.

@Pasquale I have Samuel B. Griffith's version. It does have some good cross-referencing to previous strategists. Enjoying your presentation though.

And if you're new to our studies, do head over to @WarForAmerica21 for an easy to use digital table of contents to pick up on all previous explorations. And of course, be sure to buy Minford's extraordinary translation, here:

If we're going to , we must heal America's weakness. If we're going to win the , we must reject the false wisdom of the pseudo-wise. But before we can do that, we must accept our diagnosis, and commence our healing treatment.

If you don't, if you allow yourself to remain weak, then bad guys will discourage and depress you and then, attacking with ease, take everything you've got. They'll steal your entire life from you. It is this real, and it is this personal. It's not just business, either.

Let's go tactical. If you're tired, rest. Low spirited? Refresh yourself, body and soul. Weak? Eat well, light exercise and plenty of self-care. Find a good personal trainer who doesn't push you too hard. Poor? Work, earn, spend less, save, invest, stop being poor.

If any of you A-aspiring students in the front row are seeking heretofore-not-announced bonus points, a short essay on the connection here to Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching chapter 67 would go a long way. Check it out. What a phrase. The powerlessness of the wise. Or...the pseudo-wise!

Note the following true wisdom. "This even the wisest will be powerless to mend." Ah. Thank you Master . When you're tired, dispirited, weak and poor, you can't do diddly when the attack comes. Game over. All your cool pseudo-wisdom will avail you nothing but defeat.

Not getting into the endless, glorious details, consider, he lost his eldest son by following this stupid idea. When you allow your enemies their access to you, they sow discord and disarray, and then wait for your moment of weakness to attack.

Let's introduce a new character into our studies. Don Vito Corleone. I can't start really talking about him, the greatest man in fictional history and all as he is, etc. Sadly, his greatest stupidity is wrongly his most often quoted maxim, keep your enemies close.

So let's just use 'bad guys' for the moment. 'Then the bad guys will exploit the disarray and attack.' Here's another way to express this. The bad guys always live by the law, kick 'em when they're down. And our man Saul Alinsky teaches us how to get 'em down, first, then kick.

If Master Minford and I were debating, I might have proposed the term - which I'm sure he'd rightly have rejected - "evil war lords." Hell, I might have argued for scum sucking bad guys. Or cartel lords, maybe. How about totalitarian dictators? Who are the worst of the worst?

A technical point. I'm not sure I agree with the term "feudal lords" as if that were a bad thing. I won't get into medieval historiography and its current, judgmental leanings, but maybe you get the idea. I'm not sure the feudal lords were as bad as they're currently judged.

Are you chilled? Are you terrified? If not, then you're not paying proper attention. You'll need to stay after class and write on the chalk board, 100 times, I will try to be properly afraid.

John Minford, 2:5 (preceded by verse 4) "4-If men are tired, morale low, strength exhausted, treasure spent,

5-then the feudal lords will exploit the disarray and attack. This even the wisest will be powerless to mend."

And that is EXACTLY where we'll pick up tomorrow. Class dismissed. But please, review some of the previous lessons over at @WarForAmerica21 to bve sure you're caught up, and...

Our movement too, is tired. We're both new and old at the same time. Consider the Tea Party which was our immediate forebear. How much energy did it have in 2010? And then, cycle after cycle, The Swamp ate up everyone we sent in, no matter how large our victory.

Cutting finally to the chase, we, America, we're exhausted to the point of cultural collapse. We have no patience with each other and couldn't debate our way out of a wet but respectful bag. We just fight, fight, fight, spending more and more of our limited energy.
