I’m new here…

Great format, sub stack. I’ve read only yeah right right here. Yes ma’am gonna have an x-ray on. Do you need to have it? Yeah I was good since it’s her one article here by Steve Schmidt that he just wrote on the January 6 select committee final hearing.

Steve Schmidt has got to be one of the most articulate and elegant writers on political affairs that I have encountered. This article knocked it out of the park for me.

This article presents a situation that engenders both hope and fear. People of good will stood up and called out the evil among us. What hope this gives me! I feared and still fear that their voices would be silenced. Those who sponsored and promoted this kind of power grab are capable of violently enforcing a new power structure in this nation. A power structure that will crush the innocent, the earnest seekers of the means to feed their families, educate their children, and live a peaceful, safe life - the ordinary Americans. It almost happened in Germany when fascism nearly crushed whole cultures.

We must heed the warnings that Steve Schmidt and those like him who see the imminent risk presented by our native born American oligarchs. We don’t have to give up our beliefs about religion or how the country should be run, but we must protect the rights of all to prosper without the threat of the greedy, the power hungry destroying our democracy.

Great job, Mr. Schmidt!

It must have been hard to build such a patronizing app

Substack is fine. Some content is engaging, some isn’t. It’s a standard newsletter platform.

I was delighted to have an app, as my life is busy and the constant flood of content into my inbox often feels overwhelming. Sometimes I like an idea or a writer so much that I want to support them by subscribing EVEN IF I’M NOT INTERESTED IN READING EVERY SINGLE POST. Substack doesn’t understand this. If they decide you’re not opening the app often enough, they will automatically switch on email newsletters for everything. You can not opt out, only delay the onslaught a bit by signing in and confirming, again, that you do not want all those emails. But if life gets busy and you’re not on the app enough for Substack’s liking — prepare for the emails to return.

I’ve unsubscribed from every list and won’t subscribe to any more, though I’ve got a couple of annual subscriptions to see through. Writers: this platform is likely to annoy your readers right off your lists, and actively discourages people signing up for paid subscriptions just to show support. Readers: you’ll never get these people out of your inbox. They override your notification settings on your behalf about once a month. (And send another email to let you know they’ve done so!)

Reading the Truth in American News is hard to find

Even before Drudge appeared on the sene it was a challenge to find honest journalism and I don’t mean that they needed to be in agreement with my perceptions, just honest.

And yes, if they “Sold Out” as on the case of “ The Drudge Report” then I pack up my time and seek out new journalists! Frustrating but necessary if I am determined to be well educated & informed.

If I find a news source that is anything but honest then I move on ( this happened quite frequently ). But I have been diligent and have found a small group of educators aka journalists “because” that’s what journalism does - it educates & informs so that I can make informed decisions. And so I thank all of you who are true to your profession.

This latest article by Emerald Robinson is a perfect example; not that I already lost trust in Lutz but I just wasn’t aware of so much in her latest writing of him and his antics.

This helps me confirm my suspicions and complete my life long passion for the truth on people & subjects.

So to that end, I want to say “Thank You” Emerald Robinson for using my time wisely. Since I have precious little of it to source my providers, it’s a confirmation that my new subscription to you has already confirmed my investment in this endeavor has paid in dividends yet again.

Please continue…..
