Kayla's Corner: Looking Forward to Getting Back to Normal in Covington


Aloha, all! And welcome back to the Corner!

Is everyone ready for things to get back to normal? I certainly am! Luckily, most local businesses are opening their establishments back up while taking the necessary precautions to keep us all safe.




These days I've been sitting outside at most places such as the City Pharmacy patio, Tubby Tom's & of course one of my favorites, Amici. All of these are located in Covington, GA. And once I catch word of some live music at the Mystic Grill I'll be rushing to grab a seat on their amazing rooftop lounge overlooking the beautiful Covington Square. Nothing better than some great music, great food & great friends & what a view!





Speaking of a nice view, my lucky self is hitting the beach in a couple of weeks! Everyone's Facebook posts of the Gulf has been making me so jealous! Of course, I will be taking Covid-19 safety precautions while there such as trying to remain a few feet of distance from others & keeping those hands thoroughly washed.


If we keep that up, I believe we can fights this thing off.

Remain positive, you guys. We got this!!!

[Perrin Lovett] - Commencement Under Social Distancing And Civil Unrest

Welcome back, beloved readers. I trust your masks are properly fitted. Last Friday, I had to modify this column in order to account for the ongoing annihilation of the United States. First, about that…

When I wrote, “imagine it nationwide, thrice as intense, maybe with a few heavy bombing runs and some armor on the streets, and you’ll have a good image of a not-too-distant future,” I was not giving instructions nor did I mean the future as in four minutes after I pressed send. Anyway, this is what we get for so many decades of willful decline. What’s happening in Minneapolis, Atlanta, New York, DC, LA, Houston, and most other cities has nothing to do with George Floyd. It is the attempted refutation of civilization and confirmation of what went wrong with the Tower of Babel. It is urban, 4G warfare. Sadly, more will follow.

Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 2020!

Here are a few things that I might do if I were in your shoes and in possession of what I know now. You won’t pay attention to all of this and that’s okay. Everything I mention isn’t appropriate or necessary for everyone. That too is fine.

You’ve done it, and we are proud of you. Most of you, statistically, just graduated from public high schools. Some of you were stuck with a “digital” ceremony while others got to march in person but strictly under Doctor Fauci’s restrictive gaze. Either way, you’re out and that is fantastic. Many of my other columns are about how bad the schools were and are.

But, as predicted by Hall & Oates, the long halls and gray walls have split apart. There is life after high school - though it’s considerably stranger now than it used to be. You lucky young adults are free of the government’s education plantation prison. Here, some bad news - the world has myriad other bullshit schemes just waiting to continue that controlled existence you just escaped. My advice? Don’t fall for them or into them. I recommend a departure from the prevailing anti-culture. 

This is and is not the “monastic option” as set forth by Morris Berman in Twilight of American Culture. It is and is not what John Taylor Gatto and Anthony Esolen have written about young people, education, and society. It is and is not what Neal Boortz devised in 1997 in his Commencement Speech. It is and is not an extension of my 2015 article, Valediction. Valediction means “farewell” or “in parting.” It, of course, stems from the Latin root, vale (buh-bye!), and is the cousin of our adopted word, valedictorian (highest grade in the class). Current valedictorians may or may not be deprived of speeches of their own. With such an introduction, I’ll try to keep mine relatively short and bulleted. Here goes:

  • Keep Faith In God.

  • Get your life out of sync with the rest of the world as soon as possible. Like now. The greatest advice of our column’s namesake, C.F. Floyd.

  • Stay out of debt. All of it. There is no such thing as good usury. This especially applies to evil student usury. Cash.

  • Rethink college. Some are good to great. Most of them are worse than useless. Consider working while learning a trade and independently studying your academic field(s) of interest. Keep it simple, cheap, and logos-based.

  • Work hard for something worthwhile. Whatever you do, make sure it’s honorable and that you enjoy it.

  • Seriously rethink your relationship with what I call The Empire. Almost nothing you’ve been taught about your country is true anymore. America collapsed. The United States is collapsing. Something or some things will remain or emerge. Use your imagination and your wits to fit in or get out.

  • Abandon the popular “culture”. The mainstream is owned and operated by the enemy, for their interests and against yours. This includes television, movies, social media, pornography, drugs (to include most prescriptions), (c)rap, and other facets of the low, garbage anti-culture. You’ll never miss it.

  • GET OUT OF THE CITIES! After this past weekend, this should be self-explanatory.

  • Consider moving somewhere remote. In America or abroad. In a new country, the goal is to blend in so well that natives assume you are one of them. I’m slowly inching towards the hills. If I was young and I moved overseas, my choice(s) would be in Eastern Europe.

  • Diversity + Proximity = War. Find your tribe. All the fluffy things you were told about “inclusion” helped fuel what’s burning our cities. Ali’s “bluebirds and redbirds” again. Yeah, sure, you know an exception. Know too, the rule.

  • Young men: Get in shape. Read everything.

  • Young women: Stay in shape. Be pleasant.

  • All young people: Think, behave, speak, and dress like civilized adults. Know and accept Jesus Christ. Know and hate evil. 

  • Get married young and start a family. Don’t be afraid to start poor. His income, whatever it is, will be enough. She can manage the house, however large or small. Do not obsess over or wait for “the money.” Avoid like the plague anyone who tells you otherwise.

  • Do not be afraid. Fear isn’t natural. Avoid anyone who suggests otherwise.

  • Celebrate the beautiful. The wonderful. In everything.

There’s so much more, but I trust you will find your way bravely and expediently. I may have some more tips along the way. In a few future columns, we may explore a few affairs from some of those incredible and sure to be around in a century Eastern Euro nations. For my part, I relish presenting positive news about decent people who are willing to defend their traditions, about cultures that still actually are. Next week, we’ll celebrate a little of the forgotten (or obscured) history of our former nation. And, should the current events move to the next level, like with B-2 Spirits or something, I suppose I’ll deal with that too. Get out of the cities!

Bess Tuggle's Memoirs of Surviving Children: Memories Between the Pages



My mother is cleaning out her room.  There are SO many levels of “funny” to this, but I’ll try to keep it to the basics.

            When I was little, cleaning my room was a chore that I hated.  HATED!  My room pretty much got the white-glove treatment, and I flunked inspection every time.  EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!  I can’t forget our Pomeranian, Peachy, for calling me out on my chocolate stashes under my bed.  (This deserves a growl here; A LOUD one!)  The dog would steal my candy, then drag her butt across the floors for a week after munching my stash.  We had hardwood floors.  Cleaning them was my job.  Use your imagination.

            Now that my mom’s finally cleaning up her room (I don’t cut her a lot of slack; and I’ve been giving her h-e-double-l every time I try to walk into her room for years) we’re both reliving memories we’ve found from under layers.  I will admit that I’m  impressed with her efforts.  It looks like you can finally WALK through her room!  I saw a FLOOR under there!  Imagine that!  She also repainted her room.  I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m sure it’s -perfect-.  And she was smart enough not to ask me to help with that project.  I can stain and I can seal.  Put a paintbrush in my hand and you have a MESS!    

            My mom gave be a bookshelf. Not that I don’t have a gracious plenty, books and shelves, but I can never have too many of either. 

            I still have to move the rest of my reference books over.  HEAVEN HELP we have a dictionary on a bookcase that I can FIND!  F-Google!!!.  There’s a Thesaurus in easy reach.  Black’s stares at me from the second shelve.  All the classics are within reach…  (Not that they teach them anymore, but I still enjoy reading them)

            It’s the things between the books and pages that bring back the most memories.  I found a couple pictures of my grandparents wedding.  The envelope is legal size, and the postage stamp is 3 cents.  Military yearbooks and elementary school yearbooks.  Old pictures tucked between pages and/or books to keep them safe.  My mother’s Latin book from high school with a newspaper clipping tucked in.  She remembers it.  My “Christmas Books.”  I can tell you every present I’ve bought, and for whom, since the early 90’s.  Most receipts still tucked in.

Then there’s the kid presents.  I have a hot rod of some sort, made with bottle caps and some kind of putty.  There’s a home made ship in a bottle – the ship is drawn on notebook paper and stuck in a tequila bottle, but it’s still a ship in in a bottle.  I found the $100 bill that was given to me as a college graduation joke.  It was supposed to be counterfeit, but it’s not.  It’s just old.  1950 kinda old.  It can pass the ink test at the bank but they won’t except it because it doesn’t have “In God we Trust” printed on it.  (Quick history lesson – it wasn’t until the mid-50’s that “God” was added to our pledge and our money)  Handmade presents that still bring me joy remembering the little fingers that made them.

This was -supposed- to be a quick, easy project, moving books, but it’s nice to slow down and go through things, and remember.

One shelf down.  Two more to go.

TPC Turns Ten Today!



*Ed. note: always avoid alliteration.

Happy Birthday to You 

Happy Birthday to You 

Happy Birthday, Dear Piedmont Chronicles

Happy Birthday to You

Wow, ten years. Hard to believe.

It doesn't seem that long ago in some ways & in others it feels like an eternity. It's funny how time can twist & change before your very eyes like that.

In June of 2010 I was about halfway through a 3 & 1/2 year stint of writing a print column for About Covington to Madison magazine (I would later write a few more columns for the next Publisher). These pieces were mainly about local history & lore, the occasional profile piece, local events & happenings, human interest stuff & even the rare foray into fiction.

While my first print piece was published in Winter of 2009, it wasn't until about a year & a half later (June 1), when I first set up a weblog on a site called Blogger. I'd decided to do this because my monthly columns ended up being kind of popular & I had several folks ask me how they could get a copy. So, after having experimented with a political blog over the previous few years, I decided to set up a page where I could publish these writings on the world wide web.

On that first day, June 1 of 2010, I posted TPC's first four pieces,  a multi-part installment on the 1921 John Williams peon murders - a horrible, dark chapter of our area's history.

For its first couple of years, the online edition of TPC was pretty much strictly for publishing those columns from the aforementioned print publication. Later, especially after I retired the column (the first time) in the summer of 2012, I started to add additional content to The Chronicles.

During these early days, the site probably averaged about a post a month still mainly dealing with just local history, places & events.

It wasn't until March of 2015 that the vision of what would truly become TPC first came into existence. It just felt right, needed even. And as the year progressed that feeling only became reinforced. It was a busy fall & winter road into 2016, and TPC was there to give it the REAL Story at every turn.

2015 was also very important as it saw its first contributing writer, J. Ellis "Da" Millsaps. This publication would not have become what it would later become if this hadn't have happened. There's a reason why Da is the Editor Emeritus of this publication. His friendship, counsel & wisdom is much appreciated.

|||||||

2016 & 2017 continued on much the same arc as the previous year where we were averaging more like a post a week instead of one a month while breaking some big stories & providing some excellent pieces


It was in 2018 that the die was truly cast, however, as local advertising campaigns were begun & a goal was set of averaging more like one post a day (though we've never quite gotten there). It was also in this year that the final, vital piece of the puzzle - the rest of our regular contributing staff - came together. First was my old Terry College (UGA) compatriot, Perrin Lovett, giving us a glimpse of affairs national like no other & then our two wonderful women - Kayla Leasure & Bess Tuggle -  bringing their wealth of talents to the writings of The Chronicles, as well as helping to shape the direction & essence thereof.

And last but not least, the true key to all of this:

You, Dear Reader.

Thank you so much.

###

Here's to the next 10 years!

With a full heart filled of gratitude & love,

[Perrin Lovett] - Minnesota: From Lockdown To Burndown -and- Congratulations To The Class Of COVID-19


Ah, another major rewrite in the interests of providing up-to-date coverage of more current events. This column was originally drafted early, as the secondary title suggests, as a commencement address of sorts to the Corona’d Class of Twenty. I had some good wishes and advice in-store, which honestly, would have been largely ignored. (At eighteen I would not have followed most of what I wrote). Anyway, other things happened and are still unfolding. I’ll hold the graduation thoughts for another time, minus a few cogent points, below, and this: Congratulations, kids! We’re proud of you.

You might have heard about some unpleasantness in the Twin Cities and that such was spreading into other areas and states. Let’s discuss that with a little background:

1913: European communists colluded with American charlatans to create the Federal Reserve System. (Bear with me here). Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) supplanted US Dollars as currency, which by the terms of the FR Act, they are not. This was and is blatantly unconstitutional. The ancient, dead Parchment was amended, however, so as to directly steal money in a necessary scheme to prop up the new and illegal bank, and to wrest from the Several States the last of their input power in Congress. Very few cared then or care now.

1913-1990: Minnesota, to include Minneapolis, has demographics part Scandinavia and part cheese wheel.

1990 - Present: Diversity flows into the State and particularly into Minneapolis and Saint Paul. We are told this is our greatest strength. (I'm getting there...)

2009: Special outsider activist and attorney Jacob Frey moves to Minneapolis from the Coastal East with the intention of becoming Mayor and assisting with the, uh, transformation.

2018: Frey was sworn in as Mayor. 

2010-2020(?): At some point within the past few years, Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and local black resident George Floyd worked together at a Minneapolis Latino nightclub. They had to know each other. This is far from the only anomaly in this episode.

May (-June?) 2020: Police responded to a complaint that Floyd allegedly passed a counterfeit $20 bill at a local delicatessen. As we know, any and all “real” FRNs are counterfeit by their nature. The standard for proving malicious use of a counterfeit counterfeit is to show the suspect knew the bill was fake and intended to use it anyway. This is a relatively high standard and difficult to prove in court. Most such cases are dropped or pled down. In this case, Officer Chauvin responded along with at least three other officers, and as you’ve likely seen in the video, killed the unarmed, handcuffed, and seemingly compliant Floyd in what might best be described as a murder.

The four officers were rapidly fired amid an outrage. Local blacks, blacks in other areas, and many other people (Yours Truly included, maybe even you) are naturally incensed regarding the matter. However, things quickly become (more) violent and political.

Nation-healing interloper Frey plays all sides. On the one hand, he sues for peace while threatening military action in the event of (more) violence. On the other, he suggested the police would not have killed a white person under similar circumstances. He is either unaware of or chose to forget about Justine Ruszczyk, white, and shot dead by the Minneapolis police in 2017 when they responded to her 911 call. Your memory is okay: there were no White Lives Matter protests during the summer of 2017. Frey and other people continue to say more stupid things.

All hell breaks loose. Rioting in the Twin Cities makes international headlines. Violence spreads to other states. The National Guard is called in. Frey stokes. Trump Tweets. Some fool threatens to bring violence to the suburbs. (Some people in some of the burbs are waiting on him).

In a scene straight from the pages of Charles Sheehan-Miles’s novel Republic, a CNN crew broadcasts their own direct encounter with police brutality. They are arrested though later released. Ex-Officer Cauvin is then arrested. Real mobs gather around his house, facing off against his former co-workers, after some very funny business with a reporter and a rent-a-mob.

The protests, which look a lot like civil unrest or civil war, spread to New York, LA, Louisville, KY, Columbus, OH, et cetera.

That’s where we stood when I last checked Friday afternoon. In a few weeks, some of the same “protesters” who torched the Target, the AutoZone, the bank, and the liquor store will loudly yell about the lack of cheap merchandise, auto parts, cash, and Ripple in the neighborhood. There is no justice, really.

We’ve seen this before - truly shocking attacks that represent real injustice. However, agendas lurk everywhere, sensationalizing certain cases at the expense of others. And, let’s not bring in statistics about crime, police brutality, or who commits either against whom. Nobody likes numbers and charts.

Just as you’ve gotten used to wearing the fear masks, you might get used to this sort of nightly spectacle. Imagine it nationwide, thrice as intense, maybe with a few heavy bombing runs and some armor on the streets, and you’ll have a good mental image of a possible not-too-distant future. We hope for the best nonetheless.

Graduates, a little advice: 1) GET OUT OF THE CITIES! 2) Really consider moving somewhere remote, either here or abroad. You didn’t create this mess and you need not suffer the failures and stupidity of others. 3) Strongly consider what the great Ali once said about “bluebirds and redbirds.” 4) Develop a healthy distrust of governments and their cronies (especially international banksters).


Soon, hopefully, I’ll have the rest of the advice that I probably would not have heeded myself. And, soon and hopefully, we’ll have this episode in societal collapse behind us. ACAB? Some are, all are not; it’s the same with you, me, us, and them. Let’s not lose sight of the real challenge of our time: I saw plenty of masks but little social distancing in the riot news footage. We can do better. Zoomers, we're looking (proudly) at you.

[Bess Tuggle] - IMHO, The Week in Review: Welcome Back #148; More Concerns w/ Newton Co BOC



I’d like to start with a moment of silence for all that have given their -all- for our country. “Thank you” is not a worthy word for your service. There really isn’t a word to describe it. The best I can do is bow my head in respect to honor the best of our best.

WELCOME BACK #148!!! And THANK YOU for your service! Again, no words can describe my gratitude and respect.

There’s really not a whole lot left new to review, IMHO,

Covington’s 4th of July fest has been moved September 6th. Labor Day weekend. Be there, or be square! (I know that’s lame, but sometimes I can’t help it)

Layla Zon has been appointed to replace Sammy Ozburn as a Superior Court Judge. I don’t know how this happened. (In my best Forest Gump impression) That’s all I have to say about that.

The whopper of the week goes to our dear Newton County Commissioners! As our property taxes go up, they’re giving Lidl a $200,000 break in permitting and review fees. I WANT THAT DEAL!!! It doesn’t even stop there. Over the course of 9 years Lidl get’s to enjoy a tax-abatement deal. Taxes will be abated or reduced. For real property, the tax valuation will start at 5% in year one moving up to 90% in year nine. I’m more than willing to bet $1.00 (signed) that it will change names/company organizations before those “benefits” run out.

And I hope we all go out and vote.

[Perrin Lovett] - Breaking The Hammer: Fables Of The Paper Eagle

Greetings! Another week and more affairs, some pertaining to the wider world, in that uniquely American way. Those of you who spent the weekend fellating the current “heroes” probably won’t understand or like the following. Tough. However, I’m proud to say that you might be compensated when a “hero” visits you in person before too long - gun in one hand, syringe in the other! 


There’s so much happening with homeschooling and the death of the public schools that I almost ran with that. (Dead schools, dead horse, I know). But, the CDC has effectively recommended disbanding the “schools.” For once, I agree with the CDC! 


Also, I had to alter this column slightly when some brand new (decades-old) news broke over the weekend. I did so. Sometimes it’s hard to write a national affairs column about a nation that died around the time I was born - at least, with a straight face. While the original main body, below, concerns the ongoing collapse of the US Empire overseas, there is a domestic story to tell first.


Back in 1969, the residents of Tribeca noticed a new construction site at 33 Thomas Street, a phenomenon not unheard of in Manhattan. By 1974, the new building was finished and open for business; an ugly 33-story tower at home among many others. This one was different. People noticed, though for years they said nothing, that the building had no windows. Blank concrete walls rose to the sky, topped by a bunch of antennas. After initially accepting the cover story that the odd structure was only an AT&T transfer station - which it was and is, in part - the truth emerged: it was (and is) also an NSA listening post.


I know, I know, the blind homers of C-town don’t care ‘bout no Yankee city. And you don’t have to, a similar post in downtown Atlanta being much closer. While they still serve various purposes, these facilities have become somewhat obsolete - being replaced by those personal spy devices that you’re reading this on at the moment. 


The NSA itself, born in 1952 out of other nefarious government programs, was long the subject of controversy - not about what it did, but rather, about the tin-foil nuts who suggested it was real. As recently as thirty years ago, the existence of the agency was deemed a crank conspiracy theory. (I’ve come to accept “conspiracy theory” as synonymous with “hard fact.”) As the years passed, other programs were mentioned: Carnivore, Echelon, DCS1000, Boundless Informant, Galileo, FISA, etc. I remember discussing some of these, back in the day, with MB - back when we thought something bad was going to happen to America. Ah, the naivety of youth.


There is a popular, progressive semantic system for handling any such claims when they surface: 1) It doesn’t exist; crazy conspiracy theory; 2) It might exist, but you’re still crazy; 3) Okay, it exists, but it’s for the better, and 4) Hey! Look over there! 


With all of this in mind, how is the revelation about Obama’s “Hammer” in any way new or surprising? I’d be surprised if he hadn’t built it, a mere improvement on and expansion of what his predecessors conjured. My question is: What will we do about it? The short answer is “nothing.” Nobody in the government cares, this being their baby. The media is kicking around between numbers two and four, above. There are no white hats, nor sealed military indictments. The usual suspects smugly chuckle. The people - fat, stupid, and lazy - step and fetch while wearing masks. 


The Empire is really only good for three things: lying, destroying, and controlling. It keeps getting its way at home because of declining IQs, the subsumption of Americans in Amerika, the masked hoax, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. But overseas, it is beginning to feel the hard bite of reality. Heck, even now, 


The Empire Collapses!


Orange Man wants to nuke something - maybe some hapless stretch of desert or an innocent island. A live detonation would confirm or deny what we’ve been getting for decades from subcritical computer runs. Of course, they could just lie about the results, the way they lie about everything else. This proposed testing would require using at least one atomic device, and the truth is that our supply is a little short. My guess is that only about ten percent of the Empire’s nuclear arsenal is operational. The lapdogs subtly confirm this with their boasts about soon being able to produce 40, 60, 80 triggers per year (they call them “pits”). Tritium requires refreshment and that requires technical know-how. That, we no longer have.


Russia: Ever since the fathers of the neocons crawled out of the Trotskyite purge, they have hated Russia with a passion. War with the Big Bear is their eternal pipe dream. The fact that a dozen Pentagram simulations and RAND Corp. scenarios say that this would be suicidal does not deter these idiots as they are fact-proof. For funsies, compare the SU-57 to the F-35 or any other US design. This is like comparing a real, functional fifth-generation fighter to a problem-plagued clump of scrap aluminum fueled by excuses and deflections. Then, repeat that comparison across the full spectrum of weaponry while remembering that the Ruskies don’t brook transvestites, callous busybody judges, or SJWs.


China: China has few historical qualms with the Empire. They were our alley against the Japanese after FDR decided to make an enemy out of the Japanese. But, China is not Japan and this isn’t 1941. Repeat the Russia assessment, minus the overkill nuclear potential. Again, the morons on the western banks of the Potomac know they cannot win a war with China. China knows this and is beginning to act like it. Why the rapid removal of aircraft from Guam last month? Why the redirection of the Seventh Fleet? Something is going on in the western Pacific. It’s generally called “contraction.”


Iran: When the people of Iran threw off the monarchy the CIA had imposed on them, they earned the ire of the neo-nuts and their kin in Israel. Lie after sanction after sanction after covert operation after lie followed. In January, the world learned something about Iran that the few in the know suspected and that anyone moderately schooled in Persian history should have: Iran now has regional parity with the Empire. Years of sanctions forced them to innovate and to call on Russia and China. The result: murder their diplomat by drone and they will utterly destroy your drone warfare capabilities. Overnight, their ballistic missiles joined the top-tier. Any bets on their cruise, anti-ship, or anti-aircraft batteries?


Venezuela: Only Washington could be so arrogant and stupid as to want a war with a poor country currently self-destructing. They tried a naval maneuver last year, only to be checked by one lone Russian missile cruiser (of the kind that quelled the earlier Syrian expedition). Then, came the pathetic, B-movie, Bay of Pigs 2.0, which MB, Da, and I could have pulled off better. If the goal was to amuse Maduro to the point of tears, then “mission accomplished.” Orange Man said something stupid about the affair even as his handlers denied involvement. That might have been his “super-duper” line, but again, he has so many. PS: It’s small, but the FANB’s defensive capability might surprise as Iran did.


The Rest: The Empire temporarily overran and subdued Panama back in 1989. For their part, the Panamanians were so used to corruption and terror that they barely noticed the Marines. A few years before that, the 82nd Airborne and the entirety of the Special Forces Command somehow managed to defeat the superpower that was Grenada, overcoming both the waves of the Caribbean and two Cubans armed with slingshots. Those two exceptional exceptions aside, the Empire hasn’t won a war, without massive Soviet assistance, in over 100 years. This century, despite perpetual deployment, they have demonstrated that they simply cannot win, no matter how poorly armed, equipped, organized, or fed the opponent. 


And, the wars of the last 20-30 years have been against third-rate countries and/or CIA-created non-groups. They can kill and displace millions of poor people. They can waste trillions of dollars. But, they can’t win, unless winning is defined as pouring money on the grifter commercial banks. Running out of options and knowing the score, the fools become desperate - desperate enough to contemplate war with countries that can fight back, fend off, or even vanquish a dying superpower. I don’t think - hey, the oil tankers made it - that Venezuela is on the table. However, some combination of Russia, China, and Iran is. There will be at least one more foreign war. The Empire will lose, embarrassingly, and be forced into further retreat. Then comes the unpleasant but, seemingly - I guess, necessary actions of “2033.” The good news, there and then, is that the same RAND models see no means for an Imperial victory on that front either. 



The Hammer will break on the anvil.
