[Perrin Lovett] - As National Affairs-ish as it gets: Bombings, Borders, and Baldwin

We start this week’s TPC column, as is wise for the week after Easter - or any other time, with an ever-timely quote from our Lord and Savior:

If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

– John 15:18-19 (KJV).

The hate was on display Easter Sunday. Over 200 people died and around 500 were injured during a series of bombing terror attacks, mostly against Christians worshiping at Sunday Mass, in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The massacre was the work of right-wing, alt-right, white supremacists. Just kidding. It was Muslim terrorists, once more bringing that special “peace” unto the Kafir. Specifically, the organization responsible was the National Thowheeth Jama’aith (NJT). The outfit is well known to authorities and this particular attack was suspected ten days in advance.

As I noted the other day, and as I alluded to concerning Notre Dame, these attacks are just too damned weak. The world and its dark master simply cannot prevail against Us. Of that, We are assured. Still, there are worldly issues to consider. To wit:

We eagerly await Ben Shapiro’s wit and wisdom regarding the same. “This attack is a strike against the Judeo-Christian™ values that made Sri Lanka what it is today. PROMOCODE #EasterBomb.” Will Jacinda Ardern pretend to be Catholic in “solidarity” with the victims? We know she would gladly disarm them were they Kiwis. Perhaps The Donald will have the AFT ban church pews, known to “bump” the rate of Mass attendance. Could the average 92-IQ Amerikan even locate Sri Lanka on a globe?

Colombo is roughly 9,440 miles away from Covington - straight up the East coast, over Eastern Greenland, and across the depth of Asia. In terms of Astronomical Units, they’re practically in the same place. The culture is a little different, than that of either Newton County or the United States, but there are some disturbing similarities to recognize.

Following the Christchurch false flag operation, I mentioned that men should pay attention to these sort of atrocities as there will be a lot more of them. (This incident(s) alone proved my point). It’s important to look at the circumstances in some situations even if they don’t occur in your backyard. The maxim du jour: diversity + proximity = war. What happened in Colombo is a prime example. For further reference, see just about any conflict in history (Rome, Rwanda, Yugoslavia, etc.).

Sri Lanka has some 22 million residents, composed of nine primary ethnic groups, all crammed into an area a little smaller than South Carolina. There are three official languages with several others spoken by various tribes. Buddhists are the religious majority, though Hindus, Mohammedans (mostly Sunni), and Christians (mostly Roman Catholics) constitute major minorities. In other words, Sri Lanka, diversity rate-wise, more resembles the America of 2019 than that of 1959. Just saying.

And, America looks less and less 1950s-ish with every passing day as between 2,000 and 100,000,000 illegal invaders freely cross our Southern border every hour. It’s like we need a wall or something. Maybe our fearless President should declare a national emergency? At any rate, we finally have our first notable, namable arrest in the border crisis.

Pedro has papers, seres queridos. Picture looted from something called “Wikipedia.” You’ve heard?

That’s right! No less than the FBI stepped in and detained the first arriving illegal they spotted. Off to GITMO with him, per Trump’s declaration. Kidding again. They arrested an American patriot, one Larry Hopkins, a 69-year-old alleged felon in possession of a firearm. I understand they feared he might use it to do the job the President, Congress, the FBI, the military, and the Border Patrol won’t or can’t. Fitting.

Even with a national emergency (one with NO emergency action), we can’t halt the migratory flow. But we can persecute our own. Nancy and AOC want to let felons vote. Why can’t they have guns? Especially if they use them to protect the country? No felon is illegal. Hopkins is merely another unaccompanied “minor” and “refugee,” albeit one of the documented variety. I hope they release him within 20 days. He needs sanctuary.

Just in case you’re wondering, one of the reasons we have the Second Amendment is the predictable chance that the government goes off the rails, hindering, rather than defending freedom. That sounds a little legal, a bit political so let’s us close this column with a 2020 GREAT QUADRENNIAL BLACK MASS (Presidential Election) Update:

Spurred on by the 3,700 other candidates, Alec Baldwin announced his bid to become the 2020 Democratic Party nominee! Well, he really didn’t but we can imagine the fun if he did.

Done-to-death Pic by Showbiz 411/SNL.

It would make sense. Follow the extremely loose and overblown syllogistic reasoning (if any):

  • Baldwin has ample experience portraying a President on SNL;

  • The Mueller Report like totally proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Mueller wasted two years proving shadows doubt;

  • NJT approves of arresting American patriots;

  • Trump made remarks about generic crude women to a teevee guy in private (was recorded); Baldwin made crude remarks to his daughter on the telephone (also recorded); and

  • The Democrats might as well have the kitchen sink in the race … ERGO,

  • The column’s over. Come back later.

[Bess Tuggle] - Memoirs of Surviving Children: The (mis) Adventures of Scouting & Camping

Thing 1 was kidnapped once.  He was kidnapped by Boy Scouts of America in the first grade.   They were greedy, too.  They ended up kidnapping the whole family.

Scouting is a fun way to grow up.  Family oriented, educational and a WHOLE lot of camping.

Multiple camping trips were planned throughout the year.  We tried to accommodate everyone’s needs.  Close trips for families with very young or disabled children, cheap trips for those with more than one child (once you have more than one you’re perpetually broke) and site seeing trips for those more adventurous with the means and transportation to get there.

One of the requirements for each camping trip was that one trained leader had to attend.  I don’t remember what year it was that I became the Wolf Den leader (and stayed there for time out of mind), but with a lot of kids and a flexible work schedule I became “volun-told” for many of them. 

We did primitive camping (for those that don’t know, that means NO facilities, and yes – bears DO *%&# in the woods), full facility camping and pretty much everything in between.  Most of our trips were to State Parks, but there were many others – including my own yard.

My memory is currently stuck on camping at Amicalola Falls State Park.  It’s a beautiful place.  We ended up in primitive camping, but that was part of the adventure.

Image result for amicalola state park

It had rained, so everything was a muddy mess.  Our camp site was down a steep, muddy, hill and all gear had to be carried down it.  It turned out it was easier to sit on your rear with a load and –slide- down the hill.  We had one leader, and I have pictures to prove it, that carried a twin size mattress down the mud slope and stuffed it in his pup-tent because he was NOT going to sleep on the ground, much to the amusement of the rest of us.  The kids turned the path into a mud slide and had a –wonderful- time, especially knowing they couldn’t take a bath and had to wash off in the creek.

I pitched our tent next to a creek.  That was my first mistake.  There’s something about the sound of running water during the night, especially knowing that the only facilities was the closest tree…  The boys’ pitched their tents around mine like little mushrooms.  A campfire was built, and we were all too tired to do much else than go to sleep with the sun.

The next morning everyone got up, maybe not well-refreshed, but up and planned the events for the day.  The main attraction was the lodge at the top of a very –long- -steep- hill.

Everyone loaded up.  As I had the only long bed truck I ended up with a bunch of the kids.  Fifteen to be exact, all loaded in the back of my truck.  There’s a reason I remember that number.

Up the hill we went, strictly observing the 10mph speed limit, and finally made it to the top.  There was the lodge.  Low and behold (let the angels sing amid a cloud of bright light), there was a sign that made my heart leap with joy.  “Public Restroom.”

Out of the truck I jumped.  The rest of the adults/leaders could deal with the kids for a minute or two, but I bee-lined it to the bathroom.  Once out, I was met by a frightening sight.  Our whole group was gathered at the door, all were pointing at ME, and there was a park ranger leading the pack.

I got busted.

Much to my amazement, all State rules of the road apply in State Parks.  –I- didn’t know that, but the ensuing lecture taught me a lot.  Did you know that it’s against the law to transport children in the bed of a pickup?  Even in a State Park?  I sure didn’t, and that ranger put the fear of losing my license into me.

Fifteen tickets for no seat belts.  Fifteen tickets for child endangerment.  To add insult to injury, one big ticket for unsecured load.

Following a long lecture, which I’m sure the ranger enjoyed thoroughly, she let me off with a warning.  After that, we did our site-seeing and started a caravan to get all the kids back down to camp.  All in seat belts.  It took several trips, but we all made it back to base camp –legally-.

The rest of our camping trip was spent hiking, site seeing, playing games, roasting marshmallows over a fire and just a good time overall.  

My old, white truck was never the same after that.  Three of us lunched our transmissions on that long, steep hill.

The Sunday Edition, 4/21/19: TPC - For the Birds; Review of Latest #COV Financials; G-Day - How 'Bout Them Dawgs!

Happy Sunday, Good People, & Happy Easter! He is Risen!

Man, did we get some rain the last couple of days, especially on Friday as most places in & around the GA Piedmont got at least 3 inches of rain with reports of some spots getting 5, 6 or more. That much rain & there's bound to be issues. And tell ya' what, the Yellow River got pretty darn high, didn't it?

With the assistance of Mother Nature, Old Man River can always bow his neck. Based on reports & pictures, the mobile home/RV park at the Access Rd got hit hard as well, with several deeply submerged in the river's cresting waters. 

Bird Watching with The Alibug 

As some of you probably already know, we have a photographer extraordinaire here in our neck of the woods, the one & only Mrs. Alisa S. Johnson Brown. The former WGFS radio host specializes in nature shots, and birds in particular. 

After admiring her work for many years & having a desiring to share it here at The Chronicles, I finally got around to asking her about it & she said yes! That made me very happy! Moving forward, expect at least a bird pic or two per week, and most of these will be dedicated posts. And folks, in this crazy, rough & tumble world in which we live, there ain't much that can calm my mind like these bird pictures! They're very special to me, and I hope you good folks will enjoy them just as much as I do!


|||||||


This is the first bird I saw on this beautiful Easter Sunday. There seems to be something symbolic about that blood-red chest because when I saw it, I instantly thought about our Saviour, pinned to a cross by nails. What incredible torture that must have been!! Even as He bled, Jesus asked his Father to forgive those crucifying Him. He loved us enough to die a terrible death for me and you and He loved us ALL! That's important!
Because of a remarkable plan God had for his Son, Jesus is with us today and all of our tomorrows, caring for us in every way! And because "...not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it." (Matt10:29), can you even imagine how much MORE He loves you and me.
"What wondrous love is this, Oh, my soul...Oh, my soul!"
Have a beautiful day.
and LOVE EVERYBODY!
🌼🐞💐🐦🦋🌷Happy Easter!🌷🦋🐦💐🐞🌼

City of Covington Financials 




I'm several hours worth of research into the latest audited numbers for the home city for FY 2018. Look for a dedicated post later this week with most of the ins & outs; however, to get the full REAL picture, you'll have to track down this week's print edition which will - unlike the online version - have the Top-20 salaries of the city's payroll (no names will be printed - only job titles).

In the meantime, I'll give you the TL;DR version/title - "Not Looking Good..." In addition to being $10 million in debt, Covington shattered its previous record for expenditures by almost $5 million. Also, 'General Government Spending' increased a concerning 18% this past year, the highest, I believe, on record. Much more to come, be sure to tune back in. 


G-Day: Red vs. Black; Georgia Wins! 



More specifically, Team Red (1st-string offense; 2nd-team D) defeated Team Black 22-17 in front of an announced crowd of 52,640 (several accounts agree it was more like 40-45K). The big news is this - our defense, both 1st & 2nd string, looks like the absolute truth! And that's a good thing, especially the increased depth, which really could be pointed to as the main culprit of our two season-ending losses to 'Bama.

As has become a tradition at G-Day over the years, whispers of a possible QB controversy. And I must say, young Stetson Bennett IV did look impressive, but let's not kid ourselves - despite having an underwhelming day, Fromm is obviously our guy. 


The home county was well represented yesterday. Erik Stokes scored the first points of the scrimmage on a 39-yd Pick-6 & JJ Holloman clearly proved that he is THE #1 WR for the Dawgs & had a dandy of a touchdown catch. And speaking of receivers, it looks like we may have added a new one that should contribute right off the bat - Matt Landers might be in our starting lineup come August. He's that good, not to mention the fact that he can throw the ball, too, as he threw a real beauty for a TD.

All in all, it confirmed, for me, that this is probably the most talented team we've had in the Kirby Smart era. That's exciting! But the biggest plus was the fact that it looks like we didn't have any injuries!

GO DAWGS! 

Alright, gang, that's all I've got for this one. Looking like a big week here at TPC, so check back often. As always, we greatly appreciate you reading.

The TPC Report, Week of 4/20: It's (finally) Mueller Time; the People's Republic of Peachtree City

By MB McCart, Editor 

NATIONAL

Well, folks, it finally got released. The redacted version of the Mueller report. As several others commented, I cannot begin to say how impressed I was that several media outlets had already read, disseminated & published their findings on the almost 500-page document literally within an hour or so of it being released. Wow!

As for myself, I've scanned most all of it & have seriously read, so far, about a 1/5th of it.

In many ways this just confirmed what you were already believing. If a Trump fan - total vindication; a Trump hater, on the other hand, is going to think this proves there were improper things going on. Who's right? Really, who cares...

NY Post


It is what it is but as is often the case, the truth is somewhere in between the two extremes, though I believe it's fairly apparent that the whole concept of a "Nothing Burger" was a pretty apt description. And all those folks who've been convicted? It was all for non-Russia stuff with the exception of Flynn, who basically just made an honest mistake but then got crucified for it.

And let's not forget, all of this was built on a lie - the infamous Steele dossier that was paid for by the DNC & the Clinton campaign, and let's also not forget that it was helped along by those in the intelligence community looking for an "insurance policy."

But, before all of that, let's also not forget that all of this purportedly started with Russian groups creating Facebook pages & groups while spending approx. $100K & that Clinton campaign Chair John Podesta was an idiot & had his email hacked. 


The nerve of Russia, right? If they're going to do stuff like that, they should do it like the good ole US of A, CIA-style - actually do it in person. Get some boots on the ground. Maybe kill some folks. 


The People's Republic of Peachtree City 

Peachtree City, presumably inspired by members of the Georgia General Assembly desiring to do the same thing, decided they would be the ones to finally abolish the 1st Amendment once & for all. From Jessica Szilagyi writing over at Georgia Pol: 

The city officials in the People’s Republic of Peachtree City are slated to vote on a new ordinance Thursday that seeks to quell free speech  by giving city employees and city council members the ability to sue citizens who “defame” them on social media or in new stories….all at the city’s expense. 
The proposed ordinance reads “Whereas in the normal execution of their duties, elected and appointed officials and employees of the city may be subject to unwarranted public defamation when formal complaints are unwarranted and … the City Council deems it in the best interest of the city to indemnify, defend and protect city elected and appointed officials … Peachtree City shall fund legal action on the part of any elected official, appointed official, or employee … who has been defamed in a public media outlet.”
But wait! There’s more.
The city would be awarded, per the proposed ordinance, its legal expenses and damages if it prevails in court.  And the city attorney would be paid 20% more than the usual city attorney retainer to file the lawsuit. (The Citizen has some other background and some commentary to the poor fools who work for the city and took a public stance on this proposal for all of us to ridicule.) 
If the Council approves this measure, it would be the first of its kind in the state of Georgia.

And how did it turn out? 

Also from Jessica, from last night: 

Citizens prevail in Peachtree City, Georgia. The Anti-First Amendment ordinance to allow the city to pay for council members to sue citizens and the media for speaking out was denied this evening.

Peachtree City, GA - City Government had to tuck their tails and back down after more than 2 hours of public comment.

Hopefully, the citizens will also deny any re-Election efforts by any of the supporters of the ordinance. They have proven they are unfit for
public office. 

And there we have it.

News of Newton & C-town will have to wait until this weekend. Look for a big, juicy Sunday edition. Okay for now, friends, 'til next time.

Keeping an Eye on Covington

She has her finger on the pulse of the home county like no other & is always "keeping an eye on Covington." A beautiful lady, inside & out, it is The Chronicles' true privilege to have her talents as part of our team. 

[Perrin Lovett] - A Week of Miracles: Paris Out of the Ashes; Tiger Roars Again at Augusta & Perrin Storms C-Town

This column addresses three topics of great importance, in reverse chronological order. The originally intended subject comes last, after two of perhaps greater relevance and general interest. This is good stuff (great, even); read on:

International Desk: Only the Building Burned. The Church is Adamant, the French Spirit Indomitable.

You’ve heard the news. The world knows. Paris’s landmark, 850-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral suffered extensive fire damage on Monday, April 15th.

I learned of the tragedy while, of all things, leading a discussion en Français with a group of talented young people. My first thought was, “that’s a maintenance accident!” Thus I thought because the inferno was emanating from the roof and attic. And, I’ve seen this exact scenario before in Athens, Georgia, of all places.

On a summer day in 1995, I traversed North Campus. Smoke I smelled and then saw. Brooks Hall, then home to the Terry College of Business (the same MB goes on about) was burning. Bad. They had been conducting roof renovations and some jackleg ignited the attic whilst welding. We lost two floors that day.

So it most likely was in Paris. Notre Dame’s roof is a thin cladding of lead over centuries-old timber framing. Dry, dry, dry wood possibly treated with pitch or tar(?). The lead requires soldering from time to time but they have to be extra careful given what lies beneath. On Monday something slipped. Bad. You know the deal - the central spire collapsed, the roof is gone, and complete destruction was narrowly averted by 500 doggedly determined firemen.

I am not yet ready to embrace any theory aside from this obvious scenario. Yes, I’ve seen some pictures. And, y’all know I have a keen sense of affairs and a vivid imagination. As is, I don’t (yet) buy the Islamic Jihad or false flag angles. I have, however, sensed a tremor in the force of Western Civilization.

Little Benny Shapiro earned every bit of ire ever directed his tiny, 5-foot 2-inch, idiotic, yarmulke-wearing, Trotskyite, anti-Western, anti-Christian, snake-tongued-lying way with a single fool’s Tweet (in response to an impassioned plea from President Trump):

He perhaps revealed a little more than his idiocy. Dipshit Benny/Twitter.

Others of Benny’s kind instantaneously heaped the fuel of anti-Messianic hatred on the fire of French pain. Literally, to hell with them. And, too, with those of the Mohammedan variety who celebrated in the streets and smiley-faced and hearted on the socials. To hell with, again, with the degenerates of homogeneous globalism, of Macron and his vow to rebuild “in a way consistent with our modern diverse nation.” This isn’t their hour, any of them. This is our time ... of the Phoenix.

Joyful news broke that the damage was contained. Numerous invaluable relics were rescued, either by good fortune or by first responders. Fire brigade chaplain Fr. Jean-Marc Fournier personally saved the Crown of Thorns thought to have been worn by Christ.

Fr. Fournier ‘showing no fear.’ Loraillere/Daily Mail (UK).

*Une note spéciale,
La Cathédrale sera reconstruite. La Nation sera reconstruite. Que Dieu protège les gilets jaunes. Puisse Dieu sortir les hordes. Dieu sauve la Chrétienté et la France!

Notre Dame will be rebuilt in a manner of glory consistent with French values. With Catholic values. With Western values. With those and those alone. So too, shall France and the West rise again. If the destruction of the church building of wood and stone was a metaphor for the late fall of Christendom, then we’ve already seen a Divine sign of promise and redemption:

Hope amidst the wreckage. The altar candles didn’t even melt! Picture from Chateau Heartiste.

This photograph demonstrates the age-old fact that We cannot be beaten, because He cannot be beaten. We are told: “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against It.” (Matthew 16:17). Period. Joke on that, Shapiro Wormtongue.

Sports Desk (I have several desks): Glory in Augusta! Tiger Woods Wins Fifth Green Jacket Via Incredible Cinderella Comeback for the Ages.

Sunday, I drove from Covington to the Augusta area (to the “CSRA” of Augusta-speak). And, what a drive it was - deftly navigating a slew of tornadic turbulence. There were multiple wrecks, dozens of downed trees, inches of standing water, and blinding rain. Yet, I persevered. But, not like the man on the radio - a man camly determined to beat all odds and to secure a greater place in sports history. More on him in a second.

The 2019 Masters Tournament ended Sunday, the 14th, after a record NINE days! of play and practice. The previous Saturday, lovely Jennifer Kupcho won the inaugural Women’s Amateur Championship. Martha Burke, peace, be still. The fun continued the following day with the Sixth iteration of the National Drive, Chip, and Putt Finals. Congratulations to young Miss Angela Zhang and all other impressive winners!

Then, came something we haven’t seen in fourteen years - the Tiger show at the National. Putting aside the pain, the past, the former 1,500th ranking, and most importantly, his own emotions, Woods drove quietly though mightily for four days. On Sunday, as I sat at a rest area on I-20, he captured his fifth Masters victory, 13 under par.

This feat, comparable to Jack’s 1986 “old man’s miracle”, was beyond impressive. Love him or hate him, Woods once again proved he’s the best thing in golf. Tiger Woods had mastered and defeated his greatest opponent, Tiger Woods. Not too bad for a guy my age.

*Que Dieu guide et protège les golfeurs.

And, why was I on I-20? Well...

On The Road: Perrin Visits Covington, Mayhem Ensues…

For a year now, I’ve crafted these tales of the affairs that grip, shake, frighten, and soothe a Nation. I thought it was high time for a visit with headquarters.

I caught old MB hard at work teaching the next generation of real estate professionals.

And, the wisdom flowed. Pic by Perrin.

Good luck to all the prospective pros! And, thank you “Amy” for humoring yours truly. Call me…

A whirlwind of smoke and booze lead us through Cork, City Pharmacy, and a high school prom. At last, we arrived at Casa Da.

Left meets Right … in the street. Perrin.

We had a swell time. I finally got to smoke a cigar with Ellis. I’m already looking forward to the next time. Thank you for the excellent hospitality, Sir.

This grouping was as dangerous as it looks. PL.

Next, we were off to Amici and a meeting with the one and only Miss Kayla! I thought I had found “The Korner” but they informed me I was merely intoxicated. Yes, she’s just as sweet and pretty as you all imagine.

Bookends of beauty, books of … us... L-R: Kayla, MB, CFF’s Man o' the Road, Kayla’s darling friend. Another Pic by Master P.

The rest of the evening was a little fuzzy. We had pulled pork. I tried to broker a record deal at The Depot. Someone really should have given us water instead. A meeting with Jim Beam, a short walk, and a harrowing run from the police and we were back at TPC high command.

In the end, I think we agreed it was time to pay the C.F. Floyd a visit. We agreed on something. I admit that I greatly missed not meeting Bess and Melissa (next time, ladies!). I did, however, meet Marshall’s secret weapon and, undoubtedly, the driving force behind TPC’s enduring success:

Vixen, the world’s most lethal cat. Yet ANOTHER Pic by Me.

*Ed. Note: It's true. Vixen is the Publisher/GM/CEO of TPC

And so it was: a mad man in a mad town. Now, you know the real story, if any.

*No cats, Realtors®, prom queens, golfers, writers, microscopic neocon-artists, or disc jockeys were harmed in the production of this tripe. Readers? Sorry, couldn’t be helped.
