Perrin Lovett: Falling Back Into History

 The autumn season commenced at 9:31 AM (EDT) on Tuesday, September 22nd. Happy fall!

There is so much going on, as usual, if the unfolding this year is unusual. We’re still waiting on Dr. Fauci to tell us if the leaves may change colors, based on his highly-scientific reading of some chicken bones or something. If we’re allowed to observe, please remember to wear your face diaper; leaves are known superspreaders. BLM politics ball is in full swing! There’s the presidential (un)reality show. We have the “twin-demic” of the Corona Hoax and the coming of another common, ordinary cold and flu season - many more trillions of people under the age of 300 and otherwise immortal will sadly succumb. And we have the still-simmering civil war. 

In other words, we have some conflicts. Then again, when don’t we? We even, from time to time, see eras like this when all of society is reordered. Now might be the ideal time to read about earlier times of mass chaos. (Yeah, sorry, it’s another bout of national affairs literacy). As the esteemed Vox Day recently pointed out, even those who know history may still be doomed to repeat it. However, at least we have the benefit of understanding what’s happening, and thus, we may be able to stave off the more uncomfortable aspects of the repeat.

Niccolò Machiavelli: History of Florence and of the Affairs of Italy

You’ve, I sincerely hope, read The Prince. That is, of course, a master treatise on the accumulation and wielding of power. The History of Florence, recently repeatedly recommended by Mr. Day, explains in great detail what happens when the power falls apart, taking civil order with it to the dustbin of history. 

The first part of the text rapidly covers the fall of Rome and the Dark-Middle ages, particularly as to the constant changes in Italy. An astute reading will help explain, not only what happened then, but also what has happened to the United States more recently. The potential transition from societal strength to weakness is explored:

Hence, wise men have observed, that the age of literary excellence is subsequent to that of distinction in arms; and that in cities and provinces, great warriors are produced before philosophers. Arms having secured victory, and victory peace, the buoyant vigor of the martial mind cannot be enfeebled by a more excusable indulgence than that of letters; nor can indolence, with any greater or more dangerous deceit, enter a well-regulated community.

Cato was aware of this when the philosophers, Diogenes and Carneades, were sent ambassadors to the Senate by the Athenians; for perceiving with what earnest admiration the Roman youth began to follow them, and knowing the evils that might result to his country from this specious idleness, he enacted that no philosopher should be allowed to enter Rome.

Yes, we are mindful of concurrent examples like Socrates. Yet, a nation-state founded by Enlightenment-influenced philosophers was probably destined not to last nearly as long as the Western Roman Republic and Empire. Hint, hint.

The rest of the book largely revolves around what became of the various competing cities and regions of Italy, naturally as seen from the academically-contracted seat of Florence. This could - and “could” is a loose and dangerous word - help an intelligent student predict what may become of the remains of that nation-shaped kind of place sometimes still known as America. In short: it’s time to find your tribe and your tribe’s place in the mix. As Machiavelli makes utterly clear, demographics is destiny. The fact that this iron law is challenged by the current luciferian elites proves its truth and value. Ask yourself: Do I trust Machiavelli, and through him, Cato, Cicero, Livy, et al; or, do I trust Ben Shapiru and the paid-off morons on the idiot box? Please be careful in considering, as your answer might have a stern bearing on the lives of your descendants (if any).

Also, consider why you might have never heard of this book before: if ‘they” don’t want you to know, then you really, really need to. Given the prevailing, revealing economic conditions, the unbeatable price of this (500-year) time-tested work is an added bonus. You’re welcome. I believe that both of the following editions are based on a 1901 translation:

Free, in various formats, at Gutenberg.

Free, for Kindle.

Upon completing History, it would be wise to read Machiavelli’s Discourses on Livy and his Art of War. It might also be wise to regularly consult Vox Popoli. There’s still time, though not nearly as much as there was.

Now, if you’re among the Farceberg subliterate sect, then know that I’m still looking out for you. Thank you for making this far! Here’s something more appropriate for those below the lower Hollingsworth line: “Try not to laugh…

Ellis Millsaps: All Star Break

  *ed note: This piece was written by Ellis on September 8th.

OK there's no All Star Game this year and hence no All Star break. As a matter of fact we’re two-thirds of  the way through this sixty game season and MLB has managed to pull this off fairly well.

The  Braves are in good shape. As it stands now we would be the second seed in an eight game league tournament and play the seventh seed, a third place team in one of the divisions  

It looks as if we might have come up with a second reliable starter, young Ian Anderson. How far we can go in the playoffs likely depends on whether Cole Hamels comes off the injured list this month and reliably fills the third spot. We have the best and deepest bull pen in either league. We have six starters batting over 300, Austin Riley is on a tear, Freddy just completed an 18-game hitting streak and Albies will return soon. Oh, and we have excellent defense.

 If we're able to return to a full schedule next year, I don't want to see all the pandemic rule changes retained. I don't like the seven inning doubleheader games. Even worse is the start extra Innings with a man on second rule. It isn't fair for a reliever  to receive loss or lose a save because a runner on second base --which he didn't put there-- scores on a bunt and a sacrifice fly. I don't want to see these extended playoffs again. Keep one wild card team and make all series four out of seven.

 I don't like these rule changes because they mess with the history of the game. Baseball has been keeping records for a hundred and fifty years. fans like me rely on these like the Bible. Some of these changes don't really mess with the records. I surprised myself by finding that I have become accustomed to the designated hitter rule. The American League has had this rule  for forty-seven years. That's long enough that it's already part of the history and I confess I like to see that extra bat in the lineup. Likewise with the new rule that a pitcher coming in from the bullpen must face at least three batters. It speeds up the game and I think makes it more interesting.

Update on the Covington Confederate Memorial, 9/14/20: Injunction to Halt Removal Denied - "Court is Deprived of Jurisdiction"; Appeal Likely

Apparently Superior Court Judge John Ott found that his court was lacking in jurisdiction & denied injunctive relief to two parties today, Monday September 14, here in Covington, GA, ruling in favor of the Newton Co., GA, Board of Commissioners, a political body desiring to have the Confederate Memorial on the Covington Square removed. 

Originally, Newton Co. said they would take no action for at least 30 days as an appeal will most likely be filed; however, as of approx 7:30 tonight, the county has purportedly seemed to changed their tone. 

Might an attempt at a quick removal of the statue be imminent? Is it possible this could go all the way to the GA Supreme Court? 

Questions Abound! 

The Story is very much DEVELOPING...

Ellis Millsaps: Junk Mail

 I'll never be lonely again. Since I gave him twenty bucks Uncle Joe
texts me at least once a day, sometimes Kamala, occasionally his wife.

Same is true of The Lincoln Project and I didn't give them any money.
I just filled out checked boxes on a questionnaire. I texted them back
but there's nobody reading them, just the algorithms and they only
read bank card numbers and the checked boxes. I texted each of them
with an idea I have for an anti -Trump ad.  I received no
acknowledgement of my texts. I've gone further and texted simply,” Is
anyone reading this?” No reply.

My idea invokes the 1994 Dionne Farris hit “I Know” ( “what you're
doing and it's not gonna work this time.”) Google the song and listen.
Imagine the song played with images of Trump coming down the escalator
in ‘16,  boarding of the plane after the Tulsa rally this year, tie
undone and orange makeup on the collar, children in cages, etc.

During the instrumental breaks in the song, a badass rock repetition
of the “Gimme Some Lovin’ riff, we could take breaks between the
verses and Trump could speak some of his greatest hits, e,g,,” rapists
and drug dealers,’’ "good people on both sides,” “inject people with
disinfectant,’’ “Two Corinthians” etc.

I've decided to go old school and send him (Maybe it will get there
before the election.) a letter. Somebody has to read his mail. I thought
handwritten or maybe with letters cut out of magazines to get their
attention, but I’ve now decided on a typed business letter. I'll send
the same one to Uncle Joe, Senator Harris and the campaign's Director
of Communications.

I'll let you know if I get a reply.

A Moment from MB: Folks Turning Left; The War on Traffic Signs; The Chairman in the Bubble

Greetings, GA Piedmonteers, & we sure hope it's fantabulous out there.

Folks Turning Left 

I've made it clear a few times over the years that I'd love nothing more than to have the ability to physically accost those dregs that pull into that left-turn lane there at Floyd & 278.

Also, I'm unfortunately able to report that upwards of a full half of these hapless bastards have Newton Co. tags.

And we wonder why 2020 has sucked so bad.

But, my friends, it's not just there, is it? Turning left, generally, in the home city, has become a bit of a scourge.

Turning left out of the McDonald's on 278? You better believe it! And almost always these people get over just enough to the right where us good, God fearing folk can't make that right turn. These people...I swear.

Even worse? Some people actually try to turn left heading eastbound out of the Dairy Queen.


But, that's nothing compared to the absolute worst - those awful abominations that try to turn left onto 81 out of the Quick Trip parking lot that TPC Editor Emeritus Ellis "Da" Millsaps wrote about some 15 years ago at a certain other publication here in town.

Who are these people & why are they here?

The War on Traffic Signs

In the home city, really for years now, there's seemingly been a full-on attack on traffic signs up & down Hwy 278. The sign at the front of the median (heading east to west) there in front of Newton Package & Jack's BBQ has been taken out at least 4 or 5 times (probably more like 6-8) over the last several years.

Just awhile back, the GDOT, once again, replaced it (see below). Of course they did.

I give this one a couple of months, tops.

But it's not just that one. The one in front of Dollar General has been taken out at least twice over the last couple of years (I'd bet money more); the one down the road in front of the Pure station has too, multiple times.

I wonder if it may have something to do w/ the obvious design flaws?

Hell...probably not?

Signs, Signs

Hope Springs Eternal

The Chairman in the Bubble

From a few months ago, but still...

Seriously, Marcello?

By All Accounts The Chairman was at least somewhat concerned about the 'Rona.

As always, thanks for reading.

[From the TPC Music Desk] - Decatur Band The Bitteroots Drop New, Killer Track - "Time to Spare"

2020 has certainly been quite the year, and the lack of live music has been tough to deal with for many, this writer included. While music venues have largely been empty & quiet over the last several months, that seems to be changing & that's a cause for celebration for many.

While the live aspect has been limited recently, several bands, performers & artists have taken this time to work on new material.

And I'm pleased to report that one such group is one of TPC's faves - The Bitteroots.

Recently the band released a new single - Time to Spare. And folks, I've just got to tell you this - it's superb.

It's definitely a groove jam, there's no doubt about that, but it's so dynamic...it's really hard to put into words.

It almost has equal parts vibe of Carole King, Sheryl Crow, Allman Brothers & the Dead but it's definitely a sound all its own. What it is, really, is the unique essence of The Bitteroots. It hits all the spots. Laura's passionate, soulful vocals; the machine of a rhythm section of Mike Davis & Covington's own Bill Taylor;  some top-notch guitar work by PJ Poellnitz & the always key, exquisite sax sounds of Derron Nuhfer (and it's that horn that really solidifies the Bitteroots style, in my opinion).

Really, this track is the encapsulation of The Bitteroots - blues-infused, hook-laden groove & jam rock!

Obviously, as some of you know, I'm a big fan of these guys & - especially in this day & age - I'm just so damn glad they're out there doing their thing!

I give Time to Spare 5 Stars out of Five! A damn, good cut!

[Perrin Lovett's CFF Feature Column] - Y’all Been Had (Again)

THE National Affairs Column

For months, from the very beginning, I’ve described the COVID-19 hype and hysteria as “a ridiculous, low-effort hoax.” I’ve caught a certain amount of flack for this declaration, mainly from people who either put faith in liars or who are unfamiliar with the definition of the word “hoax.” 

Absolutely nothing about this idiotic pandemic nonsense has added up. That goes double, triple, or a hundred-fold for the deaths. First, the scare-mongers warned of 2 - 2.5 million deaths (by about now, if memory serves). Then, they lowered the estimate to the hundreds of thousands. They ignored that most people appear to tolerate the Corona bug as well as they do any other common cold, maybe better. They shifted to the cumulative case count instead of deaths. And, as of this past weekend, they tallied 183,141 total deaths. That number, like just about everything else they’ve said, is an outrageous lie.

The real number of deaths, per the CDC(!) as of August 26, 2020, is … 9,683. That’s how many people have died FROM COVID-19 in the US in 2020. That means the scare tactic figures are off by a factor of twenty. The real numbers lurk in the (quietly reported) data sets. This is from the same government agency that, in May, reported that those stupid masks do not work. Still, the mantra is: wear the mask(!), and fear all the (fictitious) deaths.

The grossly-exaggerated death numbers are not pure fiction. Instead, they come from all those people who died WITH Corona. Most of the others had comorbid conditions. In other words, they were dying from something else anyway and just happened to also test positive for the WuFlu. Most were older people. The average age of a “Corona death” is 78, which conveniently happens to the average age of death in general. 

Here, with all the lies compounding, the CDC and their allies must be given the Devil’s due of competence. The tests are, let’s say, a little less than accurate. Motor oil has, for instance, tested positive. Some might ask if Corona even exists. Let’s assume it does and that it is next to harmless as a pathogen. 

We have, rounding up, 10,000 deaths out of 6,000,000 cases in the US. That yields a rate of death, per infection, of .00167%. Out of a rounded total population of 330,000,000, one finds a risk-of-death rate of .00003%. That is, statistically speaking, slightly more dangerous than bee stings and lightning strikes. But, in context, it’s only a quarter of the number killed by cars every year. And, it, in total, only amounts to three days worth of abortion deaths. Annualizing (up) to 20,000 deaths, the total is only one-eighth the total from falls and other accidents. It’s a third of the yearly total from accidental poisonings. 

Can any of you reading this, imagine, for even a second, ending the economy and altering all life on earth over bee stings or bathtub falls? No. Yet, it has been done and it has been pitifully accepted by the masses in what may be the largest and most stunningly successful hoax in history.

It is a lie and a deception. All of it. From the beginning and planned.

Why? How many times must I go over the motivations? At first, I assumed this was just a cover-up for the pre-existing collapse of the economy. That has happened. I sensed the coming of the civil war (what it is). That, too, is in progress. The other cause virulentis is control - of everything. 

With a plausibly, statistically insignificant illness, the usual suspects have rendered nearly the entire population into slaves and prisoners. Worse, they have conditioned the people to go along with damned-near anything. And, what’s next? Kindly take off your blinders and use your imaginations. They’re not hiding the agenda.

Take off the blinders and take off those masks! They do nothing and you don’t need them anyway. For the love of all that is good, stop bowing to people who hate you and want you dead. You have been had again. Next time might be the final time.

Perrin Lovett is a right-wing Christian nationalist writer and author in the American South. He would like to concentrate more on fiction, and he would really like to see Western Civilization survive.

Kayla's Corner: Our Little Town is Growing

Hi everyone & welcome back to The Corner! The ever so expanding corner, as there is becoming so much to discuss!

Recently I hit the Big 3-0 & rang it in by celebrating w/ family & friends & had quite a blast. We ate, drank & danced our butts off at Covington's local nightlife establishments. 

So many people complemented & asked about my amazing birthday cake! 

I was pleased to tell them it was produced by Porterdale's finest, Baby Cakes Bakery. It was absolutely wonderful inside & out! So a big shout out to Baby Cakes & y'all make sure to check out their Facebook page to see what I mean! 

I also greatly enjoyed the upstairs private room at The Social Goat Tavern on the Covington Downtown Square, where they have just recently opened up the top portion for drinking & dining so we were able to grab a bite to eat, too!


Being able to still enjoy Covington, Porterdale, Mansfield & Newborn for the 30 years I've been alive has been quite a pleasure. I'm thankful for the growing businesses, the expanding friendships & connections, as well as a strong, thriving work force.

I live out in the country now but have stayed everywhere across Newton Co. over the years & have experienced just how different certain areas can be which provides multiple options for creating your own happiness

Well, that's all I have for now, everyone, so excited about our future!

A Piece by Ellis Millsaps: Little Soldier

Southern Man

Well I hope Neil Young will remember
A southern man don’t need him round 
Sweet Home Alabama--Ronny Van Zant/Gary Robert Rossington/Edward C. King
We say grace and we say ma’am
If you ain’t into that,we don’t give a damn

A Country Boy Can Survive--Hank Williams Jr.

The Majestic Home City

 Leave the little guy alone. Pick on somebody your own size. I'm talking about the little guy on the pedestal in the center of the Covington town square.

 He didn't ask to be there. He was put there in 1906 by white women who had lost fathers, husbands, sons and boyfriends just over fifty years earlier. That's as far back as the Vietnam war is for us today. Imagine how fresh wounds still were.

 Twenty-five percent of their menfolk had died. Many others were missing limbs and eyes so I think we should cut them some slack for thier delusional fiction engraved about the noble cause on the pedestal.

 Many times over the past thirty-four years I've read the inscription and wondered how millions of bluecoats managed to subdue the little bastard. 

He likely wasn't a slaveholder. Only twenty-five percent of southerners were and they would likely have been officers. Looking at him up there I see a small farmer or maybe a blacksmith whose elected officials put him in a war he didn't want. Think Vietnam.

 He didn't go off to fight for the enslavement of kidnapped Africans. He fought because the only land he knew had been invaded by soldiers who were killing his fellow citizens and stealing his livestock and crops whether or not he chose to fight.

 He was not a traitor as lately I’ve heard him described by some on the left. Benedict Arnold was a traitor. The little Confederate was fighting to defend his family and friends, and even though their reason for doing so was unholy-- to keep their slaves and expand slave territory-- the slaveholders who succeeded from the union will not “traitors” either. They simply said they didn't want to play anymore. 

Beginning seventy-three years earlier they had voluntarily agreed over the next fifty years as five sovereign states & six territories to unite in a coalition with other former colonies & territories. Now they said we want to get out. Nothing in the constitution  they had signed said they couldn't change their minds.. It was sort of like leaving the European Union. If they were traitors then they don't compare to the revolutionaries who fought against the king who had defended them from French and Indians.. 

I don't support sandblasting Stone Mountain. We should make it a learning experience. The State of Georgia which now owns the park should visibly and audibly relate its history to visitors, that at the time of the carving on the rock the mountain was owned by a man who was instrumental in the second forming of the Ku Klux Klan and that until 1958 it was a venue for klan rallies, detail the many lynchings they executed during that time.

 The same should be done with plaques around the little guy on the square, explain the climate of Jim Crow at the time the women put him up there. point out that the largest lynching in our state's shameful racial history occurred the year before in nearby Oconee County.

 As to the statues of slaveholding generals, I’d ideally like to see them all peaceably removed to a museum of the Jim Crow Confederacy. Wouldn't it be cool to enter an arena with all these ghostly statues surrounded by truthful accounts of who erected them and why.

 Back to the little man on the square, He don't mean nobody no harm. He’s seen a lot from his perch. He’s seen discrimination against the descendants of former slaves. He’s seen civil rights marches. He watched me face down masked klansmen from the balcony of the old courthouse in 1990.

 He’s furthermore a part of our modern history as the Hollywood of the South. I've seen tourists have their pictures taken with him not because he's a confederate soldier but because he's a part of our place in entertainment history.  He didn't ask for the job. Leave the little guy alone.

What can I say?

You knew exactly what you were getting in to. I've never given any illusions to the contrary.

TPC is a true passion of mine. It always has been & it always will be.


I just don't have the time for it right now.

Hope you understand.

There will be posts moving forward, but they're going to be here & there, sporadic. Maybe sometimes few & far between.

And that's just the way it's going to have to be.

[Perrin Lovett] - The Mustard Seed: Instructions for the Resistance

I wrote another column on the gamboling fun of organized sports entertainment in 2020. In short: it’s not happening, or not happening much, sorry. Be your own sport. Buck the trends and get in shape. There. I may have more on that later. For now, consider the following, which I deemed of greater value:

Perplexed as always, the Disciples asked Jesus to explain what caused their failure in doing that which He did with ease. “He answered, 'Because you have so little faith. In truth I tell you, if your faith is the size of a mustard seed you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; nothing will be impossible for you.'” Matthew 17:20.

We, all of us, could use a little more faith these days.

One thing leads to another. I was reading a Mary Cuff article at Crisis the other day and, in a very rare move, I clicked on a pop-up ad. And I’m glad I did because it led me to a video presentation by Church Militant featuring Father Paul Kalchik. 

Kalchik is almost a household name in right-wing, traditional, American Catholic households. We, some of us, have followed his titanic battle against the forces of the sodomitical wolves currently at work against both the Church and the Flock. Because of HOAXID-19, it was, of course, a virtual teleconference. Because of his amazing victory, and subsequent lavender mafia retaliation, Kalchik joined the show from a place of hiding. However, there is no hiding the magnitude of his inspirational message.

Part of the missive, which amounts to an hour-long homily of peace, was the above-cited parable about the mustard seed of faith. My thoughts of late, regarding the state of the world and especially the terminal decline of the American nation and the United States, have led me to consider that our main problem is the woeful character of the people. I summed it up to myself as people being both wicked and stupid. One is bad enough on its own; together they are a dreadful combination as one amplifies the other. We see the results all around us: a people, barely surviving, who almost gleefully play the fool’s part in accepting hoaxes, lies, degradations, and disaster, all wrought by the same usual suspects who have lied to, robbed, and murdered humanity for centuries. 

Father Kalchik sees all of this too. He takes a calmer, more reflective approach to it than some (not looking at your author, no...). He names the problem and those behind it. Call them globalists, globopedos, the illuminati, fear-mongers, or whatever you will, they are only the dark one and his loathsome servants. It really is that simple. And, Father K. offers a surprisingly simple solution for us: Faith and Prayer. Well, those simplicities along with a healthy dose of RESISTANCE, which is the title of CM’s conference.

He gives concrete steps anyone can take to fight the forces of hell. It’s all bound by faith in Jesus Christ. It takes strength through prayer. And it moves through calm questioning, learning, and action

Due to his own circumstances, he’s understandably taken with the technology of encryption. I do wonder about his suggested “digital catacombs.” Have we come that far, or retreated that far? Perhaps. You be the judge once you’ve seen or heard the message in full.

Along the way, in the presentation, Father tells some of his own backstories. He adds a great quote from the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen about not going with the flow: “dead bodies float downstream.” He also discounts just a select few of the more recent hoaxes set into motion by the luciferians, including:

The general uselessness of the tacky popular culture;
Y2K (I’d forgotten about that!);
Global Warming;
Climate Change;
White Guilt;
LGBT+P; and
Corona hype and hysteria.

Again, he only chose a few and only those from the more recent decades of memory. In every case, all cases, it is the same evil at work.

His ultimate point is that, eternally, evil cannot win. Without our consent and participation, it really can do little more than annoy us who are in the world but not of it. Still, a certain Carpenter told us to take care of business until He returns. We have a solemn obligation to resist. That’s where so many of us - at times, all of us - fail. Fortunately, inspirationally, the fix is as small as the mustard seed. It’s high time to move some mountains.

Please take an hour out of your busy, locked-down, masked lives and watch the following (or, as I did, listen to it while doing something else):

Fr. Kalchik, CM, June 2020.

Furthermore, kindly pray for Fr. Kalchik. For a brief explanation of why he’s “on the run,” please read THIS and THIS. In summary, he took a page from the Lord and Saint Paul and mortally angered the sodomite usurpers by burning one of their sacrilegious artifacts. In a (perhaps distantly) forthcoming novel, I have a heroic character based on Kalchik. In a literal world that frequently out-shocks the most dystopian fiction, it’s good that we have real characters, real heroes, like him. 

Now, all, please acquire the seeds, and move those mountains.
