Happy New Year

So, 2020 finally ended last night Huzzah, Huzzah, Huzzah! Frankly, though looking east this morning I don’t see much sign of a “New Morning in America’ or for that matter Great Britain. Looks a lot like S²D² to me. Although for our peoples, it’s up to us, if we won’t let them get away with it, they won’t, and we’ve been in some damned tight spots before, and won through. So buck up and fight the people’s corner. The one sure way to lose is not to fight, peacefully, with the tools our ancestors left us if possible.

But I wanted to say a little about how things went here at NEO to the people who make it possible, our readers. we had about 45,350 viewers last year, by far our best year, beating the next by about 14,000 views. What’s even better those people who visited us looked on average 3.8 pages each. That’s pretty healthy for us, people are looking around while they are here not just reading what they came for.

864 People follow us one place or another, starting with subscribing here and the rest on social media including a lonely two on Tumblr.

In the eight and a half years we’ve been here our most read post is “The He Shall be the Greatest Man in t World” about the respect that George Washington received from King George III when John Adams was appointed the first US Ambassador to the Court of St. James. The second is “Sea Lines of Communication” an explanation of the Maritime policy that has allowed first Great Britain and then the United States to dominate world trade.

Most views here are from the US, which is likely no surprise. The US leads number 2 UK fivefold, which means the UK is catching up kind of slowly but measurably. Number 3 is Canada this year, last year it was Hong Kong which sadly has all but disappeared, maybe the Chicoms don’t like us much here.

So for us as a blog the future looks pretty good unless we get hauled off for reeducation

As for the rest, Open Blogger at Ace’s Morning Report (it’s all worth reading, as always) made a point I want to emphasize.

One thing is clear. We cannot go on as before and while the Enemy has a stranglehold on us we certainly will not go on as before because things are going to be on their terms. But no one is infallible. Not even them. As we reflect back on this past year and the three prior to that, the verdict from my perspective is in: President Trump will go down as one of the greatest presidents in our history. In spite of all the political and social forces arrayed against him, he instituted the greatest economic boom in history, engineered major foreign policy triumphs by challenging geopolitical rivals and enemies and orchestrating Middle East peace deals thought impossible, and helped bring about vaccines against a Chinese engineered biological weapon at “warp speed,” among other things.

But his greatest achievement is exposing the decades-long generational corruption of our government to a vast swathe of the populace, heretofore unaware or uncaring. To put an ironic twist on a disgusting threat from an equally disgusting woman who once was first lady, what President Trump revealed will never allow us to be able to go on with our lives as before. And ultimately, that is a good thing.

Keep the Faith – In God and in the Anglo-American people.

And a memory from my America – “The Black Ghost”

    Happy New Year all. 🙂

    A short message from me today. Taking aside the insanity of modern day politics, 2021 will be as good or as bad as we, the people, want it. Though we can’t effect change at the top of our countries, we can in our lives and I for one won’t let any more opportunities slip by. I will work to make this a great year for Tina and myself and hope that everything we want comes to pass.

    I’ll also offer up my shockingly late movie review, on Going Postal, for your consumption.

      That’s key, Pontiac. If we do what we can to fix our lives, the rest will fall into place. Happy New year to you and Tine. Make it a great one.

      Love your reviews! And all your other writing as well!

      Let me suggest a movie to you: Carnival of Souls. It was made in 1962 but I didn’t see it until it was old and making the rounds on late night movie channels. It has stayed with me all these years. It’s free on YT. Let me suggest watching it at night. It is unlike most horror movies in a lot of ways. I do want to suggest, though, because it is different, you may write it off fairly early in the movie; that would be a mistake. Keep an open mind and watch til the end. It’s creepiness stays with you long after you’ve finished watching it. I’d love to see you review it, good, bad, or indifferent.

        Thanks, Audre.

        As a matter of fact, we have Carnival of Souls. Tina’s watched it but I haven’t. I’ll add it to the list of films, good and bad, I’ll be reviewing this year, including a couple suggested to me on GP – one of them, Killer Sofa, is about, wait for it, a killer sofa! Who knew? 🙂

        There are only a tiny smattering of films I’ve struggled to watch to the end. The last big one was, I think, Titanic where I proposed the only good bits were when the ship sank and the credits. They should also have put Celine Dion on that ship on the lower decks for the crime of releasing ‘that’ song!

    You have kept the faith, you have kept the flame burning, and I think we really can say “yes” to that question: “ Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave / O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?” I don’t fancy any one’s chances of re-educating you, dearest Neo xx

      I do my best, dearest friend, as you have reason to know. 🙂 xx One of my favorite thing about the anthem is that it ends with that question. There is quite a lot more to it than that first verse, all of it applicable

      They had plenty of trouble educating me the first time, I doubt they brave enough to try it again! 🙂 xx

      LOL! Yeah – I don’t think re-education would work on Neo. He’s a gentleman but I suspect not a gentle man, if you know what I mean, lol.

    Interesting information on the blog; added to my list of things I didn’t know. Is it only me or is everyone’s list of things they didn’t know get longer lately?

    I never make new year resolutions because they are pointless but bless all of your readers, commenters and supporters Neo. You do a grand job.

      I have thought a lot about that question Jess posed in 2020, “What are we living for?”, and while I think she meant it at the personal level, I think it is a valid question for nations as a whole. One can describe a nation as having a kind of soul: vision, unity, coherence, drive, etc. These Democrats, Anarchists, Communists, etc. that are marching in your streets have no right to call themselves Americans. They have voided themselves of the American Soul. If your nation becomes composed of only people like that, there will be no more America. The same thing is happening here and is far more advanced in Canada, in my estimation.

        You’ll find few patriots to argue with that, Nicholas, in any of our nations.

          Indeed, some remain, but for how long? They’re clamping down on freedom of speech (see what’s happening in Scotland at the moment).

          Most of the Scots who believed in freedom have been Americans for generations. Most Americans still do, but are a bit too comfortable yet to really get angry, you’ll notice when they do.

        I think you have described how our nation states have come to look quite similar to those soulless cities of old: Sodom and Gomorrah. We know how that ends and I doubt that we should expect a better ending than they got unless we help clean out our own filth . . . otherwise we might expect the fire of purgation to do the dirty work.

          Thankfully you at least have protections if they try to amend the Constitution itself – but the failure of the police to act and your DAs and our CPS to prosecute in 2020 is a bad sign.

          Supposedly. But then this ascending pretender to the office of President tells us something about how they view the Constitution and we note that they routinely disregard it without any penalty whatsoever.

    There are plenty of comments on various websites that declare we are at war.

    P.S. My! A very interesting story about the Black Ghost and Qualls.
    I gave my story (on the blog here, many moons ago) about my installing a Chevy 265 cc., small block in my Green ’60 Falcon, when I was 20. I’ll save all from the details of this notice, although I think it’s interesting. No documentary and it’s not still around like the Black Ghost. 🙂

        Yeah, was. Might’ve even been on Engineeering and Logic, back when.
        BTW, sold my old rusted out 79 K5 Blazer to Mud Racers, said they could use the rear axle and sale the transmission and transfer case. I felt kinda like Qualls about letting it go, still running but a rust heap.
        My son in law says the original removable top was worth a lot. I didn’t know the venues to market parts, so i best letter go as is and not have to disassemble. So I just settled for my $400 stimulus cash, 🙂
