A Fire is coming in July

Bringing the Fire

Volume Two of The Lonesome George Chronicles

The battle for America rages deep in the heart of Texas and from sea to shining sea, as citizens from all walks of life fight against both the invaders and the collaborators in Bringing the Fire. 

Familiar characters return, including reluctant freedom fighter Whistler, the vengeance-driven Molly Ivins, and George W. Bush, who is trapped in the darkness of a protected bunker as communications with the outside slowly fail.  Determined to serve his country to the last, he undertakes a dangerous escape from the safety of the bunker.  Loyalties are tested and people die as the last elected President of the United States races to save what is left of America.

The First Casualty

Welcome, Instapundit readers.  This is a mirror from my site, roymgriffis.com, which was wiped out in the devoutly-to-be-wished-for Instalanche.

(Note:  this is the original English version of an Op-Ed piece I was asked to write for Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger on what the election means for the United States)

Trump won.

That surprised not only the Hillary faithful, but a lot of conservatives as well, including me.  Because, frankly, most of us (including the candidate herself) figured the end of this movie had already been written.

Why Trump?

This seems to be the question a lot of perplexed Europeans are asking of Americans:  “Why in the world would you vote for Trump?”

Before we begin, google the term “JournoList” and the name “Jonathan Gruber.”  I’ll wait.

Quickly, you’ll discover that JournoList was a private email list made up of a number of writers and reporters for major news organizations in the United States.  In 2008, this private email list of the people who craft and create the news presented to Americans declared themselves the “unofficial Barack Obama election committee.”

Make a dent in left-dominated culture – nominate “right” novels for publication!

As RWR readers know, our Prince of White Bread is a published fiction author. Needless to say, it’s a pleasure to read his work because it’s written from a world view to which we can relate. In a Roy Griffis novel, the sky is blue, grass is green, Conservatives aren’t evil, Progressives suck, and the world makes sense. And also, no sucker punches. Ah, readerly bliss!

As RWR readers also know, Andrew Breitbart famously pointed out that politics are downstream from culture. We on the Right clamor for more positive entertainment options, not only for our own pleasure, but because of pop culture’s potential power to sway public opinion away from somehow looking upon Progressive (Communist-Marxist-Maoist-Stalinist) Fascism favorably. America has very little time left if it is to be saved.

It’s for the Children

Hollywood comes up with awesome new education initiative. http://goo.gl/PrWqEV And it’s airing today, September 11! You know they’re doing it for the children, even if seems weirdly inappropriate, like they’re trying to push 9/11 out of public consciousness.

Hollywood would never do that, though. I mean, they made a mini-series out of “The Road to 9/11” that dared to criticize the Clintons. Of course the critically acclaimed “Road to 9/11” has never been released on DVD, but that’s probably a coincidence.

It was clearly more important to use precious plastic disks for the collector’s edition of “Golden Girls,” a vital cultural touchstone. Because Hollywood and the Left are all about speaking Truth to Power! (Liberal rapists like Bill Clinton, Roman Polanski excepted)

Writing is About Story, Not Race

“It’s not their fault,” her cousin Jonny countered. He was leaning against her cousin Ray, but she couldn’t tell if he was intoxicated or too upset to stand. Probably both; he shoved away from their cousin to fall at her feet, nearly topping Masuto and Mikio. He clasped her knees, sobbing. ”It’s my fault! The whole plank thing was my idea. I almost killed your future husband!”
