Conservatives often complain that Hollywood makes no Conservative films, and when they do, we either don’t notice, or we let them bomb. The first Atlas Shrugged was good. It bombed. The two sequels lacked the budget to be good as a result. In Kubo and the Two Strings, we have an even bigger cinematic tragedy, because here is a great movie, one that is surprisingly Conservative and without beating you over the head with it, and it tanked, badly.

NOTE: The following is a sample chapter of my upcoming book Dictators and Capitulators: A Conservative's Guide to Surviving the Age of Trump. There is no release date yet. But this is a work in progress, and may not represent the finished product.

Looking ahead to the upcoming election, our prospects are not good. The Real Clear Political Average shows us losing the majority in the Senate, by three seats, and losing twenty seats in the House, dropping from some 240 some odd seats, down to 220 some odd… still in the majority, but just barely. It's time to face some hard truths, then decide where we go from here. The havoc Donald Trump will wreck will leave the party in the worst shape it’s been in my entire life. Trump will lose, and he will weaken the GOP in the process.

|Thank the Donald for this|
I know there are some people who will freak out on me for calling this race already, but it’s pretty obvious that this is the inevitable outcome, unless the Delegates show some real balls at Convention. Donald Trump was the only Republican candidate regularly losing to Hillary in the polls from the time of his announcement. Even Ted Cruz, until the last month of a prolonged and particularly nasty primary, was ahead of Hillary in most polls. Logic would dictate that Republicans should have picked anyone other than Trump, but this was not a logical year.

As I begin this episode I must confess that I am at a loss for words. Tragedies like what happened in Orlando should never happen. Yet they persist, even though I do not recall this being a problem under Bush. Both sides of the isle seem to be pointing fingers at the wrong things. I heard on the radio someone saying that the LGBT community should reject the well-wishing from Christians, and that the LGBT community should stand with Blacks and Latinos against the Christians, because religious bigotry lead to this incident. This, of course, was said in response to well-wishing from Donald Trump, promising to stand with the LGBT community against this sort of insanity.
