Day late, dollar short Eyrie update

The Monday Substack post—”NEWS FLASH: Gander not fond of Goose’s sauce“—is finally up and running, delayed due to my mom having been whisked off to the hospital late yesterday for emergency treatment of all kinds of serious issues. After a night spent hallucinating and literally screaming in pain, she’s stabilized for the moment, so I put together a quickie but still top-quality post while I await word that she’s conscious and able to take phone calls again. Thanks for your patience, gang; depending on developments, blogging might be spotty over the next several days.

PROBLEMATIC update! What DeSantis really said, and what he did NOT say.

DeSantis: ‘Soros Attorney’ Alvin Bragg is ‘Weaponizing His Office’ to Prosecute Trump
DeSantis, who is expected to declare his 2024 candidacy against Trump this Spring, broke his silence on the impending indictment during a press conference in Panama City, Monday morning.

I’ve seen rumors swirl, I haven’t seen any facts yet,” DeSantis said. “What I do know is the Manhattan District Attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor, and so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety.

The governor stressed that the DA’s soft on crime policies have been a disaster for New York City.

“He has downgraded over 50 percent of felonies to misdemeanors. He says he doesn’t even want to have jail time for the vast, vast majority of crimes, and what we’ve seen in Manhattan is the crime rate go up, we’ve seen citizens become less safe,” DeSantis said.

The governor noted that while he couldn’t speak to the hush money allegations, he could speak to Bragg’s job performance as Manhattan’s District Attorney, where he has been “ignoring crimes happening every single day in his jurisdiction” only to “go back many, many years” to investigate a political opponent’s alleged hush money payments.

“That’s an example of pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing the office and I think that’s fundamentally wrong,” the DeSantis declared. “These Soros district attorneys are a menace to society and I’m just glad that I’m the only governor in the country who’s actually removed one from office during my tenure.

DeSantis told reporters that he would not be involved in a “manufactured political circus” regarding the possible extradition of Trump from Florida to New York.

Bragg “is trying to do a political spectacle. He’s trying to virtue signal for his base. I’ve got real issues I’ve got to deal with in the state of Florida,” DeSantis explained.

“I’ve got to spend my time on issues that actually matter to people. I can’t spend my time worrying about things of that nature, so we’re not going to be involved in it in any way. I’m fighting for Floridians and I’m fighting back against Biden,” the governor added. “That’s what I do every single day.”

Well, you can’t say fairer than that, to quote the timeless wisdom of one Hamfast Gamgee.

Bold above mine, for reasons which should be fairly obvious. Since the DeSantis statement and the way it plunged the OnlyTrumpers into a fit of the screaming fantods for whatever reason was the topic of the day’s post over there, I could’ve easily appended this to the earlier Eyrie post. But it seemed like a better idea to put it out here instead, so that’s what I did.

The Gov’s remark about not being able to speak to the hush money allegations came across to me more like a bit of self-deprecating humor than anything else: Hey, I’ve never been a billionaire playboy-type myself, nor will I ever be mistaken for some kind of dashing, daring ladies’ man either, so how the hell would I know anything about screwing hot porno-chicks and then paying them to keep their mouths shut about it? Something along those lines, I think.

But who knows? For those who sincerely want to believe Trump is their knight in shining armor, riding in on a snorting white war-horse to save them from Whatever, the Last Best Hope for all that’s Good and Decent, I guess it’s hard to refrain from seizing on just about anything at all as grounds for Outrageously Outraged OUTRAGE!!™ I never did see him that way my own self, so I couldn’t really say, and would never bother trying to.

Eyrie update

My new Substack post—“’15 days’? THREE YEARS to flatten the curve,” wherein I wax more pessimistic than usual about the likelihood of any significant resistance to the next round of lockdowns and other associated bullshit, whether in the guise of Climate Change (formerly Global Warming, formerly Global Cooling, formerly The Weather)™ or whatever the next iteration of Planet-Killing Plague v2.0 will be—is now up and running. Sample ‘graph:

America is no longer America because Americans are no longer Americans; the latter is the requisite precondition for the former, without which etc etc. This, too, is neither happenstance nor coincidence. Like all the rest of it, it’s all part of a Plan—a Plan which is being brought to full fruition in real time, right in front of our very eyes.

Read, subscribe, leave a comment, y’all know the drill.

Eyrie update

The Monday Substack post—yclept “Proud sons of a noble heritage“—is now up, live and in color. It’s a good ‘un, featuring as it does some of my best writing to date if you ask me (not that you did, of course. But still), with plenty of links to some other equally soul-stirring stuff by some of my esteemed colleagues. Check it out, sign up for a sub, leave a comment, y’all know the drill by now.

Update! During the course of corresponding via email earlier today with the estimable and esteemed Baron Bodissey of the Gates Of Vienna blog, to compound my grievous error in not realizing he was a fellow Unreconstructed Southron I also belatedly realized that I had neglected to put him in Ye Olde CF Blogrolle as well. Red-faced apologies to him, and to everyone, for that boneheaded mistake, which has now been rectified. Kinda hard to select a category for GoV; they could easily have fit into several of the available ones, so I settled on keeping it simple and put him into the Pure Bloggery section. Apologies again, my friend.


Eyrie update

Grim fairy tale,” the Friday Substack offering, has just gone live. Long excerpt from another brilliant J6 post by Julie Kelly—which, for reasons which will become obvious when you read it, might soon turn out to be a handy thing to keep around—followed by another excellent culling from the folks at Real Clear Intelligence, with extry bonus commentary interspersed throughout from little ol’ moi. Y’know, the usual sort of thing.


Eyrie Monday

The regularly-scheduled Substack post—Thank goodness such a thing could NEVER happen here!—is now up. It’s a longish look at some truly gruesome FauxVid revelations from London’sThe Telegraph which by rights ought to be shocking, but nonetheless aren’t. Not for some of us, at any rate. Go ye and read of it, for It Is…okay, not Good, not a-tall. Actually, what it is is fucking HORRIBLE, although I mean that in the nicest possible way.

By all means, subscribe should you be so inclined; I believe there’s a link automagickally embedded somewhere in the post to enable that. Participation in the comments section requires a paid ‘script, for each and every one of which I will be most grateful—only three (3) of ‘em so far, but I remain hopeful on that. Reading it is entirely free of charge, just like Ye Olde CF Blogge’s ice cream.

Worth every penny, too.

Eyrie upcoming

Dammit, dammit, DAMMIT. Had it in my head all day, until just now, that it’s Saturday, not Friday. Haven’t even started today’s Substack thang, I need to get right on that. Back in a short, y’all.

Update! Aiight, done and done.

Eyrie update

Working on the Friday Substack thang now, should be up later this evening.

Update! “Guantanamo daze” is now live at The Eyrie. It’s an extensive excerpt from BCE’s up-close-and-personal recounting of what he saw at the 2006 Gitmo riot/”uprising” and how it was put down, with no further commentary necessary from moi. Check it out, it’s good schtuff. Remember, it’s free for anyone to just read, but if you want to comment you have to be a paid subscriber.


Wack Substack

Am I dating myself with that archaic-slang “wack” deployment (noun: A person regarded as eccentric) in the title?

Ah well, be that as it may, the President’s Day Off edition of the Monday Eyrie thang is now up. It’s another brief one, but I think you’ll all enjoy the happy ending.


Moar Substackery

Humble thanks to the handful of folks who have signed up as subscribers to my Substack thang over the last few days. I still don’t have the place looking the way I’d like for it to; near as I can tell, customization options are, shall we say, limited, so it simply ain’t possible to tweak things too very much. As an inveterate tinkerer my whole danged life, with everything from cars to motorcycles to guitars to amps to recipes to websites, you can readily imagine just how severely that chaps my baggy white ass.

It does, however, bring to mind a query: what are y’all’s thoughts on the white text against blue background I’m using there currently? I was hoping to get this Eyrie endeavor of mine to as closely resemble this h’yar websty as I could, but it seems to me that the white text might be kinda hard on older eyes. Do let me know in the comments, please; that at least is simplicity itself to adjust, and I’ll be happy to do so if needed.

There’s also the email-notification-for-subscribers feature to consider, which I haven’t bothered customizing at all yet. Then there’s the multitude of other features, most of which I don’t even know what they are yet, nor what they do.

My original idea for this Substack whoopjamboreehoo was to offer original-content posts there once things get rolling steady, to go up on Mondays and Fridays å la James Kunstler’s joint. I’m less confident about being able to pull that twice-weekly commitment off now than I was, seeing as how I am unwaveringly determined that the dire need to generate some income due to my new status as World’s Greatest One-Legged Blogger (see right sidebar) shall NOT be allowed to infringe on Ye Olde Colde Furye Blogge in any way, shape, or form. I’ve been running this hogwallow for over twenty years now, no way I’ll just let it wither on the vine now. Not on my watch, bub.

On the other hand, though, since the whole idea is to make some dough, I want to provide decent bang for the buck at the Eyrie too, y’know? The benefit would be twofold, I’m thinking, with not only the income potential but the prospect of driving more traffic from there to here and vice the versa figuring into this messy mix.

In the final analysis, the blogging thing entire is about eyeballs and interaction, not money. The free exchange of ideas is the prime motivator, which is as it should be. We on the Dissident Right are sorely beset on all sides by a monstrous, malignant politico-cultural Leviathan; not since the Revolution itself has it been more vital that, as Franklin famously said back then, we all hang together, lest we all hang separately. As the gathering riptide of chaos, dissolution, and collapse threatens to overwhelm and wash away all that we once held dear, those words of wisdom must not be forgotten.



There’s a brand new post up over at The Eyrie, which I initially put here by accident. Sorry ‘bout that, gang; my bad. I’m beginning to make some real headway on getting this whole Substack business sussed out, or so I’m telling myself. It’s available for all to read, but in order to comment you have to be a paid subscriber. I think.
