Columnist Daniel Henninger suggests even people in flyover country get news from handheld screens.  He references Peoria, Illinois as a starting point.  Henninger has a weekly essay on the op/ed pages of the Wall Street Journal.  He’s one of the rare national columnists who always responds when I share a reaction to his work.

Henninger also writes today about the dinosaurs in Washington.  Politicians and the mainstream media gaggle still read old fashioned newspapers and believe it’s what influences the public.  They’re out of touch. 

I was a latecomer to the Trump bandwagon back in 2016 but as the media harassment of the candidate intensified in October that year I became a convert.

Another favorite columnist, Daniel McCarthy at the Spectator suggests the rise of Donald Trump was due to voters impeaching a ruling class no longer trusted.

Living very much in flyover country I can see the two columnists “get it”.  Maybe it’s because Henninger is actually listening to his readers.  You don’t need to parachute into Twin Falls in order to get the pulse of Middle America.  Reading emails from the high desert can also give you the tenor of a large voting block.

I was a latecomer to the Trump bandwagon back in 2016 but as the media harassment of the candidate intensified in October that year I became a convert.  Any man who could burrow so far beneath the skin of the elites in news media and the Deep State must have something unique for our times.

We’re at a crossroads.  We can allow the vultures in media and fellow travelers in the Democrat Party to nullify the decision from 3 years ago.  Or we can get really, really loud.  I believe we need a turnout in support of our President.  A massive one in Washington and for those who can’t take time away from work, we could have smaller simultaneous rallies across the country.  In every city, town and village!

How do we make this work?
