Marshal Kutuzov's Prayer: The last shove, the fatal overreach.

Mike Vanderboegh - Glorious!

When the new Intolerable Act passed, I was at first deeply depressed for most of the next day. The die had been cast and in my mind's eye I saw all the butchery to come stretched out before us, and our children, and I mourned for what was about to happen.

And then I thought of Marshal Kutuzov.

When Napoleon with all his Grand Armee continued to push into Russia in 1812, Kutuzov, an intensely Christian man, fell on his knees and thanked God that He had made the French enemy so blind. He knew that even if his army could not defeat Napoleon in a set-piece battle, Russia, the countryside and her people, would. Kutuzov thanked his Maker that the enemy had overreached and would be defeated by his own ambitions.

And so, recognizing that now I would live long enough to play a small role in the restoration of the Founders' Republic -- recognizing that if they had waited another ten years of Gramscian incrementalism that there likely would not have been enough us left alive who remembered how things had been and had the gumption to successfully resist -- at the end of that day after Nancy Pelosi's triumph, I too fell on my knees and thanked God for the enemy's insatiable appetite, blind arrogance and strategic mistake.

After the domestic enemies of the Constitution kick this off by attempting to force their will upon us at our doorsteps, there will be many bloody battles before we prevail, and many of those we will lose. But as Kutuzov said, "The only battle that matters is the LAST battle."

For our enemies' strategic blindness, arrogant hubris and fatal overreach, we should be grateful.

That is the essential thing they do not grasp, cannot grasp, because all their caution is overcome by their insatiable appetites for our liberty, our property and our lives.

For that we should fall upon our knees and thank God.

Pelosi and her Grand Armee are marching further into the hinterland of America. And America will defeat them.
