We love Easter! To think, there’s hope for mankind!! Both as a religious holiday and an occasion for a family feast, it’s one of my favorite days of the year, if not my absolute favorite. The only thing that sells it short is that my nuclear family is small and we are far from home-base–we might get people to fly out for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but Easter not so much. We do make the best of it though.
We start out going to mass and I for one am always moved most by the “good thief.” When Jesus promises him a place in Heaven that very day, I can’t help but rejoice–and feel hope! So when we were at an auction for my children’s former grammar school and I saw that a friend of my son, on Good Friday, had inked a drawing of Jesus on Calvary and put it up at the auction, we had to bid on it, and of course we won it. That’s it at the top of this post. Pretty cool, huh? It will go very well in our new-old Spanish Revival home. (More on that in a future newsletter.)
After mass, my husband starts cooking and I whip up–literally whip up–a batch of Ramos Gin Fizzes, which is unbelievably delicious and just as unbelievably fattening, so we get them once a year and that’s it. Ricardio (a pet name for the elusive Mr. Perez that emerged during the super-fun Disappearing Patron Parties of the early lockdown days) always cooks lamb and usually has the meat man take the bones out and wrap them up for me. The next day I make lamb stock and the day after that, Scotch Broth. Scotch Broth is for sure an autumn dish but we have it every April and it is oh so good–so good.
Upcoming Live Dives!
I try to do a Live Dive! every Wednesday, if my guests can accommodate, but times (and sometimes days!) vary, so please check back here for updates. You can also check the platforms themselves–you can find Live Dives on twitter and rumble and usually also YouTube, facebook & rokfin.
I’m clearing out all my inventory before I move July 1, so the merch I actually have in stock at my house has to go! My stash includes Propaganda Report logo tees in navy, black & light grey in S, M & L, Propaganda Report & DNB stickers (I’ll throw in a couple of these for every on-sale mug or tee order!) and white 11 ounce Propaganda Report coffee mugs. If you want any Propaganda Report merch or a Deep Dives mugs (which I love), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Deep Dives Index
Deep Dives are my original content a la the original Monica Perez Show on WSB where my superpower was news analysis.

Blast From the Past
Soooo many people have been asking me about the Boston Marathon Bombing lately, I thought I’d post a one-hour overview I did a couple of years ago with Adam of the Debra Gets Red-pilled podcast…here it is:
and here is the work I’d done on that topic over the years – many of the posts got gutted when wordpress took me down, but they are all still on the wayback machine – all but one that is….
Tamerlan Tsarnaev Was a Radical Islamist AND a Right-Wing Extremist? (salvaged version…for the original on the wayback machine click here.)
Dzokhar Tsarnaev resting comfortably? (salvaged version…for the original on the wayback machine click here. Scratch that. THIS IS THE ONLY ARTICLE THAT IS MISSING FROM THE WAYBACK MACHINE!)
How many Islamic terrorists marry into skull & bones families? (salvaged version…for the original on the wayback machine click here.)
This Month’s Book Recommendation
The Black Cloud, by Fred Hoyle. I haven’t read it yet but it is recommended by one of the greatest Proppers of all time, Sara Dirt. She says it’s great scifi if you need to unwind. Who doesn’t?! Can’t wait!
