Lakota Schools did the Right Thing: A 3-2 vote that shut down gender identity from progressive intrusion into a conservative community

Thank God that the gender identity policy did not pass in my home district of Lakota. As much lobbying as progressive groups applied to our school board, the Board itself was supposed to be representative of the community, and the 3-2 decision against the policy reflected those current values. Actually, I was impressed with the courage it took those board members who voted against it to do so. The rationality the opposition applied to the vote was that board members were afraid of community backlash which is something that should seem obvious. Of course they were. Gender identity is not something that should even be a part of the school experience—and to put such an emphasis on a sexually driven issue is destructive and well beyond the experience of education. Lakota being the eighth largest school district in Ohio was a big player in this national dialogue, so I am proud of my neighbors who voted no. It took guts, and Lakota provided leadership on this issue that most districts would not—up to this point.

To those who have moved to Lakota and brought all these crazy liberal ideas with them from wherever they came from, I have to say to them that they really have no right to impose those progressive values on the rest of us. I’ve been in the Lakota district most of my life and lived in Liberty Township when there were cows across the street from my home. The region is one of the most conservative in the state of Ohio and it’s that way because of its history that extends back to the Revolutionary War. If you moved to the Lakota district and bought a nice $500,000 home, we welcome you. Have a good time in Liberty Township or West Chester to the south. But keep your progressive values wherever you moved from. The assumption is that if you moved here, you valued what you saw. Don’t come here trying to change us into you—because we weren’t the ones moving. You were. And when it comes to the kind of values our conservative families want in their school—having boys going to the girl’s bathroom isn’t one of them. It is unrealistic to bring such nonsense to an education environment in the first place.

Now for the progressive groups out there who want to back door the conservative nature of Butler County with this gender identity garbage—this was a big defeat. They want nothing less than to conquer our conservative natures and make us all more “progressive” using our children to get at our sentiments within our homes. We cannot allow our government schools to become weapons of the political left. Kids should be able to go to school and not worry about some confused kid who is a boy but wants to be a girl running into the girl’s bathroom because they feel they more identify with that gender. Or the kid who pretends he’s a girl because he really has a pervert nature and uses the signs of mental illness to have access to the nudity of his classmates. Yes, there are kids who would fake a gender identity to get access to girls in the bathroom or locker rooms in gym class. The Lakota school board was wise to avoid that hot topic and establish a precedent that other schools can now follow.

Gender identity is not some random event, if a child is suffering from it, the cause is due to terrible parenting. Any parent who has a child who doesn’t know what sex it is, has failed that child with reckless leadership within the home. Reckless because they have not taught their children the basics of navigating through a life of facts. If I spoke to every kid who has this gender identity problem I am sure I would find a parent who screwed up that child’s life in their early years in some way—so it’s a parental problem. Sexual identification after all is only a role we play in the procreation of children. Women give birth. Men plant the seeds for it to happen. In that game the male tends to be the initiator, the woman the recipient. She has to be discriminate in the process to decide if she wants the DNA of her future child to entail the traits of the aggressor. Beyond that process, males and females should otherwise be considered equal. This notion however that a boy can be a girl if they want to or vice versa is a freakish state that actually messes with the destiny of the human race and it has been concocted by what I would consider insanity—by the type of people who think Fantasy Fest in Key West is cool, and who think the Rocky Horror Picture Show is art.

I understand that people who are functionally insane—who enjoy The Rocky Horror Picture Show for instance want the company of others to authorize their diluted minds with mass appeal—but they are not entitled to ruin the minds of our children just to justify their mental impediments. There is room for them in society and we should treat them with compassion and tolerance—to an extent. But they should not be allowed to shape our society with their brand of insanity. Insanity in this case is defined by defying the role of our biological natures against reality and insisting on something else which by nature is completely nonfunctional.

For those who said that the school board members who voted against this measure are afraid of community backlash we should actually redefine that statement. We elect school board members who are supposed to represent our community, so they can protect our interests in just these kinds of instances—where outside influences attempt to change the nature of our community using our children as a platform. The attempt taken at face value is actually quite hideous, so those that voted as representatives of our community when activists were in the room putting immense pressure on their decision is a commendable act, and they deserve praise—not retribution and guilt. That’s the way the process is supposed to work and I personally won’t forget it. But the slant of the media covering this story was that the policy would pass because traditionally the activist pressure applied would force them to vote for the squeakiest wheel in the room—the transsexual activists and their immoral plight to corrupt nature itself with progressive agenda issues.

Yes, small reverberations of shock moved through the political world on a national level over this seemingly little decision within the Lakota school district. But the suggestion should have never occurred in the first place. To those on the losing side of this issue, you should have kept the issue in the closet where it belongs as an anomaly of human nature. A sickness cannot be allowed to define the human race and if we are trying to teach our children anything in public school it shouldn’t be that unisex bathrooms will be part of their future. I have been in many of those unisex progressive bathrooms at this point in my life, especially in London—and they are dumb ideas. Men and women should be given a little distance from each other so they can dispose of their waste without the embarrassment of interaction. The sexes should be allowed to have their mating games for the procreation of life—because that’s the only purpose of it. Those who are for these gender identity polices are also the same people who see abortion not as mass extermination, but as a moral right of the mother. So it can be argued that these progressive policies are anti-life in every way imaginable. They are not about acceptance of individual sanctity as they pretend. They are immoral impediments to existence—and they tried to impose themselves on a tax payer funded school. In that regard I hope this defeat stings enough to push them off the front pages and back into the insane asylum where they belong. They should have expected nothing less in the conservative region of Butler County, Ohio—where at least we still value the traditions that made America great in the first place.

Rush Run Farms: How to make taking a shower much more exciting

Obviously it takes a lot to impress me, but once I do get excited about something, I tend to have explosive enthusiasm about the topic.  So when my sister-in-law whom I’ve known since she was a very little girl told me she was starting a signature soap business—I sort of glazed over on the topic.  After all, soap is soap—right?  Well, she and her husband have this really cool farm just south of Dry Ridge, Kentucky where I sometimes go so we can shoot some of our big guns and I noticed a series of boxes where they were growing some unique items.  After a little probing Nikki told me that it was for her business.  I shrugged my shoulders, loaded my guns and shot for the rest of the afternoon not thinking much of it.  After all, I’m a guy—using soap is like a two-minute operation for me.  But then on Christmas she gave my wife and I a nice little present featuring her soaps and that’s when I could see how much craftsmanship and passion she was putting into this business.  Her product to my experience was far superior to what they were selling at Bed Bath and Beyond and I thought she was on to something.  Here is a description of her work from the website of her soap business, Rush Run Farm.

We are Nikki and Brian McAllister, proud owners of Rush Run Farm.  Here at the farm, we believe in nature’s beautiful simplicity.  Our farm is host to an organically grown herb garden including eight different varieties of Lavender (Munstead, Jean Davis, Vera, Miss Katherine, Sachet, Hidcote, Sarah, Grosso, and White Grosso), two varieties of Rosemary (Arp Rosemary and Madeline Hill Rosemary),  and four varieties of mint (Kentucky Colonel Spearmint, Lavender Mint, Peppermint, and Orange Mint),  These organically grown herbs are used to make our Kentucky handcrafted all-natural soaps.  Stay tuned to watch our garden grow!

Our Soap Shop will feature our signature soaps such as:  Mint Julep Soap, Derby Soap, and Horse Feed Soap.  We use only the finest, purest, most natural ingredients we can find.  All of our base oils and butters are certified organic.  Every step of our soap making process has been carefully thought out to minimize any type of toxins being introduced.  We DO NOT use any plastics of any kind as BPA, phthalates, and other toxins could leach into the soap.  Our molds are made out of unstained wood.  We only use glass, stainless steel, silicone, unbleached parchment paper, and painters tape in our process.  We want your soap to be as pure as can be.

In our Craft Corner, we will be offering Kentucky handmade crafts made from recycled materials from the original farmhouse on our property.  We will also use natural elements found on our farm to make our crafts.  Here in Kentucky, we have a unique heritage and defining character.  We hope our store will bring a little bit of Kentucky to you!

https://www.rushrunfarm.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html

As we all know in business there are three basic kinds of manufacture, mass production, lean, and then there’s craft.  Craft production is certainly what Nikki is doing.  After using her product I can testify that it is like driving a Lamborghini as opposed to a Lincoln MKZ, or a Toyota Camry—only its soap instead of a car.  The soaps have a feel to them that feels exotic and makes you feel special for using them.  Of the cars mentioned all of them are nice of course, the Lincoln is a product of mass production, the Camry of Lean, and the Lamborghini of craft where all the components are handmade and put together by a small team heavily specialized mechanics.  What Nikki and her husband are doing are hand making the ingredients of these soaps to bring craft production into the execution of their product which then carries over into the daily routine of personal body maintenance.  In a world where we tend to take things like body maintenance for granted, Nikki was onto something with her Rush Run Farm product line, and I was proud of her for taking things to that next very important step—moving from conception to execution.

So if you are looking for a last-minute gift idea for Christmas, check out the link to her site and pick up some of her offerings.  Her product line is unique enough to break the ice on those sometimes awkward Christmas gift exchanges where you want to give someone something special, but don’t have time to do anything but swing by the mall to get something quick—then feel bad about it because you meant to do something more personal.  A visit to Nikki’s Rush Run Farm website is just the thing for that unique gift item.  And if you are looking for a volume purchase, tell her you know me and see if she won’t cut you a deal.  It’s one of those things you can’t go wrong on, because she actually makes soap exciting.  And that is quite an extraordinary task!

Nikki is originally from the West Chester area graduating from high school at Lakota.  After a short modeling career that had New York agents seeking her out, she attended Ohio State then moved south where she met her husband.  They have been very successful literally as power brokers in energy commodities.   After turning 40 they made a decision to invest in the farm south of Dry Ridge from their original home in Louisville and have been directing their life in that direction finding a passion they both could share.  So it’s nice to see people pursuing their dreams, but it’s even better when those dreams use the method of craft production to make taking a shower much more exciting and the after effect of how you feel once you have been cleaned and pampered to a point that makes you feel unique.  I think she’s onto something special so I hope she does well with it and sticks with it until it’s a household name.  Nikki is a neat person, not just because she’s my sister-in-law.  I admire her tenacity and her endless optimism.  And best of all, she voted for Trump—and she’s not afraid to tell you about it.

Genius is Far More Important than Sameness: When the problems are outside the box, go there and get them

It seemed perfectly logical; my daughter’s instructions to my pre-school grandson were to help the sailboat find the dock in the maze below.  The little boy looked at the situation and then made the line you see below connecting the sail boat to the dock down at the corner of the page with a straight line.  Most teachers in the world would see what he did and take it as defiance—and they’d likely seek some form of punishment—or ask for a parent teacher conference to correct the behavior—so that the little boy would properly follow instructions in the future.  And I’m already aware that teachers and public schools in the future will want to put the kid on Ritalin to “calm” him down into the speed of his surrounding classmates.  That is how our society treats these types of things—they seek to destroy the condition and to make the young students into a kind of mind numb sameness as the rest of society.C1F2B895-C261-4B4D-B5CF-1A8FF5F9D36B

When I saw that picture it instantly reminded me of something I did in kindergarten under the exact same conditions.  I even remember doing it.  While all the other kids were carefully trying to figure out how to navigate the maze we were told that before we went to recess we had to solve the problem.  I simply drew the straight line and was the first standing by the door ready to go outside and play.  It felt weird to me to stand up and be in front of the class while every one of the other students was still working—but I knew I had completed the task if I wanted to play—and well………..I was done.  The teacher had assumed that everyone understood the rules that the purpose of the exercise was to follow orders, not to solve the problem.  To me the lines on the page were made up rules artificially put there to restrict a solution to the problem, and that the most efficient way to achieve the objective was to simply go through all the barriers keeping the objective from being fulfilled.

I did get into a lot of trouble, especially after the teacher tried to make me feel bad about it.  When my reaction didn’t produce the level of shame the teacher thought was appropriate my mom was called in and instructed how these kinds of things should go in the future.  Of course that wasn’t the first time and it certainly wasn’t the last—and by the time I was in high school I had heard it all before and was numb to the efforts.  Luckily for me Ritalin wasn’t being used yet to treat hyper active minds of young children so I was able to keep my thought processes—and to this very day it helps me enormously.  In fact, the way I think is something that is highly sought after in the professional work, because it’s unique.  The world needs desperately problem solvers, and it really needs people who can see through the rules that mankind puts down on a page and can deliver an objective while virtually everyone else stays within the artificial lines of the rules they’ve made.  We call them “outside the box thinkers” and they are very valuable to advancing mankind.  However the purpose of public education, or any government endorsed education system is not to nurture these kinds of people—it is to destroy them, and to focus on the sameness of its population.

I was recently in a business meeting where all the participants were very rigid thinkers and we had a conflict that was essentially over their lack of understanding of my problem solving methods—which was very outside the box.  From my perspective they were the blind trying to learn to see, and from their perspective there are all these lines on a paper that indicate the rules of society and how we are supposed to navigate through them to reach the objective.  In my mind the objective is what matters, not the artificial restrictions we’ve created for ourselves as a society.  Those lines that keep us in the box of thought are after all only symbols of a contemplation process which forged them.  When new information indicates that the lines don’t hold much meaning, then why restrict yourself to their effects?  So the meeting we had was not about solving problems, it was in adherence to previous beliefs built in the minds of inferior intellects and I wasn’t budging.  I never have and I’m certainly not going to start now. Yet as those kinds of engagements go I always walk away feeling sorry for the people whom I’d refer to as blind.  They are stuck in a box of thought and they either lack the ability or the desire to come out of that box where the real solutions are.  Their lifetime of training solidifies their minds in a kind of concrete for which they can never emerge—their entire lives.  Talking to them is like speaking to someone who has been made deliberately dumb and handicapped to keep them in a line of thought that the governments of the world want—but perilously entrap them as individuals.

For instance my family celebrated with our members in Louisville over the weekend an early Christmas that we do each year and upon returning we got stuck on I-71.  Road conditions had black ice everywhere and there was a major wreck which completely shut down the northbound traffic near La Grange.   It was a terrible spot to get stuck because at that part of the highway there is a large median separating the southbound traffic and there wasn’t another exit for at least 5 miles.  So there we sat in a way I never find myself in—because usually there’s some way to go around the mess.  We sat in that traffic for two hours until enough people up the highway from us got off the next exit and sought some alternative route before we could move up to do the same.  On my right there were tractor trailers stuck in a parked position mostly with their engines off.  On my left was a forested median with no way to drive across to the southbound traffic.  The emergency lanes were littered with people looking to do the same thing—it was just terrible.  Eventually we inched our way up to an exit and were able to get gas—which we were nearly out of—and head down to the Ohio River to take a side road up to Carrolton where we then could get back on the highway—twenty nine miles upstream.  By then the traffic blockage was passed and we were able to resume our drive back home. What astonished me as we got off the highway was how many people at the gas station were filling their tanks and getting right back on the ramp to emerge back into the stopped traffic, which was backed up all the way to Louisville—and after several hours, it still wasn’t moving.  Only a few cars out of the many thousands present thought to drive around the traffic by using side roads.  I think if we hadn’t done that, we’d still be on that highway.  But people just don’t think that way naturally, when they are given a problem, they stay in the lines where thought is comfortable—even if it is extremely painful to them.  And that goes back to their school days where they were taught to stay in the lines and not to deviate—the intention of their homework was not to solve problems, it was to adhere to the rules.

My proposal is that we should spot kids who think outside the box and help them become that much more exceptional instead of destroying them into the kind of sameness that keeps people locked on a crowded highway or stuck trying to solve business solutions from within the confines of inferior thinking.  If the solutions are outside the box, then go out there and get them. But it isn’t the genius level kids who draw lines across the artificial rules of the printed page that are the problem—it is in our desire to make them as dumb as everyone else.  That is a crime against humanity in my opinion, and is one that we could change easily just by having a slight adjustment to our educational priorities.  Genius is far more valuable than sameness.

Superman Doesn’t Do Drugs: Theory of a Deadman’s song, “Rx” (Medicate)

The best thing about art is that it should make you think about things and music certainly falls into that category.  That is clearly the case of the new song by Theory of a Deadman called “Rx” (Medicate).  I like the mood of the song, it’s sort of spaghetti westernish—however the lyrics absolutely disgust me.  I find almost every line of the song repulsive—yet fascinating.  If I had to apply a song to the age of Millennials which defines their era I think this song would be it.  As I looked into this song a bit I wasn’t surprised to learn that there was a message behind it as lead singer Tyler Connelly stated to Billboard.

“I really wanted to discuss how messed up America is with this prescription drug thing. When I got divorced, I went and saw a therapist and the first thing she said was, ‘I want to put you on some Beta blockers or some sort of anti-depressant stuff’ and I’m like, ‘No! No Way! What? How is that the first thing you want to do?’ I just feel like something’s wrong and I felt like the song needed to be written and people needed to hear it. It seems like every week something terrible is happening. I mean, Chris Cornell…and when we shot the video for it all these directors we talked to were like, ‘Oh yeah, I had a huge prescription drug problem, so this hits home’ and all that stuff. So it’s a really important song and I’m so happy we get to release it first.”

[Verse 1]
Wake up to a cloudy day
Dark rolls in, and it starts to rain
Staring out to the cage-like walls
Time goes by and the shadows crawl
Crushing candy, crushing pills
Got no job, mom pays my bills
Texting exes, get my fill
Sweating bullets, Netflix chills
World’s out there singing the blues
Twenty more dead on the evening news
Think to myself: “Really, what’s the use?”
I’m just like you, I was born to lose

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Why, oh, why can’t you just fix me?
When all I want’s to feel numb
But the medication’s all gone
Why, oh, why does God hate me?
When all I want’s to get high
And forget this so-called life

[Chorus]
I am so frickin’ bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I’ll sit around and medicate (medicate)
I am so frickin’ bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I’ll sit around and medicate (medicate)

[Verse 2]
Can’t wait to feel better than I ever will
Attack that shit like a kid on Benadryl
Chase it down with a hopeful smile
Hate myself, I can go for miles
They say family’s all you need
Someone to trust who can help you breathe
Inhale that drug, but you start to choke
You fall on the outs of an inside joke

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Why, oh, why can’t you just fix me?
When all I want’s to feel numb
But the medication’s all gone
Why, oh, why does God hate me?
Cause I’ve seen enough of it, heard enough of it, felt enough of it
Had enough of it!

[Chorus]
I am so frickin’ bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I’ll sit around and medicate (medicate)
I am so frickin’ bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I’ll sit around and medicate (medicate)

[Bridge]
Superman is a hero
But only when his mind is clear, though
He needs that fix like the rest of us
So he’s got no fear when he saves that bus
All the stars in the Hollywood Hills
Snapchat live while they pop them pills
All those flavors of the rainbow
Too bad that shit don’t work though

[Post-Bridge]
Your friends are high right now
Your parents are high right now
That hot chick’s high right now
That cop is high right now
The president’s high right now
Your priest is high right now
Everyone’s high as fuck right now
And no one’s ever coming down!

[Chorus]
I am so frickin’ bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I’ll sit around and medicate (medicate)
I am so frickin’ bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I’ll sit around and medicate (medicate)

[Outro]
I medicate

The part that really bothered me in the lyrics was the section about Superman and in that the protagonist thinks that God hates him—that they were born to lose like everyone else.  What a terrible way to wake up and see the world.  That is about as far from my reality as there ever was, but then again I don’t do drugs of any kind.  I don’t do the doctor thing these days exclusively because all any of them ever want to do is put you on medication for every ailment.  Modern medicine has clearly become just a legalized industry of drug pushers—and I don’t do it.  I don’t even take aspirin if I can help it.  But I am also in the extreme minority.  Most people do take some form of a drug and it comes from their doctors as if that makes it all OK.  Superman would never take drugs, his mind is always clear—he doesn’t need false courage to save a bus.  But, from the perspective of a Millennial that has been raised in a society of three progressive presidents, Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barack Obama—where broken families are the norm, drug addiction is justified by prescriptions, economic mobility has been tightly regulated by an overzealous government—this song really is their experience. And that is terribly sad.

Just because I don’t want something to be true doesn’t mean it isn’t and unfortunately this song is the reality of way too many people.  I’d love to tell people to live more the way I do, but then that’s not their experience.  I’d say to them that the sum of your total life is precisely what you put into it by way of thoughts, and if when you wake up in the morning, you are depressed about something—you are headed toward loserville by natural inclination.  For anybody to be “so frickin’ bored” that they “need” to medicate is just a modern tragedy considering all the options an intellect has these days.  When I get up each day my biggest stress is accommodating all my interests.  I am never board, about anything.  There are just too many interesting things to do and think about—I like my mind sharp so I can do everything.  I can’t afford to have a period of “high” just to take away the pain of living.  Pain is part of living, and you have to be tough and willing to fight through that pain to get to the good stuff.  However, that isn’t the mode of living for most people in this modern age.

I would add that my support of Donald Trump from the beginning to now is largely due to this terrible swing of temperament we have moved to as a country.  For years everything has become so negative I think largely because so many people are on drugs—legal and illegal.  Just going to get a drink after work is a bad trend in my mind.  Trump doesn’t drink or do drugs.  If he has an addiction it has been to be productive—he has many interests like I do so I understand the guy.  He has brought great energy and awareness back to the public through sentiment—and I think that’s the only way out of this mess—is to have someone say from the top that drug use and addiction is a bad thing to do.  People really do need to hear it, and they need examples to live by.  That is also why I write these articles every day.  I want to help people and if something I write can do that—it is my hope that it does.

So good job to Theory of a Deadman for writing such a provocative song—I wish that reality which they are presenting in it wasn’t the case, but unfortunately it is.  We have several generations of this stuff to get through before we see a new generation that has some hope of living normal productive lives under a new day in America where unemployment is at or under 4%.  Where families might return to staying together and bank accounts will be filled with opportunities for dreams.  I really do think that the age of the Trump administrations may reverse some of these trends because the conditions of this song just isn’t acceptable.  I wouldn’t want this to be the reality for a single person anywhere in the world.  But it is however the trend—and the household standard for which everyone lives.  I can say this as an answer to the song.  I’m not “high” right now, and I never will be.  And Superman never takes drugs and that’s what I wake up expecting out of myself every single day—is to be superman.  Everyone should.

FBI Director Christopher Wray’s Fantasy: Smoking out the bad guys from within the Deep State

I know FBI Director Christopher Wray is new on the job, but really, going into the public arena and making blanket statements about how great the FBI is just because it’s the hometown team was drastically unintelligent.   I think he thinks he is supposed to say those kinds of stupid things as the acting director, but he destroys any credibility he’s trying to assert—because the evidence says otherwise.  From what we know of the FBI agent Peter Strzok and the recently demoted Justice Department official Bruce G. Ohr, these intelligence agencies are spectacularly corrupt.  This event involving the FBI radicalization against the Trump administration will go down in history as one of the biggest stories of corruption in American history so it’s no mild manner.  The FBI has lost its credibility and is in tatters.  I don’t have faith in it anymore and that has nothing to do with President Trump.  I lost faith in it years ago even before they blew the case for Hillary Clinton’s emails by avoiding the prosecution of her.  It was obvious from a distance, so we can only imagine what things were really like up close.  Now we are discovering how politically weaponized the FBI had become by the revelation of the personalities involved.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-12-07/mueller-is-making-sure-his-investigation-will-live-on-even-if-he-s-fired

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/12/07/louie-gohmert-fbi-trump-russia-probe-could-be-corrupted-beyond-hoover-wiretapping-mlk

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/07/top-doj-official-demoted-amid-probe-contacts-with-trump-dossier-firm.html

Any case of corruption or obstruction of justice that Democrats would ever want to make against Trump for his firing of James Comey will never see the light of day.  Even if he were guilty of it, Trump is in the clear just because of the overwhelming evidence that the FBI and the DOJ had been weaponized against his incoming administration.  Proving that President Trump had malicious intent in firing Comey would be next to impossible under any circumstance, but because all the people on the other side are so unreliable, it makes any testimony or evidence they could present completely irrelevant.  The trust has been broken well before President Trump took office and now that these investigations have lingered on so long with nothing to show for it, it’s obvious that we are just seeing two sides of a civil war in America emerging, and only one side will remain when it’s all done.

I’d like to remind everyone that I predicted an end to the Democratic Party sometime around the time period of 2020 and if you look around everything is shaping up to make that happen.  Democrats have no fundraising to speak of.  They have no platform that normal people can buy in to.  Their control over our education intuitions are failing and people are now on to them.  The complete takeover of the media industries is now falling apart—Hollywood is in shambles, the news media is losing its major stars to sexual harassment claims as power-hungry women are turning everything on its head as a kind of inner party coup using Democratic platform points to push out their male counterparts from powerful positions.  Women can be just as corrupt as men so the result of all that behavior will just amount to lower ratings and less public trust in those failing intuitions.  And now we’ve learned that our FBI and DOJ along with what we already knew about the IRS are corrupt and filled with political activists.  The men and women of the FBI may be nice people, they may be hard-working people, but they are part of a weaponized intelligence gathering population that can peer into our cell phones and computers at will and attack us based on political motivations.  That is clearly what was going on with the incoming Trump administration.  And if they are willing to do it to them, they are doing it to all of us.

When a fake dossier paid for by a political opponent is used by the FBI to obtain a FISA warrant to justify the spying on an incoming presidential administration—and that acquired intelligence is then used to entrap a person like General Flynn into a plea deal using the power of the unlimited arms of justice to exert political pressure and manipulate the circumstances to the advancement of the opposing political party—to fuel a completely made up narrative about Russian collusion to additionally hide the crimes of that sponsored political party—we have serious business going on here that is excessively corrupt.    Remember when on January 10th of 2017 when James Comey stepped up to the incoming President Trump and let him know about this dossier, which British MI6 agent Christopher Steele had written and Senator John McCain had personally helped bring into the United States.  What does anybody think Comey’s reasoning was behind informing Trump of such a salacious document which featured him in compromising situations meant to put him on the defensive?  The intent which would be easier to prove than Trump’s attempts at obstruction of justice—where to gain political leverage over Trump to shut his mouth as an incoming president and get control of him before he took office.  That dossier was known by the media as an organization since the week before the election but was held purposely to be revealed to the public just before the inauguration, to take the steam out of Trump’s train.  Before approaching the future president with the dossier content the FBI had been spying on the Trump team to get to know the players using that same dossier to obtain the FISA warrant which allowed them to do that spying.  But the entire thing was a made up concoction of the opposing political party meant to derail the election of Donald Trump in the first place.  And the FBI was using that salacious document to gain leverage over an elected president.  Do you see the problem dear reader?

Many people think that since Trump now controls the DOJ that he and Jeff Sessions should clean house, shut down these investigations and assign new special prosecutors.  However, Trump is doing a fine job of letting these losers expose themselves.  This is a delicate situation that involves most of the Beltway mechanisms from both political parties and the greatest weapon against them is not more investigations and throwing fuel on the fire even showing that hiding evidence may be in the back of Trump’s mind for firing Bob Mueller.  The best course of action is to let these idiots drown on their own incompetency which is what Trump appears to be doing.  If I had to advise him on the best political strategy, it would be to do just as he is—let them destroy themselves, as they are presently doing.  An incompetent cannot compete with a competent.  Most men in Trump’s situation if they acquired their power the traditional way—through the “power of pull” would have something in their past that they are ashamed of—so even if that dossier were inaccurate, the fear that real material might be uncovered would reside in the back of their mind and push them into inaction—which was why Comey was the one who delivered the information to Trump—as a leverage piece to gain power over the incoming administration.  Trump however is a self-made man, as self-made as they come—and he knows better.  Comey was fired five months later after it became clear what kind of guy he was and the leaks that came out of Trump’s new administration had to be stopped, and they ended literally at Comey’s door—which the disgraced FBI Director had admitted to in front of congress.  Comey was fired after that testimony and that was just the tip of the iceberg—we now know that Comey wasn’t alone in his political motivations within the FBI and the DOJ.  There were many others as well—there was a culture within the FBI that wanted Hillary Clinton to be president and they took action to either help her win by avoiding the evidence of severe crimes, or they tried to undermine an elected president against the American people who employ them.  In this case both statements are true and that means that the FBI is in big trouble—as they should be.

So for FBI Director Christopher Wray to testify how wonderful his agency is, is just more lies and deceit.  We all know better.  He would have had more credibility to say something to the effect, “I understand we have challenges to recover our reputation” or something along those lines. But to say that the FBI are all a bunch of A-political hard-working, trusted employees just isn’t true.  If the bosses at the top were politicized, then the underlings who were boot licking their way into promotions were also part of that weaponized culture.  We are lucky that against all odds Trump was elected because if he hadn’t been, none of this would be exposed now.  We might suspect that something was wrong, but the controls that were in place to protect the FBI from investigations of their own simply would not happen.  Congress would not be forcing documents to be turned over for analysis and the FBI would continue to be just another contributor of the Deep State which always intended to run things their own way by controlling American presidents with fear and loathing—as they have for most of the last 100 years.  Exposing them is tricky business and Trump is doing it the right way.  From within the President is slowly changing the culture at the FBI so not to throw the baby out with the bath water all the while smoking out the despots who have been corrupt all along.  And before it’s all said and done—there will be a lot more names emerging which are guilty of turning the FBI into the real disgrace that it presently is.

Al Franken Resigns from the Senate: Using The Cowboy Way to treat women correctly

With Al Franken leaving the Senate, as he should, it would be a good time to discuss how men should conduct themselves around women in every circumstance. Granted, some women are just as aggressive and manipulative as men are and sometimes they should be engaged with equally when they present themselves as a threat. After all, women can’t punch you in the face then hide behind their sex to avoid retaliation—that’s not an equal application of justice. If they want to be treated equally, then give them that respect especially when challenged. However, when it comes to general conduct I’d advise everyone to turn back the hands of time and utilize the behavior of The Cowboy Way to bring chivalry and respect back to male and female interactions. More on that in a bit.

So Al Franken stepped down from his Senate seat. It was pathetic to watch him try to bring Donald Trump and Roy Moore into his issues. The biggest difference between Trump and Franken aside from the fact that one person was an idiot, and the other is a great president, is that Franken admitted to the wrong doing. Trump and Moore have denied their allegations and therefore are not guilty. As I stated early on in these discussions about sexual harassment, just because someone says you said or did something doesn’t mean you actually did it. Women are not immune to deceitful action just because of their sex. Just like men, they will use whatever advantages they think they have to acquire power and position especially if the courts are inclined to vote in their favor by default. In the case of Al Franken, there was photographic evidence of his crime, so that seals the deal for him. Trump simply commented on it—and even that was more of a philosophical observation on the nature of celebrity. There is no case to state that if Al Franken had to resign that Trump also must resign just because there are “allegations.” That card for which Franken was just a pawn won’t work. You can’t be guilty of what people say about you. Only in what you do. Lots of people say lots of things about me. But no matter how much they dig there is nothing to find—because I live my life cleanly. So does Trump apparently.

I treat all women respectfully using the basic code of The Cowboy Way. I always treat them well, speak to them professionally, and go out of my way to make sure they feel elevated in my interactions with them. I grew up with television shows like Gunsmoke and Bonanza so if you want to know what The Cowboy Way is, just watch a few hundred hours of old westerns and you’ll start to get it. Even though women say they want to be equal and that they don’t want you to pick up the check at dinners, they really actually do enjoy being treated in a special way. Women are biologically inclined toward their sex after all and the role they play in the mating games of life, so compliments are always welcome. But you should never tell them that you like their tits or that they have a nice ass—even if they ask you too. It’s best to avoid any such conversation, because using The Cowboy Way, no gentleman of honor would ever do such a thing to anybody but his wife or a mate that has given permission for that kind of undercover talk. Even then a smart guy would be cautious.

What is consensual really is up to what a woman defines it to be. So long as men understand that, they’ll be alright. What I mean by that is that if a woman flirts with you, you can only advance the discussion based on the criteria she sets. If she takes one step and you—as a man—take two in return, then you have trouble. She has leverage over you and can then accuse you of sexual harassment if she later determines that the only use she has for you is leverage in her life—then you are up shit creek and didn’t even know you were doing all the paddling. The best method of course is to be polite, be respectful, and be sincere—and avoid flirting and other seductive advances with a tip of the hat.

No question many women flirted with Al Franken, not because he was a good-looking guy, he looks like somebody took a shit and sat in it in all actuality. But he was a celebrity with Saturday Night Live and that made him kind of cool with girls who were looking for opportunities. They may have let him grab their boobies at parties or banter playfully about sexual exploits. Al thought he was the Fonz, but to the girls, they were just fishing waiting to see what bit on their hooks and how they could use it to their advantage. Sometimes what they catch they put in the freezer and use it years from now, like the women who brought him down are doing now. His problem was that he was guilty of it, and he showed a behavioral predilection toward that type of behavior. So he admitted to the accusations and now he had to resign—the behavior matched the premise.

Its best not to leave any doubt however. By treating women correctly in all aspects of your life day in and day out, you will be able to swipe away the false attacks by women who are up to no good and want to latch themselves to whatever power you’ve obtained in your life. We call those types gold diggers when they are young and attractive, we call them leeches when they get old and ugly. But their motivations are always the same and if they can, they’ll use any means necessary to ruin your life so they can profit just a little bit. By Al Franken’s own admission some of his accusers are doing this, just as Matt Lauer has stated—they are making baseless claims against the celebrity status of these men. But as with Franken and Lauer they conducted their lives recklessly making jokes about women and grabbing their asses in public like pubescent teenagers so when an acquisition does surface, people will assume its true.

If a woman unbuttons her shirt and moves in close to talk to you, don’t look at her tits. Kindly move away and position yourself so that you couldn’t possibly see anything. Make sure to maintain eye contact not only to be respectful, but to let her know you are not taking the bait. Do some fishing of your own by tying a bomb onto their hook and let it blow up in their faces. The more powerful you personally are, the more you must do this for your own sanity. You can do this by being overly nice and gentlemanly all the time, even when you think nobody is looking. Just a few nights ago I was getting gas at 2:30 in the morning and a girl who was dressed clearly as a prostitute was at the pump next to me. She looked like a call-in dancer who was either going to a client or coming from one. She obviously expected me to pay special attention to her, but I didn’t treat her any differently than if she were a five-year-old kid—nothing that could suggest otherwise. I mean these days there are cameras everywhere and for all I know she was sent there to trap me in some way. So I just did my thing and when I went into the store to pay she followed me in. I held the door for her in a polite way but letting nothing more be said. And that was the end of the meeting. However, being a man, she was flashing all the signs and part of The Cowboy Way is to fight off that instinct to take an intellectual position of valor over raw animal magnetism. Yes the girl was extremely hot, and she was flirting. But in all actuality, she was likely younger than my daughters and that just wouldn’t be right. It’s always best to say no to those kinds of things and to not even let yourself want to go any further. That is why Donald Trump is much different from Al Franken. Franken couldn’t control himself—and that’s why he had to resign.

Naming Jerusalem the Capital: The path to peace in the Middle East

As I’ve said before, there was this thing called the Sykes-Picot agreement signed after World War I that pushed most of the tribal Arabs out of the Middle East giving control of the region to England and France. The famous British crusader Lawrence of Arabia had unified the tribes of the Islamic Middle East to fight for the crown essentially, and once the war was won they were screwed out of the spoils of victory. The Arabs—such as the modern Palestinians have been resentful ever since. If T.E. Lawrence had not unified the Arab world, the tribes would have eventually been conquered by European forces one way or another just as the Indians were overtaken in North America. It was the nature of human development and a lot of people screwed each other over and there’s no way to take any of it back now. What’s done is done and that’s the end of the story. Only the Jews have always been a part of Jerusalem’s history and over many millennia they have been pushed and shoved around by newer religions and empires that essentially wanted to destroy them. That is in essence what is going on with Palestine to this very day. They want to return to the pre-treaty days before World War I and do not want anything to do with Israel. Their entire existence has been to claim the Holy Land in favor of Islam—which given how things evolved over the Crusade period, they have a point against Europe. But the issue with the Jews goes back much further than any of that anxiety, and that is why its right and noble for Donald Trump to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

What Islam and Christians have in common is the work of Aristotle. If not for Islam the works of Aristotle—for which much of American civilization is built—would never be known to us. So we do have them to thank for preserving that bit of Greek philosophy—which they adopted and had great success as a culture until the period of the Crusades. However, Islam is a fairly new religion upon the world scene and they have never evolved as a culture beyond the Middle Age mindset. That’s why it was a minor miracle that T.E. Lawrence was able to unit them all for a common cause, because at that point in time they were essentially living as they did 500 years earlier as tribes of nomads. Just like the nomads of North America were no match for human evolution of thought—the tribes of Arabs divided as they were became very easy to conquer once T.E. Lawrence died in a minor motorcycle crash in his homeland of England. (I’m just saying—not getting into any conspiracies—just the facts)

In 1947, the United Nations adopted a Partition Plan for Palestine recommending the creation of independent Arab and Jewish states and an internationalized Jerusalem. The nation of Israel was officially born that thus started a long history of territory wars and terrorism that persists to this day. Arab leaders all over the Middle East refuse to acknowledge the existence of Israel in any form and they’ve used terrorism to keep the area unstable in their favor. It doesn’t matter to them that the entire Middle East except for Israel looks like a war-torn region of destroyed huts and roads broken beyond repair—because they still desire to live in the times of the Middle Ages. They don’t care about human evolution of thought and industriousness. Their values are not conducive to the modern world and so far in all negotiations on the matter, the only side that has given anything has been the Jews.

Aside from the United Nations setting up the Jewish state their boldness ended there. Fearing terrorism from sponsors like Palestine and Iran, Jerusalem has been made into a kind of neutral zone where the Jews have been forced to worship their former temple from the vantage point of just one wall while Islam claimed the Dome of the Rock as their own. Not wanting to provoke further hostilities the nations of the world backed off and essentially told the Jews to be happy with what they had. That is until President Trump declared today, December 6, 2017 the day that America recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and that the American embassy would move there from Tel Aviv. Of course the Jewish people have always thought of Jerusalem as their capital but regarding the rest of the world, they wouldn’t. The reasons were many, mostly in the guilt they all played in antagonizing the situation in the first place with do-gooder intentions that really came out bad because they were trying to mix human societies at two different levels into a unified whole. That was never going to work. With the United States taking this step, it gives Israel a backing it’s never had by the world’s most valiant superpower and it changes entirely the dynamics of the Middle East.

The reason nobody has taken a stand before was because the people involved just didn’t understand how to gain a good negotiating position. Conventional wisdom thinks that by appeasing the Palestinians that the path to peace in the Middle East could only come from keeping them from wanting to destroy everyone in the world who isn’t of the Muslim faith. Trump—Mr. Art of the Deal, knows better—the way to negotiate properly against a hostile force is to destroy their premise—or what they have been trying to prevent—which was to keep the world always afraid of them so not to allow Israel to ever hold Jerusalem as the official capital. Because once that happened the idea that Israel would be pushed off the map into the Mediterranean Sea would be destroyed forever. Israel would be there to stay. Of course the Arabs will be upset and the nations of the world will want to march against Israel—like it states in the Bible in the times of Armageddon. But self-preservation is a very motivating factor and when it is realized that the United States is willing to put its foot on the necks of a culture from the Middle Ages and protect the crown jewel of the Middle East—Israel, then negotiations will become much easier. When the choice is between the capital of Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, terrorism and fear are viable strategies to keep that from happening. When the choice is life or death, then the prospect of peace is much more inviting so long as they are free to live in their huts, marry their many wives and talk about the good old days when they were a new culture that persevered the work of Aristotle.

Trump knows, and many will soon learn it, that the path to peace in the Middle East is not through appeasement, it is through conquest. We can either pick modern culture or an ancient one. And if you are going to pick the ancient one, then who has claim to Jerusalem more than the Jews? Under every consideration of fairness, the Jews deserve the city of their ancestry. The many sins that have occurred from then to now are irrelevant, because the Jews were essentially there first and they have shown more than anybody in the Middle East a tendency to want to step into the 21st Century, and that’s what matters most. This move by Trump is the first step toward peace and it comes by picking a side. The next step is in the other side realizing that they are facing complete annihilation, or an opportunity to keep on living. And I think we all know what they will pick.
