The Professional Nerds: They want impeachment to hide their uselessness

One thing that everyone must deal with if you achieve any level of success at life are the professional nerds who ride the coat tails of previous achievement and always establish some kind of coup to claim ownership from the bold who came before them. That was certainly on display in Washington D.C. during the so-called impeachment hearings led by the former prosecutor Adam Schiff. Now prosecutors have never scared me, nor do depositions. In times past when pressed I have done my own legal work and quite enjoy tearing to shreds losers like Adam Schiff who are the very embodiment of that professional nerd culture that has essentially taken over in the Beltway and everywhere else where performance is measured by the layers of bureaucracy established. They are the modern metrosexuals who are afraid of flies and mosquitos and would let Rome burn to the ground while they come up with some consensus driven procedure to save it. Getting rid of them from our government is exactly what we mean when we say “drain the swamp.” If that is the best that Adam Schiff can do given all the resources he has extracted from taxpayers to do it, its pretty pathetic.

I mention the legal scenario of acting as one’s own attorney because I’ve seen this kind of arrogance plenty of times from this class of loser people. They think they have some information that they’ve read from a book, some boon like Prometheus might have obtained in gaining fire from the sun to return it back to earth after Zeus had hid it away. They don’t expect to encounter someone who can read more than them, experience more than them and is smarter than them. Their understanding of the law is formed within the Bar Association and the rules of conduct that they utilize. So anyone outside of that little clan they think of as ignorant, leaving them baseless to deal with reality when confronted. I find it enjoyable to stumble such arrogant people within their professional efforts because their intent is always malicious, even if they hide them behind good deeds. Their malice for effort is easy to exploit because their true philosophy in life isn’t a joy in intellect, it is through group association that doesn’t raise the bar for their personal performance, it just lowers it to uncover a laziness that they are so good at hiding that they don’t even see it in themselves.

Bureaucrats are the creation of this social veil because as timid souls they must conceal their lack of achievement by looting off people who do things so that they can share ownership. That is the entire root of their entire existence. They think that by getting some degree in college and reading a few books here and there that they can have the right to make important decisions, yet when they find out that they aren’t the smartest people in the room, it destroys their basic grip on reality. So long as they belong to some unique guild, like the Bar Association, they can hide behind that veil and they can trick people into respecting them. But once you learn its all a farce, as I learned very young by getting into so much trouble that I had gone to court more times than years on my age by double, the patterns of deceit are clear to see. And it was easy to see at that impeachment hearing by the dubious Adam Schiff. You would think that an attempted coup by a Democrat in congress would have smarter people involved, some ultimate movie villain that we see often on the silver screen. But much to our disappointment, in reality, these villains are just stupid professional nerds who gained their notoriety in life by boot licking and claim jumping. And while under pressure, they fold every time.

It was always clear to me, but now it should be clear to everyone else that the hatred of President Trump spawns from his competency in rooting out losers like Adam Schiff. Not that it was a malicious deed by the president but it always happens when a competent person of experience meets a professional nerd who are the come lately thieves who steal away the achievement of those who came before them and actually build a career off that effort by putting rules and regulations between them and their targets. A guy like Trump who has spent a lifetime taking risks and enjoying the winnings has exploited this ruse just by his election, and his actions throughout the years he’s been in office have further confirmed that all along it wasn’t some special sauce of leadership coming out of West Point, or the most elite Ivy League schools that makes a great president, its guts, and experience that do, which has shattered the world of the professional nerd. Anytime you want to see it and some lawyer demands action from you within a court of law, you’ll see them melt when they learn that you know their secret language meant to hide their incompetence—and that you aren’t a member of the Bar Association, or of congress.

Much of the testimony provided in the hearing on impeachment was of the nature of dissidents who were upset that Trump did not need them to perform his job. Normally, consultants are brought in to advise a president, but being a man of action, Trump doesn’t need them, so they have played along with this Adam Schiff attack willingly in hopes that the professional nerds could resume their ruse through impeachment. Their hatred for Trump is the same hatred that their type always has for people of achievement. While they need such people more than they need food and water, they secretly resent them because the dependence is so one sided, especially when it is put on trial. They need their victims to thank them for looting them with big words and obscure terminology that they have studied all their lives. What the professional nerds are terrified of is that the people they deal with don’t seek their counsel or interpretations but act anyway on their own such has Trump has. He hasn’t needed the generals, the advisors, and all the other professional nerds which has left them standing around waiting for someone to acknowledge them. And before people learn how useless they truly are they are trying to impeach President Trump so to preserve themselves for the future.

But its too late. It has been for me for many years now. I learned early in my life thankfully just how useless these people are. And now everyone can see it. Yet even I am a little disappointed that Adam Schiff couldn’t put on a better show than what he did. As a looter he clearly depends 100% off others for his sustenance and when he is forced to do anything on his own merit, he fails. He certainly did fail on the impeachment trial, which was clear on day one. Its not just a partisan interpretation of the events, it’s the accurate observation, and reminder that professional nerds have built up a scandal that was concealed so long as people never asked questions of them. They needed the exchange to be one sided only and when it wasn’t, they fail every single time.

A Review of The Mandalorian: Boys never wanted the girls to invade their tree house.

There is no impeachment, even though that is the news of the day. All there is or ever was regarding the attempts of the Democrat controlled congress to attempt to get rid of President Trump is a frustrated attempt to manipulate the law in an effort to avoid their perilous fate of a 2020 loss even more embarrassing than over the past two elections. And my resolve is not to care too much about it unless they try to remove my president from his elected office, where I will then grab whatever volunteers are needed to defend him with the Second Amendment from those villains that have infected our government. Its that simple. No further commentary needed. Meanwhile, and I was glad for the options, Disney+ opened this week and we were all finally able to watch the new Star Wars show, The Mandalorian and let me just say this, it was fantastic.

I also say that for me visiting any story within the Star Wars experience is like a vacation for me. To understand that I’d refer to a recent article I wrote on the value of thinking like a 12-year-old. Children think in big, broad terms with solutions in focus and are not restricted on how to create the questions that might complete such a journey, so I see great value in it. The adult world would say that such a way of thinking is immature, but then look at their lives. They are heavy on burdens with limited options to deal with them, and their lives are most of the time a complete disaster. Nobody should listen to them under the best of circumstances. Star Wars was never meant for adults, but specifically for boys between the ages of 7 to 12. Of course, Disney wants to reach out to girls and older audiences if it can get them, but Star Wars as we have always known it was geared toward the problems of young boys. Visiting that way of thinking has always been fun for me because I like to explore lots of options with infinite optimism, and when everything fails in the real world, Star Wars has always been a place that values those sentiments.

As I have pointed out the new Disney owned Star Wars has not been as good. It’s been like that moment when all the young boys had a boys only tree house and the girls found out about it and wanted to join in. To be nice the boys let them but started grumbling when the girls brought with them dolls, cooking utensils and brooms to replace the guns, knives and acts of war of the boys. And instead of play fighting the boys found themselves talking about raising families and the difficulties of getting to the store, and they were noticeably upset about it. Under Disney, Star Wars became less about war and more about social justice and the skin color of the actors, and it became just boring. The Mandalorian much to my delight was made for the boys. Girls of course are invited, but the show was certainly an attempt to put Star Wars back to what it does best, and I think it exceeded at that.

The key to understanding big issues, such as this impeachment fiasco is in thinking without all the constraints that most adults learn to live with, and within Star Wars stories where big concepts are always at the front of discussion as we are talking essentially about the problems of a type 3 civilization, one that can use the power and resources of an entire galaxy yet have all the challenges of our present condition, it helps put the mind at play to behold the concepts. While most adults scratch their heads and attempt to put whatever the context of the modern problem is, such as the perplexity of the current congress to even attempt impeachment. That is because the reality of the present circumstances do not fit the adult assumptions of our understanding, which is precisely what the villains of modern government are counting on. To understand their game, you have to pull back your vision enough to play with various thoughts so that the true intention can only then be seen.

Such lofty thoughts are certainly at play in The Mandalorian, which was a nice science fiction/spaghetti western platform to tell some very interesting stories from. It was energetic and reminded me a lot of many Clint Eastwood westerns, everything from For A Few Dollars More to The Outlaw Josey Wales. It was fun and remarkably girl free. Not that girls are a problem. But the focus of The Mandalorian is being faster on the draw, not whether or not he cooks breakfast for his wife. I was a little shocked reading the most recent Star Wars book Resistance Reborn, which sets up directly the events of the next Star Wars film Rise of Skywalker, that the old hero Wedge Antilles was cooking breakfast when pilots arrive to recruit him back into the fight. Its not that cooking is a big deal, but the book was written by a woman and women think differently about things than boys. Wedge was a great warrior of the rebellion, yet the focus of his efforts was on cooking. Not something boys are naturally concerned with. That’s what I have been talking about with Star Wars with girls inviting the tree house of thought the boys would otherwise prefer to be in.

This is also why women are so easily tricked in politics, because their concerns are so quickly trapped by political theater and their natural predilection is not to fight, but to conform. When you can fight back against oppression, you tend not to find ways to live with it, and at the heart of Star Wars is that premise. Girls are invited, but its clearly a boy concept, and with The Mandalorian, that is clearly what is happening and its good to see that Lucasfilm can still reach that place even after so many progressive missteps toward social justice. Yet in other reviews about The Mandalorian the value of the largely female reviewers was that they thought it was great that the male leads in the show were from diverse backgrounds, one black, one Latino. I personally don’t care as long as somebody is shooting someone else. Its not about being white male that attracts me to a plot line, it’s the body count and the kind of guns they used. To get to the big ideas of anything the main character needs to be over the primal fears of a herd, and with women, they typically are trying to live with the world, not trying to change it.

Concerns about cooking, and feelings about things are not the natural state of boys. But overcoming problems and oppression are, and The Mandalorian certainly put its focus on those items. So, it’s the perfect entertainment to divert too while in real life congress is attempting to perform the worst scandal in human history. The goal is not to live with the consequences of that endeavor but to fight back against it. Star Wars was always about saying no to complacency and endeavoring for real change, not concerns of docile domestication, but in saving the galaxy from itself in spite of itself. And watching The Mandalorian it showed that the makers of Star Wars still understand what that looks like, and I’m looking forward to a lot more.

The Louisville Toll Bridge Scam: Who it really hurts and why bringing it to Cincinnati would be a disaster

There is a bridge extending from Louisville over into Indiana that is part of the 1-65 highway system managed by RiverLink, which is a toll collector that has been very controversial. I was quite surprised to learn after going across that bridge a few times to visit destinations on both sides of the Ohio River that I received a bill in the mail after cameras photographed my license plate demanding payment for a bridge that did not have the traditional toll signs that we have all come to expect from such toll collecting activities. I wrote an article about it which continues to be one of my most popular. It has many tens of thousands of impressions since I wrote it a few years ago, including from RiverLink which attempted to defend their poor signage and toll collecting practices. That article can be found at the link below along with the many comments from people inspired to contribute their thoughts.

https://overmanwarrior.blog/2018/01/21/the-river-link-scam-louisvilles-theft-of-the-innocent-through-a-toll-bridge-to-depraved-economic-activity-in-clarksville/#comment-63440

I don’t get many comments, not because people aren’t reading, but usually because the nature of my content is not conducive to it, and just like in any classroom setting, the audience does not feel comfortable raising their hand first. Once a few people do string together some thoughts, more join in, but most of the time, reader engagement is low due to the nature of my content. But occasionally a contributor like Christina chimes in, seen below, and the true scope of the issue comes into focus. I present it here as she wrote it. She is obviously upset and the sentence structure and emphasis show that. Essentially she represents why RiverLink is a massive scam created by stupid politicians who wasted the money we gave them on everything but what they should have, and they’ve passed on their incompetence onto this bridge for people like Christina to fund out of desperation and massive amounts of inconvenience. In her case, such as many other stories of people who move onto one side of the river and may not know about the toll bridge, but simply need to get to the other side to get to a job, they could unknowingly rack up many hundreds if not thousands of dollars before they get their first bill in the mail. And it does cause them a lot of pain, which is the nature of her comment.

are you SERIOUS? i ONLY went across the bridge to go to work to feed my family!!!!!!!! yes i know that i owe them money and i was paying them what i could but then the charges got bigger and BIGGER! i was charged a total of $170 in fines just to send me a BILL!!!!!! now they have a lean on my car because i can not afford to pay them $511.40 that i KNOW I DO NOT OWE! THEY HAVE SENT ME OTHER PEOPLES BILLS AND HAVE CHARGED ME WHEN I WAS HOME AND NEVER WENT ACROSS THE BRIDGE!!!!!! not only that but i find out that you not only get charged when you go across the bridge but if you take exit 0 you are charged TWICE BECAUSE RIVER LINK “SAY’S” THAT IS ANOTHER BRIDGE!!!!!! HOW IS THE HELL IS AND EXIT A BRIDGE????? now i am screwed because i can not get tags on my car because they out a lean on it, and when i called to ask to make payments they said quote “MUST BE PAID IN FULL” then when i called a few months later i was told that i could have been making payment’s and when i asked why the other person said that i could not make payments she said IT IS NOT THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO LET US KNOW THAT! IF WE DON’T ASK THEY DON’T TELL. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TOLD BY THE SUPERVISOR!!! THIS IS WRONG!!!!! PEOPLE LIKE ME THAT WORK PAY CHECK TO PAY CHECK AND DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE PAY THE BILLS TAKE CARE OF THEIR KIDS SHOULD NOT BE DONE THIS WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this bridge was paid off a long time ago and we SHOULD NOT HAVE TO KEEP PAYING TO CROSS IT! AND THEN YOU GET CHARGED NOT ONCE BUT TWICE BECAUSE YOU TAKE EXIT 0????? THIS NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH AND FAST! NOW I HAVE TO DRIVE ILLEGAL UNTIL I CAN PAY OFF RIVER LINK SO I CAN GET TAGS ON THE CAR I WORKED SO HARD FOR AND IS PAID OFF JUST TO GET TAGS AND INSURANCE!!!!!!!!

THEY NEED TO HELP PEOPLE LIKE ME THAT WAS JUST GOING TO WORK TO FEED THEIR FAMILY AND NOT OVER CHARGE ME SEND ME LATE FEES THEN PUT A LEAN ON MY CAR! AND I TRIED TO PAY THEM IN PAYMENTS AND WAS TOLD “NO” THEN WHEN I CALLED A FEW MONTHS LATER WAS TOLD I COULD HAVE MADE PAYMENTS AND WHEN I ASKED WHY THE PREVIOUS LADY SAID THAT I COULD NOT MAKE PAYMENTS THE “SUPERVISOR” SAID I QUOTE “IT’S NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO TELL YOU, YOU SHOULD HAVE ASKED” ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

I was upset in a similar way over a $19 charge, much less than what she has gone through. It wasn’t the money; it was the silent intrusion into my mailbox that really pissed me off. That some cowardly collection agency just took a picture of my license plate and could bill me from behind some computer somewhere was revolting. It makes me wonder how many Christians are out there going through the same thing for the same reasons. RiverLink will say that they have up signs and that people should know that they are using a toll bridge. But for people unfamiliar with the area just trying to make sure they are on the right road, it would be easy to make the mistake of staying on that road until you cross over into the other side of the river, where it would then be too late. I think it represents the worst of the mismanagement of highway funds and politics in general, and just like Chicago, the tolls will likely continue far into the future as a money racket that is intended for oversized union pensions and other wasted dollars spend on worthless government employees.

It concerned me because I do travel to Louisville a lot and it bothers me that something so corrupt is so close to my home in Cincinnati. But even worse, politicians on both sides of the Ohio River in Cincinnati are looking to do the same thing to pay for the I-75 bridge replacement that is projected there. The corruption is migrating, and politicians are intent to provide the same type of RiverLInk scam in Cincinnati. I remember in the 90s when Cincinnati was building more bridges than they needed just to use up highway funds that were in the bank, yet 30 years later nobody can come up with the money to provide a badly needed bridge replacement on one of the busiest highway arteries in the nation. With the amount of money that we do pay in taxes, the money for a new bridge should be there, we shouldn’t have to fund bridges with these toll roads. If government wants to lower taxes, then maybe we can talk about tolls, but at this level of taxation, its just another tax on us all collected in a different way, behind some cowardly camera by lazy trolls. And the cost of that stupidity isn’t just economic, it hurts people like Christina much more than anybody, and that pain comes straight out of political mismanagement and bad fiscal planning. It certainly isn’t fair to the population in general.

The Value of Thinking like a 12-Year-Old: How we should improve our education system

Every time I do a bunch of education articles, such as I did recently for the election of 2019 critics write me and ask me for what solution I would support since I think that the current public education system is so screwed up. I often say these days that I think kids would be better off living in the woods without a public education classroom if the goal for them was to get smarter rather than sticking with what we have now. Government schools are so dysfunctional that they really should be considered a menace. For as much time and money that we put into the education of children too many of them enter adulthood ill prepared for the reality which should tell us everything we need to know. Therefore, people who are critical of me are only upset that I bring it up. But to answer their question, lets get to the basic foundation of the problem.

Recently I was reviewing some 3P techniques for a project I’m working on, its one of those Lean applications that are part of the long evolution of the Toyota systems research that has been going on for a long time yet has had lots of trouble taking root in the United States. That is actually the subject of a new book I’m working on called The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business. I’m not willing to throw the baby out with the bathwater like many might be willing to do, but we do need to understand why these things tend to work in Japan and China and not in the United States. Or do they really work at all, or is the key really just naturally engaged employees. And if so, then why are they engaged while others aren’t? I have it all worked out, but explaining it to people who are functioning from the wrong definitions of things is a bit more of a challenge. To be blunt, our public educations have taught our entire society all the wrong things and now we have a mess to clean up that will take centuries. So we might as well start somewhere.

The meaning of life is not to be born, learn how to read, write and perform rational thought only to throw all that out the window at puberty to get a mate, have sex, pop out a few kids then gradually die as the flower of our bodies wilt away into old age where even the universe spits at us once we’ve passed the years of reproduction. All that is wrong—and that is the basic pattern of understanding around the world of the cycles of life. Rather, we are born, we are given the opportunity to learn all we can before we are on the clock of responsibility, and we spend the rest of our lives functioning from what is left of that perfect period of childhood that we all have an opportunity to experience. However, most people don’t get such great childhoods and they grow up and into bitter adults who can’t problem solve their way out of a paper bag and end up intellectually crippled for life.

We should look at childhood as one of our highest states of consciousness and figure out why we are trying so hard as a civilization to grow up and away from this outlook. On that recent 3P investigation one of the key takeaways was that the classroom participants were told that they needed to reconnect with their 12-year-old self, because it was at this time that most of us were still open minded about problem solving and generally thinking outside the box. And that is the case with most children, they all start off pretty equal. As open books on brain development they all learn along a similar path and with great optimism. Just look at the kind of books that we provide to children seen at any bookstore. They are full of colors and positive images meant to inspire next step learning, to lure them to good new things to think about rather than boring, stagnant images. Then kids hit puberty, public schools are trying to teach sex in the fourth grade and earlier these days, and once kids are told that sex is their primary function and their social status within the classroom culture will determine who they get to mate with, that person begins a long decline that lasts the rest of their lives, and it is very tragic.

The 3P people observed from the Toyota culture in Japan that they are a playful people, and this is obvious while at the Tokyo airport. The billboard colors there are very positive and even their television in Japan is very childlike, meaning its experimental and positive about most everything. It has taken the Lean community many years of western thinking to get close to unlocking the real secrets of the Toyota culture. Its not just that they are organized and engaged in Japan, but that they don’t get hung up on silly stuff, they are much more like children than what we’d call adults in America. Children will try things and play with ideas where adults usually try to bend reality to their mode of thinking. Whatever it is that they learned and whoever they learned it from tends to limit the western mind rather than unleash it toward continued growth or at least sustaining what they were when they were children.

This is why I see so much positive growth in the geek culture in America where adults go to science fiction conventions dressed in cosplay and have fun going to midnight movies and making amusement parks part of their lifestyles. It’s the Peter Pan lesson of the approach that Tom Hanks showed in the movie Big where an actual kid was very successful in business because he thought like a child. We have been thinking about this problem for a long time, but still what holds us back is this assumption that by growing up we are supposed to get rid of our childhoods rather than trying to have the best one possible then carrying those memories throughout our entire life with the fuel to sustain us. The way we approach things now we empty ourselves of everything we built until puberty then seek to throw it all away so we can join some lifecycle mating custom that essentially ends by the time we are all aged 30. There is a lot of life to live after that age but most of us just don’t know what to do with ourselves so the gradual decline begins and we find ourselves stagnant and ineffective for the rest of our lives.

Our education system should be looking to make an Einstein out of every young mind. By the time kids leave the 12th grade if they maintained the rate of learning that they did up until around age 10, we should have lots of geniuses running around doing great things. Instead we end up with a bunch of flat thinkers who have to be told as 40 and 50 year olds that they need to reconnect with their 12-year-old selves so they can be effective at their jobs. If I had a nickel for every time someone told me to grow up, I’d have a lot of nickels. Many millions worth. But I’ve always bulked at that notion and am very happy to say that I never stopped thinking like a 12-year-old. Ever. I have always viewed the typical definition of adulthood as a loss of something valuable that we had as children but lost too soon in a premature death. So I’ve held onto mine as a treasure and that has certainly helped me in life be much more effective than in embracing the traditional trajectory of the aging process. And we do need to fix that notion. If our education system started looking at children as the highest level of thought out of the starting gate and could harness that energy instead of seeking to destroy it, I would feel differently. Until then, I’m dead set against the modern concepts of education, because they are not sufficient enough, and do not teach the right things.

The Tyranny of Safety: Fortune favors the bold and reckless as the foundation of innovation

With all the election coverage that really was needed recently, I didn’t have time to work through some of the concepts that I care about a great deal, which are being flushed out in my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, so for the next couple of these I promised myself to make some time. When I write about things here, usually its due to my understanding of a needed change agency impasse. If a concept isn’t introduced that is key to a greater thought, then any potential audience might miss it. So you need to start early on these things, especially if the concept is truly revolutionary and contrary to contemporary thought. One of those things is the false nature that safety is what everyone is looking for, and that compliance to that culture is the only way to function. Quite the opposite, even in business where safety is always being leveraged against, fortune favors the bold and unsafe in ways that are keys to any successful culture. And those who are timid usually attempt to create rules of safety to preserve themselves for that inevitability. Safety is not a state we should all yearn for, its rather the shield that the timid use to hide their own aversion to the rules of the universe.

I’m speaking from experience; I have never done anything in my life that might be considered “safe.” Rather, I have lived an extremely reckless life and always when I start to get too comfortable, I always end up doing something on the deep end of crazy to keep myself honest. And that was not to sabotage psychologically some level of success, but rather an understanding of how the true pulse of the universe really works. I have been talking about words that are normally associated with me such as “respectable.” Well, another is Teflon, many have wondered over the years why I have not ended up in jail to rot away in solitary confinement instead of being something of a respectable character, no matter what sort of path of destruction has ended up running in my wake. The reason that such controversy and reckless abandon has not stuck to me is not due to some magical Teflon help, but rather in the nature of life itself, where fortune favors the bold, and the observers in life who do preserve safety over treasure tend to always cheer on those willing to do what they are not.

It was easy for me to make this observation because I never wanted to be a normal human being, rather I endeavored to be a stunt man or daredevil. That was in fact my very first inkling for a career that went back beyond kindergarten. As a kid I would jump out of any tree, ride a bike through any obstacle and my heroes that I most looked up to were not people associated with my very nice and structured family, they were daredevils like Eval Knieval and escape artists like Harry Houdini. As a child I noticed very early, even when going to the circus that people who did things like stick their head into a lion’s mouth or walked on a tight rope without nets or harnesses below them were the ones that people clapped for. Part of them wanted to see a human being spit in the face of danger. Its not that they rooted for the big crash, or the death by a crazed animal, its that they wanted to see someone overcome the natural fears we all have so that innovation of some kind could come from the result.

This is another reason that a concept like communism and socialism are so reprehensible. They may be attractive to the type of people who fill an audience. People watching dangerous things do want the safety of observation. Yet when a society penalizes a tight rope walker with helmets and support ropes, the magic of the challenge is diminished tremendously. That’s why communist and socialist countries don’t tend to produce the kind of people who jump motorcycles over fountains in Las Vegas or to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel. A society that is full of an audience but no show to watch becomes stagnant and boring, and eventually fails as a culture. However, when people are free to think and push the limits of their culture, we find that it flourishes in ways that cause great growth, and this is certainly the case in businesses of all kinds.

People are much more forgiving of a tight rope walker who almost falls and has to catch themselves from hitting the ground with an imperfect show because the attempt itself is what they really want to see. They will forgive Sea World for the occasional Orca attack that kills the whale trainers because the point of the show was to demonstrate mastery over the primal instincts of a wild animal. Without the show, the antics of a whale eating, mating and just swimming around are pretty boring. The audiences of life want to see somebody risking something, because they are too timid to do such things in life. But they do love to see other people doing it.

Whether in the court room, the board room, or even at the stock exchange, fortune favors the bold and playfully reckless. Owners of businesses who can’t afford to lose everything they have worked so hard for truly appreciate those like Harry Houdini who will throw chains upon themselves and be submerged underwater with the lid locked shut and only two minutes to hold their breath to attempt to escape before a massive bomb goes off on stage while the audience watches in horror. In all the books there are on business, and specifically program management they instruct their readers to mitigate risk and to run from it into the audience where everyone else is sitting. But talk to any finance person over lunch as they talk about how they want you to mitigate risk and protect the money they are lending you, they’ll also be the first ones to sit in the first row of a show where a daredevil will challenge death itself to lighten up the content of their boring day. They say they want a safe world, but they are the first to indicate they know daredevils are what make them money. Playing it safe in the back row doesn’t get any endeavor there, somewhere along the line of any investment a daredevil is needed to sign on the dotted line and take the plunge to perform under pressure or else.

Most of the rules of society are built for the timid, so not to hurt their feelings that they are not one of those daredevil types in an attempt to make the world appear more equal. The more we have explored socialism in our own culture, the more willing we have been to put safety helmets on our children as they ride their bicycles and listen to every warning label an insurance company gives us so that they won’t have to pay a costly payout when some kid breaks their arm falling off the roof of their house. But making children overly safe, we have also killed in them the daring percentage who will make it into adulthood fearless of the real performances the human race wants to see, and we end up with a bunch of people sitting in the audience waiting for a good show, but no Harry Houdini strapped in chains upside down in a vault of water. We want to see someone overcome such things and in all things that we consider successful and respectable, we have some nature of a daredevil there to show us that something can be done. This trait is useful in asking a member of the opposite sex out for a date, which for many people is very difficult, or in landing a big business deal against all odds where a lot of time, money, and people’s jobs are at great risk. People want to know that you are so confident in your craft that you will walk the tight rope without fearing falling because you are so good. They want to know that you aren’t afraid, because they are and they like knowing that you don’t wear a helmet because you don’t fear crashing. Those who cleave to safety are those sitting in the audience waiting to see that somebody can overcome death and worse to achieve something. And once they see it for themselves, they can then possibly not be ruled by fear, but can rather live more freely than otherwise would have been possible and to get more out of life than was previously thought.

Impeachment isn’t an Option: Defending the President with violance if it comes to it

In all parts of my life I would have to say that I am a highly respected person, very highly educated and in all manners of it, an example for everyone to follow. The word influence leader is tossed around a lot in the content of my interactions, and at a high level. Most of my best friends these days are very wealthy and also extremely respected. Yet I would say that my personality that writes these articles on this blog site is every bit me on a plate, and even when the talk turns toward aggressive corrective action, that is certainly not out of character for me. I say all that for context because when it comes to President Trump, I love the guy because he has been willing to take the fight to the enemy in a way that I have for years, and I know it’s a pain for him. He and his family could be enjoying so many other things in their life rather than dealing with the losers of the swamp. And so could I. Prior to these political days I routinely spoke to people in Hollywood working in the business and one of my targeted career tracks was to have my written works published by big time publishers on the shelves of Barnes & Noble. Obviously by my work on this blog, I had planned to write more books than Stephen King, George R.R. Martin, or J. K. Rolling and to be more successful. But I saw where the country was in the years of 2005 to 2010 and I joined the Tea Party movement to fix it, and that is very much my stance today.

The premise of my decision is to fight back against several levels of thought that are essentially trying to destroy America, and that is the notion that other people make you who you are rather than you make yourself. Our education system teaches us that other people make or break you, yet our Constitution is designed to unleash individual talent so that you can be anybody you want to be, and sometimes that means you have to go off the rails in spite of what the social norms allow. Such an example for me was talking to publishers in New York about my second book called Tail of the Dragon. I had been nurturing several large talent agencies toward my work the way many writers did and when they looked up my website at the time and saw that I was a Tea Party supporter—openly, that was the deal breaker. Of course, my response was to point out the many leftists writers such as Stephen King and J.K. Rolling who were openly liberal and why the same rules of social edit didn’t apply to them and the answer I received was obvious. All the big publishing houses and corporate media markets were dedicated to all out global socialism and if I wanted to be in the game, I’d have to adapt. Well, that’s not how or why I do anything. So I turned away from that business I loved so much and went into another direction. I of course still write, but I do it for myself as opposed to the mandates of other people.

So anybody reading can imagine what I might say or do in relation to this impeachment inquiry on President Trump and why some of my writing has turned scary at times. Based on the standards that Democrats are creating for impeachment, essentially because they can’t beat President Trump in an election and all their internal polling says so, this is the only way they can have a shot for the White House for the next 12 years at least. (4 more years of Donald J. Trump, then (8 years of Don Jr. I’d place a bet on that one right now) So Democrats due to their ideas being goofy already are turning to law breaking and true piracy to attempt to get their people in power and I’m not OK with it. I can be successful at anything I put my hands on. What I get and do in life is not up to other people. I could go work at a root beer stand tomorrow and within a few months I could make it all very successful and the people associated with it very wealthy. I have no reservation about protecting the president I elected from an obvious coup by government employees who have rigged our system to their personal advantage and using the Constitution to justify the behavior. What they have been doing, the government employees whether we are talking about our local union ran schoolteachers, or our CIA and FBI agents who have been hostile to our 2016 election and are asking for an ass kicking. I put more value on the ass kicking than in any ass kissing that most of the business community believes they must do just to stay in business due to massive government corruption. I believe in that notion so strongly that I have made life decisions already to follow that line of thought. Nothing anybody says at this point is going to change anything. Trump is my guy, I voted for him to fix this mess, which he has been doing a good job, and I’m not going to sit by and just allow a bunch of losers who did cause a lot of expensive problems for us to deal with get away with it.

Its not unusual for me to lend my thoughts to local issues and people I think will help a situation. And I’m not worried about letting villains know what I think of them. I don’t like being lied to and I certainly don’t take threats to my life in any way lightly. I have come to know that threats of either violence or even social ostracizing is all these enemies of America have to fight with and for that they have come to think they are running the world. I didn’t put up with it when I was a kid, or as I was coming up in life and learning what worked and what didn’t. I certainly saw it in the entertainment industry where they would clamor over every email you send them, and lunch meetings, to complete alienation once they learn that you are a conservative. And it doesn’t work presently in any capacity because the truth is, they don’t make people, they need people who are successful to loot off of, and that is the dirty little secret they are terrified people will discover about them, and I’m not shy to let them know I know it. However, the big national and international issues are what I’m most interested in talking about and this impeachment talk is truly the biggest story that needs to be covered. It is amazingly arrogant to watch Democrats attempt to overthrow an election during an election year and sell it back to us as some kind of legal purity. It’s the biggest farce I’ve ever seen and I am prepared to turn to violence to protect the president I elected, and many others. Getting along with other people isn’t nearly as important to me as in doing right, and right in our “republic,” not some socialist democracy, is determined by elections and without that basic premise, we have nothing anyway. So why not fight for it with spilled blood and a lot of carnage? That’s how we got it in the first place and I’m thinking that in the end, that’s all those insurgents will understand. It wouldn’t be my first choice, but based on my own history, what other outcome would there be if that other side refuses to listen and honor our laws? I’d say they already made their choice.

The Alleged Whistleblower, Beta Boy Eric Ciaramella: It’s all about the ‘Structural Ambiguity in the Georgian Verbal Noun’

It’s not that the alleged whistleblower’s name is Eric Ciaramella, a CIA analyst specific to the Ukraine issue that we should all wonder about, but its his ridiculously presumptuous paper he wrote for Harvard University titled the ‘Structural Ambiguity in the Georgian Verbal Noun.’ Anybody who can make that much fuss over a “noun” in a “Georgian” context is a person who can make a mountain out of a mole hill on any topic, and shouldn’t be employed by any of us to defend our country from bad guys. If this little kid is the kind of people that our government is hiring to defend the world from turmoil, we’re all in a lot more trouble than his role along with his lawyer Mark Zaid, in performing an attempted coup of the American presidency. Ciarmella essentially is the ultimate metro sexual beta male that is so common these days who fight everything with a passive aggressive sissy slap from behind the biggest rock they can find. After reading that academic paper its no wonder he found Trump’s words so disturbing. He would have said the same thing about the way Trump orders food at McDonald’s. The problem isn’t Trump threatening any leadership of Ukraine over an investigation into the corruption of Joe Biden, a political rival. It’s that Trump exists as an alpha male that disrupted the sensibilities of this very soft natured little boy. At only 33 years of age, the kid has barely hatched, yet he is doomed to a life of betahood and lonely nights from women who don’t find such creatures very attractive or good bed mates.

Eric Ciaramella Wiki, Age, Wife, Biography (CIA) Family & More

The name of Ciaramella has been floating around for weeks, and to me he wasn’t relevant, so I didn’t care enough to do an article on it. However, due to the attempts to keep his name covered for all kinds of mysterious reasons, the longer it has gone on, the angrier I have become over the issue. It always bothers me to see the sissified beta males that colleges are producing these days, especially at Harvard attempting to be tough guys in business and politics with passive aggressive games due to their timid natures which is certainly the case with Ciaramella. I would encourage anybody to look up his Harvard paper by the title indicated here and read for yourself the kind of people the CIA values, then it will become clear why they hire such losers, and why they hate Trump in the deep state so much. Why they show up in the early hours of the morning to arrest Roger Stone as CNN was tipped off and filming the whole incident. Or even why so many members of congress want to impeach Trump for doing nothing more than winning an election. Ciaramella is from the same age group as my children, and it is they who came up through the public education system of “everybody gets a trophy,” and the world will think you’re smart if you can have a debate about the use of a noun.

In any other time in the history of mankind the values of valor would have been in how much you could bench press, how far you could hit a golf ball, hit a target with a gun, or out punch the other guy in a fist fight. Ciaramella is from the age where all that kind of maleness was attacked by our public-school system, so the kid entered the world looking to succeed with those parameters of measure taken away, and replaced in stead with pencil pushers and bureaucrats. Without question this Ciaramella kid would be rattled by the sound of the booming Trump voice talking to a goldfish let alone a world leader. But that is precisely why Trump has been successful, because no matter what passive liberals from the far left education institutions like Harvard want to think, biology matters and the means of human interaction will always hold true. They can’t change the rules to fit their timid personalities, which is what the whole impeachment attempt truly is against Trump. It’s a coup against maleness, for which Trump is a fine representative for the human race. Those against him have been trying to change that trait and they are frustrated that it is making a comeback under his administration erasing years of progressive effort to the contrary.

I think we all feel a little sorry for such timid kids as this Eric Ciaramella fellow. Looking over his life it is obvious that he was a timid soul that the leftist educators wanted as their future. Most people like him, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to learn that he had no strong male figure in his life, use the rules of academia to replace the traditional roles of manhood into a context that has all but destroyed that entire generation, and the Beltway politics along with the media are hell bent to preserve. They want to use this timid person to overthrow maleness and to eradicate it from the earth so that they can have their illusion of supremacy by hiding behind big words in overly complicated Harvard academic papers that only the worst leftist on earth would find valuable, or even enchanting. No wonder Ciaramella isn’t yet married. Who would want to?

But on a more serious note, these types of people are obviously what the CIA and FBI are hiring and find valuable, so its no wonder they are actively working to overthrow the elections the rest of us are engaged in. They don’t see their roles as protecting our nation from the bad guys, they see us as the bad guys, and they want to remake our nation into something that resembles their mode of thinking. It really comes down to what we define maleness as and how that translates to the kind of typical American that makes up our population and character. Do we judge maleness as the beta males do, as sissy slapping intellects who fuss over a latté the nature of a noun in human language, or some brawny men who have pumped up their biceps in their spare time to attract females who replace engines in their cars on the weekends and drive their monster trucks to the gun range to shoot a few rounds before capping off the night with a few beers. The deep state isn’t just attacking Trump because they hate his maleness, but those of us who elected him so that they don’t have to face the facts that the world they were taught would welcome them with open arms still thinks of them as wimps and speed bumps on the ways to the next sexual victory. Chicks aren’t going to be lining up to sleep with guys like Eric Ciaramella. They will always fall for the guy in the Lamborghini with the expensive suit and fat wallet, made that way from many conquests garnered in business.

The political left didn’t want to hide Ciaramella as the whistleblower for his own protection, but for their own. Once normal Americans, men and women learned that this kid was just another wimp produced by our public education system trying to be a big shot off the government dole, they knew their case would fly right out the window. The credibility for their attempts to impeach President Trump would fall flat, as is obviously happening as we speak. With the holidays coming up, the calendar isn’t working toward the favor of House Democrats. Soon they will be in their own primary season and any impeachment attempts will be very distracting to their own efforts. So they needed this kid to look meaner and tougher than he was. Once people learned that Ciaramella was just another metro sexual loser, they’d lose interest and move on. Which is where we find ourselves today. However, what should make all of us angry is that these types of people are trying to take over our system of government, and in a lot of ways already have. We just didn’t know what kind of people the CIA was hiring. But now we do, and its less than impressive.
