Public Education is the Primary Cause of School Shootings: Aligning responsiblity with the desires of the human race

Think about what we are dealing with here, a kid who was nineteen years of age who had just shot up a bunch of his former classmates at a south Florida public school, visited a restaurant at a local Wal-Mart, then a McDonald’s calmly trying to get away from the crime. Luckily, he was arrested before he had a chance to do more damage. He was able to inflict so much carnage and fear without a single cop to confront him, not even the armed designated protector who was supposed to be protecting the school he just assaulted. That person was nowhere to be found. And the first, and really only thing liberals want to talk about is gun control instead of the real root cause of the problem which they are largely a major part of helping to create. The little 5’ 7” Nikolas Cruz one year suspended from that same school Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida had been rejected from the education system that assumed it could do everything for kids such as this. In a lot of ways, Cruz is the perfect example of what public schools assume they can do, but always fail, and that is to be substitutes for parental guidance. Here was a kid who had lost both of his known parents bringing a lot of trouble to Cruz’s young mind and when he needed the school most, they expelled him sending him into the world intellectually defenseless. The kid lived in a very diverse community yet he became an unapologetic racist only to fume in anger to such a boiling point that he made a conscious decision to shoot up the same school that had caused him so much pain and liberals want to take away guns so that kids such as this don’t have that option to discharge their anger. Liberals are so stupid and emotionally driven that they just don’t comprehend that it was they who created the personality of Nikolas Cruz in the first place and that guns or not, people are going to get hurt when they are forced to interact with the failures of their public education system.

I wasn’t happy at all with what I saw in the moments after the shooting, which was a bunch of kids and teachers hiding in every corner of the building like sheep waiting to be slaughtered. Then the police storming the building like petrified authoritarians telling all these compliant little public education products to put away their cell phones and to march single file out into the parking lot where they would be frisked like criminals and embarrassed beyond reason. In the aftermath many of those same students would go on news programs and talk about their experience with such great emotion that the networks soaked up the good television that the tragedy provoked in their viewership. There was lots of talk about loses, and broken hearts, and the terror of the moment—but nobody did anything to talk about the primary problem of these liberal institutions that had created the mess in the first place—a system that produces so many compliant kiss ass kids that use peer pressure to instigate behavioral changes, and when a certain percentage of their population which they call “loners” refuse to comply and fall through the cracks they have no answer for what they’ve sent out into the world to be a menace to us all. They simply blame the guns, not the minds they ruined in the process.

Like many people watching the drama unfold on television my wife and I talked about what we were seeing. My wife suggested that more cops be put into the schools. That’s when I reminded her of some of the cops that were in our school when we were growing up. Cops aren’t the answer. One of the cops that was assigned to our school did everything he could to try to sleep with my wife when she was just a young freshman, and of course she wasn’t the only one. Cops as much as we like to portray them as instruments of fearless justice are just people like any of us. The police academies aren’t putting out great warriors committed to justice at any price filled with valor and a love of goodness—most of the time they are over reactive drama queens looking for attention and love in all the wrong places. If you put more cops in schools where the authority figure of such seasoned adults is mixing with the vulnerability of students taught to be compliant little boot lickers, there will be a lot of abuse of authority and sex going on that nobody wants to see. I’d say that its human nature especially for young females to be easily seduced by the cops in the halls of their schools who have guns and power to meet with them privately for sex. And females in such roles as cops are going to enjoy their ability to seduce the star football players and campus studs over their rivals the other young girls because of her authority. It doesn’t take much when you put males and females together—especially when one is give great power over another to see the blooms of sex occurring creating another kind of abuse beyond the potential violence of gunfire. While it may make everyone feel better to shift the responsibility of action, and valor under fire to some third-party to protect everyone, ultimately it is just a lack of courage that we are dealing with that just exacerbates the situation of protection because such a society only breeds more Nikolas Cruz types.

The cause of school shootings or any situation where an individual desire to lash out at a mass collection of people is a lack of personal valor and responsibility in our society which emerges right out of our public education society. Our schools are such failures that they are at the center of all these problems, including the Las Vegas shooting—the slow reaction to danger, the assumption that authorities have everything under control, the desire to assemble in mass collections of people for safety, entertainment and intellectual stimulation through group appeal. The failures are endless and actually do lead to little bits of insanity. Some of that insanity is like the kid from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who was auditioning to be the next great liberal politicians from South Florida—an irritating young person who clearly used the tragedy to launch more claims of gun control but really found himself seduced by the cameras and desperation of his classmates and adults around him to launch a public campaign that will likely last his entire life. Others are the kids like Cruz who haven’t yet shot up a school, but have been thinking about it. The police who suddenly had something to do and justify their large payrolls, the mothers who suddenly had something tangible to fear crying on television not because they were really sad about the event, but because it gave them a platform to unload all their personal insecurities. There was plenty of fault to go around as to why some loser like the assassin Cruz, the employee at a local Dollar Store, went on a rampage to kill people for all the failures in his own life. Gun control doesn’t begin to solve the problem—it simply makes people who are already desperately screwed up feel good for a short while as they avoid the real failure—our public education system and the type of people it produces into adulthood—messes of existence that are never prepared for action when it’s needed, whether that action is stopping a potential terrorist, or buying milk at the local grocery.

Because of the constant coverage on all the networks of this shooting I turned off the news and played my PlayStation 4 for a while, games like Battlefront, and Doom, and several other games that involve lots of guns shooting bad guys. Before that I was looking at paintball supplies because it is getting warmer and I was thinking of getting some equipment to shoot at other people on the many courses in my area that provide that experience. Before that I stopped by Premier Shooting in West Chester where 96 Rock was hosting a promotional activity at the gun range in the lobby. I was there to pick up some ammunition for my .500 magnum—because I was getting low. As I was playing the shooters on my home video game counsel I was thinking about the millions of kids who were also playing online with me, and wondering what it was about having the ability to shoot at other people in a playful way that was so appealing to so many people. I mean we could all chose to play a number of games, golf, football, bowling, anything. But the most popular games are the shooters—why? That’s because we all have a little warrior left in us from our primal beginnings and the ability to fight is still something we value as a species. Liberals have tried to educate that out of us, but they have failed, and in the cases of Nikolas Cruz they failed spectacularly. We live in a society where Disney sells Star Wars figures at Wal-Mart complete with guns for those figures to play fight with. If the toys didn’t have guns, nobody would buy them. We love guns in our society—the romance of using them to defend goodness from the clutches of villainy is a strong impulse to action. And the solution to our present problem is not to edit guns from our life, but to come to terms with them for the betterment of the human race—so that repressed feelings of lacking control do not cause us to run from one danger to another—such as in the perverted cop, or the over dramatized FBI agent who lets kids like Cruz fall through the cracks because they are too busy with interoffice affairs to do their jobs properly, or the teachers who want to establish a society of weaklings depended on mother government for the rest of their lives—the source of our trouble is our education system and how it aligns with our true desires as people. And until we deal with all that, there isn’t anything we can do legislatively to solve this problem of violence. The only solution is to meet it head on with more powerful guns in the hands of more competent people.

How to Stop Mass School Shootings: More guns not less will help correct the behavioral failure that is increasing in our youth

The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida won’t be the last, and Nikolas Cruz the former student there will have followers to his antics that will lead to more death and destruction. And there isn’t a single law or regulation that can prevent it—the problem is one of ethical behavior, not legal compliance. So long as the human mind desires such things as the destruction of others, violence is always a threat and the only way to be equal in such a world is with a well-armed society. Considering the level of corruption, we have witnessed regarding the FBI over the last couple of years, more cops, more military, and more government will do nothing to stop the desire of kids falling through the cracks from wanting to inflict harm on others through mass violence. As I’ve been saying for a long time now, we are on a social trajectory that will only get worse. Kids these days aren’t going home from school and watching the Andy Griffith Show, as might have happened thirty years ago. The political left has infected our education institutions with their mind tampering utopian ideas that have had the opposite result, and now failure is everywhere. We’ll be cleaning up the mess for at least the next century. That really leaves us with one choice, an expansion of guns personally carried by good, people—teachers, administrators, and parents so that schools are no longer soft target zones ripe for the fulfilment fantasies of our much distraught youth.

It is stunning to hear so many people soaked in the images of these tragic events to demand that something must be done—as if some government agency out there might have an answer. The only two things that can save our society from the brink it is currently resting on is greater intelligence among our people and more personal defense so that when a kid like Nikolas Cruz does snap—which they are prone to do given our depleted moral compass these days, someone can shoot them dead on the spot before they have time to roam the hallways of defenseless public schools essentially shooting fish in a barrel. The death penalty, or more scrutiny of gun legislation will not stop the emergence of people like Nikolas Cruz. I’m sure we’ll learn all the reasons this kid was troubled, and what we will learn is that he turned out not to be a processed piece of meat churned from the local public-school intent to bring about Sir Thomas Moore’s Utopia—he was rejected from that system and he was wrathful about it. That utopia doesn’t exist, and it never will. Schools should never be a gun free zone because we are supposed to be teaching kids to live in the world, and the world can be a violent place. Guns are a part of modern life, millions of adults that these kids are going to deal with are concealed carry holders, so guns are going to be there in American society. The fault of public schools is that they have taken a stance against such American traits, and that has put them at odds with reality when losers like Nikolas Cruz emerge to wreak havoc among the innocent.

Many pondered how a young person like Cruz with their whole life out in front of them could come to a school armed the way he did and consciously set off smoke alarms to create more soft targets created in the panic, or to toss smoke bombs around the halls to help the effect of an apocalypse to satisfy the twisted fantasy that emerges from the mind of the discontent and intellectually limited. But likely they haven’t gotten to know very many 19-year old’s these days—kids coming from broken homes with family chaos derived straight from our soup operas of entertainment. They haven’t payed attention to the music these kids listen to or watched the video games they play. These kids aren’t growing up with even a basic foundation of religion to give them the most fundamental values so what do they have—a sense of self-entitlement and no consequence taught to them in public schools which disconnects behavior from reality. I’ve been saying for a while that we will see more of this behavior, not less. A lot of people think about doing the kinds of things that Nikolas Cruz did. The difference is that most people don’t act on the fantasy. A certain percentage of our population will however, so the problem to deal with is why such a fantasy is in the minds of people to begin with.

We live in the age where at least two generations of youth have been taught that the world should not judge them. What is it they say, “don’t judge.” Well, that runs counter to the very basic instincts that human beings have. Every time a young girl turns down someone a date they are judging the premise of the proposal. Maybe the guy is too ugly, too creepy, or maybe he just smells bad. It used to be if a guy wanted to date a cute girl he might spiffy up his appearance and come back to her again with a second, a third, or a fourth try, and in that manner, society improved because for the young man to have the ability to mate with the girl, she made him do things to improve his social stature. But these days the young girl is not supposed to judge. Heck she is even taught that if she wants to be a boy, she can be—and vice versa. Sex is something that people just do, it’s not something to work for, the value of it has been completely eradicated from our society. Sex is no longer leverage for young females to inspire improvement among the males—these days its “bros before hoes,” and every woman is a potential hoe in hip hop culture. If young people want to do anything and be anything at any give time, they have been taught in public school that they can and that the world won’t judge them. Yet the world does judge, it judges a lot—and that is never going to change. Our mistake as a society is that we let this go on for far too long and it will take at least a century to correct it. In the meantime, we need to carry more guns and to shoot the failures as they trespass upon our freedoms and personal sanctity to satisfy their distorted fantasies provided to them by a portion of our society that has failed their social experiment.

There is a morality in guns that is missing from our present society, a code of conduct that extends beyond the limits of governmental power. American society is not a lover of more institutionalism—so answers along those lines just won’t get the job done. If some kid like Nikolas Cruz starts down some hallway in a gun free zone like a public school and shows intent—meaning he shows an aggressive posture even if the gun he has is just a water pistol, then he should be shot dead on the spot without further inquiry, and the mops should be brought out to clean up the blood, the cops called to file the paperwork, and everyone in the school needs to get back to work. If that is the behavioral characteristic that we adopt as a policy, then we will begin to see an end to these school shootings and the mass acts of terror that we’ve seen in places like Las Vegas. We must empower ourselves to stop this violence and the behavior which causes it, which means we must judge more, we must carry deadlier personal weapons to protect our environment as first responders to aggression, and we must not prosecute people for getting it wrong. If we have a teacher carrying a gun in school and he accidentally shoots someone who is acting like a terrorist using toy guns and masks to hide their features, then we need to give them a warning and put them back to work without further prosecution. Only these types of actions will prevent further deterioration of our social fabric, and believe me, there isn’t much time. Our public schools are putting out a lot of loser kids like Nikolas Cruz. The opportunity for more occurrences is only increasing by the day, literally.

The Ex-Wives of Rob Porter: Nobody, not even the White House, should make employment decisions based on battles between the sexes

Since when does the accusations from ex-wives mandate a national crisis? Why did Rob Porter have to resign again—just because his ex-wives put up some pictures of themselves with black eyes? How do we know those were caused by the former White House aide, Rob Porter? Women, especially if they feel a man they were involved with sometimes can be very vengeful if he’s moved on to someone else. They will do some pretty crazy things to get attention—so how do we know that’s not the case here? Has this #metoo movement drove everyone into insanity? And now we’re saying that the White House Chief of Staff should be fired just because of the comments of some women? We are living in a crazy period where it is assumed that anything a woman says is true and cannot be even contemplated in a court of law, and that is just insane. Nobody in their right mind would allow for such a thing because regardless of what is being proposed in the #metoo movement, women can be just as devious and manipulative as men, so everything has to be taken within reason—especially in the White House.

Domestic violence is one of the most dangerous elements of any of our lives. As I’m writing this on Valentines Day of 2018 the sweet parts of courting a potential mate is the fun part—what we all celebrate as part of the relationship experience. But reality dictates that most of the time a relationship between and man and a woman is difficult, because the two versions of human being have much of the time completely opposite biological impulses and matching those up is hard for even the most seasoned communicator. Dealing with the depressing fact that a relationship of more than five years with another person beyond the realm of friendship is often disappointing, affairs often become part of the equation which then brings more complications to an already difficult one and emotions can become very erratic. A perfectly calm person can turn into a monster when all their hopes and dreams are leveraged against them by a vengeful spouse and domestic violence may appear to be the only way out.

Men are not the only villains in domestic abuse. Where men tend to hit or punch their way out of trouble when they feel the walls closing in on all sides of them, women tend to be more cerebral in their cruelty, using sex, family, or even collective assets as forms of slow, sustained mental torture against someone in their life whom they are trying to dominate into their way of thinking. Just because physical violence may not be part of that reality doesn’t mean the abuse isn’t going on. That doesn’t mean a man can just haul of and slug a woman who is mentally abusing them, but just like a child that cries when they don’t have the communication range to articulate a challenge to their intellects, grown men will often lash out with violence when they feel pressed to the point of having no other option. Just because a man hits a woman in a domestic fight it doesn’t mean that the woman was free of guilt. It just means that the man lost the fight because he surrendered thought and used his usually greater strength to shut down the conflict through the only means he felt he could dominate. The woman certainly plays her part in propelling the anger usually.

How people manage their domestic affairs is largely a personal problem, it’s not one for the greater society. Look at what happened with the tragic situation of Quentin Smith who was fighting with his wife when she had called 911 and officers Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering showed up to save the day. Smith had a long history of criminal conduct and it is a bewildering case of masochism that the abused wife was even conducting a relationship the Smith, which from an outsider’s perspective she shouldn’t have been engaged in. The result of the confrontation was that tempers where hot and Smith shot and killed the two officers—and he’s going back to jail, where he had spent time previously. The woman in this case had a relationship with a known loser, and usually in such cases kids are involved and so is money needed to raise the needs of a family—so there’s always pressure in how to allocate resources. The police did what they had to do, they were called into a family’s home to resolve a fight that the couple couldn’t take care of themselves and they ended up losing their life in the process—because the couple couldn’t manage on their own. Likely, Quentin Smith isn’t the sharpest tack in the box so when pressed he gets angry and tries to use violence to get leverage over the people he deals with. In the case of a physically weaker woman, that was his default mode and the wife understood that about him, and probably at some level liked that threat of violence. Some people like to walk on the danger zone, especially masochists. There is a very fine line between couples who experiment with versions of sadomasochism and physical abuse. Sex between such couples who are already riding that fine line can be rough and dangerous. Things can become deadly when the context of that rough sex translates into the anger of real life events where barriers get blurred under emotional distress.

Not much has been said about Rob Porter’s ex-wives. But speaking from experience, they both likely enjoyed that Porter was a man who could access power, otherwise he wouldn’t be working in the White House in the first place. Sex with such a man likely made them feel safe and secure even if it was a little rough. They probably liked it. That is, until they couldn’t move him where they wanted emotionally and the relationship crumbled, and they became ex-wives instead of just wives. That’s when the daggers come out. Perfectly nice people can become extreme villains from the perspective of the other spouse under such conditions and that little harmless guy who just wants to mow his grass on a Saturday and hide in the garage to avoid the wrath of his crazy wife suddenly becomes the equivalent of a mass murderer when the antics of the husband are talked about insistently by the wife looking for a divorce, but not wanting to be the bad one to ask for it. Emotions can get pretty out of control. An ex-wife can really get vengeful if her old husband is doing well, hanging out with the president of the United States and is starting to bang a much more attractive woman—or a younger woman at that. Women in such a position may do some pretty crazy things, like hit their face against a wall and blame the ex-husband when there are bruises. Or even perhaps the woman had a rape fantasy that occurred within the context of their former marriage and there were pictures taken for the fun of it, but those pictures were resurrected to gain leverage during divorce proceedings. What is promised in pillow talk often disintegrates in a courtroom because judges almost always listen to the woman’s side of the story right or not. What happens in sexual relationships can get pretty strange and are fine until the relationship ends and there is evidence to condemn the man.

So what was the White House supposed to do with Porter? What the guy does in his private life is his business, and especially what he does with women. If he’s doing a good job at work, the employer really doesn’t have the right to go any further into personal affairs. Any employer has that restriction, we can’t go around firing people just because ex-wives are engaged in legal battles with their former lovers. We don’t hire and fire based on acquisitions and we don’t get into other people’s personal business. The courts can do what the couples desire through divorce proceedings and custody battles. But Trump and his administration were smart to take the high road. There is no scandal in the White House involving the employment of Rob Porter. Women can say a lot of things for a lot of different reasons, and so can men. How people conduct their personal relationships shouldn’t be a deciding factor on how people perform at their jobs. If we do add such a thing to the mix, we would likely find that most human beings aren’t qualified for employment. And we really don’t want to open up that can of worms, because nothing good will come of it. The #metoo movement isn’t about saving women from abusive husbands. It’s just a power move by a political class of women looking for their own advantages in the battle of the sexes. And in that battle, they are hardly innocent.

The Modern Criminal Case of Jason Lehman: Passing judgment and saving lives in the face of changing social conditions

Recently I wrote an article about Jason Lehman who attacked a day care facility in West Chester, Ohio for no apparent reason, and I suggested that in the future that we shoot people like this on site to alleviate the risks to others of such irrational behavior. That isn’t the typical mode of approaching such a problem, but I suggested that due to the immoralities of our age that we should alter our approach to a more aggressive one to counter the decline of our social fabric which confronts us currently. Obviously, I thought it might inspire thoughts of concern and one person who did not agree with me wrote what I thought was a nice comment laying open the critical elements of the entire argument. Read the original article here. Now let’s examine what she said:

I often read things and mull over them. Keeping my thoughts to myself. This time I feel the need to share my thoughts and feelings with you. I know Jason Lehman and I have for many years. While I do not understand why he did what he did, nor do I condone this behavior in any way shape or form. I whole heartedly disagree with your opinions 100%. 1. His tattoos do not define him. period. – His behavior does, judge him on that. 2. Shoot him dead?!? This is someone’s child. Obviously, he needs help, not a death sentence. 3. You obviously have zero compassion. you do not know him. You are not required to care about this tattooed freak, as you see him. Again, he has family and friends who may not agree with his actions, but also do NOT like to see, hear or read that others think he is a waste of space who should be dead. I am upset with his behavior, I would like answers, but I would also like whatever caused him to behave like that addressed.

At this point, I do not know what caused him to behave like that, but calling for death? Let’s not be so cruel, as you never know, someone you may know and care about may just act like an asshole and make bad choices, upsetting others and I’m sure you would not like to see/hear the exact things that have come out of your mouth said about them

This freaks only father that he has ever known has died while he sits in jail because of his dumbass behavior ( see, we all agree on that).

Think before you speak (write). Words hurt and no I’m not a snowflake. Just a compassionate person who happens to have been rubbed the wrong way and hoping that you’ll take a few moments to see things from another perspective.

Obviously, this person is functioning from an emotional position of having some personal knowledge about the criminal, Jason Lehman. And in spite of the temperament of our times, where women can do no wrong and must be listened to without any critical analysis, she is obviously suffering from “mom” syndrome, which is a paralysis of thought inspired by the immense self-sacrifice that women pour into their babies and is a rather specific emotion attached to the females of our species. I withheld the name of this person out of respect for them, but can say that she is a woman. For a woman who can relate to the process of giving birth it is understandably undesirable that anybody might erase away all their hard work with a simple gun shot, so this is typically why women are sympathetic to more firearms restrictions in our society—which is logical from a personal psychosis standpoint. To her, Jason Lehman has value just because he’s somebody’s little boy at some point in his life.

But then we get to the real issue of this criminal coming from a broken home, a person who didn’t know much about his biological father and had a step father of some kind who served as a mentor—if not a limited one– likely contributed to the conditions in the life of the criminal that inspired such violence to begin with. And it is here why I suggested more violence to deal with these types of people than less, which might have been appropriate in the past. We live in a time when more people than not do not have biological fathers in their life and if they have fathers at all, society has washed out the image of the all-knowing father away and left society with these husks of worthless human flesh that belch, fart and complain like a bunch of sissy’s. That has had a major impact on the condition of our youth—especially our young males. It certainly isn’t the fault of the fatherless kids who grew up without that advantage of a real father. Jason Lehman certainly didn’t have a choice in the matter—yet the parts of him that were underdeveloped due to a bad home life are now the problem of society at large. Lehman’s inability to grapple with the complexities of living life become all of our problem when he attacked a day care center in the middle of the day with a rage that nobody could explain.

I think we are dealing with a world that has a lot of Jason Lehmans in it. They may be pretty cool guys sitting around a sports bar watching an NFL game, or talking about how to change the tire on a Ford Mustang or a Chevy Camaro and how the jack stands in the trunk are better than the other design. But when they lay their heads down on their pillows at night and the demons come into their minds, demons created from the fears and anxieties given to them from not having fathers in their lives to control those beasts of terror, then they are prone to become the next great menace to civilization. It is one thing to have compassion for such people and to live and let live. It is quite another to let them ruin the world for the rest of us.

Pushing fathers out of the home and seducing moms into the arms of government was a progressive failure by the political class of liberals who tried and failed to change the very nature of the human species. It was their tampering with that basic biological need that has presented us with all these modern problems of young men suffering from so much anxiety. Where older mentors of men might tell a male of youth to shut up, sit down and do your work without crying about it, now we have everyone telling those young males to cry about everything and when the crying doesn’t provide the results they desire, to throw a fit. It’s one thing when a little kid throws a fit, nobody much worries. But when a scary looking tattooed freak of a man throws a fit, he may have guns, knives, or just a menacing 270-pound body to wreak destruction on the innocent, and we just can’t have that—can we? Again, the fault can be placed on a lot of places. It’s not the fault of these people who grew up in broken families or pasts mired in tragedy where nobody in their lives provided a stable base they could rely on. But we can’t just throw our arms up and allow ourselves to be victims to their wrath either.

My suggestion is that we just shoot them dead when they act up. I think it’s the most compassionate thing we can do. I’m a guy who will fish an insect out of a summer pool to save it from death. I’m also a guy who hasn’t hit an animal with a car in my entire life, in over 30 years of driving. I swerve way out of my way to save animals and preserve life when they run out in front of my speeding car. I love life and want to see people live the best lives possible wherever they can, whether it be an insect or a human being—I feel for all life. But it is also out of that same compassion that I say when we see someone who is beyond hope of redemption acting up, that we should just put them out of their misery—so that they can’t ruin the lives of other people. It seems like the most humanitarian thing to do. It may go against the laws of our current legal system, but maybe with the dangerous condition of so many males disparaged in their lives without stability running around these days, maybe we should change it before a lot more innocent people get hurt.

Why Members of the FBI Must Go To Jail: The legal system depends on it

From my perspective there is no choice, members of the FBI, the CIA, the former Obama White House and even the NSA are going to have to go to jail for the crimes they committed against the incoming President Trump administration. If they don’t then don’t expect me to ever respect anything they do going forward, I do not give them the right to barge into my home, or to confiscate my property without retaliation, because a nation without laws, isn’t a nation at all. If they aren’t restricted to the same laws that the rest of us undergo, then none of us are. In the scheme of things, the FBI works for all of us, we pay their bills and look to them to be the blind eye of justice to keep the wheels on our republic. But a failure to do such things essentially wipes out everything we stand for, so those who have abused their power must go to jail at a minimum. There isn’t any choice in the matter. If Martha Stewart had to go to jail for laying to the FBI, then so must the FBI when they lie to us.

I’ve said it many times in the past, but I’ll say it again for context, I’ve been to court more times than any collection of adults together would entertain even under the worst of circumstances. I’ve hired lawyers, I’ve fired lawyers and just done the work myself, I’ve even represented myself under personal lawsuits and come out favorable, so I know a thing or two about how the potatoes are turned into French fries when it comes to the legal system. I know more about the game of law than a lot of people who work in the business as a matter of fact. So with that qualification I can say that going forward, knowing what we do, the FBI must act correcting its behavior before they can initiate any further prosecutions in any court of law any time in the future. Because its only a matter of time before these actions are brought up in a court of law and the cases presented get thrown out based on the reputation of the FBI. Any smart lawyer is going to look to these events to defend their clients which is the greatest danger to our republic that we have witnessed in our modern age.

The FBI knows it too, they understand the ramifications that just the text messages uncovered by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are enough to destroy the credibility of the FBI all by itself. But of course there is much more to the story that has to be dealt with. But as things stand now, if the FBI were to break down my door under some suspicion, why would I treat them under any condition but by that of a common law-breaker, because they have shown themselves all too willing to break the law and destroy evidence? If I’m looking for justice why would I trust that I could get it with the FBI, or by my own actions in defense of my personal sovereignty? I can say that without a lawyer to represent my case that I could defend actions against the FBI in a court of law and win because of the dirty nature of the organization itself. I would also say that any good lawyer could do the same, because the merits of the institutional foundation of the FBI itself is now under scrutiny and cannot hold up to the case-law that is being established currently.

So to those who say that none of these people are going to go to jail, or that the Obama people will skate—I have to tell you, that they really can’t. If our legal system is going to survive this uncovered crises—which I hope they do honestly–many people will have to go to jail otherwise our process of justice has lost its teeth unleashing upon our nation anarchy. Speaking from experience it isn’t difficult to make a case for reasonable doubt especially if you have a good reputation and the accusers do not. After all, most cases come down to that simple fact. A person’s reputation means everything which is why it’s important to always maintain a good one in the face of any fire, or circumstance that you might find yourself in. If you are a good person 24 hours a day, 7 days a week even in the confines of your home when you think nobody is looking, then you can stand against a villain with a bad reputation even if they have much more political and financial power than you do and destroy them in court. All the money in the world can’t buy goodness. Goodness on its own has a capital that has more value than money. A six-figure defense by a lawyer in court can’t beat a good reputation that is beyond dispute. A good reputation is worth millions if you have it, and will serve justice better under any circumstance.

Knowing that there are field agents like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page out there having affairs, breaking FBI protocol by sending text messages to each other that create paper trails of evidence very recklessly, because they felt they were above the law, destroys the credibility of every agent in the field. If the FBI fails to discipline obvious breaches in their basic ethics how can they send a field agent to kick down the door of some terrorist suspect, or some witness holding needed testimony and not expect to be retaliated against as a domestic threat? They can’t. Then if you compound that with the actions of James Comey, who lied obviously to Congress, leaked government documents to outside sources—and who know who else, then we have a seriously systemic problem legally. If the guy running the show is a character willing to show such disregard for the law then how can that person ever expect to have credibility in bringing forth any prosecution? Comey’s actions actually create doubt about any case he oversaw during his time as director of the FBI. Everything he did as the top law enforcement officer in the land now comes into scrutiny giving lawyers for clients found guilty an easy case to resurrect for their convicted clients. Then consider that James Clapper—the former Director of National Intelligence—also lied to Congress when he stated he didn’t know anything about a FISA warrant illegally obtained to spy on the incoming Trump administration. How can anything he did during his tenure as an intelligence director be trusted? You see dear reader, this is a real legal problem that most of the insiders in the legal world are afraid of the general public learning about.

I had a meeting with some very smart national and international lawyers just last week, it was a meeting over patent law and one of the people in the meeting was a career government type who works within the system that has bosses like these idiots James Comey, James Clapper, and even Bob Mueller. Where most people who don’t deal with such people very often might assume that these types of people are “super smart” and have something the rest of us don’t in regard to knowledge, guess again. While many of them are good people and are good at their specific career choices, they are just people. And the “just people” parts of them are very worried that the general public will start demanding justice because of what we have all learned about the terrible behavior of our intelligence agencies paid for with tax payer resources after we had a free election. Seeking, plotting, or otherwise tampering with that election is a serious offense, but to make matters worse, they sought to create a false case of Russian involvement creating possible international tensions when it was they who colluded with a political party to change the results of an election. That is very serious stuff and until they resolve that issue, they better not come to my house looking to violate any of my Constitutional rights. If my door gets burst open like Paul Manafort’s did in the small hours of the morning, a lot of those people won’t be going home to eat dinner that night—let me just say that. Before all this happened, I would obviously assess the situation and cooperate assuming they had bad information and that mistakes were made. But the FBI and law enforcement in general has lost that benefit of doubt and until they correct that situation with a purge of their corrupted officers and we see the villains going to jail, I have to assume that they are up to no good and are inflicting justice based on political affiliations. And that just isn’t permissible.

The Power of God is Behind President Trump: How a second storm is saving Washington D.C.

It was August 24th 1814 when a tornado touched down in the middle of Constitution Avenue and picked up two English canons and hurled them at friend and foe alike. The English were attacking Washington D.C. and had been burning it to the ground virtually unopposed setting every building ablaze except for the Patent office when what appears to be a hurricane appeared and literally washed away the British forces. The White House and other government buildings were completely destroyed, but there had been nothing to remove the foreign invaders from the early city of American independence until the storm came and drove the troops back to their ships which were also badly damaged. There have been storms up to then and of course since, but the odds of a storm of that magnitude coming at just that moment are pretty incalculable in the randomness of chance leaving many to believe that it was the power of God himself who blew grace upon the streets of the fledgling little city in America to save it from the misdeeds of global institutionalism.

That same smug institutionalism had returned to Washington D.C. two centuries later, this time instead of coming as a Red Coat army it appeared as lawyers, lobbyists, and politicians taught by the descendents of those same English dissidents jealous of American independence to destroy through bureaucracy what the fires and cannons of 1814 couldn’t. And again, like the storm of 1814 which came from nowhere to send British troops fleeing the battlefield to save themselves a new storm came ideologically this time to save America’s capital from the enemies that wished to destroy it. However, instead of a literal storm this time, it was a metaphorical one, because that is where the threats were most hostile, in the ideology and legislation of the country itself, not the aggressive antics of a literal army. Due to the nature of the human race by the year 2018 military action was no longer endorsed by the rituals of valor leaving villains to rewrite history through red tape, apathy, and lawyerly destruction through law suits. Regardless of the form of villainy the next storm that came to save Washington D.C. was an election which put Donald J. Trump in the White House by the grace of universal law intent to preserve American resolve across the face of the earth for the furtherance of the ideas which necessitate human expansion into the unknown future.

Of course when the British attacked in 1814 they sat down at the White House dinner table that still had the food of a feast ready to feed the Madisons that evening. Dolly had been forced to flee moments before the English arrived with the original portrait of George Washington fresh under her arm for safe keeping knowing that everything else would be destroyed. She met her husband later on the road at a tavern where the president collected his thoughts on the lofty matter of resurrecting the ambitions of the young country. The British forces mocked James Madison within the captured White House and elsewhere around the city as they destroyed everything bit by bit. To the English the American experiment was a foolish enterprise against the institutionalism of Europe and they took offense which fueled their raid. Once captured they couldn’t help themselves in glorifying their obvious superiority over the Americans who had fled the battlefield leaving their capital open to the invading troops in the first place. That is, until the storm washed them away returning the city to its original occupants.

That same smugness was on excessive display in the Michael Wolff book Fire and Fury which was a left of center—even right of center response to the election of Donald Trump. The purpose of the entire book was to highlight the might of institutionalism against an American president molded in the typical way that most true Americans are built, not from collective group think, but from inner resolve driven by a fortitude forged by free souls. The same resolve that sent the small statured James Madison on horseback back into the city after the storm had done its work to rally people to reconstruction and to eventually defeat the English with an American steadfastness the world had never witnessed before. This would climax at the Battle of New Orleans where the greatest army of the world was soundly defeated by a far superior battlefield commander in Andrew Jackson.

Like most books, Fire and Fury did manage to capture some truth from the perspective of the enemy just as the English mocked American parliament as they attacked. Much of the book was written from the perspective of Steve Bannon whom Wolff had obviously hooked onto for the contents of his book, and Bannon had correctly identified the fuel of the Trump presidency. It was Trump against the institutions, a wild card of a man who couldn’t be controlled in any way by the usual practices. Of course to Wolff who represented the very terror of the institutionalists who had been destroying Washington D.C. procedurally for many years, the Trump presidency was something to be mocked and ridiculed. For the destroyers of Washington D.C. Trump was a nightmare, but to the rest of us who elected him, he was a savior who was set to wash away the sins which had been corrupting it. To many Trump was sent to Washington D.C. like that storm so many years before to clean up the streets and give the city back to the people who it was supposed to represent. The buildings could be rebuilt, but the rest had to go. Trump was the very power of God sent to retake the city for the benefit of mankind.

The last great hope that the villains of the Beltway had to defend themselves from the Trump presidency was that the FBI which had fallen under control of the scoundrels controlling the city would stop the president from achieving his victory. The Wolff book chronicles that hope through the first eight months of the first year Trump was in the White House, from the perspective of the villains, their hopes and dreams to remain occupants of the Washington D.C. culture. Their hope just as the English invaders before them had been that the institutions of human invention would triumph ultimately over the individual ambitions of a free people. In the case of Trump, their hope was that true or not, the Russian investigation would destroy the presidency by keeping occupants of the White House so mired in scandal and concern that they would be always on their heels mired into inaction. And that through that inaction, Trump would be forced to show nothing after four years in office and would be removed either by the next election, or impeachment in case the pressure from the special investigation could turn up something to justify such action.

But the miscalculation that was made was that the nature of Trump was not a normal one—like the storm of 1814 Trump was a force of nature that defied controls and was free of the types of fear that mire most people into inaction, and that is what is destroying the villains in Washington D.C. presently. Because of what the FBI had done to set up a case against Trump, they have set an impossible standard against themselves which is now crushing them with a scrutiny for which they will never escape. The Democrats in their alliance with the FBI, CIA and the NSA have left themselves vulnerable to the storm that is Donald J. Trump and they will not survive. It’s only been a year of the Trump presidency and already it is obvious what is happening. Only this time there are no ships to retreat too, there is no country to flee too, there is no surrender under a white flag of truce. The institutionalists have gone too far and destroyed their own links into the old world, and destruction is the only fate available to them. This leaves us all to ponder the nature of American protection, is it truly the hand of God that is moving these events into furtherance, or something else? Regardless of the answer to that question, it is clear that preservation is always on the horizon for any American motive and that is a lesson that all villains should take heed. No matter how much they scheme, no matter what their plots indicate, whatever is needed to foil their plans will come to pass if threats become more than the minds of normal man can undertake. President Trump is just the latest storm to clean Washington of its villains, and in the aftermath, we will find a city that needs us to carry it forward once again marching as soldiers of Christianity toward a battlefield constructed by the forces of evil determined to forever chain us to the limits of institutionalism and chaos created by villainy.

We Need More Republicans to Control the Budget: Jim Renacci for Senate is part of a Trump solution

I am happy that Republicans took care of business and worked the best they could with congress to get a budget deal passed, but I am very disappointed that another trillion dollars was added to the debt. I expect under the Trump administration to see that debt clock running backwards down to zero, not to continue piling on more spending until there simply isn’t anything left. I was encouraged by the comments of Rand Paul and my local congressman Warren Davidson to see that they were willing to speak against spending more money, but ultimately Trump said it best when he stated that Republicans simply need more Republicans to have sustainable majorities coming out of the upcoming midterms. For Republicans to have a real majority there needs to be at least a 60-vote surplus in the Senate, preferably more, and the House needs to expand, not just hold its ground. And to that effect I am very happy to see Trump so far out planting the seeds to make that happen.

I am supporting Jim Renacci for his senate run against Sharrod Brown in Ohio. Another great thing that came out of this past week was that while President Trump came to Ohio to speak about tax cuts, Jim Renacci was with him on Air Force One so a large crowd of Renacci supporters was in attendance and while we waited I had a chance to talk to them about the very dynamic senatorial candidate and current congressman. I was of course already planning to support him but I was impressed that President Trump had already singled out Renacci for a targeted Senate seat held by one of the biggest liberals in Washington D.C. I had the opportunity to see how the machine was working and I liked it, these were competent people who had a plan that I could get behind and it was exciting to see. I had no doubt that with people like Jim Renacci in the Senate that the debt clock issue could be attacked, and the other things on the Trump agenda could get done. There is no reason we can’t do all the things we need to do, take care of the military, improve our infrastructure and pay down our debt to zero with the growth of the Trump economy, but it takes the right kind of leadership to make it happen, not the kind of garbage that we have seen coming from the Beltway for the last century.

Jim’s pilot was next to me in the greeting line and I had the opportunity to get to know Jim Renacci better through that very good guy. He was the guy in my video who asked the president for a fist bump and got one, and also stated that he had been to 20 rallies for Trump during the election which received an acknowledgment from the President confirming as much. As Jim came up to where we were standing the pilot stated, “guys, this is Jim.” I was impressed that there was a very good Renacci, Trump connection this early in 2018 and Rob Portman was there as the second senator of Ohio providing the glue to hold everything together. It was an impressive display by the Ohio GOP to build this early show of teamwork that excited me, because it showed a path forward where a productive Senate could work with the President to get a lot of good things done over the next seven years if given the opportunity, and at the core of that thought was Jim Renacci.

The media was literally five feet from my position and they told a completely different story of the event than I did. To them the crowd that was gathered at Lunken airport to greet Jim Renacci and President Trump was a small, but friendly one. They neglected to report that the greeting pen was filled with 200 carefully vetted, enthusiastic supporters who were willing to stand in 25-degree weather to meet these guys, and had to go through very tight security to even get the chance. From my perspective Trump has been a master strategist from the very beginning—he has shown a real ability to pick people from the crowd and to polish them into greatness. He built a top-rated television show off just that specific talent, and here he was doing the same thing in government, finding people like Jim Renacci to put in the right place to do the most good. I see what Trump does clearly because I have the same benefit to a large extent so it’s easy for me to see it in other people—I hire a lot of people each year, and I’m good at it–at finding the right people for the right positions. It’s a complicated thing to develop because you have to read people’s body language, the way they look at you, hold their shoulders, the way they speak, to really get a feel for who they could be if they were in a particular position of employment. As a twenty-five-year-old I worked on the Rob Portman campaign when he was just a few years older than me trying to win a special election, and here he was at the center of a major political emergence. And when I finally had a chance to see Jim Renacci up close with President Trump it was obvious that this was the right guy for the upcoming Senate seat. There was no question in my mind.

As Jim, President Trump and Melania walked by me down the line I was thinking of a particular quote from the hit piece book by Michael Wolff called Fire and Fury. The prosecutor of Butler County, Mike Gmoser and I had been talking about that book as we both went through security together. He told me in a very straightforward fashion that he didn’t have time for that garbage, and wasn’t happy with the reputation of the book. But I had read it a few times which was the root of our discussion and one quote jumped out at me which I think sums up the way that progressives like Sharrod Brown see the world in such a negative way, and what the rest of us are fighting. It goes as follows:

“For Trump, as for many showmen or press release entrepreneurs, the enemy of everything is complexity and red tape, and the solution for everything is cutting corners. Bypass or ignore the difficulties; just move in a straight line to the vision, which, if its bold enough, or grandiose enough, will sell itself. In this formula, there is always a series of middlemen who will promise to help you cut the corners, as well as partners who will be happy to piggyback on your grandiosity.” Page 224, Fire and Fury.

Basically, this was the essence of Wolff’s observations and writing in the book that the political left felt represents the Trump administration, that everything is about plowing through red tape that liberals have created to achieve showy results for the sake of self-aggrandizement. The reason we have such debt, and a crumbling infrastructure as well as a depleted military is that liberals built a government over many years that used red tape to hide their inefficient “small” thinking that has created our present tragedy of monumental debt leaving it to Republicans to fix in the short run. The Republicans are tasked with solving the problem and it will take lots of good people like Jim Renacci to fix it with House and Senate majorities in 2018.

The debt crises of our present age was created by liberal-minded people who think like Michael Wolff, people who don’t really understand how money and business works and why tax cuts lead to prosperity and economic growth as opposed to confiscating the wealth of people to give out to their political base so they can get votes to stay in power. Most of our twenty trillion dollars in debt is due all that red tape that liberals have created and their formation of corners that need to be cut in order to do anything productive in life. I didn’t just read Fire and Fury once, but several times—and its horribly written, a real chore because its sloppy and filled with so much hate for Trump, but it does capture in a bottle how liberals think, and really puts on display the rational that has created so much debt to deal with in the first place. Republicans had no choice but to come up with some budget deal and I’m not happy about it. But the real solution is to expand Republican influence in 2018, not to let it shrink. Good people like Jim Renacci are part of that solution, and its great to see that President Trump has a plan. It’s also good to see that Jim Renacci is part of that plan.
