The Bounty Hunter Frank the Duntz Luntz: How consultants really run our government

Who Really Runs Our Government?

Well, I didn’t know it until the story broke that Kevin McCarthy was sharing an apartment with Frank Luntz, the pollster and what I call in my upcoming book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, a “bounty hunter.” Frank Luntz in the Washington D.C. beltway swamp is undoubtedly one of those.  The rest of the world has known him as a consultant, which I think is a weak word for what he does.  Consultants in business and politics are there to mitigate risk from the real stakeholders of an enterprise, whether it’s a CEO of a large company or the House Leader for the Republicans in congress.  Those with the most risk to shoulder are often hiring bounty hunters to do their dirty work for them. It’s a common practice and is really at the heart of much of what is wrong in the world of commerce, which is why I have a special designation for those types of people.  I dedicate a whole chapter to this enterprise, and when people want to know why our government is so swampy, it’s because of people like Frank Luntz.  And when we look specifically at our current situation, such as the consensus-building against election fraud in the 2020 election, which allowed our tax payer funded intelligence agencies to conduct a coup against a sitting president who was massively re-elected.  (For proof the results in the Arizona audit are headed in that direction) That’s terrible news for bounty hunters like Frank Luntz, so there is a lot of doubling down that is going on because the villains are exposed, and they don’t want to be.

I never cared much for Frank Luntz.  He gathers information and uses it to shape strategy and opinions on politicians and the media’s topics.  He doesn’t just work as a bounty hunter for political characters but corporations as well.  So when it is wondered how policy gets shaped that often looks completely un-American, it is because of bounty hunters like Frank Luntz.  When we put people like Kevin McCarthy into power as voters to run the Republican Party in Congress, we expect to get him as our representative.  Not Frank Luntz.  But as Frank often does as a bounty hunter is sample opinions of some losers here and there then give the sum result to people like McCarthy, who ends up listening to them more than voters.  And that’s how a few bounty hunters end up running the entire town and is precisely why the Swamp, as we call it, has ended up being so corrupt.  Trump was so effective because he didn’t use consultants, had an excellent instinct for getting to the right decisions with his methods and didn’t hire it out or solicit it. During his administration, the bounty hunter types were far less valuable.  And they didn’t like that. 

Bounty hunters make their money by shouldering risk away from those with a lot to lose.  I have often said the primary effect of the modern CEO is not to have opinions and stand for anything at all as the head of a company.  The marketing people take care of the branding. Usually, a tradition for a big company has already established market reliability.  What the CEO does is keep risk from destroying what was built in the company. That’s why they hire bounty hunters to do their dirty work of opinion-shaping for them.  And that’s how Frank Luntz has gained a lot of power even though technically he’s pretty much a Duntz; he’s not very wise about things.  Bounty hunters like Frank Luntz only do one thing: to create advice that keeps their clients away from risk that might harm them politically or economically.  Yet here’s the catch, Frank Luntz is a Democrat, or he thinks like one.  So as a bounty hunter to the rich and powerful, he can then shape their actions to politics that he supports, which means that he controls our government.  Our votes are not. 

I have despised Frank Luntz for two occasions, first the way he set up Trump in 2015 toward the presidential election over John McCain.  It helped Trump more than hurt him when Luntz asked him if John McCain was a war hero.  Trump said his famous “I like people who don’t get caught.” Luntz, the bounty hunter, thought he had a way to knock off Trump at that moment, so he made a big deal about it.  But what do you know, Trump thrived off the negative coverage because voters enjoyed that the then presidential hopeful wasn’t just another phony hiring people like Frank Luntz to advise him on public policy, as so many Republicans had at that time.  The other time I wouldn’t say I liked Frank Luntz was on the night of the 2016 election, where the bounty hunter was very arrogant about what little chance Trump had about winning.  But guess what, Trump won easily, leaving egg on the face of Frank Luntz in a big way.  Yet like a bunch of idiots, the politicians kept hiring bounty hunters like Luntz, and the Swamp itself buckled down to establish a coup against our pick for president.  By the time we got to 2020, Luntz and many like him who make vast amounts of money steering our elected representatives toward leftist cultures and positions beneficial to them worked hard to talk about polls favoring gun control among the American people. He also spoke about polls saying people want to move on from accusations of election fraud, when in fact, the true polls Frank is talking about are him talking to two bald men and a goldfish to get the “feel” of the American public. 

McCarthy doesn’t know any better; he’s sharing a toothbrush with Luntz, so he has trust in Luntz, not so much in what the voters are thinking. That’s the bounty hunter game, to do what they were hired to do, let the chaos of the aftermath drive the sheriffs to fund another posse for the next villains.  Yet as bounty hunters have always done, whether in the Old West or the modern-day Beltway culture, they make friends with the bandits to encourage them into trouble so that the politicians will hire them again.  The bounty hunters never seek to solve the problem. Otherwise, they’d be unemployed.  They only want to take the risk away from someone like Kevin McCarthy when questioned about the GOP position on voter fraud or guns. Or even illegal immigration.  Frank will give advice that takes away the risk while steering Kevin in a liberal direction for the actual future strategy.  The bounty hunters need villains to make money, so they always nurture them along behind the scenes.  They don’t want to solve the problem. That’s why they all hated Trump because he wanted to solve the issues, and that meant he wasn’t calling bounty hunters to do the dirty work for him, which is where the real fix is in all politics. 

It’s just as big of a problem in companies as it is in politics, bounty hunters are everywhere, and they charge a lot of money to take the risk away from those most burdened by it.  But when you are a brash, battle-hardened CEO who didn’t pawn off the responsibility of risk to a bounty hunter, well, then things can get done, which is why Trump was so successful.  It’s also why Frank Luntz hated Trump so intensely and is working every day to restore his grip on politics in Washington and within the media. But people are getting wise to it, and that’s why I dedicated a whole chapter in my book to the matter.  It’s one of the most corrosive things in a mass communication culture, where bounty hunters are running things because everyone who should be in charge is too frightened by risk to do the job themselves.  If we want to fix our politics, we will have to get rid of the bounty hunters that are in it.  Then and only then can we expect things to improve.

The Economic Stupidity of Biden and Democrats: A fourth stimulus check?

Joe Biden and Democrats are Economically Stupid

Without dipping into the waters of conspiracy, I have listened carefully to the liberals connected to Joe Biden after his speech to the two houses of congress and understand why Democrats have no idea how economics works.  Joe Biden was asked that very question during an interview: he thought it was a good time to do all these taxable progressive items when it might harm the economy or something to that effect.  His answer was, “why do you think the economy is coming back? Because we are investing.” I think when he said that, he believed it.  He and other Democrats believe that “taxes” are the same things as “investing.” Therefore, taxes are investments in our children, infrastructure, job creation, and the only way to prosper.  In another interview, Biden stated that only government could invest in highway building, railroads, and airports.  He disputed the premise that private industry would be able to do those things, so in that way, he justified the role government played in building the nation. 

As I said in the video above, all these ideas on economic theory came from the school of Karl Marx.  And Marx died dirt poor and broke in London where his family suffered a great deal while he hid in the British Museum studying past economy theory to derive what he and his buddy Engles came to invent in Marxism.  Liberals like Biden have been in government their entire lives and have never earned money they received but were just given it, spending their whole lives not learning the basic economic facts of reality.  Joe Biden has been given money by the government his entire adult life.  He has also been given many millions of dollars by foreign investment to conduct influence peddling, and like most Marxists, they think that is part of a healthy, manipulative government.  The more influence you can peddle, the more money that people give you.  So if you control the levers of power, you can get cash for your influence to peddle.  That is how it is in all communist and socialist countries and why Democrats will do anything to gain more government power.  They have come to understand the economic value through the power that can be peddled. But since they aren’t very smart about what creates money, they incorrectly associate its creation of value through government, not the effort of work and labor that comes from an idea generated by freedom.

Liberals are and will always be chained to Plato’s cave theory.  Democrats only see the shadows on the cave wall to refer to the famous metaphor.  They are broken in their first assumptions about how economies work, and they can lie to you with a straight face because they know of nothing else.  This is yet another reason why they must cheat in elections because they aren’t just trying to gain more power to peddle in influence trading. Still, they are hiding from themselves these fundamental facts of economic thought.  Joe Biden is working towards a universal wage given by the government to the people under it for their sustenance.  Work and effort are entirely foreign ideas to Democrats.  They think that all they must do to maintain an economy is to print more money, and like magic, the value will hold, which of course to any sane mind is preposterous.  Yet that is what Democrats like Joe Biden honestly believe, chased down with a swag of insanity.    

When you hear some of the costly proposals that the Biden administration has put forth, the billions here, the billions there, the billions everywhere that soon add up to trillions in additional debt, why don’t we forget about these measly $1400 checks?  Why not make them a billion for each man, woman, and child in America.  When governments can write checks of any number for anything they want, why not go that far or further.  Concerning other things they are doing and wanting to spend money on, giving everyone a billion-dollar stimulus isn’t crazy.  It would be cheaper than many of their proposals.  So why limit a stimulus check to only $1400—for control.  To give the dog the illusion of freedom when the invisible fence only lets you travel a few feet from the house?  That we are supposed to believe that economic stimulation means the kind of junk you can buy with such a small check, a few bags of Skittles, and maybe a big-screen television.  But then again, who wants to waste money buying a tv when you can steal one at the subsequent Democrat-led community riot over race relations?  We learned that too this week, what Democrats think of race relations when they pummeled Tim Scott, a black Republican, for speaking after Biden’s speech about the state of the union.  They called him Uncle Tim to lynch him for being Republican just like Democrats did when they owned slaves leading up to the Civil War.  It wasn’t North and South that fought in that war to free the slaves; it was Republicans against Democrats. 

All this shows how dangerous ideas can be to stupid people who don’t have enough personal constitution to resist grabbing power over others to fulfill the fantasy of their sheer stupidity.  For the reasons I stated in the video, Joe Biden and other Democrats like Karl Marx start in the world as failures based on their thoughts.  Marx was a lazy guy who was looking for a way to bend the world to his sentiments.  Marx didn’t want to work as hard as Cornelius Vanderbilt and others did at that same time to acquire wealth and power. Marx wanted to sit in the British Museum contemplating history and theory. I’ve been to the spots where Marx studied so that I could understand something of his insanity on the subject.  I walked the streets around the area there, trying to understand how a person like Marx could have arrived at the ridiculous notions about the economic value created by the idea of communism, which has then poisoned the world terribly.  Lazy people love communism, and let’s face it, many people in the world are good for nothing and lazy to their core.  They have in Marx a means of gaining power in government and using that power to trade influence.  But like Joe Biden, who never learned the lessons of proper economic conduct and value, Democrats continue to embarrass themselves to the eyes of people who do know better. 

It is an honest assessment and not just hyperbole to suggest that Democrats are just lazy and stupid, especially when making and maintaining money.  For Biden to present with a straight face that taxation is an investment and that the more you do, the more you are investing for a better society is insanity on the level of Captain Nemo.  And we are expected to follow this insanity toward our destruction.   Never mind that Joe Biden and his investors who have propped him up are like every James Bond villain in the history of movies.  Of course, the villains never see themselves as such; they always think they are saving the world by killing everyone in it.  Or it is controlling them for their own good only the villains can see through insanity.  That is the real danger of Marxism.  It allows for such fantasies to exist in the minds of the stupid and lazy because it prevents any performance from seeing the light of day, and the rules of economic theory to permeate where it would otherwise not survive without a massive government to hide its faults from itself.  And suppose anybody thought Joe Biden was stupid before this point of referred time. In that case, they know they have confirmation of it by his mouth, and the notion of a fourth stimulus check to keep the monsters of opinion residing under the water for just a while longer.

The Merits of Dueling

The Merits of Dueling:

As I have said, I have been working on a new book called the Gunfighter’s Guide to Business and I’m about halfway through it.  For my readers of a long time here who have been sending me a lot of emails missing the daily articles, they will return.  But I offer this little sample of this “gunfighter” project to give a taste of what is to come.

The concept of getting “satisfaction” from a personal insult went a long way to establishing honor and proper conduct among business transactions, in the time before modern rules as we know them today. As we have seen often where various religions and their value are not unified, and therefore cannot be expected to hold up in a court of law, there needs to be a mechanism that brings about honor and to hold it into the context of moral conduct where villainy will quickly grow like a weed in a garden of dreams. Dueling in the classic sense, especially in the New World during the time of the American Revolution was an answer to this problem. And if there is an argument against the American Constitution for changes, it was in the original rules of the nation that mechanisms of honor were already established before the courts were needed.

In doing business in the orient, particularly in Japan where honor is still a respected trait, business transactions are accelerated because the interactions mean something with one another. This is obvious at the airports around Tokyo among men and women as respect is a universal language that makes interactions between people start on common ground. In the West we have allowed our own culture of respect to drift away into the more centralized regulation of the state which outlawed the practice of dueling essentially so that lawyers could profit off the instillation of justice. The cost was that individual satisfaction for an insult did not get the respect it deserved while the emphasis was on protecting society from itself by settling matters in a court of law. This has led our culture to adapt into a more passive aggressive society where trust isn’t always easy to find in other people. It could be argued that we were all better off when we tried to openly kill each other to protect a slight against our individual names.

Dueling was so common at the start of America that the governor of South Carolina wrote a book on it to make sure everyone did it right called The Code of Honor: Or Rules for the Government of Principals and Second in the Art of Dueling in 1834 by John Lyde Wilson. Dueling in the time of the Revolutionary War was quite common. While it was slowly going out of style at the start of the invention of a republic form of federal government once George Washington took office, in the South, particularly in Charleston, South Carolina where so many important battles occurred in defining freedom during the start of the new nation, dueling was so common that the governor felt compelled to create some legal means of settling disputes, which sounds barbaric compared to our modern legal system, but in hindsight seemed to generate more responsible people on an individual level. This certainly helped in business commerce, because if a business deal went bad, the parties may find themselves in the streets fighting to the death to obtain their satisfaction.

The important aspect of satisfaction is that the emphasis was on the individual reputations of the participants. It wasn’t some third party “state” that decided justice, it was the people at the heart of the conflict, and in many ways, society was more honorable. People had to treat each other individually better as a result. The more the states intruded on management of the affairs of people the more passive aggressive disputes have become leaving business conduct to suffer greatly. After the Civil War it was particularly immigrants from the South who moved West in search of gold and other opportunities, and they took with them the concept of dueling that had been very much a part of early American life. Dueling with fast draw had with it a way of bringing honor where there wasn’t yet law and it forced people to treat each other better and more honorably which is why there is still reverence for it.

At the state level we can all see today that the concept of taking honor and responsibility for good conduct away from individuals has been a mistake. While dueling was a violent concept the amount of people who died from it were arguably much less frequent than the kind of violence we see in modern times. That is why thinking in the way of the gunfighter is better than in the modern context of leaving disputes to be settled by those not directly responsible for the conduct, such as lawyers and the state as a legal entity. These days instead of getting satisfaction for an honor tainted we say “see you in court” instead of settling the matter right then and there. Then of course those who can pay for the best lawyer become the winners in most cases and the state enjoys the revenue and job opportunities that come from settling disputes. But what is lost is the individual responsibility for the actions taken and the merit of an honorable exchange. Taking the example of the famous duel between General Gladsten and General Howe in 1778, both Generals in the Revolution and were in a dispute over troop possession. They took to the streets of Charleston, South Carolina where many such duels were taking place at the time and when the time came stared each other down waiting for the other to make a move. After taunting each other for a good bit of time finally General Howe fired his pistol and clipped the ear of Gladsten. Gladsten in response, who was thought to be the John Adams of the south and inventor of the famous “Don’t Tread on Me” flag deliberately fired his shot into the ground inviting Howe to try again. Eventually the two men shook hands and that settled their dispute with only a minor injury occurring to Gladsten’s ear. Otherwise, the business between two major Revolutionary War figures was settled respectfully, something that certainly wouldn’t have occurred if the two had fought it out in court with lawyers acting as their pistols and fancy words spoken in legal jargon as bullets.

The point of the matter is not that dueling is a desired trait, or even that we should bring it back in the form that it was. Killing another person isn’t a desirable outcome for any dispute, but the finality of it tended to put in the participant’s minds the seriousness of an issue and this mindset certainly set the West and its expansion ablaze with activity that couldn’t have been regulated by any legal system at the rate that human ambition was expanding at the time. Honor was preserved by the potential for dueling and this threat allowed for proper respect when a nation needed it most. We could learn a lot from this period today where honor among business transactions is desperately lacking, particularly within the American borders. Other countries have their honor driven rituals and it is noticeable during business transactions. In the United States however, we have allowed our laws to be governed by lawyers and judges who take away the responsibility for personal conduct and place it in the hands of the state, and many of our businesses have followed. The impact has been a loss in honor among business interactions that has not been desirable. Yet honor could be restored if only we stepped back into hindsight and dusted off the values that did emerge from dueling and upgraded that sentiment for our modern needs which starts in thinking like a gunfighter.
