Understanding Natural Law: There is no place for communism, socialism or Marxism in the world

Not to make things overly simplified but what it all comes down to, it is about natural law and understanding it which makes up the divisions about everything in any culture.  If it is said today socially that we are a “divided nation” it is because the people of that society have different understandings of natural law.  The means for which people measure political affiliation is purposely disjointed, America has endured over 100 years of attack by foreign powers, by countries, banks, political idealists seeking desperately to hold on to their passive aggressive monarchies, their dictatorships, their centrally managed societies which give a few power at the top subjugating people under them in every way possible, just as the idea has recently been introduced to America through Covid-19.  We don’t have a political spectrum in America where the radical left are Antifa and the radical right are racist fascists like the Nazis.  Looked at that way everyone between that spectrum is a radical leftist, and to this day a vast majority of people have been deceived from birth into believing such a thing.  Yet, as I have said time and time again, the more people learn about life and about themselves, the more to the political right their personal ideologies move which was certainly the case in the United States during the formation of the country.  Because back then it was generally agreed upon what natural law was and the roots of it could be found in the pages of the Bible of Christian text.  But the aim of socialists, Marxists, Maoists, communists, progressives, all the same thing essentially by different names was to erase natural law from our institutions and our lives and replace it with the laws of whimsical men and women until a takeover of our great nation was fulfilled.  They didn’t think it would happen fast, but now that more than a century has transpired, the footprints of their movement are obvious to our eyes today, after the first four years of the Trump presidency. 

In the video above I gave what I think is a pretty good modern interpretation of what natural law is, for those who have lost touch to it.  People who are very religious, as the Trump legal team obviously is, have a trust in natural law that is naturally conducive to their studies of the Bible.  Its easy for them because they have already put their trust in the faith that it takes to be a religious subject.  Very religious people have already taken the step to accept the Bible’s definition for natural law by just accepting that things are what they are and that’s all there is to it.  However, and this is largely how the Marxist infiltration started in American colleges starting with 100 people in the 1905 group the ISS, (intercollegiate socialist society) which slow brewed socialism in various institutions over a long period of time.  For those who claim to be “smart people” or intellectual leaders of some kind, blind trust in faithful religions just wasn’t acceptable so they rejected the natural law of our Christian society and started leaning toward the laws of man for their political ideology.  And we’ve seen the result as frogs slowly being cooked after all these years toward socialism and communism with the temperature slowly being turned up at our education institutions since that 1905 date.  What I share with them is that I don’t just blindly follow anything.  My life is not ruled by faith, but by reason and logic.  However, the easy way for looking at something is to either reject a premise like natural law because it requires faith to believe it, or scholastic evidence to reject it, as our colleges and public schools have done, especially under the guidance from communist inspired labor unions.  My argument however would be that everyone is wrong and that they should have pushed themselves for the answers intellectually, because the true answer to natural law requires a bigger view of existence than what has been known two thousand years in the past. 

I would state emphatically that natural law is present in the positioning of Jupiter in our solar system, which has allowed earth to happen with life on it as the big planet has acted as a vacuum cleaner in space to suck away gravitationally all the asteroids that might have destroyed the earth over the last 30,000 years of human development.  Asteroids do get through and strike the earth, but at a much less rate than if Jupiter wasn’t where it was in our solar system.  Perhaps Jupiter has given the human race just enough time to evolve into a thinking species that could escape earth and flee to space for its continued survival before the next asteroid does get by Jupiter and strikes the earth.  We could also look at our own immune systems and say that the plight of our white blood cells is to fight off invaders in the form of disease.  Or on a more grand scale, perhaps that is the point of our entire universe, to act within a body of many universes according to the many thoughts of multiverse quantum understanding in advanced physics where there are more than 10 dimensions that are interacting with us all the time.  The “creator” may well be the body we all fight to keep alive just as our own bodies have many such cells keeping us alive, and within them, perhaps an infinite parade of fighters and seekers of justice to do their part to make our body good and whole.  Natural law may very well postulate that the purpose of our very existence all across our known universe is to keep that cell healthy and doing the good work of justice within the very body of God, for which he, she, or it is just one massive body of billions all fighting it out on a cosmic plane inconceivable to our point of view, but that natural law agrees on any scale is the right thing to do.  Therefore, the United States was formed to make our universe healthy and whole for the purpose of justice in a multiverse of teaming life. 

And from that perspective, the morality for the Constitution of the United States could and should be accepted even by those who struggle with faith in what they can’t see understanding that such laws permeate everything that existence is built upon.  And for that reason, we should fight for it.  The thoughts of Marxism that have corrupted our minds for so many years are those very viruses we are meant to fight to do our part to keep life happy and thriving even if its just here on earth in our countries and homes, or whether we are on the other side of the universe millions of years from now, which to the universe might only be a second of cosmic time, the rules still apply and the work we do today is just as relevant as the world of tomorrow.  And knowing all that, we cannot afford to be a divided species, nor can we be accepting of other ideas as if the world were big enough for all thoughts and feelings co-existing.  A virus wants to kill the body and that is what communism, socialism, and Marxism have wanted from the beginning and there is no co-habitation with them.  The only law that matters in the world, or in the universe is natural law, our idea of God simplified for our very minds through the invention of the Bible so many years ago.  But we know more now than we did then, and natural law is just as relevant as it was for the traditional Bible thumpers.  It wasn’t that faith was the prerequisite for understanding the magic of America’s constitution, or Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations, but it was in the scale for which these things were measured.  And when that scale has matured, the key to life and happiness is always within the beauty of natural law.

Why I Call Myself Cliffhanger: Stopping the long standing suffering of the philosopher at the hands of “democracy”

As I said in the video above, I’m not trying to sell you a book.  This book that I’m talking about is The Symposium of Justice that was published in 2004.  It has been out there for a while and long ago stopped giving any substantial income on its sales, which is fine with me.  It was a bit of a big deal in the 2000s, before Barack Obama was elected, I met some interesting people in Hollywood because of it, people actually liked it so much that they wanted to make a movie out of it twice.  But I learned more about the world from that book and my observations which have only become more acute over the years than the opposite reaction that usually permeates.  My problem at the time which is now more illustrated than ever are that the great philosophers of any time are usually killed or driven insane because their observations often stir up the leeches of democracy so intently that to preserve themselves from the needed social changes they would have to embark on to survive in the change state of the philosopher in question, they’d be at a loss.  So, the plots to kill and destroy the new thoughts become a priority and history tells the same story over and over. 

People have been asking why I stopped using my real name on these articles and have instead been referring to myself as Cliffhanger.  Well, to be honest it is because of the events of 2020 that I have found all the strength needed to deal with the problems from my old book.  When I wrote it everyone, especially the agents on Wilshire Blvd, several which were really into The Symposium of Justice, not necessarily due to its literary quality, but conceptually.  I wrote the book when I was in my early 30s as a direct experience I had with local politics and dealings with the FBI and a mayor at the time where to correct the situation the only options was violence because what was being covered up was the same thing that killed off a long string of philosophers from Socrates, Cicero, Nietzsche and even in a more modern sense, Robert Pirsig.  My thoughts were that if people were going to be free to think in big ways, philosophically, then they should also learn to kick some serious ass, to preserve their minds long enough for the attackers to have their schemes beaten, and themselves destroyed for their ill intentions.  Like I say a lot, I’m not a kiss and tell type, but there were some A listers in Hollywood on the production side and actor side who were into The Symposium of Justice and there were lots of philosophic beliefs that are filled in its pages.  But for all the reasons that Cicero was murdered by the plots of Mark Antony and is crazy wife, I found myself operating something of a philosophic underground which within a few years, became the blog site, Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom.  The rest is history.

Up until this year to keep the memory alive of the titled character in The Symposium of Justice I have been using the name Cliffhanger in my shooting sports, especially Cowboy Fast Draw.  When I interact with that group they never call you by name, but by your alias.   I’ve gotten used to it so much that now, especially with the events of 2020 and my growing pride in the work I did with The Symposium it has now become second nature to me and an official name I am using.  The problem at the time with The Symposium was that it was way too far out there for most people at the time. I mean the idea that a huge international organization called “The System” conspiring together to control the minds of people through radio towers that manipulated the pituitary gland of people to inspire them into consumer behavior in a maddening plot to take over the world seemed pretty far fetched even for lovers of science fiction and dystopia.  Then to have an action hero who is a part time grill cook at a local restaurant called Republics, but at night a menace to the villains violently and unstoppable stretched belief too far.  As a throwback to Zorro or Batman, Cliffhanger was something else, more of a character out of an Ayn Rand novel.  But instead of fleeing to the mountains to avoid a tyrannical government Cliffhanger was beating to a pulp the villains of The System with bullwhips to the point of audacious vigilante justice forcing anybody to contemplate the nature of law and order, which was the point of the book.   

Not to give away the ending, which I won’t for those who haven’t read it, but it was based on a real event and was my final statement on what justice meant to a society.  In it a hit man has figured out who Cliffhanger is and he’s about to kill his family in a restaurant for the spectacular fear it would generate in the community and thus, the fear that would follow making it easier for The System to control the thoughts and actions of the residents—long before there was a thought of Covid-19 or Covid-20.  Once the hitman realized what a good person Cliffhanger and his family were he realized what a loser he had been and figured that to redeem himself even a little during his life that he’d commit to that act immediately so instead of even trying to kill Cliffhanger, he would instead kill himself and do one good thing in the world as a last act, which after a lot of violence, is precisely what he did.  When you write something like these thoughts collected in The Symposium of Justice, but at the time George Bush was the president and nobody was really talking about the deeper conspiracies of government except for the real loons of extremism, it was a tough concept to grapple with, which is what happened in Hollywood.  Their comments to me was “couldn’t we have more action with the bullwhips and less philosophic talk?  If that was possible, we could make a deal.”  I of course said that wasn’t possible and would water down the point of the book.  They’d of course say that people would still read the book in bigger numbers so it would be good for marketing.  It happens all the time. I would say, but it would die a B movie death which is actually worse than not being made into a movie at all.  That kind of thing went on for two years then died on the vine when Obama was elected president.  Then I turned my eyes toward the Tea Party movement and away from the entertainment industry. 

Yet the book and all its conspiracy came true in 2020.  You could change the water towers into cell phones, and the United Nations into The System but the efforts were the same and I had spelled it all out in The Symposium of Justice so many years ago, and I was proud of it.  Because if I could nail down all that looking forward, then I could nail down the path out of the storm, and as a crisis in our lives, it showed me that I had the proper flashlight to get out of it and to show people how they can get there too.  So, it has been with great pride that out of the mess of 2020 and massive disappointments that I have had in our government, with the exception of Trump, I have been thinking of my talks with industry people about politics and entertainment and I am very happy with my work on The Symposium of Justice.  It wasn’t easy to write, it wasn’t easy to hear the criticisms, and I often felt like Cicero.  Only I never accepted that “democracy,” that foolish notion that the masses have more intelligence than an individual through collective salvation, and that the secret to beating them all I had touched that long ago filled me with a pride that felt more like a breakthrough.  And for that, I sign each of these articles appropriately, and with great enthusiasm.  I don’t fear at all death or insanity perhaps for the first time since a collection of cells made up a human body.  And within that admission, a real hope for the future is visible.

The Terrorist Gretchen Whitmer: And her FBI conspirators against Trump

Wait a minute, we are supposed to accept that 13 terrorists were plotting to kidnap and possibly kill the tyrant Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer based on the investigation of the same FBI who worked with the Hillary Clinton campaign to cover for her destroyed emails and the Russian Hoax to disguise that scandal in a hope to overturn the 2016 election of Donald Trump?  (6 arrested on federal charges, another 7 on state charges)  In a week where Democrats have looked pretty terrible due to the president overcoming the Covid-19 virus and being restored to the public without quarantine just a week after getting the diagnosis, and a week after the Michigan Supreme Court ruled against Whitmer’s emergency order mandates in reaction to the virus, which has destroyed many millions of lives, we are supposed to believe her?  The timing of the accusation against a militia group that was talking on social media of taking action against the Michigan Governor because they saw no other recourse, this being months before the Supreme Court finally got around to a ruling justified their arrest for calling her names, scouting out her property, and buying a taser justified a full press conference that went national essentially to attempt to blame their actions on President Trump because nothing else had been working in the months leading up to the 2020 election.  There was some kind of assumption that wanting to retake control of the government out of control in Michigan was bad, and even a terrorist act.

Well, where were all these arrests as Democrats and big donors were plotting to overwhelm our cities with rioters, where Antifa groups (which these guys arrested sounded like they were) and Black Lives Matters activists were literally beating and killing people in our streets all summer and terrorizing people in the suburbs with threats of violence?  Those events were organized on social media, where was the FBI on those cases to bust up the rings of terrorism?  Where are the arrests of those government organizers who are actively seeking to destroy the American Constitution?  If the FBI is paying attention to 13 supposed “right winged” conspirators, what about all the left-winged attackers?  We all know the answer.  Gretchen Whitmer lost a supreme court case, she has hell coming her way due to her massive abuses of power, and she is hoping that the Democrat Party will give her a future for being a good “radical” against the Trump administration in an important time in the election, and she is using this story at the expense of the 13 people supposedly involved in the plot to give her a cover story to deflect her own crimes from the public eye.

Let’s think about how serious this is for a moment, this arrest of some people who were calling Gretchen Whitmer names over computer networks and how the FBI was able to use that information to make arrests.  So far it appears that all these people did was talk about bringing harm to Whitmer, which I have heard just about everyone say lately, from Wal-Mart to our neighborhood McDonald’s.  When a governor like Whitmer abuses her authority as grossly as she did and it destroys jobs and people’s lives the way it has, what are people supposed to do if they can’t call on the law to save them from the tyranny?  These people were looking at their constitutional options as a means to fix it, which is perfectly understandable.  Until that Supreme Court judgment last week, these 13 people had a good case for recourse.    But what’s troubling about this issue is that they were arrested just for “thinking about it” which is a very real kind of Minority Report type of government passing judgment against others to protect itself from their own mistakes.  To set the premise that people can be arrested for free speech because the contents are deemed dangerous by those who are in an authority position.  That is very bad, and scary stuff—no wonder those guys were thinking what they were thinking.  Sounds justified to me.  If the law only serves those in power, then what are people supposed to do to defend themselves?

Gretchen Whitmer and many others in government forget that she is an employee of the people who voted for her, she is not an empress.  The government is there to serve the people, not to subject the people to the rules of a tyrant.  If an elected official begins to show the signs of a tyrant, it is not enough to say wait until the next election and vote them out.  We did vote for President Trump and look how this system has treated him.  They have tried to erase our decisions as a free people and show us that we are under their control, and they have used this Covid-19 virus as a means to abuse emergency powers to gain more authority.  That is the real issue, and for these people arrested by the FBI, they were seeing the writing on the wall and they were doing what they thought they had to do in order to protect a country they love.  That’s not racist or “Right Winged.”  It is the attack of left-winged progressives that are trying to push the political spectrum so far to the communist left, then redefining the political parameters that is the issue.  It is the change state that the political left has implemented that has caused the tension.  Then trying to use that change state to paint Bill of Rights supporters or Constitutional purists as crazy radical terrorists.  No, the terrorists are the change agents who call themselves radicals who are abusing the law and causing all the trouble, including with this particular case involving Whitmer.

For me, the FBI lost its moral authority during the Trump cases, so I don’t believe anything they are doing now.  Picking on these 13 people who talked about kidnapping Whitmer in order to save their idea of the Constitution is pretty reprehensible when you consider that there are far worse conversations going on out there, especially on the political left, and the ballot harvesting plans.  For the FBI to pick on this one case to give Whitmer something else to talk about other than her massive Supreme Court loss shows a federal division that is still willing to help Democrats win elections against the people’s choice of Donald Trump.  The timing of the story couldn’t be worse—it shows the guilt of a complicit FBI to pick and choose their cases based on political merit, not in the blind pursuit of justice, which is why those people in that so-called militia group felt they had no other recourse but violence.  Yet they hadn’t acted toward that violence and the FBI arrested them anyway, a week after the Supreme Court case.  I’d be willing to bet the results of that case would have quelled the plans of the militia so why arrest them now?  Well, because the FBI wanted to help a sister out in Whitmer, and they wanted to help shape the results of the election as the Governor tried to use the arrests as an attack on Trump now that he was triumphantly beating on his chest for surviving Covid-19—the very virus she had been using to grab for so much power.  With Trump getting over the virus, and people realizing that most of what the news has told us about the coronavirus of 2020 was complete bullshit, Whitmer had to get control of the dialogue, so for that 13 people were arrested and accused of crimes against the state.  But as it is obvious, it is the state that committed all the crimes.

Government Can’t Make You Wear A Mask: Seeking to cover up a massive crime including many murders

I’ve explained the nonsense about wearing a mask in public many times during the Covid-19 “plandemic” but something people need to understand is that you do have a right and obligation to fight back at government if they issue you a ticket or a citation for not wearing one as many mayors and governors have begun to mandate, especially in places like downtown Cincinnati. Now for the life of me, I can’t imagine why anybody would want to go to downtown Cincinnati with all the Black Lives Matter protests, many of the nicer restaurant shut down, no sports going on, the museums micromanaged to the point where social distancing mandates ruin the experience. But some likely have to interact with government services and to do that the mask mandate is something they will have to be concerned about and for those occurrences it is important to remember that the government has no right whatsoever to demand that people wear those stupid masks. Government doesn’t own public space; they don’t dictate what goes on outside. They can give a recommendation, and that’s it. Any government that says they can fine you or punish you for not complying with their mask mandates is lying to you and they deserve to be punished.

The mask mandate for employees is a bit of a different story, unfortunately state government has its fingers in commerce to an unreasonable level and they can mandate the wearing of a mask if you want to make money in the normal way. Government unreasonably controls the means of production in every state jurisdiction so challenging the mask mandates is a bit trickier. But legally, it is quite clear, government cannot compel people to wear masks in public under any conditions on fake emergency powers and a façade of concern over people’s safety. There is one reason and only one reason that government wants to mandate the wearing a masks in public and that is to cover up their criminal behavior in what they did to our lives and our economy in their neurotic reaction to Covid-19.

By forcing you to wear a mask, government is forcing you to accept that Covid-19 is dangerous, and so long as people believe that, government can justify all the trillions of dollars of damage they have caused by letting a stupid virus get out of control in the public. Wearing a mask in public is an admission that lets the government off in the many thousands of court cases where they will be sued from now until eternity for the many constitutional violations they have imposed on free people and so long as people are wearing masks in public, it is a cover story for the actions of government.

The threat of a fine, or to suffer some punishment from government for not giving them a cover story for how they mismanaged Covid-19 is not only insane, but it is against all laws in every conceivable way. If government went out and committed murder, which in many ways they have, the murderer cannot go out and put guns of a similar caliber in the hands of the public to make it hard to prove who killed who. That is what the mandate for masks is a way to throw off any blame that might come down on government for mismanaging the coronavirus crises. We can talk about well-intentioned emergency powers trying to protect the public from a safety crises, the interpretation of what elected officials should do under ill-defined health concerns—but when government causes the death of people through micromanaging them, and it ruins the lives of millions of people, then someone has to pay. And they don’t get to hide behind perpetual emergency powers to keep people on their heels and out of the lawyer’s office with more lawsuits. The whole point of the masks is not to protect other people from you, or to mitigate any kind of impact from Covid-19, it is to cover up a crime.

The slowing the spread strategy that government has enacted toward the coronavirus started off as a well-intentioned exercise. It was kind of like a child using a gun and shooting someone who steps into their house late at night while the kid is terrified of whomever is trying to get through their front door. Once inside and after shots are fired the kid realizes that they had just shot and killed their drunk father who had lost his keys at the house of a mistress and was impatient to get inside so he could crash into his bed and sleep off his drunkenness. Everyone was guilty of something in that case but they all could explain their actions away with some “good intention.” Yet murder was the result. That is much the way government had screwed the pooch on Covid-19. For all the malicious intentions that Covid-19 entered our lives, government was like the kid who just shot at it not knowing all the details, and what we ended up with was a dead economy, a political situation that favored the Democrats desperate for some way to win something in the upcoming fall elections. And once they realized their crime, they sought to cover it up with more safety mandates that would keep people from discovering just how stupid they reacted over the coronavirus from the beginning.

Sure, hindsight is 20/20 and there are lots of government officials who regret their panic and would likely do it over again differently. But that doesn’t change the fact that the media drove the story for political reasons and many of them were caught as suckers. Yet it doesn’t mean they get to fine us and punish us for not following their cover story—that the virus was dangerous and what they are doing in reaction to it was for the good of the public. No, what they did was only good for them and they are seeking to make the public play along with their defense. After all, who would bring forth a lawsuit against government while there are mask mandates for the population in general? It sort of drives home to any judge that the government at least believes that what it is doing has the best interest for the public in mind. If that were to come into question, then what judge could say otherwise about any of their judgments?

The wearing of the masks creates something of a legal paradox that keeps the government off the hook for a while, and that’s all its about. But know this, they can’t make you wear the damn things. Government can’t even keep the streets safe from anarchists and race baiters, and they think they have a right to issue you a ticket for not wearing a mask? Please………….that is as grotesque an abuse of the law as there is in our legal system. And for what, to cover up their much bigger crimes of tampering with our economy, destroying our jobs, and ruining lives in just about every way that they could—because essentially they were the dumb, ignorant kid who used a gun they knew nothing about to shoot their drunk dad who was out in the night with ill intentions and malice, yet found themselves shot dead trying to get back into the house by their panicky child. Government hopes that by wearing the mask, people won’t see what idiots they were. But day by day, the more rules they come up with, the more they confirm it.

Calling the Bluff of Government on Covid-19: They want you to bend the knee to the virus with a mask

If you haven’t figured it out yet and are still terrified of every little thing that Dr. Fauci says, there are a few things to remember, even though I have been explaining it to you Dear Reader for months. The purpose of the testimony that Fauci and others gave on Capital Hill this week was to panic the public into complying with their interpretation of the virus, Covid-19. And “they” meaning the political forces against President Trump and his supporters felt they had to turn up the heat after Trump’s Oklahoma Rally recently and the follow-up in Arizona to prevent the campaign from resuming the big rallies for which Biden could in no way compete. The Democrats have such a bad candidate that the media—who have proven themselves to be nearly entirely trained Marxists these days—and radicals for their cause, are propping Joe Biden up ridiculously at this point. They know he can never go toe to toe with Trump, so they are trying to change the rules of the game to make it easier to help out Joe Biden. Covid-19 isn’t about saving lives, its about helping Democrats win elections in the fall—and nothing else.

You can know that government is lying to you by their choice in measurements. Dr. Doom Fauci himself tried to jump out of the closet during his testimony to yell, “boo” hoping to rattle America back into closures which some of the red state governors fell for under great pressure. Government doesn’t have a right to close down bars, or anything for that matter. Government should never be in the way of economic commerce. If they aren’t there to help grow it, then they need to get out of the way. Using a virus as an excuse to throttle economic activity, which they hope and pray will still be an issue at the time of the upcoming election, is criminal conduct to drive home the issue and get people to buy in to the massive levels of corruption they need to force Americans to bend the knee to the virus with the mandating of masks to sell the implications to an otherwise innocuous issue. But concern is not what anybody should feel, because essentially what the election is forcing, and Trump’s response to it, is to push the CDC and its Marxist surrogates to go all in, which Fauci did by stating there could be up to 100,000 cases per day. Well, so what if there is? Who cares?

You see, the government has been trying to sell to you that cases are the same as death, even after they are literally sending in the National Guard to help conduct testing so they can get more results of cases, faster. In this way they can use “cases” to justify the trillions of dollars that the dummy government types have wasted on panic, and on political action to alter the course of the election. Additionally, these same dummies are all in on contact tracing, mandated vaccine development, and the scheme to continue the socialization of medicine, enact Agenda 21 strategies from the United Nations, and a whole host of other goals, none of which involve saving lives because lives aren’t unusually in danger due to the virus. The push would be to trace every virus in this same way now that they have started it, to justify getting suckered into it in the first place. So, yes, they are going all in on this Covid-19 issue because they have no choice in the matter now that they have put so much on the line. But they don’t have the cards. Once people realize that death and cases are not connected, the scare literally loses its meaning and this whole argument will abate embarrassingly into nothing.

Anybody who willingly wears a mask is an idiot. If some place of business requires the masks, then people should honor their rules, but otherwise, it’s a dumb acknowledgement to bend the knee to a virus the government reports it has no control over. Yet the government is using that lack of control to control election politics and the happiness of people in general. Again, I’m not going to kiss and tell but I have been in conversations recently with high level people, and I can tell you, they are not very smart. One of those people was Dummy Mike DeWine who said that one of his jobs as governor of the state of Ohio was to protect the lives of those most vulnerable. Auhh, the Constitution doesn’t say that anywhere, that is every bit as dumb as when John Kasich justified Medicaid expansion “socialized medicine” because he thought God told him to. Breaking the law, shutting down businesses, and expanding government out of some interpretation of a job description doesn’t make power grabs any more justified. When DeWine and other government losers like Nancy Pelosi advocate wearing masks in public it is to get you to bend the knee to their bad decisions and acknowledge their power to manipulate the public in the way they are by yielding to their power. If they say the situation is dangerous, then by God, it is.

Well, its not. In a few weeks even with 100,000 cases per day, or 500,000 cases per day, it won’t change the outcome. Hospitals won’t be overrun. Medical staff might have to work and not play on their phones all day, but our health care system will be just fine. One thing that the Marxist media hasn’t been reporting is that hospital discharges are occurring as fast as people are incoming, meaning, people are getting over Covid-19 and getting back to their lives quickly. Government doesn’t want anybody to know that, they want to slow the spread so that it lasts until the election. They want to have the power to shut down businesses when someone comes down with Covid and to take them off the job for 14 days, and mandate that all the people they contacted do the same, not for safety, but to slow the spread and keep this story alive until the election. And if we don’t cave into their fears, and we just keep chugging along economically, people will see for themselves that the Covid-19 thing was a lie from the beginning, and its going to piss them off.

Yes, losing sports for most of the year was unnecessary, not being able to drink with friends at a bar or pub was foolish. Wearing around a stupid mask was completely dumb and useless. It was a fake crises, a real virus, but the government reaction to it was purely politically and globally strategic. The goal of Covid-19 was to sucker Donald Trump to play along to his own election detriment. And he did play along for a while, but he’s seen the light and there is an election to win. Out of all the fake polling that is going on out there to shape public opinion, if Trump took a hit, it was because his supporters were disappointed in him for playing along. The media wants nothing more than for Trump to wear a mask in public to bend the knee to a virus. Rather Trump and the people who will be voting for him want to dominate the virus. Americans don’t hide and kneel to a sickness, and they don’t ruin their economy to them, ever. It happened thus far because people got caught trusting people like Fauci. Well, he cried wolf too many times, and we found out the wolf was a little midget puppy dog, nothing to be concerned with. And in a few weeks, the government will have to admit to it once they see that the people are rejecting their premise, and at that point, there will be nothing to stop the hatred of government that comes thereafter.

General Flynn is the Key to the Whole Story: It all comes back to covering high crimes conducted by Biden and the Obama Administration

It was a little astonishing that media outlets were urging Trump supporters not to spike the football after General Flynn’s case was dismissed by a federal appeals court this week. There was a subtle warning that in so doing, Flynn and the Trump team in general might bring more trouble upon themselves, which was more than insulting. In fact, it was beyond arrogant. After all, if we peeled back the onion of Covid-19, of the daily race riots, of the collapsed global economy, we would find out that all of it was essentially to cover up the grand scandal of the Obama administration tampering with the 2016 election and seeking to use tax payer funded organizations, such as the Department of Justice and the FBI to overturn an American election and get rid of the people’s pick in that election turnout. It is in fact a scandal so large that most people simply can’t get their minds around it. It was so evil and malicious that good people refuse to believe that a small group of billionaires have that much power of American affairs and willingly wish to destroy the American Constitution to fulfill at any cost their own version of global unity, ruled by them of course. But the Flynn case is the biggest thing to happen in American politics, or world affairs in the history of the nation, and at the heart of the whole thing is Joe Biden, who is trying to beat Trump in the next election. With Flynn’s case dropped, a great well of fear bellowed from the Deep State and the ramifications of it are just becoming clear.

To understand this story you have to understand dear reader that we live under an unfulfilled pretense of freedom. Our American Constitution is but a bunch of paper with ideas written upon them, just as our other founding documents. If everyone doesn’t agree to them, typically with an acknowledgement to the flag in some respectful way, then we can’t be said to have any law and order. Now when I talk about a few billionaires who are trying to rule the world I am of course talking about people like Bill Gates, George Soros, Mike Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Oprah—those types of people who are very rich, and are very progressive in their ideas. They have homes all over the world and no longer think of the United States as a sacred place. Instead, they want a global society where they can be part of the leadership and many people would be surprised how much normal people would sacrifice of their own liberty to get a little bit of the money these people have. These billionaires have quickly learned that its not documents and laws that people follow, its money and if they can get some of it by sucking up and doing very little work, they will happily be controlled by whomever just to get their hands on a little for themselves. That’s why we had to elect a fellow billionaire to compete against them, to play the real game they have been playing all along. Conventional politics was never going to work.

These billionaires have allowed us when it was convenient to them, to let us think that our Constitutions were important because it helps coral us into places where they can control us. They may not like those constitutional ideas, but if they see us migrating to them, they at least know how to control our minds in their favor. So understanding how all those mechanisms work, particularly through media companies always hungry for revenue which these types of people give them, that reporters are much more interested in making news than reporting it. They are much more interested in advancing Marxist ideas they learned in college then in using the 1st Amendment to defend a civil society. And that’s how the whole coronavirus got out of control. That’s how they planned to overthrow Trump from the presidency. Its also how they were able to provoke race riots to reactivate the Democrat base after Joe Biden really screwed up by what he said about black people.

Most of us have a feeling that these forces were always working against us, but so long as we get a little piece of the pie, and can enjoy our culture of sports and movies, we don’t say much about it. We certainly aren’t provoked to fight them over our rights. If they give us the illusion of freedom, most people are happy to take it even if deep down inside they are a little miserable from the experience. Most of the time, the ugliness of how everything works is kept from our eyes and we don’t notice how the game works, that is, until we have an election where the billionaires do care about the results for their own sake, and they break the rules to keep order for their own minds. Which is what happened to President Trump when people shocked the world and voted him into office to manage their affairs and people like Michael Flynn were attacked as collateral damage to keep that order in place. And the result is that the rule of law had to be tested and measured in a way that nobody thought would ever happen. And now its at the center of the entire presidential campaign for 2020. With General Flynn being finally freed of the charges brought against him, the entire political base of the opposing party, and the long-placed schemes created by billions and billions, and trillions and trillions of dollars is suddenly shattered, and suddenly, history is not so well scripted.

You must look beyond what the media is showing you every day. The coronavirus is a fake measurement never before conducted not for our safety, but to take our eyes off the real prize, the Obama administration’s global activism of turning America into a global Marxist state to be placed under the control of the United Nations. And the race riots are simply lots of stupid people provoked to be the attackers of capitalism and to erase the history of the Democrat Party in an election year where their dark history to slavery might be hidden to keep the black population in their corner because they know they’ll need every vote they can get their hands on to have a chance to stay in power. They know that no matter how much money the billionaires give them that they are rooted in a dark past and their future intentions are garbage, and people finally know it and have been sticking up for themselves through President Trump. And they never intended for the 74-year-old to make it this far. If they didn’t get rid of him through process, they might pressure him until he keels over dead. Whatever it took. What was never foreseen was that there would be a day where a staunch Trump supporter like General Flynn might not rot in jail, but would be instead free to join the campaign once again and deliver the goods against a corrupt government and media that had him dead to rights.

Yeah, don’t let them distract you from the real issue, all the crazy stuff in the media—all of it, is mostly fake and designed to keep people from understanding what happened to General Flynn and what role the Obama administration abused government power to advance global political interests. But some of us have known, and before its all said and done, many more will too. The cat is out of the bag and the creatures of the swamp in Washington D.C. are exposed, and they don’t like it. And of course, that exposes others as well. And for the first time in history, literally, those documents of our founding might finally get a fair shake, because once you sever the ties to these corrupt global interests which always stood in the way, you get a truth for which they were written, and that is worth all the pain we are currently feeling, and then some.

Cincinnati’s Channel 12 Kicking Kids off a Playground: Lapdogs of the state and the mistakes of Coronavirus

The smoke is clearing, and we can start to see how all this happened, the shutting down of America over a virus. We’ve wondered about it for years, but this is the first time really that the United States surrendered its freedoms and constitutional parameters to join the world in a mass neurosis led by a global institution in the World Health Organization into government imposing itself on the citizens of America all in the name of well-intended safety. It had the stamp of radical socialists all over it from the beginning, but when they (professional scientists) tell you that millions upon millions of people are going to die, and you are a president of the United States, or a governor, you have to listen, and that was the flaw from the beginning. This attack on American life was intended to paralyze logic and it was shocking how quickly normal people were willing to throw out their constitution in the blink of an eye when faced with the possibility of mass death.

I have seen some of the ugliest behavior of the human condition since the start of this thing, particularly the disgusting behavior of the news media in stepping in to be the lap dogs of government. One of the worst things I saw was a Channel 12 reporter in Cincinnati who saw kids playing on a playground during the government ordered lockdown and they contacted police. The police were terrified to do their normal work because of this social distancing mandate that the government released so they weren’t taking normal calls from car accidents or small crimes, but they sure didn’t hold back to come to that playground to make the kids go back to their homes while they put police tape over the entrance. It was one of the lowest cases of human behavior I have ever seen, and it showed me exactly why we need the Second Amendment. It had only been a few weeks of the government essentially throwing away all due process and the human condition resorted to a very petty place of intellect. Our local news stations seeking ratings gold from an audience literally told by their government to stay in doors had a captive audience which they instantly did their part as law enforcers of the state to enforce the governor’s overstepping of his power.

I know what I’m willing to do to preserve my freedom and over this crises it almost came to that several times. Luckily, I have a lot more tools in the toolbox than just to get pissed off, so using those tools I found myself understanding completely the role of Oskar Schindler as depicted in the great movie, Schindler’s List. The Nazis did not just wake up one day and throw everyone into concentration camps, it happened over a period of time where every few days and weeks more compliance was imposed on the Jews until ultimately they were put in camps and killed, except for the people Schindler saved by deeming them necessary for work. I went through that kind of process and while death wasn’t the end result of people not on my list, the process was very similar, and it was stunning how many people followed so blindly. If there had been a train going to a concentration camp, people would have gotten on it to their deaths, for the good of everyone else. It was eerily similar and a real shock to my system to witness. Its one thing to intellectually know something, its quite another to see it in reality and to confirm your worst suspicions.

There was a period in Ohio where Governor DeWine and is health director Amy Acton took more rights away from the people of the state every single day starting with restaurant attendance then collapsing with literal house arrest. In a stunning move the mayor of Cincinnati was encouraging police to question why people were out on the roads, or why businesses might still be open. And the news media fell right in line like the Nazis of Hitler to enforce those laws. If an establishment was found to be open, the police came and boarded it up without question and politicians like that mayor, and several governors around the United States started to feel the power of their position and were clearly abusing it. All over a relatively mind virus that likely wouldn’t kill in the end more than .2%. For everyone else, it would feel just like another case of a mild flu. But for that we were turned literally into zombies of the state driven by a hungry media looking for full compliance driven by interests coming from outside the nation. The rest of the world was behaving just as badly, but for the first time, we followed some unelected bureaucrats at the World Health Organization without questioning their motives and the effects were truly troubling.

I had been warning everyone from the very first hour of this thing that none of it made sense, that we shouldn’t be listening to these health professionals because they were essentially repackaging the desires of their New Green Deal into “health awareness” by issuing out fake model projections that grossly overstated the danger in order to force compliance under which we foolishly gave them control. Amy Acton in Ohio was the best example of how a liberal college professor type suddenly became our ruler in chief with the stroke of a few pens, and suddenly we went from a free people prosperous and with bright futures to hiding in our homes hoping that the police didn’t pull us over or arrest us for trying to play on a playground. People like her believe hype with too much trust on international communities of scientists without the extra scrutiny that a person like me might bring to the table. Instead of being one of the logical leaders, all opinions of legislature was thrown out the window in the blink of an eye, the voters were now irrelevant as we even changed the date on an election, and the most panic driven lunatics were now telling the rest of us how to live and to what extent. It was amazing to watch.

Of course, as of this writing I’m speaking in past tense because most readers of this article won’t see it until its over and well documented into history. But the lessons must be understood. The models that people like Amy Acton used to take away so many rights of Ohio citizens, and eventually of other states from copycat governors afraid to not join the mob of insanity, found that the numbers were grossly inflated. The Trump administration started backing off those numbers this week when the situation became clear to them that this Coronavirus was no more dangerous to people than the common flu. It’s a hard position to walk back after literally scaring everyone to death, but that process started and now everyone has egg on their face from their overreaction. Its not enough to say, “sorry, we cost you several trillion dollars and we added reprehensibly to the national debt, we’ll do better next time.” No, that’s not going to fly. I can say that I won’t forget it. I’ve seen now martial law and it was the ugliest thing I never want to see again. Emergency powers driven by panic, a lack of skill and coming from interests outside of the United States are not acceptable and we all have a lot of work to do to make sure it never happens again—because the next time—-well, lets just not go there.

The China Virus isn’t what’s Dangerous: Government is the threat and at the center of all this is climate change radicalism

I really don’t like being conspiratorial, but logic demands that we question sheer stupidity, which is what our government has been engaged in. We are supposed to believe that the same idiots who have been monitoring Donald Trump, and the rest of us—shadow banning, blacklisting, and threats of every kind—legal and not legal, which even has members of the FBI, IRS, DOJ and even foreign governments working on their behalf—that they suddenly are very smart and can tell us what is good and bad with this China Virus (corona—Wuhan, Covid-19—whatever the hell you want to call it) But nobody has answered a very basic question about all the actions that have been taken over the last couple of weeks, which has essentially shut down the American economy. That question is, regardless of how many people get tested, what are we supposed to do with the people who test positive? There isn’t any cure—not really unless we are going to count the new news about the Malaria drug that has been shown to “virologically” cure patients. We are supposed to believe that the same panicky climate scientists, like Amy Acton from Ohio are suddenly the smartest and most trusted people in the world and that we should take their dictates without question and do whatever they say, including giving employees temperature readings before showing up for work—those who still do work since the government has given the entire American workforce a written excuse to use every little sniffle to stay home and work from there—isolated and afraid? If you can’t smell the rat dear reader, then you have lost all sense of smell, because this sucker stinks badly.

As a Trump supporter, I have to think he wasn’t ready for an attack this massive, a global media epidemic that is a monster with no apparent head that is attacking the economy of the entire world to spread a communist message by appealing to the most extreme fears of mankind. His mistake was to let these Obama holdovers at the CDC have a mic and to start speaking fear and loathing making them stars over night using over reaction to spike up their audience. But what choice did he have, he could call bull shit and would have been massacred nightly on television by a media already poised to run with this story through the Bill Gates efforts of planting the seeds for this event years ago by socializing it to an audience of young kids who are afraid of their own shadows. And for them we are supposed to throw logic out the window. At a UDF in Port Union Ohio a friend of mine went there for lunch to get some toilet paper for which there were three rolls. He was confronted by an angry man who demanded he put one of them back. Of course my friend told him he could buy the one that was left and refused to comply. A fight almost ensued in one of the wealthiest areas of Ohio over a roll of toilet paper and if this kind of atmosphere persists much longer, like a few more days or God forbid weeks, a confrontation like that is going to end up in an actual killing. People have been let down by their government and they are extremely unhappy and this is the result of letting them get out of control for a seemingly good reason—to save lives. But were those lives ever really in danger? I don’t think so.

Obviously the push to get people tested is only to pad the stats and show a growth of the virus by measuring it. To keep the panic narrative going, the government needs data to justify their actions which is why the CDC keeps referring to this flatline scenario of that graph they keep showing. But to keep fuel on the fire, they need every day to have news of more of the virus spreading, so they need testing to show that to keep the panic narrative going. The conspiracy is in what these types of people believe, they are just crazy leftist groups of people who truly believe in radical advocacy behind climate change, with the same vitriol that PETA strips off their clothes to protest animal cruelty. People are very naive if they don’t see the global trend here against any capitalist effort by overdramatizing the China Virus to implement their climate change initiatives. That is certainly at the heart of Amy Acton’s decisions in Ohio where she has Mike DeWine wrapped around her finger. Her sincerity is real but her concern isn’t quite what she says it is. These people want to shut down the economy of the western nations. That is the real intent behind tricking people to stay home and not interact with each other. It has nothing to do with getting sick, protecting the elderly, for a virus that most everyone would get over on their own, its about protecting the environment by taking people off the roads, shutting down all those polluting factories, and opening up people to the idea of a universal salary where the government pays you to stay home. If you look at all that’s happened, it flows straight into the climate science activism that those types of radicals have been trying to convince us all to follow. Well, now they got a mic and a stage globally, and they have used it to preach their anti-capitalist message and we have allowed it to go on out of compassion for the elderly and not so healthy of our species.

I am prepared to fight these corrupt government types with any means possible, but in all honesty, we shouldn’t have to. I can think of a million other things to think about, I don’t need to waste my time on these extremely stupid people. But they are costing us millions of dollars that no amount of money from the government will ever make right. It doesn’t matter what they do in Europe, or Asia, America should never shut down anything for any reason. The show should always go on and it is embarrassing that our government has ordered so many things closed, where it is even affecting our sports entertainment. That is an attack on our culture and is just as detrimental as a lost life to a virus, because in a lot of ways our economy is a living thing. People should not be ready to kill each other over toilet paper, yet we are supposed to believe that staying home and not talking to other people is going to lead to a better quality of life? Get serious. I have been flooded with reports over the last several days that National Guard Humvees were staging in the parking lot of Kings Island and other locations between there and downtown Cincinnati. My response to everyone has been they don’t have enough troops to haul everyone away to the concentration camps that have been rumored for years to be the ultimate goal of the Deep State. And because of this government interference in all of our lives over NOTHING, people are terrified to consider just how deep that “Deep State” is. Its one thing to see President Trump going through Hell with it, but its quite another when you can’t find bread on the shelves and people are fighting over toilet paper. But that’s what happens when we give the big government climate types the mic and the stage, we have seen what they would do with it. They have brought the communism and socialism of China and Venezuela to the great United States and terrified everyone with a level of interruption that was science fiction only a few weeks ago.

I wouldn’t recommend taking up arms against this government just yet, but we are close when governors like Mike DeWine alter the election process to prevent us from managing our government with newly elected representatives. He didn’t have a right to do what he did and there is nothing about this China Virus to justify this action. What is troubling is that Mike DeWine’s daughter has been running for prosecutor in Greene County, and that her family had given her 400K for the race, yet she was still losing. The thinking is that she needed more time to build her case with the voters and that was one of the reasons that the election was pushed off until June 2nd, without even running any of this by the legislature. That’s likely more than a rumor, it has more than a grain of truth to it. But that people think its possible, and that they think the National Guard is ready to make a martial law move against us all says just how much trust we have in these fools. We cannot give them this much power, ever. We must load up on ammunition and buy up as many guns as possible, and we must never give them an inch on the Second Amendment because if we have learned anything with this China Virus, its that we can’t trust the government with anything. And the moment we give them the benefit of doubt we have seen what they do with it—incite a global crises that shuts down the entire economy—and for what reason—to protect the environment from all us pesky humans and our propensity to shit, eat and consume. If you peel away all the caution and concern over the lives of people getting sick from this virus that is what you will find in every one of these alarmists and we should all be ashamed of ourselves for letting them loose from the loony bins of society to ruin our lives for even a moment.

Rush Limbaugh and I: This attack on the American economy is bigger than Pearl Harbor, and Governor DeWine is playing right along

Today we received news that Governor of Ohio Mike DeWine is shutting down all restaurants and bars at 9 PM, which is just ridiculously stupid.  Obviously, the governor is showing his not so Republican roots, right now he looks just as liberal as John Kasich turned out to be and a cry baby that loves being in front of the camera too much.  This crises which I would say is mostly manufactured has fed people like DeWine, and the results are overactions like this ban on just about all social life in the State of Ohio.  I would just remind everyone, which I will get into more as the week matures and my temper calms down, this is why we have the Second Amendment.  When government gets it wrong, we must have recourse when they get power hungry and show up to our doors all in the name of safety and the “greater good.”

I often wonder if people say some of the things they do because they’ve read something I have written, and its been that way for many years. Way back when Glenn Beck was on Fox News with his 5 PM television show, I thought for sure that he was doing his daily show by reading the things I was publishing. But I’m not that conceited, rather I think the real answer is that answers present themselves to people willing to ask the question, and without speaking, people arrive at the same conclusions, or similar, because they asked the same questions and arrived at the same conclusions. Now the reader here who would like to be a pessimist will say, well why don’t I have my own radio show, or am doing this kind of thing on television. Or why isn’t he a best-selling author signing books at Barnes & Noble on Saturday afternoons? Well, the answer is that I’ve turned down a lot of media opportunities and stayed away from such offers to maintain my own independence and function from freedom. Look what Fox Business did to Trish Reagan for essentially saying the same things I have about the coronavirus. Not even Lou Dobbs was given enough rope to discuss the issue of coronavirus with the level of skepticism he normally would, because behind the news casts is a very conspiratorial corporate message. I don’t want that kind of restriction in my life. I have a lot of talents, I do what I do to make money and because of it, I don’t have to suppress this other talent of mine with the burden of making an income from it. But it stunned even me this past week that nobody but me was saying how phony this coronavirus pandemic was—except for Rush Limbaugh.

I was saying what I have been before Rush Limbaugh, but I don’t think his mind was changed from anything he read from my free blog service. I think he’s a smart guy who came to his conclusions independently, and millions of people tune into his radio show for just that very reason, to listen to his calming voice to articulate the patterns that he sees happening out there and to make sense of it. And over the years, he has done that many times on very complicated topics, and he’s been right. So have I for that matter, on topics way out from left field that a lot of people doubt when they first hear about them, but eventually, they come around. That is how this coronavirus will be remembered and I’m personally happy that Rush Limbaugh sees it too, that the virus was real sure enough, but nobody has said why we should all be so concerned about it. Many thousands of people have already recovered from it, and not many people have died, many fewer than any other common virus that people get during cold season. Nobody yet has really explained why coronavirus justified the complete shutdown of the global economy, why even the restaurants of France needed to close with movies and other entertainment forums. All anybody seems worried about is slowing down the spread and whether or not there are testing kits available to know if people are infected. But so what if people are infected. It’s not AIDs. Its not like everyone is going to die. Most people are going to recover from it shortly and get on with their lives. To date, nobody has been able to say why this virus is so “novel” from anything else, and that should concern everyone.

President Trump has tried to play things cool, I think he was where Rush and I were on this thing but with the political implications brewing, he has to find a way to turn it around on his attackers, and he has. I don’t blame him from going along with the warnings because they are literally coming from everywhere even though running around in crises mode is not a natural thing for him. Expanding his travel restrictions even to the island of Great Britain was a smart move because it attacks the true nature of the pandemic, the media coverage to drive politics, not the threat of the virus itself. Even with the American economy shut down, there is still much more GDP being produced than other places in the world and if they are going to recklessly behave in their interactions around the world, then they can be punished and sent to their rooms like everyone else. It’s the best move Trump could make, and he’s making the most out of a bad situation. But literally everyone else has surrendered to the panic including normally stable minds, like Sean Hannity. Fox News has been unwatchable all hours of the day because everyone has had to drink the corporate Kool Aid. Even Alex Jones was apocalyptic on this issue using it to sell his vitamins as if the world was coming to an end. The Drudge Report was on the same trajectory, driving panic and showing great fear of this virus for reasons that make no sense.

I guess its true that so many people are followers and are so busy in their lives that they can’t see very far over the horizon, which is why I do what I do every day. Its always very clear for me and I share that vision with people absolutely free because I want people to be happy. I don’t want a boss telling me what to think and write. Rush Limbaugh is the same kind of personality and it just so happens that he’s at a place in life where he doesn’t have any corporate pin heads worried about everything but the real problems telling him what to say and do. That has left him to literally be the only one out there saying that this overaction to the coronavirus has much more to it than what anybody is admitting to. People will get this virus; they’ll build up an immunity to it and get over it quickly. That will happen without any government in the world doing a thing about it. But this panic fanned on by virtually everyone has more to it than just concern over death. Its an attack on our economy that I think is more bold and audacious than the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. I certainly raised an eyebrow when at 3 PM Friday during Trump’s address to the nation, which sent the stock market way up word by word that Bill Gates stepped away from the board of Microsoft. Many people don’t know it but much of what is happening was a warning from Bill Gates himself a few years ago when he was trying to convince a lot of people that the next great challenge for the human race was a viral attack. As I have been saying, I think fellow billionaires trying to get control of the human population for all their own reasons, whether it is to address global warming, or in the case of Soros and his friends, to preserve socialism around the world by putting people’s minds back onto a centralized government that they can control with donations, it was obvious that the world was turning the corner and Gates literally stepped away during Trump’s speech. (Little things like that matter, and people should take notice.) Add up thousands of those things that happen every day and you’ll get your story of the truth.

Hmmmm………………..do you see the smoke dear reader.

I stand by my contention that the coronavirus is an attack on not just America, but the world and it was meant to put Trump on his heels and give other people a chance to win the coming election. And Rush Limbaugh sees it too. The level of corporate advancement of the panic has been very concerning, but its good to see who we can trust and who we can’t in these kinds of things, so lots of valuable information has been revealed. Yet still, the panic is falling away because people are now recovering and people can see for themselves that this virus is nowhere near as dangerous as the media has been telling us and its good to see that there are free people still out there who can also see the obvious. And thank goodness there is.  Mike DeWine is not one of them.

Why EdChoice is so Beneficial: Removing Parkinson’s Law from the public education debate in Ohio

I’ve been watching and listening to the whole debate about EdChoice in Ohio with great interest. Of course, the Ohio Senate had to vote to delay the implementation of Ed Choice which was scheduled to take effect the day of this writing, until April 1st 2020. The public schools in particular have responded terribly to it, including the school in my own district which I’ve written a lot about, Lakota. It has been nothing short of embarrassing to listen to Lakota’s superintendent complain about the funding model that is coming whether they like it or not and move the entire district into a victimized status so quickly on the issue. The report back from some financial news from Lakota has not been good and they are floating the idea for another levy which would be a terrible, anti-growth tax increase just to supplement their mismanaged spending habits, so the news was bad enough. This EdChoice debate has only made things worse. Dealing with professional educators to me is the worst experience that there is in professional politics because they are so entitled and unrealistic about what they think their financial requirements should be, so we’ll deal with some of that here, and in the coming months. Listening to politicians attempt to put their minds around what to do about EdChoice, which is simply a grading system that inspires the financial contributions of the state to follow the student of that failing school to the school of their choice. This of course leaves variability in public school budgets for money they have been used to getting now going to an unpredictable number of students who may decide to go somewhere else with that precious state money.

I listened to Bill Cunningham and Representative Bill Seitz talk about this EdChoice problem on WLW and every word made me cringe. Here were two people who call themselves rock ribbed Republicans missing the whole point of the public education debate. Now, my history with these two is that they are on the wrong side of many issues. They mean well like a lot of people do, but their perspective has been tainted by years of acceptance of a system initiated by people like John Dewey during an experimentation of many things during the progressive era at the turn of the last century and like many have accepted that that’s just the way things are and the way they will always be. Money goes to the school from the state to teach children living in that district not just skills for a future job, but to turn them into democratic citizens with an emphasis on social change. In hindsight this has been a complete disaster, look at the products of the schools, which many of us are. People aren’t very smart, and they don’t set their sights very high in life. Dewey’s mistake was in attempting to steer society away from republic representation and more toward democratic majority rule, which we all know now is a disaster at the epistemological level.

For the two Bills talking on WLW about EdChoice, they are both people in their 60s and 70s now, to them public school is about sports programs, learning to follow orders so that kids learn to live in a civil society, and in establishing much needed social connections with peers. Way back, many decades ago when my wife and I pulled our kids out of public schools for a year to teach them at home because the results were just so disappointing we had family members literally melt under the news because they were afraid my kids would turn into complete social outcasts, because they believed after so many years of this Dewey philosophy that the goal of public schools was to establish these mental applications. Of course, those sentiments were completely fear based, just as about everything in public education is. We have learned to just accept the failure that is evident because that’s always the way we have done things. People like the “Bills” on WLW enjoy the idea that their public school is the holder of real-estate value, and that Friday Night Lights football in the fall months of every year make for great conversation. But it was flawed from the beginning and never was poised to do what Dewey wanted because his fundamental problem was in thinking that the state as a central authority should be in charge. It was a progressive experiment, but not a very “Republican” thing to do.

Schools like Lakota and many others who are complaining about the insecurity in their funding model should be looking at the situation like any business would instead of some free-loader sitting in a bird nest of a rich district and opening their mouths for tax money to flow in. They should be working to be the best school with the best options in a free market society. No matter what the report card states in giving families the choice of a school they’d like to go to, Lakota should feel confident that kids would want to go to their school for all the reasons that anybody would, to get a good education, be near a good sports program, or just to be around other students who aren’t problems coming from broken families. Students should have a choice and if Lakota wants those students, they should have to work to attract them.

The most tragic thing I have noticed, looking at the situation professionally, is that all public schools have become addicted to the natural state of Parkinson’s Law that has contaminated their budgeting structures. Everyone who has been involved professionally in process improvements understands that Parkinson’s Law is an adage that states “work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion,” meaning that a work schedule blankly stated will allow a worker to fill that time allotment from beginning to end by the nature of human interaction. If you give someone an hour to do a 5-minute job, they’ll take the whole hour. Process improvement demands to understand how long it actually takes to do a job, and to work out the tendencies of Parkinson’s Law to misstate labor needs. Well, that same tendency is at the center of the public education debate all across the country, and is why the EdChoice trend is so badly needed. Budgets have been filled to their maximum to accommodate whatever the state provides and to what extent local school district tax payers will put up with in increased levies driven by labor unions looking to use Parkinson’s Law to attach need to student performance by using the chaos of money going to the schools, not the student, to keep the process centrally controlled and with a false understanding of what education per student should cost, leaving the real state funding model perpetually broken, which is just how the labor unions and lazy superintendents like it.

Clearly what we have had hasn’t worked. Education needs reformed and the centralized aspects of it need to be removed. Free market solutions are the only way to improve schools and the students that come from them. People should have the option to vote with their feet putting schools into the same competitive situation that every restaurant, shopping complex and entertainment destination must do, compete for the dollars available. Education is not so sacred to not be attached to competitive market conditions, end of story. A quick look at our students declares that trying something new wouldn’t hurt, because we couldn’t do worse. And ultimately that is the direction of education anyway, just as the trends of the world are declaring. People want more choices in life, not less, and it’s a matter of time anyway where money for education shouldn’t even come from the state. But while it does, it should go to the students so they can vote with their feet. Not to hold them to a school that doesn’t feel it has to earn their business. If Lakota is such a great school, or any government school for that matter, don’t tell us how good you are. Make yourself one of those schools that people want to go to. Make it so that you are so crowded that you must turn people away, which only increases the value of the product. Sure, it makes the current way that schools do business chaotic, it forces them to understand how much Parkinson’s Law is in their processes. It forces the teacher unions to think differently for sure. But that is their problem, not ours. And the state will never know how much it should spend on students so long as Parkinson’s Law is contaminating their assumptions. That is the key to this whole discussion and we’re going to have it now or in a few years, but the way things have been are not the way things are going to be. The old Dewey model was poised from the outset to fail. But these days, life happens too fast and there is just too much to learn to attempt to squeeze everything into the traditional classroom setting that we have been attempting to do. The times and this new economy are forcing us to change, so let’s get at it and solve this problem once and for all by looking at the entire concept differently.
