How Republicans Should Address Health Care: Dealing with the future to have a real plan

Warning, this may be the most important thing you read and see in your life, proceed with that understanding:

Now that the election is over its time for Republicans to announce to the world what their health care plan is, which of course in the short-term will have to be a more competitive free market option. But everyone knows that the old days of drug induced medicine are over, just as stage coaches were replaced by automobiles. We are at a point where the medical industry is under a complete overhaul, as provided in the example in the video below by the Japanese proposal of using AI to produce new healthy cells to replace damaged or diseased tissue within a body. The solution to all medical problems is in cell repairs, not surgeries or chemical medicines. So, any health care plan must look at where human civilization is headed, not where it’s been before anything can be seriously considered, so the Republican plan needs to incorporate that reality. If you want to make the heads of Democrats explode, tell them that you want to solve health care as a detrimental condition instead of just throwing drugs at people. Tell people who you can actually fix them instead of just numbing their pain and the leverage of the whole health care issue changes.

The trouble with regenerative medicine is purely in human psychology and this is why politicians have not yet touched the issue, but they ultimately will have to. President Trump is just the kind of president who could do it, but what must be overcome by the public is the desire of approximately 85%, maybe more, of the population to believe in the cycle of life and death which has been with us since the beginning of all recorded history. I would argue that like the Vico cycle, the themes of life and death were always meant for human minds to solve which is why specifically it is our species with their vast imaginations that have been born and have evolved to solve these types of complicated problems. Death and disease are literally solvable problems and they are at our doorstep in this current time to carry mankind well into the future. Yet because most people don’t know any better, they are resistant to change. Like most dysfunctional sentiments, they would rather die than change their minds about things, because they have literally been programmed from their birth to always look for an end to it all at some point.

I would not call myself a transhumanist, but as people who know me understand, the name of this site is “Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom.” There has never been a part in my life where just being human was acceptable. Even in my earliest memories I have always wanted to be superhuman. I never have said, I am too tired to work, too tired to think, care for my family or anything. I often stay up all night working and reading and all day working without any sleep at all and I love every day of my life. If I lived for the next ten thousand years, I can say that I would never be bored for one minute of that entire time and I would be very happy to do and learn and live for even longer than that. If the Vico cycle politically states that humans have always went through various cycles of theocracy, aristocracy, democracy then anarchy, all elements that we see today around the world at various stages always in combat with each other, then all our lives and the religions we have invented to deal with the problems of life and death are essentially the same. There isn’t any mythology or philosophy that properly deals with the possibility of a life stimulated by regenerative medicine. Humans just didn’t see the possibilities of regenerative medicine coming and the artists and philosophers that still construct our social context are still rooted in ancient ways of viewing death.

I was reminded of my twenties lately while watching an episode of Josh Gates’ Expedition Unknown where he took a vision quest with some shaman in Peru using ayahuasca to induce the hallucinogenic journey of what they call the journey of life and death. I was very hungry to learn more about these shaman trips while I was reading Primitive Mythology by Joseph Campbell in Waffle Houses at 4 am in the morning when I was around 23 years old. I was always impressed with how shaman were able to step into the mind of the sick and help them recover from whatever it was that had a grip on their souls, so I think there is some merit to these techniques. But what Josh Gates went through is a supercharge on his brain and all the experiences and thoughts he had experienced over his lifetime. The shaman were able to journey with him on a kind of quantum realm that they had learned to tap in to. But the nature of a soul and life itself does not need to be defined by life and death, only by existence and the amount of contribution that it makes to higher dimensional realities, whether on the very small-scale such as those that shaman likely tap into by using the artificial stimulant ayahuasca or on the scale of the huge, where entire universes are as common as cells in our body, and the one we live in is just one. All those realities intersect with each other in ways we still don’t understand and I think the key to grasping them is that humans need to step away from the cycle of life and death to help in some way the reasons for our birth. Obviously there is a reason for intelligent life, for beings like us who can think and conceptualize and to solve the riddles of the universe and all the quantum realms that connect it we must step away from the cycle of life and death that requires each generation to learn just a little from the previous one, but only gives professional observers about 50 years to crack a code, which isn’t enough time.

What is coming out of Japan and the Mayo Clinic in America are options for a completely new way of living and understanding our role in the universe. While ayahuasca may stimulate a brain in hyper charged ways typical shaman and other religious leaders view the results in the context of their religions which are formed around observations of birth and death. While the observations are interesting, the context is the variable, and that is essentially the case behind the health care debate. If we are talking about keeping a system in place that supports pharmaceutical companies and the economy they have built on delaying death as long as possible that’s one thing and is at the heart of the Democrat desire for a single payer socialist system. As we know from history, politicians whether they be church leaders or village shaman use their connection to the afterlife to control populations. And Democrats are attempting to control people’s fear of death and the pain that leads to it as a way to control their voter base. And like most people, many people are willing to die if at some point in their life they can hold great power over others. That is why health care is the number one election issue. But think of what Republicans could do in the future if they could change the view of healthcare without the conservative base getting too freaked out about it? It’s only a matter of time before politics, art and science catch up to the ambitions of the imaginations of the human race. The question is, who will do it, and what benefits will come their way as they redefine the entire game? If anyone can do it, Trump can and these new Republicans coming together under his leadership. Truly, the future is what we make it and that reality is happening much sooner than most people realize.

If these concepts are new to you, feel free to watch all the videos contained here in their entirety.  This is the future, we might as well align ourselves with it now rather than later.

The Great Middletown Mound: A proper excavation is needed to discover the giant humans inside

IMG_4365Before there was ever an Indian Jones movie my teachers were telling me through those scholastic aptitude tests you take in elementary school that my three most likely occupations that I was most suited for were as an archaeologist, a test pilot, and a daredevil.  Of course those last two they didn’t take very seriously, but the first came after watching me with the other kids at COSI in Columbus where I often went off by myself to study things that interested me and I asked questions from the workers that were unexpected.  Over the years my wife talked me away from being a professional daredevil which has cheapened the cost of owning a car—so that’s a good thing.  Being a test pilot required training in the military and that is way too conformist for me.  On the skill side, it would be no problem, but on the taking orders side—forget it.  And archaeology didn’t pay enough.  I wanted a family and I like to spend time with them, so running all over the world getting dirty all the time for very little money wasn’t appealing as a career.  But I do enjoy it as a hobby and have never really put it away.  As a kid I grew up in Liberty Township and watched many neighborhoods develop over top of Indian burial mounds which didn’t bother me much because I like seeing new things come from the human race.  But the land that I grew up on always seemed to me to be holding some key to civilization that needed to be unlocked, so when opportunities came for me to live in different places around the world like New Zealand, New York, Los Angeles and Florida came up—I passed because I honestly feel like I live in one of the best places in the world—and I’ve traveled plenty to know the difference.

But it was only after reading Fritz Zimmerman’s very good book, The Nephilim Chronicles: A Travel Guide to the Ancient Ruins in the Ohio Valley that I noticed that the so-called Middletown Mound that I’ve read about before was actually across the river from my house quietly hiding in plain sight.  It was only then that I realized that the mound was actually about the same size as the Miamisburg Mound which I just revealed to everyone who reads here–contained the skeleton of a species of ancient giant.  That skeleton measured in length to around 9’ tall.  After that discovery the excavators packed up and never returned—which to me is an enormous mystery.  It is my challenge to the scientific community to return to that site and conduct a proper modern excavation and learn all they can about the culture that built the thing and discover where they came from—because likely the roots go way back to the British Isles and even further to the times of the Sumerian—pre deluge times if you believe in that kind of thing.IMG_4370

Thankfully, because of Indian Jones movies archaeology has seen a tremendous uptick in interest for the last three decades and a lot of very good discoveries have been made around the world and things are starting to become quite clear.  Of course the stubborn old academics are grudgingly holding onto their old theories about things, and modern politics has built a tremendous industry around the victimization of Indian tribes using those beaten people as a platform to win elections—but we are discovering that ancient giants lived in North America well before Columbus ever sailed the ocean blue to “discover” the New World.  It was new to Europe, but the rest of the world including the Chinese were already there and thriving.  And the evidence is in these mound building cultures which has been acquired by many inspired professional and amateur archaeologists that have set the stage for new conclusions about old things and their origins.

So as I was reading through Fritz’s travel guide I noticed that the Middletown Mound wasn’t just some little thing like the ones that many Liberty Township neighborhoods were built over—it was 88’ tall originally which made it as large as the Miamisburg Mound and nearly as tall as the Silbury Hill at Avebury in England.  And the thing was literally sitting right within my site—but nobody knew about it.  Even the people living near it would just point at it and say—“yeah, that’s where them there Indians have some ‘ingines’ buried.”  In reality, and its hiiiigglly likely, there are 8’ to 9’ people buried within the Middletown Mound given what we know about the one in Miamisburg and the surrounding gravel quarries along the Great Miami River.

Of course I went down to see it and you can see the results from the pictures shown here, it’s a location protected as an archaeological site of Historic Places beginning in 1971.  So thankfully, nobody can build on it, but otherwise it’s just sitting there waiting for us to discover and give it some attention—which it clearly deserves.  It is clear that archaeologists had dug an exploratory trench through the middle of it and that the top had been pulled away, but the incomplete nature of it is incomprehensible to me.  How could anybody call themselves an institute of science and leave something this significant sitting in such a dilapidated state?  It is beyond me that politics and religion would be allowed to hinder us from proper scientific discovery of facts sitting right in front of us.

If this Middletown Mound site were in England the English Heritage people would have built a theme park out of the mound and used the money to fund their excavations and trickle their excess funds into museums like the Museum Center in Cincinnati.  Looking at the site there is enough to work with to conduct a significant dig while hosting it to the public for families to visit and get to know better.  And if giants are found in the mound—they need to be properly woven into our historical record.  If not, we still need to know more about the people who built it and not just rely on some raw assumptions that it served as a high point for communication upstream.

And honestly, this is why I have never left Liberty Township.  I think this area, and in general Ohio, hold a key to life on planet earth that is still preserved from wars which have destroyed the Middle East—where I think these mound builders originated.  Fritz Zimmerman’s books confirm much of what I’ve suspected with hard evidence of rather intricate ancient ruins and the Middletown Mound is more than just a high spot built by an extinct people.  It’s an ancient ruin likely dating back to before Christ and it needs to be understood clearly—not half cocked with speculation by underfunded grave robbers.  After visiting the site of the Middletown Mound I think there is at least 80% potential that what could be discovered inside would change the very nature of archaeology forever—and drive infinite amounts of money in new funding toward the science.  And we’d be crazy not to do something about it—which is why I’m writing this.  The people who read here know who I’m talking to.  Let’s get our thoughts together and do something about it.  Such an important archaeological contributor is in Butler County, Ohio and we should do it justice for the benefit of everyone.  I saw what they did at Stonehenge recently, which was very impressive.  Some might say that this kind of thing isn’t as cool as Stonehenge, but let me say this—I just came from that mysterious place, and the Middletown Mound holds its place in the category of mystery that is equitable.  We should be doing more with it than just letting trees grow on top of something so potentially significant.  But forget about the whole argument about the site being a “Native American Graves” site, because as I’ve stated, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), Pub. L. 101-601, 25 U.S.C. 3001 et seq., 104 Stat. 3048, the United States federal law enacted on 16 November 1990 needs to be repealed so that proper discovery can take place of such sites—because “Native American” is not a proper term for the people who lived in North America unless you count the Giants of Ohio who lived here well before Europeans arrived after Columbus.

And we can’t properly do that work if we are always apologizing for the sorrows of westward expansion.  That is mostly why that great Middletown Mound is sitting there in limbo—and we are compelled to change that status.  The lineal descendants of the relics found in the Middletown Mound won’t be the Shawnee, Adena, or the Hopewell Indians, likely they will be the members of the current Middle East who have a heritage with Sumer. So don’t worry about tracking down whatever Indian tribe might own the relics found in the Middletown Mound to Oklahoma or South Dakota, or wherever.  The lineal descendants who have proper heritage possession of the mound’s contents are those of us still alive in the United States to tell this global story for the benefit of all mankind.

Defending the Cincinnati Zoo: Raw footage of the gorilla attack and the reason it had to be killed

I wasn’t going to say anything about this because I love the Cincinnati Zoo and it was really difficult for them to have to shoot one of their prime gorillas when a four-year old boy fell down into their very nice exhibit over Memorial Day weekend.  Unfortunately most of the news outlets did not show how violent the gorilla had been to the little boy cutting out the harshest moments.  At times the gorilla looked to be protective of the child, and he likely was.  But, things can turn nasty in a moment and anybody who knows anything about animals like these types of gorillas understands that once a human being is in a closed exhibit with a much stronger creature that trouble is highly probable.  So here is the original footage to add context to the situation.

The Cincinnati Zoo is one of the best in the world and I commend the team on staff who had to make an incredibly difficult decision that will cost them greatly.  I don’t blame the mother, I don’t blame the kid, and I certainly don’t blame the zoo.  It was just something that happens and the value of such zoo exhibits are worth the danger.  It is really our responsibility as a human species to respect the dangerous tendency of all animals and not to provoke them.  Below is another example of an aggressive gorilla at another exhibit which might better explain why the Cincinnati Zoo felt they needed to act so quickly.  Notice that when the child beats on its chest in the reflection on the window glass, the gorilla took that as a challenge and attacked the glass—cracking it.

Here is the same exhibit where the same two gorillas got into a sudden fight in front of the spectators.  Listen to the stupid comments of the visitors.  The best thing a zoo can do is protect everyone the best they can and use the profit generated to help save more animals around the world.  For the best experience, zoos try very hard to put visitors as close to the natural habitat of the animals.   But danger is inherit, and that slight threat should always be present in the back of our minds while visiting.   Sometimes in Sea World when dealing with killer whales, people get killed.  And sometimes when dealing with dangerous gorillas bad things happen.

However, it’s important to have these exhibits for both the animals and the humans who visit so that our species can learn something from them.  They need our protection and we need to understand their nature.  When bad things happen, we all need to shrug it off and get to the next day.  The best thing you could do dear reader is to support your local zoo for the service they provide.  And if you live in Cincinnati like I do, make sure to throw a little money in their direction every now and then.  They are some of the best in the business and losing a gorilla is a great loss to them—and they need your support, not your criticism.  Zoos aren’t day cares.  They need to be respected as well as enjoyed.  So treat them that way and visit the Cincinnati Zoo as often as you can.

How to Save the American Economy: John Galt and Thorium Reactors

Two things I noticed immediately from the film critics of Dark Knight Rises, and now of the upcoming Atlas Shrugged Part II, is that the media in general is belittling the kind of super energy power supply that is featured in those films. CLICK HERE FOR AN EXAMPLE. In Dark Knight Rises Bruce Wayne has funded essentially a thorium reactor that will power Gotham City with the cleanest and most powerful energy yet devised on earth. In Atlas Shrugged Part II John Galt has built a special engine that is capable of running off static electricity, literally pulling electrons out of the air much the way lightning forms in nature. Both technologies are based on scientific fact yet are presented in superhero films as a solution to the world’s energy, financial, and environmental impact issues surrounding sustainable power. There is a good reason for that belittlement–because anything that is not coal, solar, wind, oil, or any other established technology, is a threat to the financial roots those technologies have established in human culture.

Even the liberal press who leans in the direction of environmental concerns find the kind of energy supply shown in Dark Knight Rises and Atlas Shrugged as science fiction regulated to childhood fantasies. What they fail to disclose is that their opinions are formulated around the millions of dollars traditional power supply companies have spent on congressman, senators and lawyers through lobbyists to protect their monopolies. The media are victims of a protection racket propelled by the political establishment to cover for the money that lobbyists spent on legislators to shape public opinion. All the parties involved in the racket are committed to their own doomed futures with a foolish pursuit of the kind of power that is produced by traditional sources in order to protect the jobs, the flow of money, and the long-term contracts that have been set up by the emergence of electricity.

But, the concepts shown in Dark Knight Rises and Atlas Shrugged are not science fiction, but rather are science fact. Thorium in fact is a source of nuclear power that was developed as far back as the middle of the Twentieth Century and President Nixon was firmly committed to developing it as a way to inject a lot of life into the American economy. But politics got in the way and threw roadblocks up at every attempt. When Three Mile Island happened in America, and most recently Fukushima in Japan the media and political scallywags seized upon those tragedies to frighten a timid public away from nuclear energy—so to preserve the public need of dirty energy by which many millions of current jobs rely. No politician in their right mind would dare act against the job losses and union jobs of those working in the energy sectors of the American economy which would be threatened by the kind of change thorium reactors would bring to the energy industry. It would be equivalent to introducing email to the United States Post Office service. The result to traditional mail is that it’s going bankrupt because it simply can’t compete with email. Thus the same would be said of thorium reactors compared to coal-burning power plants or solar energy.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor technology is truly a revolution in clean energy production. Thorium is such a dense energy supply that a lifetime of energy use can be held in the palm of a hand. LFTR reactors are small and can consume nearly 100% of its fuel while current reactors only consume about 2% before the fuel becomes waste. LFTR’s process heat can turn coal and natural gas to methanol, and can be used to harvest shale oil. It can turn trash into synthetic gasoline and diesel fuel. LFTR’s can help cure cancer, provide true national energy independence, desalinate salt water and create countless jobs and national prosperity. The only thing that is preventing LFTR energy in America is over regulation of the nuclear industry created by the government in response to a panic addicted media all in the preservation of existing power sources protected by lobbyists.

Imagine being able to build a LFTR power plant in North Africa along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Not only could it produce enough power to take care of most of the northern countries, it could also turn sea water into drinkable service bringing irrigation canals to draught infested regions saving millions of lives and improving the lives of millions more. Because of LFTR technology no place on earth would have to go without water and no human being would have to die of thirst. It would enrich the lives of every human being on the planet.

There are many people in politics who do not wish to see American dependence on foreign oil go away, because they profit a great deal from that arrangement. They also do not wish to turn deserts green and feed the world, because then there would be no altruism from which they could act as middlemen of kindness. They do not wish to eliminate nuclear waste as LFTR does because then opposition to nuclear power by the public would be removed. They do not wish to turn trash into fuel, because then there would be no environmental danger to protest against, giving their fruitless lives less meaning. These types of people do not wish the world to be truly better. They wish to keep energy dependence alive and well because a dependent population tends to look toward a leader, and they fantasies to provide that leadership, even at the expense of other people’s freedom.

If America could rid itself of its fearful lobbyists and the politicians that eat from their hands stepping forward and embracing LFTR technology, the entire economy of The United States would change for the better. Such a decision would affect each and every citizen of America with new energy that is found in North America in great abundance that is clean, powerful, and clearly the next step for the human race. What is holding back our society from the millions of new jobs LFTR would create is a corrupt political system and a toothless media more committed to progressive politics than the kind of future LFTR could bring not just to America, but the world.

The misery of a failed economy, of world hunger, of people dying of cancer, of dirty energy and environmental hazards are self-inflicted because the potential of LFTR technology is available right now and has been for a number of years. But it has been concealed in order to protect the old way of doing business from the new way. What has happened is equivalent to the car companies at the turn of the century being prevented from emerging as a business because the makers of horse carriages lobbied congress to create laws to prevent the car companies from buying tires. The power of the energy lobby has been to protect how money was made yesterday, not in developing how it will be made tomorrow.
When film critics attempt to belittle an emerging technology it is not because they find it offensive, or silly. It is because it threatens the system they serve as a member of the accepted collective. They are acting as agents of attack against any threat to their primitive knowledge, because they wish to preserve the static intellectualism that they have built their lives around. When critics come out against the new Atlas Shrugged film it is not that the movie is bad, or the film narrative is poor. It is because they represent in real life what the fictional character of John Galt is attempting to warn the world about.

In the book Atlas Shrugged John Galt creates a society for those brave enough, and smart enough to comprehend it deep in the mountains of Colorado. He calls it Galt’s Gulch—otherwise known as Atlantis. It is a paradise on earth where he his friends flee the parasites of The United States resisting the inventions of the truly brilliant and creative. That society is made possible by John Galt’s miracle power generator, very similar to the LFTR technology discussed in this article. I have reported here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom many technological achievements that are being held up by an overly regulated nation such as cures for cancer, flying cars, and extraordinary botanical growth methods which point to a world of tomorrow what we could have today if not for the degrees of collectivism invented by Karl Marx which is behind almost every modern political action. It is because of Marxist subscription to social collectivism that wonderful technologies like Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor’s have been placed on the shelf to protect the infrastructure of yesterday and the jobs created by that faded dream. The pain and suffering our society is anguishing through now, the mindless war for absolutely no reason but to keep politicians in power and crony capitalism thriving through lobbyists is completely avoidable and senseless. It’s a self-imposed pain created by the masochists in love with Marxism—with huge government bureaucracy, and a political class drunk on tax payer funded power.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor technology is not being discussed in the mainstream news because it threatens the monopolies of the past. Even though every politician wishes to get elected on promises they make to fix the problems of our day, deep in their hearts they never want the problems to actually be solved. They crave environmental issues, unstable conditions in the Middle East, nuclear melt downs with radiation that kills thousands because it leaves society scrambling for a leader to save the day, which never comes. So long as there are problems in the world, the politician has a job to do, and Washington—along with every parasite who lives off the money flowing down K-Street strives to keep that system intact. LFTR technology actually solves many modern problems, and that is why it is being shoved under the carpet, and kept from the public’s eyes.

So when the movie Atlas Shrugged Part II comes out understand that the plot of some brilliant man who invents a new form of energy which could save the world and give rise to a new day for the human race, but instead retreats to the mountains of Colorado to selfishly keep it for a small group of capitalists, that it’s more science fact than science fiction. Technology like what John Galt fictionally invented in Atlas Shrugged is actually quite real, and the methods which prevent that technology from benefiting mankind is just as real as the fictional tale claims. The critics who will pan the movie as ludicrous and immature—even selfish are the thieves who are keeping the world prisoner to their Marxist philosophy of collectivism in service to the political elite at the expense of innovation and human prosperity. The by-product of this philosophy is misery by the truck loads and mountains of broken dreams stamping out forever the light behind the eyes of every child with the courage to question their surroundings and crush the spirit of all the children who didn’t leaving an adult population of mindless drones and school levy supporters.

Rich Hoffman Supported Herman Cain: So why did ‘Yahoo News’ call him a racist?

I enjoyed greatly the accusations from The Atlantic Wire featured on Yahoo News recently that declared I, along with Rush Limbaugh, Charles Krauthammer and writers at The Free Republic were racists because we did not support the President of the United States due to the color of his skin, and that our dislike over federal welfare programs were racially motivated instead of performance oriented. Read the article for yourself at the following link:

http://news.yahoo.com/people-hear-mitt-romney-talks-welfare-222622356.html?_esi=1

(Check out this wonderful video on racism by Bill Whittle)

It is always interesting when the other side, particularly progressive oriented people, use name calling when they can’t debate an idea. In this case President Obama has been an absolute embarrassment in his role as President, and I am personally ashamed of the guy. For many years in the future there will always be a footnote over The Obama Presidency where America tried the closest member of Communist Party U.S.A to ever get into The White House—we had to try—the hippies needed to have a chance to show how terribly they could screw up the world, and Obama is the candidate of the messed up, drug induced flower children of the 1960’s. But my dislike of Obama has nothing to do with the color of his skin, as Yahoo News led thousands of readers to believe. Anyone who knows anything about me knows that out of all the Republican candidates running for President in 2012, it was Herman Cain that I most supported, and still adore.

Contrary to what progressive Democrats who eat out of the hand of Emperor Obama think, Herman Cain is a black man—and he’s a rich black man. If Herman Cain were running for president right now, I’d vote for him in much the same way that I would have voted for Alan Keys in the 90’s against Bill Clinton. Proof of my admiration for Herman Cain goes all the way back to over a year ago when the presidential race for the Republicans was just beginning to heat up. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW, so sorry Yahoo News and The Atlantic Wire, my comments about Obama being a welfare panderer and behind the door communist have nothing to do with the color of his skin. It has everything to do with his world view, and political philosophy which I find reprehensible.

In fact when I said that Obama thought he was speaking to an audience of welfare recipients I never even thought of black citizens as there are over 110,000 million Americans on welfare. There are whites on welfare as well as blacks. If there is any racism going on it comes from people who only look at situations that involve blacks and single them out for exclusivity and political advantage. But the accusations from the political left in this case is to make any discussions of welfare reform or Barack Obama’s handling of the economy an issue of race because nobody can actually defend the terrible job performance of the mob elected president. Many in the democratic mob of America were seduced into supporting him because of his “hope and change” message. The truth behind “hope and change” as well as the current campaign of “Forward” is tag lines for subtle communism—and yes, that’s what it is.

When organized groups proclaim “workers of the world unite,” and the “rich need to pay their fair share” those terms come from Karl Marx—the inventor of communism. Marx is the treasured author in the Obama White House which is beyond refute. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MARX AND WHY THE PRESIDENT AND HIS WHITE HOUSE ARE PUSHING COMMUNISM. When advocates for the President suggest that people like me are racist because I don’t blindly support a seriously flawed President who happens to be black, they also ignore other presidential candidates who are black because they are not down and out poor. The progressive political machine desires very much to always keep the race card handy so they don’t have to answer any tough questions. They make sure the black voting demographic stays in a state of economic need so that progressives can always exploit them in a whim.

When Herman Cain was running for president it terrified progressives because if a “rich” black man were seen by the black population across America, it might break up the bloc voting demographic Obama has over the black population. So they found a way to get rid of Cain, using the press to exploit some of Cain’s loose relationships with women, which certainly isn’t new in The White House. Bill Clinton let a woman his daughter’s age give him a blow job in The Oval Office and nobody cared, because Clinton was a progressive and part of that whole Shadow Party progressive machine. Cain only had rumors of girl friends and he was embarrassed and lambasted daily until he left the presidential race to protect the continued harassment of his family. Wasn’t it racism to protect the white president in Clinton who groped and fondled many women while President, yet to attack a presidential candidate who was black because he was a Republican that was wealthy and didn’t fit the desired profile? Where was Yahoo News on that story?

No, it’s not people like me who are the racists, it’s the people who make race the issue because they have no answers for the behavior of their President—their leader. The people who do such things are despicable, because they are openly exploiting citizens of a particular race just to maintain a voting demographic stronghold. In their view when welfare is criticized it’s because of race, since they can offer no solutions as to why progressives started giving out other people’s money in the first place to redistribute wealth when in fact there are many whites who are just as addicted to free government money as blacks or any other voting group. Bringing up the name calling racial allegation is an old Saul Alinsky trick that reached its fever pitch in the 1990’s and directly led to electing Barack Obama in the first place–to prove that America was not a racist country. The race baiting is a one trick pony and we’ve already seen it. It doesn’t work anymore because people have been scammed badly by it.

But thanks Yahoo News for the national attention. A lot of people scanned over my articles and realized that The Atlantic Wire edited carefully my comments to appear as racially motivated as possible, but even then such a connection was not made by readers. Out of thousands of hits on that particular article, I received not a single derogatory comment once they read the article I actually wrote in the context for which I presented it. Further, all anyone has to do with me is compare how many times I openly supported Herman Cain to know that I could care less if the President of The United States is a black man, a white man, or a yellow man. I just want the President to be a smart man who is a free market guy. When I send my hard earned money to the federal government and see that they give it away like candy it makes me very angry. So I have a right to be angry at Obama for putting my nation 16 trillion dollars into debt on his reckless communist ideology. I’m not angry at Obama for being black. I’m angry at him for all the damage he’s done as president and the division he has exemplified in my country using trivial nonsense like “race” to hide the crimes of a fool.

A Criminal, a Liar, a Communist, and a Terrorist: Barack Obama Insults America

When President Obama stated on July 13th 2012 in his now infamous “you didn’t build that” speech, I was so infuriated that I couldn’t even write about it. I couldn’t wrap my mind around the audacity of his socialist utterances. Like many, I believe that Obama is an open communist behind closed doors, but the evidence was never so obvious as it was on that day. Obama declared to all of America that he was equal to the type of communism that America fought during the entire Cold War and was no less of a communist than Fidel Castro of the 1980s. I was so furious at the obviousness of Obama’s communism that I had to take a chill pill for a few weeks just to calm down. And I wasn’t the only one. Bill Whittle of PJ TV had similar thoughts as I did and as usual conveyed well his frustration and anger at this severally deranged American President in Barack Obama. Be sure to watch this video clip completely and pass it around.

As if the comments alone weren’t bad enough, Obama realizing that he wasn’t speaking to a crowd of welfare recipients, union workers, and general social miscreants, attempted to lie about what he was recorded saying to millions of people. It was obvious that Obama had gotten caught up in the moment when he was speaking to a crowd of blind supporters and didn’t think or care what the rest of America would think of his real, unfettered opinions. Being caught right out in the open, Obama attempted to do what he has done with virtually every issue in his 4 year presidency, he tried to blame someone else for twisting his words around on him which is really quite amazing.

Obama attempted to erase from the mind of America words that were openly broadcast to millions of people and replace them with a different idea. The audacity of his attempt says a lot about his level of integrity and definition of honesty. I can only imagine what Obama would attempt to twist out of the truth on issues that were well concealed from public view. Obama is clearly using the Saul Alinsky methods of manipulation to conceal his real intentions. These same methods are used by public education and other unionized organizations to manipulate the masses off the key topics of villainy which they openly commit.

In essence Obama and his attack dog Eric Holder of the DOJ have utilized the exact same methods of concealment to hide their involvement in ‘Fast and Furious’ which caused the murder of over 300 innocent human beings all in a quest to push more gun legislation. The timeline again is shown well by Bill Whittle at PJ TV and it cannot be ignored. These are criminals and they hide their crimes behind the polite benefit of doubt given by the American people.

The argument in the video is right. The crimes just over ‘Fast and Furious’ are every bit as dangerous and corrupt as Watergate, but they are concealed behind a veil of politeness, and orthodox politics created by extreme activists under the devious methods devised by Saul Alinsky. Obama is so certain of the effectiveness of his manipulation methods that he will lie about a situation even when millions of people heard exactly what he said and there is tape to review it again.

The followers of Saul Alinsky and all the other insurrection artists of the 20th century know that because of the expansion of government which umbrellas so many Americans, that they are conquering an already defeated people. When Obama stands in front of his fans who support him because they hope the president is going to give them some of his Obama money, he knows that the audience who was cheering him on did not have the wits about them to probe into the merit of his declarations, and he doesn’t care, because the goal of government expansion is to make the citizens fat, dumb, and happy. Obama and his gang of thugs that have come before him see the complacency that the population in general displays. It is not the more intelligent members of American society that is the lazy and politically uninterested. It’s the people who do not read the news but simply watch TV and play video games. It’s the type of people who do not read books, but will browse through a magazine to see what celebrities are sleeping with whom. In other words, they are not very sophisticated, and are therefore defenseless to see a lie when they hear it if the person presenting the information is smiling and wearing a suit representing authority. Their minds are simply too lazy to ask an inconvenient question, “is my president a criminal, a communist, or a domestic terrorist?” The answer might cause them to miss the next episode of “The X Factor.”

The audacity of Obama’s open lies displays that he expects there are more stupid people in America than intelligent ones because his programs and political philosophy have already implemented the destruction on more than 50% of the population of breeding stupidity. He knows the audience like the one he spoke to on July 13th did not have the capacity to think because not only did Obama and his politics rob the rich of their money to give to the masses of democracy in the form of mob rule, but he has robbed the poor of their very minds by making it so they don’t even have to think in order to get up in the morning. With such a complacent and lazy electorate, there are no minds to challenge a liar as he declares that socialism is the way of America and always has been.

The only success Obama has managed in his presidency of which the seeds were planted during the Clinton years was that extremism is now the law of the land, and people like me who expect truth, justice and the American way are considered the radicals. It is considered extreme to even question the criminality of a sitting president, which was the criminal intent of the progressive party all along. By putting Obama in office with his loose morality and welfare mentality he was led to the Oval Office by the very hand of evil involving crimes against mankind that were hidden in plain sight and beyond investigation. In this upside down world it is OK for Harry Reid to question the tax records of Mitt Romney but not OK to demand the birth certificate of Obama even though the one that The White House produced was a forgery. The latter are called “birthers” but when Reid does the same extremism against Romney, it is endorsed and accepted by all, because the minds of man are already defeated, and the criminals in government know it.

Obama does not care if there are people who see what he’s up to, because he knows through the power of democracy that if he can get the mob on his side, that there is no stopping him politically, because he has an army of dim-witted people who is growing with every new government program that will carry him like a pharaoh to the presidency. Never has such disrespect for the backbone of America ever been so evident than in the comments of July 13th 2012. Obama, the functioning communist, audaciously declared to the mob that he would steal on their behalf if all they did was vote in his favor. He pandered to them as if they were equals to the productive in society, but the real goal was to remove from them the guilt of their ineptness so that they would pass on those traits to a new generation of progressive youngsters who embrace open communism.

This situation is extremely serious, and if Obama does not pay for his crimes, our society will crumble. The mentality of his looting nature is dangerous, but even worse is his disregard for those who are truly intelligent. He knows the mob outnumbers the wise, and he is openly challenging his detractors. The intentions of those who put Obama in office are nearly complete. Their battle plan against America is obvious. But few have the courage or intelligence to challenge that plan. For myself, I do not acknowledge a criminal as my president, and if the law were allowed to work, I believe Obama would be convicted of many crimes. But we live in an age, and a land where more and more often President Obama leads a nation of the destitute to open looting of the rich for a cause of communism born in the mind of his childhood mentor——Frankie. And he and his fellow attackers no longer feel they need to hide it.

A terrorist is not just someone who straps bombs to themselves to blow people up.  A terrorist is anyone who uses fear to conceal the truth, and President Obama is certainly guilty of that.  Because the truth indicates that Obama is the worst president in the history of America and may very well be remembered among the emperors of Rome who were most tyrannical.

The Real Ellsworth Toohey: Anthony Lane Reviews ‘Dark Knight Rises’

I am very happy that the movie Dark Knight Rises stayed on top of the box office rankings for three weeks in a row in spite of the terrible shooting at Aurora, Colorado. To date the worldwide sales for Dark Knight Rises is at $750 million and continuing to grow. After three weeks of running at the top it beat the opening of the Total Recall remake by more than $10 million dollars. Dark Knight Rises made $36,440 million in domestic sales during a weekend of heavy competition at a run time of 2 hours and 45 minutes, which defies logic in Hollywood terms. Dark Knight Rises is only $40 million dollars behind the domestic total of The Dark Knight–the previous Batman film in the Nolan trilogy–at its 17 day total mark, which is quite incredible considering the blanket of horror that shrouded a very good film on the opening weekend tragedy.

But Why?

The why is the reason I sat in the Regal Theater long after the movie credits ended and only silence in an empty arena looked back at me with a blank screen white and motionless. I know damn well why Dark Knight Rises is so successful and there are factions on the progressive political side that fears that reason, because they know it too and work to prevent it. The movie is fantastic not because it has any particular realism to the story line. Some might find parts of it unbelievable as the heroics might sometimes defy logic. But Dark Knight Rises is not about realism, it’s about what lives in the human heart and why. It is about what works in society and what doesn’t, and it holds up the confusing messages of our current world and takes viewers on an incredible journey into topics that baffle us in the light of day. Read my review by CLICKING HERE.

I will have to give Christopher Nolan credit; he played the ultimate Don Diego. Only people who know me well will understand what I mean by that, but Nolan pulled off a miracle that critics should have seen coming in the previous two films. I suspected it was coming, but I had no idea that he would be able to pull it off with a 2 hour and 45 minute movie without Warner Brothers cutting the film down to an even 2 hours, because the extra 45 minutes contain all the important messages that progressives have managed to suppress for many years of film making. Dark Knight Rises is the movie that Ayn Rand would have put her support behind, along with Walt Disney, and John Wayne. CLICK HERE TO SEE WHY. Nolan working within the framework of a progressive town wore the mask himself and did the impossible delivering to the world a film they needed to see.

And the world is HUNGRY for it. Once critics saw the film and realized the heavy anti-collectivist message Dark Knight Rises contained they tried to back out of their gushy support for Christopher Nolan, which up to a few weeks ago could do no wrong. But it was too late.

You see, the battle for the heart of mankind is at stake, and progressives want to posses that heart. They want control of the media in virtually every way and they do not want competition in thought, because their ideas cannot compete directly with a philosophy of freedom. If you are familiar with the great novel The Fountainhead there are a million Ellsworth Toohey’s working today as newspaper reporters, newscasters, and film critics. Dark Knight Rises directed by the critically acclaimed Christopher Nolan turned out to be a work of Howard Roark and the critics didn’t catch it till after the film hit theaters and a gush of anxiety rippled through progressive communities like an earthquake.

To see an example of what I’m talking about here are a couple of reviews from Anthony Lane of The New Yorker. The New Yorker is a progressive publication in the extreme. They were progressive well before there was ever a Huffington Post, a Daily Show, and Bill Maher. They were progressive when George Soros was still making his fortune as a capitalist on Wall Street. I have read The New Yorker for years as a way to hone my writing skills, because they often publish very good short stories and I enjoy their articles. They’d never publish anything I’d write because my politics is way too conservative for them, but I do appreciate good literature even if it’s progressive. But it cannot be ignored that they are attempting to paint Dark Knight Rises as unsophisticated tripe that should be ignored by popular culture. Below are two links from The New Yorker so you can see for yourself what is being said by them and how. Read these reviews intently. The gap between what the general public wants and what the progressive desires for mankind is absolutely clear by looking at the words of the reviewers who have come out against Dark Knight Rises.

It is in such pretentiousness that many Victorian well wishers hold much sway. For the leeching progressive who desires human weakness, ever-growing government, and perpetual debt they fully endorse films and other art that supports their cause. They do not want characters like Batman to inspire an entire generation of young people toward the cause of inner strength and valor. Valor to the progressive is the Holy Water of political exorcism. Hollywood fears these types of progressive critics because they are perceived to be the intellectual elite and don’t want the intellectual elite to alienate Hollywood from cocktail conversation.

But it’s OK Hollywood to turn the progressive opinion loose. The numbers from Dark Knight Rises should solve the question once and for all. Dark Knight Rises will make well over a billion dollars for Hollywood, much, much more than Slumdog Millionaire. Making the kind of movies that make people like Anthony Lane happy will not make Hollywood money. But making movies like Dark Knight Rises will. And it takes more than dressing up a guy in a bat suit to pull it off. The movie has to have the correct message that audiences respond to, and Dark Knight Rises has it, and they put it up on the screen without apology.

To understand the intention of The New Yorker’s Anthony Lane all one needs to do is read Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead. Ellsworth Toohey is a character in the microcosm of that classic novel that many of today’s critics and newspaper journalists play similar roles. In media circles, the New Yorker is considered to be the top rung of social thought, and out of all the journalists who wish to become great novelists, or work for a big news organization, they read the opinions of The New Yorker, where writers like Anthony Lane help shape the parameters of society in the exact same say that Ellsworth Toohey did against Howard Roark in The Fountainhead, written in 1943. So the tricks are not new, but if left unchecked will play out perpetually forever and to great destructive effect.

In The Fountainhead, Toohey was furious that Howard Roark was able to build the type of architectural designs that authenticated Roark’s individual existence. So Toohey used his influence at the newspaper he worked at to shape social thought away from Roark’s designs even though the public enjoyed the originality, and strength of them. Toohey being the gatekeeper of what was “cool” in society or “uncool” attempted with all his effort to bring Roark to his knees in complete destruction for the sole reason that Roark functioned outside of the influence of Toohey. For an example, below is a short line from Toohey from The Fountainhead. Then compare what Anthony Lane says about Dark Knight Rises in the linked New Yorker movie reviews above with the Toohey quote in mind. If you know the Rand work, you will understand immediately. If you are still being exposed to this work, then it might take a moment of thought to behold.

• Don’t set out to raze all shrines—you’ll frighten men. Enshrine mediocrity—and the shrines are razed.
o Ellsworth Toohey, p. 636 of The Fountainhead

Now, The New Yorker quote from the July 30th 2012 film review.

• Be honest. How badly would you not want Bruce—or Batman—to show up at one of your parties? He has no small talk (and Bale, as an actor, has charisma but no charm), although ask him about fear, anger, and other large abstract nouns, especially as they relate to him, and he’ll keep you in the corner all night. He doesn’t eat or drink, besides toying with a flute of champagne. Basic human tasks are beyond his reach; direct Batman to the bathroom, and it would take him twenty minuets of hydraulic shunting simply to unzip. On the rare occasions when Bruce, fresh from his helicopter or his Lamborghini, enters a reception with a girl or two on his arm, he looks deeply uncomfortable, and Nolan, as if sharing that unease, tends to hurry him through the moment. The point—and, after three installments, it seems a fatal one—is that the two halves of our hero form not a beguiling contrast but a dreary, perfect match. Both as Wayne and as super-Wayne he seems indifferent, as the films themselves are, to the activities of little people and to the claims of the everyday, preferring to semi-purse his lips, as if preparing to whistle for an errant dog, and stare pensively into the distance. Caped or uncaped, the guy is a bore. He should have kids; that would pull him out of himself. Or else he should hang out with Iron Man and get wasted. He should have fun.
o Anthony Lane from The “esteemed” New Yorker.

If you understand the media network and how it works from the top where Anthony Lane writes from to the bottom, where the local 22-year-old journalism major is trying hard to impress editors at large publications so they can advance their careers by mimicking the type behavior exhibited in The New Yorker, you can begin to understand why I did not want to leave the theater at the end of Dark Knight Rises, because the way the system is set up, such movies hardly ever get made to the epic scale shown in the latest Batman film.

Yes, there is a war for the heart of man, and too many writers trained in colleges and film schools have been taught to bend their will to the Anthony Lanes of the world. The writing pool in Hollywood has been watered down with progressive tripe, in spite of the hunger for American audiences to witness the exceptional. So Hollywood has turned to comic books, not destroyed by progressivism for new material to put on the big screen, because comic books have not been destroyed by the Ellsworth Toohey’s of literature. The American public wants exceptionalism. Children want more than mediocrity, and much of their anger as young people approaching adulthood is the realization that the world they live in is mediocre, shaped in large by people like Anthony Lane. Because when an example of exceptionalism shows itself, progressives attempt to crush them before they have a chance to encourage others to also rise above mediocrity.

I appreciate exactly how difficult it was to bring a movie like Dark Knight Rises to the big screen, and it is now obvious that like Nolan’s film Inception, the concept of delivering Dark Knight Rises was a dream within a dream within a dream. The motive was well-kept and hidden from people like Anthony Lane behind the performance of Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight to set up this well conceived comic book masterpiece that arrived intact to millions of fans in a unique exposé of valor, honor, and inner strength exemplifying the plight of the individual against a parasitic attack by collectivists.

In this case, fans are voting with their wallets. But the progressive wishes for the vote to never take place, which is why more films like Dark Knight Rises does not see the light of day off a film executives desk. The process for which such restrictions occur were written by the former screen writer Ayn Rand in her masterpiece The Fountainhead. For me, to see Dark Knight Rises was equivalent to reading about Howard Roark’s construction of the Wayland Building. The journey is very similar and to see it happen is an act of wonder that I won’t soon forget.

Toohey in the novel The Fountainhead embraced socialism as a political philosophy because he was a weakling in his youth. He knew he could never be exceptional, so as he grew into an adult he used his natural manipulative abilities to bring down the world around him with aspirations of collectivism in an attempt to eliminate his own anxiety about a world that would always outpace him—as he would always be condemned to a life of mediocrity. Without knowing Anthony Lane personally, his views of the world are without doubt very close to the fictional views of Ellsworth Toohey and for the same reasons. They fear that stories like Dark Knight Rises might push society to reach for exceptionalism and are a direct threat to their meager, boring lives.

However, as the evidence at Comic Con testifies to, most people do aspire to become more than mediocre. The fan geeks and other Comic Con nerds are at least in their minds attempting to behold the heroics of exceptionalism even if their bodies cannot rise to meet the cause. It is in the act of embracing the idea of a superhero where magic actually happens, and this is to the peril of collectivism. No child at 5 years old yearns to the toy aisle at Target to search for the newest toy that will allow them to pretend they are at a New York dinner party impressing people like the snooty Anthony Lane. Instead kids look for fast cars in their Hot Wheels, action figures from The Dark Knight, and Star Wars light sabers because in such play is the attempt to be more than social yielding wants for us. Hidden deep in the mind of Anthony Lane is a concession that fantasy should be abandoned in favor of realism which falls under the spell of political control where magazines like The New Yorker set the standard of quality. But the box office results do not lie. Nobody waits in line to read The New Yorker and nobody would scammer to the theater 3 to 4 times to see the same movie like they are doing with Dark Knight Rises, if the movie was about collectivism. It is exceptionalism that audiences want and in the case of Dark Knight Rises, Director Christopher Nolan found a way to work around the system to give everybody but the progressive what they wanted. Warner Brothers get a smash hit that will help carry their studio through the rest of the year without worry. And the fans received a film that will fill their imaginations with a yearning for greatness, even if the closest they ever get is in a darkened movie theater.

The truth is in the box office take, because in spite of the progressives who wish to shape society with gentle nudges, the fans have put their money where their mouth is. This is devastating news to all the Ellsworth Toohey’s who are quite stunned at the box office take in spite of all their efforts. So it brings me great pleasure to see Dark Knight Rises continuing its path to a billion dollars. Because film studios must take note of what not just American audiences want, but the entire world. The world wants Batman, and they want their heroes uncorrupted, unafraid, and larger than life. And these days, the modern heroes’ ride the musical wave of Hans Zimmer as it is his music that most plays from my iPod hour by hour week by week on a quest for valor and hope of what can come from fearlessness.

Behold—the superman! What every young person should strive to emulate without apology!

To place in perspective just how important those box office numbers are for Dark Knight Rises consider that popular summer film geared exclusively toward older women, Magic Mike featuring male strippers was released on June 29th and to date has only made $110,894 million total, and has not been released to international markets. Magic Mike would be considered a progressive film as it plays to the feminist movement. The movie did very well the first couple of weekends as all the “liberated” women flocked to the theaters to see a movie that gave them revenge on men for all the “sexist” films they’ve watched over the years like American Pie and the Hangover. Opening that same weekend was Ted directed by the makers of the cartoon Family Guy which to date has made $203,414 million with a production budget of only $50 million, both movies could be considered a financial success, but not even in the same category as a film like Dark Knight Rises.

In the same arena however would be the latest Spiderman which is not considered a success and insiders are disappointed. Opening right before the 4th of July it had the benefit of a holiday week with a rare Tuesday midnight opening, then a following weekend to make a ton of money, but for the month of July it only made $250,640 with a production budget of $230 million, not exactly a runaway success. The only film that looks to beat Dark Knight Rises in the year of 2012 is The Avengers which opened in early May and to date has a worldwide box office take of $1.6 billion dollars after three months of release. Dark Knight Rises is already halfway at that point, and it still hasn’t opened in China or Italy. But what those last mentioned films have in common as opposed to the more progressive films like Ted and Magic Mike is that they are superhero movies—movies about individuals doing big and glorious things. Critics like those who write for The New Yorker and other so-called prominent publications seem to dislike money, so to them all the movies are on equal footing. But in a world where fans of movies vote with the price of a ticket, the differences are extremely clear. In the end, the ones left standing in the corner talking to themselves won’t be Batman at the dinner party but the pretentious socialite that wants to talk about feelings and how to save the poor which global socialism created. Everyone else will be at the movies watching Batman kick the crap out of the kind of people who write for The New Yorker.
