The Vico Cycle is Hard at Work in the Killing of Innocent People in New Zealand

Only the path of the overman can allow what I’m about to say about the shooting in New Zealand to be understood. I understand that all the people more interested in getting drunk, smelling the farts of their friends, and chasing after the wife of their neighbor won’t get the big picture. They just don’t have a mind for it. Most people don’t and won’t see the big picture required to know the truth about why Brenton Tarrant opened fire into a mosque in Christchurch New Zealand killing 50 or so and wounding many others. It’s not a matter of conspiracy, but in understanding the subtilties of human history, the direction of evolutionary society, and the nature of mankind’s natural autonomy. It has nothing to do with skin color, sex, or even politics. It’s all about control however and containing within the imagination of the human being the limits so that massive crimes against intellect can continue unimpeded for a great sin that has been with us since before Adam and Eve plucked fruit from a forbidden tree. For those left in the dust of conceptual knowledge regarding Brenton Tarrant, I suggest reading some James Joyce, particularly one of my favorites in Finnegan’s Wake then understand that in the Vico Cycle we’ve been here before and history dictates we do something new or risk reducing ourselves back into a fetal position. Then at that point we can have an intelligent conversation about what really needs to happen. Gun laws won’t change a thing. The foundations of human civilization are where we must begin and end on this journey of future state intentions.

To those who don’t travel much, especially outside of the United States these days, the world is pretty much a dump from a conservative point of view. Even the great cities of the world that are featured in our favorite movies and are traditionally destination targets of our best literature are already deeply committed to their part of the Vico Cycle, they are regressing back to a theocratic time abandoning the progress of all civilization in favor of what has been, which was war, war, and more war topped off with scandal, suppression and intellectual stagnation. To most of the world these days, due to the efforts of Socialist International people politically if measured correctly are far to the left of Karl Marx. The mother of Brenton Tarrant was one of those people so it is not as if the gunman was a bastion of right wing thinking. When he announced in his manifesto that he was following in the footsteps of several right-winged terrorists the nature and concern of them are still far to the left of the typical American. They are not even on the same scale as the ones the world functions from so the vantage point of Tarrant was corrupted from the very beginning.

I’m not so sure that Tarrant isn’t a far left lunatic deeply in love with Pakistan and the Middle East adopting this character he displayed at the mosque. I think based on the evidence I’ve so far seen that Brenton Tarrant was performing his role in the scheme of things as a double agent type of personality, what he said and did was the opposite of his sensibilities and was designed to have the opposite effect of what he claimed to protest. Anybody could write a manifesto like the one he did even if his mind was the opposite in its intended targets. Instead of wanting to really stop mass immigration he was trying to accelerate it by putting those opposed to it on their heels in defense of their positions, paving the way for more of a global invasion of ideas and archaic religions meant to carry mankind back to before the stone ages where theocracy limited our understanding to gods throwing lightning bolts at each other and sleeping with our wives when we weren’t looking. I don’t believe Brenton Tarrant was a right winged activist, quite the opposite. He was an actor playing the part of a terrorist to put pressure on American politics to let down its guard and allow the invasion to continue unmolested. That is why he mentioned Candace Owens and Donald Trump in his multipage statement, to put pressure on them to stop doing what they do, not to support them.

During the loss of his father in 2010 Tarrent took his inheritance and started to travel the world and it is on this journey that he fell in love with areas in the Middle East. Obviously, he became radicalized during this period but as a person of western heritage he approached the problem of convincing the world to move further to the political left by masking his terrorist intentions behind a personality that reflected the fears of all civilization. Brenton is too loose with his terms “fascist” in his manifesto to the point where it sounds contrived and too closely associated with the antics of Nazi Germany. And by mentioning Candace and President Trump in the same written document which the media of the globe would savagely contemplate it would force all such supporters to hide their true opinions and change their stance on immigration and the mixing of cultures to the point where the accelerated intentions of the most radical leftist might be finally realized.

The reactions of the world were predictable and known before the terrorist attack was taken. In New Zealand gun laws require a license to have firearms so they are not exactly easy to get. I would compare their stringent requirements to the difficulty of buying suppressors in the States, a real pain in the ass. But of course the prime minister of New Zealand immediately went to a measure of stricter gun laws to prevent something like this from ever happening again. Brenton Tarrent knew all this would happen and it was part of his terrorist act to ignite the discussion. New Zealand is a peaceful country with very little crime, so by targeting this part of the world, it would capture everyone’s attention and continue to put pressure on the United States to reform their gun policies and immigration positions to accepting more left leaning direction toward a theocracy for which the governments of the world could more adequately protect their secrets.

That is the true intention here, the governments in their disorganized bluster of neurotic intentions are quite ominous in their desires for control. Even to the point that a president of the United States can’t get a straight answer on alien interactions, because nobody will tell them the truth, the real powers that seek to control mankind are hard at work trying to keep us all on the Vico Cycle and after the anarchy of our present age desire quite lustfully to carry us all back to a theocracy. That is the preferred state of governments who want most to rule over the human race from a position of strength, they want to use religion to connect us to god for which they control the path, just as has been the case through every major civilization in known history. The Muslim faith is just as theocratic as a Christian one and if the world is at war over which one will prevail, then the real discoveries that are in front of us in this new space age might be averted. From Brenton Tarrent’s point of view, if he could accelerate a war between the religions, then he could also stabilize the control governments have over the minds of the globe’s residents. Like a true fascist which he claimed to be, his goals were far to the left of the typical conservative in the United States.

There is no more powerful country in the world than the United States and much like Rome the barbarian hoards of the conquered domains were jealous and vengeful that their cultures did not tap into the power of western civilization the way the Roman Empire did. So they fought hard to chip away at Rome politically and militarily until eventually the will to maintain Rome fell away and the stupid barbarians ransacked all the intelligence gained under the banner of advanced culture and Europe was plunged into the Dark Ages. That is the goal here, but only this time globally. The world desperately wants the United States to fall economically, and morally so that they can all revert back together to a time of theocracy and guns are banned so that nobody can protect themselves from the government that can’t rub two sticks together to make a sound, yet want to control us all in every manner of what we eat, what we learn, and what we own. The terrorist attack in New Zealand had nothing to do with what Brenton Tarrant said it was for, but rather all the things he didn’t even mention.

The Overman

Lately there is a need for a lot of context and as I have said on many occasions, here and elsewhere, the battle of our times is not political, its psychological. The insane are trying to hide their ailments from the world behind a veil of chaos, and often they aren’t doing it maliciously, but for their own survival. For me the Michael Jackson documentary on HBO was an event to attempt to destroy the good work that the musical artist did, and for many reasons the same tactics are being applied to President Trump. I see a much bigger picture occurring than what is being covered these days and for me a lot of this contemplation was ignited over a discussion on the radio about great movies from the past. One that came up was Pale Rider and a joke emerged about what happened to the Clint Eastwood character at the end. There was a period in the 80s that Donald Trump was clearly a part of, Michael Jackson was helping to forge, President Reagan was attempting to live up to and even music was quite obsessed with it, but where mankind was attempting to tap into Friedrich Nietzsche’s overman idea, or as he called it, the Übermensch. There was a long deep line of opponents to it, everything from political leaders to religious scholars and the overall conflict essentially was the above the line and below the line thinking that I’m always talking about. Nietzsche wanted for mankind to rise above the line while most of the world wanted to stay below and that is the conflict of our day. In our art, in the 80s the overman ideas was taking root, but we lost it during the Clinton administration. And now with Trump as president it is coming back again and everyone against such an idea is having a complete meltdown.

I didn’t grow up with Nietzsche. I came to him much later in my life, during my twenties through my extensive reading of Joseph Campbell. The anti-institutionalism of the German philosopher was something I could relate to so that’s how I came to enjoy his magna opus of philosophy, Thus Spoke Zarathustra and this idea of an overman, for which this site is aptly named. I think when I did read Thus Spoke Zarathustra I was 25 and everything in my life was literally trying to kill me, which didn’t seem very fair. But instead of committing suicide I read a lot of books. At that time I was being sued over a business venture, I was then sued over a real estate transaction and I was fighting to keep my family together as many outside elements were very hostile to my marriage to my wife. And we’re not talking about a little hostile, it was quite excessive and much of that hostility was due to my very solid beliefs about the way things should be, and they just didn’t like it or feel comfortable with. I had a very terrible relationship with a brother-in-law at the time which would repeat with many other people over the next 15 years for all the same reasons, and his goal was to outright destroy my marriage into the family in ways that would make the novel The Great Gatsby seem like a Winnie the Poo story. To say life was rough would be a severe understatement.

While I sorted out all the elements and hostilities, I even got hit by the IRS for taxes on a business that lost a lot of money that I had to settle by working three full-time jobs and we only had one car, so I rode a bicycle to all those jobs on a daily 20 mile loop that I started at 4:30 AM in the morning and ended at 11:30 PM at night and I did that for many, many years. This included Saturday and Sunday.  I was averaging about 110 hours a week just to keep my family above water without help from anybody, no family and certainly no government.  Most of my trouble came quite honestly because I always insisted on being an above the line person. That’s why the Nietzsche stuff was so attractive to me. While I was struggling to survive the basics at life I really only had my breaks at work to look forward to, my books that I’d get to read in these little 10 to 15 minute segments. That doesn’t sound like much but out of my whole day I was getting about an hour and a half of breaks and those were completely filled with reading books, so I learned a lot in a very short period of time. Sure, I was in hell, but I learned to enjoy it.

The problems with my marriage and brother-in-law, started when he realized that I wasn’t interested in being a cool kid with him. He liked to smoke pot and was an early advocate of it. He was and still is a very below the line person yearning constantly for the minimums in life. He was older than me so when I first met him I tried to not let him know that I thought he was a loser, but he was constantly comparing himself to me and his aggression became quite intense to the point where he was constantly working behind the scenes to destroy my marriage basically so he wouldn’t have to deal with me at dinners and family get togethers. I came to see him as a great destroyer, a person who had no desire to do anything in his life above the line and sought to bring everyone around him down so that he wouldn’t have to look in the mirror and see a complete loser, because he’d have plenty of company. I wasn’t mad at him however, even though I had every right to be, because I saw that people like him were as common as raindrops in a hurricane. The world was filled with them and they work at every level of our society. To see them all you have to do is look for the little signs they give off indicating that they want to function below the line in everything they do.

Going back even further you might understand why my brother-in-law didn’t like me, because a lot of people felt as he did. From my earliest memories—I have very vivid memories as early as two years of age—I never could stand people who belched and farted because to me they were reminders of how gross humans could be. Both of my grandparents had farms so when we’d visit there was always dog shit, cow shit, chicken shit—shit of some kind everywhere and I’d freak out if some of it got stuck to my shoes. I hated the idea of it lodged in the tread of my tennis shoes which persists to this day. That is why I either wear shoes with wide tread that is easy to clean or flat bottom boots with no tread at all so that shit and other things can’t be carried around my day with me. I have always frowned down on anybody who farts or belches with an audible indication. I don’t want to smell or hear of an idea of human waste and to be honest sex is nearly just as gross. As a kid and teenager those were my rules, even in my car I had a sign in it that indicated no smoking which was highly unusual for a teenager. Not to mention my violent opposition to drug use. Once a person farted in my car and the thought of the poop particles embedding themselves into my leather seats angered me to the point where I beat the shit out of the guy who was at that time a good friend and threw him out of my car in the middle of a highway. I got into a lot of fights and had many rough relationships all through my life because of my insistence to function always above the line, even when I had every excuse to blame the world and god for my circumstances. And in the case of “god”, and this is as true today as it was back then, I saw god as an idiot because he or “it” created all these losers in the first place and ultimately left them to us to deal with. Anybody who creates losers who crave below the line thinking in any manner to me is an imperfect creature that certainly doesn’t deserve respect. My wife and I had just such a discussion the other day where I told her that god was an idiot for making the kind of losers we deal with on a routine basis. She likes to think of god as a perfect creature of an all-knowing nature. I think he’s just stupid and needs to be overcome.

So I grew to find accurate definitions that applied to my outlook on life in Nietzsche’s work. While interpretations of Nietzsche’s overman vary wildly, here is one of his quotations from Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Prologue, §§3–4):

I teach you the overman. Man is something that shall be overcome. What have you done to overcome him?… All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood, and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is ape to man? A laughing-stock or painful embarrassment. And man shall be that to overman: a laughing-stock or painful embarrassment. You have made your way from worm to man, and much in you is still worm. Once you were apes, and even now, too, man is more ape than any ape… The overman is the meaning of the earth. Let your will say: the overman shall be the meaning of the earth… Man is a rope, tied between beast and overman—a rope over an abyss … what is great in man is that he is a bridge and not an end.

It is good to have standards. Some might say that I have impossibly high standards and the lazy losers out there have a choice to not even attempt to live up to them. But this is a fight I’ve fought all my life and I certainly won’t be yielding to anything now. I’ve come this far, I plan to go even further. And that is why I have sympathy for people who have tried to embrace the overman concept even if they have failed, people like Michael Jackson and Donald Trump. Trump as a president is probably the closest that there is in the world to getting what I have always been fighting for. Intellectually he’s not curious enough to master all the elements of being an overman, but he gets the basic concept which is why everyone hates him who want to function below the line. Because Trump keeps raising it. And one thing that holds true no matter what your vantage point, if you try to live up to an above the line standard, people are just going to hate you for it. And if you want to survive, you’ll learn to love their hate for you, because it tells you that you are doing all the right things in life.

We’re Overmedicating our Children

I have not been surprised about the results of Erica Komisar’s work over the last few years. As a psychoanalyst she has been advocating the importance of mother’s staying home with their children for the first three years of their lives and how monumental fathers are to children’s lives consistently for a while. She appears frequently on television and radio interviews and is respected outside of the partisan political loop. What she is talking about isn’t political at all, its pure logic not motivated by the type of science that is always seeking funding from government sources, but she genuinely wants to help people not have so many problems in their lives. I know of her work as a kind of similar personality who has the same goals and objectives in life so I cheer her on for continued success. However, I was particularly struck by an interview she had on Fox & Friends over the weekend of March 0th, 2019 where the discussion was simply put, “we’re overmedicating our children.”

Erica is a very polished and professional personality who has a great public profile. She lets the facts speak for themselves, however my role in everything is much different so I don’t have to mince words to the same degree. I have strong opinions and have a means to communicate them in various ways, most often with some color when necessary. And on this topic, I don’t think I will be as nice as she is on this matter which I consider one of the great tragedies of our modern age. You might say dear reader that I have an obsession with proper mental health and I spend a considerable amount of time trying to help people, especially people close to me, aspire to greatness within the confines of their skulls. I think there is nothing greater in the universe than a human mind and there is no tragedy greater than wasting it. I’m against all forms of intoxication, including alcohol and I think if people aren’t trying to read a book a week that they are wasting their lives. So for me one of the great crimes of our century is this tendency to medicate children for every little problem instead of teaching them to be problem solvers themselves. For hyper little boys which is part of their mechanism for acquiring intelligence and wisdom as they grow older, we have destroyed several generations of our species intellectually with over medicating them for every type of anxiety.

I don’t believe ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is anything to medicate, it’s a tool children have of obtaining as much information before they physically hit the age of puberty for their own survival and by numbing them to its affects, we are severely limiting their abilities as adults. It is no surprise that so many adults are functioning so poorly in life, not even able to solve basic problems at the psychological level, because their means of learning how was destroyed in them when they were children. Then to make matters worse we have centralized most of our education and what we teach has been entirely incorrect for individual functions. This has made parenting particularly difficult because our political structure has fed the myth that out there in the world are the keys to happiness, in increased GDP, employment ratios, and the feminization goals of modern life where the real solutions are at home between and adult and a child.

Watching the new HBO documentary on Michael Jackson I had a very different take on the whole thing than any other news outlet that I have read or watched on the matter. I think they all miss the most critical point of the situation, and ultimately Michael Jackson died due to his addiction to drugs for which he had brought into his life to deal with all his various forms of depression. The same could be said of Prince who also died prematurely due to drug consumption, prescribed or otherwise. The desire to take any drugs of any kind indicates that there is something severely wrong with the way you are thinking. If you have a healthy mind, you should not even be taking an aspirin. I think the Michael Jackson situation is something I’d defend. Jackson was a pure talent and a great contributor to our culture. But the guy had his childhood ripped away from him and it certainly had an impact on his mental health. Did he become a child molester? I think that is the wrong way to look at his problems. He was damaged goods moving into his adult life because of many factors, basically his parents sold him off to the slavery of the music industry, then they rode the gravy train. Once Jackson was old enough to realize it, he was being crushed by the pressure of securing his family obligations and he just couldn’t handle it, because his mind was not there enough to deal with the problems, and he never got over it. He tried to repair what was broken by going back to his childhood and hanging out with children he never had a chance to spend time with as a kid himself. Did sex happen, probably, but it’s the why that matters. How many adults right now have unhealthy yearnings to have sex with young people? Way, way, way too many. The real question is why. Because as children they are missing something important so that they can be proper adults. When we, as a culture, use medicine as a substitute to good parenting the product we get is a broken child and most of the time that person stays broken all their lives.

You can’t cheat the process folks, children need a mother. Government schools are not a replacement. And children need a masculine figure that participates in their life diligently. There is no better way to raise a child but with a very caring mother and a confident, strong father. No drug in the world or education system can offer a reasonable replacement. But even that isn’t the answer because bad parenting can be even worse, a parent or both who have mental problems of their own passing those on to the next generation with lazy drugs and a lack of intellect for a young mind starving for knowledge. When a kid doesn’t get that knowledge, they are often ruined for life and we look on in horror as to why, such as in the case of Michael Jackson. Even as a modern businessman says to his wife, “I love you honey, I’ll be back next week from my business trip to Asia,” yet while there he is seeking out sex with 13 to 14-year-old girls. And the wife is slamming vodka and wine numbing her mind to the world around her because deep down inside she knows—but can’t do anything about it as she watches reruns of Friends trying to figure out why her life is so screwed up. And when her kids want a book read to them, or want to know why the moon looks different each night, sometimes its full, sometimes it looks like a smile in the sky, she just puts them on Ritalin to shut them up. Their teacher’s at school keeps complaining about their hyperactive nature so the defeated mom just says, “what the hell, why not?” And that is how the world is destroyed, one person at a time, drug by drug.

I would recommend anything Erica Komisar writes or says in an interview to a person seeking answers. We have an obligation to have a direct conversation about this matter because it is a massive international tragedy presently. If you add up the loss of all the children we have now to abortion and add that loss to the mental impediments that most children suffer through these days because they can’t trust their parents, they can’t trust their schools and they sure as hell can’t trust their government, we have a major crisis on our hands. And not talking about it won’t make it magically go away.

If Manafort is Going to Jail, then why not Comey and Mueller, they have defrauded the American treasury of far larger sums of money

OK, so let’s get this straight, the government prosecuted President Trump’s campaign manager from the 2016 election for denying the IRS $6 million of revenue by not reporting $16 million in income and for that he has to go to jail for 47 months as a 69-year-old man stripped of essentially everything he has built over a lifetime only to beg and plea like a dog in the end so that he won’t die in prison. There’s a little bit more to the Manafort case but essentially, he was busted just because of his association with President Trump by a FBI investigation in search of a crime. When they couldn’t find one that implicated President Trump they prosecuted him for what they did find, issues that would have went uncharged had Paul Manafort never been involved as a campaign manager for the future president. However, that same FBI under the care of special investigator Robert Mueller who had just recently been denied the job as Director of the FBI was able to spend more than $25 million on a political witch hunt to go after Manafort and many other Trump associates kicking down the doors to Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer, running General Flynn through a career ruining process as well as many others, yet no jail time is proposed to Mueller for the same type of fraud that the courts against Manafort proposed. Why is that?

Of course, we all know the rhetorical answer, the entire Manafort case is a gross abuse of power by a government that is out of control. The FBI had become weaponized to protect a below the line status quo and the intention was to ruin the Trump presidency and spit in the face of half the nation that legitimately elected him by creating a false narrative and blaming a hostile country with the GDP of a rattlesnake, as if Russia could do anything on the world stage that might actually be harmful, with no money to perform the task. The FBI and their accomplices didn’t care if they started WWIII with hostile nations like Russia, Iran or North Korea so long as President Trump was pushed out of office so they could still have their hour-long lunch breaks and 30% more pay raises over civilian markets by keeping any sort of change away from them.

I say it all the time and will continue to do so, if Manafort is the bench mark for who should go to jail for crimes, then everyone from Robert Mueller to Hillary Clinton should be going to jail for the same. Certainly, at the very least FBI chiefs such as Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey should—it was their work to blatantly push for the $25 million special prosecution in the first place to fulfil a purely political objective and tamper with an American election in favor of their wives’ sensibilities. In Comey’s case as a typical beta male, his wife runs his household and she was a Hillary Clinton supporter. So to make her happy and his network of socialites within the Beltway culture he acted against the nature of America’s political system to overthrow an election by abusing his office. Who thinks that Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok acted alone in their own crimes? Hillary Clinton was guilty beyond doubt yet under the care of Peter Strzok evidence was destroyed, immunities given and illegal spying and witness tampering was going on. And his bosses knew about it, that is why James Comey was fired by Trump as the Director.

Millions and millions of dollars were wasted not only on the Mueller investigation which was completely politically motivated, but on hiding the crimes of the FBI aligning themselves with the Democrat party to get Hillary Clinton elected. There seems to be an assumption among all those government employees that they are not guilty because so many of them participated in the crime. That the only difference between them and Paul Manafort is that he was an individual and they were a collective and that their crime is hidden behind the sheer numbers of participants. The assumption that they can’t be busted because they themselves are the government and there are simply too many people to prosecute is at the core of their behavior. That accounts for the smugness of these government criminals, they don’t believe that they can be prosecuted and their actions show their raw arrogance and disregard for justice, or the money they wasted in the process.

Remember Lois Lerner who as a big chief at the IRS used that agencies collection powers to strong-arm Tea Party groups. I remember that case well because I was drug into it myself. If the IRS could have found any dirt on me you can bet I would have received the Paul Manafort treatment just through my associations with the Liberty Township Tea Party that was at the center of that case and my friend Justin Binik-Thomas. Yeah, I’ve tried these shoes on before so I have quite clear clarity on the matter. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen the federal government grossly abuse its power and the resources they have confiscated from the electorate to manipulate the political tide of our nation. I’m not in jail because I live a squeaky-clean life and if people abuse my freedom, I have a tendency toward violence. So I’m not as easy of a target as Paul Manafort who did live a checkered life that was easy to prosecute. But the ideas are the same, if Manafort hadn’t helped Trump in the summer of 2016 win the delegate count ahead of the RNC convention, he wouldn’t be in jail now. He’d just be another white-collar criminal like most of the Beltway culture is, and he’d still be invited to Washington D.C. parties on Friday nights to mingle with the other social butterflies.

What happened to Paul Manafort and the government’s ability to toss him into jail for 47 long months is a gross abuse of power. It’s a shame that it was even allowed to happen. Paul Manafort may have defrauded the IRS and the government of money they expected to receive just by the sheer power of their offices, but they have abused the system far worse and wasted far more money than he did, yet they are not going to jail. Why the hell not? So what if 20 to 30 of the top players involved in trying to remove President Trump from office did go to jail? Would the system collapse on itself from the revelation that so many government officials are just dirty cops and massive abusers of power? Would knowing such a thing wreck our system of government far into the future? I don’t think so. Rather I would argue that by not prosecuting them far greater damage is being inflicted and that is the real crime here—not acting when its obvious that we must. Just in the case of Robert Mueller, he has defrauded the American treasury of over $25 million on a political witch hunt, completely motivated by political theater than the pursuit of justice. Why wouldn’t we treat him the same. The answer is, we should!

Chevrolet and Ford’s Circular Firing Squad

It continues to surprise me how many grown adults roll through their lives looking to advance through pity. It came to my mind quite sharply while watching a television commercial for Chevrolet showing that many Ford buyers were converting. While to people unbeknownst in the realm of reality might think that was a good thing the real story was completely avoided. Who cares that two American automobile companies in a circular firing squad were competing against each other? The real story is why that same Chevy truck isn’t being shipped to India, or Japan, or even South America. The real story isn’t that Chevy took away business from Ford, it’s that American car companies continue to lose to foreign competition. It would be much more meaningful if there were a commercial showing that car buyers were purchasing Chevy cars over Toyota or Honda. Foreign car markets continue to dominate in a field that should be exclusively an American specialty. After all, while cars are now abundant in the world, no place uses them to the degree that America does. That American cars are not first in the minds of drivers is a bigger concern and one that has many twists and turns of psychological imposition.

Without question it was the American automobile market that made them commonplace around the world. For a few decades it was American made cars that dominated the world stage and was yearned for by everyone. But the labor unions moved in and autonomy in innovation and delivery moved out while other countries entered the market and simply did better than the United States in manufacturing techniques and cost to quality the hammer of decision had been delivered and the big three automakers in America, Ford, GM and Chrysler found themselves on the outside looking in. The great city of Detroit which had been driven to growth by the global automaker started an eventual slide that would nearly take it off the map all together. That is the cost of bad decisions and stagnant thinking which can be viewed clearly when studying American car companies and the people who support them.

There is always a bit of arrogance when you speak with people who come historically out of those markets, an entitled feeling that we were great once, and that somehow, they were cheated because the world no longer valued them. That somehow the world was wrong in what it expected. But the truth is that the unions destroyed market innovation at the employee level. While the average Toyota worker in Japan ran to their restroom break, the American worker took their slow ass time and might even smoke a joint in the bathroom stall before returning back to the manufacturing line a half hour later. Little things like that in a company of tens of thousands add up into the final product and consumers can see and feel the difference.

When people who are just lazy in life wonder why they reach their later years getting run over by all the up and comers the problem isn’t the competition, it’s the lazy person themselves. The world wants to grow and move forward. It doesn’t want the restrictions of governments or even socialism. Only the lazy and unambitious are attracted to such things and at points in our life cycles, they may outnumber the strong and independent. But it is always the drive of the best and brightest that launch product and innovation into the global marketplace. When a consumer puts down their money for a gigantic purchase such as a new car, they aren’t buying the tradition of the name, which American car companies still seem to believe, they buy the best product. If a company cannot deliver value to a customer they’ll lose. Just as an employee will lose if they don’t continue to make themselves relevant to their employer, they’ll also be overrun by competitors who are hungry for knowledge and continue to grow intellectually much longer than the typical lazy person who wants the prestige of respect, but doesn’t want to do the work to continue to obtain it.

There is an assumption in the Chevy adds comparing themselves to Ford buyers that the rest of the world isn’t making cars. Let alone admitting that foreign markets are just much better in producing an automobile product. When presenting themselves to American markets their strategy is to just not admit that anybody else is out there and hope that their name might be enough to carry consumers into an American car purchase, and that is precisely why they are being destroyed by foreign competition. I mean who values the name of a Ford or Chevy over a BMW or Mercedes? There are still American patriots who will buy the Cadillac over the Mercedes but not nearly as many as there should be. That is the fault of the car companies to simply refuse to acknowledge their status in life and assume that their names meant more to the public than they really did.

How many people in life roll into their later years hoping that the ambitions they performed at the start of their careers would carry them through into their retirements. They are the kind of people who say, “boy, I did this or that back when I was in my 30s and I was really hot stuff.” But the lack the courage to continue to push themselves and take personal risks which inspire growth then wonder why everyone is passing them up. Those are the types of minds running General Motors and Ford these days, and is precisely why everyone is beating the hell out of them in the automobile market. It’s why Detroit declined out of relevancy being run in the ground by Democrat politicians who want to redistribute wealth created in the glory days of risk and reward thinking that names and titles would hold value well into the future. But the truth is that those things only hold value for about one generation. After that, new names come about out of competition and if you aren’t the best, you will likely be passed over in life, and that is the way it is.

A lot of people are timid by nature and by force they do one or two things great in their life because when you are young, you have to in order to get anywhere. But as soon as they get comfortable and achieve a level of respect among their peers, they lose their edge in thinking. And clearly a collection of such minds is running the American car companies. They are not attracting top talent to their companies and when they do get them, they aren’t keeping them. But the competition is, and it shows in the overall product. Chevy would have had a much better marketing approach if they could show that consumers were buying their product over Toyota and Honda. That would mean something because it is those companies who own the most market share. Beating Ford is like beating up a brother at the dinner table then calling yourself the master of the world. But the minute you step onto your front lawn mouthing off how tough you are, some other kid punches you in the mouth and shows you what the world really thinks of your toughness. America used to make the best cars, but not anymore. And until they change their attitude from the top to bottom, they never will.

Liberals Should Consider Themselves Lucky

Just a little note to the enemies of America, the liberals who value killing babies, the worship of mother earth over the advancement of science, and crushing taxation for all so that the worst and most lazy among our society can mooch off the rest of us—isn’t President Trump’s speech at the 2019 CPAC more preferable than guns in the street and outright violence to protect our Constitution? I think so, I would consider yourselves lucky that we have a mechanism in government where a 72-year-old man fresh off a 20-hour flight from Vietnam where he was on a mission for world peace could speak for over 2 hours on a Saturday afternoon to give those angry at liberalism something to cheer for instead of taking to the streets in pursuit of violence. Because to liberal reviewers of Trump’s speech, that is what is at stake, those are the options.

What a good speech from Trump, he captured very nicely the sentiment of his base which is looking pretty scary right now. We’re not talking about the 30% whom have always supported him no matter what was going on. I can count myself among that number. I always thought that it was better to elect Trump than to stage an open rebellion against liberalism, because that has been a strong sentiment on my mind for many years. It wouldn’t take much for me to organize such a thing. But I’d rather elect a president like Trump to pursue a less deadly means of establishing justice. I was very surprised that Trump brought Hayden Williams up on the stage after a brutal attack he had to endure at Berkley when Zachary Greenberg ruthlessly attacked the young Trump supporter maliciously over and over again. To his credit, Hayden took the punches without hitting back and did a pretty good imitation of Jesus that day. Eventually Greenberg was arrested and now justice can occur legally, and as President Trump indicated, Hayden can now sue everyone involved for a lot of money, which needs to happen. As violent as the attack was Berkeley itself had fostered the environment that encouraged Greenberg to attack Williams so a major lawsuit is mandated. Otherwise we have to take up arms and pursue justice that way. An unanswered response simply isn’t permissible. Just as the Nick Sandman case against the Washington Post is now underway, if this is the way of combat in modern times, conservatives must fight back in the courts and give the law a chance to redeem honor to these circumstances. Otherwise physical violence is the only next step, because we can’t take it, that’s for sure. I can’t say that I would have stood there and taken a punch the way Williams did. So it was great that President Trump singled him out and honored him properly. The young man deserved it.

But what I found most perplexing was the CNN coverage right after the speech. They were among the first to put up highlights on YouTube around four hours later and I was curious as to what they would say, so I watched it, which I normally wouldn’t. They were talking about the North Korea situation as if Trump failed in his trip. Even as they were saying such a thing Kim Jong Un indicated that he wanted to have a third meeting with President Trump to continue their talks. All the back and forth between Trump and Kim Jong Un is simply negotiating. You would think that the CNN people with their freshly provided college degrees would understand that. This stuff is like freshman year business teaching, the very basics of negotiating. Everyone does it at all levels of business. It’s just in this case that the organization is a communist country that is 6000 miles away, so face to face meetings aren’t so easy. But Trump is doing the necessary personal contact to accomplish the feat. Nothing mysterious there, yet CNN was talking about the negotiations as if they were failures. A year and a half ago the border at the DMZ was one of the coldest in the world, no information passed between the two countries there, but now its quite common. That all by itself makes Trump’s efforts far better than any other American leader in history. The CNN coverage was dripping with hate for President Trump and after his CPAC speech they were literally speechless as to what to say.

That’s when I think I really realized how lucky the political left is to be functioning under the American Constitution. They really didn’t understand what kind of fight they were in. They have vastly underestimated us in the core of the country. Liberalism is a very self-centered view of the world ironically, its followers are generally stupid and lazy by inherit design, so they have a hard time seeing the larger picture. They only see what is good for them, so they have ignored the option that if they push too far that they are going to get their asses kicked in some fashion or another. Trump’s election was a peaceful ass kicking, and liberals should be happy that our side isn’t out there punching people in the face aggressively. It does happen from time to time, but largely the violence is instigated by the political left, not the right. But the threats of violence or else have not worked out to the political left’s favor and they obviously thought that it would.

The attempt to frame that Trump went against American intelligence in his discussions with Kim Jong Un, and has not taken the bait on throwing anger at Russia’s President Putin is an attempt by the political left to cast sentiment behind our institutions, not the actions they have provided. However, in the case against the Trump election of 2016 our FBI and many other “institutions” such as the DOJ were hostile agents against American values. They tried to overthrow an American election. In that regard Kim Jong Un was far less dangerous than the FBI, so why would Trump trust wat American intelligence agencies said about Russia and North Korea? They want war to cover their own illegal behavior enacted as American institutions and Trump understands it because he has been the direct victim of it. The Mueller investigation which Trump pointed out in his speech was a political witch hunt. The enemy that is hiding on American soil behind tax payer funded institutions is far more dangerous than some kid propped up by China to be the straw man in international trade agreements. Kim Jong Un isn’t dangerous, the system that put him in place and made him a threat to global peace is, and obviously the CIA, FBI and many enemies of America working in our own government are to blame. They don’t want Trump to broker peace with North Korea because they need the cover for their own criminal conduct.

For a change people who know these things and have been thinking of taking back the American government with violence have a champion in the White House who can give speeches like the one that Trump gave at CPAC. So there is hope that these issues can be resolved without violence and I think that’s great. The political left should consider themselves lucky, at least they get to live to see another day and maybe find some happiness in their lives because Trump is in the White House. If he wasn’t, things would be much, much worse. I don’t think the political left understands that yet, but perhaps they are starting to get the picture. Trump is not only good for his political base, he’s good for those like Zachary Greenberg. Instead of violence, we are getting justice. But one way or the other, a fight is a fight worth having in whatever means needed. And so far Trump has made the need for physical violence a second option, because the first is working quite well.

To Be a Man

Well, I suppose anything can happen. During a little speech given during a Town Hall he did with the NBA star Steph Curry in Oakland, California I have to say for the first time in my life that I agree with the former president. Which is unusual because I think of Obama as a hostile agent of the American Constitution who deliberately pushed a socialist agenda of economic collapse and social destruction on the very foundations of American lifestyle and have found him to be a despicable human being. But his comments about manhood and the role they play in society in that town hall are things I agree with nearly 100%. Young people, particularly boys, need to hear from the older generation in just such a fashion much more often and Obama did a lot of good with his comments worthy of praise.

I don’t do it often, but every single time I do in some way or another when men and women are out together talking and letting their hair down a bit, there are always subtle jokes about the role men and women play together. The assumption is that men are obligated to be subservient to the feminist movement which is completely stupid because it ignores the biological needs the sexes have for their interactions. But this women can do anything a man can social movement has been very destructive. I’m not sure its been good at all for women, but it has surely been detrimental to men. Among the current millennials it is as bad as I’ve ever seen it, the sentiment is essentially a “bros before hoes” kind of thing that is a direct spawn of this entire problem, what role do men play in society and how should one act.

The void in leadership on this topic has given rise to the rap culture, another direct attribute of progressive ambitions that are completely destructive to the human race and it was in that direction that Obama directed his comments to young men. I thought it was bold to say that he only needed one woman in his life, and that there was no reason to wear gold chains to proclaim their wealth as an advertisement of personal worth. That men should be pillars of good example and have that inner self-confidence that was comfortable with themselves so that others might follow them. Those are all great things to say so Obama deserves credit for taking leadership in that direction. I was a little surprised in Steph Curry’s reaction. I know the kid can shoot a basketball but he seems pretty immature to be a superstar that so many people look up to. What I know about him prior to this Town Hall is that he doesn’t believe America landed on the moon and that he’s a political radical who refused to go to the White House after his NBA team has won several championships. It sounds like he needed to hear some manly wisdom more than anybody.

I get it, the progressive era sought to destroy masculinity and introduce this whole gender-neutral mess because they wanted to destroy the American family and replace it with a parental government. That was the entire reason for their feminist attacks on masculine attributes—to neutralize the role men play in society. But in the process, they have also thrown out all the good things as well, things that women desperately want in their lives—men who stand for something and aren’t a bunch of douchebags who have no values or a desire to exhibit them. What progressives have done to men has been deliberately destructive and harmful to the human race, so it comes with some surprise that Barack Obama said the things he did. Those comments about men are undoubtably true, but for him to say them as a progressive himself was quite something.

I’ve had the misfortune to raise two daughters in this progressive age and it has been painful. I’ve had to watch them date young men who were clearly not worthy of their time and energy. Young men to declare their own independence from the progressive expectations have responded by becoming lazy, uncaring and just outright slobs. It used to be a man would dress up for a woman to have a date and work hard to get a little kiss. The young men of this modern time just show up for a date with their pants down already and expect sex the way someone might turn on a television. For young women like my daughters they have been robbed of the beauty and wonder of healthy relationships, because the world they live in doesn’t respect such things, because the men have had their part of that role robbed from them culturally. And that was on purpose as well, if women were allowed to enjoy their sexual roles with men, then they might want to start families and maybe even stay out of the workplace caring for their children—and nobody could have that. If children grew up with two parents loving and caring for them, then those kids might not grow up looking to government to solve all their problems which was the subtle plot behind progressivism all along. Destroy the roles the sexes play with each other, encourage abortion so that new family creation is limited, keep males and females from forming healthy relationships so they turn to government for their needs, and eventually turn all attention toward a centralized government overseer.

It has stunned me to see how many young people are on CareSource as their primary insurance provider and how addicted to government they all are. When my kids would tell the boys of their lives how hard I worked to make sure everyone had everything they needed the response was, “well good for him. I’m not doing that.” Their reference was in the way I raised them. I worked on average 80 to 110 hours every week for most of their childhoods. My reasoning was to keep their mother home so that there was always a parental figure around for them. I always made sure that their mother had a car even if I had to ride a bicycle to my jobs to keep them at home safe with reliable transportation. And I still spent lots of time with my kids as a father doing fatherly things. Sure it was hard, but doing the job of being a real man often is, and it can be very rewarding for everyone when its done right. But my kids had to go through the disappointment that most of the men of their age group didn’t have such desires or experiences. Mostly, the men of today come from broken homes where the male figure is a worthless piece of crap giving terrible examples of how boys should grow into men themselves. And its been a real problem.

So for Obama to say the things he did I thought took guts and was very beneficial to the young people watching. It will of course take hundreds of thousands of such speeches to undo all the current damage, but it’s a start. I wish boys would listen to such a town hall and immediately become better in their aims to be men, but they’ll have to hear it a lot more before even thinking of changing anything. But it was still good to hear and I never thought Obama would be the one I’d praise for doing so. He deserves some recognition for his efforts, God knows that the young men of this generation need to hear it.
