The Media and Me: Why all the hate?

I generally am not a vindictive person, I let people do what they want and think what they will so long as they don’t try to impede on my life. Generally. And this is certainly true of the media. About ten years ago I was friendly with most of the media in both Cincinnati and Dayton and I did a lot of radio on WLW and was on television quite often. Back then also I was going to film festivals and doing some work in Hollywood because at the time I still thought I might end up doing work in the entertainment industry. I was always a conservative and everyone knew it, but there wasn’t a need to be contentious and fight about everything. After all, these were the days of a soft George Bush presidency and the early years of Obama, so the political left largely propped up and controlled by our media culture felt comfortable, and even entitled. So a guy like me wasn’t a threat to them. Newspapers would quote me often, television news outlets would seek my opinion and I’d write occasional pieces for national magazines and everyone was happy—except for me. One thing I never liked about that system was that I had a lot more to say about everything and editors and producers would never give me enough time to put together a complete story on a given topic. So in 2010 I decided to become my own publisher so to speak and start this blog, Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom. I never meant for it to become an endeavor of consternation, but what I have found out over the eight years since is that all media outlets hate it, and therefore don’t like me as a result.

I especially heard about how much the media doesn’t like me during this 2018 election. I’d get reports from people who associate with the press and elements close to the press who actively want to discredit everything I do, as if they were the gatekeepers of knowledge. But in reality, I write about so many things in so much detail that essentially nobody can keep up and that is the root of their anxiety. Media types are like any other worker out there, they are held to very confined standards and are certainly not free to write what they want. In the beginning I never thought of this as being a problem, but after talking to a Cincinnati Enquire reporter way back in 2011 just a year into it I realized just how jealous they were over my blog. It didn’t make much sense to me because anybody could start a blog, even them. Blog sites were free, anybody in the world could do one, so I didn’t consider what I was doing to be a threat to anybody. Just supplemental material. People would read what I’d say in newspapers and on the radio and they’d come to the blog to get more information. Since in media they don’t give you unlimited time to make your point, but just skim the highlights of any given topic.

And that is where the problems started and ended, the media never wants to solve a problem, they are perpetually the old Don Henley song “Dirty Laundry” where they need chaos, panic, and mayhem to generate the ratings they feel they need to survive, and my blog offered more than that to readers. As a writer I don’t think anybody in the United States or Europe can touch me for content and volume. I can write about more topics in quantities that often rival published books than anybody else, and that makes Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom very unique in any published venue. I didn’t set out to do that on purpose, I just let my natural inclinations take me where I felt things needed to go and I turned loose the ideas. If I want to publish articles about a reptile civilization that controls global politics and to deal with the pros and cons of that conspiracy theory, I do it and people enjoy the material. Or if we want to get into the weeds of actual political occurrences, we can do that too. Information and ideas are never bad, yet the media culture that we have had only want the headlines, never the substance. They never want a solution, only to ask the questions to provoke emotional results.

It is for that reason that I stepped gradually away from most of my media contacts. This blog did it for me. All I ever wanted to do was communicate ideas that were interesting to people who might enjoy exploring those concepts. Whether one person likes the topic or thousands really doesn’t make a difference to me. But that is also why reporters generally do not like my blog site, because it contains in it a freedom they simply don’t have. I love to read and write and I contribute to my blog in the old-fashioned way that any writer would, out of love and passion for the topics. But I would say that my efforts are similar to personalities from the past like Benjamin Franklin who did lots of things in his life, including being a publisher. I do other things in my life for money, so I have no reason to sell my published works. And that makes what I do vastly different from what all other media do and there resides the rub.

It was bound to happen sooner or later; the old modes of media would have to give way to the new. And within the new, if some publisher such as myself might come along and provide vast amounts of content out of the passion of doing it as opposed to prostituting it out like most media personalities must, then so be it. I have written millions and millions of words on a vast array of subjects but to me they all connect in very precise ways. Yet to the traditional media that can’t keep up with someone like me jealousy is their dominate emotion and that kind of thing came out dramatically on several fronts after the election of 2018. Feedback I received was nothing short of hate—that publishers like me are “ruining” the world. Well, I would ask, “from whom.” The world as we have all known it is going away, and I’m happy to see it leave. I never liked it to begin with. The age of Trump has been propelled by many people like me, but in the sheer effort of content offerings even though I am heavily restricted by Facebook, Google and Twitter, and have been for many years, the work still gets out to the people I intend for it to. If not a mass audience, a very targeted audience of people who are thinking people who are very smart. Popular mass media just have no control over this new age and they hate it. Information has been decentralized and that is a reality for the future. They could have embraced it, but they didn’t. Instead the have decided they hate me, which is their prerogative. But in the end it’s no skin off my back. I don’t need them, but they do need people like me and it was they who alienated themselves. The world will march on without them in it, and that is purely their choice to make.

Forget about Civility, We are Being Robbed: Massive evidence of voter fraud in Florida and other places mandate action

How do we know that Democrats are cheating and attempting to steal the election results in Arizona, Georgia and Florida, well, we have history of their behavior to compare it to from the 2016 election where Bernie Sanders was pushed out of the primary. We also have close coordination with the F.B.I. which has explosive evidence everywhere and still unresolved. Additionally, we know there is media coordination as well, specifically in the Sherrod Brown race against Jim Renacci where obvious double standards were applied to the sitting liberal senator over his past with domestic violence. If the defendant had been a Republican the story would have been plastered all over every newspaper in the country, but when it came to Sherrod Brown, Jim Renacci was supposed to apologize to the perpetrator. These things have always gone on mind you, but it wasn’t until Republicans started to push back and challenge the premise that the exposure was so obvious. It used to be said that politics was a dirty game, but what we are learning is that definition is largely attributed to one specific party and that the real fight of our modern time is to keep it that way. So civility is not an option, the nation and its people cannot all just get along so long as corruption and misdeeds define the process of a functioning political party. That is why I am so grateful for President Trump, because he is representing my interests well. When he fired Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, he was doing so to deal with what is coming, and Florida and this recent example of election scandal is just the latest incarnation of evil that must be crushed out of our society, because it can’t continue untended.

When people demand civility in our modern climate of interaction with fellow Americans what they are essentially saying is for us to turn away from evil. For instance, in Arizona, during the entire election night process McSally was in the lead with a margin that was consistent, yet in the days after the election as they are still counting votes, the liberal Sinema has taken the lead as the press cheers it on like a horse race that is still continuing after the finish line was already crossed. The election tampering is obvious and there won’t be any evidence of the matter because we’re dealing largely with provisional ballots that can be destroyed rather easily laving no paper trail. Of course no evidence will be uncovered because like the Hillary Clinton emails, or the coordination with the F.B.I to attempt to steal the 2016 election the evidence is destroyed so that there won’t be any. Liberals after the election day are enraged that Trump’s White House picked up a comfortable lead in the senate and did not lose seats. Since Democrats desire as the minority party to rule from the Judicial Branch they must control the appointment of judges and with Republicans having a comfortable majority this is why they are attacking those senate seats so aggressively, cheating if needed, because is they don’t cheat, they will cease to be a political party. That is all the proof we need in this case, the means to survival indicates the willingness to conspire as they have in the past.

Brenda Snipes, the Broward County elections supervisor looks to have mixed bad provisional ballots with good ones and she is at the center of the controversy in keeping Rick Scott from winning the election and becoming the next senator from Florida. It’s not like Scott has no idea how things work in Florida because his previous job was only as governor of that same state, so he’s aware of the potential of voter fraud in the past and where those attempts might come from. Given her past, Brenda Snipes is certainly a suspect, and given that all the other results are in and hers are not indicates meddling that any honest press would seek to explore. But this modern media is in partnership with the change agent efforts of Democrats so they refuse to cover this story properly even though the evidence is literally being destroyed right in front of our faces—the evidence that Rick Scott won a tight race in Florida against Bill Nelson, the incumbent. Again, there is another senate seat that Democrats just can’t allow strategically to contribute to Trump’s ability to appoint judges and defend previous legislation. After all, what good are any House seats that Democrats gained control of if they can’t do anything with them. So they are in a desperate state to steal those two senate seats, the one in Florida and the one in Arizona using any means possible. Cheating and election fraud are options for Democrats as we have seen before shown to us in the text messages of the F.B.I. agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. If not for those text messages we wouldn’t have known about previous attempts at tampering with elections between the F.B.I. and the Democrat Party because the evidence was either suppressed or destroyed, but thankfully we know enough about the previous election to recognize the patterns of activity that are going on today specifically In Broward County under the supervision of Brenda Snipes.

Of course, the way to commit all these crimes is to insist that everyone maintain a posture of civility. It’s the classic desire of a robber to demand that we put our hands up, lay down our weapons and give them all our money and nobody will be harmed that we are talking about here. We are literally being robbed and we are supposed to keep our hands up, our eyes down, and to put up with it and to shut up. And this has been going on for many, many, many years. It’s been going on for as long as I’ve been an adult. I can report from direct experience with many mayors, many city council members and many, many politicians that this has been the relationship that politicians have had with people for many years and the corruption has been obvious to anyone willing to look at it. But the election of Trump came with it the demand from people like me that we put a stop to it starting at the top and working our way down to little counties in Florida like Broward. It is not acceptable to just take crimes and to be robbed of representation due to voter fraud.

President Trump did what he should have when he fired Sessions as Attorney General. He offered Democrats an olive branch but he knows like the rest of us that they have no intention of taking it and working with his administration to do good things for the country. Democrats have only one plan and that is to conduct themselves as change agents against the American way of life. So they will continue to lie, cheat and steal their way into power, just as they are currently doing in Arizona and Florida and they are going to attempt to destroy Trump from the House of Representatives, which will leave him with no choice but to blast open all their previously uninvestigated corruption cases, so he needs an Attorney General who will do the work. There will be a lot more fighting on the horizon because there are things to fight. Civility will enter American life when respect is given to the republic for which we all stand. But not before. So long as specifically Democrats are willing to break the laws of the country for changes that go against life in our nation which affects us all, then anger and aggression on behalf of Republicans is perfectly justifiable, and expected.

The Shooting in Thousand Oaks, California: Why can’t we all just get along–because liberals don’t want to, they have declared war

In the wake of another mass shooting, this time in Thousand Oaks, California by what people are saying was a mentally deranged 26-year-old Afghanistan war vet leaving over a dozen dead, gun control and civility were cited as the things that people wanted, not just from the people present at the press conference, but across the nation. Why can’t we have gun control? Why can’t we all just come together and get along and heal this divided country? While they were saying it they might as well have asked why monkeys can’t fly like they do in The Wizard of Oz or why blue can’t be red, or green viewed as purple and why couldn’t Elvis still be alive making music—or Michael Jackson for that matter? Why can’t reality be suspended to fulfil our fantasies is essentially what came from the press conference in Thousand Oaks, in the aftermath of the tragedy was a desire to find civility and peace in all these mass shootings so that a solution could be brought forth that allowed people to just dance at a nightclub on a Wednesday night to some country music. Oddly enough, some of the people there were survivors of the country music concert in nearby Las Vegas where another gunman opened fire into a crowd there—of course the motive of the killer was never determined or released. On this shooting the motive was released much quicker, it was mental illness, PTSD and ABC News almost seemed to be reading off a script as they announced it. But not so fast.

As all this was happening Democrats were looking to literally steal the election in Florida from Rick Scott for the senate seat he won there with votes that are appearing out of nowhere. The lady in Georgia is trying to do the same—apparently Oprah wasn’t enough. Tucker Carlson from Fox News had his house attacked by ANTIFA and threats to his life were made. Of course, there have not yet been any arrests even though the protestors were going well beyond free speech. They were violent and implicating a promise of violence. Nancy Pelosi in the newly won Democrat majorities in the House are promising endless investigations of President Trump who has done nothing to be impeached but beat them in an election, which continues to happen. Democrats won the House for only one reason, because many never-Trumpers wanted out of their jobs because they didn’t like the way things were shaping up in the Republican Party, so they retired in most cases, around 38 Republicans and 17 Democrats leaving a lot of open seats coming up in this particular election giving Democrats a slight edge in filling those vacancies. It says more about the Republican Party coming together under Trump than anything the Democrats did. In Atlanta hoping to intimidate voters in voting for the eventual loser Stacy Abrams was members of the New Black Panther Party posing for pictures on social media dressed in military gear and holding guns as if to say, vote for our person or die. And when Donald Trump finally fired Jeff Sessions the day after the election there were protests and endless streams of anxiety from the political left over that, which is well within his right to do.

There is no prospect for peace in America. There are domestic enemies who wish to toss away the Constitution and to change the way that we conduct ourselves in American culture. They do not want to get along, they wish to be agents of change to alter the behavior of American life and so long as that is occurring there will be violence and conflict. The reason that so many people are willing to support Donald Trump in the presidency and why there were gains in the Senate, and very minimal losses in the House due to the Republican retirements specifically, is because people are aware of the new civil war that we are currently under. Big money from those domestic enemies have financed that war effort on a media front and so long as those agitators are functioning and challenging American society there will not be peace, so don’t even indulge in the illusion.

The cries for gun control after the Thousand Oaks shooting are just to disarm good Americans so that the bad ones can run free to do as ANTIFA did at Tucker Carlson’s house, threaten and dominate those standing in opposition to the point of death. It will be interesting to learn more about the shooter, the former Marine who did spend extended time in Afghanistan exposed to Islamic culture. PTSD sounds like an excuse to me, there are surely deeper issues not so neatly summed up. But the bottom line is that occupants of that night club should have been armed. The bouncers in the very least should have been carrying guns. So should the security outside the venue. If people inside had guns, they could have shot back instead of hiding under pool tables and having to jump out of windows just to survive. As it always is, more guns are the answer, not less. And eliminating gun free zones is the way to stop these mass shootings. The shooter was a frequent customer to that establishment and he knew where the guns wouldn’t be, making the entire area a soft target.

Gun control and civility are not even on the radar so long as insurgents are trying to change American culture through dirty tricks and outright threats of violence. When the question is asked, when can we return to more bi-partisanship, when can we all just get along, well the answer is in those who are imposing themselves upon the rest of us with threats of violence, impeachment and law breaking. The threats to peace come from these insurgent Democrats who want single payer health care, illegal aliens, and gun control to change America from a prosperous first world country into some armpit of Europe. It is not an act of violence to stand up for yourself, it’s a right. If there had been people at that nightclub armed in a way to stand up for themselves and not having to wait the short, but deadly time that it took for police to arrive, then the situation would be different.

The change agents looking to turn America from one thing to another have already had quite an impact and most of that started before I was even born fifty years ago. While guns where shown in westerns on television and movies during the golden age of cinema all through the 30s, 40s, and 50s Americans didn’t run around killing each other because we all at least had some shared values about what American society was, and gun ownership protected those values-more as a symbol than a tool. But now carrying a gun and the gun itself has been made out to be a monster by the same radical leftists that want to impeach Donald Trump for nothing more than winning an election. They expect us, “gun supporters” to sit down and shut up while they steal the elections in Florida and Georgia with made up votes pulled out of a few counties known for cheating. And we’re supposed to just shut up and like it. That is the source of the problem, and until that is gone, there will be no peace in America. Because we are at a time of war and it wasn’t Republicans that started it.

The Old Hippie Neil Young and his Pro Communist song “Ohio”: Liberals want to take away guns so they can finish what started in China

I didn’t appreciate it at all when Neil Young resurrected his old hippie song “Ohio” ahead of the November 6th election hoping to influence the Republican “red wave” that was obviously emerging. In an updated video of that old Vietnam protesting diatribe about the “Kent State Massacre” the implication is that the Nixon administration deserved to have college protestors speaking out against the American war effort in Vietnam, and that when the National Guard was called in the quell the protests, the four people who ended up dead and many others one of whom was permanently paralyzed should have never occurred and is part of a larger gun violence problem. Neil Young these days is a fat slob who in the video wondered about on stage in front of a large crowd of degenerates likely high on marijuana smoke and other intoxicants and celebrated that the old hippie managed to come up with a catchy guitar riff about that massacre. For many years the leftists, who are generally all communist sympathizers have used the entertainment industry to sell liberal ideas to the public and Neil Young is certainly one of them. But these days conservatives have someone in Donald Trump who can draw bigger crowds and he doesn’t even need a guitar. Sure, times are changing and the assumption that anybody cares what Neil Young does is negligible. Yet his message is disgusting and deserves to be ripped to shreds for his attempt at political discourse.

Colleges during the two decades leading up to the May, 1970 shooting on the Kent State campus in Northern Ohio had been leaning to the political left that entire time and it was becoming a real problem. American youth were being taught in those places to think like communists and many of them never got over it. They are now a big part of the progressive left and are now running large media companies which has allowed the MSM to wholly be considered leftists organizations and a big part of the anti-Trump movement. For them a lot of what they know started in liberal universities like Kent State. It is disgusting that as Americans we have spent so much money on all these liberal colleges thinking them to be good things for our young people, only to find that they had a number one goal of liberalizing America for the sentiments of globalism. Those intentions clashed on that day in 1970 that Neil Young was singing about in his hippie song.

Even worse, American academia took their influence from Europe, which they never should have done, and decided to sell to their students this utopian idea that guns were not part of any society, and that the use of them by the National Guard in the case of Kent State was part of an authoritarian government that took up arms against its own people. Yet the colleges themselves were stoking the fires of communism in support of the spread of it across the entire Vietnamese peninsula. One of the biggest mistakes the United States ever made in the history of our young country was not to listen to General Claire Chennault at the end of World War II when he warned that the communists moving into China were more of a threat than the Japanese ever were. But nobody listened and communism ended up taking over all of China, and Korea then Vietnam. If communism had been stopped in 1948 in China, many lives would have been saved, but the American left wanted the spread of communism, so it paralyzed the American political system and we ended up with at least two bloody wars over the issue which killed many more people than some protesters at Kent State.

You see, there is always cause and effect. The American universities were guilty of allowing the spread of communism in America by radicals and attempting to hide that activity behind free speech protected under the American Constitution. Liberals have always been acting as Trojan Horses against American capitalism and using the sentiments of rule of law to hide their aggressions. Entertainers working on behalf of the political left soft sold those aggressions with hippie songs like that disgusting “Ohio” that Neil Young put together. And they are still using those same methods this time trying to tap into the leftists love of communism, socialism in pursuit of an anti-gun utopia. Liberals hate guns because it is the gun that has perpetuated American capitalism. Take the gun out of the culture of any society then leftists can have an unimpeded access to the minds of that portion of civilization. Liberals have never been about love, peace and sentiments of passivity, they are about cramming their vision of the world down everyone’s throats and they need everyone defenseless while they did it.

The National Guard panicked on the day of the Kent State Massacre. They should have never fired shots into the crowd. These days the protestors at Kent State were mild compared to some of the losers like ANTIFA that we have now. But back then in 1970 nobody really knew what to do with insurgents functioning on American soil and using the Constitution as a way to undo life in the United States. People should never have to die in protests, but then again, the colleges shouldn’t have been using their student body as soldiers for the spread of communism either, because that’s what America was fighting in Cambodia and Vietnam at that time. That was after spending a very costly war effort against North Korea in the previous decade. The battle was between the different political philosophies, capitalism against communism, and that is essentially what the battle of today is in what many consider a split America. Democrats want communism, they have just changed the name to progressivism, and Republicans generally want capitalism, although until Donald Trump came along, many didn’t really understand capitalism. American universities have left most people lacking a proper understanding of the economic power of capitalism leaving many weak on the subject, and susceptible to catchy songs by liberal artists like Neil Young. We all have an obligation to protect the American Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic and from the point of view from the National Guardsman, that’s what they were doing. The American press, which leaned to the political left because they had been trained at those same liberal universities of course chose to blame the violence on the National Guard.

And that brings us to the point of Neil Young’s updated video to that old song, the implication is that gun violence is out of control, especially in our schools and that if people want to see an end to it, that they need to vote out Pro NRA candidates. And this theme comes from one of the most liberal senators presently functioning who happens to come from Ohio, Sherrod Brown. During the many debates with his challenger Jim Renacci during this campaign season Brown tried to paint Renacci as a pawn of the gun lobby. Well, I am the gun lobby, and so are you dear reader if you are a member of the NRA. Of course, I expect politicians to listen to me from the power position of the NRA. I am part of what makes up that gun lobby through my membership dues and other things that I buy from them to help them fight away the corrosive influence of liberal senators like Sherrod Brown. If Neil Young had his way all of America would be run by liberals like Sherrod Brown and not conservatives like Jim Renacci. And they are so audacious to suggest that they had a big crowd at a Neil Young concert full of old pot smokers and communist sympathizers and think they have a right and obligation to continue making schools gun free zones, when it is the exact opposite for which the solution resides. But Trump gets bigger crowds than Neil Young and that is a real game changer for Republicans. For the first time they have someone who can actually sell conservative ideas back to people who need to hear it leaving old, fat slobs like Neil Young with nothing to do but sit in the forest, in the last house on that street and look at all the animals and redwoods and contemplate that America didn’t listen to their bullshit hippie talk. They voted for a red wave anyway and turned finally away from the communism the liberals have always dreamed of.

Why We are Lucky to be Able to Vote for George Lang: Issue 1, and the pro-crime Democrats

 

There are a number of reasons to vote for George Lang to keep the 52nd House seat that he currently holds in Columbus, Ohio. One of the most obvious is that George has an ambition to make Ohio one of the most business friendly states in the United States which says a lot considering some of the states in America and their relationships with business. George understands that economies are not grown from the middle out, but from the top down. The “middle class” that liberals are always talking about is created by jobs. Without jobs there isn’t anything for a middle class to do. I don’t even like the term “middle class” because it assumes that some people are under other people and that just isn’t the way humans think generally, but in politics it’s an established term that Democrats use to describe people they want to rule over. George Lang is one of the few people I know who truly understands this relationship between people and business, and he is ambitious to allow business development to improve the lives of everyone around them. If it was only for George Lang’s pro-business stance, he would be the best person that you could hope to vote for anywhere in the country on November 6th 2018. I like a lot of people who are up for election this year, but nobody as much as George Lang. However, what really makes George special is his positions on firearm ownership, particularly Ohio’s need to have a stand your ground law.

Currently the way Ohio’s laws of confrontation are written they favor a duty to retreat in hostile situations which greatly favors the ambitions of the malicious. If the intentions of Ohio’s Issue 1 are added under the potential of the Democrat running for governor against Mike DeWine this is very dangerous for individual liberty for all Ohioans. Democrats under Issue 1 want to empty prisons and put criminals back on the streets, and obviously that will lead to more crime for which the people being threatened have a “duty to retreat.” That makes absolutely no sense, but as Ohio law is written now, and under the empowerment of liberalism, from RINO Republicans like John Kasich and extreme liberals like Sherrod Brown Democrats are poised to really make Ohio a dangerous place, due to the intent behind the legislation they support. Like their poor economic theories of growth from the inside out which is completely foolish, Democrats believe that people can and should be reformed instead of separated from those who aspire toward value. The only way to make that relationship work is to bring down the value of everyone so that the criminal and social lunatics can have a seat at the table of society. Issue 1 assumes that the prison represents a value judgment for which Democrats resent, that criminals are a lower class of people as judged by other people. This is the same reason there are liberal “duty to retreat laws.” If you really get down to what a typical Democrat believes about guns and the potential of gun violence it is that using a gun to protect yourself or your property is reprehensible because it denies the desires of other people to share in what you have should they desire it. That is why essentially all Democrats are pro crime candidates, because they desire shared assets in society as opposed to protection of individual rights—in every circumstance.

People who look at my Instagram page, and my many other social media platforms might refer to me as a gun nut, which I am a long way from being. If the news did cover me in a story, they would say that I have an obsession with guns, which from their perspective is a very dirty thing. But truly I see guns as a huge philosophic achievement in the context of human existence. Their invention and implementation on a personal basis have advanced society in tremendous ways and is the essential foundation to everything concerning law and order. Without personal ownership of firearms, America would not be the great country that it is. If you really peel back the layers of American society into what makes it great, it is personal gun ownership. Everything else trickles off that essential foundation, just like the basic economic theories of a pro-growth GDP, from the top down, guns ensure that laws are followed, and that laws are intended to protect personal property—not the property of the state, but the property of the individual.

When we talk about our nation being more divided than ever this is essentially what we are experiencing, the idea of state property and individual property. Democrats want the state to control all property and to issue out fairness whereas Republicans believe in the protection of individual property. That leaves the ambitious to outwork the lazy and some people ultimately own more property than others. Some who don’t want to work for their ownership of property rationalize that as criminals they can steal from others, which deep in their hearts is a very Democrat way of thinking, which is why Issue 1 is supported by extreme liberals like Richard Cordray and why Ohio generally has laws of confrontation that favor a “duty to retreat.”

That is why George Lang is such a great Ohio representative. He understands this basic philosophical premise which most people don’t. He’s not afraid to go into a gun store like the great one in Liberty Township, Ohio–Right 2 Arms (I buy most of my guns from them) and give a statement about his support of “stand your ground laws” which means that gun owners do not have an obligation to retreat in a conflict. It is at the point of implementation the best way to deal with criminal behavior and when criminals are contained, business owners are hungry to expand economic activity. One goes hand in hand with the other. It is not a coincidence that America has more guns in it than people. And it also has the greatest economy in the world with no country even coming in a close second—especially not communist China. When I promote guns in my social media it is not to show a love of power and the ability to inflict death, it is in support of the tool which makes economic expansion happen. Without the gun there would be no order in American society. In places around the world where guns are illegal in every case social behavior is greatly scaled back and the loss of ambition which naturally cascades off that mental aptitude destroys free enterprise and the hope of acquiring wealth through economic expansion and the entire country suffers. I’m thinking of England as I write this.

George Lang understands this complex relationship between personal firearms and business expansion, and as a state representative he will support both. If Ohio can manage to get a real Republican governor there is a real chance at getting “stand your ground laws” implemented in the near future. When gun owners and concealed carry holders do not have an obligation to retreat, criminals lose a great deal of their power and in Ohio, a state that actually is considering Issue 1 where criminals can be released from jail and thrown back into society to fulfil the insanity of Democrat thinking, the basic foundations of gun ownership are all that keep a pro-growth state economy a possibility for the future. That is one of the main reasons that George Lang is one of the best Republicans in the country that anybody could vote for and if you are in the 52nd House District on election day, you are very lucky indeed to have the ability to vote for him.

The World of the Living, and the Dead: Understanding what makes success and failure

I don’t think about it too much because honestly, I just live my life and try to have as much fun with it along the way. But I am also a very talented person, and a smart person so naturally I associate by default with people at all levels of society, and I enjoy it. Yet my entire life, liberal society—the part of our culture that has a certain agenda wrapped in what they call, “progressivism” has attempted to herd me into some place for which they control and I obviously have never cooperated. And their illusions of power have given them the sanctimonious lust to believe that they could edit events in my life in some dominating way. Personally, I may be one of the sanest people alive, and one of the most giving, but to liberal society I am an extreme outlaw as defined by them and that conflict has gone on all of my life, from my years as a little kid to the present, 50 years later. But lately things have been different, even more panicked from that liberal side. Lately liberals have been harassing important people who I know in an attempt to cause them to distance themselves from me in shame, which actually is a direct frustration that they have regarding their lack of power in the upcoming midterms. I understand that and I see many of these antics as the last attempt of a dying party to stay in power so they attack what they believe is the power behind the conservative movement, and they start with people like me who obviously feed a great deal of information and charisma to the base of the philosophy of conservatism. Not everyone needs to have a Fox News television show or a radio show like Rush Limbaugh. Because of all my talents such venues would be too limiting for me, so I do what I do in my own unique way and that’s never going to change, and is part of Making America Great Again. But before they are crushed out of existence I feel it appropriate to explain to them a few errors in their judgment just out of compassion.

The biggest mistake that liberals have made in their entire philosophy is that they believe that all things spring forth by group assimilation. Such as, if the group doesn’t acknowledge that you exist, that you don’t. I’ve never personally cared whether I was acknowledged for something that I do. It’s nice of course and is a show of respect from the recipients, but I’d do the things I do whether 100,000 people witnessed it, or if nobody did. If I were on the face of the moon with nobody around, I would do all the things I do everyday regardless, and that drives liberals crazy. The way that they herd people into various groups for which liberalism desires to control is by this basic assumption that humans need acknowledgment from other humans in order to conduct any behavior. While most people have been taught to respond to these liberal aspects of behavior, instinctively, they desire freedom from such intellectual controls. That is why Donald Trump can go to Florida and pack a 20,000-person arena night after night while Bernie Sanders could barely get 200 in the same venue.

The second is that even among the smartest and achievement-based people we have in American culture liberals want to believe that those people would never be who they were if not for some help in getting there. This is where my name has been brought up quite a lot lately, as the midterms have become closer and people pretty high up in the food chain have actually been threatened to disassociate themselves away from me with the implied fear that their power will be taken away if they don’t comply. But here’s the thing, people don’t make people great. Associating with other people doesn’t make a person powerful. What does is in what people can do for each other. If you are a person who has a lot to offer, people will love you. It doesn’t matter how much Google tries to censor you, it doesn’t matter how many idiots try to protest against your name, it doesn’t matter if the entire press of the city or the nation turns against you and tries to make you sound like some crazy person—but what does matter is if you can do things that other people value. Liberal society does not make or break people as they believe. Success is truly in the eye of the beholder and is clearly in their power to control. Donald Trump certainly understands this notion and he has undercut the mysticism that liberal society has functioned from for many hundreds of years. Trump knows that no matter what people say about you, that if you have something that people desire, they will rush to you even under a barrage of bullets to get to it. So to be successful, liberal society has no control over that and it drives them insane with hate. I learned that trait very early in my life and I knew that it was always a matter of time before someone like a Donald Trump came along to expose that weakness in liberal logic, and much to my joy it is happening now. When we talk about making America great again this essential individual trait is what we are discussing.

A lot of people who knew me many years ago wonder why I’m not working in Hollywood. When I was younger it’s really the only thing I professionally wanted to do. And I did have my stints in that town both as a writer and as a stuntman. Once I learned that Hollywood was really like a giant high school with all the power playing among peer groups that I always hated, I distanced myself from them. They certainly wanted what I had to offer. But I didn’t want what they had. So I went and did my own thing and was successful at other things. People with real talent don’t have to play the games socially that liberals propose. If you are good at things people can’t take that away from you. They can make it more difficult to find an audience but they can’t stop talent.

Ironically this is why the Make America Great Again movement is happening now, in 2018 as opposed to 2008 or 1998 or the year of my birth, 1968. Liberal society made its move against traditional America and they infested Hollywood, the media, academia, just about everything as far back as 1948 to be precise as China was taken over by communism and other global collectivists thought their time to shine had arrived, so they made their moves to herd all members of society into groups of their political design, and Americans being kind people sort of let things go on out of politeness. But once they figured out what was happening they started to take action. Now with the internet and the ability to speak without the censor of an editor of a major magazine or newspaper, people’s true thoughts are coming forward and they have found a voice behind Donald Trump. It’s not that Donald Trump is the leader of this movement, he’s simply the product of it and that’s what liberals just don’t understand. With online chat rooms, Instagram, and Twitter people have a voice that can get out. Of course, those internet companies that host those platforms are regretting the empowerment that they gave to individual voices, this wasn’t how things were supposed to go, but honestly, if they didn’t do it someone else would have.

So back to the original premise, there isn’t any amount of isolation that can be applied to a person like me to stop this process from going forward. By forcing people to distance themselves from me who greatly benefit from my relationship it won’t make me go away. People develop relationships with other people not out of loyalty or even a favor, they do so because of what the other person can do for them, whether it be just friendship or intellectual enrichment. Relationships aren’t determined by liberal society, they are built on individual achievement. A low life slouch will not have a relationship with a productive, loving individual because those two types of people are not compatible. They can’t be brought together artificially through liberal categorization. And neither can a successful person be separated by people who help their success, because it isn’t the rules of liberalism that makes people successful, its individual merit.

A note to those who want to think of me as a “fringe” person, nothing could be further from the truth. The definition of “fringe” again has been attempted to be defined by liberalism in the modern sense and it has failed miserably. Most people think the way I do about most things, which makes me very much the mainstream. What I say and do ultimately are the kinds of things most people find appealing and that is why no matter how much attempt is tossed in the direction to separate me from other people, they will never work because the mainstream sentiment exists between me and them, not liberalism and them. What liberalism is finally learning is much what the character Bruce Willis played in the Sixth Sense learned at the end of that movie, that all along he was dead. The movie wasn’t about him getting back to his loved ones, it was in the little boy helping him realize that he had died. And for liberals, their big moment is coming with the midterms. That is their sixth sense. Separating me from other people won’t change that reality because we are all in the world of the living. Liberalism however is already in the world of the dead. They just don’t know it yet.

The Fate of the 2nd Amendment is Not for Politicians to Decide: Mental health is a function of society and must be established by culture itself

Like a clock of utmost dependability, you could hear the political cries for more gun control after the terrible synagogue shooting in Pittsburg. Liberals and the politically disengaged point to all this gun violence such as the shooting that happened recently at a Kroger in Louisville, or the attack of the innocent at the Fifth Third on Fountain Square and declare that if only we had more gun control that all these problems would go away. Honestly, I’m getting pretty tired of explaining to people who gun control or any alteration of the 2nd Amendment is not on the table, by any member of the political class. I was further enraged recently while attending a debate between Jim Renacci and the very liberal Sherrod Brown at Miami University when the subject of gun control came up that the trend of the talking points was to examine what could be done to identify people of mental health and to determine whether or not they could have guns. My thought at that moment was who determines if someone is “mentally healthy,” the same people who tried to impeach President Trump just because he won the election in 2016, or the same people who have destroyed evidence before turning it over to the F.B.I. or even the same people who lied about international incidents and attempted to create false narratives to hide their own guilt? No, the government is there to represent us and the 2nd Amendment is there to keep politicians in line, they are not our rulers, they are our doers and they don’t decide who is mentally healthy and who isn’t.

A few years ago, there was a guy suing me and we were in court when the judge motioned against him for obvious reasons. This guy was hoping to get a lot of money and his lawyer had led him to believe that his case was easily a slam dunk so this fellow had overly optimistic ideas about his fortune that were torn away from him with the discharge of a judge’s gavel. Hope turned to despair and it could be said that the guy experienced a temporary moment of mental illness. When we were both out of the court room he and his attorney were waiting for me to get to my car and he jumped me in the parking lot and we had a fight. My thoughts at that moment was that I was going to have to kill that guy because he was desperate and I’d never get a good night’s sleep while he was alive. Fortunately for that guy the police were there to break it up and the violence was diminished quickly. If I had killed him out of self-defense I would have lost my rights to the 2nd Amendment, if even for a while as the courts sorted out the case, and that wouldn’t have been fair to me in the very least.

I figured that I needed to do something proactive rather than waiting for that guy to show up at my house wanting to fight again now that he had lost the opportunity to extract a lot of money out of me. My worry was that if the violence happened, as it seemed very clear that it would that I had to do everything possible to show that I had done everything legally possible to mitigate the possibility, so I went to the court to file a restraining order. During the hearing for that they declined the request because as they said to me, it would violate his Constitutional rights to carry a gun and put unnecessary restrictions on his freedom. They determined that our fight at the court-house wasn’t enough to violate his civil liberties. I was fine with their determination and I told them that if violence did erupt that I wanted it noted that I tried to mitigate it through the court system, which they of course honored. I thought the law handled itself well in that case, but it could have easily have gone bad, especially in a more liberal part of the country. Under the proposals created by liberals especially after every mass shooting, I could have lost my rights to own firearms and so could that guy. But the courts allowed cooler heads to prevail and nobody lost such a right and within a few weeks’ sanity was restored to my attacker and everyone lived somewhat happily ever after.

Now guns mean more to me than just personal protection, they are an actual lifestyle choice. They are very much a part of my everyday life, not in the manner of killing people, but for sport. My enjoyment of those recreational activities cannot be infringed by some panicky politician looking for more power every time a lunatic decides to kill a lot of people with a gun. The problem isn’t the gun, it is in the kind of society that produces so much mental health trouble. Mental health a lot of the times is like any other kind of health, it has to be maintained and when it isn’t people fly off the rails like that loser in Pittsburg who shot up that synagogue. Hate and intolerance can’t be nurtured to the point that they drive people insane, that is a responsibility issue. I often say, not joking, that being a Democrat is a form of mental illness. That is because to believe what they do about the benefits of liberalism there has to be some insanity at play because their thoughts are counter to the role of existence itself. By my interpretation should everyone Democrat be forbidden to carry a gun because I say all Democrats are insane? Of course not. And just because I beat the crap out of someone who attacks me in a parking garage who attacked me out of desperation, should I lose my rights to own guns over something I had no part in instigating but was forced to act? Of course not.

Politicians, not a single one of them, have a right to decide whether or not we own guns. The 2nd Amendment is bigger than our entire political system, and the court system that spawns off it. The 2nd Amendment is not to be infringed period. While its true that we live in a world where mental health is historically out of control and more violence is bound to happen as a result, gun control is not a means to controlling it. As a society we have to ride out this storm while focusing on ways to improve mental health going forward. I think that would start by opening doors for ladies again and being polite to fellow members of mankind just because you pass them here and there around town. Basic civility needs to be re-established and that will go a long way to preventing all the violence that is occurring these days. But the real answer to gun violence is to have more guns present not less, to have more people armed to deal with the point of assault quicker, not waiting for the police to arrive. The way to stop mass shootings is to have a good guy with a gun there to stop the threat in seconds, not minutes. It is actually insane to insist on any other method, and until we can all agree on that basic premise, we will take no steps forward in solving the problem.
