China’s President Biden: The timeshare of communism in America

Yes, the speech to congress in late April of 2021 might as well have been written by Karl Marx.  And that is what most of the commentators heard and reported in the wake after.  It was the usual banter back and forth with some lovely comments about Tim Scott’s response.  Tim is a great guy, and yes, he’s a black guy.  I thought the Biden speech was so weak that my dog could have responded to it, so it was kind of a waste of time for Tim to connect him to the same event.  It shows that Republicans missed the entire point of the Biden speech.  Putting a black Republican into that parade of socialism was what they thought was a clever move when in all actuality, it was an endorsement of playing this political fight the way Democrats want it.  No, the truth of the matter wasn’t about the issues or anything positive that Tim Scott might have said to poise Republicans to take back the House and Senate in 2022.  The subtext and intent of the speech were much more sinister and global.  I suffered through the address because I thought I needed to for my political hobby of commentary and advisement.  And I’m glad I did because I wouldn’t have known otherwise that Xi Jinping was such a prominent character in the Biden speech.  Biden spoke about how much time he had spent with Xi over the years and talked up the Chinese communist leader as a very ambitious man and that if we weren’t careful, we were going to lose everything to them. 

Biden was soft-selling communism in the same way that people who sell timeshares get you to buy their product.  They invite you in with the promise of no commitment, except for a little bit of your time.  Then once you’ve slept in their condo, and they’ve treated you to a nice vacation, they insist on a pitch that throws loads of guilt at you, and before you know it, you are signing up for a timeshare.  In this case, Biden said a whole lot that wasn’t obvious unless you understand these kinds of selling games.  Biden threw out a very liberal agenda.  Used Xi as the quintessential example we are chasing after in the world marketplace and that if we did not implement that liberal plan, we would all be working for China soon.  Biden mentioned that we need to add pre-K classes to three-year-old kids and to offer two years of community college after high school, all for free, paid for by increased taxes on the rich and dynamic.  Of course, Biden ignored the fact that our K through 12 education is a joke of liberalism that is harming children, not helping them now.  But the point of this speech was to sell more government education to shape minds into friendly communist subjects for an emerging government. 

But Biden said something else too, something that flew right over the heads of everyone.  He suggested that Xi would often tell him that democracy doesn’t work, that it’s too messy.  The implication is that communism is the way to go; that’s how you can get things done.  Democracy is too slow.  That the secret to success is in pushing things down people’s throats, they’ll thank you later.  Biden, of course, was using Xi as the bad cop where Biden was playing good cop.  Of course, Xi would approve and feed him a nice snack the next time they met on how well Biden did in selling communism without naming the beast to the top of the American government and the nation.  Biden made it sound as if he was willing to give democracy a chance, but that soon we’d have to make a decision; otherwise, China would be kicking our ass economically. So, if Republicans didn’t get on board and unite with Democrats on infrastructure, taxes, health care, open borders, and the Green New Deal, then we would all fall to China in the years to come.  Again, fear of a foreign power calling the shots and adopting socialism to fight communism is essentially the same thing.  Capitalism isn’t even an option to the Biden administration.  Of course, we knew it already, but Biden said it with his example of his admitted friend, Xi Jinping.

Now for anybody who truly understands economics and human empowerment, they know that China isn’t prosperous. I’ve addressed the issue many times here.  China only succeeds by copying the United States and stealing intellectual property.  Communist cultures destroy individual creativity and therefore ruin businesses.  The only way they can achieve this is by luring American companies to their economy and selling Americans things at a cheaper rate than buying American typically does.  Biden also addressed that issue by advocating that American’s “buy American” but then promoted that unions regain their power to take over the management of businesses, which are all socialist and communist in their intentions.  Labor unions are not pro-American groups.  They are international for a reason: to protect workers while selling to them the concept of socialism, which then ruins our culture from the inside out.  Either way, Biden plans to hand America over to Xi Jinping by making it look like it’s for our good without telling anybody that China is helpless without the United States.

The real answers are, of course, more free-market enterprise.  Less government school and more school of hard knocks.  In buying American with those American companies being dedicated to the United States and not global conglomerates like Coka Cola, which is operated out of London these days, just a few blocks away from the grave of Karl Marx.  And why would corporations still support Biden with his proposed tax hikes on the rich?  Well, it’s to get into new markets; they want access to the markets of over a billion people in China.  So to play ball in that game, they must adopt communism and China’s way of doing business.  China put Biden on that stage that night, and he spoke as their representative.  He certainly didn’t represent America.  Biden said that if Republicans fought him too much on his policies that we’d have no choice but to turn to communism to survive as a country. It’s the same trick that these politicians have pulled on the global corporations. The sales pitch is that there are only 300 million people in America.  There are over a billion in China.  Which market is more valuable to you, Mr. and Mrs. Corporation?  The Chinese never tell those corporations or our government about our partnership because there is always a catch, just like the timeshare salespeople.  You might have access to those billion people, but they don’t have any money to buy those products.  But by the time that these global corporations learn the hard truth, they have sold their souls to communism by then.  And the paid-off politicians, like the Biden family, are in on the game.  They work against America every day and sell the switch to communism through speeches like the one we heard from Biden.  That is what the speech was about; it was a warning to cooperate with the radical Democrats or be destroyed.  Because China is looming, and they are the ones in control.

Its Good to be a Counter-Revolutionary: Every age has its own fight to conduct

I know it’s not convenient.  I understand that most people want to live their lives by the rules of their American citizenship and to be left alone.  But, every generation has its challenges, there are always enemies out there looking to act on their own accord, and when you live in the best country on the face of planet earth, there will be attacks that whoever must defend is in the care of the day.  In the future, it might be those generations.  In the past, it was others.  And now, we have a task, and we cannot ignore it.  We have among us in America, intense revolutionaries who want to undo all of us and force us to obey them.  They come from all over the place; some are very wealthy, some are dirt poor broke, but they all hate America and want to undo it.  Our first task is to admit that to ourselves.

All of us are not pro-American supporters.  Some of our neighbors and friends are these revolutionaries.  Go to your local school board meeting, and you will see lots of enemies. These people are revolutionaries who actively work through education to destroy our children’s minds and destroy America from within.  Go to a poor neighborhood hampered by Democrat policies, and you will see attacks against our legal system to bring down our American system of constitutional law.  Look at our corporations, even the Coke that we buy at McDonald’s.  You will see global interests seeking a stable communist political environment to spread their brand to every corner of the world, who want to destroy American sovereignty to unleash their growth toward those markets, working as enemies against us all.  They are all revolutionaries who wish to revolt against American sovereignty, and they are willing to commit treason to unleash it, which of course, provokes a response from us. 

In the video above, I proposed embracing the counter-revolutionary role that sounds radical and even militant to many ordinary people.  But it is our task in this time and place to do so.  We are under attack and have been for a long time.  American massive growth and GDP hid it, and many of those named forces remained in a somewhat docile state.  It all came undone openly for the first time in our lives when the assassination of JFK occurred.  In a brief history of what went wrong, dueling was common in our founding fathers’ day, in the start of America as an idea.  Dueling was needed to protect the value of the name and reputation of the individuals involved.  Slowly dueling emerged into gunfighting in the age of Western Expansion.  Not so honorable, usually provoked in a drunken rage, but the intent was the same, to protect the reputation of individuals.  As the age of progressivism seeped in, and central government began taking control more and more every decade after that, up until the period of WWII, the killing of other people migrated from a very personal experience with gunfighting to the actions of the mob, where assassinations occurred blindly, and from a safe distance.  This took the courage out of combat and unsettled people’s minds in a new way.  When the KGB worked with American intelligence to get rid of a common rival, and a threat to the various city mobs all over America, JFK was a rich target, and the killing of him unleashed an attack on America through the revolutionaries that followed in the 60s right up to the present.

This is important because these actions created radicals of all kinds to act violently from the protection of a mob.  Fights between factions used to be settled face to face, with the antagonists being forced to take responsibility for their actions in the light of day.   This new kind of killer came from a blob of ideology and has eroded our country ever since, which has been entirely by design.  The enemies of America knew what they were doing.  First, it was the various city mobs that started the fall, which ironically became the leaders of the Democratic Party (Saul Alinsky, Hillary Clinton). It migrated to the KGB of Russia.  Today, China has bought up massive amounts of influence in American media, sent honeypot spies into the beds of many politicians to compromise them and steer favorable legislation toward communist causes and manipulate currency to collapse the influence of the American dollar.  Most of these things happen over such an extended period and on such a vast scale with so many people involved that everyday people don’t see it or refuse to see it because acknowledging it would mean they’d have to take responsibility for the action.  Yet there it is, and it’s on our doorstep today as a result and demands that strong people face them down in opposition. 

That is where my suggestion of becoming a counter-revolutionary comes from.  It is a term you should embrace.  It’s not an act of terror to insist that we return our nation to a foundation of constitutional law instead of accepting the chaos of a change state toward communism, which is precisely what is happening.  Being a counter-revolutionary is an honorable thing when revolutionaries have indicated openly that they mean to ruin your lives at any cost and that they dare you to meet them on the battlefield for a fight.  They have issued the dare.  Unfortunately, we have been taught in our public schools that we are supposed to walk away from fights, not participate in them for the last century.  Our legal system has punished the second act in a conflict, not the first.  Prosecutors are going after those that respond to violence, not those who issue it.  So we are gun-shy and have been for way too long.  We have sat by and watched other people speak for us at school board meetings.  We have allowed good people to be punished just because they don’t fit into a woke culture intent on undoing our country.  We were, after all, too busy taking our kids to soccer practice.  We didn’t want the responsibility for action, so the revolutionaries of our culture felt entitled to attack and unleash their will upon us, expecting an easy go of destroying all of us. 

As human beings in this particular age, we must defend America from its attackers in the media, from insurgents in the streets, and those compromised within our elected offices.  Failure to meet that challenge will leave history to consider us the losers who let it all slip away to the parasites of sociology.  To the revolutionaries who hated us because they weren’t us or were too stupid to join us and take our lessons and improve their lives accordingly, revolutionary intentions cannot be accepted.  But make no mistake about it, they meant to end us all, and we should not back down from being a counter to their intentions.  There is nothing radical about that.  It is patriotic and honorable to stand against revolutionaries who intend ill will and malice robbing all future generations of the opportunity to be Americans.  It’s not enough to light fireworks on the Fourth of July and celebrate what others have done to make American Great.  It’s time for us to do it all over again in a way specific to our times.

Corporations Attacking America: Taking back our country from unelected insurgents of malice

How to Defeat Corporate Control of our Government

I started out writing my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, with the simple intention of helping businesspeople reach beyond the current limits of those studies to become better and more productive in both their personal and employers’ lives.  Setting the book’s contents in a period before the progressive era, where many of our modern problems started, allows for a fresh look at complicated issues that hold many people back in all aspects of their lives.  That for me was fine; if the book accomplished those things, I would have been happy.  However, during the editorial process, people reviewing the book before the publication have noted that it is very much a book that could disassemble world governments and the corporate influence over them.  This is something we have talked about for many years, especially in conspiracy circles.  But after the 2020 election, there is no doubt that many global corporations, such as Google, Apple, Facebook, and even the NBA, no longer view American citizenship as a value.  They have joined the revolution to overthrow American ideas and to refocus the human race toward global citizenry, to step beyond the Constitution, the National Anthem, and all things that are red, white, and blue.  And that there was a means in my book to undo all that.  Well, I would be lying if I said that came as a surprise to me. I’m always thinking about those types of things, so when writing a book about psychology and strategy, it would become apparent that such tools could be used on a micro and macro level.  It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if readers of my new book did use it as a counter-revolutionary device to undo this anti-American revolution conducted by these large corporations.  An eye for an eye is no problem with me.  In fact, in the way I see things, an eye for a head is even better.

It’s well beyond time now to see the situation for what it is.  Corporations have joined together to undercut a government that belongs to the people, to all of us.  This isn’t a surprise to me, but it is a reality we must deal with.  We don’t elect corporate representatives; they impose themselves on us for their reasons. Suppose they support communism and socialism; it’s for their good, not ours.  And suppose they fan the flames of insurrection from revolutionaries who would seem to be against them and everything they stand for. In that case, the Amazons’ strategy is to kill off competition who cannot withstand the vigor.  It is war; it’s a war against every one of us. Its war against rivals in business.  Its war against the governments of the world mired in chaos and stagnation.  The subject of my new book, and it’s all covered in the glory of villainy, unleashed in raw form for heroics to clash with and destroy to correct malice.  But before we can do anything like that, we have to identify the villains and show them justice for their actions of insurrection. 

The way the big companies plan to divert their insurgents into collapsing all competition which is how Amazon is doing it, is to appease the radical political elements of our day and to play them against those opposed.  They show support for liberal causes, such as the Green New Deal, which will crush smaller companies with compliance costs.  In that way, Amazon protects itself from new-age competition, calls off the dogs in any legislature from forced mandates and unneeded rules, and then stuffs money in the pockets of the lackluster politicians. They need their war chests filled by donors.  It’s not the nations of the world we must be concerned with; it’s the corporations that have taken those governments over.  This falls right in line with the contents of my book, ironically. If you are going to reform businesses from liberal activism, we all count on expanding our economy. The same strategies would undo the corruptive influence that corporations have on our governments, and thus, all our lives.   

Oh, if there is one thing I do love in the world, it’s corporations and the creations that come from wealth and influence.  I have no problem with corporations and wealth creation at all; in fact, I’d like to see a lot more of it.  But, and this is a big “but” I do not want them ruling our world.  Free market opportunities can lead, but I’m not too fond of the board of directors at Amazon or Apple deciding how we govern our nations to protect themselves from changes to their industrious efforts.  I am not anti-corporation, far from it.  And I make that clear in my book as well.  I want all companies and corporations to do better.  But they are not allowed to rule our lives as they plan to.  Ironically, many of these questions were asked and answered during the period of Westward Expansion.  In the age of the gunfighters so we know what to do and how to do it.  We lack the understanding to recognize the need for action, which then requires us to look at a period when we did know.  Before we can fight this war, people individually need to prop themselves up with some contextual history about how one individual can have a massive impact on the world.  That the collectivism that has been taught over the last 150 years has intentionally misled with aggressive ways of war to undo our Republic by many jealous factions everywhere in the world. 

I’ve been thinking about this topic for years, but it was only after the election of 2020 that I contacted my publisher and told them what I wanted to do with the book.  We put it on the fast track, and it will be out later this summer.  So, in a lot of ways, I felt that now was the time to have this discussion, and it’s better to give people a way to solve the problem than simply saying to the world that we see the problem, but are unable to do anything about it.  Solutions with identification are always good.  But it’s not just me seeing that there is a need to unravel the political power that corporations now have in the world and what historical need there is to undo that power.  We all have a role to play, but I think what many people do need is a map of how to do it.  And that’s what the Gunfighter’s Guide is ultimately going to provide.  Suppose Lean Manufacturing can help a company solve problems and get to a root cause analysis. In that case, the Gunfighter’s Guide will help people understand the psychology behind those root causes and allow for solutions at that enterprise level. All these corporations hide their malicious intent for global domination.  Whether it’s a dusty street in 1870, or a modern metropolis full of blue state governors and mayors, the villains always hide just outside of town and spread their terror indirectly from the shadows.  And it is there that we must root them out into the light of day to separate corporations from our government and to restore to our Republic our control over our nation.  If corporations want to do business with us, they better learn that it is us they serve.  Not the other way around.

Judy Mikovits and Plandemic: They want you to think its a conspiracy, but in truth, its all too real

To understand all the controversy regarding the anger surrounding the doctor Judy Mikovits just look at Dr. Doom himself, the well-known Dr. Fauci and in context it will all be clear. Mikovits is the conspiracy theory advocate that Google has a personal war with because what she is saying goes against their strategy of contact tracing every human being on earth, much the way their Google Maps works by casting a GPS chart wherever you are anywhere at any time, even in the most remote part of the world. Free-will is not conducive to their objectives so they have put out a well-documented smear campaign against Mikovits for daring to question the recent outbreak of Covid-19. There is a very controversial documentary that is constantly being removed from YouTube and every other social media platform.  Below is a guy talking about it, in a negative way, which are the only videos not being banned.  Michelle Malkin also has a great interview that is very much worth watching.  Its right now the most banned video in the world, and that should tell you something.  Even the website PandamicMovie.com has been shut down.  I don’t see anything controversial about any of the information, and Mikovits herself is a pretty smart lady.

I’ve read both her books, one called ‘Plague: One Scientists Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)’ and the other, which is new and very hard to get, ‘Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science (Children’s Health Defense.)’ I read Plague well before the Covid-19 virus, a few years ago, and it made sense to me. That’s part of the reason I saw Covid-19 coming out of China as a weapon of Marxism rather than any real threat of death from the outset. If you know what’s going on, it’s not a surprise or a conspiracy theory. And that’s why the organizations pushing Covid-19 danger hate Judy Mikovits and have tried to paint her as a tin-hatted conspiracy theorist when in reality she is simply a fallen angel who used to be one of “them” but fell from asking too many questions. Judy is a disgruntled employee, not a conspiracy advocate, in spite of what “they” want you to believe.  And the story she has to tell is a very good one.

Like most professions the medical profession, especially at the level Dr. Fauci operates is all about getting funding for research. Understandably, some of that research works, some of it doesn’t and even the best vaccines with the intent of immunology goes bad. It might fix the targeted ailment, but the side effects might cause permanent cell restructuring and lead to even deadlier diseases—like autism, ME/CFS—or many other things. It’s not that the medical community shouldn’t keep trying new medicines in the lab with an intent toward human conquest of all diseases, but the path to Hell is paved with good intentions and by default a lot of patients do end up in Hell far worse off than if they had never sought out a doctor’s help at all. That was the point of Judy Mikovits’ books. She’s certainly not anti-science, quite the opposite. But her problem is in the process itself, of the medical industry as a whole, and the culture that springs forth.

People tend to think of Doctors as highly educated people who are beyond fail, and people put their blind trust in them, to a fault. In reality, they are just as bad as anybody else in society, and the higher up you go in the food chain the worse. Such as Doctor Fauci, who has a tendency as a used car salesman for selling pandemics to society starting way back in the 1980s with HIV. Fauci may not be a good doctor, what he is good at is scaring the hell out of people with big words, which then tricks politicians into funding his projects. In the medical community other doctors suck up to Fauci because he is a means of bringing money to their projects. Fauci is a salesman and that’s about it, and Covid-19 was never about danger, it was about selling a New World Order. For Fauci that was to bring in money to scientific research which taken by itself might be a noble endeavor. But for all the boot-lickers off Fauci’s efforts, such as Google’s need for contact tracing all diseases, or Facebook’s need to sell itself as an official government censor of propaganda, or communist China’s desire to spread their power and influence to every corner of the world, the salesman of the whole effort fell on Doctor Doom and it was all about money for him. Not for his projects, but to be that rockstar at the dinner parties from everyone who did get the money. Doctor Fauci is in love with the celebrity of being that kind of doctor and its not a conspiracy theory for Judy Mikovits to point that out.

But “they” certainly don’t want you to know what’s behind the curtain dear reader, because once you find out that they really have no idea what they are doing and that most of the science we are talking about is still in its infancy, you’ll stop trusting them and that will really hurt their funding. If it becomes politically liable to take controversial positions, then politicians won’t fund some of the science that people under Fauci’s control want to conduct. And that is clear in both of Mikovits’ books, especially Plague, the first one. Reading that book you could easily see how dangerous all the assumptions of Covid-19 were. They don’t know what they are doing, they certainly have no idea if social distancing would have any impact, or wearing masks in public—or any of the measures they’ve suggested. They are just playing in a lab with viruses with often good intentions but their alignment with politics makes them dangerous, because it is there that they get their funding. So doctors often do whatever they need to so to make a political class happy. And the political class they were trying to impress was that coming out of communist China. Bill Gates has a big check book and they are willing to do whatever to impress him to continue funding for their projects. And that of course has led to the global disaster we are seeing now.

I sometimes forget that people don’t read much anymore and just take whatever they hear on television or through Google searches for their information. I would recommend reading Judy Mikovits’ books. The second one, Plague of Corruption is very hard to get, its constantly sold out these days. Lots of people are reading it which is bad news for the government censors. People get it and that’s exactly why we have a First Amendment in the United States, even if Google, Facebook, and the government itself wants to get rid of it so they can hide their vile plans from us. But the info is out there and people are getting angrier by the week. When I read the books, my thought was that I know a lot of people like Judy Mikovits. If you can overlook the obvious hurt she has of being cast out of the medical community for just asking the right questions, you’ll learn a lot about the medical industry in general, which is just as screwed up if not more so than every other industry. When dumb people are in charge, this is what happens, and when good people are cast out, you get people like Judy Mikovits. But take comfort in this, she is not a conspiracy theorist. Rather, she was and is a front-line reporter who knows how we got where we are presently, and voters need to understand it so they can change it, for the better. Don’t trust what “they” tell you, read it for yourself and use your mind to solve the problems independently.

The Deadly Virus was Never Covid-19, it was Marxism: How your local politician got suckered into being a host

The thing to know about viruses is that they migrate into our bodies by tricking or overwhelming our immune systems and gaining control of our normally healthy functions. All viral attacks are a kind of war for control of our bodies, and we count on our immune systems to fight them off. However, with deadly viruses such as HIV, they gain access to our bodies by tricking our immune systems to stand down and not engage the enemy. In retroviruses of many kinds, they attack healthy cells and actually reprogram our DNA into mutations of sick cell structure which can then lead to incurable illnesses. So it should come as no surprise that socialists and Marxist revolutionaries within the communist Chinese government and their partners in the World Health Organization would seek to duplicate viral outbreaks on a social scale and to attack each and every person in the world in the same manner, with viral ideas that attack our sociology in the same way that HIV does healthy immune systems. When doctors study these things obviously it would occur to them in order to protect their own concerns for constant government funding for their projects that a sociological viral attack would benefit them greatly and change society to what they think is a more healthy Marxist ideology which from their point of view would be better. Its not therefore surprising that the term conspiracy theory is applied to this current crises, because the strategy falls outside normal human concerns, but taken in a wide view are quite clear, and it is in that understanding that all the politicians who were tricked into lockdowns, social distancing, and face mask application to the controls of public health realize they are guilty of economic destruction and are looking to now cover their ass from the biggest folly in the history of the world.

The purpose of social distancing and why we can’t plan for sporting events, and all this nonsense about wearing face masks in public even though there isn’t a doctor in the entire world who can point to scientific proof that any of it does any good to protect anybody from Covid-19 spreading is because the virus we are dealing with was not a cell structure virus that attacks our immune systems, the viral outbreak was psychological with an intent to destroy the immune system at the sociological level. The attack was meant to attack all politicians and their need to protect their constituents with a perceived safety just as the HIV virus tricks immune systems from attacking them upon introduction into a human body. This virus spread because people tend to trust doctors and politicians as elected leaders and both were joining forces under a rebellious president in Trump to tell us that shutting down our economy was the way to fight this thing with our American flags flying in the wind. Many of us were tricked and the virus of thought spread through our society and has presented us now with an economy that is on life support living only off printed money and borrowed time.

That’s how we got here, but here’s the current problem, all these politicians have to admit that what they did was wrong and that they were suckered with the whole Covid-19 response, if we really want to cure ourselves from this Marxist attack through viral pressure, we have to admit how the trick occurred. But what they are doing and are forced to do by this Marxist strategy is to play along and validate the efforts since they are all now personally responsible for so much destruction to our economy. The vast unemployment, and the torrential debt is well beyond their scope of dealing with it, and the only way they see out is to play along with the stupid social distancing voodoo science and encourage people to wear masks in public. If they suddenly say, well, everyone can go back to work, go back to their sports, restaurants and bars—schools, everything—false alarm, then the blame for everything will fall squarly on them and they’ll lose future elections, and likely be sued for the rest of their lives. At a minimum the courts are going to be stacked against them constitutionally for many decades to come. It’s a nasty problem and their only way out is to convince the people that it was all worth while by following through with the nonsense.

By social distancing and wearing the stupid masks you are protecting the dumb people who were tricked by this social virus of Marxism into the spread which is currently destroying the entire world. They were tricked into letting this viral outbreak of sociology in, and the damage is so great none of them can withstand the scrutiny once people have to face the facts, that the virus was never Covid-19 that was so deadly, it was the ideas of Marxism that were sold under that mask, just like any deadly virus tricks immune systems into destroying themselves to allow a new host to flourish. It’s not such a far-reaching conspiracy once you understand the players. Every member of the medical profession will admit that their biggest stress in life is funding. Well, Dr. Fauci and the lunatic Amy Acton of Ohio used Covid-19 to become heroes in their circles of influence to solve that very problem. As government employees, its no skin off their back and now at dinner parties, they will be the celebration of the medical community for the rest of their lives for bringing funding to everyone in their wake. But don’t think for a second that the communists of the World Health Organization working with China didn’t get the idea for all this by studying how viruses break into healthy bodies and take over. They certainly did, and they applied it not medically, but sociologically. A virus of biology isn’t any different from a virus of thought, and people don’t typically define ideas that way, so the perils are invisible to them. But the results are the same.

Each time you put on a face mask or adhere to the voodoo science of social distancing, you are playing into the massive failure of the stupid people who allowed that virus of Marxist thought to penetrate our society and ruin our lives. It is because of them that we went from a healthy society to a sick one and the cure from the World Health Organization and all these maniacs who are pushing the idea of the global citizen movement and mandatory vaccines are the ones who propose the cure to the problems they created. A sick patient is much more likely to listen to a doomsday scenario if they are cleaving for life, instead of being healthy—so the Marxists intentionally made us all sick by wrecking our economy to change our behavior. They tricked our politicians into playing along to avoid the egg that is on all their faces and they were able to get our academic doctors to play along because it solved their funding problem. Doctors don’t care if we have a capitalist society or a communist one. Most of them would probably lean to a communist one because they think it will keep them from hustling for funding all the time. And that is how we ended up here and why you can’t stand next to someone and why they make you feel as if you have to wear a mask everywhere. Its not that doing social distancing, lockdowns and masks help stop the spread of Covid-19, we have enough real science to indicate that it doesn’t help at all. But what it does do is keep us from marching on our capitals with pitch forks and guns to take our country back from these idiots who caused this mess. So long as we wear the masks and social distance, the politicians who were conned by these viruses of thought get a free pass because it tells us that we believe their story—Covid-19 was really dangerous and justified destroying our economy to save lives. But the truth is, it didn’t. It killed many more than it saved and allowed China to get revenge on the United States for electing Trump and hitting them with that trade deal that changed the world. And that’s why this virus outbreak is really World War III but instead of the casualties being hit with gunfire to die or recover in the hospitals, it was a virus of thinking that convinced us to turn against ourselves and destroy our society, just like the HIV virus takes over a human host. But the virus wasn’t Covid-19, it was Marxism.

Become a Millionaire Overnight: Coronavirus deaths in China are much less than 1%, so why the panic?

You have to understand dear reader that goal of the CDC and other agencies warning about the spread of the coronavirus to the United States is to create an artificial fear that will disrupt the economy, to not only incite a short term hit to the stock market, but to produce a bad quarterly economic report around the time that the Democrat convention is about to announce its nominee. If the FBI was in on a scandal to overthrow the 2016 election working with the DNC to do so, then the CDC is up to the same kind of activism in hopes to cause poor economic news that might torpedo President Trump’s election in the upcoming fall. However, like all the attempts as before, the Russian hoax, the fake impeachment which went nowhere, the liberal establishment is using fear to attempt to capitalize off China’s fake news attempt in a similar fashion, to cover-up their poor economic performance after the Trump trade war. They hope that if the news can cover up the economic story in China, then perhaps it might incite people in America into a panic that might hurt Trump. But its more fake news, because the real value of the Dow is now over 29,000. If I were you, I would buy up some stock for those companies today, within the hour because when these kinds of things happen, its time to profit off the chaos, and to turn it around on the perpetrators.

Oh, don’t be naive and toss this news to the pile of conspiracy theories that are floating around out there. For anybody who has been to a Thanksgiving dinner full of deceitful family members pretending to like each other for the sake of the ritual knows to what level every single human being alive is capable of compunction and if profit for them is spelled out clearly, they will utilize it. For many such people employed at the CDC, the FBI, or the DNC, such compunction is obvious, and easy. They are motivated to stop President Trump by any means necessary, and if they have to try to scare people away from voting for him by taking away his greatest triumph, the economy, then they will do it with the fear of death and not think twice about it. Never underestimate the levels of evil that people will undertake to achieve something deceitful, and it is they who will be the first to call such a suggestion, a conspiracy theory. If you know people, you know that they are perfectly capable of such a malicious attempt, even if it causes trillions of dollars of temporary losses at the stock market. I would say to those thinking of what to do with their own investments, push it all in and make yourself a millionaire. The recovery will be back to pushing at 30,000 within a month.

A good indicator of such ability at market manipulation is from the primary opponents to Donald Trump who are fellow billionaires, two of them from New York, George Soros, Tom Steyer, and Mini Mike himself, the former mayor of New York, Bloomberg of Bloomberg media. Pouring a little of their money into the media system is a good way to trigger selloffs, they know how that game is played because that’s how they got rich in the first place, buying low and selling high. They know how to drive down a stock price and two of those people are running for president against Trump right now. In the United States the coronavirus isn’t much more dangerous than the common cold, more people are dying of the common cold presently than this new Chinese contraption. The virus feeds off people living in third world conditions and let’s face it, most of China is. It will not be a problem in the United States, where every part of the country has access to first world resources.

But don’t expect the money of Bloomberg, Steyer, and Soros to let the public know that. Mini Mike knows the only way he has a remote chance at beating President Trump in a fair election is if he can take down the great Trump economy, and that is what this coronavirus nonsense is all about. Likely, there are many other sources of revenue pouring into the media through ghostly sources, but if you trace the money beyond the tributaries, those three names will likely be at the head of it, but committed in a way that does not directly tie them to the panic. This panic is just more fake news, it was that way in China and it is even more that way in the United States. Presently the number of deaths from coronavirus is 2,362. Does anybody know what that is in percentage of China’s total population? Its not even 1% of the population. There are more people likely being killed each day from a hammer falling off the top of a house than are dying from this disease, so the reporting of it is meant to be misleading and to instill panic. Even more likely, there are many more people dying in China from elements of a common cold that go unreported as usual because statistically, the numbers are so small. And proportionally, the same story could be told in South Korea and Iran where more of these stories about the coronavirus are spreading. The story is a hoax. The disease might be real, but the impact it is projected to have on the world is.

But to accept that we must accept that we have so little faith in organizations like the CDC that is always looking for a handout for more government money, that this is an advertising blitz for them to get more congressional approvals for their work. Nothing like a deadly disease prevention action to jack up their funding levels, and to help harm the chances that a declining economy might hurt Trump from being re-elected. We must accept that people can be this cruel, that they would wreck fortunes and destroy lives for political motivations if those motivations serviced their desires. Even Sam Donaldson is taking a check from Mini Mike, imagine all the media outlets who are starving for some of that Mini Mike money in ads. A deadly virus outbreak is even better especially if it helps the guy that is pouring so much money through advertisements that they’d like to see continue coming. If only they could help get Bloomberg over 15%, maybe he’ll continue wasting his money?

Yes, people who are behind spreading this virus killer news think you are stupid and overly emotional, and they are trying to capitalize off your fears. Just like the left does with school levies, with Social Security—practically anything that Democrats have their name on, fear is their driving force. And because China started this rumor of a mass coronavirus outbreak several money movers jealous of Trump in the United States are piggy backing off it to attempt to drive down the stock market and hurt the great economic news that has so far been a part of Trump’s entire term. It’s the only chance they have left in the tank before the election, and, thinking the way that these guys do, it’s a chance for them to get even richer off the panic. And that is why dear reader, they think you are a sucker, a fool, and a loser who might switch your vote to them.

But wait, you still doubt what I’m saying to you? Well, think about this, usually when the media reports that there is trouble in the stock market, they always speculate as to the cause, but the evidence is always vague. However, in this case, most of the media outlets over the last couple of days, even reporting the issue before the markets even opened planted the seeds to the virus being the driver with great certainty. And that is what we all call old fashioned misdirection and an attempt to shape public opinion to enact a cause and desired political effect.

America Should Support the Rebels of Hong Kong: The need to break the back of communism in China, for good

One of the saddest events I think in history was when in 1949, the communists took over China and brought tyranny of the highest order to that country and its people after America worked so hard to prevent it. I read with great horror the specifics in Joseph Campbell’s Oriental Mythology the hard reported events of that communist take over and also read in the great book Way of the Fighter by my favorite military general, Claire Lee Chennault the warnings of the communist take over that would eventually lead to the Korean and Vietnam Wars—and the long cold war we are currently experiencing. With an educated opinion on the matter provided by these books and many others, I am convinced that the same types of people who are in the American government going after Donald Trump’s presidency are the same ones who pushed presidents then like Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower into allowing communism to seep into Asia and to use it as a platform for global domination, and it pisses me off something awful. It always has, but now in the context of the protestors in Hong Kong, a proper context within history is clear for all to see.

It is my position, which requires all Americans to take one, that America support the rebels in China once the election of 2020 has concluded, because it would be the right thing to do. China, as a communist state has been a threat from day one, and it has only been recently that the cracks in their carefully crafted façade have been broken. There are of course agents around the world, many sitting on the boards of some of American’s greatest corporations who are indifferent to communism. Most corporations have their fair share of socialist sentiments, so its not a far stretch for them anyway. But that doesn’t make it right and never has. The people of Hong Kong want to be free. They are looking toward America for guidance. Their black market is giving them exposure to American concepts and products and they need support for their own freedom. And the least we can do is to back them as a continued stab at communism as we have endeavored for most of the last century. Why stop now?

While its quite obvious that pro communist forces in the American government didn’t want Claire Chennault to be successful in protecting China from the communist invasion coming out of the Soviet Union. They only wanted to protect China from the Japanese. Once it was clear that American forces were going to be successful against Japan, Chennault had his hands tied behind his back by General Stilwell who was put in place after the famous Flying Tigers had done their deeds of protecting China in the opening days of American involvement in World War II. Any careful scholar comparing these days to those days will see clearly that the point of World War II, and of propping up Hitler and so many other ruthless dictators around the world was to create a power vacuum for which the United Nations would fill, and communism was going to be their mode of government. It didn’t work of course, and the seeds of that intention lasted for the rest of the 20th century, even into the present. A few years ago, these things would have been considered conspiracy theories, but by the evidence we have about the attempted Trump impeachment proceedings we now have evidence as to how the deep state has always worked, and why they believed the things they have. Communism in China was always going to be the way the rest of the world came to that political ideology, and our American corporations like Google, Nike, and the NBA were going to deliver us all to that doorstep. That was always the intention.

You could see it even in small, normally unrecognized issues in entertainment where production companies were weary of pissing off the communists of Chinese censor boards who are careful not to allow western influences into their country by way of film. That left giant companies like Disney trying to have it both ways, to get their products into the Chinese market of over a billion people while still putting on their happy face of branding. In the movie Kong: Skull Island, the pandering toward communism was too obvious, and American audiences hated it. The film didn’t do well, just as the obvious communist sentiment from Godzilla: King of the Monsters didn’t do well either intending Asian markets to love the film while still pandering to western audiences. The result wasn’t very good. Production companies have been chasing a ghost in China, the black market is far more reaching than the traditional theater presentations. There is more money to be made in China through the black market than in the communist endorsed primaries, which is what is fueling this rebellion in Hong Kong. For the purpose of defeating communism, America should support that greater rebellion into the mainland for the sake of those plus billion people, and break communism once and for all.

Silently, most of the big American corporations have been steering consumers toward communism so that they could have access to that large market in China. But what they have been willing to give up in freedoms and intellectual property to get a boost to quarterly results have been devastating, especially when you measure the results in decades instead of years. You can see the results everywhere as corporations have agreed to make a compliant society where China has set the rules for their own benefit, to gain knowledge they couldn’t produce in their society under communism by robbing creativity from the western cultures. You can see from any Chinese knock off that they lack imagination which only thrives under a free culture. The compliance culture that so much impead American business these days and has been bolstered by the communist loving academia culture in the west that has already been conquered by the Chinese long ago, have further pushed business into compliance toward the communists of Asia. Where else would they go, the plan was always to limit their options so that China could benefit with their sheer size of population. The gig worked until President Trump turned everything on its head, and now the people of Hong Kong see their chance to make a move, or never at all.

America is responsible for the people of Hong Kong, not just through the western influences that have found their way to the black markets and into the homes of many people looking for hope, but for our abandonment of China when the communists took over in the first place. Many of our own people contributed to that evil and its time to reverse the decision in favor of justice. So it would not be unreasonable to stand behind the rebellion now, once the election is done of course. China is not good as it is now, and communism is an ever-present threat to capitalism, which requires diligence on our part to defeat it from both foreign and domestic enemies. And make no mistake about it, they are our enemies.

The 1977 Act of Emergency Economic Powers: Ending communism once and for all

Not that its any kind of surprise, but it is important to note, Democrats do wish harm on you and me so they can have a hope of beating Donald Trump in the next election coming in 2020. They’ve tried everything, the Russian hoax, the constant name calling and belittling of his entire family, and openly mocking everything he has done over the last three years as President of the United States. Now their last and only hope is to harm the economy because its all they have left. Everyone knows that Trump is going to run on his great economy so its logical that they would try to harm it, and in so doing, would wish harm on every single American just so they can gain power. Make sure to remember that. They don’t care how many lives might be wrecked in the process, all they care about is gaining and keeping power. So the economy is their target and I am very pleased to learn that President Trump is perfectly willing to protect the economy with the 1977 Act of Emergency Economic Powers.

The economy is largely driven by sentiment. A happy society generally has a happy economy, so all the psychological mechanisms that make human beings do the things that they tend to do are what drive up economic numbers. The Trump presidency has only created good sentiment for the economy by reducing taxes, putting money back in the pockets of the people who create good sentiment, and deregulating the industry so that more people can participate at a faster rate. The low unemployment that we have had and several consecutive quarters of positive GDP growth are only scary to Democrats because its proof that the President’s policies have been working and show no signs of abating by the next election, so its now or never for them and they are trying to throw the kitchen sink at him in an all out effort to defeat him in the election. Its as simple as that.

China as a communist power has been leveraging against the United States for decades and there are plenty of Americans on the liberal side of politics who helped make that happen and wanted to drive our economy into the waiting hands of China. As a result, much more of our modern media is owned or is directly influenced by China making them pawns for Trump’s trade war which had to happen. China couldn’t be allowed to continue to mooch off the American economy the way they were. Any of my readers here know that I have been reporting for decades that China’s economy is directly tethered to America. Without America they have nothing. So in any negotiation with them, this must be revealed. Once China put $75 billion worth of tariffs on American imports Friday, it was the best move possible for Trump to order all American companies out of China and into some other market, preferably America. This of course shocked the world, but its nothing short of the best strategy. We aren’t talking about simple and free open markets here, we are talking about defeating at the very least communism once and for all. And for that, the sympathizers are furious, especially those domestic enemies in North America who have been trying to get communism put in place for most of the last century.

I don’t talk about it much because it was so long ago but my sentiments about communism and the political left was solidified a long time ago. As I have reported, I have had a colorful life and spoken often with people from all kinds of backgrounds. I’ve always been a conservative, but I have a personality that gets along with anybody anywhere about anything. I can speak to people from the other side without losing myself and that has given me the opportunity to socialize with many kinds of people over the years. And so it was that for a period in my life I was invited to all the big parties in Cincinnati that sort of hung off the University of Cincinnati who lived along the rim of Clifton overlooking the city in their very nice homes and I got to know their minds well. I spoke to them as I would anybody, with honor and respect, but any compassion I had for the other side’s way of thinking evaporated in those gatherings. Essentially, they were communists, they wanted communism in America and they were set to do anything to get it. And when I talk about these people, I’m talking about the Dwight Tillery crowd when he was mayor, and Roxanne Qualls and the type of people who hung on their every word. There were the top architects of the city at these events and producers of television and stage plays, owners of the media, all the big wigs of our “culture.” So I learned first hand what they were all about and it was quite clear that the left wing of politics wanted China’s communism.

Clinton was president during those years and those types of people were very ostentatious about their sentiments. They figured that it wouldn’t be long when China would simply absorb America’s economy and we’d all be working for the communist, so they were happy. When Clinton came to town they all rushed out to lick his boots and they were elated to do it. They put up with me and my views because they liked my charisma and they figured I wasn’t a threat. My America was dying and being compassionate liberals, they didn’t mind my acquaintance because deep down inside, someone has to do the work of living, and being natural mooches, they knew to stay close to a guy like me. So, I learned a lot from them, and those types of people haven’t changed no matter what city we are talking about. Only now their theories have failed, and they are desperately trying to cover their tracks whereas then they were just getting a few presidents, in Clinton, Bush and Obama who would prop up communist China and help bring that socialist philosophy to America.

In that regard it doesn’t hurt my feelings at all that companies in China are struggling to figure out to do with President Trump in the White House. But the bottom line is that this fight had to happen and its important that Trump do what he’s doing. The anger about it is obvious because the liberal political party has completely tethered themselves to China over the years and now with the Hong Kong protests and the squeeze from United States tariffs, the Chinese economy is in real danger. And this is all happening at exactly the right time, year three of President Trump’s term with an election year coming up and the potential of four more years of the guy. Liberals know they have no other window if ever to try to topple Trump, so the economy is their target, and they hope it tanks so they can save China and reverse the trend of restoring economic power in the capitalism of the west once and for all to end a debate that was subtly started with the publication of Karl Marx’s works and to restore to the world an economy that does not have communism in it, for the benefit of all.

The Communist Swing from ‘High Noon’ to Trump: Why what Jerry Nadler is doing is far worse than McCarthyism

I think it goes without saying that I love John Wayne and westerns in general, but I have always disagreed with The Duke on his opinion about the great film High Noon. I have never seen it as an allegory on the blacklisting and the congressional investigations led by Joseph McCarthy, which many think it was. Yes, there were communists in Hollywood and yes it is true that Carl Foreman, the screenwriter of High Noon was one of them. The un-American activities were in full swing in 1952 led by Russia to penetrate Hollywood so essentially, they could get the control they have today during the years of Donald Trump. As I have listened to the American leftists reaction to Trump this past week and watched all the activity about the FBI and current hearings led by Jerry Nadler and the rest of the Democrats trying to impeach President Trump, I think we can look back at this documentary about the making of High Noon with a new eye toward history. Personally, I’m tired of hearing about how bad McCarthyism was on America and what impact blacklisting had on Hollywood. That cry baby stuff is long over. Conservatives are blacklisted much worse than any of the communists in Hollywood were then, so let’s revisit the morality of that time without the tears that the left have been hiding behind for years.

Truth be told, I spent the first twenty years of my adult life working toward a career in entertainment and planned to have a Hollywood film stint, and at several points I made major strides in that direction. But I am a Cincinnati conservative not that much unlike many stars who have made it in Hollywood quite spectacularly, but times have changed. If we were living in the days of High Noon where John Wayne set the standard and had the clout to run communists like Carl Foreman out of the country, as Wayne did before High Noon was even released, then I would likely be working in Hollywood right now. So in many ways I could lay claim to being blacklisted all of my adult life from the things I really enjoy. But unlike those complaining left leaning losers, I was able to do other things in my life and I have been successful in other aspects anyway. So what is there to cry about unless you are a one trick pony like most of Hollywood was and still is. They are probably worse today than they were in the time of High Noon’s release.

However, John Wayne made it very public that he didn’t like High Noon because he considered it un-American, and Lloyd Bridges was in an acting group that had lots of communists in it, which didn’t help. The American left loved High Noon because they thought of it as commentary on the McCarthy hearings, as Gary Cooper’s character Marshal Kane was a target for revenge for an outlaw that he had put in jail years ago, before his anticipated retirement. The train bringing the villain was to arrive at High Noon and the bandit was intent to bring his gang to the Marshal to kill him. The Marshal was planning to retire and marry his bride to be, but he is still the law in Hadleyville so he had an honorable obligation to fulfil his job as the lawman. Even though it may kill him. Knowing that a gang of four other killers are going to accompany the leader Kane tries to get other members of the town to help him, but nobody would.

The Soviet Union did not like High Noon because they felt it glorified the individual. Even though there were communists working on the film and the McCarthyism was in full swing in Washington D.C. it wasn’t enough for them and they made sure that even though the film won 4 Oscars because the American left wanted the film to do well, it wasn’t enough for the U.S.S.R. So, in that context it should be clear that John Wayne saw the big picture of the matter and just didn’t like High Noon viewing it as an un-American activity. Wayne was so adamant about his dislike for High Noon that he went into production for Rio Bravo as a direct pro-American answer. So, these are not new disputes these discussions about Trump’s swing back to the political right and waving the American flag around in reaction to socialist and communist propaganda. In the days of High Noon, it was denied that communism was even happening, but after the recent debates with the Democrats has shown, socialism and communism are very much the platforms of their party and their intention. So, the cat is out of the bag. Nobody is hiding it anymore. They were always trying to infect American culture with collectivist Marxism in some version or another. If it wasn’t John Wayne standing up to it, it is now Donald Trump. But the effort has always been there, and the debate is not new.

What has everyone in a panic now as opposed to the times of High Noon is that the political left felt that the pendulum was swinging in their direction in 1952, and it was. Leftist politics and open socialism were being debated, even if masked with different names and that swing has gone on for well over 50 years. But people are sick of it, and for anybody who saw Trump’s rally in Cincinnati in 2019 could attest to, people are now rejecting the political left. Trump is just the vehicle; the movement is taking a life of its own. For the same reasons that westerns were popular in 1952, conservative ideas are reemerging from the aftermath of failed socialist policies regardless of what political theater would like to believe.

The blacklisting that is going on currently with Facebook, Google, YouTube and many others is far worse for conservatives than it was ever in Hollywood as a direct reaction to McCarthyism. And its not John Wayne anymore trying to keep the pendulum from swinging to the left with more and more pro-American westerns. This time it is the left trying to fight the trend, the media that the communists did get control of. They couldn’t get the anti-American ideas to stick and patriotism is back in style and in spite all their screams of warning, are losing. Regardless of the political tendencies of the movie High Noon, I think it’s a great movie about society failing the individual yet the individual doing what needs to be done against all odds to do the right thing. It is certainly an American film especially in relation to the films of today which are far, far, far more left leaning than High Noon. But it is interesting given today’s political climate to look back at that time when the left was winning and building their case and crying about blacklisting. They have gone far further than anything John Wayne did or any other pro-American advocate during the periods of the Hollywood westerns. I could feel bitter about it, but as I said, I moved on to other industrious efforts. The left can’t and they are choking on their own crap and you know what, I think its funny. I am enjoying the show, because they deserve everything they are getting now. They started it. And its good to see them suffering now.

Richard Hardy’s ‘The Program Manager’: A book more about communism in the corporate world than business, but well worth the read

You have to understand, I read a lot. A whole lot. And if I could, I’d read even more. Every time we have one of these Holiday seasons and all the people I know send me texts and emails wishing me good tidings and my response back to them is usually short and to the point, it’s usually because I’m rushing back to a book. That’s not all I do of course, I live a very full life, but I think reading a lot and maintaining my rule of reading at least one book a week all weeks of the year is very important. Professionally I am a professional problem solver, and I don’t spend any time looking over my shoulder the way a lot of people do worrying about being knocked off the ladder of success because honestly the root source of my magic is my ability to read and communicate what I have learned. But to be honest, it takes a lot of work. I don’t think there is any book on this planet that can teach people to be successful if they are not willing to do a lot of hard work. I would say to anybody who fantasizes about being successful that unless you are willing to outwork the other person, you will likely always be second place in anything you do, or in a lot of cases, dead last. If you lack drive, curiosity and a quest for knowledge you will not have much of a life, and those are just cold hard facts. My habit is to look at reading as a daily exercise and I do it as much as I can, and the results always give me a competitive advantage not so much over other people, but in the circumstances of challenges that are presented to us all. I like having the answers to questions before they are even asked, so keeping a brain fed is the best way to achieve that function.

Being the Holiday season of Thanksgiving where generally there are four consecutive days off every year it is a time to catch up my ratio for the year and to stay on target, I needed to read seven more books to catch up to my 2018 targets. Some of the books I read in 2018 were big ones so it can sometimes take a week or two longer to read them, which throws off my target, which I always catch up on during the two Holidays at the end of the year. Over this particular Holiday weekend I was able to read four books, some of them 300 to 400 pages, some of them only about 150. And surprisingly it was that shorter book called The Program Manager written back in 1999 and self-published by Richard Hardy formerly of Boeing that I enjoyed the most. Usually books on business topics are boring and the fun of life is not present in them. But its important to suffer through them because always there are little nuggets of information that need polished a bit before you can use them, but are of great value nevertheless.

Much to my surprise Richard Hardy likely nearing retirement hit on a very slippery topic in his book on how to be a program manager, and that is to articulate how much communism is present in the modern world both politically and within corporate structures. It really too me by surprise, but as an older guy it is understandable. But I’m sure within Boeing there was a lot of consternation about his book coming out, even if it was self-published and a little rough on the grammar. The insights are quite good and as you’d expect from someone at the top of their particular field of endeavor. I look at those kinds of books as though you had the opportunity to meet someone and have them tell you their life story and you can extract from that whatever you want. The professionalism of the publishing profession is to put it as bluntly as Richard Haley did, filled with communists. Of course, nobody calls themselves that, and many of the publishers in New York and London think that term is rubbish. They call themselves progressives now, or “environmental activists” but that is only because they don’t know their history. For students of history, not the history they teach you in public education or in college, what is present in almost everything, especially in the corporate world, is varying degrees of communism that people have just accepted over the last 100 years. A book like Hardy’s The Program Manager would never be published professionally by a New York publisher. But sometimes it is those books that are the most valuable to read.

And while we are being blunt, most of the Lean activities that most company’s employ to attempt to mitigate that trend is to get communist thinking of group associations and power from above structures to become more holistic instead of siloed. Cuba for instance as a communist country was extremely siloed meaning they were never open to outside ideas, but only the ones flowed from the top down. Lean concepts are all about decentralizing those sentiments so that the point of emphasis is the health of the company everyone works with. Like most politicians’ power structures within an organization chart become their obsession and they constantly view their workers as middle-class citizens, or even worse, among the poor and they spend a lot of time thinking about that class structure when they should be thinking about running a business. I was curious what Richard Hardy who worked in the very stringent Boeing culture did to solve problems in that environment and was surprised to find him such an Ayn Rand fan, an individualist who understood the nature of all things. After reading his book I’m not surprised that he was so successful and sought after. But I was surprised to learn how consistent it was to my own personal thoughts on the matter.

And that is what reading can do for you, just when you think you know everything that there is to know, you find yourself surprised by something that should be obvious but isn’t. When it comes to business books, most of them are very dry and philosophically dormant. They talk about how to do something but don’t really get into why companies are siloed or how holistic thinking can be good and sustainable for continued profit growth and employee sustainability. But Richard Hardy made his point quite well protecting the names of his fellow workers at Boeing and replacing them with a metaphor of bulls protecting a herd as essentially being the primary objective of the program manager. Most of what he said in his book are things that are easily obtained in other books and college level courses, but in his case he was talking about the development of the Joint Strike Fighter well in advance of our modern times which I remember being a part of, so I had some context to his subject, then to read some of the behind the scenes decisions and the why and hows was quite a treat. It was a very nice surprise that doesn’t come along too often.

I don’t know how well the copies of it that are still out there will be. I bought one that was in good condition arrive, but as I flipped through it the pages were falling out from being dry rotted. I practically had to tape the thing together as I read it to keep the book intact. But if you can get your hands on one not so much for the task of business management, but for understanding how communism entered all our lives and tried to change the nature of American life so subtly and over such a long period of time, it is a very interesting read and well worth the time in doing it.
