The Many Trojan Horses of American Politics and why there is a National Emergency at the Border.

Do you know why dear reader that Democrats and some Republicans don’t believe there is a crisis at the American border? Because what is happening there is by design, they want it to occur. There is nothing bad about it because they want to see the collapse of America and they don’t want any resistance to it. To the Greeks after a fruitless 10 year siege they were rooting for the effects of using a Trojan Horse to sneak into the city of Troy’s defenses and destroy everything by surprise. The Trojan War was thus won by the Greeks. So of course the Greeks supported the efforts of the Trojan Horse. But for the people of Troy, they lost the war and their lives were destroyed. It all depends on perspective. So no, they don’t see the emergency that Trump is igniting at the southern border with Mexico that a wall needs to be built. Because they want the war against America to lean toward the global siege that has been going on for many, many years to continue and for those forces to be victorious. It was a disappointing revelation to see that 12 senators voted against President Trump’s emergency declaration. But it didn’t matter because Trump vetoed the attack against his actions as he should have. However, it was very disappointing for me to see Rob Portman’s name on that list. I go back a long way with that guy and it pains me to see him go against Trump. But in war, people don’t always hold their values, they do change over time and that appears to be the case with many of the Republicans who have proven themselves weak on border security and the obvious assault through drugs that flood into our American culture with the quite open attempt to destroy it.

Right after Ross Perot lost his election in 1992 I was one of the leaders of what would become the Reform Party and Rob Portman would tag along with us to find his political footing as he wanted to enter politics. I liked Rob and thought it would be great to get a “reform party” kind of personality on the Republican ticket to run for congress, so I helped Rob anyway I could, including setting up a big debate at WLW in the spring of 1993. There was a special election that year for an open congressional seat and Rob was going for it. Nevertheless, Rob won the election and over the oncoming years we lost touch with each other. In 1996 he still remembered me when I did an anti-tax campaign publishing t-shirts called “take an axe to our tax” which were being sold nationwide. I sent one to Rob Portman to wear around Washington D.C. and he sent me a check for $7 which I didn’t ask for. But he was always an honest guy and I think that was his way of acknowledging our previous friendship. I’ve since seen him at a few Trump rallies, but we really haven’t spoken in a couple of decades. He has obviously changed which pains me, but doesn’t surprise me at all. He and all the Republicans who voted against Trump’s emergency declaration were essentially attacking the idea of American sovereignty and were like the Greeks, cheering on the effects of the Trojan Horse.

In a press conference in the Oval Office Trump had supporters of his emergency declaration for border security there to provide details, and one person told the whole story about the fact Americans consume most of the world’s illegal drug market, which is quite a thing to say. While its true that in the United States our free society functions on a supply and demand economic desire, the real truth behind the drug movement is a kind of a Trojan Horse of its own. The border flooding with illegal immigration is one kind of Trojan Horse designed to change voting patterns and collapse the American economy into bankruptcy through legacy welfare costs, but the other Trojan Horse was much more subtle but far more deadlier, the flow and encouragement of drugs in our culture with the open intent of destroying it. The United States uses far more drugs than any other place on earth and that is due to the attacks against our free society from forces jealous of it living beyond the borders, and sometimes within. The American CIA took a very active role in ensuring that illegal drugs flooded into the United States during the sixties, seventies, and eighties creating a permanent class of drug induced citizens who in many cases have literally lost their minds.

16.2% of people in the United States report that in their lifetimes they have used cocaine which is high. 42.4% of Americans report that they have used marijuana over the same period. I actually think the marijuana use is higher than that, but let’s just stick with the measured statistics. The way the drug pushers, many who currently are politicians in our American government, have been selling illegal and legal drug use is as a byproduct of capitalism. Excess wealth promotes excess abuses to mental and physical health. It’s essentially the same message that is given in every Charles Dickens story, that the wealthy overlord is the oppressor of the poor and is the villain of every story. Wealthy people who succeed in American culture thus become drug addicts and abuse themselves with reckless lifestyle choices, so such things should be abandoned for a more centrally controlled government. That is what has been happening and the illegal drug trade that is currently flooding our American border with Mexico is a large strategic assault that has been going on for many, many years and it is and has been a major emergency. Thankfully President Trump is the first president willing to actually tackle this detrimental problem. Anybody against securing the border with a physical wall is against stopping the flood of drugs into America which opponents are of course not wanting to see happen. They want the poison to continue to rob Americans of their intellect and thus to destroy them utterly.

The desire for drug use is the result ultimately of liberalism. With liberal concepts injected into our society, such as reckless sex, over consumption of all resources because responsibility is never a personal ownership type of thing it is no surprise that abuse of alcohol and other drugs are alarmingly high in American culture and the enemies of capitalism want to continue to use that trend as a means to shy the world away from capitalism and into global socialism. That is the ultimate plan and those people don’t care how many lives are ruined in the process. The intent from the beginning was to destroy America and all the people in it. They don’t care how or why, only that it does happen. That is why it is such a shame that the 12 Republicans, such as Rob Portman have been suckered into voting against the President. In many cases they think they are fighting the long game of preservation of a Republic form of government where they don’t want to see Democrats abusing executive authority in the future. But to the enemies of America who support open borders and massive drug use, they don’t intend for an American Republic to even exist in the future. They want a global government that does not have sovereign borders, at all. The two fights aren’t even in the same arena. And that is why the border wall issue is so important and why it is a national emergency. Only half our nation is now poisoned beyond reason into supporting the enemy. And unfortunately, Republicans are helping that enemy along.

The Nothing Part 2 and Michael Jackson

Way back in March of 2013 I wrote an article called “The Nothing” which was a term used in the kid’s fantasy movie, Neverending Story to describe the kind of evil that destroys people. I used the term The Nothing to describe what I saw happening in public education and emerging into the world at large and of course as is always the case, I turned out to be one hundred percent right. However, unfortunately as is always the case too, people were too slow to understand and now our world is much more of a mess. Some people listen, but most don’t, and they have to find out the hard way everything. And that is where we find ourselves today, wondering why socialism is making noise in our political world, why our national debt is up over $22 trillion dollars, and why the HBO movie Leaving Neverland was even made.

I watched at least part one of Leaving Neverland which is about the child molestation of several young boys under the seduction of the pop star Michael Jackson and couldn’t help but see The Nothing hard at work. There were so many things wrong with that entire story that the reality of it is nearly mind-blowing. I still like Michael Jackson by the way. The movie didn’t change my opinion of him. Rather it elaborated the kind of insanity that I believe he fell into as a result of his life. It looks obvious to me that Michael Jackson started regressing into a much more childlike personality during the release of his album, “Bad.” He was clearly missing some screws and those screws came loose in a major way in the years after that hit album and the release of Black or White.

I think Leaving Neverland is a really good documentary about how screwed up our society is under the influence of The Nothing. The parents of the supposedly molested kids ruined their lives in pursuit of the kind of fame that being close to Michael Jackson gave them. Do I believe them, that Michael Jackson was sneaking out of his house in the back seat of a typical Los Angeles family car to play at a kids house away from the spotlight in the way that a typical 6-year-old might? Maybe, which indicates serious problems emotionally in Michael Jackson which wouldn’t surprise me. But he’s also not around to defend himself and I don’t know that I trust any of the interviews shown in Leaving Neverland. I think there are elements of truth in them but the whole story certainly isn’t told. But none of that really matters because the real villain is The Nothing in all actuality. The Nothing obviously overwhelmed the very sensitive talent in Michael Jackson who wanted to be a kind of overman but just couldn’t deal with the amount of evil in the world. A quick review of the Michael Jackson video “Speed Demon” will show this collision of a young overman wanted to deal with the shackles of fame and fortune as it sought to feed off him.

Jackson was at the top of the world and what he found there was a kind of hell on earth of depleted characters that weren’t worth spit and it appears to have shocked him to his core. His “Smooth Criminal” character had lost his smoothness and he went deep inside his own childlike yearnings to find redemption. He sought to start all over again where people made sense before adulthoods wiped away the purity of a living soul. What Jackson was seeking with his costumes and way of living was what I often talk about in the great book The Oz Principle where the remarkable work by Roger Connors, Tom Smith and Craig Hickman used another fantasy story, The Wizard of Oz to describe above the line and below the line conduct. To mix metaphors here, properly, The Nothing wants for nothing more in the entire world but to pull people into Below the Line Thinking. It seeks the destruction of everything trying to climb above the line so that the laws of expectations in existence are so low that nobody even tries to do anything.

And if you really get down to it, that is why we have a $22 trillion debt, because government has encouraged too many people to use government services so that they essentially wouldn’t want to step above the line in their lives, but live below where they were easy to control by a centralized government. Government doing the work of The Nothing wants people dependent on them, it wants them on welfare, it wants them on government health care like CareSource and Medicaid. It want’s senior citizens on poultry Social Security and it seeks at every turn to destroy the positive effects of capitalism so that the crushing effects of socialism can be delivered. Our national debt is what happens when you have both capitalism and socialism fighting for the same country. And it’s why the Beltway wants to destroy Donald Trump, because he represents positive capitalism resisting crushing steps of centralized socialism. President Trump himself is a lot like Michael Jackson, not the child molester, but the energized spirit who wants to be an overman, to step above the line and to carry all of society on his back to take them there. Michael Jackson thought he could do it with his art and collapsed in on himself when he failed. Donald Trump is trying to do the same but with economics—something people can actually build their life with. But the forces against Trump are ominous and are inspired by The Nothing to destroy everything so that the entire world collapses below the line and stays there for good. That is the conflict of our modern times.

I watched the Oprah event after the Leaving Neverland HBO documentary and noticed that she was effectively there doing the work of The Nothing. With Michael Jackson dead now, it was easy to resurrect these old child molestation cases because the effort was never to protect the kids, but it was to destroy Jackson himself. Michael Jackson realized he was falling off the top star block and that the continued investigations into his life were jeopardizing his livelihood, so he made a very progressive album in Black or White to attempt to appeal to the progressive community. But they wanted him off the above the line art and entertainment sector and into the pits of tabloid news and speculation. President Trump is stronger than Jackson, but the intentions with him is the same as it is with figures like Jackson, to pull them off their mountaintops and into below the line thinking so that the parasites of existence can pluck them of their worth and then some. The Jackson story, the national debt and the antics of President Trump are essentially the content of the Friedrich Nietzsche novel Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Only Jackson never made it back to his mountain top hideaway to live out his days away from the parasites of below the line thinking. And Trump is too stubborn to give up, because he feels that it’s the last great thing he can do on this earth. But The Nothing wants to do nothing literally but destroy and it is that tendency in us all that feeds such a thing and makes monsters out of heroes and general misery throughout all of mankind. And it thinks its winning.

We’re Overmedicating our Children

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

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

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

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

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

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

Take The Fifth

One thing we should have all learned from the enemies who have taken over the Beltway culture and are now hostile agents functioning within our government is that it’s perfectly OK to take the fifth under interrogation and crooked testimony. One thing we all should have learned from Lois Lerner when she took the fifth to hide her crimes as one of the big bosses at the FBI who abused her power to suppress Tea Party groups, the reason for doing it is to take the energy out of the investigation on the other side. When malicious characters are plotting your demise, it is best to say as little as possible in the legal realm. Participating in their legal loop holes gives them power and acknowledges their role in the overthrow of our country. I would suggest for now on when it comes to the FBI, Congress, or even the local police, that those of us on the conservative side of things just stick to the Constitution and plead the fifth giving the enemy nothing to work with. It implies guilt in the short run but it prevents incriminating testimony from being twisted around to hurt you with, so you should use it.

I was watching the body language and overall social representation of Adam Schiff the other day while on television talking about the unlimited investigations that this current congress had planned for President Trump and his associates and considered what made a man like that tick. In any other age during our history as human beings Adam Schiff would have had his ass kicked long ago, and he wouldn’t be in power to even lead such investigations. But so long as we conduct ourselves in the manner of law and order, slime ball attorney types like Adam Schiff become the dominate aggressors and those most positioned to defend themselves physically and intellectually are vulnerable to the legal gymnastics of the bar association’s rules. But those rules are pretty worthless, like our Constitution that liberals want to change every five minutes, everything is only written down on paper. They are meaningless unless human beings bring value to them and agree that the conduct is something they will play along with.

In this age where the people in law enforcement lack integrity and they are more than willing to illegally spy on suspects, kick down doors in the middle of the night to arrest friends of the President of the United States purely out of political motivations toward election insurrection, it is in our agreement to follow the words on a piece of paper that gives the very weak and corrupt the means to destroy us. So lets just stop doing it. To all those who have been indicated to provide testimony to this very corrupt congress which is now in session in 2019, when they call you up to provide circus like testimony against President Trump, then do as Lois Lerner did, and Brennen, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch did, plead the fifth and take the energy out of the investigation. They are going to try to do to you what they did to Michael Cohen, Roger Stone and Paul Manafort no matter what you say. So don’t say anything.

Personally, I think that little punk Adam Schiff is due for a physical confrontation, he would be nothing in the real world if not for having the ability to hide behind the laws of our nation to act as a domestic terrorist which is precisely what he’s doing. He doesn’t get his ass kicked because he is effectively in charge of the law so that has given birth to this new kind of corrupt beta male who can destroy countries from gavels and media protests, while avoiding real physical contact that has always previously kept our species from getting too far out of control in the realm of corruption. Only previously when kings and emperors fell under the sickness of corruption did we see such evil perpetrated among the innocent. Now in this age of legal manipulation, people like Adam Schiff can gain the power of former emperors just with a few paragraphs from a book written by legal minds to give their pencil neck little asses influence over the strong. So their abuse is a new kind of bully, one that loses all their power the moment that we, as a society, decide we no longer value the words on a printed page. I am suggesting that we have arrived at that moment.

I’m not saying that we march into congress and rip the little bitch out of his seat and turn him into an accordion, now—but rather that we don’t enter his chamber of legal terrorism and incriminate ourselves to his manipulations. Plead the fifth, that’s why it’s there. In Second Call Defense, which I’m proud to be involved with, we tell people who may shoot someone with their personal firearm to hand the phone over to the police when they arrive on the scene to let the Second Call Defense lawyers do all the talking. We tell shooters not to say anything that might get them into trouble later. Sure, the person shot may have been trying to rob you, or rape your wife, harm your children. Maybe they were as criminals doing what you think is obviously against the law and you feel you have nothing to hide. That may all be true, but in a corrupt political culture like we have now anything and everything can be twisted around against logic and used against you if you prove yourself to be a political enemy. Anything, so say nothing.

I’m a big fan of settling these types of conflicts directly, recently I suggested that bringing back dueling would be a good, civilized thing to our society because it forces people to deal with other in a very terminal way. People aren’t scared of jail time any more and politicians feel they will never get caught. Adam Schiff has nothing to fear from our present society so long as he controls the law. He doesn’t worry about someone kicking his ass to hell and back at a local restaurant, or being hog tied in the middle of the night and turned into a belt because he controls the law for good and bad giving his skinny little ass power he would never otherwise have. Now if you are a little pencil dick like him you love the law because it protects you from the ramifications of your intentions. But for people who could easily squash him like a bug, the law is very bad because it takes away their natural power, they have to provide balance to evil and corruption when it shows itself. Only people in Adam Schiff’s position would think that such a system is good because it protects him from us once we get pissed off and are ready to straighten things out in our own way.

So when they call you forth, make sure to take the Fifth. Don’t feed their corruption with an acknowledgment of their power. Just don’t give them anything. Don’t talk, don’t allow yourself to be tricked into false testimony, and certainly don’t trust them. They do not have your best interests in mind. They are vile and evil and they deserve their asses kicked in a major way. But under the terms of civility, don’t feed their investigations with an acknowledgment of power for which they have never deserved. Give them nothing for television. Give them nothing for The New York Times and Washington Post to twist around toward the liberal perspective—give them absolutely nothing. And if you can manage, give them less than that!

Chevrolet and Ford’s Circular Firing Squad

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Needed Battle Between Capitalism and Socialism

The best thing to happen in America has been and will continue for quite a long time into the future, be the election of Donald Trump. If there was ever to be a proper battle between capitalism and socialism it needed to happen while he was president. I knew that battle would occur at some point in the near future for many years. After all, capitalism had created the greatest country on the face of the planet without question, especially in the category of financial resources. But socialism is what governments wanted, it gave them power and a compliant voting base, so the word democracy became a very addictive element in all global cultures. Public education around the world began to focus on New Deal socialism instead of the rigors of capitalism and several generations of children grew up on a steady dose of socialism in their lives, making them very confused adults. The masses certainly had their sentiments directed in the direction of socialism, so the concern has been mounting for many years.

If the meaning of Donald Trump’s life could be said to have definition, it was that he was being prepared for this battle his entire life. Capitalism needed an unapologetic champion, the kind of person Ayn Rand dreamed of evolving from her famous books, but never came to defend themselves. What we ended up with was people like John Boehner, Mit Romney and John McCain. Even the great Ronald Reagan fell short of a proper and sustaining defense of capitalism. The world needed a King Solomon type, someone who had lived it all and seen everything and still enjoyed lots of gold and beauty which was the direct result of capitalism.

From birth literally anybody with any kind of money in American culture, such as portrayed on television shows like Dallas with J.R. Ewing were always the villains. The heroes were always the penniless martyrs and idealistic greater gooders such as the Lone Ranger and even Zorro. I grew up on the great westerns especially Who Shot Liberty Valance and in most of their productions is the type of sentiment that was found in the creation of a New Deal under the FDR administration. Ayn Rand had made her observations about what was happening and rot her books during the 30s through the 50s. After all, she had to flee Russia during their revolution which brought along communism and she didn’t want to see the same thing happen to America. Her concern was certainly justified, even in American westerns it was always the big rancher who was the villain and it was left to the scruffy loner to save society from the villains.

In is actually a miracle that we have arrived in 2019 America with any scrap of socialism left, but as I have said many, many times, the trend in human society is to always move toward more autonomy, more individual liberty. That is the reason the cell phone industry has exploded and why personal computing and gaming is such a huge industry, because it gives people more autonomy, not less. That has caused young people to turn away from socialism in practice even though intellectually they know of nothing else. That kept capitalism alive for enough years to get a president like Trump in the White House which is why there is so much anger about his election from the institutionalist who secretly wanted socialism for the last 100 years.

This is why I often say that our public schools are worthless because their primary instruction is socialism as demonstrated by the many federal programs that are part of the curriculum coming out of the state capitols in order to get their government funding. But socialism has no place in American culture so why have public education at all if the kids coming out of it can barely read, speak, and behave properly in society. When the only goal of the public education institution which is obvious by now is to create reliable voting blocs of stupid people will continue to vote for complete losers into state and federal offices.

A lot of people are scared of the fights that are happening because there are people on both sides who have been revealed that nobody really took the time to get to know. That is what England learned in Brexit when social media effectively produced more voters than usual to participate in the election. At the same time in America, western civilization was having a similar debate and people were emerging to support Donald Trump whom had never cared to vote before. And now because of the autonomy of socialism media people have a voice they never had before and that is a very healthy thing, but it is scary to an establishment which spent the last two hundred years, likely longer, ignoring those voices and assuming that people wanted what the political aristocracy was offering. Which of course, people didn’t.

Trump‘s type of wealth was the old-fashioned kind, his elegant lifestyle and unapologetic supermodels on his arm said to the world, I work harder than you and have more. Catch me if you can, and it is that type of fuel which has produced so much enormous wealth which many Americans take for granted. Of course, some Buddhist from the orient will declare that such a life is off-center and meaningless, that we should not seek material possessions in this life, that we should live for others as they sit on a rock and contemplate the nature of the universe dirt poor and barely clothed. And the business person trained all their life to be socialists will seek peace in their lives as they are expected to be capitalists, but their minds break down due to the stress and they turn to eastern mysticism for comfort whether it’s the drum beat of some Indian music from North America or the chants of some Tibetan monks. The temptation to quit life and join the unstressed masses is great and promoted by the governments of the world and is very prevalent in our present culture. But that’s not how it was ever supposed to be, Trump was fortunate to come to terms with this early in his life. He’s not at all a stressed-out rich person drowning in wealth like Citizen Kane, he’s happy to have too much because he understands that it is just a means to keeping score in the game.

And it is the game that makes all cultures better and is at the center of capitalism. Nothing makes the lives of people better than capitalism and for a change there is finally a president who understands that and is defending it for the first time in any type of history. Even as socialists see that there is a real danger to their way of life emerging in the Trump administration their means to defend that lifestyle is forcing their most radical advocates out of hiding and into the game where they will lose, and that is a very good thing. It is better to have them functioning in the open for a change so people can make their own decisions about things. That battle might look scary, but its far healthier than what has transpired in the past. And for that we should all be excited.

A Dangerous and Ominous Case

The Jussie Smollett case tells us everything we need to know about the FBI and the Andrew McCabe situation where a tendency to lie and fabricate a story without a grain of truth in it is possible and could be accepted at face value. I have said many times that the FBI coup against the incoming President Trump is the worst political disaster in American history and would rank as relevant anywhere in the world so far as corruption and high crimes. But the problem with it is people have a hard time believing people could possibly be so vile and evil, especially when they act like James Comey, as an honest Boy Scout. We live in an entertainment culture where we get our inputs of the world from actors and news anchors, so given the typically lazy nature of the average person, they want to believe what Comey and McCabe were saying about their involvement in overthrowing an American president even before he could even take the oath of office.

Jussie Smollett was riding high on the hit show “Empire.” He literally had the world eating out of his hand, so he had no real reason to become a political activist hiring two fellow actors to stage an attack against him outside his Chicago apartment supposedly yelling “This is MAGA” country while they poured bleach on him and threatened to hang him lynching style. As it turned out he made the whole thing up, but not before going on major news outlets such as Disney owned ABC to give interviews in an attempt to build a case against the Trump presidency by suggesting that it was the MAGA hats that were inspiring violence all across the country and needed to be stopped. It looked phony at the time, but over time it was proven to be a complete hoax giving an insight into just how radical and desperate the political left is. If Jussie Smollett would do such a thing with no real political motivation other than trying to get Democrats fired up against President Trump, then what would the FBI do to cover their own tracks of actual crimes committed in trying to put their favor behind Hillary Clinton over President Trump? The answer is pretty ominous and should be a lesson to us all.

We have to consider how a young kid like Jussie Smollett working successfully in the Hollywood culture could have even put together in his mind that doing such a thing was acceptable, or even needed. He had to know the risks, yet he did it anyway. What does that say about the mentality of the people he works with every day, who he thought would be impressed with his antics? Even when things were turning south on him, it took the media a long time to admit that they had jumped the gun on him and should have kept their mouths shut. But in the scheme of things Jussie Smollett is small potatoes, certainly not a national emergency, but an indicator to what extent a person will lie to support their industry held political beliefs.

However, lets take what we know about Hollywood, the media, and people like Jussie Smollett and apply them to the culture of Washington D.C. which is much more motivated to push out challenges to their way of doing things and would even go to breaking the law to protect themselves. Is it so far-fetched to believe that James Comey, Robert Muller and Andrew McCabe would go much further in lying about things to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump? Obviously not because Andrew McCabe was caught doing it. He was on 60 Minutes this past week trying to put a happy face on the crime of the century, but the essence of what he did was attempt an overthrow of a newly American President by making up a complete fiction about him to justify the action. Anybody could say a person was colluding with Russia for instance and force them to defend themselves in a court of law, especially when the accusers control the law as enforcement officers and policy makers.

If we have learned anything from the Smollett case, which isn’t the first time in human history to be sure, but these days with social media serving as a checks and balance against the liberalized media, we have more evidence than ever that these things go on, routinely. We should then figure that Watergate wasn’t the first time a political party tried to get an advantage over another party through some nefarious means. Then it should not come as a surprise that behind the scenes for many years, a deep state of insurgents who have always thought they knew better than the rest of us have functioned from the shadows to overthrow threats to their existence. And what they tried to do in the modern era with President Trump was an ostentatious display of arrogance and criminal conduct. They tried to overthrow the President the same way the CIA might try to instill some dictator in a foreign land to provoke a regime change. Only this happened within our borders, and against American law with great disrespect and arrogance.

At the very least all those involved in this FBI mess should go to jail. They should be prosecuted to such an extent that nobody would ever try such a thing again. It’s not OK to lie about things to shape public opinion and certainly not to overthrow election results. In the case of election tampering it was the smellers who were the fellers, the FBI was caught manipulating an election in the favor of Democrats. The lie was obvious. It is just as much of a lie as the liberal actor Jussie Smollett attempting to invoke a race war to create public sentiment for his side by forcing MAGA supporters to defend a negative that never happened. Maybe the kid should have watched Scooby Doo more as a child because he should have known that once he went on ABC and started running his mouth that people were going to check out his story, and he’d be exposed. But the FBI was so audacious that they thought they could control the story and that even if they were caught, nobody would have the guts to come after them. Which is how McCabe found himself to be in the situation he is in presently. He’s trying to make a martyr of himself, to sound like the lone rebel standing up for the corruption of an election by people who didn’t know as much as he did. But how is that any different from a typical terrorist who thinks that only they understand the way the world should be and are equipped to protect that vision even from people who aren’t as smart as they are. Andrew McCabe made himself into every Bond villain in movie history, the only guy in the world who knew the right thing to do and took it upon himself to take action against the rest of society. Only in this circumstance, it wasn’t just McCabe, but the culture of the FBI itself. And that is why this is such a dangerous, and ominous case.
