The New Brownshirts: Safety and compliance has become the new weapons of communism

We all have a job to do, otherwise the world ends up with a bunch of people like we see in the Tiger King documentary on Netflix that is so popular. The Constitution must be maintained with vigilance otherwise it dies and we end up being run in life by people like Joe Exotic and Jeff Lowe. From hour number one of the China Virus outbreak of the latest rendition of the coronavirus which produced in people flu like symptoms of an accelerated pneumonia the cure was certainly weaponized to be much more severe than the cause and the misery absorbed by all of us will never be forgotten. I can say that I will be beating on this drum for a long time because this is the closest I’ve ever seen us come in America to a total police state. Many thought it would be science fiction to even consider such a ridiculous proposal as what we have seen as public policy in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak but here we are. I literally sat on pins and needles over the weekend of April 4th 2020 and watched the routine DeWine press conference at 2 PM worried about what the little guy would say next, whether or not wearing masks in public would become “law” or if we would all be punished due to a block party that happened in Over-the-Rhine in downtown Cincinnati Friday night. “Social distancing” had been violated and the entire state of Ohio was bracing for another over-reaction by DeWine to impose a curfew. This clearly wasn’t the way America was ever supposed to operate.

I had a lot to do over that same weekend, all of it considered essential work but I was actually concerned about being stopped to explain it, and that should never be the case in the United States ever. It was about this time that I learned that the great Republican governor of Georgia had taken the leadership on his own to re-open the beaches there to give people some level of happiness due to his recent stay at home order. The Republican governor of South Carolina had been fighting that temptation, to issue a stay at home order which was a popular well populated state that had much reduced cases of Covid-19. There are likely lots of reasons why, but I had to admire the tenacity of those governors to resist the push to close up shop which was really the intent of the entire playbook of the Covid-19 outbreak. America was under attack by a new kind of communism, and there were a whole new group of “brownshirts” emerging, or the youth of communism that overtook St. Petersburg in Russia to overthrow the entire country toward state-controlled means of production. It was happening in America and I certainly wasn’t OK with it, and I will never forget it. As I did my essential business over that weekend mentioned there were many on Twitter and other social media formats asking Governor DeWine to mandate a curfew. There were enemies functioning in the open in America and they were seeking to apply pressure on our governors to overact and rob us of our dignities promised by our Constitution, and it was getting into the very scary category.

Let’s just say I made significant investments over the weekend to protect the Second Amendment by visiting Cabela’s in West Chester, and what I saw there was truly sad. I made significant purchases and while checking out, they had very strict rules on social distancing, everything was measured six feet apart, they were only letting 50 people into the store at a time, and the cashier had to maintain that distance the entire time while taking payment and scanning all my goods. It was irritating and actually pretty scary. The men in line with me were tough outdoor types and we all were looking at each other like, “is this our country? You’ve got to be kidding.” None of us should be scared of a stupid little virus, this was not the American way to deal with a problem and even Cabela’s was caught up in the vast evil of being forced into overcompliance. Too many rules by the state imposing itself on the imagination and general happiness of what a place like Cabela’s offers our culture. Later I went to Wal-Mart in West Chester and it was the same kind of story, a line outside as if it were Kings Island to keep too many people from going into the store, social distancing was strictly being monitored and there was a quiet suspicion of everyone, because they might be the latest narc telling the government that this place of business or that was not complying as there was a class of people in our midst who wanted this coronavirus to produce a communist takeover of our Constitutional rights, and to change the nature of how we operated in the United States.

The worst thing about it was that the entire playbook for dealing with the virus was not American at all, it was based on a global reaction to what the World Health Organization called a “pandemic.” The moment they did that the entire world joined together as if it were governed by a one world government and they shut down the economy and issued stay at home orders. And in the United States we had clear home-grown terrorists who were doing their part into shaming people into compliance with this new world order—and I could see a fight coming. That was why I was nervous, it wasn’t the fight itself but the realization that once I was pulled over and questioned for doing my business, or one of these people confronted me about not wearing a mask, everything I had built my life around would be in jeopardy and an all out conflict would ensue that would prevent us from all going back nicely to the way things had been in America. Luckily later that same day Trump showed signs of his old self. The death toll numbers were obviously way overstated and the doctors at the front of the alarmism were retreating from their previous assumptions and it was obvious that the president was losing patience with them. It was time to get the economy moving again. And not all governors got completely suckered into the same behavior, which was likely what has saved us all from an all-out civil war. This reaction to Covid-19 was built completely on peer pressure and entirely too many fell victim to it.

We have an obligation to protect our Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic, even when there is a virus outbreak. The numbers on this coronavirus will be nowhere near what other virus outbreaks have been when its all said and done, there was no justification for shutting down the American economy and we should have never been following some playbook from another country. This attempt at forcing Americans to do the same thing that they were doing in Europe or in China was an attack on our way of life and its not forgivable. And we’ve seen that there are plenty of domestic enemies around us every day because it was they who were going around trying to shame people into following governor orders who were clearly in a competition to outdo each other in compliance to safety. Safety had become a new kind of tyranny and our lifestyles were being openly attacked by the advocates. And that is something I will never forget. I certainly won’t let anybody else forget it either.

DON’T LISTEN TO THE EXPERTS: Covid-19 in a world of elephants and long tusks

I have been hard on Mike DeWine through the entire Covid-19 outbreak not because he’s a bad person. He’s actually a good person, but he screwed up as a leader and listened to the experts without providing the kind of executive filtration needed in his position. So I say he should be impeached for abusing his emergency powers, costing the state of Ohio billions, and putting unnecessary hardship on each and every person trusting him and his decisions. Good people do dumb things and when they do, they get fired like everyone else. And his mistake was in turning over practically all decision making in response to the coronavirus outbreak to Amy Acton, a professional academic, and letting her set a liberal policy in how to react to a crisis as an unelected bureaucrat. Now, I’m a Republican, an old fashioned one and am used to the people around me not being as solid of a Republican as I am. If the elephant is the symbol of our party, I am that elephant off by himself grazing in the hot sun with tusks dragging on the ground. DeWine is that beat up soul huddled in the group that has been through a lot, he’s had his tusks cut off for poaching, he’s been mulled by lions and he’s certainly been weakened over the years so he is what we call a RINO Republican, he seeks the safety of the herd for his own reasons. I get it, but when he makes himself easy prey for attackers, then he is a threat to my party and philosophy, and he doesn’t have a right to do that, and that is precisely what he has done by bringing in professionals to run the state where he lacked the courage to do so himself.

When we look back on this Covid-19 crises it will be our trust in the “professionals” that got us into all the trouble and caused the trillions of dollars in damages. We’ve set our society up across the world to turn people into overly specialized experts in their fields of endeavor when in all actuality we have been doing it all wrong for well over a century. Experts are good for specificity, but often leadership requires many ways of looking at the same information and picking the best path, and over-specialization blinds even the best experts to the totality of needed leadership. In the case of the world-wide shut down the source of the problem was terrorist intentions to take advantage of the specialized class of doctors in the WHO, the attention starved CDC and all the state health directors and contaminate their trust in modeling with bad assumptions which then triggered a global panic. Once that happened and the experts were crippled and looking to cover their asses with more bad numbers to try to get out of the corners they painted themselves into, the terrorists were looking to inflict massive social change while the world was focused on what the experts would say next.

For many years, and I still have that toolbox in my shop at my house, I had a saying I held very true from the 9 ways of the samurai printed on the lid of my toolbox so I could see it every day. I worked at Cincinnati Milacron for a while when I was younger and got to know a lot of machinists and precision manufacturers where I learned a lot, but I always leaned on those 9 ways of the samurai to think above and beyond the problems that company went through as they gradually died before our very eyes. I would say the cause of death was over-specialization. As the industry changed, Cincinnati Milacron couldn’t make the switch because they were too specialized to adapt. But one of those 9 ways of the samurai is to know the way of all things. That means that a person should not be specialized in only one thing then fit themselves into the cogs of society to only do that one thing, whether it’s a lawyer, an accountant, a manager, a mother or father, a teacher—whatever. What is required, especially among anybody offering themselves as a leader is a person hungry for knowledge in all fields and to understand their ways and how they connect. You don’t have to be a master of all the topics, but to understand their flow and relationships. Most companies, or governments die because they are overly specialized and too in love with processes that create a world of specialization. When needed, they can’t think on their feet and are easy to defeat when challenged.

And that is where we find ourselves with this coronavirus nonsense. We have allowed specialized doctors to create policy instead of the debate our republic demands and now we have all kinds of trouble. The powers behind this virus outbreak put the pressure on President Trump who has a history of doing exactly as I have said, not trusting experts and making decisions based on a wide range of understanding that most CEOs can do. When the experts threatened to paint Trump with every death that came out of essentially an aggressive pneumonia outbreak, Trump took a step back and said OK, we’ll listen to the experts. Its an election year. He’s not going to let them hang this on his head when it was the experts who said that millions of people would be dead if we didn’t social distance. And then they backed that figure down to 200,000. Now that number as of this writing is going down further and Dr Doom himself is trying to blame the modeling that he built his whole case around. If I were Trump, I wouldn’t play that game, but he is after all a New York liberal. He’s new to the field of elephants. His tusks aren’t as big as mine, but he hasn’t had his cut off like DeWine has, so there is at least enough fight and logic in Trump to make something good of all this. But it was all so unnecessary, and all the pain was caused by “experts” who leveraged themselves onto the world stage, and now they are drowning by the attention.

Leadership, real leadership is where you listen to what experts say, but you consider all types of other information as well. Americans are not a society that will be ruled by some academic class, which is exactly what this Covid-19 outbreak is about. To watch Doctor Doom from the CDC contemplate the 10th Amendment and wonder why the federal government hasn’t shut down the entire country, he clearly doesn’t know enough about law to grapple with the scope of his desire. He may know something about colds and viruses as a professional doctor, but he clearly doesn’t understand constitutional law, or much of what drives human behavior. He has built his models around his academic view of the world and nothing else, and that has put us all in a perilous place because the rest of the medical community has followed him state to state blindly accepting his mistakes as our new reality. To know the art of all things, to fight a virus we must consider that it is the human immune system that we must bolster to fight off viruses and to do that vitamin D is important (sunshine). Happiness in general. Good food, optimism, there are lots of factors to consider. We could easily say that following these doctor’s orders has likely spread the virus by lowering everyone’s immune systems in such a passive state. Specialists who are only thinking about lives saved and can only think in the means of a process struggle when the true answer is outside of those questions such as what factors make a life—a life? Someone pent up scared in their homes waiting on a government led by doctors to save them or a self-empowered person acting cautiously and doing all the right things to build themselves up to combat the virus with their own immune systems, which way is the best path? The push for a centralized solution ultimately is what caused all the deaths if we want to blame them on anything. The “slow the spread” tactic came up by these experts has only delayed the inevitable, which was their push to highlight socialized desires in the healthcare system, at the expense of all our happiness and good living.

If we listen to the doctors they would have us all wearing helmets each time we go outside, putting on masks so that ugly people feel more equal to pretty people, and they’d have us all having sex in hazmat suits. They are not leaders, only considerations. They become problems when we make leaders out of them and when they are, they destroy everything in sight every single time. There is no instance on earth or in world history where an overly specialized society ever thrived, and it never will in the future. Leadership remains an elusive science, but when a politician like DeWine accepts a leadership role then turns it over to a process driven specialist like Amy Acton, and she screws everything up, its his fault. You don’t surrender leadership over to experts who are too specialized to see the big picture. And that is precisely why every single American, and many around the world are suffering right now, because leadership was left to those least able to conduct it.

It is Terrorism Behind the Covid-19 Outbreak: We can now prosecute those responsible

So its time to start making the case that everyone, or every organization who has attempted in some way to use the coronavirus pandemic as cited by the World Health Organization in a fearful way to change behavior, especially in America, as a terrorist. After all, that’s what terrorists do, they use fear to make a point. They don’t always have to be dressed up like some desert slugs walking in from the ruins of the Middle East. They can be working professors out of Harvard and/or run major television networks. They might even be doctors advising governors and presidents on policy regarding how to deal with a virus outbreak. They might be rich people fresh off the board with Microsoft who want to scare everyone into emitting a zero-carbon footprint to deal with climate change. Anyone who has used terror to manipulate politics to advance their own point of view could classify themselves as a terrorist and the behavior surrounding Covid-19, the “China Virus” is certainly that. I think we are now well beyond the point of saying that the models the scientists were using to predict the viral outbreak coming out of China that has paralyzed the world and shut down the economy everywhere were accidentally wrong. The way that doctors and media outlets have used that wrong information to instill fear and behavior change on just America is enough to classify them as global terrorists, and its time we start dealing with them in that way.

If a ship captain is drunk and runs their ship into a harbor killing many on accident, they would still be charged criminally with negligence. If a pilot landing a plane crashed killing many on board, they would be criminally investigated and blamed for the killings. If a train operator allowed their vehicle to pick up too much speed and crash through a derailment killing many thousands of people, they would be blamed for the conduct. So it should not be considered otherwise that the doctors and scientists who got all these models of death counts wrong with the Covid-19 shutdown of the American economy wouldn’t be held accountable. Let’s say it was an accident, they should still face jail time or other criminal prosecution for screwing up our society and ruining the happiness of so many people—even if they did so with the best intentions in mind. But, and this wouldn’t be hard to prove, if they did it with the intent to change the behavior of people with terror, then what they did was just as wrong as those 9/11 terrorists who crashed two planes into the World Trade Center to harm the American economy back in 2001. 19 years later, climate change activists and many professional scientists with an obvious hatred of capitalism have used the Covid-19 outbreak as political cover for their terrorism and it hasn’t taken long to reveal their true intentions. Already the governor of California is stating that this coronavirus is an opportunity to usher in a whole new “progressive era.” So the concept that everything behind Covid-19 is an act of terror, not a health concern as it is being disguised, is a true representation of what we are dealing with as a nation. And those openly participating are behaving with criminal conduct, not good intentions.

I’m convinced that Mike DeWine of Ohio has bought into the deadliness of the potential for this viral outbreak, because he trusts the scientists. I don’t think President Trump has, but he’s always being accused of not listening to the professionals, and with the media ready to blame him for every death that “could” happen as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak—he doesn’t have much choice but to play along. They certainly got his attention by saying millions of people were going to die as a result of this virus outbreak and each day when that doesn’t turn out to be the case, they revise the goal posts to fit a narrative that is meant to change behavior in America, everything from “social distancing” to wearing masks. Mike DeWine believes he is saving lives by being one of the first governors in the country to issue stay at home orders essentially shutting down the state. In my book, it was his decision to be a leader and to not fall for the antics of terrorism coming out of the science community that is full of climate change activists—so he is guilty for what he has done—even if he meant well. Someone must pay for the trillions of dollars lost, and for the loss of our way of life. He, nor does anybody get to say, “we’re all in this together,” then just go to bed thinking they saved the world from an invisible enemy. That enemy was never really the enemy, it was just a virus that most people became sick from and got over. Some people did die of complications like what happens with just about everything that people do. There was nothing all that unique about this virus, only that it was being weaponized to attack western civilization and it had terrorist soldiers in place to advance the dialogue and scare politicians like Donald Trump, and Mike DeWine into suspending our constitutional rights and altering our lives due to the sheer terror of potential death. Yet there is nothing that says that by staying home we are saving a single life, or that slowing the spread is doing anything but prolonging the inevitable. Where the real cure is to get the virus, stay home for a few days, then return to the world immune to coronavirus in the future, the doctors and scientists of the world have interrupted nature to invoke behavioral change that was not meant to save a single person, but assist them with advancing a progressive, socialist agenda in North America.

There is clearly enough evidence for even a mediocre lawyer to establish intent on this case on a scale for which the world has never seen. Pick a target, we are in a target rich environment, from CNN to Dr. Doom himself. We could certainly throw in Amy Acton from Ohio into that mix. I’m willing at this point to blame her for using global models corrupted with information out of Italy, Spain and New York to set policy for Ohio. Her choice to make decisions off bad data makes her guilty of all the misery she has caused in Ohio. The death toll in Ohio could be said to be the same regardless of coronavirus. Death of any kind is bad, and it looks nasty to the front-line workers and people who handle the body bags. Its not good under any condition. But to associate Covid-19 with an emphasis on a daily death count scoreboard is meant to make people just look at this virus and to sell them on behavior change as justified by an inaccurate measure. When the measure is deliberately, or accidently inaccurate and we are making decisions off it, then someone must pay for the results. And when we find out that all these death counts were propped up to advance lifestyle changes in western cultures it was terrorism that was being applied and that is a criminal enterprise that must be punished. No matter who it is perpetrating it. We need to view them not as heroes of science, but of terrorists representing climate change and seeking socialism around the world by convincing people to give up their rights for some made up greater good. And that is what we are dealing with, not well-intentioned scientists, but outright terrorists who have simply changed tactics and are presenting us with a new problem, those who seek to take advantage of our trust in order to advance political objectives.

Too Many “Orders” from Little Man DeWine: America has had enough–the government has let them down

When we talk about the reason’s Mike DeWine should be impeached for how he behaved during the made-up Covid-19 virus outbreak it is because of Tweets like the one displayed here. DeWine used to be a prosecutor and attorney general before he became governor of Ohio and expects people to do what he says. I’ve seen him here and there at events in the past and thought he was a nice enough guy of decent intentions, but he’s a little guy. He’s easy to step on, lets put it that way, like a little dog yapping at your feet when you visit a friend’s house who has such little dogs. You sort of pet his head, give him a piece of table scrap and send him on his way. But when such a little yapping dog becomes governor, and suddenly there are emergency powers in the hands of that little creature, now there’s a problem. Little people, or people who have an insecurity complex because all they have done with their lives is public service, always living off the state for their sustenance, are dangerous with too much power because they are trying to compensate for all kinds of psychological issues, and sure enough, since the Covid-19 crises was given an excuse by the Trump administration to abuse executive power all in the name of safety Mike DeWine became the leader of a governor’s movement to outdo each other by going way too far on the whole “social distancing” concept introduced by the CDC, which was given to them by the Bill Gates and communist loyalists, the World Health Organization.

Each day through the economic shutdown essentially started by DeWine in March the governor has progressively gotten worse and more authoritarian in his “orders.” The guy clearly doesn’t understand Americans outside of a prosecution office. American’s don’t follow orders. They may do so to stay out of jail or get away from authority, but it is not in their nature to wake up in the morning looking for someone to give them orders on how to live. So at every chance, they will rebel, especially if they don’t have trust in the people giving orders. Natural compliance is not a state Americans will stay in for a long period of time. They may be open to the idea in a natural emergency which is why I say that the Covid-19 case is fake. The virus may be real but the impact of it has been greatly overblown as a government power grab. Its global in nature and is in rebellion against a Trump administration that has been trying to put America first. People were compliant when they thought they were going to die, but so far, the math of the whole coronavirus has not revealed any real danger. The news had tried to make it so, but the reality hasn’t matched, and it won’t. DeWine has abused that nature of fear of this virus to satisfy his own ego, his little man complex that he keeps hidden from even his best friends, but was always there with him in his quests for power in politics over the years, especially as an attorney general.

To accept DeWine’s rationalizations about losing constitutional freedoms for the sake of saving lives, you must believe that the coronavirus is deadly, which it isn’t by itself. Its consistent with other dangerous things and is nothing we should alter our entire society over. The math has been faulty from the beginning, the government is trying to measure cases with more testing to bolster their graphs and justify their alarmism. But they are not so eagerly publishing recovery rates or making a very big deal out of the actual mortality rate, which they have fed into their “scientific” models at over 1% when the actual per capita ratio is well under1%. As more testing will reveal, the actual mortality rate is down with most viral outbreaks. So the focus isn’t on that, its on the number of cases that test positive and each one they get they put it on the scoreboard to scare everyone into believing they are going to die to justify their massive power grabs. If people like DeWine are too stupid to see the scam because they believe they can trust these health officials, then they shouldn’t be in office to begin with. If they know and do all this anyway, then they are massively corrupt and should be removed for that. In DeWine’s case he stepped over a judge’s ruling over holding the primary election which sent a message to everyone. It’s what he says that goes and don’t look to the courts to save you on constitutional debate. I will win. His desire to do that is why I think he needs to go. We can find another Republican to replace him. A “better” Republican, not some little guy with a power complex. That doesn’t help the Republican Party grow, it just provides a distraction that must be overcome.

To make matters worse, DeWine and several other governors who have shut down their entire economies are going to have hell to pay and they are already feeling it. They are trying to milk out the deadliness of the Covid-19 outbreak with artificially high predictions hoping the hospitals will be overrun to justify all their panic. But as I reported a few days ago, there are plenty of hospital beds in Ohio to take care of the coronavirus cases, easily. And when they are pulling that egg off their faces, it will take more than sorry to make it right with all the bankruptcies and budget deficits that they will impose on their tax payers in the wake of this “pandemic,” as the Covid-19 was called by that same communist leaning WHO. And no, we won’t forget what happened. I won’t, I can assure everyone of that, especially Mike DeWine. His orders served his needs, not the actual safety of the public. He sold it that way, and time will prove that to not be the case. So closing down the parks, the churches, Hobby Lobby and so many businesses in Ohio just to appease his ego to have his orders followed will prove to be devastating to the future of Ohio, and is yet another reason he needs to be removed from office. Its not against the law to be stupid, an ego maniac, or just gullible, but that doesn’t give anybody the right to rule over others.

And that is why no matter what Governor DeWine does, this unlimited amount of time that there is a “National Emergency” has already ran its course. People are tired of being ordered around and they can see for themselves that this silly virus isn’t as deadly as the government wanted it to be. Sure, it has accelerated patients to death who had other issues, but the government has tried to paint every little sniffle on a deadly, exotic virus from China and they attempted to rule people’s minds with fear. And people used to freedom can only be pushed so far before they start giving you the finger. And that’s where we find ourselves going into the first week of April. People are sick of Governor DeWine’s “orders.” They have gone on too long with no end in sight, and that has made people angry. And that is dangerous not for people, but for the governments who have abused their power. A day of Hell for them is coming, and there won’t be any sympathetic ears to listen. Someone is going to have to pay for all this and it won’t be the people who were abused.

The worst thing of all during the virus outbreak has been how weak and reactive our governors and even President Trump has been to provide an end date. I have heard all the theories that this whole operation is a real war against the Deep State, to get everyone safe in their homes. That this effort was to allow “Q” to happen. Honestly, I think it’s just stupidity and gullibility at play and its been bad for people to see their elected representatives fail to provide leadership under pressure and to let doctors run the world. Leadership often requires bold decision making, not the kind of people who are so risk-averse that they wear helmets out to get their mail. Its one thing to listen to their advice, its quite another to have them run our lives, because most Americans are just a little reckless by nature, and its essential into what makes us, us. We don’t want to change that.

Ohio Has Plenty of Hospital Beds: So what is the excuse now for people stuck in their homes?

Ohio has plenty of hospital beds and can handle the “surge” of need from the coronavirus in a recent IHME model cited recently by the White House.  While its sad to think that 1,672 people in Ohio might die of the virus, more than that will die of many other things.  So if the reason for shutting down the economy with stay at home orders is the real reason for all we have suffered from, then what is the excuse now?  Here is the article as reported by the Ohio Star, click the link to see the whole thing:

 

A new epidemiological model cited by White House officials shows that Ohio hospitals have sufficient regular hospital bed and ICU hospital bed capacity for when the peak of the coronavirus hits the state in the upcoming weeks.

According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) model, Ohio is projected to see its resources peak on April 20. The model shows that the Buckeye State will need 5,609 beds; however, the state presently has 14,290 beds available, according to the study.

Furthermore, Ohio is expected to need 854 intensive care unit (ICU) beds by April 20, the date the model projects the pandemic will peak in Ohio, but it already has 12,238 ICU beds ready to go. 

In terms of deaths, the IHME model predicts Ohio will have 1,672 by August 4. As of Tuesday, Ohio Department of Health (ODH) numbers show 55 people have died from the coronavirus.

In short, there  is no reason to keep Ohio closed.  So lets get back to work!

No, We’re Not All In this Together: When government ignores the rules we all agree to we have an obligation to replace them

There are so many things wrong with the Covid-19 reaction by our government at so many levels, but the worst attribute of it was the decision to extend the suspension of the Constitution until April 30th over fears of a high death count of people suffering from the global virus outbreak. The lockdown of our American economy is a death of its own, one that will likely cause many more deaths and suffering than the virus. But the way we have been tricked into measuring this thing put President Trump into a bad position. I get the politics on every level, but that doesn’t make it right and my position is as it always has been, whether or not Trump is president, I agree to the Constitution. When the Constitution is suspended and our government isn’t using it for guidance to the rule of law, then I no longer feel bound to those rules, and a social check is in order, even mandated. Now I am supportive of a government trying to help people when disaster strikes, but in the end with this Covid-19 virus, many governors and mayors have gone well beyond the CDC guidelines recommended at the federal level and abuse has been quite obnoxious. The danger should be quite clear to everyone, emergency powers suspending the Constitution without any clear resolution is a dangerous place to be, and that is something we all need to deal with.

Suddenly unelected pill pushers are in charge of our economy and have forced President Trump to play a bad game of relying on them for his salvation, and our own Constitutional rights. We are living presently in a world where checkpoints on our highways are in place, we are being monitored for public safety, even forced to self-quarantine should we be shown to be a risk factor to the society at large—and constantly everywhere we are being told by government that we are all in this together. Well, no we’re not, I do not accept being compelled into the same lunacy as this government has fallen under, and if there is no Constitution, then there is no law. Compliance to a government that has lost its way is not some mandate that we must all be sheep moving in a herd like a bunch of idiots and what we have witnessed has changed my thoughts on government forever. I’ve always been weary of it, but what I have seen in the last month over a viral outbreak that is really an aggressive form of pneumonia is the kind of stuff that starts wars. My only real hope in the matter is that Trump will spin all this around on his attackers. There are several avenues I can see where this can be done, but it should have never come to this. If there is a silver lining, I supposed it’s good that having Trump in the White House forced the planners of this reaction to the next virus to hit the waves to play their card now instead of a few years down the road.

President Trump has been a good president, but he got suckered on this one, the doctors told him to shut down the economy otherwise every death on the meter would be blamed on him. Then he was told by those same doctors that if he opened the economy too early, then every death would be blamed on him. They pinned him in a corner and his only play is to let their overreactions to models show how they overstepped and to hit them in hindsight. But the suspension of the Constitution, compelling General Motors to comply to being taken over by the state, a 2 trillion dollar bailout where government stuck its noses into all our lives causing massive financial failures is not OK. And we can see now how door to door searches would look, because they are happening now in minor ways, soon to be elevated based on the success. Government has pressed us to see what they can get away with and so far, we’ve been too compliant—which was a bet they were willing to make based on Google analytics and Facebook data collection. Trump is still a good president, but if he sends troops to my community, that for me is a challenge to take our government back from the clutches of these losers, not to comply with more orders.

My life is not to be surrendered to the stupidity of government bureaucrats, and I am not all in it together with lazy people who could care less. Government is there to make sure the courts run, that the highways get paved, and to keep order. They are not there to be our kings and emperors, and if they view their first role to protect people then they have opened up a definition that could easily lead to tyranny, because every action could be viewed by some timid soul to be dangerous. If a president that I have supported gets suckered into a bad deal, like what is happening over Coronavirus, then it is not my obligation to go down with the ship. The Constitution is what it is, it’s not to be suspended under ill-defined emergency orders as viewed by flawed individuals drunk with power. Check points and house arrests are too far for me. I do not trust state or federal government to make decisions on my life, especially of this magnitude. I am happy to wash my hands not to spread a virus, even to separate from others to not pass it around, but the destruction of an economy I’m proud of, and to tell me to stay inside—the government people are doing government work, just isn’t acceptable.

Regardless of what happens on April 30th, this government has lost my confidence in it to behave properly and do what it must do to advance American interests. I will still work to re-elect President Trump, but honestly it’s the whole system that bothers me, it’s a Democrat House that would even attempt to paint him in a corner with a death count and a media that would resort to such low tactics that shows me no matter who we elect that they will not respect the kind of America I have been fighting for, and that means that things probably need to get messy. We have seen this kind of hysteria over the #metoo movement, except when Joe Biden is involved, we see this over so many issues, why would anybody think otherwise when a virus is politicized to destroy America from those who truly hate it and those of us who want to preserve it. I’m not going to just sit around and let that happen. If they want a fight, well, then let’s have it. But I’ll say this, we are not all in this together. I am not participating in the kind of America they want just as they have refused to participate in the one I represent. They should know better, but joining their vision isn’t an option, and taking away our society and everything we love isn’t going to break us like some horse. I view this reaction to the Covid-19 virus shutdown as an assault and it has changed the way I will deal with government in the future. That is for sure.

The Liberalized Coronavirus: Its all about state budgets and election year politics

Then there is the day after this virus outbreak is over, and it’s quite clear that the nation’s governors, both Republican and Democrat do not want that day to come soon. They are enjoying the attention, the daily press conferences, the chance to go on television and talk. To be a hero every day and talk like they are perpetually campaigning. However, the bills in their states are not getting paid, but the demands have not gone away. The size of government is going to be a real problem for them once this all ends, which it should have already. While I’m not going to be shy about calling bullshit on this viral attack and the purpose of it, I will also say that the threat of me being wrong went away about two weeks ago when the CDC had to start walking back the death toll.

There was a slow transition from that story to the number of sheer cases that would overflow the hospitals, which is a thinly veiled promotion of a need of government healthcare. But even that is thinning out. Instead its becoming more and more obvious that the state governors are sticking to the flattening the curve story because once people realize that is a bunch of bullshit too, someone is going to have to pay for all this, and the states have not been collecting money, because nobody is working and spending money. That is a big problem for their state budgets. While the federal government can print all the money it wants, states must balance their budgets and this whole Coronavirus thing has blown that requirement up.

Some of the most psycho states that have over-reacted to the Covid-19 virus particularly Illinois and California are obviously poising their post virus world for a government handout using this virus to cover the fact that their states were headed to bankruptcy. Even cities like Cincinnati are poised to use this virus as the excuse for their financial failures which were well in place before the news media started making Covid-19 the poster child for zero emissions forcing everyone off the roads and to hide in their homes to get close to it and save the earth from mankind—in their distorted view of reality. Covid-19 for them was like a snow day for the college kids who partied all weekend then on Sunday night tried to cram for a test only to learn on Monday that the college was on lockdown and nobody knew when it might open again. Most of the radical states and cities who were underwater in their budgets couldn’t pay their bills had nothing to lose in following the orders of the state governors and the president, even going further than necessary to put on a good show, because it was their ticket to a federal bailout that might wipe their slate clean. But that doesn’t erase the problem, the federal government can’t bail out everyone. The amount of money they will be looking for will far exceed the $2 trillion package that was just passed, but its their only shot at solving their original problem. They plan to overdramatize this virus outbreak to hide their own fiscal irresponsibility. Mayor Cranley in Cincinnati is already announcing layoffs to drive the point home forcing the state to bail out all the government workers left hanging on the vine and once that happens, the mayors and governors will be able to say, “I was only following the orders of my president.”

Most of the liberal governors already were ready to do extreme things for climate change, the dog whistle was already coming from Bill Gates and other radical leftists for years, so stopping all economic activity was a chance to cheer for the activists who want to destroy the means of mankind and walk everyone back to a primitive state in order to save their cherished mother earth with the zero emission push. Of course, those radical groups used this virus to sell that concept. We all know it takes around 21 days to change a behavior, so an international lockdown of about that period of time will hopefully make people less addicted to using their cars to go out to dinner every day, and it introduces the concept to lots of young people the idea of a universal wage, giving out government checks that are larger for a few weeks than the wages their employers would give them—which hurts companies that are part of that carbon footprint on Bill Gates’ graph challenging the goal of a zero emission society. Then of course promoting healthcare workers in the way they are and crying for hospital beds and ventilators are the way to plant the seeds for socialized medicine. This whole Coronavirus outbreak has not been about the danger of actual deaths, but in changing human behavior toward liberal causes. And by default, it has tied all of us to the end result of desiring to get everything running again, together. It is at that time that we might agree to tax increases to pay for the bailouts of all the bankrupt states that can’t pay their police, their teachers, their BMV workers—everyone. They plan to slow down all government activity with a lack of workers to frustrate everyone into giving them whatever amount of money they can get their hands on and they’ll blame this virus for the need. Of course, higher taxes are the biggest thing that liberals want out of the Coronavirus. The money will have to come from somewhere and that is going to be their next move.

You must learn dear reader that these types of people do not function in the same reality as everyone else. They will at every opportunity seek to take advantage of the good nature of people in general to advance a political agenda, and as you can see, there are a lot of them attached to this Covid-19 outbreak. Of course, they put Trump in a position they controlled when they said to him that millions of people were going to die in America. He had to act. He’s trying to walk it back now in an election year where fake news is trying to say through polling that Joe Biden is actually ahead of him for the presidential election. We’re talking about a world where the liberal minded now run Fox News and will fire Trish Regan for essentially saying on television what I’ve been saying, but they’ll promote Donna Brazile. The war has been going on for a long time and the budgets were threatening to destroy all the liberal governors, and now all those issues have been put on the back burner to make way for this Coronavirus which has touched the behavior of almost every American in a very intimate way. They have been all trying to set up Trump in the election year any way they can. And they are planning to use this Coronavirus to blame all their massive layoffs on him until they get a bailout of their state and that is the next battle to come, which will take up every bit the same amount of news cycle time during the election as Coronavirus has. People often can’t see all these elements because they don’t look at the picture as big as they need to, but the liberal engine of radical advancement of many ideas was hatched under a desire to promote zero emissions blaming it on a viral outbreak, but the budget demands of bankruptcy gave an added benefit which is what the current story on the days after are all going to be about. For the political left, this Covid-19 is their grand fortissimo of the Kavanaugh hearings, the impeachment trial, Stormy Daniels, the Russian Dossier, and the mass FBI cover-up with the DOJ all wrapped up into one epic story of collapsed state budgets because the President was trying to contain a virus that was never really a threat. And they hope this one knocks him out of office where the other things didn’t.  April 30th is a long way off, too long, and the political players know it.
