“Operation Varsity Blues” is only the tip of the Iceberg

I think personally it’s a crime to be born a human being and not to develop your mind to the furthest extent that you can. And the concept of college was intended to do that. But I have never felt that the college experience was productive or even fruitful in what it was supposed to do. I would generously call the entire education system across the world to be a gross example of mismanagement. I work with highly educated people every day, but one thing that they all have in common who I would consider good is that their educations were not limited to the classroom, but were part of their daily life and continued far after they graduated. The college experience might have obtained for them a job higher up the ladder than people without the college degree but the will to education was a lifelong experience, not something that was purchased then kept for the rest of their lives. And that is the problem at the heart of this massive college scandal titled “Operation Varsity Blues” where the ring leader William Singer led the way in bribing colleges in various ways to get their kids into elite schools. Mindless actresses and other members of the Hollywood community, such as Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were openly cheating the system to get their ungrateful children into schools just for the ability of having talking points to discuss in their social circles. Obviously, nobody cared about actually getting an education, they just wanted the title of an elite school next to their child’s name. And that attitude is really at the heart of the problem, for the schools and the idiots who pay so much money to send their kids there. I would say that the entire college experience is a scam these days, a worthless journey into liberal instruction that does far more damage to a young mind than it does for good and I base that on personal observation and experience.

I have never been a fan of the college experience. I lived on the campus of the University of Cincinnati for several years and had several friends who were in the fraternities and were able to see what those experiences were really about up close. I went to college because everyone told me I had to in order to get a good job, and I challenged that all the way entering each class with a mind toward how stupid the whole set-up was. So to say the least, I thought the entire college experience was dumb, and slow. I couldn’t wait to get as far away from it as possible. The entire system relied on neurotic parents who have failed their children all through their childhoods to believe that by sending their kids to college with extraordinary entrance fees and tuition that they can buy their way into the category of good parenting and in general our social system has supported that false belief. Most often the kids going to college only do so to get away from their parents and to have the experience of partying. And the parents really just want to brag to their peers about what a good parent they were because they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars sending their children to a school with a great reputation.

I had the occasion not so long ago to attend an alum experience at the University of Cincinnati involving the Bearcat basketball team and I was not impressed. It largely consisted of older people reflecting on their youth as they attended the university and their sentiments were etched into time as loyalty to the institution of the college, not what they learned while attending. Any successful person will declare honestly that it takes a lot more work than just a college education to do well in life. All the college experience was doing for people was establishing themselves in a pecking order artificially created by below the line people to tell the world they were paying money to be above the line, a kind of fake it until you make it mentality. I saw the entire alum experience to be no different from the kind of people who attend science fiction conventions and spend all their time playing board games. The experience itself was meaningless, it was the social aspect of it that gave meaning to the participants who largely lacked personal courage needing the approval of others to function.

And that is at the core of this massive college scandal. I would not be surprised to find that all this is only the tip of the iceberg, that many more such scandals are happening every day. Public schools cheat all the time to get their test scores up for their students because federal money is tied to those performance standards—and the unions must have their money. So it shouldn’t be a surprise to nobody that the same cheating culture finds its way into the college world. Everyone is literally in on the game so most of our society is guilty of playing. Lori Loughlin was a terrible, but very typical parent. You can tell in her kids who are destined as a result of that parenting to be losers all their life. All Lori cared about was being able to tell her friends in social circles that her children were going to the best schools. She couldn’t care less what her kids learned there, or even if they would be successful as a result, Loughlin only cared that people believed she cared, and she would have spent any amount of money she had in the world to prove it—just as most parents do.

It’s the same old belief that people have about raising children, they waste their kid’s lives through the first 18 years believing that this school or another, public, private, or college will do great things for their children and that money will do the work they should have been doing as parents. And that never turns out to be the case. If you suck as a parent your kids will suck as adults. End of story. No school can do the job of parenting and that is the real crime of this story. It was the belief that money could buy a title with a school’s name next to that and success in life for a child would occur magically and without effort. That’s how stupid most people are about the college experience and the schools themselves are more than happy to run the scam front and to take the money. In most cases they are only the new breed of snake oil salesmen selling the belief in good health but nothing of any real content.

When I told some of my recent overman stories about how to view life correctly and with authenticity, I had a terrible time with family members and peers when my own children became college aged. I was worried that college would ruin them, and did not encourage them to go even though it put me at odds with most everyone I cared about at the time. I see colleges as dangerous to intellectual development and they certainly aren’t committed to education. In the condition they are in now, they are just a massive scam that needs to be exposed. The problem goes far beyond Operation Varsity Blues, its at the core of our entire culture and the time is here to reevaluate that relationship. You can’t cheat the world with money or fake commitment. You have to be above the line in even your most intimate thoughts and if you really want success, you have to be an authentic personality. Public acceptances get you nothing but an invite to a neighborhood block party and a lot of wasted time talking to people who aren’t worth the air that comes from their mouths while conversing. And that is the lesson we should all learn from this latest, but not the last college scandal.

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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We May Have to Fight Socialism with Deadly Force–H.R.8 shows just how radical our current government is

So why in the hell would we ever give up any gun rights to a government as corrupt as this one. Just look at the news and what most establishment figures are trying to do to President Trump and his family just because he won an election. And he’s on the front page of every news outlet in the world, so he’s high profile enough to warrant good judgment against such an action. However, the truth of an out of control government is obvious in their hatred and radicalism in how they are treating him. That same House of Representatives during a circus week of the Michael Cohen testimony passed a gun bill which was an extreme overreach by that same corrupt government. We have to remember that the entire reason Cohen was there to testify was because the government kicked down his door in search of a crime and what they did find they pushed to jail him for 3 years for which he is presently seeking relief from prosecutors. To my view of things based on not only the Federal Constitution, but the Ohio Constitution from which I live, Cohen should have defended himself during that break in with a firearm because the government was abusing his individual rights. So it is laughable that the same government passed their H.R.8 legislation that has been brewing for a long time, and that they passed it with no media coverage in the middle of the Cohen testimony.

The Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives passed what they’re optimistically calling a universal background check bill. But there’s much more to HR 8 than just mandated FFL transfers.

The bill would also ban handgun sales to adults under 21 years old, allow for unlimited transfer fees, and criminalize handing a firearm to another person while shooting outside a designated range.

https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2019/02/daniel-zimmerman/house-passes-hr-8-bill-that-would-outlaws-private-gun-sales/

My comment to all the elements of H.R.8 is that it is a laughable overreach by a government that doesn’t respect us as people. Who the hell cares what a bunch of loser liberal legislators think about the “safety” of people? These are the death dealers who support the open murder of millions of babies right out of a mother’s womb, and support the poisoning of the American people by legalizing drugs and supporting open borders allowing drug traffickers easy access to American markets. They certainly aren’t qualified to determine whether or not any of us can transfer a gun to a neighbor or family member. Guns are more needed than ever to keep corrupt elements of radical liberals from intruding into our lives more than they do now. What congress proposed in H.R.8 is simply reprehensible. Lucky for us in the short-term, President Trump will veto this bill and those like it. But what about a day when he doesn’t sit in the Oval Office? In those days its likely that we’ll need guns of all kinds to fight off a government that seriously desires to overreach their mandate and control every aspect of our lives, and we can’t have that in any aspect.

Listen to the idiocy of what some of these newly elected radicals are saying they want to do to us from a congressional perspective. During the Obama administration he experimented with attracting radical cells of people from other countries that immigrated into the United States in large numbers which actually allowed them to get elected into congress with legitimate voting. I have no problem with legal immigration methods, but the people coming better be ready to accept the rules of living in America and not seek to change the nature of it to reflect the garbage they came from. Its nothing new, but what is, is their admission to it, but these congress people are openly advocating for socialism and that is something that we all have to fight with deadly force—because what they are talking about is the confiscation of private property and the redistribution of it to those unworthy—who did not earn it, which is a gross violation to everything American law is supposed to represent. The very foundation of the American Constitution is to protect private property and secure individual rights. Not to surrender those things to the “greater good” as defined by radicals who managed to get themselves elected into government.

Clearly the intent of most American Constitutions at the level of the states and of course in the Bill of Rights of the federal government is that guns are there to shut down a corrupt government and replace it with something else and given the behavior of this current congress, I would say that we are at that point. As long as we can stop them with President Trump’s veto pen, we can still trust the law. But the moment Trump isn’t in office then we need guns to fight off the government which has become hostile and extremely corrupt. That isn’t the talk of radicalism, but sense as dictated by the laws of our country. Nobody cares about the transfer of gun rights and background checks, especially under circumstances of war. Guns are there for the days when the law fails, and when the government is kicking down the doors of political rivals to leverage election results into the favor of hostile congresses then its time to use guns to preserve liberty, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Radical leftists in congress do not get to use the law to gain power but then to use the law to protect themselves from the consequences. They cannot manipulate their way into office, gain power, then expect nobody to twist the law as a counter measure to repeal their hostile actions. Only in this case, using guns as a measure of individual defense of private property isn’t a twist of the law, but a mandate. But when it becomes obvious that the intent of their actions is hostility and conquest, then violence is the next step behind a breakdown of the law. The congressional approval of H.R.8 is a hostile act and the law as proposed under any condition of intention is a violation of American rights. The same government that kicked in the door of President Trump’s personal lawyer to squeeze him into revealing a crime, any crime, that might remove the president from office is the same government that is attempting to say that they must conduct a background check on the sale of a firearm to anybody. Or how any individual can use that gun away from a target range. And that’s not how things work folks. That government is the reason we need guns. They don’t get to legislate our defense from them. They can’t have it both ways, they don’t get the power to intrude on people’s lives and the legal means to protect themselves from the ramifications of their aggression. That concept is absurd, not even in the realm of possibility.

Context is everything and under normal conditions gun owners should enjoy their use of guns, go to the target range and shoot them, and trade them among each other for the fun and liberty of the sport. But under all that action is the necessity to use guns as a last resort for when the law fails and governments must be replaced by force into a body of functional governance. The failed government does not have the right to decide who gets to have a gun and for those who do, how they use it. That is not how the rules work and we should all be insulted that H.R.8 was even given enough merit to put a pen to paper. It’s an insult to us all and the ramifications of that insult have not yet been communicated properly to the perpetrators involved in the most heinous crime of all, the intrusion of individual liberty and desire to suppress all of mankind for the whimsical power grabs of the political left.

No, We Don’t Have a Shortage of Teachers–we need to rethink the whole concept

I keep hearing this nonsense about the teaching profession, that there is a shortage of them and that we need to throw more money at them to keep people wanting to enter the field. Here’s the deal, they aren’t worth the money. What a physical teacher in public schools is producing these days are little Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez types and Bernie Sanders supporters. What public schools are teaching children is far more dangerous than a shortage of people to teach it. And that is what must be made clear when talking about education funding and the employees who occupy the profession. Lately there have been too many labor strikes across the nation which has fed off this perceived shortage and school boards have done nothing to stop it but throw money at the hostile agents, the teachers themselves. The labor unions have destroyed the profession during the 20th Century and it will never come back to anything useful, so why continue to toil over it. Education doesn’t have to be a stuffy teacher standing in front of a class. And its in options that the real answer resides as to how any educated society will function in the future.

Many people on the union side of the education argument think that because I don’t support the current model of education that I am anti-education. Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, I may be one of the most education advocates on planet earth. I consider everything an education and I continue to believe that reading and video games are keys to the future of all education. Kids who learn to learn and to keep learning throughout their lives will be properly functioning adults and that was always the purpose of any education measures that countries put forth to deal with the need to educate their societies. Any advanced society needs to have an educated population, but what are the best ways to achieve such a thing?

This idea of a centralized teaching system that people leave their homes to be instructed by a unionized worker is ridiculously stupid. What has been taught has been proven quite audaciously to be destructive to the intellect of individuals and poorly prepared them even for basic necessities in life. In many cases public education destroys people forever sending them on a path of internal psychological destruction for the rest of their lives. So why would we scramble to hire more teachers and lure them into the field? That doesn’t make any sense. The truth about public education is that we have propped it up to make ourselves feel better that as parents we are too lazy to care for our children directly, so we pawn them off to the government to act as baby sitters while we conduct our lives as miserable messes climbing the ladder of our professions, having affairs that prove to be useless sexual fulfillments, and stuffing our faces with garbage at sports bars lobbying others to pass school levies so that we can feel that while we act as lazy slobs in society, our kids are being taken care of in the schools. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I have been asked by many people to run for the school board of my local school system to leverage these out of control costs with real management. But the problem is that there isn’t any management allowed. The typical school board member has no choice but to say yes to the ridiculous demands of their teaching employees otherwise they walk off the job and suddenly the parents of the district doesn’t have their baby sitters. So the pressure mounts after a couple of days and a school board has no choice but to cave to the demands. That is what has been happening across the country in all the labor strikes by teachers. The myth that they are in short supply gets passed around and when the are not around to babysit the busy parents of the school system, the desire to do the right thing flies right out the window. I personally think the whole system needs to be abolished, not further funded. That’s not to say that education is not a priority, but clearly the government should not be involved. Rather the parents need to shoulder that responsibility and the penalties of law should be transferred from the school to the parents. If a household raises stupid children, then it is they who should be penalized. I couldn’t in good conscience support the public-school model as a school board member because I think the system as it is should be abolished and much more competitive options introduced. But the real problem behind public education is that parents are too lazy to do it themselves these days and that is the devastating truth. We have made public education a center piece of our society, most people can’t see any other way of obtaining an education so other options are never entertained leaving us to continue doing the insanity of the same thing over and over again generation after generation.

We have built this myth up that the teaching profession is contributing to a better world and we have encouraged people to go into that profession without understanding the consequences. By the time a young student completes their college courses on how to teach they have become unnecessarily liberalized themselves and are expected to teach a state sponsored curriculum that is entirely too left leaning. The core of the issue is the notion of being dependent on others as opposed to individuality and being a good person. We are all taught that goodness is in collective endeavors, not in individual ones, that the path to success in life is in cooperation and sacrifice, which are all proven to be falsehoods. The teacher who advocates such things is actually destroying the ability of those individual students to think for themselves for the rest of their lives. It’s why they grow up to be parents ill-equipped to teach their own kids, and why they seek out baby sitters to care for their children instead of taking the responsibility to do the work themselves, because it was taught out of them from the beginning. And we have even went so far to call such people who teach “heroes” as if they were doing something of great social benefit. No, they are pretty useless to the real aims of education.

My position is that even if the teaching profession were cheap, which it isn’t, that it isn’t worth the destruction it provides directly to our children. Learning the wrong kind of things is far worse than not learning them at all and the burden of education needs to return back to the American family, not the state. That is a far cry from where we are today as a society, but nonetheless, that is the only real future of education. That is not to say that children shouldn’t learn to interact with the world at large, but human beings need their family structures to properly develop their minds which continue to gestate for 18 years outside the womb of a mother. The mind of children is incredibly fragile and we are kidding ourselves that the state sponsored unionized education is a proper method of making an intelligent electorate. Just one look at the young people coming out of public education tells us everything we need to know and its time to admit that it hasn’t been working, not for a long time. And if we want to have kids properly educated, we need to consider new options that are centered around their parental structures, and not the state.

Liberals and their Dumb Trains

I personally love trains, especially the high speed type. For a few weeks in 2018 I lived in Canterbury, England had was very appreciative of their train system. My wife and I used it heavily to get back and forth from London and we even took the Eurostar at nearly 200 mph into Paris. Trains are good in Europe, but I never had any illusions about them, they are not superior to personal automobiles and airplanes, not by a long shot. The reason I enjoyed the trains in Europe was because the roads were so small and that most of the activity is centered into their metropolitan areas. The cars in Europe as a result are too small and the personal autonomy of transportation is much neglected. So if you are in Europe and want to get somewhere, or even in the orient, trains are great. But there is nothing like transportation in the United States with big cars, big highways, and lots of things to do between cities. However, liberals have an obsession with high-speed rail. It’s no mystery as to why, being liberals, they believe in centralized control so the European setup is very appealing to them. But it will never work in America even among those with liberal sensibilities because our culture is too autonomous for them. Nobody wants to ride on a slow train and sit next to other people if they don’t have to. When given a choice, people want to do their own thing and they don’t want to share space with other people. That is the natural state of all human beings.

Way back when I first started this blog site the debate over placing a street car into downtown Cincinnati was all the rage and I predicted back then that if they did build it, that nobody would ride it. I saw it the other day operating and it was mostly empty, and it was terribly slow. I walked faster than it moved. It was very embarrassing, even though I knew people wouldn’t ride the thing, I wanted to be wrong. Several years ago before it opened I had a nice conversation with an elderly couple at The Museum Center reminiscing about the street cars that were in Cincinnati long ago and they were eager to see their return. We spoke at the exhibit in the History part of the museum where they had an old street car on display, it was part of a time during their courtship and they thought of them in romantic terms, where people dressed in fedora hats, women wore skirts that went past their knees and people treated each other respectfully while reading the paper while traveling. I could relate, I love the western expansion era and the morality of the gunslingers of the old west of 1870, but I’m not about to trade in a 400 HP car for a single horse either. Science is great. I am not looking backward except to learn from history. The trains of the past can stay there.

To many it is a mystery as to why liberals want trains instead of automobiles and airplanes and of course the easy answer is that they want to push people out of the suburbs and into cities controlled by Democrats. They want to tax gasoline and suburban lifestyles to the point where people flock into the cities to live again, where trains will make transportation easy and centralized. That is what the OTR project in Cincinnati was all about, to create a hipster paradise of communal good and culture—a liberal’s dream. But the reality is far from it, people like space if they can get it, and they want to use that space quickly. They don’t want to sit next to other people if they don’t have to and they don’t want to talk to them if it can be avoided. The push by people into the suburbs of America is essentially to get away from liberals who are always trying to stick their noses into everyone’s business and if those liberals violate private property barriers, they may get shot. People enjoy their natural autonomy, something that isn’t offered in Europe or Asia. But in America personal freedom is king, and it always will be now that people have tasted it. That genie cannot be put back into the bottle, as much as Democrats would love to.

The future of transportation is air travel clearly. Trains are too slow, transportation into space will bring continents together like never before making oversea trips take an hour instead of 12. And if something like a train is desired, it will be the Hyperloop, where 200 MPH would be considered slow. City to city travel on a Hyperloop could travel up to 1000 MPH and could largely be underground to avoid complicated zoning problems. That is the way to connect San Francisco to Los Angeles, or L.A. to Las Vegas, by Hyperloop, not high-speed rail. Like I reported, the Eurostar in France was great, and speedy. But it’s still old technology, now easily outdated. There are better and faster ways to get around and if given options, people will use them. A Hyperloop between Paris and London would take less than an hour. Sure you wouldn’t get to see the wonderful French countryside while journeying, but so what. Liberals think that they could duplicate that experience of traveling through California’s farmland but the problem is unlike in France which had just recently been conquered by Germany during World War II, farmers in the states don’t want to give up their land for a stupid train. In France they didn’t mind nearly so much, because they were essentially a conquered people, making all these trains built not so intrusive when compared to German troops in the not so distant past.

If there was ever proof that liberalism is stuck in some archaic mindset it is in their embrace of such ridiculous concepts such as mass transit trains as any kind of solution to modern transportation challenges. Their insistence on these train projects and internal city street cars demonstrates how little they know about human needs and how radical they are in changing what they do. Liberals represented in America by Democrats don’t like the way people are and they want to change them, that is all they care to do about anything. Train travel is an artificial constraint on the autonomy of people, and in the kind of managed societies that liberals crave, with them in charge of course, travel by rail is very attractive. But only for them, certainly not for the consumer. In an age where everything is getting faster, liberals are insistent on slowing down which is making them much less relevant by the day. With my firsthand experience listening to them speak so glowingly about train travel demonstrates just how vast their ignorance on the subject really is. I said it about the street car in Cincinnati many years ago and I’ll say it again about any form of high-speed rail now, the concept is dead. Only leaps in technology is something to be embraced, tech like the Hyperloop and personal space travel are even options that hold any kind of financial significance. And that reality is something that no Democrat is ready to deal with, which of course puts them on the outside looking in.

Liberals Should Consider Themselves Lucky

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

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

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

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

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

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