The Funeral of George H. W. Bush: It was a lot like the movie Soylent Green

The funeral of Bush 41 I thought was nice. I always liked George Bush the senior, and the younger, 43 as he is often termed—as people. But I do not think they were very good presidents, at least in the way I would expect out of a Republican in the White House. But I didn’t dislike them, although I remember very well how much the media did. So I shared with many the observations that the media was all too friendly toward George Bush in his death, very much contrary to what they had been during his life. That of course provoked the question as to why. As odd as it was to see the Trumps sitting with the Obamas and the Clintons and to even have Jimmy Carter there as well it was also institutionally satisfying, and it was good that President Trump attended and said nice things along the way. But the invisible strings of conformity that stirred about the entire event reminded me an awful lot of the old movie Soylent Green. Through life the people are harvested as commodities of the state, but upon their death they were ushered into the afterlife with warm music and revelry before being eaten by society itself.

The aspects of the Bush funeral which I fundamentally disagree with, and which the press and seemingly everyone celebrated was that the former president was a sacrificial person who gave his life to service for others, and now that he was no longer a threat to the order of things as a Republican, it was OK to honor him. All the attributes that were celebrated mostly are concepts that are anti-individual and pro collectivist which is the subtle undertone to the entire exercise. The message to all other Republicans by the press, the not so subtle part of their message was that if you want to be liked by the media, then the attributes of George Bush that involved self-sacrifice, service and humility are the way to get there. While those traits are largely Christian tenants of value, that doesn’t mean that the old foe of Marxism isn’t present. To understand that idea you have to understand European history and the role that the Catholic Church played on controlling so many people’s lives, in a very negative way. Then you’d have to know that Karl Marx desired to exploit that inbreed trait into the targets of his philosophy work so much inspired by Immanuel Kant. To focus thoughts on others is the way to eternal redemption. To focus on yourself is the way of the evil vices of capitalism!

George Bush was a rich man who inherited a lot of money from his father and sought to dispel the guilt that a Marxist leaning society injected upon him with service in the military, then in government for much of his life. He wanted very much to be a good man and he was, unfortunately the way that good was defined for him meant that he needed to be a collectivist. So his great wealth created a paradox for him and his extended family that was deliberately hard to negotiate. The minefield however was set up by the institutional culture for which the media represents. Their value system is subservience to the needs of the machine, sacrifice and honor as determined by the amount of sacrifice an individual makes toward the institutions they occupy.

This institutional element has become much more pronounced now in the age of Trump because so many of them are coming unraveled, and it is the source of the hatred of the current President. The odd exchange of the Trumps sitting down next to law breakers and social reformers hell-bent on taking society toward infinite collectivism was a clash of ideas that were unavoidable, yet they were brought together out of respect for a presidency that is the lead seat of American institutionalism looked at in entirely different ways. The paradox was revealed in the life of George Bush as his son George W. Bush conducted the eulogy of his father’s life and what a great job he did. While summarizing the merits of such a sacrificial being he managed to paint a picture of quite an interesting character who still sky dived late in his life and loved to watch cop dramas on television. For me I found those aspects appealing. To the institutionalists it was the sacrifice. But everyone was generally brought together by some notion of a recently deceased American president.

The media in this case are the institutional representatives that look at the life of all conservatives as bacteria in the body of collective experience. But anybody familiar with biology knows that bacteria is a useful element, its villainy is purely relative. The media hated the Bush family because they were Republicans but as the country grew away from that kind of conservative thought, the public has grown tired of the media. It was an odd thing to hear Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple lecture the world that any form of hate had no place on their platforms. As much as I love Apple products—and I do, and I know Rush Limbaugh does as well, clearly Tim Cook would view my support of the Second Amendment and liberal activism as hate speech and is suggesting that I’m not welcome to the company. But it’s not lost on me that most people who call themselves liberals, especially the creative types, use Apple as their primary functionary to interact with cyberspace. And most of them participate in hate speech. I have no doubt that if a survey of ANTIFA members were taken as to what phone system they used most it would be Apple if they could actually afford the product. Is Apple as a company talking to them?

The harassment of the Bush family by the media over all the years created Donald Trump. George W. Bush and his dad and brother took a terrible beating needlessly by just the same kind of people who tend to buy Apple products, the Hollywood left, the media culture, the hipsters and saggy assed getto thugs, the drug mules who cross the border then claim that America owes them something as illegal immigrants. It was their collective ooze for which the media pronounced was civil conduct and once George Bush the senior was laid to rest, it was OK to pay respect to him in that sacrificed state, as an essence of life to be consumed by the masses, a throw back to the days before there was a Donald Trump in the White House, rather than the man who loved his wife dearly and was a damn good father to his kids. There is a lot very evil about the process, the way that all the good things about George H. W. Bush were punished and all the bad things about him adored. It was quite an interesting paradox which comes from a society that has a schizophrenic relationship with itself. It was very clear to me, that the institutions of our modern life values death and consumption far more than productivity and effort. And that is the hard lesson that was very much on full display at the funeral of the 41st President of the United States.

The Decline of Groupthink: Lakota schools, Stormy “horseface” Daniels, and Leslie Stahl getting her ass handed to her

That article I wrote previously about the V.I.P. pass at the Trump rally in Lebanon had to be done to set up something far more sinister in need of explanation. It’s at the center of everything we are dealing with presently and is at the heart of how evil is spread across the world. It starts with little innocent things and ends with truly tragic circumstances and is something we’ll have to really fix as a civilization before we can truly Make America Great Again. When we talk about “again,” there was a time when Americans had it together. Unfortunately, we didn’t have yet the status of the world’s most powerful economy to match it, and it didn’t last more than a few years before ancient grudges and social traditions jealously conspired to make themselves the center of attention again. But when it is asked why people love Donald J. Trump so much and why he feels he must do what he did after he won a lawsuit against Stormy Daniels by calling her “horseface” it is this kind of corrosive thinking that Trump has been fighting and people who are smart and aware of it see the possibility of such a person sitting in the White House and what he can do for the kind of American swagger that most of us crave to have—except for the people who want the opposite, like that lady in the media I had previously discussed. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. You could see all this on full display when President Trump gave an interview recently to 60 Minutes where he skewered Leslie Stahl rather unceremoniously by letting her know that she, or nobody else in the media was the president. He was.

Lakota schools had one of their “community conversations” hosted by the progressive Jeff Stec to discuss school safety. This is one of those expensive consensus building activities that they are conducting in that public establishment to avoid what the Trump administration has proposed, and that is the arming of teachers to make them first responders in case a gunman attacks one of the 22 buildings in the district. Lakota has a math problem, they have only hired 19-armed security personnel to protect kids which means the resource officers have to rotate around to cover all the schools. A potential gunman won’t know where they will be or when, so that type of risk is considered appropriate to the gun hating administrators at Lakota who think its more important to continue their position of weakening the Second Amendment, ignoring President Trump, and holding the entire education system to the kind of learning that causes much of this mess for the benefit of their political affiliations. Jeff Stec’s specialty is in consensus building exercises, what we have called in the past The Delphi Technique. After years and years of this type of consensus building we as human beings arrive at what we accept as a reality. The media of course maintains that reality and people growing up in our society have three typical choices coming out of the government education system and arriving into adulthood, as its designed now. They can join the military, they can join college or they can dig ditches or other manual labor jobs that offer little prestige socially. All those traditions involve some means of breaking down individual thought and processing people into a kind of group think. Some people fall through the cracks and become people like Donald Trump, but they often don’t arrive so late in life so confident and able to function independently. That is why the media despises Trump so much, because they see their job as maintaining that social order, not rebelling against it. Yet Trump’s movement is all about freeing people from that process so a tremendous amount of resentment is forming along the social norms of our culture. Leslie Stahl represented the social norm, President Trump was supposed to play the timid office holder that was about to lose his majorities in the House and Senate, so he was supposed to play nice. Instead he gave them the opposite.

Anyway, back to Lakota, under Jeff Stec’s leadership groups formed of 5 to 6 to meet and discuss ideas and questions for the moderator, in this case Stec, to discuss with the whole audience of about 55 people. The people in the group were students, board members and those with children in the schools. There were a few citizens from outside those social groups as well, but not many. By the time all the talk had occurred, only 4 or 5 people favored guns on teachers while the rest of the group was against the idea. Therefor Jeff Stec’s “community conversation” could then report that Lakota schools was against the arming of teachers as this statistical sampling suggested. But of course, there is more at work here than just talking to people and taking a vote, and it shows up in how the media does polling, such as the many mistakes they make in regard to President Trump. When human beings become socialized they are reluctant to act outside the parameters of group acceptance. For instance, if 7 people go out to eat together individuals will be more inclined to behave as the group does than what their personal preferences may suggest. Maybe two of them aren’t hungry at all and are on a diet, but the other five are getting large meals with a soda or a mixed drink. The other two are going to be inclined to break their diet so they can actively participate in the group activity. They do not want to do anything that might make them isolated from the group with too much individualized input which might cause them to be castigated. That is how consensus building happens and it is the method of the Democratic Party, and has been for most of this past century. We learn the methods in our government school system then spend the rest of our lives typically trying to escape from it, mostly without any success. That is until a Donald Trump comes into our life and inspires us to think for ourselves again.

That is what the media is struggling to do with Trump, put him on his heels and make him that lone voice that nobody wants to listen to. They isolate individuals from the group so that they can control them emotionally. That’s what happened to Bill O’Reilly on Fox News and even Alex Jones, they were removed from the warm blanket of public approval by having their content banned either for sexual harassment accusations, much like was attempted with Brett Kavanaugh, or they were edited by their conduct against the social norm. Just this past week I had a similar experience. I get good numbers on my blog, but for well over five or six years I have been banned by all the social media sites. I don’t care because I write so much that it gets out anyway, but it happens often. Well, this week I saw just to how much of an extent. The systems that shadow ban me went down for about 45 minutes and in that time, I had 400 hits on my homepage from search engine results in that duration. As soon as the system was back up, those numbers dropped off the map completely and were back to normal, about 20 to 30 per hour. Again, just like in the consensus building of Jeff Stec, or the motivations of the media, or the shadow banning by the big tech companies, their goal is to shape the public toward a social norm that they set.

When Trump said to Leslie Stahl that she was not president, this is what he was talking about, and part of what Making America Great Again means is that his administration is out to make people great again, as individuals. That process is in direct violation to everything liberal society believes, so of course their faces are melting. But they never had a right to attempt to change the message. Just as in the case of the Lakota gun issue, just because 55 people determined that school resource officers would be enough and that no decision on arming teachers was appropriate doesn’t mean that guns in schools isn’t the answer. But what it does mean is that the means of allowing people to arrive to that conclusion as individuals has been tampered with. The social norms that we have all been programmed to respond to are getting in the way of proper decision-making. But Trump’s appeal that is growing is that he is changing that and the gate keepers of our social norms, the media, Hollywood, the political structure of our elected offices hate it. But with the midterms coming up quick and polling going the opposite way that liberals would like to see, it is evident that a major change of social norms is on the horizon and it will be quite shocking to all those who have made their livings as those social restrictor plates. And I will cheer quite loudly as those advancements are made.

Omarosa the Dog: The context behind the comment

It wasn’t black people or a group of women who decided to record General Kelly and apparently others in the White House situation room, it was Omarosa Magnigault Newman. Various political groups identified through peer politics were not responsible for her illegal actions in breaking a confidentiality agreement with her employer. Therefor when Donald Trump called her a lowlife dog he wasn’t calling all women a dog or even black people. Yet that was the defense thrown up to defend the former White House staff member who was given a job out of kindness when the president showed his anger at having someone who had been close to him betray him for a climb at her own brand of celebrity. Trump’s term as Omarosa “the dog” is purely out of hurt and intended toward her as an individual. People say Trump should have known better and never given her such an important job to begin with, but I understand what he was trying to do. He liked her and wanted to give her a chance at something really respectful, and she fell short like a lot of people do, and it disappointed him. Sure he could have hired a more polished person for that position, and she should have considered herself lucky for even having the chance. But Trump was also trying to think outside the box and when things work, they work wonderfully. When they don’t, sometimes you get a Omarosa.

At the heart of the criticism of her is her blatant disrespect for the opportunities that she only obtained by riding on Trump’s coattails. A person like her will never amount to anything if left to her own merits so Trump being the eternal optimist that he is thinks he can fix anybody. That is a trait that I share with the president and is one of the reasons I like him so much. He’s willing to take chances on people the way a poker player will make bets even if their hand is weak, because they believe if they stick with it, that things will turn in their favor. It takes guts to take someone you know isn’t going to get many opportunities in life and give them a shot at the big picture. From my own experience such things fail about 80% of the time, but when they work 20% of the time really good things usually happen so the payoff is most of the time worth it. But you have to be willing to have failures, to make some bets that won’t lead directly to a payoff.

Looking at Trump’s White House at the Michael Cohen situation, of course Omarosa, General Flynn, even Roger Stone and Alex Jones, Trump isn’t afraid to make bets on wild people because often the payoff for one of them leads to a big treasure. But when the others fail, it looks like chaos to people who don’t understand what’s going on. If the goal of the White House was to look professional, then Trump should hire only people finely polished out of the media industry and the university system. But when Trump wins, like he did with Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Sanders, the benefits far outweigh the downside. When people are critical of Trump’s management style what they are really mad at is that he has steered away from convention always going for jackpots instead of playing the safe game and putting an emphasis on the visuals of an Executive Branch that matches the rest of Washington D.C. culture.

If you are a person with a big personality, like Trump has, you can endure disappointments. Just like in poker, you may lose a few chips on a bluffing hand, but the payoff comes when you find that real diamond in the rough and find they outproduce and outthink everyone else. It’s worth dozens of failures to find that one exceptional individual, and obviously that was what Trump was trying to do with Omarosa, and Steve Bannon. Most people can’t handle it though when they go from relative obscurity to being a respected figure around the globe, so they sabotage the efforts as a psychological defense mechanism against their own self-perception. That was clearly the case with Steve Bannon. That is certainly what Omarosa is doing and that is why Michael Cohen started to flip to the other side on the FBI case. Notice how now that the FBI is falling apart in its case against Trump that Cohen is trying to mend fences in little ways? That is the way it is with these edgy people. When they are good they are great. When they fall off the fence for which their lives are entangled, they fall hard and often break more than bones.

It hurts to put a lot of love and effort into people only to have them turn back toward decadence and the life of a loser. But you can’t often shape them into wanting to be a better person, especially if their upbringing trained them to be losers. You can hope like Trump obviously does that people will listen to you and want to be better, but you often can’t polish a turd into a diamond. Most of the time the materials just aren’t there to make it happen and the people you invest in fail. But that still doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try. If you are a person of boundless energy, like Trump is, then there is always energy to give someone a shot. Omerosa is one of those people, he should have tried, and he did. She just couldn’t hack it and when she realized it, she started recording and plotting for her own tell all book and chance at fame on her own volition. So sure, it hurts President Trump and he appropriately called her a dog for her actions.

However, his comments are not racist. As I’ve explained often, Republicans who truly believe in individual rights cannot be racist. Omarosa is being judged on her individual behavior, not her connections to any groups whether they be that of women or those of blacks. And she can’t hide behind those groups when she gets herself in trouble which is precisely what she has been doing. It is not Trump’s fault that she flew too close to the sun and had her wings melted and lost her courage for what the administration is trying to do, that she retreated to the world of identity politics where her own insecurities could be hidden behind group assimilation.

Omarosa is a dog because like that canine species of quad walking feces eating suck asses they are often happy to sit at the side of a table and eat the scraps that people throw down at them, and that is where she has retreated. Trump tried to dress her up and give her an actual seat at the table out of compassion for her, but she just couldn’t hack it. So she jumped down off the chair and started to wag her tail begging for table scraps. For Trump that is a painful realization because she could have just eaten directly from the table, but after all, she’s just a dog. Put a dress on her, give her a nice place to reside, but she still wants to act like a dog, so he called her what she showed him was her preferred conduct. And that wasn’t racist, or sexist, it was just the correct observation of reality.

The End of the Democratic Party is Near: After the elections of August 8th 2018, a “red wave” is coming

No matter how you slice it, the election of Troy Balderson to the 12 district House seat was a big deal. By looking at a map of the various counties, a few for which downtown Columbus is a big part of, it is obvious that liberals have contaminated the metropolitan area, but up in Delaware County, the truth is much easier to see. Republicans are more than happy to vote for Trump backed candidates and only a very small minority of densely packed liberals are what kept the Democrat Danny O’Connor at a neck and neck race throughout the August 7th 2018 election. There are two forces that were hoping for Balderson to lose even if publicly they were saying they supported him, the Kasich members of the divided GOP and the liberals from the political left who were hoping that the young Danny O’Connor would tweak out a win and send hope into the Democrats ahead of the November mid-terms. It was only the previous Sunday that John Kasich was on television essentially hoping for a Balderson defeat because Donald Trump came to Delaware County to help push the GOP candidate over the top. That 12th District used to be Kasich’s years ago and in television ads O’Connor made many comparisons to the Ohio governor that were accurate. That’s because Kasich is not a conservative, but only in name only. And even with his attempts to divide the GOP away from Trump, the President still lent his support to Balderson to stretch out a victory.

Most of the Ohio race was a show, a divided GOP, a desperate Democratic Party with no ideas and only Trump derangement syndrome to fuel their voter turnout, much of it was early voting that mysteriously seems to always favor Democrats. Is there tampering, probably, but in the end, Republicans showed up in the suburbs of Columbus to defend their turf in an August election and it put a victory on the map for Trump backed candidates going into November. It was a close race only because it was an August election. November will bring out more from the GOP while the same old losers who voted for O’Connor will show up to a diminished result. There is not going to be a “blue wave” of Democrats that are going to retake the House and Senate in Washington D.C.

Donald Trump remains the premier “get out the vote” energizer politician in the country and the Democrats have nobody like him. In spite of what Frank Luntz or any other GOP pollster thinks in the traditional way at looking at election result data, a one-point victory is a one-point victory, especially when that turnout for the Democrats is largely regulated to the inner cities. That is not a growing voting base. In the other counties that surrounded Columbus that made up the 12th District it is all red, just as much of the country is. Where are all these blue votes going to come from that people on the other side hope to see? They aren’t there.

John Kasich said a lot on his ABC ‘This Week’ interview by coming out immediately and talking about how GOP women he knew weren’t going to vote for Trump in the Tuesday election. He insisted that women thought that Trump was bad for the party and that the GOP was divided because of it. Well, he was and continues to be wrong. GOP women might tell the governor things to make him happy, but when they are pulling the lever in the election booth, it’s for Trump. It’s kind of like a husband asking his wife why she’s looking at another man, and she says something like, I thought I recognized him from somewhere. The woman says this so not to hurt her husband’s feelings because she’s really thinking about more horizontal ideas with that other man, because her husband is boring. GOP women love Donald Trump because he’s confident, disruptive, and powerful. He is the rebel with a cause, and the instinct to like Trump is pure biology and logic. Nobody wants to hurt John Kasich’s feelings because he has turned into a Democrat. Most women especially in public talk and sympathize with Democrats, so its easy for Kasich to mistake what they tell him. But in their heart they crave the rebel with a cause they can believe in, and they will show up 100% of the time to vote for the president’s picks.

Much of what has been said by Democrats and people who are Democrats but wear the name of Republican next to they’re name—like John Kasich have been simply evoking their hopeful utterances. Their opinions about Trump are out of jealousy, not factual information so their statements end up corrupted by desire instead of reality. The hope that a strong showing by O’Connor means that there is a “blue wave” coming is only the cries of an inferior team grasping at their last breath as a major political party. What is going to happen after November’s elections and the GOP holds the House and Senate? What will their storyline be then? Having nothing as a platform and not being able to outwork Donald Trump, what do the Democrats have to show dominance as a party about to take over Capital Hill? They have nothing but some dying networks like CNN, MSNBC and some old liberal newspapers. They have tech companies like Facebook, Google and YouTube that are now so desperate that they are taking down people like Alex Jones as a means to stall out the populist movement ahead of the elections. If they weren’t worried about the populist message, they wouldn’t be resorting to censorship. These are not the methods of a winning party. When the opposition starts cheating, and trying to manipulate the facts—when they try to arrest members of the President’s election team and his immediate family to scare him away from a re-election by using the tools of the Deep State to destroy all opposition it is because they know they can’t win a direct election fight.

If Democrats thought they could win in November they wouldn’t be attacking people and threatening violence as they are now. They are calling for violence and harassment of GOP members because they know they are losing and have nothing to offer as a political platform. All they have is the inner cities, they cannot make any political movement in the suburbs and the proof was in the results of a weak election turnout in an August election in Ohio. It was their best chance to take a seat, but they lost anyway and nothing about that shows strength for a “blue wave.” Rather, it is the opposite that they will be seeing. When people ask me what I think will happen in the November elections I think it will be the end of the Democratic Party, not a “blue wave.” I’ve been talking about this for a long time, that the Democrats as a party will come to an end. Well, I think this is how it will happen. Once these November elections happen and Republicans hold most of their seats, perhaps even gaining some, there will be nowhere to go and no hope to be obtained for the future. The Democrats will be finished as a party and their vast corruption cases that have been suppressed for years will suddenly overflow the news, because people know a loser when they see them and once the potential for power is lost, the boot lickers will sing, and the party will never survive. And that’s very easy to see at this point.

We Need to Knock that Smile off Rod Rosenstein’s Face: The crimes of the FBI and why this is the biggest story in the world

The biggest story of the day is not that of the loser Jarrod Ramos who stormed the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland to kill with a shotgun the editors whom he had a long-standing dispute. Nor was it the fat assed losers in desperate need of boyfriends who were protesting the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency’s D.C. headquarters trying to shut down ICE as an organization so to support the open border fantasy of destroying America from within by overloaded illegal immigration. The story is not that Supreme Court Justice Kennedy is retiring giving President Trump a much-needed pick to keep the court thinking correctly well into the future. The real story of the day was the testimony of the weaponized FBI by its current bosses in the form of the arrogant Rob Rosenstein’s comments before congress. This wasn’t just a show for the voters, this was a peeling back of the curtain in the Wizard of Oz of the real villains of our society—radical ideologues using the law and our tax money to front a coup against our election system for which they are using the legal system as a cover for operation. When you can’t trust the FBI essentially every other story is worthless, because social chaos is bound to spawn off in the wake.

The reason the Russian investigation at this point is such a joke is because its entire purpose has been to divert attention away from the radicalism utilized by the FBI for the purpose of manipulating an American election. The arrogance on full display of Rob Rosenstein and the presence of FBI agent Peter Strzok gave us a glimpse into a very subtle evil that had been percolating for quite some time. For the FBI to drag the document request by congress the way they have, and to continue to use a phony Mueller investigation hoping to run out the clock on complete social breakdown, which is going on all around us quite literally, the FBI has attempted to cover up crimes it committed against American voters with a diabolical scheme that would embarrass any plot writer for the latest James Bond movie.

All the other bad stories that are happening, especially the one involving the shooting at the Capital Gazette cascades off the bad behavior of a society lacking civility because the basic trusts of our invented institutions are in turmoil due to massive corruption among their leadership. Under President Obama the FBI became weaponized and due to a fortunate accident, President Trump was elected which exposed the menace with the villains caught in the act red-handed. Up until that point we had only suspected that our institutions such as the FBI, the IRS and other government institutions filled with government labor unionized radical employees were up to no good politically. We certainly saw it in the case of Lois Lerner and during the Fast and Furious debacle involving Eric Holder and Barack Obama. We certainly saw it in the Benghazi failures when the Obama administration tried to blame the whole thing on a video by some filmmaker. This case against Trump has the same fingerprints all over it by the tampering forces of a rival political administration. Only this time we have the evidence and the arrogance of Rob Rosenstein to confirm our worst suspicions.

Watching Peter Strzok testify on Capitol Hill, studying his body language has he entered and exited his car says a lot about the FBI. Even after all that he has done he was protected by the FBI and he believed just as Rosenstein did that the institution itself, of the FBI, is bigger than the society they are supposed to be sworn to protect. You could see it on Rosenstein’s face when he answered the questions of Jim Jorden from Ohio referring to the body of congress as an equal arm of government. The question asked of course from Jorden was why Rosenstein’s department was so slow to submit documentation to congress as requested. Obviously, the reason is to have the DOJ run out the clock and hope that some spectacular news story will come along and wash all this evidence away letting the villains at the FBI go free. But that’s not going to happen. Even with all the big news stories of this rather crazy week, nothing was bigger than the FBI testimony in front of congress. As much as they would hope, Rosenstein’s defiance was the smoking gun we all needed to see.

While its nice to put your head down on a soft pillow at night and know that we have hired people to deal with the villains of the world—such as why the FBI exists to begin with, often that security is an illusion. When the FBI becomes involved in such corruption all the good they do on the child porn cases, the surveillance of terrorist suspects and the general well-being of our society, they undo it all with just one case of corruption, and in this case it’s a lot of corruption. What makes me the angriest is that a smokescreen investigation into Trump collusion with some made up Russians has cost nearly $18 million so far, and that is just to hide the FBI’s own role in criminal activity. They have wasted enormous sums of money funded by tax payers on a story to hide their own guilt which is far different from the $57 million spent investigating Bill Clinton, or the $26 million spent on Watergate. Some might say that those other cases were examples of political witch hunts too, but in this case all Donald Trump did to find himself under investigation was that he won and election. The institutions can’t believe they didn’t see it coming, that all their indicators pointed to an easy Hillary Clinton victory. Well, I called the Trump win well over a year out. I had no doubt he would win even in October when all the dirty tricks came out. Hillary Clinton wasn’t even a legal contender, so the FBI didn’t ruin her chances, the only reason she was a candidate instead of being in jail running for president of the United States was because of them. The FBI didn’t cause Hillary to lose, Donald Trump beat her fair and square yet the pain of that victory for the other side is beyond their comprehension, so they are wasting, by the time it’s all said and done, over $20 million to prove that they aren’t the idiots that they really are.

What’s worse is that the FBI wasn’t just willing to provide legal cover for criminal conduct, but they have been willing to attack and destroy political rivals from within Trump’s circle. Using the FBI as a weapon against justice is beyond reprehensible and to watch Rosenstein and Strzok smile and at times laugh at members of congress during very serious testimony indicates that they know they are at the top of the legal ladder and they have no fear of falling off. That is a serious problem. It is the biggest story in the world right now because if there cannot be justice in the United States, there cannot be justice in Mexico, Indonesia, Japan, Russia or all of Europe—anywhere. If our FBI in America is that corrupt, then what chance is there for anybody anywhere? That is why the punishment for these offenses at the FBI and their role in criminal conduct must be punished in the harshest manner possible, and we need to knock that smile off Rosenstein’s face, because behind him are thousands of ankle bitters just like him wanting to be the next top boss, and if he gets away with all this corruption, there will be no way to fix it later with those waiting in the chain of command for their opportunity to do much worse if left unchecked.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Hollywood is going extinct

I had the feeling while watching Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom that like the dinosaurs in it that were being resurrected through DNA tampering, that Hollywood was putting on its last great epics before going extinct themselves. Identity politics is killing the motion picture experience, which was certainly present in the new Jurassic World movie, which have always been there just enough to appease the industry radicals. I never expect the Jurassic movies to be deep character pieces, they are adventure films and this one is certainly one of the best. I thought it was a really good movie, better than Jurassic World with jaw-dropping visuals and deserves everything it is making financially. But I couldn’t help but see the bigger picture at play, and this is connected to Solo: A Star Wars Story which was a great movie too, but was torpedoed for being politically incorrect, and lost money at the box office. Identity politics has destroyed this particular story telling experience. Movies in general are now officially extinct. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom does a good job of sidestepping that problem with dinosaurs and some really well-done action sequences, but if this is the best that Hollywood can do—and it is, then no wonder the movie industry is dying. As good as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was the critics gave the film a 50% Rotten Tomato score and I’ll tell you why, because Chris Pratt was fabulous in this movie. He was a traditional, very strong, white male matinée actor on par with Indiana Jones and Hollywood’s identity politics doesn’t want to feed that tradition in America and the world, they want to destroy it. Unlike Solo: A Star Wars Story fortunately, parents were willing to take their kids to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom anyway, because the dinosaurs were just great, so this particular movie will do good business in spite of industry efforts to punish the film for sticking with traditions in the role of heroics. I thought all the actors did a great job, but Chris Pratt really made this a work of love and it showed.

If the industry can’t get 100% behind a movie like these Jurassic World films they won’t get behind anything and that is the cause of Hollywood’s failure. When leftists took over the industry completely way back in the late 80s and early 90s their goal was obvious, to use Hollywood to sell their message of progressive politics. They were intent to use the fantasy aspect of movies to sell the fantasy of progressives as a disguised reality for which audiences would accept as truth, because they saw it in a movie. Only people went to movies to get away from that kind of politics, so the power of Hollywood started a gradual decline. And it wasn’t just the rejection of the product itself. Over the last thirty years video games have become so much more sophisticated, people have less time for movies and traditional television, and online streaming has proven itself to be competitive with the cinematic experience. If people were able to watch something like The Game of Thrones on their home theater systems why would they rush out to the movies to watch another Jim Carry movie from the Dumb and Dumber series?

Hollywood has a labor union problem, its presence in every movie has jacked up the cost of doing business while at the same time restricting creativity. You can’t make a movie in Hollywood unless the key people are in the labor unions and that means that people who do well in the industry desire to make the union bosses happy by slipping in politics from the union literature that they are always getting from their memberships. In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Bryce Dallas Howard played Claire with a nice mix of modern woman mixed with traditional damsel in distress fantasy which is very appealing to young male viewers. So the film makers walked the line well in this movie, but her father Ron Howard has completely lost his mind if you watch his Twitter feed, which I think reflects what all these Hollywood people are suffering from and that is the liberalism that is part of their inner circle of experience, and their memberships to the trade unions are the connective tissue that holds them all together toward that distorted reality. Ron Howard I thought did a great job with Solo: A Star Wars Story, but his politics were certainly a turn-off for prospective viewers. I loved the technical aspects of that movie as well as the character itself, but the identity politics in that film were abundant. Critics couldn’t get behind the film obviously because it was about a strong white male. Now if Han Solo and Lando were involved in a homosexual relationship then critics would have loved the movie and pushed it with great reviews. But it was about a traditional romance where the white guy hero tries to win the love of the leading lady and the industry showed its wrath on that film as punishment. In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom they had a lesbian character in it to appease those demographic stereotypes circulated around the trade union press—like The Hollywood Reporter. Thankfully, the producers cut the scene where the lesbian reveals her sexuality—so the nature of her sexual relationships with women went undefined in the film. Nobody goes to see a movie about dinosaurs because they want to think about the sexual appetites of the characters. They want to see action, and heroics—that’s why they buy tickets. But the trade unions don’t care about profit or the reason people buy tickets, because they are under the assumption that people will always attend movies at a movie theater so they can push their members into left leaning radicalism to get their progressive messages out to the world at any cost.

That cost is horrendous. Hollywood has turned toward global box office takes to cover their costs, and expectations. If a film doesn’t make $100 million in the communist Chinese market these days, it’s considered a failure. Movies these days can’t just be movies, they have to be vehicles of progressive propaganda that have globalists messages. Movies like Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom walk the line as closely as is possible these days. I thought the action scenes were as good as any of the past Indiana Jones movies, both in quality and execution. It was smartly made on a $170 million-dollar budget which is essentially a two-act play—where most films are three act structures. I thought that was a great move, to start the movie with a tremendous action sequence that would be the climax of most movies, then to turn toward a Hitchcockian style of horror film. One of the main villains was an auctioneer played by Toby Jones, which I thought was very good—yet it wasn’t lost to me that when he was about to be eaten by a dinosaur that his combover flying in the wind was a shot at Donald Trump. There was certainly an anti-capitalist message that would have stepped all over itself if the dinosaurs weren’t larger than life and were the real scene stealers. But making a movie like this where little anti-Trump Easter eggs were thrown in to make the cast and crew happy is risky business because the filmmakers certainly don’t want people like me to derail the film over the reminders of modern politics that is entirely left leaning. For instance, there was much made about how much better the new Oceans movie made in box office acceptance over Solo: A Star Wars Story, because it’s a film where females take over the role of traditional men in that heist film. That movie is on its third weekend and it just broke $100 million domestically. Solo: A Star Wars Story did that the first week and a half of its run so the game is easy to see for those who have the eyes for it. Hollywood has used that oversea number to hide the dismal domestic box office reality from not only themselves, but the entire entertainment industry. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was smart to cut their film into a two-act structure and to put all their money upfront because it wasn’t easy to tell how the movie would do in this toxic identity politics driven world. Not every movie can do that, so reality is starting to cook the industry alive, and it is obvious.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a great movie if movies were allowed to just be movies anymore. But they aren’t. Hollywood metaphorically is the fallen kingdom refered to in the movie. Mankind is losing the world to dinosaurs because we tampered too much with science to allow our species to coexists with them, and ironically it is the Hollywood industry that is now going extinct. There is just too much competition and social media has too many critics to allow Hollywood to achieve their aim at just making progressive movies with global box office numbers that carry them all over $500 million each. That is a formula that just isn’t going to work so in many ways this latest Jurassic World movie is like watching the end of an era where literally everything we have ever known about it was blowing up in front of our faces. It was spectacular to see, and worth the ticket. But the writing is clearly on the wall. The next generation is not going to support the movie industry. They have too many other options to enjoy for their entertainment dollar, and time. Identity politics has killed the Hollywood product. And that is the real story behind Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

‘The Black Panther’ Was Racist, Toward White People: Roseanne’s cancellation to fullfil Disney’s political objectives

https://twitter.com/overmanwarrior/status/1001959361470754816

So what was wrong with Roseanne Barr saying about the Obama administration activist Valerie Jarrett if “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj?” For that Tweet ABC owned by the Disney Company cancelled the top-rated show. I’m not seeing the problem with the hard-hitting comedian saying such a thing, Valerie Jarrett isn’t a black woman or anything—she’s fair game in the public realm, she was born after all in Shiraz, Iran. Many other comedians, even those employed by Disney in some way or another have said much worse about President Trump and white men in general. So why isn’t there allowed a banter back and forth—because in the context of things, that’s all Roseanne was doing.

I watched The Black Panther the other day not knowing much about the character or the movie other than it did very good business and I was shocked at some of the lines by the characters which were obvious put downs toward the white actors. Was that supposed to be funny? What if the white characters said something like, “you black people are all alike,” or something to that effect, how would that have gone over? Likely there would have been riots in the streets and massive protests at the box office. Even though I am pulling for Disney to do well with the new Solo Star Wars movie I couldn’t help but notice the political activism in the film, the very deliberate white guy kissing a black girl, or Han Solo arguing with an Imperial officer that they were attacking the home world of their enemy and that they were in the wrong. Does every movie these days have to have some kind of social commentary?

Can’t people just tell a story? Largely the film is good fun and avoids some of the political pitfalls that have contaminated the other three Star Wars films from the Disney era, but when you do see it the radicalism is quite jarring. At the end of the Black Panther the heroes go to the United Nations and agree to share their awesome technology with the rest of the world. That’s fine for a fantasy story, but there is nothing politically factual about the story of the Kingdom of Wakanda having all this technical power. And the United Nations is not a governing body of any influence, so much of the premise of The Black Panther is purely political, in that they are trying to create a philosophic reality by tossing out the facts of the matter.

I enjoyed The Black Panther mostly, and I root for Disney to do well most of the time. I like Star Wars, I enjoy their theme parks, I’m even looking forward to the new Incredibles 2 coming up. But they are just entertainment options at best these days, and nothing to take too seriously, until they make themselves political. And Disney is certainly guilty of that. I understand they are a company with globalist aims because that’s where the new markets are, but in doing so they are spitting in the eye of Walt Disney himself who was a very stout American patriot. If Disney were alive today he’d be a Trump supporter and likely a leader in the Tea Party movement. Bob Iger on the other hand thinks serious of being a Democratic nominee for President of the United States—is not the same type of person. Iger is pushing liberal politics into the Disney brand, and that has worked for a while so long as they didn’t cross the line. But over the last four or five years the line is being crossed constantly and the only way they’ve managed to get away with it is because there are no other media platforms out there who can really compete with them.

Obviously, the Disney Company was looking for the first opportunity to get Roseanne’s show off the air. While it was making a lot of money for the company the profits from Infinity War alone nearly erase the losses from cancelling Roseanne’s show, and for Bob Iger, feeding the political platform of the other side was something he couldn’t let happen on his watch. The message couldn’t be clearer, it is alright if liberals make fun of conservatives even crossing the lines of racism calling Trump a monkey and all types of terrible names. But if someone calls a liberal a name—especially if she’s female, then all hell will break loose. That is if people care about the Hell that is breaking loose. Honestly for me, I can take it or leave it. I watched one episode of the new Roseanne Barr show and couldn’t handle it. It was just too slow and stuck for me. It certainly wasn’t a conservative show as it was being sold. I couldn’t relate to any of the characters, so I didn’t watch another episode. They were all too negative to me, so it’s no skin off my back for the show to be cancelled. I’ll cheer for Star Wars to do well, and I like the efforts of the Marvel movies, but more and more Disney is losing people like me to their radicalism—and in the long-term, they are making a mistake because its people like me who will support them in the future. Not Valarie Jarrett, who is a well-known progressive radical who invited some rebuke from someone with enough guts to do it—because that’s the nature of the world we are living in today.

What is really going on with Disney and liberals in general with this whole two-faced duality they have going on is that as liberals they want to believe that there is a Wakanda out there, which is an obvious rip off from Ayn Rand’s classic novel Atlas Shrugged. But also as liberals, they have no way of knowing how to get there. They just say that it exists and expect audiences to accept that reality without understanding the foundation of the philosophy. They associate liberalism with skin color and advanced technology and everyone is just supposed to go along with it until someone like Roseanne comes along and makes them look at the world of Donald Trump that they are so desperate to ignore.

https://twitter.com/overmanwarrior/status/1001597600548687879

Back to the Han Solo reference from Solo: A Star Wars Story, Donald Trump is probably the least war hungry President America has ever had. By the end of his term many of the wars around the world will be coming to an end and that should make Disney and the liberals behind the company very happy. Donald Trump literally is like Han Solo in the new film asking why America is in all these foreign wars. He wants out. But liberals can’t handle that reality, so they choose to ignore it, and when someone like Roseanne gives them an excuse to turn away from the truth, they are more than willing to do it—even if it cuts off their own noses to spite their face.

I wouldn’t have called Valarie Jarrett an ape from the Muslim brotherhood because I have a lot more descriptive terminology to use because I have an extensive vocabulary to draw from, but many people I know of all shapes sizes, sexes and races think the same way about Valerie Jarrett, they just don’t have the intellectual means to express it beyond frustrated terminology, which is why Roseanne had a number one show. Disney can turn their eyes away from that reality, but they can’t outrun the truth. While they are doing well as a company presently, that won’t last forever. There are only so many Infinity War movies out there that they can make as they are quickly turning off conservatives in America with their radicalism. I’ve been one of their biggest fans over the years and they are turning me off, especially after watching The Black Panther. The political activism couldn’t be more obvious. And not having Roseanne on the air won’t have any impact on how people feel. It just means that they go deeper into hiding making them a phantom menace toward future political endeavors. Democrats can’t win by ignoring the facts—they have to come to terms with reality and that is obviously something they aren’t willing to do.

The situation is so bad that I had to send Ron Howard a Tweet today reminding him to keep his liberal mouth shut so that he didn’t further hurt Solo: A Star Wars Story in a very critical week where the film can make some money. I’m not interested in helping Ron Howard, Kathy Kennedy or Bob Iger and their political ideologies, I’m trying to help Star Wars. The American domestic market is still half of all box office totals and it’s not smart to only try to appeal to half the American nation. Like it or not, half the nation voted for Donald Trump and his approval ratings show it. Wasn’t it Michael Jordon who famously said, “Republicans buy tennis shoes too.” The old Star Wars movies didn’t have roots in current politics, so they were films that spoke to higher concepts. They were obviously anti-Nazi, but that was about it. The big problem with liberals is that they are participating this activism in an attempt to erase their own history with radicalism, because it was liberals who were the racists supporting slavery, and it was liberals who took over the German political machine and invented the Nazi. It wasn’t conservatives. So they hope that by overreacting to every little thing, like Roseanne Barr Tweeting about Valarie Jarrett in the same way that other comedians from the political left do toward Republicans like Trump—that they can erase history. But guess what, they can’t. Most of America knows the truth and pandering to demographic groups like Disney has been doing cannot justify liberalism as it is. Because what it always was have been the source of racism and terror. Just like the secret city of Wakanda in The Black Panther Disney can’t just say something is good without showing how, what, why, when and where, and when they attempt to history is always there with a grim reminder that it’s not on their side. Valerie Jarrett is not one of the good people, she’s at best a villain—she will never be a Disney princess. And cancelling Roseanne won’t erase that factual reality.
