Why Most Scientists are no Better than a Common Whore: They’ll say anything for grant money

So it’s been thrown around a lot lately, especially in the wake of the Wuhan Virus coming out of China, and it plays a huge part into the reason so many Americans were duped into accepting so many cancellations to prevent the spread of the virus. This notion that the “scientists” are beyond refute and should be listened to like sages of knowledge that are beyond political theater is just ridiculous. Politicians desperate for President Trump to be controlled by the same fears that everyone else is functioning from have been saying with increased voracity that he needs to start listening to the scientists. This of course has been in reference to the Wuhan Virus but more largely the climate change studies that are being done by federally funded scientists who will say and do anything to their paying clients, just like a common whore, for the purpose of setting policy to their statements. And anybody who thinks on their own is considered stupid, uneducated, and dangerously reckless because in their thinking they have deviated from the established source material published to support some reckless conclusion not meant to cast mankind into space as an independent specimen of evolving character, but to lay prostrate before a ruling class who desire to control every aspect of their lives. It’s not the great warriors of the hunt who are the top of a political food chain, it’s the academics, the scientists who are used as hammers to pound a point into the consciousness of a population to control it, not to advance it into any type of newfound state of understanding.

My unique relationship to this issue is that I love science and I deeply respect the work of the curious. If I didn’t have so many interests, I might have been one myself, but I could never stuff myself into one bottle of a field that could claim such a title. So I was never willing to limit my talents to one specified academic field and to declare to the world, this is what I am, a geologist, an archaeologist, a paleontologist, meteorologist—pick one of the fields and its likely I had enough interest in them all to be one professionally. And in college, where I was on a path to studying economics, it was the same problem. The professors would issue the textbook needs for that semester, and I’d have the books all read and understood within a week. I just never accepted putting on the breaks to my mind that wanted to move at 1000 miles per hour and this used to concern many people who were worried about my future. They would call it a lack of focus, but what it really was, was an understanding of things that was very hyper in its origins. The result was that after several decades of openly studying all the things I wanted to in the pace that I could consume the data, that I know a great many things and can speak about my thoughts on them in a way that is far beyond the single topic scientist. And because of that, I can comment on things that people functioning under an orthodox understanding just wouldn’t see otherwise and that has led me to many topics that I discuss that involve these giants of the world that are found in grave sites displaying a past history that has never been talked about except in far flung books that are outside the purview of accepted cultural academics.

Studying those topics of the giant race of people who are obviously part of our distant past and do not have a place in the anthropology record that has been established has been quite a journey, and that tangled web is still being uncovered as we speak by more and more people who like me are saying, “wait a minute.” From what I know on the subject its only the greatest conspiracy that has ever been pulled in front of the eyes of mankind and at best we should all be insulted by what scientists have tried to perpetrate on us, not just in the realm of history, politics, religion, but psychologically. Let’s just say this much, scientists have been lazy, a general statement that applies to many of them. Those who have allowed their minds to be limited to one field of study have been all too willing to allow that limited vision to direct their attention to the understandings that political tides shaped by religious needs allowed to be known—not what actually was and needs to be studied under the umbrella of multifaceted science. Because the fields of understanding in academia are defined in the ways they are, and funding models for those fields require minds to stay in their lane, many of the things that need to be known just aren’t because the system is set up to always keep them from coming together and sharing information that the other would need to know to advance the fields of science.

So when anybody says that we should listen to the “scientists” they are essentially declaring their frustration that a president like Trump won’t stay in the lanes established to control the minds of mankind and focus their attention on the political needs of that culture. Personally, I have found that its far more conducive to understand the mysteries of our times because I never accepted one field of study over a long time of being passionately driven toward understanding, because I have been free to read and explore whatever the evidence presented. I have not had to shape my thoughts to fill the parameters of federal funding through a grant or some other finance hurdle that is so common in all fields of study. The academic system that we inherited from Europe still has way too much Roman Empire in it, and from there the way study emerged from the Catholic Church of France and England. We still want our fields of study to follow some path that reflects the monk like lives of those who professionally read the Bible for a living and many of us, most of us, have accepted that limit openly. And that is why the professional scientist can lie and mislead the public on the nature of the Wuhan Virus or of the dangers of climate change without a nervous twitch to their eye, because in their way of viewing the world, they believe what they say because they don’t have supporting evidence from other points of view that could dispute them.

Only by thinking in multifaceted ways can the true nature of science be understood, and as a business guy, I think that gives Trump a better grasp on the nature of scientific understanding than the fragmented specialization of the most dedicated members of their fields. We are all better off not listening to the scientists, not the other way around. The truth can only be seen by understanding many things, yet it is concealed by forcing minds to only look at fragmented things and to build a case study around that limited knowledge. And due to this nature, great veils have been pulled over our own history that many people just aren’t prepared to deal with emotionally. Yet, that doesn’t make those notions wrong, just inconvenient. In a free society where people are free to think and do what they want and they can defend that right with the personal ownership of guns, the truth is going to get out, and it is rapidly these days, especially under President Trump. And that has establishment types more terrified than ever, and is the true nature of the massive amounts of consternation that can be witnessed daily on the news cycles and text books that go out to young minds looking for answers, and when they don’t get them, get bored and just accept the locked doors placed before them.

A Review of The Mandalorian: Boys never wanted the girls to invade their tree house.

There is no impeachment, even though that is the news of the day. All there is or ever was regarding the attempts of the Democrat controlled congress to attempt to get rid of President Trump is a frustrated attempt to manipulate the law in an effort to avoid their perilous fate of a 2020 loss even more embarrassing than over the past two elections. And my resolve is not to care too much about it unless they try to remove my president from his elected office, where I will then grab whatever volunteers are needed to defend him with the Second Amendment from those villains that have infected our government. Its that simple. No further commentary needed. Meanwhile, and I was glad for the options, Disney+ opened this week and we were all finally able to watch the new Star Wars show, The Mandalorian and let me just say this, it was fantastic.

I also say that for me visiting any story within the Star Wars experience is like a vacation for me. To understand that I’d refer to a recent article I wrote on the value of thinking like a 12-year-old. Children think in big, broad terms with solutions in focus and are not restricted on how to create the questions that might complete such a journey, so I see great value in it. The adult world would say that such a way of thinking is immature, but then look at their lives. They are heavy on burdens with limited options to deal with them, and their lives are most of the time a complete disaster. Nobody should listen to them under the best of circumstances. Star Wars was never meant for adults, but specifically for boys between the ages of 7 to 12. Of course, Disney wants to reach out to girls and older audiences if it can get them, but Star Wars as we have always known it was geared toward the problems of young boys. Visiting that way of thinking has always been fun for me because I like to explore lots of options with infinite optimism, and when everything fails in the real world, Star Wars has always been a place that values those sentiments.

As I have pointed out the new Disney owned Star Wars has not been as good. It’s been like that moment when all the young boys had a boys only tree house and the girls found out about it and wanted to join in. To be nice the boys let them but started grumbling when the girls brought with them dolls, cooking utensils and brooms to replace the guns, knives and acts of war of the boys. And instead of play fighting the boys found themselves talking about raising families and the difficulties of getting to the store, and they were noticeably upset about it. Under Disney, Star Wars became less about war and more about social justice and the skin color of the actors, and it became just boring. The Mandalorian much to my delight was made for the boys. Girls of course are invited, but the show was certainly an attempt to put Star Wars back to what it does best, and I think it exceeded at that.

The key to understanding big issues, such as this impeachment fiasco is in thinking without all the constraints that most adults learn to live with, and within Star Wars stories where big concepts are always at the front of discussion as we are talking essentially about the problems of a type 3 civilization, one that can use the power and resources of an entire galaxy yet have all the challenges of our present condition, it helps put the mind at play to behold the concepts. While most adults scratch their heads and attempt to put whatever the context of the modern problem is, such as the perplexity of the current congress to even attempt impeachment. That is because the reality of the present circumstances do not fit the adult assumptions of our understanding, which is precisely what the villains of modern government are counting on. To understand their game, you have to pull back your vision enough to play with various thoughts so that the true intention can only then be seen.

Such lofty thoughts are certainly at play in The Mandalorian, which was a nice science fiction/spaghetti western platform to tell some very interesting stories from. It was energetic and reminded me a lot of many Clint Eastwood westerns, everything from For A Few Dollars More to The Outlaw Josey Wales. It was fun and remarkably girl free. Not that girls are a problem. But the focus of The Mandalorian is being faster on the draw, not whether or not he cooks breakfast for his wife. I was a little shocked reading the most recent Star Wars book Resistance Reborn, which sets up directly the events of the next Star Wars film Rise of Skywalker, that the old hero Wedge Antilles was cooking breakfast when pilots arrive to recruit him back into the fight. Its not that cooking is a big deal, but the book was written by a woman and women think differently about things than boys. Wedge was a great warrior of the rebellion, yet the focus of his efforts was on cooking. Not something boys are naturally concerned with. That’s what I have been talking about with Star Wars with girls inviting the tree house of thought the boys would otherwise prefer to be in.

This is also why women are so easily tricked in politics, because their concerns are so quickly trapped by political theater and their natural predilection is not to fight, but to conform. When you can fight back against oppression, you tend not to find ways to live with it, and at the heart of Star Wars is that premise. Girls are invited, but its clearly a boy concept, and with The Mandalorian, that is clearly what is happening and its good to see that Lucasfilm can still reach that place even after so many progressive missteps toward social justice. Yet in other reviews about The Mandalorian the value of the largely female reviewers was that they thought it was great that the male leads in the show were from diverse backgrounds, one black, one Latino. I personally don’t care as long as somebody is shooting someone else. Its not about being white male that attracts me to a plot line, it’s the body count and the kind of guns they used. To get to the big ideas of anything the main character needs to be over the primal fears of a herd, and with women, they typically are trying to live with the world, not trying to change it.

Concerns about cooking, and feelings about things are not the natural state of boys. But overcoming problems and oppression are, and The Mandalorian certainly put its focus on those items. So, it’s the perfect entertainment to divert too while in real life congress is attempting to perform the worst scandal in human history. The goal is not to live with the consequences of that endeavor but to fight back against it. Star Wars was always about saying no to complacency and endeavoring for real change, not concerns of docile domestication, but in saving the galaxy from itself in spite of itself. And watching The Mandalorian it showed that the makers of Star Wars still understand what that looks like, and I’m looking forward to a lot more.

Professionals are Predicting a GDP Loss over the Government Shutdown: I think not

It is interesting that many investment firms and others connected to the financial world are predicting zero GDP growth in the first quarter of 2019 due to the government shutdown. I am not so sure that will be the case, in fact, consider what might happen should we discover that GDP growth remained at 3% to 4% in spite of 800,000 government workers stuck in limbo over the budget problem between the Trump White House and House Democrats who are refusing to make any concessions on a border wall. Gas prices are lower than they’ve been in years, taxes are lower and money is flowing quite robustly. If the GDP doesn’t fall as many are predicting, what would that do to future leverage that Democrats have over government shutdowns? What would happen once people realize that the government working or not doesn’t affect them very much and where it does, new methods of service should already be in place to prevent a loss in services.

Let’s face it, much of this “no work extortion” was designed by government labor unions to make it painful for voters to not pay for government services, by attaching very static services to consumer needs without regard to economic expansion. Actually, the goal of GDP stagnation was always the hope because it forced people to continue paying taxes and extraordinary fees for government workers in an inflated fashion just because people didn’t want to deal with the loss in services. But we live in the day of the smart phone, of Amazon where you can get anything anywhere at any time. Why should government be able to impede goods and services artificially—and why should a loser like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi be able to use a government shutdown as a means of bringing the American economy to a halt?

In reality, I don’t think the world cares about the shutdown. I don’t think the GDP of the United States will even notice—in one report I heard one of the reasons given was that government workers weren’t flying around doing business and that would account for a loss in GDP. Well, with fuel prices down and more expendable income in people’s pockets, I don’t think any of those losses in government transportation is going to amount to much and will easily be offset by the civilian sectors. So where is all this loss in GDP going to come from? Government doesn’t make anything and what they do interact with shouldn’t stop productivity from happening except where they have been artificially inserted by law, as opposed to a genuine need by market forces.

As I have been saying for many years, the socialism that has been taught in our public schools is hitting a critical juncture, many of those little kids are now in the market and interacting with the world, and socialism is very much their political platform. You can see that easily by some of the new members of congress. Additionally, many of the new Democrat 2020 presidential candidates are openly socialist and talking about confiscating businesses to redistribute wealth from those who have it to those who want it. They are openly talking about these things these days instead of hiding it. I think that is because of Trump’s victory in 2016, it forced the radicals working in our government to accelerate their long time plans and the same thing is happening in regard to this government shutdown. There is a race to make the final case for socialism before people discover that everything they have been taught their whole lives in public education was a lie. The election in 2020 is really the last time that socialists are going to have a shot in the United States before people realize that the economy is much better off under capitalist influence rather than centralized socialist mechanisms by incompetent insurgents.

That is after all how so many government jobs were placed in the way of the free market, to hopefully stop an economy if the government led by some conservative radical wanted to shut it down to make a point. The safety valve would be to wreck the economy and prevent conservatives from ever doing such a thing in the future. But what if conservatives stuck together and forced the revelation of such a scheme to be known with continued growth of the GDP even during a government shutdown? Then what happens? Of course, the answer is that government doesn’t really do anything to help our economy, it actually hinders it. With government out-of-the-way, the GDP should increase and that is the big secret that nobody wants to let out to the public. And with the market watchers leveraging their investments knowing the world of government and how much pain it can give them, they are saying all the things to make the beast happy and off their backs. But they know that free market forces unleashed will continue to expand the GDP of a nation, not whether government workers are there to stand in the way.

At the heart of this debate is the role government plays in the economy, socialists want to think of the government as a major employer, capitalists want the government out of their way as much as possible. That means that for the first time in American history we are about to learn to what extent the government actually plays in the economy because we have a president who actually understands economics, better than any advisors in the matter. And we’ll see how it turns out, but I’ll make a prediction, I don’t think its going to make much difference. The economy has a lot of money flowing through it, the trade deals that are being made are generating revenue for the American treasury and China is drowning currently. Instead of all that money flowing into their economy, its flowing into the American economy and that is something that the big government types just can’t bring themselves to an admission. The issue has a duel cut for them, first it shows that the communist Chinese were never as powerful as everyone had projected them to be, and second, it shows that government really doesn’t have any power. Government is not the king makers that liberals had always dreamed of, a free market system can’t be stifled when pure economics are applied.

Only when artificial constraints are placed on the ambitions of a nation’s GDP can an economy really be stifled to a zero sum. And Trump knows better than to buy that line of dialogue. He’s holding out so that the truth can be witnessed and when it is, then what? What will Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer say on that day in March and April when it’s revealed that GDP actually was not impacted by the government shutdown. What happens in the future then? The answer is that the extortion racket will lose its bite and I would think we’d all be happy for that. Except for those who want to see a government dominating all aspects of life. Their illusion will be crushed by such a revelation. That is what I’m predicting will happen, and as President Trump waits out the storm, I would be willing to bet that he knows it too.

There is No Such Thing as Universal Health Care for All: It’s a dumb idea created by dumb, lazy people hungry to control us all

When we are born there is no right to healthcare. Other people are not burdened with our support for life, and there is no guarantee that, that industry will even be around for our lifetime. The socialist fantasy of universal healthcare like a universal living wage are ridiculous notions born of lazy, below the line thinking. The problems of course are that people cannot be compelled just because they live to care for other people other than themselves. But more than anything, the healthcare industry itself is a changing business model and in its current state needs a lot of work. There is more to the fantasy alignment of socialism politically and socialism in medicine. One thing about modern medicine is that it is a very socialist enterprise and I personally despise it. Demanding funding to fill that monster isn’t a good idea and that is truly at the heart of the matter.

I am normally a very healthy person. One of my best features that I am very proud of is my immune system. As a kid I had perfect attendance for years in school and was seldom ever sick. As an adult I almost never miss work for anything and bounce back quickly when something major does happen. But I am over 50 now and that brings with it new challenges to a body that is beyond its reproductive usefulness. Nature has a way of rejecting bodies it no longer needs and as we age we all deal with the consequences of this effect. The world has little need for a human body that is no longer reproductive or seeking to be, so disease and degradation are facts of life for any aging person. But I still don’t accept that I am powerless to not determine my own fate so I found myself deathly sick for about three weeks at the end of 2018 and wondering the aisles of Wal-Mart at 6:30 AM seeking a way to combat my multiple ailments. I was highly suspicious that I may have ingested some government formed mutation of the flu designed to kill me because I just couldn’t shake this sickness and there were moments when I wondered if I was actually going to die.

My children were very worried, and as we moved into the New Year there was pressure to get over the sickness, so I could resume my life and all the people who need me to do my thing for their own benefit. So I won’t get into the details of what I had to do to fix myself. It certainly didn’t involve illegal drugs which I would never do under any circumstance. But I’m not going to give any of my enemies any knowledge of what I know about medicine and how to overcome attacks to my body from either genetically modified viruses or nanotechnology, let’s just say that. But I know more than most people could imagine and that condition will remain. However, for a while, I was concerned and actually considered that if I got it wrong, I may have ended up dead. So things got pretty serious. Yet when faced with the worst of it, going to the doctor was not an option, for contextual purposes.

There are times and places for doctors, but the system is so corrupt that I will avoid going even in life and death circumstances. I would trust myself more to come up with a solution than a doctor. Doctors as they are now are designed to take a sickness and extend it so that people lose their individuality and independence turning to drugs instead of their own immune systems and that is the dark little secret to the medical profession and why Democrats and other progressives want universal healthcare. They don’t want to fix people, they want to make more people’s lives dependent on the healthcare industry for which government seeks to control. It’s a very malicious plan.

As I explained to my daughters at the height of my own sickness, if a doctor had the ability to diagnose my condition then they would find prostate problems, cancer cell counts that were high, spinal alignment trouble, heart pressure problems and many other factors for which they would attempt to advise prescriptions to remedy. Most people would follow their recommendations to their own graves. As I told my kids I wasn’t ready to surrender any of my personal independence to drug companies and would rather die in the process, which I almost did a few times. But that’s how serious I was about it. As I have said many times the entire medical industry is turning toward regenerative growth, and it is there that I turned to solve my own problems, and likely always will. It works, it’s not a bunch of hippie science but in using what our bodies have their entire lives to stay healthy. I trust my immune system to fight off anything. If unusually genetically modified assailants come in contact with it, then sometimes that immune system needs a boost, but ultimately, that immune system needs to stay fighting ready all the time, and to be healthy. Our modern healthcare industry unfortunately seeks to destroy that trend and make adults more dependent on drugs than their own systems and that is the real terror that is behind the progressive universal care fantasy that is being championed by today’s Democrats.

By accepting universal healthcare for all it would be like accepting a dial-up telephone as the end of technical innovation for the medical industry. Instead of pushing for the next iPhone in technical breakthroughs where people weren’t just treated for being sick, but to restore them to complete health so that doctors and medicine didn’t have a monopoly of control on their lives is the trend that is trying to be born. With more political involvement the desire from Democrats is to prevent that opportunity because their ultimate desire is to use the medical industry to control the population, because like open borders, when they control whether or not people will live or die, that tends to have an effect on the ballot box and so far I haven’t heard anybody talk about that aspect of this argument. The Democrats don’t want to save people with universal healthcare, they want to control them.

As I provided in my personal example, I’d literally rather die than give up that personal freedom. I do not trust the medical industry to have my best health in mind when advising me on critical health issues. I’d rather take care of it myself which should say a lot. I’m by far a paranoid person, but I see a trend in medicine which indicates very below the line thinking. As an employer I am not impressed with a doctor’s note from an employee that does not come to work. I have to honor it legally, but it certainly changes how I feel about the employee as an option of investment for the future. And I exercise my rights to have such an opinion. Doctor’s don’t run my life in any way, they don’t tell me what drugs to take, what surgeries to have, or how productive I’ll be. And I am certainly not open to giving them more power with a guaranteed government backing for their industry with universal healthcare. I think that is the dumbest idea in the history of ideas for an industry that needs much less bureaucratic elements and much more innovation. People need to be restored to health not dependent on more government and the current health care industry does not fix people properly, and that is the heart of the conversation, not a right to something that is bad for you to begin with.

Two Bits of Advice in the New Year: The nature of leadership and political parties

I haven’t had a chance yet in a while but I plan to attend a West Chester Township Trustee meeting to confront a lap top loser who has been going around and trying to paint me as some kind of caricature of detriment to the Butler County GOP. This loser actually had some rationalization to indicate that I was the cause of embarrassment to a political party, which is to say a club of people who lend support to each other for elections and the ability to manage local affairs. In truth, anybody would be lucky to know me and unless someone is outperforming me in some manner of life, anything they say is fear-based illusions which brings us to a greater issue which will become a theme for me. Because to really solve problems it’s not enough to just point out where the errors are, you have to change the circumstances that cause those errors and that is something I do at many levels. And the byproduct of that change is usually anger. People thriving off a present system of chaos do not want to change and when someone comes along that represents change of any kind, deep resentments and hostilities always follow. There is nothing new there. If something I’m doing causes consternation among those happy with the way things are there’s usually a good reason. But my personal policy is not to let things go unsettled, and I certainly won’t when challenged by some loser who wants a political party to remain like it has been in the past when its clear improvements are needed in the future.

Whether in politics or business there are many people when groups of activity are considered who function below the line of positive thought and they are the causes of a need for change. It is baffling for instance that anybody would hate Donald Trump as much as they do for president. I had to get gas on New Year’s Eve ahead of 2019 and saw prices had dropped to $1,88. That by itself should be enough for people to love the President, but good performance is not what losers in the world want. Losers in this case are below the line thinkers, people functioning from perpetual negativity. What they fear most in the world is that some motivated person will come along and change everything for them, forcing the bar to be raised in expectations. So good people, since people, smart people, any people who by their very nature force others to improve themselves by default are hated. There is nothing they can do to change that reality because it goes against all the nature of human behavior.

We were all taught incorrectly in our government schools that we should spend a certain amount of time nurturing our relationships with other people no matter how dysfunctional they may be. For most the basic skills they learn in those formative years stay with them the rest of their lives. When there is a problem, they don’t first think how to solve the problem, instead they turn toward the social peer groups for support and whatever needs to be fixed languishes in purgatory waiting for leadership to come along and change the circumstances. But that never happens because leadership is not a group created attribute. Leadership can be channeled through people but it is not created by groups of people. It doesn’t come from the masses, it certainly doesn’t come from political parties. When political parties get together to raise money for a candidate or to strategically put up challengers for an upcoming election, the people participating could be said to be managing their objectives. Leadership happens when someone gives a motivating speech which pulls the objectives of everyone together for a common cause, it doesn’t happen as a default condition of group activity.

But like any group association where the members know the rules and have made sacrifices to their lives to live within them, the last thing they want to hear is that all those rules don’t matter and that some change in the form of leadership is challenging the order they have come to trust as a reality. They fall in love with the rules of conduct in group behaviors not because that conduct is good, but because they have come out on the plus side of it. In elements of the Republican party such as this loser I mention, they want a nice structured political group where the characters at play are controlled, the policies keep a progressive lean to them which has been there since the 1960s in America and any challenge to those assumptions are to be destroyed. For a normal person the value of the relationships in the group are their reason for being a part of the larger organization. But in my case, I just want things to work. So I could care less who says hi to me or who invites me to this or that. I go to things sometimes when invited if there is a good reason to go, but typically I don’t have the time. From my view, the relationships are irrelevant, they don’t do anything for me because I like to see good things happen and that usually means stepping over bad people who are in the way of something, so making friends never is my objective. Surprisingly, such a position makes far more friends than enemies because people like above the line people on an individual basis, but they find them repulsive in regards to group objectives.

As we step into yet another year, I have decided I’m not going to sugar coat little things like the criticisms that come from losers functioning from faulty positions when change is needed from a current approach. Regarding the GOP in Butler County I have watched many positive changes occur over the last decade and the results have made it better. Not just better for me, but better as a tactical political party. It doesn’t matter to me who gets mad in the process because making friends is not the objective, being successful is, and if losers think they can continue to contaminate success, they are living in a world that will be crashing down around them.

I gave two bits of advice to people on New Year’s Eve that are helpful to any general readership, the first is that no I’m not planning to run for office when there are lots of fun things to do in business at my particular age. Politics is something I consider serving the business world, so why would I do something in the service industry, because that’s what politics is. They certainly are rulers who give power to the office holders, and all too often that is how politicians view themselves, and would like to continue. But that’s not how it is. The other thing I said was that if you are the best at something you should never have to look over your back at those seeking an opportunity to ankle bite you out of existence. If you are the best who cares what other people are doing? If you really want to be successful you should never pay attention to what other people are doing. The moment you do care, is the moment that losers start controlling your life, and there are a lot of them. They were the ones who invented many of the problems of our modern age, because they have hidden the solution to problems within the limits of peer pressure. But if you are a person who excels in the things you do, there is nothing good that can come out of such a relationships. So why yield to it. The answer is, you don’t.

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.
