“Quality Time” The Art of Invincibility

It’s been a while since I looked at it but my grandkids have discovered an old video of me called “Quality Time” which was a demo reel of some of my whip work from about 15 years ago. While the quality of the video itself certainly isn’t great it was fun to watch it with them again. It was that video that actually did create some opportunities to work in Hollywood a bit and it was fun to reflect upon all those events that were in those videos. I had written a book called The Symposium of Justice so the demo reel was to set up book signings and all the other kinds of activities that go along with publishing a book. But my problem with the book was that I wanted to be the character of Cliffhanger in real life, so what followed these days of bullwhip work for me was doing in real life what I wrote about in the book. I didn’t want to grow up to be one of those pin headed authors who just thought and wrote about things. I wanted to actually do the things I wrote about, so that set my course into the politics that I have been so well known for. Yet again, things do evolve over time and now that I have grandchildren, and they are eager for knowledge of any kind, they are having fun discovering my past, and I’m having fun sharing it with them.

My daughters were in that video as little girls and so is my son in law before he married my oldest daughter. Bullwhips in my family has always been a thing and there was never anything fringe about it. For us it was part of our lifestyle and it was for me a way to encourage my kids about traditional American values. These kinds of things have always meant a lot to me so it was quite a wonderful thing to have my grandkids, all of them, suddenly have this interest in my work with bullwhips over the years and wanting to suddenly learn all they could. My oldest grandson especially is at that age where he’s starting to wonder what kind of person he might become, so he is starting to show a desire to learn bullwhip work. I have a tendency to let people come to their own way in life, but I won’t disguise my happiness that he is showing an interest and asking a lot of questions. He’s already showing great poise in the activity which for any kid is a great thing to learn.

Before my leap into political matters there was a lot of discussion on the family end about getting involved. Our life at the time was film festivals and invites to Hollywood events so why get involved in political activity? Because in doing so it would surely have an impact on my good bullwhip life and the future publication of books I wanted to write. Yet in my mind I had to know that I could be as authentic in real life as the characters I was writing about, otherwise I would feel like a phony. It’s not like I hadn’t been in lots of fights before and I felt I could take on anybody, anywhere, at anytime. And I did have a past with knowing hitmen who killed people for a living. Knowing politicians and corrupt judges who would jail one person for spitting on the sidewalk but let murderers go free only to kill again because they were friends of the political establishment wasn’t enough for me. Many of those people I actually knew in my even wilder days of my late teens ended up in my book The Symposium of Justice. However the lingering thought in my mind was I wanted a real challenge, I wanted to take on an established social system that was behaving as a villain, and to get through it. I always felt my use of bullwhips would carry me through anything, but I had to know for sure.

Happily, I can report that in the 15 years or so since many of the events in that demo reel occurred the whip has never let me down. People often say that a gun can trump a bullwhip in a combat situation but to my experience that just isn’t the case. While everyone knows I am a big advocate of the 2nd Amendment my first love will always be bullwhips. When I have one in my hand I don’t think any person or any group of people can launch a fantasy of attack against me. And that is a great feeling of freedom to have, to be able to function in the world without worrying about the intentions of other people. If you can do two things in life, maintain great intelligence where you can outthink your opponents, and then defend yourself from physical harm when they realize they can’t beat you any other way, then you can be truly free as a person. You can only give this to yourself. No government can give that freedom to you. In the East they have their version of martial arts. In the West we have ours, and I know enough to feel I can make myself invincible to any kind of melee attack. And that is the point in learning those types of things, not so you can go around beating people up, but so that you can gain the freedom of defending yourself.

And that’s the way it should be, I’m now at an age where I have something very valuable to offer young people and I can actually teach it beyond any kind of theory. The attribute that has plagued our societies over the years is this trend to bully people into doing things they don’t want to do, and governments are some of the biggest perpetrators. Prior to 2011 nobody had the stomach to take on the big government labor unions, they would threaten you with physical violence, and complete social castigation. They would vandalize your home, destroy your car, anything they could to bring harm to you if you stood in the way of getting what they wanted. And yes, when I became the face of standing against those activities they did try all those things and I did what I do. I felt I was uniquely positioned to stand up to them, and I am happy to have those stories to tell now as not just a writer’s theory but a practitioners expertise. There is a great freedom in being a master of something that everyone knows they can’t duplicate to use against you.

In that regard it gives me great joy to pass this stuff along to this new generation. Its nice that they are interested but its even better to know that they are learning the art of invincibility in the process. The old stories that there is somebody out there who is always faster, stronger, and better than you are falsehoods. It is possible to be the best and to stay that way. And with that comes a respect that can’t be bought or taken from you no matter how much others want to work to do so. Admittingly, it has been an obsession of mine to put myself in the worst case scenarios possible and see if I still land on my feet. In that video I had accomplished so much up to that point, enough to make a nice demo reel. But I didn’t really want to be just another writer, actor, or celebrity. I wanted to be the real deal. And the benefit of that is that I can honestly tell this new generation how to get through life honestly and without any paralyzing fear, which is the best freedom that there is. I may have traded some fame and fortune for the experience, but believe me, it was very much worth every bit of it.

Why the American Border Has Value and Why We Should Judge Others

Of course, what nobody will say is that the border of the United States has a value that has been lost in the countries where immigrants are coming from and they desire that value intensely. But of course, that value must be protected otherwise it won’t be there for anybody else in the future. What the open border advocates won’t say is that their plan is precisely that. In order to see their goals of global fruition come to light they must remove value from the politics of immigration so that everyone is equally lost to bad philosophic values. In that way the Republic that is the United States represented by capitalism economically would have millions of socialists within it from other failed countries that could vote an insurrection into place giving rise to those global goals. The problem is why those other countries produced such bad results to inspire people to flood the American border. The reality is that all that pain and suffering was done on purpose to invoke the insurrection, and that is the real problem.

A few years ago I had a niece, (I supposed I still do) who started running around with a bunch of bad people. She started smoking, doing drugs and getting all tattooed up like a lot of dumb kids do these days. I tried to pull her aside and tell her what a mistake she was making. At the time she was still around 15 so there was time to save her. But her parents were idiots and had programmed all the wrong kind of things into her mind for which she couldn’t possibly escape. We had a big family fight, for which she was the cause and we haven’t spoken since. Her parting words to the rest of us were that we weren’t supposed to “judge” her.

I thought her plea not to judge was mystifying. Where did she get the idea that society wouldn’t judge her if she made a complete idiot of herself and essentially ruined herself for life? Here was this little baby who 15 years prior we welcomed to the world with open arms and love. And what she did with all that love was toss it out the window on a self-abuse tour that was absolutely destructive and disrespectful to all that we had given her up to that point in her life. Of course, we were going to judge. Every right-minded person does who values what they do. Judgment is an essential navigation tool through life, and without it you end up with a mistake prone idiot, like what she had become.

She learned it from her parents who never took responsibility for anything they did. Everything in their life is the fault of someone else. I refer to those types of people as below the line people, because they are perpetual victimizers of their own fate. Somehow along the many years liberals had embedded this idea of victimization into their political platform and it ended up as part of our public school curriculum which people like my niece learned growing up. So as they entered those tough adolescent years where escape velocity from their parent’s arms seem like the most immediate need any of them ever have their belief was that no matter what they did, nobody would judge them for it. Well, she and all the rest of them were wrong. I judge everyone, and for good reason.

When I first could smell smoke on her at a family gathering, I took the opportunity to let her know I was concerned for her. She told me all the things I wanted to hear then climbed into the back seat of some loser’s car that very night to roll in the debaucheries of low lifes. Before we could blink she was getting tattoos and her mom was playing along with it because she didn’t want to be judged as a failed mom. So to be cool she failed to pass judgment. Before anyone knew it, a solid middle-class family who had just a few years before been considered economically to be a successful family unit were not barely qualified to be trailer trash. Their family went from good people to bad in a matter of a few years leaving them to this very day to be the example of all the things you shouldn’t do in life.

This whole story isn’t about my family, or a little branch of it that failed. It’s about how bad ideas and a lack of judgment can destroy what’s good easily and with great finality. Even if she wanted to, my niece could never restore her good name within the family and return to the days she enjoyed prior to her fifteen years on earth. And that is very sad, for everyone. But actions have consequences and love can be lost if it is abused. Love for all matter of definitions is a value judgement. Once the value has been robbed then the statement has no meaning. We can say we love our country, but if the value of that country is robbed, then what do we love? Nothing. And in the manner of families the possessive tendency of saying its “my family” indicates a value for what you love. But if the love is abused or even removed, then there is nothing to hold the family together and everything falls apart into debauchery and bad behavior—especially among young people trying to escape making the same mistakes as their parents, but are guaranteeing that they will become just as big of a loser as they were through the child’s bad actions.

The same is true of nations. All these countries outside of the United States have been told by their governments and culture that they could have socialism, that they could have kids by the dozen with no job or income to support them, and that they could live in dirt huts and have a good life living under authoritarian rule. Then when it doesn’t work out who could blame them for wanting to flee to the American border where at least they might have a shot at a good life? The question is, why was their home country so bad to begin with? Well, it’s because their countries were led by all the wrong decision-making parameters and they produced a bad society destined to fail, much like my niece. Judging bad decisions from good ones is the key to understanding. But you simply can’t talk about immigration without first discussing values, why people want to flee from one country and go to another. I would declare that the philosophy of the failed country was on purpose, to inspire desperate people to flee to the American border and to flood it with socialist voters who would collapse the capitalist system for the sake of global socialism. But in that transaction, Americans have every right in the world to declare a value judgment which could result in their own ending. It’s not out of compassion that we are obligated to drop values and judgments to those who are living failed lives. It is out of an obligation that we do pass judgment and force value back into the discussion, because that is the only way other countries, or other people will learn the error of their ways, and correct the behavior.

The Obsession of Fecal Matter and creation of a typical Democrat

It’s by no accident that young children starting at the age of 2 are impressed with fecal matter and their ability to make noise by belching, or farting. The act of discharging waste from the human body is to the infant mind an act of creation so they are often quite proud of themselves for it. But of course we are all supposed to grow out of that stage and realize that any real creation comes from thinking, not just discharging bodily waste. However, all too often there are deep psychological problems that emerge from the parental relationships which retard children into suppressed development and these obsessions with fecal matter persist into adolescents and even early adulthood, especially these days were thought is discouraged, and obedience promoted. Under such a line of thinking, obedience to the body’s natural waste process only aggravates the emotional link to an obsession with fecal matter which lasts well into adulthood, and encourages yielding to the forces of nature, not in dominating them.

You can see this trend in any typical comedy these days produced by Hollywood where they are trying to appeal to this retarded state within their audiences. The sounds of farts and belching are common in these stories of stupidity which celebrate the unfinished product of human gestation, that forever fails to launch. Whether the cause is just bad parenting, or a deliberate clipping of the wings by the adults responsible for the growing child, it is quite common these days for young people, especially males, to never give up on it and to continue well into adulthood their fascination with fecal matter.

Of course the way its supposed to be is that children grow out of this debilitating state well before puberty and our cultures of earth used to promote such activity leaving the young man or woman prepared to face life intellectually developed beyond such fascinations. Farting, belching and even sexual endeavors involving fecal matter in any way are supposed to leave our minds as intelligence replaces primal concerns and by the age of 16 to 18 years of age we are supposed to enjoy the benefits of our own independence and the intellectual journey that comes from a fully developed mind. Yet when the mind fails to develop all the way what we end up with is a kind of man-child that is eternally dependent on others so functionally, and politically speaking, this is how a Democrat is formed. Under the conditions of personal independence where a person learns to function on their own after 18 years under the care of their parents, a healthy-minded person should be able to function independently within the world around them, which of course leads to a more conservative, self-reliant approach to life and its problems.

Becoming a Democrat doesn’t just happen, it is part of the development process, a person who never learns to think for themselves is prone to falling to this political ideology due to their undeveloped minds. The evidence is in their behavioral characteristics, a love of demented childish elements such as the smelling of farts and thinking that it’s an act of creation and even fecal matter obsession. This topic came to my mind as one of my grandsons was watching the YouTube sensation, Blippi, which I thought was a nice cross between Pee Wee’s Playhouse and Mr Rogers for children. A very energetic approach to modern video programming for very young children. But a quick check into the past of the real life character of Stevin John who invented and plays the character of Blippi will reveal that his first antics as a self-published YouTuber was a made up character called Steezy Grossman, a boy born from poop after anal intercourse. In one of Stevin’s grossest and now most embarrassing videos titled the Harlem Shake, Stevin actually defecated on the naked body of his friend grossing out audience members. Of course today that same person has found great success in Blippi and has deals worked out with Amazon Prime and a future agreement with Netflix to produce original content, so Stevin John is embarrassed of his early activity. He’s now almost 30 as of this writing and success in life has developed him into further intellectual understanding leaving him quite ashamed of his first Steezy Grossman character.

It should be alarming to anyone that the act of defecating on anybody would be funny, let alone to tie it to complex adult sexual rituals. Early in my days as a young adult I worked at a car lot and had to spend long hours with grown men competing for a sale that came by occasionally. I was very alarmed, and continue to be to this day to learn how many normal looking adults enjoy sexual practices that involve anal penetration, or just as a star of the event. One particularly sexually obsessed salesman who looked perfectly normal and was about twenty years older than me at the time told stories every day about the sexual exploits of he and his wife which often involved other people. His favorite sexual experience was to lay under a glass table and watch his wife defecate onto it straight at his face, protected by the glass so he could watch the whole thing occur. Their idea of a Friday night was to literally defecate on each other while people watched and he was quite obsessed with the practice. It should come as no surprise that he was a bleeding heart Democrat who despised Ronald Reagan who was president at the time. I understood even back then that the salesman was functioning from an undeveloped mind and had emerged into adulthood with a primal childhood yearning for the first creations learned by a young mind, the bodily discharge of waste, and to think of it as acts of creation.

Democrats understand too well that their political philosophy is rooted in bad behavior, so that is why they encourage more of it socially, their movies are dumb and adolescent in their concerns, their social outlook is one of dependency, the way a child needs adults in their lives to change a diaper or to pick them up and put them in a seat. The child who grows physically, but not emotionally learns to be a dependent on society at large and it never leaves them. You can tell who they are by their obsessions with farting, belching, and other gross adult behaviors. While little kids grow up and away from these traits under the ideal conditions, the future Democrat never does. They think it’s just as funny as a young 20 something to play with fecal matter, because they never learned as children that its gross, but they learned to think of it as something exciting that are elements of their first creative impulse.

For a number of years I have been a plant manager and had to deal with all the reports of when and where a bathroom needed the care of maintenance. I have never grown used to the number of reports where some employee actually picked up their own fecal matter either out of the toilet or off the floor ignoring the toilet all together and wrote messages on the stalls with it as if it were a pencil. Knowing all the employees I would not even fathom that any of them would do something so gross, yet many of them did. Those incidents occurred more than anyone would guess, and the root cause of the behavior was in the stunted development they experienced as children. But one thing became very obvious as investigations into who did these things became known, and what I can report on the matter is that not a single one of them voted for George Bush or Donald Trump. They always vote for Democrats because that is the nature of the people who vote under that political platform. They are undeveloped losers who are stuck in that age 2 mentality, and they have no way as adults to deal with the world but through liberal politics.

Brexit

The HBO movie released in January, Brexit: The Uncivil War staring Benedict Cumberbatch as Dominic Cummings was exceptionally good. I thought it was stunning that most of the movie was shot from the perspective of the “leave” position. I kept waiting for the liberal spin on the whole thing which eventually did come during the last five minutes of apologetic musings about what a travesty the whole endeavor had been. But up to that point the movie did a great job of showing how the Brexit deal started and how it ended up shocking the world a few months ahead of the Donald Trump election in 2016. I understand very well the role Cummings played in the movement that did shock the world to its very foundations because at precisely that moment we were going through the same kind of thing in the United States and I had a front row seat. So the movie was very interesting to me as a reflection as to how we arrived where we are today across the world. However, the big difference between the United States and Brexit as they explored in the end of the movie, Cummings did create the platform for the rebellion against the establishment, but there was no leadership to take Brexit to the next level beyond the vote. Whereas in America, President Trump did provide that leadership and has been very successful. The filmmakers of this Brexit movie seemed happy to role in the rebellion so long as they said sorry in the end. But Hollywood won’t be making any such comparative movies about the Trump victory, because it was successful, and nobody involved is sorry.

Watching the movie put a lot of things in perspective in hindsight. As I’ve stated many times, the rebellions in Europe and America, within “western” culture were going to happen as a result of the autonomy we all have now with personal information. While the Brexit film focused on the data collection Cummings used to secure over 3 million new voters in 2016 to their cause, the reason for those voters activations is the real story. The feelings people had which led to Brexit were there whether or not anybody wanted to admit it, just as they are in the United States in what elected Trump in the same fashion. Once voters had an option, no matter how much data collection anybody was able to do, the sentiment was deep and long-standing, and once people thought they had a shot at something new, they took it.

The political left all around the world is still apparently shocked by all this. They obviously haven’t gotten over it in Europe and they certainly are lost in the United States. The roots of the political left are rooted in counter-culture rebellion, so they understood Brexit from that vantage point and were able to make a good movie as a result. But they now find themselves in the perspective of the “stay” people from the movie. There are some scenes at the end of the movie where the political left represented here by Hollywood writers, producers, and directors are having this discussion with themselves, and it was fascinating to watch. For them these elections in 2016 were real tragic events, they thought they understood the way the world worked, and they want to blame Russia, or billionaire funding of data collection as the silver bullet that wrecked their world. But honestly, the anti-left rejection by voters was always there, it just needed to have the issue framed for them in ways they felt compelled to act upon.

That is precisely the reason that the MAGA hats in the United States are causing so much consternation, because the messaging inspires action by those who have been typically left out of the process of governing. In the movie Brexit, they had a few scenes with focus groups of what the establishment thought were typical voters and it clearly showed how the new way of doing things outpaces the old. Hillary Clinton got caught in the same trap, using old analysis and campaign professionals to stay within an institutional framework while the world was moving toward much more thought autonomy. There are more options for individuals than ever in the history of the world and everyone should have seen this coming, that the political parties of old did not fulfill those changing needs. So the old way wasn’t going to work the moment an option was created. The MAGA hats are constant reminders as we now move into the 2020 elections that the political left still doesn’t understand what happened. They understand what happened to them, which is obvious in the Brexit movie, but they don’t understand why or what to do about it. That is the reason for their panic, and their need for the Mueller investigation, to buy them time to get their own messaging for 2020. But the time is up and they are entering that season without any answer and that has caused this anger toward the hats over the last few months. While Brexit struggles to actually move from the EU without any real leadership, President Trump has taken the ball and ran with it and is now scoring lots of touch downs. The movement of rebellion is here to stay.

Taking several steps back to look at the situation properly it is clear that no institutional figure in western culture understands what is going on and they have gone to great strides to revert everything back to the norms of yesterday which will never happen again. The reason isn’t because of Donald Trump, or Dominic Cummings, but because human beings desire autonomy. Western culture acknowledges personal autonomy which is why it’s even an option. In the East everything is sacrificed for the greater good, so in the battle between east and west, that fight will play out along economic lines which is happening presently. The meeting with Trump and North Korea is certainly part of that plan, to take a hostile communist regime that can barely feed their own people and turn them into a capitalist haven, in spite of all the help China tries to give them. Trump is playing that chess game brilliantly. But the real internal battle within western civilization is the fight over what role institutions played among people who desire much more autonomy. When there were only 3 or 4 networks on television and people still read newspapers, the establishment thought they had everything all bagged up. But now people have too many choices for rigid institutions to exist so statically, and that is the cause of the political change. That is why Brexit happened and why President Trump is in the White House.

The conflict that has resulted isn’t caused by exploiting hate for change, but the hate that has been generated by restricting human options. All political parties have insisted on not listening to their customers, the voters, and instead giving them limited options politically, which has caused the hate we see today. Those emotions were unavoidable, there will never be a going back to the good ol’ days of blind compliance. That’s not the world we are living in. The producers of the Brexit movie understood that for most of the film, even if they had to throw some red meat back to Hollywood at the end. The film is certainly worth watching.

What To Do About the State of the Union Speech: Government workers should find another job and get on with their life

I’m assuming that the Democrats will stall on their three week deal and that President Trump will have to shut the government down again.  I think he thinks he needs to appear to move toward a deal for which the Democrats will blow it.  President Trump can obviously do what he wants about the State of the Union speech he is supposed to give to Congress. However, it would be my advice to him that he give his speech anyway, but to a MAGA rally to show the Washington establishment that life goes on with or without the government endorsement of activity. Nancy Pelosi cannot be allowed to have the kind of power she is trying to display in stopping the State of the Union speech. The halls of congress are not that valuable, especially if they are infested with socialists, as they are presently. The State of the Union speech is a phony affair full of kingly assumptions and is something that should be reinvented anyway. So why not take the speech directly to the people instead of playing the Beltway game? If Trump had a State of the Union rally which filled up the seats with MAGA hats and an overflow crowd, the optics would be quite terrifying to the Democrats and the national media at how much power and persuasion the president really did have even after the last election, and would go a long way to really solving the problems we currently have in government, so why not break with tradition and do it that way? I certainly would.

Of the 800,000 federal workers not receiving a paycheck for the second period in a row due to the government shutdown, around 57,000 are from the TSA which is a recently created branch of government that was only unionized around 2012. It’s not like they have a deep history of employment in America. Previously airlines were responsible for their own security so all the sob stories about the poor TSA workers is a moot point in my book. They shouldn’t be government employees, but airport employees and they shouldn’t be unionized. It’s that simple. I’m not a fan of the TSA, I hate dealing with them at airports—especially Chicago and Atlanta. They are a terrible creation created by panic driven politicians overreacting to global terrorism which is the fault of the political class anyway, for failing to really deal with the causes of terrorism to begin with. We don’t need more TSA agents, more security, and more government unions. We need a lot less.

If it were me in that 800,000 who weren’t getting a check from the government, I can promise that I wouldn’t be waiting around for the shutdown to break loose. I’d work another job to cover my bills. I would have done that after the first day of the shutdown. There is no way in the world that I would put my family at risk by sitting around waiting for a bunch of politicians to resolve the government shutdown. In fact, not all government workers are sitting around waiting for the situation to be resolved, Michael Mateos, a graphic designer and contractor for the federal government has been selling Star Wars models as extra income generating a few thousand dollars a month, which is a great idea. His story is what I’d consider a distinctly American one, and one I can support. People like him are what our country is all about, not a bunch of parasites sitting around waiting for the world to call them back to work.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/this-furloughed-employee-found-a-unique-way-to-make-money-during-the-shutdown-2019-01-16

I can be sure to say that I would not be one of the 800,000 because I’ve been around a few years and can report that I’ve seen many disappointing work situations that resulted in layoffs, terminations, or greatly reduced hours—and I have never ever in my life a single day not received a pay check. I have at times worked three jobs at a time all days of the week to make sure my family had what they needed and I still work 12 to 16 hours ever single day toward successful implementation of occupational goals to ensure that I do what needs to be done to keep that trend alive, and that’s the kind of mindset all Americans should have in my book. I don’t understand and will never understand a person who gets a check from one job who sits around waiting for that job to be resolved. I don’t understand the teacher who will strike and hold up classes for little kids then go back to work after they get a 3% collective bargaining agreement and only then declare how much they love the kids while their fat asses were previously in the streets protesting the tax payers for more money. And I surely don’t understand the federal worker sitting around crying about their two missing paychecks when we have the hottest economy in the world and everyone is hiring. I’d get another job either temporarily or permanently, but I wouldn’t be waiting.

Nancy Pelosi indicated that the State of the Union speech wasn’t important anyway, essentially saying that President Trump wasn’t important, and that we should hold up everything until the shutdown is over. Well, I think we should lay off all 800,000 of those workers and privatize their positions. And Trump’s border wall is a must, and if he can’t get the money from Congress, then he needs to do it another way and run right over them. Obviously, the Democrats are all about changing America from a capitalist zone into a socialist one, and they do not have our best interests in mind. So who cares what they think? Trump should show them that life goes on, the speech gets done whether or not its at congress and the government workers aren’t that important, especially at the newly created TSA.

This is a time that I disagree with Sean Hannity over the State of the Union speech, who cares if President Trump is announced in the halls of congress, “Mrs Speaker, I present the President of the United States.” I don’t want to see Trump shaking hands with Nancy Pelosi, not now and not six months from now. Honestly, I’d like to see him body slam her in a WWF ring, and I say that with a sensitivity to equal rights. I’m fine with treating women equally to men, including in a cage match in front of 100,000 people. I don’t like Nancy Pelosi, I don’t want my president to work with her. Democrats have shown their hatred of my presidential pick and they have unleashed the forces of the FBI to attempt to change the election, and they are spying on us and trying to use that information to destroy our capitalist society, then lecturing us on the way we should all live, I don’t feel a need to be nice to those people and I certainly don’t want Trump to make nice with them at a State of the Union speech. In essence, the State of the Union is that we are at war as a nation, so we might as well admit that to ourselves. Forget the pomp of a speech in Congress with Nancy Pelosi standing in the background. Just have the speech as a MAGA rally and take it directly to the people and let the world see that life goes on without government workers and corrupt politicians. If I was Trump that is what I would do and I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s not what ended up happening. Change is good, especially when it takes power away from people like Nancy Pelosi. And as far as the government shutdown goes, I don’t care if they miss the next 50 pay checks. I’d say to them, find another job and get on with your life.

Trump the Change Agent: Why we have to have a bloody fight that hurts lots of people, because its healthy

Now the panic is really setting in, Democrats have drawn a line in the sand over the border wall debate and the government has been left unfunded causing a partial shutdown that has no resolution on the horizon. In companies that are really in trouble it is common to hire a new CEO or some other form of “change agent” and disrupt the siloed culture that caused the problems for the company and now Washington D.C. from the lowly reporter to the radical activist in Congress is learning why people elected Donald Trump into the White House. Reverting back to how things were never was on the table. Many people like me want Trump to fight the Democrats on this funding issue and to force their hand finally into revealing what parasites they have been all along. To the culture that has been in power I’m sure the events of today are very scary and disconcerting. But it had to happen, and should have happened a long time ago. Yet because it didn’t, we are having that fight now.

The hatred of everything Trump does is natural from a culture that has decided it never wanted to change. The Beltway as it is called is filled with people looting off the taxpayer and making great livings as government ants pushing and pulling paperwork around from desk top to desk top in a world that has gone digital. Many of the government workers that are attached to operating an ineffective government aren’t needed but are simply there for the whims of the aristocrats who want to believe they are more than they are and are paramount cogs in a wheel of progress managing the affairs of mankind. Even the Fox News pundits and news reporters operating on the Hill have expectations consistent with accepting a defunct culture that is entirely too expensive and is in tremendous need of change.

When a change agent enters a scenario especially in business, the walls go up quickly as nobody wants to be rooted out as incompetent. If they can make the life of the change agent miserable and attack them before it is discovered just how terrible the previous culture was, they will do it with every passive aggressive weapon devised from the imaginations of civilization. If you ever want to see the face of true evil tell a group of corporate executives that they have been spending too much time next to the water cooler talking about irrelevant events, or that the corner office with the nice window is going to be changed into a bathroom. Their faces will literally melt and the resistance is always fierce.

In the great book Leading Change by John Kotter centering on his Harvard Business ideas of the eight ways to change, most corporate cultures like political ones are not aware that they need to change and there is a great need to overcome their resistance and to build a consensus toward more productive results. But putting up with deficient thinking is simply not an option. Change is always needed as conditions are always evolving. Yet when methods of evoking change to meet market conditions are removed what you end up with in every situation is massive corruption, such as we see not only in our own federal government but all governments. The more barriers to change such as in totalitarian regimes, the less opportunities for change. Some would argue that everything is fine so why change it, what is ignored in such contemplations is that market conditions are always moving forward and that change is always needed to meet those conditions. It’s not an if question but a “when.” Not even the best football team in the world can escape this reality, every year change must take place to make their organizations conducive to any hope of victory. What a team did five years ago can’t be the same as is required for the upcoming season.

Yet in our government the corrupt money has been working against our Constitution, the open border craze is in full bloom and most of the legal minds and their apprentices have accepted the very un-American concept of a borderless world. The current culture of the Beltway is built on the money that pours into political campaigns from all types of sources and the assumptions that have been made have been directed away from national sovereignty into a mixed bag of values thrown together haphazardly like a kind of stew to be consumed by those willing to be the first in line to eat it. By the time it gets to the rest of us very little will remain and that is the grand ruse that has been going on for quite some time. The Washington D.C. culture has not had American interests in mind, they have rather put their own weaknesses and corrupt principles into the decision-making mechanisms and the result is a government that does not represent the people of America, but rather exploits them for the political power provided to those most corrupted by the status quo.

Change has been needed in American government for a very long time and that was the reason Donald Trump was elected. He promised to be a change agent and so far he has lived up to it, and where the previously corrupt culture on all political sides of the spectrum are guilty, they all equally hate the idea that that coveted corner office will be turned into a bathroom. The rules of power acquisition are being turned on their heads and none of them like it. But it has to be done even if they all grow so miserable that they commit suicide in their reluctance to accept the necessity for change. Getting rid of Trump from office won’t solve their problem just as firing a change agent in a corporate culture won’t take away the needs for change. But to their underdeveloped minds, it’s the only reality they can accept because they are so ruined that they can think of nothing else.

James Comey is just such a figure, listening to him speak of his “Washington D.C.” “Beltway” culture you will get a glimpse of nightlife on a Friday or Saturday sipping wine and listening to live bands playing 70s rock songs in tightly packed bars filled with like-minded, and over perfumed government workers insulated from reality by their larger than average pay checks and the vacuum of protections awarded them as members of the elite culture. It didn’t matter that Comey was an FBI Director, he could have been a college intern trying to sleep with their boss after too many drinks in one of those evenings, the culture is just as corrupt from top to bottom and the essence of the evil is that they expect the rest of us to pay for their entitlements without giving anything back. They want to rule us all, live the dream of aristocratic assumptions, but they want none of the downsides, especially when it comes to responsibility. They are happy to sell us all out to whomever is paying the checks because they have accepted unprincipled lives hidden beyond grand philosophic yearnings but their method of interacting with those conditions is to pass responsibility for it all to those not present which of course is the foundations to all corruption. In such an environment even the most well-intentioned soul becomes the vilest human being in the world.

This fight has to happen, and bodies need to be left in the wake. It needs to hurt because change is needed and that is precisely why Donald Trump was sent to Washington D.C. It is not acceptable to listen to those resisting that needed change try to remove him from office, or to bust him for made up political crimes, because his job is and will always be a change agent elected to conduct a service to the people of the United States. And that is a hard reality that the Beltway culture is going to have to live with. It doesn’t matter if over a million workers don’t get their pay checks, or how much political donors cry about a border wall that hurts their bottom line because its harder for drugs to get into the United States driving up their costs of doing business, what matters is what the people of America want. And corruption in Washington D.C. from the media to the seats in Congress are not viable realities of acceptability.

Take the Shutdown: It could be a lot worse

Shut it down! Shut down the government, forever as far as I care, and build the wall! Build the wall tall, and wide and draw that line in the sand and stick to it. It is time for an impasse and to stop the Democrats from dancing in Washington bars to the music of American Pie, driving our Chevys to the levy but the levy is dry. The levy is dry and the Chevys are out of business and its time to have the real conversations that should have always been going on, walls mean a recognition of American values and those values aren’t in expanding government as a primary employer of so many non-essential employees. The government is too big, too expensive, and too damn slow and it needs to be cut back, and budget showdowns like the one we are dealing with are just the ticket. Bravo President Trump!

There was a lot made about the flexibility of president Trump to cave into what Chuck Schumer called the “hard right” where voices like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and even me were pretty hard on the president not to cave to the pressures of the Hill, to pass another budget impasse and kick the can down the road into January. But that is typically the role of any CEO, they listen to all the conditions and make the best deal for their side of things. Trump is always willing to listen, so he changes positions a lot. But when a radio personality like Rush Limbaugh makes a statement, its hard not to pay attention because he does have his finger on the pulse of the world. Limbaugh has conservatively 14 million weekly listeners, more than that if you count hour by hour ratings through the week. That more than most magazines and television shows, and is a huge platform to speak from. But those listeners don’t come out of thin air, they are a very real population sector that isn’t represented by other forms of entertainment, and they effectively make up the Trump base. Why shouldn’t Trump listen when the noise of Washington D.C. is attempting to use chaos as a cover for pork belly money projects that exacerbate the problem of out of control budgets?

And what bleeds our budget in the U.S. economy more than a lack of border security? Sure if people want to buy drugs they’ll find a way to get them, but why make it easy for enemies of America to poison our work force? Personally speaking I am an employer and I hire hundreds of people every year, if I want to hire 5 traditionally white American citizens, 3 of them will fail their drug test. It’s a massive problem and the enemies of America have been successful in poisoning the traditional workforce with the product they smuggle across the Mexican border with North America. I would go so far to call it a detrimental circumstance. Now also as an employer, I have my needs and they will be fulfilled, but it requires every company to think outside the box to deal with that problem. So why make it easy for such malicious characters to continue shipping the poison into America?

Without question, Democrats are all about open borders and dissolving the sovereignty of nations so that there can be one global government managed by the United Nations. That has been their plan for a long time and now that things are coming unraveled due to the Trump presidency, the strings are showing. It wasn’t so obvious to most people before because they believed all this garbage about continuing budget resolutions and monstrous government projects that just employ people to play on Facebook all day getting paid for doing nothing. Government didn’t listen when people were speaking. I have been speaking about this lunacy for years, all of my adult life. Trump was elected because many people like me stopped listening to the bullshit and started demanding results. Trump is in the White House because of the Rush Limbaugh audience and the NRA members, and the Sean Hannity audience then to a smaller extent the Fox News audience, the people who still like Clint Eastwood and John Wayne movies, the products of old Hollywood. And the pain that Democrats and Rino Republicans are feeling is that they tried to institute a change agency culture from the perspective of the Beltway and people have rejected it.

There are places in California and in New England that have subscribed to this Beltway culture of big government progressivism renamed from its previous communist terminology. Seattle and Portland are cities that are openly embracing socialism for instance. But most of the rest of North America isn’t going for it and the momentum is shifting away from them and they can feel it. There was literal desperation in Nancy Pelosi’s voice when they reacted to Trump’s proposal to shut down the government over Christmas if he didn’t get his border wall money. Because if he is successful, they will lose forever their leverage of public sentiment and that will literally destroy their base, which is already in trouble from young radicals wanting to pull the entire party further to the political left. What all of Washington D.C. culture has been espousing for decades has been out of touch with the people who put them in office and Trump was sent to the White House to clean it up. All Rush Limbaugh did was remind President Trump of that.

I did my own personal bits on the matter and we all should, after all if President Trump doesn’t have our support when he needs it most the options for us are a bloody one, and nobody wants to see that. I don’t want bloodshed, I always prefer a legal means of solving a problem. But we can’t give our country away to a world desperate to loot off our progress and to insist on socialist forms under a global flag. If the world wants help becoming independent and more capitalist in nature, I’m all for helping them out. But I am not going to allow America to be destroyed because the world’s education institutions produced a false philosophy rooted in Karl Marx and Immanuel Kant instead of the great late Adam Smith. Adam Smith’s thoughts on capitalism are far more powerful and the proof is in America. To protect that value for the world to see we need a border wall which is exactly what Democrats are afraid of revealing, the obvious differences between capitalism and socialism. If drug dealers and Marxist revolutionaries cannot flood the American population with Trojan horse insurgents, then how does the Democrat party survive in the future? The answer is that they don’t.

So I applaud the stand the Trump administration is taking. I fully support it. I don’t care if thousands of government workers are at the homeless shelters out of work, because its better than armed insurrection. A lot less blood will be spilled this way, which is how the system is supposed to work. But a word of caution to the big government types, the CIA, the FBI and all the losers who watch every little thing I do as well as others like me who listen to Rush Limbaugh, are proud NRA members and are severely anti-drug, anti-illegal immigration and Trump supporters through thick and thin—be happy Trump is protecting you from a real judgement day. Take the government shut down and shut the hell up—for your own good.
