The Nothing Part 2 and Michael Jackson

Way back in March of 2013 I wrote an article called “The Nothing” which was a term used in the kid’s fantasy movie, Neverending Story to describe the kind of evil that destroys people. I used the term The Nothing to describe what I saw happening in public education and emerging into the world at large and of course as is always the case, I turned out to be one hundred percent right. However, unfortunately as is always the case too, people were too slow to understand and now our world is much more of a mess. Some people listen, but most don’t, and they have to find out the hard way everything. And that is where we find ourselves today, wondering why socialism is making noise in our political world, why our national debt is up over $22 trillion dollars, and why the HBO movie Leaving Neverland was even made.

I watched at least part one of Leaving Neverland which is about the child molestation of several young boys under the seduction of the pop star Michael Jackson and couldn’t help but see The Nothing hard at work. There were so many things wrong with that entire story that the reality of it is nearly mind-blowing. I still like Michael Jackson by the way. The movie didn’t change my opinion of him. Rather it elaborated the kind of insanity that I believe he fell into as a result of his life. It looks obvious to me that Michael Jackson started regressing into a much more childlike personality during the release of his album, “Bad.” He was clearly missing some screws and those screws came loose in a major way in the years after that hit album and the release of Black or White.

I think Leaving Neverland is a really good documentary about how screwed up our society is under the influence of The Nothing. The parents of the supposedly molested kids ruined their lives in pursuit of the kind of fame that being close to Michael Jackson gave them. Do I believe them, that Michael Jackson was sneaking out of his house in the back seat of a typical Los Angeles family car to play at a kids house away from the spotlight in the way that a typical 6-year-old might? Maybe, which indicates serious problems emotionally in Michael Jackson which wouldn’t surprise me. But he’s also not around to defend himself and I don’t know that I trust any of the interviews shown in Leaving Neverland. I think there are elements of truth in them but the whole story certainly isn’t told. But none of that really matters because the real villain is The Nothing in all actuality. The Nothing obviously overwhelmed the very sensitive talent in Michael Jackson who wanted to be a kind of overman but just couldn’t deal with the amount of evil in the world. A quick review of the Michael Jackson video “Speed Demon” will show this collision of a young overman wanted to deal with the shackles of fame and fortune as it sought to feed off him.

Jackson was at the top of the world and what he found there was a kind of hell on earth of depleted characters that weren’t worth spit and it appears to have shocked him to his core. His “Smooth Criminal” character had lost his smoothness and he went deep inside his own childlike yearnings to find redemption. He sought to start all over again where people made sense before adulthoods wiped away the purity of a living soul. What Jackson was seeking with his costumes and way of living was what I often talk about in the great book The Oz Principle where the remarkable work by Roger Connors, Tom Smith and Craig Hickman used another fantasy story, The Wizard of Oz to describe above the line and below the line conduct. To mix metaphors here, properly, The Nothing wants for nothing more in the entire world but to pull people into Below the Line Thinking. It seeks the destruction of everything trying to climb above the line so that the laws of expectations in existence are so low that nobody even tries to do anything.

And if you really get down to it, that is why we have a $22 trillion debt, because government has encouraged too many people to use government services so that they essentially wouldn’t want to step above the line in their lives, but live below where they were easy to control by a centralized government. Government doing the work of The Nothing wants people dependent on them, it wants them on welfare, it wants them on government health care like CareSource and Medicaid. It want’s senior citizens on poultry Social Security and it seeks at every turn to destroy the positive effects of capitalism so that the crushing effects of socialism can be delivered. Our national debt is what happens when you have both capitalism and socialism fighting for the same country. And it’s why the Beltway wants to destroy Donald Trump, because he represents positive capitalism resisting crushing steps of centralized socialism. President Trump himself is a lot like Michael Jackson, not the child molester, but the energized spirit who wants to be an overman, to step above the line and to carry all of society on his back to take them there. Michael Jackson thought he could do it with his art and collapsed in on himself when he failed. Donald Trump is trying to do the same but with economics—something people can actually build their life with. But the forces against Trump are ominous and are inspired by The Nothing to destroy everything so that the entire world collapses below the line and stays there for good. That is the conflict of our modern times.

I watched the Oprah event after the Leaving Neverland HBO documentary and noticed that she was effectively there doing the work of The Nothing. With Michael Jackson dead now, it was easy to resurrect these old child molestation cases because the effort was never to protect the kids, but it was to destroy Jackson himself. Michael Jackson realized he was falling off the top star block and that the continued investigations into his life were jeopardizing his livelihood, so he made a very progressive album in Black or White to attempt to appeal to the progressive community. But they wanted him off the above the line art and entertainment sector and into the pits of tabloid news and speculation. President Trump is stronger than Jackson, but the intentions with him is the same as it is with figures like Jackson, to pull them off their mountaintops and into below the line thinking so that the parasites of existence can pluck them of their worth and then some. The Jackson story, the national debt and the antics of President Trump are essentially the content of the Friedrich Nietzsche novel Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Only Jackson never made it back to his mountain top hideaway to live out his days away from the parasites of below the line thinking. And Trump is too stubborn to give up, because he feels that it’s the last great thing he can do on this earth. But The Nothing wants to do nothing literally but destroy and it is that tendency in us all that feeds such a thing and makes monsters out of heroes and general misery throughout all of mankind. And it thinks its winning.

Chevrolet and Ford’s Circular Firing Squad

It continues to surprise me how many grown adults roll through their lives looking to advance through pity. It came to my mind quite sharply while watching a television commercial for Chevrolet showing that many Ford buyers were converting. While to people unbeknownst in the realm of reality might think that was a good thing the real story was completely avoided. Who cares that two American automobile companies in a circular firing squad were competing against each other? The real story is why that same Chevy truck isn’t being shipped to India, or Japan, or even South America. The real story isn’t that Chevy took away business from Ford, it’s that American car companies continue to lose to foreign competition. It would be much more meaningful if there were a commercial showing that car buyers were purchasing Chevy cars over Toyota or Honda. Foreign car markets continue to dominate in a field that should be exclusively an American specialty. After all, while cars are now abundant in the world, no place uses them to the degree that America does. That American cars are not first in the minds of drivers is a bigger concern and one that has many twists and turns of psychological imposition.

Without question it was the American automobile market that made them commonplace around the world. For a few decades it was American made cars that dominated the world stage and was yearned for by everyone. But the labor unions moved in and autonomy in innovation and delivery moved out while other countries entered the market and simply did better than the United States in manufacturing techniques and cost to quality the hammer of decision had been delivered and the big three automakers in America, Ford, GM and Chrysler found themselves on the outside looking in. The great city of Detroit which had been driven to growth by the global automaker started an eventual slide that would nearly take it off the map all together. That is the cost of bad decisions and stagnant thinking which can be viewed clearly when studying American car companies and the people who support them.

There is always a bit of arrogance when you speak with people who come historically out of those markets, an entitled feeling that we were great once, and that somehow, they were cheated because the world no longer valued them. That somehow the world was wrong in what it expected. But the truth is that the unions destroyed market innovation at the employee level. While the average Toyota worker in Japan ran to their restroom break, the American worker took their slow ass time and might even smoke a joint in the bathroom stall before returning back to the manufacturing line a half hour later. Little things like that in a company of tens of thousands add up into the final product and consumers can see and feel the difference.

When people who are just lazy in life wonder why they reach their later years getting run over by all the up and comers the problem isn’t the competition, it’s the lazy person themselves. The world wants to grow and move forward. It doesn’t want the restrictions of governments or even socialism. Only the lazy and unambitious are attracted to such things and at points in our life cycles, they may outnumber the strong and independent. But it is always the drive of the best and brightest that launch product and innovation into the global marketplace. When a consumer puts down their money for a gigantic purchase such as a new car, they aren’t buying the tradition of the name, which American car companies still seem to believe, they buy the best product. If a company cannot deliver value to a customer they’ll lose. Just as an employee will lose if they don’t continue to make themselves relevant to their employer, they’ll also be overrun by competitors who are hungry for knowledge and continue to grow intellectually much longer than the typical lazy person who wants the prestige of respect, but doesn’t want to do the work to continue to obtain it.

There is an assumption in the Chevy adds comparing themselves to Ford buyers that the rest of the world isn’t making cars. Let alone admitting that foreign markets are just much better in producing an automobile product. When presenting themselves to American markets their strategy is to just not admit that anybody else is out there and hope that their name might be enough to carry consumers into an American car purchase, and that is precisely why they are being destroyed by foreign competition. I mean who values the name of a Ford or Chevy over a BMW or Mercedes? There are still American patriots who will buy the Cadillac over the Mercedes but not nearly as many as there should be. That is the fault of the car companies to simply refuse to acknowledge their status in life and assume that their names meant more to the public than they really did.

How many people in life roll into their later years hoping that the ambitions they performed at the start of their careers would carry them through into their retirements. They are the kind of people who say, “boy, I did this or that back when I was in my 30s and I was really hot stuff.” But the lack the courage to continue to push themselves and take personal risks which inspire growth then wonder why everyone is passing them up. Those are the types of minds running General Motors and Ford these days, and is precisely why everyone is beating the hell out of them in the automobile market. It’s why Detroit declined out of relevancy being run in the ground by Democrat politicians who want to redistribute wealth created in the glory days of risk and reward thinking that names and titles would hold value well into the future. But the truth is that those things only hold value for about one generation. After that, new names come about out of competition and if you aren’t the best, you will likely be passed over in life, and that is the way it is.

A lot of people are timid by nature and by force they do one or two things great in their life because when you are young, you have to in order to get anywhere. But as soon as they get comfortable and achieve a level of respect among their peers, they lose their edge in thinking. And clearly a collection of such minds is running the American car companies. They are not attracting top talent to their companies and when they do get them, they aren’t keeping them. But the competition is, and it shows in the overall product. Chevy would have had a much better marketing approach if they could show that consumers were buying their product over Toyota and Honda. That would mean something because it is those companies who own the most market share. Beating Ford is like beating up a brother at the dinner table then calling yourself the master of the world. But the minute you step onto your front lawn mouthing off how tough you are, some other kid punches you in the mouth and shows you what the world really thinks of your toughness. America used to make the best cars, but not anymore. And until they change their attitude from the top to bottom, they never will.

Liberals Should Consider Themselves Lucky

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

The Invasion

There’s no other way to put it, from the very beginning it was an invasion of American soil by enemies of the Constitution and we allowed it to go on far too long. No sane person could say otherwise. The idea that people from other countries should be able to pour into the United States openly and without passports or any kind of identification is insane unless the perspective is viewed from the position of an enemy. Democrats clearly have been willing to play their part as a political party that can’t compete in the realm of debate and must rely constantly on new membership to stay in the game. For them they must have illegal immigration to stay relevant because they have essentially turned their backs on American ideas of ownership and responsibility to advance their causes. That is why anything they propose, such as the current bill in congress to eliminate the sales of private gun transactions, or extended restrictions on gun show loopholes should be considered as a hostile act by a foreign power, because all Democrats by their very affiliation have sided with the anti-Constitutional forces seeking from outside the United States to attack the foundations of freedom which prevent their open molestation of our continental resources.

The invasion was planned long ago, likely before World War II ever started. The Great Depression certainly was a direct result of the progressive invasion where government was seeking to put the clamps on the Roaring 20s open capitalism which flourished after World War I. So this isn’t a new thing but when we talk about making America Great Again, we are talking about an American sovereignty that wasn’t present before these events. We aren’t talking about racism, women’s rights, and immigration policies—these were all conditions that were on path to improvement because of the American Constitution. Meaning, they would have happened regardless of any progressive influence. The Civil War was fought by Republicans to free people of color and the women were on the same trajectory to vote. Democrats didn’t make those things happen, the American Constitution did. The world didn’t pay much attention until two world wars later the economic powerhouse that American capitalism produced showed that the United States was on a path to outpace the rest of the world in innovation, demographic freedoms, and individualized wealth, and the world couldn’t have that.

That’s when it was decided by enemies of the United States Constitution that the very foundation of America had to be scrutinized and challenged. Those enemies sought to take over American companies and institutions in an effort to deface the foundation documents which made so many good things happen. They sought to take over our media, they took over our public schools and embedded themselves in both our political parties with deep tentacles into the lobbying community to fund the effort. And that has now been going on for many decades and was and is currently an invasion—not with guns, but of voting power. The idea of flooding the American border with illegal immigration was to destroy the sovereignty of America and ultimately the Constitution of the United States, and we should all consider that an extreme violation of our good natures.

For every person who now supports the legalization of drugs and other socially disastrous practices it’s not cool to be a loser, and that is precisely what forces against America want, they want the people of America dumb, drunk, stoned and disasters of the human condition because it makes for an easy conquest. They want corrupt lawyers making huge sums of money off Americans divorcing each other over reckless sex antics and other unfocused adult pursuits rather than learning the words and meanings of the American Constitution so they can defend it under assault. The enemies of America want the citizens of the United States to bend over backwards for global approval and a surrender of sovereign values rather than defending themselves from the inevitable tyranny of jealous hostiles from around the world wanting to topple the most successful country in the world.

Anybody who is for open borders, unregulated socialist instruction in our public schools, and evolving legal understandings of the Constitution itself is an enemy of America and is taking part in the invasion, and they need to be dealt with. We have played nice with them for decades and gave them the benefit of the doubt, but they have shown themselves to be what they are, part of the invasion force that has intended to destroy our way of life and impose on us hostile intents from across both oceans—and they are happy about it. None of this was by accident, it was purposeful, and malicious and has been as cold as their proposals to destroy human life in the womb of a mother, and to push mothers out into the world under the banner of human rights just to have the ill intent to destroy the American family so that future bold specimens of freedom fighters defending the Constitution would not even be born, or conceived. The target of these attacks from day one of the invasion was the American family and the mothers who stood at the front of them. They didn’t want to just destroy them, but the children who would never be born.

Viewed in these ways the invasion is every bit as maniacal as any in history, as when Hitler bombed London, or took over Paris. The invasion is as audacious as anything history has ever presented but because it did not come with guns, but with policies and voting numbers, they managed to disguise their intentions and to hide their military maneuvers behind political correction. We blush at even suggesting that such an invasion is even happening because it’s not cool or socially mandated to even speak in such ways. Yet it has been happening before our very eyes. The borders are being invaded, our debt is up to $22 trillion and the global powers who have launched these efforts are wringing their hands together hoping that their plans will hold, that President Trump’s economy won’t turn the tables and that Americans won’t catch onto the nature of the invasion until it’s too late.

Part of the plan was to mire Americans in chaos so that they didn’t take the time to even read the Constitution and understand it, let alone defend it with their very lives. Most Americans today are so distracted by really stupid concerns that they don’t even see the invading forces. They are too drunk and stoned to care, which was part of the plot and it should sicken everyone to the conditions of their countrymen. This is the fight of the millennia and most are too illiterate to even see it. But that doesn’t take away the reality. Truth doesn’t change just because millions of losers believe something to the contrary. This invasion is happening, and the targets are not men, women, minorities or even sexual preferences, they are the protections provided by the American Constitution for the benefit not just of Americans, but to those in the world with no hope but our bright lights and sharp ideas for which they gaze and yearn for. The enemies of America want that light to go out, and its up to us to not let that happen.

Four Officers Shot in Houston: When the state abuses property rights and things go wrong–more consideration of Roger Stone’s case

There are a number of things that still bother me about the arrest of Roger Stone at his home before dawn a few days before this writing. When police officers where shot trying to enter the home of some bad guys the day that Stone was set to appear in court to make a plea, four were wounded by gunfire and even Laura Ingraham on Fox News contemplated how bad it was that often residents have more firepower in their homes than the police. The police officers after all were just doing their jobs and serving a narcotics warrant. For a while there was wall to wall coverage of the action but the key issue was not discussed. What right did the police have to enter the home of suspects? Who decides who bad guys are and how can the state impose itself on the individual rights of its citizens with the assumption that everything the state touches can be taken away in a moment’s notice if that state decides that the greater good is in jeopardy?

I am of the thinking that Roger Stone should have held his ground and retaliated against the FBI agents who assaulted him in the early morning hours. After all, we know the FBI is corrupt so what good is any warrant that they issue. The Bob Mueller investigation is an attempted insurrection of an American President. They are bending the law to use as a weapon against political enemies, so why should Roger Stone go quietly upon being assaulted. He had no record of firearm ownership and there was no reason to attack him the way the FBI did in a predawn raid to show that the “state” had power over the individual which was the real message. It was a forceful exchange to show who was the boss, even over presidents of the United States.

In Houston, Texas neighbors had reported the sale from a home of black tar heroin so the police came to arrest the suspects. Now I’m not a guy who has any tolerance for drugs or their sale. I think drug dealers should be prosecuted for attempted murder, even for the sale of marijuana, so I am not lax in my judgement on drug use and sales. But our own CIA has been very actively involved in pushing drugs into cultures for control reasons, so what makes the two guys who opened fire on the invading police any different from world governments who also sell drugs? Not much in my book, they are all bad people. So with that off the table of consideration what gave the police the right to break down the front door and enter the home of these people in Houston? The shots weren’t fired until the police entered the home. Why would anybody expect any other result?

It was obvious to me that Laura Ingraham on Fox News was a mixed bag of emotions. I had just appeared on one of her shows just last week over the Covington Catholic case and I know she is a very hard-core conservative, but it was she who suggested that it was a shame that bad guys in homes often have better weapons than the police and that its sad that police are sometimes shot just for doing their jobs. Well, doing jobs doesn’t give a free pass to an abusive state government that has forgotten that the purpose of the Constitution is to protect individual rights and property is one of the centerpieces of that argument.

The same approach is used when getting pulled over by a police officer, they shine that bright light on you and approach the vehicle as if they owned it and you inside are required to be a compliant citizen. You are expected to recognize that your rights are subject to the judgment of law enforcement and their protection of the “greater good.” Well, none of that “greater good” talk is in the Constitution. I would argue that law enforcement officers are not capable of such judgments, they are not philosophically equipped and are illiterate in the matter. So what gives them the right to confiscate private property and to kick down doors to homes just because a neighbor called in a report?

I couldn’t help but think that the news coverage of the shooting was part of the problem, immediately the news was reported with a tinge of sadness at how dangerous police work was and how you never know what’s on the other side of a door to a house. That same assumption was made by the FBI in how they set up Roger Stone with an embarrassing CNN recording of the actual raid of his home. Of course, the FBI hoped to tap into people’s ingrained sense of yielding to authorities as they watched Stone be handcuffed and taken into custody. The message of course if it can happen to Stone it can happen to all of us, so you better answer the door and yield to authorities when they come for you. And when the Houston shootings occurred even Fox News jumped on the bandwagon of state rule and decided that the police were sad victims of violence without really knowing the details. Oddly enough, the news story was almost completely gone just 10 hours later.

The Bill of Rights in the American Constitution does not indicate that we must all yield to the authority of the state. The employees of the state make mistakes all the time and just because they issue a warrant against you that does not give them the right to enter your home and arrest you on your property. They do not have the right to take your car if they suspect you of some crime and they certainly don’t have the right to spy on you maliciously. The safety of the state does not supersede our rights as individuals. Only lawyers and judges over time have muddied the waters on Constitutional interpretation with loose case-law that has created a belief that the police have such rights of intrusion. But in reality, they don’t. The police who kick down doors to serve paperwork from the state are just as bad as the drug dealers who generate suspicion to generate such paperwork. Just because police officers have a warrant for an arrest it doesn’t give them the right to kick down doors and confiscate property and rights. Warrants can be served without violence, yet the state requires violence on occasion to build up the public perception of conformity, and that is not the spirit of the American Constitution.

As much as people don’t like President Trump, while I am a very loyal supporter, he certainly is a centrist especially in regard to police and military use. I disagree with him very much when it comes to police and elements of state control of law enforcement. As I’ve said many times, I am very much of an Anti-Federalist mindset when it comes to law and order. I don’t trust people to make the right decisions about their peers. If police kick down the door to your house or violate your independence within your car while traveling about in the realm of commerce, then you have a right to defend yourself, pure and simple. And when that doesn’t happen, arrogant bastards like Robert Mueller get cocky and think they can get away with arresting big names like Roger Stone to not only punish him, but to send a message to all of us—resistance is futile. Obey the state. And that is precisely where our modern times have gone wrong.

Talking Tough isn’t the Same as Being Tough: My appearence on Laura Ingrahm’s Podcast

It was very disappointing to see Sheriff Jones from Butler County put out his Tweet that ended up in the anti-Trump Washington Post calling for Obama and George W. Bush to come together to stop the party bickering that is currently going on. When I first saw it I thought about saying something to him about it, because what ended up happening was precisely what I knew would happen, the national media would key on it as a top Trump supporter who was reaching back to “traditional” politics for help in solving today’s problems in America between Republicans and Democrats. I’m sure Jones thought he was being cute and that he was trying to show leadership in solving the problem from a public relations standpoint, as his role in government as a sheriff and leader of the Republican party in Butler County, Ohio. But it ended up looking like just another two-faced Trump supporter getting cold feet when the President needed him most, and it was embarrassing. Ironically around the same time that Sheriff Jones was conducting his political insurgency Laura Ingraham’s producer was asking me to be on her podcast to talk about the Covington Catholic issue that involved Nick Sandman and the Indian activist Nathan Phillips. You can hear my comments at the 24-minute mark at the following link.

https://www.podcastone.com/episode/Covington-Catholic-Students-Respond-to-the-Social-Media-Mob-Radical-Pro-Abortion-Legislation-in-New-York-and-the-Truth-About-The-Dangers-of-Marijuana-

Essentially the contents of that Laura Ingraham broadcast was to display why the two political sides cannot work together, it was the opposite of what Sheriff Jones was asking for which ended up in The Washington Post. My comments were to state simply, the kids of Covington Catholic went to Washington D.C. to go on a field trip. They bought their MAGA hats and shirts at street venders who frequent the area they were visiting, and the point of the trip was to have fun. It was a free and open market and if other political parties had a message the young people were interested in they might have bought hats and shirts from those as well, but Trump represents something in American politics that is above the line in its thinking and the Democrats want desperately to avoid it, they want to keep the nation in a below the line condition, meaning they want victimization and turmoil for which they can apply government resources to in an indirect way to maintain their power. Trumps’ message of “Make America Great Again” is a powerful message of optimism and leads to above the line thought. Democrats needing to keep the political discussion below the line need to make everything about fairness and racism, not opportunity and growth. That is where the political divide exists and there is no way to negotiate with it.

By listening to Laura’s broadcast, you can hear clearly, she understands the situation. The political left wants to go to war and if they have to ruin the lives of kids like Nick Sandman to do so, they will gladly. That is what we are dealing with. There is no way to make peace with that. The political left had all the dominos set up to topple at any little thing and all it took was the professional activist Nathan Phillips to step up to a group of under aged kids and challenge them with all the plotlines the left had created to engage the targets and start a political dialogue of below the line thinking. When Phillips said in an interview that “these were indigenous lands” he was simply supporting years of progressive statements to apply to the here and now for tactical implementation. The Democrats in this case had set the table and all it took was one of their activists to strike a hit on some unsuspecting Catholic kids from Northern Kentucky. The kids weren’t the target, it was Trump’s border wall, but the political left had no problem exploiting them, or even destroying them to enact their cause.

Sheriff Jones should know better, and I really think he has good intentions. But he doesn’t know the game really. Neither does his WLW buddy Bill Cunningham. Jones has a good relationship with the media. When he says something, they usually run with it. He plays his game safe by making suggestions that look bipartisan and logical. Sure it gets him on WLW. I used to be on WLW all the time too, but the media in Cincinnati decided I was too radical for them. Its been a while for me to appear on a national show like Laura’s. But the truth is that I stayed the course, I am saying the same things now in the same way I said them many years ago when Cunningham and Jones were painting me as a local radical who was instigating trouble instead of building bridges with the other side. So I’ll say it again for them and everyone else, you can’t build a bridge to Hell and expect not to get burned on the other side. Only good-natured Republicans are even willing to do such a thing, liberals are actively looking to take over the world with their ideas. Barack Obama isn’t going to help make peace in the world, especially in America. This is the America he helped create. It is Trump who has the best chance at bringing peace, by cutting all the bridges to Hell.

I like Sheriff Jones, quite a lot actually. And I have listened to Bill Cunningham on and off for years. Not much since 2012, I’ll never get over the way he sided with the Lakota teachers on that issue that cause a tax increase indirectly in West Chester and Liberty Township. But those guys are old and out of touch. Sheriff Jones has great cowboy pictures in his office and his morality ultimately comes from those movies from his youth which I think is great. But these times are not those times. The enemy doesn’t want to make peace or avoid the gunfight in the street to establish moral order. They want to kill conservatives completely and ultimately. They want to destroy talk radio. They want to destroy law and order and they want to eradicate the American family, the Constitution, and all semblance of American lifestyle. They don’t care if they destroy children, adults, men or women, and they don’t care what color someone is. If the conservative who is challenging them is black, or is a woman, they would just as soon destroy that person as anybody. They have no interest in peace, they want to destroy conservativism and those are the facts.

Laura has always been good at what she does but lately she has taken a turn toward the kind of moral stand that I’m talking about. Sheriff Jones might think its cute to be an advocate for peace and bridge building, but that is exactly how Republicans have constantly ended up on the short end of these tactical engagements over all these years. You have to understand the nature of the people you are fighting. In this case Laura gets it, but Sheriff Jones doesn’t. What the media and Democrats in general were willing to do to Nick Sandman show to what extent they are willing to destroy others to win their game. And if that effort isn’t matched with equal force, then one side will continue to win everything while the other continues to lose moral ground inch by inch. Those cowboy pictures on Sheriff Jones wall used to define America. Not any more, that is because the image was stronger than the action. The fight we are in now requires our action to be stronger than our image, and when pressed, we must be willing to do what needs to be done. And that is the moral of this story, which will only have a happy ending if conservatives get with the program and come to terms with the condition of the battle field. Both sides can’t live together, as much as people would like to believe. This is a war and it requires both sides to fight it out for a defined victory. There is no other way at this point.
