The Tree of Global Warming: California’s schizophrenic relationship with exsistance

I have to give President Trump credit for doing the unpopular thing and that is criticizing forest management in California while the wild fires were still blazing and destroying massive amounts of property and killing people in live time. Many thought it was insensitive to the firefighters who were still battling the blazes and sentiments quickly retreated back into the patriotism and sacrifice of those fighting the fire, but to Trump’s point, there shouldn’t have been wildfires to begin with. Like most things that he is dealing with in his presidency, everything from empowering North Korea and Iran to be boogeymen in the world to be feared to insurmountable debt attached to socialist legacy costs, Trump with his business background looked at the wildfires and determined the cause, which most people aren’t used to hearing from the political arena.

The cause of the multiple wildfires in California isn’t just the dry conditions due to extended droughts toward the end of each calendar year, its in the regulations that California has put on itself to preserve the habitats of plants and animals but allowing way too much underbrush to exist in forest regions which then become kindling for any fire that might arise. The environments for the species the laws were meant to protect end up killed anyway, but with it millions of dollars of property and lives who have built homes in those tree hugging regions only to be removed from the connection to begin with. We live in the modern world, wildlife management, especially near populated areas should be removing all the underbrush under a forest canopy to remove the fuel for any potential wildfires. That they didn’t is the cause of these massive fires ultimately. And regarding the dryness of the plant life, there are underground aquifers that could be tapped in to in order to act as a natural sprinkler system should the need arise in population centers. Not taking those proactive measurements is precisely what President Trump was talking about.

Even though part of me felt sorry for them it was almost comical to listen to the governor of California insist that the cause of the problem was global warming as celebrities stood among the ruins of their homes in Malibu. I mean they are the ones who built their homes in an area known for wild fires, and they are the ones who have taken positions favoring the preservation of nature against the efforts of mankind. You can’t have it both ways. If you build homes in the paths of hurricanes, earth quakes and forest fires, eventually you are going to get bitten. Especially if no measures are taken to prevent the tragedies in the first place. It’s insane to have regulations against preventative action because California is trying to preserve wildlife when by the lack of prevention causes more death and destruction not just for the humans involved, but the wildlife they were trying to save. The situation is an insane approach built by a schizophrenic society.

Like most backward thinking people who ironically in this case call themselves “progressives” they have regulated logic back to the actions of mystics, the blame they contend is the mythic realm of the gods, in this case “global warming.” That is the only way that California can get away with trying to have their cake and eat it too, by building their homes and businesses in areas where they are always in danger of natural disasters. And I say natural even though accidents often start these fires because they do exist in nature. If it isn’t a careless campfire or power company that starts the fires its often lightning. In their most primal function, forest fires exist to destroy competing undergrowth in a forest. It’s an act of nature and sometimes nature can be cruel and lots of innocent plant life and animals get caught in god’s often tragic stage play. But to build in an area and put mankind’s stamp on the effort but refuse to manage the volatile elements is a recipe for disaster.

This whole issue is nearly as stupid as when the media tried to make an issue of the poor people in Hawaii who had their homes destroyed by lava flows when a volcano erupted on the big island and destroyed so much property. Hey, they built their homes on a volcano. What did they think was going to happen? This is what progressives do all the time, they test the temper of nature then when they feel the sting of the mistake blame it on a lack of appeasement to the gods. Mother nature in the world of liberal politics is just another god coming from mankind’s mystical past. Rather than accept that mankind was put on earth to tame nature, we are told that we are to live in harmony with the rules of nature. But those rules are brutal and unsentimental. Nature doesn’t care if Lady Gaga’s home burns to the ground in a forest fire, especially if the wildlife growth is allowed to grow out of control.

Trump gave credit to the firefighters and other supporter services that were fighting the fires, but to Trump’s point, the fires should have never started to begin with. They should have been managed so that if a fire started, it would never have spread so quickly and out of control. Part of what makes those fires so deadly is that they simply have too much fuel to drive them, and if forest management had done their jobs, that undergrowth would have been removed well before a danger ever occurred. As forest management employed by the government, they aren’t used to hearing criticism which is quite common in private industry, but they need to get used to it. What Trump is saying is that they didn’t do their jobs and that caused the loss of life and the destruction of a lot of property, not some god of global warming. Its one thing to believe in supernatural entities because humans want to neglect their responsibilities to existence, but it’s quite another to let those beliefs actually kill people, and that is what has been happening in California, not just this year, but every year over many decades now.

If humans are going to build a house in a region known for wild fires, then preventative action is part of the process. You can’t impose yourself on the land then back off and call yourself a preservationist. If you make the decision to do something, do it. Do it all the way, not half in and half out. A large part of the problem with everything in California is that they want to be everything, they want to be the occupants of one of the world’s largest economies, but they also want to be a leftist utopia, a literal Garden of Eden. But if you remember that story, Eve listened to the snake and that was what got her, and Adam cast from the garden. And in politics there are a lot of snakes always trying to get people to eat from the fruit of their trees. The Tree of Global Warming is one of them and California has eaten from it and thus have lost their ability to live in paradise because they refuse the responsibility of managing it. So thus, they have the problems that they do, and it certainly wasn’t President Trump’s fault for pointing it out.

Finally, Ohio can Pass Stand Your Ground Legilstation: Guns and GDP have a direct relationship

As we are getting the details on yet another mass shooting, this time in a California bar we need to talk about the importance of George Lang being elected to the 52nd House District in Ohio and Mike DeWine winning as Governor. DeWine winning that governor seat I thought was one of the biggest election surprises of 2018, yet the media didn’t really see the magic. Being a resident of Ohio its quite clear to me. I am very encouraged that we can finally get a Stand Your Ground law passed with someone who will finally sign the legislation. If there was anything great that came out of the 2018 election it was that pro Second Amendment representatives are fully in power and can act with authority. Stand Your Ground is a very high priority for George Lang and as I’ve written in great detail on several occasions personal ownership of firearms is directly connected to economic expansion and the positive mechanisms of capitalism. Like Florida which has good Stand Your Ground legislation economic development has come directly from it, Ohio has a wonderful opportunity to advance itself from a state being tempted to turn purple to a solid red state for the foreseeable future. And the time to act is quickly before Democrats can reset their footing and start posturing for 2020 elections.

Issue 2 failing in Butler County where George Lang’s district has the most residents was a tremendous opportunity also to deal with the root of school violence in our society, and the expansion of the Second Amendment to solve those problems. To avoid more school shootings in the future teachers must be armed, it’s that simple. There is no gray area on the matter, if we want to protect children from the criminally insane and the destitute, we must use guns for what they were invented for, personal protection at the point of a threat. There is no way to uninvent guns unless society decides to go the way of Ayn Rand’s great novel, Anthem and essentially go back to hunters and gathers living around a campfire, forgetting about the microwaves, the cars and planes, as well as the televisions of our modern society. To take guns out of society is to take away the tool that was invented by necessity by human minds to defend themselves from tyranny. That is precisely why an anti-gun stance in gun free zones is so ridiculous.

There have been times in Florida where Stand Your Ground laws were abused, and trigger-happy maniacs overstepped their rights with guns, but generally the legislation there has kept crime down and allowed for business owners to invest in the state knowing that a criminal element has a minimal influence over the population centers. Guns make people behave correctly, when people know there is a potential for gun carrying people roaming about and death is a possibility they often seek to take their temptations of crimes into other endeavors that are not so deadly. Guns and businesses are directly connected, the more guns in a society, the better their GDP. So the benefits far outweigh the losses.

Public schools are going to have to arm teachers, it’s the only way to promise parents that their kids will come home each day, is when competent teachers are carrying guns in the classroom. And competent parents as well, the more people carrying firearms, the safer a society is. And the reason that Stand Your Ground laws are so necessary is because it keeps gun users safe from unnecessary prosecution if they must use a firearm to defend situational problems. For instance, if a vile maniac stepped into a school right now and tried to shoot up a bunch of students, even if a teacher who was a gun owner confronted that assailant, the teacher under Ohio law has an obligation to retreat. That is the same situation on the street of any Ohio city, all gun owners have an obligation to avoid a confrontation. If police had the same restriction, they’d be toothless in a society to deal with people intent to commit harm.

I’ve been to Paris fairly recently and they have a very anti-gun policy even among their own police and the effects are obvious. The city is dirty, and the people are eccentrically committed to left of center criminal conduct. The major tourist areas do have a heavily armed presence to keep the criminal element away from those attractions, to keep visitors coming to the historic city, but that heavy-handed approach has the opposite effect, it is too much and can be intimidating. Paris is the perfect example of how to lose control of a population center toward the criminal element. As a result, industry has pulled away leaving only tourism to sustain their reputation, and that isn’t infinite under the current policies. Criminals can’t be allowed to rule as they do in Paris, any city, state or country that wants to prosper must empower its individual citizens to enforce the rule of law at the individual level of personal interaction. Law and order must happen everywhere, not just where the police are. That is the only way to have a prosperous society. Guns are directly related to morality and justice.

Stand Your Ground laws are needed to protect teachers from lawsuits and prosecution if they defend students from a potential terrorist. They should not hesitate and act with worry when trouble starts, they need to be free to engage a problem without fear of prosecution which could financially ruin them for the rest of their lives. That is not the way of a civilized country or state. And the answer is not in more government employees to be everywhere all the time as Issue 2 was trying to establish. People, every day people, need to be empowered to protect justice from hostilities born of insanity, greed, and malice. In doing that all public places become that much safer and businesses can invest without worrying about criminal conduct functioning beyond the reach of the police which are often overstretched by resource management.

There have been attempts to advance Stand Your Ground laws in Ohio and John Kasich, the newly born-again Democrat refused to sign anything close. Kasich in his final years as governor simply lost his mind and turned away from conservative ideas of self-reliance among people. Guns are obviously one of the biggest symbols of self-reliance in a culture and Kasich in the end was against gun rights as well. When people start legislating that they can expand Medicaid because God told them to, then all rationality was thrown out of the window and Stand Your Ground laws were off the table. We had to wait for a real Republican governor—so DeWine winning was a really big deal in Ohio. There were a lot of important races that were won on election day 2018 but DeWine winning in Ohio was one of the biggest because there has been a lot of positive legislation that has been held up due to Kasich’s sudden liberalism from 2014 on.

To make Ohio safe and prosperous not only from potential terrorists attacking our schools to protecting that manufacturing plant out in the middle of Ohio farm country from thieves looking to stock a black market, Stand Your Ground laws are a first priority to making Ohio the most business friendly state in the nation. The lack of a clear Stand Your Ground law has actually held Ohio back, along with a lack of Right to Work legislation that Kasich also held up. But now it looks like Ohio can advance in a conservative way and that is the most positive aspect of Mike DeWine and Jon Husted being elected as governor of Ohio. And it opens the potential for Ohio to become very great and a firm state in the corner of President Trump. Part of making and keeping America great again is in making Ohio great again, and with Stand Your Ground laws, that journey can finally take place.

The Old Hippie Neil Young and his Pro Communist song “Ohio”: Liberals want to take away guns so they can finish what started in China

I didn’t appreciate it at all when Neil Young resurrected his old hippie song “Ohio” ahead of the November 6th election hoping to influence the Republican “red wave” that was obviously emerging. In an updated video of that old Vietnam protesting diatribe about the “Kent State Massacre” the implication is that the Nixon administration deserved to have college protestors speaking out against the American war effort in Vietnam, and that when the National Guard was called in the quell the protests, the four people who ended up dead and many others one of whom was permanently paralyzed should have never occurred and is part of a larger gun violence problem. Neil Young these days is a fat slob who in the video wondered about on stage in front of a large crowd of degenerates likely high on marijuana smoke and other intoxicants and celebrated that the old hippie managed to come up with a catchy guitar riff about that massacre. For many years the leftists, who are generally all communist sympathizers have used the entertainment industry to sell liberal ideas to the public and Neil Young is certainly one of them. But these days conservatives have someone in Donald Trump who can draw bigger crowds and he doesn’t even need a guitar. Sure, times are changing and the assumption that anybody cares what Neil Young does is negligible. Yet his message is disgusting and deserves to be ripped to shreds for his attempt at political discourse.

Colleges during the two decades leading up to the May, 1970 shooting on the Kent State campus in Northern Ohio had been leaning to the political left that entire time and it was becoming a real problem. American youth were being taught in those places to think like communists and many of them never got over it. They are now a big part of the progressive left and are now running large media companies which has allowed the MSM to wholly be considered leftists organizations and a big part of the anti-Trump movement. For them a lot of what they know started in liberal universities like Kent State. It is disgusting that as Americans we have spent so much money on all these liberal colleges thinking them to be good things for our young people, only to find that they had a number one goal of liberalizing America for the sentiments of globalism. Those intentions clashed on that day in 1970 that Neil Young was singing about in his hippie song.

Even worse, American academia took their influence from Europe, which they never should have done, and decided to sell to their students this utopian idea that guns were not part of any society, and that the use of them by the National Guard in the case of Kent State was part of an authoritarian government that took up arms against its own people. Yet the colleges themselves were stoking the fires of communism in support of the spread of it across the entire Vietnamese peninsula. One of the biggest mistakes the United States ever made in the history of our young country was not to listen to General Claire Chennault at the end of World War II when he warned that the communists moving into China were more of a threat than the Japanese ever were. But nobody listened and communism ended up taking over all of China, and Korea then Vietnam. If communism had been stopped in 1948 in China, many lives would have been saved, but the American left wanted the spread of communism, so it paralyzed the American political system and we ended up with at least two bloody wars over the issue which killed many more people than some protesters at Kent State.

You see, there is always cause and effect. The American universities were guilty of allowing the spread of communism in America by radicals and attempting to hide that activity behind free speech protected under the American Constitution. Liberals have always been acting as Trojan Horses against American capitalism and using the sentiments of rule of law to hide their aggressions. Entertainers working on behalf of the political left soft sold those aggressions with hippie songs like that disgusting “Ohio” that Neil Young put together. And they are still using those same methods this time trying to tap into the leftists love of communism, socialism in pursuit of an anti-gun utopia. Liberals hate guns because it is the gun that has perpetuated American capitalism. Take the gun out of the culture of any society then leftists can have an unimpeded access to the minds of that portion of civilization. Liberals have never been about love, peace and sentiments of passivity, they are about cramming their vision of the world down everyone’s throats and they need everyone defenseless while they did it.

The National Guard panicked on the day of the Kent State Massacre. They should have never fired shots into the crowd. These days the protestors at Kent State were mild compared to some of the losers like ANTIFA that we have now. But back then in 1970 nobody really knew what to do with insurgents functioning on American soil and using the Constitution as a way to undo life in the United States. People should never have to die in protests, but then again, the colleges shouldn’t have been using their student body as soldiers for the spread of communism either, because that’s what America was fighting in Cambodia and Vietnam at that time. That was after spending a very costly war effort against North Korea in the previous decade. The battle was between the different political philosophies, capitalism against communism, and that is essentially what the battle of today is in what many consider a split America. Democrats want communism, they have just changed the name to progressivism, and Republicans generally want capitalism, although until Donald Trump came along, many didn’t really understand capitalism. American universities have left most people lacking a proper understanding of the economic power of capitalism leaving many weak on the subject, and susceptible to catchy songs by liberal artists like Neil Young. We all have an obligation to protect the American Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic and from the point of view from the National Guardsman, that’s what they were doing. The American press, which leaned to the political left because they had been trained at those same liberal universities of course chose to blame the violence on the National Guard.

And that brings us to the point of Neil Young’s updated video to that old song, the implication is that gun violence is out of control, especially in our schools and that if people want to see an end to it, that they need to vote out Pro NRA candidates. And this theme comes from one of the most liberal senators presently functioning who happens to come from Ohio, Sherrod Brown. During the many debates with his challenger Jim Renacci during this campaign season Brown tried to paint Renacci as a pawn of the gun lobby. Well, I am the gun lobby, and so are you dear reader if you are a member of the NRA. Of course, I expect politicians to listen to me from the power position of the NRA. I am part of what makes up that gun lobby through my membership dues and other things that I buy from them to help them fight away the corrosive influence of liberal senators like Sherrod Brown. If Neil Young had his way all of America would be run by liberals like Sherrod Brown and not conservatives like Jim Renacci. And they are so audacious to suggest that they had a big crowd at a Neil Young concert full of old pot smokers and communist sympathizers and think they have a right and obligation to continue making schools gun free zones, when it is the exact opposite for which the solution resides. But Trump gets bigger crowds than Neil Young and that is a real game changer for Republicans. For the first time they have someone who can actually sell conservative ideas back to people who need to hear it leaving old, fat slobs like Neil Young with nothing to do but sit in the forest, in the last house on that street and look at all the animals and redwoods and contemplate that America didn’t listen to their bullshit hippie talk. They voted for a red wave anyway and turned finally away from the communism the liberals have always dreamed of.

The World of the Living, and the Dead: Understanding what makes success and failure

I don’t think about it too much because honestly, I just live my life and try to have as much fun with it along the way. But I am also a very talented person, and a smart person so naturally I associate by default with people at all levels of society, and I enjoy it. Yet my entire life, liberal society—the part of our culture that has a certain agenda wrapped in what they call, “progressivism” has attempted to herd me into some place for which they control and I obviously have never cooperated. And their illusions of power have given them the sanctimonious lust to believe that they could edit events in my life in some dominating way. Personally, I may be one of the sanest people alive, and one of the most giving, but to liberal society I am an extreme outlaw as defined by them and that conflict has gone on all of my life, from my years as a little kid to the present, 50 years later. But lately things have been different, even more panicked from that liberal side. Lately liberals have been harassing important people who I know in an attempt to cause them to distance themselves from me in shame, which actually is a direct frustration that they have regarding their lack of power in the upcoming midterms. I understand that and I see many of these antics as the last attempt of a dying party to stay in power so they attack what they believe is the power behind the conservative movement, and they start with people like me who obviously feed a great deal of information and charisma to the base of the philosophy of conservatism. Not everyone needs to have a Fox News television show or a radio show like Rush Limbaugh. Because of all my talents such venues would be too limiting for me, so I do what I do in my own unique way and that’s never going to change, and is part of Making America Great Again. But before they are crushed out of existence I feel it appropriate to explain to them a few errors in their judgment just out of compassion.

The biggest mistake that liberals have made in their entire philosophy is that they believe that all things spring forth by group assimilation. Such as, if the group doesn’t acknowledge that you exist, that you don’t. I’ve never personally cared whether I was acknowledged for something that I do. It’s nice of course and is a show of respect from the recipients, but I’d do the things I do whether 100,000 people witnessed it, or if nobody did. If I were on the face of the moon with nobody around, I would do all the things I do everyday regardless, and that drives liberals crazy. The way that they herd people into various groups for which liberalism desires to control is by this basic assumption that humans need acknowledgment from other humans in order to conduct any behavior. While most people have been taught to respond to these liberal aspects of behavior, instinctively, they desire freedom from such intellectual controls. That is why Donald Trump can go to Florida and pack a 20,000-person arena night after night while Bernie Sanders could barely get 200 in the same venue.

The second is that even among the smartest and achievement-based people we have in American culture liberals want to believe that those people would never be who they were if not for some help in getting there. This is where my name has been brought up quite a lot lately, as the midterms have become closer and people pretty high up in the food chain have actually been threatened to disassociate themselves away from me with the implied fear that their power will be taken away if they don’t comply. But here’s the thing, people don’t make people great. Associating with other people doesn’t make a person powerful. What does is in what people can do for each other. If you are a person who has a lot to offer, people will love you. It doesn’t matter how much Google tries to censor you, it doesn’t matter how many idiots try to protest against your name, it doesn’t matter if the entire press of the city or the nation turns against you and tries to make you sound like some crazy person—but what does matter is if you can do things that other people value. Liberal society does not make or break people as they believe. Success is truly in the eye of the beholder and is clearly in their power to control. Donald Trump certainly understands this notion and he has undercut the mysticism that liberal society has functioned from for many hundreds of years. Trump knows that no matter what people say about you, that if you have something that people desire, they will rush to you even under a barrage of bullets to get to it. So to be successful, liberal society has no control over that and it drives them insane with hate. I learned that trait very early in my life and I knew that it was always a matter of time before someone like a Donald Trump came along to expose that weakness in liberal logic, and much to my joy it is happening now. When we talk about making America great again this essential individual trait is what we are discussing.

A lot of people who knew me many years ago wonder why I’m not working in Hollywood. When I was younger it’s really the only thing I professionally wanted to do. And I did have my stints in that town both as a writer and as a stuntman. Once I learned that Hollywood was really like a giant high school with all the power playing among peer groups that I always hated, I distanced myself from them. They certainly wanted what I had to offer. But I didn’t want what they had. So I went and did my own thing and was successful at other things. People with real talent don’t have to play the games socially that liberals propose. If you are good at things people can’t take that away from you. They can make it more difficult to find an audience but they can’t stop talent.

Ironically this is why the Make America Great Again movement is happening now, in 2018 as opposed to 2008 or 1998 or the year of my birth, 1968. Liberal society made its move against traditional America and they infested Hollywood, the media, academia, just about everything as far back as 1948 to be precise as China was taken over by communism and other global collectivists thought their time to shine had arrived, so they made their moves to herd all members of society into groups of their political design, and Americans being kind people sort of let things go on out of politeness. But once they figured out what was happening they started to take action. Now with the internet and the ability to speak without the censor of an editor of a major magazine or newspaper, people’s true thoughts are coming forward and they have found a voice behind Donald Trump. It’s not that Donald Trump is the leader of this movement, he’s simply the product of it and that’s what liberals just don’t understand. With online chat rooms, Instagram, and Twitter people have a voice that can get out. Of course, those internet companies that host those platforms are regretting the empowerment that they gave to individual voices, this wasn’t how things were supposed to go, but honestly, if they didn’t do it someone else would have.

So back to the original premise, there isn’t any amount of isolation that can be applied to a person like me to stop this process from going forward. By forcing people to distance themselves from me who greatly benefit from my relationship it won’t make me go away. People develop relationships with other people not out of loyalty or even a favor, they do so because of what the other person can do for them, whether it be just friendship or intellectual enrichment. Relationships aren’t determined by liberal society, they are built on individual achievement. A low life slouch will not have a relationship with a productive, loving individual because those two types of people are not compatible. They can’t be brought together artificially through liberal categorization. And neither can a successful person be separated by people who help their success, because it isn’t the rules of liberalism that makes people successful, its individual merit.

A note to those who want to think of me as a “fringe” person, nothing could be further from the truth. The definition of “fringe” again has been attempted to be defined by liberalism in the modern sense and it has failed miserably. Most people think the way I do about most things, which makes me very much the mainstream. What I say and do ultimately are the kinds of things most people find appealing and that is why no matter how much attempt is tossed in the direction to separate me from other people, they will never work because the mainstream sentiment exists between me and them, not liberalism and them. What liberalism is finally learning is much what the character Bruce Willis played in the Sixth Sense learned at the end of that movie, that all along he was dead. The movie wasn’t about him getting back to his loved ones, it was in the little boy helping him realize that he had died. And for liberals, their big moment is coming with the midterms. That is their sixth sense. Separating me from other people won’t change that reality because we are all in the world of the living. Liberalism however is already in the world of the dead. They just don’t know it yet.

Why Health Care Costs So Much: Most of the medical industry is a money making scam–but times are changing with technological improvements

It was good to hear that Jim Renacci who is running for U.S. Senate in Ohio said during a debate that he understood the health care problem in America. He provided an example of how the costs of eye surgery have come down in price over the years from many thousands of dollars to just a few hundred in a very short time, and honestly the same kind of cost reductions could be applied to all aspects of health maintenance in human beings. Young people are generally healthy and produce a lot of regenerative growth in their bodies while older people do not. The causes of this dilemma are of course levels of testosterone and estrogen in the bodies of people as they age, among other factors that inspire bone stability and cell replication. The future of medicine is in controlling those factors in people. But health care in general is an industry that is built on the misery of people, and a lot of the costs associations are not there to prevent people from getting sick, it is to keep them sick and to keep medical personnel employed. If you really strip away the cost of health care the Democrat approach is to give up long-term life for short-term employment. And we can never have a serious discussion about health care until we deal with this cost problem.

Like most things I have a very unusual approach to health care. I’ve always been a naturally healthy person, so I have been able to afford some scrutiny on the subject as a baseline of observation. To my experience doctors are drug dealers who want to put people on medication, and if given the opportunity, they will find something wrong with you so that they can write a prescription. That of course leads to the opioid crises, so there are further costs to this system of medical care that are terrible. To provide an example most people can relate to I’ll point you to your friendly neighborhood dentist, which Jim Renacci also used as an example during that same debate in Ohio. If you go to one dentist, they are likely to find 5 to 10 cavities in your teeth. If you go to another they may find none. So which is it? Generally, the dentist is financially incentivized to find something wrong with you because that’s how they make their money. And they want to keep you coming back every 6 months, so they can have a chance to continue finding things wrong with you. You seldom ever get the same opinion from two different members of the medical community, that is because there is a lot of scam built into the process meant to extract money from you. And like anything that involves budgets you cannot have a discussion of cost and how to pay for health care for people until we have an intelligent discussion about costs. And much of the cost of the medical industry is in useless treatment and overprescribing medication to people who really don’t need it, not to get better but to extend the catastrophic effects of the ailment. For instance, instead of dying from a disease in a few months the drugs extend that time to a decade or two. But the real focus should be in treating the disease and eliminating it, and that is not the case most of the time. That is why insurance costs are so high, because as people age insurance companies are guaranteed that a catastrophic cost to them will occur, so they have to leverage against that eventuality. But what if they didn’t have to worry about that eventuality?

Part of the way that the scam of medical treatment is sold to us is that doctors and their relationship to government have made themselves all-powerful in the realm of rules and regulations. I am an employer, and nothing makes me angrier than someone bringing me a doctor’s note telling me that they are on light duty or are going to be off work for some infinite amount of time because the doctor has taken over the management of my employee’s life. By doing that the doctor has taken over my operation and that isn’t permissible to me. The doctor doesn’t know what I need to accomplish with that employee so what right do they have to manage that person away from my influence? Of course the government backed by the Department of Labor feels entitled to tell employers that they will like being told what to do by doctors and the government in general or they can be run out of business and sued in court of all their assets. And in so many ways that is why the medical industry is so expensive, because they have no competition, they have the might of the federal government protecting their extortion racket and the cost of the loss of productivity from the workforce is forced on the business owner which then has to increase processes in other ways to cover their margins. But by the time that happens, the doctors and their staffs get paid, the government gets its cut through its various medical shakedowns such as Medicaid—which isn’t there to help people, it’s there to make sure their government employees get paid, and that much misery has been stretched out long enough to enrich the medical industry while the individual lives of the sick are ruined and their loved ones eventually have to grieve by their graves needlessly.

I have learned not to trust doctors, I have caught them in flat-out lies way too many times and needless surgeries. I’d rather take my chances on my own than turn over my health to people who just want to make money off a sickness they in most cases cause. The way to bring health care costs down is to eliminate the racket of the industry and the overpriced drugs that pharmaceutical companies want to sell you, and to get into the business of regenerative health. There isn’t a cell in our bodies that can’t be fixed and duplicated. There is no reason to degenerate as aging occurs. It is a process that real medicine can treat, while the fake medicine of the money-making charlatan and liberal politician wants to capitalize off of. I would say that 80% of the current medical industry is fake medicine designed to keep people sick and addicted while they use government power to back them into managing the lives of their patients in every way, even in the way they make money. As an employer the danger is that if you have a percentage of your workforce managed by doctors making them much less productive than your forecasts can absorb, you may go out of business, and some companies do because they can’t recover those costs.

Liberals have a very Soylent Green approach to health care, their idea which is wrapped up in the cost of the medical industry itself is to live well when you are young then when you get old, to offer yourself up to the system to mooch off of. Republicans are afraid to upset that apple cart because in a lot of cases they take money from the pharmaceutical industry also and don’t really understand the options available to patients and their treatments. Religion comes into play as well, we are born into a world that focuses on our eventual deaths, so nobody really considers a world where treatment of disease would be as common as eating at a fast food restaurant for pennies on the dollar instead of a lifelong fortune tossed away into the abyss of the medical industry. Additionally, especially liberals, they have turned earth worship into a cult in itself and as a collective entity, they don’t want to see humans living too long and not dying off overpopulating the planet. So those are the reasons that health care costs so much. But believe me, it’s very unnecessary. We could change it tomorrow, and I think the Trump administration is on the right path. So if you really care about the cost of health care, then give President Trump the tools he needs to reform it. There really isn’t anything to fear but the changes that are bound to come anyway.

It Was a Radical Democrat Who Mailed Those Bombs: How Kathy Wayenandt’s campaign in Ohio is tied to liberal terrorism nationwide

I’m going to go out on a limb here since it’s still early in the discovery process and proclaim that no Republican would have sent any “suspicious” packages to George Soros, Maxine Waters, the Clintons, or any of the other top Democrats that reported being the recipient of terrorist intentions. How do I know, because conservatives have no need. Conservatives are winning, so why would anybody even think of doing such a thing? The violence was instigated by a liberal, I am 100% sure. They are desperate for a way to rally their base because they are seeing the early voting numbers and energy ahead of the midterm election which I explained on Twitter.

Democrats are the kings and queens of dirty tricks and they will try anything and do anything to achieve their objectives. We are not in conspiracy theory territory here because their behavior is well recorded now, and we know that they have deep roots into the “Deep State.” The F.B.I. after all did try to conspire with Democrats to win the 2016 election so everything in the realm of dirty tricks is on the table. As I have said, I expect massive voter fraud in this midterm election, I expect attempts at violence from radical leftists’ groups. We can expect them to throw everything and the kitchen sink at trying to suppress Republican turnout which is also why I have been saying that conservative voters must show up with such force that no amount of dirty tricks will work, kind of like what happened in 2016.

This Democrat playbook is well-known now, there are no surprises from them. We knew the Kavanaugh events play by play, and they ended up fueling Republicans to the polls. In my home town of Butler County my kids went to vote early, and they were told that 500 to 1000 people every day were showing up at the early voting center to vote since it opened. In Butler County, those people aren’t voting for liberals. Republicans are energized in that same way all across the country and Democrats can see the writing on the wall. At the election center there were a lot of signs for the liberal Kathy Wayenandt that were put out by a few unionized labor volunteers to make it look like she has a campaign, but in reality, she is a good example of what is going on across the country.

I remember when Kathy Wayenandt was running the pro tax levy campaign for the local school district of Lakota. I was on the No Lakota Levy side and just a few days out from the election things were tight. It looked like the tax increase was going to go down for a fourth straight time. Now I don’t think Kathy had anything to do with it, but a note was found in the bathroom just a few days ahead of the election warning of a school shooting. Of course, when this levy was going on just as it is today, school shootings were on everyone’s mind and one of the themes of the levy was that the tax increase would be used for school security to hide the fact that it was only a money grab for teachers to get extraordinary raises—to pump money into the labor union. Well, Kathy and her radicals, the same people putting up signs everywhere recently for her run for the 52nd District against the great Republican George Lang won the election by just 1% out of thousands of voters, and the big push came from the media coverage of terrified parents worried about a school shooting. Of course, nothing ever came of the investigation because it was actually someone from the pro levy side that planted the note. That is what desperate people do when they see that things are going against them. They cheat, they lie, and they try to invoke fear.

That was just a local issue but on the grand scale of national politics the same thing is going on and some radical Democrat from their side decided to try to put Republicans on the defensive in the closing days of the election season. They hope to make sympathetic characters out of Holder, Waters, Clinton and Soros because they have been caught openly instigating violence against Republicans and Democrats have to change the narrative before they lose even more seats in the House and Senate. It is the last shot from a desperate party and likely it is a lone loser like that assassin who tried to kill Republicans at the baseball game not long ago. Remember that guy? Republicans are winning, they have no desire to do anything like this because they have Trump, a proper representative for their disenchantment and is poised to hold power well into the future. Conservatives are willing to wait in line for 24 hours to see Trump speak at a rally because he is their outlet to solving the problem. They are not motivated to mail a bunch of bombs to a bunch of Democrats who are on their way out of power—because there is no need.

I spoke yesterday at some length about the natural insanity of a typical Democrat. I even went out of my way to personally speak to Kathy Wayenandt after a recent debate and she swore to me that she wasn’t a Democrat, that she was a conservative with liberal social leanings. Well, that sounds like a mess to me, but I’ll take her word for it. As I said, Democrats have problems and they are prone to doing these kinds of things even against themselves if it evokes sympathy for their cause. I know a lot of Republicans at all levels of society and not a single one of them would go out of their way to mail a bomb to someone they didn’t like. Even with all the problems of the Obama administration and the height of the Tea Party movement no conservative came close to committing an act of terrorism—because it just doesn’t match the philosophy of being a Republican.

We are meant to think that there is some crazed branch of conservatism out there capable of doing something “terrorist” in nature and I’m saying that those elements of conservative philosophy do not exist. That doesn’t mean that conservatives will just take being pushed around either, but they don’t mail pipe bombs or commit terrorist activities. Even the faction that liberals call the “alt right” are not conservatives, the neo Nazis and KKK racists are just variations of liberalism within the Democratic party. They aren’t Republicans. They may call themselves that for the cameras, just like whoever mailed these bombs tried to make it look bad for conservatives by targeting high-profile Democrats, but their ambitions are always on the political left. Nazis, fascists and anarchists are all elements of the political left. Even though Antifa claim they are “antifascists” they are on the same side as the neo Nazi and the typical racist. Republicans are not in those groups. Tea Party members all through the last ten years educated themselves and voted accordingly, they didn’t shut down highways, harass politicians in restaurants, and try to exert force—even if they may have been justified in doing so. They voted, and they are in power, and they aren’t giving it up. And they certainly didn’t all of a sudden become terrorists. Only the Democrats know those methods and they are guilty of this one as well.

Republicans Coming Together at George Lang’s Fundraiser: The war of the midterms is about to occur, then what?

You can’t be the rebel forever, at some point if you are smart and diligent the reigns of power are going to pass over to your direction and you’ll get a chance to show what you are made of. I’ve been a Republican all of my life without ever going through any kind of period where I thought of being affiliated with some other party. But I am also very happy to be a lone wolf who lives on the outskirts of society, so I’ve never been big on the more social side of politics, except when there is a war to be won or a battle that needs everyone to come together to achieve a very defined objective. And it is in that regard that I have an obsession with politics, I do love the smell of a battlefield in the modern context. Politics is very much about wars as different philosophies pound out ideas to shape the nature of society, and to me that is very, very exciting. On the surface, politics looks stuffy, and boring. But when you know what’s going on and who the players are, what might look like a stagnant chess board comes to life and suddenly there is a compelling drama, and that was kind of a central theme at a Republican fundraiser for George Lang that occurred in West Chester, Ohio on October 18, 2018.

I’ve stayed on the parameter for a long time because my brand of Republicanism was way too much John Wayne as opposed to Roy Rogers and before Trump became the flagship of the party I can honestly say that I didn’t think that there was much for a guy like me to get excited about. I don’t want to negotiate with Democrats and find ways to work with them, I want to wipe them off the map as insurgents against American ideas and that kind of attitude really isn’t conducive to “party building.” But something happened in October of 2016 within the Ohio Republican Party where the John Kasich supporters rebelled and ran away from the newly formed Trump Republicans and since then much of the G.O.P. has coalesced around the president in very positive ways, and one of those Republicans is George Lang. So attending his fundraiser for me was a seminal moment. The kind of Republican Party that I had always wanted to see was forming. Some of the players were the same as they had been, but the game of politics was shifting. Republicans weren’t just trying to hold their own against Democrats, they were trying to beat them and that was something I could get excited about. The smell of battle was in the air and I simply love that.

Talking about battles, Ohio Republicans have won a lot of them and sometimes in the spoils of war people have disagreements, and there were people at George’s fundraiser that I hadn’t spoken to in a few years because of some of those moments. But it did give me a great opportunity to get in touch with them again, and that was good. Ultimately the differences were that I was wanting to go in a Trump direction before there was a Trump, and conventional politics at the time said that was dangerous. Conventional wisdom said that the Republican Party was going to be shaped by John Kasich, so political alliances become very much like an episode of the Game of Thrones. But just as quick all those same people are looking at each other in the face and pulling together for the next great battle and there is something very pure in that type of relationship. People are brought together to vanquish a common enemy. We might disagree how to dispose of the battlefield waste, but we do agree on our desire to win and that united people of all different affiliations at George Lang’s fundraiser in a very positive way.

Going into these midterms I have a very strong feeling for the end of a war that has long been coming, and I am happy to know many of the contributors. That doesn’t mean that we can take anything for granted at the polls, we need to show up and support our candidates on November 6th. But I have a very strong feeling that if we do that, we will pick up seats in the House and Senate and the Democrats will be headed for the fate I revealed on a radio show several years ago when I predicted their party would come to an official end. I don’t want to just beat Democrats in elections, I want to destroy them. The political spectrum is just too varied with their inclusion. If we are truly a center right country, which I think we are easily. Not to get too metaphorical but the new Halloween movie says a lot about what kind of country we are and it is making loads of money at the box office. 40 years after the original Halloween this new one has many conservative ideas in it and people are going to see the movie. To me the movie box office results say a lot about the kind of country we have, yet Hollywood producers refuse to acknowledge it to their own detriment. That is because much of the money that flows into Hollywood has radical left leaning intentions behind it, and that is why the Hollywood product these days is so wishy-washy. And understanding that, we at least in politics need a much more targeted representative basis to form our discussions on managing our country. For instance, we should all agree on the kind of education we want, we should all agree that its good to have a mom and a dad raising children. We should also all agree that economics is built by risk takers and investors looking for profit and that jobs are created in that exchange. We need to get the socialism crap out of our discussions in America before we can ever really be effective in communication with one another. So political victories, such as these upcoming midterms are very important, you have to win these wars so you can advance your ideas, which is why I love politics so much.

In America especially, these political exchanges have replaced armed battles on a field of contention. A lot of lives have been saved by creating the republic of America that uses elections to govern instead of armed insurrections and it’s a great system. Trump was a product of that system and these upcoming midterms are a battle to win a war that has been a long time in the making. George Lang is a part of winning that battle, and he can count himself among hundreds if not thousands just like him across the country contributing to the victory. But when the smoke clears that won’t be the end, but only the beginning. Once the Democrats are destroyed the hard work will just be starting, the responsibility of actually becoming one of the rulers instead of just a rebel scratching for a seat at the table. And when we get to the table, we all better know what to do when we get there. And based on what I saw at George’s fundraiser for the first time in over twenty years I think the future is very bright indeed.
