Yes, We are a Divided Country: If you vote for Joe Biden, you’re stupid

You must understand that when Democrats, like the Biden campaign is doing now, are stating that they want to unite a divided America, that they are essentially try to erase the fact that they are the ones who built the division.  I’ve always hated Democrats for this very reason, they are the bullies of our society who clearly have shown that they want to work in a regressive way against the tides of progress and thought to take all people of the world back to some sort of tribal council where force and fear keep a village united behind all the things they don’t know.  And I see their behavior as vastly evil.  The point was made quite clear for me this week as I went to every book store I know of in search of Candace Owen’s new book, for which all were sold out and they are on a 6 week backorder on Amazon.  The conservative black freedom advocate had hit the jackpot with her new book about how blacks are used to keep the plantations of old alive and well, and that she wanted to free people from their clutches.  I love Candace and have for a long time; she is the modern equivalent to a Frederick Douglass type of character and people are eager to hear what she has to say.  I was able to find the anti-Trump book by Bob Woodward but couldn’t get close to a copy of Candace’s book, which says a lot.

The same way that slave masters controlled their plantations with fear, force and severe punishments modern Democrats do the same with more subtle means, but with the same intentions.  Watching for instance the riot conditions of Louisville, Kentucky over the shooting of Breonna Taylor we were seeing the result of massive failures of public education and government policy in the inner cities where the inhabitants were literally kept in a state of stupidity, unable to think for themselves and acting just as they had been trained by the radical left to behave in a crises, just on cue.  You could hear it in Joe Biden himself, a man who had fermented relationships with KKK members from the Deep South when he told a black radio interviewer that if a black person didn’t vote for him, that they weren’t black, as if their skin color meant they had to vote for “master.”  I hear it in every school levy campaign where the radical left teacher unions tell us that we either give them more money from our property tax, or our kids won’t have classes, sports, or even a school to go to.  In the mobs that were in the Louisville streets threatening to kill police, and two officers actually being shot, I could hear the leaders of Democrat groups standing outside the homes of members of the senate to protest the vote of the next Supreme Court nominee, and restaurant participants in Florida who had members of Antifa crashing their meals and spitting on them for trying to enjoy a night out on the town and the issues become very clear quickly.

Nobody could find Candice’s book because she is preaching freedom and as a woman of color, that is something people want to see.  Nobody wants to be imprisoned to stupid people, and that is what Democrats literally demand.  They purposely intend to keep all of society stupid and in the dark just as the plantation owners of slaves did, so that they can keep people voting to keep them in power.  Instead of it being a whip or a gun that keeps their society in line, it is brute force of their many leftist groups who literally take to the streets by the sound of a whistle to beat people into compliance.  And people don’t want to live that way.  That is why there are divisions in America that are irreparable.  There is no way to make nice with people like that because the political left literally wants to destroy the American idea, which forces people who do support the idea of freedom and a civilization driven off ambition to survive.  There is no middle ground, there is no way to make peace with them.  Liberals must be destroyed, that is the only way to deal with the content of their characters.

I’ve told stories of my past so I won’t get into it much here, but I have always been a Republican because essentially it has been the party of freedom, and the one that fights bullies.  As a kid, Ronald Reagan was fighting communists, who were the open bullies of those times around the world.  Today, the communists are even in our government as Democrats and union leaders, but the position of the Republican Party is the same, they exist to fight bullies.  As a young man I did work for two organized crime elements, one for the Chicago Chinese mob, the other for a Cincinnati based money laundering group that used a car dealership as a front.  I’ve never been afraid of anything and I wanted to make a lot of money, so as a young person who had limited opportunity due to a lack of experience I found myself employed by those types of people and I could tell stories about those years from now until eternity.  But I know those types of people really well, I was never in a position where I was in a weak position with them. Quite the opposite, I was able to get involved in some of the heavy activities due to my natural lack of fear, of anything.  But let me just say, I learned what made those people tick, and they are no different than the Democrat Party.  When AOC said the other day that the Supreme Court nomination process should “radicalize” people to fight for the political left, well those are fighting words, and they demand action by conservatives to fight back.  Not to be compliant and to yield to that power.

Just as mobsters use the threat of future violence to drive current sentiment, when anybody presents a protest sign with a fist on it, such as most union propaganda, and the communications of Black Lives Matters, they are essentially proclaiming that violence is the result if people don’t join their cause.  Join us and we’ll let you live.  Move away from us and we’ll beat the shit out of you.  That is why there is division in America, the Democrats have caused it leaving it up to the rest of us to fight them.  We didn’t choose that path, they put it in our face so that is why there are divisions.  Now as I said, I had experience with the mob and organized crime.  I’ve never been a bad guy but power tends to attract power and when things got thick, I turned away from them the way any good person would and of course they tried to impose the penalty.  I won’t get into all that, but lets just say I don’t have to look over my shoulder in life.  And I would say to everyone that they must meet this current challenge in the same way.  I am attracted to politics as much as I am because I want to avoid bloodshed.  I don’t want to see a bunch of moms lose their grown children to a stupid political fight.  I’ve seen that kind of thing before and while it can be rewarding to stand up for yourself, it is sad to see the people connected to the vanquished who disappear from the earth.  Personally, I’d rather win at the ballot box, and that is my entire interest in politics, and in writing all these articles.  I’d like to save people rather than destroy them.  But yielding to a power, well, that’s just not in the cards.  We weren’t the ones insisting on fear to control our American population, and I personally have no tolerance for a bully.  Not only is it a position I have acquired in life, its always been my position and I’ve been tested with the worst temptations.  I’m not going backwards, and I fight in life to help others see things the same way.  But make no mistake, we didn’t divide America and we have no obligation to give up our values to accommodate the liberal insurgents who want to destroy us all.  The movement is their responsibility, they will either move toward freedom, or they will have to be eradicated.  There is no middle ground on this issue, its one way, or no way.

I did eventually find Candace’s book.  Wal-Mart in West Chester had it, so I bought it and read it.  I though it was great how she attributed so much of what has gone right in her life to her grandfather.  She’s only 31 years old, so the book wasn’t terribly long, about a 10 hour read for me, but it was good.  It reminded me of myself in a lot of ways and it made me think of some future biographer trying to pin me down in a similar way, as if one thing like a grandfather could define my approach to life.  Such a case would have 800 pages of my experience just up to age 25 and that would be leaving out a lot of things.  But that did put my thoughts on my experiences with the mob and other elements of organized crime that are all around a lot of people, but nobody pays any attention.  Then I compare that to snowflakes like Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney who thought Trump refusing the answer the question about a peaceful transfer of power was reprehensible.  Guys, in the mob they would take an answer like that as an invitation to assassinate you.  When one side plays by the rules and the other side doesn’t obviously the leverage of power goes to those willing to break the law to impose fear upon the innocent.  And the mob of the Democrat party thinks they can get away with a Color Revolution in America because of rule playing Republicans. Democrats think all Republicans will play by the rules so think if only they capture the means to make law that they will then acquire power.  Speaking for myself, no, that’s not how it works.  If peace doesn’t work, or Republican Party politics, that doesn’t mean that I’m going to submit to bullies all of a sudden.  I’ve never done that.  And it sure as hell isn’t going to start now.  Yielding to bullies gives them power and that is far more dangerous than what Trump said.

What Really Happened to Lakota’s Todd Parnell: School board activism adopts ‘Black Lives Matters’ values

The truth of the matter in regard to Todd Parnell, he was offered a new job opportunity out of the district of Lakota and was planning to leave his school board position at the end of the year anyway.  So it didn’t take much to set off his fuse when police came to Lakota West to obtain evidence on a cell phone from a burglary they were investigating when two students went Black Lives Matters on the police resisting their efforts and eventually destroyed the evidence in front of everyone.  Anybody watching the situation would take that as an admission of guilt.  But the students were empowered by the race riots on the national news and behaving badly, so Todd knowing he was planning to leave had a “f**k-it” moment and just said in an email to the Lakota West Principal, Ben Brown, that the police “should have shot them.”  (The students) Honestly, I heard little bits about the case over the last few weeks and I didn’t think it sounded inappropriate at all.  Other than the fact that the students were minors, they were obviously involved in criminal conduct and were behaving poorly toward the police, giving the police many excuses to shoot them, which they smartly showed restraint.  But to what cost?  Logical thinking people who see what’s going on do think that perhaps police should have just shot them and taken the phone and used the evidence to prosecute them, if they lived, and saved the tax payers a lot of money.  To that way of thinking, Todd on the school board represented the opinion of people like me.  If Todd wanted to leave the school board fine, but it would have been, and should have been up to him.

Yet here’s where things go wrong.  Activism on the school board, activism to remove conservative voices like Todd Parnell took over and rival school board members led by the Superintendent Matt Miller moved quickly to use the incident to purge the school board of an elected official, so that they could replace him with someone more friendly to their progressive positions, which is precisely what they have done.  They picked a replacement who may be the nicest guy in the world, but he is not an elected person that represents the community.  He is a pick by activism by the school board president Brad Lovell to stack the votes against conservative voices and it’s a pretty dirty trick that didn’t become clear until the smoke cleared from the Lakota West police incident.  Who does Matt Miller think he is, or Jenni Logan for that matter, the treasurer to push for a human resource move against Parnell?  They aren’t in charge; the school board is.  If voters want to get rid of Todd, they would and could have shown outrage and maybe he would have resigned on his own due to public pressure.  But the pressure was completely activism on behalf of the school board to take up the Black Lives Matters Marxist position and give criminals more due process than an honored member of the school board.  It was a case of wokeness at its most obvious and its disgusting.

My phone has lit up over the last week about this case and it did surprise me that Parnell resigned.  As I said, most everyone I know thought about the young criminals the way I did, that they should have been punished on the spot for their actions.  It was beyond logic that the school board would defend the criminals and adhere to the new definitions of Black Lives Matters more than the culture of Butler County understanding the politics of the area the way they should.  It was arrogant at best and I held my tongue until more of the facts came out because I personally know a lot of these people and I was having a hard time believing they would be that stupid.  But as it turns out, the Lakota School Board cares more about Black Lives Matters radicalism than they do the voters in the district and they took action on their own to remove an elected official and it was all initiated by the Superintendent and the Treasurer.

One thing I don’t do is kiss and tell, unless the lipstick has some truth that is needed for the case in hand.  At that point I will use it if justice is the outcome.  At the start of the Covid-19 lockdowns, one week before Ohio shut down restaurants, I was at P.F. Chang’s interviewing potential conservatives for the Lakota School Board’s upcoming elections.  In came Matt Miller, Jenni Logan and West Chester Administrator Larry Burks to have lunch there also, so we had a slightly uncomfortable exchange of hellos as they clearly were not comfortable that I was eating lunch where they were.  But I was fine with them, I personally like Jenni and I think Matt is pretty good as a superintendent so long as he isn’t asking for money, which I said to him.  I was happy they were there because I had seated in the booth next to them one of the number crunchers from the old No Lakota Levy campaign so I could get a report on the meeting, which was impromptu because my meeting prior to the school board candidates was with him to discuss strategy for the 2021 and 2022 school levy campaign that we knew was coming soon.  To me its all a chess game I’m happy to play with them, to them, they’d rather have complete social compliance at any cost.

As we broke our little talk and Matt went back to his table, I offered to shake his hand, as Covid-19 wasn’t yet a quarantine thing, hard as it is to believe.  My school board candidate while this was happening, he was commenting on the drop in stocks that were happening as we spoke and was alarmed, so all this was new to everyone.  But instead of the handshake Matt offered me an elbow bump, which was the first time I had ever seen that—which is now as common as the sun.  It bothered me that the guy was so into all this progressive sentiment that he’d know to do that so early in the process.  And it made it clear to me where his mind was.  He intends to be a “woke” trendsetter and that is the direction he intends to go as a school superintendent, and it was at that moment I realized Matt Miller was not someone who I could work with.  And that he is very much a progressive activist rather than a concerned community member who wants the best for Lakota.

No my thoughts on Lakota and the school board right now depend largely on the election.  Its not a secret, I tell everyone who asks me, my plan is to see Trump elected and to put Betsy DeVos into a position to defund any liberal activism in all public schools of federal dollars.  So this is a very top down issue and Lakota will certainly qualify with this kind of behavior of losing their federal dollars and I am ready to fight them on the ground when they try to cover the balance with property tax increases.  I like our chances to win at least 3 to 5 levy attempts with the ground numbers we have now, so that will force a lot of these liberals off the school board under great pressure and allow for activism going the other way.  So I don’t blame Todd for wanting to leave or for what he said.  Losing a conservative at this point doesn’t matter much until the federal funding cuts come next year.  But it is a shame to see such activism from Matt Miller and Brad Lovell who clearly has let the status of president go to his head.  Brad was always a little sideways anyway, but since they let him take the president seat, he has become what we all thought he always was, way too power hungry and much more manipulative.  They all have some big embarrassments coming.  And being “woke” won’t help them.  People vote for representation; they do not need the management structure at Lakota further undercut than it already is with radicalized labor forces.  It may be hip to know about the progressive “woke” trends, which Matt and Brad are clearly in line with, but we are supposed to be teaching kids at Lakota right and wrong—life skills, not teaching them to be woke, and to defend criminals from police, which is now an official position by the Lakota School Board.  They are more interested in defending criminals than protecting property owners of their hard-earned tax dollars.  But rather, they intend to use it to destroy our culture and everyone in it who resists the “woke” culture and their Marxist intentions.  That is the real story of the resignation of school board member Todd Parnell.  The school board did not come out in defense of their friend and colleague, they used racism and criminal conduct to drive him off the board so they could re-staff the position with someone they liked, and that is a real problem.

The Great Trump Rally in Ross, Ohio: George Lang’s “Power of One”

George Lang said it best during the Trump Rally in Ross, Ohio on September 13th, 2020, the power behind the Trump movement doesn’t come so much from the President himself, it comes from the Power of One.  The Power of One is a common theme in George Lang’s speeches, who is set to win the 4th Senate Seat in Ohio, he believes firmly in the power of individuals to shape the destiny of mankind and is a big supporter of the book ‘The 5000 Year Leap,’ which talks about how quickly advances in science and technology occurred once individual liberty was discovered in human civilization.  By the way, the author of that book is finally getting the respect he deserves for his book ‘The Naked Communist.’

I once did a radio series of broadcasts on that book with WAAM radio and people were confused by it, they couldn’t see the signs that were all around them.  That was about five or six years ago, but now its all hitting home for them.  One thing I did learn at the Trump Rally which I didn’t know, was that the Communist Party USA has endorsed Joe Biden for President, which says everything anybody needs to know.  And on a very pleasant pre-fall Republican Party sponsored event in Butler County, Ohio I found a much larger crowd than I expected at the Big Bul Roadhouse just west of the Great Miami River and several prominent area Republicans made the case for themselves and President Trump to be elected on November 3rd.

I am very proud of the Butler County Republicans, ever event I have gone too for the last 10 years has some very interesting characters who work at all stages of the social structure to keep liberty alive, and I know its quite unique, because I speak to people all over the country and everyone has their heroes, but Butler County has a lot more of them in one place who normally would smoke each other out.  Its no wonder Butler County is one of the best hotbeds of Republican Party support in the nation, from national celebrities like Sheriff Jones to George Lang, to Supreme Court Justice Sharron Kennedy, and Congressman Warren Davidson at the top of the ticket, there are a lot of people who work the cracks who really do make things work, and George Lang is always very appreciative of it.

He mentioned a few in his speech, but as I looked at that crowd at the Big Bul, it was very clear just to what extent the unsaid masses produced individuals who did what they did without anybody giving them credit, and it is in each one of them functioning from the Power of One who made those types of events so special.  The news media was there and gave some fair coverage, but nobody really put their finger on why that event was so special.  People had a sense of it, but they really couldn’t put it to words.

Now nobody will accuse me of being modest, I’m not that kind of person, and I do understand what is going on with the Trump movement this time around that is so uniquely special as opposed to the 2016 election.  The people at that rally were different than what I’m used to, but I have been talking about them a lot lately.  They are the kind of people who are not unlike the typical Sturgis Motorcycle Rally participants.

I wondered as I looked at the big hill filled with people behind the Big Bul sound stage they have for live concerts there how many of those people voted for the first time in 2016 for Trump, and how many more of them would fight to the death for him should all hell break loose and hit the fan.  I would say most of them, but as I walked through the crowd, I found they were the nicest people you could imagine.  Some of them showed up at 1 PM in the afternoon, for an event that didn’t really start until 4 PM to pay homage to President Trump who wasn’t even coming.  Only the Butler County Republican Party was supporting him, but the man himself wasn’t even showing up.  And the crowd was much larger than anything Joe Biden could produce on his own, as the headliner.

I’ve included some parts of the speeches and some photos, but honestly there is no way to capture something like this except for being in person.  We are on the eve of some major riots in the nation that are scary to people, especially toward the police and when Sheriff Jones showed up the crowd rumbled about as if it was Trump himself shaking hands and taking pictures.  The celebrity of Sheriff Jones in Butler County was appreciated, and the people loved seeing him, touching him, and listening to him speak.  That is the Power of One, a brand that Jones has created over decades that is really pulling people together in a tough time.

Trump Rally in Ross #trump2020 #trump #trump2020🇺🇸

A post shared by Rich Hoffman (@overmanwarrior) on

The real power of a republic like the United States comes from many people performing the Power of One without being told, or directed by some centralized figure.  Its amazing how well it works, and I am quite certain that Democrats couldn’t come close to doing anything for any candidate that I saw in Ross, Ohio on that day with really just local politicians who have used the Power of One to make celebrities out of themselves because they are so authentic, and people were willing to stand in the sun, and brave bathroom conditions that were more reminiscent to a rock concert than a political rally just to be near people fighting the good fight, and doing it honestly.

Even that little bit of extra love that went into the stage design, I know that guy now and have watched him and his team put on quite a show doing all the extra bits to make the event pop even more than it otherwise would.  I could name enough names to fill an article like this many times over if I named them all, but what makes them amazing, and how they support President Trump because they understand that the key to our nation and our future is in the Power of One, not in the mass produced power of all that Democrats believe in using the tenants of Marxism as their guide—that no individual is as great as the whole.

Rather, the whole is much better because of the Power of One who does what they do out of passion and a yearning to be free.  To the most sophisticated Supreme Court Judge in Kennedy to the roughest motorcycle riders who entered the event with Trump flags flying from the back of their bikes.  What made the event so great, and why Trump has such a huge chance to do even better this time than the last election is because so many Power of Ones were doing their thing independent of each other to culminate in such a spontaneous event of love and dedication.  No central planner could have produced those results, only people who understand that if they create the venue, the many Power of Ones who love and support President Trump will show up and make it spectacular.  And that is something that the political left doesn’t have.

As I said, I had it figured out before I arrived that day.  But even I was shocked by the crowd size.  I had been talking to John London from Channel 5 News two days before about the big convoy around I-275 on Saturday.  As we were talking I could tell he was wondering why as a member of the Trump Team in Ohio who is always in and around Trump events, that I didn’t know more about how and why the Trump convoy was happening.  I explained to him why, and he came away appreciating the answer.  I watched his television spot and its obvious that he took measure in it.  And the rest of the nation is just now getting a sense of it.  Its precisely why the political left is in such a panic right now because they don’t have what Trump has, and that is the support of the many millions of Power of One movers and shakers who work on his behalf without direction or leadership.  They do what they do for passion.

The Trump Parade was created out of passion.  The Ross Rally was done out of passion.  People find my blog out of passion because Google and Facebook cut off quickly any searches or link pastings shadow banning me viciously.  But people find the articles anyway and they share them in email postings and other means.  People rally without being told, they make their own Trump signs if they can’t find them, and they are out there spreading the word out of their own self-interest, because they love America and they want a fighter in office to protect it for their own affection for it.  And that is why the Power of One always wins, and why it will especially win this time—and quite spectacularly.  That doesn’t mean that the Power of One can go to sleep.  But it does mean that once activated, nothing can stop it.   George Lang understands that, so does Donald Trump.  And in Ross, Ohio on a day with autumn breathing in the background hundreds and hundreds of people understood it too, and it was a beautiful thing to witness.

Only the Re-election of President Trump can Stop the Violance: We have lots of guns and nobody wants us to use them, including us

How many times have I had to explain it, the need to punch back at our attackers and to not think of them as “equals” who have thoughts different than us, and should be heard as such? So many times people have told me that by engaging with the enemy and playing their dirty game, that we were lowering ourselves and that someone should be the bigger person. That in so doing we were undermining any validity our own arguments might have in the light of day, while the enemy produces a complete rejection under terms of violence our very existence. We are supposed to take it like nice Christian soldiers while the villains of life itself hang us on a cross and set it on fire metaphorically as they burn the American flag in front of our faces, tear down our historical monuments and make actual threats against anybody of the white race with death. I remember specifically not that long ago, 6 or 7 years or so, when I was in a Milwaukee hotel doing a radio show exposing the contents of ‘The Naked Communist,’ by Cleon Skousen. It was a 1958 book that illustrated the goal of taking over the American education system, the movie industry, the medical industry, all of the media, newspapers, boards of whatevers—not with swords and gunfire but by educated people taught in the ways of red communism to undermine everything from within, to destroy America and spread communism all over the world in the direction of a one world government once and for all.

Of course at the time of that Milwaukee radio show I did on Skousen and the many written articles that I have published since, the information was mixed with the fun aspects of our culture and people might have rubbed their chins and thought of agreement with me, but they were not provoked to act because they couldn’t see the threat in the light of day. So long as the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant was open, there was college football, and the mall was open, people didn’t care much that outright communism was taking over all American institutions and our media companies were already bowing to their new masters of the east in China, who was buying them up quietly with American debt and blind trust. My warnings were listened to but overlooked because they seemed remote and far-fetched relative to the ways of the world at that time. People heard the names of Bill Ayers, and George Soros and that the stories were interesting, but they didn’t understand how they might impact their lives until Black Lives Matter started taking over American cities and the media was trying to shove everyone into their homes by fear of coronavirus death to prepare Americans for subjugation to a new authority. And suddenly our governors weren’t protecting our society from the bad guys, they were doing their bidding, and they were telling us to bend the knee to Covid-19 by wearing a mask in public. A lot of people are pretty blown away now at the sheer terror of it all.

While I don’t want to minimize the need to fight these losers, everyone needs a quick reminder that if they already had power and influence, they wouldn’t have had to stay in hiding all this time pretending to be something else while they took over our society. And if they truly thought they were in the right, they wouldn’t have to threaten force and destruction to get their way. They are coming out now with all this aggression and manipulation because we elected Donald Trump in the last election and all else has failed, and they are literally throwing everything they have at destroying him, and any supporters he might have left by Election Day, 2020. They are willing to burn down everything in America, they don’t want Disney World to reopen, they don’t want an NFL season, they don’t want movies to play in movie theaters, they want a complete destruction of American life while we are forced to hide in our homes wearing masks terrified of a virus. They have gone all in, to use the poker term, and are willing to bet it all to end the Trump presidency and the hopes of the American people to stop the plan that Skousen revealed in 1958, which even back then was several decades in the making.

Now, I know how this all ends, I am a person who loves reading books and I’ve been through all this through books and history, so I already know the fate of this radical leftist enterprise. Ayn Rand, the great American writer has covered this takeover before. In her book ‘We the Living’ we’ve seen this act before, so step by step its happening now in America what has already happened in the Soviet Union, Germany, China, Iran most of Central America, Cuba, Venezuela, to a smaller degree in Europe, just about everywhere the incursion of socialism leading to harder communism all based on the failed philosophy of the German Karl Marx. They are doing it on live television in America and people are pretty worried about it now that they’ve seen the ugly intentions for themselves, but there is one thing different in America that none of those other places had, free people armed with 300-400 million guns. You can bet if not for the Second Amendment that these communist radicals led by old terrorists like Bill Ayers and foreign investors like George Soros and even the Koch Brothers would have taken over our society completely. But because of private gun ownership they have had to resort to their insurgents in the medical industry to try to smoke us out with coronavirus.

The increase in activity on the communist front is because they are afraid we are going to give President Trump another 4 years and that even with all the cheating they have in mind to do to turn the election in their favor, that they won’t be able to do it. Because most of America between the cities is very much a free place full of Trump supporters, and they are going to reject communism, especially now that they have seen that my warnings so long ago were quite valid. Instead of listening to talk radio in their garages for the sports scores of their local baseball team, they are hearing about more coronavirus lockdowns. Instead of going to the movies to see the latest blockbuster they are watching news reports of the most recent Black Lives Matter Marxist takeover of a city and the chants to defund the police so criminals will have nothing to worry about while destroying America. And now normal everyday Americans are ready to fight because there is nowhere in the world left to go to get away from these people. That has set up a clash that is very much a new war on American soil. One that most people didn’t want to have happen and hoped to avoid with the election process. But if that doesn’t work, there will be a massive fight that will have to happen, and people are ready if the election fails. But at this point, there is still hope that the election might prevent all that bloodshed. However, a communist takeover by Marxist radicals is not going to be permissible. The minute they might try to abandon our Constitution, is the day their insurrection ends not with votes, but with physical force.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Problem with Candice Keller: It takes more than throwing rocks to be a good senator

In a bizarre way, everything about Candice Keller comes across as presented by Ganga Tarot in the below video—victimized, always on the outside looking in, and that conspiracy is the only answer to the future. It’s not that what Keller says about things is the problem. Everyone understands how freedom of speech these days is used to control thought and belief, so I’d be the last to say she shouldn’t have said this, or she shouldn’t have said that, and perhaps about many things she is right. But there is a difference between being a one trick pony and someone like Trump who can say similar things and escape the scrutiny of judgment untouched by scandal, and that difference follows Candice around like a ball and chain. She hopes that in the end she can use her woman status to separate herself from her rivals for the Senate in Ohio’s 4th seat, but at a time just ahead of the primary vote in March, her party has rebuked her at every level. And her response has been to resort to something more akin to the #metoo movement where her only way forward is to present herself as an undercard with a victimized status of womanhood.

The Republican Party has gathered behind the trusted leadership of George Lang for that very important seat. Looking at the Trump election for reference, the fighting among the party was vicious right up to the convention so its not uncommon for people who should be working together within the party to still be fighting this close to an important election as this primary in March. But Candice should see how the stars are lining up and be thinking of the day after instead of just trying to get a few votes by appealing to voter’s own sense of victimization. There is nothing more pathetic than such a one trick pony throwing rocks with nothing else to contribute who fails to understand that the nature of the game is to get the Party behind you, not asking you to resign. Trump’s campaign which Candice is trying to appeal to, understood that he had to unite the party by the convention, and in relation to her campaign that deadline has already passed. As a senator Candice would be completely ineffective when all she’s known for is a rock thrower screaming victimization. That makes her good points in standing for Second Amendment rights, and on abortion worthless because she has shown that she has no other means to bring people behind her legislation than to retreat behind victimization status.

I’ll be the last to say that punching back and hitting hard is beneath the needs of Party politics. However, there need to be other weapons in the holster, such as charm, team building experience, and the ability to rally people behind your cause. You have to understand the name of the game, and in politics, the reason there is a two party system, like it or not, is to force representatives to work with people of many different beliefs and get them to back an idea you propose. It doesn’t mean you have to compromise on everything, but you do have to have the skill to bend people to your will through many other methods besides just insulting them. There is a time and a place for fighting, but you have to know better when and where those times are, and just a few weeks ahead of the primary with Republicans refusing to get behind her in an established way, she is doing more damage to herself and the future she could be a part of by digging a deeper hole. My friendly advice to her would be to not resign, but to step aside quietly in this senate race and get behind George. Then live to fight another day because I see a lot of use for her contributions. But not right now after some of the devastating public relations she has had. If she continues to attack the GOP as unfair, how can she ever rally them behind her in the future, or on some new bill she proposes in the House? She must think of the long game, not the immediate need she has to save some face amidst controversy.

I make no mistake about it, that I’m for George Lang, and I am for many, many reasons. Mostly that I know him very well and for a long time, and I know he has all the skills I just mentioned. He has the needed political range and he can do well in the world by keeping things mostly above the line, and positive, which is a key for the position of senate. But more than that, even under intense pressure he has never found himself in a situation that Candace has. He’s been a frontrunner for most of his political career so its not a matter of playing it safe and not saying the wrong things at the wrong times, its just political skill. You must be savvy enough to raise money, be true to your base, and find ways to get people to work with you and not lose your soul along the way. George has done all that and more and he has had Party support. My worry is that Candice has things to offer the Republican Party and I don’t want to see her ruined after this primary election. I’d like to see her live another day and to develop her abilities beyond the one trick pony status.

It’s not enough to be a Trump supporter in Ohio and to appeal to the base. There are few politicians in Ohio, especially someone like George Lang who is considered to be a mainstream politician who is more for Trump. I remember when the entire Republican Party was supporting John Kasich and thought of Trump as a joke. George was with Trump from the very early moments. When Trump came to the Savannah Center in West Chester in the spring of 2016, well ahead of the Republican Convention in Cleveland, it was not yet popular to support Trump but George Lang was sitting right next to me in the VIP section and next to him was Margaret Conditt of the then 52nd district House seat. Sheriff Jones was there too, but not many others. Many of the VIP seats were empty and we let some lucky people come up out of the line to get a prime seat in that tight venue. I didn’t see Candice there, maybe she was in line somewhere, but the point is George has been with Trump from the beginning, and to have such a supporter in the Senate would be a great thing for Trump in Ohio and his supporters which Lang is an unquestionable advocate of the White House’s policies.

Personally, I’d like to see Candice get back into the good graces of the Republican Party as a contributor that people aren’t running from. The party could use her help, and she could use some advice in developing more tricks than just attaching herself to the Trump agenda. She needs to do more than throw rocks. She needs to do all that and a whole lot more. She needs to build bridges and get endorsements because that is attached directly to fundraising, and nobody wants a senator in the Ohio statehouse that is just a radical nobody will line up to hear speak. We had an event in West Chester and people did line up to see George Lang, a lot of people, and again, Candice wasn’t there, and she should have been. Even the liberal Lee Wong was there, although I think he thought it was the back door to Sushi Monk and was hoping for a free meal. Candice can’t hope to win an important seat in Ohio without having the Party with her, especially this close to the election. It’s the day after the primary that I’m worried about for Candice. Her place in the Republican Party needs to be much healthier not just for the benefit of all Republicans in Ohio, but for the people who need her to make good votes, put forth good bills that the governor can sign because Party unity is behind the effort, and people are willing to donate to the expensive act of campaign management. I want a future for Candice Keller, not a bottomless pit. But ultimately, its up to her to listen.

Who Cares About Michael Bloomberg’s Billion Dollars: It won’t help him win 1 percentage point

There seems to be a lot of concern about Michael Bloomberg’s commitment to spending a billion dollars to defeat President Trump in the next election. Some of that money was constantly seen during the NFL playoffs trying to prop up the New York socialist with favorable light. Then the Sunday political shows were deeply concerned because as many of them said, it was Bloomberg money that converted the House from a Republican majority to a Democrat majority for which many current problems have spawned forward. So for clarity here, let’s put some sanity into the equation, no, Bloomberg did not cost Republicans the House, it was the Never Trumper Republicans who retired leaving Democrats to fill those voids since many in those districts were still moderates at the time. A few years later with such a great economy being what it is, those demographics have changed for the better. And considering Michael Bloomberg’s billion dollars, you can polish up a turd to look like some nice piece of gold, but its still crap. People see what’s going on. I would say that Bloomberg at this point could spend 2, or 3 billion dollars but he would be unable to move numbers against Trump one percentage point and for him and the rest of the Democrats, that has to be very frustrating and they are fixing to learn some very hard lessons in 2020.

Democrats still haven’t learned their lessons, and Bloomberg is the same guy who thought that big government had a right to regulate the size of a soft drink that we could all have. They just don’t understand what I have been saying about the great psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmiahalyi’s important work on “Flow” that came out of the University of Chicago. It really pains me to see the state of modern day academia allowing themselves to be a propaganda arm of socialist politics because I personally enjoy the great works of very profound thinkers from academia quite a lot, people such as Mihaly Csikszentmiahalyi who see emerging trends in human consciousness well before pop culture and politics recognize them. Trump isn’t just a person, but it’s a global trend. You can see it in Brexit, we can see it in Iran, Hong Kong, even in the Star Wars movies for which Disney’s pop culture is draped off of. When people roll their eyes when I’m talking about the new Rise of the Resistance ride at Disney World even that is built of the same stuff from Mihaly Csikszentmiahalyi’s concepts about psychological Flow. We live in a world where personal decisions crave to be freer not more restricted. People want less rules and much more creativity about their private lives, not more restriction.

Democrats and their commitment to socialism whether it is openly stated or just supported in policy by a different name is all about less options, not more. They are all about less creativity personally in all our lives, not more. Their definitions of freedom are constructed in old 60s communist propaganda uttered in Beatles songs, not in the realities of our day with the freedom that smart phones give us and the infinite shopping options of Amazon.com. We live in an age where commercial space travel is becoming a reality, and here is Michael Bloomberg suggesting that we need more rules on soft drinks, and the Democrats want to do for health care what they have done to public education, turn it into a dirty uncared for bathroom at a public park managed by government for the utilization of government, without private enterprise there to keep quality on the up and up. Even in the realm of health care we are looking at cures for cancer and the complete biological restructuring of a body in a few years to cure illnesses, where standard doctor’s visits won’t even be a thing, it will likely happen by computer and from the comfort of our homes.

That is the trend that President Trump represents in the world, freedom and personal choice. That is what the Republican Party as a whole now represents and there is nothing that the Democrats can do to repair that image. No amount of money can change that message now that Democrats are committed to that branding. And that will be the lesson of all the Bloomberg money he is spending and plans to. His message and the one in general for the Democrat Party is one that people are rejecting at every level of their lives. No matter how many times they hear from Bloomberg during the playoffs and world series, audiences will tune him out while they go to the kitchen to get more nachos, and it certainly won’t change how they vote. In many ways that is why nothing they have thrown at Trump has stopped support of him up to this point, because its not the man himself that people are voting for, but it’s the idea behind him, that personal freedom and wealth can be increased. Only now, after three years in office, people are seeing bigger paychecks and more jobs, and that will ultimately decide the election, no matter how much money is spent.

The lesson here is that messaging does not control behavior, it simply reflects it. That is why President Trump was able to be elected even though Hillary Clinton outspent him by quite a large amount. It was the message President Trump provided that resonated with voters, and specifically the right kind of voters. He didn’t need to cheat with the illegal California immigration vote either, he was able to get those votes outside the measurements of standard polling and to overcome celebrity endorsements for Hillary, the Deep State manipulations at the Department of Justice and a lot of money from the consultant class working against him at every turn. In the end it didn’t matter because Trump promised to give people “Flow” back to their lives, or to a larger degree than they had ever experienced before. He did it with a great economy that provides opportunities for people who want them. He has done it through deregulation giving more people more creative options for business than in worrying so much about compliance—which soaks up intellectual bandwidth to an even higher degree than high taxes. Personal freedom and more options are what this next election are all about, not paid for messaging. When the rubber hits the road, freedom and personal options are what give traction to political forces, and really, nothing else. To understand all the reasons, I simply must refer the curious reader to the great work of Mihaly Csikszentmiahalyi.

The arrogance of Michael Bloomberg, Nancy Pelosi, even to the degree that Joe Biden refuses to understand just how out of step he truly is in the world with his constant rantings about controlling the amount of ammunition guns can hold, as if that was an important issue to anybody except the most crazy socialists and gun grabbing communists cheering for Iran to beat Trump in some way to hurt the president during an election year, is that they insist on a mode of political theater that the public has long ago rejected, and has been trending in that direction for decades now. Instead of looking at the true science of the moment they are instead insisting that reality is not what it is, and that people are so stupid that their thoughts can be purchased. They can’t be. People will vote for those who give them more freedom, and more resources, and Trump is the only one with a track record showing anything close to that need. Money can’t buy freedom, and that is the lesson Bloomberg will learn very soon, and all those who still have not received the memo because they refuse to take hold of it. A billion dollars or more isn’t close to enough to change minds, because those minds are already made up—and nothing will change that at this point.

The Secret to Toyota: Guns’n’Stories in VR and the benefit of play

I’ve had a lot of interesting conversations with people this week wondering about me and they seem surprised that I know so much about Toyota manufacturing systems at a holistic level and that I play so many video games. And as I explained, I see the two as the same, not separate endeavors. To understand why the Toyota company did so well culturally in the realm of business is not in reading and understanding some magic book, or a three day course given in Tokyo where someone stands over you with a cane to beat you with it if you get the incorrect answer to a question, as many believe is necessary. You won’t get it from an MBA program from any college, its one of those things you either get or you don’t. In Toyota outsiders call it the Toyota Kata, which is doing something over and over again until the task is second nature. In their organization managers were successful in establishing a “kata” of success as defined by the target conditions management sets to achieve superiority in the marketplace. Simple. Yet the world struggles with this concept so it is my hope to help it out a bit with this little article.

Playing video games is an excellent way to develop an internal “kata” to use the Japanese word, for training yourself to get used to winning. To identifying what the target conditions for victory are, then learning the rules for getting there. Every video game may be different just as every workplace can have its challenges, but the idea is the same for everything. Once you learn and expect to win, by nature of instinct you’ll get used to identifying what target conditions need to be found to support victory. Once you can do that in a video game, you will train your mind through a kind of kata to finding it everywhere, in relationships, in business, with your children, in society—everywhere. So, it should not be such a surprise that I play many hours of video games per week. The byproduct of that behavior pattern is to constantly push myself to complete those games and to win whatever the parameters of victory are. Knowing what victory looks like is half the battle and so many people just haven’t trained their minds to measure reality in that way, especially adults.

I have a new VR game for my PlayStation called Guns’n’Stories: Bulletproof which was an absolute delight to me. It is an amazing virtual reality shooting gallery type of game where animated villains attack you from all directions while you stand in the middle of various wild west towns gunning them down with a multitude of very fun weapons. I completed the story mode of the game over this past week and found it wonderfully enchanting, a nice vacation from the rigors of daily life. And I was replaying several of the levels last night while I had the television on listening to Fox News and the reports that the Democrats stormed out of the President’s office over the troop pullout in Syria. I took a moment to think about how much information was pouring into my brain, between the VR headset and furious action from the game as hundreds and hundreds of bad guys came at me to shoot down as fast as I could, then the news broadcast going on in the background as my wife was telling me about all the events of her day, it was a lot. But I’ve trained my mind to deal with all that, and that isn’t that much more unique than a typical day at the office.

The difference between Toyota, or most Japanese companies, is that they have not forgotten how to play with ideas as a culture whereas we have in the West, from Europe to North America. We look at work as, well, work, and the Japanese don’t, its just another part of their life. They enjoy the work most of the time and that is one of the key ingredients to Toyota’s success as a company. Playing a lot of video games over the years allowed me to do much the same with my own life, there isn’t always time to play a football game with a bunch of people, or to go shooting somewhere that you can actually shoot targets by the hundreds of thousands, or fly around in some vessel engaging in dogfights. All of that is play, but more seriously all those games have objectives toward winning the game and in playing them the target conditions for victory are always occurring. You as the player must discover them through playing the game. And the benefits continue long after the game is over because the process has wired into your brain the ability to discover target conditions in everything, even when you aren’t playing video games.

I watch so many adults struggle in life over this very basic misconception. They wonder why their wives don’t love them or find them attractive anymore as they complain that their car is in the shop again, their house isn’t big enough, and that they are overlooked in their jobs for the next big promotion. They ponder why their kids seem indifferent to them as they grow up because they have sacrificed so much as the parent to give them a good life and they feel unappreciated, and of course all those behaviors show up in their work. At 5 PM on the nose they are leaving for that long drive home where they are met in the kitchen by an indifferent spouse with their own version of the same problems. Then when talking to me, they say, “video games are for kids. I’m busy making a living and living in reality.” Of course, to that I say, “reality is defined by your interpretation of it.” If you don’t have the tools intellectually to make reality work for you, but rather against you, then its no wonder you are miserable.” In truth, by playing games, video games or some sport for fun, you are actually helping train your mind to identify target conditions for success, which is what Toyota as an organization does for all the employees that work for it. They know how to define success and getting there becomes a kind of game instead of feeling like just more pointless work. Give people that autonomy, you give them more than a good job, but a good life.

It is always a treat to me to play a cool game like Guns’n’Stories: Bulletproof in a virtual reality environment. After all, to me for that time that the headset is on, that is reality. And to take a break in that kind of world is a real treat. Whether its actual reality or virtual reality the objective is the same, to define target conditions and endeavor for a win. By achieving victory, the mind gets used to seeing and striving for the parameters of victory, and if truth be told, that is the key to the Toyota Kata. Knowing how to win and learning to strive for the ways to do so. Empowering people to win and share in the ownership are the keys to any success. So, from that vantagepoint, video games aren’t so silly, but a good tool for training the mind in how to learn to win.

Monroe Schools Plays it Safe: One of the many reasons that Julie Shaffer has to go

I was very happy to learn that James Hahn, who is running for the Lakota school board is aligned with the Trump plan to allow concealed carry in the Lakota school district to stop potential threats to children at the point of danger. Lynda O’Connor is as well. If people who normally don’t vote in Lakota oriented elections within Butler County actually showed up to vote this November, there is the potential that this important program could be enacted at Lakota. However, as long as Julie Shaffer sits on the board, inaction and liberal policy making will continue, dangerously well into the future. Lakota like most districts without such a concealed carry policy will remain victims, and as the Monroe school system reminded us this past week, the danger is ever present.

Of course, the alternative to under preparation for moment to moment dangers is over reaction, and to their credit, Monroe schools in southwest Ohio has been very aggressive in monitoring social media accounts and cracking down on every little threat, which the Wednesday alarm turned out to be this past week. The alarm was real, but the threat wasn’t credible. Better to be safe than sorry. Yet a few years ago Monroe schools was accused of going to far digging into the text messages between students which led to the police isolating a young man and making an example out of him for a very minor commentary on his cell phone. For that the kid was suspended and had his cell phone confiscated by the police and was isolated within the student population for “security.” Better to ruin the reputation of one kid than to have a bunch of dead kids due to a rash of violence would be the reasoning. But that is what state controlled security looks like, they are watching everything we do even outside of the classroom, because that is where the roots of threats start and must be detected.

As all trained shooters know however is that the best way to deal with violence isn’t in suspending the liberty of all your students or voters, but in dealing with the problem when it occurs. Just doing the little things right, such as diligence on security check ins, following up on rumors with logic, and carrying guns for when and if a threat emerges so that it can be dealt with right then and there, not five to ten minutes later once the police arrive. That is after all the reason that our Constitution promotes private people carrying guns, so that the other aspects of the Constitution can be protected, such as unlawful searches and seizures.

Given the Monroe approach, which is keeping threats off the radar, but it’s always running all over privacy rights all in the name of safety, and that is the problem. Is that really what we want to teach our children, that their rights can be always superseded by the state need to protect them, when in fact they have a right and obligation to protect themselves? Of course, I would say not but this is a question for the general population. For most people safety is the limit of their concern, all they care about is whether or not their kids come home from school, and shallow thinking politicians will be happy to give them the minimum of their concern requirements. But at a cost, philosophically, and legally. Should the state take responsibility for safety or is it the task of each and every individual. Leave the math, the reading, and the history to the schools, but for the parents and school administrators, its their job to make sure things remain safe.

I’ve debated Julie Shaffer on WLW radio before, and in other forums and let me just say as politely as possible, that type of deep dive conversation is not within her intellect. She’s a pretty shallow stream, not very deep. For her, so long as Lakota, or any school system prevents mass shootings by intruding on the rights of the students and their parents, she’s fine with that, even if it does push kids into accepting that everything they do in life can fall under the purview of the state all in the name of safety and security. So long as something can be deemed “safe,” people like Shaffer can justify personal intrusion of the students. That is why she led the school board at Lakota to a stall out on the Trump initiative to arm teachers in the schools with concealed carry hoping to run out the clock on the inevitable act of violence that any district with 16,000 kids might embark on. Its safer to turn the responsibility over to the state and throw the rights of the students out the window. And when they grow up, they will then vote for the same policies because its all they know.

Lucky at Monroe this past week the threat wasn’t credible. But one of these days it will be, whether its there, or at Lakota, or some other big-name school in the famous southern Ohio districts outside of the I-275 loop. Its easier for shallow school board members to kick the can down the road and let someone else solve that problem for them even if it does step all over individual rights—because on the political left, that is the agenda anyway. At Lakota presently three of the five school board members are what we’d consider liberal, while the other two trends toward conservative. If James Hahn could find the votes from a sleepy public, that ratio could be turned around and this whole concept of safety and philosophy would have a chance to be heard. But not until a major change occurs.

Monroe, which is right next to Lakota as far as districts go has shown the trend of the future, monitor everything and at the slightest provocation, over-react. Play the better safe than sorry angle and hope you get to the bad guys before the bad guys get to you. But in the process, lots of innocent people are being scrutinized in ways that would have sent shudders up our spines just a few decades ago where nobody would ever think that such a day of personal intrusion would ever be acceptable. Just think of two more decades into the future where these kids will be running things, and what they will be willing to justify all in the name of safety.

Of course, the cause of the tendency toward violence is very much a current debate. I would say that we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg. Fatherless homes, failures of state care, a lack of personal responsibility where everyone gets a trophy, the legalization of marijuana, the over medication of depression medicine, the failure of religion, all just to name a few are contributing to the concept of violence against classmates that certainly wasn’t a consideration when I was in school. I would place the blame squarely at the feet of liberalism, which most of these school boards are functioning from, so we are mathematically inclined to get more of the bad behavior not less. That means we need to get our approach to this crisis faster than we are now. Kicking the can down the road doesn’t work when you run out of road, and I would say that’s where we find ourselves presently. And the demanded action will require more than a letter sent home to parents.

The 1977 Act of Emergency Economic Powers: Ending communism once and for all

Not that its any kind of surprise, but it is important to note, Democrats do wish harm on you and me so they can have a hope of beating Donald Trump in the next election coming in 2020. They’ve tried everything, the Russian hoax, the constant name calling and belittling of his entire family, and openly mocking everything he has done over the last three years as President of the United States. Now their last and only hope is to harm the economy because its all they have left. Everyone knows that Trump is going to run on his great economy so its logical that they would try to harm it, and in so doing, would wish harm on every single American just so they can gain power. Make sure to remember that. They don’t care how many lives might be wrecked in the process, all they care about is gaining and keeping power. So the economy is their target and I am very pleased to learn that President Trump is perfectly willing to protect the economy with the 1977 Act of Emergency Economic Powers.

The economy is largely driven by sentiment. A happy society generally has a happy economy, so all the psychological mechanisms that make human beings do the things that they tend to do are what drive up economic numbers. The Trump presidency has only created good sentiment for the economy by reducing taxes, putting money back in the pockets of the people who create good sentiment, and deregulating the industry so that more people can participate at a faster rate. The low unemployment that we have had and several consecutive quarters of positive GDP growth are only scary to Democrats because its proof that the President’s policies have been working and show no signs of abating by the next election, so its now or never for them and they are trying to throw the kitchen sink at him in an all out effort to defeat him in the election. Its as simple as that.

China as a communist power has been leveraging against the United States for decades and there are plenty of Americans on the liberal side of politics who helped make that happen and wanted to drive our economy into the waiting hands of China. As a result, much more of our modern media is owned or is directly influenced by China making them pawns for Trump’s trade war which had to happen. China couldn’t be allowed to continue to mooch off the American economy the way they were. Any of my readers here know that I have been reporting for decades that China’s economy is directly tethered to America. Without America they have nothing. So in any negotiation with them, this must be revealed. Once China put $75 billion worth of tariffs on American imports Friday, it was the best move possible for Trump to order all American companies out of China and into some other market, preferably America. This of course shocked the world, but its nothing short of the best strategy. We aren’t talking about simple and free open markets here, we are talking about defeating at the very least communism once and for all. And for that, the sympathizers are furious, especially those domestic enemies in North America who have been trying to get communism put in place for most of the last century.

I don’t talk about it much because it was so long ago but my sentiments about communism and the political left was solidified a long time ago. As I have reported, I have had a colorful life and spoken often with people from all kinds of backgrounds. I’ve always been a conservative, but I have a personality that gets along with anybody anywhere about anything. I can speak to people from the other side without losing myself and that has given me the opportunity to socialize with many kinds of people over the years. And so it was that for a period in my life I was invited to all the big parties in Cincinnati that sort of hung off the University of Cincinnati who lived along the rim of Clifton overlooking the city in their very nice homes and I got to know their minds well. I spoke to them as I would anybody, with honor and respect, but any compassion I had for the other side’s way of thinking evaporated in those gatherings. Essentially, they were communists, they wanted communism in America and they were set to do anything to get it. And when I talk about these people, I’m talking about the Dwight Tillery crowd when he was mayor, and Roxanne Qualls and the type of people who hung on their every word. There were the top architects of the city at these events and producers of television and stage plays, owners of the media, all the big wigs of our “culture.” So I learned first hand what they were all about and it was quite clear that the left wing of politics wanted China’s communism.

Clinton was president during those years and those types of people were very ostentatious about their sentiments. They figured that it wouldn’t be long when China would simply absorb America’s economy and we’d all be working for the communist, so they were happy. When Clinton came to town they all rushed out to lick his boots and they were elated to do it. They put up with me and my views because they liked my charisma and they figured I wasn’t a threat. My America was dying and being compassionate liberals, they didn’t mind my acquaintance because deep down inside, someone has to do the work of living, and being natural mooches, they knew to stay close to a guy like me. So, I learned a lot from them, and those types of people haven’t changed no matter what city we are talking about. Only now their theories have failed, and they are desperately trying to cover their tracks whereas then they were just getting a few presidents, in Clinton, Bush and Obama who would prop up communist China and help bring that socialist philosophy to America.

In that regard it doesn’t hurt my feelings at all that companies in China are struggling to figure out to do with President Trump in the White House. But the bottom line is that this fight had to happen and its important that Trump do what he’s doing. The anger about it is obvious because the liberal political party has completely tethered themselves to China over the years and now with the Hong Kong protests and the squeeze from United States tariffs, the Chinese economy is in real danger. And this is all happening at exactly the right time, year three of President Trump’s term with an election year coming up and the potential of four more years of the guy. Liberals know they have no other window if ever to try to topple Trump, so the economy is their target, and they hope it tanks so they can save China and reverse the trend of restoring economic power in the capitalism of the west once and for all to end a debate that was subtly started with the publication of Karl Marx’s works and to restore to the world an economy that does not have communism in it, for the benefit of all.
