The Most Beautiful Woman in Africa: Setting the bar high for those too lazy to reach for it

In any other year in any other administration Melania Trump’s trip to Africa climaxing at the pyramids of Egypt would have been a world stopping event of high praise and elegance. Just the pageantry of one of the world’s most beautiful women going on safari in Kenya or standing boldly in front of the Great Sphinx would have filled every magazine cover in the fashion industry with her grace. And as physically stunning in her beauty as Melania is she’s smart and gracious as well representing America in the best way possible in every category. There isn’t much to criticize about her, and there is a whole lot to like. But back home with the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, and an unemployment number that was historic all on its own, her husband’s big news overshadowed what was one of the most spectacular trips a First Lady ever conducted in America to foreign soil and it’s a shame that most people missed it. But astonishingly the attention Melania did get was roundly negative because some of the outfits she chose to wear were just too good for average people in the media to withstand.

What’s important about the reaction that most reporters, and liberal internet trolls had about Melania’s visit to some of Africa’s great places was that it revealed the essential hate that has fueled the Democratic Party for years. Part of that hate you can find in any junior high school when the first girl of a sixth or seventh grade class starts showing breast development or other signs of a blooming flower that will start to attract he attention of boys. Personally speaking, I’ve always felt that wearing hats were stylish and were respectful to the society for which you represented, and I’ve done it all my life. I used to wear a cowboy hat everywhere when I was in grade school from fifth grade all the way up to and past my graduation and people would say the meanest things. The more they did it, the more I wore the hats and more often. Essentially anytime individuals show themselves to be apart from the herd either through personal beauty or chosen attire, the mob mentality that is part of our animal makeup wants to beat it down into submission to let everyone know that standing out is not a desired trait.

The hatred that comes from people toward those of exception and independence comes from not wanting any individual to raise a bar that others might feel the pressure to live up to. The true meaning behind the name calling and social banter is to make those exceptional people feel the pressure to come back down to earth with the rest of the world and not to raise the level of performance expectation too high. You can actually see this behavior at work in just about every industry on planet earth. Average performance will get you a seat at the table with the cool people. Society calls people cool who are the pace setters for everyone else, and all people are supposed to stay under the bars that they set. Today the “cool people” are marijuana smoking hip hop artists like Snoop Dogg or tattooed freaks and body pierced losers like those seen in typical pop music bands. The not so subtle message to their followers is to revert toward tribalism and collective unity through shared pain and personal mutilation. From the cool people of establishment society these days it is good to mutilate your individual bodies and to seek redemption in collective associations. Melania’s message to the world while touring Africa was the opposite, and that is what set the criticism of her afire.

In America many in the media and in entertainment industries have tried to lower the outward image of the average American into something that low intelligence, lottery buying, gambling addicts would feel comfortable with. Forget about Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, instead show the world Jack Black farting on stage. People have an easier time living up to the low standard as opposed to aspiring to the high one so over time the expectation has drifted into recess with the losers of the world becoming the cool people—and the cool people are always the trend setters. Only Melania Trump was one of those trend setters who built a career well before she met Donald Trump as a top fashion model in the industry selling images which people were fine with so long as it stayed in the realm of sex. But now that she is a First Lady with policy influence, it was a real threat to the status quo to have her running around Africa looking like she strolled off the pages of GQ inspiring people to greatness. But for Melania she was promoting her “Be Best” campaign and how best to achieve that but by looking and acting exceptional.

The hatred from the left essentially comes from any reference to exceptionalism where people are expected to behave at a level of excellence. After all the political left has attempted to remove all examples of goodness from our society by stripping away any level of expectation. The result is what we are now seeing among millennials who are suddenly mystified why people don’t just love them because they stepped into a room. Liberals did everything they could to push fathers out of the home and to marry the mothers of children who suddenly looked to government as the home care provider. A scheme that was more than just a little obvious, because instead of loving a father the children would grow up loving government and would keep politicians in power who were all to happy to be that parental role in their lives all their lives.

But Melania broke more than a few rules when she dressed to match her enthusiasm for a unique country and all its ancient mysteries instead of being sensitive to the lazy and lackluster with less than a sensational presentation of herself. She was supposed to be sensitive to the needs of the weak and those not as gifted physically as she was. She was expected to cut her hair short and to put on a few pounds to make average people not feel inferior. She was expected to stuff her breasts up tight against her body and not wear pants that showed the curves of her fuselage. Most of left leaning people wanted to see a Mrs. Potato head, not a fashion model working from the White House. These kinds of trips were supposed to be reserved to people like Taylor Swift and Angelina Jolie from the Hollywood crowd, not a sitting First Lady. How could anybody in the future ever compete with Melania Trump?

Yet that was the point of the trip, the “Be Best” tour of Africa, to inspire the world to be better. And Melania did that. In retaliation the media reluctantly covered the trip with a kind of stubbornness that a child refusing to eat might display. But nobody could say she didn’t represent America well. From the perspective of liberals, she did too good. Yet that’s exactly what we want from a representative to the White House that we elected to conduct our business. We want the people of Africa to be successful and to be inspired. If they want to learn from our economic system, we are happy to teach them. But Melania didn’t go there to put on a tribal headdress and bow to some tribal king who still thinks the moon is going to help his crops grow. She went there to show them that prosperity was there for all to partake in and if they wanted to look like her and act like her then America could show them the way. Pandering to the cultures of the past is fine but humans should never limit themselves to such restrictions. And Melania Trump showed the world that the way to escape those limits is to “be Best” and that all starts by the way we conduct ourselves in public. And in that regard Melania Trump was “The Best” and most beautiful that Africa had ever seen. True, beauty is only skin deep, but what Melania showed was even deeper than that. She was the whole package and she represented America wonderfully.

The Latté Sipping Liberal Kathy Wyenandt and her Lakota Levy Campaign of 2013: Empowering perverts, porn addicts and government schools to limit the next generation

I didn’t think much of the latté sipping liberal Kathy Wyenandt and her Lakota levy campaign of 2013 until she started putting up signs everywhere wanting to run for the Ohio House of Representatives seat in the 52nd district. I couldn’t even remember who she was until I saw that the local newspapers and other forms of print media were stating that her big experience for such an important job in politics was the 2013 tax increase that only won by 1% point after Lakota spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of tax payer money on advisors to help the cushion the public for a big raise to give their teachers—all in the name of children of course. That’s when I remembered Kathy Wyenandt and her levy loving barrage of guilty moms who looked to Lakota schools to babysit their kids all day and call it an education then wanted to pat themselves on the back for giving teachers raises because they wanted to maintain the illusion that “education” in America meant spending money on public sector unions and that contract negotiations were all about giving over-priced employees everything they wanted. I guess she figured everyone forgot and now it was safe to come out of the hole she put herself in and run for a big state office?

I of course argued against all this paying teachers infinite amounts of money, which was a very unpopular position, because most people want to believe that the public-school system is there to help them and make their children better off. And sometimes it does. I can say that I have a grandson in Monroe schools right now and he has a fantastic teacher, but we are talking grades K through 5 when everything for kids is coming alive. His teacher doesn’t make much money yet, she is right out of college and full of ideas, and I think she’s great. And some of the teachers that Kathy Wyenandt wanted to give six figure pay rates too through the levy passage at Lakota are good teachers—some. However, the average rate of pay for Lakota teachers is up into the mid-70,0000 range per year, much higher than the average pay of the taxpayers who have to cover their bill. Unfortunately, reality has something else to say about the nature of teachers and their social worth that politicians like Kathy Wyenandt never learned.

The proper business model for a public education teacher is to bring them in young, but once they start getting up in the pay scale to encourage them to shop themselves on the open market like a free agent to keep payrolls down. During the Lakota levy campaign of 2013 Kathy Wyenandt and her foot soldiers crusading for higher taxes to protect those teachers sold the assumption that the reason we needed to pay teachers more was to stay competitive and to retain the “experience” that teachers gained from years in the classroom. But I couldn’t help but notice that younger teachers were more effective often than older ones, and I gained that experience by raising my own daughters and watching the various characters in public school that they had to deal with at both Mason then Lakota schools over the course of their youth.

People are people whether or not they are teachers being paid to babysit our children while we are busy building a life for ourselves, which is what I would say most of public education is all about for the parents. For the government schools, public education is a brain washing opportunity to train future voters in the ways of liberalism. But that is another story, in the context of teacher experience I had a person send me a Tweet that reminded me of all this which I have included here. It is a video of a male teacher who had gone back to his office while the class worked on assignments. It’s a few years old, but is just as relevant today as it was then. The teacher was watching porn during class when a student opened his door and walked in on him. The student was openly harassed in class by the teacher and embarrassed into submission, which is a lot more common an occurrence the most people would care to admit. Most students could tell adults willing to listen of teachers in any school who are creepy and p to no good like this obvious porn addict featured in the Tweet. But adults who are either too busy with their lives to do much about it, or liberal activists like Kathy Wyenandt who want the government schools to do the work they were designed to do in creating a more liberal voting base are happy to overlook these bad teachers. Instead they argue such teachers need to be paid more money.

I wouldn’t say that teaching is any harder than other jobs, but life does have a way of chipping away at people. Like the teacher I mentioned in Monroe, she is great, and I hope that if I meet her twenty years from now that she is just as optimistic about life then as she is now. But give her a few husbands that cheat on her with some younger and sluttier woman, give her kids of her own who grow up and away leaving her feeling like a used up empty husk of a person, or an achieved home of her dreams that is outdated by the time she is fifty—parents that die, dream cars that rust away and a thousand disappointments from a media culture that never really lives up to the hype on the commercials and its unlikely that she will be as enthusiastic about her job as a middle-ager bitter about life and trying to teach young people to think big and dream about learning the alphabet. By that point she’ll likely be in the $70 to $80K range in pay, and she’ll be a mess of a person and the kids will know it. That’s when the district should cut her loose and let her high wages become someone else’s problem, not the tax payers. Bitter employees who evolved from broken dreams meeting reality are the kind of people who watch porn too much and take their frustrations out on children, and nobody wants that, especially a school.

Yet liberal do-gooders who think the biological instincts of motherhood make them capable of making hard decisions about management, such as the examples I have provided regarding the type of mentality that forces districts to cut employees who might want to watch too much porn or abuse kids with power trips because they are so ineffective in their regular lives. All those do-gooders know to do as liberals is spend more money to hopefully make everything better, to make the porn addicts and child molesters posing as teachers to see the light with good pay and benefits and to retain them for way too long once their enthusiasm for the job has long left them. Teachers are not good because they are well paid, they are good when they want to do the job of watching other people’s children because they love children. Take a young 27-year-old teacher out to lunch and most of them are beaming with excitement about the opportunity to help guide children toward a better life. Take a middle-aged train wreck out to lunch and talk about their job with kids who have been teaching middle school or high school for ten years and you’ll hear a different story. Add to that career disappointment their own lives of bad marriages, unfulfilled life goals and the realities of aging and what you often find are people who shouldn’t be anywhere near a kid under twenty. Because they are too depressing, and they certainly aren’t worth paying 90K per year.

So I suppose I should thank Kathy Wyenandt for putting all these liberal blue signs of hers up for this District race she is running for. I hadn’t thought about how much I despise people like her who lobby for overpaid public employees for a long time. But it is people like her who allow such corrupt people to be employed at such ridiculous wage rates and have screwed up the property tax rip offs that we have experienced in Butler County, Ohio. For people like her it comes down to wanting to believe that government schools can be good baby sitters. But reality says something far more dangerous, in retaining teachers too long you expose children to all the bitterness and disappointment that mentors can pass on to kids and that often limits the potential that young people have in life, it certainly doesn’t help them. And it is for all that which Kathy Wyenandt thinks she should be elected into a higher office. Liberals like Kathy are dangerous because they believe such things, and that isn’t a problem so long as they are minding their own business. But often their antics cost all of us a lot of money, and if Kathy Wyenandt has one thing on her resume that says what kind of person she is, all you have to look at is her role in passing higher taxes in the Lakota school district. And you’ll know all you need to know.

Kathy Wyenandt, the Tax and Spend Liberal: She led the Lakota levy and what followed was poor performance and teacher raises

The one thing voters need to know about Kathy Wyenandt is that she led the team that increased taxes on residents of Butler County. She is very proud of her efforts at leading the 2013 levy campaign to increase taxes for Lakota residents and listening to her talk, the campaign was a great success. The levy had failed three previous times and the vote in 2013 was promoted by her and her fellow progressive activists aggressively as a necessity for the children. It passed by less than 1% of the vote only after Sheriff Jones was coaxed into supporting the tax increase in the name of safety for kids, which was a complete fabrication of the school’s intentions. What they were really after were raises for the teachers who were already averaging over $70,000 in wages taking their average monthly pay to over $117 per month. I certainly did my part to warn Butler County residents what Kathy Wyenandt and her levy loving friends were up to, and most people listened. That’s when the levy supporters turned to dirty tricks to attempt the tax increase passage. And for that one of Kathy’s fellow helpers had to plead guilty in a court of law.

I’m still waiting for my apology from Joe Rehm, who was a radical Lakota levy activist along with young Kathy Wyenandt who as she says was leading these efforts. I’m sure in her run for the 52nd Ohio House seat that she’ll say she didn’t know Joe, that the penny loafing vandal acted on his own in his little European mini coup as a crusader for “the children,” but then she also says she wants to help tax payers now, and that she supports the Second Amendment as a liberal. So who can believe anything she says? Anyway, Joe had to stand in front of Judge McDonough at 12:30 on November 13th 2013, just days after the smoke had cleared on November 6th and Lakota levy radicals like Wyenandt were celebrating their narrow 1% victory after spending literally hundreds of thousands of dollars promoting the levy over the previous two years by hiring consultants and using the Delphi Technique to try to convert previous no votes into reluctant yeses. The vandal Joe Rehm had been charged for running all over the Lakota school district along with radicalized students and many other crazed levy supporters and were stealing the No Lakota Levy signs that my group had been putting up to oppose the tax increase.

As Kathy obviously knows now that she has had to go get money from all the local unions to put up signs of her own for her current campaign, its expensive. Joe wasn’t the only vandal who stole signs trying to sabotage voter opinion with a show of force against their beloved tax increase but he represented the activism of his leader Kathy Wyenandt well. To their minds the levy was for the children, but to my mind and the other members of the No Lakota Levy opposition, Lakota needed to manage their finances much better. Their average teacher pay was too high which was destroying the already generous budget that Lakota had been given to educate students in the district. I was proposing a 30% pay cut to balance the budget which of course the labor union found appalling. But the essence of the issue was that Lakota teachers were making too much money and blowing up the budget and it was people like Kathy Wyenandt who were saying that teachers didn’t make enough.

I stated from the very beginning of the 2013 Lakota levy campaign that the money from the tax increase had nothing to do with school security, it was all about giving teachers a raise, which they didn’t need. Lakota was getting ready to enter a period of declining enrolment so Lakota should have been looking at closing some schools and laying off teachers, not hiring more and paying them more. Of course, to Kathy Wyenandt and her levy lovers it was like talking to a crazed cannibal cult in the South Pacific on the hunt for a head to appease the gods of education. What I was talking about regarding cost savings wasn’t even in their vocabulary. As the vote neared the levy supporters were getting desperate because they saw still within the community mass resistance to their aggressive tax increases for home owners. That’s when the dirty tricks emerged, one of which Joe Rehm was caught acting as a vandal stealing No Lakota Levy signs attempting to sabotage in the minds of voters any resistance to the tax increase proposal.

Joe Rehm was found guilty. I had the pictures and his license plate posted on this blog for all to see and for the curious I have links back to those old articles. But I never received an apology for the terrible conduct of Kathy Wyenandt’s levy radicals for the thousands of dollars of vandalism her people cost my group, and I never heard her apologize for inflating the Lakota budget needlessly. In 2014, just a few months after the big vote she is so proud of Lakota gave the teachers their big raise which I had warned about. She has cost us all many millions of dollars a year since then and Lakota, just as I said would happen has been declining anyway scholastically. Kathy’s crusade to help pay teachers more money backfired and the district has been on the decline since. The reason is that her value for older more experienced teachers was wrong. It is the young and hungry that help a district with fresh ideas and ambition. The older more expensive teachers get too comfortable and complacent over time, which seems to be the problem at Lakota now that we have too many teachers paid too much money to stay instead of constantly recruiting new talent at the bottom of the pay scale. That is the kind of management that Kathy Wyenandt fought for and the values she plans to bring to the 52nd District as a House of Representative—support for radical vandals, employees paid too highly that require tax increases to cover their wages and a disassociation with performance among workers on a payroll.

Watching her modern campaign for the 52nd District is a lot like watching that old levy campaign she and her activist friends conducted at Lakota back in 2013. She is trying to say all the right things to get elected in a conservative district, she says she’s a gun carrying supporter of the 2nd Amendment yet she wants more gun laws that are in line with typical Democrats. She wants to promote gun safety in the schools, yet she is against arming teachers which is what Sheriff Jones is trying to get done in Butler County. It was Jones who helped push that Lakota levy into passage by the way. Without his support Kathy would have seen a fourth levy loss, and she doesn’t have the endorsement of the Sheriff for her current political move. She’s also saying she wants to fix the over-reliance on local property taxes to fund schools which sounds good, but what she wants is for the state to fix the funding system and to disperse money to districts more evenly. She still wants money for overly paid public employees which is why they are so eager to put her signs out for her hoping she’ll get elected, so they can get a pay raise while everyone else makes 30% to 40% less on average.

Below are links to further information on Kathy Wyenandt and her friends from the old Lakota levy days. That levy was so unpopular I’m surprised she is using it as part of her campaign for a House seat in 2018. It wasn’t that long ago. But after all, she is a liberal. That doesn’t make her evil, just not the kind of person you want to put into an office where management is the priority. Being nice isn’t a qualifying attribute for an office that requires a lot of responsibility. People before politics sounds like a soccer mom trying to get all the kids to agree on where to get ice cream, and with her experience as a mom, I’m sure she has good intentions. But her history with the Lakota levy and her support of higher taxes for overly paid employees, and when those employees got their money, their performance went down anyway and show how out of touch Kathy Wyenandt really is. Of course, she has the endorsement of all the local labor unions. Everyone in public office would want to sit across the table from Kathy Wyenandt and ask for a raise, because she would give it to them without expecting anything in return. But for the rest of us, we know better.

Below are some links to the past for reference: Maybe at the debate in the VOA Learning Center on September 25th in West Chester at 7 PM I’ll get my apology from Kathy for her pro tax people’s vandalism of the No Lakota Levy signs for which Joe was guilty. I’ve been waiting five years for it. If not her accepting direct responsibility maybe at least she will condemn the behavior of her old tax and spend friends. We’ll see, because I will be there to speak with her about it.

The Con Man Barack Obama: A party out of ideas, weapons and ethics–looking like the party of O.J. Simpson

You know how you can detect a loser, watch Barack Obama’s speech from Anaheim, California. There are some amazingly revelatory moments in it that tell you everything you need to know about the upcoming midterm election and how well Democrats will do. Especially at the beginning when he’s talking about his two trips to Disneyland when he was younger. He’s trying to copy Donald Trump’s shoot from the hip style of communication, but it comes out sounding like a criminal awaiting a life sentence in jail for tampering with the last election and he’s terrified that people are going to see through his con job. I’d go so far to say that Barack Obama looks a lot like OJ Simpson as the former football star tried to put on that glove trying to make it look too small. Sure, OJ got away with murder and most logical people feel the same way, but Obama is in that circumstance presently, that uncertain body posture of a man guilty of many things but hoping that he can pull off the con job one more time to stay out of jail.

I will have to say that I was in a particularly good mood while I was watching Obama. I had just received my new Harvey Deprimer which is a patented design of a tool I was using in my shop to prep shell casings for reloading on several different calibers. It was raining outside and I had about 2 hours of gun work to do at my work bench in my shop and I was enjoying doing it, so I watched Obama’s speech with a kind of Heaven-like disinterest. It didn’t anger me that I knew how much Obama was lying, and how he was trying to associate his administration with the suddenly good economy. “He didn’t build that,” literally, LOL. The moment that Donald Trump was elected the stock market took off, but not a day, or even an hour before. And with each new deregulation that the Trump administration unveiled the economy did better. With the tax cuts, the economy did better, and with each new trade deal worked out, more American jobs came back to the mainland, and all that happened because of a direct result of the Trump presidency. Obama literally had nothing to do with any of it, yet there he was in Anaheim, and other places suddenly trying to lay claim to the economy. Sure, I knew he was lying and it might of otherwise brought me to a great rage of anger, but hey, I had my Harvey Deprimer and I was prepping shell casings and all was right with the world. I even had a Mello Yello on my bench to sip on so I was in an unusually good situation. Not even Obama was going to ruin my day.

So without all that anger to fuel my opinions I was able to watch the former President, and soon to be convicted felon honestly, and the guy looked terrible. He looked guilty and uncomfortable. And instead of making the Democrats look better positioned to win any seats in the upcoming midterms they looked desperate. Apparently, Barack Obama is all they feel they have to challenge Trump, and that isn’t very good. That is like putting a caged deer with two broken legs into a gladiator arena with a 1000-pound lion that hasn’t had breakfast yet. On the campaign trail Trump is going to slaughter the deer, and the Democrats are in even more trouble than anybody has previously let on, even the conservative media outlets.

If the Democrats go younger they end up with people who are open socialists too rebellious to wear the donkey suit. That leaves the Democrats having to go old and what they end up with are a bunch of old cocaine addicts and hippie rejects trying to stuff their communist party memberships into their dirty underwear that their moms forgot to wash in the 60s, for which they are still wearing. They aren’t likable, and they sound phony. And even when they do manage to have a candidate that doesn’t come across as a lunatic their platform is one that has been soundly rejected in the last election and they have nothing to repackage any kind of message that people can believe in.

This issue really is noticeable in a local election near my home for the 52nd District of Ohio where George Lang has a challenger in Kathy Wyenandt for the Ohio House seat that George currently holds. Kathy isn’t a hole in her head liberal like the Obamanites, she’s more of the soccer mom, levy supporter type who gets into these kinds of things meaning well, but doesn’t have anything to fuel her intentions but to say, “I’m a mom, vote for me, because we all love moms right? So vote for me and my lightly colored blue sign that doesn’t show any patriotic reference to the American flag and I’m going to say, ‘people over politics’ is more important than anything. So vote for me.” While people might like her presentation, it comes across sounding like a cheerleader leading a cheer for a football team that is getting destroyed on the football field by the other team and it just comes out sounding foolish. And she is an example of the best of what the Democrats have these days. All across the country Democrats are turning to these mad moms and open socialists to save their party and that just isn’t going to fly. What does “people before politics” even mean? We’ve already had the wealth redistribution intentions of the political left on full display from the Obama years and it caused the Trump election. So what do Democrats want, more of that? Kathy Wyenandt’s campaign was over before she even signed her name announcing her run with that kind of attitude. Not that voters can take anything for granted, but if she represents the new face of the Democratic Party, then liberals need to put that Halloween mask back on the shelf at Wal-Mart, because it isn’t scaring anybody.

If Democrats had anybody they wouldn’t be putting Obama out there to speak, but they don’t. They are empty of ideas and likeable personalities. And if it wasn’t for a media that hasn’t figured out how dead they all really were philosophically based on real American sentiment; these modern Democrats would have been deceased long ago. Just because the media is beating the hell out of their dead carcasses with CPR saying “look, the blood is still pumping in their bodies,” we only have to point out the reality, “no, there are so many holes in their bodies that you have pushed all the blood out of them, there is nothing there. You’ve killed them.” And now all they have is a future felon to send on the road to bluff their way into hopefully a few victories. They have nothing to offer but Barack Obama, the Democrats version of the O.J. Simpson trial trying to put on the glove of the murderer and trying to make it look too small for his hands. But we all know he’s guilty and apparently by the look on his face, so does he.

Ancient Advanced Civilization Discovered in South America: Breaking free of institutionalized control of information and discovering a whole new world

One of the really great things about deforestation is that the covers are being ripped off the earth and we are discovering things we should have always known, such as the very interesting finds discovered along the Amazon River. The same types of earth works, largely in the form of ditches now, have been discovered all along the Amazon River dating back to at least 6000 years BC, well before any previous thoughts about human civilization have been applied to the area. Generally, it is accepted that the Incan people rose out of somewhere, had an empire, and were conquered by the Spanish essentially and that all human history flowed out of those events. However, that simply was not the case. We are discovering, all over the world the same type of earth works that were essentially part of the culture at Stonehenge, which means that these cultures were interacting with one another somehow. It is highly unlikely that there was a natural predilection for all human beings to be driven toward the same compulsion to build the same kind of structures just a few thousand years out of the last Ice Age.

On my phone I have a picture for my background of the crystal skull from the British Museum. I get questioned about it all the time because at first glance it looks like I have a strange fascination with skulls, but that’s certainly not the case. That crystal skull at the British Museum is an item of fascination for me. It was one of the reasons that I traveled to that museum, just to see that small exhibit. It for me is one of those obscurities that doesn’t fit the assumptions made by institutional archaeology. In my hometown museum in at the Cincinnati Museum Center they have a display of what they call The Cincinnati Tablet which was found in a very large burial mound under what is now Fountain Square. Like the crystal skull, the tablet is far more advanced than what we assume nomadic cultures that were associated with Indian societies could have, or would have produced. I had a pretty good discussion with a member of management at the British Museum where they became pretty frustrated with me for even asking the question. They insisted that the skull was a fake because the methods for cutting the artifact out of a block of quartz wouldn’t be invented by Spain until the very recent past. So, there is no way it was buried for thousands of years in Central America. Of course, I think that guy is wrong and the general assumptions of the British Museum are inaccurate. History likely has followed more of a Vico Cycle than a liner evolution.

Within days of my visit to the British Museum I was at Stonehenge and at Old Sarum—even at the castle at Dover and I continued to be amazed at the earthworks which were in some cases being exhibited as works of the Normans and Romans who came before them. But obviously many of these vast structures of earth moving were already in place before the Romans arrived. Even in Canterbury the archaeology that had been conducted there before the heavily Catholic influence of the cathedrals arrived, ancient earthworks were a large part of the motivations of that very old city. My experiences in England put a whole new light on the earthworks of my home region of Ohio where the mound builders had been thought to have been derived from some Indian culture, but that clearly wasn’t the case. Institutionalized archaeologists may have wanted that to be the situation, but the evidence against those assumptions is just too obvious. We are learning that very large people were associated with the Ohio earthworks and that they likely came from the part of the world, and culture that built Stonehenge and Avebury. The tendency toward ritual landscapes and moving large amounts of earth for rather complex mathematical motivations are abundant in North America as they are in England.

One thing that England has going on in a very positive way is that they have vastly deregulated the field of archaeology. What they are doing with the English Heritage group is vastly unlocking their own past and letting the arrows of history point to regions all over the world coming from that very old part of the human continental development history. We are talking about a period of time when humans were building massive monuments in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and the Indus Valley. And it’s entirely possible that under the Persian Gulf,

Mediterranean Sea and the English Channel are the remains of vast civilizations long gone because they built their villages and cities right after the Ice Age where sea levels were many hundreds of feet lower completely changing the coastlines of ancient people. By the work these ancient people left behind they obviously knew the earth was round and they had no problem daring the oceans to travel to far away lands. They obviously new about North America, and now it is evident that they were communicating with South America and some people were even building empires of their own along the Amazon River well before any previous generation of scientists thought that people could rub sticks together to make a fire. I don’t think we are looking at a bunch of independent nomads doing the same thing by coincidence, but a complex global culture that was interacting and trading with one another well before any previous assumptions.

When it is asked why I write all these articles without being employed by some university or museum, the answer is that it is because of the age we currently live in. In politics things are being decentralized, the same is happening with information. My hope in writing these articles is to inspire more people in this time of “Wikileaks” where institutional control over scientific assumptions yield to wide-eyed wonder and we can really get to the bottom of our own history by examining the information wherever it takes us. With the advent of blogs, personal cell phones, and the internet in general the people who are most passionate about science don’t have to ride the rules and regulations of scientific institutions to make their own discovers. All they really have to do is look at the ground and report what they see instead of looking toward National Geographic to tell them what they see. And under that type of thinking we are now discovering that the Amazon River was producing cultures just as sophisticated as the earthwork builders of Stonehenge and the monuments of Egypt. They have just been covered for thousands of years by vegetation overgrowth of an unmanaged rain forest. The institutional gate keepers of course want to keep these things hidden by blaming deforestation on capitalism to keep smart minds from even asking the question as to why all those earthworks are even there in the Amazon. The institutionalists would rather not know, they’d rather keep us all looking to them for the answer as to why crystal skulls were made well before Spain invented a technique for making them, or there was trade between the continents before Europeans could build a boat to cross the Mediterranean, let alone the Atlantic or Pacific Oceans. Institutions want history to begin when they were formed and they hope to conceal any history before them like some second husband tries to pretend that his wife didn’t have lovers before he was even a consideration.

We are in the age of the Wiki–Wikileaks, Wikipedia, Wikiweapons—“Wiki” everything—we are in the age of open information exchanges that bypass the traditions of institutions and that is resulting in an explosion of archaeological understanding. And in that process, we are reexamining everything about our past, which is good. Its better to know than to not. Political assumptions in support of institutional control wants to dictate that the “Native Americans” were a nice docile group of communists living in peace with the earth until those mean Europeans arrived and wrecked their Utopia. But that’s not true, none of it was. Instead, people came and built cities from all over the world in places as remote as the Amazon River Valley and they were quite intelligent. Global trade is not a recent thing, but likely goes back to the last Ice Age—maybe before. And we are just now starting to see what has always been there, only we didn’t see it because we allowed institutions to define for us the world we lived in. For me, if you really want to understand science, the answers are in the Wiki movement. Not from the institutions of our traditions, but in the open asking of questions and the answers whatever they may be. And one of the most shocking of those answers is that there were an advanced people in South American thousands of years before we had previously thought, and that is a very exciting discovery.

“Lock Her Up”: Why Trump supporters will never be satisfied until Hillary Clinton is in jail

It’s amazing how intuitive the American people are, voters free of institutional imprint to decipher instincts that guide them to the truth through the smoke screens of civility. Watching these rallies that Donald Trump does, such as this one prior to Labor Day weekend in Indiana, where the audience chants, “lock her up,” it is actually astonishing how accurate people were when given a platform to speak from, such as one of those rallies even though at the time that it all started, the concept of locking her up seemed like a remote necessity. They didn’t know several years ago when these rallies began just how deeply corrupt Hillary Clinton and the DNC really were, or to the extent that the FBI tampered with the election process to help the Democrats do better, but all along the crowds at the Trump rallies knew by instinct that there was enough of something bad happening to justify locking up the person who wanted desperately to be the first woman president, so much so that she was willing to break many laws to fulfil that fantasy. People really weren’t fooled from the beginning, which is why Trump’s poll numbers have never changed for the worse.

It’s important to understand that people really can smell a rat and they aren’t so easily conned. By observation its obvious that they can’t be manipulated by the kind of lies that the FBI fostered even though on an individual basis they are quite forgiving. But you put them into a crowded room and give them a chance to express themselves and they understand the level of criminality that was always at play, even though at the time it might only have been considered political rhetoric. With the new evidence that is coming in day by day just how entangled the manipulators of the DNC and FBI were with each other, it’s not just Hillary Clinton who should be going to jail, but it’s a large number of people, many of whom were considered squeaky clean prior to the election of 2016. From the perspective of bringing honesty back to Capital Hill, the Trump presidency has certainly rooted out the villains who were always hiding in plain sight.

The fact that disgraced Justice Department official Bruce Ohr was keeping Andrew Weissmann “in the loop” on the now famous dossier and had contact in 2016 with Weissmann, who is now a top Robert Mueller Deputy, should be enough to effectively end Mueller’s special counsel. These villains were hard at work at framing Donald Trump and electing Hillary Clinton to the presidency no matter what laws had to be broken and slowly over the months have been exposed in such embarrassing ways. When people say that the Mueller investigation should be ended, they aren’t just saying it to protect Donald Trump from possibly implicating himself, it’s because the bad guys in this situation must have the Mueller investigation to keep themselves out of trouble. Once the Mueller investigation ends and the offense is no longer in their favor, there are a lot of people in big trouble.

Yet it didn’t take the news to instruct people how they felt about Hillary Clinton. She obviously knew that the FBI was working on her behalf and was given assurances from Loretta Lynch and Barack Obama themselves that the full power of the state would be put behind her victory. During the final months of the campaign that is the reason that everyone sort of laughed off Donald Trump, as if to tell him,

don’t you know you don’t have a chance in hell of winning?” That’s when these chants started at these rallies, because Trump was their vehicle for getting at the real truth. If Trump had been a typical Republican candidate they wouldn’t have felt they could express themselves in such a way. But Trump let them speak in ways that nobody had previously, and they projected an ability to decipher bull shit from the truth quite effectively. It should all give us an understanding of just how powerful a republic style government truly is, if it’s allowed to function properly.

There is no way that the world goes back to the way it was prior to the 2016 election where the FBI operates as a corrupt umpire and calls strikes on their political enemies and balls even when the pitches are delivered precisely at the same location to their friends. What we have observed is the greatest example of scandal that any first world power has ever observed, and it’s on a massive scale, much larger than previously even considered. Hillary Clinton should certainly be in jail, just for the principle of it. Not only did the DNC rig the election on her behalf against Bernie Sanders, but they had the presidency all locked up as well with the assurances by the FBI that they had everything in the bag for her. The hatred of Trump by these people is like a burglar hating a home for having a security alarm. Trump being a political outsider screwed up everything for these villains. They thought they had everything set, and they did for some other Republican candidate. But Trump ignited in the common everyday people a voice they had been long suppressed, and that voice spoke on election night and destroyed all the elaborate plans that had been orchestrated to the contrary. The villains in this case, especially those working in the FBI should have watched more episodes of Scooby Doo when they were kids. Maybe they could have avoided all this if not for those pesky Trump supporters.

There is only one way to fix it, and that is not only for Hillary Clinton to be locked up, but for her conspirators as well. The crimes here are far more serious than Martha Stewart, or Paul Manafort, these crimes committed by the FBI and Obama White House and covered up directly by the special investigation of Robert Mueller are attacks at the essential elements of our republic. Only the people knew all along. They understood what was happening and to fix it they elected Donald Trump. And because of the pressure of having someone from outside the system in the White House, so many crimes are being uncovered, and CNN along with so many others in the media have been caught directly, and it has been embarrassing. But we have to follow the facts where they take us, and unfortunately the situation is every bit as bad as the most vocal conspiracy theorist had previously articulated.

Not that I am a frequent Alex Jones listener, but when he was attacked by Facebook and YouTube it made me want to listen to him more because he obviously is pissing off the right people. Thinking back on it he was right from the very beginning. The things he said about the inner workings of the Deep State may have sounded kooky at first but the facts have fleshed out that he had his hand on the truth from the start. But so did most people. All they really need is a voice to communicate their thoughts through, and it is quite amazing that normal people are able to see through all the smoke so clearly. People don’t need a government that tells them what they see and hear, people can do that for themselves. They need a government that listens to them and functions from that instruction and nothing more. They certainly don’t need a king or a lord to rule over them, which was the promise of Hillary Clinton and her conspirators. And they got caught doing that very thing and now its time to pay the price and of course they are unhappy about it. But if you do the crime, you have to be willing to do the time that comes with it, and obviously that is not the case. It can now be said quite clearly that the Robert Mueller investigation has had only one purpose, and it wasn’t to discover some truth about Donald Trump, it was to keep all the puppets from going to jail for their crimes in tampering with an American election. The average people knew all along, and they still chant the necessity for people to be locked up for their role in the whole deal. But the edges are closing in on the villains finally and the world will never be the same again in the aftermath. And to that we can all be happy that at least justice has a chance because Donald Trump is in the Executive Branch and not some hack who would be all too willing to play along against the wishes of the American Republic.

The Jacksonville Killer David Katz: Gun control is impossible in this modern age of self production

One of the reasons I have been so interested in Cody Wilson’s quest to print 3D guns and build firearms from the comfort of our own homes is that his approach does great work for the Second Amendment that not even the NRA is daring to pursue. Wilson is actually making a successful argument for the expansion of the Second Amendment as opposed to just trying to stave off incursions against it, as the NRA and most members of congress are relegated to do. Every time there is a mass shooting, such as the one on Sunday at a Madden video game tournament at the Jacksonville Landing in Florida the very first thing that politicians and anti-gun activists did is beg for more gun control. Yet that is never the real answer to the problem of mass shootings—or shootings of any kind. It is only the state’s desire as an institutional element to squelch threats to its existence and it uses every tragedy to propel its argument. So, when the 24-year-old kid David Katz got angry that he lost in the Madden tournament which was taking place that Sunday afternoon he went to his car and grabbed guns to shoot up the people who beat him. The result was 3 people were killed and 11 wounded. Katz killed himself once he had instigated the carnage.

Of course the swell of gun control advocates piled on, but in this shooting, even more so than those in the past, the cries for change were bouncing off hollow walls. Gun control would not solve this problem, the conditions that brought Katz to shoot a bunch of innocent people is much more systemic. He was apparently in turmoil over his divorced parents, like a lot of young people are these days because marriage and family life are not stable for the growth of children as they have been in the past. Intact family development is crucial to the proper mental health of children—one could argue successfully that it is the primary reason to get married in the first place—to properly create children in society.

Additionally, the video game culture is now one of the biggest entertainment platforms in the world, they outsell movies and regular sports events now. That raises the stakes for people like Katz who had won the Madden tournament in the previous year to use that activity as his calling card for peer respect. But even going further, the kid was an anti-Trumper in a political climate that saw great Trump successes and all that was fed by the anti-Trump media, so there are lots of complicit elements that prevented Katz from behaving in a rational way.

For Katz, if it wasn’t guns it would have been a car, a knife or a baseball bat. Clearly, he had mental health problems yet the institutions that were supposed to be doing their jobs on him failed and the kid was a menace to himself and those around him. So the question has been brought up concerning gun control, should the state be able to control his access to firearms because he has a history of mental illness and social instability? Then who is going to decide whether or not Katz is socially stable enough to have a firearm? The same FBI that allowed Bruce Ohr and his wife to create fake documents to fudge up a FISA warrant to spy on the President of the United States—so to dig up dirt on him to get him thrown out of office on impeachment and leaked information to the press to psychologically destroy him. Or a CIA that sends guns to enemies in many countries to topple governments? Deciding who is right and wrong is a matter of perspective on which state-run power is holding more assets, but that does nothing to resolve the matter of individual rights. And that is what the Bill of Rights was all about, particularly the First and Second Amendments.

That is why the Second Amendment needs to be expanded, not weakened, even to issues of common sense such as mental illness, because the state control really isn’t qualified to determine such things. They are not capable, as David Katz is a prime example. Now that guns are invented, even if they are illegal, Katz could always get his hands on them. Someone out there in the world is going to make them in some market and we cannot allow villains to have them and good guys not to. As much as gun control advocates hate the idea of a “wild, wild, west” world where everyone is armed and can kill a bad guy quickly, that is the only way to view the world of today where decentralization of ideas is the cornerstone of our present existence. The very nature of the Madden tournament there at the shopping center in Jacksonville is the evidence of a new world not controlled by the state, and people must adapt to that world. The more centralized the controls are, the more vulnerable the people are who are now operating in a decentralized world, where we order most of our consumer goods on websites like Amazon and get our entertainment on Netflix. Video games have taken the place of actual sports because they are more inclusive, and more immediate than traditional games in the backyards of our homes. And with the divorce rate up, families destroyed, and personal phones giving people more individualized options than ever before, the concept of a centralized state controlling even guns is ridiculous.

While its true that all this technology gives the state more power of surveillance than ever before, that information is useless to that power because the state is too centralized and cannot move fast enough to protect people from threats. It can only clean up the mess afterwards. There were plenty of messages provided by David Katz to attract the attention of the FBI, but what would they do to stop such carnage? Nothing. They could only file a report later and use that information to fuel the anti-gun crowd because at least the deaths might give more power to the state for which the FBI serves. The best way to deal with loose cannons like David Katz was to just shoot him right at the point of the threat. Some of the fellow video gamers at the tournament should have been armed, but the Chicago Pizza restaurant where the tournament was held was a gun free zone. It shouldn’t have been. There should have been many people there armed, not just the killer.

Even at this point if all the guns in the world were confiscated, and possessing guns or gun plans were illegal, there would be massive noncompliance. It would be worse than all the drug laws we have, where compliance never stopped anybody from smoking pot or using cocaine. The drugs came illegally, just like illegal immigration have also come. More gun laws will never stop guns. It will just destroy American jobs. The guns will be made in people’s personal machine shops and from other countries as part of a black market that nobody has any control over, and that is the only path that more gun control will take us on. That is the essential message of Cody Wilson. That now technology has been introduced to our society and that it cannot be reversed. The state forces can seek to eliminate and even rewrite history to keep that information from the minds of people, but with the quick rise of information and the public hunger for it, whether it is in the form of video games, weapons or grocery delivery there is no way to stop what has been unleashed without destroying society itself, which the state has been unwilling to do. The presidency of Donald Trump is an aspect of that new technology, without it, and Wikileaks he likely wouldn’t have ever come close to winning the office of the President. That same technology makes gun control impossible so why even entertain the idea and delay a real solution. The way to stop the crazy loser David Katz was to shoot him dead right there on the spot with Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law. The two impediments to that were the nature of the youth themselves which has not been taught the value of gun ownership from either their parents or their institutions. The other was that the restaurant that the Madden tournament was being held in was a gun free zone. Those two things need to change to truly make events like that one safe. More gun control is not only unrealistic, it runs counter to the very nature of progress itself—and that Genie at this point isn’t going back into the bottle.
