Guns in the Ohio Constitution

We have been hearing and seeing so much about what the Democrats want for America, from open border policies, to high taxation, murderous abortions, and abuses of the standing armies to raid private citizens in the middle of the night and throw them in jail just over political maneuverings, an obvious abuse of authority. I’ve always been a bit of a Constitutional hound, I trust mostly the decisions of the Supreme Court at the federal level, even when they don’t go my way. When I don’t like the direction of the country for instance, instead of taking up guns and overthrowing the government, like we are expected to do when things get out of control, I settle on elections. That’s why I supported Donald Trump for president, he was a needed change done in the most peaceful manner. However, after the arrest of Roger Stone, Trump’s first campaign manager into the 2016 elections and the obvious bad treatment of other people directly connected to President Trump by the FBI I have been going back and rereading the Constitutions that have founded our nation and thinking differently about what to do next. It started for me by asking what I would do if the FBI or local police were instigated to come to my door to arrest me, how would I handle it. That answer provoked me to revisit the law and consider the correct options.

But too often we assume that the federal government has supremacy law over the states, which we know from the Tenth Amendment that it doesn’t which means that the Constitutions of whatever state you live in are important considerations as well, and I can say that the Ohio Constitution is not an easy thing to put your civilian hands on, which it should be. Anyway, I picked one up and for current reading. A previous copy I had from something like thirty years ago was missing so a new one was needed and once it arrived, I found a modern reading of it to be quite refreshing. Assuming that I have to say I know a few Ohio Supreme Court Justices, not well enough that we swap spit in the shower, but well enough to call them neighbors whom I speak with from time to time so I understand the nature of case-law which has been shaped by the Ohio Constitution over time, but what I want to focus on are a few very nice quotes listed in the Preamble of the Article I: Bill of Rights, which read very similarly to the federal Bill of Rights inspired by the Anti-Federalist Papers.

Specifically, I found the language of #2 of the Ohio Bill of Rights to be much more specific than the federal Second Amendment which we all hear so much about. It makes it quite clear what the intention of a society of gun owners is supposed to be doing and why they have the power to do it. There is no mistake about it, it says: Right to alter, reform, or abolish government, and repeal special privileges. All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter, reform, or abolish the same, whenever they may deem it necessary: and no special privileges or immunities shall ever be granted, that may not be altered, revoked, or repealed by the General Assembly. Essentially, if the government of Ohio gets too far out of control, everyday people need to be able to abolish it and start over. Things that come to my mind as causes for such a thing to happen would be massive debt and abuses of authority. Lucky for all of us living in Ohio, it’s a pretty well-run state, but part of the reason why is that there are a lot of gun owners who don’t have much tolerance for nonsense. We are not obligated to just deal with a bunch of spoiled brat government employees. If they screw up and over extend themselves, we have an obligation to end that government and start a new one.

Another part of the Ohio Bill of Rights that jumped out at me was #4 Bearing arms; standing armies: military power. The people have the right to bear arms for their defense and security; by standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, and shall not be kept up; and the military shall be in strict subordination to the civil power. Now this was written in 1851, not that long ago. And when reading it I can’t help but think of the Roger Stone case and the corruption we have seen at the level of the FBI under James Comey and Andrew McCabe. Granted, these actions were not in Ohio, Stone was arrested in Florida and the core of the FBI characters were likely regulated by other constitutional parameters not specific to Ohio, but the intent behind the language could not be clearer. A standing army in times of peace tends to breed corruption, when a police state is established where they represent the arm of a corrupt government and they have power over people who don’t, bad things tend to happen, and we see it all the time. I find this portion of the Ohio Bill of Rights to be particularly potent in establishing legal precedent. Government even at the level of the Supreme Court of the state or at the federal level cannot trump this basic premise with case-law assumptions. Because if we have to abolish the government for whatever reason the grounds for doing so revert back to this basic foundation of law in Ohio for which we all agree is the law of the land.

Maybe this is why the Ohio Constitution isn’t more publicized. I’m sure I read these things before, but in the context of our modern times they are much more distinct than their federal brother. Later during the progressive era of 1912 there were amendments to the Ohio Constitution which complicate things a bit, but essentially the 1851 version is the law of the land, so why don’t more people know this stuff? It should be more broadly broadcast not just through the state of Ohio, but in other states trying to understand the foundations of their own government. I mean without question the State of Ohio evokes the privileges of eminent domain and public welfare rights in regard to private property as written in the 1851 Ohio Constitution, so why not apply the same to the #2 and #4 section of the Preamble where gun rights are the obvious emphasis? The obvious answer of course is that much of the Constitutions that make our country what it is at both the federal level and the level of the state are interpreted by government employees for the benefit of themselves. But behind it all is the expectation that the people for whom the constitutions are written are expected to enforce justice when needed, and in these modern times, it looks like its needed. There are worse things than violence in a society, and that is a civilization that is just asleep at the wheel and has lost itself to the powers of government reverting back to an aristocratic existence. It is far more dangerous to become an overly compliant society that has lost its freedoms than to take up arms to remove corruption from office. Just a few things to think about as we learn more about how our government really operates and what little respect they have for our current president or the people who put him in office.

A Dangerous and Ominous Case

The Jussie Smollett case tells us everything we need to know about the FBI and the Andrew McCabe situation where a tendency to lie and fabricate a story without a grain of truth in it is possible and could be accepted at face value. I have said many times that the FBI coup against the incoming President Trump is the worst political disaster in American history and would rank as relevant anywhere in the world so far as corruption and high crimes. But the problem with it is people have a hard time believing people could possibly be so vile and evil, especially when they act like James Comey, as an honest Boy Scout. We live in an entertainment culture where we get our inputs of the world from actors and news anchors, so given the typically lazy nature of the average person, they want to believe what Comey and McCabe were saying about their involvement in overthrowing an American president even before he could even take the oath of office.

Jussie Smollett was riding high on the hit show “Empire.” He literally had the world eating out of his hand, so he had no real reason to become a political activist hiring two fellow actors to stage an attack against him outside his Chicago apartment supposedly yelling “This is MAGA” country while they poured bleach on him and threatened to hang him lynching style. As it turned out he made the whole thing up, but not before going on major news outlets such as Disney owned ABC to give interviews in an attempt to build a case against the Trump presidency by suggesting that it was the MAGA hats that were inspiring violence all across the country and needed to be stopped. It looked phony at the time, but over time it was proven to be a complete hoax giving an insight into just how radical and desperate the political left is. If Jussie Smollett would do such a thing with no real political motivation other than trying to get Democrats fired up against President Trump, then what would the FBI do to cover their own tracks of actual crimes committed in trying to put their favor behind Hillary Clinton over President Trump? The answer is pretty ominous and should be a lesson to us all.

We have to consider how a young kid like Jussie Smollett working successfully in the Hollywood culture could have even put together in his mind that doing such a thing was acceptable, or even needed. He had to know the risks, yet he did it anyway. What does that say about the mentality of the people he works with every day, who he thought would be impressed with his antics? Even when things were turning south on him, it took the media a long time to admit that they had jumped the gun on him and should have kept their mouths shut. But in the scheme of things Jussie Smollett is small potatoes, certainly not a national emergency, but an indicator to what extent a person will lie to support their industry held political beliefs.

However, lets take what we know about Hollywood, the media, and people like Jussie Smollett and apply them to the culture of Washington D.C. which is much more motivated to push out challenges to their way of doing things and would even go to breaking the law to protect themselves. Is it so far-fetched to believe that James Comey, Robert Muller and Andrew McCabe would go much further in lying about things to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump? Obviously not because Andrew McCabe was caught doing it. He was on 60 Minutes this past week trying to put a happy face on the crime of the century, but the essence of what he did was attempt an overthrow of a newly American President by making up a complete fiction about him to justify the action. Anybody could say a person was colluding with Russia for instance and force them to defend themselves in a court of law, especially when the accusers control the law as enforcement officers and policy makers.

If we have learned anything from the Smollett case, which isn’t the first time in human history to be sure, but these days with social media serving as a checks and balance against the liberalized media, we have more evidence than ever that these things go on, routinely. We should then figure that Watergate wasn’t the first time a political party tried to get an advantage over another party through some nefarious means. Then it should not come as a surprise that behind the scenes for many years, a deep state of insurgents who have always thought they knew better than the rest of us have functioned from the shadows to overthrow threats to their existence. And what they tried to do in the modern era with President Trump was an ostentatious display of arrogance and criminal conduct. They tried to overthrow the President the same way the CIA might try to instill some dictator in a foreign land to provoke a regime change. Only this happened within our borders, and against American law with great disrespect and arrogance.

At the very least all those involved in this FBI mess should go to jail. They should be prosecuted to such an extent that nobody would ever try such a thing again. It’s not OK to lie about things to shape public opinion and certainly not to overthrow election results. In the case of election tampering it was the smellers who were the fellers, the FBI was caught manipulating an election in the favor of Democrats. The lie was obvious. It is just as much of a lie as the liberal actor Jussie Smollett attempting to invoke a race war to create public sentiment for his side by forcing MAGA supporters to defend a negative that never happened. Maybe the kid should have watched Scooby Doo more as a child because he should have known that once he went on ABC and started running his mouth that people were going to check out his story, and he’d be exposed. But the FBI was so audacious that they thought they could control the story and that even if they were caught, nobody would have the guts to come after them. Which is how McCabe found himself to be in the situation he is in presently. He’s trying to make a martyr of himself, to sound like the lone rebel standing up for the corruption of an election by people who didn’t know as much as he did. But how is that any different from a typical terrorist who thinks that only they understand the way the world should be and are equipped to protect that vision even from people who aren’t as smart as they are. Andrew McCabe made himself into every Bond villain in movie history, the only guy in the world who knew the right thing to do and took it upon himself to take action against the rest of society. Only in this circumstance, it wasn’t just McCabe, but the culture of the FBI itself. And that is why this is such a dangerous, and ominous case.

The Neccessity of Gun Ownership

The problem with all progressives in government and in society in general is that they are functioning from a false assumption, that history is a linier exercise that progresses day by day, week by week, and year by year from one accomplishment to another for all recorded history. They believe that once a society learns something that it has it forever and that all ideas and concepts progress off one another toward a more enlightened understanding of the world. They are wrong, what in fact does happen is that the human race is continuously climbing and falling and relearning things it long ago forgot and that the reality of progress and understanding is that gunpowder essentially broke the Vico Cycle for which we all followed for many thousands of years and from that invention of a new philosophy took root and America that was born as an opportunity to truly change the course of history. This gave way to the idea of self-rule and the American Constitution which in our present time is a deeply philosophic work that would have never emerged if not for the personal ownership of guns to protect it. That makes Nancy Pelosi’s reaction to President Trump’s national emergency declaration to secure funding for a border wall along the southern states touching Mexico a serious blunder driven from a lack of understanding about the nature of reality. A national emergency declared by some future Democrat inspiring any restriction to the Second Amendment is not comparable to what President Trump did and will not be allowed under Constitutional consideration.

There are a couple of facts that must be addressed in relation to Nancy Pelosi’s progressive position and the general attitude of her insurgents in the current congress, that likely some member of the Trump family or the current cabinet will continue to be president of the United States well into the future, well past President Trump’s eight terms. I don’t see people turning away from the prospects of a good economy to hurt themselves with the progressive notions of social justice wealth redistribution. The American presidency has changed forever under the Trump White House and I just don’t see any Democrats or Republicans understanding at this point what happened. In some cases it will take them decades to figure it out and by then there will be several Trump spawns who will inhabit the White House and will continue the work that has been started, in Making America Great Again. The second aspect of Nancy’s meanderings is that it is the Second Amendment that essentially holds together the concept of law and order created by the American Constitution. It is rather funny that Democrats spend so much time with their counter-culture fantasies of breaking and even ignoring laws then they think that if they were in power, that people would automatically follow their laws. Sorry folks, it doesn’t work that way. If Nancy’s clan ever managed to put restrictions on the Second Amendment those laws would be ignored because they are not based on Constitutional principles and would be therefor worthless.

Part of the beauty of gun ownership is that it is directly responsible for a period of law and order in the United States that has been very successful and allowed a culture to flourish under the natural autonomy of its citizens. The stability of the law under the American Constitution is unique in the world and is largely responsible for the success of our economy over a long period of time. It wasn’t that long ago that Japan was an enemy of the United States functioning under a tyrannical emperor, or the Soviet Union was openly communist, Iran was free and taken over by communism as was Cuba. France was actually a territory of the conquerors in Germany. How many times have the countries of Europe, Asia and Africa been invaded and reinvented by rival factions always changing the nature of their law and order? Even in South Africa consider the changes to their society under the communist Nelson Mandela. Most places in the world have been around for a long time as societies, but they have not had stable governments to carry from one generation to the next ideas and understandings built on philosophy that lasted well into the future essentially because their people could not protect their laws and order from invaders, either from outside their countries or from within. That is not the case in America. With more guns than people it is impossible for some insurgent to take over mass population centers in America and to therefor eradicate Constitutional concepts from the minds of our population.

Losing gun rights in America just isn’t permissible under any conditions because it is the fundamentals of gun ownership which preserves the nature and intent of the American Constitution. Gun ownership is one of the most wonderful aspects of our culture because it has allowed the philosophy of good law to provide rights to individuals in ways that has never occurred before in history and allowed for a true break from the grasp of the Vico Cycle. So gun confiscation is simply not an option under some future Democrat president or any other political attempt to remove them from the general population. Without gun ownership there is no law. So giving them up will never happen. If such a proposal were actually made, breaking that law would become quite fashionable and if troops were sent home to home to grab them, there would be open gun battles to stop the incursion. Guns trump laws of a progressive nature because the foundation document of the original Constitution understood the need for the protection of individual liberty.

When gun laws are proposed what is being asked or demanded is an expansion of federal powers over the natures of individual citizens, which is a loss of legal concept which protects the very idea of American laws. The way many police react to CCW holders or homeowners known to have many guns on their property is completely beyond the scope of their business and in violation of the nature of American law, hedging dangerously close to a police state mentality where government has more power than individuals. The nature of the American Constitution is to limit the powers of government and when Nancy’s gang of lunatics propose even offhanded the idea of Second Amendment restrictions, they are championing efforts at federal expansion of rights over the rights of individuals citizens which is not a permissible concept.

Guns and their ownership have been proposed by power grabbers as being part of a backwards way of thinking by the uneducated and stupid. The way that Democrats speak about gun shows and NRA supporters is actually quite an insult. The truth is quite the opposite, gun ownership is part of a sophisticated concept of modern legal understanding and enforcement and is directly linked to the wealth of our nation. Without gun ownership it is unlikely that the American Constitution would have lasted for 50 years let alone more than 200. And it is also unlikely that America would be as wealthy as it is, because wealth is a creation of individual free people, not the nations themselves. And that is not a negotiable position, no nation is permitted to make laws that power themselves, so therefore no national emergency will ever supersede the need for gun ownership and the philosophic advancement that they provide to a society of individuals.

When Fighting Law Enforcement Becomes Neccessary

No matter how you slice it, Andrew McCabe is a dirty rotten scum bag as one of the top insurgents within the F.B.I. who attempted to overthrow the election of President Trump by participating in the 25th Amendment discussion to put a Constitutional end to the new presidency. I think it is also astonishingly arrogant that he admitted this detail in a new tell all book which further demonstrates the level of arrogance that we were all dealing with top officials in the intelligence community. I am proud to say that I was one of the first people in the country to call out McCabe as such a menace well before the F.B.I. found itself in the middle of a political insurrection that it joined completely on their own. And knowing that, I can say with certainty that I am willing to use the First and Second Amendment to stop them from removing my president. That’s where I am these days and why many of my discussions in these essays are leaning more toward legal arguments than just buoyant opinion. After the obvious harassment of Roger Stone and many others, I made the decision that my situation would be different and I’m explaining the legal argument ahead of time, before losers like McCabe stop the information flow as a law enforcement weapon to destroy individual liberty under tenuous conditions.

Sure Andy McCabe was fired from the F.B.I. But how many like him are still there? I am not willing to say as Sean Hannity has that people like this are unique and that all the F.B.I. agents and officers of the D.O.J. are any different. I would say that McCabe represents the general opinion of such people and that most government employees are a potential menace by the nature of their positions and culture for which they evolve. I think we know plenty about how the F.B.I. operated during the opening months of the Trump presidency, we know more about the behavior of their antics than we do about things we’ve studied for a long time, such as the moon and Mars. The evidence that we have by way of text messages just from Lisa Page and Peter Strzok tell us all we need to know, and they were working directly for Andy McCabe and James Comey. These people were tyrants who thought they knew better than we did about who and what should be in the White House and they actively plotted to remove him from office—against the wishes of those who put him there.

I feel quite justified to speak openly about using violence against these people to preserve our Constitutional Republic going forward, because for one, its our obligation as citizens of the United States and two it’s the right thing to do when abuses of power are obvious. As I write this President Trump is working out the details to declare a national emergency to build the border wall shielding America from Mexican crime elements and Nancy Pelosi wasn’t happy about it. She stated that when a Democrat was president in the future then Trump was opening up the possibility to confiscate guns as a “national emergency.” See, that’s how these people think and if such a time does come to pass, that’s when there will be blood in the streets, because I can just say from my perspective, that ain’t happenin.’ The McCabes and Pelosis of the world can be viewed only one way by our own Constitution, as domestic enemies and we are obliged to encounter them and destroy them to preserve our way of life as Americans.

Electing President Trump was part of that Constitutional path to remove such people from the public domain and so far, it has worked. President Trump has done a great job as president. He has certainly done what I wanted him to do. But the arrogance of people like McCabe assumes that he knows more than me as a voter and that he felt perfectly justified to take action against me to remove my president from office by any means available to him and the F.B.I. That’s where this whole thing goes off the rails because the government has never been in charge. I’m in charge of my own life and so are you dear reader. And if Trump has not been so willing to stand in the pocket and take such a beating, I would contend that there would already be a bloody civil war going on right now. Nancy and her domestic enemies won’t be taking any guns under a national emergency. A fight much bigger than anything they can image will happen at that point and things will be very messy. I have said it many times, they are very lucky that Trump was elected president because in many ways it saved them from themselves. I remember the Election of 2016 very well and what I was willing then to do. With Trump becoming president it restored in me some sense of legal means to get the country back on track. But I am keenly aware that there are a lot of people like Andy McCabe functioning in government right now, and likely the only language they will ever listen to is force, and I am ready to go there if need be.

Considering all that think now of the Robert Mueller investigation and all the people who have suffered around the President directly, like General Flynn, and Paul Manafort who is currently sitting in jail just because he was a campaign manager for Trump. Sure, he broke some laws in other endeavors which were looked into because of his relationship to Trump, and that’s why he’s in jail but if he had not been involved with Trump he would be a free man to this day. He’s cleaner legally than McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Clinton, Comey and many others. And the entire investigation which cost many millions of dollars and destroyed so many lives supposedly for national security was all for nothing, essentially to fulfil an original strategy by McCabe and his associates to overthrow an American president with the 25th Amendment by running him out of office under legal pressure. Just that last sentence should send shock waves through every American. If they would try such a thing with Trump, they’d do it to any of us. So why go peacefully when they come to your door with guns pulled at 5 AM in the morning? Why not just engage them as hostiles right then and there because we’ve seen what they are willing to do, even to an elected office holder of the Executive Branch.

I am personally happy to see the Constitution working, and am glad that so far such fighting has not been needed. The system is working. But it’s the intent that concerns me and why I am more than ever looking toward the Constitution and the Founding Documents as my bases for interacting with such criminal conduct among what should be trusted public employees who are obviously corrupted beyond repair. But it would not surprise me before its all said and done that actual violence may be needed to preserve our nation and that is coming from the same mind that knew Andy McCabe was dirty well before the media caught on with all these self-admissions. I hope not, but it would not surprise me in the least.

Gunfighters, Poker Players, and the Great American Constitution

I personally use the western expansion period of American history as a reference to something of a miracle. While the enemy in America, those trying to change the very nature of the Constitution seek to re-write history with progressive sentiments, I see the situation of the great journey into the West by Americans after the Civil War as something of a miracle and I carry around symbols of that age with me every day everywhere I go. The more I have practiced Cowboy Fast Draw with my Ruger Vaquero the more obvious the miracles of America’s west have become to me. Recently a good friend of mine who returned from Vegas brought with him some literal Trump playing cards that he found in his hotel gift shop. Even though they are only playing cards I thought they were some of the most beautiful items I have seen in a while. They are gold covered of course and have Trump’s face on a $100-dollar bill on the back. I think they are fabulous as I do love the game of poker because it is a game structured under the premise of American capitalism. I can’t carry my guns around with me everywhere, even though I think I should. I do wear a cowboy hat often and usually have playing cards and poker chips in my pocket at all times to remind me of just how special the American West was and what role it still plays to this day in the political landscape. Poker was the game of gunfighters and it was the American gunfighters who broke the back of the Vico Cycle in the context of world history and presented us with options today that I would argue are the first in human history.

History and its understanding is more than a hobby for me. I know quite a lot about it, and I would say that up until the Renaissance Period mankind likely for tens of thousands of years if not hundreds of thousands of years rose and fell along the lines of what is known as the Vico Cycle which essentially means all societies rise along a known trajectory of habit, starting with theocracy, then aristocracy, then democracy, anarchy, only to start again. When archaeologists really get into the weeds of why societies fail and great cities suddenly empty and their inhabitants disappear, it is due to this condition everywhere in the world for all recorded history and likely into history we are not even aware of because the rate of decay and erosion prevent our study that far back. During the Dark Ages of Europe, just another period of time when theocracy ruled the minds of mankind, the Renaissance was born and enlightened minds started asking hard questions that took a few centuries to work out, but eventually the Scottish Rites started contemplating what would eventually become the United States. They’d have to leave Europe to try the experiment of self-ruled people but once they did, there was a revolution and born from that the American Constitution. In the context of historical documents, starting with the Magna Carta in England and merging into what we now call the American Constitution I think are some of the greatest concepts of philosophy so far created as a species of thinking creatures.

The Constitution made many freedoms possible for minorities, for women and for all the immigrants migrating into the New World. It produced great wealth which changed the nature of global politics within a hundred years and I would argue broke the Vico Cycle of world history. There was always some Hitler type that came along and cast the world back into theocracy after anarchy but this time it was the West that saved the world from a tyrant and history was changed. Of course, the enemies of the American Constitution recognize that and have learned not to try to fight free people directly. So they are seeking to undermine the power of America by eroding away at the philosophy which created it which describes accurately our present circumstances. However, it was the American cowboy, gunslinger, card player and gold digger who effectively destroyed the Vico Cycle and put us on the precipice of leaving earth to colonize other planets, such as Mars in such a short period of time because due to the Constitution, the autonomous actions of mankind were unleashed and thus a new age was born.

I would contend that the American Indian was not “native” or “indigenous” but were in fact migrants from previous failed societies, some from the Maya, some from the Aztec, some from cultures that came and went which have never been recorded before, but all had a try at the Vico Cycle and failed reverting back to tribal theocracies dancing like idiots just to make it rain under storm clouds dressed as birds and other animals. They were not functioning under the premise of an American Constitution representing free people so the Indians were run over by a conflict of clashing philosophies, one successful and one not. One culture had science, one culture had superstitions and theocratic limitations similar to the Dark Ages of Europe. As the Indians were pushed off their lands and towns were built on the emerging American frontier brothels, casinos and criminal elements emerged and were only regulated by the gun which to an outsider looked like chaos and the worst of mankind. Modern day Las Vegas is very much the same representation, the best and worst that mankind has to offer is on full display. But the judgment of scum and villainy is only a transitory one, it is the unleashed human mind that benefited most, the opportunity to make money free of aristocracy and to personal profit from the work one applied, even if it was a diseased whore working in a gold rush town’s saloon. Or the gambler working a poker table trying to get rich off the ignorance of his associates, a new way of thinking emerged and the perils of the Vico Cycle were effectively ended on the Western frontier backed by a philosophic experiment of the American Constitution.

So yeah, the gold cards with President Trump on them from Vegas were special to me because they represent a change in thought that was new to mankind. When we talk about the age of MAGA, (Make America Great Again) this is what we are talking about, a Constitution that created great autonomy among people who unleashed thriving new opportunities which quickly became huge cities, railroads that crawled across the nation and an unrivaled international economy all within a few hundred years. The enemy of the Constitution of course are jealous and they want to erode away all the value that this fine history has produced, and they want to focus on the slavery, the conflict with the Indians, the conflict with the Spanish who had conquered Mexico and even the fights with Europe to forge the new Constitution. Of course they’d love to erase all the great gains made and get back to the Vico Cycle because it’s all they know and they lack the courage to be free themselves so they look to the Indian and the Eastern mystic for guidance, to surrender thought to the gods of superstition, which likely ruled the minds of the weak for hundreds of thousands of years. But in America things changed, the Constitution brought forth the beginnings of an autonomous culture which didn’t look pretty at first, but through the gun smoke and the haze of bar room poker games came something new, and the greatest country on the face and history of planet earth emerged and it was a miracle worth fighting for. And that’s what I think of when I see a cool gold playing card from Vegas, the hopes and dreams of a civilization that just wanted to be free of the Vico Cycle, and for once it actually happened after a lot of work and thought.

Ocasio-Cortez and the Hollywood Change Agency

The enemy is certainly alive and well in Hollywood and I now know the origin of Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. I had some time over this past weekend to catch up on some movies I had been wanting to watch. One was the Watchmen which was finally on Netflix. It was a movie on my list for about 10 years so I finally had a chance to see it, so I did. I liked it quite a lot but the them of it is pretty sad, human beings are faulty creatures’ intent to destroy themselves without some kind of unifying intervention. I watched a few more films, uneventful liberal propaganda, but another Netflix production jumped out as relevant especially for the uneducated millennial generation that it was targeted for, a film called IO which is the name of a moon around Jupiter where the human race had fled to once the earth became uninhabitable due to climate change. The movie just hit Netflix so I could imagine that after watching it Ocasio-Cortez and her band of Constitutional changing villains used the points of that movie to outline their Green New Deal.

There were things worth watching in IO but the premise was all wrong, it assumes that the earth is a living being that decided one day to change the composition of the atmosphere to rid it of mankind’s presence so like a bunch of idiots we evacuated the planet except for a few stragglers to colonize other destinations in space. The earth was literally trying to kill off humans as if they were a disease, a common theme among most Hollywood writers for many years now. The same elements were present in Zach Snyder’s the Watchmen, humans are faulty, intent to destroy themselves and everything around them, etc. Only in IO it was odd because the writers wanted to portray all the good things humans had done regarding culture and in the end the main protagonist stayed on earth to repopulate it living in harmony with earth’s rules and supposedly everyone lived happily ever after. The assumption in both cases was that there was always something out there that knew better than the human race what to do. In the case of IO it was the earth. In the case of the Watchman, it was Dr. Manhattan, whom I found most relatable. I’d watch the Watchmen many more times just to see more of that character alone.

Clearly Hollywood has been weaponized, I’ve covered all this before and how it came to be. They are not making the movies that made Hollywood so great years ago where studios made really good American art, such as The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. The enemy has taken over and in all cases for which it controls they are using the very well-known Kotter’s Eight Steps for Transformation. These rules are well-known among intelligentsia, there is nothing new about them other than their exposure to the general public. I personally love John Kotter’s work; however, the enemy is clearly taking the next step from Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and is using the Eight Step for Transformation as outlined by Kotter in The Harvard Business Review to inspire politicians to become change agents instead of representatives in a great republic. The enemy has done what it sought to do, take over Hollywood, and the media in general and to weaponize sentiment so to create change, and that is the whole purpose of the climate change proposal.

When Ocasio-Cortez announced that there were only 12 years to live on earth unless we did something different like adopting her Green New Deal the enemy in general is establishing Kotter’s number one rule, to establish a sense of urgency. That is how change agents inspire people to follow them, whether or not the proposal is real, it is a tactic used to drive people toward action. Climate change and the deadlines set are nothing more than this. The earth doesn’t really care if humans are on its surface or not. The earth will be around long after humans have decided to leave just as it was around long before. The earth is indifferent to our existence just like other planets. Planets are not very wise, they aren’t writing great works of literature or contemplating the origin of the universe, they just sit in space reacting to the elements of existence. However, the enemy has to create the artificial sentiment that danger is imminent forcing humans to act against their best interests to save the earth from a phantom menace. But the operative word is “phantom.”

To accept that notion of climate change you have to accept the premise that humans are inheritably bad, which is what Hollywood has been trying to tell us about ourselves for the last thirty years. The Watchmen was a great movie but notice how people didn’t rush out to see it and don’t behold the characters in the same regard as opposed to someone like Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones is about the best that humans can be and it makes people feel good to watch a character like that. But most movie characters are about the worst that humans are which is trying to reinforce the need for change. The enemy needs the human race to see fault in themselves so that they will act politically to below the line motivations which are then rules by a larger centralized government managing those affairs, much the way the Church of Europe wanted to rule over monarchs calling themselves direct representatives to God himself. The modern equivalent is nothing more complicated, it’s an evil attempt to pull down the ambitions of the human race so that they will be inspired to act against their best interests and give power over to the centralized authority of dumb kids like Ocasio-Cortez and her band of climate change fanatics.

I wanted to watch the Watchmen because I had noticed that Zach Snyder seems to be officially now developing a movie version of The Fountainhead, which is one of my favorite novels in the history of novels. If anybody could do a real film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s work it would be Zach Snyder. Even though the Watchmen had elements of the enemy assumptions about the human race in it, Snyder likely went that way due to the source material, staying loyal to the original graphic novel. The Fountainhead will be a very controversial work that I think will be a rather dramatic answer to the change agency that Hollywood has become so in spite of all the elements we see today, I see big changes tomorrow. Not everyone is willing to serve the enemy’s wishes to turn the United States into a parasitic state of compliant losers worshiping at the alters of climate change by disregarding the best that humans can be, thinking creative beings. I honestly think we all maintain in us the good elements of Dr. Manhattan from the Watchmen and that our future is there, not in rising oceans and voodoo atmospheric anomalies. The earth is pretty dumb, and nature is as philosophically affluent as a rock. It exists and does what it does for basic survival, but nothing else. Whereas humans are trying always to become better and that makes them worth something in the context of universal history.

The Enemy

You have to understand that one of my good friends was just killed by a train in Texas. I’m still very twisted over the arrest of Roger Stone, the investigations of President Trump, and the obvious malice of the F.B.I. attempting to tilt the table in favor of Democrats during the 2016 election so regarding affairs of the “republic” I’m not in a very good mood. If it wasn’t so funny I would be even angrier over the proposed Green New Deal. I thought the old New Deal by FDR was one of the most destructive elements of a free thinking society and should have been eradicated long ago, yet here are political elements who want to go much further, so obviously its time to have a hard talk about when its time to have a real civil war again within the United States where violence is the only way to settle disputes, because the intellectual goals of the two sides are just too far apart. I think now is the time to do so, and I offer this article of opinion as a foundation for any legal issues that might take place later. Because personally speaking, I have reached my limit. I’m ready to defend the Constitution with force now, and that means that its time to define who the enemy is and understand why they are such. From now on I’m not going to rationalize how two sides can live together in debate as the republic was designed because the enemy as defined here doesn’t wish to have a discussion, or find truth in debate. They want to destroy us as Americans, and as men of family, and they don’t care who they have to hurt to get there which is why I now refer to them as “The Enemy.”

Many years ago when I first started this “blog” site I did so inspired by two of my favorite literary classics, The Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers which were collections of essays written for newspaper publication around the time of the Federal Convention to hash out the details of what an American Constitution should be and what it should do to not only hold the country together, but still maintain the spirit of the Revolution so that individual rights could be maintained. It didn’t matter if the Constitution had been written now or 2000 years ago, what occurred in the newly formed United States which at the time was only 13 states was a giant leap in human thought, the idea of self-rule when for the entire known history of civilization people where always ruled by someone no matter where in the world someone may have traveled. Such a concept was worth the bloodshed of a future Civil War, the eradication of the Indian Nations, or any countries that might have tried to stand in the way, because the effort itself was captured during the formation of The United States and gave rise to a world power unlike anything that had ever occurred in all of history. And the philosophical foundations of this effort were captured in the debates of the Constitutional Conventions expressed in The Federalist Papers and The Anti-Federalist Papers. I devoured both as the Tea Party movement emerged in late 2008 and 2009 and found that I was much more of an Anti-Federalist than a Federalist and that for the coming decade I would offer my thoughts on these pages for others to consider in much the same fashion.

It was obvious to me that our modern society had declined to the point where intelligent debate was necessary, so I did my part and I hoped to inspire enough people to seek wisdom from debate to avoid violence. In that regard the modern Tea Party movement was very successful, the revolution was fought as it should be, through education followed by good elections. On the conservative side of things we rooted out the modern versions of Benedict Arnold, politicians like John Boehner and John Kasich from my home state of Ohio and we replaced them with the Republican Party of Donald Trump, which was very peaceful, lawful, and have launched the country into an era of prosperity that is unequivocal in our young country and have forced the world to look at themselves and make peaceful adjustments just to mitigate the risk of becoming globally irrelevant. Taking the long view, the Tea Party movement in the United States from 2009 to 2015 is the way that revolutions should take place, and it is certainly a testament to the strength of the American philosophy that was formed in The Federalist Papers and The Anti-Federalist Papers.

Nothing ever devastates me, I’ve been through everything and seen the worst that people can offer under the worst conditions. So when I found out about the death of my friend Doc Thompson I wouldn’t say that it changed my life or sent me into some shell of sadness. I accept tragedy as part of life and simply moved on to the next thing which for me was an oversea call with some important people. Later that evening after a 20-hour work day was completed I sorted out my thoughts on the matter and decided to re-read for probably the 25th to 26th time in a ten-year period The Anti-Federalist Papers, which took me about 11 hours stopping to eat twice. Doc Thompson I saw was a person who really believed in the American ideas created by the Constitution. As an authentic person it led to his eventual death, not by conspiracy as he was hit by a train, but by the fact that the world of media for which he wanted to work had closed its doors to him and his boss Glenn Beck and they were on the short end of a world that was changing by what I will call the Enemy for the sake of literary distinction.

The Enemy wanted to change the nature of the American Constitution and since Doc was a purist, he was on the outside looking in always trying hard to find a way to get his voice out to speak in favor of Constitutional principles. Unlike his friend Glenn Beck who had made a lot of money in his early Tea Party years at Fox News and was living well off it, Doc had never hit a substantial sum of money and was the living embodiment of what the Founding Fathers would have went through had America not prevailed during the Revolution, English society would have castigated them out of existence. But what occurred to me was that Doc wasn’t supposed to have those effects, none of us were. We had the Constitution and these modern efforts by the Enemy were not supposed to have the impact to our legal and moral system that they were. As I closed the book to The Anti-Federalist Papers for the latest time I realized that violence was inevitable in order to protect The Constitution that was born from that philosophic text written during that critical period of American contemplation.

One thing that really makes me sad however is that when reading those works, The Anti-Federalist Papers and The Federalist Papers it is clear that as a society people are not as intelligent as they once were, our education system has failed, our civilization under guidance of the Enemy has had a destructive influence over our children and neighbors and it really is a tragedy that must be rectified. The Enemy therefore doesn’t just deserve a day in court, they need to be eradicated from existence because they have shown themselves to be a menace. The Enemy are those who want to change the Constitution of America from a document that protects individual liberty to a means of empowering a larger central government to distribute collective salvation even to those who don’t deserve it. Through the actions of the enemy it naturally weakens the strength of The United States as the best light the world has to yearn for and is therefore up to malice that is not forgivable by civil discourse. So from that perspective the Enemy must be destroyed and removed from the political theater and the future of this site will make that case hopefully before bullets start flying. But likely the bullets will be discharged before all is well again because such a measure will be needed to protect the Constitution from domestic enemies who are trying to destroy us all by attacking the philosophic foundations of our very existence.
