Jennifer Baker’s Attack on Chief Herzog: When the media tries to make a story for political insurrection

From the beginning I thought the case against West Chester Police Chief Joel Herzog in Ohio was nothing but a power move from two subordinates to knock off their boss using the modern cancel culture temperament as a platform for their own success, at his expense. As it turns out, Chief Herzog will be able to put this ridiculous event behind him and get back to work, the report on the investigation into the accusations against him is complete, one of the accusers Jamie Hensley quit his police captain job on June 23rd as the report was starting to show that he misstated the truth, and the other Capt. Gutman will remain uncomfortably on the force and will forever have to be that odd guy in the room who took a shot at his boss, and failed. Those two guys accused Herzog of using colorful language in public and private that is suddenly grounds for termination in today’s ultra-sensitive beta culture but was customary for the entire course of human civilization among alpha males. The only thing Herzog was guilty of was living long enough to be in a top job when the media and their communist insurgents in the Democrat Party decided to use a new strategy to overturn America and defund the police any way possible.

But the most concerning thing I noticed during this multiweek investigation into Herzog was to the level Jennifer Edwards Baker bit into the story from Fox 19. I understand aggressive reporting, but like we have seen from many members of the media over several issues, especially during the Trump years in the White House, was that as unelected bureaucrats, the media are attempting to shape stories for political purposes instead of reporting the stories as they happen. I doubt Jennifer identifies too heavily in favor of a political party, but she is part of that new reporter culture who knows what her bosses want for a story, and those executives in media are very much radicalized toward the objectives of political insurrection. The two West Chester cops heard the liberal dog whistle espoused by the media all over the nation to defund the police, the attempted impeachment of President Trump, the behavior of the FBI and DOJ acting against their boss the President and almost getting away with it, so they took a swipe at their own boss, Chief Herzog to take him out. Reporters like Baker at Fox 19 see the story developing in a well run community that is affluent like West Chester, Ohio and wants to portray that government as “good ol’ boy, backward run” so that they can inspire change, a larger government with more checks and balances to fulfill an overall political strategy that they are teaching in colleges these days. West Chester is a target for someone like Baker and her bosses at Fox 19 because they are small government and successful. So anytime those conditions are present, there is a media outlet looking to make a story out of tearing all that down.

Baker was in fact obsessed with the story tweeting about it regularly driving the narrative in the way that the national media was trying to push Covid-19 or the impeachment attempts by Democrats to rid themselves of President Trump. We were supposed to believe that if Herzog said things in private about women’s boobies and the racial observations regarding potential terrorists that he should be fired for having opinions and thoughts. The goal of these types of things is to change behavior so that any resemblance of a white masculine culture is eradicated. Even if Herzog did manage to keep his job through the blame game and power plays of subordinates, then he would be muzzled to allow future aggressors to gain strength for an eventual overthrow of the complete police department as a culture. If left to Jennifer Baker and Fox 19 the future West Chester Police Department would be run by Rocky Horror Picture Show drag queens rather than rough and tough alpha males who understand how to be tough, yet compassionate, but do notice that people look a certain way good or bad and can determine the difference.

Its not that the media was looking for justice in this case, they were hoping to inspire change. I caught Channel 5 doing the same thing about a month ago when Karin Johnson was encouraging Black Lives Matter protestors to go up into West Chester to take their marches there. I know Karin a bit as I’ve caught her before doing such activism with the Lakota school levy campaign. I understood her position, she’s an East Coast girl, used to be a cheerleader, she loves the whole school spirit thing. She doesn’t think about communism being taught in public schools, she thinks of making out with the quarterback after a football game and the sense of family that being popular in school can give a person, so she was an activist as a member of the media for the school levy. Even her cameraman argued with me about the validity of the tax increase in my driveway while doing interviews, so their left leaning radicalism is not a secret. It was easy to see her fingerprints on inspiring the Black Lives Matter protestors to come to West Chester. If not for the media coverage, the question should be asked, would the protestors even have shown up in Cincinnati?  I would say that the protests would have fizzled out in a few days on their own, but the media kept fanning the flames for their own agenda, and Karin fanned them in the direction of West Chester on purpose, because she wanted to report that story.

And that’s what Jennifer Baker was after with this blatant attack on Chief Herzog. Its bad enough that there are bottom feeder attorneys out there who are trying to bring down people like the Chief based on accusations from subordinates, but when you add the political agenda from the media which then feeds attorneys to take such activism against police departments to exacerbate the national movement of delegitimizing the police as a bunch of racists by exploiting power players like Hensely, Gutman and others to act and do the work of liberal activists who are very motivated in weakening all police departments around America, for political reasons of complete insurrection, we are looking at a well-established blob of activism that has no one single villain, but a system that is trying to overthrow our way of life. I doubt Jennifer thinks about big things like that while she’s trying to tear down the West Chester Police Department, all she wants is a pat on the head from her bosses at Fox 19. But the intent is just as malicious. She willingly played her part in an attack on the police that is very much part of our modern political insurrection that is threatening all our lives. I actually enjoyed reading some of the accusations about Herzog. I know I am willing to support more “old school” police officers instead of the type who make the “beta” cut and are so squeaky clean that you have to worry that they might be more concerned with “style” than substance. And when it comes to enforcing the law, we need fearless people who can tell a lot about people with a casual glance. What Fox 19 and the rest of the media want, is a cop paralyzed by fear of their potential reporting and being replaced by subordinates based on what they say—not what they do. And I personally don’t appreciate the media activism.

Government Can’t Make You Wear A Mask: Seeking to cover up a massive crime including many murders

I’ve explained the nonsense about wearing a mask in public many times during the Covid-19 “plandemic” but something people need to understand is that you do have a right and obligation to fight back at government if they issue you a ticket or a citation for not wearing one as many mayors and governors have begun to mandate, especially in places like downtown Cincinnati. Now for the life of me, I can’t imagine why anybody would want to go to downtown Cincinnati with all the Black Lives Matter protests, many of the nicer restaurant shut down, no sports going on, the museums micromanaged to the point where social distancing mandates ruin the experience. But some likely have to interact with government services and to do that the mask mandate is something they will have to be concerned about and for those occurrences it is important to remember that the government has no right whatsoever to demand that people wear those stupid masks. Government doesn’t own public space; they don’t dictate what goes on outside. They can give a recommendation, and that’s it. Any government that says they can fine you or punish you for not complying with their mask mandates is lying to you and they deserve to be punished.

The mask mandate for employees is a bit of a different story, unfortunately state government has its fingers in commerce to an unreasonable level and they can mandate the wearing of a mask if you want to make money in the normal way. Government unreasonably controls the means of production in every state jurisdiction so challenging the mask mandates is a bit trickier. But legally, it is quite clear, government cannot compel people to wear masks in public under any conditions on fake emergency powers and a façade of concern over people’s safety. There is one reason and only one reason that government wants to mandate the wearing a masks in public and that is to cover up their criminal behavior in what they did to our lives and our economy in their neurotic reaction to Covid-19.

By forcing you to wear a mask, government is forcing you to accept that Covid-19 is dangerous, and so long as people believe that, government can justify all the trillions of dollars of damage they have caused by letting a stupid virus get out of control in the public. Wearing a mask in public is an admission that lets the government off in the many thousands of court cases where they will be sued from now until eternity for the many constitutional violations they have imposed on free people and so long as people are wearing masks in public, it is a cover story for the actions of government.

The threat of a fine, or to suffer some punishment from government for not giving them a cover story for how they mismanaged Covid-19 is not only insane, but it is against all laws in every conceivable way. If government went out and committed murder, which in many ways they have, the murderer cannot go out and put guns of a similar caliber in the hands of the public to make it hard to prove who killed who. That is what the mandate for masks is a way to throw off any blame that might come down on government for mismanaging the coronavirus crises. We can talk about well-intentioned emergency powers trying to protect the public from a safety crises, the interpretation of what elected officials should do under ill-defined health concerns—but when government causes the death of people through micromanaging them, and it ruins the lives of millions of people, then someone has to pay. And they don’t get to hide behind perpetual emergency powers to keep people on their heels and out of the lawyer’s office with more lawsuits. The whole point of the masks is not to protect other people from you, or to mitigate any kind of impact from Covid-19, it is to cover up a crime.

The slowing the spread strategy that government has enacted toward the coronavirus started off as a well-intentioned exercise. It was kind of like a child using a gun and shooting someone who steps into their house late at night while the kid is terrified of whomever is trying to get through their front door. Once inside and after shots are fired the kid realizes that they had just shot and killed their drunk father who had lost his keys at the house of a mistress and was impatient to get inside so he could crash into his bed and sleep off his drunkenness. Everyone was guilty of something in that case but they all could explain their actions away with some “good intention.” Yet murder was the result. That is much the way government had screwed the pooch on Covid-19. For all the malicious intentions that Covid-19 entered our lives, government was like the kid who just shot at it not knowing all the details, and what we ended up with was a dead economy, a political situation that favored the Democrats desperate for some way to win something in the upcoming fall elections. And once they realized their crime, they sought to cover it up with more safety mandates that would keep people from discovering just how stupid they reacted over the coronavirus from the beginning.

Sure, hindsight is 20/20 and there are lots of government officials who regret their panic and would likely do it over again differently. But that doesn’t change the fact that the media drove the story for political reasons and many of them were caught as suckers. Yet it doesn’t mean they get to fine us and punish us for not following their cover story—that the virus was dangerous and what they are doing in reaction to it was for the good of the public. No, what they did was only good for them and they are seeking to make the public play along with their defense. After all, who would bring forth a lawsuit against government while there are mask mandates for the population in general? It sort of drives home to any judge that the government at least believes that what it is doing has the best interest for the public in mind. If that were to come into question, then what judge could say otherwise about any of their judgments?

The wearing of the masks creates something of a legal paradox that keeps the government off the hook for a while, and that’s all its about. But know this, they can’t make you wear the damn things. Government can’t even keep the streets safe from anarchists and race baiters, and they think they have a right to issue you a ticket for not wearing a mask? Please………….that is as grotesque an abuse of the law as there is in our legal system. And for what, to cover up their much bigger crimes of tampering with our economy, destroying our jobs, and ruining lives in just about every way that they could—because essentially they were the dumb, ignorant kid who used a gun they knew nothing about to shoot their drunk dad who was out in the night with ill intentions and malice, yet found themselves shot dead trying to get back into the house by their panicky child. Government hopes that by wearing the mask, people won’t see what idiots they were. But day by day, the more rules they come up with, the more they confirm it.

Fireworks and American Celebration in the Black Hills of South Dakota: Why the Indians lost and why its important to understand

Of course, we can’t as Americans just enjoy a patriotic fireworks show returned to the Black Hills of South Dakota at Mt. Rushmore without hearing about some Indian protest over land rights. For me, this whole argument is as stupid as arguing about who won a Super Bowl two years ago and whether or not the game should be replayed and a new victor determined. I have written extensively about how warlike the Indians were, they did not “own” the land of North America. Indians frequently worked hard to conquer and fight each other, so their fight with the “white man” was nothing new or unusual for them, other than the new wars with the migrants from the East brought with them better technology and were able to win conflicts because of it. So in the battles of Westward Expansion in the context of history, the Indians lost, the Americans won, and its good for the world in my opinion that it came out that way. The Black Hills are the perfect setting for a patriotic fireworks display, and the backdrop of the American Cowboy is the correct thing to think about as defiance is always the theme of 4th of July ceremonies as victory and conquests won are celebrated with grand audacity. That’s not to say that I dislike the Indian plight.

There is a lot that I like about those people and their cultures, just as I like a lot about the Chinese and the Japanese. One of my favorite topics to read about is the many battles that were fought in the Ohio Valley from the 1740s to the 1800s that paved the way for Westward Expansion that literally took place in my back yard. I respect the plight of Tecumseh, but I LOVE the bravery and action of Simon Kenton, Lewis Wetzel, and Danial Boone—along with many others. I put the great novels of Allen Eckert as some of the best that world literature has ever produced, and I’ve read a lot of the great classics including Finnegan’s Wake, Canterbury Tales, and War and Peace. The work by Eckert, especially his grand book That Dark and Bloody River, about fighting the Indians along the Ohio River valley to tame the land for expansion westward I think puts most great works around the world to shame because it is so enormously good. It’s a phenomenal work of literature and I think should be required reading in every classroom, every household, because it captures the American spirit so well. And by no means would I say that Eckert was an Indian hater. Quite the opposite, I think he worked hard to plead their case for being a good team in the game of life who lost—for lots of good reasons. I would say that for me, two of Eckert’s novels about Westward Expansion, That Dark and Bloody River, and The Frontiersman are more valuable to me than the Holy Bible. I cherish those works in such a manner.

But lets make it clear, the plight of the Indian, or of any people of color whether it be from Africa, or Spain through the conquest of Central America where they migrated with the people of the Aztec and Maya to form today’s Mexican, or the Chinese—the battle that was fought for North America was a long running game of liberalism with conservativism, or rather put better for context, the yearning for the primitive with those of progress. In short, the theme is always for liberals that they want tribes of people who listen to a tribal leader for the kind of society that stays in its lines and is always perpetually at the mercy of nature as opposed to the kind of people who do not want a centralized leader and want to be free to create new advancements for an ever changing tomorrow and the inventions of creativity that come from free minds. I often point to the Woodstock music festival that took place a month after the moon landing as a modern example of this. But even better are the events of our current time where bands of tribes such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter are being stroked to create violence against the “colonial” powers and spit in the eye of history. Or the ridiculous corporate support of this wearing mask movement that is aligned with government these days. The intent of course is to rouse in people a superstition about the Covid-19 virus that will push people into yielding to a centralized group of figures, in this case the medical professionals. The Covid-19 virus has become like a deity to primitive people that must have some kind of rain dance to appease the temperament of the gods so that crops will grow or some luck might bestow us all if only we wear a mask to protect us from a disease.

That is why the media has been trying to hype protests in South Dakota by the Lakota Indians ahead of Trump’s visit, because its tribalism that they want Americans to fall for, and a rethinking of history that makes people consider that the technology that won the West was unfair, that humans should have stayed spear chuckers for the rest of their time on planet earth. That is literally their argument every time they talk about Indian land rights, or in changing the name of some high school or NFL team to something less offensive to Indians. They want to glamorize the Indian because they want human kind to stay in their lanes and continue to shout at the sky to appease the gods who live there, rather than building rockets to leave the earth and continue our exploration into space just as the Ohio Valley filled with similar adventurers providing a gateway into South Dakota for America to be born. People yielding to this pressure are stupid and have made a choice not to understand the real game at play. But the results are unmistakable. Any culture in the world could have had the technology that made America, the weapons and philosophy that made America the greatest country on earth. But they didn’t. And if the settlers had taken off their clothes and became like the Indians running around half naked and doing a dance over every little decision, there wouldn’t be a United States of America.

Tecumseh, the great Shawnee warrior from Ohio, born very close to modern day Xenia tried to unite the Indians of the entire nation to fight the surging white people, but he couldn’t do it. The different tribes had too many varying differences to pull it off and Tecumseh was eventually killed helping the British during the War of 1812 at the Battle of the Thames in 1813. Even when the Indians joined with other enemies of America such as the French and English at that time, American spirit still won out, just as it will during these days of Trump’s presidency, because more about what a culture intends to do that makes it good or bad as opposed to some static thought of how a culture is structured, wins in the end. Even different Indian tribes broke out in war against each other after they had joined the French to fight at Fort Duquesne. If the “white man” had never moved to North America, the Indians would not have lived in peace. They were about as peaceful as the protestors of Black Lives Matter or Antifa. They were primitives who saw valor in fighting and were fighting each other for honor when they weren’t praying to the eagle gods for food. And that is what the modern political left wants, because they are lazy thinkers and a superstitious people who would rather function naked and afraid rather than to carry a good rifle on their backs and face the future with a mind to tame it, and bring with them a new culture that could be enjoyed by all. And that is why its significant that the fireworks have returned to the Black Hills of South Dakota, and to specifically Mt. Rushmore. There is a lot more to that mountain than just a carving. It’s a declaration of civilization that happened for the good of everyone, which is something the political left refuses to see.

Public School Reopenings in Ohio during Covid-19: Every hour that kids are away, the better off they’ll be

In my school district in Ohio, Lakota which has been discussed so much over the last several years, I can’t really fault the return to school plans that were recently unveiled by the superintendent Matt Miller. What’s he going to do after all? The three plans he put forth, which I had already heard brewing from Governor DeWine himself a few weeks ago when the governor stated that most of Ohio’s school boards around the state planned to punt on this issue anyway, are kind of ridiculous. Plan A brings kids back to class, but they have to reduce the cafeterias to 50% capacity, separate the desks by 3 feet, and the students and teachers have to wear those stupid masks all day—which is just ridiculous. Plan B has kids coming to school every other day with the same kind of distancing restrictions, which again is another government mandate that teaches children submission to state authority and does little to solve any viral problems. And Plan C is 100% remote learning. In essence, it gives the radical teacher’s unions everything they want, more days off, less kids in class to teach, and the ability to wear masks all day to hide their faces and restrict their coffee stained teacher breaths from contaminating all the innocent children who might otherwise be forced to succumb to the odor. That is pretty much how it will be for most government schools opening in the fall of 2020 and I’m OK with it.

The less time a kid spends in one of these public schools is more brain capacity they get back. I have been warning about the state mandated socialist curriculum that all public schools have been teaching for decades. I have spent the last 20 years fighting for a defunding of the nonsense to hopefully save a few kids from the meat grinder of stupidity that is government schools. Government can’t even build and run a park, let alone educate the next generation. And that failure has been on full display during these recent race riots. I would say that 99% of the children coming out of public schools do not completely survive the government school education experience intact. They end up as adults as diminished people. 1% or less fall through the cracks and end up as something worthwhile. But to my measure a good adult trained in public education is not a loser who just does what the state tells them to be, someone who doesn’t shoot very high in life, mows their grass once a week through the summer, marries two or three spouses in their lifetime, and turns their children over to state control—to my mind if our education system isn’t trying to make the next Elon Musk, or Einstein, or Thomas Edison, it’s a waste of time. The kind of people public education makes is a much-reduced version of human kind that I have very little value for. So the less time kids spend in public school, the higher the ratio will be that they might grow up to become something good.

I am also the guy who sat down with a reporter at Lakota East and challenged the teachers there directly who were upset with me that I was against the higher taxes they wanted, and volunteered to personally teach 4 of their classes at the same time for a two week period. The teachers were trying to convince me at the time that their jobs were so hard that I would struggle to mimic their activities, which I found preposterous. I told several teachers at Lakota directly with a Journal News reporter present as a moderator that they could pick any 4 topics and put any number of kids in them and I would do a better job of teaching than any of the teachers could within a two week period, and I’d do it for free, for the pleasure in teaching young people how to think. I don’t view the teaching profession as hard, it’s a privilege to teach children, and I don’t think schoolteachers should complain about anything. If someone is willing to pay them money, that’s even better. But they have very short workdays, anything under 9 hours I think is a rip off, and they are off all summer. They are not worth the money that we pay them, especially at Lakota where many of them make nearly six figures through their ridiculous collective bargaining agreements. They challenged me to do their jobs, I accepted, but we never formally moved in that direction.

But also as we have talked about often on this site, and anywhere that people bring it up to me, government schools are not about teaching children anything, it’s basically a free babysitting service. And this new plan in Ohio for government schools to operate under only benefits the teacher’s unions, as usual. They work less, have fewer kids to teach, and they still get paid for the results. The parents will have to figure out what to do with their children which is just another cost burden on them, which as a reaction to Covid-19 which I have said often is purely political, parents have already had to figure out. So what good is Lakota schools to the community if parents aren’t getting what they really need out of the service? They are paying huge levels of taxation to essentially get a babysitter who isn’t there for them. Of course the government is going to punt on the liability of opening a school, they have allowed the goofball loser Amy Acton of Ohio to scare them thoroughly in regard to the reaction of Covid-19 which is a global push for Marxism rather than any real threat to mankind. And the teachers don’t want to work, they want to use “fear for their safety” to sit on their fat asses at home collecting a paycheck from property owners. If they can use Covid-19 as an excuse to do even less work, of course they will exploit it.

Yet, none of that matters when it comes to children and their minds. The less time they spend in a government school, the better for them. Many people think the tragedy of Covid-19 is that kids have been robbed of their graduation ceremonies, and the socialization that they get with peer contact at schools. Most of those people come out of the older generation where public school was an important part of their world outlook, but its also why they live as adults with a dulled sense of things as they are easily suckered by government on things like Covid-19, Russia Russia Russia, and Chinese propaganda. Government schools don’t teach kids to think, it teaches them to be compliant, so I think every hour that a kid is out of those terrible places, the better chance they have of becoming something special as an adult. So I’m perfectly fine with Lakota’s reopening plan, especially Plan B. I have grandchildren who are now school age. I can teach them anything they want to know about any topic in the universe with confidence. They don’t need a school of loser teachers from a socialist union to tell them anything. And they don’t need a babysitter because my daughters do the job of parenting the correct way, by being 100% available to the children. In that regard, the free babysitting is useless in my family, less time in the classroom gets the kids away from the government mandated complacency that they’d otherwise suffer under, so I see it only as a good thing. Maybe if some of these kids can get away from the government schools for a few years while the government employees milk Covid-19 every way they can, we might find a few Einsteins out there who may develop into special people instead of agents of Antifa or Marxist losers like Black Lives Matter.

Calling the Bluff of Government on Covid-19: They want you to bend the knee to the virus with a mask

If you haven’t figured it out yet and are still terrified of every little thing that Dr. Fauci says, there are a few things to remember, even though I have been explaining it to you Dear Reader for months. The purpose of the testimony that Fauci and others gave on Capital Hill this week was to panic the public into complying with their interpretation of the virus, Covid-19. And “they” meaning the political forces against President Trump and his supporters felt they had to turn up the heat after Trump’s Oklahoma Rally recently and the follow-up in Arizona to prevent the campaign from resuming the big rallies for which Biden could in no way compete. The Democrats have such a bad candidate that the media—who have proven themselves to be nearly entirely trained Marxists these days—and radicals for their cause, are propping Joe Biden up ridiculously at this point. They know he can never go toe to toe with Trump, so they are trying to change the rules of the game to make it easier to help out Joe Biden. Covid-19 isn’t about saving lives, its about helping Democrats win elections in the fall—and nothing else.

You can know that government is lying to you by their choice in measurements. Dr. Doom Fauci himself tried to jump out of the closet during his testimony to yell, “boo” hoping to rattle America back into closures which some of the red state governors fell for under great pressure. Government doesn’t have a right to close down bars, or anything for that matter. Government should never be in the way of economic commerce. If they aren’t there to help grow it, then they need to get out of the way. Using a virus as an excuse to throttle economic activity, which they hope and pray will still be an issue at the time of the upcoming election, is criminal conduct to drive home the issue and get people to buy in to the massive levels of corruption they need to force Americans to bend the knee to the virus with the mandating of masks to sell the implications to an otherwise innocuous issue. But concern is not what anybody should feel, because essentially what the election is forcing, and Trump’s response to it, is to push the CDC and its Marxist surrogates to go all in, which Fauci did by stating there could be up to 100,000 cases per day. Well, so what if there is? Who cares?

You see, the government has been trying to sell to you that cases are the same as death, even after they are literally sending in the National Guard to help conduct testing so they can get more results of cases, faster. In this way they can use “cases” to justify the trillions of dollars that the dummy government types have wasted on panic, and on political action to alter the course of the election. Additionally, these same dummies are all in on contact tracing, mandated vaccine development, and the scheme to continue the socialization of medicine, enact Agenda 21 strategies from the United Nations, and a whole host of other goals, none of which involve saving lives because lives aren’t unusually in danger due to the virus. The push would be to trace every virus in this same way now that they have started it, to justify getting suckered into it in the first place. So, yes, they are going all in on this Covid-19 issue because they have no choice in the matter now that they have put so much on the line. But they don’t have the cards. Once people realize that death and cases are not connected, the scare literally loses its meaning and this whole argument will abate embarrassingly into nothing.

Anybody who willingly wears a mask is an idiot. If some place of business requires the masks, then people should honor their rules, but otherwise, it’s a dumb acknowledgement to bend the knee to a virus the government reports it has no control over. Yet the government is using that lack of control to control election politics and the happiness of people in general. Again, I’m not going to kiss and tell but I have been in conversations recently with high level people, and I can tell you, they are not very smart. One of those people was Dummy Mike DeWine who said that one of his jobs as governor of the state of Ohio was to protect the lives of those most vulnerable. Auhh, the Constitution doesn’t say that anywhere, that is every bit as dumb as when John Kasich justified Medicaid expansion “socialized medicine” because he thought God told him to. Breaking the law, shutting down businesses, and expanding government out of some interpretation of a job description doesn’t make power grabs any more justified. When DeWine and other government losers like Nancy Pelosi advocate wearing masks in public it is to get you to bend the knee to their bad decisions and acknowledge their power to manipulate the public in the way they are by yielding to their power. If they say the situation is dangerous, then by God, it is.

Well, its not. In a few weeks even with 100,000 cases per day, or 500,000 cases per day, it won’t change the outcome. Hospitals won’t be overrun. Medical staff might have to work and not play on their phones all day, but our health care system will be just fine. One thing that the Marxist media hasn’t been reporting is that hospital discharges are occurring as fast as people are incoming, meaning, people are getting over Covid-19 and getting back to their lives quickly. Government doesn’t want anybody to know that, they want to slow the spread so that it lasts until the election. They want to have the power to shut down businesses when someone comes down with Covid and to take them off the job for 14 days, and mandate that all the people they contacted do the same, not for safety, but to slow the spread and keep this story alive until the election. And if we don’t cave into their fears, and we just keep chugging along economically, people will see for themselves that the Covid-19 thing was a lie from the beginning, and its going to piss them off.

Yes, losing sports for most of the year was unnecessary, not being able to drink with friends at a bar or pub was foolish. Wearing around a stupid mask was completely dumb and useless. It was a fake crises, a real virus, but the government reaction to it was purely politically and globally strategic. The goal of Covid-19 was to sucker Donald Trump to play along to his own election detriment. And he did play along for a while, but he’s seen the light and there is an election to win. Out of all the fake polling that is going on out there to shape public opinion, if Trump took a hit, it was because his supporters were disappointed in him for playing along. The media wants nothing more than for Trump to wear a mask in public to bend the knee to a virus. Rather Trump and the people who will be voting for him want to dominate the virus. Americans don’t hide and kneel to a sickness, and they don’t ruin their economy to them, ever. It happened thus far because people got caught trusting people like Fauci. Well, he cried wolf too many times, and we found out the wolf was a little midget puppy dog, nothing to be concerned with. And in a few weeks, the government will have to admit to it once they see that the people are rejecting their premise, and at that point, there will be nothing to stop the hatred of government that comes thereafter.

We are not like the McCloskeys: When the monsters get loose–then what? Jurassic Park?

It’s not about Mark McCloskey and his wife who found themselves protecting their Renaissance palazzo-style home this past Sunday with firearms facing down an angry mob in St Louis, its about “stand your ground laws” and the need for them. In all likelihood, the McCloskeys, who are personal injury attorneys who support Black Lives Matter helped build this monster with their law practice, but that was beside the point as the media took the lead on this one to instigate more mob behavior in the way they reported the incident. It was for the McCloskeys like getting bit by a dog they had raised from a puppy and they had to bring their guns in on that dog to keep it from killing them once it had gone mad. I would never say that the McCloskeys are like the rest of us, Americans just trying to live their lives who suddenly found themselves threatened by a leftist takeover against their private property. They helped build that threat, and they knew quickly where the laws were in protecting themselves in case something went wrong. Rather, the McCloskeys are more like the well-intentioned owners of Jurassic Park who tried to bring dinosaurs back to life, then found themselves eaten by them, or at least threatened.

But the case does bring up some interesting legal questions that must be explored as we have seen on several occasions throughout 2020 how direct government failure has led to a threat to our personal lives, first through the Covid-19 shut downs and witnessing mad governors abusing their authority to grossly infringe on individual rights. Then we have watched the dysfunctional marriage of government and the media blow on the embers of racism to start a raging fire meant to destroy everything all in an attempt to stop the re-election of Donald Trump. Whatever the motives, we have witnessed what happens when government fails and ultimately that was what happened at the McCloskey mansion in a nice part of St Louis as a mob of anarchists and radicals marched on the mayor’s home to petition a change in government through sheer force. There are so many things wrong with this assumption, not the least was the media who were clearly advocating for what they think of as a “democratic” mob to incite fear and change to push the mayor to resign. But along the way, the mob trampled through the property of Mark McCloskey and his wife thinking they had a right to destroy everything in their path.

Now in Missouri they have some decent Stand Your Ground laws, which as an attorney McCloskey would have known about, and he used it the moment the mob identified itself as a lethal threat. They knew they had the right to grab their guns and aim them at the mob to protect themselves from being run over. Also, as attorneys for Black Lives Matter types of cases, they knew that the foundation of the movement wasn’t racial equality, but radical Marxism where private property is considered reprehensible and those guarding it, needing to be destroyed. So McCloskey and his wife knew that if they didn’t take a hard stand against the mob, that everything they had worked so hard in preserving at that restored mansion they were living in, would be looted and destroyed. Black Lives Matter activists believe that property can be restored, but lives can’t—so they believe they can loot and destroy anything and would still be functioning morally correct. With all that in mind, the McCloskeys are not like the rest of us. We might sympathize with their situation, we are all thinking about ourselves stuck in their situation these days, but unlike them, we do not have such valuable property in an inner city setting that is a target for mob violence, and have built our entire lives around appeasing an imposed guilt from some heritage that we have no responsibility for. It would not surprise me to find out that the McCloskey family were liberals and for years have fed this mob to become big and dangerous.

The issue is however what the law should be in such a case. When the McCloskeys called the police, nobody of course was going to come. There was no help. They were ostracized from civil society the moment the mob formed, so they had to do something to live, because if they hadn’t, that “peaceful mob of protestors” would have destroyed their property, as they were clearly preparing to do, and would likely have beaten the couple to death, just as most Marxists around the world have done to those they consider the enemies of the proletariat, the bourgeoisie—or even the political aristocracy of that given time. In my state of Ohio we are still trying to convince our governor, Dummy DeWine that his tight gun control laws have actually empowered these types of mobs, by not having “stand your ground” laws and maintaining a weak “castle doctrine” that imposes a “duty to retreat” before grabbing our guns and standing our ground on our lawns. Most places in the country are like Ohio, where gun laws have been so watered down it has clearly given rise to empowering these mobs to exploit the weaknesses of the government and the people suffering under their sheer stupidity. The law expects in Ohio that if something like what happened to the McCloskeys occurred then the homeowners would have a duty to retreat and to leave all their property to the mob. They would not have a right to defend their property to their every last breath, and that is part of the cause of this sudden uptick in violence. The mobs know that the government has no stomach for protecting private property so now they can use that fear to control mass populations, and that is one of the many causes of this climate of violence we are seeing now.

The expectation from Mike DeWine and many other progressive governors across America is that we must wait for the authorities to do their jobs and maintain law and order. So what happens when the attackers want to defund the police, the mayors and governors are listening to those demands, and we witness in general a complete government failure on a massive scale. Such as government letting prisoners go out of a fear that Covid-19 might spread among the prison population, then that same government turns around to arrest and imprison business owners not observing social distancing or bending the knee with the latest government mask mandate. Obviously, government doesn’t know what its doing so why should property owners trust them with anything? Why should there be a duty to retreat and to leave property to replacement through insurance, when its well known that insurance rates will go up dramatically? Who will pay for the increased premiums? The mob?

The police were not going to come to the aid of Mark McCloskey and his wife Patricia. And after Covid-19 and all the budget cuts, and the bad press from the media driven race riots, there won’t be much positive police presence in the future. So it should never be expected that property owners will be forced to yield to mobs in the future, but will have to engage them at the point of the threat to maintain law and order. And any government, such as Ohio’s Mike DeWine that fights against that trend is part of the problem and is directly helping to build these mobs through empowerment. “Stand your Ground” isn’t just important legislation, it is crucial to maintaining order in a world quickly spiraling down the drain of Marxist chaos. Politicians responsible are likely like the McCloskeys, in denial of their role in the mess, but truly, the only way to fix it is with more gun owners taking over the job of the police and protecting the efforts of productivity from the chaos of anarchists and mobs of Marxists. That is the world they created and now we all must find a way to fix it, not with appeasement, but with firm resolution with guns and an ability to use them to maintain order.

Chad Prather’s “Take Six Feet and Shove It”: Celebrating the 4th of July before we have to do it all over again

The 4th of July is still a week away, but already people are starting to fire off fireworks late into the night in an open defiance to the laws from our overly regulated government offices who preach safety and security to the point of killing our nation with boredom. That kind of defiance is healthy and good, yet I can’t help but wonder why so many people have been suckers to this latest Covid-19 nonsense. I mean, I understand there are a lot of timid souls out there who read all the directions that come with their lawn mowers so they don’t cut off their feet while cutting their grass, but the government lockdowns, the mandates for six foot social distancing, and the media panic over Covid-19 testing has been too much to witness. Obviously, the whole thing has been a massive socialist scam coming out of China. Any hit against Trump’s reputation that he has experienced is due to him getting suckered by it, and he now must repair that mistake, which he has begun doing. I think these days Trump is listening more to The Blaze’s Chad Prather more than Dr. “Doom” Fauci, which is good. But people in general should be doing the same, and should follow the guidelines of Prather’s latest song, “Take Six Feet and Shove It” because that spirit is needed more than ever as we approach the 4th of July.

Defiance of the rules is a healthy way to measure the validity of them. The socialist insurgents and anarchists have already figured out that the bureaucrat pinheads who run our government don’t have the guts to hold up law and order, so why the hell are the good people of this nation running around honoring “social distancing,” and wearing face masks in public just because a bunch of dumb governors tell us too. To counter what Mike DeWine of Ohio has said as governor, the science is far from irrefutable. It is in fact full of bullshit holes and mysticism. Chad Prather is right to make a song inciting rebellion on the matter, because our national reaction to Covid-19 has been an embarrassment. Trump should have rejected the WHO guidelines to Covid-19 from the outset. Instead, he knew they were going to try to hit him with the death count either way, so he played along, which severely weakened him in the eyes of his supporters. Not irreparably, but it was Trump’s first major stumble of his presidency in the eyes of his supporters, who always knew better. Sure it was under good intentions, and now most everyone knows that Covid-19 was a scam—except for the dumb governors who fell for it big time and are now being sued from just about every direction for constitutional violations. But ultimately, the spirit of America is expected to push back on these dumb laws and regulations and that’s what Prather’s video is all about.

But its not enough to just fire off a few fireworks. This is an age of rebellion and we must shove back into the faces of the maniacal institutionalists our rejection of their proposed rules and regulations intent to control our every last movement. The wearing of masks in public is an obvious attempt to force American society to bend the knee to globalist goals, and we should never do it, or accept it. These demands to make all employees wear masks in public is ridiculous, and we do what we have to do to make a living, but we should not do it with smiles on our faces that people can’t see anyway. We need to tell these governors to shove it. Its their stupidity that allowed themselves to be suckered, not our decisions. And social distancing is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard, a whole policy that is shutting down sporting events, amusement parks, and fine dining over a mystical appeal toward fake science is preposterous. There is no science that shows that social distancing and mask wearing works at all, let alone slowing some spread of a virus that our medical industry can easily handle anyway. The way we are measuring viruses such as Covid-19 is new, and completely politically motivated. Measuring cases not deaths is the issue, and attributing cases as deaths has been the biggest political scam ever conducted. People are disappointed that Trump got pulled into the drama convinced that he was going to save lives. But with hindsight being 20/20 we know now it was all complete crap, and so its time we do like Prather suggests, and that is to tell them to take all these Covid rules and to “shove it.”

I was talking to some older guys the other day, some of them former FBI agents, and they were talking about what to do next when the police are defunded and these governors continue to fall for scams from the communist loving World Health Organization in defending liberty and justice in America. When you find out that there is a political movement to rename John Wayne Airport in California out of sensitivity to racism, its time to grab our guns and take matters into our own hands. I know what John Wayne said in that controversial interview from 1971 and it wasn’t a big deal at all. It was taken out of context, Wayne wanted all people to be free, including blacks. But suddenly, his film legacy was being attacked, which is just another attack against you and me dear reader, so I was talking about all this with these older guys and they were ready to start shooting people right this minute. The question among them was when and who would be the first. I thought this was pretty surprising because these were not the kind of people who would normally talk this way. These were all former government employees, now retired who could see that the only way out, minus a Trump re-election, was to take up arms and fight back with violence the forces attacking America right now. And why not, through Covid-19 our government showed that they are easily manipulated and make bad decisions. They can’t handle the mobs. And now their priority was to change the names of airports named after popular conservative actors. Well, that’s a bridge too far.

So yeah, its coming up on independence day. It’s a time to throw caution to the wind and be a lot rebellious ignoring the rules to pay homage to the conditions that built our country into the law and order titan that it has been which ultimately secures our freedom. But all that is under attack and we are at a point where we must do more than fire off a few fireworks. We need to go several steps further, at the very least, ignoring social distancing and the public wearing of masks. Because if we don’t do that now, we may very well be very close to actually having to take up arms to fight the communists who are trying to take over our government right now. If Trump doesn’t recover, and if we don’t get behind him, and the socialists pull out a victory through cheating, we’re going to have to do a lot more to defend our liberty than dance to the latest Prather song. For now, it’s a good gesture. But tomorrow, it could be a lot more that is needed. So, lets all tell our government to shove it on the Covid response and hope that Trump can hold out and win. Because if not, the writing is on the wall. We are going to have to fight in the streets to rebuild our country and all the parody songs in the world won’t be enough to wash away the blood that will be spilt. Its good and healthy to tell our government to shove it, because the next step is that we’ll have to perform that task for real.

Why “They” Hate Trump and You So Much: How all these vast conspiracies have coordinated their efforts

After several conversations I’ve had with people this past week some who are extremely knowledgeable and successful, they had questions, the number one they have asked me was how all these various media outlets, global health organizations, government bureaucrats, and local radical protestors could coordinate such a vast conspiracy together to put on the pressure to harm President Trump’s re-election possibilities. After all, its not like they all met in a room with a well hatched plan to do all that we are seeing here and unleashing the results. The answer I had for them, which I get into much greater detail in my upcoming book, ‘The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business’ was that much of this activity is baked into our human society. People get the same basic education practices so they deal with problems largely based on what they were taught which is why so many people are quick to fall for big scams like Covid-19 and the death counts that are measured to set off alarms in the media, or the nature of Black Lives Matter. Because of the way we raise ourselves, as people, we all follow a similar pattern of reaction to a crises, and that allows enemies of freedom to easily coordinate attacks on our Republic as they trust the reactions people will have to their antics.

The severe hatred of President Trump that most institutionalists have is a trained behavior, not an instinctual one. Donald Trump used to be one of them, he was a playboy hanging around with Jeffery Epstein and running around with the rich and famous. He was very rich for a time, then he fell hard and was one of the most indebted people in the world. He’s been through several marriages and was for most of his life a social wreck that wasn’t a threat to the established order of things. That is until he married the right woman, aged a bit and matured, and developed a real love for the country and wanted to give something back after he realized that he had a lot to give after the television show, The Apprentice. And once he started running he realized there were a lot of people in America who were not part of that system he had been in, and they wanted nothing to do with it. So he gave them a voice and that’s where we are today. President Trump is a spokesman to the kind of people that America was always supposed to produce, but have been vastly ignored due to the nature of institutionalism.

You know the type, the people who get passed over for promotions because they speak too freely, or are “too” smart. Nobody, especially at the top of the food chain promotes people they fear will be better than they are and will be nipping at their heels threatening to make them look bad socially. People like other people who are just as compromised, and they seek security from performance review through peer acknowledgments. Its essentially the high school mentality that was a direct result of public-government schools, there are the popular kids, the less popular kids and of course the duds. By age 15 or so we all accept one of those roles in life and we live the rest of our days chained to those expectations. And successful people learn that its not merit that gets you high up in life, its how well you network with other people, most of the time who are losers, but have peer acceptance. And that is largely how an institutionalized society functions at all levels. That is also why a bunch of Black Lives Matter radicals are able to barge into a Target and start a rally with curse words in a family store while they steal merchandise in full view of all the cameras, but nobody confronts them to bring forth justice. Because corporations are often run by such people, collective bands of know-nothings who have lived their entire lives chained to some social class. They traded freedom for secure incomes long ago and now that they are challenged by radicals of their own imprisoned kind, they are frozen into a lack of action.

Trump like many of his supporters is a person who has broken free of that high school expectation of popularity, and like others who find themselves similarly free, people hate him for that independence. Most reading this can relate, they know at their places of work that they must comply with the old high school rules of social structure or they will not get raises, they will not get invites to play with the other popular kids in their reindeer games and that hurts them not only emotionally, but in the fear of not being able to make a good living. So they accept their flaws, because it makes them more appealing to others who always want to live up to a low bar of expectation and are thus imprisoned to a way of thinking that was designed from the beginning to hold them down. Most large corporations are filled with these types of people, most all who work in government are, and of course those are the same types of idiots who want to change the Star Spangled Banner to the John Lennon song “Imagine” because they can’t relate to freedom, only the conformity of the group. The freedoms of America are available to everyone, but most people are willing to trade those freedoms away to move up in their company, to get a prestigious role within their community, or to not be the least liked person at the next block party. They shove their kids into sports so they can have something to talk about that is socially acceptable at those parties, but secretly they hope that their children will luck out and get a chance at the big time, become independently wealthy and be free of this nonsense.

Yet, when someone like a Trump comes along who is independently wealthy, and has worked to be better than average and seems keen to live his own life, that hatred resonates among all those who have chickened out a long time ago toward any kind of expectation as such. And most of the Trump supporters are not so wealthy—but they want the chance to become so. They have not accepted the limits of institutionalized society and they yet have hope that America can inspire in people more than just acceptance of the norms, but a yearning for a better tomorrow complete with sheer tenacity. But that is the source of the vast conspiracy. People trained to be average by their education systems, their parents, and their society have a deep resentment of those who do not follow them over the cliff. People who insist on living free are a threat to the order of things. And even when they are punished and are still resolute on that course, the anger isn’t just directed at Trump, its at all those who stand behind him as a base support. Their attack on him is an attack on the rest of us who have rejected the limits society placed on itself, and we want more. More that only a free American society can give, and that is the harsh reality behind this next election. Their fear is complete rejection of their choices, like the popular kids in high school fear that nobody will like their place on the football team, or their role as cheerleaders. When people no longer care what institutionalism can give them, there is a fear of what comes next, and that is the unifying fear that is driving all these vast conspiracies. And why the threat of violence is so real. The instigators know of nothing else.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mike DeWine Doesn’t Understand Business or the Customer Experience: Why government always screws up–everything

Its not that it surprised me in the least, but it is always a harsh reminder when I get to hear directly from someone like Governor Mike DeWine to get a measure just how ignorant they are about life outside of public office. It’s a pretty universal problem, I’ve met Mike DeWine here and there over the years particularly when he was just a U.S. Senator at various events and fundraisers. He seemed like a bright guy so long as everyone was talking about conventional law within the pretense of a civil society. But recently as a member of the media I was invited to have a closed door meeting with the Governor as he made the rounds from room to room at the Ohio Statehouse to do damage control over his Covid-19 response and the vandalism that was going on nightly there by rioters in the streets. It was very disappointing to hear from DeWine’s own mouth how lost he was to actual economic activity and what causes it or kills it. I heard firsthand a very smart House member grill the Governor over economic limits due to the Covid-19 reopening in Ohio and DeWine could not relate to the problem. To him, a lifelong politician, businesses being open should have been enough. But what he failed to understand was to what extent any business had to work to win a customer and to what impact government had destroyed that endeavor not just in Ohio, but across the nation.

DeWine isn’t alone, most politicians are disconnected from the realities of winning a customer and keeping them. To my experience most politicians, certainly not all, but most go into public life because they find the private life too scary, too uncertain for their timid souls. And because they are such cowards and risk averse people, they take a silent pleasure in going into government so they can create laws and legislation that tames the wild hearts of the business entrepreneur and forces them to comply with government officials all in the right to be in business to begin with. So a life time government guy like DeWine never really had to sweat it out about how to maintain a customer base, because his customers are always those who are forced to come to government no matter how bad that government is. Such as life with the BMV or the IRS. If you have a bad customer experience, you have no choice but to grin and bare it. DeWine and other politicians have no way of understanding how hard it is to run a movie theater, a restaurant, or even a chain store when they go out and scare the hell out of people with a bunch of false measurements, such as measuring the cases of Covid-19, not the statistical deaths, thus destroying economic activity.

Politicians are even dumber when they must consider the big picture, such as when major networks and their investors have a vast global conspiracy in mind for which through donations, they expect to control politicians. DeWine when I was able to hear from him directly is even more clueless about such things because it falls outside his “pay grade” as lazy people like to term it. They are always willing to punt to those things that are in “God territory” and are happy to say they are just small cogs in a big machine, and they trust that the operators of that machine know what they are doing. So when some globalist health director tells them to do this or that, they do it without question, because they trust the machine. Of course, that trust puts the rest of us in peril because we need those elected officials to do that extra leg work to understand the situation. But they never do, because public life is not performance based, so people who don’t want to be measured by such things, are attracted to public life. They certainly aren’t interested in the big picture of things.

Yet because of the sheer stupidity of these governors and mayors who are operating well outside their expertise, Covid-19 has exposed them as the shells they are. And because of our political structure, many thousands of businesses have been choked to near death, if not death itself. I’m thinking of entertainment companies like Kings Island, movie theater chains like AMC and virtually every restaurant that has had their hours cut, their opportunities to make money greatly limited, and their customer base harassed by the endless bureaucrats of government to the point where it has crippled everyone financially. And people like Governor DeWine does not even remotely care or understand why people are upset. It may be little things like soft drink manufactures not being able to get aluminum out of Mexico to make cans of soda to meet demand, or employees electing to not come back to work because they are getting too much money from the government to stay home and they don’t want to wear a worthless mask just to have the right to earn a living. Government stuck itself into the economic game as an unqualified regulator and now they have made a tremendous mess out of things and greatly crippled people’s lives—yet because of the measurements of government, they think they are heroes. It’s the most dysfunctional thing I’ve ever seen and to see it up close, its even worse.

To me its obvious that politicians like DeWine, the ones especially who have supported the government lockdowns and intruding on the free market with ridiculous Marxist regulations, that they are jealous of private industry. They know they have to dance like monkeys to get donations for their next campaigns so they relish the times when they get revenge on those same people through regulatory compliance. They enjoy punishing big companies like Cedar Fair Amusements once they find they can control their entire yearly forecast and bring them to their knees begging for government to “let them make money.” Opening a business is just part of the story, the bulk of it that has been completely ignored is the need for a positive customer experience. That has been completely tossed away during Covid-19. This is why China has to steal all their intellectual property and why the Soviet Union only made one kind of car. This is why Cuba still drives 1950s era cars from the United States, because when the customer experience is bad in a free market economy, and all aspects of that economy have a wet blanket thrown over them by government regulations, then the entire industry is made less by the result. When customers start expecting everything to suck, they stop trying to be better than all the other options and so it goes, government turns private industry into the government experience where everything is terrible, customer service horrible, and the hopes of something better completely tossed out the window. Government has no idea how to conduct good customer relations because they think customers always have to come to them regardless of how good or bad they do. But private industry is always concerned about the customer experience, and that is what has been damaged the most over Covid-19. Its not enough to just be open. But the customer experience is what has suffered, and it is stunning that people like Mike DeWine doesn’t even remotely understand, nor does he care.
