Al Frankenstein Must Go: He helped write the rules–now he’s had his Anthony Weiner moment

Well, Al Franken—how are you feeling?  Are you comfortable? You know, you’ve been such a pain in the ass.  As a former writer for the very progressive Saturday Night Live and massive critic of Bill O’Reilly you now have to leave the senate.  Based on the radio interview that can be heard below by Leeann Tweeden, you sexually harassed her in a major way.  The proof is all there, it’s her audio testimony and she has pictorial evidence—so based on the rules of engagement that you helped create, you have to step down immediately.  You have to give up your Minnesota senate seat. You’ve called for other people who have done much less than you have to step down, so you have no other choice.  Have a listen to this interview.

I was always surprised that Al Franken won a senate seat based on his star power off SNL.  And his little 5’ 6” ass has been a progressive monstrosity since.  The way he spoke to Jeff Sessions just a few months ago is enough to make your skin crawl, so it is ironic that he is going down the same way he went up.  What’s that saying they have………………be careful how you treat people going up because you’ll see them again on the way back down.  Well, this whole episode is born out of that statement.  What did he think Leeann Tweeden was going to do now that the flavor of the day of all women is to talk about their miserable moments with their male counterparts in the entertainment industry—which Al Franken actually encouraged?  He knew these stories were out there.  He knew the pictures were out there. And he and Tweeden were not on speaking terms after that Afghanistan trip.  So what did he think was going to happen?

When Donald Trump said last year that what happened on that Access Hollywood bus way back in 2005 was just locker room talk, this is what he meant.  People pretended to be shocked by what he said, but everyone knows that the kind of talk he was engaged in was the type of thing everyone says when they think they are alone, especially with other guys.  Women talk the same way, only from their point of view which is the constant recipient of sexual advances.  If a woman is less than 130 pounds chances are she is getting hit on with sexual advances all the time so women have their way of dealing with that constant barrage.  But among men, they are always talking about women and their potential sexual statuses.  Is it disgusting—hell yes it is.  I personally hate it.  Its small-minded talk and really stupid things to think about, but most of the human population engages in it.  Nobody should have expected anything more out of Al Franken than what they got, which was a pervert from SNL hitting on a girl who was well out of his league and using his celebrity power to attempt to bed her.  He wrote the script, he set the stage and he figured from experience that he’d get somewhere with Leeann Tweeden if he put the moves on her during their tour.

Now that the flood gates are open women like Tweeden have every right to say what they are saying.  In her case I feel sorry for her.  In the case of the accusers of Roy Moore, Donald Trump—or even Bill O’Reilly I think the women were just seeking fame.  But in Tweeden’s case she was just telling a story from the road and she has the pictures to prove it.  Should women have to sleep with producers and directors in entertainment to work in the industry?  No.  But do they, yes—it is pretty much expected. It wasn’t always that way but over the last 50 or 60 years it has been prevalent.  The question is, should women be free of this constant barrage, because that’s not how it has been.  People just didn’t talk about it.  Ironically people like Senator Franken have established that anyone who does engage in this activity should immediately step down and remove themselves from existence.  I’m good with that.  I can personally live up to that high standard.  I think Donald Trump can too.  He may have talked guy talk with the other guys, but he’s a pretty sensitive guy and he seems to have always treated women respectfully when dealing with them.  His Access Hollywood tape was more of commenting on his shock that women seem to throw themselves at celebrities which he was at that time with his new Apprentice show.  And he’s right, women do, and when they do, they really can’t come back later and claim sexual harassment—which in many of the cases we are hearing about now, it was great for them when they were young women in their 20s, like Ashley Judd—who used sex to secure roles.  Now that they are bitter bitches in their 40s that nobody wants to have sex with, of course now they can afford to have righteous indignation—because that’s the only way they can get attention.  When Madonna said she thought about blowing up the White House after Trump was elected, that is the beaten up old hag talking that men used to line up to have sex with.  Back then Madonna controlled those men with just a flirt.  She can’t do that now.  Men now look at her and her long line of lovers and think—gross.

But Leeann Tweeden is different.  She seems like a nice girl who went on a tour to inspire the troops and Franken had a crush on her the way any adolescent boy might have fantasies about his chances with the best looking girl in his junior high school.  Most of what I heard on that tape was pretty innocent stuff from a biological point of view.  But if you apply the progressive standard to it which Franken himself helped mold—then he should be executed on the spot for using the power of his position to attempt to force sex on an innocent woman.  Right?  It’s only fair.  I mean you can’t have it both ways.  You can’t go after Republicans for sexual harassment and seek to get them impeached or removed from office, then get to hide behind some committee hearing when we find out that someone like Franken has been guilty of far worse.  He has officially lost his moral authority and I suspect that we’ll come to learn that many more members of congress will have similar stories being tossed onto the heap before it’s all said and done.  And if that’s the kind of world we want to live in, I’m fine with it.  I have two daughters and a wife that would love to not be sexual harassed every five minutes when they are not in my company.  I can live in that world just fine, but can everyone else?

Al Frankenstein as Donald Trump is appropriately calling him as this crisis is exploding is having his Anthony Weiner moment.  If you’ll remember dear reader when he was first in congress Weiner was a firebrand using the mask of righteousness to conceal his sexual addiction.  He used his power as a congressman to increase his access to women. He’s now in jail falling from being a phone call away from Hillary Clinton and the top movers and shakers of the Democratic Party.  Now he’s sitting in a jail cell for his sexual addictions. What we are learning particularly about Democrats is that they are guilty mostly for which they find fault in others.  They call Republicans Nazis because it is actually their ideology which nurtured along the most terrifying form of fascism and tyranny the world has ever seen. They call Republicans racist because it was southern Democrats who actually formed the KKK and stood against assimilating Africans into American culture.  And now they have been trying to paint Trump and many others with a brush of sexual misconduct for which Democrats are most guilty of themselves.  In Franken’s case, he has done far worse than anything we have heard to date, writing scripts that allow him to forcibly kiss women and groping them while they sleep where there are pictures that prove it giving us all the evidence we could ever possibly need.  If Bill O’Reilly had to lose his job at Fox News over just allegations, Franken has much worse coming to him.  And he deserves it—as do many others who will soon fall in his wake.

The Most Effective Argument in favor of Guns in Soceity: What everyone misses about the need for the Second Amendment–Institituions cannot be trusted

The support for an armed society is a philosophical one, not one of just emotional attachments to tradition. There is a reason the Second Amendment was inserted into the Bill of Rights and was so important to the Anti-Federalists in the 1790-time period of American history that is just as relevant today as it was then. The human race has not “progressed to a certain level where a one world government like the utopian Star Fleet Command is running everything on earth—and it never will. The reason is that there are traits to human beings that so long as they exist prevent the complete trust of individuals into all institutions created by society. To properly have a check and balance against absolute power, individuals must have the ability to overthrow their institutions before they get too big, and too power hungry to handle the affairs of civilization properly. Guns are that fine line of control which keeps our institutions in check with the fear always in the back of their minds that at any moment the population could remove them from office under armed rebellion and replace them. The issue has never been about “assault weapons” or “bump stocks.” It’s about the nature of people and what they do when they have power over other people. Those who want more power over more people obviously are those who support removing guns from society—to whatever degree. But the essence of the argument is that we would be fools to completely trust any institution created by the minds of man. The gun allows us to manage that power we give those institutions—and without that management assistance, institutions by their nature spiral out of control and become oppressive. Because at the heart of most humans who crave power is a laziness that always retreats to default mode and would rather run society as a bunch of compliant automatons rather than free thinking variables.

To put the issue in the most simplistic forms I will provide an example that I have used actually quite often. To provide a little background about myself I am a person who loves personal freedom likely more than most people, and I have always built my life around the ability to be free of institutional control. In my youth I was a martial artist and had developed the personal ability to defend myself no matter what was presented. Growing up I never had the feeling that anybody could “kick my ass” and I still feel that way. I don’t care how big the person is or how skilled, I made a point physically to be the top of the pecking order in regard to fighting in hand to hand combat and that allowed me a certain freedom to think properly about these matters of institutional control. But melee weapons are one thing, if a person approaches you with a gun physical confrontation is not the best way to deal with a threat like that. You really need a gun no matter how skilled you may be in disarming people. The best way to prevent a threat is to show them you have a gun and give them a choice as to whether or not to continue.

For a short while I was a repo man in my early years and I was shot at on occasion. That was back in the old days before there were the kind of rules that there are today. Back then the bank would let you do quite a few things to recover an asset, so I know what it feels like to be a bit of a thief sneaking up on a car to take it away from a hostile person likely armed. I even know what it feels like to break into a home knowing a person was armed to get the car keys. This wasn’t an accepted practice but it’s always better to ask for forgiveness than permission when dealing with bureaucracies and if I could get my hands on the keys, it meant doing less damage to the asset to retrieve it so breaking into a home to get the keys was forgivable—if you were successful. But people did get mad and they did shoot to kill. So in speaking about this kind of stuff I understand it from both sides very well.

I’ve also been to Europe and can report that the people there are pretty much a defeated people. Their gun laws and progressive societies have destroyed individual initiative and expectation. They live in small homes that are too expensive and do not have an expectation of personal sanctity the way that Americans do—and this really does trace back to gun ownership. In Europe the chances of being robbed in your home are much, much greater than in the United States because thieves know that nobody is armed in the home. They think nothing of breaking and entering to steal a person’s possessions even if they are there—because being shot is not on their minds. If they have managed to get a gun off the black market then they suddenly have become the strongest person around and they use that force to their advantage—because that’s what most human beings do when they acquire power—they tend to abuse it unless they are governed by a personal constitution of morality and valor. Without those elements they become tyrants quickly—whether they control a vast institution, or are just petty street criminals. It’s all the same human dysfunction on the micro or macro levels.

The person who trained me in martial arts during my teenage years was a thug. He was a lot like the karate school owner in the movie Karate Kid. His sole purpose for the school was to teach young strong males to be killers so that they’d go to tournaments and win trophies for his wall, so that he could then charge high fees to provide instruction. I thought of him as an evil person and he eventually was busted for many crimes and did jail time, but I learned a lot from the guy. I learned that it wasn’t hard to kill a person with your hands, in fact it was pretty easy and once you learned the basics you had leverage over every other human being that didn’t know that information. Most of his students went on to become terrors—and they got into nearly as much trouble as he did. Once they had the power to literally kill with their bare hands they had no fear of anybody and they began to be bullies that nobody could stop. It was the same concept as the robber with a gun who had something everyone else was missing. Outlawing a gun doesn’t change the nature of dominating others as a human predilection. Until that problem is solved, where humans wish to dominate others, whether it’s the liberal using institutionalism to control individual behavior, or a common street thug beating people over the head with a pipe to steal $25 dollars—the desire to rule over other individuals is the problem that must be solved. No institutional laws will have any effect—because the problem at its core is an institutional issue.

More times than even I can recollect I’ve used the threat of violence to keep peace. If someone is robbing you the way to handle it best is to say, “Hay man,” show them the gun under your jacket “you don’t have to die today. I won’t even call the cops. If you keep walking you can go to sleep tonight.” It’s that simple. Just say that, have the gun to show them—even if they are pointing one at you, letting them know you have a gun and are willing to use it, will most of the time cause them to leave you alone. These things don’t happen like they do in the movies. Criminals want a nice easy hit on someone. They don’t want to die or risk injury. If they have to risk that with you, they’ll move on most of the time. That also goes with hired killers. I’ve also known several of them as well, and deep down inside they are just people like anybody else. They don’t want to die. They know that just because you shoot someone they don’t die instantly. They know if you have a gun on you that you could still shoot them even if wounded. Because of guns in our country, we see much less crime than we otherwise would because nobody really knows who has guns in the house and who doesn’t. That secures our private property in the correct way and allows for Americans to think differently than other people around the world do because private property and ownership is the essence of personal responsibility—and protecting those elements makes for a much more civil discourse at the macro level.

Any person advancing gun control measures of any kind, even the “bump stock” debate after the Las Vegas massacre are avoiding the real issue in human failure in dealing with one another. Human desire to control other humans and their thoughts is the problem and until respect at a fundamental level is established for individual sanctity, violence will always be a threat. Those threats often come from institutions because responsibility for individual behavior is disguised. However, gun ownership is more than just symbolic, they are a proper check against the human tendency to inflict through force beliefs of one group against another. The gun creates a level playing field and forces people to respect each other—which is the first foundation of proper human interaction. There is a fine line between fear and respect, and the gun helps society get there better than any law that human beings could invent. And that is the key to a properly managed society. There is nothing barbaric about gun ownership. In fact, the concept is quite a sophisticated one because it takes the human race to a level of thought that has never been achieved before in the history of the world, and the United States is the evidence that it works. Not in the presence of an active gun culture, but in the type of society and options that Americans enjoy that nobody else around the world has. Guns are key to advancing our civilization in very positive ways because they take the bullies out of contention and allow average people to rule their own lives however they see fit. And if their institutions get out of control, then people have guns to retake control, and that is the most important thing of all. Just having the gun does wonders. Hopefully nobody ever needs to use them. But I can say from personal experience that guns work very well at keeping things……..peaceful. Better than anything else ever could hope to. Institutions want to believe they can, but they can’t. They can’t control individual behavior at its core. They can influence it, but they can’t manage it without the occasional madman emerging to destroy innocent people over any little thing.

When I hold a gun, or buy a new gun, I am making an investment into the kind of human freedom that only a gun can provide. And that is not a symbol of violence. It’s a declaration of independence that is philosophical and unique to our species.

When the Lights Go Out: The difference between “us” and “them”

Did you ever notice how when either in a school or a place of business that when a storm comes and knocks out the lights some people clap? Then there are others—usually an extreme minority who try to continue to do their work next to a flashlight or a candle?  This has always been a baffling concept to me, that people would be so happy to be relieved of their work that they could return their minds to a thoughtless existence talking about some television show, new pop song, or about some peer who isn’t present in the form of gossip.  People who clap when the lights go out are people who are essentially afraid of action and thought because they don’t want the responsibility of accomplishment.  They are essentially lazy people who struggle through life avoiding problems until the ultimate happens—all their problems catch up and destroy their life.  Then they wonder why they are unhealthy, unhappy, and why nobody wants to be around them—because they are essentially negative people.

People who clap when the lights go out are people who are looking for an excuse not to live—which essentially makes them evil—(evil is live spelled backwards). They are anti-life and are the type of people who can’t be trusted with much of anything and are always looking to make trouble.  Typically they are second-handers in life—those who live by the actions of others but usually they disguise their tendencies behind little emergencies like the lights going out, or they had a flat tire, or that it was raining.  They work harder at not doing things than actually doing things because they find the threat of responsibility much more terrifying than the work in avoiding things.

You can often tell who will clap when the lights go out by those people who complain that it’s “Monday” or utter at 4 PM on a Friday, “TGIF.” They are the same people who put “hump day” on their Facebook posting revealing that they are happy the week is half over.  These are the people in life who make it terrible for all those who enjoy life and have an optimistic view of it because it’s those who work hard even when the lights go out that carry the rest of those idiots while they hide their tendency toward inaction behind an emergency situation which they are always silently praying for.

These same people are the ones who say, “the devil is in the details,” because they hope to slow things down by getting everyone to look for that devil so they can stand to the side and avoid action. If they stall long enough maybe something will get pushed to Monday buying them a weekend to avoid the inevitable.  And on Friday night they drink to forget and to ease the pain of their life from the pressure they always feel they are under.  Those kids who grow up in school hoping the bus gets stuck in the snow, or clapping when there is a power outage are the same people who grow up drunk on the weekends because they can’t hack the pressure of living, and they don’t have the fortitude within them to always look for ways to solve problems no matter how bad things are.

People who like to work so much that they don’t let emergencies stop them are the people who make America great.  It is not the people who clap when the lights go out.  It is the people who look for a lighter in their pocket or a flashlight so they can continue reading or writing something when darkness arrives.  They don’t let the darkness stop them.  They work on weekends, they work in the middle of the week and Monday is just another day to them.  A democracy will never work in any political system so long as there are people who clap when the lights go off, and there are only one or two people who pull out their flashlights to continue working.  We are not all equal.  Some of us look for every reason to not do something while others try to squeeze every moment of life for the richest possible of goodness available.  Those who insist otherwise are those who clap when the lights go out.  Or hope for a snow day to keep them from having to attend work.

There is a reason that professional sports are so popular. Sitting in the stands while other people perform on the field is the prefect job for people who clap when the lights go out.  All they have to do is just sit there and watch other people do things—and that makes them happy.  Some of them are so arrogant that they believe all that is required of them is that they buy a jersey and attend a game and that they have somehow made an investment toward the success of that franchise.  When their team losses they get very upset and speak as if they made some grand investment that would justify their anger.  But they are just sitting in the stands waiting for the lights to go out so they can hide the fact that they are fearful of life, and always hoping that they can jump on to someone elses success at the last moment and share in the heroic efforts.  When a professional team is winning these fans say “we.”  When those teams are losing they say, “they.”

Government is filled with people who love it when the lights go out. They love it when there are funding talks and government shut downs—because they like to not work and have someone else to blame for their lack of productivity.  They hide in bureaucracy so that nobody would ever blame them for doing nothing because the invented details of muddled thinking allow them to appear majestic when they are essentially cowardly people waiting for death to ultimately take way the responsibility for living from them.  They aim to slide through life from excuse to excuse until it all ends and they can then blame God, or even the universe for their sad, pathetic existence.

That anything happens at all it is from the private sector where there are handfuls of people who still work when the lights go out, or whether its Wednesday or Saturday—every day hold the promise of something new if only they can solve this, this and this problem.  In fact solving problems is what makes them happy which is why they look for a light when they go out to continue working.  It drives them.  It is they who make the lights work in the first place.  Without those types of people there would be perpetual darkness and a string of excuses from here until the dawn of mankind.  Nothing would ever happen because always a majority of the people clap when the lights go out and only a very few look for alternatives to continue their work.

It is quite obvious what is going on with the Trump presidency—Trump and his family are a light. They always have been and the people of their core associations are of the same type.  But Washington D.C. has a culture that is nearly entirely made up of people who always have clapped when the lights went out for whatever reason.  And those people don’t like it that Trump is in the White House putting light everywhere and making people work even when the lights are turned off, and there are tornado warnings as well.  Trump won’t let those who like to hide in the dark continue doing so, so they are doing everything they can to push back at the light.  And that’s just not acceptable.  Trump was elected by people who like to work to push away the influences of those who don’t from ruining the world further.  It’s no longer fashionable to clap when the lights go out and no longer allowed to be one of those people who use chaos to hide their laziness.  Those people have been exposed and are now required to act or be run over—and that is essentially what is driving our world today.  And that’s not going to change.

Gun Grabber Leland Yee Going to Jail over Weapons Trafficking: Why we can’t trust government but down the barrel of a potential gun


On Monday June 20th 2016 a host of senate democrats attempted to use the Orlando shooting to pressure GOP leadership into gun control measures on Capital Hill.  Of course, thankfully because of the Republican majority and the powerful NRA their four proposals are going nowhere.  But they’ll keep trying just like their buddy Leland Yee has for years out in California.  The potential attempt had me fueled into a fired up fissure on Saturday when my friend Matt Clark brought up the topic of gun control up on his WAAM radio show.  I had to call at the 30 minute mark and join the vigorous conversation Matt was hosting.

During the call I brought up the news story shown below, where liberal Leland Yee—a gun control champion in California was busted for trafficking in “foreign firearms” on the black market.  Go ahead, read the article for yourself below from The Washington Post:

On the surface, the story of Leland Yee looks like a precipitous fall from grace.

The 67-year-old had risen steadily in the ranks of Bay Area politics since the late 80s, when he was elected to the San Francisco School Board. He then went on to sit on the city’s Board of Supervisors and in the state Assembly. The latter role saw him become the first Asian American speaker pro tem in 2004, making him the second-highest ranking Democrat in the California assembly at the time.

From 2006 onwards, Yee served as a state senator and was plotting a secretary of state campaign when his political visions were curtailed by a federal indictment in March 2014.

The arrest swept Yee and his associate Keith Jackson, 51, up in charges alongside some of the city’s most notorious characters, notable among them Chinatown gangster Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow.

Yee also discussed buying weapons overseas and bringing them to the U.S. with two associates and an undercover agent. He accepted $6,800 and a list of arms for purchase in the Philippines.

The maneuvers were not only illegal, but also in stark contrast to what he had long purported to stand for.

Yee told CBS two years before he was arrested: “It is extremely important that individuals in the state of California do not own assault weapons. I mean that is just so crystal clear — there is no debate, no discussion.”

As a legislator, Yee supported strict gun control laws and was named to the Brady Campaign’s Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll.

The calamitous epilogue to Yee’s career, then, seems to be an abrupt about-face. During his campaigns, Yee had styled himself as an outsider removed from the corruption that plagued San Francisco governments past.

“My parents didn’t encourage me to go into politics at all,” he told Hyphen magazine in 2011. “There was a stereotype in the Chinese community that sees politics with suspicion. Politicians aren’t honorable, they’re corrupt and unsavory.”

Some members of the public have expressed disappointment over his conviction, but many more think the five-year sentence is fair (if not too light) for someone who has admitted to abusing his position.

Let me just say this much, there are no circumstances where more government equates to more prosperity.  By nature, human beings fail when they have too much power and Leland Yee is a fine example of the same type of corruption we are learning about in Brazil, Venezuela and everywhere that socialism is the political philosophy of the masses.  America must have guns—unlimited guns—so that our society can have the means to keep government from becoming all-powerful and ultimately following in the footsteps of liberals like Leland Yee.  Every gun grabbing politician speaking to federal representatives in the wake of the Orlando massacre are potential Leland Yees.  Many of them may be well-intentioned people, but all of them have the potential to become like Yee.  What makes America different is that we do have guns, and we can if there is no other option; use them to protect ourselves from an out-of-control government.  And by the sound of things now, it would seem that we are almost out of other options.

Donald Trump’s Presidential Strategy: Hillary will soon be begging for it all to end

Apparently there are some out there who are worried that Hillary Clinton is up on Donald Trump in the polls and that there is a risk of her winning the presidency completing the long-held plan by progressives to destroy America from within.   I know it’s scary, after all most of the media is in the bag for Hillary, along with Hollywood, the music industry, every public education institution, and every public sector union—and by the time you add up all those numbers, conservatives like you and I are in the extreme minority.  But—Trump has a plan and he is fulfilling it.  With only Hillary and the failed Obama legacy left between him and the presidency, he won’t allow himself to lose easily.  In fact, I am sure he will do anything and everything to win and he will start with her prime weakness—which as of June 15th, 2016—he is already exploiting.  Hillary is entitled and used to having things given to her—and she has assumed that the media would give her the presidency just because she’s a woman.  Trump is about to exploit her expectations to his advantage—just watch.

I’ve had the fortune to be in a lot of fights with people over the years—and many of the times the people were bigger and stronger than I was.  But unlucky for them which has always been the case—100% of the time—I was always smarter.   When a big hulking creature wanted to fight 7 times out of 10 they smoked cigarettes—because they were young and wanted to look tough so it usually fit their overall persona—so I’d know from the start of the fight that within 30 seconds, they’d start huffing and puffing, gasping for air.  That’s when you unleash on them a fury they can’t defend and by minute 1 minute 30 seconds, they were bloody heaps begging for an end to the conflict.  That’s when you hit them hard and make it so that they never think of picking on anybody—or fighting anybody, ever again.

Trump has Hillary right where he wants her, on the defensive, responding to his every attack.  He’s in Barack Obama’s head—clearly, forcing the last days of the current POTUS begging the collective Republican Party to come to his aid.  But there is nobody who can help them—either Obama or Hillary.  Trump is a machine who will run day and night for the next four months and in the last quarter as Hillary is gasping for air, the fatal blow will drop knocking her not only out of the race, but out of politics forever—in disgrace.  That is how Trump does things.  I understand that type of thinking—it is how winners, win—even when they are outmatched by sheer size and numbers.

Trump has campaign stops all over the nation scheduled during a time when the candidates are typically resting a bit before the summer surge toward their respective conventions.   Trump is on TV every day and speaking to thousands of people all over the country literally every day and he could do that pace likely for the rest of his life.  True, Trump just turned 70 years old, but he works like young man in his twenties and he can beat that old hag Hillary with sheer force.  She thought it was difficult to keep up with Bernie Sanders who at times had Hillary sounding like a haggard old worn out woman.  She won’t be able to keep up with the pace of Trump and it won’t take long for the fatigue to set in.

If you’ve ever watched a marathon, Hillary is like those runners who jump out to an early lead sprinting along wearing herself out.  In her case she can afford to because she has been told that all she has to do to become POTUS is show up at the finish line—because everything else is all worked out.  But a quarter way through the race, fatigue starts setting in and they begin feeling that tightness in their muscles and the overwhelming desire to stop to take a break.  That’s usually when the smarter runners overtake the early sprinters. By the Fourth of July, Trump will be fresh on Hillary’s heels watching her wear down and she’ll begin struggling to keep running.  Her old saggy ass will start showing the signs, her shoulders will slump, the bags under her eyes will fill with a few more doughnuts eaten on the road to give her instant energy—fake energy to continue looking good for the cameras.  That’s when she’ll realize she doesn’t have enough gas in the tank to beat Trump and the media will begin to grudgingly admit the problem amongst themselves.  Then she’ll get hit with one of the most boisterous Republican conventions in history.   Then following that will be a major motion picture called Hillary’s America and the low information voters will then discover things about her that they didn’t know.  That’s when Trump will really get started.  Daily he will beat on Crooked Hillary and the media won’t have an answer.  Obama will get even more defensive as his days in the White House come to a close and a silent desperation will begin to set in.

By September and October, the ragged, hag Crooked Hillary will limp into the presidential debates and Trump will slaughter her with wit and his knack for speaking off the cuff of his sleeve leaving her completely off message, and script which is her vulnerability.  That is when she’ll sink like a rock.  She’ll be exhausted and begging for an end to it.  Then Trump will hit her so hard that it will end her forever.

So get ready, this is going to be a lot of fun for those of us on the conservative side who have simply had enough and we’re not going to take it anymore.  Our time is coming for a change and I’m not planning to be graceful about it.

The rediculous ‘House of Cards’ Gay Agenda: Being a lion among sheep

Do you remember several weeks ago when I stated that my wife and I were done with watching the Netflix series, House of Cards because of the gratuitous sex—particularly the three-way at the end of season two which featured some gay sex by Frank Underwood and his secret service agent shared by his wife?  Well, we decided to give it a second chance because I was interested in the politics part of it and was relieved to find that season three seemed to put less emphasis on the sex.   After all, Frank Underwood had become the President of the United States and there wasn’t much time for power climbing and the sex that is often used to serve as rungs on that ladder.  However, there had been, and continued throughout all of season three a gay subplot to the new President—a soft side that craved the love of men.  This utterly made me sick because it was so misplaced as a human emotion that it left me feeling like the whole point of the House of Cards series wasn’t to convey politics, but to serve as a Trojan Horse of gay advocacy by presenting those types of plot points to a confused society hoping to advance the rainbow sentiments of guys who like to stick parts of themselves into a dirty ass.  By the end of season three, Frank Underwood was having a touching moment with his biographer and the two were holding hands like a couple of girls and my wife and I burst out laughing because of house stupid the scene was. The gay agenda was clear and House of Cards was attempting to normalize it—and it wasn’t working with us.

I’ve been saying it for a long time, when a motion picture company thinks that it will make one of its heroes gay, or Disney thinks that it will put out some musical featuring a gay couple that will make the kind of box office money that Frozen did—those executives should be fired for putting their companies at risk—because those movies will bomb in a theater.  Regarding House of Cards, it’s free—so it’s not much skin off my back to turn the show off.  It’s part of my subscription fee and I’m free to watch anything on Netflix—so I can literally vote in favor of the many other decisions.  But to drop good money on a movie or song that features gay sex as the driver—it’s just not going to happen no matter how much artists like Bruce Springsteen attempt to normalize it.  Gay sex isn’t normal—particularly with men.  I can see women having non sexual touchy relationships with other women, but desiring intercourse just doesn’t make biological sense and has to be evolved along the lines of some abnormality rooted in psychosis.  I can even understand when good friends have close relationships where sex isn’t even a factor of their relationship and they prefer each other’s company.  But the premise that closeness to another human being leads directly to sex is just a preposterous thing—and it’s simply not true.

Now we know emphatically why public schools and other social networks have been attempting to emasculate men for several decades now.  Now we know why men have been told that it’s OK to cry, and to share their emotions—because society established by an aristocratic political class of global micromanagers had fantasies of population control using gay rights as a means to manipulate the masses to stay focused on very primal instincts so that populations would be easier to control.  By changing the role of the sexes, progressives could then take the women out of the home and away from their children allowing the “state” to raise the following generations gradually.  It has always been the long plan of communism brewing for over a century in America to make everyone equal and in the House of Cards sexually, everyone is.  Frank Underwood was introduced as an open marriage womanizer which was fine with his wife so long as there was some tactical objective to the sex.  But then there was some affair that Frank had while attending the Citadel in South Carolina—where he had a gay lover—LOL.  This gay lover is in the background and the series kind of danced around the issue until it came back up again with full hand holding and finger caressing by the end of season three with Frank’s biographer.  There was no kissing in that scene but it was still radically foreign to me and was uncomfortable—it totally ruined the premise of the entire series.  My wife felt the same way.  It wasn’t “homophobia” that was driving that discomfort, it was fact that neither one of us has ever had any gay urges and the whole thing seemed comical to us.  I can honestly say that I’ve never seen some other male and thought, hmmmm, I’d like to “touch” that person to be closer to them.  It’s just not part of our human experience and it was strange.

Sex exists for one reason—biologically, and that is to procreate and continue the human race.  The point of all the emotions and the elements that the different sexes like in each other point toward that ultimate goal.  Sex is not necessarily a byproduct of a decent and healthy relationship.  You can have a close friend if you are mentally healthy and not want to have intercourse with them—which is something that House of Cards completely ignores—which is why the gay agenda is so ridiculous.  Gay sex is a primal behavior that requires a lack of sophistication to endure.  Intellectuals tend not to waste much time on sex because the very act itself—the whole mating game just takes too much time—and smart people tend not to waste time.  This whole notion of equality among the sexes is just a part of their communist agenda to put in people’s minds an eventuality of “state” control where sexual fulfillment is not rooted in procreation—because population control of such a “state-run” society is highly desired for resource management.  But it’s not natural, gay sex requires some mental deficiency to be successful.  That mental deficiency might be deep insecurities placed upon a mind at a young age, or abuse from a trusted family member—or it could be that a child was intellectually born broken—by no fault of its own.  But it’s not “normal.”  That doesn’t mean we treat them badly—but that doesn’t mean that we normalize our entire society for them either.

There is an old Joseph Campbell story that he used to tell in his lectures about “the lion and the sheep” that covered this difficult topic very nicely.  A young lion was abandoned by his family at birth and left alone in the wildness to survive on its own.  It comes along to a pack of sheep that it sees grazing and conjugating near a watering hole so it joins them.  The sheep of course are scared at first because lions eat sheep as carnivorous biological entities.  But when they realize that the lion is only a baby, they quickly warm up to the threat—because they are stupid sheep—collective masses of grazers.  Well, the little lion grows up among the sheep and thinks of itself as one of them.  It grazes like they do and drinks from the same watering hole and behaves like them.  Well, one day a magnificent lion—a strong male with a full mane of hair attacks the herd to hunt and in so doing spots the fellow lion.  He goes up to the creature and asks him what he’s doing.  Of course the young lion now grown up and living among the sheep can only reply, BaaaAAAaaaaaaAAAaa.  It doesn’t know any other term because it’s been raised by sheep and the little thing had been having a hard time because obviously it has a body that craves carnivorous substance to survive, so it’s become a sickly creature.  The old lion says to the young one, “Hey, you aren’t one of them; you should be hunting with me.  Look in the watering hole at your reflection and you’ll see it for yourself.  So the young lion does so and realizes that it was true, he wasn’t like the sheep, and that he was in fact a lion.  Of course the old lion slaughtered a few sheep and brought some meat to the confused young lion and said, “eat this, you’ll feel better.”  The young lion did and as soon as his system had meat in its body it began to make a difference, he immediately felt better, stronger, and less inclined to follow the others around in a herd.  Before long the young lion was able to let out a nice roar and to begin hunting like other lions and to take his rightful place as king of the pecking order within the food chain.

Young males in our society currently are like that little lion, they have been told by their school teachers, their media culture, and even their governments that gay sex is perfectly alright.  They were lied to.  Like the lion growing up among the sheep the reason society told them that was to make it easier to lead them to the slaughter-house eventually and control those free spirits by behaving in a herd.  Once males embarrass themselves with something, they are much easier to control socially by those who desire such things.  But gayness isn’t natural, it’s a learned behavior designed to manipulate mankind into a kind of herd animal that is far easier to manage than a bunch of roaming testosterone driven ego maniacs.  But I’m here to tell you people, look in the water, realize what you are, and turn your life back toward your biological impulses.  Don’t act like a sheep if you are a human being, be a lion.  If you are a man, be a man—don’t sit around crying or hugging other guys.  If you are a woman—be a woman—play the role and enjoy it.  Be what you are and don’t let political philosophies manipulate you into being a herd animal for their benefit.

House of Cards is ridiculous.  The kind of sex they portray in the show is not normal.  It’s an invented creation designed to advance a collectivist oriented social agenda.  But men, real men, do not behave like Frank Underwood.  They don’t seek to hold the hand of other men and they don’t do all that gay singing either.  Only broken people who were taught from an early age to be sheep—we can have sympathy for such people, but we can’t destroy our species to relieve them of guilt either—seem inclined to gayness.  We are not all in this together—all for one, and one for all.  We are in this game to win, and to be the top of the food chain—and to be human.  In the game of life we even can eat the lions because we are smart enough to invent tools to kill them if we so desire.  So we should be smart enough to think above sexual impulses and to behave as our sexes dictate—and those established biological rules dictate that men just don’t show emotion to other men in a way that weakens other aspects of their relationships with one another.  If you are a man and you want to show another man that you like them, punch them in the arm.  But don’t stroke their finger like Frank Underwood did in House of Cards at the end of season three.  That was just stupid—forced—and biologically improbable.

When the Train Horn Blows: Heroin addiction in Butler County, Ohio–NO NEW TAXES!

We live near a railroad and deep in the night, trains let out their horns announcing that it is approaching a place where it intersects with the road.  The road I live on is rural compared to most in Butler County and it’s a dead-end within a heavily wooded area.  My wife is a housewife so she’s home most of the time and has studied this behavior for years so she knows with some certainty that when the train lets out it’s whistle—not always—but often enough—that the signal has been given to pick up the packages that were thrown off the train near that particular intersection—day and night.  Within those packages are smuggled drugs and other villainous items carried over vast distances by small time traffickers who don’t want to risk the larger shipments through the highway system by tractor-trailer.

My wife and I have some experience with this stuff—we got ourselves into a lot of trouble in Mason, Ohio several years back when we exposed a drug network of marijuana distribution for which the police department was involved in.  Of course the media didn’t want to cover the story because they viewed us as nosy busy bodies poking into other people’s business.  Even the mayor at the time was involved—I sent him video of the drug transactions when the police failed to act—and it just caused us more trouble, not less.  You can’t do much when the law is working with organized crime to sell drugs to a suburbanite neighborhood.  If the law refuses to help good people, the actions at that point are very limited.  Now 16 years later the social trend is even worse, and more libertarian.  Drug tolerance has established, first in our education system, then through our media outlets—movies, video games, and music—then political acceptance of it and the obvious side money that can be made by turning eyes away from the crimes, a landscape of drug use that has made Butler County, Ohio one of the most ravaged drug infested areas of our country—more people die of heroin overdoses than of anything else.  It’s the biggest killer that nobody wants to talk about—because so many people are associated with a little bit of guilt in letting it happen.

As I sit on my porch and watch pick-up trucks drive by my house after retrieving the shipments down by the railroad tracks I get more than a little frustrated.  The law protects those punks from people like me, but the law doesn’t protect me from them.  They are free to bring the vile influence of drugs into my community because nobody wants to stop them.  The police only care when they want to make headlines with a drug bust.  The politicians don’t want to admit that there is a problem, and society loves to get “high” off narcotics—everything from alcohol to heroine—with marijuana use making up the muddy middle.  If there were any justice in the world we’d have a legal system where I could be deputized to just go round-up all these bastards and stop the flow from external outlets—since the police won’t or can’t do it.  I’d do it gladly.   Then if we would defund any public school that takes a soft stance on drug consumption—we might start to turn the tide on the user end.  If a teacher gets caught promoting drugs in any way—they should be fired and the school they worked for penalized with reduced funding.  And anybody caught promoting drugs in a social context should be ridiculed to the ends of the earth.   Here’s why according to the Journal News of Butler County.

The MHARS board has determined it needs about $3.5 million more a year to deal with addictions. Taxpayers already agreed to fund more mental health services by approving a five-year, 1-mill mental health levy on March 15, but dealing with the county’s opiate epidemic will require more funds, officials said.

“We looked at practically addressing the opiate epidemic,” said Scott Rasmus, executive director of the MHARS board. “… It was around $3.5 million as we developed this business plan to address the opiate epidemic in a practical way in Butler County.”

More people died in Butler County from heroin-related overdoses in 2015 than suicides, traffic crashes, other accidents, homicides and undetermined causes combined, according to the Butler County Coroner’s Office.

Here’s my position on this whole drug problem.  It’s fine for people to have that stupid libertarian outlook on life—that “live and let live” nonsense about if people want to smoke dope, drink themselves into oblivion, or even smoke cigarettes its their right to live as free people and do as they please—even though I can smell a cigarette from a mile away—and it does bother me.  But the moment someone asks me for money in the form of taxes, then the community has made it my business.  I didn’t vote in favor of the 1 mill mental health levy—but it passed.  And now two weeks later the MHARS board is testing the waters with this 3.5 mill levy to deal with the aftermath of this irresponsible drug use which has been promoted by just about everyone from law enforcement to our entertainment culture.  Public schools instead of tackling this issue the way they used to with slogans and marketing against drug behavior has taken a more progressive approach which has exploded the use—so they caused the problem and the only way to fix it is to reverse the trend–not to fund the net result—which is drug addiction.  Giving money to addicts isn’t compassionate, it’s equitable to flushing money right down the toilet—because next year there will be more people dying of addiction—and the year after, even more.  It will continue until our society stops promoting drug use and weak mental behavior.

The answer to the problem isn’t more money to deal with the back of the problem; we have to deal with the front.  When the train blows its whistle, a cop should be there to bust the exchange, not sit up on RT 4 browsing the internet and talking to people on their phone waiting to bust somebody for speeding.   The Sheriff’s department should do a bust of the entire county and scoop up everyone known as a drug dealer.  Of course they’ll say that there isn’t room in their jails for all those people—which is why they’d say that they haven’t done the job up to now.  From their perspective the 3.5 mill levy that the MHARS board is requesting is a small cost compared to the cost of incarceration.  But, right is right—I’d be more prone to support increases in a police budget if they could actually arrest people and put them in jail. If people commit crimes—and drug dealing is a crime—then they should be in jail.

I have no sympathy for drug use or their dealings—I hate both the supplier and the customers.  I see no benefit to drugs, and I am certainly not a libertarian on this issue.  I don’t even like the look of people who might do drugs.  I may be the most conservative person in America on this issue and I understand that my views alone do not rule the world.  I watch the pick-up trucks with disdain as they hull their goods up from the railroad tracks secretly hoping that they will make some move against me that would allow me to confront them on a public road.  But so long as they keep their eyes forward and mind their own business, they can escape that wrath—and they do every week.  I know I am very outnumbered on this issue—and I respect the decisions of the people within my community.  We have a representative republic and decisions have been made at the ballot box to allow for our present circumstances, so I bite my tongue for the benefit of everyone.  But let me tell you this dear reader—DON’T ASK ME FOR ANY DAMN MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS SHIT!  If you want to fix the trouble—FIX IT. If the Sheriff’s department wants my help in solving the problem—I will volunteer in a heartbeat.  But don’t fund more of the problem—fix it at its source.  That is the only way forward.  And if you want to know where to start, listen for the train whistles around the countryside of Butler County and watch which cars leave those areas about 15 minutes later.  That’s when you will have an easy drug bust.  Prosecuting them and putting them in a crowded jail is another matter.  But at least the paper trail of bad behavior can be established to begin to solve the massive problem that drugs in Butler County truly is.
