Vote HELL No on the Butler County Safety Levy: It’s a money grab for ineffective school board members afraid to make hard decisions

Essentially if the school safety levy fails for the combined efforts of Fairfield schools, Hamilton, New Miami, Edgewood, and Monroe—Hamilton will vote to allow teachers to arm themselves. And the other school boards will have to follow because doing nothing simply isn’t an option. Out of Butler County, Ohio’s 10 school districts five of them are looking for this safety levy to hire more employees to keep the school boards from having to make a hard decision on how best to protect schools. At the core of the argument especially among young and inexperienced parents who have been taught all their lives that guns are bad, school boards are trying to appease them with a more centralized process. This involves spending millions of dollars on additional resource officers, mental health assessments and similar employee staffing increases which of course cost more money. Yet we know now from experience that the real solution is a more decentralized process where teachers can act as first responders the moment a crisis breaks out. And the good thing about that approach is that it doesn’t cost more money.

At the heart of the problem is that the basic assumption about public education is that it should not involve guns—because the aim of the progressive education philosophy is to live in a world where guns aren’t needed, value judgments are surrendered to equal rights and the people being educated are subjects of the state. Guns do not fit that view of the world. But in no way is that vision aligned with life in the real world, it’s an idea that mostly people who think politically left of center strive for. Most parents enroll their children in a school without thinking about politics or danger, because their primary concern is that their child is safe, and they want to believe that the schools themselves are free of any turmoil. School boards love to spend money, because its easy and when collections of people are in charge of administering finances, spending money is the only real way to get along because everyone loves to spend money, especially if it is other people’s money. So this issue is particularly challenging for school board members. The only way to make panicky parents happy is to give them more safety personnel, mental health specialists, social workers and counselors—because buying those types of employees give people the illusion of safety. It gives parents the feeling that the institution itself can keep their children safe, and as school board members yielding to that fantasy is safe in itself, until there is a real problem and a deranged shooter comes into the hallways that none of the new government employees could see coming.

Many of the gun rampages we have seen just this year, not to mention year’s past involved people who were considered mentally deranged in some form or another and the institutions of our society proved they were completely ineffective to stop such people from acting in a deadly way. To stop such a deranged mass murderer before the act occurs requires a decision based on judgments, and this is something that our modern institutions just don’t do, because they are so politically charged. Our modern institutions for which public schools are a part are more prone to trying to make a deranged lunatic feel more at home by attacking the normal kids into unnatural acts of compassion than in removing the threat from society by implementing a judgment that might seem unfair. So public schools are powerless to protect children from those who decide life isn’t worth living and they take to becoming mass murderers. By their reasoning, if they are going to kill themselves anyway, why not take a few people who made them feel terrible along the way pay too.

All the methods of implementing school safety as proposed by the Butler County safety levy is to deal with the aftermath of a mass shooting, not to prevent it from happening, and that is what needs to be clear about what people are voting for. There is only one way to ensure that a mass killer doesn’t gain an advantage over a student population of unarmed kids is to have teachers be the first responders to end the threat seconds after it has started, instead of minutes. That is the only way to properly protect students in a school from deranged killers which are becoming more common place these days from many influences. This idea that guns will be legislated out of existence is simply another liberal fantasy that they haven’t come to terms with yet. Guns are part of American life and children should learn to live with them, how to properly use them and what function they serve in the context of society. For instance, a serious course of study could be made of how the invention of gunpowder has changed the nature of human existence politically. Americans are living proof of that evolution, but the path to the political philosophy which created that American experiment is confirmation that no human society will retreat back into the compliance of a communist state, which as China is now and the Soviet Union used to be. Once people have tasted personal freedom, there is no way to erase it from their minds and over the last thousand years mankind has marched toward more personal freedom and much less aristocracy. Yet that is not what schools are teaching and that is also what makes them dangerous—because they are not aligned with the world around them.

For many the history of firearms and the nature of why people love them isn’t relevant to this discussion of school safety, but unfortunately for those utopian minded liberals, such an understanding is mandated for resolution on the safety issue. Is the security of a school more effective if it is more centrally controlled, or is it more effective if it is decentralized? The obvious answer of course is decentralization, we know that from lots of experience as a society. Guns are a part of world culture, they were invented out of human necessity to protect individual rights and that is why history says they are here to stay. We aren’t going to “uninvent” them. Therefore, to have a safe society we have to have a means to defend ourselves from people who may use them for malice and especially in education institutions, such instruction and awareness is paramount for tomorrow’s next generations. To defend them from harm, guns must be part of the solution, not mental health specialists, social workers, and counselors. Those are investments into what happens after a tragedy. We want to solve such problems before they become deadly.

Parents and teachers who are not comfortable with guns are going to have to adapt. Their sensitivities cannot be the contributing factors to making schools less safe due to their emotional condition toward guns. For those people I would suggest some classes on firearms, and to learn more about them aside from what they have seen in Hollywood productions over the last twenty years. Guns themselves are not dangerous, they are precision instruments which defend individual rights. If a teacher is responsible for the safety of a classroom and a crazed gunman is outside their door looking to commit mass murder against harmless, innocent people, that teacher should have the ability to end the threat right then and there. There won’t be time to call the police. A counselor or mental health specialist won’t stop a killer in the hall and talk them out of committing violence, only equal or superior firepower can do that. And that is the way of things in a free society—decentralized first responders who can slow down or stop a threat until the professionals arrive, just like in CPR. The only thing stopping this safety measure from being implemented for the good of everyone is the sensitivities of those who insist that guns not be part of a solution that only guns can solve. And not just guns, but guns in the hands of everyday people who are on the front lines and most prepared to take action when threats arise.

For many, obviously the case with the school boards of the participating schools, the responsibility for such security in their minds fall on the professionals we hire in society to deal with these kinds of things. But it is that over-reliance on institutional safety that many of these mass killers exploit to instigate their wrath. Guns are not a particularly American idea, but the personal use of them is, which means that in order to have a properly safe society that is living in harmony with the invention of guns, that personal participation of guns is something we should use to solve the gun violence problem. The solution is in decentralization within our institutions so to make them safer. More centralization will give us the opposite, the likelihood of more violence. If we really want to solve the problem of mass shootings, especially in public schools, and especially in Butler County which is the focus of this unique tax increase for the five-schools mentioned, then we need to allow teachers to be that layer of security. Throwing more money at more centralized control will do nothing but waste money, which the school boards participating in this horrendous tax and spend approach should have already had in their budgets to begin with. Ultimately what the school boards are asking for in this levy request is for Butler County voters to bail them out of having to make a hard decision—whether or not to cut some expenses out of their budget to hire more safety personnel, which is what they should be doing. Or in having to make a decision in arming teachers which would hurt the sensibilities of some neurotic parents who need an education of their own to get up to speed with the modern world. But nothing about the Butler County safety levy will make schools safer from a potential shooter who might want to attack schools and the children within it.

If I had loved ones in these schools, which I personally do, and a lunatic comes to that school with a gun to shoot up the innocent, I expect a teacher or administrator to be carrying a gun and to stop that situation before mass carnage occurs. There isn’t time to call for help when something like that happens. The situation must be dealt with right then and there. I don’t need a counselor to talk me through the grieving process after a bunch of kids have been killed. I don’t need a mental health professional to rationalize the mind of the killer before the smoke has left the scene of the crime. I just need the threat neutralized and that loved one home safe every day. And just having teachers carrying guns concealed during their professional business makes the chances of a safe day at school much more of a reality.
Vote not only NO on the Butler County Safety Levy, but………………………….HELL NO!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If Republicans Defend their Turf, Democrats Don’t Stand a Chance: The real story isn’t the midterms, it’s the biggest crime in history

It was a little surprising to see even Fox News playing the race horse game when it comes to the midterm elections of 2018. But then again they did the same thing with Hillary Clinton leading up to the 2016 elections where Donald Trump shocked the world by beating the other side in every way that you can imagine, and then some. Again Fox News was citing polling that has been released over the last few weeks and pointing to tightening races where Republicans should have these giant majorities, but appear to be in trouble, such as in Texas where Ted Cruz has a challenger. While it might make for good television, there isn’t much of a real race. There isn’t anything to be scared of. One look at the county-by-county map of the United States does not have a bunch of liberals suddenly growing out of nowhere. Of course there is always danger in these things and if conservatives take liberals for granted, Democrats do have a chance to win some seats. But that is only if conservatives stay home on election night and don’t participate. For liberals this 2018 election is a hail Mary for the end zone. For Republicans it’s a comfortable lead with only minutes left to play. Conventional wisdom usually prevails, but the horse race isn’t nearly as close as Fox News has been reporting.

So let me put your minds to ease dear reader, and do not take any of this as a reason to not participate. Take nothing for granted and make sure to vote. But let me just explain why the Democrats don’t have a chance. If you look at the great poker game, the liberals as they always do have shown all their cards in the early part of September. The Mueller investigation has done what it could do to hold back the Trump administration with chaos and instigated paranoia. Omarosa has played the role of Trojan spy and revealed her version of conspiracy from the White House, Bob Woodward’s book Fear has come out on this day to evoke a sense of incompetency at the Executive Branch to create just enough doubt to limit Trump’s road game for fellow Republicans, and then there is The New York Times piece from a supposedly anonymous author who works at a high level of Trump’s administration challenging his authority. Meanwhile Maxine Waters is running around beating the war drums of impeachment. ABC and The Washington Post are taking polls from friendly samplings to skew the results in the favor of Democrats and build the impression that liberalism is on the rise. That’s their game plan and its all they have.

Meanwhile when they step away from their media-controlled environments, such as Fox News who is willing to talk up the horse race for the sake of ratings, reality has something else to say. There are no crowds at the liberal events, nothing close to what Trump can generate. The reality of their efforts is that Americans just aren’t that liberal, especially in these days of a great economy and respect on the national stage of nations. America is doing great and people just aren’t excited about the no message Democrats. The only people excited about them are members of the media who need a good game on election night and the days leading up to it. Fox News honestly would like more people watching their news programs than their new acquisition of Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing. In their minds people can watch reruns after the election. For this fall’s ratings, its their news programing that matters. But to anyone who knows the poker game, the only cards left in the deck are not very good and the hand the Republicans have justifies perfectly shoving a huge amount of chips into the center of the table to lay down a big bet.

Just yesterday Representative Mark Meadows sent Hot Rod Rosenstein a letter demanding investigation into the really bad collusion revealed in the recent Peter Strzok and Lisa Page text messages leaking information into the media to derail Trump in the spring of 2017. Of course we all know that this occurred because like the leaker recently to the New York Times there was great speculation as to who was doing all the leaking. Did you notice dear reader that James Comey seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth? Well, that is because he and many FBI officials are in big trouble over this and many issues that the Trump administration already know about. When further documents are declassified and released to the public, it will become the lead story of our generation, even of the century. The collusion of the 2016 election wasn’t the Russians, it was our own FBI working with Democrats to get elected, and in spite of their efforts, and Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and all the major entertainment celebrities, it wasn’t enough to push Hillary into the job and that terrified all the establishment figures. They are showing the same posturing now, and revealing their vast network of operatives that actively seek the manipulation of our republic. But now like then they don’t stand a chance. However this time is different, Trump has evidence which he controls as the head of the Executive Branch and like any good entertainment personality knows to hold it close until just the right time.

When Trump declassifies all these FISA documents and the network is there for everyone to look at it will destroy the Democratic momentum and send many characters into hiding, which is where James Comey is now. Barack Obama himself has his fingerprints all over this scandal so he will not be in a position to do anything for candidates in California as things tighten up in late October. These people are grossly guilty, and they have pushed Trump and all of us in a way the demands no mercy. But unlike Republicans in the past who were happy to sit on information like this and to play nicely with the Democrats Trump isn’t so inclined. They have come after him and his family with all guns blazing and they have shown their fangs, so they have brought all that is coming on themselves. In a few weeks nobody will be talking about Bob Woodward’s journalist view of how the Executive Branch should be run, or what Omarosa did to break the law by secretly recording Trump in the White House, or what The New York Times thinks about anything, because the story that will be breaking will have them all on their heels at just the right time.

But remember, do not take anything lightly. The best way to beat an opponent is to destroy them, not just a little, but completely. Show up and vote, destroy the Democrats forever by showing such great numbers against them that they never get up off the mat. Beat them so badly that they don’t even want to take another breath. That is the way to approach this election. Do not worry about losing, think about winning, and winning so largely that they can never recover as a party. Such a victory may not be good for Fox News and the horse race of politics, but it would be good for the country, which is what we should all be concerned with primarily. Go vote, and send a message that will resonate through history, and leave no doubt. That is all that really matters in the election of 2018.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When It’s Time to Revolt Against the Government: I put up with Obama, its time the other side put up with my guy, Trump

I am absolutely sure that the other side—the never Trumpers, the Democrats, the swamp dwellers of Washington D.C. culture on both political sides have not thought this thing through. All they know is that they want things to stay as they always have, where government service ties to big private sector pay checks as advisors later on, is a preserved system which stays intact. After all, they spent their entire lives boot licking their way into those positions and they expect to be paid. So they have not thought of the wider implications of removing Donald Trump from office. I’ve thought about it hard and can only say that an impeachment proceeding that removed Donald Trump from the presidency would represent to me an abandonment of our Constitution and would open up the necessity for armed rebellion. It would be hard, but I was at that point before this last election, putting my hopes for a change to the wind and hoping for the best. Luckily it worked out and our nation is going through one of its most prosperous periods in history. But if anybody thinks that I’m going to sit around and accept a removal of my president from office and that the FBI is going to come to my house and arrest me because I’m on a hundred different lists that the new regime thinks is dangerous to them, and I’ll go quietly into the night, they have another thing coming.

I had a little Twitter fight with a liberal screenplay writer the other day over this very issue. The scandal of Trump potentially paying off two women while on the campaign trail during the election of 2016 had put wind in his sales and he was feeling quite empowered. Eventually he called me a “birther” which was one of those controversial people who didn’t believe that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, but in some other country. The controversy of the birther movement was that Barack Obama did not meet the minimum requirement for the presidency and should be removed from office. Of course, the political left rallied behind defending the president even though there was some compelling evidence that created lots of questions in favor of these so-called “birthers.” Ultimately Obama stayed in office and fulfilled his two terms. The issue never really went anywhere, but watching how the Democrats have pushed things with Trump, I’m starting to feel that the situation is very disingenuous. If the shoe had been on the other foot and Donald Trump for instance had been born in England or Switzerland but had documents that showed doubtful elements showing an actual birth certificate in New York, they would have stopped at nothing to remove Trump from office. Nothing. And even ten years later, when they can’t win an argument they use the “birther” name as a way to try to discredit any critic and supporter of Donald Trump.

Republicans, including me, tend to follow the rules. I don’t cut in line, I treat everyone fairly. And in politics when someone I don’t like is in office and I want to replace them, I work to support candidates who can legally replace them with a vote. And that’s how it was for me during Obama’s presidency. I was at the front of a lot of resistance groups helping wherever I could, and I can say that nobody I dealt with planned to go nearly as far as the Democrats have in overturning an American election. There were a lot of things that could have been argued in favor it such a position by Republicans, but because we tend to follow the rule of law, we put up with the guy and waited our turn. I gave their guy, Obama a chance. Now I expect the same respect, and I’m not getting it, and its pissing me off. I use that pronoun because I can only speak for myself, but by experience know that I am not alone in that sentiment. To the extent that the Democrats have abused law in order and tried to alter the election of my candidate into office to give my side a crack at running the country properly has been personally very disrespectful and I think more than justifies an abandonment of the law to kick the shit out of that other side since proper political discourse is not something they are interested in. So to back what Rudi Giuliani said about a revolt by the American people if Donald Trump were to be impeached, he is absolutely correct.

If Democrats want to make a legal standard as to paying off women from Trump’s playboy days to keep quiet during an election then they have to live by that same standard. You can’t bust Trump for these types of things and not bust Democrats for the same thing, even though the evidence is many times worse that Democrats are much guiltier of even harsher crimes. Just as Democrats protected Obama from the “birther” claims and attempted to use the legal system to punish American sheriffs such as Joe Arpaio in Arizona for even investigating the matter the same standard should be applied to Republicans. Donald Trump legally won the election of 2016 and if the election were held today would win again. The Democrats have not put forward any ideas or candidates to refute Trump, instead they have resorted to bending the legal system to their favor while not expecting equal application of it in their direction. Isn’t that just a little too obvious? Our legal system is corrupt beyond any respectable recognition so what other recourse is there but violence if it is used to control one kind of political thinking and not the other.

At some point you just have to say, what the hell. I’m just not going to take it, and that’s where I’m at. I don’t think Democrats have a leg to stand on politically or legally, so I’m not too worried about it. I don’t think the House or Senate are up for grabs and I don’t have any doubt that Trump will win the next election in 2020 because the Democrats literally have nobody to run against them. But I have seen these fangs from this dangerous dog before, and you just don’t turn your back on such a dangerous creature. I would never let what happened to Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort happen to me. And I certainly wouldn’t sit back and let the Democrats in the Justice Department come after me the way they did Joe Arpaio. When Jeff Sessions says that he’s running a Justice Department free of political influences, he’s obviously smoking crack, because those employees are some of the most partisan government workers on planet earth. I don’t trust any of them, and I certainly have lost respect for the FBI. Don’t come knocking on my door.

I’m one of the most law biding people there is so there is no reason to even try it. But my compliance only goes as far as the Constitution of our nation for which all our laws are flowed down from. If the enemies of Donald Trump abandon those rules, they can’t expect to hide behind those rules to protect themselves from me, again the use of a pronoun because I can’t speak for you dear reader. I worked within the system to put up with Barack Obama, George Bush and even Bill Clinton. I didn’t pick up a rifle and organize a militia against the forces of tyranny, I simply worked within the election system to make changes legally. But if Trump is removed from office by any other means than with an election, I will organize a resistance, and I will promise one thing—I won’t be on the losing end of that exchange. It won’t matter if it’s just me or a million people. The odds will not work out in favor of the villains. It won’t matter if its 50,000 black masks of Antifa, the socialist brats of California, or the entire Democratic Party using our own military as a blanket to hide under—it won’t matter. Count on it.

Take All Their Security Clearances: Can’t trust the government, can’t trust the media, but you can trust the gun

Let’s get something straight, John Brennan, Bruce Ohr, and many, many others are losing their security clearance not as some form of censorship to a media looking for the next leak coming from them, it’s because they can’t be trusted. We do not have a free press if they are all pulling for one political party and are working in conjunction with villains who want to destroy the concept of American independence. Trump is the head of the executive branch of government and he was elected to drain the swamp and by looking at the list of people he is considering revoking their security clearance especially those attached to the government case against him, every one of them would be justified. The media and their leakers are not part of any resistance that I want to be a part of. I voted for Trump to resist them and they should consider themselves lucky, because they wouldn’t have liked the alternative.

I had a very nice visit to the Premier Shooting range this past week with my son-in-law so that he could get a chance to shoot my Desert Eagle. The people working at Premier are always good to talk to and the general environment is very representative of the type of gun enthusiasts that are pretty common in the county that I live in, mostly conservative, mostly affluent, and extremely family friendly. Premier Shooting in West Chester is more of a country club for shooters where the traditional venue for that kind of thing is golf. They have a very nice lounge area with a fishing lake to go along with their various classroom settings and sales floor. But shooting is their business and the range was very busy on a Thursday in the middle of the day during my lunch hour. So busy in fact that there was only one lane open for us to shoot on.

The people attending are not a bunch of slack-jawed hippies or tattooed freaks. They were nice, clean-shaven affluent West Chester, Fairfield, and Liberty Township residents enjoying their firearms in what I think is the best range of its kind in southern Ohio. Everything is clean and well-lit, as well as safe. It’s the perfect venue for my .50 caliber Desert Eagle which always provokes a lot of discussion these days whenever I get it out. It’s hard to believe that I’ve only had the gun since May and by August I had already put 1000 rounds through it. But that was a bit of cause for celebration. Going there during my workday with people who I share my day with often is my way of managing stress, so I use the place often for that purpose and it doesn’t take long to go through 50 boxes of ammunition in a three-month period. My son-in-law and I went through two boxes in just twenty minutes so it doesn’t take long. The other people around us were in similar situations, shooting for them was part sport, part philosophy. It was the joining together of a lifestyle that mattered which made the whole Premier experience part of the magic.

We don’t go shooting thinking about killing anybody. I go, and I know that the other West Chester people who share those lanes with me often do the same to enjoy the ballistics of the craft, of a finely tuned gun dispensing a lead projectile toward a target at a distance appropriate to the effort. But always under the layers of endeavor is the reminder that the gun is key to the Second Amendment and that means private ownership and possible militia gathering should it become necessary. Having a gun on your hip or in your bag at the range is a distinct reminder that you are a free person in charge of your life. The government isn’t there to rule you, it’s there to manage affairs on our behalf and if they get out of control then we as people have the means to reel them back in to a properly managed society. Getting to know your firearms is part of the fun, but having them is part of a philosophy of independence that keeps the government from getting out of control.

Over several years of thinking about it now I realize that the NRA isn’t enough. I love them, they do good work, but just their very existence is a kind of appeasement toward the big government gun control lobby. I am of a mind that the government has no business in the regulation of firearms in any manner, because the purpose ultimately of them is to prevent the kind of corruption that we have witnessed as a direct result of the Trump presidency, where massive corruption has been revealed because he was in office to expose it. It was always there, but it was hidden from us by a corrupt media, and many corrupt officials. It has been stunning to learn just how many high-level intelligence officials are part of a culture within the Beltway that have involved relationships with the press. It reminds me of the kind of relationships that form at Premier where people of alike mind join to enjoy shooting, only the like-minded behavior of the advocates of more state control are joined for the opposite intentions.

We do not have a free press with the corporate media types. I am not one who dislikes corporations, but the big names in media have hired and evolved along the lines of big government state controls, likely because they all went to the same type of schools and learned the same values which have evolved on the coastal regions of America. But in the Midwest a different culture exists that does not like all that proposed state control. We put Donald Trump in charge to fix it hoping that things wouldn’t have to get messy. But if they do, that is the next alternative. Giving more power to people like John Brennan was never part of our plan. Not that we wish to be a bunch of crazy radicals, we really just want to be left alone to run our businesses and families. We don’t want the state to assume they are doing anything for our benefit. They aren’t smarter than we are and they are not qualified to herd us all into little groups, to steal our money through taxation and regulate us into everything being such a pain in the ass that running companies isn’t even worth it.

Security clearances are not a right. Brennan lost his because he had a big mouth and acted in ways that were not conducive to traditional American values. His friends within the intelligence community are no better off, they should all lose their access to any security information. It’s not Trump doing these things because he wants to be mean, he’s doing them because he’s fulfilling the objectives that people who like to shoot guns at Premier Shooting in West Chester, Ohio voted for him to do so that they wouldn’t have to take up guns against a corrupt government selling itself to the public through a corrupt media. We know the difference. But by listening to the reaction of people on the other side responding to John Brennan’s loss of clearance, I don’t think they understand much of anything of what is going on in my neck of the woods. They don’t have a choice. Trump is doing exactly what we wanted. There wasn’t a single person at Premier Shooting that day who disagreed with anything that Trump was doing. We’d all give him an A+ on a report card. If there was anything different we’d have him do is to do it all faster. He has the power to shut down these expensive investigations that are only meant to attempt to hurt Republican majorities in the house and senate. Why would we want to help Democrats with that? Its time to kick all those people out of office and take away their security clearances. Its time to cut off the media from the nation’s secrets with their contacts in the intelligence community. I’m not sure we can trust any of them, let alone some of them. But we don’t have to trust them. In many cases we don’t even need them. Because we are gun owners and most of the time, that’s all we really need.

The Dream of Gus Hall: Why John Brennan lost his security clearance and was an insurgent within America

During a lie detector test taken during his CIA application process, John Brennan admitted that he voted for Gus Hall, the Communist USA presidential candidate. He justified that he was doing so to show his unhappiness with the system. Brennan was hired by the spy agency and during 25 years with the CIA his work included work as a Near East and South Asia analyst, as station chief in Saudi Arabia, and as director of the National Counterterrorism Center. After leaving government service in 2005, Brennan became CEO of The Analysis Corporation, a security consulting business, and served as chairman of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, an association of intelligence professionals. Brennan served in the White House as Assistant to the President for Homeland Security between 2009 and 2013. President Obama nominated Brennan as his next director of the CIA on January 7, 2013. The ACLU called for the Senate not to proceed with the appointment until they confirmed that “all of his conduct was within the law” at the CIA and White House. Brennan was approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee on March 5, 2013, to succeed David Petraeus as the Director of the CIA by a vote of 12 to 3. Once Donald Trump became president Brennan threw himself in front of the new White House and became an activist against the reconfigured Republican Party. After his work at many aspects of a phony investigation into the Trump administration and inflammatory interviews on television, Brennan had his security clearance revoked, as it should always have been.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_O._Brennan

Meanwhile the FBI agent in charge of many of the investigations involving the phony hit on the Trump administration was terminated from the agency just a few days before for conduct unbecoming to the responsibilities that were given to the intelligence agency. Both Peter Strzok and CIA agent John Brennan had abused the power given to them under the protections of the American Constitution and acted in ways that obviously sought to undermine it. They both acted in treasonous ways and what happened to them is actually quite light. Strzok should have been fired two years ago, but if we are to be honest he was just doing some boot licking for the people at the top of American intelligence, James Comey, James Clapper and the old communist provocateur, John Brennan.

When Brennan announced that he had voted for a communist the alarm bells then should have stopped the hiring process into the CIA. After all, the CIA would shortly after that interview send Brennan to the very heart of communism in South Asia and the Near East working to supposedly advance American interests in those regions. But having such a weak mind to be disturbed by the system to actually vote for a communist in Gus Hall showed that the new CIA employee would be easily tempted by the communists in Asia rather than remain unaffected emotionally in the service of capitalism.

Obviously the Obama administration was not a capitalist loving enterprise functioning within the White House. Brennan had the president’s ear because the two obviously shared a view of America that was anti-imperialist as defined by that South Asian corridor from China down into Indonesia. Brennan moved up in the Obama White House eventually taking over the entire CIA which is an appalling thought that such a person could have access to so many records on all of us. That the master spy agency was being led by someone who actually found the things Gus Hall had said appealing.

There was no way to confuse what Gus Hall was all about, he was very open about it back then. Listening to his old interviews it sounds unmistakable to the modern platform of the Democratic Party. It could easily be concluded that all through Brennan’s years within the CIA that the advancement of communism may have actually have been their goal as a way to control those populations from a state perspective. Likely it was because John Brennan had voted for Gus Hall that he got the CIA job. It is surely why he was pulled back into government service once the Obama administration took control in 2009. He was a known anti-capitalist insurgent within the Beltway and Obama loved him so much that he put him in charge of the entire CIA.

Of course, the Obama administration over did it. Yes, the CIA and the FBI was spying on you and I and they were taking names of those who were causing trouble, and if Trump had not won the election in 2016 many of us would be in even more trouble today. Of course, John Brennan was working against us, and we knew it. That’s why many of us voted for Donald Trump, because it was either that or to take up arms against a government trying to destroy our capitalist system and to replace it with one that Gus Hall would have liked. We were well on our way to that eventual destruction on the night before November 7th 2016. Clapper, Brennan and Comey had done the back-door work of the Obama administration to ensure that Hillary Clinton could pick up the torch for Gus Hall and carry America over into that long desired communist state, and that we’d all become more like China. That was certainly the dream of John Brennan.

That dream died when Trump was elected sending all these intelligence agency heads sympathetic to the communism of Gus Hall scrambling. One by one they were starting to be fired and were losing their once lofty status as the top of the food chain. Brennan who had been one of the biggest villains against Trump due to his deep commitment to a communist world needed to lose his security clearance. After all, he had been using it to leak things to the press to attempt to undermine the Trump administration at every juncture. To be fair, the new President gave Brennan the benefit of the doubt and didn’t make any hasty moves. But Brennan continued to use any influence he had to attempt to destroy Donald Trump. Taken from his point of view, Donald Trump was everything John Brennan had committed his life against. Trump was an unapologetic capitalist who was taking the country back toward guilt free money-making and personal enjoyment as a sovereign country. Brennan and his insurgents dreamed with every thought they could manifest that America would essentially be swallowed up by China and the world would unite under communism. In his years at the CIA the foundations were put in place, a lifetime of work applied, and within a few months the whole thing was torn down.

From that point of view its easy to see why Brennan is angry at Trump. The trade war with China is the final nail in the coffin for Brennan’s CIA plans to unite America with China and to bring about the dream of Gus Hall. Corporations were to become property of the state and the central government would become the world’s CEOs. That was always the plan until Donald Trump was elected and shattered them. And thankfully Brennan is out of the government loop for good. He has lost his security clearance, corrupt FBI agents are being terminated, and the world of the communist sympathizers within our own country is falling apart. And for that we all have something to celebrate in America. Communism from within has been rooted out starting with John Brennan, and there will be many more to come.
