Covid-19 was predicted in the great novel, ‘Atlas Shrugged’: George Lang is placed on the OHIO 2020 Task Force

With the election put off, and the only method to vote is by way of mail-in ballot which was a disaster perpetrated by our government’s panic over the coronavirus induced by scientists who read all the wrong data for models that never came to be, it is good to see that George Lang who is currently running for the senate has been appointed to the OHIO 2020 Task Force to lay a foundation back to economic recovery in Ohio. George is a good guy to have on that 24-member task force which is bipartisan and geographically diverse representing urban, suburban and rural communities across Ohio. It drives home the importance of having good representation on these kinds of boards because when government gets in the way of people and their business, if the wrong kind of people are on these task forces, a lot more can get screwed up. What we have seen in Ohio as a result of scientists putting up the alarm of inaccurate modeling is absolute economic devastation completely self-imposed. So the danger to us all has already happened, but without someone like George on this task force who understands the necessity of economic activity, the pain would otherwise just be starting.

As much as I hate to say it to those who don’t like Ayn Rand, the author, but this entire Covid-19 virus was predicted nearly page for page in the great American novel, Atlas Shrugged. The book was written over half a century ago, and some of the scenarios were changed in reality from the fictional concepts spelled out in the book, but the day by day happenings and rather rapid decline of our society globally happened in precisely the way Ayn Rand predicted. And it wasn’t by some luck, she had seen it before in the Soviet Union as her father and family were tossed out of their life into becoming fugitives from the mob of communism. When Ayn Rand started writing in America her novels were faced with sharp criticism as the trend toward socialism was just trickling in during the 30s from the progressive movement and the conservatives were too wrapped up in Bible studies to see what was coming. So, Ayn Rand was thought of as a bit of a kook, and a wild mind seeing boogiemen everywhere. There was a desire to trust centralized government and she was saying the opposite.

We could point back in history, particularly during World War II, but also the other wars, the Korean and Vietnamese conflict to study the need of governments to enforce compulsion for a greater good coming into conflict with a free society, such as nationalizing industry at times and invoking the draft—compelling private people to join and possibly die for the state and the reckless mandates of inferior government minds who deem our lives expendable if only the banner of nationalism might survive. It was just that kind of outrage that communists infiltrated American society in the 50s and 60s to take advantage of the terrified people who didn’t want to be drafted into a war with communism in Southeast Asia. Instead, communism was in our universities, and seeping into our labor unions at an alarming pace and offered all those terrified people afraid of the draft an umbrella of safety in the herd. Either way, communism was entering America with either the bullets and bombs of Vietnam or the pot smoke of the hippie movement.

Ayn Rand had the problem figured out as the news of the day was taking place over the subsequent decades. Again, it’s because she saw the fast fuse of communism in Russia where she had to flee to avoid its destructive force. Her great book We the Living should be required reading for every human being on planet earth because it serves as a warning about how these things arise in cultures. The plan for communism in America was a much slower boil and to this day there are many radicals who join into government and have very communist and socialist ideas about things, and they are so ingrained in their thinking that they don’t even realize where those thoughts came from. And every time there is a government task force like the one George Lang is on anywhere in the country, those minds come forward and start setting policy that even more changes the way we do things in America from a capitalist state to more of a socialist one. So, its not always an emergency which destroys constitutional liberties like what we have experienced with Covid-19 and then government’s reaction to it, it’s what happens during the reconstruction period. Because destroying and rebuilding is always part of the way communists work their way into any economic system.

Even in the book Atlas Shrugged, the villains thought they were doing the right thing. They thought what they were doing was for the “greater good,” and to them it was selfish for the “engines of the world” the business leaders and other entrepreneurs to insist to keep the profits of their work and not share with the rest of the world, so the intention of the villains was to compel them to do so against their will. We clearly saw this happening in truly alarming ways during the Covid-19 outbreak, government was very quick to take away liberties for their version of the greater good, because they thought they knew better what the greater good was. To make that compulsion less violent the villains of Atlas Shrugged and of this updated government induced crises used fear to unify people toward a common goal which eventually led to tying every person in the world to the safety and security of everyone else, which essentially froze private action through thought. It was a paralysis of action that the world had never seen before all at one time and was astonishing to witness on such a scale. Except that Ayn Rand had predicted it in her great novel, Atlas Shrugged.

I’ve known George Lang for a very long time. He is a very balanced thinker, he can speak to a guy like me whose always ready for a fight over Constitutional grounds and five minutes later speak with Governor DeWine without getting wrapped up in the emotions of the moment, and that is one of his most valuable traits. People wonder why I trust him so much because he’s not calling for impeachment every five seconds or is willing to sit on task forces like this Covid-19 one peacefully. Well, its because every year for Christmas George gives out free copies of Atlas Shrugged to people as presents, and he’s done this for a very long time, longer than he’s know me. George understands what makes markets tick and why business is the tock of a state’s lifeblood. Without business, there is no state, only pent up angry people looking for a job. At the center of all civilization is the notion of producing something of value and then developing a means to get that value to people who need it, which is what we term a “job.” Now that so much has been destroyed of our jobs, I can’t think of a better person to help fight to get them created again, and in helping to shape the economic development of Ohio. Without him the villains of Atlas Shrugged would have no challenge to their collectivist intentions. But with George, we have a fighting chance, and most of the time, that’s all we need.

The Phony Math of Covid-19: How scientists tried to take over the world with a few percentage points

I called the Covid-19 viral outbreak a scam from the beginning not because it wasn’t a real virus, it has been. But the way that the World Health Organization and the CDC organized their math to communicate their concerns sent alarm bells out from the beginning. For a virus that nobody seemed to have ever seen before, scientists seemed to know a lot about it to construct models which of course manipulated the world into a global shutdown of their economies. A little reading will show that many of these same scientists behind the Covid-19 models are also supporters of the highly political climate change activism that is so prevalent, so there was a reason that they devised their math to tell such a story on something they couldn’t have known enough to do, they manipulated the math to tell a political story about climate change rather than any real danger about dying from a new virus coming out of China. And they figured that by the time people realized how wrong they were that they could point to social distancing to say that they saved the world from a pandemic and that people would then listen to them on other topics once the viral outbreak was over, and behavioral changes across the world had been introduced and accepted as new aspects of culture. What they didn’t want anybody to figure out was that they were powerless to do anything about Covid-19 because there was no vaccine and that the best way to tackle it was to get it and get over it. Once people got sick from it then they’d have some level of immunity and the danger would be averted. However, they wanted to slow the spread of the virus for a whole host of political reasons so they came up with social distancing and conned politicians around the world into following them with unusually high death toll numbers that got everyone’s attention, but ultimately had a goal of changing social behavior by an unelected mass of academics.

The common flu has a fatality rate of around .1% and routinely produces about 60,000 deaths a year through the whole year. Many people have some level of immunity to most flu outbreaks so the R-naught number of 1.3 doesn’t spread so fast, which is why only 60,000 deaths happen. Currently Covid-19 has an R-naught number of 2, which means for every one coronavirus carrier, they give it typically to 2 people. With a normal virus, its 1.3 people. So Covid-19, because it’s a new strain of virus spreads almost twice as rapidly and has a longer incubation period where the carrier is contagious—that is until human immune systems adapt and overcome as they typically are expected to do. The problem starts when scientists built their models to project the total number of the outbreak on stats that were known in January and February of 2020 where there wasn’t much testing around the world for Covid-19 so nobody knew what the actual fatality rate would be. With that in mind scientists used the number 1-3% mortality which is what we knew of cases and those who needed to go to the hospital for assistance with the virus and died—which is how they built their mortality rate number.

However, by the time scientists were building their models many people had already gotten over Covid-19 and were no longer susceptible to the virus. As of this writing there are over a million cases of coronavirus and we know of more than 233,000 who have recovered. Most of those million will recover fully with no real issues, as they would a common virus. A percentage of them will need some help at a hospital due to some statistical anomaly, yet the panic was that our healthcare system wouldn’t be able to deal with the surge because scientists used the unusually high fatality number to calculate their assumptions. I would propose this was done on purpose because the virus was so new they thought nobody would call them out on having the wrong initial fatality number and that everyone would forgive them for an error on the side of caution. But what they were really after was policy changes that helped them with their real passion, saving the planet from man-made climate change. The actual fatality number should have been in the flu range of around .1%, not up there around 1.-2%. That’s why scientists were talking about 1-2 million people dying of the Covid-19 virus instead of what it will likely be globally which is around 100,000—a big difference.

Of course, every life matters and we should try to help everyone, but the method here was to prolong the misery for political gains, not to actually save lives. It could easily be argued that immune system builders like happiness, and good food would have helped more people get coronavirus and get over it faster which would have stopped the outbreak, not prolonged it locking everyone in their homes miserable so that they got sick much easier. They did not have such a panicky governor in South Carolina and their Covid-19 cases were much more under control during the outbreak compared to other states with similar demographics. So this notion of flattening the curve was invented supposedly to accommodate that ridiculously high fatality rate that was used to build the death toll numbers. But to keep the story alive, scientists needed people to test positive for coronavirus so that they could keep building that curve with stats they could show to not have egg on their face from their original projections. That left states desperate to get people tested so they could use those numbers to justify their concern and show a buildup of daily increases of cases on their scoreboard that has been displayed on almost every news station and reported with updates around the world every 15 minutes. If we treated other viral outbreaks in the same way, we would have seen similar growth, but we focused on this one to run cover for the original recommendations of the scientists and their misstated fatality number in the beginning.

Of course with more cases reported, the fatality rate was going down, so hospitals in on the game stopped reporting deaths by pneumonia and other ailments and begin attributing them to the coronavirus hoping nobody would notice and it would give a higher death toll. After all, it would make scientists look stupid to say that a million people were going to die when only 50 or 60,000 actually did. So the need for a daily death count to justify all the bad math became an industry standard and by the time of this so-called “surge week” coronavirus was being blamed on every death that was occurring. It would not surprise me that a person dying from getting hit on the head by a shooting meteor streaming in from outer space would have that death blamed on the coronavirus to help that scoreboard look not so bad.

That is how this scam was portrayed and how scientist used that original fatality number to scare politicians into a massive global policy change when in actuality, they should have left coronavirus to the natural immune system of the human being and left the surge need to the hospitals that would normally handle such viral outbreaks in the way they do every year. It was their interference in that process that brought so much misery with the assumption of a high fatality number that threw off all the models—on purpose—to bring attention to leftist causes such as healthcare reform, climate change, and universal wages along with an expanded police state. And they managed it all with a simple number that was off by a few percentage points. They knew they could always ask for forgiveness by playing things safe. But their intentions were much more malicious than that, and for their activism, we have all suffered. How does that make you feel dear reader?

DON’T LISTEN TO THE EXPERTS: Covid-19 in a world of elephants and long tusks

I have been hard on Mike DeWine through the entire Covid-19 outbreak not because he’s a bad person. He’s actually a good person, but he screwed up as a leader and listened to the experts without providing the kind of executive filtration needed in his position. So I say he should be impeached for abusing his emergency powers, costing the state of Ohio billions, and putting unnecessary hardship on each and every person trusting him and his decisions. Good people do dumb things and when they do, they get fired like everyone else. And his mistake was in turning over practically all decision making in response to the coronavirus outbreak to Amy Acton, a professional academic, and letting her set a liberal policy in how to react to a crisis as an unelected bureaucrat. Now, I’m a Republican, an old fashioned one and am used to the people around me not being as solid of a Republican as I am. If the elephant is the symbol of our party, I am that elephant off by himself grazing in the hot sun with tusks dragging on the ground. DeWine is that beat up soul huddled in the group that has been through a lot, he’s had his tusks cut off for poaching, he’s been mulled by lions and he’s certainly been weakened over the years so he is what we call a RINO Republican, he seeks the safety of the herd for his own reasons. I get it, but when he makes himself easy prey for attackers, then he is a threat to my party and philosophy, and he doesn’t have a right to do that, and that is precisely what he has done by bringing in professionals to run the state where he lacked the courage to do so himself.

When we look back on this Covid-19 crises it will be our trust in the “professionals” that got us into all the trouble and caused the trillions of dollars in damages. We’ve set our society up across the world to turn people into overly specialized experts in their fields of endeavor when in all actuality we have been doing it all wrong for well over a century. Experts are good for specificity, but often leadership requires many ways of looking at the same information and picking the best path, and over-specialization blinds even the best experts to the totality of needed leadership. In the case of the world-wide shut down the source of the problem was terrorist intentions to take advantage of the specialized class of doctors in the WHO, the attention starved CDC and all the state health directors and contaminate their trust in modeling with bad assumptions which then triggered a global panic. Once that happened and the experts were crippled and looking to cover their asses with more bad numbers to try to get out of the corners they painted themselves into, the terrorists were looking to inflict massive social change while the world was focused on what the experts would say next.

For many years, and I still have that toolbox in my shop at my house, I had a saying I held very true from the 9 ways of the samurai printed on the lid of my toolbox so I could see it every day. I worked at Cincinnati Milacron for a while when I was younger and got to know a lot of machinists and precision manufacturers where I learned a lot, but I always leaned on those 9 ways of the samurai to think above and beyond the problems that company went through as they gradually died before our very eyes. I would say the cause of death was over-specialization. As the industry changed, Cincinnati Milacron couldn’t make the switch because they were too specialized to adapt. But one of those 9 ways of the samurai is to know the way of all things. That means that a person should not be specialized in only one thing then fit themselves into the cogs of society to only do that one thing, whether it’s a lawyer, an accountant, a manager, a mother or father, a teacher—whatever. What is required, especially among anybody offering themselves as a leader is a person hungry for knowledge in all fields and to understand their ways and how they connect. You don’t have to be a master of all the topics, but to understand their flow and relationships. Most companies, or governments die because they are overly specialized and too in love with processes that create a world of specialization. When needed, they can’t think on their feet and are easy to defeat when challenged.

And that is where we find ourselves with this coronavirus nonsense. We have allowed specialized doctors to create policy instead of the debate our republic demands and now we have all kinds of trouble. The powers behind this virus outbreak put the pressure on President Trump who has a history of doing exactly as I have said, not trusting experts and making decisions based on a wide range of understanding that most CEOs can do. When the experts threatened to paint Trump with every death that came out of essentially an aggressive pneumonia outbreak, Trump took a step back and said OK, we’ll listen to the experts. Its an election year. He’s not going to let them hang this on his head when it was the experts who said that millions of people would be dead if we didn’t social distance. And then they backed that figure down to 200,000. Now that number as of this writing is going down further and Dr Doom himself is trying to blame the modeling that he built his whole case around. If I were Trump, I wouldn’t play that game, but he is after all a New York liberal. He’s new to the field of elephants. His tusks aren’t as big as mine, but he hasn’t had his cut off like DeWine has, so there is at least enough fight and logic in Trump to make something good of all this. But it was all so unnecessary, and all the pain was caused by “experts” who leveraged themselves onto the world stage, and now they are drowning by the attention.

Leadership, real leadership is where you listen to what experts say, but you consider all types of other information as well. Americans are not a society that will be ruled by some academic class, which is exactly what this Covid-19 outbreak is about. To watch Doctor Doom from the CDC contemplate the 10th Amendment and wonder why the federal government hasn’t shut down the entire country, he clearly doesn’t know enough about law to grapple with the scope of his desire. He may know something about colds and viruses as a professional doctor, but he clearly doesn’t understand constitutional law, or much of what drives human behavior. He has built his models around his academic view of the world and nothing else, and that has put us all in a perilous place because the rest of the medical community has followed him state to state blindly accepting his mistakes as our new reality. To know the art of all things, to fight a virus we must consider that it is the human immune system that we must bolster to fight off viruses and to do that vitamin D is important (sunshine). Happiness in general. Good food, optimism, there are lots of factors to consider. We could easily say that following these doctor’s orders has likely spread the virus by lowering everyone’s immune systems in such a passive state. Specialists who are only thinking about lives saved and can only think in the means of a process struggle when the true answer is outside of those questions such as what factors make a life—a life? Someone pent up scared in their homes waiting on a government led by doctors to save them or a self-empowered person acting cautiously and doing all the right things to build themselves up to combat the virus with their own immune systems, which way is the best path? The push for a centralized solution ultimately is what caused all the deaths if we want to blame them on anything. The “slow the spread” tactic came up by these experts has only delayed the inevitable, which was their push to highlight socialized desires in the healthcare system, at the expense of all our happiness and good living.

If we listen to the doctors they would have us all wearing helmets each time we go outside, putting on masks so that ugly people feel more equal to pretty people, and they’d have us all having sex in hazmat suits. They are not leaders, only considerations. They become problems when we make leaders out of them and when they are, they destroy everything in sight every single time. There is no instance on earth or in world history where an overly specialized society ever thrived, and it never will in the future. Leadership remains an elusive science, but when a politician like DeWine accepts a leadership role then turns it over to a process driven specialist like Amy Acton, and she screws everything up, its his fault. You don’t surrender leadership over to experts who are too specialized to see the big picture. And that is precisely why every single American, and many around the world are suffering right now, because leadership was left to those least able to conduct it.

Dr. Doom and the Grand Covid-19 Conspiracy: Fauci and many others hope of reshapping America through panic

When I call the Covid-19 virus an attack of a different kind its due to the recognition that we all must have to fight the real invisible enemy. The perpetrators undoubtably know what they are doing but the conspiracy is not the little virus that they have everyone so terrified of using a panicky media to do so, it’s human nature itself that has been turned on its head and used as a weapon in times of a different kind of war. On this battleground most people are overly reliant on third party controllers through their media devices, and through years of failed public education have learned to trust the systems that rule their lives. That was clearly what Dr. Fauci was thinking when he went on CNN on the morning of March 29th and sabotaged President Trump’s desire to reopen America during Easter Weekend. Fauci, a lover of the idea of a global medical network where doctors get a lot more prominence in some future type of society always worried about every little disease and bump on the head, knew that if he stated that 200,000 people could die from the Coronavirus that President Trump wouldn’t be able to move forward with his plans, and that the best way to get what the medical community wanted—which was more power—was to drop that bomb on CNN before meeting with Trump, to control the content of the meeting.

I have no doubt that at the last Devos Economic Summit where I have proposed that this plan of shutting down the world, especially America was formed that these subtilties of human nature were discussed as the chain reaction that was needed to advance their plots. Why wouldn’t it work, short selling would trigger a mass sell off panic, Trump would be put on his heels as his precious American economy would be jeopardized in an election year, as a pent-up and highly ignored group of bureaucrats in the medical industry wanting very much socialized medicine to match their climate change initiatives would do all the dirty work as the investors there at Devos would buy up everything on the low and get very rich doing it. They would then spend some of those gains on foundations that further perpetuated the restructuring of the world after Covid-19 through foundations and grants. To understand the truth of that plan we must all remember that Dr. Fauci has advised many presidents and has been around for a while. Trump inherited him for a position that most wouldn’t have thought very important at the time. Even if Trump would want to fire Fauci the press would swarm all over it making it the lead story all over the world. For Trump, the only real move he would have would be to play along with Fauci and let him be embarrassed by the lower death rates. After all, while the Covid virus was going on, nobody in the world was talking about all the other things that were happening and this was a chance for the President to reach out to moderates and attempt to expand his base if only his base would stay in tact through the government mandated shutdowns. And if they didn’t, the Devos conspirators would be happy to say that they had finally managed to separate Trump from his base giving them a shot to put a Manchurian Candidate into the White House perhaps after all.

Meanwhile, as reported by the Butler County Sheriff’s department in my hometown in Ohio 911 calls have consisted of people telling on each other for having too many cars at one house, or too many people standing in one yard. People had turned on each other after just a few weeks of the stay at home orders that governors all across America had placed to self-implode the American economy only to save a few lives that were taken by an aggressive seasonal virus. The behavior of common everyday people quickly fell into the realm of a zombie apocalypse. People were turning on each other while the real villains were patiently waiting in the oversea markets to buy up the losses and set future government policy not through the United Nations, but through the World Health Organization. The front offense had not worked a decade before so this new approach which appealed to most everyone’s primal fears for basic survival was a much more prosperous one from that point of view. Who needed to send in tanks and troops when friends and neighbors had become the enemy and the focus of the engagement had been placed so close to the front of our faces that there was no way to see the big picture strategy that was at play, until of course it was too late.

It is unlikely that Dr. Fauci was anything a part of that Devos global strategy formed at the 2020 Economic Summit there, but they counted on his pent-up greed for recognition in his own profession to start the chain reaction. They knew that the fear of liability was such a pervasive concern in the highly litigious American culture that once the federal government set an aggressive standard on guidelines that every governor and mayor down the line would add their own bits to it out of fear of having a single death blamed on inaction. By overdoing the restrictions, they could at least say they did everything they could to prevent a single death by Covid-19. All they needed out of Dr. Fauci was a nonverbal conspirator who wanted to advance his chosen field under the limelight of global recognition. The rest would take care of itself. Fauci painted Trump in a corner where the Democrats could blame him for everything, if he acted too late, if he acted too aggressive, if he was not concerned enough, the media was doing the work for him in an election year of putting ropes on the President, just as the Devos conspirators had anticipated would happen. It would force Trump to try to flip around the effort and use it as a campaign platform—which was his only choice while taking a gamble that the American economy would bounce back in the summer, after loosing trillions and trillions of dollars during the shutdown.

As I was explaining all this to people wanting to understand it, I was throwing a baseball and used the thing to press up in front of the persons face I was explaining it too to conduct a proper metaphor. With the baseball literally against their eye, they could see nothing but the stitches on the baseball. Then I explained, the real way to look at this is from behind home plate as the batter hits the ball and pops the ball into the outfield for a catch next to the wall. You have the look at the ball from that distance to see what’s really going on and to understand the game. If your eye is right up against the ball, you won’t see all the other aspects of the game. And that is the real trick of the Covid-19 strategy, to put literal death in front of people and to cause them to only see the stitches and their need for basic survival—while all the events of the game go on beyond their ability to see. The intentions are obvious if you are looking at the whole field, which is how we must view what is happening to our country right now by very malicious attackers. And Dr. Fauci is playing his part for sure.

No, We’re Not All In this Together: When government ignores the rules we all agree to we have an obligation to replace them

There are so many things wrong with the Covid-19 reaction by our government at so many levels, but the worst attribute of it was the decision to extend the suspension of the Constitution until April 30th over fears of a high death count of people suffering from the global virus outbreak. The lockdown of our American economy is a death of its own, one that will likely cause many more deaths and suffering than the virus. But the way we have been tricked into measuring this thing put President Trump into a bad position. I get the politics on every level, but that doesn’t make it right and my position is as it always has been, whether or not Trump is president, I agree to the Constitution. When the Constitution is suspended and our government isn’t using it for guidance to the rule of law, then I no longer feel bound to those rules, and a social check is in order, even mandated. Now I am supportive of a government trying to help people when disaster strikes, but in the end with this Covid-19 virus, many governors and mayors have gone well beyond the CDC guidelines recommended at the federal level and abuse has been quite obnoxious. The danger should be quite clear to everyone, emergency powers suspending the Constitution without any clear resolution is a dangerous place to be, and that is something we all need to deal with.

Suddenly unelected pill pushers are in charge of our economy and have forced President Trump to play a bad game of relying on them for his salvation, and our own Constitutional rights. We are living presently in a world where checkpoints on our highways are in place, we are being monitored for public safety, even forced to self-quarantine should we be shown to be a risk factor to the society at large—and constantly everywhere we are being told by government that we are all in this together. Well, no we’re not, I do not accept being compelled into the same lunacy as this government has fallen under, and if there is no Constitution, then there is no law. Compliance to a government that has lost its way is not some mandate that we must all be sheep moving in a herd like a bunch of idiots and what we have witnessed has changed my thoughts on government forever. I’ve always been weary of it, but what I have seen in the last month over a viral outbreak that is really an aggressive form of pneumonia is the kind of stuff that starts wars. My only real hope in the matter is that Trump will spin all this around on his attackers. There are several avenues I can see where this can be done, but it should have never come to this. If there is a silver lining, I supposed it’s good that having Trump in the White House forced the planners of this reaction to the next virus to hit the waves to play their card now instead of a few years down the road.

President Trump has been a good president, but he got suckered on this one, the doctors told him to shut down the economy otherwise every death on the meter would be blamed on him. Then he was told by those same doctors that if he opened the economy too early, then every death would be blamed on him. They pinned him in a corner and his only play is to let their overreactions to models show how they overstepped and to hit them in hindsight. But the suspension of the Constitution, compelling General Motors to comply to being taken over by the state, a 2 trillion dollar bailout where government stuck its noses into all our lives causing massive financial failures is not OK. And we can see now how door to door searches would look, because they are happening now in minor ways, soon to be elevated based on the success. Government has pressed us to see what they can get away with and so far, we’ve been too compliant—which was a bet they were willing to make based on Google analytics and Facebook data collection. Trump is still a good president, but if he sends troops to my community, that for me is a challenge to take our government back from the clutches of these losers, not to comply with more orders.

My life is not to be surrendered to the stupidity of government bureaucrats, and I am not all in it together with lazy people who could care less. Government is there to make sure the courts run, that the highways get paved, and to keep order. They are not there to be our kings and emperors, and if they view their first role to protect people then they have opened up a definition that could easily lead to tyranny, because every action could be viewed by some timid soul to be dangerous. If a president that I have supported gets suckered into a bad deal, like what is happening over Coronavirus, then it is not my obligation to go down with the ship. The Constitution is what it is, it’s not to be suspended under ill-defined emergency orders as viewed by flawed individuals drunk with power. Check points and house arrests are too far for me. I do not trust state or federal government to make decisions on my life, especially of this magnitude. I am happy to wash my hands not to spread a virus, even to separate from others to not pass it around, but the destruction of an economy I’m proud of, and to tell me to stay inside—the government people are doing government work, just isn’t acceptable.

Regardless of what happens on April 30th, this government has lost my confidence in it to behave properly and do what it must do to advance American interests. I will still work to re-elect President Trump, but honestly it’s the whole system that bothers me, it’s a Democrat House that would even attempt to paint him in a corner with a death count and a media that would resort to such low tactics that shows me no matter who we elect that they will not respect the kind of America I have been fighting for, and that means that things probably need to get messy. We have seen this kind of hysteria over the #metoo movement, except when Joe Biden is involved, we see this over so many issues, why would anybody think otherwise when a virus is politicized to destroy America from those who truly hate it and those of us who want to preserve it. I’m not going to just sit around and let that happen. If they want a fight, well, then let’s have it. But I’ll say this, we are not all in this together. I am not participating in the kind of America they want just as they have refused to participate in the one I represent. They should know better, but joining their vision isn’t an option, and taking away our society and everything we love isn’t going to break us like some horse. I view this reaction to the Covid-19 virus shutdown as an assault and it has changed the way I will deal with government in the future. That is for sure.

The Gun is the Only Rule of Law: We have seen government out of control over Covid-19 and know we can never really trust them

One thing that I have learned as a result of the mass government panic over the Covid-19 virus outbreak is that the Second Amendment is more important than ever. I’ve always been something of a cowboy law traditionalist as defined by the culture of America, but I always first look to the laws of our Republic to work out problems through debate, networking, and elections to solve the problems. But in my lifetime, and everyone reading this, we have never seen a situation where government lost their minds so quickly, and more dangerously than they have with the mass neurosis of the China Virus that the media hyped so vehemently, the world locked themselves down over, and governors and mayors all across America became drunk with power all behind a mask of protecting people for their own good. We have now seen for ourselves how these elected representatives would behave together under pressure and we can be 100% sure they could never be trusted in a gun-less society. Its one thing to theorize about it, as we have been doing for decades, but now we’ve seen it for ourselves with two fine examples, one is Mayor Cranley of Cincinnati and the other is the mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti.

To enforce the Governor of Ohio’s stay at home order Cranley took the exceptional measure of committing officers to going from business to business to question whether or not they were essential businesses, and stated that citizens would be questioned of their intentions if they were found out on the streets. People were not supposed to question the competency of the government decision to go on a wild goose chase with this Covid-19 spectacle, everyone was supposed to just do what they were told by a governor abusing his emergency powers by overriding a court order to keep the election going, and now was issuing a mandatory stay at home order based on bad modeling coming in from Europe. We were supposed to all lock ourselves up in our homes, follow government directions and destroy our businesses because our elected government was losing their minds and Mayor Cranley decided to take things several steps further all on his own. It doesn’t take much imagination to see how things might further get out of control if something like this statewide lockdown went on any longer, we can easily see how national guard troops would be sent to troublemakers homes to be arrested and have all their rights stripped away by just the stroke of a pen from an elected official who has lost their minds.

Eric Garcetti went even further by saying he intended to track down violators of their stay at home orders through cell phone feedback. Violators in L.A. according to Garcetti could be hunted down by tracing their cell phone locations, that same technology that runs Google Maps and tells you where to go and how long it will take to get there. Government in conjunction with cell phone companies are perfectly willing to use that technology against you to make an example out of violators who dare question their sanity. The entire “Stay at Home” program advocated by these politicians obviously requires deep legislative consideration and is connected to Democrat ideas about zero emissions to protect against climate change as they have defined it with the same over-hyped modeling procedures. But under these emergency acts these deep seated liberals were able to enact lifestyle changes that would never be approved by an elected legislature so they went into action quickly to become the terrors we always feared they might become from the days of arguing over smart meters and Agenda 21 desires from the United Nations. Instead of that governing body, none of which was elected by Americans, we had the World Health Organization setting policy this time and crazy radicals in office used that chance to severely abuse their authority.

I’ll tell the stories later but I saw several times this past week where I thought I might get into one of those firefights to defend my constitutional rights from a government seeking to take them from me. Luckily it hasn’t come to that but I won’t forget how I felt. This Covid-19 case is relatively a minor one, so it doesn’t take much to think how quickly things could have gotten much worse if we didn’t have a president like Trump in office for instance, or if we didn’t have a Republican in Ohio government as the governor. Mike DeWine tried to talk out of both sides of his mouth knowing how draconian some of these policies were, but if we had a Democrat, things could have been a lot worse. It doesn’t take much imagination to see government going door to door confiscating guns, separating families, and confiscating all property for the greater good. All those things would be possible if a governor under emergency powers—any emergency—deemed such a thing necessary and we just can’t allow that unchecked power to remain.

Gun rights are the foundation of rule of law. When a politician gets to the point where they make the rules up as they go, as so many did during the Coronavirus shutdowns, then it may well be needed to check that power at the point of implementation. Usually when emergency powers are used it’s for disaster relief like a hurricane or a tornado. We have not shut down entire states of what has become apparent are purely political reasons, because Coronavirus was never that deadly and was over-hyped to secure a power grab to exploit those emergency powers, and at that point, if you become an enemy of the state because you are in the wrong political party, or you have expressed yourself using free speech to make an argument, and they decide to come for you and your family, then deadly force will have to be used, what other choice would you have? Is being arrested and thrown in jail by that same system of government acceptable? My answer to myself was of course not. When governors like DeWine, whom I have supported, decide to go against court orders, then what chance do you have in the legal system if you find yourself a fugitive by mandate of safety for the greater good?

These are hard questions to answer but at least the good news is that now we know without a grain of doubt that government will abuse its authority in days, not even weeks, of a national emergency. Civility quickly loses ground and even the best people can start to appear like tyrannical maniacs on a self-imposed crusade to initiate law anyway possible to violators of their command. And like Mayor Garcetti stated, if you violate his order, he was willing to hunt you down after only a few days of a crises. Imagine if something like this went on for months. This leaves us with no other conclusion, the only thing we can really trust to enforce the law is a gun secured to our bodies to use if needed to defend our lives from those opposed to it. Compliance to faulty thinking people is not an option, that is why we have a republic, not a democracy, because we elect people to debate rules we can all agree on, not on politicians who use emergency powers to become kings and emperors and can demand compliance even to the most insane regulation. And when it does happen, the gun may be the only thing we have left that represents anything close to law and order.

The Liberalized Coronavirus: Its all about state budgets and election year politics

Then there is the day after this virus outbreak is over, and it’s quite clear that the nation’s governors, both Republican and Democrat do not want that day to come soon. They are enjoying the attention, the daily press conferences, the chance to go on television and talk. To be a hero every day and talk like they are perpetually campaigning. However, the bills in their states are not getting paid, but the demands have not gone away. The size of government is going to be a real problem for them once this all ends, which it should have already. While I’m not going to be shy about calling bullshit on this viral attack and the purpose of it, I will also say that the threat of me being wrong went away about two weeks ago when the CDC had to start walking back the death toll.

There was a slow transition from that story to the number of sheer cases that would overflow the hospitals, which is a thinly veiled promotion of a need of government healthcare. But even that is thinning out. Instead its becoming more and more obvious that the state governors are sticking to the flattening the curve story because once people realize that is a bunch of bullshit too, someone is going to have to pay for all this, and the states have not been collecting money, because nobody is working and spending money. That is a big problem for their state budgets. While the federal government can print all the money it wants, states must balance their budgets and this whole Coronavirus thing has blown that requirement up.

Some of the most psycho states that have over-reacted to the Covid-19 virus particularly Illinois and California are obviously poising their post virus world for a government handout using this virus to cover the fact that their states were headed to bankruptcy. Even cities like Cincinnati are poised to use this virus as the excuse for their financial failures which were well in place before the news media started making Covid-19 the poster child for zero emissions forcing everyone off the roads and to hide in their homes to get close to it and save the earth from mankind—in their distorted view of reality. Covid-19 for them was like a snow day for the college kids who partied all weekend then on Sunday night tried to cram for a test only to learn on Monday that the college was on lockdown and nobody knew when it might open again. Most of the radical states and cities who were underwater in their budgets couldn’t pay their bills had nothing to lose in following the orders of the state governors and the president, even going further than necessary to put on a good show, because it was their ticket to a federal bailout that might wipe their slate clean. But that doesn’t erase the problem, the federal government can’t bail out everyone. The amount of money they will be looking for will far exceed the $2 trillion package that was just passed, but its their only shot at solving their original problem. They plan to overdramatize this virus outbreak to hide their own fiscal irresponsibility. Mayor Cranley in Cincinnati is already announcing layoffs to drive the point home forcing the state to bail out all the government workers left hanging on the vine and once that happens, the mayors and governors will be able to say, “I was only following the orders of my president.”

Most of the liberal governors already were ready to do extreme things for climate change, the dog whistle was already coming from Bill Gates and other radical leftists for years, so stopping all economic activity was a chance to cheer for the activists who want to destroy the means of mankind and walk everyone back to a primitive state in order to save their cherished mother earth with the zero emission push. Of course, those radical groups used this virus to sell that concept. We all know it takes around 21 days to change a behavior, so an international lockdown of about that period of time will hopefully make people less addicted to using their cars to go out to dinner every day, and it introduces the concept to lots of young people the idea of a universal wage, giving out government checks that are larger for a few weeks than the wages their employers would give them—which hurts companies that are part of that carbon footprint on Bill Gates’ graph challenging the goal of a zero emission society. Then of course promoting healthcare workers in the way they are and crying for hospital beds and ventilators are the way to plant the seeds for socialized medicine. This whole Coronavirus outbreak has not been about the danger of actual deaths, but in changing human behavior toward liberal causes. And by default, it has tied all of us to the end result of desiring to get everything running again, together. It is at that time that we might agree to tax increases to pay for the bailouts of all the bankrupt states that can’t pay their police, their teachers, their BMV workers—everyone. They plan to slow down all government activity with a lack of workers to frustrate everyone into giving them whatever amount of money they can get their hands on and they’ll blame this virus for the need. Of course, higher taxes are the biggest thing that liberals want out of the Coronavirus. The money will have to come from somewhere and that is going to be their next move.

You must learn dear reader that these types of people do not function in the same reality as everyone else. They will at every opportunity seek to take advantage of the good nature of people in general to advance a political agenda, and as you can see, there are a lot of them attached to this Covid-19 outbreak. Of course, they put Trump in a position they controlled when they said to him that millions of people were going to die in America. He had to act. He’s trying to walk it back now in an election year where fake news is trying to say through polling that Joe Biden is actually ahead of him for the presidential election. We’re talking about a world where the liberal minded now run Fox News and will fire Trish Regan for essentially saying on television what I’ve been saying, but they’ll promote Donna Brazile. The war has been going on for a long time and the budgets were threatening to destroy all the liberal governors, and now all those issues have been put on the back burner to make way for this Coronavirus which has touched the behavior of almost every American in a very intimate way. They have been all trying to set up Trump in the election year any way they can. And they are planning to use this Coronavirus to blame all their massive layoffs on him until they get a bailout of their state and that is the next battle to come, which will take up every bit the same amount of news cycle time during the election as Coronavirus has. People often can’t see all these elements because they don’t look at the picture as big as they need to, but the liberal engine of radical advancement of many ideas was hatched under a desire to promote zero emissions blaming it on a viral outbreak, but the budget demands of bankruptcy gave an added benefit which is what the current story on the days after are all going to be about. For the political left, this Covid-19 is their grand fortissimo of the Kavanaugh hearings, the impeachment trial, Stormy Daniels, the Russian Dossier, and the mass FBI cover-up with the DOJ all wrapped up into one epic story of collapsed state budgets because the President was trying to contain a virus that was never really a threat. And they hope this one knocks him out of office where the other things didn’t.  April 30th is a long way off, too long, and the political players know it.
