Oh No, Its a Delta Variant: Remembering Lois Lerner and the many lies by government

Its the Delta Variant!

I’ve about had it with the Covid-19 “Delta Variant,” which I would say is just a government concoction meant to increase the vaccination numbers.  There is so much wrong with all this that we’ll be studying it for years, trying to figure out where it all went wrong.  To make it simple, I would say that electing President Trump exposed this deep state mess.  The Delta Variant was created to cover their crimes of election fraud. In at least two places, Maricopa County, Arizona, and Fulton County, Georgia, there was election fraud large enough to change the election’s outcome in both of those states.  Its irrefutable evidence that election fraud happened, and it was a massive, coordinated effort on behalf of Democrats and their deep state supporters.  Who are those deep state supporters? Well, we know them well in the FBI.  They are part of the story, but ultimately, it’s the entire Beltway culture that has turned politics into a goldmine of profit extracted from the panic that the media culture gladly generates to drive the narrative of corruption.  But it didn’t start with Trump. Suppose you had to put the finger on it and declare that the January 6th, 2021, cause of mayhem at the Capitol began with the IRS corruption of 2010.   We learned about Lois Lerner weaponizing the tax-collecting agency into attacking Tea Party challengers in 2010, after the reform group caused mass changes in politics during the midterms, not in favor of Democrats.  The Deep State quickly whisked Lerner off the stage, just as they have with Bill Gates recently, to take him out of the Covid connection with the Wuhan lab in China, and the lack of resolution just continued to mount.  Not having an answer to Lois Lerner or justice brought to the IRS brewed a fit of anger that has been building for quite a long time.  And Democrat Deep Staters know it, which is why there is a Delta Variant of Covid-19 now.  They know we know about their crimes, and they are trying to buy time to get out of it. 

It’s important to understand history. Don’t look to the media to remind you; their business model prevents us from remembering what happened yesterday, especially the Beltway media.  Their whole structure is built on the subsequent crises that will drive ratings tomorrow while covering the horse race between election cycles.  The moment they have to think about some of those horses being juiced up on steroids or in some official tampering with the great race, then the integrity of their coverage loses all appeal.  So, of course, they don’t want to look at election fraud.  They can’t afford to.  Yet, that is what the attackers of the 2020 election counted on happening.  They figured that the time frame to prove election fraud was too short between election day and inauguration day.  And that the media couldn’t afford to cover any of it because they needed to start the coverage of the next election cycle as their business model and the kind of people who pay them with ads demand.  There wasn’t time for a constitutional crisis; there wasn’t the time or a will to even consider it, especially since many just wanted Donald Trump and his mean Tweets to go away.  So out of arrogant desperation, the entire system showed its cards and threw them down on the table, thinking they had the winning hand.  They didn’t know or expect that they had been caught cheating and that the case would extend for months and years into the future, gradually weakening the entire system.

What didn’t help the Democrats is that the nation isn’t taking the bait either on the January 6th commission to investigate the insurrection at the Capitol, destabilizing the political establishment to its core.   There is a genuine fear that people in America may very well rise and rip the politicians from their very seats.   That the natives did not respect the system’s authority, and for Biden’s group, the Nancy Pelosi types, that was truly scary.  But I’ll save them a lot of money in investigating that event; it wasn’t Trump that caused all that frustration.  It was the lack of justice for Lois Lerner years ago.  It was the cover-up of Benghazi where people were killed, and the Democrats tried to blame it on a YouTube video when it was a clear case of mismanagement of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State during Obama’s election-year of 2012.  People don’t forget.  Then there are all the injustices against Trump, of the FBI working with the DNC to take out a political candidate with an open coup.  It was two impeachments of Trump, a popularly elected president.  Covid, a blatant power grab by liberal governors, and yes, Mike DeWine of Ohio behaved like the other blue-state governors.  Then it was election fraud on election night; we went to bed on that Tuesday in November with Trump winning.  Vegas was calling it for Trump, then the five states stopped counting, sent home their workers, then when we woke up, Biden had won, and we were supposed to believe all these last-minute votes were all for Biden. 

That’s what caused the Capitol riot, it was a government that had been lying to the people it was supposed to serve, and people had witnessed a long string of injustice with no end in sight, and they were sick of it.  And they are continuing to be sick of it.  They are getting madder by the day, and no appeasement will take that anger away.  Every time Facebook colludes with the government to censor the voting public or Twitter bans any talk about an actual scientific fix to Covid with hydroxychloroquine; they throw gas on the fire.  People have not forgotten Lois Lerner and all the other government cover-ups of weaponizing offices paid for by taxpayers for the intent of keeping Democrats in power.  And the worst of it was when the vote was taken away from them.  First, they voted for Trump in 2016 legitimately and by popular consent.  The Beltway worked for four years to take that vote away.  When they couldn’t, they unleashed Covid, used the emergency powers given to them by Dr. Fauci in the Wuhan lab to alter a variant of SARS that did not exist in nature paid for by the NIH—taxpayers—to create a virus that would spread quickly to humans and cause this whole artificial crisis.  All in the name of performing election fraud in the fall.  They tampered with the economy, tampered with the constitutional process of elections, and ultimately coordinated with foreign powers to undermine our republic.  They committed big-time crimes and stuck them on the back of that long list, and people are mad about it.

So in that way, the Biden administration knows people are on to them.  Mike Lindell just yesterday announced that with the evidence he has about election night, and the packet captures, which show China tampering with vote switching from Trump to Biden that he’s willing to pay $5 million to anyone who can disprove his evidence, the game is up.  The news hasn’t told you that, dear reader, of course, because they can’t afford to.  But the gig is up.  And to delay the consequences just a bit longer, the government is trying to create their standard stall tactic to the implications with this Delta Variant.  Yes, the CDC is in on it.  China is in on it.  The Biden administration, the DNC, most of the cable news stations, many corporations all gambled on the wrong number, and they have lost it all on reality.  And they can’t quite wrap their minds around the implications of what they have been seeing.  People don’t trust them.  People don’t like them.  And what happened on January 6th was just a little thing.  Because the anger is genuine, and it doesn’t favor them.  They have a good reason to panic, they have been discovered, and they will have to pay. They’ve been delaying as much as possible, but they can’t outrun this one.

America Was Meant to Divorce the Class System: Answering a good question

America was Never Meant to have a Class System

When I posted the video for this article, I received an excellent comment asking a great question.  When talking about a class system in America and recognizing it, this person wanted to know what to do about it.  Here is the comment:

“All well and good, but how do we the people reign in corruption in our government from our meager station? When my best year is working in a machine shop, I made $63,000; someone like Hank Johnson makes $174,000 plus perks.  Look up Hank Johnson’s quote about Guam.”

My first instinct was to reply to this guy and say, “well, this is why I wrote my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, to undo this very notion of a class structure in our political world.” That is, after all, how you fight it.  The thing to do is to understand what is happening then divorce yourself from that class system. Don’t let them call you Middle Class or anything as such.  Ignore their class system, function without it.  Of course, his question is that we’re all in it whether or not he likes it.  And to that, I would say, read my new book; it tells you exactly how to function without a class system, but one of earned merit.  But that is kind of cheap to say, “go read my book.” That’s why I wrote it and why it’s separate from something like an article on this blog.  It’s an actual strategy guide for undoing many of the corrosive forces holding back our current society, whether raw progressivism or malicious communism using a class system to enforce their control over the masses.  Or the cost structure of your company and its success or failure and the ultimate connection it has to your ability to make a living.  An answer to a question like his deserves at least some perspective.  Yes, my book would help him, but some context to the problem is well worth answering.

In the video above, I talk about one of the most important things to both males and females that there is in the world, the pecking order of our species and where we reside on it.  I attended a lecture on Joseph Campbell many years ago in Washington D.C., where this topic was covered, and it has always stuck with me.  Not because I agree with it as an accepted reality, but because it truly is one of the most significant elements of human society anywhere in the world.  Our entire public school system is built around this premise, so the people that want to control us, like the guy mentioned in that question, use the pecking order system as a way to preserve their reality.  Once we become adults and accept our pecking order station in life, whether it’s at the top or the bottom or somewhere in between, we typically stay there the rest of our lives.  The guy who accepts that he’s not very smart marries the safe girl who balloons up into a big hipped pillow of flesh in her middle years has kids that don’t like him, and who stays in middle management his whole life was put there through the pressure cooker of adolescence by society, and he never questioned it.  He accepted it and moved on to living life.  That way, when a government tells him to wear a mask or pay huge taxes, he pays the money without question and does what he can to avoid conflict and work from week to week to catch the next Sunday NFL games, which he genuinely enjoys.  If he’s daring, he may put $5 into the office pool and play the brackets of NFL teams who pick the most winners from week to week.  He might treat himself to BW3s and a cold beer that his wife won’t know about if he wins. 

That previous paragraph might sound like a sad case, but it’s a situation to some degree or another what a majority of people believe about themselves.  I used the example of a guy because it’s genuinely understood.  Women have the same problems but with a different focus.  Did I marry the right guy for my children?  Is this the best house I could get as a nest for my family?  Did I get the best DNA for my children using all my female charms to do so?  Again, these aren’t things we talk about, but they are the things that concern us most.  The higher up the pecking order, the better spouse you get, the more resources you have access to.  How much do you fight to rise to the top, or is it better to keep your head down and accept where they put you in life?  These are the things that keep all of us up at night.  The pecking order mentality is a carryover from years of evolution in our species.  But intellectually, as I argue in my book, America came along to shatter that reality.  And for a period, we did just that.  Over time and with the introduction of progressivism from Europe, masking outright Marxism, the class system has crept back into American vocabulary to present us with today’s problems.  The solution to those problems is to cast off the class system. 

My book demonstrates that the American Gunfighter was romanticized the way they were because it showed that people of all stations in life could throw off the class system.  Gunfighters like Wild Bill and wild west performers like Buffalo Bill Cody demonstrated that through western expansion, not old money from Europe, people could become wealthy and independent through panning for gold, winning at gambling, or gunfighting bad guys in dusty streets.   I would point to the magical Second Amendment and say to anybody that the key to casting off the class system in America is in the Bill of Rights, especially the Second Amendment.  The right to own and carry a gun for your self-defense means that you cannot be forced into a pecking order position where the strongest and fastest can step ahead of you in life and take the best spouse and the most money.  If you can shoot, you can have the world at your feet.  You can be small, fat, tall, and ugly, but you can also be rich just like anybody else in aristocracy, and you can have a clean and independent life if you dare to.  That is the short answer to that original question.  For the long answer, I’d say read the book.  But to get to the gist of it, pecking orders are a shackle on our minds that we need to be free of.  Gun ownership is the first step to taking those shackles off not so that you can shoot people who are in front of you.  But so that you can know that they can’t force themselves on you and push you into a position on that pecking order where you don’t want to be.  And it is in that mindset that freedom is born. 

Only when you stop acknowledging the class system can you bring down the aristocrats of old who want Marxism to put them in the upper class to have the best of what the world offers without actually being the best at anything.  To the point that Hank Johnson rules over the hard-working machine shop worker because he makes more money, well, the assumption is that money indicates where we all are on the pecking order of life.  If an ugly guy tries to pick up a nice-looking woman in a bar, she won’t pay him any mind and will blow him off quickly.  At first glance, fair or not, she doesn’t want his DNA to make a bunch of ugly kids.  But, if that ugly guy has a lot of money, well then, she will likely talk to him. She’ll put up with the ugly kids for the nice house and not worry about money for the rest of her life. That’s the effect of the pecking order. We’ve allowed those rules to shape our culture in such away.  But when someone like Hank Johnson makes more money than us, we accept that he is higher up the pecking order than we are, so we naturally obey him, even when we know better.  The key is to stop thinking like that and to start thinking like a gunfighter.  You don’t have to shoot anybody to make your point.  All you need to do is stop playing their game and know that you can be anything you want; you can make all the money you wish to, if only you dare to in America.

Saving America: We’ve become stupid, its time to change that

We have to become Smarter as a Nation

For my own anger management, the travel I’ve done around America so far in 2021 has been very redeeming; I’d recommend it to anybody who has found themselves stressed out over the election of 2020 to put things in perspective.  My travel certainly did it for me, especially after spending one of my travel days at Mt. Rushmore and Deadwood on the same day.  All of my kids have been significantly harmed by Covid.  I have personally been hurt by it, just as everyone has.  I took Covid very personally.  The government was anti-Constitutional, and I see nothing in life that is worth violating those laws.  Then when you add the election fraud and the reality of having the most progressive administration in the history of America inserted in our government, ruining all our lives even further, I was either ready to blow up and become the character from the movie, Falling Down.  Or I was going to figure out something that has eluded civilization so far and bring back the boons of it for the benefit of all.  So I picked the latter and hit the road with my entire family in our RV, and we had a marvelous time discovering America and seeing many things that I had only read about.  To say that any of the places were my favorite places would be disingenuous.  Everything was wonderful.  But I found at Mt. Rushmore an itch I had been trying to scratch for years, and I can only tell you that it eased my mind considerably.   A combination of that travel day, reading all the books I bought along the way, and reading them nightly at our campsites in my favorite chair set up next to my portable traveling office gave me a fresh perspective that I did not think possible.  But it was possible, and I would like to share the results with others out there, such as you, dear reader who might find comfort in those results. 

After our last trip to Europe, my wife and I decided that we didn’t want to visit overseas anywhere again until we saw almost everything in our own country.  It took us a few years to build up to it, but we bought an RV and committed ourselves to the task.  At the time, we didn’t know the world would be turned upside down, but that it did only elevated the urgency to travel more.  After the massive letdown of our government with Covid and the obvious disappointment on Election Day 2020, where people went to bed thinking Trump won, then waking up seeing that Biden had, we accelerated our plans. We hit the road so I could think things through.  I needed to go out into the deserts of our country away from everyone and think.  To stop by gas stations and not use their dirty bathrooms, but those in our RV.  To get our drinks out of the refrigerator and climb off the grid for a while.  Also, to read lots of books without hotel staff bothering me or even bothering to go out to dinner.  I wanted everything to be with me and to have my home with me at all times, even as the scenery outside that home changed by the hour.  I think a culmination of all those elements made Mt. Rushmore much more potent for me.

As we visited Mt. Rushmore, I was thinking of the British Museum in London, and the Louvre in Paris, even some of the temples and monuments I had visited in Japan and I have to say, it was my favorite place of all, so far in my life.  I’ve been to many exotic locations worldwide, even most exquisitely, the temples and pyramids of the Mayan culture, and Mt. Rushmore was the best.  It far exceeded my expectations.  It was not because of the fine stonework and the viewing platforms they had erected but because the entire place was dedicated to intelligence and philosophy.  It was the perfect place for me at the ideal time for my thoughts, and I came away with some authentically fresh perspective.  It was that itch I had always been trying to scratch, and I felt a tremendous amount of relief after visiting there.  At that same time as I was at that monument, my publisher was putting the final touches of my Gunfighter’s Guide to Business out for my last review, which I had been structuring as a strategy guide for making businesses successful, but countries as well.  So, I was in the perfect place, and this is a feeling that will stay with me for a long time. 

We often take it for granted that our country can handle anything.  We’ve allowed our people to become corrupt, sexually obsessed, drug-influenced, and, through our public education system, turned into absolute idiots.  We weren’t born that way, but we have allowed many jealous outside influences to harm our intellects as a country, and we have now seen the result.  We have seen the attacks on our culture culminate into the mass calamity of our times.  But still, I saw in people during that trip, all day there at Mt. Rushmore, then up in Deadwood, Americans are so resilient.  Even with all the devastation, these were not conquered people.  The system of American freedom had proven that even with all the pitfalls we have experienced, our nation could withstand it all.  But to indeed have a great country, we needed places of intelligence to raise our intellects to where a great country should expect to be.  If we wanted to save America from the attackers worldwide who wanted to bring it down, many of who are now acting as domestic enemies, we would have to get smarter as a culture. 

As usual for me, books and time to read them helped my anxieties tremendously, and they would do the same for you.  For anybody.  And to truly save this country, that is the key to not just saving it but keeping it that way.  Mt. Rushmore was built to remind people, such as in times like these, why we tried to create a country in the first place.  It worked so well, we have taken it for granted, and many people have allowed themselves to be seduced by the antics of the world.  They have been seduced by stupidity and told that it was a virtue.   Well, stupidity is not a virtue.  We were told that we should lower our defenses and allow insurgents to raid us through our schools, through our businesses, and corrupt our politics so that there would be no sign of a republic for which we could hope to stand.   If we want to keep our country great, we must get more intelligent as a culture; we have to return to the times of readers like Lincoln and Roosevelt.  Of Jefferson, who started the Library of Congress with his collection of books.  America was built on philosophy and intelligence.  It was a divorce from the stupidity of the world, not in adoration of it.  And even in our own family, my wife and I have traveled the world only to realize that the best things were always around us.  Yet we did not see those places because the world was saying that everything else was great.  Well, I’ve been to those places, and nothing was better than Mt. Rushmore.  And there has been no more satisfying experience than in reading the books I brought from there.  If I seem content in my thoughts these days, it’s because of this minor boon, which I think has the power to change the world.

China Started World War III Years Ago: Just because they never declared it, their actions show they are out for blood and spoils

China is at War with America

Yes, we have been in World War 3 for a while now, and our primary villain this time is China. I’ve talked about that for years, it’s not new, but many are just now starting to see it.  I understand the pain and fear that people are feeling now.  But that doesn’t change the fact; China has made it clear they plan to take over America within 15 years.  That conversion process is occurring as we speak and is why they were so bold in unleashing Covid as a manufactured pandemic during 2020 shutting down the American economy.  Of course, China handled the pandemic well because they knew it was all a fake, intended to drain other nations’ economies and fill China up.  It is the Art of War, a book over 2000 years old.  China hasn’t been shy about it. It’s only been recently where the intentions started to become real for people now that the results of the 2020 election are pointing back at China for a massive cheat that appears evident to now have happened.  They meant to overthrow our presidential pick and to replace him with the pick of the communist party.  Their representative in the White House, the Joe Biden administration, is their ground game in this war.  Even that sounds fictional to many people, but hey, it’s on the Hunter laptop.  The evidence is all right there.  It may be painful to look at it, but it is there, clear for all who dare see it.

As I talk about in the video above, Americans still love innate talent and natural genius to academic skill. A significant part of the Chinese strategy has been to convert our society to a college-driven, sold aristocracy.  In that way, they could control the way our community thinks and how we place value on job titles.  But if I don’t seem concerned about losing this war to China, it’s because I know Americans, and they value other things besides educated skills controlled by bureaucrats.  They may play the game to have a good job, and have a decent house, and put their kids in school in a decent neighborhood.  But at their cores, they are rebels who value shooting from the hip in a crisis instead of structured process-driven thinking.  The communist Chinese count on America to become more like them by controlling entertainment, news media, social media, education, and politics.  They think and have built their whole plan around turning Americans into the Chinese, and I am pretty optimistic that isn’t possible.  They will never be able to pull that off, so their goals will not be achievable.  But that doesn’t change the fact that they intend to win, and that is worth a declaration of war and a lead-up to consequences that will cost them dearly. 

This war isn’t different from wars in the past; it must have been scary for people during the Civil War or the War of 1812.  Or even World War II, when men rushed off to face a known enemy in Hitler and women, went to manufacturing plants to make war supplies.  Nobody knew what the outcomes would be.  We have become soft in the world; we always expect to win, to be the best, and that it will all take minimal effort from us to maintain.  That has left us vulnerable, so we should not be surprised that an enemy of America would seek to exploit us.  Or shall we say, enemies, which is much more descriptive of the situation.  We have a jealous world out there.  Many of them hate America because they aren’t America.  And China knows it can’t win in the world under the philosophy of communism unless they can convince Americans to follow them, to become like them.   China wants to destroy us.  More specifically, they want to destroy capitalism.  They want to keep us, they want to keep our infrastructure, but they want the country and its economic power.  They have used debt to leverage their way into our culture.  They have used the promise of their 1.4 billion people to seduce corporations into playing for communism rather than staying loyal to American audiences.  And they carried on the work started by the Russians during the Cold War of infiltrating our education system to raise generations of left-leaning people who would be accessible to conquer at some point in the future.  Well, that future came alive in 2020, and they have shown their intentions, and for many, it is scary.  It means that the world isn’t so safe.  The lives of their children are indeed in jeopardy.  And tomorrow may not have American flags in it based on their point of view. 

That’s why I say to everyone now, the Chinese are at war with us, but they cannot beat us.  They have had to shoot their intentions too early and have been exploited in ways they were unprepared for.  So please don’t get caught in the drama of their purposes.  Focus on beating them.  That can be done quickly by keeping true the key to all things American, Americans that love innate talent and natural genius to academic skill.  That is the key to winning against China, removing the process from the war, and applying heart and soul.  China cannot compete with those ingredients, and their objective of taking America over by 2035 will be easily averted.  But do not mistake the situation as something that can accommodate inaction.  And when you get your chance, and you will, do not let up off the Chinese communists.  Drive the point home and make them the laughing stock of the world.  They were the ones who attacked us, so they brought it on themselves.  They hoped to play this communist game while working for world peace and economic stability and joined arm and arm with the rest of the world’s nations.  While we did all that, they took their swipe at us, and they went for the kill.

However, when China went for the kill, they missed, and we are here to send the consequences back to them with interest.  And it is something we should certainly do, is to collect on that interest.  Do not show them mercy.  Do not hold hands with the domestic terrorists who aligned themselves with China.  And leave the compassion to religion on Sunday.  Today, make them pay with everything they value and take from them all their hopes for the future.  As you learn more and more about the election of 2020 and understand to what extent China manipulated the Covid-19 virus to destroy our economy and ruin the presidency of Donald Trump, remember they did it all to get at you and your family.  They meant to destroy your life and those of your entire family and did not care what the consequences were.  They wanted to destroy our country, and it falls on us to do something about it now, in this time.  This is our World War II.  This is our War of 1812.  Tomorrow is, of course, uncertain.  But what we do know is that we must do what we must do, and that is to call China our enemy in this war and to make them pay.  To make them bend to our will and eat out of our hand.  And to teach the enemies of America what consequences look like.  But before that happens, we must deal with the domestic enemies first.  What you don’t ever want is to be like the poor people of Hong Kong, begging for freedoms that were taken from you.  It is a lot harder to fight for freedom after you’ve lost it than while you still have it. That’s where we stand today.  But the war is real, even if everyone is pretending that it’s never been declared.

It Isn’t That Trump Lost: Its all about the fact that Biden never won

Its not that Trump Lost, Biden Never Won

Here’s the problem with the election fraud, which is a significant problem now that we have an established order caught deeply committed to a way of life, as the public, in general, voted to reject that life.  The question is not whether or not there was election fraud or if there was enough of it to change the election.  I feel comfortable at this time to say that there was.  Joe Biden did not win that election of 2020 fair and square.  And as I’ve said from the beginning of Covid, the whole purpose of the new science protocols was to provide cover for a global desire to get rid of Trump, expand communism to the world, and offer cheating options.  It was always about changing the way we deal with natural viruses as societies.  It was about giving power to governors and health directors instead of resorting to a military option of global force.  These methods were passive-aggressive invasions against the American Constitution that progressives have always desired to “progress” beyond.  Progressives, globalists, communists, all of those types, have zero respect for the laws of America, and many of those people have infiltrated our government already.  So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that they care not at all about breaking any American laws.  The Chinese are not respectful of American law.  They intend to conquer us and change the laws to communism anyway, so none of the terrible things we have witnessed occurred by minds who feel any amount of guilt about it.  With that in mind, it would be best not to cry about it now and point to our laws and declare that they broke the law.  We all know that, and they don’t care.  Not one bit. 

But what they do care about, progressives, is that they came up with a philosophy based on Karl Marx way back in the late 1800s and have been soft-selling it to the public all that time.  And they hoped that from generation to generation, they would slow boil us all into the kind of communism they have in China.  Progressives want to preserve a type of European aristocracy and communism worldwide, giving them that option as a ruling class of bureaucrats.  That’s why progressives support Cuba, why they always have their hands in Iran, and why China has been allowed to be a global power.  The plan was in place even at the end of World War II.  American forces protecting China from Japan then were always intended to weaken the country for the communist push coming out of the North.  The plan was always meant for communists to take over in China at the end of the war.  Germany and Japan, in general, were nurtured by progressives in Europe to usher in the philosophy of Marx for the rest of the world.  That’s why Neville Chamberlain got caught pandering to Hitler, only to have it backfire.  This plan is ancient and is always doomed from the start.  But progressives have always thought, “if only” this or that happened, they would gain power, and they would rule the world.  That is how they got caught in this most recent bear trap and why they have eggs on their faces now.  Of course, they cheated in the election of 2020.  People picked Trump, they couldn’t deal with it, and they did everything—and I mean everything—to take away that choice because it was disruptive to their multi-century global plans to spread Marxism, which they would control, to every corner of the globe.  And at present, they pretty much control the rest of the world, every country to some extent.  But they do not control Americans.  They might influence American politics, but they do not maintain the spirit of the American people.   They slow-boiled their attempt to capture their minds, but with Trump, it proved that all those efforts had failed, so now they have gone as far as they can go, and now they have hit a brick wall.

Like most things that progressives do, they do not have a plan B.  They always planned for a takeover of the American way of life, but nothing else.  They weren’t looking for a mixed economy.  They wanted domination, and if it didn’t work, they didn’t know what to do.  We have seen attempts to explain this progressive way of thinking in dystopian novels like Animal Farm and 1984.  Ayn Rand tried to warn people, but in the end, it didn’t matter.  People in America were free, and as long as they had the illusion of freedom, they were pretty good with things.  But now, that illusion has been shattered.  Progressives know they are in danger.  They have bet everything on a change state that would use the promise of safety to push people into Marxism controlled by an all-knowing centralized government.  They couldn’t handle it because people voted for Trump to change that plan and did it twice.  The first time caught them off guard.   The second time, they planned to use Covid to cheat in the election, and when Trump was looking to win anyway, with 75 million known votes, it scared them, and they went all-in on the cheat.  The media was involved.  Most of our political system was in on it.  Our education system was in on it, they all shared a Marxist philosophy that they had been committed to their entire lives, yet the thing they wanted most, the approval of the American people, was denied to them.  They were hurt, malicious, and seeking blood for that rejection.  And now that they’ve gone as far as they did and have been caught, they are lost as to what to do next.  So they are clammering for more Covid terror to divert people’s attention from the massive failure of their multi-century incursion. 

The question is, what happens next?   Well, I am satisfied that I know.  I’ve traveled the entire country this year, and I am quite clear where Trump voters are on the matter.  Out of 300 million people, including children, there are well north of 75 million people who will not move off their position.  Progressives can’t change that with illegal immigration.  They can’t change it by trying to focus on racism which is only 13% of the entire American population.  They can’t do it with the fear of global warming.  The fear of covid.  The fear of anything.  Americans have freedom legally, they enjoy their freedom immensely, and they would rather fight than comply, which is evident after the so-called insurrection of January 6th, 2021.

Now with the election fraud results coming out of Maricopa County in Arizona, that alone are enough to change the results of the election and the massive fraud found in Fulton County, Georgia, the cover for progressivism has been ripped away.  Even if we don’t have a legal means of putting Trump back in the White House, everyone knows what people picked.  The world knows.  With all the tricks of big tech.  With the complete conquest of our schools, our children, our families.  With even the fear of death thrown in our faces, people still picked freedom over a big government to keep them safe.  And that was never the plan.  Progressives don’t have the guts to conduct an armed insurrection against us.  All they have are these passive-aggressive tricks they have been utilizing, all of which have been rejected.  So regardless of who sits in the White House, the knowledge of what people picked is laid open for all to see.  And it wasn’t the progressive offerings.  It was America First, and it will remain that way as the rest of the world wanting the same freedoms plan as we speak to do the same to their progressive governments.  And that dam is about to burst, as I explain in the video above.

What to Learn From Michael Avenatti: We were a better country when we hung criminals for their crimes

The Changing Political Landscape

Now that Michael Avenatti has cried in court and was sent to jail for two and a half years for his attempted extortion of Nike as a corporation, we need to take a moment as a country and reflect on who he was.  And how many of them are still left in our public square.  I would offer that Dr. Fauci is no different as a shyster than Michael Avenatti or Joe Biden.  We are talking about people who know they are scamming people when they do what they do, and they count on people to fall for their scams as they exert a forceful personality to commit crimes and get away with it.  Michael Avenatti, for many of us, was an easy villain; we could see that he was a wolf in the henhouse, and we warned that he was such.  But many, including most of the media and Beltway establishment, saw him as a vehicle for their desires at insurrection.  They did not want a personality like Trump in the White House.  Trump stood against this long-designed socialist agenda that is now unleashed upon us.  I remembered first warning people of this socialist agenda several decades ago, and people didn’t want to hear it.  And ironically, those are the same kind of people that scoundrels like Michael Avenatti target for their gains in life at the shell game of politics, and they almost always get away with it.  So for perspective, I would say that most people in executive positions in media and politics are on par with Michael Avenatti as far as their ability to schmooze over an unsuspecting public.  The difference with Avenatti is he lived too high for too long and went after a corporation with more financial resources than the government itself, and they weren’t going to stand for that.  So he got busted and got a little jail time.  The punishment isn’t nearly what it should be, but it’s enough for us all to learn an important lesson.

One of the great books I read from my big journey out West recently was one on the outlaws of South Dakota, specifically the Deadwood area.  Back in the early days of justice, hanging was the means of dealing with people like Avenatti.  We didn’t just put them in jail for a few years to hide them from the public, to get sexually molested in the shower by other inmates, and endure prison food for a short time in their lives.  Michael Avenatti is young enough to get out of jail in a few years and live a whole life forgetting entirely that he ever went to prison.  But back at the start of our republic, we tended to hang these kinds of criminals, and reading back through history; I think it made us a better society.  Usually, just as Avenatti did in court, where he started crying and apologizing to his victims, people about to die for their crimes were very remorseful.  Reading of the many cases of crimes where the criminals were killed, everything from stealing horses to murder, the soon-to-be-dead people would reflect on their status and become highly remorseful to the point where you had to wonder why they couldn’t have seen the light and lived a good life before their killing.  The public would come out and watch these killings, and I think it impacted the spectators to do that reflection for themselves and maybe not be such scumbags in their own lives.  So in that way, hanging was a very moral way of dealing with crime and punishment.  It elevated in the community a lesson that the criminals exposed as one last act of a living human being. Hearing the regret from most hardened criminals was a lesson that kept the rest of society in check. 

But today, because people like Michael Avenatti know that society has little method to fight back against derelict behavior, they are incentivized to live such lives.  There was nothing to deter Avenatti from exploiting a porn actress in Stormy Daniels from attempting to knock the very essence of law and order from the White House in the Trump presidency.  To do so, Avenatti was encouraged by every method at his disposal.  Most of us could see what a scumbag he was, but he knew there was nothing we could do about it, so he was free to be the terror he was.  Without question, Hunter Biden agrees.   So long as his dad runs the Justice Department, he’s never going to get in trouble for anything.  Trump ran the Justice Department for a while, but he refused to abuse his power.  So the power abused him. That’s why good people are always at a disadvantage to criminals like Michael Avenatti.  That is also why Dr. Fauci never thinks he’s going to be fired for his work with the Chinese to build a bioweapon out of Covid to destroy the capitalist country of America during an election year.  The system itself wants to breed Dr. Fauci types, lifelong employees overpaid, and keen to advocate always for the spread of big government to rule over all our lives and pave the way for global communism.  If we were in 1870, Dr. Fauci would have been found out and hung in a town square for the way he has mislead people.  It would have been seen as a crime, not as a public service.  Hunter Biden would have experienced the same kind of treatment.  Being the son of the President wouldn’t have shielded him from justice the way it does today.  And people like Joe Biden would have never made it to the White House.  His antics would have likely put him at the end of a rope decades before gaining that kind of power over our government. 

For people who say that we were too harsh as a country with our hangings before the start of the 20th Century, these are the same people who are telling us that transexual bathrooms are good, that Critical Race Theory is all the rage for Democrats even though it was Democrats who were the advocates of slavery and its preservation.  Joe Biden’s predecessors were the members of the KKK.  Republicans as a party were created to end slavery.  But the con artists of our modern government can lie and manipulate whatever they desire because there is no punishment for their actions. Instead, they are encouraged to perform their ill deeds in the light of day, just as Michael Avenatti was.  Avenatti didn’t know that corporations like Nike run our government and wanted Trump to follow these new rules.  Once Avennatti stopped serving them by trying to get rid of Trump, then he became the villain. Attempting to extort money from Nike was attacking the government that was really in charge, and that’s why he got jail time.  And things became that corrupt right out under our noses because the criminals got tired of being hanged for every minor crime that came up.  They instead moved into government jobs, changed the rules, and took away those public reminders that doing bad things might end up making you swing from a rope.  Nothing kept the youth out of trouble than in having their parents take them to a public hanging.  In the absence of such discipline, we have made a society of Michael Avenattis. There are many more out there to fill the void as Avenatti himself sits in jail for a while only to get out again shortly and bring his terror to the world once again. We’d all be better off if he was swinging from a rope instead, as he would have been a century ago.

The Biggest Cost of Election Fraud and Covid: A loss of trust in government forever

People Have Lost Trust in Government, Completely

Yes, the cracks are breaking loose in the dam of progressive sentiment that was meant to hold back the election fraud of 2020.  Likely, election fraud has always been there, and both sides, Republicans and Democrats, have known about it.  And they haven’t minded; the game has been rigged from the beginning.  Corporations can pick and choose the winners of elections with digital voting machines. If a politician greases the skids before the election, they can almost always know that they will win because election fraud can make it so.  Perhaps the most remarkable thing we learned during the Trump presidency is to what extent this election fraud has been occurring and has been shaping our republic not by our vote but by the pay-to-play scams at the heart of the various digital voting machines. Those machines can switch votes to whatever money can buy, as the evidence is revealing.  For reference, I would refer to the Maricopa County discoveries as well as the Fulton County evidence into election fraud recently flipping votes to Joe Biden from Donald Trump.  That isn’t a fantasy from a Trump-voting public; it’s a fact revealed reluctantly by many sources because the fraud is so blatant.  That provoked Democrats to scamper to some defense; the legislative body in Texas fled the state to avoid voting for voter reform attached to voter ID there.  Biden himself went to Pennsylvania to get in front of the story, beginning to do their audits.  But the cracks in the dam are cracking open faster than they can plug those cracks.  It’s at a point now where they won’t be able to stop it. 

Many people would be in trouble in a world functioning from justice, and they may be before all is said and done.  But criminals who will commit election fraud on the scale it was performed are also capable of other tricks to hide their crimes, such as the whole situation with Covid-19.  I said it initially, saying that Covid was created to push Trump out of office because the Chinese were losing their trade deal with him, and their economy was declining fast.  So, they had to eliminate Trump (China) to satisfy their global domination goals and worked with the American Democrats to advance their cause.  The DNC has essentially represented the Chinese communists in our American government. They all wanted to get rid of President Trump and the audacious notion that we, the people, could elect our representative in the White House freely.  Doing what China does, and how they control so much of our media anyway, they went about unleashing a weaponized coronavirus to shut down our economy. At the same time, they kept theirs open, bringing great harm to the rest of the world economically. 

Some history on the SARS virus disputing the NOVEL designation

But in America, people have grown tired of hearing about stupid Covid lockdowns and the dumb idea of putting on masks to go into public.  Those were diversions instigated by a communist-controlled medical industry intent to conceal the strategy of China against America for which the Democrats were their agents.  Oh, I know, that sounds very conspiratorial.  But the puzzle pieces are in the box, folks, and we can see the pieces with the edges.  The rest of the puzzle isn’t hard to assemble if you look at it.  Dr. Fauci was caught in the act with China and the weaponized Covid-19 variant.  The media cut a deal with China thinking they would rule the future, in many ways that the media did in the 80s when they thought Japan would rule the world economically. We’ve put this puzzle together before. There’s nothing fantastic about it, just in believing that people would be so audacious to think it would work and that they’d get away with it.  People are tired of Covid and started ignoring the health administrators from the government, and now they are looking at election fraud, which Covid was always meant to cover.  And now the story is breaking loose.  Democrats can’t stop it. 

It starts with the death counts of Covid.  There are many pro and against factions trying to dissect the death count numbers from year to year, starting backward in 2020 then tracing the trend back to 2019, 2018 on to 2001 and beyond.  And guess what, the trends per year are not significant.  Certainly not to justify the half a million-plus people they say have died in the United States.  Death counts were altered to manipulate the data to make Covid-19 appear more deadly than it was.  And once people figured out that Covid wasn’t so deadly, they stopped listening to the government.  Now that the covers are ripped off Democrat’s scheme with China for world domination, they want that safety blanket back.  If people aren’t afraid of dying, they will be more open to looking at the election fraud that Covid was used to remove Trump from office and perform a coup instigated by international, hostile forces.  For some strange reason, everyone in this malicious behavior thought they would get away with this monstrous behavior.  But they’ve all been caught, and they have no idea what to do about it.

Yes, there was election fraud. A lot of it.

As everyone goes into cover-up mode and the media tries to walk back their complicity into spreading Covid-19 lies, and their responsibility for actually killing people by denying them information about hydroxychloroquine and ultraviolet light as a means of containing the coronavirus escalates, the real tragedy is slowly coming to the minds of the criminals in our government.  People have lost trust in the government.  It may take a century to build back all the trust that has been lost in our government over the last decade.  President Trump was an attempt by the people of our American nation to believe in that government once again.  But the government’s behavior in trying to remove people’s choices is something they will never forget.  The government has lost its authority by crying wolf too often and using the fear they instigated to perform a political insurrection.  It won’t matter if nobody goes to jail, or we fill them with the white-collar criminals of the Beltway for what they’ve done; the net result is that a loss of trust in government for the sake of it has been eradicated and won’t be quickly built again.  To earn back that trust, it would take a near-perfect government many years to repair because people won’t forget. They’ve been burnt, abused, and lied to.  And they see it now, and the cost of that is more damaging than any legal matter.  When people laugh at the Biden administration over this Delta variant of Covid in a silly attempt to distract people away from the election fraud issues or to show command over the people to get a mandatory government vaccine, you can see that nothing the Biden administration does will have any weight to it.  People know what happened, and Biden and his Democrats have lost the American people’s trust, which will turn out to be the most significant punishment they’ll ever receive.  And they deserve the pain of it.  They sold out our country, and they have to pay for that.

Trump’s Challenge to Big Tech: The result will be 12 total years as president

Trump’s Challenge to Big Tech

As we’ve been talking about since the beginning of the Big Tech censorship against President Trump, legal action of some kind was inevitable.  It’s good to see Trump initiate that activity as he has in July of 2021.  It takes time to build these cases.  It is also great to see so many people joining him in that effort.  Google, Facebook, Twitter, and all the rest have it coming.  They abused their power and what they did was quite purposeful.  They used free speech to control speech, at least the legal premise of free speech.  Because they are also private companies, which is just another subtle attack on how corporations can become big and financially competitive with nations yet hide under the protection of the United States federal government to implement their will.  It would take a big name like Trump to take them on, and they kept poking and poking until he did it.  So now we will have the court battle we’ve needed for a long time to settle the matter, free speech against private companies and what role they can play in the election process, which based on the election fraud that is emerging has been vast.  Especially regarding Facebook.  As global companies now, the Big Tech social media companies have obviously no regard for American sovereignty and illustrate a problem that existed essentially since Andrew Jackson’s laissez-faire capitalism gave Cornelius Vanderbilt the ability to operate large corporations as a competitive rival of our own elected government. 

Up until recently, really where corporations started looking after that dangled carrot of communism in China with their 1.3 billion people, we’ve managed as a nation to walk that fine line between corporate influence and elected government.  Many of the skinny jean progressives of Silicone Valley don’t understand that China is not the lucrative market that has been sold to them.  Not all those people will be allowed to participate in the world’s economy; they are under tight controls there, so selling out America to the Chinese will always end only one way—with grave disappointment.  Film production companies have had to slowly learn that over the last decade, only to nearly be wiped out entirely by the Chinese bioweapon Covid-19 meant to torpedo the economy during an election year for retaliation over Trump’s trade deals.  (Where’s the proof—everywhere if you look at it.  Most don’t want to look at it) I’ve also mentioned in many other articles that the problem with tech companies, what Google collects on people, and how Facebook builds profiles is that people do not reveal their entire essence on social media platforms.  You may get consumer behavior or sexual behavior patterns, but learning the totality of human need has proven elusive to the tech companies.  The geeks who work in those places often don’t know what questions they need to pose under online tracking to understand a human intellect.  So even with all their tampering, they still ended up with a society that elected Donald Trump twice.  The first time the FBI tried to erase the results for them as they had promised government they would do.  The second time they participated in massive voter fraud with the help of Chinese tampering in four specific counties in crucial swing states, and they were caught.  But not before they made a real mess of things and declared victory even as they were recorded cheating.  The court cases for this will take years to sort out, but they have trouble on the horizon for their election tampering that most people haven’t been able to wrap their minds around yet. 

But the Big Tech skinny jean geeks didn’t care.  They were global corporations operating in many ways more significantly than the United States government that people had elected for a republic.  And they made their move that corporations had been toying with for well over a hundred years, steering their companies away from American sovereignty and toward a global government which they would influence from the inside out.  Cornelius Vanderbilt, in his day, for example, or even J.D. Rockefeller, were patriotic toward America, and when they could have, they avoided going total globalist.  But that was a day when trains ruled, and Europe was far behind.  A hundred years later, with a much smaller world brought together by Big Tech, it isn’t surprising that companies like Google and Facebook would abandon the American concept altogether in favor of something they created.  Even though Google told us ten years ago that they were libertarians and would never abuse their power, they have grossly abused their power and now have lots of trouble.  Many think that Google doesn’t care and that Facebook is too big to fail.  But as I say many times, the way to beat these guys is through their branding.  They care about their brand, and after the 2020 election, their brands have taken a massive hit.  The corrosive effects have not yet been measured, but they will show up in 2021 going into 2022, and it will be painful for them.  Many young people do not care about Facebook; it’s an older model and quickly has become the social media platform for older people.  And when you add election fraud to the mix, and that many young people from 18-25 are starting to turn to Trump despite the Marxism taught in public schools, the Big Tech companies have some serious problems with their brand. 

Yes, young people are looking toward the Republican party anyway, no matter what kind of influence Facebook and Google thought they had with censorship.  Their censorship worked in China, but the people there have been conquered for many thousands of years.  China has never recovered fully from the rule over the Mongols. They’ve had some ruling dynasties, such as the Han. Still, as a people, they have never evolved into the kind of independent people that Americans are, which I talk about extensively in my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business.  If only the skinny jeans execs in Silicon Vally had asked me, I could have saved them a lot of headaches.  But they took their shot, they put their chips on the wrong horse, and now they’ve been exposed.

The court case with Trump itself will be a tough one for the Supreme Court as measured today.  But by the time they hear the case, the world will be a much different place. Other factors will come into play, such as public sentiment, for the same reasons that the Supreme Court did not want to hear about election fraud after the 2020 election because they didn’t want the radicals in the Democrat party to burn down their homes.  They will be influenced by an angry public newly aware of Google and Facebook’s role in stealing the election from a person those same people voted for.  Right now, it’s too inconvenient to know.  Too many media executives are currently engaged in the cover-up.  But during this case, as it brews in the legal world, those execs will retire, move to the Bahamas to take their money and run, and the replacements will do what they do in every corporate culture, they’ll be thrown under the bus, and the cover-ups will be ended.  In the end, that’s how it will go down, and we’ll all be better off as a result.  And, we’ll get another four years of Trump anyway.  In this way, Trump will be able to be president effectively for 12 total years thanks to the follies of Big Tech and their powergrab at the expense of American sovereignty.

Biden Folding Under Pressure: The way to beat the bad guys

Biden Folding Under Pressure

For a while, I thought we might have to have an armed conflict to restore order to our nation.  But over time, which is reflected in my new hat and is part of why I bought it in Jackson, Wyoming, I have come to think of a different strategy that keeps us all on the moral high ground.  Immediately after the election, I set to work to finish my book on strategy, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, to help implement this new approach.  And to finish the book and get all the elements it needed that had been missing, my wife and I hit the road for a significant part of 2021 and traveled the west to get a good bead on what our country is and where it’s going.  I had to do that because the media presentation of our country was a bad one and could be traced back to corporate leaders who were guiding their companies toward global Marxism for the specific purpose of securing new markets for their products.  It was a gamble made by big companies looking to leverage their bets with some illegal gaming.  And they were looking to use the gray area of corporate influence in government to implement the strategy.  But how much of America had fallen, and how much was there to work with.  To know that, I had to do the traveling and edit in the field to get this strategy right. At a gut level, I felt I understood things well.  Yet validation of that gut feeling was needed, and that’s what I did, and at the end of it, I bought that nice white hat because it represented where my mind was on the matter.  It wasn’t a fight in the streets or an invasion of the Capitol that was needed.  We had to remove the cancer of progressivism from our lives without killing the patient of capitalism, which was the threat by that other side to protect themselves.  And we had to do it door to door, corporation by corporation, and nation to nation, essentially all at the same time. After my quest, I felt I had a way to do that, and I intend to share that with everyone out there. 

The first thing you must do, which is reflected in my white hat for my personal life, is realizing that we are the ones who have been correct and remain the protectors of Natural Law and the Order that must come from that direction.  We are not criminals.  We are the law, so there is no need to do anything, to invade anything as an action.  It’s not even our job to “go do” anything except for standing by what we already have.  The goal of these attackers of our laws and our country want to put us into a chasing our tail position.  They want to provoke us into action, and you can look around and see that they have most of us in a reactionary state based on a feeling of victimhood.  After all, how the news is presented to us, we are losing something over here, and we are supposed to cry about how unfair it is. We find ourselves protesting and crying about it as if by doing so, we admit that we have lost control of these new forces, validating their existence and intentions as a true threat.  Instead, the real solution to these insurgency problems is to use pressure to crush the enemy. An excellent example of this has been the Trump family going around and giving speeches criticizing the Biden administration and progressivism in general as if they were still in the White House.  That pressure is causing Joe Biden and his handlers in the Democrat party a lot of trouble, as I talk about in the above video.  Much of what I talk about in my new book is a kind of step-by-step guide for building that pressure and applying it to aggressors in your life no matter what level of life they present themselves.  And to teach everyone how to do what Trump is doing, apply pressure as a management resource to the bad characters out there.  Trump knows how to perform these methods as a successful executive over many years.  But to help him, more freedom fighters need to understand how to apply those same methods because that is the best method of fighting back against the insurgency of our government that we have witnessed over the last several years.

And you can see it in Biden as he has had to answer the expectations that have come from the recent Trump speeches.  The plan was for a complete conversion of American life by now; after a year of Covid and a stolen election, the American people were supposed to be broken like a bucking horse that finally gives up.  They are not prepared for the kind of resistance they are seeing.  And what I did see which I needed to, is how much of that fight is still in America.  Well, I did see it, and I saw it first hand.  After all my travel, there aren’t 80 million people who voted for Joe Biden; like everyone tells us happened, the math isn’t there.  So we are all like those white-hatted sheriffs of a Wild West town overtaken by outlaws, cattle rustlers, and other criminals who have taken advantage of good people to make a lot of money for themselves.  The Biden family is an excellent example of the kind of money we are talking about, which is why nobody wants to discuss the Hunter laptop and all the criminal conduct shown on it, which directly connects the Biden family to criminal enterprises.  There are many other criminals out there, especially in the media, looking for easy money who have allowed corruption to direct them toward these insurrections that we are now concerned with.  And what is needed to fight them is a refusal to accept that state of existence and use that pressure to apply law and order to a criminal class in our government that isn’t prepared to deal with that pressure.  By refusing to accept the election results, for example, the scam on their end falls apart quickly, and they don’t have a plan to deal with it, which is why they are now refusing to talk about it in the White House.  They know they don’t belong there, and their biggest worry is that the ordinary everyday person will figure that out. 

Desperation and hopelessness do not need to be a part of our vocabulary, dear reader.  It’s not so bad out there, as they want you to think.  The way to beat them is to stand by Natural Law and Order.  One of the things I did while traveling was to go to Mt. Rushmore.  I would advise everyone who worries about these kinds of things to take a similar pilgrimage.  Mt. Rushmore spells all this out nicely.  We must remember that we are a republic, not a socialist-leaning democracy.  And that we are a nation of laws, not of humankind’s whims for power grabs. We must stand by natural law and be those white-hatted sheriffs who use the pressure of goodness to smoke out the villainy with our refusal to go along to get along.  We must take away that leverage from our vocabulary and leave them alone, afraid, and exposed.  We have all the tools to do that right now without firing a shot by adhering to our constitutions, state and federal.  And by doing that, we take away the threat to our existence because they do not have the power to do what they are threatening.  After my travels and hundreds and hundreds of hours of reading, I have done with founding documents since that election and finishing my book, its as clear to me as a skyscraper window on the top floor looking out over vast distances on a clear day.  It’s not nearly as bad as they want us to think it is.  The truth is, the bad people are very vulnerable and much easier to beat than they can admit to themselves.

My New Hat From Jackson, Wyoming: A hidden treasure deep in the mountains

My New Hat from Jackson, Wyoming

About a year ago, one of my daughters was in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for a photography assignment in the Teton National Park.  As she waited for all the elements to come together, she stopped by The Beaver Creek Hats and Leather store in the ski town of Jackson to get a new hat, and she found a real treasure trove of a wonderful hat store.  She knew I was looking for some new hats for my collection, so she promptly told me about it.  We made a deal that if we were ever in Jackson, Wyoming together, I would get my next hat there because the variety and quality were unique due to the town’s economic circumstances.  That made it the perfect place for me to get my hat because Jackson is not only the highest per capita income center of the world, but a need for real cowboy hats founded it. It’s a high-altitude kind of place where the sun can do a number on you without some level of protection, making it a great place to buy a cowboy hat that not only looked good but was also functional.  After all, that’s why she had gone there in the first place.  It was quite a pleasant discovery, so at that moment, we started plotting ways to get both of us there at the same time accommodating our busy schedules.  About nine months later, we were in Jackson, Wyoming, with most of our entire immediate family and the first thing we did was buy my new white Stetson that I had been looking for that I needed to purchase for a while now.  My other hats are pretty beat up, and I needed one for some of the formal things I get myself into. 

It’s not that I couldn’t have gotten a hat in Cincinnati or the many other far-flung places I had been this year.  There were opportunities to get hats in other areas, such as Texas and New Mexico.  I saw nice hat stores in Oklahoma and Kansas, but I held out for that Jackson trip with my daughter for one because I had promised her I would.  But for the other, Jackson could afford to serve customers who had more money and therefore could afford to cater to more of the diverse needs of a hat buying public.  That gave me many more options for a very nice Stetson than I would have in other places.  As much as I think they should be, cowboy hats aren’t that popular in other parts of the country, and where they are popular, money isn’t all that easy to come by.  However, I have a particular taste in hats that is difficult to accommodate.  I like wide brims, especially now that I’m older, but I’m not particularly eager to curl them up in ridiculous ways.  I want the benefit of the brim to shield my face and head from the sun and the rain all seasons of the year, and as I did look around in some of those actual cowboy regions for a good hat, most of the styles just didn’t fit my needs for something uniquely me.  Because of that wealth in Jackson, all the correct elements combined, which is why my daughter made a big deal about it in the first place.  Her entire life, I have worn hats.  And well before she ever came along, deep into my childhood, I have always worn hats, specifically cowboy hats or outback hats from Australia. 

I had a lot of thoughts about the Tetons in general and Jackson the town specifically.  The town was wealthy because of Hollywood transplants.  Jackson Hole was the hideout of Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch of western legend.  After the movie with Paul Newman and Robert Redford, many actors made Jackson their home, including Harrison Ford, who has a house right around the corner from the McDonald’s there. That’s how the per capita income became so high because there is a low population density. The people who moved there from Hollywood and other high-paying industries set the benchmark which skewed the numbers from its origins as a cowboy town.  After John D. Rockefeller bought up secretly many of the old ranches of Jackson Hole and turned the Grand Tetons into a National Park, the government stepped in discreetly.   The government of Jackson has a mix of a rugged cowboy town foundation and exterior with the financial wealth of a tiny population that brought with all the California transplants their love of Agenda 21 United Nations policies in zoning which irritated me quite a lot.  But the tourists likely weren’t thinking about those things the way I was.  The Tetons is a paradise on earth where the government has obtained an illusion that they have discovered Utopia.  It is a place isolated from reality as the outside world well beyond the mountains that surrounded it was burning politically and literally.  It reminded me of other places I enjoy a lot, such as Glendale, California, and the Liberty Center area in my hometown.  But to say the least, I liked the way Jackson was, yet I was all too aware of the undercurrent of liberalism that was sapping itself off the fine history of the area. 

But all those elements made for a great cowboy hat buying trip, and I am proud to have found the perfect hat for me.  I am even prouder that I could get that hat with my daughter from that original trip several months prior.  My entire family ended up at that hat store, and it was fun to start a new thing for all of us.  I may make that hat store a regular thing for me.  It used to be for me that I wore the same hat no matter what the occasion and that was fun for me.  A perfect felt hat, after all, can serve such a purpose.  It might be battered a bit from crawling through caves and jumping through broken windows as most of my life has been everyday use for my hats.  But I’m a bit older now, and hats for an occasion are more of a thing than they used to be. I’m not so scrappy and earthy these days, which is a natural evolution.  Sometimes in life, you get where you are going, and you have to figure out what to do when you get there.  Because the mission was to get there, but what comes after is not always so well defined.  If it’s about the adventure, not the destination, then that problem will arise.  But getting there in life has its challenges, and for me, getting a nice hat in Jackson, Wyoming, couldn’t have made me happier.

A distant place on the map that is certainly hard to get to is now much closer.  Jackson by car is not easy.  To make it easy, you pretty much have to fly into it.  To the north is Yellowstone and its vast expanses.  To the south is a long drive up from the deserts of Utah.  To the east are deserts and more mountains and enormous open places.  And to the west was Idaho and a big mountain that must be crossed with 10% grades that take you up and over the range.  So it means something to get to Jackson and buy a hat from there, which enhances my life in positive ways every day in some manner my daughter and I will share for years to come.
