The Experts in Plato’s Cave: Fear of learning the truth

Plato’s Cave Wall

When things start getting disjointed and the pressure starts blurring reality, I always turn to books for clarity—the process of reading books levels out the mind in very productive ways.  I don’t care if it’s a comic book; reading anything helps solve many thought problems.  And that is certainly the case in the news these days, where various Covid variants are scaring people into looking at everything but the fundamental issues of politics.  I told everyone what was coming when we started learning about Dr. Fauci and his connection to China, how China has long ago declared war on America. Still, we have not matched that aggression, and then there are election fraud problems from the 2020 elections.  There are some big topics out there that could topple our government in a very negative way.  There is some bad stuff going on that is now well out of control, so the perspective is needed. That’s when I turn to books to solve problems, and it always works.  Doing extensive reading brought my mind back to an old topic, the Cave Analogy from Plato’s Republic, a favorite.   In the video above, I explain it and how it applies to the politics of our times.  The problem we all have is that we know what is making the shadows on the cave wall. Still, we have an expert class that insists on staying in control of what we see and hear, even though their information is entirely irrelevant for 2021 sensibilities.

If you haven’t heard it before, this problem of experts attempting to shape reality based on their limited perspective is not a new problem.  It goes back several thousand years to around 375 BC to the times of the Greeks when they were trying to figure out how to operate a Republic as a form of government.  The assumption is that we are all chained to a pole looking at a cave wall and behind us in a cave is a fire burning.  Behind us are people walking around, for which we have never seen.  All we know of them is the shadows they cast on the cave wall.  Other people chained with us to a pole facing in the same direction have learned to predict the movements of the shadows on the cave wall depending on what time of day it was.  Again, not knowing that the shadows are caused by people moving about out of our sight.  Well, one person eventually manages to get loose and turn around and see for themselves the source of the shadows.  Breaking free, they attempt to tell the others tied to the poles what can be seen, but the experts don’t want people to pay attention.  So, the freed person goes by themselves into the world beyond the fire into the people moving about, talking with them, and learning who they are.  Eventually, the person finds themselves moving out of the cave altogether, and outside they see the sun and the more significant evidence of civilization.    

This evidence of reality provokes excitement, so the freed person returns to their colleagues tied to the pole and tells them what was seen outside the cave.  This causes anger from the experts because the threat to them is genuine.  Their entire value in existence has been to predict when the shadows will appear on the cave wall and determine their movements.  Obtaining a higher knowledge of what makes the shadows destroys everything that gives power to their lives, and they find it threatening.  They would much prefer to keep the public ignorant to be important by predicting the shadows on the cave wall.  Learning what makes the shadows for such people is the worst thing in the world.  Well, that pretty much spells out the problems of our modern times.  We have a lot of people in politics who make good livings predicting what the shadows will do.  But we live in a time where information is abundant, and we don’t need experts to tell us what things mean.  We have decentralization of information, and if one expert class attempts to keep us facing a direction we don’t want to be facing, we have the choice to look somewhere else anyway.  If we’re going to know what causes the shadows, we can look for ourselves.  That is the tension of our current political world.

Literature is such a good method of resolving problems because, as in the Allegory of the Cave, Plato had the same issues then as we do now.  There is nothing new about what we see out of the behavior of humanity.  There might be some modern tapestries to what we see, but the essence is always the same.  But what we should expect is to learn from history so that we don’t keep repeating it.  I think we can feel sympathy for those experts who only see the value of their lives in predicting where the shadows come from.  Or we can hate them for their attempt to control us.  Dr. Fauci comes to mind, a government expert who has spent his whole life predicting shadows and trying to scare us into behavior the government desired.  For him, we long ago untied ourselves and could see what was causing the shadows, even as the government has insisted that we not look behind us to where the fire cast its shadows.  Notice how we are talking about a Covid variant, but we never talk about a natural solution such as hydroxychloroquine. That’s when you know the expert class doesn’t care about you; all they do care about is their retention of power, their ability to scare you into behaving the way they want you to do, and they use the shadows to do it.  Once you know what causes the shadows, the experts lose all their power.

We have the same problem with the election fraud deniers, who want to look at the cave wall and let the experts translate what we see.  The election fraud of 2020 happened in the world beyond the fire, so the shadows of their existence don’t even show up on the cave wall.  Yet it happened all the same.  It just occurred beyond the vision of what we are looking at.  If we get up and away from our pole and look, we’ll see the evidence in the corner of the cave just beyond the firelight.  It’s not that the evidence isn’t there, but the experts expect to hide it from us by keeping our perspective from turning around and seeing it.  Because if we do get up and see for ourselves, the experts lose their power, which is terrifying.  Then what will happen to them once we realize how much we have been lied to.  For all those reasons and more, I love time with my books.  They are not connected to the internet.  Nobody is tracking what I’m reading by keystrokes.  It’s just me and my book in my reading chair.  If all the power in the world went out, I would still be fine and able to read history and reflect upon it.  And that is very empowering, especially in times like this.  But knowing something is only half the battle.  The trick is in making history different based on what we’ve learned.  And that is what our next step will be.

The Great Option of Homeschooling: To see just how bad public schools are, walk the halls of Lakota

Saving Kids by Homeschooling Them

Just to let you know how bad it is, the pictures included here were taken in one of the 22 schools within my school district of Lakota.  As you’ll see, it’s all about Critical Race Theory, all the time with them.  So much so I would consider them a danger to any child.  I would never in a million years send any kid of mine to a public school these days.  If you want to know what’s wrong with public schools, take a walk through the halls of Lakota in Cincinnati, Ohio, and you’ll get a good idea.  I never thought they were any good, but now, they are just horrendous.  Ironically, just as revealing as those pictures were, I had the chance to meet up with some old friends at the Annie Oakley Wild West Show I’ve been involved in for over a few decades.  They have a swarm of kids I’ve watched grow up, and now they are all bloomed.  I only see them once a year, so it has been fascinating watching them grow, and I can only say that they are such intelligent and fully developed kids.  They are super nice kids, very gifted, socially extremely confident.  They don’t have that beat-down look on their faces that most children have these days, 22 and under.  Taking those kids out of the cesspool of public education has been great for them. The results show after looking at those pictures from the walls of Lakota schools, which is reflective of all public schools all over the country, it’s easy to see why parents are upset.  They have a right to be. But at least there is a silver lining I’ve known about but haven’t had much exposure to.  Like the kids I mentioned who have homeschooled their entire lives, more and more parents are taking advantage of that option.  My kids are a few of them, and they were over this week showing me the learning material they have for starting this school year, and I have to say, I was very impressed. 

This is what is in the Halls of Lakota Schools

I remember what it was like; as I told in the story above, public schools have been garbage for decades.  They weren’t very good when I was in school.  They were terrible when my kids were going to school, so much so that we homeschooled for one of their years, and in their last two years, they finished their courses online and graduated at home.  Both of my children graduated early and spent time in Europe learning about the world while their classmates from Lakota were still trying to get a date for the prom.  And as for today, I would say, if you love your children at all, do not send them to the garbage heap that is public school for the life of you.  It’s no accident at Lakota and many other schools that they have started All Day Kindergarten because that is all that government schools are to parents, a free babysitting service ran by radical progressive activists paid for by the taxpayers.  That is why they are also pushing pre-school options because parents have kids, but they need to get back to work.  So they drop their kids off at these government schools to raise because they need the free babysitting, then wonder 12 years later why their kids are all screwed up as young adults.  Well, it doesn’t have to be that way, and my kids love their kids, so they’ve been looking for options, and what they brought me to show me was some of the most wonderful homeschooling material I’ve ever seen.  There was a time when my wife and I homeschooled our kids because the public school at the time, Mason, wanted to teach sex education in the 4th grade by putting a condom on a cucumber.  Well, these were my kids; they were little and were never going to have an opportunity to need to learn to put a condom on a penis.  My kids were going to be little and learning as much as they could as long as I could fight off the evils of the world to let their childhoods be as good as possible.  The school freaked out when my wife and I wouldn’t sign the permission slip, and a fight ensued that got quite bad.  It resulted in us pulling our kids from school and homeschooling for a year, which at that time was one of the hardest things we had ever done.

CRT at Lakota Schools

It wasn’t the education that was hard; it was the social stigma.  I never cared, but it mattered to my wife.  We were in our 30s at the time, and we did not have the support of our parents.  For our parents and society in general, public school was about dances, school jackets, and class rings.  They were the kind of people who went to their class reunions at five and 10-year intervals.  The friends they made in public school lasted a lifetime.  It was like the movie Grease, the school was about friends and memories, and they hated that we were robbing our children of those great things.

They Have Groups for Everything, But American Appreciation at Lakota

Only, school had changed since their days, and they had no idea what was going on.  When the Department of Education was put in place by teacher union lobbying in 1979, I was in the 2nd or 3rd grade at the time.  I was able to watch firsthand how that old view of public education changed into a radical political cesspool controlled by labor unions and their leftist desires.  I hated school more and more each year I was there; it was stifling to creativity and involved too much group think.   By the time my kids went to school, it was worse.  Not in the first few years, but by the time they were trying to push off sex education to 4th graders, it had gotten out of control.  Most of the kids were going home to empty houses from the school’s logic, and the kids were having sex until the parents got home from their jobs.  But that wasn’t fair to the kids who went home to a loving parent or two and had good lives at home.  Those kids didn’t need to be destroyed by such education methods of social rendering at the expense of innocence.  So the only real option was to homeschool them, but back then, when my kids were of that age, there wasn’t great social support. 

The Future is Women, so think of all the Young White Boys, what are they Supposed to do?

Now that has changed, my kids will teach all their kids at home, and all their Instagram friends think it’s great.  Of course, they have parental support from us, but more than that, most of their friends are saying now that they wish they could afford to teach their kids at home instead of sending them to these terrible public schools.  The branding of public schools has gone south over the years.  Most adults who have kids wish they made enough money to either send their kids to private schools or take advantage of the tremendous network of homeschool resources available now.  They feel the same way the rest of us think about public schools, except they don’t have the option of staying home because they have jobs to teach their kids at home.  My kids have built their life around the matter, and I’m proud of them, even more so now that I’ve seen what kind of resources my grandchildren will have to work with. I’ve seen the results of homeschooled children.  Every kid in America should have such a chance at a good education.  But they just aren’t going to get it at these misrun government schools as they are today.  If you love your kid, you will not send them to any of them.  Because if there is anything genuinely equal in this world, it’s that public schools are all equally bad.  If the government runs them, they are terrible for your kid, and you should do everything you can to avoid those places at all costs.

Don’t Listen to What Biden Says: Its what he does which reveals his communist nature

Its what People Do which tells the Truth about Them

You have to understand; we are living in the future; it’s a media-driven culture full of video images and photos.  We have learned to judge the value of something based purely on the way it looks and sounds as positioned to us through imagery.  Back in other times not that long ago, we judged evidence based on what we read and could gather through the vetting process of public opinion, from mouth to mouth.  So we are dealing these days with professional manipulators of what an image can communicate, and without question, that is a factor in the mass corruption we see these days.  Of course, politicians would attempt to challenge people’s intelligence and enrich themselves because they could hide their true intentions and complete character behind their ability to present good imagery to the public.  And getting some success with this ability, now they have gone all out with open crimes that Butch Cassidey would have blushed at.  Not all criminals are black-hatted curling mustache monstrosities.  Sometimes they are that older man like Joe Biden, who has sold America to communist China and has done it by acting like your prolonged lost grandpa stuttering through sentences, limping around on stage to appear feeble.  But he tells a few jokes, tries to make everyone lower their guard by stumbling around with old-fashioned stories of his youth, and before you know it, you find yourself trusting the guy.  Just as China and other hostile agents worldwide have learned, the way to dupe Americans and others worldwide is to control what they see and hear so that they’ll ignore what the bad guys are doing.

That’s why I say all the time, ignore what people tell you. Don’t get caught looking at the makeup, the nice clothes, the pleasant smiles.  Pay attention to what people do.  Especially pay attention to what they do when they think people aren’t looking.  Now people too lazy to take that extra step are often defensive about the need for doing this. They’ll say things like, “show me the evidence,” as if to justify why they won’t do the extra work in analyzing behavior patterns to make more informed decisions.  The essence of these people is that they are sloppy and essentially lazy.  They want people to tell them what to think because they don’t like thinking for themselves.  Those are essentially the type of people who make up liberalism.  They want to trust the system, the process, and the signs of health that they can visually see because they don’t want to think what all those elements might mean.   The way, however, to figure out the truth of a matter is to watch what people do.  Watch how they behave as a totality of their existence.  Before there was so much eye candy in modern times, before television, before movies and full-color ads, people had no other way to measure behavior except by what happened as a result.  But these days, what image is projected is usually what people accept as reality, even if the image’s projection has no relationship to achievement in the real world at all. 

Yet, we can say with complete confidence that Joe Biden’s administration is a communist one; it is fully aligned with the Chinese government and is intended to hand them the goal they have been seeking for a long time, which is to take over the United States entirely.  To run it, by the middle of the next decade.  The Chinese are happy to wait; they have been waiting since the 1950s, so another decade is no problem.  They seek to undo us from within as a culture; they often write many of the policies that we develop domestically through financial influence and their “honey pot” network.  They are just waiting for everything to fall in the United States, exactly why they wanted Joe Biden in the White House.  They wanted a crotchety old many Americans trusted to sell the story of communist takeover to the public so the Chinese could swoop in and collect their assets at the end of a few terms and become the world power they always wanted to.  But to get there, they had to sabotage the big dog of America not through competition, which they can’t compete within a capitalist fashion, but through sabotage.  Now, of course, nobody will ever admit that this is what they are up to.  Nobody is even willing to accept on any side, even Republicans, the level of cheating that occurred in the 2020 election by China.  Because to see it, we’d have to declare war with the Chinese formally, and many enjoy too much money pouring into their lives from the communist country.  And the pillow talk, even though many of the honey pots from China are sleeping with multiple people simultaneously, such as in Eric Swalwell’s case, prevents complex emotions from rising to the surface.  Yet the Biden administration has shown where its allegiance is on communism with a few occasions.

Cybercrime has been a big problem for a while, and it is how communist China learns from the world.  They don’t do things themselves; they steal information through cybercrime.  And China has been caught doing it by the pro-Biden intelligence agencies of America.  Yet Joe Biden has attempted to explain away the Chinese government as free of guilt without any proof whatsoever that China’s government is not behind it all.  Biden tried to paint the situation as if it were rogue elements in China who were conducting the massive amounts of cybercrime that are currently going on. Biden’s lack of commitment to the issue tells you everything you need to know.  What Biden does shows what is going on with this government; it is aligned with communist China.  Now you might be saying, dear reader, that all that is a coincidence, or simply, a “misunderstanding.” Okay, well, then let’s look at the freedom movement in Cuba, just a few miles to the south of Florida, where people there are attempting to rise against the communist government and overthrow the Castro regime’s tyranny.   Again, in the same week, Biden came out in support of the Cuban government, not the people trying to throw off communism, but those who advocate for it.  That tells you everything you need to know.

When it is asked, which it is often, who controls the Biden administration, the puppet strings first run through China.  They are ultimately the way that Biden was elected in America.  The evidence is pouring forth by the droves.  Now, most people aren’t ready to deal with any of that.  They don’t want to believe it because it means they will have to do something about it, and they are just too lazy to have that engagement.  But we know by what people do, whether it’s the Chinese government, our government, or the Biden administration under great scrutiny, what they are really up to, what they believe, and what they intend for us based on their actual behavior. It’s not what they say.  It’s not their denials.  It’s what they physically do which declares their character and the truth of their guilt.  And it is that which we must use to judge the situation for the betterment of existence.

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.

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.

The Big Truth: Uncovering the Democrats Big Lie one voter at a time

Notice How Biden didn’t Want to Talk About Trump’s 4th of July Speech

This is becoming fun, watching the Democrats struggle so intensely to ignore the increasing skepticism of the 2020 election by ignoring almost wholly the Trump rally in Sarasota, Florida.  People stood all day in heavy rain to wait for President Trump to essentially give the same speech he always does, with a few minor changes that ended up being whoppers.  At one point in the address, Trump baited Biden well on the eve of the 4th of July, knowing that Biden would be talking from the White House on the actual holiday.  Trump pointed out Biden’s math problem in proving that he is the legitimate winner of the 2020 election.  Trump already has the inside knowledge of what the Arizona audit is showing and the increasing number of states following their audit example.  The cheaters of the election have been caught, as I said from the beginning that they would.  I have also personally verified the country’s nature; I had to, by traveling all over it so far in 2021.  I went to states as far out as Idaho and New Mexico, and lots of places from Cincinnati to there, and let me tell you what I didn’t find—any support for Joe Biden.  But I did see lots of support for Donald Trump.  Now for Biden to win 80 million votes, he would have had to cut into those red states.  Instead, all he has are false votes on paper to show his victory.  But the vote counters can’t attach real people to those votes because they don’t exist.  And the more Trump talks about it, as he did during the 4th of July, the harder it gets for Democrats to pretend like Joe Biden is the president.  Not to mention the media that is in on it now. 

Even better than that, Republicans feel more comfortable talking about the election fraud than in early January where insurgent Republicans wanted things to go back to how they were before 2016.  Over that same period, CNN’s Jim Acosta showed where the cracks were forming when he tried to press Congressman Madison Cawthorn over the election fraud issue.  Acosta representing the media position, stated that the judicial system had tossed out any connection to the possibility of election fraud.  Cawthorn said the right thing, that the judicial system let us down, which it did.  What the cheaters intended from the beginning was to run out the clock by hogging the ball until the buzzer rang in January and Biden was sworn in as the next president.  At that point, Trump had to leave the White House, and Democrats had successfully stolen the election.  Just as Acosta did, the media pressed that there was no evidence of voter fraud, which of course, there is.  But the point and plan from the beginning were to process the Biden cheat faster than the case of fraud could be built in the courts.  Courts purposely don’t move very fast; a case like this election fraud case could take years, even decades, to prosecute.  The cheaters, in this case, are many thousands of people who were in on the action, and tens of thousands of others who wanted to believe it for their climbs to power, crawled out on that limb expecting it not to break.  People would accept the results and not riot on the Capitol as they did, which scared the crap out of those same cheaters because it showed them how vulnerable they are to an angry America. That’s why the Capitol is still closed to the public.  They are scared of the public.

Now you might ask why those influential House members and the Senate would be so scared even though they have all the power.  Well, because they know what I’m telling you now, but they didn’t respect you enough to figure it out.  The people who protested on January 6th were a small portion of the population who knew what was going on and displayed literal intolerance.  When Mike Pence showed little stomach for the fight that had to happen, people were upset about it.  And they haven’t let go.  Traveling all over the United States, I see it.  People are not happy with Biden, they feel cheated, and they are in the extreme majority.  The little Beltway types do not have enough support across the country to control the 80 plus million who are increasingly figuring out that their vote was robbed and the person they voted for was cheated out of an office they picked him for.  It’s not about Trump or Trump’s desire to win. It’s about having choice removed from voters and being given some piece of junk they didn’t want. 

Now the day after Trump’s speech, you can see how guilty the Biden people are because of what they didn’t talk about.  Usually, after Trump gives an address, the media will showcase little bits of it to play the presidents off each other, which is suitable for their network coverage.  Instead, all the guilty parties did everything they could to not talk about Trump’s speech.  Now, if you thought you had won the presidency with 80 million people, you’d say it. You’d push back against what Trump is saying.  Instead, they are again hoping to run out the clock.  They are hoping that people will move on to some other topic, such as race relations.  Nobody dared talk about the coverage of that speech and what the lack of it meant to their ratings.  Well, OANN covered the address, as did Newsmax, and their ratings show it.  They beat everyone during that time slot.  But the deal between the networks is hurting them, and they can’t go back now; they are too far down the rabbit hole on this thing to reveal their part in it now.  Like a bunch of crooks who have been caught but are in separate holding cells while the interrogation continues, they are all hoping to keep their story straight.  That story is, there was no election fraud, there is no proof of it, and that Biden won.  But with each month, people are questioning the election fraud more and more.  Now the evidence is stacking up and quick.  The Jim Acosta position is turning Michael Avenatti fast, faster than anybody anticipated.  Most of them delusional themselves, believing that Americans would have moved on to the next shiny object by now.  But they haven’t, so what are they going to do, ignore the world as it burns around them?

Jim Acosta and those like him are looking to openly destroy the premise of America and turn it into a progressive subservient of the United Nations, calling what happened over the election, The Big Lie. It’s the same tactic used in calling Republicans racist when that political party freed the slaves while it was Democrats who fought to keep slavery intact.  And in this election case, it was Democrats who participated in and created The Big Lie.  Only it doesn’t mean what you think it does, because they are the creators of the term and have sold it as such.  Racism, January 6th, Covid being created in a Wuhan lab with full knowledge of China, are all covers for the vile act of election fraud they committed, the biggest crime ever attempted on earth.  It involved not just the thousands of people who knew about it, but it involved foreign countries as well.  It was an invasion from the outside and the inside, and they have been caught.  And you can see how guilty they are by what they don’t talk about, even though Trump is forcing them to through his influence leadership.  I keep telling you guys, “ghosting it” is one of the most powerful strategic tools humankind has ever unleashed, and Trump is doing it.  And The Big Lie is turning into The Big Truth faster than people like the Biden administration can run for the hills to avoid what happens next.

The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business

Trump is “Ghosting it,”: Defeating the enemy in the way they can’t defend

Ghosting It is the way to Beat the Enemy

It’s something I’ve been aware of as a management method for quite a long time, several decades now.  The publishers picked up on it in my new book, and through the editorial process, the term I use to recognize this method called “Ghosting It” has taken center stage as the cover design had just come my way for approval. “Be a ghost, be a legend, be successful” is what it says on the cover of my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, and what we are seeing from President Trump is a perfect example of it happening in life in front of our faces.  When I first started fleshing out the concept that isn’t new, it was a new way of looking at the importance and subtleties of leadership; it was well before Donald Trump’s presidency.  As I said in the video above, another great example of “ghosting it” is Tom Brady, the NFL quarterback.  There are others, but Trump and Brady are both excellent and successful in life in ways that defy traditional leadership recognition.  I had used the method for years myself and started putting the book together well before Trump even announced he was running for an elected position back in 2015.  But once he was president, I shelved the idea because I felt people saw it happening in live time, the kind of leadership that truly made the world go around.  Traditionally, going well back into the stuffiness of Europe, it has been generally accepted that simple titles were all that was needed for leadership; once a title was obtained that people would follow them based on that social designation.  I have always said that the concept of leadership was wrong.  That leadership was much more obscure and powerful if only people understood it, so my term “ghosting it” evolved along those lines.  Once Trump had been successful as president, I saw that people needed to understand it as the various harassments started coming to be known a few years into the presidency.  So I resurrected the book idea and found a new publisher for it after the Parler debacle at Amazon. Now it’s about to be released, just in time to make a great point about what comes next in the freedom movement. 

We are making the rules up for this new kind of media as we go, so I don’t know if I am supposed to call the videos I do for this blog every day “podcasts,” vlogs, broadcasts, or what.  But early in the process, when it was apparent that Trump would not easily win the White House for a second term, people would need help walking through things.  I was never worried about what I was seeing because of my understanding of “ghosting it.” I always figured Trump could lead from his home in Florida and that the actual White House was irrelevant.  We had just witnessed some of the greatest crimes in history.  I reminded people from day one of starting my new Rumble account to host the videos that this process of sorting all the crimes out and pursuing justice over them would take a long time, at least a few years, perhaps an entire election cycle.  We were, after all, at war and have been for many years prior.  This was a kind of civil war where the enemy did not want to face anybody with guns in the street or fists to faces. Instead, they intended to kill our side with vague definitions of patriotism that would deny us a rallying cry of perceptual victory.  We were winning with Trump, with an excellent economy, with a renewed patriotic spirit, so the enemy, in this case, sought to deny us the definitions of victory so we would have no way of measuring how good things were.  Their complete strategy orchestrated from the shadows of government was to obscure the definitions of success so that we would not be unified behind the insurrection they were hosting against American ideas at the most fundamental level.  And for the enemy, they thought that by removing the title of president from Trump, that we would only be able to wallow in defeat, and that we would give up on this idea of freedom in our country and surrender ourselves to the mask police of global intent.

However, the curveball that America’s enemies can’t hit is the leadership ability of “ghosting it,” which Trump, after a lifetime of branding himself into a legend, was able to do.  And this past week leading up to the 4th of July for 2021, he has been doing it wonderfully, leading from the “ghost” position, which my new book explains in detail using metaphors of the Old West as the foundation for understanding it.  In many ways, Trump is much more powerful out of the White House than in it, leaving all the criminals involved in releasing the Covid virus and the election fraud that followed in its wake very vulnerable.  The pressure of Trump’s speeches on the 4th of July and his border visit during the same period has put a kind of pressure on the Biden administration they are not prepared for in any way.  And they are crumbling before our eyes.  When Trump told a group of visitors who had stood in the rain all day in Sarasota, Florida, that there was no mathematical way Biden obtained 80 million votes, notice how you did not see the Biden administration come to its defense?  Because they can’t, they know how they won that election; they had the help of many millions of people who made it happen, illegally, of course.  But they can’t dispute Trump’s claims.  All they can do is hope that people don’t notice or listen.  This is the essence of “ghosting it,” when they think they have killed you as a leadership rival, you take your legendary status, your hard-won reputation, and apply it like a ghost and terrorize those confined to the limits of the rules of life.  Live people have to live within walls and stairs to move around a house, for instance.  But a ghost can be everywhere, all the time, all hours of the day and night.  And they cannot be killed.  They can exist here, there, and way across the other side of the world as ghosts, which is precisely what Trump is doing to the forces that attempted to run him out of Washington D.C. as our representative by shoving him out of the White House and taking his nameplate off the Oval Office door. 

This criminal conduct would have just gone on longer if not for what happened in this last election, even with the inflation. The other damages to our economy, to get back to a foundation of law and order, we had to go through this process. We had to have a person in a leadership position like Trump who could fight this fight on a level the other side can’t understand or deal with legitimately.  The media culture that props up people like Biden has to be destroyed by methods they can’t understand, by rules they cannot live by because they are phony, most everything they embark on is.  They cannot win if “ghosting it” is applied to the situation because they live their lives to make it impossible for them to utilize.  I do explain all that in my book.  It took a while to work out the concepts to understand the obscurities of “ghosting it.” Still, I recognized early on that if more people understood the idea, even going back to 2012, we could advance the freedom movement, which has always needed a fresh approach. To return control of our government to the people who are supposed to be controlling it.  The same skills are required in sports and business, even in family management.  But for the people who want to maintain a constitutional republic in America, “Ghosting It” is the way to go.  If you don’t care about the titles of leadership but the results, then you can be like a ghost and can harass the enemies of America to the point where they will be terrified just at the mention of your name.  Trump can be president without the White House, and that is what he’s been doing lately, which will give us results that have never yet been tried in any country. But it’s happening now and to a significant effect.

The Murder of Wild Bill: Ghosts are still in Deadwood that prove the intent of election fraud

The Murder of Wild BIll

It was perplexing to my family that I wanted so diligently to go to Deadwood, South Dakota, for really one reason, and one reason only.  I wanted to go to the spot of the Number 10 Saloon, the original one, and see where Wild Bill Hickok was gunned down by Jack McCall over what many thought was a sour poker game.  But many also thought that the business community of Deadwood paid McCall to kill off Wild Bill before he could bring his excellent reputation as a sheriff to the town to render justice.  Many in Deadwood wanted to keep it an outlaw town of villainy and sorrow because that’s where the profit was for them.  That was the rationale for why they couldn’t get a prosecution of McCall in the first trial because the town of Deadwood wanted to kill off Wild Bill before an official sheriff came to be.  Eventually, law and order would come to Deadwood in the form of Seth Bullock. Still, the criminal intent of the town was made clear early, and it’s a theme that is repeated many times over in the future years of America, leading right up to the election the first time of Donald J. Trump as president.  I like westerns because these kinds of things are easier to see without the complicated tapestries of modern society, so when looking for proof of malice in human hearts, I was eager to get to Deadwood to see the spot for myself. 

The Original Number 10 Saloon in Deadwood

My daughter and I clambered down in the basement of the modern saloon called The Wild Bill Bar.  The bathrooms are down there, so it was easy for us to see the original street level of Deadwood that was about 6 feet lower than the current street of the modern town.  That was where the actual Number 10 Saloon had resided, and we could get a sense down there of how it was back then, where Wild Bill had been sitting and what views Jack McCall had as he approached the back of the famous gunfighter and shot him point-blank in the head.  For me, from there, I wanted to go outside and look up and down the street to see where spectators would have been relative to the murder and listen for the gunshots and the mayhem that followed.  Deadwood back then, as it is today, is far away from the civilized world. It’s a long way from Washington D.C. or New York, so the arm of the law was feeble.  It reveals even today the true nature of most human beings if left to their own devices, which I find very valuable.  You may not like what you see, but it’s honest.  And being that this kind of topic is something I spend a lot of time thinking about, I considered it essential to see this last living place of Wild Bill, one of the greatest gunfighters that ever lived. 

On The Hunt in Deadwood

I took two big trips this year all over the west to see locations I had been writing about in my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business.  The first trip was to finish the book in Roswell, New Mexico, where John Chism had lived.  The second trip was a bigger one to celebrate the completion of all the gally proofs before heading to pre-production.  Seeing direct evidence of the murder of Wild Bill was important to me because it showed a repeat in history for the election fraud that had just taken place against President Trump.  It led to what extent and why people kill or destroy other people.  We saw it happening right in front of our faces on the nightly news.  But on the wild frontier of Deadwood, South Dakota, it had occurred in the Number 10 Saloon.  It was a crime scene preserved not just there but in the town itself.  It wasn’t Jack McCall who killed Wild Bill.  Sure, he pulled the trigger.  But it was the town itself that killed him, and that town was still pleading “not guilty.” Even as its streets flooded with the blood of guilt that still stained everything, including the parking garage in the town center, it was the dumbest parking garage in the history of parking garages.  It was too small, too expensive, and their validation system seems to be designed by a 5-year-old.

Even saying all that, I loved Deadwood.  I loved it for all its wildness, even though my taste is more for towns like Jackson, Wyoming, as destination places to visit. I’m glad places like that still exist because there is a lot to learn from it.  Today it’s a biker town, wild and wooly and proud of it.  We ended up eating as a family at Mustang Sally’s, and to my back were various gambling machines that were everywhere in Deadwood.  There were more gambling devices there than anyplace I’ve seen except for Vegas.  But per square inch of floor space, Deadwood has everyone beat. It’s a gambling town.  That tends to produce many down and out people in life, but as I say in my Gunfighter’s Guidebook, gambling gives people hope that they might elevate their station in life with sudden wealth.  It may be a kind of flytrap that ends up making them poorer, but the hope of it is what matters.  Just like the boomtown Deadwood used to be for gold mining, the idea of quick, new money to elevate people’s station in life beyond the aristocratic norms was the driver of the entire future economy.  And that’s not a bad thing.  As I drove across South Dakota and Iowa for many thousands of miles, I had been thinking about election fraud and the Covid scam by globalist-minded insurgents who were using fear and crises to control all of humankind toward lawlessness.  It reminded me of the kind of people who paid Jack McCall to kill the great gunfighter Wild Bill, the motives and the political climate that would follow in its wake.  Eventually, justice was served, and that will be the case in the United States as well.  What I wanted to see was the spot where Wild Bill was shot and compare it to what Deadwood eventually became in a modern sense.  It wasn’t a sad song for me to see the actual places, but it was revealing.  I felt my visit to Deadwood was a visit to a ghost of many maniacal creatures, and they are still hovering over the events there.  There is a kind of cold killer in the air at Deadwood that people are desperate to gamble their way away from.  But with every pull of a slot machine, they only make those ghosts that much more menacing by the hour.  Deadwood has always struggled to climb out from under its lawlessness established during its founding.  It’s good to see that even where the law is abandoned or even hated, that there is still a kind of sense of justice everywhere.  Whether it is the young lady sitting half outside of her shop covered in body piercings and tattoos smoking a cigarette looking for a new male roommate that might whisk her away on the back of a motorcycle for fifteen minutes of fame, or the overweight guy in Mustang Salley’s who just spent his entire paycheck for a chance to strike it rich, buy a Class A rig and spend the rest of his life roaming the earth off the winnings, what the town of Deadwood has always wanted, just as all Americans want, is a chance to get somewhere in life without the rules of an aristocratic society guiding them.  They want freedom, and if murder is the means to get there, they’ll undoubtedly do it
