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.

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.

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.

Brad Lovell is a Great Example of What’s Wrong in Public Education: Taking a job in Sycamore keeps him advocating progressive tyrannies like Critical Race Theory

Why School Boards Never Listen

Brad Lovell of the Lakota school board in Northern Cincinnati is an excellent example of what’s wrong with public education.  Likely wherever you are reading this, you have your version of a Brad Lovell type.  You wonder why the school board never listens, and when they do, they give you appeasement answers, never really dealing with the actual problem.  When for instance, there are radical activists who push transexual bathrooms in a public education setting, and the school board never shows an inclination to deal with it or to go along with it and expect the community to live with their decision as it falls on deaf ears, you can know that for people like Brad, he’s using the school board to protect his nest eggs. Brad’s wife, for example, is a teacher at Lakota.  From his position on the board, he can protect her job and benefits in many indirect ways as a member of the school board, while building up his portfolio for a job like he just landed with Sycamore schools, just across town from Lakota as a Director of Business Operations.  This is ironic because he recently made it clear on the board that he wanted to blow all the reserve money at Lakota and to spend it into oblivion on completely useless renovations so that he could push another tax increase.  The school board punted this year on it, likely due to the election this fall, but Brad loves to spend money and has a big progressive mindset regarding public education, which other schools love, like Sycamore.  But Sycamore wouldn’t have known Brad from a hole in the ground had he not been a school board member in good standing with the teacher’s union at Lakota, which has provided him with a great networking opportunity to exploit.

You could go to virtually any school board in the United States and see the same behavior from the school board.  School boards were designed to be volunteer services by the community to manage their local school systems. Still, with the big international trade unions running the majority of the employees, community volunteers are often not equipped to deal with the political influences of these radical unions.  The union tactics are usually enough to keep good people from running.  That usually means what you get is someone like Brad Lovell, who wants a job in education and will do anything and endure everything to have it.  If the political pressures mean he needs to be a big-time progressive, then he’ll do it.  People like these types often tell themselves they are doing all this for their children, but the truth is, they love the public adulation and the feeling of community that all liberals enjoy.  That sense of community that liberal people crave like a blanket at night to hide under from the monsters they think is in their closet.  They are big spenders of other people’s money, and when people complain, they do nothing about the complaints.  Their real goal is to get the next big education job and show the system itself that they can be trusted to keep all the secrets in such places as public schools.

I could name off many cases over the years where a teacher or administrator would send naked pictures of themselves to students they fell in love with.  It happens more than you’d like to believe.  It’s always a frustrating mystery why school boards sit on their hands and do nothing about it.  Well, people like Brad don’t want to screw up their next big gig like going to Sycamore for a job as a “business director.” The goal of most school board candidates is to make friends and keep the image of the school on the high side.  Not to protect the students from predatory teachers or the eventualities of financial collapse because the teachers can’t live within a budget and always look to the school board to rubber-stamp everything.  Brad is on the record to be a tax increase supporter and active one.  So that makes him a member of the club in the school system and an attractive prospect at Sycamore.  They protect their own once it’s been established who they are.  Brad has managed to market himself as one of “them” since his election to the board in 2017. 

When a teacher or administrator gets in trouble with a student over sex, or other bad behavior, it is nearly impossible to fire them.   Instead, they reshuffle the deck in public education and move them to a different district.  After all, there’s not much difference between Sycamore, Lakota, Fairfield, or Cincinnati Public.  Young parents are not quite wise to the world’s ways think there are differences, which is why they buy homes in Lakota instead of downtown Cincinnati. Still, all government schools are rackets built only to support progressive causes, like Critical Race Theory and very high incomes for those who play along, like Brad Lovell, for a good paycheck and a chance to be someone in life.  What business is there in Sycamore for an Operations Director?  The product is our children.  Schools don’t sell anything; they just take, take, take from those who produce things in the world.  What is meant by a Director of Business Development is someone who can set the image of the school into something that can get the subsequent tax increase passed.  And Brad needed to take a job like that before he ruined himself by trying to push Lakota through a levy increase.  A few failures at the voting booth often destroy the brands of the administrators guilty of supporting tax increases for quite a long time. 

The critical thing to know is that this is the nature of the game for school boards, so when you wonder why they never get involved in problems like transexual bathrooms or critical race theory, and your cries fall on deaf ears, now you know why.  The school board people themselves don’t take money for the jobs. Still, they use the positions to build them up for other things later, like a nice, high-paying administrative job that is just a token position to justify another tax increase on property owners.  That is the aim of the teacher unions, which are very committed to abolishing private property as a communist goal from the beginning.  Most teachers in these public-school unions aren’t sitting around reading Karl Marx.  But where else can they make six figures with their worthless skills?  And where else could someone like Brad Lovell be considered an “administrator” of any worth?  Government jobs are done for the dreary average who surrender thought to the system. Those employees aren’t asking questions about ideology so long as they are getting paid within the system.  And that’s why Brad will never listen to concerned parents as a Lakota school board member.  Because across town during the day, he is one of the paid stooges who is making big money off the public education system.  And he won’t do anything to jeopardize that job, which is why they picked him.  It doesn’t matter if a race war started in the school provoked by inaction by the board.  Brad and the board might answer an email with sympathies.  But they won’t change the behavior, ever, because they work and live off the system itself.  And they like the results a lot more than they like your kids. That’s why nothing ever happens and why school boards will continue to not listen to concerned parents and will continue to lay down and lick the feet of the corrupt teacher unions without ever a challenge.

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.

Defending J.D. Vance: Its about shelf life and winning over the other side

Defending J.D. Vance

I’ve had a few opportunities to meet J.D. Vance recently, both of which fell short on aligning schedules.  I have been traveling a lot this year, and coming out of the Covid burdens, it has been a busy time.  Vance is running for the Rob Portman Senate seat that I talk about in the video above.  So are Josh Mandel and Jane Timken, along with several others.  All of the candidates seem like they have something good to bring to the seat as Portman exits.  As I also said in the video, I knew Rob Portman when he first started in politics.  He was a kind of Ross Perot Reform Party guy back then, and over time as the glaciers of D.C. politics have worn away at him, he has become a serious RINO, essentially no better than Mitt Romney.  This doesn’t surprise me, nor do the reports that J.D. Vance was a Never Trumper in 2016.  This past week the media looking to churn up controversy in what they consider to be the front runner in the race, J.D. fresh off his successful movie, the Hillbilly Elegy, and book by the same name. Vance has good funding from Peter Theil in the vicinity of $10 million, which is a good start for an Ohio senate race.  I think a lot of the bad media is a good sign for Vance and that a proper defense of him is warranted.  But again, as I mention in the video, the purpose of a primary is not to determine the best character who can run for that seat; it’s who has the best shelf life once they win it.  Which candidate can hold their life together long enough to withstand the rigors of elected life in a powerful seat?

I will meet with Jane Timken coming up soon, which I plan not to miss.  J.D. has had events practically in my backyard as he’s from Middletown, and if I get another chance, I’ll make room for it.  I know Josh Mandel pretty well from his Tea Party activism, and if I had to pick, it would be him right now.  I personally like him, but he doesn’t have much of a reputation as a winner.  He lost a challenge to the socialist Sharrod Brown, and he’s had family trouble.  To me, that’s a shelf-life problem.   I warned Rob Portman of the shelf-life issue when he was making his first run for congress and when he did win, I maintained some relationship with him for a few years after.  His shelf life was about seven years.  Some people like Rand Paul and his father have lasted a lot longer.  Some don’t last much beyond their freshman years intact with their Mr. Smith Goes to Washington intentions. It’s a cutthroat business that a lot of politicians don’t understand until they get there.  A primary election is an excellent way to give them a taste and let voters figure out what that political shelf life might look like.

I wasn’t very excited about J.D. Vance, I’ll admit, when I had those two invites to meet him over the last few months.  I am skeptical of anyone who works for any period with the very liberal film director Ron Howard.  Ron did a great job on the movie Hillbilly Elegy, and he couldn’t have done that good of a job without working closely and getting to know J.D. Vance.  The film and the book are essentially about the life story of Vance and how Middletown, Ohio fell from grace and produced problems for a displaced Appalachia family.  The Vance story is one I know well.  I could tell the same story for thousands of people I know in Hamilton and Middletown, Ohio, who came from Kentucky and West Virginia to get jobs at Fisher Body in Hamilton and Armco in Middletown.  Vance was a darling to liberals, which he played to his advantage while it lasted.  The movie was Academy Award level material, and the book was a New York Times Best Seller. As I’ve said many times, you don’t get those accolades unless you give progressivism a sacrifice on Kong’s Skull Island.   Much like the book The Deer Hunter did, capitalism was painted as the cause of Middletown’s failure, of the small town of Appalachia culture that failed the people of those communities.  But in reality, it’s tampering by government with the markets that ruined those jobs.  It was union activism that made the supply chain unreliable in many cases, and it is that behavior that causes economic downturns anywhere. 

But I saw more than that in Hillbilly Elegy, not just in J.D. Vance himself. He prevailed in the story despite the massive setbacks from his drug-addicted mom and the seemingly dysfunctional antics of his grandmother.  Again, I know lots and lots of these kinds of people, and I know the real story of their lives better than Hollywood, looking to make a statement about the failures of capitalism.  I saw a person in Vance who understood personal responsibility and overcoming barriers, which was a metaphor for his life and the town of Middletown as a whole.   And since 2016, and especially once he was done with the movie, I was not surprised to see a kind of Trumpian candidate that fits well in the American First platform of President Trump.  Vance gets the philosophy and knows how to hit the cable news stations and sell it.  The question everyone has is what kind of shelf life does J.D. Vance have, and does he genuinely believe what he’s saying now. 

Oh, I remember 2016 when Vance was posting on Twitter disparaging things about Trump.  I knew a lot of Republicans who were right along with him.  They were Never Trumpers, just like Glenn Beck was.  Glenn Beck and I shared a mutual friend in Doc Thompson, and there were always talks of doing work on The Blaze, which often put Doc in a tough spot.  I was so mad at Glenn Beck that I swore him off forever. I’m happy to see he has since found his mind now that it’s obvious how good the Trump presidency was.  But if I refused to deal with people who were Never Trumpers, who has since seen the light, I wouldn’t be able to talk to anybody.  There weren’t many of us who were pro-Trump in 2016 who were willing to admit it publicly.  I was a Trump supporter from the beginning and have watched many people change their minds, so it isn’t surprising that Vance has now seen the light.  To my mind, it’s all about building teams, of winning over people’s minds.  So I welcome Vance and people like him who have learned and evolved.  Welcome to the winning team!

Yet when the primary election is held, and whoever wins among these candidates for the Portman Senate seat, we must keep in mind shelf life.  We want a person who will be just as good ten years from now as they are during their freshman year.  We want someone who will be able to still talk about America First after they’ve had a line of lobbyists outside their office trying to buy them off with easy money and cheap wine that will be all too tempting to consume.  And for J.D. Vance’s enduring love for a self-destructive mother hell-bent on drug abuse, I think the young man knows something about overcoming adversity.  He might be the kind of person who can withstand the rigors and maintain a long shelf life in a powerful seat in public office. I’d be more than willing to give him an honest look.

Thomas Jefferson Was No Racist: And if not for America–and Republicans, there would still be slavery

Thomas Jefferson was not a racist, he worked to free the slaves and everyone of color

It was tough to watch over the 4th of July weekend the utterances of the many Marxists who have gathered people of color on a typical Kotter change state strategy to disparage Mt. Rushmore and the Founding Fathers. Knowing what I do about the country’s origin that anyone with just a little reading could discover, they’d be insulted too.  I just returned from Mt. Rushmore a few weeks ago, as of this writing, and I found it profoundly refreshing and intellectual.  There was a lot more to do at Mt. Rushmore than getting out of the car and look at some carvings on the big rock wall.  It was a temple of conceptual understanding into the nature of a functioning republic, something that had been attempted by Roman and Greek societies thousands of years ago.  It has only recently been resurrected from the impact of the Dark Ages, where mysticism and religion had placed over all humankind in the East and West a cloak a stupidity that held down civilization during the entire duration.  Only what the Founding Fathers proposed improved those lessons learned, not a return to the Greek or Roman, but a superior next step.  And if not for the people on that big stone mountain in South Dakota, there would still be slavery in the world.  America freed the slaves.  Republicans were the ones who did it, and Thomas Jefferson, even though he started as a slave owner for lots of social reasons specific at that time, worked behind the scenes to end slavery one way or another from the very beginning.

As I said in the video above, and in other videos, they had a couple of fabulous bookstores at Mt Rushmore.  At the very end of the viewing stand in the basement, one looks out over the statues through a big window.  I had read about 75% of the books in that bookstore before, but there was a treasure trove of about 25% that I hadn’t, and I bought them up.  One of the books was a little thing about Thomas Jefferson in his own words that I found very refreshing. I’ve read many books on Jefferson, all of which were written by the modern progressive biographers who have put work out that we see today on historical figures.  I find what they all have in common, even though I enjoy their work, perhaps none more than Edmund Morris, is a need to always put a progressive slant on their work to appease the market gatekeepers.  The big New York publishers all have the strategy of obtaining a New York Times review for the covers of their products.  To get that review, the author must pour some salt on the subject and show that they were not magnificent characters of history but rather people like you and me.  They are meant to be brought down to the ordinary level of the mud trollers who lean toward socialism out of laziness instead of the ambition of capitalism.  In that case, Jefferson has been attacked for his slave ownership and his alleged sexual relationship with Sally Hemings.  The purpose of all this side story stuff is to demean the great thoughts he evoked in creating a Declaration of Independence and the assistance in shaping a functioning Constitution for our new republic.  Not a “democracy,” a REPUBLIC. 

I left Mt. Rushmore with my new books in hand. I read them whenever I could throughout the rest of the trip, starting with this book on Jefferson because it was so relevant to the news of our day.  Our republic is under attack by race-baiters hiding their Marxism behind the guilt of slavery. They expect to use it to crush the morality of America into a change state of oppression and eventual control by the United Nations—which is already infiltrated by communists, socialists, and outright Marxists.  When these people talk of global unity, they are talking about socialism and communism being the method of government, and for that to happen, they must topple the United States from economic power. They work every day to do it.  Their best method of doing it is to convince the people of our republic to give up on capitalism which they think is quite possible due to the teacher union control of our education system.  The other way they plan to do it is to remove our good history of America’s foundation from our current reality.  That is why Mt. Rushmore is to them a bitter enemy which they hate.  It was also essential to build Mt. Rushmore in the first place, so people would never forget it. 

I also bought several other books across Kansas that talked in detail about the battle between the Jayhawkers and Bushwhackers well before the Civil War took place, the events of Bloody Kansas that led to the war itself.  America was never a racist nation to have those kinds of fights occurring, of which the Jayhawks, the Red Legs, and Union Army eventually won.   Slaves were freed because people used the Constitution that Jefferson and the other Founding Fathers created, and everyone fought it out.  It was England that brought the slaves to America.  Jefferson knew that if he tried to go too deep with the Declaration and eventual Constitutional Convention, the southern states would not stand together as the original 13 colonies. So, Jefferson took what he could and planned later to take another swipe at slavery with amendments, which is what happened.  It took another war to do it, but it happened, and, in that way, Jefferson revealed in his letters to immediates within his circle of friends.  Jefferson always planned for the formation of America to free people of all color, everywhere in the world.  The pressure of the victory of a Revolution would set off the movement all over the world.

That’s why it’s such an insult to listen to these modern ignoramuses utter such nonsense about America being anything of a racist country.  There is nowhere else in the world where so many people of different backgrounds have come together and lived so freely.  All we hear from the attackers is jealousy that the rest of the world hasn’t figured out how to do it yet.  Perhaps other places in the world would do better if only they learned from America.  It isn’t the American prerogative to give up what’s good so that everyone in the world can be equally wrong.  It is up to them to learn from us and the hard lessons won in the formation of America, which benefits all people.  And finally, what is even worse about the constant attacks of racism toward America is that the Democrats from the beginning were the Bushwackers, the slave owners, and the resistance to creating an independent republic.  They loved the aristocracy of European life and were not eager to take a break for independence.  Today, they are most anxious to retreat to Europe and adopt their socialism so they can be invited to the next Beltway party and live the life of the aristocracy.   The Founding Fathers started in the elite but decided to break away and create something new that resembled what worked with the old.  And for all they say, the Democrats in the modern era, none of it is good, educated, or relevant to history.  It is all malicious and meant to undo us all.

The Power of “Ghosting It”: Attacking Trump supporters isn’t enough

The Nature of Power

Nobody with a sane mind will dispute that what has been going on with Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg is an abuse of power in the extreme. The means of defending ourselves from the incursions is where the primary problem resides.  The frustration for the insurgents on the political left, which is global, is that the Trump Organization is attached to Donald Trump in a way it hasn’t seen a hit against its brand.  People still love and respect the Trump Organization even as there have been hits against its reputation by radicals looking to destroy the brand and destroying the business’s income.  That is how the left has operated for years, and it’s the only gas they have in the tank.  They have no actual means of destroying people or companies but hope to change the way people feel about them.  But, as we have seen through the election results of President Trump, even though on paper it showed that Joe Biden had won the election because the official titled participants certified the election, the truth about the vote comes out in math all across the country.  Despite all the attempts to tear down the Trump brand, well over 70 million people voted for Donald Trump in the election. They continue to support him even now at rallies and personal statements in every state across the country.  That is the actual vote by the people and is why the Trump Organization hasn’t been torn down yet.  The leftist’s attacks depend on people to stay in the lines created by society, manipulated by the legal system, and conform to the social controls of history to work.  But they haven’t been working, so the system itself is getting desperate and attacking anybody close to Trump that they can get a hold of to destroy any potential that Trump might resume his climb into the Executive Office as an elected representative.

This case illustrates perfectly why so many people in the world clammer for power or their perception of it.  One of the reasons my management method of “Ghosting It” is so effective is that it exists by living outside of the definitions for power that are generally instilled in our culture from its inception.  The reason people want power, whether it is political power, power within a community, a family, even within a friendship, is because they count on titles and official capacities to shape the world to their liking.  We all want to believe in our legal system. Still, unfortunately, such as the case with the Trump Organization, the New York prosecutors have gained power by title so that they could, in essence, control the definitions of law and order.  Since we have lost our connection to Natural Law in America, it thus allows for any tyrant to acquire power and use that power to destroy their enemies.  In this case of Trump, the left is terrified Trump will continue to break the rules and run for president yet again, which will destroy all their long-established plans.  Many of which have been in place for over a century.  The progressive effort in society has sought to remove Natural Law, family strength, and an economic grip on capitalism since the 19th century.  They intend to “progress” beyond those American concepts and seek to destroy any reference that might root the country to those ideas, and they are out for blood to continue that path.  That is why they have been working so hard to corrupt our legal system over so many decades.  They want desperately to have the kind of power they are showing in New York, to interpret the law, and to use it as a weapon to achieve their political desires.  We see the same behavior currently working against Rudy Giuliani where they have taken the law license of the former mayor just because he has been representing Donald Trump on legal matters. 

Over the last few weeks, I have been talking about two legal cases that came about before the progressive era took root, the Wild West period. In this case, Laurence Murphy gained control of the law in New Mexico to edge his rival, John Chism, out of the cattle baron business.  And we saw it again when the town of Deadwood, South Dakota, paid a killer to shoot Wild Bill before he could become sheriff and clean the city up from the crimes that were happening there that were making a lot of money for a lot of people.  I point those out because comparing things to western history, relatively simple politics shows the intent of vile evil people wonderfully.  Most people can agree on the facts when presented against the context of history long over the horizon of concern.  It is much harder for people to decide that the same type of thing was going on against Trump with James Comey, for instance, who had weaponized the FBI to control the kind of people who could be elected into representation roles in the American government. The message to us all has been that if we elect someone, the intelligence community from a Deep State perspective doesn’t approve of, those people will be destroyed by the law, which has been happening to Donald Trump since he announced he was running.  None of the enemies thought Trump would survive, and they are perplexed that he continues to survive.  So for them, the next best thing is to go after people close to Trump, hoping to erode him with a lack of support.  The other method they utilize, which they were caught on this past year, was election fraud.  If a candidate isn’t destroyed by some miracle in the media and people vote for them anyway, they will cheat.  This has likely been going on for many years.  It was just this past election where Trump was the one who had over 80 million votes, not Joe Biden, where they had to cheat so bad that they got caught this time. 

But to their minds, getting caught isn’t the worst thing in the world because they still have the power of the law to abuse to hide their crimes, which is why they have spent so much time and energy trying to acquire control over many years.  They always wanted to have James Comey types out there running the FBI for the political insurgency.  And they always wish to have liberal prosecutors to go after their political enemies, which is the whole intent of attacking the Trump Organization.  Thus, the way to beat these villains is to keep our law and order rooted in Natural Law.  And to stay committed to that fight, the public conflict must come from “ghosting it.” Trump has an instinct for it, as do most great leaders; they always have.  I have lately put a definition to it that allows others to utilize the tactic.  The way to beat progressives of radical leftism is to be bigger than them, have more maneuverability than they do, and take away the fear they expect to utilize by controlling the legal process.  Trump is “ghosting it,” so they will never catch him.  No matter who they attack, Trump has made himself untouchable by using his legendary status built over a lifetime and is unleashing it now in a way that no institutional controls can manage.  And that is the sunny side of the gruesome stuff we see now, especially coming out of New York legally.  The old tricks won’t work anymore, because as the Trump Organization proves, people still have all the power.  And maybe for the first time in history, controlling law and order from a government standpoint isn’t working.  Cheating the vote wasn’t enough because there are still many Americans and supporters worldwide who know better, and they aren’t giving up.

How to Fund Science: Get government out of the process so they can’t corrupt it

We need to get government out of funding science

If we have learned anything from the embarrassing Covid experience worldwide, it’s the validation that you do not want government funding to be the lifeline to the sciences.  Because when it is, such as what we saw with the NIH under Dr. Fauci, we have the all too tempting scenario where scientists will say anything to get that funding, including whatever governments want them to do.  For instance, to control elections, like made-up death totals, false models, bloviated cable news statements about the danger of a virus, the origin of a virus, and the long-term consequences of a virus to secure that funding.  What we have in modern times is not the best science that a rich country can buy; what we have is essentially the Institute of Science that they had in the famous book Atlas Shrugged.  A superficial branch of the government which attempts to quell people’s concerns as the government seeks to dominate every aspect of our lives.  And that is partly why it took me so long to write my latest book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business; it’s not because it takes a long time to write a book. Still, instead, it took a long time to look at our world and ask and answer the hard questions about existence, how money is made, and what kind of world we should build for this next century.  To do that, we have to surgically take out a cancer called progressivism that started to seep into America during the end of the 19th century and advanced to critical mass before the roaring 20s.  Most of us wouldn’t know any better because it happened slowly over time before many of us were even born.  So nobody even thinks to ask the question as we build our assumptions on failure after failure disguised as success.  Yet, I had the fortune recently to travel most of the United States, particularly in the Old West, and dig into our history and consider what a healthy government should look like instead of what we have.  Two fine examples of why the government should not be funding science emerged, but that private industry should, became evident. 

When Andrew Carnegie told the famous paleontologist Earl Douglas that he wanted something big to fill the great museum that the steel tycoon was building in Pittsburg, it set Douglas west into the Morrison Formation site to achieve that goal.  Carnegie didn’t know what Douglas would find.  He just knew what he needed and discovered the fabulous quarry that is still there to this day and continues to tell the world much of what we know about dinosaurs.  If it hadn’t been for Andrew Carnegie’s money, the giant apatosaurus that Douglas brought back to fill that museum would have never been found if the government had been funding that endeavor; likely, the giant sauropod would still be lost out there in that Utah mountaintop.  It took a prominent thinking capitalist like we used to make in America to give science a platform, which was the case for most of the early development of the science fields from archaeology, anthropology, paleontology, even astronomy.  Remember when the Obama administration told NASA that they should be studying Islamic contributions to science in the past instead of thinking of going to the stars yet again?  NASA listened and did what they were told because they wanted continued government funding.  See the problem? 

Teton National Park at Jenny Lake

Another example is the long story of making Teton National Park possible because essentially John D. Rockefeller started buying up land in Jackson Hole to make it possible for the government to set that area apart for a national park eventually.  He wanted that site to stay pristine and undeveloped.  In a video I show here from Instagram, you can see just how beautiful the Teton’s are.  The amenities at Jenny Lake, for instance, are incredible.  Now I could make a lot of arguments that Jackson Hole would have been better off developed and that I might want to enjoy Jenny Lake from a condo porch rather than a National Park.  But the concept of our National Parks is a good one.  It is good to see these places as they have always been, undeveloped.  It’s suitable for scientific study to discuss the socialism of these National Parks managed by the government another time.  After seeing the Tetons up close, it was good that Horace Albright was able to convince Rockefeller to spend a small fortune to buy the land then donate it to the government to create Teton National Park as a separate park from Yellowstone.  It was then signed into being by the great president Calvin Cooledge because it gave us what we see today.  But it took a personality like John D. Rockefeller to do it.  Without big-time capitalists operating with such large amounts of capital, places like the Teton National Park would have never happened. 

This idea that rich people are evil, or that they should “pay their fair share,” as determined by some socialist government viewpoint or the lazy and wretched in society who are naturally below-the-line thinkers, is the sure way to secure failure in all aspects of life.  In July of 2021, it is not an accident that three private industry tycoons of significant capital are going to space.  Richard Branson is about to personally fly to space himself to demonstrate the safety of his Virgin Galactic company.  Right after him, Jeff Bezos is flying into space with his Blue Origin rockets.  And Elon Musk is planning to get his Starship into an orbital test flight on a fast track to get back to the moon.  The government is not doing these things at NASA.  Government funding shapes what they do, which is why they have been stuck in a holding pattern of innovation for such a long time.  Private industry driven by great capital enterprises is how science is best developed.  It’s also how you get the best answers to complicated problems. We see the failures with Covid and how big pharma tied directly to FDA approvals have to play the government game if they want to exist, so they will do so whatever the government wants.  The key is to separate these problems, not to join them together as one entity.

That is the offerings in my book to identify these problems and separate them as they have before for a better approach for the future.  I could speak all day about the need for more understanding in science.  We are learning a great deal about our past that makes our assumptions here and now seem silly.  Which needs attention in just about all the sciences.  Truthfully, where we are today is embarrassing when comparing the rate of discovery to what it was when private funding drove most of the results, such as in the examples provided here.  But that is the case with all scientific fields.  Instead of intelligent scientists finding the freedom to discover, they are more like prostitutes catering to the desires of perverts in government. If the government had discovered flight and stuck its fat socialist ass in the development of it, we would never have gone from flying a kite to landing on the moon in just 70 years; we’d still be looking for the string for the kite in the garage of the Wright Brothers.  Government is slow, unmotivated, and essentially corrupt no matter where it is formed in the world.  They are needed to some extent for a free society to function well, but they must be as small as possible to stay out of the way of actual progress.  And we’ve done it well before.  Our task for the future is to look at those times where we did get it right and learn to remove the cancer of progressivism that is now threatening to kill us as patients.  That’s essentially the problem of our times.

Yes, the National Parks are Full: That’s what happens when government tampers with the economy

One unmistakable thing is that if you get a chance to travel this summer as I have been doing, the National Parks are packed.  They were filled way over capacity, everywhere.  Park Rangers are perplexed with the number of people they are suddenly dealing with and are complaining that there needs to be a reservation system at the National Parks to help them manage the capacity.  Now that is a very “government” thing to do; rather than embrace the surge in National Park interest, they are looking for ways to turn them into a BMV where visitors need to take a number before visiting to see their favorite tree.  In the video above, I talk about the several parks my family visited recently and the news report about Zion in Utah.  The story was from Idaho, which I saw on a television screen while staying there; the capacity problem was a direct byproduct of the government screw-up on Covid, where people were confined in their homes for a year. Now that they are free, they are doing all the things they wanted to do over that period, and the surge is the reaction, which government doesn’t know how to handle. 

I tend to have a soft spot for park rangers and anybody who works in the park systems.  We have an America the Beautiful pass, which I am very proud of.  This year, we have used it a lot, which essentially waives the 35 dollar fee that it takes to get into all the parks.  As this story about National Park capacity was breaking, we visited Yellowstone, one of the biggest ones.  We were in the Tetons.  We even went down into Dinosaur National Monument, and there are fees to get into all those parks covered by America The Beautiful passes.  I am typically in a pretty good mood when I’m visiting a National Park, so I overlook more than often the apparent liberalism of the government employees, including park rangers.  But I heard more bitching from them than I cared to.  Even over at the Yellowstone lodges at Old Faithful, workers complained about the number of people at the park because I was there in a midweek setting, and the employees expected an easy day.  Instead, at 9 AM, they had rushes of people that resembled 2 PM on a Saturday, and they were not happy about it. 

I deal with these kinds of things by getting up at 6 AM and getting everywhere before everyone else does.  The crowds didn’t bother me much until we were leaving.  The crowds can be managed if you think out of the box.  But if you think you’re going to wake up at noon and hit the parks, you can forget it, which is why Zion has already implemented an appointment system.  They had an appointment system at Dinosaur National Monument as well, which irritated me.  We were so early in the morning that it didn’t matter, but in the middle of Utah, they were seeing surges that the park rangers were having a hard time dealing with.  It was both fun to watch and grossly sick because they were essentially upset that they had to work, which they aren’t used to.  Other parks are feeling the pressure.  Thankfully when we were there, Yellowstone hadn’t yet done such a thing as a reservation system.  It defies the purpose of spontaneous adventure when you must check in with a park ranger to see a geyser.  But these are new problems caused by the government that government is not prepared to deal with.

What I find interesting is the human reaction to the problem.  The Covid lockdowns were pretty scary stuff.  The idea that a government that didn’t want to control the virus that came from China could destroy the economy, lock people in their homes and expect some tame result at the end of it is unfathomably ignorant.  There were solutions that were ignored, such as hydroxychloroquine and zinc.  Covid-19 was a self-imposed stupidity because there were ways to solve the problem.  The government ignored them, hoping to control people until this July 4th Holiday under the Biden administration.  But the dam broke this spring as people pushed their governors to ignore the CDC rules and reopen their economies, and thus, out came this rush of interest in the National Parks.  It looked for a time that the new standard would remain and that we would never return to a time in America without masks and social distancing.  But much to our credit, people got sick of being lied to, and they just started to ignore the government, and now there is this massive surge in National Park attendance.  People spent their time in isolation thinking about the things they’d like to do, like going to Yellowstone, and the moment they could, they did. 

We saw the same thing at Jenny Lake in the Tetons.  It was early in the morning when we arrived, and cars had already filled the parking lot and were piled up down the road toward Jackson for miles.  Now Jenny Lake is very nice; they have great accommodations.  Once we finally arrived in the little village, they have there like restrooms, a visitor center, and a gift shop at the foot of the magnificent mountains; it looked like Disney World with people occupying almost every bit of the available sidewalk.  It was packed.  The employees at those places had a kind of blasted look on their faces.  I was glad to see it.  I think it was good for people to get out and see such magnificent places.  I think it’s also good for the employees to be challenged a bit.  Maybe they got jobs with the National Park Service because they were liberal and didn’t want to work very hard, but this was a good reality check.  Whatever the viewpoint, the only reason can come from people leaving their homes and seeing their national parks, even if they were crowded.  I didn’t mind the crowds at all, but there were significant crowds that would have just been worse if there was a reservation system. 

The lesson is that this is what happens when government tampers with the will of the people.  Unforeseen circumstances are bound to arise.  This built-up serge of interest in National Parks was not planned. The reaction by the public has taken the government quite by shock; they were very flat-footed in dealing with the market needs.  And since the government does not make decisions based on market forces but bureaucratic sentiment, they were clueless about the outcome.  But that problem isn’t for us, the visitors. They’re going to have to figure it all out, the government. They’ll have to complain to someone else because we don’t want to hear it.  In the future, when they think of shutting down society and the economy that fuels it, they need to think of these mistakes.  These surges may last for years.  Things may never get back to normal for the National Parks as the lockdowns look to have triggered people’s desire to do something in their life they used to put off.  I suspect that the new normal that everyone has been talking about isn’t accepting lockdowns and more government regulations on personal behavior. Instead, an increase in people not putting off what they could do today might have otherwise been inclined to wait until tomorrow.  Because with government, they may screw up everything tomorrow, leaving today as the only choice to do something.
