They Killed James Bond: A warning to us all that nobody escapes from progressives

They Killed James Bond

Studios were surprised in Hollywood when the new James Bond film No Time To Die didn’t blow the doors off the box office over its opening weekend.  Like every other underperforming fool these days, they wanted to blame Covid, which governments created to commit election fraud, not that they killed James Bond in the movie.  Who thought that was a good idea?  After 60 years of narrow escapes, they found a way and a time for James Bond to die at the end of No Time To Die. They probably should have taken their own advice given to them in the title. It was just another disappointment that we are all getting used to strong, white, male characters that progressives think they can kill in stories and replace them with women or people of color for the sake of the visual aspects of things and that people would accept it.  Over the last two years, as we have waited for this movie to come out, the rumors of the next James Bond being a woman, a gay guy, or all kinds of other things have been discussed openly.  When the movie finally opened, enough people had enough.  It leaked out that this Daniel Craig James Bond was going to die, and people weren’t exactly in a rush to see it happen.  It’s not enough to make a technically good movie; James Bond is one of those special cases where he’s a hero who always gets away, like Bugs Bunny.  But then again, Bugs Bunny is pretty much banned these days too.  Any strong characters without obvious flaws in the mind of progressives are a danger to their politics, so they look to get rid of them and replace them with flawed, mortal characters who are easy to control by the government. 

This isn’t unique to the Bond film franchise.  I have written many hundreds of thousands of words about the failure of Disney to handle the Star Wars franchise.  It was astonishing that given all the great resources they had in Star Wars left to them by George Lucas, that they screwed it up so badly.  Yet when I saw The Force Awakens back in 2015, it was clear that when they decided to kill Han Solo, the plan was the same as Bond.  Kill off Anglo-Saxon white men in the public’s minds so their rule over mankind will end, starting with stories.  Then replace them with people of color and women, and make them like it.  That was essentially the goal of the new Star Wars films, and people rejected them so severely that the brand is now permanently damaged.  Disney has a new CEO who has been brought in to fix things.  Lucasfilm is also moving people around who like Star Wars to repair the brand, which will take years if possible.  I think they’ll make things better, but the damage is already set.  Some things you can’t tamper with.  If a character has a special place in people’s minds, you better treat them well and not take them for granted.  Otherwise, don’t expect to use them to drive box office results while at the same time appeasing all the anti-capitalist radicals who have infiltrated leftist thinking for communist domination of the world. 

Star Wars is an easy one to see because it’s so obvious.  As big of a company as they are, Disney never understood why people liked the film franchise.  Some of the plotlines they have introduced then rejected over the last several years indicate that Kathy Kennedy never understood why the films she was invited to produce worked, like the Indiana Jones films and all the Steven Spielberg projects she was a part of.  Because she thought she could interfere with what the public liked and that as long as space creatures and spaceships were flying around, that people would buy a ticket to her liberal propaganda.  Well, as it turns out, that’s not how things work.  People want heroes they can believe in.  People worth watching who manage to outsmart the bad guys. That’s why people buy a movie ticket.  Reality is tough enough.  When people enter a darkened theater, they want to see hope. 

I think movie box office results are some of the best votings there are.  People truly vote with their feet.  It’s not easy for Democrats to cheat the vote because they still can’t control what people like.  Ultimately people decide what they like and see and if they don’t want to see James Bond getting killed.  Then they won’t see it happen.  They might catch the movie on cable later, but they aren’t going to pay money to see it happen.  One of the clear political strategies that China has in mind for America and all the Davos insurgents is to rob our culture of hopes and dreams and instead show that even James Bond eventually gets it in the end.  Filmmakers seem to want to praise those types of people at cocktail parties rather than being blamed for being just another capitalist producer who put profits over the party.  The ultimate check on that power is to reject those films at the box office, which happened with the new James Bond film.  They killed Bond.  And the box office reflects that people didn’t want to see it happen. Just as Disney killed off Han Solo and thought they could replace him with some Dora the Explorer character, and they’d still make money.

Yet to continue to hide these things from the public, every time they get caught, Covid is used to hide the incompetence of the participants.  No Time To Die was supposed to be released in early April of 2020.  It has had its release date pushed back many times, finally hitting theaters in October of 2021, really at a terrible time for a Bond film.  This is what the Great Reset looks like, folks.  Incompetent people release their movies that used to be valuable to the public.  The public forgets about them and moves on to other things, and when the results don’t come out the way stakeholders expect, well then, they blame Covid.  Ultimately, governments have interfered with the marketplace, and the bootlickers have wasted more time appeasing them than actually trying to make a movie people want to see.  The governments are the new audience to appease, not the popcorn-eating public, and these projects are flat and boring.   And coming out of a disappointing time when governments tried to completely take over our healthcare with a made-up crisis in Covid, built in a Wuhan lab in China by Dr. Fauci NIH funding, movie producers are trying to take away anything that might be considered good in our movies and entertainment.  Their message to us is, “see, even James Bond gets it in the end.  Not even he can escape our power.” It shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of us, given what we have seen from authority figures in 2021.  The bad guys wrote this latest James Bond film as propaganda for the future they want to control.  That understanding makes me proud to see that people didn’t get suckered into it and decided to stay home.  No Time To Die didn’t come up short at the box office because of Covid.  People are starving for reasons to get out of the house.  They aren’t scared of the virus.  No, they don’t want to see one more icon of western civilization killed in front of their faces, which was the intention of the woke James Bond of this modern age.  People voted in a way that Democrats couldn’t steal, and it shows in the box office ultimately.

It’s Time to Make January 6th a National Holiday: Standing up to tyranny is a good thing that should be celebrated

Make January 6th a National Holiday

There are all kinds of ways to fight and defeat an opponent.  And that is precisely what we are experiencing in America; it’s not a fight so much between liberals and conservatives, but sovereignty over global order.  Corporations want that international order because it makes it easier for their lazy minds to plan.  Suppose the whole world is under one type of government. In that case, it dramatically simplifies operating in all those different countries if the United Nations is calling the shots, instead of The United States doing this or China doing that.  The corporate push to stabilize government systems, even toward communism, is very attractive to large corporations, which is why we have seen so much wokeness in America recently.  The fight has been to defeat sovereign Americans, rip it down, get rid of the flag, singing the National Anthem, history, all things that would remind Americans of their good past.  Then to rebuild it all back up under a United Nations type of world view.  This is certainly a commitment of the Biden administration.  Recently he announced that he was going to invite the United Nations to critic America on racism.  The same kind of tampering goes on with climate change.  We are being introduced to a new way of thinking globally, not domestically.  The corporate world wants to deliver to the United Nations a change state intact for its products.  But without the connection to American history.  And what we do know of American history, it should be an embarrassment about slavery, Indians, and the evils of capitalism.   

They don’t want to crush us into destruction.  They want to rebuild us into their desired consumer.  So with that in mind, you can see why election fraud occurred, and Trump was removed from office.  He told the United Nations that he would always put America First. Of course, every corporation that had already invested in the global change couldn’t have that.  They were too far down the rabbit hole to turn back by 2016 and 2017.  The machine was well in motion, even at Disney.  Most of America’s corporations had sold out and invested in the new global way of seeing the world.  We were told that even at our local zoning meetings.  It was too late to change back to the way things were.  Covid was created in the Wuhan lab in China by Dr. Fauci’s NIH people working with Bill Gates and several other progressive investors to use the virus the way it had been planned at Event 201 in New York, to create a Great Reset all across the world and a Build Back Better plan that only communists would find attractive.  This leads to our present problems that are blowing up in the insurgents’ face because Covid failed to spark a Great Reset in America.  It has worked in places where the government is most active, like public schools and government buildings.  But the American people haven’t fallen for it, which has created a lot of alarm among the globalists—the UN members who desperately want global socialism and the corporations who have already invested in that reality. 

For the globalists, the game was over on Election Night 2020; on November 3rd, they had done what they could and found 45,000 votes to put Biden over the top in the critical states for an electoral college victory.  The corporate media had sat on the Biden laptop October surprise, which easily impacted enough votes to flip the election from Trump to Biden.  Later even Democrats admitted that they would have voted differently if they had known what was on the Biden laptop and how it connected to China.  But all these crimes were committed behind a veil of Covid safety, giving a cover story unlike anything in the history of the world, and nobody was worried about ever getting caught.  Later, through state audits, we would discover that the political left and their corporate supporters went into a frenzy on election night, cheating in many uncoordinated ways, especially once the Vegas oddsmakers had called for Trump around 9 PM.  At that point, five states stopped counting, and in desperation, Democrats found the votes Biden needed. Still, it would take over a week after the election to make it happen to commit all kinds of crimes along the way, such as not letting observers witness the count.  Laws were being broken, an election was being stolen, and the globalists were daring us to make an aggressive move.  The threats were getting pretty rough.

When it came time to certify the election around January 6th, there were a lot of people who could see that things were wrong and they weren’t going to stand for it.  Some of them showed up at the Capitol in Washington D.C. to show their anger and protest.  Maybe they were baited by the FBI.  It doesn’t matter; what matters is that looking back, many of those people were right to question the election.  And what they did by occupying the Capitol was a proper thing to do.  It shouldn’t have turned to violence, but then again, election fraud shouldn’t have happened.  Our government should not have sold out to the global forces pushing for socialism under the umbrella of the United Nations.   People had a right to be upset about it.  It certainly wasn’t the worst thing that ever happened in our country.   Looking back on it, maybe it was one of the best.  In hindsight, it makes a lot more sense now.  It’s good to know that at least some people weren’t going to be suckered into our country’s theft and were willing to show up to do something about it. 

For that reason, I will start celebrating each year’s January 6th as a kind of Independence Day. I’ll buy fireworks and fly my flags to remember a modern instance where tyranny had to be fought and that some people showed up to meet it at the people’s house.  The fact that the government has unfairly prosecuted participants at that January 6th event only confirms what they are trying to hide.  When a government becomes abusive, especially when they are guilty of doing wrong, you know a replacement government is needed.  When they are holding people in solitary confinement when radical billionaires like George Soros are running around free, you know the system is not working on behalf of the American people.  But as I said, that was part of the plan, to separate us from our past, of our history.  Of our notion of sovereignty.  That is why we have current open borders so that our idea of America can be destroyed. We can be rebuilt under the control of the United Nations and the sustainability plans that they come up with at these climate conferences.  At the time, I didn’t see anything wrong with the protests of angry voters at the Capitol building on January 6th.  I thought it was healthy for politicians to see what might happen if they got caught double-crossing the American people, which they had.  I thought they were getting off easy and that a bit of protest with some broken windows was a fair warning.  Because of the crime, the collaboration with China over creating Covid-19 and using it to cheat an election to put in Joe Biden by corporate controllers was an unforgivable crime.  It was treason of the highest order, and we should celebrate that there are still people in America willing to stand up for the law, which is what they did on January 6th

Shooting From the Hip: The cost of socialism in any society

Don’t Learn to Stay in Your Lane

While I was working on the themes for my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, one of my most important stops was the British Museum and sitting in the places where Karl Marx had written his books that literally changed the world.  While in London for this investigation, I took my family to the best restaurants and spent some time investigating the areas around parliament to understand the radical swings of their class structure and how anybody could even think that what Marx put down in his books was good.  After sitting in Marx’s same seats in the museum, I confirmed what I already knew; Marx was lazy and worked his ass off to prove it.  Yes, that is a paradox of terms, but that was what the guy was suffering from.  While his family sat at home, broke and hungry, Marx and Engles at the British museum tried to show the world why the capitalists were evil.  And many in British society who enjoyed the nice things in life felt guilty because they either acquired a lot of power from socializing or other methods, and it rotted their minds with unearned doubt.  So they formed political parties like the Labor Party in England and the Democrat Party in America.  Other places around the world, too, adopted Marx not because they thought it would make a better world but because it gave more centralized power to governments. Hence, the idiocy of Karl Marx spread like wildfire in a dry forest, and rage of destruction swept over the world.  But to my thinking, fires are good, and it benefits people to see things for themselves. That’s why what I wrote in my book was necessary.  Without the stupidity of Karl Marx to highlight the benefits of capitalism with a defense of it in my Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, people may never have seen the differences between the two. 

Learning to Get Better

That’s what has happened with Marxism mixed in with capitalism; people didn’t notice the little things slowing us all down and constraining productivity.  Marxism has embedded itself in almost everything we do, but people did not see it as it was happening because as long as they could buy their cars, get milk at the grocery, and send their kids to school, they didn’t pay much attention.  But I did notice that it has been a source of constant frustration for me during my entire professional life, which started when I was still a teenager.  One thing about me that has always been criticized was that I “shot from the hip” too much.  People would say that I didn’t take careful aim in my life and take my time when shooting at targets.  That, of course, was a metaphor for my thought processes in how I manage things.  To others, I have always been the reckless cowboy who was too impulsive to be trusted.  Yet mysteriously, everything I have always touched succeeded.  I understood it on a conceptual level, but years later, when I would finally write a book about it, I had to understand it.  Like Marx, many people in the world are too lazy to become truly good at anything.  They grow up, they grow lazy, and they are content to be average.  So they bring this attitude to their businesses, and for their lazy minds, Marx was a kindred spirit.  While they wanted to make money in life, they didn’t want to work too hard to get it, so they adopted little bits of socialism along the way to make it so that they wouldn’t have to work too hard.  This point became very obvious to me once I started the sport of professional gunfighting for competitions.  I watched for years how real gunfighters could draw and shoot a gun by drawing from the hip in under a second.  It seemed impossible to me, but I wanted to learn to do it, so I began the learning process, and once I figured it out, all these other elements became very obvious.  Obvious enough to write a book about what I learned.

Shooting from the Hip is Good

One of the premises of communism is equality, which we hear about all the time now that Biden has been inserted in the White House to preserve these gains Marxists have made around the world.  But for equality to indeed happen, we must cripple those who are the best and fastest in life at certain things.  I often compare this metaphor to a hay bail truck full of farm animals traveling down the road at 45 miles per hour.  Up behind them, storming down the highway at 120 miles per hour, is a fancy sports car that can take curves on a dime and run all day long at 200 mph.  Socialist society says that the fancy car has to stay behind the truck because that is the constraint, that is the average, and to be fair, everyone needs to build their life off the average.  The speedy car is supposed to slow down to 45 mph and not pass.  Socialist society creates rules like double yellow lines to keep everyone staying in their lane so that socialism and communism can occur.  However, in America, the rules have always been in reverse.  The fast car was encouraged to pass or have a speed lane to travel in to go as fast as possible.  Speed limits aren’t made for the best and most competent; they are made for the average, the slow, and the lazy-minded.  Those who can’t or won’t think too fast to avoid an accident.  Therefore, the speedy car is penalized and encouraged to be less than it is in a democracy where the majority of the people decide what the average behavior should be.  This is how our businesses have been crippled and how the government has enforced converting America from capitalism to socialism over time.  Through rules and regulations intended to force people to stay in their lanes, not shoot from the hip, and ignite Karl Marx while suppressing Adam Smith.

I’ve always been that guy who shot from the hip, and I’m very proud of it.  Even now that I’m later in my life than when many of these things have been said about me, learning to shoot in Cowboy Fast Draw activities has shown me the essence of becoming better each day.  What seems impossible today may be quite possible tomorrow if only you put a little work into it.  That is what America did best in the past and still is better than anyplace else in the world mired in socialism and communism.  This is also how many of our corporations had become so woke, just as the politicians of England did when scrappy old Karl Marx worked himself to death trying to create a philosophy of government that justified his laziness.  I didn’t feel I could say that based on just my opinions of reading his books.  But I could say it after I sat in his seats and saw the world from all of their perspectives.  Marxism and its birthplace there in London intended to be in the world that hey bail truck going 45 miles per hour.  They created rules in life to protect the feelings of the slow and lazy from the speedy and competent.  And when they called me names like “cowboy” and a person who “shoots from the hip” too much, they might as well have been calling me the most derogatory names humans could call each other, hoping to peer pressure me into accepting average behavior.  But I never will.  Instead, I’ll explain the differences to people with a mind to hear it, and I’m not about to ever accept getting stuck behind slow traffic on the highway.  The goal of all of us should always be to get faster, wiser, and better.  Not to accept the lazy and dim-witted who want to rule the world but are too lazy to do it.

Election Fraud is Real in Maricopa County: There are many involved in “criminal intent” who must pay

Election Fraud Happened and the Perpetrators Must Pay

To begin understanding the problems coming with the Maricopa County, Arizona audit results, which show significant voter irregularities, is the definition of criminal intent.  Even though I feel sorry for everyone involved in the sad death of Gabby Petito, when she turned up missing and her fiancé drove home in her van to his parent’s house alone, red flags started jumping up everywhere.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what happened.  It looks presently that young Brian Laundrie told his parents what happened, and they helped his getaway.  Eventually, the FBI will want to charge the parents with aiding and abetting instead of turning over their kid to authorities once they knew about a crime, the murder of Gabby Petito.  In helping their son get away from authorities with a ten-day head start, they committed criminal intent to commit the crime of hiding evidence and impeding a criminal investigation. It’s a tragedy, but it’s all over the news so people can have some reference point for why what happened with the election fraud case of 2020 is so much worse.  When any person or a group of people intend to hide evidence, sway opinion on a criminal matter, or deliberately sabotage a criminal investigation, they are guilty of criminal intent.  It doesn’t matter if it is two losers committing election fraud in the back of a van in a Wal-Mart parking lot, or it’s the United Nations attempting to infect our legal system with billionaire bootlicking investments hoping to use the Cloward and Piven Democrat playbook to overwhelm our system of government to topple America so that they could take over as the world’s global power.  It’s all criminal intent, the intent to commit a crime that becomes a prosecutable case mandating justice.

With the Cloward and Piven strategy, I am surprised that more people don’t quickly see what’s going on here.  Personally, I don’t think there is anything particularly smart about Francis Fox Piven and Richard Cloward, who came up with the strategy.  If you are a Marxist, socialist, communist, and sympathizer of all forms of collectivism, their approach has the genius of cockroaches.  They are parasites feeding off the efforts of others, and they tend to survive in the vilest conditions.  But they hate capitalism, and they have always hated America.   And their methods gained renewed attention around the world during the Obama administration.  People didn’t have much tolerance for their hippie drivel during the Reagan administration. Still, Bush and Clinton set the world up for “The New World Order,” and to get there, Cloward and Piven were going to be used to get the world equal with each other, which meant America would have to be brought down. That’s where we find ourselves today, some twenty years later.  To review the Cloward and Piven strategy, you can understand it in four basic steps, overload a system, encourage chaos to ensue, then take control. That’s when socialism and communism are introduced as the new management method.  Once you show that capitalism cannot solve the problem, centralized authority is utilized to take over.  That is what the United Nations is doing to America, through Covid, through UN regulations, and with their intent to commit election fraud to overthrow our country and to restructure it under the umbrella of the United Nations. 

Most of the world’s billionaires are in on the plan because they have already leveraged their assets to the United Nations strategy.  For them, it’s access to increased market share.  They are highly motivated to join the United Nations way of looking at the world and were more than willing to direct their businesses in that direction.  That is how the media companies became involved in election fraud.  The United Nations did not want Donald Trump to be president again.  Neither did China.  So they conspired with liberals within America to overthrow our election with massive voter fraud.  They used a Cloward and Piven strategy to attack our system from every direction and install a known criminal in Joe Biden who would open the gates to the kingdom they wanted.  Biden would never stand up to them because he couldn’t afford to.  They had the goods on him, so he was a safe install.  That is when these liberal forces stepped outside of the American legal system and decided to commit election fraud on a mass scale. They’d use those same billionaires to control the messaging, especially the internet, and contain the story.  In their minds, they hoped to overthrow America within a few months of the new Biden administration. 

Yet, what we found in the election audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, and will likely see in many other places from the 2020 election is this Cloward and Piven strategy gone crazy.  It was unorganized theft from many disjointed directions, so the evidence is abundant.  But they felt secure in making mistakes because they never feared getting caught.  The planners, in this case, thought that American election laws were irrelevant compared to events around the world, so sloppiness was accepted.  For every conspirator who promoted hiding the election fraud because they wanted good jobs under the new regime of the United Nations, they tagged themselves with “criminal intent.” With every manipulator of bandwidth, of web traffic flow, of every media writer and commentator who attempted to hide what had happened with election fraud, they have all committed criminal intent.  They deliberately committed a crime against the United States and tried to cover it up.  Just like what is happening in the case with the poor girl Gabby Petito.  Stealing votes is not acceptable; it’s theft of a person’s property, their right to vote.  Voting is the spine of our republic, and tampering with elections is one of the worst crimes that can be committed.  The murder of a person is horrible.  But so is the attempted murder of a country.  It’s all murder.  And those who assisted with the crime are all guilty of criminal intent.

With the results of Maricopa County, our country is on a course that will have to decertify the Biden election.  It will take a while to do other similar audits.  But the crime scene is clear to us now.  We can see that a crime did happen, and there are conspirators involved in the process.  It is no longer speculation, and those most guilty are those hoping to bluff their way out of the mess they’ve put themselves in—the laws of our nation matter.  The United Nations does not get to override us, which has been the assumption all along.  Many of our political class don’t want to know about this evidence because they’ll have to admit that the election fraud was an act of war.  That the Cloward and Piven strategy against us mandates that we do something about it.  And many of them don’t want to have to face that reality. They’d instead go to The Louvre in France and eat a croissant on the dirty streets of Paris and consider themselves worldly and cultured than to fight the United Nations and their pawn in this game, China.  But we must face facts, our election was attacked, we have had hostilities from foreign countries attempt to overthrow our nation, and we must answer the bell.  We didn’t ring it; they did.  And now they must pay.

Netflix Propaganda Trying to Prop up Joe Biden: Turning Point 9/11 and the War on Terror

Netflix Tries to Help Joe Biden

To say the least, the new Netflix movie Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror was one of the worst pieces of propaganda that I have seen in a long time.  It was essentially an explanation of the Biden administration pulling out of Afghanistan so recently that it covered all the current events of August 2021.  It was as If community organizer Barack Obama had been whispering in the ear of Joe Biden after all, telling him and his administration precisely what to do with Afghanistan, letting him be the face of it. At the same time, Obama and his Nantucket friends worked on this documentary for Netflix to sell to the public.  The documentary series, which is five episodes long, sounded like a speech written and performed by Barack Obama.  It was an utterance of progressivism in all its despiteful colors.  But it’s worth watching because it’s always good to understand how the other side thinks.  After showing the history of 9/11, before and after the event that eventually gave so much power over to the federal government intruding American privacy forever, the series went right up to the scripted withdrawal of American troops by the Biden administration.  It was an attempt to whitewash the troop exit by blaming every conservative president over the last 40 years, including Ronald Reagan.  But the Democrat presidents, such as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama get a free pass which led to Joe Biden having to clean up the whole mess with a message that ended the program with a solution.  If only people loved each other more, none of the terrible things that happened with the war on terror would have occurred.

The series never addresses why the anti-capitalist terrorists of Osama bin Laden flew planes into the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001.  Only, it insinuates that we had it coming because we helped Afghanistan fight the communists of the Soviet Union during the years of Reagan and that we had all that anger coming.  So, we were supposed to take our medicine and accept the terrorist activity instead of going into a rage against every terrorist we could find and torture them until we were satisfied. We could infiltrate every terrorist network in the world.  While it was true, America was attacked, and people expected someone’s head on a plate, and the government under Bush at the time had to give them one.  Someone’s ass needed to be kicked.  And kick it, we did.  The documentary questions the sanity of this approach as if defending American ideas was something that we shouldn’t do.  These are the same forces advocating for ANTIFA, for Black Lives Matters burning down cities, and for Marxism wherever they can get it.  These are also the same people who don’t want sports players standing for the National Anthem or even saying the Pledge of Allegiance anywhere.  We are dealing with radical America-hating tyrants here who made this Netflix documentary, and it should make anybody sick to their very souls.

As I explained recently, winning the war with Afghanistan or anything regarding the War on Terror has been impossible because we have many in politics who indeed are domestic terrorists who want to see the end of America and the rise of the United Nations.  They generally take money from George Soros or Michael Bloomberg and many other liberal billionaires functioning outside the election parameters of our republic, and their plans are already well established.  Our soldiers could fight in Afghanistan every day for the rest of their lives, and those domestic terrorists in our government would not let them win.  Many have open alliances with China, and China wants to re-establish control of a kind of Silk Road through Afghanistan to acquire mineral rights and the black-market drug trade.  And they want to leverage Taiwan, so they wanted Americans out of the region.  It’s Vietnam all over again; terrorists in America wanted communism and were undermining patriotic efforts at every turn to make it happen. It’s the same thing in Afghanistan. 

I used to watch interviews of John Wayne, who made the great film The Green Beret, to motivate the American war effort in Vietnam and see him so dejected throughout the war.  He made movies about gunning down enemies who were defined as villains.  But in the case of Vietnam, the enemies were political.  The soldiers did their fighting and were good at it.  But the objectives were deliberately kept obscure to allow communism to flow into the country and take over as the big industrial country of America was forced to yield to village antagonists and be embarrassed on the world stage.  That is precisely the same strategy in Afghanistan.  The Taliban loves their goats a lot more than their women.  They have nothing to lose, so they fight with no fear.  They have been radicalized to the extreme and politically poised to win by hiding in the mountains until America was defeated from the inside out. Of course, China was whispering in their ear.  And to swallow the whole thing altogether, Obama and Biden did what they always wanted to do, pull out of Afghanistan and attempt to blame it all on a Republican president.  And if anybody questioned them, they would scream, “COVID” and try to force everyone to put on a mask and hide from the world while they did their bidding. 

Whether intentional or by sheer stupidity, the true essence of 9/11 was that the CIA and the FBI screwed up.  They didn’t speak to each other and let the terrorists slip by to commit these monstrous acts.   And in the aftermath, just as we have seen with the Covid playbook, the government passed more laws, expanded the government, and made travel harder, all in the name of protecting America from further terrorist attacks.  But if the FBI had been doing their jobs in the first place, 9/11 never would have happened.  Based on what they did to the Trump campaign, the radicalism of their liberal ranks, it is believable that they might have let 9/11 happen on purpose so that our government could expand. They could usher in such a way some globalist utopia that the United Nations would manage in the way that Sir Thomas More imagined.  It sounds like a good idea when you are sipping wine in the backyards of Georgetown. Still, things get more confusing when trying to apply such things to real life.  Some people would vote for Trump as a solution in the future, and goats in Afghanistan have more political capital than a good-looking woman who they beat to a bloody pulp just for letting her skin show in public. Radical religious zealots and sheer stupidity caused 9/11.  And when Americans indicated that they were willing to give up some freedoms to have some safety, well then, the government thought it had a formula for world takeover working with communist governments, first in the Soviet Union, and now today, China.  This has left the rest of us to feel abandoned and confused as our government ran off without us to make deals not in the interest of the United States but by forces against us because that’s where the power of tomorrow they think will come from.  Like John Wayne from years ago, we couldn’t fathom the betrayal, the masks of evil we were presented with.  This is why until recently, we didn’t see it.  But now, even tricks like this documentary aren’t working.  People nowadays, enough people, see through it all to the truth.

The Legal Case Against Dominion: How it will all come down between public versus private

How the Dominion Case will Play Out

Literally, everywhere I go, I’m being asked about what will happen with Mike Lindell’s discovery of election fraud and all the work Dr. Frank has put into the effort.  At the Cyber Symposium, Dominion pulled the nuclear button. They had help from the judicial system, US District Court Judge Carl J. Nichols.  This is the same judge who had not upheld the TikTok ban from President Trump, so he’s one of those guys.  An activist who looked good on paper until the bombs and missiles of real philosophy challenged his judicial opinion.  That judge was a philosophy minor in college, and you know what that means; he studied all the wrong people adopting too much Immanuel Kant and a heavy dose of Plato.  Under pressure, we saw what he did, so it’s no surprise at all that he failed to give a proper First Amendment defense when Dominion pressed for the advancement of the lawsuit against Mike Lindell, Rudy Giuliani, and Sydney Powell.  The point of the lawsuits was to shut those guys up and make them afraid to reveal what was possible with the Dominion machines.  And it worked with most of the networks; Fox News wouldn’t touch anything on election fraud for fear of lawsuits, CNN was flat out pretending that everything was on the up and up, while smaller networks like Newsmax, OANN, and Real America’s Voice flew under the radar for a while, until Dominion started to turn their aggression in that direction.  I was interested in what Alan Dershowitz was going to say on the matter as a defense, and once I heard it, it’s all obvious now.  So, here’s the latest translated into common sense.  If you have been following this story on Frank Speech.com, you might have some framework to work with, but it’s still very murky, on purpose, and filled with chaos to keep the essence of the case shrouded in fearful speculation.

The threat is that this is a free speech debate and that if Lindell and the others lose, then we will forever lose our free speech and thus any hope at Constitutional Law in the future.  But I see a bluff, much like Biden has tried to do with Covid.  It’s not much different from a football game where an offense tries to trick a defense into jumping offsides on a 4th and 1 with a hard count.  Everyone needs to relax and not jump offsides. Don’t let them bait you in a panic. Dominion’s most robust case is to scare people into inaction because they don’t have anything to stand on if they have to go to court. After all, their argument is weak.  They want to be a private company acting in the public interest.  Dershowitz revealed his argument while filing an appeal on the case movement, and it pretty much nails down the bluff to a silly banter.  They may have a lot of money to throw at appearing threatening, but in a court of American law, they can’t hope to be both public and private, which is just what they are proposing.  Dominion can’t have it both ways. 

It’s essentially the same argument that Facebook, Google, and Twitter have.  They have allied with a private company with the governments of the world while behaving as state actors, and that’s going to fall apart.  They developed a lot of power to abuse this paradox out of the good graces of a trustworthy American public, but they burnt that same public.  Now it’s time for that legal challenge to occur.  It’s slow because they’ve poured so much money into the political system, and many politicians have taken it.  But people are voting out those bought-up candidates and replacing them with firebrands like Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Tylor Greene.  I can report from personal knowledge that from school boards to governors to Senate races, a new breed of fighting Republicans is coming, and by the time it’s time for Trump to run again in 2024, it will be a very different world.  These court cases have a shelf life, and for Facebook and Dominion, their strongest hour is present.  They will only get weaker over time.  So for them, they took a risk to go all-in on these lawsuits and committing themselves to election fraud and the cover of it.  Many of these plans were created in secrecy with an unsuspecting public.  Well, they aren’t so gullible now, and they will demand legal action.  Of that is the separation of public versus private endeavor.  Can a private company act in a public capacity?  Well, no, not without destroying the very essence of a republic.  And even activist judges will not go that far because they would lose all their power if they did.  They are willing to play around with such ideas, but they won’t destroy their professions when the rubber hits the road.  And that will spell doom for Dominion and the other tech-related companies involved in the very public 2020 election.

You might ask, how do I know these things?  Well, let’s say I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. Yes, they have teams and teams and swarms of teams who are working on these cases.  But much of it is a bluff; it’s a 4th and 1 on the 30. They’ll take a timeout, take the 3 points, and hope to play keep away for the rest of the game before Trump gets re-elected in 2024.  Meanwhile, we have the House and Senate to win majorities in, and these court cases need to play out in the waiting game.  Just remember that each month it goes on, public support for Dominion will erode.  Facebook is bleeding off-market share as younger users turn to alternatives.  Facebook is the thing their grandparents used.  Their market model was built for public tampering. Once this legal issue of private versus public ownership is settled, they will already have reduced support from the public for their platform, and they will die off, just as MySpace did.  They are very vulnerable to destruction based on their actions. They have bet all in on a global society that will abolish the American Constitution and replace it with some global charter that they helped create. 

I talked to a well-respected judge a few days ago. He felt that there were no other means of dealing with the federal government but with armed insurrection that our only hope was to rebuild our country from the ground up in our local communities.  And I get that.  That sounds fun to me. I’d love to be part of some historic gunfight that took back our country from the evils of globalism.  And while I respect him too much to correct him, I think it will all go down another way.  It’s going to come down to this legal issue of public versus private, and the judicial world will have to go against the tech companies, like Dominion, for their survival.  When judges must pick between the mobs who will attempt to lynch them at a local restaurant or their ability even to make a living, they will choose the living and bolt the doors to their homes to keep the punks and losers out at gunpoint.  And when Trump returns in a few years, the stage will be set for a massive revolution of capitalism that people will be more than happy to embrace.  But all that will be triggered by the work that Mike Lindell has been doing, legally.  The pressure may be scary, but the path out of it has been revealed, and Dominion has shown us the way to their destruction.  It’s just something that hasn’t happened yet, but it will, as sure as you’re reading this.

Biden Threatens Businesses With Covid: When anti-science becomes a weapon of cover-ups

Remember the FEMA Camps?

I’ve told everyone before what Covid was, why it was made, and what the world’s governments plan to do with it.  Just as a reminder, this push to impose vaccines on businesses and the Biden administration’s mask mandates are strict because they have no legal authority to do so.  So hoping that peer pressure will do all their work that the law forbids, they are implying to businesses that if they don’t enact stricter than the CDC policies for managing Covid, then they might create a perceptual unsafe work environment for their employees, forcing them out of fear of litigation to adopt the Biden tactics. That’s all it is.  Like China, the Biden Democrats and many foreign agents of mass corruption connected to this administration are in deep trouble with many things they have been caught in.  Such as the election fraud of 2020, which is presently unraveling, the debacle of Afghanistan, which will make Iran look silly in comparison.  The economy is tanking, and the Biden people need something to blame since their policies are stifling growth.  Oh, and also, Larry Elder is about to win as governor in California punishing Gavin Newsom for his lockdowns there harming one of the world’s biggest economies. They need a story to take people’s eyes off the southern border, which is a mess.  So many terrible things have been unleashed in the opening months of a corrupt Biden administration that these losers hope that Covid will save them once again.  Notice how Dr. Fauci has lost his mind over this Delta variant just as Rand Paul pressed him on his connection to the Wuhan lab in China and the funding by NIH of Covid.  We now know Covid was made in the lab there for what the Chinese imply is a bio-weapon.  Yeah, Covid is all those things, meant to hide these crimes and more.  The masks and vaccines are not about health maintenance at all.  And the push for vaccines has to have a majority of people near 100% to hide what the vaccine will do to people.  Suppose statistical sampling is 100%, and we all of a sudden have mysterious deaths, sterilization, and other ailments creeping into society within a few years. In that case, nobody will see that healthy people who did not take the vaccine are not suffering the same conditions.  If everyone gets the jab, nobody will know the difference.  This is what you get when malicious, bad people take over a government and get caught doing ill will on people and still hope to cover up their debacles.

I’ve heard these stories for years, and now it’s pretty clear where the old fears of FEMA camps came from.   I think the area I’m in outside of Cincinnati was designated Sector 5.  Troubled people were to be taken to the railyards just south of Indianapolis to be quarantined.  It was never quite clear who would go there, would it be sick people somehow made that way by the government or holdouts against some government mandate like resistance to the vaccination.  But given the conditions of our times, the forces at play have hit the panic button, perhaps too soon, and now we see what we see.  But it’s not a surprise to me at all.  Those FEMA camp rumors look to be more fact than fiction, and those were ten years ago.  I remember the pictures of the plastic coffins stored on the side of railroad tracks for what purpose nobody could imagine.  The world was simpler back then; nobody could imagine a day where the government would stop the economy and force all of us to stay in our homes under force.  Now it’s not so scandalous. 

I always took those kinds of things in stride.  I think the people who run these government agencies are idiots, and they can be easily beaten.  If they decide to intrude on our lives, then we are free to fight them.  I generally leave them alone as long as they leave me alone.  I don’t want such people in charge of my health or safety.  No doubt, they have been talking about this for a long time; the rumors made it out onto the Alex Jones show, well before YouTube made that show one of its first targets of censorship.  Now we know why, and we know that Big Tech was in on this game from the start.  Like I said in the video above, this is all anti-science. It’s been covered in Ayn Rand’s book Anthem, where people far in the future are dazzled to discover the light bulb again.  Their tyrannical society had traded science for submission.

I don’t think all of the government is in on the gig, but many federal employee types find complete authority attractive.  The Big Tech companies like Google, Twitter, and Facebook played their part as government censors immediately with Covid.  They were in on the game plan from the start, and that would be the first place to go to prosecute for the attack on our country.  They denied medical help to people sick with Covid by censoring references to hydroxychloroquine and Regeneron cocktails to manage the virus.  We were meant to have the virus manage us, not science containing the virus.  That was always the plan from the very beginning, and many people knew it.  The conspiracy theories may not have been as sinister as we thought regarding the FEMA camps, but there was more truth to it than fiction, and we are in that nightmare now. 

But what caused the nightmare?  It was the cover-up of the crimes, and I don’t think what we see now was how things were supposed to go.  The Donald Trump presidency was not supposed to happen, and it pulled the scab off the wound created by the SWAMP too early.  The Democrats and their puppet masters had to push the panic button to lay ground cover for the many crimes they were caught in, which we see now.  They are caught in this election scandal, and people are unwilling to hide behind a curtain of wokeness to conceal the truth.  They might have in 2020 when this Covid game was first played on us.  But not now.

We know too much.  Everyone knows that the best measure to fighting off viruses is a person’s immune system.  Vaccination is a means to managing a virus in a society with weakened immune systems and wouldn’t be wrong if that were the case.  Yet, that’s not what we are talking about here.  I would never undermine my own immune system with medicine unless it were necessary.  And it’s not necessary.  This virus was created as an attack, not as some occurring natural threat, so the solution to it is not in vaccinations, but in politics, where the virus was really created.  And for the government, mandates are about as tough as wet paper holding up a paint can.  They have no legal grounds at all.  They have no power.  All they have are implied threats which are designed to scare a workforce into acting against employers.  That then forces employers to adopt the government policy to protect themselves from potential litigation.  And that’s all the government can do, is scare people into compliance because the actual science is weak and full of corruption.  As human beings, we should know better, and they think that fear will rule over logic.  But then again, these are the same idiots who have entangled themselves in all these cover-ups.  With their track record, why would anybody think that something they do would work now?  Think things through, dear reader. Don’t be a buffalo watching all the other buffalos being killed around you and just standing there grazing.  Because they think you will, stand there and take it.

We Don’t Have the Right Politics for Space Travel: We’ll have to change that before settling Mars

To move into Space, we need Capitalism as the driver of our politics

I am by far not an Elon Musk fanboy.  I like a lot about Elon Musk and the great work he does with Tesla and SpaceX.  But I’m not crazy at all about his talk about universal incomes and climate change.  I view a lot of what he says as a guy throwing up ideas, much the way he runs his companies, and if someone can shoot holes in his thoughts, he welcomes that chance.  He sees it as making things better.  I could talk and argue with Elon Musk all day and year, and I would have fun doing it.  And I think he would too.  But I found an extraordinary moment from him recently on Part III of the exclusive Everyday Astronaut interview where Elon walked them around the Starbase facility ahead of a Superheavy launch attempt. I’ll put those interviews up here for you to watch, but I found them remarkable.  Space X is how most companies should be run. It reminded me of the eventual aim of my recent book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, which is to learn not to be afraid of those who intend to impose fear on you.  To learn not to fall in love with rigid rules and to reunite yourself to risk because that’s how the human race advances.  During Part III, Elon paused and referred to just that very concept.  But he knows he can’t say such things.  He has all kinds of people who follow him, liberals, conservatives, people who have no idea what they are.  He currently has to work with the Biden administration if he wants to send ships into space.  He must also work with other countries, like China, because we are all tangled together in unhealthy ways.  So, I get why he couldn’t say what he wanted to say.  But I am under no such restriction. 

I don’t typically think of the “degrowth movement” as an accurate word. Still, the way Mark Levin talked about it in his recent book, American Marxism, seems more appropriate when talking about the sciences than just saying “socialism” or “communism.” Many young people think of these things not as a recent threat but as an ancient menace that expired well before their time.  But they understand growth, and for this topic, it’s certainly the correct way to term what the political left has been doing.  Elon Musk has played around with left-leaning ideas, such as the universal income, electric infrastructure ran by solar, and even smoking pot on a podcast to show how cool and hip he was.  Those are all things that have made me ignore what Elon Musk has been doing.  That is until he does something magnificent like developing the Falcon rockets for reusable landings and building the Starships in Texas.  Slowly over time, I’ve watched Elon as he has tried to do “growth” things in a world run increasingly by “degrowth” personalities; he has been getting frustrated.  For instance, he moved to Texas, leaving California behind after the ridiculous Covid policies shut down the state economically.  And recently, when environmentalists threw protests toward his desire to build a Starship factory at the Starport facility because of water concerns, he sounded more like a Trump supporter than a centralist libertarian. 

Musk is trying to do all pro-growth in a world being drug into a no-growth period by the participants of the Vico Cycle, which I explain in detail in my Gunfighter’s Guide to Business.  These cycles are not new to the human race, they have occurred many times in the past, and we end up constantly re-inventing ourselves.  And that is what Elon Musk sees he is up against, and he let it out a bit during that Part III interview.  That was the primary reason I wrote my book, to help people not repeat the past, but to punch through into this new space age not with restriction and fear, which the communists of the world want, but with unrestricted adventure fueled by the power of capitalism.  When it comes down to the various philosophies, we cannot all have different ideas about the direction of the human race.  We either want to grow or retreat into the huts of history and return to yelling at lightning bolts and attributing gods to their origins to make sense out of a storm.  Or, we want to fly about those mysteries into the worlds beyond and fulfill our quests for adventure, both large and small, on a vast playing field of unlimited possibilities.  The two views of the world will not live together forever.  The inflection point is upon us.

And that’s when Elon Musk realized that everything done at SpaceX would disappear in an instant without him.  It is he alone that is doing all these outstanding achievements.  Sure, he has lots of brilliant employees who do the heavy lifting, but he provides the vision, and without vision, nothing happens.  If human beings are going to be a space-oriented society, then a new type of government will have to be embraced.  The one we have now, which fought hard to keep Donald Trump from being president and wanted to get rid of him when he was, will not allow the efforts of Elon Musk either to carry humans into space.  We have to solve one problem at the philosophical level if we are ever to put 1 million people onto Mars like Elon Musk wants to do.  We have to have a growing economy with an increasing workforce to accommodate it all.  To have hundreds of thousands of people on the moon, Mars, and wherever else in the next couple of decades, Elon can do the math that was in his words during the interview.  The illogical politics of our current moment, driven by communism and Marxism, are just wrong for the adventure of space. 

Going even further, we have never solved these problems even in our science fiction, except perhaps in Star Wars.  People need to be free, adventurous, experimental, and free to fail for space to work.  A micromanaging government will always be in the way of what Elon Musk wants to do.  He can only smoke joints so much, enough to keep the parasites off his heels.  He can only spout off so much greenie weenie appeasement to keep the environmental protestors from standing in the way of a new Starship manufacturing plant in the middle of the desert.  And that is the point of my book, not to crawl back into the Old West and sleep in hot unairconditioned cabins using the restroom outside.  And getting water with a bucket every time you wanted a drink.  Modern conveniences are good to have.  But what we may not want to leave behind is the courage and adventure of discovery and wealth building.  I would say that those are far more essential things than climate preservation or the appeasement of soft-natured Marxists looking for a big daddy government to care for them the way their parents failed.  Once we solve those problems, we can then move to space.  Elon Musk has figured out how millions of people are excited about it and follow his every move.  They don’t know that the politics they wish to ignore are just the very thing that will keep their feet on the ground and their starships from flying.  We must solve the politics before we can solve the space.

Lakota Votes for Mask Mandates: The squeaky wheel gets the grease

The Lakota School Board trying to vote on Mask Mandates

As it is everywhere, the health directors, national and local, want their power back. Still, the governors in many states don’t want to return to the kind of authoritarian rule that gave health departments so much power during the first year of Covid.  In Butler County, Ohio, where I live, the health director and bureaucratic officials have been working wherever they can to intimidate businesses and government establishments into CDC compliance for the sheer desire of wanting to boss someone around.  So, of course, they are putting pressure on several local school boards in Butler County to implement mask mandates.  In the satire above, which isn’t far from the truth, the Lakota school board is trying to figure out how to deal with the health director ahead of the meeting on August 23rd, 2021.  The Lakota school system is being pressured by outrageous compliance to CDC guidelines or self-imposed mask mandates. It’s a rock and a hard place for Lakota. They either deal with the wrath of the Butler County Health officials, or they deal with the anger of the furious parents.  And for this school board, at Lakota, it is way beyond their ability to deal with leaving them to pander to the squeaky wheel.  So if you as a parent don’t want masks on your kids while in school, you better get to that meeting and be that squeaky wheel.  Otherwise, the underhanded tactics of the health department are going to play their games of tyranny to establish authoritarian rule. 

Of course, no matter what you think about Covid, there is zero to less proof that masks do anything but make the situation worse.  That stupidity is for adults to sort out, but children should never be victimized to wear masks based on such flimsy science.  If people want to wear them, have at it.  Just as a casual observation, I’ve seen cultures wearing masks in Asian countries for years, and it’s always more about compliance than health.  This attempt to mask the American population is just more of that imposition of eastern cultures on western cultures, just as the Beatles have been trying to do for years and many thousands of other sources attempting to tell us in the west that yielding to authority is the way to solve problems.  No, it’s not.  I had my family at the zoo recently, and they were trying to push the latest from the CDC, encouraging people to wear masks.  Only a few dumb fools were doing so.  My wife and I went to Costco to get a hot dog and a drink for our date night, and they were encouraging people to wear masks, forcing their employees to do so to put that peer pressure on people.  But guess what, most people were not wearing the stupid masks, and I felt sorry for the dumb fools who fell for it.  Yet all the trouble starts with these crazy lunatics in the local health departments who are hungry for their mall cop powers to be restored to them by governors who have lost their ability.

Andy Beshear, the governor of Kentucky, has been a disaster.  He wants to force children to wear masks in school, but the supreme court now challenges him after William Bertelsman granted a restraining order on Beshear.  These kinds of fights are happening all over the country, especially in Florida.  The trend is against the tyrants, the health officials.  Now that people have seen the game, there is no public appetite for the mask mandates.  The federal government has not made its case for why masks should be used.  They are hot, they smell bad and are gross, and they display a kind of anti-science that some backwater countries would implement as a means to solving problems.  And people are sick of them.  Even people who might be liberal are not wearing the masks if they can get away with it.  But all those places mentioned, Costco, the zoo, amusement parks, and the like, are feeling pressure from the compliance cultures to implement that stupidity, which is how the schools feel pressure to comply.  But the attack against our children is reprehensible, and it deserves to be fought with everything we have to fight with.  These school boards will cave if the parents don’t get involved.  Edgewood schools in Butler County have struggled with this issue for weeks, and the parents have spoken up.  Monroe is also going through tribulations.  If Lakota falls, the rest of them will follow.  And that’s the game the health directors want.  They want to rule in silence, from their offices using a phantom menace to scare everyone into some ridiculous authority rule.  So the voices have to be heard at the school board meetings. Otherwise, the school boards will yield to the pressure. 

Watching people wear these masks the second time around, who are in the extreme minority in public, you can almost see the deadness in their eyes.  That desire to comply with authority because they are too lazy to think is a public health crisis.  They are more dangerous to society than any virus because their willingness to comply encourages these bureaucratic tyrants to grab power as they are now.  Covid did not come out and kill everyone like it was told to us.  There are some heartbreaking stories here and there, but fewer people are dying of Covid than are getting killed in car accidents, and people don’t stop driving cars over every crash.  For most Americans, Covid is an acceptable risk.  They might stay home from work for a few days and get over it if they get it.  They want alternatives like a Regeneron Covid Cocktail or a dose of Hydroxychloroquine.  They may use ultraviolet light to kill the virus, a legitimate method of managing viruses, especially UVC light.  Science is great, and there are methods we all know about now.  But this dumb method of wearing a mask is as unscientific and barbaric as anything government sciences have ever come up with.  If public schools are ineffective, why would anybody expect Dr. Fauci and government science to get it right with Covid?  They are either treacherous lunatic terrorists for a new global order, or they are dumb as hell.  Or perhaps, a mixture of both.  But putting masks on kids and ruining their lives with the bad decisions of power-hungry health officials would make bad parents out of all of us.  Kids don’t deserve this stupidity.  It’s up to all of us as adults to at least protect kids from government absurdity, starting in our schools.  And for Lakota, while you still can, you better let the school board know how you feel.  Because if left to their own devices, they will yield to the Butler County health officials and their power grabs from the CDC to put the government in charge of our health, which they have proven entirely incompetent to handle.  They weren’t effective the first time around, and now that we’ve had time to reflect on the mistakes of 2020, why would anybody fall for it a second time?  What we are up against is sheer stupidity and nothing less.

My Thoughts on Afghanistan: Facing down evil once more

Its Time to Face Down Evil

I love Jags in West Chester, Ohio, and some of my friends who love to chew on cigar smoke while contemplating the complexities of life.  I found myself at the bar enjoying the atmosphere after one of those nights dressed the way I always am in my videos, like the one shown above, enjoying a Guinness.  A receptionist had come for me to take me to my table, so we walked through the posh interior headed for that destiny when an older, very affluent couple stopped me to compliment me on my hat.  At first, I thought they were poking fun at it a bit, but I realized they were quite sincere in their compliments after a few moments.  I don’t talk about it much, but I started dressing this way for one primary reason.  Our country is under attack and has been for a while.  Now is not the time to pretend like everything is fine and dandy.  I wear the outfits I do because it helps other people feel better about what’s going on, that there is still strength and courage out in the world, which is precisely what that couple was referencing without being able to put the words to the moment.  They just knew they liked it. We’ve allowed our culture to slip away from us by playing too friendly with the world.  And in doing business all over the world, I knew something that the rest of us have forgotten because our media culture makes sure we ignore it.

The efforts at toxic masculinity and other progressive pushes were meant to unarm us physically and intellectually.  My approach is to make sure that all those enemies know that, at least with me, that classical American values are at the core of my personality.  I’m happy to project that to anybody who wants to listen, like that couple at Jags.  And they appreciated it for lots of unsaid reasons.  What they could say was that they loved my hat and my leather vest.  Of course, I said thank you.  As another perk, I never have enough pockets for all my things, so the vests serve a practice role, most of which is to conceal my carry, which I never leave home without.  But more than anything, in these times, it did help to project to others that it was alright to let the progressive insurgents know that pushback on their Woke policies was a reality that they would have to deal with.

I’ve been asked hundreds of times over the last few days what I think of the Afghanistan situation and when I explain it, I think of that couple who loved my hat and western attire at Jags.  They didn’t know why they liked my outfit so much; they just knew they did.  Enough to make a big deal about it.  But I understand why they liked it so much; they were older, maybe a little older than me, so they had at some point in their past access to the western, which were the foundations of Hollywood for most of its life.  Westerns were also the first thing that progressives have attacked in our culture, which loves them still.  Only westerns have been satirized relentlessly for the last 30 years because they project what communists call “Toxic Masculinity.” Well, what happened in Afghanistan was that the good guys went there to bring western civilization to the world’s villains, and we helped many Afghan people do just that.  Women were freed for the first time in their aggressive Muslim culture.  America was that needed sheriff that came to town and brought justice to the dens of evil who wanted to continue to function as a backwater crime pit, and we staved it back for 20 years and allowed people to evolve without those fears.  Westerns from American culture have told this story repeatedly, from just about every John Wayne movie to Clint Eastwood’s Fistfull of Dollars.  To The Magnificent Seven, and many more.  The good sheriff coming to town to instill justice and natural law were what most westerns were about. They were specific creations of American ideas and western civilization in general.  And when people see the way I dress, it’s reassuring to them.  Not so much to the youth, although they do respond positively.  They are craving protection and order in their lives.  But we have these needs deep within our culture, and we have over a hundred years of stories about these themes that we’ve created and broadcast around the world.  The bad guys know it and want it undone, which is what Afghanistan was and why it’s such a tragedy.

The mistake purposeful or by sheer accident is irrelevant.  The political left ran by a Marxist ideology, even in radical Islam, expects the bold sheriff’s merits to be replaced by consensus building through the “international community.” The Biden administration has made mention of that strategy over and over as Afghanistan fell apart.  It was a plan built into the political left through echo chambers within academia, and they have made it their hill to die on.  That all countries are equal.  America should not be that white-hatted sheriff for the rest of the world. Instead, all nations would be managed through peer pressure of being out of alignment within the international community.  In other words, the cool kids would not let Afghanistan play in the reindeer games if they fell out of line.  Well, that’s their ideology, and it sounds good in the backyards of Georgetown while grilling hot dogs and sipping on red wine, but it doesn’t work in real life.  All it has done is give the biggest aggressor a chance to pick on all the peace lovers trying to kill the world with kindness.  China has been stoking these fires in the background for their ambitions of world domination, and their next target is Taiwan.  It’s easy for Americans to see all this, at least subconsciously, because of our long history of westerns in cinema.  We were raised to see good and evil in these ways even though our academic educations have put the blinders on us to make us blind to the intentions.  But deep down inside, we know what’s going on.  The minute the good Sherrif leaves the town, the villains come out and pillage the innocent. That reality was put into sharp focus as we watched Afghans pile onto C-17s in a desperate attempt to flee Afghanistan and the Christian-hating Taliban before they were all butchered, raped, and killed by the latest villains on earth. 

Without China, there would be no Taliban; they are the unsaid provocateurs here who planned to use this defeat to shame Americans into staying out of their business when it came to Taiwan and Japan.  And while America was killing itself worrying about whether or not we were using the proper pronouns when referencing ourselves, or in feeling guilt over racism, for which America is the most diverse nation in the world, China could make their move to run the world with communism.  So as sad as Afghanistan is, even that is part of the Chinese plan, to shame America so severely with a 20-year war that sent us packing with nothing to show for it and let Afghanistan destroy itself through its civil war without American involvement.  Then China could quickly kill off the winner to take over and have the mineral rights to the north and stimulate the opium production from the region to further poison the world into compliance with everything communists desire.  That is why I love moments like what I mentioned at Jags in my town of West Chester, Ohio.  It reminds me of times past when good sheriffs had to run the bad guys out of a city like Deadwood, Dodge City, or Tombstone.  We are there again, and over a beer, cigar smoke, and the banter of bold camaraderie, we are prepping ourselves for another fight in the streets.  Afghanistan isn’t the end of the fight, but the cue to strap on the guns and face down the evil villains.  And most people, even if they aren’t gunfighters themselves, know and understand the need because at least recognizing that need runs deep in American culture.  But now, instead of watching it on TV, we will have to do it in real life.  And that is the hope that the world is desperate for.  Afghanistan is just the latest proof to what degree only America can save that world from itself.
