Looks Like its Time to Bring Back Hanging: We have a criminal government, and we must meet it in the street

Maybe its Time to Bring Back Hanging

A recurring theme of American westerns is the temptation of the domestic woman to coax a man not to meet evil in the street and right wrongs but to stay safe and keep the doors shut.  To hide in the bosom of a woman in trade for sexual security replacing mother as the overseer of what’s good in the world.  Of course, the man must do what they must and meet evil in the street and conquer it, then return home to the woman for forgiveness, which usually he gets.  The point to the stories is that women are the guardians to domestic bliss and the love of home and family, but that the threats to those wonderful things come from outside sources, and sometimes to eliminate them, the hero must go and throw all concerns for danger aside and do what has to be done.  That theme was particularly strong in Clint Eastwood’s Pale Rider from 1986.  Sure, women had the right to vote long-established. At that time, women were in the workplace sharing breadwinning activities, tricked by the government to become taxpayers serving the government rather than guardians of the house and protecting the children from the villainy of government.  But that’s a story for another time.  Presently we are faced with the trend of great evil, and it’s time to face it down in the street and figure out what to do about it.  In the Pale Rider theme, two women were tempting Clint Eastwood to stay in the house and live happily ever after with them, hoping to ignore the evils of the world from inside, a mother and her young daughter.  Of course, Eastwood would forget both and face down the bandits in glorious gunfire, doing what needed to be done despite the cries of safety from the women.  And that’s where we find ourselves in a very modern time.  We have a challenge to our order of American hopes and dreams and a real need to throw away safety, security, and domestic bliss to face down evil for all its worth and deal with it squarely.  After the crimes showed just in election fraud from 2020, I think the case for bringing back hanging as capital punishment is more than justified and is something we should have a serious conversation about.

Men and women certainly have different roles in any social order, and since westerns were produced and society has “evolved,” our opinions about things have become murky.  I would argue that all this ambiguity has been on purpose to allow criminal activity.  Like all bad guys in the world, they seldom ever sell their actions that way.  But it takes good people to see bad people for their worth, and sometimes, the good people must risk it all to do what must be done to protect the world from evil.  And to understand how to tell good from bad, it must be clear which is which.  As the social order of our times has been formed by those most hostile to tradition, it is helpful to turn to history and our culture of stories for clarity which I’ve done due to the 2020 election. I’ve spent many weeks on the road in 2021 and traveled all over the Wild West studying history.  Much of it was to finish off my manuscript to The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, a book that makes a case for many things that need to happen in the 21st century. I’ve probably seen every western ever made, but to think about the vast evil I was witnessing, I needed to go and see the places I had read about over so many years and consider the options.  And one thing that continued to come up in the many books I picked up unique to traveling in those western areas was that hanging seemed to work a lot better than the legalisms of the progressive era. 

I was in Deadwood roaming the streets as my family waited for a table to eat at a nearby restaurant as I ran across a book that turned out to be fantastic for this purpose called The Outlaws of South Dakota.  It was the kind of book you wouldn’t just buy on Amazon, it was a local flavor, and it was perfect for getting a good taste of Deadwood’s history.  I had read about so many places in Deadwood that my visit gave me a good foundation for the words on pages, and by the time my family was seated, I had an excellent place to take my research to the next level.  And it was clear from that research, no matter where I traveled, from Deadwood to Lincoln County, New Mexico, that when people would hang bad guys for simple threats and slights against innocent people, the society worked a whole lot better.  When the attempt to replace justice with lawyers and human resource departments was introduced at the start of the progressive era to stop people from shooting each other in the streets, the trend of criminals was to hide their actions behind rules nobody wanted to follow.  And evil spread like wildfire.  After banning alcohol with the 18th Amendment in 1919 and the women’s right to vote in 1921, we can see the intention of governments and the criminals who prospered from the power grabs of the progressive era.  Replacing the woman as the guardian of domestic bliss was the first step, and robbing a man of something to fight for was the second.  The gunfighters in the streets were pushed deep into history, the alcohol slugging loner ignoring the women and meeting a bad guy in the street for frontier justice was a thing of the past, and what the government instead gave us were comb-over lawyers that interfered with justice giving rise to “organized crime” as we would come to know it.

These were the days of Bonnie and Clyde and Al Capone, who would take the government overreach and profit from the chaos.  People no longer stood up to evil or even their wives for the right to justice.  Now preserving justice was not even a domestic problem; everyone hid in their homes and called the government to do the work.  It’s out of this chaos that Saul Alinsky learned from Al Capone himself how to make the Democrat Party into a government-sponsored organized crime syndicate, which is where we find ourselves today.  It seems like a long time, but the election fraud that we saw in 2020 was just the result of 100 years of progressive erosion of justice.  There was no longer a woman to turn away from maintaining domestic bliss and family love to risk it all to face down evil.  Now evil was everywhere, and nobody could see it because nobody was home even to fend it off.  Everyone worked for the government to be good taxpayers to fund a monster government that criminals essentially ran.

We were supposed to maintain that government by elected representatives, but we learned in 2020 that the criminals were running the show, and nobody was meeting them in the streets to stop them.  They didn’t respect our laws, and they certainly didn’t appreciate any of us.  While traveling and reading this year, it became clear that the only way to stop that lack of respect is to get back to the days of what worked and what didn’t.  What didn’t work was putting safety first and listening to what the government wanted to do about justice.  What did work was that people at the front of justice, alone in faraway places like Deadwood, South Dakota, often hung bad people at the point of a crime, where it happened quickly.  And things were much better off than they are now.  So perhaps we should be thinking this way again.  Because what is going on now just isn’t working, and we need it to.  We have a criminal government, and we need to meet it in the street and deal with it accordingly.  But to deal with evil, first, we need to see it.

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.

Vote Todd Minniear for Liberty Township Trustee: Getting to know the candidates in Liberty and West Chester Townships.

Vote for Todd Minniear for Liberty Township Trustee

Like I did for the school board candidates at Lakota for the 2021 election, I have clips of the various candidates to help make decisions.  Like the school board candidates, I support some and recommend changing some of the incumbents in Liberty Township.  These clips deal with trustee candidates in Liberty Township and West Chester, two of the most affluent and great places to live in the United States.  And they are examples of just how great a small government is when you have just three trustees managing things.  So, of course, for this next election, the goal is to keep the government small, effective, and accountable.  I say all that because we do have some significant government types who are running.  Trent Emeneker calls himself a fiscal conservative but had a “meet and greet” at Liberty Center with a known Democrat.  You can see by the video clips that he’s not worth a vote so that I won’t waste much time on him.  In West Chester, the choice is clear.  Mark Welch is a personal friend of mine not because he’s a politician, but because over time, and common ways of looking at things, it just evolved that way. He’s many reasons West Chester has been so successful, and we certainly want to keep things that way.  There are two seats open, so the second should be Lee Wong.  Lee and I have not gotten along over the years, but in this case, he’s working well with Mark and Ann Becker as a trustee, and we want to keep that going.  So the trustee race in West Chester is easy.

However, Liberty Township is more complex; it’s far more complicated.  I live in Liberty Township.  I have lived in Liberty Township for about 45 years of my life.  I spent nearly a decade living in other places worldwide, but my wife and I returned to Liberty Township after the 1990s and loved it very much.  Yet, I have paid a lot more attention to West Chester than Liberty for a good reason.  In West Chester, I was involved in the Tea Party there; Ann Becker was the president of the Cincinnati Tea Party, a pretty big position.  George Lang, a senator now, was a trustee who was getting voted against during every meeting.  We worked hard to put Mark Welch in the second spot to help George get the votes he needed, and it worked very well.  And we went to work to fill the West Chester trustees with all those Tea Party types of candidates.  History will show how smart that was.

Tea Party people are not crazy radicals.  They are fiscal conservatives, small government-minded, and rooted in American traditions.  So I enjoyed the experiment in a small government that was going on in West Chester that has produced magnificent results.  Because of the population density of West Chester, there have been lots of Democrats who have tried to push for a city designation.  The latest is Trent Emeneker.  They want to be a city because it creates more jobs for the government, which drives up costs, bureaucracy, and the overall feel of the community.  Between those three names, George Lang, Mark Welch, and Ann Becker, West Chester has managed to stay lean and sharp, making for a wonderful place to live and work.  Better than just about any other place in the country. 

In Liberty Township, there have always been these Agenda 21 Comprehensive Plans that liberals write and conservative trustees have then followed which has been highly unsatisfying for a guy like me, a long term resident who knows what Liberty Township was like before all the tag-alongs moved in from other places and brought all their big government ideas with them.  And now there is the Agenda 2030 plan that the United Nations has put out, and if you read it and also read the 2020 Comprehensive Plan for Liberty Township, you’ll see that the same person might have as well written them.  Of course, they weren’t, but the ideas are the same.  This is what you get when you hire many kids trained in good, liberal colleges who have been taught that the United Nations would rule the world and that any interpretation of sustainable development must come from those socialists and communists on the world stage.  When any trustees commission a plan like the Comprehensive Plan for 2020 or any previous revisions, you essentially get a bunch of liberals who decide what your community will look like.  I can say that George Lang had quite a challenge when he pushed back against this trend in West Chester.  I know some of the personal stories, and thank goodness George did push back in constructive ways.  But in Liberty Township, even though the trustees are usually what everyone considers “rock-ribbed Republicans,” they get pulled into the Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 game of serving the United Nations instead of the real history of Liberty Township and the reasons people moved to the area, to begin with.

Every time I have to navigate one of the many dumb roundabouts in Liberty Township, it reminds me what suckers our local government has been toward this United Nations strategy.  I know all of them and have over the years.  They consider themselves conservatives and don’t think of the United Nations game.  Only people who do some research into the matter would know the strategy of how the United Nations embedded itself into all local zoning to lay the groundwork for a future of sidewalks, roundabouts, electric energy, and an eventual carless society.  It was a plan from the United Nations that sought to turn capitalism on its head to implement its objectives. They got away with it because people generally don’t look for the United Nations fingerprints on these kinds of Comprehensive Plans that the trustees follow in their decision-making processes.  Because of this adherence to a United Nations comprehensive plan, I have not been interested in Liberty Township politics at the same level as West Chester.  The frustration with them is just too much a pain in the ass.  They are good people; I like my trustees, two running for November, Tom Ferrall and Buck Rumpke.  But they are big government guys who have philosophies that lean towards development and not personal freedom.  For instance, many local developers want to know that someone is following some comprehensive plan to understand what property to buy and how to invest in the future.  But, to make a good community, there are many more factors to consider, and in Liberty Township, they often don’t come to light. 

To make matters worse, one outstanding trustee that Liberty Township had was David Kern, who recently died.  He was a Tea Party guy, and an influential Republican before the world fell into a tailspin.  But he was old when I was a little kid in Liberty Township, and my brother used to play with their kid at their nursery off Millikan Road.  Once David Kern was no longer a trustee, the government of Liberty Township moved much more toward the United Nations than the personal liberty and sovereignty of the United States.  David used to like to poke sticks in these kinds of comprehensive plans.  He might eventually vote on them, but he at least would argue the matter to see how strong they were.  It was a good balance to have someone like David Kern on the Liberty Township Trustees for many years.  Yet since his death, a guy like him has been missed. 

So when it comes to this election, I was pretty bored with it until I met Todd Minniear at the West Chester Tea Party forum recorded in these videos.  I like Buck Rumpke as a candidate and Republican, but he’s coming over from zoning. As I said, most zoning people have been saturated over the years through their educations with this massive United Nations plot to “Make Europe Great Again.” I have written voluminously that one of the great insecurities of America is the lack of history and culture that we have as a young country, compared to Europe.  So we assume that Europe, the mother country, is the way to emulate, and many of the Liberty Township residents have evolved into thinking the same way.  A wine purchased from Europe has a much higher value than a wine purchased from a vineyard by the Rumpke landfill.  They may be just as good, but it’s the stigma that people care about.  When I hear Buck talk, it’s evident that he’s been saturated with this global way of thinking. He’s a small-town guy who worked hard all his life at the family garbage business, and he wants to show how cultured he is by adopting all these woke, globalists’ points of view. He’s a super nice guy, but he thinks wrong about the big things.  And I would put Tom Ferrall into that same category.  Big government guy who wants to show how cultured he is by supporting all these dumb roundabouts and other European features. I’ll end up voting for one or the other, but my first pick will undoubtedly be Todd Minniear in a two-seat race. 

So Todd and I have met each other on several occasions.  I didn’t know it at the time, but Todd was on the front line protesting against what DeWine was doing during the Covid lockdowns. He’s smart, and he gets it. He’s a Tea Party type which excites me because of the success that we have seen in West Chester.  To have a guy like Todd in Liberty Township might help take things in a more successful direction.  Todd Minniear challenged the DeWine administration in court and won over the Covid lockdowns, and he is extremely intelligent.  Talking to him reminded me of David Kern.  What an excellent opportunity to get a great trustee onto the Liberty board.  People like Todd Minniear do not come along often.  Clearly, by watching the videos included here, you can see my two picks by how well they spoke.   Todd was by far the most articulate of the evening, and he’s willing to do that extra work that is often necessary.  When we talk about “liberty” in Liberty Township, we are not talking about blind compliance to some United Nations Comprehensive Plan or other dumb rules that hold us back.  Sometimes we need people we put into such positions to push back against the rules because the people making the rules may not have our best interests in mind.  That is the case with the United Nations.  They want Liberty Township to look like Europe, not America, and if you follow their ideas, that’s exactly what we’ll get.  Todd has a history of challenging the rules, which is precisely what we need in Liberty Township.

After the forum, I spoke to Todd a bit, along with other very smart people in the room, and had questions for the bright young mind.  I noticed that Todd had the great book that I value quite a lot, The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates.  That is a book that describes the moral obligation of leadership lower in the pecking order of life to push back against authoritarian rule.  The book proposes several instances where it is the moral obligation to lash back at a higher authority for corrupt regulations and edicts.  For example, in this case, we should have had more trustees, state reps, and senators who openly fought the unconstitutional vaccine mandate.  For Joe Biden to issue an executive order demanding that all federal employees take medicine or lose their jobs, we needed more local officials to reject the premise.  Instead, most everyone has caved from lawyers to human resource departments for fear of drawing attention to themselves.  When Governor DeWine issued the mask mandates of last year, Butler County’s Sheriff Jones was one of the first in the country to say no, we’re not going to do that.  We need many more politicians in prominent positions who will behave this way when pressed, and Buck Rumpke and Tom Farrell are certainly not those guys.  They will be the first to put on the mask and follow the rules, like good Republicans who care more about adherence to the law than whether the laws are correct and just.  Todd Minniear cares about what’s truly right or wrong, and for me that sets him into a stratosphere all his own. He’s a lot better than the other two guys, and I will be voting for him. 

Like most of them, this election season proposes good things for those with the guts to say yes to them.  It takes courage to try something different, but sometimes it takes courage to stick to what’s working.  In West Chester, it takes guts to keep things solid as they have been.   To resist the tide of corruption that wants to open the door to a bigger government, to loot off the efforts of what made West Chester great, to begin with.  Yet, in Liberty Township, it would take guts to vote for Todd Minniear and take a great community and make it noticeably better.  Liberty Township has enjoyed a cascade effect from West Chester for years.  But now, there is an opportunity to make Liberty Township its unique kind of good truly.  That won’t happen with Buck Rumpke or Tom Farrell by themselves.  It would take a truly smart intellect and a person willing to do the extra work in Todd Minniear to pull it off, which is a fascinating prospect.

We Love an Angry Trump: The United Nations provoking a divorce in America

We Love an Angry Trump, because we are Angry

It’s pretty clear now what’s been happening.  Not that we didn’t already know, but our fights have been localized on purpose so that we don’t see the big picture. At the same time, we are looking at mask mandates and vaccine mandates.  The Texas abortion bill.  The collapsing economy.  Afghanistan.  Racism.  CRT. All these topics are created diversions of tragedy so that you don’t see the deals we have been signed up for that went against us all.  We are not supposed to know that we are at war with China.  And that the United Nations is working hard to apply Cloward and Piven tactics to collapse the American way of life so that The Great Reset will bring down life in the United States so, through wealth redistribution, other countries can be equalized under control by the United Nations.

We have been told that we are going to defund the police.  We are letting criminals out of jail so they can undo our society from within.  We are putting good people in prison; the FBI is attacking mothers protesting corrupt school boards.  It’s all been an attack, and it is scary because we didn’t want to be at war.  We just wanted to live our lives.  Yet, it’s not all bad.  I would offer that we are all better off now knowing what we do because we can take action against it.  For a long time, the situation in America has been like a divorce that was about to happen, but nobody wanted to talk about it.  But one day, we had that complicated conversation with our spouse at the dinner table. “Are you cheating on me?” Or, to people like Mitch McConnell and the senate that just increased the debt ceiling for cornered Democrats, “are you selling us out to the United Nations and the globalist plan that has been cooking for many decades?”

Did you notice that even with the massive amounts of other news to talk about, the media was pushing the story of how The United Nations named The Weekend musical group the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Food Program to Stop Hunger Worldwide?  Now, remember what I have said about the United Nations.  They are certainly chess players in this overtaking the United States and the sell-outs of Americans who have empowered them to believe they can rule the world; they are made up of socialists and communists.  They are not capitalist-driven American lovers, so when they talk about helping the poor, they don’t intend to fix what causes people to be poor; they mean to take from America and give to those who don’t have much, without dealing with why they were poor in the first place.  The announcement was something that might have previously been a big New York story or something that would come out of The Hollywood Reporter.  But this was a global endeavor claiming American assets as their preparing everyone for the eventual change state.  It’s why people like Mitch McConnell and Rob Portman don’t care if they betray you because they believe that the next phase of America is under the United Nations.  When Trump had and continues to talk about America First, this is why they hate him and any supporters who believe the same thing.  Because in their minds, they have already had that divorce, and they are just waiting out the clock.  Or so they hope. 

I keep talking about the Stephanie Grisham book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now, because I learned a lot from it that I didn’t know.  Usually, I learn only 10% with each new book read, but that one had maybe 30% new stuff that I didn’t know.  So it was a real treasure for me.  Not that it was a good book, but it was like reading the diary of someone close to the Trump White House from the perspective of a globalist.   As a media member and from a media perspective, it was fascinating to see how outraged Stephanie was about the aggressive management style of the Trumps and the anger of the supporters.  It was quite a mystery to her, as it continues to be among others in the media who thought long ago that Trump could be destroyed and that populism would be crushed and all the plans for the great divorce would occur painlessly.  The kids would live with dad in the United Nations while the ex-wife named Lady Liberty would barely rub two sticks together to get a can of soup in America.  That was the plan until the dad saw how enraged Lady Liberty was, and things went sideways.  And that is the real story here, not to lose focus on what Dr. Fauci did with the Wuhan lab to unleash Covid to cheat in elections.  What did he know, and when did he know it?  Everything else is a diversion.  And yes, we have a right to be angry. We’ve been betrayed.  We were cheated on.  We have been let down.   And ultimately, that is why we felt it was OK to have a president who would fight back, who had a vicious temper.  We wanted a fighter in the White House who would not sell us all out to global forces.  And then they tried to take that away from us and expected compliance.  They were so wrong.

This week, you might have noticed another story about the United Nations’ control of the world with the 15% minimum corporate tax rate, which Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was a part of along with The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.  The goal is to get rid of tax havens to collect tax money to run this new global bureaucracy.  Joe Biden was right there in agreement quickly.  That was because this was all part of the plan when they cheated the election in 2020 and involved themselves in fraud.  They had to get rid of Trump and the America First policy; otherwise, none of these things they are doing now, like collapsing America’s economy so that we can be restructured under the United Nations, could occur.  By the time we caught on to the fraud and found out who was involved, the world would be switched over to a World Court that wouldn’t care about any American laws that were broken.  They are playing for keeps. 

Yet, of course, we answered all this by putting Trump in office.  We wanted to fight back.  We wanted someone who would foil their plans, so yes, the support for Trump only got stronger.  This was not part of their ill-conceived plan.  They didn’t expect so much resistance from Americans.  They thought that after Covid, they’d have us all in the bag.  They didn’t believe Trump would stick around and still be a political factor.  They thought they could steer the GOP toward someone more reasonable, such as Nikki Haley, and that Democrats would stay in power.  These investigations into election fraud and the roots of the bioweapon Covid-19 were not supposed to happen.  Google, Facebook, and Twitter were supposed to be able to contain those investigations.  But instead, the MAGA movement has created news networks such as Warroom and social media platforms like Gettr.  And the world is marching toward populism and looking for America to lead them toward independence.  That has interrupted the divorce proceedings and left the dad, not in such an excellent position to run off with another sovereignty and take the kids with him. Now it’s looking like the kids will stay with mom and that dad has been caught cheating and will lose things that are very valuable in the process.  Yes, we have a right to be angry.  We support Trump and expect him to be angry.  Because it was wrongs done to us that provoked that anger, and now it’s time to pay.

A Review of ‘I’ll Take Your Questions Now’: It’s all about ‘The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates’

The Truth about Trump’s Success

To understand why I love Stephanie Grisham’s new book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now; you’d have to understand the contents of the excellent book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates or even why I get very excited about Thanksgiving and the jail cell of one of the founders of the Mayflower journey in Canterbury, England.  Or why I get excited about Salisbury, England, where one of the four Magna Cartas currently resides.  Humans have been on a long trek for personal freedom and liberty. When we elected Donald Trump, it was essentially a declaration of independence against the global forces trying to sucker the United States into the grand scheme of globalism, for which most in the Beltway had no idea was even happening. Stephanie’s book indeed revealed that, in all its glorious detail.  Even working so close to the Trump family, Stephanie never figured out what happened or why.  And the media she had such a tight relationship with never understood either.  Without knowing it, their lives were prepared for them to think a certain way about things, which essentially was just another attempt by global forces to dominate those lesser magistrates of politics from top to bottom. Henry the 8th burned people at the stake or Henry the II killed the great Thomas Becket at the Canterbury Cathedral to rule us all with the same tyranny. I’ve stood in that spot and rubbed the ground where his blood was spilled for going against Henry the 8th and the power grabs between the church and state.  I have a profound hatred of tyranny in all forms, and I’ve been researching it in person around the world.  I appreciate The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates not just in principle but in the courage of a long line of patriots in forming them.  And when you wonder why the rest of the world doesn’t get it, you get a tell-all book like Stephanie Grisham’s, which reminds you of the real problems. 

I came out of reading I’ll Take Your Questions Now feeling very sorry for Stephanie Grisham.  Through the Trumps, she had opportunities she would never have received under more conventional White House occupants.  President Trump is a big personality who figures he can overcome anything.  He takes chances on people others wouldn’t, and that is undoubtedly the story of Stephanie Grisham, who would become the Press Secretary of both the President and First Lady in the White House during their term in office.  I understand Trump’s management style.  Sometimes you take big chances on people, and you find that diamond in the rough that turns out to be spectacular.  They just needed a leader to give them a chance to shine.  But often, probably 75% of the time, you get a dud that burns out, and that is what happened to Stephanie by the end of the Trump White House.  Covid quarantining, conventional thinking on her part, and her boyfriend’s nasty break-up, who also worked in the White House, was too much for her, and she broke.  Competitive relationships with co-workers didn’t help, and she didn’t have it in her.  Because she worked for the Trumps closely, after the White House, the world has not been kind to Stephanie, so she wrote a tell-all book detailing intimate secrets about the Trumps hoping to project her into a new life with a fresh start.  She admits that she’s a kind of liberal that identifies more as a John McCain Republican than a Donald Trump.  And by the end of her time with Trump, that became more obvious for her.  She didn’t have the stomach for all the unconventional thinking, and she fell from grace and wrote about it as if she were writing a diary that she’d share with the world.  In that way, it’s a fascinating book. 

I don’t typically talk about The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates. Still, as I was reading Stephanie’s book, I was involved in several engagements that brought it all together for me.  First was legal advice regarding the illegitimate Joe Biden’s executive order on all federal contractors.  This is just the kind of overreach warned about in that great book based on that long trajectory of freedom that I am obsessed with.  Then I was at a candidate forum with several people running for Trustee in townships I’m concerned with. I noticed that my friends, Mark Welch and Todd Minniear, discussed the book as part of the philosophical debate regarding Covid protocols and many recent instances of government overreach.  Todd brought his copy of the book to the meeting, which impressed me.  These were a couple of guys running for local office who understood the job of office pushback in politics to protect the interests of the people who voted them into power.  Stephanie never understood because she was such a conventional and educated thinker what role Trump played along those same lines.  The assumption is that the President of the United States is in the most powerful position in the world.  But to the Davos crowd, the United Nations people genuinely want to rule the world as a conglomerate of socialists from the Old World.  And the aggression of China who plans to follow Marxism to global domination, the United States is just another country.  They don’t care about our laws, our way of life, or what happens to us in the future. They’d love to not compete with us, so when it comes to the President of the United States, they want to view us as a lesser magistrate.  In that role, which voters for Trump have an innate understanding along the lines of the trajectory of freedom, they put Trump in power to resist those forces.  Even as close as she was to all the significant events, Stephanie never saw the big picture.  She only ever saw how the media might interpret those events, so she set to work to steer the Trumps this way and that for the benefit of the press.  Never for the overall objective of what was suitable for our country. 

I think it helped that Stephanie felt like a woman scorned fresh from a divorce of the Trumps, complaining as an ex-wife would about everything they hate about someone they once loved.  The rejection of that love drove out of her a truth we may never have seen otherwise.  But what she thought were faults, where Trump didn’t listen to other people, where the President would refer to himself as a genius, in the scheme of what it took to resist the imposition as a lessor magistrate from global forces, Trump was perfect and highly successful.  But even more so, Melania Trump proved that she was more than just a pretty face.  She was a keen and influential voice in the White House who truly loved class and freedom in ways nobody understood.  As I said in the video above, I’ve met the Trumps on a few occasions.  Occasionally when I get around celebrities, I’m not the type who asks for a picture, but they’ll ask if I want one, so I’ll take one.  But I don’t seek them out because I like to put people at ease under those conditions. I’ve seen the Trumps up close, and I thought about those meetings while reading Stephanie’s book, and many things made more sense to me for the positive.  We still need the Trumps, and we needed the Trumps when we had them.  And I’m glad Stephanie told her story, even if it was a little crazy at times talking about old boyfriends and dogs.  But the key to the Trumps and this period of time went unidentified.  Even those who were closest to the President and First Lady had no idea why they were so important and the key to the future of the freedom movement, which goes back thousands of years and is only climaxing in our present time against a shit shot from midcourt with no time on the clock for tyranny to rule again.

Jennifer Edwards Baker Attacks Butler County Republicans: The keyboard assassins of Fox 19 in Cincinnati

How Media Tampers with Elections

Of course all 7 Butler County judges recused themselves from the bologna case in Ohio against the great auditor Roger Reynolds and two other elected officials in the heat of the political season. One thing that I can’t stand is a bully, especially when it comes to media.  It’s pretty clear now why so many in the media hate that many people elected Donald Trump for president.  They get it.  We see it in Joe Biden; a puppet administration ran essentially by media types who project their radical progressive agenda onto a caricature in the White House.  They have been doing it for years, but if we had not elected Trump to disrupt that process, we might never have seen it as clear as we do now.  That much was evident in Stephanie Grisham’s new book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now, just released.  Even though that book was intended to be a hit piece against the Trump family, as a whole, and to show how reckless and dangerous President Trump was, what it revealed was just how much the media wants to be in power and to run politics as unelected radicals who use the power of persuasion from the comfort of a nice, comfy desk to rule the world.  I hate it so much that is the primary reason I run this blog, The Gunfighter’s Guide, and have done so for over ten years and to millions of readers.  I do it to counter all the activism that occurs in the media world. A fine example of just what I’m talking about happened to several politicians in my home township of Liberty in Butler County, Ohio, which involves a lawsuit against Roger Reynolds, and two trustee candidates, Buck Rumpke and incumbent Tom Ferrell. 

Essentially, the lawsuit recently filed by a property owner over a proposed senior type center development project wants more money for their land.  They allege that Roger Reynolds was using politics to hold down the property’s price and keep other buyers away from the purchase process.  All the members of the lawsuit are alleged to be involved in some way or another.  Now on the surface, that sounds pretty nefarious.  But as you dig into the story a bit, you find out that most of the participants know each other from childhood. It affects families, elderly people, and cancer diagnosis with lots of emotion attached.  By the time the smoke clears, there will be hard feelings, there will be resolutions, and there will be a path forward that adults should be able to resolve on their own.  But then comes the media where Jennifer Edwards Baker from Fox 19 in Cincinnati inserted herself into the story as a political activist to take what is a pretty standard property dispute and turned it into a corruption scandal with the headline titled “Corruption-related allegations in lawsuit Against Butler County auditor, Liberty trustee. 

I’ve known Roger Reynolds for a long time, many, many years, and he’s always been a good guy.  Does he have some little bit of tyrant in him who would use zoning laws to squeeze a property owner to sell the property to only him and for half the price of its worth?  I would never think so based on what I know of Roger.  But then again, these people have known each other all their lives.  Can you know everything about somebody in every circumstance?  Of course not, so anything is possible.  The problem with the Channel 19 hit piece is the timing.  With the lawsuit filed at the end of September 2021 and Jennifer Edwards Baker putting quite a lot of effort into her article on it plastering the pictures of Roger and Ferrell on the cover rather dramatically, it doesn’t take much deduction to see that the effort is political and not some casual reporting of a legal situation.  Roger, Ferrell, and Buck Rumpke are all big names in the Butler County GOP, and I happen to know that Jennifer is not fond of Republicans. I’ve had to get after her and reporters at Channel 5 before using their media outlets to incite riotous conditions during 2020 as they were trying to lure Black Lives Matters rioters into West Chester to antagonize suburbanites into the fear of big city manipulations.

If Jennifer wanted to do a fair story on corruption, I could point her to dozens and dozens of similar stories all over Cincinnati.  The allegations over this Butler County land deal are common in properties where millions of dollars are involved, and generations of families are a part of the story.  There are many Democrats that are involved in these kinds of scandals.  Heck, we’ve seen a lot of scandals on the national stage, such as the DOJ being weaponized by the Biden administration to go after parents questioning their school boards over critical race theory.  There are such stories right now going on in Lakota. But we have to ask, “where’s Jennifer on those stories? Paging Jennifer Edwards Baker. Paging the Fox 19 News hyphenated activist looking for bottom feeder stories.” There are plenty of stories about corruption that Jennifer could have picked.  But this one targets Republicans right before a big election and pastes the good name that took a lifetime to build by Roger Reynolds all over the cover.  Of course, typically, what happens when a lawsuit is named forces the defenders to lay low and limit their speech to not corrupt their case.  By the time that all the dust settles and the case is over with everyone shaking hands in the end, the damage will already have been done.  When these Republicans should be out campaigning for their official positions, they have to answer corruption questions based on allocations.  Allegations can be made about anything.  Proving them is much harder to do and often falls short in the end. 

People asked me what I thought of the article by Jennifer Edwards Baker, and my reply was that it was typical Channel 19 activism.  A lazy reporter was looking to stir up gossip and trouble for Republicans.  If she cared about corruption, she’d have plenty of stories around Cincinnati to do them on, but she picked on prominent Republicans in Butler County for other reasons.  Allegations are not fact, and trying to play on the emotions of an 87-year-old man who wants to sell his land is not a story.  It’s bait to impede the election process of known and solid Republicans. I’m sure everyone involved in the lawsuit will declare that the timing was not a factor.  But there are a lot of months in a year.  Why now?  And Jennifer should have known better.  She stuck herself and Channel 19 into the story as political activism and nothing more. It’s a way to attempt to tarnish the reputation of Butler County as a whole by going after one of its best politicians and most respected.  It reminds me of the FBI case in going after the Speaker of the House over the FirstEnergy deal in Columbus.  Radical progressives went after an entire energy industry to force FirstEnergy to seek protection.  The FBI calls it bribery. I’d call it the survival of a company trying not to be shut down from political activism by the Obama administration’s energy policies.  The goal of the FBI investigation was to harm the Republican stronghold in the Ohio House.  It’s just another form of election tampering by Democrats, and Jennifer Edwards Baker is essentially doing the same thing in Butler County, Ohio.  During an election season, whenever a reporter puts “corruption” in their lead, they try to steer opinions negatively.  If it’s a conviction, that’s another matter, but when it’s just allegations, its activism, which most mainstream media has become.  They want to rule the world, not as officeholders, but as keyboard terrorists and assassins who operate in the shadows.

Vote No by Saying Yes: How Great Issac Adi and Darbi Boddy are for Lakota

Issac Adi and Darbi Boddy for Lakota School Board

I could tell you many stories about politics that are dire and would make you want to climb under a rock and never get involved again.  But sometimes, some stories are fantastic, and that is the case with the two endorsed Lakota school board candidates, Issac Adi and Darbi Boddy, who are running to replace incumbent Democrats in November of 2021.  Every event I have been to with these two has been good; a few examples are shown below.  The video might be a little rough, but it’s what they say that matters.  Darbi and Issac work well together and are as unselfish as I’ve ever seen in politics, in any position. I’ve said from the beginning that I supported four candidates for the school board, but in this race this year, the Republican endorsement is what matters.  In the past, liberals have infected the school board, so critical race theory and transexual policies became part of the dominant conversation. They have managed to hide their intentions by calling the school board “nonpartisan.” Well, we know that nothing in politics is “nonpartisan,” especially the Lakota school board.  But when this idea of supporting school board members for Lakota came up, I never thought that two of them who would win the endorsement would like each other so well. That’s when the “can you imagines” started coming to my mind, where the school board represented the conservatives of Butler County, Ohio truly, and that they worked well together.  It’s one thing to have conservative votes on the board to manage things the way voters expect, but that they would perform functional management is a bonus that didn’t seem possible. 

Vote for Darbi Boddy

For instance, Issac Adi went door to door in my precinct, letting people know who he was and when to vote for him.  My wife noticed him in our neighborhood, and they struck up a conversation at the end of my driveway.  Issac recognized her immediately, which I thought was remarkable considering the number of people he has met over several months, including big names like Jim Jordan.  I would imagine his head is spinning with all the people he’s had to shake hands with, so it did impress me that he remembered my wife.  That is one thing about Issac Adi; he is one of the most sincere people I’ve ever met in politics.  He truly cares and is a good person.  So he remembers people and cares about them long after the handshake.  Of course, he wanted to know where I was which my wife told him I was babysitting my grandkids inside the house.  So he came up to see me and talk for a bit. 

After talking and catching up, I noticed that Issac wore Darbi’s campaign sticker on his shirt.  He was doing the hard work of going door to door on a pretty hot day, full of enthusiasm after talking to many hundreds of people personally, and he was promoting Darbi along the way.  Now I know that they are both endorsed and are part of the same team.  But the way the vote occurs, they very much have to run individually.   The top vote-getters are the ones who win in these kinds of elections, and it’s always hard to beat an incumbent.  The union vote and latte-sipping liberals always show up on election night, making it hard for conservatives to get a lot of votes.  But here was Issac promoting Darbi just as much as he was promoting himself.  And as I understand it, Darbi has been doing the same.  She was out promoting her and Issac as a team, not just individual candidates.  For any election, that is a pretty unique concept that doesn’t have a lot of historical precedents. 

Adding their votes to that of the current Lynda O’Conner would be a game-changer at Lakota.  I have been to other events where I have seen the three of them talking, and the chemistry is just there.  You can see it from a long way off. I’ve been dealing with school board issues in many districts around Ohio for twenty years, and I have never seen such a good combo.  Seeing Issac that day took some of my natural cynicism toward politics into a place it had never been before.  It seemed possible that at Lakota, something good had a chance to happen.  They are both so much better than the other alternatives, and if people had an opportunity to see that for themselves, these two could get elected.   There are still very significant obstacles, but as hard as they have worked throughout September and into October, it seemed like more than a fantasy and more of an eventual reality.  Usually, when I think of the Lakota school board, I typically think of severe dysfunction and people who do not know what they are doing with the money.  But here were genuinely competent and hard-working people who actually liked each other, at least as much as I’ve ever seen in politics, and there was a chance for great things to happen at Lakota for the first time in forever. 

Vote for Issac Adi for Lakota School Board

Issac had to eventually leave and return to the campaign trail from my house, but it took a while.  I enjoyed his company so much that it took us a long time to say goodbye that day.  I can say that I have been talking actively with many of the old No Lakota Levy people preparing ourselves for levy fights in the years to come.  The current school board has been trying to find the time to put one up for a vote to satisfy the out-of-control spending the teacher’s union expects.  This was an election year. Otherwise, the current board would have proposed a tax increase this year.  Likely, they’ll wait until next year now that they’ve agreed to give all those teachers sitting home on Covid excuses a raise that they’ll have to pay for next year.  But a levy fight is so damaging.  It’s much better to support a new school board that would manage the money that we already give them, which is a massive 200 million-plus budget.  If you can’t teach 17,000 kids on that, you have problems.  But the school board has never listened. Instead, they have attacked businesses for more money, like trolls always looking for a shakedown of tax revenue to pay for their reckless and infinite spending ultimately. Lakota’s school board has been deficit spending for their entire existence; no matter how much money we’ve given them, they never find a way not to spend more than they take in.  When they did have a surplus for a bit because of declining enrollment, they couldn’t wait to waste it on something new.  With this prospect of an actual conservative school board to replace the majority of liberals, great things can happen.  Issac and Darbi have done the work to get people to know who they are.  Now it will be up to the voters.  For the first time in many of their lifetimes, they have a great choice as the Lakota school district residents.  They can vote for the same old tax and spend liberals that have screwed up so much at Lakota.  Or, they can vote for Issac Adi and Darbi Boddy, who enjoy each other, work hard, and care to give the board a conservative majority for the first time.  If voters don’t vote for them, then when the tax increases come, people won’t be able to complain about it because they had a chance to say no to those tax increases by saying yes to Darbi Boddy and Issac Adi.

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.

Progressives Think Destroying Anglo Saxons will Save the World: They are of course wrong, dumb, and out of their minds

Anglo Saxons are Not The Answer

I suppose the positive thing about the chaos of 2021 where an extended planned communist plot infiltrated into the American government, unleashed all their schemes in an all-out revolution against capitalism is that we can now discuss the matter without a banner of conspiracy theory.  Being able to talk openly about these things is incredibly liberating.  I always have, but now the fundamental definitions for something are more evident to others who previously weren’t inclined.  And I can say this with certainty: the communists’ plan for America will fail because they don’t understand what they are doing or why they are doing it.  Academia is simply using the playbook of several communist insurgents from the past. Still, they never dealt with the root cause of communism and capitalism or understood why people did what they did with them.  Instead, historically, communism was created to break up the class system of Europe, which had been mired in royalty and church politics for centuries.  Communism was meant to bring those institutions down from the poor and lazy mind of Karl Marx.  Meanwhile, while Marx was selling his communist ideas to the sorry lots of people in Europe who never in their lives had ever tasted a hint of freedom from government and religion, in America, the gunfighters were paving the way West in an expansion effort that gave birth to a new nation.  And it was there that capitalism showed its true potential away from the jealous minds of the tyrannical dictators of the world’s economies. 

The fatal flaw of all communists and socialists, which was revealed in a 2015 Joe Biden discussion about open border policies which he is now pushing as planned, is that the world intends to drown out the Anglo Saxon in the world, especially in America because it is believed that capitalism is their creation and that by destroying the Anglo, that capitalism will die.  So the purpose of open borders wherever they occur is to shift people from communist countries and socialist places into areas controlled by traditional Anglo Saxons and smother capitalism wherever it was born and practiced.  And that, in essence, is what all the progressive insurgents think they are doing in America with open borders.  What is amazing about this belief is that highly educated people with double Masters’ and even Doctorates will swear by this strategy.  I mean, who could blame them, they were taught all their lives that these are the value systems of society, so of course, that was the key to the future.   Well, I’m here to say that everyone who thinks such things, which is millions and millions and millions of people, are all wrong.  The Anglo Saxon is just a consumer of capitalism.  Capitalism exists whether or not Anglo Saxons exist.  In truth, if there were no “white” people in America, America would still live, and capitalism would still be the dominant means of building economies.  Communism will never last or flourish, even if they achieve their goal of only having communism as a choice. Here’s why.

In my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, I tell the story of freedom starting with Egypt and the Indus Valley in India and evolving to the plains of the Wild West, where shootouts with bad guys led to the greatest nation the world has ever known.  And along that story comes a critical juncture where the real Pirates of the Caribbean created the first democracies ever made.  On a pirate ship, English people fought with freed slaves and Spanish adventurers.  They had Frenchmen on their vessels, they empowered women, they all worked together for the first time toward the common goal of robbing shipping vessels of institutional countries, and it was there that a government of freedom was born.  Without pirates, there never would have been a Revolution for America, nor would America have ever become a country.  Being Anglo Saxon had nothing to do with it; instead, it took rebels from Anglo Saxon culture to recognize the world’s problems and offer their solution, empowering all individuals of all colors and sexes. 

I know this topic well; I associate with many hundreds of people every week from all over the world.  And you know what, many of them are more American than the people I know from Appalachian culture.  Every time I hear a liberal yacking on about racism, and white power, they indicate that they have no idea what makes America Great or what fuels capitalism in general.  They are simply reciting what they were taught in their liberal colleges and never question whether or not those things were correct.  Well, I can say that every bit of what they learned was wrong, and they often spend the rest of their lives trying to justify their ignorance by ignoring the facts.  People will not go back into the authoritarian bottle that we all escaped from in Europe and Asia.  People fled to America to get away from where they were, and for a reason.  And I would propose that the great conflict of ideas that we see today is that collision happening simply because the world has shrunk to the point where the inevitable conflict was bound to occur.  From my experience, I would say that many immigrants coming from other places to America want what America has. If they must adopt capitalism to get there, they’ll assume it in a second.  Capitalism was invented to allow individuals, not governments or races of people, to thrive.  That may have been Karl Marx’s belief that capitalism in Europe only separated class structure.  But in America, the class was not a consideration.  If you could make money, you could have anything, and that freedom fueled the power of the greatest country ever to evolve out of a human mind. 

That is why the communists and socialists will lose this current fight because everything they are doing is rooted in ignorance from a failed philosophy rooted in Old World politics.  What made pirates invent democracy on their ships was a trajectory of human invention that was bound to discover eventually.  Power grabbers, just as the Blue State governors in America did over Covid, held tight their reigns of power for centuries in Egypt, Rome, England, the Roman Catholic Church, the Dynasties of China, everywhere because they feared that people might figure out that they didn’t need them.  The modern liberal wants more than anything to return to those times, but that is not the mind of humanity.  Humanity wants to be left alone and to make a life for themselves without such intrusions.  And it is that which the progressive insurgents are fighting.  They aren’t fighting some ancient concept of race relations, but the inclination of all humankind, the need to be free to live, love, and be productive for their desires.  Not the wishes of a centralized government.  Now that the Biden administration has shown its intentions, people will rebel.  Many were willing to give him an honest chance even though people like me were warning against it.  But now they can see for themselves, and they won’t be fooled again.  The old tactics are not effective ultimately because the driver of capitalism is not genetics. It’s a desire from everyone from everywhere to live free of a boss and enjoy existence for all the opportunities it can provide.

Anna Perez Understands: Overcoming America’s inferiority complex and becoming your own shepherd

Overcoming America’s Inferiority Complex

As I was promoting my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business,I discovered the show on Real America’s Voice, The Water Cooler, with David Brody.  I contacted the producer Anna Perez about coming on and talking about the book’s contents because it seemed that they would be interested.  This is the same network that produces The Warroom and Dr. Gina, so they have some good things going on there that people are just discovering.  I certainly fit in that category.  Here I was promoting a book, but my personal feelings limited my reach to an audience with clear parameters regarding the massive amounts of injustice that we see play out politically.  So Fox News was out.  Newsmax was too wishy-washy.  They wanted to be a Fox replacement, but they were shying away from the real sources of the problem.  One American News was stuck in what we’ll talk about here, a kind of inferiority complex common among conservatives for all the reasons we’ll discuss.  So what I found in Real America’s Voice was something different.  They were confident, hungry, and asking all the hard questions.  I had a person the other day asking me on Gettr what a replacement for Fox was during a discussion and when I said Real America’s Voice, they shunned it away as if it was a radical right-winged network of religious freaks.  To that, I could only say, the crazy lunatics who are the current problem in the United States would say that anything to the right of Vladimir Lenin is a “radical right-winger.” The entire political scale has been moved and measured so that I would reject the whole premise.  Real America’s Voice represents most American beliefs, and I have found I enjoy them very much.  And I have become quite a fan of Anna Perez’s produced show The Water Cooler.  It’s more fun than The O’Reilly Factor, which made Fox News what it became, and it indeed points to the future of what our country will become once we sort out all this current mess and get Trump, DeSantis, or Kristi Noem in the White House again. 

Anna Perez has done several shows over the last several weeks when she has hosted The Water Cooler as David Brody has been out, that deals with the lack of masculinity in our culture.  Of course, we all know why, especially now.  Our society was primed for a global takeover, and the attackers wanted an easy way. So they watered down the necessity of men with all kinds of sexual viewpoints that would underline toxic masculinity in our culture and replace it with this kind of “beta” male that most women don’t want.  The rest of the world doesn’t identify with masculinity these days, and they certainly understood that to conquer the United States, men needed to be neutralized.  So of all the news reporting going on, Anna has been contemplating why we have allowed ourselves to fall for this concept of toxic masculinity in a busy news cycle.  It’s at the source of everything bad that has been happening to us as a country.  When attacked, the men are running away; they are not standing and fighting.  This goes back to every time society told us that it was OK to cry; we should all hug and express our feelings.  When public schools started promoting this kind of behavior twenty years ago, more people should have seen the intent.  But here we are, and Anna Perez is one of the only ones out there these days asking the question correctly and often.

I essentially wrote my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business as an answer to this problem.  It is a guidebook to solving many of these contemporary issues.  But to sum it up concisely to answer the question, I discovered the answer at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, as my book was going through the last parts of the editing process with the publisher.  I had long been thinking the same things as Anna has been, where are the men, why are they so ashamed, and how could we wake them up?  Well, oddly, the answer is one that essentially answers the old Saul Alinsky question about Christians and how the left can permanently paralyze conservatives into defensive positions when attacked.  The leftist attackers exploit a part of the conservative brain that puts them perpetually on the defensive, and now with the lack of manhood to defend such actions, there was no defense mechanism.  This was further obvious to me while at a funeral recently where the church was decorated with images of the shepherd guarding the flock of sheep, meaning Jesus playing the role of shepherd and the congregation being the sheep. That’s an excellent idea in church, but when some crazy leftists step in and take out the shepherd, they gain control of the sheep, and that’s what we find has happened to us.  The sheep might be upset about it, but they still follow whoever the shepherd is.  So for the world’s malcontents and evildoers, they understand that the way to beat conservative America is to fight to become their shepherd.  Replace their god with government, and most of the battle is already over.

I propose in my book for the reader to become their own shepherd and look back to the great gunfighters of American culture as the reference.  Take away the willingness to cooperate as a group of sheep and be your own shepherd.  It will help your business, your community, but most of all, your family.  But there is an additional problem that must be solved, which I discovered at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. It’s the inferiority complex that most Americans have about how young our country is and how we assume that Europe and other places are wiser than we are because of the depth of their history in arts and sciences.  While Buffalo Bill was touring his Wild West show around Europe, even he became enchanted with the Europeans honoring him as a great representative of American culture. That endorsement filled a need that he and most Americans had to be respected by the mother country.  Even now, most Americans still view Europe as the big brother or parent to impress.  There are many great things about America, but our weakness is that we don’t have a vast history of showing that our culture works instead of the other cultures around the world who do have deep histories.  That inferiority complex has prevented us from fully embracing an America First platform.  Sure, there are 30% of all people who get it.  But there is still another 20% who are too insecure about assuming that they are equal or even better off than European or Asian culture.  Then there are the below-the-line thinkers beaten in life who become liberals and want to be sheep all their lives. 

I talk about all this in the clip above; it’s a topic that could use much discussion.  But Anna Perez is tapping into the issue by identifying the toxic masculinity problem.  We can see the shadows of the conspiracy, which is undoubtedly a global trend.  I remember reading the Fifty Shades books a few years ago to understand why women were so hungry for those books, which were essentially about sadomasochism.  I found the lead character repulsive and excessively weak.  From a female perspective, there were all kinds of things going on. The politics of our times have sought to remove men from society to expose that need in women.  The goal has been to replace men as the family’s shepherd and replace them with the government.  It was essentially a coup of every American home.  I wrote my book as a guide to get out of that cycle and to think not just like a man again, but as a culture of shepherds, not sheep.  And what makes us that way, and why are Americans different than other places in the world?  Well, it starts with the invention and cultivation of the gun in our culture.  Not as a weapon of death and destruction.  But in becoming shepherds of our destiny and leaders of business, industry, and family.
