Strive Asset Management: The woke pirates took over our finance industry, and now we’re taking it back

I consider it the most critical aspect of the strategy of modern politics, stopping the means of attack that progressive ideologies have inflicted on our nation through the back door of finance. We have seen nothing less than an attack from foreign investment into the critical infrastructure of America. The attack, in many ways, was much more insidious than when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. The attack against our country from the realm of finance has been much worse and was everything that President Jackson and President Jefferson were concerned about regarding centralized banking. When the Federal Reserve was eventually created, many were concerned that it would get out of control, which it has. The unholy alliance that emerged in the Federal Reserve in the wake of the 2008 housing bubble burst with Larry Fink of BlackRock has been absolutely detrimental and fulfilled the worst fears that anti-centralized bank critics could even imagine to utter. The situation is so bad that many people can’t comprehend the magnitude of the problem. We are seeing now, with Jerome Powell stating that the Fed would continue to raise interest rates until inflation was under control, how vast the problem really is. But what many don’t know is that Ben Bernanke moved to a plan to print endless amounts of money, which Larry Fink then used to drive BlackRock up to 10 trillion in asset control, which they then used to buy up most of the prominent corporations in America, so to leverage them to change the way they measure success, from profit-based companies to ESG score management, which has been insidious. 

Within a short time, really, over the last decade, the big three asset management companies in the world, BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard, have moved to convert every company they deal with into progressive political advocates, essentially using stock buys to control their board of directors. This is how woke politics have emerged into just about everything we interact with, from the products we buy to the companies we work in for our means of income. I often compare it to a group of pirates who pulled alongside a massive galleon full of people, treasure, and big guns with a little schooner flying a peace flag. Then, before it was too late, they ran up the Jolly Roger to show they were pirates, and before the big ship could react, the pirates climbed abord and took over the ship. No longer are the pirates harassing shipping lanes with a little schooner; they have their own galleons and are now a threat to the world’s navies. What Larry Fink did, as a vital member of the Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum, was to capture American industry and use it as a military acquisition to impose progressive politics on all Americans and destroy any concept of national sovereignty government by the American Constitution. That is why they and the Biden administration do not care about the Constitutional rules of our nation, because in their mind, they already control our economy, and there is nothing at this point that we can do about it. We can protest, but they’ll ignore us because they don’t believe we have any power to resist them.

That is until Vivek Ramaswamy, Peter Theil, and several others made the media rounds to discuss the leak from The Wall Street Journal about the money management option that is coming in the 3rd quarter of 2022, Strive Asset Management. I’ve known about this for a while now and was asked not to talk about it. I have some very dear friends who are working directly with Vivek to make this happen, and their goals are nothing less than to take on BlackRock and recapture all that looted market share. It is, in essence, the equivalent of tricking the pirates with a schooner of our own and getting close and taking back over that ship and running the pirates out of our sea lanes to secure commerce politically free once again. I would say that this is more important than the 2024 election, bigger than CRT in public schools, and far bigger than any considerations happening in Ukraine, China, or Russia. What Strive Asset Management is “striving” to restore capitalism to its value-based measurements and give people who do not like having their 401K plans sabotaged and used for progressive politics an off-ramp for their investments that they currently don’t have. Presently, the money managers are entirely controlled by woke progressive politics, which is why things have turned so chaotic recently. These policies have occurred beyond the political reach of any elected politicians, so the attack vector was one we weren’t prepared for as a nation. We can have a military to be ready for war. We can all own guns in our homes to prevent a domestic invasion. But this invasion came through finance, through our Federal Reserve, through Wall Street, and it came from foreign investment that controls over 20 trillion dollars, more than America’s entire GDP per year. Jackson fought the banks hard during his presidency to prevent this very kind of problem. We understand why because we see it in all its ugliness today.

This is why a few weeks ago, I took my copy of Vivek’s book Woke, Inc to him, where I was at an event he was at and had him sign it. I do not care about celebrity. I’ve met Vivek several times; I like him quite a lot. Just his autograph doesn’t do much for me, personally. But as the years pass and we look back on this time and want to remember it, I want the kids of my kids, kids to know when they see that book on my bookshelf just how important it was at this time and the lessons we all had to learn from it. Very few people saw how dangerous the progressive attack was on our corporate institutions, and Vivek was the first to see the Jolly Roger flag go up on the ship because he wasn’t looking at the flag mast; he was looking at the pirate standing in the ship which was preparing to run it up. And while the damage to our economy has been tremendous, I think we got the alarm out in time. Strive Asset Management is the first significant step into taking back our country. It takes people like Vivek, Peter, and many unnamed people working behind the scenes to make it happen, some of whom I know personally. These are the kind of people who can walk straight into Hell and freeze it over just with their presence. So Strive Asset Management is the place to go with your money. At the same time, the world will realign to the powers of capitalism, rejecting the insurgents who have hijacked all our lives, our governments, and our corporations through the most hostile takeover in world history. And they thought they were going to get away with it and that we’d have no other choice but to bend the knee to their stolen power. That is until Vivek came along and spotted the threat, and the rest is history. Its for that reason, I wanted his signature in my book. Its history now, and I never want people in the future to second guess the role finance plays in a good country the way many criticized President Jackson and his war with the banks without context. Now we know better, and we can never let it happen again.

Mike DeWine Ruined Kings Island’s 2020 Season: The danger of an out-of-control government ran by losers like the current Ohio governor

As if anybody needed a reminder about just how terrible Mike DeWine has been as governor. Apparently, there are people out there with the memory of a goldfish, so they need the reminder. Just remember on election day of May 3rd, 2022, that Kings Island, one of the greatest amusement parks in the country, in the world for that matter, is currently under a big lawsuit from season pass holders from the 2020 season who wanted a refund, and are now taking the Cincinnati treasure to court over how the parent company, Cedar Fair Amusements handled the government imposed business shutdowns during the fake Covid pandemic. Now for those who aren’t regular readers, you probably know people who were sick over Covid, who may have died. Remember about Covid, which Governor DeWine was one of the first in the country to be suckered into the Bill Gates power grab for which Covid was created. Covid-19 was made in a lab in Wuhan, China. Dr. Fauci knew about it. He and Bill Gates knew some medicines could have stopped the virus, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. Still, they deliberately suppressed that information from the public with donations made by Bill Gates to manipulate the media coverage and steer the public toward government-mandated vaccines, a multi-decade project that Bill Gates personally has funded so to usher the world toward a one-world government run by the United Nations steered by the Desecrators of Davos party. The same minds have now brought us the crises in Ukraine. And regarding Covid, the government reaction to the virus caused trillions of dollars of damage, ruined many lives, destroyed jobs, and broke the laws of our constitutions in gross ways that many thought was impossible before 2020. Kings Island in northern Cincinnati is an example of how government can ruin lives when it is unchecked and has too much power, for which Governor DeWine is guilty. 

I was on several conference calls with Ceder Fair Amusements and Governor DeWine during the spring of 2020 when the entertainment giant was making its plea to get some visibility to schedule when they could reopen operations. At that time, it was May. Being a seasonal company operating two very large amusement parks in Ohio, which Mike DeWine had prevented from opening by abusing his emergency powers as governor, Cedar Fair Amusements needed answers from the government-created travesty. They had no idea when they could open Kings Island or Cedar Point, and being a seasonal company, they were already hurt in acquiring employees for the season. On that conference call, Mike DeWine was strutting his authority under emergency powers, and it was apparent that he never planned to give up those powers. Now two years later, we still have the pandemic going. The Democrats want desperately to use Covid emergencies to shield them from election results they don’t like. That was certainly the case in 2020 when they wanted Donald Trump out of office. And it’s the case now in 2022, with midterms shaping up to be really devastating for Democrats and the terrible job they have done at the national level possessing all three houses of government, Blue state governors are still looking for Covid to shield them from poor performances. And out of all the governors in the country, Mike DeWine has governed as a blue state governor, certainly not a Republican. And on that phone call, he could not tell Cedar Fair Amusements when they could open or the plan for them ever to do so. DeWine was utterly unsympathetic to the business community’s needs and showed everyone just how dangerous government could be when it was out of control. 

That year Kings Island finally was able to open with horrendous restrictions to the public by July, after half the season was over. That year also, Kings Island had to shut down their Halloween Haunt weekend schedule and their Winterfest activities. So Kings Island was open from July 4th essentially to Labor Day. And before DeWine would let them do that, they had to agree to all kinds of unscientific social distancing rules and mask mandates after having to scramble to find enough employees even to open the park, let alone to give the customers the amusement park experience that they were craving. Kings Island was trying to open one of their big multi-million dollar Giga coasters, and the steam of the whole event was completely destroyed by what DeWine himself had done. Under emergency powers, he cut out the legislature. He took complete command of Ohio’s economy, which he didn’t have the right to do. He took hundreds of millions of dollars from Kings Island in opportunity cost. For Cedar Fair Amusements, it was a devastating summer, just as it was for many hundreds of thousands of other companies, large and small, who struggled to survive the ominous behavior of government exerting powers it didn’t have for the destruction of the people they were supposed to serve. If Covid was a virus that was built by our own Defense Department, funded by Dr. Fauci, and released by China as a bioweapon, and it robbed us of our taste buds, our health, and happiness, the government reaction to it with all the rules and regulations was far more dangerous. People might say that Cedar Fair Amusements is a wealthy company with all the money to absorb the costs. Those would be people who have no idea how much money it takes to run an amusement park. 

I thought what Kings Island did that year was good; they essentially gave all season pass holders for the 2020 season a free renewal of the 2021 pass. Even that following year, Covid was still a problem, and DeWine had just reopened the state against his will. The Senate passed a bill to take those emergency powers away from DeWine, and it finally went into effect in June of 2021, and then and only then did DeWine step away from the lockdowns. The government had spent over a year terrifying people over Covid, which certainly hurt Kings Island’s business model. It will likely take them a decade to recover what was lost in just that one year. The current lawsuit is over how Cedar Fair Amusements managed Covid, which was entirely out of their control. Some people wanted a refund of their 2020 passes because they couldn’t use them. My wife and I went one time to ride the new Orian ride but didn’t go the rest of the year because the mask mandate was impossible to deal with in the hot summer sun, and it wasn’t worth it to us. We thought it was nice that Kings Island honored our passes for the following year. In 2021 we went often but noticed that many of the normal crowd had not returned. Some people were still worried about Covid, and they might never feel comfortable going out in public again. Those are the people suing Kings Island because they wanted a complete refund of their passes for 2020. The government had so terrified those people that they were permanently damaged. So now, with the summer of 2022 coming, Mike DeWine is running for a second term. And Kings Island is in court trying to defend itself from actions that Governor DeWine caused by his horrible mismanagement of Covid in the summer of 2020. Anybody who votes for him after that terrible performance is an idiot and an enabler of abuse.

God Bless Homeschoolers: Times have changed, and more people are turning away from the terrible public schools to save their children

I thought it was a waste of time when I went to public schools. I hated most of it. None of the relationships I formed in those school years meant anything to me. I always viewed public school as a massive social experiment, even in the early years, and thought of going there the same as going to prison. You weren’t allowed to think about what you wanted or do what you wanted, which always seemed wrong to me. So I never have been enthusiastic about public schools, and over the years, I have written millions and millions of words about why John Dewy was wrong about forming it from the beginning. I didn’t feel any different when my own kids went to public school. There was a time when my wife was very supportive, one of my kids was in the fourth grade, and the other was in third. My wife volunteered in everything that she could in both of those classrooms. She was one of the “moms” that the school treated almost like a teaching staff member. Everyone knew her, and she was beloved by all the kids. Well, in that fourth-grade class, the school had sent home a permission slip for teaching my daughter about sex by putting on a condom onto a plastic dildo, and of course, we said no. What followed was a complete mess; the school was so angry with us that the full force of their wrath was brought down on us. No longer was my wife welcome in the school. We got mad and fought back. It turned into a significant event in that the police union got involved, and it ended up in the mayor’s office. We ended up pulling our kids out of school for a year until we moved to a different district and started all over again somewhere else. 

That year of teaching our kids at home was one of the hardest in our entire 30-plus-year marriage. We had no family support for it, and the community was entirely against it. We lost all our friends over it, and even 20 years later, we never repaired those relationships. I was alright with the social castigation, but it was very difficult for my wife. It was just a year of homeschooling, but it cost her a lot because of the social pressure we experienced. That’s why it surprised me that both of my kids pulled their kids out of public school during the Covid pandemic, a government-made viral outbreak that they wanted to control through government-taught education. Because my education always involved elements of life outside of public school, and I had never accepted public education as a form of education that was of any value, it was easy for me to see what a stupid set-up it was with the whole Covid thing. My kids have now been homeschooling their kids for a lot longer than my wife, and I had. But they had a much different experience just over 20 years later. Instead of everyone telling them in society how wrong they were, they were getting admiration from their peers. Most people they interact with expressed a desire to do the same thing for their kids if they could afford to, which most can’t. And there are large homeschooling conventions now that didn’t exist in the 90s. The support system is much better than it used to be, which can be seen in some of the pictures in this article, as my kids just went to a large homeschooling convention in Cincinnati. 

Attitudes have changed a lot about public education. It’s certainly not that anybody hates education, quite the opposite. What is evident at an event like the Ohio Homeschool Convention is that people have learned not to accept the bad product that public school is. The concept that kids can learn what they need to in life by a government school is ridiculous and ill-conceived. Many people never thought to accept the question of it because they had no choice in the matter. Most everyone has to go to public schools, so they had to justify the terrible product because to admit otherwise would be personally harmful to their intellects. That was why we had such a violent experience when my wife and I did it. But despite what is projected from the media culture about public schools, attitudes have changed dramatically. Even people who I would think would be all into the public school experience with cheerleading and pom poms are telling my kids how much they admire them for putting their kids first and taking responsibility for their educations themselves. My kids take my grandchildren’s education very seriously, and I’m very proud of them. In my house, we read books, lots of them, education never stops, no matter if you are 7 or 70. I have smart kids, and they are helping my grandchildren unlock the treasures of their own brains, and it’s a beautiful thing to look at. They have chosen not to surrender their kids over to some scum bag government employee covered in tattoos and body piercings who don’t even know what sex they are. And my grandchildren aren’t even thinking about sex in school under the third and fourth grades. When my grandkids come home, there is a parent in the house to greet them, as they always should be. Turn your kids over to a daycare or a public school, then don’t complain when they turn out to be messed up adults. Those babysitting services are not replacements for a parent’s love, as Dewey and the government fully intended to destroy.

So like a lot of things that have come out of Covid, the media seemed surprised that public school enrollment is down as pandemic restrictions have been eased. Parents have seen enough, and those who can are not sending their kids back to those palaces of mental enslavement. What the political left never factored into their calculations about “the new normal” was that it wasn’t going to be the complete obedience that Klaus Schwab talks about in his books on a complete socialist takeover of all things in the world. Instead, the smart people not yet suckered into enslavement were never again going to trust the government, health officials, or a public school system to do anything with their kids. A lot of parents are going to change the way they do things. The violence toward my wife and me mentioned was their attempt to keep dissidents from escaping their control, and they tried everything to punish us, which was a horrible idea. A lot of unnecessary pain resulted, which could have been averted. But instead of getting more control over that period, they have essentially lost it all. People do not feel privileged to have a public school system like they used to even ten years ago. Now, it’s just a necessary evil because they are too busy to do the job themselves or don’t feel they know enough to teach their own kids. But with every teacher who comes on television and talks about gender neutrality and represents themselves as progressive disasters, there will be more parents who want to homeschool their children to keep them out of that government-designed disaster. And to my eyes, with the long game under consideration, that just might save America rather than destroy it, as Dewey always intended.

America’s Book on Strategy: Amazon is practically giving away ‘The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business,’ and that’s fine with me

One type of book I really enjoy is strategy books by different cultures to see how they view warfare. That is particularly the case with Unrestrictive Warfare written by the original People’s Liberation Army Documents. These days, around the world, because everyone wants to understand how China fights battles, that is the book everyone is paying attention to. But what continues to happen is that the United States is underrepresented in books about strategy, which has always disappointed me. Because America has had the best economy. We have had the best culture. We have the best military. We have had the best, best, and the best at everything, and because of the woke ways of the world, especially coming out of the jealous Desecrators of Davos types, we aren’t supposed to flaunt that trait. So, there hasn’t been much representation on the stage of strategy books representing American ideas instead of other cultures worldwide. I wasn’t happy with that. Because I read many books, I found that nobody was writing the type of book that America needed these days. They will read Unrestrictive Warfare, which the Chinese wrote in the late 1990s, and find it interesting but not very substantive. But it looked purposeful that America wasn’t publishing strategy guides on beating down the kind of forces we see attempting to destroy America today. There are plenty of self-help books out there and lots of books on business that are intended to help people become better at their jobs and better in their lives. But they all have a yielding to the current order of things as their primary theme. Yet, America deserves better, so I wrote The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business for that exact reason. It’s different, it works, and I am very happy that I did write it when I did because many people, especially influencers, have used it to make their lives better. And that has been good, especially with the timing of things that have come undone in the world since I wrote the book.

Amazon is selling the book currently for $7.60, and I don’t mind telling everyone that. I’m all for it if you can get the book for a much lower price. I didn’t write the book to make a lot of money, just as I don’t write for profit on this blog site. I do these things because they are the right things to do in the world, and I want people to be successful for personal reasons. I am quite aware that Amazon is not crazy about carrying The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business. Many people have picked up the book, yet no reviews are shown. And they have continued to drive the pricing down to cover their costs but to deny my publisher a piece of the pie. The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business was originally $16.93 when it first came out in August of 2021, so the pricing strategy from a very progressive publisher is obviously intended to discourage the publication of these kinds of books. But like most things we see these days, progressive politics has sought to control us through financial motivations. That’s how they control us in our jobs, that is how they are trying to trick the world into accepting progressive politics in our investments, and it’s how they control us from yard to yard in our homes. People seldom ever do things for the right reasons because they are always concerned about taking care of their financial necessities. So in that way, many of the attackers, including Amazon, try to steer us all through finance to get us to walk through the mouse maze to get the cheese they have hidden, to control what we do and think from a fundamental position of staying alive. It’s a malicious game, but I live my life in a way that affords me to think bigger than that. So I am encouraging people to take the price reduction just to get the book. If people continue to buy the book, as many people have and enjoy it, I’m happy. 

The profit for me isn’t my take from an Amazon sale, which isn’t anything at all at the prices they are selling it. I want America to survive and for many of our companies to make it through this obvious mode of attack that is much clearer in 2022 than it was even in 2019 when businesspeople who knew I was writing The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business were apocalyptic about my motivations. The woke culture was already taking hold of most company leadership at that time, and my thoughts on how to deal with it were certainly not conducive to the Klaus Schwabs of the world and what they wanted to do. My goal was to destroy woke culture without destroying the companies they were taking over by isolating the true value of our lives and the work we do in the framework of American Exceptionalism and daring those who might argue the fact to take their shots and be shot down in a dusty street metaphorically in the process. I couldn’t at that time count on all my fingers and toes how many times some enemy in the business world had tried to cancel culture me out of existence. I have spent over 30 years in business dealing with every kind of betrayal that human beings can do to each other. Over time, it is evident that most of that was a strategy being used against the United States to destroy it from within. So when I wrote The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, I had read all the excellent strategy guides that there were in the world. Still, I wanted to write one for Americans who were being attacked by jealous globalists trying to trojan horse our culture for the looting of their intentions in the light of day and hoping to get away with it. Many of those critics who expressed their disdain for what I was doing in 2019 understand in 2022 why I wrote the book. Hindsight has certainly provided them with more rational vision; let’s just put it that way.

Ideas are the best kinds of weapons, especially in war, and without question, America has been at war for many centuries now. It’s a war that hasn’t been well defined and was concealed with politeness. But as I saw all the time, we must always judge people based on what they do, not what they say. The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business will help any reader understand how to see behind that politeness to the true intentions of the many villains who are trying to destroy America through our businesses these days, under the progressive attacks of the Biden administration and a world running him who still want revenge for the Revolutionary War. If we’re going to save ourselves and our excellent economy, we need a strategy that sees the enemy and calls to name them when the rest of the culture tries to hide the name so that people don’t see what they are up to. It has been very rewarding to write The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business and help the people it has already helped, primarily influencers who are in positions to do great things on the battlefield of ideas. In that way, I have accomplished my goals. But there’s more to do, and for those interested, Amazon is practically giving the book away. They might think in their progressive minds, just like Twitter, that denying profit on the book is the goal and that it might discourage me from doing these kinds of activities.

But contrary to their progressive logic, I want the book to be in as many hands as possible. And if I could give them away on a street corner for free, I certainly would. More people with knowledge of fighting this modern war is far better than a big check. Saving our country and our way of life is far more critical, and for me, that has always been the case.

Middletown BMV Closes Due to Government Stupidity: The bad service they give you with smiles on their vengeful, lazy faces

It’s bad enough that Biden managed to twist a few Republican arms to get his radical lunatic Supreme Court Justice approved. The 5th Circuit Appeals Court kept Biden’s ridiculous executive order on Covid vaccines alive. Even though an illegal president obviously created both those things, now that we see the evidence of election fraud in 2020, Biden was not elected by voters but was inserted by an investment class with goals from outside our country. So Constitutionally, Biden isn’t qualified to make any decisions. The war with Ukraine and Russia is Biden’s fault. The inflation rate is Biden’s fault. The high gas prices are Biden’s fault. But we can typically ignore some of those things to some extent. The worst thing that is the fault of Joe Biden and the progressive losers of doom in his administration is essential government services like interactions with the IRS and our local BMV (Bureau of Motor Vehicles.)  When Democrats run the government, the benefit you get is much more like when traveling Europe, where service is terrible. There is no motivation to serve. And everything is lackadaisical. Since the massive mismanagement by the Biden administration on Covid, the employment force of America has deteriorated tremendously. In their quest for student debt forgiveness and a socialized universal wage and minimum wage increases that are preposterously too high, the Biden administration has polluted the workforce to the point where few people want to work. We can see this in local instances, such as what has happened near me, where a local BMV is closing in Middletown, Ohio, due to staffing shortages. Their employee attendance is so bad that they just closed that agency as a reaction. 

This Covid impact on the employee workforce is entirely the fault of the Biden administration. The Trump administration wanted to have everything in our economy back open after the initial 15 days to slow the spread. Remember that? Trump figured out that Democrats wanted Covid to harm the economy and get him out of office, so he pushed to open our economy by Easter of 2020. Of course, the Democrats fed by Bill Gates money had captured the airwaves and convinced everyone that people would die if we reopened our economy. Well, people did die, but not because of Covid; it was because Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci deliberately kept medicine to treat Covid-19 from the public, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, which allowed the virus to spread to virtually everyone, and kept our nation locked down for an additional year and a half. In that period, a sector of our economy was permanently destroyed, never to recover. Because of the government policies of calling off work for every little sniffle, and the stay at home quarantining, the work from home concept, the push for a “new normal,” what we have now in 2022 is a workforce that is poorly engaged, slow to meet market demands, and much worse than even the most complacent unionized worker who just meanders through their day only to collect a paycheck, but cares nothing for the work they do, or why they must do it. What we saw with Covid-19 was government-sponsored terrorism that was intent on destroying our economy in America for all sorts of nefarious reasons. 

I have a few cases I’m working on that deal with large sums of money tied up by the IRS that are over a year late because the ridiculous tax-collecting agency indicates they are still short-staffed due to Covid restrictions. They have never been able to get a full IRS staff back to work, so their tasks are as slow as frozen maple syrup, and they expect us all to be okay with their cumbersome response. They think it’s acceptable to hold on to our money interest-free for ridiculous amounts of time and to like it as if they are doing us some kind of favor. Dealing with them is like dealing with some snooty waiter at an outdoor street café in Paris, slow, playing on their phone during the entire service, and not caring how you feel about your experience because they don’t get a tip in Europe, so they don’t care about the service experience. Government is the same way, they are just there for a paycheck, and they don’t care how your service experience goes. And when pressed, they all point to the White House, who has general jurisdiction on these kinds of matters, as the pacesetter.   Dealing with the government on any matter is embarrassingly painful; the incompetence is unbelievable, and that was before Covid. Now, Covid is the excuse of their industry. We were all supposed to accept this “new normal” life that the Klaus Schwab Desecrators of Davos losers created for the illegal Biden administration and have brought to America. 

It really hits home when you need to go to an agency office like the BMV in Middletown to get new plates for your RV or to conduct some title work, and the place isn’t open. It’s closed because of government mismanagement in handling the fake pandemic of Covid, created entirely by government stupidity, only to produce more government stupidity which you then have no choice but to interact with. Now all that work that Middletown used to handle, which is closest to my house, must now go to a neighboring city that has become more crowded with crybaby employees sitting around lazily telling you to take a number. They’ll get to you when they get to you. Nothing says liberal like that phrase, “we’ll get to you when we get to you,” where personal constraints are never managed, embracing laziness. We can talk all day about the foreign invasion into our country by the Desecrators of Davos and their schemes in finance. We can talk about the spying that goes on with China into stealing our intellectual property. We can speak of Russian cyberattacks and other acts of terrorism worldwide. But the worst of all has been the destruction of the American workforce and productivity during and after Covid, such as this closing of the BMV in Middletown, Ohio.

The government isn’t even trying to get better; they just close down a branch of service because they can’t staff it and make doing business with the government even worse and think that’s acceptable. It makes it evident that Covid was never about health and concern for the human race; it was the exploitation of fear to make the lazy feel more equitable in the world. It was just another form of desecration, just as the transgender issue has been introduced to us by the same lunatics, the concept that we no longer have men and women. Still, we can make up anything we want along the way, depending on how we feel. Well, I feel like not paying taxes anymore. Or I feel like I don’t want this government representing me. Or I feel like the government owes me millions of dollars in lost opportunity cost. If we are going to base everything on liberal feelings, well, that’s a door they can’t afford to open. And as bad as everything truly is, the true measure of that disgusting inefficiency that we see so often in government is when they close a BMV because they just can’t manage the location because their management methods are so terrible. In the end, we are the ones who suffer as they just collect their paychecks, play on their phones, and bring detriment and destruction to the American workforce with vengeful smiles on their lazy faces.

The Climate Change Cult of Larry Fink and his Desecrators of Davos Friends: We need a separation of church and state to protect Ohio’s powerplants

Think how ridiculous the concept is; for many years in America, we were told that we had to take the Ten Commandments out of our courthouses, that we couldn’t pray in public schools, that we had to have a separation of church and state. Then, we watch the Desecrators of Davos at their World Government Forum in Dubai use climate change religion as the primary means to attach all of us to their insane view of the world. They have introduced a religious cult to the world and suddenly think it mandates a necessity for change that ties all of us to it whether or not we believe it. Climate change, by no measure, is a science; it’s a cult of earth worshipers who have a maniacal desire to return to the primitive village of global habitation. And they want it for all the same crazy religious disputes that have taken place over the history of the human race, to control those villages during human lifetimes. It’s a ridiculous proposal, yet when it comes to the global management people who spoke in Dubai with Klaus Schwab and the usual Desecrators of Davos crowd who are using climate change speculation at creating fear and anxiety to drive change, we see those changes in our local communities. This is no longer a debate for the nightly news, it is attacking the infrastructure of the United States, and it’s all built on nonsense, just as Covid science was. It’s a scam, a power grab no different than some crazed religious fanatic pointing to the rapture as a reason to sell all our worldly possessions. The essence of the climate change religion is to advance their cause without any evidence whatsoever, only fear and made-up articles paid for by billionaires who donate the funds to their own version of a mythical armageddon. 

In Cincinnati, Ohio, we are losing another power plant, the Zimmer plant, which is actually up the river in Moscow from downtown Cincinnati. It was scheduled to close by 2027 purely over ridiculous environmental standards imposed on it by a government captured by the Desecrators of Davos, the Larry Finks of the world. They use ESG scores to impose changes to progressive businesses rather than political ones at the ballot box. They knew people would never vote to cut their own throats, so they attacked the boards of directors of power plants like Zimmer and gave them ridiculous standards to live up to based purely on the climate change religion. And knowing that the inevitable is happening anyway, the Zimmer people are just throwing in the towel and closing the plant early. Where is that extra power going to come from? The Desecrators of Davos intend to impose on us all wind and solar methods that may or may not work all the time. And when they don’t work, we are supposed to sacrifice our power needs to the gods of climate science and be happy about it. Their reasoning is just as crazy as some Mayan priests cutting off the heads and hearts of human sacrifices on a temple top in the Yucatan, hoping that the killing of people might help make it rain for their crops to grow. We might laugh at such notions now in the modern age, which the Mayans or Egyptians might have believed. But the climate change radicals are just as ridiculous. 

It’s one thing to look at people like the Descrecrators of Davos and laugh at their sheer stupidity in what they believe. For instance, I could have owned a condo in Florida in the 1980s and today measured the same distance from the porch to the high tide mark, and it wouldn’t have changed at all. I could also point to archaeological sites in England now covered by water across the English Channel and show that the sea level there rose several hundred feet from the last Ice Age. People could have walked then across to France without getting wet. Climate change is a condition of living on earth, and some cycles occur every 10,000 years, every 600,000 years, and every 10 million years. The climate will never stay the same whether or not humans are on it. Instead, the climate change religious lunatics have seen how well the phony science worked with Covid and have become encouraged to make their long-planned moves to control the world much more aggressively. It’s not that we can laugh at their stupidity from afar; they are in all our companies, our government, and running our country through finance, attaching all of us to their radical religion. Whether we agree with their religion of climate change or not, we are all being forced to live under their rule, just like some medieval dispute between the Catholics and Protestants. It is the dumbest thing in the world that we addressed in America upon its founding. Separation of church and state. 

Just as liberals protested that they didn’t want to see our Ten Commandments, we don’t want to see their stupidity over wind turbans and solar panels. We don’t want to be tied to their crazy cult, which isn’t any different than the fanatics of the Jim Jones massacre or the Helter Skelter murders. What the Desecrators of Davos believe is insane; their religion of climate change is the stuff of lunacy. They do not have a right to attack our infrastructure in America with it, so the same argument must apply in their direction. Climate change is not a science. There is no scientific evidence anybody can point to and show a need for any human action on it, any transfer of energy from a coal plant to a solar farm not while China is opening a new coal plant much dirtier than Zimmer every week as we allow the Descecrators of Davos through agents like Larry Fink to destroy the Ohio power grid leaving us all starving for power. What business will want to come to Ohio if they can’t get any power and have to wait for the wind to blow or the sun to come out to be able to microwave a sandwich in the breakroom? It’s insanity to allow a mindless cult to take over our energy grid in America by a bunch of religious fanatics who are just as superstitious as the many failed societies of the past who turned to sacrifice as the way to propel civilization forward. Not that a history lesson should be necessary, but it has never worked. And it won’t work this time. So it is time to call things what they are. Climate change is not science; it’s a religious cult advocated by losers who have no idea what they are talking about and expect the rest of the world to follow them toward our own destruction. When power plants in Ohio like Zimmer are shutting down over this nonsense, it’s time to call it for the good of the rest of society. The left has argued that they wanted protection from the religious founding of America with a separation of church and state. Well, we need the same to protect our businesses and our very lives from the religious cult of climate change. If they want to worship the earth, they can dress up in their stupid robes and chant to the ocean somewhere. But they need to stay out of our lives. Their insanity cannot be allowed to set policy for America or any of its people.

Ohio’s Thomas Hall: The Man of Law Enforcement

It’s not hard now to know what we do about Sheriff Jones, why he dislikes the Ohio Representative of the 53rd District so much. I still tell all the people who now dislike the good Sheriff that he has done many good things over the years, and his brand has been good for the Republican Party and the first Trump term. Whether or not he continues to hold that lofty position is up to him. So far, he is turning hard left and headed for Mike DeWine country. But that’s his decision. Politics is a blood sport, and blood does get spilled. And that’s certainly the case with the feud between Thomas Hall and Sheriff Jones. Learning what I have, this problem goes far beyond just disagreements over sponsored bills or even kissing the ring by the youth to the elderly. Instead, it looks like insecurity that many older people go through when they realize a younger generation is replacing them. It can be hard to look in the mirror and acknowledge that you are no longer that guy. And for a guy with an ego the size of Sheriff Jones, of course, getting to the end of a long career in law enforcement will stir up emotions. After endorsing Thomas Hall for his next election, where Jones is trying to primary him out of contention, I stopped by the Statehouse in Columbus to see how Thomas was holding up. It’s been a rough campaign. Like many politicians, they have no idea really when the primary will happen. It’s set for May, but it might change to August. And in Thomas’s case, he doesn’t even know what district he’s running for because the Supreme Court might change it based on district mapping disputes. Yet, when I found Thomas in his natural habitat, I noticed that he was calm, cool, and sure of himself. And he quickly mentioned to me that Sheriff Jones’ labor union had endorsed him. 

Thomas told me all the measures he was taking to get re-elected, including all the door-to-door campaigns he had, regardless of how the districting broke down. We also talked strategy about the negative hits by Sheriff Jones. But now that the smoke had settled from the WLW incident back in November, where Jones went way out of his way to attempt to disparage Thomas in detrimentally belittling ways, the report from the outskirts of Butler County was that the Sheriff was losing his support. People in the rural parts of the county were always skeptical of Jones. They see him as more of a bully than a good cop, and that perception was already in place before Thomas Hall came into politics. The Sheriff is popular with the levy supporting Lakota moms and the big-government liberals, but not so much the rugged self-doers. When Jones supported Trump with them, they liked him. Now that he’s supporting Governor DeWine and is much more on the left than they are, they look at him with squinted eyes of skepticism. And in that way, most of Thomas Hall’s district falls under that category, so the attempts by Jones to disparage Hall have actually seemed to help the young congressman because he provides a protest vote to Jones.

Thomas and I spent quite a lot of time catching up, walking through the rotunda and eventually down into the atrium with the giant Greek pillars standing as testaments of law and order. We took a few pictures and continued to talk about the campaign and his goals for his second term. But along the way, the Governor was walking around in the rotunda, taking pictures with whoever wanted them, so there was a significant police presence everywhere. While we talked, Thomas Hall stopped by each one along our path, thanked them for their service, and showed them how much he appreciated them. They were highly appreciative and receptive. This went on with a frequency that stopped our conversation about every 30 seconds. My thought at the time was that Thomas was doing this for my sake, so I wondered if he did that kind of thing all the time. After taking a few pictures, he had to run off for a session, and we parted ways. But my curiosity wondered if, even in a bit of a hurry and without me around, he would continue to shake hands with all the officers on his way back to his office. 

It was a formal occasion that day, so I was dressed in a suit like everyone else. It was easy for me to hang way back and follow Thomas Hall to his office. He didn’t know I was following as I blended into the crowd. And sure enough, he stopped by every officer, not the same ones as before, of course, and shook their hand and showed them how much he appreciated them. Now Thomas Hall is the son of the old cop who stopped the shooting at Madison Schools a few years prior. Hall grew up with a love of law enforcement and public service, which is why as such a young man, he is already moving toward another term as a House Rep after a past as a trustee in his community. But this reverence for the police was not fake. He didn’t know I was watching him, yet he was very sincere about it. Like I say all the time, don’t listen to what people say; watch what they do. The police of Butler County know what kind of young man Thomas Hall is, and they like him. And that looks to be the problem Sheriff Jones has with him. It’s more a problem that Jones has than what Thomas has. And when the Sheriff’s own police union supported Thomas Hall despite of the activism of Jones, the direction of the campaign was clearly headed in a direction favorable to Hall. The police can see where the future is, and Thomas Hall is their guy. And deservedly so. 

I always enjoy learning these kinds of things about people. We live in a world full of fake people and broken promises. There are few people out there who actually exceed expectations. I already liked Thomas Hall before our meeting at the Statehouse of Ohio, in those grand chambers of intellect and the pursuit of justice. But after watching him work with people and his behavior when he didn’t know anybody was looking, I knew that there was a lot special about Thomas Hall. It’s a shame that Sheriff Jones is trying to put a rift in the Butler County Republican Party the way he is. I understand that fear of becoming irrelevant. I would even think of it as a forgivable situation. Nobody wants to see the memory of the Sheriff be like that old dog that bit some little kid at the end of its life, erasing all the good things that had occurred over its lifetime. But that is for the Sheriff to work out for himself. The police and voters where it matters were clearly happy with Thomas Hall, and he was certainly willing to do whatever it took to defend his House seat. And he was confident the way unbeaten people in life usually are. And when you are as good and sincere as Thomas Hall is, it looks clear that he will remain unbeaten for the foreseeable future. Thomas Hall is the man of law enforcement, and the police know it and will reward him accordingly.

The Child Torturing Cult to Harvest Adrenochrome: How and why to stand against evil for the perpetuation of a good society

Like I say all the time, don’t judge people by what they say. Watch what they do. Actions speak louder than words, always. If a murderer is asked, “did you kill that person.” They will say, “no, I love people. It was all a misunderstanding.” If you say are you a cheater, “did you cheat,” they will say, “no, I am always honest; I go to Church on Sunday, I’ll swear on the Bible.” And if you ask a child molester if they perform the task, even knowing what we do about it, that it is widespread these days and has become something we uncomfortably accept too quickly, they all deny it. Who admits to something like that, even in prison? When you talk to an inmate about such a thing, they will always declare that it was a misunderstanding.

Evil does its work in the shadows; they do not like honesty nor the light of day. So when there is talk about a blood-sucking adrenochrome cult that deliberately tortures sex-trafficked children for a satanic cabal of influential people, quickly the media tells us that it’s some kind of crazy QAnon conspiracy theory. And they chastise anybody for even bringing it up as if the mere suggestion was ludicrous. Remember Pizzagate in the Hillary campaign years? Remember the Spirit Cooking that was talked about in the John Podesta emails? The same people who lied to us about the Hunter Biden laptop, election fraud, and the cause of inflation are the same who declare that the practice of satanic worship among the supposedly powerful and the drinking of the blood of children is not happening. Yet the evidence is mounting up in ways that speak dramatically to the contrary.

There is what they say, which are blatant lies, then there is what they do. We know now what’s on the Hunter Biden laptop. Hunter Biden was having an affair with his dead brother’s wife, and he has naked pictures of his 14-year old niece on that laptop, which many people in the media have seen. At the core of the issue is a child pornography 101 kind of case, but it gets far worse than that. We know that Joe Biden’s daughter’s diary is real, the same one that the FBI harassed Project Veritas over with unconstitutional raids meant to intimidate, not to instill justice. We know there is a lot of smoke on the sex island of Jeffery Epstein and his mysterious suicide while awaiting trial.   The list of the powerful who visited that sex island of underaged girls is extensive and kept a tight mystery. We know people like Adam Schiff went there a lot, as did Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, and many others. These are not Walmart shoppers from our neighborhoods. I call them the Desecrators of Davos rather than elites because they aren’t superior to us. They are a bunch of screwed-up messes who crave power over logic and will do anything to get it. Is it that far-fetched to think that they’d pray to the devil or some supernatural aid of a demon or demons to gain a competitive advantage over other people? Consider that they’ll cheat in elections, and knowlingly lie about it. Why wouldn’t they turn to supernatural aid through some secret society or cult to enrich their lives with the sacrifice of other people to hopefully advance their own cause? Is that so farfetched? Just look at what they are doing. Look at the open border with Mexico and the amount of misery generated there with sex trafficking and human trafficking in general. Why is it allowed to happen by those in power now? Might it be that they believe that allowing it helps them in life, helps them find success and fortune? I’d say that history points to this being the most logical answer and the element that nobody is talking about.

People seek supernatural aid every day. Christians, after all, pray to God for guidance and help. It’s a generally accepted belief that prayer helps, and seeking that aid is morally good. But what if that prayer isn’t to a Christian God but of some devil from mythology. Or a demon that exists in the parallel worlds of dimensional occupancy. There are a lot of secret societies that have sought such supernatural aid throughout time, the Free Masons come to mind, the Rosicrucian’s, the Illuminati, the followers of Lucifer, and Gnostic shamans. There are shamans in just about every society, and they aren’t turning to the Christian God of the Bible for advice and aid. They seek those dead and gone or those who may not have ever yet emerged into the flesh on earth for guidance. They are all collective based, where they believe there is safety in groups, much the way Marxists believe in such psychological shelters within the warm blanket of society. Is it too farfetched to believe that they think that mass anxiety and the torture of human beings is off the table if the perpetrators of initiation believe they will get supernatural assistance toward their own goals from the point of view of their warped ideology? Climate change supporters fall under this religious fanaticism certainly. Would they take part in massive depopulation rituals through vaccines to save the planet they have come to think of as a human cell in the vast universe, a life all its own where the humans are the parasites that live off it and kill it with pollution? Well, just listen to those fanatics at a World Economic Forum discussion. They are just as crazy as what anybody thinks of the secretive Illuminati. 

The answer to all these questions is that, of course, there are people who are evil. They are lazy. They don’t like to work. They are insecure. And, of course, they will seek the easiest path to ruling the world. And just as quickly as a Christian will turn to prayer on a Sunday afternoon, there are characters who are failures as adult humans who will sell out a child, who will feed off the innocent and will do whatever they think some malevolent spirit would require of them just to get more power in life, for their own security as they see it. If they would or could enslave all of mankind with their actions through the malice of some demonic chant or mass sacrifice to the gods of evil throughout history, they surely would. And that leaves us to the point. We know people are functioning in the world with these motives. Whether or not these demons are victorious allies is something for debate. But the intent is what matters and acknowledging that evil is happening and is occurring on a mass level—knowing that we all have an obligation to stand up against it, if not for the most basic need to preserve the innocence of children. Children, no child, anywhere in the world, deserve to be let down by some lazy, failed adult who has wasted their lives becoming nobodies overflowing with vices. Kids do need protection from the failed adults who raise them, but that protection will not come institutionally. The police, the colleges, the corporate structure, even the churches are just as corrupt and falling for the secret society scam as anybody else. Instead, we have to stand for good and protect children with everything we do in our lives. We are to live for goodness even when people aren’t looking. We need to construct our society to keep kids from becoming part of some Luciferian scheme, which is now upon us with such a wave of evil that it is difficult to wrap our minds around it. Yet it’s our task to stand for children’s innocence and shield them from the malice of adult failures who are too far gone, usually by the time they arrive in their 30s, to be any good to anybody ever again. We are in an age where we must make some sort of declaration to help the young grow up with the opportunity for good, should they choose to embrace it. However, the choice is often made for them before they ever have the freedom to live for themselves. And that is the greatest tragedy on planet earth presently. It’s not climate change; it’s not politics; it’s not war. It’s the exploitation of children at the hands of evil, and the perpetuation of that evil by the good with a lack of action or judgment that is destroying the world. And if we want to do any good in the world, we would start there, because it’s in children that everything else comes from. They need adults to defend their lives before and after the womb and to have a real opportunity for truth, justice, and the American way.

My Defense of the ‘Star Wars’ Hotel: If it brings joy to people, which is does, its worth doing

I think it’s a huge story, even if it only concerns a small part of the overall population. After all, the topic of the day is shareholder capitalism that is attempting to be destroyed by the Desacrators of Davos strategy of stakeholder capitalism. And few companies are a bigger target for them than Disney Entertainment in the United States. Progressives have jumped all over the Disney Company. And now the Star Wars property they purchased from George Lucas in 2012 reflects the attack accurately from the Desecrators of Davos, the progressive incursion into all our lives not through the front door of politics, but through the backdoor of finance and business. Star Wars is an excellent meter to measure this kind of thing. It started out from the mind of George Lucas as a warning to 8 to 12-year-old boys how not to grow up to become evil. And today, it is the very definition of state control and authority to the compliance of the nanny state; everything Star Wars wasn’t. Naturally, fans are very upset about it and are letting Disney know. And now, after working on it for a decade and spending over a billion dollars developing their live Star Wars experiences at Disney World and Disneyland, the much talked about Star Wars hotel called, The Galactic Starcruiser is open for business, and all eyes have been on it. Many Star Wars fans are hating it and have been speaking out against it. So I have been watching it closely, and I have thoughts on it that are very much relevant to all our corporate problems in America. The challenge of wrestling away from the Desecrators of Davos insurgents our American concepts of capitalism from the imposition of state-controlled stakeholder capitalism is the challenge. Ironically, this Star Wars hotel finds itself right in the middle as a form of art displayed for all the world to see.

Star Wars is all about fighting back against institutionalized systems. But under Disney, they are all about yielding to that institutionalization. That was the critical error Bob Iger, and Kathy Kennedy made with Star Wars under the ownership of Disney. They should have followed the George Lucas plan. Instead, they ended up with a massive mess that will never be fixed. That is sad, but it’s why fans are so angry at Disney. However, I see some good in it all, and I think personally, Galaxy’s Edge in Disney World is one of the most fantastic things I’ve ever experienced. I will never forget my vacation there in 2019 with my wife. We had about two or three days of the best time I’ve ever had visiting the Star Wars park there at Hollywood Studios and other attractions. It was the first time she and I had been kid-free in about two decades, and we were able to enjoy all that just as a couple. So I am still grateful for that experience, and I can see why people would want to go to the Galactic Starcruiser, which is essentially a Star Wars cruise in space. It’s very ambitious; it costs around 4 to 6 thousand per person to do and is essentially a Fantasy Island experience.   For three days and two nights, you enter the world of Star Wars all immersively and practically live a live Star Wars novel, which I think is pretty cool. Now I’m a gun at my hip kind of Star Wars fan. Not a sit around and play games kind of guy, and eat food and listen to music. If I don’t get to wear a DL-44 on my hip and go laser tagging, it’s not a lot of fun for me. It would cost me about $100K to take my clan. I checked it out, thought about it, and decided they’d like it, but not for that price. But, I know quite a few employees at Disney, many at the executive level, and I understand what they’ve done. They did their best. I also follow quite a few influencers on YouTube who work in the Orlando region, and they love the Starcruiser. They are much more social butterflies than I am, and I think it’s great in the world we are living in today that there is something like the Starcruiser for them. And in that context, I hope the Starcruiser is successful for Disney. Because I’d like to see, it remain an option. 

While at the Cincinnati Comic-Con this past September, I had a chance to talk to Timothy Zahn about this modern Star Wars stuff, and he’s pretty much where I am. He’s the guy responsible for all the great novels that came from Star Wars, going all the way back to the 90s when he started the trend. My wife and I have read well over 200 Star Wars novels. We are not fans of the new stuff since Disney bought Lucasfilm and turned radically more progressive. But at that Comic-Con, as Zahn signed a few books for me because I do love his books, we talked about the joy of those comic cons. There are people there who have had bad childhoods, society has let them down, religion has let them down, and they find refuge in Star Wars. They like to dress up and escape the world’s disappointments with some form of art, and Star Wars gives them that refuge. And I remember how it was in Hollywood Studios in the early days before Disney bought Lucasfilm. There were Star Wars weekends in May that were actual celebrations. I can’t blame Disney for wanting to give those fans what they dreamed of, a Star Wars land all their own, and even a hotel experience that allowed people to cosplay for three full days eating, thinking, and living Star Wars in a much better way than they would a comic con. That’s one of the reasons I read so many Star Wars books. In my crazy, very stressful life, those books were great places to relax and think about big concepts. I love them or have loved them. The Star Wars hotel was a chance to throw away the disappointments of politics, life itself, and live a fantasy. And that I think is a very useful thing. 

Even with all the politics, I might still do it with my family at some point. Seeing what Disney has done, they have tried hard to thread the needle and give everyone what they want, which usually means everyone is a little disappointed. But, knowing what we do about the world, I think we should all feel proud that we have a culture that can actually pull off something like this for this amount of money and commit resources to even attempting to do it. The Galactic Starcruiser is enormously ambitious, and if it survives, it could evolve over time in a positive direction. My grandchildren would get quite a kick out of it because the experience is essentially an escape room, a broadway play, and a novel all wrapped up into one experience. I can think of people who are very sick and dying of cancer, who are kids who would love for this to be the very last thing they did in life. They would die happy. They want to escape their problems, and art does that for human beings at its highest form. It’s not so much hiding from the pains of life as much as it gives the mind emotional distance from massive disappointments. And if this Starcruiser experience can do that for people, at any cost, then I think that’s a wonderful thing. And I hope that Disney can keep it going because there sure was a lot of love that went into it for all the right reasons.

Ron Howard and Klaus Schwab Attack Boeing: A new Netflix documentary exploits people to attempt to kill American capitalism

With all the talk against Boeing, the great American airline manufacturer that the liberal Ron Howard directed hit piece tried to utilize from the high moral ground, the effort has one central message. The world needs to convert its values from shareholder capitalism to stakeholder capitalism the way the Desecrators of Davos view it. The new Netflix documentary that is now streaming that tells a story of Boeing’s 737 MAX safety concerns is all about painting Boeing as a company that fell from grace due to its greed in trying to stay competitive with the Airbus A320 and that its focus on short term profits was what killed hundreds of people in two crashes that occurred in the new plane, one in Indonesia, and another in Ethiopia. The Hollywood hit piece comes at the problem from a political point of view. It attempts to exploit the deaths of innocent people in a way that sells the Klaus Schwab view of the world from the Desecrators of Davos and not the get it done mentality of American manufacturing. It’s really a disgusting movie made by people attempting to apply Covid safety rules to the stock value of Boeing and shove them into the woke world of progressive logic as only radical leftists understand them. A lot is going on in what went on with the Boeing 737 MAX and the world of safety surrounding it. But remember what I say all the time, the rules of the world are made by the losers, meaning, those who can’t compete with the good in the world make rules for themselves to penalize the best and make them more equal to the lazy, the timid, and the socially awkward. 

Boeing and Airbus have a problem when it comes to making plans for a newly created for a smaler world where air travel to even far-flung places in the world is suddenly possible, in a relatively short period. This has pushed all these plane manufacturers to massively automate these fancy new planes in ways that wouldn’t even be conceivable a few years ago. Traditionally, a company like Boeing almost exclusively had pilots flying their planes from military backgrounds. Their pilots had been flying planes for decades in the military dime, so when there were continuous improvement opportunities, pilot feedback with the engineering staff allowed for adjustments as a plane matured in a program. But these days, with all these new planes entering the market, the pilots from places like Indonesia and Ethiopia are coming from backgrounds where flying planes weren’t a reality. So the training of new pilots has to be significantly simplified, and every possible contingency needs to be worked out that takes away the possibility of pilot error. That is how the anti-stall system was put on these new MAX jets from Boeing so that new pilots without the benefit of years of training could fly these planes much easier. In the case of Boeing, their anti-stall system malfunctioned, which contributed to the crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia. When sensors on the plane detected a stall condition during flight, the system took over the pitch from the pilots and pushed the nose down. The pilots, unsure how to deal with that condition, fought the flight controls, but the planes nose-dived from the air into a crash because of all the robust automation they didn’t know how to override. It’s kind of ridiculous that their expert for this film to establish moral character as if he spoke for all pilots is a guy who crashed his plane in New York.

The real problem was automating the flight systems due to pilot training limits. In the great race between Airbus and Boeing between these new fuel-efficient planes, Airbus has had better luck at adopting their aircraft to the needs of automation. Boeing, used to a significant relationship between pilots and engineers built on American military experience, had engineered some single-point failures that have proven to be costly. It certainly wasn’t on purpose. But the point of the Ron Howard documentary wasn’t to see the situation as an accident in a rapidly changing marketplace, but an intentional killing of innocent people because Boeing was too interested in profits. And that if only we had a society that didn’t worry about shareholder value as much as they do, those people would still be alive. The movie written in the way that all communists think assumes that if there were more employees in the labor union at Boeing, that if there were more quality inspectors, and if Boeing had been willing to ground the MAX jet instead of competing with Airbus for market share, that all those lives would still be with us. The assumption was that Boeing killed those people in their airplanes because they were greedy and only cared about their company’s stock value. The other assumption which wasn’t said but was heavily implied was that in a world of stakeholder capitalism, which is essentially state-controlled communism where a strong central authority runs everything, lives would be saved, and everyone would live happily ever after. 

Even more than that, this movie, Downfall: The Case Against Boeing, is an attack on great American industry and a swipe at the traditionally get it done mentality of enterprise. As liberals who do everything in life behind the safety blanket of armchair quarterbacking, they never plan to take responsibility for anything, as all liberals are prone to do. They are the first to preach about the morality of something, but when their side is guilty of sex trafficking, or drug abuse, they point to institutional failure and not themselves. In the case of Boeing, they want to bring down the concept of the CEO with large salaries and to replace them with state central control, to federalize big companies like Boeing so that safety can be imposed, and the temptations to play with people’s lives will be averted. They don’t tell you that their solution to the problem is not to build the planes. They plan to let the market rot and to use safety to hide the incompetence of all involved. To use rules and regulations to protect the inefficient from any expectation that might come from competition. To bend the world to the limits of the slow, the not very smart, and the timid. Boeing was a company built on risk, on American innovation, and when you didn’t get it right the first time, horse sense allowed you to survive to the next day, and everyone worked together to make things better. But when dealing with a global enterprise, which is what aviation is these days, we deal with people from all kinds of backgrounds. And the challenge is to simplify everything for them by making everything more complicated at the end of the system. And when you don’t figure everything out the first time, bad things can happen. Yet instead of understanding that, Ron Howard and the gang are more interested in introducing the Klaus Schwab view of the world, removing shareholder capitalism from consideration and replacing it with stakeholder capitalism. Because when the state controls Boeing, as liberals plan to impose on them, there won’t be any expectation of profits from a Boeing stock. Instead, the value will be that people are working, subsidized by the state, of course, and that safety will be first, even if that means not building and delivering the planes to the market. To the socialists and communists of the world, the market can wait. After all, safety is the most important thing, even if that means that the rest of the world has to slow down to those limits and that they will learn to like it. Whenever a lefty suggests that Americans do things too fast and too recklessly, that is what they are really after. In the case of American business, it should make us all sick to our core because it’s not just an assault on a great American company, but an assault on us all and the greatest country on earth and their core beliefs.
