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.

Herbie was a Communist: Learning how our corporations in America were taken over by the United Nations

Herbie was a Communist

I had to write the book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business because I had read hundreds of self-help books and books on business strategy, administration, and process improvement, and they were all wrong in some little way.  Wrong is, of course, a point of view, but when we wonder why our companies have become so “woke,” we must understand why.  We must understand why the Chamber of Commerce types are so bent toward the United Nations and not the United States, and we must know how we arrived where we are, how to get out of it, and toward more of an America First policy.  One of the most important books that are most popular among process improvement consultants in business is called The Goal.  If you go into the office of most business consultants, you will find it in their libraries. It’s been out since the 1980s and has paralleled the Lean Manufacturing methods that have migrated out of Toyota Management Processes and TQCs and all kinds of Eastern business philosophy acronyms.  Through a combination of The Goal, and books like The Machine that Changed the World, which evolved out of Deming consulting in Japan, Americans have been tricked into going against their nature of innovation and aggression as a capitalist enterprise.  Out of a United Nations desire for accepting global commerce, global supply chains, and global thinking, these methods have been introduced to American business for all kinds of strictly political reasons.  Because of that trend, I felt there needed to be an American answer.  I have been teaching the methods talked about in all these books for over three decades, and given where the world is today, its time to point out the flaws in the thinking and assert ourselves in western civilization toward the objectives of retaking the leadership role in the world, from an America First perspective.

I enjoy The Goal; it is an excellent thought experiment for managers looking to improve their processes.  It can work fine if the only other alternative is chaos.  From my perspective, and this has always been my opinion of the work, it was a soft sell of communism to the corporate world from the author selling capitalism but functioning as a Marx-driven radical.  So, it’s no surprise that executives who read the book and study it in detail think they are performing as profit-driven capitalists. They are drooling communists tricked into a global conspiracy based on their lack of knowledge of history and global intentions.  The Goal is all about solving plant-wide manufacturing problems, but in essence, it’s about Constraint Theory, knowing your constraints, and working within those limits toward ultimate efficiency.  I have a radically different view of Constraint Theory than most everyone else in the world, especially people who practice consulting primarily because they don’t understand the essence of what a “constraint” is or what the history of acquiring it was. 

In The Goal, we are told a story about a bunch of Boy Scouts hiking a 10-mile trail, and among them is an overweight kid struggling to keep up with the others by the name of Herbie.  The story’s theme is that all the other hikers need to realize that Herbie is their constraint and that they should have been measuring what they can do as a group based on what Herbie could do. Otherwise, they were supposed to bend their processes to the limits of their weakest link.  So it is said in business, figure out who your “Herbie” is, and you’ll understand your actual capacity.  Well, this has always bothered me.  My way of dealing with the “Herbies” of life is to tell him to lose weight or find someone faster and more robust than he is to do the job.  But you see, what is taught in corporate politics is that Herbie isn’t to be discriminated against.  There are all kinds of woke rules to protect people like Herbie from being pushed out of their comfort zone.  Labor unions particularly seek out to employ people like Herbie, natural constraints that slow down a process.  Never is the emphasis on speeding something up.  So, by default, when corporate leaders read books like The Goal and The Machine that Changed the World, they believe that they are in the business of managing their constraints in diminishing increments.  Not to seek to improve those constraints.  But to live with them.

In a roundabout way, the government has brought communism into our corporate cultures in this way then used that compliance culture to attack our Constitutional parameters for which a society functions.  All “at will” employment thus falls under some form of communist control that we all accept in increments because most of us must work somewhere, and as we do, we lower our guard to these subtle attacks on our way of government on the front end.  Then in corporate culture, instead of hiring managers to improve the Herbies of the world, we hire managers and CEOs to mitigate against the compliance mandates that government imposes on us through excessive rules and regulations.  Now you can see why the Chamber of Commerce organizations across America were against any vaccine freedoms for individuals.  They wish to protect an organization’s ability to defend themselves from more government compliance by backdooring the American Constitution through a company’s HR department.  What makes my book different from all other books on this subject matter is that I specifically deal with these kinds of challenges because nobody I have read has ever gone to these levels of thinking on the issue.  It’s one thing to identify your constraints and, in using Lean Manufacturing, getting everyone in an organization to understand what reality is.  But in The Goal, determining reality is accepting that Herbie is an overweight kid who has a hard time walking 10 miles on a hike.  But my attitude is that Herbie needs to lose the weight to keep up with the other kids on that hike.  The faster kids who can walk the 10 miles should not be penalized.  That is why The Goal is communist propaganda, whether it was intended to be or not. 

Nobody, especially most Chambers of Commerce, wants to think of themselves as communists.  They think of communists as authoritarian overlords in a military uniform in some broke Central American countries or failed Russia.  But the way the work of Karl Marx drove communism survived into this new age remix was to appear as a capitalist boon but to use the mask of global trade and global partnerships to spread communism around the world, as they had always planned.  Just change the name of communism to capitalism and make it appear that the effort was to increase profits, not to hinder productivity by giving the means of production over to the government to control. You have your modern scam unfolded before you.  And I intend to show people how to get out of that mess.  It’s not easy to change the culture of something so embedded in our thoughts and actions.  But that’s what The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business does.  The Herbie story is just the tip of the iceberg.   It goes much deeper than what we’ve talked about here.  But it’s a start.

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.

Covid was Always a Plan for the Great Reset: Who knew what and when, the timeline of the crime against America

The Covid Timeline toward the Great Reset

Like most magic tricks, the actual gag is pulled off away from the eyes and ears of the audience.  And the Pandemic with Covid as the star is no different.  We have been debating the death counts, which have no connection to reality as deaths are usually measured.  The government wants for some mysterious reason to use those death counts to drive panic.  Why?  The talk has been about vaccine mandates.  The talk has been in masks, social distancing, and control over the economy.  Control over the vote.  But when real medical options are presented, they have been slapped away as conspiracy and even dangerous.  As the year and a half monstrosity of authoritarianism has progressed, we now know that Dr. Fauci’s NHI had directed funds to “gain of function” research at the Wuhan lab that produced Covid-19.  Even more, we now know that Covid was made in a lab, deliberately tampered with to make it more transmissible among humans.  Why?  We can only speculate based on our experience, but something has always been very wrong with Covid and the government’s strange obsession with it.  I would call it terrorism by the government, just as bad as 9/11 or any hostile act we have ever seen as an attack on our country.  I would call it a declaration of war by China on American capitalism.  But you don’t have to take my word for it.  Just follow the facts, and they will tell you all you need to know about Covid and the world’s governments using it to grab power for themselves and hide crimes they had been committing to enriching themselves, which were always meant to shield them from justice.

As I said in the video above, I called the Covid pandemic an act of terrorism from the outset.  I follow politics closely, the way many people follow Fantasy Football picks, so I remember how it was in December going into 2020 from 2019.  My wife and I were in a highly crowded Orlando airport waiting out a flight delay.  There were people from all over the globe practically sitting on top of each other, waiting for their flights to catch up due to bad weather.  I was desperately trying to find a quiet place to make an overseas call with some clients.  It was frustrating, and tempers were flaring.  As I was on the call, I watched the television hanging from the ceiling covering world news reports.  Socialists and communists worldwide were worried about the election year coming up in America and what could be done to remove Trump from office.  At that time, Nancy Pelosi was trying to make the second impeachment of Trump stick, but it wasn’t going anywhere with the call with Ukraine.  Trump didn’t do anything wrong, but they were trying to harm him so that voters would remove him from office.  But it wasn’t working.  There were zero talks about Covid 19, and I was in a highly high-risk zone in an airport.  There were direct flights from China and lots of Chinese people visiting Disney World.  But there were no masks, no social distancing, and no government interference.  Everyone eventually found their flights and lived happily ever after, and lived

A month later on Netflix, I noticed a strange docuseries called Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak, which would tell the same story of what Covid-19 would become.  The series came out on January 22nd.  News reporters started talking about Covid-19 cases about that precise time, and Trump’s quick reaction to it was to ban flights from China to stop the spread.  I laughed when I saw it and told my wife that the report was likely just as Orson Wells had done with War of the Worlds radio when he had scared everyone into thinking that an alien invasion was happening.  I said that the media was trying to draw attention to the Netflix series, and that’s all it was.  I watched the series, and it even covered the vaccine debate, whether or not governments should force people to get vaccines for disease control.  All the panic was driven by people like Bill Gates and their sponsored Event 201, which had just simulated a coronavirus outbreak that had taken place in October of 2019, just before my wife and I had taken our vacation to Orlando.  By the time we had the Super Bowl in the United States and moved into February. The Senate did not remove Trump from office after that second impeachment; the world went into overdrive with coronavirus using daily stories and death counts to essentially simulate everything that had been talked about in the Netflix show.  It was almost as if they were following a script.  It was no longer War of the Worlds on the radio where Orson Wells had to calm a public he had driven to panic.  This was a Plan B if the House failed to impeach President Trump to use coronavirus to cheat the 2020 election and get rid of him.  That way, as the following weeks would show, the lockdowns and CDC measures were all about changing our society in preparation for the Great Reset, as intended by The World Economic Forum, which then points back to the origins of Covid-19, who knew what, and when. 

As Ohio went into lockdown mode by the middle of March and I talked to several House and Senate members knocked on their heels by what Governor Mike DeWine was doing, I learned that DeWine had been asking for special dictatorial powers the previous year for just such an emergency as Covid.  Well, that was interesting.  What conferences was he in which would let him know that something like Covid was coming? We’ve all lived a long time and never saw anything like Covid before, so why would DeWine be asking to be emperor of Ohio under pandemic emergencies essentially.  The legislature, of course, denied him of that effort. Still, under the new CDC guidelines, DeWine was one of the first governors to go, full dictator, paving the way for the mess the blue state governors would place on people the rest of the year, dragging out the Covid narrative until after the election.  Then once Joe hiding in his basement Biden was president, Covid could magically go away, and the Democrats would get the credit for managing the made-up pandemic and steer America into the Great Reset making all the socialists and communists of the world happy. 

But things didn’t quite work out; the Biden administration found that people were not accepting his presidency. The more they tried to implement Great Reset politics, the more Americans hated him. The jobs reports were disasters, and inflation was creeping up, driving up costs for everything.  Just a few months in the Biden administration, people thought they would have an easy time of it, collapsing America and “Building Back Better.” But a series of disasters like Afghanistan, the Open Border problems, the continued stories of money from China going to Biden shown on the famous laptop wouldn’t go away.  More evidence that Dr. Fauci was involved with China creating Covid-19 as a bioweapon to destroy the American economy wouldn’t disappear.  So the Biden people pulled Covid-19 off the shelf and tried to play the game again to hide all their missteps, which is where we are today.  They want us to look at everything except what’s going on, which is obvious now.  But what’s not so obvious is who knew what and when did they know it.  We understand that the Pandemic was planned, Netflix made a show about it to sell the idea of government control to the public essentially.  We know Event 201 was on lots of people’s minds and that members of the media were being coached on it so that when it was decided to pick a virus and use it as the Great Reset, everyone would know the script.  But how did Mike DeWine know that he needed to ask for absolute power the year before, even before the Netflix show?  How many people like him were told what was coming and why they kept it a secret? 

Well, what we do know was that Covid-19 was not an accident.  It was purposeful terrorism meant to change our way of life and control a new authority class.  The perpetrators planned to scare innocent people into giving away their freedoms in exchange for safety. It was an act of terror that far surpasses anything ever attempted on planet earth.  And all those who were involved, even the planners of the Netflix series, need to be brought to justice for their role in the mess.  We are not talking about people with good, health-saving intentions as they have attempted to disguise themselves.  We are talking about malicious terrorists who would do anything and everything to gain more power and hide much more severe crimes from the eyes of the curious.  And what we do know now is that there was intent to commit these vast crimes, which is where a corruption investigation would begin.  That intent was forecasted well in advance.  The world, the people who wanted to launch the “Great Reset,” wanted Trump out of the way, and they tried to stuff all of us in our homes so that they could cheat the election and make it happen.  They didn’t care about American law since they were foreign actors seeking to overthrow our nation, so committing election fraud was no big deal to them.  They had paid off enough politicians like Mike McConnell to get away with it, so they didn’t care.  And they hid their crimes and intent to commit those crimes behind Covid-19.  They created a panic to give them cover for the removal of a president.  And they built the bioweapon to cooperate with China, who would be the fall guy if anybody ever found out about it.  But the funding for the project came from Dr. Fauci himself, a plant in the White House who laughed at Trump behind his back because he knew what the gig was and what role he played in it.  And from there, the rest is up to us.  We know what happened, but what are we going to do about it tomorrow?  Remember, the terrorists of the world wanted Trump out of the way so they could get away with the Great Reset.  It was always about that, and they used Covid to mask their actions.

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.

China is at War with America: Through their guilt, we see their footprints in the wet paint

The Way China Fights War

The first thing people must understand about war is that for most people, they barely notice.  For instance, during the American Revolution, it was just a few miles to the north of Philadelphia. Americans and British offers commingled at parties and other social events just as Washington’s troops froze at their encampment in Valley Forge.  The residence of Philadelphia primarily played both sides so they could survive whoever eventually won the war.  Just as we see now with the American war with China, it’s an undeclared war, and that’s the way China wants it.  There is a lot of commingling because ordinary people know they need to survive and find a way to appease whoever wins.  And currently, most people, as they did with England during the Revolution, are planning for China to succeed.  So they play along to get along.  There is still open trade between the countries; there are still ownerships that extend between the nations.  The war that China wants to have with America is not one with troops and tanks but in culture.  Their strategy is to replace our culture with their own, so they plan to convince those average people to embrace their culture gradually and through that means to undo America and replace it with Chinese communism. China’s premier book on strategy, The Art of War, lays it all out for everyone to see.  They don’t mean to be friends with us or anyone in the West.  They intend to conquer us and rule over us, implementing their culture at all costs. 

Warfare changed in the world the moment that the radio was invented.  World War II and the various conflicts in the east and Mideast involving communism were carryovers, but war changed.  Before mass communication around the world, which we have today, the goal was to use sheer force to force an opponent into capitulation.  Now, such a surrender of culture can occur through the media, which is why China has invested so heavily into buying up American media and using it to shape our opinions against American capitalism and toward Chinese communism.  Since most of us think of war as planes, tanks, missiles, and troops, we never declared war formally because the war with China has always been about other kinds of means to instigate a capitulation.  Remember the power of Voice of America during the Cold War.  By sending in media to the U.S.S.R from the United States, considerably eroded everyday citizens belief in communism and caused a massive erosion in support for the mother government.  Combined with the outrageous spending Russia involved themselves in to keep up with Reagan’s military buildup, it crushed the nation and communism from that part of the world. 

China and many others worldwide have studied that playbook and are attempting to use it against America.  They have loaned us money to control our debt obligations.  They have purchased property in America to have a vested interest in what goes on in our country.  They have a massive spy network of honeypots raised from unwanted little girls in their culture to subvert the politics of our republic.  They have been hard at work for decades, infiltrating our institutions and bending them toward communism at every turn.  I often tell the story of the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana, where one of their most significant exhibits is essentially a brochure for China and their eventual domination of the world’s markets.  The exhibit essentially states, “China will be the next world superpower; better get on board.” People have gradually accepted this to be accurate, making the conquest that much easier. 

The primary strategy they wish to provoke against us is frustration in our republic form of government.  We have designed our way of government in America to work slow, not get in the way of business and commerce too much.  That is one of the keys to our fantastic GDP.  Government works too slow to get into the form of our economic engine.  But communists want to show how efficient a central party rule can be if they go total authoritarian.  Where decisions are made by a few people and are imposed on everyone else without debate.  China wants to tie up our courts; they want to see Republicans fighting Democrats.  They want to see our media in chaos because they want to see our internal strife bringing down capitalism from these forces they have infected with their ideas so that the collapse comes from within, giving them plausible deniability. 

But things have not been good on the China front; they have been caught tampering with our elections in America because they went too far with their tampering.  They don’t care to break American laws.  But in their haste, China has left behind their footprints in the paint they have surrounded themselves with into a corner.  And of course, they have been caught on Covid-19, a manufactured virus they produced in the now-famous Wuhan lab with Dr. Fauci.  They have tried to contain the story with their global media partners of Google and Facebook, but the story has gotten out, just as the information did back in the days of Voice of America. News still gets out, and China has its hands on all kinds of duplicitous activity.  America can’t afford to call them out on it because of our debts, because China has the goods on so many of our politicians and their relationships to the spy network.  There has been a lot of commingling.  I pointed out that during the Revolution, Benedict Arnold was one of Washington’s favorite generals.  But during all that commingling with the British officers, Arnold met a nice girl very sympathetic to England.  So out of love or lust, or both, he betrayed Washington and fought on the side of the English.  It happens all the time.  The only thing that has changed is the way we fight.  Not the intent of the fight.  Many in our present congress have had such relationships, and they are compromised to China, and they can’t fight back, not anymore.  Their hearts are not clean. 

Yet never confuse the matter, the Chinese want to show how slow our republic form of government is and how fast their communist government can act because the flaw in their belief is that government can produce.  That is the failure of all Marxist ideologies.  Marx never figured out that centralized authority could not force fairness on people while still producing on a mass scale.  Marxism never accounted for the personal autonomy of individual free will.  America discovered that and developed it in its own unique way, and the communist government of China knows it cannot win face to face.  They have had to resort to all this double-dealing and internal insurrection as their only means to accomplish their objective.  One of the reasons their mistakes have increased, and they have been exposed is because the Trump economy was threatening to get too far in front of them, destroying their goals of becoming the world’s most dominant economy.  So, they had to take out Trump and did anything they could to do so, starting with the manufactured Covid virus and the election fraud that we are now seeing on the various electronic voting machines around America during the last election.  Ultimately, they plan to capitalize on people’s hatred of Joe Biden, a president they put in place, and to shove Americans toward communism for a solution to all the dysfunction they hear about in the news, much of which is now owned by corporate media loyal to the Chinese change state.  And that is where we are, at war with China and their intent to rule the world with communism.  And nothing else.

The Proof of Fake News: Corporate Media shows its cards and intent to destroy America

I am very good friends with several people in the arena who are legislators in state and federal House and Senate positions.  I am also very good friends with people who consider themselves Sovereign Citizens and are so upset with the corporate takeover of America that they renounced their citizenship and exist as “non-people.” I understand their arguments; they have tried to recruit me to their cause many times, declaring that all the property we own doesn’t really belong to us, but to this global corporate cabal, which we have seen emerge out into the open since President Trump was in the White House and was driven out by election fraud in 2020.  Based on what we learned from the Maricopa County, Arizona election audit, we can easily say now there is more than enough proof that fraud was committed on such a scale to insert Joe Biden and remove President Trump illegally.  This has only fed the argument of those who believe as the Sovereign Citizens do.  Of course, the next step in the process is that they’ll take back their property at will, our homes, our cars, our jobs.  But as I’ve told my friends, both up and down the political spectrum, I’ll stand and fight my ground to protect my property.  My property is my property, end of story.  I don’t share.  I do not recognize any global power or any corporate alliance.  When I wrote my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, I had all these kinds of people in mind.  Corporate structures can be brought down and disabled, so don’t be afraid of them.  They should instead be afraid of you. Don’t feed them with your fear. 

Yet, I could only think of the Sovereign Citizen argument about corporate structure in the wake of what we learned from Maricopa County in Arizona.  I wondered how or if Fox News would even cover it, which they didn’t much.  Even Sean Hannity kept his shows focused on the border crises and not the election fraud because it was a corporate decision not to open that can of worms, which existed whether anybody acknowledged it or not.  Instead, all the news outlets covered was that Biden gained more votes in the recount than in the original count.  Everyone from CBS News, ABC, Fox, and CNN all covered the Maricopa County results in the same way, pointing to the corporate conspiracy that Alex Jones and the Sovereign Citizens are always talking about.  They say that the corporate cabal is run by a band of demonic hellhounds using the blood ritual of abortion to fuel their evil menace across the earth.  I might otherwise squint with a description like that, but suddenly, it made more sense than any other explanation for the obvious cover-up that mass media was engaged in. 

It’s one thing to say that all news that you disagree with is fake news.  But here, we had obvious evidence that anybody paying attention to could see was an obvious cover-up.  All the news outlets who deliberately tried to mislead their viewers with a faulty count of illegal ballots participated in a crime against America; it was sedition and treason at best, and many worse things.  And it pointed back to the Sovereign Citizen position that nothing we have is ours, that corporate stakeholders could call in our debts anytime they want and enslave us to their will.  And they simply no longer recognized America as anything sovereign.  They didn’t care about our Constitution.  They didn’t care about us.  They were all signed up to this global view of things and were going to take us all there kicking and screaming if need be, and there was nothing we could do about it.  Patriotic Americans did not own these corporate media types after all.  They could care less what happened to America.  They had sold us all out long ago, and the way they covered and participated in election fraud during the 2020 election was proof, all the evidence we needed. 

I waited for a few days after the results were announced to see how the coverage played out. Still, by the middle of the following week, no mainstreamers talked about the election fraud case in Maricopa County, Arizona.  It was, after all, the biggest story in the world, yet nobody wanted to acknowledge it.  The argument that it was a partisan audit was tossed around, but what is happening when primarily Democrats run the elections in blue cities? Isn’t that partisan?  But arguing that the Arizona audit was conducted by conservatives only opens the door to ask whether we should allow Democrats to run any aspect of an official election.  Based on that assumption, we have a lot to talk about regarding what we know.  Yet nobody wanted to discuss the matter where people get their news the most.  Instead, all topics were about getting the jab, about Covid, about the border crises, all of which were problems created by the Biden administration to essentially direct our attention from the real crimes at hand, election fraud that they knowingly participated in to undermine our republic.

It’s one thing to be angry at the media because they don’t cover what we think they should, but election fraud is an issue everyone should be concerned with because there isn’t a country without voter integrity.  And maybe that’s the point. Instead, it’s the most logical point.  Alex Jones and the Sovereign Citizens have been right about that acquisition all along; most of what we see and hear is controlled by a corporate entity for the ownership of some unseen bosses.  But I would say that we don’t have to accept that.  Honestly, we own this country, not some corporate pinheads showing themselves only at Davos every year.  And if anybody thinks they are going to take anything from me, well, that works both ways.  I can break the rules too.  We all can.  We will not be conquered by many corporate hacks using the rules to steal our country and our wealth while we comply and stay in the lane following the rules they gave us.  If they break election law, they deserve to be prosecuted.  Because we either have law and order, or we don’t. 

What we learned from Maricopa County was extremely valuable.  It convinced me that Joe Biden was not elected.  Take away all the emotion, and the facts of the audit speak for themselves.  There were illegal votes counted.  Votes made up in a Wal-Mart parking lot in the back of a van by a couple of dope-smoking losers don’t count.  Dead people can’t vote.  People can’t vote twice.  You can’t tamper with evidence by hacking the voting machines the day before an audit and expect everyone to be OK with it.  Any one of these would have flipped Arizona from Biden to Trump, and everyone in the media knows it.  Yet they all chose the same lie, even Fox News.  And we are better off knowing it now because when you are fighting a hidden enemy who refuses to show themselves in the light of day, this is the way to smoke them out into the open.  And by doing what they did, they are out in the open.  They exist beyond speculation and conspiracy theory.  We can see their network and the menace they intend for our country.

All Red Flag Laws Are Government Overreach: While everyone was looking at the loser Biden, legislators have snuck them into the NDAA Bill

All Read Flag Laws are Government Overreach

About ten years ago, I warned everyone about the National Defense and Authorization Act, in how it was meant to trample all over the Bill of Rights under the guise of emergency power.  This NDAA thing told that any time the military needed to get control of something the government deemed was an out-of-control situation, they could then use the NDAA to suspend the Constitutional rights of anybody and get things under control.  In theory.  The NDAA was always a bridge too far. It was sold to us as patriotic, just as Homeland Security was, and it lingers in the background of about everything that happens domestically involving the military.  My position on things is that I support the military so long as they are fighting for the Constitution.  But when they become the enemy under an oppressive government, such as the one that we have presently with China running the Biden administration, then that’s where you don’t want the military to have too many domestic teeth.  This is why we should never have let it happen in the first place.  Now, to my points in the past, there is a 1300-page bill passing through the House and Senate installing red flag laws that many Republicans have signed on to.  Even the NRA has had a weak position on this red flag problem.  So, while everyone is looking at the chaos of the Biden administration and election theft by foreign antagonizers, a power grab by the government and the military is happening right under our noses. 

Red flag laws are reprehensible.  They allow peer pressure to run the world essentially.  Before Covid, people might have had a hard time understanding, but it’s what’s happening with the masks.  Demanding people to wear a mask or take a vaccine is unconstitutional by every measure of the law.  So to get around that law, the government encourages peers to tattle on each other to force compliance that the government has no right to conduct.  When it comes to gun ownership under red flag laws, if you don’t wave at your neighbor the way they think you should, or if you don’t take care of a member of your extended family the way they want, they could call up the government hotline and report you as a danger to yourself or others.  Then the government could come to your home in theory and confiscate your guns “for your own good.” Just as Obama did, the Biden administration has been trying to use every mass shooting as an excuse to unleash red flag laws as a power grab.  When the fundamental problem of mass shootings is likely related to marijuana use, the red flag intends to provoke mental instability into government control over a person’s essence in society.  If “they” (potential mass shooters)  cannot be trusted, they must be watched and managed as a menace to others. 

The government has been trying to get people to accept this line of thought with Covid by introducing the concept that what you do might be a danger to others as a premise.  Once we accept that concept, then red flag laws come next.  Even Mike DeWine of Ohio, who was supposed to be a Republican, favored red flag laws after a Dayton nightclub shooting that occurred not that long ago.  The kid who did the shooting was a drug-using loser from the political left.  But DeWine ignored all that and went for a constitutional violation of all gun owner’s property rights.  Like Covid, he showed that he was more inclined to centralized government authority than to protect individual rights.  And that’s the real danger when we give the government the power to manage a situation on their own and aren’t driven by the inclination of the vote.  The misinterpretation of their abilities and timidity can then trample the rights of the people they are supposed to represent.  As a little fellow, DeWine may be scared of viruses and other threats, but he does not have a right to impose his limited view of the world on those he was elected to govern. 

This latest red flag law is written in that NDAA update bill. If there is a concern over a gun owner, the issue is presented to a military tribunal. From there, the opinions of “experts” can then issue the mandate to confiscate the guns from a property owner.  Now the government would say that these are under emergency conditions where the military was involved.  Well, ten years ago, that might have sounded like science fiction where the government would shut down the Constitution and become a branch of local law enforcement, but then look what Governor DeWine did over Covid-19.  We did see a governor power-hungry and dystopian suddenly go all-in on complete tyranny.  The next time might be the next virus or even some other form of attack where the military takes over society and starts making demands on us.  Such an occasion could be a storm that knocks out the power grid leaving everyone without power.  Or it could be a political upheaval like we saw on January 6th, where people were upset over the election results, and for a good reason, upset.  The opposition party then decided that those people and their families were threats to their order, so they arrested them and put them in jail, warning their peers what the power of government could do to them.  Under those conditions of a Nancy Pelosi radicalism, such an NDAA provision on red flag laws could be implemented at that time. We’ve already seen the warning signs; it’s not very far-fetched to see how this little thing could become a big constitutional menace. 

As to what I would do if such a corrupt court of military officers came to my house, I won’t say directly. Instead, I would point to two books that I had written to express my motives when and if such a thing did happen.  One book that I wrote was specifically about this kind of abuse of authority, called Tail of the Dragon.  The other book I wrote a long time ago is called The Symposium of Justice.  Needless to say, if what the military or a governor or president does is not in the Constitution, I could care less what some skinny jean author of an NDAA bill slides into a massive 1300-page document.  It’s unconstitutional and a law that will be ignored and challenged in every way possible.  But for those still scared of it, I would remind everyone of the Battle of Wounded Knee, where the military was worried about the Lakota Sioux under Sitting Bull conducting Ghost Dances.

The government went to arrest Sitting Bull.  There was a massive shootout, and the government never lived it down.  If such a thing happened today among gun and militia groups, it would be much worse than Waco or Ruby Ridge.  Only, in the case of Sitting Bull, the Indians there was part of a dying race.  The MAGA supporters in the country between Washington D.C. and Los Angeles don’t have much tolerance for Biden and the Democrats.  The situation could quickly get out of hand, and the government couldn’t afford what would happen in the aftermath.  Any red flag law proposed is against the Constitution, so I’d say at this time, don’t let it distract you.  They might want to have complete control over us for their climbs to power.  We have seen in Covid that “experts” can’t be trusted, so there is a lot wrong with the NDAA concept that needs to be flushed out in the future.  And if the government has plans to abuse their authority, they will be met correctly.  We have guns to keep the government in check.  Not to surrender our freedoms to those drunk on power and of a timid nature unable to solve complicated problems.  They do not have a right to make their problems our problems.
