The Legality of Fake Vaccination Cards: People want freedom from any administrative state

Freedom from an Administrative State

When people say they want “freedom,” this next story represents the reason.  Freedom is more than a cliché; it’s a desire not to be limited to the restrictions of an administrative state that, through history, has shown time and time again to be corrosive to innovation, joy, and advancing society.  The less of any administrative state you have, the better a society and its people.  An administrative state only benefits the people running it, who are always in the extreme minority. It forces people to live within the limits of the weakest links in such a society.  So when people say they want freedom, they mean they don’t want an administrative state of losers running their life.  And that was never more obvious than in a story about Antonio Brown, a wide receiver for my favorite football team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Over the last week or so, one of his private cooks and a girlfriend of some kind leaked information that the fully vaccinated NFL football player was using a fake card to prove it and that he had bought it for $500.  Since that accusation, Brown and the Buccaneer staff had stood by his vaccination status; when Brown got the shot, a team member was with him to witness it.  The Buccaneers had complied by reviewing the vaccine cards to the NFL, which was doing the bidding of the Biden administration like nice little servents.  So there weren’t many teeth to the story to go anywhere, but it does bring up a whole host of problems that I had been thinking about myself.  Even if Antonio Brown did provide a fake card proving his vaccine status, so what?  What law did he break?  And why was it such a big deal causing the media to attempt to shame him into compliance with quite a lot of news generated?

I have personally witnessed hundreds of people getting the shot and the card at this point, so I’ve had some of these questions from the beginning of the process.  First, I have watched many people get the shot who immediately had terrible side effects from it.  They tell you when you get the shot to stay near the administrator for 10 minutes in case you pass out.  So getting this shot, even under forced government coercion, is the grounds for many, many lawsuits.  Watching the process over these many months, I would say it’s one of the cruelest things I’ve ever seen a government attempt to do to its people.  It’s terrible stuff because the government knows the vaccine is dangerous.  When they gave Joe Biden the shot on television, I do not believe that they really gave him the shot because it would have knocked him out for days, perhaps even killed him at his age.  I would not blame a professional athlete one bit for not wanting to get a vaccine shot and looking to get a fake vaccine card to prove it, to avoid the painful aftereffects of the vaccines that might ruin the season for them.  Professional athletes cannot afford to have their bodies shut down the way this vaccine does to people.  So my first thought about Antonia Brown’s actions for me was, “so what.” While the media made it sound like he had just murdered people with his “dishonesty.” 

Then again, watching all those people get the shots, then have some administrator pick up a card off a tall stack of little cardboard vaccine cards and scribble some dates, and the site of the administration as the proof of the event was shaky from day one.  That tiny, unextraordinary card was what the big deal was?  The first thought I had was that massive amounts of counterfeit cards would be shown as proof that they received the vaccine.  There was no traceability to the cards, and given the stakes, where it meant that some people wouldn’t be able to have their jobs if they didn’t have a card showing they had a vaccine, well, of course, they were going to cheat with a fake card filled out with some chicken scratch.  The Buccaneers as an organization said precisely what I had been thinking for months when they were pressed on the matter.  They reviewed Antonio Brown’s card and didn’t see any errors in it.  What were they supposed to check, a proper signature, the correct dates?  It wasn’t the Buccaneers responsibility to check the validity of the cards themselves, just that people had them.  So the government, in all its administrative wisdom, issued this massive mandate with considerable costs to people in their health and livelihoods. Yet, they had no way to know if people had received vaccines or not, based on a stupid, standard piece of cardboard that a child could copy and fill out as proof.  Yet, that was precisely the case. 

I remember how hard it was to get a fake ID when I was younger, showing that people were over 21 when they were only 18 or 19.  Back then, it was perfectly justified to make a fake ID because all the hot girls were looking for older guys who could take them to places 21 and over.  So as a guy, you had to have a fake ID to play the game; the government didn’t know what it was doing when it changed the drinking age from 18 to 21 as I was coming to those ages, so people had to survive like every culture where there is an overly administrative state, a black-market forms.  China has a big one, as do all totalitarian governments, because people want the freedom to do what they need to do in life and when governments come up with too many rules based on their own personal limitations, law-breaking will become a dominant recreational activity.  I knew some sharp cookies who made fake IDs, and they made good livings providing them.  These vaccine cards were not even close to being as challenging to make.  Anybody could make a proof of vaccine card, so given the political climate, there was no question to my mind that there was going to be massive fraud in providing the cards. 

Yet even worse, the government obviously hadn’t thought about any of that as they clamped down on people with Executive Orders and tried to scare everyone into compliance.  Nothing about the vaccine mandates was constitutional, the government got caught breaking the law themselves by implementing such a thing, and the Buccaneers knew it as an organization.   They played along with the made-up rules, but it wasn’t their job to investigate whether Antonio Brown got the shot as the card showed he did on the dates they showed he received them.  It was their job to collect the cards and demonstrate compliance to an out-of-control government and the woke NFL that wanted to bend the knee to an administrative state so they could stay in business.  There were so many things wrong with the whole process that the path of least resistance always has the answer, come up with a fake card and shut everyone up.  There was no legal authority. The government could not enforce any breaking of the rules because they made up the rules like some playground kid making them up as the game was being played, and that’s what the government gets for its gross overreach.  When they force people to comply with their dumb rules, people will find a way to break those rules so they can live life.  And that is the kind of freedom that we all talk about in these kinds of circumstances.  People want to be free of being bothered by this kind of administrative state overreach.  The more rules people have to live under, the more rules they will have to break to live life, and that is the reality that the administrative state of any kind has never admitted to itself.

I Support Josh Mandel for the Ohio Senate: It’s all about making elevator rides uncomfortable

I Support Josh Mandel for Ohio Senate

The upcoming senate race for Ohio to replace the Rob Portman seat is coming up fast.  There were some good elections in 2021, but that’s all behind us now.  It’s time to go or get off the pot for endorsing someone for the Ohio Senate Race of 2022.  I like many of the candidates; I think they all have some great attributes.  The key to something like this, which still has many months of campaigning, is to pick the person who will best serve that seat a few years from now, not necessarily where politics is presently.  And I think, especially after reading The Nixon Conspiracy by Geoff Shepard and The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., that the political world of tomorrow will be much different than what it has been over the past decade.  Picking candidates for the climate we are coming into is essential because the political terrain will be robust with political stunts, media hype, and the ability to shame candidates on the senate floor and still ride the elevator back to the parking garage after.  It’s not going to be for the political lite but rather those who can most withstand betrayal and scandal and support the Trump America First Agenda without hesitation. And my pick to be that guy is Josh Mandel. 

I like Jane Timken a lot, but after meeting with her a few times and watching her campaigning now for several months, she’s too conventional. She’s a bridge-builder, and we’re talking about a senate that needs to get rid of people like Mitch McConnell in the leadership and who will instantly harass Chuck Schumer right out of the gate.  Even sitting in the bathroom stall, they need to shame all the comfortable senate members like Lindsey Graham.  Retaking the Senate as a Republican majority is a war, including even the RINOs who are there now who have not been protecting the American Constitution the way they need to.  Jane talks about herself being a fighter, and I think she is, perhaps for some time in the past or the future.  But not for the 2022 race extending past 2025. She’s just too nice for that environment, for what has to be done.  I have nothing against her, she has done an excellent job with the Republican Party in Ohio, and I think she can work the Trump endorsement that she no doubt would get once the primary is over. Still, she’s just too conventional to excite people into action.  

The other guy I had been rooting for whom I was happy to meet is J.D. Vance.  His problem is that he was a Never Trumper, and in a Trump-heavy election, that is coming back to bite him.  He has a lot of money pouring in to support him, a lot of the big conventional money would rather have a Trump hater than a Trump copy, so J.D. Vance is raising a lot of money and has a shot to keep things close.  But what it comes down to is he’s too nice of a guy.  Like Jane, he might make a great senator in a different time when people played nicely together, and a legislative agenda was more important.  But these are not those times; what matters is America First and nothing else, and the ability to fight with peers on the senate floor the way Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene are in the House.  Radicals have overtaken the Democrat Party, I would say for the last 40 or 50 years. 

The masks of communism are off now, but the radicalism is deep in their culture, especially as it extends into the media and global investment brokers.  To undo all that, it will take a lot of political theater and members on the Hill who will write legislation endorsed by the Trump White House and fight for it on the floor, perhaps even physically.  It’s not what you see on TV that anybody must worry about; it’s what happens in the halls, the offices, and during the commute that requires aggression and boisterousness.  The Democrats are the enemy, and the fight has to be taken to them.  J.D. Vance is a nice guy who does pretty well on Tucker Carlson and can come up with some one-liners.  But when it comes to fighting, he’s not the guy for the battlefield.  Like I said, maybe during a different time.    

The rest of them in the field, such as Mike Gibbons, are to the left of J.D. and Jane, and I don’t consider them relevant in this race.  They may make some noise, but they don’t have what it takes for this Senate seat that essentially needs to pressure Sharrod Brown’s supporters to fall off the earth.  None of this hand-holding that Rob Portman has started with the Brown camp is what Ohio voters have been wanting.  Democrat progressives need to be destroyed.  There were three things that Josh Mandel did that solidified my opinion about him.  He worked with Darby Boddi at Lakota in gaining the support of the growing number of angry moms there, and he did a fantastic job on 55 KRC with Brian Thomas to talk about it. I personally spoke to Josh at a Republican event privately and on stage in front of a really big audience with big-time Republican members in the audience such as Jim Jordan and Frank LaRose, about his commitment to the election fraud that robbed Trump of the Executive Branch in 2020.  And the third thing was an event at the Solid Rock Church in Monroe where he had the Tea Party religious right showing great support.  He appeared on stage with Jena Ellis from the Trump legal team and was very evangelical.  Now, that particular assemblage of the electorate is only about 30% of the total conservative vote, but they are passionate, and when they are winning, they are contagious.  When Trump gives out endorsements in the summer of 2022 after this primary race is over, it’s going to be Trump for Renacci for governor and Mandel for Senate, and these people will be the ground troops who fill the crowds. 

When people wonder if Josh Mandel can win the general election, as he obviously can win the primary, the answer to that will be yes.  Even though he will come across as weak and vulnerable in a general election to Democrats and media members, the people who actually vote will put everything on the table for a hard-core Trump supporter, especially as Trump does many campaign stops in Ohio during that election season.  Any scandal that follows Josh Mandel around, as he is a little on the wild side, won’t matter just as it hasn’t for Trump.  Mandel will have the evangelicals, and they will be his foot soldiers to success.  People in Ohio will vote for someone attached to Trump’s hip, and none of the candidates in this race has more openly embraced Trump than Josh Mandel by sticking to the election fraud issue more.  Trump will reward Josh with an open endorsement as he will be campaigning for Renacci anyway.  At that point in the race, the other candidates would be nowhere near as exciting to Ohio voters as someone who isn’t afraid of political stunts and sticking to them when the pressure is most significant.  And when it comes to taking the fight to the Senate floor in Washington D.C. I asked Josh the same thing. I asked the other candidates how prepared they were for the battle to come.  Only Josh Mandel gave me the correct answer about actually showing light in his eyes when the talk of fighting liberals personally and directly came up.  And I’m convinced that with Josh Mandel, there will be many uncomfortable elevator rides for the opposition in the years to come.

Liberals Only Want to Boss People Around: The mental illness of the Democrat Party

People Who are Obsessed with Bossing You Around Tend to be Democrats

Without question, especially after Thanksgiving dinner with family members, some that you may only see a few times a year, politics is always that unsatisfied topic that burns in the back of all our minds.  We have been taught that we shouldn’t talk about politics or religion even though both dominate our lives and thoughts almost exclusively.  And the losers who spread that bad advice to us were liberals who encouraged us to avoid a conflict at the dinner table or living rooms of our homes from people who may be liberal in our lives.  So in the same fashion that we see prosecutorial misconduct among liberal prosecutors or religious ideologies, like “climate change” coming at us with blinding speed, we are not supposed to engage it or talk about it. Instead, we are supposed to talk about Blue Pill stuff like sports or Black Friday sales and hope to avoid talking about supply chain problems caused by an illegal president Biden with a big-government approach that has crippled our economy and put China on a pedestal for world domination.  So in that way, we never talk about the solution to the world’s real problems; we just learn to put up with it, which has empowered them into all sorts of destructive behavior.  Yet, there is a reason we are uncomfortable with these political rules of our day because the rules themselves mask something we all know and feel about the matter, which demands a resolution.  And it all points back to what I always say about liberalism; it’s a mental illness that needs a psychological fix, not an understanding of fairness on the battlefield of ideas.  Liberalism, because of its severe disfunction in nature, shouldn’t even be on the battlefield. 

One thing that all liberals have in common is that they like to boss people around.  We obviously have seen this with Covid and the government’s reaction to it.  Blue state governors have been the worst, and those who want to tell people what to do have heard the dog whistle.  They have acted like that big brother who is babysitting all of us and wants to essentially be the parent out of control with power telling us where to go, when to wash our hands, when to go to bed, when to eat, change clothes, even what to watch on television.  They are obsessed with telling us what to do about everything.  And now that they have captured through all types of political theater, they have the congress, the senate, and the White House at the federal level; they are out of control.  It’s not that the power went to their heads; it’s that they needed power so much that they were willing to do anything to get it.

Another thing I say all the time is that the number one thing that people are most concerned with in life is their status on the pecking order with their peers.  Adults, more than anything, want to climb the social ladder of power and prestige among their peers more to satisfy their insecurities about their meaning of life-based on how it was taught to them as children. You’re born, you do what your parents tell you, what society tells you, and you gain power so that you can acquire the ability to do that eventually to other members of society.  If you work hard, you might become a powerful politician or CEO of some company, and people will respect you and do what you tell them.  Really, when it comes down to it, liberalism, in varying degrees, is one of the most destructive elements of any society, and it can be measured based on how much people want to boss you around.  The more conservative a person truly is, the less they like to tell other people what to do.  The more liberal, the more they want to boss people around. 

But it doesn’t stop in politics such as “elected office.” Still, it extends into every aspect of our lives, such as the nosy neighbor who is always calling the neighborhood association about some flag you might be flying that might bring down property values.  Or the slow person in the fast lane on the highway who travels under the speed limit because they intend to slow you down for what they perceive as safe conduct.  We see it with the mask police now in stores.  We see it in the places we work where some ladder climber boss is always there to tell us when to use the restroom or take a break.   It’s not enough to call someone who thinks they are conservative a RINO if they claim to be Republicans but have the psychological problem of always wanting to tell people what to do all the time.  We have to identify the mental illness for what it is, some form of liberalism that has migrated in name to the current state of severe mental dysfunction. 

The real quandary for many of these people and why their psychological disorder is so destructive to the world around them is that the essence of their behavior is that they must live off the efforts of others.  That is why they want to boss people around because they actually need the efforts of others to survive. After all, deep inside, they lack the courage to do things on their own.  So they make themselves part of the world around them as a figure of authority to mask their own timidity.  And if they appear to be in charge of the pecking orders of our existence, they can hide their most profound insecurities.  So when we find ourselves at some social gathering and there are always these micromanagement types who start telling us we have to take our shoes off to enter a room, or to tell us where to sit, what to eat, how to dress, and so on, avoiding talking about politics only makes the problem worse.  It allows these loser people to live free of judgment while abusing the world with their psychological disorders.  By avoiding discussion about their ailment, it never gets fixed, which isn’t good for anybody.  One of the reasons I wrote The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business was to help people deal with the tyrants in their lives.  It may not be Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi who are the worst; it might be some nosy aunt or peeping neighbor going through your trash.  It might be a boss who goes out of their way to harass you so they can remind you that they are your means to a living, and you have to do what they say.  It might be the little Cartman mall cop or the latest local health department newly empowered by the CDC to ruin our lives in their effort to tell more people what to do.  But what it all amounts to is that the desire to boss people around is an illness of the mind, not something that should be respected or even dealt with as a legitimate manner of public conduct.  We don’t need to treat liberals with equality and understanding.  We need to get them help in insane asylums because that’s where they belong.  Not believing they are equal or above us on some invisible pecking order.  They are not our “betters.” They are malcontents and damaged people who need treatment, not a pass of the gravy and a tight lip uttered under sports scores.

AFPI is Something to be Thankful For: Trump and the Pilgrims of Robert Cushman

Never forget Robert Cushman

What am I most thankful for on this Thanksgiving of 2021?  Well, it’s something I said last year would be happening when I said not to fret, not to despair over lying hiding, Joe Biden.  That Trump was still the president as far as I was concerned and that he didn’t need to be in the White House to act in that fashion.  Instead, he could run the country from his Winter White House down in Mar-a-Lago, which is what he has spent the last year doing.  And the result has been the creation of the America First Policy Institute, a collection of like-minded people intent to make an America First agenda the policy of the United States for many years to come.  This is, of course, something that you probably didn’t hear about in the media, so I have included a few videos from them in this article for context.  Needless to say, I am very thankful to see them emerge as a political powerhouse that will shape all future elections and build on the more than 75 million voters who voted for President Trump in the last election who have been ignored, scandalized, and tormented ruthlessly since President Biden was put in place to protect the swamp and all the deals made there from draining the filth the way we have wanted to do for a long time.

I’ve been talking about shadow banning more lately because I have been thinking a lot about the AFPI.  I came to know about them because I joined in Big Tech’s Trump lawsuit, which I essentially view as criminal conduct.  Google doesn’t own the internet, nor does Facebook or Twitter.  Yet, they have acted like it.  The internet is essentially a public utility that our government developed for our use.  Google doesn’t own it, yet I have become one of the most shadow-banned people on the internet.  Considering how much content I have provided over the last decade, I should be getting millions of hits per week on my work. Instead, it’s just hundreds, or thousands, depending on what’s going on.  The only real people who see my content are subscribers, as search engines deliberately shut me off from the world.  It’s pretty ostentatious, to be honest. I’m not one to cry about it, but when I had to fill out my paperwork for the lawsuit, it brought it all to my mind just how mad I have been about it.  If it were simply a competition issue, I wouldn’t care.  But this is a free speech issue over a public utility, and these companies that I didn’t elect have chosen to disrupt the operation of our republic toward political positions they favor, and that isn’t acceptable.

I can see where all this is headed by getting to know the AFPI people a bit, and it will only grow.  I have been thinking of them much like the original pilgrim colonies of Plymouth Rock.  I was reminded recently of my trip to Westgate in Canterbury, England, with my wife, where we went to see the cell of Robert Cushman.  Cushman was the original commissioner of the Mayflower on behalf of the Pilgrims. They were fleeing Europe due to the tremendous religious persecution from the Church, the state, the royalty, and their continuous power struggles.  The protestants wanted to be free of that persecution.  Robert Cushman, after all, just wanted to run a little grocery in Canterbury, but the Church insisted that he believe in their style of religion, so they shut him down and threw him in jail.  Essentially, it’s what we are seeing today, where the state insists that we believe in the gods of Covid, in climate change, and that we do what they say needs to be done, or nothing else.  Its tyranny to consider Covid vaccine mandates or to be put out of business.  But that was how it was in the times of Robert Cushman, around the 1620s, before and after. 

That hunger for freedom from tyrants has always been part of the human race.  America was founded on it, first from the pilgrims, then again during the Revolutionary War.  I would say today, with the election of Trump, the creation of the American First Policy Institute, and the political upheavals of our times, we are going through all that once again.  There is nothing new about tyrants wanting to capture people to make them think and do what they want them to do.  We see an example of this tyranny every day with the shadow banning.  It’s one thing for me to say it’s happening to me.  But one of the strongest examples is that of Jonathan Karl from the Disney-owned ABC News regarding his latest book, Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show.  That book has been quoted by most mainstream media outlets as if everything in the book was a fact.  It is the narrative of the captured press, but they are still a minority opinion, and to maintain that illusion, they have to shadow ban other views.  In this case, it’s the Peter Navarro book In Trump Time, written by an actual Trump insider in the White House.  Jonathan Karl was just a reporter.  Peter Navarro is the real deal.  His book is selling great, underground.  Just as my material gets out, underground, black market style, but the attempts at shadow banning couldn’t be more apparent.  The New York Times took Navarro off their Best Seller list not because it wasn’t selling but purely over political ideology.  The belief of the political left is just as the kings and popes of Europe thought about the protestant movement, that by ignoring why people wanted something, that something would go away. 

Just as the pilgrims came to America under great hardship and settled a new country founded on Christian sentiments, the America First Policy Institute was formed by a need to correct what happened to Trump and his voters during the 2020 election.   The government that pushed Trump out of office was not going to get away with just shutting down the thoughts and speech of those they disagreed with.  They were not going to be able to intimidate compliance.  Just as it always is with humans, the consequences would be harsh for those seeking to control them.  No matter what period in history we look at, we see people fighting tyranny.  If they can flee to get away from it, they will.  But in a world like what we live in now, where every corner of the world is occupied somehow, leaving no place to flee to, the only alternative left is to fight those who want to control us.  In reaction to that, the America First Policy Institute was formed to do just that, starting at the ballot box.  It won’t take long for the AFPI to grow into a much larger and influential organization, especially with the kind of people who are in the leadership. It’s a natural reaction to a very long story, and if I’m thankful for anything, it’s in the human response to the last couple of years, which is the birth of the AFPI.  Whether it’s the pilgrims or the front-line policymakers at Mar-a-Lago, it’s the human need for freedom that continues to endure and is what the real meaning of Thanksgiving truly is.  And this year especially, there is a lot to be thankful for because of the AFPI.

The Root Cause of Failed Liberalism: ‘Looking Backward’ to where the problem started

The Root Cause of Failed Liberalism

Not to brag, but as a statement of fact, I know many people are wondering why I have not been canceled out of existence.  Many bad people have certainly tried, and the shadow banning of me is just flat-out ridiculous.  But the truth of it is that my phone never stops ringing, even though I don’t make any attempts to broadcast what the political left considers toxic masculinity as a gun-wielding conservative, way to the political right of John Wayne.  I consider him a long-haired hippie compared to the way I think of politics.  But I do work extensively with people of all kinds of political affiliations and religious beliefs.  I get along with everybody until they do me wrong.  Yet if I answered all the calls and emails, I would never have time to do anything else, so I have to be very selective with my time.  It’s such a problem that I spent a whole chapter of my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business explaining why selective management of time is so important.  You might want to spend all kinds of time with people, but spending infinite amounts of time with them has a cost, usually a big one.  That leads to the answer to the question as to why this modern attack vector has not canceled me out by the liberal’s global progressive mindset.  Well, it’s because I have something the world really wants, a unique skill and that people are willing to put up with some conservative eccentricities so they can get some of what I have.  And that skill is a very keen sense of root cause analysis. 

For more than 30 years now, I have been an expert in Lean Manufacturing; I’ve been through all the reiterations and have advised many on it over the years.  I know it backward and forward.  But, I am not at all in love with it.  I see it strictly as an eastern spin to Japan’s lessons from Deming after World War II.  They were smart; they took one of the American manufacturing consultants into their arms after it was American manufacturing that essentially won that war, and they set out to beat us at our own game.  They turned what they learned into Lean and then sold it back to us, which now has much of the world thinking that they can copy Lean into their own cultures, only to find that it doesn’t work so well in the West.  I have never been all that impressed with Deming or the people who worship him as a manufacturing god. Those in the Lean movement with martial art terms that they think sound cool when selling eastern ideas to the West thinking it will help make companies better and more profitable.  If anything, it has only contributed to the spread of communism as we assumed that they knew something in the east that we didn’t know in the West, which essentially started this push toward global communism.  I have a saying that many who know me often hear, “get rid of the Black Belt and embrace the gunbelt.” I wrote my own book about this way of thinking after many years of experience and my root cause analysis of the state of the world, which needs some fresh insight. 

However, I’m not one to throw the baby out with the bathwater.  One of the Lean tools that are most commonly used in the world to determine root cause analysis is the “five whys.” Now here, my gunfighter analogy would say that I shoot from the hip on those kinds of things because I have great experience and troubleshooting ability.  I can usually arrive at a root cause analysis by walking into a room.  But to use a more traditional tool to bring other people into the knowledge, they need to see a process like the “five whys” to work out the problem.  And that’s precisely what I did when it came to asking the questions about why liberalism so often fails, why the Biden administration sucked so much.  Why do so many people hate Donald Trump?  And essentially, why the state of the world was so bad when liberals did their work in it.  Those weren’t political statements; they were observations based on reality.  I had my shoot from the hip understanding of it, which long-time readers here understand I usually peg things months, years, or decades ahead of when trends hit. That’s why my phone never stops ringing, and it never will.  Much of the time, I’d love the phone to stop ringing.  But there is a cost to everything.  But to prove my thoughts to people, I needed a more traditional root cause analysis.  So I found myself way out West with my family at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, which gave me what I had been looking for. I’ve been to museums all over the world, some of the best that there are.  And the Buffalo Bill Center of the West was, and is, something extraordinary. 

It was at that museum that I learned to what extent Edward Bellamy had played a role in shaping socialism in America during that little vacuum of history when the Buffalo Bill Wild West show was the most popular form of entertainment in the world, from around 1880 to 1910. Bellamy’s book Looking Backward came out in 1888. It was a continuation of Karl Marx that essentially started quite a movement in America toward socialism that seamlessly merged with progressivism around 1910, during the Teddy Roosevelt years.  In the Bellamyites, much of modern liberalism was formed, which populates our nightly news cycles. Specifically, the nationalization of all means of production.  It has loomed in the background for the last 150 years, and they have constantly made gains for their movement over that entire time.  But to see the root cause of the problem of liberalism, you must go back to that period before the Progressive Era and at the end of the romantic Gilded Era, what I think of as the age of the gunfighters.  Many believe in gunfighting as a barbarous age of aggression and violence; I see it as much better than the concepts of Bellamy and his followers of the modern-day progressives in the Democrat Party. 

Like any root cause analysis, when trying to solve a problem, it’s not acceptable to put up with something causing you a defect, whether in manufacturing, psychology, or global politics.  If a bad idea is causing trouble, then you have to get rid of it.  And liberalism was a bad idea from the moment it was released with the work of Karl Marx.  What Edward Bellamy did with it was infect America with a disaster of thought that we see fully on the stage today.  But to see it correctly, you have to go back to a time before the problem gained support, which Edward Bellamy did for the work of Karl Marx during the period of massive westward expansion in America.  In my own book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, the basic premise is designed to help put a business back on track or a country; however the thought exercises are wished to be used by the reader.  But accepting the failure of a thought is not acceptable. That’s not to say that in the past, they had everything right.  There are always ways for “continuous improvement.” But a continuation of a bad idea which liberalism is is not the path to success for anything.  And to deal with it effectively, we must as a culture accept that premise as a fact and not make concessions with failure just to avoid hurting anybody’s feelings.  That frankness is why the phone never stops ringing; there are so many people stuck in the world between a problem and broken feelings on how to have a proper solution.  Usually, the problem is easy to fix, but the people involved make it difficult.  But the fix is the fix, and for America to be right again, we must solve the sickness at its source, to the world before Edward Bellamy and his destructive book Looking Backward.

Decertify Biden: There is a way out of this mess

Decertify Joe Biden and Fix America

I’m quite aware that I am inviting massive shadow banning by mentioning anything about election fraud in this article’s title.  But considering how much I write and broadcast, as a totality, I am one of the most shadow-banned people in the world, and I consider it an honor.  Even though the laws are murky about it right now, the Internet is essentially a public utility created by taxpayers for our society’s use.  All those who are manipulating access and use of it are breaking the law.  It’s no different than some pirate confiscating water in a public water line to your house or poisoning that water at the treatment plant.  Google, Twitter, Facebook, and many others do not own the Internet.  They have just used it to make their money, which our government created for our use.  They are lawbreakers just like any other thief, and knowing all that if they want to shadow ban something I do, I enjoy knowing that.  I write as much as I do over the years because, by nature, it gets out anyway, no matter what restrictions they put on my site.  It happens by sheer mass.  But it doesn’t change the circumstances of this article that is pointing out the obvious and inevitable.  That the solution to many of our problems in our country right now is to decertify Joe Biden and to remove him from The White House and thus, to destroy all the plans that the political left has planned with this global insurrection once and for all, and to let history measure the embers of the aftermath. 

I am proud to be affiliated with the America First Policy Institute, which is the group behind the Trump lawsuit against Big Tech. It’s a good move, but by the time it’s all resolved, the Internet will be viewed as a public utility, much the way water, roads, or electricity is used, and those doing the kind of censorship that Big Tech is guilty of will be known as criminals.  But for now, we will all just have to fight it out.   The truth is the truth, and the bad guys can’t make the truth what they want it to be.  Joe Biden did not win the election of 2020, which is why all these criminal conspirators feel they must shadow ban information and censor reality because they hope that the truth doesn’t get out.  Joe Biden likely didn’t get much more than 60 million votes.  Trump broke 75 million, and he’ll do it again.  Can you imagine if the next election is watched and the Post Office is prevented from destroying hundreds of thousands of votes by dumping them on the side of the road?  Trump may very well break 80 million votes by the end of the vote count, well beyond the Democrat’s ability to cheat in the election.  They only got away with it in 2020 because of all the goofy Covid rules.  They can’t cover the margin without that, and Trump will be back in the White House.  Nobody on the political left is ready for that; there is no plan in the liberal playbook to deal with that reality.  They are hiding from it now, hoping to run out the clock somehow, but the clock is not their friend.  Reality is knocking on the door, and they think that by not opening the door, they can avoid paying for what they’ve done. 

Yet, as we look around at the mess that Joe Biden’s illegal administration has created, we should not be surprised.  Afghanistan was just the start, of course.  When you cheat an election and put in place someone the people didn’t vote for, what did they expect would happen?  We don’t want this socialist infrastructure bill.  We don’t want social spending bills in the trillions.  We don’t want to be losers on the world stage.  We don’t want the fake science of climate change.  We don’t want the United Nations.  We don’t wish to have high gas prices.  We want our shelves stocked.  We want employees in our drive-thrus saying “yes sir, have a good day,” as they give us our fast food.  We want our stuff in 20 different colors in a few days, not weeks.  We want competency.  We want a secure border.  We want schools that honor the parent/child relationship.  We don’t want to bend the knee to China in any way.  We don’t want a liberalized Hollywood.  We don’t want a radical FBI who does political hits for the Democrat party.  We love our history, we want to teach it to our children, and we want an America First policy that the world can follow if they want to.  We don’t want Agenda 21 or Agenda 2030.  We don’t want to run and hide from viral outbreaks like the manufactured in a Wuhan lab coronavirus that Dr. Fauci was involved in creating.

We want to erase all these problems, and we can do it very simply by just following the law and decertifying the 2020 election results in Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.  And for good measure, Michigan.  We also need to perform audits in all the states to put to bed the actual numbers, which will show that Democrats are not competitive.  The country is not so evenly split down the middle.  That has been a lie, too, meant to make the horse race look closer than it really is for those who like to bet on horse races.  Just decertify the election and make all these problems go away by removing Biden from The White House.  They need to be taught a lesson, they need to be embarrassed, and they should have thought about the consequences before they pulled what they did against our Constitution and all of us who need to believe in the voting process.

Just think of how it will be when Trump runs again.  How will Fox News cover the Republican nominee when Trump talks about the election fraud of 2020 over and over again.  What will Facebook do and Twitter when they censor everything Trump says.  Before, in 2020 they thought Trump was done for and would never return because that’s how the Swamp works.  They never had a plan for Jonah to return from the belly of the whale.  History tells this story well; a leader in exile usually comes back to a triumphant return.  When Trump is back in the news every day, how are the censors who have broken the law through mass censorship through a public utility going to deal with it?  It will be a bloody mess, especially after the 2022 elections pretty much destroy the Democrat Party.  The Democrats took their shit shot and tried to destroy America before we caught on to what they were doing, and now they’ve been caught.  So we either deal with it directly on our terms, using the legal system to correct things, or the Democrat Party gets destroyed along with all their corporate conspirators.  What choice is there?  Either way, Joe Biden will be removed from office, and those who artificially propped him up will be exposed.  There are no assassinations or personal censorship that will stop that process by force and intimidation. Instead, the more that the Swamp lashes out at us for asking and stating the obvious questions, the madder we are getting.  And that is not a place that anybody on the political left really wants because they are not the majority.  They are the minority by a lot, and they damn well know it.

‘Looking Backward’: Where the liberal snipers have been hiding

Finding the Snipers by Looking Backward

I talk about it all the time, but if you are new to all this and have been getting your news from more mainstream sources, well, maybe you didn’t know about the successive tyrants of the world, the World Economic Forum who recently announced their Great Narrative from Dubai.  That is, of course, the same group behind the Great Reset, which Covid was created to implement across the world to shut down all the world’s economies simultaneously.  Then to have a managed restart under the United Nations using climate change fake science to drive the need.  I was catching up on all the latest climate crises, United Nations propaganda, and Davos Great Narrative updates while playing the new Call of Duty: Vanguard.  I was on a specific mission where you had to cross a vast field with broken-up buildings off in the distance full of snipers.  You had to work with a teammate to draw out the sniper fire, determine which windows the snipers were in, and quickly shoot them to advance.  I couldn’t help but see the parallels to what I was listening to.  The political left has kept themselves concealed in darkness for a long time, forcing us to focus on their specific positions.  As we put our sniper scopes on them, they’d shoot us from a different place.  When we changed our priorities, they’d shoot us yet from somewhere else.  But I like to look at the whole battlefield and pay attention to all the muzzle flashes from the various snipers to see them as one big story.  And that’s what the Great Narrative revealed to me; it was essentially a word-for-word utopian update of the old Edward Bellamy book Looking Backward.  This time, climate change was the driver toward global socialism and communism, taking over government over private enterprise so that the state could justify the power grab.  Since people resisted the first attempt, which took over 100 years to try, the political left has now turned to climate change to drive the justification, and it is evident to anybody who had a mind to look at the big picture. 

Looking Backward was essentially a short evolutionary novel meant to soft-sell Karl Marx to America and was in 1888 the third most popular book behind Ben Hur.  There was a massive following for the socialist utopia that the book describes when the hero wakes up 130 years in the future after being put to sleep with hypnosis only to suffer an accident in the process.  When he finally wakes up, the world has evolved into a socialist utopia, complete with the state taking over ultimately the means of production. There is no crime, everyone is equal, and the government maintains that fairness at the expense of all else. It’s a fluffy sort of fiction that, looking forward, was every bit like science fiction as Star Wars. Still, the premise was intentionally real, and a considerable following erupted from 1888 to 1900.  It only ended because Bellamy had died, and the movement took on a new shape.  But it’s a period of history that hides behind other things like the Civil War, the invention of the airplane, the electric bulb. The Model T. It’s a socialist movement that completely infected our education system at all levels, starting with John Dewey, who designed our public education system around the premise of Bellamy’s book.  So this wasn’t some fringe movement, it was the evolution of Karl Marx right in front of our faces, and it happened at the turn of the century.  What evolved after it became the stuff of nightmares, the creation of the Federal Reserve, the centralized control of money, progressive taxation, the big government politics that would lead to the New Deal.  The attempts at creating the League of Nations, then finally the United Nations.  It all started with that little book that replaced the gunfighters of western expansion and the liberalized easterner’ desire to assimilate the new nation’s success. 

People called these strange new socialist lovers “elite” because, at the time, they were the ones who were in our education system and teaching us.  They were the education system, the professors of our colleges, and they were our intellectual guides in a time when many people still couldn’t read.  Because many who founded America as a new country were suffering from an inferiority complex with Europe, these socialist lovers had the ear of many people we trusted to teach us things we didn’t know due to our lack of culture and history.  We didn’t know that much of what they were teaching were things we didn’t want or need to know.  We just knew they knew something we didn’t, so our society listened to them.  This went on for several decades, getting worse and worse over time.  As communism took over in the Soviet Union in 1917, then socialism moved into the collapsed German government with Hitler in the 1930s. China with a total communist takeover in 1949, Cuba in the 1950s, then Iran in the 1970s, the long march of global domination of communism has been moving along at a predictable pace.  Liberals in America’s own government were always sympathetic. They sought to teach Americans the ways of socialism and communism in our public schools and colleges the entire time, so there is a bit of socialism in just about everyone these days.  And always, the turn toward communism was through financial pressure and forcible military conquest.  That is certainly the case in Germany, where their financial system completely collapsed after World War I, and China after fighting in World War II.   The same playbook was at work on America now in 2020, and if you know how to sniff out the snipers to see where they are shooting from, you can see what’s been happening quickly.  I read the book that they are still following almost verbatim.

Of course, there are flaws to this plan that these losers have never worked out.  They don’t understand where socialism went wrong from its beginning plans, which Bellamy never figured out.  The failure of these so-called elites is that they assumed that if the world’s governments could unite and issue fairness, they could take over all industries and never miss a beat.  But that’s not what’s happening. Instead, all the flaws from the beginning all the socialist academics were in love with were never resolved.  The Bellamy novel was fiction at best when it first was shown to the public.  Because it appealed to the below-the-line people out in the world, they ignored that socialism defied the essence of human need.  It was a fantasy written by the mind of a child, and it had migrated into a governing force that still insists on trying it over and over again, even though it never worked.  These educated elite have shown themselves not to be very smart.  We gave them the benefit of the doubt looking forward, but looking backward, as the book suggests, they had it wrong from the beginning, and they never had a chance ever to get it right.  Yet that is the very premise of the Davos crowd of the World Economic Forum people.  They are as lost as they ever were, and they, in their most profound thoughts, want to rule the world as all tyrants have over the many centuries of warfare.  And they expect America to fall like all the other places in the world have, especially since they’ve spent over a century building the momentum.  But I would argue that we see where they are shooting from now, we know where their snipers are, and we can win this game now that they are exposed.  They may have hidden that book, Looking Backward, from history, but they can’t hide the result.  It’s time to pay, and the evidence points to a bad day for all of them.

They Call it the War Room for a Reason: Democrats broke the law and now its time to pay

Its the War Room, not the Play Room

I thought it was a smart move, the way Steve Bannon, the War Room host, turned himself in to the FBI on charges of contempt of congress.  He showed up, the cameras were rolling wild, and he was there to state before and after his quick release on the completely bogus charge that is a misdemeanor at best.  His move does a lot of good things, it engaged people who might not otherwise be paying attention, and it gave him an excuse to take the gloves off civility and do what the War Room was always intended, to wage war.  For many, the point of no return has already occurred; we are dealing with a criminal government built by thieves and ideological lunatics who function no different than the mob of Al Capone.  I have been saying it for a while; the mobsters never went away.  They got tired of running from people like Rudy Giuliani.   So they embedded themselves in our government to become part of a global cabal and took possession of our legal system for all the purposes they originally intended, to make a lot of money and use the law to destroy their enemies.  Who needs guns and assassins when you can direct the FBI to take out your political rivals.  What happened to Steve Bannon was essentially a hit to attempt to destroy a Trump comeback in 2024.  The War Room is very popular, and Trump hasn’t gone away, so the mobsters in our government who illegally put Biden in place with massive election fraud turned to the Department of Justice to do its bidding. That’s how contempt charges were leveled against Steve Bannon. 

I don’t personally complain.  I do a lot of things in my life for the good.  I have an impact on hundreds if not thousands of lives every day.  So I don’t sweat what Big Tech has done to me personally.  I understand how Steve Bannon feels.  The hits on me come from many directions.  His hit is different because he’s a high-profile target directly linked to President Trump.  So they went with this method.  When it comes to me, I am so shadow-banned on the internet that every IP address I touch is pretty much shut off to the outside world.  There are very few people like me out there who have written as much as I have, but so little gets out.  Try typing in my website of Gunfighterguide. Shop into a search engine, and you’ll find that it does not give you a direct link. That’s because search engines have erased it through algorithms and other means.  But I continue doing my bit of work because I have a lot of subscribers who take the information directly and pass it along in ways that all these tech terrorists can’t stop, or they have a hard time doing it.  What Bannon did was nothing about law and order; this is war with these radical Democrats and ultra-left progressives.  They mean to destroy us all; I’ve seen it up close.  If they can’t scare you into submission with physical violence, they’ll try something else, like shadow banning or arrests by the FBI.  They have no intention to co-exist with conservatives.  They mean to destroy us or nothing else.  There is no middle ground for them.  That is something everyone needs to understand.  Anyone who speaks against them is a severe threat. 

The Disney-owned ABC news guy Jonathan Karl is about to release a book called Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show, and the media culture is releasing little snippets of the book ahead of its release, just as they have done with other similar hit books on the Trump administration.  Karl and ABC News, in general, have hated the Trump administration in very unhealthy ways and the voters who voted for him. It defies logic, yet Karl makes no hint at disguise in hating Trump, even though he is supposed to be a mainstream reporter for an important network.  Obviously, Disney is OK with all of Jonathan Karl’s radicalism. Still, they had a problem with Gina Carano for supporting conservative ideas to the point where they fired her from a Star Wars project.  The fact is, Jonathan Karl’s book is getting a lot of media attention.  Yet, just a few weeks ago, Peter Navarro released his book In Trump Time, which, unlike Karl, actually worked for the White House and directly with the president.  He wasn’t some reporter kept at arm’s length; he was actually in the situation room with the President during Covid and in the Oval Office leading up to the election.  He has pretty good knowledge of what went on in the Trump White House.  But from the media, no coverage at all.  Not from the mainstreamers anyway, certainly not on ABC News or The View.  The media, like Big Tech, was actively doing the work of helping this criminal government do its unaccounted-for conduct against the people of the United States.  All of them participating in shadow bans, abusing authority with the DOJ and FBI, the corporate media culture that is picking and choosing news for the sake of politics are all in on the scam.  When Steve Bannon said before turning himself over to the FBI that the Biden regime was illegitimate, he told a truth that all these criminals know, and they are trying to shut people like him up from saying it.  For instance, the evidence of that criminal conduct can be seen everywhere, even in the release of books like Jonathan Karl’s.  Karl was just a reporter; Navarro was a direct employee to the administration.  Who was better to report the truth?  The intent is obvious. 

I know my stuff gets out like a sperm cracking the egg of the host.  It takes thousands and thousands for just that one to get through and create life to a new idea.  I accept that is how this game is played.  It’s certainly not fair, but you don’t cry about it either.  Steve Bannon has a much higher profile, primarily because of his relationship with Trump, so they can’t just turn him off. He’s on too much media, even if it’s alternative media.  So like Roger Stone, they looked to make a public spectacle out of him since shadow banning won’t work so well as it does with a smaller outfit like mine.  But Bannon made a good show of the spectacle, and many more people are aware of what’s going on than they did before.  If the War Room audience is limited to just Trump supporters, then what Bannon managed this week by turning himself in to the FBI in a spectacular way was that people outside of that circle are in on the action, which is how a movement grows.  Ultimately, the way out of America’s mess is to decertify Joe Biden’s presidency.  Small blogs like mine and big podcasts like Bannon’s are the drivers of that needed narrative, and there are many more people open to it now than there were just a few months ago.  A bad economy and an embarrassing performance on the world stage will do that, and the Biden people never counted on any of this.  They thought all these MAGA people would be done and gone with by now.  But instead, we are picking up more support.  And despite all their criminal actions, political hits, and hostility toward conservatives, Biden is dying as an administration, and Trump is on the rise.  They have not managed to kill us off.  They have indeed harassed us, but if you aren’t the crying type, there isn’t much they can really do to any of us.  So there is no reason to fear them.  But there are a lot of reasons to eradicate them.

How the Vaccine Mandate Falls Apart in Court: The Government is guilty of what happens by their decisions

The Holes in the Government Vaccine Mandate Case

So, these two lawyers have been disturbed about my position on the vaccine mandates for employers, and to settle some of our ongoing disputes, we met for lunch.  I essentially left that meeting and filmed the above video, so it was fresh on my mind how ridiculous they were in their assumptions that the same government that made and spread Covid-19 is the same government that is deciding what’s safe and not safe and that they can suspend constitutional rights, rights we have that protect us from government, based on their advice alone.  For me, this is one of the most obvious legal cases in the history of the world, and it’s quite clear, without a pause of contemplation.  There is no scientific evidence that the vaccines work; it’s all a Dumbo’s feather sentiment, not based on any actual science.  Yet, we have allowed our government to believe that it can enforce or even enact a mass vaccine policy that decides whether or not people can work or not work or whether businesses close or stay open based on government tampering.  They considered all those arguments conspiracy theory until we talked for a half-hour over a few hamburgers.  I can say that they did change their mind by the end of our talk, at least until they went back to their offices and mingled with people of their own kind, members of the BAR Association who have injected themselves into our fights of the day with sissy slapping and wordplay instead of the gun duels we used to rely on to settle disputes.  More and more these days, I’d rather just dual it out with adversaries.  There is something much more honest about the exchange that seems much more appropriate for these kinds of times.  But that’s beside the point. 

At the heart of the argument, which I guess they had to meet with me in public to gather the gravity of it, was that the biggest problem with the vaccine mandates that set up the government with serious litigious anxiety for years to come, is that they know the vaccine is dangerous to some people. Yet, they forced that danger on people by calling it safety which is not the case.  We all know people by now who have gotten the shot.  When you get it, they tell you to sit somewhere they can observe you for 10 minutes. I’ve been present when many people have obtained the shot, and before they get it, they are fine.  After they get it, they get sick because their bodies recognize the hostile agent that has been introduced into their bodies to attack it, so the immune system goes to work. It’s a strain on a body under any condition, but some people get very sick for a few days after and have to miss work anyway.  Some people are wiped out entirely for a few days because of the violent reaction to the vaccine.  It’s kind of the problem with the wordplay in a document that says you “will” do something as opposed to “shall.” When the government commands you “will” or “must” get the vaccine, they put themselves on the hook for the results.  They are responsible for what happens next.  If a person gets sick and loses time, they are responsible for the cost of that lost time because they caused the occurrence.  And that is certainly the case when someone who might be bordering on a heart attack anyway gets this vaccine and finds themselves violently sick, and the heart attack goes off.  The government just killed someone.  It doesn’t matter if the intentions were good or bad; it was the government’s decision that caused the death.  They interrupted the health of the person who had a heart attack by introducing a hostile element to their lives. That decision caused death if the heart attack victim dies, which reports indicate is often happening, not in every circumstance, but more cases than in “some” circumstances.  When the government makes itself the responsible party, it is then their responsibility to deal with whatever happens. 

What is astonishing in this whole vaccine mandate case, which has not been adequately challenged by any court yet because lawyers like these guys who went to lunch with me haven’t had a chance to wrap their minds around it yet, is how the government doesn’t want guilt for actions it committed.  That certainly has been on purpose by the government to take advantage of a shock and awe campaign to keep the legal system on its heels.  They use social status within the BAR Association to keep everyone in line and keep them from asking the proper questions.  Ultimately, that’s why these guys wanted to win me over to their version of reality was because they were more concerned about their peer review, which wants to punt their opinions to the conspiracy theory side of things rather than consider the culpability of the government in responsibility for knowingly making people sick with the vaccine mandate.  They might have a case if we knew that Covid was dangerous right out of the gate, and they were trying to save people, as they say, they are.  But we’ve been dealing with Covid for a few years now, and we know a lot about it.  Not many people are dying from it, and those who get sick get over it within a few days.  As it stands now, the way lawyers should look at this case, or prosecutors, at all the work the CDC did to create new quarantine laws for Covid, all the new things that were done that have made all our lives so miserable in the process, and that those actions were to cover up what the government knew about the virus, what role they had in making it, and what role they had in releasing it to the public.  I would refer to the Peter Navarro book In Trump Time, where the Dr. Fauci case showed that the NIH was funding and tampering with coronavirus, which led to the creation of Covid-19.  That is the answer we all need to understand before we do anything on a mass scale, especially knowingly putting people in harm by the aftereffects of getting the vaccine.

My lunch guests could see the point, but as they said, “who is going to take this to court?” I, of course, told them that they should be doing it.  I reminded them that this is the same government that is sending the FBI to raid the home of James O’Keefe from Project Veritas over information directly related to President Biden.  The Department of Justice is holding Steve Bannon in contempt of court for inciting a riot on January 6th, 2020, after George Soros spent millions of dollars paying rioters to burn down American cities trying to start a race war in America entirely politically motivated.  And that same government has their hands all over this; we know what Dr. Fauci knew and when he knew it.  He personally approved gain of function research behind President Trump’s back in 2017. He knew that is where Covid came from as he lied on television for many months after bringing our entire global economy to a crippling stop.  This government is conducting terrorism, and if the BAR Association and its lawyers won’t fight the court battle that must be fought, who will?  The government is counting on those guys to attack me as the path to what they think is the least resistance.  I might have changed their minds for that day, and they know the case’s merits fall as a burden on the government.  This government is not too big to prosecute, and eventually, it will be.  They have to be. Otherwise, there is no law and order in our society.  Anybody who knowingly causes harm to someone else is guilty of the result. The government, through these mandates, is guilty of what happens to those who have adverse reactions to the vaccination process.  It is irrelevant as to whether or not the government had good intentions in doing so. I’d argue they are doing it to cover up their much worse crime of making the virus and spreading it for political reasons.  But ultimately, the smoking gun, in this case, is the burden of responsibility.  It falls on the government what happens as a result of things they mandate.  And when those things cause death, that is squarely on them, and how they need to be attacked in legal cases from now on.

Republicans Can Always Win: It’s all about turnout, not issues–people don’t vote issues, they vote for a winner

Republicans Can ALways Win

Maybe a year ago, I would have been quiet about this little secret, but now I think it’s safe to let it out of the bag.  When Steve Bannon on the popular podcast War Room says that “we” are two-thirds of the country, he is right. I’ve been out in the world and verified it for myself.  Democrats can try to play games with election fraud, and illegal immigration voting is a form of election fraud to skew the popular vote, but the truth is, there are a lot more red areas in America than blue.  Democrats have only survived with a bit of trickery in high population areas. Keeping voter suppression down to something that lets them win and every community has a magic number.  But if they can keep voters home on election night while activating their radicals with early voting, and keep the overall participation rate down to around 20%, then they can have a chance.  Much as I knew it would happen in a local election in my area with a school board race, and several trustee races, I knew that the limit for the liberals was under 18%.  If Republicans showed up and voted with more than 18% or higher, all conservative candidates would win, just by simple math.  There are more conservatives in most areas than liberals, and if voter participation rates are higher than average, conservatives could theoretically always win.  So one of the tactics Democrats use to keep Republicans home on election night is to make the whole thing seem pointless, which works with a certain percentage of the population.  But when you get a Trump in a race, or a Glenn Younkin who can make voters want to get up and out on election night, then there is always a chance to win.  It’s not some magic trick. It’s just simple math. 

As bad as it is now under the Biden administration, I hate to say it, but it’s a positive thing for people to see.  People like me have been warning about the cost of progressivism for a long time, and always progressives loomed with their socialist agenda in the background of “what ifs,” daring Americans to give them a try.  They were like the seductress tempting greener grass if only you might give them a try, only to find out how toxic they are once you are deep in the arms of a homewrecker.  Sometimes if you don’t find out for yourself, you will spend your life wondering about it, making it all that much more appealing.  Now, with people stuck with Joe Biden and his Democrats of global conquest and communism for all, people are finding out for themselves what we were always warning about.  Every day that Democrats have power, the worse their brand for the future is.  By the time a few more months go by, people likely will hate them so much that they may never vote for one again.  And I see a tremendous opportunity for the political scale in America to be reset to something more appropriate, an America where Trump is a Democrat, and someone more conservative would represent the Republican Party.  Years ago, I said on a radio show that I saw an end to the Democrat Party around 2021.  I think Trump accelerated those plans in many ways, and here we are with Democrats showing all their ugly cards.  And people who thought they were getting a moderate in Biden have had to learn a hard lesson.  To me, it’s good for people to see just how bad Democrats are, especially when the contrast to the Trump administration was so good just a few months prior. It’s not like Biden inherited a bunch of problems.  It was all set up for him to do great things off the coattails of the Trump administration, and they blew it fast. 

So I wasn’t at all surprised that Glenn Younkin won in Virginia to be the next governor. I’ve been to Virginia a lot, and it’s not a purple state.  It takes on a blue hue when you get near Washington D.C., which certainly isn’t fair to the rest of the state, which is a hard red.  But really, it’s a numbers game, and Glenn Younkin was a nice enough candidate that he was able to get people out to vote on election night and show just how many conservatives there indeed were.  The education scandal certainly was an issue that provoked voters in an off-year to get off the couch and vote when they might have otherwise stayed home.  But what was bizarre was the Democrats kept using President Trump’s name in their campaign as if hate for him would give them the win.  News flash, President Trump was very popular, especially outside of cities, all over America.  County by county all across North America Trump is a name that activates voters to action.  It showed in the last election, voter fraud aside.  Trump managed over 75 million votes, actual votes.  Reminding people about Trump is not a good way to keep voters on their couches on election night.  By reminding voters of the progressive education problems and that Trump was still out there, Democrats never had a chance. 

And that is the little trick that could be used anywhere, even in California.  It’s all a numbers game.  Republicans lose because they typically play by invisible rules of engagement that Democrats have set up, like woke issues that voters glaze over when they hear them.  When voters hear Republicans, we call RINOs talking about the issues Democrats establish as important; all they do is keep their voters from getting excited and going out to vote for them. In the local race I mentioned, many brilliant political people were worried about the labor union influencing the voters toward the incumbents with the school board.  But I knew there were only so many voters out there of the 100,000 or so that were available that would vote for the liberals.  In a race under 18% voter participation, the liberals win.  If the vote count is over 18%, the Republicans will always win because statistically, there are many more Republicans in my county than Democrats.  And that is generally the case everywhere.  If you can get candidates who can activate a more significant percentage of the voting population, you will always have a chance for Republicans to win.  Democrats have to keep Republicans home and stretch out their window to get the small percentage who support them.  They make it always look close, but that’s not the actual condition of the country.  It’s a reflection of the actual voter turnout.  Because of all the nonsense, too many Republicans throw up their hands and order a pizza on election night.  They don’t participate.  Glenn Younkin was a good candidate, so people voted.

In my local case, there were good candidates, and people could feel good about them, so they went out and voted.  Trump will run again and win again because he can activate the vote.  He can get people off the couch, out from in front of the TV, and out into the night air to vote. That’s why he is still around.  It’s not about mean Tweets.  It’s not about policy.  It’s not about playing nice.  It’s about, and it’s always about, winning and convincing voters that you’re worth getting up and supporting because nobody wants to do any work for a loser.
