Free Meredith Graves: A warning before my new book hits stores all across the country

with 6 comments

Before all hell breaks loose when my new book, Tail of the Dragon is released in the upcoming months, I need to make a few things very clear. When the Tennessee governor and legislature points at my book and says it is an unfair representation of the State of Tennessee and casts the highway patrol in a bad light, I will point at the below article from The Blaze to validate my intentions.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/states-fights-tn-vows-payback-on-new-yorkers-after-911-memorial-gun-arrest/

My editor and I just closed off the edit to my long awaited project and it is off to the design teams and copyeditor. The book reads faster than anything I’ve ever read and it’s packed with little details that I’m very proud of. But the plot line of a fictional governor using the Tennessee Highway Patrol as his personal army, and means for obtaining the White House by manipulating a Fraternal Order of Police endorsement is an old political trick that does go on in abundance all over the country. The reason I picked Tennessee as the primary plot center is because there is a history there of a vigilant THP (Tennessee Highway Patrol) that does get wrapped up in the personal business of politics. I’m thinking of the THP 100 Days of Heat campaign as seen in their promotion video.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is very proud of their vigilance, and they advertise themselves almost as a military force that is protecting people even from themselves, which brings up a whole bunch of constitutional questions. But as a whole, the THP functions like most Highway Patrols in other states. On the inside the officers believe they are serving the public by upholding the law, so they reside on high moral ground. But on the outside, among the rebels of society, who question the validity and qualifications of the “law makers” the thin blue line of law enforcement becomes a shield against corruption since the people must often fight the law to get to the corruption that makes the laws. In the case of my novel, a power grabbing governor can use the THP to execute their personal political initiatives and if there isn’t a law on the books to allow them to do so, they will make one. This is the problem with blind obedience to law enforcement and is the subject of my book. I think the current governor of Tennessee, Bill Haslam is a pretty good guy, so my story doesn’t target his administration. But it cannot be forgotten that at one time Al Gore was governor of Tennessee and most recently Phil Bredesen who I would term a progressive and these two governors show how Tennessee politics can play out on a national stage, and when a politician gets a corn cob up their ass to make things happen, turning to the THP to implement their wishes borders on abuse of power.

It is that abuse of power that I focus on in my Tail of the Dragon, or rather the temptation to abuse power for personal means. Because Tennessee has a history of political activism, and a proud, military like Highway Patrol, this makes them the target of my subject matter. It’s also because of stories like what was shown in The Blaze article above.

Innocent enough Meredith Graves walked into the 9/11 Memorial in New York City and checked her gun at the door, thinking she was doing the right thing. However, unknown to 39 year old Graves, a registered nurse and four year medical student from Knoxville, New York doesn’t recognize the 2nd Amendment and has gun control laws that defy common sense. So she was arrested and thrown in jail and faces a 3 and ½ years of possible jail time if convicted.

Oh, by the way, it wasn’t drugs that were in her pocket, it was crushed up aspirin. But the assumption was that it was cocaine, so you can see dear reader how quickly politics can become nationalized. All Meredith wanted to do is see the 9/11 Memorial. The injustice of this case has prompted in the Tennessee State Legislature House Resolution 585 which reads “We remind the citizens of New York, especially those residing in New York City, to drive carefully through the great state of Tennessee, paying extra attention to our speed limits.” The threat is obvious; the THP has been instructed by the state legislature to pull over speeders from the state of New York in protest against the arrest of Meredith Graves, which is a noble cause by Representative Frank Niceley the Knoxville based farmer who proposed the legislation on behalf of his constituent. I actually admire the action. New York City is violating the Constitution by not recognizing Meredith Graves right to carry a firearm and they attempted to paint her as a gun nut drug dealer to justify their arrest. It happens all the time in the realm of politics. And Tennessee is fighting for one of their own. But—the speed limit is the law, and Tennessee is admitting that they can, and do target specific groups of people when they need to make a point. In reality it is the people of New York who will pay for the crime against one of Tennessee’s own. In my new novel it is the tourists of Tennessee who find themselves pulled over and getting excessive citations to fund the presidential run of the fictional Tennessee governor. In both cases, reality and fiction, the Tennessee Highway Patrol is used as a tool to carry out the whims of the political class.

When Tail of the Dragon comes out it’s not the people of Tennessee and the THP that are my intended targets, where billions of dollars of damage is caused and war breaks out because the police simply pulled over the wrong guy, a guy who refuses to acknowledge the right of the law to infringe on his liberty. My target is the political system like Mayor Bloomberg who pushes for the harshest conviction of Graves because he wishes to justify his unconstitutional state law by sacrificing an American citizen to the whims of the political class. And it’s the tendency of a well-intentioned legislator to use the Highway Patrol as a weapon of war in any capacity, whether the intention is a noble one demanding release of Meredith Graves from jail so she can return to her home in Knoxville, or to generate revenue for the state. My anger, and the point of my upcoming novel is the use of law enforcement as a political tool that constantly infringes on the Constitutional rights of American citizens. My book is about a war that breaks out when one guy says “No” to the right of the law to jeopardize his freedom and the political struggle of that action as it evolves all the way up to the President of the United States.

So no offense Tennessee and I’m sorry in advance to put you in the national spotlight when my book hits the shelf. It’s not personal. But unfortunately, because of a history of actions and a reputation like the ones discussed in this case involving Meredith Graves, it is Tennessee and the clash of cultures between big nanny state politics in places like Washington D.C. and New York that cross paths with gun carrying, law abiding citizens like Meredith Graves who wanted to do the right thing, that dictate my attention. In fact, a very close friend of mine had almost exactly the same thing happen to him at the Washington Monument a few years back, and it was quite an ordeal. Unfortunately for Tennessee, it was Al Gore who became the spokesman for the movements Mayor Bloomberg represents. So the plot of my book takes place in Tennessee because it is this state more than any other who sits on the frontier of tyranny and freedom in a war that has been ongoing for more than 100 years.

When the book hits the bookstore shelves, believe me, people like Meredith Graves are what I’m thinking about, and not the unfortunate lives lost in the THP during the events that occur in my story as the police find themselves caught between politics and the people. I write in fiction in hopes that the actual violence can be avoided in reality as these struggles over ideas play out. But sometimes, like the situation involving Graves, I have my doubts.

RED TAILS the Movie, is Fantastic: THANK YOU GEORGE LUCAS………AGAIN!

with 12 comments

Once again, George Lucas has shown that he can see way over the horizon to the essence of a problem, and in this case, with his most recent film, he grapples with the spirit of America and what makes our country tick. The genius of this very, very good film titled Red Tails can be seen at the start of most NFL football games, like this one during a home game with the San Francisco 49er’s where the actual Tuskegee Airmen which Red Tails is all about, took center stage as Elijah Kelly sung the National Anthem. If you’ve ever wondered why moments like the one shown in this video gives you chills up your spine, the movie Red Tails will define it for you.

I loved the film Red Tails featuring the adventurous exploits of the Tuskegee Airmen for all the reasons that The Huffington Post and The Hollywood Reporter disliked it. You can read those reviews below for reference against the one I’m writing. Contrary to the three reviews below I love John Wayne films and I love “Old Hollywood.” And I love stories where the good guys know they are good guys, and the bad guys are purely evil. I also like my villains with scars on their faces so you can clearly see who they are and what they are up to. In real life it’s often more difficult to see who the enemies are, so in our movies, it’s fun to see them clearly. And I love stories where squeaky clean crusaders fight for justice against tyranny! For all those reasons I have looked forward to George Lucas’s epic story about the real life Tuskegee Airmen for over three years now and the last 6 months have left me very hungry for the meal that is Red Tails. On the day after my viewing, I feel filled the way only an exquisite meal can sooth and I can assure you that I will not forget it.

Red Tails review from The Huffington Post which complains the film is blatenly old fashioned.

Hollywood Reporter review complains that the characters are squeaky clean.

Slant Magazine: I really think this one is funny.

http://www.slantmagazine.com/film/review/red-tails/6016

I would recommend that you stop reading this review right now and go see the movie. You can return here later, after you’ve seen it………….I’m serious, GO SEE THE MOVIE! NOW!

But in case you didn’t listen to me, let me continue—many critics of films like this are those who seek to tell stories that reflect their life philosophies, which reflect their broken family trees, the propaganda education they’ve received, and believe that every story about African-Americans must include broken down beings who overcome racism in the methods determined in the 60’s. While the racism story is a sub-plot in Red Tails, it’s not the focus of the story because it was not the focus of the original Airmen who collaborated closely with Lucas and the filmmakers to bring this story to life. It is not George Lucas’s issue that most of America has forgotten what kind of men made up this era of freedom fighters, and if the men of the period were not squeaky clean, they at least attempted to appear that way, because the films of the period created the mythology that society functioned under. When Lucas makes movies, he does so with the long view in mind, and that is certainly the case for this movie. My wife and I watched Red Tails late on opening night to a crowd that was a heavily black audience. There was a lot of laughing during the film, and there was a lot of crying. When the film ended I heard something I have not heard in over a decade at a films conclusion—people clapped and cheered. When the lights came up streaks of tears were running down people’s faces and a feeling of patriotism filled the very large theater. The movie ended with a very moving scene involving American patriotism similar to the Elijah Kelly National Anthem shown above. You would have to be brain-dead to not like the characters in Red Tails so the ending was particularly potent. Every character was very compelling and I felt I knew them well as the credits rolled. My wife and I sat until the last credit left the screen and as I stood up to leave, the theater was still packed with weeping women, men who stood with their shoulders squared almost wanting to salute the screen. And little children were glass eyed and looked eager to find an airplane. In the lobby there was a line at the movie poster where dads were standing with their children in front of the painting to get a picture as mothers snapped the proud poses. I cannot remember a time when I’ve seen so much enthusiasm upon leaving a movie and it was a wonderful feeling. Even the sleet falling outside didn’t sour the spirits. As I held the door open for a woman coming out behind me, tears still fresh on her face, she said—“bless you.” Thus, the magic of movies, where they can unite an audience toward a common theme and touch their hearts beyond any social conventions and provoke them to bring out the best in what stirs in the mind of each and every individual on planet earth, a love of freedom, and a yearning to overcome adversity.

Lucas and I both have in common a love of Joseph Campbell, in fact Lucas served on the board of directors of the Joseph Campbell Foundation for a number of years while I was also a member. I had the fortune of attending a special showing of the Star Wars Smithsonian Exhibit back in 1997 because of my affiliation with the Joseph Campbell Foundation, and I can report that I understand exactly what George Lucas was trying to achieve as a filmmaker in Red Tails, and I agree with him 100000000%. He knows the period of history between 1900 and 1970 better than most functioning historians and his knowledge of history is reflected accurately in Red Tails.

While watching Red Tails to be honest I did not think about black men and white men until the characters reminded me of racism during the film. Racism has long been destroyed in America and it was largely through events like what the Tuskegee Airmen performed in World War II that ended it. There was a gradual acceptance by whites of black culture as they enjoyed Jazz in the speakeasy of the prohibition, and the actual black soldiers who fought for the South in the Civil War and begun the process shown in Red Tails of respect for the men behind the color. Respect for the African-American was well on its way by natural causes. It was the looters of government who used the Civil Rights movement to grab power, create bloc voting groups, and push social programs in the 60’s and 70’s that distorted history, and ironically created the falsehoods in education that many of the current movie critics are functioning from.

It’s not that those men of the World War II period did not abuse their wives, or tie up their children into dog cages and torture them, or did not run around womanizing and getting drunk. The difference between the age of Red Tails and today is that the behavior is now accepted, so watching a film about characters who are either squeaky clean, or are trying to be squeaky clean is an accurate representation of the era, and Lucas clearly loves the period so much that he poured $100 million dollars of his own money into a modern mythmaking endeavor, so he’s going to tell the story he wants to tell, and for Lucas, a true historian, he’s going to not only capture the time period, but also the propaganda mood of the films he grew up loving as a child. So the supposed insult from many critics that Red Tails has all the bravado of a John Wayne picture is to me the highest compliment. In fact, the movie is so good that if you did not listen before and are still reading then I urge you to stop right now at your computer and head to the movie theater. Finish reading this review while you wait for the movie to start on your phone because when the lights dim, magic will happen right before your eyes.

The picture opens with my personal favorite plane, the P-40’s on an attack run, and that’s the way I like a movie, fast and furious! And Red Tails is fast, the action is dramatic. It’s a grand, epic film that if directed by someone else, and produced by anyone but Lucas, the film would be touted for an Academy Award in the year 2012. The acting reminded me of the film Chicago, which was critically acclaimed. The dialogue reflects the period. If people think its cardboard, they need to go back and watch more films from that period.

For those who think the characters are unrealistically squeaky clean then I would suggest a visit to the next air show that comes near the town you live in. Over the summer, my wife and I met some of these Tuskegee Airmen at The Dayton Air Show where they routinely attend these events. So it is possible to shake their hands, and speak with them. They’ll tell you stories from those days and history will unfold in front of you. Were they squeaky clean—no. But they tried to be, and that’s the clear difference between the age of the Tuskegee Airmen and the modern young person.

Lucas is offering in his film Red Tails not only some very good role models for young African-American boys ages 7 to 19 to learn about, but a film for all young people to enjoy that is a pleasant alternative to the apocalyptic visions of today’s filmmakers who try to attempt their own versions of Star Wars, but get lost in the special effects and forget about the heart of the story, the characters and their likeability. But Red Tails is not just for the young person, but the historian, the airplane enthusiasts, the avid museum goers who number in the millions, there is no better display of old vintage planes anywhere. To see so many P-40’s flying through the air, 109’s, 262’s, and P-51’s was a serious treat that brought an epic quality to this picture that I personally found overwhelming.

I enjoy the company of these old pilots and enjoy thoroughly the time period of early aviation, which is why the only jacket I wear is a period styled flight jacket. Although I enjoy modern flying, I can’t stand all the rules of the modern FFA. I do not take instruction well, so having a tower tell me when and where I can land does not sit well with me. In the film Red Tails my favorite character was Lightening. I live my life-like Lightening does, so I particularly found myself attracted to his character. Lightening if he lived in the modern age might have found himself paralleling my own life, constantly in trouble and always in a fight. I don’t like to be told what the flight ceiling I’m allowed to fly is when flying near a municipality, so the regulations are a turn-off to me. I prefer the early days of aviation before all the rules when adventurers took to the air at age 19 and were given expensive airplanes to go up and shoot down the enemy and expected to land in one piece, and they did. Most of those planes did not have good heating systems, so the cockpits were cold a few thousand feet off the deck, and the rough conditions made for tough men. The demons that rot the mind of modern males who have adventure robbed from them with too many regulations in our safety conscious society did not rot the mind of the fighter pilots in the largely unregulated early days of flight. And it shows. If you shake the hand of the modern Tuskegee Airman you’ll see a man look back at you, not a watered down human being lacking real experience. When a 19-year-old took to the air to face every fear imaginable, and conquered that fear, they became men of a higher caliber. And that swagger, that higher caliber is what is seen in this film.

To keep that ambition alive in my own life I ride motorcycles here in the modern age to stay sharp. The big pistons on my 1500 CC motorcycle remind me of the big engines in the old P-40’s and P-51’s. When I ride to work in the pouring rain and the snow I get noticeably perplexed gazes. In fact just the other day I was pulled over by a West Chester cop who was shocked that I was riding in a torrential rainstorm down the highway on my way to Congressman Boehner’s Office. I had to attempt to answer the question the cop had about why I was riding a motorcycle on such a terrible day. The young fellow thought he would be looking at a maniacal lunatic of some kind when I took off my winter gear and face mask to reveal a middle-aged suburbanite on his way to a congressman’s office. The cop thought he hit the mother load when he pulled me over, assuming that nobody would be crazy enough to ride in such harsh weather on a motorcycle but a criminal of some kind up to no good. I couldn’t tell the cop that I rode in the hard winter out of a desire to stay strong, to harden my resolve, to reach for a fraction of the adventure old fighter pilots used to feel in my daily commutes.

My eyesight has always been 20/10 which is better than normal and my physical attitude is such that when I was younger I could have easily passed the Navy or Air force examinations for admission, and my intelligence would have easily qualified me for being a pilot in the military. But I couldn’t stand the idea of being in the military for years before I could fly. I couldn’t stand a drill sergeant harassing me. I couldn’t take orders and acknowledge anyone as sir, so military life was an out for me. I would have been attracted to the military in the days of Red Tails, but not in the days of Top Gun. There is too much math, too many rules, and too many computers who come between the pilot and their craft as a modern fighter pilot. Each day when I get up I start-up my big motorcycle in the cold of the darkened mornings and listen to the big pistons roar to life in the massive V-Twin, I think of fighter pilots like the Tuskegee Airmen, The Flying Tigers and the Great Chuck Yeager. This morning I had to pull back into the garage because one of my hydraulic lifters was starving for oil with a very noticeable “Tick, Tick,” emerging from the engine. This required an engine flush since the oil was a bit dirty, the viscosity was thickened in the near zero temperatures, and the hydraulic lifters weren’t filling because they were clogged from the hard weather. To run the engine with such a clog could ruin the piston tolerances, so immediate action had to take place.

The old pilots of the P-51’s had similar concerns. They listened to their craft and responded between their mechanics and the desire to fly into combat by the sounds that came from their war machines. Pilots listened to the way their pistons sounded as exploded gas was pushed out and a fresh mixture was pulled in. The mess halls between flights where card games went on and camaraderie among those who pushed danger to the limit bonded pilots in a unique way that is lost to the modern latte drinker in Santa Monica which is why Lucas had to fund Red Tails on his own, the studios just don’t understand these kinds of things anymore, because bravery and valor have been driven from our society. If Lucas wanted to make a film about some young twenty something’s who bar hop around LA, the studios would scramble for his project. But some black pilots fighting Nazi’s over Europe and empowering themselves to rise above their station does not fit in with the modern perception of history, so the project sat on a shelf as studios had no idea how to make or sell such a picture to the public.

I do everything in my power to avoid these pretentious types, the leeches of bravery that have infected our society. I instead from the back of my motorcycle seek the bar and grill with the heavily tattooed bikers and the earrings draped from their ears and noses who frequent such places because there is honor among them, at least in the fashion of pushing danger and a love of piston engines. I have more in common with them than I do the well dressed executives at the Katsuya restaurant at Americana at the Brand in Hollywood. I sat at the bar eating my sushi there one night and had to listen to a very sheltered couple both dressed in pink designer shirts explain to me the fundamentals of economics in America. This man and his friend were nice enough, but were obviously lacking experience in their lives, which I felt sorry for them because they were the same age as I was. Both men had six figure incomes so life in L.A was easy enough for them. They could shop at the Americana, and work in the valley, and never leave. Their biggest trip was a daring adventure over the mountains into Las Vegas in a coming weekend. They were complaining that they couldn’t get a flight out of Burbank soon enough. I suggested they rent a couple of Harley’s and ride there on their own. They gave me the oddest look—such a thought was incomprehensible to them.

I can’t imagine such a sheltered existence. From my perspective I would never dream of flying from L.A. to Las Vegas. It’s just too close. You can almost see Vegas from over L.A. just a few thousand feet above the city. It’s not very far at all. And on the back of a motorcycle there’s a lot of adventure from one city to the other.

I’ve been on motorcycle trips where I’ve met riders at a McDonalds in some far-away land for a group ride, and I find I always enjoy the company, not because most of the riders are hardened men who could have led more productive lives, or smell like B.O. and lack dental hygiene. We share in common a love of freedom and a willingness to brave danger to have it. To me, it’s the closest experience to being a fighter pilot like the camaraderie seen in Red Tails that I’m likely to get in my lifetime. Piston driven motorcycles and piston driven airplanes are brothers from the same mother but different fathers, but are family none-the-less.

Red Tails is a fantastic film that is about everything that is good about Hollywood, and everything that Hollywood used to be, and is still hungered for by the ticket buying public. That is why despite the poor reviews from a generation of people who have lost touch with their history, the movie does what it is supposed to do, entertain, inspire, and leaves the viewer hungry to know more about the subject matter. Because of Red Tails the History Channel will cover the Tuskegee Airman and at air shows little children will seek the hand of the real Red Tails like celebrities, which they deserve. That is the magic of movies, to extend into the daily lives of the viewer long after the lights come up in the darkened theater, a feeling of hope and inspiration. Red Tails does all this and more, which makes it a successful film and one I will purchase on Blu-Ray when it comes out. And I’ll show it to my grandchildren before I take them to the Dayton Air Museum so they can see the real planes. Red Tails is about having a great time at the theater, then reaching for more in an experience that doesn’t just give back for the two hours you watch it, but will enrich your life for years as the name of a Tuskegee Fighter Pilot comes to your mind and evokes images of bravery and fortitude.

The idea of America and the film industry in general became one of the greatest exports of the United States because Hollywood used to make many movies like Red Tails. It is sad that such films are now a rarity, but thank goodness this one was made. George Lucas for many reasons that I’ll cover in a separate article has been under attack by the filmmaking establishment for years, and much of the anger toward Red Tails has nothing to do with the movie. Lucas is a visionary and that makes people angry. But Lucas is more than a visionary. He knows what society needs and he knows how to tell a story that stays with people in the deepest reaches of their minds. Red Tails is in many ways a movie about healing, not just in race relations, but in American spirit. It is an instant classic in my book and will prove to be a film that will be reflected on generations from now as a pivotal moment in Hollywood’s history that might just save it from itself.

If you’ve listened to me, then you are now sitting in the movie theater and the film is about to begin. So turn off your phone, buy some pop corn, and hang on tight. Let the Tuskegee Airmen take you on the ride of your life, and relish every frame of film shown on the screen, because what you are about to see is movie magic at it’s best, and captures the spirit of America in a bottle for all to enjoy for the price of a movie ticket.  That’s why I’m going to post this, then go see it again! 

In the title I thank George Lucas personally because I am grateful to his contributions of art to human civilization.  I truly am.  Without him, I wonder what would have become of the human race.  As we speak millions and millions of young people are playing the latest Star Wars online game called The Old Republic, which is a valuable social myth maker in its own right.  The impact Star Wars has had on so many lives is obvious.  But other films like Willow, which is a personal favorite of my wife and I, and the great movie Tucker: The Man and His Dream taught me at a young age how quickly and precisely why men like Tucker and Howard Hughes were pushed aside and attacked for their innovations.  Red Tails does for racism, bravery and American pride what thousands of films have failed to do, and is a skill uniquely suited to George Lucas who continues to bring quality to a society that seems hell-bent to destroy itself.  The subtle message to Red Tails is that if the pilots had behaved nicely and not pushed politics the way they did, nobody today would know anything of the Tuskegee Airmen.  They constantly pushed the limit of their orders and the law to arrive as heroes, especially Lightening.  So George Lucas……..THANK YOU!

Main Street U.S.A Closes: Barack Obama does what he does everywhere

with 8 comments

Barack Obama came to Disney World and did what he does everywhere he goes in the United States; he shut down Main Street USA. I’m sure the intentions of this visit were not to indicate the more metaphorical limerick described in that opening sentence, but that is the perfect summation of the President’s 4 terms in the United States Executive Office.

Everyone who knows me understands how much I love Disney World, and what I think of Walt Disney. While it’s clear that the more progressive caretakers of the Disney Company in recent years seem perplexed as to what made Disney such a successful company they have been wise enough to keep the original intents of Walt Disney alive well after his passing. Disney is one of those I would term as being an overman, a person who thinks beyond the conventions of the learned. One who can see clearly what is still invisible to everyone else. In fact, Disney World as a complex is a major portion of Florida’s economy. To understand just how important Disney is to Florida and the United States in general, have a look at this link of an article I wrote quite some time ago. You’ll learn some very interesting fun facts about Disney World:

http://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/06/12/thank-a-rich-person-how-rich-people-make-american-society-better/

There is a part of me who finds the Disney Company very misguided in shutting down Main Street U.S.A at their primary amusement park just so Obama can give a speech. It is a bad move on behalf of management to recognize the value of certain human beings. But they are not all at fault. The management at Disney World are in good company when they host the President. Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks have done similar events for President Obama, and much has been said about Tim Burton hosting the secret Halloween Party at the White House. Heck, even one of my favorite human beings on the planet sent the Chewbacca costume from Star Wars to appear at that same Halloween Party. This is baffling to me, this whole premise of creators, which film makers are, being seduced by politicians of little worth like Obama.

If I were the management at Disney aside from the fact that I think Obama is a worthless President with no management skill, I would tell the President that he was not welcome to shut down a portion of my amusement park to give a self-serving political speech. I would do that because the average customer at Disneyworld has far more value than a politician of any caliber. However, the behavior of these successful filmmakers and entertainment tycoons does not exempt them from poor judgment. I know many people who are of above average income who attend fundraisers for presidential candidates and other politicians that are anywhere from $50 per plate to $5000 a plate and this is the fundamental trouble with our government. People, who actually have the ability to make money and pay $5000 a plate for a meal to put money in a politician’s pocket, misplace the value of a politician. They don’t seem to have the ability to turn off in their minds the aptitude to not become star struck with politicians and treat them with celebrity instead of servitude. Politicians are public servants, not celebrities. They should never be held up as a celebrity under ANY circumstance at any level.

Politicians learned from Hollywood how to build their image into a celebrity appeal, and the same Hollywood producers and image makers who create the images we see, seem to not recognize that the looting politician is simply using the Hollywood strategy against Hollywood itself to gain money, and political influence within the organization.

If I were Hollywood I would be angry at those looting politicians, and I’d abandon the progressive politics that looters like Obama are trying to slide under the door, because Hollywood is being scammed. Wasn’t it Lenan who stated that if he could control Hollywood he could control the world? Well, they’ve tried to implement communism into Hollywood for years and many actors and producers looking for money for their projects to green light from financiers like George Soros steer scripts in a noticeably leftist direction. The result is that box office results for 2011 are about $500 million down from what they were a year ago. In fact, they are so bad that they are down to the 1995 levels.

It is not internet piracy that is causing films to fail, so the new SOPA and PIPA bills won’t save Hollywood. Piracy is up because the quality of films are down. People are not willing to pay good money for socialist propaganda. They might watch those films for free, but they aren’t going to flock to the theaters to see them. All anyone has to do to measure the sad state of depravity that Hollywood is currently in is examine the James Bond franchise of late. Compare the Bond films of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s to the 90’s and the now the dismal 2000’s. They’ve lost their way with the Bond films. Where are the Bruce Willis films? Who are the new tough guys; because that’s what people want to see. That’s what movie goers are willing to pay for. Who are the new Clint Eastwoods, Harrison Fords, Steve MacQueens? Hollywood has Johnny Depp but he’s more of the type of actor like Dick Van Dyke used to be, who is so talented that he could cover any role. Captain Jack in the Pirate films is an iconic role, but Depp is not an iconic actor that sells a type of film. He is such a fantastic actor that he can play anything. Films are hungry for male studs and women who like to be women. The political agenda that the media companies have signed up for and imposed on their employees, the producers, actors, and writers, are being rejected by the typical American who think the product coming out of Hollywood is so worthless, that they either don’t go, or will only watch the films if they are pirated. If SOPA or PIPA takes away all piracy the American people will just blow Hollywood off all together.

Hollywood is losing money because it got into bed with Bill Clinton in the 90’s, it worked against President Bush, actively and now it’s back in bed with Obama, and half the nation hates these presidents, so Hollywood has isolated it’s market share to only half the nation who are stupid enough to blindly accept the progressive images Hollywood has been trying to sell. So like everything that touches government, who is made up almost exclusively of looters, people who have no ability to produce on their own, but can only steal their worth from others, the relationship Hollywood has had with politics has hurt it desperately.

So it is quite appropriate to have President Obama shut down one of the most successful tourist destinations on the planet with his looting presence. The current managers of the Disney Company have only Uncle Walt to guide them, because they don’t have new ideas, or the ability to produce them. And Obama is in the same boat, he has no new ideas, he’s a pawn for the global socialists, and he looks to looting presidents like Woodrow Wilson, F.D.R, and L.B.J, for guidance. But he’s not an original, yet Hollywood treats the president as such and falsely makes Obama believe he has value where he is simply a looter who has turned the Hollywood image machine against the image makers themselves. But as Main Street U.S.A shuts down to qualify a token king of America so he can speak about programs to promote tourism, to the company that is best at it. The elemental ideas of Americana hover like smoke at such speeches only to be seen but unable to be touched by the looter mind. They can only describe what they see, but cannot feel it, let alone maneuver it.

The reality of the situation is that tourism will increase if the president could lower taxes so taxpayers had more disposable income. Yet Obama is intent to loot more money for more government programs and believes that by shutting down the most popular tourist destination in the world is the way to increase tourism. It’s the same mentality of shutting down energy sources so that American’s will buy into the President’s Green Policies. But none of the people involved in this epic meeting know what to do next. The President is a looter of the public, and the Disney Executives are looters to the estate of Uncle Walt.

But the real America and the answers it can provide to all these modern problems exist just outside the roped off area the President occupied in the closure of Main Street. It’s over near the Liberty Tree and is above the Liberty Tavern in a window above the Christmas Store, it’s a lone gunman with his barrel sticking out the window standing guard for the tyrants who might come and rob the town of its liberty. You see, Uncle Walt knew what all these modern pinheads have forgotten, that the spirit of America is in that window, and is reflected in the Liberty Tavern itself, and is under the Liberty Tree overlooking Tom Sawyer Island. It’s not at the podium of a pathetic king who wants to exercise his looted power to stand in front of a castle with the same immature ambition that a young girl hopes to meet Cinderella in that very castle. And it’s not in entertainment executives who have allowed a looter to appeal to their celebrity desires. The answers to all America’s problems are in the people who were shut out of the ceremony, and this is why Hollywood and Disney specifically is facing financial setbacks in not performing to the expectations of their market share.

Movies are ultimately about ideas not special effects. And theme parks are built on treasured ideas from movies that touch the soul. The desire for a family of four to travel to Disney World or Universal Studios is to relieve the magic of the movies they love. At Disney it’s Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Toy Story, and at Universal Studios it’s Terminator, Twister, The Mummy, Jurassic Park, Jaws, Spiderman and The Hulk. Tourists won’t flock to a theme park to ride a MILK roller costar or the latest George Clooney political flick. And until Hollywood gets it, and stops bending over for looting politicians like Barack Obama and putting money into the thieves pockets, the Hollywood market share will continue to plummet.

Hollywood, you will have to choose, will it be progressive reform where you play the role of the propaganda machine for a corrupt group of looting politicians, or will you choose the way of the dollar and pursue the avenues that audiences are truly hungry for, values established in “Old Hollywood,” as modern progressives term it, in a day when movies meant magic and hope, the ideas that built Main Street U.S.A in the first place?

Old Men Wondering What Happened: The Payday of The Great Society

with 4 comments

Even though I am still angry over the coverage by the two guys in the video below, and their involvement in repealing Issue 2 in Ohio, I couldn’t help but be a bit touched by these two men who are both in their 60’s and are wondering now in 2012 what happened to America. What happened to the Great Society of Lynden B. Johnston and the dreams of John F. Kennedy? What happened to the America of the late 50’s and 60’s when Bill Cunningham of 700 WLW and Sheriff Jones of Butler County where just starting out in their adulthoods? Where are the promises? Where are the benefits? What happened to America? Listen to their very heartfelt discussion here.

Millions upon millions of college graduates are discovering that they were lied to. In the early 1990’s when Ross Perot was declaring that there would be a “giant sucking sound” when NFTA was signed is the America we are currently in. Taxes and regulations have pushed businesses to other countries. America has been positioned by several globalists’ presidents starting with George Bush Sr., then Bill Clinton, then George Bush Jr., and now Obama to pull America into a world ruled by the U.N., and that has taken away the paper factories in Hamilton, that Sheriff Jones was talking about. The unions killed the automotive industry too, which also used to be in Hamilton. In fact, most of the technical jobs that America used to be good at are gone, now overseas while the foolish government schools encouraged an entire generation represented by Cunningham and Jones to become doctors, lawyers, and politicians.

And America shows what a country made up of lawyers looks like as litigation is at an all time high. There are so many doctors that they’ve had to invent diseases to convince people to use their services. And politics is a travesty upon the American philosophy and for all practical purposes is a complete joke that has no respect of the people the politicians represent. Greedy professors at universities have demanded higher and higher wages, many of them making over six figures and for doing what? Then to pay for these dangerous, ideological academics, public colleges have had to increase their tuition rates to extraordinary amounts breaking the back of the parents who just want to send their kids to the colleges to get a decent education. But that’s not what’s happening. All the creation jobs are moving overseas, America only has service jobs to offer these students coming out of high school and college, and those service jobs do not pay what the kids were promised when they racked up a $100K tuition bill.

The Great Society of the LBJ’s and FDR’s were an incomprehensible failure and the results are pouring in. Only one generation of that Great Society did well with the inventions against the Constitution that those Presidents engaged in to deliver our society to the circumstance it is currently in. The jobs are gone because the looters and lawyers drove them away. The high expectations of all the college graduates who want their own office in a plush environment, and end up in a cubical working for yet another financial firm selling 401 K plans that are virtually worthless in a market controlled by socialist tendencies, have proven irrefutably catastrophic. There are not enough skilled workers now who know how to weld, how to turn a wrench, or to tap a bolt. America let The Great Society and the liberal teachers of government education to teach our young to not change their own oil in their cars, to not put roofs on their homes, or even fix a dishwasher. We have an entire generation of young people who don’t even know what to do with a hand tool. In fact, it’s considered fashionable to not know how to handle a hammer, or drive home a nail. We have social engineering in public education to thank for that. Young people are more interested in their sexual orientation rather than being concerned about developing an actual skill they can use.

I was working with group of engineers the other day, young people right out of college and we were pulling a threaded bushing out of a tooled surface. The thing had wedged in place and could not be removed with any idea passed around the group. I approached and wondered what the holdup was and they told me of their dilemma. I pulled out my Leatherman tool off my belt and grabbed hold of the bushing after tapping it a few times with a brass hammer, and twisted in increments with a technique I learned years ago in a machine shop. The bushing came loose and the young engineers were looking at the Leatherman like I held some thunderbolt from the heavens. They were utterly perplexed at how easy it was to remove the bushing.

That is why America is failing. Kids have learned all the wrong things. Their values are wrong. Their intentions are wrong. And their ability to adapt is severally handicapped with an education given to them by the same greenie weenies who wish for America to become just another state in the United Nations. America has been robbed of its wealth in money, technology and business. But it has also been robbed of its common sense, and has trained its youth to be service oriented instead of skilled. Sadly those things happened to America on the watch of the two guys speaking above. Their conversation is like the many thousands of similar conversations going on all over the country right now among the same demographic age group, they are asking, “What went wrong. Why didn’t we see this coming?”

The generation of The Great Society didn’t see it coming for the same reasons that we go to a magic show and try and figure out the illusions. The Great Society was intended to deceive and so it did. But the cost of the illusion was not a simple ticket to a show. It was our country, our economy, and our very souls. We have been lied to, and now it hurts to realize it.

I look angrily at this group of people who voted for and supported this Great Society, because they left my generation with a mess to clean up. We have to be the bad guys who must point out all the faults of those foolish presidents who gave away what wasn’t theirs and made promises they weren’t equipped to keep. And people will suffer as a result. Young people will not have the jobs they expected. Going to school will not guarantee a good and stable life where everything that breaks can be hired out to a specialist. Tomorrow’s American will have to be more like the American’s who built the country. They’ll fix their own cars and dishwashers. They’ll grow their own food. They may even make their own cloths. Because the lie of the Great Society that promised a utopia for all the unskilled to gain through academics a respect that would carry them through life has come up for payment, and the debt will prove painful.


America can and will be good again, but not until the young engineers, the grocery store clerk, the banker, and the waitress can learn to use a Leatherman tool to fix a simple problem. It is not in the education and transformation into an academic that makes America strong. It was, and will always be, the ability of the American mind to figure out the solution to problems that leave the overly educated academic reeling for weeks, because their minds were destroyed by the illusions of The Great Society. In the meantime, the old men will ponder what changed in the years gone by, and will feign astonishment at the circumstances of modern America. But the solutions will not be in more of The Great Society, but much less of it, so that individualism can return to the theater of American ingenuity and the skilled hands that manipulate a Leatherman.

A CURE FOR CANCER: So why does the FDA want to kill us?

with 5 comments

I do not go to the doctor except when I have tissue repair that is beyond the ability of superglue, or there are internal structural problems. I never go to the doctor for a sickness; I require my body to heal on its own, to work out the puzzle and rally to defend it from diseases. I do not take drugs. I consider pharmaceuticals to be welfare for the body. It makes the body weak and dependent on assistance just as it does for whole groups of people. Drugs make the body a slave just as welfare makes people slaves to government. My love of freedom does not just exist as a political philosophy, but is dominate in my personal philosophy as well. I do not trust medicine, or doctors for the same reasons I don’t trust politicians, and educators subscribing to a greenie weenie philosophy. And I do not trust the government divisions like the FDA, the EPA, the Department of Education, et cetera because they are simply monopolies who control the free exchange of ideas to protect the empires they build. Anyone who knows anything about lobbies in Washington knows that the pharmaceutical lobby is one of the most powerful lobbies on Capital Hill.

The Food and Drug Administration was created obviously with good intentions, as all ideas are, but the trouble is like the EPA, they are a monopoly with too much power, and this makes them corrupt since lobby power bypasses the checks and balances of our Republic and causes those government agencies to act against the American people instead of protecting it, as they were intended. As it stands now the FDA is a corrupt organization that is standing in the way of free enterprise, which can bring to the world new developments in science to greatly improve the health of all people, but instead serve to advance a political agenda that is set by lobbyists. At the FDA, it is controlled completely by the pharmaceutical lobby which desires for people to become sick just enough to become addicted to the drugs they manufacture. Pharmaceutical companies desire for people to become sick, so they can profit off of a prolonged death. They stand very much against any medical techniques that sponsor regenerative growth, reversed aging, and elimination of cancer, because those pharmaceutical companies are using the FDA as their personal arm of authority to crush competition before they ever get off the ground. To get a taste of just how bad the situation is, have a look at this video.

To the reader who thinks this proclamation is too far into the realm of conspiracy, I bring to your mind the situation of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who has developed a cancer fighting method called Antineoplastons which has successfully treated cancer patients of some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer without chemotherapy or destructive surgeries. His methods have shielded his patients from becoming addicted to drugs for the remainder of their lives. That’s a wonderful discovery—right? Well, if you’re the FDA and you want to maintain the monopoly that pharmaceuticals have over society, then Dr. Burzynski is your enemy. That is why even though Dr. Burzynski saved many lives and cured them of their terminal cancers, the FDA attacked him with 4 Federal Grand Jury trials over a decade attempting to indict Dr. Burzynski to stop his practice of healing patients using Antineoplastons.

In 1995 a fifth relentless Grand Jury attempt by the FDA finally indicted Dr. Burzynski resulting in two federal trials with two sets of jurors pursuing a maximum sentence of 290 years in prison and $18.5 million dollars in fines. Both sets of jurors in the end found Burzynski not guilty of any wrongdoing. Burzynski has prevailed and has now completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 and is beginning the final phase testing. To help cover the $300 million dollar cost of funding the final phase of qualification Burzynski put out a film called Burzynski, The Movie. It covers the 14 year journey of Dr. Burzynski and his patients to bring to the market of free enterprise a cancer fighting technique that will save millions, upon millions of lives. But anyone can see how difficult the FDA made if for a Dr. in the medical field who had a slam dunk method of solving much of the worlds major health concerns, to not only prevent Antineoplastons from becoming a legitimate medical option, but to put Burzynski in jail for the rest of his life so the good doctor would not be a threat to the pharmaceutical lobby who wanted to protect their empire.

To understand how evil the FDA is behaving in the Burzynski situation, or the deliberate restriction of energy methods used by the EPA, or the ATF, or the Department of Education, the labor unions, virtually every government organization who seeks to protect their jobs with constant harassment of new ideas I can report a lunch conversation I had just the other day with a group of people who work for the defense industry, and are hoping for a war with Iran. These men I had lunch with weren’t bad men. In fact, I’d call some of them distant friends. However, the desire to inject into their lives a secure government contract was the dominate thought on their minds. They like everyone else worry about bringing home money to their families and having a good life. So they wish for war with Iran to keep money pouring into the defense of the United States. This is why the super secrete Skull and Bones society at Yale has WAR as it’s mantra, and why many of the wealthy friends of these people invest their money in defense oriented businesses. War gives governments reasons to make new laws, and spend money on government employees and technology. War is good for the defense economy. And just the same, sick people are good for pharmaceutical business. People who have cancer are good for the millions of nurses, doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, grocery stores who sell drugs, the countless American employees who work in the industry of maintaining a gradual slow death of American citizens. They do it because they wish to stay employed, not for the ultimate goal of restoring life.

Human beings because they are essentially selfish creatures do not think of the mangled bodies war causes. They only want a pay check so they can live. And the people who work in the business of pharmaceutical companies do not consider that their drugs are slowly killing millions. They simply want to make a living, and the FDA is there to protect those jobs from threats like “INNOVATION.”

Oh yes dear reader. You do not have to die. You do not have to be sick. You do not have to drive a car down the road at a pathetic 70 M.P.H. You do not have to attend a government school to become intelligent. You do not have to worry about Green Technology and limited power on earth. You do not have to worry about running out of money. All the problems above are issues created by government with the sole intention of maintaining their monopolies. Free enterprise has all solutions to every problem with infinite wealth building possibilities. The only reason we do not have them is because of the world’s push for socialism, which is just a way to maintain their monopolies of control. Just like the FDA going after Burzynski because the Doctor had a better method of curing cancer, the FDA and the larger congressional and presidential administrations behind those government divisions were concerned about the jobs lost if the pharmaceutical companies lost their monopoly on sickness. Because lost jobs mean lost votes, the thieves of government want the ability to continue to loot from the tax payer, so they will do anything to maintain that easy revenue, even if it means stopping the solutions to cancer to do it.

I have written much on this topic of government standing in the way of innovation. For just a few examples of what the government is holding us back from I invite you to view some of those articles for more information which collaborates with the information shown here, just to show that it’s not just the FDA who acts against good ideas to protect monopoly power of its lobbyists. You can see many of them collected at this posting. ENJOY!

http://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/12/08/kepler-22-is-discovered-by-nasa-the-pivot-point-of-human-history/

This is why I do not go to the doctor. I do not seek guidance from inferior minds who serve monopolies of death. I look to myself to solve problems and when I discover them I’m inclined to share, because I believe the world is full of infinite ideas. In fact, I write here everyday not out of fear that someone will take my words. I do not write here to make money. I can always come up with new ideas because I’m an idea factory. I do not understand the term “writers block,” I do not understand sickness. I do not understand regulation of power, because to me, everything can be solved. I do understand Dr. Burzynski, Paul Moller, (referred to in the linked article) and many like these men who have the ability to think outside the box and bring society a never-ending supply of whatever it desires. And when we run out of room on earth for all the people, we can take our act into space, to the moon, to Mars and maybe even Keplar 22. The only reason your loved one must die is to fulfill the prophecy of the looters in government who are so short-sighted that they cannot see the forest for the trees. Death, war, sickness, and scientific limitations will always permeate our lives with darkness and evil, so long as the restricted minds of thought and imagination rule as thieves in government.

Men like Dr. Burzynski are the men of the overman, and should be the ones who set the pace for all that humanity requires without the restriction of the looter to waste their time and energy with the troubles of the mediocre. It is those like Burzynski who carry atlas on their backs as the government looters of the FDA, EPA, DOE, DOT, Congress, The Senate, The White House and all others clamor on to be carried about by the sheer strength of the overman, yet offer nothing to help but the burden of their weight.

The difference between the two modes of thinking, the looter and the overman, are simply ones of philosophy. The looter looks for collective salvation even if death is the cost. They see themselves as but a cell on the planet earth. The overman sees no problem that does not have a solution, and the universe is their playground. The earth is just one planet out of millions, and to restrict the mind to one small planet in the scheme of the universe is a foolish notion that is a quantum neglect, just as is cancer and the sicknesses that kill for no reason but the maintenance of a feeble empire.

A more extensive examination of the behavior shown by the FDA against Dr. Burzynski I believe has a greater revelation behind simple short-sightedness displayed in the microcosm of reality. Because in the macrocosm, I believe the many thousands of employees and lobbyists who act as cells in the arm of government known as the FDA attached to the body of government called America are more out of jealously than anything, for they identify at a primal level with the correct assumption that the FDA are very much like the cancer cell who lives by killing the health of a good cell. This is what comes to my mind as Obama rejects the Keystone Pipeline in spite of the wealth it would bring to North America by way of energy. The goal of the cancer cell is to kill, to destroy everything in its way till the body dies. And the FDA knows that they are a cancer cell to the medical industry and the wealth of the nation, and they sought to combat Dr. Burzynski in defense of their own in the cancer cells that would be killed in the treatment of Burzynski’s cancer fighting cures. The FDA sought to kill off the good Doctor before the Doctor killed off their friends.

Lucky for us they failed………………

Impeach President Obama: DOMESTIC ENEMIES MUST BE DEALT WITH

with 8 comments

“Emperor Obama expands government anyway!” That’s what the guy in the video below says about how Obama appointed Richard Corday to a new consumer watchdog position in the government. To term this activist president in such a way is completely accurate. Obama is an arrogant power grabber who truly believes he’s a dictator. He has very little respect for the United States Constitution, where he’s stated in the past that he believes the document is old, and requires constant revision over time………………..spoken like the true looting lawyer that he is.

Obama used a loophole in the recess rules to appoint Corday and he’s not the first president to do so. Both Bush’s used this practice, Reagan did, Teddy Roosevelt did, but Obama has taken it to a new level with this “bending” of the interpretation of the Constitution terminology with an activism that is shockingly disrespectful.

This is why I’m writing to my congressman, Speaker Boehner shown in the letter below, and recommending that he take immediate action to censure and or impeach President Obama from the office of the President of the United States for the simple reason that it’s the right thing to do. You can read the exact letter that I hand delivered to my congressman today for further context.

January 16, 2012

Speaker of the House
Congressman John Boehner
Butler County Office
7969 Cincinnati-Dayton Road
Suite B
West Chester, Ohio 45069

Subject: Appointment of Richard Cordray for Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Dear Mr. Boehner:

It is certainly not against Mr. Cordray that I address this to you, nor is it the involvement of presidential politics in an election year. It is simply a matter of the current President of the United States, Barack Obama taking steps, most notably the recent appointment of Richard Cordray for a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to abuse his power as president by-passing congressional approval for initiatives he desires to set in motion.

The law means nothing if it is ignored, or manipulated out of convenience, and the President has openly participated in “high crimes and misdemeanors” as defined by Article 2 section 4 of The Constitution with his willingness to abuse his power to bypass the checks and balance system put in place with a congressional body. I understand fully that such an act by a Congress led by you is difficult and would go in the opposite direction of your attempts to work in a bi-partisan way with the president and his political party.

I sympathize that any act of impeachment or censure that would be mandated by a majority vote of Congress most likely does not have the two-thirds vote in the Senate to pursue such a measure to its end. But that does not eliminate the necessity for action by the branch of government that you represent on my behalf. I am troubled to consider what inaction by this Congress will mean in the future, if this abuse of power is not checked against the balances of protection the Constitution creates to prevent extreme activism on behalf of this President and future Presidents who will point at this time and the case-law that follows to maneuver and erode away the United States Constitution even more.

The acts of aggression were not done by you or your Congress, and I would hope that you would do as you swore to and protect our Constitution with your office and not feel you must shoulder the blame on yourself or your political party. But feel free to declare it was me, your constituent who demanded action in the pursuit of justice, because it must be done, or worse will befall us in the years to come.

Sincerely Yours,

Rich Hoffman

The strategy of Emperor Obama is the classic Cloward and Pivan tactic of overwhelming a system with so much information that nobody can fixate on any one issue. In this last year, the Obama administration has launched the Attack Watch website connected to his campaign page asking Americans to inform against other Americans who disagree with the President, he pushed for aggressive language in the NDAA Act and signed it on New Year’s Eve, this after ramming health care down our throats in the first year of his presidency which is on its way to the Supreme Court where Obama is counting on the commerce clause to create case-law against the Constitution severely weakening it further, he has used his Justice Department as a personal weapon to try to advance tougher gun regulations with the failed “Fast and Furious” scandal that makes President Reagan’s Iran Contra Affair look like a child’s game. As 2011 was ushered in as a New Year one year ago, it was Net Neutrality that grabbed for more power through the FCC, and now we have aggressive legislation being supported by Obama to regulate the internet.

Obama works fast, he pours on so many issues that the media who eats out of his hand cannot keep up with the stories fast enough. With a smile the President waves off all prying eyes with the skill of a magician, and when the eyes pry anyway he declares racism, or plays class warfare between the rich and some made up middle class who seek to trade away their freedom for the feed which comes out of governments hand like cattle to the feed wagon. History will show that Obama is a bad, corrupt man, who his deeply troubled like many Roman Emperors who became tyrants. Nero comes to mind. Nero was rumored to have played a fiddle as Rome burned, and Obama seems to be attempting the same thing in America. Obama is proof that every family needs a good strong father in it; because the lack of one in Obama’s life seems to have destroyed his ability to tell right from wrong and left holes in his life that only power can fill.

Thinking back on how Obama ran for office in 2008 swearing to close down Guantanamo Bay and criticizing the water boarding of terror suspects, he has now signed into the law of the land the NDAA Act that allows the water boarding of Americans. Where are his concerns over human rights and peace now? Do any of the fools who voted for him still think he’s honest, and well-intentioned? He has shown the pattern over the last four years of being incredibly aggressive, power-hungry, manipulative, and out-right brutal. He counts on the masses to be too stupid to call him on it, and he trusts that his skin color will prevent any body of justice from coming after him, because he has armies of collations that will shout down his attackers as “racists,” if they do. By the way dear reader, do you know what water boarding is? Do you know what the NDAA professes to do to you if you fall on the wrong side of government opinion? Have a look.

In relation to everything mentioned above, Obama right after signing the NDAA Act came to my state of Ohio, which is a battleground state for him, and picked a Ohioan in Corday to expand government to his liking, and then blamed Congress for his “need” to violate the checks and balances of the Constitution for the sake of the country, as if he were the declared savior of it. In fact, he has recently declared himself as a “Warrior of the Middle Class,” and virtually everything he is doing, he’s doing for the selfish notion of getting re-elected, since he is so drunk on power, he knows his life will be meaningless without it. President Obama is the classic con man, and we’d expect to see his type as the sleazy car salesman at a junk dealer, or that pervert who picks up drunk women fresh off the rebound close to the time a bar closes. Typically lowlife characters like Obama do not make it to such a high office, but within the United States there are forces who wish to see American destroyed, so Obama has over a billion dollars in contributions to fight with in his war chest, so even an inept, power-hungry oaf like him can appear to be a brilliant strategist.

This is why Congress must act against the president to not only defend itself from a very aggressive president, but to defend our Constitution from an enemy who resides in our White House. When public servants take the oath of office they swear to protect the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic. Well, we have a domestic enemy to the Constitution in the current President, and he needs to feel the justice of those who seek to protect it from people like him.

I encourage you dear reader and do as I have done, copy and paste the letter I wrote and fill in your own information if you’d like. But do write a similar letter to your congressman urging them to act on your behalf to bring justice against the abuse of power that President Obama has taken against our Constitution, and a willingness to slap each American in the face in a mad quest for power that is as insane as the most feared, and tyrannical of the Roman Emperors.

A Window without Glass: Jean Schmidt and lobbying on K-Street

with 11 comments

WARNING–WARNING…………..I need a few hours of your time.  Be sure to read this through, then watch every video completely.  I know it’s a lot………..but it’s for your own good. 

The House Ethics Committee in Congress is a scrub organization designed to white wash the sins committed by members of congress for the goal of keeping corruption flowing in full force. The corruption comes from lobbyists on K-Street which everyone in Washington know about, and seek to protect their access to the tree of fraud that has been made out of our body of government in all three branches. When we speak of members of political influence we often term things in the political right and left categories. But to me, many politicians even on the perceived political right are way far to the left of me, and such people are those like Jean Schmidt, who is a Republican, but is reported to be one of the 14 most corrupt members of congress there is, which is quite a statement. To learn what some of the allegations are against Jean Schmidt, Doc Thompson of 700 WLW and Chris Finney of C.O.A.S.T discuss the issue on the video below:

When I hear the list of wrongdoing Finney named off involving Congresswoman Schmidt I can’t help but think about how broken the entire system is, because Schmidt is labeled a political conservative, she frequently attends Tea Party events, and puts on a pleasant face in public appearances most of the time, yet she is wrapped up in lobby scandals. She reminds me often of the school teacher, or superintendent who begs for more tax money, and has a face that you want to trust. Most of the time when we think of corruption we have an idea of a man with a mustache and a comb over sporting a pot belly hiding in an airport bathroom with his pants down around his ankles looking for some sexual solicitation with another man while publicly pretending to support family first initiatives. And while much of the time our instincts are correct about these types, all too often, the looter, the deceiver of your hard-earned money and seeker of your trust looks like the everyday person.

Some of the worst looters that there ever where are those who can deceive while pretending friendship, yet at the same time working toward the intentions of scandal. And our government is filled with these people like Jean Schmidt and worse who we pay good money to do our business, but they sell out too quickly for large amounts of money to be made as a political insider.

There is no question that the power-brokers, the politicians on the right and the left who are both way to the left of me will say that Rich Hoffman is a radical right-winger. “He’s crazy,” they might say. And the minions who eat from the power-brokers hands in the media are worse, they are so broken as a society of people they aren’t even worth the breath that comes from their bodies. I consider the exhaust spewing from a car in 15 degree weather to have more value than the apologist who utters socialism from their mouths about the middle class. I am tired of those who proclaim that racism is alive and well at the expense of freedom and that girls should be in the Boy Scouts and boys should be in the Girls Scouts. I am tired of the feminist who declares that she doesn’t need a man and can raise a family without one. And the two men who think they can raise a well-balanced child without a mother. I’m tired of open borders which is designed to cheapen the value of American Citizenship. I’m tired of hearing about slavery when slavery is going on right now at K-Street. I’m tired of everyone letting a dictator rise to power because he’s black while the blacks I supported for office are attacked and smashed to oblivion because they are too politically to the right. I’m tired of gun grabbing looters who wish to disarm us so they don’t have to worry about being shot while they try to steal from us. I’m tired of a public education system that started with the intention of spreading socialism conceived from the mind of Horace Mann with the best of intentions, but proving a dismal failure, and then building our entire society on the foundations of the broken blocks without question.

I’m tired of the practice of giving political criminals called politicians justification with a silent endorsement. And for congresswomen like Jean Schmidt it does not matter if she is a Republican, or that she attends Tea Party events. I am tired of public servants making a living off public office and using it as a platform to gain wealth!

I do not care what a thief thinks of me. I do not care what the con man, the sexual pervert, the manipulator, the schemer, and the political pundits of political correctness who wrote the book with all the rules, think. I don’t like rules and I’m not following them. I don’t like the direction these low-life types are taking our society and I’m certainly not going to follow.

Jean Schmidt is not to be worshipped as honorable, and neither is John Boehnor. If I saw John at the local Ace Hardware store I doubt I’d even say hi. And Barack Obama, I don’t even think I’d look twice at the guy. The only place I’d like to meet Barack Obama is on a basketball court one on one, full court so I could stomp his skinny ass to pulp with a score of 70 to 2.

I do not care or understand these things because I chose not to. I am happy with my thoughts which are elevated beyond the reach of these simpletons. I like my books and watching the trees blow in the setting sun through my front window as I read. I like the unique foods my wife makes and the way it smells coming out of the kitchen. And I like it when my family is all in the same place at the same time. But I like most to be left alone by the congested minds of the looters and their tangled thoughts. I like to be free of their comings and goings, of their lack of courage toward their weak perversions. I like to be free of the power climbers and their quests of self-importance, for something meaningful to be placed on their tomb stones. I like to be free of those who are preparing for death with each step they take in life, because they get in the way of me trying to live my life with each step.

I like to be free of the fear mongering, because I’m not afraid of anything, so all their chatter is only noise to my ears. They use their chatter to confuse the weak and make livings for themselves by looting the fearful, the fat assed panic driven mother, the man who is still addicted to his mother, the man who never overcame the power of his father with strength of his own. Those types are the tyrants of this earth and they prop up criminals in congress to be their princesses and princes because they seek those who are just as pathetic as they are for office. Even those nobles of thievery seek their king. Jean Schmidt with all her talk about Barack Obama was seen getting the autograph of the President at a joint session of Congress which says everything anyone needs to know about Mrs. Schmidt.

We can be angry at Obama but he’s just one of the looters. It is people like Jean Schmidt who function without any ethics, but simply speak whatever sounds good to the camera, and believes nothing, that give Obama his power. Why should Obama fear the people’s Congress when people like Jean Schmidt is one of its guardians? The biggest failure of public education is that it has produced such low quality people. It has made people who cannot figure out who to vote for because they are so stupid they don’t know right from wrong. They are stupid not because of their brains, but their education made them passive and foolish who worship some godly figure at the front of a class room. This has left their minds susceptible to the looters of politics like Barack Obama and Jean Schmidt who write laws for the rest of society they believe they are exempt of. And this is why a House Ethics Committee in Congress that covers up crimes of congress and hires PR directors to control how the public perceives the looting that goes on right in front of their faces exists, to put on a good face to the public while actually assisting corrupt congressional members to commit crimes at the tax payer expense.

Yeah, if I’m too far to the right for all those punks, goons, freaks and losers on the left, then fine. I can live with that and not lose one minute of sleep. And the more that these looters attempt to intrude on my life with their desire to rob me and my friends and neighbors, the more you’re just going to piss me off, because I cannot become so stupid to endorse their tactics with my complacency. If I dumped out of my mind every conceivable thought it has in it, I would still feel like a genius next to those buffoons in government and their insect like behavior that is driven off only primal instincts and blank initiatives.

If you doubt any of what I have said here, go back and listen to that recording between Doc and Chris again, and determine the extent of the accusations against Jean Schmidt and the system she represents. And decide how much merit the words printed on the paper these fools create in new laws and regulation really has in the scheme of things.

Not very much. Go ahead Congress, Senate and the President; pass your NDAA, the EEA and the appointment of more government positions so these lax minded buffoons can pretend they can create things. Their schemes are as flimsy as their morality, and as shown, is about as thin as a window without any glass. There’s nothing there but words on a page, which means nothing.

Oh, what is that dear reader–you want more?  Well, before we part, let me tell you just a bit more to this story. Here’s a quick look into the three former Fannie Mae executives who created quite a lot of trouble on Wall Street.


Franklin Raines was a Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Fannie Mae.

 

Raines was forced to retire from his position with Fannie Mae when auditing discovered severe irregularities in Fannie Mae’s accounting activities. Raines left with a “golden parachute valued at $240 Million in benefits. The Government filed suit against Raines when the depth of the accounting scandal became clear.

 

Tim Howard- was the Chief Financial Officer of Fannie Mae. Howard “was a strong internal proponent of using accounting strategies that would ensure a “stable pattern of earnings” at Fannie. Investigations by federal regulators and the company’s board of directors since concluded that management did manipulate 1998 earnings to trigger bonuses. Raines and Howard resigned under pressure in late 2004. Howard’s Golden Parachute was estimated at $20 Million!

Jim Johnson- A former executive at Lehman Brothers and who was later forced from his position as Fannie Mae CEO. Investigators found that Fannie Mae had hidden a substantial amount of Johnson’s 1998 compensation from the public, reporting that it was between $6 million and $7 million when it fact it was $21 million.” Johnson is currently under investigation for taking illegal loans from Countrywide while serving as CEO of Fannie Mae.
Johnson’s Golden Parachute was estimated at $28 Million.

These are crooks that we’ve given the ability to write laws against American citizens.  What measures do these criminals employee to protect themselves from the punishment that is coming at them from the American people because of the looting that they have done?  Let my very good, personal friend Matt Clark tell you all about it.  Click the video below to listen.  Make sure you listen to the whole thing!

Oh, and what about our good friends from Frannie.  WHERE ARE THEY NOW YOU ASK?

 

FRANKLIN RAINES?
Raines works for the Obama Campaign as his Chief Economic Advisor.

TIM HOWARD?
Howard is a Chief Economic Advisor to Obama under Franklin Raines.

JIM JOHNSON?
Johnson was hired as a Senior Obama Finance Advisor and was selected to run Obama’s Vice Presidential Search Committee.

They are all crooks and thieves who don’t even deserve the spit in your mouth or what you place in the toilet when you relieve yourself.  Keep this in mind when you go to vote, and remember, it is because most people reading this did not vote that allowed these looters to become elected in the first place.  So educate yourself and vote intelligently.  And don’t fall for the manipulations and smiles of those you think are your friends.  Judge politicians on what they do, not what they say.

“Rich Hoffman is an Idiot”:LOOTERS OF THE FOREST HILLS SCHOOL LEVY

with 17 comments

Darryl Parks of 700 WLW is right, it is difficult to be the focal point when one acts as a beacon of truth in a world gone mad. And that is how he started his Saturday show of January 14, 2012 revealing that his home school district of Forest Hills is attempting to pass a new tax levy using the superintendent to build consensus with the residents of Darryl’s neighborhood. Darryl was furious that his district is attempting to raise taxes, insulted is more like it. In reaction to the schools aggressive move he posted on his blog the salaries and benefits of the employees of Forest Hills Schools so that voters can see what is dictating the necessity of a new tax levy. You can see the Forest Hills School district costs here:

http://www.700wlw.com/pages/onair_parks.html?article=9614809

Darryl put out the call for support since he has helped with so many other levies throughout the city of Cincinnati over the years, and now he needs to know that he has friends and allies in his fight against tyranny from money grabbing public workers who use our children as hostages to obtain yet more money from the value of our properties. The best description of such an endeavor is that of legalized theft. That’s where the difficulties come in at being the lone voice of a particular region pointing out the hypocrisy of the big business of education that operates more like a crime syndicate or a Vegas casino as opposed to a palace of learning for the bright minds of our youth. So I called in to Darryl and let him know that I will stand with him in his fight against this oppression known as the Forest Hills School Levy of 2012. You can hear that discussion at the 16 minute mark of the recording below which became very interesting when a teacher from Lakota, where I have fought many such levies myself, called in and proclaimed that I was an idiot. Listen to that epic broadcast by clicking the video below:

The woman’s name was Kari, and as you could hear she came out with her guns blazing with the typical rhetoric she had heard about me from her friends and other teachers around the district. She didn’t know it, but I was laughing when I heard what her problems were with me, because the things she accused me of doing I never participated in. She professed that I attended meetings where I shouted down people who were speaking, which I never do. I always let other people speak, and I treat them with respect–100% of the time. So I knew right away that many of her statements were not based on firsthand knowledge but the kind of dialogue that goes on around water coolers. Kari also declared that my facts were wrong, which is another common tactic that the Lakota School system attempted to utilize in order to discredit me, trying to keep people from looking at the data I was presenting. Data such as this: (Read this if you dare)

http://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/12/30/document-request-from-lakota-the-kursman-incident/

So I pressed Kari to name one instance where the many facts I’ve stated publicly were wrong. I invited her to declare which of the facts I’ve presented at this website weren’t factual, and there are MANY facts here. Yet as usual she couldn’t do it and they never can. Because what the schools do, all schools because they are not run by local administration dedicated to their communities, but by centrally located education organizations who teach the Delphi Technique for a political agenda that has nothing to do with educating children, but in obtaining more and more funds from communities to prop up labor union goals and teachers like Kari are used as pawns in that game.  (TO GET AN IDEA OF THAT GAME WATCH THE VIDEOS BELOW.  THEY ALL GET THEIR SOLICITATION STRATEGY FROM THE OSBA AND THE LABOR UNIONS OF THEIR STATE.  THE GAME IS THE SAME FROM SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TO MASON, OHIO)

The facts the school systems don’t want the public to focus on are why they end up in financial trouble to begin with when the communities of Southern Ohio have been quite generous with their approval of tax money to support their schools, but it never seems to be enough. So people like Darryl and I have went to the trouble to say no to additional tax levies, and demand a fix to the funding structure in Ohio by denying additional funds to our local schools so that we can starve this beast of public education that never seems to get enough, has too high of impression of what it does socially, acts politically against our communities and our families, and is not producing the best of its kind in the world. NO, EDUCTION IS NOT WORTH INFINATE AMOUNTS OF MONEY! It has a value, and we are declaring what that value is when we turn down a levy.

At Lakota the property tax rate is $1,140 per $100,000. That is what residents approved so that is the budget at Lakota. If the state cuts money or the federal government cuts money that does not mean the local tax payers will pick up the difference. It means that when a voter says no at the ballot box that the superintendent must then work within the budget, which means you either have a layoff, or you ask the employees to take a pay cut.

The reason Darryl and I post the wages that these school employees make, is to illustrate to the community why the schools are in trouble, because the school boards and superintendents have allowed the wages to climb too high. At Lakota it’s over $63,000 per year on average out of 2000 employees, which is too high. You can see from Darryl’s list that Forest Hills has a similar situation. So by posting that information, these fighters of these tax increases hope to illuminate to the school itself how to fix the problem, by getting control of their budgets. If you do not wish your yard to look terrible, you cut the grass. If you want to control your budget, you cut your expenditures. You don’t keep building your house higher because the grass keeps growing. As administration management, it is the schools obligation to the community to control their costs, not react to them like a yard out-of-control.

As angry as Kari was at me at the start of the debate, when she was able to settle down and speak rationally, I asked her on 50,000 Watts of flame throwing power over 38 states and parts of Canada, “Would you have been willing to take a 5% cut to save some jobs,” and Kari responded without a second thought, “YES.” This confirms what I have long suspected, that many teachers, especially those making over $65K per year would be willing to take a 5% pay cut to save their brothers and sisters in the union from losing their jobs to a layoff. Yet at Lakota nearly 3 months after a third defeated levy attempt, the superintendent at Lakota hasn’t even went to the union and asked the question that I asked Kari on WLW.

The reason superintendents threaten layoffs, and cut programs at schools are not to balance their budgets but to manipulate the public with extortion. They use The Delphi Technique to play the extortion game with a smile on everyone’s face, but the game is still just as sinister. If you need a review of the Delphi Technique you can learn all about it here:

http://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2012/01/12/the-new-school-board-president-ben-dibble-starts-new-levy-campaign-of-2012/

Because the looted money comes from a trusted school official as opposed to a robber on a New York street doesn’t change the fact that taxpayers are being openly and legally robbed, and that makes me very angry. And it makes Darryl angry, and as long as there is life in people like us, we will fight that kind of tyranny with everything we have in us. WHY?

Well, it’s not to hurt people like Kari. My aim is to hurt the system used to turn Kari against me with the distorted facts she had at her water cooler discussions. The other employees of her school who use the Delphi Technique to manipulate the school employees into a collective brainwashing symphony that targets those of us who stand in the way of the open looting, are the perpetrators. Lakota as an organization had all those teachers convinced that what I have been saying is a lie, that my facts are distortions of reality, that I hate education. But based on what? The hearsay of a government employee who is protecting their right to double dip and make six figures when they clearly aren’t worth the money, an employee such as a superintendent, a principle, or a school counselor who has nothing else productive to do but whisper propaganda into the ears of employees and students are the advocates of misinformation, not me. It’s those same whispers from irresponsible senior administrators who coax our children to roam our community streets at night and vandalize the property of any tax opposition.

That is what Darryl and I are fighting against. While superintendents all across Ohio pretend to be CEO’s running massive organizations, we have revealed that they are just public relations personnel designed by the education system to always secure more funding to feed their big business machine with looted public money. They use the same tactics as presidents of the United States in lying openly to the public because they do not respect our intelligence. This is why the superintendent at Forest Hills Schools is having a “community” meeting where the good Doctor will share a coffee with the community and allow them to feel they are a part of the decision-making process. But the contracts are already signed folks, the money is already spent, and the superintendent of Forest Hills Schools knows it. All he’s doing now is using The Delphi Technique to win voter approval of the money he and his district have already committed to. And if you turn down this levy, he’ll ask again and again and again till you pass it. Because he’s not a manager, this superintendent of Forest Hills Schools, he’s a public relations salesman playing his part in the syndicate of big business education.

The smart thing to do in these confusing times is listen to Darryl Parks on 700 WLW and myself, and a handful of others who hold the torch up proudly and declare NO MORE………………HELL NO on more TAX INCREASES! Hell NO on more looted money from the values of our homes! HELL NO on this mafia like behavior that is public education. We are calling it what it is! To the employees like Kari they are just employees of the syndicate and their wages are high to keep their minds small, and their gossip focused around the water coolers. That’s why they think Rich Hoffman is an idiot, because they didn’t do the research themselves, but just listened to the rumors started by school officials using the Delphi Technique to manipulate them, which they are happy to do as long as the money is good, and the work days are short.

So when we fight teachers, it is not personal against you, but like soldiers on a battlefield you place yourselves between the objective and our current position, so if you become harmed in the crossfire and it is your own fault. You picked the wrong side to fight for so don’t be surprised when you become a casualty. If you do any level of research or thinking on your own, you will discover that you will be on the side of Darryl and I, and that you should be helping him defeat his latest fight against the villains of his own district, who have sabotaged his school with an ominous presence from a syndicate that doesn’t loot with a gun, but with kindness and handshakes. This is not a line of gray that will allow you to be half in or half out. Teachers like Kari are as numerous as stars in the sky, and once we get passed the animosity of our positions, we discover they are good people, like most people are. But it’s the system they service that is the villain, and makes them all accessories to tyranny as long as they blindly serve an institution they know full well is committing crimes against the innocent at many levels in trade for a healthy pay check.

That’s why Darryl and I post how much these employees make, so that the public can know how their money is spent, and you the teacher and administrator can know what your purchase prices is to turn your head away from the crime, and go gleefully on vacation. Ignorance is bliss after all………………..

And to the looters, liars, and manipulators who think The Delphi Technique will continue to hide your thievery………….sorry about the facts. They are pesky, but not going away.

Battle Hymn of the Republic: The Glory of U.S. Citizenship

with 16 comments

“To promise to protect enemies both foreign and domestic.” Those words jumped out at me while attending a naturalization ceremony my son-in-law was participating in to complete his long road to becoming a United States Citizen. The event featured representatives of over 50 countries, each one standing proudly to proclaim the new United States Citizenship. It was refreshing to see people from all over the globe seeking so proudly membership into the very valuable club of citizenship that many who were so fortunate to have been born in the America take for granted. Because many of those countries represented at this ceremony are living under the oppressive rule of tyrants in one form or another and it takes courage to just apply for citizenship, let alone go through the long process of actually obtaining it. For my son-in-law, it was an 8 year journey that culminated into a packed room at St. Dominic School in Delhi. In that room there wasn’t any discussion of political persuasion, racism, gender equality, there was just unification that people of many backgrounds were gathered, from every conceivable place to seek admission to a banner of freedom protected by The United States Constitution.
A choir of young people from that school came in and sung a number of patriotic songs including my favorite, the Battle Hymn of the Republic, a song that has been my favorite since I was 3 years old and they sung it in my church. I play the song often from my garage sound system while I shoot basketball in my driveway on hot summer days. It is the song of America and was quite fitting for this epic event.

As that song played and I listened to all the petitioners declare their American allegiance I wondered who the domestic enemies were by definition that these people were swearing to protect. The first thought to my mind was Barack Obama himself, who behaves as an enemy of America in his constant attacks against the U.S. Constitution specifically the signing of the NDAA Act on New Year’s Day and his constant desire to bypass congress with executive orders. American citizenship doesn’t seem to mean much to the president, probably because he lost his citizenship, not by his doing but his mothers when she left with Barack Obama’s stepfather back to Indonesia while the boy was still very young and not able to fend for himself. Obama applied to American colleges under foreign status and it looks as though Obama has attempted to lawyer himself to cover up that fact that he is an illegal president according to the provisions of the Constitution. Obama is proof that once the rules are bent once, as he has done to justify his presidential eligibility, then the rules will be bent again and again. For the Barack Obama types who function in our government, they are domestic enemies because they do not respect the Constitution as shown in their actions, because they seek to manipulate the obvious in favor of the gray areas. There is no question that Barack has managed to walk the gray area enough to prove he was a citizen born in Hawaii, but he doesn’t do such a good job of explaining his foreign status when returning to the United States to study. So he became a lawyer like the many other looters and thieves in public service and sought to manipulate the law to suit his personal agenda, which is that of a radical community organizer who seeks to uproot all the foundations America stands upon.

But he’s not the only one. I would extend the domestic enemy umbrella to include virtually all lawyers and lobbyists who seek to make a living off the tax payer instead of contributing to the ideals of the Republic. At this ceremony I found it disturbing that Senator Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown sent letters to the applicants as though their office carried some kind of weight in authority. The letters read as though both senators were noble kings of some province in Ohio instead of workers of the people’s business, just mere representatives in a Republic known as America. Brown is a constitutional revisionist himself who seeks to expand government at alarming rates, which is a very un-American idea. Virtually every petitioner for citizenship present was fleeing countries riddled with such ideas, so bringing those failed concepts to America could easily be viewed as an enemy to the American way of life. And Rob Portman, whom I liked quite a bit until he signed the recent NDAA Act without any justification wrote a letter that on the surface appeared patriotic, but the lawyer in him could not hide the contempt that is apparent in his profession. I have known Rob for a long time. He may have forgotten by now but I was the guy who videotaped the great debate at WLW when Portman ran for his seat in a special election to capture the Republican seat back in 1993. I also hung out with Portman at Longworth Hall when he was currying favor for the Ross Perot crowd in what was being called The Reform Party back then, where I spoke. Rob helped me and a friend get onto the roof of Longworth Hall and drape a huge American flag from the top that nearly hit the bottom of that tall building and brought traffic on I-75 to a near standstill as motorists slowed down to see. Portman sent me the first order for a t-shirt I designed called “Take an Axe to our Tax” in 1996, which made me feel there, was hope that after three years in government, Rob was still on the right side of things. Rob Portman is a guy I liked a lot, so you can imagine how it pains me to declare him a domestic enemy, because he voted in favor of the NDAA Act. The most dangerous enemies are those we like, those who draw our smiles, and leave us thinking they are good people, while behind our backs, they plot against us. Those are the worst domestic enemies.

For my son-in-law I know the domestic enemies he will be fighting are those of ideas. Recently, he anticipated that many family and friends from his home country of England would join him in the states, but they have all but bailed on him. After trying life in America under green cards, they are seeking the socialism of England over the freedom of America. It’s hard, especially among the youth to explain why they can’t have 6 weeks of vacations while working at a McDonald’s, and why they must learn to drive a car when they are used to riding a train. Socialism under the Labour Party in England appeared to be a benefit to all, but it has made an entire generation weak, and barely able to lift a fork to their mouths to feed themselves. When young people don’t even have the ambition to drive a car, they certainly won’t have the ambition to self-govern, which is the plan of those big government advocates, to make people addicted to their drug of socialism. My son-in-law has lost many loved ones because of socialism, in his quest for freedom. That socialism in England is the same socialism that Obama and his clan of education thugs and union lackeys are trying to bring to the United States. That’s why Cincinnati has a street car, and why the Obama administration wants fuel to be over $4 per gallon, and want smart meters on our homes to regulate our power output to support green initiatives. It’s why the government is pushing electric cars onto the Detroit Auto Show even though nobody wants them, and why the media is covering up the serious fire risk of the Chevy Volt, as those cars are catching fire due to battery cool down problems.

All those manipulators of a free lifestyle are domestic enemies, and are certainly under the classification spoke about at this ceremony as people to watch out for and fight if need be. A domestic enemy is not necessarily the terrorist who is trying to gather bomb making material to blow something up, or the would-be-assassin who is trying to obtain a gun to make a kill.Equally dangerous is the lifestyle reformer who professes to rob America of its Constitution through legal manipulation, who seeks to make gay marriage a priority over a balanced budget, who seeks to put so many people on the government feed nipple that they will always have the vote of the weak in a society mind numb and lax under socialism instead of thriving under capitalism that only is limited in the work one wishes to put forth.

I saw in that room a collected group of people who were happy to become citizens for all the right reasons and political motivations. To my mind they are more American five minutes into obtaining their certificates, than the politician who thieves off the tax dollar with the aim of a Florida condo and a yearly cruise from work they’ve provided of no value but a gradual erosion of The Constitution.
After the ceremony my family took my son-in-law to the Hofbrauhaus in Newport which is his favorite restaurant in the city of Cincinnati. There we drank the giant liter steins of Dunkel beer made behind the bar and ate a lot of food. I read the Constitution that was given to him along with the letters from the senators mentioned. As I looked it over I noted that Senator Bill Sietz was there, my nemesis on the Issue 2 referendum mentioned frequently here as one of those turn coats who chose big labor over the principles of small government. Sietz was one of those politicians who cried for change under Governor Strickland then when change came under Governor Kasich he left the governor hanging on a vine. After all Sietz was a labor lawyer and unions are a lot of his income. So he chose his livelihood over the preservation of Ohio and his network in labor.

The event in itself was a grand one. It was truly refreshing to see such joy on the faces of new American citizens. The relief these people must feel immediately after is something long-term citizens can’t fathom. As my son-in-law said, “I can travel now without my green card.” That one small notion made the beer taste just a bit better for him and the hundreds of others present that day. But for the politicians who hung themselves to the process like the looters they are, they gave the event a feeling of a married couple who truly despise each other but maintain an image of the happy family. The husband and wife put on a good face when they appear in public. But out of the public eye, they have an open marriage—the wife has many lovers all over town and out-of-town, and the husband does too spending most of his free time not reading about philosophy and history, but of new sexual partners on Craig’s List who might meet him somewhere for some new sexual adventure. That is our government, Obama, Sietz, Brown, lobbyists, attorneys, prostitutes, power addicts, officials of degraded character who have sold out the value of the Constitution for the ability to have value they do not maintain because they are lazy and weak of mind.

I would replace them all in government with the people who just obtained their citizenship on Friday the 13th 2012 in less than a second if given the opportunity, and the Republic of the United States would fare far better than its present course because it is this group of people who worked hard to get a citizenship that is coveted all over the world as excessively valuable, who appreciate it. Because it is this United States Citizenship that gives an individual the right to their own property, and the right to pursue freedom without being ordained by any political party, religious idea, or tyrant of heredity. America is all about the Battle Hymn of the Republic because the fight will march on, and domestic enemies to the Constitution will be met, and at the same time threats from foreign enemies will be confronted to preserve the value of a citizenship sworn to at St. Dominic School in Delhi under the idea and pursuit of freedom.

Meet my son-in-law and what he intends to do as he answers the battle call of an American citizen at this link:

The battle before us this time does not involve a war across the sea, or the spilling of blood anywhere on earth.  The battle we are fighting for now is to restore the idea of America after many years of abuse by greedy, unsophisticated, caretakers.  And to those who wish to maintain such a quandary in American culture, fear that song.  Because it’s coming for you!  The looters, thieves, and feel good police have hijacked it for too long, and it’s time to restore it to its rightful place in our popular culture.  For it is the idea of American culture that should be spread throughout the world as evidence by the gathering of those who seek refuge under the citizenship of being an American and why such a thing has so much value.  It is that value that we protect now through first art and literature and if those things fail, then with the gun.  But we will have that value.  YOU CAN TRUST THAT DEAR READER!  So wipe away that tear that is running down your face from hearing those songs, clean your gun so that it is ready, and in the meantime spread the word.

“DOG SEES”: The Ghosts of Bobby Mackey’s and my mechanical bull

with 4 comments

What goes through the mind of a slaughter-house worker in the days before the modern electric shock that is applied to animals prior to slaying them? Imagine hour by hour, day by day, week after week in a turn of the century slaughter-house slitting the throat of thousands of animals listening to the turbulent frightful last moments of an animal’s life and what that might have done to a mind over a period of time. Imagine that same slaughter-house with its troubled souls who died of natural causes but were so warped psychologically from their production line slaughter-house methods that the ghosts of those lost souls in anger at their eternal captivity on earth made a deal with what they believe to be the devil and coaxed a man to cut off the head of his pregnant girl friend and throw it down the well in the basement as a sacrifice to the devil. Maybe they did it just to see if they could, to vent their anger at their eternal captivity at the slaughter-house. Then a few years later, for those who know the history of Newport, Kentucky as Sin City, that served as the model for Las Vegas because of the prostitution, gambling and virtually every sin known to man. All the decadence a mind could conger up could be found on Monmouth Street and just up the Licking River in Wilder along the railroad tracks, a hot spot gambling house where a show girl named Johanna committed suicide back stage in that popular building formally known as the slaughter-house. The building would sit empty for many years after these tragedies until a country singer known as Bobby Mackey came along and bought it so he could open a country western bar and play live music every weekend. However, his music would reflect the haunted past of his new bar, as he discovered that his tavern was inhabited by two centuries of turbulent souls who had died and refused to move on to the next phase of life embedding themselves to the building now known as Bobby Mackey’s Music World.

Is Bobby Mackey’s haunted? Yes. Without question. My family, particularly my youngest daughter and my wife have a connection with haunted beings that eludes the logic of my mind. I do not have the same experiences that those two do. My oldest daughter is like me; she’s a bit too skeptical to believe in such things and based on my own observations I will have to determine that it’s because our minds aren’t tuned to see those things that live in between the cracks of reality. To satisfy my youngest daughters interests we have embarked on several ghost hunting adventures and could tell plenty of stories that would curl your toes, that defy scientific explanation, leaving me to conclude that something living in some form that exists outside of our visual, and hearing spectrums does roam the earth in abundance and does play a part in the daily lives of human beings. My family has visited the Lemp Mansion in St. Louis, Moonville out in Athens, Ohio. We’ve crawled through some of the most haunted cemeteries in the small hours of the morning known, and seen a lot of strange stuff, the most violent entity we encountered was a “Shadow Man.” (Click the link to learn more)

My family has chased down UFO’s with our car only to have the things vanish in the sky right in front of us. Locally at the Screaming Bridge in Liberty Twp, I recently shared my personal stories with a group of Overmanwarriors over lunch to not so much conclude spiritual presence at that place but added to the stories, the preponderance of some places on this planet that are filled with violence for no apparent reason. Some may call them demons. Some may call them ultraterrestrials. Some may call them troubled souls trying to move on to the next life. Whatever they are, they are there, and Bobby Mackey’s is filled with them. That’s why this episode of Ghost Hunters about Bobby Mackey’s attracted my attention because I like the way TAPS does paranormal investigations. They approach each case with logic and try to debunk claims, which 80% can almost always be explained away. When I watched this episode it brought back some thoughts to my mind that I had while visiting Bobby Mackey’s and it is the dog that fixates on the pole that has stuck with me. Later at the end of this show, if you’ll take the time to watch it, an EVP recording picks up the voice of something that says clearly, “DOG SEES.”

“DOG SEES” what? I suppose that scene strikes my interest because I recognize that animals see and hear things beyond human sense perception so what that dog was so interested in at the pillar in the middle of the bar is a mystery, then to have a EVP voice acknowledge that the dog sees something they think is hidden is a bit disturbing. My experience at Bobby Mackey’s is not from one of the ghost tours he offers on the weekends after the place has closed, or even that of a paying customer. Back in 1993, before it was well-known that the place was haunted to the general public, I bought a mechanical bull from Mr. Mackey for a business I was working on, and his staff took me and a friend down into the basement where the well was, supposedly in the heart of the haunted aspects of the place. That’s where the extra mechanical bull we were buying was. We paid $400 for the mechanical bull and left to get a truck to come back and pick it up as a series of catastrophes prevented us from ever being able to come back and pick up that damn bull. I refused to acknowledge it at the time, but it almost felt as though something followed us home and wrecked everything involving that mechanical bull for weeks thereafter. It was as though we had picked up at Bobby Mackey’s an unusual string of bad luck that defied logic.
I have been to Bobby Mackey’s as a customer listening to Mr. Mackey sing his country songs as patrons dance, drink beer and ride the mechanical bull in his popular country night club, and I’ve been there as a business interest in the bowls of the place, and yes, there is some unsettling emotions that come and go from your mind while there. It seemed to be much less when the place was full of people, than when the place was empty. And the basement had almost a wall of energy that seemed unusually aggressive. I’m a person that could have a bomb go off right next to me and I wouldn’t flinch. So I stay pretty calm even under the most troubling circumstances, and there was something about that basement that made me consciously have to fight back an overwhelming sense of doubt.

My experience with ghosts are that they are very much like everyday people, except more primal in nature. If you ignore them, you will find they won’t interact with you very much. If you pay attention to them and try to befriend them, then you could have some trouble. Because for whatever reason, these beings are stuck as a collection of spiritual energy that do not have bodies, and they are stuck for a reason. If you provide them with an emotional vehicle to latch on to and gain some attention, then you’ve given them what they were looking for. I prefer the TAPS method of paranormal investigation that is very scientific as opposed to the Ghost Adventures methods of Zack and his crew. But watch this next episode of Ghost Adventures where these guys return to Bobby Mackey’s and attempt to provoke the ghosts there, which appear to be up to 7 at a time with these guys. Picking a fight with a ghost is the same as picking a fight with a human. If you watch this episode you’ll see the ghosts react the same when called out to a fight. As I listen to the dialog between these ghost hunters and the ghosts I think of the numb to death slaughter-house workers who can’t seem to move on, who are stuck to that building in a primal state of defiance, and think nothing of killing and harming the living, simply because they are jealous of those who have bodies.

It is without question that there are many forces on our earth that science has not yet figured out, that only religion has attempted to touch. I don’t fear any human being, so I surely don’t fear a creature that doesn’t even have a body. And my mind is too secure to be penetrated by them, so there is little to be concerned about in my personal life from disembodied entities. But they are quite manipulative, and they do enjoy interrupting the minds of the naive, or intellectually challenged. They do visit often the drunk, the stoned, the human with vacant brain activity, and they do seek to live out their frustrations at being stuck to a region for an indefinite period of time.

For me—the most haunting clip in the above episodes is that dog, “DOG SEES.” Dog sees what? What is in that pillar that the dog sees and these spirits are so concerned about? That is a perplexing mystery that has me fascinated and might just call for another trip to Bobby Mackey’s so I can see if my mechanical bull is still in the basement. Sure, it’s been twenty years, but so what, maybe the ghosts have been riding it down there and kept it maintained. Who knows, but one thing is for sure. Something is going on at Bobby Mackey’s Music World that exists between our world and something else. It can be seen and felt now, even if science struggles with an explanation.
