I enjoy a nice babbling brook running through the mountains surrounded by trees and fresh air illuminated by sunrise firelight. Often I have slept on the ocean front to the sound of waves beating on a beach as a steady breeze pours in from offshore thunderstorms lighting up the distant night clouds like cannon fire from a distant battle. I have pondered often the forces of a cliff face as I rappelled down it and marveled at the magnanimity of nature. I have equally stared deep into the heavens and contemplated the countless galaxies of space and considered the perplexing reality of a multiverse. But what most impresses me is the mind of man and the ability of that species to overcome obstacles, invent tools of creation, and extend beyond the limits of nature to something new. What is marveled at when large mountains are observed, or the beauty of a forest, or the running water of a stream is the creation of nature into activity of which our short-term lives will only witness a fraction of. However, it is still destruction that is observed, mountains were caused by tectonic plates being forced together by earth forces, and trees grow, die, fall down and decompose, just like human beings. Water falls from the sky in the form of rain, runs across the earth, is consumed sometimes by creatures like humans, disposed of as waste and evaporates back into the sky to begin the process again. The work of man’s mind is the only life form in known existence to take all the raw materials of the planet and organize them creatively against the tide of chaos that exists in nature. A skyscraper is a deliberate construction of mankind that is organized and useful as opposed to the mountain that is simply the result of opposing forces colliding.
The current green movement which is simply the next generation of communism is attempting to take mankind back to worship of the earth the way tribal groups have in the mystic past. Their sole intention is to turn worship of the earth into a religion that has political consequences and their method is one of regression—of angst against the creation of mankind. They look at the creations of man, the space ships, the cars, the buildings and they hate them like natives screaming at lightning streaking across the sky. Their answer is to conduct a rain dance to appease the gods creating the lighting. Meanwhile, inventors like Tesla actually took the mind of man toward creating their own lightning. Inventors created irrigation as a way to take charge of their own destinies and stop wasting time doing a rain dance to appease some stupid god. Forget about rubbing a couple of sticks together to make fire, or waiting for lightning to strike and ignite a small blaze, mankind made ovens, and furnaces, and air conditioning units to control their environment so that they could be comfortable and invent even more things instead of running around looking for sticks to catch fire just to cook food.
Nature is the construction of Mother Earth, and the galaxies the inventions of the universe. But are those constructs superior to the equations E=MC2 or the nanotechnology of cell sized bots that can repair human flesh? When was the last time the earth invented anything new, or Jupiter, or Neptune? What have those natural products done except float in space and be bombarded by asteroids—their fates tied to their proximity to a dying sun at the center of a solar system? Where will the creeks, animals, and mountain ranges be during the next meteor collision, or the eventual explosion of energy at Old Faithful in Yosemite? They’ll all be destroyed, and what will there be left of anything on earth if the mind of mankind is extinguished as a retreat to the primordial worship of Mother Nature?
I would argue that the mind of man is more important than the saving of Mother Earth. The earth is inferior to man’s mind—the inventions, the potential, and the ability to shape its own destiny in spite of natural elements, such as planetary restrictions, life spans, and proximity in space to heating sources like planetary balls of fire we call suns. There was never a turtle that built an economy as sophisticated as humans, or an otter that built a train station. No bird ever invented a light bulb. And ants don’t write books, make movies, or create sophisticated music. We are amazed that dolphins and whales show signs of intelligent life, but even they are about as intellectually wise as an average 4-year old human—and what is so special about that? The reason we respect these creatures so much is that they are at least close to human intelligence—so why would human beings yield to them?
The real issue is one of creation and the value of those creations. Are the creations of nature more valuable than the creation of mankind? My answer is that mankind’s inventions are more valuable. Both, man’s and nature’s acts of creation are destructive in nature. Mountain ranges are the results of terrible destructive forces, and trees are daily fighting it out in a battle for sunlight. They don’t whip out stones to throw at each other, or fire guns, but trees are constantly at war with one another. One tree will spread its branches out over another one that is smaller to try to choke off its light so that the roots aren’t fighting for the same water supply. Don’t environmentalists know that? Are they so stupid but to look at trees and not see life forms at war with one another? Trees are not sitting in a forest singing campfire songs to each other living in harmony. They are fighting—and some of their battles go on for 50 or more years. The only reason humans don’t see them is because the battles occur without human reference and time frames. Every day spiders are catching other insects to devour for their personal consumption, mice are being eaten by snakes, fish are being eaten by bigger fish, and Great White Sharks are eating dolphins.
At some point the modern worshipers of Mother Earth decided that the way to deal with these tragedies is to revert to the past worship of earth as a deity and to appeal to its sensibilities hoping that human life would be spared some of this tragedy. But only mankind has even attempted to solve any of these destructive problems. At least humans know to replant a forest, to re-grow the food they consume, and to not poison the water they drink with sophisticated filtration systems. Only a human being has sought to mimic the abilities of a bird, the hunting agility of a lion, the communication aptitude of a dolphin, and actually offer alternatives to the stupidity of nature—the inevitable destruction that is always just around the corner with the next black hole consumption, or planetary impact.
Every global environmentalist on earth is wrong in its worship of earth. Earth is dying as we speak—it may take a few billion more years, but if left alone—it is dead. It will not live forever—it is not a god. It is not worthy of worship. Earth is a tool for man’s mind. It is meant to be a lunching point for human consciousness and nothing more. It can only be hoped that 4 billion years from now to 10 billion years that the minds of man will still live in the universe and will punch beyond the confines of that barrier to whatever is beyond it. Earth will have long been gone by then, every turtle, every bird, every fish, every drop of water in the ocean ripped off the planet to become water molecules in the vacuum of space by expansion of the sun. Every idiot who professes worship of nature at the expense of man’s mind is preaching doom for both. The earth has its best chance because of mankind, not in spite of it. Of the two, man’s mind is more valuable and if one has to be saved, it must be the imagination of human beings.
Every advocate of communism, socialism, social justice, and environmental conservation is ignoring the basic rules of our universe and stand in defiance of nature when they profess to preserve earth because they think it’s pretty. They ignore the violence; the very foundations of all life—that they are built on violence and destruction. Only the human being stands in rebellion to this trend by advancing toward an unknown intelligence only it can create—because it is not yet present among all known life forms. It is time to abandon the fools who do not believe that man does not have dominion over all the earth—because they do—and that is the will of nature as a species that is vastly superior to every other life form on earth. Its time to stop feeling guilty about it for the good of everyone, and everything involved.

First of all, once the current hippie generation of gun grabbing statist oriented big government slugs begin to fade away into the sunset, public schools are going to find themselves with a major crisis. They have moved way too far to the political left to properly serve American children and their families. Schools in the very near future will be forced into major overhauls of their thinking. Current public school overreaction to everything related to personal firearms will prove destructive to their future survival. Most of the young people schools are picking on now will become very pro gun in their 20s and 30s, and they will become voters and will lash back against these overly liberal tax funded institutions. The reason is that during all the progressive experimentation that has went on around their lives, the feminist issues that removed their mothers from the home leaving kids to raise themselves, the global peace progressive tripe taught to them in their schools, and their television shows laced with deep left-leaning political arguments–video games have been their only refuge—and guns are a big part of that world. Most young people love guns because of movies and video games and will grow up to be different adults than the current hippie driven relics from the American 60s and that will spell doom for public schools.
The situation is so out of control in current government schools that in New Jersey recently, Glen Meadow Middle School has added its own bizarre entry in the ever-lengthening list of public school policies not aligned with American society according to an article shown below by Legal Insurrection. According to Ethan Chaplin, he was suspended for twirling a pencil in math class. He says that a student, who had been allegedly bullying him, yelled to the teacher that “He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie.” The school responded by suspending Chaplin and the Vernon Schools Superintendent Charles Maranzano insisted that it is the only appropriate response.
The kid’s father, Michael Chaplin, was so outraged that he took the step of recording a conversation between himself, the school’s principal and a guidance counselor — and then posted it on YouTube. It is not clear from the article if this was done with consent but the absence of any allegation of unlawful recording suggests that it was a legal or consensual taping.
The mention of the word “gun” was evidently enough of a “red flag” to launch an investigation onto Ethan. He was put through 5 hours of psychiatric testing, where his mental state was evaluated to determine if he was a threat to other students.
When I was in school I carried around chrome cap gun in my pocket every day, and I often shot it off in the cafeteria during lunch period. The explosion was so loud that it reverberated all through the school. Usually, it would only provoke some startled glances for a few moments, and then everyone would go back to what they were doing. Today, if a kid did what I used to do, the school would be put in lockdown as the FBI would be called in to investigate. Today if a kid would be caught doing the things I did as a kid; they would be locked away in a straight jacket and labeled a menace to society.
Every single day in grade school during recess I played war with my friends on the playground. We made gun shapes with our fingers and would shoot at each other. Every day! It was part of growing up as a boy. We were doing far worse than what Ethan Chaplin did. Public schools have used every tragedy to advance their crusade against the Second Amendment, but eventually it will be to their own detriment. Today in 2014 there are sympathetic ears to listen to their panic driven neurosis. But what has happened is that the gun culture is more alive today than ever before. It is likely that most children know more about guns and ammunition because of video games like Call of Duty, and Gears of War than I did because the games they play tell them all they need to know—and that is a good thing. The closest I could ever get to automatic weapons as a kid was seeing them in movies and my own imagination. Kids toady can fire them in a virtual environment—and they do so for countless hours—more hours than they spend in schools. Progressivism has taken away their parents so video games have raised the children of an entire generation. Most video games have some element of violence to them. But what it always comes down to is kids are playing the same games I did when I was young. But instead of pretending to shoot with their fingers, they do it on video games. The role and human necessity is the same—testing prowess against others, facing down an enemy, and finding ways to win against impossible odds. Most young males have these types of thoughts—they are testosterone driven natural reactions to the role of being a man.
Public schools ran by former hippie generation statists have gambled with human civilization and lost. They assumed that they could socially engineer out of human desire a need to play with guns and test courage and bravery against other people. The results of that experimentation are a huge failure. More than ever, young people are playing games of prowess against each other either online, or in massive gaming tournaments like Warhammer, X-Wing Minatures, or Magic the Gathering. This government school in New Jersey is just the latest in a long list of public schools caught in their failed support of progressive ideology, and social engineering to manifest into the exact opposite reaction. When young people like Ethan Chaplin become voters—how does anybody think he’s going to vote? Is he going to support the statist school that suspended him for no reason at all? Of course not.
Public schools would have served American society far better if they embraced the Second Amendment instead of fighting against it. They should actually teach gun responsibility in schools, because guns will be a part of the lives of American children either directly or indirectly. But the government schools picked ideology over logic and it will be to their own doom. They took a risk and decided to use tax payer money to radically transform society, and all they have achieved is out-of-touch panicky failure.
Young boys in a capitalist society, which is what America is supposed to be, will always seek to improve themselves in competition with other boys. They will pretend to shoot each other in combat, they will play sports against each other, and they will concoct games of every type to develop their skills against an opponent. Some of the best games I have seen today are the community of X-Wing players that is emerging on the tabletop gaming market. The goal is to blow up each other in combat, but always before and after the games the players like and respect each other—because deep down inside everyone knows that the end game is to get better, and that can only happen when the competition is good. The same tendency is seen in business. Competition is good. Not everyone can be the best, but it is fun to play the lottery ticket of life and try to be the best. And it is even better to respect those who do become the best because competition drove that excellence out of the individual.
Public schools have chosen to align themselves with global equality—which is a long desired tenant of socialism. And they have doomed themselves. 10 years from now, the sympathy that parents have toward these panicky school reactions will only increase. There will be more fathers like Michael Chaplin who will stick up for their children. The answer to the Chaplin family is to homeschool their son, instead of waiting for the school to accept the young man back into the collective student body only to be brainwashed by more progressive tripe. It is the school that’s wrong, not the child. It is the schools that are on the wrong side of American teaching, not that kids that make gun shapes with their hands. It is the schools that are instructing the wrong version of history and have been caught doing it. And the failure is their responsibility completely. The inevitable doom is on their shoulders only—and the pain they will experience is a result of their lost gamble.
Do not feel sorry for the public schools when they cry for mercy in the years to come. They did it to themselves.

The Way of the Fighter: American rebellion against rigidity, command structure and orthodox behavior
Please watch at least this first video for context and background on Claire Lee Chennault:
This isn’t the first time I have revealed a personal passion that I have for the American Volunteer Group who fought in China under Claire Lee Chennault. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. What the A.V.G. did in just a few months in China against the vastly superior Japanese is the epitome of American ingenuity and exhibits the true benefits of capitalism. There is a reason that the A.V.G was so dramatically successful against the Japanese airforce and made the allied Royal Air Force seem like stumbling fools in comparison. The A.V.G were soldiers of fortune who were unorthodox and despised authority. They were not only in China for the right and ability to fight an enemy against all odds, but they were there to get rich. The Chinese government attacked by the Japanese from the East and the communists coming out of the North paid American pilots flying outdated hot rod P-40’s $500 per kill—unofficially—making some of the best A.V.G. aces quite wealthy. But that wasn’t all, it was the mechanics and ground crew which kept the planes flying using innovation that only America had shown an ability to perform that eventually tipped the scales of war toward the A.V.G. There are very important lessons that were on display over China during the early days of World War II that were every bit as real as the John Wayne classic—and favorite film of mine, The Flying Tigers. It was in this film that I first learned about Claire Chennault. But as heroic as the Flying Tigers were portrayed by Wayne in that film, the reality was actually much more spectacular. One of my most treasured books is the rare one written in 1949 by Chennault himself called Way of the Fighter which went into great detail about the A.V.G. and how eventually General Stilwell would screw everything up in Asia—after World War II.
Chennault as leader of the A.V.G. produced a group of fighting men who were charismatically over-the-top with valor, but were deadly accurate as fighting men. Once America officially entered the war, Stilwell was in charge and the A.V.G. was dissolved into official military control, and their kill ratio declined rapidly. Chennault was so critical of Stilwell, and the American government that the book Way of the Fighter was removed from print quickly and to this day is very rare. To get a copy, it costs anywhere from $150 to $300 dollars for a beat-up copy. The book is a treasure of American spirit and is a key to the kind of talent and drive which makes The United States so unique.
The Flying Tigers, according to the Way of the Fighter was predicted by military experts to not last three weeks in combat against the Japanese. Instead over a 7 month period over Burma, China, Thailand, and French Indo-China the A.V.G. destroyed 299 Japanese planes with another 153 most likely destroyed but unaccounted for. All this with just 12 P-40’s lost in combat and 61 on the ground from Japanese strafing missions. Only four A.V.G. pilots were killed in air combat; six killed by antiaircraft fire; three by enemy bombs on the ground; and three were taken prisoner. Ten more died as a result of flying accidents. The Flying Tigers were so hated by the Japanese because of the tremendous kill ratio against them that they promised on their radio broadcasts to shoot A.V.G. prisoners as bandits on sight. But the three captured pilots were treated with respect indicating the enemy’s genuine admiration for Chennault’s organization.
There were two keys to this success, the first of which was capitalism. The pilots were the best there was and wanted to make a lot of money shooting down Japanese planes. The money attracted the best pilots that were available during the prewar times leading up to World War II. The other of course is Claire Lee Chennault himself. He would eventually become a military general but during his A.V.G. days he was simply a hired strategist for the Chinese who desperately needed a creative, “western” mind to protect them from the invading Japanese. Chennault was extremely unorthodox. In some respects he was very strict; in others he was very lenient. He knew when to apply pressure and when not to, which is a distinctly American trait that military leaders all around the world scoffed at—including The United States. But it was because of Chennault’s manner that the A.V.G. was so incredibly good.
Chennault would train his soldier of fortune pilots relentlessly saying, “You will face Japanese pilots superbly trained in mechanical flying. They have been drilled for hundreds of hours in flying precise formations and rehearsing set tactics for each situation they may encounter. Japanese pilots fly by the book, and these are the books they use.” Chennault would then dump the books into the laps of his star pilots. “Study them, and you will always be one jump ahead of the enemy.” Chennault would stand still for effect, peer at the pilots ruthlessly then say, “They (Japanese) have plenty of guts but lack initiative and judgment. They go into battle with a set tactical plan and follow it no matter what happens. Bombers will hold their formations until they are all shot down. Fighters always try the same tricks over and over again. God help the American pilot who tries to fight them according to their plans. The object of our tactics is to break up their formations and make them fight according to our style. Once the Japanese are forced to deviate from their plan, they are in trouble. Their rigid air discipline can be used as a powerful weapon against them.”
Chennault would present charts, graphs, maps, and hours upon hours of practice flying personally mentoring each of his pilots drilling them, building them up as individuals—treating each of them as though they were the star quarterback on a football team, and they performed for him spectacularly. Once he had their trust, and their ears he would say, “You must use the strong points of your equipment against the weak points of the enemy. Each type of plane has its own strength and weakness. The pilot who can turn his advantages against the enemy’s weakness will win every time. You can count on a higher top speed, faster dive, and superior firepower. The Jap fighters have a faster rate of climb, higher ceiling, and better maneuverability. They can turn on a dime and climb almost straight up. If they can get you into a turning combat, they are deadly.” Chennault would then pull his finger across his throat to drive home the point as the heat of the Toungoo airfield poured in from a tent flap letting in the summer sun, sweat dripping off the fighters as they listened attentively.
“Use your speed and diving power to make a pass, shoot and break away. You have the edge in that kind of combat. All your advantages are brought to bear on the Japanese deficiencies. Close your range, fire, and dive away. Never stay within range of the Jap’s defensive firepower any longer than you need to deliver an accurate burst. You need to sharpen your shooting eye. Nobody ever gets too good at gunnery. The more Jap’s you get with your first burst, the fewer there are to jump you later. Accurate fire saves ammunition. Your plane carries a limited number of bullets. There is nothing worse than finding yourself in a fight with empty guns.”
The Flying Tigers would become part of the official American military under the United States Army Air Forces’ 23rd Fighter Group. The effectiveness of the A.V.G. pilots declined quickly under the regimented military life insisted upon by Stilwell. However some ace pilots like Tex Hill would stay on and help train other American pilots in the ways of the famous A.V.G. and Chennault’s battle tactics would migrate from aircraft carrier to carrier throughout the entire Pacific allowing America to gradually beat back the Japanese and eventually dominate them. The victories in the Pacific theater were not a result of General Stilwell or MacArthur, but rather because of Clair Chennault. Without Chennault, America would not have won in the Pacific and Japan would have taken China months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. This would have given them access to numerous natural resources that would have allowed them to dominate the entire continent of Asia. World War II really came down to two generals who broke official rules of orthodox command, Patton in Europe took Trier with only two divisions sarcastically replying to his furious commanders who instructed him otherwise that he would “give it back,” if they didn’t approve of his methods, and of course Chennault’s epic battles with Stilwell—Stilwell obviously jealous of Chennault denied him of supplies and manpower secretly hoping it would end the winning reputation of the former A.V.G. commander. The victories in the Pacific and in Europe were won by soldiers of fortune, and unorthodox command. It was not just won by bravery, or equipment, but by people who knew how to use the strengths of their equipment against the enemy and were not afraid to upset the command structure of their superiors. That is the “American” way!
On the other hand the allies, particularly the R.A.F. out of England with their Spitfires had a much more difficult time. For instance, in the battle over Rangoon, the R.A.F had losses comparable to the Japanese while the American A.V.G. had a 15 to 1 kill ratio fighting right alongside them all. This is because the A.V.G. were unorthodox freedom fighters combating for money and adventure while the R.A.F and Japanese pilots were regimented military fighters who would follow orders to a fault, and could be counted on to die if needed for the greater good.
After America defeated the Japanese, Stilwell, foolishly advised command that there was no other need for America to guard China from any hostile threat in that region even though Claire Chennault was practically jumping up and down begging America to stop the push by communists into China from Russia. Chennault warned that there would be more war, likely in Korea and Vietnam if America did not continue to defend China. Truman, and American military command ignored Chennault with the same institutionalized swagger that they professed that the Flying Tigers would be destroyed within three weeks. They blew off Chennault’s warnings, blacklisted his book, Way of the Fighter, and assumed that they had won the Pacific war based on their West Point educations. They were wrong. Within a few years America was back at war with Korea, then a few years after that with Vietnam. But at that point communism had already affected the collective based cultures of Asia and had even gone to work in America under the counter-culture movement starting at colleges within The United States.
Few people would believe that the slow slide into such an abyss of global communism and socialism began when America won World War II and stopped listening to General Claire Lee Chennault. But it did. Too many Americans at the time did not see communism as a threat but did see Japan as a threat because of their obvious hostilities toward the outside world. However, as Chennault published his book, Way of the Fighter, Chinese communists were taking over the country violently torturing the kind of people the A.V.G. fought so valiantly to defend, leaving them alone and defenseless. Communist China then moved against Tibet and America did nothing about it. Just that fast the entire land mass of Asia was under communist control and quickly seeping into all of Europe through the less offensive term of socialism. Communists did to the world what Chennault did to the Japanese pilots, they exposed the rigidity of American politics and picked off their enemies one by one over a long period of time—just as Chennault had warned.
The lessons should be clear, freedom, capitalism and innovation beats rigidity, command structure, and orthodox behavior. And it isn’t group consensus that wins wars and defends nations, but ultimately solitary minds, valor, and raw courage that is more unpredictable then structured. And thus, that is the Way of the Fighter, and the way that nations prosper.
I love technology as much as anybody, but when I want to relax, technology is often not part of the experience. I will always love a real book in my hands because I don’t like looking at a lit up screen to read, and I will always prefer physical activity to computer play. But with the NSA concern in reading every email, watching all online traffic, and all the privacy concerns involved, I love Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures more and more—because of the low tech, yet complex game play. I play the game as much as I can because it has all the multifaceted strategy of a video game, the intellectual muscle flexing of chess, and the unlimited creative potential of miniature model building incorporated into a non-technical exercise that is a true vacation from the many prying eyes of our modern world. The video shown below is from a couple recent games that I played displaying the creative potential behind the game. The models are very detailed, and provide creative stimulation for boundless imaginations, and the terrain such as asteroids and star field backgrounds surprisingly pull the mind into the game world effectively.
The depth of the game is something to truly behold, but for me it is the lack of technical involvement that is most attractive. When playing, the technical outside world is turned off. However, perhaps even better the creative potential of the game is limitless, and the company Fantasy Flight Games has really overachieved as an organization. Prior to 2013, they already had a championship caliber game that would live on for many years as a crowd favorite. But they didn’t stop there. Instead, they worked on making 2014 one of the most exciting in the short life of the game with a whole range of new additions. Every game addition mentioned below is something that I am very eager to experience and will hit the marketplace within a few months of this writing. These will make the video shown above that much more exciting, and complex, and will fill many evenings with great joy. Fantasy Flight Games is one of the most innovative and forward thinking companies in existence. I wish they were not applying these great skills to just entertainment, but in the field of aerospace, manufacturing science, and research and development. But in the world of gaming, they are simply the best there is at this point in time. Here are just a few of their releases over the next couple of months that I am most excited about.
The GR-75 Medium Transport
First unveiled as a prototype at Gen Con Indy 2013, the iconic GR-75 Rebel transport is most famous for its critical role in the Rebellion’s evacuation from Hoth. However, the GR-75’s role in the Rebellion’s efforts extended far beyond that pivotal conflict.
GR-75 transports were used mainly to transport supplies, equipment, or troops, but some were modified to serve as fuel tankers for long-range starfighter missions. Relatively inexpensive, the GR-75‘s hulls couldn’t be penetrated by Imperial sensors, and the Rebel Alliance often enhanced this feature by outfitting the starship with sensor jammers. Indeed, the Rebel Alliance made such common use of the GR-75 that it was often called the Rebel medium transport.
Rebel Aces features one A-wing and one B-wing miniature, both of which come with alternate paint schemes. You’ll also find four highly skilled unique, new pilots; thirteen upgrade cards; maneuver dials; and all the tokens necessary to launch these starfighters into the thickest action of your space battles against the evil Galactic Empire. It also includes a new mission, which thrusts some of the Rebellion’s finest pilots into a desperate rescue effort that highlights the B-wing’s durability and the A-wing’s agility.
Heroic New Paint Schemes
Fly with the best! The alternate paint schemes on the starfighter miniatures from the Rebel Aces Expansion Pack allow you to battle for the Rebellion’s cause while representing the heroic efforts of the pilots who first flew its A-wings and B-wings as experimental prototypes.
Only ace pilots were granted the right to fly prototypes for the Rebel fleet. Piloting the agile A-wing required tremendous focus and lightning fast reflexes. Still, by helping the Rebel Alliance develop and improve upon its original designs, their efforts benefitted everyone dedicated to the cause of galactic freedom, and the A-wing ultimately proved its worth during the Battle of Endor by helping to cripple Star Destroyers.
To honor those prototype pilots who first flew the ship, the A-wing in Rebel Aces features the paint scheme depicted on the Prototype Pilot ship card, with a bold blue central stripe and red and yellow highlights.
Close Air Support
Manufactured by Incom Corporation, the Z-95 Headhunter was the primary inspiration for the later design of the T-65 X-wing. Even though the X-wing eventually outclassed it in nearly every respect, the Z-95 was cheap, durable, and reliable enough that it continued to see use throughout the Galactic Civil War, most commonly in close air support roles.
Entering X-Wing as the Rebel starship with the lowest squad point value, the Z-95 Headhunter is perfectly suited to play the role within the game that it played within the Star Wars galaxy. It’s a durable and reliable starfighter that comes with the ability to carry and fire missiles, making it capable of playing a strong support role.
The CR90 Corvette
While the Tantive IV is easily the most iconic CR90 corvette in the Star Wars galaxy, it is by no means the only one of import. Manufactured by the Corellian Engineering Corporation, the CR90 was a swift, multipurpose ship that saw widespread use among governments and private parties.
The CR90 corvette’s modular design made it easy for users to reconfigure it to best suit the purpose they wanted it to serve, and the CR90 was often employed as a cargo transport, troop carrier, passenger vessel, or light escort. Additionally, the CR90 could be outfitted with enough weaponry to make it a formidable gunship; it could equip as many as eight turbolasers, six laser cannons, and four ion cannons.
The Tantive IV Expansion Pack presents a similarly adaptable starship for use in your games of X-Wing. Between its two ship cards, for fore and aft sections, the CR90 can equip up to ten upgrades of four different types.
Every time X-Wing Miniature players think they have this game figured out, Fantasy Flight comes up with new ships with entirely new variables making the game ever evolving unlike most table top games. As players provide Fantasy Flight Games with feedback on their website chat forum, the game designers have proven adapt to filling voids discovered in strategy. For instance, Imperial players were dominating tournament play with Tie swarm tactics which allowed cheap Tie Fighters to overwhelm the more expensive point values of the Rebel players by sheer numbers. Fantasy Flight saw this trend and is now releasing the Headhunter which will be nearly the same point value giving Rebel players the option of putting swarms of Headhunters against Imperial players. The CR90 and CR-75 will be the first of a series of big ships to hit the game which will bring entirely new strategies to the game not even yet explored. In this way the strategies that players used last year in 2013 will be useless in 2014 with all these new variables being introduced. In this way, X-Wing Miniatures is very dynamic and is likely the reason the game is exploding in popularity. I know I spend considerable amounts of time reading cards and planning strategy even when I’m not playing the game. It fills my mind with enjoyment for the sheer mechanism of focused thought.
It is always a pleasure to experience a company that is doing everything right. With Fantasy Flight the only real issue they have is in delivery of new product line. They are currently late on the CR90 and CR-75, but for what they provide as far as product, they are worth the wait. There are few things that bring me so much pure joy as Fantasy Flight Games X-Wing Miniatures. For those new to the game I have provided samples of tournament play from Team Covenant who is a committed group of table top gamers who wish to advance the hobby to for the uninitiated. The game is different from gambling games like Poker and Black Jack because it is essentially a war simulation. The added ability to actually pilot vessels makes X-Wing Miniatures even fun to watch because the entire game play area is up for grabs. Every conceivable mathematical surface of a play area is an option. The game is not limited to spaces, or a game board—but to the unlimited options of a game player and how they chose to utilize that battlefield. That freedom is both within the game and from external electronic control, surveillance, and other limitations that make X-Wing one of my favorite current past times—a trend that is not likely to subside any time soon.
I have to give Matt Clark credit, he beat Glenn Beck to a story based on the release of my article, “The Pronoun “I”: Communist infiltration of America by Perestroika Deception.” Beck covered the Perestroika Deception on The Blaze during the week of March 22nd a few weeks after several of my readers sent it to contacts at Beck’s network. But without knowing that, Clark was booking me on his show the night before The Blaze released their research into the long time conspiracy theory turned true. When I wrote my article it was my hope that media outlets like Beck’s and Clark’s would cover the story and get the message out to Americans quickly so that they could understand what was happening on the world stage between Russia and Ukraine. Matt Clark had me on his radio program today to talk about the Perestroika Deception during his 1-3 PM show on WAAM Ann Arbor, Michigan and the impact to the world that deception has had. You can see the hour-long interview at the two videos below.
Also during this week was the start of March Madness, the gigantic NCAA basketball tournament in The United States. I watched several games, particularly the University of Cincinnati against Harvard. UC was a (5) seed playing the underdog Harvard who was a (12), so the game shouldn’t have even been close. Cincinnati should have been able to destroy Harvard, but once the game began it was obvious after the first two minutes that Harvard would win the game—and I declared so much to many people—which is what ended up happening. Cincinnati made a close game of it for a little while, but never led, and was never able to stop the momentum of Harvard. Cincinnati was known for its great defense, and Harvard countered by shooting 3-pointers from behind the arch crushing the Bearcat zone, and taking control of the game. Anyone who is involved in either a military maneuver or a sporting exercise understands that momentum is of utmost importance during strategic engagements, and the way to gain momentum is to keep an opponent from knowing what’s coming. This is why coaches cover their mouths when they call out plays to their teams, and why secrecy is very important.
Most people understand sports, they understand why deception is needed to achieve victory, and they understand the nature of a late game rally to attempt to capture momentum. Human beings design their games after their very lives, so on a perceptual level, it is understood why such strategic implementations are important. Yet for years many thought that the Perestroika Deception from Russian was a conspiracy theory, and that the former U.S.S.R really wanted to be friends with America. American politicians foolishly dismantled the main offensive weapon of the Cold War—NASA and turned their research into memos about leftist global warming concerns and decommissioned the Space Shuttle forcing American astronauts to hitch a ride to space with the Russians—their former enemies. The move by the Obama administration seemed stylish at the time but little did anybody know that the seeds of deception planted by the KGB in America through the education system, through commitment to the United Nations, and a massive debt racked up playing caretaker to the world was all part of the plan—and that Obama was a creation of that deception during the 60s when all his primary mentors were communist advocates—where his college friends were communist revolutionaries and his wife would even work closely with the known American terrorist Bernadine Dorn. All those elements were results of seeds planted by the Russian KGB in the late 1950s, and by 1989 Russia essentially changed their defense against The United States from a zone to man-to-man. The defense called by the KGB was the Perestroika Deception and it allowed them to climb out from under American capitalism and capture the momentum of their strategic engagement with the West.
I had a little fun with Matt at beating Beck to the story, but in all fairness, conspiracy theorists have known about the Perestroika Deception for a long time and have been labeled as “tin hat loons.” I remember a UC basketball game against Duke in the great Alaskan Shootout where UC was down by one point with only seconds to play. Duke was the number one team in America and had something like 5 McDonald’s All Americans sitting on the bench, let alone playing the game. UC obviously had to hit a quick basket but they had to deceive Duke to get an open shot. Bob Huggins positioned Kenyon Martin the future NBA player at half court to draw the attention of Duke players who would try to foul the big man once he cut to the basket. The Duke players anticipated that it would be Martin who would take the shot. Instead Melvin Levett was shadowing the sideline opposite court as far away from Martin as possible. When a long pass was thrown across the court football style to Martin—Kenyon then tossed off the ball to a cutting Levett who was wide open for a dunk that Duke never saw coming. UC had beaten the titans of college basketball, Duke and the headlines littered every newspaper in the country. The only way the play worked was with deception, misdirection, and strategic implementation. People understand these things when it relates to sports, but it is inconvenient to apply the same perceptual knowledge to the world of global politics. So they often don’t see the signs of such strategies, such as what Russia had done with the Perestroika Deception.
The reason that Vladimir Putin is not afraid of Barack Obama is because he knows that as a child of the 60s, Obama was built from the ground up by the KGB infiltration of communism into the American education system. As I told Matt during our interview one of the reasons all these things are so clear to me now is because I was an extreme rebel during my school days and never accepted any instruction that would cause my mind to acknowledge such deceptive strategies. Obama, who is only a few years older than I am—did. He was raised by flower children hippies and old people who loved collectivism. His strongest father figures were all communist revolutionaries and those were direct creations of the KGB at the time. Putin knows exactly what Obama will do and when he will do it, because it was Putin’s KGB which shaped the mind of Obama—so there is nothing to fear from America when it is led by such an easily controlled mind.
I knew Obama picked Harvard to win over Cincinnati, and during the whole game Cincinnati attempted to win by being conventional—by putting the ball in the hands of their best player. Unlike the game against Duke, where it was deception that won the game, UC tried to play against Harvard straight-up. Harvard defended against those best players, and they won the game. Putin is playing the same game against Obama, and he knows the American president is not intellectually capable to deal with Russia as it has been disguised under the Perestroika Deception. Now Americans are angry that they cannot compete with Russia, we are intertwined with the world in ways that prevent capitalism domination of the global marketplace, leaving us all stuck together like free spirits glued to a first grade student’s art class project. Putin is making a move against the world knowing that military action cannot happen, because America is too far in debt to China, and China as a communist country was formed by Russia. Who controls the strings to China—it isn’t the United States? You can read more about Glenn Beck’s coverage of the Perestroika Deception at the following link:
After a reader tipped me off to the Perestroika Deception and I did some extensive research on my own, I wrote “The Pronoun “I”: Communist infiltration of America by Perestroika Deception” to take it out of the realm of conspiracy into a serious discussion of military, and social strategy. I count on people like Clark and Beck to then take the next leap forward with their massive platforms on talk radio. Beck often has a 15 million listener footprint, so it is good when he talks about the Perestroika Deception to the millions of uninitiated masses who wouldn’t otherwise know about it. Those people who read here and sent it to The Blaze have yourselves to thank. You did a very good thing. Beck is often way out ahead of everybody, but this time it was Matt Clark who beat him to the story of the century, and put WAAM radio in the town of Ann Arbor, Michigan square in the sites of Vladimir Putin—which is quite an honor. Because the thing that Putin doesn’t understand and the reason his KGB had to use the Perestroika Deception in the first place is due to people like Matt, Beck and my readers here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom who are clearly superior to Russia, Europe, China and everywhere else that there is collective salvation driving their social and economic trends. It’s not Obama who Putin ultimately has to fight, it is us—and he cannot beat us in a straight fight. He and his Russian counterparts must rely on deception—and once that deception is known, their plan is ruined. On Saturday March 22, 2014 at 1-3 PM Matt Clark played his part in ruining that strategy against Putin, and the world is better off because of it. YouTube is more powerful than the Voice of America was back in the Cold War days, and our interview will be on it for as long as YouTube exists in cyberspace—where people from all over the world can see it. As the Ukrainians stockpile their rocks and sticks to fight the Russian military, Americans are sharpening their knives, loading their guns and also preparing for the inevitable failure of our own puppet politicians controlled by Putin and his Perestroika Deception.
And people like me are chomping at the bit for a chance to do more than just talk on the radio……………………………. I would love to see Putin try to ride his horse down my street with his shirt off displaying his massive stature of 5’ 2” or whatever trying to look bold and regal. He wouldn’t last long—which is why he must use the Perestroika Deception against America.

As a continuation on yesterday’s article about the divorce of America from Europe it is time that we had a heart to heart realization as confirmed by the Dutch speed skating coach from the Sochi Olympics. Jillert Anema said he wasn’t surprised the Americans were doing so poorly in speed skating in Sochi because The United States doesn’t support the sport the way it should be supported. He thinks we don’t support speed skating because we’re too busy watching stupid American football and that we are wasting a lot of athletic talent on a sport that is meant to kill each other. Anema confirms what I said previously, that the rest of the world does not understand American football because they do not understand the nature of capitalism. American football is a game of capitalism as European soccer and rugby are tribal games of domination and socialism. The premier reason that the rest of the world cannot compete with The United States in American football to the extent that they cannot even put a team on the field, is because they cannot grasp the concept of capitalism for which to train and play the game. Americans do think they are right, because they are, and they are better than the European, because they are………….because in America they are free and unconquered and a touchdown is symbolic of industrial success and achievement which prompts cheers from a ruckus crowd.
When I was a kid I played soccer. Later in life I realized I would have enjoyed football much better. At the time everyone told me that soccer was the game of the future and that football was on the way out. That was early in 1980. What I didn’t know at the time was that there was a desire by Europe to lead the world toward global socialism through The United Nations and that they desired to advocate a game that the entire world could play together which represented the economic and political structure of their design. They desired at the time to turn The United States away from American style football and onto European style football known as soccer.
I was so aggressive as a fullback in soccer that my teammates nicknamed me the “animal” because I often head-butted offensive players intentionally drawing yellow cards to prevent the other teams offense from getting set-up down the field. I learned very early that the best way to have a great defense in soccer was to pull our full backs up far away from our defended goal preventing the other team’s forwards from getting too close, because the other team’s offense was not allowed to begin a run at the goal by being behind the other team’s defense. This kept their offense from getting too close to our goalie. If our offense kept the ball on the enemy’s side of the field I could pull up our defense to leave a tremendous gulf between our line and the goal which the offense couldn’t exploit because of the rules. This is how soccer is a socialist game because forwards were regulated to staying in front of a defense. If they did get behind me they’d be called off-sides, so when a well placed ball was punched down the field toward the offensive player, and they would receive it a few steps in front of me, a well placed head-butt would plant them into the ground and make them think twice about doing it again.
By the time I got to high school I was so disenfranchised with the education system that I didn’t want to engage in any battle that the school would benefit from. I hated the coaches and most of the members of the team, so I stayed away even though it was a game I was naturally inclined to. Once I got away from my school days I found I enjoyed the game increasingly over the years and found it to be unique to America in many ways that are positive. In football the receiver can get behind the defensive backs if they are faster. The only off-sides there is goes against the defense. They cannot jump across the line until the offense led by the quarterback starts their play. This is the essence of the difference between soccer and football. In soccer off-sides favors the defense, in American football it favors the offense. In America the offense metaphorically speaking is of capitalism, industry, banking, invention, the defense is regulation, government, and political resistance. The intention is to beat those elements to score a goal. That is why Americans don’t typically cheer in football until yards are gained or a score is obtained. In soccer they cheer collectively during the entire match. In football it is typically when an achievement is obtained—this is a big difference.
I have been a Tampa Bay Buccaneer fan most of my adult life. I fly flags on game day and fire cannons from my porch when they score. I love the hard hits, I love the theater, and I love how it is specifically American. The rest of the world cannot play American Football. Rugby is a pretty close adaption and the players are tough in that they don’t use padding, but the concept of the game is still a version of Europe’s addiction to collectivism instead of an individual quarterback standing behind a battle line and delivering the ball down the field to ultimately score. In American football the quarterback is the CEO of an offense. He is a celebrated hero from Atlas Shrugged in every circumstance and his job is to rally his team to victory as an “individual.” In rugby the closest thing they have is a “fly-half position.” So there is no coordinated effort to get the ball down the field to score a goal—but like soccer it is a kind of chaos where the ball bounces back and forth between offense and defense with no plan or formation on how to execute a task. Soccer and rugby are European games that reflect their cultures, and they cannot grasp the ideal of a Football playbook where offensive and defensive schemes drive the ball down the field toward the promised land of scoring.
Europe cannot put a team on the field that can even remotely compete with an American team because Europe and the rest of the world cannot grasp capitalism. The differences are pure and simple. Who gives a rat’s ass about speed skating around a frozen lake when you can take off the head of an enemy player on the field of capitalism and are given points for ramming the ball down the throat of a defense to gain victory? In soccer and rugby a score just so happens almost by random chance, just like their stupid economic system—which is why the score is often 1 to 0 or 2 to 3 after over an hour of game play. In football you get 6 points plus a field goal attempt for scoring a touchdown. In soccer you get one stupid point. In America when a business hits it big, people often get rich. They get more than a silly point; they get SIX points just for getting across 100 yards of defense. Football is their game, it is the hopes and dreams of every American played out on the battlefield of capitalism. Soccer and rugby are games of socialism, collectivism, and way too many rules reflective of their societies. The difference between Europe and America is clearly evident in their games.
Needless to say soccer did not become a hit in America. I don’t even know where the nearest professional team is, so my teachers lied to me when they said that soccer would suppress American football in the future. They hoped that it would because deep down inside they recognized the differences which are clearly ideological. I would love to see London play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, or socialist bitches from Paris. I’d like to see France find 11 men in the entire country who could meet the Tampa Bay Bucs in Raymond James Stadium—I bet they couldn’t do it. Let the speed skaters of the Dutch even think about putting a football team on the field against even American high school players. They would be destroyed. There wouldn’t even be remote competition, because the people from those places are so intellectually ruined because of their economic commitment to socialism that they can’t even comprehend the role of a quarterback, let alone train a player to perform the task. This is also why they fail economically, because they do not understand what makes industry work, what makes money, and how products are even created. They randomly sometimes get lucky and score a point, but often you have to wait an entire game to see a score—or in the case of Europe, an entire decade.
To Jillert Anema, let’s see you even come close to assembling a team that could play American football. America can at least put speed skaters in an arena with the Dutch but there is a reason nobody in the world can compete with American in football…………………….it’s because they can’t. Just like the battle between socialism and capitalism. It is that simple.
How about challenging the rest of the world to a little wager? Here is the contact page to the United Nations. Send this article to them and let’s see if they have an answer to it. Let’s see if they can pull all of the best players from around the world from soccer, rugby, speed skating—whatever, and see if they can even play against one American professional football team. I bet they can’t.
Go ahead, send them a note:
Better yet contact every country that is in membership at The United Nations from that same link. Send them a request as well and let’s see if all of them put together could build a football team……………American style.
(Shhhhhhh, they can’t.) I offer the videos on this article as testimony. Prove me wrong……………anybody in the entire world.
There are attempts in Europe to be like America. There are teams trying to learn the role of a “quarterback” and play the American game. They can all be found at this link. Building a proper team should start with them. But I bet all of them together would fall short of an American professional team. Because the basic concept of the game eludes Europeans.
I feel sorry for people who feel this way. The reviewer simply can’t relate. They have no concept of having the kind of passion for something where sleep, rest and comfort are secondary concerns. They don’t feel those kinds of things, so they think good characters are the type of people who strive to have faults, where they work simply to eat, drink, rest, and have sex. People like that are like monkeys at a zoo looking at human visitors across a gulf of intelligence, beyond the barriers of a cage, and can’t understand why zoo visitors have drinks, and strollers, and small humans in their arms with sunglasses shielding their eyes from the sun. They are primitives, sad and left behind lost forever to faulty thinking and stupidity.
That was a comment I made to an article published on Atlas Shrugged is a Ridiculous Book posted in the Galt’s Gulch site where I have quite a few friends. I read the review linked below and thought that the author Robert Nielsen did a good job citing his opinions, that he did thoroughly read the book and made an effort to have pointed comments. I thought the author was a generally curious person of above average intelligence. However, I also thought that the author might be a radical left winged oriented socialist (Democrat) who was a staunch Keynesian and after looking into the guy a bit, that is exactly what he was. He was a European born and raised amidst the socialism of Europe and simply had no mental mechanisms that could relate to the novel Atlas Shrugged and believed that through democratic consensus that just because a majority of the population on earth does not think like the characters in Atlas Shrugged, that the book is ridiculous and should not have an audience. Nielsen had a number of opinionated passages in his article, but the one below struck me as being the most revealing.
“All of the heroes have this absurd element to them. They don’t stop to eat or rest a single time in the book and it is casually thrown in that they haven’t slept for two or three days as though that would have no effect on them. They have no hobbies or interested (sic) outside work. Even when they are bleeding they don’t feel any pain. In other words they are soulless robots, machines good for working and nothing else. Atlas Shrugged bears a strong resemblance to Fascist propaganda in its treatment of heroes. There is a strong emphasis on the cult of personality, of worshipping men of action in contrast to the masses who are too stupid and cowardly to achieve greatness. Democracy destroys accountability whereas dictatorship is the only system where anyone is responsible. All of the best firms in the book are named after their owner and collapse without them.”
Nielsen says a lot here and represents a large portion of the world who have grown up for generations under kings, princes, fascist rulers, and tyrannical dictators who to them represent the “right” on a political spectrum and democratic socialists, communists, labor unions, and religious collectivists on the other representing the “left.” Yet for me personally, I don’t even consider any of the categories on that scale relevant and long ago designated Europe and its history to be corrosive to the human experience. My ideal of a good time is not sitting in a “pub” with my mates watching a socialist soccer game and thinking that James Joyce was an intellectual giant as the benchmark of good literature. The guy could write complicated metaphors—but to what end—to be haunted by dreams of a fragmented past as in Finnegan’s Wake or to visit a brothel in Ulysses. Nielsen is from Dublin, and so was Joyce and because of my experience with those works, I feel I have a pretty good feel for life in Ireland and what it represents—and none of those things are concepts that are attractive to me.
I find it utterly disgusting that so many Americans have been bred through the education system to believe that the cities of Europe are exotic destinations of culture and sophistication. To me the entire land mass from the shores of France to the end of Russia protruding out into the Bering Strait is a corrupt embodiment and continuation of The Dark Ages. The people from those lands have been conquered and beaten so many ways by so many tyrants that the only way out of the cycle was “democracy” through majority rule. And if the majority are idiots, than so be it. Visiting a BW3’s on a Friday night disgusts me as much as it would if I were in a Dublin Pub with a bunch of socialists banging mugs of beer together in communion around a soccer match—so my feelings are not specific to Europe. And before I say any more, one of my son-in-laws is from England, just outside of London on the eastern side. My other daughter dated a guy from the boarder of Scotland. I have family members from Europe, and I deal with people almost every day in every time zone from London to New Zealand, so I have a very good understanding about the lifestyle of Europe which leaves me shaking my head when Americans seek to mimic that cold landmass with a history of oppression extending from here to the dawn of man shown in the Caves of Lascaux. America was founded by people seeking freedom from Europe and they were willing to die to leave that place. In a lot of ways the pilgrims were the original Gaultchers from Atlas Shrugged they were looking to be free of the religious and political persecution of Europe, which still exists to this very day in Keynesian economics. The thought process moved from churches into the economy but the mentality is very much the same.
Once America was founded and Europe saw that they could visit without being killed by natives, they settled the New England area and brought their stupid European socialism with them in the form of “progressivism,” and started voting for Democrats while encourage America to give up football and making “soccer” the national game…………………………..NO. In many ways Europe is still stuck under the veil of tyranny that they have been confined with since there was an Ice Age and it is utterly disgusting. Atlas Shrugged is one of the first great American novels produced under a relatively new country with a new way of thinking. Now of course the jealous European trained in the liberal schools of Ireland, England and France will scoff at the characters of Atlas Shrugged because they are clearly outside of the European experience.
In reference to many of the successful Americans that I know, it is true that if they do not come to work, or leave a company after they have led it, the company does collapse. Making money is their hobby. I remember a lunch meeting that I had in downtown Cincinnati with some very influential financiers and patent attorneys where the bill was $11,000. These guys did this every day of the week. They made their money under an American capitalist system and could not have done what they were doing in Europe because people like Robert Nielson would think that they had equal rights to that money just because their mothers gave birth to them in Dublin. The people I had lunch with had a hobby that was “making money” which is why they had it. The wealth they produced carried over into every aspect of society from the nice waitress who tended to them daily to the people who imported the food required to feed them. If those types of people didn’t show up for work one day, or decided to go on a vacation, their businesses fell apart because “the people” working for them lost focus and drifted without proper leadership. That is not fascism that is leadership. Fascism is where such a human trait is taken advantage of.
America has created its own definitions and fascism is not even an option. A business leader of an industry is not a fascist, they are a job creator. People are free to leave that job if they discover they don’t like the direction of the company. But to allow a fascist to rule over the entire nation of America—that simply isn’t going to happen. Europeans can’t wrap their mind around that ideal; it doesn’t fit with their history and their foundations of education. To them the political “right” is fascists like Mussolini and Hitler and the “left” are people like Lenin, Stalin, and Marx. America rejected all those idiots because they are collectivists, and in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged she is introducing an entirely new way of looking at the old problems so that Americans can understand why their capitalist system is so superior to European socialism. Those in love with “democracy” (majority rule, even if a majority are fools) is to commit a political and economic structure around collectivism. In America where individualism is the foundation concept, collectivism is a curse. It is a waste of time to achieve group consensus because not everyone is capable of making proper decisions. The reason for this has been explored by Robert Pirsig in the book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, another revolutionary work of philosophy done specifically in America. Slowly the old philosophers of Europe, people like Nietzsche, Marx, and Descartes are being replaced by Rand, Pirsig, and Adam Smith.
The characters of Atlas Shrugged are my kind of people. They represent my daily life and I do feel sorry for those who can’t relate. It must be terrible to wake up each morning in such a fog that human faults are the first area of focus. It must be terrible to even consider if “group consensus” is something to measure before taking action. I once went to Disney World with a large group and watched everyone standing in Tomorrow Land for an hour arguing about which thing to do first. Finally, I got sick of it and gathered up a crew who wanted to go with me and I left to explore the park. We had a blast because most people just want to have someone give them direction in life. They don’t want the burden of thinking, they just want to follow—and that’s fine so long as they don’t get in the way. But if they try to hold things up with indecision and personal insecurities, then it is unacceptable to me. The primary question explored in Atlas Shrugged is if the majority should be allowed to hold up the few, when it is the few who move the world, and the answer is no.
People like me do not reach out to the “democracies” of the world trying to sell Ayn Rand or Atlas Shrugged because I really don’t care if people like Robert Nielson accepts it or rejects it. I just don’t want Nielson in a position through his Keynesian economics to hold me up when I want to do something. If he wants to hang out in a Dublin pub watching soccer matches instead of being productive, that is his decision—but he does not have a right to hinder me. The point of Atlas Shrugged is that when this process happens, people like Nielson do suffer. Europe sucks…………..most everyone is stuck somewhere between fascism and communism. The topless beaches of France and Spain do not give culture to a society—it does not make them enlightened. French wine is not better than California wine and the Caves of Lascaux are representative of the same tribal collectivism as the Navajo of the American Southwest—both represent primitive collectivist cultures mired with a basic premise of tribal sacrifice. The America that took Adam Smith’s lead, and John Locke and was first commented on by Ayn Rand, then Robert Pirsig is one that exists outside of European definitions for things. It is not my task or those of my friends in Galt’s Gulch to “sell” Rand to anybody. Her books have sold for decades quite well on their own—people come to her work in their own time in their own way. The difference between a republic and a democracy is that a republic is supposed to represent different people as a representative as opposed to a democracy with majority rule. America is a republic not a filthy democracy! A group of thugs do not have a right to impose on me their beliefs just because they outnumber me. The stupid will always outnumber the intelligent—so the stupid should not have power over the intelligent. The intelligent should not be hampered by fools, lowlifes, and insecure collectivists. That is what Atlas Shrugged is essentially about and why it offendshttp://youtu.be/bWebZ_OqU_c so many people. I can understand that many people don’t like the book or the movies if they identify with the villains—nobody likes being called names. But for years in every movie and book that has attacked capitalism, they have attacked my values, which is what the artists have done to people like me—so Atlas Shrugged is art that I can relate to. I don’t expect the democratic masses to enjoy it—it wasn’t written for them.
It is sad that people like Robert Nielsen are stuck behind on an island of Keynesian economics, socialism, communism, and soccer matches over beer in 200-year-old pubs that smell like dirty feet and swamp ass stained to their wooden chairs after 50 years of use. Like monkeys stuck on an island display at a zoo designed to contain them they can only look across the void at America and wonder why we have it so good, why we have so much money, so many tools at our disposal. But they never get to the answer of why because they are lacking the intellectual tools to step across the barriers which contain them. If they knew how to swim or were not afraid of the water they could free themselves—but instead they spend their days grooming each other and beating on their chests in memory of their primitive ancestors and call those who have left them behind—cultists driven by “selfishness.” I would love to help those people, but not by coming to Europe to copy off them, to play their stupid soccer matches where the game resembles socialism with their ridiculous off-sides rules—where a forward cannot be behind a defense—give me a break! That makes for a boring game and a boring economy, and Europe has both. Atlas Shrugged, an American story, is about productivity, individualism, innovation, and the corruption of the masses and their need for leadership. John Galt is certainly not the next European fascists. He is beyond that kind of thinking—he is all about total independence where individuals are not compelled into imprisonment by the weakest links of society—because those weak links chose to be stupid, perilous, or otherwise reckless with their lives—then expect others to shield them from reality through collectivism. Atlas Shrugged philosophically is a divorce from Europe, and obviously in such divorces there are hard feelings and one side will always try to make the other look bad. But in the end, Atlas Shrugged is a change in thinking that the spouse left behind resents and in this case it is Europe and all its faulty past. Robert Nielsen might feel the chill of abandonment and call after their former lover with disdain and envy, but the merit is rooted in jealousy. The proclamation that some people, some economies, and some ideals are better than others, and that people who love Atlas Shrugged are willing to go off and do their own thing is a reality that the European and the Americans who love the dank culture of that haze covered land is simply too much to comprehend.
Atlas Shrugged is about a new way of thinking where the roots of productivity are not explored through mystical hocus pocus balancing limited resources against equal distribution to the world. It is about what makes resources in the first place so that new things can come to be which ultimately benefit everyone. The question must first be asked, who is responsible for productivity—is it the democratic masses or the few who possess leadership and ability? My trip to Disney World is confirmation that Atlas Shrugged is the only artistic work to properly identify the answer. At the end of that day, a majority of the people in the argument of what to do were still there. They had simply sat down at a few tables and ate food most of the day stuck in inaction driven by their indecisiveness. Me and my group, we rode Pirates of the Carribean—5 times, road the Thunder Mountain Railroad, did the Swiss Family Robison Tree House, saw a number of shows including the Presidents Showcase, ran all over Tom Sawyer Island, did everything in Fantasy Land, shopped, road Space Mountain—3 times and still had time to do more. The rest of the group had not even left Tomorrow Land except to get a place on Main Street to watch the fireworks. That is what has happened to Europe and every single Keynesian economist and every political socialist. They are still stuck in the politics of Europe and are chained to its dismal fate where America has moved on. The philosophy of that “moving on” is chronicled in Atlas Shrugged and is only growing as more and more of those monkeys on the zoo island learn to swim and discover a big bright world outside of their intellectual confinement.
There is no question that Bill O’Reilly is the best news guy in the business today. However, for my tastes he is way too close to the progressive point of view. He is too cozy with the kind of people who are wrecking our country so I usually watch him the way I would a disconnected parent from another generation who is out of touch with the reality of our times. The reason I do is because he is simply the best that there is—which says everything that needs to be determined. Bill O’Reilly tells the truth without spectacle and fanfare. So it should be quite shocking to many to watch his Talking Points Memo shown below from a few days ago titled, “America in Decline.” I understand the reason he does what he does with the progressive left, he wants to be a good reporter just after the facts, and he feels he will reach more people if he’s fair and balanced. Largely he is right, he is a bestselling author, he has excellent ratings on his top rated news program on Fox and his stage shows around the country routinely sell out. By most people’s definitions Bill O’Reilly is the epitome of American success, so they should listen to what he has to say. If you have not seen this, please do watch it and send it along to a friend. If you have, watch it again, and again and again. It’s all true and then some and every point made must be corrected in American culture within the decade, otherwise, we will not survive. It is that simple.
To those who say that Bill and those who think like he does is just a bunch of angry white guys spewing hate, it’s time to can it. Those are exactly the kind of people who have delivered us to this precipice. The angry white guys are “angry” because they have been kind, and fair, and open—and progressives have done all of the above to our country—and we don’t like it. It is kind of like telling a teenage kid not to have a party while we go on vacation, but while gone, the kid does just that, and when we returned, the house is destroyed. We will be angry! It only adds insult to the injury when the stupid kid tells us not to be angry!
All the things Bill mentioned have been done either intentionally, or through severe corruption and outright stupidity. This is where Bill and I are very different; he is willing to give progressives the benefit of the doubt where I think they have been quite purposeful. Bill being a strict Catholic guy believes in turning the other cheek to those who vilify him—where I do not. I think it is more appropriate to cut off the cheek of the villain and feed it to them for what they’ve done. But we both agree that things cannot continue as they have.
America has been attacked in the same manner that it was during the Pearl Harbor invasion, or the 9/11 World Trade Center terrorist plot. It has been threatened in a similar way as the Cuban Missile Crises was designed to invoke and has been quite literal. The trouble is that most Americans did not define what was happening as an attack because guns and hostilities were not openly declared in the traditional sense—so much of what took America to the place it currently is, went unchallenged.
Now we are part of a country that has had its wealth redistributed to unproductive corners of the world, where fairness has been used as a club to crush enterprise, and stylish feelings have overtaken logic. Probably the biggest sign of the foul play which is amiss is the concluding statements in Bill’s Talking Points, where Lois Lerner testified before Congress yet again and took the Fifth multiple times so not to implicate herself. Lerner being a high-ranking member of the IRS has refused to answer questions as to Washington’s involvement in the IRS scandal that is at this point much, much, larger than Watergate ever was—and nobody in the media, or the Beltway culture have the courage to face down the obvious evil which is taking place. If the IRS will do what they have done to conservative groups, they’ll do it to anyone who stands in their way in the future no matter what the political affiliation. The Lerner corruption at the IRS is testimony in its own way and confirmation that everything so-called radicals like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and many others have been saying is 100% true. It is true until people like Lerner proves otherwise. They can’t have it both ways, use American laws of innocent before proven guilty, and then use the cover of bureaucracy to commit crimes against America. That is nothing short of terrorism and the evidence has proven that Lerner is guilty of it.
But what’s worse than what Lerner has done with the IRS, or the major newspapers who refused to cover the story out of ideological commitment to the kind of change they are trying to impose on the rest of us—is that we’ve let them do it. We’ve been kind, accommodating, and docile allowing them to take the “Fifth” when we know they are hiding something, or lying to us over Benghazi, or the reasoning that energy prices are so high, or taxes are going up, or our health care system has been tampered with, or our jobs are shoved overseas so to “redistribute” them to the gutters of Italy to balance things out with the European Union which has mismanaged itself to the brink of oblivion. We’ve been nice, and we have been taken advantage of.
O’Reilly isn’t inflating the situation in his broadcast on Fox. He’s point for point being excessively factual. The situation is every bit as bad has he stated and if corrections are not made, we are done as a nation—and it will have been on purpose by the enemies of the nation working within our system of government. We have been compromised, and we have a right to be angry about it. Very angry!
The central premise of the progressive argument which has been the undercurrent of communism for all of the 20th Century, emerging in popular culture during the 1960s—is that The United States was built on theft. The argument by progressives like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Noam Chomsky is that America stole their land from the “Native Americans,” that it stole its labor from the African slaves, and that it stole its wealth from Middle Eastern oil. But the real attack is an old one that was most spectacularly on display during the Russian Revolution of 1917 and was conducted much more subtly in The United States—it is a frontal assault against capitalism hoping to destroy the economic engine of prosperity which progressives stood vehemently against. Progressivism shaped the mind of Barack Obama and others like him; it was not them who shaped progressivism. Like termites they believe that their view of the world is the right one and their collective efforts were larger than their individual will—and their aim from day one of their acceptance of progressivism has been to burrow out America into a hollow shell to give back to the world what was stolen from them by capitalism. This is the premise of the new film by Dinesh D’Souza called America, which will be released on July 4th 2014, and promises to do something that has not yet been done before—take on directly the premise of progressivism in a film by high-profile Hollywood talent—most specifically the great Gerald R. Molen. Molen has turned from producing Steven Spielberg films to dedicating his talents by producing films which question the basis behind progressivism the way only Hollywood can—and is one of the first obvious defectors from the movie machine in California.
I’m not going to lie, I knew five years ago after attending a film festival that things needed to change. I had written a few very conservative novels. My Symposium of Justice opened with a serial rapist being bullwhipped to near death for the deliberate staging of a sexual assault by the city police in order to win more support from the public. Not exactly the kind of material a 2004 reading public was ready to deal with. My 2012 novel Tail of the Dragon was about an open civil war against statism done against the backdrop of the great car chase films of the past like Vanishing Point and Smokey and the Bandit. Readers of my blog loved the novel, but the general public wasn’t sure how to feel about it—as it went against everything most people were trained to consider acceptable. After a film I worked on in 2008 and understanding the Hollywood culture up-close and personal I changed direction in my life not to fit the times, but to the times I knew that were coming. Creative people where emerging from their hiding places, people like Glenn Beck, Hollywood defectors like Gerald R. Molen, and Harmon Kaslow. John Aglialoro went into production on the Ayn Rand classic Atlas Shrugged, and of course Dinesh D’Souza started making movies leading up to 2012: Obama’s America. The Batman films by Christopher Nolan were certainly making arguments against progressivism on a huge scale. I saw in Hollywood that progressivism was about to go to court, California had spent itself into oblivion, several American cities were on the edge of bankruptcy, and a radical progressive president had just been elected. Times were changing and as the people in position to usher in those changes, the masses would need more details to explain to them what went wrong and how they could come out of it. This has led to the blog site you are now reading which has over 2 million words worth of my opinions, history, and strategy on how to defeat progressivism. I knew as people like Molen, D’Souza, and Kaslow produced films that would wake up people to the slow cannibalizing of their country by progressivism, that people would need support for their personal journey while coming out of that deep sleep. So I started Overmanwarror’s Wisdom to help them with the difficult journey of waking up from the terrible sleep imposed upon them for years by respected progressives such as Noam Chomsky.
Noam Chomsky had already written several bestselling books over many years which have been pushed like intoxicants into American students through universities thoroughly corrupting the minds of millions for several decades toward progressivism—really to the doom of American capitalism. Chomsky’s essential philosophical premise of Universalism is that “we are choosing to live in a world of comforting illusion,” alluding that the truth of American imperialism is theft of other people’s resources exploited by the evil West. He has sold progressivism with the argument that America should “apply the same ethical principles that we apply to other governments to our own.” In this way, he and others in intelligentsia have paralyzed conservative America into a defensive posture when attack was the needed strategy. That paralysis has lasted for at least four decades, but in 2008, the cracks were forming and a collapse was about to occur. So I determined to help with the transition.
Many wonder why I don’t try to sell my work done here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom. The reason is that I am fighting to preserve America so that the intellect of the buying public is not lost to progressivism forever. It won’t do any good to sell my work to a bunch of mindless drones and I’m not interested in writing for a drone driven public. A Wilshire Blvd talent scout told me about 15 years ago, “Mr. Hoffman, your work is too hard-edged, too political, too violent, and too judgmental. Loosen up a bit, and put some occasional tits in your stories, everybody likes boobies.” This was a female agent from one of the big firms. She was telling me how to sell my work so that it would be marketable to the masses. But that just wasn’t interesting. What good was a condo in Florida, and a Lamborghini, if America failed? So I stopped writing for other people and started writing what I wanted to. And on this blog site, I write what I damn well please at whatever cost. Because the casualties are strategic objectives that will help pave the way for the other media to gain more of an audience—such as D’Souza’s new film, or the Atlas films by Kaslow and Aglialoro.
In the upcoming film by D’Souza, called America, he will take on directly the premise of Noam Chomsky’s arguments, which for the left is like attacking Jesus Christ. Chomsky is forbidden territory that has been beyond refuting, and question. D’Souza will attack the basic foundations of Chomsky and his roots into Immanuel Kant going all the way back to 1785 when the roots of progressivism were forming in Europe. While Immanuel Kant was publishing his works Critique of Pure Reason, (1781) the Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals (1785) the Critique of Practical Reason (1788) and the Critique of Judgment (1790) America was working through the difficulties of becoming the first nation on earth to have a free people driven by capitalism protected by a Constitution rooted in Aristotelian logic. Over the next three centuries countries who followed the lead of America succeeded wonderfully, while those who followed after Kant have suffered under the terrible weight of poverty. This is where Noam Chomsky gets his foundation arguments about progressivism which have done so much damage.
On July 4th, the progressive left, and right will be very outraged by Dinesh D’Souza’s latest film, but the time has come, and I knew it would for a long time. My goal was to have thousands of articles available to viewers of these new movies to combat directly the swarms of progressive propaganda that currently exists. Even with my millions of words produced in defense of free markets and capitalism, there are literally trillions and trillions of words in favor of progressivism. But the big difference is that there are severe holes in their theory and it has always been the progressives who have conducted the theft—like Robin Hood, where they intend openly to steal from the rich and give to the poor. The grim reality that Chomsky refuses to see with his Kantian mindset is that the Middle East sat on their giant oil fields for generations, and did nothing with it. It was capitalism that found a use for it, and made the families of Saudi Arabia wealthy beyond measure. Without the West buying their oil, the wealth that pours into the Middle East would dry up like a torrential downpour in the desert. It would evaporate as quickly as it came. It was America who taught the Japanese how to have one of the world’s most powerful economies, and it is America who buys most of what China produces. It is America who keeps dictators from overrunning the entire world and it is still NASA technology that makes space travel in Russia possible as our astronauts have been forced by the progressive Obama into hitching a ride with a contentious enemy all in the name of “progressive peace.” The American Indian, the so-called “Native American” lived life as nomads for centuries regulating themselves to begging the gods for rain so that crops would grow. The American had science which could help them produce more food under adverse conditions than anyplace on earth. America has produced so much food that going hungry in America is a choice instead of a random option. Within two centuries of the mystic Native American dances around campfires asking the gods to bring food to their tribe, McDonald’s restaurants sprung up every 50 miles across America and NEVER run out of food. It is inconceivable to stop by a McDonald’s and find that they don’t have meat for a hamburger. Noam Chomsky and other progressives think that the Native Americans had the right approach to life and that McDonald’s is a vile construct of capitalism creating a consumer based culture, and the premise of progressivism is to destroy it forever—preserving the earth with a foolish notion of tribal tribute to ancient gods and human reason being troubled by questions it cannot dismiss, but also cannot answer. The American seeks to answer all questions and overcome all obstacles as progressives see such behavior as theft—theft of resources that are finite and not renewable by human ingenuity—in the same way that Indians believed Buffalo kills were spiritual gifts, and rain was given because of a stupid dance.
As the rest of the world learns of these falsehoods they have been taught all their lives, it is my intention to give them a safe place to find the answers with a simple Google search. There are so many articles now on the World Wide Web from me that people all over the world are reading for the first time and having their epiphany moments. Most of the articles are long, and if I charged money for them, people would skip reading in favor of some pornographic material. So I offer them for free so that people will be encouraged to study them. And when people see films like D’Souza’s America, or Aglialoro’s Atlas, or Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, people enlightened will do their Google search and get the details here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom. They’ll learn how they have been scammed by people like Noam Chomsky, and Barack Obama—for a very, very long time. A new rebellion of intellectual thought is emerging, and it is the opposite of the one that Nom Chomsky has been a part of for so many years. The time has come, and not a moment too soon. But the next step will be the hardest. It is one thing to have filmmakers like D’Souza make wonderful films; it is another to understand what to do with that information. For that, I have dedicated myself, and my fortune. I have been on strike so to speak for several years now, and it has been expensive. But well worth it, because the fight is not just for wealth, but the quality of minds needed to have commerce with. Without quality people in America to conduct business with, the quality of the capitalist experience is greatly diminished, which has been the ultimate reason for the progressive attempt to dumb down America through public education. For them, it was always about attacking capitalism—at any cost—even people’s minds.
This may be the most important document that you’ll ever read and contains some of the most potent videos you’ll ever see. Give yourself time with this topic and brace yourself. If you do the research properly and let the evidence take you to the ultimate conclusion eventually the road runs out. Eventually, you will discover what was always hidden right in front of all our faces—a realization that is so troubling, and sinister, that nobody will want to believe it. But it’s true, and dear reader, what I’m about to tell you will bring great harm to your mind and make your sleep difficult. If you care even a little bit about the matters of the world around you, what you will read in the oncoming paragraphs will invite demons into your dreams to haunt you for eternity. The demons however where always there—but you will now be aware of them.
I was there in the final days of the Reagan Presidency and saw the Berlin Wall coming down. I watched the Sean Connery interview where he declared that Gorbachev “is the man of the 20th Century,” while the country was coming apart at the seams promoting his film The Russia House. In that same interview he spoke about his first visit to the country during a movie 21 years earlier called The Red Tent that he stared in where he said, the Soviet Union seemed impregnable. “It was just so potent, with this enormous army, and you felt if they were going to do something they’d do it. And nobody’d do it better.” Then suddenly without warning Gorbachaev seemed to be leaning toward peace and “democracy.” The Soviet Union surprisingly “tapped out” on the mat and begin to embrace western ways letting film crews like Connery’s come to the country to film in Moscow—behind the Iron Curtain. Something about all that never seemed right to me…………………it was mysteriously odd to be so concerned about the Soviet Union for all of my childhood and suddenly they were our friends welcoming the West into their culture and breaking their nation into small republics all seeking United Nations membership.
The more research I have done into education funding, origins of labor unions, and global socialism all these paths have led to a glaring fact that has now touched the lives of virtually every human being on planet earth. The intentions of the communists in the Soviet Union—which can be seen in all their glory in the magnificent novel, We The Living by Ayn Rand have come to fruition with a strategy invoked in a method only collectivists could utilize—people not concerned with the pronoun “I” but with collective salvation that would take over a century to fulfill, global world-wide communism. That was always the stated goal of the Soviet Union and they had President Franklin Roosevelt’s ear reaching an agreement with him on November 15, 1933.
Almost immediately upon taking office, President Roosevelt moved to establish formal diplomatic relations between the United States and the Soviet Union. His reasons for doing so were complex, but the decision was based on several primary factors. Roosevelt hoped that recognition of the Soviet Union would serve U.S. strategic interests by limiting Japanese expansionism into Asia, and he believed that full diplomatic recognition would serve American commercial interests in the Soviet Union, a matter of some concern to an Administration grappling with the effects of the Great Depression. Finally, the United States was the only major power that continued to withhold official diplomatic recognition from the Soviet Union. It also helped that Roosevelt was from the same family as former President Teddy Roosevelt who helped create the Progressive Party in the United States and were trying to do with less violence what the Bolshevik’s had done in Russia overthrowing the Tsarist regime. Being a Democrat, the Soviet Union was not all that different from progressive stated social progress goals, prompting Roosevelt to introduce Social Security and other government safety net programs into American politics so to take the edge off communist pressure during the Red Decade—the 1930s. Communists and Democrats were not that dissimilar. The big difference was that the Soviet Union was participating in major social purges where the United States at that time wouldn’t consider such things.
President Roosevelt decided to approach the Soviets in October 1933 through two personal intermediaries: Henry Morgenthau (then head of the Farm Credit Administration and Acting Secretary of the Treasury) and William C. Bullitt (a former diplomat who, as a Special Assistant to the Secretary of State, was informally serving as one of Roosevelt’s chief foreign policy advisers). The two approached Boris Shvirsky, the Soviet Union’s unofficial representative in Washington, with an unsigned letter from Roosevelt to the Soviet Union’s official head of state, Chairman of the Central Executive Committee, Mikhail Kalinin. The letter intimated that the U.S. Government would be willing to negotiate the terms for recognizing the Soviet Union, and requested that Kalinin dispatch an emissary to Washington. In response, Commissar for Foreign Affairs Litvinov journeyed to Washington in November 1933 in order to begin talks.
Initially, the talks made little headway due to several outstanding issues: the unpaid debt owed by the Soviet Union to the United States, the restriction of religious freedoms and legal rights of U.S. citizens living in the Soviet Union, and Soviet involvement in Communist subversion and propaganda within the United States. Following a series of one-on-one negotiations known as the “Roosevelt-Litvinov Conversations,” however, Litvinov and the President worked out a “gentleman’s agreement” on November 15, 1933, that overcame the major obstacles blocking recognition.
According to the terms of the Roosevelt-Litvinov agreements, the Soviets pledged to participate in future talks to settle their outstanding financial debt to the United States. Four days earlier, after another private meeting with Litvinov, Roosevelt also managed to secure guarantees that the Soviet Government would refrain from interfering in American domestic affairs (i.e. aiding the American Communist Party), and would grant certain religious and legal rights for U.S. citizens living in the Soviet Union. Following the conclusion of these agreements, President Roosevelt appointed William C. Bullitt as the first U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union.
Unfortunately, the cooperative spirit embodied in the Roosevelt-Litvinov agreements proved to be short-lived. Shortly after his arrival in Moscow in December 1933, Bullitt became disillusioned with the Soviets as an agreement on the issue of debt repayment failed to materialize. Moreover, evidence emerged that the Soviet Government had violated its pledge not to interfere in American domestic affairs. Finally, the killing of the Leningrad Communist Party boss, Sergey Kirov, launched the first of the “Great Purges” that led to the death or imprisonment of millions of Soviet citizens as the Stalinist regime liquidated any potential critics of the government. The wide scope and public nature of the purges horrified both American diplomatic personnel stationed in the Soviet Union, and the world at large. The Soviet Union proceeded to pursue an all out infiltration of American politics at virtually every level using KGB agents to set the stage for the counter-culture movements in Europe and The United States by infiltrating the colleges in both areas and slowly breeding communist sympathizers. Again the details are spelled out explicitly in We The Living. In 1979 when America created the Department of Education, the internal goal was to usher in communism to every child in America one mind at a time. Between 1908 and 1975 130 bills were introduced to congress to create The Department of Education. They all failed–every one of them. So why suddenly did the 1979 bill succeed, it is because, it was created by communist infiltrators into the American government by sympathizers to the communist cause on the heels of the Cuban Missile Crises, and Kennedy assassination. These infiltrators worked through the labor unions, specifically the National Education Association. The validity of this claim can be confirmed by Charlotte Iserbyt, who was the Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, and The U.S. Department of Education. She reported directly to Ronald Reagan who used his acting skills to help make America feel good about itself while the Cold War tore at the internal workings of government in full knowledge by him. He fired Iserbyt when she started leaking what she discovered about the communist plot within The Department of Education. Meanwhile Reagan who had sympathized with communists in the past, had been a leading member of United World Federalists, and a charter member of Americans for Democratic Action and tried to win the Cold War with the Soviet Union with lessons he learned from GE when he was a spokesman for them in the 60s. Reagan turned to advertising propaganda, and charm. Reagan outspent Soviet Russia into oblivion forcing the Soviet Union to collapse economically. But ideologically they had already penetrated all their targets fulfilling many of their 45 planks of communism outlined in the book The Naked Communist outlined extensively here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom. Communism had infiltrated the colleges, the public schools, the media, the movie industry, the Democratic Party, large parts of the Republican Party and now that the Soviets were pretending to break up and collapse, new members of the United Nations were being admitted so to gain voting power and fulfill another communist plank, infiltration of the United Nations, which was created ironically by Franklin Roosevelt. This new, less obvious strategy was called The Perestroika Deception.
Anatoliy Mikhaylovich Golitsyn CBE (Russian: Анатолий Михайлович Голицын; born August 25, 1926) was a Soviet KGB defector and author of two books about the long-term deception strategy of the KGB leadership which was intended to be implemented during this period of the early 1990s. He was born in Piryatin, Ukrainian SSR and provided “a wide range of intelligence to the CIA on the operations of most of the ‘Lines’ (departments) at the Helsinki and other residencies, as well as KGB methods of recruiting and running agents.” He is an Honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire(CBE) and, as late as 1984, was an American citizen.
He has been the repeated target of KGB assassination attempts. Current President of Russia, Vladimir Putin was a 16 year officer in the KGB holding a rank of Lieutenant Colonel before retiring in 1991, about the same time as The Perestroika Deception was set to take place and go underground. The movie mentioned regarding Sean Connery, The Russia House was the first film to be allowed into Russia and filmed in Moscow and St. Petersburg. For those not proficient at geography, St. Petersburg is Petrograd in the Ayn Rand novel referred. St. Petersburg was renamed to the current which had been changed in 1914 to Petrograd in 1991. Remember that date. The novel The Russia House was written by John le Carre, otherwise known as David John Moore Cornwell who was a former intelligence officer for MI5 and MI6 in Great Britain. The KGB was well aware of what The Russia House could mean to their plot to begin The Perestroika Deception and implementing an overall strategy by a popular actor from Europe in Sean Connery, a beautiful American actress in Michelle Pfeiffer—playing a Russian woman, and a platform to announce to the world how Russia is a good country who suddenly wanted peace. The project of course was funneled through the SAG union in California from the Communist Party USA advocating the novel on the fast track for film studio production. No studio in America would pass up the opportunity to be the first American film shot behind the Iron Curtain. But what many of them didn’t know was that they were all pawns in The Perestroika Deception.
Anatoliy Mikhaylovich Golitsyn wrote a book called The Perestroika Deception which was published in 1995 and claimed:
- “The [Soviet] strategists are concealing the secret coordination that exists and will continue between Moscow and the ‘nationalist’ leaders of [the] ‘independent’ republics.”
- “The power of the KGB remains as great as ever… Talk of cosmetic changes in the KGB and its supervision is deliberately publicized to support the myth of ‘democratization’ of the Soviet political system.”
- “Scratch these new, instant Soviet ‘democrats,’ ‘anti-Communists,’ and ‘nationalists’ who have sprouted out of nowhere, and underneath will be found secret Party members or KGB agents.”
In his previous book, Perestroika: New Thinking for Our Country and the World, Golitsyn said President Gorbachev stated outright, “Perestroika is closely connected with socialism as a system.” Answering those asking, “Are we giving up socialism?” Gorbachev replied, “Every part of our program of perestroika…is fully based on the principles of more socialism….” Gorbachev has even been as blunt as calling perestroika a “continuation of the October Revolution.”
The “perestroika deception” worked like a charm. American leaders were all too eager to pronounce the end of the Cold War. Then President George H. W. Bush declared, “We live in a time when we are witnessing the end of an idea — the final chapter of the Communist experiment.” President Bush went on to spearhead a guns-to-butter policy resulting from this “peace dividend,” culminating in a massive diversion of military spending to social programs. From 1989-2004, military spending as a percent of GDP dropped from 6.2 percent to a scant 2.9 percent. Over the same period, entitlement spending went from 28 percent of federal outlays to nearly 40 percent.
US military cuts have been so drastic that former Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger has said, “The simple reality today is that we cannot fight two MRC’s [Major Regional Contingencies] more or less simultaneously.”
For more on this, please do read this very good article in American Thinker from way back in 2009.
Now fast forward to this current time of 2014 where within one week America and Great Britain announced major cuts to the military and their world-wide occupation of far away countries, the libertarian push to put up walls to the world and live and let die other nations, and the Russians attacking Ukraine for its involvement in attempting to join the European Union by rebelling against the Russian puppet president of Ukraine. The people desperately want freedom from Russia as one of those false Republics which were supposedly set up to preserve “democracy.” But they’ve had too much taste of freedom, and now want the real thing—and Russia doesn’t like it.
I received a note the other day from George Soros advising me that now was the time to invest in the Ukraine—as he has all along been involved in planting the seeds of discontent in that country, as he has been doing all over the world on behalf of his progressive sponsored groups, directly connected to Socialist International so that the economy of Ukraine will collapse. Up until a few days ago when Ukraine reached out for international financial help, their currency slid 18% just in February of 2014. As all investors know, such devaluations are ripe pickings for quick returns on investments because they are driven by market turbulence. So people like Soros are often found playing two sides against each other to provoke such devaluations. The same thing that has happened to Ukraine is currently underway in The United States. If you will read the letter from Soros below dear reader you will see that George began his involvement in Ukraine in 1990, the same year that The Russia House was released, and one year before Vladimir Putin supposedly retired from the KGB and decided to run for political office eventually making a fool of Barack Obama and the rest of America at every turn as the world does not yet want to admit that they have all been deceived by the “perestroika deception.
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Sustaining Ukraine’s Breakthrough
By George Soros
Following a crescendo of terrifying violence, the Ukrainian uprising has had a surprisingly positive outcome. Contrary to all rational expectations, a group of citizens armed with not much more than sticks and shields made of cardboard boxes and metal garbage-can lids overwhelmed a police force firing live ammunition. There were many casualties, but the citizens prevailed. This was one of those historic moments that leave a lasting imprint on a society’s collective memory.
How could such a thing happen? Werner Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics offers a fitting metaphor. According to Heisenberg, subatomic phenomena can manifest themselves as particles or waves; similarly, human beings may alternate between behaving as individual particles or as components of a larger wave. In other words, the unpredictability of historical events like those in Ukraine has to do with an element of uncertainty in human identity.
People’s identity is made up of individual elements and elements of larger units to which they belong, and peoples’ impact on reality depends on which elements dominate their behavior. When civilians launched a suicidal attack on an armed force in Kyiv on February 20, their sense of representing “the nation” far outweighed their concern with their individual mortality. The result was to swing a deeply divided society from the verge of civil war to an unprecedented sense of unity.
Whether that unity endures will depend on how Europe responds. Ukrainians have demonstrated their allegiance to a European Union that is itself hopelessly divided, with the euro crisis pitting creditor and debtor countries against one another. That is why the EU was hopelessly outmaneuvered by Russia in the negotiations with Ukraine over an Association Agreement.
True to form, the EU under German leadership offered far too little and demanded far too much from Ukraine. Now, after the Ukrainian people’s commitment to closer ties with Europe fueled a successful popular insurrection, the EU, along with the International Monetary Fund, is putting together a multibillion-dollar rescue package to save the country from financial collapse. But that will not be sufficient to sustain the national unity that Ukraine will need in the coming years.
I established the Renaissance Foundation in Ukraine in 1990 – before the country achieved independence. The foundation did not participate in the recent uprising, but it did serve as a defender of those targeted by official repression. The foundation is now ready to support Ukrainians’ strongly felt desire to establish resilient democratic institutions (above all, an independent and professional judiciary). But Ukraine will need outside assistance that only the EU can provide: management expertise and access to markets.
In the remarkable transformation of Central Europe’s economies in the 1990’s, management expertise and market access resulted from massive investments by German and other EU-based companies, which integrated local producers into their global value chains. Ukraine, with its high-quality human capital and diversified economy, is a potentially attractive investment destination. But realizing this potential requires improving the business climate across the economy as a whole and within individual sectors – particularly by addressing the endemic corruption and weak rule of law that are deterring foreign and domestic investors alike.
In addition to encouraging foreign direct investment, the EU could provide support to train local companies’ managers and help them develop their business strategies, with service providers remunerated by equity stakes or profit-sharing. An effective way to roll out such support to a large number of companies would be to combine it with credit lines provided by commercial banks. To encourage participation, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) could invest in companies alongside foreign and local investors, as it did in Central Europe.
Ukraine would thus open its domestic market to goods manufactured or assembled by European companies’ wholly- or partly-owned subsidiaries, while the EU would increase market access for Ukrainian companies and help them integrate into global markets.
I hope and trust that Europe under German leadership will rise to the occasion. I have been arguing for several years that Germany should accept the responsibilities and liabilities of its dominant position in Europe. Today, Ukraine needs a modern-day equivalent of the Marshall Plan, by which the United States helped to reconstruct Europe after World War II. Germany ought to play the same role today as the US did then.
I must, however, end with a word of caution. The Marshall Plan did not include the Soviet bloc, thereby reinforcing the Cold War division of Europe. A replay of the Cold War would cause immense damage to both Russia and Europe, and most of all to Ukraine, which is situated between them. Ukraine depends on Russian gas, and it needs access to European markets for its products; it must have good relations with both sides.
Here, too, Germany should take the lead. Chancellor Angela Merkel must reach out to President Vladimir Putin to ensure that Russia is a partner, not an opponent, in the Ukrainian renaissance.

Do you see the source of the trouble here dear reader? Do you see what’s happened? Ukraine is representative of all of us the world over. They are caught between Russia and its dedicated allegiance to worldwide communism declared to President Roosevelt in 1933 when he sought peace with them before war broke out. The European Union is built on socialism. The Soviet Union, the European Union, the Screen Actors Guild Union, the National Education Association Union, the National Auto Workers Union, EVERY UNION is involved in this god damn communist plot, and if you support a labor union you have been helping the “perestroika deception” a KGB strategy to spread communism to every corner of the world and rule as a one world government. Out of all the countries in the world that George Soros could have involved himself with, why did he establish the Renaissance Foundation in Ukraine in 1990? Because Soros knew about the perestroika deception. That’s why he funds the Open Society Foundations. Ukraine does not have a choice between American capitalism, or Ayn Rand’s Objectivism. They are not being offered anything close to an American Constitution—they are offered an alliance between one communist union and one socialist union and freedom isn’t even in the cards. That same fate is intended for us, made more complicated because of the free nature of America, and the amount of money and invention which has been generated on a relatively small land mass, compared to the communist work of a massive Russian nation and the still very communist China. China has kept Hong Kong a capitalist sector so not to disturb the markets that have been generated there, which communist China now enjoys instead of Great Britain, but that is simply a hook in the water to snag up Western investment while these communist forces disguised as progressives seek to destroy the American currency—forcing America into a North American Union which will ultimately be controlled by communists already in place, especially in Mexico, Central America, and South America—specifically Venezuela and Brazil.
The situation is actually far worse than even the most controversial radio talk show host has sputtered about. The “perestroika deception” is more sinister than Glenn Beck or even Alex Jones has suggested. The attack has been more flagrant than anything Ted Nugent has uttered, or Rush Limbaugh has espoused. All those characters have talked around the problem to the results without really getting to the bottom line of what the root cause is for all these things. I have made a good living identifying problems well before anybody knew there was a problem and fixing things that other people have struggled with. When I asked years ago what is wrong with American schools, and I sought an answer, this is where it has taken me. The answer is that communism is alive and well, and still a major threat to the world. America did not win the Cold War. The surrender by Russia was a ruse designed to get America to lay down its defenses, and it worked. Actually, it’s far worse than anybody thought, because America allowed itself to be sung to sleep by the KGB quite on purpose. Once we let down our defenses, they entered our children’s minds through various labor unions and went to work turning them against the hard-working generations of the past—so that in the future, those children would be easy to conquer as adults. Once the generations who built America died off, the new generation of complacent union trained idiots would be easy to dispose of, which was always the plan—from the very beginning of the “perestroika deception.”
People in the west, which is both their strength and weakness, have a firm reliance on the pronoun “I.” The word “I” indicates responsibility and self-worth, and is the primary reason that Americans invent so many things and are so industrious leaving the rest of the world to only copy off us. Collectivist societies in every single fashion lack the ability to generate anything new. It is the pronoun “I” that allows for innovation, technological revolution, and advances in free will, increased human capacity and improved lifestyles. But it is also a weakness, because those functioning under the pronoun “I” cannot understand a group of people who would happily sacrifice their life for the greater good of some stupid ideal—like the spread of communism over the entire planet. They cannot understand living one’s entire life for the good of the collective whole—where once they perish, the work they pursued can be picked up and continued for another generation. The communist because they do not function from the pronoun “I” can happily not see their objectives met within their lifetime. They can wait for 100 years, or 200 years—whatever it takes to get where they want to go—because they lack the value of the word, “I.” Americans because the pronoun “I” is so pronounced have been exposed by the KGB and manipulated by a scam that takes place outside of the lifetimes of the participants. Americans have not been able to see the perestroika deception because the plan takes place over several generations and the career changes of many America media personalities, union officials, politicians, and celebrities. The average influential years of most Americans is about 15 years. Most people functioning from the pronoun “I” spend a number of years climbing the ladders of success, and once they arrive, they have a seat at the table for about 15 years before they retire and move on to a peaceful life enjoying the fruits of their labor. The KGB knew this and exploited it in grand fashion hatching a destruction upon America that would unite the world under communism for all known eternity—at least for the human race—and they did it with the “perestroika deception.”
