Saturday Night Live is Terrible: Their hatred of Trump will be their undoing

Donald Trump has a point, Saturday Night Live is terrible lately because they have taken political satire and turned into activist aggression.  I’ve watched SNL for many years and I generally have liked it even when they don’t agree with me politically.  But since the election of Trump, they seem to have lost their minds.  We always knew they were left-winged radicals at SNL and the producers at NBC were socially liberal—but what they are doing to Donald Trump is attempting to weaponize their airwaves which of course will backfire.  But just look at this terrible production during their opening on January 14th–it was horrendous.  Terrible writing, terrible execution and the satirical attempt would need to be rooted somewhat in reality—but this skit doesn’t even resemble the actual press conference Donald Trump did just a few days prior.

It’s hard to understand the minds of these liberals.  Surely they know that now that they’ve revealed their true political radicalism typical fans of the show—like myself—will watch something else.  For instance, normally my wife and I watch SNL from our bed as we close out a Saturday.  But this week, because the previous shows since the election were so terrible, I recorded it and watched it during breakfast before my wife even got up on Sunday.  After that opening act I turned it off and deleted the rest of the show in favor of spending my time on something else.  I’m sure I wasn’t the only one.  And how can SNL afford to alienate half the country and still hope to produce stars for motion pictures and kings of the comedy world?  They are blowing it with this political theater.

The radical left wingers attempted to make Ronald Regan look stupid in their comedy back in the 80s and they are trying the same thing with Donald Trump, and Alec Baldwin’s mocking of Trump on SNL completely depends on painting the newly elected president as a complete idiot.  But, Trump isn’t stupid—he made a lot of money being smarter than other people and he’s wrote a lot of bestselling books based on his accomplishments—well before he was ever in politics.  Painting Trump as a stupid fool just won’t work with Trump and if the SNL people were really so smart, they’d know that.  But obviously, they don’t, and that will prove to be their doom.

I mean they called Trump’s kids Bevis and Butthead.  What did they think was going to happen?   Don and Eric are nothing like those idiots that used to be on MTV.  That kind of mean-spirted writing is a huge turnoff as entertainment because its not even satire–its just stupid.

Airbus Committing to Skycars: The future is now the reality I’ve been telling you about

It was interesting to hear Tom Enders from Airbus speak about flying cars—his recent article published by Reuters shown below sounds exactly like the things I have been saying for many years—almost word for word. (CLICK HERE TO SEE FOR YOURSELF) And that is exciting.  It brings me great joy to see many of these ideas coming to fruition.  Here is what Tom Enders said:

Airbus Group plans to test a prototype for a self-piloted flying car as a way of avoiding gridlock on city roads by the end of the year, the aerospace group’s chief executive said on Monday.

Airbus last year formed a division called Urban Air Mobility that is exploring concepts such as a vehicle to transport individuals or a helicopter-style vehicle that can carry multiple riders. The aim would be for people to book the vehicle using an app, similar to car-sharing schemes.

“One hundred years ago, urban transport went underground, now we have the technological wherewithal to go above ground,” Airbus CEO Tom Enders told the DLD digital tech conference in Munich, adding he hoped the Airbus could fly a demonstration vehicle for single-person transport by the end of the year.

We are in an experimentation phase, we take this development very seriously,” he said, adding that Airbus recognized such technologies would have to be clean to avoid further polluting congested cities.

He said using the skies could also reduce costs for city infrastructure planners. “With flying, you don’t need to pour billions into concrete bridges and roads,” he said.

Enders said Airbus, as the world’s largest maker of commercial helicopters, wanted to invest to make the most of new technologies such as autonomous driving and artificial intelligence, to usher in what amounts to an era of flying

As I’ve said many times, I write all these articles because you just never know who’s reading them, and I get many hundreds of hits every day even though I am blacklisted as a conservative writer on all the search engines and most of the social networks. It doesn’t matter.  Smart people find me, and they read these articles and they act on what they learn—and that is a wonderful thing.

So it is very exciting to see what was just an idea a few years ago coming to a reality and soon, within just a few years—because Airbus means business—let me tell you that—we’ll have point to point flying cars and they’ll be reliable and easy to use—and that will open up a whole new realm in complex history of personal transportation systems. Just remember where you read it first.  I’m more interested in seeing ideas born—getting paid is secondary.  Because all the money in the world doesn’t matter if our world is stuck in the past so it becomes the task of the creative mind to put the first thought in the mind of people who can actually do something about it.  Which is how things are supposed to work.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra at the Trump Inauguration: Protests from Michael Moore and Mark Ruffalo–why China is cutting money from Hollywood

Here is Mark Ruffalo, Michael Moore, and Meryl Streep protesting outside of Trump Tower during the Donald Trump Inauguration.

It is interesting to see the effect Donald Trump has had on all the shadow aspects of our culture which I have to say—I warned you all about many years ago over many millions and millions of written words.  First is this interesting little article from the Hollywood Reporter seen below where the communist country of China is now squeamish about making the kind of investments into the motion picture industry?  Do you really want to know why so many movies have sucked over the last decade—even longer, and why very good filmmakers have went from good to bad in their choice of projects?  (Tell me a film like Always could be green-lit today even with the power Steven Spielberg possesses—it won’t happen because communist China doesn’t understand those types of topics–they are American ideas)  Just follow the money and you’ll see that Beijing has had a very active interest as a communist country in controlling the message of social discourse in America and their mechanism of choice has been Hollywood.  This is why crazy liberals like Mark Ruffalo have jobs in Hollywood—to spread the communist message in favor of the people who write their checks—and is why the entire industry is so incredibly liberal.  It didn’t used to be, but it has now for quite some time as China has sought to leverage the industry under their financing allowing communism to have a voice behind actors sympathetic to their cause.  It has been disgraceful, but finally things are changing.

But that is just a footnote to the story of the Trump impact on just about all affairs.   As Michael Moore and Mark Ruffalo hold a protest rally outside of Trump Tower on Thursday evening just ahead of the inauguration of Trump—we have to look at what has been revealed since the soon to be president was elected on that now famous election of November 8th 2016. I remember how it was most of last year, and I lost a lot of friends over it.  Most people during the primaries thought Trump was a joke, yet I never did.  From day one I was eager for the Trump run because he promised to expose another little secret in our American culture—that is even more pronounced than the efforts of the Chinese to take over our Hollywood industry—our intelligence community was weaponized politically to achieve the same aims.

At the end of their strategic rope just a week prior to this writing, Chuck Schumer—the cousin of that disgusting actor Amy Schumer—let his last progressive hope loose on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC when he warned that Trump should not pick fights with the intelligence community—because they knew things about all of us that we should fear.  And thus, just a few days later a dossier was produced which had been in circulation for a long time and it was floated through CNN into the liberal blog site Buzzfeed and dumped into the public with great and embarrassing fanfare.  The embarrassing details of a supposed Donald Trump paying prostitutes to piss on a bed to his delight were meant to invoke the historical recollection of Adolf Hitler doing similar things—thus hoping to control the minds of America into throwing Trump into a similar appraisal.  What’s funny about Trump is that the story wasn’t true allowing him to emphatically deny the rumors and attack the sources with vigor which revealed the true level of corruption which had seeped into our politicized intelligence community.

So who can say now that we shouldn’t have all along been concerned about those smart meters put on our houses against our will, or the NSA capturing all of our data to be used in some maniacal practice in the future to keep us all in line like animals in a farmhouse pen?  What about the allegations of false flags that I have made in quite a lot of detail.  Where not many of the stories produced to stop Donald Trump from winning of that nature?  And wasn’t the intelligence community doing so with the full support of the White House?  There dear reader you have your answer—liberal politicians and some conservatives have sought to use the intelligence community as a weapon of politics—even John McCain jumped into this latest story by personally advancing the Trump story in Russia hoping something would stick so he could maintain his progressive grip within the liberal sectors of power just a bit longer.

Trump because of his lack of fear, his personal wealth, his age, his experience has been able to take away every weapon of the liberal left and it has forced all these hidden elements of our culture to come forward and show themselves and that is why the Chinese money is drying up in Hollywood.  It’s also why these actors are so worried and screaming to maintain their relevancy.  But with the Chinese money going away in the acting profession, the actors will feel the brunt of that sooner than they’d like, so all they can do is stand outside of Trump Tower on Thursday like the apes in 2001 Space Odyssey and scream at the works of mankind—the giant obelisk in front of them made by a man of ingenuity and determination—and scream at their powerless efforts to change any minds now that the truth has been revealed.

Alex Jones and many others chronicled for quite a few years were laughed at for their suggestions that a massive global government was seeking to control us all.  I have provided a lot of evidence going all the way back to the Darryl Parks Saturday broadcasts on WLW radio in Cincinnati where he and I warned most of America of the impact of the NDAA—which would allow for the militarization of our local police against us with the flip of the switch.  Additionally I told you the nature of the attacks on those same police by communist insurgents injected into communities of color within inner cities and the works of the intelligence community to overthrow our America system—the same way the CIA has been caught doing within many foreign governments for years—playing one side against the other for a net result not seen by anybody but those working the plans—and people like me creative enough to connect the dots based on the presented evidence where the only ones who could see it.

As I predicted from the beginning, Trump’s nomination process would unveil much of this, but even to a greater degree his election into the presidency has literally caused all the cockroaches to emerge from the shadows because the light has been switched on and so many were caught out in the open doing their work under the cover of darkness.  So now that everything is out in the open what will happen to China and its control over the Hollywood left?  Well, I’ll tell you dear reader that entertainment will continue and that money will shift around and new actors will replace the old communist ones.  After all it wasn’t that long ago that most of the leading actors in Hollywood were all conservatives, such as Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone, and so one—and most of the top films each year had these guys involved in some way.  Now we have the age of the globalist metro sexual—and that was by choice in Hollywood inspired by the investments made by the Chinese for a greater strategy rooted in communist migration around the world.  It’s not a secret that just a few years ago some motion picture blockbusters were released in foreign markets before America so to tip the scales in the favor of globalist propaganda.  Now when box office projections are expressed, the domestic gross is considered with the global take—for instance, let’s look at Rogue One, the latest Star Wars story.

Domestic:  $488,335,734    52.8%
Foreign:  $437,100,000    47.2%
Worldwide:  $925,435,734

Domestic Summary

Opening Weekend:  $155,081,681

% of Total Gross:  31.8%
> View All 4 Weekends
Widest Release:  4,157 theaters
In Release:  29 days / 4.1 weeks

Rogue One will hit a billion dollars soon, which is great but notice how the foreign markets are nearly equal to the domestic take?  The industry has now become very reliant on that number so movies are now made with a noticeable global twist to their stories to help boost that figure.  But, here is the little secret—two of the Disney films to break that billion dollar mark in 2016 had noticeable American themes to them, Rogue One being one—Captain America: Civil War being the other.  Half of the money a movie makes in the global market comes from the relatively small county of America.  The rest of the entire world—all of Europe, all of Russia, all of China—with over a billion people hosting that population make up the rest.  The measly 300 or so million people in the United States still generate half of all box office takes that movie studios depend on.

The United States intelligence agencies working on behalf of progressives like Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama—taking the lead of Hollywood’s infestation of Chinese money which trickles through the donation contributions indirectly to control our politics have attempted to tip these scales in favor of globalism and they have tried every trick in the book literally, and were turned away at the last—most vulnerable moment.  And for that we all have a lot to be thankful for—and the cockroaches caught scampering across the floor as the light was turned on are all exposed, and will be standing outside of Trump Tower on Thursday and Friday screaming up at the creations of a truly great man who still remain a mystery to them—like those apes in 2001 Space Odyssey.  And the famous piece of music Thus Spoke Zarathustra from the great Nietzsche classic book of the same name couldn’t have been more appropriate for the beginning of that famous Stanley Kubric classic.  Mark Ruffalo and Michael Moore like those helpless apes will be yelling up at the Trump Tower to a superior apparatus which has eclipsed the greatest weapon the political left had prior to November 8th 2016—a weaponized intelligence community and a Hollywood industry willing and able to romantize that weapon to the detriment of a capitalist civilization.  And Facebook functioned as a liaison between the two making most of its money as a collector of personal information for which the intelligence community could use on a personal basis, and as a way to deliver the Hollywood message directly to the public consuming entertainment products—as the originator of “fake news.”  Yet with the simple election of Donald Trump and his inauguration this week, all those contributors to our modern menace of liberalism have suddenly lost power and are left only to scream up at their betters as the world moves on and away without them.  And that is a truly great thing.  But never forget what they tried to do and how they tried to do it.  I warned you for years and now you can see it for yourself.  So guard against it in the future because cockroaches are always a threat if you leave trash out in the open when the lights are not on it.

And during the inauguration ceremonies of Donald Trump just think of Thus Spoke Zarathustra—because such a moment has finally arrived after centuries of thinking about it.

Right-to-Work Protests in West Chester, Ohio: The bad economics of dealing with people like Ed Conway

I watched with a quite a lot of disdain the West Chester Trustee meeting on January 10th 2017 seen below where union dissidents poured into the chamber to flood the citizen comments portions with outside opinion in an effort to prevent West Chester from becoming the first right-to-work township in Ohio.  As the meeting went on, especially at the 1 hour 19 minute mark, Lee Wong had coordinated the events in the room to invoke union radicalization through a poor understanding of both economics and the trends of democratic thinking–and chaos flourished.  Labor radicals with the worldly understanding of a cockroach paraded themselves to the podium and yelled from the back of the room as Lee defied Mark Welch’s intentions to close the meeting because it was out-of-control.  Each speaker in favor of the union position had already by that time showed exactly why West Chester needs to lead the charge for right-to-work in Ohio—because all of them failed to understand the nature of business creation and were reserved to look around their surroundings and proclaim that West Chester was good—so why change it.  The height of their ignorance was fervently displayed ironically during a zoning change portion of the meeting when Chris Wunnenberg was speaking and the union slugs didn’t even understand that the proposal was a managed zoning change to inspire industrial construction—that such a proposal was not yet on the table.  That of course contributes to the vast ignorance of the many speakers in favor of the unionized status quo—they don’t understand the mind of business and why providing economic freedom not only in the form of taxation, but in reduced complications against the managements of those proposed companies is important to the continued growth of West Chester in a positive direction.

Unions do not create jobs and unions certainly didn’t build West Chester as some idiot screamed from the back of the room.   Business and financial opportunity built West Chester and its neighbor to the north Liberty Township.  Unions are like tar pits, they just sit there and depending on their location, sometimes something good comes across them and gets stuck in their presence only to suffer a gradual and slow death for which they never escape.  Companies do not want to share their management of operations with people like that Ed Conway from the video who claims he’s been in West Chester since 1988.  Unions give people like Ed a seat at the table with the typically smart people who run companies—who go out on a limb with their risks to pour money into a business plan and to execute that plan for the potential of profit which workers then enjoy in the form of wages.  Without that first step, and risk of the business owner and its managers, Ed wouldn’t have a job.

But no president or manager of any business operation wants some person like Ed joining the management of employee business because it greatly limits the amount of productive output that a company or business entity can generate per person.  So for all the talk of how wages are driven up in unions and how that money is poured back into a region and that such a relationship is mutually beneficial for everyone—they don’t understand the mind of a typical businessman.  They see a business owner driving a BMW or a Mercedes and they think they are rich and are entitled to some of their wealth through some communist upbringing they learned in their public schools—and they would be wrong.  Business owners hoping not to get snared in these unionized tar pits locate in places so that they can avoid dealing with people like Ed.

I’m sure Ed Conway is a nice guy, he’s probably great to have a beer with at Buffalo Wings and Rings during a Monday Night Football game.  There is nothing wrong with not being intellectually curious so long as people make it up with being a hard worker.  I certainly don’t expect everyone in the world to read and always push themselves to be smarter from one week to the next for their entire lives—and if they want to use their union wages to feed their faces and become a gradual health risk—that’s their business—but don’t assume that they are capable of being a co-manager of a business operation. Businesses put up with unionized labor only if they can justify the effort in their profit margins.  If the margins can’t justify the pain in the ass in dealing with people like Ed—and there are millions of Ed Conways out there—then they close shop and either retire or they move to someplace friendlier to business actions.  For the proof, just drive through downtown Middletown sometime and you’ll see what people like Ed have done to their economic growth of a once proud town.  Hamilton went through the same destructive process—unionized radicals drove Fisher Body out of the Hamilton/Fairfield area as well as International Paper—and many other places of business because unions and management just don’t go together as coequal parts unless the profit margins are so explosively good that ownership can justify the pain in the ass in dealing with the unions.

In the world we are living in today, price breaks are part of every discussion and companies can no longer jack up their pricing to absorb the loss in market value per employee that unions cost in reduced revenue generating potential.  Let me be more specific.  I was on a conference call just two days ago prior to this writing and I was speaking to a unionized facility in Minnesota.  They are late on the delivery of something I need and an idiot on the other side of the line casually told me to expect delivery sometime in February.  Well, that was the wrong thing to say.  I reminded the person that February wasn’t a date—it’s a month—so I had to ask again what day in that month I would expect their already late delivery.  They just didn’t get what I was saying until it was too late.  They had already lost a future customer because I’ll never deal with such incompetence again once they have established a track record of failure.  And the fault is in their poor understanding of the nature of productive work.  They assumed that the work was some gift from the gods of production for which we are all benefactors and that they’d milk the job out until they saw fit to ship.  But without my efforts, they’d have nothing to do.  That work didn’t come from some god—it came from my efforts and without me, nothing happens.  They are just a tar pit sitting there waiting for someone to get stuck in their mess—and that is how a typical union functions.  They have no connection to productive output in a competitive marketplace.  So they are too expensive to deal with and unreliable in delivery of their contractual obligations—most of the time—because they often have management at a disadvantage and unwilling to engage them.  Similar to Mark Welch being stuck at the end of the meeting not able to get out until Lee Wong—who obviously was coordinating the chaos as a closet Democrat of the same mind as Lakota’s Sharon Mays and former school board president Joan Powell—unions play those mob rule democracy games all the time and managements of companies usually just endure the pain hoping the profit continues.  You can see that on Mark’s face as he had to sit and listen to a bunch of idiots yak because Lee Wong was fanning the flames of discontent to appease his liberal sensibilities.  No business owner wants to be in the situation Mark was in, so they avoid investing in areas where people like Ed’s unions try to co-manage a company—because they surely don’t want some guy like me calling them asking why they are late on delivery.  What is that business owner going to say—“Ed Conway refuses to work on Sunday because the union contract says he has veto power over my management team?”  But when a pricing squeeze is placed on them from outside forces—usually market driven–rather than deal with the union-they just move to some oversea option.

So when it’s wondered why right-to-work is important to West Chester, Ohio, and every state in America just watch this video.  The zoning change that Chris is proposing depends on a friendly business environment to attract actual investment—otherwise he’s working for a developer with nothing to develop.  People who might work at that facility are in limbo until some business decides to move to that location at the corner of 747 and Union Central Blvd—and they won’t do that if they are worried about dealing with intellectual handicapped people like Ed Conway.  They’ll just take their operation to northern Kentucky where they are a right-to-work state.  So if West Chester wants to compete for those businesses, and they do to keep feeding all the great service industry businesses that have invested in West Chester, they have to compete with Michigan, Indiana, and now Kentucky all with right-to-work incentives.  Ohio is late to the party because John Kasich became a liberal like Ed Conway, Joan Powell and Sharon Mays and they want the union dues to keep feeding the bank accounts of the Democratic Party.  But that’s no reason to stick with a tar pit in West Chester when it has a direct impact on whether or not a new business locates in the region.

Let me tell you dear reader what drives up wages—it’s not unions.  If a company has over 20 applicants per job needed—which is where things are now—then wages will be low because a business owner would be insane to cut into their margins just out of the good of their hearts.  Having good margins means they can compete better in the world marketplace when price breaks drive opportunity.  So get that through your heads right now.  If you really want increased wages then American business or even West Chester average wages need three or four jobs competing for the same applicant.  That’s how wages increase and the only way you get there is by making it easy for a company to locate to your region and taking away the fear that some tar pit like Ed Conway will be in the board room negotiating employee pay, holiday schedules and work day limitations.  And that is why West Chester benefits greatly by being the first township in Ohio to become right-to-work.  The unions and their supporters are just tar pits waiting for some fool to get stuck in the Democratic ideology so they can slowly feed off their carcass.  And unfortunately for them, most people running companies these days are aware of that toil, and they aren’t willing to even play the game.  The bottom line is they don’t want to deal with people like Ed Conway because in the world of business, there are many more concerns and they don’t need the extra headache.

Picking Winners and Losers: Why Donald Trump is different than the political class

With Donald Trump’s capitalist antics infusing great optimism and wealth into America’s economy—particularly with the recent Tweet in favor of L.L. Bean—there are great concerns that the new administration is picking winners and losers. And those concerns are ridiculous.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with a president feeling optimistic about companies and if an endorsement by Trump gives a company millions in further revenue, that is a good and healthy thing.  For way too long our economy has been restricted by a lack of enthusiasm from the political class and even being victimized by radical anti-capitalist Democrats looking for a shakedown from those who are successful.  When America was conceived, such stupidity was impossible to calculate, so our Constitution didn’t address the role that a president might play in the role of public relations on a national level.  So pandering politicians have made it a practice to sell access to the Executive Branch from lobbyists—where donors give money to a White House dinner so that they can gain the ability to shake hands with the president and get their picture taken with them—and if they gave enough money—they might even gain their ear.

Politics has been a dirty business from the very beginning because the trend from the days of finding money to pay for an army to stand against Britain in 1776 has been to pay for access to the higher levels of office to leverage success against failure. And the system has been ridiculous—and corrupt the entire time.  The whole thing climaxed with Barack Obama who was the final straw in political theater leading to a capitalist loving Donald Trump to take over politics and change it forever.

Everyone knew from the beginning that Donald Trump was an optimistic person by nature, and he loves making money. Americans who voted for him wanted a cheerleader for capitalism who would infuse his natural optimism into the United States economy.  And that’s what we’ve found in Trump before he was sworn in as President of the United States. He is an optimistic person who has brought Ford, Chrysler, Carrier and many others back in the American dialogue and he isn’t afraid of speaking of his opinion in their favor.  And the impact has carried the Dow Jones to the doorstep of 20,000 and the flow of money back into America in ways that wasn’t even conceivable before.

When I first started this blog site—about 7 years ago now—many smart people I knew thought it appropriate to tell me that the American economy had changed forever and that I needed to get on board with those changes. Their contention was that the American economy was to become a service economy as the manufacturing jobs were gone forever.  This surprised me because I assumed these people were smart—and I would contend that there was no way for America to survive as a service economy.  So we’d argue, and in some cases wouldn’t speak to each other any more in a friendly way—even to this very day.

Meanwhile, I stuck to my manufacturing roots because I always knew that it was in making things that was the backbone of the red white and blue strips on the American Flag, so I never accepted the preaching that has gone on for the last twenty to thirty years advocating a move in America from manufacturing to a service based economy. I raised my kids against what they learned in public school and during my long levy fights in southern Ohio I went against the grain of the progressive trends—that manufacturing was out in America and all the future jobs would be some variation of the “Geek Squad” at Best Buy.

Guess, what—I turned out to be 100% correct, and that is a tremendous advantage to me personally, so I’m more than a little enjoying all this fall-out of Trump’s presidency and the return of manufacturing to America as a part of the expectation of what an economy in the United States should look like. And the great healer to all the sickness we’ve been experiencing as a nation has not been more rules from the political class—or the selling of influence on Capitol Hill by politicians to donors, it’s been the sheer optimism of one man—Donald Trump who for the first time in American politics has not shied away from the concept of making money and offered himself a cheerleader for American capitalism.  And we’re just getting started.

I understand Donald Trump and often offer my own experiences to explain him. Like him, I tend to become very expressive about things I care about—which is why I write so much.  If I didn’t have a means of writing what I think—I would probably do something like he has just to get the energy out.  When I see a movie, I like—I tell the world to go see it.  The same with a restaurant, or some place on earth that impresses me.  I’m not ashamed to have a childlike optimism about things—and Trump shares that trait with me.  When he loves something—he lets everyone know it.  But such traits are not illegal, they are aspects of charisma and leadership.  A person who naturally gains the affections of others exhibit traits that are similar—and optimism is one of them.

Part of Trump’s projected success as a president is that as a natural leader—things will just work better from the Executive Branch. In the past—people with less leadership charisma garnered success in other ways—by selling access to the office and using that access as leverage to control others.  But with Trump—he has something others don’t have themselves—optimism which exhumes from him naturally without effort.  So when he likes something, like L.L. Bean, or Carrier air conditioners because they listened to him—he lets the world know it.  And that will naturally increase enthusiasm for the products of Trump’s liking because half the country likes the president and is likely to purchase products he endorses—just as an athlete might sell shoes or drinks.  Only what makes Trump different is that his enthusiasm isn’t purchased, its sincere and to the Washington D.C. culture, they really don’t like that trend because they can’t compete with it.

The anger of the mainstream at Trump and their proposal that he is picking winners and losers as president is rooted in their lack of ability to compete with Trump. They are people who whore themselves out in exchange for something—just like a common prostitute.  But Trump is doing what he does out of authenticity—his genuine enjoyment of the world around him and that is a big difference.  The office of president was never designed for someone like Donald Trump—it was made for lessor people easily seduced by the temptations of power.  It wasn’t made for people who had more personal wealth than most everyone in Washington D.C. put together who still had the natural optimism toward life that a 7-year-old child has.  And that natural optimism has a place in America because it alone can fix much that has been broken, both by stupidity, and by accident.

It’s not picking winners and losers to support what someone thinks is good—it would be dishonest and a disservice to capitalism to say otherwise. Especially when the advocate isn’t being paid and has no interest in ever being paid for his opinions.  What we have in Donald Trump is literally something we’ve never had in the history of the world, and it is good to see for those who don’t make it a habit to whore themselves out in exchange purely for money—which is what the entire established culture in Washington D.C.—has always been about.  So they don’t know what to do—and for all of us, that is a great position to be in.

Donald Trump Destroys CNN: The art of being “invincible”

Oh how interesting the threads of deceit weave together, from John McCain to CNN—to the supposed Russian hacking—to the US intelligence agencies rushing to cover their asses after Donald Trump put a CNN reporter on the mat in a very alpha male way—the fight between good and evil is shaping up in favor of the good—for a change. The political left would tell you dear reader that there is no defined evil in the world—that everything is perspective—but reality says something different.  Evil worked to push a story about Donald Trump indicating that he had hired prostitutes to piss on a bed in Russia and the incident was on tape—only truth be told—there was no evidence.  Yet CNN ran with the story after U.S. intelligence tipped off by John McCain floated the nonsense against Trump just days before his historic inauguration hoping to bring harm to the newly elected president.  Yet Trump showed what it looks like to stand above the very average and what the future will be like from the Executive Branch.

Josh Ernest of the current White House seemed excessively rattled by Trump’s refusal to take the whole Russian pissing story on the chin—the way that Obama had when that very same person (Trump) accused Obama of not being born in the United States. Well, Trump did force Obama to produce a birth certificate, but there are problems with that document which Sheriff Joe Arpaio pointed out—first of all, it was a digital document supposedly from the 60s which of course was before the invention of such things.  That does create some believability problems for those who aren’t afraid of the evidence.  But let’s not let the facts get in the way of the political left’s calling card toward equality.  Let’s not point out what a bunch of low lifes the current Democratic Party really are—and to what level they will stoop to break the law and lie about it when caught.  There are a lot of reasons to be skeptical of Obama’s life before he was president—but now none of that is important.  Because we have a new kind of president entering the White House.

I listened carefully to many of my old Tea Party friends who worried about the way that Trump dismantled CNN after the piss story and carried it over into his suspicious inclinations about the American intelligence community. They worried about Trump’s unyielding nature and toiled over the concept of absolute power—which feared that Trump might do the same to anyone who stands against his wishes.  But that doesn’t worry me—I understand business guys and I understand and appreciate what a CEO of a company brings to the table as far as leadership.  Many of the founding fathers were like Trump—business guys thrown into the arena of politics and they created a Constitution that was very strong and rooted in correcting over a 1000 years of European mistakes.  They were suspicious of central power because often such things corrupt people’s minds.  But they never knew back then what a billionaire would look like created off Adam Smith’s economic theories and if one of those business guys were to make all the money they’d ever need, and enjoy all the things wealth can bring until he was tired of it—and wanted to run for president to do something good for his country while he still had time on the clock—what would it look like and how would it work?  And would that person be willing to do as George Washington did and turn away from absolute power in the end and give it back to the people?  Many worried about such things in the wake of Trump dismantling CNN.  But I didn’t.

Businesspeople—especially good ones, are far superior to politicians because they produce what politicians seek to loot. But good business is not a collaborative endeavor.  Unlike the current practices of group think tanks the Trump type of CEO that make people like Rex Tillerson do not share authority with other people.  They are used to making decisions as a strong central authority and the rubber hits the road and stops where they say without compromise.  And I understand that because of the Metaphysics of Quality philosophy by Robert Persig—the rules of leadership cannot work in caboose oriented think tanks.  Quality doesn’t work with collective endeavor—it favors the strong individual and is a proper sequel to our American story for which Trump is now the author.  In that world a person who survives much tribulation and arrives as an elder statesman unsympathetic to stupidity and unapologetic to those who set goals too low for themselves stand fearless in front of the world’s media and unloaded on everyone around him who was committing some form of injustice—as defined by the Metaphysics of Quality.

You see dear reader, we are not talking about average people who drift through life in the back of the bus, the back of the class, or plugged into soap operas during the daylight hours. We are talking about exceptional people who stand above average and yearn to push themselves to such heights.   Normally those who seek the presidency of a company or a country hope that the title gives value on a social level based on those philosophies from civilizations over the last millennia.  But what we have now is new, and fearless—because Trump had value before he won the presidency.  A title doesn’t give him value—he already has it, so he can stand in front of nations hoping to extort him—or a media looking to compromise him, and he can stand up to them fearlessly because there isn’t anything they can do to him.  But he could do a lot to them.

Needless to say, I have some experience with this. It is called in the great book on Japanese strategy, The Book of Five Rings the way of making oneself “invincible.”  I learned in grade school, sometime around 7th or 8th grade that I could defend myself against any bully, with a combination of martial arts training and my work with bullwhips.  Once you learn to physically stop anybody who wishes to do harm to you, you no longer have to fear them.  What was even better is that I spent the next twenty years improving my mind.  As I said to a group of people just today—who thought they were very smart strategists who plotted with great zeal actions against me—don’t play chess against me—especially if you only know how to master checkers.  I can beat those people easily because I’m smart.  There is literally no situation on earth that I’m afraid of—I can handle anything—and at some point, in the past—I have.  I don’t mean to brag, but when I’ve taken on big issues where people who think they are important are involved—I don’t get nervous, and I never feel intimidated—about anything—and that’s a gift I’ve given to myself over the years.  It doesn’t matter if its 3 thugs on a street corner or an entire labor union of thousands of leftists radicals—making oneself invincible is a skill that they can’t overcome—and they really don’t know what to do with such a person when they can’t beat them physically, or mentally.  What are they to do in such a circumstance?  They are completely at the mercy of such a person—and that’s a good place to be.

Great CEOs who acquire billions in personal wealth, like Rex Tillerson, Like Carl Icahn, and of course Donald Trump have mastered this type of thinking—being invincible—and when they become president and stand in front of a field of losers who have obtained everything in life through favoritism and whoring themselves shamelessly—people really don’t know what to do about it—and they can crush those people with just a look. And so Trump destroyed CNN with really one press conference.  They’ll have a tough time as a news organization ever recovering because they really don’t know what to do with a person like Trump who understands what it means to be at the front of the train.  Constitutionalists will worry, but history will ease their minds because once someone gets to the level of Donald Trump—they don’t worry about taking power from others—because they have the power of invincibility.  And nobody in American history ever predicted what might happen if such people became president.  But we’re about to find out.  Thankfully.  Because I’m ready.  I know those kind of people and trust them more than any political system invented yet by the minds of mankind.

Trump will dominate for the next eight years, and after that, we’ll get eight years of Mike Pence.   Then we’ll get at age 52 or so the first woman president in Ivanka Trump as she will have by then served 16 years to two presidential administrations.  She’ll win easily, and by then the world will be a very different place—thankfully.  That place will far exceed what traditional Constitutionalist could have ever hoped for under any other circumstances—because the key was never in rules, regulations, and traditions—but in a complete lack of fear from a human being who has mastered the art of invincibility.   That skill does not mean you can act against another and win every time—but it does mean that you can keep yourself from losing.  Offense always involves risk and leaves an attacker vulnerable.  But Trump understands how to play these events and that’s what’s different than any other period in human history.

Lacy Clay’s Despicable Taste in Art: It’s not about race–it’s about personal values

Let me finally solve the mystery of the painting which won a contest in Democratic Representative from Missouri Lacy Clay’s district—which features angry black people inciting violence against police showing them as pigs—literally.  It has no place in the American system of debate—it isn’t representative of the American experience, and it’s just disgraceful.  So it should not be put up in any fashion on Capitol Hill.  It isn’t a work of free speech—it’s the work of hatred.  It is irresponsible for Lacy Clay to encourage the 18-year-old artist who made the painting because such a thing does nothing to heal the problems that we have in America regarding urban culture and suburban culture.  They don’t like each other for obvious reasons—and those reasons aren’t black and white skin colors—it is in that they share completely different values and philosophies—and nothing will be fixed in that realm until lawmakers understand that.

A controversial painting on Capitol Hill depicting a police officer as a pig was becoming the very definition of a political football Tuesday as Democratic and Republican lawmakers repeatedly passed it back and forth in a growing tit-for-tat.

Democratic lawmakers tried – twice – to put the painting back on display after a GOP colleague took it down Friday amid outrage from law enforcement groups.

But every time they did, it was taken down again. Most recently, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., took it down late Tuesday afternoon and brought it to the office of Democratic Rep. Lacy Clay, from whose Missouri district the picture came. Clay once again hung it up, saying he was “an expert at hanging artwork.” 

Rohrabacher called the painting an “insult to all police.”

It’s unclear whether House leadership or some other office will step in to resolve the dispute.

The personal values of the stereotypical urban dweller are deplorable—they are all too happy to live in tight quarters, are disrespectful to others, they dress terribly, speak horribly and don’t set their sights very high doing no justice to those around them by way of creating a competitive driver toward better self-fulfillment.  When a person who does work on dressing nicely, is respectful to others, and sets high goals for themselves encounters people of the opposite no matter what color their skin is or their gender—they won’t like them.  They won’t desire to eat with them.  They won’t want to park their cars in the presence of such loose characters.  And they won’t choose to give their money to people who they really don’t like. They won’t shop in their stores.  The suburbanite won’t seek to relish in the arts of the urban dweller because the two have nothing in common except their eating habits and desires to procreate.

Radical left leaning activists have for too long ignored the obvious problem—it’s not race that divides our nation—it’s the values of the low reaching not being compatible with the values of people who have value.  If an urban dweller is fine playing on broken glass in an alley, they won’t have much in common with the suburban kid who plays in a nice back yard with parental supervision who brings cold drinks to the children and a towel to wipe away the sweat.  America has to make a decision, does it want to be a great country that dreams great things—or do we want to play down to the most animalist ambitions of the human race—to mate, to steal from others, and to get through life doing only what is absolutely required?

There is a reason some of the great wonders of the world architecturally, and artistically feature excesses of ambition—it is because in the human race—to do more than is required is considered a noble endeavor.  When a person tries to do more—there is a quiet rebellion going on against lackluster effort.  It is the human proclamation to say—I am above the average—whether that work is the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Great Wall of China, or a clean car neatly washed for a Saturday night on the town—putting forth the extra effort to be shinier than the other cars.  I can say from experience which I have a great deal of in dealing with both factions—the two groups just don’t go together.  Take a nicely polished Ferrari and park it at a meter three blocks north on Race Street in Cincinnati, Ohio and you will come because from the Aronoff to find it vandalized.  Park that same car in the parking lot of Target in West Chester and it will be as you found it even if left alone for six hours a night.  For all the vandals know, the driver of the Ferrari could be a black man or woman—but they don’t care.  They hate the car because it screams to others that it is above the average of other cars, and the urban dwellers around that car will seek to knock it from its perch—because they don’t want to look up at it.  They want to destroy it and bring it down to their low ambitions.  It is there that the core of racism today percolates.  It’s not about skin color, it’s about values.

Knowing that, the painting hung on Capitol Hill by Lacy Clay has no place in American culture because to display it and accept it is to yield to the values of the very average limits of urban ambition.  It’s not skin color that people are afraid of—it is the behavior of people who would rather destroy those working to be more than average.  Those who do try to be more than average aren’t going to chose to associate with those who think a conversation should be something like, “man, I lik to tap that shi.”  They would more appropriately say, “Would you like to go on a date, see a movie—then let’s see what happens.”  And the assumption of such an experience would be to go to a nice restaurant, see a nice movie, then end up in a clean bed.  What both parties have in common is the desire to procreate, but the differences are phenomenal and not even compatible. Their methods are just too different to have anything in common and a nation cannot build itself around two distinctly different approaches to the same objective.  That artistic painting which means so much to Lacy Clay does not belong in a country where people strive to make a few million dollars during their lifetimes to support their families with a few trips to Disney World sometime along the way before death finds them leaving it all to their family and friends.

The problem as suggested by that Capitol Hill painting against police isn’t whether there is discrimination of law enforcement against the black community, it is the cultural boundary which exists between urban dwellers against suburban occupants.  The law is a mechanism of the suburbanite—the educated, value filled people who want more than just an average life.  But that protector of private property—the cop—does not have much to do in a community of people who don’t care if their neighborhood is damaged with vandalism or drug dealers work every corner along their street.  So all they can do is attempt to uphold the values of the suburbanites who actually pay their salaries—because after all—he who has the gold rules—which is a human trait—not one of race.  People who refuse to participate in an open capitalist society will always have less gold and will be beaten by the very ambitious.  The lazy will always resent the hard-working.  And it will always be the people with gold who pay the cops—and the cops essentially exist to protect the rights and property of everyone.  But for the slug that sleeps on sidewalks, sells drugs, and has children with nine different women without a job to pay for any of them, those people will never like cops—so there is no way to reconcile with them.  America can only have one type of philosophy and if it really wants to be a great nation—it can’t celebrate art like the painting Lacy Clay supports.  Because it’s not about race—it’s all about value and a nation can’t have it both ways and maintain its sanity.  America has to choose.
