I have mixed feelings about Oliver Stone. I don’t think he’s a typical Hollywood leftist. I think he’s too obsessed with conspiracy theories—but he is a fantastic writer. He wrote Conan the Barbarian and Scarface which were fabulous movies, so he’s obviously very intelligent. His use of drugs bothers me a lot, but I actually thought his movie, The Doors, was highly insightful and very good. I’m not a fan of Jim Morrison, but I understood him after that film which walks a fine line between madness and extreme sanity. I thought Natural Born Killers was extremely good and I loved JFK. I think Oliver Stone functions from an unusual place as an artist and I enjoy his work even if I disagree with him on some politics and social policies. So that makes me very interested in his son Sean who seems like a remarkably intelligent young man who has been given the lofty assumption of knowing all the most powerful people in Hollywood and the media—through his dad—but hasn’t had to carve his way through life-like a normal kid. He’s taken that elevated platform and went down the rabbit hole—and I can’t say I disagree with much of what he says below. I don’t base the things I write here on people like Sean Stone. I walk my own path and come to conclusions based on an existence remarkably free of social contamination—because my thinking is very introverted. When Sean Stone who has taken his father’s fame and used that platform to uncover some things, and his conclusions are remarkably similar to my own viewpoints—arrived at independently, there is something important to consider. So listen to these clips where Sean Stone is being interviewed by Alex Jones—and do so with an open mind. I believe he is far more correct than not—and I am certainly not providing that endorsement loosely.
I have said for a long time that science is being held back deliberately. CLICK HERE FOR REVIEW. Just a little investigation will prove that a powerful elite form of shadow government is operating through lobbyists in the United States to adhere our nation to some global scheme. Is it as sinister as Sean Stone proposes—it’s hard to tell, because everything is so shrouded in secrecy, nobody answers questions directly and most of our politicians are puppets? But innately we know something is wrong and our mythologies are constructed around our suspicions. Unfortunately, those mythologies for our human minds become religions and we then limit our perspective to the confines of that branch of interpretation. We stop asking questions because we fear the answer of stepping beyond the boundaries of our religious parameters.
I have talked extensively about Thorium power and other means of free and unlimited energy that does not involve “dirty energy.” I am convinced that much of the global push for socialism is to prevent society from reaching these next levels of scientific thought. We are being held back deliberately from emerging into a Type I civilization because of an old European desire to maintain control of the original ruling families and their bloodlines—which is a ridiculously immature concept at this stage of human development. Cancer could be cured tomorrow and we could have had flying cars for about a decade now. The science has always been there, but politics has prevented those natural gifts of thought to emerge properly—as socialism and religion have been used to keep a lid on their emergence. I am 100% sure of it. Take way the limits of religion and government philosophy using socialism as a means to control the masses, and the United States would lead the world into a Type I society.
The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization‘s level of technological advancement, based on the amount of energy a civilization is able to utilize directed towards communication. The scale has three designated categories called Type I, II, and III. A Type I civilization is able to utilize and store energy available from its neighboring star which reaches their planet, Type II is able to harness the energy of the entire star (the most popular hypothetic concept being the Dyson sphere—a device which would encompass the entire star and transfer its energy to the planet), and Type III civilization are in control of energy on the scale of their entire host galaxy. The scale is hypothetical, and regards energy consumption on a cosmic scale. It was first proposed in 1964 by the Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev. Various extensions of the scale have been proposed since, from a wider range of power levels (types 0, IV and V) to the use of metrics other than pure power.
In 1964, Kardashev defined three levels of civilizations, based on the order of magnitude of power available to them:
“Technological level close to the level presently attained on earth, with energy consumption at ≈4×1019 erg/sec (4 × 1012 watts).” Guillermo A. Lemarchand stated this as “A level near contemporary terrestrial civilization with an energy capability equivalent to the solar insolation on Earth, between 1016 and 1017 watts.”
“A civilization capable of harnessing the energy radiated by its own star”–for example, the stage of successful construction of a Dyson sphere–“with energy consumption at ≈4×1033 erg/sec.” Lemarchand stated this as “A civilization capable of utilizing and channeling the entire radiation output of its star. The energy utilization would then be comparable to the luminosity of our Sun, about 4×1033 erg/sec (4×1026 watts).”
“A civilization in possession of energy on the scale of its own galaxy, with energy consumption at ≈4×1044 erg/sec.” Lemarchand stated this as “A civilization with access to the power comparable to the luminosity of the entire Milky Way galaxy, about 4×1044 erg/sec (4×1037 watts).”
Carl Sagan suggested defining intermediate values (not considered in Kardashev’s original scale) by interpolating and extrapolating the values given above for types I (1016 W), II (1026 W) and III (1036 W), which would produce the formulawhere value K is a civilization’s Kardashev rating and P is the power it uses, in watts. Using this extrapolation, a “Type 0” civilization, not defined by Kardashev, would control about 1 MW of power, and humanity’s civilization type as of 1973 was about 0.7 (apparently using 10 terawatt (TW) as the value for 1970s humanity).
In 2012, total world energy consumption was 553 exajoules (7020553000000000000♠553×1018 J=153,611 TWh), equivalent to an average power consumption of 17.54 TW (or 0.724 on Sagan’s Kardashev scale).
In 2015, a study of galactic mid-infrared emissions came to the conclusion that “Kardashev Type-III civilizations are either very rare or do not exist in the local Universe”. On October 14, 2015, the realization of a strange pattern of light surrounding star KIC 8462852 has raised speculation that a Dyson Sphere (Type II civilization) may have been discovered.
Now, a lot of people don’t think currently in the proper way to comprehend a Type I civilization. They figure that they get 70 to 80 trips around the sun on planet earth, and then they die to reside in some heaven of their chosen religion. But that is a choice relative only to the experience of life on earth and the mythologies of our evolution. There is no rational reason as a human being to die or to be limited to the kinds of scientific limits we currently experience. If the miracles of capitalism were to be unleashed with people like Donald Trump who would not allow special interests and old national desires for ancient bloodlines to guide their decision-making, which is what is happening right now, our global society could move toward a Type I civilization as opposed to following the Vico cycle back toward a collective swarm of nomads running from anarchy.
We are truly on a unique precipice in history. A lot of what Sean Stone is talking about is potential that is available right now. The reason those things are not available to us are for the same reasons that established politicians are still reluctant to accept that Donald Trump or Ted Cruz are leading the Republican field for President of the United States—because the established order wants to keep things the way that they are now—which benefits them. Most of them are like Plato’s cave, also shown above and told by Alex Jones—they believe in certain things, whether it’s their version of an afterlife, or that some superior species of aliens runs the universe and that they must surrender to their whims, or perhaps they believe that their bloodline is their version of eternity and that the way to stay in power is to preserve the organized world around the same power structures that existed when their grandparents were kings. But in reality all those limits are stupid. They are archaic. I wrote about the Plato metaphor a long time before Alex Jones used that allegory described above—but that’s OK, people come to things in their own way. Most of our society has been trained to look at the shadows on the wall. They have no idea what’s really behind them, or even more so, what’s outside the cave.
I’ll tell you dear reader what’s outside the cave—I’ve been there for a long time. It is obvious that there was advanced civilization trading around the world between 15,000 to 8,000 years ago. There was a giant species of intelligent beings that had an entire kingdom in North America, and during this reign, Chinese and many others settled and mixed with them. During their Vico cycle, they ended up with what we know as the “Native Americans” of today. The climax of this culture was the Mesopotamian era—which shared an even older culmination with the Indus Valley. Likely however is that every ten to twenty thousand years prior for as far back as perhaps the dinosaurs, humans drove forward and fell back following the Vico cycle rising and falling completely as a society every 7000 years or so. (CLICK HERE TO REVIEW THE VICO CYCLE. It’s important.) Societies as complex as the one we have today may have easily have come to the exact same spot we find ourselves at right now only to fall back into nomadic tribes of sacrificial idiots barely scraping together enough resources to build a fire.
Likely many hundreds of thousands of years before Mesopotamia there was advanced civilization on Mars and other planets. Just recently it was discovered that there is another planet in our solar system that has such a large elliptical orbit that it rotates around the sun every 15,000 years. There is a lot that we are just discovering about our solar system that obviously ancient cultures knew already. So the evidence is quite compelling and legitimate science has been wrestling with these issues for years. Institutions hungry for government grant money reports only what they can to get that money, and the people who control that money are the same who control the politics, and the lobbyists, and the religions. They control all these things to protect their own version of reality which suits their family lineage and their importance in the grand scheme of things because like all who have come before them, they are following the Vico cycle toward human destruction—yielding to anarchy before rising again as a theocracy—then an aristocracy, then a democracy—only to fall time and time again. Plato knew it so many years ago, the wisdom was ancient in his day, mankind continues to look at the shadows on the cave wall—willingly, because thinking is too hard, and too scary.
Now here we are. What Sean Stone is saying is actually quite true regarding the restricted science and the reasons for it. Everywhere I look I see people ready to go back to what they know—back to the beginning of civilization because they don’t have the courage to step into a Type I. They are like alcoholics who cannot stay off the bottle or fat people who know they have to lose weight but cannot stop eating comfort food whenever they are sad about something. Mankind is addicted to the Vico cycle and that is exactly what socialists are advocating. The good Illuminati that Stone was referring to was a point in the history of the world where thinkers like Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin questioned the reality of the day and tossed it out for the world to consider—which it has struggled with for a few hundred years. Now there are a few people, like Sean Stone, myself, and a few others who have seen what’s outside the cave and are holding flashlights for those staring at the shadows to turn their heads and follow the light out of the cave—so they can finally see reality. But that takes courage, and for most of them—that is too great of a task to master. Will it be a Type I society, or will it be the Vico cycle. Socialists have already picked anarchy and we all know what follows that.

I have been warning everyone about this for years. I have been writing about it for over five years now on this blog site.
I have been warning everyone about this for years. I have been writing about it for over five years now on this blog site.We now have an entire generation that is completely destroyed intellectually. Millennials are a disaster and it’s not all their fault. They have been made to be that way. But as a demographic age group, they are disgusting. They are entitled, dependent, and overally parasitic louses. I was raising kids when all these Millennials were being created. My wife and I sat through all the parent teacher conferences at school. We were told by all our family members that we were doing the wrong things with our kids and instead of listening; we turned even further inward and put up stronger defenses. We raised our kids correctly and they are exceptions of the typical Millennials today. It isn’t easy for them, but they have done well. But as for the rest, and we have many in our family and they are all suffering from poorly constructed minds induced upon them by lazy parents and radical leftist public school teachers, the damage is obvious. Millennials are Bernie Sanders supporters, largely as seen in the Alex Jones videos below.
These Millennials don’t know about the Cold War with Russia and the conflict between communism and capitalism that went on for most of the twentieth century. They don’t really understand that China is a communist country, that Vietnam is, that North Korea is, Russia is run by a former KGB agent—that Italy, Germany, France, Britain, Australia, all of Africa, All of South America, all of Central America—including Mexico, is well imbedded with socialism-and Millennials don’t understand why that’s a bad thing. In America, they were taught in public schools that socialism was good, and that capitalism was bad. Their parents were idiots, too busy making livings with dual income careers that they dropped the children off at day care to be raised by the system. The parents divorced, because society told them they should, they remarried, they had sex in experimental homosexual relationships, they broke up the family units and let the courts decide who the kids would see and when, so we now have an entire generation raised by government from their public schools to the child support courts—and they don’t know any better. Do you remember what I said about the early 80s dear reader, with all the reports of the intention of the Department of Education to move America toward communism? Well, now you see the implications of that tactic. Global communism was always the intention and they have been patient. Once the Generation X American voters ride off into the sunset, the Millennials will only know and understand communism and socialism. The fact that they so openly support Bernie Sanders tells you how far we have come as a nation.
Most young people now are on some kind of government assistance. Government has made it so that Millennials don’t understand what self-sufficiency means so that they would accept socialism as young voters. I have watched so many young people boldly proclaim how “independent” they were by smoking cigarettes, whoring themselves out sexually, covering their bodies in tattoos and piercings and throwing away their entire futures for the glory of those few years between twenty and thirty. Once they hit 31, most of these Millennials actually think that they are ready for a senior citizen home, because they have been raised to only consider youthful enterprise, and nothing deeper into the future. They are as lost as a penny in deep space in another galaxy. There is no hope for their resurrection unless we have a radical change in president of the United States who actually can manage to sell capitalism back to them. Capitalism is not natural to them; it has been trained out of them. There will be no gradual switch backs to reality, they are too far gone.
Even as a young man in the middle of the action, in the 80s when everything appeared to be going well, I would sit in restaurants until the crack of dawn contemplating what I was seeing and I knew we were on an unsustainable course. From the first moments my kids could talk and understand what I said, I told them what was happening. Those who listened to me have done well. Those who thought they knew better than me have not. Family members who refused to listen are now diabolical wrecks and their lives are a constant struggle because they wanted to believe that the system knew what it was doing. There is nothing that is happening now that I didn’t say was coming twenty years ago. I predicted all this and it’s happening right on course. However, I wish I had been wrong.
Millennials have no idea where money comes from and they have no idea that socialism cannot work and still have a society that can allow them to play video games online 24 hours a day. If they accept socialism their online gaming habits will eventually dry up because the entire video game culture was invented under the freedoms of the United States. Other countries do play with them online and they are in socialist countries, like England, France and Spain. Millennials play games with people online from Brazil and Mexico—but what nobody has taught any of those people is that America literally carries the world economically. The moment that America surrenders to socialism, the whole thing collapses for everyone. Currently it is Generation X who still invents video games and the media that promotes them. Millennials won’t care to continue that tradition because once socialism takes all the wealth of Silicon Valley, many of the companies there will shut down and evaporate. Silicon Valley only toys with socialism now within the proximity of San Francisco because most of the employees are millionaires in a very liberal area. Take those millionaires away and Electronic Arts doesn’t make new games every year. Millennials would be lost if Microsoft didn’t put out a new Halo game every so often, or a new Battlefront game. Right now everyone in the world literally rides on the coat tails of the very few who are actually productive in America. Once those people are no longer productive-the minority of which I am a part of, the world plunges into chaos.
Bernie Sanders sounds remarkably like Lenin did during the Bolshevik Revolution of 1919. I would think for the sake of all young people who are currently Millennials, they should be required to read the novel, We the Living. It is their future under Bernie Sanders. For those of us old enough to remember, communism is a disgusting thing to have happen to a free people. As an avid reader, I know history too well. As a young person I read a lot of books, and I still do. As readers here know, one of my favorite books was Way of the Fighter by Clair Chennault. It was about the Flying Tigers defending China from Japan during World War II. Chennault wanted to prevent China from falling to Japan for American strategic reasons. But the American government had other ideas. They wanted Chennault to prevent Japan from taking China—to stop the neighboring country from taking the natural resources there—but even more sinister they wanted communism that was migrating down out of the Soviet Union to take hold and dominate the entire orient. Chennault who lived in the area for years warned America of what was about to happen. He predicted in 1949 that there would be more world wars that would come out of the deliberate mismanagement of the communist invasion of China. Chennault had a plan to stop it after World War II, but the Pentagon refused to listen, because they had other objectives. The Korean War was born out of the communist incursion, and so was Vietnam. The primary reason that America did not have decisive victories in Korea and Vietnam was because communists had already penetrated American culture in Hollywood and the media. Cuba fell to Soviet communism and many of the Central American conflicts during the 80s were to stop communism from settling south of the American border.
Communists had all the intention in the world of taking over the world and only America stood in the way. It has been a steady attack that migrated every twenty years starting in 1919 in Russia. Communism hit the borders of China in the late 30s and once World War II was finished, they made their move once American troops left. Twenty years later they hit Central America and Cuba. Twenty years later, the used socialism to move into Europe and all other South American countries—most ever battle involving Islamic radicalism throughout Africa and the Middle East has communist revolutionaries at the heart of their attacks—including the present time. The damage to our culture is most obvious in the Ben Affleck film Argo, where “imperialist” America was made to be the clear villain in the hostage crises which was at the center of the entire plot. It wasn’t the communists who were the villains; it was the capitalist pigs of America. CLICK HERE TO SEE HOW THIS HAPPENED IN HOLLYWOOD.
Communists found their way into American labor unions and particularly our education institutions with the direct aid the Department of Education which was enacted in 1979 to facilitate the development of socialism and communism in American youth. (CLICK HERE FOR THE PROOF—IT’S QUITE SERIOUS—Ronald Regan knew about the scheme). The result is the Millennials—the first generation raised on a mixed international economy of socialism, communism and managed government crony capitalism, and they don’t know the difference, because they’ve never experienced anything else. Now they have desecrated their individuality with body piercings, tattoos, and poor personal conduct. They have accepted the corrupt hand of government making them not self-sufficient and dependent on others for their daily life—which is by design.
They are compromised collectivists, steered toward the mass aims of society led by communist oriented governments for strategies intended a century ago. And now it’s happening. I understand the anger of Alex Jones. But like I’ve said, I told everyone long ago this was happening. People laughed and snickered and called me names for saying such things. But look who turned out to be one hundred percent correct—hopefully in the future when I say something and tell people how to fix things—they’ll shut up and listen. CLICK THE LINKS ABOVE FOR MORE FACTS TO SUPPORT THE CLAIMS.
There’s a reason to judge. Obviously.

This is really embarrassing. The next thing we will likely learn about Sheriff Jones, my neighbor and local sheriff, who sells himself like a modern John Wayne, is that he’s getting pedicures and facials at a local Wal-Mart nail salon. I really didn’t want to believe this when I first saw it. I was hoping that it was some kind of Hollywood special effect. But no, it’s true—it’s really him and a reasonable number of public employees who are wearing the uniform of the Butler County police. Using the Super Bowl as an excuse to send what they thought was a “hip” public message, Sheriff Jones and his rag-tag team of highly paid ass kissers put out a video dancing to show how metrosexual they were which I thought was astoundingly childish. It’s the kind of thing you’d see from a bunch of stupid kids, not a sophisticated sheriff’s department that is supposed to command the respect of the world because of his national platform. Of course here’s how the local media covered the story. Women naturally think it’s cute, men aren’t sure—it is awkward.
Let me give a little context, tough guys don’t dance. They don’t sit around crying over things, they don’t wallow in emotion, and they don’t dance. Young men do sometimes when they are looking for a female to mate with, but men—real men secure in their testosterone driven utterances—don’t dance. It’s not cute. It’s not hip. It doesn’t earn “cool” points with the younger generation. All it does is compromise authority. It makes no sense.
Of course modern women who embrace feminism love it when men dance, because it shows them that their male counterparts are willing to be more open-minded and expressive with their bodies. People who dance show that they are willing to compromise their individual integrity for collective rituals of expression—and women tend to be naturally included toward more social acceptance than men. Women seem quite at home dancing in a club or at a wedding touching each other in expressive ways as men tend to stand along the wall with their hands in their pockets. Men would rather be shooting guns or playing cards—doing something mildly competitive that they can beat another man at—just for fun. They don’t typically enjoy shaking their bodies in suggestive ways to evoke the approval of collective consciousness.
When Donald Trump danced on Saturday Night Live he did it with a strategy to appeal more to women who currently find him “too scary.” But Donald Trump isn’t a sheriff—he’s a businessman. He did lose points with me on that SNL skit—because I would never do something like that under any kind of pressure. Dancing for men is off-limits. It’s not something any man should ever do. It’s stupid. Now slow dancing with a woman may be acceptable so long as the man doesn’t have to rock their hips in some sexually provocative fashion. Even then, it’s not something I would do. I’ve danced with my wife at our wedding, 25 years ago, one slow dance. I danced with a family member at my brother’s wedding a few decades ago-the same-because I was a member of the wedding party. And that’s it. At both of my daughter’s weddings, we skipped the daddy/daughter dance. I’m sure they’d like it sometimes if I was more physically expressive–but that’s just not appropriate for a man to exhibit. Prior to meeting my wife, I went to a few dance clubs to meet girls, and I was good at it. I was even a fashion model for a period of time and was hired to dance around a swarm of really attractive women on stage to David Lee Roth’s “Just a Gigolo.” Yet the moment I met my wife, I dropped that life in less than a second, because I didn’t like it. To me, the only reason a man would dance would be to land a female into his bed. That is absolutely the only reason. Once you are married, or even have a steady mate, men should never dance in public or private.
Dancing is a form of collectivism and it’s a disgusting enterprise. Surrendering the mind to the beat of the music is not a smart thing to do. Letting the music take control of your mind and body is to surrender your individual sovereignty. Dancing is not a thinking endeavor. When a room full of people surrender thought to the beat of the music it is not a beautiful thing. It’s a thing of disgust. It’s tribal—and in an American capitalist society where thought should be king, dancing is a treacherous social value that leads its participants toward collectivism instead of individual merit.
I’ve heard the saying, real men are not afraid to express themselves. Those are the same idiots who say that men should not be afraid to wear pink, and that it’s OK to cry in public—or private. Let me tell you something dear reader. Real men don’t wear pink, they don’t cry—ever, and they certainly don’t dance. Never. Metrosexuals dance, gay guys dance, and men who have had their testosterone evaporate from their bodies dance to show that they aren’t too old to be like the cool young people at weddings. But real men don’t dance. Dancing is not an activity of thinking. It is an act of collectivism, of yielding to whoever the artist is. A dance floor is a socialist enterprise where sweaty bodies mingle in collective effort toward the goal of assimilation. It’s not cute or funny.
Sometimes people think I’m too hard on public employees such as the local police. Sheriff Jones and his staff obviously didn’t have anything else to do with their time but to coordinate that video—which obviously took some time. I’m sure he’ll say that the whole thing was done on a volunteer basis and everyone was off-duty, at least I’d hope he’d lie to me about that. Because if any of those people were on duty at the time, we have some big problems and the staffing levels need to be adjusted—because we are paying too much for our police department.
There is another element to dancing that involves race. People of color, particularly from the African continent do have a natural inclination to dance. This is not good. I am not impressed with Cam Newton’s “dance moves” on the football field. A quick look economically at Africa indicates that what I have said about dancing is one hundred percent correct. Every country in Africa is suffering under some form of socialism—or collective based social interaction. On their own, the people of Africa are not inventing things, building businesses, or advancing their lives forward away from the dances they use to invoke spiritual aid and mystical persuasion. People from those cultures may dance well—but that is not a skill that advances mankind toward individualism and invention—because invention does not come from collective effort, only individual aptitude. So pandering toward people of race as a “stiff” whitey only makes people like Sheriff Jones look like an idiot—not a man of compromise in showing that he’s not too good to “bust some moves” so to appeal toward members of our community who still think men dancing is cool.
Men, it’s not OK to dance. Women may want you to, and race groups might put peer pressure on you to do so—but it’s not acceptable. Sheriff Jones made a serious mistake toward the institution of manhood in doing what he did. He may be socially confused, or his testosterone levels may be dropping to the point where he’s more estrogen these days than testosterone, but either way, it was very embarrassing. If I were a goon, a punk or a creep looking to sell drugs in Butler County, or to traffic stolen young girls—or even to loot the wealth of homes in the area—Sheriff Jones and his Super Bowl antics would invite me toward indiscretion instead of providing a deterrent. Having a bounty on your head from Mexican drug lords is a manly thing to have. But dancing like a metrosexual from the Butler County Jail—that is just not acceptable.

If you have ever traveled around the world some things become very evident. America is clearly a superior nation, because our individual freedoms have taken the shackles off our product output, and driven a yearning to expand our marketplace. However, there is a downside, without a proper philosophy normally sanctioned by some functioning religion; those same benefits can become a terrible vice. For instance a wealthy and successful man can have a complete meltdown if his neighbor has the latest Mercedes and he doesn’t, or his wife may become bitter as she ages because our tendency toward shiny and new often causes us to reject old and traditional. This neurosis presents itself in American society with a voracity leaving the general mental health of our nation at a detrimental level of dysfunction. I’m sad to say that most people I know are like this in American society.
I am not however. I am an eternal optimist that doesn’t believe in surrender or allowing the mind to become depressed—about anything. I typically carry everyone on my back toward a goal, and for many years I have been fine with that type of approach. The net result is that second-handers ride in my wake and I’m fine with that until they get the funny idea that they are equal to me, and then try to step out in front and take charge. That is where I have to draw the line. Largely, my support of Donald Trump is due to this trait, he like me is a bottomless pit of optimism, and I think it’s more important to have that type of character in the White House than any other aspect of an election. The world unfortunately is controlled by depressed characters—these second-handers, and it really does need to stop. They need to learn their place, and stay in the wake of their clear superiors. Second-handers are not equal to out-front personalities especially those with great optimism. Optimism is one of the greatest traits a nation, a company or a household can possess.
I recently traveled to and from Japan and many of my intellectual thoughts about optimism was confirmed. They have a national approach that very much embodies a can do optimism that is a direct off-shoot of their Shinto Buddhism as a religion. It shows up in their work, their businesses, and their entertainment— in every aspect of their culture. It is amazing how much the Japanese people do given so little resources on the island that they reside on. A lot of that comes from their remarkably positive attitudes. They are very productive and happy to be. They don’t throw away their elderly and most levels of their society have a playfulness about them that joyfully participates in the sorrows of the world—which is clearly a Buddhist attribute. I had read stacks of books on Japanese culture and by default over many years have adopted my own brand of Shinto Buddhism that does not export the responsibility to some third-party spirit residing outside of our four-dimensional space. There is a science to positive thinking that works so long as that is the objective, and that type of optimism is the missing ingredient that America needs most in a capitalist society.
Most people think I’m insane when I insist on certain strategies in business, but as many have witnessed who have hung around to gather up the results, I always know what I’m doing. People who have been second-handers to me long enough know that I always end up coming out on top, and that in my long history, failure has never taken root. That doesn’t mean I haven’t felt the tinge of detrimental failure. It has certainly knocked on my door many times, but I have never yielded to it in any fashion. I have always been able to find the silver lining and turn it to gold eventually—and that is largely due to my overwhelming approach to a positive attitude. Over time I have become used to having nobody around me share this trait, so I am accustomed to functioning completely alone without any input from others. For me personally, it was nice to deal with the Japanese people in general because when it comes to living an honorable existence with a positive flare, they get it. For instance, it was late at night in Kobe, Japan—actually, last week. I didn’t bring any tooth paste with me because honestly, I didn’t want any trouble with the TSA in America—because they are such a bunch of scardy cats about everything—typical unionized slobs who panic over every little raindrop. I was at my hotel and needed some toothpaste to brush my teeth with. So I ran down to Chinatown where nobody spoke much English to get some supplies. I found a little store open that late and I found some tooth paste even though I couldn’t read a word on the box as to what it was. I could decipher enough to figure out that it was toothpaste. Taking it to the counter there was just one other person in the entire store and it looked like he was a Chinese-Japanese guy in his middle sixties. All I was buying was that little tube of toothpaste. I intended to use the whole tube before traveling back to the United States, so it wasn’t much. The man was very pleasant and treated the purchase like it was a block of gold that I had placed on the countertop. When our transaction was completed he gave me a deep bow in thanks and we parted ways.
The cashier in that Chinatown store didn’t have to bow to me; there was nobody else around to judge his behavior. And he didn’t have to be so thankful of a small tube of toothpaste purchased at 11:30 PM on a weeknight when it looked like there wasn’t going to be much else sold to justify him being open that late. Yet he had a marvelous attitude because to him that toothpaste was equal to a bottle of liquor or a pack of meat sold for a celebration. When you live that way day in and day out for your entire life, you tend to outlast whatever troubles your mind, and a productive outcome can eventually be expected.
Donald Trump has that same type of optimism and I think America needs that a lot more than any other aspect of our society—especially after that trip to Japan. I would say that I think having a positive attitude is more important than legal technicalities, or any other learned behavior passed down from mentor to apprentice within the American framework. I value that positive attitude above all other traits. Too often America have limited themselves into reporting what they can’t do which I find disgusting. I want to hear what someone “can do.” I don’t want to hear come out of anybody’s mouth what they “cannot do” especially if they haven’t tried before reporting. Finding excuses not to do something is not appropriate in a free market capitalist society. The sky should be the limit.
I learned to be the way I am by Clare Chennault, the famous Flying Tiger general during World War II against the Japanese ironically. CLICK TO REVIEW. Given old, outdated airplanes, very little in spare parts, and pilots more interested in profit than duty, Chennault with a small band of freedom fighters protected China from the very aggressive and agile Japanese desperate for natural resources to fuel their war. That Flying Tiger story is a great example of American ingenuity and optimism in the face of daunting odds and we have lost that spirit. It makes me sick. I personally do not accept our current status around the world of adopting European neurosis and rejecting traditional American optimism. That is not acceptable.
I hope that in Trump’s wake America wakes up to its potential again. In my personal life, those who know me understand that excuses are not welcome. You either accomplish a task, or you keep trying until you do—there is no can’t. That is a word that I reject from the English dictionary—and I don’t use it. And let me just say this, our nation better get their minds wrapped around the concept of achievement once again. And for those who have been riding in my wake, you better get a grip. If you want to play ball, you better know what you are swinging at. When I’m in charge of things, there is only one way to swing that bat, and you better be aiming for the fences. Because failure is not an option—under any circumstances.

Immigration is not the problem, where people from other countries come to the United States to live out the American dream of freedom from oppressive government so that the fruits of their labor can be used to purchase private property under a capitalist banner. The problem is where elements of incompetent American government that seeks to mirror other oppressive nations desires to overwhelm the traditional American values of hard work, and a yearning for that dream, with mass illegal immigration by bringing the values of those faraway places to domestic courthouses fundamentally changing the nature of United States ethics. That second scenario is the objective of progressives who have been embarking now for decades a military like strategy of a Trojan horse insurrection using a Cloward and Piven tactic to overwhelm and change traditional regions into something the United Nations can’t manage as a result of chaos. Thus, that is the situation in the remote Missoula County Courthouse in western Montana—a remote outpost far removed from the noise created by progressives in virtually every North American city.
More than 120 people braved the snow and ice Monday to rally in front of the Missoula County Courthouse, protesting an effort by the Obama administration and its army of community organizers to plant foreign “refugees” into small cities in western Montana.
One of the speakers was a woman who moved recently to Montana from Amarillo, Texas, which has been inundated with thousands of refugees over the past 15 years.
“Amarillo is overrun with refugees,” said Karen Sherman, who stood and spoke to the crowd amid blowing wind and falling snowflakes. Sherman just moved to Missoula, a college town that serves as home to the University of Montana.
It’s a far cry from Amarillo, which she described as a city of rampant crime and cracking social fabric, thanks to the heavy influx of refugees sent there by the U.S. State Department in cooperation with the United Nations.
“Our city is failing because of the refugees. We have 22 different languages spoken in our schools. We’ve got 42 languages being fielded by our 9-1-1 call centers, and crime is just through the roof. We need to exercise caution, especially for the sake of our children,” she said.
We are under attack and have been for a long time. Even Fox New’s Rupert Murdoch is a member of an obscure open border network that seeks to devalue American citizenship from behind masks of conservative leanings to collapse national sovereignty. You have a right dear reader to be upset. The poor people encouraged to flock these American borders have deliberately been made into an impoverished state so that they could be used as pawns in this scheme, which was never fair to them. Rather than the leaders of the world allowing countries like China, Mexico, all of Africa and other far-flung places to care for their people with capitalism, they have sought to impoverish them so that they’d seek refuge within America and overwhelm the generosity of our nation so to cripple it into eventual collapse. From there, the United Nations intends to manage the globe in the wake of American dominance—and just about everyone of any merit or power is in on the deal.
Western Montana is not a place of vast immigration. It is extremely rural, and the intention of the immigrants dumped there is to attack the culture of American tradition so prevalent. This United Nations inspired insurrection is an aggressive assault on American culture, and it should be repealed with anger, which those 120 people espoused. The situation is entirely inspired by deliberate mismanagement of people’s lives for the fundamental take-over of a way of life. It is a stunning effort by some of the biggest stars and wealthiest people within the United States who have decided themselves that they would vote to limit access of their way of life to those seeking the American dream. People like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are deep in the well of United Nations strategies and Democrats who hope to have those two stars host and supply funds for their political campaigns adopt the values of the Hollywood left, leading a progressive push to destroy the capitalism that made the movie stars rich to begin with. People like Pitt and Jolie were like lucky lottery winners, so they have a natural guilt about their wealth because unlike people such as Donald Trump, they didn’t have to earn every last dollar they made, they simply were in the right place at the right time. Yet they are able to command respect because of their wealth, but because they are second-handers by nature, they crave United Nations management and are willing to sacrifice capitalism to have safety and security for their docile minds.
Rupert Murdoch is from Australia—which is a socialist country. Most of the GOP candidates have had to form themselves around his Fox News conservative framework making people like Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and many others eat from the hand of Republican donors who are submissive to Murdoch’s open border sympathies—and none of them can be trusted—which is why there is a rebellion currently in the Republican party run for the White House. I trust Donald Trump not because I think he’s a good person—which I do think—but because he is financially independent of “the system” and can operate free of their influence. I think right now in our history that financial independence is the most valuable trait of a future American president. Because the United Nations has its claws in American politics too deeply—and it has to stop–it is the most important issue in this coming election. It will never stop so long as candidates need to raise money and follow a plot that was constructed by the United Nations desire for global socialism. America is under attack with illegal immigration to topple capitalism so that socialism will sweep in and take control of our free market system. The evidence is already clear in cities like Seattle, which is actually run by socialist city council members, Detroit, which has been managed into bankruptcy and complete restructuring by the same type of minds—and Chicago which is on the edge of bankruptcy and is in serious contention under complete command of irresponsible fiscal Democrats. These demographic numbers and the wasteland of their imposition were created by floods of immigration meant to topple logic, consume all the financial resources, and change the voting patterns—leaving in their wake the socialism of the places these immigrants came from.
With immigrants usually comes a very hard-working people who are just happy to make an honest wage in a secure country—where war is not ripping apart the fabric of existence and you typically don’t have to worry about bandits coming into your home in the middle of the night and raping the women and killing all the men. But, because they were raised and taught incorrectly, they bring with them a village mentally that loves communism and is skeptical of capitalism. They tend to vote for Democrats and Bernie Sanders style socialism, which was always the United Nations strategy. Topple America as an independent nation secure its sovereignty with crushing debt, then restructure it from its defaulted loans into United Nations management. Celebrities are on board with this strategy as well as most of the establishment politicians. It’s not a conspiracy, it’s a fact. Just check out the politics of Rupert Murdoch and the boards he sits on. I honestly think Murdoch is hoping to shape that future toward conservatism with his media empire, but he is certainly an open border supporter following the United Nations strategy that has been in place since its creation after World War II.
To show how far-reaching this problem truly is, just consider that Missoula County in Montana has been targeted. The people there know it, and they don’t like it. So the question remains, what are we going to do about it? You can’t trust anybody in authority—they have all sold out. There are no modern actors that I know of in the mainstream who stand against this United Nations strategy, and most politicians want the campaign donations of the wealthy Hollywood types so they go along to get access to the kind of money Democratic activists with disposable income can provide. I propose that we have to think outside the box and cut ourselves off from the corrosion of K-Street lobbyists, because that is the heart of the problem. And for me, that starts by electing someone like Donald Trump. The problem is far too severe to think conventionally. The only way to beat them is by doing the unexpected.

Prior to the Iowa caucuses I liked Ted Cruz; I thought he’d be a good running mate to Donald Trump. But his strategy in winning there certainly raised my eyebrows. When Donald Trump first started complaining about it, I thought he sounded like a sore loser—a second place runner-up. But as more facts emerged regarding the Cruz campaign floating a CNN report about Ben Carson dropping out of the race after Iowa, and the look of the Cruz campaign literature, it was clear the supposedly honest Ted Cruz—the Christian conservative from Texas, was running a guerrilla warfare campaign designed to sway voters a few percentage points in his favor. And it worked. He needed to win Iowa and he managed to sway enough voters in his direction to pull it off. But the way his campaign purposely misled voters in the final hours is something to take notice of.
In the end, it was his Mike Huckabee moment; Ted Cruz will be remembered for his win in Iowa then his sharp drop off in the subsequent primaries. I can’t say I blame him for trying to win, but to even do so with a tinge toward deceit is not the way to do it. He should have known better and his bad judgment makes me question him as a person. I do not any longer see him as an honest option. It has changed my opinion of him as a viable vice president. The measure of a man—or a women—is how they behave under pressure. Under pressure, Ted Cruz folded and compromised his ethics—clearly. Would he have won without the little schemes—probably, but he should have trusted his ground game without the antics—his victory wouldn’t have been this tainted.
Should Trump have pointed all this out looking like a sore loser? Actually, yes, he did have a point. Republicans are too often way too conciliatory toward loss. It is refreshing to see Trump get angry and to lash out at the proposed cheating. Cruz either has scandalous characters running his campaign, or he personally knew what was happening. Either way, they are Cruz people and the boss is always responsible for the content of the people working for them—whether or not it’s fair. Cruz because his people have shown a propensity to manipulate the facts, is guilty because of them.
There were several interesting issues that emerged after the Iowa caucus. First was the overwhelming joy that the mainstream press and politicians had toward Donald Trump in “losing” in Iowa. This was a pretty baffling sentiment to me; the presidential primaries are a lot like a NASCAR racing season. You don’t always have to finish first; you just need to average consistently high marks to win the season with points. Trump got a lot of delegates in Iowa, and he’ll get a lot more in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, and Arkansas. He doesn’t have to win every one of those states outright. He just needs to finish in the top three, and he could still win the nomination. You’d think before everyone from the Cruz camp ran their mouth, they would have considered those elements.
But they didn’t, Trump gave a gracious speech congratulating Ted and he moved on to New Hampshire pretty fast. But the media and other politicians decided it was time to swipe at Trump and he got pissed off. Look, I understand Trump. The more he talks the more I think he’s a long-lost brother of mine. After a few hours of prodding, he blew up and started lashing out, and I would have done the same. Cruz won under questionable circumstances—by his own doing, and he deserved to have some bombs thrown in his direction. On the delegate count, Cruz is not poised to do well in the next couple states, so the small lead he gained from Iowa will evaporate quickly so his arrogant speech and actions after the victory were misplaced. He should have played it much smarter.
I have a general policy, when I have a great victory; I tend to play it like I’ve been there before—because I have. To get all animated over wins is to show the world that you don’t feel such things very often. I believe in the adage, act like you’ve been there before. On occasions when things don’t come out the way you want them to; don’t cry about it like a baby. Just move on. If someone gloats in your face, knock them on their ass. In my assessment, Trump was willing to be gracious. He congratulated Ted and was moving on. But Ted and his supporters gloated about their victory and it pissed off Trump. So he knocked Ted on his ass, and Cruz deserves it.
Then of course came the revelations of impropriety the following day, and many who hoped that Trump had been humanized into compliance for the first time in his life were shattered to learn that he was fighting hard at what had occurred. They called his behavior a Trumpetantrum. Cruz went so far as to call Trump more immature than his young girls. Actually, he used the words, “well-behaved.” Well, we all know what that means to a politician. Well behaved is an insult, it’s an assumption that people will do as they are told and act in accordance to the laws of orthodox. I don’t want a well-behaved president in the White House. I want an ass kicker and a rugged individualist. I’m not looking for a king to tell me what to do; I’m looking for someone who is capable of thinking like me in the Oval Office. Someone who won’t get pushed around and someone who is willing to call out misconduct. I’m not looking for even temperament in a president. Ted Cruz attempted to paint Trump as a reckless maniac who should not have his hands near a nuclear option—from what reference is the Texas senator representing? What experience does he have under duress, to stand in front of the senate and read Doctor Seuss books? Trump has actually built structures worth many hundreds of millions of dollars and he navigated a delicate minefield of politics to perform the task. In several decades of being a top dog in the real estate world, Trump never “lost it” over anything. Sure he has a temper, but he’s always in “control.” What stress has Ted Cruz experienced that dictates that he has the temperament to handle a nuclear option? Who between the two, Trump and Cruz has the best ability to out-wit a potential enemy country? Trump is a LOT more qualified if we are comparing apples to apples.
The established order loves conquered people. They like people who have faults and are aware of those follies. They are failed people themselves and it hurts them to write about and consider a person who is not a guilt riddled idiot. The world was praying for a beaten Trump, a person who had fallen on his sword and was willing to yield. Well, he was gracious, but he’s not a beaten man. And because of that, he has the authority to call out Cruz for misconduct—because he plays things straight and aggressive. Cruz should have seen the terrain and stuck to it, but instead he got power-hungry and showed his cards too early. Now he has ruined himself. Yes, he got the win, but he lost the war. He should have been loyal to a winner by acting like one himself, instead of a school kid who scored his first hockey goal. In the process of his celebration he cheapened himself in ways that are irreparable. Now he’s worthless to the freedom movement—and that is something I didn’t want to see. Yet, for all the embarrassment that is coming his way, he should have known better.
