Thank God Greg Gianforte Won: We need more politicians who body slam reporters

Yes, Greg Gianforte still won in the Montana special election for a valued Republican congressional seat after he body slammed a Napoleon Dynamite type Guardian reporter to the ground and broke his glasses.  I’m not going to tell you dear reader that you should never body slam reporters like Rush Limbaugh, Paul Ryan and most of the Fox New television personalities.  Rather, I’ll say that sometimes violence is part of life and when people disrespect your space, you have to take action.  It’s unfortunate that these things sometimes happen, and Gianforte apologized for losing his cool, but when these pin-headed millennial, skinny pants, metro sexual, progressive reporters try to hide their malice behind civility, sometimes the only remedy for them is a good ass kicking.

I would say I’m an excellent communicator and whenever violence happens it’s a complete breakdown in communicative options. But even then about two or three times a year I get into a scuffle with somebody over something and violence does take place occasionally.  Now I haven’t punched someone in the face in a long time—haven’t needed to recently.  But I can certainly see where Gianforte needed to hold his ground from an intrusive reporter trying to get his story at the expense of the congressional candidate’s sanity.  Gianforte was in the final stretch of an election he worked hard on and he didn’t feel like talking and this prick stuck a microphone into his personal zone—so what did that reporter think was going to happen?  You see, these stupid kids think they can be ass holes because they are protected by the law.  But in the good ol’ days when men were men, women were women, and dogs slept on the porch protecting the front door from bad guys—people had respect for each other because if things got out of line, a fight might break out—so civility took front stage in most discussions.

Liberals were aghast that Gianforte won the election and they attributed the victory to the “Age of Trump” where alpha males are making a comeback and are on a rampage—which I would say is the liberals own fault. They are the ones who pushed their luck and if liberals hadn’t abused people for such a long time with this tight-assed political correctness, people like Gianforte wouldn’t be gaining grounds in these elections.  But I can say I couldn’t be happier.  I wouldn’t have cared if Gianforte made a belt out of that Guardian reporter, I would have voted for him in less than a second.  Not that we need “men” in these positions over say “women” but we do need authentic people who will stand their ground when pressed even to the point where they are body slamming people when necessary—because sometimes it is necessary.

A lot of times when I find myself in such a situation it is due to all the methods of civility being exhausted and pricks like that reporter still keep pressing as they hide behind contemporary rules and sensibilities to pry at you when they think you won’t strike back. That is precisely when you have to grab them by the throat and smash them to the ground because they assume you won’t do it—because the rules of society currently favor them at the moment. But it wasn’t always that way—and I’d argue that we should return to such times for the sake of humanity.  It’s OK to press for a story and even to be aggressive.  But people have a right to have their minds and if they don’t feel like talking that doesn’t give a reporter the right to stick a microphone down their throats out of the illusion that the “public” has a right to know everything anytime.  The “Age of Trump” is clearly a trend in the direction of personal sanctity—which is starting to emerge in elections and will make America stronger for sure.

It is perfectly alright to occasionally kick the shit out of someone, especially if they deserve it. You may get into a lot of trouble for it—and I have—but it’s good for everyone to have that out there as an option.  It is not good for a society to assume that violence has been taught out of our society and that the state will sort out all conflicts between human beings as liberals think.  Most conflicts are better resolved in the moment and when I have had fights with people I find that afterwards healthy understandings develop that allow for a respectful relationship instead of the issue lingering in court for months and costing both sides thousands of dollars.  A good punch in the face can save everyone a lot of money and get to a respectful exchange much faster and more effectively and these stupid millennial kids who work as reporters these days as extensions of their liberal college educations need to learn some hard lessons.  If you press someone like Gianforte in disrespectful ways, he might body slam you to the ground.  You don’t get up from something like that and say, “you just body slammed me and broke my glasses.”  What a pussy.  You get back in his face if you think he did you wrong and you fight it out.  That weasel you see hoped to use the law ,or the threat of a law, to allow him to continue to attack Gianforte as a member of the protected press.  He assumed that the congressional candidate wouldn’t be able to fight back and would just stand there and take it.

We see the results in people like Bill O’Reilly who has lost his very good job to losers like this Guardian reporter.  I spent some time in Europe this year and watched for weeks on end little pricks like that body slammed reporter espouse hours of liberal rhetoric without fear of any kind that somebody might punch them in the face for being ass holes—because they live in a “civilized progressive society” in Europe and nobody takes action against anything.   They just sit around eating food and drinking wine as their nations drown in financial ruin.  But not so in America.  Thankfully we are turning away from that European pussyness and are starting to elect people like Trump and now Gianforte who will hold their ground when pressed—because that is more representative of the American people than the Napoleon Dynamite press corp.

Ten years ago Napoleon Dynamite was a favorite movie in my house.  We watched it many times and laughed openly upon those viewings—because there was a lot of truth in it.  But now those kids of that generation are now working in Washington as reporters and they are a bunch of pussies.  For many of them they have a good ass kicking coming—it may be the only way to straighten them out.  So while I understand why Gianforte apologized—rightfully, I am happy that he still won the election, that people stood behind him—because he was the right guy to win.  And if he needs to body slam someone in congress, I hope he won’t refrain from doing so, because sometimes that is the necessary thing to do—when law and order have been exhausted, and debate found useless—sometimes the right thing is just to pick somebody up and throw them to the ground beating the snot out of them, and breaking their God-damn glasses.   Because in doing so you might be doing them a favor that will help them not be ass holes to other people for the rest of their lives.  And without that threat, the human race is a weaker, and more evil species.  There is honesty in conflict which has a value all its own.

Congratulations Greg Gianforte!

Looking Forward to, Summer: Michelle Cline of Hickory Ridge High School is what’s wrong with public education

There is nothing wrong with women who have small breasts. And there really isn’t anything wrong with women who are smart—the smarter the better. But let’s face it, women—especially liberal women who claim to be all one voice speaking in unity the virtues of feminism, have an extreme dislike of women who are both voluptuously gifted, and smart, because they know that there are many options available to such women and the feminists are infinitely jealous. In fact, you could say that behind most butt ugly feminists who arrive at middle age—manless—or with those little wiener tag-alongs that often accompany such women to middle-aged dinners—it is their lack of access to good male genitalia that is often their problem and they hate other women who do have such access. They become feminists because misery loves company. And if I had to bet money on the motivations of the lunatic principal Michelle Cline of Hickory Ridge High School, North Carolina when she harassed and suspended a graduating student who was wearing the type of clothing Europeans typically love—it wasn’t a dress code she was concerned with. It was the dismay she had with the honor’s student named Summer who had both great intelligence and attractive physical features which set the unhappy 44-year-old women into a power-hungry fit.  Here is the story as reported:

A senior at Hickory Ridge High School in Harrisburg, North Carolina fears her future is in jeopardy, and it’s all because of a shirt.

According to an NBC affiliate in North Carolina, Summer wore a long sleeve green shirt that exposed her collarbone on Wednesday. During lunch period, she was approached by her principal who asked if she had a jacket.

In the suspension notice from Hickory Ridge High School, the principal told Summer to cover up with a jacket.  The report stated Summer responded with, “I think my shirt is fine.” The principal then told Summer that her lower back was also completely exposed, so she was not in compliance with dress code. Summer repeated again, “My shirt is fine.”

According to the report, a friend offered to loan her a jacket.

Biologically speaking we should all be proud of Summer.   As an attractive young woman, she could have simply decided to rely on her looks to carry her through life because what feminists fear most is that voluptuous breasts will still give women access to powerful men usually of the woman’s choosing.  Where some meat-head looking chick would have to go begging for a date, women like Summer have to be selective in who they spend their time with during the courting rituals that typically occupy the time of young women.  Summer as we can see will be as successful in life as she chooses to be because beauty does have a market value—and she as an individual is in command of it—which drives feminists nuts.  But Summer wasn’t happy with just her looks, because as all smart people know, looks last only so long.  By the time you’re thirty years of age people start to stop looking at attractive women and you better have something else going on in your head if you want to stay relevant.  Because by age 40 nobody wants to sleep with you except for other people’s rejects—and that’s not fun.  Being smart, building your life correctly from the start with as few mistakes as possible are the keys to living a good life—especially if you’re a woman.  Those who fail to do this become crazy feminists angry at life—and Summer obviously isn’t one of those young women.  She’s doing the right things so far.

But even worse than a young woman in a public school who is pretty, and is smart is a student who has a mom that loves her and in this case, Summer has that too. Crazy liberal teachers like Michelle Cline believe that the public school is the primary instructor of society—and that the parents are secondary.  Of course, they never admit this openly, but their actions confirm it.  Parents are meant to be ruled over.  So when Principal Cline who had worked her way up from a lowly teacher to run the Hickory Ridge High School targeted the young Summer as a potential threat to her own existence as a modern feminist—mom stepped in to remind the school that her parental role in her daughter’s life was more important than the public school.

I don’t know Michelle Cline personally. I’ve never spoken to her.  I’ve not met her.  But looking into her face—I know her.  I can see the way her goofy eyes look back at the camera what kind of person she is and I can say that I’m sure she plotted for a long time how to ruin the life of Summer in some way while she still could—before the young lady moved up and away from her grasp.  Michelle you see had to work so hard in her life just to have mediocre results and she really had to kiss some serious ass to become the principal—yet Summer would cruise through life with beautiful looks, a great work ethic, natural intelligence and a mother who loves her—and that just drove the homely Cline crazy with manipulative rage.

I could be wrong, and we could all be struck by lightning at the same time on a perfectly sunny day—concurrently. Anything can happen in life.  But I doubt I’m wrong—as I’m usually not.  In fact I can’t remember the last time I was wrong about something honestly.  As news reports jumped on this little story in North Carolina everyone sort of danced around the real issue.  We should never give someone like Michelle Cline authority over our children.  Anybody that insecure should not be in charge of anything.  If they want to teach kids things, then teach.  But getting drunk on power is something that should not be endorsed by anybody getting a salary from the tax payers—which Cline does.  This is the real problem with public education—it doesn’t exist to make kids better or smarter, otherwise the school would bend over backwards to accommodate people like Summer—good kids who just want to make a good life for themselves.  Instead, public schools are committed to ruining children and destroying their relationship with their parents in nasty liberal ways of undermining their natural authority. It wasn’t Principal Cline who was there helping the young Summer learn to walk, learn to read at home and engaged in hours and hours of mental development through conversation—it was Summer’s parents.  Principal Kline only existed to help put a little icing on the cake—yet she assumes to take all the credit by trying to undermine the young woman in one great jab—hoping to secretly to derail the enterprising honor student on last time before success might find her.

It is hatred that is at the heart of such people. On the outside they often speak of wanting to help all people through altruism, but often people like Michelle Cline hope that pretty girls end up as strippers, whores and otherwise physically destroyed by unwanted pregnancies so that those vibrant young looks will quickly be washed away by the guilt of abortions and countless cigarettes looking for love in all the wrong places.  Meanwhile the ugly, the stupid and the corrupt find safe passage under people like Cline because they are not a threat to her power—power long gained through climbing the liberal ladder and greasing the right skids only to get a little truffle in life—an overpaid principal job that means nothing to anybody outside of that little brick building called a school. Meanwhile, Summer, she’ll have opportunities that people like Cline will never have and it’s not just because she’s a beautiful young woman in full bloom, but because she’s smart.   Feminists don’t like smart women—because they know better than to subscribe to the hatred that feminists have for life.  And that I would bet is why Summer was suspended.  The dress code was just the excuse.

Summer’s future isn’t over just because she didn’t walk across that stage to get her diploma. It may feel like it now, but that silly ceremony doesn’t mean a thing in the context of life.  But what she did in defending herself is to be much commended.  Rather than just taking the issue she fought back in the media and has obviously won.  That is the best way to graduate that there is—and she’s doing it.  As I said before, there is nothing wrong with people who aren’t physically and intellectually gifted.  But there isn’t anything wrong with people who are either.  Summer is fortunate to have both—and that is something to be celebrated, not torment.

The Good Work of Sean Hannity: Why Buck Sexton is wrong about the Seth Rich murder

Sean Hannity has been doing good work at Fox News for a long time.   But I have noticed a huge difference in him over the last few years as he has become more involved in martial arts—his reporting naturally has been more fearless.  As a person he is functioning from a position where he’s just not afraid of the mass pain that the collectivist lefties use through peer pressure to manipulate things in their favor and that has put Sean Hannity out in front while some of the old big dogs like Bill O’Reilly have fallen to the ankle bitters.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I wish for everyone to study some “martial art” so that you can make your life as fearless as possible.  Nobody should make decisions out of fear so by having some way to defend yourself against those who wish to use force to drive your opinions—you can be free of their intentions and do justice to the truth if you learn something in the martial art professions.

In my life I have not only had martial art experience as taught in the eastern philosophies, but I have been a bull whip expert for my entire adult life and I have used it often to keep villains away from my existence.  It has been very useful. And these days my Ruger Vaquero along with my fast draw rig is my very best friend in life.  I’m older now and can afford a hobby like fast draw shooting and I love it.  But in the back of my mind it is just another form of “martial art.”  It is nice to know that if someone has a gun pointed at me and my gun is still in a concealed position—that I can draw and fire before they can even react to my movement.  Those kinds of things allow people to be straight with each other and use honor to govern their interactions—and I think every human being alive everywhere in the world should experience such things.  By learning something that can defend you and your family from the force of others, you inspire the world to be more honest.  And that is what I see different in Sean Hannity as opposed to virtually everyone in the news business.  He has only gotten better over time and I think it’s because of his dedication to martial arts which then carry over into other aspects of his professional life.

As he is doing great work in defending President Trump, Julian Assange and the conservative movement in general, the political thugs out there are trying to knock him off the air the way they did Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes—by attacking the advertisers. Sean being keen on martial arts thought has learned how to block and while reporting on the explosive Seth Rich story, managed to get out in front of those efforts by reminding everyone what the left is up to behind the scenes which is great.  If I were running Fox News now that they have screwed up with what they did with Bill O’Reilly losing the 8 PM time slot to Racheal Maddow of all people—I’d put Hannity at 8 PM, Tucker at 9, then that Five show at 10.  The Five just doesn’t do it for me in that prime spot.  As I’ve said before, I don’t want to hear from the political left.  I get that during the Bret Baier news hour—I don’t want that during the prime-time hours.

I can say that now that O’Reilly is off at Fox I watch Lou Dobbs at 7 during dinner then go into my shop to work on reloads and shooting practice until Hannity comes on at 10.  I listen to Bill O’Reilly on his podcasts during this time so I’m not watching Fox—which is why they are now losing to the other networks.  I’m sure there are many others who feel the way I do.  I don’t want to listen to a bunch of lefties.  I have a special place for them in my day, but once that’s over—I’m done.  For entertainment purposes, I want to be around my own kind of people not hearing the wasted efforts of the progressive left who hate everything and have taken an alliance with the very nature of evil in this world.

Sean Hannity is really the last man standing and his coverage of Seth Rich has been phenomenal. The DNC has real trouble, they are down on fund-raising, they have no candidates who aren’t socialist losers and their future is bleak.  I think they know the only way they can stay relevant is to drive people like Sean from the airwaves so they can completely control the message and if any of their own step out of line, they kill them—which is what I think happened to Seth Rich.  They are a desperate party with a lost message that this new President Trump is going to outshine and they know it.  They are like mobsters and back when Seth Rich was killed, they thought they were going to win the election and maintain control—and that they’d get by with it the same way Hillary got by with her email crimes—or Donna Brazil got by with cheating during the debates.  Cheating and killing is what they do—and they do it so that when you are dealing with them that you fear for your own life and will yield to their demands if you want to continue living.  Let’s face it, that’s what the Democratic Party stands for.

I was doing some cowboy reloads for my .45 Vaquero after Bill O’Reilly was done and was listening to Buck Sexton whom I like well enough on The Blaze. He’s pretty good with Trump coverage so I catch him here and there but I couldn’t disagree with him more over the Seth Rich case where he doesn’t think there is any fire to the smoke.  I know Sexton has experience in “intelligence” but from my experience in actually knowing “hit men” I am sure that the DNC put out the request and that it was executed to the specificity of their desires.  In my teen years—a long time ago—but not enough to not be relevant to this discussion—I was friends with three hit men.  None of them were friends together but they all knew each other and me through a special relationship with a very respected judge in Southern Ohio.  They killed people and the judge knew about it and all the members of the various political parties knew what was going on.  The press knew it, the business owners knew about it and the old Cincinnati Bengal players that I hung out with knew it.  We all knew what these guys did and if your name came up on their request list, they’d come after you.

These hit men were really just normal guys except that they liked to kill people and they needed the law enforcement buy-in to do their work. As a 17-year-old I had several dinners at a big round table where one or two of these guys were there along with the judge and other important people and they all spoke on a first name bases knowing what their roles were.  The reason I was there was because they liked me and I had a personality where I liked to compete and they respected that.  I endeavored to have more nerve than those guys so they enjoyed teaching me things.  In many cases they had destroyed their personal families by living on the edge so their relationship with me made them feel like they had some value to their lives.  I married my wife two years later, which was good for me, and I don’t think that any of those guys lived five years beyond that.  Life in the fast lane usually ends much quicker, and I doubt they had any regrets.  But Buck Sexton’s premise that the DNC wouldn’t put out a hit for fear of going to jail—that was grossly naive.  I’ll give Buck a little credit, he’s probably a very nice person, but he’s certainly, obviously naive to evil—which surprises me given his previous profession. But let me say this, I have no doubt the DNC would want to kill anybody who was trying to wreck their plans of putting Hillary Clinton into the White House.  Their very existence depended on it—which we now can see clearly. And they had law enforcement on their side—look at the many crimes Eric Holder covered up—and Lorretta Lynch at the Justice Department.  The times that the “fifth” was invoked by Obama era bureaucrats—and executive privilege. I’ve seen such hits ordered and I was there when the strategies for implementation were created—with the help of lawyers and the justice system. So I 100% believe the DNC functioning at the highest levels of government would be using hit men to eliminate trouble.

But understand this, the use of force is meant to change behavior so whether we are talking about actual killings such as in the Seth Rich case, or the assassination of a talk show host on Fox News like Sean Hannity, the intention is the same—to use force to change behavior. With O’Reilly out of the way all guns are pointed at Sean Hannity—and in spite of that Sean is doing some of the best work I’ve ever seen out of him.  I attribute that not to any special skill that he’s newly developed except for the tendency to trust that he can defend himself against anything.  The key I think for Sean Hannity in this really tough time is that he knows he can defend himself against anything—which then disarms that political left and the villains who sit at big tables and order hits on people to shut them down.  One thing about those “hit men,” the truth of the matter was that they weren’t like the James Bond villains you see in the movies.  They weren’t very sophisticated.  They were just people who lacked a certain amount of natural fear and they would do things that most people wouldn’t even think of.  If you caught them off guard they could be beaten pretty easily.  The only real power that they had was in intimidation, but if you weren’t scared of them—they lost a remarkable amount of power quickly.  After all, anybody can shoot somebody in the back—it doesn’t take anything special.  And if you can take that option away from them, they really have nothing to work with.

Sean Hannity is a well defended person, he’s a concealed carry holder in New York City and now he’s rather proficient at martial arts. He knows how to take a punch and to deflect the energy into a good offense which is much more powerful than most people think.  And having that position, he’s prepared to do a great many things at Fox if they’ll stick with him.  We are fighting pure evil here and some of that evil is finding its way into the Fox management by way of fear, fear of the wrath of the murderous DNC—a dying American political party out of ideas—and bullets.   As we speak they are losing their friends at the justice department and in the courts and soon they won’t be able to have those round table discussions because the judges will be loyal to Trump, not Hillary.  Now that they are afraid for a change, we conservatives must to be willing to take the eye and the heart out of them forever—to step on their neck while we have them down and pop that head completely off.  And we must do it out of respect for justice.  Knowing the difference is the key to everything and you can learn it by knowing a proper martial art, whether it is traditional melee combat or gun fighting.  These days I prefer the gun fighting.  For most of my adult life it’s been the melee stuff.  But having something helps keep fear from your mind because you know you can handle anything they throw at you.  And that is the way to truly disarm evil.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild–The best video game ever

Mythology as people who know me best is my favorite topic.  I talk about politics because it has a direct impact on culture and mythology informs the philosophy which becomes politics.  But the foundations are always in mythology and to be entirely honest the latest Nintendo game Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most powerful tools of mythology to ever hit human culture.  I’ve been playing it now for about six weeks with no end in sight and I have to say—it may well be the best video game ever made.  I’ve talked about some great video games before, but this latest Zelda game is just something special. It is unbelievably good.  It is worth buying a Nintendo Switch just to play this game. It is astonishing.

I have no idea how they did it, or even why, but what the makers of Zelda: Breath of the Wild did was make a video game that has at least 200 hours of potential game play, perhaps even a 1000.  The world of Hyrule as presented in this game has so much in it, and it’s so vast that I’m not sure a video game player could do and see everything.  The amount of programming and planning that had to have gone into this game is simply mind-blowing.  I continue to be impressed with it even after playing it for nearly two months now.  It has become our primary source of entertainment at my house and is enjoyed by all ages.  My wife and I would rather play Zelda together than watch anything on television.  Its compelling, it’s adventurous and it is full of optimism.  It has been and continues to be a real treat—one I never came close to expecting.

Before I was able to get a Nintendo Switch I was at a local Target department store and saw two moms and about four little girls sitting in the floor with a long check list buying up hundreds of dollars of Amiibos that were on display.  Amiibos are little Nintendo characters that can be scanned into their game systems to give bonus rewards.  I looked at them as a pure gimmick and as a rip-off until I did manage to get Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  After that, I completely understood.  Adding up the cost of the Switch and the new Zelda video game, my wife and I have put in nearly $1000 into playing it.  We’ve had to go to Ebay to find special Zelda Amiibos which are sold out everywhere thus making them extremely rare and expensive online, and the whole adventure has turned out to be quite a nice journey.  While it’s possible to play Zelda without all the accessories, my wife and I have enjoyed using those accessories to enhance our experience.  For instance I am not a guide-book kind of video game player, but there is just so much in this game that without a good map and some details on how to find all the hidden parts of the game—you really wouldn’t get your money’s worth.  So we have gone all out on Zelda: Breath of the Wild knowing that we were likely to be playing it five years from now still.  It’s that kind of experience.

We were playing the game with our grandson and he was so into it that he spread out a big map that I have from the guidebook of the entire realm of Hyrule and he was comparing things on the map to what was in the book.  He’s too young to know how to read yet, but it was wonderful to see him take to getting the book on his own and pretend to read it the way I do in trying to unlock as many of the game’s secrets as possible.  For him this is his first big experience where an entertainment option extends over into other parts of his life which is what a great adventure should do—whether in real life, or just in a video game.  The mind really doesn’t know the different.  Some of the puzzles are monstrously hard but once you figure them out you feel great and want to tackle more of them.  Just guessing but I’d say there are at least 500 puzzles if you count all the shrines, the Korok seeds hunts, hidden treasures, and the normal plot parts of the game for which some are extremely complex.  Every new place on the map is a new discovery and every time we turn the game on we are doing something else.

I’ve talked about before how my wife and I played Star Wars: The Old Republic for at least two years every day back in 2013.  It was something we could do together and we had a blast.  She’s played World of Warcraft with my adult children before so we have some reference on MMO games so it says a lot when I say I think Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the best video game made to date.  What makes a game like this good is the open world game play where you feel you can do anything and go everywhere.  Usually there are parts of a video game experience where you run up against a programming blocks—even on the massive MMO games where you can’t go certain places because the video game designers were too lazy or not motivated to fill every possible place on a map with an opportunity for adventure, but not in Breath of the Wild.  You can literally go everywhere and do anything making it a nearly infinite experience.  I’ve never seen anything like it.  I mean there are a lot of great games out there, and I tend to talk about them when I run into them, but this Zelda game is in its own category.  It’s a true technical achievement that never sacrifices itself.  It clicks on all cylinders in what will surely become an industry setting standard that will change the video game industry.

While Breath of the Wild isn’t the biggest game ever created it makes the most of what it has.  The map of the new Zelda game is 23.5 square miles—about the same as Manhattan Island New York, but in literally every section of that map has something to do.  You could spend countless hours looking for things hidden in Breath of the Wild making this such a wonderful little treasure hunt that can frustrate you at times only to leave you elated with each accomplishment and coming back for more to recover the sensation. Never was that more real for me than in the section of the map called The Korok Forest.  Not only was that area playfully optimistic, it was extremely spooky at the same time and the puzzles were at times really difficult.  I can just imagine a team of people coming up with the various stories and puzzles just in that forest as the design lay out was just magnificent.  But that is such a small part of the whole game that it almost gets lost in the reviews—because there’s just too much to cover.  There is nothing small about Zelda: Breath of the Wild but as I said this isn’t the biggest video game world ever created—it clearly has the best level design that I’ve ever seen.  I have no idea how the Zelda creation team managed to get all the ideas for this game down on paper to a bunch of programmers to implement into a working reality.  There are so many options, so many outfits, good combinations, objectives that there is no way one player’s experience will be exactly the same as another yet the game works.  You don’t come along and find many glitches which allow you to buy into that world and the characters.

Then there is that other issue for which I am more than just a little obsessed, the idea of ancient technology being superior and the cycle of life coming around and around again,–the Vico cycle. There is a huge amount of that topic in this game, so it has been a wonderful experience—and I’m far from done with it.  But when I finally do finish it, I have no doubt that this will be one of the greatest games ever made—yet another benchmark for the industry but even more than that, an exceptional entry in perfection.  It’s easy to consider video games as silly things for a new generation to keep themselves busy with—but Zelda: Breath of the Wild is certainly something bigger than that.  It is the first massive game of its kind that can go with you while traveling due to the nature of the Switch game console.  It essentially is the first game of its kind to actually weave itself into all aspects of our reality with an optimistic story of honor and fearless pursuit of vanquishing evil all while enjoying the little things in life.  The only thing that I wish was that every video game was as good as this one—because this is one of those things you only see a few times in a century—creatively as an art form.  It’s that good.

Saving the Middle East: See the smoke, the DNC has the matches

Long before Donald Trump was running for president I had read his books, because why not—he was enormously successful personally and I wanted to know his thoughts on business. He did have for most of the last decade one of the top-rated television shows about project management and general business practices that there was on The Apprentice—so reading Trump’s books was a logical thing to do.  He thinks big and correctly on most things business related and he really knows how to prioritize concepts for actual implementation.   Given that, I thought it was laughable that a bunch of pin-head establishment types actually questioned his foreign policy experience when Trump had been traveling around the world for years networking and building some of the best real estate that is out there—anywhere.  Politicians argued that the experience gained from the private sector would be of little use to Trump.  I thought otherwise of course and cast my vote along with intellectual support appropriately.  Through the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency it was obvious he was going to have good foreign policy.  But it was when he left for his first foreign visits starting with Saudi Arabia, then Israel, then the Vatican and onward that it became clear just how good Trump was going to be.

Knowing Trump through his books and watching him over the years, I feel I know what he’s doing in the Middle East and it’s working. By the reception of him in Saudi Arabia it was clear that they wanted to send him a message that they wanted to be in the United States corner—in a big way.  No other American president in history could have commanded that kind of respect and it comes due to the fact that Trump was successful as a person long before he was ever a politician and all those guys know him.  So with the power of the United States at Trump’s back—they literally rolled out the red carpet with a massive ceremony.  The trip to Israel was followed with similar enthusiasm.  Anybody who thought Trump was going to be a bumbling mess unprepared for foreign engagement was sadly mistaken and you could tell by the dead silence from the political left that the president’s foreign trip was a glittering success.  You’d have to be dead not to see the light of it.

What Trump’s foreign policy visit demolishes is this old aristocratic notion that elected office holders without any merit to their name were somehow superior to hard-working people who arrived at the top the old-fashioned way. That notion has been shattered forever as it will take years for those reluctant lefties to admit just how good Trump has been on foreign policy.  Reading a lot of history I can say that the ramifications of this trip will resonate through the centuries to come.  Teddy Roosevelt had a similar moment during his second term as president when he painted battleships white and paraded them around the world to show that America had arrived on the global stage.  Big speeches from Martin Luther King and John Kennedy came to my mind as Trump spoke about evil and the soul in the heart of Islam.  I could almost see the future exhibits at Disney World’s Epcot Center where Trump’s words would speak to the future generations quoting that speech as the moment that peace in the Middle East started.  Of course there is years of work yet to be done between Israel and the Palestinians, but history will look back to this point in time when it started.  Trump and the show surrounding him was simply amazing.

Meanwhile the small-minded press was stuck all Monday morning trying to push a silly narrative that the Russians helped Trump get elected president—and it wasn’t sticking. The Seth Rich story is picking up steam because there is fire behind the smoke and it leads to a DNC holding the matches.  The Russian story is going nowhere and once the fuel of that narrative runs out, Trump is going to have all these successful endeavors to show for his body of work and the political left is going to really have a bad day then because they will have by that time alienated themselves from the victories of the “American” team.  And all these methods of doing things were always there in Trump’s books if people would have just read them.  He’s doing exactly what I elected him to do—in precisely the correct way.

When you’ve been at the top of the game for as long as Trump has events like this foreign visit are a piece of cake. In Trump’s case the risk is all political which at his age he could care less.  It’s not like he’s trying to set up a nice job after he gets out of office.  Unlike doing deals when his own money and reputation were at stake, this stuff is easy for him and it shows.  Politicians who have never achieved anything in life in the past always relied on the unspoken code of lost aristocracy in such occasions—which is why nothing ever happened but talk.  Trump as a man of action expects results and the people he is dealing with know it, and respect it—which is the largest difference in this case.  People in life respect results driven people and that is why there is a real opportunity to finally have tangible results in foreign policy from this current White House.

The political hate for which so many subscribe is driven largely not in jealously toward Trump but in the fear that what Trump does will inspire more merit based results in the future—which is going to happen regardless of their made-up rebellion about Russia manipulating the American election. Democrats lost the 2016 election because they sucked and their media outlets in bed with them did not have the minds of America as strongly as they thought they did.   And with just a few more months of behavior against President Trump as they have so far engaged, where 93% of all news stories about the new president have been negative—they are losing credibility by the day, yet they can’t stop themselves from making the situation worse.  They just can’t get it through their heads that politics has changed in America from one of subscription to a long dead aristocracy to one driven by merit.  People respect people for what they do in life, not what name they have or what society they belong to.  Trump is the embodiment of merit.

Trump is playing chess several games ahead of everyone else while the world is playing checkers. Or put another way, the world is playing Tick Tack, Toe while Trump is playing high stakes Poker.  In Poker holding the right cards and bluffing when needed is part of the game and people playing the simpler games in the media must understand that Trump is playing this game for goodness well beyond the most intricate manipulations seen in some television show like House of Cards.  Part of Trump’s brilliance is that he doesn’t speak like a master of the English language—he speaks common speak—but he thinks on a scale that defies his ability to communicate it except in non-verbal communication—the way he walks, shakes hands, and stares at the camera.  For instance, Trump’s visit to the Western Wall which inflamed both sides in the Israeli/Palestinian negotiations was purely tactical.  Trump can do something like that where nobody else would even dare it.  After all, from a business perspective, if you always do what you’ve always done…………… know the rest.  Trump made himself the first U.S. President to visit the site—ever.  Yet he can do it without overthinking the situation because it evokes an improvement in the situation.  It forces everyone to put their cards on the table and show what they have—which a professional negotiator at any basic level should be able to do.

Politicians and aristocratic loving media who wish to report on the pomp of the presidential office don’t like Trump because for a change the job is getting done the way the Founding Fathers always intended. We were never supposed to have a bunch of peacocks working from the Executive Branch trying to appease people instead of driving them to perform.  To perform a person must understand through merit what they are asking and in regard to politicians, they just don’t have it.  But Trump does and that was on full display in the Middle East. History has been made in a big way and the world will certainly never be the same—for the better.

Knowing the Difference Between Good and Evil: Definitions that need to be understood

It occurred to me after some feedback on an article we all explored here together on the topic of designating evil as a proper psychiatric disorder to explain the common behavior of Washington D.C., that after all this time many people may not have a proper definition of the word evil for which to use as a foundational reference.  Of course such things cannot be allowed to happen.  For our cause dear reader the definition of evil is as important to understand as it is to reference the word “hot” in a cooking class.  Without a proper reference there simply isn’t a way to comprehend the material.  So let’s define evil properly so that we can all advance this treacherous topic forward for the betterment of mankind.

Many of my readers have taken note over the years that I love a lot of things—I love McDonald’s on road trips.  I love music, movies, Mello Yello soft drinks.  I love accomplishment, I love video games.  I love family.  I love television documentaries.  I love little children who aren’t yet five but can say three syllable words fluently without struggling to find the proper applications.  I love, I love, and I love.  It is never hard for me to find some reason to live no matter how bad a day may be because there is so much that I love about life that it’s really never a challenge.  For me, it is that love that makes it so easy to spot the villainy of evil as it seeks to spread among us unmolested.  I think for many, especially those with poor reading comprehension who clearly associate evil within a Biblical context that is discussed on Sunday church services, they tend to regulate their understanding to just religious discussions but are shy about making such judgments in everyday life.  We are all taught these days starting in our public schools not to judge others.  Our media then carries that torch and declares that judgment is something that we shouldn’t do so thus, evil doesn’t get a name so many people wonder through life never really loving anything because evil is present and molesting their thoughts without anybody really saying anything about it.  Those authorities will point to someone like me and say, “Rich Hoffman declares himself to be “good” yet he doesn’t turn the other cheek as the Bible insists or that he has a history of violence when things don’t go his way—so how can we trust what he says and does on the subject of goodness?”  And it is in that way that evil camouflages itself against the chaos and confusion of daily life so that without clear understandings of what it is, we throw our hands up in confusion and hope to navigate ourselves into an afterlife where a supreme being will eventually spell all this out for us.

So here is the easy way to understand evil and it’s workings at the most fundamental level.  Good is life and the desire to live.  Evil is bad and the desire to strip away life, love and natural passions.  For instance, I would say that Democrats as a political party represent evil because they are against human life.  While standing for equal rights, women rights and economic level playing fields they are foundationally committed to death in their support of abortion, drug use and attacking excellence because it takes human beings away from the premise of Mother Earth dominance.  The equal rights portion of their political platforms is a mask used to cover up the evil of their primary objectives which is a commitment toward death.  Put simply evil is “LIVE” spelled backwards.  Anything that is against life is evil and Democrats are against human life in favor of collective life.  Their morality might be in their preservation of “mother earth” so they’ll justify the killing of millions of human babies so to take away the pressure put on earth’s ecosystem.  In their minds they value the life on planet earth as if it were so special and unique that the sacrifices made by the human race and their personal comfort are justified.  Yet their entire political party is built on the foundation of death—of loathing, of jealously—of anti-life.

A simple cricket might go through its whole life and never contemplate good and evil.  It just lives, it eats and it dies without ever knowing the difference.  If it happens to be hopping along a driveway and one of our cars run it over not meaning to, nothing but a human mind might consider the entire exchange as a possible evil.  Democrats might say that if not for the invention of the car by humans the natural life of the cricket might have continued and life on Earth would be enhanced if not for those pesky humans.  But the Bible thumping conservative would consider such a thing as unfortunate but that all of God’s creatures are placed here for man’s use as the highest possible life form created in six days before God put up his feet on the seventh and watched a football game with a nice beverage in his hand to reflect a job well done.  Humans, unlike the cricket do contemplate that by losing life that such a thing would be evil because it robs the life form of all potential trajectories of life which comes to a conscious mind.  But only once a mind thinks does it become manifested into the fabric of reality.  If something just lives and responds to life under the umbrella of biology then such a concept of evil cannot be applied.  Only when considering a love for life can a thinking being evolve into separating acts between good and evil.

The mystic sage from the far East attempts to step beyond these pairs of opposites toward an enlightenment which holds the mind firm when disappointments rob people of the joy that life offers.  In Buddhism they call it the “immovable spot” and it is a good technique for not losing one’s mind when disappointment floods our lives with sorrows when joy was expected.  Democrats tend to point to the East and say, “ah, they know where they are doing over there.”  But they really don’t. Women, especially in China, Vietnam, Cambodia and all the way to India use the immovable spot narrative in their lives to endure terrible evil that is cast upon them.  Too many young children are abused by tourists, too many women sell themselves to the sex trade just so they can buy bread—evil is soaking the Eastern cultures of the orient to an extent that many people live every day miserable and praying for the day when it will all end.  They look toward Buddha’s immovable spot, or some other transitory explanation as a way to endure evil—but their culture doesn’t do much to combat evil other than hope that the “gods” might spare them from the intentions.  So they are slow to name evil in much the same way that Democrats refuse the judgment.  That’s not good.

To love life is to be good. To respect living to the point where you can say you love it—then you are espousing  goodness—even if the love is so trivial as to loving a Big Mac from McDonald’s.  The love of life, the creation of a new hamburger by human minds, the marketing of it and the convenience of experiencing it while traveling are all things that make them good—we think, therefore we are.  The cows at the slaughterhouse lost their life so that we could eat them at McDonald’s and hope to get a nice Happy Meal for our kids with the latest toy promoting some new movie.  Life was lost so that we could eat it and live at their expense.  Only the cow has no ability to love life or fear death—it just exists as part of a biological machine.  Human thought brings meaning to that life.

By saying that something is evil it by definition it works against life either by kicking up dust so that we can’t properly see our subjects, or in maintaining their camouflage by preventing judgment from identifying their workings in modern society.  But the motivations are always against living.  If it goes against the human desire to appreciate life, it can be said to be evil.  Getting drunk is evil because it goes against human thinking—the desire is to turn off the mind instead of turning it on.  Abortion is evil because it kills life.  Being a workaholic is evil if it prevents you from enjoying life in service to some faceless institution.  Collective based sex—orgies, multiple partners, and mass consumption of pornography is evil because it cheapens the individual experience that was always supposed to be reflective of procreation with an emphasis on life.  The guy who rapes an inebriated young woman passed out from too much drinking at a college party commits terrible evil because he takes the sex without the emphasis on enjoying it with another human being willingly.  What’s the point unless the exchange was mutually beneficial and a celebration of life?

By understanding the nature of the word, “evil” as being “live” spelled backwards we find that it is much easier to understand it.  If something stands against life, it is said to be evil—not necessarily cosmic life, but human life in that as an intellectual being meanings are created that evoke either love for life or the thought of it being gone the next day.  Just yesterday a bunch of people who work for me occupationally, had a party.  My intention was to celebrate a little bit of living life because things have been tough for the last few weeks—so dozens of people brought food and drinks all with the intention to have a little fun and celebrate just being alive. There was a lot of very nice food, some of it very exotic, but even with all those selections someone thought to bring a bag of Grippos barbecue potato chips which I just love and they obviously had me in mind when they did it.  They did it because they know my passions and love for that specific brand.  Because I “love” so many things it was fairly easy for these guys to think, “Rich Hoffman will love these,” and then to act on that impulse in the name of goodness.  There was nothing evil about the exchange—goodness was the centerpiece of the event. After it was over I was walking back to my car and across the parking lot I spotted a little worm that was squirming around under the hot sun cooking against the black pavement.  As I looked around I saw hundreds of similar worms that had been cooked after the recently heavy rain so one more worm wasn’t going to have much impact cosmically.  I could have easily have gotten in my car to drive away but instead I picked up the little guy and took him over to some high grass.  It might have still died, but at least it was cooler in the grass.  The worm has no consciousness to thank me for such a thing just like the people who brought Grippos to the party didn’t do it to get a raise or some special benefit.  Those types of things are done in recognition of a love of life and to respect it enough to give life a chance is always good.  To be good is to want to live.  To be bad is to want to commit evil by working against life.  And that is how you can tell the difference between good and evil.

Confronting Evil in Washington D.C.: Establishing a proper psychiatric diagnosis for the “swamp”

I think the great psychiatrist M. Scott Peck M.D. had a good point in his fantastic book about human evil titled People of The Lie when he thought that evil should become a proper scientific diagnosis for people emitting thinking disorders.  Evil people just don’t think properly about things and there are a lot of people out there who should be titled as such.  Many more than there should be.  And I think that what we have seen in Washington D.C. for a long time could best be collectively summarized as an evil embodiment of human degradation.   The cause of that degradation was summarized quite brilliantly in that mentioned book.  The evidence of its merit can clearly be seen in how various evil groups have challenged President Trump in the opening days of his new administration and as far as I’m concerned this is the biggest topic on the market and why I cover it almost daily.  What we are seeing in America is evil being exposed like a demon from a possessed host and that evil is screaming in fear from the top of their voice.

The tendency to view rich people as evil is what has allowed this terrible evil to foster so undisclosed. To the anti-capitalists for which this evil use as hosts Donald Trump is the definition of the word because he is diametrically opposed to their ominous objectives.  After all, the Devil rejected God in every way and is not shy about his hatred mythologically of the Supreme Being.  Donald Trump in our terrestrial sphere is good because he is the embodiment of capitalism and a love for it.  We’re not talking about moral precedence as viewed through Biblical doctrine, but the honesty of ego based ID which drives individuality and the competition that drives all life forward into the best emerging for society to enjoy.  We would term this good in America because it means the best products, the best people in their field, and the best ideas emerge for the necessity of value driven profit as opposed to the evil intentions of the moocher who desires to live off the exploits of others so that they can live in stardom as second-handers robbing merit along the way.

With that little qualification of evil out of the way we can then proceed to identify with clarity that evil is fully at work and that we must destroy it without any compassion. We’re not just talking about draining the swamp here in a political sense, we are talking about eliminating evil from the political process and restoring to the United States a sense of decency indicative toward the morality of capitalism.   Under such a morality people hold the door open for each other because you never know when you might have to work with them somewhere—because competition forces you to always consider the ramifications for your actions—whereas in a statist society there are never consequences because actions are committed under a collectivist cloud and nobody is responsible for anything.   It is that tendency which propels evil to emerge—under collectivists clouds where responsibility is often shunned without competition present to keep everyone honest.

Washington D.C. is a long way away from what the Founding Fathers embodied as people who were attempting a thought experiment which challenged aristocracy and even the concept of slavery to allow a nation of free people to emerge with all the difficulties that 18th century thought prevented.  The evil of our day would want you dear reader to focus on the evils of slavery and not the means of eliminating it.  Slavery was very much a part of the aristocracy movement of the time—but these Founding Fathers of America during their lifetimes stepped beyond that status symbol to eventually see people as individuals—even slaves.  So looking at Washington D.C. in that light, and the man from whom the place was named—it should be a very special place.  However, the evil that has dominated there for so long wishes to cloud the facts and to chain people’s minds to guilt, fear, and loathing so to elude a thinking mind from the miracle for which America is.

As a president, Donald Trump is the embodiment of the American miracle. True he has had too many wives, he’s had business ups and downs, and he’s certainly had his share of mistakes.  But what is morally righteous about him is that like all great Americans, he never caved to pain or pressure and always emerged better than when he was knocked down.  You can look back on his long-storied career of deal making and see a person who never cried over silly things or used personal tragedies as an excuse for not making the most out of every day.  Trump lost both his parents yet he never had a day where he loaded up on anti-depressants, or had stints where he was crawling around drunk and inebriated on a sidewalk into a taxi. Trump has always attempted to excel in everything he did and there is a lot of purity in that high standard.  The expectation has a great morality about it as opposed to the slack-jawed loser who uses everything as an excuse, takes no responsibility for their bad condition in life and seeks to tear down other people because achievements make the evil person look bad for their lack of them.

What I see in the criticism of Donald Trump by virtually everyone in the media are evil people shaken to their very cores by the sudden expectation of performance establishing itself as the very definition of good and evil in a way that was always intended in our American system. Our politicians should have always been such people—accomplished capitalists who have achieved the most among us through the honesty of competition—so that our society could accelerate toward unknown optimism for the first time in all human history.  This anger at Donald Trump from the entire Washington establishment is more than just political theater, it is the entity of evil which has captured so many minds, and its illustrious desire to remain in power which is now being challenged by this current White House.

This is precisely why those most wrapped in the blankets of evil wish to have no judgment cast upon them. That’s also why M. Scott Peck’s books used to be on the New York Times bestseller’s list for entire decades in the 80s but you can’t hardly find them in a bookstore at this present time—because evil wishes to do its ignominiously corrosive work undetected—in the shadows.  As an example, James Comey as F.B.I director was evil.  He obviously picked and chose laws differently depending on different people of political power and used his office as a way of sustaining party manipulation while hiding everything behind a Boy Scout like honest appearance.  But his actions deceive his intentions.  When he gave a speech not long ago declaring that he would remain F.B.I director for a long time he was challenging Trump with political pressure not based on merit for a job well done—but for the optics of his various investigations and how it might look to a media inspired by the same kind of evil to become his weapons in case of backlash.  When that backlash came Comey’s evil surrogates did what was always expected and they came at Trump and all his supporters with the fury of an exorcised demon.  The right fight was to do what Trump did and that was face down the evil onslaught because the purity of goodness wasn’t in the discussion, but in the fact that evil was upended and was angry for the first time in ways most of us have only dreamed of.

Evil is a very real thing. It is in people you know.  It is in institutions.  It is lucrative in every way that weak people find enchanting.  I’d go so far to say that most people have evil in their lives in various degrees and they are unaware of it—until they wake up one day and wonder where their lives have gone and why they are so miserable.  Evil as M. Scott Peck advocated for should be designated as a psychiatric disorder because it is.  It is the result of a depleted state of thinking and indicative of poor mental health.  Mental health just like other forms of health can be lost if it is abused.  Collectivist thinking is terrible for mental health the way that cigarettes, booze and too much soda pop can be for physical health.  If you think wrong about things you can destroy your mental health and evil will govern your actions.  And until Donald Trump came along in Washington D.C. most of the culture there was functioning from evil and were content with it.  But now a new value system is being established and evil is upset about it.  For that we should all be happy—those of us who strive to do what’s right—even when it’s the hardest thing to do in the world.  We should always do what’s good, and hard—because it’s what’s right.  Then as just an extra bonus is that is pisses off evil to its very core—which is always a good thing.
