The Two Ingredients All Successful Societies Must Have: Guns and Books

As I spoke yesterday about the faults of James Comey’s speech on personal security within the United States now I feel I must identify the real answer to what is required for a free society.  I’ve been working out this little problem for a while now and it really took my recent trip to Europe for me to confirm with more than theory the proper contents of what it takes to have a self-governed society functioning healthily in a constitutional republic.  As I’ve said before on other topics, I wish sometimes that life could be so simple for me to have one solitary occupation which I could throw myself into that I could say—I am this—or that.  Such as someone who works as an engineer might say upon introductions—“I’m so and so and I’m an engineer,” my life is a lot more complicated.  And if given the opportunity to be a historian I would do it, because I have an unnaturally complicated relationship with history.  I pursue it for fun and often find myself thinking about it all hours of the day.  Given that, I know much more about history than the average person, so when I say that the two big drivers of misery in Europe throughout the Dark and Medieval ages was the absence of personal protection—weapons—and the ability to read—I would be saying specifically how we can solve these problems going forward and take mankind off the track of the Vico cycle which has plagued us all for tens of thousands of years.  With those two elements absent from those historic societies—for which much of the known world of today is based—battles between church and state dominated the lives of everyone leaving individuality to sacrifice itself to national security many times over.

One thing that astonished me about the many English people who I met during my travels was how literate they were and proud of it.  They like to read in England and they should, the concept was born there.  It’s only been fairly recently that the printing of individual books was even possible for common people.  It was from 1400 AD to really the reign of King Henry VIII that Bibles were printed for individual consumption bringing the word of God to every household and leaving the Church to feel very insecure about their ability to usher mankind through the gates of Heaven for the good of the State.  I felt quite privileged to walk among the ruins of various monasteries in England, such as the great St. Augustine’s Abby because in 1536 AD they were destroyed out of a need for money by the regime.  That left the monks who had previously provided all the intellectual work of translating the scripture to the people who attended their churches to be the symbols of thinking in the medieval world.  After destroying the various monasteries, a power vacuum occurred and the Reformation effort spread as people started to question the relationship between an often corrupt Roman Catholic Church clergy, the various kings, and God.  By the time the first Welsh Bible was published in print during 1567 a lot of discussion regarding the Mathew’s Bible printed in 1537 had taken place.  King Henry VIII was very anxious about letting the lower orders of society read the Bible for themselves because it had severe political and social consequences.

It was only a few years later that Robert Cushman commissioned the Mayflower to flee to America to escape the church’s ever increasing losing grip on the “commoners” such as what happened in Canterbury quite explicitly as Henry’s children struggled with the social changes that reading Bibles had introduced to their society.  This explosion of thought advanced to the days of the pirates over the next hundred years as the exploits of the great Henry Morgan came back to England from the Caribbean region as countries used privateers to rob other countries of the loot they were stealing from the Meso American region.  Democracy was invented on pirate ships as they were functioning governments far removed from the countries of their origin and mankind was turned loose for the first known time in the history of the world—and writers like John Locke were there to record the observations for people like Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin to expand upon later.  Secret societies like the Illuminati and the Scottish Rites developed a line of philosophy divorced from the English crown as the publication of books began to create a new kind of human being among the would-be intellectuals who could afford books that in previous centuries were either monks or members of the king’s court.

During the 1750s those inspired by the new books of Europe to flee to America to live as frontiersman erupted into westward expansion.  During the years of the French and Indian War then eventually the Revolutionary War—then the War of 1812, then the Civil War the full fruition of knowledge shared through books were matched with the possession of personal firearms which allowed for the kind of self-reliance that Ralph Waldo Emersion and his friend Henry David Thoreau contemplated as Transcendentalists.  It is important to remember that as of all the events that lead to the Civil War in America books had only been present for reading among human populations for about 250 years.  Personal books were not available outside of state-run institutions until this present time and it was books that led to the explosion in even contemplating individual liberty.

It was all the way up to the beginning of the 20th Century that personal firearms were the keys to American life.  After all, frontiersman and cowboys were able to hunt and forge a life for themselves anywhere in the world so long as they had a gun and a Bible to read by the firelight to their families to pass the time—and human consciousness expanded rapidly.   The American Indian didn’t have a chance against these European escapees armed with personal firearms and the knowledge they had acquired from books printed in New England and shipped west to markets emerging along the many rivers of the new nation.  Indians were a collective based society and they were much like the oriental forces that had been crushed under the expanding French and English empires that were dominating the world driven not by the great military leaders of Napoleon and the likes Wellington—but of those societies having access to the ability to read for the first time.  They were smarter than their opponents and the North American Indian may have been living in accord with nature, but mankind was conquering nature through contemplation derived by reading—and the Indians lost because they couldn’t think as individuals.  Reading is a very individual oriented type of activity.

That gave birth to the American Western—of the cowboy gunslinger, which represented to the world something new—an individual human being protected by their gun and functioning as a self-reliant entity that didn’t need a church for their spiritual awakening—because they could read—and they didn’t need a government to protect them because they had a gun.  It was those two things that created the American cowboy and which eventually led the rest of the world to contemplating personal liberty.  As of the present, the world has not yet accepted the superior philosophic position of the American gunslinger because there is a lot more to it than just having the ability to take the life of another human being, or being able to read a book on their own without the interpretation of a church clergy to tell them what it said.   This is why socialist statists deeply concerned about this wave of personal freedom happening in American like Barack Obama were so weary about the electorate holding on to their “God and their Guns.  They know that it is those two elements that prevented a society from falling in behind the old European model where political elites controlled the commoners through ignorance and superior might.  Modern progressives desire deeply to take society back to the time right before Henry VIII where people could be managed between the church and the state which is why they support so vehemently the introduction of Islamic radicalism into Europe and America because they desire to use that religion to reduce intellectual capacity and drive society back to a theocracy instead of an intellectual republic without central controls.  That is also why liberals are all about gun control regardless of what the stats say on the matter.

It is therefore the ability to read and the ability to own a personal firearm and even to carry it around with you that decentralizes all governments and puts the power truly into the people—and it’s really a new idea which has only flowered in America.  As I said, the English people are very literate and that was refreshing.  But they don’t have guns, and so as a result they still live much the way they did during the Middle-Ages. Currently it’s not the Catholic Church or even the monarchy which drives their society, but their history in those activities still bind their society to that foundation just as Japan still fashions itself to their samurai period.  That leaves them all with one ingredient toward personal freedom, but not the other.

Only in America and only with both the gun and the books of our culture has freedom advanced.  America actually is on over saturation because not only do we have books, but we have 1000s of channels of cable television, 100 years of motion pictures to watch, endless books and countless things to entertain ourselves with—so literacy isn’t as high of a priority as it should be in our society—but there is no way to go back.  Mankind will never surrender their freedoms back to the security of state-run centralized society such as those envisioned by Henry VIII’s friend Thomas More in his book Utopia.  Those days are gone forever because just the act of reading a book like Utopia, or The Communist Manifesto, lead eventually toward a human mind craving freedom.  It’s the Catch 22 for progressives who want to revert back to a theocracy they control whether it is Islam or environmentalism that is worshipped.  Human beings once they get a taste for it won’t go back and if you look at history, you can see clearly a trajectory of thought that leaves us either destroying ourselves or settling space—but we won’t go back.  And societies around the world will not advance on just books and knowledge alone.  They have to allow for personal firearms in order to truly unleash the potential of the human beings in their societies.  You cannot have the good intellectual stuff that comes from a free society without doing the things it takes to have a free society and owning personal firearms is just as important as literacy.  And those are the facts.  You need two things to have a society of free people thriving in a country—any country—they have to be literate with plenty of books and a desire to read them, and they must have guns—lots and lots of them.

The Deep State is in Deep Trouble: How Wikileaks is actually saving lives in America

Yes, the “Deep State” is in deep trouble, and now you know why dear reader that I was so proud to stand beneath the Wikileaks headquarters at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to have my picture taken. I don’t normally pose for pictures like that but for Wikileaks I was happy to make an exception.  As Wikileaks provided a platform for someone within the United Sates intelligence apparatus to leak thousands of pages of very damaging reports as to what the CIA and FBI can do with our smart televisions, gaming consoles, and smart phones.  Many thought that revealing such information was traitorous—and that Wikileaks was acting in a hostile way toward the American government.  Well, let me tell you what’s hostile—a rogue government working behind the scenes of our election process trying to destroy a duly elected representative of the American people and attempting to start World War III with Russia as a scape goat to preserve their own power as a shadow government.  Yeah, that’s much worse of a crime against the constitutional republic that we have in America than the treachery committed by the leakers. I was proud to know that just above my head behind those windows in those small little rooms was Wikileaks doing real good in a very dangerous world by showing those Deep State insurgents that technology can work both ways.  Sure they can spy on us—know everything we do and build a profile on each of us to destroy everything that we hope to become with the push of a button at their discretion—but we can also spy on them and know where they are and what they are up to as well.  If they want to play that game—which they have been willing to do—then the tables can turn on them and Wikileaks has provided a platform to those who dare use them to undo these shadow governments around the world—and in this case one that is actively working against Donald Trump—who is sincerely trying to reform the way business is done in Washington D.C. for the better.  If John McCain is against Wikileaks you know you are on the right side of justice.  Better yet, if Facebook is against it—you really understand the magnitude of this new information which not only pulls away the cloak of deception that has hidden this Deep State in America—but it tears it away to reveal grotesque nudity.

I personally don’t worry about the spying because I know how to throw off their Deep State profile.   I’m still a guy who reads real books, not online downloads, so if I want to go dark on their profile building, or if I want to contaminate their mechanical data collection with rogue information to corrupt their data—I know how to do that—and I actually do put forth a considerable effort to corrupt their information gathering on me.  I came to that crises when I realized over 15 years ago that everything my wife and I did together—and everywhere we went—we were followed.  It took some getting used to in understanding that a closed door and a locked house didn’t save you from that “deep state.”  And that was well before everything we owned became a spy device for this shadow government.

How bad is it—well let me just elaborate that my daughter and I are probably two of the sanest and nicest people among all who claim such things on earth. We would never be terrorists or dangers to any state government that is legitimate by the standards of decency.  Yet while traveling around Europe and back to America guess who got pulled aside for “extra” security every single time when many more potential people were there to pick from—some of them obviously nefarious characters?  To some extinct I might understand security being concerned about me—but her?  Give me a break.  Yet, our names came up on their lists as people to watch and they let us know in subtle ways that they have their eyes on us.  As if I didn’t already know.  So pathetically small-minded.  But that’s who is on the other side of these listening devices, perverts, losers, people afraid of the real world—those are the types of people who find themselves in those “deep state” jobs to spy on people to preserve the shadow government that has been building itself up for many decades behind progressive policies. Donald Trump’s election for me, and it appears many others as well, was the hope that the “deep state” would finally be challenged and eventually eliminated—and that process is underway as we speak, and I am very happy about it.

It’s not a big deal to reveal to the rest of the world what our secrets are—because these were never secrets. Terrorists in the middle of Syria know that the United States has eyes in the sky that can see everything they are doing—yet they still do what they do.  It’s up to the political resolve of The United States to decide if courageous action will take place and under Obama and Bush—that seldom happened.  Under Trump—such as moving THAAD missiles into South Korea to protect it from North Korea proactive measures are back in style—thankfully.  But remember the terrorist case in San Bernardino where the FBI refused to call the act one of terrorism—until the leaks became too great—and when that same FBI let the media into the crime scene to destroy the evidence—and claimed that they needed Apple’s permission to gain access to one of the terrorist’s iPhones—which they already had—American intelligence has a failing grade at protecting us from terrorists.  With all the spying that is going on with all of us—does anybody believe that the intelligence community didn’t know that terrorist attempts were going to happen as the terrorists bought weapons and discussed the attempt in their house around the crib of their baby in San Bernardino?  I’m sure the Deep State knew.  And what about that loser in Orlando who shot up The Pulse nightclub with an obvious terrorist act?  The terrorist movements would have been witnessed from his phone position as he scouted out the location and discussed it with his wife—who tried to talk him out of it.   Yet the terrorist act wasn’t stopped—why?

All this intelligence gathering isn’t to keep us safe from terrorists—it is to keep the “deep state” safe from possible insurgents so that they can harass them before they become a real danger. It’s not to protect America—it’s to protect their shadow government.  So what Wikileaks did with the submission of an intelligence insider—likely a rogue Trump supporter is an act of patriotism.  That day outside of the Wikileaks headquarters, I thought seriously about bringing some food to Julian Assange who was trapped behind those curtains.  Without question, I’m sure they were inside there looking down on my head wondering what I was up to.  It was strange to be so close, yet so far away from a man at the center of modern history—but I wanted to respect his privacy as much as possible.  I just wanted to see the spot that was so important in shaping our modern world and really the only place standing up against these deep state insurgents around the world.  I am sure as hard as Donald Trump worked to become president, that without Wikileaks, the deep state would have won the election and we’d presently have Hillary Clinton as POTUS and likely there would be steps toward an armed civil war in America this early into 2017.  But because of Trump he’s fighting back from the Executive Branch and Wikileaks is providing the evidence that would otherwise be destroyed before it ever reached the public eye—and for that—we should all be extremely grateful.  Wikileaks has prevented open civil war in America—and that is an act of heroism.  Liberals who are now protesting Trump and his supporters have no idea how close they came to real violence—and perhaps might yet still see.  They better hope that Trump is successful.  The Deep State that watches me in the quiet hours of the morning understand why.  And there are millions just like me out in the plains of American sovereignty.  And the Deep State is afraid—as they should be.

The New Rebel Fashion: Joy Villa wears Donald Trump dress to the 2017 Grammy ceremony

It took a lot of guts for Joy Villa to show up at the Grammy’s dressed in this fabulous evening wear.  Talk about fashion.  I’m sure the faces of the liberal left of Hollywood melted off.  But hey, for years those American insurgents showed up at these award shows in Che shirts and celebrated Mao openly.  And at parties before the drugs and the orgies, they toasted to Fidel Castro.  So they have it coming—Donald Trump is the new rebel fashion and they have to face the fact that their sun has set and Trump is the new fashion for the rebellious creative types.  And they better get used to it.

TAMONTEN (多聞天): Protecting Betsy DeVos from the demons of public education

I was very embarrassed for the radical lunatics at the Washington D.C. public school that Betsy DeVos tried to visit on this date of February 10, 2017—because what they showed the world was that they could not be reasoned with.  Without any provocation on Betsy’s part, the radicals incited an incident proving that the only way to reform America’s schools was to destroy the grip the political left has on them.  There is no compromise, there is only war with those insurgents and their desire to corrupt the minds of our youth with their collectivist yearnings—much to the detriment of the United States and all things positive that flow from it.

The only image that comes to my mind when seeing the scenes of Betsy returning to her car with sign holding losers protecting the teachers unions within the public education system was of the Buddhist deity TAMONTEN 多聞天, the one who is all knowing, one who hears everything in the kingdom, one who is always listening, completely versed in Buddha’s teachings. Tamonten is said to be the most powerful of the four Shitennō, with the other three serving as his vassals. He was also said to be the richest of the Shitennō, for Tamonten was rewarded with great wealth after practicing austerities for 1,000 years.228

I met Tamonten formally on Mount Shosha in Japan.  Sure I had read many books about the formally Hindu deity who over time was incorporated into Japanese Buddhism.  But I did come face to face with him in the great wooden temple hall of Maniden far removed from the world.  You see, to reach Maniden you must go up a tremendous skylift from Himeji City many thousands of feet below.  Once atop Mount Shosha you have to either walk a reasonably great distance, or be bused to the foot of the temple entrance.  Even then, you must go up a great number of steps to even enter the vast temple. Once inside, you must go through the great hall and the many temple gifts hazed in color due to the many incense sticks burning there at all times to step into the prayer room where you come face to face with the four Shitennō who protect the Buddha from evil spirits.  Many of those Shitennō statues show them standing on the heads of the evil spirits who are attempting to corrupt the people of Japan and it was there that I felt like I was looking into a mirror when I saw the image of Tamonten.  Even though I was warned not to take pictures of the deities for fear that I might anger them—seriously—I took my iPhone 6 out and captured the image seen on this page.  I use that image as my wallpaper on my phone presently so that I can remember that day every day.  I liked Tamonten.  I understood Tamonten.  And it was obvious to me that we needed our own version of Tamonten in America.218

In a lot of ways Mount Shosha reminded me of the Great Smoky Mountains.  Geographically they were very similar.  The mountains were the same rounded type seen in America’s Appalachian Mountain chain, and of about the same height with the same deciduous trees only spread halfway around the world from each other.  If you changed out Tamonten for Jesus Christ and the typical hillbilly redneck with a shotgun in the back window of a pick-up truck for a 5’ 5” brownish looking person of about 120 pounds who rides a bicycle everywhere I’d say the two cultures were identical.  Their religions and remote temples saved them from the corruption of the city dweller that often possesses a neurosis that drives them toward statism to cure their intellectual depravity.  Tamonten’s job was to conquer those demons who possess those poor people who do lose their minds and surrender themselves to chaos.  The temples on top of Mount Shosha are there to allow visitors to leave the world of demons behind and to enter a world where heroes of thought and everlasting enlightenment reside perpetually—without fail.  And thus, you do not see idiots like those protesting Betsy DeVos in Japan thriving in the light of the day attached to our American institutions like leeches from an Amazonian rainforest—sucking up our tax money and draining the lifeblood of education from our children for their own enrichment. Figures like Tamonten exist in our mythologies because as humans we have a need to fight evil in all the forms it presents itself.  And that is why I like Tamonten and like to visit his image many times a day.  I can relate to such figures of majestic reputation. 249

I’m telling you dear reader that we are at war with the broken people from the political left and that the only way to end that war is to crush them out of existence.  There is no coexistence with them.  There will never be peace—because they chose not to live that way.  They must be crushed and we must celebrate that victory the way that Tamonten does in Japan—with our feet upon the crushed skulls of the demons who threaten our society joyously pronouncing our victory—without apology. 223

The violence and antagonism will get worse as Betsy DeVos implements her plans to expand school choice and free children from the chains of the tax supported teacher unions who have destroyed our public education system.  And when that violence happens we must think of Tamonten—and joyfully destroy the demons that control our public education system—because it’s the responsible thing to do.  A society that allows demons to possess their country cannot be righteous.  And a society to be whole must at least agree on the basic foundations of righteousness.  You can’t share breath with idiots like the DeVos protestors and expect a sane society just as Tomonten would never invite demons over to his home for cards and coffee.  He would only want to invite them over to their destruction—and nothing else.  And that is how we must look at these villains of public education who stand against Betsy DeVos. 229

The statue of Tomonten on Mount Shosha was just a symbol, but I did watch many people visit that shrine and pay tribute to the godly protectors of Buddha.  And you know what; they were nice people, everyone I met to and from Mount Shosha even down in the valley of Himeji City.  You know why?  Because the people of that Japanese city at least agreed on the basic premise of good and evil—and they had mechanisms of mythology to enrich their minds to be conditioned to recognizing those aspects in their living life.  And America needs its own versions of that.  Betsy DeVos needs to at least have her own Tomonten to aid her in fighting evil and I’m happy to oblige.  It’s fun fighting evil, and it’s my hope dear reader that you will join the crusade.  Because there is no getting along with demons—and the teachers unions of our public education system is filled with them.  We saw several of them today in Washington D.C.  And before the job is done, we’ll see a lot more.  That’s when we must put their heads beneath our feet and crush them, and to do so with big smiles on our faces for freeing the world of such a tyranny as those who currently possess our public education system.252

Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war…………………………because we are at war with the demons of public education.

Betsy DeVos Confirmed: Finally an evolution beyond the teacher’s unions

What’s better than the great Superbowl from last Sunday night, or that Trump won the presidency—or even a new Star Wars movie?  It was and is the confirmation by the senate of Betsy DeVos for the Secretary of Education under the Trump Administration.  You might recall dear reader that I started this blog site as a means to promote School Choice and other reforms to public education and in a lot of ways, Betsy DeVos is the end game goal for me.  Having her in place to take on the monopoly of the powerful teacher unions is a dream come true—so I am ecstatic.  And in a lot of ways, only someone like Betsy could even think of doing this job because she’s a billionaire herself and can afford to be ostracized from the public for the next decade, because that’s what’s going to happen as she implements reforms to public education.  But as my personal story shows, there is light at the end of the story and Betsy will come out of it fine even as the world around her crumbles down.  It’s the only way that a job of this magnitude can get done.  Here is just a preview from Fox News of the nature of the protests that will come from the teacher’s unions.

‏If her critics are to be believed, Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos is a danger to special education, could end public schooling and has plans that “will kill children.”

Think that’s hyperbole?

“That is not an exaggeration in any sense,” tweeted Vanity Fair film critic Richard Lawson, who fired off a series of tweets early Tuesday arguing that DeVos’ confirmation would be deadly for “queer and other at-risk kids” – because of DeVos’ support for voucher programs.

“Voucher programs will create systems in which queer kids have literally zero access to support apparatus bc they are in religious schools,” Lawson wrote. “Meaning voucher programs will lead to more suicides. Betsy DeVos’s policies will kill children.”

DeVos’ nomination is set for a noon vote in the Senate on Tuesday, and, despite the defection of two Republican senators, she’s likely to be confirmed – though by the slimmest of margins. Vice President Mike Pence is expected to cast the deciding vote in his role as president of the Senate.

But critics like Lawson have gone into overdrive in a bid to convince just one more senator to oppose the school choice advocate.

Democrats kept the Senate in session all night into Tuesday morning protesting the DeVos nomination on the floor. “The president’s decision to ask Betsy DeVos to run the Department of Education should offend every single American man, woman, and child who has benefitted from the public education system in this country,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement.

Schumer’s warning paled in comparison to some of the vitriol aimed at DeVos from the media.

“Betsy DeVos is the worst person to be around schoolbooks since Lee Harvey Oswald,” Bill Maher snarked on his “Real Time” show.

The New Republic urged readers not to “normalize Betsy Devos. Her views are simply much too dangerous.”

The things that excite me most in life are books and ideas—especially outside the box type stuff. When I step into a bookstore or anywhere there are large collections of books I see the various ideas and opinions of the human race hard at work.  I also like children because when they are little they don’t know that things are impossible—so they learn more from age 1 to 5 than they will at any point in their lives, and that is exciting to me.  It always has been.  I like smart people, I personally enjoy using extensive vocabulary when speaking because being smart is fun, and is a privilege specific to the human condition.  So education is probably more important to me than it is most people.   But my idea of education is far different than the typical teacher union member or politician who takes money from their mobster-like organization.

When I was in school I hated it. I hated every day of every hour of it.  I never liked one single year of it and was happier than I should have been to graduate from high school.  I went to college because people told me I should—but I hated it worse.  I felt the people around me were stupid and were not aiming to improve themselves in any regard—and that was the culture established by all public education from top to bottom under the flag of the Department of Education.  Much of what I have learned in life I did on my own by reading books and pushing life to its limits outside of school.  If I didn’t have to go to a public school, I would have likely done much more than I have which for a lot of people is incomprehensible.  But that was my experience.

When it came time to send my own kids to school I didn’t like it. In fact, you could say I hated it.  But I worked with my kids and taught them a lot.  I’d say they learned more from me than they did all their teachers and friends in public school because I made our time together work and filled them with ideas that I had learned from the many books I had read and thought about.  It was never that I hated education—it was that our American style of public education didn’t come anywhere near where I thought it should and it was making bright eyed nice kids into blithering idiots with each year of public school.  My kids were homeschooled for a while and actually graduated a year early.  Each of them spent their 18th years in Europe while their classmates were still planning how to get drunk on their graduation nights.  Both of my children today are exceptional in their abilities and headed toward very good things—one is a professional photographer that many think is the best in Cincinnati—the other is a magnificent illustrator on her way to many open doors which are now in sight and I can say that there wasn’t anything that public school or college did to make them that way.  It was a combination of great parenting and their own natural inclinations that were not turned off by their mom and me.  In fact we nurtured that aspect of their character and now that they are adults—it’s obvious, they are great people in every way.

So it came as some surprise that having raised two exceptional kids into adulthood that I offered my wisdom to other kids who I wanted to help grow up and become better adults. Because as I looked around there were so many stupid people walking around miserable that I felt compelled to help them.  That led me to challenge the public education system which of course unleashed the teacher’s union against me—which in 2010 EVERYONE was afraid of.  Having a history of taking on bullies I decided to fight back at them and I committed myself to that task and have been doing that for a number of years now.  My thinking was that my reputation was such that I didn’t have to worry about the teacher’s union harming me.  When they tried to attack me for being a back-woods hillbilly—the image didn’t stick because people who knew me understood that certainly wasn’t the kind of person I was.  And when they tried violence—well that didn’t work either—because after all—I’m a master bullwhip handler.  What were a bunch of teacher union radicals going to do to me?  So I had them beat both ways and have spent the last 7 years taking them on—sometime quite spectacularly.  I did many of the things Donald Trump is doing now well before anybody had seen it before—and the tactics worked—as I always expected them to.

I remember a trip I took to Disney World in 2013 when WLW called me after Sharon Poe had just been on the air talking about education problems. I was about to go into Hollywood Studios and was speaking to the producer in the parking lot over the phone.  The teacher’s union for Mason and Lakota had been getting bold again and Sharon had warned them over WLW’s airwaves that Rich Hoffman would have something to say about it—which went out to over 500,000 people that morning.  WLW called me for a comment for which I told their news department that if they (teacher’s unions) stuck their heads above the sand that I would crush them in Butler County.  If they tried to strike, I’d come after them.  If they didn’t stop pushing school levies to justify their step increases, I’d come after them.  If they did anything to create a new levy in Lakota or Mason, I’d work with Sharon Poe to fight them to the point they could never show themselves.  That’s when the producer asked me if I wanted to come on and talk about it on the radio and I told them it was up to them.  But that I would likely cause them to hit the mute button a lot discussing how those fat assed bitches who were simply latté sipping prostitutes with diamond rings the size of car tires and asses to match were bringing great harm to the future of our civilization by destroying our children’s minds in exchange for a fat communist inspired paycheck and that they were detrimental to the public education process.  I was about to go into Disney World after all with my family and I had said all this stuff before.  But WLW wondered if I had mellowed out a bit over the years so they could reignite the issue.  They declined to put me on which I was fine with.  I felt I had said everything I could on the issue and wasn’t in the mood to play nice with the school boards and the unions that controlled them.  I knew that only through elections could we hope to see the kind of next step corrections that were needed.

A few years later Trump threw his hat in the ring so I jumped on board because he was the next step I had been looking for—someone who would take all these regional fights we had been having to the next level. Trump of course won then did just what many of use reformers expected him to do—nominate someone like Bessy DeVos to the Department of Education.  She was the end game I had been fighting for and now we can look forward to seeing all the school reforms that people like me had been striving for in an effort to save children from the stupidity of a public education system ran by the teacher unions.

All the things that the teacher unions are now saying about Betsy DeVos are things I have personally heard about myself—but we now know how to break their backs. I’ve done it and the blueprint is now there for everyone to study within these pages—which many in power today have read and modified to their own effect.  I couldn’t be more proud to see Mike Pence cast that deciding vote in the Senate for Betsy DeVos.  It is the greatest news I’ve heard in a long time and gives me great hope that future children—such as my own grandchildren, might finally get a public education experience that does not seek to make them into stupid people—but into thoughtful adults who can carry our civilization into new heights of expectation.  Now good things can finally happen in public education and the unions won’t be able to stop it—and that is what’s good for kids.  Children have a better chance of playing in the street of a freeway in Los Angeles and surviving unharmed than they do in surviving public education with intact minds if the parents at home are not engaged.  And now, we can have a little hope that the danger of that reality will change for children once and for all.

Breaking the Neck of Liberal Peacocks: Saving the world from the Democratic Party and the insanity of their philosophy

One of the primary reasons I write on this blog is to help people frame the dilemma that befalls us as a human civilization—primarily this form of lunacy called “liberal politics” which is a condition of failed philosophy perpetrated by second-handers over many centuries in an effort to feel equal to those who have natural inclinations toward production—producing good children, good marriages, good businesses, (otherwise—good healthy lives.) Liberals are broken people who can barely manage getting out of bed in the morning let alone running anybody else’s life, yet as politicians that is precisely their proposal.  So they engage in all kinds of noisy tactics to fluff out their feathers and appear to be many things they are not.  As liberals recently came out in the masses to protests President Trump on his immigration policies—and other things—many conservatives who are quite intelligent asked me—“do you think they have a point”—or “do you think this will change the way Trump does things?”  My answer to all of them, which I’ll write down here for you dear reader to read, is that liberals are like colorful peacocks—much like the old NBC logo—they fan out their feathers to look large and complicated with their color texturing—but actually they are just scrawny birds with thin necks that are remarkably easy to break.  They hiss and make scary noises which looks and sounds foreboding until you discover that everything about them is a ruse—and that they are very easy to destroy.  So no—what they are doing will have no impact on Donald Trump because he understands what those liberal peacocks really are—just skinny birds easy to turn into dinner.   But often I need to write these situations out so normal people can see beyond the feathers to the skinny and lightweight structure which typically makes up the philosophic liberal and the disease of their existence.

There is word that Barack Obama is considering ways to speak out against Donald Trump as a former president and current head of the broken Democratic Party as a way to rally his troops of peacocks so to preserve their progressive gains made over the decades by being the squeakiest wheel in the room fluffing their feathers at every cause and scaring conservatives by hissing at them over every movement. Conservatives have politely yielded to these liberals out of respect and by taking them at their word because typically, conservatives are driven toward goodness and honesty so have no reason not to believe a peacock is anything short of a menace—because the liberal projects itself as such.  But Trump is another matter for these liberals and they really don’t know how to approach him—because Trump is willing to do something most conservatives aren’t—and that is to push aside the feathers and break the neck of the bird quickly—at the slightest provocation—and that has exposed the liberal left of their most serious weapon.

I thought heavily on these matters as I watched the protests against Donald Trump over the last couple of weeks as the Cincinnati media unleashed hell on a personal friend of mine, Bruce Jones who happens to be the fiscal officer of West Chester, Ohio. The tactics were exactly the same and were being done for the same reasons.  Trump was used to it, Bruce wasn’t and I understand personally how much of an impact liberals can have when they start calling you names that are clearly not reflective of the way conservatives typically live life.  So I write here to provide a sanity guidepost against the obvious tactics of the liberal peacocks out there who attempt to do so much damage just so they can maintain a seat at the tables of political power.  But those days are coming to a close for them and its time that as conservatives we stop putting up with them and just get through those fluffing feathers to break their metaphorical necks and be done with them—because there is no co-existence with their failed philosophies.  It is their task to adapt to the world as it is—not to bend it to their limited skill sets and world outlook.  We must do what we do—especially when the liberal left has openly attacked Donald Trump and good people like Bruce Jones essentially for the strategy of shutting them up and forcing them into a retreat.

The dilemma that Barack Obama and his followers of lost Democrats is that they fear by addressing Trump that directly that they will “normalize him” which sounds very similar to a tactic I saw used against me about five years ago when I was in the middle of the Lakota levy fights with the radical teacher’s union who used all these tactics on me hoping to change my behavior. It might be recalled that I was on the radio all the time, on television and in the newspapers every other week.  After all I was just getting this blog site started so I needed the press to build an audience—so I did all the media that came up as an opportunity.  And it worked very well frustrating the liberal peacocks of our community.  Yet, much like Trump does now, and I am proud of this looking back because I was the first to do it that I know of, I fought them.  And soon I didn’t need the media at all—because I made my own media and it had all the impact I could have ever desired.  I became my own Citizen Kane in the media making and breaking political topics with the natural gift I have of boundless words and infinite vocabulary.  And that’s when the political left had to say “uncle” and start working properly in our community.  The name calling didn’t help them then and it certainly won’t help them against Trump on a much larger stage.  The political left is done for.

You might remember the often quoted Scott Sloan interview that I did on WLW around the time that the women of West Chester came after me the way they have been Bruce Jones of late—and the story wasn’t a local one—it made the news of the entire media market of Cincinnati—so it was an attempt to “de-normalize” me in the eyes of the public using the media as a weapon—much like they are trying to do with Trump now—only Trump knows more about the media than the media knows about itself so it will never work. Anyway, Sloan asked me on the air if I thought I was hurting my cause by fighting fire with fire which brought me down off some conservative level and into the mud with my political enemies.  As he spoke I thought about who was asking the question.  Scott Sloan is a marijuana supporter who occasionally enjoys that product of stupidity.  He’s also a pussy-whipped conquered man who feels he must appease female sensibilities within the context of his marriage in exchange for sex—which a lot of men fall into that trap, the “yes dear syndrome.” That in itself isn’t bad—but it does reveal a lot about the person who falls into such traps—because that’s not what women want as much as they publicly proclaim otherwise.  So here was a person giving me advice on how to position my argument when I don’t have any such failures in my life.  Of course, I politely let him talk—because it was his radio show, and I typically don’t beat people into the ground just for having different opinions than I do.  But behind what he was saying was that old progressive stance of conservatives yielding to liberals on every occasion because somehow it was beneath conservatives to engage in mudslinging.  Yet liberals had no such restriction.  To my rational, which is even more persistent today than it was way back then—if a peacock comes over and bites you—you break its neck and eat it.  It’s that simple.  That was what I was doing to the Lakota levy supporters and what I’ve preached for decades—including on that WLW show with Scott Sloan.

Several years later Scott Sloan had on Donald Trump just before the election and the WLW host was certainly not a supporter—he obviously leaned toward Hillary Clinton. People like that radio host who are essentially beaten people by their wives, and who do not have the inner resolve to live a life free of drugs and opinions of conviction found Donald Trump repulsive—so the radio host took little shots at the future president in much the way he did against me.  And it is those kind of people who take collective stances against Trump marching around like idiots hoping that the squeaky wheel that is loudest will get the grease of politics—because it’s always worked before and it’s the only play they have in their liberal playbook.  The same liberal pile-on occurred when Bruce Jones—who is typically a man’s man—not that he hates women or anything—but he’s certainly a man of testosterone and masculinity who reacts with objection when he sees something obviously wrong.  So none of this is new.

My advice is the same as it’s always been, but now we have more evidence to confirm the validity. There is no reasoning with liberals.  There is no co-existence with them because their philosophy in life is just so wrong for the American way of living that has established the rules of our country.  When the peacocks fluff out their feathers and hiss at us, we just have to reach in and break their metaphorical necks—and just put an end to them.  We can’t let them run our government with chants of hate and disinformation built around emotional fears and a hatred of masculinity—even from those who think of themselves as men.  Chuck Schumer is a fine example of this—what man stands in front of a bunch of people and cries over immigration?  Nobody—at least who think of themselves as men.  Women are allowed to cry over such things socially—men aren’t and those are rules our society has designated for centuries regarding the conduct of the sexes with each other.  But we can no longer allow liberals to define the insanity of other definitions built purely on emotional fragility.  And liberals have to learn the hard lesson—that they are the defeated party and that they either have to adapt, or they will be overcome.  It isn’t our task as conservatives to make them feel good, or to give them a seat at the table.  And if they come up and bite us with their feathers fluffed out—it is our responsibility (metaphorically) to break their necks and put an end to their diatribes for the sake of humanity.  Nothing liberals have to say is worth the vibrations of wind that carry the noise that projects from those throats.  Save the world by putting an end to it—forever.

Rise of the Overman: What makes Donald Trump and how to understand “leadership”

To explain a baffling modern quagmire that seems to  be befuddling most of the world currently we must revert back to a little understood concept about human brain activity and how it learns, to begin to comprehend how an overman has entered the American White House and what impact that will have on future generations.  Notice that the name of this site is Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom—so I obviously lay claim to knowing something about these types of topics—and I actually do, which I practice each day and runs contrary to what many people have learned over 50 to 60 years of their lives combining advanced education exposure to those many years of experience.  They are often befuddled by my concepts of leadership which I developed instinctively, but were later confirmed to me quite scholarly by the fine book by Robert Persig Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance involving the theory of the Metaphysics of Quality.  For more on those definitions CLICK HERE.  But in regard to the present topic of what is happening in the world now that Trump is in the White House read on.

Leadership is not something that can be taught in an academic institution correctly.  When I think of leadership probably the best way to watch it develop was at an old Boy Scout activity I was involved in many years ago called C.O.P.E (challenging outdoor physical experience.)  Today there are leadership conferences that do similar things but for me that was the best I’ve been exposed to because it capped off an unusual childhood that I had around the age of 14 years of age and launched me into my teenage years decades ahead of my peers, it is worth noting here.  At C.O.P.E, myself and several other young people, guys and girls, were invited to participate in what constituted a series of obstacle courses where we had to find a way to utilize teamwork to navigate—like climbing a tall wall without a ladder or backward falling into the arms of other participants from a tall platform forcing us to trust other people—that kind of thing.  But what was intended to be an exercise in developing teamwork under difficult circumstances over an entire weekend in the pouring March rain of Southern Ohio turned out to be a confirmation of the uniqueness of leadership and how it is instilled—or not—in a young mind.

As the weekend progressed I was always the one who led the activities by default and solved the most difficult problems while naturally making other people invest of themselves in the process to feel like they contributed.  And the reason they listened to me—while some of the people were two years older was because I took away the guilt of their lack of leadership—but nurtured their natural inclination to do a good job which was unique to their experience and by the end of the weekend I had all the participants ready to run themselves through a brick wall by my simple request which amazed the event organizers.  My participation caught the eye of the Dan Beard Council Leadership Committee and within a few months I was running for president and had won.  But that lasted exactly one day because a kid was murdered at my school and I was blamed for it—which had some roots in reality.  Politically the Dan Beard Council couldn’t have me at the top of their organization with my name associated with dead kids assassinated by my own personal army of youth dedicated to preserving my name—which was how the newspapers framed the incident. From there I spent the next five years using my unusual leadership ability to wreak havoc among those who dared to know me and at a very young age I had Sharonville judges and the criminal underground listening to me the way the Dan Beard Council had before.  Always there were people willing to associate with the strong and I understood it from a very young age and learned not to abuse it for the benefit of whatever objective needed to be done.

I have since used that ability to do lots of things that people think are impossible which continues to this day.  In my book we are still in the early chapters but it is important to understand that in regard to leadership there is a science to it that is quite obvious.  Those who follow leaders are one type of people and those who naturally take charge of things around them without giving it a second thought are another.  Leadership skills are the most sought after attributes that the world desires.  People around the world value leadership traits in people more than gold and will literally pay anything to be near such people.  As a result of my experiences I live a bit like a hermit keeping my distance because in the past as I was tweaking my own ability I found that the byproduct to people in my wake led to literal insanity, drug addiction, and lots of death because leadership for most people is the strongest kind of drug and people who don’t have that trait desire to be near it often to their own destruction.  So I am very careful with my skills in this area.

Some of what makes young people into leaders is heredity but I am convinced that I could train any young person to be a good natural leader if certain things happened to them during their most conscious years from two years of age until about age 8 or 9. By then the natural inclinations of existence are set and the brain does what it has been programmed to do in the human vessel possessing it—male or female.  And the key ingredient to creating such a person is to not allow their spirit to be conquered in any way during this delicate period.  Babies are amazingly selfish creatures so rather than teaching young people to think of others so early out of the gate, children should be encouraged to continue developing their ability to manipulate the world around them well into those delicate years so that it becomes a natural function of their communication.  By doing this, and not spanking a child for a lack of obedience but instead reasoning with them like they are grown adults forcing them to arise to whatever occasion is being discussed, then their minds will naturally evolve toward leadership ability.  But the key is in not letting their mind, spirit, or body be crushed within their first decade of existence and allowing their ID to come to a nice boil on its own.

Our traditional way of raising children is the opposite, we teach obedience right out of the gate and within a few years our children are nice little dogs who sit, speak, and beg for food like a common household pet.  Then we are surprised when they grow up into adults who follow around other people always looking for someone to give them food or tell them to speak—and this is most of our present society.  Obviously Donald Trump was raised in a way where his personal integrity was encouraged and nurtured—which shows.   He is a completely unconquered human being who has never felt the sting of an ass kicking—which is a great thing for the formation of leadership.  When someone looks at another person and thinks—“they need their ass kicked,” or “they think their shit doesn’t stink,” what they are really saying is that they think such people need to be destroyed so that they can have the illusion of  equality as defined by modern society.  But it is precisely the lack of those elements in a child’s life that make them into great leaders later on.  That’s not to say that young people shouldn’t be challenged with great rigor. But it doesn’t mean that whatever is done to the young mind—they should never have their egos crushed by those in position to do so.  An older person should never crush the mind of a younger person just to satisfy the older person’s desire to be in command of another human being.  And leaders should never abuse their relationship with other human beings to satisfy some inner ego boost to their authority.  If leaders are raised correctly, they won’t feel a need for such things.

So in regard to Donald Trump, he clearly has this natural leadership ability and what makes him most unusual is that he has arrived this far in his life as an unconquered person.  That makes him an overman—a more than human participant in the affairs of the world.  If the average experience of a human being is a combination of submission and altruistic compassion—then the overman is one who lives beyond those measures.  What they do my involve compassion and other respectable observations of the human condition the way a human being might not deliberately trample through a flower garden just to destroy the nicely blooming plants that reside there—but there are added layers of value that only a leader at the front of the decision-making Metaphysics of Quality can comprehend.  That much was obvious from the first week of the Donald Trump presidency culminating in the personal White House meeting with Theresa May.  These meetings with world leaders are easy for Trump because he possesses a natural leadership trait that even those who have similar qualities admire and he uses that for the benefit of all.  Trump has learned over the years to use his ability for good and has mastered it late in life obviously under the careful understanding of a good wife who knows when to yield to it, and when to guide it with her own unique gifts which has made Donald Trump into something very special.  But it’s not what he says that makes him great—it’s what he doesn’t say, or do.

Donald Trump obviously was raised correctly.  His natural leadership was forged with good parenting, obvious genetic gifts intellectually, but carefully nurtured by parents who knew how to be demanding of their children without destroying them in the process by breaking them too early in life.  Donald Trump’s older brother obviously didn’t make it and became a self-destructive person leading to his early death.  But Donald Trump got it early on—and even though he was pushed hard in everything he ever did—he was never deliberately robbed of his natural leadership ability and crushed as a youth with an ass kicking, or an embarrassing public ridicule for which he would never recover.  And what he grew into was something unique and special.  But other young people could grow into the same if only we changed the way we parented children and taught them in schools.  Yet before we do that we have to make a conscious effort as a society to be more than human, and to yearn to be overman in our own way—for the benefit of all the world—by first bending the world to our ID and letting that creative process become something beautiful instead of resented.
