The World War Against Donald Trump: What we can learn from Ferris Bueller

It is quite stunning that more people don’t understand what Donald Trump is to the Republican nomination for President of the United States.  Some of what I am about to say will require some additional information and review, so CLICK HERE for the start of that understanding, as well as all of the following hotlinks for further substantiation.  The typical run for POTUS has established in the American electorate certain memorized hot points largely shaped by the media and the political class to always protect themselves from outside insurgents.  Was I concerned that Donald Trump didn’t know the three primary functions of government with an answer “security, security, security” then further created a problem for himself by declaring that healthcare and education were the next priorities?  No, I wasn’t.  He gave a typical response of the everyday American who really hasn’t been a part of the political establishment—and has thrown money at politicians his whole life to purchase what he needs to get done to ensure his success.  He gave a slightly better answer than the average businessman hanging out on a golf course.  Does that make him out-of-touch?  To people who spend their whole lives studying constitutional law, worshipping the integrity of past presidents like a king, and insisting on having a POTUS that rivals some European royalty—Donald Trump is a nightmare of bumbling irrational statements.  But what I see is a down to earth guy who gets most of his information about the world the way the average cab driver does—and he’s clearly grounded—remarkably, untouched by pretension by being a “political insider.” To me, the weaknesses he is coming under fire for are his strengths. I want to see someone totally different in the POTUS role—and I want private sector influence instead of political experience. I want competent people managing the government, not a political class.

What Trump has that nobody else does is the ability to hire better people than him for a job, which is how he’s made most of his money.  He has raw instincts about people who gives him tremendous leverage over someone like Ted Cruz.  Cruz would be someone who Trump would hire for a staff position, but Cruz would never be in a position to identify and establish a similar criterion.  Trump hires people, listens to them, and then formulates his objectives—so he doesn’t need to know all the details. He pays other people to do that.  His job at the front of the train is to make important decisions at the proper time with the courage to actually do it.  The current political order is stuck in a “static pattern” of what is considered normal behavior whereas Trump is mostly a “dynamic influence.”  His very presence is changing the entire way that politics is run and those profiting off that “static pattern” are justifiably terrified of it—so they are throwing everything they have at Trump trying to drag him into their “static pattern” value system.  Those static patterns consist of very rigid party guidelines on both sides—for Republicans, a calculated approach to abortion, a party established position on Israel, taxation, and healthcare.  Essentially, the beliefs of the typical Republican candidate are formulated by the party instead of the actual beliefs of the candidate.  Trump jumps into things, tests the water, listens to people then figures out what will work without thinking about any group affiliation.  He is not prone to group assimilation which makes him far superior to any other offering.

The political establishment expects its presidential candidates to adopt a “static” position that they can then build a party around.  Trump is so “dynamic” that things could change in a moment’s notice.  Anybody who has witnessed any success in their life understands that one of the biggest attributes of success is a dynamic presence that can adapt quickly to changing circumstances and formulate them toward the original objectives.  Politicians often can recite all the party positions but are statically welded to Capitol Hill politics and can seldom ever do anything that they promised on a campaign trail.  So Trump figures, why waste time on things that might change completely within a year from now.  It’s a pointless exercise.  He knows what we need to do, and he has a track record of success—and he will find the right combination of resources to implement it.  Genius can’t yet be plotted on a chart and no college has figured out how to teach it—so Donald Trump is something completely outside of their static understanding.  That certainly isn’t his fault—it is the failure of the static system that we have all become addicted to.

That static system now to protect itself is looking at the statistics and noticing that there are a lot of people lacking a college degree that support Donald Trump and those same stats are not prevalent with other candidates.    College trained people have a tendency to support static patterns because after four critical years in college learning what those patterns are right after high school, from the ages of 18 to 22—the final nail in the coffin for a lot of people is placed toward all future dynamic influences.  I have been to college, my wife has to—I even spent a few years living on a college campus—and let me tell you dear reader, I hated it—because I am by nature a very dynamic personality.  I relate to Trump because of that dynamism.  To put it in terms that average people can understand think of the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which is a popular 80s film featuring Mathew Broderick, that most everyone understands.  Ferris was an example of an extremely “dynamic” personality and he would likely grow up to become like a real life Donald Trump if he were allowed to be free enough to survive the static systems  that imposed its will upon him.  When I was a teenager, I was very much like the character of Ferris Bueller in that movie and I did impulsive things like he did all the time—and I always managed to come out on top no matter how dire the situation.  People loved and hated Ferris Bueller for all the reasons that they love and hate Donald Trump.  He doesn’t always know how or why something will work, Trump simply wakes up in the morning meaning to achieve success in whatever it is and he uses his dynamic personality to overtake whatever static imposition is in front of him.

So the reason that the people who lack college degrees—or those who live in rural areas support Trump is because they have not been conquered yet by the static pattern progressivism that has been imposed on college graduates and the urban settings which often force people to concede their natural desire for individual integrity.  Nothing about Trump fits well into a debate format or the media driven talking points.  He is best when he is clashing with static patterns with great dynamic authority and bravado.  Trump has slipped a bit lately in the polling because he was trying to fit his personality to the static pattern of the Republican Party—as the head of it.  He backed off the thrusters to show that he can be more “conciliatory.” But he shouldn’t, he needs to just do his thing and stay as dynamic and unpredictable as possible.  If Cruz wants a debate, Trump should accept the challenge but to demand that it be done on ground he controls, such as Trump Tower’s lobby in New York.  That way Cruz couldn’t say that Trump is chicken when in fact all Trump is concerned with is being pulled into the senseless static pattern of Cruz and the Republican Party which has actually given us all these problems. Cruz is a great debater, but his key weakness is that if he can be taken off his “Holy Roller” persona and beaten into submission with sheer force—especially in the surroundings of a person who has had actual success in life–Cruz could be embarrassed beyond recovery.  The press conference with Carly and Cruz over the sex scandal showed a major weakness in the Cruz façade which will be exploited sooner or later.

But the trouble between Trump and everyone else is not that the billionaire is “stupid” or his supporters.  It’s just that we know that Trump is a needed injection of dynamic persona that is desperately needed in our political system.  Just as I’m hoping that Warren Davidson, my new congressman holds to his values when he gets to Capitol Hill, I have watched all this before and am always disappointed by the results.  I stood shoulder to shoulder as a major supporter of Rob Portman when he ran for office.   I knew him as a normal guy that would go out to eat with me after a debate.  He blew it after years in Washington.  And John Kasich went from a Tea Party darling to a softer version of Hillary Clinton.  He is a major letdown.  Actually, I could go on and on for quite some time naming politicians just like Ted Cruz that showed lots of promise when they were running—memorized all the things that the media wanted to hear, then turned around and was just a terrible representative.  I don’t so much blame them as people—I blame the static nature of politics.  It needs a major infusion of dynamism to change it forever.

Now that Trump has shown what’s possible, every celebrity who thinks they can will try running for president in the future.  The party system is essentially over—and that is a good thing.  Within the decade we will likely get stars like The Rock running for president and major rap artists who have the money and celebrity to gain media attraction on a daily basis.  Four years ago Mitt Romney wouldn’t hardly go on any talk radio shows or cable shows—not even Bill O’Reilly—because he feared being knocked off message.  He certainly wouldn’t do Chris Mathews—who is a flaming progressive.  The whole abortion topic is something Romney and every other presidential candidate for the republicans would have avoided with diversionary tactics.  Trump has forced all these candidates to do these shows to compete—because he is so confident himself—even when he steps in it—that he can find a way to come out smelling wonderful.  That is why all these static pattern addicts hate Trump so much, but also why he has such strong support from an electorate that recognizes that the static system of politics that has nearly destroyed our country needs a major infusion of dynamic influence.  Now that the dynamic influence has wrecked the previous static patterns—for both parties really—there is no going back.  The Republicans either embrace Trump or they will get worse in 2020 and 2024.  Celebrity will be the new criteria for better or worse.

The old methods of electing a POTUS have not been effective and America needs to develop something dynamically different.  I’m not looking for a George Washington to lead me to some salvation.  I don’t need an authority figure of any kind.  All I need out of government is to manage the resources it takes to keep the country running and to stay the hell out of my way.  I don’t need the government for much.  I don’t even need their protection.  Them standing between me and villains likely makes for a more civil society—which is good for most people, but I personally don’t need them—and I certainly don’t need a “leader.”  I want a more dynamic government that isn’t afraid to sell capitalism to the world.  Trump is the best candidate I have ever seen or heard of for that very dynamic job. Like Ferris Bueller, I know that Trump can wing his way through anything—and I want someone representing our Republic to the world who has that ability for a change.  And I certainly don’t want a political party in charge behind the scenes.  I’m ready for a major change, and for me Trump is it.  Whether he makes it or not, politics is changed forever.  So Republicans if they want to survive might as well embrace it.  Failure to do so or to stick to the old static patterns will lead to their self-destruction.

Ann Becker’s Stand Against Ohio’s Central Committee: How John Kasich became an idiot–understanding Kantian philosophy

I remember doing a radio show several years ago with Matt Clark about how communists planned to take over both political parties in America and how they were going to infiltrate the media as far back as the late 1950s.  Obviously we have seen that happen in regard to the Democrats and the major media sources.  They call them progressives, but essentially they are communist leaning sympathizers by the nature of their philosophy.  But Matt and I also talked about the same thing happening to the Republican Party.  To many of us, the behavior of the GOP since as far back as 9-11 caused questioning minds to scratch their heads in bewilderment.  When John McCain lashed out at Bill Cunningham for being “divisive” during a campaign stop in Cincinnati during 2008 for which the WLW host was the emcee further preponderance of the evidence was presented.  These Republicans were not conservatives—but rather were something else and their strategic aims were much more centrist in their nature.  That by itself would not be alarming, but they seemed to be working with Democrats to pull that central position over time radically to the left.  Today’s “centrist” used to be yesterday’s socialist and yesterdays neutral supporter along the political spectrum is now openly communist—(progressive).  I dare one person to describe to me how progressivism differs from the communists of the Bolshevik Revolution in 1919.  (I’m waiting.)

Obviously I have known about this for a long time to even be able to talk about it in hindsight on Matt Clark’s show.  CLICK HERE TO REVIEW.  But the rest of the country really hasn’t noticed because of all the noise of modern society.  The evidence gets drowned out by the furious pace of our lives.  A lot of times the participants themselves don’t even realize the role they play—because they don’t know enough about history to understand.  One such example is the governor of my state John Kasich, who started off wonderfully six years ago, but is now an openly progressive loser who has evoked “god” as an excuse for expanding government reach and balancing the Ohio budget with more federal money through Obamacare exchanges.  If you want to know how deep this corruption has spread then look at the radicalism of the Ohio State Central Committee in supporting Kasich for the upcoming primaries when it is clearly evident that he doesn’t stand a chance at winning the popular vote.  Like trained drones the Ohio State Central Committee is sticking by the plan hashed out long ago—that Kasich the “moderate” would be elected president making it easy for the radical leftists to run over our nation without resistance.  Even though polling of prospective primary voters favor Trump and Cruz, the State Central Committee is doing what they planned all along.  They don’t listen to voters, they listen to the party bosses as to how and who to elect—and that plan was never in the favor of the American population.

This little trick is never talked about literally.  Every State Central Committee person is not part of some vast conspiracy—not knowingly.  It wasn’t that long ago that people like my friend Ann Becker from the Cincinnati Tea Party encouraged me to run for a Central Committee spot in my district.  Ann and her people are doing the good work of knocking moderate leftists out of the Central Committee to put more reasonable traditionalists on in their place.  To my eyes the functioning philosophy of the whole enterprise was noticeably Kantian and I knew that the basic philosophy for which they were functioning had to be changed before truly effective management of the Central Committee system could fully be implemented.  However, that doesn’t stop the good work of people inclined to suffer the daily abuse it takes to make micro changes along the way from doing so.  My role in all this has to be “different” so we all do what we are best at.  Ann is one of those people who likes to fight it out on the inside and she issued the following statement in regard to John Kasich.

I heard you! You do not support Governor Kasich for President – even if the Ohio GOP State Central Committee does. 


You reenergized my faith in the Constitutional people of Ohio! Yesterday I sent out an email about the Ohio Republican State Central Committee’s endorsement of Governor Kasich. An endorsement by a party means the members of that party are expected to support the candidate.


I received over 200 emails in two hours yesterday telling me ‘Hell No.’ The stories about Governor Kasich and the disdain for the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee’s endorsement of Kasich was incredible. I could feel the anger coming out of my computer. 


Governor Kasich says he balanced Ohio’s budget – all Governors have to balance Ohio’s budget, it’s in the Ohio Constitution. He says he created jobs in Ohio – his term started after the crash in 2008. Yes, there were more jobs created in Ohio after 2008 but was it Kasich that created the jobs or the free market starting to improve? He takes credit for the jobs that our small business owners work hard and create – you didn’t build that Governor Kasich. 


Governor Kasich’s support of Common Core, his expanding Medicaid using Obamacare, his increase of spending in Ohio by 30%, his standing in the way of Right to Work, his raising taxes – all of these things and more are reasons that he is not the best choice for President.


I think we all agree that we want a President that will stand by the Constitution and give America a plan to move this country forward, not backward, toward freedom. Whoever that candidate is for you, vote for him or her. No one has the right to expect you to vote a certain way, party or not.


We want political parties that stand on principle, not on who they can get elected. Shame on the State Central Committee. They are up for reelection this March; we must watch those races. 


Your mission over the next eight weeks is to make sure everyone you know is ready to vote on March 15, or early vote at your county Board of Elections, starting February 17th. This is the most important primary in the history of the United States of America. Everyone who cares about the future of this country needs to get out and vote!


One of the biggest issues I heard about regarding Governor Kasich was his support of Common Core. I really thought he would flip-flop on this by now, but he is standing strong with Common Core. 


A horrible choice for our kids and Ohio Governor Kasich!


I had the privilege of hearing Heidi Huber give an update on Common Core last night. The video is below. We must stand together to make the change we want to see. 

Heidi Huber Common Core Update

 

Yours in Liberty,

Ann Becker

Kasich has been a disaster.  New York pundits like Bill O’Reilly on Fox News think that Kasich has done a fantastic job as governor.  But that’s because Kasich used to host his show and that Bill doesn’t live in Ohio.  Also, compared to New York, Ohio seems like a bastion of conservatism.  To Bill’s eyes, I’m sure Kasich looks like a conservative, but that’s only because the noise of modern politics drowns out the truth.    Kasich is broken at the level of his foundation philosophies.  He and the establishment types in the GOP have been taught to think incorrectly and now they are leading the party toward aims that were always intended to be noticeably communist.  Here is the evidence, first a definition of Kantian ethics followed by a nice little quote from the blogspot “Marxist Update.”

Kantian ethics refers to a deontological ethical theory ascribed to the German philosopher Immanuel Kant. The theory, developed as a result of Enlightenment rationalism, is based on the view that the only intrinsically good thing is a good will; an action can only be good if its maxim – the principle behind it – is duty to the moral law. Central to Kant’s construction of the moral law is the categorical imperative, which acts on all people, regardless of their interests or desires. Kant formulated the categorical imperative in various ways. His principle of universalisability requires that, for an action to be permissible, it must be possible to apply it to all people without a contradiction occurring. His formulation of humanity as an end in itself requires that humans are never treated merely as a means to an end, but always also as ends in themselves. The formulation of autonomy concludes that rational agents are bound to the moral law by their own will, while Kant’s concept of the Kingdom of Ends requires that people act as if the principles of their actions establish a law for a hypothetical kingdom. Kant also distinguished between perfect and imperfect duties. A perfect duty, such as the duty not to lie, always holds true; an imperfect duty, such as the duty to give to charity, can be made flexible and applied in particular time and place.  (Sound like Kasich?)

In political philosophy, Kant has had wide and increasing influence with the major political philosopher of the late twentieth century, John Rawls, drawing heavily on his inspiration in setting out the basis for a liberal view of political institutions. The nature of Rawls’ use of Kant has engendered serious controversy but has demonstrated the vitality of Kantian considerations across a wider range of questions than was once thought plausible.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kantian_ethics

The poet Heine, who was a friend of Marx and upon whom the latter at one time had a great influence, depicted very vividly Kant’s motives for treading the two paths. Kant had an old and faithful servant, Lampe, who had lived with, and attended to, his master for forty years. For Kant this Lampe was the personification of the average man who could not live without religion. After a brilliant exposition of the revolutionary import of the Critique of Pure Reason in the struggle with theology and with the belief in a Divine Principle, Heine explained why Kant found it necessary to write the Critique of Practical Reason in which the philosopher re-established everything he had torn down before. Here is what Heine wrote:

“After the tragedy comes the farce. Immanuel Kant has hitherto appeared as the grim, inexorable philosopher; he has stormed heaven, put all the garrison to the sword; the ruler of the world swims senseless in his blood; there is no more any mercy, or fatherly goodness, or future reward for present privations; the immortality of the soul is in its last agonies — death rattles and groans. And old Lampe stands by with his umbrella under his arm as a sorrowing spectator, and the sweat of anguish and tears run down his cheeks. Then Immanuel Kant is moved to pity, and shows himself not only a great philosopher, but a good man. He reconsiders, and half good-naturedly and half ironically says, ‘Old Lampe must have a God, or else the poor man cannot be happy, and people really ought to be happy in this world. Practical common sense declares that. Well, meinet wegen, for all I care, let practical reason guarantee the existence of a God.'” [Heinrich Heine, Collected Works. W. Heineman, London, 1906. Vol. 5, pp. 150-151.]

http://marxistupdate.blogspot.com/2012/01/immanuel-kant-marxist-view.html

That’s how the political left has been able to implement and enact a communist strategy while at the same time convincing people who think they are hard-core conservative Central Committee members that they are doing the work established by Immanuel Kant.  What they don’t know is that Kant put down the foundations of Marxism which would evolve into open communism to essentially destroy the economy of Russia allowing Europe to rise to power after World War I.  It’s all German philosophy people.  But eventually Kant would influence John Rawls who nearly singlehandedly brought detrimental liberalism to most political institutions academic and social.  His magnum opusA Theory of Justice (1971), was said at the time of its publication to be “the most important work in moral philosophy since the end of World War II[4]and is now regarded as “one of the primary texts in political philosophy”.[5] His work in political philosophy, dubbed Rawlsianism,[6] takes as its starting point the argument that “the most reasonable principles of justice are those everyone would accept and agree to from a fair position”.[5] Rawls attempts to determine the principles of social justice by employing a number of thought experiments such as the famous original position in which everyone is impartially situated as equals behind a veil of ignorance.[5] He is one of the major thinkers in the tradition of liberal political philosophy. According to English philosopher Jonathan Wolff, while there could be a “dispute about the second most important political philosopher of the 20th century, there could be no dispute about the most important: John Rawls”.[4]

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Rawls

It is because of Kant then Rawls that Governor Kasich and the Ohio State Central Committee is a bunch of idiots.  It is their foundation philosophy that Ann Becker and her purists are fighting against.  Of course Kasich and his gang don’t understand what Ann is talking about just as they can’t understand why Trump and Cruz are doing so well nationally in the 2016 presidential race—they continue to function based on the beliefs they have been taught by education institutions following the philosophy of John Rawls.  CLICK TO REVIEW.  They don’t understand because their thinking is wrong and out of touch with the rest of the world.  So I suggest dear reader that you do as Ann has asked, over the next eight weeks you need to register to vote in the primary and you need to defy the Ohio State Central Committee leadership and vote for anybody but John Kasich.  He is a failed person not because he’s bad—but because he was taught to be an idiot who follows Kant instead of some American philosopher with proper foundation thoughts, such as Thomas Jefferson or Ayn Rand.  Send the German philosophy back to Europe the way they sent it to Russia to destroy that nation.  Keep that stuff out of America and especially the state of Ohio.

Chicago Police Corruption: The Rubber Gun Squad, race baiters, and FOP unions

Here are two very good articles about the police shooting of a black teenage kid in Chicago and the subsequent protests by the Black Lives Matter crowd, who as we have covered before is a black insurgency group driven by a communist ideology seeking to implant itself in black communities. Both the Chicago police and the Black Lives Matter people are born of the same liberal womb—they are the creations of progressive police and government expansion seeking to use each other to advance the spread of less individual rights with each news story demanding more public safety through increased support of both. Before I provide a more proper commentary read the below I-Team report from ABC 7 below, followed by a Reuters article. Both tell a story that should be very disconcerting to all. I put them up in their completions with the links included because months from now when this story is lost to time—people will still need to remember the dynamics of this particular case and the context I’m presenting will still need to be preserved for ease of reflection.

CHICAGO (WLS) —

The ABC7 I-Team has obtained new police dash-cam video of the moments leading up to Laquan McDonald’s deadly encounter with police. The new videos from five police vehicles show Officer Jason Van Dyke, who faces first-degree murder charges in McDonald’s death, in pursuit of the teenager before the shooting. One of the blurry videos is from inside Van Dyke’s police vehicle. On Oct. 20, 2014, Officer Van Dyke and his partner were in a convenience store parking lot when the call came in and they responded. Video from another police car shows Van Dyke on the move, weaving through traffic, rushing to a report of a man wielding a knife. GRAPHIC VIDEO: Click here to watch new, unedited dash-cam video from five police vehicles the night of Laquan McDonald’s death During the incident, you can see McDonald, 17, crossing right in front of his vehicle, carrying what appears to be a knife. Thirty seconds later, he collapses to the street, shot 16 times.

The video shows the view Officer Van Dyke had of McDonald while sitting in the passenger seat during the pursuit. It puts Van Dyke on the trail of the teenager and involved in the chase about 30 seconds earlier than first thought. At this point in the video, the vehicle emergency lights had been turned off. That should also have switched off the dash-cam, but for some reason, Van Dyke’s dash-cam continued recording despite an “off” icon on the screen. Regardless, the video continued recording as his police car pulled up to the scene where McDonald is walking down the street. It is at this point – about 30 seconds after he apparently first spotted McDonald – that Van Dyke got out of his vehicle and opened fire, emptying his police pistol. Video from a different dash-cam shows McDonald’s body on the street after the shooting, still alive before paramedics arrived. The dash-cams are supposed to record audio, but during the McDonald incident, none did. Only the muffled sound of sirens can be heard, but no voices. On Tuesday, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy addressed the absence of audio on dash-cam videos. “There were apparently technical difficulties, but in no way shape or form is there any evidence that anything was tampered with,” McCarthy said. Wednesday night, a Chicago police official said there was no audio because the batteries in the dash-cams had been put in improperly and facing the wrong direction, which disables the audio part of the recorder. CPD says officers responsible for maintaining their dash-cams are being retrained to avoid this. “Sometimes officers need to be disciplined if they don’t turn it on at the right circumstance which is why we’re working out all the details of our body cam project,” McCarthy said. The fatal shooting occurred in front of a Burger King, which may have captured some of the moments leading up to the slaying. The restaurant manager said that four or five police officers asked him for the password to his surveillance system the night of the shooting. A camera allegedly caught one of the officers touching the DVR. The manager told ABC7 that the Independent Police Review Authority showed up later, it had been determined that up to 15 files had been deleted. However, police officials had said the FBI had determined there was no tampering.

Newly released police dashboard camera videos from the scene of the shooting of a black teenager by a white Chicago patrolman could raise fresh questions over documentation of the killing, as the city braced for an organized protest march on Friday.

Like the first video released on Tuesday, the new footage lacks discernible audio of the Oct. 20, 2014 shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald by Officer Jason Van Dyke. Audio and video should be automatically activated on the cameras, according to police department policy.

Van Dyke on Tuesday became the first Chicago police officer in decades to be charged with murder for on-duty use of lethal force and is in jail pending a second bond hearing on Monday.

Protests over police killings of black men have rocked a number of U.S. cities in the past 18 months. Chicago has seen muted reaction thus far to such incidents, even though police shootings there have been more frequent on average than in the bigger cities of New York and Los Angeles.

The new footage from dashboard cameras on squad cars, sent to Reuters and other media in response to public record requests, does not show the actual shooting.

McDonald’s killing and the 13-month delay in charging Van Dyke and releasing the video led to demonstrations on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The powerful Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) is supporting a Black Friday march along Michigan Avenue, an upscale shopping street, organized by civil rights leader Reverend Jesse Jackson.

“We have watched in anger and disappointment as the city has covered up police violence,” CTU Vice President Jesse Sharkey said in a statement. He accused Mayor Rahm Emanuel of delaying release of the videos while he was running for re-election, which he won in April. Emanuel and other officials said they delayed releasing the video to avoid tainting the investigation of Van Dyke.

There were no signs of protests on Thursday despite some calls on social media for demonstrations at the annual Thanksgiving Day parade.

Police guarded the parade through Chicago’s downtown business district, which was packed with families and tourists watching high school bands playing instruments and dancing as inflatables hovered above their heads.

A HISTORY OF COMPLAINTS

Van Dyke had 20 misconduct complaints against him but he was never disciplined, according to the Citizens Police Data Project, a database of 56,000 misconduct complaints against Chicago police officers compiled by the Invisible Institute, a transparency organization.

However, a federal jury in a civil trial against Van Dyke and Thomas McKenna found in 2010 that the two officers had used excessive force during a 2007 traffic stop. The city was ordered to pay the plaintiff, Edward Nance, $350,000 in damages as well as $180,000 in legal fees, according to documents in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

TECHNICAL PROBLEM

The first tape of the shooting was released under court order hours after Van Dyke was charged. It showed McDonald as he was gunned down in the middle of a street.

Police said the sound was missing from the first tape due to an unspecified technical problem. A spokesman for the department did not immediately respond on Thursday to an e-mailed question about why the footage released on Wednesday also does not have audio.

One of those new videos is from the patrol car that Van Dyke was in and shows McDonald running away from the vehicle. The shooting occurs off camera.

Prosecutors and police said McDonald was carrying a folding knife and had the hallucinogenic drug PCP in his system.

The Chicago Police Department directive on dashboard cameras says they “automatically engage audio and video recording when the vehicle’s emergency-roof lights are activated.”

Officers are supposed to verify cameras are working properly and immediately notify a supervisor if they are inoperable, according to the directive. Police can also manually activate the system.

Chicago police have shot an average of 50 people a year over the last seven years. That average exceeds that of the larger cities of New York and Los Angeles.

Of those shot by Chicago police, 74 percent have been black. On average there have been 17 fatal police shootings in Chicago each year since 2007.

Without question, the Chicago police covered up the incriminating evidence of a fellow police officer in this particular shooting. I view police as necessary, but because of my long history with them I can testify that they cannot be trusted without private oversight, particularly when it comes to the police union. Police should not be allowed to unionize, so long as they can, this kind of corruption will go unpunished, because their FOP unions prevent proper discipline.   If you’ve ever seen the film The Wolf of Wall Street, our police forces are every bit as corrupt, only not on the financial side of things. What goes on and why it does would make your skin crawl. I hate that police corruption so much that I even wrote a book about it—The Tail of the Dragon. In short, there is no way our society can ever just trust the police in a gun free society. They are prone to be power-hungry and love to abuse that power. Police cannot be allowed to go unchecked and mismanaged, and so long as they are members of a police union, they will be potential menaces to individual citizens.

However, they are necessary in a society. Cops are often exposed to so much human degradation, particularly in poor communities where human values are quite vacant that they begin to lose their minds. If not for the labor unions, those cops would be otherwise placed on the “rubber gun squad” which is essentially desk work and removed from public interaction until they get their minds right. When a police officer sees too much and their personal value system finds it can’t cope, those cops need to be pulled off the street. Officer Van Dyke behaved as if he should have been on the “rubber gun squad” a long time ago. Likely he wasn’t because the labor unions do most of the personnel management in police forces keeping police chiefs from taking action when they know they should otherwise be placed on desk jobs until their psychological evaluations clear them for their regular police tasks.

So there is a lot going on with this case. Liberals and their war on poverty have used blacks and their conditions of discontent to be the next Martin Luther Kings with race baiters like Jesse Jackson to make good money through the exploitation—and they never seek to actually solve the problem of helping black kids with actual intelligence based educations. Profiteering race baiters purposely keep black children in a victimized state so that they will harass the police and be street thugs to advance the marketing of political money pouring into those communities so they can skim some off the top for their own decadent lifestyles. The police led not by their chain of command, but their labor unions abuse their authority all the time and frequently step over the line of proper conduct abusing people’s Constitutional rights on a constant basis. The two sides are played against each other by liberal politics for the primary purpose of marketing both with publicity, even if it’s negative, for the expansion of more confiscated tax burdens.

The real solution to all of this is less police, eliminated union membership and more individualized based property protection—in other words, a strong national commitment to the Second Amendment. This does two things, it decentralizes the security of a region and it takes the money out of union membership dues making police forces a much less lucrative safe-haven for corruption and manipulation. Cops are needed; brave cops are better—valiant souls who truly want to do the right things. But these idiots who just want to break down doors, and get blow jobs from innocent girls trying to get out of traffic tickets are abusing their authority to extraordinary degrees, and it needs to stop.

To prove I know something about this issue let me provide come clarification, and evidence based on personal history. I had a good friend who worked for me for a time who left my employment to become a cop in Hamilton. Ohio—a fairly nice Midwest town in the southern portion of the state. He left my employment for more money as a cop, his wife was already a cop in Franklin, Ohio and most of their social networks were cops. They had parties together often and associated frequently with cops all over the region. They were also swingers, as a couple. I had them at gatherings at my house a few times and learned a lot more than I cared to learn about off-duty cops and their lifestyle habits. That guy was later busted for pulling over attractive girls and letting them off with a warning in exchange for oral sex. The police force tried to help cover it up, but the evidence was just too overwhelming, so he moved to another city and became a cop there. These cops have a massive network and they help each other. Not all of them, but more than a few sleep with each other’s wives and conduct their personal life in a pretty disgraceful fashion. I have many more examples—in fact, I could write several books on what I know about them, but to me the worst example is that old friend of mine. I took him for a brave young guy who was an adrenaline junkie that could be used for good. Instead he was a sex maniac who wanted to use his power and authority to commit vile evil on innocent people. We stopped being friends after I learned about what he was doing with the girls in the cars. It’s not just blacks in poor neighborhoods—it’s everyone. You just don’t have communist groups uniting the young girls of a local high school to protest against the police because nobody is going to feel sorry for a bunch of pretty white high school girls. But blacks have a history with civil rights and Martin Luther King marches that can be exploited by thieves and other treacherous characters to advance sympathy and garner donations.

Of course I got to know that friend’s wife. She had slept with half of the male members of her police force and they all had wives they were cheating on with her—and those women knew what was going on, and everyone was very open about it. But I didn’t respond and she lost interest quickly probably considering me too “uppity” for them. I was her husband’s boss at the time, so she held her tongue around me, but I can only imagine what she said after they were together away from my ears, because his behavior toward me changed after that. That’s when I realized that these cops and their personal ethics were dreadfully vacant. As government employees, I would never trust them with my life. I like the job they do most of the time, but I would never trust them exclusively. You never know if they are up for the “rubber gun squad” or when they will be. For many of them, the sex and other forms of recklessness is a form of balance to bring them back from the brink of what they see on patrol, the battered bodies in car wrecks, the domestic violence, and the bad social conduct of the people they are forced to see during routine calls. It takes a steady mind to hold up to the rigor, even in nice neighborhoods. And only a few out of hundreds are up to that level of conduct. The police unions cover up the other cases and there’s nothing a mayor or police chief can do about it.

Police are trained incorrectly how to deal with stress. Too many police are shooting not just blacks, but everyone. Blacks are the only group protesting under organized assault. Per capita it might look like blacks are disproportionately being targeted, but that is largely because they are often confined to a poor neighborhood connected directly to government housing and other benefits. Black youth appear to be so badly out of control because they are largely fatherless, which is the primary cause of their behavior. Government has a lot to do with the reason those black families are fatherless, and government is also behind the bad behavior of cops. So government has been the cause of most of the problem, their mismanagement in both situations.   Given that, there is no way that government can even consider making a case for dismantling the Second Amendment. Government can and does abuse its obligations and when they get caught, just like in the Hillary Clinton case and with Lois Lerner at the IRS, they lie, delete emails, and hide behind their labor unions to cover up their crimes. Government is a big problem; they purposely make people poor so they can use them to advance an agenda. Their employees are out-of-control, and they destroy evidence which only they can use to prosecute. The Chicago case of November 2015 is just one small example of a long history of abuse. And the only conclusion we can make is that they can’t be trusted, any of them. We can’t trust the civil rights activists because of the inclination to communist influence, and we can’t trust the cops because they are prone to corruption by the very nature of their jobs. When they are mentally unfit for service, their labor unions protect them from the “rubber gun squad.” So what are we to do? Protect the Second Amendment, because you’re going to need it—if only to keep all this government mismanagement away from your dinner table.

Why You Should Cancel Your Membership To The Chamber of Commerce: The hidden hand of politics

The Chamber of Commerce in any local town in America is filled with second-handers who seek to use the thin disguise of “team building” exercises to leech off the truly productive and steer those same minds politically into their desired—collective direction.  In my home town it was the Superintendent of Lakota hired by Lynda O’Conner who immediately worked on the members of No Lakota Levy through the Chamber of Commerce to sway them away from any kind of public dialogue that might prevent the public school of Lakota from achieving a tax increase.  The goal was to facilitate opinion through networking with Chamber membership and if they could not change their mind about taxing themselves into oblivion—they might at least shut their mouths publicly.  At the Four Bridges Country Club in fact on August 12th 2014 Lynda is the emcee for a Chamber discussion about the Affordable Care Act.  Members of the Chamber, non members, and walk-ins are welcome of course—and hand-holding is deeply encouraged.  After all, what better way to associate with others at the elegant Four Bridges Country Club than through Chamber activity and once there—a subtle stream of collective oriented politics uttered by second-handers permeates the events.  (For those not familiar with a popular term I use regarding second-handers—they are people who live off the efforts of other people.)  It is not uncommon for local celebrities to speak at such functions so to bring a gravitas of influence that may be used for leverage at a later date—otherwise known as “networking.”

This use of celebrity arranged by Chamber of Commerce groups all over the country is quite common.  Many of these members, just as they are in my town, believe they are staunch Republicans—like Patti Alderson whose husband Dick will receive the Everest Award at the Cincinnati Marriott North on August 15th 2014, an event emceed by Clyde Gray of Channel 9, with Archie Griffin as the keynote speaker.  (No wonder Channel 9 pulled away from covering the Lakota levy opposition)  One of the sponsors of this event is the Cox Media Group who runs the local newspaper……hmmmm, isn’t it interesting how all these things go together.  Patti has the ear of the Governor of Ohio as well as the current Speaker of the House and she has her name on virtually every charity event that local Chamber members are a part of, and politics is a big part of these occasions—even though nobody actually talks about politics.  They talk around them—but always there is a subtle push to support the collective opinion of the membership leaders—like Patti who supports higher taxes, lame duck politicians (like her good friend John Boehner,) and lots of touchy feely second-hander efforts of community—because she is the definition of second-hander behavior.

On the national stage The Chamber team was scrounging around for ideas, desperate for a silver bullet that might alter the course of the many close campaigns around the country where Tea Party challengers were going up against deeply entrenched Republicans.  The national Chamber teams enlisted famous Republicans like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush to star in television ads for their favored candidates. The formula had paid off. In the Georgia Senate race, they looked beyond politics, convincing Herschel Walker, the iconic University of Georgia football hero whose in-state star power is second only to Jesus, to cut an ad supporting Jack Kingston, the Chamber-backed candidate.

They needed something similar in Mississippi. That’s when Pickering, an acquaintance of former NFL quarterback legend and southern Mississippi native Brett Favre, piped up.

“I think I can get to Brett,” Pickering said.

Reed pulled out his cell phone immediately and thrust it across the table. “Call him.”

The idea set off a madcap scramble to locate Favre, convince him to get involved in a political campaign, and produce a television ad compelling enough to pierce the political clutter on TV and sway new voters who hadn’t participated in the primary, which Cochran lost by only 1,400 votes. An initial survey of the runoff, conducted in the days after the June 3 primary by Chamber pollster Tony Fabrizio, showed Cochran trailing McDaniel by eight points.

“We knew the clock was ticking,” Reed recalls. “Our strategy was to grow the electorate. It was the only way to win. We knew if it was a closed primary, we would have lost. So we made a play for Reagan Democrats. Bubba. And who better than Brett? Especially in southern Mississippi where he is an icon, and where Thad had underperformed.”

It took three days to track down Favre, who was out of the state on vacation. The Chamber also sought out Eli Manning, another NFL standout who starred at Ole Miss. But he passed on the idea. By Monday, just eight days before the runoff, Favre agreed to shoot a pro-Cochran ad on his farm near Hattiesburg. Favre’s parents were schoolteachers; they sold him with Cochran’s promise to protect federal education funding.

“Brett is not a political guy,” says Rob Engstrom, who, along with Reed, helms the Chamber’s political operation. “But when we talked to him about it, he looked at it and said, ‘This is about our state.’ It appealed to him. He said yes right away.”

Back at Chamber headquarters in Washington, across the street from the White House, Reed and Engstrom scrambled the jets.

Their go-to film crew drove through the night across the Gulf Coast from Pensacola, Florida, to Hattiesburg. Their creative director caught a seat on the last flight south out of Dulles. Tuesday morning was spent shooting the commercial on Favre’s 460-acre farm.

Satisfied with the footage, the film crew flew back to Washington that night. The ad was in edit the next morning, and by Wednesday night the commercial — which showed Favre sitting on the bed of a truck, telling viewers that “Thad Cochran always delivers” — was shipped to television stations in Mississippi. The Chamber put $100,000 behind the spot every day for the final six days of the campaign.

Brett Favre, who grew up near Hattiesburg, starred in a Chamber-produced TV spot for Thad Cochran in Mississippi that saturated airwaves in the state for the final week of the runoff election.  Cochran pulled off a miracle, winning in narrow and dramatic fashion by only 6,700 votes — a result still being disputed by a flabbergasted McDaniel campaign.

It wasn’t the Chamber’s ad alone that did it. The Cochran campaign made a concerted push to grow turnout after the primary, a push that involved recruiting African-American voters and Republicans who might have otherwise stayed home. Other outside allies coordinated to do the same. But the Chamber’s role in helping drag Cochran over the finish line is undisputed.

“The guys at the Chamber are pros,” says Henry Barbour, a veteran GOP operative and Cochran supporter who ran a super PAC supporting the candidate. “They helped orchestrate an overall strategic effort that at the end of the day helped Sen. Cochran close the margins and win the election.”

The Mississippi runoff was a signal moment for the Chamber in what’s quickly becoming the most aggressive political cycle in its 102-year history.

The conservative-leaning outfit, known mainly for its heavyweight policy and lobbying practices — it spent $74 million on lobbying in 2013, according to the Center For Responsive Politics — has emerged as one of the most powerful actors in American political campaigns, with roughly $17 million spent so far on Senate and House races, all of it on behalf of Republicans friendly to the business community.

In doing so, the Chamber has planted itself firmly on the front line of the GOP establishment’s push to extinguish tea party ideologues wherever they threaten business-backed candidates — in Mississippi, Alabama, Ohio, Kentucky, and elsewhere.

I can attest to this effectiveness, it was through Chamber membership that many of my members of the No Lakota Levy were convinced to sit on their hands and keep quiet during the Lakota tax increase of 2013.  I am not a member of the Chamber Alliance—which is what it is called in my community.  At the links below, a quick look will tell why.  In their publication called the “The Voice” by reading the March edition we were told by Lynne Rhul and Denise DiStasi that “Culture eats strategy for breakfast,” which is an enormously stupid statement.  Further during their March 2014 luncheon those two brilliant minds of entrepreneurship stated that there are three main problems with false perceptions of observation—the first is the belief that your way is the right way, even though some of your actions are just based on habit. The second is the fear of the unknown, and the third main problem is making assumptions, including those based on looks or cultural stereotypes.  All those things can be applied to how we do business.  Lynne further stated that “all life has value, otherwise we would feel entitled to treat others poorly–respect should not be earned, but rather given.”  Oh, isn’t that so sweet—and when Lynne said it—the heads in the room were nodding—YES.  It is in events like that luncheon that much damage is done in politics.  What Lynne Rhul and Denise DiStasi were articulating were basic progressive politics uttered behind the perceptual façade of a conservative business oriented organization.

If that wasn’t enough jump up to the June/July edition of a ”The Voice” at the link below and read about the Leadership 21 segment from William Greenwald—the founder and chief “Neuroleaderologist” from the Windsor Leadership Group.  He says that the best way to manage stress is to:

  • Exercise, exercise, exercise (it’s like “cognitive candy” for the brain)
  • Recruit positive emotions (e.g. watch a funny movie, get together with a friend, recruit happy memories.)
  • Control your physiological arousal (e.g. deep breath exercises)
  • Perform a spiritual activity (e.g. visit your church or take time to say a prayer for someone else.)
  • Practice mindfulness techniques and self-reflect on forms of gratitude.

Seriously, have a look for yourself.

So I am not a part of my local Chamber.  It is a cesspool of second-handers who want suck off the efforts of those who are actually doing things in the world—taking their money and using their influence gained to manipulate celebrity, finance, politics, and the media to steer society into a progressive direction.  The only use that Chamber of Commerce organizations have for their members is to provide a social outlet for people to bang wine glasses together occasionally and feel sophisticated.  But what really occurs is that those who are truly sophisticated are used to prop up those who are not and usually it is the ring masters of these events who are doing the leeching.  They don’t have a quality event unless the best and brightest from the community attend their luncheons, and ceremonies.  So I stay away.

When it is wondered why nothing ever happens in politics and why the status quo seems unmovable—it is because the money that feeds the political machine is either funneled through local Chambers of Commerce or the people who possess such money have their minds encumbered with progressive tripe like the examples provided—spoon fed to them by their local Chamber leaders.    All these nice ideas about “all life has value, otherwise we would feel entitled to treat others poorly, respect should not be earned, but rather given,” sound nice while having a luncheon with what everyone thinks are the smartest minds of West Chester nibbling on a catered lunch—but in reality those people haven’t visited a neighborhood in downtown Hamilton recently where crack addicts have destroyed themselves and their children, or the prostitutes on East Avenue continue to spread disease and mayhem to scum bag husbands cheating on their wives—some of which were at that same luncheon.  It is reckless, and foolish for Lynne Rhul to preach “no judgment” when everything that one should do in business is make decisions based on judgment—and leadership—not that kind of crap that William Greenwald is talking about—but the kind of leadership that can see things happening for they actually arrive—being at the front of the train instead of in the back—being on the “cutting edge.”  Greenwald through the Chamber wastes enormous amounts of productive time steering members toward ridiculous stress management techniques that might as well be taken from an Indian bathing in the Ganges.  Following those methods will not lead a community to victory and productive enterprise—it will lead to a dirt road in the middle of a third world country.

But what’s worse than the progressive opinions of these contributors are the hidden efforts to keep the politics of a community from drifting too conservatively away from progressive strategies.  I know many of the people who are members of my local Chamber—especially Lynda O’Conner—and even though she sells herself to conservative groups and comes to conservative events—she is not a conservative—not in the way that I am, that’s for sure.  And Patti Alderson is of the same mind as Lynda.  Those two ladies might be good for arranging a picnic and raising money for some hungry kids, but they have no place “leading” a community to anything with the title “leadership” at its heading—which the Chamber of Commerce groups all across the nation continuously abuse.  Chamber of Commerce organizations all across America are simply deployment stations for second-handers who need to suck off the energy of the truly productive.  Many people who operate businesses believe that they must take part in these activities—there is a bit of vanity in them which desires to be loved by other human beings for the power and wealth they have accumulated—so they participate because of the social aspects.  But they cannot keep second-handers from sucking off of them and then using that looted value to manipulate politics back toward moderate positions contaminated by progressive influence.

If you dear reader really want to fix the world—you should withdrawal your Chamber of Commerce memberships.  For those who really want to succeed in business, you won’t learn much from the people who are emcees at Chamber events—and what you do learn will be all the wrong types of things.  “Judgment” in business is one of the most important aspects of it—and when it is asserted that judgments should be avoided—you know you are talking to an idiot when it comes to fiscal responsibility, and business enterprise.

Why Pay For A Public Education System That Doesn’t Work: The evidence of a ‘Water’s World’ segment

I blame public education and modern colleges for many of our contemporary problems because they deserve it. They have not earned such high wages for teachers and college professors as they are currently receiving because they are failing at their jobs.  I hear all the time from teachers who think I am being unfair to them, and should show respect for their professions.  They also continue to state that they are overworked and underpaid which is completely ridiculous at this point—as I have labeled most teachers in public education as very expensive baby sitters.  Kids are not learning anything in public schools and colleges.  They are only learning how to take directions, they are not learning to think, and that is a massive failure in any education system.  For proof, this segment of Water’s World done during the Bill O’Reilly show shot during Memorial Day Weekend provides all anyone needs to confirm my statements.  Those poor children featured are the future of America.  They are future voters and decision makers—and they will as shown—fail at life.  They aren’t able in their present form to even raise a child let alone run a nation with the massive wave of problems coming at them.   Watch the segment for yourself.

That is just disgraceful, and most of those kids are proud of their stupidity.  It’s cool to them to be so dumb.  Hey—I remember what it was like.  Even when I was in school the way to pick up girls was to act like you didn’t know anything.  It was like putting on a muzzle and within a few weeks of dating, they learned quickly that I knew a lot and it scared the crap out of them.  No matter how good-looking you might be, if you were smart, they were not interested.  I remember specifically, even though I was married there was a very pretty girl who wanted desperately to date me.  She practically threw herself at my feet every day I saw her.  Being loyal to my wife, I kept her at arms bay which was sometimes difficult—until one day she told me that Jurassic Park was the dumbest movie she had ever seen.  She said to me, “who wants to watch a bunch of dinosaurs running around?”  Then she laughed as though I would follow her lead in the conversation.  I told her I would.  We never spoke again.   Those are common experiences with people and I have seen it all my life, and it starts in public school at the kindergarten level.  I don’t think any teacher believes they are contributing to such stupidity—but the system they teach mandated by the state creates such a lack of curiosity in young people as shown in young women like the attractive seductress mentioned.

People wonder why I married so young when so many pretty girls were available and there was so much fun to be had.  When my wife and I married I was 19 and she was 18.  Parents on both sides thought we were suffering from a mother/father complex where we found in each other extensions of our home life as we were moving out into the world on our own.  Well, that was an inaccurate assessment if there ever was one.  What my wife and I shared was a love of thinking.  She loved to think, and so did I and neither one of us wanted to waste our time on stupid people, and playing stupid just so we could date members of the opposite sex.

Public schools breed a lack of curiosity about life.  This behavior extended into college which we both detested—obviously in the case of the Water’s World segment it was the University of Maryland that was failing.  Any child who arrives at age 18 to 19 as those kids are and is still that stupid about the world—it is not their fault—it is the fault of their parents and teachers who failed to inspire in them a love of learning and curiosity about life.    I have never forgotten the Jurassic Park comment from the attractive girl.  She went on to have a series of bad relationships and ended up being a stripper at New York New York in Franklin, Ohio.  What I knew of her was that her father left her mother when she was very little for another woman and she barely knew anything of him.  As a result of that unhealthy relationship, she had a father complex.  She was filling her life with people who filled the father role in her life—but she was ultimately attracted to abuse.  She was not able to even consider a healthy relationship due to her unfortunate past leaving all her contact with other males to be superficial.  At the time Jurassic Park came out and I mentioned it favorably she didn’t understand.  I have heard the same kind of comments from people about Star Wars, Star Trek, and most films and books that inspire thinking.  Because I didn’t look “geeky” girls would seek me out as potential company, but after just a little inquiry, they learned that I’m not like them and they’d move on to someone else.  My wife and I got married not just because we fell in love, but because neither of us wanted to play that stupid game.  We are both the kind of people who would expect to be five for five if interviewed by Jesse Waters and would expect nothing less.  It would ruin our day to miss one of those questions—because we care about knowing things.

Without a curiosity about life, there cannot be any success and the kids interviewed during the Water’s World segment have no chance at success in life.  The girl in that thong who giggled at all her missed questions—she will not raise good kids and have a good life.  She may manage to snag some rich slob who will leave his old wife for a new younger one, and the thronged girl may live in a big house, drive a big new car and have diamond jewelry—but she will look like a dirty rug by the time she’s 35, and she’ll be alone and bitter—no longer giggling her way through life—because the elements to her future failure are already in motion provided to her by her education up to that point.  It is a serious problem.

Women are taught as young girls in their public schools to seduce young boys.  Because teachers are teaching everyone to be the same, the only way to lure boys to girls once puberty kicks in is to give them bits of sex—which is taught in sex education as early as the fourth grade these days.  Once that happens the neat little children who had been building cars and airplanes out of Lego blocks and watching lots of educational television on Nickelodeon and Disney Channel begin learning to shut down their creativity and channel their energy into dumbing themselves down for potential sexual partners.  By the time children turn 10 to 11 years old, most of them find their minds destroyed by public education methods that have only taught them the basic low-level ambitions such as food acquisition, sexual release, and general social skills—which are already instinctual.

Movies like Jurassic Park are not one of the most beloved blockbusters of all time because people didn’t like it.   That girl who spoke despairingly about it to me likely would have enjoyed it as a little girl—before her puberty years when there was still a curiosity about the world.  She probably did like it when she saw it with her eventual children.  But during the mating game, which her life was so much about—she couldn’t let herself enjoy such things because the guys she had been talking to up until that time, and after also played stupid with her—and got so good at it after 10 years that they just stopped thinking.  They do such a thing to themselves because sex with young girls like the girls in the Water’s World segment is impossible if they show too much ambition of thought.

Finally, I raved yesterday about my positive experiences at Yottaquest where I played in an X-Wing Tournament.  One thing that was missing in those places was women.  There were no pretty girls coming in and playing X-Wing.  But the guys who were playing had already decided in their lives that they didn’t care for such things.  Most of them were married for much the same reason my wife and I married.   They don’t want to play the game of being stupid to have sexual partners.  Once you are married, you can share your intelligence with your partner and be free of the foolishness of single life stupidity which is staged during the public education experience.  I have two daughters and they are very attractive—but they enjoy places like Yottaquest because as a father I always taught them how not to be like that poor girl who hated Jurassic Park.  Such girls will never land a good guy in her life which she can share her real thoughts.  It’s not a mystery, I taught my children to be curious and full of lifelong learning—and Jurassic Park is one of their favorite movies—and their husbands are grateful for it.  Stupidity is shackles for the mind—and is just as limiting as literal shackles on arms and legs.

The seeds for thought are planted in children very young by their parents.  If the parents are not very good, the children will suffer.  But even parents who do plant the seeds of lifelong curiosity find their children have those seeds extracted by the public education process and destroyed.  By the time kids reach 12 to 15 years old their minds are gone—mentally and destined to be like the kids from Maryland College.  There are a few kids who escape and I find them in places like Yottaquest on a Saturday afternoon, or at an X-Wing Miniatures event—or playing Magic the Gathering in a booth at Trader’s World.  But for most people, they are destined to be like that poor girl who didn’t like Jurassic Park—who had lost the adventure of learning too early in her life to save her from future tragedy.  Not that liking Jurassic Park would have helped her with me, my wife already had me, but she could have met another good-hearted person who could have enriched her life.  Instead, she is old and bitter, and all used up as just another former has been for a series of dimwitted males crippled in their minds from an insufficient public education that destroys most of the people it processes.

So why are we paying for such a stupid thing to happen with tax dollars?

Second-hander Jay Carney Leaving Obama: Why the administration promoted another “white guy”

In a world of careful calculation where nothing happens by accident, Jay Carney’s decision to resign within hours of Eric Shinseki’s resignation as Veterans Affairs Secretary says more in what it doesn’t say, than what it does.  The Press Secretary and close advisor to Obama, suddenly decided to leave his post on a Friday at the end of May hoping that by the first Monday of June, the nation would have forgotten why—and forgiven the administration for not standing in front of the press to take barrages of questions that can never be answered especially now that the mismanagement of the VA scandal is just beginning.  Obama and his team at the White House have proven themselves to be everything people like me have said about them—they may be functioning communists, diabolical progressives, even religious radicals—but at the heart of them is serious incompetency that can no longer hide behind slick words carefully constructed by public relations tricks.  For Carney to leave at this point in time points to just how bad it is behind the scenes at the White House attempting to put five major scandals climaxed by the VA situation under a rock that no longer exists.  Carney’s exit is about leaving an administration that will soon collapse in front of the world under the full weight of sheer stupidity—and the now former press secretary is savvy enough to see it.

Carney said that he wanted to leave his post as far back as April indicating that he wanted to spend more time with his children whom he shares with ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman.  Yet such people as Carney and Shipman do not put their children before their careers under any circumstances—ever.  They plot and scheme their social-climbing every minute of every day always on the lookout for a rising star for which they can clip on a tow hook to ride.  As typical second-handers, they live through other people’s achievements.  They don’t raise children—unless they wish to hide behind them—as most progressives do when they desire something whether it is a school levy, or a new law through congress.  For Carney who has already lived in Russia for four years as a correspondent for Time Magazine and later served as bureau chief—what would it cost his children to wait two more years for the Obama administration to leave office?  The answer is nothing.  Carney and his wife have already put career over their kids, and it is unfathomable to think they would have a change of heart now when the most powerful man in the world considers them a friend needing an allay at the hardest point in his life.   Carney’s exit is a strategy in second-handed self-preservation ahead of the growing implication of serious scandals that won’t go away and are picking up momentum.

The blood is now in the water and the sharks smell it.  Obama is in trouble.  The VA debacle for most Americans is the promise of what Obamacare will give them and the world knows it.  Everything that is wrong with the VA—the waiting 115 days for treatment dying in line, the systemic misconduct from every level of that government office and the incompetency of 1700 vets not even put on the list being forgotten by a bureaucracy that has no value for their individuality.  The correct impression is that Obamacare will be handled in the same way.  The VA scandal is the future of America’s health care system—and finally people see it.

How do I know—well, my son-in-law is from England where his family already has this socialized medicine that Obamacare is molded from, and most of his family has moved to The United States chasing the benefits of American life.  Listening to their stories about how difficult it is to get medical care in England sounds exactly like the VA Department under president Obama.  There is no indication that Obamacare could be managed any better—and Americans know it.

Carney is leaving because as a second-hander he knows when there is nothing left to suck off of from the current White House, and also is savvy enough to think that passing duties off to Josh Earnest will buy time for Obama—as Earnest can claim ignorance for a month or two.  About Earnest, isn’t it interesting that such a “progressive” administration as Obama’s didn’t ask an African-American to be his press secretary instead of another “white male,” or even a woman.  Why do you think that is dear reader?  They certainly could have, yet Obama has picked his third white male as press secretary in six years.  Why not give an African-American a chance at the job if the White House is truly progressive.  I’ll tell you that answer too—it is because The White House truly fears that America is a racist nation based on their radical beliefs and will not listen to the lies of anybody but one of their own.  The White House fears these things because they are guilty—not because they are innocent.  The evidence of real behavior and motivations is always in what is not said, not what is.  If Obama really wanted to promote African-American advancement, he’d put someone like Morgan Freeman up as press secretary and let the chips fall where they may the way he has with his corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder.  But where Holder has failed, Obama cannot risk his personal shield—the press secretary to be of a type that will further anger the American public—so they put up a safe—clean cut white guy for the third time in a row.

The guilt of The White House is spilling over to such an extent that Jay Carney hopes to throw himself on the sword for Obama one last time in behalf of the VA scandal, but as a second-hander knows that Obama has nothing left to offer and does not want to be the guy answering questions that will come in the months that follow. So he left, not to be near his children, or hang out with his wife, but to hide from the storm that is coming where a new star will be sought out—or he will hide in obscurity defeated forever as being so intimately attached to an Executive Branch that is riddled with corruption and incompetence to such an extent it might as well be a third world dictatorship.

The Deliberate Destruction of the American Economy: Belgium suddenly interested in Treasury bonds

Over the Memorial Day weekend there were a lot of issues discussed among family and friends–the sports scores of the local baseball teams, the Hockey playoffs, the NBA playoffs, how well the respective NFL teams did in the recent draft, the latest summer box office films and the general emptiness of economic purchases. But the extent of discussion about what is really important, topics like politics and philosophy, only general rumblings about President Obama made the cut. Over the weekend, my father-in-law turned 70 and we wanted to treat him to the movie Godzilla. Along the way to the theater, from his very affluent neighborhood and the surrounding area which is well above average in per capita income—economic activity was vibrant. Restaurants were full, stores were packed, and the movie house was crowded—there was no trace of the generally terrible economic news which is about to hit America. All seemed well.

After the movie there was a very nice party for my father-in-law who loved the Godzilla film and was enjoying his birthday to a live blue grass band hired for his personal entertainment. I watched the party goers closely, mostly avoiding the devastating news that the American economy is nowhere near as good as it appeared. There is trouble coming, which is in evidence by the fact that the news no longer covers the terrible events of Greece, Italy, or Cyprus, because there is no end in sight for them to prosper economically. Their financial crises did not go away—they just stopped being covered—and the same fiscal cliff is headed for our shores in North America.

I thought of an article I had just read by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com which did a good job of painting a picture of how bad the economy actually is caused in part by the Federal Reserve quantitative easing practices. While reading it I thought of my father-in-law who has been fiscally very successful and came a long way in his life, and he has seen it all. He saw the post World-War II boom, the communist years of the 60s, the economic destruction of the 70s, the vibrancy of the 80s, and 90s, and the sharp decline of American economic power since the terrorist acts of 9/11 occurred in 2001. It would be important to note that the intent of those attacks was to shatter not just the symbol of American capitalism—The World Trade Center—but the actual economy itself. Now $17 trillion dollars in deficit spending later the picture is clear—America will not recover easily from this economic tsunami. When one does the math, if America spent all of the profit of its GDP for the next 20 years on reducing the deficit—it would not succeed. The enemies of America know it. Most people are vaguely aware of it—but they avoid naming it as thought by refusing to acknowledge its existence, a different reality will present itself. But it won’t. To illustrate this condition I refer you dear reader to Brandon Smith’s article—at least a very relevant portion of it. The whole article can be seen at the link below.

On the surface, the economic atmosphere of the U.S. has appeared rather calm and uneventful. Stocks are up, employment isn’t great but jobs aren’t collapsing into the void (at least not openly), and the U.S. dollar seems to be going strong. Peel away the thin veneer, however, and a different financial horror show is revealed.

 

U.S. stocks have enjoyed unprecedented crash protection due to a steady infusion of fiat money from the Federal Reserve known as quantitative easing. With the advent of the “taper”, QE is now swiftly coming to a close (as is evident in the overall reduction in treasury market purchases), and is slated to end by this fall, if not sooner.

 

Employment has been boosted only in statistical presentation, and not in reality. The Labor Department’s creative accounting of job numbers omits numerous factors, the most important being the issue of long-term unemployed. Millions of people who have been jobless for so long they no longer qualify for benefits are being removed from the rolls. This quiet catastrophe has the side bonus of making it appear as though unemployment is going down.

 

U.S. Treasury bonds, and by extension the dollar, have also stayed afloat due to the river of stimulus being introduced by the Federal Reserve. That same river, through QE, is now drying up.

 

 

While many people assume that the stimulus measures of the Fed are driven by a desire to save our economy and currency, I see instead a concerted program of destabilization which is meant to bring about the eventual demise of our nation’s fiscal infrastructure. What some might call “kicking the can down the road,” I call deliberately stretching the country thin over time, so that any indirect crisis can be used as a trigger event to bring the ceiling crashing down.

 

In the past several months, the Fed taper of QE and subsequently U.S. bond buying has coincided with steep declines in purchases by China, a dump of one-fifth of holdings by Russia, and an overall decline in new purchases of U.S. dollars for FOREX reserves.

 

With the Ukraine crisis now escalating to fever pitch, BRIC nations are openly discussing the probability of “de-dollarization” in international summits, and the ultimate dumping of the dollar as the world reserve currency.

 

The U.S. is in desperate need of a benefactor to purchase its ever rising debt and keep the system running. Strangely, a buyer with apparently bottomless pockets has arrived to pick up the slack that the Fed and the BRICS are leaving behind. But, who is this buyer?

 

At first glance, it appears to be the tiny nation of Belgium.

 

While foreign investment in the U.S. has sharply declined since March, Belgium has quickly become the third largest buyer of Treasury bonds, just behind China and Japan, purchasing more than $200 billion in securities in the past five months, adding to a total stash of around $340 billion.

The article may be dismissed by Keynesian economists as the work of conspiracy theorists but it is actually quite true in content. Power is being divided up throughout the world and America is not being considered a player in that effort. Rather the very rich, who already know of the coming crises have mostly sold off their investments in America so they can capitalize off its fall from power. Belgium, as a small country is suddenly interested in American Treasury bonds? This is no accident.

Sadness washed over me at the event for my father-in-law as the sun set on the horizon and the blue grass music played on and darkness shrouded everyone listening, and talking. The metaphor was a proper one, and soon in America what used to be clear in the light of day and taken for granted would be cloaked in darkness and difficult to see without assistance. The economic vitality that virtually everyone was taking for granted was coming to an end, and nobody wanted to know it—even though they can feel the chill in the air of a coming darkness in American history.

The economic collapse is a military strategy, not a purely fiscal accident—and every American celebrating Memorial Day should see it for the threat that it is. This attack is not with tanks and troops, but of quantitative easing and Treasury bonds—sold to Belgium of all places—and the chanting fools of old Europe who wish once again to take their homeland and make it the most relevant place on earth—once America is out-of-the-way and no longer in charge.

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:



“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.


If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
