The Charlottesville Doctrine

Further demonstration of the fact that the terms Republican and Democrat have no meaning is the way the cowards and traitors of the Republican establishment have come out in favor of Antifa, the new KKK of both parties. There is no other way to interpret the vehemence with which the Bushes, Rubio, McCain, Cory Gardener, etc, etc have attacked Trump for pointing out the simple fact that violence was unleashed on the white supremacists and Nazis at the Charlottesville protest.

Like 'em or not, the white supremacists and Nazi's had a permit to rally and it was the responsibility of the state to protect that right and to protect the demonstrators. Those who did not have a permit were the Antifa counter-demonstrators, who arrived with weapons and the intent to inflict injury on the protesters. This is a coordinated attack on other Americans aided and abetted by the state and city governments.

What Antifa, with the help of government officials, including the police department and state police, have demonstrated to the entire nation, is that if someone has a point of view with which one disagrees, perhaps even vehemently, it should be countered with violence. I don't know what other message to take from the events of Charlottesville. It is a free for all.

In the days of the republic, folks like me allowed for these diverse opinions and points of view and allowed for peaceful demonstrations on behalf of opinions I found detestable, but no longer. Now that the principles of the republic have been done away with and civil discourse obliterated with violence, the sense of dedication to those principles is quickly diminishing.

Before, it was always a trade off, in order to have a civil society the worst points of view had to be tolerated. Now, when I see someone burn an American flag I no longer have to reflect on the whole purpose of the First Amendment and freedom of speech, I can (and should) as dictated by the Charlottesville Doctrine, stomp their head in.

This is the Charlottesville Doctrine: Protests held and engaged in by individuals with disgusting and socially objectionable points of view should be met with violence.

The Charlottesville Doctrine, just so you feel morally secure in these attacks is supported by U.S. Senators on both sides of the aisle. House of Representatives from both sides of the aisle, the media, judges, police officers, governors, mayors and state police. Have at it!

I discussed this on 580AM KUBC Aug 7 http://580kubc.com/t-l-davis-wrote-and-produced-lies-of-ommission/

Convert or Die? The Collectivist Question

After watching the events of Charlottesville through Twitter, blog posts like Virginia Freeman Jesse James, WRSA and through listening to news reports and media spin, I have stumbled upon a moment of absolute clarity. Civil War II has just begun.

Unlike morons like Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and others who continue to virtue signal that this was  White Supremacist violence and that they detest it, they willingly forget that the KKK and others had a permit to demonstrate and that Antifa did not. There would have been no violence had Antifa been kept in check as they were in Pikeville, KY earlier this year. The talking heads of radio allow themselves to be ushered into the Antifa camp with their weak, spineless desire to be understood. Anyone with half a brain recognizes that no particular color of individual bestows virtue or evil simply by the fact of that color.

But, engaging in a discussion of race where Charlottesville is concerned is just as stupid as denouncing racism because of Charlottesville. Racism is a tool of the collectivist. The goal is to dismantle the American society by attacking whites and the symbols of white success by branding it oppression. The clear fact that Antifa was able to violently disrupt a legally permitted protest is the degree to which collectivist governments can side with collectivist militants in broad daylight and be cheered on by a vile, collectivist media.

These things are working together to complete the coup against the republic. Against the republic, not Donald Trump, Trump just got in the way, got elected and started doing what the people wanted him to do. The collectivists in both parties did not have the ability to pay him off, entrap him in a scandal or appeal to his "global" citizenship as they are so often able to do with establishment Republicans. Because of that, he has now got to be destroyed. Not, because he is Trump, but because Trump is not a collectivist.

An honest evaluation of the events in Charlottesville and to a lesser degree Seattle establish that Antifa is the new KKK, the militant arm of the collectivist political wing of the United States Government. With the assistance of state governments with their headquarters in the bright blue metropolitan areas, no conservative will be allowed to speak, the ideas of individualism and capitalism will always be considered racist and white supremacist and should some individual black man rise to the top of the social heap via capitalism, he will be denounced as a racist and logic be damned.

A good way to really understand that racism has nothing to do with Charlottesville is to read the account of Rich Higgins reported by Breitbart.com. Islamic Jihadists have been given cover for their violence in the United States as a part of the equation.

All of this comes up to one conclusion, that Civil War has been initiated by the Deep State through all of the actors it can find to help destroy the American culture, because it must be eradicated in order for something else to take its place. This has to happen with the grudging agreement of the people in order for it to be fully implemented, the best way to do that is to accuse anyone who disagrees with their goals of racism, islamophobia, xenophobia and on and on.

This is not brain surgery. Anyone who truly understands a collectivist understands the method of replacing one political system with another. At some point it comes down to blood and blood has now been shed in a convincing way.

In Pikeville, KY earlier this year, when the same White Supremacists gathered for a rally and the police did an excellent job of keeping the peace, Antifa later risked severe sanctioning when they went after the police, who quickly ushered out reinforcements of the riot squad. Antifa is the terrorist organization in this scenario. America has always been strong enough to hear disparaging and contradictory views without violence, but that is not the issue here. Collectivism and gaining violent experience for Antifa newbies is the purpose of what we saw in Charlottesville. In a factual world, Antifa would have been sanctioned by Democrats for causing the violence, but that would be a response of a true American government, not the collectivist hellhole it has become.

Today, the question is not whether or not one is a racist, but whether or not one is a collectivist, because the way the issue has been framed by the collectivists in government and the media is that if you are not one of them you are by definition a racist, or an Islamophobic or homophobic, because that is the way they intend to destroy not only you as a traditional American (of whatever color) but the traditional America and seize complete control of the nation. When they achieve that, complete control, the real killing will begin, so answer that question carefully. It is the Jihadist (and why they like them so much) question: "Convert or die?"

A Government In Rebellion

The USA is a failed state. It was charged at its founding to protect and defend the borders. Fail. It was charged with securing the rule of law. Fail. It was charged with securing the right of the people to be secure in their papers and effects. Fail. It was charged with protecting a citizens right to a fair trial, a thing lost in the current judicial system of trumped up charges and plea bargains. Fail. It was charged with requiring the popularly elected House of Representatives with making all legislation, that does not exist where 90% of all new legislation is considered "rules" and "regulations" and is originated and passed in committees of bureaucracies. Fail.

There is no area in which one might look where the language and intent of the Constitution is honored. This is more than just a problem, it is indicative of a failed political state. That there are those who benefit from this dysfunction is a fact, but it is not indicative of a functioning government. It is a government evolving from its intent to the opposite of its intent. Yes, it functions, but not to its purpose, which is to say if a tire is blown, with a big hole in it, it might still be used as a child's swing, but it no longer functions to its purpose.

The only purpose of the United States government is to deal with foreign powers, including native Indian tribes, settle disputes between the states and provide for the common defense. There are a few other responsibilities, but small in nature compared to those. It was not intended to have a say in every day activities of the people, to take a piece of every bit of commerce engaged in throughout the states. It was not intended to be the last say in every dispute. It was not intended to decide what cultural mores would be in effect in every state in the land. It certainly was not intended to produce government agencies with the ability to kill citizens with impunity at the behest of political officeholders. All of this and more is taking place. Why?

The United States Government is devolving from a government largely controlled by the population to a government bent on control of the population. That is a failure and until the American people come to understand that this is a government that has failed in every aspect of its charter, it will continue to devolve. There is no reconciliation available to a government impervious to the will of the people. This is what is on display when the president is attacked for pursuing the goals for which he was elected. It is a governmental rejection of the will of the people. And, since the government is only empowered by the consent of the governed, it is a government in rebellion against the people.

The people, therefore, are rightly empowered to rebel against the government. With the ultimate and intentional subversion of the will of the people through impeachment and removal of individuals given the consent to govern, the government bureaucracies will be in open rebellion against the people, a condition encouraged and supported in all collectivist governments, but wholly intolerable to those who claim to be a REPUBLIC.

One Day

There have been a lot of times when I have been ready to step off the porch and take up the torch of American freedom, but always I have been counseled that I am jumping too quick. Okay, I am the sort of barroom brawler that you would expect of oilfield trash, so my temper is often too short and my feet too quick to move, but as I have grown older, I have learned to take good counsel from others and submerge my more spontaneous instincts.

And, in the past, they have been right, it was too early, but that does not mean that the injustices weren't real, or that they didn't deserve a response, only that few others would have reacted the way I would and I would have been standing out there by myself, with no sympathy, with no support, just swinging alone and ridiculed by those who should have been standing next to me. Which harkens back to the concept of the initial Declaration of Independence, when it was understood that they either hung together or they would surely hang separately.

There is a moment when a government becomes so corrupt that it can no longer be tolerated by the people and I suggest that we are there. It is much more openly corrupt today than it has ever been. The Democrat Party is literally at war with the Republican President, not just angry at him, not just disappointed they didn't win, they have decided that he cannot be president. Well, what does that mean? When has that ever been true in American political history? It is exactly the reaction they found incomprehensible when they accused Trump of refusing to recognize the election if he lost.

The gloves are off. The media has openly chosen sides and are operating as a publicity machine for the coup. Understand that, they are providing aid and comfort to the conspirators to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States. Words don't have the power to convey the level of treason that is being played out before our eyes, in the headlines, with absolutely no repercussions from the Republicans in office. NONE.

But, at some point it stops being THEIR government and we have to step in and reclaim it, we have to decide what traitors will be allowed to get away with. It is our money they are wasting, it is our rules they are violating, it is our government they have commandeered and turned against us. Trump is irrelevant, people get hung up on not wanting to support Trump. Trump exposed them and their attitudes toward us, the people, the ones being forced to pay taxes to this money-laundering operation we call the U.S. Congress.

And, yeah, I will listen to those voices a little longer and let Trump and his administration try and deal with this corruption, but I don't have any expectations for his success. It is too far down the road, the mid-level bureaucrats have full control and they protect their own and punish their detractors. Mike Cernovich is catching all kinds of flak for pointing out that McMasters is a traitor and a plant.

Matt Bracken called it out right the other night on Hagmann, if you bothered to listen to the broadcast. You put Comey, Mueller and Rosenstein together and you find them in massive rebellion against the rule of law, just simply disregarding felonies and then McMaster comes along as a strong ally and reinstates Susan Rice's security clearance. When asked about it he said it was normal to do that. Well, Susan Rice is not a "normal" person and has not acted in a "normal" way in office, so, NO, he didn't have to renew that security clearance and shouldn't and having done so, he put himself in the "corrupt" category.

Where this goes past the government is these security leaks, these unmaskings, is putting this nation, meaning the ground I own, the people I love, in danger from outside forces. Open rebellion among the cities and states that claim "sanctuary" status for criminals are putting the property I own and the people I love in danger. Allowing jihadists into the nation out of some self-serving idea of compassion (understanding that is all propaganda) places the property I own and the people I love in danger. Just because it has not yet visited me personally, doesn't mean that it doesn't affect me.

The whole idea of a nation with armed forces is to protect all of that and if they either will not or cannot, then it is up to me to decide when I need to do so for myself. That is the part where the enemies of freedom have made so many gains, where this nation has been allowed to turn to a Soviet-style system, it is in accepting the idea that the government has to do all of these things for us and then all they have to do is refuse.

So, that's what you have to do for yourself, figure out how much corrupt government you are willing to pay for. You have to decide whether the collectivists in this nation are going to complete the conversion, or if you are going to stand up and deny them their prize. It's not like these questions are going to be asked of you sometime in the future, they are being asked of you today. Every time you sit by and watch another Hillary conspirator get her security clearance back after committing felonies against the security of this nation, you have to ask yourself these questions. One day the answer will be different from today and then it is time to do something.

Who are the people who are watching the crimes take place without consequence in society? They are the railroad employees, the truck drivers, electricians, mechanics, garbage collectors, etc. Now, ask yourself who it is that makes life possible for those who commit those crimes against this nation? Without breaking the law or hurting anyone you have the incredible power of persuasion at your hands (literally). All you have to do is one day decide that you are going to make things difficult for those who would gladly and enthusiastically put you in jail and destroy your life for nothing other than coming up against them politically.

DVDs Shipped Today

I thought, for all of those who stop by here to see what is happening with the film, I would let them know that of the perks earned during the fundraising events, 98% of all DVDs were shipped today. The other 2% will go tomorrow, but those are mostly from 2-10 copies being shipped, which had to be dealt with differently (bigger packages) than the 180 singles that could be mass processed. They are not particularly good pictures, but pictures of the cover art are below.
http://12roundproductions.com/store/cl/lies-of-omission-dvd                             http://12roundproductions.com/store/cl/lies-of-omission-dvd

The cover art isn't cut or professional, yet, but I thought some would like to see how it looks.

A very sincere thanks to everyone who dug deep in their pockets and had to trust that we could actually accomplish what we set out to do. The only rough spots were some financing issues that would occasionally spring up, but then we just waited until we had enough to do it. A lot of strings had to be pulled and a lot of people had to work for next to nothing, or literally nothing, some are still in negative territory and probably always will be, but it exists and it is not without the help, encouragement and willingness to trust of many, many of the people who read this blog, WRSA, Patrick Henry Society, David's work, Matt's novels, Claire's books and Sipsey Street Irregulars and followed our efforts after that site went dark and who followed the important writing of Mike Vanderboegh.

We hoped that it would be a tool for parents and grandparents to spread around the nursery, but there is plenty in there for neighbors and liberal relatives (but make them buy their own, or better, as a Christmas gift or birthday present). Seriously, this is a conversation starter and DO NOT fail to bring their attention to http://liesofomission.com where multitudes of support for the claims made in the film are being warehoused to debunk their debunkery, or for interested folks to read deeper and understand more about their world. Kit Perez and Pete White did an excellent job compiling that mass of information and it ties directly into the film.

So, thanks and if you still have a little energy, pump it up on social media sites. We have no distributor as yet and are trying to get one before we put out on VOD.

TL

This Is Not The United States

There are all sorts of words to use to describe the mess the United States has turned into and keep in mind the United States is not America. America is where we live, it is outside on the porch under a summer sky; it is the used car in the back and the fridge on the porch; it is bug-zappers dangling from the post. The United States is a political construct, a simple agreement between long-dead ancestors.

To the extent that the Constitution arranged the agreement and sought at the same time to set out some ground rules as far as what the federal government would take care of (mostly external issues at the time) and what states would take care of, it worked, initially. Apparently, as long as no one ever questioned it, it continued to work, but when Bill Clinton (as Pete at WRSA pointed out) violated the oath with the absolute challenge to be stopped, the gig was truly up. What we have had since then is a sort of building police state.

What is the technical moment when the Constitution failed? Maybe that goes as far back as Theodore Roosevelt when he decided that it would be a good idea to occupy huge swaths of the Western states. Make no mistake, these are not states in the same way another state might have 3-5% federally-owned land somewhere as an island in the mass of privately-owned land. Western states are between 35-85% federally-owned lands. That is an occupation and I often refer to the Western states as the Occupied States of America.

Definitely, the Constitution had failed by the time Woodrow Wilson was supported by all of the big interests in oil, steel, railroad and banking. Having recognized how detrimental a president could be after Roosevelt leaned on these interests, they were going to have nothing to do with a "trust buster" like William Jennings Bryan and I am not saying that Bryan would have been any better, he had his own problems. It was a time of big unions and big corporations and the battles taking place between them, so going whole commie at the time might not have been the best move, either. It was a time very much like this one, where there are no good alternatives, the distant powers figured out that it was easier to buy a president than to ward off the federal government and America has never been the same.

But, the United States is not America. The land will live on beyond this political construct and the people will live on beyond the United States as well. This is OUR government, it is not theirs. We have let them run things and they have run them off a cliff. The Constitution survived as long as it could, perhaps. If it had the power to repair itself, it would have. If the people we have elected to office had any reverence for it at all, they would repair it, but it should be obvious to anyone paying attention that they are incapable of doing anything for the people. The people have been relegated to supplying the cash for their boondoggles at the threat of prison. I don't care how beautifully one writes the 16th Amendment into law, it is an abomination. It was passed and it was ratified and it was the biggest mistake the people of that century ever made, but there is no reason for us to obey it.

We are at that place in America where no agency of the government is going to abide by ANY of the Amendments to the Constitution that we do not defend with our lives and our firearms. Do you really think the Second Amendment would have survived without all of those unwilling citizens out in the hinterlands that have demonstrated that they will put up a fight? This nation would have long ago caved into the demands of a dictator were it not for that.

The real question is this: If you cannot preserve the ideals of individual freedom and free market trade with your neighbor via this political construct, how many collectivists do you have to kill to finally be left alone?

Fear, Imprisonment or Death

We know there is a war coming, but very few have thought what that will really be like. And, no one really knows what that will be like, including myself. We don't even know what it is going to start over, or where, so how could we possibly know what it will be like? But, we do have previews from a few recent European-style wars like Bosnia.

There are some folks who have a plan good enough to cover for a number of scenarios. It's good to have food and water. It's good to have some weapons and some planning about when and how to use them. But, that is really the crux of the issue anyway, isn't it? When?

It doesn't matter what we all loved about America way back when, it is not and will never be the same. We have entered some end game from whence there is no escape. If the liberals/commies finally got rid of Trump, a coup, no matter how well disguised or placed in front of the television as a necessary step to save the nation, it will be a coup against conservatives having their say. This is why so many globalist Republicans are up for it. Forget Trump, their rebellion is against the rule of law. It is against accountability and the more they can bring into their game of corruption, the safer they feel. The dangerous part of America today, is being honest.

It was only about a decade ago when Hugo Chavez nationalized the oil fields and the equipment, billions of dollars of rigs and support equipment. That was going to solve all of their economic problems, if they just didn't have greedy gringos sucking all of the funds out of the nation, it would be prosperous and vital. Guess not. This is not exactly where America is headed in every aspect, but it is where it is headed economically.

There are few who read this blog who are dyed in the wool Trumpists, simply because looking toward any political figure as a solution borders on retarded. But, looking toward politicians that would be worse than anything Americans can conceive of and going the other way is completely understandable. So, it doesn't matter who you voted for, if you did at all. This isn't about Trump, but one thing a bunch of people had better understand is that when they overthrow him, it will time to crank up the wreckage machine.

Understand, they are refusing us to have a say, to decide who will or will not enter the nation. These are the people who will quietly open the borders to anyone they see fit and if it goes down in flames the way Venezuela did, they will shake their heads and call it a failure of capitalism, or racism, or republicanism and it wouldn't have happened in a democracy. As stupid as that sounds, you can hear the echoes across the airwaves right now.

People spend way too much time trying to figure out what it all means. You don't have to know what it all means, all you have to know is what it means to you. They aren't trying to topple Trump, because they hate him, they are trying to topple Trump, because he is a symbol of us, the dirt people, the unwashed, the racists (and what they define as racism is white, no other explanation needed). The white Republicans hate us almost as much as the communists/socialist/liberals do. It's hard to tell the difference anymore, they are that far out on a ledge.

This is the last they ever want to deal with a Republican in office, which means they just want us to shut up. As Mike Vanderboegh said in LIES OF OMISSION, "...a collectivist defines peace as the silence of their enemies, through fear, imprisonment or death. That's how they define peace." That is exactly what they have planned, what they have been practicing and it is now time to go quietly into the ditch, or wake the hell up and oppose these petty tyrants.

American Hammer and Sickle

Incremental  collectivism is difficult to spot; it is sloth-like in its deliberation, but it does move and sometimes it helps to look back down the road to see how far it has come. Maybe that's also the only way to see where it's going.

Americans continue to think they live in a republic, but the republic is alive only when the Constitution is being faithfully read and adhered to, not when it is largely disregarded or interpreted into nothingness, especially where case law is considered "settled."

What clause allows for an establishment of a Department of Education? Well, the "necessary and proper" clause, of course. Except that the necessary and proper clause only applies to those limited powers enumerated in the body of the Constitution. Same with the "Commerce Clause" they have used to implement all manner of collectivism.

So, we discover that a school board dumps Common Core and grades soar in that school district. The point is that all of these things government takes control of are not simply mismanaged or screwed up, it is the intended purpose of these programs to deaden the senses of the people, encourage stupidity and make them open to the propaganda for collectivism and generally wear down the power of individualism and capitalism, while blaming individualism and capitalism for the dysfunction the government program is intentionally creating.

Our treasury is swamped by collectivist programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, pensions and everything government has promised to provide for the people. Collectivists will point to the military budget as the culprit that dominates the budget, but it is the promises made to future generations that will bring the system down. This is because we allowed the con to be played. The military budget is huge, but largely due to the fact that it protects every socialist government in the Western world, who do not bother to build up their own military defenses when they can count on the United States military power to defend them against Russia or China or both. Since we have gone socialist, we will not be able to do that for them or ourselves.

And, they will blame individualism and capitalism for the failures of socialism and collectivism. Eventually, this inevitability plays out. Who will defend the principles that allowed the United States to grow from a small, largely agrarian nation to the powerful industrial defender it has been for the past hundred plus years?

We are at a point now where former CIA Directors suggest a coup against the sitting President of the United States and the collectivist press cheers the idea on. And yet, this treason is allowed. That is how far we have come toward a collectivist state. The whole layer of government just below the surface is rabid communist and it took someone like Trump to expose them. But, we do nothing about it, we look on in curiosity, because it is the President's task to do something with his entire law enforcement apparatus available to him.

Or, we just throw up the hammer and sickle.

The Trajectory of Collectivism

There is a reason certain things don't make sense. Here we are, all of us (humans) currently in a moment of time when nothing makes sense. This is always preparatory to war. In other words, things are not progressing in a rational way, but the nature of things have been hijacked and directed to the benefit of only a few.

When nature is progressing it is almost always to the benefit of the greater majority. As example, when the greatest number of human beings are toiling to their own benefit, the future progresses along one line, when those same human beings are being directed to the benefit of only a few, it progresses along another.

For example: the pyramids. The whole of society for generations had to be directed toward the construction of the pyramids in Egypt to create something that immense at that time. The individual slave did not benefit, but the existence of the pyramids have inspired awe and wonder at the society that built them. How many other huge endeavors were inspired by the fact that the pyramids existed in proof of what was possible?

While the average Joe (me) simply wants to take advantage of the opportunities that better life for himself and his family and does work that other people need done in order to make life better for them and their families, the elites look at that life and see waste: effort and time that could better be spent elsewhere to the benefit of (as they see it) of society. That they fail or refuse to see that their vision is selfish and cruel is beside the point.

The elites of today envision themselves modern day Pharaohs willing to enslave us all for their grand vision. What is that vision? Who knows? Who cares? The fact that they feel entitled to redirect our lives to serve their vision is enough for me, because in order to achieve their vision our lives must be redirected through voluntary financial benefit or force and either one will work for them.

The first thing they want to destroy is the concept of individual self-determination; which is the only goal, in my mind, worth pursuing. It is the fact that I see this as the goal and they see it as an obstacle that propels us toward conflict.

Unfortunately, when individuals are concentrated on pursuing their own individual goals of self-determination it creates a vacuum that attracts those who envision aggregating that energy, that resource, as they see it and putting it to use to build a pyramid of their design. So it is an inevitable cycle toward war.

The collectivist is unable to see individuals as valuable, it is only in the aggregate that humanity has any purpose at all. They require that the bulk of humanity be dedicated to their vision and the others, the individualists who cannot be directed, must be eliminated by one method or another. The hive mentality is one indicator of alignment of individualism toward the collective. The more the hive rejects anything that does not benefit the collective, the closer we are to conflict.

Viewing the media and the Congress through this filter lets you know how far along the continuum we have come. The Republicans in Congress are not interested in revering individual liberty, they are focused on adjusting the trajectory of collectivism. To that extent the experiment of the United States has failed. It cannot be fixed. The small doses of collectivism, or individual cooperation, that were necessary to build the infrastructure for extended liberty have consumed the host and the goal of liberty is lost.

The Subterfuge of Socialism

If you feel like you are being attacked every time you walk out the door, you are.  The part of freedom that no one born after the 1970's can possibly understand is how much our fellow citizens, at the behest of their collectivist puppet masters, have entered our lives and decided what we were able to say, think and do. This is a direct attack, not on your house, or your car, but on you specifically as a human being.

People like to think about the government as an amoeba, but it is populated by your neighbors, the ones who go to meetings and the PTA. They are the sort of people who lust after a spot on the Home Owners Association board. As I have said elsewhere, the people in power are hardly ever the people who should be. There is a particular mental disorder that seeks power, most of them are rapists and vandals. This is not aimed at cops, but it does not exclude them either.

To a great degree I am talking about the three RINO county commissioners in Custer County, CO, but not only them either. They are a symptom of what has begun as a sneaking communism that Matt Bracken pointed out in Lies of Omission, the Gramscian theory of communism that hides very well inside socialism until, like an ALIEN, pops out of the chest, having consumed the heart of the community.

For far too long the citizens of this nation have allowed the socialist/communist faction to thrive inside this republic and all for some very good reasons to start with, but those reasons are looking worse all the time. One of them is the idea that no matter who put forth the idea of socialism, that no American would ever go along with it, so let them talk, let them destroy themselves. That hasn't worked very well, because there are an incredible amount of idiots and bonus-seekers bred into America through accepting socialist concepts like Social Security and Medicare, two embedded debt bombs just waiting for enough people to gather around before they go off and kill everyone.

What I am getting at is that communism has been allowed to flourish in this nation as some form of benevolent socialism for a hundred years, all the way back to Woodrow Wilson, a president bought and purchased by the big "trusts" of the previous century, without regard to his politics, which were ultimately devastating, because they were intentionally so. Read anything Wilson wrote and you will see the roadmap for how we got here.

Yes, we are all to blame, because we thought freedom was being free, that exercising freedom was the whole point of it all. We walked our own paths, expecting to be left alone, expecting common decency and mutual respect. That made us easy targets for those seeking something for nothing. Our Christian nature of charity handed them another lever to the public treasury. With all the benevolence of trying to mind our own business, we threw the doors open to the Church and the treasury. Is it any wonder that we have been defrauded by communist pastors and robbed by everyone else?

They have slowly backed those who knew how to use freedom into a corner and it's time to come out swinging. Being quiet has not stopped them and to be honest, screaming won't do any good either. What we see when we look out at our lawns and shiny cars is a nation already divided into the payers and the payees. The payees not only want to take everything you have, they are looking for payback for all the injustices of being a payee, short of getting a job or shutting their mouths. They are looking for the people who built this nation and want to make them pay; they want to insult them as much as break their bones.

I bring up Custer County, CO simply because it is a county that is about 80% conservative Constitutionalists and it has been completely hijacked by fraudulent candidates, liberals who know they could not win a seat in the county as a Democrat, so they switch their party affiliation and vote to pass vicious liberal ordinances to confound and demoralize the citizens. That's the mentality we have been dealing with while we tried to pursue the simple pleasure of life without having a confrontation at ever stop we make.

The crux is, one cannot be a socialist and have no agenda, the whole agenda of socialism is communism. That is the subterfuge of socialism; it is a trick and a lie. That just ain't neighborly. When I was a kid I heard one axiom that made a lot of sense, good fences make good neighbors. Maybe today it has to change like everything else. How about this: Good fences and firearms make good neighbors.

And, lest I be too vague, 80% of Repubicans are liberals, socialists and communists, they just don't understand the definition. Our nation has turned into a cesspool of communism, this is a Soviet-style system already, so maintaining the Soviet nature of it does not make one a conservative or even a patriot.

Another Day, Another Wray

Watching Chris Wray answering questions before the Senate confirmation hearing gave me flashbacks to every other piece of work to sit in that chair.  Mueller, Freeh and Comey come to mind.  Who was the FBI Director during Fast and Furious? Mueller.  Who was the FBI Director during the subsequent investigation of the siege at Waco? Freeh. So, we look at that astounding record of incompetence or outright malfeasance and Chris Wray looks no different.

I don't know Wray's history, nor do I care.  The enduring fact is that the FBI is a cesspool filled with cover-ups, withheld information and obstruction of justice.  They have never successfully brought the truth to the American people through all of the scandals that have taken place, it has always been a court of law where wrongful deaths had been adjudicated that brought forth the truth of the Ruby Ridge incident. It was the wrongful deaths being adjudicated that brought out the truth of the Waco siege.  None of this was revealed due to a rigorous FBI investigation.

So, someone like Chris Wray, who had been in the agency during Fast and Furious, Clinton's treasonous email sieve, leaving all sorts of classified information open to enemy discovery and willing dupe sitting idly by while Mueller goes after Trump(ed) up charges of Russian collaboration while clear and intentional collaboration between Ukraine and the Clinton campaign were ignored by the agency, does not inspire confidence.

During the hearing there were plenty of opportunities for Wray to put Democrat Senators on notice that when and if he is confirmed that he would pursue any and all charges of collaboration with a foreign state or state actors, regardless of political affiliation, but instead, he lent credence to the notion that somehow, somewhere there might still be evidence of Russian collusion on behalf or to the benefit of Donald Trump.

When America could use a little sanity and a little justice in the Justice Department, Wray seems like just another suit ready to play ball with those willingly trying to destroy this nation, to pursue a Barack Hussein policy of cultural self-destruction.

Now is the time for some hard truths, some revelations of wrongdoing in the FBI, a sort of come to Jesus moment for which he seems completely incapable. The FBI has been destroyed by scandals and government corruption. Understand, the last Director, it is now known revealed classified information in memos designed to get an independent investigator to look into the faux scandal of Russian collaboration with Trump.

We have seen this dog and pony show already. The question really is not where Sessions and Rosenstein came up with Wray, but whether or not they had a choice of anything other than Wray or a Wray-like figure, who admitted during the hearing that he was listening very carefully for Trump to suggest something inappropriate in exchange for his nomination. What sort of garbage is that? That is someone who considers themselves above the President, who is motivated to restrain or restrict the President's wishes and blame his "inappropriateness" on Wray's insubordination or perhaps even betrayal. That's not the sort of thing that gives one comfort. We have already had enough of these self-serving directors who willingly betray the American people for political points.

This is what is wrong with the entire federal government. None of them carry any sense of responsibility to the American people. They will protect their buddies in the agency and withhold evidence of criminal behavior from the public. They do it in the IRS, the FBI, the ATF, the NSA, etc, etc. Since this is so obvious to anyone paying attention, it is time to get to the bottom of some of the scandals of the previous administration, to restore some sense of accountability, but Wray won't do it and the public is left to just consider them all a bunch of crooks and gangsters with badges.

But, I guess, it is their credibility and if they want to destroy it's up to them. But, having already done that to a great degree, they must just not give a whit what the public thinks of them.

This Is Diligence

What is the price of liberty? Diligence. Nowhere is this more evident than in Custer County, CO where liberty, Second Amendment rights and freedom are jealously guarded by the people who have watched their sleepy mountain town become overrun by liberal shopkeepers and politicians. But, they are fighting back.

Our nation, meaning our backyards, is awash with Gramscian collectivism. Gramsci understood that the leadership of the nation was not as important as the leadership of the school board. This is an idea that has taken root in America. Yes, it's nice to have the governor collaborate with ones efforts to subvert the concept of individual liberty, but it can be done in so many other ways that are more effective.

We are so far down this road it is almost impossible to see clearly at this point. Why is there forced recycling? Why have Homeowners Associations been so popular? On one hand yes, no one wants to live next to a dump and the idea of city ordinances are appealing to protect the property values of others in the neighborhood, but that is just the starting point. Through city ordinances patriotism can be effectively outlawed, through school boards history can be changed and manipulated to serve the goals of the collective.

Eventually, as in Custer County, CO, there is an ordinance concerning "light pollution" where the three RINO county commissioners, having been elected on the pretext that they were Republican conservatives, revealed themselves as the all-controlling collectivists that they are when they passed the ordinance that made it illegal to fix an outdoor light in an effort to eradicate "light pollution."

Keep in mind, this is a rural mountain county, where bears and other dangerous wildlife roam the hills. Rural areas are often the target of criminals from the cities, or drug addicts looking for quick score who recognize these areas as vulnerable due to lack of policing and the fact that they most likely contain several firearms necessary to defend ones property and lives. What on earth would they need a yard light for?

But, this is typical collectivism. It makes no logical sense until one realizes that control is the real issue, not light pollution (which is a stupid concept in itself) or any other cause. It is conditioning toward the collective authority rather than individual liberty. It is the same with cities and utilities, who make deals with high-priced "green energy" concepts knowing that it is not their money that is being pledged. They merely raise taxes and fees to cover whatever inefficiency and expense that accompanies these obligations.

It is about removing the concept of the citizen, or the subscriber to have a say in how their money is spent, or what level of service to expect. Look for any point of control and you will find a collectivist at the table. They really like the positions where they might extend their middle finger to those who pay their salary. That is the collectivist cherry.

In Custer County, they may have jumped the gun, because Ann Bathrop and Ann Willson have begun a recall petition for all three RINOs over their actions since all three collectivists arrived on the commission and began to pursue their collectivist agenda including the ordinance against "light pollution." This is a clever recall, because it can effectively replace the County Commissioners during a regular election, avoiding the cost to the county of a special election.

This is diligence.

The mother and daughter dynamic duo were not political experts and relied on the counsel of a lawyer and a great deal of research into both state and county regulations regarding recalls, what papers to file, how to get the questions on the ballot and with whom to replace the offending officials. As far as anyone knows it is the first time that all three County Commissioners have been recalled during the same election. But, they have a lot of petitions to distribute and a lot of signatures to collect before this is a done deal, but it is a pleasure to see Claire Wolfe's concept of taking back our own freedoms playing out in this mountain community.

When I go to Westcliffe, I rely on George Gramlich to let me know which businesses are run by "friendly" proprietors and which are not, because there is no sense giving my money to someone who would enslave me and serve that enslavement up with an extended middle finger. When I was there last, I had the pleasure to meet the two Anns and discuss with them their project. I offered, that if I lived there, I would be happy to take the petitions around on my crutches if I could.

The Loss of Big Ideas

What is the cost of socialization; of regulation; of Stalinization? Consider for a moment how many government agencies were created just in your lifetime. Consider also that from around 1900, a bit before and a bit after, the internal combustion engine was created, electric automobiles, steam automobiles, the airplane, electric lights, the telephone, indoor plumbing, etc, etc, etc all the way up to nuclear weapons and Nasa rockets in the 1960's. Even the television and the internet were invented before 1970 even if the internet was in a very basic form. The silicon Chip was even invented in 1961.

What has been created since 1970? No new propulsion systems. Even the hydrogen fuel cell either works with an internal combustion engine or creates electricity to power the automobile. What has happened to that great entrepreneurial spirit? That creativity? Are we to understand that the only thing we have been able to develop in the nearly same 60 year period after 1960 are government programs? Everything we have today was invented before 1970.

Okay, yeah, we have made the telephone much smaller and have been able to combine it with the internet, but it is still either one or the other. They are developments of the same old ideas. All we have done is embellish.

Here's what I think and I have no empirical evidence of this, just a sense that all of the brains and creativity that once were the hallmark of the Western cultures have been co-opted to serve the manipulation of those cultures. They have gone into the "green" industries, but still have never been able to make anything really work, because they are not designed to work, or solve any particular problem, they are designed to plunder the treasuries.

What do wind generation or solar generation really accomplish? They displace workers, because it is not enough that we have solar or wind energy, but that we stop using fossil fuels which require massive amounts of human labor. Robotics? Eliminate workers. The idea is to bankrupt as many people as they can, so that they are reliant on government benefits. It is a means of slavery.

What are the globalists doing? Building bomb shelters.

What have we lost since they have been engaged in this diversion of talent? The big universities are much more interested in defining new genders than finding a new means of propulsion. Entrepreneurs are all looking for the next hot app, instead of the next mode of transportation. Scientists are trying to figure out how to get to Mars, or how to cure ED.

Where are the big ideas? It's almost as if bringing Western civilization down is of much greater importance than doing something remarkable.

Some say that alien technology fueled the 1960's and we have exhausted that reservoir of innovation. Others say that saving the planet is of much greater importance than any other source of innovation.

I think it is a bit more simple. The massive regulations imposed on industry have stifled almost all of the individual inspiration. Either through corporate protectionism or government regulation there really is no way to pursue big ideas.

Maybe, we are just getting too stupid or high to innovate. But, those are within the realm of societal manipulation. The average child in school is only allowed to repeat the mantras of their captors. Innovation comes from independent, creative thinking, unbridled dreaming with the real possibility of pursuing some vision to ultimate financial reward.

No, I don't have any answers or even know if I understand the real issues at play. What I do know is that nothing has been developed or created that has changed our world in the decades between 1970 and 2017 and that has left us stranded in 1960, rehashing old rivalries, hatreds and prejudices and finding ways to damage each other.

We are drugged, distracted and self-absorbed while the world is being remade socially and culturally to our detriment. Our demise is being orchestrated, not just the Western cultures, but all of them, because eventually we will wind up going at it with each other and decimating the populations of every nation, leaving those who have been trying to achieve the same thing through abortion and wars to reap the benefits of a massively depopulated world.

I know everyone has their own idea about what is going on and who is doing it, the Bilderbergers, or the Illuminati or whatever. All I know is that their plan is about 20 moves beyond anything we doing to stop it.

Westcliffe July 4th and DVD Update

I will be attending the Westcliffe, CO 4th of July parade along with other open carry advocates. This event will be in honor of Mike Vanderboegh and is just a good idea, even if Mike was not your cup of tea. Strong personalities often attract and repel at the same time, but there is no denying that Mike did a lot for spreading the word of liberty and freedom. Meet me there if you can, I'll be the guy on crutches.

In other business, the DVD of Lies of Omission will be coming out in the next few weeks. We tried for June, but with my accident it just took much longer to get things lined out and taken care of, so I appreciate everyone's patience. The thing you can count on is that it has gotten its final edit and it is just now a matter of getting the files to the DVD duplicators and then getting them to the fulfillment center and listed on Amazon. We are going to stick with Amazon as a sales portal and save VOD release for a later date.

As you can imagine as a first production we have gotten very little interest in distribution, so, initially anyway, we are going to have to distribute it ourselves. This means that when you get your DVD we would greatly appreciate any social media buzz you can create with your comments. There are roughly 250 DVDs that will be going out in our initial perk mailing. I can't give any dates for this until I get an estimate from the duplicators.

I don't know how successful we are going to be at getting this accepted by large outlets, since we don't have the luxury of some well connected distributor, but what we do have is a specific market to approach. Half of the voters in this country voted for Trump, but they were really voting for the values that are expressed in this film. There are a lot of people who would enjoy this film, if they knew about it. That is the next challenge.

We have stopped all of our fundraising efforts, the people in this community have been very generous in that respect and we appreciate it. Credit is given in the credits for the film for the efforts of this community. Perhaps our next project will be self-funded, but a lot of that will depend on the sales of this one, of course. We are trying to build a self-sustaining enterprise for the distribution of these ideas.

We need to think out of the box on getting this DVD in the hands of as many people as we can. Yes, advertising is part of it, but that is a little bit down the road. We will be contacting everyone we know in the media and doing the sorts of things normally done by a distributor, but any help we can get from people who have seen the DVD will be very important as well. Social media, as much as I have detested it and disrespected it, hype on Facebook and Twitter do a lot to raise the awareness of a project like this. Repeated tweets and posts about the film will go a long way if we can extend that to those who have seen it and liked it.

Thank you for all of your support.

The Error of Civility

Susan Collins, Senator from Maine just tweeted that the three branches of government and the media need to be civil. Well, that's the problem, even senators consider, in some way, the media to be a part of the government. That is evident in more ways than one, it is why Republicans often betray their own base, their own constituents in order to pander to the press, to appear to be good, cooperative people at a time when the media is trying to inspire assassinations of opposing politicians.

Civility is something arrived at through mutual respect and a sense of decency, something of which the collectivists are incapable. Their whole program requires the destruction of traditional American values. They couch that in a reach all the way back to the founding, as irrational to the rest of their arguments as that is. When it comes to the Constitution, it is a rag, something we as a people have overcome and put behind us, until they decide to attack Trump with it.

The call for civility is a call for surrender, because it is only the right that understands it. The collectivists work against every sense of civility. It is their tactic to assault civility, to thrust their hedonism in the faces of Christians, to attack the traditional marriage by expanding the definition into meaninglessness.

I see no reason to be civil to those who profit on the deaths of hundreds of thousands of unborn; who clamor for the assassination of the President; who actively promote the annihilation of white people and couch their racism in some sense of reparations for the acts of white ancestors. As sick and evil as I viewed the Obama Administration for its actions in targeting conservative groups with the power of the IRS or the deaths of thousands of Mexicans during Fast and Furious, a planned, designed policy to let them die at the hands of drug dealers directly armed by the feds, I never even considered the answer to these acts would be assassination. Those are the thoughts of thugs and criminals, especially because they have used it.

This is the error of civility. While the right has continued to pursue a civil discourse with what can only be considered a death cult of the left, civil rights have disappeared, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of association have all but been eradicated. It is a stupid, one-sided game encouraged by those on the right, who have actually aligned themselves with the left and use the concept of civility as bludgeon against their own side. It is an act of fratricide.

If ever there was a political condition in the United States where incivility were the appropriate response, it is now. The collectivists, especially the media, is on open warfare against the very principles of the republic. Their goal, their rally cry is a turn toward communism. It is reflected in their Democratic convention where the hammer and sickle flew in the absence of the stars and stripes. There is no dispute about this, except by the office holders who occasionally have to raise their hands and swear allegiance to a system they are determined to destroy.

Civility is reserved for those who deserve respect, to offer it to the base, crude and rude is an error and a denial of its very value.

Betrayal

Custer County, CO has long been a beacon of liberty in this country, not just Colorado, because the citizens there have taken back their own liberty, have established that crucial cooperation between armed citizens and law enforcement, have realigned their county commission to reflect their political views and have established their own rival "conservative" newspaper to speak to the majority. All of this in a town of about 800 people.

Custer Country, is, in a lot of ways, a model of what should be taking place across the nation. We all know that the local papers pursue a liberal agenda, even if they are deep in conservative territory. I imagine they believe themselves the agents of illumination in the darkened areas of rural America. Or, they are simply evil collectivists pursuing their agenda in an attempt to eradicate any tendency toward capitalism, freedom and self-determination. It doesn't matter what motivates them, the result is the same.

George Gramlich and Custer County have fought back and even when one tells themselves that "we can't vote ourselves out of this" that cannot be used as a reason to do nothing at all. As you will see in the article in the Sangre de Cristo Sentinel, electing "Republican" county commissioners does not always do the trick, because collectivists operate in the world with deception, intrigue and force.

George Gramlich has been a force in Custer County in many ways, eventually starting the Sangre de Cristo Sentinel to counter the collectivist swill coming from the local paper. George did what few others have had the vision to do and challenged the collectivists directly. He was instrumental in swinging the County Commission from liberal to conservative, only to be sold out by the communist tactic of deception. When the newly elected "Republican" commissioners got a chance to act, they revealed themselves as collectivist proxies. The collectivists do this, because they know they will not get a Democrat elected.

This is the part of the equation so many in the liberty community fail to understand, embrace or act upon. There is only battle, on every front, or surrender. This is why I have aligned myself with people like George and encourage and assist his efforts in any way I can. It is part of the reason we held the "works in progress" screening in Canon City. I might agree that "there is no voting our way out" but what I see all too often is total surrender.

Claire Wolfe is a huge proponent of this sort of activism, taking back liberty one county at a time, because it is our communities that matter. What goes on in D.C. affects us, no doubt, but without flushing the whole city, there is no stopping the egregious abuses. But, what happens in our own communities affects us more and we do have the ability to do something about that, if we will do it.

Elections are an expression of intent, nothing more. The real work, the hard work, is in holding those elected accountable for their actions. This is what Custer County is engaged in now, they will work to recall those elected officials who used subterfuge to get elected only to vote counter to their promises. And, yes, start the process all over again, but we only have RINOs in this nation because the citizens don't have a plan for that betrayal and we've seen it enough to expect it by now.

On the 4th of July, Westcliffe, in Custer County, CO, will hold their annual open carry contingent in the parade. It is a great opportunity to show those collectivists in the county that the right to keep and bear arms will not be infringed. This year it will be dedicated to the memory of Mike Vanderboegh, who attended one of these events in the past. In a town of 800, there were 400 open carry individuals in the contingent due to Mike and his participation.

One Possible Solution

The media is clamoring for Donald Trump's head figuratively and in some cases literally as in their wide publicizing of a play depicting the assassination ostensibly of a Trumplike Caesar or in the more grotesque depiction of Kathy Griffin holding up a severed head. This is not just media publicity, this has gone to the point of advocacy for the assassination of a sitting president.

There is a significant difference between the actions of a few misguided individuals threatening to assassinate Barack Obama and the open hostility and encouragement of the assassination by the loudest voices in the nation. It is what Matt Bracken calls, in the film Lies of Omission, "ginning up furor and fervor among the loose wingnuts out there" for the assassination of Trump.

Now, whether it is the media clamoring for Trump's assassination, or the leftists judges ruling unconstitutionally to deny Trump the power of the presidency, or the collectivists of both parties trying to challenge every action of the president and pursuing impeachment options, it is all designed simply to deny a legally elected president the power of the presidency. They don't mind if he holds the office, or lives in the White House, what they will not allow is for him to fulfill executive duties.

This is treason, but it is much more than that, it is the initial stages of a civil war, because if they think they are going to be able to run Trump out of town on a rail with no consequences they are sadly and destructively mistaken. These are actions being taken against the system, not just Trump. They have a narrow focus on a single man, but they forget that Trump has millions and millions of followers and even more that recognize this violation of civil society as treasonous and who will join with the Trumpsters, whether they ever agreed with him or not, because it is a very dangerous precedent that cannot be allowed to succeed.

Those whom we elect must be allowed to fulfill their duties, or there is no use in voting.

The dynamic is simply this: Donald Trump was elected because Hillary Clinton is the head of a criminal organization and because the traditional Republican voter had been sold out by establishment Republicans one too many times. So, they chose the one person who was actually talking about defending this nation, protecting the borders and helping the private sector create jobs. That's why he was elected and it is what the people wanted him to do. To deny him the ability to do what they had elected him to do, they place themselves in the position of advocated for the opposite.

If one were to ask what would have to happen to have a civil war in the United States, the answer would be: "prove that a great many of the people of the nation have no interest in its security, prosperity or adherence to the rule of law. It would have to be proved that voting no longer produced an outcome that the people could rely on to make the changes they sought. It would have to be demonstrated that half of the nation would never find justice or get a fair hearing in any social setting."

Take all of the legitimate means of change off the table and there remains only one possible solution: war.

Home

After a few weeks of surgeries and spending some time at my mothers house, which was closer to the hospital and the orthopedic surgeon than my place, I am finally home. I still have a considerable splint wrapped in gauze and a  pound or two of metal in my leg, but I am home.

I have always been a bit too prideful when it comes to being independent and self sufficient, that has been brought back to me in spades while I deal with this injury, unable to carry things with crutches; steps, once taken two at a time are now daunting challenges even one at a time. It is difficult watching my mother and my wife do for me the little things that keep me off my foot. I watch my wife do all the chores I used to take in stride, but now seem like mountainous achievements.

Yeah, I can get around, but it is humbling.

But, now that I am back at home and have access to the sorts of things I can do, I will be getting back to the film. Hundreds of people have given to this endeavor and they deserve to have me back at work. We have at least been accepted for the Impact DOCS Awards. We have submitted to a few other film festivals, but no word on those, yet. We have submitted to NPR's POV series, because my attitude is, give them a chance to prove their bias, it doesn't cost us anything to submit the film to them. There are many other things in the works, floating out there, waiting for me to get back in the game, so tomorrow I will be doing that.

The reason this is important and why, when those who have donated get their copies of the film it will be important to spread the word on Twitter and Facebook, is that part of what is discussed in the film is Fast and Furious. This is a scandal, the perpetrators of which have never been punished, the crimes committed never revealed to the general public. Lies of Omission is more than a film, it is a chance to revive interest in some of the scandalous actions of government that have gone by a blind media. But, a film is different, it has the power to bypass the media. Dinesh D'Souza proved that with his films and while this might never be that big, it still has that power to sidestep a hostile media.

And, I think that's what must be presented to the next generation, that the media is actually hostile to anything other than the collectivist drumbeat. No, Lies of Omission is not a hate-filled finger pointing diatribe, it is a rational description of how liberty has been lost, by who and why. It is told by those who have been in the fight, who have exposed scandals and who have struggled in anonymity to stand up to the forces oppression.

Things are moving fast in America, the media, the deep state, the warmongers are aligned against us. Yes, they focus on Trump as if getting rid of him is the answer, but what they are really against are the people who believe in what Trump has stood for, responsible immigration, lower taxes, less regulation, responsible budgets, a government not dedicated to the enslavement of the people. Trump himself is not the issue, though they pretend that he is. They are against the people who voted for him and are trying to reverse those votes. This is an organized rebellion. And, while this is not news to anyone, it is a fact and Lies of Omission is a weapon against these forces.

Treason

There is a division of the nation that cannot be repaired. While the media pretends that everything it does is out of concern for the nation, it is really out of concern for the advances toward collectivism that have been made under Barack Obama that piques their concern. The way that the media and the "deep state" cooperate to maintain those collectivist advances is startling, or would be, if anyone reported on it.

Understand that everything that has gone on since the election of Donald Trump has been to deny him the presidency, not so much the office, but the power of the office. This was evident when federal and appellate judges ruled against a clear and logical power of the President concerning national security when he signed executive orders to ban individuals from certain nations from coming to the United States largely because those individuals could not properly be vetted as to previous criminal or terrorist activity.

It is evident when certain cities refuse to obey federal law and governors and mayors openly vow to violate federal law to prevent Donald Trump from enforcing immigration laws.

It is evident when investigations into illegal acts of FBI and CIA directors, former Attorney Generals are ignored by the media and evidence withheld by the "deep state" actors while

This is more than just a difference of opinion, it is more than opposing Donald Trump as an individual. This is a rebellion against the republic in favor of a collectivist system, a government ruled society. In this nation, no matter how slim the vote totals, no matter how close the electoral college vote, whoever emerged as the President of the United States, was vested with all of the obligations, duties and power of the office.

This is an attack on the legitimacy of the election by a number of "deep state" actors determined to defend themselves from illegal actions committed under the Obama Administration. It is not a question of Donald Trump at all, except that it reveals the degree of corruption and collusion that exists between the establishment Republicans and Democrats to operate the offices of the American justice system to the detriment of the American people.

This collusion has grown into a hostile opposition to any elected official who attempts to disrupt the ongoing illegal activities of these "deep state" actors. They enlist the willing assistance of the media to demonize elected officials who seek reform. They use the media and the power of their offices to marginalize and demonize individuals who might expose their scandals or their illegal activities.

This is not to unprecedented or new by any means. What is new is that it is now open and in operational form. It is being used on a daily basis as a weapon against an "uncontrolled" President, one who has not been bought off and manipulated by the system. In a lot of ways, it is important for this president to engage this underground government and expose it for what it is: treason.

The Formula

To those who have asked and who are praying for my recovery, let me say thank you. It is difficult, I won't lie. Something about having your foot broken off is not an easy thing from which to recover, but as I lay in my bed awaiting my next surgery, hopefully on Thursday, I am not sulking in my bad fortune, but rather recognize this as a Memorial Day reflective pause.

I consider myself extremely fortunate that I have family around to help out. My mother and wife have been invaluable to me, not just now, but in all of my life. I feel like a burden and keep my requests as few and far between as I can. But, also, I think of our veterans who have suffered much more than I will ever suffer. I am not lying in a VA hospital with its infamously poor care and rationed care (basically Obamacare). I am not in Afghanistan or Iraq, thousands of miles from people who value my presence. My foot will be screwed back on (one bone left) and I will walk on my own feet again. This is much more than many of our veterans will be able to say.

And then, as I lay here, I think of what we have done to the nation for which these brave veterans have sacrificed life and limb and I am ashamed. It doesn't matter how much I have tried to preserve the liberties so casually shrugged off by our leaders and our citizens as well, I have failed to preserve them.

While visiting David Codrea, just prior to my accident, I talked of the film Lies of Omission with his boys. We talked of the value of liberty, of how if the leaders had ever once tried to defend these liberties what different lives they might be living. They, logically and intelligently, asked if it were not too late for a film like Lies of Omission to have any impact. Okay, they have me there. I had to admit that I didn't know, perhaps, but it was not too late to impart the value of those liberties and the need for young people like them to understand the efforts that have been undertaken to preserve them.

Ultimately, when there is a decision to be made as to what sort of society comes after this one, those that will offer anything other than virtual enslavement will be those societies who recognize that no matter how ill-defended, or how easily alienated, the society that values those liberties will be the one to build the strongest, most prosperous society.

Initially, yes, the most evil, violent and dictatorial society will flourish in the chaos, but it always comes down to who is fighting for what. Those fighting because they must, because they will be strung up by their officers if they don't will never fight as hard as those who fight for themselves, their lives and their dreams. Promising liberty at the end of the slog will always drive soldiers harder than the promise of punishment for failure. These are two completely different dynamics.

So, yes, we must own up to the fact that at this point in time we have failed to secure liberty to ourselves and our posterity. That those sent out to fight for freedom over the centuries have been betrayed by the insufficiently patriotic at home. That we have willingly allowed all they fought for to go undefended against the usurpers and dedicated destructionists of liberty at home.

But, anything as diseased as the system of corruptocracy that we endure at present cannot last. It will fall of its own weight, bankrupt by its own corruption, but we will always have a set of principles that can spring liberty back to life at the first opportunity. It is not so much the words on paper that will bring liberty back to life, but the understanding that within individual liberty lies the power to propel 13 small colonies to the pinnacle of world power in 200 years. That is the lesson they cannot obscure with all of their regulations and pronouncements that hobbled that innate power until it succumbed to top-heavy bureaucracy. Liberty will always produce the engine. It is a formula lying out there to be put to work whenever enough people come together to utilize it.

The Last American Presidential Election (Repost)

Reposted from 7/27/16

It should be obvious to anyone now that this will be the last presidential election in America as it exists.  With Republicans voting to nominate a non Republican as a middle finger to the GOP establishment, who, after the 2014 election gave the middle finger to their own political base and the Democrats so utterly bankrupt as to nominate someone who should be in prison the bloom is off the rose.

There is no hiding it now.  These are two political parties in the process of self-destruction.  In an effort to win political power they have created impossible and conflicting constituencies.  To the political observer it is amusing and would be hilarious were it not for the dire consequences to society as a whole.

It is a political season that encouraged Bernie the socialist to develop a proletariat army, demanding socialism at any cost.  It has exposed the media as the party hacks they have always been and there is more exposure to come as the media, not Hillary, is the real target of Donald Trump, but he is savvy enough to implicate and indict both.

The Democratic convention is nothing more than a rally cry for communism, complete with the hammer and sickle flag waving in the crowd.

Most by now should realize they are being asked a question: Which side are you on?  Some will not understand the question, but enough will and whoever wins, wins nothing, but a nation at war with itself.  This is not so much a civil war as it is a cultural free for all.  A no-holds-barred wrestling match in the streets of America.

Black Lives Matter has empowered the harshest racists to step into the spotlight and proclaim hatred as their creed, as evil and ignorant as the KKK ever was.  This is the banner and the message of the Communist/Democrat Party. The Palestinian Flag-waving anti-Semites step to the fore.  They have been accustomed to persecuting the Christians and now they have decided to branch out with their hatred for anything traditionally American.  Yes, they hate America, so much so that until shamed into it, did not even produce a single American flag at the Democratic Convention.

So, we know the communists in the Democratic party hate America while asking Americans for their vote, so the vote is clearly permission to do what any good communist nation would do, destroy America.  They speak of doing away with what is left of the Constitution with relish.  They hate America and detest the document that founded it.  How else are we supposed to interpret their ultimate victory other than as open hostility to the founding?

With this understanding, is that not the long-anticipated moment of insurgency? Is that not the moment when the battle lines are clear?

Electing Trump is a different answer to the same question.  Is that it?  This is who we have as a president?  Does he even have any leanings toward conservatism or the Constitution?  No, not really.  Donald saw what Barack Obama was able to do and is a little envious of that sort of power.  Do we get soda size legislation?  Or game show policy?

No matter who wins, or even if there is no election at all due to martial law, it is over.  It is the moment when the vast majority of Americans realize what many of us have known for a long time, that the United States is dead and it's time for the next system to rise.  By the end of this election, the question will be unmistakably asked and answered.

Sometimes, You Deserve It

My duty was to deliver a DVD of Lies of Omission to Larry Pratt, then, on the way to the screening on May 20th in Canon City, CO, I wanted to stop by David Codrea and one of our producers Eben Hawkins. Eben has been a stalwart and a dedicated part of this film. I looked forward to meeting him and talking about the film, letting him have his say as to what he thought could be better.

Eben and I spent some time roaming the hills where he lives, checking out coal mines and oil wells. A new puppy was being brought along on behavior, we had some breakfast and watched Lies of Omission. Some constructive criticism was exchanged and finally, we parted ways.

I called to see if David Codrea would be able to see me and watch the film. When he responded that he would I headed in that direction, a few hours further on and I arrived at his house. We had some single-malt and  a great conversation with his two bright and inquisitive sons. It was one of those evenings that stay with me long into my life.

So, as I headed to Colorado, feeling pretty sure that I was going to make it there in plenty of time to do some last minute "get out the vote" campaigns to drive people to the Screening we had set up. It all seemed pretty good, the film had been positively received by Eben and David and Larry hadn't had time to view it yet. I was still thinking about the phone call David made for me that put me in touch with Mark Walters of Armed American Radio, when the sun started to break over the flatlands in Eastern Colorado.

Now, I had been aware of a cold front, a snowstorm bearing down on Colorado that weekend and I had made phone calls to see how it "really" was where I was heading. But then, I was caught completely by surprise by a frozen over, Hwy 24. In less that 2 miles it went from basically dry road to a complete sheet of ice.  And, while I was able to maintain my vehicle on its path, the person approaching me did not. The minivan broke free in the back and the front end came pushing into my lane. There was no time to stop anything or swerve out of the way. There was time to brace for impact, which is what I did.

A few seconds later I was sitting in a wadded up Chevy Malibu with a broken leg, now when I say a broken leg, that isn't completely accurate. The fact is, my foot had been broken off of my leg. held in place by my boot and jeans, but there was a definite "C" shape just above my ankle that went halfway up my shin. The Tibula and the Fibula, both are necessary to hold your foot on and mine were broken off.

I don't know why this happened, all the minute decisions that went into me being on that piece of road at that time are incalculable. That whole day, when I normally drive straight through, was filled with hems and haws and delays. I stopped to sleep about 5 times, something I usually don't do, but maybe once or twice. I decided, by the looks of the road, that it would be safe to get off the interstate at Hwy 24 and go the easier, less traveled route.

Nothing ever answers the plan God has for us, all the second-guessing in the world never quite produces a satisfactory answer. Here is what I know right now, it will be close to 5 months before I will be able to put weight on my foot. What does that mean? Okay, pain, but what it tells me is that I have not been a very good husband, or son, or brother and now that my family has to pitch in to deal with this lump of flesh that can't go to the store alone, can't even go to the bathroom with questions and concerns for his health "Are you okay?" "Yeah." "Are you sure?" "Yes"

So, now that I have to be so completely reliant on everyone in my life I can only assume that God's plan for me was to humble me a little bit, but also to give me a very vivid reminder that everything in the world that is important to me can reside in a single house, in a single room and as important as the film is, it is nowhere near as important as the people I have neglected these past months.

Different Planets

If I weren't doing an anti-media film, I would almost have to make one. The insanity of the modern media is out of control. Without any evidence at all, none, the media has been on a "Russian hack" meme for months, ignoring completely the true and actual evidence of unmasking American citizens, of leaking classified information to media outlets and obstruction of justice by none other than former Director of the FBI: Comey.

It is this absolute disconnect that elected Trump in the first place, the sense that no news was getting out about the real and present dangers to people, real people, however denigrated by those on the coasts. The media claims to champion the cause of the illegal immigrants, yet turns a blind-eye to thousands being killed on the border with guns the Obama Administration helped to funnel into Mexico. And no, for their information, a gun that can get to Mexico can just as easily as a border-crosser, get back across onto the streets of America.

All right, so the bloom is off the rose already and everyone who reads this knows about the truly deadly policy of Fast and Furious, it sounds like old news already, but I maintain that if it never was news, it is news again to those who have just opened their eyes. It was like my father used to say about stupid people: every time they blink their eyes they wake up in a new world.

Most of what went on in the Obama years is still largely unknown by those who peruse the daily newspapers and watch the evening news. All of the things that I used to be hypersensitive to, that needed a little digging to uncover is now out in the open. Every time Trump sends out a tweet the media first rushes over to Senator Schumer to ask his opinion. Why? Schumer doesn't run anything, he isn't in control of anything, he is just one of 99 other senators with an opinion.

We are watching a media-orchestrated coup. They are no longer the 5th Column, they are on the front lines, firing rhetorical bullets, seeking the destruction of a duly elected president. Everyday, the meme is that Trump is out of control, perhaps nuts and the only one who can save the republic is Senator Schumer. They want to draw comparisons to Nixon, the last time they were able to take a relatively stupid move and turn it into a revolution. Maybe it was a mild revolution, but they have no intention of letting the Marxists sit on the sidelines this time.

I don't know if this time is any different from any other time, when they tried to hobble their enemies with newsprint, but they have now donned the uniform of their party and intend to engage in war. That is different. It is one thing to be a mole, a spy, it is completely another to be combatant. A small sample of the rhetoric exposes everything about their intentions.

When it comes to Trump, well, yeah, he was never going to be a raging conservative with principles and ideals. I think a lot of people have been disappointed by him, because they placed all of their hopes in him. I'm a lot more forgiving, because I didn't want Hillary in charge of the nation's law enforcement agencies. In that, he has already succeeded, but the war rages to see if they can get rid of him in 2-4 years and get someone else in charge before he has a chance to pack the court. They are the ones who need to get a victory in a very short time, that's why we have seen the full-court press since the Inauguration.

I spent some time at the Denver Press Club recently and engaged some of the reporters there and when I suggested that the media is biased, I got blank looks and shaking heads. It was not so much that they thought I was wrong as it was that they thought I was delusional. "The news?" they asked quizzically, as if it could not be true. That's when I knew we were on different planets.

The DVD Has Life

We finally have a DVD, it is not perfect and it is not quite done in the sense that all of the things that need to be done are done, but it is close. Instead of rearranging chairs on the deck of the Titanic, we are down to polishing the china. And, that isn't fair to all of the people who have worked a lot of hours and taken their time to talk to us, this is far from the Titanic. While it might not be the Queen Mary of films, it is important. There are some truly valuable pieces of information in there. I have described it as a film version of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. It may not be the most literary of works, but the shear intellectual weight of it is staggering.

We have a Screener, which can be used to obtain some valuable feedback on where the film is weak and where it is strong, what needs to be corrected and what needs to be accentuated, all of which can be done generally with a little editing, not the wheelbarrow of footage to wade through as it was from the beginning.

I know everyone has been hearing about this film for a long time and it is easy to have too great of expectations for something like this, but I believe that the perspective it takes lends itself to a greater audience than just us and those who think along the same general lines as we do. It might even go further than that and reach into some markets we would not normally consider.

The fact is, Millennials are mostly lost, angry and at the same time complacent, but they know something is coming to an end and they feel cheated for not ever having experienced the "good times" represented by many of our early lives. They have never known a time when they were not exposed to scams and held responsible for the worst times in their lives on social media. I'm not going to try and psychologically diagnose every Millennial, because they are as different as any of us, but as my daughter said, "they know they are being screwed, they just don't know exactly how or by whom." How could they? They have never been told the straight story about anything, everything has been a con, everything has been slanted and biased and it is really difficult to put total faith in anything. They are custom built for the Marxists, who are looking for people they can manipulate with a few facts and a lot of supposition.

The only thing we have to offer is the truth and that goes against almost everything they have been taught, but these are the right people to present that truth. They don't have routine talking points to be hammered over and over again, they can think for themselves and I knew that going in, that these weren't views held by them, because they were paid by the New York Times or the LA Times, or the Koch brothers for that matter. Aside from Matt Bracken, Claire Wolfe and David Codrea, none of them are paid for their points of view and even they have developed a market for their perspectives, rather than having to toe the company line. They are independent contractors in that sense and don't have to pretend to hold certain beliefs to keep a job. This is why we went after the people we did.

Credibility is everything and no one in the media has any as far as I am concerned. We chose people who are still doing what they do, because they have thought it through and come up with their views from an intellectual point of view. That was why we could withhold the questions until they were asked on film, or memory card, to be more accurate. You can see them listening closely to the questions before answering, because they didn't know what was coming. Except for the couple that we had to redo for technical reasons, but nothing was staged or rehearsed.

And now, as I am finally able to lift my head out from the daily 12-14 hour days of editing and watching and sitting with our sound and music director, Rob Wallace, I can start to think of other things. We have a DVD that needs a little polishing, but we have it. I have watched it, but then I have seen the same footage so much, I can barely see it for what it is, which is why I will be looking forward to the screening on May 20th at 2 pm in Canon City and get some feel for what the public will think of it, what they will find wrong that I have been looking at for weeks and never saw. Filmmaking has always been a collaborative effort, it is the one thing I like about it. Writing novels is a solitary effort and there is never a moment when there is confirmation of a good chapter until the editor sees it with his eyes.

There are two websites you should all be aware of  http://12roundproductions.com and http://liesofomission.com as I spend more time promoting the film, I will be spending more time there to keep those interested up to date, but I really look forward to being able to give this site a little more attention in the weeks to come. I want to thank everyone who has helped with this effort, it has taken a load off my mind to think that we have gotten the financial support we needed to complete the film, without having to cash in everything I own.

Pikeville: A Greater Good

There have been a lot of different accounts of what happened on Saturday April 29th in the otherwise peaceful and picturesque Kentucky town of Pikeville. One account on the Drudge Report claimed that the Nazi fascists were booed out of town. That was not so, it was spin, it was our media being the Marxist puppets they have become since throwing all their credibility into the wastebasket as they shifted to propaganda. It was not the town that booed, but Antifa who booed as the Traditional Workers Party and the National Socialist Movement loaded up at the conclusion of the event. To portray it any other way is dishonest.

This is what did happen. 

Antifa had gathered at some other spot before making their appearance along the shaded sidewalks of Pikeville, walking in a long group, carrying banners. Young people hanging out with each other as much as anything else. They were ushered along and tended to by their handlers. There is no doubt that many of the Antifa were anti-racist and anti-fascist with the zeal of someone who does not fully comprehend the definition of either term. They hate something deep inside, their country, their heritage, perhaps themselves and they mean to take it out on someone.

They got to the city square about ten minutes before their seeming opposition and gathered in the street blocked off for the event. They began to chant as members of the League of the South arrived and took their position inside a sort of pen created out of fencing barriers. The League of the South were not the racists that Antifa sought. The League members talked to the media gathered with tripods and a preconceived agenda. They spoke of the First Amendment and tried to make it clear to the reporters that while they might not agree with either the Nationalist Socialist Movement (NSW) or the Traditional Workers Party (TWP) who had organized the event, they were there to support the individual right to free speech and assembly. But, the media didn't want to hear any of that, they wanted to lump the League of the South in with the NSW and the TWP, it's what they do.

The media lumps all conservative groups together but carefully makes the distinction between disparate liberal groups. The media does not recognize Antifa as violent or even radical, though they have demonstrated that they are both. The media does not demand that every liberal group denounce the violent and intolerant actions of Antifa, but they demand the denouncement of Neo Nazis from all conservatives. This is the clever way they give distance from Antifa to liberal groups, but associate all conservative groups with Neo Nazis like the NSW. It is deceptive and intentionally so.

Initially, the numbers looked perverse, with a much larger group on the Antifa side than the 15 or so on the League's side, but many were just college kids and onlookers.

As the temperature began to rise to ninety degrees and the humidity began to take its toll, Antifa became more aggressive, angry and punitive to this small group. They began to chant "Whose streets?" and responded "Our streets." They tried to drown out the League as they tried to make their case to reporters.

Antifa, which stands for Antifascist, though as a member of the League told me could as well stand for Anti First Amendment, because they have already been seen across the country trying to determine who is allowed to speak in any public forum and who is not.

The Pikeville Police, the Sheriff's Office and the State Police took up their positions between the groups and did an excellent job, making anything that has gone on in California look like a bunch of drunken sheepherders in comparison to the professional policing done by the departments in Pikeville.

In the crowd, one was able to discern the "feel" of the moment. Antifa is not one thing, it is a core of activists who rely heavily upon college youth for their numbers. This is why most of their actions center around a college town, such as Pikeville. Interspersed into the crowd of young faces are a few dedicated agitators giving instructions and holding the others accountable. Openly displayed was the Marxist means of agitation where the Marxism wafted thick behind the scenes, while the innocent, righteous and sympathetic faces show to the press and therefore the nation, giving the sense of merely concerned, over-sensitive young minds, but they are classic, living examples of Lenin's "useful idiots." The scene coaxes a sort of parental forgiveness from the front, but the dirty work is being done in the back, out of frame and ignored by the sympathetic media.

On the other side of the barricade, in the "pen" came the arrival of the true racists, the Traditional Workers Party (TWP) and the National Socialist Movement (NSM), with stylized flags flying that combined the U.S. flag with the Confederate battle flag and a black ribbon. These were not the otherwise tame ideological opponents of Antifa that the crowd had been used to, these were militant racists looking for a brawl and a discernable gasp was heard, but the Antifa leaders behind the scene rallied the troops and the chants resumed in earnest.

As the scene pivoted from 150-200 bullies berating a relatively small group of Constitutionalists, who spent their time denying racism and making technical political points, to one where there was a more equal distribution of antagonism. The momentum shifted from the bullies to the TWP and the NSM, who challenged Antifa to break the barriers. The atmosphere was suddenly charged with a sense of impending violence and clearly defined hatred. The difference between the groups were simply that the TWP and NSM were there on their own behalf, with their opinions and lives dedicated to their cause, no matter how distasteful and irrational it might be to the casual observer. Antifa, on the other hand, relied on these young, idealistic college students for their muscle and it didn't even look like a fair fight, despite the fact that Antifa held the numerical advantage.

As the epithets and gestures were exchanged over the heads of the police standing between the groups grew more and more vile and vehement, it happened.  The truth of these two groups became visible to the onlooker...they were identical. These were two sides of the same coin willing to deny humanity to someone else simply because they disagree, or have a different worldview. Antifa played Marx to the Traditional Workers Party's portrayal of Engels. Even a citizen looked up and remarked: "I don't see a lick of difference, do you?" "No."

This is why only a small contingent of Constitutionalists stood with principle to deny Antifa a clear field. A true Constitutionalist finds no sympathetic side with whom to ally. They are both despicable and in possession of the same tactics and methods: to shut the other side down. No one was there to hear an explanation of the First Amendment, or to debate the issues of the day. They were two rabid dogs lunging at one another without thought, without comprehension, blinded by the evil of their own actions, justifying it all for some greater good.

The leaders of both Nazi groups issued the challenge to Antifa, "Come on then, shut us up!"  "We're right here!" Those on the Antifa side tensed and looked through that thin blue line they would have to negotiate before reaching the TWP and NSM. Both sides rattled the barricades as tension mounted and the snipers up high in the bank building across the street adjusted their positions, the rifle barrels hidden by narrow windows opened to allow a shot. Small drones buzzed above the crowd and occasionally the riot squad secreted inside the City Hall could be seen through long panes of glass in the door.

There it was, the bluffing challenge and the muted response. It was a moment when it all could have gone bad for everyone, including the many, many citizens who were just there to watch, with no dog in the fight at all. Then it passed. While the rhetoric continued for another half hour, before the whole thing began to wind down, that was the moment of action and Antifa stood down.
