Kushners in the White House

Ivanka and Jared Kushner (Daughter and Son-in-law respectively of the President) are apparently powerful policy forces inside the White House. I don’t like this and frankly I think it is absolutely outrageous. Ivanka holds the role of Assistant to the President and Jared holds the role of Senior Advisor to the President, Director of the Office of American Innovation, and apparently unofficial Chief Middle East Diplomat. This kind of nepotism is not to be tolerated and Trump’s base should call on him to fire his family members effective immediately. It is well known that Ivanka and Jared are liberal New York Democrats and their views don’t really coincide with those of Trump, his base, or the GOP.

Trump is an odd duck in that he has has populated his White House with Democrats and “moderate Republicans” instead of the type of people who voted for him and brought him into office. Where the hell are the strong conservatives and pro-capitalist forces within the White House? While I strongly commend his picks for Defense Secretary (Ret. Marine General James Mattis), Secretary of State (Former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson), Commerce Secretary (Billionaire Investor Wilbur Ross), Treasury Secretary (Multi-Millionaire Investor and Bank Executive Steven Mnuchin), National Security Advisor (Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster), Interior Secretary (Former GOP Rep and Navy SEAL Commander Ryan Zinke), Health and Human Services Secretary (Former GOP Rep Dr. Tom Price), Energy Secretary (Former TX Governor Rick Perry), VA Secretary (Dr. David Shulkin),  OMB Director (Former GOP Rep Mick Mulvaney), CIA Director (Former GOP Rep Mike Pompeo), Ambassador to the U.N. (Former SC Governor Nikki Haley), Trade Representative (Former Deputy Trade Representative Robert Lightizer), and White House Chief of Staff (Ret. Marine General John Kelly) I have to say he has got an odd assortment of people within his White House. His closest advisors are Ivanka, Jared, Gary Cohn (Former Goldman Sachs President/COO, Democrat, Chairman of National Economic Council), Dina Powell (Former Bush Admin Personnel, Moderate GOP), etc. These people have opposing views on important issues such as government involvement in the economy, climate change, trade, military policy, etc. Ivanka and Jared Kushner cannot be controlling National policy simply because they are related to the President. I despised it when Hillary Clinton did it during her husbands administration and I thought JFK naming his brother Attorney General was a disgrace too. Ivanka and Jared are neither very successful independent entrepreneurs, academics, policy analysts, military personnel, political strategists, or government officials. They aren’t qualified for the power they are being given. Why the hell is Jared Kushner going to the Middle east to attempt an Israel-Palestine solution when President Trump has got a very able Secretary of State and Deputy Secretary of State plus Ambassadors and policy staff? Jared Kushner is not an expert on any of those areas, he isn’t qualified to be speaking on America’s behalf. Rex Tillerson should threaten to resign if President Trump doesn’t fire him immediately. Undercutting the Secretary of State’s authority on countless occasions has caused Mr. Tillerson a lot of difficulty but he should draw the line and threaten to quit if Kushner isn’t fired.

The Ignorance Problem

It is my belief that America has a profound ignorance problem. Too many of America’s citizens: men, women, and children face a lack of basic knowledge. Our public school and university system has failed our people. Most young people in our country do not even possess a rudimentary knowledge of our country’s history, philosophy, or culture. They seek to destroy and eliminate all painful periods of American history which they don’t politically agree with. They seek to paint America as a perpetually immoral nation that doesn’t even deserve to exist.  They don’t understand basic economics or even human nature. They seek to live in an idealistic utopian society in which reality is not a factor. This kind of thinking amongst the masses will lead to the downfall of the nation.

 

This phenomenon is demonstrated by the various occurrences happening in our nation as of late. Many “protesters” in the form of organizations like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and others are coming together to get rid of confederate monuments and other pieces of our nations history. History was sometimes cruel, deal with it. You cannot erase unpleasant history. I am worried that there will once be a day when I cannot show my children the monuments of the past and explain to them what the civil war was, what slavery was, why it existed, why it is immoral, etc. Will these nut jobs get rid of our great Founding Fathers because some of them owned slaves? Will I be able to show my children a monument of George Washington or is that politically incorrect? What they did was wrong but they were a product of their time, it isn’t an excuse for that part of their behavior but it is reality. We cannot block out things and get rid of the past because we don’t like it. We have to deeply understand our history, learn from the mistakes of the past and move on. Historical revisionism sets a very dangerous precedent, every time loud voices in society dislike something from the past, they will simply erase it. We will lose the opportunity to learn from the past and personal accountability for actions will disappear.

 

In our education system, media, and popular culture young people are being taught that America is an evil, morally bankrupt, and illegitimate idea and country. This is not true. America is the greatest country in the world, it is the richest, it is the most powerful, it has the most personal freedom and liberty, and it is the land of opportunity. There are very few if any “institutional barriers” to success in this nation. It is not India or China where you have to peddle your influence to get a local police job. It isn’t South Africa, where you have to pay a large bribe to get a job at a bank. In this mighty Republic, merit and hard work will take you beyond what anyone thought was possible. This country achieved so much in so little time because this country’s philosophy was based on maximum individual freedom, economic freedom, very limited government, and a strong national defense. This country is the most moral in the world, we have shed our blood and spent our treasure for people around the world on countless occasions. We have fought for global peace, security, human rights, and maximum freedom. We have made some mistakes along the way, but this world is much better off because on July 4th, 1776 the United States of America was born. This is not what we are taught in our schools, now is it? We are taught that America is fundamentally wrong, socialism is the right way to go, and minorities are being held down by “society” or “institutions”. This is bullshit, the culturally marxist education system seeks to destroy this country from within, they are teaching children to be weak and entitled from birth and to suck on the teat of almighty and all powerful government in order to survive. They preach hate and ignorance and accuse all their opponents of those traits. They seek to do this because they don’t believe in a strong America, they do not want people to be independent and free. They seek to control the masses and consolidate power in their hands, they don’t want standout individuals to become successful and rich. They want everyone to stay the same so that they can rationalize their own mediocrity. That is the philosophy of a communist or socialist, be jealous of the man who earns and produces more than you.

Why do people even protest the President?

  • Because he wants to cut taxes for everyone?
  • Because he wants to eliminate a wealth redistribution and socialized medicine scheme known as Obamacare, which has failed miserably?
  • Because he wants to develop a strong and secure border?
  • Because he wants to remove people who are ILLEGALLY here in this country?
  • Because he wants strengthen our national defense to protect our sovereignty and our allies?

 

Those all sound fine to me, but to a raging leftist college student it is terrible.

This is what the left is teaching.

  • He wants to cut taxes for “the evil rich and corporations.”
  • He wants to kill people, as if people weren’t doing just fine without Obamacare or any other failing government program.
  • He wants to implement racist policies to get rid of hispanic and muslims.
  • He wants to separate families and cruelly ruin peoples lives.
  • He’s giving money to the military industrial complex when he should be spending money on social programs. Apparently we already spend way too much on defense, nuclear weapons should be eliminated. Why can’t we all just get along? Lets hug ISIS, Iran, and Russia. That’ll definitely work to foster global peace and security.

 

Kids need to read and they don’t anymore, they just passively absorb the media, teachers, and social media posts. Read books about our nations history and read about politics and economics. Understand truths and realities rather than absorbing political rhetoric. Become critical thinkers and have your own opinions. This ignorance will bring the downfall of the nation if it is not remedied. I worry about America’s future, we are a country filled with some gems and far too many fools. The balance needs to change if this country is to survive, thrive, and prosper.

Steve Bannon is out of The White House

It looks like Steve Bannon either resigned or was fired from his position as White House Chief Strategist and Counselor. Steve Bannon is a former Naval Officer, Banker, Filmmaker, Political Strategist, Executive Chairman at Breitbart News, and now former White House Official. Many on the left and even some on the right have painted him as a racist and a very hateful person. I don’t agree with this characterization. I agree with some of his views and I disagree with most but I think it was imperative for him to be removed from office for a couple of reasons. First lets have a little discussion about him and the people who align with his views.

He does not identify with actual conservatism, capitalism, or republicanism. He is supposedly a voice for “the workers and the middle class”, those are terms created and perpetuated by the sub-human scum that was known as Karl Marx and later Vladimir Lenin. There is no “middle-class”, there are just individuals and families that wade through all different kinds of economic situations throughout their life. No need to label and collectivize them, that is unless you wish to control them. Middle-class and working class were just ways to organize people into a fit of rage against the “evil capitalists”, it was just a collectivist technique to con the masses into joining the movement.

I do not care what the “middle class” in America thinks about economic matters, most are willfully ignorant and will pledge themselves to political moralizing and emotion rather than facts and logic. People can be conned into believing that there are political solutions to economic issues. I’ll take my neighbors opinions on tax rates and international trade with a grain of salt. This neighbor probably got all his information from watching a couple hours of MSNBC or Fox News every weeknight. I do not care for his opinion because he is not educated on economics and believes that the media is going to report unbiased news to him and educate him on the issues. Bannon represented these kinds of people and unfortunately a lot of these types of people voted for both Barack Obama and Donald Trump. They vote for these jokers out of emotion and don’t realize that there are better candidates out there. I would have much preferred President Ted Cruz, President Rand/Ron Paul, President Greg Abbott, or even President Mark Meadows. Why? They are politicians just like everybody else but at least they are practical for the most part and realize that economic issues cannot be solved by political grandstanding and that most things cannot be solved, but rather that tradeoffs can be made. Of course, this is not what the voter wants to hear. Voters want “answers” because they are too lazy to fix their own life and look to politicians for the answers. Many Trump voters thought this guy was going to come in and fix America. A single incompetent President cannot fix years of laziness and entitlement in our population, the enabling of politicians to do what they wish, the emasculation of young men, and the lack of basic education and common sense in our population. It frustrates me that people in our country, the best in the world are so ignorant and stupid. But, I think Steve Bannon understood these points very well because he is such an adroit political strategist and used these things to his advantage to lead Candidate Trump to astounding political victory.

 

I think he is wrong for the White House for the following reasons:

  • He has right-wing socialist economic views.
    • He wants to raise taxes on the so called rich. How is that different from any other commie-democrat plan?
    • He doesn’t want to eliminate the disgusting entitlement programs of social security, medicare, and medicaid that are ruining America’s fiscal health.
    • He thinks that the “evil banks” caused the financial crisis and not the government.
  • In a supposedly off the record interview with some New York magazine, he disparaged the idea of any military solution on the Korean peninsula. He did not ask the permission of the President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, Deputy Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, National Security Adviser, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, or anyone else with Military authority. He just televised that we may not take action to the enemy and the world. What if North Korea took that as a sign of weakness and conducted an attack?
  • He was not helpful at all in getting any Trump legislation through Congress.
  • He was openly contradicting and smearing fellow White House employees and Corporate executives who were trying to work with the President to improve the nation.
  • He was utilizing Breitbart to tarnish the reputation of the National Security Adviser, U.S. Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster. Even if McMaster didn’t have pro-Israel views and was perhaps soft on radical Islamic terrorism, you cannot disparage such a patriot. General McMaster is a patriot and a brilliant tank commander, he laid down his life for the nation, no one has the right to accuse him of being almost treasonous. Breitbart claims to be so pro-military, but as soon as they found someone who had different views than them, they start a smear campaign. How is that any different from the left?

 

These are just some of my views and I think that we may now see some actual political progress in Washington, but as we know the President is his own worst enemy. As he likes to say, “we’ll see what happens.”

America is the “mightiest Republic upon which the sun has ever shone” (Quote by Theodore Roosevelt), it is our duty as citizens of this great Republic to save it.

More thoughts on the possible Korean War

With the media flailing around as usual, it would seem as if war with North Korea was imminent. President Trump and North Korean Communist Dictator Kim-Jong Un are trading barbs at each other. Secretary of Defense James Mattis warns Kim-Jong Un that his country will be destroyed if he attacks the United States or its allies. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson aims to get U.N. Sanctions enforced at the highest levels and calls for the world to isolate North Korea. It seems as if war may break out any minute. Lets break this down. While I believe risks are very high right now, I’ve got a contrarian view on things.

In my view, the Korean war was one of the most justified interventions we took part in and was worth it. Many members of the South Korean, U.S., Australian, and British Armed Forces lost their lives and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice a Democracy was saved, millions were saved from massacre, and a powerful nation emerged. South Korea is ahead of North Korea in almost every meaningful measure. They are a very wealthy nation, have a strong framework of laws and justice, have a very powerful and technologically sophisticated military, have a healthy and educated population, and are a major force for Asian and global economic growth. They are a strong trade and military ally of the United States and Japan. Our country really protected and nurtured something great. The South Korean people should be commended for how they rose out of the rubble of the Korean War to build an economic powerhouse that we now know as the Republic of Korea. After years of friction with the north since the armistice of 1953, war tensions are rising once again and it is possible that North Korea may attack U.S. territory such as Guam, its neighbor to the south, or Japan. Risks are particularly high because it is highly probable that the rogue regime to the North may have developed the technology to miniaturize nuclear material and develop their own arsenal of nuclear warheads. They have now directly threatened the U.S. territory of Guam which hosts a large U.S. Naval installation. They are rarely ever this specific and a North Korean military leader indicated that Kim-Jon Un has ordered a battle plan to strike Guam. President Trump, U.S. Defense Secretary General James Mattis, South Korean & Japanese Military Leaders, and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull have all warned the North Korean regime that it will be decimated if they attack the United States or its allies. There is no doubt in my mind that we can militarily defeat the North. South Korea has a formidable military capability and add Japan, Australia, and the United States which has the most powerful military on earth and beyond. We will burn their nation to the ground in war. Hell, China has said they will not help the North if they hit U.S. territory. Even if China were to intervene militarily, they would not be able to win and World War III would likely commence if the United States and China went into direct combat. China displayed strength during the last Korean War (1950-1953) but they would have been defeated and the whole Korean peninsula would have been taken by U.N. troops if not for President Harry Truman’s milquetoast behavior. He fired revered General Douglas MacArthur when he was planning to bomb the Chinese and North Korean troops and take all the land for a unified Korea. China will probably interfere indirectly like they did last time but may not escalate because it would hurt them economically and they will not be able to win. China has the largest standing military on earth at 2.5 million but they are still not as technologically advanced, battle ready, or experienced to win a direct war with the United States. The U.S. Navy’s force projection capability alone is what makes China not risk direct confrontation with the United States. They know that they can never win. No military in the world can defeat the United States in a conventional war such as World War II.

Now the U.S. is getting much smarter with guerrilla warfare and cyber warfare but the Washington elites have still not learnt from the foreign policy mistakes of the past. The wars in Vietnam and Iraq were full of short-term thinking and terrible strategic and tactical planning, we always demonstrate military superiority and then we get bogged down in the diplomacy and foreign relations part. If the U.S.’s only goal in Vietnam was conventional military victory and then leaving, we would’ve won based on the strategic planning. But by then there was too much political correctness, lack of public support for the war, inability to get the South Vietnamese organized, ready, and motivated to fight for their homeland, and a weak battle and diplomatic strategy. The United States should go to war only when it is absolutely unavoidable and when there is a very strong and credible diplomatic and political strategy after the military victory. We win wars all the time but our diplomatic and political strategy is weak. Look at the success of post-WWII Europe and South Korea, the reasons for that are those places where we won had a lot of strong human capital, our diplomatic and political strategy was well defined and executed to perfection. It took a while for South Korea to recover but now they have emerged as a powerhouse. Iraq and Afghanistan didn’t work out because of the lack of human capital, inability to admit truths after the military victory, and a misguided attempt to build these countries up like post-war Germany or Korea. Iraq and Afghanistan have very little valuable human capital and they are not equally developed as Germans or Koreans. They still live in a very tribal manner, hold unscientific prejudices and views which affects their economies, and believe in a generally extreme and backward way of life. Very few people are highly educated and productive so it is never going to be possible for them to make the countries successful and highly productive, the Bush Administration miscalculated here and it costed us a lot in blood and treasure. We should’ve just taken our military victories and left or we shouldn’t have invaded with a conventional force. North Korea poses a problem in multiple ways, we may not be able to strike them first due to the likelihood of a situation like Iraq emerging after the military victory. North Korea is filled brainwashed communist slaves who may not be able to reintegrate in a United Korea, China may try to stop a reunification effort, and many allied civilians and military personnel will die in the war. And the financial cost is frightening to imagine. Iraq and Afghanistan were relatively small wars compared to WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and even the Persian Gulf War. Just those wars are estimated to have costed anywhere from $3-6 Trillion. A war in Korea against a million plus North Korean soldiers plus possible Chinese interference and costs of rebuilding could cost all the allied parties involved trillions of dollars. The U.S. and Japan are heavily indebted nations and it will hit our nations particularly hard and you can count on liberal scum protesting on the streets all over the world against the war, even if Kim hits us first.

 

So what are we to do?

I’m not an academic or expert on foreign policy, international relations, or military strategy. I’m just a guy who reads a lot about these matters and have an opinion. My view is that Diplomacy first is important, we should continue the pressure campaign on China and other Asia-Pacific nations to isolate and starve Pyongyang and Comrade Kim. We should sanction all banks and businesses conducting commerce with the regime and we should covertly increase American military presence in the area. Adding more strike groups and 30-50,000 ground troops would be a good idea. Missile defense in the area should also be beefed up. The United States should keep the peace and be prepared for immediate military action. We shouldn’t strike unless Kim is preparing to or has launched another missile. For example if he tries to hit Guam, our military should shoot it out of the sky and start a bombing campaign to take out his heavy artillery pieces and nuclear sites and the allied force should invade the North. It would also be prudent to hack into and break down his technological infrastructure. The allied Naval force should hit his Navy and take out all his weapons. South Korea should lead the ground invasion and should take the fight to them with such overwhelming force as to completely shock them into weakness. Meanwhile, the State Department should warn Beijing and Moscow to back off and not intervene militarily other than to protect their own borders.

 

We should try our best to avoid military conflict but if the inevitable happens, we should expect nothing less than absolute and decisive victory. God bless the United States of America and her Armed Forces.

Thoughts on the American Immigration System

Immigration is apparently a very controversial conversation to have nowadays, I don’t understand why. Its not really a controversial, people can have different opinions on the topic and still discuss it with civility. Here is my view and it is based on a mixture of economic facts and studies coupled with my personal experience.

 

First of all, it is absolute economic fact that immigration is a net good for any economy. However, the type of immigration is very important to consider. America has a very high number of illegal immigrants, more than 11 million. Some of these people pay taxes, many of them work, some of them are on welfare, and many of them are working in very low skilled occupations. This is a problem because it is a gross disrespect of American laws and immigration processes. It may also be suppressing wages in low skilled jobs and pushing lower skilled Americans out of the workforce. The left wishes to provide most or all of these individuals with a path to citizenship even though they broke the law, disrespected the American immigration process, and are using our national resources without being entitled to it. I’m guessing they want to legalize these people’s immigration status because they will have created a massive new block of reliable Democratic voters.

 

Main issues I see:

  • High number of illegal immigrants
  • Confusing immigration process that has too many different types of visas and systems
  • No clear goal on what kind of people we want immigrating to our country

 

America is the richest country in the world, the most powerful military power in the world, and is the global leader in personal freedom and innovation. Nobody is entitled to come here, just because some poor guy from Guatemala got to the border because he was being persecuted back home doesn’t mean he is entitled to be here, he should be sent back and the Guatemalan Government should pay for his transportation costs. I come from a family of immigrants and my family did immigration the right way and the legal way. My parents and uncles and aunts were highly skilled Doctors, Software Engineers, Management Consultants, Accountants, and Entrepreneurs who had fluent English communication abilities and were able to support themselves without any government assistance. This is the type of immigrant we should want coming to America. A merit based system would be far better than what we currently have. We’ve got a myriad of ridiculous programs that utilize lotteries and other nonsense such as the H1B, EAD, OPT, F1, Green Card, Diversity Visa, B1, etc. and it should be simplified and implemented in a fashion that will ensure we get the best people here. We should at least temporarily end all asylum and refugee programs because having people from Somalia, Iraq, Iran, Bangladesh, or El Salvador with little to no human capital or financial capital is going to create a burden on our country rather than a strength. Many of these folks cannot speak English, depend on the welfare system, are dangerously orthodox in their religious or social views, and do not fit in with the American culture or lifestyle. I will never understand why America allows refugees from countries we are either at war with or hostile with such as Iran or Somalia, it makes absolutely no sense. But when was common sense virtue in Washington?

 

This is the kind of immigration system I think we should aim for:

  • A 500,000-1,500,000 highly skilled immigrants every year.
    • They should be proficient in English communication, they should be tested on this.
    • They should have highly advanced skills, degrees, certifications, or professional abilities. Doctors, Engineers, Scientists, Bankers, Executives, Athletes, Bankers, etc. would fit the bill.
    • They should take part in a cultural test or interview that would help to determine whether their beliefs are in line with American values. Of course they can be trained to lie on this but it wouldn’t be too difficult to spot a lie in a personal interview, especially if you are asking tough questions.
    • An in-depth security background check and multiple letters of recommendation from family members, friends, colleagues, teachers, and superiors.
    • A medical test to check for pretty much everything.
    • Proof of financial independence (i.e. they have enough money to initially support themselves once they get here and will not depend on welfare).
    • This work visa will allow them to bring their spouse and live here for 5 years, if their spouse is a skilled worker they will have to go through their own immigration process, if not they will not be allowed to work or study here but can live here. They can bring children under the age of 18 after a less intensive but tough background check.
    • During the 5 years: they pay their taxes every year, do not file for bankruptcy or default on their obligations, never fall into any legal trouble other than minor traffic related incidents, have no black-marks on their employment file, and go through another round of security and culture checks. Then they can get Permanent Residency which will allow them to live here for 10 years and not require a formal work sponsor, they can work where they choose, start a business, etc.
    • After another 5 years if they follow this process they may become eligible for U.S. Citizenship, fast tracked if they serve in the Military or Police Force.
    • Rules as a Permanent Resident: cannot sponsor siblings, parents, adult children, or extended family for work visas or permanent residency. Can bring up to 5 people on tourist visa for 6 months, no access to American social services.
    • Only allowed to sponsor a total of 5 people after gaining Citizenship, they must high-skilled workers or students, no free loaders.
  • Business Visas for immigrants who would like to come here and invest and/or start a business venture.
    • They will go through the same security check process and must prove they are going to start a credible business and are not a fly by the night operation.
  • Student Visas for immigrants who would like to come here and get an education.
    • Same security check process and will not get special treatment when applying for a work visa after they graduate here.
  • Temporary Guest Workers for low-skilled positions:
    • Same security check process and will be allowed to come in for 6 months to 1 year at a time to work on relatively low-skilled positions such as restaurants, construction, agriculture, auto repair, etc. This can be adjusted depending on economic need. No access to American social services.

 

Things to avoid:

  • There should be no diversity quota, we should aim for the strong type of immigrants listed above.
  • We should not allow people in from war torn or terror prone countries, it is a terrible idea that has not worked out in recent years.
  • No immigrant should have access to welfare, Medicaid, CHIP, etc.
  • Anyone considered a threat to the U.S. should be deported immediately.

 

I think ridding ourselves of illegal immigration should not be too difficult. If we build a large border wall and fix it up with advanced technology such as drones and sensors, we should be able to stem illegal immigration. It may also be prudent to have military snipers on guard tower portions of the wall at the high smuggling areas and threaten to shoot if the smugglers do not leave. We need to take border crossing very seriously, terrorists could start sneaking through the border and wreak havoc. We should make illegal immigration a criminal offense and allow shoot at sight on the border if human smugglers are not complying with demands to step away from the border. We must deport all current illegal immigrants both physically and with a new Federal ID system that assigns ID’s automatically to all U.S. Citizens and Legal aliens and is required in order to be hired for any job or the employer will be prosecuted. Most of the illegals will not be able to find work and will leave, we should allow them to slip across the border or get on planes to get the hell out. They should never be allowed to return due to their flagrant violation of our rules. Having a weak border will also exacerbate our problems if we are ever at war and someone tries to invade.

 

Our American immigration system is broken and maybe President Trump, Senator Tom Cotton (R, AR), and Senator David Perdue (R, GA) are onto something with their new RAISE Act, but unfortunately I doubt it will ever pass in the Senate which is filled with perpetual losers who are loyal to their lobbyists and campaign contributors, not to their country. The lazy citizens of America should probably take an interest and vote them out.

The Pussification of the American Man

I believe that many of you along with myself have noticed that a large part of the male American population has become, for lack of a better word pussies. Wusses, wimps, cowards, milquetoast, weakling, pansy, or whatever the hell you want to call it. Don’t get me wrong, America is still pretty tough as a nation, toughest in the world anyway. We’ve still got some gun toting, brawny, capitalist alpha males who get shit done. But our young men are at risk of not evolving into that kind of man. I worry deeply that this degeneration of young men will lead to the ruin of our country. Strong young men have lead every empire to greatness and their degeneration has lead to ruin which is what the leftists want. If there is World War, how many of our young men are ready to go to war and kill the enemy without mercy? Are they even physically fit? Can they handle a rifle? Can they scale a mountain with a 50 lb pack? Can they go hand to hand with the enemy and win? Can they protect their homeland? Can they even run a mile? I’m starting to have serious doubts about these questions. Young men aren’t healthy enough to go through rapid training and deploy to the front, not with a 75% overweight/obesity rate in America. You can bet your ass that Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea (in NK even 5 year olds are reservists) have fit young men ready to die for their countries. Our young men our being indoctrinated in an educational system that teaches being masculine and warrior-like is wrong, that our country is evil, that capitalism is wrong, and that all war is immoral. They are growing up with these ridiculous opinions and neglecting to prepare themselves for what life throws at them. Instead of learning useful skills, they protest for welfare and “social justice”. Do you see the negative pattern developing here? Instead of spending a 100 hours becoming proficient at Microsoft Excel for a job, these young “men” are protesting for a universal basic income. When did American boys become so weak as to expect money from the government for doing absolutely nothing? They eat pizza 5 days a week, play video games until 3 AM, barely get through their school or jobs, and don’t spend time improving themselves. They protest and whine because they aren’t ready for war. War doesn’t necessarily mean World War II or The American Revolution, I mean the war of life. Life is as tough as any actual war because a full life includes actual war, peace, death, pain, loss, financial difficulty, rejection, and all the hell anyone could ever imagine. If you are tough, disciplined, and continuously working on yourself you can mitigate this pain and rise to heights that no one including yourself could imagine.

Radical feminists and cultural marxists in our education system, media, and even irresponsible parents teach our boys from a young age that being a boy is wrong. What is a boy to do? I didn’t really experience this as a kid. I liked Batman, the color blue, and I thought being a billionaire crime fighter like Bruce Wayne with hot girlfriends was the coolest shit ever. That is what I aspired to be and still kind of do. Nowadays, boys are being taught that this is wrong and that they should play with barbies, not fight or curse, and be as feminine as possible. Femininity is good and masculinity is wrong. If I got into a heated argument with another kid as a 15 year old, I fought them and usually won. I didn’t use my words and “I messages” because teenage boys are supposed to fight and you know what? The kid and I were friends and hanging out about 15 minutes later. That’s how boys are. It is in our nature to be rough and tough. We rarely spend a lot of time talking about each other behind other peoples backs and we don’t take things too seriously. We aren’t hypersensitive and we’re not women. And trying to make men women is highly dangerous because once you neuter men, there is no one to protect the homestead and the country. Men need to have that killer instinct because it is what enables us to survive. These young boys don’t have that. They go through their easy lives and whine and complain about nonexistent problems. The warriors of World War II would be ashamed to see their progeny turn into this. Boys need strong male role models in their lives to ensure their success and growth into a strong man. This will mostly be a father and/or brother, uncle, grandfather, etc. A lot of these boys are punks because of terrible parenting and their fathers should be blamed. I recently saw a video of a “progressive father” teaching his 4 year old son that he can be a boy or a girl and the kid is apparently transgender now. What the hell is this? The kid isn’t old enough to choose his bedtime or breakfast but he chooses his orientation. I’m going to be blunt, his father is am imbecile. He is essentially pushing his son to be a girl and is intentionally emasculating him, he sure is politically correct but a poor excuse for a father. He is using his son as a political tool because it is now trendy to be non-gender or transgender or whatever the hell the cultural marxists come up with next.

Men need to do the following in order to be ready for the war that is life:

  • Be physically healthy and fit. Cardiovascular endurance, strength training, and martial arts are key.
  • Be able to defend yourself, your family, and your property. Learn to fight (I recommend boxing or Jiu-Jitsu) and learn how to use a firearm proficiently.
  • Become resilient. Nobody can put you down expect yourself, get up and get to work!
  • Continuously improve yourself. Identify skills and abilities you want to have and work towards them. Read books, watch videos, listen audio lectures/podcasts, take courses, get extra formal education/certifications, do whatever is necessary to get better at your chosen craft and achieve your goals.
  • Do not whine or complain about “societal or institutional oppression”, especially if you live in America. That is a bullshit excuse and you know it, anyone can achieve anything in this country. This country has produced so many millionaires and billionaires that you wouldn’t even believe it, shut the hell up and get to work.
  • Be ready for a fight at all times. Whether it is a fight against an attacker, a fight with yourself to get better, or a fight against the myriad of difficulties that life will throw your way on your way to success.

These are real men:

These are questionable:

 

Do not be questionable, be men! Young men of America, stop allowing yourself to become indoctrinated and embrace your true self. Grow a pair and be a man. To hell with radical feminism (women and men have equal legal rights!), the protests, and all the bullshit. Work on yourself and grow up.
