Thus, it begins.

First you’re born.
Then you have choices.

First you’re born. Then you have choices.

— Daniel Bobinski

It’s said that many good fiction stories start with, “Once up a time.” Those are words to start a fiction story. Sorry, I’m not really into fiction. My wife and daughter LOVE fiction, but my view is this:

Life already has enough real twists, turns, and troubles, why should I spend my time reading about fake ones?

Okay, actually, I do read fiction from time to time, and I also enjoy a good movie. But mostly I read (and write) about real-life issues. And that’s what this blog is about. Real. Life. Issues. And real life issues almost always involve choices.

This blog is about choices I’ve made. It will offer my perspective in nine different facets of life, and I think the way I structure these facets may be of help to you. No, I’m not suggesting you adopt all the same choices I’ve made, but many of my clients love the way I created nine different facets for how to view and organize one’s life. I’ll identify those nine facets in a moment.

A grass farmer?

You may have noticed the subtitle for this blog is, “Perspectives of a libertarian grass farmer.” I’m sure some see that phrase and think, “Wow, a libertarian grass farmer – he must grow marijuana.” Sorry, I don’t farm that kind of grass. I’m one of those guys who has chosen to live in a subdivision, and where I live the grass is green nine or ten months out of the year. Often it’s green all year round. In fact, the above photo was taken a few years ago during the first week of December.

Why do I call myself a grass farmer? Well, living where I’ve chosen to live (in a subdivision), I’m somewhat obligated to keep a green, lush lawn. Of course, that involves fertilizing, watering, weeding, and yes, mowing. Like a good farmer, once a week each spring, summer, and fall I harvest the grass — but only to dump it into a compost bin.

Seems kind of silly, doesn’t it? In many ways, maintaining my lawn seems kind of pointless. There’s no monetary reward for this effort, and I’m not able to use any of my crop to feed my family. It mostly just looks good. But since before the days of George Washington, society has placed a certain status on having a manicured lawn. Back in those days, lawns were for the wealthy. Nowadays, in most every city in America, lawns are pretty much expected.

And this is an analogy for my blog. So often we make choices in life based on what we think we want, but with those choices come certain expectations. Sometimes we know what those expectations will be, sometimes we don’t. Still, if we make certain choices, we are usually obligated to do ancillary things that aren’t always fun and entertaining. This is part of life. Thus, I am a grass farmer.

A libertarian?

I’m also more than a grass farmer. Everyone knows about Republicans and Democrats. Of course, the Legacy media tends to put everything on a Right v. Left perspective, and we’ll talk more about the two ends of that spectrum in future posts. But I’ll tip my hand now to say that our two-party system is rather one-dimensional. If we look at a bigger picture, we can move beyond Right / Left thinking and see a few more dimensions. Libertarians fall into one of those dimensions.

As a cursory overview, the founders of the United States were, by and large, libertarians. To quote from the American Heritage dictionary, a libertarian is:

  • One who advocates maximizing individual rights and minimizing the role of the state.
  • One who believes in free will.

At one time in my life I chose to be on the Left of the given spectrum, and later I chose to be on the Right. But there came a time when I realized we were not created to be serfs for anyone. I went looking for something different, and realized that in my heart, I was a libertarian.

Before I proceed, I feel I must qualify the libertarian paradigm. First, being libertarian doesn’t mean you’re a moderate. It’s more about having freedom. Second, you can have “progressive” libertarians and “conservative” libertarians. Because I’ve chosen to be a Christian, I also choose — nay, I am compelled — to be more on the conservative side of the libertarian realm. However, you will find I hold some views that many Christians might take issue with.

As I explain those views in future posts, I will also explain why I think they align with Scripture.

The nine facets of life

To manage my life in balance way, I have identified nine different facets, or categories, for life. Does everything fit inside these categories? No. Sometimes I have to squeeze stuff in sideways. But for the most part, these nine categories make my life much easier to manage. They’re even easy to memorize because they’re in alphabetical order. The nine categories are:

  • Faith – The spiritual side of us
  • Family and Friends – Self explanatory
  • Finances – How we manage money, how we invest money, and how we spend money, etc.
  • Fitness – Our mental, physical, and emotional health (including our diet)
  • Formations – How and what we learn and our efforts to improve our understanding of things. It can be formal learning such as school, or informal learning, such as gleaning information from YouTube.
  • Forte – Whatever we do most during the week. If you’re an employee or business owner, that’s your forte. If you’re a full-time student, that’s your forte. If you’re a stay-at-home mom, that’s your forte.
  • Fortress – Regardless of whether we rent a room from someone, live in an apartment, a condo, a mobile home or tiny home, a typical suburban home, or a sprawling mansion, your “fortress” is where you live.
  • Foundations – This facet has to do with our community, which includes home owner associations, service groups such as Kiwanis or Rotary, and also governments, both local and national.
  • Fun – As the saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. This facet includes vacations, sports, or anything else you do for entertainment.

My blog posts will bounce from facet to facet. There will be no rhyme or reason to their order. If I feel like writing on Forte one day and Fun the next, that’s what I will do.

In other words, whatever I choose to write about, I’ll write about — because life is a series of choices. First you’re born. Then you have choices.

Thanks for choosing to read this blog. Hopefully you’ll get useful insights for living your life. Just know that I will be forthright with you. It won’t be fiction; it will be true. And hopefully, it will be useful. That said, what you choose to do with it will be up to you.

Covid Vaccine Pushers Going to Door-to-Door – Here’s Their Script

Well, well, well. It’s not enough that taxpayer dollars were by the Trump Administration to vaccine manufacturer to rush Operation Warp Speed. Now we have “Community Health Ambassadors” walking America’s neighborhoods with the purpose of convincing you the “vaccine” is safe and you should take it. We now have a copy of one of their scripts.

You should know that these “community health ambassadors” are paid for with your tax dollars, that they’re pushing a vaccine that was developed (in part) with your tax dollars, and the “vaccines” are acquired by the federal government using your tax dollars, they are distributed to the states using your tax dollars, and injected into arms by “qualified personnel” who are paid to do so using your tax dollars.

Trump is a guy who likes to check the boxes and get things done, and sometimes the details be damned. It’s my firm belief that besides him rumored to being a germaphobe, Trump’s “Driver” behavioral style got in the way of him evaluating the pros and cons of this new type of injection. By the CDC’s own definition, “the jab” does not qualify as a “vaccine.”

As such, many doctors and medical professionals are cautioning against getting the “vaccine,” which is, by definition, EXPERIMENTAL. With more than 7,000 deaths reported as the ultimate side effect from these experimental jabs plus over 400,000 other Vaccine Adverse Effects reported to the CDC due to these jabs (and those are only those which are reported), many people are wisely taking a “wait and see” approach. After all, the Covid infection has a better than 99% cure rate. With safe, inexpensive treatments being given by doctors that greatly reduce the likelihood of Covid hospitalizations, many people are choosing to forego the experimental jab.

Still, the powers-that-be seem to think their profits from these jabs is not what it should be, so the greedy bastards created a whole new segment of the executive branch of our county governments — County Health Ambassadors. I’m sure these are friendly folks just trying to earn a paycheck, but ultimately they’re working for Big Pharma … but they’re getting paid with your tax dollars. As we see from the script below, they’ll be visiting your grandma and grandpa in their nursing homes, and thanks to the “mainstream” media’s fear-porn campaign for the past year, featuring their main fear-porn star Anthony Fauci, many people in these homes are afraid of dying from Covid, but also afraid of dying from the “vaccine.” The job of County Health Ambassadors will be to use the PROPAGANDA we see in their script to convince these folks that the EXPERIMENTAL jabs are perfectly safe.

Despite 400,000+ vaccine injuries and 7,000+ Covid vaccine deaths.

Not being a medical doctor, I can’t give medical advice. But I WILL say this: All the doctors I interview are telling me the same thing: “DO NOT TAKE THE VACCINE.”

Now, to keep me out of jail, I offer the following legal disclaimer: “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  These statements are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”

Right.

That said, think for yourself.

For your own records, here is the script for the Community Health Ambassadors to use when contacting retirement homes and talking with the residents.

Door Knocking Project to Increase COVID Vaccine Acceptance

Helpful Hints

If you’re nervous, that’s ok! We all still get nervous, even if we’ve done this before.

You don’t need to have all the answers. If you are unsure of an answer, be honest. Tell the person asking that you are a volunteer, and you will take down their question so that a health department staff person can get them the correct answer. Or, if they prefer to call themselves, they can always call 847-377-8130. We have special hours for seniors every week on Tuesdays and Fridays from 12-3pm and Thursdays from 6-8pm.

Inform, don’t convince. Your job is to equip the person at the door with the information/resources they need to make an informed decision about their health. You are not trying to convince anyone to do something they don’t want to do.

– Review the talking points for FAQs and feel free to bring it with you to help with answering questions. (English / Spanish / Korean)

– Print and share the COVID-19 Vaccine Information Flyer (English / Spanish)

Ignore no soliciting signs. You’re not soliciting! You’re offering critical information and resources. What you are doing is not illegal.

Knock and then back up. Follow COVID-19 distancing protocols and speak clearly. If someone is uncomfortable with you being there in person, offer to give them more distance or leave them a flyer.

Use your script. This will give you the basics. Once you get comfortable with it, feel free to make it sound more like you as long as all the key information is there. Make clear up front that the building has let you in and you’re from the health department.

Leave a flyer even if they’re already vaccinated. They may want to share it with a friend or neighbor. Do NOT leave anything in a mailbox, that is illegal if you’re not a mail carrier.

Attitude of a golden retriever, memory of a goldfish. If someone says is angry or rude, try to not take it personally. They may just be having a bad day. Brush it off and on to the next door!

Report on your work! Be sure to fill out the Doorknocking Spreadsheet with the counts of who still needs a vaccine, who is already vaccinated, who needs more info, etc. This is important information that the Health Department is relying on!

Have fun! This is an amazing thing you’re doing. Regardless of how people respond, have confidence that you are making a difference and helping to save lives.

BEFORE YOU GO: Site Captain coordinates with Property

A list will be provided to you that will include Property Managers/Community Association Managers contact information. Please reach out to them via phone or e-mail to find out about access to the Community.

Property Manager/CAM sample Q&A:

You: Hello, my name is ________________________________ and I am a Community Health Ambassador with the Lake County Health Department. How are you today?

PM/CAM: Good but busy. What can I do for you?

CHM: I would like to come by your property to see if your seniors need any information regarding the COVID vaccine. I would like to come by this (day) ____________ at (time) ___________________.

PM/CAM: We don’t allow solicitation on our property.

CHM: I understand but I am not selling anything, we want to provide accurate information to the seniors in your community. Our goal is to maximize the vaccination effort so that ALL of your seniors receive the COVID vaccine when the clinic comes on-site. All I want is to see your seniors protected against COVID.

PM/CAM: We’ve been hearing about a vaccine clinic forever, when is it going to happen?

CHM: Soon. That’s why we’d like access to your property to talk with your tenants and get them prepared for that day. The Pharmacy Providers chosen by the Illinois Department of Public Health are working to get you on the schedule at their earliest opportunity.

PM/CAM: My residents are very skeptical about strangers. They are concerned about getting scammed during this vulnerable time.

CHM: Again, we are not selling anything. We would just ask them if they are interested in getting the vaccine and if not, why not. Many do not have access to the reliable sources: Federal sites like CDC, State agency IDPH (IL Dept of Public Health) & your Local Health Dept – Lake County Health Dept. We just want to get as many Seniors vaccinated to keep them and your community safe.

So, what is the best process to follow in order to access the building on (day) _____________ ??

PM/CAM: What information will you need from the residents?

CHM: Absolutely nothing. I won’t be asking for any personal information, not even their name. I just want to see if they have any questions or concerns about getting the vaccine that I can answer. And to provide them with information if needed.

PM/CAM: When you get here, you can ring Mr. Smith in Apt 401. I’ll let him know you are coming and that he’s to let you in. If I’m here, I might come with you to a few.

CHM: That is perfect … thank you !!

Senior Housing Tenant Q&A

After you enter the building, orient yourself so you systematically proceed from floor-to-floor, covering each wing. Utilize the tally sheet to keep count of those interested in getting the vaccine, those who refuse and those with further questions.

Please be friendly and approachable in your approach to the tenants.

Remember to: Wear a mask, Watch your distance (> 6ft at all times) and Wash/Sanitize your hands frequently.

Possible scripts & frequent questions to anticipate:

CHA: Hello, my name is _____________________ and I am a Community Health Ambassador with the Lake County Health Department. The reason I am here today is to talk to you about the COVID vaccine. Have you received a COVID vaccine already?

(IF THEY HAVE RECEIVED VACCINE)

Senior: Yes.

CHA: Excellent !!! How was your experience? (listen & support their answer). You are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks AFTER your 2nd dose (or 2 weeks after single J&J dose). Are you considered fully vaccinated?

Senior: Yes.

CHA: Thank you for your time and thanks for being part of the solution in fighting COVID.

(IF THEY HAVE NOT RECEIVED VACCINE)

Alternative answer:

Senior: No (answer to getting the vaccine).

CHA: We are working to bring vaccinators on-site to provide vaccines to you and your neighbors. Are you interested in getting the vaccine here at your facility?

Senior: Yes.

CHA: Great !! I will mark you down as wanting to get the vaccine. Do you have any questions for me?

Senior: Yes, when will they be coming?

CHA: That I don’t have the answer for as yet, but your Property Manager will be posting the information as soon as it is scheduled. Anything else I can help you with?

Senior: Do you know what vaccine I will be getting?

CHA: That is to be determined but it will likely be J&J.

Senior: I would rather have Pfizer.

CHA: I understand that you might have a preference, but some vaccines require specific temperatures that make it hard to transport. J&J is easy to store and transport. And best of all, it requires one, single dose.

Senior: But isn’t J&J less effective?

CHA: The current vaccines are equally effective in preventing severe disease, hospitalization and death. J&J is a proven, clinically effective vaccine.

Senior: I hear nothing good about the J&J vaccine.

CHA: I understand there is a lot of information out there about the different types of vaccines, but J&J is a great option and very effective. The fact that you need only one dose is a real benefit. Two weeks after this vaccine, you are protected against COVID and you are also protecting others.

Senior: I read that the side effects are worse with J&J.

CHA: Side effects are different for each person with each vaccine, but it’s important to know that side effects are a sign that your body is working to build up a defense against the virus. And side effects are not nearly as bad as a bad case of COVID. There are only 3 sources I would trust for vaccine information: at the Federal level, that would be CMS (Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services), State Public Health/IDPH (Illinois Department of Public Health) and your local Health Department, Lake County Health Department.

Senior: If I get the vaccine, do I still have to wear a mask?

CHA: Yes, wearing a mask, watching your distance – staying 6 feet away from others, and washing your hands frequently will be part of our lives for a while. Only 15% of Lake County residents are vaccinated. So, we need to practice COVID precautions until we eliminate this terrible virus.

CHA: But the CDC does say that once 2 weeks after vaccination, you can get together with friends and family who are also vaccinated.

Senior: I’ve had allergic reactions to medications and foods years ago, is this vaccine safe for me?

CHA: The only true contraindication to this vaccine is a severe (anaphylactic) reaction to an injectable/vaccine in your past. Or an allergy to an ingredient in the vaccine, like polysorbate. After your vaccination, they will observe you for 15 minutes to be sure you’re doing well. With a history of other allergic reactions, they may want to watch you for a total of 30 minutes, instead of the standard 15 minutes, just to be sure you’re feeling ok. But if you have any question about your past allergies and vaccine compatibility, you should ask your doctor/healthcare provider.

Senior: I’d like to talk to someone about getting a Pfizer vaccine instead.

CHA: I can help connect you with someone who could answer that. What is the best way for them to contact you? By e-mail or phone?

CHA: I want to thank you for taking the time to talk with me. Getting the vaccine is the first step in getting our lives back. You can be part of the COVID solution.

Oh, to be in Marjorie Taylor Greene’s shoes

By now you’ve probably heard that the cancel culture is alive and well, even in the halls of Congress. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the 46-year-old representative of Georgia’s 14th district, was removed from both of her committee seats by a vote of 199 – 230. Eleven Republicans (in name only) were among those who voted for her removal.

Oh, how I envy Marjorie Taylor Greene. Now, instead of sitting around, watching Budget Committee Chairman John Jarmuth (D-KY) placate the treasonous Ilhan Omar, or watch Education & Labor Committee Chairman Bobby Scott (D-VA) do the same (Omar happens to be on both of the committees Greene was on), Representative Greene is now free to roam the halls of Congress and get the inside scoop of all the treasonous Deep State activities and cronyism occurring on Capitol Hill.

And if I were Rep. Greene, here is what I’d do.

Until I was restored to my committees, I would stand on the steps of the Capitol each evening and spill the beans on all cronyism and treasonous Deep State activity I heard about that day. Everything that violates our nation’s laws and the Supreme Law of the Land, the US Constitution, I would announce loud and clear to be reported by any outlet that wished to report it.

I’d talk about Nancy Pelosi’s family members making curious investments after Nancy learned of certain actions would be taken by the White House. It’s something her family has been doing for years, and she’s never been hauled before the ethics committee for it.

I’d talk about things like Adam Schiff’s curious connections to Ukrainian business people, and how Schiff’s “acquaintances” (aka donors) happen to land lucrative contracts with the federal government — and also lucrative contracts with countries that receive foreign aid money.

Anything and everything that even so much as hints of cronyism, corruption, and treason I’d be sniffing out and announcing every evening on the Capitol steps. Yes, the IRS might tear into every aspect of my finances for the past 30 years. Yes, I might get into an unforeseen nasty car wreck that kills me or maims me for life. And yes, I might even get shot twice in the back of the head during a “robbery” in which my wallet is not taken.

But none of it would happen in vain. My constituents would have voted for me to represent them in Congress, and if I couldn’t work for them while serving on a committee, I’d work for them by exposing the corruption that permeates Washington D.C.

The TRUTH needs to exposed. And Marjorie Taylor Greene now has a great opportunity to expose it.

The Capitol “Riots” – A False Flag?

It’s a shame independent journalists are handcuffed when reporting news. Despite a ton of evidence, I can’t declare something to be. Instead, I must ask questions, as then the Marxist censors who run social media platforms are less likely to shut off my pages.

That said, by asking the questions, perhaps it makes for a better story anyway.

I **STRONGLY** encourage people to read my column at UncoverDC on what we KNOW happened on January 6. And if you find it presents valuable evidence, please share it with people you know who believe the legacy media narrative that neither BLM nor Antifa were involved in the events at the Capitol on Jan 6.

Especially share it with your elected representatives.

Here’s the link to “Was the Capitol Riot a False Flag?

Oh, and you can also download the flyer for the 11am BLM-affiliated event two miles from the Capitol, which said attendees “Must have tactical gear / bullet proof vest, bring first aid kits and water.”

Now why would they need bullet proof vests?

Oops. There I go with another question.

Johns Hopkins Study Suggests Covid-19 Death Toll is Misleading

It was bound to come out sooner or later: Deaths from Covid-19 are not exactly as they seem. A study published November 22 by The Students of Johns Hopkins states, “[T]he COVID-19 death toll is misleading.”

Researchers studied number and causes of deaths from 2014 through 2020, and found no increase in the number of deaths in the United States. Was there an increase of deaths associated with Covid? No brainer. But the US experienced a decrease in deaths from other causes.

The researchers found, “there was a significant decrease in deaths due to heart disease. Even more surprising, as seen in the graph below, this sudden decline in deaths is observed for all other causes.

What’s more, Genevieve Briand, the chief researcher, found no increase in the rate of deaths for senior citizens, those most affected by the Sars-CoV-2 virus. The following chart shows percentage of total deaths per age grouping from February 1, 2020 (before Covid-19 started killing people off) and September 5 (well after the “first wave” came and went.)

Anyone with an ounce of intellectual honesty will want to read this report for him/herself. You can find it here.

PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE:
It is the opinion of this writer that the entire world has been bamboozled by the Global Medical Establishment / Medical Industrial Complex. For those who prefer a more formal phrasing, that means we’ve all been deceived by underhanded methods. AKA duped … or hoodwinked. DECEIVED.

I’ll give you three guesses as to why.
Guess 1: $
Guess 2: $$
Guess 3: $$$

The “Boise Manifesto” – Boise Mayor Seeks to Create Another Portland

Imagine the mayor of a state capitol who seeks “ongoing and robust efforts to interrupt white dominant/white supremacist culture.” You’ll find that on page 8 of the “Final Transition Team Report” for Mayor Lauren McLean, titled, “A More Equitable City for Everyone.”

Yes, Boise’s good mayor put together a task force to come up with a list of action items for her term as mayor, and on her “to-do” list we find what she and her team think of the people who elected her.

Apparently, the city is full of white supremacists. Who knew?

According to the 2010 census, here’s Boise’s racial makeup:

That’s actually 107.5%, but what do you expect from Wikipedia?

Anyway, if the number is true, yes, 89% white is a lot of white people (unless they’re lumping Hispanics / Latino’s in with the whites). But one must wonder, why are these White Supremacists voting for — and successfully electing — Democrats over the past 16 years? In fact, why did these White Supremacists elect a socialist/Marxist to be mayor in 2018? What does that tell us about these “White Supremacists?”

It would appear the White Supremacist Boise population elected said mayor out of their own subconscious need for a savior — for among the many recommendations made by her committee, we find we need:

Ongoing equity and inclusion efforts, including but not limited to racial equity, white fragility and implicit bias training or book readings, especially for city personnel who do not identify being from communities impacted by marginalization. Engage in an ongoing assessment of impact of these efforts, e.g. were personnel policies reviewed and updated, etc.

Thank God Boise’s Democrat White Supremacists voted for Mayor McLean, who will save Boiseans from sins we didn’t know we had.

Anyone who cares to read the entire pile of excrement document — here it is: Final Transition Team Report for Mayor Lauren McLean

Marxist Mayor of Boise’s “Snitch” Line Gets Calls From Patriots

Boise Mayor Lauren McLean’s “snitch” line is getting a good number of calls from patriots. The snitch line was created to report businesses or persons not following the Mayor’s mask edict; however, patriots view the snitch line as an opportunity to snitch about their rights being violated.

As you might imagine, some of these patriots are taking 10 and 15 minutes to explain their concerns. That’s understandable, as it takes time to outline specific Constitutional violations and transgressions of Idaho state code.

One patriot, who did not wish to be identified, said, “It’s a damn shame it takes so long to explain Constitutional law. I know it clogs up the snitch line, but Constitutional law is Constitutional law, and it can’t be glossed over.”

The Marxist mayor says she will strip business licenses if a business does not enforce her mandate.

McLean, a former city council member who slid into the mayor’s seat due a stealth campaign in which she claimed the position is “non-partisan” (and she therefore refused to discuss her political positions), seeks to pattern deep red Idaho’s state capital city into a carbon copy of Portland.

She even hired Portland’s assistant police chief to be Boise’s police chief. And she put together a team of “experts” that created a “Boise Manifesto.” As a taste of what kind of city McLean wants to create, her Manifesto includes the following goal:

Commit the City of Boise to an ongoing and robust efforts to interrupt white dominant/white supremacist culture.

Yes. The Mayor of Boise called her own citizens white supremacists.

And the mayor herself is white.

And she was elected by these “white supremacists.”

If you think you might have something to report to the Boise snitch line, the number is 208-608-7040. If you do decide to report an infraction regarding the mayor’s mask mandate, please be polite and state your concerns clearly. After all, patriots should be a respectful at all times.

ADDENDUM: The Boise mayor’s first mask mandate was conveniently instituted ON JULY 4th. Her most recent mask mandate has been instituted the week of Thanksgiving. The timing of her mandates are suspect, but we can only assume the Marxist mayor intended no disrespect to American culture.

The Marxist media is not trustworthy (no, really, they’re not)

I just wrote a piece for RedState on how KTVB in Boise refuses to take down a fake news story about Idaho Representative Tammy Nichols. Definitely a case of the public relations arm of the Marxists and the Medical Industrial Complex digging in their heels.

And yes, it’s about masks.

Go check it out.

The Dem’s manual for disrupting the election (leaked and now available)

Amazingly, the Democrats / Marxists / Antifa / BLM (all redundancies) aren’t even trying to hide their plans anymore. Someone leaked their “Disruption Guide for the 2020 Election.”

What can we expect?

First, expect the Left to believe Biden will win. Second, expect a lot of violence no matter who wins.

Let’s start with #1. In my opinion, one must be either brainwashed or blind to think Biden will win. Sadly, a percentage of our population are brainwashed and/or blind.

I think blindness is inexcusable:

(a) Joe Biden can’t fill a high school parking lot and (b) he spends half his time in his basement instead of campaigning. Do you think the millennial basement-dwellers rubbed off on him? You know, the same kids who were rubbing the hair on Joe’s legs in the pool when they were kids? Or is his campaign relying on the upcoming voter fraud to give them a fighting chance?

Conversely, Trump draws YUGE crowds everywhere he goes.

I recently posed two questions online:

1) Do you know anyone (including yourself) who voted for Trump in 2016 but will NOT be voting for him in 2020?

and

2) Do you know anyone (including yourself) who did NOT vote for Trump in 2016 but WILL be voting for him in 2020?

Invariably, the responses to question #1 were NO and a ton of YES answers to question #2. I’m personally aware of two people who voted Trump in 2016 but won’t be pulling he lever for him in 2020. But I know a LOT of people who didn’t vote Trump in 2016 but are definitely voting Trump in 2020.

Put another way, Trump hasn’t lost but a handful of voters, and he’s gained a whole bunch who passed him over last time.

So Trump is going to win. But the Dems/Marxists think the election will be close. If it’s anywhere near close it will be due to mail fraud, but however they get votes, they try to claim victory and see any effort by Trump to remain in office as a coup.

Hence their “Disruption Guide” for “Stopping the Coup,” and that brings us to expectation #2.

Expect anger. Expect large, unruly crowds. Expect Marxists to start fights with Patriots who show up to prevent the Marxists from starting riots. Expect them to blame Patriots for every ounce of trouble while THEY are the ones who will be instigating the trouble.

Here’s the key: NONE OF WHAT YOU SEE WILL BE ‘ORGANIC.” All of it will be organized and planned. VERY well planned. That’s what the DISRUPTION GUIDE is all about. If you doubt this, I’ve linked to the document below so just download it and read it for yourself. And feel free to print copies and give them to your patriot friends. Heck, you might even pass copies along to your local law enforcement.

And definitely – DEFINITELY – be prepared. Also be safe, and be blessed.

When readers are … well … illiterate. And lazy.

As a journalist / columnist / political pundit, I occasionally get ‘fan mail.’ Most of it’s good, but sometimes it’s … odd.

For example, back in July (2020) I wrote about Anthony Fauci lying and people dying because of his lies. (That #$&#* is on the Leadership Advisory Team for Bill Gates’ “Decade of Vaccines,” and because of that financial interest he’s been lying about valid, effective, low-cost treatments so he can rake in $$$$ on vaccines. But I digress.)

In that article about Fauci I referred to GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Eli Lilly, Merck, and Novartis, and said they were collectively known as “Big Pharma.”

“Big Pharma” is a common phrase, and I pretty much defined it in the column. Still, here’s a letter I received about that phrase:

I’m pretty much in agreement with what you are saying until you start using code words like Big pharma.  Why can’t you write the article in English?  I have no clue what you mean by your stupid code words.  I speak English and thought I was reading an article by you in English.  If you want to get people to understand what you are saying and why please make the entire article understandable in one language.

Not exactly the most polite letter I’ve ever received. If I was inclined to be an overt jerk, I could have fired back a short, pithy insult about his (or her) inability to:
(a) keep up on colloquial phrases regularly used in the news, and
(b) use a dictionary.

But I didn’t want to be a an overt jerk. Instead I was more subtle. You’ll see what I mean when you read my response:

Dear “________”

Thank you for reading my column and being “pretty much in agreement” with it.

On to your question.  You asked, “Why can’t I write the article in English?” You specifically had an issue with my use of the phrase “Big Pharma,” Allow me to refer you to an online dictionary, Merriam-Webster.com,” which, to the best of my knowledge, is a dictionary of the English language.

By entering the phase, “Define Big Pharma” in a search engine, I found this link: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Big%20Pharma

And upon clicking that link I found the following definition:

Big Pharma

 noun

variants: or less commonly big pharma

Definition of Big Pharma

: large pharmaceutical companies considered especially as a politically influential group
The Medicare prescription drug benefit enacted in 2003, and scheduled to go into effect in 2006, promises a windfall for big pharma since it forbids the government from negotiating prices.— Marcia Angell, New York Review of Books, 15 July 2004

It’s no secret that Big Pharma spends megabucks marketing to physicians.— Anne Underwood, Newsweek, 29 Oct. 2007

I personally find search engines to be quite helpful for getting definitions of English words with which I am unfamiliar. The process even works with foreign words.  I simply type “define ____” and no matter what language the word is, the search engine will give me the English word for it.  It even translates Russian into English!   In fact, I did this very thing just today. I entered “define неграмотный” and it gave me the English translation. It’s that easy.

Hopefully this tip helps for future phrases you’re having trouble with.

Thanks again –

Daniel

This person wrote back again, and I was expecting an earful for insulting him (or her), but there was no such outrage. Instead, s/he continued to find fault with other words I used in my column. There was no response at all to the Russian word I used.

If the person had bothered to look up, “неграмотный,” s/he would have seen that it means “illiterate.”

Like I said- some folks are неграмотный – and lazy, too.

A Rape Victim’s Trauma When Wearing a Mask

The following letter was sent to Chad Christensen, an Idaho state representative, and shared with permission.

Statement from Rep. Christensen:

This was sent to me from a rape victim regarding her trauma with masks. It was very humbling to receive this and I could not help but feel tremendous concern and empathy for her. She wanted me to share it, so I am. God bless her and may He be with her always. May He bless and be with all women who suffer from a similar affliction.

I will not tolerate disrespectful responses. Those making them will be banned and the comment(s) deleted.

“Chad, I want to personally thank you for taking a stance on our freedoms being violated. Your post today about being a voice for those who don’t have one really hit home. When I was 16, I was raped. I left my house late one night to meet a guy I met online. We had met one other time, so I didn’t think I wouldn’t be safe. That night he put his hand over my mouth the whole time. My muffled sound of my voice haunts me. I was so scared to tell my parents, so I kept it to myself. I went into a serious depression and tried to take my life many times. Finally, I told my parents and got the help I needed. I have struggled with what happened for many years.

“The first time I wore a mask, I felt if I took deep breaths I would make it through my grocery shopping trip. Just having something over my mouth is hard. I was rushing through Walmart trying to get done as fast as I could. A lady asked me a question and I quickly replied. My voice was the same as that night. All the sudden I couldn’t breathe and I was paralyzed with fear. The lady kept asking me if I was okay, but I couldn’t speak. With tears streaming down my face, I finally got the energy to get out of there.

“Every time I put on a mask it takes me back to that horrible traumatic night every. I have had more panic attacks as I am trying to live a normal life. Most days I cannot leave my house. If I don’t have one on I get dirty looks. If I try to put one on my fear becomes impossible. My depression is almost at its all time high again. My doctors have had to increase my medication. I am reliving my personal hell every day. Please share this because I too am grateful you are the voice for those who don’t have one. Know for me, you are the voice and hero for the ones who had their voice taken away. Thank you.”

Comment from Daniel Bobinski:

It is impossible for me fathom the anguish and mental trauma some people are enduring with our unconstitutional and unscientific mask mandates. Not only rape victims, but anyone dealing with post-traumatic stress or robbery or you name it.

When a senior medical doctor with St. Alphonsus Health Care System in Idaho advocated for mask wearing to the board members of Idaho’s Central District Health, he had the audacity to say that there’s no reason for anyone to not wear a mask. I DARE that ignorant and arrogant punk — no matter how many letters he has after his name — to sit across from the woman who shared this story and tell her there’s no reason why she shouldn’t wear a mask.

To every “Karen” or “Maskhole” who has looked down on or gone so far as to publicly shame someone for not wearing a mask, your insensitive selfishness is not welcome in any form of civil society. From my perspective, no words exist to describe how pathetic you are.

Do you want to wear a mask? Do so. But do NOT force your choices on other people. You have absolutely ZERO understanding of why someone might not be wearing a mask, and any assumption you might make is based in self-righteous arrogance. Besides, you should know that the CDC recently released a study in which they found 70% of people who caught Covid-19 “always” wore a mask, and 3.9% of the people who caught Covid-19 “never” wore a mask.

Tell me again how masks help?
