The Ugly Face Of Gender
...and the even greater ugliness of its promoters and
LAST WEEK AMERICA WAS TREATED to a
disturbing display of disturbed Americans occupying
the Oklahoma state Capitol. These folks, all
afflicted with Gender Confusion Disorder (GCD),
seized the building in an effort to intimidate the
Oklahoma legislature and governor Kevin Stitt into
backing down on the criminalization of "medical"
exploitation of the syndrome, which involves the
lucrative but appalling practice of chemical and
surgical mutilation of the deluded victims, in
futile and counter-productive efforts to convert
males into females (or provide the appearance
thereof), and vice-versa.
Among the long-term effects of these
horrendous abuses is the sterilization of the
victims-- who are often young children induced into
the disorder and led to believe that its remedy is
"affirmation" of the confusion, rather than its
correction, by pushers with a financial or
psychological self-interest in swelling the numbers
of these poor sufferers. Even when falling short of
that level of irreversible tragedy, the mere
encouragement-- active or passive-- of GCD sets its
victims up for long-term psychological harm as
critical adolescent growth of comfort and confidence
in a young person's true identity-- sexual and
otherwise-- is lost in the fog of the illness.
I'LL FOREGO THE OPPORTUNITY to compare
the governmental and media reaction to
this GCD "insurrection" and the reaction to the
much more peaceful and respectful behavior in
the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 of folks there to
see evidence of now well-established
election-rigging given a fair hearing in front of
the whole of Congress before the certification of
disputed election results (see
here). My focus here is on the
so-called "trans" community and its agenda
and its recent adoption of a militant demeanor.
I had no personal experience with
militancy among the GCD-afflicted during the first
few years of its eruption. Indeed, my only direct
experience with such folks at all was by encounter
now and then with a man pathetically and futilely
pretending he is a woman, or a woman pretending to
be a man at some business. Off-putting and creepy,
Lately, however, the GCD "community"--
fortified by a now familiar, seemingly coordinated,
campaign of ubiquitous exposure and celebration in
the mainstream media-- has taken a page from the
"loud and proud" gay playbook, escalating rapidly
into in-your-face confrontations like the one seen
in Oklahoma. And lately, I have had some personal
experience of that.
BACK IN OCTOBER, my daughter and I
participated in a rally at the Nashville War
Memorial in support of legislation in Tennessee to
ban the mutilation and other "affirmational" abuses
of children under 18 in the name of gender
confusion. I've attached a video, below, consisting
of several segments I recorded with my phone during
the affair, stitched together into about ten minutes
of total footage.
My recordings weren't taken with an eye
toward exposing or illustrating GCD militants.
Rather, I meant simply to memorialize the impressive
size of the turnout by supporters of the
legislation-- about 10,000, it is estimated-- who
gathered with little prior notice. This is
important, in my view, as activism and visible
support for a virtuous position encourages more of
the same, and the position being supported here is
That virtue is found in that
"affirmation", rather than correction of GCD is
pernicious, and a great evil to those individuals
upon whom it is practiced-- especially the children
among them. It is also found in that allowing the
persistence, and worse, the growth, of delusional
notions like the existence within a female body of
what really is a male person-- and all the assaults
on language and logic and the rational foundation of
civilized society that necessarily proceed from the
toleration and embrace of such delusional notions--
are a grave danger to all the principles and
practices that have elevated Western Civilization to
the inestimably-valuable engine of liberty and
prosperity that it had been prior to the onslaught
of progressivist assaults over the course of the
last 85 years or so, of which the "affirmational"
ambitions of the GCD-afflicted and their exploiters
are but the latest wave. Those of us who love
liberty and the American experiment on its behalf
must draw a line, and this is now the place to do
Again, I did not focus on the GCD
militants who crashed the Nashville rally-- indeed,
to have done so would have been near intolerable, as
they made a point of being as noisy and obnoxious as
possible, in the hope of drowning out or distracting
attention from those on hand to address the gathered
crowd in support of the legislation at issue. It was
not possible to get too close to that unpleasantness
and cacophony, and I had my quite pregnant daughter
to keep safe from both hooliganism and excessive
But something like 50 to 75 disrupters
were in attendance, armed with bullhorns and
boom-boxes and practiced chants. These annoyances,
amongst whom were a contingent wearing some form of
body armor and masks and who strove to
appear menacing, did everything they could to hinder
the organizers of the rally, despite a considerable
police presence who were rigidly oblivious to the
fact that the rally organizers had a permit and the
disrupters did not.
I actually made this point about
permits to a couple of the statue-like cops, and was
told that they were simply doing as instructed in
doing nothing. It appeared that they were on hand to
ensure that the protestors didn't get driven off by
the vastly-larger crowd of rally attendees...
YOU WILL HAVE HEARD some of the
disruptions during my little film segments, and
references to them by the speakers they were meant
to hamper. As I said, I did not attempt to capture
footage of these creatures specifically, but I did
pull a snapshot from one of my segments which I
think nicely illustrates this contingent of
The people involved can't be readily
distinguished here, I know. But take note, please,
of the sign in the middle left. "Nazi lives don't
matter", with a graphic image of an execution about
to take place. The opposite side of that sign read,
"F*ck around and find out" (without the muting
asterisk). This sign, depicting the attitude of
these nutcases toward the rest of us, is
representative of many on hand.
It is also representative of the
political position solidifying around us, in which
any application of judgment, or standards of
comportment or rationality are condemned and
denounced, and Americans find themselves
increasingly resident on the island in Golding's 'Lord
of the Flies'. It's not a healthy place to be.
Across the country in pockets, so far,
but growing pockets, grown-ups are rising to do
something about this madness, as are the legislators
in Tennessee on whose behalf the rally in October
was held, and those in Oklahoma where the mob
descended last week. Utah, Arkansas and other oases
are also emerging.
I hope that every good American rises
to support to these efforts and helps roll back the
onslaught of this corrosive "trans" madness.
For too long the good among us have let
our natural courtesy and generosity of spirit
dictate our behavior in this regard, and that
restraint has been exploited to our
ever-more-serious and enduring, deeply-rooted harm.
It's time to remember that while the chivalric code
calls for soft words, it also calls for hard knocks,

WE HEARD A LOT ABOUT "TOXIC
MASCULINITY" a few years ago. I think now it is
clear that what was really meant by that, even if
not fully realized by the purveyors of the trope, is
that masculinity is toxic to "wokeness" and
squishiness and most of the other progessivist
pathologies with which our culture is lately
infested. This means that rather than being a toxin,
masculinity is actually medicine, and America
plainly needs a lot more of it.

that if you have a $billion to invest toward making
more than a $billion by hook or by crook,
you are equipped to deliver fully a thousand million
dollar bribes to key folks who occupy public and
private positions which can be useful in committing
or covering up the scheme? Or ten thousand bribes of
$100,000 each, for that matter-- still likely more
than enough to get what you want from a whole lot of
folks, especially those who recognize the ability of
a motivated billionaire to successfully take control
of the narrative and pull off a cover-up?

WITH THE RECENT RELEASE OF ITS FILM
VERSION of the "1619" project, it is time for
everyone with any self-respect and respect for
academic accuracy, and who recognizes the importance
of protecting America's children from rank
propaganda and false history, to cancel their Hulu
subscriptions. The risible fictions of the "1619
Project" are so egregiously wrong, and
denounced by actual historians from all ideological
perspectives, that Hulu's production and airing of
this nonsense can only be deliberate malfeasance,
and a conscious assault on American political and
social stability and domestic tranquility.
Such actions may or may not rise to the
level of treason (surely giving aid and comfort to
America's enemies, if not an explicitly-declared
enemy), but they are so heinous, and so
seemingly-calculated to exacerbate an already
volatile and sporadically-violent disharmony present
in this country based on
assertions of institutionalized white racism
that condemnation in the strongest possible form is
called for. Do you agree?

THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN WITH ME for
at least the last few years are aware that
the obnoxious and harmful notion of "social
distancing" by which we were all afflicted
during the most destructive years of the C19
hobgoblin was originally conceived as a
middle-schooler's science fair project (as
discussed and documented in
this detailed presentation on the "pandemic").
Now we have another enthusiasm of the same
juvenile character but with much more
dangerous potential taking root: "Chatbots"
(and other AI "content creators").
The problem is that these
programs will be deployed to produce content
on all manner of subjects, much of which
will be relied upon by
citizens/consumers/moral actors, etc. (often--
or even mostly-- without knowing it is the
mere and unadulterated output of software).
Much of that content will be wrong,
misleading or outright disinformational.
For instance, Rod Schmidt
tested the thing recently, with this
"What is IRS form 4852?"
The answer produced was
"Form 4852 is a tax form used
by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the
United States. It is used as a substitute
for a lost or missing W-2 form, which is a
statement provided by an employer to an
employee that shows the employee's total
taxable earnings for the year.
Form 4852 is used when an
employee does not receive their W-2 form in
time to file their tax return. The form
requires the employee to estimate their
total taxable income and tax withholding for
the year based on information from their pay
stubs or other records. The employee then
submits the completed form to the IRS along
with their tax return.
Form 4852 is not a permanent
replacement for a W-2 form, and the employee
should still request a copy of their W-2
from their employer if it has not been
Plainly an incomplete
explanation, and as
such, completely misleading.
Rod tried again-- this time couching the matter as
only someone who already knew the answer
"What IRS form is used as a
substitute for an incorrect W-2 form?"
question got a better answer:
"The Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) form used as a substitute for an
incorrect W-2 form is Form 4852. This form
is used when an employee receives a W-2 form
that contains incorrect information and
needs to file their tax return before
receiving a corrected W-2 form from their
Form 4852 requires the employee
to estimate their total taxable income and
tax withholding for the year based on
information from their pay stubs or other
records, and submit it to the IRS along with
their tax return. Once the corrected W-2
form is received, the employee should
compare the information on the corrected
form with the information they provided on
Form 4852 and make any necessary adjustments
to their tax return."
A better answer, yes, but still
not optimal, as any CtC-educated person can
see. The problem (or a problem, at
least) inherent in "chatbots" and other AI
products is a lack of actual understanding
of what is being asked about-- not
understanding of an IRS form, but
understanding of the the whole point of any
Always absent from the overall assembly
of information/assertions that will be had from such
software is context-- the context of the
inquiry. Robots don't pay taxes, for instance, or
receive W-2s, correct or incorrect. They can have no
clue as to what might truly be relevant-- or
necessary to be completely relevant-- for an answer
concerning that subject.
In the same vein, also lacking will be
any underlying research informing the
answer given. Lacking the context of an inquiry, for
which an artificial answerer can have no
perspective-- no skin in the game, as it were-- that
answerer cannot recognize what might need to be
researched in order to provide a complete answer.
The bottom line is that in every case
except the most rudimentary, "chatbots" will provide
incomplete answers (hence, misleading answers), and
to where tasked with producing "journalism", as is
now going on in some quarters, they will be little
or nothing more than stenographers for "official"
(hence, assumedly "authoritative") assertions and
perspectives. That this will be little different
from what we usually get from the MSM in the way of
alleged "journalism" already is no comfort, since in
addition to being routinely misleading, "chatbots"
will be entirely unaccountable, and hence there will
be not the slightest motivation at any level to
strive for accuracy or honesty.
"I didn't write that, the

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...
...an important action item opportunity.
FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to
which most of the country has been subjected under
the fraudulent mantle of
COVID-19 mitigation should not be
allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing.
The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.
And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if
they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and
Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you
can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):
[Name], since March of 2020 you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from
learning the truth about the "income tax")
FOR ALL THE YEARS SINCE 2003 when
CtC was first published, the government has engaged in a
concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This
effort involves official government websites and press releases
touting an occasional court ruling that appears to be at odds
CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the
real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that
everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to
believe about something as entrenched and significant as the
income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help
cut through the resistance:
Ask your listener how he or she would react if
you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the
earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the
time because people don't understand how it works? Or how
about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying
Now you just have to explain that
you're going to show exactly those things-- but because
the state really doesn't want people to know this, these
things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would
all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these
admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press
release. But it'll be worth the effort...

On January 30, several Florida legislators
introduced HB 543, “Concealed Carry of Weapons and
Firearms Without a License.” If passed, it would
“allow” anyone — Floridian or not — who “meets
specified requirements” to carry concealed firearms
in the state.
Many gun rights supporters
laud HB 543 as not just a good step, but something
called “constitutional carry,” even though among
other defects, it doesn’t seem to legalize “open”
(that is, unconcealed) carry. Let’s review what
restrictions the US Constitution empowers government
at any level to impose on the possession or carry of
THIS SPACE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK
It’s difficult to get more clear or prescriptive
than “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,
shall not be infringed.” See that period at the end
The Florida bill ever so slightly lightens one
specific unconstitutional burden on one specific
right, while imposing at least one patently
unconstitutional burden on those exercising that
right: They “[m]ust carry valid identification at
all times when he or she is in actual possession of
a concealed weapon or concealed firearm and must
display such identification upon demand by a law
Suppose that one does not meet the law’s
unconstitutional “specified requirements” — for
example, having never been convicted of offenses
related to “controlled substances” — but decides to
carry concealed (as is his or her right) anyway.
Requiring that person to provide “valid
identification” (“valid” seems to be undefined in
the bill) is a requirement that the person
incriminate himself or herself, a requirement
forbidden by the Fifth Amendment.
Unless a police officer has probable cause to
believe that you’re committing or have committed a
crime, who you are is none of that police officer’s
business. And if he or she DOES have such probable
cause, it’s his or her job to identify you, not your
duty to identify yourself.
HB 543 isn’t “constitutional carry.” It’s a partial
relaxation of unconstitutional restrictions,
combined with new unconstitutional restrictions.
Real “constitutional carry” would look something
KNAPP'S CONTENTIONS SEEM PRETTY STARK and simple and
lacking in nuance, don't they? To which I say, "How refreshing!"... and
how absolutely virtuous and correct.
Let me fortify the substance of Knapp's
position-- which essentially is that per the terms
of the Second Amendment governments have no
authority to determine or impose limits--
"reasonable" or otherwise-- on the ownership,
possession or carrying of weapons-- with a deep dive
into the history of the amendment, the express views
of those who promulgated and adopted the amendment,
and the specific meaning of the words of the
which will be found here.
Upon studying those facts, it will
become clear to anyone and everyone that under no
circumstances can any imposition be Constitutionally
made by any government upon anyone's exercise of
this right. To tolerate such an imposition, no
matter how enthusiastically or forcefully advocated,
is to fatally undermine the whole point of the
America is just waking up (I hope) from
a long period since the time of FDR in which idiotic
and indefensible state-serving declarations have
been common to the effect of, "All rights have
limitations..."-- meaning, the state has the
authority to determine (or set limits upon) what
"rights" people have.
Actually, no. The whole idea of a
"right" is that insofar as it extends, it is proof
against any tempering or limitation. Its exercise is
solely and 100% at the discretion of the individual
in whom it inheres.
Misunderstanding on this point arises
because the extent of a right is-- in some
cases-- limited, a point summed up nicely in the
observation that, "your right to swing your fist
ends where my nose begins." Such limits are not due
to some overriding authority of a state to impose
such limits, though, but because everyone has and
must have equal rights with everyone else.
Courts are tasked in this country with
determining when such "fist" and "nose" conflicts
arise and how they must be resolved. But where a
right is spelled out in explicit terms, as in those
of the Second Amendment, and its exercise as spelled
out cannot conflict with the rights of anyone else
(there being no such thing as a right to an
environment or circumstance outside one's own home
in which others cannot have or carry guns, for
instance, or any like that) no limits exist to be
Our culture today has been trained to
think otherwise about rights, by a state which
hungers to exercise authority over everything. But
this ambition of the state is not only ungrounded in
any actual authority, it is at war with the
principles and purposes of American states as
conceived and as constituted.
Beyond the matter of refreshing our own
understanding of our rights and the limitations of
state authority, it is important to dampen the
state's illegitimate ambitions by restricting the
resources with which it pursues them.
In that regard, let's remember (or come
to understand, in some cases) that individual Americans
CAN stand up and pull the plug on an overly
ambitious state. Individual Americans CAN defund the state
that has become more a danger to our rights
than their champion.
EVEN AS ARDENT A STATIST as Abraham
Lincoln, in announcing his willingness to burn the Southern states to the ground in order to

service to the Founders design of leaving control over the fuel
available to feed the fires Washington wants to light in the hands
