I’m taking off the gloves

This podcast is very different. Those of you who haven’t subscribed, throw in a few bucks and listen.

Ever since I ran for a seat in the US Congress in 1994, I’ve been making notes on the portrait of a REAL President of the United States. A man who would actually go to the wall for values and freedoms expressed in the Founding documents of this country.

And when I say “go to the wall,” I mean something far more than ANYTHING we’ve ever seen from a modern President.

For example, he would have to dismantle and crush whole sectors of the bloated federal apparatus that has been erected over the past 200-plus years. So he would have to be a very different KIND of man.

Perhaps a Teddy Roosevelt or an Andrew Jackson, minus a few of their insane character flaws.

This is my intent: paint a picture in words of a real President and describe exactly what he would do. In detail. BLOW FRESH CLEAN AIR INTO A LUNATIC CULTURE.

Why? Because we need, more than ever now, a new standard.

We need a new VISION. Because too many people believe we can never put things right; that too much power and too much corruption has invaded every sphere of human life. We need to offload that conception and burn it to the ground.

We CAN’T just settle, in our minds and hearts, for baby steps along a road that might liberate us a little more or preserve a status quo that is moderately comfortable for some and say this is the best we can hope for.

Trust me, I fully understand what we’re up against. I also understand that most people believe a REAL leader would be blocked, trapped, cut off, hamstrung, and weighed down in diabolical legal clap-trap until he is effectively castrated.

But you see, and I really hope you get this because it’s crucial, “what most sensible people believe” is exactly what keeps us from forming a vision of what we actually WANT. AND THAT VISION IS AN ESSENTIAL BEGINNING, without which everyone flounders and finally surrenders.

FIRST comes the big vision. Then comes the plan for implementing it. If you try to put the plan and the system first, you fail every time.

There are endless reasons under the sun for believing all is lost. There are endless reasons for being cynical to the point of running out of energy.

So what I’m doing in this podcast is reclaiming lost territory and lost energy and lost pictures of what I believe we really want to see happening in this country, from top to bottom…embodied in the vision of a real leader.


Because SOMEBODY has to.

Somebody has to, without being circumspect, without thinking a real revolution is “scientific,” without sounding like a tech head from Microsoft giving a TED talk.

A REAL President would attack. He would attack the enormous landfills of bullshit that have surrounded us.

Well, what would that attack look like, from Day One of his Presidency?

What would he do, in full possession of his senses, with a burning clarity of mind, to turn upside-down things right-side up?

How would he act, and what would he say—avoiding all the tightly measured and sphincter-clenched drivel of politicians?

What would he say if he was actually committed to MAKE A REVOLUTION HAPPEN?

How would he embark to irritate every oyster shell in which every comfortable person lives—forcing that shell to produce a pearl?

Oh yes—some people will immediately say that such a man would turn into a military dictator. But I say no. I’m showing a man who would elevate freedom-with-responsibility to heights that would impact the lowest worm of a defeatist cynic to his core.

This is the picture of a man I’m painting. A picture whose existence has long been forgotten.


The one millions of people have unconsciously been waiting for.

Not “a chosen one.” Not some automatic one from nowhere presented to the people on a silver platter. But a man who has worked his way up to the place where seeing and taking action are One.

It’s time to look at this man.

In the podcast, I’ll do my damnedest to show him to you. In a way that stops you dead in your tracks if you just want to shrug and say, SO WHAT? I’ll try to show him to you in a way that involves you in his great enterprise and war, because it’s your war, too.

It’s yours, mine, and everybody else’s’; this goddamn war has been going on for 50,000 years.

But here’s the bottom line on the podcast. You can look at this vision of a real president from any distance. Up close, far away. You can walk around him, view him from the side in profile. You can engage at different levels. You can experience your own feelings and thoughts as you watch him make his revolution. You can find out more about what you REALLY feel. That’s my goal in this podcast.

    I wonder how many people actually realize that ‘our’ government that is incorporated in the District of Columbia is not legitimate whoever is in charge it doesn’t matter. When they became incorporated they were no longer answerable to us. Those in charge today know this and are taking every advantage of it. The nearest thing we have to a real government are the state governments some of which are too blue and quite flawed to be of any use. I do believe that western civilization is collapsing and the life, as James Howard Kunstler is fond of saying, is about to get a lot more local.

  2. Robert Heughan says:

    Jon, I agree with you. Don’t know if you are spiritual, but as well, a President with the backbone you outline, would stand up to everything, as he would be backed by God. And it would usher in true greatness once again for the country.

  3. Orpheus Owl says:

    There was one man who ran for president back in 2008 and 2012 who I genuinely believe wanted to dismantle the IRS, the Federal Reserve, forced vaccinations, all corrupt institutions, etc. He was known as “Dr. No” for voting on all the unConstitutional bills. The media mocked and marginalized and maligned him while lying about his numbers and popularity.

    2008 was the one and only time I’ve ever voted in my life, and I saw firsthand the rigged system. The voting machine kept flipping over from Ron Paul, who I’d chosen, to John McCain, a totally different column not even adjacent.

    The third time this happened, I told a poll worker. She said “Oh, that’s just a glitch. You have to reinsert your card.” She was so nonchalant I could tell it’d been happening all day.

    It was a glitch, all right. The machine was not supposed to “flip” the candidate selection right front of my face, but wait until I’d walked away.

    It’s a new generation now, and his son is deep into the enemy’s territory and theatrics, playing their game. I understand envisioning what you want to transpire in the world, but first you’d have to fix the 100% rigged voting system.

    Ever since JFK, they’ve made damned sure that only those puppets they’ve preselected and handpicked get within 1,000 miles of the White House. Assassinations are just too messy.

    The Chicken and the Egg.

    We need a ‘Real President’ to flatten and level the old corrupt System and help to bring about something much better.

    BUT… the problem is that the System would never allow such a thing.

    So, we can’t change the System if we don’t have someone with the capability to do that. And the System will not allow such a person to exist.

    So we have a traditional Mexican Standoff of deadlock and immobility.

    Just as the Dark Powers want it. And need it.

    Organizations of any size do not like change. They will resist change coming both from outside and from within.

    And when an organization detects change coming from the outside.. They will label this a ‘threat’ and add internal forces to resist this self-declared threat. So the cemented inside corruption and stagnation gets even stronger.

    What changes this dynamic? Two things.

    Something coming from the outside that is powerful enough or surprising enough to catch the Cemented Lifeless System by surprise and knock it off its perch.

    Or, the internal corruption and rot gets so intense the Cemented Lifeless System implodes and withers all on its own.

    People today are seeing all kinds of Systems for what they are. Lifeless… corrupt… withering. Systems people used to have faith in and rely on. And now that faith and trust is being withdrawn.

    This is creating a void. An old mental construction of faith and consent is disappearing and something will begin to fill that void.

    People will find something new to believe in. It might be better. It might be worse. But nature hates a vacuum, and we humans cannot operate without an Operating System of some kind of Faith and Trust.

    Will it be a new Strong Man leader? Will it be self-empowerment? Will it be a new sense of Community? Will it be a further destruction of the whole dynamic of Community and cooperation?

    We’ll have to tune in for the next episode of… ‘As The Human Drama Turns…’

    Query: Opinion on today’s Jan.6th hearing. Something(s) that DOJ can/will act on? Or just more lip service?

    Absolutely fantastic podcast. Very powerful.

    I agree about meritocracy!!!

    I don’t think the playing field should be artificially leveled.

    But what is happening in towns all over America, is the Middle Classis being squeezed and destroyed. Of course by the Giant that is Blackrock, and other greedy MFs!

    People need to have a roof over their head in order to concentrate on meritocracy.

    Major housing crisis coming, homelessness is exploding.


    The link is by truthstream media. They are couple Aaron and Melissa who traveled all over the US to towns and cities and they lay down the evidence that EVERWHERE rents have increased by 20-40%. New woman got a “pandemic deal” on her apartment for 1900. She was notified they are raising her to 2700.

    It is a very thoughtful and worrisome presentation.

  7. TruthSoulJah says:

    I’m not sure there is a man who’s up for the job of serving as a “Real President.” If the country is going to unite behind a populist revolutionary leader I suggest it’s time for a “strong woman” not a “strong man” in that role. A military officer like Tulsi Gabbard would be a good candidate if she could channel Smedley Butler, resign her active duty military commission and renounce her previous connections to globalist cabals such as the WEF & CFR. Such a leader would also have to be independent of the two hopelessly corrupt political parties.

  8. darrell says:

    “…a man who has worked his way up to the place where seeing and taking action are One.”

    The problem with working one’s way up the political ladder into a position of power and influence means either doing the bidding of the predatory NWO Globalist elite or else having the ladder kicked out from under oneself.

    There can be no truly humane and benevolent social, economic, and political order outside the plan designed by God Himself, on which Fr Denis Fahey eruditely wrote in the mid-1900s before the great revolution in both the Church and the culture at large:

  9. Thomas Palm says:

    Virtue is a difficult thing to practice and those blessed with the strength to carry it off will need the backing of many like minded comrades. It will take military powers to set the stage. That may be happening now, and revealed history that knocks our socks off may be just around the corner, that will make such a revolution possible. Here’s hoping.

  10. Chris A says:

    Only sheep need a leader.
