A Red Rose and a Hat!


A Red Rose and A Hat, Lots of Hats

By Jim “Gymbeaux’ Brown, December 30, 2022

Today is December 30, 2022 and I received an email from Vickie Carlton, a real estate agent who works in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area.  Why am I telling you this?  So glad you asked.

I met Vickie many years ago, too many that I want to admit to.  At the time Vickie and I worked for the same national franchise real estate company.  She began a promotional campaign that featured a single red rose on a black background.  Her business card was black with a single red rose and if my memory serves me, she had the words, “Simple Elegance” over the rose.  It had to be there, otherwise I would not have remembered it after these many years.  On the occasion of us both attending a training program, she gave me a tin of cookies and you may have guessed it, the tin’s lid was black with a single red rose on the lid.  To this day, whenever I see a red rose, I immediately think of Vickie Carlton from Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas.

Then there is
Sandra Nichols, “The Hat Lady” from Montgomery, Alabama.  Like Vickie, I met Sandra at a training event many years ago.  What made the meeting memorable as compared to other such encounters, was that Sandra was wearing a hat when most women at that time or since, have NOT worn hats; see the photo above.  In fact, every time I saw Sandra, she was wearing a different hat and that, aside from her wonderful service to her customers, became her trademark – women’s hats.  I once received a post card type Christmas card several years ago, I wish I had kept it.  It displayed a lone Christmas Tree in a field and the only ornaments were women’s hats.  I did not have to turn the card over to know who sent it to me – it was Sandra!

The point I want to convey is this.  If you are in sales, sales of any kind, the number one thing you must do is to first create relationships with people and you do that by meeting them and then developing the skill of asking questions and LISTENING to their answers.  The questions do not have to do with what you may or may not be selling, they should be questions about the “probable buyer”, the “probable buyer’s” likes, the “probable buyer’s” family, the “probable buyer’s” business, etc.  The more you can get the “probable buyer” to talk about such things, the better you will be able to build a relationship with this specific “probable buyer”; PROVIDED YOU ACTUALLY LISTEN TO THE ANSWERS!  I considered “listening” to be so important, I wrote and taught a course titled, Effective Listening; How to Become an Effective Listener, and taught it the agents in my office.

I put the phrase, “probable buyer” in quotations for two reasons.  The term came from one of the best sales trainers of all time, Jeffrey Gitomer.  He suggested that EVERYONE is a probable buyer, not a customer or a client or as real estate agents often say, “my people”, and you must learn to treat them as “probable buyers!”  If you learn this one fact, it is very possible if not probable that you will eventually increase YOUR income by treating everyone you meet as a “probable buyer.”  Therefore, a shoutout to Jeffrey Gitomer for this income producing training tip!

To put this into perspective, I spent over 33 years in the real estate sales business.  Most of my time was spent training real estate agents in sales techniques and standards of practice.  My emphasis was NOT on agents becoming selling machines but rather I hoped they would become experts on relationship building and that they would become the best listeners on the planet.  No one is ever selling anything if they are doing all of the talking.  You can only discover that you may or may not hold the keys to satisfy a “probable buyer’s” needs if you learn what the “probable buyer” actually wants and needs.  You do this through relationship building and being an effective listener and that may require actually taking notes about what you hear.

Vickie Carlson and Sandra Nichols may both hate my guts but that doesn’t matter when it comes to their bottom line.  Unless I do illegal things, they understand that my political beliefs, my personal likes and dislikes, my habits, my family, my job have very little to do with both of them building upon our relationships by ensuring that I know they exist, what they do and where they do it.  I may never buy real estate or know of anyone buying real estate in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas or Montgomery, Alabama areas but if I did, I know who I would be calling.  Therein is my point!  Both Vickie and Sandra have maintained either an active contact such as Vickie’s monthly real estate newsletter and her red rose, or, Sandra by engraining in my mental grey matter that every time I see a women’s hat, I think of her.  This is called marketing.

It is critical to understand the difference between marketing and advertising.  You market to people you know.  You advertise to people you don’t know (it may also touch the people you do know provided they see it.)  Advertising is often referred to as the shotgun approach.  You send out a lot of material in the hope that someone who needs your service or product, sees it at the very moment they realize they need the type of service or produce you provide, and then contacts you.  Vickie and Sandra, both know me.  They know what I have done in the past.  They know where I live.  They know how to reach me if they need to.  They also know that I know a lot of REALTORS® and as such, if they need a REALTOR®  in my area but did not know any, they may call me to find one.  That is simply good networking and it works. 

IMPORTANT POINT!  I retired from the real estate business after 33 years on December 31, 2012, over ten years ago.  That is a long time to remember people like Sandra and Vickie who I haven’t actually seen in over 30 years.  How many people who are NOT related to you and who you met over 30 years ago at a 2-hour training seminar can you remember?  How many plumbers can you name?  How many electricians can you name?  How many car salesmen can you name?

CRITICAL UNDERSTANDING!!!!  I have just said I retired after 33 years in the business.  Can you appreciate the number of REALTORS®  I have encountered in those 33 years considering that I attending as many Conferences and Training Classes that I could possibly attend all over the country?  The number of agents number in the hundreds if not thousands.  In my own hometown of Slidell, Louisiana, there are easily over 300 licensed real estate agents and prior to 2012, I either knew most of them or was at least aware of them.  Most were aware of me because I was the Broker for one of the companies in Slidell and agents typically know who the brokers are.  Nonetheless, I have met and have known (past tense) hundreds and hundreds of real estate agents.  Yet, twelve years after my retirement in 2012, only two agents routinely reached out to me to “market” themselves and their businesses.  What does that say about the hundreds upon hundreds of other agents who claim to be looking for referral business?  How many car salesmen do you think have reached out to me in my lifetime AFTER I have purchased a car from them?  ZERO!  How many plumbers maintain contact with me?  ZERO!  How many electricians?  ZERO!  How many roofers?  ZERO!  At one point I had 105 agents in my Slidell office and after 12 years of retirement, how many have maintained constant contact with me?  ZERO!  Maybe everyone does hate my guts and none want to ever do business with me ever again or accept any referrals that I may be able to send their way.  Maybe it IS me!  But I doubt it.  Sales people simply do not understand the difference between marketing (a hand written note card) and advertising (a billboard or newspaper ad) and therefore spend most of their budget on advertising to the masses in hopes of attracting a customer rather than asking people they already know if they know of anyone that could use their professional services or buy their product.  If there are 300 agents in Slidell, Louisiana and you are one of them, what are YOU doing to stand out from the crowd?  What are YOU doing to create a mental note for people to recall you even 30 years later?  If you can’t answer these questions, what exactly are you doing to grow your business and increase the profit number on your personal financial spreadsheet?  And by the way, I receive a text message on every holiday from a local handyman who has done work for me in my home. 

Suggestion:  You may want to consider purchasing a red rose or wearing unique hats.


What separates you from the crowd?

If you can’t answer that,

neither can your database of probable buyers. 

You do have a database, right?

Out of the Shadows

By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, December 18, 2022

 “I can’t compromise any more,

I want to send a good message to my kids. 

I want them to know, at the end of the day, their Dad

did what was right and fought for the good things in life.”

Brad Martin


“I feel exactly the same way in spite of what others may think of me or what I believe;

I desperately want to send a good message to my kids; I only hope they are listening!”


The above quote was extracted from a video documentary with the title, “Out of the Shadows.”  It occurs at the very end of this extraordinary video that I believe everyone in America if not on the planet should watch.  It IS exactly how I feel.  Taking a stand for what you believe is NOT always easy and you run the run of people thinking you are crazy or that you have fallen off the deep end but that is a price as a parent I am willing to pay and accept.  I have done my homework; homework that so few people are willing to do on their own.  As a nation, we have been brainwashed as described in Out of the Shadows but so few people realize what has been done to them.

I understand that most people, certainly not you, choose NOT to watch documentary videos, especially when it might challenge what they believe to be true.  No one ever wants to be proven to be wrong about anything.  They choose to believe what they believe and then also choose to ignore any contradicting evidence to the contrary.  That is what has led America to experience the HUGE political divide that now spreads like a cancer throughout our society.  Democrats believe what they believe.  Republicans believe what they believe.  But there is a third category of Americans that may in fact be the largest demographic of all – Americans that just don’t care and want to continue to live their lives as if nothing is happening.

Vladimir Lenin, yes, that Communist Leader Vladimir Lenin, describes “useful idiots” as:

In political jargon, a useful idiot is a term for a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause -- particularly a bad cause originating from a devious, ruthless source -- without fully comprehending the cause's goals, and who is cynically used by the cause's leaders.

I could easily make the case that there are “useful idiots” in both the Democrat and the Republican Parties as well as those people who consider themselves as Independents.  In either category, these are people who for the most part, are UNCONSCIOUSLY doing the dirty work of a “devious ruthless source” in order to achieve the “devious ruthless source’s” agenda which is usually not a good thing.

It is my opinion that out of all Americans, the Americans who choose to remain neutral, who feel as I have stated that “who just don’t care and want to continue to live their lives as if nothing is happening” are worse than “useful idiots.”  If there is something wrong in America and/or the World and they choose to ignore it, then not only will they pay the ultimate price, the entire world will pay the ultimate price for their desire to “not caring and a desire not go get involved.”

I beg of everyone, for just one hour and eighteen minutes, that they put aside their Democrat, their Republican, their Independent beliefs and especially their “I don’t care” attitudes and watch the documentary Out of the Shadows.  In all honesty, I had “some” idea of the material covered in the movie but I had no clue as to the depth of the material covered. 

Please, if you don’t watch it because you want to stay in your bubble of beliefs, watch it for the sake of the future of your kids and their kids and their kids.  The documentary discusses the treatment of children but it also discusses HOW we are all being brainwashed by none other than our Government and Hollywood and then demonstrates exactly HOW celebrities, news media and politicians become corrupted, a process you may or may not know or appreciate how deep it runs.

Just ONE HOUR and EIGHTEEN MINUTES, that is all I’m asking.  Is that too much to ask for?  I certainly hope not.

Biden Safe Driving Awards Program


Biden Safe Driving Awards Program

By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, December 11, 2022


I have it on very good double verified information plus one anonymous source, that President Biden is working on a Safe Driving Awards Program that will apply to everyone in America that has a valid driver’s license.

You have to understand how traceable modern-day cars have become.  In the government’s attempt to get consumers to switch to all electric vehicles, President Biden has decided that good drivers should be rewarded for being a good driver.  The government is able to tell when you change lanes without using your turn signals.  It can tell when you fail to come to a complete stop at a stop sign or traffic light.  It can even tell when you run a red light or cross during a yellow or caution light.  Plus, it can tell when you exceed the speed limit at any given time.  Computers are already in placed that can track every driver’s performance in the country unless of course you are driving an old car.  In that case, President Biden is preparing a reprieve of the old Cash for Clunkers program to incentivize drivers to purchase new electric vehicles.

What is needed for this program to work are incentives for drivers to do the right thing, all of the time, not just some of the time.  Therefore, it has been reported that the drivers exhibiting safe driving techniques will be eligible to receive cash payments for their safe driving.  The following is the proposed schedule, the amount to be awarded is still under review and budgetary approvals.

  1. 100% use of turn signals whenever turning a vehicle or changing lanes.
  2. 100% coming to a complete stop at all stop signs and traffic lights
  3. 100% never crossing an intersection when the light is yellow (caution)
  4. 100% failure to properly yield when merging into traffic on interstate highways
  5. 100% staying within the posted speed limits
  6. Guaranteed to have automobile insurance
  7. Must have a valid driver’s license, extra points if you annotate you are an organ donor

The government has realized that it is very difficult to meet the 100% goal but for those people who do meet it, they will be handsomely rewarded with financial payments once every quarter for as long as the program remains in effect.  For drivers who meet these objectives only 90% of the time, they too will be rewarded but at a significantly reduced amount.

People who fail to meet the above guidelines at a level of 80% or lower, will have their driver’s licenses suspended for 30 days.  Once reinstated, repeat offenders will have to reapply to have their licenses renewed.  This program has all been made possible because of advances in computer technology and their tracing abilities.

The Biden Administration feels that by rewarding safe drivers, people will want to become safe drivers and this will significantly reduce motor vehicle accidents and even deaths on our highways.  The Biden Administration, more so than most previous administrations, realize that money talks louder than any words or simple desires.  Money will make Americans WANT to obey the traffic laws of the country to avoid unnecessary penalties.

If you have read this far, one of three things will have happened.  First, you are excited because you are already a good driver and any extra income would be very much appreciated.  Second, you are suspicious that this is actually being considered by our Federal Government.  Third, you have no opinion, one way or another.

Of course, this is a joke but once I put it on paper, I could actually see someone within the Biden Administration actually making such a bid for this ill-conceived program.  But what is NOT a joke is that there already is a similar program within our HealthCare Industry; more specifically our hospitals.  You think I jest?  I do not!

There are very few independent doctors practicing medicine.  That means that they have all signed on with Hospital Systems.  When they do, they get directions provided to them from Hospital Administrators.  Keep in mind that one of the primary jobs of a Hospital Administrator is to make certain that hospital operate in the black, meaning it makes money.  Doctors took an oath to do no wrong when it came to medical practice and their patients.  Hospital Administrators took no such oath.  Their job is cut expenses and to make money for the Hospitals.

Enter the U. S. Federal Government and COVID.  I have already done my own research on this and know it to be true.  I can and will tell you in principle how it works but you owe it to yourself to verify what I am about to tell you in this Nugget.  Don’t take my word for it, research it yourself!

Our hospital systems receive bonus money from the Federal Government when:

  1. Someone is given a test for COVID
  2. Someone tests positive for COVID
  3. Someone is admitted to the hospital with COVID
  4. Someone is administered Remdesivir for COVID
  5. Someone is placed on a ventilator with COVID
  6. Someone dies and the cause of death is listed as COVID

I kid you not.  The hospitals stand to receive bonus payments from the Federal Government when one or more of these benchmarks are achieved.  I have seen various numbers but can assure you the numbers reach into the tens of thousands of dollars for EACH COVID patient.

The Federal Government has incentivized the Hospitals so that they receive a lot of cash for doing what the government wants them to do.  This is precisely why Hospitals and Doctors have all but outlawed alternative medicines that have been proven to work to fight against and even cure COVID but they refuse to prescribe them because they make no money off of such actions.  Two such medicines, Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin have been banned but are continued to be used throughout the rest of the world.  Hydroxychloroquine is an over-the-counter medication in most parts of the world.

Think about it.  If a patient is cured using a medicine that can be obtained over the counter in other parts of the world, the Hospital Systems would not receive the thousands upon thousands of dollars to follow the government prescribed protocol for treating COVID patients.  It apparently doesn’t matter that people have died using this protocol, in fact millions have died at the hands of hospital employees under the direction of the Hospital Administrators and our Federal Government.

If you are like me and I am so thankful that you are, you are asking yourself, why would someone intentionally do such a thing?  To answer this, you have to look at the United Nation’s programs Agenda 21 and Agenda 30 (Agenda 30 is nothing more but an update to Agenda 21 when they failed to meet their schedule for Agenda 21 to happen).  Add to the United Nations the World Economic Forum and even the Center for Disease Control and you will quickly see that one of the major objectives of these organizations is to reduce the world’s population from 8 BILLION to about 500 MILLION.  That represents a HUGE reduction/elimination of people.  It represents a reduction of 13 of every 14 people on the planet.  How do you achieve such a reduction?  Wars, pandemics, disease, murder, natural causes.  If you look at the guidelines provided by the government during the recent pandemic, who were the first groups targeted?  The elderly and those people with underlying medical conditions.  In other words, people who are already receiving an inordinate amount of medical care (expenses) and whose deaths would be “expected” during a pandemic.

So why are they pushing vaccines for children 6 months to 12 years old?  Do the research yourself and look up birth rates before and after the pandemic.  You will see that adults are having fewer babies and the ones they do have are more often than not, still births.  The results won’t be known for years to come but it is believed that the vaccines are causing the young to become infertile which then becomes yet another method of reducing the population.

Why am I telling everyone this information.  So glad you asked. 


It really does.  I no longer watch the main stream news media.  You get the exact same stories on every channel regardless of network.  That in of itself should be impossible but yet there they are, same stories, same words, same phrases all from different people on different networks.  There is only one explanation for that; the stories are coming from the exact same places/people.  The media has become the country’s NUMBER ONE ENEMY when it refuses to report the truth.  Therefore, concerning people, such as yourself, should turn to alternative news sources where you receive an entirely different story of world news.  When YOU become AWAKE, assuming that you haven’t become so already, you realize that you are in a minority and there are more people asleep than awake and that is why being awake sucks!  You are written off as a nut job, you are crazy, you are insane, you are a conspiracy theorist, or you drank the cool aid.

War is a Racket (Racketeering)



Book written by General Smedley Butler

Book Review By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, November 22 2022


DEFINITION:  RACKET.  The author used the word “racket” but actually refers to “racketeering.”  This is the definition of “racketeering” that fits perfectly to the author’s intent of his writing. 

Originally and often still specifically, racketeering may refer to an organized criminal act in which the perpetrators offer a service that will not be put into effect, offer a service to solve a nonexistent problem, or offer a service that solves a problem that would not exist without the racket. However, racketeers may offer an ostensibly effectual service to solve an existing problem. The traditional and historically most common example of such a racket is the "protection racket", in which racketeers offer to protect a business from robbery or vandalism; however, the racketeers will themselves coerce or threaten the business into accepting this service, often with the threat (implicit or otherwise) that failure to acquire the offered services will lead to the racketeers themselves contributing to the existing problem. In many cases, the potential problem may be caused by the same party that offers to solve it, but that fact may be concealed, with the intent to engender continual patronage. The protection racket is thus often a method of extortion, at least in practice.

WHY DID I READ THIS BOOK?  I was watching a documentary in which the narrator described a Marine Corps General named Smedley Butler who for whatever reason was selected by the elite bankers of the world to work with them.  He apparently realized what their end goal was, to create a one-world-government and destroy America as we know it.  According to the narrator, he went along with their scheme long enough to gather evidence and then reported to the President of the United States what their objectives were.  Butler may have singlehandedly preserved the America we all have enjoyed.

Fast forward to 2022 and I have to ask the question, isn’t that what we are seeing today?  People like Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates and George Soros are attempting to destroy the world’s economy as we have known it and replace it with a one-world-government run by elites who supposedly know best what is good for the rest of us who remain. 

The main goal of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and people like Schwab, Gates and Soros is to reduce the world’s population by 13 of every 14 people on the planet.  That means killing off millions upon millions of people so that those who remain can maintain a “sustainable environment.”  That has been the plan since the early 1900s.

General Butler in this book, which is very short and easy to read in about 30 minute or less, describes the process by which the elite bankers of the world were no different than the Mafia gangs of the 1920s and 30s through to today.  More importantly he talks about what the people who fight the planet’s wars experienced and how it adversely affected them for life as well as their families all while the world’s banking and corporate elites sit back and collect MASSIVE PROFITS from the Military Industrial War Machine that President Eisenhower warned us about.  Wars are fought to increase profits while at the same time reduce the world’s population.  When people like Butler point it out based upon their own experiences, it becomes quite obvious that this is and has been their plan for decades.  In this regard, please do your own research and look up Agenda 21 and Agenda 30, both written by none other than the United Nations.  It verifies exactly what General Butler has written about.

General Butler pulls no punches in this book; NONE!  He tells it exactly how is WAS in his day and continues today.  The picture he paints with words is not a pretty picture and certainly does not describe the red, what and blue America that we were led to believe existed.  On the contrary, he describes a brutal do whatever it takes to grab as much money and power as you can and leave no stone unturned in doing so by Mafia-like people sitting in the highest corporate and political positions.  People’s lives simply do not matter to such people in carrying out their diabolical schemes that they have created.

Who should read this book?  EVERYONE but be prepared to be shocked.

Would I read it again?  Actually, I think I would and sill.

Would I give it as a gift?  Absolutely!

Fairly Smooth Operator


Fairly Smooth Operator

Written by Caroline Walsh

A book review by Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, October 27, 2022

DISCLAIMER:  Like the author, I too enlisted in the U. S. Coast Guard as a Seaman Recruit (E-1), the lowest enlisted grade in the service.  Unlike the author, I progressed up the promotional ladder by “striking” for Yeoman in the field in lieu of being assigned to a Class A Service School.  Over time I was promoted to Chief Petty Officer, then to Chief Warrant Officer and then to a Lieutenant, a Limited Duty Officer (LDO).  I retired from the Coast Guard after twenty years as a Lieutenant on a permanent disability retirement.  More importantly, I entered the service in 1965 and retired in 1985. Why is this important?  Because there is a total disparity in my review given the differences in our ages and to some degree also in our educational background.  The author graduated from college; I attended only two years of college.  But the time frame is what’s so very important to understanding the following review.

I will not give the book a bad review because I actually enjoyed reading it.  I personally believe that there IS a difference between sexual abuse involving actual sexual advances and/or sexual relationships as compared to the the raw military humor based on the difference between the sexes.  The author seems to me to be writing more about the later as she describes her encounters during her time in the Coast Guard.  I do not doubt she experienced what she wrote about.  All I can say is that in my 20-year Coast Guard career, I did not see the type of treatment she received.  That may be the result of being a man as compared to being a woman.  Nor did I see or experience the type of failed leadership that she was exposed to.  I have no doubt about the leadership as she described it at Montauk Point Light Station but that is just one unit and represents only 25 of the over 35,000 Coast Guard men and women.  The book is well written and definitely holds your attention.  I would simply hate for any reader to assume that the entire Coast Guard was the picture image of how she described Montauk Point Light Station.

As for her time in the CIA, I found it fascinating that she encountered some of the same failed leadership traits in the CIA that she identified in the U. S. Coast Guard.  I fear that many readers who have little to no experience in military service or government service may draw conclusions about the two types of services as being typical of the entire U. S. Government.  In this regard, I do not concur in such a conclusion which is why I felt the need to qualify my comments by defining my service in the Coast Guard.

It may sound like I did not like the book which is not the case, I did enjoy reading it, otherwise I would not have taken the time to finished it.  There is a significant age difference between the author and me but more importantly, it was a total difference in the calendar years difference when we were both 20 something and joining the Coast Guard.  Different eras, different beliefs.  Acceptable behavior in the 1960s was not in the 2000s and visa versa.  It’s important for the reader of this review to understand this difference in ages and eras.

The author wrote about the single most valuable personal trait that anyone could possibly create for themselves.  Unfortunately, she did not put it into specific words such as:  Always do your best to make yourself indispensable regardless of the situations you may find yourself in.  That is exactly what she did without saying it.  She made the best of both good and bad situations throughout the book by becoming indispensable to the people she worked for, both good and bad.  With such an attitude, she will always land on her feet regardless of what may be happening.  That very lesson definitely makes the book worth reading.

Who should read the book?  I think anyone who reads it will benefit from the read. 

Would I read it again?  No, there would be no need.

Would I give it as a gift?  Possibly, but to people who I believe would enjoy such a topic.

The Moon Shadow Effect



Written by Robert deCasares

A book review by Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, October 16, 2022

This is the fifth book in succession that I have read where the author uses current and past events that actually have happened and combined them with a tale of fiction.  The result is that the lines between fact and fiction become very blurred to where the reader has a dilemma as to making the determination between the facts and the fiction.  This is a great book.  How great?  I read it in one sitting which I rarely ever do.  I enjoy the mix of fact and fiction because it is very easy to relate to.

The story line and character development are great.  As I read the book, I could actually envision some of the characters serving within the government agents all over the world and more importantly getting involved in the clandestine activities described in the book.  They were all believable whether they really happened or they happened in the author’s mind.

The author wrote this book in 2018 and practically described the time and date that Russia would invade Ukraine.  In my opinion, he accurately describes the relationships between the current nations involved in the Russia/Ukraine war and that makes the fiction side of the book that much more believable. 

Who should read the book?  I think anyone who reads it will be glad they did.  Therefore, I would encourage everyone to read it.

Would I read it again?  I doubt that I would because there is nothing that would require additional reviews.

Would I give it as a gift?  It would make for a great gift to anyone who reads books, so Yes, I would give it as a gift.

See It Yet?



By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, October 14, 2022

It was in the 1990s when I read the book The Naked Communist, written by a former CIA agent, W. Cleon Skousen.  I was shocked beyond words.  It was very obvious to me that I had been living my life in a bubble of innocence for a very long time.  I hadn't read books until a couple of years AFTER I retired from the Coast Guard in 1985.  At age 44 I read I'm Okay; You're Okay and that started me on a crusade of sorts in regard to reading books.  Through high school, then college, I paid very little attention to politics.  Yes, I voted but I didn't really research who or what I was voting for.  While in the Coast Guard I was very familiar with the Hatch Act that prevented government employees from getting involved in politics so I didn't.  I did not see a need to; I was focused on my Coast Guard career.  Then in 1985 I got into the real estate business and if you believe in Business 101 as I do, you NEVER DO ANYTHING TO PISS OFF A POTENTIAL PAYING CUSTOMER, EVER!  Politics was once again something I did not focus on, until I read The Naked Communist. 

Suddenly a lot of the pieces of the puzzle that I had seen scattered about the world began to fall into place and it scared the hell out of me.  In short, in 1958 The Communist Party USA met and determined that they could NEVER overtake or overthrow America because it was one of the most well-armed civilian populations in the world.  A shooting war would serve no one.  But a psychological war, now that was another avenue that they decided they would pursue.  In fact, they made a conscious decision to demonstrate PATIENCE and quietly go about their pursuit of 45 very specific goals that IF and WHEN achieved, WOULD result in the overthrow of America.   

They also knew that what Vladmir Lenin had said about “capturing the children” was true.  That is where they began their attack on America by first going after the children BEFORE they could learn about the real American history and culture.  They would infiltrate the educational system and modify the curriculums so that the children would learn more about Communism than they would Capitalism.  In fact, they would learn to hate Capitalism and turn to Socialism which is just one step away from Communism.  One of the many graphics I created emphasized the #17 Communist objective:

As mentioned, it was Lenin who said: 

Give me four years to teach the children

and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. 

I don't have a large platform of people who follow me.  I did at one point when I had thousands of people in my database.  Then the platforms began to ban me from posting anything that was related to the contents of The Naked Communist.  I lost most of the people in my database as I disappeared from most of the social media platforms at the time.  I made a graphic like the one above for each of the 45 goals and posted them whenever and wherever I could.  They oftentimes were reposted but in all honestly, it was like pissing in the ocean; it made very little difference.   

Fast forward to 2020 and I am about as depressed as I have ever been.  I have seen what they wanted to achieve and honestly, I believe they have achieved their initial 45 goals.  Granted some of them have been slightly modified because of the changes that have taken place around the world but the basic premise of each goal?  Yes, I believe they HAVE been achieved them.  I can only imagine WHAT IF social media had been in place in 1958 when they originally put their goals to paper.  They would have achieved their goals in lightning speed and we would already be living on a one-world-communist-government planet.  They almost pulled it off, that is until 2016 when Donald Trump shocked the world and won the presidency.  That disrupted the 16-year plan that Obama (8) and Clinton (8) had devised that included a third world war.  Why a war?  First, they recognized and then advertised and even spoke freely about how they could not take over the masses when there are so many people (masses) on the planet.  Therefore, 13 of every 14 had to die or be killed.  How do you do that?  Through wars, starvation, disease and pandemics.  COVID-19 was their "warp-speed" project to reduce the world's population.   

President Reagan recognized what they were up to and he tried to warn the country and he had a much larger platform than I ever had.  He was part of a video that tried to warn everyone but no one was listening with the possible exception of Donald Trump.  Watch the video and decide for yourself.  It is not long.  Think about what they might have added to their 45 goals had social media been in existence in 1958.  That thought should give you nightmares!

Conspiracy Theory vs Alternative Believes vs Denial vs Truths





Written by Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, 24 September 2022


DEFINITION:  Conspiracy Theory:  an attempt to explain harmful or tragic events as the result of the actions of a small powerful group. Such explanations reject the accepted narrative surrounding those events; indeed, the official version may be seen as further proof of the conspiracy.

The HUGE problem I have with this definition is the inclusion of the word SMALL.  I have no idea as to why it was inserted.  Maybe it was included to funnel the readers focus to an actual small group of people when in fact those individuals that hold a “competing theory of what might have happened”, could be counted in the millions.

Case in point, the 2020 National Election.  Was the final count accurate or was it in error as millions upon millions of Americans believe?  That is NO SMALL POWERFUL GROUP!  It is a very large powerful group.  Regardless, why has the government and many social media platforms banned any reference to a possible bogus election result(s)?  Many people were banned from social media platforms for merely mentioning the 2020 election in other than favorable terms.

Case in point, face masks work.  The government decided that face masks work when in fact scientific studies by reputable medical researchers indicate masks do not work.  The same government that REQUIRED that everyone mask up has since indicated that they do not work as first thought and no longer require them.  Who was telling the truth and why would the government shame and ban all discussions to the contrary? 

Case in point, JFK assassination/murder.  I was 18 years old when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.  I remember thinking in 1963 that it seemed very unlikely that a single gunman could have pulled that murder off but what did this 18-year-old know?  Nothing.  I grudgingly accepted “the government’s explanation and investigation” and moved on.  Keep the early 1960s in mind.   Very few people believed in UFOs and most people believed that Lee Harvey Oswald single handedly murdered JFK.  That was then, this is now!  More people believe that more than one person shot JFK and well over 60% of the population now believe there ARE UFOs.  What changed?

Case in point, Japan conducted a very successful “SNEAK ATTACK” on Pearl Harbor.  Was it successful?  Not according to the Japanese, they wanted to destroy the American aircraft carriers and none of them were in port; NONE were destroyed.  Was it a “sneak attack” that no one knew about or saw coming?  That is what the government wants everyone to believe but is there an alternative belief regarding the attack?  Was it really a sneak attack that no one knew was coming?  History may be telling a completely different story than the one the government and news media had convinced millions upon millions of people around the world as being the true account of Pearl Harbor.  Only now in 2022 do we see reports of manipulated activities and more knowledge of the events leading up to Pearl Harbor and suddenly the story becomes very cloudy.  Keep reading.

Case in point, the attacks on 9/11.  I believed as everyone else did (or at least most did) that the Twin Towers were attacked by a group of 19 terrorists, it only made sense and the storyline was immediately confirmed by our government and the news media.  Who would believe any other explanation AT THAT TIME?  Hardly anyone!  Including me!  People putting forth a different story line were considered “conspiracy theory kooks.”  I remember hearing stories that that the attack was an “inside job” and I just wrote them off as did most everyone I know.  I have only recently watched several documentaries regarding 9/11 and I no longer accept what the media and government want me to believe. In fact, it appears, at least to me, to have been the biggest gold heist and power grab in the history of the world.  Keep reading.

Now to the point of this Nugget.  There are no such things as “conspiracy theories!”  Our government is the one that devised the term and it originated shortly after the Kennedy assassination to dispel rumors that the official storyline of the JFK assassination was somehow a false narrative of what actually happened.  The government wanted everyone to believe what the government told them to believe!  What I am going to say next is CRITICAL TO UNDERSTANDING THIS NUGGET!  If it were ONLY the U. S. Government that put forth the conspiracy theorist phrase, it may have been a short-lived phrase but it was NOT only the government.  Almost every major news outlet used the exact same phrase and wording to describe ANYONE who put forth a different narrative of the assassination and those people were considered “nut jobs!” and were to be disbelieved.

If you have never heard of the term Operation Mockingbird, go to  and you will not believe how the U. S. Government worked very closely with the news media to put forth stories that the government wanted the people to hear.  Whether those storylines were true or not didn’t matter, the government wanted “the people” to believe what they wanted the people to believe.  We have seen the exact same scenario involving COVID-19.  Absolutely no dissenting opinions were/are allowed.  Then as is always most always the case, the truth eventually is uncovered and everyone changes their “official storyline.”

In the case of the JFK assassination, let’s assume for a minute that the U. S. Government WAS somehow involved in the assassination.  What better way to cast 100% belief that the assassination was conducted by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald than to convene an investigatory body of individuals selected BY the U. S. Government and consisting of mostly U. S. Government officials.  If you are going to bury the real story, what better way than to have the people who would be most adversely affected, conduct the investigation?  Was it an INDEPENDENT investigation?  Absolutely not IF the government was actually involved.  Since it was the government that conducted the investigation, “we the people” were simply expected to believe the government’s determination of what happened and then just move on!  No questions were to be asked.  Alternative opinions, questions and facts were to be disregarded.  Anyone who thought differently than the government’s storyline was branded as “conspiracy theorists” and nut jobs!  No one wanted to be labeled as being a nut job so the questions went unasked and therefore unanswered.

DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND WHAT I AM SAYING!  I am not saying that JFK was murdered by our own government.  I am not saying that 9/11 was an inside job, I am saying that when the government does its own investigation and the people for the most part are left in the dark, who are we to believe any differently?  Are we to simply accept to be true what the government claims to be true?  I think the answer to that is yes if you are a member of the U. S. Government; that is exactly what they want.  We the people were to fall in line and not only believe the government story line; we would repeat it as being true without exceptions.

So, what about Pearl Harbor?  For as long as I can remember, I was told and taught that Japan conducted a “sneak attack” on Pearl Harbor.  No one from the FDR administration to the local street sweeper had any clue that the attack was coming.  Contrary to this narrative, I strongly hope you research the link below to an official memo written  by LCDR McCollom of the U. S. Navy and given to none other than the FDR Administration in October of 1940, let me repeat that date, 1940.  Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941 over a year later.  What did the memo say?  It laid out the steps that if taken would PROVOKE Japan to take some form of military action against the United States thus propelling America into World War II.  Why was this important?  Americans wanted NO PART of WWII but President Roosevelt did.  His hands were tied unless “we the people” changed our collective minds and then supported America’s entry into the war.  What changed the minds of Americans in 1941?  The attack on Pearl Harbor.  I doubt that FDR expected the attack on Pearl Harbor but he did expect an attack somewhere.  Read the memo.  Most if not all of the specific steps laid out by LCDR McCollom were in fact taken.  The result?  An attack on Pearl Harbor.  Our government provoked Japan leaving it no alternative but to attack us; at least that is what I personally believe, you can make up your own mind.  The point is that we were told one story, when in fact there were many untold stories behind the scenes that could have resulted in the attack.  Decide for yourself what the truth may be but do your own research as I have.    From the Internet:  On October 7, 1940, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum of the Office of Naval Intelligence submitted a memo to Navy Captains Walter Anderson and Dudley Knox (whose endorsement is included in the following scans). Captains Anderson and Knox were two of President Roosevelt's most trusted military advisors.”  Here is the link to the McCollom memo:

The 9/11 investigation was a repeat of the one-sided process very much like the JFK assassination investigation.  The government conducted the investigation!  But what if the government was involved in the attack?  It would be like the fox guarding the hen house!  If the government was involved because it would cover for its involvement.  Do you honestly believe that they would discover facts that would implicate themselves in the attack?  Absolutely not! Here are two links that might open your mind to an alternative storyline about 9/11:

SOMETIMES, you open up a box of puzzle pieces and you can’t see the bigger picture.  Then as you begin to match up similar edges and colors, the “bigger picture” becomes very clear.  This is one of the longer paragraphs from a book that you will ever read.  It puts all of the puzzle pieces that is KNOWN to be true about 9/11 into one place (like the pieces lying about on top of your table) and suddenly the “big picture” reveals itself; slightly at first and then suddenly, very clearly.  Read it for yourself and then you decide what is true and what is not!

“You know, they are asking you to believe that on September 11, 2001, nineteen Arab men armed with box cutters, managed by a guy living in a cave fortress, half way around the world on kidney dialysis, using  a satellite phone and a laptop, directed the most sophisticated operation on the most heavily defended airspace in the world, overpowering the passengers and military trained pilots in the cockpit of four commercial aircraft before flying those planes wildly off course for an hour, without being molested by a single interceptor fighter plane.  These nineteen hijackers were supposed to be devoutly religious fundamentalists who like to drink alcohol, snort cocaine and live with pink haired strippers, managed to knock down three buildings with 2 planes in New York.   While in D.C., a pilot who couldn’t handle a single engine Cessna was able to fly a 757 in an eight-thousand-foot descent in a 270-degree corkscrew turn coming in exactly level with the ground, hitting the Pentagon exactly at the budget analyst office where the Department of Defense staffers were investigating the mystery of the 2.3 trillion dollars the defense secretary had just announced missing in a press conference the day before.   Luckily for the public, the news anchors knew who did it within minutes, the pundits knew within hours, and the administration knew within days, while the evidence literally fell from sky and into the lap of the FBI when a hijacker’s passport was found intact, blocks away from the World Trade Center.  For some reason, a group of crazy conspiracy theorists demanded an investigation of the greatest attack on American soil in history.  That investigation was delayed, underfunded, and set up to fail; a conflict of interest and a cover up from start to finish.  It was based on testimony extracted by torture, records of which were destroyed, and which failed to mention building seven, able danger, PTech, Sibel Edmonds, Osama bin Laden, the CIA, and the ongoing drills of hijacked planes that were being simulated at the precise time the events were actually happening.  It was lied to by the Pentagon, the CIA, and the Administration.  The President and Vice President testified in secret, off the record, not under oath, and behind closed doors.  It did not bother to look at who funded the attacks because they claimed that was of little practical significance.  Still the 9/11 commission did a brilliant job of answering all the questions the public had, except the questions of the victims’ families.  No one involved as much as lost their job and the commission determined that it was a ‘failure of imagination’ because no one in our government could imagine terrorists flying planes into buildings, except the Pentagon, FEMA, NORAD and the NRO.  The DIA destroyed 2.5 terabytes on Able Danger because it probably wasn’t important.  The SEC destroyed their investigations into ongoing insider trading before the attacks, NIST has classified the data they used for a model of the WTC Building 7 collapse and the FBI has argued that all of their investigation of 9/11 should be kept secret from the public.  Osama bin Laden lived in a cave fortress in the hills of Afghanistan then he was hiding out in Tora Bora, but somehow, he got away.  Then he lived in Abbottabad for years taunting the most comprehensive intelligence dragnet, employing the most sophisticated technology in the history of the world for a decade, releasing videos with complete impunity and getting younger and younger as he did.   So, before finally being found in a daring SEAL team raid, which wasn’t recorded on video in which he didn’t resist or use his wife as a human shield and in which this crack team of special forces panicked and killed this unarmed man, supposedly the best couple paranoid, source of intelligence about the dastardliest terrorist on the entire planet. Then they dumped his body into the ocean before telling anyone about it then, a couple dozen of those team members died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.  That is the story of 9/11 brought to you by the media.  If you have any questions about this story, you are a bat shit crazy, paranoid, tin foil hat wearing, dog abusing, baby hater and will be reviled by everyone.  If you love your country and or freedom and happiness and rainbows, rock-n-roll, puppy dogs, apple pie, and your grandma, you will never ever express doubts about any part of this story to anyone, ever!  The government’s motto is ‘Ignorance is Strength.’”

From the book Methodical Illusion written by Rebekah Roth.

I have read all FOUR books written by Rebekah Roth; a fictional story LACED WITH FACTS about 9/11.  Her assimilation of FACTS makes for a totally different and very disturbing story about 9/11. 

·         Sneak Attack on Pearl Harbor

·         The Korean War

·         Vietnam

·         Assassination of President Kennedy

·         9/11

·         COVID-19

As said above, do your own research, come to your own conclusions but for God’s sake, DON’T JUST ACCEPT WHAT THE GOVERNMENT AND THE NEWS MEDIA FEED YOU.  You ARE being fed if you get your news ONLY from these two sources.  There is a wealth of information available; all YOU have to do is LET IT IN!  If you discover that the government and the news media have lied to you regarding one story, would that be the only story they lied to you about or are there more?  THERE ARE DEFINITELY MORE!
