The Left’s Petard Under Strain

I recently ran across a tweet thread (are we still calling them ‘tweets?’) from a twitter user going by the handle, @AndrewPolino.  Reading his tweet thread, I found it to be generally representative of the ignorance exhibited by the Left.  So I thought I might show it to you.

Now understand: I refuse to call any of these folks ‘Far’ Left because they simply aren’t. Their poorly-informed/poorly-formed ideas are mainstream Leftist beliefs that have metastasized through their body politic like a genetically modified Chinese virus.  Granted, these loons are radical and ‘far’ removed from reality or the standards of western civilization, but that’s a topic for another day.

BreathEasy is Shifting Gears!

The BreathEasy App has fulfilled its purpose and is now discontinued.

Yes, you read that right, the BreathEasy App is now officially retired. The conditions that forced its creation during COVID and the lockdowns have “passed” and the BreathEasy App is now collecting social security and taking it easy watching daytime TV.


But if the BreathEasy App is being retired, does this mean that BreathEasy is shutting down?

Absolutely not!

BreathEasy is shifting its mission to directly support small business.

Opening a New Front for Liberty

It is my opinion that our great nation is about to enter a period of rebuilding after the horrendous torture we all have suffered together over the last several years.

And if you’ve learned anything about me over the years, you know I am a huge supporter of small business.  Helping small business is my sincere passion and there’s nobody I respect more than the entrepreneur who risks it all to strike out on his own. The BreathEasy app was purpose built to protect small business patriots from illegal mandates. That mission hasn’t changed.

Therefore, I’d like to announce that BreathEasy is rebranding to BreathEasy Business Consulting & Bookkeeping. The new mission of BreathEasy will be to support Small Business owners directly with key services that every small business owner needs.

The Need

We all agree that there is a massive shortage of skilled tradesman. The need is undeniable. And beyond this need is the need for these tradesmen to be successful.

It does our nation no good if we have skilled men and women rebuilding our nation if those same small business owners go bankrupt because they lack the skills they need that our education system failed to teach.

While BreathEasy will specialize in advising Trades businesses, the services provided are equally applicable no matter the industry. Business owners from any sector are welcome to join me.

Meeting the Need

As part of this pivot to directly support small business, I’d like to introduce the services BreathEasy now provides:

Business Consulting and Management

  • Do you need a data-driven go/no go decision for an expansion or asset purchase?
  • Do you need assistance in optimizing your inventory?
  • Maybe you could use a hand creating email marketing campaign content?
  • Or optimize your business processes?

If this sounds like you, then please, go to and schedule a free call. Together we’ll get your business or start – up humming like a well-oiled machine.

Check Out BreathEasy Now!

In addition to the specialized services offered above, BreathEasy has slots for 10 bookkeeping clients. Ask yourself:

  • Do I have a good handle on my cash flows?
  • Are my books organized?
  • Do I even HAVE books?
  • Have I seen my Profit & Loss Statement lately?

If you need assistance in setting up your books, cleaning up your books or simply managing your books, BreathEasy provides expert bookkeeping services to keep you informed with the most up to date information about the health of your company. I’m only accepting 10 clients to ensure I can provide the level of expert care necessary, so don’t delay!

The Shameless Plug

And, finally, the reason why you haven’t seen many essays from me lately and the absolutely shameless plug:

Over the last several months, I have been diligently working on a textbook that teaches the concepts and skills necessary to succeed in small business. I call it The Tradesman’s MBA and is available for pre-order now and is expected to be available July 15th.

Pre-Order Today

The Tradesman’s MBA has two target audiences:

  1. The start-up who simply doesn’t know where or how to start, and
  2. The small to medium-sized business already in operation that could benefit from more technical concepts to optimize operations.

In both cases, The Tradesman’s MBA teaches numerous business concepts and skills taught in America’s business schools to help you succeed.


We are Americans! Shouldn’t the skills necessary to start and operate a small business be required knowledge?


The Tradesman’s MBA gives you the comprehensive knowledge and skills you need to set the firmest foundation possible for your business to ensure success.

The Tradesman’s MBA leads you step by step and distills down all the key information taught in today’s business schools so that you are equipped to tackle any business question. If you’ve ever had questions about the following topics, this guide is for you:

  • Business Formation and Planning – Learn to plan your fight and fight your plan.
  • Finance and Accounting – Learn the concepts and techniques you absolutely must know to decipher what your financial statements are telling you
  • Operations, Project Management and Inventory Management – The techniques and mathematics behind it all
  • Key Metrics – Learn to measure your business’ performance and go beyond the simple P&L to dive deep on your business’ operations.

I wrote The Tradesman’s MBA to help small business and entreprenuers to succeed by teaching them the skills and techniques they need to avoid the traps and tribulations that so many others (including me!) have suffered.

The Ask

Friends, if you happen to know of a small business owner or entrepreneur that you think might benefit from BreathEasy’s services or The Tradesman’s MBA itself, please share this essay with them. Let them know that they are not alone and that BreathEasy is there to render any assistance they might need!

Friends, I am exceedingly optimistic about our country as we move into this new era, regardless of how things look right now.

Won’t you join me to help rebuild America?

Sincerely and Ever Yours,

R. Altomare, MBA, PMP, CSSBB

The Bipartisan Love of Domestic Surveillance

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) section 702 was enacted as part of the FISA Amendments Act of 2008. This section ostensibly allows the U.S. government to conduct surveillance on foreign targets, yet the system is used continually by the NSA, FBI and others to collect on American citizens without justification, without a warrant and without any connection to a crime.

Similar to the infant FBI in its J. Edgar Hoover days, the criminal activities carried out by government angents include backdoor searches, dragnet bulk election, unmasking and targeting lists which all open the door for a flood of abuses. Since the 2008 amendments this has been allowed to continue with bipartisan support from Congress. Repeated abuse, lies and cover-ups have continually come before the FISA court. NSA continued to demonstrate a criminal disregard for the law until it was forced to abandon (allegedly) it’s unconstitutional bulk collection. Yet the FBI continues with similar abuse. In fact for over a decade, the federal government has NOT ONCE been in compliance with either the law or the Constitution.

All of this abuse was confirmed by three FISA court opinions released by the Director of National Intelligence.


In this opinion it was reported that the FBI had conducted over 3.1 million queries (in just one system) on U.S. persons’ collected under FISA 702 without proper justification. The FISA court in this case declared that these actions violated the fourth amendment, yet predictably the court still refused to require warrants. Instead the court said agents “which have no understanding of the legal requirements” must document their reasons for violating the Constitution. Perhaps, that way the overseers that show up every two years and look at a handful of these inquiries might have something to read while they go through the motions of rubber-stamping the crimes committed by the FBI.

House Republicans have confirmed in their most recent vote that they still support the criminal activity of the FBI; they have NO regard for the rule of law; and have NO respect for the people they represent. How can the House GOP make a show of complaining about the treatment of J6 protestors while simultaneously affirming the gestapo apparatus responsible? Now the bill goes to the Senate. It is likely that the democrat-controlled Senate will be in lock-step with the Republican-controlled House since they serve the same masters who profit from the surveillance state and war machine.

So, the Supreme Court has decided to put Donald Trump back on the ballot. Cue the gasps and groans from the apparatchiks of the Cabal. In fact, their predictability is almost boring by now.  Keith Olberman specifically called out the Communist justices by name (Kagan, Jackson and Sotomayor ) to express his profanity-laced displeasure.  This, of course, is telling of their entire playbook; put idealogues on the court as a backstop against the Will of the People and hold them to account if they dare step out of lockstep. Could you be more transparent in your tyrannical aims?

And, as if that has-been Olberman wasn’t enough, untold numbers of media pundits, political figures and Hollywood “celebrities” have all shrieked together as if on cue.  It’s almost as if this was among their last desperate plays to avoid justice. The drama is real, folks. President Trump, the Grim Reaper of the Old World Order, is making a comeback, and everyone who tried to bring him down is sweating bullets. Talk about a gut-wrenching feeling.

You know the old saying,

If you’re going to make a play for the throne, you can’t fail.

Consider what we’ve witnessed over these last 8 years (almost a decade!).  They have thrown literally everything they have at the man (and by extension, us); Russian collusion, tax evasion fraud, Stormy Daniels, the “insurrection”, and even Covid-19. But alas, all their efforts have been about as effective as a Liberal Arts degree.

How is it that every Marxist hero they throw at President Trump is already utterly corrupt and already a criminal? Their hubris to believe that the skeletons in their own closet won’t trip them up and land their own neck on the chopping block?  This should indicate to you how utterly corrupt our Justice System has become; they are counting on it!

Think about it: every hero the Deep State has paraded as the one to take down the MAGA tyrant has ended up facing their own legal dramas. Michael Avenatti, remember him? The legal maestro who promised to bring Trump to his knees on “The View.” Now he’s sitting in prison, reading “The Art of the Deal” for trying to shake down a Leftist Ally, Nike.  And you can be damn sure that Big Fani Willis and Letitia James are looking real hard at the fate that befell Mr. Avenatti. If it were possible to see one’s future, this is how you’d do it.

And let’s not forget E. Jean Carroll, the Hail Mary attempt at accusing Trump of a lingerie section assault straight out of a Law & Order episode (LITERALLY!). It’s like they picked the most delusional play on the playbook and threw it into the end zone, hoping for a miracle. The sexual assault plot straight from a TV show? Really? It’s almost cute how low they’ve sunk.

And here’s an interesting inference we can make by the plays these simpletons are running: The Deep State’s ammo is running lower than a clearance sale at The Dollar Store. They are, in a very real sense, running out of cards to play, which, of course means they will need to invent a new card to lay on the table.

And it is this eventuality that we all must 1) expect, and 2) plan for. We are on a battlefield and we all are combatants, so start acting like it.

As the Deep State faces its inevitable demise, Trump seems to be sitting pretty, knowing their last desperate move is approaching. Brace yourselves, folks and never forget, Noah built his Ark before it began raining. And so too, should you.

PS: In other news, I am working feverishly with BreathEasy app developers and grassroots voter integrity groups to permanently reorient BreathEasy’s mission to be your  tool to report on Voter Fraud issues in the run – up to election day and election day itself. There will be more information in the coming weeks on this, so keep an eye out.

But here’s a sneak peak:

The BreathEasy App will be your tool to report on voter fraud issues at your polling location and report it in real time.  The information you provide will be immediately forwarded to grassroots voter integrity groups for investigation and follow up.  All the same functionalities will remain, such as taking pictures for photographic evidence and new tags will also be created so you can classify the sort of fraud you are witnessing.

Stay Tuned!

If you lead or are a member of a Voter Integrity group and you’d like to learn how to get access to the fraud report database, please contact me directly at

Ohio Sheriff Warns of Terror Threats

Texas Upholding the Law of the Land

Excuse Me, Sir!

What ever happened to the maxim, Live and Let Live?  If our experience during the lock downs was any indicator, evil’s mask is now fully ripped off (pardon the pun) and any pretense of allowing a person to pursue his bliss unhindered is long gone.

Over the last several years we have seen stores attacking their own customers for refusing to wear a useless surgical mask.  We saw restaurants and other private establishments checking the medical status of their patrons before being allowed inside. We saw police checking the papers of citizens on the street.  I wonder, instead of having to carry an inoculation card around to prove our ‘vaccination’ status, wouldn’t it just be simpler if we just sewed a symbol on our coats? Maybe a yellow star or something? The old ways are the best ways, amirite?

Worse still, many of these businesses were enthusiastic enforcers of the illegal government mandates. As an example of just how infiltrated our culture has become, did you know that in the early 20th century, many American businesses were against the automatic withholding of income taxes for the simple reason that it forced businesses to become uncompensated agents of the newly established Internal Revenue Service (and continue as such today)?

But not this time around.  This time, not only was there only a modicum of pushback by businesses to join the Mask Enforcement Bureau, but some actually embraced their inner tyrant in the exercise of this new-found, corrupt and illegal power over their fellow citizen. I should create a patch that reads, “I Was a Conservative In Portland During the Lockdowns”

With this in mind, I wanted to share with you something I found online that I felt was a good example of the underlying thinking of the people who happily tried to put the “un-vaccinated” into concentration camps.  The truly horrific thing here is that this person honestly believes what they’re saying. Have a look:

“The shopping cart is the ultimate litmus test for whether a person is capable of self-governing.

“To return the shopping cart is an easy, convenient task and one which we all recognize as the correct, appropriate thing to do. To return the shopping cart is objectively right. There are no situations other than dire emergencies in which a person is not able to return their cart.

“Simultaneously, it is not illegal to abandon your shopping cart. Therefore, the shopping cart presents itself as the apex example of whether a person will do what is right without being forced to do it. No one will punish you for not returning the shopping cart, no one will fine you or kill you for not returning the shopping cart, you gain nothing by returning the shopping cart. You must return the shopping cart out of the goodness of your own heart. You must return the shopping cart because it is the right thing to do. Because it is correct.

“A person who is unable to do this is no better than an animal, an absolute savage who can only be made to do what is right by threatening them with a law and the force that stands behind it.

“The Shopping Cart is what determines whether a person is a good or bad member of society.”

I hope the tyranny that is only lightly sleeping in this person’s mind is as visible to you as it is to me. All this author needs is a government mandate that requires putting your cart back and empowers individual citizens to report any ignorant shopper foolish enough to not comply.

But I want you to see something: the writer’s underlying premise. She asserts that a person’s right to self-govern is contingent on their ability to self-govern.  This, my friends, is the very top of the slippery slope and completely misapprehends what a ‘right’ is at all.  There is no recovery from this starting point and it all goes downhill from this underlying assumption.

A belief based on the premise of contingent rights is an abomination to Humanity and Human Respect itself.

Now I’m not here to argue whether returning a shopping cart is good, bad, or completely devoid of any value at all.  After all, opinions may differ on the subject (the very definition of ‘subjective’). But I would like to highlight that this short passage of someone pretending to intellect and insight is the very epitome and embodiment of the rotten reasoning displayed by the Karens that we encountered during the illegal lockdowns and mask ‘mandates.’

The Road Paved with Good Intentions Inevitably Leads To…

Let’s engage in a thought experiment to show our citizen-tyrant where their reasoning ultimately leads.

Remaining within the context of the grocery store, this anonymous author, believes that anyone NOT using the corrals are inherently ‘bad’ and summarily incapable and unworthy of self-governance.  OK. Now consider the implication she creates: This inability to self-govern means that some authority must step in to correct and manage the noncompliant citizen.

But this same grocery store also provides kiosks for self check-out, doesn’t it? And yet no similar requirement to make use of this other employee-reduction tool exists within the author’s mind.  Why not? I’ll simply say because she hasn’t thought of it yet!  But she will…

The grocery store provided these machines for use by customers just as with the shopping cart corrals.  All that is missing is a slick marketing campaign by a grocer attempting to stay in business in an environment of constantly rising costs (I hear Pfizer’s marketing department might be available) to convince the shopping public that using self check-out is the ‘right and good’ thing to do; anyone failing to use the self check-out kiosks generously provided by the grocer is inherently ‘bad’ and suitable for shunning or arrest (God help you if you went to the human cashier maskless…)

Think I’m kidding? Think I’m exaggerating?  Don’t forget, these are the same people who spent 50 years preaching ‘my body, my choice’ to justify killing children but when the marketing changed, suddenly the individual had no right to refuse what was injected into their body. The intellectual dishonesty and logical contortions this requires puts Wetzel’s Pretzels to shame.

So now that people have been instructed that using self check-out is the ‘right and good’ thing to do, the grocer may now reduce the grocery’s workforce.  See how that works? That simple and repeated marketing meant to change behavior and imbued with ‘goodness’ ultimately leads to the firings of grocery store employees around the world. And why? Because the road to hell is paved with good intentions (and marketing).

I’m reminded of a woman I dated in the 1990’s.  She was nice enough; smart, pretty, and clever.  Unfortunately, her parents were very liberal and she graduated from Middlebury College, a small private, liberal Arts college in Vermont. She didn’t stand a chance of maintaining any individuality of thought after being steeped for so long in such an illiberal environment.

Politically, there was little we had in common, but if we avoided political conversations, things went generally smoothly.  Now, as you might imagine, she was fully invested in the recycling religion. She separated garbage with all the solemnity of Catholics taking Communion and she never missed a chance to try and ‘re-educate’ me on the topic (it was a short relationship).

That is, until one day when I told her that I care about the homeless too much to recycle.  The quizzical look on her face told me that I had introduced a concept she was struggling to understand, and I was loving it.  So I explained it to her:

“The existence of garbage and the desire to recycle has created a micro-economy in every city in the United States. This micro-economy has producers, consumers, retailers and cash flow just like any other marketplace. I am not talking about the garbage men who pick up your nicely separated trash. I am talking about the homeless.

“The homeless absolutely depend on their ability to pick through garbage, pull out the aluminum cans and sell them to recycling centers. This meager amount, such as it is, allows them to earn an income and provides them the ability to survive within an urban center. This micro-economy provides a service to the city (recycling) while at the same time provides cash flow to those who need it most and are willing to engage in the work.

“If you separate your garbage yourself and allow the garbage company to collect it before the homeless can collect it themselves, you have effectively made the homeless even more desperate than they already are by removing a key source of income.

“The free market has already provided a solution and rendered moot the need to separate our trash. Don’t you care about the homeless?”

Forcing my girlfriend to choose between two sects within her Liberal religion was just icing on my rhetorical cake. And I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure that my 1990s Middleberry-educated girlfriend would get along like a house on fire with the shopping cart author.

I can just hear it now.

“Separating your trash for recycling is the ultimate litmus test for whether a person is capable of self-governing.  Recycling is an easy, convenient task and one which we all recognize as the correct, appropriate thing to do. Recycling is objectively right. There are no situations other than dire emergencies in which a person is not able to recycle.”

The Solution

As we’ve seen over and over again, it appears that it is inherent within Human Nature itself to desire power over others. Whether it is forcing others to wear masks, return shopping carts or shame people from smoking in public, we will never escape Karens, in all their forms, and their inherent desire to control their fellow citizens. We also will never escape the dogmatic and evil marketing meant to force us into these frameworks of acceptable thought (yet more control).

The solution to this is not yet more control or a banning of this or that.  It is but mere education on the nature of Natural Rights, the very foundation of the American Constitution that we may knowledgeably resist control by others and create a truly free world.

Here’s to watching the other shoe drop in 2024!

Good Luck,
