Todd Blodgett of Clear Lake Iowa is an accomplished writer and political strategist. He has been the most-popular writer in the history of the Globe Gazette, been published in numerous news publications, and has written a book, “Republican Crackhead.”

“We shuttin’ yo party down,” the belligerent woman shouted at startled diners in New York, as her fellow troublemakers smashed glasses, broke plates, toppled tables, and overturned chairs, before ordering patrons to leave the restaurant. In Pittsburgh, an obese black woman, affiliated with Black Lives Matter (BLM), rushed over to a table where senior citizens were seated. The crude behemoth snagged a full glass of beer from their table and chugged it, before joining her fellow anarchists as they tore up the outdoor cafe. Customers witnessing this, in near-disbelief, understood that these culture destroyers want America dismantled, and replaced with a leftist, racist nation. “F**k dem white peoples dat done built da system,” a subversive shouted, as the throng advanced. Radicals then struck a white bicyclist, damaged additional property, and physically threatened even more innocent, horrified people.

Since the Memorial Day death of George Floyd, a Minneapolis felon and drug user who died while in police custody, protests have raged all across America. In Portland, activists have infested the streets nearly every night, demanding the removal of monuments, increased police accountability, social justice, and the defunding of law enforcement. Portland’s leftist mayor, and several other Democratic mayors and Governors, are tacitly condoning this looting, arson, physical assault, statue-toppling, and murder – by refusing to take substantive action. But their silence encourages more violence. This isn’t the first time that such perpetrators have reared their subversive views in these United States. In 1968, when anarchists, hippies and other violence-prone demonstrators rioted in Chicago, then-mayor Richard Daley announced that he – with approval from the Governor, and then-President Lyndon Johnson – had ordered the cops, deputies, and national guardsmen, to “shoot to kill” such barbarians. It worked. But compare mayor Daley’s response with that of Minneapolis’s Democratic mayor and Minnesota’s Democratic Governor. Not only did they NOT prevent Minneapolis from being destroyed, but in the aftermath, Minnesota’s Democratic-controlled legislature passed a $130,000,000 tax hike to repair the damages. That’s insane, but it’s happening – because elected Leftists fear holding these dumb, berserk malefactors accountable; they side with them, and against the lawful taxpayers who pay their salaries.

But how does destroying businesses help the cause of Black Lives Matter? Many of the wrecked cafes, hair salons, pawn shops, and other establishments had employed, and/or were owned, by black people. Blacks also comprised a substantial portion of their customer base. Many BLM protesters are arrogant – yet, clueless – young whites, with degrees in Social Justice, bagpiping, Bangladeshi Literature, Lesbian Studies, and other useless majors. They’re angry, because they work as baristas or UBER drivers. Such fools won’t soon cease, but sometimes, they get burned. When a protester in Portland tried tossing a Molotov cocktail, things didn’t go quite as planned. After inadvertently setting himself aflame, he raced down the street. The fiasco was reminiscent of Michael Jackson and Richard Pryor – who, decades ago, accidentally set themselves afire. There’s a hilarious YouTube video of this incident, accompanied by Johnny Cash’s hit song, ‘Ring of Fire’. The fool basically dances, with moves which might be called the Molotov Shuffle, or the Hot foot two-step. The 1960s slogan of the radicals applies: “Burn, baby, burn.”

Such looters, arsonists, rioters and killers are actually feral people, whose existence burdens law-abiding taxpayers. So, how would lawful Americans NOT benefit from their eradication? To stop this nonsense, law-abiding US citizens should be allowed to carry a gun, and stand their ground, anywhere in America.

If the tormentors continue harassing their prey and become violent, then the victims can introduce such losers to a loaded gun. Where’s the downside? After all, when the lives and property of innocent, law-abiding US citizens are threatened, the would-be victims should be allowed, absent ANY negative legal consequences, to take out the trash. INNOCENT lives of lawful Americans matter, but hateful, culture-wrecking looters, arsonists, and murderers must be made to stop their mayhem – one way, or another.


Todd Blodgett, who is the author of ‘REPUBLICAN CRACKHEAD’, served on the White House staff of President Ronald Reagan, from 1985-87. He also served on the 1988 presidential campaign staff of George H.W. Bush. Mr. Blodgett then worked for the late political strategist Lee Atwater, and for the Republican National Committee, and the FBI. Todd Blodgett lives in Tyler, Texas, and Clear Lake, Iowa.

    BLM Protesters horribly harass elderly Pittsburgh diners, scaring them with loud taunts while taking their food right off their plate. These Anarchists, not protesters, are Biden voters, but he has no control and nothing to say. Disgraceful. Never seen anything like it. Thugs! And because of weak and pathetic Democrat leadership, this thuggery is happening in other Democrat-run cities and states. Must shut them down fast. Biden and his most Liberal in Senate running mate, Kamala, won’t even talk about it. They won’t utter the words, LAW & ORDER!!!!

    Interpreting Todd Blodgett speak.

    Blodgett: I worked for the FBI.
    Reality: I was a paid informant because they caught
    me doing bad things and gave a deal to keep me out of prison.
    I was a rat & snitch to save my sorry ass.

    Blodgett: I worked for President Ronald Reagan.
    Reality: I was a low level lackey & minion only there because of family connections.
    Basically I was the office gopher and errand boy.

    Blodgett: I infiltrated white supremacist groups.
    Reality: I was really one of them.

    Blodgett: I was a member of the exclusive University Club in Washington DC.
    Reality: I was kicked out of the club for numerous reasons.
    Among them I engaged in racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, and misogynistic conduct.
    I also used non-joking references to and comments about women,
    African-Americans, Jews and Native Americans in a derogatory and offensive manner.

        First (whoever you are): I haven’t ever referred to the University club of Washington, DC, as any kind of “exclusive” place. You’re putting words in my mouth.

        2. While I was a member there for many years, I don’t raise the subject of the U club; how is it relevant?

        3. Neither the FBI or the US Dept of Justice ever threatened me with prison when the FBI sent some agents to my office, to recruit me to work as a paid informant. When informants are PAID (as opposed to not being paid), that’s a good indication that they’re working of their own volition.

        4. It’s fair to speculate what would’ve been my fate had I NOT agreed to work for the bureau. But as it happened, it was my choice to work as a full-time FBI informant, and I did so – for nearly three years.

        5. I was given the option to resign from the U club, by the club’s Board of Trustees, and I declined. Instead, I sued the club and every trustee who voted to expel me. I lost that lawsuit, but shouldn’t have.

        6. The things I said while at that club were protected by the first amendment. Americans have a right to free speech, which I was denied by that club.

        7. I’ve never claimed to have been anything but a low-level member of Ronald Reagan’s White House staff. When he hired me, I was 24 years old; just 18 months out of college. Yes, what you termed as “family connections” got me the position. I’ve never denied that, either. Reagan’s brother, J. Neil Reagan, arranged for me to meet RR when I was 15, in 1976.

        8. I was not, nor have I ever been, a white supremacist, an anti-Semite, or anti-gay, or any type of bigot.

    We have watched the video on the you tube of these BLM people engaging in their antics. It is true that a heavy negro woman stole someone’s beer right off of their table and drank it down rather rapidly.

    And the quotes Mr. Blodgett attributes to these people are accurate. But if would behoove Mr. Blodgett if he will clean up the language spoken by such individuals.

    We know they speak their “jive” lingo, which some call “ebobic”. But it would be easier to read if the statements these people make are cleaned up a bit, so more readers can understand what they said.

    Many years ago, my husband and I and another couple saw a movie at the Park 70 theater called “Airplane”. It starred the lady who played Beaver Cleaver’s mother from “Leave it to Beaver.” Mrs. Cleaver played a passenger on this big airplane who spoke jive.

    But I do not speak jive.

    Thank you.

      If Todd “cleaned it up a bit”, the left wing nuts would accuse him of lying, like they do all the time.

      We as conservatives have to tell the truth, and cite sources, then are still accused of lying or misleading. The liberal/socialist/Marxist/ borderline communists don’t, because they feel that way.

    BLM has been associated with a lot of violent outbreaks. Prudence demands they be investigated and their true status made public. I think they are a militant Marxist/Socialist revolutionary group sent out to destabilize our already divided society during a national Presidential campaign. They are getting a free pass from leftist leaders in the very cities they destroy and that means something very organized and sinister is going on!!

    Democrats have recently joined forces in blaming President Trump for fanning the flames of violence. While this is nothing new, it is concerning evidence of a pattern among the left. More particularly, the party that seeks to lead the nation is unwilling to take responsibility for the misdeeds of its members and is always looking to blame others. Americans should not trust this party to lead them…

    Entirely too many posts shown below not only glorify violence against protesters with legitimate grievances, but they endorse the vigilante justice of the sort which is routinely suborned by Todd Blodgett, right here in north Iowa.

    I am, therefore, compelled to state that I am appalled, even horrified, that any north Iowans think that Blodgett’s vigilantism, and anyone else’s, is, in any way, justified.

    You scary freaks sicken me, right to the very core of my soul. I take solace in knowing I shall not have to spend eternity with any of you.

    Some of you really have it “in” for Blodgett too. At least he puts his opinion out here and he speaks it well. So, you don’t agree with him, OK, but why run him down for getting drug dealers to leave out of Mason city?

    I for one am glad he does what the law keeps cops from being able to.

    Mr. Blodgett learned to play hardball politics from a racist Republican named Lee Atwater, a nasty campaign manager who used the race card to elect Bush as president. Atwater hated all minorities.

    Ronnie Raygun, another hateful bigot, also befriended this spoiled, drug addicted gun nut, Blodgett. Raygun hired him to work for his White house, not because Todd deserved the job, but because of the Blodgett family’s connections.

    So after Raygun and Bush were put out to pasture, Blodgett bought a music company called Resistance Records, he makes a fortune selling CDs to Nazis.

They know about Blodgett bringing some real rough guys to Mason, to force some drug dealers and thugs, from places like Chicago, and Detroit, & Waterloo, ect, to leave town. So far the MCPD looks the other way, and that is a good thing as far as I am concerned.

        There are just some things cops are not allowed to do, so if Blodgett doesn’t do it, who will?

          AMPI, you might change your mind if you know somebody who was roughed up by some bullies who carried switch blade knives, which was what happened to the son of friends of ours, who got on the wrong side of some friends of Mr. Blodgett.

          This young man lost his job due to a drinking problem, and the only way he could make the same money was to sell dope. Ya, this was wrong, and not legal, we get that. But that was his business.

          Blodgett had no right to call in some big brutes with swastika tattoos on their arms and heavy chains and knives. When their son refused to get out of his rental house, those horrible thugs stomped and kicked and slugged him so hard he spent four days in Mercy hospital.

          He doesn’t even know one verse out of that there bible.

          It amuses me that people keep compareing Trump to Obama (The greatest president in decades)
          when he hasn’t been in office the past three and a half years.
          Trump is a showboat president who dodge the military and a coward that doesn’t have the guts to tell the truth.
          He deserves an award alright the lying to the American People award. What a jerk.

    Who is running Black Lives Matter? Where is the money going? Who is handling the finances. The feds need to follow the money and take down this organization.
    I am sick and tired of lawlessness and the Democrats who are allowing this to happen to our country. If these people who support BLM don’t like the way things are in this country, then they should leave. All this organization has done is make the division worse. More people are hating blacks than ever before and the rioting is only making their own race look bad!.
    The good people of this country hold boycott any store, restaurant, etc that supports BLM.

            Let’s start where your idiocy is. First, I haven’t watched any tv since right around the last election. I used to watch a little CNN,MSNBC, TNT, TBS, etc., and 1 one hour show a week on FOX.

            The FAKE news titling comes from reporters that can’t keep their personal political bias out of their so called “reporting”. Most of the channels that you think so highly of are nothing more than OPINION spewing networks that all run in lock step. I get my news on line, from around about 20 sources,most outside of our country. Amazing how honest the news gets, and how different it is from the Democrat Cheer Leading Squad (Mainstream media). The bad part is most of those stations USED to be reputable, now I would trust the National Inquirer more than CNN.

            My black relatives happen to think the same as I do, BLM/ANTIFA are domestic terrorists. Most of the people the they hold up and claim blacks are hunted, are truly worthless criminals. Did Floyd have to die, no, that was because of poor training. Watch the whole video, where they worked with him. Watch the WHOLE video of Blake, didn’t even faze him when he was tazed, twice. Go back, look at the COMPLETE videos, not the 3 second blurb that mainstream media shows. Then, if that doesn’t open your eyes, you are sucking DEM carrots hard.
            I know this won’t change your mind, I know that you have been brain washed with,” Orange man bad!! Your TV told you so.” You will still vote for Pedo Joe, but here is hope that you at least start thinking for yourself.

            Let’s start with you being a poor sap, and thinking you have to give me your life story. One hour of FAKE fox news is enough for me to call it how I see it FAKE. I never said which stations/networks I watch by the way if you must know some of them are from around the world. I don’t take any of them with a grain of salt. I take and give from them all, so you are pretty much a hypocrite.

            You trust the National Inquirer. How funny the one that killed the story about Trump’s affairs with those two woman and paying them off. You poor pathetic loser, but I certainly don’t feel sorry for you.

            The FAKE titles doesn’t come from the reporters or media it comes from your dearly beloved Trump god (he thinks, but he’s actually a doofus) himself with his own words you dip.

            I don’t believe you about your black relatives. I’m pretty sure they are not that stupid to think like a dork.

            I am not going to just watch one video, and come to a conclusion. I want/need to see them all. One video just doesn’t cut it for me and making my decisions, but apparently it does for you. Why don’t you try watch them all? I know it will be hard for you because it sound like you can’t sit still for long because you fidget to much. Try taking some deep breaths.

Just because someone tells you they have a knife doesn’t make it so. Why not wait to see if he does have a knife, request he drop it, and then, if he doesn’t AND advances on you, shoot him in the leg or arm. Don’t shoot him 7 times in the back and then try to determine if he had a knife.

            Watch the video, when he was “getting in the vehicle”, he was grabbing something low, like on the floor by the seat. That is when the officer said “knife”, more than once. This is after Blake had an officer in a headlock, been tazed twice to no affect, officers tried to stop him opening the vehicles door, This is when Blake got shot.

    It is astonishing that an educated man who worked for two Presidents in the White House, and who then was employed by the FBI, is actually advocating what he terms as the “eradication” of people he labels as bigoted, lawless Marxists.

    Whenever I see a Blodgett column in The Des Moines Register, or in NorthIowaToday, or in the Globe-Gazette, or other publications, I have to ask myself what is wrong with people.

    This man, an admitted drug addict who has been locked up, glorifies violence. He, himself, carries a gun and is known to use it. Anyone who agrees with Mr. Blodgett is, clearly, insane.

            Gaslighting has become one of the most pervasive and destructive tactics in American politics. It is the exact opposite of what our political system was meant to be. It deals in lies and psychological coercion, and not the truth and intellectual discourse. If you ever ask yourself if you’re crazy, you are not. Crazy people aren’t sane enough to ask themselves if they’re crazy. So, trust yourself, believe what’s in your heart. Trust your eyes over what you are told. Never listen to the people who tell you that you are crazy, because you are not, you’re being gaslighted..
