• A “top-gun” leader has satisfactorily completed, at a minimum, the IfAR Analytical Leadership Program. This program enhances independent thinking and strengthens your ability to visualize and measure the balance of political forces, as they really are, not as the all-too, inaccurate conventional wisdom would have you believe they are. Moreover, it casts light on the whole vast realm of public policy. It helps you see the actual order among policies. Some policies drive other policies. (Often, activists and even leaders feel overwhelmed by all the policies and dont know how to apply themselves efficiently and most effectively.) Last but not least, this program sets down the range of realistic solutions to major problems. Some of these solutions are typically and tragically not shared with the public. It is quite conceivable that many top leaders and think-tank analystis are not aware of all of these solutions, either. 
  • The IfAR Analytical Leadership Program is not a course on the US Constitution, although aspects of the Constitution are addressed here and there in the course.  
  • Yes; the Program does teach the rudiments of persuasive communication, including deliberative (political) speeches. Such rudiments are imparted in part because they aid independent thinking and the handling of secondary and primary sources.
  • The cost of the course covers all necessary items, namely, access to written material, ZOOM sessions and processing fee.

“Top-Gun,” Analytical Leadership Program: Private Coaching

Short Description
This course goes down two tracks. One track reviews what the general public have been taught to think about the economy, power, politics and policy. The other track examines how things really are in government, politics and the economy. Those who truly understand both tracks make formidable leaders. They can identify the weaknesses in the conservative movement and around the country that the globalists have been exploiting. They have the knowledge to turn things around. For good measure, this course teaches you where to find and how to manage relevant primary sources. Also it teaches the basics of public speaking and argumentation. Once you have completed this course, you should be able to see far ahead and have an important impact on the conservative movement and the country.
Guidance from a World-Class Coach
Draw upon Dr Arminio’s 40 plus years of public-policy experience. Better still, he learnt how to get past the fog, generated by our  “conservative” leaders and thinkers, that most of us probably find themselves in. (Most of our leaders themselves are likely unaware of being in this fog. Why? Because the broad inroads of the globalists go back more than a century and a quarter!)
How the Coaching Works
The course begins with an assessment, then the course is tailored to elevate you to the “top gun” level as efficiently as possible. Excerpts from five ebooks are central to the course. American Government e3, Outline of US History, Primed For Resurgence, How The Climate-Change Agenda Is Destroying America: A Case Study and Big Impact School Board Activism, are drawn from. Two more IfAR ebooks–Killing America and A Plan For America’s Resurgence–receive mention. Several short videos and articles are drawn from, too. You take notes on the excerpts and submit the notes to the instructor, in advance of classes. The instructor interacts with you both live and via email. ZOOM facilitates live interaction. 

Class Duration and Schedule
Ideally, the course can be completed in 3 weeks. Courses will close in 5 weeks, whether completed or not.
How Much Work Is Involved
Believing that the typical adult reads about 250 words a minute, the instructor will assign about 6 hours of reading. Expect to spend another two hours  drafting questions and observations, for the instructor’s perusal. Live classes total about 2 or 3 hours. Recorded classes total about 1 hour. Students are encouraged, but not required, to draft a 500-word (5-minute) speech.
Episodic, Live Seminars Open to All Who Have Registered
Be sure to participate in the live (group) seminars that take place from time to time, as well. See the News page of the website for the schedule of these seminars.

  • You will be able to direct your political involvement effectively and efficiently.
  • You will be able to distinguish or be far more able to distinguish friend from foe.
  • And you will know where to find detailed information about “what to do.”

America In Crisis

Sun Tzu’s Art of War, the most insightful manual of strategy ever written, stresses the following: know the enemy, know yourself; win every time! How well do most conservative activists really know the political battlefield? Just because a group or individual claims to be or is referred to as conservative, doesnt mean that they really are. Furthermore, to listen to “conservative” pundits and politicians, we are to believe that the country is divided into evil left and heroic right, except for some vague force–“globalists” or “rinos”–that have infiltrated and weakened the right. This course, relying upon the ebook by the same name, America In Crisis, presents the various contending factions, in concrete, specific terms, as they really are. It pinpoints the “globalists,” too. For good measure, it concretely and specifically follows America’s trajectory from colonial days down to today. It shows you who really has the power, how they accumulate it and what they are doing with it. It shines light upon important speeches, and the think tanks that shape so much of conservative thinking and action. Key funding trails of the Left and Right are followed. Those major institutions that have the greatest impact on public policy are examined. Along the way, learn about brilliant solutions that early-Americas promoted and that could yet be revived, to the immense benefit of us all.

Killing America

Is it any wonder why America is in such trouble? The conservative press, think tanks and leadership tend to address every issue under the sun but the most important issue of all–the destructiveness of the Federal Reserve (Banking) System (what some call ‘The Creature from Jekyll Island’ or ‘The Creature of 1913’) and the related peril of “stakeholder capitalism.” Moreover, the issue of the Federal Reserve (and stakeholder capitalism) is integral to every other issue in America. Yet, the tendency is to tackle issue X or Y or Z in isolation, as if the Federal Reserve doesn’t exist and stakeholder capitalism isn’t being rolled out. Building upon the three Ebooks, America In Crisis, Killing America: The Destructive Federal Reserve System And Evil Stakeholder Capitalism, And How To Turn Things Around, and A Plan To Bring About America’s Resurgence and Module 2 of A Plan To Bring About America’s Resurgence–this course–“What To Do About The Creature Of 1913?”–examines America’s supreme problem. Also, this course lays out a wide assortment of short-term fixes and long-term reforms of our deeply flawed banking system. These solutions are amazing, mostly drawn from early American, quintessentially conservative, thinking. Some of these solutions can be applied at the local level. Laymen and busy leaders are the intended audience of this course.

Big Impact School-Board Activism

ALSO compare CfAR’s school-board course to the competitors’ programs.

Critical race theory is but the latest outrage being inflicted on public education. Unfortunately, the tendency among school-board reformers is to confine reform to the easy-to-understand issue of the day and hour. (It usually is the issue most commonly cited in the conservative press, as well.) This course, drawing from the two ebooks, America In Crisis and Big Impact School Board Activism and Module 1 of A Plan To Bring About America’s Resurgence, will enable you to see the public-school crisis in unusually, broad terms. At the heart of this crisis is the seriously deficient education in civics. George Orwell warned us a long time ago, saying, that those who control the present, control the past (the teaching of the past) and ultimately, control the future. This course will help you see that the education in civics that you received and that our youth presently receive instills a dangerous illusion. There is the illusion of an adequate portrayal of political power; our textbooks go on and on about the vaunted, checks-and-balance within the government. But they fail to map and convey where the main locus of power lies. Furthermore, prior reform movements, even among the right, have overlooked subtle efforts in the textbooks to undermine Christianity. The course entitled How School Boards Can Have A Profound Effect On America may surprise you not only for what still needs to be taught our youth but also because of certain myths you yourself may have unwittingly picked up when you were in school or over the years. Another benefit of the course is the outlining of way to improve school-curriculum by a factor of 10, at less than 10% the cost of the typical public-school budget. Yes; you read that correctly! 10 times better; at one-tenth the cost. Above all, you will discover the incredible opportunity that school-board activism presents. If done right, a position on a school board is, in an important sense, not unlike holding a seat in Congress!

Courses in Public Speaking

“Public Speaking Basics”

In just a few hours, you will learn the basics of how top leaders throughout history constructed responsible, persuasive speeches. You will learn how to dissect, in basic fashion, someone else’s speech. You will learn how to craft (and if you wish deliver) your own brief speech. Critiques are provided throughout the course. The course is a distillation of classical rhetoric. As such, it is superior to the prevailing way of teaching public speaking, otherwise known as Communication Studies.

“Public Speaking Intermediate”

This course builds on CfAR’s Public Speaking Basics. Public Speaking Intermediate is more analytical and rigorous. Intermediate requires more upfront labor but the dividends are impressive. Basics introduces the major parts of a speech. Intermediate takes you into the subparts. These subparts are where the real action is! This is how powerful pro and con arguments are thoroughly harvested and how just the right subset of arguments are chosen to suit the occasion and audience of a speech. Like Basics, the Intermediate course is a distillation of classical rhetoric and typically not found elsewhere.

Competitors’ School Board Programs

PROs and CONs


Module One of PTBAAR.
This material provides the big picture of politics and economics. And it 
distills the entire universe of relevant information pertaining to public schools. 
Dr Arminio.
This world-class instructor helps you master the material and apply it to your exact, particular needs and goals.
Material that mostly describes the mechanics of running for school board and that informs you about the latest wokist initiative amied at the public schools, and about a quick fix or two.  
Instructors of limited expertise.
Such expertise suffices if the goal is to have you play a rudimentary role in the public-school fight.
Takes little time to learn and gets you into the fight fast. 
Seems to assume that school-board activism is like taking orders. “Conservative” press and national leaders tell you what the problem is and what to do; all you do is say “Aye, aye” and attack the foe they point at, in the way they tell you to attack.
Requires somewhat more study and thought, up front, but pays big dividends. The risk of haste making waste is minimized.
Assumes that something is amiss in national leadership circles, including “conservative”  circles. (How else could the country be in such a mess!). Best to be very broadly informed and equipped to think for yourself. Best to know all the options, ranging from quick fixes to  deep, lasting solutions.
