A UFO Over My House: The Secret Society Hung League and the ancient religion of astrology and intersteller time travel

Well, of course, I believe in UFOs. There are way too many of them that occur too often not to notice them and to take note of our government’s reaction to them or the response of other countries. I’ve seen them before; I can tell many stories, especially when my daughters were growing up when we experienced paranormal activity, largely because we went looking for things, and unexplained events occurred. I tend to think of “unexplained” as needing more science. When you don’t have science to explain something, we call it paranormal because it exists outside of “normal.” And the governments of the world rule from within the safe confines of what is “normal.” But these are also the same governments who have lied to us about the reasons for getting into the Gulf Wars, who made Covid and unleashed it from China, then tried to force all people to take medicine from their political donors and lied to us about how to treat the virus because they wanted people to get sick with it so that they could control us. These are also the same people who have been telling us that there wasn’t any election fraud, even though we know by now that there was lots of it. So if the government says there aren’t UFOs, or they attempt to say they aren’t in contact with an alien species trading technology for peace, or something else, I don’t believe them. I have seen enough to know that there is something to the whole UFO discussion and that there is far more of it going on than anyone wants to admit. Most people, if taken out of a social setting, will acknowledge that they have experienced paranormal activity of some kind, but because of the social ostracization that comes with admitting it in public, just another form of control that governments use against people, taught to us in those dirty, rotten public schools, that is how these mysterious things stay hidden from the public. Isolating people from talking about their experiences helps keep secrets, secrets. 

I have two daughters, and over the years, hanging around me, they have had their fair share of paranormal experiences. Often we check these out as a family to prove they aren’t real. But too often, there has been something to the reports, and we end up with more questions than answers. One of my daughters has developed a keen eye for UFOs over the years, and she sees them quite a lot. They are often hidden in plain sight because people don’t tend to look up; if they do, UFOs are hard to see. UFOs are hidden in the procedure for airline pilots and military members. They exist outside our process controls for maintaining a pilot’s license. So the reports are often ignored or not mentioned for fear of sounding like a lunatic. But if you look up, anything above 1000 feet, even the big airliners, it’s hard to see. With that said, I wasn’t surprised the other day when my daughter came over to my house with fresh video she had taken from her front porch of a UFO right over my home. The craft was moving too fast to be a small plane and too low to be a big airliner, even coming in for an approach into Dayton or Cincinnati, which we see all the time. This was different; it was fast, and in the 4-second video, it can be seen moving behind a cloud before blending into the sky to disappear. The video was short because it took a moment to see it, pull out her camera, then zoom in on it to get enough of an image. And that’s how these things usually go. The video ended up a little fuzzy because she had to zoom in on it to get it to appear on camera. This was a pretty good one, but she sees lots of UFOs in her life because she has learned to look at things in ways that maybe other people have trained themselves to expect as “normal.” She, nor I, expect normal. I would say that we expect unique things to be hidden behind the expectation of normal, which is why many people don’t see these things. 

As I looked at her video and went outside to look at the spot over my home where the UFO had been, I thought about the various secret societies and their initiation rituals, such as those passed down from the Knight’s Templars into the modern Masons, and in this case specifically the ultra-secret Hung League in China. Because China has been in the news a lot lately over Covid lockdown protests, I always attribute planned crises, such as political positions to these secret societies and consider how much they are behind it. And when it comes to UFOs, it’s the initiation rituals that many of these secret societies have that give away their great interest in the stars and the life forms that come from them. As I’ve said before, many Indians, especially in America, when you get into their belief systems, believe that the earth was populated by Star People from the binary star system Sirius who settled ten planets, earth being just one of them. Hey, if the Indians say to worship the earth, liberals are ready to shut down our society over climate change. But if they say there are Star People who have settled earth and come back often to maintain our life here, they call it “crazy.” Yet, that’s what is said about travel from Sirius and other star systems. When you see the various motives behind secret societies toward astrology and processional interest in the constellations over time, it’s clear that knowledge is power, and the point of the secret societies is to keep that knowledge a secret so they can have power over people in general—the oldest motive in the world. Below is part of an initiation ritual into the Hang League that is typical of these secret societies, and you’d be surprised who is in them and why. I would say that the efforts behind politics make these kinds of beliefs normal:

The Hung League, considered by many the oldest religion of the Chinese, well before Confucius ever came along; these are questions of an initiate. And, of course, in the answer are the coded messages that let the secret society know that the initiate can behold the concepts of astrology. 

Q.           What did you see on your walk?

A.           I saw two pots with red bamboo.

Q.           Do you know how many plants there were?

A.           In one pot were 36, and in the other 72 plants, together 108.

Q.           Did you take home some of them for your use?

A.           Yes, I took home 108 plants.

Q.           How can you prove that?

A.           I can prove it by a verse.

Q.           How does this verse run?

A.           The red bamboo from Canto is rare in the world. In the groves are 36 and 72.

               Who in the world knows the meaning of this?

               When we have set to work, we will know the secret. 

The number 12 is the number of constellations in the zodiac. 30 is the number of degrees allocated along the ecliptic to each zodiacal constellation. 72 is the number of years required for the equinoctial sun to complete a processional shift of one degree along the ecliptic. 360 is the total number of degrees in the ecliptic. 72 X 30 = 2160, the number of years required for the sun to complete a passage of 30 degrees along the ecliptic, to pass entirely through any one of the 12 zodiacal constellations. 2160 X 12 = 25,920, which is the number of years in one complete precessional cycle or Great Year and the total number of years required to bring about the great return. You can also get to the number 25,920, which is the number of the Great Year from a Zodilocal perspective with 360 X 72.

I tend to think of astrology as the science of mapping time as it occurs on earth so that interstellar travelers will always have a reference for where they are relative to where they came from. We think of astrology as the horoscope we read in the paper, online, or in the Farmer’s Almanac, where star power influences us based on when we were born and during whatever period of time during the Great Year, which followers of astrology known as 25,920 years of processional time that our sun moves through all the houses of the zodiac. For instance, during the time of Moses and the Biblical Exodus, we were in the time of Aries, and goats were the offerings to God that were part of the appeasement process. By the time Jesus came along, it was the age of Pisces, the fish that people identifying as Christians put on the back of their cars. It takes 2,160 years to get from one age to another; the next one on earth is the age of Aquarius, etc. But to what effect does all this math matter? Well, if you travel from star system to star system, you have to know what time it is. So each planet will have its unique position relative to other celestial bodies, and any computer calculating space and time will have to understand that relationship. It looks like over time, people living on earth and interacting with these characters from Sirius or wherever else have associated astrology not as a clock for telling time but with its own religion, and that religion is at the center of most of our secret societies. As I’ve said before, Washington D.C. is loaded with a deep commitment to star alignments and the zodiac because it was built by Mason’s deeply committed to this stuff. 

So part of keeping that power over people occurring is the maintenance of secret societies and their true motives. Whenever I see a UFO, like the one in the video over my house, or hear about them, I think of this religion of astrology and the secret of government interaction with interplanetary influences. I don’t think of such concealed truths as scary; it’s just science and the quest to get more science to understand what’s happening in the world. But when members of those secret societies tell you that there is nothing to see, that’s when I say to look harder. And when the things they tell you aren’t real are flying right over your house, and you can see it, well then you know they are lying for many reasons that are important to them. But the truth looks to be far beyond most of their understandings. For them, such knowledge is power over their human competitors for knowledge. But for society in general, the truth is far outside our accepted reality, and to understand it, you must first be willing to look up and say, “hey, it’s a UFO.” And I’ve seen enough over a long period of time to see the connections between government, power, lies, and mass manipulation to maintain that power.

Meanwhile, there are many visitors to earth, and most are just doing their thing. And astrology looks to be their means of programming whatever travel computers they use to figure out where they are and what time it is at home because time moves at different rates depending on where you are in space and how that space is bent by gravity and other quantum forces. And much to the detriment of the secret societies, their secrets aren’t such secrets anymore.

The Public Toilet that Lakota Schools Is: We tried a conservative board, but they are just as bad, except for Darbi Boddy

Recently someone from Lakota schools attempting to defend the horrible behavior of the adult staff and administrators there sent me a list of Republicans and conservatives who have been caught in sex trafficking and the widespread abuse of children as if to justify the massive failures going on in the public school system. My thoughts on it are that it’s much easier to make a list of conservatives who commit such terrible acts against children because if liberals were included, we wouldn’t have enough time in the history of the world to complete such a list because there are so many. But regarding Republicans, I had just been thinking about how disappointed I have been in trying to play things right and what we ended up with on the Lakota school board. But there were good stories, too; one thing you can count on in life is that Darbi Boddy will never be accused of accepting evil and contributing to young people’s delinquency. But for all the work that was put into getting a new conservative school board in the Lakota school system, the board is just as bad as when the liberals ran it with the majority, back when Brad Lovell and Joan Powell were the ring leaders. Suppose a political body, such as the prosecutor’s office, the sheriff’s department, and all the other characters involved, cannot protect children as the most serious element needed in a public school. In that case, there is absolutely no hope for them. At least I can say that I tried to work it out with a social solution working within the rules, even if I doubted from the beginning that a conservative school board at Lakota schools would work at all. I wouldn’t say I will stop trying, but the results have been garbage. It didn’t matter if we had a conservative majority on the school board or a bunch of sex-crazed liberals; the results were the same. The system itself is broken and is left resolute to allow progressive politics to seep into all communities and work at destroying conservative values wherever they reside. There is no hope for public education to work. 

As that same person pointed out, the recent student teacher at Lakota who has found a lot of trouble for trying to have a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old kid in one of the junior schools had attended Liberty University, a traditionally Christian school. My reply was that she was picked as a target of investigation, likely because she attended that school, so the corrupt administrators could point to someone and say, “see, they want to have sex with kids too.” I’m against anybody who wants to do such a thing, and if conservatives turn their backs on children and fail to do the right thing for their well-being, then I hate them just as much as liberals who do it. It doesn’t change my anger toward them because they call themselves conservatives. What do I say all the time, “I love Republicans until they show me that they aren’t.” And it might be recalled that I recently pointed out that the Republican Party leadership of Butler County needs an oil change so that newcomers who want to do good can. Instead of letting some Boss Hogg characters run things with the level of corruption that was typical on the television show, The Dukes of Hazzard. If I don’t get invited to the Christmas Party this year because of it, I think I’ll live. It will just be one less thing for me to worry about. If people don’t have the guts to do the right, basic things in their life, I’m not impressed with them, and I generally won’t waste my time with them. If people turn bad, no matter what political party they are in, I scrap them, move on, and never look back. So with that said, Darbi Boddy and others who have risen to support her in the face of terrible radical teacher union protests and out-of-control superintendents who pick fights and then cry when people accept those challenges like a little baby have been worth knowing and supporting. But the efforts at the Lakota school board have been horrible; I’d say it’s much worse than when the liberals ran things in the past.

.So when I say that public education is no better than using a public toilet, there is some context to go by. I tried to be part of a solution to bring proper management to the Lakota school system. I prefer not to think about public education; I have a long history of showing all the problems with it. They are institutions of liberalism that seek to embed themselves into a community and to sell destructive progressive ideas to the residents who are forced to pay for the product with the value of their properties. It’s a horrible deal; I’d prefer not to deal with them at all. I only do because they are in my community and do not represent the conservative values of my community. Another person wrote me recently and stated they were considering moving because they only moved to Lakota because of the schools. I say to those people, leave. Move away and take all your stupid liberal ideas with you. If you want to live in a great community, then do so. But don’t move to a liberal school and bring a bunch of liberal east coast ideas with you and expect everything to work out well. I lived in the area when most of the neighborhoods that are built today contained cows and vast open fields. And the cows were much better neighbors. The pigs you could smell when you drove down the road smelled far better than the smell of today and what comes out of Lakota schools. If those losers who moved here to leech off the Lakota public school system for the free babysitting service want to move to a more liberal area, then I would be fine with that. It would not hurt my feelings at all to bulldoze all those homes back into dust and to put the cows back. They were much higher quality lifeforms than the supporters of Superintendent Matt Miller and his administrators of doom. The kids of the community would be a lot better off.

But it’s not just Lakota; it’s all public schools, government in all its various manifestations. The bigger government is, the more corrupt it presents itself. And if conservatives are fighting to preserve a big government approach, then they cease to be conservatives in my way of looking at things and are just as worthless. I remind people also, all the time, that we are not a democracy. We have a democratic way of establishing who manages our government, but we are not a flee bitten democracy where popular sentiment rules the day. As is the case in Lakota, if most people think that child abuse is OK or open sexual lifestyles are permissible because the sheriff, the prosecutors, the media, and a bunch of crybaby residents believe it’s OK, that doesn’t make it OK. Leadership is where one person stands up against a tide of bad decisions alone and under great ridicule and does the right thing anyway. That is what we expect in our republic form of government. That’s what Darbi Boddy has been doing. But as to the rest of the characters have been typical, and what is typical leads to the conclusion that all government schools are no better than public toilets and the content that gets flushed down them. I wouldn’t send a kid to a public school if the school paid me to do it instead of the other way around. It’s a worthless product run by terrible, horrible people who are dumb as rocks. And it’s irresponsible to consider them teaching anybody, anything. Ever.

Another Example of How Government is More Dangerous Than Mass Shooters: Without guns, the American government would have already used the “China Model” to rule over all of society

We’ve been through this before with all these mass shootings. This Walmart shooting in Virginia recently, where an overnight lead person named Andre Bling opened fire on the same workers that worked for him, killing six and injuring several others, isn’t unusual these days. But it’s not a question of gun control, as the Biden administration would like, nor the elements of our intelligence community who work for the Liberal World Order would want you to believe. There is far too much evidence that through various means, certain types of people can be pushed psychologically into committing violent acts by third parties, and we have seen that this Biden administration and its structural support of globalism will do anything to gain power and to hold it, including election fraud. Or manufacturing deadly viruses and exploiting their release to control mass populations. It’s not even worth a debate at this point because they have been caught in the act too many times over the last five years to deny it. I would always point to the Las Vegas shooter, one of the biggest mass shootings on record that killed many people in one of America’s most reckless and visited tourist spots. Notice how there are no documentaries on the shooter; his memory just went away along with the Jeffery Epstein jail cell cameras during his “suicide.” The government talks about disinformation and their obsession with the “China Model” are not going to work in the United States, and that panic is starting to set in with some of these big government globalist groups. Therefore it’s not unusual that people like this shooter, Andre Bling, at the ripe age of 31, we’re talking about government dishonesty. More and more people are because the government has proven itself to be far more dangerous than some of these young people who crack under the pressure of modern expectations and commit mass shootings, whether they were pushed into it by some clandestine government agency hungry for news stories in their favor, or whether or not people can manage their personal concerns. Once the smoke clears on the subject, every mass shooting is sad. But a society without guns is even worse because what we know now, which we didn’t admit to ourselves prior to President Trump becoming president, is that the government is far more dangerous than the potential for mass shooters.

The solution I always say to mass shootings is for more people to carry. There should have been armed people in the breakroom to shoot Andre Bling when he opened fire. Nobody should be a sitting duck anywhere, at any time. In a free society, gun ownership and Constitutional carry are critical to its maintenance. This notion that there is a government control solution to any episodes of violence is ridiculous. There are no law enforcement officials in existence that can take away the intent of a criminal to do harm. And the government simply cannot be trusted with the safety of its citizens. The best way to deal with the corruption of government, which this shooter was concerned with, which contributed to his desperate state, is to keep it small and decentralized. To take away their monopoly power over social maintenance. We need government for critical things, but it should not be so big that it can control our very lives. Finding that balance has been an interesting bit of social history, and without question, the modern ratio is way too high. Government to be less corrupt, must be dramatically scaled back, and that doesn’t mean adding more government workers to the payroll to prevent mass shootings. Too often, we find that those police officers and armed security do not engage a threat in the way we expect, and people still end up getting killed when a shooter decides to snap and open fire on mass society who are innocently minding their own business. I carry a gun every day, everywhere I go, and I participate with a lot of people who are gun owners. In my community, there are over 400,000 people, most of whom own and carry many guns. And nobody shoots each other.

Guns themselves are not dangerous; people are dangerous, especially when they have bad ideas. It used to be that we recruited police and security from the military, where our government would train people to be reliable killers under pressure to prepare for wartime engagement perpetually. But this new military is more interested in transvestite rights, gays showering together, and how many women they can train alongside the men than in actually preparing people to deal with pressure under difficulty and put their own lives on the line when threats matter most. So naturally, we are seeing significant failures in our nation’s security and defense both with foreign threats and domestically. We are not making tough people anymore due to government policy. In the process, we are creating millions of potential young people who can snap at any moment and become tomorrow’s mass killers. The best solution to that is less government and more personal responsibility to diffuse mass shootings wherever they occur. Whether it’s in the classroom, or as a person sitting in a Walmart breakroom, wherever lots of people gather, there is always the potential that one or two of them will be prone to psychological distress and find themselves the next mass shooter. The liberal approach is to eliminate the guns themselves and to have gun control which the crooked Biden administration immediately tried to implement. But that is giving the government power it doesn’t deserve and obviously can’t handle, and it is not a solution worth consideration in any way.

If not for private gun ownership, the government, which is far more dangerous than any mass shooter, would have already made its move toward the China Model of complete control over society. We see in Brazil mass protests of millions of people because of the recent election where their presidential pick was stolen from them. In China, we see the same mass protests in the big cities, like Shanghai, where the government is trying to impose phony Covid lockdowns to get political control of their mass population. In hindsight, they tried the same thing here, and people obeyed for the first few months. But because of gun ownership, the government knew it could not go door to door for enforcement, which forced the courts and legislators to rely on the Constitution for an answer to the problem, for which there wasn’t a big government solution to be found, nor should there have been. The Covid push was an attempt by the world’s governments and their financiers in the World Economic Forum to commit a Great Reset behind the chaos, which is the real threat to society. Not some young person who can’t handle the pressures of life and committed violence against his peers in a moment of crisis. The solution would have been for Walmart to have an open carry policy that would have stopped the kid from shooting as soon as he showed “intent.” Many fewer people would have been killed and injured. But even worse than that potential crisis is the goals of government that have demonstrated its intent, which is to remove guns from society so that they can get administrative control over it and take Americans to places they don’t want to go on the chessboard of globalism. Instead, I’d recommend, in reaction to that government intent, that you buy a new gun today and let them know you are buying it. Because that is a vote, they can’t steal from you, and it allows the real bad guys no that domination of America won’t be easy and done behind the desk of some pinhead. But people can defend themselves from the threats of violence resulting from government policy and are free to live their lives despite the failures of big government and its minions of ignorance, malice, and doom.

The Lakota 5-Year Forecast: What do I think of it?

Since the most recent five-year forecast by the Lakota school system just before Thanksgiving 2022, I have been asked hundreds of times what I thought about it. I’m happy that the government school doesn’t plan to ask for more money until 2025. There are elements of the radical teacher’s union background who think that we haven’t had a tax increase since 2013, and before that, there were a lot of fights on three previous attempts to stop the school from taking more money from the public, so the push has been that its time to extract more money from the community. Before we elected three board members that are supposed to be conservative to the board, the previous school board was very liberal and wanted to take the surpluses that we had and spend that money on new facilities projects. There is this belief that is built into the progressive mentality, which believes that Lakota is the largest employer in our region of Butler County and that they deserve to be treated with respect and always have new things, like state-of-the-art school buildings, and nice amenities for the staff to work in, because if we want to recruit the best teachers to the area, that we have to do those things in order to stay competitive. In reality, the unionized teachers go where it’s good for them financially, and as we have learned, there are quite a few of them who are swingers and alternative sexual lifestyles participants, so access to other such people is as big of a decision for them as anything else. Access to bars to pick up 22-year-old kids and younger is a significant benefit for them and part of their decision-making process. Communities with block parties happening often and providing plenty of socializing are very attractive to new Lakota staff recruits. They really don’t care about a nice new building; they care about access to other people who are just as deranged as they are. This is why there hasn’t been a mass exodus after all the drama about the current Lakota school board superintendent. Instead of being a detriment, it has been a recruiting tool because it advertised to the world what Lakota is really about, which has been far more enticing than anything taxpayers could spend money on.

Yet, the Lakota school system has a large tax base; if anything, Lakota should be looking to lower taxes. There are a lot of residents who support 17,000 students with valuable property that is much higher than other school districts. And that’s before all the commercial real estate is taxed. That revenue is only increasing, especially by the Liberty Center part of the community where a new Costco and many new wonderful developments are emerging, so with Lakota operating at a surplus for much of the last decade, that is because student enrollment really hasn’t increased, but property value and commercial opportunities have increased dramatically. So we are talking about millions of dollars that Lakota has benefited from and wasted on employee raises for essentially a terrible product, a free babysitting service to the community. But even with all those benefits, we had a previous school board that wanted to spend, spend, spend into oblivion so that they could ask for more money with a tax levy. And that was the talk from 2020 until 2022. That the Lakota school board felt they hadn’t asked for money for a long time, and it was time to do so, regardless of whether anybody really needed it. And that assumption comes from a unionized workforce that wants all the benefits of employment without any downside of management control. They want facilities; they want fewer students in the classroom. They want unionized bus drivers who call off work for every sniffle they have and blame it on Covid. Lakota has mismanaged itself into a complete disaster of an organization, with poor report card showings happening since Matt Miller took over as superintendent. So on the performance side, Lakota has been a disaster, and they don’t deserve a dime in addition to the many hundreds of millions that their budget currently is. They get enough and should be giving back a lot of that money by lowering their current costs. 

When I heard the 5-year forecast and saw the PowerPoint they presented, it made me sick because of a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff that few people know about. While I’m happy that Lakota announced that they had enough money to stay solvent until the year 2025 and had to gag at the school board praising the treasurer for a presentation that should be expected, not praised, I could see clearly that a lot of Lakota’s assumptions on money is built into their lack of preparation for a professional world. Like all progressive institutions, they have a presumption of entitlement and don’t expect to be judged by performance, and that is clear in their 5-year forecast. Contained within it are all the assurances I wanted that there wouldn’t be further pushing for a tax levy from Lakota as the radical liberal types had been wanting. I know that Lynda O’Conner didn’t want to deal with a tax increase, and only a few months ago, she and Issac Adi met with me in a super-secret location in someone’s basement to talk about the problems at Lakota. At that time, we were working out their problems with Darbi Boddy, who I continue to think is the best school board member I have seen in decades. I want four more of her over the next few years because if we do have more like her, Lakota will be forced to live within its very generous budget and not ask for more money. They wanted to talk me away from Darbi; I wanted to find out why they didn’t like her suddenly. But at that meeting, I told them, as I tell everyone who asks, I generally don’t care about Lakota until they ask for more money. I think the product is garbage, too expensive, and that they teach radical leftist concepts to the next generation in my community is reprehensible. And in that 5-year forecast, they addressed all my concerns that we talked about in that private meeting. 

But why? What had changed over these last few months when it looked like a tax increase was the only thing the school board wanted to discuss? Well, they chained themselves to a sinking ship in their superintendent, who had gotten himself into a lot of trouble, and once he brought all that brand damage to Lakota, he threatened the public like some entitled, spoiled brat, all to hide his terrible performance since he was hired in 2017, and obviously the school system itself needs time to recover. Their former treasurer Jenni Logan, Matt Miller’s partner for a long time, suddenly left in August to become one of the seven indictments against Roger Reynolds in an upcoming trial. And that same month, all the crap literally hit the fan regarding the superintendent’s bizarre sexual lifestyle, which was revealed because he decided to pick a fight with school board member Darbi Boddy and her supporters. So there has been a bloody battle, and Lakota has brand damage because of it. If Lakota tried for a levy now, it would take more than three attempts to get it passed, and they know it. So they have to wait for a while for things to cool off and for the politics to change in a more favorable direction for them. They hope that if the people of Lakota just go back to sleep, they will be able to return to the good old days when nobody wanted to come to school board meetings, and they could have fantasies about tax increases for their progressive lifestyles. Jenni Logan didn’t leave a good job for a couple of bad ones at the commissioner’s office and at Ross schools for her health. There is a lot of bad behind the scenes, so when I see a report like this, it says Lakota needs time to recalibrate and repair its public perception. But it doesn’t change a thing about their internal management; they are a disaster with out-of-control employees who are too expensive and, most of the time, should not be around children. And no public relations firm in the world will be able to hide that pile of garbage by 2025. That’s what I think of the new 5-year forecast.

The Smokescreen of Ana D’Ettorre: Ombudsman exposing reckless lives and moral inadequacies within the Lakota employee population

I tend to feel sorry for Ana Leigh D’Ettorre, who was a student teacher at Lakota schools and looks to have started a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old boy while at Liberty Junior School. I have seen some of her work; clearly, the 24-year-old was a nice fresh-out-of-college progressive who was just doing what she had been taught. And in the hallways of Liberty Junior and in the teacher’s lounge, based on the behavior of the other administrators and teachers, the young girl likely thought it was normal to seduce one of her students, which led to the Butler County prosecutor’s office indicting her with one felony charge for unlawful sexual conduct along with 11 counts of disseminating material harmful to juveniles. As soon as this story broke, and there is, of course, a lot more to it, the mother of the boy discussed the details with my good friend, Vanessa Wells; people were wondering why these same harsh standards weren’t applied to Lakota’s superintendent. Naturally, when the school board and the leadership of the school show that they have such permissive attitudes about sexual lifestyles, then what kind of example in the culture were they sending to Lakota employees like Ana D’Ettorre? Suppose you are a new teacher, even if it is just a student teacher and not a long-time member of the teacher’s union with several decades of work behind them when you know what leadership at Lakota is projecting as lifestyle choices. What other conclusion would you make about the permissibility of having sex with children? I mean, D’Ettorre herself is just a kid, as far as I’m concerned, and in this no-judgment world that progressives who run these schools expect to live by, why would the young teacher not think it was appropriate to engage in sexual pursuits with a 14-year-old boy? 

Based on my history with Lakota and public schools in general, I think there is a lot of sexual misconduct going on in all government schools. I can think of a case right off the top of my head where a teacher in a power position over a concerned mother seduced her into an affair. The mom wanted what was best for her child and found herself on the bad side of a power relationship that certainly benefited the teacher. And of course the teacher’s talk. There is a lot of dating that goes on between them, and as we learned about Lakota’s superintendent, there are a lot of swinging lifestyles occurring that they think are perfectly normal. Out of a large employee body in a public school system, the number of destructive sexual lifestyles among adults I think are as high as 10%. And we would define destructive by alternative sex that does not result in pursuing a spouse for marriage and raising children. Sex is purely a recreational pursuit for its own sake and with whoever might happen along. Sex, after all, is the ultimate form of collectivism, which progressives love, but conservatives hate. So the community sentiment toward these things is far different from the employees drawn to the teaching occupation. We haven’t just seen it a few times where teachers fall in love with their students, both males and females; we see it a lot. And the schools themselves have a general policy of squashing the stories before they ever make it to the school board. And suppose they do make it to the school board. In that case, public relations firms and lawyers control the narrative so the public doesn’t get suspicious and start to believe that the schools aren’t safe for the free babysitting service that the public schools genuinely are. 

In the case of the 24-year-old girl, it sounds almost like a normal relationship; a young girl finds herself attracted to a young boy. I mean, at least we aren’t talking about some creepy transvestite who wants to shake their fake boobs to their shop class here. It’s at least a biological girl and a biological boy. They are all young people. These days a 10-year age difference hardly seems strange, by ridiculous public-school standards where talk about molesting children is considered “pillow talk.” Yet we saw the police and the school system attempt to look like they were throwing the book at the kid. For essentially doing all the things, and less, that the school superintendent and the school board had just covered up with great public spectacle. If that is the standard for sexual conduct between students and teachers in Lakota, then there should be a lot more prosecutions going on. Instead, what it looks like to me is that Lakota and the public unions, in general, were looking for a fall guy in the education process to throw under the bus. Ana D’Ettorre made a convenient target, not a long-time employee, so the unions were fine to sacrifice one of their own. And in these media-reported stories, it’s always a “student teacher,” never a fully staffed long-term employee. And usually, the employees are never working at the school when a prosecutor puts forth indictments. There have been a few cases where the media have reported sexually bad behavior in public schools during 2022, and they are largely like this case with Ana D’Ettorre, who is not currently working in the district and is a student teacher instead of part of a full-time staff. 

So yes, I feel sorry for everyone involved, the mom of the son, the kid who thought he met an older woman, and a young girl who, by the way, she expresses herself, had traded away her own youth for the progressive journey of the Brave New World that public education is. And when Lakota needed to show the public that they took sexual matters seriously, they threw a bone like Ana out there for the public to consume. At the same time, the much worse sexual behavior continued without a media spectacle. Because if people knew what was happening in these government schools among the employees, they would not think of this prosecutor’s case with a grand jury indictment as much of anything but a smoke screen. It’s a long-known scam that many parents are just learning about. But don’t worry, if the media and their public relations people think they are going to manipulate the public all in the scheme to encourage the tax-paying public to stay asleep and continue funding these liberal disasters, we have developed a nice little network at Lakota where ombudsman abound with great passion. And if you find yourself in such a mess, we will help you with it. While we can’t make people who insist on doing bad things and hiding them do good things, we can expose them so that the public can know what their money pays for. Much of the disappointment over the school superintendent case at Lakota was the trust people put into the systems of control that clearly let them down, particularly the media. People expect a certain amount of corruption in school boards and the police. The media traditionally keeps corruption as honest as possible with free speech coverage. But as we saw, the media can be bought by the kind of public relations mechanics Lakota utilizes to protect its workforce from outside judgment. And when they need to throw the public a bone, they pick a nice, easy target, like Ana D’Ettorre, and throw her to the wolves hoping to protect the rest of the flock from proper social judgment for their reckless lives and moral inadequacies.

The War on the Mexican Border: Ukraine is a fake diversion to bring America down from within with 5 million invaders

Another scam we have been dealing with in the United States is the war with Ukraine. Thanks to the Trump Administration, it is now fair game to look back on all these foreign wars, the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, Korea, Vietnam, and many others, and understand that America has become the police force for the Desecrators of Davos ideas for collapsing borders and giving the United Nations world domination from the perspective of a centralized, administrative state. If you understand history and politics, it’s as obvious as a blue sky on a sunny, cloudless day. China was propped up and built by these same forces, and it is that model that the World Economic Forum proposes to utilize to gain control of every person on planet earth. The tools have been put in place, and they are making their move. And as they always have, a diversion is created while the real effort goes on somewhere else. This is clearly the case with the fake war in Ukraine, where globalist forces provoked Vladimir Putin’s sense of nationalism with threats of NATO membership with Ukraine to attack and defend his perception of border security.   And the United States suddenly is sending over 54 billion dollars to Ukraine to protect its border, while in the United States, the border to the south is wide open, and an open war is occurring as we speak. It’s a bloody and terrible war meant to topple America from within. The assumption is that defending that border is racist while defending the Ukraine border with infinite amounts of money is morally justified. Yet it’s all the same characters provoking both circumstances. 

Margorie Taylor Green was correct when she brought up this discrepancy in the middle of November 2022. I’ve been covering events on the American border with Mexico for many years, and I remember seeing lots of bloody pictures of severed heads that often happen in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas from drug cartels sending messages to homeowners there to keep their mouths shut otherwise the same will happen to them. The violence on the border between America and Mexico is a tragedy of violence, rape, and murder, which is going largely unreported. It’s a purposeful attack on America by hostile forces, and the Biden administration knows full well what they are doing there. Since Biden took office, over 5 million illegal aliens have crossed over into America. That’s a lot of people. For perspective, there have only been 82,000 people from Russia who have attacked Ukraine. Yet we are sending billions of dollars to Ukraine to defend their border, but the Biden administration is operating with an open border policy with Mexico. Can you smell what’s cooking? We are being lied to and purposely invaded for our own destruction. 

And if we point it out, the political left will call us names like “racist.” Hey, I was at Costco the other day looking at books. It was a busy day, and I was at their book display with about 30 other people. My wife and I were the only “white” people at that table. There were lots of people from India, China, and of course, Mexico there bargain hunting. But there were no other white people. Now in my life, I am far from a racist; few people deal with people from all over the world more than I do. I greatly respect the work people from other countries do because they often outwork traditional Americans.   I find that their countries of origin still have a good work ethic.

In contrast, in the United States, through labor unions and other liberal activities, Americans expect too much money for doing too little work. I greatly admire the work ethic of people from other countries and have a long history of supporting them. So for me to say that I was the only white guy at the Costco book table isn’t racist. It’s a statement of fact. The Americans were probably too lazy to read a book, which would explain why they weren’t there as much as anything. But that so many people of different backgrounds could assimilate into the United States under a common flag is nothing short of a miracle. From the way I see things, the invasion wasn’t working because many of the people were fleeing other countries to come to the United States to get away from the kind of garbage that the Biden administration and his partners at the World Economic Forum wanted to bring to America. So when it came to voting, they were more likely to vote for Trump than any Democrat, which wasn’t the plan. The belief in the attack was that all the illegal immigrants would vote for Democrats and that the nation would be changed into some third-world country through the Cloward-Piven collapses of our population and financial system. 

The media was apocalyptic when Margorie Taylor Green even questioned Ukraine instead of the Mexican border. The television pundits on MSNBC were appalled that anybody who had seen the dead bodies in the streets in Ukraine could not be moved to send endless amounts of money to the corrupt country run by a comedian who was best known for playing a piano with his penis before becoming president of the United Nation’s next conquest. And yes, the pictures are terrible of the dead bodies in the city streets of Kyiv and other places. But they are mainly staged; what about a society that purposely kills people so that they can send the media in to take pictures and exploit those pictures so that billions of dollars of foreign aid would be sent to Ukraine? The intentional murder of people is even worse. It’s not like Putin has been acting alone; the war between Russia and Ukraine is more about destroying Russian sovereignty and questions of nationalism than it is about sentiments of post-Cold War strategy. If the media showed the violence on the American border with Mexico, the violence would be far worse; it’s even worse than in the days of ISIS cutting off people’s heads on television. The drug cartels run Mexico and are a military threat to the people of America who live along the border. And the Biden administration knowingly allows violence to advance a globalist political agenda, and many innocent people are being harmed along the way. Yet nobody is talking about spending money on the American border to defend it from an obvious foreign invasion. The situation is so bad that the Biden administration will be viewed as an impeachable offense. That is another reason that Democrats are so prone to cheating in elections to hold senate seats because they must maintain the votes to prevent the Republican-controlled house from impeaching Biden over his handling of the border war that is far more dangerous than anything happening in Ukraine. There are far more examples of violence, beheadings, rapes, and terror along the Mexican border than anything the media could show us from Ukraine. But they won’t show that violence in the media which tells you who is advocating for that American invasion and who is against it. That is the real fight, and the guilty parties are the ones who don’t want to look at it but instead want us to look to Ukraine. The war isn’t there, it’s here, in America, and the intent is our complete destruction and nothing less.

The FTX Scam Shows Just How Fake Democrat Influence Really Is: We aren’t talking about financial investments but an invasion of our country

You have to understand that the purposeful mismanagement of something is part of the enemy’s strategy advocating for the collapse of America. I mean, Jerome Powell and Janet Yellon running the Federal Reserve, the denials that we were in a recession just to hope that politically Democrats might lose fewer seats in the Midterms. Just like the southern border in America, what we have seen with the Fed has been purposeful mismanagement of the money supply so that companies like BlackRock could purchase up a majority of company stock and convert their board of directors over to ESG standards and other woke policies set by the enemy of America, The Desecrators of Davos, led by Klaus Schwab and his gang of thieves at the World Economic Forum, Bill Gates and George Soros included. That is why I have told people who have asked me about cryptocurrency to stay away from it. The rebellion to move money from stable investments over into crypto has been part of the scheme. Of course, the rebellion is part of the desecration strategy to convince people that their government’s management of their money supply is corrupt so that they would then invest in losers like this Sam Bankman-Fried kid. The media sold him as the next Mark Zuckerberg, only not in data collection but in crypto investments through FTX. Now, just after the elections of 2022, FTX has filed bankruptcy, and the kid is hiding in the Bahamas, hoping that everything will cool down in a few years because he has done his job, which is to trick people into giving him real money in exchange for cryptocurrency, and then the real money that was given to him was then spent on Democrat political candidates, to either keep them in power or expand their influence so that a Liberal World Order could then be implemented in the vacuums of power. Its almost the same trick that Larry Fink has used with Jerome Powell at the Federal Reserve, government-sponsored quantitative easing to prop up fake value allowing BlackRock, StateStreet, and Vanguard to buy up the boards of many companies to turn them into chessboard assets for the Desecrators of Davos. 

I’ve never been a cryptocurrency fan because it is a rebellion vote for a stabilized currency. People who want to prepare for the eventual collapse of a government want to have some stable hedge against the complete collapse of our economy in America. And my advice is to fight it out with your government and force them to have a stable government and manage it properly rather than waste your efforts on these loser kids like Sam Bankman-Fried. The media knowingly lied to investors to prop up these alternative currencies for just this purpose. And once the scam was understood, they played their part in covering up the story. Without a doubt, Sam Bankman-Fried and his partners knew what they were doing. Still, in this obviously purposeful destruction of our world, his advisors undoubtedly explained that all the courts would soon be destroyed in America. There wouldn’t be anybody to prosecute him, just as we see in most industries in the United States through rules and regulations that are meant to cripple companies with the cost of compliance. FTX gave $37 million to Democrats during the last election cycle and has pledged to provide as much as a billion dollars to Democrats if President Trump returns to the scene, which of course, he is. They have been the second largest donors to Democrats, just behind George Soros. We know what his intentions have been, the complete Cloward-Piven collapse of the American economy with open borders and the liberalization of our laws to our own demise. These are military strategies, not investments. And what ends up happening with cryptocurrency is just another big money laundering operation working beyond the reach of the government to convert good money into weapons of war, leaving no value behind to the investor by fake numbers on a balance sheet.

However, it’s not all gloom and doom. And this is what I tell everyone when they look at these things and wonder how we will survive everything. I tell them, look at Democrats and their friends in the World Economic Forum, with all their election fraud tricks and their obvious money laundering operations in cryptocurrency and Ukraine; they know they don’t have real power, so they have to cheat and make things up to look like they are relevant to the powers of the world. And the way to beat them is to enforce value upon their lives which they obviously won’t be able to live up to. It’s not that they have any real power, all they have are tricks, and once people realize what those tricks are, they are no longer considered legitimate. Even if they wanted to throw a billion dollars at President Trump, like everyone will attempt to do, it assumes that money can actually buy elections, and they can’t. While we have been looking at that rabbit coming out of the hat, Democrats have gained power through election fraud and the various digital machines they have used to rig elections. And when those were watched too closely, they did what they got caught in Arizona doing this last time, slow walking performance to wear down the people watching so they could give fake votes over to their pick for whatever political position was being contested. But it’s all about scams for Democrats. They can’t win a straight fight; they have to cheat, just as was the obvious strategy of FTX.

Of course, the world is reeling from this FTX news, especially in Dubai, where cryptocurrency has been a growing trend. People who don’t want to invest their money backed by a government have been running to crypto. But really, the purpose of a country is to have a stable currency; why else would there be a need for a country? So it should not be a shock that organizations behind the open border movement are the same ones pushing cryptocurrency. Once people stop looking to a government for a controlled standard and accept crypto as an alternative, then all the plans that the World Economic Forum has for a one-world currency, a one-world order, and a takeover of all forms of government will then run with the Chinese model of a centralized bank complete with social credit scores will then be possible. But none of this is natural; it has all been an attack all along from international bandits who have been looking to loot our country from under us, buy up our politicians like Mitch McConnell and Joe Biden with fake money created in the process and own them at the policy level to launder value toward their globalist goals. Without their tricks and their acts of malice, Democrats would be nothing and would have no power. Like cryptocurrency, their entire value is in the perception of reality. Not in reality itself. Their existence in the political and financial worlds is a trick, a ruse. Without mass manipulation of people’s goodwill, Democrats would have nothing. And because people have not been looking at the war against the American monetary policies in the aggressive ways they should have, it has been working for Democrats. But when companies like FTX fall apart, then and only then do people see the house of cards that their mechanisms of power always were.

Like Spoiled Brat Children, Yes Lakota’s School Board is Laughing at us: You have to work really hard to move the needle just a little bit

I know, it feels like the Lakota school board was laughing at us and sticking their tongue out at us like a bunch of spoiled brat kids in the back seat of a car after their Monday meeting, where they essentially declared their superintendent guilt-free despite the protests from the community. I read the situation differently, but I understand how it feels. I’ve been doing this kind of stuff for a long time, and I think I’ve seen every ugly thing humans can do to each other many times. But I remember how I felt when I was just getting into some of this stuff in my 20s and 30s. I was so upset about it that it essentially started my writing career. I wrote my first book, The Symposium of Justice, as my contemplations after some very nasty business in the city of Mason, where my wife and I had been raising our children. It is painful to realize that the systems we thought were put in place to serve the public and make a better society are just organizations of malice meant to give adults all their fantasies of power and manipulation to satisfy the worst in human nature. It is extremely deflating to learn that most of our institutions have been built to serve sheer evil and that none of them work the way we thought they did or how they were portrayed on television. I’ve dealt with crooked cops all my life, and I wrote about those experiences in my book. Not all cops are bad; I think many get into the business for the right reasons. But I am not surprised by how things occurred in Lakota, where many thought there should be criminal prosecution of the Lakota superintendent, and all that ended up happening, in the end, was that the school board, the public employees, the police, and the media seemed to laugh and mock our efforts at justice. 

I’ve told the story years ago about some of my early years, and when I uncovered a drug distribution network in one of my old neighborhoods, I thought the police would be happy to hear it. I took the case to the mayor of Mason himself, and before it was all said and done, it involved even public officials in the city of Cincinnati mayor’s office at the time. It involved the FBI too and the media. For a while, it was a full-on war that eventually, the police came to my home to talk sense to us, and they said to my wife and me in our living room, “if you want to live in a nice neighborhood, why don’t you move to one.” Which, at the time, we thought was a pretty good neighborhood. It was a starter neighborhood in Mason; we liked the school. My wife was a volunteer there. And we wanted to help keep our community nice. But a percentage of the police force found easy money in selling drugs or allowing teenagers to sell drugs, and they facilitated it. And some good cops wanted to do a good job, and they would tell me that their hands were tied. When the city’s mayor wouldn’t prosecute hours and hours and hours of drug deals I had on tape filmed from the living room window of my house across the street where they were selling, I knew I was in trouble. I remember how it felt, and I see those same feelings coming out in young people in their 30s and 40s who don’t understand why the Lakota schools would take the position they have on the bad conduct of their superintendent. And why would the police and prosecutor not take the situation seriously? 

I’ve asked those same questions, and I wrote a book to propose what could be done about it. I have learned that many of our society’s institutions are contaminated with diabolical evil, and they want to keep it that way. They try to convince us that it’s not so. But we see it playing out everywhere, whether it’s our national policies, global problems, or local school system. Evil grows in institutions where good people are told to put on the blinders and trust the authorities. And the truth is, you can never trust them. It’s not that people start out in life as evil, but with each new bad decision they make, they become more so with each one. They seek refuge in the teacher’s union or government institution. Bad things turn into everyday things, and the basic collectivism of an administrative state defines itself as the facilitator of what is bad in the world by its very nature. And evil protects itself from the judgment of people who haven’t become that way yet. And even worse, people who are in those systems don’t see themselves as evil; they think any attack on the system they serve as evil, so it’s not hard for them to have a good laugh when they have pushed back against our judgment for thinking what they were are doing is wrong. I didn’t listen to those Mason cops for about two years. We stayed in that little house longer than we needed to, but we eventually moved. It was the right thing for us, but I hated giving the impression to them that we were giving them what they wanted. But my family was miserable with all the constant fighting.   Every time we left our home to go someplace, it was like there was a party where the entire street would celebrate our departure. It was a horrible thing to go through, and when we did move to a home where we had a lot more space and could control our neighborhood much better, we were much better off.

But should it be that way? Of course not. And I took what I learned from those experiences and have committed myself to a continuation that fights on the ground that I control, and that’s how it will always be for me. I would say that if you want good in the world, you have to work 1000X harder than evil to have just a little bit of good. And that it’s worth all the work. And when evil mocks you, as they clearly are in Lakota schools over their display of a rigged system against the taxpayers, a system that they control, and are supported by other institutions committed to the same Liberal World Order, understand what you are looking at. If they hate you, you are serving the side of good. You are showing kids that there are options in the world and that there isn’t only one decision, to be pushed through the meat grinder of liberalism and to have their intellects destroyed before they even have a chance at a good life. The system may be rigged for the efforts of evil, but that doesn’t mean we are helpless. It just means that fighting for what’s right is much harder than they told us growing up. They don’t tell stories about how it is on television or in movies. They don’t write songs about how evil works in the world. So many people are broad-sided when they have to confront it. Only the church deals with this issue; many people don’t have a relationship with the church these days, and when they do, they can’t see how to apply it to their daily lives. But remember, when you see them mocking you, remember that the information you learn from them is far better than the results you hope for. And buckle down for the fight and know that you will have to work much harder than them for positive results. Then knowing that you will be much more prepared to do what’s right for the world.   It’s worth the fight, even though it doesn’t feel that way most of the time. But it’s a lot of work. Many people don’t want to work hard to do what’s right. It’s much easier to cave to the pressure of evil, which is how it spreads.

The New Costco in Liberty Township, Ohio: Small government and guns make communities great

For around two years, I had been looking for a PlayStation 5. Unfortunately for PlayStation, the company released its newest video game console during Covid. Who would have ever thought that the economy of the world would shut down entirely when planning for such a new release? In many places in the world, supply chains have not returned to normal due to massive government interference and their stupid support of Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset. That has been particularly true of computer chips, which make the new PlayStation 5 so powerful. So it’s been very difficult to get a new PlayStation 5. Our family has continued playing our old PlayStation 4 over that duration like many people have had to. But I’ve been on the lookout for one for several years and have not been able to find one. There are usually long waiting lists you have to get on to have a chance to buy one. Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and all the usual places have been unable to keep them when they do come in, and what they get has usually been a very limited supply. So I was quite shocked when I went to the new Costco in Liberty Township to meet my family on the opening day of November 2022 and saw at the entrance a pallet of PlayStation 5s stacked high for people to grab as they came into the new and wonderful store. I arrived before my family did, and it took me less than a fraction of a second to see the obvious. I grabbed one as people were plucking them from the stack as quickly as they came in, and we bought it that day and have enjoyed it profusely. 

Yes, I’m a fan of Costco, even though they are not exactly conservatives. They are known Obama supporters, but they provide excellent service, so I haven’t held that against them. Costco does a lot of great things, and I have been a frequent visitor to the one in Tri-County, Ohio, for many years. When I found out that they were going to build a new Costco in Liberty Township, Ohio, I was very happy because I feel like a lot of people do about Tri-County, Ohio, located between the cities of Sharonville and Springdale, that big government has destroyed the former economic boom town and left it a husk of desperate value. I used to think of Tri-County as one of the greatest economic centers in the United States. I worked there several times in my life, so I know the area’s character well; it’s been a part of my life most of my life. So I’ve seen it in better days. But over the last 10 to 20 years, the progressive policies that came from big government woke policies have left the reputation to be one of crime. To describe it simply in one word, when I think of Tri-County, I think of MTV. The youth have been allowed to run wild and take over the character of the area, and wherever youth go, like mindless locusts, they destroy everything in their path. Older people don’t want to deal with a bunch of slack-jawed kids dressed inappropriately and constantly catcalling women while trying to shop and spend time with their families. But kids don’t have money, but moms who run families do, and those types of moms made Tri-County great. 

That is why Costco built a store in Liberty Township, which is everything that Tri-County isn’t, very conservative and safe, and people who live there have money and care about things. It’s not to say that Liberty Township couldn’t become like Tri-County at some point, but the differences couldn’t be more obvious. In Butler County, Ohio, where Liberty Township is, there are over 400,000 residents, most of whom have guns. They either have guns in the home or carry them, and crime is not tolerated the way it has been 6 miles to the south in Tri-County and Sharonville. So it shouldn’t be a surprise to see Costco realizing that their Tri-County store was being held back because people just didn’t want to be in an area known for crime to shop at their store. So they built a new one, and people were hungry for it. For the first few weeks, there has been a line to get into the store, and people have been flocking to it just to buy goods and services and enjoy the Costco experience. And this new Costco has had everything, a lot more than the Tri-County store had, like PlayStation 5s. As I bought our new PlayStation in the long lines that went to the back of the store, I realized that if the Tri-County store did try to carry the type of items that the new Liberty Township store did, that theft would be the likely result. In Tri-County, with their progressive governments and their big-city attitudes, crime is much more permitted. In Liberty Township, crime isn’t permitted at all. And there are a lot of guns carried by good people who won’t hesitate to use those guns to defend property and persons, which was always the point of the 2nd Amendment. 

This is precisely why many of us in the Butler County area have fought the temptation to allow West Chester and Liberty Township to become a city like their neighbors in Sharonville, Springdale, and Forest Park. Bad government happens when it gets too big, and once there are city councils and mayors involved, woke politics starts to attach itself to the decision-making process, and things get out of control. So we have fought for small government in Butler County, and the results are obvious. Butler County communities run much better than communities within the I-275 loop that have fallen for the big government temptation. I could tell stories about my experiences in Mason, where they have a city too, but over time they have had to become much more nibble on their feet to adapt to the pressure exerted by Sycamore Township to their south and Liberty Township to their west. The struggle to keep the government small is hard, but it’s obvious where they manage because when the government is small, there is less bureaucratic nonsense, allowing companies to invest without all the additional trouble. And when you go to the new Costco in LIbety Township and see the lines from people hungry to get in, you can see the obvious quickly. I happened to listen to a few older men standing outside the new Costco, bewildered as to why people were going so crazy over this new store, even days later after it initially opened. And the answer was that a lot of these shoppers were simply sitting at home waiting for something to open near them because they didn’t want to go into Tri-County to deal with the mess there, all the kids with their pants walking around half down, the nasty language, the cars with rap music pouring through closed windows but being so loud that it vibrates the fillings out of people’s teeth. When there is too much government and too much progressive policy, it ruins communities. When there is less, it makes communities better because the kind of people who shop and start businesses can then have a relationship without the government messing it up. And guns help a lot. Where there are lots of guns by private hands, there is much less crime. Where there are less guns, there is a lot more bad behavior.   And put simply, that is why the new Costco at Liberty Township is so much better and why communities like Tri-County, Ohio, are failing.

Graham Hancock’s ‘Ancient Apocalypse’ on Netflix: The most dangerous series on television and what it means to all civilization

I agree with what they are saying about Graham Hancock’s Ancient Apocalypse series on Netflix, that it is their most dangerous show. And I think it’s magnificent. Even though the eight-part series just scratches the surface of how much work has gone into understanding that all evidence points to an advanced human civilization that existed before and during the last ice age and that previous assumptions about tribal diffusion from Russia down into Alaska are wrong, the work that Graham Hancock is doing is essentially the kind that Robert Kennedy has been doing concerning Covid-19. The facts point to a massive government conspiracy to use Covid as a bioweapon and to unleash it upon society to control them from a newly empowered administrative state. What Graham Hancock has been doing in his many great books over the last 30 years has been shaking the foundations of archaeology and, thus, institutionalism under the umbrella of scholarship to its very core. The academic institutions have been lying to people about where mankind came from and, in that way, have been hoping to control where it’s going. And they have been caught; Graham, the investigative reporter from the BBC and The Economist, in a previous lifetime, caught them. And he has traveled all over the world uncovering that lie, which culminated in this Netflix show that I thought was wildly great. The show introduces viewers to some very abstract concepts that Graham Hancock’s books have revealed over many years. So over the holidays of 2022, if you are looking for something great to watch on Netflix, this series Ancient Apocalypse is currently trending number one, and based on the content, it will stay there for a while. 

Probably the most important aspect of Graham Hancock’s work is that he shows that there is a massive interest in the roots of populism, even in the field of archaeology. So it’s not just politics that mass populations push back against institutionalism. In the modern era, as they often do, single-point failure administrative states, whether they be monarchies run by aristocracies, theocracies run by the church, or even governments run by the ambitions of democracy, or even the street thugs who want to burn it all down who George Soros funds, such as Antifa, with thoughts of anarchy, all those organized approaches to gain control over mass populations have failed, and people are quite aware of it. And they are rebelling; whether it’s the Brexit movement in England, the MAGA movement in America, or the support of Balsonaro in Brazil, people are noticing that they don’t like or trust the institutions that have risen in the 20th century under the banners of progressivism and are rethinking just about everything in their lives. And to Graham Hancock’s point, the archaeological community who despises him as a journalist tells this story much clearer than just about any field on earth because what we are digging out of the ground and learning about people who came before us is pointing in one direction, toward a distant past, toward the Plato stories of Atlantis being true and that our society was quite advanced here on earth many tens of thousands of years ago, and that we today have a kind of collective amnesia about the origins of the human race. Instead, we are supposed to accept blindly what institutionalism has told us about history and be happy that they told us anything. It’s the same nonsense where doctors told us not to take Ivermectin to fight off Covid-19, even though by taking it, we could have significantly prevented the effects of the bioweapon created by world governments to gain control over mass populations. 

When I hear Graham Hancock talk about archaeologists, I cringe a bit because we wouldn’t know anything without all the hard work they do. Hancock is a journalist who happens to be interested in archaeological reporting. And as a reporter, he has been able to accumulate a tremendous amount of information and put it all together into a massive story that combines mythology with actual reported finds. And his work is simply amazing. That archaeologists would find Graham’s work disturbing isn’t surprising. They probably didn’t get into the business of digging in the ground for years on end just to find a few little bits of pottery, only to have Graham Hancock call them advocates of conspiracy. I talk to a few archaeologists who are doing good work in the world, and there are some, like Francis Pryor, who does great work for the Heritage group in England, whom I admire quite a lot. I think natural tension is good for science, so just because they don’t like Graham Hancock doesn’t mean that everything Hancock is doing is a massive conspiracy theory. I would call it the accumulation of information that has been gathered by hundreds of thousands of labor hours digging through the dirt and decentralizing the information away from institutional controls to be judged by free market value in the form of bookselling. And our culture is far better off because of it. And all those books sold have now made it possible for Graham Hancock to have the clout to be featured on a Netflix series, making his work much more acceptable to a general audience. It doesn’t hurt archaeology in the least; it probably helps it greatly. This kind of coverage is what gets projects funded, so the archaeology community would do well to get on the train and enjoy the ride. 

But the controversy points to a much more sinister problem, and that is one that I think Graham gets frustrated with too much because he assumes that there will be fair treatment to a superior intellectual debate. And ultimately, if Graham Hancock and I were to have a long chat, he and I would disagree on the value of indigenous people, the course trajectory of modern civilization, and any arrogance that might be holding us back from the knowledge of the past. I would argue that the best mechanism for understanding many of our modern problems is the Vico Cycle and that just because we know that ancient civilizations may have lived longer than we previously thought and that they may have had aspects to their culture that was far superior to what we have today, such as in the building techniques of massive megalithic rocks, we must also understand that those cultures lived and died long before we came along. And because they died away or were shoved into our subconscious only to be revealed in mythology shows how vulnerable cultures are to perpetually being erased away by institutional governments and their self-grabs for power. My position is that modern populism is divorcing this trend from the human race. The fact that we can have a Netflix series that we can watch over the Holidays with our families without getting permission from some ridiculous king shows an aspect to modern culture that is far superior to anything that ever happened in the past. We are headed in the right direction. We have a chance to be better as a human race than we ever were tens of thousands of years ago in the days of Atlantis, during the last Ice Age, or even millions of years ago as humanity tried and tried again to rise only to fall by the Vico Cycle over and over. I would say that because of people like Graham Hancock, who can take lots of tedious reporting from the various sciences, thousands of hours of study, and present it into a story people can understand is part of that miracle. And it’s wonderful to have that kind of information presented on Netflix into what I agree is the most dangerous series on television. That it is dangerous is what makes it so good!
