Trickle Down Economics is the Only Kind: Joe Biden’s ignorant speech to the Chicago Electrical Union

It’s not just embarrassing to hear Joe Biden ramble on as an illegitimately inserted president by forces outside of the United States who needed him to undo the American constitution for their desires of social erosion. Still, the speech he gave to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Chicago was a monstrosity of ignorance that would have been hilarious if he wasn’t so serious. Of course, the subject was an old one. The political left’s hatred of the concept of “trickle down economics” and their socialist view of a middle-class where all prosperity is created and distributed from the middle out was on full display. Biden will cite 50 ivy league economists, but they would all be wrong because they all studied the same stupid stuff. Every economist who studied Marxist concepts in college, which almost every college teaches, and the evolution of Keynesian economics, which is all the rage in London and Paris, all miss the mark. This is a concept that about everyone in the world so grossly misunderstands; it is the primary reason that I wrote my book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, to resolve the matter from the original mistake, Karl Marx. Everything economically based is created by risk and then distributed to those less prone to risk. Without a risk-taker to start the process of economic birth, there is nothing for anybody to do. Therefore, trickle-down economics is the only kind of economics. 

The most successful societies are those that create the opportunities for risk takers to take more risks. In a society that penalizes risk-taking, there will be more economic stagnation. Government, by its nature, is all about safety and collective sharing of responsibility. So government is the worst contributor to risk, and therefore any economic activity attempted by government is destined to fail. In the United States, government gives the illusion of success because it steals from the productive, the risk-takers. But without the risk-takers to conduct the original economic activity, there is nothing for government to steal. They quickly find themselves rotting away in the case of the labor unions that Joe Biden loves to pander to. Labor unions are all creations of Karl Marx. Looking back through history, the labor movement sold unions to the public as a patriotic endeavor which many people wanted to believe. But in the game of globalism, it was a way to slide socialism under the door of American industry to get a foothold for the fundamental aims of stealing capitalism’s creations and redistributing them around the world. Just visit any town in America, and you will see the effect that unions had on their industry. Union wages and inflexibility against management made it too difficult to operate those companies, so they moved overseas. Couple that with government regulations, and most of those companies found it much easier to move to Mexico or China to do business, and this was all by design, led by the members of Socialist International and the modern-day version of The World Economic Forum, the people I call the Desecrators of Davos. It was a con game from the start, going back to the late 1880s, and it has been bleeding America dry over the entire last century in every industry. It took 40 or 50 years to see the erosive effects in some cases. Still, it destroyed industrial productivity in all cases and forced them to take the path of least resistance to countries that did not have unionized workforces. 

Of course, the leftist lunatics like Joe Biden and his kind of people will call the companies selfish for leaving. Companies have been running from intrusive looting governments all their lives, including now. Only recently have they learned that there is no escape. Now it’s ESG scores behind financing that is sucking the life out of them, and no matter how much they play along, they can’t escape the robbery of the political left, even in China these days. This is why there are all indications of a global recession because all those Keynesian economists from the prestigious economic schools worldwide are all advising them to follow Karl Marx to the same dead ends. They have penalized risk-taking, and therefore, economic activity has been dramatically diminished. If the fun and profit are removed from risk-taking endeavors, economic activity will be greatly diminished, and it is this trend that the entire world has missed entirely.   Without risk-taking, economic activity of any kind is significantly reduced, if it’s even present at all, but for sheer necessity, fulfilling the basics of building, creating food, and fulfilling the basic necessities. But when there is wealth to be made, and profit is the measure, then all kinds of great things happen. We see improvements in art and entertainment, science, industry, and luxury items because behind it all is some risk-taker who wants to go for a big win and have a nice car or a nice spouse and live a good life of excess enjoyment. Marxists hate those excesses, but that is why their entire economic platform was flawed from the start, as was everyone who followed. 

America emerged as the powerhouse it became, and still is, even with the intrusive government that has evolved over time because it embraced risk-taking in economies which has endured the social looting by the Marxist minds. Even with the plan by the labor unions to redistribute the wealth created in America to other places around the world, risk-taking was still at the heart of all economic activity. Thus, the GDP still remained high despite the tight controls of modern politics. So long as Americans were willing to swing for the fences, the economy would continue to thrive. But it could be even better than that if more risk-takers were encouraged to enter the marketplace. Currently, our education system does not produce such people; they happen by cultural accident. We don’t consciously seek to remove barriers to risk-taking; we do the opposite. But as a formula, the ratio of risk-taking that is promoted in any culture, the more options for economic activity there will be for all to enjoy. That wealth creation will then trickle down to the kinds of people who just want a job without the risk of making one. Of course, in his speech to the union workers, Joe Biden was missing all those elements. He didn’t understand the basic foundations of economic thought, which most everyone else misses as well, that risk and rewards are the first priorities of monetary creation. And the more risk-takers there are, the more chances there are to win at life, and the trickle-down effect of those victories provides jobs to people. Governments work best when they create opportunities for risk-taking. They work worst when they set themselves up to loot off the efforts of the bold and the innovative, then try to disguise the theft as an altruistic sacrifice to a “greater good.” Karl Marx was a perpetually lazy man, as were his followers.   He worked really hard to justify his lazy nature, and his family suffered greatly because he wouldn’t work; and instead spent his time in the British Museum studying new economic theories to justify the existence of lazy people like him. And now, a few centuries later, dumb people who were taught all the wrong things, like Joe Biden is, are trying to disguise their nature by criticizing “trickle down economic theory.” Well, it’s not a theory, it’s the rules of the universe, and those who deny such things, are the perpetrators of great evil in the world and societies of misery that cascade off their stupidity in abundance and destroy everything they touch. This is why there are economic struggles under the Biden administration, to begin with. Too much government, too little encouragement of risk-takers, and too much looting of any wealth that is made from ambition and adventure.

Strive Asset Management: The woke pirates took over our finance industry, and now we’re taking it back

I consider it the most critical aspect of the strategy of modern politics, stopping the means of attack that progressive ideologies have inflicted on our nation through the back door of finance. We have seen nothing less than an attack from foreign investment into the critical infrastructure of America. The attack, in many ways, was much more insidious than when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. The attack against our country from the realm of finance has been much worse and was everything that President Jackson and President Jefferson were concerned about regarding centralized banking. When the Federal Reserve was eventually created, many were concerned that it would get out of control, which it has. The unholy alliance that emerged in the Federal Reserve in the wake of the 2008 housing bubble burst with Larry Fink of BlackRock has been absolutely detrimental and fulfilled the worst fears that anti-centralized bank critics could even imagine to utter. The situation is so bad that many people can’t comprehend the magnitude of the problem. We are seeing now, with Jerome Powell stating that the Fed would continue to raise interest rates until inflation was under control, how vast the problem really is. But what many don’t know is that Ben Bernanke moved to a plan to print endless amounts of money, which Larry Fink then used to drive BlackRock up to 10 trillion in asset control, which they then used to buy up most of the prominent corporations in America, so to leverage them to change the way they measure success, from profit-based companies to ESG score management, which has been insidious. 

Within a short time, really, over the last decade, the big three asset management companies in the world, BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard, have moved to convert every company they deal with into progressive political advocates, essentially using stock buys to control their board of directors. This is how woke politics have emerged into just about everything we interact with, from the products we buy to the companies we work in for our means of income. I often compare it to a group of pirates who pulled alongside a massive galleon full of people, treasure, and big guns with a little schooner flying a peace flag. Then, before it was too late, they ran up the Jolly Roger to show they were pirates, and before the big ship could react, the pirates climbed abord and took over the ship. No longer are the pirates harassing shipping lanes with a little schooner; they have their own galleons and are now a threat to the world’s navies. What Larry Fink did, as a vital member of the Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum, was to capture American industry and use it as a military acquisition to impose progressive politics on all Americans and destroy any concept of national sovereignty government by the American Constitution. That is why they and the Biden administration do not care about the Constitutional rules of our nation, because in their mind, they already control our economy, and there is nothing at this point that we can do about it. We can protest, but they’ll ignore us because they don’t believe we have any power to resist them.

That is until Vivek Ramaswamy, Peter Theil, and several others made the media rounds to discuss the leak from The Wall Street Journal about the money management option that is coming in the 3rd quarter of 2022, Strive Asset Management. I’ve known about this for a while now and was asked not to talk about it. I have some very dear friends who are working directly with Vivek to make this happen, and their goals are nothing less than to take on BlackRock and recapture all that looted market share. It is, in essence, the equivalent of tricking the pirates with a schooner of our own and getting close and taking back over that ship and running the pirates out of our sea lanes to secure commerce politically free once again. I would say that this is more important than the 2024 election, bigger than CRT in public schools, and far bigger than any considerations happening in Ukraine, China, or Russia. What Strive Asset Management is “striving” to restore capitalism to its value-based measurements and give people who do not like having their 401K plans sabotaged and used for progressive politics an off-ramp for their investments that they currently don’t have. Presently, the money managers are entirely controlled by woke progressive politics, which is why things have turned so chaotic recently. These policies have occurred beyond the political reach of any elected politicians, so the attack vector was one we weren’t prepared for as a nation. We can have a military to be ready for war. We can all own guns in our homes to prevent a domestic invasion. But this invasion came through finance, through our Federal Reserve, through Wall Street, and it came from foreign investment that controls over 20 trillion dollars, more than America’s entire GDP per year. Jackson fought the banks hard during his presidency to prevent this very kind of problem. We understand why because we see it in all its ugliness today.

This is why a few weeks ago, I took my copy of Vivek’s book Woke, Inc to him, where I was at an event he was at and had him sign it. I do not care about celebrity. I’ve met Vivek several times; I like him quite a lot. Just his autograph doesn’t do much for me, personally. But as the years pass and we look back on this time and want to remember it, I want the kids of my kids, kids to know when they see that book on my bookshelf just how important it was at this time and the lessons we all had to learn from it. Very few people saw how dangerous the progressive attack was on our corporate institutions, and Vivek was the first to see the Jolly Roger flag go up on the ship because he wasn’t looking at the flag mast; he was looking at the pirate standing in the ship which was preparing to run it up. And while the damage to our economy has been tremendous, I think we got the alarm out in time. Strive Asset Management is the first significant step into taking back our country. It takes people like Vivek, Peter, and many unnamed people working behind the scenes to make it happen, some of whom I know personally. These are the kind of people who can walk straight into Hell and freeze it over just with their presence. So Strive Asset Management is the place to go with your money. At the same time, the world will realign to the powers of capitalism, rejecting the insurgents who have hijacked all our lives, our governments, and our corporations through the most hostile takeover in world history. And they thought they were going to get away with it and that we’d have no other choice but to bend the knee to their stolen power. That is until Vivek came along and spotted the threat, and the rest is history. Its for that reason, I wanted his signature in my book. Its history now, and I never want people in the future to second guess the role finance plays in a good country the way many criticized President Jackson and his war with the banks without context. Now we know better, and we can never let it happen again.

Roe v. Wade is Not the Story: Its the cause of the leak to hide election fraud that really matters

Never listen to what people say; judge them based on what they do because people lie, even in the Supreme Court. To understand what is going on with the leak of the Roe v. Wade ruling by Justice Alito, you have to not look at the nonsense they provide by way of public opinion and memos; you have to judge them based on behavioral presentations that constitute their overall philosophy, and projected intentions. It was not an accident that during the same week that Dinesh D’Souza released his film, 2000 Mules, which presents election fraud evidence of the 2020 election, some unknown leaker put the Alito ruling out to the public. There is no way that it is unknown who leaked the ruling. They likely all know many of the members of the senate and house. The media certainly knows. It was a major crime to leak the ruling, a catastrophic, intentional act meant to bring harm to the Supreme Court, one of our three branches of government, and it’s no small matter. From the conservative viewpoint, everyone knows that Roe v. Wade will be overturned at some point because it was never constitutional. And the leak takes the edge off an eventual ruling and gets the crazies out to scream in the streets for the right to murder unborn babies. But for the liberals, it does a couple of things. First, it erodes away the validity of the Supreme Court, to hopefully cause a court-packing justification effort in the months to come. But more than that, it provides a much-needed distraction to give the public some red meat hoping they don’t get any funny ideas after seeing 2000 Mules. Because that film is the real smoking gun, suppose people don’t trust elections, which they have lots of reasons now not to. In that case, most of the Washington Beltway may not deserve to be in their positions, and all the bills they have signed over the years would be completely invalid, which is a much larger legal argument than Roe v. Wade would ever be. So the motive to leak this Justice’s opinion of Alito at this specific time is quite purposeful, and because the person who leaked it has not been punished tells you everything you need to know about the case.

It must be understood that liberals and other progressives are not just fighting for the right to murder babies. Their obsession with murder as a constitutionally protected right isn’t their real aim of strategy. Their primary concern was the erosion of our constitution. For them, Roe v. Wade was a win because it showed that sheer intimidation and force could push the Supreme Court into a ruling that eroded the constitution, which was always their real goal. Liberals do not want the constitution to be a fixed document but a living one that can be adapted as time moves on. Their professional administrative class can then adjust depending on their needs and desires. So Roe v. Wade is not about the “woman’s right to choose,” as much as it is about eroding away the effects of the American constitution. The crisis, therefore, for them is that a ruling that strikes down Roe v. Wade based on constitutional parameters strengthens the constitution. Even though abortion would not go away by striking down Roe v. Wade because the states would regulate it, the desire by liberals to have an all-powerful centralized government that can impose its will on people everywhere loses leverage. And that’s what really upsets them. Ironically, many minds have had plenty of time to think about this problem. I didn’t offer any immediate opinions about the matter because it seems like the most obvious thing in the world, but apparently not. 

Imagine being a leftist, crazy progressive right now. They have plotted the demise of American law for over a century, and Roe V. Wade showed them that it was possible to manipulate the judicial branch toward their aims. So it’s quite deflating to know that a Trump majority on the court was about to take that victory away from them and strengthen the constitution, not to erode it away further using an emotional degradation policy like abortion to drive their narrative. And they cheated in the 2020 election to get rid of Trump so that they could gain control over the constitution yet again, and erode away the effects of Trump’s four-year term, which showed that many of the crises that we see on the nightly news mainly was all nonsense, even the threat of North Korea, and that the enemies of the world were easy to defeat, that the economy could be massive and that most of what the Beltway culture did was present artificial constraints on everything so that the administrative class could rule the world and shove America into a United Nations controlled New World Order. And now that evidence of that theft was coming out. So hoping to sabotage everything ahead of a Supreme Court ruling in June of 2022, they leaked this Alito opinion to soak up the news cycle and hopefully keep this election fraud story out of the news. Roe v. Wade instead was a desperation attempt on their part to stay relevant. But in doing so, it took the edge off their mob mentality when the actual ruling hits, meaning the violence they can take to the streets will be much less impactful. People already know it’s going to happen, so the surprise element is now gone. 

Even though seeing how progressive acts can be scary, their desperation tells us a lot more about the honesty of the situation than in the violence of protesting in front of the Justices’ homes, trying to intimidate them into changing their minds regarding Roe v. Wade. Liberals participated in the election fraud of 2020. Many news outlets are the same ones trying to hide who the Supreme Court leaker is because they assumed that the constitution would be eliminated by now, especially under the controlled Biden administration. We already have seen the intentions of the Biden administration to give health authority over to the World Health Organization, so from the point of view of liberals, the sovereignty of America is already over and the constitution meaningless. But reality shows that people in America will not give up their constitution, and they aren’t falling for the old tricks. They still support Trump, and the President’s political endorsements are shaping up a much more conservative Republican Party than they are used to. There will be many more rulings like this one from Alito on Roe v. Wade in the future.   So even though the immediate effect is scary to look at, it’s important to understand the substance of it. Liberalism in the form of the administrative state is failing everywhere it’s being tried in the world. As a result of a century of radicalism, the left is about to lose its greatest victory, the right to impose federal rule over states’ rights. They could care less about the concept of abortion as its presented, whether it’s 12 weeks or full term. What matters to them is the ability to impose federal rights over states’ rights and to centralize government around their created administrative state. And to maintain that, they must have control of elections. People cannot be allowed to have free will. Yet, what the leak from the Supreme Court indicates, and the trend concludes, the free will promised by the American Constitution is alive and well and is, in fact, getting stronger, which for the crazy progressives who have wanted to undo America from the start, is a nightmare they never thought would happen.

My Review of ‘2000 Mules’: The proof of election fraud is abundant, nobody wants to be near Joe Biden

You might have noticed that Fox News is not allowing coverage of Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000 Mules on their network, even though compelling evidence was presented in the film that proves beyond reasonable doubt that the 2020 election was stolen. Everything Joe Biden has done and continues to do is illegal. All those who hoped that somehow Trump could be “processed out” of existence with a political stiff arm are learning the hard way. The Trump endorsements are reshaping the Republican Party, and all the insiders know it. They know Joe Biden and the Democrats cheated to gain their current power. After learning what we did in 2000 Mules, it’s evident that many close elections over the last decade or so were probably won in precisely the same way, by paying “mules” $10 per vote to stuff ballots created by nonprofits fed by Facebook money. By the time 2020 came around, the Democrats had their “steal the vote” campaign a well-oiled machine. The RINO Republican types played along because they kept the balance of power of politics within a realm they were comfortable with. If Democrats gained power, they were okay with that because it kept the swamp filled, so it was a concession they were willing to make. And in that last election, they wanted Trump gone as bad as the Democrats did, so they joined forces to hold their nose and allow for massive election fraud. Then in the aftermath, they took the position of denying it for all the legal reasons you’d expect and hope that the story would just disappear into history. But after watching the evidence of massive election fraud, with very conservative estimates taking the overvotes to well over 800,000, their hopes are vanishing. They are not going to get away with what happened in 2020. Many people in the media and in the political circles know that they have been caught in treasonous activity, and now that there is proof, concerns are brewing.

Where I filmed my video review shown above, it was less than a mile from where Joe Biden had just visited a metal plant specializing in 3D printing. I was right in the middle of that presidential visit that day, and it was the most boring that I have ever seen. And I don’t say that because I hate President Biden. I say it from experience setting up other presidential visits, such as Trump many times to Butler and Warren County. I know what they look like, I have seen the way politicians show up at the airport to greet the President, and this Biden visit had no gas in the tank. Nobody cared; drivers on the highways were barely an inconvenience. The motorcade brought Biden in, and they took him out, and hardly anybody knew he had ever been there. Really, we didn’t need the evidence of election fraud that was shown in 2000 Mules because the lack of excitement for Joe Biden says everything that anybody needs to know. Not even the liberal Andy Breshear came to see Biden in Northern Kentucky, where the President landed. They all know that Biden was manufactured; he was not picked by a Democratic means of actual vote counts. The only reason Joe Biden was President was that Facebook bought him along with other billionaires. And they also knew that the rule changes presented by Covid allowed for the theft to happen, and they really hoped that this story would die. But instead, it’s picking up steam as we learn more about what really happened. But regarding Joe Biden, there is no logical proof that he gained more votes in the history of any president because everywhere he goes, even in Philadelphia, nobody is excited to see him. 

The New York Times produced a documentary last year called A Day of Rage, which featured the same cell phone pings that Dinesh D’Souza used to show where people were and what they were doing, which was already accepted by the political left as viable evidence. In that documentary, the evidence was enough to apply guilt to the protestors indicating that they had planned what the establishment called an “insurrection.” Suddenly they don’t want to accept that kind of cell phone tracking evidence when it comes to the election fraud of 2020 because it is so apparent. My opinion on what happened on January 6th, 2021, was that I wanted more evidence and was willing to study it as it came in. Smart people knew something wasn’t right about the election, but at the time, we didn’t yet have the facts. Well, now, in 2022, we know the facts, and a group called True the Vote was featured in 2000 Mules to reveal just how the election fraud occurred, using the same methods The New York Times used in their Day of Rage. Rather than storm the capital like many did, I instead took my RV and my wife out into the desert of New Mexico and Utah and wrote a book.

I certainly understood why the people who stormed the capital were upset; we all were. They were angry that their vote had been stolen, and they didn’t want to wait for the proof. They had a gut instinct that the government was lying to them, and they wanted someone’s head on a plate. What happened on January 6th of that year is what happens when a government steals elections, and it is mild compared to what will happen in the future if it continues to occur.   The controls that the swamp thought they had over people were shattered that day, and it scared them, which it should. But back then, there was still a lot we didn’t know. But now we do. The election was stolen. The people who stormed the capitol on January 6th did so under constitutional parameters. Their prosecution has been against the law because the government breached the law with election fraud. It’s quite a mess, and now there is proof of it all which in many ways nobody wants to talk about, is earth-shattering.  

But the ultimate proof is in the lack of support for Joe Biden. When my wife and I went out west that year to get perspective out in the vast open spaces and away from politics for a few months, I was the first to see it. The election had just happened, and you could see that Trump had significant support. But there was nothing to suggest that Biden had any support, even while traveling through the blue state of Illinois. It was an odd thing to witness, supposedly the most popular President in history, yet nobody liked him and showed support for him publicly. Then there was that recent trip to Butler County, Ohio, to visit the 3D printing factory. Nobody, no politicians, and certainly no enthusiasm, not even from law enforcement who were responsible for safe passage along the route.   That is evidence that can’t be hidden or denied. People just don’t like Joe Biden, and they have an instinct that the government caused all this mess by taking away their actual vote. So even without the Dinesh D’Souza movie, people already get it. They just don’t know what to do about it. But now, there is more than an assumption. With the evidence presented by True the Vote and the great work done by Catherine Engelbrecht in putting it together, we have everything we need to begin congressional hearings on the matter, at the very least. We have whistleblowers, video, and cell phone data which are just as good as DNA evidence.   We have plenty to untangle the mess of election fraud in the 2020 election. But the most apparent evidence is how the political left has reacted to the presentation of that evidence, especially on Fox News. They don’t want to see it, they just want the story to die, and as a major news organization, that tells you all you need to know about their role in that election fraud, as most of the corporate media were from the beginning.

The Lakota School Board Created the National Circus: They want short meetings, and Darbi Boddy asks too many questions

There is a big difference between making mistakes and purposeful maliciousness. What Darbi Boddy did as a Lakota school board member was make a few mistakes. At the last meeting, I pointed this out to the board by giving a brief history of mistakes the Lakota school board had made, precisely one that resulted in an embarrassing lawsuit last year that cost many thousands of dollars. As a new board member, Darbi has been asking lots of questions. Still, the radical element has been aggressive toward her, primarily since she worked immediately to remove mask mandates at the school. Darbi Boddy was targeted right out of the gate, which wasn’t unexpected. But what was surprising was the level of activism that the school board would take to use whatever mistakes Darbi Boddy made as a new school board member to create a public circus just to get her to resign. Darbi, I think, has been a good school board member, and it was the job of the rest of the board members to reach out and to build a team with her instead of plotting behind the scenes to get rid of her because she didn’t fit a mold they saw as being on their school board membership. The voters picked the board, and the school board, along with Matt Miller, the superintendent, became activists to remove Darbi Boddy with a classic trick of social ostracization and peer pressure to force her to resign for a mistake only six months into the first term. The result was a national spectacle that was grossly unfair to Darbi. It was a level of activism that told many stories, but the worst of all was in its doing and the lack of responsibility that anybody utilized in the aftermath. The school board itself acted as if Darbi brought all this negative attention to Lakota when they tried to use the media and the radical element churned up for blood to destroy Darbi Boddy in every way they could. 

For me, what started years ago to simply fight school levies to keep the costs down of tax burdens in our school district, I have grown to hate Lakota schools over the years. I don’t think Lakota does anything well for the kids. I would argue that even the sports programs are unhealthy for the kids and their future culture once they’ve graduated. The more I have learned about public education, the more I hate it. So after the last election, I felt that Darbi Boddy and Issac Adi, the two newest board members, did care about public education. A lot more than I did, so they might be able to make Lakota the best it can be for the taxpayers who are forced to contribute small fortunes to essentially a progressive institution that works against them politically.   I heard at that last meeting Issac’s statements about not wanting to be on the news, and all his experience as a program manager with Master’s Degrees in college, because he was struggling to understand what a school board member at Lakota was all about. I felt sympathy for him, Issac is a very good person, and he means the best for all lives he touches. I think he and Darbi make the school board better, and maybe they’ll actually help some kids along the way. I was happy with their elections, so I stayed out of Lakota business because I personally find the whole thing sickening. Everything about public schools is political, and they aren’t my kind of politics. So I’m not eager to waste my time at their stupid meetings. All they have is a parade of complaints of below-the-line thinking from a unionized mindset that projects that more money is always needed to solve their problems. And to get that money, kids are always used as hostages to move public sentiment. So if I can put Lakota out of my mind and forget about it as much as possible, I’m a happy guy. If they drag me into their mess, well, then I’m not so happy. 

Politics is a blood sport, which I say all the time. Nobody really likes each other about much of anything. Politics, then, is a game where people use each other to achieve whatever objective they find bounces around in their minds. It is those skills specifically that I think Darbi Boddy has that make her better than most in school board business.   The greatest weakness in any school board culture is the Ohio School Board Association which turns the whole effort more into a country club mindset than anything practical for the business management of a district. What ends up happening is that the OSBA runs cover for the radical elements of progressive public schools, focusing on damage control of public image over the substance of actual management of resources united through political friendships and peer pressure. Darbi went into the school board without needing to have the illusions of friendships and being free of peer pressure. She has a nice family at home, a husband she enjoys, and is a dedicated mom, which is good enough for her. Going into the election, I thought that she had the potential to actually be helpful as a school board member at Lakota because of those traits. But she didn’t feel a need to maintain illusionary friendships aimed at group consensus, and this was a problem for the traditional way of running a school board, so things got off to a rough start from minute number one. Perhaps when Matt Miller gave Darbi and Issac their fruit baskets as a gift at the beginning of the year, they all would have gotten along better if they had given Darbi something she actually wanted. Whatever the case, the board would have done better to make political friends with Darbi than they did. Instead, they looked to destroy her because the value system was featured on cooperation and politics than on actually doing the job for the school.

The result of the school board approach with Matt Miller playing his role of passive-aggressive assassin was to use the media and the mob to push Darbi Boddy off the board with scandal, like a Shakespearean play. They could have used some of Darbi’s rookie mistakes to bond with her and do team building which is how such things are done in the professional world. Everyone would have understood, after all, the board as a body had made more than its fair share of serious mistakes over the years. Nothing that Darbi had done was malicious. There is a hostile political element in Lakota that the board should be fighting as members of management. Not yielding to. That radical element seeks to take away the management ability of the board at every juncture, and the net result of that is always more money.   At that last school board meeting, the seeds were certainly being planted for a future tax increase. The cost of diesel was going up, so busing was getting too expensive.

Teachers weren’t feeling safe in a post-Covid world; what would Lakota do to prevent teachers from leaving for other districts? The subtext of all the conversations was “more money.”  And what always costs more money is a lack of management which the political radicals at Lakota purposely interject always to keep the school board on its heels. And when they can get the board fighting each other, as they were baited into doing against Darbi Boddy, well then, of course, the result is continuously increased costs and unregulated monstrosities. The excuse that while the board was focused on shoving Darbi Boddy off the board, one of the schools needed an extended parking lot for increased busing, which would cost more money and create a need for another tax levy. All the while, to cover up the hard decisions with obvious indecision, Darbi Boddy made a convenient punching bag. The superintendent and other board members who aren’t getting paid want to go home. They don’t like long marathon meetings, and Darbi won’t shut up about her questions.   So they attacked her to push her off the board so that perhaps they could get back to 45-minute meetings again, or even 20 minutes. But from what I heard at that last meeting, the Lakota school board needs the questions that Darbi has been asking even more. When you are managing many millions of dollars, those meetings should be every bit of 4 to 5 hours. And if they take 12 to 15 hours, then that is what should be done if managing all those schools, all those progressive employees, and all the variables in between is required not to have to ask the public for more money. At that May 9th meeting, I heard that the superintendent and the board wanted to be lazy, and they wanted to get rid of the person who wanted to work the hardest so that they wouldn’t have to.   And they created the embarrassing national circus so they wouldn’t have to do the work that the taxpayers expected.

Rules and Regulations in Liberty Township Politics: Not the sexiest thing in the world, but certainly the most important

The word is out that the Biden administration is working with the World Health Organization to turn over American constitutional sovereignty to the Bill Gates-funded branch of the United Nations to give them control over health care decisions. Before anybody thinks of this as another conspiracy theory, I have said for many months now that the Biden administration does not plan to follow the constitution and that Democrats, in general, are hoping to erode away the founding concepts of America by the election of 2022, which is why they aren’t in a panic at the moment about the upcoming midterms. Polling shows that they will lose big in any honest election, but Democrats have not been participating in honest elections for decades. You can bet they have many tricks up their sleeve to hold on to power, and following the constitution won’t give them that power they are craving. Just watch 2000 Mules by Dinesh D’Souza, and the proof of how the 2020 election was stolen with Facebook money paying ballot stuffers to commit massive overvotes will become clear. So we are dealing with open violators of the law who want power at any cost; what they want to do with the WHO is just an extension of what they have done with Agenda 21, which I was reminded of while attending a trustee meeting in my home area of Liberty Township, Ohio. 

Because of Todd Minniear, the recently elected freedom-oriented trustee of Liberty Township, I have been more interested in the trustee meetings, so I went to a recent one to hear about a new concept that was being introduced, a “constitutional township.” A nice new government building recently opened where township business is conducted, which was weird for me. It’s always weird for me to go to these kinds of things and listen to people who think they are longtime residents who have built homes 30 years ago and think of themselves as veterans. I grew up less than a mile to the south of the new township building. I’ve been all over the world, I have lived in many places, but I live in Liberty Township because it literally is the best place to live in the world, in my opinion. And I remember when I had cows right next to the yard I played in. I still see the character of my home neighborhood even though almost every last bit of green space has a house on it now, which was the topic of the evening, the big Princeton Pike Church just to the north wanted to develop some of their large parcels of land, and neighboring residents who have been there for a while were worried about it. Several people were at the meeting to protest the development. They wanted the parcels of land to have their own road access so the new residents wouldn’t have to cut through their current neighborhood making traffic even heavier where kids often literally play in the streets. I’ve heard the arguments all my life, the debate between people who already live in Liberty Township and those who want to become part of it. Most of the time, nobody is ever completely happy.

This meeting was like the many I remember from the past. The trustees made it clear that all their power was to pass the zoning approval and kick the whole effort to a bureaucratic traffic study. The residents were in a bit of a panic because the government entities who do traffic studies are not accountable to anyone where the local trustees are, so it’s always disheartening for people to be told that their local government doesn’t have any real power. We have all surrendered our local government to the Agenda 21 types in faraway lands for many years. It is precisely that trend that makes members of the WHO think they can actually run all our lives across the world through health care, just as they had attempted to do with Covid, by superseding our American constitution with rules created by the United Nations. Many of the local zoning laws that the trustees were struggling with, including all the rules of procedural conduct, were written by members and fans of the United Nations global governance plan, so it’s certainly not a conspiracy theory. The election fraud of 2020 for those people was a small price to pay for their aims at global domination. The people at that Liberty Township Trustee meeting were just seeing the pass-down effects of laws written decades ago to set up this massive global power grab we were seeing now. The trustees were right; they didn’t have much power by the rules of trustee conduct. For the residents, after the meeting, they stood in the parking lot like lost children who had just found out that their parents had no authority to protect them from anything, and it was a scary concept to hear trustees say for the millionth time, “we have no power.”

In truth, trustees have a lot of power constitutionally, as do state and federal officials; if only they followed the founding documents and stopped allowing foreign entities to tamper with our governmental affairs through ridiculous rules and bureaucratic regulations.   That was precisely why Todd’s proposal for a constitutional township was so important. He was recently involved in a perfect utilization of its use by what he did with Liberty Center, the premier shopping area in the Cincinnati region. With this leadership from the local area idea in mind, the playground at the mall had been closed during the Covid outbreak, and the mall management wasn’t sure what the rules were to reopen it. Parents wanted to use the play area because it’s great for kids to get out of the house, and it brought life to the upstairs area by the food court. Without the playground, the lights were out, and it was a constant reminder of just how terrible the government had been over Covid restrictions. And since nobody in politics was sure what authority they had, nobody thought to tell Liberty Center that they could reopen the play area to help local businesses have life again. So the mall was waiting for someone to tell them they could reopen, which nobody did until Todd Menniear started asking questions. And within a few weeks of asking those questions, Liberty Center was able to reopen its playground area, which is wonderful for so many local residents. And just like that, we could see how a local trustee could bring leadership to the community and improve things dramatically.   Because if everyone were waiting for someone at the World Health Organization to tell them that the playground could reopen, it’s likely the playground never would. 

All local government has much more power than they believe they have. Many of the rules and regulations they are forced to follow are unconstitutional and would fall apart under any legal scrutiny. And when trustees like Todd Minniear start asking those obvious questions, well, then the ruse falls apart quickly, and we learn that many of the rules we have been following we never had to listen to in the first place. We should always ask from where the rules came from and who are the people who wrote them. It’s healthy to ask those questions, and we should because we have the same exact problem with school boards. They have all kinds of flow-down rules that come to them that constrain them in ways the community who elected them doesn’t want.   And some of them could and should be challenged with simple questions because upon asking; many will learn that the authority was never granted to the rule writers in the first place. They just did what they did because nobody questioned their authority. Listening to that meeting and the proposal Todd was introducing and thinking about the successful communication between government and private business at Liberty Center, a new trend in politics was quickly emerging for the better. And as I heard the news about the World Health Organization power grab, I worried about it a lot less because I know there are many like Todd Minniear emerging into local government who won’t just blindly accept unconstitutional mandates. And for the people of Liberty Township, that is some of the best news of the century.

We Still Love Sheriff Jones: Rachel Levin is a dude, not a woman

News flash, that creature Rachel Levine from the Biden administration, which is an illegal administration improperly given powers that it does not constitutionally have, is a man.   Not a woman. And even though I don’t agree with everything that Sheriff Jones does, sometimes we are on opposite sides of things, especially in the primary season. But at least the head of law and order in Butler County can tell the difference between a man and a woman and knows generally right from wrong. Those are reasonable first assumptions for any member of law enforcement. But don’t tell Channel 12, who did a story about Sheriff Jones making a comment on his Facebook page saying about the Biden transgender health official, “wow, what a guy.” For that, the news media thought it was time to pounce over woke politics that is being driven by an international progressive agenda. Joe Biden could have put anybody he wanted into that health role in the federal government, but he picked an elderly man who now wants to be called a woman and openly showed his intentions to desecrate American society right in front of our faces because he and the rest of them don’t think they’ll get any pushback from it. Well, in Butler County, Ohio, that transgender desecration of progressive politics is getting pushback, and for a good reason. 

It’s not an accident that Butler County is getting so much media attention, where public officials are being pressed to take a position on the transgender narrative. Traditionally, officials have run away from stories like this one, but Sheriff Jones simply crossed his arms to the reporter from Channel 12 and said, “well, that’s bullshit.” Obviously, at this stage of a progressive invasion into our society from every direction, we all know people who have been caught in the narrative. This attack was projected a long time ago with the movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which I think is one of the dumbest and most outrageous films ever shown in a theater. Nobody would have ever expected back then that drag queens would ever have a legitimate position in American society, and here we had an illegally inserted president who canceled all of President Trump’s pro-American ideas on his first day in office and quickly inserted Rachel Levine into the highest government office possible to rub our noses in it as if it was a foreign invader that planted the flag of the enemy right into our foreheads. Or a football player who just scored a touchdown spiking the football in front of our faces while giving us all the middle finger. These people on the left hate America and they hate us. And they are daring us to fight back because they think we won’t. 

The goal of the transgender movement from the left is to remove all absurdities from value judgment. Once people accept anything as possible, then the authority figures of government can then assign reality to whatever they want. Suppose people lose the ability to think critically. In that case, they will lose the ability to think for themselves and accept any reality the government gives them, run by the political left, of course. That was the apparent strategy when The Rocky Horror Picture Show came out long ago. That was why it played on college campuses at midnight on Saturdays, and that’s why people threw popcorn and other trash at each other during the movie. It was all about the desecration of America in every aspect. Even the young couple in the movie who are seduced by the transvestites lose their virginity to the desecrators at the end of the movie. Traditional America was to be destroyed, and the sexual perverts set loose upon us to ruin the world. And we’d like it or else. That is what Channel 12 intended in their interview, to shame the head of law enforcement into accepting an irrational thought or be ostracized by the public. 

Yet the way to beat them is not to care, as Sheriff Jones clearly displayed. It’s not that conservatives want to make people confused about their sexuality feel bad, but we certainly don’t want it shoved down our throats and that we are going to base our entire society on it. And with all that’s going on in the world, especially those who have not yet watched 2000 Mules which has the proof in it that Joe Biden did not win the presidency, this transsexual issue is just planned destruction. The Biden administration has been such a massive disaster; they are happy to have their media allies try to make the day’s story all about such a ridiculous topic. As to whether a man is a man or a woman, depending on what they feel like that day, is a premise meant to destroy American life. Because to accept such an absurdity, then people might just believe that the election of 2020 was correct, that Covid was an accident, and that the Fed and Wall Street hadn’t already sold America away financially to every foreign enemy in the world, just for the pure profit of it.

Yet it’s great that we still have public officials who will take a stand on these issues and declare that men are still men and women are still women. That law and order can determine right from wrong. Of course, a law-and-order society based on value judgments is a nightmare for the progressives. But that’s their problem. America has been a great place to live and raise a family. And that concept is under attack, and it’s on our watch to take a stand to defend it. Even with the kinds of differences that come up in primary elections, at least we can all agree that bending the knee to woke politics is a bad idea.

Progressives have come to expect it, especially from public officials. But in Butler County, Ohio, good people are fighting back. They should have never expected America to accept The Rocky Horror Picture Show as a reality, yet that is just what they did.   They thought we’d go along to get along and accept whatever virtue was given to us by the media. And when public officials like Sherrif Jones made value judgments based on tradition, we’d cast them from society. Instead, and this is something I’ve said for many decades now. If you take a stand against woke politics, voters will reward you because it’s what people really want. They like to see their representatives fighting back. And in Butler County, Ohio, we have an increasing number of officeholders who are fighting back and not kneeling to woke progressive rules advocated by the mainstream media. Sheriff Jones showed why we still love him because he represents people who don’t like seeing America torn apart by hostile agents of desecration and malice. When an illegal president put in charge of health from a high government office, the drag queen from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, they were challenging us to a fight. And if it’s a fight they want, that’s what they will get. Accepting a false reality is a dishonesty that no civilization can be built on. We know the intentions are bad, and it’s time to stand up to it, as Sheriff Jones of Butler County has.

Never Turn the Other Cheek to Evil: The sexual groomers and CRT teachers at Lakota don’t have the gas in the tank the media wants you to believe they have

There were a lot of important lessons that people should have learned from the Lakota school board meeting on May 9th, 2022, which I’ve talked about elsewhere. It was intended by the media, the radical progressives, and the institutionalized school board to be an assassination of Darbi Boddy for daring to come back to the meeting and not allowing herself to be forced to resign, which all those elements wanted more than life itself. The calls for her to be destroyed and publicly sacrificed were sickening. I’ve heard all the stories about her, that she doesn’t get along with the other members on the board, that she doesn’t follow the rules. That she doesn’t care about the image of Lakota. I will say that Darbi Boddy represents me best of all the school board members who have served at Lakota over the years. I may have liked some of the other board members, but they often don’t come close to representing my position. Yet Darbi does, and I think she has been as professional as she can be, considering that the foundation of all public schools is radical progressivism. School boards often get caught trying to mask the effects of progressivism in the schools, so the taxpayers don’t feel so bad about the many thousands of dollars each they are forced to contribute against their will only to churn out more kids with purple hair who live their lives like a perpetual Pride Parade participant. School boards spend too much of their time trying to make a bad system work instead of dealing with some of the vast evils that are being manufactured in these institutional corruptions proposed by John Dewey from the beginning. My position specifically about public education is that it has been a failure from the start. People would be better off without it. It does nothing to prepare kids for the workplace, which is evident in our post-Covid economy. And public schools have been committed to one primary objective over the decades: to prepare the child for a liberalized political outlook on life and remove the role of the parents in the child’s lives as much as possible. School boards and superintendents have learned to mask those effects to the public while hiding the fact that they played nice with the progressive teacher unions hoping to hold the whole thing together just long enough to pass the next levy to throw at the mob to keep them quiet and coming to work every day. 

Since the last election, I haven’t paid too much attention to Lakota schools. I liked that two Republican-endorsed candidates were elected. I like the current school board president, so I figured they’d go do the business of the school and leave us all alone for a while. I generally don’t like thinking about Lakota schools for all the reasons stated. I think it does nothing to help kids, so my hope with a school board is that a really good board might help mitigate the damage to children. But I am certainly not on board with institutionalized learning. The evidence of how bad it has been is all around us in the world. So I contain my rage about it most of the time until those public schools start asking for more money, or they pick on people I see wanting to do a good job the way a good job is defined, with lots of questions and a sincere dedication to solving problems, instead of trying to cover them up. And Darbi Boddy has been a school board member who has been doing an excellent job in my mind. I don’t want the school board to mask the progressive elements from the public so that the public doesn’t see how those losers waste our money, vast amounts, to be specific. And with so many bad people gunning for Darbi Boddy, I was determined to go to this particular school board meeting, even though I knew it would be a huge waste of time. She didn’t deserve all those extremist elements trying to destroy her, and her supporters needed to make their opinions known.

Leading up to the meeting, I received lots of antagonizing text messages, Tweets, and other forms of communication berating me for still supporting Darbi despite the “group consensus” displayed by the school to get rid of her. And with each one I received, I was more resolute to engage these attackers. I have been saying for many years to conservatives, do not run from these people. When they engage with you, stand and fight them. Punch them back into the holes they live in. Do not give them social validation by boosting their confidence by turning the other cheek. Most conservatives do turn the other cheek about most everything in their lives. That’s what God tells them to do in the Bible, so they do it. But they shouldn’t. When a purple-haired sexual groomer who wants to teach that America is bad through CRT and they want exclusivity to your children, you have to fight to protect your children from them.

Failure to do that is contributing to evil. So I wasn’t particularly happy about going to a Lakota school board meeting anyway, but I was expecting a fight. I wanted a fight as I pulled into the parking lot because I personally hate these people, the progressives who are employees and supporters of those employees at Lakota. However, I was surprised by what I found at the school when I arrived. For days ahead of time, I had screenshots of a Facebook page that the sexual groomers at Lakota were planning an anti-Darbi Boddy rally to demand her resignation. By the talk of the community and the hundreds and hundreds of comments that were left there, it looked like 1000 people might show up, so I was expecting a challenging evening. But you know what I saw? Two people standing out front. Now those two people looked like the typical Pride Parade types, the sexual groomers who want to introduce to children alternative sexual lifestyles when they should be learning math, science, and reading. But they had no support when the rubber hit the road, which is the lesson everyone should learn from this experience. 

Most of the people who packed that room at the meeting were anti-Darbi types. But if all the conservatives I know who were concerned about Darbi and this particular meeting specifically had shown up, they would have dwarfed the anti-Darbi people. I reminded people at that meeting during my speech that more than 8000 people had just voted for Darbi just six months ago, and nobody had a right to erase that vote away with these theatrics. But this is what progressives do; we see them doing it right now with the Supreme Court. Of course, the liberal media makes those crowds look big, so it scares away the conservatives from participating in these kinds of events because they don’t want to have to fight. They don’t want to deal with these evil elements of society, these sexual groomers, and anti-American radicals. They stay home. They do vote, but they are quiet about it. They don’t want to deal with the radicals, they don’t want the radicals coming to their house to harass them, and they fear it because the media has perpetuated that myth to feed that fear. But as was evident at that meeting, the progressives and radicals have no gas in the tank. If they could have had thousands of people outside the school board, they would have. Instead, they had just a couple of crazies demanding Darbi’s resignation. And they had a bunch of disrespectful malcontents in the board meeting being very disruptive, hoping to alter the course of the evening with discontent. But to no effect. All it did was prove a point I have been making to conservatives for three decades, stop pandering to these idiots. Throwing money at them to make them be quiet has not been a good strategy; it has only empowered them to believe that they have a majority they clearly don’t have. They are not as powerful as they pretend. And when they confront you, don’t turn the other cheek. When they attack your representatives, don’t abandon them to the mob. Don’t pick Barabbas. Stand up for what’s right and help them live another day. The real fight is how entrenched the public schools’ progressive elements really are; CRT is the most obvious problem. Nobody wants to see it, yet the evidence is clear to see, specifically in the participants of the campaign against Darbi Boddy for trying to expose it and how the institutional assassins lined up to destroy her. That is all the proof anybody needs. Yet, despite all their efforts, to stop them was pretty easy because they don’t have as much support in the world as the television cameras want you to believe they have.

Yes, There is Lots of CRT at Lakota: The evidence was at the school board meeting that occurred on 5.9.22

I say it all the time, don’t judge people based on what they say, but by what they do. And over the question of CRT (Critical Race Theory) in Lakota schools, the answer is undoubtedly there for all to see by what they do. Even though the radical elements of the school attempted to hide their bad conduct by making the new school board member Darbi Boddy the center of attention, they showed their true colors at the school board meeting on May 9th, 2022. It was a marathon meeting that went over 3 hours long. I was there for over 4 hours, and it ended with an impassioned speech by Issac Adi, wanting to put a definition to the question about CRT being taught in Lakota schools. The teachers, of course, deny it, as does the school administrative leadership. But the evidence is in the students themselves. They use all the CRT language in what they say about “white privilege” and the values of American life in a historical context. Even though an audit of the teaching materials at Lakota would undoubtedly show massive amounts of CRT present in every classroom, you don’t even have to go that far to see it. On the topic of sexual grooming in the halls of Lakota and CRT, all you have to do is look at the pictures the radicals put on the backs of their chairs for the official video of the Lakota school board meeting to learn all you need to about what is going on in the classrooms. They changed the names of CRT to other things to shake people off the trail but to see what’s really going on and study what the kids are learning about their country and society in general; the evidence is right there. It might be by a different name or method, but the intent is the same.

The anger at Darbi Boddy was that she didn’t follow the school’s rules to protect teachers from outside judgment and for the public not to learn about the progressive radicalism seething within the halls of one of the largest public schools in Ohio. Just for trying to discover the extent of the damage, the Lakota superintendent Matt Miller issued a trespassing order against school board member Darbi Boddy which made national headlines, banning her from setting foot on any school grounds–even though she is a member of management. At the end of the meeting, Issac struggled to find the words to define CRT and how to find it in the teaching methods at Lakota. Darbi had gone into the schools themselves to find that evidence. But truly, the evidence came to the school board meeting that night in all its ugliness. And it could be seen and heard in the speakers who attempted to fire Darbi Boddy from the school board just for asking the questions about CRT, which they want so much to conceal. And in their anger, they displayed all the proof we needed. 

Critical Race Theory has been around for quite a few decades, and it started coming to us through entertainment programming, such as what MTV was famous for. The 1619 Project sought to make CRT more of a civil rights platform politically by putting the teaching into the schools through federal and state dollars flowed down into every public school. This has been going on for a long time. Their goal was to reinterpret American history and turn the slavery issue into a means to backdoor Marxism into American life behind the guilt of racism. The 1619 Project entirely means to erase the start of American life and repurpose its creation as invalid because it was built on slave labor starting in 1619 when the first slaves were brought to North America. Of course, these attackers of American life get all the history wrong; it was the British government that brought slavery to America. The Revolution that created America started the process of freeing slaves globally, and it was Republicans that eventually did it. That is the true history that should be taught in our schools. But students being taught by The 1619 Project flow down influence through the front groups like Black Lives Matters have been taught that white people have privilege and that they owed black people reparations for that privilege. Until very recently, until really last summer after the release of Mark Levine’s book American Marxism most Americans weren’t aware of this teaching going on in their public schools. School boards were trying to put a friendly face on the activity because there wasn’t much they could do about it, so they tried to hide the fact from even themselves with all the feel-good awards that go on politically. But the effect on the kids was unmistakable. Children are now the products of this teaching, and it shows in what they have learned and now communicate to the world. 

I spoke at the 2-hour and 51-minute mark in defense of Darbi and to illustrate how sexual grooming had been introduced to children through the Pride Movement, which has hijacked rainbows to soft-sell alternative sexual lifestyles to young people. Of course, this led to a lot of heckling from the audience that wasn’t heard much by the video audio because the microphones were feeding the video source, and the audience didn’t have microphones. But you can see by my reaction when the audience was being ostentatious, and they were like that all evening, for the entire length of the meeting. They came to fight and prove their point. And the purpose of their aggression was to hide what they were up to. And it worked for the most part. This isn’t the kind of thing that the media circus provoked by the school board to get rid of Darbi Boddy wanted to report on. Their story angle was that the community didn’t support the new school board member and the demands for her resignation forced her off the board. But that’s not the story they got, and you could see the disappointment on their faces around 10 PM that night once they had missed all their media deadlines for the 11 PM news. Rather, the support for Darbi Boddy from the audience was much stronger than anybody thought it would be. I was certainly one, but I wasn’t the only one. And that was with the audience packed with radical lunatics who obviously have a very aggressive political agenda against the kids in the school, as was evident by the backs of their chairs and the signs they held up during the whole meeting. 

To know that CRT is being taught in Lakota schools, just look at what they do and what kinds of kids have been produced from the public school. Listen to what they say, which was a lot during that meeting, especially toward the end. Then judge that based on what they do, the signs, the heckling, the attempt to pack the room to give the media cameras the illusion of public sentiment. Like I said to them, the room was a small one; it didn’t represent anything close to the 8000 voters who had just voted for Darbi Boddy to do precisely what she was in trouble for, to uncover evidence of sexual grooming in Lakota’s classrooms and to get CRT out of the school altogether. She wasn’t going to be able to do that following rules that the teacher’s union created to hide their bad behavior. But in actuality, she didn’t even need to do that much. The evidence was at the school board meeting. Radicalism was apparent for all to see. Many of the people who supported Darbi Boddy were afraid to come and speak, and I can see why. In the video, you can see where my wife got entangled with some of the most vocal radicals in the audience. They called over the police to seek protection because my wife challenged them to a further debate after the meeting was done, and they didn’t want to do it. Most people don’t want to go to a school board meeting to fight, but the radicals clearly came there to do just that.

The media circus created by the school board in an effort to get rid of their newest member-only reported that part of the story, ignoring the worst elements that were openly displayed for all to witness. The only conclusion that could be made from the meeting is that CRT and sexual grooming are happening aggressively in Lakota and all public schools. And that those same radical elements which have been crying to defund the police over the last few years need a taste of their own medicine. Those who don’t want to see CRT in their public schools should develop their own slogan to defund the schools for the damage they are causing our children. The pain that Issac Adi was trying to articulate at the end of the meeting is the unsaid aspect of the whole enterprise. Public schools are very political; they are political indoctrination machines intent on turning our kids against us as a nation. Groups like Black Lives Matters and The 1619 Project have made them so through the funding machine at the federal and state level. We will never see CRT if we attempt to make public schools non-political, which most board members want to do. They want to save public schools and to make them centerpieces of the entire community. But public schools are too far gone for that; the corrosive political influence of Marxist extremists has already been doing their work for many decades. They wanted to blame Darbi for destroying that illusion, and it didn’t work. Rather, the evidence was all around them, and they could not see it because they didn’t want to admit to themselves the obvious. CRT isn’t just all over the walls of Lakota; it’s in the radicals who were the products of public education right in front of their faces. And it was disgusting to see.

I Hate Slow People: Speed is the key to a good American life

One of the most painful things in the world for me to deal with is slow people. I’ve always been attracted to fast draw with guns, and I have spent a lot of time practicing Cowboy Fast Draw over the years, working out the details of my book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business. But before any of that, I have always driven fast, very fast. I do everything fast because speed is how I have been able to do so many things in my life in such a short period. My attitude certainly clashes with people when I go to Europe. They can be friendly people, but they are sloooooooowwwww at everything. If a psychologist were to peel back my hatred of progressives and Democrats in general, they would discover that my reasoning is that they think too much like slow-minded people worldwide, especially in Europe. In Europe, they will often indicate that there is no reason to be in a hurry to get anywhere, just to relax. Well, that’s not acceptable to me, so when I talk about fast draw with guns, that is a place where I am in my happiest place, in working with time in fractions of a second rather than minutes and hours or even days. I talk about often in my book of the benefit of thinking fast, professionally because it allows you to do many things in a business day that might take others weeks to do, even on the executive side of a business.

I find that in my life, I often do in a day what many who are in leadership might consider reasonable in a week. And when I say all that, I don’t mean it as a reckless endeavor.   Accuracy, to me, is just as important. The lazy people of the world have created a falsehood: speed happens as a compromise to accuracy, and that just isn’t the case. Instead, it displays good people against bad people, and speed has a value that brings to light a person’s quality. It is most often the case that lazy, stupid people are also deliberately slow, and they are the first to say that if they go too fast, they will make a mistake. All that says to me is that the person using speed as an excuse is simply trying to use the fear of a low-quality experience to cover for their lack of skill.

For whatever reason, over these last several months, I have dealt with more government pinheads than usual. Maybe with Covid gone and just realizing it, they have finally come out of their homes and back into the workplace. But they are back, and when you deal with them, they are talking the same nonsense as before, only now it is worse. Covid protocols by the slow-minded CDC losers have given the lazy of the world an excuse now. It’s acceptable more than ever to these government types to take the European mindset of slower is better, and we’ll get there eventually. Just this last week, I had to sit through a meeting with one of these guys, who I’m sure is a nice fellow. He probably has kids that love him. Maybe even a wife. But, wow, was he a slow-minded fool. He kept repeatedly saying, “we have to slow down so as not to make a mistake.” I tried to be as polite as I could, but the guy was taking a 15-minute conversation and turning it into 50, and asking for more time, which I never have to give to anybody. At least not some government bureaucrat. I hate government as much as I do because government is slow. The people in it are slow. And I just don’t like slow people. I understand our constitution is meant to slow down the speed of government. I certainly would never stand for the kind of authoritarian government that China has. They argue that they can move fast because they don’t have to get votes. It’s just one person who decides then everyone else follows. They made it look like it works in China by killing off all the types of people who might stand in their way, so in that way, they have made a very compliant society. But, they are still slow; they just don’t transfer that slowness through a bureaucracy. What they do is considerably worse, but it’s all bad in my mind. They measure actions in minutes, which I do in fractions of a second. 

Learning to think as fast as you must in Cowboy Fast Draw is unique to American culture, and it’s something we should be proud of. Thinking fast is hard-working and innovative. Thinking slow is lazy and accepting of the conditions of the world. By practicing a sport that requires a shooter to think in fractions of a second, it also impacts everything else in your life. It won’t take long to become frustrated with the slowness of everyone, the mask-wearing liberal who pulls out in traffic and is too slow to get up to speed, or the slow person fumbling with their groceries at the self-checkout. It takes them too long to bag their food and fumble with the payment display. Or, god forbid, going to the license bureau, participating in the medical industry, or visiting the post office—slow, slow, mind-numbing slow. It is my point of view, based on experience, that the key to American life is speed, not relaxing and waiting for things to happen. Americans make things happen, and they don’t take all day to do them. Part of Making America Great Again is in the speed in doing it. In not hiding laziness behind an illusion of quality. If a person doesn’t slow down, that bad quality will follow. Americans understand that bad quality happens when speed is pressing because the person doing the task is unskilled, and they haven’t spent their lives making themselves faster with practice. They have accepted the low expectations of government and slow-minded cultures as a way to disguise their own mundane outlook on the world. 

I’ve heard the excuse, especially from machining where tolerances are stoned into thousands of inches over a 10′ span, that they could screw up the whole project if they go fast. I say to those people, not if you are good at what you are doing. If you are good, you will be as fast as you can possibly be, even on delicate jobs. Learning to think fast helps a mind process more information, which makes for a better life lived. If speed causes stress, well, it’s because the mind isn’t equipped for it, and it should be. Americans should never accept slowness on anything. Yet that is the new expectation coming out of Covid: we should all slow down, like the Europeans, take our time. Maybe sit back and have some tea and crackers if we get too stressed out. That government pinhead I am referring to is the worst kind of human being, a lazy person who uses slowness as a moral assumption, then projects it to others to explain the lack of effort. And when dealing with such slow people, it is infuriating!
