I know it’s scary out there. The news is one constant outpouring of crises every day. With the debacle of Afghanistan, the threats from China, the power of our out-of-control government going complete tyrannical rule over mask mandates and vaccines, it looks pretty hopeless. But when you unplug from the television and go to places like the Freedom Rally we had in Butler County, Ohio at The Big Bul Roadhouse and listen to Sheriff Jones and Corey Lewandowski speak along with some good music, cold beer, and lots of American flags, you will find that our country is still there. It’s just that the rest of the world doesn’t see it because our media won’t show it on TV. But it’s there, and I saw it for myself. I include above and below videos of the event to share. I have many people from other countries who read here daily, so this is meant for them. Especially in Taiwan, where there is some genuine terror that America will fall and not be there for them, China will gobble them up because that is what the media propaganda is saying there as we withdraw from Afghanistan. For those in the United States, I’m sure you can find a similar Freedom Rally like this in your neighborhood. Although Butler County, Ohio, is a special place, there are similar events all over the country. But those in other countries like Serbia and the Netherlands, where I have several readers every day who turn to this site for hope and encouragement, I’m happy and proud to share how life is in Butler County, Ohio, where freedom and liberty are still very much alive.
It’s always great to have our Sheriff Jones speak at these kinds of things. He was hilarious. I only filmed a portion of his comments, mainly because I was right up front with the camera, and I didn’t want to ruin his speech with a constant recording. Sometimes with these kinds of things, you want to let the intimate setting between the speaker and the audience have its way, and Sheriff Jones was off the chain funny. Even more so after I turned off the camera. But in the clips here, you get the point. And should he be talking like that, you might ask? After all, he’s in his fifth term as Sheriff, and he has no plans to retire. Well, yes, he should talk like that. He is the last line of defense between the people of Butler County and the kind of tyranny that comes out of the federal and state governments. Sheriff Jones, over the years, has earned my respect the way he stands up to governors and presidents, reminding them often before anybody else in the country that power flows from the counties up to the federal level, not the other way around. In many ways, your local Sheriff is the most powerful office holding job in the country, even more so than the President of the United States. We aren’t taught that in school, but in reality, that’s how it is. And we certainly have a good one in Butler County, Ohio. I am very proud to have him on my team! He can say whatever he wants as far as I’m concerned because the situation warrants it. We can’t play pattycake with the enemies of America.
Many of us who live in Butler County, Ohio, think of it as a small town, a northern suburb of Cincinnati that is off the national radar. But in truth, it is the epicenter of conservative politics. I’ve been to most of the states this year, traveling extensively, and I can report that no place else is the politics and organization of the Republican Party better and more passionate. Other cities have pockets of conservativism. I am thinking of Cody, Wyoming, where I don’t think there is a Democrat anywhere. They were very solid there, but in Butler County, there are over 400,000 residents, and things could be much more complicated. Yet, it’s all pretty simple. We have great office holders because we maintain them well in Butler County. We have events like this freedom rally where officeholders and the people who put them in power can talk to each other and have fun. It’s a relationship that feeds both the politics and the community healthily and unusually. And it’s always refreshing to experience. Sheriff Jones is the perfect embodiment of all those needs, and he plays that role to the best of his abilities, which shows.
That’s how a prominent national figure like Corey Lewandowski from the Trump campaign found himself speaking that night at the Big Bul. If there was Trump country anywhere in the world, Butler County was it. And he probably needed to talk to us as much as we needed to hear from him. Everything coming out of the news was negative these days for America, and we all needed to remind each other why we were still honoring our flag. Because Woke politics was in full bloom, and everything has been attacked. It was good to listen to good country music and gather in the heat to recalibrate our sentiments to the fight ahead. And Corey showing up to tell stories about working with Trump was just the right thing at the right time. He was the closest thing we had to Trump at a time when we were hungry for solutions. I had been dragging my wife to many political events lately, all of them good and essential. But she was looking for a night off. When I told her Corey Lewandowski would speak at this Big Bul event, she was eager to go. And there were a lot of people there who came for the same reasons. Corey Lewandowski was a door to Trump, and people were looking for a rallying point to grab on to. While he was on stage, they had found it. Corey was great. Again, the language was a bit harsh, but then, so are the circumstances. People want to fight back against the wokeness, and Corey understood that and gave the crowd just what they were looking for.
As I said in the video above, many diverse people were there; the Bikers for Trump were there in force. There were big donor millionaires there, and at the same tables, people could barely wipe together two nickels to get a quart of oil to change in their cars. Such people would never associate with each other equally anywhere globally, but they do in Butler County, Ohio, and certainly that night at the Big Bul. Everyone agreed that they loved America; they love Trump because he’s willing to defend America, not attack it like most of our politics wanted to. And we were wargaming for future elections where Trump types of Republicans would take office seats, and we would fight back against this invasion starting in our communities, then our states, then at the federal level. We would put Trump back in the White House, and the world can’t see that yet. But at the Big Bul in Ross, Ohio, deep within Butler County, it was apparent. The words were strong, the applause even louder. The beer was cold. And the path forward is quite clear. America wouldn’t lose this war; we would return even more significantly now that we see the cards on the table. And we’re playing to win this time, not just trying to get along.
