I really like what Joe Statzer and others are doing in Butler County to get some official media to cover all the good officeholders concentrated in the northern suburbs. With their new YouTube channel True Spoken GOP, Joe has collected several interviews with stars of the GOP and future stars. And yes, I think stars is the right word because it takes a lot of guts to put themselves out there and work the ropes in ways many people have no idea about to make the world a little bit better. We work hard in Butler County, Ohio, to make its government-run well, and at the top of that star-driven pyramid is Sheriff Jones, who is world-famous. I am very proud to have him as our sheriff because if he wasn’t, it’s likely that things would have been much worse during these Covid overreaches that we have seen out of the DeWine administration and, ultimately, the Biden administration. Sheriff Jones has held firm, and recently, he gave an excellent speech at Big Bul’s in Ross, Ohio that was a lot of fun. I recorded a few sections of it for my article, but I had wanted to hear it again. Thankfully, Joe and the great people operating True Spoken GOP captured it pretty much intact and put it up, which I think is worth sharing. It’s people like Sheriff Jones who will stand up to any communist infusion first coming from the Biden administration. But over our shores and beyond our borders, there are schemes and plots from the Davos crowd working with China to overthrow America’s influence worldwide. And it can look pretty scary, that is until you go to one of these GOP events and Sheriff Jones speaks. When he does, suddenly, the world makes a lot more sense.
I can’t get to every event, but I try to go to as many as possible. I have been participating in more GOP events lately because there is a real political need to help in some of these areas, and I do what I do to help. I see it as a community thing, in helping shape the kind of government we want. Sometimes money isn’t enough, nor is it just volunteering. Occasionally other items are needed, and with the way things are right now, people are required to help make things better. We can’t just sit around and complain about how we’d like things to be. We need to help make them better, and as I say often, politics is like a blood sport. Competition makes it better, but sometimes even with the heat of the pressure, there needs to be some strategy that everyone can agree on. And sometimes, like that event at Big Bul’s, it’s just nice to sit back and let other people talk and to show everyone that there is more of a fighting chance at surviving the problems of the present without losing ourselves along the way. That night Sheriff Jones opened up for a speech by Corey Lewandowski, and for the audience, it was something they needed. Both speakers are part of the inner workings of the Trump campaign. Sheriff Jones has been to the White House a few times and worked directly with Trump, and that night, people wanted to be close to Trump, and Sheriff Jones was a suitable representative. It was a good night.
I remember the night well when things looked bad for Trump, a few days after the Access Hollywood blast from the mainstreamers sought to kill Trump’s campaign right before the election in 2016. I was at the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, which was filled to the top with about 19,000 people. I had to do an overseas meeting with some people I work with at the same time that Sheriff Jones was speaking before Trump arrived, and he was so loud I had a hard time finishing the call. There was no place in US Bank Arena that I could go to where I could hear the other people. Sheriff Jones was so loud that night. But I wasn’t mad. I managed through it. I was more grateful that Jones had the guts to stick with Trump during a tough week. It looked like our hopes of getting Trump was going to fall short and that we’d be stuck with Hillary Clinton. But Sheriff Jones showed up with Rudy Giuliani, and they lit up the audience before the arrival of Trump. And once Trump did arrive, after that evening, I felt that he was still going to win, no matter what the media was telling us.
That’s how it felt at Big Bul’s during that speech that Sheriff Jones gave there. He went around the audience beforehand and shook everyone’s hand. I had a chance to talk to him a bit. We both love our cowboy hats, and I had just picked up a new one from a recent trip out west to Jackson Hole, which he noticed. And I just felt proud at that moment to have Jones in our corner within Butler County. Some brutal battles have been fought over the years, and he’s always a reminder that good does beat evil. That’s how I felt before the speech. After the speech, I felt even more confident than I did after the US Bank Arena speech that we would win this modern tragedy involving the Biden administration and a global cabal who wants to destroy everything it means to be American. That night at Big Bul’s, the real Americans showed up on a steamy evening in August of 2021 and drew a line in the sand. We weren’t going to be conquered by the progressive left. We were going to stand up to them and do what we had to do. But for a moment in time, we’d crack some jokes, shake hands with one another, then we’d pull down our hats and do what had to be done.
Sheriff Jones has been a great warrior in Butler County. I hope to have him for a sixth term, or perhaps even a seventh. I hope we have him for sheriff for many more years. But I am grateful for the times we have had. It’s mainly because of him that we do have good officeholders in Butler County. He’s done an excellent job of leading by example and exerting influence leadership in the blood sport of politics. Because in the end, we have won a lot more than we’ve lost, and we have survived to tell stories about it. And I have a feeling even many years from now; there will still be stories of Sheriff Jones and the leadership he provided when the community needed it most, as hope looked like it was fading. Only for us to realize that we were only a joke or two from beating back the progressive advances of a maleficent force of antagonists who want to destroy everything we stand for. But not so fast, not at Big Bul’s in Ross, Ohio with our white-hatted sheriff, a direct connection to President Trump who has been exiled from the White House, only to return, with all our help, to retake our country and push out the thieves caught trying to steal it. Revenge is coming, but that doesn’t mean we have to take things too seriously. There will be time for that later. Now, while the time comes near, it’s the mark of a good leader to know how to ease people’s minds with a bit of laughter and camaraderie.
