Why Do So Many Public Employees Want to Have Sex With Children: Because we let them

To be entirely honest, I’m let down by just about everyone I know and have known. In regard to this whole Matt Miller situation at Lakota, I just toss it on the pile of all the disappointments I have seen come out of that government school over many years. And it really hasn’t mattered who ran the school board, the methods have always been the same, and that has been disappointing but predictable. Initially, before the police report revealed what Matt Miller thinks about sexual fantasies that should disqualify him from ever working with children, I have heard from so many vile and evil people wondering why I felt I had a right to pass judgment at all on the matter. Sadly, that is at the real heart of the problem. So many people are willing to put up with bad behavior out of their own personal wants and desires to live the blue pill life and pretend that nothing is going on. Going back to my relationship with Darryl Parks at Clear Channel radio, where we frequently did stories on bad conduct in public schools, there wasn’t anything that surprised me about this latest escapade at Lakota because I have been covering detrimental activity in public schools for several decades. But when Clear Channel moved on from Darryl Parks and was one of the first to move to a more ESG-friendly environment of corporatism, all the Tea Party types, like Doc Thomson, who was fired while on his honeymoon in Egypt, the writing was on the wall. It’s not that evil was in charge, but the good people who had the fortitude to expose it was the enemy, which is still the case. And that type of evil feels empowered to lash out at anybody who judges them, and the roots run deep into every community in ways that would make even the greatest optimist eternally sad.

The question everyone should be asking is why so many public employees have an obsession with underage sex. We’ve talked about a few high-profile cases, such as Matt Miller at Lakota, according to the talked about police report. But recently, a person I have known well, John Gray, the school board president from Goshen, was found guilty of trying to give a naked backrub to an 11-year-old girl. I’ve always thought of him as a good Christian community leader, but citizen journalism caught him two hours away in Indiana trying to buy some candy to give the girl before meeting her for a category of sexual encounter. The story had a few days of sensational media coverage; then, it was gone like a thief in the night. John Gray quietly disappeared into the background, Goshen moved on from him, and the school board business public relations resumed without anybody wanting to get very deep into the matter. These names mentioned are or were considered big community names with a lot to lose if they got caught doing mischief. They were people of comfortable incomes, everything going well for them in life, at least from outward appearances. So why risk anything for underage sex or sex of any kind? What would be the point? Well, those government education environments were founded on the premise of evil in the first place. And as a result, the products they produce are employees who abuse their authority routinely and find easy victims among the innocent children who attend. And there are just too many acts of evil to ignore, and to call it less would be dishonest.

There has been a lot of talk about Venessa Wells in all this Matt Miller conversation, as if she did something wrong. Lynda O’Conner, the school board president, doesn’t like her, which I never understood. Well, actually, Venessa brought a lawsuit against Lakota for a procedural violation, and since Lynda was part of the school board that had the violation, it certainly poured cold water into their relationship. I didn’t think it was a big deal, as Lynda didn’t really play a role in the cause of the legal action. But she thought otherwise for reasons that seemed too committed to the Lakota school board mess we were trying to fix. Venessa won the incident, and all those same characters have been involved in this Matt Miller case. But Venessa was just the vehicle for the information, and she passed it where it needed to go. Yet members of the community who want to think Matt Miller and Lakota schools have some deity presence were upset and rushed to judgment, quickly disparaging Venessa and anybody attached to her. But few understand that Venessa became politically active at Lakota not out of a desire to bring down the school or everyone in it but because her daughter was threatened by another student to be killed a few years ago. When Venessa reported the incident, the school board didn’t want to do anything about it because the kid who made the threat was the son of an ambassador, and nobody wanted to create an incident. Venessa felt disparaged and was inspired to run for school board, and along the way, she ran into all kinds of problems from the established order, which evolved into that lawsuit. Then eventually, the friends of Matt Miller’s ex-wife reached out to Venessa because they knew her as a person who wanted to run for the school board but also might be trusted due to her relationship with Darbi Boddy. And as a result, we have learned about just another public employee with a crazy sexual lifestyle that many people would be embarrassed by, leaving many people shaking their heads. 

I could tell so many stories like this over the many years, but another story sticks in my head from a teacher who clearly abused their power with a parent of a special needs child. I’m still friends with a lot of these people, and they assure me that I have free room and board if I ever want to visit in all 50 states, as most of them moved away from Lakota for one reason or another. This particular child was struggling; the teacher thought the mom was hot stuff. So, he manipulated things in a series of ways to start a sexual relationship with her, kind of a sex for good grades type of deal. The mom wanting to do anything to help her child, got pulled into it. She was happy to get some attention, as many people would be. So, one thing led to another, and soon they were at my home telling me their story of power, abuse, and cover-ups by the school board to protect the teacher, who was wildly out of control for his behavior. The first instinct of the board was to protect the teacher, shut up the mother and father, and the last consideration was undoubtedly the child. And once word gets out that the school board and the media culture will protect the bad behavior whatever it is, even in the sexual molestation of children, then all the public employees feel immune to any kind of social judgment. We then get a lot more of that bad behavior. It was citizen journalism that did the leg work. You didn’t see Channel 5 out in Indiana busting John Gray. You don’t see Jennifer Edwards from Fox 19 digging into the story of Matt Miller. But if it were a political rival to Sheriff Jones, she would have done a front-page story and had it all over social media. Rather than be surprised, at this point, I’m just numb to it. I had hoped to see better results, especially with a more conservative board. But essentially, the system itself produces many of these evils, and when confronted with the need to do right from wrong, they pick wrong all the time out of what they think is self-preservation for the institution. And it continues to be a sad story without a happy ending. Kids continue to suffer because the adults in charge are terrible people, which then makes those kids grow up and into, terrible people. Because they are learning by watching us. I would think that not wanting to have sex with children would be the easiest thing in the world. But, from what we know about the behavior of public employees, its actually a big problem that nobody wants to talk about.

Liberals are Too Stupid to Hurt You: But they are also too stupid to know better

It’s time to admit something to ourselves that might sound harsh initially, but if you want to solve the problem, you have to identify the root cause. And that is that liberals, all liberals, are pretty stupid and that the rights they are fighting for are to make the rest of the world as dumb as they are, which of course, is detrimental to the causes of the human race. Liberals are dumb people, and what is worse than any of that, they are too dumb not to know how dumb they really are. Because they lack the ability to think, reason, and build their lives constructively, they always think they are the smartest people in the room. And through the disguises of collectivism, where they hide their stupidity behind a wall of mass opinion and popular sentiment, they complete a ruse that is mostly designed for themselves to provide the illusion that they have intelligence. Yet, the essence of their movement, of all that they stand for, is that they are fighting for the right to be stupid and to make the rest of the world that way, so they aren’t exposed as insufficient for a proper existence. When you have to talk to them, liberals are about as stupid as a typical animal, barely able to find food for themselves while they are awake as they plot and scheme the world around them to have more time to sleep. They aren’t about living life; they stand for turning the mind off with drugs, mindless entertainment, and overly sexualized lifestyles that an average horny dog might partake in while humping the leg of everyone who steps into their home. Liberals are gross, barbaric, and have nothing to offer the intellect of a long history of human endeavor and are not only detriments to themselves but to all, they come in contact with.

The Biden speech in Philadelphia is just one example of this stupidity. Someone in the White House and representative of the Democrat Party thought it would be a good idea to put a senile old man in front of a building draped in red, with military figures in the background, and that the optics would be beneficial to them in some way. These are the same idiots who have hampered California with insufficient electrical power because they are worshiping the god of Climate Change these days and are imposing their solar panels and wind turbans that barely work on the people. Then they want further to impose electric cars on that much-reduced power grid only to tell people to turn off their air conditioners during 100-degree days to save energy that they artificially imposed on themselves as a sacrifice to their stupid religion. Or the optics of storming Mike Lindell in a Hardee’s drive-thru to attempt to scare Trump supporters with the terror of the administrative state because he is an “election skeptic.” Only a dumb person would look at the 2020 election and not see the obvious election fraud that Democrats and globalists worldwide pushed to implement with Covid restrictions and the strategy of their Great Reset. You’d have to be really stupid to say there was no election fraud. But to insist that people like Mike Lindell accept the liberal premise that 2+2 is five or some other absurdity, the harassment by the FBI against their rival political party continues to escalate as we get closer to the midterms. Who thinks that is a good idea except for very dumb people who obviously don’t know better? Well, the same idiots who signed off on that Biden speech, knowing full well how it would look, how it would sound, but they did it anyway, thinking they were going to get an A on their paper as judged by the media, which is about as dumb as they are. 

The truth of that Biden speech in Philly, where so much election fraud did occur during the 2020 election and is at the center of many investigations as to how nearly a million votes were dumped into the system after election day, taking a massive Trump lead and shaving it away until the brain dead Biden and his corrupt, criminal family was put into the White House by people obviously not part of the American voting system, you’d have to be a complete idiot not to see the problem. And there just aren’t enough dumb people who are willing to buy the stupidity to allow the Democrat Party to seize power in the way they have and not to question it. But because people generally play by the rules, they accepted Biden as the president and looked to the next election for an opportunity to fix things. But the dumb people of liberalism sought to implement all their insane ideas within just a few months of gaining that power. You see, this is why we have the kind of Republic form of government that we do have. Our government isn’t designed to go fast. It is designed to put on the brakes so that government can’t grow too big too fast and destroy free enterprise, which is the real miracle of all economic growth, unleashing the imagination of free people for the benefit of all life on planet earth. Liberals want to micromanage everything so that they aren’t exposed to the genuine stupidity of their lifestyles, and their lack of intellect can be hidden behind the mirage of mass society. In their minds, if everyone is dumb, they will never be exposed for their lack of knowledge. And life would go on happily ever after. 

But that is why everything they do presents a Hellish existence, much like the optics of the Biden speech in Philly came across. The truth is that they thought the Biden speech was going to be a hit, and they were perplexed afterward that it wasn’t. Just as they are in everything they do, from energy policy to currency evaluation. I think Biden started the war in Ukraine because of the United Nations’ goals to defeat nationalism worldwide, but it has only strengthened populist movements everywhere. Russia has the upper hand over Europe and is most poised to crush the Desecrators of Davos, who are a much more significant threat in the world than the Russians are by a lot. Speaking of Russians, we just learned that the FBI had a Russian spy on their payroll, and they used him to advance their phony Russia story to attempt a coup against Trump. Only stupid people would look at all these actions and their involvement on January 6th to try to create bad optics for Trump in the wake of a stolen election, which they helped to steal to put their guy Biden in the White House and think that they’d get away with it because they thought the rest of the world was as dumb as they were. They thought the fear of force would take even smart minds and force them to turn off their intelligence long enough to complete their ruse to the world. Instead, we ended up seeing a bunch of losers who children would laugh at as ridiculous on an old Flintstones rerun. They are dumb as rocks, which might insult the rocks. The goal of all liberalism is to hide their natural stupidity because only dumb people would even associate with such a cast of characters. And to do that, they must maintain the illusion that they are the smartest people in the room but attempt to dumb down the rest of the world literally. But, it hasn’t worked, and most people, voters particularly, see what’s going on, and they aren’t going along with it, which is why there is much panic and a show of force by liberals now. Their Liberal World Order is falling apart. Smart people knew it always would. The dumb people are perplexed now as to why.

The Lakota School Board Has Always Been Political: So why do they want peace now?

Wait a minute, why was Julie Shaffer crying at the Lakota school board meeting on September 12th? After all, she has been one of the most vicious political activists on the school board over the years. She has come after me before, quite viciously. In 2012, after Lakota had suffered its third levy defeat and figured that the only way they would ever win a tax increase from the community was to get rid of me, they came after me in a very public way, not in a softball manner. So since they couldn’t beat me in debate, Julie worked with several school board members and the Cincinnati media to destroy me viciously, which has been well chronicled. For most people, what she and the Lakota school board did to me would have destroyed them, and they didn’t care what it did to my family, life, or reputation in the community. They just wanted me gone, and they took the kill shot, and so did the Cincinnati media, which was hooked in lockstep with them, just as they are today. I have recently watched them do the same thing to Darbi Boddy. After voters elected her, the Lakota school board decided they didn’t want her, so they conspired to get rid of her viciously, with fangs out, and ruthlessly, blowing on the fires of liberal activism throughout the community. They didn’t care one bit what it might do to Darbi, her family, or her reputation. They simply wanted to destroy her in any way possible. 

But then, at the school board meeting’s closing comments, it came time for Julie to provide her’s; fighting back the tears, she said, “that I wish that people could remember that this is more than political theater and that these are people’s lives and future and what they worked for their entire career, and there are more people involved and that these are more than people’s points on a score card.” Well, isn’t that an astonishing statement? Who would have figured that she would say such a thing, given her track record? But then that opens up a whole new can of worms. Suppose she has such a public double standard depending on the political situation. How much bad behavior has she been willing to explain away in the past, knowing what this information tells us about her? I already know the answer, but for you, dear reader, let’s just have a little fun with it. For many years, I have heard of many cover-up stories that the Lakota school board has whitewashed. My hope was that with the current school board candidates that maybe that would change. But as soon as Darbi was elected, the knives came out, and surprisingly, Lynda did not come to her defense like I expected that she would and should. I have not been a fan of public education for many years now. I think teaching kids a progressive, liberal education is a huge waste of money. But I have worked with school board members like Lynda over the years to try and save the system. I have come to the defense of many who found themselves without a voice where the media did not want to tell their stories of bad conduct inflicted upon them to improve the school. I didn’t let my feelings toward people like Julie Shaffer inspire a campaign of complete destruction of the public school system in my district. I’ve held back a lot to make the thing work because I knew there were people like Lynda there trying to make it better. 

But then I heard at that same meeting Lynda gave a strange interpretation of the police report, which is available from the Sheriff’s Department as a public record’s request. Anybody can see it and read it, yet Lynda had a strange interpretation of it. She said, “there are no credible allegations against Mr. Miller. The Sheriff’s Office completed its investigation and found there was ‘no probable cause to initiate criminal charges.'” Well, actually, what the police report says at the end of a description of really extraordinary allegations and a police investigation that seems unreal is that the prosecutor said, “at this time,” as in to mean there wasn’t enough evidence at that point to further criminal charges. It does not “clear” Matt Miller as the media and Lynda said it did. Rather, it eludes to much more, suggesting that there may be more to come. What is implied, knowing some of the inside information from the various witnesses, is that it is hoped that this police report will shut down the investigation unless the public demands more. If the public does, then the prosecutor’s behind would be covered to further the investigation. What is astonishing is that Lynda establishes herself as the judge as to whether or not witnesses are credible or not. So what does that say about the school board that she leads? If someone comes forward with information that the school board doesn’t like, does that mean that the school board doesn’t take it seriously? If the Board is anti-Darbi, anti-Tea Party, anti-Republican, does that mean they will disregard the information if it comes from those sources? I have known Lynda O’Conner for a fifth of my life and think of her as a smart woman. A well-intentioned woman. These statements by her seem strange, not her. But then again, maybe the only reason I’ve ever had a relationship with her was for her to keep her enemies close. Nothing would surprise me. Like I say, always judge people based on what they do, not what they say. 

The hypocrisy of it all is that, on the one hand, the school board is all about politics so long as they are destroying the people they don’t want around. But, they will rally to their own people even if those people are guilty as can be, which everyone should find alarming. This isn’t some conspiracy theory; we see this publicly at school board meetings. Compare the police report with what the Board said at the meeting, and everything becomes very clear. Matt Miller created his own problems. Yes, people have a problem with his behavior and are making their opposition known. But people like Julie Shaffer and her school board accomplices set the ground rules for bloodthirsty politics long ago. They take public money to function, and I wouldn’t say I like paying it for the garbage we get from each graduating class. Lynda knows how I felt, but we still worked together to assemble a nice school board that represented the public more than we had. I am surprised that she turned on Darbi as she did. I was also surprised to hear her say the things she did at the latest school board meeting. But then again, maybe not. You never really find out about people until you go through the pressure cooker with them. If Matt hadn’t done what he did to Darbi with the help of the Board led by Lynda and people like Julie to destroy her completely, then the witnesses against Matt Miller would have probably never had the strength to speak out for themselves and go public with the information that has the Lakota superintendent in so much trouble now. He did it to himself. People are only willing to take so much, and because of what those antagonists did at Lakota toward conservatives in the community, over a long period of time, they have asked for what is happening now. And if Lynda doesn’t think the person who was married to Matt, and her many friends wasn’t a credible witness even after the police did their interviews, maybe she is having trouble with definitions these days, just as she obviously has with the police report.

Where is the Sheriff Jones Press Conference: Just ask your friendly Neighborhood Lakota School Board Member

Matt Miller of Lakota schools has been very open about trying to get rid of political enemies as he did Todd Parnell over woke politics during bad conduct among the student population, then again with Darbi Boddy when she showed up unannounced to take pictures on the walls of CRT teachings reported there. In both cases the Lakota superintendent, Matt Miller took action to force resignations, which was an insult to the people who voted for those representatives. He acted in a way that showed disregard for what damage might occur to those personalities and what it might cost them professionally or personally. That might seem fair in love and war, but when he stumbles on things, he shouldn’t expect people to treat him lightly. After a messy divorce, some of the documents from that divorce have been revealed by his ex-wife, and many within the Lakota school district have now seen what those documents say. He might say she’s crazy, as a lot of men do about their ex-wives as they try to move on after a previous marriage, but from what she has said about him, it’s clear that we need as a community to check it out. At the very least, the superintendent owes the tax-paying public an explanation that explains away what she has been saying with written testimony. I’ve never been a big fan of Matt, and always thought his $200,000 salary was too much and thought a less expensive person could quickly replace him. That evidence reported by his ex-wife was turned over to the police because it went well beyond politics and community gossip but straight to matters that only law enforcement should be dealing with. There were text messages which came from his phone with entire conversations on them where really bad things were talked about. They were screenshots taken by his spouse. The Lakota school board now has possession of much of this material in addition to many more items that are now public record and are available upon request. Could they be fake, perhaps, that was for the police to correspond through an investigation, which they have been conducting? I reminded everyone involved, which was a growing list of angry people made that way by the way Matt Miller dealt with his political enemies, that everyone had the right to due process. He might be innocent, and all this evidence could be made up. But as things have matured, it looked less likely, so it was all turned over to the police and the Lakota school board, and now that school has started, people are frustrated that the investigation was taking too long. Because based on previous actions and the safety of kids considered as the priority, the lack of urgency by all involved has left many questions. Questions, after all, are perfectly logical, especially after what we learned about the Jason Gmoser child pornography case. I personally like Mike Gmoser, the Butler County prosecutor. But his relationship to that case which carried with it life imprisonment, indicates to the community that when we hear of cases that might be unbelievable otherwise, we have an obligation to investigate at a minimum.

And for good reason, after all, there is a six-count indictment against Butler County Auditor Roger Reynolds over just a real estate transaction that led Sheriff Jones and the Attorney General, David Yost, to give press conferences about, and that entire case was built on hearsay, where one party said something about another party that was in the public eye. Many people think that the case against Roger Reynolds is entirely political. Still, if that is the level of criteria we are using to measure legal cases, then there is a lot more hearsay involved in the Matt Miller divorce where his ex-wife is saying in writing much, much, much worse. I again would offer that Matt might be innocent, but when there is that much smoke, there is fire to stir it up. Why wasn’t Sheriff Jones standing in front of his emblem at his office and giving a press conference announcing all he and the police were doing to protect kids from the potential danger of the superintendent at Lakota, according to a reliable witness, his ex-wife? Do we just take his word for her credibility? As a community that pays his salary and counts on him to sell Lakota to the world as a safe and reliable place to send children, are we supposed to ignore what she is struggling to say because it’s inconvenient or that we might personally like the superintendent? It would be one thing if the accusations were just spoken, but these were written in text messages, confirmed by police interviews, and court documents from the divorce corresponded with the conversations. So, there is more than enough evidence to take caution on the matter and find out what’s going on. But after several weeks, and school starting with many upset who know about the matter looking for some acknowledgment of justice, the cold reality of a perceived cover-up was beginning to take hold.

The media wasn’t camped outside his home the way they were with Darbi Boddy when Matt Miller served her with trespassing papers on a school she is supposed to be managing as a board member. Matt took it so far that her story made the national news, and it was very embarrassing for her. Wasn’t that a purposeful defamation of her character? She was only a few months on the job after being newly elected, and obviously, Matt Miller was doing to her what he had done previously to Todd Parnell. He might have thought that a good idea, but he made a lot of political enemies by doing it, and shortly after that came a barrage of whispers about his sex life. You would expect a person who makes as much money as he does to show better discretion than all this. He should have never picked fights like this unless he was squeaky clean, and I mean eat off the glass clean. He might have a good explanation for the behavior of his ex-wife, and he should explain it, instead of digging in and avoiding the problem publicly. His lack of direct response to these issues has fed the fears in the people who have seen the text messages. And for those he has made political enemies out of, they are looking for anything to hang him on. And if he gave them the rope, that’s on him.

One of those six indictments against Roger Reynolds is a statement by Jenni Logan, who surprisingly left her job as Lakota’s treasurer on August 1st of, 2022, just a few weeks ago. Given the timing of this information and how it has been brewing for much of the previous school year, we must now look at who knew what and when and how involved they were in all this, if at all. But first, we must allow due process to do its work. The evidence must be validated, and explanations are mandated. For people to regain trust in Lakota as a school system, an investigation is necessary because this erosion of trust has brought us to this place and was created by Lakota management. Trust is earned; it isn’t just given away by title and by the way Matt Miller has actively worked to get rid of political rivals, as he did with Todd Parnell, and has tried to do with great fanfare Darbi Boddy, there was going to be a cost to it. The anger created by him has caused people to talk, and evidence was bound to come forth. But this isn’t just some community gossip. It’s a family member and a network of mad moms provoked by a long history of Matt Miller’s community interaction. At the very least, he has shown really bad judgment. At the worst, that’s for the police investigation to determine. Based on how the Sheriff’s department went after Roger Reynolds over much less evidence, we should expect the police to confirm or deny the results of their investigation. Doing the right thing is sometimes very hard, but we all have an obligation to justice. Otherwise, we will just get a lot more bad behavior in the future. 

I would have preferred to just see what comes from the police investigation, but after the events that occurred on Monday the 22nd of August 2022 some understandings must be met. I watched the school board meeting to see how this issue would be addressed, knowing the contents of the email that was sent to the school board earlier that morning. The same email ended up in all of the media by the afternoon sent by the person who wrote the board her concerns. Yet the reaction by the superintendent was a threat that would open up a whole can of worms with witness testimony and submitted evidence, police interviews–and mostly silence by Lakota generally, except for massive amounts of gossip. What started as a concerned parent reporting what was told to her that was very much a police matter; the public employees don’t get to go on the attack against their boss, the voters of Lakota. Explanations are the burden of the superintendent, it’s his life, his mess, and it’s up to him to explain all this to people for continued employment. The institution of Lakota is not more important than the individual people involved. And as to the superintendent’s reputation, he has to be able to manage all these things as part of his job. He owes us, the taxpayers, a lot of answers. But he doesn’t get to boss around members of the community for things he has himself opened the door to. He is not the victim, he is the responsible party, and the burden of explanation falls on him.

The History and Mistakes of Masons: Understanding why Never-Trumpers are failing all over the world

People are always anxious whenever the subject of Masons or Freemasonry is brought up because that indicates in popular culture the camouflage of conspiracy theories that many of these secret societies have used to hide their political manipulations over the years. And people naturally assume that they are made up of dark and evil forces who secretly control all our lives, and much of that has been on purpose to help sell their effectiveness in the world. But like all things, the truth is often a combination of many things, good and bad, and can’t be summed up easily with the definitions our public educations and media culture have given us. Instead, an expanded understanding of the world around us is required to understand what is really happening in the example of the massive Liz Cheney loss in Wyoming and the activism of Joe Biden abusing his authority with the FBI to break into a former president’s home in an attempt to eliminate a future political rival. And many people are still spinning from the effects of global government dominance regarding Covid, so they don’t really know which way is up these days. But it’s not too complicated if you understand what forces are at work. But yes, to explain all that, a general history of Masons in America and Europe must be understood, and to know that their goals, as they always have been, were to take the world into a global unity where eastern religions became the primary influence, just as it was in Egypt during the many thousands of years of rule there. Masons see Egypt as the ideal society, and the goal of the higher degrees has been to return to those eastern religions, and to a large degree, that is why America was formed in the first place. To escape the Roman Catholic persecutions in Europe and carry their ideas for a New Atlantis to the New World and build their ideal society. Ben Franklin was a Mason; George Washington was a Mason. Many of the founding fathers were, and it is accurate to say, America would not have happened without Masons. That is why there is a giant Egyptian obelisk just outside the White House in Washington D.C., the city of Masons and their dedication to the traditions of the Gnostics, the Cathars, the Knights Templars, and then finally, Freemasons. 

I’ve been in many Masonic temples, there is usually a large building in every city and community across America dedicated to Freemasonry, so it’s impossible to discuss anything political or religious without them being part of the conversation. Yet, they are never really included because they are secretive about their function. Masonic temples are often very Egyptian in their design and purpose, and it lures their initiates to continue with their studies for great wisdom by referring to one of the longest-running societies that we so far know about in the history of the world. But, they see themselves in two ways: freeing the world through education in ways that the Roman Catholics and western civilization have generally failed at up until the time of America’s westward expansion. But they also see themselves as the great philosopher kings of Plato’s Republic, working in the background and helping humanity guide itself along a productive life. And everything is fine until people don’t do what they expect them to do. From the perspective of the Masons, the American Revolution was a success story. Things worked out pretty well, and an excellent Constitution and Bill of Rights were formed based on the long failures of civilization up to that point in time. But the French Revolution turned out to be a disaster. Masons conducted their actions in secret for a good reason because in their past roles, as Knights Templars, Cathars and Gnostics, they were invariably hunted down and killed. So they began to plot the downfall of all world rulers through Freemasonry, which led directly to the American and French Revolutions. Because of the violence and failure of the French Revolution, because the French turned away from freedom and back toward monarchy not long after Napoleon was no longer emperor, they turned to Karl Marx for a new way to topple monarchies and top-heavy aristocracies, which is how Lenin was sent to Russia from Germany. And why to this day, the Desecrators of Davos operating through various masks of Marxism have involved themselves in the various trade guilds and dominate finance. It was always part of the plan from the beginning. Each generation would take a portion of the plan, and they would pass the baton to the next generation through the various Mason halls toward their goals of globalism and the eventual restoration of an Egyptian type of society, with them acting as the great wise advisors to guide mankind through the ages, as they saw things. 

But there was a little bump in the road. While the Masons were planning the overthrow of the colonies of Europe, and the rest of the Masons, including Napoleon and several of the Spanish leaders, were all on board with helping facilitate the utopia of Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis in the new world, the Louisiana Purchase was more of a plan than a calculated good deal, just as President Jackson had always wanted to take Florida from Spain. They gave it up without much of a fight for the same reasons. And so too was the Spanish American War where Santa Anna, the Mason was extinguished without much of a real fight. While they fought for their sovereign countries, they were all brother Masons. Like NFL teams playing against each other on Sunday, they may have played each other on the field. But they were all playing for the same NFL. In their quest for freedom from tyrant kings from Europe, they unleashed a new kind of human being in America, the gunslingers and expansionist adventurers who found freedom under the new Constitution and did not even want to listen to the philosopher kings of the high degree Masonic order. What we call the establishment is really a brotherhood of Masons who thought they were making a world of free and enlightened people, but once they arrived at their destination in America, they found, as they did during the French Revolution, that things got out of hand, and they are now unable to put it all back in the bottle again. And now, in the 2020s, after many thousands of years of struggle, they don’t understand why people would pick MAGA over their Masonic order, their philosopher-kings built by their Liberal World Order, the Seven Liberal Arts by way of education. Now you can understand why the Never Trumper movement hates Trump so much. Trump was not a Mason. He was not a product of their Liberal World Order. He was an ostentatious, materialist, capitalist, fearless, non-crying human being as far from Egyptian society as a person could get. This was not a person guided by the Star of the East; he did not worship Isis or schedule his day around horoscopes and the bright star of Sirius. He didn’t seek guidance from the supernatural to do things; he did them on his own and with extraordinary recklessness. So in that way, by empowering the West to overthrow the dictatorships of the world, as was the plan—then to use the West to rebuild the world by propping up China and reestablishing eastern religions that unite the world, Americans went their own way and even pushed away the Masons from their lives. And they picked Donald Trump and the MAGA movement over their thousands of years of plans handed from father to son to grandson through the ages to the ultimate rejection that we see today. And that is why that look of desperation was on Dick Cheney’s face when Wyoming was poised to reject his daughter in an election. And why the FBI is willing to break the law to preserve the more profound law they serve, the Masonic order that built them in the first place. And now it’s all falling apart, and they have no idea what to do about it.

The Caves of Lakota Schools: An email and another attempt to divert attention to Darbi Boddy from where the real problems are

I keep getting asked why I haven’t reported on the big Lakota story. Well, for all the reasons that we saw at the last school board meeting, one of the most intense emails that could be sent to a government body was sent that very day. But in the end, the board was OK with Channel 5 doing a story about a mad mom complaining about fellow board member Darbi Boddy again, who compared her to a school shooter. That was the news at 11 after a day of very interesting information. I received the same email that the board had, so I knew the content of it, and based on that, then the meeting started with a strange executive session; another hit piece by Lakota against Darbi Boddy was hardly a concern. Instead, watching the behavior of everyone involved has been interesting. As I say all the time, don’t listen to what people say; watch what they do, and you’ll learn the truth. Or, in this case, “don’t say.” I am watching how the authorities deal with this email. They have the information, and the clock is ticking.

The silence has been revealing. Everyone in town had this email. I had communicated with Karin Johnson from Channel 5 earlier that morning, so the buzz was……buzzing. Yet the story they chose to do was one against Darbi Boddy, again, about the same trespassing in the halls story they have been pushing. And that story was one that Darbi Boddy could easily say was slanderous, character defaming, and intentionally misleading. It is one thing to have an embarrassed mother of a girl who ended up in the Channel 5 story speaking at a school board meeting. It’s quite another giving school support behind it, and the way the board reacted was almost in relief that the news was talking about something else except what was in that email. 

The email was unbelievably bad, so to answer that question properly, I think it belongs in the hands of authorities to deal with quickly. But at this point, I am more interested to see how all the participants behave, which unfortunately goes well outside the government school of Lakota. So, I have not been eager to report all the details because on this one; it’s more important to see where all the insects go when the light is turned on. Turning the light on too fast will only scare them into hiding, where they stay all the time. One way or another, this email situation was much more significant and demanded that the light be turned on differently. I am more interested in seeing how everyone behaves rather than seeking justice for the few involved. Because what’s at stake is the heart of all public education and the mechanisms of the Liberal World Order. Every vestige of the Administrative State, of government built by the foundations of the Seven Liberal Studies, taught to us from our earliest memories, was at work. The media was at that school board meeting because they were looking for acknowledgment on the contents of that email and what management planned to do about it. Instead, the behavior revealed things about their collective strategy that was very surprising, to say the least. They were fine to sacrifice Darbi Boddy as a fellow school board member as they have been from the beginning with the defamatory rhetoric of a community member. But they were uncomfortably silent on the real matter that everyone was there to hear, and they certainly didn’t come to the defense of Darbi when such an accusation was leveled at her. They seemed to welcome it.

One of the ways you can trace the flow of water in underground caves is to pour colored dyes into the water upstream and see where those colors come out of the cave and into an outside creek or river—doing that gives the study an understanding of how water flows through the complicated crevasses and mazes within the cave that wouldn’t be obvious while crawling through the mud and tight corridors. Sometimes the best thing when you can see that crawling through underground caverns isn’t the best way to understand complicated problems; a different approach is needed. Well, the same thing is true in complex social and political issues that emerge in society. When you want to know the who, what, when, where, and how, you won’t find out that information by crawling in the mud with them. You need to see how information flows through their networks and how they react to it. And then, only then, will you understand the nature of the problem. When it comes to emergencies, I think everyone did what they needed to do. The email itself might be so unbelievable that it would turn out to be complete fiction. There are witnesses, and professional medical staff who are available to cross reference, so there are ways to validate the email. At that point, a small press conference about it would be appropriate, and a cautionary tale, no different than the mom who accused Darbi Boddy of being a school shooter would have transpired. After all, we are dealing with public figures here, and everyone involved should be able to endure a bit of scrutiny for the safety and security of the children in the schools of Lakota. If they are innocent of wrongdoing, they should get in front of a camera and say it. Then move on to the next thing.   But that’s not what we are seeing with this email. We see the lights being turned on; the cockroaches are scattering to their hiding places, only this time we are observing the actions with night vision, and can see the difference between light and dark, and can then trace where our bug problem really is, by first admitting that we have one.

So to all those concerned out there who are looking for justice and information, I would caution you to value information above all else. This is obviously a much larger problem that requires a complete understanding of what we are dealing with. So I have been in no rush to turn on the light for all the reasons mentioned. Rather, I would prefer to see how the colored water moves through the complicated politics of our community and to what walls it bounces off of so that a greater understanding of friends and foes can be established. Because when it comes to schools, their whole point is to provide a safe environment for kids. Schools are not a playground for the adults to make large wages and have an easy time making a living. If the adults involved are more interested in the politics of getting rid of school board members they don’t like or protecting a teacher’s union, then their priorities are all wrong, and they need an adjustment. If the media is more interested in the gossip of local politics rather than protecting children, then we have big problems. And if law enforcement is as corrupt as many people fear it is, then we’ll have to address that as well. But we will never know if we just turn on the light. We need to study the flow of information and see what people do with it. Even knowing how serious that information is, it only gives credibility to the data collected through observations made. It’s not acceptable just to have fears and speculations about the motives of the politics of government schools that are attached to tax dollars, radical leftist labor unions, and global political sentiment intent for the destruction of America. Facts and information are far more critical, and what we are learning is infinitely more valuable. So be cool and watch where the bugs run once the lights are turned on. And you’ll have your answers.

Why the CDC is Changing their Covid Guidelines: Backing away from the greatest scam in world history

So here is what’s up with the CDC guideline updates regarding Covid that has health experts up in arms with anger which they think there are still 400 deaths a day occurring due to the way that deaths are measured. The ridiculous belief of that bureaucratic health expert class was that they would rule the world if only they played along. But now, the rules are changing and getting much less restrictive, and they are upset about it. Since it’s obviously hurting Democrats in polling for the midterm election, the CDC has dramatically loosened the Covid guidelines to near irrelevancy, two years too late. But it’s at least a recognition of sanity that has long been overdue. Now people who have been exposed to Covid, regardless of vaccination status, no longer have to quarantine if they aren’t showing symptoms. Infected people who choose to use rapid tests can end their isolation after day five, even if they still test positive. People are no longer recommended to stay 6 feet away from others to avoid infection. And it’s important to know, which has always been the case, that the CDC does not have legislative power over any of our lives. What they have are “guidelines,” not laws. We never had to do what they said, we never had to shut down our society the way we did, and we never had to let people die in isolation the way we did. As it has turned out, far more than 400 people a day around the world have died or been harmed with Covid restrictions and the vaccines we took to avoid it than ever actually died of the actual virus that was made by world governments in a lab in China and distributed to the world to conduct political change in 2020 to essentially steal the American election and give it to Joe Biden. That’s what Covid was really about, and now after two years, the CDC is finally trying to fade into the background, only because they have damaged the Democrat party to such a large extent. 

But its more than any of that now, after a few years of public policy meant to give more power to mindless bureaucrats in health care, the plan that was always in the back of their minds including in 2010 when Nancy Pelosi was pushing through Obamacare, the take over of a massive sector of the American economy by government for mysterious reasons, now you see what they had in mind. Now there is plenty of history of crime that the government has gotten itself involved in and plenty of books that have hit the market that have laid out the case against the health officials who abused their power with Covid. Gone is the idea of the nice local doctor who was looking out for our health, and now that image has been replaced by a white-coated tyrant who is just another representative of big government tyranny intent to rule every aspect of our lives with an abuse of authority only conceived in the worst of dystopian novels from the past. There have been a lot of good books on the subject, specifically The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert Kennedy, which is fantastic. You can read that book and now see significant court cases prosecuting the CDC and all its government doctors. They knowingly caused deaths and destroyed people’s lives for malicious reasons, and the cases are spelled out in crayon in that Kennedy book. Then there is Naomi Wolf’s book, The Bodies of Others which establishes the truth of what Covid was; it was a connection to The Great Reset for Klaus Schwab’s takeover of the entire world economy. But coming up in the last quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023 are some very good books that are going to seal the deal on Covid and all the corrupt minds behind it. And with a new congress just elected, there will be hearings to recapture public trust, and many in the CDC will be punished, to say it mildly. That is why the CDC has suddenly changed tune. Fear due to their implication in the crime that affected us all.

I have been talking more lately about the Masons and the many characters who work behind the scenes, such as the trade guilds of Europe who are behind the Desecrators of Davos, who often tamper with political tides around the world to suit their own wants and needs. We know from history that the Masons were involved in the American and French revolutions. They were also behind the Russian Revolution, Marx was a Mason, and their goal over several hundred years of political activism was to bring down the monarchies of Europe and free people from their perspective into a new kind of global republic, one that Plato envisioned based on Egyptian society where philosopher-kings ruled everyone with a kind fist, not the fist of a monarch. That same Masonic movement carried communism down into China and Southeast Asia, chronicled in Claire Lee Chennault’s great book Way of the Fighter. It was clear that FDR then Truman wanted China to be taken over by the communist party, the same way Russia was. Nixon and Kissinger would a few years later give China a seat at the table in world trade, and now we see what the plan always was as China threatens to take over the world run by communism with the winds of change blown on by the Masons behind political movements around the world over the last 300 years. It’s in knowing that history that I wasn’t suckered into thinking Covid was anything but a weapon of terror used by those same old forces to help Klaus Schwab and his Great Reset from the very beginning. Bill Gates was caught funding much of the operation and has now been put into these books with the proof. 

It is wondered why none of these people have gone to jail yet for these crimes against humanity because they control the law. Bill Gates gives a lot of money to progressive groups, and to keep that money flowing; people are willing to break the law to get it. That is why George Soros, a known hostile agent of American ideas, continues to be a menace in the light of day. People want his money. We had seen before Covid came along a new kind of military force in the world, and they work behind the scenes in finance and trade. When Trump as president, threatened that Liberal World Order that had been nurtured along by the Freemason movement over centuries, they weren’t about to have him destroy all their hard work toward globalism, toward the utopian idea of a one-world government that they controlled for the perceived benefit of mankind. So they took him out, and they used China to do it. China owes its entire existence to these ghostly characters behind the political scenes, so they complied and let China loose upon the world to essentially take out the Trump presidency in an election year and give Klaus Schwab his Great Reset now rather than later. Schwab already had his book ready to print just as the world was learning about all the health takeover that the World Health Organization had imposed on the CDC to lock us all in our homes and keep us separated to stop the spread of a virus they created to change the politics of the world. You don’t have to take my word for it; it’s all in a series of books by authors who have done the research. Now, knowing the intent of these global criminals, it’s time for us to do something about it. We have the benefit of hindsight, and it’s time to start making people pay for the greatest crimes in American history. That is why the CDC changed its guidelines and is suddenly trying to drift into the background. And that is the only reason why.

Aaron Rodgers and Ayahuasca: The way liberalism hides behind ancient religions and masks of goodness

As if the raiding of President Trump’s home wasn’t enough, or the collapse of the global economy, the perverts who run public education and are a far greater menace to children than the potential danger of school shooters, or the purposeful deaths created by government in reaction to the government creation of Covid, then the mismanagement of it, the Aaron Rodgers story about taking Ayahuasca during a trip to Peru might not seem like such a big deal. But really, it is. It shows the undercurrent of a massive, global sentiment toward drug use to fulfill the religious needs of globalists and their reverence to mother earth worship and ancient taboos meant to control mass society. I have only said, all of my long life, that any government that is permissive to drug use is one that wants to dumb down its citizens so they are easier to control and less of a threat to their eventual power. That is certainly the case with the latest Ayahuasca drug cult that has been emerging for a while now, not just in global cultures but specifically in America. I would point to musical groups like The Doors as part of that ceremonial tribalism that had in its always intentions worship of the dualist goddess cults that were constantly plaguing the earth with stupidity and mayhem. The use of psychedelics to “open” the mind to new experiences is not a new thing, and I do subscribe to the current theory that it was through plant-based psychedelic diets that caused mankind’s consciousness to expand into what we see today, something capable of creation in mimicking and possibly even surpassing what was viewed in the shamanic visions induced through various drugs. Ayahuasca is a plant-based brew that is specific to the Amazon rainforests and has been used by shamans there for thousands of years to communicate with what they call the “dead.” So along comes aimless Aaron Rodgers, a guy who is at midlife without children, even without a wife, searching for meaning. So he went like a lot of people do in his condition to Peru and sought out the advice of a shaman, and what he learned was the advice of an undercurrent religion to which the United Nations is dedicated entirely, the worship of the earth and understanding that nature has dominion over mankind, not the other way around as it says to us in the Book of Genesis. 

Liberalism has always come to us disguised in music, movies, drugs, and essentially all aspects of artistic culture. It never announces itself as a religion, but once you peel back the layers of all secret societies which operate in the background of our culture, specifically politics, it is then discovered the old religion of dualism, which essentially states that all things in the material world are evil. The only good thing is to sacrifice yourself to the spirit world and live for everlasting life, life without a body. That means that all things created in life, regarding material flesh, wives, children, houses, things that the American Constitution protects, are to be discarded in favor of a spiritual life oblivious to material comforts. This is where the dumb ideas of fasting come from: living a life of celibacy and material denial in service to religious objectives. But under all that sacrifice is the duelist notion of living as plants do; when they die, their seed reproduces and spawns again. If you cut off the limbs of a tree, it grows back. And in that way, nature represents everlasting life and is the most essential thing in the world to work for. That is what Pablo Amaringo would say, the famous Peruvian shaman who has been celebrated around the world for his fantastic art regarding his Ayahuasca visions. For this reason, I have been talking about this culture for a while now, well before Aaron Rodgers announced his experiences at the start of the 2022 football season in using it to secure his MVP title the year before. 

I kind of like Aaron Rodgers; I know he’s a reader and is thoughtful about things, at least for the athletic jock types. He’s unusually intelligent. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know when he is being played by the undercurrents of mass society in general. He is very much plugged into the corporate world through his many endorsements, and he got himself into a little trouble last year when he stood up to the NFL push to mandate vaccines. In the way things work, this Ayahuasca thing is a bone thrown toward the globalists because they love the idea that a popular media figure like Rodgers is promoting drug use for psychological alignment and mental health. That is music to their ears. And the fact that liberalism has seeped into Aaron Rogers’ life in many ways can be seen in his new girlfriend, Blu of Earth. They now have matching tattoos that have all the symbols of dualism contained in it on their forearms. What they call a spiritual journey is essentially the same dualist religions that have been with the world since the beginning of time and are certainly pushbacks against the latest religious invention of material culture as we know of it in Christianity and god giving men dominion over the earth and everything on it. 

We know that the goal of the KGB when they were planting seeds of destruction in American culture through our universities in the 40s and 50s was to create a society not of warring cowboys and gunslingers, as America was at the time, but a bunch of tree-hugging hippies smoking dope, taking LSD to find themselves, and to embrace love, not war. That is, of course, what the enemy would love. In the modern context, it makes the globalists very happy to see a great warrior of America, an American football player talking about seeking love in his life and living peacefully with existence. And from Aaron Rodgers’ perspective, I’m sure the pressures of performance on television week in and week out have their own challenges, and managing that pressure requires thinking outside the box. When you don’t have a wife or kids, and those parts of your life feel like they are leaving you behind, of course, it’s easy to find meaning in earth worship and ancient religions that speak against materialism and spiritual fulfillment. The caution should come from any culture in knowing what the undercurrents are to the sentiment, the reason that Ayahuasca is being suddenly shown as a solution to the world’s problems. I personally think there are scientific benefits to Ayahuasca and that what it does is benefit the human brain in pulling off the restrictor plates in the visual spectrum that we currently have. But I don’t think it’s a miracle drug or the great boon of existence. Instead, the benefit is in seeing the influences on mankind that often hide in the shadows. We misdiagnose them as “spirit guides” when they are likely demons, “tricksters,” whispers of doom and destruction who use famous celebrities to spread their message of wickedness and destruction behind presentations of peace and love. Ayahuasca can allow us to see those maniacal creatures and to deal with them. But the danger is in thinking they are here to help us. And behind the religious intentions of globalists, this is their ultimate plan, to submit all of mankind to the gods of nature and to destroy the materialist concepts of Christianity forever. It’s a plan with all the elements of evil we might fear and then some.

Defending Alex Jones: The stageplay that hides the many crimes of the Administrative State

No matter what someone might think of Alex Jones and his Infowars broadcasts, he continues to be the example that the administrative state uses to enforce their vision for policy control. We saw it clearly when he was banned from YouTube a number of years ago. What followed after that was shocking to many, but Alex Jones saw the strategy first. And of course, in this crazy trial where supposedly Sandy Hook victims from that terrible school shooting are allowed to seek financial compensation for how they feel about what Alex Jones said about the case, which was essentially that it was a school shooting scripted by government characters designed to advance changes in social sentiment toward guns. For that belief and his broadcast of it to others, we are supposed to clap and cheer that the court and jury are awarding to those victims millions and millions of dollars of confiscated wealth from Jones as punishment for not believing in the official narrative issued by the government about the tragedy of the story. It’s a clear violation of 1st Amendment protections, but the calculation is that nobody in their right mind would defend Alex Jones for his preposterously inflated statements. Everyone, including Jones, can agree that Sandy Hook was a tragic school shooting. But the beliefs of what should happen as a result of that school shooting have been wide-ranging, and obviously, the characters who are behind the school shooting with direct complicity needed a certain kind of narrative to hit the public so that control of that public can be maintained, unimpeded by people like Jones.

Like many people who find themselves in these crooked courts these days, I like Alex Jones. I think his show is valuable in asking questions that should be asked in a free society. But obviously, from the administrative state perspective, and this is undoubtedly the case with Warroom with Steve Bannon as well, questioning authority was never in the plan of these new globalist insurgents. I say new because Americans aren’t very familiar with them. Up until Covid came along, Americans only knew about these types of people from Alex Jones broadcasts, and I would say without insulting him that Jones is just an ordinary guy uniquely looking at the world and asking questions the way a typical person who attends demolition derbies, and flea markets might. Alex Jones represents how many people think about things, which is the key to his success over the years. That is also why he’s a target because the administrative state wants to show that Alex Jones can be taken down, and so can anybody else.   The whole point of the trial, which is the front page news of every outlet in the world presently, is to demonstrate that a rigged court could destroy Jones and his Infowars, and there was nothing that could be done about it. Yet when Jones talks about the court being rigged, the deck is so stacked against him that much of what he says comes out sounding like a lunatic. Because nobody can coordinate the way he suggests, people just aren’t that smart. Jones always misses the root cause of the conspiracies because he often gets soaked up in what happens in the world, not so much in why. But because of this case, I think it’s probably time to get into the details of who these administrative state people really are and why they are so dangerous. And how America was formed to eliminate them from the world stage. 

Alex Jones often touches on many of these demonic and cryptic characters, and his analysis can be funny, entertaining, and boisterously over the top. I enjoy his broadcasts, but they often do not get to the details I like to deal with. But if he were like that, the show’s entertainment value would disappear, and he would not be as popular to the masses as he is. I often think of things as a stage play, and the media, our courts, and our political order are presented to us in a way that we might attend a play. What happened on that stage, which was clearly the narrative of the court case against Alex Jones, was the crucifixion and complete destruction of a leading figure who used the First Amendment to resist the power of the global administrative state. But what makes that play work are the ticket takers, the ushers, the stagehands behind the curtain, and the costume makers; they all play a part behind the scenes to make that show on stage happen. And we are only supposed to be watching the stage, the things they want us to look at. But if you really want to understand the play you are watching and to determine its quality, then you have to look at everything, including what’s behind the stage, to the real essence of the show. Alex Jones has made his living talking about the things that are backstage while people are watching him on stage. Hearing him talk about it is one thing, but seeing it and understanding it is much harder because what he’s talking about is concealed from the public’s view. The media is the curtain, and the real elements that keep the play alive are concealed there.

The court proceeding’s primary goal in the Alex Jones case was essential to ignore the American concept of free speech, to make a person liable for other people’s feelings. They were to confiscate the wealth from Jones in much the same way that the inquisition in Europe used to against enemies of the court for precisely the same reasons. It’s a show of power that the court doesn’t deserve to have, and America was formed to destroy in the world. And here it is in our courts, hiding behind victims of a terrible school shooting for the purpose that the school shooting occurred. The question about what motives created the shooting is not discussed, and for having a theory about what those might be and how insensitive they were to the victims is the point of the massacre, to establish case law that can then be applied to many more cases in the future. If Jones can go down for the opinions of others, then the door is opened for many other issues over much more minor infractions. And because Jones is such a wild figure, most of the people in the best positions to defend him are silent because they don’t want to be tagged with a “conspiracy” title next to their names. So they remain hidden from the conflict without opinion so to avoid the disaster of affiliation. And in that way, the courts are just as Alex said they were; it was a coordinated attack. Only the participants aren’t exactly conscious of it. Instead, they know their job in putting on the play; they learned how to play their parts in the show during their many years of public schooling and college. So they often do those jobs without being told and, in that way, are complicit. The evil isn’t conducted in the way we are trained to see it in movies and books; the narrative is not on the stage; it’s off behind the curtain. Alex stands on the stage like a maniac and talks about how evil it is just outside of everyone’s vision. But, unfortunately, people only see Jones, under the lights and with the microphone talking about it. And thus, that is how the show goes on and why Alex Jones is being isolated and destroyed by those invisible hands who have always run the administrative state. 

I think Alex Jones will be fine. He could do his show in the back of a car if he wanted. He could run Infowars as a guerrilla operation with a limited staff, so his show will go on. But what we have learned from his trial is another matter. That administrative state has shown itself in ways that have people curious about what’s happening behind the scenes, and they may be ready to hear it. And for that, I think I can help show them around, and will.

What ‘Bob’s Burgers’ says about American Society: What people will do to have a good family

At face value, it would be one of those strange mysteries. But when you dig into the issue a bit, it makes a lot of sense and says a lot about what kind of society we really are as Americans. I’ll admit, I was perplexed as to why any studio would produce a Bob’s Burgers theatrical release. With so many streaming services that are out there these days, why would anybody make a movie of the somewhat popular cartoon on Fox called Bob’s Burgers, which is a version of the typical animated formula that they have made so popular over the years with other offerings like The Simpsons, and Family Guy? I’m not too fond of Bob on Bob’s Burgers; I think of him as a loser. He’s not very ambitious; as a dad, he’s perpetually broke. He runs a little New England burger place in a resort town, and he can barely rub two pennies together.

Most of the episodes are about the problems they have as a family because they never have enough money to do things. And of course, my famous saying to people complaining about not having enough money is just to work and make more. Especially in America, if you want money, you can have it. You may not make all the money you want in 8 hours of work. Forty hours a week may not be enough; you might have to work 80. When I was raising a family, I have told the stories of only having one car, and I rode a bicycle 25 miles a day, so my wife could have the car for the kids and worked two full-time jobs to make the money we needed as a family. So, I can’t relate to Bob in Bob’s Burgers, and I find it odd that young people like the show so much. But, apparently, they do. Enough so that they made a theatrical movie release this year as something they thought was justifiable. 

I also had a unique experience while attending various comic cons with my daughter, an outstanding illustrator who does exhibitions of her work at those types of events. As I have said, it’s interesting to watch people cosplay at comic cons, the kind of outfits they want to dress up in, and invest so much of their time to bring characters they enjoy to life in some way. I can understand the various Star Wars characters and those from the Marvel movies. Those are action movies that make you feel good when leaving the movie theater in some way, so it makes sense that people would want to dress up as those characters during Halloween and at comic cons. Bringing fantasy to life is a specific function of the human imagination, a conceptual vehicle that expresses inner values that manifest in mythological impressions during social exchanges. Dressing up as a favorite character is a way to vote for the kind of values that you see in pop culture. Imitation is the ultimate compliment. But while I was at these events, I was just a little shocked to see young people dressing up as characters from Bob’s Burgers, which is hard because they are all cartoons. It’s not easy to bring a cartoon character to life, yet people did, and some were really good costumes. Why? I’ve watched many episodes of Bob’s Burgers, and I just don’t enjoy the show that much. For me, it’s often filler in the background while I’m doing five or six other things. I occasionally watch it because I like the colors of cartoons. But I can’t relate to the characters much at all. 

Oddly enough, my wife likes Bob’s Burgers a lot. I’d say it’s her favorite show, so this problem has been something I’ve been thinking about for a while. Yet, in working to understand the current political sentiment of our mass society, I felt something was going on with Bob’s Burgers that was worth noticing, significantly if film executives believed that a theatrical release of a subpar cartoon series on Fox justified its own movie. So the one thing that really jumps out about Bob’s Burgers that is likable is that all the family members like each other. Bob, his wife, and his three children all live in a little dump of an apartment, yet they don’t act like a bunch of losers who are waiting in line with a bottle of booze to buy lottery tickets. They work hard for the money they make and love each other as a family while running the family burger business. Bob is always a few cents short of whatever the family needs, but his wife never talks about leaving him for a better life with a more ambitious lover. The kids are just happy to have mom and dad together in the house. The brothers and sisters aren’t out to kill each other; they go on many neighborhood adventures and solve problems like rational people. They are a very “traditional” family. 

And that’s what it is with Bob’s Burgers; like many of the other Fox primetime cartoons, they all have in common a mom and a dad in the home who love each other. That is certainly the case with Family Guy, a very progressive show that features a family that stays together. There aren’t step-parents and step-children in these cartoons. They are all very traditional. Other animated shows have tried to make it with more progressive storylines, but they always fail. The ones that stick around over the years are the cartoons that feature traditional family settings. The Simpsons have been on for decades now, a very long time. And yet, with many hundreds of storylines, Homer and his wife Marge still love each other and work through marital problems together in a way that never ends in divorce or a family breakup.   And that was the key to this Bob’s Burgers mystery. Here was a family on an animated show with many problems, and they seemed limited in their ability to solve those problems. But, they enjoy each other as a family. You don’t see Bob running around on the town to cheat on his wife. Or running away from the attention that the kids obviously want from him. He’s a good dad, even if he’s unambitious socially. And his family loves him for it. Obviously, the audiences who can’t say the same about their own families have found a reliable father figure in Bob’s Burgers. In Bob’s Burgers, they see the family they always wanted and never had in the fictional settings. And it has such an impact on them that they even dress up as the characters in cosplay. It says a lot about the true state of our society when those types of fictional stories indicate what people really feel inside. Their vote for the type of entertainment they wish to enjoy says what all people really crave outside of political theater. Most people would give up a lot to have a family like Bob’s Burgers, where at least mom and dad loved each other, and their siblings worked together to help make the family a family. In a world full of disappointments, at least Bob and his animated television family were willing to fight through disappointments for the key ingredient to all happy societies, a good family that might not have a lot of money, but at least they had what all humans crave, a genuine love for each other. And that is worth noting and something that should give us all hope for the future.
