The Legal Liability of the Government on E.O. 14042: When our quality of business life decreases, the Biden administration is directly to blame

The Government is Liable for Business Losses Due to their Bad Decisions

Not many people, including most lawyers, have had time to break down Joe Biden’s ridiculously unconstitutional Executive Order 14042, which my nickname for it is 4th down and 1.  It’s about as serious as a football team that is on 4th down, and they only need 1 yard for a conversion, so they perform a hard count hoping to draw the other team offsides and get a five-yard penalty.  They have no intention to throw the ball or run a play, and they hope that in such a way, they can trick their opposition into giving them some free yards on the down and distance because the government has no right even to issue Executive Order 14042.  It is all a bluff to see how much the government can trick people into getting vaccinated off a virus that global conspirators created in a Wuhan lab to remove an American president from office.  Also, there is further trouble from the Biden administration. As it looks now, based on the early auditing process, the Biden presidency was illegal and will have to be undone.  Biden can’t issue tissue paper because it was the media that called the election for him.  States not ever having to face a challenge in the certification process didn’t know what to do.  Mike Pence called Dan Quayle of all people for legal advice on what to do on January 6th.  Looking back, the states should have taken care of certifying their election because massive voter fraud under cover of covid is what put Biden in the White House.  He was not elected by the people but by laziness, deception, and trickery.   So there are lots and lots of problems with Biden’s E.O. 14042.  Lots and lots and more lots, legally, ethically, and historically. 

But what’s fascinating about the whole thing is just how stupid the government is as an institutional entity under the Biden administration and its waves of progressive administrators.  Most of the focus of the Biden vaccine mandate has been spent on the clause forcing any company with more than 100 employees to comply.  Yet, the biggest and most challenging hit came to federal employees in some way or another and all their sub-tier contractors.  If you even smell the work for which the federal government touches, the vaccine mandate is a real threat. There is no short-term legal answer to presenting terrible problems for most employers in the United States.  Recently the FAR flow downs have been passed down the supply chains, and we now have some idea what the federal government was thinking and what they signed up for.  There is a very reckless clause in the FAR that instructs employers what the method of compliance will be, which puts the burden of massive failure squarely on the federal government’s back, which is worth a logical discussion. 

Nestled a few paragraphs down from the FAR I saw from NASA is a section that states, “These safeguards will decrease the spread of Covid-19, which will, in turn, decrease worker absences, reduce labor costs, and improve the efficiency of contractors and subcontractors performing work for the Federal Government.” So there it is, and there is a lot wrong in those few little sentences that set up the federal government for a load of lawsuits.  First of all, there are declarative statements about Covid as a whole.  Colin Powell just died the other day of Covid, or so they say.  Yet, he was vaccinated.  Getting a vaccination is not a protection from Covid 19, so the government lied in their reasoning.  As of the time of the writing, they would have known they were lying as well.  So that’s a problem.  But worse than that, the government states that the purpose of the vaccination mandate is to keep schedules to the Federal Government. By reducing people from getting sick from Covid, they will help improve attendance. 

As we know, as a direct result of the Covid vaccine, employers have had to take on the burden of government office instead of focusing on their core competencies and have turned their human resource departments into compliance centers for enforcement.  The government pushed companies to do what they had no legal right to do, which is why I said that this is a bluff similar to football on a 4th and 1.  In reaction, instead of people jumping offsides as the government hoped, people have dug in, and some, enough to cause significant problems, have taken themselves out of the employment game.  This has been most noticeable in the news over seaport supply chains and Southwest Airlines.  Employees are just refusing to be told to get the shot.  Not all employees, but anywhere around 7 to 10% is enough to screw up companies’ business models and slow them down to a crawl, which has clogged up supply chains everywhere.  The government has once again cost millions of dollars in damage to companies with their interference and activism.  And those losses should be recoverable as damages by the government because of how the FAR was written.  The intention of the federal government was just the opposite, the way they sold it.  It was supposed to reduce lost time action by employees and help stabilize the supply chain due to Covid call-offs.  Oops.  

Even if all this Covid stuff is just a cover story for hiding election fraud, or the results of a completely incompetent administration trying to implement United Nations Marxism into America through change state strategy, the responsibility for the failure still falls on the federal government.  The people, employers, and employees did nothing to deserve this disaster; it’s all the federal government.  Biden got himself in trouble with poll numbers; he wanted to be a tough guy with this Covid vaccine mandate and hope to draw companies offsides.  Many of them were hungry to comply, but the workers refused to play along, and now the combination of efforts has torpedoed the American economy. I can’t wait for that jobs report in October and November; Joe Biden should enjoy those.  But he only has himself to blame.  Yet when people wonder why things are getting so bad out there and why they are much worse under the Biden administration as opposed to Trump, they forget about politics, look at the results between the two presidents, and everything becomes obvious.

The Biden Marxism and authoritarian approach have killed any recovery that was possible coming out of Covid lockdowns, which of course, has never been adequately admitted to.  The real question is, why did we have Covid in the first place?  Why was the NIH funding it, and why isn’t Dr. Fauci in jail?  But the mistakes that have cascaded off Covid have been disastrous.  The Trump administration did a good job even under detrimental conditions.  The Biden people, they can’t get out of their own way.   The Biden vaccine mandate for them was all about testing to see if they could get away with a massive overreach of the American constitution.  But now, they have crippled their own recovery.  It hurts us all, but the blame is squarely on the Biden government.  Some of this has, of course, been on purpose.  But the results of E.O. 14042 have been historically disastrous.  History will never forget the intent that was shown by the government and the reaction by the public.  Americans are not compliant Chinese.  We weren’t going to jump offsides and give the government a free first down.  And because we didn’t, the government is left holding all the losses, and we will pin it on them, forever.

Lori’s Roadhouse in West Chester: Mark Welch, the Superstar of Politics

Government is Best when it Gets out of the Way

As I listened to Mark Welch speak at a special fundraiser preview event at the new honky-tonk in West Chester called Lori’s Roadhouse, I couldn’t help but think that government is good, at least in West Chester.  When I say honky-tonk, I’m not talking about the old days of Gilley’s in Pasadena, Texas, where Urban Cowboy took place.  This place in West Chester is more like the modern Gilley’s in Las Vegas, very nicely put together luxuriously.  There is nothing cheap about it; it’s an ample space to host very large national talent for concerts. It’s something special for the Cincinnati area, and it’s great to see it located in West Chester, Ohio.  It’s not by accident.  The endeavor is a combination of great government that pushed out of the way as much nonsense as possible so that the dream of Greg and Lori Fisher could put all their great efforts into creating such a wonderful venue. I’ve been to places like Lori’s Roadhouse in parts of the country far away from Cincinnati.  But the moment I stepped into Mark’s fundraiser and saw what the owners were up to, I was enchanted.  There wasn’t a better way to show why Mark Welch should be re-elected as trustee of West Chester.  It’s not so much what an elected official can do for a project like Lori’s Roadhouse, but what kind of nonsense Mark can remove from the Fishers to let their creative input do the great work of creating such a wonderful place. 

Mark Welch and one of the owners, Lori Fisher herself

I view business as a creative enterprise, and I deeply respect people who go out on a limb and build new things that contribute to an economy.  Something like Lori’s Roadhouse is one of those things that adds to the many other things there are to do in West Chester.  There are so many options, and a lot of the reason is that the government has been small enough not to crush the hopes and dreams of entrepreneurs along the way.  It is hard enough to come up with an idea and then fund it with seed money.  It’s quite another to deal with politicians and other bureaucrats who embed themselves into the system to make a molehill of regulation into mountains for their benefit.  Usually, projects like Lori’s Roadhouse would be crushed before a business plan could ever be conducted because of politics.  I can think of hundreds, if not thousands of places around the country where a place like Lori’s Roadhouse would do well.  But, the politics of those areas would prohibit the dream from becoming a reality.

I had a chance to talk to Lori and her husband Greg Fisher quite a lot which was nice.  It was busy at the fundraiser, and I wasn’t sure if I’d get the chance.  As it turned out, Lori is the perfect front lady for such a place. She’s very friendly and optimistic, a fun personality which a place like that needs.  She told me she usually likes to work behind the scenes, but I can see why her name is on the place.  It deserves to have her name on the place.  Then there is her husband Greg, who had just spent months and months working out every little detail of this spectacular venue.  The food was great.  The bar was full.  The bathrooms are designed to still look good after lots and lots of drinking.  There is plenty of space for the men and women to have their dignity and get back to the action of live country music, a sports bar setting in much of the place, but a vast stage and dance hall area complete with VIP booths.  It was all top class, and the acoustics were fabulous as personally supervised by Greg.  As he ran down the list of all the elements of the place, it was apparent, he had a genuine love for the work, and I was happy to see it. That’s where someone like Mark Welch comes into these kinds of things.  Mark had worked in the background ever so subtly to help take away the burden of government from the Fishers so they could focus on the important stuff. Like securing the millions of dollars a place like that would cost and building a reputation that would bring in the big acts from all over the country.  A modern Gilley’s, but I would say better and with more class.  Something specific to West Chester. 

Lori and her Husband Greg Fisher, a dream come true in West Chester

TC Rogers was there; he is one of the commissioners of Butler County, where some of the legacy zoning issues made the project hard to get moving.  But at least West Chester didn’t do as other places do and compound the problem.  There were a lot of big-name politicians at Mark’s event, which was a good way to open a good American testament to goodness that Lori’s Roadhouse was offering.  It was undoubtedly a place anybody could enjoy, but country music, big leather boots, and cowboy hats draw a certain kind of political flavor, and it was on full display.  I had just returned from Jackson, Wyoming, where they have a similar high-class flair to their country background.  They have some very classy honky-tonk types of places there, but Lori’s Roadhouse was far better.  It looked and felt like something right out of Music City, Nashville.  It was unapologetically American for sure.  It had the kind of swagger that I had just been bragging about that I saw at a Cody, Wyoming rodeo.  They were similar in their boot-kicking display of Americana and a tip of the cowboy hat to great family tradition. 

Lori’s Roadhouse in West Chester, a super cool place of Americana and family friendly entertainment
Mark Welch Gets It! No Income Tax!!!!!

The community will have an option not just for the concerts but for a place to stop by after work, have a few drinks, and talk to people in the community; Lori’s Roadhouse will be a real treasure.  It’s not fair to give Mark so much credit because the Fishers did all the work along with their crews.  But I have to give Mark and the trustees credit for not getting in the way, and Mark specifically for helping where he could make the process of dealing with the government not such a challenging endeavor.  I had to smile a bit to myself as I listened to Greg and Lori talk about their new place because I have heard so many hundreds of stories over the years from people who never get things like this launched into reality.  And they had managed to do it. Usually, what ends up happening is the life gets sucked out of a project like this by all the rules and regulations of government.  It’s not often where a dream comes close to the original vision, and in the case of Lori’s Roadhouse, it’s easy to see the dream of the owners as they intended it to be, and that is the result of good government that knows when to help and when to get out of the way.  Often the skill of politicians is in knowing when not to be part of the problem, but in being part of the solution.  And when they figure that much out, great things like Lori’s Roadhouse happens.  And I am very excited about the results.

The Progressive Labor Union, LEA endorses Trent Emeneker: Hoping to slide a liberal under the door for West Chester Trustee

The LEA Endorses Trent Emeneker

At this point, it’s pretty well known that the challenger for the West Chester trustee seat in Butler County, Ohio, Trent Emeneker, is not a conservative.  He has stated that he’s a registered Republican. Still, much of what he talks about, like wanting to turn West Chester into a big bureaucratic city full of city council positions and other nonsense, is excessively liberal.  It didn’t help that he did a meet and greet at Liberty Center’s AC Hotel hosted by an activist Democrat.  So Trent has loads of problems even before a single-yard sign was ever put into the ground.  But as if all that were not enough, the LEA (Lakota Education Association) has endorsed Trent, which is essentially the kiss of death in Butler County.  The LEA, of course, is the ultra-progressive labor union that runs the Lakota school system.  They work under the umbrella of the Ohio Education Association, and ultimately the National Education Association, which everyone knows by now are essentially PAC groups for Democrats and the advancement of progressive causes.  Those not sure what progressive causes are responsible for should know that they are encouraging sex education in early grade school and transsexual bathrooms.  I would go as far as to say that it is an evil organization of radical politics intent on the destruction of the United States.  But judge for yourself.  What matters is that they have endorsed Trent Emeneker and hope to squeak him under the door in an off-year race that typically has low voter turnout. 

There is nothing good that comes out of the LEA.  They essentially protect bad teachers from being fired and lobby to pay them too much money to do it.  They are wholly committed to the destruction of America as we know it.  They collect money from their union dues and apply it directly to Democrats nationwide.  If you can think of something terrible about government schools, and I can think of a lot, the root cause of the trouble goes back to teacher unions, especially the NEA.  So long as they exist and have a footprint of any kind in our schools with our children, there is no hope of making those schools better.  People understand that more now than they did even a few years ago.  At Lakota, there is an opportunity to vote for new school board members to replace the current ones, which might stand against these teacher unions better than we’ve had in the past.  Usually, there is no defense on the school board.  The LEA essentially runs everything, including putting their candidates on the board as they are trying again this year with Kelley Casper, Michael Pearl, and Doug Horton.  There are finally options this year with actual Republican endorsed candidates.  Many people are running, so voter turnout will have to be high to defeat the incumbent’s LEA has also endorsed.  So we’ll see if voters take advantage of this opportunity with great voter turnout on election day, November 2nd

The LEA endorses Trent Emeneker for West Chester Trustee

It is just that kind of low voter turnout that the LEA hopes push the liberal Trent Emeneker into a West Chester Trustee seat.  They usually have their activists who always show up to vote and preserve their intent to destroy America.  So Republican voters will have to show up and defend themselves to keep that from happening.  But as to Trent’s intent, there is no doubt about it now that the LEA has endorsed him on their web page.  When you have the LEA behind you, you know that a vast evil is not far behind.  Everything the LEA does is rooted in some destruction for the American way of life and the families that make the country great.  Behind all teacher union activities are actions intended to attack family and its institution to a progressive need.  Suppose there are members of the LEA who call themselves Republicans and just go along for the great six-figure paycheck at Lakota. In that case, they are doing like all RINOs do, help evil get a foothold into our lives with the death whisper of compliance which is silently killing our country as we speak.  Those teachers in the LEA are just as bad as the purple-headed progressives advocating gay rights, critical race theory, and globalism by saying nothing and letting evil have its way in the world. 

Trent has tried to sell himself as an old military guy hoping that blind allegiance to service might make people ignore his obvious liberalism.  His biggest complaint about the current West Chester trustees is spending a few million dollars on landscaping for the new Union Center exchange.  He considers that fiscal irresponsibility.  Yet West Chester is operating in the black, which is how it should be, and considering the amount of GDP produced at that highway exit, the landscaping costs are easily justified.  Oddly enough, at a recent debate where Trent tried to make an issue of this cost, it was Lee Wong who best slapped him down for it.  Now everyone knows I’m not a huge Lee Wong fan, one of the current trustees.  But next to Trent Emeneker, Lee sounds like Donald Trump.  Lee explained well the need for the landscaping in a very Trump-like way.  Union Center in West Chester is one of the premier spots in the entire country for economic activity.  I would put the GDP moving through that exit among the top in the country.  There is nothing wrong with having some nice flowers there to greet the mass commerce that occurs.   Of course, nobody talks about that the LEA is against all capitalist activity as they are socialists and communists in their origins.  They are “the vote red for ed” types. The red is the red flag of communism, so for Trent to attack a few flowers when Lakota is bleeding hundreds of millions of dollars into these LEA employees advocating against family values, small government ideas, and the promotion of the religion of climate change, Trent proves he’s just a stooge for the LEA liberalism and not interested in fiscal responsibility.  If he indeed were, the LEA would never endorse him because all they want is a run-away wallet with no limit on the credit card. 

So remember as you vote that the LEA endorsed Trent Emeneker.  I don’t think it will change anything.  The same several thousand people who will vote to keep the current big spenders on the Lakota school board will vote for Trent as a trustee.  But there are a lot more Republicans in Butler County than Democrats.  It will all come down to voter turnout.  If you don’t want to see more LEA liberalism contaminating our community, then be sure to get out on election night and vote. Don’t just show up and vote for Trump or the mid-terms.  Vote now and for the same reasons, defend your turf from these radical progressives and their plans of doom for our children.  And know when you vote that Trent Emeneker is one of them.  The LEA does not endorse Republicans, not real ones.  They are out to destroy conservative politics so they would never put their name next to anybody who won’t help them do just that.  Trent is a big government guy, which is why they want him.  But, if you show up to vote, you can stop their plans.  So, could you not take it for granted?  The time for action is coming up; make sure you are part of the solution.

Looks Like its Time to Bring Back Hanging: We have a criminal government, and we must meet it in the street

Maybe its Time to Bring Back Hanging

A recurring theme of American westerns is the temptation of the domestic woman to coax a man not to meet evil in the street and right wrongs but to stay safe and keep the doors shut.  To hide in the bosom of a woman in trade for sexual security replacing mother as the overseer of what’s good in the world.  Of course, the man must do what they must and meet evil in the street and conquer it, then return home to the woman for forgiveness, which usually he gets.  The point to the stories is that women are the guardians to domestic bliss and the love of home and family, but that the threats to those wonderful things come from outside sources, and sometimes to eliminate them, the hero must go and throw all concerns for danger aside and do what has to be done.  That theme was particularly strong in Clint Eastwood’s Pale Rider from 1986.  Sure, women had the right to vote long-established. At that time, women were in the workplace sharing breadwinning activities, tricked by the government to become taxpayers serving the government rather than guardians of the house and protecting the children from the villainy of government.  But that’s a story for another time.  Presently we are faced with the trend of great evil, and it’s time to face it down in the street and figure out what to do about it.  In the Pale Rider theme, two women were tempting Clint Eastwood to stay in the house and live happily ever after with them, hoping to ignore the evils of the world from inside, a mother and her young daughter.  Of course, Eastwood would forget both and face down the bandits in glorious gunfire, doing what needed to be done despite the cries of safety from the women.  And that’s where we find ourselves in a very modern time.  We have a challenge to our order of American hopes and dreams and a real need to throw away safety, security, and domestic bliss to face down evil for all its worth and deal with it squarely.  After the crimes showed just in election fraud from 2020, I think the case for bringing back hanging as capital punishment is more than justified and is something we should have a serious conversation about.

Men and women certainly have different roles in any social order, and since westerns were produced and society has “evolved,” our opinions about things have become murky.  I would argue that all this ambiguity has been on purpose to allow criminal activity.  Like all bad guys in the world, they seldom ever sell their actions that way.  But it takes good people to see bad people for their worth, and sometimes, the good people must risk it all to do what must be done to protect the world from evil.  And to understand how to tell good from bad, it must be clear which is which.  As the social order of our times has been formed by those most hostile to tradition, it is helpful to turn to history and our culture of stories for clarity which I’ve done due to the 2020 election. I’ve spent many weeks on the road in 2021 and traveled all over the Wild West studying history.  Much of it was to finish off my manuscript to The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, a book that makes a case for many things that need to happen in the 21st century. I’ve probably seen every western ever made, but to think about the vast evil I was witnessing, I needed to go and see the places I had read about over so many years and consider the options.  And one thing that continued to come up in the many books I picked up unique to traveling in those western areas was that hanging seemed to work a lot better than the legalisms of the progressive era. 

I was in Deadwood roaming the streets as my family waited for a table to eat at a nearby restaurant as I ran across a book that turned out to be fantastic for this purpose called The Outlaws of South Dakota.  It was the kind of book you wouldn’t just buy on Amazon, it was a local flavor, and it was perfect for getting a good taste of Deadwood’s history.  I had read about so many places in Deadwood that my visit gave me a good foundation for the words on pages, and by the time my family was seated, I had an excellent place to take my research to the next level.  And it was clear from that research, no matter where I traveled, from Deadwood to Lincoln County, New Mexico, that when people would hang bad guys for simple threats and slights against innocent people, the society worked a whole lot better.  When the attempt to replace justice with lawyers and human resource departments was introduced at the start of the progressive era to stop people from shooting each other in the streets, the trend of criminals was to hide their actions behind rules nobody wanted to follow.  And evil spread like wildfire.  After banning alcohol with the 18th Amendment in 1919 and the women’s right to vote in 1921, we can see the intention of governments and the criminals who prospered from the power grabs of the progressive era.  Replacing the woman as the guardian of domestic bliss was the first step, and robbing a man of something to fight for was the second.  The gunfighters in the streets were pushed deep into history, the alcohol slugging loner ignoring the women and meeting a bad guy in the street for frontier justice was a thing of the past, and what the government instead gave us were comb-over lawyers that interfered with justice giving rise to “organized crime” as we would come to know it.

These were the days of Bonnie and Clyde and Al Capone, who would take the government overreach and profit from the chaos.  People no longer stood up to evil or even their wives for the right to justice.  Now preserving justice was not even a domestic problem; everyone hid in their homes and called the government to do the work.  It’s out of this chaos that Saul Alinsky learned from Al Capone himself how to make the Democrat Party into a government-sponsored organized crime syndicate, which is where we find ourselves today.  It seems like a long time, but the election fraud that we saw in 2020 was just the result of 100 years of progressive erosion of justice.  There was no longer a woman to turn away from maintaining domestic bliss and family love to risk it all to face down evil.  Now evil was everywhere, and nobody could see it because nobody was home even to fend it off.  Everyone worked for the government to be good taxpayers to fund a monster government that criminals essentially ran.

We were supposed to maintain that government by elected representatives, but we learned in 2020 that the criminals were running the show, and nobody was meeting them in the streets to stop them.  They didn’t respect our laws, and they certainly didn’t appreciate any of us.  While traveling and reading this year, it became clear that the only way to stop that lack of respect is to get back to the days of what worked and what didn’t.  What didn’t work was putting safety first and listening to what the government wanted to do about justice.  What did work was that people at the front of justice, alone in faraway places like Deadwood, South Dakota, often hung bad people at the point of a crime, where it happened quickly.  And things were much better off than they are now.  So perhaps we should be thinking this way again.  Because what is going on now just isn’t working, and we need it to.  We have a criminal government, and we need to meet it in the street and deal with it accordingly.  But to deal with evil, first, we need to see it.

They Killed James Bond: A warning to us all that nobody escapes from progressives

They Killed James Bond

Studios were surprised in Hollywood when the new James Bond film No Time To Die didn’t blow the doors off the box office over its opening weekend.  Like every other underperforming fool these days, they wanted to blame Covid, which governments created to commit election fraud, not that they killed James Bond in the movie.  Who thought that was a good idea?  After 60 years of narrow escapes, they found a way and a time for James Bond to die at the end of No Time To Die. They probably should have taken their own advice given to them in the title. It was just another disappointment that we are all getting used to strong, white, male characters that progressives think they can kill in stories and replace them with women or people of color for the sake of the visual aspects of things and that people would accept it.  Over the last two years, as we have waited for this movie to come out, the rumors of the next James Bond being a woman, a gay guy, or all kinds of other things have been discussed openly.  When the movie finally opened, enough people had enough.  It leaked out that this Daniel Craig James Bond was going to die, and people weren’t exactly in a rush to see it happen.  It’s not enough to make a technically good movie; James Bond is one of those special cases where he’s a hero who always gets away, like Bugs Bunny.  But then again, Bugs Bunny is pretty much banned these days too.  Any strong characters without obvious flaws in the mind of progressives are a danger to their politics, so they look to get rid of them and replace them with flawed, mortal characters who are easy to control by the government. 

This isn’t unique to the Bond film franchise.  I have written many hundreds of thousands of words about the failure of Disney to handle the Star Wars franchise.  It was astonishing that given all the great resources they had in Star Wars left to them by George Lucas, that they screwed it up so badly.  Yet when I saw The Force Awakens back in 2015, it was clear that when they decided to kill Han Solo, the plan was the same as Bond.  Kill off Anglo-Saxon white men in the public’s minds so their rule over mankind will end, starting with stories.  Then replace them with people of color and women, and make them like it.  That was essentially the goal of the new Star Wars films, and people rejected them so severely that the brand is now permanently damaged.  Disney has a new CEO who has been brought in to fix things.  Lucasfilm is also moving people around who like Star Wars to repair the brand, which will take years if possible.  I think they’ll make things better, but the damage is already set.  Some things you can’t tamper with.  If a character has a special place in people’s minds, you better treat them well and not take them for granted.  Otherwise, don’t expect to use them to drive box office results while at the same time appeasing all the anti-capitalist radicals who have infiltrated leftist thinking for communist domination of the world. 

Star Wars is an easy one to see because it’s so obvious.  As big of a company as they are, Disney never understood why people liked the film franchise.  Some of the plotlines they have introduced then rejected over the last several years indicate that Kathy Kennedy never understood why the films she was invited to produce worked, like the Indiana Jones films and all the Steven Spielberg projects she was a part of.  Because she thought she could interfere with what the public liked and that as long as space creatures and spaceships were flying around, that people would buy a ticket to her liberal propaganda.  Well, as it turns out, that’s not how things work.  People want heroes they can believe in.  People worth watching who manage to outsmart the bad guys. That’s why people buy a movie ticket.  Reality is tough enough.  When people enter a darkened theater, they want to see hope. 

I think movie box office results are some of the best votings there are.  People truly vote with their feet.  It’s not easy for Democrats to cheat the vote because they still can’t control what people like.  Ultimately people decide what they like and see and if they don’t want to see James Bond getting killed.  Then they won’t see it happen.  They might catch the movie on cable later, but they aren’t going to pay money to see it happen.  One of the clear political strategies that China has in mind for America and all the Davos insurgents is to rob our culture of hopes and dreams and instead show that even James Bond eventually gets it in the end.  Filmmakers seem to want to praise those types of people at cocktail parties rather than being blamed for being just another capitalist producer who put profits over the party.  The ultimate check on that power is to reject those films at the box office, which happened with the new James Bond film.  They killed Bond.  And the box office reflects that people didn’t want to see it happen. Just as Disney killed off Han Solo and thought they could replace him with some Dora the Explorer character, and they’d still make money.

Yet to continue to hide these things from the public, every time they get caught, Covid is used to hide the incompetence of the participants.  No Time To Die was supposed to be released in early April of 2020.  It has had its release date pushed back many times, finally hitting theaters in October of 2021, really at a terrible time for a Bond film.  This is what the Great Reset looks like, folks.  Incompetent people release their movies that used to be valuable to the public.  The public forgets about them and moves on to other things, and when the results don’t come out the way stakeholders expect, well then, they blame Covid.  Ultimately, governments have interfered with the marketplace, and the bootlickers have wasted more time appeasing them than actually trying to make a movie people want to see.  The governments are the new audience to appease, not the popcorn-eating public, and these projects are flat and boring.   And coming out of a disappointing time when governments tried to completely take over our healthcare with a made-up crisis in Covid, built in a Wuhan lab in China by Dr. Fauci NIH funding, movie producers are trying to take away anything that might be considered good in our movies and entertainment.  Their message to us is, “see, even James Bond gets it in the end.  Not even he can escape our power.” It shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of us, given what we have seen from authority figures in 2021.  The bad guys wrote this latest James Bond film as propaganda for the future they want to control.  That understanding makes me proud to see that people didn’t get suckered into it and decided to stay home.  No Time To Die didn’t come up short at the box office because of Covid.  People are starving for reasons to get out of the house.  They aren’t scared of the virus.  No, they don’t want to see one more icon of western civilization killed in front of their faces, which was the intention of the woke James Bond of this modern age.  People voted in a way that Democrats couldn’t steal, and it shows in the box office ultimately.

The Case for Voting Todd Minniear to Liberty Township Trustee: Where real leadership has been needed as opposed to rubber stamping comprehensive plans

Todd Minniear for Liberty Township Trustee

The trustee race in Liberty Township, Ohio, is interesting because it allows for an advanced discussion of politics that hasn’t been available to us.  On the one hand, there is an incumbent who is a decent Republican, Tom Farrell. He’s offering the status quo rubber stamp on the comprehensive plan so that investors won’t have to worry about unnecessary changes in government to ruin their forecasts.  I understand those problems and can see why stability there would be much desired by many people.  Then there is Buck Rumpke, a hard-working guy from zoning who wants to work with Farrell to continue implementing the Liberty Township comprehensive plan essentially.  I would argue that such a goal is filled with peril because those comprehensive plans are usually written by liberals hired to write them. They essentially reflect the exact phrasing of what the United Nations 2030 plans sound like and are filled with many green energy code words, which, if you peel that back, lead to global communism.  Tom and Buck certainly aren’t communists, but they aren’t exactly the kind of people who are intellectually curious about significant, international matters either.  They know what they know and stay in their lane, which is excellent if you want followers.  But in providing leadership, not so much. 

Where many communities can’t afford to debate about levels of conservative policymaking, I see in Liberty a unique situation.  I like Tom, I like Buck, but in listening to them talk, I’m always looking for more from a leadership standpoint, especially after what we know now after the 2020 election year.  Priorities certainly shifted, which is a point I will make for what I think is the best consideration for trustee in Liberty Township in Todd Minniear.  I remember well the challenges that Senator George Lang had back when he was a trustee in West Chester when he worked to challenge the comprehensive plan there and the debates about the library that were a big deal then.  George handled things well, there were times when deviating from the plan made sense, and the debates were healthy.  In Liberty Township, the attitude has pretty much been, follow the plan, and that has made the politics of Liberty Township much less attractive. The problems that we are now facing are even more predictable. 

For instance, Todd Minniear talks about it all the time, to encourage more growth in Liberty Township, which is landlocked for the most part, the comprehensive plan advocates for more high-density dwellings, such as apartments like the ones that were approved by zoning to go along with the new Costco development.  Now for the record, I love the idea of the Costco development, and I love Liberty Center.  There is a lot of good that comes from those developments.  Much better than bad.  But Todd is not wrong when he says that apartment dwellings are bad for Liberty Township because it cheapens everything.  They don’t pay for themselves in value and what you end up with is a bunch of voters who have no real ownership in their properties making decisions for the rest of us.  Apartments are a super bad idea in that context.  But, apartments are part of that United Nations comprehensive plan that I mentioned, and that is the problem with following those plans without questioning the reasoning.  The goal of the greenie crowd is to stack people on top of each other and make the world need less cars.  So sidewalks and integrated developments are the wave of the future from the United Nations’ standpoint.  Ownership of private property is something they intend to phase out.  When Todd speaks out against apartment construction, it’s not because he’s anti-development.  But he gets the eventual depletion in value that they create. 

Also, what comes up often in such debates is what to do with the great shopping and living development of Liberty Center. It’s a struggling development that started with high hopes. I’m a huge fan of the development, and yes, they are in need of a tax bailout.  I am usually a person who is against bailouts of any kind. However, much of the cause of Liberty Center’s troubles came from the government, specifically Governor Mike DeWine.  When Liberty Center was built, it was already a challenge for brick and mortar stores to make investments there, given Amazon’s impact and other online stores have provided to the market.  But given the wealth of Liberty Township, the risk was worth it, and it turned out to be a significant development.  It still is in every respect.  However, when Mike DeWine shut down the state’s economy over Covid, it directly hit every kind of brick and mortar store, and Liberty Center was struck at a critical time in its business cycle.  Now, to their credit and the credit of Liberty Township shoppers, many businesses at Liberty Center have managed to stick around.  The movie theater is still open.  The restaurants have survived mainly.  There is a lot of good to talk about.  But to give an example, my wife wanted to take one of our grandchildren to the playground there the other day, and it was still closed due to liability concerns over Covid.  So things have not resumed to normal even after the pandemic, which directly impacts the flow of shoppers to the complex.  When you can’t just go and have fun but still must deal with Covid rules, shoppers are more inclined to stay home and shop online.  Now, was that part of the United Nations comprehensive plan?  Of course not.  The developers of Liberty Township followed all the sustainability rules.  But, the government changed the rules. 

This is where a person like Todd Minniear would shine as a trustee because he is an advocate of the great book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates, which professes that leadership has an obligation to question the authority of any higher authority.  An example would be the Biden executive order on vaccine mandates or Biden’s orders to shut down businesses to Covid rules.  Todd, in fact, during Covid challenged the DeWine administration and won in court, so he is the only candidate who has been successful in challenging higher authorities based on Constitutional law.  And when it came to helping places like Liberty Center during Covid, they sure could have used Todd Miinniear as a trustee during the Covid shutdowns because it might have helped them not take such a hit for which they now need a bailout.  Looking back on how things should have been handled with Governor Mike DeWine, before the legislature eventually took away his authoritarian mandates under emergency protocols, there needed to be many more politicians like Todd Minniear in place to protect businesses and residents from unnecessary pain.   Liberty Center is an obvious example, but the actual costs to Ohio are still incalculable.  To get an opportunity to get a talented person like Todd onto a board of trustees is unique.  It would be a shame to pass it up. 

After a recent debate among the Liberty and West Chester Trustees, I listened to Ann Becker debate The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates with Todd.  Ann Becker is a trustee in West Chester, and I’ve known her for a long time and respect her.  She isn’t a fan of the book, so it was a great talk between her and Todd over the philosophy of a trustee’s role under such conditions.  We may not have had that discussion before Covid because nobody would have ever thought a governor like DeWine would ever try to shut down an economy.  But now that we’ve seen the teeth of government, especially at the state and federal level, such debates have a lot more validity.  I decided Todd Minniear was the absolute best candidate for Liberty Township Trustee after listening to this friendly debate.  Ann is a smart cookie, and Todd could answer all her questions quickly and effectively with the actual state revised code he had on hand. He’s such a great mind; it would be a shame not to use it fully since he’s offering it as a public servant.  And I am very, very excited to vote for him for all these reasons and more.   We live in a time where we need politicians to do more than just rubber stamp pre-written comprehensive plans.  Sometimes we need politicians to challenge those plans, but most of all, we need leadership, even when abuses of authority come from higher offices like presidents and governors.  Todd Minniear is the only candidate I know who has a proven track record of success in doing this, and for the future of Liberty Township, we will need a lot more of that than what we’ve had in the past.

It’s Time to Make January 6th a National Holiday: Standing up to tyranny is a good thing that should be celebrated

Make January 6th a National Holiday

There are all kinds of ways to fight and defeat an opponent.  And that is precisely what we are experiencing in America; it’s not a fight so much between liberals and conservatives, but sovereignty over global order.  Corporations want that international order because it makes it easier for their lazy minds to plan.  Suppose the whole world is under one type of government. In that case, it dramatically simplifies operating in all those different countries if the United Nations is calling the shots, instead of The United States doing this or China doing that.  The corporate push to stabilize government systems, even toward communism, is very attractive to large corporations, which is why we have seen so much wokeness in America recently.  The fight has been to defeat sovereign Americans, rip it down, get rid of the flag, singing the National Anthem, history, all things that would remind Americans of their good past.  Then to rebuild it all back up under a United Nations type of world view.  This is certainly a commitment of the Biden administration.  Recently he announced that he was going to invite the United Nations to critic America on racism.  The same kind of tampering goes on with climate change.  We are being introduced to a new way of thinking globally, not domestically.  The corporate world wants to deliver to the United Nations a change state intact for its products.  But without the connection to American history.  And what we do know of American history, it should be an embarrassment about slavery, Indians, and the evils of capitalism.   

They don’t want to crush us into destruction.  They want to rebuild us into their desired consumer.  So with that in mind, you can see why election fraud occurred, and Trump was removed from office.  He told the United Nations that he would always put America First. Of course, every corporation that had already invested in the global change couldn’t have that.  They were too far down the rabbit hole to turn back by 2016 and 2017.  The machine was well in motion, even at Disney.  Most of America’s corporations had sold out and invested in the new global way of seeing the world.  We were told that even at our local zoning meetings.  It was too late to change back to the way things were.  Covid was created in the Wuhan lab in China by Dr. Fauci’s NIH people working with Bill Gates and several other progressive investors to use the virus the way it had been planned at Event 201 in New York, to create a Great Reset all across the world and a Build Back Better plan that only communists would find attractive.  This leads to our present problems that are blowing up in the insurgents’ face because Covid failed to spark a Great Reset in America.  It has worked in places where the government is most active, like public schools and government buildings.  But the American people haven’t fallen for it, which has created a lot of alarm among the globalists—the UN members who desperately want global socialism and the corporations who have already invested in that reality. 

For the globalists, the game was over on Election Night 2020; on November 3rd, they had done what they could and found 45,000 votes to put Biden over the top in the critical states for an electoral college victory.  The corporate media had sat on the Biden laptop October surprise, which easily impacted enough votes to flip the election from Trump to Biden.  Later even Democrats admitted that they would have voted differently if they had known what was on the Biden laptop and how it connected to China.  But all these crimes were committed behind a veil of Covid safety, giving a cover story unlike anything in the history of the world, and nobody was worried about ever getting caught.  Later, through state audits, we would discover that the political left and their corporate supporters went into a frenzy on election night, cheating in many uncoordinated ways, especially once the Vegas oddsmakers had called for Trump around 9 PM.  At that point, five states stopped counting, and in desperation, Democrats found the votes Biden needed. Still, it would take over a week after the election to make it happen to commit all kinds of crimes along the way, such as not letting observers witness the count.  Laws were being broken, an election was being stolen, and the globalists were daring us to make an aggressive move.  The threats were getting pretty rough.

When it came time to certify the election around January 6th, there were a lot of people who could see that things were wrong and they weren’t going to stand for it.  Some of them showed up at the Capitol in Washington D.C. to show their anger and protest.  Maybe they were baited by the FBI.  It doesn’t matter; what matters is that looking back, many of those people were right to question the election.  And what they did by occupying the Capitol was a proper thing to do.  It shouldn’t have turned to violence, but then again, election fraud shouldn’t have happened.  Our government should not have sold out to the global forces pushing for socialism under the umbrella of the United Nations.   People had a right to be upset about it.  It certainly wasn’t the worst thing that ever happened in our country.   Looking back on it, maybe it was one of the best.  In hindsight, it makes a lot more sense now.  It’s good to know that at least some people weren’t going to be suckered into our country’s theft and were willing to show up to do something about it. 

For that reason, I will start celebrating each year’s January 6th as a kind of Independence Day. I’ll buy fireworks and fly my flags to remember a modern instance where tyranny had to be fought and that some people showed up to meet it at the people’s house.  The fact that the government has unfairly prosecuted participants at that January 6th event only confirms what they are trying to hide.  When a government becomes abusive, especially when they are guilty of doing wrong, you know a replacement government is needed.  When they are holding people in solitary confinement when radical billionaires like George Soros are running around free, you know the system is not working on behalf of the American people.  But as I said, that was part of the plan, to separate us from our past, of our history.  Of our notion of sovereignty.  That is why we have current open borders so that our idea of America can be destroyed. We can be rebuilt under the control of the United Nations and the sustainability plans that they come up with at these climate conferences.  At the time, I didn’t see anything wrong with the protests of angry voters at the Capitol building on January 6th.  I thought it was healthy for politicians to see what might happen if they got caught double-crossing the American people, which they had.  I thought they were getting off easy and that a bit of protest with some broken windows was a fair warning.  Because of the crime, the collaboration with China over creating Covid-19 and using it to cheat an election to put in Joe Biden by corporate controllers was an unforgivable crime.  It was treason of the highest order, and we should celebrate that there are still people in America willing to stand up for the law, which is what they did on January 6th

Vote Todd Minniear for Liberty Township Trustee: Getting to know the candidates in Liberty and West Chester Townships.

Vote for Todd Minniear for Liberty Township Trustee

Like I did for the school board candidates at Lakota for the 2021 election, I have clips of the various candidates to help make decisions.  Like the school board candidates, I support some and recommend changing some of the incumbents in Liberty Township.  These clips deal with trustee candidates in Liberty Township and West Chester, two of the most affluent and great places to live in the United States.  And they are examples of just how great a small government is when you have just three trustees managing things.  So, of course, for this next election, the goal is to keep the government small, effective, and accountable.  I say all that because we do have some significant government types who are running.  Trent Emeneker calls himself a fiscal conservative but had a “meet and greet” at Liberty Center with a known Democrat.  You can see by the video clips that he’s not worth a vote so that I won’t waste much time on him.  In West Chester, the choice is clear.  Mark Welch is a personal friend of mine not because he’s a politician, but because over time, and common ways of looking at things, it just evolved that way. He’s many reasons West Chester has been so successful, and we certainly want to keep things that way.  There are two seats open, so the second should be Lee Wong.  Lee and I have not gotten along over the years, but in this case, he’s working well with Mark and Ann Becker as a trustee, and we want to keep that going.  So the trustee race in West Chester is easy.

However, Liberty Township is more complex; it’s far more complicated.  I live in Liberty Township.  I have lived in Liberty Township for about 45 years of my life.  I spent nearly a decade living in other places worldwide, but my wife and I returned to Liberty Township after the 1990s and loved it very much.  Yet, I have paid a lot more attention to West Chester than Liberty for a good reason.  In West Chester, I was involved in the Tea Party there; Ann Becker was the president of the Cincinnati Tea Party, a pretty big position.  George Lang, a senator now, was a trustee who was getting voted against during every meeting.  We worked hard to put Mark Welch in the second spot to help George get the votes he needed, and it worked very well.  And we went to work to fill the West Chester trustees with all those Tea Party types of candidates.  History will show how smart that was.

Tea Party people are not crazy radicals.  They are fiscal conservatives, small government-minded, and rooted in American traditions.  So I enjoyed the experiment in a small government that was going on in West Chester that has produced magnificent results.  Because of the population density of West Chester, there have been lots of Democrats who have tried to push for a city designation.  The latest is Trent Emeneker.  They want to be a city because it creates more jobs for the government, which drives up costs, bureaucracy, and the overall feel of the community.  Between those three names, George Lang, Mark Welch, and Ann Becker, West Chester has managed to stay lean and sharp, making for a wonderful place to live and work.  Better than just about any other place in the country. 

In Liberty Township, there have always been these Agenda 21 Comprehensive Plans that liberals write and conservative trustees have then followed which has been highly unsatisfying for a guy like me, a long term resident who knows what Liberty Township was like before all the tag-alongs moved in from other places and brought all their big government ideas with them.  And now there is the Agenda 2030 plan that the United Nations has put out, and if you read it and also read the 2020 Comprehensive Plan for Liberty Township, you’ll see that the same person might have as well written them.  Of course, they weren’t, but the ideas are the same.  This is what you get when you hire many kids trained in good, liberal colleges who have been taught that the United Nations would rule the world and that any interpretation of sustainable development must come from those socialists and communists on the world stage.  When any trustees commission a plan like the Comprehensive Plan for 2020 or any previous revisions, you essentially get a bunch of liberals who decide what your community will look like.  I can say that George Lang had quite a challenge when he pushed back against this trend in West Chester.  I know some of the personal stories, and thank goodness George did push back in constructive ways.  But in Liberty Township, even though the trustees are usually what everyone considers “rock-ribbed Republicans,” they get pulled into the Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 game of serving the United Nations instead of the real history of Liberty Township and the reasons people moved to the area, to begin with.

Every time I have to navigate one of the many dumb roundabouts in Liberty Township, it reminds me what suckers our local government has been toward this United Nations strategy.  I know all of them and have over the years.  They consider themselves conservatives and don’t think of the United Nations game.  Only people who do some research into the matter would know the strategy of how the United Nations embedded itself into all local zoning to lay the groundwork for a future of sidewalks, roundabouts, electric energy, and an eventual carless society.  It was a plan from the United Nations that sought to turn capitalism on its head to implement its objectives. They got away with it because people generally don’t look for the United Nations fingerprints on these kinds of Comprehensive Plans that the trustees follow in their decision-making processes.  Because of this adherence to a United Nations comprehensive plan, I have not been interested in Liberty Township politics at the same level as West Chester.  The frustration with them is just too much a pain in the ass.  They are good people; I like my trustees, two running for November, Tom Ferrall and Buck Rumpke.  But they are big government guys who have philosophies that lean towards development and not personal freedom.  For instance, many local developers want to know that someone is following some comprehensive plan to understand what property to buy and how to invest in the future.  But, to make a good community, there are many more factors to consider, and in Liberty Township, they often don’t come to light. 

To make matters worse, one outstanding trustee that Liberty Township had was David Kern, who recently died.  He was a Tea Party guy, and an influential Republican before the world fell into a tailspin.  But he was old when I was a little kid in Liberty Township, and my brother used to play with their kid at their nursery off Millikan Road.  Once David Kern was no longer a trustee, the government of Liberty Township moved much more toward the United Nations than the personal liberty and sovereignty of the United States.  David used to like to poke sticks in these kinds of comprehensive plans.  He might eventually vote on them, but he at least would argue the matter to see how strong they were.  It was a good balance to have someone like David Kern on the Liberty Township Trustees for many years.  Yet since his death, a guy like him has been missed. 

So when it comes to this election, I was pretty bored with it until I met Todd Minniear at the West Chester Tea Party forum recorded in these videos.  I like Buck Rumpke as a candidate and Republican, but he’s coming over from zoning. As I said, most zoning people have been saturated over the years through their educations with this massive United Nations plot to “Make Europe Great Again.” I have written voluminously that one of the great insecurities of America is the lack of history and culture that we have as a young country, compared to Europe.  So we assume that Europe, the mother country, is the way to emulate, and many of the Liberty Township residents have evolved into thinking the same way.  A wine purchased from Europe has a much higher value than a wine purchased from a vineyard by the Rumpke landfill.  They may be just as good, but it’s the stigma that people care about.  When I hear Buck talk, it’s evident that he’s been saturated with this global way of thinking. He’s a small-town guy who worked hard all his life at the family garbage business, and he wants to show how cultured he is by adopting all these woke, globalists’ points of view. He’s a super nice guy, but he thinks wrong about the big things.  And I would put Tom Ferrall into that same category.  Big government guy who wants to show how cultured he is by supporting all these dumb roundabouts and other European features. I’ll end up voting for one or the other, but my first pick will undoubtedly be Todd Minniear in a two-seat race. 

So Todd and I have met each other on several occasions.  I didn’t know it at the time, but Todd was on the front line protesting against what DeWine was doing during the Covid lockdowns. He’s smart, and he gets it. He’s a Tea Party type which excites me because of the success that we have seen in West Chester.  To have a guy like Todd in Liberty Township might help take things in a more successful direction.  Todd Minniear challenged the DeWine administration in court and won over the Covid lockdowns, and he is extremely intelligent.  Talking to him reminded me of David Kern.  What an excellent opportunity to get a great trustee onto the Liberty board.  People like Todd Minniear do not come along often.  Clearly, by watching the videos included here, you can see my two picks by how well they spoke.   Todd was by far the most articulate of the evening, and he’s willing to do that extra work that is often necessary.  When we talk about “liberty” in Liberty Township, we are not talking about blind compliance to some United Nations Comprehensive Plan or other dumb rules that hold us back.  Sometimes we need people we put into such positions to push back against the rules because the people making the rules may not have our best interests in mind.  That is the case with the United Nations.  They want Liberty Township to look like Europe, not America, and if you follow their ideas, that’s exactly what we’ll get.  Todd has a history of challenging the rules, which is precisely what we need in Liberty Township.

After the forum, I spoke to Todd a bit, along with other very smart people in the room, and had questions for the bright young mind.  I noticed that Todd had the great book that I value quite a lot, The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates.  That is a book that describes the moral obligation of leadership lower in the pecking order of life to push back against authoritarian rule.  The book proposes several instances where it is the moral obligation to lash back at a higher authority for corrupt regulations and edicts.  For example, in this case, we should have had more trustees, state reps, and senators who openly fought the unconstitutional vaccine mandate.  For Joe Biden to issue an executive order demanding that all federal employees take medicine or lose their jobs, we needed more local officials to reject the premise.  Instead, most everyone has caved from lawyers to human resource departments for fear of drawing attention to themselves.  When Governor DeWine issued the mask mandates of last year, Butler County’s Sheriff Jones was one of the first in the country to say no, we’re not going to do that.  We need many more politicians in prominent positions who will behave this way when pressed, and Buck Rumpke and Tom Farrell are certainly not those guys.  They will be the first to put on the mask and follow the rules, like good Republicans who care more about adherence to the law than whether the laws are correct and just.  Todd Minniear cares about what’s truly right or wrong, and for me that sets him into a stratosphere all his own. He’s a lot better than the other two guys, and I will be voting for him. 

Like most of them, this election season proposes good things for those with the guts to say yes to them.  It takes courage to try something different, but sometimes it takes courage to stick to what’s working.  In West Chester, it takes guts to keep things solid as they have been.   To resist the tide of corruption that wants to open the door to a bigger government, to loot off the efforts of what made West Chester great, to begin with.  Yet, in Liberty Township, it would take guts to vote for Todd Minniear and take a great community and make it noticeably better.  Liberty Township has enjoyed a cascade effect from West Chester for years.  But now, there is an opportunity to make Liberty Township its unique kind of good truly.  That won’t happen with Buck Rumpke or Tom Farrell by themselves.  It would take a truly smart intellect and a person willing to do the extra work in Todd Minniear to pull it off, which is a fascinating prospect.

We Love an Angry Trump: The United Nations provoking a divorce in America

We Love an Angry Trump, because we are Angry

It’s pretty clear now what’s been happening.  Not that we didn’t already know, but our fights have been localized on purpose so that we don’t see the big picture. At the same time, we are looking at mask mandates and vaccine mandates.  The Texas abortion bill.  The collapsing economy.  Afghanistan.  Racism.  CRT. All these topics are created diversions of tragedy so that you don’t see the deals we have been signed up for that went against us all.  We are not supposed to know that we are at war with China.  And that the United Nations is working hard to apply Cloward and Piven tactics to collapse the American way of life so that The Great Reset will bring down life in the United States so, through wealth redistribution, other countries can be equalized under control by the United Nations.

We have been told that we are going to defund the police.  We are letting criminals out of jail so they can undo our society from within.  We are putting good people in prison; the FBI is attacking mothers protesting corrupt school boards.  It’s all been an attack, and it is scary because we didn’t want to be at war.  We just wanted to live our lives.  Yet, it’s not all bad.  I would offer that we are all better off now knowing what we do because we can take action against it.  For a long time, the situation in America has been like a divorce that was about to happen, but nobody wanted to talk about it.  But one day, we had that complicated conversation with our spouse at the dinner table. “Are you cheating on me?” Or, to people like Mitch McConnell and the senate that just increased the debt ceiling for cornered Democrats, “are you selling us out to the United Nations and the globalist plan that has been cooking for many decades?”

Did you notice that even with the massive amounts of other news to talk about, the media was pushing the story of how The United Nations named The Weekend musical group the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Food Program to Stop Hunger Worldwide?  Now, remember what I have said about the United Nations.  They are certainly chess players in this overtaking the United States and the sell-outs of Americans who have empowered them to believe they can rule the world; they are made up of socialists and communists.  They are not capitalist-driven American lovers, so when they talk about helping the poor, they don’t intend to fix what causes people to be poor; they mean to take from America and give to those who don’t have much, without dealing with why they were poor in the first place.  The announcement was something that might have previously been a big New York story or something that would come out of The Hollywood Reporter.  But this was a global endeavor claiming American assets as their preparing everyone for the eventual change state.  It’s why people like Mitch McConnell and Rob Portman don’t care if they betray you because they believe that the next phase of America is under the United Nations.  When Trump had and continues to talk about America First, this is why they hate him and any supporters who believe the same thing.  Because in their minds, they have already had that divorce, and they are just waiting out the clock.  Or so they hope. 

I keep talking about the Stephanie Grisham book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now, because I learned a lot from it that I didn’t know.  Usually, I learn only 10% with each new book read, but that one had maybe 30% new stuff that I didn’t know.  So it was a real treasure for me.  Not that it was a good book, but it was like reading the diary of someone close to the Trump White House from the perspective of a globalist.   As a media member and from a media perspective, it was fascinating to see how outraged Stephanie was about the aggressive management style of the Trumps and the anger of the supporters.  It was quite a mystery to her, as it continues to be among others in the media who thought long ago that Trump could be destroyed and that populism would be crushed and all the plans for the great divorce would occur painlessly.  The kids would live with dad in the United Nations while the ex-wife named Lady Liberty would barely rub two sticks together to get a can of soup in America.  That was the plan until the dad saw how enraged Lady Liberty was, and things went sideways.  And that is the real story here, not to lose focus on what Dr. Fauci did with the Wuhan lab to unleash Covid to cheat in elections.  What did he know, and when did he know it?  Everything else is a diversion.  And yes, we have a right to be angry. We’ve been betrayed.  We were cheated on.  We have been let down.   And ultimately, that is why we felt it was OK to have a president who would fight back, who had a vicious temper.  We wanted a fighter in the White House who would not sell us all out to global forces.  And then they tried to take that away from us and expected compliance.  They were so wrong.

This week, you might have noticed another story about the United Nations’ control of the world with the 15% minimum corporate tax rate, which Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was a part of along with The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.  The goal is to get rid of tax havens to collect tax money to run this new global bureaucracy.  Joe Biden was right there in agreement quickly.  That was because this was all part of the plan when they cheated the election in 2020 and involved themselves in fraud.  They had to get rid of Trump and the America First policy; otherwise, none of these things they are doing now, like collapsing America’s economy so that we can be restructured under the United Nations, could occur.  By the time we caught on to the fraud and found out who was involved, the world would be switched over to a World Court that wouldn’t care about any American laws that were broken.  They are playing for keeps. 

Yet, of course, we answered all this by putting Trump in office.  We wanted to fight back.  We wanted someone who would foil their plans, so yes, the support for Trump only got stronger.  This was not part of their ill-conceived plan.  They didn’t expect so much resistance from Americans.  They thought that after Covid, they’d have us all in the bag.  They didn’t believe Trump would stick around and still be a political factor.  They thought they could steer the GOP toward someone more reasonable, such as Nikki Haley, and that Democrats would stay in power.  These investigations into election fraud and the roots of the bioweapon Covid-19 were not supposed to happen.  Google, Facebook, and Twitter were supposed to be able to contain those investigations.  But instead, the MAGA movement has created news networks such as Warroom and social media platforms like Gettr.  And the world is marching toward populism and looking for America to lead them toward independence.  That has interrupted the divorce proceedings and left the dad, not in such an excellent position to run off with another sovereignty and take the kids with him. Now it’s looking like the kids will stay with mom and that dad has been caught cheating and will lose things that are very valuable in the process.  Yes, we have a right to be angry.  We support Trump and expect him to be angry.  Because it was wrongs done to us that provoked that anger, and now it’s time to pay.

A Review of ‘I’ll Take Your Questions Now’: It’s all about ‘The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates’

The Truth about Trump’s Success

To understand why I love Stephanie Grisham’s new book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now; you’d have to understand the contents of the excellent book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates or even why I get very excited about Thanksgiving and the jail cell of one of the founders of the Mayflower journey in Canterbury, England.  Or why I get excited about Salisbury, England, where one of the four Magna Cartas currently resides.  Humans have been on a long trek for personal freedom and liberty. When we elected Donald Trump, it was essentially a declaration of independence against the global forces trying to sucker the United States into the grand scheme of globalism, for which most in the Beltway had no idea was even happening. Stephanie’s book indeed revealed that, in all its glorious detail.  Even working so close to the Trump family, Stephanie never figured out what happened or why.  And the media she had such a tight relationship with never understood either.  Without knowing it, their lives were prepared for them to think a certain way about things, which essentially was just another attempt by global forces to dominate those lesser magistrates of politics from top to bottom. Henry the 8th burned people at the stake or Henry the II killed the great Thomas Becket at the Canterbury Cathedral to rule us all with the same tyranny. I’ve stood in that spot and rubbed the ground where his blood was spilled for going against Henry the 8th and the power grabs between the church and state.  I have a profound hatred of tyranny in all forms, and I’ve been researching it in person around the world.  I appreciate The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates not just in principle but in the courage of a long line of patriots in forming them.  And when you wonder why the rest of the world doesn’t get it, you get a tell-all book like Stephanie Grisham’s, which reminds you of the real problems. 

I came out of reading I’ll Take Your Questions Now feeling very sorry for Stephanie Grisham.  Through the Trumps, she had opportunities she would never have received under more conventional White House occupants.  President Trump is a big personality who figures he can overcome anything.  He takes chances on people others wouldn’t, and that is undoubtedly the story of Stephanie Grisham, who would become the Press Secretary of both the President and First Lady in the White House during their term in office.  I understand Trump’s management style.  Sometimes you take big chances on people, and you find that diamond in the rough that turns out to be spectacular.  They just needed a leader to give them a chance to shine.  But often, probably 75% of the time, you get a dud that burns out, and that is what happened to Stephanie by the end of the Trump White House.  Covid quarantining, conventional thinking on her part, and her boyfriend’s nasty break-up, who also worked in the White House, was too much for her, and she broke.  Competitive relationships with co-workers didn’t help, and she didn’t have it in her.  Because she worked for the Trumps closely, after the White House, the world has not been kind to Stephanie, so she wrote a tell-all book detailing intimate secrets about the Trumps hoping to project her into a new life with a fresh start.  She admits that she’s a kind of liberal that identifies more as a John McCain Republican than a Donald Trump.  And by the end of her time with Trump, that became more obvious for her.  She didn’t have the stomach for all the unconventional thinking, and she fell from grace and wrote about it as if she were writing a diary that she’d share with the world.  In that way, it’s a fascinating book. 

I don’t typically talk about The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates. Still, as I was reading Stephanie’s book, I was involved in several engagements that brought it all together for me.  First was legal advice regarding the illegitimate Joe Biden’s executive order on all federal contractors.  This is just the kind of overreach warned about in that great book based on that long trajectory of freedom that I am obsessed with.  Then I was at a candidate forum with several people running for Trustee in townships I’m concerned with. I noticed that my friends, Mark Welch and Todd Minniear, discussed the book as part of the philosophical debate regarding Covid protocols and many recent instances of government overreach.  Todd brought his copy of the book to the meeting, which impressed me.  These were a couple of guys running for local office who understood the job of office pushback in politics to protect the interests of the people who voted them into power.  Stephanie never understood because she was such a conventional and educated thinker what role Trump played along those same lines.  The assumption is that the President of the United States is in the most powerful position in the world.  But to the Davos crowd, the United Nations people genuinely want to rule the world as a conglomerate of socialists from the Old World.  And the aggression of China who plans to follow Marxism to global domination, the United States is just another country.  They don’t care about our laws, our way of life, or what happens to us in the future. They’d love to not compete with us, so when it comes to the President of the United States, they want to view us as a lesser magistrate.  In that role, which voters for Trump have an innate understanding along the lines of the trajectory of freedom, they put Trump in power to resist those forces.  Even as close as she was to all the significant events, Stephanie never saw the big picture.  She only ever saw how the media might interpret those events, so she set to work to steer the Trumps this way and that for the benefit of the press.  Never for the overall objective of what was suitable for our country. 

I think it helped that Stephanie felt like a woman scorned fresh from a divorce of the Trumps, complaining as an ex-wife would about everything they hate about someone they once loved.  The rejection of that love drove out of her a truth we may never have seen otherwise.  But what she thought were faults, where Trump didn’t listen to other people, where the President would refer to himself as a genius, in the scheme of what it took to resist the imposition as a lessor magistrate from global forces, Trump was perfect and highly successful.  But even more so, Melania Trump proved that she was more than just a pretty face.  She was a keen and influential voice in the White House who truly loved class and freedom in ways nobody understood.  As I said in the video above, I’ve met the Trumps on a few occasions.  Occasionally when I get around celebrities, I’m not the type who asks for a picture, but they’ll ask if I want one, so I’ll take one.  But I don’t seek them out because I like to put people at ease under those conditions. I’ve seen the Trumps up close, and I thought about those meetings while reading Stephanie’s book, and many things made more sense to me for the positive.  We still need the Trumps, and we needed the Trumps when we had them.  And I’m glad Stephanie told her story, even if it was a little crazy at times talking about old boyfriends and dogs.  But the key to the Trumps and this period of time went unidentified.  Even those who were closest to the President and First Lady had no idea why they were so important and the key to the future of the freedom movement, which goes back thousands of years and is only climaxing in our present time against a shit shot from midcourt with no time on the clock for tyranny to rule again.
