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.

How to Cheat the Cheaters: The Covid vaccine mandate is a bridge too far

Governments Use Companies to Attack Rights the Constitution Prevents them from Having

In many ways, the Biden executive order demanding that there be Covid vaccine mandates broke something in me. I’m a pretty rational person, but suddenly all I could think about regarding the Biden administration, a bunch of crooks illegally inserted into the White House by a foreign country, “CHINA” and making rules for us without the legislature demanding that we put something into our bodies was a step too far.  It’s not just what it was; it’s how it was being done in such a manipulative way.  Then I watched many brilliant people cave to the order like McConnell, cheap, weak, fat, and comfortable under the debt limit debate.  Too comfortable for justice which disgusts me personally.  I listened to lawyers and politicians tell me all kinds of things about the Covid mandate; all of them talk tough, but all were too willing to cave into the illegal executive order by Biden just as predicted would happen.  It answered the old question as to why the Jews allowed themselves to be gathered up by Nazis and exterminated.  We saw the same behavior in America, and it disgusted me to my very core. I haven’t been able to think about our government since Biden announced the vaccine mandate in early September positively. Knowing that China was involved in creating coronavirus and that our government, through Dr. Fauci and funding by Bill Gates, was in on Covid from the start.  I can see that the Covid vaccine was just another gas chamber used to kill the Jews at the concentration camps.  History was repeating itself.  China had intent.  The United Nations had intent.  And Biden was compromised because of the criminal activity he had participated in to get to the White House.  And this is the guy telling us we had to get a Covid shot or we couldn’t work. It was coming from a loser who hasn’t worked a single day in his life and has made all his money selling out America over his 500 years in public office. 

I’ll be the first to say to everyone that there are plenty of workarounds to comply with the mandate.  There are lots of doctors who are willing to rebel against the Biden executive order with falsified papers.  There is, of course, the religious exemption.  The left, after all, should understand, they worship Satan and the Earth as a religion, so they’ll have to accept that we have a religion that keeps unneeded medicine from going into our bodies.  They can keep their medicine.  Through forgery and exemptions, we can get out of taking the shot easily.  But that’s not the point.  The problem I have with it all is the intent and the way the government used businesses as their enforcement arm to do to us what the Constitution does not grant to governments to impose on us.  And that crossed the line. It’s been going on for years, and most of the companies we work for adapt to those encroachments in the same way.  But never that I can remember was an attack on our liberties done in such a gross and over-the-top way. America’s companies have been the punching bags of tyranny from the government for too many years, and it’s time to stop that process from happening. 

Like most of the books that I have written in my life, I am relieved that my instincts on my latest one, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, were written the way I wrote it.  Last year while I was writing the manuscript, some of the parts that concerned rules and regulations centered around human resource departments I thought might be too much.  But true enough, it was right on target, especially in light of this Biden executive order.  It was the perfect example of how the government backdoors the American Constitution to impose rules without legislation.  It was, after all, the first thing that Mike DeWine targeted when the lockdowns started.  If you wanted to work, you had to wear a mask.  You had to follow the rules of a tyrant.  Well, in my book, I teach people how to undo those kinds of stupid rules and how to fight back by putting value where it is, in the individuals and not in big government come-along-lately types I call “Dandies.” The two other books I’ve written in my life deal with these subjects too.  In my Symposium of Justice, it’s all about a vigilante who takes to the streets to install justice because the criminals were empowered much the way George Soros has purchased district attornies who are radical progressives to harm good people and free the bad.  Yes, there is a time for such vigilantes, and I wrote the rules for doing it in that book.  My other book, Tail of the Dragon, is about a traffic stop gone wrong where the protagonist goes to war with the United States over their rights.  When people ask me what I would do if the Feds came to my house to arrest me for something I’ve written, or that some red flag law was called out against me by some nosy loser, I tell them to read that book as to what I would do about it.  It’s not like I rolled out of bed today and just started having these thoughts.  I care very much about these things and have thought about them for many years and written about possible scenarios in dealing with tyranny in many forms.    

But it’s one thing to think about these things and what we should do about them and see them.  You always hope that you will never have to do anything extreme.  Yet when the option is to bend the knee to compliance or to live a life on your terms, that decision shouldn’t have to be a deadly one, not in America.  But there it is in the illegal president Joe Biden, a person put in the White House under voter fraud created by a manufactured virus from China, which was a declaration of war by a foreign country.   And we are supposed to wear masks, get vaccines to bioweapons forced upon us, and do so with smiles on our faces.  No, I think my recent book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business was just the correct answer at just the right time.  I would give them away for free if it were possible.  But I would refer to that book for ways to deal with this current crisis.  I would also guide you to read The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates.

Additionally, I would encourage you to find alternatives to the compliance mandate of a vaccine card, proving that you have a shot.  If they are going to impose a fraud on you in the form of a president who is writing fake executive orders, we can do the same in response.  But where all else fails, take the exemption and let the government choke on it.  They crossed the line on this one in a big way.  Their intent is what the problem is.  They should never have used our businesses as a means to acquire power for themselves, to begin with, and to do it the way they have with this issue was a bridge too far and showed the teeth of grandma that Little Red Riding Hood should have noticed in the beginning.

Herbie was a Communist: Learning how our corporations in America were taken over by the United Nations

Herbie was a Communist

I had to write the book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business because I had read hundreds of self-help books and books on business strategy, administration, and process improvement, and they were all wrong in some little way.  Wrong is, of course, a point of view, but when we wonder why our companies have become so “woke,” we must understand why.  We must understand why the Chamber of Commerce types are so bent toward the United Nations and not the United States, and we must know how we arrived where we are, how to get out of it, and toward more of an America First policy.  One of the most important books that are most popular among process improvement consultants in business is called The Goal.  If you go into the office of most business consultants, you will find it in their libraries. It’s been out since the 1980s and has paralleled the Lean Manufacturing methods that have migrated out of Toyota Management Processes and TQCs and all kinds of Eastern business philosophy acronyms.  Through a combination of The Goal, and books like The Machine that Changed the World, which evolved out of Deming consulting in Japan, Americans have been tricked into going against their nature of innovation and aggression as a capitalist enterprise.  Out of a United Nations desire for accepting global commerce, global supply chains, and global thinking, these methods have been introduced to American business for all kinds of strictly political reasons.  Because of that trend, I felt there needed to be an American answer.  I have been teaching the methods talked about in all these books for over three decades, and given where the world is today, its time to point out the flaws in the thinking and assert ourselves in western civilization toward the objectives of retaking the leadership role in the world, from an America First perspective.

I enjoy The Goal; it is an excellent thought experiment for managers looking to improve their processes.  It can work fine if the only other alternative is chaos.  From my perspective, and this has always been my opinion of the work, it was a soft sell of communism to the corporate world from the author selling capitalism but functioning as a Marx-driven radical.  So, it’s no surprise that executives who read the book and study it in detail think they are performing as profit-driven capitalists. They are drooling communists tricked into a global conspiracy based on their lack of knowledge of history and global intentions.  The Goal is all about solving plant-wide manufacturing problems, but in essence, it’s about Constraint Theory, knowing your constraints, and working within those limits toward ultimate efficiency.  I have a radically different view of Constraint Theory than most everyone else in the world, especially people who practice consulting primarily because they don’t understand the essence of what a “constraint” is or what the history of acquiring it was. 

In The Goal, we are told a story about a bunch of Boy Scouts hiking a 10-mile trail, and among them is an overweight kid struggling to keep up with the others by the name of Herbie.  The story’s theme is that all the other hikers need to realize that Herbie is their constraint and that they should have been measuring what they can do as a group based on what Herbie could do. Otherwise, they were supposed to bend their processes to the limits of their weakest link.  So it is said in business, figure out who your “Herbie” is, and you’ll understand your actual capacity.  Well, this has always bothered me.  My way of dealing with the “Herbies” of life is to tell him to lose weight or find someone faster and more robust than he is to do the job.  But you see, what is taught in corporate politics is that Herbie isn’t to be discriminated against.  There are all kinds of woke rules to protect people like Herbie from being pushed out of their comfort zone.  Labor unions particularly seek out to employ people like Herbie, natural constraints that slow down a process.  Never is the emphasis on speeding something up.  So, by default, when corporate leaders read books like The Goal and The Machine that Changed the World, they believe that they are in the business of managing their constraints in diminishing increments.  Not to seek to improve those constraints.  But to live with them.

In a roundabout way, the government has brought communism into our corporate cultures in this way then used that compliance culture to attack our Constitutional parameters for which a society functions.  All “at will” employment thus falls under some form of communist control that we all accept in increments because most of us must work somewhere, and as we do, we lower our guard to these subtle attacks on our way of government on the front end.  Then in corporate culture, instead of hiring managers to improve the Herbies of the world, we hire managers and CEOs to mitigate against the compliance mandates that government imposes on us through excessive rules and regulations.  Now you can see why the Chamber of Commerce organizations across America were against any vaccine freedoms for individuals.  They wish to protect an organization’s ability to defend themselves from more government compliance by backdooring the American Constitution through a company’s HR department.  What makes my book different from all other books on this subject matter is that I specifically deal with these kinds of challenges because nobody I have read has ever gone to these levels of thinking on the issue.  It’s one thing to identify your constraints and, in using Lean Manufacturing, getting everyone in an organization to understand what reality is.  But in The Goal, determining reality is accepting that Herbie is an overweight kid who has a hard time walking 10 miles on a hike.  But my attitude is that Herbie needs to lose the weight to keep up with the other kids on that hike.  The faster kids who can walk the 10 miles should not be penalized.  That is why The Goal is communist propaganda, whether it was intended to be or not. 

Nobody, especially most Chambers of Commerce, wants to think of themselves as communists.  They think of communists as authoritarian overlords in a military uniform in some broke Central American countries or failed Russia.  But the way the work of Karl Marx drove communism survived into this new age remix was to appear as a capitalist boon but to use the mask of global trade and global partnerships to spread communism around the world, as they had always planned.  Just change the name of communism to capitalism and make it appear that the effort was to increase profits, not to hinder productivity by giving the means of production over to the government to control. You have your modern scam unfolded before you.  And I intend to show people how to get out of that mess.  It’s not easy to change the culture of something so embedded in our thoughts and actions.  But that’s what The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business does.  The Herbie story is just the tip of the iceberg.   It goes much deeper than what we’ve talked about here.  But it’s a start.

We Have to Stand Up to our Bullies: Mean Tweets were what kept peace in the world

We Have to Stand Up to Bullies

I know it from years of professionalism, and most people with common sense understand it, too; you don’t sacrifice effectiveness for niceness.  Now in a leadership role, I think the most effective communication is with honey rather than vinegar.  People are more willing to do things in their life of their own free will if given a chance.  However, they often need leadership to help them figure out what that is.  And they often need a kick in the pants to reside beyond their sense of laziness to aim for higher things in life.  It is up to leadership to define the goals of an organization.  How people get on board with that strategy is up to them.  But complacency and drag assing are not options.  Often there will be resistance to the goals established by a leader, and sometimes, they will have to employ methods of motivation that might be boisterous or otherwise.  This is not the same as being a bully.  Our culture understands this subtle nature well; we’ve seen it in movies like Back to the Future.  We all have our Biffs in life and could cheer on George McFly when he punched the bully in the face at the end of the movie to win his future wife and start a good life for himself.  We see it every year in The Christmas Story where Ralphie gets tired of getting picked on by a group of bullies coming home from school, and he beats the crap out of one of them, which solved that problem forever.  In my own life, I poked a big-time bully in the eye with a pair of scissors when I was in the first grade.  I had to, and yes, I got into a lot of trouble.  But you can bet that it was worth it; it changed many things for me for the better.  There are many bullies in the world, and the focus of our academia has been to avoid conflict, which has only empowered them.  And it was the wrong approach.  From his years of experience, Trump understood what leadership was supposed to look like, and we saw it daily in what was called “mean Tweets.” But look what happened in the world when he could no longer provide those mean Tweets; when Twitter took down his account and through election fraud, he was removed from office.  How is the world doing now?

Even George McFly Learned His Lesson

We all had our stories of bullies when we were young, and we either dealt with it or looked for some protection in group behavior to hide from them.  And yes, it’s that simple in the world.  Those who never learned to fight back against their bullies joined groups such as political parties to do their dirty work for them.  It is clear to all that the Democrat Party has offered a chance to be a bully on their behalf with collective salvation.  We see it in our businesses when consensus-building exercises stifle any attempts to impose work standards by a strong leader.  People who want to hide their timidity usually do so by hiding in groups, and from there, much evil is launched.  Humans trying to avoid this reality have built every part of their civilization around the idea of a democracy for just this very reason, to hide their lack of courage, leadership, and zeal for day-to-day life.  With a democracy, pack hunting, they believe they can hide their soft souls from the world and do OK, just as long as they are not exposed as phonies.  They go to school to get pieces of paper that tell the world that they have proven their worth academically.  They join clubs so that others will say they are notable within the context of the group.  They do anything and everything to hide the fact that when they had a chance to punch their version of a bully in the face, they didn’t, and they grow up bowing to every kind of corruption that there is because they essentially are terrified of conflict.

But most people understand the value of leadership, so we put President Trump in office because he had a reputation of standing up to bullies and fighting back.  We saw it on television and read about it in the media for several decades, so we gave him a chance, and it worked out great.   America First was a plan people could rally behind.  The world was not acting aggressively toward the United States in any way.  Trump had brought peace to the world one mean Tweet at a time and survived what aggressions were thrown his way by an endless stream of media and activist groups.  It didn’t matter, Trump was successful every day he was in office, and the world was better off for it.  Many who didn’t like him felt the way they did because they were averse to conflict, not that Trump did anything wrong.  People felt that Trump should have been more “presidential,” which is just short of saying, “we want to steal your lunch money, so let us do it.” It said more about the state of other people’s minds than it did of Trump.  People showed by electing him twice that they wanted leadership in the world, not the collective shield of group-oriented behavior.  People in America wanted to win at life, and to do that, leadership needs to be present to set the objectives.  And once those objectives were set, people also needed to be pushed to achieve those goals.  We had that type of President over the last four years, and America was winning.  Look what happened in just seven months after it was taken away.  The world is literally on fire from every quarter of it. 

Ralphie Gets Its!

We could talk all day about the malcontents around the world who want a weak American president.  Without leadership, the bullies from every quarter of existence emerged to push people around, and a kind of tribalism that is entirely destructive occurs.  It is the most understudied aspect of liberalism that there has ever been, the need for individuals to stand up to bullies not to join groups to seek protection from them points to the ultimate failure of their plight.  The world and everything in it needs leadership that pushes individuals toward greatness.  Not where groups provide refuge only to become bullies themselves spreading evil upon the earth.  There is nothing good or just about a Democrat Party who protects the weak and meek by allowing them to join the masses to become the bullies themselves.  And there is nothing good about a Republican Party who lets them do it the way George McFly did in Back to the Future.   Allowing evil to grow is just as bad as perpetrating it yourself.  With that said, I do not doubt that we are learning our lesson right now.  Even if they weren’t Trump supporters before, many people are craving the mean Tweets of the Trump administration.  It was better to win in the world than cower in the corner and hope that something terrible didn’t happen.  We have to stand up to the bullies of the world, and we can’t become bullies ourselves along the way.  Being a leader is not the same as being a bully.  Our academic system needs to learn that for future prosperity.  But in the meantime, mean Tweets or whatever their replacement becomes will do just fine.

The Alliance Between Big Pharma and Government: Covid is all about using you to promise market saturation

Government Creating Market Stabilization for Big Pharma

With Covid, you can smell the rat easily.  Sure, some people like to be scared; they want to go to haunted houses, ride roller coasters at amusement parks to get a thrill and watch scary movies.  And the nightly news produces almost exclusively scary stories because that causes people to tune in, partly for the thrill and partly for the comfort that bad things are happening to other people and not themselves.  In all of that is how we were scammed with Covid and the ridiculous protocols from the CDC.  Some people don’t want to see it because of their human desire to be scared.  But also, they don’t want to deal with it because they are too lazy to think.  However, if you’re going to see a big government scam, all you have to do is follow the money.  Ultimately, we can say that Covid has been a lot of conspiracies, and I’d say there is truth in most of them. It’s a form of control by the government over mass populations to see if they can get away with it. It’s been a chance to shape politics by steering mass society into virtual pens of control in experimental ways.  It’s been a way to commit voter fraud, which most of the Democrat party plans to use always to stay in power.  Just consider why they want open borders with illegal immigration. So they can overload votes with new voters who might be dumb enough to vote for Democrats who play Santa Claus every day, giving away things that aren’t theirs to give.  But mostly, what Covid has been, is a guaranteed market for the pharmaceutical companies to land their products. Politicians have had to pave the way for them because of their constant need for campaign donations.  By doing big pharma a massive favor by guaranteeing market saturation for big pharma products, the government plays the role through the legislative process as market mall cop in ensuring that everyone does exactly what big pharma needs them to do.

Sure, it’s happened many times before, so many times that many of us have just come to expect it.  The auto insurance industry essentially did the same thing when I was younger.  These days we all accept it as logical, but when I learned to drive a car, insurance while driving was an option.  If you had a wreck while going and it was your fault, then you had considerable trouble.  But you had a choice.  That led big auto insurance companies to lobby the politics of their state to offer relief from the many lawsuits that were not being collected from those who could never pay for the damages they committed while driving cars.  So, states like Ohio passed laws where every driver on the road would have to maintain insurance and show proof of it when called upon.  It was never a question of if a driver had insurance; it was just showing it when a cop pulled you over.  There are many other examples of this kind of thing where the government wrote laws that ultimately helped various businesses. Still, the insurance industry is one of the most obvious.  When politicians and insurance companies saw how the American people accepted these impositions against their freedoms so quickly, they were inspired to do it on other things.  Pretty soon, seat belts were made legal.

You had to click it or get a ticket.  Of course, insurance companies pushed this because they wanted to close up their payout margins.  They were given by the government a stable slice of the pie. The insurance industry didn’t have to drop their prices to earn a customer; the government handed it to them on a silver platter.  Now the insurance carrier wanted to make sure that their payouts were less, not more.  It was better for them to have a driver live in car accidents because dying was too expensive.  It is better to keep the driver alive, even if permanently maimed for life, rather than to lose that driver to a death payout if it could be avoided.  Seat Belts were the kind of law that paved the way for what is currently being debated, vaccine passports.  People accepted the logic, and the government made laws that benefited the insurance companies, and everyone was somewhat happy. 

But that’s not what happens; is that everyone stays happy.  Instead, once the government and the insurance industry saw how easily people would give up their freedoms for so-called “good reasons,” such as “safety,” who doesn’t want to live in a “safe” world, then, of course, they wanted to do the same kind of thing with every industry. That’s where the idea of insurance being a socialist right came about.  People accepted that mandatory insurance to drive a car was acceptable, so why not mandate that everyone have health insurance?  And then, of course, the government would maintain that insurance, which is the concept behind Obamacare.  Once Obamacare got involved, and the government stuck its nose into the 5th largest market in the American economy, trouble arrived for growth.  We heard less about stem cells and regenerative growth as medical innovations moved from new ideas to ensure insurance companies got paid.  And of course, competition in the medical industry stagnated as health providers could essentially charge whatever they wanted, including the big pharma companies.  Now they had guaranteed customers given to them by the government.  All they had to do was give some donations to critical politicians in their states, and they’d be on easy street.  It worked, people put up with it, and that’s the mess we find ourselves in today. 

Now you can see why the government mandates for vaccinations come into play over Covid.  For the first time, we have allowed the government to interfere with the natural immune system of human beings and have put the government in charge of maintaining health.  In all other times, people would get sick with the common cold or with some variation of SARS, Covid, or whatever.  People would take a few days off work to get better or not contaminate their co-workers, and life would go on.  But with Covid, something that turned out for most people to be a common cold with mild symptoms, the government got involved in managing the virus ultimately.  From social distancing, altering economic activity in very destructive ways, and the voodoo science of wearing a mask instead of using actual science, such as Regeneron cocktails and Hydroxychloroquine to fight the virus off.  This time, the government, with its partners in crime, Google, Facebook, and Twitter, moved to control information to create demand for a vaccine where they wanted every single person in the world to get it, no matter what the effect was.  For the first time in history, the world’s governments working together wanted to provide a guaranteed market for the big pharma vaccines for all kinds of mysterious reasons, many that we will learn about in the years to come.  We know that the government is attempting to tamper with markets for the advantage of the pharmaceutical companies.  Essentially for the promise that campaign donations will flow their way and everyone will be happy, just as they were when auto insurance was made mandatory.  We have all shown these dangerous liaisons that we will gladly put up with being pushed around, so why would they think otherwise? That is how innovation is killed when we allow politics to distribute money without merit to undeserving markets.  That is precisely what is going on with Covid, the masks, and the offered solutions to a made-up problem, vaccine mandates for all.   It’s not to save lives.  It’s all about control and making it easier for pharmaceuticals to maintain their markets for products without the worry of competition.  They suddenly don’t have to earn your dollars; the government is giving it to them unearned.

The Good Guy J.D. Vance: There’s a long way to go, but he’s certainly one you’d like to see get there

A Good Guy, J.D. Vance

Nancy Nix continues to be a great example of influence leadership in Butler County, Ohio.  I attribute the success of any endeavor, whether it’s a successful business or a political community, to the strength of its influence leadership, which I spend a lot of time talking about in my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business.  Influence leaders are not the ones who put a spotlight on themselves; but instead, they work as leaders in ways that aren’t traditionally measured for the success of any enterprise.  And that’s what Nancy does, and how I finally was able to meet J.D. Vance after many other opportunities to do so came up short.  I had wanted to meet J.D. since he is running for the Rob Portman senate seat.  I had been writing about how much I like Jane Timken in that role.  I had liked Josh Mandel because I know him as a Tea Party guy.  But I’m not crazy how he has managed the pressure once he did get essential seats.  Timken just picked up an endorsement of Kristi Noem, which meant a lot to me, but the big drawback there is that she’s too close to Mike DeWine.  When I have talked to her personally, she is quick to explain the complexity of that relationship.  I give her some room there because everyone has to have some representation as a party leader even if she doesn’t agree with everything they do.  But the question is, to what effect would other things be accepted in accepting a few screwballs here and there?  Some other candidates for this Rob Portman Senate race are not viable, likely under 10%ers who just muddy the water.  But J.D. Vance is one whom I’ve wanted to like because I liked his book Hillbilly Elegy when it first came out, and I have thought he did a great job in the media covering that book and talking about Trump’s White House.  Yet he seemed too good, so I have had questions for him that you could only tell upon meeting someone, and until Nancy managed to get us together, I would have never otherwise known. 

When reading the Hillbilly Elegy, I had thought that it was precisely people like J.D. Vance who should be managing our affairs in government.  After all, he checked all the boxes; he was a lawyer trained at Yale, worked in the tech industry, was a Marine, and rose from the ashes of Middletown, Ohio, which is literally in my back yard to move into great things of personal achievement. They made an interesting Netflix movie about his life and family based on the book, and I wondered if his wife was as sweet and understanding in real life as she was in the book and movie.  As it turned out, she was.  And when meeting J.D., you can tell without a shadow of a doubt that he is a good guy.  A very good person and the reason for it is that he had a good family.  Sure, the Hillbilly Elegy was about severe dysfunction at certain levels. Vance’s mother is now known so well for her history of substance abuse.  He had a wild childhood that crushes most kids in most families, most of the time.  As J.D. says in his book, he is astonished to come from his childhood and into this new life as a normal person.  I don’t think I am too surprised that J.D. is such a good person because even with all the dysfunction with his mother, he had a very good family otherwise.  Many people inside the Beltway politics don’t know that those from the mountains of Kentucky and West Virginia, on down into Tennessee and Virginia, are pretty intelligent.  They have been ridiculed and made fun of in every way that society can make fun of a people.  But I’ve known them all my life, and I have had family members go through the same kind of thing as J.D. has.  Luckily my parents were rock solid, but I have cousins and aunts and uncles who were every bit as troubled as J.D. Vance’s mother was.  It often comes from being too smart for their own good, which gets them into trouble, and they turn to drugs to shut out the voices of logic that run counter to a crazy world.  Reality is just a little too real for them, and they collapse on themselves.  But in J.D. Vance’s story, his strong and deep family is pretty standard among the people I know, and yes, they are Trump voters.  They listen to Alex Jones in the garage through a rebel radio network.  I have family, in fact, that still lives down in the areas of Kentucky, such as Slade and Buckhorn, who are so suspicious of census workers that often those government workers disappear, never to be heard from again. 

I had a few copies of the Hillbilly Elegy; I bought the updated paperback when it came out after the Netflix film was released, and J.D. had added the new afterword at the back of the book.  There he explains that he took his book proceeds and bought the property down in Jackson, Kentucky, where his grandparents were buried, and stated that he wanted to preserve the land so that his kids could enjoy it as he did.  I brought that book with me for him to sign at our meeting, which he did.  Yes, J.D. Vance is a really good and sincere person.  He is the real deal.  But my concern was how would he hold up under the pressure of politics once the honeymoon was over and his Mr. Smith Goes to Washington moment was over.  After all, it’s not a question as to whether he can get elected.  J.D. has some great campaign people.  He has great fundraising and support.  He is great at television and other forms of communication.  He has a supportive wife.  You can check all the positives.  Is he tough? Well, he had to be to come out of childhood without being a mess.  Can he stand up to corruption?  I think he has no tolerance for corruption and can afford to stand up to it, knowing that he has a good family to lean on no matter what happens in his life.  So, I asked him the question I wanted to ask, why I needed to meet him. “So what will make you different than Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, other Mr. Smith Goes to Washington types who get into the Senate with great intentions only to get buzz-sawed in that corrupt culture?” And he said the only thing that could be the correct answer; he said, “well, it’s going to take a coalition of about 8 or 9 people, and from there, we can begin to turn the tide.” It was good to hear that he understood that beyond just campaign talk.  Everyone has great ideas when they are trying to get elected.  But very few know what to do once they get there.

J.D. Vance on the Warroom

J.D. Vance was ready for the buzz-saw.  His wife was there, and I could see her look; it was the look of a supportive wife who would have enjoyed being anywhere but there because all the handshaking was not her thing.  But in her was that same kind of unconditional and dependable love that J.D. had with his Mamaw.  How do I know, because I have a wife like that, and I had a grandmother much as J.D. did.  Appalachia women from the mountains and the wild men they married and tamed.  It’s a Middletown, Hamilton, Ohio kind of thing.  And when you find a wife who understands, then it can make a person nearly invincible.  And for those reasons and more, J.D. Vance is a good option for that much-needed Senate seat. There’s a long way to go in the race yet. Still, I would love for a person like J.D. Vance to fill such a seat when the world is desperately hungry for those kinds of people to manage our government with influence leadership and a tremendous personal foundation for truth and justice for all.  I want to see how all these candidates hold up under the pressure in the upcoming months, but I can at least say now, I am cheering for J.D. Vance.  I hope to see him intact at the finish line.

Lakota Votes for Mask Mandates: The squeaky wheel gets the grease

The Lakota School Board trying to vote on Mask Mandates

As it is everywhere, the health directors, national and local, want their power back. Still, the governors in many states don’t want to return to the kind of authoritarian rule that gave health departments so much power during the first year of Covid.  In Butler County, Ohio, where I live, the health director and bureaucratic officials have been working wherever they can to intimidate businesses and government establishments into CDC compliance for the sheer desire of wanting to boss someone around.  So, of course, they are putting pressure on several local school boards in Butler County to implement mask mandates.  In the satire above, which isn’t far from the truth, the Lakota school board is trying to figure out how to deal with the health director ahead of the meeting on August 23rd, 2021.  The Lakota school system is being pressured by outrageous compliance to CDC guidelines or self-imposed mask mandates. It’s a rock and a hard place for Lakota. They either deal with the wrath of the Butler County Health officials, or they deal with the anger of the furious parents.  And for this school board, at Lakota, it is way beyond their ability to deal with leaving them to pander to the squeaky wheel.  So if you as a parent don’t want masks on your kids while in school, you better get to that meeting and be that squeaky wheel.  Otherwise, the underhanded tactics of the health department are going to play their games of tyranny to establish authoritarian rule. 

Of course, no matter what you think about Covid, there is zero to less proof that masks do anything but make the situation worse.  That stupidity is for adults to sort out, but children should never be victimized to wear masks based on such flimsy science.  If people want to wear them, have at it.  Just as a casual observation, I’ve seen cultures wearing masks in Asian countries for years, and it’s always more about compliance than health.  This attempt to mask the American population is just more of that imposition of eastern cultures on western cultures, just as the Beatles have been trying to do for years and many thousands of other sources attempting to tell us in the west that yielding to authority is the way to solve problems.  No, it’s not.  I had my family at the zoo recently, and they were trying to push the latest from the CDC, encouraging people to wear masks.  Only a few dumb fools were doing so.  My wife and I went to Costco to get a hot dog and a drink for our date night, and they were encouraging people to wear masks, forcing their employees to do so to put that peer pressure on people.  But guess what, most people were not wearing the stupid masks, and I felt sorry for the dumb fools who fell for it.  Yet all the trouble starts with these crazy lunatics in the local health departments who are hungry for their mall cop powers to be restored to them by governors who have lost their ability.

Andy Beshear, the governor of Kentucky, has been a disaster.  He wants to force children to wear masks in school, but the supreme court now challenges him after William Bertelsman granted a restraining order on Beshear.  These kinds of fights are happening all over the country, especially in Florida.  The trend is against the tyrants, the health officials.  Now that people have seen the game, there is no public appetite for the mask mandates.  The federal government has not made its case for why masks should be used.  They are hot, they smell bad and are gross, and they display a kind of anti-science that some backwater countries would implement as a means to solving problems.  And people are sick of them.  Even people who might be liberal are not wearing the masks if they can get away with it.  But all those places mentioned, Costco, the zoo, amusement parks, and the like, are feeling pressure from the compliance cultures to implement that stupidity, which is how the schools feel pressure to comply.  But the attack against our children is reprehensible, and it deserves to be fought with everything we have to fight with.  These school boards will cave if the parents don’t get involved.  Edgewood schools in Butler County have struggled with this issue for weeks, and the parents have spoken up.  Monroe is also going through tribulations.  If Lakota falls, the rest of them will follow.  And that’s the game the health directors want.  They want to rule in silence, from their offices using a phantom menace to scare everyone into some ridiculous authority rule.  So the voices have to be heard at the school board meetings. Otherwise, the school boards will yield to the pressure. 

Watching people wear these masks the second time around, who are in the extreme minority in public, you can almost see the deadness in their eyes.  That desire to comply with authority because they are too lazy to think is a public health crisis.  They are more dangerous to society than any virus because their willingness to comply encourages these bureaucratic tyrants to grab power as they are now.  Covid did not come out and kill everyone like it was told to us.  There are some heartbreaking stories here and there, but fewer people are dying of Covid than are getting killed in car accidents, and people don’t stop driving cars over every crash.  For most Americans, Covid is an acceptable risk.  They might stay home from work for a few days and get over it if they get it.  They want alternatives like a Regeneron Covid Cocktail or a dose of Hydroxychloroquine.  They may use ultraviolet light to kill the virus, a legitimate method of managing viruses, especially UVC light.  Science is great, and there are methods we all know about now.  But this dumb method of wearing a mask is as unscientific and barbaric as anything government sciences have ever come up with.  If public schools are ineffective, why would anybody expect Dr. Fauci and government science to get it right with Covid?  They are either treacherous lunatic terrorists for a new global order, or they are dumb as hell.  Or perhaps, a mixture of both.  But putting masks on kids and ruining their lives with the bad decisions of power-hungry health officials would make bad parents out of all of us.  Kids don’t deserve this stupidity.  It’s up to all of us as adults to at least protect kids from government absurdity, starting in our schools.  And for Lakota, while you still can, you better let the school board know how you feel.  Because if left to their own devices, they will yield to the Butler County health officials and their power grabs from the CDC to put the government in charge of our health, which they have proven entirely incompetent to handle.  They weren’t effective the first time around, and now that we’ve had time to reflect on the mistakes of 2020, why would anybody fall for it a second time?  What we are up against is sheer stupidity and nothing less.

Ohio is Number One in Corruption: Jim Renacci wants to be the Ron DeSantis of the state to fix that

Wind Turbans in Ohio, part of the progressive push to change the state into Green Energy

It’s not murky for me at all.  Mike DeWine screwed up as governor of Ohio. He must go. He needs to be primaried, and the Republican brand in Ohio restored to honor before a general election where a Democrat will have to be defeated at the ballot box for control over our state.  The behavior of Democrats in the House and Senate indicates that they have a plan.  That plan is to exploit Ohio as the number one state in the category of corruption and to use that to implement their changes toward even more progressive agenda desires, which ironically has caused most of the problems so far.  DeWine has been hiding his vast incompetence behind the Covid crises, like many in government have, and now it’s gotten Ohio Republicans in trouble, and that situation needs a fast solution.  And one of the first Republicans to offer that solution and throw his hat in the ring has been Jim Renacci.  I was happy to have a chance to talk to Jim Renacci a bit this past week one on one. It’s the first time I’ve had that chance since his run for Senate against Sherrod Brown a few years prior.  Renacci has an exciting story which I touch on in the video above, and I had thought for a while, well before he announced that he would officially run for governor, that Jim would be suitable for it.  His pitch is essentially to be the Ron DeSantis of Ohio, open up markets and opportunities, and bring to the state good management that is no-nonsense and productive.  But more than anything, he wants to clean up the corruption and repair the Republican brand tainted by Mike DeWine and John Kasich, both progressives who opened the door to all this corruption, to begin with. 

I thought Jim was joking when he told me that Ohio was the number one state out of all 50 states in corruption.  That didn’t seem possible to me, but sure enough, I went home and looked it up, and that is the case as of 2021.  When DeWine was running for governor, many Tea Party groups were already saying that DeWine would be a corrupt governor, but people were willing to give him a chance.  As it turned out, they were right, and DeWine has essentially run as a Democrat most of the years that he’s been in office.  To hide his many missteps, he has turned to Covid to rescue him as many blue-state governors have, and that was, of course, to conceal the underlying corruption.  That is the obvious problem when a governor who is supposed to drive on the right side ends up on the left.  A collision with oncoming traffic is inevitable, and that’s what happened with the FirstEnergy debacle in Ohio that Mike DeWine has his hands all over.  The net result is that Democrats are currently planning to exploit these collisions and take seats in the House and Senate because of the corruption and capture the governor race with a damaged DeWine.  So Democrats currently aren’t willing to make any deals with Republicans as they wait out the next election because they can smell the blood in the water. 

I’ve said it before, House Speaker Larry Householder and other Republicans did wrong when they allowed FirstEnergy to pour a lot of money into the Republican Party.  That allowed the FBI to make a bribery case out of the tragedy involving a few nuclear power plants being pushed to shut down.  But things are not always the way they seem.  FirstEnergy was fighting for its life as the Obama administration targeted traditional forms of energy such as coal and nuclear in favor of solar and wind.  I found a few of those ridiculous wind power turbans in Greenville, Ohio, in the video above.  I had seen them all over the United States this year, and it was insulting to see them in Ohio.   A more significant push is going on that is far more corrupt than FirstEnergy trying to buy off politicians like Larry Householder for their survival.  Jim Renacci understands that kind of corruption because he’s been a victim of it himself.  He got into politics as a businessman who had lost his Chevy dealership by that same administration who tampered with the markets to create a change state at GM.  The collapse of General Motors into bankruptcy meant that the government could help restructure them into producing eco-friendly cars, which is what they are presently doing.  The bailout they received from the government was just as corrupt as anything FirstEnergy was involved in.  The difference was that the Obama administration controlled the DOJ.  And when Trump was president, the same radicals were still running the DOJ because he refused to act in such a corrupt way and call them out on their activism.   So now the FBI, run by those prominent government activists, wants to destroy companies like FirstEnergy unless they embrace these new wind and solar Obama initiatives.  They are picking winners and losers, which led to the corruption that eventually involved the many Republicans caught taking money from FirstEnergy so that they could keep their nuclear power plants open. 

I would say that this kind of corruption is going on in all states, and all their legislators are involved in some way or another.  But in Ohio, it’s a Trump state, and it has a target on its back for progressives that go way beyond reasonability.  That means we have to take a stand with this governor race and clean things before the general election vote for governor takes place.  Republicans have to take that step with a governor prospect that can rebuild the party behind an anti-corruption platform, and for me, Jim Renacci is just the right kind of guy for the job.  President Trump likes Jim quite a lot, and a Jim Renacci ticket that is pro-business, anti-corruption, and knows how to stand up to progressive tricks is just the ticket for the current challenges. I’m against corruption of any kind.  I don’t want my state tarnished with any corruption, let alone being number one in the entire country.  That is just embarrassing.  Not acceptable.  So when Jim Renacci sat across the table from me and looked me straight in the eye and told me what he wanted to do with being the Ron DeSantis of Ohio, I was just a little encouraged.  Ron DeSantis is the new gold standard for which all Republican governors should aspire, and if Renacci has that kind of scope for the governor job in mind, well, then that’s something I can get excited about.  So far, other candidates haven’t announced themselves for the governor race, but I don’t think this is something we need to fool around with.  Republicans need to understand the battle plan.  We need to retake the House at the Federal level, and we need a leader to do that.  We need to unite behind that cause and the people who can make that happen.  And we have to repair the corruption problem left in DeWine’s wake.  That will take someone like Renacci, who is dedicated to the cause, can get Trump behind the effort, and is willing to do the job in two steps, repairing the Republican Party, then defeating the Democrat challenger.   It helps when you can talk to someone like Jim to see if they are up for such a big job, and based on my experience, he is.

How To Lie With Statistics: Bill Gates and his big secret

Bill Gates and the Way to Lie with Statistics

I’ve been watching all the press for Vivek Ramaswamy’s new book Woke, Inc: Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam and Mark Livin’s American Marxism, and it has been frustrating.  They are poking around the rim to a much deeper problem, and that’s a baked-in ingredient to the original scam.  And that scam is very much a part of all our lives, a recent invention that touches us at every possible level.  For that very reason, I set the conditions of my recent book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, at a time before the progressive era.  We need real answers to these problems, not just asking the questions. That’s not to say Woke Inc or Mark’s American Marxism are not good books.   They are great books, and everyone should read them.  But they are short on solutions.  We all know that first you have to ask the questions, but like most things in our modern world, the answers are never entirely within reach, and many people spend their whole lives looking for their fulfillment.  But they can’t get it because of a bit of scam that started at the start of the academic age where technology passed over the airwaves and into people’s living rooms.  Where television and advertising attacked people’s intellect in ways they had no previous intellectual defense mechanism.  And an age was created where billionaires and corporations could function in ways that no king of England ever could, through subversion of all national sovereignty hiding behind a façade of free-market capitalism when in fact, the villains are among the worst dictators the world has ever known.  Bill Gates comes to mind.  Gates is a guy who gained a lot of wealth early in his life.  So he replaced the ambitions that typically occupy paying off mortgages and raising children with climate change and vaccination obsessions. Over time, it has warped his mind into a villain for all liberty lovers everywhere. 

I guess I had read it before.  The book was so old that I read it first years ago.  But I didn’t know until recently that Bill Gates had put his blurb of approval on the front cover when the book was released to the public in 1993, at the height of Microsoft’s rise to power.  The book How to Lie with Statistics was initially published in 1954, and much of it reflects a time long forgotten when the average income for most American homes was much lower than it is today.  Seeing one of these modern versions of these books with Bill Gates’ name on it, after all the Covid mess, the election discrepancies, the push for a Green New Deal, the multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure plan, it was to me like a Batman villain leaving behind some hint that the source of the crime was within reach, but that the villain knew people were not smart enough to figure it out.  It was as if Bill Gates was saying, “the answer is right in front of you fools, but you do not have the minds to see it.” His endorsement of this old book by Darrell Huff is pretty much mockery if you look at it in reverse, from the comfort of hindsight.  What Vivek and Mark and many other modern political pundits and writers missed when analyzing contemporary events was that the villains of our day were using the methods of this little obscure book.  Well known among the billionaire activists of the world are books like this, to commit open crimes right in front of our faces.  Rules for Radicals come to mind, as well as The Communist Manifesto.  They have positioned themselves as the most intelligent people on earth who have the most money, so naturally, we assume they know what they are talking about.  But what they want is revenge for being geeks or domination of the world, such as George Soros has always been after.  If there is any law we need in this world if we are not going to have honest elections and put our billionaire in the White House, then we need to eliminate certain kinds of donors whom we know use their money for evil to undo our Constitution.  George Soros certainly falls under that category, but then again, so does Bill Gates. 

Bill Gates little Secret

Lying with statistics didn’t start with those modern terrorists.  Human beings worldwide never really figured out how to filter media such as radio and television once our private time went from fixing tractors to suddenly watching I Love Lucy on tv each week and the ads that accompanied them.  Suddenly, we were inundated with statistics of every kind because statistics told a story, such as how many people like to ride school buses and how much meat men and women eat on Tuesdays.  We never solved the validity of statistics in any society on earth and who tells the story.  What happened to us was that honest people continued to earn honest livings on farms and factories, coming home to their families each day as dutiful Americans. Still, the scum bags, the shysters, and scam artists of every kind and the activists who wanted to rule the world found a new game in town, the art of manipulation through mass media and the ability to lie with statistics so that social movements could be moved toward those who wanted power.  Bill Gates knew what he wanted to do with his life.  He was already rich and could have anything he wanted in the world.  But what his money couldn’t buy was public sentiment for his religion of global warming.  But he could use his money to influence opinion with all kinds of statistics, and that is how it started with him and where we find ourselves to this very day. 

How the scam works

All the villainy we have seen involving Covid-19 is described in the book How to Lie With Statistics.  Without question, Bill Gates endorsed this reprint of the book as a kind of hint, a game he was playing with the world, a catch me if you can sort of thing.  He did it again in 2015 when he put the book on his summer reading list with other books about vaccines and other troubling issues.  It’s an easy book to read; it’s certainly not complicated.  Other books like it have been written since, yet Bill Gates picked this one to endorse personally.  Not exactly the book of a modern genius. Instead, it’s like the Rosebud from Citizen Kane, where Gates would destroy the world to save it from human beings and their statistical improbabilities of climate change, only to leave everyone confused as to how it all happened.  But Gates can laugh and look in the mirror, declaring that he initially gave us all the hints.  But we were too stupid to see it, so in that way, he can then transform all his guilt onto us.  After all, he was the honest patron who told us how evil he was and what he planned to do.  It was our fault that we let him do it.  Do you see how that works?

All the math on Covid was wrong, purposely misleading just as they say to do in How To Lie With Statistics.  When colds used to be counted by deaths, this new method measured everything in cases.  Like the example in the picture of the farms that increased over a five-year period, it wasn’t farmed property that changed.  It was just that the rules were changed to give more properties the qualification of being a farm.  What governments worldwide did following Bill Gates and his money began to measure things differently regarding colds.  They did it because they wanted Bill Gates funding, something that Gates had the money to give away even though he could care less about any of it.  Money could buy for Bill Gates love or homes.  But what he wanted was influence over power-hungry people who didn’t care what statistics Bill Gates gave them.  For a fee, they’d take it and run with it, and in so doing, people like Gates were able to purchase up most of the media culture.  And people never noticed faulty statistics from honest ones because everything was hidden behind a common assumption in all media, that other people more intelligent than we were made all the statistics we heard about.  But what the gag and crime were always meant to hide was that the people making the statistics weren’t so smart.  They were vicious and evil.  But to mask it from themselves, they even gave us the method they planned to use against us, to our doom.  But they knew we would not even look at it and would fall for their scams anyway.

People are Slow to Realize Things: But they aren’t going back to sleep

It takes People a Long Time

So, we’re a few days into the election fraud presentation by Mike Lindell at the Cyber Symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and there have been plenty of bombs dropped.  There was election fraud.  At the same time as the Symposium began, Governor Cuomo resigned from his position in New York over the many sexual harassment claims made against him.  I would argue that he had to resign and that there were sexual harassment issues, to begin with, to divert attention away from the worst crimes of Covid deaths that occurred in New York.  All these blue state governors will continue to be picked apart for mistakes they made during Covid.  Sexual harassment and resignation are a lot better to deal with than murder committed by political necessity.  But the timing couldn’t have been more obvious.  A big juicy story was happening simultaneously as the public trial led by Mike Lindell on massive election fraud fronted by China to steal the 2020 election.  It illustrated an obvious problem that is keen on everyone’s mind.  Knowing what we know about election fraud, what are we going to do about it, an open war with China because of what we did?  Can we even think of something like that with our house so divided? After all, Democrats seem perfectly fine with China, so we must have an internal civil war first before we can even ask about foreign hostilities.  For most people, it’s time for pre-season football.  They want to think about anything but any of these things.  This is why the criminals expected to get away with the crime in the first place. 

What’s worse, the evidence points to Dr. Fauci and his involvement in the Wuhan Lab in China and their deliberate tampering of a coronavirus into the transmissibility straight into the human population.  The more Dr. Doom has worked the ropes to inspire mask mandates and a return to Covid protocols, the more guilty he has looked.  Things were so nice back then, where the government was in complete control.  They want so much to return to those days.  All the talk about the Sturgis Bike Rally is a super spreader when in reality, they only had a few hundred cases last year out of half a million people.  It’s laughable, yet they are reaching for anything to divert the fact that U.S. taxpayers helped fund the bioweapon of coronavirus through the Fauci-controlled NIH.  And now, thanks to Lindell’s Cyber Symposium, we can see enough voter irregularities to understand China tampered with our elections in a big way.  Given the historic approach provided by the Democrats against Trump and the sheer thought that Russians might have tampered with our elections in the United States, what in the world are we supposed to do with the evidence we have that China did.  Russia was pure speculation, and we all watched the circus.  But now, we have the packet captures that tell the story of China declaring war against the United States by establishing a coup of our president. We have an intelligence community that we also pay for with taxes that let it happen.  Or should we say, encouraged it to happen for their reasons? 

The trouble is people like you and me; dear reader is on the front of things like this.  We understand this story, but many out there who are on the blue pill plan, really want to fill out their fantasy football picks and to get some chicken wings somewhere.  They must get their kids to soccer practice; they don’t have time or room for these kinds of issues.  But they are, by sheer audacity getting exposure, and they are learning.  They are getting wise to the questions about their government that many of us have been asking for years.  It just takes them a while to get there.  But they will get there.  That is why suddenly there is a push to go full Green New Deal, full Squad Socialism.  To go all Bernie Sanders all the time.  Democrats have been playing around with communism and socialism for most of our lives.  But they haven’t gone all-in until now.  They hope to hide all these massive mistakes; I’d call them crimes before regular everyday people catch on.  When ordinary people realize what happened in the 2020 election, they are going to be mad.  When they learn that China unleashed the coronavirus on America to torpedo our economy in an election year and that Dr. Fauci helped them do it with Bill Gates blowing in the sails of destruction, they are going to be mad. 

The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business

The government hopes to survive if they can turn America into an authoritarian state completely before that point.  But I can say that the masses are already onto it.  The Sturgis Rally has over 700,000 people, and they aren’t wearing masks.  And people are more openly talking about election fraud in everyday conversation now. It’s losing its conspiratorial edge and is becoming mainstream acceptability.  That means for the government that their goal of vaccinating a majority of the population isn’t going to happen.  A majority of the people are laughing at directives from the government, and people are getting more comfortable at not accepting that Joe Biden was legally elected.  Admitting to the problem is the first step in solving the issue, and people are going through that process now.  While many of us have been there for a while, we are watching a substantial majority of the population refusing to listen to the new mask mandates and fear peddling that got us all in trouble in the first place.  While it might all look so scary, I would offer that it has been a time long coming.  If Trump were still in office, many of these corrupt forces would still operate in the background.

Mike Lindell has a good point which has been made in his Symposium over and over again.  If Trump had won, everyone would have just gone back to sleep.  With China removing Trump from office, they advanced things too fast for the comfort of the American people, and now everything is collapsing.  And not even announcing that a sacrificial lamb in Governor Cuomo is stepping out of power can stop it now. California’s Newsom will be the next to fall.  Then next, Mike DeWine in Ohio will follow; there are many ramifications that the political left doesn’t want to see happening on an entire collision course with reality, and they know it will hurt.  They can only hope that by the time it does, America will be a communist country. 

I wouldn’t say this is a time for panic.  We are simply waiting for the rest of the world to get it, and I see it starting everywhere.  Americans are waking up, ordinary Americans, BW3s attendees, fantasy football players, those types of people.  And that’s why the left is panicking and is in trouble now.  We have all been frogs slow cooking in a hot bowl of water.  Suddenly the water was turned on high to a boil, and now we have been jumping out of that hot water for our self-preservation.  And we can see who has been putting us in that pot to cook, and we’re mad.  I would say it’s about time, and I can’t wait for more to join the chorus of anger.  But at this point, the chain reaction is unleashed, and there is no stopping it now.  And I think I’ll enjoy watching what happens next.  It might be destructive, but it will lead to the restoration of our republic, and there’s nothing terrible about that.
