The United Nations Scam: Using America to do what they can’t, then letting us take the blame for imperialism

Here is the scam of the United Nations summed up nicely, and finally, after nearly a century of manipulations, the Ukraine war revealed it the trick was always to use the United States as the vehicle in the name of social justice to impose on the world a military that the United Nations never had, to do the things they always wanted from the outset. And the United States would get the blame under the banner of imperialism, while the United Nations would get the credit for cleaning up the aftermath. Growing up, I always heard how the political left was so apocalyptic about the Vietnam War and how American imperialism was wrong to impose themselves on the communists there. And how Iraq was all about oil. Or beating Qaddafi in Libya was all about beating down a terrible dictator. The United States was constantly getting pulled into strange wars for strange reasons, which the world hated us for; then, the United Nations would come in in the aftermath and clean up everything and be seen as the good guys. I’ve always thought it was strange, and it wasn’t until this latest war in Ukraine that we could really fully catch the various people behind the curtain pulling the maniacal strings. Because the Trump presidency revealed how easy it was to fix all these global problems without military intervention, and the American military had become the private military of globalism. And for globalism to work, they needed to Unite the Nations of the world through created conflicts that would topple opposition to them, countries that wanted to remain nationalist. But once bankrupt by war, they’d need someone to come along and help them, which is where the United Nations would swoop in to do the job.

In 2010 I sat down with my congressman, John Boehner, at the time and told him I wanted him to get America out of the membership of the United Nations. Of course, he and his aide laughed at this. He stated through his laughter that the United States controlled the United Nations and gave us significant influence around the world. Why would we possibly want to get out of that kind of membership? Well, he didn’t know history. After World War I, many of these globalist forces tried to create the League of Nations, which Americans rejected. They tried to lure America into the effort by instigating war and after pushed the American president and major progressive globalists into helping with the Treaty of Versailles. Ho Chi Minh was the future leader of the communist party in Vietnam. He was working as a bus boy to get close to the signing of the treaty and hoped to appeal to Woodrow Wilson and others to get the French out of Vietnam and restore his country to their national sovereignty. Of course, they didn’t listen and laughed at him. So he went across the street and found the communist party much more receptive. Five decades later, there was war in Vietnam, and America was baited into a conflict there to put down communism, but the real effort was to make a fool of imperialism which made all of Asia essentially a communist zone in the wake of World War II when finally the United Nations was formed.   A pattern had been forming starting with the Treaty of Versailles, and globalism was on the move, with the United States acting as the private military for it. But the goal was never to win or lose. Only to wear out the rulers of various countries so they could topple the regimes and allow the United Nations to be the power brokers in the aftermath. 

Mysteriously right after World War II, Israel was created in 1948, which was a strange idea considering that it hadn’t played much of a role during the war. But as I have talked about, the Freemasonry movement, which is clearly behind globalism in every way that it can be imagined, set in their minds to restore the Temple of Soloman, and the only way to do that was to restore the nation of Israel from the Palastaines, or otherwise, return the promised land from the Canaanites back into Jewish possession. I have spoken elsewhere about the mysterious book that was written by anonymous sources in Russia who put the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in the hands of people like Adolf Hitler and modern Islamic terrorists. Germany was heavily penalized after World War I leaving them bankrupt. Hitler found the book mentioned and became enraged that the Jews wanted to take over the world, so he started his Nazi party to crush them and restore Germany to the nationalism that it thought it deserved.

Meanwhile, the forces of manipulation had their new bad guy, a name that could never be spoken because of his many atrocities, and so the creation of Isreal in 1948 could be justified as obvious rectification to the Jewish people. I’m not against the creation of the Jewish state. I think the Ten Commandments are some of the most important documents ever to be produced by any civilization. But the tampering behind the scenes to make it happen is evident in hindsight, especially. 

And now, much more sloppily, we have Vladimir Putin being baited into attacking Ukraine, and the threat of nuclear war has been tossed around a lot. Ukraine has become the strategic center for globalist expansion, and the issue was forced quickly to the front after Trump was removed from office. It was more than just a little suspicious that Trump’s first impeachment centered around a phone call with the newly elected president of Ukraine, a former comedian now turned into a world leader almost overnight.   But this time, things were rushed too quickly, and the footprints of globalism are obvious. Russia was poked to make the attack over a threat of Ukraine joining NATO. And, of course, America had to fund the whole mess through lots of shady deals, all in the name of helping Ukraine become “free.”  But this time, people were on to the scam, especially after Trump showed that many of the false wars that America had been drug into were not for American interests but for the efforts of globalism. And those getting rich off selling America out didn’t want to be caught. So they conspired to get rid of Trump, to restore conflict around the world to topple nationalist efforts, and to use the United Nations, funded by the United States, into cleanup duty further to spread the reach of their Liberal World Order. And that is why John Boehner laughed at me when I asked him to get us out of the United Nations once he became Speaker of the House a few years later. At that time, I might as well have been Ho Chi Minh trying to appeal to the patriotism of Woodrow Wilson with references to American Independence. But the script was for Ho Chi Minh to get frustrated and join the communists instead and to use communism to destroy national sovereignty and pave the way for eventual United Nations control of the entire world. And in that scam, the war in Ukraine is just the latest effort. But the plan runs deep, and it certainly doesn’t have American independence as the goal. By using America to do all the bad stuff in the world with the intent to set wrongs right, two things happen, the people who do the wrongs in the first place get what they wanted all along. And the blame goes to America for their imperialist objectives so that dismantling it later could be justified. By the time the globalist forces wanted to take control, they would have already used American wealth to take over the world. Then they could blame America for its nationalist desires and see it destroyed like every other country, only then to be governed by the bureaucrats of the Administrative State in the Liberal World Order as the manipulators of history had made it behind the curtain the whole time.

Why I Still Fly My “Trump Won” Flag: The Dow Jones is headed for 25,000 and below, thanks to a stolen presidency

Just as a reminder, I still fly in front of my house a flag that says, “Trump Won” for everyone who needs to know. 2020 was only one of the biggest crimes in history. We allowed an intelligence agency using America as a front for their organization, but connected to globalists everywhere, to steal our vote and give us this piece of garbage Joe Biden as a puppet president. The Dow had just broken 30,000 during Trump’s term. After he was removed from office not by a vote, but by a tampered election, with evidence coming from every direction, the economy started heading in the wrong direction. There is plenty of evidence of election fraud in 2020, but nobody wants to look at it. Nobody wants to admit to it. So I have flown that flag every day for over two years to remind everyone how complicit they are in destroying the world. And that I was not a part of it. I voted for Trump again, and when the current U.S. government made its move to get rid of him, which we can still see the evidence of that with the hostile FBI that has been revealed in its wake, I worked to defend our vote by acknowledging what happened, while everyone else followed their leaders like sheep to their own destruction. After Trump left office, the Dow, through its own momentum, went up a few more thousand points, but the socialist policies of the globalists and the destructive behavior of the American Fed destroyed our thriving economy, and the momentum stopped about a year into the Biden presidency. And now, after a clear recession, which nobody wants to admit to, the Dow is under 30,000 and is headed much lower. And everyone can watch as their 401K plans lose all their value because they did not defend their vote when they needed to, and they allowed this mess to happen by not standing up for what was right when it mattered most. 

Looking at our public education system for its terrible mess, one of the clear takeaways that people seem to have learned was to put up with bad behavior, turn away from the bullies, and if someone steals something from you, to let them have it. I have never accepted that concept when I was in school, and I certainly don’t accept it now. But most people have no backbone. They have no personal courage. And when they get pushed around, they take it. That’s why election fraud on a massive scale occurred in 2020 and cost us President Trump, who was doing a very good job. People who thought Biden could be inserted and everything would just continue as usual were smoking crack. It only took a few months for the inserted Biden administration to start implementing the United Nations goals for destroying America, the stolen wealth, and redistribution they had always planned to implement. Now we are seeing the results. And they try to lie about what those results are. A recession is two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth. We are going on a year of it now. We are in a depression that has been propped up by ignorance and happy talk. The true condition of our economy is as phony as the Biden presidency itself. It wasn’t elected by popular vote; it was taken by force and given its own reality by bad people who were doing the deed. And they thought people were so stupid that they would just take it and shut up, even as they still lie about whether or not we are in a recession. They don’t tell the truth about anything, and the ship is sinking fast. 

I was having dinner with some people along the river in Cincinnati, where the bike path that crosses through the city runs, and they felt right at home because they were from New England. I always remind people, especially regarding zoning laws, that they were created by people trained to think like Europeans. So that is why we have all the roundabouts that are going in everywhere because people studied in college all the European jealousies from what they call the “motherland” and want to implement them all over the United States. I hate slowing down for a ridiculous roundabout. In intersections where you could just fly through at 50 to 60 miles an hour, now you have to slow down to 30 to drive around a stupid circle. They say that studies indicate that traffic flows better with roundabouts, but I hate them. And how did they get into our zoning, the same way that election fraud occurred, through laws and legislation made on the back of a napkin where a bunch of mindless fools just blindly followed the person in front of them? That’s how many of these things happen, and I found it embarrassing to see people from New England talking about how happy they were to see that Cincinnati was such a “progressive” city. They had a silly little bike path that let people ride their bikes without those mean gas-powered cars making so much noise. They liked that it was so quiet on that bike path, so they could listen to mother nature complain about her latest menstrual cycle from planetary bombardment with life-killing space junk that comes our way every 20,000 years. The same forces that gave us roundabouts in America and bike paths are who stole our election in 2020 so that they could make us even more into that garbage pit of Europe.

By flying my flag, I make sure that everyone knows that I’m not one of the dumb people who allowed it to happen, like fools who just believe what someone tells them. People who learned in their public education to follow orders but not to think allowed themselves to be suckered, and you can now see the danger of that behavior. The market economy in America is crashing, and it was done on purpose. And the same fools who played along with the Biden presidency now realize just how stupid that was. These aggressive, jealous European forces who have always wanted to destroy America have been doing it for years by corrupting our rules and regulations behind the scenes. And they lie to our faces when caught, just as they did over the definition of recession. And just as they did over election fraud. You can trace that election fraud to the American intelligence agencies and their desire to preserve the Washington D.C. Swamp for their own reasons. But the Swamp is a creation of Europe, just like roundabouts and the culture of the aristocracy they have always been so in love with. And those who let it happen can watch their 401K plans evaporate before their eyes. The Dow Jones is headed for 25,000 soon. Remember, when Trump took office in 2017, the Dow was at 18,000.   All those trillions of dollars of value may be completely wiped away during the Biden presidency. And who will there be to blame? Well, the idiots who allowed election fraud to happen and did not say anything as Covid was used to destroy American life from the minds of the mindless bureaucrats. The losers who brought us roundabouts have also created a terrible economy because of a stolen election. And the people who just put up and shut up about it are those most guilty. And it’s important to remember who those people were as we continue to watch the economy tank because it was a decision, not a natural occurrence.

Happy We Are Going Back to Mars with Starship: The evidence points to lots of human interaction between the Red Planet and Earth many years in the past

Well, I mean exactly that when I say I’m looking forward to returning to Mars. I do indeed mean, return. I’m very excited for the next SpaceX mission into space with its Starship orbiter. Going to Mars is important, even if the Biden administration isn’t at all excited about it. In fact, the entire Liberal World Order isn’t excited about it, and for a good reason. Options take power away from them, and they want limited options for the human race to give themselves more power. It’s the classic problem of those in communist countries trying to flee those places for freer destinations. That is the same reason the Biden administration and Liberal World Order are generally not excited about commercial space travel. They want a centralized government controlling everything, and humanity moving into a space-oriented civilization only complicates that for them. So, of course, the FFA is slow to give SpaceX permits, and that will have to change for Elon Musk to do what he wants, which is to send hundreds of Starships to Mars and the Moon soon so that mankind can finally take that giant leap that started with the moon, but stopped when NASA became overrun with mindless bureaucrats, congressional funding based purely on politics, and a world order that wanted to make Earth the center of the universe so they could maintain power, and to keep it that way. But SpaceX has their permit for the orbital launch, which will happen in late October or early November, which is very exciting. Mars awaits. 

I live in mound country, and there  is a mound near my home that I have talked about a lot, the Middletown Mound, which is essentially a twin to the one up the Great Miami River called Miamisburg Mound. I’ve been to the Stonehenge site with Avebury to the north and saw firsthand that their Silbury Mound is almost identical in height to the Miamisburg Mound and the Middletown Mound before it was looted in the late 1800s, and further excavation was mysteriously abandoned. Knowing the mounds well from my home in the Ohio Valley and seeing several along the Mississippi Valley over the years, when I saw the ground structures of Stonehenge and Avebury, I immediately recognized them as the same culture, meaning they had been communicating across the Atlantic Ocean well before Christ was born which meant that shipping that could make the voyage was possible. And since then, I have been looking for answers to the many questions that arise when those possibilities are considered. Then the problem gets even more complex when it has been photographed that on Mars, in what many call the remains of a city near the now famous face, there are complex mound structures too, much like Miamisburg, Middletown, and Silbury. So rather than speculate based on what we see in pictures photographed from a long way away, I am looking forward to capitalist-driven archaeology to investigate as part of the Elon Musk population of Mars plan that will finally have an opportunity to check these things out with eyes on the ground and figure out what really happened, and where the human race actually started.

This is all speculation but based on hypothetical knowledge based on the evidence that we have so far been able to gather, Mars, around 17,000 years ago, looks to have been hit by a very large planetary object from the southern hemisphere pushing up toward the north. The impact was so significant that the crust of Mars in the northern part of the planet was punched away, nearly destroying the planet entirely. The debris field between Jupiter and Mars is likely evidence of the intended killer. And still, on Earth, a lot of debris continues to fall each year as it is still floating around in space, only to be eventually caught in our gravitational pull. It might take several more thousand years for it all to fall on Earth and surrounding planets. Science fiction movies don’t do a very good job of capturing the timeline of geology in space.

Along with this cataclysm, the atmosphere was ripped away, and the oceans of Mars evaporated into space, never to return and what we see now is a husk of a planet once thriving with life, just as life on Earth is now. Understanding what happened and how it may very well be that life left that planet for a safer place, perhaps millions of years ago, or even during the last Ice Age, to become the Atlantis culture that is much talked about is undoubtedly worth an investigation. Pretty cool stuff if you aren’t in love with the silly modern interpretation of things, the same scientists who told us not to take Hydroxychloroquine during the manmade Covid outbreak of 2020. You must always be careful of science that gets paid by funders who demand a narrative and not what science actually produces with hard evidence. Speaking of evidence right in front of our faces, I was just in Michigan looking at the impact crater that made Saginaw Bay to confirm the evidence about the Younger Dryas cataclysm that took place 11,600 years ago, roughly. It looks like that large comet very likely could have been pieces of the hard impact that nearly destroyed Mars just a few thousand years earlier. The puzzle pieces begin to go together pretty fast when you look at all the pieces, not just what governments give us to look at based on their desire to control our assumptions, for many reasons.  The mound cultures in the Ohio River Valley have always been associated with Indians. Still, it’s evident that these were not a culture of primitive hunters and gatherers. Still, within their body of knowledge, they had concepts of advanced geometry and calculus and a very detailed mythology involving stellar bodies. They had a relationship with the stars that exceeds what hunters and gathers would otherwise have reason to nurture, other than looking up and seeing that they were there. This is particularly obvious at Serpent Mound in eastern Ohio and the Newark Mound complex just outside of Columbus, Ohio. The Newark Holy Stones found there in 1860 are rationalized now by lazy scientists as a hoax, but I don’t think so. And I don’t think so based on the Cincinnati and Wilmington Tablets also found in mounds around Ohio that do not connect directly to what we know of Indian cultures.

They depict an early version of the Ten Commandments in a place where nobody in an Indian tribe would know anything about a Biblical context. The controversy reminds me of a discussion I had with an employee at the British Museum over the Crystal Skull they have there. He stated to me that the skull had to be a hoax because nobody in Europe had come up with the ability to cut quartz so smoothly until much later than the dating proposed for that Crystal Skull found in Mexico. So everyone just wrote it off as a hoax because it didn’t fit the narrative. But what if the narrative didn’t have all the words, I proposed back to him. What if some cultures had developed such methods while other cultures were thousands of years behind in evolution, and we just haven’t discovered the connection yet? To assume that Europe evolved at a certain pace and everyone else in the world followed that trajectory is not very smart. But that was the suggestion. And as we know from the Vico Cycle, that may be the case for the human race over many millions of years, not just the most recent thousands. There is still a lot of evidence to collect to put the story together, but what we do have does not point to the history we know but one we are yet to discover. And when we get to Mars, it looks like many more pieces will be discovered, and we’ll learn a whole lot more about ourselves.

The Deathbed of the Liberal World Order: Giorgia Meloni and the Italian populist foundation

Why is the left so upset over Giorgia Meloni, Italy’s next prime minister? After all, she’s a woman. They wanted more women in politics and in powerful positions. So why are they calling her such bad names, calling her the next Benito Mussolini? Well, we all know the answer. It was never about women or people of color. It was always about making people feel guilty so that they would vote for progressive, liberal policies. And across the world stage, they see people everywhere reject the Liberal World Order as it was designed over the last two centuries and is falling apart in front of their faces. After all, what is fascist about the Brothers for Italy party that Giorgia is now the head of when the party platform was all about family first and nationalism that is such a threat? Well, when a bunch of communists and socialists declare that it’s a “far right” party, they mean that everything to the right of Karl Marx is radical and intolerable, and it’s the same argument we see play out everywhere. And it’s pretty funny to watch all their previous arguments fall apart across the world at the same time. If they really wanted more women in politics, they would be happy and proud of Giorgia for winning such an important seat. Instead, liberals have been exposed as the hypocrites that they always were. They didn’t want women in positions of power or minorities. They wanted liberals and thought that by appealing to their rights, they’d trick them into becoming liberals for all the various liberal parties. And it has all backfired. Instead of spreading Liberalism for the Liberal World Order, Giorgia Meloni is fighting for the rights of traditional Italians and their families. People overwhelmingly voted for her because they supported those values. 

But it’s not just in Italy where a conservative revolution is happening, or women find themselves a prominent part of it. The MAGA movement in the United States has a lot of women who are on the front of a conservative wave that apparently the Liberal World Order thought was just a Trump concept. As I’ve said for years now, Trump was a creation of that populist need. Someone was going to fill it. The 2016 election was supposed to be for liberals about preserving their Liberal World Order, of which the Washington swamp was built, by breaking glass ceilings, so long as the glass was broken by old hippie flower child progressives like Hillary Clinton. They didn’t expect that Laura Boebert, Marjorie Tayler Green, and Kari Lake would be the face of the MAGA party going into 2022 and 2024. Who will be the face of the various Joe Biden impeachments in congress? It won’t be the losers of Nancy Pelosi’s victimhood congress of identity politics.

Marjorie Tayler Green has been slowly building up her brand by being everywhere so that when Republicans take the House, she will undoubtedly be one of the leaders delivering justice many of us have long been seeking. Even though President Trump is still the face of the Republican Party, many up-and-coming leaders are women and minority candidates filling school boards, congressional seats, and governor races with a new kind of Republican populism. This isn’t the party of the uni-party anymore, of Liz Cheney and those types of Republican sell-outs. The political spectrum has moved away from socialism. People listened to lunatics like Ocasio Cortez and other hard-left progressives, and they’ve had enough. This hard right, hard left description was always an invention of the leftist media culture worldwide. People themselves were never that far left. They were tricked into moving in that direction through identity politics. But given a choice, they’d rather have a conservative person of color than a liberal one. And they’d love to vote for women, so long as by doing so, they get a family first, country first representative. That is what the election of Giorgia Meloni exposed. 

An even bigger miscalculation has been on immigration policy, the same stupidity that came straight of the office of George Soros and other global insurgents. They bet everything as members of the Desecrators of Davos on immigrant migration, voting in favor of the party that gave away the most stuff. Angela Merkel in Germany was tricked by pressure from the Green Party into adopting more progressive policies, increased migration, and green energy to hold onto power. She is kind of like the Tim Ryan of Ohio trying to hold off the MAGA efforts of J.D. Vance, who is poised to beat the liberal senate candidate. Only the Green Party was far left, and they drug Angela more to the left because of the political pressure, which was built on sentiment rather than an accurate representation of what people wanted. And those policies have been devastating to Germany on all fronts. And in America, the open border policies will be the stake in the coffin of the Biden presidency. Sure, they cheated to steal the election and put a person too dumb to know where he was in the White House, so they could make all these progressive dreams happen. But what they didn’t expect was for many of those immigrants to come into America and support Trump, at a ratio of nearly 50%. That was not the plan, and now they don’t know what to do. People aren’t going to vote for the kind of socialist hells they left behind. They want the American dream, and it’s clear that Joe Biden is against that dream. Despite how viciously the Administrative State tries to destroy him through legal shenanigans, Trump is their man and will continue to be. 

Populism is forming worldwide, wherever the Liberal World Order has ruined people’s lives, and there is nothing that can stop it. It was never Trump that made the movement. The movement made Trump, and now that people like Giorgia Meloni have seen the playbook on how to beat the Paper Tigers of Liberalism, others are following to do the same. The Liberal World Order is dying and bleeding out. The media is trying to pretend that what everyone sees is not happening. They hope that if they try to call Giorgia Meloni names like some bullies in a public school toward children who aren’t wearing the most popular fashions, they can miraculously resurrect their Liberal World Order from the deathbed. But it’s too late and has been for a while. We are seeing the last gasps of Liberalism as the hippie losers and communist slugs from the previous century dreamed of, and it’s all falling down around them. People do not want the Administrative State of a Liberal World Order run by Davos’s Desecrators. They never did, and that Liberal World Order was so arrogant in their assumptions that they thought they could manipulate everyone to their cause. And they couldn’t. Italy is just the first of many who are turning away from the fantasy of the European Union. That union is being rejected just as Brexit was, and other countries will follow, including France and Germany. The Liberal World Order tried to trick people into Liberalism with racist or sexist made-up guilt. But now, the blinders have been pulled away, and the hypocrisy is evident to all.

The Art of the Comeback: Trump has been there before, and he can do it again

This is for the many Trump campaign people who read here; I have noticed something useful that should be utilized. It’s not just a campaign of unfairness what the FBI and Biden Democrats are doing by abusing their relationship with the Department of Justice to prosecute President Trump and keep him off the ballot in 2024. We all understand that, and yes, it’s grossly unfair. But their continued use of that pressure is more than just an abuse of authority; it’s a strategy. The raid on the President’s home was a stamp on him that there was an authority bigger than him. By calling into question Trump’s right to evoke executive privilege, the enemies on the other side want to deny that Trump was ever President and could never evoke such a thing. That is the game we are playing here. It’s more like football than anything, where the Biden cheaters’ defensive line intends to create so much pressure that our quarterback, Trump, can’t make his reads and complete his throws. Even though it’s evident that Trump earned more than 75 million votes in the last election and likely will again, the strategy going into a 2024 election cycle can’t be what it is today, where the message is victimhood.   Even though it has been unfair, Trump must stop saying it and appeal to people’s sympathy. He needs to show that he is bigger than the system, which is how he became elected in 2016. The system miscalculated him and figured he would never beat Hillary Clinton anyway, so they didn’t attack him enough. They won’t make that mistake in 2024.

Likely, the Democrats will put up Gavin Newsom to replace Joe Biden. Once Biden gets through the midterms, they will retire him off into the sunset, and he’ll play along, stating his age. That will all be to make way for Newsom, who is much younger and will pressure Republicans to give more support to DeSantis and lower the age of the candidates into something more favorable to Democrats. And they’ll hope to split Republican support between Trump and DeSantis and cause a rift between MAGA supporters since most of the Republican Party has already turned against Never Trumper types and RINOs. The constant pressure of investigation and court action are all designed to keep Trump off his game and reacting, rather than setting the stage for what the next election will be about. That is where Trump would benefit significantly from changing his strategy to more offense than trying to appeal to people’s sense of unfairness. Everyone knows the system is rigged. Everyone sees how corrupt everything is. What they want to know is what Trump would do about it. The first time around, in 2015, it was The Art of the Deal presidency. People wanted a real deal maker, and Trump had his books and television shows that showed he was a master at it. They voted for him to do what he would eventually do, run circles around the politicians of the rest of the world and make fools of them, and put America back into the winning column. And it worked, it worked too well, in fact, and the globalist types hit the panic button and pulled every string at their disposal to get rid of Trump so that the threats to their Liberal World Order would stop, which is where we are today. 

But Trump has another best seller, it’s hard to get these days, but it’s still out there, The Art of the Comeback, which I think is much more appropriate for this next campaign run. 2024 is much different than things were in 2016. Before Trump’s first presidency, we only suspected certain things, and so did he. After we have confirmation on many of those things, a different approach will be needed, and the ground rules for the next election must be set by him, just as he did in 2016. He made that election about deal-making and took it out of the realm of the professional advisors who wanted it to all be about taxes, abortion, women’s rights, and climate change. Democrats in 2024 will try to sell California socialism to the rest of the nation, which will be the platform. Usually, Republicans get caught reacting to that platform instead of setting it themselves, with inflation out of control. With respect around the world, that is so terribly bad. With the crush of the electric car market that is grossly underpowered and saturating American car makers by force of government intrusion, people won’t just want to Make America Great Again. Still, they will want to do so with a big fat exclamation point.   They will want a president that has shown them the roadmap to victory before and can handle the extreme odds stacked against us with poise and grace. Obviously, the enemies of America worldwide have set things in motion that many people don’t think could be recovered. They think it’s too late for America and that nothing we do can stop the country’s destruction at this point. And that is the primary issue going into 2024. It’s one thing to win seats and gain majorities in 2022. But how do you keep people focused on task for another two years once we’ve stopped the bleeding?

I’ve always liked Trump because of his books on business. And I thought The Art of the Comeback was one of Trump’s better books because it tells the story of how a big-time investment player lost everything, to become billions of dollars poorer than a homeless person, and picked himself up to become once again and permanently, one of the world’s wealthiest people. And in the aftermath of all that success, and running the hit show on NBC, The Apprentice, Trump married Melania and then set the stage for a run for President, which he won, of course. That is a story that everyone can appreciate, and it’s the story that Americans want to hear about in 2024. They don’t want to hear about the FBI and the election fraud, although that is the biggest story in the human race. If election fraud continues, then Republicans will never win, so we have to deal with it with tighter controls. But people don’t want to hear about how Trump is a victim. They want to see that he’s bigger than the system and that he is untouchable by the enemies of America. They want to see The Art of the Comeback. They want confidence, bravado, and an America First platform. Voters want to know that Trump made a comeback for himself; now they want to see it done for them, to save their country from the obviously bad people around the world who hate America and us and are salivating our destruction. When I went to campaign events for Trump in 2015 and 2016, I saw many people carrying around copies of The Art of the Deal, hoping they could get Trump to sign it for them. They would hold it up at rallies, and Trump would positively point them out to the audience. In a lot of ways, that was the campaign slogan of 2016. But few people know about his Art of the Comeback, and it’s time to educate them on its success. It’s the perfect way to start this new campaign and the ideal way to take the momentum away from the government antagonizers who are terrified that Trump will win in 2024. And the way to keep everyone focused on the right things would be to make The Art of the Comeback the foundation for the 2024 run. It’s part of Trump’s brand, and it certainly would set in motion great things to come, politically and socially.

Sex With Children is Always Bad: There is never a rationalization for it, they need adult protection, not exploitation

There have been positives that have come out of all the mess at Lakota schools, a government school in northern Cincinnati where suddenly references toward sex with children are as loose as The Rocky Horror Picture Show has become the new Sound of Music in history class. Some really good people have come forward to defend the position of kids in public schools, more than I knew were out there. For instance, the people associated with Protect Our Lakota Kids are some of them, but who would have thought that kids needed protecting as much as we learned they do? Whatever people think of the Lakota superintendent, the previous school board, and the police, in general, decided that he could continue working professionally and that the private lives of public employees did not indicate they couldn’t do their professional jobs.   If that is the rationale that everyone is using these days, no wonder everything is so screwed up. For me, it’s simple, if someone is thinking about sex with kids, underage kids, in any way at all, then it’s evil. Kids count on the adults to shelter them from all this nonsense, and the adult population is letting them down in Lakota and all over the state and country. Some really evil people are trying to justify themselves as normal operating in the light of day, and we have obviously lost our way as a culture. There is no excuse for even thinking about sex with kids. I would encourage people who do know better to sign the petition at the link below and immediately inspire a conversation that all public schools need to have.

Protect Our Lakota Kids (protectlakotakids.com)

But it hasn’t all been bad, I have spoken to more lawyers over the last month than I ever have, and the results have been good. Most of them are looking for an easy slam dunk case that would be easy money for them. But there have been some really good ones who are very interested in helping children who get lost in this whole conversation. Someone has to fight for these kids who are victims of these adult predators with severe sexual addictions. I have learned more than I ever thought possible about the money trail that often goes along with pedophilia. If I thought before all this broke that pedophilia was a “unique” thing, it is now quite clear that it’s extremely common. No wonder nobody really cares to investigate the client list for Epstein Island. A vast network permeates most public schools, and state money is involved in keeping law enforcement fat, dumb and happy so the network can thrive, just like an illegal drug trade. There are so many people out there that are sexually broken that any audacity directed toward pedophilia is no longer tolerated. Because people want the product and there is a lot of money in it. I am happy to know that some very good lawyers are fighting out there for these children, and they are always on the lookout for the crumbs that fall out of the couch and are ready to take action when they see them. That has been an exemplary aspect of all this, to know those people are out there and willing to put their professional lives on the line to defend children. But I have learned more about the ugly underbelly of interstate pedophilia over the last month than I ever cared to learn about. Yet, that is also why it continues, because most people don’t even know that it’s going on unless they dig a bit under the surface to see it for themselves. 

Just to be clear, there is no circumstance where sex with kids is acceptable. I shouldn’t have to say it, but if you are thinking about sex with kids in any way at all, you should get help and remove yourself from children until you have dealt with your problem. Kids count on the adults in their lives for complete guidance toward their future selves, and sex should not be a part of their young lives. They shouldn’t be talking about it in the first grade. They don’t need to see trans teachers.   And they certainly don’t need to be confused about their sexual identity. They need to be playing with toys, learning what they can from trusted adults, and having fun while they still can, before they grow up and are burdened with a lot of responsibility. If we can’t agree on that basic premise, then there is not much to discuss. I found it shocking that many parents at Lakota schools were all too willing to turn their attention away from protecting kids and instead were angry at whistleblowers who presented a legitimate concern. Those parents went political first because they deliberately chose the institution over kids’ rights, which was very disappointing. You’d think that everyone could come together in agreement about the need to protect children, but obviously, that is not the case. I would go on to say about sex in general, if anybody is thinking about sex too much in their life, they should go out and get some hobbies. Just some friendly advice, I’ve been married for many decades to the same woman, and there are is a whole lot more to life than just visits to the bedroom. Sex is a part of life, but it should be a very minor part of any life. There is a lot more that adults should be inspired to do rather than waste their time having sex or thinking about sex. Eventually, all the standard sign stimuli stop working, and too many adults turn to children to light a fire and keep it interesting. And people need to draw the line long before sexual appetites ever reach that point.

The silver lining is that all this bad stuff was already there, but so was a defense network to defend against it. What has changed is that more people now know about it than before.   Good people within the legal profession have decided to use their reputations to fight for the right of children. I don’t think kids are asking too much to maintain the ability to think about fun things for as long as possible and keep destructive sex out of their lives as long as they can. I’m a person who thinks that people shouldn’t be thinking about sex until they get married and want to start a family. This idea of casual sex has been a disaster in our society. It’s an invention of the progressive left, just like most bad things are, and we should not be supporting openly sexual lifestyles. Not enough people want to take a hard line on sex in their lives because they hope maybe to not rule it out for themselves. But in every condition, it’s an empty life filled with empty people to satisfy an urge that never goes away. Sex is never satisfying, and that’s by biological design. We are supposed to want more, so we do it again and have babies to populate the earth. But we are also supposed to develop our intellects to think about other things so that sex isn’t the only thing. That’s what separates humans from animals; we can decide to do other things with our lives where the animal can’t. And that’s how we should be looking at problems like this. Certainly not rationalizing it away for our own lazy convenience.

The Evil of Staying in Your Lane: How bad behavior stays hidden and active

For all those people who are saying, “if I ever see Rich Hoffman out somewhere, I’ll give him a piece of my mind.” Well, I’m out and about a lot, and I talk to a lot of people. And when I do, nobody talks very tough to my face. So if you want the chance, I am at the Back Porch Saloon in West Chester a lot. And on one such occasion this past week, I was having lunch with a person going for their Ph.D., and he told me about the process and all the things he had to do to get into that elite club. And, in essence, that’s what it was, a club. The other Ph.D. panel members decide what the candidate must do, and if the applicant wants to be in the club, they’ll do it. The criteria differ from school to school and peer group to peer group. So really, getting a Ph.D. is similar to the rigors that are undergone to pass the BAR exam or any number of higher education gateways to an elite order. And socially, going to the college itself in our society is seen as one of those gateways, and the goal isn’t always what was taught but that the applicant endured the experience. All this came to my mind while I was listening to this guy list all the frustrating hurdles he had to jump over to achieve his goal. I thought about the situation at Lakota schools, where it was quite evident that people were having trouble confronting evil at face value. Most people privately had an opinion on it, but socially, they felt they had to stay in their lane and that they weren’t qualified to pass judgment on anybody, lest they be judged themselves. But why was this the case?

Well, most people go through something in their life where they must be initiated into some kind of group order. Usually, it starts in high school. And if it doesn’t happen there, it happens in college or the military. Hazing rituals for all group behavior are common experiences for people, even in religious groups, to some extent. All groups of people have barriers to entry, and to become part of it; people have to surrender a part of themselves to join the power of the group.   A homeowner’s association is a form of this. They may require you to keep your garage doors closed when not using your garage to maintain street face value. You can’t have boats in your driveway. You must keep your grass cut—those kinds of things. Very few people are indeed free to think what they want, about what they want, and when they want. They must do what groups tell them to do through their memberships because we are all taught early in life that acceptance by our peers is of utmost importance, whether it’s obtaining a Ph.D. for our career path or being selected in a local Mason lodge to advance to the higher degrees. And the truth of the matter is, most people stop intellectually growing at age 15, likely much lower than that these days and they put as a priority not fighting for truth, justice, and the American way but in “staying in their lane,” as people who don’t like to be challenged like to say all the time. And there just aren’t enough adults who make it through all these gateways of group associations to stand up to evil when it presents itself. They might have personal feelings about evil when they go to vote; so long as nobody is looking, they’ll express it. But in front of other people, they have been taught to stay in their lane, and that makes them trustworthy to all the slugs who accept them into their group associations who want to trust that smarter and better people won’t come along to knock them off their perch, which is what the group associations are really about, no matter what level they are pursued. People think there is power in groups and are willing to trade away personal value to gain access to that power without having to really do anything themselves. 

I remember my college days; I had friends in all the local schools who would invite me to house parties at the various fraternities and sororities at Ohio State, Miami University, and the University of Cincinnati. One I remember well occurred in Cincinnati, where I arrived to meet my friend, and I broke all kinds of rules that the fraternity brothers were distraught with me over. First of all, I walked across the emblem on the sidewalk outside without paying homage to all the ritualistic ways they required all people to do. So we got off to a rough start that didn’t improve as the night wore on. The party’s purpose was that the fraternity had hired a stripper to have sex with one of their newer members, a kid who was very shy with girls, so the fraternity brothers hoped that a really outrageous experience with this stripper would cure him of his shyness. So he had sex with the girl in front of everyone right there in the living room. Then once he was done, the rest of the fraternity members took turns with her, and this all went on in full view of a window where I could see police walking around down the sidewalk.

Additionally, the stripper was managed by her husband, who watched as if his wife was selling lemonade or Tupperware. It was awkward, I couldn’t wait to leave, and I did so at the earliest possible moment once it was clear I had satisfied all the reasons that my friend had invited me. It took a few years, but gradually, I stopped being friends with that person because we simply lost common attributes. Once he stepped over that line, there was no going back, and we had very little to talk about. That was the case with many people from that time, friends who turned into compliant people happy to stay in their lane in exchange for an easy job that they were well paid to essentially not challenge anybody in authority. 

Understanding that, it’s not hard to understand why people turn into turtles when they are confronted with evil. And evil knows it. They know that group associations are more important to most people they deal with, so they conduct evil right in front of everyone’s faces audaciously because they expect everyone to stay in their lane and never challenge them. Because they have their own skeletons in their closet, and who are they to judge anybody? That is the danger of becoming compromised. It might be fun at the moment. It might be nice to have the herd’s protection and rely on that protection to get jobs in life and financial security without having to work too hard or display much bravery. There are plenty of people in the world who are happy to pay people to stay in their lane, and that is ultimately achieved by joining group associations, whether a Ph.D. or a fraternity, where the brotherhood becomes more important than your own family. And that is why when bad things happen, there aren’t enough people around to stand up to it and to fight evil when it presents itself. Because once people participate in evil to be accepted into a group association, they are tainted for life and never feel once again that they have a right to pass judgment on anything. And they cower in fear when evil is so audacious that they end up feeding it with their complacency instead of doing what must be done to defend the world from the mechanisms of tyranny and the schemes of the stupid.

Beating the Bad Guys: The members of the “A Team” continue to have success, and for good reason

I was having a bad day, as some days sometimes go and I received a very nice text from a friend who showed me a photo of her sister reading my book in her backyard.  I really appreciated it, and it didn’t take long to smooth out that bad day into what I often say, wrestling alligators and making boots out of them.  But at a time when things were pretty tough, it was nice to see someone send me something that was positive.  I appreciated the gesture.  And it also reminded me of what I had done a year prior with that book and how significant it has been to improving the world in ways that aren’t typically measured.  Around August and September of 2021, I had given out 100 copies of my book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business to those I considered part of the “A Team,” various members in politics, business leaders, legal people, and in the trench freedom fighters I thought had a chance to do good things, and wanted to.  I couldn’t give books to everyone I knew, but I did to those who showed the most promise of doing big things on a war front that the mainstream news was ignoring.  While they wanted us to look at everything but what was important, I had been pointing out with greater frequency that real fight that we are all involved in, and I knew I needed to do something to help facilitate that effort in our war time epic that we are living through presently. 

Prior to the book coming out in August of 2021 I was pulling into the parking lot of the World’s Largest Truck Stop in Iowa when I received a call from another very good friend, a VIP known statewide.  He was upset that I had changed the name of my blog site from Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom, to The Gunfighter’s Guide.  For over a decade he had come to rely on my blog site for the kind of news that he couldn’t get anywhere else, and he wasn’t happy with the name change.  I explained to him that we were in a different world now.  I felt that there was a real need to provide people with a guide to fight and defend themselves in this increasingly hostile world, a world that desired to commit election fraud to remove a president, a world that was clearly fine with committing treason against the United States of America and to sell away all our assets to syndicates of global criminal enterprise.  And a world that would French kiss evil happily then spit in our face and call us the bad guys.  A lot of people were lost in how to deal with those elements and I had a background that had some strategy that might help them, so I was planning to focus my intentions on doing just that.  He seemed somewhat satisfied with that answer, even if he protested the change.  But now, a year later, what I was up to has been quite clear and I am happy to report that the world is moving in the right direction.

For instance, one of those copies of the book I gave to the controversial Venessa Wells from Lakota schools.  I saw her as a bright new voice in the fight for constitutional preservation and thought she might make good use of it.  But I didn’t give a book to the Lakota school board president Lynda O’Conner.  Even though she and I were attached at the hip at that time, I felt she was just using me to gain power on the school board and to become its president.  I didn’t care because if she gained power, then there would be a 3 to 2 vote against another levy on the ballot, so it was a mutual relationship kind of thing.  But I didn’t see her as someone who would make use of the strategies outlined in my book.  But Venessa was.  Its one thing to talk about the news, as I had been doing on my blog site for years.  Its quite another to come up with unique strategies that could heavily leverage wins to those who follow the outlines of my book.  And that was what was needed.  I often talk about the paralysis that most people have when confronted with evil.  Most of society suffers from this condition.  And those who aren’t afraid to fight often feel the system is so against them that they can be identified and destroyed once they are singled out.  So they often find themselves running from the bad guys instead of fighting them.  That was what had to change which I had to explain to my VIP friend.  I was talking to someone just a few days ago who felt they were targeted to be killed, and they felt they only had a short time to live to do some of the good whistleblowing work that needed to be done, before they were killed.  In my personal background, not only do I have a long history with Lean techniques, and all kinds of business improvement techniques and psychological analysis, but I have a background with various mobs and criminal elements.  I have known very well various judges and hit people, so I know the underbelly of society thoroughly.  And I don’t want people to feel that they will be killed just for doing the right things in life.  That’s why I wrote the book, to help those people feel they can do their work, and not worry about such things. 

A year later, after giving out those 100 books, and then the many others who have bought the book for themselves and made good use of it, there have been some very good victories against detrimental odds that now show a path to success, just as I knew it would.  But sharing that with others isn’t so easy.  People get inundated by information coming at them from all sorts of directions.  But the track record is unmistakable and it makes me happy to see.  I appreciate all the great feedback, but more than that, I enjoy more seeing people win at life, at whatever they are trying to do.  On the freedom movement side, if they win, then I’m happy.  But in business too.  It’s a hostile world out there and people need some way to get an advantage.  And if the concepts in The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business are followed in regard to international trade and intercontinental relationships entire nations could be brought down, such as China, or groups of hostile nations such as the Desecrators of Davos.  They are much weaker and more vulnerable than many think they are, they aren’t so scary, if you know how to beat them.  And that was the point of The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business all along, and why I changed the name to my blog site, to help people learn how to beat those scary forces out there that want to control the world, whether its locally, statewide, nationwide, or internationally.  There is no reason to be scared, or powerless in this world.  If you know how to beat the bad guys, in whatever field, then I want to see people free to do so.  Good people should never worry about being killed or destroyed for doing the right thing.  And after a year of strategy outlined in that book, the track record is obvious, and there are many more victories to enjoy before its all said and done.

Rinos for Lakota: Time to call the public education scam for what it is

For the record, given the level of taxation we have now, locally, statewide, and nationally, you can’t be a conservative and be for higher taxes. Yet, at Lakota schools, behind all the reckless gossip of the superintendent’s life that has spilled over into his professional capacity, the real story under the surface of the debate is that Lakota has wasted all its money that has been generously given by the community and that levy whores are already pushing for tax increases to be placed on a ballot, because they know it will take several attempts to pass, to wear down the voters, and the big government spenders behind the Lakota school system want their money. And they are remarkably willing to overlook any problem so they can get it, which is grossly apparent not just by the labor union elements but the disguised face of the Democrat party, a Facebook group called Rinos For Lakota (Conservatives). They are obviously not conservative, they are pro-big government schools, and they want the hired superintendent, no matter his personal flaws, to sell a levy to the public and push up the income extorted from the community even higher than it is now. The school board recklessly gave out raises to the teacher’s union recently, and now they have to pay for it and are running out of money. So essentially, the next levy fight has already started, even if it’s not formally on the ballot, and Lakota has been keeping Matt Miller around, hoping that he has some miracle rabbit tucked away to pull out so that the public would vote for it. The anger toward whistleblowers reporting real news on Matt Miller is the giveaway to the real motivations and the example of why vast evil is permitted in public schools. Because groups like the Rino’s For Lakota Schools want the free babysitting, the hope that the school will be better parents for their kids than they are and that the school’s reputation will keep pushing up their real estate values artificially, perpetually, they don’t really care about the kids of the school, or what happens to them. They are like all liberals, they want what they want, and they’ll run over anybody to get it. 

There are plenty of lawyers involved. They’d all like some easy money out of a school that allows administrators to create unsafe environments for children. Be careful what you wish for.

Most of the assumptions that government school advocates utter, like the Rino’s for Lakota, are essentially old union talking points, like all public schools are the centerpiece of a community. If they go down, so will the community. Well, that’s false, and it’s time to call their bluff on that assumption. People move to a community for lots of reasons.   Schools might be one of them, but those tend to be low information, young neurotic parent types who eventually grow up anyway, often during election cycles. The unions have seized on this ignorance to exploit it for their own use, which is why we have our beliefs about public schools. But in truth, a good community full of good people is why a school district is successful. It’s not because of what a school does that makes a community good. The school system is simply riding on the backs of success that comes with the parents. Parents who move to a district because of the perception of a good school are already putting the extra effort into their children that is conducive to good behavior, so naturally, one thing causes the effects of the next thing. But it’s never the schools themselves that make something good. The belief that a school superintendent can make a good school is simply ridiculous. So is the notion that the teachers of Lakota are better than the teachers of Mason, or Monroe, or anyplace else. Lakota might be able to recruit good teachers for their first decade of service that might be better than other districts because of the nice roads, the great shopping, the wonderful restaurants, and other great things. But they are all unionized employees, and by the time they reach their shelf life after a decade or so of service, they start to become complicit slugs that aren’t worth the money we spend on them. 

But when that belief system is jeopardized, you can see by some of these Facebook musings from the Rino’s of Lakota that they have bought the ruse hook, line, and sinker. They swallowed the union bait and have built their lives around the scam. And they hope for the protection of legalizations to maintain their vast illusion. When people come along who challenge their premise, they get angry because they fear that everything they have built their lives around is false. And they want to attack anybody who shakes their confidence in that system they want to believe so intensely because they are too lazy to let the facts guide their decisions. It’s interesting to consider that just in April of 2022, the school board, led by many of these Rinos for Lakota, wanted to get rid of Darbi Boddy because if she stayed on the board, Matt Miller might leave for another district. Now, because they have seen Matt Miller’s police report, most everyone would gladly keep Darbi and say bye-bye to Matt.   Yet, the Rinos for Lakota aren’t mad at Matt; they are upset that anybody exposed Matt for who he really was. We went from complete illusion in April to an overdose of reality by September. And if the world were run by people like the Kool-Aid drinkers of Rino’s for Lakota, we would never know what kind of activity these public-school administrators were up to because the school itself, with the help of the board, would simply cover it up. 

My suggestion would be to call the public education bluff and terminate the superintendent on grounds based on his behavior. There are plenty of opportunities in his contract to release him based on his personal behavior that has impacted his public role as a hired administrator. But the main concern for Lakota, the teacher’s union, and groups like these Rino’s for Lakota is for the passage of another levy. They know they need the money, and they are hoping they can sit on this story and push it under the rug, then parade Matt around to high school football games like he’s Elvis and appeal to the young moms who are voters and might vote for a tax increase because they find him appealing. They aren’t selling facts but purely imaginary hopes and dreams with no bases in reality. They hope to control the narrative with rules and procedures that protect them from whistleblower judgment, and when that fails to protect their intentions, they get upset and scream to the gods of legalism for more power to shut down the voices that would tell them the truth. Because they don’t want to hear it. But regardless of their wishes, many people spend money on Lakota schools, and they are in the vast minority. Vanessa Wells only lost in her election because she made an ethical decision not to carry the Republican nomination. If she had kept it, she would have easily beaten anybody on the current school board. And that is a lesson for the next time around. But, if she had been elected to the board, she would not have had the freedom to act as a conduit of valuable information as she is now. And we likely wouldn’t know what we do. And Lakota is far better off knowing the condition of its employees than in not. Because if it really wants to get better, as a district, it will correct the bad things so people can believe in it beyond just mindless lip service from people too lazy to consider the truth.

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

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

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

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

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