Jennifer Edwards Baker Attacks Butler County Republicans: The keyboard assassins of Fox 19 in Cincinnati

How Media Tampers with Elections

Of course all 7 Butler County judges recused themselves from the bologna case in Ohio against the great auditor Roger Reynolds and two other elected officials in the heat of the political season. One thing that I can’t stand is a bully, especially when it comes to media.  It’s pretty clear now why so many in the media hate that many people elected Donald Trump for president.  They get it.  We see it in Joe Biden; a puppet administration ran essentially by media types who project their radical progressive agenda onto a caricature in the White House.  They have been doing it for years, but if we had not elected Trump to disrupt that process, we might never have seen it as clear as we do now.  That much was evident in Stephanie Grisham’s new book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now, just released.  Even though that book was intended to be a hit piece against the Trump family, as a whole, and to show how reckless and dangerous President Trump was, what it revealed was just how much the media wants to be in power and to run politics as unelected radicals who use the power of persuasion from the comfort of a nice, comfy desk to rule the world.  I hate it so much that is the primary reason I run this blog, The Gunfighter’s Guide, and have done so for over ten years and to millions of readers.  I do it to counter all the activism that occurs in the media world. A fine example of just what I’m talking about happened to several politicians in my home township of Liberty in Butler County, Ohio, which involves a lawsuit against Roger Reynolds, and two trustee candidates, Buck Rumpke and incumbent Tom Ferrell. 

Essentially, the lawsuit recently filed by a property owner over a proposed senior type center development project wants more money for their land.  They allege that Roger Reynolds was using politics to hold down the property’s price and keep other buyers away from the purchase process.  All the members of the lawsuit are alleged to be involved in some way or another.  Now on the surface, that sounds pretty nefarious.  But as you dig into the story a bit, you find out that most of the participants know each other from childhood. It affects families, elderly people, and cancer diagnosis with lots of emotion attached.  By the time the smoke clears, there will be hard feelings, there will be resolutions, and there will be a path forward that adults should be able to resolve on their own.  But then comes the media where Jennifer Edwards Baker from Fox 19 in Cincinnati inserted herself into the story as a political activist to take what is a pretty standard property dispute and turned it into a corruption scandal with the headline titled “Corruption-related allegations in lawsuit Against Butler County auditor, Liberty trustee. 

I’ve known Roger Reynolds for a long time, many, many years, and he’s always been a good guy.  Does he have some little bit of tyrant in him who would use zoning laws to squeeze a property owner to sell the property to only him and for half the price of its worth?  I would never think so based on what I know of Roger.  But then again, these people have known each other all their lives.  Can you know everything about somebody in every circumstance?  Of course not, so anything is possible.  The problem with the Channel 19 hit piece is the timing.  With the lawsuit filed at the end of September 2021 and Jennifer Edwards Baker putting quite a lot of effort into her article on it plastering the pictures of Roger and Ferrell on the cover rather dramatically, it doesn’t take much deduction to see that the effort is political and not some casual reporting of a legal situation.  Roger, Ferrell, and Buck Rumpke are all big names in the Butler County GOP, and I happen to know that Jennifer is not fond of Republicans. I’ve had to get after her and reporters at Channel 5 before using their media outlets to incite riotous conditions during 2020 as they were trying to lure Black Lives Matters rioters into West Chester to antagonize suburbanites into the fear of big city manipulations.

If Jennifer wanted to do a fair story on corruption, I could point her to dozens and dozens of similar stories all over Cincinnati.  The allegations over this Butler County land deal are common in properties where millions of dollars are involved, and generations of families are a part of the story.  There are many Democrats that are involved in these kinds of scandals.  Heck, we’ve seen a lot of scandals on the national stage, such as the DOJ being weaponized by the Biden administration to go after parents questioning their school boards over critical race theory.  There are such stories right now going on in Lakota. But we have to ask, “where’s Jennifer on those stories? Paging Jennifer Edwards Baker. Paging the Fox 19 News hyphenated activist looking for bottom feeder stories.” There are plenty of stories about corruption that Jennifer could have picked.  But this one targets Republicans right before a big election and pastes the good name that took a lifetime to build by Roger Reynolds all over the cover.  Of course, typically, what happens when a lawsuit is named forces the defenders to lay low and limit their speech to not corrupt their case.  By the time that all the dust settles and the case is over with everyone shaking hands in the end, the damage will already have been done.  When these Republicans should be out campaigning for their official positions, they have to answer corruption questions based on allocations.  Allegations can be made about anything.  Proving them is much harder to do and often falls short in the end. 

People asked me what I thought of the article by Jennifer Edwards Baker, and my reply was that it was typical Channel 19 activism.  A lazy reporter was looking to stir up gossip and trouble for Republicans.  If she cared about corruption, she’d have plenty of stories around Cincinnati to do them on, but she picked on prominent Republicans in Butler County for other reasons.  Allegations are not fact, and trying to play on the emotions of an 87-year-old man who wants to sell his land is not a story.  It’s bait to impede the election process of known and solid Republicans. I’m sure everyone involved in the lawsuit will declare that the timing was not a factor.  But there are a lot of months in a year.  Why now?  And Jennifer should have known better.  She stuck herself and Channel 19 into the story as political activism and nothing more. It’s a way to attempt to tarnish the reputation of Butler County as a whole by going after one of its best politicians and most respected.  It reminds me of the FBI case in going after the Speaker of the House over the FirstEnergy deal in Columbus.  Radical progressives went after an entire energy industry to force FirstEnergy to seek protection.  The FBI calls it bribery. I’d call it the survival of a company trying not to be shut down from political activism by the Obama administration’s energy policies.  The goal of the FBI investigation was to harm the Republican stronghold in the Ohio House.  It’s just another form of election tampering by Democrats, and Jennifer Edwards Baker is essentially doing the same thing in Butler County, Ohio.  During an election season, whenever a reporter puts “corruption” in their lead, they try to steer opinions negatively.  If it’s a conviction, that’s another matter, but when it’s just allegations, its activism, which most mainstream media has become.  They want to rule the world, not as officeholders, but as keyboard terrorists and assassins who operate in the shadows.

China is at War with America: Through their guilt, we see their footprints in the wet paint

The Way China Fights War

The first thing people must understand about war is that for most people, they barely notice.  For instance, during the American Revolution, it was just a few miles to the north of Philadelphia. Americans and British offers commingled at parties and other social events just as Washington’s troops froze at their encampment in Valley Forge.  The residence of Philadelphia primarily played both sides so they could survive whoever eventually won the war.  Just as we see now with the American war with China, it’s an undeclared war, and that’s the way China wants it.  There is a lot of commingling because ordinary people know they need to survive and find a way to appease whoever wins.  And currently, most people, as they did with England during the Revolution, are planning for China to succeed.  So they play along to get along.  There is still open trade between the countries; there are still ownerships that extend between the nations.  The war that China wants to have with America is not one with troops and tanks but in culture.  Their strategy is to replace our culture with their own, so they plan to convince those average people to embrace their culture gradually and through that means to undo America and replace it with Chinese communism. China’s premier book on strategy, The Art of War, lays it all out for everyone to see.  They don’t mean to be friends with us or anyone in the West.  They intend to conquer us and rule over us, implementing their culture at all costs. 

Warfare changed in the world the moment that the radio was invented.  World War II and the various conflicts in the east and Mideast involving communism were carryovers, but war changed.  Before mass communication around the world, which we have today, the goal was to use sheer force to force an opponent into capitulation.  Now, such a surrender of culture can occur through the media, which is why China has invested so heavily into buying up American media and using it to shape our opinions against American capitalism and toward Chinese communism.  Since most of us think of war as planes, tanks, missiles, and troops, we never declared war formally because the war with China has always been about other kinds of means to instigate a capitulation.  Remember the power of Voice of America during the Cold War.  By sending in media to the U.S.S.R from the United States, considerably eroded everyday citizens belief in communism and caused a massive erosion in support for the mother government.  Combined with the outrageous spending Russia involved themselves in to keep up with Reagan’s military buildup, it crushed the nation and communism from that part of the world. 

China and many others worldwide have studied that playbook and are attempting to use it against America.  They have loaned us money to control our debt obligations.  They have purchased property in America to have a vested interest in what goes on in our country.  They have a massive spy network of honeypots raised from unwanted little girls in their culture to subvert the politics of our republic.  They have been hard at work for decades, infiltrating our institutions and bending them toward communism at every turn.  I often tell the story of the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana, where one of their most significant exhibits is essentially a brochure for China and their eventual domination of the world’s markets.  The exhibit essentially states, “China will be the next world superpower; better get on board.” People have gradually accepted this to be accurate, making the conquest that much easier. 

The primary strategy they wish to provoke against us is frustration in our republic form of government.  We have designed our way of government in America to work slow, not get in the way of business and commerce too much.  That is one of the keys to our fantastic GDP.  Government works too slow to get into the form of our economic engine.  But communists want to show how efficient a central party rule can be if they go total authoritarian.  Where decisions are made by a few people and are imposed on everyone else without debate.  China wants to tie up our courts; they want to see Republicans fighting Democrats.  They want to see our media in chaos because they want to see our internal strife bringing down capitalism from these forces they have infected with their ideas so that the collapse comes from within, giving them plausible deniability. 

But things have not been good on the China front; they have been caught tampering with our elections in America because they went too far with their tampering.  They don’t care to break American laws.  But in their haste, China has left behind their footprints in the paint they have surrounded themselves with into a corner.  And of course, they have been caught on Covid-19, a manufactured virus they produced in the now-famous Wuhan lab with Dr. Fauci.  They have tried to contain the story with their global media partners of Google and Facebook, but the story has gotten out, just as the information did back in the days of Voice of America. News still gets out, and China has its hands on all kinds of duplicitous activity.  America can’t afford to call them out on it because of our debts, because China has the goods on so many of our politicians and their relationships to the spy network.  There has been a lot of commingling.  I pointed out that during the Revolution, Benedict Arnold was one of Washington’s favorite generals.  But during all that commingling with the British officers, Arnold met a nice girl very sympathetic to England.  So out of love or lust, or both, he betrayed Washington and fought on the side of the English.  It happens all the time.  The only thing that has changed is the way we fight.  Not the intent of the fight.  Many in our present congress have had such relationships, and they are compromised to China, and they can’t fight back, not anymore.  Their hearts are not clean. 

Yet never confuse the matter, the Chinese want to show how slow our republic form of government is and how fast their communist government can act because the flaw in their belief is that government can produce.  That is the failure of all Marxist ideologies.  Marx never figured out that centralized authority could not force fairness on people while still producing on a mass scale.  Marxism never accounted for the personal autonomy of individual free will.  America discovered that and developed it in its own unique way, and the communist government of China knows it cannot win face to face.  They have had to resort to all this double-dealing and internal insurrection as their only means to accomplish their objective.  One of the reasons their mistakes have increased, and they have been exposed is because the Trump economy was threatening to get too far in front of them, destroying their goals of becoming the world’s most dominant economy.  So, they had to take out Trump and did anything they could to do so, starting with the manufactured Covid virus and the election fraud that we are now seeing on the various electronic voting machines around America during the last election.  Ultimately, they plan to capitalize on people’s hatred of Joe Biden, a president they put in place, and to shove Americans toward communism for a solution to all the dysfunction they hear about in the news, much of which is now owned by corporate media loyal to the Chinese change state.  And that is where we are, at war with China and their intent to rule the world with communism.  And nothing else.

The Proof of Fake News: Corporate Media shows its cards and intent to destroy America

I am very good friends with several people in the arena who are legislators in state and federal House and Senate positions.  I am also very good friends with people who consider themselves Sovereign Citizens and are so upset with the corporate takeover of America that they renounced their citizenship and exist as “non-people.” I understand their arguments; they have tried to recruit me to their cause many times, declaring that all the property we own doesn’t really belong to us, but to this global corporate cabal, which we have seen emerge out into the open since President Trump was in the White House and was driven out by election fraud in 2020.  Based on what we learned from the Maricopa County, Arizona election audit, we can easily say now there is more than enough proof that fraud was committed on such a scale to insert Joe Biden and remove President Trump illegally.  This has only fed the argument of those who believe as the Sovereign Citizens do.  Of course, the next step in the process is that they’ll take back their property at will, our homes, our cars, our jobs.  But as I’ve told my friends, both up and down the political spectrum, I’ll stand and fight my ground to protect my property.  My property is my property, end of story.  I don’t share.  I do not recognize any global power or any corporate alliance.  When I wrote my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, I had all these kinds of people in mind.  Corporate structures can be brought down and disabled, so don’t be afraid of them.  They should instead be afraid of you. Don’t feed them with your fear. 

Yet, I could only think of the Sovereign Citizen argument about corporate structure in the wake of what we learned from Maricopa County in Arizona.  I wondered how or if Fox News would even cover it, which they didn’t much.  Even Sean Hannity kept his shows focused on the border crises and not the election fraud because it was a corporate decision not to open that can of worms, which existed whether anybody acknowledged it or not.  Instead, all the news outlets covered was that Biden gained more votes in the recount than in the original count.  Everyone from CBS News, ABC, Fox, and CNN all covered the Maricopa County results in the same way, pointing to the corporate conspiracy that Alex Jones and the Sovereign Citizens are always talking about.  They say that the corporate cabal is run by a band of demonic hellhounds using the blood ritual of abortion to fuel their evil menace across the earth.  I might otherwise squint with a description like that, but suddenly, it made more sense than any other explanation for the obvious cover-up that mass media was engaged in. 

It’s one thing to say that all news that you disagree with is fake news.  But here, we had obvious evidence that anybody paying attention to could see was an obvious cover-up.  All the news outlets who deliberately tried to mislead their viewers with a faulty count of illegal ballots participated in a crime against America; it was sedition and treason at best, and many worse things.  And it pointed back to the Sovereign Citizen position that nothing we have is ours, that corporate stakeholders could call in our debts anytime they want and enslave us to their will.  And they simply no longer recognized America as anything sovereign.  They didn’t care about our Constitution.  They didn’t care about us.  They were all signed up to this global view of things and were going to take us all there kicking and screaming if need be, and there was nothing we could do about it.  Patriotic Americans did not own these corporate media types after all.  They could care less what happened to America.  They had sold us all out long ago, and the way they covered and participated in election fraud during the 2020 election was proof, all the evidence we needed. 

I waited for a few days after the results were announced to see how the coverage played out. Still, by the middle of the following week, no mainstreamers talked about the election fraud case in Maricopa County, Arizona.  It was, after all, the biggest story in the world, yet nobody wanted to acknowledge it.  The argument that it was a partisan audit was tossed around, but what is happening when primarily Democrats run the elections in blue cities? Isn’t that partisan?  But arguing that the Arizona audit was conducted by conservatives only opens the door to ask whether we should allow Democrats to run any aspect of an official election.  Based on that assumption, we have a lot to talk about regarding what we know.  Yet nobody wanted to discuss the matter where people get their news the most.  Instead, all topics were about getting the jab, about Covid, about the border crises, all of which were problems created by the Biden administration to essentially direct our attention from the real crimes at hand, election fraud that they knowingly participated in to undermine our republic.

It’s one thing to be angry at the media because they don’t cover what we think they should, but election fraud is an issue everyone should be concerned with because there isn’t a country without voter integrity.  And maybe that’s the point. Instead, it’s the most logical point.  Alex Jones and the Sovereign Citizens have been right about that acquisition all along; most of what we see and hear is controlled by a corporate entity for the ownership of some unseen bosses.  But I would say that we don’t have to accept that.  Honestly, we own this country, not some corporate pinheads showing themselves only at Davos every year.  And if anybody thinks they are going to take anything from me, well, that works both ways.  I can break the rules too.  We all can.  We will not be conquered by many corporate hacks using the rules to steal our country and our wealth while we comply and stay in the lane following the rules they gave us.  If they break election law, they deserve to be prosecuted.  Because we either have law and order, or we don’t. 

What we learned from Maricopa County was extremely valuable.  It convinced me that Joe Biden was not elected.  Take away all the emotion, and the facts of the audit speak for themselves.  There were illegal votes counted.  Votes made up in a Wal-Mart parking lot in the back of a van by a couple of dope-smoking losers don’t count.  Dead people can’t vote.  People can’t vote twice.  You can’t tamper with evidence by hacking the voting machines the day before an audit and expect everyone to be OK with it.  Any one of these would have flipped Arizona from Biden to Trump, and everyone in the media knows it.  Yet they all chose the same lie, even Fox News.  And we are better off knowing it now because when you are fighting a hidden enemy who refuses to show themselves in the light of day, this is the way to smoke them out into the open.  And by doing what they did, they are out in the open.  They exist beyond speculation and conspiracy theory.  We can see their network and the menace they intend for our country.

All Red Flag Laws Are Government Overreach: While everyone was looking at the loser Biden, legislators have snuck them into the NDAA Bill

All Read Flag Laws are Government Overreach

About ten years ago, I warned everyone about the National Defense and Authorization Act, in how it was meant to trample all over the Bill of Rights under the guise of emergency power.  This NDAA thing told that any time the military needed to get control of something the government deemed was an out-of-control situation, they could then use the NDAA to suspend the Constitutional rights of anybody and get things under control.  In theory.  The NDAA was always a bridge too far. It was sold to us as patriotic, just as Homeland Security was, and it lingers in the background of about everything that happens domestically involving the military.  My position on things is that I support the military so long as they are fighting for the Constitution.  But when they become the enemy under an oppressive government, such as the one that we have presently with China running the Biden administration, then that’s where you don’t want the military to have too many domestic teeth.  This is why we should never have let it happen in the first place.  Now, to my points in the past, there is a 1300-page bill passing through the House and Senate installing red flag laws that many Republicans have signed on to.  Even the NRA has had a weak position on this red flag problem.  So, while everyone is looking at the chaos of the Biden administration and election theft by foreign antagonizers, a power grab by the government and the military is happening right under our noses. 

Red flag laws are reprehensible.  They allow peer pressure to run the world essentially.  Before Covid, people might have had a hard time understanding, but it’s what’s happening with the masks.  Demanding people to wear a mask or take a vaccine is unconstitutional by every measure of the law.  So to get around that law, the government encourages peers to tattle on each other to force compliance that the government has no right to conduct.  When it comes to gun ownership under red flag laws, if you don’t wave at your neighbor the way they think you should, or if you don’t take care of a member of your extended family the way they want, they could call up the government hotline and report you as a danger to yourself or others.  Then the government could come to your home in theory and confiscate your guns “for your own good.” Just as Obama did, the Biden administration has been trying to use every mass shooting as an excuse to unleash red flag laws as a power grab.  When the fundamental problem of mass shootings is likely related to marijuana use, the red flag intends to provoke mental instability into government control over a person’s essence in society.  If “they” (potential mass shooters)  cannot be trusted, they must be watched and managed as a menace to others. 

The government has been trying to get people to accept this line of thought with Covid by introducing the concept that what you do might be a danger to others as a premise.  Once we accept that concept, then red flag laws come next.  Even Mike DeWine of Ohio, who was supposed to be a Republican, favored red flag laws after a Dayton nightclub shooting that occurred not that long ago.  The kid who did the shooting was a drug-using loser from the political left.  But DeWine ignored all that and went for a constitutional violation of all gun owner’s property rights.  Like Covid, he showed that he was more inclined to centralized government authority than to protect individual rights.  And that’s the real danger when we give the government the power to manage a situation on their own and aren’t driven by the inclination of the vote.  The misinterpretation of their abilities and timidity can then trample the rights of the people they are supposed to represent.  As a little fellow, DeWine may be scared of viruses and other threats, but he does not have a right to impose his limited view of the world on those he was elected to govern. 

This latest red flag law is written in that NDAA update bill. If there is a concern over a gun owner, the issue is presented to a military tribunal. From there, the opinions of “experts” can then issue the mandate to confiscate the guns from a property owner.  Now the government would say that these are under emergency conditions where the military was involved.  Well, ten years ago, that might have sounded like science fiction where the government would shut down the Constitution and become a branch of local law enforcement, but then look what Governor DeWine did over Covid-19.  We did see a governor power-hungry and dystopian suddenly go all-in on complete tyranny.  The next time might be the next virus or even some other form of attack where the military takes over society and starts making demands on us.  Such an occasion could be a storm that knocks out the power grid leaving everyone without power.  Or it could be a political upheaval like we saw on January 6th, where people were upset over the election results, and for a good reason, upset.  The opposition party then decided that those people and their families were threats to their order, so they arrested them and put them in jail, warning their peers what the power of government could do to them.  Under those conditions of a Nancy Pelosi radicalism, such an NDAA provision on red flag laws could be implemented at that time. We’ve already seen the warning signs; it’s not very far-fetched to see how this little thing could become a big constitutional menace. 

As to what I would do if such a corrupt court of military officers came to my house, I won’t say directly. Instead, I would point to two books that I had written to express my motives when and if such a thing did happen.  One book that I wrote was specifically about this kind of abuse of authority, called Tail of the Dragon.  The other book I wrote a long time ago is called The Symposium of Justice.  Needless to say, if what the military or a governor or president does is not in the Constitution, I could care less what some skinny jean author of an NDAA bill slides into a massive 1300-page document.  It’s unconstitutional and a law that will be ignored and challenged in every way possible.  But for those still scared of it, I would remind everyone of the Battle of Wounded Knee, where the military was worried about the Lakota Sioux under Sitting Bull conducting Ghost Dances.

The government went to arrest Sitting Bull.  There was a massive shootout, and the government never lived it down.  If such a thing happened today among gun and militia groups, it would be much worse than Waco or Ruby Ridge.  Only, in the case of Sitting Bull, the Indians there was part of a dying race.  The MAGA supporters in the country between Washington D.C. and Los Angeles don’t have much tolerance for Biden and the Democrats.  The situation could quickly get out of hand, and the government couldn’t afford what would happen in the aftermath.  Any red flag law proposed is against the Constitution, so I’d say at this time, don’t let it distract you.  They might want to have complete control over us for their climbs to power.  We have seen in Covid that “experts” can’t be trusted, so there is a lot wrong with the NDAA concept that needs to be flushed out in the future.  And if the government has plans to abuse their authority, they will be met correctly.  We have guns to keep the government in check.  Not to surrender our freedoms to those drunk on power and of a timid nature unable to solve complicated problems.  They do not have a right to make their problems our problems.

Don’t Play Nice With Democrats, They are At War With Us: Say NO to more funding

Shut Down The Government

Here’s a news flash, we are at war!  We are not in a situation where we, as Republicans, are required to play nice with Democrats.  No matter what you think about election fraud.  No matter what you think about the border.  No matter what you think about the cover-up of our political machine helping China develop a bioweapon in coronavirus at the Wuhan lab with NIH funding by Dr. Fauci.  We are under attack.  Democrats are trying to collapse our system of government, of our country, and we have the means to stop them. It’s not with elections during the midterms.  It’s not with the reinstitution of President Trump.  It’s actually upon us now, with the vote on the Hill to raise the debt ceiling and refund the government at the end of September.  We are already terribly in debt because we’ve played too nice.  We let the United Nations sucker us with Covid and trillions of dollars of new debt.  What is happening is a classic Cloward and Piven strategy meant to crush the American dollar and America as a sovereign nation.  We have domestic enemies who are helping bring it about.  Yet, we still have the power in our hands to stop it.  We still control the flow of money.  We can say no to raising the debt limit, and we can refuse to fund the government past the September deadline.  What are you afraid of happening?  What could be worse than losing your country?

Look, already, the government has taught people to live without the government. What will the media do when the government shuts down and people can’t go to the National Parks?  We already shut down the government during Covid.  I went to six National Parks this past year, and most of them had just reopened.  At Yellowstone in June 2021, they had only been open a few weeks after the government shutdown over Covid, and honestly, life still went on. Suppose they shut down over a lack of funding. Who is going to care?  People will rearrange their plans and get on with their lives.  This isn’t how it used to be where Republicans were the first to blink in such shutdowns; they would accept the blame for the whole fiasco.  No, we’re in a real new world now.  These days, if you stand up to Democrats by throwing all this in their face, you will be rewarded by voters; even illegal immigrants will vote Republican.  Because everyone likes a fighter, and everyone wants to see people in power defending the underdog.  This is the first time we could have a government shutdown where the Democrats would get the blame.  The public won’t care a bit.  By taking this leverage away from Democrats now, you will take it from them forever. 

And to put an end to the trillions that Democrats want to spend with that communist infrastructure plan they want to pass.  Just take away their ability to borrow money.  The number one extortion piece that China has over the United States is our debt.  Democrats want to feed that power for an overthrow of America. That’s why they are against the Pledge of Allegiance; that’s why they want people to protest the American flag.  Do they hate America, isn’t that obvious yet?  Who doubts that now?  They have virtually come out and stamped their hatred of us right on our foreheads.   So why play nice with them?  Why shake hands?  Why pretend that the Senate is a country club of legislators who all want what’s best for America because they aren’t.   Many of them are domestic enemies to our Constitution, and they say it in the open.  Why not take them at their word?  Why play nice with them?  Would you want history to remember you opening the door and letting in the Trojan Horse that destroyed the war?

Many would argue that the Trojan Horse has already been unleashed, that the battle has already been launched, and that the globalists are already marking the war won.  That it’s too late.  Well, for that to happen, suckers must give them the money like the robbers they are.  Like Jesse James holding up a train promising to let all the women and children live if only the train’s occupants would hand over all their money, the Democrats are doing the same with our country.  Remember, Jesse James was a staunch slave-owning Democrat, and he was and is just like these modern Democrats.  Thieves, radicals, and political insurgents.  They do not want to work together for a better country.  They want to hold us up, steal our money and our lives, and turn over our country to the globe for a reward in an upcoming insurgent government.  So, the robbery is taking place for the naysayers and negative barnacles who think the fight isn’t worth having, but the goods have not left our hands.  Raising the debt ceiling and renewing the federal government’s funding is when that takes place, and Republicans would do well to hold tight, even shoot it out with the bandits.  But don’t hand it over.

Republicans are talking tough about the upcoming vote.  Democrats are threatening to do it all without them, which would be fine.  Never put your name next to a loser.  The Democrats, through election fraud, have managed to take the House, the Senate, and the Presidency.  Let them choke on it.  Let them be the ones to fund all these ridiculous projects.  Let them be on the hook for it.  Let them hang on to it and make them pay later.  There will be a later if Republicans hold tight.  Burn the horse with all the troops in it. Don’t let them in the gate, then go to bed only to slaughter you in the night.  Kill it before it gets to you under hidden schemes and actions of aggression intent for other nations, not those of America.  It’s all very simple; without the shared guilt of a broken economy, of an outright insurrection, Democrats will be left alone and afraid.  They will have nobody but themselves to blame, and when it all comes crashing down, it will be their party that will feel it most.

Then and only then can we talk about reforms.   They can’t steal the votes of the Republicans in our republic.   They can override the votes, but they cannot steal them from a live person voting on the House floor and talking to the media after.  Do not give them the leverage of your acceptance.  Leave them alone on this, and ultimately to blame.  Americans will back a fighter.  They will not support an accomplice who helped rob them of their wealth and country.  The power is truly in our hands.  Democrats only win if we surrender.  At least make them fight for it.  Fire back for a change and play chicken with the intent to crash headlong into their ranks.  Be willing to take damage from the action.  But don’t play nice with them.  Playing nice will be a sure way to lose this game, and in losing, we lose our country to the forces obviously against it.  And even though it may be scary now, remember, history has a long memory.  Finding a little bravery today and standing up to these bandits and insurgents will be worth the memory tomorrow.  Yet yielding to them will only pay embarrassment for the rest of your lives and the memory of it in the centuries to come.

The World Bet Against America: What Edward Abilene and other socialists never figured out

The World Bet Against America, Bad Decision

Another reason I felt I had to write The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business is because many people consider America a great place, but they don’t understand why.  I thought I had always understood its essence, but how its evolution played out on the world stage leading up to some of the monstrosities we see in our current events, people didn’t have the proper context to grasp what was happening.  To write the book, I needed to visit some places to confirm my thoughts, and one of them was the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming.  I was after the essence as to what made America tick, and to get there; I needed to step back to before the progressive era and into the end of the reign of Queen Victoria to put my finger on it.  I would say that I discovered what I needed to, not just at the Buffalo Bill Center. Still, I visited along the way in many places, including the area where Wild Bill Hickok was shot in Deadwood and exploring the reasons for the murder, which is compelling.  For me, these events told the story of today, how we got here and what was wrong with it.  These discoveries certainly made it into my book, a unique collection of thoughts about American business and why they so quickly outwork other industries in the world.  And why there is so much global jealousy toward America.  It’s not something we did, but instead, it’s that we left the world behind, and like a jealous lover, they can’t get over it.  Well, I can say that the Buffalo Bill Center of the West gets it, and I honestly think that all youth in America should go there and study.  It would do them a whole lot more good than in going to their first year of college.  The same holds for all Americans and people worldwide who make the pilgrimage to that Center to touch the essence of Americana as Buffalo Bill showed it to the world at the turn of the last century. 

I always warn my kids about Liberal Springs (Yellow Springs, Ohio) because Antioch College is such a liberal institution that attracts all the dope-smoking hippies and other progressive degenerates.  It’s one of the most liberal areas in all of Ohio, made that way by the college that has been there for so long.  Most Americans have been made to feel guilty for passing judgment on a place of higher education, that is until recently.  But in the case of Yellow Springs, they would have saved themselves a lot of pain if they had been willing to call bad, bad from the beginning.  One of my daughters and her husband wanted to go up to Clifton Gorge to hike, and to get there; they stopped by Yellow Springs to get a Coke.  Because my daughter wasn’t wearing a Covid compliance mask, the server there refused to serve her and wanted her to leave.  After some dispute, my daughter went to McDonald’s next door to get her Coke, and they proceeded to hike at the Gorge.  While there, resting on a rock along the trail, a mall cop type of park ranger wanted to give them a citation for getting off the path by a few feet.  After more debate, they were told to leave.  The area of Yellow Springs had heard the Biden dog whistle and was moving toward full authoritarian, the kind of world liberals want for all of us.  Instead, my kids left the area, returned home, and went to a place much more conducive to their personalities, Premier Shooting in West Chester.  They spent the rest of the day there shooting and enjoying themselves with like-minded people who had not become corrupted by liberalism. 

The reason for that little story and the tie back to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West is that Edward Abilene had toured America with the daughter of Karl Marx in the late 1800s to measure the temperature the new nation would have for socialism.  Abilene had a strange attraction to Buffalo Bill in trying to understand Americans, which is why that Center was critical to understanding how Europe saw America.  At that time, Americans weren’t considered a threat, so England appeased the Buffalo Bill show the way a parent might indulge a child putting on a magic show for the first time, with a pat on the head and some upper lip encouragement.  But what they saw was a raw example of masculinity and weapons work that had conquered the wild frontier that had a new kind of art and culture to display, industry, endurance, tenacity, and courage.  The men of English society were more than a little threatened when English women were clamoring for these Buffalo Bill types, just as England as an empire was well on the decline.  They thought that America had no art, no history, no culture, and Europe was far superior.  They convinced many Americans to chase after the European standard and copy their religions, their colleges for higher learning, and other aspects of culture.  That is how the liberal was created in America.  Many other Americans like those in the Buffalo Bill show were new and mysterious in the world. They were not just attractive; they might become the most dominant organization of people on the face of the planet.  That was a threat to Europe and the old powers, and they have been anxious about it ever since. 

Liberals in America started creating colleges in the United States, like the one in Yellow Springs, to bring European culture to the new country.  Not so much to help America but to slow down its growth and ambitions.  During his tour of America and his relationship with Buffalo Bill, Abilene realized that Americans were looking for recognition from the old world the way a child seeks the approval of a parent.  So the plan to bring socialism to America was through such a process of shared art and culture.  Since then, America has had a restrictor plate applied to it, slowing it down to Europe’s liking.  It has also created a kind of subclass of European in the American liberal that is all the cause of conflict to this very day.  Such as the waitress in Yellow Springs who refused to serve my daughter a Coke or the overly zealous park officer at Clifton Gorge.  Americans have been made to feel guilty for all their ambitions and lack of culture, which Europe provided in exchange for a limiting relationship that has hindered America’s growth.  Now that all the cards are on the table and true feelings about each other have been revealed since Trump became president, it’s time to review all these relationships and decide how to move forward.  I would propose to leave the world behind and to force them to catch up if they want by adopting capitalism.  That would solve many of the problems in the world.  No government can provide that solution; it has to come from individuals who set the bar high and force the world to live up to it.  It might be a nightmare for Europe and Asia, but it is the way of the future, and for anybody curious about it, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West tells the story in ways that no place else does.   The world has bet on liberalism.  But what America created is what everyone wants, so that bet toward China will fall short because it’s not the best. 

Investors like Ray Dalio and companies like Walt Disney may have invested everything assuming that the world would turn back to the old and that hierarchical power would resume its work globally.  For them, they picked China and have hedged themselves behind that decision.  But, they should have read my book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business.  It would have saved them billions and trillions of dollars in lost revenue, which they will experience over the next decade.  I can understand their anxiety, but it’s their fault for not understanding what America was and thinking they could change it through academic means.  The Buffalo Bill Wild West show led to a yearning for freedom that created the country despite the world’s governments, and those forces are still at play.  Peer pressure isn’t going to return Americans to the grip of the old world. Instead, the entire government of America could be stripped away, including those compliant losers in Yellow Springs, yet Americans would still have an incredibly high GDP.  It was always a mystery to Edward Abilene and other Marxists who wanted to take over America and still do.  But they won’t be successful.  To understand why the Buffalo Bill Center of the West shows it.  Or, you can read my book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business

Covid Assassinations: It’s never been easier to get rid of political rivals

Covid Assassinations Are More Common Than You Think

It doesn’t impress me one bit to see so many articles written about conservatives who have died of Covid related conditions.  Specifically, the latest is the talk radio host and pastor Bob Enyart who died recently from complications of the virus after speaking out against vaccines and Covid-19 restrictions.  I can understand a few here and there dying of the virus, but each time a conservative who speaks out against Covid dies, and there has been quite a long list, the media makes a big deal about it as if to say, “see, he was a denier, and he died.  It could happen to you too!” In the video above, I discuss my past and my belief that some of these Covid deaths are assassin hits in disguise.  Based on my personal experience, it is easier to kill people now than at any point in the past.  Who needs a gun when someone gets Covid and is in the hospital.  The patient is vulnerable and under light security.  Visitors can come and go all the time, and they have to wear masks so no security camera can identify who visitors are.  Once someone checks into a hospital and opens themselves to drug treatment, a killer could have an easy time knocking off their mark without leaving behind a lot of evidence.  If someone dies with Covid, the death report is that they died “of” Covid.  Not from some drug injected into the body to make the heart stop.  And there you have it, a nice, bloodless killing that I know is something the government has done before and would certainly do again to protect itself from a skeptical public. 

I’m happy to have had the experiences that I have in my past.  At the time, many people questioned whether the things I learned during my early adult years were worth knowing or if I would grow up to be just another reckless soul.  But I will say, what I had by way of education allows me to see all these kinds of things.  People without those experiences might otherwise be lost to the motivations of bad people who use our government for their gain.  I knew several assassins personally, and I understand why they were hired and for how much and by whom.  Back then, things were much messier; people were killed for debts, insurance fraud, political malcontents, those kinds of things.  And sure, the killers felt bad about it in their way and needed someone to talk to.  You might ask, well, why didn’t I tell anyone?  Well, who was I going to tell?  I was also friends with some top judges in the city, and they all knew what was going on.  When the legal system gets involved in those kinds of killings, who is going to perform justice?  I wrote about my experiences with these types of things in one of my books, The Symposium of Justice.  The truth is, nobody cared about killing off political rivals because it was well understood on the inside as something as common as sunshine on a beach.  Like election fraud is common, but people don’t like to talk about it because it wants you to believe in that system with trust. 

I’ve said before when President Trump came down with Covid in October of 2020, right before the election, that it was a Democrat hit.  Many in the White House came down with Covid after a special ceremony for Amy Comey Barrett nominated to the Supreme Court.  Based on my experiences, I immediately thought that someone who had set up the chairs at the White House for that event would have spread coronavirus all over the seating area so that it would become a mass spreader.  Then the media could use the crises to drive a narrative of danger because Trump had a social gathering without socially distancing and wearing masks.  It would have been easy for a professional hit person to get on the ground crew team as a newer employee than to bring coronavirus into the event with a “sanitation” bottle and spray the virus everywhere that the President and other members of the White House would be that day.  Nobody in security would check to see what was in the bottle’s contents as the Covid protocols demanded such measures making such a hit all too easy.  As I said in the video, I doubt every death is a hit job.  Such as Herman Cain, who died early in the Covid process.  President Trump often talks about a friend of his, a big guy full of life who came down with Covid but died quickly while in an ICU in the hospital.  Not everything is a conspiracy, sometimes people die from stress to their bodies, and things wear out.  But if you are trying to convince a President to take Covid seriously, wouldn’t killing off someone he knows be a good way to get his attention?  People would be surprised how much the killing of people actually happens and how much the government knows about it.  After all, who’s going to bust them for it?  The FBI?  We all know what a joke that is.  The FBI might prosecute some garage mechanic for trying to build a new car with parts imported from some other country that didn’t fill out all the paperwork correctly.  But, if you want to kill off a political rival who has come down with Covid and has checked into a hospital to set up the killing, they could care less.  They won’t investigate. “How’s that Durham Report coming?  Where are Hillary’s emails?  When is Lois Lerner going to jail or James Comey?

And how do you think such people get Covid?  Perhaps it’s an Amazon driver pretending to deliver a package who rubs Covid on the doorknob of the target’s house.  The target comes down with a severe case of Covid then checks in to a hospital which is then put on an IV.  Hospitals are filled with nurses who can’t wait to return to their workstations to play on their phones.  They aren’t paying attention much to all the coming and going, especially now that everyone has to wear masks.  It would take nothing to walk into a Covid patient’s room and inject them with something deadly to tip them over the top, and within a few days, the target is dead.  Of course, that’s more fact than fiction.  Covid has made it easier than ever to kill off people who are problematic to an out-of-control government, so don’t kid yourself into believing that it’s not happening.   When the media comes out beating its chest every time a conservative dies of Covid, remember, it probably wasn’t an accident.  It was perhaps provoked by a hit person who is having an easy time getting rid of undesirables because Covid rules and quarantine mandates make an effort so easy now.  In the past, with guns and other methods, killing was a messy business, but now, it’s easy in the time of Covid.  Easier than ever.  The killings are meant to take out political rivals and give the media ink to drive a narrative.  Probably not in every case, but when the media is so quick to jump on every death of a skeptic, there is more to the story than just natural causes.  It would be nice if we could take things at face value.  But based on my experience, if you do, you’re stupid.

Lynda O’Connor Stands Up to Mask Mandates at Lakota: Pushing back against peer pressure to do the right thing

Whether or not anybody likes it, wearing masks in public or private to fight a viral outbreak is a Democrat thing that Republicans resent.  Masks show stupidity and a backward approach to science that thoughtful people find objectionable.  To put all your trust into experts in a field only to discover they are corrupt, stupid, superstitious, or worse—truly up to no good is a party-line thing that has stoked the fires of division, and that’s only going to get worse over time.  People’s unity under governor-driven executive orders under emergency conditions was a cry wolf moment that will never come back.  And that has left public schools since they are government institutions on the front line to do what they always do, hide behind children to evoke some progressive cause.  This is precisely what happened to Lakota, the school district in my neighborhood.  They have been one of the first to implement a mask mandate in the schools, which has angered parents. I’ve gone to school board meetings for years, and I’ve never seen one as contentious as this one, shown in the video included.  Of the five school board members, only one has done what the area Republicans expected. That is to refuse to wear the mask during public meetings. That has caused the union labor socialists to isolate her to direct their anger.  I have known Lynda O’Conner for several years, and she represents most of the people who reside within Lakota.  At the meeting, I intended to speak about how much I appreciate that Lynda was not wearing a mask and showed that someone on the board hadn’t been suckered into the mask mandate nonsense.  But after the parade of angry parents took turns criticizing the school board, it was clear I didn’t need to say anything.  Finally, in Lakota, other people were willing to do that, which was good to see.  If anything good came out of the mask mandates, it was that it had brought these divisions to the surface so that we can finally have these arguments.

Lakota School Board Meeting September 13th 2021

I could talk all day about how wrong masks are from an individual point of view. I’ve traveled to Asia, and I saw the mask-wearing that went on well before Covid ever hit.  In eastern cultures, they are compliance masks because the intent was to make the wearers superstitious to the mysteries of science and place the government ahead of all spirituality to become like a religion.  I figured while traveling that some bone-headed idiot in government would try to implement mask-wearing in the United States, which I was sure would be a problem.  There are always submissive types, too lazy, too stupid, too scared to think for themselves, who will do what a government says and put on a mask to fight a viral outbreak.  But in an area like the Lakota school district, many people are pretty smart Republicans and can think critically who think such an approach is one of the dumbest things anybody could do.  There are treatments for Covid, in hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, that are science and should be used to treat any outbreak.  But it’s evident that there is politics behind the virus, and not everyone is willing to play along.  Masks have become a symbol of submission to a sickness that Republicans find inconceivably stupid because scientific treatments could have ended Covid a year ago.  Instead, Democrats are using Covid to drive progressive needs, which has exposed school boards all over the country into playing along and forcing children to put on masks to get an education.

At the beginning of the Lakota school board meeting, you can hear it in their voices; the members had been planning to explain away all their problems with Covid to the local and state health department.  The ridiculous quarantine periods for anybody coming down with Covid or being near someone with the virus were missing many days of school. It was impossible to plan for teachers who would be out or bus drivers and other staff members.  So to appease the government, Lakota instituted a mask mandate for students, teachers, and staff, and magically the quarantine periods were minimized.  Because the health departments got what they wanted, the schools implemented a superstitious mask policy based on no science.  In effect, it was a bunch of Democrats who could suddenly boss around a bunch of Republicans and making them submissive to the party line.  When it comes to electing people to run things on our behalf, we elected the school board, and we expected them to put up more resistance on our behalf.  We didn’t elect the health department people who had no power to do anything, not even decide the quarantine period.  No legislation will hold up in court backing a health directive on quarantine periods, mask mandates, or mandatory vaccines.  Only stupid, lazy people would fall for such a thing, so the parents that night at the school board had a right to be angry, and that anger isn’t going to go away.  People pay a lot of money in taxes to Lakota, so for it to turn toward the Democrat superstitions of virus management is something most Republicans aren’t willing to do.  And of the school board members, only Lynda O’Conner stood firm and represented the people of the district adequately. 

At the end of the meeting, Lynda spoke about the pressure she was feeling by not wearing a mask on the board as one parent had attempted to get her in trouble over her position.  The mask shaming is a problem that Democrats brought on themselves.  The attempt to use peer pressure to invoke actual policy has not forced compliance; it has instead brought out intense anger.  When people wonder why we are so divided as a nation, Democrats have attempted to drag Republicans into socialism and communism.  And they have tried to hide those attempts behind health directives.  Most health officials could easily be working in communist China because their ideology is aligned with such dictatorships.  I admired Lynda for being the only member not to wear a mask.  Sure, I understand peer pressure.  I feel it too, but I’m always the only one of the first to do things in my life.  If there is a room full of a million people with masks on and I’m the only one not wearing one, I wouldn’t feel a moment’s pressure to put one on to conform.  Conformity to peer pressure is a largely Democrat thing.   Republicans tend to think on their own, so as long as Democrats try to shove Republicans into some blind compliance, there will be a fight or many fights.  A school board like Lakota should know better and strive to represent the community they are functioning in.  But most of the board and their employees are progressive types, so they quickly adopted the mask mandates to drive the social narrative.  And now they have been caught on it and are on the hook with the rage of the community.   No matter their personal feelings, they should have known better and respected the community they were operating in and pushed back against the health departments as our elected representatives.  Instead, they caved quickly and forced compliance on the rest of us, which is what the anger showed at that meeting was all about.

The Abuse of Joe Biden: “WASH YOUR HANDS!”

Laura, Wash Your Hands!

As I watched Joe Biden’s delivery of the vaccine mandate executive order, what had been very clear to me from the beginning suddenly sharpened into a tight focus that was unapologetically truthful.  I knew that tone from fiction, from what I consider the most terrifying movie ever made.  That movie is also a very uncomfortable reflection of real-life and the truth of abuse that many people suffer from.  The film is Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, and specifically, what Joe Biden was doing to the American public was attempting to do what Leland Palmer, the father in the movie, was doing to his daughter, Laura Palmer, at the famous dinner scene.  In the scene, the dad is scolding his daughter for having dirty hands as he unabashedly berates her to wash her hands.  The mother sits at the table crying because layers of truth exist outside of her accepted reality.  She knows, but she can’t understand what her husband is doing to their daughter.  Only what’s so scary about this scene is the honesty of it.  I can think of hundreds if not thousands of homes that go through the same rituals, child abuse even into the late teens of a child who wants to be loved by their parents; only the reality is unreachable, sending the child into a perilous course for the rest of their lives.  In this case, the situation is the worst of the worst and is much more common than anybody would care to admit.  The problem goes far beyond the MAGA movement or the globalist desires for communism. Biden’s speechwriters knew what they were doing, and they were targeting the Laura Palmer types in the world, those suffering from abuse current and past, who are scared for life and looking to the government to relieve them of their pain.  The government was using this pain of abused people to sell their vaccine mandate then to use peer pressure to push the rest of us into it.  This tactic is common in abused families, and few movies dig deep into the problem like Fire Walk With Me did.  The biggest evil of the film is that the father is raping his daughter routinely, and when she starts to catch on, he asserts his authority over her in ways like the “wash your hands” scene.  To keep her mind from discovering that he is the source of all her pain. 

Wash Your Hands!

Laura can’t deal with the fact that her father is raping her, just as many people today can’t deal with the reality that their government is crooked, evil, and out to hurt us all. It’s a reality they won’t accept.  In the case of Laura from the film, she has painted on her father’s face a character named “Bob” as the demon who possesses his body and rapes her often after drugging the mother to sleep so that the father can climb into Laura’s window at night.  Laura can’t accept that her father would do such a thing to her, so what she sees is “Bob.” The movie lets the viewer decide if Bob is a spirit, a demon, or just a psychological device created by a hurt little girl to protect herself from emotional collapse.  This wall of protection comes crashing down one day when Laura comes home early from school in the middle of the day when nobody is supposed to be home.  She goes into her room and finds Bob going through her stuff.  She only deals with Bob at night in her bed, so seeing him in her room without the protection of intoxicants that she takes before going to sleep was a crisis.  So, she fled the house and hid behind some bushes down the road.  She watches for Bob to come out running after her, but what she sees instead is her father leaving the house. That’s how she learns that Bob and her father are the same people.  And she has a major emotional breakdown with that realization. 

Fire Walk With Me

Leland, the father, knows that his daughter is on to him when they all sit down at the dinner table after that incident.  So, he knows he has to shock the little girl back to her submissive role.  That is when he starts berating her over washing her hands.  He knows she knows, so he needs to get her to back up the psychological barriers hiding their secret.  The mom knows all about what’s been going on; she allows herself to be drugged to have plausible deniability for herself.  She doesn’t want to acknowledge this vast evil because it would force her to change her life, and she is mostly comfortable with her life.  She doesn’t want to be courageous.  She just wants to smoke cigarettes and pretend she has a good life.  She wants nothing to crack that illusion.  But Leland realizes that he can’t keep this relationship with his daughter going forever.  She has too many boyfriends, too many snoopy other people stepping into their lives, and he sees he is losing control and can’t hide the secret anymore, even by force.  So, he does what most do at this point, whether within a simple family or a massive government run by the same type of people; they seek to kill those who make them vulnerable to discovery.  At the end of the movie, the father kills the daughter and dumps her dead body in the river, sparking the television series that everyone knew so well from the 90s. 

Reading What’s Behind Everything

I used to know a major political operative in the Cincinnati area who invited me to her lavish house in Indian Hill.  She did not have a loving relationship with her husband, who lived in the Caribbean for most of the year.  They maintained a marriage in that way.  Rather than divorce, they just lived apart.  So this lady was looking for some company when she invited me over.  To avoid anything uncomfortable, I suggested to this lady that she watch my favorite scary movie, which we did.  It turns out she cried like a baby and was in a fetal position on the floor by the end.  It turns out she suffered from abuse worse than what Laura Palmer did in the movie, but the psychology of the film was so accurate that it opened up a mountain within her that she has spent her life covering up.  But it was the source of her bad marriage, need for wealth, and interest in politics.  The reason she had bad relationships with her children.  As I watched her crawl around on the ground crying uncontrollably with snot rolling out of her nose and all the glamor of what money could buy thrown out the window by this emotional breakdown, I realized how powerful and common Fire Walk With Me was as a movie.  How many people were suffering out there from the same type of abuse? 

Its Color is Green

Governments know it too, and they know how to exploit such people when they want power.  Joe Biden was essentially telling America to “Wash Their Hands.” That we weren’t going back to normal until everyone got vaccinated.  But the crime has been election fraud, deals with China, debacles in Afghanistan, a purposely torpedoed economy.  Dear reader, Joe Biden wasn’t talking to us; we hear that kind of talk, and we’re ready to kick someone’s ass.  But what the Biden people wanted to happen was to tip off all the big-government types out there who are victims of abuse and get them to shame the rest of us into compliance with government mandates to hide their massive crimes, which they are guilty of.  And for them, the panic is in how long they can keep us asleep, drugged, and not asking the critical questions of how they are abusing us purposely.  The government knows we know what they have been doing to us, so they only can do what all abusers do, crank up the intimidation and hope it puts our society back to sleep.  But like in that movie, where the father knows that things are getting too hot to conceal his secret, they start thinking of that next step.  And when they get to that point, we should all be ready.  Because it’s all, they have left to mask their vile actions of evil and maliciousness.

Darbi Boddy Knew: The stupidity of the current Lakota school board and their mask mandates

The Current Lakota School Board was Too Lazy to Know What they Needed to

In all the same ways that the Biden executive orders on mandatory vaccinations violated all kinds of laws, the government’s push to bluff their way into putting masks on school children in public schools has been reprehensible and frightening to people.  And it’s even worse when you are a person who knows better.  When you know the government has overstepped its mandate and is acting dangerously, they almost dare the public to act.  For them to gain so much power, they need a lot of dumb people, like what we have on the current Lakota school board.  They are dumb because they allowed themselves to be completely scammed by the Butler County Health Department, who is still angry that they lost their emergency powers when the House and Senate took those powers away from Governor Mike DeWine early in 2021.  Most people don’t see politics everywhere; my readers here do, but most people don’t, so they don’t understand what’s behind it all.  And that’s usually fine for average, ordinary people.  But for people who want to be in leadership positions, it’s reprehensible to be stupid. After a recent debate with the West Chester Tea Party featuring candidates for the Lakota school board, the current insiders showed clearly why everything is so expensive.    Why they have been caught tossing money at the teacher’s union recklessly, and how little they had managed anything at the government school.  When the question was asked, “how much authority do you believe the Butler County Health Department has over Covid policy in public schools,” the current school board did not know the answer, all of them.  Amazingly, the current board members and one of their hand-picked replacements for Brad Lovell all answered the same way: they did not believe they had any authority on the school board to resist a health order from the department of health.  But the challengers all got the answer right to a certain extent; Vanessa Wells, Karine Chausee, Issac Adi all understood that the health department and the government, in general, had no rights to mandate Covid protocols in a public setting.  But Jodi Boddy, who has put some effort into this issue, knew the answer in detail and said so on the video included in this article.  She is correct. The health department, any health department, just like the CDC, can make recommendations.   They cannot make law.  That is unless a governor under emergency orders so empowers them.  And as I said, those powers were taken away from Governor Mike DeWine because he had abused them in the way many blue-state governors had during Covid. 

Darbi Boddy Knows Better

I heard the Brad Lovell replacement, Douglas Horton, talk about how smart he was as a brand marketer at P&G, yet when he had to answer this straightforward question, he had no idea what the answer was.  And if he wants to lead a school board with thousands of people employed under it or attending the school, they look to him to know these kinds of things.  Darbi knew.   Kelley Casper is on the board now and was part of the decision-making process on the mask mandates. She dared to sit there and tell the crowd that the health department has the right to order them around on many things and that the ridiculous quarantine policy they had come up with was worse than making students wear masks.  Why didn’t she know that she didn’t even have to follow the quarantine policy? Nobody elected those health officials.  They are appointed to do a job, but the procedure is not set with them, except under emergency orders, and we aren’t under an emergency.  That is set at the state level, and as I said, DeWine lost that power.  Biden will lose his power, too, because he has no constitutional grounding for anything he is doing.  He counts on suckers not knowing better and trusting what they are told, just as Douglas Horton, Kelly Casper, and Michael Pearl did when the Butler County Health Department told them they had to dance to the quarantine protocols or wear a mask.  Because they were lazy and didn’t read and understand the law, they just accepted that what they were told was true.  Which, of course, is stupid.

Out of all the questions that evening, I felt that one about the health department showed clearly the problems with this current school board at Lakota.  They are not intellectually curious about what they are supposed to be doing.  They get pushed around by the state; they get pushed around by the health departments; they get pushed around by the teacher’s union and for what, because of something Michael Pearl said in his answer, that when his car breaks, he hires experts to fix it.  And that’s what the Lakota school board does with everything.  Darbi Boddy had done the research and did talk to health experts.  She knows the difference between a “recommendation” and an “order.” We don’t just get ordered around by unelected bureaucrats, but we do elect our school board.  We expect leadership out of them to ask those kinds of questions.  Yet, nobody involved with the current board knew the answer.  They know how to ask the lawyers for Lakota what they should do, and of course, lawyers will always take the safest path on everything.  After all, most of them are lazy too and want to get paid and move on to the next case.  So for dumb people who aren’t asking many questions, a lawyer will say “no.” “Don’t challenge the health department most of the time. Don’t challenge the state.  Do what they tell you to so that if some panicky parent sues the district, you can always punt to them as your guidance.” But that’s not very ethical; what about the poor kids who have to sit in a class all day wearing a mask for a virus that the government decided was going to be about the “Great Reset,” and was based on no science whatsoever but was instead about everything involving global politics.  Kids don’t need to be wrapped up in that mess.

We can only imagine how many other mistakes this current Lakota school board has made involving everything.  If they arrive at their decisions the way they did with Covid and the mask mandates, it’s no wonder things are so screwed up.  And they only have themselves to blame.  The information is out there; it’s easy to get.  Darbi Boddy knew the answer.   There isn’t a path for any health department or any government agency to win anything involving Covid in a court of any law.  Many of us are shocked by the overreach of government, but when we elect school board members, we expect them to work hard to know things.  And this mask mandate thing was an easy one.  At least one of those school board members should have understood that the health departments only had the power to recommend actions.   They could not order anything.  No court of law anywhere could hold a case for even the little things that Covid protocols have required. Biden thought he could get away with this mandatory vaccination action since it has worked to some extent with these school boards across the country.  That is what happens when you put people with very little intellectual curiosity into positions of power, like on a school board.  Lucky for us. Finally, we have a choice.  We have four good candidates to replace three seats in Lakota.  And, by the way they answered this one simple question, it’s obvious why all three of those current board members need to go and go fast.
