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

Vote for Todd Minniear for Liberty Township Trustee

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We Love an Angry Trump, because we are Angry

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vote No by Saying Yes: How Great Issac Adi and Darbi Boddy are for Lakota

Issac Adi and Darbi Boddy for Lakota School Board

I could tell you many stories about politics that are dire and would make you want to climb under a rock and never get involved again.  But sometimes, some stories are fantastic, and that is the case with the two endorsed Lakota school board candidates, Issac Adi and Darbi Boddy, who are running to replace incumbent Democrats in November of 2021.  Every event I have been to with these two has been good; a few examples are shown below.  The video might be a little rough, but it’s what they say that matters.  Darbi and Issac work well together and are as unselfish as I’ve ever seen in politics, in any position. I’ve said from the beginning that I supported four candidates for the school board, but in this race this year, the Republican endorsement is what matters.  In the past, liberals have infected the school board, so critical race theory and transexual policies became part of the dominant conversation. They have managed to hide their intentions by calling the school board “nonpartisan.” Well, we know that nothing in politics is “nonpartisan,” especially the Lakota school board.  But when this idea of supporting school board members for Lakota came up, I never thought that two of them who would win the endorsement would like each other so well. That’s when the “can you imagines” started coming to my mind, where the school board represented the conservatives of Butler County, Ohio truly, and that they worked well together.  It’s one thing to have conservative votes on the board to manage things the way voters expect, but that they would perform functional management is a bonus that didn’t seem possible. 

Vote for Darbi Boddy

For instance, Issac Adi went door to door in my precinct, letting people know who he was and when to vote for him.  My wife noticed him in our neighborhood, and they struck up a conversation at the end of my driveway.  Issac recognized her immediately, which I thought was remarkable considering the number of people he has met over several months, including big names like Jim Jordan.  I would imagine his head is spinning with all the people he’s had to shake hands with, so it did impress me that he remembered my wife.  That is one thing about Issac Adi; he is one of the most sincere people I’ve ever met in politics.  He truly cares and is a good person.  So he remembers people and cares about them long after the handshake.  Of course, he wanted to know where I was which my wife told him I was babysitting my grandkids inside the house.  So he came up to see me and talk for a bit. 

After talking and catching up, I noticed that Issac wore Darbi’s campaign sticker on his shirt.  He was doing the hard work of going door to door on a pretty hot day, full of enthusiasm after talking to many hundreds of people personally, and he was promoting Darbi along the way.  Now I know that they are both endorsed and are part of the same team.  But the way the vote occurs, they very much have to run individually.   The top vote-getters are the ones who win in these kinds of elections, and it’s always hard to beat an incumbent.  The union vote and latte-sipping liberals always show up on election night, making it hard for conservatives to get a lot of votes.  But here was Issac promoting Darbi just as much as he was promoting himself.  And as I understand it, Darbi has been doing the same.  She was out promoting her and Issac as a team, not just individual candidates.  For any election, that is a pretty unique concept that doesn’t have a lot of historical precedents. 

Adding their votes to that of the current Lynda O’Conner would be a game-changer at Lakota.  I have been to other events where I have seen the three of them talking, and the chemistry is just there.  You can see it from a long way off. I’ve been dealing with school board issues in many districts around Ohio for twenty years, and I have never seen such a good combo.  Seeing Issac that day took some of my natural cynicism toward politics into a place it had never been before.  It seemed possible that at Lakota, something good had a chance to happen.  They are both so much better than the other alternatives, and if people had an opportunity to see that for themselves, these two could get elected.   There are still very significant obstacles, but as hard as they have worked throughout September and into October, it seemed like more than a fantasy and more of an eventual reality.  Usually, when I think of the Lakota school board, I typically think of severe dysfunction and people who do not know what they are doing with the money.  But here were genuinely competent and hard-working people who actually liked each other, at least as much as I’ve ever seen in politics, and there was a chance for great things to happen at Lakota for the first time in forever. 

Vote for Issac Adi for Lakota School Board

Issac had to eventually leave and return to the campaign trail from my house, but it took a while.  I enjoyed his company so much that it took us a long time to say goodbye that day.  I can say that I have been talking actively with many of the old No Lakota Levy people preparing ourselves for levy fights in the years to come.  The current school board has been trying to find the time to put one up for a vote to satisfy the out-of-control spending the teacher’s union expects.  This was an election year. Otherwise, the current board would have proposed a tax increase this year.  Likely, they’ll wait until next year now that they’ve agreed to give all those teachers sitting home on Covid excuses a raise that they’ll have to pay for next year.  But a levy fight is so damaging.  It’s much better to support a new school board that would manage the money that we already give them, which is a massive 200 million-plus budget.  If you can’t teach 17,000 kids on that, you have problems.  But the school board has never listened. Instead, they have attacked businesses for more money, like trolls always looking for a shakedown of tax revenue to pay for their reckless and infinite spending ultimately. Lakota’s school board has been deficit spending for their entire existence; no matter how much money we’ve given them, they never find a way not to spend more than they take in.  When they did have a surplus for a bit because of declining enrollment, they couldn’t wait to waste it on something new.  With this prospect of an actual conservative school board to replace the majority of liberals, great things can happen.  Issac and Darbi have done the work to get people to know who they are.  Now it will be up to the voters.  For the first time in many of their lifetimes, they have a great choice as the Lakota school district residents.  They can vote for the same old tax and spend liberals that have screwed up so much at Lakota.  Or, they can vote for Issac Adi and Darbi Boddy, who enjoy each other, work hard, and care to give the board a conservative majority for the first time.  If voters don’t vote for them, then when the tax increases come, people won’t be able to complain about it because they had a chance to say no to those tax increases by saying yes to Darbi Boddy and Issac Adi.

Shooting From the Hip: The cost of socialism in any society

Don’t Learn to Stay in Your Lane

While I was working on the themes for my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, one of my most important stops was the British Museum and sitting in the places where Karl Marx had written his books that literally changed the world.  While in London for this investigation, I took my family to the best restaurants and spent some time investigating the areas around parliament to understand the radical swings of their class structure and how anybody could even think that what Marx put down in his books was good.  After sitting in Marx’s same seats in the museum, I confirmed what I already knew; Marx was lazy and worked his ass off to prove it.  Yes, that is a paradox of terms, but that was what the guy was suffering from.  While his family sat at home, broke and hungry, Marx and Engles at the British museum tried to show the world why the capitalists were evil.  And many in British society who enjoyed the nice things in life felt guilty because they either acquired a lot of power from socializing or other methods, and it rotted their minds with unearned doubt.  So they formed political parties like the Labor Party in England and the Democrat Party in America.  Other places around the world, too, adopted Marx not because they thought it would make a better world but because it gave more centralized power to governments. Hence, the idiocy of Karl Marx spread like wildfire in a dry forest, and rage of destruction swept over the world.  But to my thinking, fires are good, and it benefits people to see things for themselves. That’s why what I wrote in my book was necessary.  Without the stupidity of Karl Marx to highlight the benefits of capitalism with a defense of it in my Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, people may never have seen the differences between the two. 

Learning to Get Better

That’s what has happened with Marxism mixed in with capitalism; people didn’t notice the little things slowing us all down and constraining productivity.  Marxism has embedded itself in almost everything we do, but people did not see it as it was happening because as long as they could buy their cars, get milk at the grocery, and send their kids to school, they didn’t pay much attention.  But I did notice that it has been a source of constant frustration for me during my entire professional life, which started when I was still a teenager.  One thing about me that has always been criticized was that I “shot from the hip” too much.  People would say that I didn’t take careful aim in my life and take my time when shooting at targets.  That, of course, was a metaphor for my thought processes in how I manage things.  To others, I have always been the reckless cowboy who was too impulsive to be trusted.  Yet mysteriously, everything I have always touched succeeded.  I understood it on a conceptual level, but years later, when I would finally write a book about it, I had to understand it.  Like Marx, many people in the world are too lazy to become truly good at anything.  They grow up, they grow lazy, and they are content to be average.  So they bring this attitude to their businesses, and for their lazy minds, Marx was a kindred spirit.  While they wanted to make money in life, they didn’t want to work too hard to get it, so they adopted little bits of socialism along the way to make it so that they wouldn’t have to work too hard.  This point became very obvious to me once I started the sport of professional gunfighting for competitions.  I watched for years how real gunfighters could draw and shoot a gun by drawing from the hip in under a second.  It seemed impossible to me, but I wanted to learn to do it, so I began the learning process, and once I figured it out, all these other elements became very obvious.  Obvious enough to write a book about what I learned.

Shooting from the Hip is Good

One of the premises of communism is equality, which we hear about all the time now that Biden has been inserted in the White House to preserve these gains Marxists have made around the world.  But for equality to indeed happen, we must cripple those who are the best and fastest in life at certain things.  I often compare this metaphor to a hay bail truck full of farm animals traveling down the road at 45 miles per hour.  Up behind them, storming down the highway at 120 miles per hour, is a fancy sports car that can take curves on a dime and run all day long at 200 mph.  Socialist society says that the fancy car has to stay behind the truck because that is the constraint, that is the average, and to be fair, everyone needs to build their life off the average.  The speedy car is supposed to slow down to 45 mph and not pass.  Socialist society creates rules like double yellow lines to keep everyone staying in their lane so that socialism and communism can occur.  However, in America, the rules have always been in reverse.  The fast car was encouraged to pass or have a speed lane to travel in to go as fast as possible.  Speed limits aren’t made for the best and most competent; they are made for the average, the slow, and the lazy-minded.  Those who can’t or won’t think too fast to avoid an accident.  Therefore, the speedy car is penalized and encouraged to be less than it is in a democracy where the majority of the people decide what the average behavior should be.  This is how our businesses have been crippled and how the government has enforced converting America from capitalism to socialism over time.  Through rules and regulations intended to force people to stay in their lanes, not shoot from the hip, and ignite Karl Marx while suppressing Adam Smith.

I’ve always been that guy who shot from the hip, and I’m very proud of it.  Even now that I’m later in my life than when many of these things have been said about me, learning to shoot in Cowboy Fast Draw activities has shown me the essence of becoming better each day.  What seems impossible today may be quite possible tomorrow if only you put a little work into it.  That is what America did best in the past and still is better than anyplace else in the world mired in socialism and communism.  This is also how many of our corporations had become so woke, just as the politicians of England did when scrappy old Karl Marx worked himself to death trying to create a philosophy of government that justified his laziness.  I didn’t feel I could say that based on just my opinions of reading his books.  But I could say it after I sat in his seats and saw the world from all of their perspectives.  Marxism and its birthplace there in London intended to be in the world that hey bail truck going 45 miles per hour.  They created rules in life to protect the feelings of the slow and lazy from the speedy and competent.  And when they called me names like “cowboy” and a person who “shoots from the hip” too much, they might as well have been calling me the most derogatory names humans could call each other, hoping to peer pressure me into accepting average behavior.  But I never will.  Instead, I’ll explain the differences to people with a mind to hear it, and I’m not about to ever accept getting stuck behind slow traffic on the highway.  The goal of all of us should always be to get faster, wiser, and better.  Not to accept the lazy and dim-witted who want to rule the world but are too lazy to do it.

Anna Perez Understands: Overcoming America’s inferiority complex and becoming your own shepherd

Overcoming America’s Inferiority Complex

As I was promoting my new book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business,I discovered the show on Real America’s Voice, The Water Cooler, with David Brody.  I contacted the producer Anna Perez about coming on and talking about the book’s contents because it seemed that they would be interested.  This is the same network that produces The Warroom and Dr. Gina, so they have some good things going on there that people are just discovering.  I certainly fit in that category.  Here I was promoting a book, but my personal feelings limited my reach to an audience with clear parameters regarding the massive amounts of injustice that we see play out politically.  So Fox News was out.  Newsmax was too wishy-washy.  They wanted to be a Fox replacement, but they were shying away from the real sources of the problem.  One American News was stuck in what we’ll talk about here, a kind of inferiority complex common among conservatives for all the reasons we’ll discuss.  So what I found in Real America’s Voice was something different.  They were confident, hungry, and asking all the hard questions.  I had a person the other day asking me on Gettr what a replacement for Fox was during a discussion and when I said Real America’s Voice, they shunned it away as if it was a radical right-winged network of religious freaks.  To that, I could only say, the crazy lunatics who are the current problem in the United States would say that anything to the right of Vladimir Lenin is a “radical right-winger.” The entire political scale has been moved and measured so that I would reject the whole premise.  Real America’s Voice represents most American beliefs, and I have found I enjoy them very much.  And I have become quite a fan of Anna Perez’s produced show The Water Cooler.  It’s more fun than The O’Reilly Factor, which made Fox News what it became, and it indeed points to the future of what our country will become once we sort out all this current mess and get Trump, DeSantis, or Kristi Noem in the White House again. 

Anna Perez has done several shows over the last several weeks when she has hosted The Water Cooler as David Brody has been out, that deals with the lack of masculinity in our culture.  Of course, we all know why, especially now.  Our society was primed for a global takeover, and the attackers wanted an easy way. So they watered down the necessity of men with all kinds of sexual viewpoints that would underline toxic masculinity in our culture and replace it with this kind of “beta” male that most women don’t want.  The rest of the world doesn’t identify with masculinity these days, and they certainly understood that to conquer the United States, men needed to be neutralized.  So of all the news reporting going on, Anna has been contemplating why we have allowed ourselves to fall for this concept of toxic masculinity in a busy news cycle.  It’s at the source of everything bad that has been happening to us as a country.  When attacked, the men are running away; they are not standing and fighting.  This goes back to every time society told us that it was OK to cry; we should all hug and express our feelings.  When public schools started promoting this kind of behavior twenty years ago, more people should have seen the intent.  But here we are, and Anna Perez is one of the only ones out there these days asking the question correctly and often.

I essentially wrote my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business as an answer to this problem.  It is a guidebook to solving many of these contemporary issues.  But to sum it up concisely to answer the question, I discovered the answer at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, as my book was going through the last parts of the editing process with the publisher.  I had long been thinking the same things as Anna has been, where are the men, why are they so ashamed, and how could we wake them up?  Well, oddly, the answer is one that essentially answers the old Saul Alinsky question about Christians and how the left can permanently paralyze conservatives into defensive positions when attacked.  The leftist attackers exploit a part of the conservative brain that puts them perpetually on the defensive, and now with the lack of manhood to defend such actions, there was no defense mechanism.  This was further obvious to me while at a funeral recently where the church was decorated with images of the shepherd guarding the flock of sheep, meaning Jesus playing the role of shepherd and the congregation being the sheep. That’s an excellent idea in church, but when some crazy leftists step in and take out the shepherd, they gain control of the sheep, and that’s what we find has happened to us.  The sheep might be upset about it, but they still follow whoever the shepherd is.  So for the world’s malcontents and evildoers, they understand that the way to beat conservative America is to fight to become their shepherd.  Replace their god with government, and most of the battle is already over.

I propose in my book for the reader to become their own shepherd and look back to the great gunfighters of American culture as the reference.  Take away the willingness to cooperate as a group of sheep and be your own shepherd.  It will help your business, your community, but most of all, your family.  But there is an additional problem that must be solved, which I discovered at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. It’s the inferiority complex that most Americans have about how young our country is and how we assume that Europe and other places are wiser than we are because of the depth of their history in arts and sciences.  While Buffalo Bill was touring his Wild West show around Europe, even he became enchanted with the Europeans honoring him as a great representative of American culture. That endorsement filled a need that he and most Americans had to be respected by the mother country.  Even now, most Americans still view Europe as the big brother or parent to impress.  There are many great things about America, but our weakness is that we don’t have a vast history of showing that our culture works instead of the other cultures around the world who do have deep histories.  That inferiority complex has prevented us from fully embracing an America First platform.  Sure, there are 30% of all people who get it.  But there is still another 20% who are too insecure about assuming that they are equal or even better off than European or Asian culture.  Then there are the below-the-line thinkers beaten in life who become liberals and want to be sheep all their lives. 

I talk about all this in the clip above; it’s a topic that could use much discussion.  But Anna Perez is tapping into the issue by identifying the toxic masculinity problem.  We can see the shadows of the conspiracy, which is undoubtedly a global trend.  I remember reading the Fifty Shades books a few years ago to understand why women were so hungry for those books, which were essentially about sadomasochism.  I found the lead character repulsive and excessively weak.  From a female perspective, there were all kinds of things going on. The politics of our times have sought to remove men from society to expose that need in women.  The goal has been to replace men as the family’s shepherd and replace them with the government.  It was essentially a coup of every American home.  I wrote my book as a guide to get out of that cycle and to think not just like a man again, but as a culture of shepherds, not sheep.  And what makes us that way, and why are Americans different than other places in the world?  Well, it starts with the invention and cultivation of the gun in our culture.  Not as a weapon of death and destruction.  But in becoming shepherds of our destiny and leaders of business, industry, and family.

Covid’s Goal as a Bioweapon was meant to Destroy the American Workforce: Europe and Asia wanted to flatten our tires

Covid is all About Controlling the American Workforce

The longer that Covid goes on, the more obvious it is that in Asia and Europe, where it was born, it was designed to ruin the American workforce hoping to handicap our GDP because the rest of the world cannot compete.  Sure they did Covid protocols worldwide, but you know what they want to do in the Davos crowd; they want to penalize America any way they can so their economies can catch up.  China has made it well known they intend to have the world’s largest economy in a few years. Yes, they want to penalize America in any way possible to surpass the incredible magic that America produces with only 300 million people.  Think about that, such a small group of people in the world produces so much GDP.  With all its 1.4 billion people, China still can’t produce as much as we can because they are communists.  Too much limit on wealth creation, of course, will stagnate production at the level of wealth creation.  At the World Economic Forum over the last several years, the word “Great Reset” has been attached to a build-back better approach from their point of view in a post-Covid world.  But who are we building back better for, and why did we tear it down in the first place.  Why did everyone in the world do what they did with Covid and not the SARs virus of 2018?  Because the white coat experts in government who run these health departments are Marxists, and they want to see America crippled, even within our own country.  So they have used Covid as an excuse to destroy the American workforce and cripple our GDP allowing other countries to overtake us finally.  Just remember, they can’t compete directly because they have not embraced capitalism.  Instead, they want to flatten our tires so that they can hopefully pass us up. They don’t plan to do better than us.

One of my goals with The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business was to assure anybody reading it that the only way to have a flourishing economy is by getting out of the way of productivity so that creativity can flourish and produce new things.  That is the essence of the American economy and why 300 million people can out-produce the world so quickly.  If you travel through Europe, you will see it.  People are pretty casual about work; they don’t connect it to their lives as Americans do.  Generally, service is terrible in Europe; people take too many breaks and for too long.  And they take way too many days off work.  Now, in Asia, the workers are very industrious.  They will work from sun up to sun down for a bowl of rice.  If only that element were considered, it has been thought that they would quickly out-produce the United States.  The trouble is, working is only part of the equation.  You don’t just need workers to fill a job, but you need riverboat gambler types to start businesses for people to work in, and in America, small business is the key to the whole puzzle.  That is why there is so much diversity in America, where there is somebody somewhere making just about anything.  So to create those businesses, individual risk-takers come into play in ways that the rest of the world has never figured out because their governments run everything.  They don’t have a means for self-initiation the way we do in the United States. 

It is evident to me that the rest of the world still doesn’t get it.  They have tried to penalize those types of Americans, risk-takers, and workers with Covid protocols to stunt their growth.  To tie them down with unnecessary regulation, CDC policies, and sheer fear of death.  But it hasn’t stopped the machine.  Every day, I see people thinking creatively to get around the regulations and invent new ways to be productive.  This is something that socialist countries and communist outposts like China do not understand.  Even with all their subject analysis, they are still grossly oblivious to what makes America work and the fresh ground of freedom that produces so much GDP.  The prospect in America that any class system, upper, middle, or lower class is just one lucky step away from wealth is the driver of the GDP.  When I say that my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business has the power to crush all these jealous countries, this is the way to do it, by unleashing the need for personal freedom.   What makes America different is that we do not have a class system.  Democrats and many RINO Republicans would like us to have one. They’d love to stick us all in the Middle Class and to take orders from the government.  But people in America want opportunities and find it fun to pursue those opportunities at all costs.  You can see this magic happening in cities in America where gambling is embraced.  Casinos show Americans best, not in the crazy lady who hasn’t bathed in four weeks smoking a cigarette at a slot machine at 3 in the morning hoping to hit it big after 40 years of gambling finally, but in the ambition to change their life status by a lucky win.  If it’s not in casinos, you can see the same in Fantasy Football and other sports. 

It used to be that Americans were considered jealous of Europe and Asia for their rich histories of culture.  They looked down on us because we didn’t have deep ties to literature and art.  The American cowboy and farmer up early and working to the sun setting without direction from some government was perplexing. They thought we only did it because we didn’t have any culture to enjoy.  You can see this attitude easily on display at the Louvre in Paris.  They think of Americans as hyper and impatient and always serving the all mighty dollar.  A dollar that has controlled the world’s economic standard for a long time now. Don’t kid yourself that they are so jealous of us that they wouldn’t torpedo our economy any way possible, even if it hurt themselves in the process.  They, and I mean “they” within the United Nations and the World Economic Forum, came up with Covid protocols the way they did to cripple the American economy and stagnate what they thought was the power of the American worker.  They wanted to see Americans on unemployment and calling off work over every little sniffle because they hoped that they could cripple the American GDP in such a way.  They hope Covid quarantine rules will take workers away from industry to slow down the machine of American business.  It was on purpose!  It always was.  It was never about saving people from a virus. Still, it was always about using the medical industry to control economic activity so that the world could join as one under the United Nations.  To do that, America had to come down off its high horse and be like the rest of the world so that global Marxism could provide the “Great Reset.” And your local health directors joined the cause because they studied in all the same places and think all the same ways, that Marxism is the way of the future.  And Americans were going to accept it one way or another.

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.

Issac Adi: The Superstar of Lakota

Issac Adi for Lakota School Board

I’ve been a fan of Issac Adi, the very bright star within the Lakota school district running for the school board. He’s talented, smart, hardworking, extremely likable. He’s just a beautiful person in all the ways anybody could hope.  But I was wondering if it was just me who thought that way.  After all, I’ve been hoping for good conservative candidates to run for the Lakota school board for years.  And when we did get them on the school board, the current board would assassinate them in radical ways to get rid of them.  However, I learned just how well-liked Issac Adi was at a recent GOP event where many top-level office holders attended to speak and celebrate the fall ahead of the upcoming election.  Usually, when these kinds of big GOP events start, current officeholders are announced for recognition, and when they called out Issac’s name, the whole crowd erupted into applause.  People knew Issac and were cheering him on for a position that may be one of the most demanding offices to penetrate with Republican representatives in the state, the Lakota school board.  Issac was doing well, and people see that he is one of the brightest hopes yet of properly managing Lakota’s school board that we’ve had in years. 

Issac Adi with Jim Jordan

The GOP has endorsed candidates before, but mainly in the past, school boards were considered non-partisan as schools were supposed to be above and beyond politics.  Schools were always supposed to be for the children, and the school board members ideally would always put kids first and their family’s needs as priorities.  I know many administrative roles in public schools, and they aren’t blatant Marxists looking to overthrow America.  But the teacher’s unions are, and they run the schools, all public schools.  And by default, when one side tries to play nice, and the other side wants to play with every dirty trick in the book to win, guess who has the advantage?  I was at a recent school board meeting with Lakota’s board, and I listened with great pain at the excuses for Covid quarantines causing work stoppages and how intrusive the masks were.  The superintendent at Lakota isn’t a crazy radical. Still, he does try to make everyone happy, and there is no other way to make anybody happy because of the teacher’s union’s demands.  They want progressive causes like mask mandates implemented, and if they don’t get their way, they will make life miserable for everyone. 

A Grand GOP Event in Monroe, Ohio

I was thinking of what a positive person Issac is after watching him getting his picture taken with Jim Jordan of Ohio.  Jordan is an international celebrity because of some of the disputes he has been involved in over the years, and oddly as it might seem for a school board candidate, but Issac looked very much at home with Jim Jordan.  It was easy to see Issac in a dispute with the LEA union without things getting to the point where everyone left that evening angry at each other.  Jordan has a skill where he is a likable person even when he’s arguing with someone.  That is a skill missing on the Lakota school board since I started paying attention to it decades ago.  Issac has the presence of a superstar, and his likability personally rubs off on everyone.  Issac would be uniquely qualified to ease tensions instead of exacerbating them when dealing with some of these problematic school business issues.  It was apparent when Issac was around high-profile politicians that he had the same skills, which is something to get excited about.

A Very Large Crowd Cheering on Isaac and other Big Names

As ugly as politics can sometimes get, that event where Issac Adi and Jim Jordan were both at was a friendly reminder of what is possible in politics.  Regarding Lakota, the teacher’s union has made doing any business with the public school such a miserable experience.  But when you take a break from the arena and take some time to have a nice meal together and enjoy a sunset, the GOP in Butler County is such a tremendous asset to the community.  Most of Butler County, where Lakota schools are located, is populated with Republicans.  The goal of the teacher’s union is to take all they can for their members and to turn more children of Republicans into Democrats, which is why they want to mask mandates, same-sex bathrooms, and start sex education in the 3rd grade.  Then they want infinite amounts of money spent on their unionized employees and impose more tax on properties to pay for it.  Only the best of any person could have the will to deal with them.  Yet it is because of events like the GOP gathering we had recently in Monroe, Ohio, that puts in place so many good officeholders, and it’s exciting to see that Issac Adi will be one of them. 

When I talk about politicians, I often talk about their shelf life, the amount of time it takes the system to grind people down from hopeful managers into spit out garbage.  Then, term limits should remove them from office, but all too often, we will get another two decades out of officeholders that stay in those positions.  But in Butler County, we’ve managed to get many good officeholders through a lot of community engagement. I’ve watched them come into the office and do great work for a long time while still having shelf life left in their lives.  Issac has quickly found a home among the GOP and has embraced it so authentically that it will only continue the great reputation that the Butler County GOP already has for a track record.  People like Jim Jordan don’t and can’t come to every event they are invited to.  Neither can Frank LaRose.  But that they come to Butler County often says so much about how important the region is on the stage of national politics.  People like Issac Adi keep that prospect fresh on everyone’s minds as the GOP grows into the future. 

Best of all, Issac is not a phony, and there isn’t any temptation of him becoming one.  That is another trait of Butler County office holders that is a recent trend.  I wouldn’t have been able to say the same thing ten years ago, but I can say it today.  I can’t think of many politicians in Butler County who are phonies, and I would attribute that top to bottom to the structure of the Republican Party.  From the donors to the ground walkers.  When everyone gets together as we did on that night Issac Adi and Jim Jordan took a picture together, the world is easy to see that it’s worth fighting for.  And when so many good people get together in one place, the problems are much easier to see in all their purity.  Once the conflict with a teacher’s union starts making things murky, at least we can know that people like Issac won’t be pushed off by themselves to be ridiculed by the union activists.  He has a support system that is a relatively new thing and combined with his great personality; he will help make that Lakota school board something special instead of the monstrosity it is today.  But it all starts with a rising new star, and for all our benefit, Issac Adi is there, shooting across the sky, and I look forward to what the future that comes from him shows to the world.

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.

The LEA Union at Lakota Goes Too Far: Trying to screen school board candidates to protect their stranglehold on the district

Labor Unions think they are Management, they aren’t

It’s safe to say it now; it’s no longer a conspiracy theory, as it used to be when I first started talking about it years ago.  Teacher unions formed under the John Dewey public education system have been communist recruitment centers meant to re-shape the minds of our children into diabolical menaces against American values, life, liberty, and capitalism.  In my school district of Lakota, the LEA labor union has been a treacherous disaster for decades, imposing on the community, which tends to be conservative, a lot of liberal ideology that people aren’t comfortable with.  Many of the kids who have been through the Lakota school system and are now adults can easily see the damage.  Parents tell me all the time the sad stories of their precious little kids who were so sweet and wonderful, who turned into delectable losers through their high school and college years.   By the time the kids get into their 20s and 30s, they end up as unrecognizable communists of anti-American sentiment.  And where did it all start?  Well, in Lakota, there is a group of mad moms led by Sandy Wheatley, an old name to me but likely new to unsuspecting parents new to the school district.  She used to lead the local teacher’s union at Lakota and still has been one of the “sweat bees” always aggravating Lakota school business in the ways you can see in this article.  All the trouble starts with people like her.  In truth, all labor unions were born out of the push for communism during the mid-1800s when Marx published his destructive concepts that have stifled the world in many ways we see today.  But it’s one thing to look at it happening and have feelings about it, but quite another for it to happen in our backyards and not be expected to do anything about it.  I’ve never felt compelled not to do something about it.  I think we should fight these losers everywhere they show themselves because now many can see what I’ve been saying for years.  Teacher unions have not just been bad for our public education system, wasting millions of our taxpayer dollars over the years as an actual imposition. They are additionally harmful to our flag and country and must once and for all be considered domestic terrorists and threats to our children’s very lives.  Because they are.

Recently I have told many stories about a group of school board challengers endorsed by the Republican Party of Butler County, Ohio, running this year to replace three seats on the Lakota school board.  They are great candidates functioning on their own for good reasons which they have determined for themselves.  But I’ve been around for a while and understand the impediments that get in the way of good people intending to do a good job where good jobs are needed, and old labor union presidents like Sandy Wheatley don’t want to see a good job done in public schools.  They function from a different idea of what “good” is.  You and I, dear reader, might call “good” a well-balanced kid who can read, write, think, and grow up to get married, have good kids, a job, run a good household, and come over to a happy family gathering on Christmas for some quality exchanges.  For the communist labor union types, “good” is to turn the kids into servants of the state, do drugs, experiment sexually, collect unemployment, and vote Democrat.  And when it comes time for Christmas dinner, to send those children into those nice American homes filled with nice American families and to torpedo them all from the inside out with disappointment, anxiety, and malice.  Yet many people have always thought that my statements about the teacher’s union were overstated and purely political.  Because I have been more involved in these school board candidates this time around, I have seen how the labor union at Lakota behaves from a different point of view, and that view has been ugly.

One of these school board challengers asked me the other day about the questionnaire shown in this article, along with correspondence showing some Facebook postings from old Sandy Wheatley herself disparaging members of the current school board and the challengers in ways meant to impact the vote the way labor unions all over America intend.  These documents show the intent of the LEA teacher’s union at Lakota in a very honest way that voters should know about.  I found the questionnaire sent to this particular school board challenger to be reprehensible.  As I explained to them, they want to do a nice job for the district, and all this labor union radicalism can be a bit scary, that as a member of the school board, they are the management.  The labor does not get to interview the management. The other way around is the first problem with managing all public schools, especially at Lakota.  These labor union types felt it was appropriate to gather information on incoming school board members at Lakota.  Just read the questions for yourself.  What is being proposed by this questionnaire is that the labor union wants to know how progressive the candidates are.  Will they support the current progressive political agenda such as gay rights in the schools or uncontrollable spending with perpetual tax increases on private property through school levies.  How the candidates’ answer will determine the level of activism the union will perform against those candidates.  The LEA wants people like what they have molded on the current school board, lapdogs of union appeasement from Julie Shaffer, Kelly Casper, Michael Pearl, and the Brad Lovell replacement, Douglas Horton.  As you can see from Sandy’s direct comments on Facebook, they hate Lynda O’Conner because Lynda has tried to do the job a school board is always supposed to do, represent the community who elected her into place.  While the rest want to get along with the communist teacher’s union so bad things won’t be said about them.

People never wanted to face the facts of the origin of the labor movement, especially when it came to their kids.  Parents wanted to like their teachers; many of them started with good intentions.  Everyone always does, including Sandy Wheatley and the union thugs sucking the life out of the Lakota school system.  Even in the human body, viruses want to live.  Cancer wants to live by being a parasite of the host.  Everyone from their perspective wants to live.  But good is determined by logic, and that is why we elect school board members to insert reason into the management of children in a school and the millions of dollars it takes to teach them with free education.  But the quality of that education has always been under attack by teacher unions who want far more than just a job in a school district.  They want to act as parasites to our children and the property we own and maintain to fund their menace.  Attacking private property is one of the communist goals as they were adopted directly from Karl Marx and John Dewey was quite aware of it from the beginning.  It was a mountain of corruption from the start, and it shows in the products of public education, most of us, our children, and the state of our nation now.  And based on these documents shown here, you can see what is going on in your local teacher’s union.  These aren’t unique to Lakota.  But they do require action from voters who have a mind to fix the situation.  In Lakota, during 2021, voters will finally have a chance to do something about all this nonsense.  But really, this is a nationwide problem, and it needs to be addressed in America once and for all.  Otherwise, we won’t have a country, making all teacher union members very, very happy.
