Yes, I love “My Darlings”: The Rise of Kristi Ertel and the benefits of being a “Crazy Cowboy”

Suppose you listen carefully to the pro-Matt Miller faction of Lakota schools. In that case, you’ll hear from their diatribes of insanity a proclamation of no accountability, which is the cornerstone of liberalism and the most destructive element of any public school. After all, that is at the heart of the case with the former Lakota Superintendent who threw the Lakota school board under the bus, who had been defending him as he resigned from the public school under tremendous pressure as of this writing, the 31st of January 2023. Even with all that has been revealed about his bizarre personal lifestyle, he was recently at the Kona Grill at Liberty Center parading around his new girlfriend even as he was in charge of her compensation and benefits, daring school board members who were there to say something about it. On his way out the door, he was clearly setting up a lawsuit to extract more money from the district in the hope of a settlement since the school board always tends to settle cases rather than fight them in court. It would be smart in this case for them to fight this one because there is a lot that would be in their favor; as one of my good friends in all of this effort said in a few good interviews on radio and podcasts recently, Kristi Ertel, attached here for your convenience. For instance, the housekeeper story would be something that would not hold up well in an actual courtroom. Kristi was also one of the speakers at a very contentious school board meeting that took place on 1.23.23, just a week before. At that meeting, things were getting out of control as the pro-union, pro-Matt Miller faction came ready to openly harass the community for passing any kind of judgment on their lives or that of their leader, the outgoing superintendent.

But to drive home the point, I saw lots of feedback in the aftermath from what critics call “my darlings” as the pro-Matt Miller faction revealed their innermost thoughts for analysis. A few of those “darlings,” who don’t mind the title in the least, were Justin and Vanessa Wells, who were drug into this story from the start and are the community members Kristi Ertel mentioned during her interviews, especially on 55 KRC with Brian Thomas. I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I’ve seen every bit of the ugly from the pro-union, pro-big government schools for several decades. But under pressure, they are revealing their weaknesses more blatantly than ever before, which is the feature of a Facebook posting by one of them who showed a lot regarding their mentality of panic at a government education world that is falling apart in front of their faces, an expectation of no accountability for any administrators and staff, and ultimately what they hope kids learn which masks all the bad decisions they’ve made in their own lives. It’s quite a fascinating thing to witness. Vanessa has been the flytrap that has been the soundboard for much of the worst because the assumption has been that if not for Justin and Vanessa, that Matt Miller would still be the superintendent of Lakota schools. There would be no Darbi on the school board, there would be no Tea Party, and they would still have their shield in the superintendent position, hiding so much that is wrong behavior-wise among the employee staff; that is obviously only the tip of the iceberg. 

I can understand why the writer of the Facebook post was so upset with Justin and why he referred to me as a “crazy cowboy.” He also indicated that I was “little Richie,” and he said similar things about Justin. In private meetings, the Facebook guy would find out that we’re not so little, but it’s not what he said that reflects reality, but the mind of the liberal in general that is so interesting. Sure, these radicals are upset that there is a vast network of supporters at Lakota schools that runs all up and down the hierarchy of society, and they are supporting Darbi Boddy as there have been organized efforts to remove her from the school board. They are not used to anybody fighting back against them and are upset about it. And how they express that frustration is like some drunken loser at a football game who thinks they could play better as an armchair quarterback as they stuff beer and hot dogs down their throats trying to shape reality to their limited sentiment. The attempt to paint their enemies as “little” is to help them build up the courage to say anything at all because the position they are defending is indefensible. And to fit it into their minds, they must diminish the concept of opposition into something they believe they can manage until reality confirms otherwise. So long as it’s just a Facebook posting, they can easily believe they have a fighting chance. But also with such rantings is fear of the opposition’s significance. Yes, I have a lot of “darlings” in the Butler County community, especially on Lakota issues. And I am proud of them all. I’ve been laying out the game plan for beating these antagonizers in public schools for years, and it has really taken until recently for people to start listening and fighting back.   And now that people have seen what Darbi Boddy is doing on the school board, they are seeing how to do the right things as a school board member. If people like these Matt Miller supporters are upset, that’s great because it means that the real need in public schools is getting addressed. 

As Kristi Ertel indicated in her great interviews, the reason for all this is to protect kids. I think of these government schools as dangerous and expensive. But they produce way too many employees within their system like Matt Miller, and it is under pressure like we have seen over the release of his divorce records that reveal just how bad it is. And the anger at “my darlings” tells us so much about what those real dangers are. The position among the left-leaning supporters of public education, to begin with, is to fight for no accountability, no judgment, and no consequences for bad behavior. What the supporters of Matt Miller are advocating for, and are frustrated with, is that the public, the Darbi Boddy supporters, the team behind the website Protect Lakota Kids.com, and even vast political support that has taken a stand in ways nobody is used to, have come together at the joint opportunity to protect kids from the dangers of adults who want no consequence lives, then expect to teach that to our children. Then there is the fear of expectation that their jobs may not be so secure after all and that personal choices might make them unemployable. Because if you really dig behind the façade of all the tough talk, you see a group of people who know they are in the extreme minority who puff themselves up like peacocks to look much more extensive than they really are, which are why they fantasize that their enemies are so much smaller than they are in real life, to fit their world view, who worry that everything they ever believed about employment and social safety nets might be wrong, and irrelevant. And to maintain that fantasy, Matt Miller had to resign, as all those followers will have to follow to maintain the same illusion. And they are mad that there are people out there judging them. But of course, they will because after all the smoke clears, a parent’s fundamental task is to provide children with the best opportunities for a decent future. And they won’t get that opportunity if what they learn in public schools, which is a reality we can’t ignore, to live life with no accountability, then we have destroyed those poor kids before they ever get a chance at life. And that would be the worst crime of all.

A German Nurse Walks Free After Refusing Covid Vaccinations: Using The Doctrine of Lesser Magistrates to regulate out of control governments

A Red Cross nurse who injected 8,600 elderly patients with saline solution instead of the experimental COVID jab has walked free from court with only six months probation. 39-year-old Antje T. had administered the saltwater solution “vaccines” at the Schortens jab center in Friesland, Germany, telling patients they were the Pfizer jab. She was found guilty of six counts of intentional assault by Oldenburg District Court, Lower Saxony state, on November 30. Police told the court that she was able to introduce the saline solution undetected because she was in charge of vaccine and syringe preparation during her shift at the vaccination center. Many people were upset that she didn’t go to jail and suffer more punishment than losing her nursing license, but in truth, the Germans couldn’t prosecute her for something that wasn’t a law; the government didn’t have a right to force an alliance with Pfizer to force medicine on people under the standards that were created with Covid because the imposition of public safety as a means to undermine personal rights had not been worked out in their legal system. Therefore, there wasn’t any real merit for the case to begin with. And in America, there is even less of a premise for such a case. This is a good story for a number of reasons, but it ultimately shows the power of the excellent book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates and how it can bring governments to their knees when they grab for power and abuse their authority such as was the clear case under Covid. Local officials were obliged to push back against the tyrannies of the state. Joe Biden never had the authority to mandate vaccines of any kind, which is just how those court cases turned out. And the best way to undermine such corruption is by following the basic ideas established in that great book.

I knew of many nurses and pharmacists during Covid who behaved much the way that German nurse did, and there is even less of a prosecutorial standard in America for them to be punished for their actions. I see what they were doing as patriotic, we had a power grab by the government from the Biden administration trying to flex some first-term muscle, and people ignored it, which they should have. There was no authority by the government to do so; I told everyone that at the time. It was a bluff by the government that had no enforceability or justification, and the Biden executive order needed to be ignored. For example, a president can set some parameters for vaccine passports, such as international travel. Corporations can have policies for flying on their equipment as well. It’s their planes, their rules. But saying that people wouldn’t be allowed to work if they didn’t take some government-mandated medicine was insane at best. And I was encouraged during Covid by how many rebels emerged using The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates to destroy the tyrannical grip governments had over industry. I knew quite a few people who were issuing vaccine cards to people who needed them for employment mandates, and I thought it was fine. I knew that none of this executive order action would hold up in court, so it was good to see people putting a check on that power from the outset, which occurred from September of 2021 to around January of 2022 when the court cases started falling apart under scrutiny. I was happy to be right about all of it, but it was pretty scary for people to realize that government had way overstepped its authority and that people might lose their jobs as a result. It took guts for people to take a stand and use their positions to help people get vaccine cards, even if those people didn’t want to get the vaccine.   Under those conditions, where the government is not acting in accordance with the Law of the land, the American Constitution, people have an obligation to ignore the mandates of an out-of-control government. 

The situation was so bad that I knew a few legislators, one in particular, who was immune from the mandates because they were law makers themselves, but they had a scheduled trip to the Virgin Islands and had to have a vax card to make the trip. But they were very much against the government-mandated vaccination. So I helped everyone talk to each other so they could get what they needed, but I still applied the concept of The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates. Rules created by an abusive government should be ignored and even defeated at the local level. Otherwise, the government will never stop imposing itself on the innocent. The method of using a crisis to impose under unconstitutional emergency laws had been debated for years; one of the worst scenarios was the Hurricane Katrina crisis in New Orleans years ago. Martial Law was imposed there, which had disastrous effects on the population. Thinking back on it, people would have been better off ignoring the authorities and functioning from a constitutional law foundation. Just because something is an emergency doesn’t mean you have to rearrange your entire legal system.

And even in Germany, which hardly has anything close to an American Bill of Rights, the courts couldn’t prosecute the young nurse and her convictions against the vaccination shots. Legally they had much more power there than in the United States. It wasn’t an apples-to-apples kind of analysis. But what the authorities couldn’t afford to have happen was that by prosecuting this nurse, they upset the population and gave birth to a thousand more. When the government sees that people are so willing to break their dumb rules, they are less motivated to issue them in the future, knowing that in the long run, they’ll simply overplay their hand, and people will stop listening to them. And for powerful governments, that is their greatest fear. A population that has no reverence for them and calls their bluff on exerting authority. If people fear compliance more than government power, governments are exposed as worthless in their endeavors if they simply lose the public, which is always a risk. I am personally very happy that so many people refused in the United States to take the vaccine. The government needed to make a better case for its position than it did, which was even worse than many feared. And at no point in the future can government believe that it has that kind of power over people. The World Economic Forum people also, who fancy themselves as having control over governments through their campaign contributions, have to learn the hard lesson as well, that they cannot control the Law through emergency bioweapons.   Seeing people refuse to play the game, by whatever means they had to, was a good warning to those tyrannical forces. The centralized government will not have the power they fantasize about over mass populations because The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates promises that people will rebel against abusive laws, even if power at the top is captured through election fraud or some other maniacal method. Obviously, the only laws that are good and can work are those regulated by voters through a representative government. And through that method, the Lesser Magistrates always keep the Upper Magistrates from gaining too much power and making themselves the tyrannies of our day. And in that regard, the best thing to keep society honest is the willingness to say no when given an unjust order and to force the government to think seriously about their demands before they say a word.

The New Kind of War: Tanks, planes, and troops are the bows and arrows of yesterday. Bioweapons are the new nuclear war. And Covid was their test shot.

Just a little friendly advice for President Trump and his campaign staff, he has to stop talking about his role in the vaccine roll-out for Covid. The Operation Warp Speed stuff is a long-dead issue, and knowing what we do now about the vaccine, and the Pfizer CEO himself, and his crazy employees revealed by Project Veritas, a new kind of war has been shown to us, and Trump needs to distance himself from it. I know he doesn’t want to admit that he got snickered. Still, Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci, specifically, along with many others, took advantage of a president looking in an election year to do all the right things regarding a mass pandemic outbreak, a “plandemic” as Gates had been planning one for years. Power goes to those who cry wolf. And those two partners in crime walked into the White House and pulled a fast one over on President Trump by telling him millions of people would die if he didn’t shut down the American economy to deal with it and let the white-coat physicians run the country. I knew it at the time that it was a trick. Even Rush Limbaugh went along with it at that moment, but I was the only one with a mass media voice saying anything about Covid being a trick and a Pearl Harbor-like attack on the world by a new kind of enemy. Knowing something about Bill Gates’s radicalism with climate change, it was easy for me to see. But then again, I wasn’t in the White House. Trump had a lot of people advising him. I’m sure he had his doubts. But he had to do what he thought best, and at that time, Dr. Fauci was a very respected medical professional that should know what he was talking about. So Trump listened and did everything he could to stop Covid. But the medical people knew what they wanted to do: to use the virus to help the World Economic Forum invoke a Great Reset on the world’s economy. And the rest is now history. 

I’ve told everyone who cares to listen that we are no longer in a troop-related war, where military occupation wins wars. I was playing Risk, the board game, with my family the other day, and I had to laugh at how naive the world had been. We accept that military endeavors are like we have always known them; an aggressor with what they think is military might, may invade a country and overtake it. If they win, they control the country. But in this modern age, this 21st Century, that is not how you win wars. I would point back to 1955 when Eisenhower was pushed into a kind of corporate yielding to new global forces, not one where countries ruled the world, but corporations, right there on Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. The Military Industrial Complex has essentially ruled the world since then, as the evidence of the behavior of the FBI, CIA, and many others clearly indicates. They aren’t working for the American voters; that’s clear. They rig elections and kill off political rivals, such as JFK and Nixon, with a clear set-up job in Watergate. And they had perfected their methods by the time Trump was in the White House to a new level of smear campaign meant to tamper with elections and keep their kind of people in power to sustain their own interests. Not the ones that people pick at the voting booth. We have been trained to see the military as the force that decides the fates of nations. But that has been wrong for many years, really since that day in 1955. All the wars since have only been projections of power while the real powers worked in the background. I wouldn’t call it a conspiracy theory as much as a technical evolution of warfare that moved from troops, tanks, and aircraft to bioweapons and information propaganda, which is what we see now. 

Covid was a military attack involving a corporate alliance with world governments to impose its will against people everywhere. I think the proof is abundant that human beings made Covid in a Chinese lab. And that Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates knew all that from the beginning. And while they were telling President Trump that millions of people were going to die if we didn’t wear masks and socially distance hiding in our homes like fools while we waited desperately for a vaccine to reopen the economy again during an election year, it’s almost too crazy to believe any of it. And many didn’t at first.   Some are even reluctant now because they want to believe that our medical professionals were well-intended and had our best interests in mind. They don’t want to consider them a new kind of military tyranny. Yet, that is precisely what they have been and intend to be. Many people took the shot, believing what the government was telling them, and now they have to live with the aftereffects. People are dying all over the place, and many of them are young people who suddenly have blood flow problems, strokes, and heart attacks. Yet the government continues pushing vaccines to advocate the Pfizer plan and the Moderna influence over world governments to impose a military strategy to take over the world with global surveillance and white coat authority. 

When Project Veritas caught Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planner, saying, “one of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create – preemptively develop new vaccines, right” it was revealed what the game plan had always been. And it is not just profit through an alliance with Big Pharma and the government. The plan was to control the entire human race from the undefined influence of the World Economic Forum, which is clearly looking to move sovereign power away from nation-states and pull them all in under a manufactured crisis into the United Nations, which the corporations in partnership controlled. Once caught, Walker went into a kind of exorcism mode and freaked out on camera, showing what kind of people are really running Pfizer. And it is for this we are supposed to sacrifice ourselves to, as many millions are dying because of their medicine, proving far more dangerous than the virus itself. I’m not going to spike the football in everyone’s face, but I would implore people on the Trump team to listen while he makes his next move to become President once again. I don’t blame him for being scammed by Fauci, Gates, and the gang. But he must repair the damage before another presidential run because every time he reminds people that he pushed a vaccine solution for reopening the economy, he is admitting to the worst “checkmate” in the history of the world, a world conquest for the first time that didn’t involve a single shot. And once the United States shut down the economy under Bill Gates’ recommendations, the rest of the world fell as well. And there are a lot of people who will not vote for Trump because of his role in it. They would prefer a non-vaxxer to run for President instead. So, Trump will have to adjust his support for the vaccine push and walk it back because it was never about healing people. It was always a military endeavor, which is evident now in hindsight as the evidence emerges. And we must treat it that way, or we will see it again and again. Remember, this is the new warfare in the world. Tanks, planes, and troops are the bows and arrows of yesterday. Bioweapons are the new nuclear war. And Covid was their test shot. And so far, it has benefited those attackers by confirming their hopes and dreams. The world is full of suckers, and they plan to exploit that to their benefit by using literal fear of death to unite the world under their rule through a corporate alliance. And that is a fact, not speculation.

How Democrats Plan to Win in 2024: A cure for cancer that has been tucked away in their back pocket for decades

For over a decade, I have been saying that there are cures for most cancers. It wasn’t surprising to me that Israel recently announced their successful results with mice and that most cancers are treatable with some of this groundbreaking technology. The skepticism leveled at my claims in the past was that nobody believed that government would purposely kill people by denying them essential medicine. But I think all that was put to rest when we discovered that governments worldwide would do precisely that. We watched them overplay their hands with Covid and the denial that Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine could treat the man-made virus unleashed from a Chinese lab. The bottom line is that cancer is big business for the government partnership with big pharma, and we saw just how deep that relationship ran regarding the Covid vaccines. Now with a bit of history behind us, the Covid vaccine looks to be far more dangerous and much more deadly than the virus ever was. Yet watching the government on Covid has taught us much about how evil it can be. Nothing was more evident than putting Covid patients in nursery homes next to other elderly people knowing that the virus would spread and kill many more with weakened immune systems. I would call it murder. But to the kindest minds, we call it patient mismanagement. Either way, the tactical results were obvious. Would government kill people to maintain control over the population? Absolutely, yes! In fact, they would do anything to gain power and keep power. 

That’s why I found it odd that during the campaign, Joe Biden announced that he would find a cure for cancer if he won the presidency. And he has said similar things over the last few years. Now, when I heard that, I knew that there were already cures for cancer that was well-known for many years. And  NMN supplements can actually reverse the aging process. The fountain of youth wasn’t some obscure science fiction any longer. The technology was within reach and known to many. But at present, we are still dealing with a global order that wants to depopulate the earth, to make mankind dumber so they can’t catch on to the schemes of the religious fanatics involved in climate change. Even if Joe Biden wanted to, he wouldn’t be able to unleash a cure for cancer because there is just too much money in people dying to give it up, and the government is a direct benefactor of those deaths. Because it keeps them in power. So how would Joe Biden ever bring about the cure for cancer if big pharma was against it? Well, this is where judging people based on what they do, not what they say, comes in handy. The cure for cancer looks to have been Joe Biden’s secret strategy for a 2024 run all along, and he has been making deals to protect his vision since he was put in office by the Chinese through election fraud. As an elderly person, he directly benefits from this technology and would like to see it in the marketplace. 

Well, Biden’s strange yielding to big pharma when it came to Covid and playing the alliance with the government to the extent that he did, with the executive order regarding the Covid vaccines, is a dead giveaway to a market replacement for the next great crises, one that gets rid of one concern and replaces it with another. If mandatory vaccines could trade off cancer treatment as a guaranteed revenue stream for big pharma, that would allow for releasing that campaign promise in his fourth year, just before the next run. When you watch the Biden people drift through one flop after another, the high vaccine deaths, the terrible economy, the horrendous foreign relations mishaps, the controversy of the classified documents, the Hunter Biden laptop, and the constant talk about his old age, what topic would there be to make everyone forget about all that? A cure for cancer. Few topics would erase everyone’s mind more than this topic because just about everyone knows someone with cancer or has lost people to it. Its one of those deadly diseases that most lingers in the mind of just about everyone, and if Joe Biden’s presidency revealed a cure to it, such as the recent news from the Department of Energy for net energy production that has been talked about as a big technical breakthrough, its easy to see how the political machine is setting up this story. Biden gets re-elected, big pharma trades off cancer treatment for government-sponsored vaccines, and the globalists get to peel away some populations with the side effects of the vaccine surveillance. Those are my thoughts after watching a week of Davos coverage from the World Economic Forum. Public relations were not good this year; many angry people were reporting on their activities, which made me think that they are going to retreat underground again, as they have since essentially since the creation of the United Nations after World War II. They need a win, too, a new technology breakthrough that shows the value of a government/corporate alliance. Cancer cures are just the thing all these radicals have been looking for to save them in 2024. 

Most of that is conjecture based on my thoughts on the matter, of course. But the looming question that has to be answered to all of that is whether the government deliberately allows people to die of cancer while waiting for the right political window to unleash the cure. Well, the answer is yes! They have been caught doing it; they did it with the creation of Covid and the denial of medicine to truly stop the spread with phony methods designed by the World Health Organization to inspire a Great Reset with the China model in charge of the new global economy. Meanwhile, the billionaires stayed away from Davos this year because they have been snuffed out. They have retreated to the background, but they genuinely want Biden or some other puppet to stay in the White House. And Biden knows his role. So to throw society a bone to retain power and push back the pressure of populism is a strategy that they would absolutely be interested in. And this is a trait they have already shown they are willing to do, to kill people off, to retain their own power. Based on everyone’s behavior, the cancer release story makes the most sense about their pending strategies of Democrats, progressives, and global communists. They need a win, and cancer cures are in their back pocket. And many might call all this a conspiracy theory if we already didn’t know about the cures for cancer that have already been so well known. Yet, our medical industry has sat on those findings for decades; when Biden made such declarative statements about the cure for cancer, it was because he already knew. He’s not that smart otherwise. But they are waiting to release it because they think it’s the only way they can beat Trump without election fraud. It is to give people a solution to something that everyone in the world is concerned with. And by releasing it next year, ahead of the 2024 campaign, they hope to buy votes with a chance to live, even though the government itself is the most dangerous organization on planet earth. But people may well forget about all that if only they wouldn’t have to worry about catching cancer.

After A Year of Darbi Boddy as Lakota School Board Member, Was it Worth It: Lawyers have had too much power and wasted entirely too much money

It’s been about a year now since Darbi Boddy was sworn in as the new Lakota school board member, and we have to ask, was it worth it? Was it worth all the trouble, the news coverage, the hard feelings, lawsuits, threats, scandal, petitions, and civil war with the rest of the board?   Well, of course, it was worth it. Darbi Boddy has turned out to be precisely what was needed, and because of her, we are seeing many good things that would have never happened any other way. When Lynda O’Conner and I set out to have a conservative majority on the school board of Lakota schools, Darbi Boddy was precisely what I had in mind. Lynda obviously had other ideas, and we ultimately disagreed with the final result. In management, my philosophy is obvious and well-known; I like conflict because it gets people to the root cause of a problem. And many people in Lakota, not as conservative as I am, are sick of the government school system always taking too much money from the community and wasting vast sums of money only to teach children progressive politics that is detrimental to the human race. At the start of the year, we were all worried about Critical Race Theory and same-sex bathrooms at Lakota, and with my kind of management philosophy, Darbi Boddy was just the kind of firecracker that needed to be thrown into the hornet’s nest to flush out all the bad guys who were causing so much of the trouble. Darbi was worth the investment of the Republican Party, and the fundraising, and all the negative media coverage. Because she did what all good managers do, she used the conflict to root out the trouble and force everyone to live up to a performance standard, and that requirement has crushed the weak elements of the public education façade that were too expensive and brought liberalism into a very conservative community.

We will hear something of a purge from Lakota; many resignations will be notable, which will be excellent. In a liberal world, which is typical in government, they classify quality as in hiring more useless people to perform a task. So a value to them is in paying too many employees too much money to perform a needed task. And leading up to the last school board election, Lakota as a school system was pushing for another school levy, which had many people extremely upset. As expensive as Lakota schools are presently to the taxpayers, and for what they are teaching, which is all the crazy progressive garbage that we hear about negatively on the nightly news, the idea that Lakota would try to obtain a tax increase to pay for more wasteful employees was simply a horrendous enterprise. In truth, what too many wasteful employees provide any organization is inefficiency and corruption. We have seen plenty of that at Lakota, which was hiding behind a compliant school board that lawyers ran. One thing I learned during all this was how much lawyers have their hands in everyone’s pockets, and they are turning out to be a significant problem not just locally but nationally and internationally in politics as well. They operate without a political party to shape political activity in devastating ways and suck off way too much taxpayer money as a result. Looking at some of the invoices from legal work over just the last couple of months at Lakota shows all that needs to be known on this topic. The amount of corruption that lawyers were covering up and diffusing from the public was enormous and expensive. So when we were asking questions about where all the money was going, it wasn’t just on high-priced administrators advocating for progressive politics at taxpayer expense; it was in a more devastating way going to lawyers who have the sole purpose of covering up scandals and employee misconduct and preventing the public from having an opinion on that conduct. The result has been a loss of free speech, which is a significant violation of the constitutional parameters between the public and their employees of elected representatives, and the financial burden, as a result, was enormous. 

It’s a shame that the other school board members on the Republican majority weren’t as good as Darbi. The other two turned out to be RINOs, John Boehner-type RINOs. The Republican Party isn’t as unified as it was when we had that last election, so it’s not clear how endorsements for the next election will happen. Based on the previous election’s results, it might not be needed. There is a power struggle in the Butler County Republican Party that was unified a year ago, which goes back to my management method of using conflict to identify weak spots. We have indeed found weak Republicans behind all the smiling faces of campaign mode. I was very proud of Isaac Adi when I took a picture of him with Jim Jordan at a GOP event not that long ago. I still think Isaac is a good person, even though he has worked against Darbi Boddy since the moment she was sworn in. A lot of people have learned over the last year just how conservative, or not, they actually were, and that will make this next election an interesting one now that the cards are on the table. It will be a different kind of election, and there will be a chance to get two more Darbi Boddy types on the school board, which will be a great opportunity. 

Yet to the question, was it all worth it? Well, the answer is yes because the obvious thing that everyone is fighting for is a good education for kids, and taxpayers throw money into a pot to accomplish that task. And many parasites obviously want to suck up that money to support their often lazy and maniacal worldview. Just because Lakota will be peeling away a lot of employees doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing. The best thing is to do more with less, let the trouble leave, and not replace them with more expensive employees. Just because Democrats had an insurrection in the Ohio House to essentially protect their extensive government views regarding the Backpack Bill, education is changing, and only good management will prepare Lakota for what is happening. Eventually, the money will go to the child, not the zip code. Lakota will have to be competitive and not just sit around with their mouth open and have lawyers shovel in vast sums of money and keep the public from interrupting the process. So far, after years on the school board, only Darbi Boddy has been a good school board member who has truly given the public what they have been needing, proper representation under a great deal of duress. Many people in Darbi’s position would have fallen apart, but she has been challenging and lived up to all the rigors I knew she would have to face going in. It has been bloody, ugly, and treacherous. But she is doing a great job and is poised to have another great year. Meanwhile, those most unstable under the pressure of performance are jumping ship, and for the taxpayers paying for all this mess, that’s a wonderful thing that we need a lot more of. 

As we reflect on this past year and plan for the upcoming one, remember in April of 2022, Matt Miller and the school board chose to run the newly elected Darbi Boddy off the school board, just as they had previously with Todd Parnell the year before. There was a radical push by activists encouraged by superintendent Matt Miller to remove by force Darbi from the board. There were media hit pieces orchestrated by many of these same people who went way out of their way to publically embarrass Darbi; they were camped outside her home with the media cameras focused on her, and her child as Matt Miller sent a trespassing order to her for a school she was supposed to be managing. The radical unfairness started with Matt Miller and the current school board. But Darbi held tough and stayed sincere through all the pressure. She showed what could be possible if one good school board member asked the hard questions and challenged the management of millions and millions of hard-earned taxpayer dollars. The radical leftist elements openly harassed supporters of Darbi Boddy and threatened them with lawsuits and other forms of intimidation, attempting to publicly shame them into hiding. But people stood up for themselves, and good things did happen as a result. Now, just think about how good the school board could be if Darbi had some support. And for those who are upset about all this, take some notes. Don’t play the game unless you plan to lose. Everything started with a vote and people picking their representation, then politics stepped in to try and erase that vote. The same methods can and will be applied to any office holder, no matter where or what they do, or how long they have been doing it. Remember that the voters are in charge of their political representation, which a government school certainly is. Politicians don’t decide fates, voters do.

The Psychological Warfare About a Fake Moon Landing: Neil Armstrong’s search for the ancient library in Cueva de los Tayos

In an information age, it should be expected that psychological warfare would be the primary strategy for all hostile agents worldwide. And social media, of course, will be a vehicle for it, as are all forms of mass media. And not all the hostile characters are governments. Governments are undoubtedly hostile, but technology has provided an even playing field for even the most maniacal character who knows how to use psychological warfare on a gullible public for nefarious objectives. And this strategy has been in place since the beginning of mass media, for the entirety of the last century, and has been on overdrive so far in the 21st. It’s not hard to understand why so many people believe so many things, even ridiculous things, such as the conspiracy theory that the moon landing was a fake. I would think of that conspiracy theory as an example of psychological warfare because the hostile agents who started it were not happy with what was learned with the actual moon landing by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as when they landed on the surface, cut off communications with NASA which amateur radio operators picked up, for around 2 minutes where Armstrong revealed that there were other ships on the crater of the moon and that other lifeforms were there watching them. That, too, is considered a conspiracy theory, so what are we to make of any of it? Who do we believe? Can we trust anybody anymore? Well, the ultimate goal of psychological warfare is to erode that trust so that there is nothing but desperation among people and a hunger to believe what they deem safest. And the world’s governments position themselves as that “safety” option, and from that, they plan to gain much power. 

It was always odd to me that we never returned to the moon after those six Apollo missions. The rumor was that NASA was told by the lifeforms watching the moon landing to pick up a few rocks, fly around and take some pictures. But otherwise, stay away. And NASA and the American government did just that for the next 40 years. I sort of watched all this strange behavior by our government with knowing skepticism because I read everything and, as I say all the time, don’t judge people by what they say because they will lie. Judge them by what they do. I was very happy with President Trump’s statements during his inauguration speech, where he said, “we stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries, and technologies of tomorrow.” Who in their right mind wouldn’t like that? Well, governments who want to be in control didn’t like that, and by returning to space, it was going to reopen all the secrets of the Apollo missions, such as why we never dared go back to the moon or other planets for that matter. We had been waved off by something. Well, I make no apologies about it; I think the human race was filled with interactions with beings from all over the galaxy. I think there is highly compelling evidence that migrants from the planet Sirius gave ancient cultures a jump start and that Indian mounds all over the world play a part in helping space travelers know where and when they are in time while traveling around large distances that don’t behave consistently with time. I don’t think everything from Ancient Aliens the television show is correct, but I think they are knocking on the right door. But unlike those speculations, I don’t think those interactions ever went away, but that they still occur to this day, and governments and occultists are still working to have relationships with many species of living beings from all over the place.

When Neil Armstrong returned from his trip to the moon, he was never quite the same. He lived near me, and my wife and I looked to buy some property near his farmhouse outside Lebanon, Ohio. And people would run into him around town, and he would tell them things. He worked as a professor at the University of Cincinnati and eventually moved to Indian Hill. But I watched him for a long time and was always curious about him. As a kid, I was very moved by the museum dedicated to him in Wapakoneta, just up the road along I-75, a few hours or so. So I found his trip seven years after he walked on the moon to Ecuador looking for the reported ancient library there, supposedly built by giants and hosting 40-pound books made of gold in a secret library left behind by the visitors from other planets, compelling. The cave where this library was rumored to be located was Cueva de los Tayos near the Santiago River, and it was Armstrong who put together a small expedition there to see what he could find. As it turned out, they saw some strange things and mapped the cave but didn’t find the library. Some artifacts indicated there was certainly more to the story, but the fact that a very logical and respected figure such as Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, was interested in such a thing, added to his behavior for the rest of his life, indicates that he was clearly rattled by what he saw on the moon and was looking for answers, behind the veil of what governments and power-hungry despots conceal behind what we perceive as reality. Based on Armstrong’s behavior and conversations he had with locals, off the record, I believe what a seasoned test pilot and astronaut says more than a corrupt government with all kinds of illicit intentions and those powers do use psychological warfare to hold power over people. If people learned the truth about things, governments wouldn’t have the power they do. And even though Armstrong knew he was more afraid of the powers of our governments and the promises he had to make to them to get the opportunity to go to the moon, he spent the rest of his life essentially thirsty for the truth. 

The psychological warfare that was employed in this case was that the truth may have been that characters from some other planet were on the moon watching us land in our primitive little capsule and that the confidence we had in going there, to begin with, was because of our relationship with those same characters. People assume that contact with a civilization from anywhere but earth would lead to hostilities, but I would argue against that theory. Likely, they have been with us from the beginning and have been the gods of our myths from the beginning of time. And they fight among each other, are not unified in their endeavors, and we have just as much leverage over them as they do us, philosophically. They may have more and better technology than we do, but that doesn’t mean they are more innovative. I tend to think, based on their behavior, that they need us as much as we need them, and we have a lot of power-hungry corrupt people, just as are reported in the Bible, and every ancient book, who want to put themselves between them, and mass society. And to play that psychological warfare with the public, they started the conspiracy theory that Stanley Kubrick, the director of 2001: A Space Odyssey, faked the moon landing so that we could show the Russians that we beat them to the moon, when in fact we never left the ground. And in that way, they could hope to keep anybody from knowing the real truth, the thing that haunted Neil Armstrong for the rest of his life, that there is a lot more to the world than just what we are told in the news and from our governments. We have caught our governments lying to us about election fraud, the conditions of wars around the world, and of course, the conditions of Covid and what it did to all of us. And knowing all that, you can bet they would lie to us about much “bigger” things. Yet we can know that we landed on the moon because we have telescopes, and we know where we landed and what we left behind. Because the evidence is right there for all to see, we just need to look at it.

What’s Happening in Brazil: A global crime syndicate using governments as a mask is running everything through election fraud for global socialism, which they want to control

Don’t you ever wonder why we don’t talk about the mob-like we used to? Mobsters have always been attached to leftist tactics and labor unions and have been married to each other since the beginning of modern politics. They are all about group pressure and intimidation; over time, they have moved into government positions instead of trying to survive between the government and the people. Rather than allow themselves to be squeezed out of existence, they have simply moved into government, and that is essentially the story of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who was just inserted into the presidency of Brazil by a global mob that can be traced back to the members of the World Economic Forum, who are currently meeting in Davos. It hasn’t been covered much in the United States, but the protests in Brazil after the most recent election where President Jair Bolsonaro was thrown out through an obviously rigged election, and people know it. Brazil is 100% electronic voting machines; they do not have paper ballots to confirm the results, so we are seeing what happen in Brazil, essentially what happened in the United States with the Trump election and the Kari Lake election in Arizona, and likely many other places, where elections are wholly rigged for Democrats and their traditional alliance with organized crime that is no longer operating in the background, but have moved into official government positions to protect their political philosophy from the realities of capitalist economies. Not that long ago, Lula, the inserted president of Brazil now, and is a far-left radical activist who is intent on bringing Chinese-style communism to Brazil for the sake and benefit of China, he was in jail serving time for money laundering. He was released from jail to essentially run for the presidency because the organized crime elements of the world needed him in that role to perform their global takeover of the world’s economies to satisfy the goals of the Great Reset. 

Of course, they don’t have the same kind of protections in Brazil as we do in the United States, where we can still manage our courts to some extent, and have elections, somewhat. But more than anything, we have a Bill of Rights that makes it hard on the government mobsters. If Brazil had a population with more guns, they would have had a more challenging time inserting the criminal Lula into that presidential role. As a result, all they can do in Brazil is protest, which they are. In fact, people are protesting all over the world. It’s just that the media doesn’t cover it. At least in America, even though the same strategies were implemented against Trump, Lula in Brazil is what Biden is in America, a compromised criminal who is easy to control by the global organized crime elements which function out of the World Economic Forum these days, but have been members of Socialist International for many years, and use the United Nations as a front organization. To understand all this, just look at how Al Capone ran Chicago, and you will see the game plan of all socialists and communists worldwide. The biggest mistake is assuming that we must work with these people out of fairness when in reality, the game they are playing is organized crime in the traditional way that all mobs have operated. Instead of trying to fight authorities in court, the mob became the courts and the authorities. They no longer have to hide because they are the authorities. This was a strategy they began to implement at the end of the 20th century, and all the lessons that were learned from their endeavors. 

I often talk about my own experiences with the mob; I grew up with some very powerful forces in Cincinnati when they ran Newport, Kentucky, which was the prototype of Las Vegas. When things became too hot in Cincinnati, the mobsters moved to Vegas, and we have what we see today. But rather than go underground even more profoundly, they moved into official government positions and gained power through rigged elections. And because mobs are attached directly to Marxist labor movements, and they intend global control of all markets, as Karl Marx expressed in his books on the matter, they are embedded in all the efforts of globalism. And for proof of that, we see their mistakes in election fraud both in the United States with Joe Biden, then much more obviously in Brazil by removing Bolsonaro and inserting the criminal Lula to implement the will of China on that vast territory.   And while China plays along, the original strategy comes from the World Economic Forum. They cannot implement what they want to do in the world if free elections are driving free markets. So they have applied the old mobster tactics of managed elections through digital voting machines and mass influence over the media just as Al Capone had in Chicago; they now have all over the world controlled through corporate influence directly coming from the World Economic Forum, the people I call The Desecrators of Davos. At least in America, we can protest what we see behind the legal protections of the Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, in Brazil, they don’t have a Bill of Rights as we do in America. 

But the world is on fire as organized crime elements struggle to rule using the governments as a shield. That is certainly the case in Ukraine, which has been a Democrat money laundering operation for many years, and Mexico, where the drug cartels are in charge of the government there, clearly. China continues to push for global domination that they don’t even hide. But China is propped up by the World Economic Forum and the money managers who are shifting money to prop up their economy to fulfill the objectives that Socialists International has been talking about for years. The World Economic Forum and the United Nations have emerged as their best platforms and the politicians involved in a different time would have been mob bosses. Instead, now they have corvettes in their garages with classified documents sitting around for every whore, scumbag, and drug user to see at will. And the media wants money from the billionaires of Davos, so they help to hide it all. We’ve seen this in history before, in regional cities like Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. And those methods worked, so now they have moved to legitimize themselves with real government positions. And they secure those seats through election fraud by taking the vote away from people and giving that power to themselves. That is what is happening in Brazil right now and why there are massive protests. It’s the same playbook that they have been trying to sell to the American public. It’s what’s happening in Paris, Canada, England, Mexico, China, and their disputes in Hong Kong all over the world. Organized crime has aligned itself with the government, and we are seeing the results now. And election fraud is how they have managed to gain power in this new age of digital control and manipulation and a complicit mass media hungry for advertising dollars from the mob and all its tentacles. The mobsters never went underground, as they appeared to do once they moved to Vegas and other places. Instead, they moved to legitimize themselves through rigged elections and gain government power so they could control the prosecutor’s offices and avoid fighting it out in court all the time. Instead, they now control the courts and everything else. And people aren’t happy about it, which is quite evident in Brazil. And very well could be America’s future if we continue trusting all the wrong people.

What’s Most Wrong in Politics: Consensus building and “getting along”

It was a national embarrassment to have Joe Biden come to Cincinnati and give a speech on bipartisan support to waste 1.4 billion dollars building a new bridge for the vital I-75/71 corridor, bringing with him a whole parade of RINOs and Democrats. That bridge should have been built long ago for a lot less money. The speech by the illegally elected Joe Biden was too late and about all the wrong subjects. I happen to know several of the characters who were with Biden that day in January 2023, well, so I have some perspective on what “bipartisanship” means when Biden says it. Essentially, Biden is in trouble politically. His son is a disaster. The Chinese who have put him in place through election fraud are struggling to put behind them the scam of Covid which they manufactured, distributed, and perpetuated to gain power in the world far more effectively than any military would have, and of course, there’s a new Congress controlled by Republicans who are going to have a chance to conduct many new investigations into Biden’s criminal family and all the sins of the past now that a “Trump Standard” has been set, which no Democrat will be able to live up to. Biden has no other choice but to show up in Ohio with a bunch of boot lickers and try to take the edge off things by showing something that needed to be done, finally getting done. And it was not impressive. To do it, Biden had to sign another 550-billion-dollar infrastructure bill with all kinds of progressive garbage in it. This project is projected to cost another 3.6 billion dollars in the end, likely more, as union cost overruns take a toll and the bureaucrats realize how much they left out of their projections. Instead of being something positive, it was a gross display of everything that was wrong in government. And everyone there looked just pathetic. 

I couldn’t help but think of the irony, and I’ve spoken about Rob Portman quite a lot this year, especially concerning the campaign of J.D. Vance who was just elected to be his replacement. I’ve been hard on Mike DeWine, who was there and I have said the only thing good about him is his wife’s cookies, who, upon meeting them earlier in 2022, she is hard to dislike. And Mitch McConnell from Kentucky has been shown to be a RINO anti-Trumper from the beginning. Sherrod Brown, the other senator from Ohio, is a joke, and another cover-up from the media regarding his messy divorce, which I became involved with while campaigning for Jim Renacci. I had a chance to meet Brown during that story at Miami University, which the media helped him get through, much like they have covered up so many stories with Joe Biden. And then there is Andy Beshear, governor of Kentucky, his election was so close that what we know about election fraud and the methods of his election was very similar to what happened in Arizona this year with Kari Lake. The Democrat Machine cheated to get him elected; only an eternity ago, in this very real war, we didn’t ask those kinds of questions because we didn’t know we needed to. Biden put up on that stage a collection of political misfits on the Ohio River banks across from Longworth Hall, where the popular bridge edges past, and it brought back distinct memories of my life with Rob Portman as he was starting his political career, just how far people fall in life. And knowing all the dreams of Portman from his beginnings, the only thing I could see standing with Biden were political failures using massive amounts of money to save a government that had grown too corrupt to trust. 

During the early 90s, I was very active in Ross Perot’s Reform Party, and Rob Portman was campaigning for a suddenly open congressional seat that had come up in Cincinnati. He was a little older than me at the time, but we got along well and I wanted to help him, so I set up a Sunday night debate on 700 WLW with Portman and a bunch of other candidates for people to hear, which Portman clearly won.  During that campaign, I spent a lot of time with Rob Portman talking about all the reasons he wanted to get into politics and how he wanted to emulate Ross Perot in the Republican Party. Many of our meetings and events occurred across the river from where Biden spoke at Longworth Hall. I could tell many stories about those days involving a reformed Penthouse model married to a wealthy developer and a rag-tag group of political activists who would eventually become the Tea Party 15-16 years later. Along with some of my friends, there are still people who talk about the giant American flag that we hung from the top of Longworth Hall to all who could see it traveling southbound across the Brent Spence Bridge that hung all the way to the ground from the top. Rob Portman was a part of that group of reformers, so I have had high hopes for him over the years. But to see him broken and beaten over the years was sad and pathetic. For him to end his political career essentially sucking air for Joe Biden tells you everything wrong with politics. 

And what is wrong with politics? Well, it’s consensus-building. Once people like Rob Portman accept that getting along with bad people like Joe Biden, Sharrod Brown, Andy Breshear, and China Mitch, rather than actually standing for things, is the start toward expensive political destruction. And Joe Biden, on that day, was actually supporting that flawed premise by showing off all the losers who had been politically beaten and were “working together” in wasting money that should have gone to a project twenty years earlier. The only reason they were all there on that day was that a major political storm was brewing. With all their attempts to get rid of Trump, people still loved and supported Trump, just as people loved Ross Perot many years earlier. And back then, Rob Portman at least said he understood. But once he got to congress for a few terms and then ran for the Senate, the values of Washington D.C. clearly changed Portman. He went from that bright-eyed political reformer who would hang around my rag-tag friends on many political adventures to this washed-out husk of the flesh who propped himself up to an illegal president, showing support for him because the institution of the Senate was more significant than the value of any of them, and that’s where things always go wrong. And it starts with the value of consensus building, with concessions of value where people of good value and bad value compromise with each other, and what people end up with is watered-down, expensive garbage that comes too late and not often enough. All that was on display regarding the bridge announcement in Cincinnati is how corrupt, and costly everything is that a government of criminals can provide only when people are about to throw them all out of power with pitchforks. Ironically, it all started for Rob Portman across the river from where he ended it. And in the end, he was a shell of the person he once had been, and it was very sad but revealing to see it up close, as I had.

It is Joe Biden’s Fault that there Isn’t .50 A.E. ammunition at Cabela’s: Democrat Party communist tampering destroys supply chains from eggs to ammunition

There is an old Ronald Reagan joke, which I will include with this article, that talks about how ridiculous buying a car in Russia was during the open days of communism. Because of the tight government controls on the means of production, the joke went that it took ten years to get on the waiting list to buy a car. But that a person would have to know whether the car would be ready in the afternoon or morning because the plumber was scheduled in the morning, which might pose a conflict. The essence of the story is that government tampering with the marketplace causes production delays, and no matter where in the world it is tried, communism and socialism slow down production. But wait, what about China, you might say, or Vietnam? They are very productive and are the fastest-growing economies in the world. Well, two things are happening there; first, they are very industrious people, not afraid of hard work in most Asian countries, and they have a lot of people to overwhelm the inefficiency of government bureaucracy. The other thing is that the World Economic Forum has artificially propped up all Asian countries through corporate manipulation, so the money they enjoy and investments they see coming in are a direct result of market tampering by hostile forces hell-bent on taking over the world. So the value of Chinese manufacturing at all levels is smoke and mirrors. Communism is the pick of the Desecrators of Davos investors at the World Economic Forum because they like it, and banks like centralized control. So despite the realities of President Reagan’s jokes about Russia, there has been a global push to outspend reality and force the world into communism anyway.   

And there is a reason those same forces felt they had to steal the American election, just as they did the one obviously in Brazil. The world is on fire, and there are protests everywhere, Paris, London, Mexico, and just about anywhere that large populations are struggling to reclaim their capitalism from global commitments from finance into socialism and outright communism. And Joe Biden represents the Democrat’s deep desire to install Chinese communism in America and to rot away Americans’ expectations about production and market value. Now we are seeing the effects of this Democrat Party push for Chinese-style communism everywhere, whether we are talking about baby formula, gas prices, or the latest crisis, the price of eggs. Something many of us take for granted, eggs, which are easy to get in large numbers in America, are now rising in price to dangerous levels because the Biden administration policies have tampered with the market to such an extent that they have interrupted production and delivery which can’t keep up with demand. But for me, this is a much more serious issue going much further than the price of eggs. I see the destruction of the Biden administration differently every time I go to Cabela’s to buy ammunition. I have had through Covid thousands of rounds of ammunition for my .50 A.E. Desert Eagle, which is my carry gun, and it has taken me a while to burn through them. It hasn’t been an issue in a few years, but I used to be able to go to Cabela’s in West Chester, Ohio, and buy all the .50 A.E. ammunition I could want. It was just as easy to buy .500 Magnum S&W ammunition, my other carry gun I take with me everywhere I go. But on this particular day, I couldn’t find them, so I asked the store clerk if they had any, and he just laughed as if what I had said was the funniest thing in the world. “I haven’t seen any of that kind of ammunition in over three years,” he said as if me asking for it was the most absurd thing in the world. 

Now, I can make all aspects of ammunition on my own. I don’t need an ammunition manufacturer to do it for me. Most of the time, ordering all the components, I can assemble my own ammunition by reloading at my home. But I could just as well do it in the middle of the woods with no power grid. The government has obviously done what it can’t do with gun laws; tamper with the supply of ammunition by making it hard for manufacturers to produce it, and they have tampered with the supply chain. The result is that Cabela’s, which is one of their core competencies, has had a hard time getting any ammunition. For a long time during Covid, they struggled to get some of the most common ammunition in the world, 9MM. As I looked at the shelves, I thought they had managed to get most ammunition from .22 through .45 caliber, and equally rifle ammunition as well. But the really big stuff, the exotic stuff I like to use, has dropped off the radar and is likely interrupted forever. You could tell by the way the clerk talked that he had already accepted the limits of global communism and had made himself a victim to those lowered expectations. Whereas, under President Trump, during the year of 2019, the year before Covid, I would have asked for .50 A.E. ammunition, and he would have proudly said something like, “right over, there are six boxes of 20. And if you want, you can get a free hamburger and a 2-litter of Coke for free if you buy five boxes today.” Excesses are expected in American culture, which makes things cheaper.

But for the global market tampering schemes of communists, they want what is happening at Cabela’s. They can’t pass laws to get rid of gun rights, but they can make it hard for people to get ammunition to use. So they have attacked that sector of the economy for personal activism. I’ll still shoot my guns, but they have made it harder and much more expensive to get, and the efforts have been on purpose, clearly. It’s part of the overall communist philosophy of why the Biden administration was put in place, to begin with. Unlike the store clerk at Cabela’s, I don’t accept these ridiculous restrictions that have been artificially imposed on us by out-of-control, stupid government and their tampering desires. I expect to live in a country where I can buy a chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-A and stop by Cabela’s, which is right next door, and buy up several boxes of .50 caliber pistol ammunition all in about 10 minutes so I can get back to doing other things in my life rather than looking for ammunition. The real reason that communist countries have less productivity is that people waste time waiting on the government to do things, and that gives them less free time for personal pleasures. I don’t waste time in my life, so it is quite insulting to waste time looking for things like ammunition that should be easy and quick to get. It’s bad enough when these market restrictions start to emerge with common items like eggs. But you can best see the effects of globalism and the Biden administration’s communist philosophy on luxury items, which are always the first targets of attack by overly centralized governments. When the store clerk laughs at the assumption that we live in such a competent world that .50 caliber ammunition would just be sitting on the shelf, you know you have a big problem on the supply side of an economy. And it was made worse by government not by accident but by purposeful activism that is part of a global strategy. And it’s far worse than many people realize.

A Coup in the Ohio House: Lessons to remember about Democrats, treat them like raccoons always digging through your garbage

There is an important lesson that everyone needs to take notice of regarding the Democrat coup in voting for Jason Stephens as Speaker of the House in Ohio. Republicans who hold a substantial majority in the Ohio House thought they had the Speaker role all mapped out, and it was going to be Derek Merrin. Being outnumbered the way they were in the newly elected body, RINOs and Democrats decided under the chaos of the Holidays to join together to “stop far-right policies.” The communist left sees them precisely as education issues centering around the “Backpack Bill” which allocates funding per child, not per district, which is a terrifying concept for education people. So while Republicans were busy with Christmas, the New Year, and family emergencies, 32 Democrats were convinced to vote for the moderate Republicans Stephens for the Speaker position, while 22 Republicans joined them to give them the majority. The drama over the incident was lost behind the national Kevin McCarthy debates, and it was too late when everyone found out what was going on. Republican Representatives in the Ohio House had been suckered and found themselves caught looking, just as a baseball player batting against a good pitcher stands at the plate expecting a slider or a curve ball and were planning their approach exclusively for those pitches. Then came a 90-mile-an-hour fastball right over the plate, the last thing that was expected. And the Democrats suddenly found themselves in power to protect their education policies and other big government union goodies extorted through years of bad government. For more details on this, you can hear from my good friend Jennifer Gross, a current Representative in Ohio, talk about it on the Brian Thomas show on 55 KRC. It’s a really good interview.

I’m sure Jason Stephens can be worked with, but it will make it much harder to do what many of the Republicans in the Ohio House had intended to do. The issue that remains, it will take several more sessions of Representative leadership to remove the premise of the 22 Republicans who are prone to be RINOs and work with Democrats who are essentially the same thing. They call themselves Republicans because they come from districts where people wouldn’t vote for Democrats strictly because of the name. So they pretend to be Republicans when, in fact, they are Democrats philosophically aligned. And the big union position has crossed many lines over the years; most people have friends or family who has benefited from union extortion, so it’s difficult for them to make a logical statement about them now. President Trump is a union supporter, which further complicates things for many RINOs. Suddenly the Republican Party in Ohio had in President Trump a person union members could vote for, so in the wake of his presidency, the old union problems are still problems, and they are doing everything they can to push reality off as far as possible. And by scheming to get Stephens in the Speaker role, the union types, especially the public sector unions, like those in the teaching profession, feel they can protect the money basket, that funding will continue to go to the wreck of the schools that we currently have, which don’t work and are filled with liberal propaganda. These people are going to fight to keep what they have extorted over the years, and when they saw how things were lined up with Merrin, it terrified them. 

Many from that side of things are calling anything to the political right of Karl Marx “far right,” when in truth, the facts are that everything else has been put in place through deception. Most of what Democrats have done over the years, including their relationship with public unions, has involved deception. And my distinction about union representatives is that all union concepts are socialist and communist in their positions, politically. I have known a lot of people, including family members, who were big union supporters. BIG union supporters, specifically because they worked at the Norwood car plant and Fisher Body in Fairfield, Ohio. Those manufacturing plants couldn’t deal with the unionized labor, and they never should. The Department of Labor’s position of being friendly and advocating for unionized labor penalizing companies who make big investments in communities only to have those investments controlled by union slugs talking about Karl Marx phrases as “workers of the world, unite” to always bring extortion to labor production unless the workers got what they wanted. That was always the radical left position, and they sold it to the public wrapped in the American flag as patriotism. But it was always a communist scam, and anybody who spoke against it was considered radical right winged. I’m okay with that, even with family members and their children who grew up thinking unions were “all-American enterprises.” I have always told them to read a book, then they would know better. Unions are not American and are hostile to capitalism. That makes them an enemy of the American economy and is detrimental to any concept of small government. 

And they have one play in the playbook, radicalism, deception, and cheating to keep any power they have acquired over the years. Once companies realize they won’t be able to run their own investments, that unions will, they shut down and leave, which is precisely what happened in Norwood, Ohio, Fairfield, Ohio, and many other Ohio facilities that watched the industry leave the state because of union activity. But that can’t happen in public education because it’s all attached to government jobs, and government never leaves. You can only make it smaller. And the issue in the Ohio House involving the Backpack Bill was a bridge too far for the radical union types. Once education funding starts going straight to the kids, and performance for that money is measured in the success of the end-use product, it’s over for the big union types who own and operate government schools. So they had to do something to protect themselves from reality.   And they did; under cover of chaos, they elected the RINO Republican Jason Stephens to snatch up the Ohio House Speaker position in a surprise upset while people watched the last Ohio State game and made New Year’s resolutions. I don’t think it’s the end of the world, but it was certainly a lost opportunity. Eventually, that opportunity will come around again because that is the trajectory of politics. Many of those 22 RINOs are only in those positions through some form of deception, and people are getting tired of it. They will be replaced with more conservative members in upcoming elections; that is the trend. Critics might call it “far-right,” but I would call it the America we have always loved and are working to get back to. Any other thought on the matter comes from people lost in the definitions created by the radical left anyway and has no merit in reality. Name-calling and deceit is no way to run a political movement, yet that’s all Democrats have. So they played their hand this time and won because nobody took them seriously. Well, take them seriously; they will do anything for power, and understand that while dealing with them. Don’t play nice with Democrats; treat them like the raccoons digging through your garbage late at night and assume they all have rabies. They are not your friends; they are diabolical representatives of Karl Marx and nothing else.
