The Legal Liability of the Government on E.O. 14042: When our quality of business life decreases, the Biden administration is directly to blame

The Government is Liable for Business Losses Due to their Bad Decisions

Not many people, including most lawyers, have had time to break down Joe Biden’s ridiculously unconstitutional Executive Order 14042, which my nickname for it is 4th down and 1.  It’s about as serious as a football team that is on 4th down, and they only need 1 yard for a conversion, so they perform a hard count hoping to draw the other team offsides and get a five-yard penalty.  They have no intention to throw the ball or run a play, and they hope that in such a way, they can trick their opposition into giving them some free yards on the down and distance because the government has no right even to issue Executive Order 14042.  It is all a bluff to see how much the government can trick people into getting vaccinated off a virus that global conspirators created in a Wuhan lab to remove an American president from office.  Also, there is further trouble from the Biden administration. As it looks now, based on the early auditing process, the Biden presidency was illegal and will have to be undone.  Biden can’t issue tissue paper because it was the media that called the election for him.  States not ever having to face a challenge in the certification process didn’t know what to do.  Mike Pence called Dan Quayle of all people for legal advice on what to do on January 6th.  Looking back, the states should have taken care of certifying their election because massive voter fraud under cover of covid is what put Biden in the White House.  He was not elected by the people but by laziness, deception, and trickery.   So there are lots and lots of problems with Biden’s E.O. 14042.  Lots and lots and more lots, legally, ethically, and historically. 

But what’s fascinating about the whole thing is just how stupid the government is as an institutional entity under the Biden administration and its waves of progressive administrators.  Most of the focus of the Biden vaccine mandate has been spent on the clause forcing any company with more than 100 employees to comply.  Yet, the biggest and most challenging hit came to federal employees in some way or another and all their sub-tier contractors.  If you even smell the work for which the federal government touches, the vaccine mandate is a real threat. There is no short-term legal answer to presenting terrible problems for most employers in the United States.  Recently the FAR flow downs have been passed down the supply chains, and we now have some idea what the federal government was thinking and what they signed up for.  There is a very reckless clause in the FAR that instructs employers what the method of compliance will be, which puts the burden of massive failure squarely on the federal government’s back, which is worth a logical discussion. 

Nestled a few paragraphs down from the FAR I saw from NASA is a section that states, “These safeguards will decrease the spread of Covid-19, which will, in turn, decrease worker absences, reduce labor costs, and improve the efficiency of contractors and subcontractors performing work for the Federal Government.” So there it is, and there is a lot wrong in those few little sentences that set up the federal government for a load of lawsuits.  First of all, there are declarative statements about Covid as a whole.  Colin Powell just died the other day of Covid, or so they say.  Yet, he was vaccinated.  Getting a vaccination is not a protection from Covid 19, so the government lied in their reasoning.  As of the time of the writing, they would have known they were lying as well.  So that’s a problem.  But worse than that, the government states that the purpose of the vaccination mandate is to keep schedules to the Federal Government. By reducing people from getting sick from Covid, they will help improve attendance. 

As we know, as a direct result of the Covid vaccine, employers have had to take on the burden of government office instead of focusing on their core competencies and have turned their human resource departments into compliance centers for enforcement.  The government pushed companies to do what they had no legal right to do, which is why I said that this is a bluff similar to football on a 4th and 1.  In reaction, instead of people jumping offsides as the government hoped, people have dug in, and some, enough to cause significant problems, have taken themselves out of the employment game.  This has been most noticeable in the news over seaport supply chains and Southwest Airlines.  Employees are just refusing to be told to get the shot.  Not all employees, but anywhere around 7 to 10% is enough to screw up companies’ business models and slow them down to a crawl, which has clogged up supply chains everywhere.  The government has once again cost millions of dollars in damage to companies with their interference and activism.  And those losses should be recoverable as damages by the government because of how the FAR was written.  The intention of the federal government was just the opposite, the way they sold it.  It was supposed to reduce lost time action by employees and help stabilize the supply chain due to Covid call-offs.  Oops.  

Even if all this Covid stuff is just a cover story for hiding election fraud, or the results of a completely incompetent administration trying to implement United Nations Marxism into America through change state strategy, the responsibility for the failure still falls on the federal government.  The people, employers, and employees did nothing to deserve this disaster; it’s all the federal government.  Biden got himself in trouble with poll numbers; he wanted to be a tough guy with this Covid vaccine mandate and hope to draw companies offsides.  Many of them were hungry to comply, but the workers refused to play along, and now the combination of efforts has torpedoed the American economy. I can’t wait for that jobs report in October and November; Joe Biden should enjoy those.  But he only has himself to blame.  Yet when people wonder why things are getting so bad out there and why they are much worse under the Biden administration as opposed to Trump, they forget about politics, look at the results between the two presidents, and everything becomes obvious.

The Biden Marxism and authoritarian approach have killed any recovery that was possible coming out of Covid lockdowns, which of course, has never been adequately admitted to.  The real question is, why did we have Covid in the first place?  Why was the NIH funding it, and why isn’t Dr. Fauci in jail?  But the mistakes that have cascaded off Covid have been disastrous.  The Trump administration did a good job even under detrimental conditions.  The Biden people, they can’t get out of their own way.   The Biden vaccine mandate for them was all about testing to see if they could get away with a massive overreach of the American constitution.  But now, they have crippled their own recovery.  It hurts us all, but the blame is squarely on the Biden government.  Some of this has, of course, been on purpose.  But the results of E.O. 14042 have been historically disastrous.  History will never forget the intent that was shown by the government and the reaction by the public.  Americans are not compliant Chinese.  We weren’t going to jump offsides and give the government a free first down.  And because we didn’t, the government is left holding all the losses, and we will pin it on them, forever.

Looks Like its Time to Bring Back Hanging: We have a criminal government, and we must meet it in the street

Maybe its Time to Bring Back Hanging

A recurring theme of American westerns is the temptation of the domestic woman to coax a man not to meet evil in the street and right wrongs but to stay safe and keep the doors shut.  To hide in the bosom of a woman in trade for sexual security replacing mother as the overseer of what’s good in the world.  Of course, the man must do what they must and meet evil in the street and conquer it, then return home to the woman for forgiveness, which usually he gets.  The point to the stories is that women are the guardians to domestic bliss and the love of home and family, but that the threats to those wonderful things come from outside sources, and sometimes to eliminate them, the hero must go and throw all concerns for danger aside and do what has to be done.  That theme was particularly strong in Clint Eastwood’s Pale Rider from 1986.  Sure, women had the right to vote long-established. At that time, women were in the workplace sharing breadwinning activities, tricked by the government to become taxpayers serving the government rather than guardians of the house and protecting the children from the villainy of government.  But that’s a story for another time.  Presently we are faced with the trend of great evil, and it’s time to face it down in the street and figure out what to do about it.  In the Pale Rider theme, two women were tempting Clint Eastwood to stay in the house and live happily ever after with them, hoping to ignore the evils of the world from inside, a mother and her young daughter.  Of course, Eastwood would forget both and face down the bandits in glorious gunfire, doing what needed to be done despite the cries of safety from the women.  And that’s where we find ourselves in a very modern time.  We have a challenge to our order of American hopes and dreams and a real need to throw away safety, security, and domestic bliss to face down evil for all its worth and deal with it squarely.  After the crimes showed just in election fraud from 2020, I think the case for bringing back hanging as capital punishment is more than justified and is something we should have a serious conversation about.

Men and women certainly have different roles in any social order, and since westerns were produced and society has “evolved,” our opinions about things have become murky.  I would argue that all this ambiguity has been on purpose to allow criminal activity.  Like all bad guys in the world, they seldom ever sell their actions that way.  But it takes good people to see bad people for their worth, and sometimes, the good people must risk it all to do what must be done to protect the world from evil.  And to understand how to tell good from bad, it must be clear which is which.  As the social order of our times has been formed by those most hostile to tradition, it is helpful to turn to history and our culture of stories for clarity which I’ve done due to the 2020 election. I’ve spent many weeks on the road in 2021 and traveled all over the Wild West studying history.  Much of it was to finish off my manuscript to The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, a book that makes a case for many things that need to happen in the 21st century. I’ve probably seen every western ever made, but to think about the vast evil I was witnessing, I needed to go and see the places I had read about over so many years and consider the options.  And one thing that continued to come up in the many books I picked up unique to traveling in those western areas was that hanging seemed to work a lot better than the legalisms of the progressive era. 

I was in Deadwood roaming the streets as my family waited for a table to eat at a nearby restaurant as I ran across a book that turned out to be fantastic for this purpose called The Outlaws of South Dakota.  It was the kind of book you wouldn’t just buy on Amazon, it was a local flavor, and it was perfect for getting a good taste of Deadwood’s history.  I had read about so many places in Deadwood that my visit gave me a good foundation for the words on pages, and by the time my family was seated, I had an excellent place to take my research to the next level.  And it was clear from that research, no matter where I traveled, from Deadwood to Lincoln County, New Mexico, that when people would hang bad guys for simple threats and slights against innocent people, the society worked a whole lot better.  When the attempt to replace justice with lawyers and human resource departments was introduced at the start of the progressive era to stop people from shooting each other in the streets, the trend of criminals was to hide their actions behind rules nobody wanted to follow.  And evil spread like wildfire.  After banning alcohol with the 18th Amendment in 1919 and the women’s right to vote in 1921, we can see the intention of governments and the criminals who prospered from the power grabs of the progressive era.  Replacing the woman as the guardian of domestic bliss was the first step, and robbing a man of something to fight for was the second.  The gunfighters in the streets were pushed deep into history, the alcohol slugging loner ignoring the women and meeting a bad guy in the street for frontier justice was a thing of the past, and what the government instead gave us were comb-over lawyers that interfered with justice giving rise to “organized crime” as we would come to know it.

These were the days of Bonnie and Clyde and Al Capone, who would take the government overreach and profit from the chaos.  People no longer stood up to evil or even their wives for the right to justice.  Now preserving justice was not even a domestic problem; everyone hid in their homes and called the government to do the work.  It’s out of this chaos that Saul Alinsky learned from Al Capone himself how to make the Democrat Party into a government-sponsored organized crime syndicate, which is where we find ourselves today.  It seems like a long time, but the election fraud that we saw in 2020 was just the result of 100 years of progressive erosion of justice.  There was no longer a woman to turn away from maintaining domestic bliss and family love to risk it all to face down evil.  Now evil was everywhere, and nobody could see it because nobody was home even to fend it off.  Everyone worked for the government to be good taxpayers to fund a monster government that criminals essentially ran.

We were supposed to maintain that government by elected representatives, but we learned in 2020 that the criminals were running the show, and nobody was meeting them in the streets to stop them.  They didn’t respect our laws, and they certainly didn’t appreciate any of us.  While traveling and reading this year, it became clear that the only way to stop that lack of respect is to get back to the days of what worked and what didn’t.  What didn’t work was putting safety first and listening to what the government wanted to do about justice.  What did work was that people at the front of justice, alone in faraway places like Deadwood, South Dakota, often hung bad people at the point of a crime, where it happened quickly.  And things were much better off than they are now.  So perhaps we should be thinking this way again.  Because what is going on now just isn’t working, and we need it to.  We have a criminal government, and we need to meet it in the street and deal with it accordingly.  But to deal with evil, first, we need to see it.

A Review of ‘I’ll Take Your Questions Now’: It’s all about ‘The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates’

The Truth about Trump’s Success

To understand why I love Stephanie Grisham’s new book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now; you’d have to understand the contents of the excellent book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates or even why I get very excited about Thanksgiving and the jail cell of one of the founders of the Mayflower journey in Canterbury, England.  Or why I get excited about Salisbury, England, where one of the four Magna Cartas currently resides.  Humans have been on a long trek for personal freedom and liberty. When we elected Donald Trump, it was essentially a declaration of independence against the global forces trying to sucker the United States into the grand scheme of globalism, for which most in the Beltway had no idea was even happening. Stephanie’s book indeed revealed that, in all its glorious detail.  Even working so close to the Trump family, Stephanie never figured out what happened or why.  And the media she had such a tight relationship with never understood either.  Without knowing it, their lives were prepared for them to think a certain way about things, which essentially was just another attempt by global forces to dominate those lesser magistrates of politics from top to bottom. Henry the 8th burned people at the stake or Henry the II killed the great Thomas Becket at the Canterbury Cathedral to rule us all with the same tyranny. I’ve stood in that spot and rubbed the ground where his blood was spilled for going against Henry the 8th and the power grabs between the church and state.  I have a profound hatred of tyranny in all forms, and I’ve been researching it in person around the world.  I appreciate The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates not just in principle but in the courage of a long line of patriots in forming them.  And when you wonder why the rest of the world doesn’t get it, you get a tell-all book like Stephanie Grisham’s, which reminds you of the real problems. 

I came out of reading I’ll Take Your Questions Now feeling very sorry for Stephanie Grisham.  Through the Trumps, she had opportunities she would never have received under more conventional White House occupants.  President Trump is a big personality who figures he can overcome anything.  He takes chances on people others wouldn’t, and that is undoubtedly the story of Stephanie Grisham, who would become the Press Secretary of both the President and First Lady in the White House during their term in office.  I understand Trump’s management style.  Sometimes you take big chances on people, and you find that diamond in the rough that turns out to be spectacular.  They just needed a leader to give them a chance to shine.  But often, probably 75% of the time, you get a dud that burns out, and that is what happened to Stephanie by the end of the Trump White House.  Covid quarantining, conventional thinking on her part, and her boyfriend’s nasty break-up, who also worked in the White House, was too much for her, and she broke.  Competitive relationships with co-workers didn’t help, and she didn’t have it in her.  Because she worked for the Trumps closely, after the White House, the world has not been kind to Stephanie, so she wrote a tell-all book detailing intimate secrets about the Trumps hoping to project her into a new life with a fresh start.  She admits that she’s a kind of liberal that identifies more as a John McCain Republican than a Donald Trump.  And by the end of her time with Trump, that became more obvious for her.  She didn’t have the stomach for all the unconventional thinking, and she fell from grace and wrote about it as if she were writing a diary that she’d share with the world.  In that way, it’s a fascinating book. 

I don’t typically talk about The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates. Still, as I was reading Stephanie’s book, I was involved in several engagements that brought it all together for me.  First was legal advice regarding the illegitimate Joe Biden’s executive order on all federal contractors.  This is just the kind of overreach warned about in that great book based on that long trajectory of freedom that I am obsessed with.  Then I was at a candidate forum with several people running for Trustee in townships I’m concerned with. I noticed that my friends, Mark Welch and Todd Minniear, discussed the book as part of the philosophical debate regarding Covid protocols and many recent instances of government overreach.  Todd brought his copy of the book to the meeting, which impressed me.  These were a couple of guys running for local office who understood the job of office pushback in politics to protect the interests of the people who voted them into power.  Stephanie never understood because she was such a conventional and educated thinker what role Trump played along those same lines.  The assumption is that the President of the United States is in the most powerful position in the world.  But to the Davos crowd, the United Nations people genuinely want to rule the world as a conglomerate of socialists from the Old World.  And the aggression of China who plans to follow Marxism to global domination, the United States is just another country.  They don’t care about our laws, our way of life, or what happens to us in the future. They’d love to not compete with us, so when it comes to the President of the United States, they want to view us as a lesser magistrate.  In that role, which voters for Trump have an innate understanding along the lines of the trajectory of freedom, they put Trump in power to resist those forces.  Even as close as she was to all the significant events, Stephanie never saw the big picture.  She only ever saw how the media might interpret those events, so she set to work to steer the Trumps this way and that for the benefit of the press.  Never for the overall objective of what was suitable for our country. 

I think it helped that Stephanie felt like a woman scorned fresh from a divorce of the Trumps, complaining as an ex-wife would about everything they hate about someone they once loved.  The rejection of that love drove out of her a truth we may never have seen otherwise.  But what she thought were faults, where Trump didn’t listen to other people, where the President would refer to himself as a genius, in the scheme of what it took to resist the imposition as a lessor magistrate from global forces, Trump was perfect and highly successful.  But even more so, Melania Trump proved that she was more than just a pretty face.  She was a keen and influential voice in the White House who truly loved class and freedom in ways nobody understood.  As I said in the video above, I’ve met the Trumps on a few occasions.  Occasionally when I get around celebrities, I’m not the type who asks for a picture, but they’ll ask if I want one, so I’ll take one.  But I don’t seek them out because I like to put people at ease under those conditions. I’ve seen the Trumps up close, and I thought about those meetings while reading Stephanie’s book, and many things made more sense to me for the positive.  We still need the Trumps, and we needed the Trumps when we had them.  And I’m glad Stephanie told her story, even if it was a little crazy at times talking about old boyfriends and dogs.  But the key to the Trumps and this period of time went unidentified.  Even those who were closest to the President and First Lady had no idea why they were so important and the key to the future of the freedom movement, which goes back thousands of years and is only climaxing in our present time against a shit shot from midcourt with no time on the clock for tyranny to rule again.

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.

Covid was Always a Plan for the Great Reset: Who knew what and when, the timeline of the crime against America

The Covid Timeline toward the Great Reset

Like most magic tricks, the actual gag is pulled off away from the eyes and ears of the audience.  And the Pandemic with Covid as the star is no different.  We have been debating the death counts, which have no connection to reality as deaths are usually measured.  The government wants for some mysterious reason to use those death counts to drive panic.  Why?  The talk has been about vaccine mandates.  The talk has been in masks, social distancing, and control over the economy.  Control over the vote.  But when real medical options are presented, they have been slapped away as conspiracy and even dangerous.  As the year and a half monstrosity of authoritarianism has progressed, we now know that Dr. Fauci’s NHI had directed funds to “gain of function” research at the Wuhan lab that produced Covid-19.  Even more, we now know that Covid was made in a lab, deliberately tampered with to make it more transmissible among humans.  Why?  We can only speculate based on our experience, but something has always been very wrong with Covid and the government’s strange obsession with it.  I would call it terrorism by the government, just as bad as 9/11 or any hostile act we have ever seen as an attack on our country.  I would call it a declaration of war by China on American capitalism.  But you don’t have to take my word for it.  Just follow the facts, and they will tell you all you need to know about Covid and the world’s governments using it to grab power for themselves and hide crimes they had been committing to enriching themselves, which were always meant to shield them from justice.

As I said in the video above, I called the Covid pandemic an act of terrorism from the outset.  I follow politics closely, the way many people follow Fantasy Football picks, so I remember how it was in December going into 2020 from 2019.  My wife and I were in a highly crowded Orlando airport waiting out a flight delay.  There were people from all over the globe practically sitting on top of each other, waiting for their flights to catch up due to bad weather.  I was desperately trying to find a quiet place to make an overseas call with some clients.  It was frustrating, and tempers were flaring.  As I was on the call, I watched the television hanging from the ceiling covering world news reports.  Socialists and communists worldwide were worried about the election year coming up in America and what could be done to remove Trump from office.  At that time, Nancy Pelosi was trying to make the second impeachment of Trump stick, but it wasn’t going anywhere with the call with Ukraine.  Trump didn’t do anything wrong, but they were trying to harm him so that voters would remove him from office.  But it wasn’t working.  There were zero talks about Covid 19, and I was in a highly high-risk zone in an airport.  There were direct flights from China and lots of Chinese people visiting Disney World.  But there were no masks, no social distancing, and no government interference.  Everyone eventually found their flights and lived happily ever after, and lived

A month later on Netflix, I noticed a strange docuseries called Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak, which would tell the same story of what Covid-19 would become.  The series came out on January 22nd.  News reporters started talking about Covid-19 cases about that precise time, and Trump’s quick reaction to it was to ban flights from China to stop the spread.  I laughed when I saw it and told my wife that the report was likely just as Orson Wells had done with War of the Worlds radio when he had scared everyone into thinking that an alien invasion was happening.  I said that the media was trying to draw attention to the Netflix series, and that’s all it was.  I watched the series, and it even covered the vaccine debate, whether or not governments should force people to get vaccines for disease control.  All the panic was driven by people like Bill Gates and their sponsored Event 201, which had just simulated a coronavirus outbreak that had taken place in October of 2019, just before my wife and I had taken our vacation to Orlando.  By the time we had the Super Bowl in the United States and moved into February. The Senate did not remove Trump from office after that second impeachment; the world went into overdrive with coronavirus using daily stories and death counts to essentially simulate everything that had been talked about in the Netflix show.  It was almost as if they were following a script.  It was no longer War of the Worlds on the radio where Orson Wells had to calm a public he had driven to panic.  This was a Plan B if the House failed to impeach President Trump to use coronavirus to cheat the 2020 election and get rid of him.  That way, as the following weeks would show, the lockdowns and CDC measures were all about changing our society in preparation for the Great Reset, as intended by The World Economic Forum, which then points back to the origins of Covid-19, who knew what, and when. 

As Ohio went into lockdown mode by the middle of March and I talked to several House and Senate members knocked on their heels by what Governor Mike DeWine was doing, I learned that DeWine had been asking for special dictatorial powers the previous year for just such an emergency as Covid.  Well, that was interesting.  What conferences was he in which would let him know that something like Covid was coming? We’ve all lived a long time and never saw anything like Covid before, so why would DeWine be asking to be emperor of Ohio under pandemic emergencies essentially.  The legislature, of course, denied him of that effort. Still, under the new CDC guidelines, DeWine was one of the first governors to go, full dictator, paving the way for the mess the blue state governors would place on people the rest of the year, dragging out the Covid narrative until after the election.  Then once Joe hiding in his basement Biden was president, Covid could magically go away, and the Democrats would get the credit for managing the made-up pandemic and steer America into the Great Reset making all the socialists and communists of the world happy. 

But things didn’t quite work out; the Biden administration found that people were not accepting his presidency. The more they tried to implement Great Reset politics, the more Americans hated him. The jobs reports were disasters, and inflation was creeping up, driving up costs for everything.  Just a few months in the Biden administration, people thought they would have an easy time of it, collapsing America and “Building Back Better.” But a series of disasters like Afghanistan, the Open Border problems, the continued stories of money from China going to Biden shown on the famous laptop wouldn’t go away.  More evidence that Dr. Fauci was involved with China creating Covid-19 as a bioweapon to destroy the American economy wouldn’t disappear.  So the Biden people pulled Covid-19 off the shelf and tried to play the game again to hide all their missteps, which is where we are today.  They want us to look at everything except what’s going on, which is obvious now.  But what’s not so obvious is who knew what and when did they know it.  We understand that the Pandemic was planned, Netflix made a show about it to sell the idea of government control to the public essentially.  We know Event 201 was on lots of people’s minds and that members of the media were being coached on it so that when it was decided to pick a virus and use it as the Great Reset, everyone would know the script.  But how did Mike DeWine know that he needed to ask for absolute power the year before, even before the Netflix show?  How many people like him were told what was coming and why they kept it a secret? 

Well, what we do know was that Covid-19 was not an accident.  It was purposeful terrorism meant to change our way of life and control a new authority class.  The perpetrators planned to scare innocent people into giving away their freedoms in exchange for safety. It was an act of terror that far surpasses anything ever attempted on planet earth.  And all those who were involved, even the planners of the Netflix series, need to be brought to justice for their role in the mess.  We are not talking about people with good, health-saving intentions as they have attempted to disguise themselves.  We are talking about malicious terrorists who would do anything and everything to gain more power and hide much more severe crimes from the eyes of the curious.  And what we do know now is that there was intent to commit these vast crimes, which is where a corruption investigation would begin.  That intent was forecasted well in advance.  The world, the people who wanted to launch the “Great Reset,” wanted Trump out of the way, and they tried to stuff all of us in our homes so that they could cheat the election and make it happen.  They didn’t care about American law since they were foreign actors seeking to overthrow our nation, so committing election fraud was no big deal to them.  They had paid off enough politicians like Mike McConnell to get away with it, so they didn’t care.  And they hid their crimes and intent to commit those crimes behind Covid-19.  They created a panic to give them cover for the removal of a president.  And they built the bioweapon to cooperate with China, who would be the fall guy if anybody ever found out about it.  But the funding for the project came from Dr. Fauci himself, a plant in the White House who laughed at Trump behind his back because he knew what the gig was and what role he played in it.  And from there, the rest is up to us.  We know what happened, but what are we going to do about it tomorrow?  Remember, the terrorists of the world wanted Trump out of the way so they could get away with the Great Reset.  It was always about that, and they used Covid to mask their actions.

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

All Read Flag Laws are Government Overreach

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

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

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

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

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

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

Socialist Antonio Guterres Thinks He’s President of the World: The United Nations guilt in trying to topple America

The Leader of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, is a Socialist from Portugal

To add to what I have said about election fraud and what we learned from the Maricopa County audit in Arizona, all roads for much of what is wrong in America can be traced back to United Nations tampering with our sovereignty using China as the strawman.  Just as China uses North Korea as a strawman, the United Nations, filled with socialists and communists, are using global crises they manage to overthrow America with Cloward and Piven’s tactics meant to undo everything for their Great Reset.  I explained the whole process in a previous video, but I needed to provide readers with proof.  We don’t talk about him in the daily news, especially in the media of the United States.  But if you attend the Davos World Economic Forum or one of these Climate Summits, you’ll see clearly where the trouble in the world is.  China is now in trouble in the United States for its role in unleashing Covid-19.  Now we have their tampering in the American election and many other problems.  This has turned up the heat of talk of a new Cold War between the United States and China.  China has been caught in some bad stuff against the United States, and there will have to be some payback.  This set Antonio Guterres in a bit of a panic as he interviewed a few outlets expressing his frustration about the challenges presented with this new potential Cold War.  For many reasons, to see this kind of stuff, you’d have to pay attention to news that occurs outside of the American markets, which I watch like a hawk.  And it’s the way that the United Nations thinks of itself which should worry everyone.

The United Nations has been operating in the background for many decades in The United States.  Every time I see a god damn roundabout being built or some fresh out of college bootlicking socialist on a zoning commission wanting to put in a new sidewalk, it reminds me of how deep the United Nations Agenda 21 infected our culture.  Everything from Smart Meters, which were put into place around 2010 to record our energy consumption, and eventually tax us on our carbon footprint, to the alternative forms of energy through Green New Deals.  With just a little research, you can see that the United Nations is doing what Europe failed to do in the War of 1812, the American Revolution, and two World Wars.  Again, not a conspiracy theory but something that becomes very obvious when studying history. The purpose of the two world wars was to use Hitler as a strawman to provoke the world to join together against a common enemy.  That is why there was so much support for Hitler in Europe before him going crazy.  He was propped up to create a war.  European leaders were guided to both World Wars by using Germany as the launch point for change.  They wanted first to form the League of Nations, which the United States rejected, then start the United Nations after World War II.  Which of course, FDR wanted to become a leading force.  Just as the war with Japan was meant to pull communism into the region of China and all of Southeast Asia, these tamperings of what many call the Global Elite have been going on since communication around the world became so much easier.  Of course, the media would be used for such advancements.   Nobody needed tanks and guns anymore; those types of wars were only propagated to satisfy the human need to see the kinds of conflict they understood.  Meanwhile, the actual attackers were working behind the scenes pitting countries against each other so they could fill the power vacuum in their wakes as they fell. 

Antonio Guterres Thinks he’s President of the World

The United Nations is embedded all over American policy, and it shouldn’t be.  It lost power under Trump, which is precisely why they had no problem supporting a change state that broke American law repeatedly.  They had no problem pushing China’s will for global domination into attacking America through election fraud to put Biden in power and to unleash the Covid bioweapon to stop our economy and force us into socialism.  It was a classic Cloward and Piven strategy used by the socialists running the United Nations.  People in America assume that everyone in the world is like us, but they are far from it.  Step away from the American media for just a few hours, and the differences will become evident quickly.  The world is filled with jealous old-world socialists who do not want America to succeed, and they think they can topple the American spirit the way they have all over the world. They’ve managed to tie us all together with global trade making a messy divorce with any country nearly impossible.

Meanwhile, they would profit off the misery with power grabs as the rest of us fought it out.  What gave it all away to me this past week, as America was struggling with the Biden administration’s disastrous policies on the border, over Covid, over the economy, and many other things, it all moved from suspicion to fact.  Antonio Guterres’s interviews about America and China relations showed how troubled he was that things weren’t going as planned.  Americans were not just following Joe Biden over a cliff.  They were fighting back and pushing for a Cold War with China, which was not supposed to happen.  China was supposed to be the antagonizer and successor to America.  America was supposed to fall due to Covid and the regime change.  And that hasn’t happened.  Instead, America is getting angrier and more obstinate, and for the socialists and communists playing this game, things were now getting dangerous.

You can always tell the truth by what people do or don’t do, and in the case of Joe Biden’s speech to the United Nations this past week, he didn’t talk about China, because essentially we know from many sources China has its hand up Biden’s caboose.  That by itself is bad enough, but for the puppet masters in the United Nations. They knew that the World Health Organization was trying to impose global socialism with Covid and knew China had manufactured the virus as a bioweapon.  They also knew they had to get rid of Trump to bring America into the socialist fold of the world.  He was making fools of them, so yes, they were all aware of the need to steal the election of 2020.  What did they care about breaking American election laws?  They planned to destroy America with Joe Biden as president, so big deal.  What was America going to do, put them in jail for tampering with our election machines by hacks conducted on the other side of the world?  Were we going to go to war with China and risk not getting cyber chips for our PlayStation 5s?  Of course not, they had us all by the balls, and we were forced to take it.  They controlled the media, so nobody was talking about these things, except in markets in other places worldwide.  By watching them, you will see what’s been going on.  The United Nations was making their move to take over the world and regulate all of us in it, just like Glenn Beck’s book Agenda 21 did many years ago.  Read that book again, and you’ll see that it doesn’t sound so far-fetched today.  Because what has been going on with Covid-19 comes straight off those pages.  The playbook is now open for us to see, and that is when people like Antonio Guterres, the socialist leader of the United Nations, out of Portugal are revealed to be what they really are.

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

Shut Down The Government

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The World Bet Against America, Bad Decision

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

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

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

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

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

Vote for Darbi Boddy to Lakota School Board: Sandy Wheatley and Old Joan Powell are terrified she’ll win

A Great Young Lady to Run for the Lakota School Board

For much of the last year, some of us from the old No Lakota Levy group have been looking for a way to replace the school board at Lakota with fresh new faces.   We heard from the school board that they had wasted all the surplus money from declining enrollment and that Brad Lovell was pushing for a property tax increase in either 2021 or 2022.  So rather than get the gang back together to throw money at fighting an eventual tax increase because the school board couldn’t manage their money, we started having meetings looking for school board replacements. These people would be interested in becoming a school board member but weren’t sure how to get there.  This year, in 2021, three school board seats are coming up, all flat-line liberals.  And I’m happy to hear that we now have three Republican-endorsed candidates to challenge them.  Butler County will see that they are voting for conservatives instead of the usual closet liberals. The latter is always the teacher unions’ pick to grease the skids for the next contract negotiation for mandatory pay increases, which Lakota doesn’t need. I’ve written articles on two of those three Republican-endorsed candidates.  But there is one that I’m happy to announce who received her endorsement at the end of August, Darbi Boddy.  I first met Darby at one of those early meetings, and since then, she has impressed me with her diligent work ethic.  She is sharp and is running for all the right reasons, and I can say that she would be great on the Lakota school board.  Instead of just fighting the current school board’s bad decisions, Darbi will be part of the solution with a few more votes.

Darbi Boddy and Her Very Nice Family

One of the big tricks is that the school board candidates have been sold to us as non-partisan.  That has essentially allowed Democrats or people who call themselves Republicans to get elected in Butler County.  But they vote and manage as liberals, which is why Lakota has been a mess for so many years.  No matter how much money we have given them, they have wasted it as all significant government types do.  It’s one thing to get angry at how the rest of the world is, but school boards are local and are some of the parts of our government that we are supposed to have the most control over.  But when you can’t even get a school board to do the right thing, you know government is hopeless.  However, this year we finally have a choice. We’ve tried before to get conservatives elected, and when we do, it’s been one here, one there.  Then they get attacked because they are outnumbered, and it’s just been an absolute disaster.

For the old No Lakota Levy folks, it’s all about money.  We all have grown children, and we don’t want Lakota asking for money over their bad decisions.  We want the local community who want the free babysitting service to do well, have nice kids and have an overall asset to our neighborhoods.  But there comes a price where that sentiment expires.  Lakota hasn’t been asking for money since 2013, when they finally passed their last levy after we fought them on it for four years, and it was sometimes bloody.  My policy was to leave Lakota alone for the most part so long as they weren’t asking for money.  But now, in 2021, Brad and the gang have spent their surplus.  Now it’s time to deal with it.  The best way to do that is with a management change of the board now that a majority of the board is up for re-election. 

Darbi Boddy on Channel 5 News

I know all the candidates running as Republicans very well.  And one thing about Darbi Boddy specifically is that she works hard.  In almost every event I have been to over the last several months, she has been there shaking hands and introducing herself. I’ve seen her pressed under contentious conditions, and she has conducted herself exceptionally well.  She has always been cool and intelligent, and the more I have come to know her, the bigger a fan I have become.  I will say I am voting for her without hesitation.  She is conservative in every way I can see; she is the opposite of our current school board.  And in speaking with her, I am sure she can help manage the budget, which is very generous for what we already give Lakota.  All this Critical Race Theory nonsense starting in Columbus by the DeWine administration will be overturned at Lakota by Darbi.  She is also solid on the transexual issues that have been trying to creep in through the current board members, especially with the pick your sex bathrooms that progressive politics has been trying to sell us with old radical progressive activists like Sandy Wheatley and Joan Powell. 

But further than those negative factors, I think Darbi cares about the school system.  She cares about it in ways I don’t.  I believe public education is a disaster that needs to be completely fixed, starting with everything John Dewey built it with.  Darbi reminds me a lot of Lynda O’Conner.  Lynda is the only Board member at Lakota who has been trying to make things better, but she’s outvoted 4 to 1.  And the peer pressure against her by the other progressive disasters has been reprehensible.  Darbi would be a good compliment to Lynda on the board. 

What’s best that I have learned about Darbi is that she is very engaging, friendly, and knowledgeable.  When I have talked to her, I have thrown her lots of curveballs, little things that I use to measure character, and she always hits them.  She has been great at speaking with lots of different types of people without being fake about it.  Her sincerity is unquestionable. Since I first met her, I’ve been a fan of hers, but you never know how things will turn out.  On this little journey, which was to get things started, it’s nice to see someone like her running as an option.  I always say that you have your favorite people about these types of projects, but things don’t often go the way you’d like them to.  Things happen; people don’t get along for this reason or that.  But at the end of it, you want to get the lawnmower started, and it needs to run on its own.   The intent from the beginning was never to micromanage the school board members.  We needed people who would be their own people and run things as reasonable people would on their own.  We started the conversation, and of those, Darbi has turned out to be one of the best and most potent candidates, and I’m happy to see her on the ticket. I’ve known many politicians, and of them, I can’t say I’ve ever seen one who works harder than Darbi Boddi.  And it’s not just been for a week or two here and there.  With Darbi, it’s been hard work for months and months.   If that’s what she’s like, imagine what she could do on the Lakota School Board.  I can’t wait to find out.
