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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why Friday the 13th is So Scary: The FBI attacks Mike Lindell at a Hardees Drive-thru

Did you know that the Knight’s Templars invented checks because they controlled so much centralized banking in Europe during the early 14th Century that they could cover the cost of an issue in one region that needed to be cashed in another? They invented the concept of the kind of banking we think of today. Their power and influence had benefited the King of France and the Pope at the time, until they realized that the Knight’s Templars had gained too much power and that they were a threat that needed to be crushed. So on Friday the 13th, 1307, the Pope and the King of France conspired to arrest and torture members of the Knight’s Templers, confiscate their wealth, and destroy the order in one of the most massive transfers of wealth ever to occur in a civilized society.   That is also why, even today, we look at Friday the 13th with dread because it is remembered as an “unlucky day” because of what the Catholic Church did to the Templers to destroy the order. Many Knight’s Templars fled France and Spain due to this action. They took their movement underground hiding in northern England and Scotland and resurrected themselves as the freemasonry movement. This is also why there is much fear regarding secret societies operating in the background of our political order. In a lot of ways, they had to. The Knight’s Templars had picked up a lot of foreign ideas while Crusading in the Holy Land and had become obsessed with the rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon, and they were beginning to work a global order that would allow that process to occur, which was why the state of Israel was created at the end of World War II. History teaches us that nothing we see today is new but rather just the recurrence of the same mistakes that have always driven elements of civilization.

So it is in that context that we must view the attacks by the Biden administration on the MAGA movement. It’s also time for those late to the party to admit to massive amounts of election fraud in the 2020 election. Democrats can only win if they cheat because there simply aren’t enough Americans who are liberal to keep them in power, and it’s been that way for a long time. While it’s true that the freemasonry movement started in America as a kind of New Atlantis, according to Roger Bacon’s book that was so popularly received in Masonic circles, the movement itself became much more liberalized and Marxist during the 19th Century. It used the works of Karl Marx, who was a Mason, to topple capitalist governments around Europe, and Russia, then to spread down into China to bring about their new Liberal World Order and essentially control the world through centralized banking, centralized global government, and an oriental religion that started in Egypt to be used around the world for all the purposes we are seeing today. Of course, they committed election fraud, of course, they gained control of our media culture, and of course, they have paid off enough politicians to allow them to make these massive power grabs. And of course, they wanted to get rid of Trump and put in their puppet president Biden so that their Liberal World Order, as articulated in Germany yet again as many of these global conquest governments have in the past, this time through Klaus Schwab through the World Economic Forum, could have their Great Reset. 

Those tables have been turned just like the destruction of the Knight’s Templars before. The Templars went underground to consolidate their power and then use it to take over all of Europe, then the world for all the goals they had established during the Crusades. And they are still at it. There are freemasonry temples in just about every community in America. I was just in St. Ignace, Michigan, a pretty small town on the lakeside of the Great Lake Huron, and guess what? There was a large Masonic Lodge there, one of the most significant structures in the little town. It’s not until the higher degree of membership for initiates that they discover the real story and have to act out the killing of the Solomon Temple architect, Hiram Abiff. The lower degrees of freemasonry do many Christian-feeling community work like the Shriners and conduct a brotherhood that looks Christ-like.  But the real motives are very Old Testament and eastern in religious viewpoint, with a deliberate Gnostic outlook that is more Egyptian than western in nature. And their goal is not to advance the western world of Greek and Roman understanding but to resurrect ancient religions pre-dating even Egypt by the time it’s all said and done. So, of course, that order today shown to us in the practices of globalism is going to attack with viciousness against defenders of western capitalism for everything they have in them. That is how the Never Trumpers and the liberals of the modern world have joined together to destroy this MAGA threat to everything they have worked for over the preceding centuries. They are out for blood, as they always have been, and the threat of MAGA to them is very real, just as real as that famous date of Friday the 13th. They remember it well and plan to strike back this time before an organized government can do it to them again.  When Mike Lindell was accosted by the FBI in the drive-thru of a Hardees just to essentially steal his phone and gain intel on how to destroy him because he was challenging the last election, the sinister nature of their preservation movement was clear. The FBI just raided President Trump’s home, marched Steve Bannon around in handcuffs, and delivered papers to 35 other MAGA leaders across the country. They were doing to MAGA what the King of France had done to the Templars, but this time they would be the aggressors, not so much operating out of the shadows, as they have for centuries, but out in the open, not caring who would see them. The FBI no longer cares if people know what they are really about, preserving the Liberal World Order as it has been built through modern freemasonry, now wearing the mask of the World Economic Forum.   The anti-MAGA forces in the Washington D.C. swamp are not for America. They are all about destroying it and building a global network for which they control. They don’t care about the American Constitution.   They abandon their efforts at a New Atlantis long ago. They have used America to instill their Liberal World Order in every country in the world. They have empowered China as the next financial market. They are trying hard to do.

How Will Electric Vehicles Pull RV Trailers: Climate religious fanatics want to get rid of gas-powered cars, but electric cars aren’t powerful enough for American lifestyles

Videos like the one shown of Castle Rock at St. Ignace, Michigan, would not be possible without the RV lifestyle that is such a big deal in my family. I like my family, my kids, the grandkids, the sons-in-law, my wife, and our dogs, I love it, and we make several trips a year, generally to some remote part of the country to see what is unique there and to return with some spectacular experience and good memories. Recently we took our various RVs to St. Ignace, which I considered an easy drive from Cincinnati. We’ve been on trips where we would do 600 miles per day, breaking camp in the morning and stopping many miles later only to pitch camp wherever that might be. And we would do that for days on end, especially traveling out West. We’ve been on trips out West where not only my whole family but members of the extended family were traveling together in a convoy of RVs, and it’s quite a cool way to see the world yet still have all the familiarity of home. Campgrounds for RVs are unique places with like-minded people who are there for all the same reasons, so the experience is usually always very good. It’s really a great thing to be able to take your home with you while traveling. But the St. Ignace trip to that region of America was what I considered close. We left in the morning and pitched our camp for dinner while family members trickled in at their convenience. And it was in that way that we were able to go see many interesting things in that local region, like Castle Rock, together. 

Usually, on these kinds of trips, I set up a little mobile office outside the camper because I typically get up way before everyone else. And at that little location, I have a little refrigerator and power for my computers, and I can also catch the news. So during that trip, there was a lot of talk on the news about electric cars and California imposing new rules that by 2035 they would make it so that only electric cars would be allowed on their roads. As I looked around from my little portable office at some of the big rigs, the Class As and Cs, and many large trailers like luxury yachts on wheels, I wondered how that would work. Obviously, the people saying such things about electric cars didn’t understand the “trailer” markets in transportation and how important they were to American life, or they just didn’t care. If you stand along a highway and count cars, you will find that about every 15th vehicle is pulling some kind of trailer, whether it’s an RV, a boat, or landscapers dragging around their lawn mowing business. Trailers are a big part of American life. And electric cars can hardly keep up with the needs of just one vehicle traveling more than a few hundred miles. The technology for electric cars isn’t even close to being good enough to hold a charge for a sustainable distance, let alone pulling  a trailer while traveling. When we travel with our RV, we get around 12 miles per gallon, which many would consider great. Some of the big trucks get under 10 miles per gallon, which climate activists find reprehensible. But Americans who prefer to travel with an RV are quite happy to pay for the bad gas mileage because it gets them off the grid enough to relax. There is nothing like stopping for gas and using your own restroom, getting drinks out of your own refrigerator, or doing like my wife and I did at a Cabela’s in Ann Arbor, Michigan, when we didn’t want to waste time on the road to eat at a sit-down restaurant, we just ate in our camper kitchen in the parking lot. I had to stop by and get some shotgun primers, and we were eager to get back on the road. The RV lets us live that way, and it’s one of the best ways to travel that you can imagine. 

I think it’s fair to say that my wife and I have traveled all over the world using all possible means. We’ve had a little bicycle cart pull us along in Paris, we’ve flown in big luxury aircraft, traveled in first-class seats overseas, by train, boat, and everything you can imagine. But there is nothing better than RV travel, and Americans, a lot of Americans, love their RVs. Electric cars cannot pull an RV trailer. If California ever does make it illegal to travel with anything but an electric vehicle, they will hamper their economy to ridiculous levels. They obviously haven’t thought things through, or they think they can eradicate the RV market because they hate it and think they’ll get away with it. But that is a terrible miscalculation. The kind of people who travel by RV are willing to get terrible gas mileage to take their homes with them on a trip because they want to be away from liberals and their liberal grid while on vacation. Campsite owners get it; RV campers like to be left alone. They don’t want a housekeeper. They don’t want to interact with people in the hotel lobby; every time they want to leave. They don’t want to be bothered, and any attempt to take that freedom away from them will result in very destructive political discourse.

The way we like to travel, even with gas behind much more than with just a regular car, is far cheaper. Otherwise, we would have to pay to be entirely on the grid of the Liberal World Order, the hotels, the restaurants, the toll roads, and everything we would do while on a trip we’d have to pay for. Then multiply that times the number of people we usually travel with, which is ten or more people, and you’d have a travel bill of ten to twenty thousand dollars. With the RV, a trip to St Ignace is just a few thousand dollars, which is much more practical, especially if you plan to do it several times a year. Liberals, the climate lunatics who make up all these proposed stupid rules, don’t like families either, so if something they do destroys the American family, they consider it a bonus. But before that happens, the people who use RV travel to vacation away from the Liberal World Order, the TSA agents at airports, the womb to tomb hotel accommodations where your personal space is constantly under siege by noisy people, always waiting in line for restaurants to serve you three meals a day for a week or two, and suddenly travel isn’t worth it. And places like St. Ignace would suffer significantly because it’s only because of RV travel that my family would have considered going there for vacation.   Because of RV travel, we can take the family to many such locations that otherwise wouldn’t get any attention. So this proposal for electric cars attacks more than just the gas-powered transportation industry; it attacks the basic needs that Americans have to engage in travel and adventure. To go to places like the cheesy tourist trap Castle Rock. Which would be terrible because out of all the cool places that we went, when the grandkids and my kids think back on the good memories of our vacation together, it will be the spontaneous stops like we had at Castle Rock that they remember most. And that is what is at threat through the stupidity of liberalism most and why their proposals must be defeated in every way possible at the ballot box.

Liberals are Too Stupid to Hurt You: But they are also too stupid to know better

It’s time to admit something to ourselves that might sound harsh initially, but if you want to solve the problem, you have to identify the root cause. And that is that liberals, all liberals, are pretty stupid and that the rights they are fighting for are to make the rest of the world as dumb as they are, which of course, is detrimental to the causes of the human race. Liberals are dumb people, and what is worse than any of that, they are too dumb not to know how dumb they really are. Because they lack the ability to think, reason, and build their lives constructively, they always think they are the smartest people in the room. And through the disguises of collectivism, where they hide their stupidity behind a wall of mass opinion and popular sentiment, they complete a ruse that is mostly designed for themselves to provide the illusion that they have intelligence. Yet, the essence of their movement, of all that they stand for, is that they are fighting for the right to be stupid and to make the rest of the world that way, so they aren’t exposed as insufficient for a proper existence. When you have to talk to them, liberals are about as stupid as a typical animal, barely able to find food for themselves while they are awake as they plot and scheme the world around them to have more time to sleep. They aren’t about living life; they stand for turning the mind off with drugs, mindless entertainment, and overly sexualized lifestyles that an average horny dog might partake in while humping the leg of everyone who steps into their home. Liberals are gross, barbaric, and have nothing to offer the intellect of a long history of human endeavor and are not only detriments to themselves but to all, they come in contact with.

The Biden speech in Philadelphia is just one example of this stupidity. Someone in the White House and representative of the Democrat Party thought it would be a good idea to put a senile old man in front of a building draped in red, with military figures in the background, and that the optics would be beneficial to them in some way. These are the same idiots who have hampered California with insufficient electrical power because they are worshiping the god of Climate Change these days and are imposing their solar panels and wind turbans that barely work on the people. Then they want further to impose electric cars on that much-reduced power grid only to tell people to turn off their air conditioners during 100-degree days to save energy that they artificially imposed on themselves as a sacrifice to their stupid religion. Or the optics of storming Mike Lindell in a Hardee’s drive-thru to attempt to scare Trump supporters with the terror of the administrative state because he is an “election skeptic.” Only a dumb person would look at the 2020 election and not see the obvious election fraud that Democrats and globalists worldwide pushed to implement with Covid restrictions and the strategy of their Great Reset. You’d have to be really stupid to say there was no election fraud. But to insist that people like Mike Lindell accept the liberal premise that 2+2 is five or some other absurdity, the harassment by the FBI against their rival political party continues to escalate as we get closer to the midterms. Who thinks that is a good idea except for very dumb people who obviously don’t know better? Well, the same idiots who signed off on that Biden speech, knowing full well how it would look, how it would sound, but they did it anyway, thinking they were going to get an A on their paper as judged by the media, which is about as dumb as they are. 

The truth of that Biden speech in Philly, where so much election fraud did occur during the 2020 election and is at the center of many investigations as to how nearly a million votes were dumped into the system after election day, taking a massive Trump lead and shaving it away until the brain dead Biden and his corrupt, criminal family was put into the White House by people obviously not part of the American voting system, you’d have to be a complete idiot not to see the problem. And there just aren’t enough dumb people who are willing to buy the stupidity to allow the Democrat Party to seize power in the way they have and not to question it. But because people generally play by the rules, they accepted Biden as the president and looked to the next election for an opportunity to fix things. But the dumb people of liberalism sought to implement all their insane ideas within just a few months of gaining that power. You see, this is why we have the kind of Republic form of government that we do have. Our government isn’t designed to go fast. It is designed to put on the brakes so that government can’t grow too big too fast and destroy free enterprise, which is the real miracle of all economic growth, unleashing the imagination of free people for the benefit of all life on planet earth. Liberals want to micromanage everything so that they aren’t exposed to the genuine stupidity of their lifestyles, and their lack of intellect can be hidden behind the mirage of mass society. In their minds, if everyone is dumb, they will never be exposed for their lack of knowledge. And life would go on happily ever after. 

But that is why everything they do presents a Hellish existence, much like the optics of the Biden speech in Philly came across. The truth is that they thought the Biden speech was going to be a hit, and they were perplexed afterward that it wasn’t. Just as they are in everything they do, from energy policy to currency evaluation. I think Biden started the war in Ukraine because of the United Nations’ goals to defeat nationalism worldwide, but it has only strengthened populist movements everywhere. Russia has the upper hand over Europe and is most poised to crush the Desecrators of Davos, who are a much more significant threat in the world than the Russians are by a lot. Speaking of Russians, we just learned that the FBI had a Russian spy on their payroll, and they used him to advance their phony Russia story to attempt a coup against Trump. Only stupid people would look at all these actions and their involvement on January 6th to try to create bad optics for Trump in the wake of a stolen election, which they helped to steal to put their guy Biden in the White House and think that they’d get away with it because they thought the rest of the world was as dumb as they were. They thought the fear of force would take even smart minds and force them to turn off their intelligence long enough to complete their ruse to the world. Instead, we ended up seeing a bunch of losers who children would laugh at as ridiculous on an old Flintstones rerun. They are dumb as rocks, which might insult the rocks. The goal of all liberalism is to hide their natural stupidity because only dumb people would even associate with such a cast of characters. And to do that, they must maintain the illusion that they are the smartest people in the room but attempt to dumb down the rest of the world literally. But, it hasn’t worked, and most people, voters particularly, see what’s going on, and they aren’t going along with it, which is why there is much panic and a show of force by liberals now. Their Liberal World Order is falling apart. Smart people knew it always would. The dumb people are perplexed now as to why.

The Lakota School Board Has Always Been Political: So why do they want peace now?

Wait a minute, why was Julie Shaffer crying at the Lakota school board meeting on September 12th? After all, she has been one of the most vicious political activists on the school board over the years. She has come after me before, quite viciously. In 2012, after Lakota had suffered its third levy defeat and figured that the only way they would ever win a tax increase from the community was to get rid of me, they came after me in a very public way, not in a softball manner. So since they couldn’t beat me in debate, Julie worked with several school board members and the Cincinnati media to destroy me viciously, which has been well chronicled. For most people, what she and the Lakota school board did to me would have destroyed them, and they didn’t care what it did to my family, life, or reputation in the community. They just wanted me gone, and they took the kill shot, and so did the Cincinnati media, which was hooked in lockstep with them, just as they are today. I have recently watched them do the same thing to Darbi Boddy. After voters elected her, the Lakota school board decided they didn’t want her, so they conspired to get rid of her viciously, with fangs out, and ruthlessly, blowing on the fires of liberal activism throughout the community. They didn’t care one bit what it might do to Darbi, her family, or her reputation. They simply wanted to destroy her in any way possible. 

But then, at the school board meeting’s closing comments, it came time for Julie to provide her’s; fighting back the tears, she said, “that I wish that people could remember that this is more than political theater and that these are people’s lives and future and what they worked for their entire career, and there are more people involved and that these are more than people’s points on a score card.” Well, isn’t that an astonishing statement? Who would have figured that she would say such a thing, given her track record? But then that opens up a whole new can of worms. Suppose she has such a public double standard depending on the political situation. How much bad behavior has she been willing to explain away in the past, knowing what this information tells us about her? I already know the answer, but for you, dear reader, let’s just have a little fun with it. For many years, I have heard of many cover-up stories that the Lakota school board has whitewashed. My hope was that with the current school board candidates that maybe that would change. But as soon as Darbi was elected, the knives came out, and surprisingly, Lynda did not come to her defense like I expected that she would and should. I have not been a fan of public education for many years now. I think teaching kids a progressive, liberal education is a huge waste of money. But I have worked with school board members like Lynda over the years to try and save the system. I have come to the defense of many who found themselves without a voice where the media did not want to tell their stories of bad conduct inflicted upon them to improve the school. I didn’t let my feelings toward people like Julie Shaffer inspire a campaign of complete destruction of the public school system in my district. I’ve held back a lot to make the thing work because I knew there were people like Lynda there trying to make it better. 

But then I heard at that same meeting Lynda gave a strange interpretation of the police report, which is available from the Sheriff’s Department as a public record’s request. Anybody can see it and read it, yet Lynda had a strange interpretation of it. She said, “there are no credible allegations against Mr. Miller. The Sheriff’s Office completed its investigation and found there was ‘no probable cause to initiate criminal charges.'” Well, actually, what the police report says at the end of a description of really extraordinary allegations and a police investigation that seems unreal is that the prosecutor said, “at this time,” as in to mean there wasn’t enough evidence at that point to further criminal charges. It does not “clear” Matt Miller as the media and Lynda said it did. Rather, it eludes to much more, suggesting that there may be more to come. What is implied, knowing some of the inside information from the various witnesses, is that it is hoped that this police report will shut down the investigation unless the public demands more. If the public does, then the prosecutor’s behind would be covered to further the investigation. What is astonishing is that Lynda establishes herself as the judge as to whether or not witnesses are credible or not. So what does that say about the school board that she leads? If someone comes forward with information that the school board doesn’t like, does that mean that the school board doesn’t take it seriously? If the Board is anti-Darbi, anti-Tea Party, anti-Republican, does that mean they will disregard the information if it comes from those sources? I have known Lynda O’Conner for a fifth of my life and think of her as a smart woman. A well-intentioned woman. These statements by her seem strange, not her. But then again, maybe the only reason I’ve ever had a relationship with her was for her to keep her enemies close. Nothing would surprise me. Like I say, always judge people based on what they do, not what they say. 

The hypocrisy of it all is that, on the one hand, the school board is all about politics so long as they are destroying the people they don’t want around. But, they will rally to their own people even if those people are guilty as can be, which everyone should find alarming. This isn’t some conspiracy theory; we see this publicly at school board meetings. Compare the police report with what the Board said at the meeting, and everything becomes very clear. Matt Miller created his own problems. Yes, people have a problem with his behavior and are making their opposition known. But people like Julie Shaffer and her school board accomplices set the ground rules for bloodthirsty politics long ago. They take public money to function, and I wouldn’t say I like paying it for the garbage we get from each graduating class. Lynda knows how I felt, but we still worked together to assemble a nice school board that represented the public more than we had. I am surprised that she turned on Darbi as she did. I was also surprised to hear her say the things she did at the latest school board meeting. But then again, maybe not. You never really find out about people until you go through the pressure cooker with them. If Matt hadn’t done what he did to Darbi with the help of the Board led by Lynda and people like Julie to destroy her completely, then the witnesses against Matt Miller would have probably never had the strength to speak out for themselves and go public with the information that has the Lakota superintendent in so much trouble now. He did it to himself. People are only willing to take so much, and because of what those antagonists did at Lakota toward conservatives in the community, over a long period of time, they have asked for what is happening now. And if Lynda doesn’t think the person who was married to Matt, and her many friends wasn’t a credible witness even after the police did their interviews, maybe she is having trouble with definitions these days, just as she obviously has with the police report.

Democrats Need to be Destroyed: Compromising with evil isn’t an option, not at Lakota, not in Washington DC nor in Davos

Here is the basic assumption, a warning shot across the bow to all who still hope and pray that liberalism in any form will make a final stand and win out the day. The best thing that can happen in the United States is that the Democrat Party is completely destroyed and that the two-party system that emerges in their ashes is a split between the conservatives, the RINOs on the one hand, and the MAGA Republicans on the other. That is where most of the political sentiment is in America and the true indicator of where the public wants things. Now, the Liberal World Order, the media, the education institutions, the corporate alliances, and all like-minded figureheads who have learned to game that Liberal World Order for their own benefit are in a panic because they see it turning to dust on the nightly news. On Fox News, for instance, there are pleas from moderate Democrats to return to a bipartisan sentiment where both sides can work together for the “good of the people.” What is missed in these discussions is whether that other side should even exist. Democrats do not represent American values and ideas. They are Marxists and anti-American in their intentions. They work against the Constitution and only seem to like it when they want to use free speech or some other right to undo everything that America is. Liberals don’t even belong on the political spectrum of America. They are more at home in Europe, where they originated from. They are the political party of globalism and have built all their political platforms around it. They try to hide that fact behind an American flag hoping that nobody sees what they are doing. But we live in a country where the FBI raided Mike Lindell, the MyPillow guy, and took his cell phone for no reason other than harassment. The same organization that just raided a former president’s home had a hired Russian spy on the payroll to set up that presidential administration to suppress the populist political movement that was gaining steam to preserve this dying Liberal World Order out of desperation. 

But locally, you can see it even sharper, this panic from Democrats who hope they can hide behind a complicit media and ride their evil deeds of sin and mayhem into a horizon of darkness that only the Devil would find sanctimonious. You could hear it at the Lakota school board meeting on September 12th, 2022. Are we a Christian nation? Yes, we are. We are the nation built from the values of the Ten Commandments brought down out of Mt. Sinai and given to a people that started several major religions, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim, which most of the world considers themselves to be. Other factions at work want to erase all that and resurrect religious perspective as a global religion centered on oriental ideas, which is what Climate Change is all about. But in essence, when people at the school board tried to use separation of church and state to argue that public schools should be havens of evil, secular in nature, the only people nodding their heads apparently were small Facebook groups like the Conservatives for Lakota who were nodding in the affirmative. Every community has people like this, especially attached to public schools, who want to believe, like Joe Manchin and Mitch McConnel, that all sides can come together and work in a bipartisan way for the good of all. But they forget that one of those sides represents sheer evil, the destruction of America, and the ability to sin infinitely, often, and without recourse. And real conservative people aren’t signing up for that no matter how much Fox News begs for people to do so, or the FBI raids people’s homes to scare them into submission, or Skippy from Conservatives for Lakota pleads online to his fellow liberal friends that the Matt Miller trouble at the superintendent position is just a political situation that doesn’t involve the safety of kids. 

Some dude named Skippy, or some name like that from the Conservatives for Lakota Facebook group, has the ear of the board, and they think they are, as they advertise, “conservative.” Still, I just learned about their group recently due to the trouble at Lakota, and people showed me the kinds of things that those people said. It’s clear why school board members think they represent conservative opinions if they only look at the type of people who attend school board meetings and generally support the concept of public schools. If school boards are listening to Skippy and his friends, then, of course, they are going to be shocked when they find out that a majority of the residents of Lakota still support the new school board member Darbi Boddy; they consider themselves Christians fighting to preserve a Christian nation and they are angry at all liberal attempts to destroy the world they live in, whether the topic is education, taxes, globalism, fiscal policy, and the basic concept of family building. I go to a lot of GOP events, and I meet all kinds of people. And I can’t say I’ve seen any of these Conservatives for Lakota anywhere. From what I read of their Facebook musings, they are RINOs at best, likely just Democrats in disguise, and the school board hopes that the mask will remain because they all tend toward liberalism in some way or another. The dispute on the Lakota school board presently at its essence is that the community is much more conservative than any of the school board members and that Darbi Boddy is the only member who has fully embraced that representation, which Democrats and RINOs hate with everything they have in them. They don’t even want to know that people who would support school board members like Darbi exist, and when she’s sitting there with a seat at the table, it terrifies them, just like Trump terrified the Liberal World Order when he was in the White House, and still has political power over the Republican Party in America. And in that microcosm of local politics, we see the national macrocosm that is unfolding on the world stage, where populism is defeating liberalism everywhere, and the mechanisms of authority are desperately trying to intimidate their existence into the future, if only by a day or two. 

The argument over Matt Miller’s social life isn’t so much as to whether children are in danger or not, which is very much a thing of its own. The real debate is whether or not his liberal lifestyle is one that the true Christian conservatives of Lakota can put up with. In the past, a compromise was expected, but people have grown tired of compromising with the Devil and have in mind to defeat evil in a Biblical sense. They are tired of evil in their lives and want to fight back politically or more if needed. They see it on the national, international, then local levels.   They may not be able to do much about evil in Europe or the Desecrators of Davos. Remember, the number one book in the country right now is Alex Jones’ The Great Reset, who is on his second harassment trial in the same number of months trying hard to destroy him and his company Infowars. The New York Times actually has tried to suppress that information from their Best Seller’s list because they want more than anything to return to that world of Skippy and the Conservatives for Lakota RINO position, or the Joe Manchin, Rob Portman “work together” RINOs on the Hill are trying to get back to. But many people, I would say most conservative Republicans, are done with the compromises with evil and want to fight back. They don’t want school superintendents who do not uphold Christian moral standards. They do not want to empower evil in politics with happy talk and handshakes. And they are not about to put up with abuses of authority within the FBI or the local sheriff who are willing to use force to punish political rivals and destroy populism if they can and use their badge to fight for the Liberal World Order and its preservation. Those things are all on the chopping block now that people can see who is doing what, to whom, and for what reasons. And if evil is attached to the judgment from the perspective of a very Christian nation, then a fight is bound to happen. And singing campfire songs of unity and hoping things will return to how they were isn’t in the future.

Should You Attend School Board Meetings: The Lakota school’s trouble is why “yes” is the only answer

I know the school board meetings are boring and cumbersome with regulations. The thing I have never liked about the one we have in my district of Lakota is that you only get 3 minutes to talk, and usually, my political enemies are the ones who sit as the judge and jury as to what gets said and to what degree. If you go outside of their accepted limits, they call the police on you to shut you down. Well, that doesn’t work for me; I’m accustomed to being in charge everywhere I go on every topic, and yielding that control over to a political rival on the school board is not something I consider smart. But I have attended plenty of school board meetings and spoken at them when needed. I understand why more conservatives don’t attend school board meetings, yet liberals do. I simply don’t have the time to give to three hours of just doing that one thing while a heavily rule-compliant school board meanders on with loathsome rules and regulations. I’m used to doing three or four things simultaneously from sun up to beyond sundown, so it’s difficult to slow down enough to attend a school board meeting that you know will not affect things at all. Nothing you do at a school board meeting will change a thing that is going on at the school. School board meetings are designed just like elections to make people feel like they have input into how things work in public schools. Yet, they are simply consensus-building exercises meant to bring people over into the way of thinking of a liberal board of education by grinding people down with the sheer boredom of it all. 

The situation has been so bad that I decided over a decade ago to create my own media format to talk about school board business and, in general, politics and current events that weren’t being covered by the media we have had. I always attended school board meetings; I also did a lot of radio and television, interviewed, and wrote for newspapers. In my early days of doing public school work, it became obvious to me that the entire argument that would solve many of the problems was not on the scale of the discussion. For instance, the part A of an argument was set at the wrong point, and part B never went far enough. So I stopped doing media and writing for other publications and instead created this blog site as its own mass media source. Since then, it has had millions and millions of visitors who know they can get more of the news than is typically talked about and that they can send me information that will actually get attention as opposed to trying to force information through the public education filter that everyone can clearly see is a scam. But even with my own thing, I still occasionally attend school board meetings and try to make the system work, even knowing in the back of my mind that it’s probably a useless enterprise. I do that so that nobody can say that I didn’t try. I do try; I just have changed over time to create my own media because I couldn’t trust the established media or the school board members ever to do the right thing. 

The Lakota school board meeting in September 2022 was OK. Some of the controversial superintendent issue elements were discussed, but as usual, a lid was put over the whole event in the standard way that occurs in all government schools. But I would say that what happened was worth the effort because community members did get to voice their opinion, even if the school board’s goal was to drown out the whispers through procedural bureaucracy, which often hides all the bad behavior that so many people are concerned with. Usually, the only people who go to the school board meetings are liberals who don’t have anything else to do anyway. They don’t mind sitting around and wasting time because they like to complain, and those meetings are designed for them to do so. And to get their complaints recorded by someone. They are like those people who carve their names into some wood at a popular tourist destination to show that they were there. The school board meetings give them a voice and a sense of purpose in life, and they are happy to stay asleep so long as they can complain about what they see and feel. Conservatives aren’t like that. They are usually busy with something, so they don’t have the time to deal with that level of nonsense. Suppose they think the school board is a waste of time, which they are designed to be by the OSBA (Ohio School Board Association). In that case, naturally, they will stay home and do something else, yielding everything to the crybaby liberals. 

But it doesn’t have to be that way.   The Lakota school board meeting on September 12th is a good example; there were enough people there to at least get the media’s attention. It was interesting to see how the board responded to evidence that I had already seen and what they considered “credible” or “relevant.” It was also interesting to hear their interpretation of the police report, which they say “cleared” the Lakota superintendent of wrongdoing. I’ve read the same report, and it hardly does that. But without the school board meeting and pressure from the conservative community in the school district, much of this would just be shoved under the rug as it always has. I have watched stories that were undoubtedly in the public interest be crushed by liberal school boards for years, which, as I have alluded to, managed alternative media sources that would dig into a story more than traditional media does, which essentially takes their complete dialogue straight from official public comments because they are too lazy to do any further investigation. This is undoubtedly the case with Lakota, and the people up to no good expect lazy reporting and phony legal protections to conceal bad behavior that taxpayers should know about. Notice how the John Gray story from Goshen where the school board president just disappeared off the news. Apparently, it wasn’t illegal to conspire to meet an 11-year-old girl for a naked massage so long as it hadn’t happened yet. School boards have evolved into cesspools of cover-ups because only liberals attend the meetings. But maybe we should change that. I am happy that enough people showed up at Lakota’s meeting to get some attention and apply pressure where it needed to be applied. Otherwise, bad things do happen a lot. And ultimately, kids do count on us to give them a good world to live in, including their public education environment. You can’t just trust that everyone will behave. You sometimes must look at them in the face and make them answer your questions, even though many rules are designed to protect them from the taxpayer. It drives me nuts too, but it’s worth doing. 

In saying all that, I continue to be very proud of the good work that Darbi Boddy is doing as a Lakota school board member. I think we now see why they hate her so much. To answer the questions of the rest of the board, who are very liberal and have been working very hard to get rid of Darbi. Wasn’t it political for the Lakota superintendent to try to push Darbi to resign over much less charges? Who started that fight? Hmmm………maybe think about that for the future. Because I am very much looking forward to the next election where we can get more school board members like Darbi elected and really make these meetings more constructive. Eventually, we’ll publish all the evidence, but right now, it’s more interesting to see how various people handle the evidence, and public judgment later likely won’t be as kind as people are now–because they haven’t seen it yet.
