Another Example of How Government is More Dangerous Than Mass Shooters: Without guns, the American government would have already used the “China Model” to rule over all of society

We’ve been through this before with all these mass shootings. This Walmart shooting in Virginia recently, where an overnight lead person named Andre Bling opened fire on the same workers that worked for him, killing six and injuring several others, isn’t unusual these days. But it’s not a question of gun control, as the Biden administration would like, nor the elements of our intelligence community who work for the Liberal World Order would want you to believe. There is far too much evidence that through various means, certain types of people can be pushed psychologically into committing violent acts by third parties, and we have seen that this Biden administration and its structural support of globalism will do anything to gain power and to hold it, including election fraud. Or manufacturing deadly viruses and exploiting their release to control mass populations. It’s not even worth a debate at this point because they have been caught in the act too many times over the last five years to deny it. I would always point to the Las Vegas shooter, one of the biggest mass shootings on record that killed many people in one of America’s most reckless and visited tourist spots. Notice how there are no documentaries on the shooter; his memory just went away along with the Jeffery Epstein jail cell cameras during his “suicide.” The government talks about disinformation and their obsession with the “China Model” are not going to work in the United States, and that panic is starting to set in with some of these big government globalist groups. Therefore it’s not unusual that people like this shooter, Andre Bling, at the ripe age of 31, we’re talking about government dishonesty. More and more people are because the government has proven itself to be far more dangerous than some of these young people who crack under the pressure of modern expectations and commit mass shootings, whether they were pushed into it by some clandestine government agency hungry for news stories in their favor, or whether or not people can manage their personal concerns. Once the smoke clears on the subject, every mass shooting is sad. But a society without guns is even worse because what we know now, which we didn’t admit to ourselves prior to President Trump becoming president, is that the government is far more dangerous than the potential for mass shooters.

The solution I always say to mass shootings is for more people to carry. There should have been armed people in the breakroom to shoot Andre Bling when he opened fire. Nobody should be a sitting duck anywhere, at any time. In a free society, gun ownership and Constitutional carry are critical to its maintenance. This notion that there is a government control solution to any episodes of violence is ridiculous. There are no law enforcement officials in existence that can take away the intent of a criminal to do harm. And the government simply cannot be trusted with the safety of its citizens. The best way to deal with the corruption of government, which this shooter was concerned with, which contributed to his desperate state, is to keep it small and decentralized. To take away their monopoly power over social maintenance. We need government for critical things, but it should not be so big that it can control our very lives. Finding that balance has been an interesting bit of social history, and without question, the modern ratio is way too high. Government to be less corrupt, must be dramatically scaled back, and that doesn’t mean adding more government workers to the payroll to prevent mass shootings. Too often, we find that those police officers and armed security do not engage a threat in the way we expect, and people still end up getting killed when a shooter decides to snap and open fire on mass society who are innocently minding their own business. I carry a gun every day, everywhere I go, and I participate with a lot of people who are gun owners. In my community, there are over 400,000 people, most of whom own and carry many guns. And nobody shoots each other.

Guns themselves are not dangerous; people are dangerous, especially when they have bad ideas. It used to be that we recruited police and security from the military, where our government would train people to be reliable killers under pressure to prepare for wartime engagement perpetually. But this new military is more interested in transvestite rights, gays showering together, and how many women they can train alongside the men than in actually preparing people to deal with pressure under difficulty and put their own lives on the line when threats matter most. So naturally, we are seeing significant failures in our nation’s security and defense both with foreign threats and domestically. We are not making tough people anymore due to government policy. In the process, we are creating millions of potential young people who can snap at any moment and become tomorrow’s mass killers. The best solution to that is less government and more personal responsibility to diffuse mass shootings wherever they occur. Whether it’s in the classroom, or as a person sitting in a Walmart breakroom, wherever lots of people gather, there is always the potential that one or two of them will be prone to psychological distress and find themselves the next mass shooter. The liberal approach is to eliminate the guns themselves and to have gun control which the crooked Biden administration immediately tried to implement. But that is giving the government power it doesn’t deserve and obviously can’t handle, and it is not a solution worth consideration in any way.

If not for private gun ownership, the government, which is far more dangerous than any mass shooter, would have already made its move toward the China Model of complete control over society. We see in Brazil mass protests of millions of people because of the recent election where their presidential pick was stolen from them. In China, we see the same mass protests in the big cities, like Shanghai, where the government is trying to impose phony Covid lockdowns to get political control of their mass population. In hindsight, they tried the same thing here, and people obeyed for the first few months. But because of gun ownership, the government knew it could not go door to door for enforcement, which forced the courts and legislators to rely on the Constitution for an answer to the problem, for which there wasn’t a big government solution to be found, nor should there have been. The Covid push was an attempt by the world’s governments and their financiers in the World Economic Forum to commit a Great Reset behind the chaos, which is the real threat to society. Not some young person who can’t handle the pressures of life and committed violence against his peers in a moment of crisis. The solution would have been for Walmart to have an open carry policy that would have stopped the kid from shooting as soon as he showed “intent.” Many fewer people would have been killed and injured. But even worse than that potential crisis is the goals of government that have demonstrated its intent, which is to remove guns from society so that they can get administrative control over it and take Americans to places they don’t want to go on the chessboard of globalism. Instead, I’d recommend, in reaction to that government intent, that you buy a new gun today and let them know you are buying it. Because that is a vote, they can’t steal from you, and it allows the real bad guys no that domination of America won’t be easy and done behind the desk of some pinhead. But people can defend themselves from the threats of violence resulting from government policy and are free to live their lives despite the failures of big government and its minions of ignorance, malice, and doom.

It’s All About Intent: Throwing stones is important to a civil society, so is living without sin as much as possible

After years of covering these public education issues, I arrived at my saturation point long ago. I like to think about positive things, and government schools do very little that is good in the world. If you are a person who still thinks there is some benefit to them, you likely need to redefine what you consider good. And that has certainly been my thought about this latest issue in Lakota schools, the district where I live, where the superintendent has gotten himself into all kinds of trouble due to a failed marriage that has certainly leaked out of the bedroom and into his very public position as a school superintendent. I have wanted to be wrong about him and the case in general. There are lots of people who are concerned about the case, who have kids going to the school, and due to the nature of the accusations that were mentioned against Matt Miller, the person who identified himself as a public figure on his Facebook page, he has brought the taxpayers quite a list of problems that he could have easily have avoided if only he took more caution in his personal affairs. The result has been a disgusting exhibition of bad judgment and reckless disregard for basic decency. Unfortunately, the police report is in, and it didn’t say that the evidence that told this horrible story wasn’t discredited. The sexual deviancy was true. But at this time, they didn’t have enough evidence to move forward with the criminal part of the story, which is what has concerned me the most.

The trouble I have with it all is that if the evidence hasn’t been discredited from its source, in this case, an ex-wife, then that means it could be corresponded with cell phone data that the cell phone carrier could provide, and at this point, there is very little will to perform that task. Based on what I know of the case after talking to lawyers, police officials, and several politicians, the reason is that this has major political ramifications that would be too much for everyone involved. Nobody wants to subject themselves to that level of pain. I would add that all this evidence is available upon a document request, including the text messages. At this time, to get that evidence, I would refer you to inquire about it through the official channels of the Lakota school board. There is a meeting on 9.12.22 where these questions could be asked, and I’d suggest that be the place to get answers to your questions. The media knows all about this story and have been sitting on it for many of the same reasons described. The school board has been waiting for this police report, and now they have it. So using the official channels of communication is the way to perform these inquiries. 

What bothers me most about this case is the behavior of the surrounding cast of characters. I always think more information is better than not having enough. But I asked a school board member three years ago specifically about Matt Miller’s sexual relationships because I had noticed a change in him over time. He had looked a lot more disheveled in recent years, to the point where when I shook his hand in public events, he was noticeably different. So I asked about it because there was a lot about him to be suspicious about regarding his personal behavior, outside of the role he performed for the school as a superintendent. And yes, it’s the public business when taxpayers pay him $200K per year. A public role expects that he will maintain a positive public profile, and he clearly was showing signs of something going wrong in his life. I thought it might be sexual in nature or maybe substance abuse. Things happen to people, but I remember specifically asking about it because it was a noticeable change. Now that I have seen the contents of the divorce records, the Craigslist ads, and the revelations of pillow talk between him and his wife at the time, it all makes sense. And I hate to say it, but I was very right about it. 

Knowing all this about himself, it is bewildering why he went after the new school board member Darbi Boddy the way he did because the hypocrisy of it is what provoked his ex-wife to go public with the contents of their divorce. She saw a pattern of behavior that reminded her of their marriage, and she thought it was unfair treatment toward Darbi. Darbi didn’t seek out the information; the information came out as a result of Matt Miller going after Darbi Boddy over the trespass charge he leveled against her. It bothered the ex-wife, so she sought out people who would tell her story. When I saw the contents of this information, I thought it was on the serious side and that the police needed to be involved, and that is how things have arrived where they are now. Now that the police have done their work, up to the current status, my hopes of all this being just political or inflammatory have been abandoned. So for all those who wanted to believe that it’s all hearsay, out of convenience for what the school system does for the community, or to protect whatever perceived value there was in it, the facts are the facts. They are available as public documents, and you can see them for yourself. There has already been a lot talked about it on social media. Much of the worst of it has been discussed on Facebook. It bothers me so much that I am simply telling people to get that information from the school board. The superintendent is their employee, and he’s their problem. They had an opportunity to get rid of him a few years ago when they obviously knew a lot of this bad behavior but determined that he could still perform his job in a public capacity. Yet that turned out not to be the case because if these kinds of things are out there, it limits his ability to manage anything because the ghosts come out of the closet when provoked. 

The behavior of so many people has been disappointing; in many cases, people I know and have known well. This problem occurs when compromised people have to pass moral judgments. I would say that this is why it’s good to live a clean life. Because morally, you may be called upon to make decisions that either make society better or worse. And if you get caught trying to explain away bad behavior because you are also guilty of the same kind of stuff, then you will not be able to call balls and strikes when it’s required of you. Even if you want to participate in “adult” behavior, you probably shouldn’t because when the time comes like this and moral opinions are essential to protecting children and taxpayer dollars; you won’t be so equipped. And that is obviously part of the anger at new school board members like Darbi Boddy and others who the ex-wife sought out to tell her story due to the public spectacle the superintendent blew out of proportion for purely political reasons. The political opponents to the board, the Tea Party conservatives, and the Holy Rollers of evangelical sentiment are throwing stones because they are not sinning. When the assumption is that nobody should pass judgment if they are not without sin, well, not everyone is doing the kinds of things that Matt Miller and his wife were up to sexually. And when it comes to sexual addiction or lifestyles that have an unhealthy relationship to sex, it’s a bottomless pit where fantasies migrate over into the intent to do something terrible outside the bedroom. And in many legal circumstances, not those as politically charged as this case, “intent” is all that is required.

Government Schools are All About the Employees: The kids are used as a means to expand easy jobs and administrative nonsense

Everyone wants to know what’s going on with Lakota schools and why there has not been any mainstream news regarding the very serious allegation against the public school administration. Given the nature of the offense, as indicated in the official police report from the Butler County Sheriff’s Department, many were expecting at least an arrest or a leave of absence. But there has been nothing but an acknowledgment of documents, one from the police indicating that on August 8th, 2022, the complainant responded to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office to report that she had received and compiled information from a third party of potential criminal wrongdoing by the suspect regarding juveniles. Then there is a short email from the president of the Lakota School Board speaking on behalf of the entire Board, saying, ” Ms. (former candidate for Lakota school board), The Board has reviewed your email and attachments. The safety and security of the district’s students is the Board’s highest priority. As noted in your email, this issue has already been escalated to law enforcement and is now in the capable hands of the Butler County Sheriff’s Office. When the Sheriff’s Office concludes its investigation, the Board will review its findings and determine if any further action is warranted. On behalf of the Board. ”  I thought all that pretty interesting, especially after the press conference Sheriff Jones held recently stating that he was investigating wrongdoing in the direction of Ohio Representative Thomas Hall, because years ago, when he was a trustee for Madison Township, there were questions as to whether or not he recused himself on Fire Department matters since his father was the Fire Chief. As discussed before, Thomas sought legal advice on when to recuse himself and when not to, so he was clean. But, with a Sheriff talking tough like that, you would think that a Lakota school administrator with an ex-wife putting in writing some really charged content would inspire more action on behalf of the “safety” of all. But after a month of tranquil activity on the matter from the administrative perspective, there hasn’t been anything to satisfy people’s fears.

I was wondering myself, knowing all the characters involved. When I first saw the material, I could have published it and beat the rest of the media to a really salacious story. But I was more concerned about the criminal side of the story and wanted to know how much some of the people in charge cared about what was happening in the school. Unfortunately, we have our answer, and it’s one I thought we would have from the beginning. Over the years, I have witnessed too many of these stories to think anything else. But I thought it was worth a try. We trusted the system and hoped for a reasonable outcome. With a case like this, it would be expected to have at least a note from the Board to the parents, much like they have on other things in the past. I remember when someone left a threatening note in a bathroom during a levy campaign, and a lot of drama was made about it. Lakota always seems to send home notes to the parents, letting them know when something is wrong and that the administration is all over the issue so they won’t have to worry. But on this issue, they have been oddly silent. They might say that it’s purely political, the entire escapade. But then again, what hasn’t been political? The moment that new school board member Darbi Boddy was voted in as a new school board member, many board members and the administration have been trying to remove her in any technical way they could, using every excuse possible to make a media story out of her, to put pressure on her to resign. So why wouldn’t there be political opposition flowing in the opposite direction? They should expect it; they created that atmosphere. 

The truth is that all public schools, Lakota being just one of them, are all about filling the needs of the employees. They could care less about the kids involved. This is the case today, and it has been the case over the many decades that I have been involved in these public school issues. Government schools like Lakota use children as a playground for the adults, making these schools some of the largest employers in the region. Yet they expect to never get in trouble for bad behavior. If what was happening at Lakota were happening at any large corporation, there would be, at a bare minimum, paid administrative leave while everyone sorted out the matter. There would be press conferences updating the taxpayers on what was being done to investigate the matter and assuring the public that good people were doing good work. I wanted to think differently of Lakota, knowing some people the way I do. I really didn’t think they would be willing to put up with bad behavior when they saw it and knew about it. Even if it was just the remnants of a bad marriage, when a personal life starts to impact the public life of someone, that is a factor in work performance that can be very negative. But there was just a case the other night where a person was caught regionally just downloading child porn, and the police were all over them with arrests and significant news coverage. Why, with this case, did everyone suddenly want to show a benefit of the doubt toward the evidence presented, even as crazy as much of that evidence has been? 

A Message from Lakota Local Schools May 5, 2022

Dear Lakota Staff, Parents and Guardians, The end of the school year is a time to celebrate our students and staff and all that we have achieved since August. This year, we have even more to celebrate as we have been able to lift our COVID protocols and return to a much more normal school experience for our students. It is unfortunate that, over recent weeks, instead of this being our focus, district leaders have been forced to respond to baseless allegations and escalating threatening behavior by an elected member of our school board.As a result of a school board member’s blatant disregard for policy and procedures that are in place to help ensure the safety of our students and staff and a productive learning environment, this morning, Lakota Local Schools was forced to issue a notice of trespassing to Mrs. Darbi Boddy. As such, Mrs. Boddy will no longer be allowed on district property without prior authorization and unless invited for official Board business.Yesterday morning, Mrs. Boddy violated Board Policy and Administrative Guidelines 9150 by visiting two schools without first notifying the building principal – a requirement of all visitors to our schools. Entering through the main offices, she then proceeded to ignore staff requests to remain there until the principals met her. Instead, she left the offices and proceeded to walk the hallways, violating safety protocols and causing a disruption in learning at both Lakota East High School and Liberty Early Childhood School. While some may question why such a seemingly steep action was taken against Mrs. Boddy, let me explain. We welcome our parents into our schools; we welcome our community into our schools; and we certainly welcome our school board members into our schools – as long as they follow safety procedures and policy. These are not difficult. They involve alerting building administrators of the interest in visiting and setting up a time that is convenient for all involved. Yesterday, this did not happen. This is also not the first time that Mrs. Boddy has ignored board policy, nor is it the first time she has disrupted learning in our schools. Our decision was not made lightly and was done in consultation with law enforcement. It is my hope that by sharing this information with you, I am able to stop rumors from circulating and reassure you of our commitment to safety. The safety of our students and staff is always my first priority and a responsibility I take very seriously. I will do everything I can to ensure that our students and staff feel safe, welcome and included when they walk through our doors.

Sincerely,

Matthew J. Miller
​​​​​​​Superintendent

Of course, we all know the answer, which is the painful part. Many people knew the answer from the beginning but didn’t want to believe it. I was very skeptical about everything. As things have transpired over the last month, it became an apparent human resource problem without consistent standards, which is a tremendous management problem. I didn’t care much about Lakota at the start of this process. My hope was that by electing better school board members, the proper management of the district’s largest government school might improve. I have seen complaints about her since Darbi Boddy was elected and sworn in because she’s a conservative. It has become grossly apparent that the only thing the teachers and administrators care about at Lakota is not the kids but their easy jobs with high pay rates. As bad as the accusations are in the police report, I know that there is far worse going on behind the scenes that nobody is even talking about because they are either scared or don’t trust anybody to say anything. Not even the police. With the kind of threats that have been tossed at this whistleblower occurs, the message is clear, don’t mess with the breadbasket and playground of the adults who work at the school. The community and the children of the community are there to serve them and them only. That’s not what they say, of course. But that’s the message they convey. To say I’m disappointed would be a misplaced description. I had optimistic hope that I might be wrong. Government schools are all about politics, liberal politics at that, and they waste money on a garbage product while they treat the place like their personal Tinder app. And the way the public employees behave is reprehensible. But why wouldn’t they be when management allows them to behave that way?

The Elephant in the Room: Why the new ‘Top Gun’ movie is so successful and what it means to ESG scores in corporate America

I have always looked at box office results as a kind of vote for what the temperature of the political world truly is. As we know now, elections are often rigged, especially regarding the digital machines and ballot stuffing efforts that have been common in big American cities for years. So political votes don’t often reflect what people really desire culturally. But when a person is willing to get out of their chair and go out into a darkened theater and share a movie experience with perfect strangers, which is a discomfort of its own, the kinds of choices people make reflect a lot about their true character. So I have always looked toward box office numbers to understand what’s happening worldwide and the kinds of mythologies the human race responds to. Knowing all that, I was not surprised that Top Gun: Maverick did well at the box office; it looks like it will come in over 1.2 billion dollars for the summer of 2022. It has been remarkably strong for what I consider a typical 80s movie. I grew up in the 80s, so I remember when there was a movie like Top Gun coming out every weekend, and then when you got back in the car to drive home, there was a new top 40 hit on the radio. We had a thriving culture back then mainly because Ronald Reagan, as an actor, knew how to sell America to America, and people felt good about their country. Hollywood rushed to make movies that appealed to them, which was reflected in the movie-making industry. 

Obviously, I loved the new Top Gun movie, but as I said, I don’t think the film is a technological masterpiece. It will likely win some awards because the kind of people who pursued careers in movie making are happy that finally there is a movie out there that reflects why they got into the business in the first place, the way Hollywood used to make movies before all the woke ESG rules took over and ruined everything for everybody. While Top Gun has been doing well, another film franchise from Disney, Thor: Love and Thunder, came out over a similar summer season release. It died on the vine by the second weekend because it embraced all the woke ESG garbage injected into corporate America, and the voting movie audience decided they didn’t want any of it. For a film with big intentions to gain a billion dollars at the box office from a global audience, Thor: Love and Thunder quickly fell out of favor, while Top Gun: Maverick continued to be in the top 10 even after two months in theaters. Because of this behavior, there is a massive elephant in the room to talk about that I have heard nobody in the commentary business from entertainment or politics nail down, which is worth discussing because of what it means. What we see with movie audiences is a total rejection of the globalist push for ESG values that will undoubtedly be reflected in society in general, and what has been happening in the movie business will ultimately be reflected in society in general, with restaurants, business commerce, and populist politics. The only way the ESG system was ever going to work was to take away all people’s options for what they really wanted. Top Gun: Maverick shows just how successful breaking the ESG formula can be for anybody who dares to, and now that people have seen the benefits, the ESG attempts will fail miserably.

Considering that Top Gun: Maverick was entirely filmed before Covid came along to destroy its original release date for the summer of 2020, the film was not a conscious effort to push back against the globalist trends toward ESG. It was able to get funding because it had been in the works for many years and had Tom Cruise attached to it, so the movie got made. But the global sabotage with Covid, as I said in the beginning, was more of an attack against American culture in every way and the intent was to destroy American capitalism. Small businesses were meant to be destroyed. Amusement parks bankrupted. And the American film industry was targeted to be choked off, even though the political lefties in Hollywood were kissing the ring of the globalists most aggressively. Those market sectors were intended to be destroyed before the year of 2020 ran out, which was the goal of the World Economic Forum members behind the Covid virus, using China to be the face of the disruption. The world was going to have a Great Reset, and America would come out of it under the fold of global socialism run by health agencies controlled by the United Nations, and that was the end of the story. Paramount Pictures was shrewd to wait out the storm and hold Top Gun: Maverick for another two years to hope the American movie industry would survive and that theater owners would not all go bankrupt. Along the way, Paramount listened to its potential audience, and they decided to tweak the film toward a domestic market and ignore China completely, which many considered to be suicidal. But once the movie was released and movie theaters finally opened into something resembling normal, great things happened, and people were hungry for a non-woke movie without ESG goal posts that told a pro-American story that people could feel good about. And the rest is history.

It’s not that Top Gun: Maverick is a great movie. But it offers a non-ESG story that people are starving for, and they have voted with their feet. There are so many other options now with streaming services that people could easily have just stayed home and watched hundreds of other options. So it says something any time people are willing to go to the theater to see a movie of any kind. But what we are seeing happening with this particular movie is that people are voting against the ESG world that is being imposed on them, and the first real offering of American patriotism since President Trump was removed from office through political upheavals is the true sentiment of the voting public. You can’t fake personal choice. Ballot stuffing and other forms of fraud can manipulate results to look like more people than really do support progressive causes. But the tickets bought for a darkened theater in direct competition with other offerings, like Thor: Love and Thunder, show the true sentiment of the public when choice is the deciding factor. With most movies these days being produced for a global audience, especially from Disney, it had been considered suicide to focus on a domestic release, which is what Top Gun: Maverick boldly did. And the result was that the world came to the doorstep of the movie because they wanted to experience American life with their movie purchase. Not to see the same old ESG political nonsense that all the other films were offering, the same homosexual propaganda, the soft stories without defined heroes, and the noticeable lack of patriotism that was clearly part of the plan for a post-Covid world. Top Gun: Maverick broke all the rules and returned to what worked for years. And because of that success, many other industries and political movements will follow.

Lakota is Teaching Children to be Street Walkers: Darbi Boddy pulls back the veil to reveal what has been hidden from the public, thanks to Channel 5 News

I suppose we should thank Channel 5 news in Cincinnati and the attempts by Karin Johnson to help the mad moms of Lakota build a case against the new school board member, Darbi Boddy, for showing us something we did not previously know. We keep hearing from the actual people committing all the vile acts in Lakota about how innocent they are, how CRT isn’t being taught and how mean Darbi Boddy is and how several parents are circulating a petition to get Darbi removed, even though the voters just picked her to do the job she has been doing. Darbi represents a large portion of the Lakota school district just north of Cincinnati, Ohio. She has been asking many questions, mainly about what kids are being taught and how radicalized it is toward progressive political goals that are nationwide and very dangerous to a healthy society. Darbi didn’t believe the people who were saying there was no CRT in Lakota and that the transexual agenda wasn’t a problem. So Darbi showed up at a couple of Lakota’s schools unannounced and took some pictures. This outraged parents, so they pulled security footage of where Darbi went, and Karin Johnson from Channel 5 put some of the results up on a television report. In one of the clips, they are accusing Darbi of taking a picture of a student, even though she said she didn’t take any pictures of any of the kids. Based on what was shown, it’s an irrelevant point. The student that Darbi took notice of in the hallways and that the mother of the Karin Johnson news report pulled back the veil just enough to give voters a real glimpse into what is really going on at Lakota, away from the sustained eyes of the public and hidden behind polite theatrics at school board meetings. We saw in the video a young girl dressed essentially as a street walker on par with some of the worst in Washington D.C.’s K-Street.  And it shows that Lakota has some big problems.

To hide the issue, the mad moms, the complicit administrators, and the rival school board members, the fuel behind the Channel 5 continued story, felt Darbi shouldn’t have been there. She didn’t have “permission” to visit the school in such an unofficial capacity. Yet legally, Darbi Boddy was elected to do exactly what she has been doing, so the debate is over technique, and as I say all the time to everyone, the rules are not meant for winners. The losers write rules to protect them from the winners in life. And rules are often used to conceal crimes, not reveal them. The administrators and members of the teacher’s union do not want management just showing up unannounced. So they have all kinds of unwritten rules to protect them from judgment. But if you really want to know what’s happening somewhere, especially where you are expected to manage the employee resources, you need to show up when they least expect it and see things for yourself. Within that framework, Darbi considers such an investigation “official business.” The school board might think they need a vote from the board to do such things, but it’s behind that kind of bureaucracy that the real crimes get committed. So I think Darbi is right to show up unannounced to take some pictures and stir things up a bit. Because if she hadn’t, we wouldn’t be talking about this story in the middle of summer 2022 when very few people are thinking about public school business. 

There has been a lot of frustration about CRT at Lakota and across the country. Polite school board members playing by the unofficial rules of conduct are hoping that people will be honest and reveal their clandestine radicalism while they are in possession of the community’s children. So they keep hoping a whistleblower will step forward and reveal all the evidence needed to conclude a case, and action can then be taken. But as I have also been saying for a long time, you can tell all you need to know by the kind of students and what views they express just from the safety of a school board meeting. But if that weren’t enough, my attention was directed to a Spark article about dress codes that came up over this overly sexualized student in the Channel 5 report, which clearly shows how radical the student population has become. Spark is the student-run newspaper. In the December 28th, 2021 edition titled “Back to the Drawing Board,” students are seeking to reform the school’s dress code to reflect anti-racist sentiments, which specifically include do-rags and sexually “expressive” attire that is directly tied to rape culture. Yeah, that’s really in the article. Strangely, Karin Johnson didn’t report about that even when there was evidence of it right in front of her. The point of the Channel 5 report was to talk about how “dangerous” Darbi Boddy is as a school board member and not following some written or unwritten rules. And that the kid dressed as a streetwalker in the school in front of other children and administrators was the victim. The Spark article goes on to say, “regulating students’ bodies is also another way of perpetuating white, heterosexual, middle-class values, as most dress codes conform to a certain kind of femininity and masculinity that does not take into account cultural, racial, religious, gender, and sexual differences among students.” Many people likely don’t know about the Spark article and otherwise wouldn’t know what students think about dress codes if this Channel 5 report had not shown us the alarming student who thought she needed to express herself as a K-Street applicant to a purple-hatted pimp on the street corner. We used to call them ladies of the night, but these days, the streetwalkers are on the streets at 6 AM. So it’s an expanding market looking for more Lakota applicants, by the way, things look. 

Essentially, the inmates are running the asylum. The administrators allow this bad behavior to continue in the schools and look for overly restrictive school board rules to protect them from administrative judgment. If Darbi Boddy had not gone to see what was going on for herself, we wouldn’t know a lot of what we do about the culture that is clearly driving CRT teaching and making everyday classroom environments highly sexualized.   When the school newspaper thinks that dress codes impose white, middle-class values on them, what the heck are we wasting all this money on an education for? If kids are learning this kind of garbage, and there are mothers like this mom of the girl in the Karin Johnson report who will expose their child on national television just to use her as leverage to get rid of Darbi Boddy off the school board, then is any of the public education at Lakota worth anything?   My question to that mom is, “why would you let your kid go to school dressed the way she was?” To be fearful that Darbi Boddy took pictures of her kid when she was more than willing to exploit that kid to push an obvious political agenda that feeds the kind of maniacal subculture reflected in the Spark article about dress codes…………….we have much bigger problems than just CRT. The public education environment is rotten to the very core of its purpose and is a problem that cannot be ignored. But thankfully, in their hate of Darbi Boddy, all these characters, the mom, Karin Johnson, teachers, administrators, purple-haired people eaters who complain at all the school board meetings about fairness as they push for openly sexual lifestyles have let us peek into their tainted world in reaction. And what we see is very ugly, dangerous, and expensive.

Vote for Thomas Hall for the 46th House District in Ohio: Setting the bar high, too high for political rivals

It’s never been an option from my perspective; after the remapping of the Ohio House Rep districts, Thomas Hall has always been the clear favorite. That’s not because Matt King, who is running against him in the primary that voters will decide on August 2nd of 2022, is a bad candidate. But just that Thomas Hall is that good. He checks all the boxes you’d want for a Representative seat in the new 46th district, which now includes Liberty Township, Ohio, and traditional districts from the north, such as Middletown.   Recently at a West Chester Tea Party meeting, Thomas and Matt spoke to the audience to make their pitch as to why voters should vote for them, and I present those videos here, which comes down to one key attribute that decides the issue. In Thomas Hall’s case, he has a lot of experience and has been very successful during his first term in Columbus. He has done all the right things, including passing blockbuster legislation across Governor DeWine’s desk for H.B. 99, which makes schools safer in the case of a mass shooting. Matt King just doesn’t have the experience, and it showed as he presented himself. Both are nice young men, but in the case of Thomas Hall, he’s just an exceptional political representative who has done such a good job that no challenger would do well against. 

To Matt’s point, he did the best he could, and he’s right about the Founding Fathers being very young when they were involved in the revolutionary business of starting a new country. He’s been a guy from the business world, not a politician like Thomas Hall, who has two terms as a trustee in Madison Township to add to his resume even as young as he is. And typically, we might say that not being in politics is more attractive than voting for the incumbent. In most races, that would be true. But Thomas Hall is such an exceptional young man who has faced the hottest fires of controversy and done so with great poise; you get the feeling from him that he’s just getting started. Thomas Hall has already shown that he can go up to Columbus and work with people who do not agree with him and work on legislation in a productive way to get their support. And he knows how to navigate the rough waters of politics without being a sell-out to his district. Of course, that has made Thomas Hall a target for those jealous of his success. For instance, Sheriff Jones has endorsed Matt King because the Sheriff is on the record being angry at legislation Thomas sponsored, like H.B. 99. But Thomas has managed to pick up the enthusiastic endorsement of Butler County Sheriff’s Office Police Union, which Sheriff Jones is a member. He also has the support of the NRA, Buckeye Firearms, Ohio Right to Life, and the Middletown Police Union. Sometimes when you are too good, you do make enemies. In my opinion, Thomas Hall has made the right kind of enemies and he made those enemies because he had done his job too well. 

Some of those jealous forces have thrown their support behind Matt King simply because they don’t want to live up to the high bar that Thomas has set for them. Matt is a blank sheet of paper, making it much easier to live up to. The hope that a fresh set of eyes as a House Rep might turn out well is the same kind of reasonable hope that someone who purchases a lottery ticket might expect. You can’t win if you don’t buy one. But in buying one, you accept that the outcome is uncertain. In my experience, a person with a business background like Matt has will have a tough time because when you run a business, you can hire who you want, and if you need money, you just go to the bank and make your pitch. The tricky thing about Columbus is that it already has people there whom you have to work with who have their own ideas about things, so it is difficult at best to get anything done and to do so with your authenticity intact—and even saying that of course Democrats who enter the Republican Party as Trojan Horses would like to see an end to Thomas Hall. You can see that clearly in the upcoming fundraiser mysteriously sponsored by the Republican Party of Butler County that has the Super Bowl trophy of Spencer Ware on it. They even put the trophy in Matt’s name. When you see this kind of thing, its always an indication that the candidate doesn’t have their own record to stand on, so they try to evoke the records of other people, like the Super Bowl exploits of a person who was on Super Bowl-winning teams, or Sheriffs with a long history of service, but a history of wanting to be a kingmaker and knock off political rivals at the party level.  

But the most convincing case for Thomas Hall came when he was pressed during the meeting by a critic of H.B. 218, which was a reaction to the impositions of the vaccine mandates. The critic in the audience was pressing Thomas for his support of the bill, which she did not feel went far enough in protecting employees from their employers during Covid. Thomas was front and center with all that activity, so he has a track record to criticize. But I think he handled that emotional question very well, which shows how much grace under fire he can handle, so I offer it here. Many political personalities would have stumbled through this kind of criticism, but Thomas did all he could at the time, so he could confidently answer the question.   There was undoubtedly a time limit being imposed on H.B. 218, and Thomas wanted to get something done, even if it didn’t go as far as the person asking the question wanted it to go, which was complete protection from mandatory vaccines. When the Biden administration put forth their Executive Order in September of 2021, it was essentially a race against time, putting politicians like Thomas Hall between a rock and a hard place on purpose. There is a fine line between individual rights and the rights of a company to require employees to comply with the needs of a workplace. That caused a lot of trouble for Columbus in reacting to the pressure; Thomas showed outstanding leadership during this challenging situation and was very respectful to his critic when asked the question. Of course, many of the Biden mandates have been found unconstitutional, as many thought would be the case all along. H.B. 218 tried to do something in a really tough time, so there wasn’t much more Thomas could do, but his reaction to the criticism is telling because it shows how he can handle pressure, even when it’s critical. Matt King couldn’t be asked any questions because he didn’t have a record to defend. And ultimately, that’s what this race comes down to; one of the candidates for the newly created 46th District in Ohio has a lot of experience and has been very successful. The other guy is hoping to use other people’s reputations to knock off a political rival who has set the bar too high for other politicians to live up to. That makes it a pretty clear case. Ultimately it’s up to voters, but the logic favors Thomas Hall greatly.

Eric Greitens for Senate: Get your RINO Hunting card, there are no limits!

There seems to be some controversy about Eric Greitens’ new ad in Missouri, where he is running for Senate on an “anti-RINO” platform. In his ad, he uses real firearms to storm a home in a very military way to imply metaphorically that if elected, he promises to go “rino hunting” and that if you elect him, he will issue voters a “rino hunting license.” For that ad, the mainstreamers are apocalyptic; they are calling it an open invitation to fascism, where force is used to impose democratic order. Well, all this discussion merits some understanding because the political establishment continues to be perplexed about what the MAGA movement is and why there continue to be aggressive candidates running for office like Eric Greitens. They are winning primaries and setting up a general election that will not just destroy Democrat majorities in the House and Senate but knock off RINO Republicans as well. The entire media system is set up to appeal to RINOs and Democrats, and it’s been that way for many years. But slowly, since the election fraud of 2020, a decision was made by the voting public to vote for a different kind of politician, and Eric Greitens represents the standard for the new MAGA candidates. What voters want when they talk about “hunting RINOs” is revenge for selling out America over the years. In the minds of many, the behavior of Republicans in Name Only is worse than Democrats because they pretended to be something they weren’t and sought to deceive us, which deserves punishment. 

Fascism is what the Democrats have been doing: artificially raising gas prices to force the public to buy dumb electric cars. It’s about lying about birth certificates so they could run a radical as president to avoid questions of basic qualifications. It’s weaponizing the FBI to knock out political rivals. Using other countries as an excuse for bogus investigations. It’s deliberately collapsing our economy to fulfill the religious zealots advocating climate change through our Federal Reserve. Its riots in the streets over every little social issue. It’s gun control and attempting at every tragedy caused by liberal politics to erode away the constitution at every opportunity. We’ve watched fascism come into America through the Democrat Party, and we are sick of getting punched in the face over it. And we are sick of Republicans letting them do it. We elected Republicans to fight Democrats and protect our country’s constitution, but they haven’t done it. So there is justifiable anger at RINOs for talking tough but letting themselves get beat up by the bullies in the Democrat Party for many years and losing every time. What must be made clear is that Trump did not create this movement. The RINO hunting concept is not specific to President Trump. He was created out of a need to hunt RINOs. That’s why in 2015, when all the top Republicans were running for office, including people like Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and even Rand Paul, nobody was biting on them so long as Donald Trump was on stage. People wanted a real fighter, someone from the outside to shake things up. They wanted revenge for how the political machine had sold us all out and opened the door for globalism to destroy our country. And they weren’t playing games. They voted for Trump and were happy they did. They liked the way their country ran under Trump, and now they want much more of it.

What we are seeing now is something many of us were trying to figure out how to make happen over ten years ago when the Tea Party began purging RINOs from the Republican Party at the level of central committees. Many Republicans had their feelings hurt as they were being called RINOs for just working with the other side, for reaching across the aisle to work with Democrats bipartisanly. After all, that’s what politics was, right? Nobody ever gets what they want entirely, so they have to give and take and work with people with different opinions. Going back to the Ross Perot campaign of 1992, after eight years of Reagan and four years of his successor, George Bush, a significant part of the population on the Republican side was sick of all the happy talk and compromise that was going on. Even Newt Gingrich, who organized the takeover in congress in 1994, didn’t go far enough because he and Bob Dole talked tough, but Clinton beat them in the media every time. They were like the Washington Generals playing games against the Harlem Globetrotters. The Generals never win and always end up losing in comedic ways to the Globetrotters. That’s not what we wanted in politicians. We wanted winners, and many people have worked their entire adult lives to build a platform where that could happen, where winners on the conservative side would actually occupy offices. What the political establishment did to Trump before, during, and after the presidential office has been disgraceful because they are mad that we gave them politicians as voters who refused to lose. Trump expected to win, and that’s essentially what the MAGA movement is in politics. We want revenge for all the losses Republicans have given up without a fight over the years, and we want a House and Senate that thinks the same way, so that is what we have been building now for several years culminating in the kind of campaign that Eric Greitens is running in Missouri for Senate. 

The Greitens campaign is not unusual, not the way the mainstreamers wish it were. And Trump is the vehicle to make a MAGA platform happen, which he’s been doing through this primary season. The goal is not to just win the presidency, which should be obvious. It has been a multi-year plan going all the way back into the 90s to replace all three branches of government with MAGA-type candidates. We have seen how well that has been working at the Supreme Court. Now we need that kind of representation in the House and Senate, and we are getting them. Eric Greitens is just one of many who will be joining the government at the federal level and represents a new kind of politician that more reflects what the voting public actually wants. If we had been talking about fascism, then we would have just taken our guns and taken over the government at gunpoint, which is still an option if the other side tosses out our constitution, as all progressives seem inclined to do.

No, we have been doing all this work through voting, which is why we’re so upset about the obvious election fraud in 2020. Progressive globalists knew they couldn’t beat President Trump, so they stole the election to get rid of him, hoping that all this MAGA populism would just go away and they’d get Karl Rove back running the Republican Party. But no, those loser Republicans are not coming back. We have been working within the Republican Party for a long time to change how Republicans play the game.   And we want revenge against the RINOs who have sold America out, people like Mitch McConnell. And we want Republicans who go to Washington D.C. and expect to win. Not who expects to “compromise” with evil and expect the country to survive. Democrats have shown they don’t like America, so compromising with them is not a good idea. And when a candidate like Greitens comes along and talks about RINO hunting, he’s speaking the language of most American voters. And there is nothing that the establishment can do to hide that fact. They’ve done enough damage already.

How to Explain Election Fraud to Non-Believers: Texas Republicans Disavow the Biden Administration, and more will follow

The Texas Republican Party has disavowed the Biden administration due to the evidence pouring in regarding the 2020 election. This is more than political theater; it’s an actual legal position that more states will be joining in the months to come because there has now been time to look at the various election discrepancies and to understand what impact they had on the final result, which shows that Job Biden did not come close to winning the election and that he should not be in the White House presently. This, of course, brings up several very inconvenient legal problems, such as everything that Biden has done, all his executive orders, all his policy decisions, and everything he has signed his name to has no legal merit because he was elected fraudulently and every day that he is in office, he is causing further damage to a country that is being run by the administrative state, and not the people of our republic. We do not have a flea-bitten democracy; as liberals say all the time, we have a representative republic. The assumption was that if Democrats screamed loudest and most often, they could override the legality of office holder positions, but we are seeing that no matter how loud they shout and attempt to suppress the crime that many thousands of them committed, the evidence of massive election fraud is coming in fast now. And lots of people are talking about it way more than they thought would be at this point in the Biden administration, and they aren’t sure what to do about it. Nobody can ignore the obvious problems it causes. 

The plan all along was to control the messaging in the media, to keep the evidence from getting out. As I point out, the plan for stealing the election leads all roads to the World Economic Forum members who did it. It’s all the same people involved in Covid, manipulating the media with massive donations, the war against fossil fuels, climate change religious radicalism; the guilt points ultimately to the door of Klaus Schwab and his partners in crime, the Desecrators of Davos as I call them. They were heavily invested in their Great Reset, with trillions of dollars of assets they controlled, and they weren’t going to let an American election destroy their plans. They were going to get rid of Trump, hell, or high water, and they were going to insert their guy into the White House to make sure their plans happened, which were outlined in their eight predictions by 2030, four of which directly attack the lifestyle of the United States. Many want to believe that China worked out all the details of backdooring our election system, and it looks like they certainly played their role. But the instigators point back originally to the World Economic Forum. They are the characters of intent. They operate outside nations’ sovereignty and aren’t tied down with silly things like laws and social constructs. They are simply the next evolution of Socialist International, functioning like a secret society that isn’t a secret. They control the media, they control most of industry, and they control the political movements around the world and are determined to finally make the ridiculous work of Karl Marx come to reality under global unity. So, when you want to know who stole our election in 2020, look no further than Klaus Schwab and the gang. They ate the canary; we can still see the feathers sticking out of their smiling faces. 

Now that there are better social media platforms that aren’t controlled by the Desecrators of Davos types, such as Truth Social and Gettr, talk of election fraud is accelerating. That is what the J6 commission is all about: hiding the real crime of election fraud by attempting to penalize those who were upset about the fraud. Facebook and Twitter no longer have market share in shaping the story; too many people are now on the alternatives that the nightly news can’t be contained behind a façade of discourse that would deny election fraud until the end of time. So there is a panic that I have noticed from the liberal antagonizers who are trying to harass people who continue to profess that election fraud happened by challenging them to prove it. Well, here is what I have been saying to all of them, those antagonizers. It’s not our job, the victims of election fraud from the 2020 election, to prove to people who do not want to see the evidence and make them look at it. The criminals who committed the fraud and continue to advocate for it with an illegal president in the White House signing all kinds of legislation, none of which has any legal merit, don’t get to give us more work to do to convince them of their bad deeds. Instead, the abundance of evidence is everywhere. I’d refer them to read the CISA report that shows the electronic machines could be backdoored through the internet and likely were. That is an official report that is quite concerning. That’s a big problem all by itself. But we don’t even need that to prove that Joe Biden should not be in the White House. We have the names of the mules who trafficked ballots and were paid half a billion dollars by Facebook to steal the 2020 election. There is a clear prosecution trail, and the path to justice flows through Facebook, and ultimately the ringleader of the Desecrators of Davos, Klaus Schwab, where Bill Gates, George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg, and Larry Fink all are working to undo America as a superpower and to give birth to a New World Order that they control. What’s hard to understand about that? 

The next thing that people who are trying to conceal the steal is that they point to the states certifying the election, that no judge found in favor of President Trump and that we should all just move on. It’s quite evident in hindsight what the criminals intended with the election; they knew legally that there wasn’t enough time from November when we had the election to January when the next president was to be inaugurated to pose any real legal challenge. The game all along was to run out the clock and push Trump out of the White House. It was a coup organized by the same radical elements we had just seen, even in the FBI, working on getting rid of the people’s pick for president and inserting characters of their desire from the administrative state. Trump’s lawyers tried to do a multi-year investigation in December 2020, but that just wasn’t enough time, and the courts rejected all the efforts because courts take time. Everyone knew it would take years to dig through all the election fraud issues, so the steal intended to use the process timeline to help hide the evidence. They figured it would be too late by the time everyone figured out what happened, which is where we find ourselves today. The evidence is there, but nobody really knows what to do about it because it has significant legal implications that nobody wants to deal with. But just remember, the same people who lied to us about Covid, about the use of Ivermectin and Hydroxicloriqine to treat it and save lives, and instead pushed vaccine mandates on us that only were good for the drug companies who made them, are all the same people trying to steer everyone away from election fraud. And that tells you exactly who the guilty parties are. They are all involved in the greatest crimes ever conducted on humanity, and punishments for those crimes are mandated justice that can’t be ignored. They have been caught, and there is a mounting chorus of voices who realize what happened and aren’t happy about it.

Mt. Rushmore is Much More American than Washington D.C.: Yes, Progressives are trying to erase your country away completely

I hear a lot of people saying things like, “is all this on purpose?” People who don’t usually think too deeply about politics and just want to live their lives are starting to ask questions about what they see going on in politics. Most people trust that the government is doing their business with good intentions, so with the gas prices being so high, the continued worry that some pandemic virus will be unleashed by Bill Gates and the people at the World Economic Forum and that inflation will make buying an apple a situation of bankruptcy, people are starting to wonder if all these bad things are on purpose. That is when I reminded them that the Biden administration canceled in May of 2021 Trump’s executive order to construct The National Garden of American Heroes, which would be a fine addition to patriotic sites like Mt. Rushmore. Why would Biden and his team cancel such a patriotic project even as they sent billions of dollars to Ukraine and their war with Russia, which has stalled out and become a real line in the sand in the global war between a One World Order and sentiments of nationalism?   Biden and Democrats, in general, are progressives, which means they wish to “progress” beyond the idea of America. The downfall of America is actually one of the eight goals of the Desecrators of Davos in the World Economic Forum, so when Biden canceled that Trump project of patriotism, he was saying a lot, especially since it was done so soon in his acquired presidency. Progressives didn’t want Americans to think about their country in favorable ways. They don’t like the 4th of July and places like Mt. Rushmore. They want America to get rid of its constitution and to become a member of a global society where everyone is equal; even all the crappy little countries run by socialist tyrants. 

I spent the most recent weekend at a Fast Draw shoot where one of my friends had just returned from a big Fast Draw shoot that occurred in Sturgis, South Dakota, and it brought to my mind good memories of my time there a year ago when I had my entire family at Mt. Rushmore. It was a day I still think of at least once a day and was a very special occasion. Mt. Rushmore is one of those extraordinary places many intend to visit, but some never find the time. But I would say that if you can at all, or are planning a vacation to go somewhere anyway, to forget about the condo in Florida or some other trip. In these times, go to Mt. Rushmore and let it do what it was designed to do, reminding the people of America why America is worth fighting for. It’s one of those places that once you park in the garage and step up onto the terrace that aligns with the carvings of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln on the big rock wall high above, that the anger of the world toward America comes into sharp focus. Trump, during his administration, wanted to expand on the Mt. Rushmore experience to solidify more the patriotism Americans feel at places like Mt. Rushmore. I bought several books there that have turned out to be real treasures that I have read throughout the year, and it has given me a fresh perspective into all the bad things that we see happening on the nightly news. Enough of a perspective that I say to all those people asking if all this is on purpose with an affirmative, yes. Yes, they intend to destroy America. That’s what progressives want. That’s what the Democrat Party wants, as does the Desecrators of Davos. They want an end to America and its constitution, which is why Biden canceled Trump’s National Garden of American Heroes. They didn’t just steal an election when they took it from Trump; they intend to steal America as a whole and all of us with it. 

I’ve been to Washington D.C. and never find it very American. Sure, it’s the capital of our country, named after the first president. But it feels like a mess of memory and silly reverence to Masonic symbolism. It’s a city built out of superstition with all the streets and monuments tying America to some Egyptian sentiment with alignments to Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, and many others, complete with zodiacs all over the place that reflect a reverence of a new country without much history of its own trying to tie itself to the depth and lore of the ancients. That lack of character is why many who work in the D.C. swamp don’t fight for America but for the European ideas that founded the Masonic order and the kind of fraternities that spawn from their organizations. It’s also why so many political people and financial supporters turn toward pagan memories for supernatural aid for guidance in how to run a country, which obviously they all miss the mark. I say to anybody who wants to know, if you want to understand America, don’t go to Washington D.C.  America is not there. That is not the best of what America offers. But Mt. Rushmore is a monument to America that has captured the essence of what America is, majestic yet remote. Hospitable yet accessible and grand, all in the same sweep of sentiment. Mt. Rushmore is a much better representation of America than its own capital city of Washington D.C. The city’s main feature is a giant Egyptian obelisk, the tallest testament in that part of the world, and it has nothing to do with American pride and spirit. It’s a reverence to Egyptian beliefs as the Masons who built the city and started the country thought of them in star alignments and the power of ancient pagan gods. It’s not there to revere the work of Jesus Christ or the 5000 Year Leap of Christian faith that essentially made America unique. 

On the way to Mt. Rushmore is a little watering hole of a place just on the edge of the Badlands called Wall Drug. It’s a fantastic tourist trap that embodies all the great things about America in one specific place, and it’s one of those places that remind you of the tenacious spirit of the American mind. Built to satisfy the tourist traffic of people who make the pilgrimage to Mt. Rushmore, about an hour to the west, you get the feeling when you go there that no matter what happens in the outside world, America will always remain so long as you are at Wall Drug and the nearby Blackhills of South Dakota where Mt. Rushmore was carved. It’s a culture all of its own. It is one of the primary reasons that the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is such a popular yearly journey that is made so that the participants can touch the ideas of America far removed from the noise of the big cities and Masonic-created capitals. New York doesn’t get it, and Washington D.C. certainly doesn’t. Miami, Florida, doesn’t get it at all. But Wall Drug in South Dakota does, Mt. Rushmore, Sturgis, Deadwood, Keystone, Rapid City, they all get it, and if there were one place on earth where people could go to charge their batteries in these challenging times with the American spirit they crave, then I would recommend a trip to Mt. Rushmore and the surrounding areas for a week or so. I’ve done it recently, and it carried me well through the last year. And when my friend just returned from a shoot out there, it reminded me that my experience was not specific to me but is common to all people who travel there. So if you are looking for your country and don’t see it on the nightly news, even with gas prices being as high as they are, I recommend a trip to Mt. Rushmore. You certainly won’t regret it.

Joe Biden, the Hapless Loser: A physical manifestation of failure

They didn’t talk about it much when it happened that President Biden fell up the stairs on his way to the Jimmy Kimmel Show while boarding Air Force One for the second time. Then while riding his bicycle in Delaware, he actually fell off his bicycle, as if he were a child just learning to ride and forgot to put his foot down when coming to a stop. It looked terrible and incompetent. But as many were pointing to the obvious physical decline of an inserted president, someone that people didn’t pick for president but an administrative state that has so little respect for individual ability that they thought they could just stick a “yes man” into the office and turn him loose, it reminded me of a constant element to any competitive endeavor, pressure and what it can do to a mind not prepared to meet it.   Over this span of time, Biden has been complaining that the Republican Party of today is not that of our fathers and grandfathers. He has been yearning for the days when Republicans were easy to beat by Democrats when the Saul Alinsky playbook held true, and Republicans could be destroyed just by calling them a bad name. No, those days are over, Joe, and he is feeling the pressure. The people who put him in office led him to believe that if he just stood here, and stood there, he would be propped up and respected. But that’s not how it is in this new Republican age of the MAGA movement. People got a taste from Trump of what a real president could do, and this artificial mess of the Biden presidency is putting pressure on all Democrats that they are not prepared to deal with. Biden is showing that pressure with these constant mistakes he makes in public. He is the physical manifestation of failure, and it is showing itself in his daily actions.

The mainstream news outlets, particularly Fox News, thought the ten loser Republican senators who showed they were willing to compromise on gun legislation were doing what was expected in politics. For them, it looked like they could talk about “bipartisan” activity on the topic of gun legislation. But they really wanted the typical Republican response to reports lately that there has been gun violence and, therefore, a political push to further erode the Second Amendment and, thus, the Constitution itself. By watching ten senators like Mitt Romney and Rob Portman buckle under the constant media pressure, some hoped that this meant the old tricks would work, where Republicans always caved to the name-calling of the Democrats and that “compromise” could be found and that legislation could be bipartisan. But concern erupted when those ten senators were left on an island by the Republican Party, and MAGA supporters condemned their compromise aggressively. No, this was not the Republican Party of our fathers, the one that loses all the time and is always up for a compromise while Democrats stand together and give up nothing. They are the party of take, take, take, and they never bend to compromise. To them, that has been what the Republican Party has been to politics, the party of compromise, and if they resisted, they would be called names until they did compromise. It’s been a one-sided game that conservative people have become sick of, and they have been seeking new types of Republicans for years, creating the MAGA movement in America.

I have been watching and participating in this process for years. First, we could see it in the various central committees at the local level, where the topic of RINOs was brought up in the early Tea Party days. In my area, I knew Rob Portman when he was first getting started, and John Boehner is one of my neighbors, so he always comes up. When he was Speaker of the House, he thought he was one of the most conservative people on planet earth, and his most significant accomplishment was in bringing the Pope to Congress. He was stunned to learn that area people were calling him a RINO starting around 2012, along with Governor Kasich at the time, who was too prone to compromise with Democrats over just about everything. After all, to them, that’s what politics was all about, compromise. Well, people were getting tired of losing, and this was before there was ever a Trump on the national stage in politics. At that time, he only had a television show and wrote best-selling books. People wanted Republicans to fight back, not to compromise with evil. Not to compromise with people who obviously wanted to destroy American life in every way that we know it. Compromising with evil was giving it power. I was with a senator at the time who was called a RINO to his face by people he thought respected him. He was a good guy playing by what he thought were the rules of politics, to be the bigger person and lead by example. The expectation was that if we gave a little, then the other side would give a little, and in that way, progress would get done. But, in truth, Democrats just kept taking, and taking, and taking. They never gave up anything. So that made the RINOs look like fools, and voters were tired of fools who didn’t win. So they voted for President Trump and have stuck with him no matter what because he has been the only politician in their memory who promised them victory. And for a win, they will put up with a lot to get it, and they sure have.

As Biden fell off his bicycle, he was obviously playing way over his head. This was not the job they had promised him. The administrative state has lost control, and Biden is the puppet left on the stage without a hand to guide it. So, he’s making mistakes all over the place. He can’t handle the pressure because he was never meant to. And he’s constantly complaining because he’s craving the “old-fashioned” Republicans who used to let Democrats win all the time. If only they could get back to those days. The fact that he’s complaining about it as much as he is says everything about the public pressure behind the scenes. He’s a hapless old man who has lost his political savvy and often repeats what his 20-something political radicals in his administration say. They don’t know what to do, they are losing to Republicans in every way it can be measured, and their party isn’t built for any of it. Democrats are built to use the Saul Alinsky playbook to harass conservatives into making all the compromise, while the Democrats spread vast evil across the world and call it “bipartisanship.” Voters are sick of that deal and have been for a long time. Trump is the leader of the MAGA movement for now, but slowly these Democrats are starting to learn, people want winners in the Republican Party. And other Republicans like Ron DeSantis are figuring out that formula, and the cat is out of the bag. I’ve been watching the process for a long time, and I can say it’s not going back to those RINO compromises. Instead, destroying the Democrat Party is what voters want, especially after what happened in the events leading up to 2020. And the pressure on Democrats is tremendous, and they are showing that the pressure is getting to them in all kinds of little ways, particularly in crashing bicycles and falling down just going up steps.
