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

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

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

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

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

Nazis in Antarctica, Aliens, Secret Societies, and the World Economic Forum: Eisenhower’s warning about the Military Industrial Complex

After watching the 2023 Davos coverage of the World Economic Forum, the only thing that kept popping up in my mind was Holloman Air Force Base with President Eisenhower stepping off Air Force One in the New Mexico desert sun and into a couple of UFOs parked on the runway for a critical meeting. The occupants of the UFOs are more controversial than the unique craft themselves; they could have been beings from another world or an off-shoot colony of Nazis who never went away after World War II and had simply moved underground, literally in Antarctica, where many volcanic caves have produced underground chambers only accessible by submarine in a comfortable 70-degree environment all the time. The talk has been persistent over the years that nobody won World War II. We simply wiped out the Third Reich in Germany, created the United Nations, and then hired some of the Nazis as our own scientists and created NASA with occult leaders like Jack Parsons and Alister Crowley leading the charge in rocket design, along with the Nazi Warner Von Braun. Meanwhile, a Fourth Reich, which had long been planned by the creation of the Nazis in the first place by a couple of secret societies, the Thule Society and the Vril Society, claiming to have contact with aliens from other worlds, escaped with the help of American corporations, such as the Ford Motor Company and many other sympathizers to the Nazi cause. They set up shop in Antarctica, using Argentina and other areas of South America as a new base of operations. There are pictures that show Adolf Hitler in Argentina, as well as other prominent Nazi officials, and that the United States helped all this along because they wanted a space program of their own, and the Nazis were the way to get it. 

Of course, the story gets even more colorful than that. There was a conflict off the tip of South America close to Antarctica and the superior technology that the Nazis had been working on all during the war. American forces were easily beaten, and the event rattled the intelligence community profoundly. It was obvious to all involved that the Nazis had been developing lots of unique technologies, UFOs being one of them. They were openly working with characters from other worlds, species of visitors who had been coming to Earth for more than 10,000 years and were part of our human history from the beginning. And the Nazis, as other secret societies had been doing for a long time, were trading information and advancing in a way that national countries could not keep up with. To flex their muscle after the conflict in South America that embarrassed further the American Navy, those same Nazis used their high technology to harass Americans over Washington D.C. in 1952, just to prove they could. Of course, the incident was the famous UFOs over the American Capitol story. It got plenty of attention, which led to Eisenhower meeting with them for a treaty in 1955 at Holloman Air Force Base. If America couldn’t beat them, we could join them. And it’s at that moment that many point to where America became a corporation instead of a republic, and all Americans became a captured serial number asset to this invisible corporate conglomerate who had actually caused all the World Wars and was now entirely in control of Earth behind the veil of the world’s governments. In the 1960s, as he was going out of the door of the Presidency just before Kennedy stepped in, President Eisenhower gave his famous speech about the Military Industrial Complex and warned us of the dangers they possessed. People scratched their heads at the time, but now it all makes much more sense. 

Watching the trajectory of history over the last seven decades has only made this crazy story seem more plausible. I’ve known about these events as kind of fun facts for much of my life, but I sort of laughed it off as a bunch of interesting information that didn’t have much validity in reality. I have been to Roswell and done my own research into the UFO phenomena there, and my conclusions were that the UFO crash that happened there was likely perpetuated by a dying town, destroyed by a flawed foreign policy that sucked away the jobs there and gave them to China and Mexico. All the town had to draw people to it was talk about aliens and government cover-ups. Yet, there is more to the story, just beyond the veil. And much of this has been confirmed by President Trump’s Presidency that nobody would have believed before. That the FBI, CIA, and other intelligence agencies were not working for the voters of America but for some mysterious force that was not accountable to the American public. The war in Ukraine suddenly was evident for what it was, a way to change the boundaries of the world, using the American military as the primary mover in the chessboard, and it was being done for mysterious reasons that had nothing to do with the American Constitution, or the will of the American people. These intelligence agencies did much of their work by hiding the obvious in plain sight and keeping people from noticing by layering conspiracy theories in front of the truth to keep anybody from discovering or admitting it. After the events of Covid, the coup against President Trump, and the antics of the World Economic Forum led by Klaus Schwab and the gang, suddenly all that crazy stuff of Nazis in Antarctica, alien interactions with secret societies, and the selling out of America by an American president for the good intention of protecting the people from superior technology and accepting those Nazis into partnerships with the American government in trade for a space program suddenly takes on all new meetings. 

From my point of view, the bottom line of the matter is that I don’t care about all the crazy stories. I don’t care if aliens are running the world and they have technology far superior to anything human beings have managed to create so far. I don’t even care if those alien beings actually had a hand in building the human race from the ground up for their own needs. And that, in truth, many species of aliens are fighting it out on Earth and other places all the time. And that the Nazis reached out to them first and benefited in ways that gave them and their corporate partners leverage over all the nations of the world in the 20th century. Now those same people have formed the World Economic Forum, which was nothing more than another secret society cult worshipping Mother Earth with climate change. What we do know and can prove without a doubt is that none of these World Economic Forum people respect the American constitution, and neither does American intelligence or our military. Their behavior gives credence to these vast conspiracy theories, which may not prove to be so crazy after all. The Davos characters, the Desecrators of Davos as I like to call them, as other people call them the “elites,” do not have respect or reverence for American sovereignty, and they act like it’s already a conquered nation. And that Eisenhower’s speech about the military-industrial complex was something we should revisit and take notice of. Because it looks like the little dog from the Wizard of Oz has pulled away the curtain, and we can see who and what has been behind the smoke and mirrors. And what we have learned because of the Trump presidency is that the conspiracy theories were more than fiction. What we know now requires us to act accordingly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Love the Debate to Make McCarthy Speaker: More fights in congress will only push honesty to the top and give corruption no place to hide

One of the biggest problems with progressives is that they expect that everything will “progress” along with their assumed trajectory of destruction. There has been a plan for the destruction of America from outside forces who long ago figured out that fighting the American military was not going to work for them, so they turned to sabotage, political subversion, and even election fraud to wear away the American government into global submission gradually. Communism and socialism are the foundations of the progressive political movement, so one of their greatest weapons has been to erode away the republic style of government in America into a more democratic form of mass rule with consensus building, and for the last one hundred years, that has been the basic premise of all our government, from the school board level to the debates in Congress in Washington D.C. With all that said, I found it amusing and astonishing how people reacted to the vote for Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House during the first week of January 2023. It took debates all week and 15 different votes to get members of Congress to agree on McCarthy as the Speaker, which I thought was acceptable. I had no problem with the arguments; as I said, this is what government should look like. People should argue and push and shove while managing important matters because that’s how agreements on fundamental truths are determined. Yet I had many people asking me what I thought about the whole “speaker” issue because the media was reporting the whole thing as a travesty, and they believed what they were hearing, which was funny and sad all at that same time.

I have explained to Lynda O’Conner, president of the Lakota school board, the government school in my neighborhood, that government is not supposed to be centered on consensus building; it should be centered on honest debate. I had to laugh at her and some of the other school board members when they sat me down in a basement back in April of 2023 with some local Tea Party members and someone they thought was a great legal mind and tried to apply a new variation of the Delphi Technique on me, to get me convinced that the new school board member Darbi Boddy was bad for the school board and had to be removed. It was insulting to me because I have taught those techniques to hundreds of people for over two decades, and it certainly wasn’t going to work on me. Instead, I explained to them that I thought Darbi was great for the Lakota school board, we have been able to expose a lot of terrible stuff that we otherwise would have never known about because of Darbi, and I further told Lynda that this kind of contention and debate was how I liked to do things. Getting along isn’t the goal; I’ve been in meetings where chairs and computers are thrown, and holes are punched through walls, people get mad, they want to fight, and tempers flare. But that’s all good. I love it; it always forces people to work through their problems and get to the truth. I consider the consensus-building efforts she and others were trying to apply to me to be the evilest thing in the world, using friendships and peer pressure to whip up votes that don’t follow logic but sentiment. We left company that day to never speak again, with years of friendships tossed out the window. That is essentially what has been wrong with all government.

And that’s why I told everyone during the McCarthy vote that I was happy, not sad, by the process. We have a lot to do in the people’s House. There are many investigations into crimes that have ostentatiously occurred, the impeachments of Trump, the lies and manipulations that occurred under Nancy Pelosi, and the way that Congress grossly abused its power. We can’t play patty cake with these people. There have to be punishments for what occurred. And we still have to settle all the crimes that occurred with Covid. You can’t lock down society, conduct a coup against an American president, and deliberately kill people by denying them medicine for a government-controlled pandemic and just get away with it. There will have to be some complex discussions about where Covid came from, who made it, and who let it loose into the world. I think these are rhetorical questions at this point, but we need to ask them formally and take action correctly and legally. Then there is the Joe Biden mess, the laptop, the relationship with Ukraine, and the open border policy that is an open harassment of American sovereignty. Biden, at best, has committed sedition by not securing the border, either by sheer stupidity or purposeful insurrection. We must have a tough congress to ask those hard questions and overcome a media obsessed with consensus building who will try to sabotage the opinion of the American people the way I described the consensus-building exercise that school boards typically use to sell radicalism to the public. 

I was actually disappointed that things were settled by Friday night. I wouldn’t have minded seeing a month of debate, fistfights, and messy arguments. People keep saying that Marjorie Taylor Green has stepped over the line and is sleeping with McCarthy because she is so cozy with him. I see only good things coming out of Green. I met her a few times recently while she was campaigning for J.D. Vance. She knows what she is doing. If she can pull Kevin McCarthy from a RINO position into the Freedom Caucus and put her on some committees that will be investigating Joe Biden and others, that’s great. I hope that romance action isn’t part of under the sheet negotiations. With her, I don’t think so. But humans do those kinds of things. What I care about are the results. And the trajectory of change is not headed in favor of the progressives. Instead, it’s going the other way. I’m not particularly impressed with Speakers of the House and their third most powerful person in the world status. I have one living essentially in my neighborhood, John Boehner. I have a lot of mutual friends who love Boehner. I never have, not when he was at the height of his power, and certainly not now. Boehner realized what was cooking in 2015; the powers of consensus-building and progressivism were eroding and falling apart before their eyes. It’s not getting stronger. The same path of destruction occurred with Nancy Pelosi and Paul Ryan. McCarthy either gets right with the Freedom Caucus or will lose power. That is how it is and where it’s going. So I expected a fight. I also expected nobody but McCarthy to be Speaker.

There are still a lot of RINOs in Congress, but only 20 or so Freedom members. But that number is growing more and more each session. And eventually, it will primarily all be Freedom members. So there is no reason to play nice with Democrats and Progressives. Just don’t overplay the hands. And debate and fighting show the strength of the hand; that’s how you know what’s really going on. Playing nice and holding hands with consensus building will do nothing but create more corruption, and for voters, that’s what they are determined to see an end to. The debate shows that we are headed in the right direction.

I Don’t Want Any Part of “The Club”: If Butler County Republicans aren’t serving the taxpayers, then they are serving corruption

Since the very corrupt prosecution of Roger Reynolds in Butler County, I have had more than a few people trying to rationalize it to me, “that the club likes musical chairs,” meaning they want a change in blood. And the sleight of hand that is going on with assigning Joe Statzer to the auditor role as a “temporary” assignment with a wink and a nod indication that after a short time, the Butler County Commissioners will just make that appointment permanent, is the kind of behavior that people have grown sick of. The media reporting on the matter made it quite obvious what was going on. The establishment types, I would go as far as to call them RINOs, lost now that Trump isn’t in the White House, are fighting for power and control. They don’t want people like Roger Reynolds looking through their books, and they have old scores to settle that go back to the David Kern days. It’s the kind of disgusting power people are afraid of in Congress presently, with the debate to not vote for Kevin McCarthy for Speaker of the House. People don’t trust these establishment politicians; in this case, I know most of them personally. They don’t see themselves as dangerous; they think of themselves as good people. But like the kind of horrible things we have seen come from abuse of power on the national level, we have certainly seen it applied to Roger Reynolds and to prevent Nancy Nix from being appointed that job by the Butler County Republican Party to keep the continuity of some very good work done at the auditor level, and rearranging the chairs that fit the party, not the voters who are supposed to be in charge. And people keep talking to me about this “club” idea as if it should matter to me. So let me just say I don’t work with politics to be part of the Club, to be invited to all the VIP events. I do it because I want to see good government in my town and for people to get what they expect for their taxpayer dollars. I personally like Joe, and I like the people around Joe, but he’s Sheriff Jones’ direct guy. It was Jones who wanted to push Roger Reynolds from his auditor’s office for all kinds of reasons, so this notion that two commissioners voted to appoint Joe Statzer as auditor of Butler County with a wink and a nod of making it a permanent position is not a good thing. 

Out of the three Butler County Commissioners who voted for Joe to step into that auditor role, two of them are what I’d consider hard Democrats, just as I consider Sheriff Jones a Democrat, a big union slug that is too expensive, and love to use power and force to intimidate political rivals into submission. And that kind of stuff works for people who want to be in the Republican Party “Club.” I am aware that people are only nice to me at social events because they’d like to invite me into the Club to have some control over my behavior. They certainly aren’t nice to me because they like me. I’ve been in business for many decades now and have dealt with a lot sharper tacks in the box than local politicians. Even national politicians. There are smart people out in the world, and these guys are not among them. I have sometimes played along because that’s what you do in all business meetings. You look for common ground and focus on that to build relationships. It’s my hope that those relationships end up working out well for the taxpayers, so it’s worth doing. But sucking up just to be in some stupid club, no thanks. I don’t need or want more friends, and I certainly would never put myself in a position to get a call late at night telling me how to think or feel so I could remain a member of a “club.” And it’s the “club” mentality that the commissioners were clearly protecting with the appointment of Joe Statzer to the auditor job. Only TC Rogers voted against Joe’s appointment; he understands what’s happening. The other two, Cindy Carpenter, might as well be the belt holding up Sheriff Jones’ pants, voted to protect the “club.” Take that belt away, and the Sheriff’s pants fall right off. And Don Dixon was the other one. Everyone keeps telling me what a great guy Don is as if I didn’t know him. As I say all the time, I love all Republicans until they aren’t. And for those who decide they are Republican all of a sudden, I welcome them. But it must be remembered that Democrats who become Republicans always have some Democrat still in them, and that is certainly the case with Don Dixon, who was a Democrat until 2000 when he switched parties during a time when it was obvious how things were going in Butler County, Ohio politically. 

I’ve known the Dixon family for a very long time. I see Don here and there, and I think he’s a pretty good guy. I don’t rush over to shake his hand for many reasons. I’ll always think of him as the guy who cost me the championship in the Soap Box Derby race in Hamilton, Ohio, in 1979, when I was around 10 or 11 years old. I was racing for the championship against Brent Dixon, Don’s son and the races were so close over three tries to determine a winner that the event judges just gave the win to the Dixons because of their political influence. That was told to my parents and me unofficially because that’s how the “club” works. That’s why many of these people want political power, so they can tilt the table in their favor when needed. In that Soap Box Derby race, we should have continued racing until a winner could be determined. But the judges were tired in the June sun and wanted to go home. So instead of another race, they just decided that the Dixon kid won. And I developed a hatred for “club” politics that would last the rest of my life. That next year Ronald Reagan ran for president, and I was the campaign spokesman in the 7th grade for our school and have been involved in politics ever since. My hatred for “club” politics likely started that day and still persists over 40 years later and will likely continue for another 40 years. (CLICK HERE to read more of this story.)

And that is what’s wrong with politics in general and why all the fuss over Kevin McCarthy. I live in a town where I have a lot of mutual friends who know John Boehner personally. I did not like John Boehner when he was the third most powerful person in the world, and I don’t like him now as a pot spokesman. It wasn’t personal, but I hated the “Club” as it was back then. And now, with Trump out of the White House, the bottom feeders have lost focus and are resuming their desire for corruption, to tilt the tables of power in their favor and with any means necessary, and they think that people will just put up with it. And I’d warn them otherwise. I have been watching this stuff for a long time, and people are much smarter about these things than they used to be. They don’t like corruption; this is why they voted for Trump because they want someone to stand up to this kind of behavior instead of just putting up with it. And on the local level, politics was never, and should never be, membership into a “club.” The only thing good about politics is what it can do for the people. The golf games, the fundraisers, and the “club” activity are all bad things in politics, and for my part, I have much better things to do with my life than to get my picture taken next to Sheriff Jones so that I can show people that I’m in “the club.” Butler County Republicans can keep their Club. They need to be worried about whether what they do serves the taxpayers. And if it doesn’t, such as this whole business of destroying lives just to protect “the club,” then they are doing the wrong things willingly.

And regarding that soap box derby race, even though I didn’t win the championship that day, I’d say because my family wasn’t in the “club,” I was very proud of what I did. I still have that car hanging in my garage, and I see it every day. My parents were proud of me; it was a fun day. My mom, who isn’t doing so well these days, brought it up as she was traveling down memory lane, and it was one of her good memories. And the lesson about the whole thing is that the Club might do everything to win. But people know who wins in life, and I’d rather live like that than be beholden to a bunch of corrupt people just to get the trophy. There are many kinds of winning in the world, and I view winning without the help of “the club” to be much more valuable than anything else in the world. Only weak losers need a “club” to help them along, which is precisely what we are seeing emerge in the Butler County Republican Party. And when those people are no longer with us, and the hearse goes by with their bodies headed to the graveyard, people won’t say, “look, there goes a great person who lived a great life.” They’ll say instead, “there goes a member of the “club” and one less corrupt person in the world who looked to politics to save their lazy selves from the scrutiny of public opinion.” Membership in the “club” disguises that reality from their minds, but when it is known what people really think, that is the reality that tyrants and the corrupt are hiding from with the illusion of social protocol.

Killing the Sacred Cow of Military in America: Republicans have been suckers in supporting just another big government scam that only the United Nations benefits from

This one might be a little controversial, but we must discuss it because a trick is being applied that brings conservatives to mass collectivism and partners Republicans with diabolical America-hating Democrats with common ground. This was never more obvious than the bone that was thrown into the last bill that was passed in Congress to commit trillions of dollars more in debt over the nation just to get some defense spending that Democrats pretend to protest against. But in truth, it’s a bone they always throw to the dogs of Republicans they appease time and time again out of a misplaced sentiment toward the military. I’ve never been one of those “thank you for your service” kind of people when I meet people who serve. Entry into the military for me is just another government job, and I am always weary of the power government has to command individual lives toward mass collectivism. The first thing ritually that is done in the military during boot camp is to strip people of their individual selves, the people their parents made them, shave them, give them a uniform and integrate them into the system of the military, the yes sirs, no sirs of process and the blind compliance to a culture that gives orders and soldiers are to follow them without a thought. I don’t see much of anything good about that system, and I never have. But over time, the people who hate the American way have turned such a process into a representation of morality, and I find the whole thing reprehensible. 

Of course, when people hear my thoughts on it, they are quick to say, “but they died or committed themselves to it for your freedom.” Well, that is not how our military works, as exposed during the Trump administration, specifically in North Korea. The American Constitution is what gives me freedom, and our military isn’t fighting for it; they are fighting against it. The scam is that by selling themselves as advocates of American independence, our military then gets used as the world’s police, the military that the United Nations never could legally hold, and we do all that they have no power to do themselves. We get involved in all kinds of wars dedicated to globalism and disguise it as “global security,” and while everyone is too busy following orders to question it, or Fox News is doing the latest color ceremonies dedicated to those who serve, the real villains are stirring up war all over the world and counting on American troops to advance the needs of the United Nations one world government and using our money and troops to perform the task. When we were told for years that North Korea was the biggest menace on planet earth, then within a short time of taking office, President Trump was crossing the line into North Korea and shaking hands with the basketball fan who happens to love America very much, much more was revealed than just The Art of the Deal by Trump to break down barriers to negotiation. Our military, once the League of Nations was started in Europe and the United Nations was created, was not to serve the interests of America; it was built, funded, and populated with soldiers to fulfill the needs of progressive intent and then to use the reputation of America to take the hit as imperialists. And in that way, the political left could complain about American involvement in fighting communists in Vietnam while also pushing for big government solutions like what create a big military in the first place.  By default, Republicans filled that gap, just as the plan called for. American troops were now the empire builders England used to be accused of. Meanwhile, it was just announced that Vietnam is one of the fast-growing economies in the world, on par with China, another propped-up country by the United Nations types. The wars clear out political opposition, whereas international sympathy follows in the wake, and the communist regimes then take over in running those parts of the world. 

To get Americans to support such a structure, patriotism has been used to sell it, that our children join, get a free education, learn to become supporters of woke culture, take orders, wear the uniform, and in that way, we never asked the dreadful questions as to who does the American military support? If our borders aren’t important, as the Biden administration has made clear it’s not, then who does the American military support? Well, the amount of money we have been sending to Ukraine answers that question. Our military as it is today exists to advance the needs of the United Nations and big centralized governments all over the world. And it’s not patriotic to blindly support them. We should be looking to shrink their influence into something Americans could easily control with the Second Amendment. Because under the kind of political regimes we have in America today, as we have seen from our own FBI and CIA, our military is more of a threat than something we should be celebrating blindly. 

I’ve had to talk about our local Sheriff Jones a lot lately, and many people wonder why over time, I wasn’t closer to him within the Butler County Republican Party, just north of Cincinnati, Ohio. The truth is, we used to be until we found ourselves on opposite ends of a public union issue way back in 2012. At that point, our relationship had become very strained. Then we were at an event at the Ronald Reagan Center at the Voice of America in West Chester, and as he usually does, he led the ceremonies dedicated to the military, which he is very voraciously supportive of. As I usually do at these events, I shudder at the blind compliance that such people like him have to the saluting of the troops, the perfection of uniform compliance, and how quickly he was to accept that the individual is just a small part to a greater good, which in this case was the support of a military with the mask of the American flag on it. I have seen him perform such ceremonies at Republican events many times. Still, that particular time at the Ronald Reagan Center gave me the creeps, not just about him. Still, in how many people who call themselves Republicans are so quickly enticed like moths to the flame in supporting military service without a clear understanding of how that military service actually protects our Constitution when in fact, the people who most benefit from our military around the world want to see our Constitution destroyed. And there are plenty of Sheriff Jones types all over the nation, on Fox News, in every local parade, who sell the military to the public as something good. But I see it and always have as dangerous to the ideas of American values and the eventual erosion of Constitutional protections. Just as we saw during Covid, and forever supporters of the expansion of the NDAA, our military is the first body of government that often violates the Constitution they were sworn to protect. But in blindly supporting the orders of superiors, our own children are often used to shred that Constitution at every opportunity, especially when globalist forces like the United Nations declare something to be an emergency. Then, our military is turned on us, and we learn too late that it never served America. Our military serves the aims of globalism, and they have tricked us into supporting such a move by draping the flag over the effort and talking about sacrifice as if we were a civilization of bloodthirsty Aztecs. And we learn too late that our military never served us at all, but a sinister collection of globalism who fund the efforts of politics and have captured our elected officials in ways we could never have imagined. And because of blind patriotism, we never see the problem until it’s too late, and they are on our doorsteps kicking in our doors and violating our constitutional rights with a smile on their faces because they took us as suckers, and we proved them correct.
