Thanksgiving Wishes: One of America’s Best Holidays

Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate what we value most. So at this time, I offer this wish I put onto social media.

And to that effect, the Bible is a place to reflect on what we value most. Enjoy the turkey. Tomorrow we go hunting for the bad guys! And the payment for their sins and scandal will be owed to our yearning hearts.

Where the Caves of Lakota Go: The evils of following process instead of logic

At the last Lakota school board meeting, approval on the payout of a lawsuit for $15,000 had to be voted upon over the procedural misconduct to remove public comment from an October meeting that had occurred. It was an easy victory for the person who filed the legal action; everyone knew it at the time, just as there are many explorations into further actions due to the actions of the board. I remember when this whole story about the superintendent of Lakota schools broke and his messy divorce, and his personal behavior that clearly didn’t align with the values of the community he worked in as a public figure, I was curious how the information would flow through the known communication channels of our community. After all, I knew all the characters involved at every level, so I was curious if the dye was poured into the cave water, where it would come out on the other end. Would it be where we expected, or would it duck and dive only to come out someplace surprising? And in the process of these many months, it looks like as the dye moved through the Caves of Lakota, through the various government bodies of our community, we ended up with a new decision, what to do about the obvious case of “intimidation of witnesses” as defined by the “intent to coerce a witness not to report information.”  And perhaps the most audacious exchange at that meeting was not the sudden revelation about financial stability through 2025, suddenly, but the lashing out of board member Kelly Casper toward Darbi Boddy about who board members represent and who they don’t. Darbi got it right, and Kelly had it all wrong when Darbi said of herself that she represented members of the community who had elected her for the purpose of board business in so many words or less. Kelly disagreed and stated that Darbi was elected to represent everyone in the community. And in that simple disagreement, we could clearly see the misunderstandings that had been costing Lakota schools so much mismanagement, expensive mismanagement. And why bad things happened in the first place that taxpayers were always on the hook for fixing. Darbi Boddy was sent to the board by the public to get control of the school board. Not to get along with the people who traditionally screwed everything up. 

In the case of Lakota, the bad, expensive things that have happened to support the antics of their superintendent, who has mismanaged his life and then turned on the community with hostile threats to suppress the information, the most significant faults were in the desire for people in the process to follow the directions that were written by liberalism and that there value system was in obeying the rules, not in deciding if the rules were applicable, or needed to be challenged. We see this in trustee meetings all the time when they rubber stamp the latest Agenda 21 roundabout or a bike path meant to prevent cars from burning fossil fuels just to get a loaf of bread at the grocery. Community planners are all trained at the same liberal sources baked into everything they do; all over the country, progressive policies are then approved by conservative politicians who believe their job is to be good administrators of the rules and to follow instructions. They never seem to understand or question whether liberals or conservatives wrote the rules and if they should be following them. Not that I was surprised, but I watched with great curiosity at every level how all the people I knew, from the police department to the school board, and the media, followed strange liberal rules and procedures right into a situation that escalated everything into a public menace that only enraged the public, and did nothing to quell the original problems. 

And it was that pesky problem again, which always comes up when the rule of law is applied to mass society in the wake of so much progressive influence over several years now, decades, really. As the Bible has been removed from being a foundation of law and order, the values that built America, to begin with, we have seen bureaucratic pinheads stepping in as the administrative state to replace the Biblical concepts of God in society, and therefore all sense of value for what a community can agree on. No wonder Nancy Pelosi could lie to our faces during a press conference about her crazy husband, that keeps getting into all kinds of trouble, or the mass media conspiracy regarding the Hunter Biden laptop. Or that there was no evidence of election fraud, even though the evidence, like this case in Lakota, was dripping everywhere with plenty of things to consider. The liberal denial of a fact was proposed because logic had been surrendered to the values of process control. Value wasn’t based these days on the judgment of an individual mind; it was built entirely in progressive processing around compliance with what was created by controls. Therefore, the value wasn’t in thinking about what was happening, but it was complying with the rules which were created to follow. So long as everyone followed the rules written for them, they could feel that their actions were moral and fulfilled a sense of justice from their point of view. But those in the community who expected community values to be conservative and to respect at least the foundations of Biblical understanding, the glue that holds western civilization together, found the decisions reprehensible.  More and more these days, these Biblical references come up as the source of the solution to our many social problems. I had always considered that everyone, regardless of their politics, functioned from that basic premise. However, I started to notice when I was in a hotel in 2014 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, that it was missing the Bible in the hotel room and that more courtrooms, school systems, and even swearing-in ceremonies were going in the direction of the sports players who refused to stand for the National Anthem. There was a real progressive push to remove western civilization from the practice of any value judgments. At the heart of that was the Bible, essentially 1400 years of establishing laws that built western civilization. And once those values were removed from the decision-making process, even conservative people, or people who think they are conservatives, found that value judgments were reduced to just following the rules of a process. And if liberals wrote the processes, then it didn’t matter if the people participating in those decisions were liberals or conservatives; they would all act the same if the path to resolution centered on compliance with a process instead of the judgment of the parties involved. And in that way, we learned that there were many hidden chambers where the dye went before it came out of the cave in strange places. And that information is extremely valuable. Then, looking back at how the community has divided over this issue makes a lot more sense. The compliance track thinks it is permissible to punish the community for deviating from the process that allows public officials to game the system at significant taxpayer cost. While the public functioning from traditional value judgments of right and wrong as established Biblically, as the foundation of our entire society, found the proposals reprehensible. The good news is that while functioning at the Supreme Court level, our court system still lives by such Biblical ideas and that the rule of law is our Constitution. Even while the progressive-minded would like that not to be the case and would love to throw their political enemies in jail, or take them to court over frivolous litigation, the truth of the matter is that in those places, the Bible still matters.   Because if people don’t believe in that, then you can’t have the basic tenants of civil society. And under that view of the law, harassing the public for discussing evidence is witness intimidation, which opens a whole new can of worms.

Why People Are So Angry at Lakota Schools: The attempt to edit public comment over a fight they started by trying to force Darbi Boddy to resign

I offered Matt Miller, the much-talked-about superintendent of Lakota schools, a way to fix everything. Through his lawyer, I offered some friendly advice which it was obvious that he chose to ignore by the way the Lakota school board meeting on November 21st, 2022, went. I told him that many of the problems he finds himself in could be solved by restoring his relationship with Darbi Boddy. After all, he and his conspirators started all the anger. I know Darbi Boddy; she wanted to join the school board and work well with everyone there. But liberalism doesn’t work, and when she joined, there was still goofy talk of mask mandates and other Covid nonsense that came straight out of the crooked Biden administration, and people in my community were sick of it. And when Matt Miller went after her to push her into resignation, he opened up a whole can of worms, and he greatly angered the community, as did the rest of the school board who stood behind the effort. If that same school board is upset that all they have been able to do at meetings for much of 2022 is talk about community anger, they can only blame themselves. They brought all the politics into the matter and tried to destroy our newly elected school board member. Darbi is a fighter, and she wasn’t going to take that. Nobody should have expected her to. All this happened before anybody knew much of anything about the Lakota superintendent’s personal life. Once people realized what kind of guy he was, for the conservatives in the Lakota district, that was a final straw. But it all started with Matt Miller picking a fight with Darbi Boddy, then several other community members with what can only be called, “witness intimidation” which absolutely won’t be stood for, it could only be solved if he reached out and tried to work with her in some productive way at this point. Instead, he dug in even more, which was ultimately the wrong move. I tried to tell him. 

Over the previous weekend, I had been involved in a Twitter discussion with Sheree Paolello, the news anchor at Channel 5. The topic was over why the media wouldn’t cover the Matt Miller story at Lakota with the assumption that they had a moral obligation to protect children from indications that showed parents they should worry about it in the district. Sheree surprisingly defended her station. She answered that the police chose not to prosecute, so there was nothing illegal to pursue. The Lakota school board took no action to penalize the superintendent. And the media ultimately bought the school board’s report without question, even though a lot of information indicated otherwise. And there was so much anger from community members because all their safety nets had let them down.

For many people, the anger was that all these institutionalized systems had no interest in protecting the kids from the strange lifestyles of the Lakota administrators, but their complete concern was in protecting the institution itself from the judgment of the community. This is a strange case for me because I literally know everyone involved. I’ve met Sheree several times over the years, and I certainly know the reporter she referred to, Karin Johnson, who covered the Lakota story. I have a pretty good understanding of why everyone took the positions they did regarding Lakota schools.   It’s all about damage control and what they perceive that damage to be. For them, the school and its reputation are more significant than the individual kids and their families who attend the school. But the school itself, and institutionalism in general, is very progressive and ultimately anti-family, and that is the biggest takeaway from this ordeal. The parents want to believe that the school has the best interests of their children when they send them to school. But the school is essentially a liberal playground for progressive politics, and the kids serve as a shield against the bad behavior of the adults. And to Sheree’s point, none of that is illegal. It may be wrong, but it wasn’t a news story because it wasn’t illegal, as determined by a police representative who has a reputation for abusing the law for personal power reasons—for instance, the case of Roger Reynolds, which is happening in that same school district presently.

I remember the good ol’ days when if a public official, like a school superintendent, is, had an affair and got caught in a divorce, that it would have been enough to cause a scandal. This separation of personal behavior from professional roles is a new thing within the last decade. Most people in the Lakota district never accepted it and haven’t had much experience dealing with it. So they naturally assume that bad behavior would equal a bad report card professionally and that everyone would take it seriously.   But that’s not the kind of liberalism that is taught in all public schools these days. Progressive politics is all about a job as a right and mandatory pay without regard to performance. In the eyes of the typical liberal, they believe they should be able to do anything in their personal lives and still be looked at professionally by the title over their door, not the individual behavior they conduct. This is the source of much trouble across the nation right now at just about every level of government occupation, and it’s a value system that just isn’t going to work. This trouble started in the 90s when Bill Clinton tried to tell the nation he could still be president even though he had an affair with an intern. After all, it was just sex. He could still be president, right? And when progressive activists started protesting the removal of the Ten Commandments from courtrooms. The problem is, if you remove the Bible from society’s values, then no law and order have any meaning, leaving it to lawyers to define the words on paper, not the value behind them. And that’s how we get to the mess we are in now.

Most of the people who are outraged at the Lakota story of protecting their superintendent from the obvious bad behavior he created for himself are those who still look to the Bible for their fundamental value behind the rule of law. Suppose there isn’t a foundation of essential value. In that case, you can’t have a society, which is just another aspect of failed progressive philosophies taught in public schools to the detriment of the children involved, which is a major problem in our modern times. And those people expect that the people they are dealing with, the police, the media, and the school board itself, are functioning from basic understandings of value, and what reality presented to them is a point of view where values weren’t even a consideration. Instead, they get interpretations of the law that is not rooted in any Biblical frame of reference, so if the words aren’t explicitly written down to say something is bad or criminal, then even an average lawyer feels they can relieve a client of guilt under such circumstances, even if they know them to be extremely guilty by all other social measures. And so it goes and will continue. School board meetings will continue to be dysfunctional because the community has a much higher standard than what the institution of Lakota, the police, or the media are willing to represent. They accepted these new progressive values for social discourse, and that is not where the community is or will ever be. The core of our nation is the decision to move away from a Biblical foundation for value systems behind law and order. We all know progressives want to destroy that concept, but people are not ever going to accept that, just like they were never going to accept progressive mask mandates over a government-created crisis which Covid turned out to be. So, we have the clash that we are seeing in Lakota and other school districts across the nation. And that fissure is very real. It won’t be fixed by ignoring the problem or hiring a public relations firm to clean it up. People have standards, and they will apply them to the world around them, and they have been let down by the characters involved in this Lakota story, and they are furious because of it.

Making The Butler County Republican Party Great Again: People don’t want to think of Boss Hogg when they think of politics

At first, I thought of the complaints as leftovers from contentious issues that have divided the party, such as the Thomas Hall battle with Matt King and the obvious rift with Sheriff Jones and Roger Reynolds. I tend to view those kinds of things as family squabbles within a household. Usually, people get over things and move on, which was happening with that nice event for Thomas Hall. But when people who don’t usually deal with the Butler County Republican Party are complaining, they don’t know about the details, only their experience with it. And that experience has not lived up to the reputation of the past, where Butler County had a lot of volunteers, high engagement, and the kind of national reputation that made President Trump want to come and campaign in the area. But the reputation that was developing, because of all the rifts from leadership that was flowing out into state and federal politics, was not a good one. For a community of over 400,000 people, small-town politics was back in fashion where a few party leaders had turned the wonderful Butler County Republican Party into something that would make Boss Hogg from the Dukes of Hazzard blush. And that was embarrassing to hear. I had been hoping that after the 2022 election, many of those trends would level out and that much of the problem had been not having the unifying factor of Trump to rally behind. Without Trump, the party has reverted back to the differences that it had during the early 2000s. But now that Trump was running again, my hope was that the party would unite again behind him. However, this time there appeared to be a different kind of problem. Many older people in leadership now are in the way of younger and hungrier personalities, and those elements feel restricted in their ambitions, which is not a good thing for future growth.

This problem reminded me of the Cincinnati Bengals and how the Brown family just can’t get out of their own way for success. Sure, they have had some good players over the years, but they just have not been able to put together a successful string of seasons to show fabulous organizational presence. They went to the Super Bowl last year and had a pretty good season. They had the whole off-season to get better and improve on the previous year with essentially the same players. The Bengals invested in a new offensive line, but the results were not good. The quarterback, Joe Burrow, has been sacked more than any other NFL quarterback. So the Bengals didn’t get better because the problems with the Bengals were in their coaching and front office. Not the players on the field. So if leadership was always the problem, the Bengals didn’t help themselves by investing in an offensive line; if they didn’t have the kind of coaches who could take advantage of those improvements, then, of course, the problem would still present itself as a problem. Obviously, the Butler County Republican Party was having the same issues. Many new talents are coming into the party who can network and connect with the world. There are lots of MAGA Republicans across the state who are newly engaged in politics and are looking for jobs to do. But then, when they interact with Butler County, we have this Boss Hogg image that people have of our elderly leadership, and it turns them off, and it’s starting to show to the outside world. 

It was good to see a nice GOP event in Butler County dedicated to a victory celebration for Thomas Hall at the Majors Barn. It was a tough election season, and some hard feelings emerged during that race, which clearly split the Butler County Republican Party in half. But several people supported Matt King, who ran against Thomas for the 46th Representative Ohio seat. They were there to congratulate Thomas and to show leadership in coming together as a party now that the election was over. There were people there that I could speak with where things got pretty heated, and we had some nice conversations, and everyone made up. I know everyone couldn’t come, people were busy, but you could tell a lot about Republican Party leadership by who was there and who wasn’t. I can tell you someone, who was there, Roger Reynolds, was, and we had a nice conversation about the horrendous problem that was happening to him. I asked him if Sheriff Jones was going to pay for all his massive legal bills for the phony trial coming up for him in December of 2022, which to me looks like a complete political hit job. That is not the kind of thing that makes the Republican Party better, but something that has made it worse. Roger kind of smiled at me and shrugged his shoulders. He’s one of the good guys, and his only focus was on getting that mess behind him so he could live his life again. And Thomas and I spoke about the new Speaker of the House and what an excellent relationship those two had together, which was encouraging. Good things were happening. But I also received reports from some of the state people and the federal people who deal with Republican parties all over the country. Their impression of the Butler County Republican Party was not a good one. There were a lot of complaints about engagement, phone calls, appreciation letters, and just basic organization, and while I kept up a happy face inside, I was pretty mad. I am proud of the Butler County Republican Party and don’t like hearing people say bad things about it. 

Hey, I get it; we all get older. You look in the mirror and what looks back is a person falling apart. Age can be cruel. And when the dog doesn’t respect you, and your wife is complaining about you leaving your socks in the corner by the bathroom, and nobody thinks you’re all that special, it can feel great to go to a Party meeting and have everyone worship you for all the things you have done in your life. It’s hard to be big enough to get out of the way and let younger people step in and show their ambitions.   That has always been the Bengals problem; the Brown family has always gotten in the way of its own success. And that is what is happening with the Butler County Republican Party. It’s not just from the direction of the police, but there are commissioners, trustees, and many others who are holding positions as placeholders, then getting mad at the youth for nipping at their heels. And my advice to them, the elders, is if you really love the Republican Party, you would want to do the right thing, and that is to get out of the way and let those with the most ambition and freshest eyes step into leadership positions. Sometimes being a great leader is in getting out of the way. And hanging on to the past and living off a reputation to hide the aging process from your own eyes isn’t love. It’s selfish, and the only result is that you become the latest Boss Hogg in the world and become known not for good deeds but for corruption and ill-advised political fights that ruin everything a lifetime took to build.

Clay and Buck Avoid the Obvious: If you aren’t talking about election fraud, you aren’t serious about solving election problems in America

Of course, there was election fraud, massive amounts of it. And it makes sense if you understand the nature of those who want to be in power. The temptation is all too real for them. The foreign influence in our elections in America is a serious problem that nobody wants to discuss because they like the money, and it fits into their view of things. But I found it stunning to listen to Clay Travis and Buck Sexton try to talk about the election results of 2022 without talking about election fraud. They wanted to talk about everything, but what wasn’t the problem. Voter engagement, policy communication, ballot harvesting, and why Republicans need to get on board with the exact mechanisms, like get-out-the-vote campaigns at gun shows and country music concerts. But none of that will matter if Democrats, and specifically rival foreign powers, have control of our election system and can essentially put anybody they want into power despite who we vote for, just by cheating the margins in states where loose voting laws still allow for the Covid mail-in ballots days ahead of an election. And with such a mechanism with loose restrictions on who can vote and how many times they can, the essence of that election fraud problem is built into our elections these days. The media culture that protects it is this margin-beating assumption where the vote counters know the trends and can then know how to stuff the ballots to tip their pick over the top. That clearly happened in Arizona with Katie Hobbs and Kari Lake. And until that issue is dealt with, nobody is really serious about winning honest elections. You can’t win if you are not allowed to cross the finish line. 

I generally like Clay and Buck, who have replaced Rush Limbaugh on his Excellence in Broadcasting radio show starting at noon on radio stations all over the United States. They are pretty good, and if Rush Limbaugh were alive today, he would likely agree with me. I think Clay and Buck get it, too, with the microphones turned off, as most Republicans do. But for anybody with a corporate media gig, they know that election fraud is off-limits. Every communication company with some relationship with the World Economic Forum has put a wet blanket around any talk of election fraud because that is how they stay in power. That is how they plan to implement all their big ideas for world domination by the year 2030. If they can’t control elections, they can’t perform their plans for the Great Reset, which is complete control of the world’s economies, and to surrender all human activity to the pagan cult of Earth Worship represented in today’s climate change. I’ve been saying it for a long time. I don’t make a living off corporate media, so I don’t care what they think of me. But people who work for some big media companies, including local outlets, know the rules, and election fraud is off-limits. Yet, given the obvious nature of it in this 2022 election, it was stunning to listen to these two smart guys talk for a week after the election about everything but the actual problem. It doesn’t matter how nice Republicans are or how much ballot harvesting there is. When you count votes as Katie Hobbs did for our Arizona governor campaign, nobody will ever win elections again unless they kiss the ring of the Desecrators of Davos. And if that limits voter engagement in the future, that only helps the bad guys because it makes it easier to control who wins, which has been the case where the evidence has been pointing for decades. This isn’t just a 2020 thing. 

In every race, many of which are still counting votes for election day of 2022 by Thanksgiving, weeks later, the slow counts are all about ballot drops which they calculate how many phony ballots have to be inserted into that next drop to knock off the percentages for the rival. For instance, in the case of the ballot drops for Kari Lake, it was known that if she got 60% of the rural vote, she would easily win as Governor of Arizona. So the vote counters put into those ballot drops, each one based on the result of the previous one, inserted double counts, dead people, drug addicts who traded drugs for a filled-out ballot in a Walmart parking lot, which would then water down the margin for whoever they are counting. In the case of Kari Lake, therefore, she trended in the 50s, not the 60s, and that allowed Katie Hobbs to hold her lead from the city votes and squeak out a very narrow win. Everywhere we see these very narrow wins, this is the process of what is happening. The vote counters look at the results of each ballot drop, and they are mixing bad ballots for their chosen candidate in the following drop to count and wear away the opposition. It will be easy for Kari Lake to challenge those votes in a hand recount because the cheating was blatant. Katie Hobbs couldn’t afford to lose, nor could Democrats in general, and they didn’t care who noticed because corporate media had set up a cover fire to keep the questions from even being asked. 

Not that it’s a massive conspiracy, but this is the Vico Cycle I’m always talking about entirely at work. Of course, the kind of people who want to have power over others will protect a system where an aristocracy can rule over the many, and the type of people who crave such a life are very many. They don’t want a merit-based system where actual performance puts people in power. And you’ll find that most corporations are filled with these kinds of people. Most people hold their noses and give up a lot of their personal integrity to get along with the people who rule in their society at whatever level they are participating. For all the reasons that Clay and Buck, so they could be on the air and continue to do their show on corporate media platforms and continue to be contributors on Fox News, they have no choice but to play along with the narrative, and that is actually part of this cheat mechanism. If people want to get paid, they’ll shut their mouths, protect their place in this untalked-about aristocracy, and be happy about it. Just as nobody was supposed to question the Joe Biden vaccine mandates flowed down through human resource compliance paths. This means of controlling speech by essentially controlling the means of earning a living and whether a critic can have a job is appalling. If Rush Limbaugh were still doing that show, he would talk about election fraud. He was independent enough to push back against his corporate sponsors, whereas Clay and Buck just don’t have that personal power, and few people do. That is why preserving this aristocratic rule over the many is so enticing. Once power seekers find themselves in the comfort of that club, they will do anything to protect it, including lie, cheat and steal. And even if they know something to be fake, such as election results, they will hold their nose and put up with it because they want to keep working for the very types of people who are committing the crime.

Trump 2024: It’s a battlefield, not a beauty pageant

It was interesting to see the public reaction once Trump announced, as we always knew he would, his next run for the presidency.   The Never Trumper types, the loser Paul Ryan types, the Republicans who, for instance, congratulated Nancy Pelosi into the club of former Speakers of the House as if they were all in some equal club of malcontents and sell-outs to our nation. And immediately, there was a press narrative trying to push Ron DeSantis into the presidential race to keep Trump out or pit those two together for brand damage to both people in a bloody Republican primary. The Fox News crowd certainly falls into that category. And of course, just as predicted, Joe Biden sent his corrupt Department of Justice after Trump for further phony investigations where abuse of the law by the government against political rivals has become commonplace. And immediately, the narrative that was flowed out by the establishment types in Washington D.C. was that the Republican Party, based on the poor showing by Trump in endorsed candidates was that the country was ready to move on from Trump and give the Republican Party back to the SWAMP to the political consultant class, the know-nothings of political pundits. The people who make money off the chaos of politics, their message was DeSantis, and other Republican governors had shown they could be Trump without all the drama and that it was time for them to run for President in 2024. Trump had his time, and it was time to leave and ride off into the sunset. 

I listened to such ignorance with a smile on my face. It’s amazing how many people who make a living with politics miss entirely what the objective of it truly is. Politics is a battlefield of ideas. It’s not a beauty pageant where pretty people try on clothes and parade in front of financial donors for approval and ultimately entertain “that” audience, the FTX types in the world, who give money and dance to the songs they wish to hear. Politics is about the rule of law and its application to our mass society in a functional way. And our political mechanisms have been stolen from us by that same financial class of liberal malcontents hiding behind corporate boardrooms promoting an end to the constitution in America and the subservience of every human being to the whims of globalism. The people who think they know better about everything because they hold all the bags of gold, by whatever means they obtained them. Whether it George Soros, the hedgefund domestic terrorist, FTX essentially selling nothing with a massive cryptocurrency scam that has been funding Democrats to run against the MAGA movement, or Larry Fink from BlackRock who has taken money from Jerome Powell’s Desecrators of Davos sentiments generated through quantitative easing with the Federal Reserve and used all that phony money to buy up stock to America’s biggest corporations to gain control of their Boards, and impose ESG standards on them that is ruining the world with woke policies. There are many bad characters wrapped up in politics who need to be defeated, embarrassed, and run off the face of the earth, and electing Ron DeSantis isn’t going to do the trick. They plan to get rid of Trump, then all these MAGA candidates that they haven’t been able to defeat with election fraud can then be picked off one by one until the SWAMP is back in control again, and Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset can then be implemented. The only reason that Never Trumpers are in a panic to stop Trump any way they can with some lighter brand of Republicans is in the hope of dividing and conquering so as not to lose their grip on the political strings of power that people behind Trump are threatening to capture. 

I think there will be a day when Ron DeSantis, Kari Lake, and many others can run for President of the United States and do well. But now is not the time. We have learned a lot over the last decade, specifically how little our government actually belongs to the people in charge of it. Most branches of government do not do the will of the people who vote but the will of the people who finance everything. And largely, those are foreign interests or interests that are American but gave up on the idea of a sovereign nation long ago and are entirely behind globalism in all its forms. Because of his financial freedom as a billionaire, Trump is one of the only people in the world who is in a position to fight this specific kind of battle. I’ve said it many times; we have Ron DeSantis because of Trump. We don’t have Trump because of Ron DeSantis. Without Trump to pave the way and draw all the cover fire, Ron DeSantis would have just been an average governor in Florida. Before Trump came along, the liberal elements of our society attacked viciously any Tea Party type of reformer that came along, and the list has been long. In all his wild ways, Trump made it possible for Ron DeSantis to do great work in Florida because Trump drew all the cover fire, and anybody who thinks there won’t be hostile fire upon a Republican candidate for President is kidding themselves. The fight is vicious and determined. It’s the way of life for the bad guys to destroy their opposition. And if Republicans aren’t playing that same game, they will always lose. 

I am quite happy with the election results of 2022. When people say they are disappointed, they mean they had hoped to see the Democrat Party completely destroyed and Joe Biden heading to jail. I don’t think Joe Biden will ever go to jail; there is too much corruption from the top down to send a criminal like him to jail, which is where he belongs for the sedition he has knowingly performed against our constitutional republic. Joe Biden has knowingly attempted to destroy America for globalist interests, which is our real fight. He is not our President; he’s the President representing China and, ultimately, the Desecrators of Davos. He is far more loyal to Klaus Schwab and his intentions of doom than he is to some oil worker in Pennsylvania. But in my eyes, the Democrat Party is destroyed. Public relations tricks and corporate media only prop up the Henry Kissinger version of globalism that has seduced the Brit Hume types that have built his life around as a pundit on Fox News. The Democrat Party and its ideas have only been held together through media tricks and election fraud for many years now, and it has only been Trump that has exposed it through the pressure of competition. And because Trump doesn’t have to raise money in the traditional ways, he cannot be bought and controlled by anybody, which is why those types of people hate him so passionately because Trump is free of them. Ron DeSantis isn’t going to have his own 757 private jet anytime soon and a private residence that is so spectacular to dwarf the White House in splendor. Trump is willing to carry America on his independent back and give the Republican Party the branding it needs as an America First political force. Literally, the entire world is against it. It is the fight of our lives, and we must treat it that way. Not some entertainment spectacle that is only meant to show off some political people owned by the financial class of people who give a lot of money and expect the destruction of America in return. Only President Trump is willing to fight that fight for what it is, and for anybody who wants to win in that battle, there is only one path to get there, and that is through Trump.

Yes, There was a Massive Red Wave: What we learned after the sand washed away

Yes, there was a red wave, and all kinds of interesting games spawned because of it. But the bottom line of the election of 2022 was that the massive red wave, where millions and millions more Republican voters engaged in the voting process, particularly in House races, exposed an enormous election fraud mechanism endorsed by the establishment figures of both parties and has now left an awkward sentiment in the wake. Now we know why for the last decade and more, there was a push for early voting; it was so those scam artists working for the political establishments could get an understanding of how voters were voting and tip the scales on election day to put their choice over the top. And who were their forces representing, well, the Desecrators of Davos, the money people from the World Economic Forum who thoroughly understood their need to control global elections to implement their doom strategy indicated in the Klaus Schwab book, The Great Reset. They have known for a long time that their plans for global domination and the end of all sovereign states would not be possible unless they could control elections in the United States. So early voting disguised as “voter empowerment” became the strategy of modern elections and the benefit to the foreign forces who most desired outcomes they controlled. 

Statistically speaking, there is no way there are so many races almost two weeks from the November 2022 elections that are so close to calling that a winner could not be determined. In the end, Republicans did the essential thing: to take back the House of Representatives and end the terrible career of Nancy Pelosi. That was always the first step after the previous two elections, where Democrats representing the Desecrators of Davos in America made aggressive moves to gain power seats as a natural reaction to President Trump. Their actions were so aggressive that they often overplayed their hands, much more so than when Obama was in the White House. When Trump was President, the forces against America made angry moves that were obvious to those looking. And the election fraud schemes that had been in place for many years were suddenly being noticed. In the old days, we wondered how an election in Florida could be so close until Ron DeSantis won the governor race by a very narrow margin, then reformed those who counted ballots. Once he did that in 2018, by 2022, even Miami Dade moved toward Republicans. One part of it is that Ron DeSantis has been a great governor. But it’s more than that. Even Marco Rubio trended above typical Republican voting patterns. The elephant in the room was that votes were being appropriately managed, not illegally, and that showed the true sentiment of the nation during elections. Florida went from being a purple state to a clearly red one. As good as DeSantis has been, people don’t change that much in just one election cycle. Instead, a better count of the votes on election day showed what the republic truly wanted. 

I had the opportunity recently to be sitting at the table of a fancy shindig with Frank LaRose, Ohio’s Secretary of State, and I asked him about election fraud and how he was managing it. After our conversation, I was convinced that Ohio had a pretty good system to defend against election fraud. But also, after talking to him, and Frank is a very competent person, I thought that if each state in America didn’t have its own version of him, then election fraud would be an all too tempting target for foreign attackers to exploit those states with election controls. Kemp was able to get decent results out of Georgia, where Stacy Abrams wasn’t even close this time, because of election reform, where they made it easier to vote but harder to cheat. And the situation in Arizona was extremely obvious, where Katie Hobbs was running for governor against Kari Lake, and Hobbs presided over her own election. There were so many problems in Arizona that lawsuits and security scrutiny over the election would go on for years. But that election fraud was the key to the Democrat strategy cannot be overlooked as they were caught red-handed in the effort. The difference between a Frank LaRose in Ohio and a Katie Hobbs in Arizona clearly shows the danger of not having the right people counting votes. When variables like early voting, mail-in ballots through ridiculous Covid rules, and discrepancies with digital voting machines are all thrown into the mix, there are many opportunities for election fraud. It happens much more than anybody wants to admit. There is no excuse for all the close races this time around other than the Desecrators of Davos know that people are on to their scam, primarily implemented through the Democrat Party but contained in the messaging of corporate media and establishment Republicans like Mitch McConnell. They couldn’t afford for Republicans to take over all the Houses of congress and start getting control of all these states, like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, California, etc. Because if Republicans gained power in those places, then the Desecrators of Davos would lose their ability to manipulate American elections. 

Yet, due to the overwhelming number of Republicans who voted in 2022, the footprints of election fraud were clearly seen this time. Early voting, and mail-in voting, were always schemes to incite election fraud and to control which political party controlled the government in America. And the truth that has been revealed, especially in states who gained control of election fraud within a reasonable percentage over the last several years, such as Ohio, Texas, Florida, and Georgia, is that the obvious result has been that Republicans suddenly jump out to comfortable leads because the vote represents the true intentions of the voters. We would see the same kind of ratio in even California if proper voting regulations were put in place and maintained. The proof of the fraud is in how so many close races ended up leaning toward Republicans even when early voting showed what margins Democrats had to achieve through fraud to overcome the Republicans. But on same-day voting, Democrats got it wrong and didn’t quite have enough to put their candidate over the top. That is the only way to explain why even after two weeks, were surges on election day helped Republicans overcome the margin, that many races were uniquely too close to call. A few of those types of races around the country would be believable. But a surplus of them is not possible. Statistically, to have so many elections as close as they are, you have a better chance of being hit in the head by an asteroid today. Rather, the statistics point to an election fraud mechanism that was busted by the massive red wave that did occur, with millions more voters washing away what had been hidden under the sand for many years now. This 2022 election exposed a treacherous plot by foreign interests using domestic terrorists to steal American elections to dismantle our country. Which is a crime; it’s treason and sedition and is punishable by more than jail. And they have been caught. So, the question now is, what are we going to do about it?

The Liberalism Behind ‘Avatar Way of Water’: It won’t turn out the way Disney hopes

Usually, the people reading the tea leaves on television and radio get it all wrong because the leaves they are reading aren’t the right ones. I would suggest a different approach: to read the leaves of media currents themselves and to study what the public likes and doesn’t like as a much more accurate measure. And to that effect, much of where the world is going by way of populism, corporate control, and the way many treacherous characters hide their acts of malice behind liberal causes are on a crash course with destiny and collapsed diabolical intent. With that in mind, I’m talking about the new Avatar film, Way of Water, as if the world is being steered back to nature, into some oriental wisdom from the ancient past to reveal to our modern selves how far we have fallen from the tree. Because the tea leaves that Jim Cameron, the director and writer of the film, and the parent company of the new Avatar films, Disney, are reading the tea leaves of a wilted plant from the past that has long died. The world is a much different place from when the first Avatar movie came out, which earned a record-breaking 2 billion dollars at the box office. I was doing some work with Hollywood then, specifically with RealD 3D, so I knew what many producers and distributers wanted to do with 3D to convince movie goers to put their butts in seats instead of staying home watching movies on their magnificent home theater systems. And the first Avatar movie benefited from a good story, a great filmmaker, and outstanding cutting-edge 3D technology. But people at that time were comfortable with their lives; they trusted that America would always be there and that government wasn’t nearly as corrupt as we know it to be now. And the World Economic Forum was something that nobody knew much of anything about. People lived their lives and were open to strange ideas about environmentalism because there was room in a comfortable life to accept such ideas, so long as they could go home in their gas-powered car and had a full bank account. Church on Sunday put their minds to ease about what would happen tomorrow. 

It will be interesting to watch how audiences accept this new Avatar movie, released over a decade after the first. Disney hopes it will make a lot of money like the first, but I think it will be far short of the original. As will the subsequent films that are already planned will be. People will go see the movie for the same reason they are waiting in line for more than two hours to ride the magnificent ride at Disney World’s Animal Kingdom because they want to step out of their lives and into a unique experience. The Avatar ride at Animal Kingdom in Florida is one of the most outstanding technical achievements I have ever seen for human imagination. The whole Avatar land there is a monument to what the human imagination can produce, and I think it’s great. But, the cat is out of the bag now on Disney and Jim Cameron, who are both much more liberal than they used to be, and the country of America isn’t that liberal. The Desecrators of Davos “back to nature” message is not the priority for the people living in the world. With an overt message of environmentalism versus technical achievement, humans tend to cheer on the products of their minds, not the pagan superstitions of the past, which is the true intent of liberalism and its desire to reset the Vico Cycle into anarchy and back to a theocracy where nature is worshipped as the modern Earth Goddess. The first Avatar walked a very fine line between overt lectures about the terrors of corporate greed and the majesty of nature’s wisdom. And that redeeming message is the heart of the Desecrators of Davos plan to unite all the corporations of the world behind their pagan religions and to drag everyone in the world who uses those products with them to the Liberal World Order priorities for existence. 

It’s not that the new Avatar film The Way of Water will be boring. I’m sure that after ten years of making the movie, Jim Cameron has done some great things in film. But the message itself, this Dances with Wolves in space concept of rejecting technology for the idea that we are all cells within the body of something greater than ourselves, is a political message that people don’t want to hear. It’s been crammed down their throats for a long time now. Since the first Avatar movie in 2009, we’ve been through the Obama presidency and all the terrible things that happened as a result. That led people to vote for Trump in 2016. And when the great America that came from the Trump administration was taken from people in 2020, the Desecrators of Davos through their election tampering, especially with Facebook, they gave us Joe Biden, an embarrassment who has declared war on fossil fuels and represents the forces which essentially want to create Pandora, the land from the Avatar films, here on earth and as a political platform. Through public relations trickery, they can attempt to show that elections are close in America, just as in other places worldwide, such as Brazil. But in reality, people do not vote against their best interests, and this evidence shows in other aspects of our culture the kind of things people choose to be entertained by.

And that’s ultimately the problem with the new Avatar films; they are essentially the Biden political platform, the new religion of the globalists around the world of earth worship, presented as entertainment behind top-level special effects and all the magic a movie theater experience can provide. There are movies scheduled all the way through Avatar 5 that I think are getting way out over their skis. If they were just entertainment, people might enjoy them. But if you have read Klaus Schwab’s books from the World Economic Forum, you would see that Avatar and Disney’s production of them is essentially the world they want to get to hear on earth; it’s a political platform and their goals for the transformation of the world. They want us all to strip down naked, make love to our animal powers, get right with nature, and bend to its will, like the characters in Avatar do. And because of that, I think people will reject the films aside from their initial spectacle and the lack of anything else to see at a movie theater. I predict that all the hard work that Jim Cameron has put into these films will ultimately be lost on a public that is sick of the politics of liberalism being pushed into their lives from every direction, especially in their entertainment. And the results will be embarrassing for Disney and Cameron in the end. It is one thing to visit the Avatar World at Animal Kingdom and to marvel at the technical achievements that essentially attempt to make a primitive life great again in the minds of the Desecrators of Davos. But when you get tired of it, you can go back to your nice hotel, get a nice meal, sit by a very modern pool, and enjoy the world of technology and business with all the audacity that American capitalism can provide. But the point of the Avatar films, and the liberalism behind them, is to get rid of that comfort and to return mankind to a primitive state, so there is nowhere else to go. And people don’t like that message at all, and it will show in the box office results and, ultimately, Disney’s stock.

Microsoft Was Never Our Friend: They don’t respect our time, our productivity, or our American sovereignty

I always liked the Paper Clip guy from early versions of Microsoft Windows. He might have been irritating, but he always came across as trying to be helpful, respectful of your time, and assuming that what you needed to do on the computer you were using was valuable. That sentiment has changed over time. Microsoft is well-known as a member of the Desecrators of Davos attempt to overthrow the world. Their obvious role in the scheme is to dumb people down with nonsense and steer society globally where the Klaus Schwab types want them to go. The Microsoft of the 1990s is long gone and what has been given to us in its wake is a significant intrusion of progressive intent to change the world as we know it. Microsoft thinks it can do it because they are essentially a monopoly that touches just about every computer in the world, other than Apple, which is just as bad.

I used to love Microsoft; I was a big fan of Word, of course. But I loved Excel, Project, PowerPoint, and everything Microsoft made. I was a fan of it all. But I entered the computer age at the ground level and watched this company evolve. And that also gives me the liberty to discuss how much it has changed from its original intentions. The Microsoft of today does not respect its users. They provide constant updates whenever they decide to; they don’t care what you are working on and have no value for it. They do what they want; they speak to you through messages as if they are a parent telling you to brush your teeth before going to bed and have lost their understanding of the original company mission in the beginning. Their goal now is globalism and steering mankind into the slaughterhouse of globalism, and they intend to use their software as the bait that drags everyone to that gloomy destination.

It’s out now, Bill Gates, when he stepped away from being the boss of Microsoft just as lockdowns were happening all across America in the spring of 2020, during a big election year where a virus that was planned at Event 201, sponsored by Bill Gates himself, was released. Gates wanted to protect Microsoft from his role in the virus and designed to work on the “climate change” initiative hoping that Microsoft would be shielded from public opinion as they learned what role Gates had in managing the virus in society and what the governments of the world would do about it. But Microsoft was just another front on the culture wars attack. I had been noticing that their edit software was already attacking strong usages of pronouns and other kinds of terminology that might be considered “too aggressive” as a means to control information flow and the quality of it as determined by the Desecrators of Davos, which Bill Gates is undoubtedly one of the founding members. Microsoft was no longer concerned about the quality of the individual users’ time; they were now concerned about controlling what the particular user did and what they thought while they were interfacing with their products. The footprints of global corporatism were unleashed, and people were so in love with the Microsoft product that they didn’t notice how sinister some of the changes truly were until it was too late. Microsoft went from being a helpful friend to essentially becoming the software of the terminators from one of Jim Cameron’s science fiction doomsday films. Only they weren’t intended to kill the user, only to make them suitable, compliant soldiers of the administrative state. The lure was to get people addicted to easy pornography, and a big brother was watching the users through the software all hours of the day, anywhere in the world that they might be. 

It was a baffling experience to see how Microsoft was pushing its Teams meeting system just as the governments of the world, all looking for Bill Gates donations, thought that the way to deal with the Covid virus, a virus created in a Chinese lab by Bill Gates’ friend, Dr. Fauci, and both of them worked hard to keep medicine away from those who caught it so they could push all these new social controls like social distancing. The wearing of useless masks to fight the virus was to work from home and use Microsoft Teams to communicate instead of actually going to the office. And the media followed that assumption with talk about a New Normal, coming straight off the pages of Claus Schwab’s latest book, titled The Great Reset. From the point of view of Bill Gates, who wants a zero-emission world to save the planet from some bizarre climate change religion that takes all mankind back essentially to The Law of One, the sun worship of pagan deities from an archaic past, keeping people off the roads and at home would save the planet from those pesky humans and their gas-guzzling cars. So Microsoft Teams was there to allow people to do business in their underwear which essentially shut the world down productively for more than a year and crippled the world’s economy. The Microsoft solution was to attempt to control the messaging through their various software updates, keep the public steered toward globalism, and discourage information that might say otherwise. 

But the footprints of globalism were there from the beginning. It’s just that while the market was taking off, Microsoft needed the customers to get addicted to their product like a drug dealer might give away free samples to get people addicted to the high. In its early versions before Windows 95, Microsoft wanted to appear helpful, productive, and respectful of its users. But after Windows 95, and the complaints about the product showed this trend, people saw that Microsoft was less interested in the user market and much more interested in making the users slaves to their system since, by then, most of the world was using a version of Windows to interact with computers in whatever way they were using them. The goal from the beginning was to gain control of the time the users spent on a computer and to get them to want to do more of it. Even when reality threw obvious problems their way, they simply ignored the information and proceeded on anyway, just as they did with the concept of Teams meetings replacing real human interaction in an office space. Microsoft’s stupidity in understanding the basic nature of productivity went straight to the door of Bill Gates, who never wanted to help society live better lives with a superior product. His goal was to use the information to control productivity and to dumb down the users to the point where they wouldn’t even see what was happening to them along the way. The Paper Clip guy was an illusion all along. Microsoft never intended actually to be helpful but to bait mankind into following them into mass control from global forces. That long-hatched plan culminated when Bill Gates resigned from Microsoft upon unleashing Covid from China. Microsoft went on to do its work as built by its founder, while Bill Gates went into full Desecrators of Davos mode and joined the others who were openly looking to take over the world. Microsoft was never our friend; it was only an enemy from within from the very beginning, and it is obvious that they don’t respect our time.   They only want our minds to do what they want with them to serve interests that are not American.

Public Schools are Dens of Evil: They are anti-Family, and anti-American

It has been nice not to talk about Lakota schools much over the last several years. As a public school in my community, I think it would be fair to say that I hate them. I see them as a massive waste of time. Their employees are detriments to our community, and the institution itself is an infusion of liberalism into an otherwise very conservative community. I tend not to pay much attention to them so long as they don’t ask for money by way of increased taxes. But, over this past year, I have had my fill of their bad management, wasted money, and perverse lifestyles, and it has reminded me of why I have hated the concept of public schools for much of my life. Lakota had been experiencing declining enrollment in a community that has been aging. But the property values have been going up, so the revenue at Lakota was good and kept them from asking for more money for many years now. But they recklessly spent their surplus and have been behaving like drunken sailors and living the lifestyle of it as well. Now, much of that bad behavior has come to the surface and been a grim reminder of precisely what is bad about public education. And for me, it’s that public schools, all public schools, are anti-family. 

No matter how much history you study, how much sociology is explored, and what the contents of philosophy are, there is nothing more important to a good society than the quality of individual families. Without the concept of a good family, people are doomed, and countries are sure to fall. Speaking with the benefit of hindsight, which I have been saying for more than four decades, those who have advocated easy divorce, free babysitting in public schools for parents too busy for their children, and reckless sexual lifestyles, a culture of intoxication, and gay relationships as marriage alternatives have had the malicious intent to destroy our country, by destroying our families. It’s obvious now to most people. It wasn’t always so straightforward because it used to be that families were so strong that people took good ones for granted. And these progressive lifestyles have been slowly introduced to us over a long time through our governments, our legal system, and specifically through public education to erode the concept of the American family. For me, family has always been the most important thing in life, and I have made great sacrifices to have a good one. My wife and I homeschooled our kids when they were little in spurts. We had no family support, and socially it was very difficult. By the time my kids were seniors in high school, they were finishing off their time with computer classes and spent their senior years living in Europe to complete their educations. I always gave them the kind of education I knew they were not getting from public education or society. They are in their 30s now, and they are great kids. They are so much better because they didn’t get destroyed in public education. Looking back on it, I wish I could have kept them entirely out of public education because all it did was harm them; it certainly didn’t help.

The public education concept of letting very liberal strangers babysit and raise a family’s children has been horrible for our country. At the same time, the parents live messed up lives putting their careers, and their sexual desires ahead of raising their children in a healthy lifestyle were bad from the beginning. A marriage is a man and a woman who get together and have children. Then they fight it out for many decades together no matter what happens to provide for their children a good and stable life. Being married isn’t about your feelings or your sexual desires. It’s not about getting attention from someone outside the marriage. You get married, stay true to your spouse, and work together to raise good children in a healthy and intellectual environment. You talk as a family. You make decisions as a family. And you stick together and make a great country by being a good family.

Public education seeks to make a menace out of that concept and is a vehicle for local distribution of liberal values that are anti-family in nature. When we hear transgender discussions or sexual alternatives being introduced to kids, we see the arrogance of a public school embedded in our communities, living off taxpayers’ property values and seeking to undo the community from within with anti-family values. And they have smiles on their faces while they do their deeds. And the proof of that arrogance comes out in the lifestyle of the progressive employees. We have certainly seen the evidence at Lakota schools more than we ever wanted to know. But worse, they are intent on justifying their bad behavior with the overall mission of public schools in general, an attack on the American family and the desecration of all that stands behind the value of a mom and a dad working hard to raise good kids to make a good world and a good country. We often find with public schools that the employees themselves openly seek to destroy this concept in everything they do. Over the years, their behavior has led to the destruction of our society in all the ways we can see today. 

The idea that children belong to the state is the central premise. Of course, they never come out and say what they are thinking because if they did, the public school ruse would fall apart, as it has in Lakota. Their assurance to the busy parents is that their children are cared for by the public school and that the shared partnership of the children is something the parents can rely on. From there, over the years, the parents feel that they can do what they want and live out whatever they desire without consequences to their family because the good public school has the raising of children taken care of. But often, all too late, they realize that the public school is the cause of their problems and without the leadership of a good mom and dad and the protection of decades of long-lasting love and affection, the children end up destroyed in the process. They grow up and vote for big government to replace the parents they never had. This poor education took advantage of them like some pervert dressed in a Santa suit. They ended up empty in a wasteland of possibilities that never came to them, making them ill-prepared to have their own families. And this mess all starts with the garbage we teach our kids in public education and the losers who teach them in those horrible places. I would call them the dens of evil because their purpose is the undoing of the American family, which is the key to any great society. And their purposeful destruction of the family concept is all the evidence anybody needs of their actual intentions. Their lifestyles are only the evidence of such a dark and maniacal device, intent on the complete destruction of our way of life and putting in place a mother government that seeks to rule us all with a jealous zeal to satisfy an insatiable and corrupt heart.
