The Fight Between Yahweh and Baal: Studying the Bible to beat globalism and the nature of evil everywhere

There are a lot of people contemplating evil these days. We aren’t exactly living in a stable culture anymore. I had a person ask me about the picture on my blog with me at Jackson Hole the other day, which provoked a question about its significance. Well, the spot I was standing is where the fight in the Clint Eastwood movie Any Which Way You Can ended, with Eastwood winning in front of the entire town. And that is where I bought my white hat at Jackson Hole, Wyoming because I always loved that movie which I watched again recently. It’s not as good as Any Which Way But Loose, but it’s a fun movie about macho material and the problems men have specifically. It’s also a movie that wouldn’t be made today because woke culture has pretty much stamped it out of existence. You don’t see that movie playing on network television anymore, but twenty years ago, it was on all the time. We have a real struggle on our hands with this massive woke conglomerate that wants globalism everywhere and communism for all that is trying to impose itself on all of us. And there is a pushback from our culture against it and a return to the reverence that made movies like those old Clint Eastwood films so popular, to begin with. I loved that movie so much that I had to visit all the places where that big fight took place in the film because it met so much to me. But why, why was it so important, and what are we fighting? Many of us would call it evil. But the macho behavior that is expressed in that movie and many movies from that age was what the globalists would call evil. So, who is right?

It’s an impossible cliché to avoid when discussing evil, but the best book in the world to deal with it is the Holy Bible. I personally love the Bible; it’s been part of my life since I was very little. I grew up in church listening to “Onward Christian Soldiers” at the end of the service as the pews let out, I went to Sunday school most every week, and I had two years of catechism. But I didn’t stop there, I have read widely on all topics over the last 50 years, and I have a pretty good handle on where everyone in the world is coming from based on their personal histories. I can say with great confidence that there isn’t a better book ever written than the Bible in exploring the nature of evil and how detrimental it can be for the human race. Yet my interests in history go far beyond the time frame of the Bible, which is around 4000 B.C. with the start of Adam and Eve and extends to our present time roughly 6000 years later. I consider sources that talk about the “pre-Adamites” and their religions. And when you start getting into the Gnostic beliefs from the Book of Enoch, you open the door to consider humans came not just from the earth but many other places in the galaxy.   I would say the evidence points to “many other places.” And that doesn’t mean that the Bible was wrong in its description of the creation of Adam and Eve. But what we see in the Bible is an experiment by God to break a tribe of humans away from the masses and free them from the bondage of the worship of Baal, an ancient deity from Egypt that persisted with great reverence in the land of Canaan and was the primary villain of the Bible, much more so than Satan, or mentions of the Devil, which don’t come along until almost the end of the Bible, in the New Testament.

You could spend a lifetime putting together all the various puzzles regarding prehistory, the mysteries of today, and how the Bible plays a part in it all. Like most books, it only captures one point of view in a very specific timeframe. But unlike most books, it covers exact references to a family line of descendants over many thousands of years to conduct a particular experiment on the nature of good versus evil and essentially the struggle of Yahweh against the primal nature of all people to worship Baal. This is where western civilization starts, and eastern religions separate themselves, leading to globalism’s primary struggle today, how to merge these two radical forces, which is absolutely impossible. In a world where communist China is being used to sell globalism through corporate control, this issue of Baal is persistently a problem, the worship of the forces of nature and submission to it, as opposed to the western view of conquering nature and using it as a tool for human advancement. The essential problem is what the Bible is about. The Old Testament is a chronicle of this struggle and the ramifications of failure to adhere to it. That’s why I love the Bible because nothing else ever done in literature has really attempted to solve this problem of evil.  Other attempts have tried to define it, but they do very little to solve it.  Are all the worshipers of Baal evil? Why is Yahweh so jealous of Baal, to the point that he would destroy his own people by turning to Baal for worship? I would say that Yahweh was a rebel, a fighter who was trying to free people from the clutches of an ancient problem, one that persisted for many millions of years, the worship of nature to the detriment of human development. Once people started listening to God, the Yahweh of the Bible, then civilization lurched forward, and we have what is called in another book I love quite a lot, The 5000 Year Leap, by Cleon Skousen. 

I recently saw a lot of talk about satanic references, with a picture of three women at the Golden Globes dressed in bizarre outfits. As I’ve pointed out, Satan doesn’t appear in the Bible until 1 Chronicles 21:1, nearly halfway through the text, and when he appears, he’s a kind of census taker. I’m sure there is a lot more to that story somewhere. But the villain of the Bible is Baal, and the plot device is escaping from its rule, which looks to have been around well before the events of the Bible. Much of the modern “satanic” worship referenced is actually humanity’s lazy trend to continue worshiping Baal. Its Baal worship that is essentially behind climate change and is the religion of globalism, especially from the point of view of the communist Chinese. They call their gods by different names, but the nature worship aspect of merging light and darkness as a kind of balance stands opposed to light conquering darkness; that is the message of the Bible. And the two are not compatible. They cannot coexist as the bumper stickers indicate. And to avoid the conflict, you can’t just throw out all religion, which has been the weapon of choice of those globalist-minded. It can all get very confusing, especially if you listen to the authority figures. So if you need to get your bearings, I would suggest rereading the Bible, or for the first time, and getting your mind wrapped around the struggle. Because of all the great things that have happened in history, the essential conflict that we are all still engaged in is this fight between Yahweh and Baal. The battle between human progress and yielding to the forces of nature. And that fight is literally in everything we do. So, understanding it will help your life a lot. Simply put, the path to evil is in the lazy; the worship of Baal comes from those too lazy to do for themselves and hope that nature will give them a way out of personal responsibility. And good, as the Bible defines it, is in self-responsibility and assertiveness to do good in the world by leading a productive life toward the aims of creation.

Why I Don’t Dance: Of course, there are lots of hostile forces looking for devices of mind control, and music for them is easy

It was one of those weird conversations you have with people who ask unusual questions that do not have usual answers. I was having dinner with some people from the East Coast on the river in Cincinnati, and small talk was the qualifier for many reasons. There was music in the background, which naturally provoked the question of what kind of bands I liked and what music I liked to listen to. And from me, that does not get a usual response to a band listing my favorite music. Most people do have a few musical groups that they enjoy a lot, but I’m not one of them. I have always viewed music as a device for psychological warfare and a fundamental element of mass mind control. And for that reason, it answers the big question, why I never dance to music, anywhere, ever. I do not allow myself to be moved to the beat of music in any way, shape, or form, which is an unusual position to take in any kind of society because music is often seen as a unifier and a bridge builder, which is why it came up in that dinner conversation. I’m not a wet blanket on music when people play it. I don’t point to certain types of music and decry it as “the work of the devil.” But I don’t trust the music to my mind in any way. In a world where many maniacal forces desire the subtle rule of everything, music is an all too tempting playground for the occult to rule in ways they have desired from the beginning of time. Of course, it’s happening now to people in ways they cannot relate to. I only mention it now because I see many people realizing that there is a lot more to the Wizard of Oz of our culture now that the curtain has been pulled back on lots of mass mind control through election fraud, Covid tampering, and politics in general. It’s hard to know who the bad guys are and the good guys are when we see how top-secret documents were handled by the FBI for Trump, for instance, as opposed to Biden. We see there is something wrong that is beyond our grasp, and our trust has been violated, yet we aren’t quite sure how or why. 

If you want to believe that all there is to reality is just the visual spectrum that you can see or the audio waves we can hear, I understand. It’s hard and complicated to reach beyond a human’s perceptual reality and to ask hard questions or not to assume that those who want to rule the world wouldn’t be obsessed with controlling all perceptual reality from the means of strategies that exist outside it. For instance, there is a plant known to the Arabs as the Golden Plant, called Baaras which is supposed to grow on Mount Libanus, underneath the road which leads to Damascus. It flowers in the month of May after the snow melts. At night you can see it with torchlight, but in the day, it’s invisible. Does that mean it doesn’t exist if you cannot see it? Or does it mean you do not have the biological sensitivity range to detect it? I would say that humans have evolved into seeing and hearing what they need to, but there is a lot of outside perceptual reality. All those lifeforms compete for attention in a hostile universe motivated by its transgressions. And that it should never be assumed that reality can be trusted only by what you can see or hear. Many dogs and other animals can see things beyond the hearing range of human beings, and they react to those noises often, barking out the window at what we would call “nothing,” but to them, there is something there. 

What often bothers me about music and those who write music, and knowing something about the entertainment industry over time, and how governments do like to tamper with mass populations, as they were caught doing with Covid and elections, is that drugs often assist songwriters, under the influence, all kinds of elements can be brought into the matter as what is considered an inspiration, but might actually be mind control by hostile forces. How many bands brag about how straight they are while playing music or writing it? Often drugs come into the mix or some other chemical element, and as I have reviewed the matter of Ayahuasca a great deal, I believe those people. I think what they see is not just hallucinations produced by an overly stimulated brain but a glimpse into what we call the spirit world. The correct way to reference it is as “competing” life forms on several dimensional realities. Do we really understand the lyrics to the songs that are sung? There are many references from thoughtful people who look at the concerts of Katy Perry or Madonna, who openly offered free oral sex to anybody who would vote against President Trump, occult references that many suspect point to an Illuminati influence over the music industry. Based on the behavior of most musical artists, people would not be crazy to draw that conclusion. So knowing what we do about corrupt governments and how they would lie to us about Covid, election fraud, and even the importance of classified documents from presidents or former presidents, why wouldn’t we assume that published music released to mass markets isn’t attached to deep occult rituals designed to invoke spirit world help from beyond the grave? And suddenly, innocently, we find ourselves mouthing the words and tapping our feet to a catchy tune that might be trying to invoke some ritualistic menace intent on destroying all humanity. Yet we rationalize it as just “entertainment.”

One of the most ancient conflicts that have been recorded was the one between Yahweh in the Christian Bible and his archrival Baal. Millions and millions of people were killed in this conflict, and it all came down to those who followed the Ten Commandments or worshipped at the altar of Baal. And with all our technology and the noise of modern society, I would say that the point of the noise is to saturate our minds with nonsense so that we don’t pick up on the intent of those who would otherwise call themselves our enemies. The music industry has always been suspected of having motivations beyond just making money. Whether it was playing records backward to detect hidden messages or the ritual nature of mass drug consumption at a rock concert to the beat of seductive music that takes people out of a conscious state of decision-making and makes them artifacts of desire, I think music is a vehicle for mind control by lots of forces, whether they be governments wanting to invoke a compliant sheep-like society, or maniacal demons of the underworld looking to make their mark in the world in ways they otherwise wouldn’t have the power to do, my answer to the music question is that I don’t trust any of it. I don’t think it’s possible just to enjoy entertainment without considering its motivations and the impact on the psychology of the listener. So for all those reasons, and many more just hinted at, I don’t dance to music. Not at weddings. Not at sporting events. Nowhere. When my daughters were married, we did not do the “daddy-daughter” dance because I don’t dance. Anywhere, with anybody, ever. Responding to things, not in your control is not healthy, fun, or smart.

I Hate Love: Remember, Jezebel was thrown out of a window and eaten by dogs, which I think was a wonderful thing

One of the things I hate the most in the world is the word “love.” I absolutely hate it. Not because I don’t love things; actually, there are many things in the world that I “love.” I am very passionate about a great many topics and things. But the way the word “love” has been dispersed to us over a long period, most recently with the KGB intelligence strategy to impose in America the peace sign during the hippie movement, the goal was always to undo us to collapse while we were busy “loving” each other. The peace sign was meant to change our value systems from a warring nation with the best military, capital markets, and endless opportunities for the most people, and to erode those values so other countries could knock us off to be the new world players. The peace movement was always an attack, meant to take advantage of our natural inclination to “love” as we have interpreted the Bible by many of the same maniacal characters. The churches themselves have sought to be the big power players competing with governments for power since the beginning of time, so much of what values they have extracted from the Bible were interpreted for us in view of our role being sheep more than the shepherd or the wolf. I’ve read the Bible, backward and forwards, along with many other books, and I don’t get a message of love at all costs. Love has a cost, and that is the insult when a hippie culture of communists came along in the 50s, 60s, and 70s to impose on an entire generation a KGB strategy meant to undo us all by exposing our misunderstandings of Christian values that say we must love at all costs.

Instead, I look at love as a currency that has value. And by associating love as unconditionally, then we have allowed elements of our society to take advantage, and they certainly have. That’s not how it is in my life. If I love people or things, there are conditions. And if those parties don’t live up to the expectations, I don’t love regardless. And why would anybody? The idea that we should love each other no matter what we do to each other is ridiculous. It was the enemies of America who came up with all these dumb notions about hate, that “hate” hurts you more than it does me kind of thing. No, hate is a value system that pulls love away from those undeserving. And allows you to function guilt free when people betray you. And under such functions, a nation is then better able to make decisions on treason, sedition, and betrayal of each other or of our country and the values it represents.

The part of the Bible with Jesus in it saying things like “forgive them, father, for they do not know what they do” is very small. Over time, we have been directed to focus on it because those sentiments serve the power forces in the world in whatever form they present themselves. Many people who point at the Bible and say it tells us to love unconditionally never read the Bible but instead allow themselves to be seduced by an institutionalist from the church who interprets life much the way a common politician does. I would say that the God of the Bible is a vengeful character who killed many millions of people to stop them from essentially worshipping Baal. Satan, Lucifer, and all elements of the Beast are constructs of the pagan gods who predate the Exodus. God spent many pages of the Bible punishing those who keep running to Baal and breaking the Ten Commandments. Any modern interpretation of the unconditional love of God by sending his son Jesus to die for our sins is wrapped up in the powerful forces of the world who want their sheep to go quietly into the slaughterhouse instead of fighting for what’s right. 

Love is something that is earned, and it should be something that is a deterrent to bad behavior. If people don’t value God’s love, which is what much of the Bible is all about, then God’s wrath comes upon them, and they will be punished for their behavior. Sometimes it’s death, such as the holy man in Kings 13, who a lion kills because he disobeyed the Lord.   Apparently, he was punished for not listening, and a lion just came along and tore him to shreds. And people saw the body and just kept walking by as the lion stood next to an ass (a donkey). The churches of Europe throughout the Middle Ages after the fall of the Roman Empire, then up until the present period of subversion by intelligence agencies, whether it’s the KGB during the Cold War or the CIA in America yesterday trying to discourage voters from voting for President Trump, love has been the means to attack, to keep everyone unaware of the actual war that has been going on for centuries. And what you get in the end is the worship of Baal, just as occurred in the Bible repeatedly, from those who spit in the face of God and then had to feel the wrath. To my way of looking at things, the wrath of love lost should be a deterrent. To lose love should be something people don’t want to experience. And if they think love will always be there and you don’t have to work to maintain it, you will see a collapsed culture. 

And there is nothing worse than the “free love” movement where sexually, the whole ceremony of love has been cheapened on purpose. I have a significant social media imprint and can’t record how many women send me DMs for hookups, which I find repulsive. They don’t know better, especially the young women who are coming out of their teens and are 20-somethings looking for a welfare check from an older man. They were raised in this free-love environment that started with the topless losers at Woodstock in 1969. Many of these young women are the kids and grandkids of those old hippie, pot-smoking deadbeats. And love lost its currency a long time ago because it was cheapened, but it is an evil culture that has turned to Baal repeatedly, just as Jezebel did. Remember what happened to her? She was thrown out of a window and eaten by dogs because she went against God. And I think that was a good thing to have happened. We are at a point where we have to stop the strategy that Saul Alinsky and many other enemies of America have inflicted on us all, our gullibility toward love, and our misplaced value of maintaining love at all costs, because we believe it’s the thing God wants us to do. I don’t think God wants an immoral society and that everything is cool just because Jesus died on the cross. We live this life and die to be born again in heaven. Instead, I would argue that we should fight for what’s right, whether here on earth in 2023 or in heaven beyond time’s reach. Love is a currency we should cash in and distribute to those worthy. And to those who aren’t, they need to feel the wrath of hate and all that comes with it.

The Technology of Crystal Skulls: “To destroy my enemies in their sleep”

For whatever reason, this year, which is different from years in the past, I’ve had a lot of people visit my office to reflect on the previous year and speculate on tomorrow’s opportunities. And every one of them has taken notice of my love of skulls, pictures, monuments, odds, and ends of every kind that would be hard to miss for the uninitiated. Even my books that have been published have a purposeful reverence for skulls on the cover of them. So obviously, that provokes questions about my commitment to the seditious side of human life. Then, of course, they see my crystal skull, which can look quite menacing, provoking questions about its crystal ball-like appearance. And my response to those questions about why I have it is obvious, “because I like to destroy my enemies in their sleep.” Consistently with this is a look of shock followed by my continued statement, “of course, there has to be some defense mechanism against all the forces of liberalism and jaw-dropping collectivism that inhabits the minds of the malicious. That crystal skull destroys people from the inside out and rearranges their personal constitutions making a mess of their sanity, and it works great. Why fight people face to face when you don’t have to, except for the traditional measures of valor, fairness, and justice?  When you have people coming at you from every direction and all levels of maliciousness, you need some reason to thin out the herd, which is why I love this guy,” I say, holding my crystal skull. Usually, the meeting of seasonal greetings ends at that point, and the conversation ends with well wishes and goodbyes, then backward glances as they make haste to be somewhere else. 

I am, of course, referring to what people believe is the nature of crystal skulls which is quite a thing in New Age speculation that people have been wondering about since the Mitchell-Hedges crystal skull was found in Belize by his adopted daughter while he was looking for the lost continent of Atlantis. Since Plato wrote about Atlantis, people have been looking for the lost civilization, which has picked up steam recently in very positive ways. There has been a lot of debate about the crystal skulls ever since that 1920s discovery, as most conventional archaeologists have deemed them all hoaxes. For whatever reason, many of the crystal skulls that have been found have been located in that region of central Mexico, including the one I have had a small obsession with that is currently in the British Museum. I made a pilgrimage there a few years ago to see it for myself; it’s a little less polished than the Mitchell-Hedges skull, but it’s on a big stage with all kinds of interesting stories behind it. Once there, I had a pretty sizable argument with the curator, who was on staff at the time and was tired of my questions about the display. It’s a similar story there that there is at the Cincinnati Museum Center’s display on the Cincinnati Tablet. These objects just don’t fit the historical record as they have been introduced, and museum personnel really don’t know where to showcase them or in what historical timeline. Are they Indian in nature or something else? I am in the “something else” camp. I think there is a lot of merit to the Mitchell-Hedges pursuit of finding Atlantis where he was looking. The various mound cultures all over planet earth indicate a global culture obsessed with observations from the sky that existed before the last Ice Age uniformly everywhere, indeed not regionally, and following the scientific rules of diffusion and cultural migration that is linear in its evolution. 

I love skulls for lots of complicated reasons, most of which make them esoteric symbols of life, not the death that they are utilized during the golden age of pirates. I like them for both reasons, for the punishment of enemies, but mainly as the symbols of life where the cell structure of varied lifeforms that make up a human body collect to form an individual person, out of the goo of all life energy that exists. The skeleton of a person gives something for all that life to hang onto, which makes an opportunity for a focused life that otherwise wouldn’t occur. The skulls then become symbols of that transition from life potential goo and the collection of it into a human body for the development of imagination and thought, what I think are the most miraculous elements in the entire universe, in whatever lifeform they collect in. The development of human imagination and intellect is a miracle of nature captured within a skull, and everything is built around it. And the crystal nature of the purest quartz that many of the crystal skulls are made of communicates with other life forms and energy that exist outside our everyday 4-dimensional existence. We are dealing with at all times over 11-dimensional realities, so it’s a developing science to understand how and why things work. I tend to think that crystal skulls are part of the ancient technology category, much like some future culture would ponder our cell phones of today, 4000 or 10,000 years from now, and their use of silicone chips and quartz to store information. 

I have run experiments on some of my quartz crystal skulls, and I can report that with them, there is usually a 10 to 15% buff to the reaches of my personality. I have worked to correct sentimental desires from such an experiment, but the results are noticeable. The ability to communicate beyond terrestrial limits opens up many opportunities, but it can be dangerous. Information is free-flowing, so madness or deceit can be the result for many people. There is a reason that occult references were very popular in our entertainment culture, such as in The Wizard of Oz where crystal balls were used as a convenient plot device. People at a subconscious level understand these things, and they run deep into our past as a culture that goes beyond their use as a taboo meant to discourage their use for the forces that want to control human thought and action in our visible reality. But suppose you have a forceful and resolute personality. In that case, the ability of crystal objects, like balls, skulls, or even jewelry, can certainly increase that influence across multi-dimensional realities for good or evil. This is similar to the use of Urim and Thummim from the adventures in the wilderness of Mt. Sinai, where Moses, Aaron, and the various high priests of the evolving Israelites spoke to God in the presence of the Ark of the Covenant. See Exodus 28:30 for just one of the references. 

Paranormal research, to me, is just science waiting to be discovered; I don’t see anything hoaky about any of it. Ghosts are likely explained by an individual spiritual energy that has simply lost their bodies or in bodies that exist on another level of reality found quantumly in dimensions higher than the four we operate in. So there is a lot more going on that we don’t understand because our science hasn’t figured it out yet. And I think in many ways we are more advanced today than we were 10,000 years ago, but in other ways, there is obviously a lot of technology, especially in interacting with multi-dimensional existence that was far superior in the past, just as we see in the moving around of big rocks. There was obvious technology available in the past that we have forgotten presently, which is why the rationalization I had with the staff at the British Museum was so preposterous. He believed that the British Museum crystal skull was a hoax because he couldn’t accept that very ancient people could have made it. After all, the technology wasn’t available until very recently. That has never sat well with me; its scientifically lazy, and now that we’ve seen to what extent a government will lie to people, with Covid, with election fraud, over just about everything, then I think everything the government has said about anything is subject to a reappraisal. And ultimately, my love of skulls reminds me to consider everything when making decisions, not just what is seen, but what is unseen, or not so easily seen, in the light of our living day because there is so much more just beyond our site that has an impact on a successful day and the treasures that are possible in a living life.

Avatar, the United Nations Message about Sustainable Development: Liberalism has killed movies and Disney in general

I feel like it’s appropriate to gloat a bit about the box office disappointment of Avatar: The Way of Water is seeing. I predicted this poor showing several weeks away from the release in December of 2022, and everything is happening just as I said it would. I like Jim Cameron, and I have been very supportive of Disney as a company over the years. But these people and companies have moved much more to the leftover political time and use their entertainment platforms to communicate radical left ideas. And Avatar is essentially a United Nations sustainable development advertisement that centerpieces a save the whales campaign. In the world we live in today, people are tired of having left-leaning messages crammed down their throats. And that is what this new Avatar film is, a massive environmental message about how primitive society is superior to a technological capitalist one, and people aren’t exactly flocking to see it. Now with the first Avatar, back in 2009, when people assumed that there were freedoms of choice and that the political left deserved a chance to be heard from after eight years of George W. Bush, the massive growth of government after 9/11, and the belief that liberalism and conservatism could all live well together, people were willing to give Avatar a chance. And because it was a visually spectacular film, they went to see it and listened to what James Cameron had to say about the benefits of worshipping nature.

I don’t hate Avatar; here, my wife and I are at the Avatar land at Disney. I think it’s fantastic. But it certainly advocates a political, environmental message as its purpose. We filmed this for my children to see who were curious about what we were doing on our vacation.

This new Avatar film is doing good business from all normal measures. It is on track to break a billion dollars quickly with global box office numbers. Avatar is doing fantastic in countries where the United Nations is much more respected, such as Europe, and the greenie-weenie message is more accepted than in the United States. The liberal message with the fantastic visuals is worth seeing for people. But this film is now two weeks out and tracking with other blockbusters, and from the beginning, Disney was hoping this movie would be something special and that people would flock to see it like the previous movie. After all, Disney is committed to several more sequels of these Avatar films, and they think they will all make a few billion dollars each. Instead, what they are finding is a product with brand damage. In a post-Covid world, people are a lot more jaded about the liberal messages that are in movies. People watched their president being stolen from them. Instead, we were given by American intelligence agencies a loser in Joe Biden and told that all fossil fuels would be eliminated and we’d be forced to deal with power losses due to a lack of sustainability of solar and wind power. And the reason for Democrats is essentially the plot of Avatar 2. We have to save the whales. Capitalism is bad. And white people in big technical ships want to exploit indigenous people who live in harmony with nature. It’s the same argument against the formation of America and arguing that the Indians found in North America had their lives taken from them in favor of a greedy capitalist culture of technology lovers who are too into themselves and not bowing at the feet of mother universe.   

Of course, the pin-heads at Disney believe that the World Economic Forum people in Davos are the future and have bought into it. Larry Fink’s BlackRock has bought up much of the board at Disney. Now their leadership is filled with purple haired transexuals who think the grooming of kids in kindergarten is appropriate. They wanted to go to war with Ron DeSantis in Florida to throw their weight around as a company, which would somehow work out fine on the public trust front. When the first Avatar film was made, it was produced by 20th Century Fox, but now that Disney has acquired that production company, Disney has the rights to Jim Cameron’s creations. And behind the scenes, they have been attached at the hip with their environmentalism messages. While Avatar doesn’t appear to have much going on with gay characters, the politics of the green movement is clearly the driving force. And people get enough of that on CNN, MSNBC, and all the newspapers these days. They are not inclined to spend money seeing a 3-hour movie about those topics. In days before the government showed all its ugliness with election fraud, FBI insurrections to throw a popularly picked president out of office, and all the evils government showed with Covid and the lockdowns, we are in a much different world than when the first Avatar film came out. Cameron has always flirted with liberal messages in his films, the Terminator films were cautionary tales of the evils of technology, and the Abyss was all about aliens who were warning us about our own tendencies toward destruction. But the old truck driver in Jim Cameron managed to speak a language of violence and independence that people could relate to. Hence, they overlooked the growing liberal in Cameron because his movies were good.  After all, at the end of the Alien films, it was always the woman, Ripley, dressed in underwear, who representing Mother Earth would defeat the terror and save the quest.  The message was always obvious in those films, the feminine aspect of nature would always save the day.  But back then, Cameron and his fellow filmmakers were coyer about it.

But the success of Titanic, then Avatar went to Cameron’s head, and he has forgotten what made his movies great. Now he thinks he has the political capital to put very liberal messages in his movies, and people will love his movies so much that they might just learn something along the way. And that clearly is the belief of the Disney people who have drunk the Cameron Kool-aid. Where Cameron used to disguise his liberalism much better in the past, now he’s like the old man who farts at the table and just doesn’t care who might protest because everyone is hoping that they’ll get a nice present from that crazy old man at Christmas time, so they keep their mouths shut. And that Emperor Has No Clothes on mentality has hurt Jim Cameron. He has lost touch with his audience and thinks people like these blue people he created in Avatar are much beloved. But in truth, and this is the fact he hasn’t faced yet, it is because of technology, not the nature message, that people have gone to see Avatar at all. It’s all about the visual spectacle, not the message that people go to see, and this time around, people have seen it and done it. And liberalism is driving them away. It’s certainly not bringing them into the theaters. This isn’t Top Gun: Maverick which I would say is an average film from the 80s done now that people desperately crave a return to. People went to see Maverick because it made them feel good. Not because the movie was great but because they wanted to see that kind of patriotic story, even in places around the world separated from American influence. Avatar is the opposite; people go see it for the colors and the curiosity. But they forget the names of the characters after because they really don’t care about the people. Only the pretty scenery. And that gets them into the seats the first time, but we see that they go once and then forget about it. The film doesn’t have legs, and that is because of the grotesque liberalism contained in the story that has ultimately destroyed the Disney brand forever.

Genocide in America: Why the world hates us, and what we should do about it

I

‘ve been thinking about it for a long time. Specifically, the Bible comes up more because of it because it’s the original question that impacts just about everyone on planet earth. Was it morally justified for the Israelites to take the promised lands from the Canaanites? What provocation could there possibly have been for a God of any kind to justify the mass slaughter of men, women, and children just because a God said so? There were other gods; clearly, this one was very jealous and wanted no other gods to be worshipped in any way possible. When the Israelites did, they were punished harshly, often with death by stoning. We are talking about a very violent episode that built much of our views on modern politics, is the creation of the country of Israel justified against the Palestinians, and why does Israel have such a right to exist at such significant cost to human life and effort? It really is “THE” question of our times because its answer then resonates with the founding of America and the general presumption of global politics in all latitudes of concern or longitude of displacement. These are big questions, perhaps not as big as why no nation on earth has claimed Antarctica for themselves. But this one is at the core of the most human discussion. Was it genocide for the Israelites to run the Canaanites from their land with such a bloody conquest? After all, weren’t the Canaanites just minding their own business, much the way the Indians of North America were? 

These are big questions, and I speak about the Bible more now than ever because we are literally in a kind of Armageddon presently, so a gut check of all our assumptions is necessary for context. I am prepared to argue in favor of the Israelites, no matter how much carnage and destruction they may have caused in the process. But that is a topic of its own for likely many other articles. But for this investigation, another more important matter came up, the definition of genocide as defined by five specific traits that everyone mutually agrees on. And those five traits were flushed out well in a new book I read called The Destruction of the Canaanites for all the reasons I mentioned.   It turned out to be a very thoughtful book by Charlie Trimm, God, Genocide, and Biblical Interpretation. Upon reading the book, I couldn’t help but realize that much of the world was applying methods of genocide against America to this very moment in time, and nobody was all that worried about it. We know that there are people in China, Iran, Muslim extremists, and the World Economic Forum who intend to use some form of genocide to eradicate America from the face of the earth, in many cases, for revenge for what the Israelites did in the land of Canaan. So we either find the action morally justifiable or condemn it and join Baalim’s global worshippers for our own survival. Realizing this, I have been using the Bible as the foundation of what comes next because, essentially, the entire western world has been built upon the premise of the Israelites destroying the whole land of Canaan just because God promised them that they could have it, after freeing them from enslavement by the Egyptians. How could one side be justified as morally correct when the other side would call it genocide and then spend the rest of history trying to commit revenge for the original action?

So we are being attacked with the intent of genocide right now, even by members of our own country as defined by the mutually agreed definitions. And they are committing that genocide out of moral outrage from the original sin of Israel destroying the land of Canaan, then using that justification for all the destruction of western culture to this very day. So what are those definitions? Well, here they are for your own analysis. And it will become clear what kind of strategy is being played out against the United States to this present moment. Here are the five definitions outlined in the excellent book, The Destruction of the Canaanites:

  1. Killing members of the group; (obviously, this is self-explanatory.)
  2. Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (it could be said that the policy of forced imprisonment, such as what we see from January 6th, and the general intentions of cancel culture are meant to inflict mental harm on the target of their opposition.) 
  3. Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (any advocate of a culture of divorce, open borders for the specific purpose of drugs meant to poison the mind of their terrorism target, and purposeful destruction of the country’s currency—such has been the explicit goal of American policy coming from the Federal Reserve.)
  4. Imposing measures intended to prevent birth within the group; (isn’t this what abortion is all about? And the new addition of Covid vaccines and the blatant reports of sterilization as a side effect in some of the drug users. In general, any use of drugs untested over time to impose a mass effect not advertised in the short run, with the long-run goal of impacting birth rates negatively.)
  5. Forcibly transferring children from a group to another group; (this is what public education is all about. Create a system financially that forces a mother and father to both work outside the home, leaving the creation of the family unprotected. Then to submit their children to a government school for their training. And as we have seen from the political left, public schools assume that all children belong to everybody. And the parents were too busy to pay attention or argue the fact. They have a house payment that is way outside the scope of one parent providing income while the other raises the children traditionally.) 

These are all examples of genocide, and all of them, except for the first one, is happening to us daily in America. And because nobody has defined it as such, nobody has been talking about it. People might feel the effects, but they don’t have the definitions to understand the attack. I would argue that genocide is perfectly OK if the target is evil. And the other side clearly believes that America is evil because of it’s support of Isreal, for instance, and our foundation on biblical concepts of Christianity. But the whole debate comes full circle to the justification of a rule of law. The Canaanites were worshipers of the old religion of astrology and the gods of old, while the Ten Commandments that Moses brought down out of Mt. Sinai were something different, something of thought and human assertiveness. And once that rule of law was submitted to the world, western civilization was created over the next 3000 years, and more, and the concept of free people became an option. And that is what all the fighting is all about. And to continue the process of human enslavement to the same old gods of pre-history, and up until the destruction of the Canaanites by the Israelites, the forces of what we’d call evil are intent on our own destruction, for their very preservation. Well, that is for the rule of law to sort out; the Canaanites were breaking the rules of law established by the Ten Commandments. Instead, they were worshiping the whimsical forces of universal laws and the moods of nature in a passive way, even if it involves human sacrifice to those forces. We are talking about human law founded by God to perpetuate all civilization forward, and we are defending that premise with violence if need be. Genocide happens as a result from of any of the participants.   Yet only one side is right in performing the genocide. And knowing that there is no question that it is happening to us in America right now, and the means of delivering that genocide is to deny that it’s happening at all by the enemies of existence, the mandate to defend ourselves from the act of genocide is the crises of our times which demands our attention.

Marriage is Between a Man and a Woman, Only: Global governments and their war against family

As the same-sex marriage protections were passed in Congress, one common theme essentially said, “you have a right to marry whoever you love regardless of the color of your skin or the orientation, and it shouldn’t be controversial. Our nation was built on the notion of individual liberty.” Yet, and this is speaking from my personal experience, I’ve been married for over 33 years, and I can say that marriage isn’t about sex. You don’t get married to have sex. You get married to start and to raise a family. And it’s hard work. You get married to go into a partnership with another person that lasts for many years. You don’t get married just to get a divorce over silly disagreements, like one of the marriage partners doesn’t like the color of a new car that is bought. You get married to work out problems together and to teach future generations how to approach life. And even when all the kids are grown up and move away, you stay married, so there is a place for them to go on Thanksgiving and Christmas to recharge their batteries and continue fighting for the creation of their own families. In other words, the creation of a family is the first form of government in modern society, and we should do everything we can to protect it, nurture it, and respect it. And all that Congress has done with the passage of their same-sex protections act is desecrate the basic premise of family creation. Government sees the creation of family as a rival to their form of central government, which is the reason for their position, which is insulting to all those who endeavor to have a good family that starts with a good marriage. 

I’ve always liked the Bible, it is the foundation of law and order for western civilization, so it becomes very obvious when rivals to that law and order come along and attempt to erode away the foundations of that understanding. And the efforts to separate biblical understanding through the separation of church and state have really been about attacking the value systems of western civilization in order to create something else, something more “eastern” in its value systems. So a desecration of all that western civilization has been built upon is a deliberate strategy, and those participants reveal their intentions in doing so. That is clearly the crime of this lame-duck congress upon passing a bill of desecration intended for the American family. From every progressive front, our legal system, which encourages divorce, our entertainment culture that has sought to cheapen marriage to the silly vestiges of sex and sex only, forgetting that the purpose of sex is exclusively in the creation of children, not in the expression and pursuit of recreation. Or even the purpose of the internet, which seems solely to have been built to spy on people and to poison their minds with easy images of pornography to appeal to the animal natures of human beings so that they would be easier to control by centralized governments stripped of their primary purposes in life, which was to create good families, the first foundation of a stable society. The war against the American family, and families all over the world, has been going on for a long time by purposeful desecrators intent on eradicating the premise so that people would be vulnerable to the instigations of an all-powerful government that replaces the concept of mother and father so that children would all share the same home, the ultimate collectivism of communism, the China Model. 

What I like about the Bible are passages like this one from Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertained unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.” To the kind of people who supported what Congress did on that same-sex bill, they would laugh at that statement and would call it old-fashioned and naive. But what they are really saying is that the notions of such divisions of recognition between the sexes have been successfully suppressed by progressive society, where the destruction of Christian ideas has been all but destroyed. And such Bible references are laughable and out of touch. Then I would say, as a person who has been married to the same woman for many years and raised kids and grandkids, that anybody who doesn’t live their life close to that Bible passage has no chance at a successful life in the creation of families, which is the point of the destruction in the first place. Progressives, global liberals, have always intended to eradicate Christian support from the laws of society so that they would not have to acknowledge the primary foundation of all government, which is the formation of the family. Government wants to be an organism of itself, and it doesn’t want to bend the knee to a family of any kind. Government wants to be like the concept of family in China, where the government is the ultimate mother and father, as a unisex tradition, and all of society are its children. And to perform such a desecration upon their primary rivals in the world, The United States, and in general, western civilization itself, the concept of a traditional family must go along with the Christian foundations which supported it in the first place.

When I was first married over three decades ago, I was surprised at how antagonistic people were to my ideas of marriage. Some really hostile people in my life were against the marriage. They had bit into the poison fruit of a progressive society that wanted to follow the rules being applied, and I simply rejected them. My idea of marriage was traditional and Biblical, with clear divisions between the role of men and women. My wife would be a stay-at-home mother and would dedicate her life to our children. I would do all the strong stuff and ensure the family always had what it needed. I did it if that required working three shifts a day, seven days a week. And even if that sounds like an exaggeration, there were several years when I had to do just that. And I did it without a second car, so I rode a bicycle to work so my wife would have the car to care for the children and drive them to school. You don’t complain; you don’t cry. You don’t bend the knee to the pressures of the universe. You fight back, you fight for the right to raise a family, and you let that family know that no matter what, you are a pillar that holds everything up so they can develop safely within your family. And even when they are all grown up, your home is a safe place for them to return to and always find their footing. Even when you are 90 years old and have been married to the same person for 70 years. You don’t get divorced over sex. You don’t spend your time wasting it thinking about some form of sexual discharge. You don’t waste your efforts on stupid stuff that doesn’t make a family great. And that is what a marriage is, and it’s hard work on a good day. And most of the time, it’s not fun and games. It’s picking a person to spend a life with and solving problems within a partnership, and sex is often not even a relevant question or consideration, nor should it be. Sex is for producing children and for that purpose only. We’ve made it into a recreation, and the government has wanted that to distract us from the goals of family, which they see as rivals for their pursuits of control. And that is why this Congressional push for same-sex marriage is an abomination to the American family and an act of war toward the sovereignty of every household that means our total destruction, and nothing less. And in my view, anything that does not promote family values and the sustainability of a family in any way is completely worthless to the human race.

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.
