The Attack by the Fourth Unelected Branch of Government: Joe Biden is their pawn, and they are out for blood

There was always speculation about the Kennedy assassination that has pointed more toward the American intelligence agencies than to a lone shooter who wanted to assassinate the president. But people had a hard time believing that anybody could be that evil or that we couldn’t trust our various government members. But if there was any doubt, that is now gone by watching the Liberal World Order freak out about another Trump run for office, specifically what Joe Biden has been willing to do to keep his political rival away from the White House. The Biden White House obviously approved the raid on Trump’s home in Florida. The Biden Department of Justice greenlit the raid, and the FBI conducted the deed with drool dripping from their salacious mouths. A chance to abuse their authority and send a message to the former president. They took documents out of their boxes and put them on the floor for all to see, including a Time magazine cover to serve as a metaphor that was clearly intended to be an intimidation tactic; there is no longer any speculation about a fourth branch of government unaccountable to voters who think they are in charge. In their global formation’s early days, they committed assassinations and killed their targets. These days, they try not to do that; they just confiscate bank accounts, destroy reputations in public and make it so their targets would be better off dead. And that’s what the raid by the FBI was, an attempted assassination and a clear message that they were in charge, and they didn’t give a damn what voters thought about it. Now, do you understand, dear reader, why they stole the election and gave the White House to Joe Biden? This fourth branch of unaccountable government wants power at all costs so they can abuse it. And they’ll eliminate anybody in their way to acquire that power. That’s what we are dealing with here. 

Then in the aftermath, as a leaked photo was making its circulation around the media showing how the FBI could desecrate a private residence of a former president by a raid sent by the current occupant of the White House to attack his political rival for the next election, Biden gave several speeches trying to claim that it was the MAGA movement behind Trump who was the real terrorists and that January 6th was the crime of the century. Not because it was, but because the government said it was. We weren’t supposed to look at the crimes of the Biden family, the sell-out of America to China, and the United Nations, the Desecraters of Davos, the many hostile characters who Biden represents in the White House with his stolen election, and we are supposed to believe him when he says that Trump Republicans are dangerous? Well, dangerous to whom? The answer, Trump is a danger to the Administrative State who thinks they are in charge and that they will use any power necessary to exert that power. The raid on Trump and the distribution of pictures, the redacted documents, and the stiff arm by the Department of Justice to any liability on their part for the damages that the raid caused Trump or the nation are all clear indicators of a vast and corrupt evil that is in our current government. It was all a message that they intended to go after anybody who got in their way. That the American Constitution is not their legal limit to conduct against innocent people. But the public should be afraid, and if they weren’t, they would be because the power of this new global government was the master they served, and people better get used to it. 

They had to have an unethical liar like Joe Biden accept his role as the occupier of the White House. Because nobody but a loser like him could put up with the deal. Joe Biden is the spokesperson for a massive power grab by the Administrative State that intends to spit on the Constitution and turn over the acquired power that aggression could give them to the pinheads of Davos and the finance community around the world who want a bloodless coup. And Trump must be removed so that compliance by that world can begin. Because Trump is still a symbol of traditional America, the America they fully intend to destroy. And until he is removed from public view and humiliated, the MAGA movement will continue to be a danger to their attack on American sovereignty and the intentions of globalism. Of course, they are hungry for power, for all the reasons people have been for years. And now we can see just how hungry they are, which appears unbelievable. But the actions only confirm the suspicions. It should be quite clear by now just how dangerous this fourth unelected branch of government is and what they always wanted. The other three branches, the Executive, the Judicial, and Congress itself, were just the façade. The real rulers have been this unelected fourth branch that we have been calling the Deep State but are more appropriately now referred to as the Administrative State. They are globalists in nature and expect to implement a global religion of dualism and international control that they have been thinking about for thousands of years. They are alive and well now, shown by that raid of Trump in Florida and the audacious actions demonstrated in the aftermath. 

These people have been cheating in elections for years; likely, we seldom get the people we really want to represent us because we have not been a representative republic for many years. The Kennedy assassination and the many other killings in the 60s that occurred were the early warnings of the power of this Administrative State. They were happy to blame the mob or Russian communists, but that’s how they have played the blame game for centuries. The goal was to make us think we had a representative government but that we could be forced through actions of fear into doing what they wanted us to do. They allowed the mobsters to exist to create that fear in society, but it was they who fattened their bellies and had control from the beginning. And now they have control of all three government branches and aren’t afraid of people knowing who’s in charge. They feel they can raid the home of a former president and then lecture the world that it’s his supporters who are the real terrorist threat. And some people are tempted to listen because they are afraid of the bullies and don’t want to get beat up or put on the harassment list. Then to further discourage people from resistance to this unelected fourth branch of government Biden told us we need an F-15 to defend ourselves from air raids that he could call in a moment, that a little ol’ gun wouldn’t be enough to stop the power of government controlled by the occupant of the White House, put there by the power of the Administrative State. If there was ever doubt, it’s gone now. This is a hostile government filled with terrible, corrupt people. And it’s the task of our age to fight them off and remove control of America from them. And only then, when America is restored to a proper republic, can the rest of the world have a chance for a good life as well. These international mobsters, criminal insurgents, and maniacal globalists are playing for keeps and have threatened to spill blood if necessary. They’ve done it before and are warning that they’ll do it again. Their message is to comply, or else. And the raid on President Trump was meant to scare us all. It was their horses head in the bed that was the intention, not so much for Trump but for the MAGA movement that feeds off him. They want it gone forever and are ready to fight to make that happen.

The Brain Dead Losers at the IRS: And those idiots want to hire 87,000 more of them and give them guns to kick down doors to confiscate more wealth for a bloated, out-of-control government

Of course, there should always be a concern when we are talking about putting 87,000 dumb and inefficient people onto a government payroll and encouraging them to go door to door with guns to extract more money from the American population. It’s a plea by stupid people in the administrative state to feed the beast they have created. They can’t get tax increases passed in government, so they are looking to extract more money from the public to fund their gross inefficiencies with force. But they do so without dealing with their previous inefficiencies. Instead, they insist on creating a larger government with proportionally more lackluster effort without a care in the world to the incredible cost it would bring across our economic engine to society. From my experience, IRS agents are dumb as a box of rocks on a good day. In my life, I keep things very simple, not for my sake, but because in my previous involvement with the IRS, I find them such a stupid class of people that have difficulty understanding basic things if I can’t show my incomes on simple W2s then its simply not worth doing. I get investment offers for crypto, real estate, and business opportunities of all kinds several times a day, all days of the week. But I turn them all down because the opportunity cost of doing them likely would never exceed the pain in the ass required to deal with the IRS and the set-up for the audits that require hours and hours of time spent with some of the dumbest people on earth. I’d rather give up making millions and millions of dollars so that I could gain the riches of not having to talk to a box of dumb rocks who took a government job so they could be paid well to mask their lazy life and still have authority over other people as a representative of big, out of control, inefficient, government.

The audacity of the proposal to hire 87,000 more IRS agents is that the government is already grossly inefficient. Adding this many more inefficient employees to the government payroll is only pouring gas on an already blazing dumpster fire. Government employees of all kinds are some of the worst in the world regarding lazy economic generators. I have always talked about how horrible it has been to pay public school teachers what we pay them only to get the horrendous work performance that we get out of them, not to mention the political activism. When they ask for tax hikes to pay for their bloated services to the community, it is always my default mode to require them to lay off some of that inefficiency because that should always be the goal.   Efficiency is the first thing anybody dealing with money should be thinking about. But government always throws money at inefficiency to achieve their stated objectives. In this case, they want more money to operate the administrative state, so they throw more money at the same inefficiencies that caused the problems to begin with. So not only have they compounded those inefficiencies and now connected more labor to those inefficiencies, making the situation considerably worse, but they failed to deal with the root cause of their inefficiencies in the first place seeking to mask it with ominous authority rule. That has always been the joke of public education. But you can see it most notably at your local BMV, where slow, horrible service has become the accepted norm. If you want to drive a car, you have to deal with these slow-minded losers who show up for work brain dead and end their days comatose.   All government employees become some representative of a brain-dead lifestyle by the nature of their tasks. So the greater expansion of government services, the more zombies that we put into society and pay them way too much to achieve way too little.

Because government never wants to admit what a burden it is to society, they never measure anything in opportunity cost. Instead, their goal is to leech off effort and fuel their disgusting lifestyles off the opportunity of others. With the expansion of 87,000 IRS agents, the government intends to fuel itself off the efforts of others. But as I said, there is a cost to inefficiency; it can’t be hidden on balance sheets. It emerges in undesirable ways frequently. When employees show up for work at 8 in the morning and are ordering their lunch by 9 am. It arrives at noon. Then after eating it, they are done for the day and ready to go home. So rather than work the rest of the day, they play on the internet sending messages of nothing to each other until 5 when they go pick up their kids at daycare, then meander home to die a little bit each day in front of the television too tired from their day’s activities to lift a hand to do much of anything else. Then when they finally get to their weekend, they waste it complaining about how tired they are from the previous week. That is the life of the typical government employee who has lost the ability to think because they aren’t paid to think; they are paid to waste time, money, and intellectual effort, which is precisely what the government gets in exchange for their overvalued employment. 

I remember how it was in 2010; I was on the IRS target list for Lois Lerner’s targeting of conservatives by direct order from the Obama terrorist organization that had occupied the White House. They confiscated some of my videos and other Tea Party material as evidence, and I will admit to having some fun watching them view the material. It was like watching dogs turn their heads to some invisible dog whistle, contemplating things beyond their comprehension to grasp because they didn’t have the mental capacity to do so. It was beyond their range of understanding. I’m probably being too nice when I say that IRS agents are dumb as a box of rocks. They are actually worse than that, and that’s because the mismanagement of those resources starts at the top and flows down to all the field agents. So when we add to those numbers, of course, proportionally, we will get much more inefficiency when employees are added because we did not make a leadership change. That is just dry wood on an open fire regarding the administrative state. Adding more employees to an already inefficient government agency is a useless and more costly gesture. What they cost alone is excessive but minor when added to the opportunity cost that the IRS imposes on the culture at large, the many trillions of dollars of money that could have been made if government was just out of the way. Regular hard-working people would be free to do their tasks unimpeded. And that is the cost of the additional IRS agents. The shakedown of regular people is just the beginning of the problem. The real burden comes from things that don’t happen, ultimately worsening the world. It’s bad enough to think that giving such lazy and stupid people so much government power might be a solution the administrative state values, but it’s in what doesn’t happen that holds the real costs of their incursion. And that is what the brain-dead losers of the administrative state never consider because they don’t have the minds to think it. What they want, all they want is to consume off the efforts of others. And by expanding the IRS, they are just looking the squeeze the orange a bit more for a spoonful of juice in all the inefficient ways that have become the norm of government activity.

People are innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around: The media often helps the real villains get away with crime while the innocent are prosecuted

One thing I have no tolerance for is bullies. I’ve never looked away from bullies when they show their ugliness in the world, and I’m not going to start now. When people wonder why I get up at 4:30 AM in the morning every day to write on this site and do the number of news stories I do, its because I have a lot of experience with the courts, I have known a lot of judges, lawyers, and media people, and I know how the game of law and order works from all sides of it. So to answer the question that I have heard from dozens of people over the last few weeks when they say that they have noticed that I have been supporting a lot of people who are accused of pretty serious crimes, I say to them, I don’t support criminal activity or law-breaking. If I come out in support of someone in some way, it is because I think them to be good people who are victims of bullying, and when I see it or even hear about it, I will help them at every opportunity. Not to the point where it leads to a trap, but where applicable. And when it comes to Steve Bannon from the Warroom and the false prosecution against him from the Biden Department of Justice, or the Darbi Boddy drama at Lakota schools in my neighborhood, or the Roger Reynolds case of corruption in Butler County, Ohio by the Sheriff’s department, if I come out in support of them, its because I think they are victims of abuse of authority by political bullies, and that is not something I am willing to tolerate. That is the reason I run my own news service in the form of this blog. I have learned over the years that the media is too lazy or lacks the philosophical parameters to explain things the way they need to be stated for the general public to understand, so I just do the job myself. So if I come out in support of some controversy, there is a really good reason why. 

The Steve Bannon case is self-explanatory. I know firsthand how the law can be used as a weapon to destroy people, and that’s clearly what is happening with Bannon. I like Steve; I have corresponded with him on occasion. We both have busy lives and work in different spheres of influence, but I greatly sympathize with him. The Biden DOJ is clearly abusing its authority in prosecuting him, just as Congress has abused its authority in the two impeachments of Trump, and this phony January 6th commission to attack Trump allies on popular podcasts to attempt to scare off a second Trump term. The law is being manipulated and used purely for political theater, and people’s lives are being threatened to be destroyed because of it. I would point to the local George Lang case of purgery several years ago where the very good man in the now Senator Lang was drug through the courts purely to attack him for knowing John Boehner. The target was Boehner, who was poised to be Speaker of the House in the not too distant future, and his political enemies wanted to get to him through his friends. It was one of the most disgusting court cases I had ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of them. If I live another hundred years, I still would not have exceeded my many personal court appearances and ridiculous entanglements with the law. Just because you are accused of something doesn’t make you guilty. We are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but in cases like the one against Steve Bannon, and others like him over the years, who are convicted just because they know someone who is the real target, political assassinations through twisted concepts of law and order are not acceptable and must be punished. In the end, that will be what happens coming from Steve Bannon. The bad guys will get it in the end because tolerating the kind of society that would convict him is not acceptable. 

Darbi Boddy at my home school district of Lakota has made national news over essentially being attacked as soon as she was sworn in after she had just won an election. I understand that not all the school members like her or like each other. I get that the administrators did not like the newly elected school board member who asked too many questions and didn’t seem to respect the administrative red tape that they hide so many bad things behind. For instance, the attempt to vote her off the board over a minor incident and to make a media circus out of it was reprehensible. It showed a willingness by the board to undo a person the voters had just assigned to do a job. Then to make matters worse, the school superintendent added fuel to the fire by citing her with trespassing in two of the schools as Darbi went to them unannounced as part of an official investigation into CRT, which other board members were dragging their feet on. What makes this case so bad is that the superintendent, Matt Miller is not a person of high moral integrity. Based on things he has done, he should not have a job, and he only does because other school board members have helped him keep it. I haven’t said much about it because I have not wanted to destroy Lakota schools. I have wanted to see this new school board work. But some people are really afraid of Matt Miller and what he did to Darbi Boddy; based on what I know about him was a classic case of transference, where a guilty party will assign blame to other people for actions for which they are really guilty of. That kind of behavior is a classic problem of liberalism when they abuse law and order to hide crimes they are actually guilty of. But Darbi is not a danger to student populations. There are many more accusers of Matt Miller who would say that he is the dangerous one. I have been willing to look beyond accusations in his case for the benefit of the school and the school board in general. But it disgusts me to see someone attempt to put crimes of trespassing and other bad conduct out to a predatory media intent to destroy Darbi just to protect all the other bad things that I know are going on behind the scenes; that probably should be the focus of everyone’s attention. With all that said, I am very happy with Darbi Boddy and would like to see many more like her on the school board at Lakota. She is doing a great job.

Then there is the case of corruption thrown at Roger Reynolds. I’ve known Roger for a long time. I think he and I both love Liberty Township and remember how it used to be. I think Roger, an auditor for Butler County, has done a great job. I’d go on to say that I think he is one of the best auditors in the country for any county. I think the charges against him are politically motivated, and the Sheriff’s office could not hold up to the same scrutiny they have put on Roger. When evidence is presented to a grand jury the way it has been, they have no choice but to advance the cause. But if the tables were turned, I could think of dozens and dozens and dozens of people who would happily come forward and accuse Sheriff Jones of abuse of authority and unlawful interest in public contracts. That wouldn’t mean he’s guilty of those accusations, but there are plenty of people who would accuse him of it, and that would be enough to present to a grand jury. The media has pretty much thrown Roger Reynolds to the wolves with a play-by-play narrative that clearly is trying to destroy him as a person. I haven’t wanted to see the same applied to Jones; he’s been a good sheriff. Ending a career with so many black marks would not be good. It wouldn’t be good for Butler County. But the case would be much worse if the same investigations leveled at Roger Reynolds were applied to Sheriff Jones. So in that context, I support Roger Reynolds, he is being bullied for personal reasons, and the law is being used as a weapon to make it happen. If the law were equally applied, we’d lose a lot of public servants. Maybe it should be. But this picking and choosing of law and order to take out political rivals, there is no place for that in any society. And it’s a case of bullying that is reprehensible whenever it’s done and is unforgivable. 

Just because people are accused of something doesn’t make them guilty. Often, what it means is that the accusers are up to far worse and hope to divert their crimes to the innocent. Unfortunately, this is a common practice dramatically under-covered by a complicit media that has helped perpetuate it to the doom of our culture ostentatiously. And when I see it, I have never accepted it and never will. We have a very corrupt society because law and order are not respected by those most in their care. And if we ever want that to change, we must see through the smoke screens and the media hype at the real villains who are often the most vicious accusers because what they are attempting to hide is often far worse.

Abuse of Power in Butler County: And it’s not Roger Reynolds doing it

I’ve talked about it before; I sympathize with the Steve Bannon contempt of congress case that is happening at the end of July 2022 more than other cases because it’s personal for me. I don’t communicate with him a lot, be we occasionally do. He has shared some of my articles on social media, and we have exchanged text messages on occasion, so it’s more personal to me to see what is happening to him than it would be if I didn’t know something about the person himself. As I watch him go to federal court every day and the judge lecture the defense about not making a circus out of the case, it is bewildering to think that Eric Holder was found in contempt of Congress in 2012, yet no punishment ever came his way. But because Bannon is a member of the Trump White House, he is being treated like a criminal, guilty before proven innocent, just by association. And all this has made me think of the case of George Lang several years ago, who was facing jail time just for knowing John Boehner, who was poised to be speaker of the house, and the Democrats wanted to sink him through his friends. George, of course, was found innocent, but it was scary for sure. We could all point to misconduct in court proceedings that were purely politically motivated and shake our heads. But we often don’t say much about it because we fear that injustice being turned in our own direction, so we just move along and try to ignore it. Yet, I see the same thing happening to Roger Reynolds in Butler County, where political rivals are accusing him of corruption in his office. And I just don’t see it in any of the indictments, for which a 6th came out just recently to add to the pile, intent on knocking him out of office. It’s an election year, some rivals want Roger out as a political character, and they’ll do what they must do to sink him. 

Believe me; I’d rather talk about a million other things than this case, which I’ve discussed in detail. I’d prefer to leave all this mess to the courts to decide but based on a ridiculous article by Jennifer Edwards Baker from Fox 19 about the details of the 6th indictment against Roger Reynolds, which now involves Lakota schools, the issue is so preposterous that we just can’t ignore it. Obviously, the prosecution in the case against Roger, much like the case against Steve Bannon, doesn’t have much to go on, so they are prosecuting the case in the court of public opinion through reporters who might sway public sentiment ahead of upcoming elections. And that is the entire goal of the proceedings. And we can’t ignore the case because it could be any of us falsely accused. It’s not that I love Roger Reynolds. I think he has been an excellent auditor. But he’s made political enemies over the years, which is all part of the blood sport of politics. I think he could handle many things better regarding social interactions, but I recognize that he’s an A-Type personality, as is Sheriff Jones, and a clash among those types of people is bound to happen. I see it as more of a human resource problem than a legal one. If those two people have problems, they should resolve them in some other way than in political tricks ahead of elections and wasting the time of courts for personal vendettas, which is clearly the case with this indictment against Roger involving Lakota schools.   

The Fox 19 article says many things that could easily be misconstrued, leaving out all the relevant factors, such as all the axes to grind among public employees, especially those who handle money. The indictment indicates that Lakota schools were due to get back $750,000 from the auditor’s office. Roger suggested to the treasurer Jenni Logan that they spend that money on the Four Bridges Golf Course in a partnership. A whole series of emails between Jenni and the school attorney show an interest in Roger’s proposal. Ultimately, they decided it probably wasn’t a good idea, so the concept was rejected. That was back in 2017, a long time ago. So why is this story coming out now? Jenni is retiring on August 1st, 2022, and this is something for the road that fits into the motivations of Sheriff Jones and his political needs regarding putting someone else in the seat of the Butler County Auditor. So, they completely made up the word “coercion” in the indictment and tried to build a case that forced Roger to prove he wasn’t guilty of it due to pressure from public opinion, rather than proving that Roger actually used coercion in any way during the proposed spending of the money. When people see $750,000, they might think that’s a lot of money, but in reality, within the budget of Lakota, it’s much less than 1% of their expenditures and is actually about 11 or 12 teachers. Teachers make a lot of money, despite what the unions say about compensation. I can easily see how Roger would suggest that Jenni spend the money on something more useful, like an elevated lifestyle for the students of Lakota, rather than just blowing it on more activist teachers. Jenni must have thought the idea a good one because she pursued it through emails which are part of the case. But she did so voluntarily. That is not coercion; it’s a discussion among professional adults. 

All this doesn’t change my opinion of Roger Reynolds. As I indicated, I could tell stories all day long about court cases that were purely intended to destroy a political rival and had nothing to do with actual justice. I mentioned a few here based on personal experience. But it’s quite common as a practice. I’m all for law and order, but justice should be blind. What is going on with Roger Reynolds is that laws are being applied against a political rival instead of uniformly applied. It’s an abuse of authority, but it’s not Roger doing the abuse. It’s the accusers, not the recipient. I’ll still be voting for Roger Reynolds in the upcoming election. All the people participating in the investigation against him should be trying to work with Roger instead of getting rid of him over their personal problems they might have. Destroying people’s lives is not the way to solve a problem. It might be common, but it’s certainly not right.

The courts are not private playgrounds to bully people into fight resolution that might have been settled on a playground when everyone was kids. As adults, judges, attorneys, and media bottom feeders are not replacements for fists to the face. When the courts are abused, as they are clearly being abused in this Roger Reynolds case and the case of Steve Bannon, that gives politics and our justice system a bad name, and everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves, as far as I’m concerned, all six of these indictments against Roger Reynolds are political witch hunts. If I had been Roger, I would have handled things differently, where there was no question as to blurred lines. But social mistakes aren’t against the law. Intent to commit a crime is, and to assume intent where there clearly isn’t any evidence, just for the political theater of altering an election is despicable at best and gross abuse of authority at the very least.

Butler County’s Version of Liz Cheney: As Thomas Hall said of Sheriff Jones, “he’s a bully, using his office for political motives until people stand up to him”

When I first heard about this sixth charge from the Butler County Sheriff’s Department, as they have been investigating Roger Reynolds as the auditor for several accusations of corruption, I thought it was ridiculous before. But now, it had become just as much of a kangaroo court as the January 6th Commission for which Liz Cheney was leading in an attempt to keep President Trump off the 2024 presidential ticket. Roger Reynolds has been an excellent auditor in Butler County for a long time, and he has a political rival in Sheriff Jones who wants to show him how much political power he has, and the two have been at it for well over a year now. And instead of fighting in a parking lot somewhere, this is how modern bullies fight; they use the legal system as a weapon against their political opponents. I watched in bewilderment how a grown man like Sherrif Jones could have such a press conference announcing so much of nothing as he did with this latest stack of accusations against Roger, declaring that this latest one on the pile was some kind of big crime of corruption in line with the recent case of P.G. Sittenfeld from Cincinnati who was just found guilty of similar charges. In Roger’s case, he is nothing like the dirty politicians like P.G. Sittenfeld or the very dirty politics that occurred in the FirstEnergy case in Columbus, which isn’t about money at all. The FirstEnergy controversy is an attack by the political left against the Ohio energy grid and using political infighting among Republicans to hide it. When you see cases like this, where a Sheriff is so personally involved in finding anything to knock off a political rival within the Republican Party, you can tell easily that it’s not a case about the crime but about power and control over other people.

I know the characters involved in the new indictment, such as Jenni Logan, the treasurer from Lakota schools. She stated she thought Roger Reynolds was asking Lakota to invest money owed back to the District into a golf academy at Four Bridges. Ben Dibble, who was president of the school board around that time in 2017, was involved as well, according to the liberal activist from Fox 19, Jennifer Edwards Baker, who would love to erode away the very good Republican Party of Butler County any way possible. She’s been at it for a while, and area Republicans have been targeted for anything resembling impropriety. Of course, that’s tough because many of the modern Republicans are not like they were back in the Michael Fox days or when Bob Shelley was a trustee in Liberty Township. Lakota has their own problems, and if there was some incidental conversation about a golf academy from money coming back out of the auditor’s office, which Roger Reynolds represents, it was likely out of polite conversation. I’ve seen the lunch circuit Jenni Logan has been a part of for a long time, and I understand how talk can be made. For a while, especially before Covid, almost everywhere I went to lunch, I saw Jenni Logan and Matt Miller, the Lakota superintendent, there talking with other people. I can easily see in such meetings how talk about how money should be spent would occur. Is that legal or illegal? Well, suppose we start picking pepper out of fly droppings like this over legal issues meant to show the sheriff’s department’s power over things people say and go from there. In that case, we will likely create a business and political environment where nobody can talk to anybody about anything anywhere. Knowing the characters involved in this latest indictment, it didn’t change a thing about my opinion about Roger Reynolds. I will still happily vote for him and support him in the upcoming elections. I care more about what good of a job he has done for my community than what kind of political enemies he has made along the way. And after that press conference by Jones, I could only conclude that he has now become Butler County’s own version of Liz Cheney, who hates President Trump so much that she would attempt to bend the law and waste endless amounts of money in investigations just to keep him out of the political theater.

The level of ridiculousness really overflowed when Sheriff Jones tried to bring up Thomas Hall, who is a current State Rep running for the 46th District, which now includes Liberty Township.   Jones indicated he was continuing to investigate Thomas Hall for conflicts of interest even though a recent Keith Faber report from way back in 2018 and 2019 failed to show anything wrong, even under a microscope of a state audit generated based on what people “say.” Those old-style political hits aren’t going to work in this new world where people have seen so much done against President Trump. The public is much more savvy about these things than they used to be. In reaction to Sheriff Jones indicating he was going to continue investigating Thomas Hall, whom Jones is supporting a rival to run against Hall in the primary on August 2nd, Hall simply called Jones a “bully.” Hall said specifically to the Journal News, “this whole thing is ridiculous, for the sheriff to want an investigation I think is wrong, using his office for political motives when there’s an election 19 days from today. (when the statement was made and referring to the August 2nd primary race)  The sheriff is a bully and will continue to do what he wants until people stand up to him.” That’s one of the reasons I’m supporting Thomas Hall; he’s a good, sharp young man who can handle the heat in the kitchen and make a wonderful meal with it. And the sheriff doesn’t like him because he won’t kiss the ring and allow Jones to be a token kingmaker. 

I’ve talked to Roger Reynolds, and I know why Jones doesn’t like him, at least from Roger’s perspective. Roger runs a great auditor’s office in Butler County. People say all kinds of things, and if the roles were reversed, Sheriff Jones could easily find himself on an indictment list based on “what people say.” People could say that Jones is a bully because he wants to put the fear of the law into local trustees who vote on budgets from which his family and friends benefit. Jones has family and friends employed all over Butler County, and he doesn’t like it when they get laid off for not showing up for work. I know Roger pushed for more transparency on how money gets shown to the public, and Jones wasn’t a fan. And from there, their relationship, which had been a good one, fell apart. Those things happen; I see it as a human resource issue of county employees fighting over power and prestige. But when that hatred escalates to the level where a sheriff is willing to abuse his power to the extent he has with Roger Reynolds and Thomas Hall, purely over political power within the Republican Party, then it becomes a big problem. What we really have is a Butler County version of Liz Chaney. This name used to have significant meaning in the Republican Party until she was revealed to be a liberal hack by the Trump administration. And the phony hearings happening now in Washington D.C. are the same phony hearings that have been thrown at Roger Reynolds because he has pushed for more transparency and accountability for public officials. Not less. And for all the reasons that the political establishment hates Trump, they hate people like Roger Reynolds and Thomas Hall. And when it comes time to vote for them, I will happily pick Roger and Thomas every time over the opinions of Sheriff Jones.

Thomas Hall Comes Out Squeaky Clean: Ohio Ethics Investigation by Keith Faber shows a great track record and no wrongdoing

It’s a few weeks away from the August 2nd primary for the Ohio Representative election between the incumbent Thomas Hall for the newly drawn up 46th District seat and his challenger Matt King.  And it wouldn’t be a typical election cycle if there wasn’t some kind of dirt being thrown by somebody.  After all, a lot of money gets tossed into the ring from numerous contributors, and they all want to see their pick win the election, and the belief that people can be significantly influenced by finance and sentiment perpetuates a lot of malice.   That is how the typical blood sport of politics works, and what we usually end up with in office, if done well, is the best possible candidate that we can get because of the grueling process.  But when you see bad behavior in that election process, we must talk about it because it shows where the real cracks of a campaign genuinely emerge.  And in the case of Thomas Hall, he is so squeaky clean that any attempts to say otherwise about him come out sounding ridiculously overinflated.  And that’s what emerged from a shot of desperation coming not so much from the challenger for the 46th District, Matt King, but certainly from those who want to use Matt to knock out Thomas from the very high bar he has set because many in politics simply don’t want to live up to that level of measure.  There was some controversy coming out of a group “Ohio News Hotline” that was trying to stir up trouble for Thomas, and an Ohio Ethics Investigation was discussed based on the years 2018 and 2019, hoping that they could dig up something to make Thomas look bad.  In short, there was nothing there, but the elements who wanted to knock off Thomas Hall were trying to stir up trouble, so setting the record straight is mandated.

It had been a good week for Representative Hall, the week after the 4th of July 2022.  I had just reported on how great he did at a local Tea Party meeting where he made an excellent case for why he should be re-elected to a somewhat hostile crowd.  Then on Thursday, he spoke at Lakota schools and did a fantastic job there as well.  Probably too well because Democrats and RINO Republicans who are very uncomfortable with Thomas Hall moving his influence into Liberty Township as the new 46th District is mapped out aren’t comfortable with the strong record of conservative politics Hall represents.  He’s rock-solid in every Republican measure based on his track record, and the NRA just came out with a glowing endorsement of Hall, so plenty of political enemies were stirred up by those two public speeches.  Then on Friday, there was a fund-raiser with several Democrats involved, and they were more than energized to support Matt King, hoping to take down the very conservative Thomas Hall.  Now that’s not unusual.  I know Matt and the King family, and they tend to be solid conservatives.  But Matt is unknown as a politician, so obviously, Democrats are hoping for that variable to help them, so they support King for obvious reasons.  Thomas is a known threat to them as opposed to gaining leverage over someone they might be able to call in favors later because they helped with the campaign.  Sheriff Jones has been working against Thomas because he doesn’t like the strong voting record of Hall, so there some inner Republican theatrics going on as well that have been fueling Democrats to help King gain some steam, much the way Democrats got involved in the governor primary helping put DeWine over the top in that recent election. 

That’s when the timing of the ethics report, done by Keith Faber, became an inflated issue and an anonymous tip attempted to stir up trouble through the Ohio News Hotline, prompting a media hit piece against Thomas Hall.  I also know Keith; I think he’s a good guy too.  Investigations like what his office does, I think, are great because they keep politicians clean.  It’s a good check on the balance of power, and without the Auditors Office from the State there to investigate, there would be much more corruption in politics than there is.  While all this talk was going on, P.G. Sittenfeld in Cincinnati was found guilty of bribery, so these topics were fresh on the minds of the desperate when the contents of the Ohio Ethics Investigation on Hall were made available.  Now here’s where unethical behavior starts to really show itself.  I’ve read the report on Thomas Hall from Keith’s office, which is squeaky clean.  There is nothing bad or disingenuous there at all.  But the radical elements and Democrats who want Hall gone tried to take things out of context to at least create doubt in people who haven’t read the report and never plan to.  Just the mention of an ethics report might be enough to inspire them to make a change from Thomas to King on August 2nd.  As mentioned, the report covered 2018-2019, but it wasn’t released to the public until June 16th, 2022, just a month and a half before the election.  That in itself is more than a bit suspicious. 

The report states that Thomas did not recuse himself as a trustee on matters involving the fire department in Madison Township, where his father, a hero who stopped the school shooting at the school there, was the fire chief.  In those instances, Thomas sought legal counsel on the matter and provided the proper distance required when dealing with financial matters.  But on voting for equipment and supplies for the fire department, he participated with the other trustees under explicit direction from that legal advice.  The report from the auditor simply mentions that it was unusual.  Not that it was inappropriate.  Then the report shows that Madison Township had some late tax filings and negative balances during Thomas’ term.  This was a problem with the fiscal officer they had at the time and was a common problem many trustees face.  Nothing improper, just commonplace management problems.  And with all the digging that the vast resources of Keith Faber’s office could utilize over a lengthy period of time and sit on a desk somewhere for three years until just before the August 2nd election, there turned out to be nothing to see regarding anything improper done by Thomas Hall.  I would propose that the timing of the report’s release and distribution to the public was meant to create doubt in the public to affect the election.  By the time people learned that the report contained no wrongdoing by Thomas Hall, the election would be over, and from the Democrat perspective, hopefully, King would win the election.   For the enemies of Thomas Hall, all they need to do is create doubt which was where the tip to the Ohio News Hotline went out to stir up enough buzz in the final two weeks of the campaign to push some voters maybe away.  The report was and is a last-ditch effort by a political class, both Republicans and Democrats, who don’t want the high measure Thomas Hall has forced them all to live up to.  Very few could go through a Keith Faber Ohio Ethics Investigation and come out as clean as Thomas did.  And that truly scares them.   Another term of Thomas Hall may make it so they can’t compete in the political world ever in the future.  And for voters, that’s very good news indeed.

The Arrest of Peter Navarro is Unforgivable: Compliance to a corrupt government is not an option, Revenge is coming

I’m glad to see that Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon are pushing back against the obvious harassment they have had to endure as a result of the bogus January 6th committee in congress, especially after the arrest of Navarro at the airport in front of everyone when it was clear they meant to embarrass him to the furthermost extent they could to make an example of him. Navarro, the author of the excellent book In Trump Time and a member of the Trump White House team regarding trade policy, is a similar target as others have been, such as Roger Stone, where the government, guilty of many crimes of their own, have been seeking to destroy members of the Trump White House to send a message just like mobsters would, that they were not welcome in town, and that if they chose to play in the world, they controlled, the targets would be punished. Well, that’s not how it works in the world, especially not in America. Peter Navarro or nobody else from the Warroom podcast owes the January 6th Committee anything. The Jan. 6th Committee in congress led by Nancy Pelosi and known scandalous characters like Adam Schiff is meant to hide their complicity in election fraud, which is the entire point of why people were upset on January 6th, 2021 anyway.   To talk about anything else is simply harassment and nothing else. The purpose of the Commission and the ridiculous arrest of Peter Navarro is to show the public that the government is in control and that if you step out of line, the power of government will come down on anybody, even against someone who has “executive privilege.” 

Taking the emotion out of the situation is hard because if there’s one thing I can’t stand in the world is a bully. But this behavior indicates that the other side is losing. For those who hear stories like this and get worried, or perhaps worry that the FBI might show up outside your house too and arrest you, understand that the reason for the show of force is because they must cover up their lack of integrity and value. And when you are missing those things, whatever side you represent on a matter is soon to fall. The abuse of government power is meant to hide the lack of validity that the perpetrators actually have. They are very vulnerable to their personal ideology; in other countries where people are much more compliant than Americans, overhanded efforts like what was done to Navarro work. But that’s not going to work in America. They have gotten away with it up to this point because Americans have had a pretty good life and tend to let other people live and let live. But when you mess with their lives and freedoms and put them under some heavy-handed authority, that’s an entirely different matter. A fraction of the population puts compliance ahead of justice 100% of the time, but in the United States, those people are much less common than they are in Europe or Asia. And what the January 6th Commission assumes is that compliance with authority is the priority of most people, which is a terrible miscalculation for them. Fighting back against the tyrannical authority is what is expected, at a minimum, and Peter Navarro, in reaction to what the FBI did to him during the arrest at Reagan International Airport, is doing just that.

To set a precedent for the future, the arrest of Peter Navarro at the airport, rather than at his home as he lives right next to the FBI building in D.C., and strip searching him, putting him in leg irons, in solitary confinement, and using John Hinkley’s cell to do it all—the attempted assassin of Ronald Reagan—was a panicked overreaction to the political conditions of the future. To punch the MAGA movement in the face the way they did only now opens the door to having much worse done to them in the future. The Trump administration tried to work with opposition forces to build more of a team environment, but the SWAMP creatures of D.C. wanted nothing to do with him. Instead, they sought to destroy the Trump presidency by throwing everything they had at him and his staff, Navarro being one of them. And now they are starting to panic because it’s evident that Trump won the 2020 election, the election fraud is being exposed, people do not like Joe Biden, even nonpolitical people, and the fear that Trump will be back is a real terror to these corrupt people. So, they should be worried because they know what they have done. But going so far over the top and arresting Navarro the way they did, knowing that they are only making the other side angrier, looks like a suicide plot more than a harassment effort. But to analyze their situation, they don’t understand how to do anything else but harass people. There is no second strategy. They have top-heavy force and nothing else. That’s the real indicator of their true position.

Any fantasies that the members of the January 6th Commission and their Beltway supporters had about China-style authority control over the population are out of the window. That kind of behavior is not going to work in America. Americans gave those authority figures the benefit of the doubt so long as they stayed out of their lives. But the genuine fear about the January 6th Commission is that people were mad that day; they were angry at election fraud and having their President taken from them. And by arresting Peter Navarro, for no reason at all, only to show they could, they have only ignited more anger. Compliance is not on the minds of these angry people. Everyone has learned some hard lessons over the last several years, as the relationships of many politicians with China have become more commonly known. We saw what the political class wanted to do as authority figures during Covid, which was an artificial pandemic that they are still holding on to; Americans aren’t going to sit around and be pushed by bullies. There will be payback for all this, and as it happens, the aggressors will only have themselves to blame. The election fraud that the January 6th Commission was meant to hide unleashed an anger that, at the time, only a few felt comfortable publically displaying. That anger is real, and even grandma living alone in her house with a shotgun and an old blind dog, is feeling it. They want revenge against this out-of-control government, and they will elect President Trump again to get it. People are counting the days until they can cast a vote against this tyranny, and if that vote is taken too, well, then January 6th will look like kids playing on the playground. The government is not in charge of the people in America. Just because people have been friendly to the government up to this point, it is because they didn’t believe that the government was as corrupt as it obviously is. But now everyone knows better, and the arrest of Peter Navarro only confirms what many have long suspected. And they aren’t going to just sit back and take it. They will fight back, and the other side won’t like the results.

‘The Value of Corruption’ at The Patriot Awards: Knowing the bad guys in a confusing world

It was an honor to be invited to speak at the 20th Century Theater in Oakley, Ohio, which is a classic building in northern Cincinnati, on a topic, I feel very strongly about, “The Value of Corruption.” People enjoyed the speech I gave, so I present it here in a couple of versions, one in a way that I usually provide in my walk and talk sessions. The other is from the event itself. It’s a nice theater with a lot of sound bouncing around, so I am presenting it both ways for the clarity of the presentation. The Patriot Awards were meant to reward hardworking patriots and constitutional defenders from the Southern Ohio area, and it was a very nice tribute to American patriotism. The purpose of my speech was to articulate what the fight is we are really fighting in the present state. The word patriotism gets thrown around a lot, but it can be hard to really get a mind around concepts that have often been with us all our lives that point us in the other direction. For instance, until a few years ago, it was fashionable to think about someone like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg positively because we admire the wealth they gained in life in a capitalist culture. But we know now that money is only a tool for them to gain power over others, so we need some new definitions of good before we can actually see and understand the kind of villainy they have perpetrated against the United States. And that all starts by understanding the wonderful measures of money. 

Money is not the root of all evil; it reveals it, which is a chapter in my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business. We typically measure the value of money by what it can buy, not so much by what people will do to get it. But just changing that simple measurement gives the value of money a completely different understanding, which I find useful in understanding corruption, which I find very valuable in this increasingly volatile world. Under traditional measures of money, we have loved Bill Gates and many of the billionaires like him who participated in this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. And they have used that poor measurement to hide their treacherous actions against America. They have used their money as a weapon against the country that gave them the best opportunity to make it, which leaves us with all kinds of emotions directed at people like that. So a measurement that is more conducive to reality is something people want. It was appreciated at The Patriot Awards for sure because people looking for constitutional preservation are certainly trying to sort out their feelings on those types of matters. And there is nothing that brings people who are paying attention more anxiety than watching the Biden administration and the various characters at the World Economic Forum treat America like some second class nation where the spoils of war were already being divided up by the looters of the world as if nobody in North America had anything to say about it.

In my speech, I told several stories that point out the differences in how Americans think about things as opposed to the rest of the world, especially in Europe and Asia. Not that those other cultures are bad, but the way they think is not conducive to making money for the value of what making it provides to a good and moral society. Making money can produce extreme villains, like Bill Gates and George Soros, but it does more to reveal the content of the character of those making the money that otherwise would never be seen. Much of that social mask is always present at the World Economic Forum, where I call them the Desecrators of Davos because they hide their need to control others behind masks of social good. But when you have a measure of corruption, by seeing what people are willing to do to get money and what they aren’t, then you can see many truths they would otherwise like to hide behind. That comes to a sharp point in my example of the wild west saloon and the various characters who would like to appeal to the new sheriff through relationships forged exclusively to give them an advantage in making money. To learn how to clean up a town of corruption, the most crucial factor is to what extent people crave as much money as they can get through the easiest means of obtaining it. In the case of Bill Gates, it’s all about vaccines for him. Not that he wants more money to buy cars, women, and homes, but because he wants to run the world’s governments to satisfy his beliefs about climate change, which is more of a fanatical religion to him than a practical science. 

I have examples of corruption regarding Mitch McConnell, the Republican senator that many would agree is an extreme RINO, in my speech. He plays a conservative on TV, but in truth, he uses his office as leader of his party to protect his family’s shipping business with China. Mitch is pro-China, all the time, and he has shown to what extent he would attack anybody who threatens that relationship. He is hardly what we would call a real conservative, but we wouldn’t otherwise understand his behavior if it wasn’t for the Value of Corruption. We call people like Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton corrupt all the time, and they deserve to be referred to that way. But much of what they do is hidden behind a façade of kindness hidden behind the charity, which allows the value of money to hide what they truly were willing to do to obtain it. For years these political criminals have been able to hide their malice behind the good tidings of charity, much in the way that was discussed in my speech. If the new sheriff of a town announces who he is, then all the corrupt criminals would seek to cover up who they are with ass kissing and boot licking, which is very common in modern-day politics. By luring the corruption out into the open, the way the Trump administration has in recent times, it has shown many of these political characters for what they always were, which wasn’t so easy for people to see because the criminal conduct was so aggressively hidden behind the definitions we had for money, which prevented us from seeing the true nature of the participants. So I was happy to give the speech and to that specific group. As I said to them, it only takes a small minority of people with value to beat a whole society of corrupt people because of the nature of the people conducting the behavior. They need to loot off the value of people who have it in order to live so that always puts them at a disadvantage over those who have value. This makes them easy to beat once people understand the level of corruption they are dealing with regarding those people. Corrupt people are easy to beat once their leverage of cover is revealed. And that is the case with modern politics as well. The people fighting for patriotism and constitutional preservation will always have the upper hand because it’s what they have that the corrupt want most because, they don’t have that value, to begin with, and must lie, steal, and cheat to get it.

Trump Swings For The Fences: The Kemp win in Georgia only means the President can afford to take chances

I always thought that the David Purdue race for governor in Georgia would be an uphill battle. Trump’s endorsement has a lot of power, and his record is outstanding. Still, it would be a stretch in Georgia to beat the incumbent Brian Kemp for many of the same reasons it was going to be hard to beat the establishment RINO Mike DeWine in Ohio. It’s hard to beat an incumbent for one because they have the power of the office to run from. And it takes a real organized effort to knock someone off the top of the mountain, and David Purdue didn’t have that. Trump’s endorsement was a revenge pick, more than a practical one, and down the stretch, the money didn’t line up with the passion. If Trump didn’t have a personal vendetta against Kemp, he likely wouldn’t have put his name behind Purdue. David Purdue never was able to define his campaign as anything other than fighting election fraud, and voters in Georgia were obviously looking for something to vote for, not against. There’s a lot of funny business regarding elections in Georgia. Still, as I said leading up to the primary election, the establishment types were betting everything they had on Georgia, so it would be tough to do anything there. In many ways, I would point to this circumstance and remind everyone not to take anything for granted when it comes to the general elections in the fall. The SWAMP is not going to go quietly in the night. They have everything to lose and will fight to keep it; whether it’s money, cheating, lying, stealing, whatever they have to do, they will do it. And it will take more than what David Purdue put forth in Georgia to beat them.

The media was all too happy to underline the loss of Trump’s endorsement. They ignored all the other wins he has had, which was to be expected. The Never Trumper types are hoping this means that the Trump brand is damaged forever and that they might be able to put up Mike Pence, someone from the Trump administration but isn’t Trump. To me, it’s obviously wishful thinking. David Purdue was never for what Trump is and always acted as a person drug into the race to challenge Kemp rather than someone who was passionate about winning. So the Trump endorsement has its limits. Trump can afford to swing for the fences, and he does. That has given him more home runs than not, so the essence of the Kemp win isn’t so much a strikeout but rather the affordability that Trump has to take risks on candidates that might not otherwise have a chance. Obviously, voters liked Kemp in Georgia and needed more to take a turn from him. They needed more than election fraud to drive their passions.

Yet there is a more sinister tone to the haughty banter after the Kemp win, the hope by the media and Never Trumper types that election fraud was not something that voters cared about. Purdue made it a one-issue race, and after the primary election, it’s clear that voters wanted more than that. Election fraud is hard for people to admit to, like acknowledging that a loved one is an alcoholic or that a spouse is cheating on you. Mainstreamers want to believe that they can vote and that it will be counted honestly so they can return to their lives without worrying about it. So there is a natural reluctance to put the thought out of their heads. While most believe there was election fraud in the 2020 election, they don’t want to live with the knowledge that it will require them to do something more severe, like scrutinizing those who count the votes. They want to believe that Brian Kemp is a good person because to admit otherwise will require work on their part that they aren’t willing to commit to. People are prone to ignore an injustice if it means they can live in peace. And obviously, there are many in the Beltway culture, Mike Pence included, who are counting on that timidity to allow them to stay relevant in the political world. It should be remembered that Trump picked Pence to be his Vice President because he wanted to drive a wedge into the Never Trumpers, to begin with, to put one in his administration. Trump did that with a lot of people because he thought the strength of his personality could convert them over to justice. I would say that, for the most part, Trump significantly improved the conditions around him. Still, he was never going to be able to use his sizeable positive personality to change the behavior of those who insist on keeping their minds below the line. 

The hatred for Trump is to hate the concept of Making America Great Again. Instead, the Never Trumpers, including Mike Pence, believe more in the survival of institutions rather than in reshaping them for positive outcomes. So it wasn’t a loss for Trump that David Purdue never could get that message across. If it had been Trump running, the priorities would have been different during the campaign. Trump would have been “for” things rather than just stating that he would fight election fraud, which few people want to admit is a problem, especially those who have committed it to preserve institutional power. MAGA is powerful as a movement, but you can’t use it as a golf ball driver when you really need a short putt. You might still be able to make the shot, but it’s not the best tool to use. In truth, Georgia, in the decertification process, isn’t needed. There is plenty of criminal conduct already proven in Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, with governors who will get behind the decertification movement. Georgia was the last refuge of the Never Trumpers, and we learned a lot by watching them in this primary race.

In many ways, watching all the anti-Trump forces spike the football over the Kemp win is like a football game where the losing team has been down 60 to 0, and they get a field goal at the end of the game. The crowd cheers because there is something to be happy about, but they will still lose the game. The disappointment for the MAGA voters is that they wanted the shutout. They wanted as much of a perfect record for Trump as possible. But, Trump is willing to take chances. He does not play it safe. And as a result, sometimes there will be misses. Trump has playing golf seven holes in one, and you get that by hitting the ball hard and trying to skip all the little putts that get you to the green by hitting over the obstacles or through them. Sometimes that means that the ball will go into the rough. But if you play it safe, as many people do, you won’t get those holes in one. So by force of personality, Trump has an excellent win ratio. He can afford a David Purdue here and there, and all it means to the political world is that the Trump brand is so strong that he can take risks others can’t afford to. It doesn’t mean that the Never Trumpers will start winning, and MAGA is on the decline.

Yes, There is Lots of CRT at Lakota: The evidence was at the school board meeting that occurred on 5.9.22

I say it all the time, don’t judge people based on what they say, but by what they do. And over the question of CRT (Critical Race Theory) in Lakota schools, the answer is undoubtedly there for all to see by what they do. Even though the radical elements of the school attempted to hide their bad conduct by making the new school board member Darbi Boddy the center of attention, they showed their true colors at the school board meeting on May 9th, 2022. It was a marathon meeting that went over 3 hours long. I was there for over 4 hours, and it ended with an impassioned speech by Issac Adi, wanting to put a definition to the question about CRT being taught in Lakota schools. The teachers, of course, deny it, as does the school administrative leadership. But the evidence is in the students themselves. They use all the CRT language in what they say about “white privilege” and the values of American life in a historical context. Even though an audit of the teaching materials at Lakota would undoubtedly show massive amounts of CRT present in every classroom, you don’t even have to go that far to see it. On the topic of sexual grooming in the halls of Lakota and CRT, all you have to do is look at the pictures the radicals put on the backs of their chairs for the official video of the Lakota school board meeting to learn all you need to about what is going on in the classrooms. They changed the names of CRT to other things to shake people off the trail but to see what’s really going on and study what the kids are learning about their country and society in general; the evidence is right there. It might be by a different name or method, but the intent is the same.

The anger at Darbi Boddy was that she didn’t follow the school’s rules to protect teachers from outside judgment and for the public not to learn about the progressive radicalism seething within the halls of one of the largest public schools in Ohio. Just for trying to discover the extent of the damage, the Lakota superintendent Matt Miller issued a trespassing order against school board member Darbi Boddy which made national headlines, banning her from setting foot on any school grounds–even though she is a member of management. At the end of the meeting, Issac struggled to find the words to define CRT and how to find it in the teaching methods at Lakota. Darbi had gone into the schools themselves to find that evidence. But truly, the evidence came to the school board meeting that night in all its ugliness. And it could be seen and heard in the speakers who attempted to fire Darbi Boddy from the school board just for asking the questions about CRT, which they want so much to conceal. And in their anger, they displayed all the proof we needed. 

Critical Race Theory has been around for quite a few decades, and it started coming to us through entertainment programming, such as what MTV was famous for. The 1619 Project sought to make CRT more of a civil rights platform politically by putting the teaching into the schools through federal and state dollars flowed down into every public school. This has been going on for a long time. Their goal was to reinterpret American history and turn the slavery issue into a means to backdoor Marxism into American life behind the guilt of racism. The 1619 Project entirely means to erase the start of American life and repurpose its creation as invalid because it was built on slave labor starting in 1619 when the first slaves were brought to North America. Of course, these attackers of American life get all the history wrong; it was the British government that brought slavery to America. The Revolution that created America started the process of freeing slaves globally, and it was Republicans that eventually did it. That is the true history that should be taught in our schools. But students being taught by The 1619 Project flow down influence through the front groups like Black Lives Matters have been taught that white people have privilege and that they owed black people reparations for that privilege. Until very recently, until really last summer after the release of Mark Levine’s book American Marxism most Americans weren’t aware of this teaching going on in their public schools. School boards were trying to put a friendly face on the activity because there wasn’t much they could do about it, so they tried to hide the fact from even themselves with all the feel-good awards that go on politically. But the effect on the kids was unmistakable. Children are now the products of this teaching, and it shows in what they have learned and now communicate to the world. 

I spoke at the 2-hour and 51-minute mark in defense of Darbi and to illustrate how sexual grooming had been introduced to children through the Pride Movement, which has hijacked rainbows to soft-sell alternative sexual lifestyles to young people. Of course, this led to a lot of heckling from the audience that wasn’t heard much by the video audio because the microphones were feeding the video source, and the audience didn’t have microphones. But you can see by my reaction when the audience was being ostentatious, and they were like that all evening, for the entire length of the meeting. They came to fight and prove their point. And the purpose of their aggression was to hide what they were up to. And it worked for the most part. This isn’t the kind of thing that the media circus provoked by the school board to get rid of Darbi Boddy wanted to report on. Their story angle was that the community didn’t support the new school board member and the demands for her resignation forced her off the board. But that’s not the story they got, and you could see the disappointment on their faces around 10 PM that night once they had missed all their media deadlines for the 11 PM news. Rather, the support for Darbi Boddy from the audience was much stronger than anybody thought it would be. I was certainly one, but I wasn’t the only one. And that was with the audience packed with radical lunatics who obviously have a very aggressive political agenda against the kids in the school, as was evident by the backs of their chairs and the signs they held up during the whole meeting. 

To know that CRT is being taught in Lakota schools, just look at what they do and what kinds of kids have been produced from the public school. Listen to what they say, which was a lot during that meeting, especially toward the end. Then judge that based on what they do, the signs, the heckling, the attempt to pack the room to give the media cameras the illusion of public sentiment. Like I said to them, the room was a small one; it didn’t represent anything close to the 8000 voters who had just voted for Darbi Boddy to do precisely what she was in trouble for, to uncover evidence of sexual grooming in Lakota’s classrooms and to get CRT out of the school altogether. She wasn’t going to be able to do that following rules that the teacher’s union created to hide their bad behavior. But in actuality, she didn’t even need to do that much. The evidence was at the school board meeting. Radicalism was apparent for all to see. Many of the people who supported Darbi Boddy were afraid to come and speak, and I can see why. In the video, you can see where my wife got entangled with some of the most vocal radicals in the audience. They called over the police to seek protection because my wife challenged them to a further debate after the meeting was done, and they didn’t want to do it. Most people don’t want to go to a school board meeting to fight, but the radicals clearly came there to do just that.

The media circus created by the school board in an effort to get rid of their newest member-only reported that part of the story, ignoring the worst elements that were openly displayed for all to witness. The only conclusion that could be made from the meeting is that CRT and sexual grooming are happening aggressively in Lakota and all public schools. And that those same radical elements which have been crying to defund the police over the last few years need a taste of their own medicine. Those who don’t want to see CRT in their public schools should develop their own slogan to defund the schools for the damage they are causing our children. The pain that Issac Adi was trying to articulate at the end of the meeting is the unsaid aspect of the whole enterprise. Public schools are very political; they are political indoctrination machines intent on turning our kids against us as a nation. Groups like Black Lives Matters and The 1619 Project have made them so through the funding machine at the federal and state level. We will never see CRT if we attempt to make public schools non-political, which most board members want to do. They want to save public schools and to make them centerpieces of the entire community. But public schools are too far gone for that; the corrosive political influence of Marxist extremists has already been doing their work for many decades. They wanted to blame Darbi for destroying that illusion, and it didn’t work. Rather, the evidence was all around them, and they could not see it because they didn’t want to admit to themselves the obvious. CRT isn’t just all over the walls of Lakota; it’s in the radicals who were the products of public education right in front of their faces. And it was disgusting to see.
