The World Economic Forum Must Control Elections Worldwide to Implement their Plan for Global Domination: The lessons learned from Hillary Clinton

If you search my site here of Hillary Clinton’s name, you will see that I have written hundreds of articles about her guilt and corruption, all of which have turned out to be true. It has taken, in some cases, six years to uncover some of the crimes. Some of her crimes, especially regarding Benghazi, have not been adequately investigated, but time will prove them all to be true. While I enjoy the Glenn Beck’s of the world and Alex Jones’s work, I would distinguish what I have done for over a decade to be much different. I purposely work to keep theater out of my statements, even though the things I say may sound like radical conspiracy theories. How they sound is only relevant to the experience of the consumer of the information. The relevancy of what I say obviously is something I consider essential. Otherwise, I wouldn’t mention it. From my perspective, if I’m talking about it, it’s something you should be concerned about. When I talked about Obama and his illegal presidency, or the crimes of the Clinton family, or the crimes of the current Biden family, election fraud, manufactured viruses like Covid was and distributed by our own people to help the Desecrators of Davos change the world to global communism, I have no plans to say in the future, “oh, my bad. That never came true.” Instead, I expect everything to be proven true, just as this Hillary Clinton case has proven concerning the Sussman trial, which revealed that Hillary Clinton actively promoted the Russian conspiracy with the Trump campaign and many millions of dollars wasted with four years of Hell that followed a properly elected presidency. All because she wanted power and was throwing a fit because she didn’t get it. Never underestimate the evil people will perform to gain power over others. 

So when I say that everyone should expect the World Economic Forum supporters to attempt to use the Monkey Pox or some other virus as a way to try Coronavirus shutdowns 2.0 before the Midterm elections in 2022, I say it with the meaning to take it seriously. I watched all the coverage from this year’s World Economic Forum from Davos this year, and they are clearly delusional. They are not paying attention to global trends toward populism, and it’s not hard to read between the lines as to why. I’ve said it for a while now, the Democrats in America, and the progressives around the world, have no plans for America ever to have a fair election again. They got caught stealing the 2022 election, as the evidence from the movie 2000 Mules shows clearly. For anybody who wants to debate that fact, just interview those 2000 Mules and trace where their money came from to harvest ballots to put Joe Biden into the White House. With the same confidence that I’ve said everything about Hillary Clinton that has come true, Facebook will turn out to be the bank that paid the cash to all the election fraud mules, and they should all go to jail for what they did to our country. If we had a law enforcement system that wasn’t beyond corruption, the next step for 2000 Mules would be massive investigations and trials in congress. It might take a decade for everyone to admit to it finally, but eventually, they will. But ultimately, it wasn’t just Zuckerberg who stole the 2020 election, it was the entire group of the Desecrators of Davos who did, and for that, we must focus our anger.

The World Economic Forum spent much of the last week of May 2022 talking about its elaborate plans for global domination. But what they didn’t talk about was their need to control all elections worldwide to make it happen. There is no way for them to get votes from the world to support their efforts. There is an assumption in their meeting that voters won’t have a say in their efforts. And it is that aspect of their candor that we should be most alarmed about. At local and state levels, I would caution all public officials to role-play what the next pandemic will be. There is no question that this is why the Biden administration is flirting with giving over American sovereignty to the World Health Organization so that they can manage lockdowns from a centralized United Nations source. They watched how Americans reacted to Covid and the vaccine mandates. That is why the WHO is being tasked with managing future pandemics, taking constitutional law out of the hands of American courts, and placing them into global governance. That means that it will take local officials to challenge their state governors in the future with constitutional challenges, especially those that come from the World Health Organization and the United Nations. The apparent plan is to use another manufactured crisis, just as Covid-19 was manufactured and released by communist China with the help of Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci, as proven in the book, The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert Kennedy Jr., to change election laws and prevent a free and open election in the fall of 2022. The World Economic Forum characters are counting on that to save them from a wave of populism that will destroy all their plans. 

Knowing what the plan is and learning from the past, not to just dismiss something that seems outrageous only to turn out to be true, America at every local level needs to consider the lessons of the Doctrine of Lesser Magistrates to challenge any legal assumptions that might come from the direction of the World Health Organization and ultimately, the World Economic Forum. Their plans are obvious, they already have our CDC and Biden administration in their corner, and none of them can afford a real election in America this coming November. So now is the time to role-play just as they do for implementing viruses, as they have just done with the Monkey Pox. We must role-play our counteraction against their methods with legal challenges of our own. Instead of accepting an Executive Order health emergency to shut down our economy this coming fall to hide the terrible inflation numbers and the impact of actual in-person voting, we must have a legal challenge ready before the executive orders are even written or before a blue state governor like Ohio has in DeWine attempts to use emergency power to take control of everything, all in an effort to manipulate the election results that might put a wet blanket over the World Economic Forum’s plans for global communism and dominion of all national sovereignties. The lessons we have learned from the past have been costly. So this time, lets put them to good use; let’s learn from history and be ready for them when they do attack through the back door of emergency powers because they have no choice but to try. We are not dealing with honest people; these are international criminals who seek protection from justice by world domination, so let’s not take them lightly, as many did with Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is a product of these criminals; she’s small potatoes. The big cats are in this Desecrators of Davos group, and they are out for blood. They have told us so, so take them at their word and take nothing for granted.

Public Education is Over: It’s a nationwide change that isn’t going away

It’s not just the actions at Lakota schools in Northern Cincinnati that brought me to where I am now. I have spoken to dozens and dozens of people over the last few weeks regarding the Darbi Boddy school board drama, and I feel really sorry for the people who have been hoping that public education could be saved somehow. But as I have said to all those people and more, I just don’t see the controversy at Lakota. I see personality problems, but as I’ve said, whenever you get a clash of change agencies crashing into a very static institution, things are bound to get pushy. I never thought otherwise of the school board at Lakota. Instead, there are national trends that are forming in the background that are very much part of the Lakota story. What is about to happen at Lakota, with major resignations coming up due to the pressure of the changes, is going to happen in all public schools. I hoped to be wrong about it and hoped that with a decent school board, some form of public education for the people who do love it might last. But it’s quite clear to me that public education is impossibly broken and that the role of a modern school board is to manage the decline. Long gone are the days when Friday Night Football would rally behind the great local quarterback who threw 400 yards and four touchdowns to unite the community behind the sports page on a Saturday morning. And college recruits were in the stands handing out scholarships like Halloween candy. No, those days are over, forever. The people I have talked to as fall out from the controversies at Lakota are all well-intentioned. But they do not see the obvious because it’s simply too painful for them. They do love public education, and they really don’t have the heart for what’s coming.

Of course, you do want to know what’s coming and why now is such a pinnacle time. Well, institutions are collapsing along with the economy, which is overall the net result of over a century of failed progressive philosophy. They have gone all in, and the public has not been with them. All this became exposed during Covid, the progressive teacher unions, and the highly paid superintendent class that sort of functioned as a barrier between the radicals and the elected school board members. Once the rhythm was broken in the public education cycle, and people learned to live without it, there was no way ever to put Humpty Dumpty back together again. At best, public schools were going to be fragments of their former selves. But then parents learned just how radical the government schools really were. It used to be that many people, including Glenn Beck, were put off by my position on public education at the height of the Tea Party movement.    I was saying that public education was doomed to fail back in 2012 and 2013 when Beck and I had a mutual friend, Doc Thompson, who was trying to broker talk between us to do some radio work on The Blaze, as I used to do on Clear Channel Radio. I was too much of a rock thrower for Glenn Beck at that time of his life, and all avenues between The Blaze and me were cut after President Trump was elected. Soon after, Doc Thompson was mysteriously killed by a train while working directly for Beck in Texas. I was indifferent to Beck. He was a never-Trumper then, and of course, I was all about Trump, so there hasn’t been an opportunity to reconcile. Well, I had Beck’s show on in the background the other day, and he was telling everyone what I said a decade ago, “take your kids out of public schools; they are dangerous for your children. Do it now!” Just ten years ago, it was fringe when I said such things. Now it’s a mainstreamer conservative talk show host with many millions of people listening to him daily saying it. Times have changed a lot, and people are finally starting to listen. 

As I said during the Trump administration, if Covid hadn’t been set loose to destroy the fourth year of the president and hopes for re-election by destroying the American economy, the Department of Education was poised to be dismantled. States were preparing to apply a new funding model to the public school systems, where the money follows the child, not to the school. This would force the unionized institutions to compete for effectiveness. Lakota certainly wasn’t happy about that, and in many ways, Covid saved them from that eventuality. With Joe Biden in the White House, public education won’t see changes, but that’s not saying much. Biden, as of this writing, is at 28% approval. Dinesh D’Souza’s movie 2000 Mules has shown serious proof of direct election fraud funded by Facebook, and institutional politics is trying desperately to keep it all undercover.

Meanwhile, more and more mad moms are getting elected to school boards, moms like Darbi Boddy at Lakota. Even if the school board convinced her to resign, there are hundreds just like her who are winning seats all over the country, and all want the same thing. They want to protect their kids from what they have come to see as an institutional menace to their children where school boards stand between them to keep the peace, to keep those Friday night football games something the community continues to do. But that all came to a crashing end with Covid, and parents found other things to do. 

In the last election, I supported school board members to help bring solutions, people I knew who liked public education more than I did. So a part of me really wanted to be wrong. I knew I wasn’t, but I wanted to be. As they are now, public schools will not survive the transition to a system where the money travels with the student, which will eventually happen. That gives the school boards the task of keeping that managed decline as good as possible so that the failure of public schools does not destroy entire communities. The communities around Lakota have much more going on than being destroyed by a school. Add to the high gas prices, the sudden shortages of items that people used to take for granted, and a political system at the federal level that people didn’t support to begin with; all the old progressive institutions are going to fail, just as the Biden administration is failing. Now that they have their dream candidate in the White House with both houses of Congress under their control, they went too far. They used Covid to grab for powers that terrified many parents who had been on the fence for their entire lives only to come face to face with their greatest fears, the pincushion, rainbow-haired LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ teachers who wanted to turn their tomboy daughters into a Tom and to cram it down their throats and demand that they like it. Well, people are tired of government ramming things down their throats, and they will take it out on their local communities, specifically their public schools. If they can’t get to Joe Biden, they’ll get to the local school board, who they see as just as much of a menace. And more and more, the moderates will be pushed off and replaced by mad moms seeking to protect their children the way angry mommas do. And there is no putting that anger back in the bottle now that people have admitted it to themselves. Public education is over. What we are seeing now is just the beginning.

Todd Minniear Seeks to Protect Liberty Township: When progressives are angry it means that the right thing is happening

I said it when he was overwhelmingly elected in November of 2021, and I’m still saying it, I love Todd Minniear as the new trustee of Liberty Township, Ohio. He ran on a freedom platform, and he’s living up to it by proposing a resolution at the May 3rd, 2022, trustee meeting to make Liberty Township a “constitutional township,” with a written promise. However, for some reason, the sweat bees of Lakota are going crazy over the idea, which is very interesting.   When I first heard about the resolution, I thought it was a great idea but wondered why it was needed. After all, isn’t all townships supposed to be “constitutional townships?” Well, yeah, of course. So why was something like this proposal needed at all? In 2020, when the government made lots of mistakes over Covid, it was up to the local governments to step in and challenge the governor’s actions. In this case, the governor took on emergency powers and bypassed the legislature to assume powers that Governor DeWine did not have. The lockdowns and mask mandates that destroyed so many businesses were unconstitutional. None of them could be defended in court, and so far, all the cases have been lost and looking back on what went wrong, it’s clear that local trustees should have pushed back against the governor. One person can’t be allowed to ruin the lives of so many people with a bad decision. That’s why we have a republic and not some flea-bitten democracy in America. We have a local government that is accountable to the people instead of some top-down kingship, which is how Mike DeWine behaved. Joe Biden crossed those same lines with vaccine mandates and mask requirements, built entirely off misinformation and science in the pocket of big pharma. 

Yet, the same people who have been giving Darbi Boddy of the Lakota school board a hard time for trying to remove the mask mandates in the school as one of her first official duties newly elected are now going after Todd. Notice how arrogant they are and how condescending in their online postings. These are the same people who think that mask mandates should be forever, that sexual indoctrination of our kids in grade school should be normalized and that Joe Biden should be president. These people have had control of the political process for far too long because they make so much noise, but they are actually a small minority. In a community like Liberty Township, they can find a few thousand people who think the way they do. But Todd Minniear and Darbi Boddy were elected by many more thousands, both gaining the most vote totals in the last election. So plenty of people want to see these kinds of challenges to federal and state power. People did not like the way things happened with Covid and how vulnerable they were to an out-of-control government, and they wanted to see these new politicians representing their interests. Of course, these progressive lunatics don’t want to lose control of the process. They love to harass people into doing what they want to see done with threats and public attacks, which is why it’s so wonderful that we finally have some politicians who are willing to do the hard work. When I heard Todd wanted to make this resolution, I didn’t think it was a big deal at all. But he knew that there would be those same opposing voices who would come armed with their name-calling and arrogant slanders. 

So why is something like this resolution for a “constitutional township” needed. Investors in the community, including homeowners, need to know that the trustees can provide a stable environment from intrusive government. Mike DeWine wasn’t accountable to people in Ohio, but their local representatives were. When a governor like DeWine takes action on his own to cut out our elected representatives in the legislature, we must have some mechanisms to resist the intrusion. For Todd Minniear, he looks to the great book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates for how our constitutional republic is supposed to function. The book is a proper resistance to tyranny and a repudiation of unlimited obedience to civil government. The example given in the book is about a church leader who is taking money from the collection plate and should expect their congregation to question them should they skim from the pot. Human beings can fail, especially in intellect, and the purpose of our government is to keep innocent people free of those mistakes as much as possible. And as a trustee, Todd ran on a platform to keep Liberty Township free of those kinds of failures in government. Such a declaration like what Todd proposed is necessary so that the people of Liberty Township can feel some sense of protection from the government by their local representatives since our state and federal governments have failed us so obviously. 

The sweat bee progressives of Liberty Township are so upset because they have in mind the complete desecration of our republic and a merge into the chaos of a democracy which would then propel us into the Vico Cycle, which has destroyed so many civilizations over the years. The Vico Cycle is a theocracy, aristocracy, democracy, then anarchy. So if they are upset by this “constitutional township” resolution, that means it’s a great thing. When these people hate what you are doing, you know you are on the right side of history and doing what voters elected people like Todd Minniear to do. Traditionally, they have attacked people like Todd and Darbi, who have only been on the job for a few months. In Lakota, they already have a petition to get rid of her because she pushed for removing the mask mandates. And you see by their comments about this “constitutional township” resolution that they find it a threat to go back against centralized control. Because as liberals, that’s what they want, and for far too many years, politicians have given them the benefit of the doubt.   But we’ve seen where that takes us, and Covid showed us too much of what we didn’t want to know. Those same people felt the power of a centralized government that was out of control, and they liked it. They never want it to stop. And now that people are returning to normal and are electing people like Todd Minniear to represent them, instead of the classic politician of least resistance, they are worried about losing their power. 

All the noise aside, our task in Liberty Township is to provide stability for business investment and residential ownership. And to give that stability, we must remove the intrusive elements of government from some faraway land that is not accountable to us, who can then destroy our community with just the swipe of a pen. A mask mandate here, a lockdown there, a created crisis to hide bad inflation numbers, Liberty Township deserves to be free of the kinds of corruption we always see in centralized governments because accountability is often missing. Todd Minniear and the other Liberty Township trustees are accountable to their neighbors, which is how it should be. And the next time some government overreach occurs, we need to know that our trustees will follow the Ohio and federal constitutions. They didn’t in 2020. Nobody knew what to do because we had never seen such a thing before. But now we do know. We know all about Covid and how the government made it and managed it. And we saw what it did to all our lives. So, we deserve to be free of those intrusions in the future. And the more that the political left screams about it, the more of that kind of thing we should do because it just validates why it was so important in the first place.

Mike DeWine Ruined Kings Island’s 2020 Season: The danger of an out-of-control government ran by losers like the current Ohio governor

As if anybody needed a reminder about just how terrible Mike DeWine has been as governor. Apparently, there are people out there with the memory of a goldfish, so they need the reminder. Just remember on election day of May 3rd, 2022, that Kings Island, one of the greatest amusement parks in the country, in the world for that matter, is currently under a big lawsuit from season pass holders from the 2020 season who wanted a refund, and are now taking the Cincinnati treasure to court over how the parent company, Cedar Fair Amusements handled the government imposed business shutdowns during the fake Covid pandemic. Now for those who aren’t regular readers, you probably know people who were sick over Covid, who may have died. Remember about Covid, which Governor DeWine was one of the first in the country to be suckered into the Bill Gates power grab for which Covid was created. Covid-19 was made in a lab in Wuhan, China. Dr. Fauci knew about it. He and Bill Gates knew some medicines could have stopped the virus, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. Still, they deliberately suppressed that information from the public with donations made by Bill Gates to manipulate the media coverage and steer the public toward government-mandated vaccines, a multi-decade project that Bill Gates personally has funded so to usher the world toward a one-world government run by the United Nations steered by the Desecrators of Davos party. The same minds have now brought us the crises in Ukraine. And regarding Covid, the government reaction to the virus caused trillions of dollars of damage, ruined many lives, destroyed jobs, and broke the laws of our constitutions in gross ways that many thought was impossible before 2020. Kings Island in northern Cincinnati is an example of how government can ruin lives when it is unchecked and has too much power, for which Governor DeWine is guilty. 

I was on several conference calls with Ceder Fair Amusements and Governor DeWine during the spring of 2020 when the entertainment giant was making its plea to get some visibility to schedule when they could reopen operations. At that time, it was May. Being a seasonal company operating two very large amusement parks in Ohio, which Mike DeWine had prevented from opening by abusing his emergency powers as governor, Cedar Fair Amusements needed answers from the government-created travesty. They had no idea when they could open Kings Island or Cedar Point, and being a seasonal company, they were already hurt in acquiring employees for the season. On that conference call, Mike DeWine was strutting his authority under emergency powers, and it was apparent that he never planned to give up those powers. Now two years later, we still have the pandemic going. The Democrats want desperately to use Covid emergencies to shield them from election results they don’t like. That was certainly the case in 2020 when they wanted Donald Trump out of office. And it’s the case now in 2022, with midterms shaping up to be really devastating for Democrats and the terrible job they have done at the national level possessing all three houses of government, Blue state governors are still looking for Covid to shield them from poor performances. And out of all the governors in the country, Mike DeWine has governed as a blue state governor, certainly not a Republican. And on that phone call, he could not tell Cedar Fair Amusements when they could open or the plan for them ever to do so. DeWine was utterly unsympathetic to the business community’s needs and showed everyone just how dangerous government could be when it was out of control. 

That year Kings Island finally was able to open with horrendous restrictions to the public by July, after half the season was over. That year also, Kings Island had to shut down their Halloween Haunt weekend schedule and their Winterfest activities. So Kings Island was open from July 4th essentially to Labor Day. And before DeWine would let them do that, they had to agree to all kinds of unscientific social distancing rules and mask mandates after having to scramble to find enough employees even to open the park, let alone to give the customers the amusement park experience that they were craving. Kings Island was trying to open one of their big multi-million dollar Giga coasters, and the steam of the whole event was completely destroyed by what DeWine himself had done. Under emergency powers, he cut out the legislature. He took complete command of Ohio’s economy, which he didn’t have the right to do. He took hundreds of millions of dollars from Kings Island in opportunity cost. For Cedar Fair Amusements, it was a devastating summer, just as it was for many hundreds of thousands of other companies, large and small, who struggled to survive the ominous behavior of government exerting powers it didn’t have for the destruction of the people they were supposed to serve. If Covid was a virus that was built by our own Defense Department, funded by Dr. Fauci, and released by China as a bioweapon, and it robbed us of our taste buds, our health, and happiness, the government reaction to it with all the rules and regulations was far more dangerous. People might say that Cedar Fair Amusements is a wealthy company with all the money to absorb the costs. Those would be people who have no idea how much money it takes to run an amusement park. 

I thought what Kings Island did that year was good; they essentially gave all season pass holders for the 2020 season a free renewal of the 2021 pass. Even that following year, Covid was still a problem, and DeWine had just reopened the state against his will. The Senate passed a bill to take those emergency powers away from DeWine, and it finally went into effect in June of 2021, and then and only then did DeWine step away from the lockdowns. The government had spent over a year terrifying people over Covid, which certainly hurt Kings Island’s business model. It will likely take them a decade to recover what was lost in just that one year. The current lawsuit is over how Cedar Fair Amusements managed Covid, which was entirely out of their control. Some people wanted a refund of their 2020 passes because they couldn’t use them. My wife and I went one time to ride the new Orian ride but didn’t go the rest of the year because the mask mandate was impossible to deal with in the hot summer sun, and it wasn’t worth it to us. We thought it was nice that Kings Island honored our passes for the following year. In 2021 we went often but noticed that many of the normal crowd had not returned. Some people were still worried about Covid, and they might never feel comfortable going out in public again. Those are the people suing Kings Island because they wanted a complete refund of their passes for 2020. The government had so terrified those people that they were permanently damaged. So now, with the summer of 2022 coming, Mike DeWine is running for a second term. And Kings Island is in court trying to defend itself from actions that Governor DeWine caused by his horrible mismanagement of Covid in the summer of 2020. Anybody who votes for him after that terrible performance is an idiot and an enabler of abuse.

College Was Always a Dumb Idea: The creation of an ‘expert’ class in America has nearly destroyed our country

I have an article that has been one of my most popular over the last 12 years titled, The Most Successful People Who Didn’t Go to College, and it’s a long list. Looking at that list, it is quite evident that college doesn’t make people successful. Honestly, it likely hinders success; it holds people back. It doesn’t advance them the way it was intended in the socialist novel for which college educations are based in America, Edward Bellamy’s Looking Backward, written in 1888.   Knowing what we do now, with over a hundred years of the scam fully deployed, we can see what that mode of attack was and how effective it was for the wrong things, the creation of a class system in America, of a corporate expert class that was more of a European concept than an American one. Clearly, now, America’s workforce and the people of the culture were far better off without college. The greatest economy in the world was created with the most diverse people populating it. But the scam came in much the way that the Federal government tried to backdoor Covid vaccine mandates. They made a tiered system for which they managed to get corporations to play along. Go to college so you can get a good job with some big corporation. Go to their liberal-controlled schools. Pay them extraordinarily high fees. Replace the parent by sending the kid away from the family and let the liberal institution become the next influence on the young mind. Do all these things so that corporations could get a nice compliant socialist, a top-down “expert.” And the same companies who are now woke, which is about everyone, were the first to sign up and say that they wouldn’t hire the right people for the right job; instead, they’d only hire the person with the degree even if a better person was available who didn’t go through the liberal meat grinder. 

As a result of this government/corporate alliance, we have ended up with an army of expert bureaucrats like Dr. Fauci due to this misguided approach to education. You can go to just about any major company, and populating their white-collar culture is an endless parade of Dr. Fauci types. These mindless bureaucrats bring socialism to their culture and hold the company back. They certainly don’t help it because they have learned all the wrong things. I have argued for years that the college experience was not worth it, that America would have been far better off not participating in that European mindset. College was sold to America as a globalist idea. We didn’t need it. In America, hard work and intelligence were the criteria that capitalism rewarded. If people wanted to be successful, then they could get there through hard work and perseverance.   College told students that a degree would make them successful, and a countless stream of do-gooder parents got suckered into the scam. After all, who wants their children to have a bad life? The college concept told them that their child would have an open door to a good, high-paying job by paying for college. And corporations are obliged only to hire college graduates. It was, in essence, an early version of a Covid Passport concept. Because they were so successful with the college concept, the Desecrators of Davos thought they could get away with the massive Covid scam that killed millions of people and destroyed the lives of many millions more.   The people who Covid easily suckered turned out to be all the college graduates who have their professional work environments decorated with symbols of their alma mater. They were the ones wearing their masks in their cars with the windows rolled up during Covid. They were the ones so easily suckered by the expert class, and in the aftermath, they were the ones most damaged by what happened. 

I say all this as a person who knows a lot of people with advanced degrees. The process does not destroy everyone. I know several people who have Master’s degrees and doctorates, even multiple doctorates.   But I don’t see that it has really helped them become smarter. A real education never stops; it involves knowing many things very well. And it can’t be purchased. Most people in any field of endeavor, including the medical occupations, would do better in apprentice programs than in what they learned in medical school. For all the lawyers out there who put so much effort into law school, we saw recently how great legal minds like Rudy Guiliani were treated, even with all the academic and professional bells and whistles. If he didn’t play ball with some institutional desire, his BAR Association membership could be removed instantly. That has made a compliant class of adults afraid to rock the boat against the established order, which isn’t an American idea. Most corporations are filled with people who were taught in college to get along to keep their jobs, so they check their opinions at the door and never speak up. We also saw during Covid where doctors had the threat of their licenses removed from them if they didn’t get on the Dr. Fauci bandwagon of denying hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Covid instead of pushing the pharmaceutical approach with vaccines. Kids learned in college that the usually liberal professor sets the ground rules for passing the class. Colleges taught students what to think, not how to think, and that basic premise is the foundation for everything that went wrong during Covid. College graduates, especially at the corporate leadership level, were too quick to abandon critical thinking and instead did exactly what the government told them to do. And too many people did it without question.

I’ve put out the alarm for many years. I went to college, and I thought it was terribly stupid. It was a worthless experience. I was always learning and thought of education as reading books in a Waffle House at 4 AM in the morning, which is how I spent most of my twenties. I never learned not to think and pursue knowledge, and the only use college did have was getting an opportunity to interview for a big job. My wife went to college as well, and it was also useless for her. We were never compliant people, so college ran against everything we stood for. Those most successful in college have turned out to be those least able to innovate in the world or think for themselves when needed. They demonstrate institutional compliance but not critical thinking. And the walls all came crashing down regarding the concept, with Covid showing where all the cracks really are in our society. The idea of an “educated class” in America has no real place in our free and open society. It has been just another socialist experiment gone wrong. It created a culture of worthless expert class losers who have ruined everything they have touched and driven America into the arms of globalism, which has been detrimental. And the price is obvious now. It’s hard for people to admit how suckered they were for jumping through all the hoops to accommodate the college degree scam, but it’s time to have an advanced discussion about the worthlessness of the college experience. It has not been suitable for American life. It’s the wrong idea for developing a workforce and has been a dismal failure. Institutional mechanisms can’t purchase education. It must be lived, and there is no substitute for experience. And it’s time to reevaluate the whole process for the sake of our future needs in an America First world.

The Milgram Experiment: Covid was worse, but this time, on a global scale–what did we learn?

We know one thing for sure about the massive government takeover experiment of Covid-19, they attempted to throw the entire world under a rule by authority, and it failed along the same lines as the Milgram Obedience Experiment indicated in the 1960s. The reports have been out there for a long time; the governments of the world and all the power players who want to use governments for their own aims of global domination know what Stanley Milgram, the psychologist, intended to demonstrate, that a dangerous percentage of any society is willing to obey orders even if those orders go against their own self-interest. That was what the dumb lockdowns were all about and the social distancing; it was the Milgram Experiment on a massive global scale. When Stanley Milgram wanted to know to what degree and percentage a sampling of men he had brought in to conduct his experiment would perform under pressure, he was unveiling a riddle that authority types would salivate to and abuse for their own evil intentions in the years to come. Corporations and governments would often use the Stanley Milgram Experiment in the future but never had anybody witnessed the entire world attempting to perform the experiment on such a mass scale. The guilty parties would be the usual suspects, the Desecrators of Davos, so to unleash Klaus Schwab’s The Great Reset. But why they thought it would work was based on those initial test results that nobody in academia would ever get away with today. Although, as I say it, the entire world, based on the activism of Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci almost exclusively, performed the same test hoping for a different result. So for those who say that the Milgram Experiment could never be done in modern times, we just lived through it with Covid. 

Milgram hired an actor to pretend to receive an electric shock from several participants who would respond to instructions from an authority figure, the person giving the test. If the actor got a question wrong, the test administrator would instruct the participant to administer various degrees of electric shock to the actor. Of course, the participants had no idea that the shocked recipient was an actor. They believed that they were genuinely administering electric shock and that the screams they heard from the actor were real. So when told to administer a shock, the participant would turn a dial-up to conduct the pain. The shocks would start at 15 volts, then increase to 150, 330, then ultimately go all the way up to 450. The astonishing aspect of the experiment was that out of all the participants, 65% of them administered the lethal amount of 450-volts even as they could hear the pain of the actor screaming from concealment. In some of the cases, the actor went so far as to pretend to have died, but the participants did as they were told by the administrator anyway. The experiment proved something terrible about people. Even though they knew better, if told to do something, most people would do it because their need to comply with orders was more substantial than their free will to think for themselves. 

Well, those in the world who love to have power over other people salivated over this news. And since the experiment, they have been taking advantage of that 65% of the population ever since. Now there has been some debate about the validity of the study. For instance, all the original participants were men because it was the 60s, and that’s how it was then. So it could be argued that women would have had more empathy toward their screaming victim and perhaps would have been less inclined than 65% to administer the shock. Or perhaps women were more willing to follow orders, and the percentage might have been higher. Many say we will never know, but as the results of Covid show, we do have a better understanding. Out of all the earth’s population, the final numbers look to be in the 40% range of all people who will follow orders in society even to their own detriment. We can base that on the reaction of people who adopted masks when the CDC told them to wear them. We can see who took the vaccine shot in the opening days of administering them. We can see who complied with the stay-at-home orders, chose to work from home during the pandemic, and toughed it out, and ignored social distancing and other mandates. The gamble that Gates and Fauci and their many conspirators within the world’s governments made was that the percentage would be higher for the compliant, more like the Milgram Experiment from the 1960s rather than what they ended up in reality. Many people complied to the government’s face but did what they wanted when they thought nobody was looking. This is important because of what China just did to Shanghai. China had, over the years, killed off many of their non-compliant types, so the experiment there was to see how many people they could lock in their homes to the point of starving to death, only patrolled by a little dog-sized robot in the streets telling them to stay put. In America and places in Europe, the population proved to be way too independent for that kind of control. 

So, what did we learn? Well, I think the news is good. America was founded on far less a percentage of people, somewhere between 15% and 30% of the population. We know that if a movement can gain that much of a following, there will always be between 40% to 60% of any given population that will follow the orders of the minority, even if they disagree. That is how corporations have been ruling over their workforces for years, but they haven’t been able to change the nature of the people themselves. Only their social behavior. That same problem arose during the Covid mass experiment and international execution by denying hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin to Covid patients even though it would have saved lives. By allowing people to take medicine, it would have been the same as letting the participants of the Milgram Experiment know that the person receiving the shock was only an actor. And the scam wouldn’t have worked, which was, in this case, a massive power grab by the Desecrators of Davos for a global Great Reset of all economies into communist-controlled centralized planning, that, of course, they would oversee through the United Nations. Yet not the correct percentage of the global population fell for it, and two years into the scam, there were way too many non-compliant and even angry people. They always knew that a certain percentage of the population would do whatever an authority figure told them to do. After all, we start as babies being told what to do by a parent. Then we are told what to do by our teachers in public schools. By our church. All kinds of authority figures. Most people never grow out of that mode and learn to think for themselves. But what is that percentage? Well, the experiment of Covid, which was a massive Milgram Experiment on a global scale, showed that not enough people would fall for it, and for those who want to rule the world through fear and anxiety, that was terrible news. Which, for the rest of us, is very good.

Thank Goodness for the 1st and 2nd Amendments: As long as the bad guys follow the rules of our Constitution, they don’t have to worry

I am very grateful for two things that have obviously been tested these last couple of years; the 1st Amendment and the 2nd. If not for free speech, the Dr. Fauci/Bill Gates’s plan to take over the world with vaccines and government-mandated medicine would have had nothing to stop it. People were able to get information and make decisions based on free speech. Then, of course, what stopped a complete takeover of our legal systems in the world, especially in the United States, was our 2nd Amendment. We have so many guns in America that people personally own. At no time was a tyrannical government able to go door to door to harass us as they did in New Zealand and Australia during the made-up Covid pandemic. Made-up because the world’s governments conspired for Bill Gates funding to deny hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin to the public to stop Covid. Because of free speech, we learned that the governments and their sponsors were lying to us, and if they could have used force to shut us up, they would have. In America, because of our guns, that was never an option. Instead, it has scared people for a good reason, but our attackers have had to come at us differently by attacking us through finance, medicine, and stolen elections. But they could not attack us door to door, so I am very thankful to be where we are in the spring of 2022. It’s not that the danger of these attacks has been averted. But I feel we have a fighting chance to fix these problems now that the bad guys have been exposed, and if not for the 1st and 2nd Amendments, that never would have happened. 

The number one question I get asked all the time is “what’s under my leather vests,” which I wear everywhere I go. I show my .50 caliber Desert Eagle in the video, which I don’t do often. They call it “concealed” for a reason. But the questions come because many people also want to start carrying, which I highly recommend. We have a safer world when more people carry weapons. I never plan to shoot anybody, but knowing that I can handle whatever anybody throws at me with ill intent gives me the peace of mind to think better about the world I’m living in. The bad guys always want to rule through fear, and a gun-carrying public takes that fear away, which allows us all to have an entirely different conversation. Of course, I wear the big leather vests to allow me to conceal that big gun that holsters comfortably under my arm. The weapon is too big to fit in a waistband or other hidden part of the body. So I have adjusted my attire to accommodate the large-caliber semi-automatic gun. One of the rules of carrying a personal gun is that you should carry the biggest one you can handle. I have found that 9mm and other regular caliber guns are just too small for my liking.   Bad guys can purchase armor for their bodies off Amazon and reinforce their windshields these days easily to be bulletproof. It’s a lot easier now than when I was younger to get access to armor. So I carry my guns to be able to deal with anything that might be thrown in my direction. I don’t just carry that Desert Eagle, of course. I am always prepared for a small army to engage with me out in public, and I have good reason to feel that way. But having the guns makes it so that I don’t have to worry about it. The fear comes from not knowing what you would do or could do if such a thing were to come up. With my method, I don’t have to worry about it. 

For years theories were bouncing around from the political left that wanted to believe that a large centralized government, if it was strong, could keep people safe, so there would be no need for guns. Well, that argument is long gone now, which I think is much better off than we were a few years ago. Back then, it was theory. Now we’ve seen them make their move with all the force we feared. We’ve seen the administrative state spiral out of control, as they did over Covid. So never again do we have to debate about the right to carry a gun in public or to have them in our homes. The reaction that the states have had overall this trauma has been healthy. Instead of going to more restrictive gun laws, they have loosened, and this has been with the NRA pretty much on their heels due to Soros-backed prosecutors trying to destroy them.   I have had a concealed carry permit for years, but now half of the states in America have “constitutional carry,” which is even better. It recognizes that people don’t even need a permit to carry their guns on their bodies or in their cars, and this has been a direct response to the encroachments of government during Covid. We will never be able to trust a centrally planned government. The public reaction has been to de-centralize that government and give it far less power to rule over our lives. The world’s governments showed their cards, and nobody wants to be in the situation that we just saw the Ukrainians go through. Those poor people have been stuck between one bad government and an attacking one. Without guns, they were helpless to stop the mess. At least we have been able to stop the mess with personal gun ownership in America. 

I will always live in a society that can carry a gun. I’ve always felt that way, and now I feel quite vindicated. Even in the scariest parts of the Covid lockdowns, when the streets were almost completely vacant to traffic due to the ridiculous Mike DeWine stay-at-home orders, I felt in control of my own life because of my concealed carry options. I was ready for anything, so I could afford to think about whatever else I wanted, which allowed me to see things for what was going on and to use the 1st Amendment to its full effect, which defeated the evil intentions cast upon us. As long as the bad guys follow the rules of our society, which are established clearly in our state and federal constitutions, there won’t be a need for any fighting. And there is no reason to have any gunfights. But if they don’t follow our nation’s laws, they have lots of reasons to worry, and that’s how it needs to be. I am proud of that ability to carry because we have been tested, and it worked to keep us safe. Carrying guns was the thin blue line that kept our society lawful as attackers had shown their cards to molest it. We’ve talked about it all my life, about the possibility of giving up guns and moving as a culture to a more trusting population of centralized government. Well, that’s over now. I will never live in a gunless society. I will never facilitate talk of gun control. And I am proud that so many states have responded to these last few years with constitutional carry expansion instead of more restrictive laws. Ohio even has “Stand Your Ground” now, which just a few years ago would have been unfathomable. The Zimmer case in Florida was meant to erode that trend, but under Covid, those arguments have been completely thrown out the window. And we are a much better society because of it. Because of personal carry with guns, we are a much more lawful society. It is the primary condition for preserving our constitutional republic and to keep it standing.

Middletown BMV Closes Due to Government Stupidity: The bad service they give you with smiles on their vengeful, lazy faces

It’s bad enough that Biden managed to twist a few Republican arms to get his radical lunatic Supreme Court Justice approved. The 5th Circuit Appeals Court kept Biden’s ridiculous executive order on Covid vaccines alive. Even though an illegal president obviously created both those things, now that we see the evidence of election fraud in 2020, Biden was not elected by voters but was inserted by an investment class with goals from outside our country. So Constitutionally, Biden isn’t qualified to make any decisions. The war with Ukraine and Russia is Biden’s fault. The inflation rate is Biden’s fault. The high gas prices are Biden’s fault. But we can typically ignore some of those things to some extent. The worst thing that is the fault of Joe Biden and the progressive losers of doom in his administration is essential government services like interactions with the IRS and our local BMV (Bureau of Motor Vehicles.)  When Democrats run the government, the benefit you get is much more like when traveling Europe, where service is terrible. There is no motivation to serve. And everything is lackadaisical. Since the massive mismanagement by the Biden administration on Covid, the employment force of America has deteriorated tremendously. In their quest for student debt forgiveness and a socialized universal wage and minimum wage increases that are preposterously too high, the Biden administration has polluted the workforce to the point where few people want to work. We can see this in local instances, such as what has happened near me, where a local BMV is closing in Middletown, Ohio, due to staffing shortages. Their employee attendance is so bad that they just closed that agency as a reaction. 

This Covid impact on the employee workforce is entirely the fault of the Biden administration. The Trump administration wanted to have everything in our economy back open after the initial 15 days to slow the spread. Remember that? Trump figured out that Democrats wanted Covid to harm the economy and get him out of office, so he pushed to open our economy by Easter of 2020. Of course, the Democrats fed by Bill Gates money had captured the airwaves and convinced everyone that people would die if we reopened our economy. Well, people did die, but not because of Covid; it was because Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci deliberately kept medicine to treat Covid-19 from the public, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, which allowed the virus to spread to virtually everyone, and kept our nation locked down for an additional year and a half. In that period, a sector of our economy was permanently destroyed, never to recover. Because of the government policies of calling off work for every little sniffle, and the stay at home quarantining, the work from home concept, the push for a “new normal,” what we have now in 2022 is a workforce that is poorly engaged, slow to meet market demands, and much worse than even the most complacent unionized worker who just meanders through their day only to collect a paycheck, but cares nothing for the work they do, or why they must do it. What we saw with Covid-19 was government-sponsored terrorism that was intent on destroying our economy in America for all sorts of nefarious reasons. 

I have a few cases I’m working on that deal with large sums of money tied up by the IRS that are over a year late because the ridiculous tax-collecting agency indicates they are still short-staffed due to Covid restrictions. They have never been able to get a full IRS staff back to work, so their tasks are as slow as frozen maple syrup, and they expect us all to be okay with their cumbersome response. They think it’s acceptable to hold on to our money interest-free for ridiculous amounts of time and to like it as if they are doing us some kind of favor. Dealing with them is like dealing with some snooty waiter at an outdoor street café in Paris, slow, playing on their phone during the entire service, and not caring how you feel about your experience because they don’t get a tip in Europe, so they don’t care about the service experience. Government is the same way, they are just there for a paycheck, and they don’t care how your service experience goes. And when pressed, they all point to the White House, who has general jurisdiction on these kinds of matters, as the pacesetter.   Dealing with the government on any matter is embarrassingly painful; the incompetence is unbelievable, and that was before Covid. Now, Covid is the excuse of their industry. We were all supposed to accept this “new normal” life that the Klaus Schwab Desecrators of Davos losers created for the illegal Biden administration and have brought to America. 

It really hits home when you need to go to an agency office like the BMV in Middletown to get new plates for your RV or to conduct some title work, and the place isn’t open. It’s closed because of government mismanagement in handling the fake pandemic of Covid, created entirely by government stupidity, only to produce more government stupidity which you then have no choice but to interact with. Now all that work that Middletown used to handle, which is closest to my house, must now go to a neighboring city that has become more crowded with crybaby employees sitting around lazily telling you to take a number. They’ll get to you when they get to you. Nothing says liberal like that phrase, “we’ll get to you when we get to you,” where personal constraints are never managed, embracing laziness. We can talk all day about the foreign invasion into our country by the Desecrators of Davos and their schemes in finance. We can talk about the spying that goes on with China into stealing our intellectual property. We can speak of Russian cyberattacks and other acts of terrorism worldwide. But the worst of all has been the destruction of the American workforce and productivity during and after Covid, such as this closing of the BMV in Middletown, Ohio.

The government isn’t even trying to get better; they just close down a branch of service because they can’t staff it and make doing business with the government even worse and think that’s acceptable. It makes it evident that Covid was never about health and concern for the human race; it was the exploitation of fear to make the lazy feel more equitable in the world. It was just another form of desecration, just as the transgender issue has been introduced to us by the same lunatics, the concept that we no longer have men and women. Still, we can make up anything we want along the way, depending on how we feel. Well, I feel like not paying taxes anymore. Or I feel like I don’t want this government representing me. Or I feel like the government owes me millions of dollars in lost opportunity cost. If we are going to base everything on liberal feelings, well, that’s a door they can’t afford to open. And as bad as everything truly is, the true measure of that disgusting inefficiency that we see so often in government is when they close a BMV because they just can’t manage the location because their management methods are so terrible. In the end, we are the ones who suffer as they just collect their paychecks, play on their phones, and bring detriment and destruction to the American workforce with vengeful smiles on their lazy faces.

Review of the Book ‘The Real Anthony Fauci’: A crime far worse than Helter Skelter and Charlie Manson’s band of murderers

I’ve had the book, The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health for a while now and read it many times.   It’s one of those books I needed to cool my jets on. I’ve been recommending that people read it, especially on topics concerning Covid and vaccines. But I honestly have been too angry to give it a critical appraisal because I had to sort my thoughts out about it. It’s a magnificent book by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the kid of Bobby Kennedy, whose brother was JFK. This book could have only been written by someone with an extensive world perspective like Kennedy, whose family had been at the top of the political spectrum and could see the world from that vantage point. Because if he hadn’t been, and hadn’t had vast experience over the years with the Children’s Health Defense organization fighting Big Pharma in court, a book like this one could have never been conceived, let alone written. This global story essentially consolidates the yearning for control over the human race spanning more than 7000 years. Bill Gates, Dr. Fauci, and many others in government and the pharmaceutical industry essentially want what every tyrant in the history of the world has fantasized about, and that is control over the entire human population. In the case of Covid, there were vast crimes committed that were meticulously researched and shown page by page for hundreds of pages. Any given page could be a series of congressional hearings, and there is almost a snicker from Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, and the heads of pharma who dare anybody to try. These are madmen who have become so drunk with power that they believe they are operating outside of all laws and that no government could touch them. And that, in essence, is what the book is about, and it’s a must-read for anybody and everybody because after what we saw with Covid-19, it impacts everyone on the face of planet earth. One conclusion we can make upon reading this book is that never again can we allow any government to shut us down, lock us up in our homes, and run all affairs from the perspective of emergency powers. There were treatments for Covid that Gates and Fauci deliberately hid, along with an industry of those in the know, and they purposely killed people due to their obviously malicious actions. And this story is far from done.

Yet, what took me a while to get my mind around after reading the book once, twice, three times, and more was that if you follow my rule for judging people based on what they do, not what they say, there is something terribly sinister about the contents of The Real Anthony Fauci. When I was a kid, my dad had a copy of Helter Skelter that he tried to read. He got about a quarter of the way through it, then put it on the bookshelf, never to touch it again. The book scared him, as it did many Americans at the time because they just couldn’t get their minds wrapped around the kind of evil that committed the murders described by the Manson cult that the book was about. He grew up on a farm with a nice family in Ohio. People just didn’t do and think the kinds of things that allowed people to commit crimes like that. Well, as a young guy to overcome the classic need of conquering fear, if my dad was afraid of that book, I surely could overcome that fear and take my own steps into manhood. So I read it as a very young person, and I have studied people’s reactions to it. I didn’t find it all that scary as I grew up with a vastly different experience. For many years I openly sought out relationships with the worst kind of people to understand them. And I can say I’ve known people far worse than Charles Manson. They were more intelligent than Charlie and carried out their murders in a much less obvious way. Manson was evil, but he wasn’t a very smart kind of evil. The smart ones killed people without anybody knowing. They didn’t cut out their babies and paint the walls with their blood. They were never so obvious, which made them more dangerous. And that’s the perspective I had to reckon with to unravel the contents of Bobby Kennedy’s book. The mass murder by Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci is much more malicious and cruel than those committed by Charles Manson and his small army of murderers. And if you judge Gates, Fauci in this story is just a bag man, but if you judge what they did, not what they said, you can only make one conclusion because it all adds up to one unsaid strategy for the whole Covid mess. 

Bill Gates, over several decades, as meticulously established in the book, has a maniacal obsession with vaccines. He has imposed himself and his vaccines on governments all over the world, tampering with their populations for mysteriously malicious reasons. Of course, he presents himself and his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as wanting to help people fight off diseases. But what he doesn’t say and never does is that his vaccines are often more dangerous than the diseases they were meant to fight, and that was certainly the case with the Covid vaccines, which we now know from Moderna and Pfizer were experimental at best and should have never been given to anybody without more trials. To have Gates orchestrate all the world’s governments and essentially run all the mainstream media with his money and donations was a vast evil far worse than anything Charlie Manson ever did. And what’s worse is that Bill Gates knew he was doing it. He manipulated people at all corners of the world to essentially do one thing, put vaccines into every human being in the world, and force through terrorism to drive fear all the governments of the world to make it mandatory. From my own perspective, reading all this line by line for an endless stream of pages for many months, you have to ask why. What does it all add up to? Well, there is only one perspective that one could arrive at. Gates, the geek who started Microsoft as a company, viewed the entire human race as a kind of software program. He has been looking to unite all the governments under his control and make people beholden to those governments for their very lives. Bill Gates was looking to take over the world through his vaccines and, in that way, centralize the entire human race, so they had one thing in common, their basic survival.  

If you take a step back and read broadly, beyond this topic, but into the strategic aims of the Great Reset, by reading from Klaus Schwab himself from his books, the goal of centralized banking is much the same. The desire for a cashless society. The Larry Fink ESG scores. The China model, it all flows together in a very maniacal way. If Bill Gates could strip away the immune system of every human being so that they had to go to government to get a vaccine to stay alive, well, then suddenly, those ESG scores would have meaning. Because if you didn’t have a good ESG score, you might not be able to buy the vaccine that would keep you alive. But to do any of this, a centralized global government that doesn’t exist presently would have to be in place.

The story of The Real Anthony Fauci tells the story of the vaccine part. But it leaves the reader scratching their head at the evil because there is no real motive unless the broader considerations are brought into place. And these criminals are counting on nobody putting all the puzzle pieces together. Yet, that is the only way the puzzle does go together. It shows us the crime of the century, of mass murder without any remorse, all for the global aim of gaining control of the entire population of mankind and ruling them with literal fear of death. In the mind of a crazy person, it is the way to ensure that peace becomes the centerpiece of civilization. It might sound like the rationalization of a Charlie Manson, but it’s far worse than that. This madman is loose and using his vast wealth to buy up all our governments and our health care system for the aim of ultimate control. And it is the most evil thing on planet earth and the long history of humans since they first learned to walk.   And the evil is so bad that most people don’t have the heart to see it, which the criminals count on. It’s how they plan to get away with it—to be so evil that people cannot accept it and will just put the book back on the shelf and avoid thinking about it because the reality is simply too terrifying.

Jim Renacci is Winning Big over Governor DeWine, 46% to 30%: Greatness in Ohio is poised to make a comeback

It’s pretty late in the game for such a poll to come out in The Ohio Star that showed Jim Renacci is up 49% to DeWine’s 30. That is good news. The other candidates’ Joe Blystone, came in at 20%, with Ron Hood at 4%, with the May primary coming up fast. There is a chance that the date for the primary might move to August due to district mapping Supreme Court decisions, but for a snapshot of where things are in the spring of 2022, things are looking very good for Jim Renacci. And Renacci’s own people confirm that this sampling of 1,342 likely primary voters is consistent with their internal polling. I would caution that such sampling could still run hot or cold depending on what part of the State the polling is done. For instance, in Cuyahoga County, Renacci is from that region and will naturally perform well, whereas DeWine is better known in the south of the State by default. But that is a pretty good lead and is consistent with the temperature of Ohio after a disastrous four years of Mike DeWine. Even at his recent State of the State speech, where all the focus was on him, with no Renacci to compete for attention, DeWine could not escape the cascade of blunders born out of his reaction to Covid-19. DeWine will always be known as the first governor in all the country that started the lockdowns, and for that, we can never forgive him. 

But I would caution everyone not to get too cocky just yet. While this poll shows a big lead, you can bet everything that DeWine’s 30% will show up to vote for him on a primary day. They might hold their nose to doing it, but they will because they are probably tied to him somehow. So his 30% is real, and it is active. Really at no point in this whole process has Mike DeWine cracked the 40% threshold, so his support has always been a fringe portion of the old establishment type of Republican voter.   It says quite a lot about the strength of the Renacci campaign that he can poll as high as he can against an established Republican, even with competition from two other challengers. But voter turnout will be vital to sustaining this polling lead. There is a reason that establishment candidates tend always to win, and that’s because their base participates in elections on primary day while most everyone else talks about who they’ll vote for but forget about the importance of primaries. That makes it very hard for Central Committees to pick against an incumbent no matter how much they’d like to see different results. This election is different for many reasons, so we are dealing with lots of uncharted new conditions. But once the votes are counted for this primary, the winner will be the candidate with the most active base. 

Yes, it was very embarrassing for Governor DeWine, granted it was on Renacci’s home turf in Cuyahoga County. The Republican Party recently voted to endorse Mike DeWine with a 123-75 margin. It wasn’t even close, and they aren’t delusional. That kind of comprehensive win for an establishment party is great no matter where it comes from. Other parts of the State have supported Mike DeWine, but they risk looking like fools in picking a loser, which is tricky because so many people are just holding their nose for DeWine just to get along in their local parties. But the truth is, Renacci has done an excellent job in creating an option for DeWine, and people have not forgotten what DeWine did to them with Covid-19. Mike DeWine is Ohio’s, Dr. Fauci. When everyone thought they would die over Covid, DeWine’s strategy of exploiting authoritarian rule over all of Ohio, shutting down businesses, church services, and putting an abortion activist in charge of health, DeWine was polling well among Democrats. But not with Republicans. And even though DeWine had tried to be more Republican since the summer of 2021, when the lockdowns and mask mandates finally were removed, the public has not forgiven him. We know a lot more about Covid-19 than we did in 2020, and it’s quite clear that Governor DeWine overreacted and led the nation into a destructive course of action that was reprehensible. He cost the lives of many Ohioans, destroyed businesses, violated the Constitution multiple times with grave consequences, and it will take decades for many of those memories to alleviate. A few months isn’t enough to help DeWine in an election where there is stiff competition like there is in this 2022 primary.

The good news isn’t just one stand-off poll; there is evidence everywhere that Jim Renacci is poised to beat Mike DeWine in the 2022 primary comfortably. Renacci is the Trump candidate in the race, so given where Ohio is in relation to the President, that enthusiasm shows up in support of the Ohio governor race. Renacci has promised to be the Ron DeSantis of Ohio, and the world is watching great government coming out of Florida as an example for everyone to see. It’s a real opportunity for Ohio to really do some great things if they had a governor like Renacci, who I think could be better than Ron DeSantis. It was President Trump who opened up this new kind of political playbook. DeSantis didn’t start on such sure footing. By adopting the Trump management style, he has been able to really put Florida on the map of leadership. His success has given him the political clout to take on the wokeness of Disney when any other governor would be crawling through broken glass to kiss up to the biggest employers of Florida with appeasement. What’s good for Disney obviously isn’t good for the rest of the State, and DeSantis has done well to stick up to the big bully for the benefit of Florida, and people see that.

Renacci is the same type of person; he could be a great governor in Ohio. Better than DeSantis. And with a month to go before the primary, obviously, people are feeling it. Just remember, while all this is wonderful to see and hear, it still takes showing up to vote for Renacci on election day. It would be good if Blystone and Hood would rally behind Renacci to ensure a victory against DeWine. They aren’t going to gain any more of the vote at this point, and if they really wanted to help Ohio, they would find a home under the Renacci umbrella. There’s plenty of room. It would also be an excellent time to get a Trump endorsement, officially. For President Trump, that would be a low-risk endorsement that could really engage voters and ensure that they do show up for the primary. But with just a little bit to go, Jim Renacci is looking good. There is a lot of hope that we may just get to see how great Ohio can be and that we can put these dark days of DeWine behind us. As bad as the last several years have been, the years before us could be many times better. Perhaps, just perhaps, we will see it. We certainly deserve it. Ohio is a great state, and it deserves a great Governor to represent the people who make it so great. DeWine is undoubtedly not that guy. Jim Renacci is, and everything is pointing in the right direction for greatness to make a comeback.
