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.

My Review of ‘2000 Mules’: The proof of election fraud is abundant, nobody wants to be near Joe Biden

You might have noticed that Fox News is not allowing coverage of Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000 Mules on their network, even though compelling evidence was presented in the film that proves beyond reasonable doubt that the 2020 election was stolen. Everything Joe Biden has done and continues to do is illegal. All those who hoped that somehow Trump could be “processed out” of existence with a political stiff arm are learning the hard way. The Trump endorsements are reshaping the Republican Party, and all the insiders know it. They know Joe Biden and the Democrats cheated to gain their current power. After learning what we did in 2000 Mules, it’s evident that many close elections over the last decade or so were probably won in precisely the same way, by paying “mules” $10 per vote to stuff ballots created by nonprofits fed by Facebook money. By the time 2020 came around, the Democrats had their “steal the vote” campaign a well-oiled machine. The RINO Republican types played along because they kept the balance of power of politics within a realm they were comfortable with. If Democrats gained power, they were okay with that because it kept the swamp filled, so it was a concession they were willing to make. And in that last election, they wanted Trump gone as bad as the Democrats did, so they joined forces to hold their nose and allow for massive election fraud. Then in the aftermath, they took the position of denying it for all the legal reasons you’d expect and hope that the story would just disappear into history. But after watching the evidence of massive election fraud, with very conservative estimates taking the overvotes to well over 800,000, their hopes are vanishing. They are not going to get away with what happened in 2020. Many people in the media and in the political circles know that they have been caught in treasonous activity, and now that there is proof, concerns are brewing.

Where I filmed my video review shown above, it was less than a mile from where Joe Biden had just visited a metal plant specializing in 3D printing. I was right in the middle of that presidential visit that day, and it was the most boring that I have ever seen. And I don’t say that because I hate President Biden. I say it from experience setting up other presidential visits, such as Trump many times to Butler and Warren County. I know what they look like, I have seen the way politicians show up at the airport to greet the President, and this Biden visit had no gas in the tank. Nobody cared; drivers on the highways were barely an inconvenience. The motorcade brought Biden in, and they took him out, and hardly anybody knew he had ever been there. Really, we didn’t need the evidence of election fraud that was shown in 2000 Mules because the lack of excitement for Joe Biden says everything that anybody needs to know. Not even the liberal Andy Breshear came to see Biden in Northern Kentucky, where the President landed. They all know that Biden was manufactured; he was not picked by a Democratic means of actual vote counts. The only reason Joe Biden was President was that Facebook bought him along with other billionaires. And they also knew that the rule changes presented by Covid allowed for the theft to happen, and they really hoped that this story would die. But instead, it’s picking up steam as we learn more about what really happened. But regarding Joe Biden, there is no logical proof that he gained more votes in the history of any president because everywhere he goes, even in Philadelphia, nobody is excited to see him. 

The New York Times produced a documentary last year called A Day of Rage, which featured the same cell phone pings that Dinesh D’Souza used to show where people were and what they were doing, which was already accepted by the political left as viable evidence. In that documentary, the evidence was enough to apply guilt to the protestors indicating that they had planned what the establishment called an “insurrection.” Suddenly they don’t want to accept that kind of cell phone tracking evidence when it comes to the election fraud of 2020 because it is so apparent. My opinion on what happened on January 6th, 2021, was that I wanted more evidence and was willing to study it as it came in. Smart people knew something wasn’t right about the election, but at the time, we didn’t yet have the facts. Well, now, in 2022, we know the facts, and a group called True the Vote was featured in 2000 Mules to reveal just how the election fraud occurred, using the same methods The New York Times used in their Day of Rage. Rather than storm the capital like many did, I instead took my RV and my wife out into the desert of New Mexico and Utah and wrote a book.

I certainly understood why the people who stormed the capital were upset; we all were. They were angry that their vote had been stolen, and they didn’t want to wait for the proof. They had a gut instinct that the government was lying to them, and they wanted someone’s head on a plate. What happened on January 6th of that year is what happens when a government steals elections, and it is mild compared to what will happen in the future if it continues to occur.   The controls that the swamp thought they had over people were shattered that day, and it scared them, which it should. But back then, there was still a lot we didn’t know. But now we do. The election was stolen. The people who stormed the capitol on January 6th did so under constitutional parameters. Their prosecution has been against the law because the government breached the law with election fraud. It’s quite a mess, and now there is proof of it all which in many ways nobody wants to talk about, is earth-shattering.  

But the ultimate proof is in the lack of support for Joe Biden. When my wife and I went out west that year to get perspective out in the vast open spaces and away from politics for a few months, I was the first to see it. The election had just happened, and you could see that Trump had significant support. But there was nothing to suggest that Biden had any support, even while traveling through the blue state of Illinois. It was an odd thing to witness, supposedly the most popular President in history, yet nobody liked him and showed support for him publicly. Then there was that recent trip to Butler County, Ohio, to visit the 3D printing factory. Nobody, no politicians, and certainly no enthusiasm, not even from law enforcement who were responsible for safe passage along the route.   That is evidence that can’t be hidden or denied. People just don’t like Joe Biden, and they have an instinct that the government caused all this mess by taking away their actual vote. So even without the Dinesh D’Souza movie, people already get it. They just don’t know what to do about it. But now, there is more than an assumption. With the evidence presented by True the Vote and the great work done by Catherine Engelbrecht in putting it together, we have everything we need to begin congressional hearings on the matter, at the very least. We have whistleblowers, video, and cell phone data which are just as good as DNA evidence.   We have plenty to untangle the mess of election fraud in the 2020 election. But the most apparent evidence is how the political left has reacted to the presentation of that evidence, especially on Fox News. They don’t want to see it, they just want the story to die, and as a major news organization, that tells you all you need to know about their role in that election fraud, as most of the corporate media were from the beginning.

Never Turn the Other Cheek to Evil: The sexual groomers and CRT teachers at Lakota don’t have the gas in the tank the media wants you to believe they have

There were a lot of important lessons that people should have learned from the Lakota school board meeting on May 9th, 2022, which I’ve talked about elsewhere. It was intended by the media, the radical progressives, and the institutionalized school board to be an assassination of Darbi Boddy for daring to come back to the meeting and not allowing herself to be forced to resign, which all those elements wanted more than life itself. The calls for her to be destroyed and publicly sacrificed were sickening. I’ve heard all the stories about her, that she doesn’t get along with the other members on the board, that she doesn’t follow the rules. That she doesn’t care about the image of Lakota. I will say that Darbi Boddy represents me best of all the school board members who have served at Lakota over the years. I may have liked some of the other board members, but they often don’t come close to representing my position. Yet Darbi does, and I think she has been as professional as she can be, considering that the foundation of all public schools is radical progressivism. School boards often get caught trying to mask the effects of progressivism in the schools, so the taxpayers don’t feel so bad about the many thousands of dollars each they are forced to contribute against their will only to churn out more kids with purple hair who live their lives like a perpetual Pride Parade participant. School boards spend too much of their time trying to make a bad system work instead of dealing with some of the vast evils that are being manufactured in these institutional corruptions proposed by John Dewey from the beginning. My position specifically about public education is that it has been a failure from the start. People would be better off without it. It does nothing to prepare kids for the workplace, which is evident in our post-Covid economy. And public schools have been committed to one primary objective over the decades: to prepare the child for a liberalized political outlook on life and remove the role of the parents in the child’s lives as much as possible. School boards and superintendents have learned to mask those effects to the public while hiding the fact that they played nice with the progressive teacher unions hoping to hold the whole thing together just long enough to pass the next levy to throw at the mob to keep them quiet and coming to work every day. 

Since the last election, I haven’t paid too much attention to Lakota schools. I liked that two Republican-endorsed candidates were elected. I like the current school board president, so I figured they’d go do the business of the school and leave us all alone for a while. I generally don’t like thinking about Lakota schools for all the reasons stated. I think it does nothing to help kids, so my hope with a school board is that a really good board might help mitigate the damage to children. But I am certainly not on board with institutionalized learning. The evidence of how bad it has been is all around us in the world. So I contain my rage about it most of the time until those public schools start asking for more money, or they pick on people I see wanting to do a good job the way a good job is defined, with lots of questions and a sincere dedication to solving problems, instead of trying to cover them up. And Darbi Boddy has been a school board member who has been doing an excellent job in my mind. I don’t want the school board to mask the progressive elements from the public so that the public doesn’t see how those losers waste our money, vast amounts, to be specific. And with so many bad people gunning for Darbi Boddy, I was determined to go to this particular school board meeting, even though I knew it would be a huge waste of time. She didn’t deserve all those extremist elements trying to destroy her, and her supporters needed to make their opinions known.

Leading up to the meeting, I received lots of antagonizing text messages, Tweets, and other forms of communication berating me for still supporting Darbi despite the “group consensus” displayed by the school to get rid of her. And with each one I received, I was more resolute to engage these attackers. I have been saying for many years to conservatives, do not run from these people. When they engage with you, stand and fight them. Punch them back into the holes they live in. Do not give them social validation by boosting their confidence by turning the other cheek. Most conservatives do turn the other cheek about most everything in their lives. That’s what God tells them to do in the Bible, so they do it. But they shouldn’t. When a purple-haired sexual groomer who wants to teach that America is bad through CRT and they want exclusivity to your children, you have to fight to protect your children from them.

Failure to do that is contributing to evil. So I wasn’t particularly happy about going to a Lakota school board meeting anyway, but I was expecting a fight. I wanted a fight as I pulled into the parking lot because I personally hate these people, the progressives who are employees and supporters of those employees at Lakota. However, I was surprised by what I found at the school when I arrived. For days ahead of time, I had screenshots of a Facebook page that the sexual groomers at Lakota were planning an anti-Darbi Boddy rally to demand her resignation. By the talk of the community and the hundreds and hundreds of comments that were left there, it looked like 1000 people might show up, so I was expecting a challenging evening. But you know what I saw? Two people standing out front. Now those two people looked like the typical Pride Parade types, the sexual groomers who want to introduce to children alternative sexual lifestyles when they should be learning math, science, and reading. But they had no support when the rubber hit the road, which is the lesson everyone should learn from this experience. 

Most of the people who packed that room at the meeting were anti-Darbi types. But if all the conservatives I know who were concerned about Darbi and this particular meeting specifically had shown up, they would have dwarfed the anti-Darbi people. I reminded people at that meeting during my speech that more than 8000 people had just voted for Darbi just six months ago, and nobody had a right to erase that vote away with these theatrics. But this is what progressives do; we see them doing it right now with the Supreme Court. Of course, the liberal media makes those crowds look big, so it scares away the conservatives from participating in these kinds of events because they don’t want to have to fight. They don’t want to deal with these evil elements of society, these sexual groomers, and anti-American radicals. They stay home. They do vote, but they are quiet about it. They don’t want to deal with the radicals, they don’t want the radicals coming to their house to harass them, and they fear it because the media has perpetuated that myth to feed that fear. But as was evident at that meeting, the progressives and radicals have no gas in the tank. If they could have had thousands of people outside the school board, they would have. Instead, they had just a couple of crazies demanding Darbi’s resignation. And they had a bunch of disrespectful malcontents in the board meeting being very disruptive, hoping to alter the course of the evening with discontent. But to no effect. All it did was prove a point I have been making to conservatives for three decades, stop pandering to these idiots. Throwing money at them to make them be quiet has not been a good strategy; it has only empowered them to believe that they have a majority they clearly don’t have. They are not as powerful as they pretend. And when they confront you, don’t turn the other cheek. When they attack your representatives, don’t abandon them to the mob. Don’t pick Barabbas. Stand up for what’s right and help them live another day. The real fight is how entrenched the public schools’ progressive elements really are; CRT is the most obvious problem. Nobody wants to see it, yet the evidence is clear to see, specifically in the participants of the campaign against Darbi Boddy for trying to expose it and how the institutional assassins lined up to destroy her. That is all the proof anybody needs. Yet, despite all their efforts, to stop them was pretty easy because they don’t have as much support in the world as the television cameras want you to believe they have.

Nina Jankowicz and the Ministry of Truth: Trying to hide the massive evidence of election fraud shown in ‘2000 Mules’

Here’s the problem, especially in the wake of the new Dinesh D’Souza movie, 2000 Mules; our government isn’t just illegitimate; everything it does is illegal. It’s a massive criminal enterprise looking to hide its crimes from the public. And one way they would like to do that is with this new Ministry of Truth head of Disinformation Governance Board for Homeland Security, Nina Jankowicz.  As established in that terrific film carefully researched, given some of the most outlandish behavior alone, there were over 800,000 votes more than who actually voted in the 2020 election created by the billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg and George Soros through nonprofit organizations who then hired mules just like drug traffickers to stuff ballots in the critical battleground states. Those votes were counted for days after the election until they had the manufactured votes needed to show a Biden win. The law-breaking was incredibly ostentatious and foolish. Yet, they gave over half a billion dollars to many mules and other election advocates.

You can buy a lot of people with that much money making this whole event the biggest crime committed by the most people in the history of the world. Even the Roe v. Wade leak from the Supreme Court is an attempt to derail the obvious, the release of the D’Souza movie and its proof of election fraud. The government did not want President Trump in the White House, and they were going to rig the election to make sure it didn’t happen. And now that the proof is out there of just one small attribute of election fraud on a massive scale, the Biden administration is trying to protect itself from removal by starting this attempt to control the free flow of information. But it’s too late. The information was always there; it just took time to piece it together. And the Biden administration, which is entirely illegal and illegitimate, is trying to hide the facts from people on social media by putting this insane kid in charge of “disinformation.” You would think that these communists would have learned from the massive failure of Cuba and the Berlin Wall how they would never be able to stop people from talking and seeing the crimes they do. But they obviously didn’t learn anything from history. 

To make matters even worse, as 2000 Mules shows as a foundation, is that the kind of “mules” that were not as active and not seeking to make as much money as some of the more enterprising, the amount of stolen votes jumps up to the tens of millions, just with some simple math. Knowing there would be a lot of scrutiny over the film’s content, it calculates only the most apparent accounts of voter fraud with dropbox ballot stuffing created exclusively by Covid rules also released by the government so that they could use those rules to create opportunities to cheat. The level of crimes committed here are astronomically arrogant and demand punishment. One of the reasons that Al Capone got away with so much crime from the perspective of the mob in Chicago was that good people just couldn’t believe anybody could be that evil. People find it even harder to believe that anybody could be this evil on such a massive scale. But when you pour half a billion dollars into election fraud, at $10 per vote, you can buy a lot of votes from desperate people who are not America first lovers. For people looking for easy money for their next drug binge, what Facebook was offering was lucrative and abundant. Thousands of people were involved in this election fraud, including many in government who didn’t want to see the crimes because it would require them to have some courage to stand up to it, which they are lacking. Now that the evidence is there, which the movie shows is overtly reliable with demonstrations of prosecution, action has to happen. People have to admit that the Biden administration is entirely illegitimate, and everything that has been done since Trump left office has been invalid. Every new branch of government, executive order, and action taken while in the White House. It was funded by billionaires who wanted to push America into a borderless world, so they paid the worst they could find on the street to steal the election and destroy our country to make way for the Great Reset discussed by Klaus Schwab. These people attacked our country, and now they have been caught in the crime, and it requires action to bring justice to those attackers. 

The geo-tracking by cell phone signals is a real thing that nobody thought would be used in evidence in this case. It was the hole that the attackers forgot to consider or figured that nobody like True to Vote would crack the code of how the election was stolen. Everyone carrying a cell phone gives off a location ping constantly, allowing anybody who wants to buy the information access to everywhere you’ve been. The FBI can use it to plot your whereabouts any time they want. But so can companies who wish to buy the information as True to Vote did to show movement. All those free apps on your cell phone, the games you download, aren’t free. They constantly collect passive information about you, which is for sale to anybody who wants to buy it. That is how True to Vote was able to gain access to the most extreme cases of voter fraud which was shown in the movie 2000 Mules. Technology was used to commit the rigged election. And it was by looking at that technology that it was proven. Not only should the Biden administration be removed from the White House, but everyone who participated in coordinating the entire thing, from the media to the organizers at the nonprofit warehouses, must be punished to the furthest extent of the law. 

That leads us to Nina Jankowicz, the singing lunatic who is now the head of a division of Homeland Security intent to remove “disinformation” from society. The term disinformation is understood as dangerous information to reveal the evidence that the criminals in government have committed and ensure that they never find justice.   It would take a radical extremist to conduct such a job, which is precisely what Nina Jankowicz is and has been for quite a few years now. Only such a person could attempt to do the job with a straight face, but to understand them; you must only observe what they do. People like Jankowicz are among the worst in any society and want open communism to control the population. Her actions during the Covid lockdowns were extreme, which made her the most obvious pick for a group of criminals hoping to hide the election fraud of 2020 with a new branch of government meant to keep the power acquired sustained into the next election cycle. But the fear they have is that people have not forgotten, and they overestimated their ability to discredit the stories that would naturally emerge. They didn’t think anybody would figure it out as True to Vote did or that filmmakers like Dinesh D’Souza would illustrate in movies like 2000 Mules. Homeland Security should have never been created in the first place; if the FBI and CIA had done their jobs correctly, that would have been enough. But the government wanted to expand its power and grip over people, so they used the 9/11 tragedy to grab more power and push for more government. And now we are seeing the ultimate nightmare, something the government assured us would never happen, that they’d use Homeland Security to attempt to control all we see and hear. But that’s what they’ve done, they are abusing the power of government to commit crimes on a massive scale, and they went all-in during 2020 to steal more power. And the proof is evident now, and there isn’t anything the criminals can do about it to keep it from the people who need to know about it.

The Psychology of the Silent Majority: Measuring engagement with President Trump, Joe Biden and Darbi Boddy

Understanding the silent majority is the key to comprehending many elements of modern politics. This came up recently as antagonists of Darbi Boddy at Lakota schools were poking around, observing that my sites don’t typically have a lot of comments. My readers tend to read, observe, and think about what they engage with. They don’t usually feel that they should write down their thoughts for all to see. This is also true of polling; when a pollster calls members of the silent majority, they are much less likely to answer the phone or interact with the established organization because they are much more guarded about their thoughts and actions to the public. This tendency has given the political left a sense of power that they never had. RINOs, too, have misread the tea leaves over the years, believing that their task has been to appease the noisy minority. And there was a considerable amount of panic when within a week of the pro-union elements of radicalism at my local district of Lakota couldn’t use social pressure to force Darbi Boddy off the Lakota school board, the liberal controls over conservatives were losing their grip. When some of those same elements brought their value system to me, hoping to invoke the same concerns, “you don’t have much engagement in the form of comments,” one of them said to me, looking for a way to invalidate the content by the way they measure. That is because the silent majority stays silent on issues, and the political left never had control over them. It was just an illusion created by the small minority who do care about such things. When I say that liberalism is a mental illness, this is what I mean by it. The Conservative silent majority types do not need the validity of their existence acknowledged by others for their happiness and actions in life. Liberals do need the validation of their peers. They are the epitome of classic philosophy; if a tree falls in the forest and nobody witnesses it, did it fall? Well, for the silent majority, of course, it did. To the liberal, they need acknowledgment of its falling to believe that it fell. They need social validation. 

Just the recent Trump rallies in Nebraska, then the one in the pouring rain in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, will show the evidence that provides some sort of measure on this condition. Back to the Darbi Boddy case at Lakota schools in Butler County, the belief by the radical lunatics is that if 100 to 800 of them make noise on a Facebook page and speak at a school board, then that is enough to observe that she should be removed from the school board and replaced with someone they like as liberals better. But the silent majority lives in Butler County, Ohio, in numbers that are around a half a million. Every officeholder in Butler County is a Republican, and the biggest fight in politics isn’t between Democrats and Republicans but between real conservatives and RINOs. So regarding Darbi, the liberals are grossly outnumbered at the ballot box. Still, they believe they are in the majority because they gauge their reality off peer engagement like-minded insanity. On the same day that Trump went to the Greensburg rally in the rain to a massive crowd that waited all day to see him give the same essential speech he provides every week, Joe Biden came to Butler County to visit a metal plant that specializes in 3D printing to try to affiliate himself in a manufacturing sector in a positive way. Well, I was within feet of that obviously inserted President. Nobody cared; everyone went about their business as if he wasn’t even there. The motorcade on the way in and out was uneventful. If it had been Trump, the traffic would have been backed up for miles. For Biden, it was a few missed traffic lights. He came and went as if he were never there. Without cameras and some CEO cheerleading, nobody would have otherwise known Joe Biden was even the President of the United States. Yet hours later, in Pennsylvania, standing in a steady spring rain covered in mud for over six hours, Trump supporters waited for the former President, who has been gone for 15 months from high office, to talk to them about supporting his next round of endorsements. 

The problem used to be getting the silent majority to engage in politics because they never wanted to support people like George Bush, John McCain, or Mitt Romney. I remember the challenge in 2012 when Kid Rock came to West Chester, Ohio, to do a big rally for the Ohio GOP, including John Kasich. I was supposed to go to it and do my usual behind-the-scenes stuff. But I had better things to do than meet all the Republican celebrities that year, which nobody but the extreme insiders was excited about. If you want to go to the zoo to see RINOs, that was the event. But most people like to see other things in the political zoo, so attendance was light. A few years later, when I was involved in helping secure a location for the future President Trump during the primaries of 2016, we booked him in the Savannah Center just a few feet from where Kid Rock had been playing for the 2012 GOP, and it was a madhouse. Trump wasn’t even the nominee for the Republican Party at the time, and it looked like he never would be. But people were parking everywhere. West Chester turned into a madhouse as no traffic management could have managed people’s desire to see Trump. Most of the people who came to see Trump at the Savannah Center never got into the building. That was the silent majority. They don’t feel they need to validate their existence on message boards like Facebook or engage with pollsters. But when you see they all want to be in the same place to do the same thing, that’s when you can begin to see them and understand the political movement that is upon us. 

We’ve learned a lot about the silent majority over the last ten years since that 2012 event. Back then, the GOP managed to fill the field by the clock tower in West Chester, but it certainly wasn’t close to the madhouse of Trump’s visit to the Savannah Center. And the crowds are much larger now, and he’s not even President. The recent rally in Nebraska was supposed to be on a Friday night, but they had terrible weather, so they canceled and rescheduled for Sunday. People waited all weekend for Trump to arrive at the rescheduled time. And they’d do it again. So why is Trump so popular, whereas Joe Biden is not? Why is Darbi Boddy making so many liberals upset by being on the school board, yet their protests are falling on deaf ears?

Darbi knows what many are just now learning about the silent majority. They are where America has always been, yet they weren’t represented in politics or even the entertainment industry. Every so often, there would be a movie like American Sniper that would catch their interest, and you could see them.   But without a person who represented them in public, evident for all to see, nobody knew they existed who measure these things because the measurement was wrong. Engagement was being used to measure sentiment. But the silent majority was silent for a reason; they were not stimulated by the measures of engagement being presented to them, so their passions went unrecorded.   And they didn’t participate in the measure. The insanity of the political left to feel unchecked and validated while the silent majority disengaged and stayed to themselves. They might talk to each other over grilling in the backyard and ooze about the corruption of politics. But they wouldn’t otherwise interact with the established world. They certainly didn’t go to school board meetings to make themselves seen. But when there is an issue they can get their teeth into or a person they feel represents them, they vote and do so enthusiastically. And they don’t need anybody to acknowledge that they did it, which terrifies the mental depravity of the political left because, without validation, they have nothing in the world.

The Strength of a Trump Endorsement: What does it tell us about the world of politics

In many ways, the story of the 22 Trump endorsements that all won in the primary elections across Ohio and Indiana is the biggest story of the week. It’s bigger than the Supreme Court leak over abortion, more significant than the 2000 Mules film, which provides evidence of election fraud in the 2020 election, and bigger than any Ukraine news. More important than the failing Biden administration and its out-of-control inflation numbers. Bigger than the stock market tanking ahead of continued bad economic news by a socialist, globalist organization run by the Desecrators of Davos. The Trump victories, of which J.D. Vance was the biggest, are a superb indicator of where America is and the rules of conduct for the world in the coming months. As much as the plans for a Great Reset have been by Klaus Schwab and the gang in the Davos party, and the many mechanisms of manipulation that they are employing to destroy the world so they can remake it, what was evident on the election day of May 3rd, 2022 was that Americans were following a course of action started well over a decade ago, with the Tea Party movement, and that the trajectory of that course was irreversible. Trump was a product of that movement, and it would certainly live on well beyond him. But in the here and now, despite all the ad dollars, the liberal controls of the media, of all the communist attempts over a century to completely take over the human race, it was failing and failing in a big way. 

I watched the most baffling conversation on Monday evening during a Fox News broadcast between Bret Baier and Brit Hume, where they discussed that they thought the Republican Party was moving on beyond Trump. It had, after all, been a year and a half since Trump had left office, and it was time for him to disappear over the horizon as all former presidents do. It was time essentially to lick his wounds, build a library, and just disappear into the history books. Brit, in fact, said at least three times in this discussion on Fox that he thought the election on May 3rd would show that voters were ready to “move on.” I kept thinking, “what planet are these guys on?” Did they know something I don’t? Are they looking at data I hadn’t seen? Perhaps, after all, it’s their business to know things that nobody else does. So I held my tongue and waited to see the election results, thinking maybe they had some inside baseball information that would lead to several Trump losses. They were ready to pounce as a media organization on so they could claim that all was back to normal. Ad revenue could resume based on a Karl Rove view of the world. Club For Growth would destroy Vance and all the future MAGA candidates, and life would be good at Fox News and the other mainstreamers. 

Of course, what happened was much different and perplexing to the establishment. It led to falsely installed president Joe Biden to say that the MAGA movement was the most dangerous political movement in the history of the United States. Well, if the destruction of America is the goal of the modern Democrat Party, then yes, MAGA could be viewed as dangerous to them. The preservation of America and making it great again would be dangerous if the plans were its destruction. But the strength of the Trump brand after all they had done to it, the conventional Republicans and the Democrats, was beyond comprehension for them.   Even Mitt Romney was starting to see the light of the issue. “If Trump wants to run in 2024, he can.” Do ya’ think, Mitt? Wow, there is some good inside baseball indeed, coming from a sitting senator at the federal level. But it says just how little these “insiders” really know about what’s going on in the outside world. I could tell them all day long, and so could many others. In Ohio, where DeWine held off challengers with only 48% of the vote out of a million Republican primary voters, many who flipped for the election from Democrat to put their support behind the very RINO incumbent governor, the tolerance for convention has well expired. People are voting for MAGA candidates in the Republican Party. They may not always agree on who those MAGA candidates are. But when Trump puts his official endorsement behind one of them, they win their election. That was certainly the case with J.D. Vance.

Before Trump provided his endorsement, J.D. was down in the polls, well behind Josh Mandel. I saw the impact right away. I ended up voting for Josh Mandel anyway, as did many, but J.D. Vance had a comfortable lead from the endorsement to the actual vote count that never went away, completely off the strength of Trump’s endorsement. That really spooked the Beltway insiders in the aftermath of the election. How could Trump have that much power, still? Well, I would say that Trump’s brand is strong by itself. He had built it over a lifetime, and there isn’t anything else like it in politics. From the Trump Tower building in the 80s to all the books, appearances in movies, and his WWE activities, Trump has always oozed Make America Great. But it’s more than that. In the Tea Party days, I remember when Trump struggled to get 100 people to gather in front of a stage, he was speaking at. Trump had to come to the Tea Party movement; they didn’t go to him. Trump had to stay married, to get more conservative.

Trump needed to start attacking Barack Obama, whom everyone at that time who hated him knew was a political plant from the Weather Underground. Obama began his political life in the living room of Bill Ayers. When Trump got blasted by Obama by accepting an invite to the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011, it changed life forever. Trump went and was grilled by Obama ferociously. Trump then endeavored to get revenge by running for president to knock down Obama and all his plans, which are still unfolding today. Obama is the mouth behind Joe Biden, and that battle is still very much in the news daily. The Tea Party admired how Trump was willing to go after Obama, so they threw their support behind him, and the rest is history. The Tea Party never went away. It just became MAGA, and it’s stronger by far now than it was in 2011 or 2009. Now it’s mainstream, whereas it seemed like a fringe movement of grandparents and concerned constitutionalists back then. 

The Karl Rove types and the Brit Hume personalities have never figured it out. They keep thinking that, like some kind of rubberband, society will snap back into 1963. Democrats would become the party of the poor and Republicans of those evil businesses. Instead, we have something in 2022 that is very different, and they can’t get their minds around it. Few in Washington D.C. can. There are many reasons for it, but for the purpose of this election, the Beltway culture from all political parties was baffled by the results. But those results were real. They displayed an undercurrent of political sentiment that extended from local school boards to presidents of nations, and people were voting for change

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.

Lakota Cancel Culture Tries to Fire Darbi Boddy: My 10-year anniversary and the blueprint to Ron DeSantis and President Trump

I am proud of a lot that I see these days. Fighting against years and years of entrenched establishment politics isn’t easy. I am very proud of Ron DeSantis in Florida for standing up to Disney the way he has and all the woke actions that have been leveraged against him. And I’m proud of how Darbi Boddy in Lakota has been fighting for parental rights in my school district. But you make enemies when you fight back against the established way of things, and it can be challenging. This afternoon, April 27, 2022, the Lakota school board pressed to force Darbi to resign when she made a posting on her Facebook page that accidentally referenced a pornographic site. It was an easy mistake to make. Darbi had been trying to reference concerns over pornography in the public school curriculum, but she got the spelling wrong, and it ended up linking to pornographic material. Of course, Darbi’s enemies pounced on this misfortune and are now pushing her to resign. I can say I’ve been where Darbi is now, and some of the people on the current board at Lakota played their part in it. I could name many things that the current board members have done that are far worse than what Darbi did, so watching them take the moral high ground during an emergency board meeting on a Wednesday afternoon was reprehensible. But, I will say that I am very proud of Darbi, as I am also of Ron DeSantis and President Trump. And many others who have had to deal with cancel culture, which is what is going on at Lakota. The exploitation of a well-intentioned mistake for purely political reasons is a pretty low blow. That’s OK. Hey, if they want to set the bar that high for themselves, well, then they can live with it. 

Ironically I had just been through several meetings with people that reminded me that at the end of April of this year, it had been ten years since I went through an excruciating process that I am still angry over. The Lakota school board worked with the Cincinnati Enquirer and all the established media in Cincinnati to cancel culture me before anybody knew what that was. The event happened on March 12, of 2012. I will never forget it, it was one of the most challenging days of my life, and the cause of it was essentially that Lakota wanted to pass a tax increase. We had defeated three previous attempts, and they were ready to go for a fourth, and they had in mind to get rid of me so they could do it. Many of the levy radicals had gone to an area Kroger and conducted a survey disparaging my name very publicly, and I expressed my feelings about what I thought about them. It was fair game in my way of thinking. But because these were women and because they represented levy supporters, I was an early version of the angry white man progressive attack that we would see years later. Before Trump, nobody on the conservative side ever fought back over anything. In all the graphic details I expressed, the print media and broadcast companies all over Cincinnati picked up the story and published what I wrote about some of these levy supporters. And this prompted an interview on the Scott Sloan Show on WLW, which I did. It was tough, but I punched through it. Privately in my life, the whole world came down on me, trying to cancel me out of existence in every way they could. They went for the jugular. They wanted me obliterated. And I knew that while I was talking to Sloan on that interview, which I’ve included here. 

Slone wanted more than anything to get an apology from me, which was how all conservatives were treated back then. Later, President Trump would show that by standing up to the left-winged mob and not apologizing that the curse Saul Alinsky exposed against conservatives in Rules for Radicals could be beaten. That is the same formula that Ron DeSantis is using now in Florida and that state is turning redder by the day. It used to be a toss-up. Now it’s moving firmly to MAGA red. And now, locally, we have a mom elected as a school board member in one of the largest districts in Ohio. Of course, the establishment types don’t want her around. They have been plotting and scheming way before today to get rid of her. And they were waiting for her to stub her toe just once so they could pounce. That’s the way the game is played. It takes tough people. But before there was ever a game plan, I was there. I know how much pressure these people feel. Trump was good at it. DeSantis certainly has learned. Darbi is learning. But one thing I learned that people still remind me of, and why people were coming to me with the 10th-anniversary talk, was that they wanted to thank me for standing up to the bad guys, as they call them. Before anybody knew how the game plan worked, when I refused to apologize on the air to half a million people, under tremendous pressure, people recognized what that effort meant in the world politically. People really appreciated it. 

It was the end of that April of 2012 when I had counted 100 people who went out of their way to thank me at gas pumps, at the grocery store, out to eat with my wife for standing up to the mob at Lakota. They were thrilled that someone from the conservative side of things finally stood up to what they saw was happening from the left. That was a time when being a RINO was just being talked about. Conservatives were always expected to turn the other cheek. They were never to fight back. But because I did and I didn’t apologize for it, the people of my community were thankful. After that, I stopped doing radio or television and just published my blog. And I became much more popular as a result. I gained a lot more power. And it turned out to be much better for me as a result. That terribly hard day on the Scott Sloan Show turned out to be one of the best days that ever happened to me. And that is how it is for all conservatives who find themselves on the chopping block due to cancel culture. If you aren’t afraid of them and their silly woke rules, they have no power over you. Ultimately, voters make the decisions on who they want to represent them. Not a bunch of silly rules of fake conduct in public while some of those same board members have shown terrible judgment in private. But the lesson of the day is that when they try to cancel you, stick by your guns and make them fight you directly. Which as liberals, they will never do.

Because liberals and RINOs rely on institutionalism to save them from public judgment, they don’t know how to stand up to strong people.   When people have a representative as president, governor, or school board member who they feel is fighting on their behalf, they will support them eternally. Voters will crawl over broken glass naked to support people they know are fighting for them. I learned that lesson firsthand. Not apologizing on that WLW show was one of the best things I ever did. And it showed all who came after that taking that approach was the best way to beat Saul Alinsky’s liberal playbook. And it is the way that we take our country back one school district at a time. Never apologize to a liberal, ever! Or……………..a RINO.

Butler Country Republican Party Endorses Jim Renacci for Governor: President Trump is coming to Delaware, Ohio on April 23rd, get your tickets

It was quite remarkable that the Butler County Republican Party endorsed Jim Renacci for Governor of Ohio during the upcoming primary vote. Butler County isn’t the only endorsement for Renacci; he is picking them up at an increasing pace as the stretch toward election day has come closer. However, the Butler County Republican Party is one of the strongest conservative forces for good in the nation. Every officeholder in Butler County, which has over 400,000 people, is a Republican. Butler County likes its Republicans, and to turn away from the current governor and political heavyweight Mike DeWine is quite a public statement. It shows the tremendous Republican strength of Jim Renacci, but it also indicates to what degree Mike DeWine has lost the conservative base, and deservedly so. DeWine has operated as a Democrat. He was horrible during the Covid crisis. In many ways, he led all the blue states in lockdowns and has been a complete embarrassment to the Republican Party. If there were a picture of what a RINO looked like (a Republican in name only), Mike DeWine’s face would be their despicable example. But an endorsement from the Butler County Republican Party was no easy thing to give to Renacci. The DeWine name has been in politics for a long time, and in a less turbulent time, an endorsement of the incumbent governor would be assured. However, the times are turbulent, and Mike DeWine has led disaster straight to all our doorsteps by letting global oriented health experts tie Ohio to the sinking ship of lockdowns and mask mandates destroying businesses and people’s lives ruthlessly as the grips of authoritarian power seized all rational thought and turned DeWine into a modern version of the insane Roman emperor, Nero. Jim Renacci was a chance to start over, and when the Republican Party of Butler County was ready to make that change, it’s quite clear that the rest of Ohio was too.

I have loved Jim Renacci from the beginning and spoke to him personally during his campaign several times. He is poised to bring a Jim Renacci version of Florida’s Ron DeSantis to Ohio. I think Jim can be better than DeSantis, who has set a very high bar in many ways. Just a few days ago, I had a chance to talk to Jim Renacci again, this time for a long time in a somewhat private setting, and we talked about Trump. He didn’t want to say if he would get a Trump endorsement at that time. We talked about how tough it would be for Trump to pick anybody as an endorsement because if the other guy won, Trump would have to work with the loser when he returns to the White House in 2024 after the shellacking that is planned for the insurgent Democrats after this upcoming 2022 election. Jim Renacci was undoubtedly part of the puzzle in retaking America from the grips of Democrat activism. But again, DeWine has been in politics for a long time and has worked with the Trump administration before. In public, the relationship was workable, but behind the scenes, not so much. At one of the last campaign events Trump held in Ohio when DeWine tried to get on the stage with the president, the public booed him off, embarrassing DeWine tremendously. Trump supporters had not forgotten what DeWine did to Ohio during Covid, and they let him hear about it. A few weeks ago, I had a chance to meet the governor in Columbus, and it was evident that he was a shell of his former personality. He knew he was in political trouble. He screwed up Ohio under his first term, and he would have to pay for it. So to answer the question of endorsements, Trump is coming to Ohio on April 23rd to Delaware, just north of Columbus. Renacci will be at that event to meet with his old friend, Donald J. Trump. Get your tickets and witness history. 

So now is the time for Joe Blystone and others who are also running for governor to put their name behind Jim Renacci. They are polling at 20% or less and are not picking up endorsements, which is an early indicator of people’s voting in the primary. Joe Blystone might be a good guy with conservative policies, but he doesn’t have the depth that Renacci brings to the table, and he’s not going to get it a month before the election. Instead, he could hurt the sizable lead that Renacci does have over DeWine by staying in the race. There is undoubtedly a home for good people like Blystone in a state run by Jim Renacci. He would essentially be an extension of the Trump administration, just as Florida is presently. But splitting up that Republican vote by skimming away 20% off the top would serve only one purpose, the chance that Mike DeWine might squeak in under the door due to a split-up conservative movement. That is undoubtedly the situation with the top four candidates for the Senate, one of the primary reasons Trump is coming to Ohio on the 23rd to settle a tight race so the party can unite behind his pick. Voters want to know who Trump wants to work with within the coming days, so the need to clarify things just a few weeks ahead of the primary election is necessary. Of course, it’s risky for President Trump to put his name behind anybody since all four of the candidates are running on a Trump platform of America first. But Trump isn’t afraid of risks, and this visit to Delaware shows it and the kind of leadership that a real leader brings to politics.

That is the same situation for candidate for governor Ron Hood and his running mate Candice Keller. I think they have value, and I’d hate to see them waste it fighting against Renacci for some slice of the Trump vote when the real villain in the race is Mike DeWine. Everyone needs to unite to ensure that Mike DeWine is defeated, especially with an upcoming Trump visit to back candidates and endorsements like Jim Renacci has with the Republican Party. There are still plenty of Never Trumper RINOs in the Republican Party who will show up and vote for Mike DeWine. Even though Blystone and Hood have no chance of catching up to Renacci before the election, if they were ever going to, it would have been before now; being in the race forces Renacci to have an unreasonable lead over DeWine to win the election. Without them in the race, Renacci would win for sure. So there could be only one reason they would stay in the race because they secretly want to help DeWine, which would then destroy their brand for any hope of a political future. It’s time for them to pick sides and back a winner. In this case, it’s Jim Renacci. It really shouldn’t be hard for them; whether the issue is constitutional conservativism or abortion rights, Renacci is so much like Trump policy-wise; he will listen to people who are further in the conservative movement than he is. But DeWine isn’t. So it should be an easy decision if those candidates genuinely want what’s best for Ohio. Once the Republican Party of Butler County makes their pick, it’s a good indication of what Ohio is going to do. And they have great things to offer the Republican Party; they should be involved once Jim Renacci is elected governor, and Ohio can then become much more of a MAGA state than it is now. We can then become the Florida of the north and perhaps do even better.

The Lincoln Day Dinner of 2022: Battles coming, going, and brewing

It’s always good to talk about nice things, and the Lincoln Day Dinner for 2022 for the Butler County Republican Party was undoubtedly something good to talk about. Like I say all the time, politics is a blood sport. People aren’t always supposed to get along. So it’s not the function of a prominent Republican gathering at the Savanah Center in West Chester to just have everyone get along, even though they did. The goal of politics is to get the best people into public offices that can be obtained. Often the best management of any resource involves pressure applied to individual vision to draw it out for the public’s benefit. In Butler County, with Todd Hall as the party’s Chairman, it has undoubtedly been a success story. Butler County is a large, wealthy county in Ohio; it has over 400,000 people and a major national university. And every officeholder position in the county is held by a Republican. That is something to say and provides a good indication of what the people of Butler County are really like. But it’s not easy to manage all the ‘A type” personalities who get into politics for their communities. The people who run for office don’t tend to be the shy types, so managing all those personalities, especially when they sometimes get cross with each other, is quite a challenge, and Todd Hall does the job well, which culminated in the evening at that dinner which was nothing short of magnificent. 

Mike Pompeo came in to speak at this Lincoln Day event, along with the nationally bestselling author Vivek Ramaswamy, who managed to find time between Fox News media appearances to give a rousing speech to a hungry room of freedom fighters. Warren Davidson, of course, was there and was instrumental in bringing Mike Pompeo in, fresh from the Trump administration, where we all had the feeling of reloading for the next round of political battles that were coming next. I had a chance to talk to Jim Renacci a lot as he came down from his campaign for governor of Ohio, which is going well. There were many people from all over the state of Ohio who came to this Butler County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner, which filled the Savannah Center into every crevasse. It was great to see so many friends in one place simultaneously. The battles that everyone fights for are worth it, especially on evenings like that one. During primary season, like the one we have this year where there are so many contentious races, such as the governor race where Mike DeWine is running for re-election, and Jim Renacci was challenging him, it would be easy to have factions of discontent which wouldn’t even be able to shake hands. But the event’s mood, led by Todd Hall and guided by the diligent hands of hundreds of volunteers who worked behind the scenes for the party’s best interests, provided an atmosphere that felt more like Mar-a-Lago from Trump’s Florida home than just another political gathering. Every last touch had behind it a love of country and an intention to do good in the world. Different people, of course, have different ideas about what good is, but the pursuit of it was apparent for all to see. 

It’s not like the Butler County Republican Party was playing things easy; they recently endorsed Jim Renacci for governor over the incumbent. In the audience was Justice Pat DeWine, the son of the governor.  Jane Timken was in the audience, and Mike Gibbons, who are both running for the hotly contested Senate seat soon to be vacated by Rob Portman. There were literally hundreds of contentious side stories that could fill novels that interacted in the halls of that grand event, but what impressed me was the candor with which it was all presented. Todd Hall’s management style with all these unique personalities allows for hotly contested debate and personal battles that still celebrates the achievement voters get in the end, and that is something special. Politics is tricky under the best of circumstances, but routinely pulling off successes like what Butler County enjoys is quite an accomplishment. Of course, behind the scenes come the unifying elements of Ann Becker, whom I’ve known for many years now, going back to the Cincinnati Tea Party, which she led. Debbie Lang who always brings energy to everything she’s around. Joe Statzer and Mark Murphy work on all the details. There is a long list of people behind the scenes who make the Republican Party of Butler County, such a great organization. I single out Todd Hall because it takes a unique person to give all these diverse personalities autonomy and to trust that people will find common ground and build from that position rather than break out in fistfights from the many different perspectives that so many officeholders have. Guided by a less skilled hand, everything could turn out to be a disaster rather than the success story that it continues to be. 

Ultimately, the Lincoln Day event is a good team builder, and they are always nice to go to when the people putting them on so much love what they do. But what the public gets is a strong party that represents them where it matters most. Contention in politics is good; it forces the best people and best ideas to the surface to manage on behalf of the voters, and Butler County is an example of how it should be done everywhere in the country. The Butler County Republican Party is the example that everyone should be following, especially in the newly Trump-led Republican party. The management style it takes to unify so many diverse personalities is the stuff success seminars are built on. To have an evening in the height of election season just to take a breath of fresh air is nice. But the reminder of why so many people get into public office and how an army of volunteers behind the scenes contribute their time and energy without ever thinking about pay tells a story that is worth recognizing. If not for them and the tireless hours of work that go on behind the scenes, there would not be a great Republican Party of Butler County. There would not be a Republican in every Butler County political office. The strength of the party is because of all the effort that countless people put into it, and by the leadership of Todd Hall to have just enough guiding force to keep people together just enough but not to impose on them any dictates which might threaten their unique gifts for which voters could then select as representatives. The whole evening was just as impressive as the Butler County Republican Party is itself. It reflected many thousands of hours of hard work and an ambitious eye toward tomorrow; whereas bad as things look on the national horizon, in Butler County, Ohio, all is great and getting better. If such a formula could project itself nationwide under the next Trump presidency, there is a lot to be excited about in the years to come. Because ultimately, politics is there to serve the Republic for which we all fight to make a stand, and the voters are in charge and respected by the guiding light of hard-working people who genuinely understand how to do it right.
