The Progressive Labor Union, LEA endorses Trent Emeneker: Hoping to slide a liberal under the door for West Chester Trustee

The LEA Endorses Trent Emeneker

At this point, it’s pretty well known that the challenger for the West Chester trustee seat in Butler County, Ohio, Trent Emeneker, is not a conservative.  He has stated that he’s a registered Republican. Still, much of what he talks about, like wanting to turn West Chester into a big bureaucratic city full of city council positions and other nonsense, is excessively liberal.  It didn’t help that he did a meet and greet at Liberty Center’s AC Hotel hosted by an activist Democrat.  So Trent has loads of problems even before a single-yard sign was ever put into the ground.  But as if all that were not enough, the LEA (Lakota Education Association) has endorsed Trent, which is essentially the kiss of death in Butler County.  The LEA, of course, is the ultra-progressive labor union that runs the Lakota school system.  They work under the umbrella of the Ohio Education Association, and ultimately the National Education Association, which everyone knows by now are essentially PAC groups for Democrats and the advancement of progressive causes.  Those not sure what progressive causes are responsible for should know that they are encouraging sex education in early grade school and transsexual bathrooms.  I would go as far as to say that it is an evil organization of radical politics intent on the destruction of the United States.  But judge for yourself.  What matters is that they have endorsed Trent Emeneker and hope to squeak him under the door in an off-year race that typically has low voter turnout. 

There is nothing good that comes out of the LEA.  They essentially protect bad teachers from being fired and lobby to pay them too much money to do it.  They are wholly committed to the destruction of America as we know it.  They collect money from their union dues and apply it directly to Democrats nationwide.  If you can think of something terrible about government schools, and I can think of a lot, the root cause of the trouble goes back to teacher unions, especially the NEA.  So long as they exist and have a footprint of any kind in our schools with our children, there is no hope of making those schools better.  People understand that more now than they did even a few years ago.  At Lakota, there is an opportunity to vote for new school board members to replace the current ones, which might stand against these teacher unions better than we’ve had in the past.  Usually, there is no defense on the school board.  The LEA essentially runs everything, including putting their candidates on the board as they are trying again this year with Kelley Casper, Michael Pearl, and Doug Horton.  There are finally options this year with actual Republican endorsed candidates.  Many people are running, so voter turnout will have to be high to defeat the incumbent’s LEA has also endorsed.  So we’ll see if voters take advantage of this opportunity with great voter turnout on election day, November 2nd

The LEA endorses Trent Emeneker for West Chester Trustee

It is just that kind of low voter turnout that the LEA hopes push the liberal Trent Emeneker into a West Chester Trustee seat.  They usually have their activists who always show up to vote and preserve their intent to destroy America.  So Republican voters will have to show up and defend themselves to keep that from happening.  But as to Trent’s intent, there is no doubt about it now that the LEA has endorsed him on their web page.  When you have the LEA behind you, you know that a vast evil is not far behind.  Everything the LEA does is rooted in some destruction for the American way of life and the families that make the country great.  Behind all teacher union activities are actions intended to attack family and its institution to a progressive need.  Suppose there are members of the LEA who call themselves Republicans and just go along for the great six-figure paycheck at Lakota. In that case, they are doing like all RINOs do, help evil get a foothold into our lives with the death whisper of compliance which is silently killing our country as we speak.  Those teachers in the LEA are just as bad as the purple-headed progressives advocating gay rights, critical race theory, and globalism by saying nothing and letting evil have its way in the world. 

Trent has tried to sell himself as an old military guy hoping that blind allegiance to service might make people ignore his obvious liberalism.  His biggest complaint about the current West Chester trustees is spending a few million dollars on landscaping for the new Union Center exchange.  He considers that fiscal irresponsibility.  Yet West Chester is operating in the black, which is how it should be, and considering the amount of GDP produced at that highway exit, the landscaping costs are easily justified.  Oddly enough, at a recent debate where Trent tried to make an issue of this cost, it was Lee Wong who best slapped him down for it.  Now everyone knows I’m not a huge Lee Wong fan, one of the current trustees.  But next to Trent Emeneker, Lee sounds like Donald Trump.  Lee explained well the need for the landscaping in a very Trump-like way.  Union Center in West Chester is one of the premier spots in the entire country for economic activity.  I would put the GDP moving through that exit among the top in the country.  There is nothing wrong with having some nice flowers there to greet the mass commerce that occurs.   Of course, nobody talks about that the LEA is against all capitalist activity as they are socialists and communists in their origins.  They are “the vote red for ed” types. The red is the red flag of communism, so for Trent to attack a few flowers when Lakota is bleeding hundreds of millions of dollars into these LEA employees advocating against family values, small government ideas, and the promotion of the religion of climate change, Trent proves he’s just a stooge for the LEA liberalism and not interested in fiscal responsibility.  If he indeed were, the LEA would never endorse him because all they want is a run-away wallet with no limit on the credit card. 

So remember as you vote that the LEA endorsed Trent Emeneker.  I don’t think it will change anything.  The same several thousand people who will vote to keep the current big spenders on the Lakota school board will vote for Trent as a trustee.  But there are a lot more Republicans in Butler County than Democrats.  It will all come down to voter turnout.  If you don’t want to see more LEA liberalism contaminating our community, then be sure to get out on election night and vote. Don’t just show up and vote for Trump or the mid-terms.  Vote now and for the same reasons, defend your turf from these radical progressives and their plans of doom for our children.  And know when you vote that Trent Emeneker is one of them.  The LEA does not endorse Republicans, not real ones.  They are out to destroy conservative politics so they would never put their name next to anybody who won’t help them do just that.  Trent is a big government guy, which is why they want him.  But, if you show up to vote, you can stop their plans.  So, could you not take it for granted?  The time for action is coming up; make sure you are part of the solution.

LEA Endorses Current School Board: More reasons to vote for Darbi Boddy and Issac Adi

The LEA is wanting to Pick their Own Boss

News flash, the LEA, the Lakota Education Association have endorsed their three picks for the school board.  They endorse Kelley Casper and Michael Pearl, incumbents, and support the Brad Lovell replacement, Doug Horton.  No surprise there, as I’ve always said, those are all the liberals on the school board and why it has never functioned correctly.  The labor union puts its own kind of people on the board, so it’s no wonder that union contracts get approved without a whimper, transexual bathrooms are something to even talk about, and Critical Race Theory is infesting the hallways of all the schools.  When you let the teacher’s union pick their bosses, you naturally get a disaster, which is precisely why public education all across the country right now is in a crisis.  But I think it’s good to see these endorsements because now the union is saying the quiet part out loud.  For so many years, they have hidden their intentions beyond a bipartisan mask that they used to hide the politics of these candidates. This year, because of the pressure, the LEA had to show their cards, and once they did, every voter is now armed with a truth that wasn’t there for them before.  I’ve always said it, but now people can see for themselves.

Two Republican endorsed candidates created the pressure I support emphatically, Darbi Boddy and Issac Adi.  There are other challengers as well, but it was the Republican endorsement that made the faces of the LEA melt and decry how unfair it was for them.  They expected everyone to keep playing by the rules of impartiality. At the same time, they put their people in the office in the background and destroyed the Lakota budget with union nonsense and progressive politics.  If there is ever a hope of fixing government schools, the priority is to get the politics out of them.  And there is nothing about labor unions that isn’t about politics, especially the teacher’s union.  As in the case of Lakota, the LEA is a subsidiary of the OEA, the Ohio Education Association.  Then, of course, the OEA is a subsidiary of the NEA, the National Education Association.  You end up with a massive political action group of members who are soldiers for progressive politics, and the money we pay them off property taxes is taken and used to fuel the Democrat Party.  These unions do not give money to Republicans.  They are purely a radical political arm of the Democrat Party.  And in Butler County, Ohio, where Lakota is located, many people would be surprised to learn that. 

I always thought it was common knowledge of the connection between labor unions and the Democrat party.  A decade or so ago, I dealt with this issue often, but to me, that felt like just yesterday.  There is a whole new generation of parents now who were little kids themselves back then, and they don’t know about these kinds of things.  They want their kids to have a shot at a decent life, and they think by dropping those kids off at a government school, that somehow their kids will get the support and education they need for life.   They’d love it if politics were not such a dividing line, and they glaze over when these kinds of topics come up.  But the truth of the matter is, even if Republicans just sat in a faraway office and did not play the game, the kids in all public schools would continue to be harassed into converts of progressive causes, the kinds of things that Democrats care about.  Just as the gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe said in Virginia recently, he didn’t believe parents should be telling schools what to teach. You see the same attitude among the teacher unions across the country.  They think they own your children and that they are a shared resource among us all for consumption as the collective sees fit. 

The game works like this; labor unions need an army to advocate for their future progressive causes.  And teachers specifically use the chaos of liberalism to drive change, making school boards throw endless amounts of money at them, spiking their payrolls to extraordinary levels.  When you hear the stories that teachers don’t make very much money, you hear union nonsense.  Many teachers at Lakota make six figures.  They aren’t going to go hungry in this century or the next.  And of course, their union contracts always get approved because, as you can see in Lakota, they advocate for their people to be on the board, union stooges who will lay down and give them anything they want.  Just as the incumbents at Lakota have over this past year, all three of the names the LEA has endorsed have worked essentially on behalf of the LEA union and not the community in general.  When we elect a school board, we are supposed to be putting in place a management team that will work with all the elements to make a successful school.   As things have been for decades, everything has been tilted away from the families and their children and leveraged toward the power of the labor unions and building up the Democrats as a national party. 

Well, at Lakota, we wanted to change that, and there are several good picks to choose from to replace Kelley Casper, Michael Pearl and keep Doug Horton from becoming a problem in the future.  The Republican endorsed candidates Darbi Boddy, and Issac Adi could work well with the current Republican board member Lynda O’Conner to gain a three-vote majority, and that by itself would dramatically help the situation at Lakota.  But people would have to show up and vote.  There are far more Republicans in Butler County than Democrats.  But on off-year elections with these kinds of races, most of the Republicans stay home.  Usually, there aren’t such good people to pick from, but this year there is.  We know that the union picks will show up to vote; they have their steady stream of supporters who always drink the Kool-Aid.  They will get a lot of votes, as they always do, from pro-union radicalism.  That would mean that many Republicans would have to show up on election night and vote for the school board, who usually would sit home that night.  The LEA is worried about it, and for a good reason.  We want them to worry about it.  They shouldn’t control our school board, and they want to keep it that way.  But for the first time that I can think of, voters finally have a choice. 

We don’t have to accept this premise of the labor unions running our schools and taking endless amounts of money from our tax base to stuff their faces and greedy hearts.  And in a not so indirect way, fueling a Democrat party seeking to destroy our country, starting with our children.  If nothing else got voters to go out into the night and cast a vote for Darbi Boddy and Issac Adi, it would be the chance to right wrongs we can all see.  But for once in our community, to do something about it.  We don’t have to sit around and take it anymore.  For a change, we can change that corrupt system for the better with a simple vote and set an example that the rest of the nation can follow.  We can lead in Butler County, Ohio and take back our schools and our kids, and beat back the power these labor unions have over our lives.  Once and for all.

The Story of Vanessa Wells: United Nations and threats of murder at Lakota Schools

To listen to the whole episode on Spotify, copy and paste the link into your search engine

This is an excellent podcast of Vanessa Wells, one of the Republican endorsed candidates for the upcoming Lakota School Board election in November of 2021. The player should work but if you have trouble the link shown above may only play the intro to the show. If it does get stuck to get to the whole 51-minute interview, you can simply type in your computer browser open.spotify.com then put the show “Cancelled Out” into the search. Then simply look for Vanessa Wells, or otherwise, Ep. 27-3: Canceled Conversations: Vanessa Wells. Or if you have Spotify, simply look them up there and play it like a usual podcast. That may sound like a lot, but it’s worth doing. It tells how Vanessa became a candidate for the Lakota school board in 2021 by expiring every means possible to get justice for her daughter. After a child in the school had diplomatic immunity because the father was an ambassador of the United Nations, a little boy threatened to kill Vanessa’s daughter and further went on for quite a long time to threaten her in school, making the classroom experience a miserable one. Vanessa tried to get the school to act, but all they wanted to do was cover up the story and attempt to pressure her little girl into putting up with the situation. This happens far more than you might think, and to hear Vanessa tell this riveting story is well worth the work. Maybe it’s just my site that is having trouble. But at least the link above gives all the information you would need to listen to the full podcast on Spotify.

This is an old story with Lakota schools.  They have an extensive profile, one of the largest schools in Ohio, and the school boards have spent much of its history trying to cover up stories that might make the school look bad. That’s why Vanessa decided she wanted to run for the school board because she got tired of dealing with the school board at Lakota and decided to be part of a solution.  If they wouldn’t listen to her, then she would just run herself.  She has told me her story several times, and I have written about it.  But to get the whole story packed into one podcast was unique, without interruption. It’s a story many parents can share with her.  She certainly isn’t alone.  But perhaps this year at Lakota, with voters’ support, she can finally be part of a solution that has long been needed. 

Vanessa is a fighter; in May of 2021, she had sued Lakota’s school board for transparency violations in hiding behind Covid to quell anger from parents over transexual policies and Critical Race Theory.  The president of the Lakota board at the time, Brad Lovell, who is moving on to a job in Sycamore Twp, was skipping through procedures designed to show transparency due to the pressure of the increased anger from parents.  Like many schools, Lakota was using Covid restrictions to manage the public forums, which caused issues that granted a settlement in the lawsuit.  Vanessa is undoubtedly not a pushover, and she had already taken severe steps to show leadership even when it was hard to do so.  Not everyone is bad on the school board; one person has been trying to improve the situation.  But two of the current board members, Kelley Casper and Michael Pearl, have been disasters of progressive causes, and they need to be voted out for their complicity in many matters. Vanessa’s situation is just one story of many, and time and time again, the board has punted rather than deal with the issues.  Vanessa is committed to making the hard decisions that will have to be completed and have already proven that she will not run away when things get tough.  In her short time as an activist at Lakota, she has more than shown the teeth of a committed parent, resident, and manager. 

In that regard, the podcast is worth the effort and time to listen to.  So many times in these school board races, we get phony people who want to use the position to get an administrative job, just like Brad Lovell did.  They say they care about the kids, but when their actions are put to reality, they only care about protecting the institution of public education itself, to hell with kids.  That is not what Vanessa does, and she has the track record to prove it.  But you don’t have to take my word for it.  Listen to Vanessa for yourself at the podcast listed here and judge for yourself. It’s a story made for Hollywood, and it’s happening in our backyard.  But unlike the woke movies of these days, there is a hero, and if voters have the courage to vote on election night, we might have a happy ending in Lakota for the first time in many years.

Just Another Bobblehead is Running for Lakota School Board: Douglas Horton and two other progressive incumbents seek to bring CRT to our community

Just a little school board news for the local crowd.  It’s relevant to the larger audience due to its importance in the scheme of things.  All school boards are essential, so I hope that by watching what goes on in my local school district of Lakota, other communities will learn a few things for their sakes.  A short time ago, I reported that Brad Lovell, an activist toward Critical Race Theory on the Lakota school board, took a significant six-figure job at Sycamore schools across town. His wife is still a teacher belonging to the teacher’s union at Lakota.  It was always a problem for Brad in this upcoming election as his seat was up this fall because he was double-dipping in many ways.  The wife, as an employee of the school he has managed, was a conflict of interest.  Then his Critical Race Theory activism was a real problem that had stirred up quite a hornet’s nest of angry, high-heeled moms recently activated to all this Lakota progressive activism by staying home with their kids due to Covid.  Before the Covid shutdowns, many people didn’t know about the massive radicalism penetrating all public schools from the state school board that had put their arms around the Marxist Black Lives Matters movement.  They were looking to impose it on all students, everywhere.  So with all that to consider, it was brilliant for Brad to take his big administrative job using the Lakota school board as a springboard and stay out of the upcoming election.  But of course, the other progressive activists on the Lakota school board would want a Brad replacement.  The currently liberal activists voting for all progressive causes like transgender rights and BLM are Julie Schaffer, Kelly Casper, and the newest member Michael Pearl. They had been in lockstep with Brad toward the BLM movement, putting Michael Pearl in front as a kind of shield from reality.  They needed another Brad to keep things going on the board, so they picked a bobblehead candidate who would surely rubberstamp every vote the three activists came up with by the name of Douglas Horton. 

Just another Bobblehead on School Board

Like I said in the video above, I’m not the one who made a bobblehead of myself and put it on a Facebook page.  And that says a lot about who Douglas Horton is as a person.  I have committed hundreds of thousands of words toward the psychology of school board members, and there is no question that the roles typically inspire the more liberal activists in any community.  I also talk a lot about the nonpartisan nature of school boards, which is dangerous because it hides liberal activism.   For instance, a candidate like Horton will likely claim to be a Republican by voting record, just as Brad claimed to be. Still, in reality, they know that they’d have no chance in a Republican stronghold like Butler County unless they did claim to be conservative.  The problem is always in how left or right-center on a political scale is measured.  Modern media and the soccer mom sentiment think that being right of center politically measures socialism and communism.  Not free-market capitalism and regulated commerce.  When media people talk about candidates being hard right or hard left, their scale is measured with the center of those indications already being in the world of communism.  So everything is on the left, and that is where we start with people like Brad Lovell and his school board replacement, Douglas Horton.  As long as nobody digs too deep into their minds, nobody, including themselves, knows what the hell they are, which is why sports is always a good distraction for them.  It allows them to hide their liberalism from even themselves because sports is generally an excellent neutral ground in the world, except for the recent politics of wokeness, which is changing rapidly.

The candidates I am supporting for the three seats coming up this fall on the Lakota school board are Vanessa Wells, Issac Adi, Karine Causse, and Darbi Boddy.  I know all those names very well, just as I know the needs of the Lakota school board, and am excited at the prospect of any three of them replacing the incumbents.  Another thing I say all the time, especially these days, is if you don’t like the management of your government, then replace them.  And that certainly holds on school boards.  Instead of crying and whining about how evil Critical Race Theory is and being a victim of transgender progressive values, replace the school board, and this year, voters will have that chance.  One thing that concerns me is that there are many candidates and voter engagement in school board elections is generally 5% to 10%.  That makes it hard to beat incumbents, and they will always get the standard teacher’s union activist vote to protect the high wages that unionized teachers always get.  These elections work because the top three vote-getters will be the new board members, so any challengers to the incumbents will have a steep hill to climb in voter engagement. But that problem can be solved with increased voter engagement. I think these school board challengers I mentioned that I liked are all outstanding, very articulate, and genuinely have their hearts into what is best for Lakota.  We’ve had a mismanaged mess of liberalism and progressive sentiment loaded with problems, so it will be interesting to see how things flush out.

But as an example of everything we don’t want in one of these school board positions is Douglas Horton, who is tone-death that he thought it wise to display a bobblehead of himself and use it as a Facebook profile picture.  It might be a cute thing to do for someone’s mancave or as some joke at a fraternity party.  People might giggle over it at a drinking party of young thirty-somethings who are new in life and have kids just going to Lakota who have no idea what they are doing in the world.  But Lakota is made up of a lot of older people who are staunch Trump supporters.  Their kids have long ago left the house, and they are stuck paying all the extraordinary taxes that this current school board has imposed on them, and they aren’t happy about it one bit.  And they are not pleased about the Critical Race Theory commitment that this current board has allowed infecting their community.  I don’t want to pick on Doug, but a quick check on his name brought up that bobblehead which is more than just a metaphor.  Knowing that Brad wasn’t going to file for another term because he needed to move on before the brand damage of this upcoming election smeared him for good says everything about how Douglas Horton ended up on the list.  He thinks he has a chance based on the types of people he associates with.  But the rest of the school board members do too, and they think that’s the world we live in, where bobbleheads rubberstamp whatever comes out of the Ohio School Board, and ultimately, the crooked Biden White House.   Yet, I have news for those who think that way, it will take more than a bobblehead to run Lakota, and I don’t think anybody in that camp understands to what degree.

Vote For Vanessa Wells to Lakota’s School Board: Elgin Card is just the beginning of the problem

Vote For Vanessa Wells to Lakota’s School Board

Vanessa Wells, shown in the video above, didn’t foresee herself running for school board at Lakota a few years ago.  She was a mom, just like everyone else sending their kids to school.  She and her husband moved to the Lakota district specifically because the school had a good reputation. Many thousands of similar parents could tell about their experience and reasoning for moving to the Lakota school district.  And that dream was alive and well up until the point in time that a politically immune resident’s son threatened to kill her daughter while in school at Lakota, and nobody wanted to deal with the problem.  At that point, Vanessa considered her options.  First, she decided to pull her child out of danger, out of class, and homeschool her.  That solved the immediate problem of the threat in the classroom and Lakota’s school board having no stomach to do anything about it.  As I say all the time, the kind of liberalism that grows in all public schools emphasizes the institution, not the essence of the individual child.  Of course, the Lakota school board wasn’t going to deal with a foreign agent and all the political attachments to the case by defending the rights of one individual child. That’s not the political climate of any school board or school system—to protect individual rights unless those rights advance a progressive cause, such as gay rights or race-baiting.  Threatening to kill another student when it’s a young white lady born of traditional white parents is grounds for dismissing the issue altogether.  After all, the radicals of the political left are threatening to eliminate white people all the time, and this was just one more of them.

Yet, for Vanessa, that wasn’t good enough.  She loves her kid the way all parents do; she has to defend at least her right to exist.  Hiding at home homeschooling was a retreat away from a system that our tax money is paying for, which has been openly hostile to the type of targets that Critical Race Theory seeks to attack. That’s what was being taught at Lakota schools under various masks they use to deter public outcry.  But the school system’s mission could never have been made more evident. They were committed to the progressive implementation of political goals aligned with the teacher’s union, and anybody who got in the way of that would be run over. Vanessa’s family was just the latest in a long list over the years who have found themselves chewed up and spit out by a government institution that is more committed to creating a real-life Brave New World rather than a bright-eyed child entering adulthood ready to meet the challenges of life. That’s when Vanessa decided to run for the school board and directly fight the corrosive elements that were making school life dangerous for kids like hers. To target Critical Race Theory at its source, the school board created the position of Elgin Card, and that was the feature of Vanessa’s presentation.

You can hear Vanessa explain her personal story and her experiences dealing with the school board in the videos contained here.  She also presented the kind of radicalism in Lakota school’s hallways advocated directly by the six-figure school employee, Elgin Card, which should concern everyone.  Additionally, Elgin Card’s social media screen captures further display the evidence of Critical Race Theory being taught directly in class.  In the videos here, it is evident that Vanessa isn’t alone in this concern.  Many people showed up at a local church to learn what they could do to stop CRT teaching at Lakota.  I was surprised by the showing because I knew many threats made by the usual teacher union surrogates on the same scale as what we see on the national level in politics attached to the Black Lives Matter Marxism movement.  It’s very much happening in all our school districts, specifically Lakota. It’s a big target, one of the most prominent schools in the state of Ohio in an affluent neighborhood.  So, by attacking Lakota, the Marxists behind the Black Lives Matters movement see an opportunity, and the harassment of any resistance to their plans was deep on their minds.  There were plenty of threats made to discourage people from coming to this filmed event.

Vanessa Wells talks CRT at Lakota Schools

But as you can see for yourself, a lot of people came anyway.  I was expecting a crowd of 25 or so concerned parents.  Even with all the threats leading up to it, those who showed up were visible from the footage.  That’s precisely why there aren’t more Vanessa Wells parents out there because when they stick their heads up, the radicals in the school district immediately move to cut them down.  Any way possible.  And they pride themselves in their ability in much the way that blue state governors have become obsessed with Covid mandates to boss around their populations.  The same thing is going on at Lakota.  When parents complain, the school board appeases them with a gently worded email, almost like patting a dog on the head to make them happy and stop barking.  But then they turn around and hire expensive radicals like Elgin Card at Lakota to implement BLM political Marxist strategies, essentially with an openly hostile approach to most of the Lakota student population.  Lakota isn’t seeking to teach diversity and fairness, as they claim.  They are seeking outright Marxism from Black Lives Matters which is evident by the screen captures of Elgin Card himself. That’s why it’s such a great benefit that Vanessa has decided to run for the school board at Lakota and offered to bring leadership to these matters where it is needed.  It would be great if more parents joined her, but she’s a great start. 

It wasn’t easy for Vanessa; I can tell you that.  But she’s a fighter; it’s in her nature. She’s also brilliant.  While it might make sense to just homeschool her child, turning away from a vast evil in her backyard didn’t make sense for her, so she’s working to improve the situation precisely what we should all be doing.  The clear answer to these problems is to replace the management that allowed them to happen, which is 4 out of 5 school board members.  Many people don’t know it, but up until this year Lakota, led by Brad Lovell, was planning to ask for even more money on a tax increase just so the board could hire more people like Elgin Card at more than $100,000 each to bring this level of radicalism to our community school.  Because of Covid and the election year theatrics, they backed off it for now.  But they indeed plan to as soon as they can.  After all, they have to pay for the teacher contract that they just voted for, and they can only pay for those raises with a tax increase which they are now committed to.  And think how many radical teachers are just like Elgin Card waiting to be activated.  Before this new diversity position that the school board created for Elgin, he was the principal at Lakota West.  So, there are more like him waiting for a chance to bring more radicalism to the children of Lakota.  At this point, the only legal means we have to defeat this attack is to replace the school board, starting with Vanessa Wells, and the courage she managed to muster to face an onslaught of evil intent to destroy us all, one child at a time.

Vote for Isaac Adi: Fighting the poison of CRT that is now unleashed in Lakota schools

Vote For Isaac Adi

Did I tell you, dear reader, how much I love Isaac Adi!  Oh, I didn’t, well let me tell you how much.  Isaac and I have known each other for a while now through other people; he’s running for school board in the Lakota district I talk about so much, which has been under attack like most public schools for their implementation of Critical Race Theory.  Isaac is a man of color, not that it matters to me, but for visual considerations, people would assume that he might support CRT because of the color of his skin.  But, that’s not how Isaac conducts himself. He’s a smart man from Nigeria who fled that country to come to what he considers the greatest country in the world.  He came to America for many of the same reasons that many immigrants do, for the opportunity.  Opportunities that the rest of the world doesn’t offer.  And now he’s a citizen who has been in the United States for a few decades now, and he considers that citizenship to be a great treasure.  He has read the Constitution many times back and forth and understands his rights as a human being.  I met him recently at an event where we could catch up to each other, and we had an excellent time together.  He was speaking at the event included in this article about the dangers of CRT, which is one of his driving reasons for running for that elected office, which I am ecstatic that he is.

Isaac has raised his family in the United States, as his children were born in Nigeria.  And as he said in his speech, two of them have grown up and obtained Master’s Degrees taking advantage of the opportunities that can only be found in America.  And now he wants to protect those opportunities for a new generation.  But he smartly has seen what is going on in all public schools, all across the country.  Something he would call a poison to the minds of our children.  Over the last year, Lakota schools have made a hard left turn toward outright Marxism using Critical Race Theory as the mask to sell it to the public through “equity” and “diversity.” That is what led to Isaac speaking at that event with others concerned about the same issues.  Another school board candidate, Vanessa Wells, also spoke at the event for many of the same reasons, which we’ll get into with their own topics because they deserve that kind of specificity.  But Isaac’s story was a touching one, as articulated in the video above.  He has a strong accent, and it’s a little hard to hear at times, but it was so refreshing to meet and listen to such a fresh voice from our community who is all in on bringing justice and purity to the school board process, which is often such a sad story.  Most people who offer themselves up as school board members, such as the 4 out of 5 that Lakota currently has, are just monstrosities of stupidity and liberal community activism.  However, which is the point of talking about this Lakota issue, if you want to drive Marxist influences out of your community, you have to start with the school board.  As Isaac says, if the youth are corrupted and destroyed by such an ideology, there will be no tomorrow.  All the work we put into our children will be for nothing because liberalism will gain control of their minds and ruin them forever, which is precisely what is going on at Lakota schools with Critical Race Theory.

What is Critical Race Theory

In many ways, Isaac is the perfect candidate; he’s everything the left politically desires, he’s a man of color, he’s an immigrant, he’s a lot of things they claim they want in the world.  But………………… .he’s a conservative. He’s very religious.  And he’s astute.  He says in his video, which I agree with emphatically, and say all the time myself, if you fail in America, it’s for one primary reason: you are lazy.  For those who don’t achieve success, it’s because they aren’t willing to do the work, which is one reason Isaac Adi wants to be on the school board of Lakota.  He wants to see that other students get a good chance at life and that they don’t fall into the false narrative of Marxism that is very much poised to destroy an entire generation of young people currently going through the public education system.  Isaac wants to be part of the solution, not to add to the problem.   As much as it shouldn’t matter, an older white guy running for the same spot would distract from the situation. Still, with Isaac, nobody could look at him and not say he’s the creation of the American dream, a man of diversity, a man of opportunity, a man of intelligence, and a man of God. He’s precisely the kind of man I want to see sitting down with a budget of over 200 million dollars and managing it on behalf of the community.  Meanwhile, an outrageous teacher’s union full of radical Marxist ideology seeks to steal it all and turn it into political radicalism at the expense of our children.  Isaac is a very nice guy, but he’s not stupid, and I am very excited at the prospect of voting for him this coming fall.

But more than all that, Isaac Adi gets what the problem is.  Through way left political ideology that this current school board, except for Lynda O’Conner, has fully embraced, they are poisoning our children.  Isaac could turn his back on all that; his kids are grown.  He could do as most people do and tune out Lakota because it’s too much a pain in the ass to listen to those idiots cackle like hens in those school board meetings.  It takes a particular person to want to deal with the bureaucracy that is hung on everything in public education and do the management required to fight off Marxism and produce truly educated people for the future of our country.  What this current school board is doing in many ways is evil because they are endorsing the radical leftist ideology with their complacency.  We all are who turn away and allow this poison of Critical Race Theory to corrupt our children and for the school board members to clap it along as if they were building a bonfire with the American flag and all the potential of the future.  Great people like Isaac Adi are what you hope rises out of those ashes to put the fire out and fight off all those who want to start it again.  He is a solution that many didn’t even know they needed, but once they learn how bad it is, they will be happy to learn that Adi is there and that his love for his community runs deep and is pure.  He loves that he came to the Lakota school district as an immigrant and that his family had great opportunities that he couldn’t have obtained anywhere else in the world.  But now it’s his time to defend our community from an encroaching evil that is very real and is on our doorstep.  And history will judge how we all deal with that evil.  The least that you can do, dear reader, is to vote for someone willing to stand up to it.  The best thing to do would be to join the fight against that evil.  But at the very least, you can vote for Isaac Adi and the terror of poison that he is willing to fight on your behalf.

The Great Option of Homeschooling: To see just how bad public schools are, walk the halls of Lakota

Saving Kids by Homeschooling Them

Just to let you know how bad it is, the pictures included here were taken in one of the 22 schools within my school district of Lakota.  As you’ll see, it’s all about Critical Race Theory, all the time with them.  So much so I would consider them a danger to any child.  I would never in a million years send any kid of mine to a public school these days.  If you want to know what’s wrong with public schools, take a walk through the halls of Lakota in Cincinnati, Ohio, and you’ll get a good idea.  I never thought they were any good, but now, they are just horrendous.  Ironically, just as revealing as those pictures were, I had the chance to meet up with some old friends at the Annie Oakley Wild West Show I’ve been involved in for over a few decades.  They have a swarm of kids I’ve watched grow up, and now they are all bloomed.  I only see them once a year, so it has been fascinating watching them grow, and I can only say that they are such intelligent and fully developed kids.  They are super nice kids, very gifted, socially extremely confident.  They don’t have that beat-down look on their faces that most children have these days, 22 and under.  Taking those kids out of the cesspool of public education has been great for them. The results show after looking at those pictures from the walls of Lakota schools, which is reflective of all public schools all over the country, it’s easy to see why parents are upset.  They have a right to be. But at least there is a silver lining I’ve known about but haven’t had much exposure to.  Like the kids I mentioned who have homeschooled their entire lives, more and more parents are taking advantage of that option.  My kids are a few of them, and they were over this week showing me the learning material they have for starting this school year, and I have to say, I was very impressed. 

This is what is in the Halls of Lakota Schools

I remember what it was like; as I told in the story above, public schools have been garbage for decades.  They weren’t very good when I was in school.  They were terrible when my kids were going to school, so much so that we homeschooled for one of their years, and in their last two years, they finished their courses online and graduated at home.  Both of my children graduated early and spent time in Europe learning about the world while their classmates from Lakota were still trying to get a date for the prom.  And as for today, I would say, if you love your children at all, do not send them to the garbage heap that is public school for the life of you.  It’s no accident at Lakota and many other schools that they have started All Day Kindergarten because that is all that government schools are to parents, a free babysitting service ran by radical progressive activists paid for by the taxpayers.  That is why they are also pushing pre-school options because parents have kids, but they need to get back to work.  So they drop their kids off at these government schools to raise because they need the free babysitting, then wonder 12 years later why their kids are all screwed up as young adults.  Well, it doesn’t have to be that way, and my kids love their kids, so they’ve been looking for options, and what they brought me to show me was some of the most wonderful homeschooling material I’ve ever seen.  There was a time when my wife and I homeschooled our kids because the public school at the time, Mason, wanted to teach sex education in the 4th grade by putting a condom on a cucumber.  Well, these were my kids; they were little and were never going to have an opportunity to need to learn to put a condom on a penis.  My kids were going to be little and learning as much as they could as long as I could fight off the evils of the world to let their childhoods be as good as possible.  The school freaked out when my wife and I wouldn’t sign the permission slip, and a fight ensued that got quite bad.  It resulted in us pulling our kids from school and homeschooling for a year, which at that time was one of the hardest things we had ever done.

CRT at Lakota Schools

It wasn’t the education that was hard; it was the social stigma.  I never cared, but it mattered to my wife.  We were in our 30s at the time, and we did not have the support of our parents.  For our parents and society in general, public school was about dances, school jackets, and class rings.  They were the kind of people who went to their class reunions at five and 10-year intervals.  The friends they made in public school lasted a lifetime.  It was like the movie Grease, the school was about friends and memories, and they hated that we were robbing our children of those great things.

They Have Groups for Everything, But American Appreciation at Lakota

Only, school had changed since their days, and they had no idea what was going on.  When the Department of Education was put in place by teacher union lobbying in 1979, I was in the 2nd or 3rd grade at the time.  I was able to watch firsthand how that old view of public education changed into a radical political cesspool controlled by labor unions and their leftist desires.  I hated school more and more each year I was there; it was stifling to creativity and involved too much group think.   By the time my kids went to school, it was worse.  Not in the first few years, but by the time they were trying to push off sex education to 4th graders, it had gotten out of control.  Most of the kids were going home to empty houses from the school’s logic, and the kids were having sex until the parents got home from their jobs.  But that wasn’t fair to the kids who went home to a loving parent or two and had good lives at home.  Those kids didn’t need to be destroyed by such education methods of social rendering at the expense of innocence.  So the only real option was to homeschool them, but back then, when my kids were of that age, there wasn’t great social support. 

The Future is Women, so think of all the Young White Boys, what are they Supposed to do?

Now that has changed, my kids will teach all their kids at home, and all their Instagram friends think it’s great.  Of course, they have parental support from us, but more than that, most of their friends are saying now that they wish they could afford to teach their kids at home instead of sending them to these terrible public schools.  The branding of public schools has gone south over the years.  Most adults who have kids wish they made enough money to either send their kids to private schools or take advantage of the tremendous network of homeschool resources available now.  They feel the same way the rest of us think about public schools, except they don’t have the option of staying home because they have jobs to teach their kids at home.  My kids have built their life around the matter, and I’m proud of them, even more so now that I’ve seen what kind of resources my grandchildren will have to work with. I’ve seen the results of homeschooled children.  Every kid in America should have such a chance at a good education.  But they just aren’t going to get it at these misrun government schools as they are today.  If you love your kid, you will not send them to any of them.  Because if there is anything genuinely equal in this world, it’s that public schools are all equally bad.  If the government runs them, they are terrible for your kid, and you should do everything you can to avoid those places at all costs.

Brad Lovell is a Great Example of What’s Wrong in Public Education: Taking a job in Sycamore keeps him advocating progressive tyrannies like Critical Race Theory

Why School Boards Never Listen

Brad Lovell of the Lakota school board in Northern Cincinnati is an excellent example of what’s wrong with public education.  Likely wherever you are reading this, you have your version of a Brad Lovell type.  You wonder why the school board never listens, and when they do, they give you appeasement answers, never really dealing with the actual problem.  When for instance, there are radical activists who push transexual bathrooms in a public education setting, and the school board never shows an inclination to deal with it or to go along with it and expect the community to live with their decision as it falls on deaf ears, you can know that for people like Brad, he’s using the school board to protect his nest eggs. Brad’s wife, for example, is a teacher at Lakota.  From his position on the board, he can protect her job and benefits in many indirect ways as a member of the school board, while building up his portfolio for a job like he just landed with Sycamore schools, just across town from Lakota as a Director of Business Operations.  This is ironic because he recently made it clear on the board that he wanted to blow all the reserve money at Lakota and to spend it into oblivion on completely useless renovations so that he could push another tax increase.  The school board punted this year on it, likely due to the election this fall, but Brad loves to spend money and has a big progressive mindset regarding public education, which other schools love, like Sycamore.  But Sycamore wouldn’t have known Brad from a hole in the ground had he not been a school board member in good standing with the teacher’s union at Lakota, which has provided him with a great networking opportunity to exploit.

You could go to virtually any school board in the United States and see the same behavior from the school board.  School boards were designed to be volunteer services by the community to manage their local school systems. Still, with the big international trade unions running the majority of the employees, community volunteers are often not equipped to deal with the political influences of these radical unions.  The union tactics are usually enough to keep good people from running.  That usually means what you get is someone like Brad Lovell, who wants a job in education and will do anything and endure everything to have it.  If the political pressures mean he needs to be a big-time progressive, then he’ll do it.  People like these types often tell themselves they are doing all this for their children, but the truth is, they love the public adulation and the feeling of community that all liberals enjoy.  That sense of community that liberal people crave like a blanket at night to hide under from the monsters they think is in their closet.  They are big spenders of other people’s money, and when people complain, they do nothing about the complaints.  Their real goal is to get the next big education job and show the system itself that they can be trusted to keep all the secrets in such places as public schools.

I could name off many cases over the years where a teacher or administrator would send naked pictures of themselves to students they fell in love with.  It happens more than you’d like to believe.  It’s always a frustrating mystery why school boards sit on their hands and do nothing about it.  Well, people like Brad don’t want to screw up their next big gig like going to Sycamore for a job as a “business director.” The goal of most school board candidates is to make friends and keep the image of the school on the high side.  Not to protect the students from predatory teachers or the eventualities of financial collapse because the teachers can’t live within a budget and always look to the school board to rubber-stamp everything.  Brad is on the record to be a tax increase supporter and active one.  So that makes him a member of the club in the school system and an attractive prospect at Sycamore.  They protect their own once it’s been established who they are.  Brad has managed to market himself as one of “them” since his election to the board in 2017. 

When a teacher or administrator gets in trouble with a student over sex, or other bad behavior, it is nearly impossible to fire them.   Instead, they reshuffle the deck in public education and move them to a different district.  After all, there’s not much difference between Sycamore, Lakota, Fairfield, or Cincinnati Public.  Young parents are not quite wise to the world’s ways think there are differences, which is why they buy homes in Lakota instead of downtown Cincinnati. Still, all government schools are rackets built only to support progressive causes, like Critical Race Theory and very high incomes for those who play along, like Brad Lovell, for a good paycheck and a chance to be someone in life.  What business is there in Sycamore for an Operations Director?  The product is our children.  Schools don’t sell anything; they just take, take, take from those who produce things in the world.  What is meant by a Director of Business Development is someone who can set the image of the school into something that can get the subsequent tax increase passed.  And Brad needed to take a job like that before he ruined himself by trying to push Lakota through a levy increase.  A few failures at the voting booth often destroy the brands of the administrators guilty of supporting tax increases for quite a long time. 

The critical thing to know is that this is the nature of the game for school boards, so when you wonder why they never get involved in problems like transexual bathrooms or critical race theory, and your cries fall on deaf ears, now you know why.  The school board people themselves don’t take money for the jobs. Still, they use the positions to build them up for other things later, like a nice, high-paying administrative job that is just a token position to justify another tax increase on property owners.  That is the aim of the teacher unions, which are very committed to abolishing private property as a communist goal from the beginning.  Most teachers in these public-school unions aren’t sitting around reading Karl Marx.  But where else can they make six figures with their worthless skills?  And where else could someone like Brad Lovell be considered an “administrator” of any worth?  Government jobs are done for the dreary average who surrender thought to the system. Those employees aren’t asking questions about ideology so long as they are getting paid within the system.  And that’s why Brad will never listen to concerned parents as a Lakota school board member.  Because across town during the day, he is one of the paid stooges who is making big money off the public education system.  And he won’t do anything to jeopardize that job, which is why they picked him.  It doesn’t matter if a race war started in the school provoked by inaction by the board.  Brad and the board might answer an email with sympathies.  But they won’t change the behavior, ever, because they work and live off the system itself.  And they like the results a lot more than they like your kids. That’s why nothing ever happens and why school boards will continue to not listen to concerned parents and will continue to lay down and lick the feet of the corrupt teacher unions without ever a challenge.

Public Schools Should Be Prosecuted: Examples of school board members advocating liberal destruction

Public Schools are Dangerous Places

It is great to see more and more parents speaking out about what happens in their public schools.  Early this past week, I provided some stories about my home district of Lakota who expressed themselves over transgender policies that are part of the teacher union progressive political platform.  Then, the mom from Georgia unleashed on her school board an excellent speech about removing the mask mandates.  The video went viral and brought a lot of attention to the core problem; public schools are not our friends.  They are not places of sanctuary and learning centers of intelligence.  They are progressive re-education centers that intend for your children to be reprogramed. Government schools plan to reprogram our children. Your society has produced a hopeful lifeform growing up in a healthy community. Public schools want to destroy them into a collective goo of liberalism and dangerous thinking that will destroy our nation from within. They should all be prosecuted for their active role in that corruption.  It’s one thing if these school board members didn’t know better and were just well-intentioned malcontents.  But there is too much evidence, and it goes on far too often in virtually every public school in our government education system for it to be an accident.  The destruction is purposeful.  They intend what they do, and that makes it criminal rather than just innocent stupidity. 

The mom from Georgia who unleashed her fury with her school board there had a good point.  School board members may be frustrated that these young moms are grandstanding in their public speaking forums. I’ve known enough school board members from all over the place to know that school board members don’t come into their roles as corrupt activists for liberal causes.  They seek election for those boards to help educate children and play a role in the goodness of their communities as they understand those roles in a “liberal” society.  Most of us have been taught that public education is the first ingredient to a successful life and that children must at least stay in school to have a shot at life.  That leaves a community member seeking importance well-defined criteria for doing something meaningful.  And it’s not easy to be a school board member.  Management is complicated and often not very rewarding. Most of the time, especially in a group setting, you leave at the end of a meeting not getting everything you want.  An elected body expects disputes with other school board members at the meetings.  But it’s hard to disagree with someone you’ve spent a lot of time with, and quickly friendships form. Peer pressure persists. Often, the platform a school board member ran on to get elected gets forgotten and is replaced by state mandates and teacher’s union expectations for progressive causes.  And they end up being consumed by the system.

A couple of school board members from my district of Lakota, Julie Shaffer and Brad Lovell, are excellent examples of this problem.  I know both of them from the beginning and am pretty sure they meant well.  But in the vacancy of intelligence that should come with any leadership position, they have sought to cover their lack of ability with the national trend of radical leftism and masking it with a façade of caring for the district’s children in all the ways that are typical of Democrat politics.  They profess to the voters that they are nonpartisan, that politics does not play a role in their decision-making process.  But clearly, Julie’s role has always been appeasement of the teacher’s union as a radical mad mom seeking to throw resources at children rather than the hard work of leadership.  I debated Julie Shaffer on WLW radio many years ago, and her pro-education views were significantly left-leaning, and she came apart fast while on the air.  Recently she has been the advocating voice that has pushed the transgender agenda at Lakota.  She didn’t have to, but she went out of her way to put her name on the controversial proposal.  Lakota is in a very conservative area, so her actions do not represent the community that elected her.  She argues that politics did not play a role in her decision, but the evidence says otherwise.  So when a school board member knowingly does something harmful to children, such as adopting a liberal agenda that looks to be destructive to the education position of a public school, isn’t that a prosecutable offense?  If you knew about a murder that was planned and you didn’t say anything, isn’t that still a prosecutable occasion?  You bet it is, and she is guilty of these accidents.  Knowing her, she knew what the transgender policy would do, but she did it anyway, to hell with what people thought. When pressed on the matter, she claims a lack of political partisanship and insists that what she is doing is for the good of all children.

Then there is Brad Lovell, a school board member who used to be a school administrator and is married to a current administrator who makes decisions as a couple who profits a great deal off the public education system itself.  The biggest problem with him is that he is tone-deaf to anything that might disrupt the education structure, making it very difficult to have complex opinions about anything.  Supposedly his conflict of interest is legal in being married as a member of the board to an active employee, but his actions show the real problem. He has shown no resistance to budget concerns and is always quick to desire to go to the public for more money.  He would be well at home in the Joe Biden administration of deficit spending, and we can understand why.  As teacher contracts continue to escalate in cost, administrators rise too in cost and make it a very lucrative scam for him as a school board member.  He is clearly in the role for the social status it provides him.  He has no interest in going against the political tide of transgender politics or taking a stand against Critical Race Theory.  And in that neglect, he is responsible for the minds that time will prove to erode under the weight of liberalism.  Rather than put community concerns over these matters first, he instead set his needs for income indirectly through his wife as a priority, which is why many of the parents of Lakota are becoming more and more frustrated.  He doesn’t want to rock the boat because that’s his life through his wife.  But they do; they want someone to care about these issues and to do something about them.

Those are just a few local examples, but every school district could tell the same story, leaving parents frustrated.  Rather than listen to the Georgia mom who pleaded with the school board to remove a mask mandate from her child, the committee instead follows the liberal agenda, blames the CDC for the decision, and claims they have no power to do anything about it. They have done the same thing at Lakota, to limit the number of parents who can come to the board meetings and talk; they have used the excuse of social distancing to restrict attendance, citing that it is Governor DeWine’s orders they are following.  Because school board positions are unpaid and pretty unsatisfactory otherwise, it doesn’t bring much passion for reform is needed to manage the district.  Instead, they follow the liberal plan that comes with all public schools and sign their name without taking any responsibility for what happens.  And in that way, for the many little lies they must tell while doing so, public schools should be prosecuted for the harm they bring community members for knowing lies they commit for political power instead of what’s suitable for children.  And it’s time to get all that to an end, for our own sake.

Lakota Parents Stand up to Transsexual Activism: Finally parents are making their voices heard to save their children from public school

It was a remarkable thing to see for a change; angry parents from my home district of Lakota showed up at the mid-April school board meeting and let it be known what they thought of the transsexual policies advocated by the members of the board.   Their concerns about Critical Race Theory were another topic that is now all the rage in public schools.  It was much of this lunacy being given directly to teachers of all public schools in by the Ohio Department of Education. So it’s not fringe actions by radical leftist groups, the radical leftist groups are now mainstream and in the government, and they educate our kids.  And several of the Lakota school board members in my community have been lockstep in support of the government push for diversity training in public schools making racism the central issue of our education of children.  That may sound fair and balanced to the helicopter parents who fly their kids into the government schools for the free babysitting services that are very much part of this scam of political insurgency. Lakota’s transsexual policies attempted to take the lead on what has been an outright attack on the efficacy and future of all children attending. Parents in my community are finally starting to stick up for themselves.

As I said in the video above, Lakota, the public school in my neighborhood, is a good baseline for what is happening nationally with public education issues. It’s a wealthy district with a budget, what the labor unions consider the best teachers money can buy, and parents who sincerely care what is going on with their kids.  Likely more than average, there are two-parent homes in Lakota, and it votes heavily Republican.  However, the public elected the school board in the typical way that labor unions put their people in power to protect themselves from the outside world.  And those school board members, specifically names like Brad Lovell, Julie Shaffer, and Kelly Casper, have gone out of their way to endorse these liberal policies, especially the transgender elements.  The community indeed wasn’t screaming for it. It’s an extensive district and for the most part, considering the massive population of over 100,000 people in a county of 400,000, everyone stays pretty well behaved.  Delinquent children are an anomaly, they certainly aren’t familiar, and because of the two-parent homes, the sexual issues are much less an issue than in other places around the country.  There are more guns in the school district of Lakota, for instance, than there are in some states, but there is very little violence.  The newspapers have to work hard to find any real controversy to report.  That makes Lakota an excellent place to start to understand the massive activism that is threatening our children.  If it’s evident in my community, you can bet it’s every bit as bad in yours, or worse. 

The Lakota school board has forgotten who they represent.  As mentioned in the accompanying video on this site of the actual meeting where the parents lined up under social distancing rules to speak at the public portion of the meeting, school board members aren’t paid for their work.  They do it as representatives of the community to make sure the massive $200 million-plus budget taken from property owners gets where it needs to go for the sake of the kids’ education.  However, all the members except for Lynda O’Conner out of the five officials voting are leaning toward the far left mandates coming out of the state, which ultimately comes out of the Ohio Education Association, the teacher’s union, which shapes a lot of what happens in public education as a radical progressive group.  They have chosen to make the decisions on transgender policy that they have, which has many parents terrified for their children’s lives, correctly.  I would argue that I know this school board and that these parental complaints will fall on deaf ears.  But it’s good to bring them up in public anyway and take the complaints several steps further than their little 3-minute spots in the board meetings.  These issues are far too complicated to be capped off under the Lakota management structure, and the urgency for the kids’ sake is nothing short of dire. So even if the school board doesn’t get it, it’s a fight worth having.  As a community, we could always elect new school board members.  But the discussion needs to happen in a front and center kind of way.

I used to do hundreds of articles on my blog site here about specifically Lakota challenges, but I have readers in most of the major countries.  I have been covering overreaching national and international issues now, but that doesn’t mean that local issues aren’t necessary for the scheme of things.  For Lakota, what is happening in my backyard is happening in yours as well; it’s worth mentioning what’s happening so that you, the reader, can take similar actions on your own.  However, for my newer readers catching up to the past, I have a long history with the Lakota school system.  My warnings were that this day would arrive.  I started formally just arguing the merits of the tax increases against property owners, and I was a frequent guest on talk radio and our television news.  I gave speeches all over the place and met with concerned parents all over Ohio, so I understand well how concerned parents are and can be out there.  But the more work I did in looking into the various progressive issues, the angrier I became because it was evident that public education was headed in this direction. They wanted our kids, and they desired as progressive activists and outright communists working in public education to ruin the minds of our children so that when they grew up, they’d become activist voters, and that is where we find ourselves today. 

However, public school activists never plan for the parents to speak up for themselves.  They expect them to drop their kids off at the government schools and rush off to Starbucks before gossiping and becoming distracted by a thousand other things. Simultaneously, the teachers attack the children’s foundations with sexualized educations and race relation discussions. School distracts them from the elements they should be learning, such as how to grow into a critical thinking adult and how to read.  Modern educators want kids as dumb and witless as possible so that they will be easy to control in the future and for methods that we are now seeing openly on the news.  None of this is new, but what is new is that a group of parents stuck together and showed up to speak out against it.  They tried to communicate with their school board, which is part of the problem and is destined to blow them off.  But it won’t end there.  Challenges to the school board are bound to happen in the upcoming elections. The state of Ohio is taking notice, and some powerful Republican politicians are just as upset about this attack on our country.  That creates an atmosphere that has some potential for real reform.  And if it’s happening in Lakota, it’s happening in other places as well, and that is something to celebrate.
