Why Friday the 13th is So Scary: The FBI attacks Mike Lindell at a Hardees Drive-thru

Did you know that the Knight’s Templars invented checks because they controlled so much centralized banking in Europe during the early 14th Century that they could cover the cost of an issue in one region that needed to be cashed in another? They invented the concept of the kind of banking we think of today. Their power and influence had benefited the King of France and the Pope at the time, until they realized that the Knight’s Templars had gained too much power and that they were a threat that needed to be crushed. So on Friday the 13th, 1307, the Pope and the King of France conspired to arrest and torture members of the Knight’s Templers, confiscate their wealth, and destroy the order in one of the most massive transfers of wealth ever to occur in a civilized society.   That is also why, even today, we look at Friday the 13th with dread because it is remembered as an “unlucky day” because of what the Catholic Church did to the Templers to destroy the order. Many Knight’s Templars fled France and Spain due to this action. They took their movement underground hiding in northern England and Scotland and resurrected themselves as the freemasonry movement. This is also why there is much fear regarding secret societies operating in the background of our political order. In a lot of ways, they had to. The Knight’s Templars had picked up a lot of foreign ideas while Crusading in the Holy Land and had become obsessed with the rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon, and they were beginning to work a global order that would allow that process to occur, which was why the state of Israel was created at the end of World War II. History teaches us that nothing we see today is new but rather just the recurrence of the same mistakes that have always driven elements of civilization.

So it is in that context that we must view the attacks by the Biden administration on the MAGA movement. It’s also time for those late to the party to admit to massive amounts of election fraud in the 2020 election. Democrats can only win if they cheat because there simply aren’t enough Americans who are liberal to keep them in power, and it’s been that way for a long time. While it’s true that the freemasonry movement started in America as a kind of New Atlantis, according to Roger Bacon’s book that was so popularly received in Masonic circles, the movement itself became much more liberalized and Marxist during the 19th Century. It used the works of Karl Marx, who was a Mason, to topple capitalist governments around Europe, and Russia, then to spread down into China to bring about their new Liberal World Order and essentially control the world through centralized banking, centralized global government, and an oriental religion that started in Egypt to be used around the world for all the purposes we are seeing today. Of course, they committed election fraud, of course, they gained control of our media culture, and of course, they have paid off enough politicians to allow them to make these massive power grabs. And of course, they wanted to get rid of Trump and put in their puppet president Biden so that their Liberal World Order, as articulated in Germany yet again as many of these global conquest governments have in the past, this time through Klaus Schwab through the World Economic Forum, could have their Great Reset. 

Those tables have been turned just like the destruction of the Knight’s Templars before. The Templars went underground to consolidate their power and then use it to take over all of Europe, then the world for all the goals they had established during the Crusades. And they are still at it. There are freemasonry temples in just about every community in America. I was just in St. Ignace, Michigan, a pretty small town on the lakeside of the Great Lake Huron, and guess what? There was a large Masonic Lodge there, one of the most significant structures in the little town. It’s not until the higher degree of membership for initiates that they discover the real story and have to act out the killing of the Solomon Temple architect, Hiram Abiff. The lower degrees of freemasonry do many Christian-feeling community work like the Shriners and conduct a brotherhood that looks Christ-like.  But the real motives are very Old Testament and eastern in religious viewpoint, with a deliberate Gnostic outlook that is more Egyptian than western in nature. And their goal is not to advance the western world of Greek and Roman understanding but to resurrect ancient religions pre-dating even Egypt by the time it’s all said and done. So, of course, that order today shown to us in the practices of globalism is going to attack with viciousness against defenders of western capitalism for everything they have in them. That is how the Never Trumpers and the liberals of the modern world have joined together to destroy this MAGA threat to everything they have worked for over the preceding centuries. They are out for blood, as they always have been, and the threat of MAGA to them is very real, just as real as that famous date of Friday the 13th. They remember it well and plan to strike back this time before an organized government can do it to them again.  When Mike Lindell was accosted by the FBI in the drive-thru of a Hardees just to essentially steal his phone and gain intel on how to destroy him because he was challenging the last election, the sinister nature of their preservation movement was clear. The FBI just raided President Trump’s home, marched Steve Bannon around in handcuffs, and delivered papers to 35 other MAGA leaders across the country. They were doing to MAGA what the King of France had done to the Templars, but this time they would be the aggressors, not so much operating out of the shadows, as they have for centuries, but out in the open, not caring who would see them. The FBI no longer cares if people know what they are really about, preserving the Liberal World Order as it has been built through modern freemasonry, now wearing the mask of the World Economic Forum.   The anti-MAGA forces in the Washington D.C. swamp are not for America. They are all about destroying it and building a global network for which they control. They don’t care about the American Constitution.   They abandon their efforts at a New Atlantis long ago. They have used America to instill their Liberal World Order in every country in the world. They have empowered China as the next financial market. They are trying hard to do.

No, It’s Not Time to Move On from Trump: Nobody has unified American politics more, and that’s why “they” hate him so much

To make something very clear, I have heard from numerous Republicans on the matter, many of whom I respect a lot, that it is time to move on from Trump and start getting behind someone like DeSantis for 2024. They reason that Trump is in the news every day and that he is a distraction from the politics at hand. If we moved away from Trump, we could move away from all the negative news coverage but still get a good executive in the White House who gets it. After all, sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard was a good, bold move to protest the open border policies of the Chinese-bought Biden administration. It was a very Trump-like thing to do. Yet, DeSantis doesn’t come with all the negative daily news splashes, especially with the DOJ pressing down to abuse their authority and indict Trump on fake charges of anything just to keep him from running again in 2024. All this is a distraction dividing the country in painful ways, and many Republicans just want it all to stop. They hope that if they sacrifice Trump to the media gods that perhaps they will then leave DeSantis alone, or whoever fills in that massive political void of the “Trump” character, and we can all live happily ever after again. I’ll remind people that I warned about how things would be going into the Midterms. The Democrats have lied, cheated, and stolen power because they desire to abuse that power for power’s sake, and they won’t give it up easily. They have created an FBI in the intelligence community, a vital arm of the Liberal World Order, and they are playing for blood. And their constant attacks on Trump are to protect their long-established plans for destroying American sovereignty and to redistribute everything into the United Nations-controlled New World Order. If you think you have seen bad now, wait until the oil from the strategic oil reserves is gone. They are being depleted as we speak, and the lower gas prices are meant to borrow time until after the Midterms to trick voters into voting for some Democrats. 

And what they fear most is the kind of influence that Trump recently had over the Pennsylvania rally, then the Ohio event to pump up J.D. Vance. I have watched a lot of Trump rallies, and his event in Pennsylvania was undoubtedly one of his best. Very few people in the world could do what Trump has done, to become independently wealthy with a family business, not connected to all kinds of shady characters around the world. Or a personality who has dominated the media in the way Trump has over the years, writing so many best-selling books, creating top-rated television shows, and having a social persona that is so magnetic that people will show up to hear him speak without a rock band to accompany him. People show up at these rallies to repeatedly listen to the same speech, and they wait many hours beforehand just to see him. No other political figures can do that anywhere in the world. And here we have this magnificent person at the height of his powers who wants to apply them to the Republican Party. I’m all for that and happy to have Trump on the team. But then, what Trump has now mastered late in life is the art of public speaking, the ability to stand in front of a crowd for two hours and talk, talk, talk in such entertaining ways that people never want it to end. The people who are after Trump are terrified of these relationships that Trump has with the public. They know the truth about the 2020 election. They know what they did to conceal the steal sponsored by the American intelligence agencies to remove an elected president from power. Their actions tell us everything we need to know about who was guilty of the biggest crime in human history. Instead of physically killing Trump, as they might have done with Kennedy or some other obstinate political figure, they are attempting to create a police state like they have in different places and sell it to the public by destroying Trump with it. They hope that it will stick with our culture in the aftermath. 

What Trump has done that is the most valuable attribute is that he has truly unified the country in ways nobody realized beforehand that it could be. Trump was a former Democrat, as were Dr. Oz, Keri Lake, and several other characters who the MAGA movement has now inspired. Suppose you look at all the kinds of people who are getting elected into MAGA roles. In that case, whether it be for a senate seat, a congressional seat, or a governor, there are more women, more people of color, and more people from other nationalities who are becoming part of the MAGA movement that no longer are the stuffy white guy executive who doesn’t hire women attributable to the Republican Party. Trump has created the most diverse party to ever represent people politically in world history. That is precisely why the established order hates him so much and dedicates so much of its time trying to destroy him. Their only defense is to make so much noise about Trump that perhaps people might abandon him just for the possibility of peace. That is the nature of war, to wear out your opponent and to secure a victory. And for many Republicans, the constant barrage from the media and the intelligence community has made them want to surrender to those forces. 

But Trump isn’t done politically yet. There is a lot more that needs to be done, but we clearly are not the same world as we were in 2015 when Trump and his wife came down the escalator in Trump Tower for their big announcement speech. All these elements were there, but we didn’t talk about them. We thought everything politically was on the up and up; we didn’t know how radical the FBI was in favor of Democrats, and we didn’t realize just how complicit the media was with the Liberal World Order. And we might have suspected election fraud at times. Still, we had no clue that so many forces had their hands in our cookie jar and were openly conspiring to put one political party in power in America for their own benefit and how much they wanted to destroy the other. They were the creators of the “uniparty,” a mixture of Republicans and Democrats who get very rich while in office as a kind of payoff to create legislation that harms America and redistributes our wealth to other countries in the name of globalism. Politicians like Mitch McConnell, for example. But Trump even made “China Mitch” a good guy by holding firm to get a good Supreme Court. When it comes to Trump, there are many great things to consider. But most of all is, the reason they attack him so viciously, and that is because they have nothing else. Through their hatred, we have learned much about our election system’s political forces. And it might be ugly, but it always was.   Yet now we can identify it; we have seen it attempt to defend itself. And the failures of the Liberal World Order are currently on the ballot in ways they never intended, and it’s because of Trump and the pressure he brings that has revealed it so spectacularly, perhaps for the first time ever.

My Vacation from Slow People: The need for speed is a very real thing, and is uniquely American

For purely selfish reasons, I have spent much more time shooting in Fast Draw competitions during the summer of 2022. I’ve always done competitions like this, but this year I went to all the Ohio Fast Draw events and traveled a lot more than usual to competitive events giving myself a much-needed vacation. The question that has come at me is why I was running myself ragged with all the events. There are a lot of easier things to do in life than competing with guns in stressful and very fast matches where things are measured in such small increments. Shooting and hitting a target in under half a second, or at nearly a quarter of a second as I typically do, isn’t what many people consider relaxing. But believe me, in my life, it is. That kind of speed and free flow of pure energy is a real benefit in ways that are hard to explain, which I’ve tried when people have asked, scratching their heads. But after a weekend shoot over Labor Day where I could shoot competitively with some really great shooters and the event was fast and very competent, I found myself grateful for the experience and the summation of all the other summer shoots. I was taking some of my own advice from my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, and I’m very glad I did. Fast Draw is the fastest sport in the world, and when you have to deal with many hundreds of people per week, sometimes thousands, the chance to stand in front of a target and just let everything rip forth is wonderful.

The truth is that people are slow; they spend much of their lives looking for reasons not to do things, so when you find yourself dealing with many people, all who are doing their best to do very little, it can be very frustrating. And the world, after Covid, as a result of Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset and the intrusive actions of Bill Gates, making the governments of the world dance by the strings they control like wood-carved marionettes, has only become slower. Bureaucrats have one purpose in life: to make things go slower. Everyone in the world these days seems fully committed to going as slow as they can and to lobby for things to be slower and slower. You can see the difference in a typical drive-thru window; things have slowed down at McDonald’s and Wendy’s fast food restaurants due to a post-Covid world. The government has told employees they can take off all they want and still get paid. Doctors have become everyone’s parents and intercede when those mean old employers expect work performance for the pay they issue. It has become a real mess of incompetence that is the net result of the Biden administration’s attitude toward work, labor, and globalism, which has sucked the air out of the ambition of American effort in truly disgusting ways. And I have been getting angrier and angrier the more I deal with people causing me several times during the year of 2022 to consider just packing everything up, telling everyone to go to hell, and going to a mountaintop with all my books and saying, “peace out.” 

I live a very fast life; I always have. I love speed because the quicker you can do things, the more you get to do in life. So it is hard for me to slow down long enough to go to see medical people because time is always scheduled to their convenience, not yours. I hate going to the BMV for that very reason. It’s such a slow process. I have even been very frustrated with one of my favorite things, going to Kings Island on Friday nights after a busy professional week, because things have really slowed down there as well. My wife and I like to ride roller coasters to blow off steam. I get time to think about things while we wait in line, and of course, roller coasters are nice and fast. But the employees have been horrible this year, worse than at any other time in my life; they are slow, dim-witted, almost representatives of a zombie apocalypse. I don’t think that the people changed, but we lost IQ points during Covid, and the government has crippled young people into thinking in a lazy fashion that makes them barely functional. So even going to Kings Island to relax on roller coasters has not been as fulfilling as it normally is. I’ve never liked the European attitude toward work, which you can clearly see anytime you go to London, Paris, or the Netherlands; they don’t like the American expectation to have everything fast; they like to take their time and smell the roses as they say. But I find all that slowness disgusting. And with Covid and the Biden administration, those types of slow people have been empowered, and the more you deal with people, the more of that attitude you tend to interact with. And for me, it has been real torture. 

So that brings us back to Cowboy Fast Draw and competitive events. All the people in that sport get it. They understand the need for speed and the beauty of unleashing energy and flowing toward an objective as quickly as possible. And spending more time with those kinds of people has been truly wonderful. I can’t say that I will always be able to shoot in those competitive events as much as I did this year. What I did was probably excessive, but it benefited me wonderfully. But, I have been gone a lot. I am one who does not do well in traffic jams. I don’t like to get stuck under any conditions waiting for much of anything. When I get out of a traffic jam and back into the country where roads are wide open, I like to drive as fast as I can without people in my way to slow me down. And that’s how I am with most people. I like to pack a lifetime into a typical day, so when you end up dealing with people who would rather be asleep and multiply that by 100 or 200 people, it can be very frustrating. But I healed much of that this summer and accomplished many of my personal goals for shooting. I won a lot of events which made me happy. It was consistent even under great duress at times, so I learned a lot of good things in doing these events. But the ability to remove all the noise from my life and just let loose all the speed I can muster on something with intense focus has been wonderful. It has restored me some patience in dealing with a much slower world that needs motivation to go faster and be more competent. That is, after all, one of my core values to others, and when I get to the point where I don’t want to do it anymore, a lot of people end up suffering. So the Fast Draw events have been significant; I have been doing them almost every weekend and traveled to many places to participate in them with many like-minded people. And I can’t recommend Fast Draw as a sport enough, for all the reasons stated and more. Speed is great. Slowness is for the lazy.

The Importance of Understanding History: How secret societies control the world with superstition and fear

Most people don’t know that if you look at a street map of Sandusky, Ohio, that it clearly shows the emblem of Freemasonry, establishing that Masons built the layout of the small town on the lakefront of Lake Erie in accordance with their beliefs.  So are vast spans of London, Paris, and Washington D.C., where city streets and monuments are lined up to the orientation of star alignments considered by astrology to be important.  People who don’t know history would have no point of reference to understand forces that are always working in the background to control their lives in some way, just as those same forces have all through history.  A clear understanding of history, especially ancient history, events that occurred before Egyptian society, which the Masons were obsessed with, those of the Indus Valley, Sumerian civilization, etc., will show that all mankind moves through the Vico Cycle routinely and predictably.  And by understanding those cycles, you can then predict what will happen in the future and how human beings will behave while under pressure and duress.  That is, after all, what the great book by James Joyce, Finnegans Wake, intended was to provide a kind of skeleton key to all civilization so that each time it went through a Vico Cycle (theocracy, aristocracy, democracy, then anarchy) over and over again, there would be some kind of roadmap to get society started again.  But like the high priest of some ancient religions, even in modern politics, there is a desire to show mastery over communication with supernatural forces and give them power over others in the many books of history that have been written or are waiting to be written.  Thus, you have secret societies operating in the background showing the world they have a mastery of mystery with star alignments or a connection to some ancient religion.  And if you don’t know your history, you might think they are geniuses instead of the con artists they really are. 

Once you have an excellent grasp of history, and I’m not talking about the stuff they want you to know, like the dates and events of World War II, or the highlights of the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, or the events of the Renaissance, an understanding of that Vico Cycle provides a much clearer understanding of what our future holds.  In that way, it was predictable what was to come with Covid and the Desecrators of Davos attempts at a Great Reset for the entire world.  A little search of my articles when we first learned about Covid coming out of China will show that I knew it was a scam from day one and reported it that way.  Of course, the doctors in the medical profession were trying to become the latest high priests in communication with the gods to sell us on their awesome power to control life and death itself.  It wasn’t a surprise that Klaus Schwab and his World Economic Forum centered around Germany were trying to take over the world just as they did with Hitler, Nietzsche, Karl Marx, and many other characters and madmen from history have attempted from that region of the world.  Now it was the god of Climate Change that they were using, just as Masons had used Isis from Egyptian culture to connect themselves in the minds of the many to the mysterious past of a culture that had built the pyramids or constructed King Solomon’s Temple, and were dedicated to returning that temple to greatness once again, as prophecy demanded.  Covid was always a power grab and nothing more, and if people knew their history, it would not be such a shock and mystery to them.

Only by knowing ancient history can anybody get a good scope on the scale of human endeavor, and understand the motives of those who are evil, and separate those intentions from those who want to do good.  Most people don’t see what they do as evil; everyone thinks they do what they do for good reasons if only people understood the big picture.  But often, the big picture is concealed by those who want to rule the world because they require mankind to be stupid to sell their superstitions and sentiments to the masses as the latest craze in logic.  I have never seen any secret societies, including the Illuminati, coming again out of Germany as hostile or maniacal.  Understanding history will show that their beliefs and intentions are as scary as reading through the latest Farmer’s Almanac or reading a daily horoscope.  The belief that the “gods” are controlling our every move and that their intentions are revealed in the “stars” makes it so that society will then trust the idiots who profess to read those stars.  It’s the shadow on the wall of Plato’s metaphor over and over again, and usually, there are enough people in any given society who are too lazy to call them on the scam.  They want to believe that somebody is in charge because they don’t want to be.  Whether that someone is a god, or a religious figure, or a politician.  People generally are too lazy to find things out for themselves, making their lives a perpetual prison to the forces of darkness who have ruled history from its written inception. 

Understanding history and how people who want to control you have distributed selected information in ways that tell the narrative from a vantage point that gives them the psychological advantage is the only way to live a free life truly.  I would go so far as to say that our understanding of ancient history is not nearly good enough.  I do not see ancient Egypt as all that ancient, but rather think it was only the latest in a long line of societies that rose and fell way before we have any archaeological record.  Hidden under the ground at some layer are the remains of an even more advanced civilization; after all, it was Egypt who considered the ten kingdoms of Atlantis to be ancient to them.  But discovering those cultures isn’t nearly as important as understanding why they always fail and continue over and over to start their life cycles again and again.  And by understanding that failure mode, we should be able to correct it now.  When I look at the MAGA movement with Trump as the spokesman, that is what I see.  Mankind is saying no to the mistakes of the past and to the losers who want to rule the world through smokescreens and religious superstitions connected to ancient cultures and astrology.  The political movements that are rising up out of populism now, in our current time, are answers to the many past mistakes, which is exciting to watch.  Of course, the forces that have always caused failure in the world will not be happy about this change.  They want a predictable outcome even if it means complete social failure because they are just playing their part in the Vico Cycle of history, as outlined in the great book Finnegans Wake.  Their minds are already on the destruction of the earth and everything on it so they can play their part in the Great Reset, not as it is proposed today, but has been presented from the beginning of time.  Knowing the history, it becomes quite evident that what is happening now, worldwide with the MAGA movement, is something special and has a real opportunity to break that cycle of destruction once and for all, for perhaps the first time…………………ever.

The Seven Liberal Arts: By teaching people to think inside a box, the criminals could get away with committing the real crimes outside it

One thing that is very obvious after Covid and the election fraud problems from the 2020 election is that we see that there are people like Bill Gates, George Soros, Klaus Schwab, and many other maniacal characters who are willing to take advantage of people as the book How to Lie with Statistics establishes. When you control the measure people use to apply to the world around them, you ultimately contain what they think and do. Most of the world was defenseless to see what a very small few of the controlling elite were doing, criminally, because their educations in life prevented them from seeing the big picture. I do not doubt that from a medieval perspective, where few people could even read the Bible, the Seven Liberal Arts that Plato envisioned, and the Freemasonry movement, which was one of the first genuinely global organizations in the history of the world, seemed like a great idea. By teaching people in public education grammar, logic, rhetoric, arithmetic, astronomy, music, and geometry, Masons coming out of Europe thought that they could create a utopia for people to live in and everything would be fantastic. And when John Dewey and his progressive, Marxist friends, inspired by books like Looking Backward and other socialist utopia concepts, breathed to life behind Freemasonry, they thought they were doing a good thing. And for more than a century now in the United States, we have treated education around those seven liberal arts, with physical fitness now added to the mix and merging some of the other topics to keep the number at seven, as something sacred, than the actuality of the danger they always were. Because of the limits of a liberal education, people were defenseless in 2020 to properly deal with the aggressive political tactics of the Liberal World Order, which sought openly to take advantage of those limits and make a move to control all the political mechanisms of mankind.

I’ve never thought our education system, from pre-K to K through 12, or college and the post-graduate courses were enough for a properly balanced mind. I would suggest that the free education governments provide people is worth as much as you pay; free means its garbage. Aside from the ridiculous social concept of stealing the money for this monstrosity from property owners, a Marxist concept if there ever was one by Dewey and the gang of late 19th century progressives, the idea of a free education looks noble on paper. Yet, it has created drones of people unable to think for themselves. It has opened the door for tyrants, who know precisely how to cheat the system they created to serve the Liberal World Order, to rule over the masses based on the limits of their educations. People have been purposely taught to be stupid by those who want to rule the world. That is a concept that Plato never worked out in his Republic, and his student, Aristotle, was much keener on. Intelligence has to fight for its right to survive because there will always be aggressors who want to take advantage of the limits a society proposes to the world, based on everyone knowing essentially the same thing. Once you know the limits of a person’s understanding, you can do as Bill Gates does, and that’s Lie with Statistics. Control the information people see, so they never get the big picture because they don’t have the mind to see it.

I’ve been thinking about this problem for many decades, really, since I read the great book by Robert James Waller, The Bridges of Madison County, a region of the country I was able to visit last year. And in those vast fields of Iowa, while sipping a Mello Yello in the early morning mist and looking west before the rest of my family awoke for the day, I was thinking about fashion and who decides what fashions will be popular, as the author of that book contemplated quite effectively. Who decides that blue jeans will be the fashion people will wear? Or what haircuts will people like? Or even what kinds of music will shape our society? When you start asking those kinds of questions, it all points back to the Masonic Seven Liberal Arts limits and how people who understand how to exploit what people know by looking like some mysterious high priest of esoteric knowledge suddenly tell people that mullets are coming back in style. It has been interesting over this last year to watch people come out of Covid, and suddenly, people are questioning the validity of their public education in ways they never have before, just as that Liberal World Order is trying to sell the world on the new religion of climate change and why gas prices must be high because of a war with Ukraine and that people need to give up their gas-powered cars in favor of an electric one that California can’t even support on their weak, self-imposed power grid. With people starting to educate themselves outside of what the Seven Liberal Arts instructed them, they are beginning to gain the ability to call BS on what they are being told by the media, also controlled by the limits of the Seven Liberal Arts, because they all had the identical educations and the limitations that went with them. 

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the whole plan was sinister from the start. I think the Masons, Greek, Egyptian, and Atlantian cultures that have created the foundations of the Seven Liberal Arts concept had good intentions. But as we know, the path to Hell is always paved with good intentions, and there were plenty of crazy, evil people who would seek to take advantage of the limits of liberal education in public schools for their own version of world domination. By teaching people to think in a box, and the crimes of humanity being conducted outside the box, then most of mankind would be vulnerable to those crimes because they would never see them coming or going. They would only feel the effects, which was essentially how the crime of Covid was perpetrated upon the entire earth to commit election fraud in the United States by hostile actors hiding in the shadows for a global overthrow and to solidify the power of the Liberal World Order, the Administrative State of perpetual government expansion. They never thought they would get caught because they assumed people had been taught not to see the crime. But with mass media and decentralized education going beyond the Seven Liberal Arts, there were enough people who could think outside of the box to disrupt what was going on inside that box that mass society was taught to stay inside. And the criminals were exposed and awaiting punishment. But first, people had to see for themselves what had been attempted, which is where we are today. Yet, it doesn’t take the edge off the fact that very few attempted the crimes to rule the great many. Bill Gates was one of them; he attempted to Lie with Statistics to take advantage of the limits of the Several Liberal Arts and impose on the world his new religion of Climate Change and all the evils that went with it. So long as people were as dumb as their liberal public educations had taught them to be, people might have gotten away with it. But of course, they didn’t.

Government Schools are All About the Employees: The kids are used as a means to expand easy jobs and administrative nonsense

Everyone wants to know what’s going on with Lakota schools and why there has not been any mainstream news regarding the very serious allegation against the public school administration. Given the nature of the offense, as indicated in the official police report from the Butler County Sheriff’s Department, many were expecting at least an arrest or a leave of absence. But there has been nothing but an acknowledgment of documents, one from the police indicating that on August 8th, 2022, the complainant responded to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office to report that she had received and compiled information from a third party of potential criminal wrongdoing by the suspect regarding juveniles. Then there is a short email from the president of the Lakota School Board speaking on behalf of the entire Board, saying, ” Ms. (former candidate for Lakota school board), The Board has reviewed your email and attachments. The safety and security of the district’s students is the Board’s highest priority. As noted in your email, this issue has already been escalated to law enforcement and is now in the capable hands of the Butler County Sheriff’s Office. When the Sheriff’s Office concludes its investigation, the Board will review its findings and determine if any further action is warranted. On behalf of the Board. ”  I thought all that pretty interesting, especially after the press conference Sheriff Jones held recently stating that he was investigating wrongdoing in the direction of Ohio Representative Thomas Hall, because years ago, when he was a trustee for Madison Township, there were questions as to whether or not he recused himself on Fire Department matters since his father was the Fire Chief. As discussed before, Thomas sought legal advice on when to recuse himself and when not to, so he was clean. But, with a Sheriff talking tough like that, you would think that a Lakota school administrator with an ex-wife putting in writing some really charged content would inspire more action on behalf of the “safety” of all. But after a month of tranquil activity on the matter from the administrative perspective, there hasn’t been anything to satisfy people’s fears.

I was wondering myself, knowing all the characters involved. When I first saw the material, I could have published it and beat the rest of the media to a really salacious story. But I was more concerned about the criminal side of the story and wanted to know how much some of the people in charge cared about what was happening in the school. Unfortunately, we have our answer, and it’s one I thought we would have from the beginning. Over the years, I have witnessed too many of these stories to think anything else. But I thought it was worth a try. We trusted the system and hoped for a reasonable outcome. With a case like this, it would be expected to have at least a note from the Board to the parents, much like they have on other things in the past. I remember when someone left a threatening note in a bathroom during a levy campaign, and a lot of drama was made about it. Lakota always seems to send home notes to the parents, letting them know when something is wrong and that the administration is all over the issue so they won’t have to worry. But on this issue, they have been oddly silent. They might say that it’s purely political, the entire escapade. But then again, what hasn’t been political? The moment that new school board member Darbi Boddy was voted in as a new school board member, many board members and the administration have been trying to remove her in any technical way they could, using every excuse possible to make a media story out of her, to put pressure on her to resign. So why wouldn’t there be political opposition flowing in the opposite direction? They should expect it; they created that atmosphere. 

The truth is that all public schools, Lakota being just one of them, are all about filling the needs of the employees. They could care less about the kids involved. This is the case today, and it has been the case over the many decades that I have been involved in these public school issues. Government schools like Lakota use children as a playground for the adults, making these schools some of the largest employers in the region. Yet they expect to never get in trouble for bad behavior. If what was happening at Lakota were happening at any large corporation, there would be, at a bare minimum, paid administrative leave while everyone sorted out the matter. There would be press conferences updating the taxpayers on what was being done to investigate the matter and assuring the public that good people were doing good work. I wanted to think differently of Lakota, knowing some people the way I do. I really didn’t think they would be willing to put up with bad behavior when they saw it and knew about it. Even if it was just the remnants of a bad marriage, when a personal life starts to impact the public life of someone, that is a factor in work performance that can be very negative. But there was just a case the other night where a person was caught regionally just downloading child porn, and the police were all over them with arrests and significant news coverage. Why, with this case, did everyone suddenly want to show a benefit of the doubt toward the evidence presented, even as crazy as much of that evidence has been? 

A Message from Lakota Local Schools May 5, 2022

Dear Lakota Staff, Parents and Guardians, The end of the school year is a time to celebrate our students and staff and all that we have achieved since August. This year, we have even more to celebrate as we have been able to lift our COVID protocols and return to a much more normal school experience for our students. It is unfortunate that, over recent weeks, instead of this being our focus, district leaders have been forced to respond to baseless allegations and escalating threatening behavior by an elected member of our school board.As a result of a school board member’s blatant disregard for policy and procedures that are in place to help ensure the safety of our students and staff and a productive learning environment, this morning, Lakota Local Schools was forced to issue a notice of trespassing to Mrs. Darbi Boddy. As such, Mrs. Boddy will no longer be allowed on district property without prior authorization and unless invited for official Board business.Yesterday morning, Mrs. Boddy violated Board Policy and Administrative Guidelines 9150 by visiting two schools without first notifying the building principal – a requirement of all visitors to our schools. Entering through the main offices, she then proceeded to ignore staff requests to remain there until the principals met her. Instead, she left the offices and proceeded to walk the hallways, violating safety protocols and causing a disruption in learning at both Lakota East High School and Liberty Early Childhood School. While some may question why such a seemingly steep action was taken against Mrs. Boddy, let me explain. We welcome our parents into our schools; we welcome our community into our schools; and we certainly welcome our school board members into our schools – as long as they follow safety procedures and policy. These are not difficult. They involve alerting building administrators of the interest in visiting and setting up a time that is convenient for all involved. Yesterday, this did not happen. This is also not the first time that Mrs. Boddy has ignored board policy, nor is it the first time she has disrupted learning in our schools. Our decision was not made lightly and was done in consultation with law enforcement. It is my hope that by sharing this information with you, I am able to stop rumors from circulating and reassure you of our commitment to safety. The safety of our students and staff is always my first priority and a responsibility I take very seriously. I will do everything I can to ensure that our students and staff feel safe, welcome and included when they walk through our doors.

Sincerely,

Matthew J. Miller
​​​​​​​Superintendent

Of course, we all know the answer, which is the painful part. Many people knew the answer from the beginning but didn’t want to believe it. I was very skeptical about everything. As things have transpired over the last month, it became an apparent human resource problem without consistent standards, which is a tremendous management problem. I didn’t care much about Lakota at the start of this process. My hope was that by electing better school board members, the proper management of the district’s largest government school might improve. I have seen complaints about her since Darbi Boddy was elected and sworn in because she’s a conservative. It has become grossly apparent that the only thing the teachers and administrators care about at Lakota is not the kids but their easy jobs with high pay rates. As bad as the accusations are in the police report, I know that there is far worse going on behind the scenes that nobody is even talking about because they are either scared or don’t trust anybody to say anything. Not even the police. With the kind of threats that have been tossed at this whistleblower occurs, the message is clear, don’t mess with the breadbasket and playground of the adults who work at the school. The community and the children of the community are there to serve them and them only. That’s not what they say, of course. But that’s the message they convey. To say I’m disappointed would be a misplaced description. I had optimistic hope that I might be wrong. Government schools are all about politics, liberal politics at that, and they waste money on a garbage product while they treat the place like their personal Tinder app. And the way the public employees behave is reprehensible. But why wouldn’t they be when management allows them to behave that way?

Climate Change is the New Huitzilopochtli: They want you numb and dumb to make the sacrifice easier for them

We’re not just fighting political parties worldwide that have different ideas about things. We are fighting the basic tenants of good and evil that have roots into the past many thousands of years, and that evil continues to resurrect itself through the various liberal movements of our modern times. But not since Moses came down out of Mt. Sinai with the Ten Commandments, which started mankind on a path toward self-government as opposed to the worship of many pagan gods, has this evil been so well defined. We see it today manifest as the Biden administration and their connection to globalism through the Desecrators of Davos. But just a quick trip to Mexico City, which was built upon the conquered Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, will give a clear look into that vast evil as it was revealed to the world in a much more literal sense for all of human history in the various cannibalism cults of human sacrifice that are attached to every city-state culture. Today we call the behavior of the city-states liberal in nature. But in previous times, before evil attempted to disguise itself from this new Judeo-Christian outlook on the world, the Aztecs and Mayas were quite literal representations of how evil worked in the world through the influence of pagan beliefs to sacrifice all human endeavors to their jealous and corrupt yearnings. You can still see much of Tenochtitlan all over the modern city and contemplate what went on there before Cortés came and wiped their culture out altogether, leaving behind only the name of Mexico to remember the culture of the blood-thirsty Aztecs that had a religion that was essentially a mass production facility of death. 

In the center of Tenochtitlan was a giant step pyramid, not unlike the pyramids from the rest of the world, all part of one global culture of sacrifice that, in many cases, predates modern written history. These cultures consumed hallucinogenic drugs and thought they were talking to gods from beyond the grave who needed appeasement through the mass death of fellow human beings. It wasn’t unusual for the Aztecs, led by Moctezuma, to kill many hundreds of people per nightly ritual. Most of those people came from surrounding conquered territories and would be put in fattening pens to make them more delicious to eat when the sacrifices would take place to the God of War, Huitzilopochtli, known otherwise as Hummingbird. Huitzilopochtli was pronounced (Wechilopchee) in the Aztec tongue. The belief was that if Hummingbird was happy, that he would grant them productive conquests of their enemies with supernatural aid. Once the human sacrifices were fat enough to eat, they would be marched up the pyramid to the top, where high priests would lay them out across a sacrificial slab and cut out their still beating heart with an obsidian knife. The heart would be cooked on a heated pedestal for the spiritual consumption of Hummingbird. Then the body of the victim would be cut up into pieces. The heads and torsos would be tossed down the pyramid’s steps to a maniacal crowd below, while the arms and legs would be put into a big pot and cooked as a stew for mass consumption. Although the movie Apocalypto by Mel Gibson covers this kind of ritual well from a Mayan point of view, if you want to see for yourself how these things were done, that is an excellent movie to watch. As brutal as the movie is, it doesn’t come close to showing just how terrible and evil these rituals were and how common they were in a pre-Christian world. 

Well, imagine being one of the people who had to march up that tall pyramid only to be killed at the top and having to watch the people in front of you by the hundreds be killed, to hear their screams of terror, and to be chopped up into pieces while they were still alive and knowing that you were going to be next. To ease their minds, there were members of the priesthood who would distribute a drug to the people being sacrificed called Ithli, which was a mind-numbing agent that would dull their thoughts and make the terrible things that were about to happen to them much more manageable. After all, it was much easier to have the people the Aztecs intended to kill walk up to their deaths under their own power rather than carry them up there, kicking and screaming for all they could muster. In many ways, we take more precautions in modern-day slaughterhouses for cows, so they don’t see what is about to happen to them than previous cultures of human beings did toward fellow humans. So making those sacrifices numb and dumb with drugs was a key to pulling off a successful mass sacrifice. The less people could think about what was about to happen to them, the better the whole event would go. 

Of course, this is the root cause of the same mass sacrifice that liberals use today to appease the same pagan gods, but only now that they changed the names. Climate change is their new Huitzilopochtli, and a persistence global drug culture of legalized intoxicants serves the same purpose. Liberals, the direct descendants of all sacrificial city-state cultures, have given up the pyramid killings of the Mayans and Aztecs and now utilize mass killing through the medical industry and other devices of human harvesting where death rates are encouraged and reckless, disastrous lives advocated for to satisfy the gods of liberalism where individual integrity is looked down on, but consumption of the spirit for the masses considered a lofty goal.   When we talk about globalism, and the evils of the Great Reset, where it’s evident that mass death was the goal, not the deterrent, it’s the same old gods and the same mentality of mass sacrifice to them that we are seeing. It is also why all liberalism is evil; we are not dealing with rational political parties. We are dealing with an evil that inspired Christianity in the first place, the human answer to the thousands of years of stupidity in trying to appease mindless spirits who mask themselves as gods and speak to the drunk and intoxicated maniacally to create destruction and mayhem to all civilization. You can surely see their work in the Biden White House, the many evils that just the Hunter Laptop has revealed. We can see it in the FBI raid of Trump’s home in Florida. We can see it in the open border policies where women are raped daily, children are destroyed, and the drug cartels are empowered with almost a wink and a nod from our own CIA and FBI. And the hatred of America from those globalists who want to kill mass society for all the same reasons that the Aztecs killed their prisoners is much more common than anybody wants to admit. We are not dealing with rational political disagreements here, we are dealing with an evil that has been with mankind since the beginning of time, and America was an invention to destroy that evil. Not to yield to it. We are meant to destroy these sacrificial cultures once and for all, and when it is asked what is behind the MAGA movement of our times, it is nothing less than the destruction of evil on earth once and for all. Anything less would be considered not acceptable.

Beetlejuice and the Head-Shrinker: Standing and fighting instead of getting up and leaving

What’s going on with conservatives? Aren’t they all like Mitch McConnell asks the modern progressive loser working in government, bowing to the feet of the United Nations, and has always had globalism as the sovereign idea for the future of humanity? No, they were never like Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, or Liz Cheney. The Cheney family, the Bush family, the McCains, the Portmans, and other similar political figures have been propped up to represent the conservative side without actually representing anybody but liberals. And there aren’t that many real liberals in the world; not once people started really talking to each other. Instead, Republicans are more like the witch doctor at the end of the great, funny movie from the 80s, Beetlejuice. You might remember when Beetlejuice was in the afterlife at the end of the movie, and he had a long wait in the receptionist lobby for his appointment with the everlasting. But next to him is a head-shrinker who will be called next. So Beetlejuice steals his number by tricking him into cutting in line. The behavior of Beetlejuice in that movie is how I see Democrats, takers, ostentatious imposers of time and money upon the world around them. And Americans, real Americans, are tired of them and want to do to them what that head-shrinking witch doctor did to Beetlejuice upon realizing that the guy had just stolen our ticket. The witch doctor simply sprinkles some dust over Beetlejuice’s head; just like that, his head shrinks to close out the movie with a funny ending. That’s where America is with globalism and the sorry, loser Republicans who have helped it along.

This issue hasn’t been addressed before in America because conservatives have always responded to liberalism by moving away. You can see the trend clearly if you have watched real estate values over the years. Where liberals move to, conservatives move away to get away from them. It’s even more evident in crowded movie theaters. You might notice that few people ever choose to sit next to someone else if they don’t have to. Americans like their space and their personal freedoms, so when given the option to turn the other cheek and leave, they usually do. Conservatives never choose to sit down next to a heavily tattooed, blue-haired liberal covered in body piercings and to start conversing with them. Instead, they’ll do what they need to do to be as far away as possible from them. When those types of people start moving from one place to another, conservatives pack up and leave. Only now, we live in a time where there really isn’t any place to go. Traveling a lot around the country, you can see this condition  most apparent in places like Austin, Texas. Liberals have been encouraged by radical progressives like George Soros and many like him to invade conservatives in their home areas and attempt to convert them to liberalism or make them move away so that liberals can take over the local government in those areas. Those areas then become blue areas, states, or cities, and then start the process of personal destruction because Democrats take over those governments. 

Now there isn’t anywhere to go. People have moved, turned the other cheek, and are now red with the slaps. And Republicans have not represented them the way they sold themselves. Real Republicans are tired of having Beetlejuice continuously stealing their number and cutting in line, playing them for suckers. So they are fighting back; they are turning toward Trump, who fights back the way they want conservatives always to do. And that is why voters are picking Trump-backed candidates in the upcoming election over traditional offerings. That’s why political machine families like Liz Cheney are suddenly ineffective. They never represented conservatives, but Democrats knew if those people were in government, it would be easy to destroy conservatives any time they wanted.

For many years people just tried their best to ignore politics and its influence over their lives. But eventually, it was just Beetlejuice and the witch doctor sitting alone in that lobby of the afterlife, and everything was going to come to a head, which is where we find ourselves now. Republicans want their party back. They don’t want to keep moving and avoiding Democrats wherever they appear. Aside from moving into space, there isn’t anywhere in the world anymore to get away from the globalist goals of Democrats, so finally, the idea of standing and fighting is part of the conservative view. Ten years ago and beyond, conservatives might have said about their liberal instigators, pray for them, wish them well. Then they would go to their homes in rural America and give themselves space to deal with Democrats, and it worked so long as they could get away from them. But not anymore. Now the Democrats are moving all over the country like the disease they are, destroying healthy tissue in government whenever possible. It’s what they do; it’s all they do.

Fortunately, there really aren’t that many Democrats, which will become very obvious if America moves to paper ballots and a one-day election as they have in France. All the early voting that Democrats want and the mail-in considerations have only opened the door for massive cheating, which has obviously been going on for a long time, and in giving the impression that Democrats were even with Republicans in real numbers among the population density. In actuality, there is only one Beetlejuice in a roomful of Republicans. There really aren’t that many loser liberals out there, which becomes apparent when you see a voting map of America where only a few blue areas show concentrated in large cities and their surrounding counties, while the rest of the nation is overwhelmingly red. In the past, conservatives would just sell their property and move to leave behind their homes to incoming Democrats. They’d move to Florida or wherever liberals weren’t and hoped to avoid dealing with Democrats in any way possible, just as they do in crowded movie theaters. But a point comes where people realize there is nowhere to go, so they are turning their need for change toward the Republican Party as a whole and replacing the kind of candidates that represent them. And that is what is at the heart of the MAGA movement. People are tired of their own version of Beetlejuice and want retaliation for Democrats always stealing their stuff. And they want to fight back, finally and fully. That means Fox News has lost its audience. The Chamber of Commerce’s view of the world has lost its grip on mass populations. And publishing is obviously making a turn; the books that are selling are not the memoirs of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as they used to be. It’s The Great Reset by Alex Jones and news about the Trump White House by Jarad Kushner. And people will go wherever Trump is on social media because they want the head-shrinker who will retaliate against Beetlejuice and defend conservative values instead of always being a sucker to liberals. Sure, there is panic among traditional media and the leaders of political parties. It’s scary to have their head shrunken by an angry conservative. But it’s the wave of the future and will just get more intense as people stop doing what they have done for years, and that is to get up and leave. When there is nowhere to go, standing and fighting are the only and next option.

Only Idiots Follow Orders: There is no excuse for the abuse of authority by the FBI and other policing agencies

Some of the worst crimes in all of human history have come from people just following orders. Defying orders is often the right thing to do because a corrupt person can’t impose behavioral applications on a good person. Instead, a weak person accepts the decisions of a bad person to commit vast crimes, which has been the history of much of the human race. To justify non-thinking behavior, people say, “but I was just following orders.”  We have been taught all our lives to follow directions. We first learn it from our parents. Then we learn it in our schools. We are told what to do in our religions, politics, and social circles. So, of course, when a weak person is told to do some terrible thing under orders, our default mode is to obey. For so many people, their desire to obey authority is their first and primary concern, to be a nice, compliant human being. Because we have been told all our lives that doing what we are told is good. Not following orders is bad. We never question the validity of the person giving the orders, only that they were followed to the letter. And under such a guise, so much crime has been committed against so many people over the entire span of the human race. And vast evil has been spread to every corner of the earth. 

That is why there is so much anger at the FBI for President Trump’s Florida home break-in. If they were filled with good people, the FBI would have defied the orders and not conducted the break-in. It was not honorable for them to follow the orders of the Biden White House and his Department of Justice for the political witch-hunt that it was. That the 30 FBI officers who did conduct the raid considered their orders more important than actually following the law says everything. It does not give them a free pass for their behavior. For the idiot that follows corrupt orders, they then become just as corrupt. If bad people take over your government, who is to stop them from controlling all the levers of power if compliance with orders is more important than following the law? Defiance is mandated when corruption speaks, and the authority figures who demand injustice for the morality of following orders are evil and must be defeated with rebellion. Yes, people have a right to be upset with the FBI in the wake of the Trump raid and the abuse of Peter Navarro, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Steve Bannon, and many others who the FBI and other police agencies have unjustly attacked by a government that has drifted into corruption. It is not the good cop who follows the orders of bad politicians who deserves understanding. In defiance of corrupt orders, the human race should be defined. Not by the quality of compliance but by the standard of efficacy that the individual upholds. 

The purpose of being an intelligent human being is to use the freedom of intellect to make proper decisions. Leaders bring people into following them out of showing the path to self-preservation, not sacrifice to a Liberal World Order. That is what the nature of orders requires: a thoughtless commitment to organizational structure. Once evil penetrates that structure, a commitment to evil is unleashed for all to suffer. And from there, evil rules the day to the misery of everyone. And it only takes one bad person in the chain of command to perpetrate such evils. And just because law enforcement wears the blue uniform and carries the star of law and order on their breast pocket, it doesn’t mean they stand for truth and justice. It means they follow orders and expect their entire existence to base their moral quandaries on compliance with higher authorities regardless of whether or not those higher authorities work for good or evil. Definitions of evil are not relevant to such systems of authority, only compliance to the highest established authority that is present to give the orders. So in that regard, the FBI and CIA, and other three lettered agencies that conduct government business and commit major infractions on innocent people every day, are just as bad as those at the top who have been captured by the evils of politics in the Biden administration, or Merrick Garland who is still upset that he’s not a lifelong Supreme Court judge appointed under Obama instead of the Trump pick who knocked him out of contention.   That is really the root of all politics that some people like Biden and Garland will do anything to capture high office positions because they believe that if they acquire them that they will then be able to tell vast bureaucracies what to do because they know they will follow orders, regardless of if the orders are good or evil. When the FBI raided Trump’s home and went through the personal belongings of Melania Trump, the agents knew it was evil, yet they did it anyway. Then after, when they wanted the country to forgive them, they said, “but we were only following orders.” 

Following orders blindly and without question is not moral or good. Only the person who pushes back against immoral orders can be considered to be a good person. We are thoughtful people for a reason, not mindless dogs or horses that can be ridden anywhere by anybody at the whim of a fool. We were designed to rebel; it’s the basic nature of a human being. That doesn’t mean that people won’t follow a leader. But what it means is that the best leaders know how to get people to follow them out of the self-interest of the participants rather than the mindless obedience of a cog in the wheels of life. It is not good to allow law enforcement under orders of a corrupt government to allow them to accost you and your belongings and embarrass you to the public, which is clearly what the FBI was doing to Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon, and the attack on Trump was to show dominance and authority over the former President. So how can you tell if the government giving orders is good? Well, if people find they can find advantages through mutual morality for self-preservation and the best interests of those involved are the most obvious. When people know that a leader knows what they are talking about, they will be willing to get advice on the best strategy. But blind compliance to an evil intention does not give soldiers and law enforcement a free pass to the golden gates of morality without question. It doesn’t even take them to the door. There is no path for the ruthless dictator and their followers to gain morality through blind compliance, which is what is expected. And why the FBI finds themselves in a public relations nightmare on a basic concept that they perhaps never contemplated, that people would hold them accountable for their actual actions, not just in their ability to follow orders, which they all thought was all that mattered. In the world of truly free people, orders and compliance are just chains to stupidity, the same stupidity that has followed every act of evil since the beginning of time.

Ricky Shiffer Attacked the FBI: Don’t get caught playing their game, the way to beat them is to take away their money

The frustration that Ricky Shiffer experienced when he attacked the FBI headquarters in Cincinnati is understandable, just as the January 6th rioters were understandable in their anger over election fraud. But I say to them and anybody else thinking about the injustice they see coming out of the FBI and law enforcement in general, the law is against them. Don’t let them bait you into making a bad move because all they have on their side is the attempt to victimize themselves and gain public sentiment by victimizing their position. Even though he was upset about the FBI raid of Trump’s home, Ricky Shiffer should have been cool and allowed the process to play out, even though the great fear is that these law enforcement types are manipulating the law to cover their own crimes, just remember that they do not have the legal position of merit at their backs. They have no other option but to try to win public sentiment through the traditional “sacrifice of public service” display. But people see what is going on, and the way to deal with these things at this point is through the election process. Fight to ensure we have free and fair elections, then use elections to remove these corrupt people from their positions. That is the case whether we are talking about local issues like public schools where obvious crime and misconduct have occurred. Yet, the authorities in charge are grossly abusing their power, or it’s the FBI office in your community. For me, the Ricky Shiffer story is a local one, it happened in my neck of the woods, and I understand there are lots of people out there like him. They are angry, and they want justice. But, the bad guys know how to twist things to their advantage, and Ricky should have never let himself be drawn into their trap. Because once he was, they could then control the narrative, which is all they really care about anyway, controlling public perception and using their manipulation over the media to continue their abuse of power fueled by taxpayer dollars.

I see all these bad things that the FBI has been caught doing as advantages. I would say the same to the local school board problems or the corruption of a local sheriff, where the law is certainly one way for political enemies but quite another for their friends and associates. Without the measure of a law and order society to compare to, there wouldn’t be any way to really say that things are out of control. And that’s when people like Ricky spring into action when they think there is no hope for justice and that they must take it upon themselves to defeat bad guys and restore order to the world. Part of the plan of how evil works in the world is to drive people toward the sense of desperation that causes them to remove themselves from the best strategic decision and then present themselves in a vulnerable way. From there, then they are playing the FBI game and falling right into their hands. When Ricky Shiffer attacked the Cincinnati field office, he might have made a few people think he was doing a good thing on Truth Social, Trump’s very good social media site. Still, he weakened his argument by allowing the pressure they created to inspire him to move off his already good position and go to them instead of making the FBI accountable at the ballot box with new management. Part of their goal in supporting a Democrat political party in America is to push people into a sense of desperation so that they act against the law because they have been led to believe that it is no longer respected. That is part of the strategy, and during the years of Trump in politics, this impression has only gained more bold action. But that says more about them than it does their opposition, the Constitutional conservatives who have gravitated toward the MAGA movement of populism.   The administrative state, which the FBI is struggling to protect with its bloated bureaucracy and big government ideas, is showing all its cards and building a case for their elimination in the future day by day. Let them make it because they are their own worst enemy.

Ultimately, Ricky Shiffer’s greatest power wasn’t a gun or threat of violence against the FBI. The January 6th protestors didn’t need to raid the Capitol building to prove their point. They were made to feel desperate by the regime in control. We’ve watched the Swamp in Washington attempt to use public sentiment against the protestors, even though the world had watched all through 2020 that liberal rioters were unleashed in all our cities and did far worse. Things go wrong when you get caught playing the game that the bad guys want you to play. The greatest weapon Ricky had, and we all have, is the power of the purse, the funding mechanism to feed the beast. That is where the administrative state is weakest, whether it’s the local school system or the corrupt national FBI. Don’t charge them with your guns and aggression, hoping to bring things to a conclusive resolution with a show of force. The FBI presents themselves with a show of force because it’s the only thing they can do. They do not have the law to their back, and much of what they did to Trump has put them in a bad public relations position. It has cost them far more harm than the fear of the public turning against them and attacking them where they work, like the Cincinnati field office. 

The way to attack is to reduce the size of government, vote for the kind of people who understand that smaller government is the way to go and choke them out of their funding. I know it doesn’t come out very sexy; it’s not like the movies we’ve seen where it’s a three-act play, the presentation of the situation, then the trouble is shown, then there is the climax at the end of the movie where everything is resolved. These legal problems are a running gig day by day and year by year. And if you look at things in the long run, we have learned a lot more about our FBI and their true nature based on how they have acted toward Trump, which has been very valuable. Before Trump, only conspiracy theories were talked about on talk radio at 2 AM in the morning. Now there are thousands of podcasters talking about these crimes from the FBI in the middle of the day all across the country. So, things are getting better the worse they look because now we can see what the FBI and law enforcement is really about. And that information can then help us know why we must defund them and replace them with something much more manageable and better for our society than the thugs of lawless bureaucrats they have become. It’s not a cliché to say that knowledge is a more powerful weapon than anything else, but it’s true.

Knowing what we are dealing with is far more important than whether they followed the law or not because we can then establish intent. And once you’ve done that, you can see the situation for what it really is, not how they want you to see it. And from there, you can decide what to do about it. But when you discover that these are bad people who have been up to no good, don’t let that knowledge rot you to your core with audacious revelation. Be cool, use the law to your advantage and manage them through the power of the purse. Taking away their money is the best way to harm them. That is a weapon that all the guns in the world couldn’t do better. And it’s time we use it for the purpose of good in the world.   It takes money to run all this evil. Take it away from them; then they will have nothing to fuel their activity.
