Thomas Hall Wins the 46th Ohio Representative Seat: Sheriff Jones has no clothes

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a political candidate who deserved election or re-election more than Thomas Hall did in a very tough year where districts were redrawn at the last minute. There was more internal party opposition against an opponent than what he not only survived in an August 2022 primary but excelled. In the end, Thomas Hall beat his rival, Matt King, by almost 12%, although with the addition of Liberty Township to the new 46th district, it looked like the race might tighten up. By the time the smoke cleared, it was an easy win for Thomas Hall despite the opposition. Part of that was that he has had an excellent record during his first term. But the rest of it was that he just worked so hard to win, personally knocking on over 6000 doors and meeting voters face to face. And many members of the Butler County Republican Party, led by Sheriff Jones, threw everything they had at him, including the kitchen sink and all the plumbing, to defeat him. But it didn’t make a dent in Thomas, which didn’t surprise me in the least. I had called the race over eight months ago and given my personal endorsement. And as history shows, when I endorse someone, they tend to win. Not so much for anything I do, but for the quality of people, the candidates tend to be and for knowing the trends in politics. Nobody was going to outwork Thomas Hall, and as I have come to know him, he’s a good, sincere person to his very core. Nobody would beat Thomas Hall as long as he let voters know who he was, which he did, walking neighborhoods for many weeks now, shaking hands and talking to people instead of just sending out mailers, robocalls, and hit pieces on Facebook. Thomas was well funded and did all the usual political stuff, which I mentioned. But in addition to that, his campaign put in many thousands of hours of labor into direct communication with real people cutting out all the traditional media from hijacking the process. And for voters, they have come to realize they are lucky to have someone like Thomas to vote for. 

The sad part of this story, as positive as it has been, was the tragic fall of Sheriff Jones, who made it his personal vendetta to destroy Thomas Hall in every way, shape, and form. For several months now, I have felt sorry for Sheriff Jones. I see what he is going through now in many of the competitive shooting events that I do throughout the year. It’s tough to be the best at something, then suddenly, some young kid who can do it better, faster, and more often than you comes along, and it hurts. I’ve seen that kind of jealousy destroy many people, and many never recover from it. Thomas Hall wasn’t willing to kiss the ring of one of Butler County’s kingmakers in the Republican Party. Jones obviously took it personally and decided to primary Hall for a second term in the Ohio legislature as a Representative. I watched over much of the fall of 2021 as many fellow Republicans were unified and would attend events together in great camaraderie, to suddenly being enemies with one another. That’s about when Sheriff Jones went on WLW radio and went out of his way to embarrass Thomas Hall because the Sheriff didn’t like his voting record. So, he wanted to show himself as the kingmaker in Butler County and put his aggressive efforts behind Matt King to primary out of office Thomas Hall. Suddenly, many of those same Republicans weren’t getting together anymore, and by the spring of 2022, the sides were split. Most Republicans who wanted to maintain a relationship with Sheriff Jones had turned against Thomas, betting that his political career was over because Sheriff Jones had decided it was. 

I’ve known Sheriff Jones for a long time. I have liked him most in the early days of the Tea Party movement, then again during the first Trump term. To his credit, he was one of the first area Republicans to join behind Trump in 2016. But I remind people often that Trump used to be a Democrat. So did Kari Lake, for that matter. Sheriff Jones, to me, has shown himself to be a big government Democrat who dresses as a 50s-style cowboy sheriff. I like the look. But his actions are much more Democrat than conservative. We had a mutual friend in David Kern, so we have tolerated each other the way relatives do at Thanksgiving Dinner. Sometimes we got along, sometimes not so much. I’ve always liked what he brought to the “Republican” brand as an image. But have been embarrassed by him often as a public official. I understand that he’s never done anything but public life. So it’s been a relationship I’ve been willing to take the good with the bad. That holds until I see him start abusing his power as he clearly did with Thomas Hall. Then anything good Sheriff Jones had done all these years suddenly gets tossed out the window as he does the very Democrat thing, abusing his authority to exert power over others. He went way out of his way to make an example out of Thomas Hall, and many other Republicans followed after him. 

In the end, the good guys won. Thomas won due to his great reputation and his very hard work. He didn’t need a party endorsement, even though he should have had it as a good incumbent. Nobody wanted to cross Sheriff Jones and feared what their own political futures might become if they did. So, things got very ugly during the campaign. Nobody would have thought poorly of Thomas Hall if he had caved under pressure. I always thought he was the clear winner, and I would tell him that. I knew if people could get to know Thomas the way I had, that they’d easily vote for him no matter what Sheriff Jones said. I also knew that Sheriff Jones didn’t have the political capital that he thought he had. Outside of some Lakota school board members, some reporters at Fox 19, and some thankful tax increase moms in the neighborhoods around his house in Liberty Township, a lot of people don’t like Sheriff Jones because they have come to know him as a bully. And so long as Jones has stayed in that bubble, he hasn’t had to face the truth about how people really feel about him when his back was turned. I have often thought some of those feelings were unfair. I always thought Sheriff Jones meant well, looking at him through the eyes of someone like the late Liberty Township trustee, David Kern. But after what Jones did to Thomas Hall during this election cycle and other Republicans who dared to support him, I could see why so many people would not like the Sheriff. So, I knew when it came time to vote; people would pick Thomas Hall. And, of course, they did. After all the money that was spent against Hall by the Sheriff Jones-led Matt King challenge, it’s evident that many of those characters were stuck in the past and had not learned the lessons of recent political trends. You couldn’t buy elections anymore with ads in the paper, simple yard signs, or robocalls with the Sheriff talking endorsements. I had many tens of thousands of hits on this site over the last several months from people looking for more information on Thomas. And what they found was the truth, the truth better than paid ads and sheriff endorsements can give. People were able to see Thomas Hall for the excellent person that he was. And that’s why he won and will continue to well into the future.

Lakota is Teaching Children to be Street Walkers: Darbi Boddy pulls back the veil to reveal what has been hidden from the public, thanks to Channel 5 News

I suppose we should thank Channel 5 news in Cincinnati and the attempts by Karin Johnson to help the mad moms of Lakota build a case against the new school board member, Darbi Boddy, for showing us something we did not previously know. We keep hearing from the actual people committing all the vile acts in Lakota about how innocent they are, how CRT isn’t being taught and how mean Darbi Boddy is and how several parents are circulating a petition to get Darbi removed, even though the voters just picked her to do the job she has been doing. Darbi represents a large portion of the Lakota school district just north of Cincinnati, Ohio. She has been asking many questions, mainly about what kids are being taught and how radicalized it is toward progressive political goals that are nationwide and very dangerous to a healthy society. Darbi didn’t believe the people who were saying there was no CRT in Lakota and that the transexual agenda wasn’t a problem. So Darbi showed up at a couple of Lakota’s schools unannounced and took some pictures. This outraged parents, so they pulled security footage of where Darbi went, and Karin Johnson from Channel 5 put some of the results up on a television report. In one of the clips, they are accusing Darbi of taking a picture of a student, even though she said she didn’t take any pictures of any of the kids. Based on what was shown, it’s an irrelevant point. The student that Darbi took notice of in the hallways and that the mother of the Karin Johnson news report pulled back the veil just enough to give voters a real glimpse into what is really going on at Lakota, away from the sustained eyes of the public and hidden behind polite theatrics at school board meetings. We saw in the video a young girl dressed essentially as a street walker on par with some of the worst in Washington D.C.’s K-Street.  And it shows that Lakota has some big problems.

To hide the issue, the mad moms, the complicit administrators, and the rival school board members, the fuel behind the Channel 5 continued story, felt Darbi shouldn’t have been there. She didn’t have “permission” to visit the school in such an unofficial capacity. Yet legally, Darbi Boddy was elected to do exactly what she has been doing, so the debate is over technique, and as I say all the time to everyone, the rules are not meant for winners. The losers write rules to protect them from the winners in life. And rules are often used to conceal crimes, not reveal them. The administrators and members of the teacher’s union do not want management just showing up unannounced. So they have all kinds of unwritten rules to protect them from judgment. But if you really want to know what’s happening somewhere, especially where you are expected to manage the employee resources, you need to show up when they least expect it and see things for yourself. Within that framework, Darbi considers such an investigation “official business.” The school board might think they need a vote from the board to do such things, but it’s behind that kind of bureaucracy that the real crimes get committed. So I think Darbi is right to show up unannounced to take some pictures and stir things up a bit. Because if she hadn’t, we wouldn’t be talking about this story in the middle of summer 2022 when very few people are thinking about public school business. 

There has been a lot of frustration about CRT at Lakota and across the country. Polite school board members playing by the unofficial rules of conduct are hoping that people will be honest and reveal their clandestine radicalism while they are in possession of the community’s children. So they keep hoping a whistleblower will step forward and reveal all the evidence needed to conclude a case, and action can then be taken. But as I have also been saying for a long time, you can tell all you need to know by the kind of students and what views they express just from the safety of a school board meeting. But if that weren’t enough, my attention was directed to a Spark article about dress codes that came up over this overly sexualized student in the Channel 5 report, which clearly shows how radical the student population has become. Spark is the student-run newspaper. In the December 28th, 2021 edition titled “Back to the Drawing Board,” students are seeking to reform the school’s dress code to reflect anti-racist sentiments, which specifically include do-rags and sexually “expressive” attire that is directly tied to rape culture. Yeah, that’s really in the article. Strangely, Karin Johnson didn’t report about that even when there was evidence of it right in front of her. The point of the Channel 5 report was to talk about how “dangerous” Darbi Boddy is as a school board member and not following some written or unwritten rules. And that the kid dressed as a streetwalker in the school in front of other children and administrators was the victim. The Spark article goes on to say, “regulating students’ bodies is also another way of perpetuating white, heterosexual, middle-class values, as most dress codes conform to a certain kind of femininity and masculinity that does not take into account cultural, racial, religious, gender, and sexual differences among students.” Many people likely don’t know about the Spark article and otherwise wouldn’t know what students think about dress codes if this Channel 5 report had not shown us the alarming student who thought she needed to express herself as a K-Street applicant to a purple-hatted pimp on the street corner. We used to call them ladies of the night, but these days, the streetwalkers are on the streets at 6 AM. So it’s an expanding market looking for more Lakota applicants, by the way, things look. 

Essentially, the inmates are running the asylum. The administrators allow this bad behavior to continue in the schools and look for overly restrictive school board rules to protect them from administrative judgment. If Darbi Boddy had not gone to see what was going on for herself, we wouldn’t know a lot of what we do about the culture that is clearly driving CRT teaching and making everyday classroom environments highly sexualized.   When the school newspaper thinks that dress codes impose white, middle-class values on them, what the heck are we wasting all this money on an education for? If kids are learning this kind of garbage, and there are mothers like this mom of the girl in the Karin Johnson report who will expose their child on national television just to use her as leverage to get rid of Darbi Boddy off the school board, then is any of the public education at Lakota worth anything?   My question to that mom is, “why would you let your kid go to school dressed the way she was?” To be fearful that Darbi Boddy took pictures of her kid when she was more than willing to exploit that kid to push an obvious political agenda that feeds the kind of maniacal subculture reflected in the Spark article about dress codes…………….we have much bigger problems than just CRT. The public education environment is rotten to the very core of its purpose and is a problem that cannot be ignored. But thankfully, in their hate of Darbi Boddy, all these characters, the mom, Karin Johnson, teachers, administrators, purple-haired people eaters who complain at all the school board meetings about fairness as they push for openly sexual lifestyles have let us peek into their tainted world in reaction. And what we see is very ugly, dangerous, and expensive.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eric Greitens for Senate: Get your RINO Hunting card, there are no limits!

There seems to be some controversy about Eric Greitens’ new ad in Missouri, where he is running for Senate on an “anti-RINO” platform. In his ad, he uses real firearms to storm a home in a very military way to imply metaphorically that if elected, he promises to go “rino hunting” and that if you elect him, he will issue voters a “rino hunting license.” For that ad, the mainstreamers are apocalyptic; they are calling it an open invitation to fascism, where force is used to impose democratic order. Well, all this discussion merits some understanding because the political establishment continues to be perplexed about what the MAGA movement is and why there continue to be aggressive candidates running for office like Eric Greitens. They are winning primaries and setting up a general election that will not just destroy Democrat majorities in the House and Senate but knock off RINO Republicans as well. The entire media system is set up to appeal to RINOs and Democrats, and it’s been that way for many years. But slowly, since the election fraud of 2020, a decision was made by the voting public to vote for a different kind of politician, and Eric Greitens represents the standard for the new MAGA candidates. What voters want when they talk about “hunting RINOs” is revenge for selling out America over the years. In the minds of many, the behavior of Republicans in Name Only is worse than Democrats because they pretended to be something they weren’t and sought to deceive us, which deserves punishment. 

Fascism is what the Democrats have been doing: artificially raising gas prices to force the public to buy dumb electric cars. It’s about lying about birth certificates so they could run a radical as president to avoid questions of basic qualifications. It’s weaponizing the FBI to knock out political rivals. Using other countries as an excuse for bogus investigations. It’s deliberately collapsing our economy to fulfill the religious zealots advocating climate change through our Federal Reserve. Its riots in the streets over every little social issue. It’s gun control and attempting at every tragedy caused by liberal politics to erode away the constitution at every opportunity. We’ve watched fascism come into America through the Democrat Party, and we are sick of getting punched in the face over it. And we are sick of Republicans letting them do it. We elected Republicans to fight Democrats and protect our country’s constitution, but they haven’t done it. So there is justifiable anger at RINOs for talking tough but letting themselves get beat up by the bullies in the Democrat Party for many years and losing every time. What must be made clear is that Trump did not create this movement. The RINO hunting concept is not specific to President Trump. He was created out of a need to hunt RINOs. That’s why in 2015, when all the top Republicans were running for office, including people like Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and even Rand Paul, nobody was biting on them so long as Donald Trump was on stage. People wanted a real fighter, someone from the outside to shake things up. They wanted revenge for how the political machine had sold us all out and opened the door for globalism to destroy our country. And they weren’t playing games. They voted for Trump and were happy they did. They liked the way their country ran under Trump, and now they want much more of it.

What we are seeing now is something many of us were trying to figure out how to make happen over ten years ago when the Tea Party began purging RINOs from the Republican Party at the level of central committees. Many Republicans had their feelings hurt as they were being called RINOs for just working with the other side, for reaching across the aisle to work with Democrats bipartisanly. After all, that’s what politics was, right? Nobody ever gets what they want entirely, so they have to give and take and work with people with different opinions. Going back to the Ross Perot campaign of 1992, after eight years of Reagan and four years of his successor, George Bush, a significant part of the population on the Republican side was sick of all the happy talk and compromise that was going on. Even Newt Gingrich, who organized the takeover in congress in 1994, didn’t go far enough because he and Bob Dole talked tough, but Clinton beat them in the media every time. They were like the Washington Generals playing games against the Harlem Globetrotters. The Generals never win and always end up losing in comedic ways to the Globetrotters. That’s not what we wanted in politicians. We wanted winners, and many people have worked their entire adult lives to build a platform where that could happen, where winners on the conservative side would actually occupy offices. What the political establishment did to Trump before, during, and after the presidential office has been disgraceful because they are mad that we gave them politicians as voters who refused to lose. Trump expected to win, and that’s essentially what the MAGA movement is in politics. We want revenge for all the losses Republicans have given up without a fight over the years, and we want a House and Senate that thinks the same way, so that is what we have been building now for several years culminating in the kind of campaign that Eric Greitens is running in Missouri for Senate. 

The Greitens campaign is not unusual, not the way the mainstreamers wish it were. And Trump is the vehicle to make a MAGA platform happen, which he’s been doing through this primary season. The goal is not to just win the presidency, which should be obvious. It has been a multi-year plan going all the way back into the 90s to replace all three branches of government with MAGA-type candidates. We have seen how well that has been working at the Supreme Court. Now we need that kind of representation in the House and Senate, and we are getting them. Eric Greitens is just one of many who will be joining the government at the federal level and represents a new kind of politician that more reflects what the voting public actually wants. If we had been talking about fascism, then we would have just taken our guns and taken over the government at gunpoint, which is still an option if the other side tosses out our constitution, as all progressives seem inclined to do.

No, we have been doing all this work through voting, which is why we’re so upset about the obvious election fraud in 2020. Progressive globalists knew they couldn’t beat President Trump, so they stole the election to get rid of him, hoping that all this MAGA populism would just go away and they’d get Karl Rove back running the Republican Party. But no, those loser Republicans are not coming back. We have been working within the Republican Party for a long time to change how Republicans play the game.   And we want revenge against the RINOs who have sold America out, people like Mitch McConnell. And we want Republicans who go to Washington D.C. and expect to win. Not who expects to “compromise” with evil and expect the country to survive. Democrats have shown they don’t like America, so compromising with them is not a good idea. And when a candidate like Greitens comes along and talks about RINO hunting, he’s speaking the language of most American voters. And there is nothing that the establishment can do to hide that fact. They’ve done enough damage already.

How to Explain Election Fraud to Non-Believers: Texas Republicans Disavow the Biden Administration, and more will follow

The Texas Republican Party has disavowed the Biden administration due to the evidence pouring in regarding the 2020 election. This is more than political theater; it’s an actual legal position that more states will be joining in the months to come because there has now been time to look at the various election discrepancies and to understand what impact they had on the final result, which shows that Job Biden did not come close to winning the election and that he should not be in the White House presently. This, of course, brings up several very inconvenient legal problems, such as everything that Biden has done, all his executive orders, all his policy decisions, and everything he has signed his name to has no legal merit because he was elected fraudulently and every day that he is in office, he is causing further damage to a country that is being run by the administrative state, and not the people of our republic. We do not have a flea-bitten democracy; as liberals say all the time, we have a representative republic. The assumption was that if Democrats screamed loudest and most often, they could override the legality of office holder positions, but we are seeing that no matter how loud they shout and attempt to suppress the crime that many thousands of them committed, the evidence of massive election fraud is coming in fast now. And lots of people are talking about it way more than they thought would be at this point in the Biden administration, and they aren’t sure what to do about it. Nobody can ignore the obvious problems it causes. 

The plan all along was to control the messaging in the media, to keep the evidence from getting out. As I point out, the plan for stealing the election leads all roads to the World Economic Forum members who did it. It’s all the same people involved in Covid, manipulating the media with massive donations, the war against fossil fuels, climate change religious radicalism; the guilt points ultimately to the door of Klaus Schwab and his partners in crime, the Desecrators of Davos as I call them. They were heavily invested in their Great Reset, with trillions of dollars of assets they controlled, and they weren’t going to let an American election destroy their plans. They were going to get rid of Trump, hell, or high water, and they were going to insert their guy into the White House to make sure their plans happened, which were outlined in their eight predictions by 2030, four of which directly attack the lifestyle of the United States. Many want to believe that China worked out all the details of backdooring our election system, and it looks like they certainly played their role. But the instigators point back originally to the World Economic Forum. They are the characters of intent. They operate outside nations’ sovereignty and aren’t tied down with silly things like laws and social constructs. They are simply the next evolution of Socialist International, functioning like a secret society that isn’t a secret. They control the media, they control most of industry, and they control the political movements around the world and are determined to finally make the ridiculous work of Karl Marx come to reality under global unity. So, when you want to know who stole our election in 2020, look no further than Klaus Schwab and the gang. They ate the canary; we can still see the feathers sticking out of their smiling faces. 

Now that there are better social media platforms that aren’t controlled by the Desecrators of Davos types, such as Truth Social and Gettr, talk of election fraud is accelerating. That is what the J6 commission is all about: hiding the real crime of election fraud by attempting to penalize those who were upset about the fraud. Facebook and Twitter no longer have market share in shaping the story; too many people are now on the alternatives that the nightly news can’t be contained behind a façade of discourse that would deny election fraud until the end of time. So there is a panic that I have noticed from the liberal antagonizers who are trying to harass people who continue to profess that election fraud happened by challenging them to prove it. Well, here is what I have been saying to all of them, those antagonizers. It’s not our job, the victims of election fraud from the 2020 election, to prove to people who do not want to see the evidence and make them look at it. The criminals who committed the fraud and continue to advocate for it with an illegal president in the White House signing all kinds of legislation, none of which has any legal merit, don’t get to give us more work to do to convince them of their bad deeds. Instead, the abundance of evidence is everywhere. I’d refer them to read the CISA report that shows the electronic machines could be backdoored through the internet and likely were. That is an official report that is quite concerning. That’s a big problem all by itself. But we don’t even need that to prove that Joe Biden should not be in the White House. We have the names of the mules who trafficked ballots and were paid half a billion dollars by Facebook to steal the 2020 election. There is a clear prosecution trail, and the path to justice flows through Facebook, and ultimately the ringleader of the Desecrators of Davos, Klaus Schwab, where Bill Gates, George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg, and Larry Fink all are working to undo America as a superpower and to give birth to a New World Order that they control. What’s hard to understand about that? 

The next thing that people who are trying to conceal the steal is that they point to the states certifying the election, that no judge found in favor of President Trump and that we should all just move on. It’s quite evident in hindsight what the criminals intended with the election; they knew legally that there wasn’t enough time from November when we had the election to January when the next president was to be inaugurated to pose any real legal challenge. The game all along was to run out the clock and push Trump out of the White House. It was a coup organized by the same radical elements we had just seen, even in the FBI, working on getting rid of the people’s pick for president and inserting characters of their desire from the administrative state. Trump’s lawyers tried to do a multi-year investigation in December 2020, but that just wasn’t enough time, and the courts rejected all the efforts because courts take time. Everyone knew it would take years to dig through all the election fraud issues, so the steal intended to use the process timeline to help hide the evidence. They figured it would be too late by the time everyone figured out what happened, which is where we find ourselves today. The evidence is there, but nobody really knows what to do about it because it has significant legal implications that nobody wants to deal with. But just remember, the same people who lied to us about Covid, about the use of Ivermectin and Hydroxicloriqine to treat it and save lives, and instead pushed vaccine mandates on us that only were good for the drug companies who made them, are all the same people trying to steer everyone away from election fraud. And that tells you exactly who the guilty parties are. They are all involved in the greatest crimes ever conducted on humanity, and punishments for those crimes are mandated justice that can’t be ignored. They have been caught, and there is a mounting chorus of voices who realize what happened and aren’t happy about it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why I Am Proud of Vivek Ramaswamy: The New Declaration of Independence

When I saw Vivek Ramaswamy at the Lincoln Day Dinner 2022 in Butler County, Ohio, I brought my copy of his book Woke, Inc for him to sign. I had a VIP pass, so I figured at some point I’d get a chance to see him behind the scenes, and I had to take that opportunity to get him to sign what I think will be a book that will define our age, this weird kind of financial war America is in with the rest of the world. Getting books signed isn’t a usual thing for me; I have to be very impressed with the author even to seek a signature, and my reason for doing this one with Vivek was I knew my great-grandchildren would be going through my books a century or two from now wanting to understand me and all the things I was involved in during my life. I wanted them to see Vivek’s signature to understand the magnitude of what was coming next. These many steps would occur over the next decade to save America for the world to enjoy, and knowing that the book Woke, Inc played a significant part in that effort, I put more emphasis on it than I otherwise would. I’ve read Woke, Inc at least nine times that I can remember, and many more times I’ve read sections of it because it has turned out to be a skeleton key to hundreds of other books that I have read, which sort of circled the drain, but never quite got to where they needed to go, including Klaus Schwab’s The Great Reset, and most recently, The Great Narrative. I would also put The Lords of Easy Money into that book category brought together by Vivek’s masterpiece, Woke, Inc. It had been a journey since I last spoke to Vivek Ramaswamy at the Middletown Republican Headquarters for a special event where he talked about his upcoming book, and during that, he gave me a little promo card that I had kept on my desk since then. At the time, our meeting was unremarkable, but I felt that he was performing a kind of Paul Revere task in a new type of revolution, so I made a point to read his book the day it came out. I was very glad I did.

Since August of 2021, Vivek has been talking about his new book all over the media, and I was proud of him. He came from my area; he actually went to Lakota schools for a short time in his youth before moving to Evendale, where his father worked at GE. Vivek grew up and made well for himself, working on Wall Street and becoming a CEO of a few companies in biotech. We ran into each other a few times before the Covid pandemic, and during that time, he came up with this idea to tackle woke culture in our corporations just as the world was going into lockdowns over the pandemic. When I ran into Vivek again at the Middletown event, he was on to something that was just then becoming a recognizable problem, the takeover of American corporations by liberal politics that were backdooring our Constitution and imposing themselves beyond our politics for the destruction of our society. I thought his speech was compelling, so when he did his book tour on Fox News and many other places, I tried to catch every interview with him that I could, and I continued to be increasingly impressed, especially as we saw what The Great Reset by Klaus Schwab had been building up to in a post-Covid economy. Vivek had been more correct about things than anybody could have imagined. He took his insider knowledge of how Wall Street worked, and with Woke, Inc, he got in front of a significant attack on our way of life in America, and he really earned my respect. This respect culminated after rereading Woke, Inc after watching Vivek at the 2022 CPAC in Florida. That’s when it was clear that America was under attack not with tanks and troops but through finance and international progressivism. Before anybody knew what was coming, Vivek had his finger on it. 

But what made me want to get his signature wasn’t any of those things. By all measures of success, Vivek had hit the jackpot with Woke, Inc. But so do many other writers. It was a successful book that had been on the bestseller’s list for many months.   But that wasn’t why Vivek was doing what he was doing. The book was just the first step in the ultimate solution. When I found out about that, I grew very excited and determined that I would get him to sign my book the next time I saw him. Many people don’t understand the world of money management, which most of us have to interact with, and unfortunately, they have all turned radically to the political left. While we are arguing about politics and election results, these radical left-wingers have taken over all of finance. It doesn’t matter if its Larry Fink’s BlackRock, but State Street, Vanguard, and dozens of others at the top which all our 401K plans flow through are forcing us to hold our nose and put up with it because literally all our life’s work is often entangled in these liberal companies. They have shown that they are attacking our culture where it hurts most, through our economy. That is why Disney is bent over backward presently because their executives have all been put in place to satisfy ESG scores. Power plants are closing in Ohio because BlackRock owns a majority share of stock and can now command how the company has been run. In Larry Fink’s case, he has had a very incestuous relationship with the Federal Reserve, with Ben Bernake, Janet Yellon, and now Jerome Powell. They have printed money for Wall Street to build up a massive artificial asset bubble that has allowed these money management firms to buy up all these key stocks to liberalize the companies. So this isn’t small stuff, it’s all big, and there hasn’t been a solution until Vivek Ramaswamy brought his tireless energy and talent to the problem and is essentially changing the world for the better.

At this point, I’m not going to get into the details until Vivek is ready. But what makes me so proud of him is that he is working very hard to give people a choice, which is the key to American society. When it comes to money managers, they are all currently liberalized. To deal with them, we are forced to deal with progressive politics, ESG scores, and the nightmare of international controls that even makes Klaus Schwab blush. The point of Woke, Inc for Vivek Ramaswamy has been to create an option to that problem, to give people an off-ramp for their investments that do not involve woke politics, and to allow investments to flourish in measures of actual value instead of climate change initiatives and global power politics set by radicals like Al Gore. And that option is being created as we speak, and I think it will save our country from the financial side of things. That is why I couldn’t wait to have Vivek sign my book, why I am proud to have it, and why I think my great-grandchildren will find that information valuable. They’ll understand how things occurred when they want to know why I spent the kind of time I do on these things as history reflects on it and see Vivek’s signature in that book on my vast bookshelf. We can win elections. We can fight for liberty around the world. But if we let the monsters of finance run our lives through our money, we will be held hostage to value for which the bad guys determine it. And that isn’t freedom; it’s slavery.   If we want to remain free, we must defend our financial system, our corporations, and our national economy, where we control the standard. Not Klaus Schwab, not Larry Fink, and certainly not the maniacal lunatics from Chatham House in London, where they plot to rule the world through interconnected banking and ESG manipulations. Vivek Ramaswamy is working to give us a choice, and for that, the key to saving America resides. And I am very proud of him for what he has done.

The Watergate of Butler County: When politicians try to get rid of other politicians by abusing the law

There have been many problems with the Roger Reynolds case in Butler County, Ohio since Fox 19 did a story during the 2021 election season featuring several prominent Republicans in a corruption scandal. One of which was a guy I have known for a long time to be an excellent auditor for the county in Roger Reynolds. Reviewing some of the details of the case, I considered it a simple land dispute among long-time neighbors. Reynolds has lived in Butler County much of his life, and sometimes, relationships like Thanksgiving dinners can get wobbly. And when you have family involved and emotions, and you are trying to be a public servant still, sometimes the gray areas can blend in the lines a bit. But as I said, when I think of Roger Reynolds, I think of high quality, competent public service, the best that government can offer. I have always been and continue to be very proud to have Roger Reynolds as the auditor for my county. I am proud of how the public officials generally conduct themselves in Butler County. I understand everyone doesn’t get along all the time, but for government, I think the public officials in Butler County are some of the best in the country, so I took exception to the hit piece by Fox 19 in Cincinnati. And how that real estate case ended up with charges from a grand jury of three felony indictments and two misdemeanors related to corruption, which could lead to 7 years in jail, was baffling. That is until I read a fantastic book by Geoff Shepard about Watergate called The Nixon Conspiracy

We all know Watergate, the breaking in of the DNC headquarters by G. Gordan Liddy and others on behalf of President Nixon to do opposition research. As it turned out, Nixon was innocent of the whole thing. In documents released in 2018 finally by Geoff Shepard, who worked on the case for 50 years trying to defend President Nixon from the embarrassment pushed upon him, we have learned that the prosecution didn’t like Nixon. They conspired with the law to get rid of him. Nixon never knew what the prosecution had given by way of a “road map” to the Grand Jury. And that forced him to react in all kinds of ways that looked guilty, leading the court of public opinion to put so much pressure on Nixon that he just resigned for the country’s own good. And after getting to know the situation involved in this Roger Reynolds case, that is precisely what has been going on against him. The law has been abused by many political rivals, the mushy Republicans who just don’t like Roger for several reasons, which I’ll get into. But they have taken the complaint of someone and blown it out of proportion to fulfill a politically motivated manipulation of the law and gross abuse of power that really is unforgivable. How do I know? Well, I know the players on all sides. I generally like them all. I view the situation more like a human resource problem than a legal one. But the abuse of power and manipulation of the legal system to be weaponized is another matter. This one goes all the way up to the Attorney General of Ohio, David Yost. The pressure campaign coming out of Yost’s office was essentially the same applied to Nixon. 

I wouldn’t have let myself think any of that was possible until I found out about the Grand Jury submission by the prosecutors in the Nixon case that was completely fabricated. We all would hope that journalism would have figured all that out a long time ago. It shouldn’t have taken 50 years to figure it all out. But it makes you wonder how often that kind of thing goes on, especially by those who knew they got away with destroying a president. They tried it again with President Trump. And apparently, that tactic is used all over the United States by politically motivated prosecutors and law enforcement that think it’s their right to override the voters’ opinion by destroying the lives of the politicians they elect, just because they don’t like them. In Roger’s case, he’s really good at his job, which certainly makes politicians who don’t want to work that hard to be upset. Roger is a total disclosure guy who opens his books to show all how he spends money. And many don’t want to open their books up in such a way.

Additionally, politics can be friendly. Everyone shakes hands at the picnics. They hire each other’s family members out of kindness. That is until Covid comes along and re-wrote the attendance rules. Roger’s office let go some of those family members because they stopped showing up for work, and of course, that upset other elected officeholders who decided that they’d get Roger back. Now to me, that’s an easy problem to solve. People can shake hands and smooth things out. But things get out of control when they take the law into their own hands to try to destroy people’s lives out of pure meanness. Clearly, David Yost and his advocates wanted to force Roger Reynolds out of office just as Nixon had been pushed. Roger has done the right thing and stayed on the job to fight this out. And this past week, the Supreme Court supported him.

At the heart of these accusations of corruption is an audiotape, which I have included here. On it, Roger supposedly asked for a 200K consulting fee to help navigate the developers through this real estate endeavor. I’ve listened to that recording many times, and I only hear a very astute professional talking business with businesspeople. Now for some career politicians who want to destroy the life of a guy who is a pain in their neck, I think they heard what they wanted to hear. When you read the paper trail of the case against Roger Reynolds, it becomes quite clear that there are a lot of “feelings” articulated in the accusations. This is what courts are for, and without all the political tampering that has been injected into this case, resolutions would smooth out on their own. But what has happened is that the case was taken over by political activism in how rival employees try to sabotage each other in the workplace. And it is not reflective of the Butler County Republican Party. Instead, the pressure of an outstanding elected representative in Roger Reynolds has challenged many who aren’t so good and don’t like it and have plotted his demise. And that’s not how things are supposed to work in politics. Aside from the pending case, which is Roger’s business with the other parties involved, he is also up for reelection, making this recording all the more critical. I’ll be voting for Roger Reynolds again. I think he has done a fantastic job. I like his rival in this election, Bruce Jones. I have a lot of good history with Bruce. But on this election, the guy on the recording included here is the kind of guy I want doing the business of auditing in Butler County. And if he makes other politicians mad with the pressure of his greatness, then that’s all the better and a job very well done.
