Why Sherrod Brown is Worried: Jim Renacci and Trump are winning in Ohio leaving Democrats flat on ideas

Sherrod Brown has a big problem, and by watching this MSNBC interview with Chris Mathews, to his credit, he knows it and understands it. But as a very liberal Democrat Brown fundamentally doesn’t understand wealth creation, and that only 1% of the population in any society have the stomach for it, which is why they tend to possess more wealth. Working people is a classification created by the Democratic Party to exploit for political gain a jealousy toward job creators that began with the philosophy of Karl Marx. But in America such distinctions aren’t relevant and when the Republicans can distinct themselves as champions of the average worker and the job creators, the Democrats don’t have any real leverage politically to stand which makes this interview interesting because it is discussed in an intelligent way. Brown understands how the battlefield is lining up and it’s not to his advantage. Like he said in this Mathews interview, typically in that state of Ohio that leans red, Democrats win offices by out working their opponents. But that isn’t going to work with Jim Renacci who is running against Sherrod Brown for his long-held senate seat. Renacci works hard and he understands job creators and he respects workers, and he’s competitive. That makes this fight between Brown and Renacci a game changer for all future politics.

I hate even referring to people who would rather have a simpler life punching a pay check rather than doing the 60 to 90 hours it takes to be a job maker as “working people” but that is how they have been defined by politics. It takes all kinds of people to make strong economies and to utilize the miracles of capitalism, but for the sake of politics we have to use the terms that have been created to bunch us all into voters that can be counted on to pull the lever for various members of party politics. The great thing about Trump is that nobody in politics has done more for working people than Donald Trump, he has brought back jobs that left and he has put money in the pockets of job creators to help those jobs take roots again, and Sherrod Brown finds himself standing against both issues. Brown was against the tax cuts that Trump managed to get the Republican Party to back—which would have otherwise been consumed on socialist programs Sherrod Brown supports. Because of those tax cuts for what Democrats call the 1% investments have been made to bring jobs back from other countries and establish them once again in America meaning that for the first time in well over a decade, perhaps two, job wanted signs are now populating our communities with opportunities.

Speaking from personal experience there are quite a few very good workers who had been sitting jobless for a long time and being forced to take a government check because of the lack of options and they can now get a job and earn their money for themselves, which they like. This is a recent development, since the tax cuts essentially. Trump policies are responsible for both opportunities, the jobs coming back and the investment capital to get them rolling again leaving Sherrod Brown and his work with the liberalized John Kasich out of the process. All that Brown could manage with Kasich who made deals for his own presidential run was to expand government services to more people imprisoning them to more dependency, rather than the honor of self-reliance.

With Jim Renacci running against Brown as Trump’s hand-picked candidate, it essentially throws the Trump White House behind Renacci who is himself a very hard worker in much the way Trump has been. When Mathews pointed out the Real Clear Politics polling that showed Brown with a comfortable lead, Brown pointed out the poll I mentioned a few days ago where he was only up by four. That is not where Democrats want to be, up against a hardworking, and honest Republican, with the national backing of a president who has put his name next to Renacci and is personally responsible for bringing back the opportunities Ohio voters are seeing. Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Ohio by 8% in 2016, so it wasn’t even close. Sherrod Brown is to the political left of Hillary Clinton so in a statewide election this time, even if the Republican challenger was terrible, Brown would likely struggle. But with a good candidate, like Renacci is, Brown is in real danger which is obviously very sobering.

The war of identity politics has expired with the election of Donald Trump and the Democrats are simply flat footed to deal with it. You can even see it in local races like the one in Butler County, Ohio where State Representative for the 52nd District George Lang has a Democrat challenging him for his seat in Kathy Wyenandt. Because Butler County is one of the most conservative counties in Ohio she has to run to the right of her comfort level, but the socialist nature of her party puts her in the same position as Sherrod Brown. People before politics is what she says, but what does that mean? There are all kinds of people. The 1% types who are job creators are people too, and they need workers to fill their factories. And the workers need the 1% types to make jobs for them to punch a time clock in to make some product that can then contribute to the economy. So where does that leave liberals like Kathy Wyenandt and Sherrod Brown in these days of the Trump economy? The entire Democratic platform has gambled that the Mueller investigation would erase Trump off the map by the midterms, and that hasn’t happened. That has put John Kerry out front as a potential presidential candidate to start panicking and calling Trump names as the frustration is starting to build. Not even the liberal hero Bob Woodward has stopped Trump with the latest hit book. Nothing has stopped Trump and his supporters especially in Ohio.

What has changed from now and then in 2016 in Ohio was that the Republican Party was ran by John Kasich. Now, Trump has taken over as the state leader and many of the big names of the Republican Party like Warren Davidson, Jim Renacci, and George Lang are all affiliated with the Trump presidency. If an election were held today in Ohio Trump would beat any Democrat by even more than he beat Hillary Clinton. And why, Trump has given both the worker and the job creator their pride back and cut the strings of regulation letting both do what they do best. All Sherrod Brown has managed to do was to attempt to put more people on government assistance, which for many is a disheartening thing to do. Lazy people of course don’t mind welfare, but people who can’t find a good job hate it, because they’d rather earn their own way of life than to wait for a government check to show up in the mailbox. Brown worked with the liberalized John Kasich to expand Medicaid, which is another outdated health maintenance model that could be radically altered with decentralized health care. And with those two loser positions as the only success Sherrod Brown can put his name to, he has a lot of reasons to worry.

The Latté Sipping Liberal Kathy Wyenandt and her Lakota Levy Campaign of 2013: Empowering perverts, porn addicts and government schools to limit the next generation

I didn’t think much of the latté sipping liberal Kathy Wyenandt and her Lakota levy campaign of 2013 until she started putting up signs everywhere wanting to run for the Ohio House of Representatives seat in the 52nd district. I couldn’t even remember who she was until I saw that the local newspapers and other forms of print media were stating that her big experience for such an important job in politics was the 2013 tax increase that only won by 1% point after Lakota spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of tax payer money on advisors to help the cushion the public for a big raise to give their teachers—all in the name of children of course. That’s when I remembered Kathy Wyenandt and her levy loving barrage of guilty moms who looked to Lakota schools to babysit their kids all day and call it an education then wanted to pat themselves on the back for giving teachers raises because they wanted to maintain the illusion that “education” in America meant spending money on public sector unions and that contract negotiations were all about giving over-priced employees everything they wanted. I guess she figured everyone forgot and now it was safe to come out of the hole she put herself in and run for a big state office?

I of course argued against all this paying teachers infinite amounts of money, which was a very unpopular position, because most people want to believe that the public-school system is there to help them and make their children better off. And sometimes it does. I can say that I have a grandson in Monroe schools right now and he has a fantastic teacher, but we are talking grades K through 5 when everything for kids is coming alive. His teacher doesn’t make much money yet, she is right out of college and full of ideas, and I think she’s great. And some of the teachers that Kathy Wyenandt wanted to give six figure pay rates too through the levy passage at Lakota are good teachers—some. However, the average rate of pay for Lakota teachers is up into the mid-70,0000 range per year, much higher than the average pay of the taxpayers who have to cover their bill. Unfortunately, reality has something else to say about the nature of teachers and their social worth that politicians like Kathy Wyenandt never learned.

The proper business model for a public education teacher is to bring them in young, but once they start getting up in the pay scale to encourage them to shop themselves on the open market like a free agent to keep payrolls down. During the Lakota levy campaign of 2013 Kathy Wyenandt and her foot soldiers crusading for higher taxes to protect those teachers sold the assumption that the reason we needed to pay teachers more was to stay competitive and to retain the “experience” that teachers gained from years in the classroom. But I couldn’t help but notice that younger teachers were more effective often than older ones, and I gained that experience by raising my own daughters and watching the various characters in public school that they had to deal with at both Mason then Lakota schools over the course of their youth.

People are people whether or not they are teachers being paid to babysit our children while we are busy building a life for ourselves, which is what I would say most of public education is all about for the parents. For the government schools, public education is a brain washing opportunity to train future voters in the ways of liberalism. But that is another story, in the context of teacher experience I had a person send me a Tweet that reminded me of all this which I have included here. It is a video of a male teacher who had gone back to his office while the class worked on assignments. It’s a few years old, but is just as relevant today as it was then. The teacher was watching porn during class when a student opened his door and walked in on him. The student was openly harassed in class by the teacher and embarrassed into submission, which is a lot more common an occurrence the most people would care to admit. Most students could tell adults willing to listen of teachers in any school who are creepy and p to no good like this obvious porn addict featured in the Tweet. But adults who are either too busy with their lives to do much about it, or liberal activists like Kathy Wyenandt who want the government schools to do the work they were designed to do in creating a more liberal voting base are happy to overlook these bad teachers. Instead they argue such teachers need to be paid more money.

I wouldn’t say that teaching is any harder than other jobs, but life does have a way of chipping away at people. Like the teacher I mentioned in Monroe, she is great, and I hope that if I meet her twenty years from now that she is just as optimistic about life then as she is now. But give her a few husbands that cheat on her with some younger and sluttier woman, give her kids of her own who grow up and away leaving her feeling like a used up empty husk of a person, or an achieved home of her dreams that is outdated by the time she is fifty—parents that die, dream cars that rust away and a thousand disappointments from a media culture that never really lives up to the hype on the commercials and its unlikely that she will be as enthusiastic about her job as a middle-ager bitter about life and trying to teach young people to think big and dream about learning the alphabet. By that point she’ll likely be in the $70 to $80K range in pay, and she’ll be a mess of a person and the kids will know it. That’s when the district should cut her loose and let her high wages become someone else’s problem, not the tax payers. Bitter employees who evolved from broken dreams meeting reality are the kind of people who watch porn too much and take their frustrations out on children, and nobody wants that, especially a school.

Yet liberal do-gooders who think the biological instincts of motherhood make them capable of making hard decisions about management, such as the examples I have provided regarding the type of mentality that forces districts to cut employees who might want to watch too much porn or abuse kids with power trips because they are so ineffective in their regular lives. All those do-gooders know to do as liberals is spend more money to hopefully make everything better, to make the porn addicts and child molesters posing as teachers to see the light with good pay and benefits and to retain them for way too long once their enthusiasm for the job has long left them. Teachers are not good because they are well paid, they are good when they want to do the job of watching other people’s children because they love children. Take a young 27-year-old teacher out to lunch and most of them are beaming with excitement about the opportunity to help guide children toward a better life. Take a middle-aged train wreck out to lunch and talk about their job with kids who have been teaching middle school or high school for ten years and you’ll hear a different story. Add to that career disappointment their own lives of bad marriages, unfulfilled life goals and the realities of aging and what you often find are people who shouldn’t be anywhere near a kid under twenty. Because they are too depressing, and they certainly aren’t worth paying 90K per year.

So I suppose I should thank Kathy Wyenandt for putting all these liberal blue signs of hers up for this District race she is running for. I hadn’t thought about how much I despise people like her who lobby for overpaid public employees for a long time. But it is people like her who allow such corrupt people to be employed at such ridiculous wage rates and have screwed up the property tax rip offs that we have experienced in Butler County, Ohio. For people like her it comes down to wanting to believe that government schools can be good baby sitters. But reality says something far more dangerous, in retaining teachers too long you expose children to all the bitterness and disappointment that mentors can pass on to kids and that often limits the potential that young people have in life, it certainly doesn’t help them. And it is for all that which Kathy Wyenandt thinks she should be elected into a higher office. Liberals like Kathy are dangerous because they believe such things, and that isn’t a problem so long as they are minding their own business. But often their antics cost all of us a lot of money, and if Kathy Wyenandt has one thing on her resume that says what kind of person she is, all you have to look at is her role in passing higher taxes in the Lakota school district. And you’ll know all you need to know.

Kathy Wyenandt, the Tax and Spend Liberal: She led the Lakota levy and what followed was poor performance and teacher raises

The one thing voters need to know about Kathy Wyenandt is that she led the team that increased taxes on residents of Butler County. She is very proud of her efforts at leading the 2013 levy campaign to increase taxes for Lakota residents and listening to her talk, the campaign was a great success. The levy had failed three previous times and the vote in 2013 was promoted by her and her fellow progressive activists aggressively as a necessity for the children. It passed by less than 1% of the vote only after Sheriff Jones was coaxed into supporting the tax increase in the name of safety for kids, which was a complete fabrication of the school’s intentions. What they were really after were raises for the teachers who were already averaging over $70,000 in wages taking their average monthly pay to over $117 per month. I certainly did my part to warn Butler County residents what Kathy Wyenandt and her levy loving friends were up to, and most people listened. That’s when the levy supporters turned to dirty tricks to attempt the tax increase passage. And for that one of Kathy’s fellow helpers had to plead guilty in a court of law.

I’m still waiting for my apology from Joe Rehm, who was a radical Lakota levy activist along with young Kathy Wyenandt who as she says was leading these efforts. I’m sure in her run for the 52nd Ohio House seat that she’ll say she didn’t know Joe, that the penny loafing vandal acted on his own in his little European mini coup as a crusader for “the children,” but then she also says she wants to help tax payers now, and that she supports the Second Amendment as a liberal. So who can believe anything she says? Anyway, Joe had to stand in front of Judge McDonough at 12:30 on November 13th 2013, just days after the smoke had cleared on November 6th and Lakota levy radicals like Wyenandt were celebrating their narrow 1% victory after spending literally hundreds of thousands of dollars promoting the levy over the previous two years by hiring consultants and using the Delphi Technique to try to convert previous no votes into reluctant yeses. The vandal Joe Rehm had been charged for running all over the Lakota school district along with radicalized students and many other crazed levy supporters and were stealing the No Lakota Levy signs that my group had been putting up to oppose the tax increase.

As Kathy obviously knows now that she has had to go get money from all the local unions to put up signs of her own for her current campaign, its expensive. Joe wasn’t the only vandal who stole signs trying to sabotage voter opinion with a show of force against their beloved tax increase but he represented the activism of his leader Kathy Wyenandt well. To their minds the levy was for the children, but to my mind and the other members of the No Lakota Levy opposition, Lakota needed to manage their finances much better. Their average teacher pay was too high which was destroying the already generous budget that Lakota had been given to educate students in the district. I was proposing a 30% pay cut to balance the budget which of course the labor union found appalling. But the essence of the issue was that Lakota teachers were making too much money and blowing up the budget and it was people like Kathy Wyenandt who were saying that teachers didn’t make enough.

I stated from the very beginning of the 2013 Lakota levy campaign that the money from the tax increase had nothing to do with school security, it was all about giving teachers a raise, which they didn’t need. Lakota was getting ready to enter a period of declining enrolment so Lakota should have been looking at closing some schools and laying off teachers, not hiring more and paying them more. Of course, to Kathy Wyenandt and her levy lovers it was like talking to a crazed cannibal cult in the South Pacific on the hunt for a head to appease the gods of education. What I was talking about regarding cost savings wasn’t even in their vocabulary. As the vote neared the levy supporters were getting desperate because they saw still within the community mass resistance to their aggressive tax increases for home owners. That’s when the dirty tricks emerged, one of which Joe Rehm was caught acting as a vandal stealing No Lakota Levy signs attempting to sabotage in the minds of voters any resistance to the tax increase proposal.

Joe Rehm was found guilty. I had the pictures and his license plate posted on this blog for all to see and for the curious I have links back to those old articles. But I never received an apology for the terrible conduct of Kathy Wyenandt’s levy radicals for the thousands of dollars of vandalism her people cost my group, and I never heard her apologize for inflating the Lakota budget needlessly. In 2014, just a few months after the big vote she is so proud of Lakota gave the teachers their big raise which I had warned about. She has cost us all many millions of dollars a year since then and Lakota, just as I said would happen has been declining anyway scholastically. Kathy’s crusade to help pay teachers more money backfired and the district has been on the decline since. The reason is that her value for older more experienced teachers was wrong. It is the young and hungry that help a district with fresh ideas and ambition. The older more expensive teachers get too comfortable and complacent over time, which seems to be the problem at Lakota now that we have too many teachers paid too much money to stay instead of constantly recruiting new talent at the bottom of the pay scale. That is the kind of management that Kathy Wyenandt fought for and the values she plans to bring to the 52nd District as a House of Representative—support for radical vandals, employees paid too highly that require tax increases to cover their wages and a disassociation with performance among workers on a payroll.

Watching her modern campaign for the 52nd District is a lot like watching that old levy campaign she and her activist friends conducted at Lakota back in 2013. She is trying to say all the right things to get elected in a conservative district, she says she’s a gun carrying supporter of the 2nd Amendment yet she wants more gun laws that are in line with typical Democrats. She wants to promote gun safety in the schools, yet she is against arming teachers which is what Sheriff Jones is trying to get done in Butler County. It was Jones who helped push that Lakota levy into passage by the way. Without his support Kathy would have seen a fourth levy loss, and she doesn’t have the endorsement of the Sheriff for her current political move. She’s also saying she wants to fix the over-reliance on local property taxes to fund schools which sounds good, but what she wants is for the state to fix the funding system and to disperse money to districts more evenly. She still wants money for overly paid public employees which is why they are so eager to put her signs out for her hoping she’ll get elected, so they can get a pay raise while everyone else makes 30% to 40% less on average.

Below are links to further information on Kathy Wyenandt and her friends from the old Lakota levy days. That levy was so unpopular I’m surprised she is using it as part of her campaign for a House seat in 2018. It wasn’t that long ago. But after all, she is a liberal. That doesn’t make her evil, just not the kind of person you want to put into an office where management is the priority. Being nice isn’t a qualifying attribute for an office that requires a lot of responsibility. People before politics sounds like a soccer mom trying to get all the kids to agree on where to get ice cream, and with her experience as a mom, I’m sure she has good intentions. But her history with the Lakota levy and her support of higher taxes for overly paid employees, and when those employees got their money, their performance went down anyway and show how out of touch Kathy Wyenandt really is. Of course, she has the endorsement of all the local labor unions. Everyone in public office would want to sit across the table from Kathy Wyenandt and ask for a raise, because she would give it to them without expecting anything in return. But for the rest of us, we know better.

Below are some links to the past for reference: Maybe at the debate in the VOA Learning Center on September 25th in West Chester at 7 PM I’ll get my apology from Kathy for her pro tax people’s vandalism of the No Lakota Levy signs for which Joe was guilty. I’ve been waiting five years for it. If not her accepting direct responsibility maybe at least she will condemn the behavior of her old tax and spend friends. We’ll see, because I will be there to speak with her about it.

Michael Avenatti: The creepy porn lawyer

Tucker Carlson did a great job on his Fox News program interviewing Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Michael Avenatti. It was a very articulate way of explaining a very modern condition in America, a tale of two worlds literally. To those who don’t know the situation, for many months Tucker Carlson has been daring Avenatti to come on his show by calling him a “creepy porn lawyer.” Of course the Democratic operative who is also recently divorced from his wife Lisa Storie has been going on every other network but Fox, so for him to agree to sit down in studio with Tucker was like two kids meeting on the playground for a fight after school. The two do not like each other and have been very vocal about it. Yet Tucker is a good debater and he doesn’t back down from a fight which led to this very interesting segment that told a story of two countries, one that is trying to be great again, another that is like the welfare recipient who buys too many lottery tickets in an attempt to get rich. In this case what Tucker Carlson pulled out of Avenatti was that the lawyer was using Daniels as his lottery ticket into a new life, which is pretty sad.

Michael Avenatti was having a midlife crisis after living a very lavish life with his wife of five years Lisa Storie. When he took on the Daniels case to make a power move into the Democratic Party by going big in trying to be the hero that took down President Trump he made a decision to divorce his wife in the process. With the Stormy Daniels case it gave Avenatti a way to pay for his lavish lifestyle and put him at the front of every legal consideration earning him instant respect among his Democratic peers, so he decided to ride the Stormy Daniels train as far as it would take him and up until the Tucker Carlson segment on Fox News, nobody had called him out on what he was doing. On the surface Avenatti was trying to help a woman who was abused by a person in power, Donald Trump. But in all actuality even if there was sex between Trump and Daniels, it was consensual fun between the two. It only became a problem later when Trump decided to run for president and wanted to keep the porn actress quiet and out of the press when it became obvious that he had a chance to win. After all, the relationship was over ten years old at that point.

However, people like Stormy Daniels are not the most self-confident people in the world and they tend to be easy to exploit. As a porn actress she had already exposed herself to an unsavory lifestyle that might have been fun when she was younger, but now as an older woman with a husband of her own was embarrassing. There isn’t much of a way to put a lifestyle like that behind her, which she might have wanted to do until Avenatti wanted to splash her on the front page of every publication in the country for his own needs for fame, and fortune. Daniels went along with the gig the way a lot of women do who don’t know they have other options in life and did her part, for which Michael Avenatti certainly is getting the better deal. Clearly Avenatti was using Daniels in the worst way possible making it just another sad case of abuse, not the physical kind, but the emotional.

When Tucker Carlson says that Avenatti is a creepy porn lawyer this is what he means, people are creepy who do not function from ethical standards. During the Tucker Carlson interview Avenatti tried to make the entire interview about whether or not people who watch porn should watch Tucker Carlson’s show, which of course would put the television host on shaking moral ground with viewers of his show. Yet the unsaid assumption was that porn is not a trait that people find valuable and while many people may go to the local strip joint to see the woman naked who slept with Donald Trump as a matter of curiosity it is not an accurate measure of the values people have. What kind of people voters will support cannot be measured in porn interest, and Michael Avenatti has miscalculated that trend for himself very negatively.

The Democrats think that Donald Trump won the election because he was a crazy playboy who had a lot of money and celebrity, which is where Michael Avenatti has put all his chips, even leaving his own wife for a chance to shoot for the moon. But what they don’t understand is that there is a lot more to Trump than a playboy who used to run around with crazy women. There is a very serious side to Trump that Avenatti or any Democrat simply don’t have leaving their entire effort to be empty in the minds of voters. Out of all the options Avenatti could have taken on Tucker’s show he attempted a kind of libertarian approach where nobody judges anybody for anything because everyone is guilty, and that is not the qualities of a leader, they are just observations of the human condition. Voters like people who make them aspire to better things, and that is why Trump won in 2018 as opposed to in the days of hanging out with Stormy Daniels attending his golf tournament where they may or may not have had a sexual relationship.

Democrats like Avenatti continue over and over again to believe that the way to appeal in politics is to pander to the animal instincts of all human beings. By parading Stormy Daniels out in front of the world touring naked in the various strip houses across the country Avenatti actually tried to appeal to the #METOO movement saying that as a woman Daniels had a right to any occupation that she wanted to pursue. But what Avenatti doesn’t say is that Stormy Daniels is just another slave of the Democratic Party, exploited like any other demographic for the collective gains of liberals everywhere. The deal is that Stormy gets to have a second chance to sell her body for money and the Democrats get to use her to gain power. It’s no different from Democrats exploiting blacks in poor communities for votes, or promoting open borders hoping that the illegal aliens will vote for people with a “D” next to their names. Avenatti obviously thinks that this Daniels case is going to carry him into a high political office and give him great respect. But in reality Avenatti is just another dumb kid who lived too fast, too early and needs to pay for that lifestyle with compromised ethics. All anybody sees in Michael Avenatti isn’t a great lawyer or crusader against Trump—he’s just a pimp in expensive suits and Stormy Daniels is his whore.

When it is said that Michael Avenatti is a creepy porn lawyer this is what Tucker Carlson is referring to. Avenatti is creepy because he lacks ethics, he’s also creepy because he has shown that he will do anything for power. He’s also creepy because he divorced a pretty nice wife to go on this crazy crusade with a porn actress in an attempt to take down a president that half the country loves, and he did it knowing that he was openly whoring himself out to the political powers of the Democratic Party. What makes a person creepy is that they lack ethics or a moral compass, and Michael Avenatti has shown himself to be lacking both, which was revealed quite dramatically on the Tucker Carlson show in a way that nobody else has had a chance to display. And that is why Fox News does well while everyone else pecks at the surface, and is ultimately why calling Avenatti a “creepy porn lawyer” is one of the most true statements that can be made.

Why Sherrod Brown Is Terrified of Jim Renacci: The king of the lobbyists took in more than $430,000 during 2018

It is really ironic that Sherrod Brown would chose to attack his challenger for the Ohio senate seat in Washington D.C., Jim Renacci over concerns of being a lobbyist. However, likely, that’s all Brown felt he could use to harm Renacci, which isn’t much. True that as a congressman Jim Renacci registered as a lobbyist, but that was for his own private businesses. That is the reason that Renacci got involved with politics to begin with, because when General Motors went bankrupt the government was picking winners and losers on who would keep their dealerships and Jim was selected to have his taken away. So Jim ran against his congressman who had worked to take away his dealership and won, which is how Renacci ended up in congress as a registered lobbyist. Since then there isn’t any evidence that Jim Renacci did any lobbying, other than for himself as a business person seeking justice as a victim of Democratic crony capitalism—which is vastly different from healthy capitalism. On the crony side, nobody in congress is more of a villain than Sherrod Brown. On a list of the top twenty lobbyist recipients can you guess dear reader who is at the top, with over $430,000—Sherrod Brown.

https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/09/12/report-populist-sherrod-brown-is-the-number-one-recipient-of-lobbyist-cash-in-2018-election-cycle/

https://www.opensecrets.org/members-of-congress/industries?cid=N00003535&cycle=2018

Obviously, Sherrod Brown isn’t used to being challenged for his senatorial seat by any competent candidates otherwise he would have been more prepared for Renacci. Its not like Brown isn’t experienced, he’s been in some kind of federal office since 1993 either as a member of the House or Senate. Yet in his mind he didn’t make the connection that he is the one in this senate race that has the lobby problem. Renacci went to Washington to defend his business interests and those of his district, Sherrod Brown went to the Swamp to fill his pockets. That $430,000 number came in just 2018 when he knew for most of the year that Renacci would be his challenger, yet Brown still approved a message attacking his rival of being a lobbyist.

This actually says a lot about Democrats in general. Sherrod Brown represents them well. First, they always accuse others of what they are guilty of. For instance, when Democrats say that it was the Russians that conspired with Republicans to steal the election of 2016, it was really the Democrats who conspired with the FBI to do so. When Democrats say that Republicans and conservatives in general are Neo Nazis and racists, it was the Democrats all along who were both. Hitler learned his methods of fascism from FDR and the Democrats of Woodrow Wilson, not Republicans. The KKK were not Republicans, they were Democrats—all of them. It was Republicans who freed the slaves in America and won the Civil War. And when it comes to being a lobbyist, it is Sherrod Brown who has taken all the money, more than anybody in congress. Not Jim Renacci.

The second thing about Democrats is that they just don’t understand business. As top down government aristocrats by their philosophic Machiavellian persuasion they do not understand capitalism or how money is made. They only seek to take money from those who have made it and to redistribute it to their own power bases. Sherrod Brown for instance doesn’t know what it means to create a business, he has literally been in government service his entire adult life. Whereas Jim Renacci has been building many businesses over the years and created great wealth and jobs as an entrepreneur. He only entered politics because a liberal politician selected him to be a loser in the great game and Renacci ran for office to set things right. And that is what he’s fighting for now. But all someone like Brown sees is a potential rival in the lobby market. If someone like Renacci or Trump isn’t trying to buy influence from politicians, then they are trying to change the game they make livings on, and therefore they are threats to their very Machiavellian existence where $430,000 buys companies a seat at the table of power. But if companies don’t play that game, then someone like Brown will come up with a law that punishes business owners and harms their ability to make jobs and money unless they pay the price.

When Democrats talk tough and espouse socialist tendencies in regard to corporations what they are really doing is setting the stage for a robbery through either taxation or a lobby shakedown and making that theft legal through law and enforced by either the IRS or one of the intelligence agencies. We all saw it happen in live time when Trump was elected to office and Chuck Schumer warned us all that the Swamp wouldn’t be drained, that if Trump thought he was going to take on the FBI, that they could make his life miserable, and even ruin it. Meanwhile FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were doing just that by leaking stories to The Washington Post and The New York Times to put Trump on his heels and force him to play ball. The same happens within the IRS all the time, a call from a powerful senator in the Beltway can ruin any company with fines, fees and lost time document searches as agents ransack offices with no recourse to protect the company. So what do companies do, especially large corporations, they pay the price to people like Sherrod Brown to keep the power of government away from their attempts at conducting business and generating wealth.

If it were really to be known why so many on both sides of politics are angry at Trump it is because his very existence threatens this financial racket, for which Sherrod Brown is the king. There are names on their from both parties, but Brown is unquestionably the king of lobbying. Yet Trump has not backed down and is fighting the good fight and for the first time in many decades there is a feeling within the business communities that the government isn’t their enemy that must be paid off but can be a partner. And that is why there is over 4% GDP growth. For politicians like Brown he sees the writing on the wall, his scheme as a senator in Washington D.C. is under threat and Jim Renacci is Trump’s hand-picked challenger to change that culture by taking away the seat of one of the most corrupt bureaucrats on Capitol Hill, Senator Sherrod Brown.

Brown has a lot to worry about, polling has Jim Renacci virtually tied with the old Senator and that is with three debates and two months of campaigning to do. And if that is the best that Brown has, because honestly Jim Renacci is about as squeaky clean and good as anybody can hope to find in politics, its going to be hard for Brown to make an argument against Renacci for which Brown is the guiltiest in all of politics of doing himself. In so many ways the battle between Jim Renacci and Sherrod Brown is a window into the entire 2018 election, the new against the old the businessman against the government thief, the honest against the corrupt. The Republican against the Democrat and the one who wants to make the game more honest, and the one who wants to live off the dishonesty. Sherrod Brown is everything we hate about politics and for the first time in his entire career that spans over three decades in government, he has a real challenger in Jim Renacci and that has everyone who has been up to no good, terrified.

New Poll Shows Why Jim Renacci Will Beat Sherrod Brown in Ohio Senate Race: A statistical dead heat from a liberal sampling

I would think that with all the drama being created about possible congressional seats that are in close races giving Democrats hope for the upcoming midterms that the news would be reported the other way. But then again, of course not. One of the biggest races in the country which is threatening one of the Senate’s biggest liberals is that between Sherrod Brown and the conservative challenger Jim Renacci. Where was this news on Fox and the other networks? It’s one of the biggest political stories in the nation yet nobody is reporting it. Can you imagine the earthquake heard around the world if Sherrod Brown fell on election night in Ohio to a handpicked Trump senatorial candidate? Yet only 4% is all that stands between them taken from a liberal poll at the start of September 2018. As it stands Brown has 46% to Renacci’s 42% which is within the margin of error and can be said to be a tie statistically speaking. In the case of this poll sampling, the name recognition and demographics favor Brown by a lot, so to have a statistical tie is big news. Probably the biggest news of the election because it says a whole lot about the true nature of the midterm race.

http://innovationohio.org/2018/09/06/new-poll-shows-tied-gubernatorial-race-close-races-up-and-down-the-ballot/

Sherrod Brown is a liberal in the Senate at the level of an Al Franken or Elizabeth Warren—perhaps even as liberal as Bernie Sanders. In conservative Ohio Brown has managed to stay in office because of the large union vote north of Columbus. But just two years ago many of those union voters, particularly in Cuyahoga County had Trump signs in front of their homes meaning things have changed for the liberal Senator. Renacci is cut from the same cloth as Trump and isn’t an anti-union guy meaning that those typical Brown supporters can feel good about Renacci if they want to vote for a piece of Trump, who had won the state with a roughly double-digit margin over Hillary Clinton. It’s a new political era in Ohio and Brown’s long run as a sitting senator is coming to an end.

There is still a long road to the election, but this particular election has the feel of a football game where a favored team is on the ropes holding on to a slim point advantage. To protect their victory they have to go into a prevent defense which is usually a ticket to a loss from a team that can afford to take risks. In Renacci’s case, he is the aggressor and he has Trump on the sidelines. Brown can’t afford to make Trump supporters angry because he is going after the same voters in many cases that gave Trump that big lead in Ohio. So by attacking Renacci he attacks Trump and that is dangerous for Brown.

There are three debates planned between the two candidates and this is where Brown is very vulnerable, because Renacci has a business background specifically in accounting and can talk numbers in a way that Brown needs to avoid. So in looking at the polling data supplied by Innovation Ohio I would project Renacci to be around 7% above Brown in all actuality. Of course voter turnout will be the key in the end, but at this point Republicans are just as energized in Ohio as Democrats. The problem with the Democrats is that they are at the disadvantage of trying to hold a vulnerable seat as opposed to being able to loosely defend themselves, which is the case of many Republicans like Ted Cruz in Texas facing challenges. Only this race in Ohio is a much bigger story. While Ted Cruz will surely end up with a comfortable victory, Sherrod Brown is poised to lose to Renacci. There is too much time on the clock for Brown to defend his seat against a very sharp Jim Renacci, and a very aggressive candidate at that. Knowing a bit about Renacci that I’ve been able to learn over the course of this year is that he is very competitive. Like Trump he will do whatever it takes to win, he will pound the pavement, give the speeches, energize his base, he’ll do the work. The same can’t be said about Brown. He has grown to take his seat for granted except for election years and he is already on his heels in uncomfortable ways. If he’s hoping to run out the clock on Renacci, that is a sure strategy to defeat. But if he wants to fight Renacci, and indirectly Trump himself, then he risks alienating his union support. Brown is in a really bad position.

The difference with Renacci however as opposed to Trump is that he is pretty mild-mannered and is very likable. He’s a traditional business person who has done things in life for the right reasons and when people meet him, that is what comes across. He’s just so likeable, so the more he goes around Ohio and meets people, the instant association with Trump is a plus, but for his own standing, Jim Renacci is just a good person, and a dedicated fighter which people can trust. That is what is the biggest danger to Brown over the coming two months of the political chess game. Brown for so long has managed to be that “other” senator which allowed Ohioans to feel like a bipartisan state with federal representation. Rob Portman is the conservative senator in the state who doesn’t make much by way of waves, and Brown has been that more blue-collar representative. But times have changed and Renacci has a real blue-collar background which gives voters who lean to the political right as blue-collar union types a person they can vote for without betraying the union hall. For them Renacci is a win, win. For Brown that is a nightmare.

Without question the Ohio senate race is the biggest indicator of Trump’s strength as president and the fact that Renacci is doing so well against the entrenched Brown says everything. But with two months to go, all Brown can really do is try to keep everything in front of him in a prevent position. But that won’t win this game at all. Against a weaker candidate, it might, but not with Jim Renacci. Jim is just the kind of guy who can beat Brown and the old Senator knows it. If the poll had come from Fox News or even the Republican party these numbers might not mean so much, but from Innovation Ohio, its huge news. They are not friendly to conservatives in any way.

I can proudly say that my bet has been on Jim Renacci from the very beginning. When I first learned the strategy of what Trump wanted to do in Ohio I was very supportive of it. And over the months that have followed it was easy to see how smart it was. Renacci is not a loser and he is committed to winning that Democratic held Senate seat and there isn’t much Brown can do to stop him. And that should be the lead story on every network, even CNN. But like any crowd who is rooting for a team they think is a sure thing and are trying to hold a lead against a much more aggressive team, they can only sit there in silence and hope things stay the way they are. But in their gut, they know that’s not the case. Their team is going to lose and all they can do to meet that reality is to sit there in silence and pray.

How Alex Jones and David Icke Contribute to a First-Rate Mind: Just because things are considered conspiracies, doesn’t mean they are false

When critics of mine say that you can’t listen to my topics on politics or other serious matters because I also cover topics of conspiracy and pseudoscience, they are speaking of their own limitations, not the actual way that information is obtained. And to that aspect I do find that people like Alex Jones and England’s David Icke contribute to the advancement of understanding by simply asking outlandish questions then seeking evidence to support it. What critics are saying about themselves when they insist that only certain types of information are relevant to any discussion, such as those endorsed by institutional behavior, but not information accepted by institutional understanding they are actually pointing out how misunderstandings are perpetuated in civilization. My method of obtaining truth to anything is to take in information wherever it comes from then using deductive reasoning to chip away at the truth. It’s what I consider a first-rate mind who can take all the puzzle pieces wherever they come from and assemble them into the facts we must all work with. It’s a method I use professionally which is far superior to my peers in industry. When I’m trying to solve a problem, I don’t just look at the accepted institutional evidence because honestly, if someone wants to hide something, the way to do it is to hide it behind institutional trust. And this is becoming increasingly difficult to hide from people these days because information has become so decentralized, and that is why conspiracy theorists such as Alex Jones and David Icke are so popular today. They ask lots of outlandish questions and make proposals that sound crazy to the typical institutionalists. But if taken as just part of a pile of evidence, there are useful concepts introduced that advance thought, which is why I never disregard anything until truth proves something false.

I’m a big believer of brainstorming and I can say from firsthand experience that my methods really piss people off. Such as in business, if I am trying to solve a really complicated problem I invite everyone I can think of to a 15 to 30-minute meeting, from the highest in a company to what might be considered the lowest according to an organizational chart. I ignore the organizational chart because my goal is not to appease the people who are high up on the chart, but to get to the truth, so I bring in everyone, treat them with equal respect and pick their brains and see what they can throw up on one of my “white board meetings,” where anything and everything is considered. I often get a mess of crazy ideas but mixed into them all is some grain of the truth that if you sift through it leads to the answer you are seeking. I look at it like mining for gold. Gold never comes out looking wonderful, you have to dig for it and clean it up before its ready to use. And that is my method for obtaining obscure answers to complicated problems. It is the method of the way any first-rate mind would proceed, and I can say that over the years the people who most hate it are those who are high up on an organizational chart, because they either want to believe that the common people under them are stupid, or that they (as higher ups) have something to hide that they want to keep concealed from the people lower on the organizational chart. And that is exactly what is going on within our own Federal government presently, and why Donald Trump is so hated, because he has a similar method of obtaining information. Its quite a common thing among successful business people to have a decentralized flow of information flowing to them as an executive. Even the guy who pushes brooms all day long has valuable things to say about their observations, so nothing should be left off the table.

When David Icke puts forth that a reptilian race is controlling a few families on planet earth and is trying to flow all politics through them there is some interesting things to sift through. Humans certainly do behave in a strangely maniacal way toward ritual and superstition. Even so-called wise people do believe that spiritual aide can help them overcome earthly challenges over their rivals so that belief comes from somewhere. Until we know where, we have to consider the possibilities. Is it an alien group of reptile people? Who knows. What matters is that some people believe them to be a factor so we have to consider the who, what, why, when and where as to how. Are the villains actually reptilian people? I say it doesn’t matter, but what does is the propensity of some to cleave to a social elite status that then interrupts proper management of our civilization. And of that observation, David Icke has done some fantastic work—it doesn’t matter if its aliens or a bunch of people who went to Yale and wish to protect that institutions reputation with skewed social data. The impact on the world is the same.

When I started years ago my public education crusade my assertion was that public schools were focused on one primary thing, brainwashing children into liberalism and they gained permission from the parents by offering free babysitting services making it all too easy for the programing to take effect. When I said such a thing, critics called it a tin hatted conspiracy on the level of David Icke or Alex Jones. But reality has shown me to be completely correct and it doesn’t sound so crazy these days, because the evidence has been quite apparent. The reason is that information has been decentralized and the state no longer can suppress the data from voters. For instance, my home district of Lakota schools has thrown many millions of dollars of payroll at teachers yet the performance of the students has gone down instead of up. Paying teachers more money has never been a direct contributor to the quality of the public-school system because the schools were never really about education. Past the fifth grade the emphasis of public education has been to fit children into some social demographic and process them into institutional controls, so test scores are not reflective of the reality because the goal was always assimilation, not education. When I said it, it scared people, but these days more people are ready to admit the mess that public education has become. Even though people didn’t want to admit it, when I said the things I did about public education the institutionalists wanted to believe it was all a conspiracy theory, but as it turned out, I was more than correct, even in the early days of speculation.

The controversy of Alex Jones going to Washington D.C. and all the trouble he brought with him is just another example. I thought Alex Jones was baiting Marco Rubio with the whole hand on the shoulder thing. There wasn’t much that Rubio could do to fight a guy like Jones, there was no way to win without being willing to slug it out with Jones. That is why Alex Jones has been taken down from all social media platforms, because the belief is from the institutionalists, for which Marco Rubio is certainly one of them, is that they make the world. Jones was a reminder that there were forces shaping the present world that were outside of those institutional limits, and that’s why Rubio went to the default defense of trying to pretend he didn’t know who Alex Jones was. It was Rubio’s way of saying that if the institutions don’t recognize you, that you have nothing the world wants; therefore, I don’t know you. But when Alex Jones called Rubio a bathhouse frat boy, there was an accuracy to that statement that cuts across all party politics, and ultimately points to the reason that Marco lost the primary election to Trump.

Information, wherever it comes from is not dirty or even crazy. I have found that even the most disjointed mind sometimes produces great intelligence even if the reality of possessing that knowledge does make them a little eccentric and off the wall. It takes a first-rate mind to take all that information in and to put it to good use, and those that can are wonderful problem solvers. Those who are afraid of that truth call information they don’t like conspiracies, as if to marginalizing it out of usefulness. But the evidence says that you can never give institutional knowledge a monopoly on results. Even if the information comes from someone who believes that a reptile species is controlling us all, or that ancient aliens once settled the planet, or that the Illuminati is asking for blood sacrifices in modern politics to skew election results in their favor, there are aspects in truth to everything, even the most outlandish story. But it takes a good mind to extract that value. And just because a majority of people do not possess such skills does not make the usefulness of those skills less valid. Only more so.
