Jennifer Baker’s Attack on Chief Herzog: When the media tries to make a story for political insurrection

From the beginning I thought the case against West Chester Police Chief Joel Herzog in Ohio was nothing but a power move from two subordinates to knock off their boss using the modern cancel culture temperament as a platform for their own success, at his expense. As it turns out, Chief Herzog will be able to put this ridiculous event behind him and get back to work, the report on the investigation into the accusations against him is complete, one of the accusers Jamie Hensley quit his police captain job on June 23rd as the report was starting to show that he misstated the truth, and the other Capt. Gutman will remain uncomfortably on the force and will forever have to be that odd guy in the room who took a shot at his boss, and failed. Those two guys accused Herzog of using colorful language in public and private that is suddenly grounds for termination in today’s ultra-sensitive beta culture but was customary for the entire course of human civilization among alpha males. The only thing Herzog was guilty of was living long enough to be in a top job when the media and their communist insurgents in the Democrat Party decided to use a new strategy to overturn America and defund the police any way possible.

But the most concerning thing I noticed during this multiweek investigation into Herzog was to the level Jennifer Edwards Baker bit into the story from Fox 19. I understand aggressive reporting, but like we have seen from many members of the media over several issues, especially during the Trump years in the White House, was that as unelected bureaucrats, the media are attempting to shape stories for political purposes instead of reporting the stories as they happen. I doubt Jennifer identifies too heavily in favor of a political party, but she is part of that new reporter culture who knows what her bosses want for a story, and those executives in media are very much radicalized toward the objectives of political insurrection. The two West Chester cops heard the liberal dog whistle espoused by the media all over the nation to defund the police, the attempted impeachment of President Trump, the behavior of the FBI and DOJ acting against their boss the President and almost getting away with it, so they took a swipe at their own boss, Chief Herzog to take him out. Reporters like Baker at Fox 19 see the story developing in a well run community that is affluent like West Chester, Ohio and wants to portray that government as “good ol’ boy, backward run” so that they can inspire change, a larger government with more checks and balances to fulfill an overall political strategy that they are teaching in colleges these days. West Chester is a target for someone like Baker and her bosses at Fox 19 because they are small government and successful. So anytime those conditions are present, there is a media outlet looking to make a story out of tearing all that down.

Baker was in fact obsessed with the story tweeting about it regularly driving the narrative in the way that the national media was trying to push Covid-19 or the impeachment attempts by Democrats to rid themselves of President Trump. We were supposed to believe that if Herzog said things in private about women’s boobies and the racial observations regarding potential terrorists that he should be fired for having opinions and thoughts. The goal of these types of things is to change behavior so that any resemblance of a white masculine culture is eradicated. Even if Herzog did manage to keep his job through the blame game and power plays of subordinates, then he would be muzzled to allow future aggressors to gain strength for an eventual overthrow of the complete police department as a culture. If left to Jennifer Baker and Fox 19 the future West Chester Police Department would be run by Rocky Horror Picture Show drag queens rather than rough and tough alpha males who understand how to be tough, yet compassionate, but do notice that people look a certain way good or bad and can determine the difference.

Its not that the media was looking for justice in this case, they were hoping to inspire change. I caught Channel 5 doing the same thing about a month ago when Karin Johnson was encouraging Black Lives Matter protestors to go up into West Chester to take their marches there. I know Karin a bit as I’ve caught her before doing such activism with the Lakota school levy campaign. I understood her position, she’s an East Coast girl, used to be a cheerleader, she loves the whole school spirit thing. She doesn’t think about communism being taught in public schools, she thinks of making out with the quarterback after a football game and the sense of family that being popular in school can give a person, so she was an activist as a member of the media for the school levy. Even her cameraman argued with me about the validity of the tax increase in my driveway while doing interviews, so their left leaning radicalism is not a secret. It was easy to see her fingerprints on inspiring the Black Lives Matter protestors to come to West Chester. If not for the media coverage, the question should be asked, would the protestors even have shown up in Cincinnati?  I would say that the protests would have fizzled out in a few days on their own, but the media kept fanning the flames for their own agenda, and Karin fanned them in the direction of West Chester on purpose, because she wanted to report that story.

And that’s what Jennifer Baker was after with this blatant attack on Chief Herzog. Its bad enough that there are bottom feeder attorneys out there who are trying to bring down people like the Chief based on accusations from subordinates, but when you add the political agenda from the media which then feeds attorneys to take such activism against police departments to exacerbate the national movement of delegitimizing the police as a bunch of racists by exploiting power players like Hensely, Gutman and others to act and do the work of liberal activists who are very motivated in weakening all police departments around America, for political reasons of complete insurrection, we are looking at a well-established blob of activism that has no one single villain, but a system that is trying to overthrow our way of life. I doubt Jennifer thinks about big things like that while she’s trying to tear down the West Chester Police Department, all she wants is a pat on the head from her bosses at Fox 19. But the intent is just as malicious. She willingly played her part in an attack on the police that is very much part of our modern political insurrection that is threatening all our lives. I actually enjoyed reading some of the accusations about Herzog. I know I am willing to support more “old school” police officers instead of the type who make the “beta” cut and are so squeaky clean that you have to worry that they might be more concerned with “style” than substance. And when it comes to enforcing the law, we need fearless people who can tell a lot about people with a casual glance. What Fox 19 and the rest of the media want, is a cop paralyzed by fear of their potential reporting and being replaced by subordinates based on what they say—not what they do. And I personally don’t appreciate the media activism.

Mike DeWine’s “Dereliction of Duty”: Ohio’s Version of Colonel Kurtz that must be dealt with

I think the term “dereliction of duty” was legally watered down during the Clinton Administration years to the point where it lost its meaning. Yet, it does mean that a service member has willfully refused to perform their duties (or follow a given order) or has incapacitated themselves in such a way that they cannot perform their duties essentially vacating their post contrary to regulations, and under those definitions we certainly find that Governor Mike DeWine of Ohio has done all that to the point where impeachment is the only correct way out. Without a correction of the downward spiral of trust that people have of public office we are likely to lose it forever. So avoiding the subject because of the politization of the term in high profile cases such as President Clinton, then the revenge that Democrats tried to apply it to current President Trump isn’t going to solve the problem. Governor DeWine for a while now has shown severe “dereliction of duty” and action must be taken by the legislature to get Ohio back under control again. While DeWine’s actions over the Covid-19 virus perception has been incredible, any failure to reel him back into reality will harm terribly the future of all law and order in the state of Ohio.

This isn’t a new problem and I have been thinking about DeWine for a long time. Like many Republicans, I could tell stories about what a good guy he has been. I don’t know him well enough to call him a friend, but I understand why many Republicans consider him as such. I also get that this is an election year and that Republicans want to unite the party behind President Trump, to get him re-elected and to deliver Ohio to the Trump camp with electoral votes. However, I also understand that DeWine has not been behaving as a Republican and has gone rogue in the executive branch acting more like a dictator and activist than a part of the checks and balances of government and he needs to be stopped. And from the top of the law to the beat on the street, everyone has been scratching their heads on how to solve this very real problem that has culminated into the mask mandates that are now part of the embarrassing administration reaction to Covid-19.

My thoughts on DeWine were that something had happened to his logical mind as a result of his relationship with Amy Acton, his Health Director. It wouldn’t be the first time where an employer had feelings for someone working for them, whether the reaction were sexual in nature, or just purely psychological, it was obvious that DeWine had some ill advised relationship with Amy Acton that was actually ruining people’s lives due to the Governor’s bad decisions which spawned from that relationship. But within the inner sanctums of Ohio government from many sources, sources that were very upset that the Governor had bypassed them in the legislature to push them out of any management of the Covid-19 crises I was being told that the situation was far worse and the sanity of Governor DeWine was in serious question. It was being proposed that the crises of Covid-19 invented by the media or not had crushed DeWine intellectually and he was retreating to his Christian background to make policy decisions. The specific problem with DeWine was that he kept insisting that his number one priority constitutionally as governor in Ohio was to protect those who couldn’t protect themselves, to protect those most vulnerable. While that sounds good and might be a good polling question that is asked without the context of what it means, the term could mean anything as determined by the governor’s own judgment. That is why we have a legislature, to help a mind like the governor’s stay on course through a crisis. But he has ostracized everyone and has painted himself into a corner, which has then led Ohio into a major economic crisis which he has caused all by himself.

To answer my question about Governor DeWine I was invited by several VIPs to listen to the governor up close and behind the scenes. Like I said, I don’t like to kiss and tell, but what I discovered about DeWine under pressure shortly after it was revealed that Amy Acton had stepped down from her role as his Health Director was a rudderless politician that sounded an awful lot like Colonel Kurtz from the movie ‘Apocalypse Now.’ DeWine essentially attacked anybody who questioned his motives leaving the people in the room with him stuck between wanting to beat the shit out of him, and wanting to honor his position in that high office. People who needed to clamp down on DeWine were frozen as to what to do, they were lost. Nothing in their lives had prepared them for the insanity of the moment and it was clear that the old prosecutor in DeWine was using his reputation to ward off any correction of his current behavior. And when pressed, he kept coming back around to his primary job as governor was to help those who couldn’t help themselves, which again was a completely ambiguous job description. Anybody could claim to be helpless under such ill-defined parameters and essentially as long as the Covid-19 virus had no cure, then DeWine could claim forever that he needed emergency powers to fight it—alone. He had no intention of letting the legislature help him with the problem, which is how we arrive at the “dereliction of duty” problem and why now after so many billions of dollars lost from the Ohio economy, we must take action to remove Governor DeWine from office.

DeWine, because he didn’t let anybody help him, which was a choice, is responsible for all the lawsuits that are being imposed on government because of his bad decisions and the leadership that Amy Acton took Ohio under her care. The DeWine administration essentially followed the global models for Covid-19 and reacted to bad data that destroyed many jobs and lives in the process, and now it is known in hindsight that those statistics were wrong. The trouble is, now that the severity of the virus is known DeWine is still insisting on the same measures of reacting to it that he did before, which is clearly an attempt by him to hold on to his emergency powers. And because of that, we are now suffering through continued economic depravity, the mandate in many Ohio counties to wear masks in mid-summer heat, which is again discouraging to economic recovery and the personal comfort of Ohioans all of which will impact the long term growth of Ohio as a destination for business transactions. And to justify all that failure of judgment, DeWine continues to point out that people are in danger of their very lives when clearly that is not true. There is nothing to indicate that Covid-19 is dangerous or is even presently considered a “pandemic.” The officials who have claimed Covid-19 to be a “pandemic” particularly in the World Health Organization have been discredited as the Trump administration has moved away from those relationships for obvious reasons. Members of America’s CDC are still doing damage control from their failures as health professionals to properly deal with the severity of Covid-19, greatly overblowing the statistical analysis to justify their own existence, so there is nothing for Governor DeWine to justify his actions, except that he has simply lost his mind, and in the process, cut out all those who could have helped him find it again. And that is why he has been “derelict in his duty” to his very office, and why for the preservation of that office in the future, he must be removed. His polling is not as high as he thinks it is, or to the level the media is reporting. But regardless of that, law and order must prevail, and his actions have irreparably damaged that relationship to the point where only removal will bring trust to the system of Ohio government once again.

After Covid-19, We’ll Never Trust Doctors the Same Way Again: Coming to terms with great falsehoods

Look at this loser from Twitter who was trying to infer to me that unless I was an official, doctor in the medical industry, then I was not qualified to talk about Covid-19. The context of the Twitter string in the conversation was that it was revealed over the weekend once again that the CDC had been manipulating the numbers to make everything look bigger and worse than it really was so the media could take the info and run with it to attempt to scare everyone into staying in their homes to stifle the economy and bring about a manipulation of the next presidential election. According to that guy, if you are not a doctor you are not qualified to have an opinion on the matter and we are all supposed to just listen to them like they are the best people on earth. Well, I couldn’t disagree more.

The current strategy around the world from the political class is to use these doctors to create a climate of Marxism—it’s a power grab using people we normally trust to sell the scheme and its really been a disgusting enterprise. The game works like this, government gives out grants that the doctors want, so the doctors will say anything to get the grants, and thus, the doctors become spokesman for Marxism knowingly or unknowingly. And before you know it, perfectly normal people are being forced to wear masks in public just so they can go to ride a roller coaster somewhere, and losers like this Twitter guy are the new useful idiots of world domination of anti-capitalist forces directed by government for the needs of government.

Most of the people I deal with in life are either enormously wealthy people or are thoroughly educated—or both. And if any of those people were tortured under the most vile methods until their very lives were squeezed out of them I doubt seriously that any of them would say about me that I lack intelligence on any subject proposed at any time in the history of the world. More than that, I have never had a conversation with anybody in all my years, among many thousands of people over any of that time where I walked away feeling intellectually inferior. I know a lot of doctors and when I need a specialized opinion on something, I might listen to their advice, but I would never dream to make them the tell all on any topic, and to give them the keys to my car to drive my life over a cliff without question. That is why I knew at the beginning of all this that the whole Covid-19 thing was bullshit in the extreme. I was saying it before anybody else, way before any of the media guys jumped on the bandwagon. I gave them room on that wagon, many of them had larger platforms than I did to get the news out, but I was certainly the first and that was because of my experience on the matter, and ability to think for myself that saw it way before anybody else did.

It has been sad to see Fox News bend their network employees to endorsements driving the whole mask wearing change agency that the rest of corporate compliance has accepted so willingly because they want to believe that these medical doctors are not ruinous in their intentions. Sean Hannity of all people should see the fire under the smoke, but he has been out there buying into the mask wearing to “slow the spread.’ There is no spread, there is no Covid-19 threat, there never has been. People still die of unusual things, but due to 2020 politics Covid-19 was designated as the catch all for medical concern for lots of government reasons and they hid the truth behind a natural trust that we have in the medical industry. Driven deep into our minds for decades is the notion that doctors go to school for a long time, they read a lot more than the rest of us, so they probably know more than we do about things. So when they say something about anything, we should listen. Well, that doesn’t work for me. There is nobody in my life and there never will be who will know more about what’s good for me or my family than me, and that is because nobody has done the work in knowing things more than I have, even among what society considers the most educated. It was always clear to me that Covid-19 was a political power grab rather than anything of real danger to anybody.

Before Covid-19 I might have listened to what the CDC said, or what the opinions of the World Health Organization would say about things, but not anymore. They have shown me how political they are, and to what extent they are willing to lie to get access to political funding. I’ll never trust them again. They have literally wrecked the world and brought great misery to just about every living person across the face of the planet and they have done it as an organization meaning many of them followed each other to the same conclusions trying to sell Covid-19 as a game changing pandemic when in reality it was far from any kind of life threatening virus. They were hoping that it would be, but they took whatever came down the pike during the election year because they viewed it as their last best chance to get rid of President Trump off the world stage and push his supporters into a corner so they wouldn’t be so bold during the upcoming election. The intent all along was to give people a crises, a literal fear of death, to stop the freedom movement that was spreading in just about every country around the world, not just in the United States, but in England, Iran, France, Hong Kong—everywhere all at the same time. The governments of the world were coming under fire by their own people demanding less restrictions on their lives, so government turned to the medical class, which they control through funding, and pushed them to sell Covid-19 as a danger, and that’s how we found ourselves at this place in history.

People like that guy who wrote me want to justify what suckers they have been by slapping at anybody who isn’t a medical official because they want to use that status to hide the stupidity of the whole scam. But I don’t honor such degrees as a direct sign of intelligence. In the big picture, it was obvious to me from the start, so it was easy to see. For people trained not to think for themselves and to trust what the government tells them even if they have managed to do well financially for themselves or have two or three doctorate degrees to their credit, they were at a disadvantage because they trust the system too much, and were blinded by that trust, so I don’t blame them for being suckers on Covid-19. But they don’t get to ride some moral wave of justice as the Covid-19 cases go up, because it all comes down to how those cases are counted. Its always about the measurement and when the measures assist government at the expense of the people who support government but are suddenly hiding under their covers like cowards over a little virus, then we have something like a justifiable war in the works. And the medical industry has egg on its face that will never come off now.

Trump at Mount Rushmore: The fight for tomorrow

I knew it was going to be a good night when Air Force One was doing its flyover of Mount Rushmore to a soundtrack of ACDC and Guns & Roses. Naturally, a guy like me was riveted by every broadcast moment of President Trump coming to the Black Hills of South Dakota, a state I love a lot and the state of my favorite governor in the world, Kristie Noam for a fireworks show and speech. It did not let me down and I thought about a lot of things during it. It was when President Obama had cancelled the fireworks at Mount Rushmore that inspired me to start attending Tea Party meetings in 2009 and to turn myself into something of a platform for Republican support. At the time I was getting very valid nibbles out of Hollywood for a career there, the nibbles were in the form of a stuntman due to my bullwhip work and as a writer. That was in the years of 2006 to 2008 and by 2009 the requests for me in Hollywood were getting to the point where I had invitations to live there. So committing myself to the 20 yard line end zone politics was no small matter. When Obama closed down the fireworks at Mount Rushmore to say it pissed me off is an understatement. My reaction was to buy a fancy cruiser motorcycle and travel the country to see what I wanted to save about it, and it started me on that patriotic journey that is now millions and millions of words down the road now, with a lot left in the wake. The fireworks returning with President Trump to Mount Rushmore was the perfect gift to my mind for all the hard work, yet even so, I had some deep thoughts about it all that I enjoyed enormously. By the time the end came with a jazzy rendition of Battle Hymn of the Republic, I had a firm idea of what this 4th of July weekend was all about. Trump’s speech sounded like something I’d write; he certainly went further than any other president in history to tackling the problems that are in front of us.

I feel sorry for liberals who came to their political views in life because they come from broken families our countries where Marxism and hard structured communism were the blue light special of the day. Not all of us grew up with the privilege of good parents and role models when we were kids and in America, we allowed liberalism to seep into all our institutions, especially education, to bridge the gap between where they were in the world and where they needed to be to find freedom and success. But, instead of paying us back for our civility toward them, liberals have revealed that they want nothing but to destroy America for the rest of us who did have parents who cared about us and were given enough structure in our lives to live above the line lives as Americans. One thing is obvious especially in places like South Dakota, people there are normal. There were no stupid social distancing mandates at the Mount Rushmore fireworks, and very few people willing to bend the knee to the ridiculous masks people are wearing for protection from Covid-19. Even as this event was happening Trump’s kid, Don Jr stayed behind because his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle had tested positive for Covid-19 and the media was reporting it as if she had just received the death sentence of AIDS.

It didn’t stop there, most of the afternoon it was reported that protestors were blocking access to the fireworks site, Antifa radicals, stringy haired greaseballs, and Black Lives Matter supports which the more I thought about the images reminded me more and more of the terrorist group ISIS in the Middle East recently in the way they advanced their platform and destroyed history to gain control of people’s minds in the future. But the police didn’t full around in South Dakota, and the protestors were easily removed. It was a reminder of how the next steps in this ideological war would go, once Americans, the real Americans, those who appreciate the country for the doors of freedom it can open no matter what race or sex, realize the tune of the song that the political left is playing, they rally behind to meet the challenge. That certainly describes myself when I first got involved in the Tea Party movement then doing everything I could to get Trump elected in 2016. When pushed and spit at, most good Americas see quickly what must be done, and they see what is happening now. I wasn’t the only one happy about the fireworks in the Black Hills. The people in the audience at that event got it, they understood the significance of the flyovers, the speeches, and the overall meaning of the setting there at Mount Rushmore.

As I said, most liberals grew up without the proper parental benefits and the system we allowed them to create to get them there have failed. They have taken our tax dollars for public education for instance and turned our schools into centers for Marxist study. When I said all this over a decade ago, most people like WLW’s Bill Cunningham couldn’t deal with that idea. At that time I did a lot of radio on that station and the argument was very uncomfortable for people like him. He couldn’t bring himself to believe that public education was taken over by socialism. Like a lot of people in that radio audience, they just wanted the sports scores in life, they didn’t want to deal with a complete failure of our institutions that had been taken over by Marxist ideology, because we had allowed them to be out of compassion for their place in life. I can say that in Cunningham’s mind, he didn’t know his father, he was raised by a single mother—actually in a very similar way to my friend the great George Lang who is the future senator of Ohio’s 4th district. Guys like them did not have the benefits of good family structure, so they relied on the American institutions to make good lives for themselves. But they are the exceptions, not the rule. Most liberals don’t want to be fixed as people into becoming Americans, they just want to get rid of the measure, they want to bring it all down and that is their shocking intention, and the truth of the matter which Trump captured well in his speech.

Trump talks a lot about the silent majority and they greatly do outnumber the people out there who will vote in this election. In places like South Dakota they are easy to see. The media tries to make liberalism larger than it really is by keeping their media centers in the cities where liberalism has crushed people’s spirits, they don’t often get to see the kind of fanfare that goes on in places like Mount Rushmore every day. So the images, speeches and temperament of the audience were shocking to the rest of the world who have been thinking they were going to win after the Covid-19 shutdowns, the advancements of Marxism recently through the “cancel culture” and race riots. And ultimately the impact to the economy that coronavirus and the blue state governors had unleased on us all to destroy football, baseball, and even NASCAR. They thought they had us, and had their foot on our throats. But what they saw at the Mount Rushmore fireworks were lots of people like me, who were awake and yearning for patriotism who were more resolute than ever. It was not the reaction that the liberals were hoping for and their concern of the effectiveness was quite evident.

Public School Reopenings in Ohio during Covid-19: Every hour that kids are away, the better off they’ll be

In my school district in Ohio, Lakota which has been discussed so much over the last several years, I can’t really fault the return to school plans that were recently unveiled by the superintendent Matt Miller. What’s he going to do after all? The three plans he put forth, which I had already heard brewing from Governor DeWine himself a few weeks ago when the governor stated that most of Ohio’s school boards around the state planned to punt on this issue anyway, are kind of ridiculous. Plan A brings kids back to class, but they have to reduce the cafeterias to 50% capacity, separate the desks by 3 feet, and the students and teachers have to wear those stupid masks all day—which is just ridiculous. Plan B has kids coming to school every other day with the same kind of distancing restrictions, which again is another government mandate that teaches children submission to state authority and does little to solve any viral problems. And Plan C is 100% remote learning. In essence, it gives the radical teacher’s unions everything they want, more days off, less kids in class to teach, and the ability to wear masks all day to hide their faces and restrict their coffee stained teacher breaths from contaminating all the innocent children who might otherwise be forced to succumb to the odor. That is pretty much how it will be for most government schools opening in the fall of 2020 and I’m OK with it.

The less time a kid spends in one of these public schools is more brain capacity they get back. I have been warning about the state mandated socialist curriculum that all public schools have been teaching for decades. I have spent the last 20 years fighting for a defunding of the nonsense to hopefully save a few kids from the meat grinder of stupidity that is government schools. Government can’t even build and run a park, let alone educate the next generation. And that failure has been on full display during these recent race riots. I would say that 99% of the children coming out of public schools do not completely survive the government school education experience intact. They end up as adults as diminished people. 1% or less fall through the cracks and end up as something worthwhile. But to my measure a good adult trained in public education is not a loser who just does what the state tells them to be, someone who doesn’t shoot very high in life, mows their grass once a week through the summer, marries two or three spouses in their lifetime, and turns their children over to state control—to my mind if our education system isn’t trying to make the next Elon Musk, or Einstein, or Thomas Edison, it’s a waste of time. The kind of people public education makes is a much-reduced version of human kind that I have very little value for. So the less time kids spend in public school, the higher the ratio will be that they might grow up to become something good.

I am also the guy who sat down with a reporter at Lakota East and challenged the teachers there directly who were upset with me that I was against the higher taxes they wanted, and volunteered to personally teach 4 of their classes at the same time for a two week period. The teachers were trying to convince me at the time that their jobs were so hard that I would struggle to mimic their activities, which I found preposterous. I told several teachers at Lakota directly with a Journal News reporter present as a moderator that they could pick any 4 topics and put any number of kids in them and I would do a better job of teaching than any of the teachers could within a two week period, and I’d do it for free, for the pleasure in teaching young people how to think. I don’t view the teaching profession as hard, it’s a privilege to teach children, and I don’t think schoolteachers should complain about anything. If someone is willing to pay them money, that’s even better. But they have very short workdays, anything under 9 hours I think is a rip off, and they are off all summer. They are not worth the money that we pay them, especially at Lakota where many of them make nearly six figures through their ridiculous collective bargaining agreements. They challenged me to do their jobs, I accepted, but we never formally moved in that direction.

But also as we have talked about often on this site, and anywhere that people bring it up to me, government schools are not about teaching children anything, it’s basically a free babysitting service. And this new plan in Ohio for government schools to operate under only benefits the teacher’s unions, as usual. They work less, have fewer kids to teach, and they still get paid for the results. The parents will have to figure out what to do with their children which is just another cost burden on them, which as a reaction to Covid-19 which I have said often is purely political, parents have already had to figure out. So what good is Lakota schools to the community if parents aren’t getting what they really need out of the service? They are paying huge levels of taxation to essentially get a babysitter who isn’t there for them. Of course the government is going to punt on the liability of opening a school, they have allowed the goofball loser Amy Acton of Ohio to scare them thoroughly in regard to the reaction of Covid-19 which is a global push for Marxism rather than any real threat to mankind. And the teachers don’t want to work, they want to use “fear for their safety” to sit on their fat asses at home collecting a paycheck from property owners. If they can use Covid-19 as an excuse to do even less work, of course they will exploit it.

Yet, none of that matters when it comes to children and their minds. The less time they spend in a government school, the better for them. Many people think the tragedy of Covid-19 is that kids have been robbed of their graduation ceremonies, and the socialization that they get with peer contact at schools. Most of those people come out of the older generation where public school was an important part of their world outlook, but its also why they live as adults with a dulled sense of things as they are easily suckered by government on things like Covid-19, Russia Russia Russia, and Chinese propaganda. Government schools don’t teach kids to think, it teaches them to be compliant, so I think every hour that a kid is out of those terrible places, the better chance they have of becoming something special as an adult. So I’m perfectly fine with Lakota’s reopening plan, especially Plan B. I have grandchildren who are now school age. I can teach them anything they want to know about any topic in the universe with confidence. They don’t need a school of loser teachers from a socialist union to tell them anything. And they don’t need a babysitter because my daughters do the job of parenting the correct way, by being 100% available to the children. In that regard, the free babysitting is useless in my family, less time in the classroom gets the kids away from the government mandated complacency that they’d otherwise suffer under, so I see it only as a good thing. Maybe if some of these kids can get away from the government schools for a few years while the government employees milk Covid-19 every way they can, we might find a few Einsteins out there who may develop into special people instead of agents of Antifa or Marxist losers like Black Lives Matter.

Calling the Bluff of Government on Covid-19: They want you to bend the knee to the virus with a mask

If you haven’t figured it out yet and are still terrified of every little thing that Dr. Fauci says, there are a few things to remember, even though I have been explaining it to you Dear Reader for months. The purpose of the testimony that Fauci and others gave on Capital Hill this week was to panic the public into complying with their interpretation of the virus, Covid-19. And “they” meaning the political forces against President Trump and his supporters felt they had to turn up the heat after Trump’s Oklahoma Rally recently and the follow-up in Arizona to prevent the campaign from resuming the big rallies for which Biden could in no way compete. The Democrats have such a bad candidate that the media—who have proven themselves to be nearly entirely trained Marxists these days—and radicals for their cause, are propping Joe Biden up ridiculously at this point. They know he can never go toe to toe with Trump, so they are trying to change the rules of the game to make it easier to help out Joe Biden. Covid-19 isn’t about saving lives, its about helping Democrats win elections in the fall—and nothing else.

You can know that government is lying to you by their choice in measurements. Dr. Doom Fauci himself tried to jump out of the closet during his testimony to yell, “boo” hoping to rattle America back into closures which some of the red state governors fell for under great pressure. Government doesn’t have a right to close down bars, or anything for that matter. Government should never be in the way of economic commerce. If they aren’t there to help grow it, then they need to get out of the way. Using a virus as an excuse to throttle economic activity, which they hope and pray will still be an issue at the time of the upcoming election, is criminal conduct to drive home the issue and get people to buy in to the massive levels of corruption they need to force Americans to bend the knee to the virus with the mandating of masks to sell the implications to an otherwise innocuous issue. But concern is not what anybody should feel, because essentially what the election is forcing, and Trump’s response to it, is to push the CDC and its Marxist surrogates to go all in, which Fauci did by stating there could be up to 100,000 cases per day. Well, so what if there is? Who cares?

You see, the government has been trying to sell to you that cases are the same as death, even after they are literally sending in the National Guard to help conduct testing so they can get more results of cases, faster. In this way they can use “cases” to justify the trillions of dollars that the dummy government types have wasted on panic, and on political action to alter the course of the election. Additionally, these same dummies are all in on contact tracing, mandated vaccine development, and the scheme to continue the socialization of medicine, enact Agenda 21 strategies from the United Nations, and a whole host of other goals, none of which involve saving lives because lives aren’t unusually in danger due to the virus. The push would be to trace every virus in this same way now that they have started it, to justify getting suckered into it in the first place. So, yes, they are going all in on this Covid-19 issue because they have no choice in the matter now that they have put so much on the line. But they don’t have the cards. Once people realize that death and cases are not connected, the scare literally loses its meaning and this whole argument will abate embarrassingly into nothing.

Anybody who willingly wears a mask is an idiot. If some place of business requires the masks, then people should honor their rules, but otherwise, it’s a dumb acknowledgement to bend the knee to a virus the government reports it has no control over. Yet the government is using that lack of control to control election politics and the happiness of people in general. Again, I’m not going to kiss and tell but I have been in conversations recently with high level people, and I can tell you, they are not very smart. One of those people was Dummy Mike DeWine who said that one of his jobs as governor of the state of Ohio was to protect the lives of those most vulnerable. Auhh, the Constitution doesn’t say that anywhere, that is every bit as dumb as when John Kasich justified Medicaid expansion “socialized medicine” because he thought God told him to. Breaking the law, shutting down businesses, and expanding government out of some interpretation of a job description doesn’t make power grabs any more justified. When DeWine and other government losers like Nancy Pelosi advocate wearing masks in public it is to get you to bend the knee to their bad decisions and acknowledge their power to manipulate the public in the way they are by yielding to their power. If they say the situation is dangerous, then by God, it is.

Well, its not. In a few weeks even with 100,000 cases per day, or 500,000 cases per day, it won’t change the outcome. Hospitals won’t be overrun. Medical staff might have to work and not play on their phones all day, but our health care system will be just fine. One thing that the Marxist media hasn’t been reporting is that hospital discharges are occurring as fast as people are incoming, meaning, people are getting over Covid-19 and getting back to their lives quickly. Government doesn’t want anybody to know that, they want to slow the spread so that it lasts until the election. They want to have the power to shut down businesses when someone comes down with Covid and to take them off the job for 14 days, and mandate that all the people they contacted do the same, not for safety, but to slow the spread and keep this story alive until the election. And if we don’t cave into their fears, and we just keep chugging along economically, people will see for themselves that the Covid-19 thing was a lie from the beginning, and its going to piss them off.

Yes, losing sports for most of the year was unnecessary, not being able to drink with friends at a bar or pub was foolish. Wearing around a stupid mask was completely dumb and useless. It was a fake crises, a real virus, but the government reaction to it was purely politically and globally strategic. The goal of Covid-19 was to sucker Donald Trump to play along to his own election detriment. And he did play along for a while, but he’s seen the light and there is an election to win. Out of all the fake polling that is going on out there to shape public opinion, if Trump took a hit, it was because his supporters were disappointed in him for playing along. The media wants nothing more than for Trump to wear a mask in public to bend the knee to a virus. Rather Trump and the people who will be voting for him want to dominate the virus. Americans don’t hide and kneel to a sickness, and they don’t ruin their economy to them, ever. It happened thus far because people got caught trusting people like Fauci. Well, he cried wolf too many times, and we found out the wolf was a little midget puppy dog, nothing to be concerned with. And in a few weeks, the government will have to admit to it once they see that the people are rejecting their premise, and at that point, there will be nothing to stop the hatred of government that comes thereafter.

Chad Prather’s “Take Six Feet and Shove It”: Celebrating the 4th of July before we have to do it all over again

The 4th of July is still a week away, but already people are starting to fire off fireworks late into the night in an open defiance to the laws from our overly regulated government offices who preach safety and security to the point of killing our nation with boredom. That kind of defiance is healthy and good, yet I can’t help but wonder why so many people have been suckers to this latest Covid-19 nonsense. I mean, I understand there are a lot of timid souls out there who read all the directions that come with their lawn mowers so they don’t cut off their feet while cutting their grass, but the government lockdowns, the mandates for six foot social distancing, and the media panic over Covid-19 testing has been too much to witness. Obviously, the whole thing has been a massive socialist scam coming out of China. Any hit against Trump’s reputation that he has experienced is due to him getting suckered by it, and he now must repair that mistake, which he has begun doing. I think these days Trump is listening more to The Blaze’s Chad Prather more than Dr. “Doom” Fauci, which is good. But people in general should be doing the same, and should follow the guidelines of Prather’s latest song, “Take Six Feet and Shove It” because that spirit is needed more than ever as we approach the 4th of July.

Defiance of the rules is a healthy way to measure the validity of them. The socialist insurgents and anarchists have already figured out that the bureaucrat pinheads who run our government don’t have the guts to hold up law and order, so why the hell are the good people of this nation running around honoring “social distancing,” and wearing face masks in public just because a bunch of dumb governors tell us too. To counter what Mike DeWine of Ohio has said as governor, the science is far from irrefutable. It is in fact full of bullshit holes and mysticism. Chad Prather is right to make a song inciting rebellion on the matter, because our national reaction to Covid-19 has been an embarrassment. Trump should have rejected the WHO guidelines to Covid-19 from the outset. Instead, he knew they were going to try to hit him with the death count either way, so he played along, which severely weakened him in the eyes of his supporters. Not irreparably, but it was Trump’s first major stumble of his presidency in the eyes of his supporters, who always knew better. Sure it was under good intentions, and now most everyone knows that Covid-19 was a scam—except for the dumb governors who fell for it big time and are now being sued from just about every direction for constitutional violations. But ultimately, the spirit of America is expected to push back on these dumb laws and regulations and that’s what Prather’s video is all about.

But its not enough to just fire off a few fireworks. This is an age of rebellion and we must shove back into the faces of the maniacal institutionalists our rejection of their proposed rules and regulations intent to control our every last movement. The wearing of masks in public is an obvious attempt to force American society to bend the knee to globalist goals, and we should never do it, or accept it. These demands to make all employees wear masks in public is ridiculous, and we do what we have to do to make a living, but we should not do it with smiles on our faces that people can’t see anyway. We need to tell these governors to shove it. Its their stupidity that allowed themselves to be suckered, not our decisions. And social distancing is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard, a whole policy that is shutting down sporting events, amusement parks, and fine dining over a mystical appeal toward fake science is preposterous. There is no science that shows that social distancing and mask wearing works at all, let alone slowing some spread of a virus that our medical industry can easily handle anyway. The way we are measuring viruses such as Covid-19 is new, and completely politically motivated. Measuring cases not deaths is the issue, and attributing cases as deaths has been the biggest political scam ever conducted. People are disappointed that Trump got pulled into the drama convinced that he was going to save lives. But with hindsight being 20/20 we know now it was all complete crap, and so its time we do like Prather suggests, and that is to tell them to take all these Covid rules and to “shove it.”

I was talking to some older guys the other day, some of them former FBI agents, and they were talking about what to do next when the police are defunded and these governors continue to fall for scams from the communist loving World Health Organization in defending liberty and justice in America. When you find out that there is a political movement to rename John Wayne Airport in California out of sensitivity to racism, its time to grab our guns and take matters into our own hands. I know what John Wayne said in that controversial interview from 1971 and it wasn’t a big deal at all. It was taken out of context, Wayne wanted all people to be free, including blacks. But suddenly, his film legacy was being attacked, which is just another attack against you and me dear reader, so I was talking about all this with these older guys and they were ready to start shooting people right this minute. The question among them was when and who would be the first. I thought this was pretty surprising because these were not the kind of people who would normally talk this way. These were all former government employees, now retired who could see that the only way out, minus a Trump re-election, was to take up arms and fight back with violence the forces attacking America right now. And why not, through Covid-19 our government showed that they are easily manipulated and make bad decisions. They can’t handle the mobs. And now their priority was to change the names of airports named after popular conservative actors. Well, that’s a bridge too far.

So yeah, its coming up on independence day. It’s a time to throw caution to the wind and be a lot rebellious ignoring the rules to pay homage to the conditions that built our country into the law and order titan that it has been which ultimately secures our freedom. But all that is under attack and we are at a point where we must do more than fire off a few fireworks. We need to go several steps further, at the very least, ignoring social distancing and the public wearing of masks. Because if we don’t do that now, we may very well be very close to actually having to take up arms to fight the communists who are trying to take over our government right now. If Trump doesn’t recover, and if we don’t get behind him, and the socialists pull out a victory through cheating, we’re going to have to do a lot more to defend our liberty than dance to the latest Prather song. For now, it’s a good gesture. But tomorrow, it could be a lot more that is needed. So, lets all tell our government to shove it on the Covid response and hope that Trump can hold out and win. Because if not, the writing is on the wall. We are going to have to fight in the streets to rebuild our country and all the parody songs in the world won’t be enough to wash away the blood that will be spilt. Its good and healthy to tell our government to shove it, because the next step is that we’ll have to perform that task for real.

Why “They” Hate Trump and You So Much: How all these vast conspiracies have coordinated their efforts

After several conversations I’ve had with people this past week some who are extremely knowledgeable and successful, they had questions, the number one they have asked me was how all these various media outlets, global health organizations, government bureaucrats, and local radical protestors could coordinate such a vast conspiracy together to put on the pressure to harm President Trump’s re-election possibilities. After all, its not like they all met in a room with a well hatched plan to do all that we are seeing here and unleashing the results. The answer I had for them, which I get into much greater detail in my upcoming book, ‘The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business’ was that much of this activity is baked into our human society. People get the same basic education practices so they deal with problems largely based on what they were taught which is why so many people are quick to fall for big scams like Covid-19 and the death counts that are measured to set off alarms in the media, or the nature of Black Lives Matter. Because of the way we raise ourselves, as people, we all follow a similar pattern of reaction to a crises, and that allows enemies of freedom to easily coordinate attacks on our Republic as they trust the reactions people will have to their antics.

The severe hatred of President Trump that most institutionalists have is a trained behavior, not an instinctual one. Donald Trump used to be one of them, he was a playboy hanging around with Jeffery Epstein and running around with the rich and famous. He was very rich for a time, then he fell hard and was one of the most indebted people in the world. He’s been through several marriages and was for most of his life a social wreck that wasn’t a threat to the established order of things. That is until he married the right woman, aged a bit and matured, and developed a real love for the country and wanted to give something back after he realized that he had a lot to give after the television show, The Apprentice. And once he started running he realized there were a lot of people in America who were not part of that system he had been in, and they wanted nothing to do with it. So he gave them a voice and that’s where we are today. President Trump is a spokesman to the kind of people that America was always supposed to produce, but have been vastly ignored due to the nature of institutionalism.

You know the type, the people who get passed over for promotions because they speak too freely, or are “too” smart. Nobody, especially at the top of the food chain promotes people they fear will be better than they are and will be nipping at their heels threatening to make them look bad socially. People like other people who are just as compromised, and they seek security from performance review through peer acknowledgments. Its essentially the high school mentality that was a direct result of public-government schools, there are the popular kids, the less popular kids and of course the duds. By age 15 or so we all accept one of those roles in life and we live the rest of our days chained to those expectations. And successful people learn that its not merit that gets you high up in life, its how well you network with other people, most of the time who are losers, but have peer acceptance. And that is largely how an institutionalized society functions at all levels. That is also why a bunch of Black Lives Matter radicals are able to barge into a Target and start a rally with curse words in a family store while they steal merchandise in full view of all the cameras, but nobody confronts them to bring forth justice. Because corporations are often run by such people, collective bands of know-nothings who have lived their entire lives chained to some social class. They traded freedom for secure incomes long ago and now that they are challenged by radicals of their own imprisoned kind, they are frozen into a lack of action.

Trump like many of his supporters is a person who has broken free of that high school expectation of popularity, and like others who find themselves similarly free, people hate him for that independence. Most reading this can relate, they know at their places of work that they must comply with the old high school rules of social structure or they will not get raises, they will not get invites to play with the other popular kids in their reindeer games and that hurts them not only emotionally, but in the fear of not being able to make a good living. So they accept their flaws, because it makes them more appealing to others who always want to live up to a low bar of expectation and are thus imprisoned to a way of thinking that was designed from the beginning to hold them down. Most large corporations are filled with these types of people, most all who work in government are, and of course those are the same types of idiots who want to change the Star Spangled Banner to the John Lennon song “Imagine” because they can’t relate to freedom, only the conformity of the group. The freedoms of America are available to everyone, but most people are willing to trade those freedoms away to move up in their company, to get a prestigious role within their community, or to not be the least liked person at the next block party. They shove their kids into sports so they can have something to talk about that is socially acceptable at those parties, but secretly they hope that their children will luck out and get a chance at the big time, become independently wealthy and be free of this nonsense.

Yet, when someone like a Trump comes along who is independently wealthy, and has worked to be better than average and seems keen to live his own life, that hatred resonates among all those who have chickened out a long time ago toward any kind of expectation as such. And most of the Trump supporters are not so wealthy—but they want the chance to become so. They have not accepted the limits of institutionalized society and they yet have hope that America can inspire in people more than just acceptance of the norms, but a yearning for a better tomorrow complete with sheer tenacity. But that is the source of the vast conspiracy. People trained to be average by their education systems, their parents, and their society have a deep resentment of those who do not follow them over the cliff. People who insist on living free are a threat to the order of things. And even when they are punished and are still resolute on that course, the anger isn’t just directed at Trump, its at all those who stand behind him as a base support. Their attack on him is an attack on the rest of us who have rejected the limits society placed on itself, and we want more. More that only a free American society can give, and that is the harsh reality behind this next election. Their fear is complete rejection of their choices, like the popular kids in high school fear that nobody will like their place on the football team, or their role as cheerleaders. When people no longer care what institutionalism can give them, there is a fear of what comes next, and that is the unifying fear that is driving all these vast conspiracies. And why the threat of violence is so real. The instigators know of nothing else.

Only the Re-election of President Trump can Stop the Violance: We have lots of guns and nobody wants us to use them, including us

How many times have I had to explain it, the need to punch back at our attackers and to not think of them as “equals” who have thoughts different than us, and should be heard as such? So many times people have told me that by engaging with the enemy and playing their dirty game, that we were lowering ourselves and that someone should be the bigger person. That in so doing we were undermining any validity our own arguments might have in the light of day, while the enemy produces a complete rejection under terms of violence our very existence. We are supposed to take it like nice Christian soldiers while the villains of life itself hang us on a cross and set it on fire metaphorically as they burn the American flag in front of our faces, tear down our historical monuments and make actual threats against anybody of the white race with death. I remember specifically not that long ago, 6 or 7 years or so, when I was in a Milwaukee hotel doing a radio show exposing the contents of ‘The Naked Communist,’ by Cleon Skousen. It was a 1958 book that illustrated the goal of taking over the American education system, the movie industry, the medical industry, all of the media, newspapers, boards of whatevers—not with swords and gunfire but by educated people taught in the ways of red communism to undermine everything from within, to destroy America and spread communism all over the world in the direction of a one world government once and for all.

Of course at the time of that Milwaukee radio show I did on Skousen and the many written articles that I have published since, the information was mixed with the fun aspects of our culture and people might have rubbed their chins and thought of agreement with me, but they were not provoked to act because they couldn’t see the threat in the light of day. So long as the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant was open, there was college football, and the mall was open, people didn’t care much that outright communism was taking over all American institutions and our media companies were already bowing to their new masters of the east in China, who was buying them up quietly with American debt and blind trust. My warnings were listened to but overlooked because they seemed remote and far-fetched relative to the ways of the world at that time. People heard the names of Bill Ayers, and George Soros and that the stories were interesting, but they didn’t understand how they might impact their lives until Black Lives Matter started taking over American cities and the media was trying to shove everyone into their homes by fear of coronavirus death to prepare Americans for subjugation to a new authority. And suddenly our governors weren’t protecting our society from the bad guys, they were doing their bidding, and they were telling us to bend the knee to Covid-19 by wearing a mask in public. A lot of people are pretty blown away now at the sheer terror of it all.

While I don’t want to minimize the need to fight these losers, everyone needs a quick reminder that if they already had power and influence, they wouldn’t have had to stay in hiding all this time pretending to be something else while they took over our society. And if they truly thought they were in the right, they wouldn’t have to threaten force and destruction to get their way. They are coming out now with all this aggression and manipulation because we elected Donald Trump in the last election and all else has failed, and they are literally throwing everything they have at destroying him, and any supporters he might have left by Election Day, 2020. They are willing to burn down everything in America, they don’t want Disney World to reopen, they don’t want an NFL season, they don’t want movies to play in movie theaters, they want a complete destruction of American life while we are forced to hide in our homes wearing masks terrified of a virus. They have gone all in, to use the poker term, and are willing to bet it all to end the Trump presidency and the hopes of the American people to stop the plan that Skousen revealed in 1958, which even back then was several decades in the making.

Now, I know how this all ends, I am a person who loves reading books and I’ve been through all this through books and history, so I already know the fate of this radical leftist enterprise. Ayn Rand, the great American writer has covered this takeover before. In her book ‘We the Living’ we’ve seen this act before, so step by step its happening now in America what has already happened in the Soviet Union, Germany, China, Iran most of Central America, Cuba, Venezuela, to a smaller degree in Europe, just about everywhere the incursion of socialism leading to harder communism all based on the failed philosophy of the German Karl Marx. They are doing it on live television in America and people are pretty worried about it now that they’ve seen the ugly intentions for themselves, but there is one thing different in America that none of those other places had, free people armed with 300-400 million guns. You can bet if not for the Second Amendment that these communist radicals led by old terrorists like Bill Ayers and foreign investors like George Soros and even the Koch Brothers would have taken over our society completely. But because of private gun ownership they have had to resort to their insurgents in the medical industry to try to smoke us out with coronavirus.

The increase in activity on the communist front is because they are afraid we are going to give President Trump another 4 years and that even with all the cheating they have in mind to do to turn the election in their favor, that they won’t be able to do it. Because most of America between the cities is very much a free place full of Trump supporters, and they are going to reject communism, especially now that they have seen that my warnings so long ago were quite valid. Instead of listening to talk radio in their garages for the sports scores of their local baseball team, they are hearing about more coronavirus lockdowns. Instead of going to the movies to see the latest blockbuster they are watching news reports of the most recent Black Lives Matter Marxist takeover of a city and the chants to defund the police so criminals will have nothing to worry about while destroying America. And now normal everyday Americans are ready to fight because there is nowhere in the world left to go to get away from these people. That has set up a clash that is very much a new war on American soil. One that most people didn’t want to have happen and hoped to avoid with the election process. But if that doesn’t work, there will be a massive fight that will have to happen, and people are ready if the election fails. But at this point, there is still hope that the election might prevent all that bloodshed. However, a communist takeover by Marxist radicals is not going to be permissible. The minute they might try to abandon our Constitution, is the day their insurrection ends not with votes, but with physical force.

Mike DeWine Doesn’t Understand Business or the Customer Experience: Why government always screws up–everything

Its not that it surprised me in the least, but it is always a harsh reminder when I get to hear directly from someone like Governor Mike DeWine to get a measure just how ignorant they are about life outside of public office. It’s a pretty universal problem, I’ve met Mike DeWine here and there over the years particularly when he was just a U.S. Senator at various events and fundraisers. He seemed like a bright guy so long as everyone was talking about conventional law within the pretense of a civil society. But recently as a member of the media I was invited to have a closed door meeting with the Governor as he made the rounds from room to room at the Ohio Statehouse to do damage control over his Covid-19 response and the vandalism that was going on nightly there by rioters in the streets. It was very disappointing to hear from DeWine’s own mouth how lost he was to actual economic activity and what causes it or kills it. I heard firsthand a very smart House member grill the Governor over economic limits due to the Covid-19 reopening in Ohio and DeWine could not relate to the problem. To him, a lifelong politician, businesses being open should have been enough. But what he failed to understand was to what extent any business had to work to win a customer and to what impact government had destroyed that endeavor not just in Ohio, but across the nation.

DeWine isn’t alone, most politicians are disconnected from the realities of winning a customer and keeping them. To my experience most politicians, certainly not all, but most go into public life because they find the private life too scary, too uncertain for their timid souls. And because they are such cowards and risk averse people, they take a silent pleasure in going into government so they can create laws and legislation that tames the wild hearts of the business entrepreneur and forces them to comply with government officials all in the right to be in business to begin with. So a life time government guy like DeWine never really had to sweat it out about how to maintain a customer base, because his customers are always those who are forced to come to government no matter how bad that government is. Such as life with the BMV or the IRS. If you have a bad customer experience, you have no choice but to grin and bare it. DeWine and other politicians have no way of understanding how hard it is to run a movie theater, a restaurant, or even a chain store when they go out and scare the hell out of people with a bunch of false measurements, such as measuring the cases of Covid-19, not the statistical deaths, thus destroying economic activity.

Politicians are even dumber when they must consider the big picture, such as when major networks and their investors have a vast global conspiracy in mind for which through donations, they expect to control politicians. DeWine when I was able to hear from him directly is even more clueless about such things because it falls outside his “pay grade” as lazy people like to term it. They are always willing to punt to those things that are in “God territory” and are happy to say they are just small cogs in a big machine, and they trust that the operators of that machine know what they are doing. So when some globalist health director tells them to do this or that, they do it without question, because they trust the machine. Of course, that trust puts the rest of us in peril because we need those elected officials to do that extra leg work to understand the situation. But they never do, because public life is not performance based, so people who don’t want to be measured by such things, are attracted to public life. They certainly aren’t interested in the big picture of things.

Yet because of the sheer stupidity of these governors and mayors who are operating well outside their expertise, Covid-19 has exposed them as the shells they are. And because of our political structure, many thousands of businesses have been choked to near death, if not death itself. I’m thinking of entertainment companies like Kings Island, movie theater chains like AMC and virtually every restaurant that has had their hours cut, their opportunities to make money greatly limited, and their customer base harassed by the endless bureaucrats of government to the point where it has crippled everyone financially. And people like Governor DeWine does not even remotely care or understand why people are upset. It may be little things like soft drink manufactures not being able to get aluminum out of Mexico to make cans of soda to meet demand, or employees electing to not come back to work because they are getting too much money from the government to stay home and they don’t want to wear a worthless mask just to have the right to earn a living. Government stuck itself into the economic game as an unqualified regulator and now they have made a tremendous mess out of things and greatly crippled people’s lives—yet because of the measurements of government, they think they are heroes. It’s the most dysfunctional thing I’ve ever seen and to see it up close, its even worse.

To me its obvious that politicians like DeWine, the ones especially who have supported the government lockdowns and intruding on the free market with ridiculous Marxist regulations, that they are jealous of private industry. They know they have to dance like monkeys to get donations for their next campaigns so they relish the times when they get revenge on those same people through regulatory compliance. They enjoy punishing big companies like Cedar Fair Amusements once they find they can control their entire yearly forecast and bring them to their knees begging for government to “let them make money.” Opening a business is just part of the story, the bulk of it that has been completely ignored is the need for a positive customer experience. That has been completely tossed away during Covid-19. This is why China has to steal all their intellectual property and why the Soviet Union only made one kind of car. This is why Cuba still drives 1950s era cars from the United States, because when the customer experience is bad in a free market economy, and all aspects of that economy have a wet blanket thrown over them by government regulations, then the entire industry is made less by the result. When customers start expecting everything to suck, they stop trying to be better than all the other options and so it goes, government turns private industry into the government experience where everything is terrible, customer service horrible, and the hopes of something better completely tossed out the window. Government has no idea how to conduct good customer relations because they think customers always have to come to them regardless of how good or bad they do. But private industry is always concerned about the customer experience, and that is what has been damaged the most over Covid-19. Its not enough to just be open. But the customer experience is what has suffered, and it is stunning that people like Mike DeWine doesn’t even remotely understand, nor does he care.
