How Can Brett Kavanaugh be Guilty When Sherrod Brown Did Far Worse: Understanding what the liberal senator did to his ex-wife Larke Recchie

So what are we supposed to believe, that Sherrod Brown 26 years ago terrified his ex-wife Larke Recchie to the point that she was “in fear for the safety and well-being of (herself) and (her) children due to the defendant’s (Brown) physical violence and abusive nature—or the Brett Kavanaugh attempted to grope a Christine Ford at a high school party over 30 years ago? For Kavanaugh who is being nominated to the Supreme Court, Democrats are pushing with 24-hour news coverage to remove him from consideration because of that one incident which has no real witnesses, for which Ford doesn’t even want to provide testimony supporting her claims, and for which Kavanaugh says he wasn’t even there—and he has people willing to provide character witnessing to the fact. But in Brown’s case, he has been a Senator for over a decade and a House member for even longer, essentially most of his adult life. We have watched many reinterpretations of the law under the new premise of #METOO where women from decades ago accuse a male attacker of some impropriety, and in the case of what Sherrod Brown did to his ex-wife, under the terms of the modern #METOO movement, Brown should immediately step down as a Senator. But we are actually being presented with two value judgments, one that says Kavanaugh should be not considered for a Supreme Court position just because of an unfounded allegation while in the Brown case there is court testimony that proves the violence occurred. But with Brown we are supposed to give a free pass to the situation because he’s a Democrat? Does that make any sense?

For me personally I had heard the abuse allegations thrown at Sherrod Brown before, during the campaign he had a few years ago against Josh Mandel. So when the Renacci super PAC brought it up again recently it wasn’t exactly new news. In that previous election voters had decided that they didn’t care about Brown’s old divorce case with his ex-wife. When couples break up people sometimes get a little crazy and it was obvious at the time that the ex-wife supported Brown for his office as their two children needed to not be wrung through the ringer again within the media. But all that was before the #METOO excesses of radicalized feminists used the emotions of the moment to dig up dirt on every powerful man they could find in history and use that dirt to knock them out of power and giving it to themselves. Under the considerations of that movement, Sherrod Brown is certainly guilty and should be removed from office immediately—if equal justice was being applied of course.

But those same radical advocates for #METOO justice sat on this Kavanaugh story all summer in 2018 and waited until just a few days before there was a confirmation vote in the Senate making Brett Kavanaugh the next lifelong Supreme Court appointee—Christine Ford and her liberal attorney decided to unleash their story of a high school romance gone bad from over three decades ago. For my mind if that is the only dirt anybody could find on Kavanaugh in 36 years, that is pretty good. But looking at the facts of the story Ford likely was so inebriated with alcohol that she probably doesn’t even remember what guy she was with. She may have wanted it to be Brett Kavanaugh due to her liberal leanings as a college professor who doesn’t want a conservative to serve on the high court. Or maybe she had a high school crush on him and he turned her down and this is the way for her to get revenge on him now. Or maybe she’s just insane. That happens to people, especially radical partisan types. I would say that any form of liberalism is a form of insanity anyway, so those are all elements that punch holes in what she is declaring at the last-minute as an obvious attempt to hold up the Kavanaugh nomination past the midterm elections.

Yet we are supposed to listen to all this accusation from Ford under highly political circumstances, but we are not supposed to apply the same criteria to one of the most liberal senators on Capital Hill. Perhaps it’s the case that Larke Recchie has long forgiven her husband for the sake of their family. After all that divorce was a long time ago. But unlike the Kavanaugh case, there is actual testimony with Recchie, and Sherrod Brown is seeking re-election for an important office and under the new rules of the #METOO movement people have been brought down for much less. So why give Sherrod Brown a pass but run Kavanaugh through the ringer? Of course, all sane people know the answer to that, but we are talking about important matters here at the highest levels of politics, yet we are given these schizophrenic options to pick from as if they were not connected to reality. Its really a bizarre proposal.

In essence, if Kavanaugh is not qualified to be a Supreme Court appointee over some accusation from high school over three decades ago without any credible testimony, then Sherrod Brown needs to resign immediately from his government held position. It doesn’t matter that his ex-wife has forgiven him, because the actions that occurred show a potential tendency for violence that could erupt at any time toward women and makes Brown unqualified to make any decisions on behalf of half the population. If we are going to live with these types of rules that the #METOO movement is proposing, and the media obviously supports with all this wall to wall coverage of Kavanaugh, then the same terms must apply to Sherrod Brown.

Prior to the Kavanaugh controversy I was happy to keep Sherrod Brown’s situation off the political burner because of the amount of time that had passed. If people were willing to elect him before knowing his divorce record, then why retry the situation now? But Democrats have demonstrated that there is no amount of time that cannot be considered. If they have to go back a hundred years to dig up dirt in even remote ways to win an election, they are willing to do it. So that makes Sherrod Brown’s actions even as a young and volatile husband very much a part of his electability and something that is fair game for the Renacci team. After all, we can’t have one set of political rules for one party and not the other.

And as to the Senate Republicans who must decide to cast a vote in favor of Brett Kavanaugh. Don’t try to play nice with the Democrats. They will not show you the same favor. If you get a chance to go for their throat, such as in the Sherrod Brown situation, then do it. Vote for Kavanaugh. Let the Democrats cry. But take them to the mat over Sherrod Brown and force them to eat their own words. Its only fair after all. But for God’s sake, defend yourselves. Don’t be afraid to punch back. Defend your House and Senate majorities and even go for gaining a few new members. Be aggressive and position yourselves for victory. Stop trying to play so NICE!

Vote HELL No on the Butler County Safety Levy: It’s a money grab for ineffective school board members afraid to make hard decisions

Essentially if the school safety levy fails for the combined efforts of Fairfield schools, Hamilton, New Miami, Edgewood, and Monroe—Hamilton will vote to allow teachers to arm themselves. And the other school boards will have to follow because doing nothing simply isn’t an option. Out of Butler County, Ohio’s 10 school districts five of them are looking for this safety levy to hire more employees to keep the school boards from having to make a hard decision on how best to protect schools. At the core of the argument especially among young and inexperienced parents who have been taught all their lives that guns are bad, school boards are trying to appease them with a more centralized process. This involves spending millions of dollars on additional resource officers, mental health assessments and similar employee staffing increases which of course cost more money. Yet we know now from experience that the real solution is a more decentralized process where teachers can act as first responders the moment a crisis breaks out. And the good thing about that approach is that it doesn’t cost more money.

At the heart of the problem is that the basic assumption about public education is that it should not involve guns—because the aim of the progressive education philosophy is to live in a world where guns aren’t needed, value judgments are surrendered to equal rights and the people being educated are subjects of the state. Guns do not fit that view of the world. But in no way is that vision aligned with life in the real world, it’s an idea that mostly people who think politically left of center strive for. Most parents enroll their children in a school without thinking about politics or danger, because their primary concern is that their child is safe, and they want to believe that the schools themselves are free of any turmoil. School boards love to spend money, because its easy and when collections of people are in charge of administering finances, spending money is the only real way to get along because everyone loves to spend money, especially if it is other people’s money. So this issue is particularly challenging for school board members. The only way to make panicky parents happy is to give them more safety personnel, mental health specialists, social workers and counselors—because buying those types of employees give people the illusion of safety. It gives parents the feeling that the institution itself can keep their children safe, and as school board members yielding to that fantasy is safe in itself, until there is a real problem and a deranged shooter comes into the hallways that none of the new government employees could see coming.

Many of the gun rampages we have seen just this year, not to mention year’s past involved people who were considered mentally deranged in some form or another and the institutions of our society proved they were completely ineffective to stop such people from acting in a deadly way. To stop such a deranged mass murderer before the act occurs requires a decision based on judgments, and this is something that our modern institutions just don’t do, because they are so politically charged. Our modern institutions for which public schools are a part are more prone to trying to make a deranged lunatic feel more at home by attacking the normal kids into unnatural acts of compassion than in removing the threat from society by implementing a judgment that might seem unfair. So public schools are powerless to protect children from those who decide life isn’t worth living and they take to becoming mass murderers. By their reasoning, if they are going to kill themselves anyway, why not take a few people who made them feel terrible along the way pay too.

All the methods of implementing school safety as proposed by the Butler County safety levy is to deal with the aftermath of a mass shooting, not to prevent it from happening, and that is what needs to be clear about what people are voting for. There is only one way to ensure that a mass killer doesn’t gain an advantage over a student population of unarmed kids is to have teachers be the first responders to end the threat seconds after it has started, instead of minutes. That is the only way to properly protect students in a school from deranged killers which are becoming more common place these days from many influences. This idea that guns will be legislated out of existence is simply another liberal fantasy that they haven’t come to terms with yet. Guns are part of American life and children should learn to live with them, how to properly use them and what function they serve in the context of society. For instance, a serious course of study could be made of how the invention of gunpowder has changed the nature of human existence politically. Americans are living proof of that evolution, but the path to the political philosophy which created that American experiment is confirmation that no human society will retreat back into the compliance of a communist state, which as China is now and the Soviet Union used to be. Once people have tasted personal freedom, there is no way to erase it from their minds and over the last thousand years mankind has marched toward more personal freedom and much less aristocracy. Yet that is not what schools are teaching and that is also what makes them dangerous—because they are not aligned with the world around them.

For many the history of firearms and the nature of why people love them isn’t relevant to this discussion of school safety, but unfortunately for those utopian minded liberals, such an understanding is mandated for resolution on the safety issue. Is the security of a school more effective if it is more centrally controlled, or is it more effective if it is decentralized? The obvious answer of course is decentralization, we know that from lots of experience as a society. Guns are a part of world culture, they were invented out of human necessity to protect individual rights and that is why history says they are here to stay. We aren’t going to “uninvent” them. Therefore, to have a safe society we have to have a means to defend ourselves from people who may use them for malice and especially in education institutions, such instruction and awareness is paramount for tomorrow’s next generations. To defend them from harm, guns must be part of the solution, not mental health specialists, social workers, and counselors. Those are investments into what happens after a tragedy. We want to solve such problems before they become deadly.

Parents and teachers who are not comfortable with guns are going to have to adapt. Their sensitivities cannot be the contributing factors to making schools less safe due to their emotional condition toward guns. For those people I would suggest some classes on firearms, and to learn more about them aside from what they have seen in Hollywood productions over the last twenty years. Guns themselves are not dangerous, they are precision instruments which defend individual rights. If a teacher is responsible for the safety of a classroom and a crazed gunman is outside their door looking to commit mass murder against harmless, innocent people, that teacher should have the ability to end the threat right then and there. There won’t be time to call the police. A counselor or mental health specialist won’t stop a killer in the hall and talk them out of committing violence, only equal or superior firepower can do that. And that is the way of things in a free society—decentralized first responders who can slow down or stop a threat until the professionals arrive, just like in CPR. The only thing stopping this safety measure from being implemented for the good of everyone is the sensitivities of those who insist that guns not be part of a solution that only guns can solve. And not just guns, but guns in the hands of everyday people who are on the front lines and most prepared to take action when threats arise.

For many, obviously the case with the school boards of the participating schools, the responsibility for such security in their minds fall on the professionals we hire in society to deal with these kinds of things. But it is that over-reliance on institutional safety that many of these mass killers exploit to instigate their wrath. Guns are not a particularly American idea, but the personal use of them is, which means that in order to have a properly safe society that is living in harmony with the invention of guns, that personal participation of guns is something we should use to solve the gun violence problem. The solution is in decentralization within our institutions so to make them safer. More centralization will give us the opposite, the likelihood of more violence. If we really want to solve the problem of mass shootings, especially in public schools, and especially in Butler County which is the focus of this unique tax increase for the five-schools mentioned, then we need to allow teachers to be that layer of security. Throwing more money at more centralized control will do nothing but waste money, which the school boards participating in this horrendous tax and spend approach should have already had in their budgets to begin with. Ultimately what the school boards are asking for in this levy request is for Butler County voters to bail them out of having to make a hard decision—whether or not to cut some expenses out of their budget to hire more safety personnel, which is what they should be doing. Or in having to make a decision in arming teachers which would hurt the sensibilities of some neurotic parents who need an education of their own to get up to speed with the modern world. But nothing about the Butler County safety levy will make schools safer from a potential shooter who might want to attack schools and the children within it.

If I had loved ones in these schools, which I personally do, and a lunatic comes to that school with a gun to shoot up the innocent, I expect a teacher or administrator to be carrying a gun and to stop that situation before mass carnage occurs. There isn’t time to call for help when something like that happens. The situation must be dealt with right then and there. I don’t need a counselor to talk me through the grieving process after a bunch of kids have been killed. I don’t need a mental health professional to rationalize the mind of the killer before the smoke has left the scene of the crime. I just need the threat neutralized and that loved one home safe every day. And just having teachers carrying guns concealed during their professional business makes the chances of a safe day at school much more of a reality.
Vote not only NO on the Butler County Safety Levy, but………………………….HELL NO!

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.

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.
