America’s Last Stand: The new Atlas 3 poster, domestic terrorists and Schwarzenegger

with 2 comments

Listening to all this uproar coming from the political left about the people supporting Cliven Bundy in Nevada defending his very way of life has reminded me of the final chapters of Atlas Shrugged.  Harry Reid and other progressive radicals are looking at typical flyover Americans as “domestic terrorists” because they refuse to acknowledge the law in the form which politics controls it.  The standoff at the Bundy Ranch is just a sign of things to come when the federal government decides to step outside of the cities which are filled with broken people long beaten by progressive politics, and engage rural Americans who reside on nearly every farm from Pennsylvania to Nevada.  Reid and the New York progressive pundits calling these Americans “domestic terrorists” are following the plot of that famous novel almost page for page.

Speaking of that novel which has been made into three films, the third part of which is due out on September 12th of 2014 as shown on the new movie poster seen above—the filmmakers will likely fall within the same category as Bundy.  I saw that movie poster weeks ago, well before it was released and I loved it.  In it, John Galt essentially stands up to a group of Harry Reid types and declares in front of the American flag that he will not live his life in sacrifice to others.  For progressives, this is a radical ideal, that a human being would declare that their life has more value than the collective sum of other people.  In the novel, John Galt was considered a domestic terrorist by the corrupt government that was running around with a super weapon designed to control entire cities with fear of immediate annihilation.  All John Galt did to be considered such a villain was to declare that his life was his own and he was free of their attempts at intimidation.

In the real world, Cliven Bundy has essentially stated the same, and he has been ridiculed, and threatened to no end.  Snipers have had Bundy’s head in their cross-hairs moments away from taking a kill shot just because Cliven has refused to pay grazing fees for land grabbed by the federal government who write the laws that makes such actions legal.  Harry Reid is at the center of the controversy apparently using such deals as ways to enrich his family members—and he is the one who thinks that Bundy is wrong.

The Atlas films have certainly provoked a similar hatred from the progressive left.  My friends at Galt’s Gulch have certainly seen their share of harassment at the website linked below.  (YOU CAN ALSO BUY THE MOVIE POSTER FROM THAT LINK)  This third film looks to be the most profound of the three.  Without question, some of the actors in the film were concerned about their future employment in the film industry because their affiliation with the project will be viewed harshly.  Nobody wants to be considered a “domestic terrorist” just for acting in a film that has conservative/libertarian values in it—which go against progressive thinking of mass collectivism and sacrifice to the goddess Mother Earth.


I recently watched Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand which opened with a domestic box office total of $12,050,299 and a foreign take of $36,280,458—which is considered a failure.  The production budget was $45 million, so the film made back more than it spent and it has a healthy life in DVD sales and Netflix contracts—which isn’t bad for a January release.  The move was a lot of fun from an action movie perspective, and it actually reminded me a lot of the type of characters in the Bundy case as well.  I wanted to see the film for three reasons; Arnold wore my version of the U.S. Wings jacket, and used my .500 Smith and Wesson magnum.  He was also telling my kind of story.  I loved the movie, and I imagine that the people defending Bundy at his ranch love the film also.  The movie was about small town self-reliance and bravery over terrorists.  Several key scenes made no mistake about their intent; one was a scene where Schwarzenegger told the patrons of a local eatery to evacuate—which they refused because they were eating breakfast.  Schwarzenegger as the sheriff respected them and left them alone even though tremendous danger was headed in their direction.  Another was the scene where a farmer was killed off his tractor for defending his land against the encroachment of a drug cartel.  A third was an old lady who shot one of the drug cartel members after telling the guy to leave her home.  All three examples provided situations where older people were defending either their right to make personal decisions, or their concept of private property.  That is something a person like Harry Reid considers “radical.”

The reviews for The Last Stand were scathing.  They were so brutal that I didn’t even go see the movie at the theater, even though I had made a point to want to see it—because of the reasons mentioned.  I missed the opening weekend and it didn’t last far into February and was pulled before I made it to the theater.  I watched it on Netflix over the Holiday weekend because I actually had time to sit down long enough to catch up on movies like that, and the last Die Hard film, A Good Day to Die Hard.  Bad reviews against movies like Atlas Shrugged, The Last Stand and A Good Day to Die Hard are provided for the same reasons that Harry Reid called the Bundy standoff a situation of domestic terrorism—because progressives are insulted by the concept of individual liberty over collective salvation.  By the way, The Last Stand is so good that I will watch it many more times—I LOVED IT!  LOVED IT!

Atlas Shrugged isn’t even about violence, but it does contain the same messages of self-reliance and that alone in the eyes of progressives is a sign of domestic terrorism—when defined by them that the most important attribute to a stable society is the concept of collective sacrifice.  In Harry Reid’s case, he wishes to use collective sacrifice to enrich his son and political contributors—so he needs the ruse of justice to continue his scam, and the Bundy Ranch standoff is essentially no different from the anger the bad guys felt toward Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character from ruining their plans in The Last Stand.  By the end of the film they were either dead or very pissed off.  Reid isn’t angry that the Bundy’s don’t want to pay for grazing fees, he is afraid that other ranchers might feel embolden by the standoff and also challenge the federal government.  To him—that is terrifying.

What is equally terrifying to writers at The Huffington Post, Move On.org, The Hollywood Reporter, and MSNBC is that people may actually want to see movies like Atlas Shrugged Part 3, The Last Stand, or God forbid, A Good Day to Die Hard over progressive films like American Hustle and Dallas Buyers Club.  If Americans ignore their bad reviews and see those types of films anyway, producers may feel emboldened to make more movies that speak against progressive policies and before anybody knows it—it’s the 80s all over again—and no progressive wants that.  After all, progressives want communism, and in the 80s, capitalism was celebrated—music was awesome, movies where great, presidents were bold, and America was respected all over the world.

I will be one of the very first people to see the new film Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt.  I may even get to see it at the premier in Vegas right down the road from the Bundy Ranch.  I’m sure that progressives will see me as a domestic terrorist for enjoying a film where the hero declares that his life is not to be sacrificed away for the “greater good” as defined by people like Harry Reid.  In the real world, Cliven Bundy is doing the same thing, and the culture behind him was shown beautifully in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand.  I know many people like the characters in The Last Stand and Harry Reid knows now what progressives feared most—that once they leave their cities the rural population will fight them—and fight them hard.  The United Nations will not gain control of America’s heartland with regulations and EPA legislation from the Federal government.  Bundy is just the first—but he won’t be the last to take a Last Stand in America.  The villains in the American senate bowing to the United Nations and Socialist International believe that self-reliance is an act of domestic terrorism.

Additionally, am I upset that Arnold Schwarzenegger took my look and used it in his film The Last Stand…………absolutely not.  Likely some of his people saw me in this video and put that clothing on Schwarzenegger—it’s the exact same jacket that I use—a G2 jacket from US Wings firing a .500 Magnum one-handed.  I love Schwarzenegger and his movies, so I’m always happy to help.  It isn’t the first nor the last time something like that will happen.  A lot of people read here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom and it is for those types of reasons that I do some of the things that I do.  Mimicry is the ultimate compliment.

Lakota’s Greg Snyder Suspended: More abuse of power from public school teachers

with 15 comments

I don’t normally give the Lakota school board credit, but they deserve some for the hard decision of reprimanding and suspending the famed band director Greg Snyder.  Snyder shortly after the disciplinary action took early retirement which takes place next February 20th 2015. At Lakota that is similar to punishing a star athlete who is a team’s bread and butter—it is difficult—but is something that must be done when impropriety is discovered.  The band director who took Cincinnati to the Tournament of Roses Parade and the famous Macy’s Day Parade used his $81,733 per year position to make at least $6000 additional dollars more in private lessons, and free travel for his family members.  Here are the details according to a good report from Channel 19 news in Cincinnati.


Lakota West High School’s band director has been suspended for 17 days without pay after a district investigation found that he violated several policies and state laws, including using his official influence for personal gain.

A letter dated Monday to Greg Snyder, the district’s executive director of human resources outlines the conduct led to the suspension.

“Mr. Snyder, I must indicate to you that I am deeply concerned for your disregard for board of education policies, the Licensure of Professional Conduct, ethical considerations and other directives given by Lakota administration,” Diane Brunsman said. “This attitude and disregard is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.”

Snyder has conducted a band clinic for seventh, eighth and ninth grade students for nearly 20 years that’s never been a district sponsored event. Before the past two years, Snyder received the student participation fee money directly for the band clinic.

Snyder advertised the band clinic by posting a flyer that sits next to programs at band concerts and he made the flyer on his district-provided computer.  Snyder determines who receives money for the clinic.

The district said that conduct violated several policies and state laws, including the state’s prohibition against the use of official influence for personal gain.

Snyder also encouraged the hiring and payment of family members by the Upbeat Club band boosters for band camp. That violates state law that says public employees are not permitted to authorize or use their authority to secure a public contract for himself, relatives or business associates.

The district also said that Snyder hosted private lessons at his home for Lakota district students. Board policy required that he received permission for the lessons but the district found no records that he received the approval. The board found that Snyder gave students extra credit for taking private lessons.

Since at least 2004, Snyder received free school band-related trips from travel agencies. The district didn’t pay for the trips. Until a recent New York trip, Snyder arranged the traveling. He decided what vendors to use for travel services, Brunsman said.

The travel-related conduct violated several policies including the prohibition against the use of official influence for personal gain, the district said.

Brunsman found more alleged misconduct.

At last year’s band camp, a student was told by a college student to run laps while all staff and students went inside. The student passed out outside alone. The student’s father found the student and spoke to Snyder about the incident. But Snyder didn’t tell anyone at the district about the episode.

“You were the district employee in charge during this incident and failed to adequately supervise the students,” Brunsman wrote.

The district also said that a uniform vendor treats Snyder and his wife to a variety of places for dinner including Applebee’s, Skyline and an annual dinner at The Precinct or other Jeff Ruby restaurants. That too violates several policies or laws.

Snyder has agreed to retire/resign effective Feb. 20, 2015 or when he is eligible to retire through the State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio with 35 years of service.

Snyder’s salary is $81,733.

Lakota West’s band has performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Tournament of Roses Parade.


The school board did the right thing, even though it was surely difficult.  However, here is where attention needs to be directed.  The story was very cleverly released on the Thursday before Good Friday immediately after the release of the new teacher contract with the union where that same board agreed to pay over $2 million dollars more in raises to over 900 teachers just like Snyder, who are highly paid already.  The actions of Snyder who was an example at Lakota West of everything that was right about a teacher proved that the temptation to abuse power for personal gain is just too great, and even large wages cannot prevent the kind of greed that fueled his actions.

I can only use my own experiences for reference in judging Greg Snyder’s behavior which I’m sure levy apologists will attempt to declare is much to do about nothing.  Professionally, I do pretty well—so much so that my wife doesn’t have to work.  Just last weekend I spent some time with my friends at the The Whip Artistry Studio helping them do promotional work.  CLICK HERE FOR REVIEW.  At the conclusion of the event I was offered quite a lot of money for my services, which I turned down because I like the people involved and felt my pay-day had already come from other sources.  It didn’t cross my mind to charge money—not even remotely until a few hundred bucks were stuffed in my face which I refused.  A few days later some high level entertainers saw the work I was doing for WAAM radio at the Cincinnati Tea Party Tax Day and assumed I was highly paid talent producing a show.  When they discovered that I was doing everything for free, they were shocked.  I explained that it was passion that drove my actions, and I would never expect payment for doing what I enjoyed while helping friends.  For me the value is in doing something I feel passion for.  When I hear about Greg Snyder’s actions, if I had a nice position making a comfortable $81,000 dollar per year salary which is more than enough to live on—and I wanted to share that passion with students outside of school, I would never charge for extra classes or mentorship—and I’d pay for my own meals.  What Greg Snyder did was so ridiculously cheap and low-class.  He is just the latest example of a poor mind corrupted with terribly bad judgment at the Lakota school system.

The scary thing about Greg Snyder is that he is an example of what’s right in public schools, and not even he with a very comfortable wage can turn down the temptation to abuse power to enrich himself.  One of the reasons the school board stated that they needed to give teachers $2 million dollars in pay raises is because they wanted to retain their quality of teachers—yet Snyder is one of their examples of a quality teacher—a real school asset who was very well paid.  But the money wasn’t enough to keep him from abusing his power—so why would the school board think that throwing more money stolen from tax payer property values would alleviate future Greg Snyders from their poor conduct?   The answer is that they fail to recognize good teachers from bad ones.

Greg Snyder’s behavior is typical of employees protected by a labor union.  Even with all the media coverage, Snyder will still teach at the school until he is eligible for retirement, which is almost a year from now.  So the punishment is pretty toothless—except for the embarrassment of the experience.  Such labor unions like Lakota’s LEA is filled with these types of small-minded employees, who are so cheap mentally that their generous salary isn’t enough—they want more—and more—and more, levy after levy, after levy.  They are never happy because they are mentally empty vessels inside perpetually seeking to be filled.  There are not enough raises the school board could ever pass or taxes levied against the community that will stop the behavior of similar Greg Snyders.  Because Greg Snyder isn’t so good—it is just that the rest of public education is that bad.  A person capable of making the bad decisions of Lakota West’s band director is not a person who should be teaching children.  So what if they get to go to New York on Thanksgiving Day to participate in the Macy’s Parade—if to get there they had to pad the pockets of Greg Snyder and his wife to become a bit better.  It takes extra work to be better than the next competitor, and Snyder was charging students for that boost—so there is nothing special about Greg Snyder which is the heart of this story.  What was assumed about Snyder was that his bands were good because he was just better than other band directors.  The truth turns out to be that he was teaching in a rich district that had great benefits like being sent to The Precinct and other Jeff Ruby restaurants, accompanied with under the table cash from The Upbeat Club because the parents were willing to pay for their kids to get a bit of a boost in life.  Snyder was too cheap to cover those events with his voluminous paycheck.  Greg Snyder turned out to be just another typical example of a public employee—much more concerned with their payday than actually doing good work. And at Lakota he was considered one of the good ones.

Imagine what the bad ones are like—and out of the 900 teachers who just got a levy increase funded pay raise, you can bet there are employees in that mix who also make similar money as Snyder did under the LEA collective bargaining agreement who are so bad that they make Lakota’s band director look like a saint in comparison.

“Just as a note to Randy Oppenheimer, Lakota’s director of media and community relations who reads here quite often for obvious reasons—I put this story up after Easter was over, because you know how things are.  You released your story during a holiday weekend so that people would have their minds on other things and it would be dead by Sunday morning.  Clever move—so I waited until people were reengaged with reality before I commented on it.  You didn’t think I’d forget did you?  Surely not.” :  )  This little chess game between us wouldn’t be any fun otherwise.

Rich Hoffman Told You: Lakota gives over $2 million in raises to their teachers

leave a comment »

Don’t say I didn’t tell you so, because I did.  I told the world over the radio, in newspapers, and in countless online articles that Lakota’s levy passage in 2013 was about one thing—giving their teachers raises for unaccountable performance.  Over this last week the Lakota school board kissed the feet of Sharon Mays, the Lakota Education Association president—particularly Julie Shaffer by providing not even a hint of resistance throwing money that was just approved in November for so-called security issues “for the children,” at the union.  The school board unanimously approved a $2,200 dollar salary increase for over 900 teachers which equate out to over $2 million dollars in increases— a huge portion of the money confiscated through the new tax increase.  Now that you dear reader have seen what Lakota did with the money they extracted from the public through a manipulative campaign where they played to the sympathies of the public, spent thousands and thousands of tax dollars on public relations strategies—it all came down to teacher pay increases just like I said it would—exactly.  Here is the video I put up prior to the 2013 election and my prediction for 2017.  Watch closely…………………….

Notice in that video what I said about 2017.  Well, guess what, the contract that Julie and Sharon just ratified together runs out June 30th, 2017.  Guess what happens then—more pay raises are expected just as the chart in my video shows—right on schedule.  Of course Julie, who is the representative of the union on the school board had good negotiations with the LEA.  She was their girl all along—that was evident as far back as when I debated her on 700 WLW before Scott Sloan’s wife put the clamps down on him so she could sell more homes as a realtor.  The sliced elective classes, the busing, the sports fees were all part of the extraction process.  As soon as the union realized they were going to get what they wanted, Lakota voted to give many of those things back to the public.  The game all along was to hold the public hostage until the union got their money.  Now that they have it, things can return to normal—its all part of the extortion racket set up in virtually all public schools.

The next move for the union was to allow the school rating to decrease from Excellent with Distinction.  If the November levy didn’t pass, that was the next step by the school board, superintendent, and their friends in the labor union.  There was already pressure from outside finance to alter the bond rating, which had to be averted because of the failed levies—and many of my friends on the No Lakota side knew that.  The radicals at Lakota contemplated letting the Excellent rating slip—which is mostly politics anyway.  This would drop the bond rating and throw the burden back on the No Voters.  That was too much for many of them to deal with, because that would have an immediate impact on realtor sales.  That is nearly the same type of dilemma that Congress faces when they decide whether or not to raise the debt ceiling.  It might be the morally correct thing to do—to not raise it—but in so doing the economy is wrecked.  The real problem is the debt spending, but the radicals spending the money use that dilemma to their advantage to prevent management action—so nothing happens because nobody wants to take the hit on their watch.  At Lakota if the 2013 levy did not pass, this was the union’s next step, to let the bond rating slip and drop the Excellent with Distinction certification to a level lower.  School board members of course didn’t want this to happen while they were in office, but the LEA union was fully prepared to employ that strategy.  That’s how much they care for the “children.”

I of course stood against the levy, even though I knew what was coming next.  For that I was personally attacked in many different ways and told that I should move from the district.  Even Scott Sloan who originally supported the No Lakota Levy position on the radio advocated that those against the Lakota tax should just move to another community if they didn’t want to see levy passage.  This was just an asinine position.   I have lived in Liberty Township since before a lot of the levy supporters in Lakota were even born, and I was told that I should surrender my home to all these panicky parents and radicalized left-leaning teachers just because they wanted more money.  That is how stupid the whole argument was—and continues to be.  Fairfield failed their levy in November and guess what—six months later it is back on the ballot and will continue to be until the unions get their money from the public.  Every time a levy is failed, the crazy union policy is to take more and more away from the public until they give in and pass a levy. The newspapers, television news, all mainstream outlets are all in on the heist because ultimately, property has been connected to these public schools which is the last line of defense for the union, an arrangement concocted through politics.

This problem will continue on until people no longer care about having their property values attached to a public school.  Lakota is near that saturation point, but is not quite there.  Liberty Township has a lot of out-of-state investment pouring into it from people moving into the area from other places—typically more progressive places like the East Coast and they bring with them these high tax trends which will last for about 15 years and taper off once a new hot spot is designated.  Currently these types of people outnumber homeowners like me who have been in the area for much longer than they have.  Through democracy they have the ability to pillage the land and its resources, and then leave it like an empty carcass.  They treat Liberty Township like the tail of a shrimp at a fine restaurant.  They dip the tail in a sauce and suck out all the meat leaving the remnants of a shell on a plate to be thrown away.  That is what Pro Levy voters and the labor union at Lakota are doing—and the school board lets them do it.

So what’s next?  Well, there will be another levy in 2017—as I predicted.   There will be another in 2023 as well and taxes will then become unsustainable for residents and businesses.  There will be a short-term influx of wealth created through this new labor contract as even No Lakota Levy people were happy to see the levy pass so not to affect the developments of Carriage Hill and Liberty Center.  But that will diminish as well over a fairly short period of time.  The battle plan of the radicals is fully set, and there just aren’t enough people with the stomach to stand against them—which they know.  As for me, I’ll continue to stand against the tax increases.  As it has been noticed, my focus lately has been on larger issues—the origin problems of how this whole system was constructed.  I have no desire to deal with the effects.  Doc Thompson and I are planning a documentary which was originally scheduled to shoot this past winter, but has been moved to the summer.  In it we plan to interview former Lakota school board members to tell a national story of how and why public education is a travesty and parasitic failure.  The documentary is set to be released through Doc’s affiliation with The Blaze—Glenn Beck’s vast Dallas-based enterprise.  I presented this material to everyone prior to the vote—what the teacher’s union planned to do with the money, but voters chose to preserve their level of comfort over the long-term sustainability of the district.   They picked short-term thinking over long-term management—and the levy narrowly passed.  Celebrations among progressive groups attached to public education erupted, because they knew the money tree had been turned back on and the scam known as public education was once again yielding fruit.  So for me, the next step is to attack the foundation of this debacle—and not the effect.

Lakota certainly mislead the public.  Sheriff Jones participated—he said during the levy campaign that the money was going to go toward security at the schools.  Well—guess what?  Now Liberty Township is seeking a levy to pay for police—for the schools. The two public employee unions, the FOP in Butler County and the LEA at Lakota are trying to double tax the residents of Liberty Township and they hope people are too asleep to notice.  That’s why the press release was put out for Lakota during the spring break period just ahead of Good Friday—while most people are otherwise distracted before the May 8th vote for the police levy, where residents can actually put some tax money back in their pocket.  Most levy supporters are too busy to pay attention to all these issues between soccer practices, career obligations, and the television shows stacking up on their DVR machines.  All these technical details are just too much to pay attention to—so they continue to vote foolishly to tax themselves—and Lakota knew all along that even though I was publishing their plans so people could vote accordingly, that in the end people either didn’t care enough to act, or were afraid of the results.  And thus—the teachers got what they wanted—more money.  Now they can go back to sexting students and enjoying one of the few professions in the world where they can make so much money doing virtually nothing but spreading left-winged political ideology and babysitting for parents who lack personal management.

Rusty Humphries at the Cincinnati Tea Party: Why “WINOs” are in a lot of trouble

with 3 comments

imageI have been extraordinarily busy of late—much, much more than I care to be. My bullwhip friends from the Western Arts had of course my top priority and that occupied most of the last weekend. Then of course there are family obligations, normal career type commitments, a meeting Monday at the Elks Club for the Liberty Township Tea Party which I wrote about yesterday. Then there was the event on Tax Day out in Eastgate, the Cincinnati Tea Party rally which brought out some of the most vigilant patriots of the current liberty movement anywhere. Doc Thompson was there, Ann Becker and all her posse including Chris Littleton, Mike Wilson, Ted Stevenot and Libertarian Girl were there. Rusty Humphries flew in from his Washington Times gig representing the new Atlas Shrugged movie. My friend Matt Clark came down from Ann Arbor to do a live podcast from the event. There were many, many more names—all of them very good—and all of them fighting hard every day for what’s right by way of the American Constitution—but my time was occupied primarily by those names mentioned. To do the event justice, there is no way I can cover everything in a single article, so I’ll start with the Rusty Humphries speech, which can be seen below—and embodied the tone of the entire evening magnificently.

Rusty also did an interview with Matt Clark who was set up outside the main conference hall. The interview was every bit as entertaining as would be expected by Humphries who has a nationally syndicated radio show. He also writes for the Washington Times, and is even acting in the new Atlas Shrugged Part III movie. Watching he and Matt work together was like watching the present and future aligned. Matt Clark certainly has in his future a syndicated talk show as he shares with Humphries the ability to use social media to blast his message to the world. The only difference is that Humphries has been doing it longer, and already went through the kind of criticisms that Matt Clark often inflicts upon himself constantly looking for broadcast perfection.

All evening there was a constant steam of interviews which went through Matt Clark’s WAAM broadcast table, most of which will be featured over the next couple of days. One of the funniest comments made over the course of the evening was Humphries reference to Hillary Clinton. During his speech he talked about the various RINOs in politics, people like John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, any of the Bush brothers, etc. RINO of course means “Republican in Name Only,” which is to say that those so-called Republicans have been terrible at preserving conservative ideals. They’ve been more interested in compromising with people who want to fundamentally change American life, and have done a great disservice to their nation. This is when Humphries said that Hillary was a “WINO,” a “Wife in Name Only.” That drew quite a laugh and it stuck with me throughout the night.

The “WINO” comment was funny because most people feel that Bill and Hillary Clinton have an open relationship where they have simply pulled a ruse on the American public for more than three decades of scandalous crusade. Their mission as Marxist loving young college students was to deliver America to the doorsteps of the Socialist International controlled United Nations and they pretended to be like every day Americans to concoct the ruse. Part of that deceit was to pretend that they are a traditional married, husband and wife–while at the same time advancing LGBT agenda points and a gradual erosion of American sovereignty to the chaos of the world cesspool. Does anybody honestly feel that Hillary would not do anything to become elected into an office, even if it meant committing herself to a loveless marriage in the typical European style of power arrangement? I don’t doubt it for a moment, and it is likely that she cannot even relate to a typical American romantic comedy because she does not have the kind of feelings in her life associated with “love,” “passion,” or “sexual longing,” as her primary motives appear to be exclusively—for her entire life—committed to social reform built on a progressive reference established by Marxism—which she learned in college.

It was good to hear Humphries say what virtually everyone was thinking—it was therapeutic and was the primary reason that most of the hundreds and hundreds of people came to the Cincinnati Tea Party Rally on a Tuesday night. They needed relief from the insanity of a world spinning out-of-control and into perpetual progressive madness. The people present were awake and all aware of the follies around them—and having so many people in such a state gives hope that the world will not degrade into a bottomless pit from which it will never return.

Matt bought a hamburger for me once the event was over at the bar. We barely placed our order before the kitchen closed as the rally went late into the evening. Humphries had already left as many others were leaving, but Matt and I hadn’t had any food all day, so a well-earned hamburger was just the thing. Kelly Kohls and some of her party joined us in the bar for a bit as the waiter brought us our food. Kelly laughed when she saw the incredible size of my hamburger, complete with everything on it, onions hanging over the edge with huge leaves of lettuce, largely cut tomatoes and a tremendously huge bun sprinkled with sesame seeds. Her son happened to be sitting next to me and I took his mother’s comments and expanded on it by saying that this was an example of American food. “You wouldn’t get a hamburger like that in France, or Spain, or Italy. In those countries they give you some silly little noodles and some crappy vegetables off on the side of the plate—and they consider it art. Their food is like their crappy little Fiat cars, their bad breath, terrible economies, and wimpy sports. Here in America, like this hamburger,” which I had to put all my weight on to smash together to fit into my mouth, “we like V-8 engines, fast cars, violent sports, guns and women in thongs.” At that point Kelly called me a few names and took her 15-year-old son away from my bad influence. I told her that her son was a guy, and that he needed to hear those kinds of things. She laughed and hit me in the shoulder and walked off. I didn’t blame her, after all she is running for a Senate seat, and she needed to maintain her respectability in the eyes of the masses. But I don’t. Hamburgers, fast cars, rock music, football and chicks with thongs are the kinds of things I think of when I think of America—and specifically freedom. So after the evening festivities the gigantic hamburger from the hotel bar complete with Coors beer was the perfect night-cap to a busy day.

Much of what was discussed at the Cincinnati Tea Party could be summed up into not apologizing for what Americans are, but rather, being proud of it. It is clearly time to stop feeling sorry for every other country on earth and to make ourselves less just to make other countries feel equal. I know I’m done with such things, and according to Matt, Doc, Rusty, Ann, and all the others, they are too. The biggest difference between those at the Tax Day Rally and everyone outside of that room is that the attendees have arrived first to a conclusion that is inevitable—that progressives like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and many others, have taken America to a bad place, and people don’t like it. My friends are the first to express that displeasure—and soon, so will the rest of the nation. imageThe old WINO tricks won’t work this time, as an $18 trillion-dollar deficit looms over the richest nation in the world—caused by progressive mismanagement of American resources. And once the rest of society gets to the level of frustration that the people attending the Cincinnati Tea Party rally displayed on April 15th, 2014 in Eastgate, Ohio—WINO’s like Hillary will be in a whole lot of trouble—and I’ll celebrate with an even bigger hamburger. The secret to American excess is not that The United States consumes too many natural resources, but that it has produced so much—because of capitalism. If more nations throughout the world adopted capitalism over socialism, they’d discover excesses of their own and would be a whole lot less miserable.

Beating the IRS: The Pride of the Liberty Township Tea Party

imageOn April 15th, “Tax Day” I woke up with a special sense of pride experienced the night before. Behind the trees of my front yard, seen above, and across the golf course behind them, Jordon Sekulow flew in from Washington D.C. to personally thank the members of the Liberty Township Tea Party for their fight against the IRS. Sekulow is from the American Center for Law and Justice and is handling the civil case against the IRS on behalf of their unjust harassment against liberty groups—specifically the Liberty Township Tea Party. The LTTP had a meeting at The Elks Lodge, which I think is the best golf course in Cincinnati painting a picturesque evening of cold beer with fantastic views out the north windows silhouetting Jordon as he spoke to the large group of Tea Party patriots.

Without the Liberty Township Tea Party sticking up for themselves during the IRS case, it is likely that Louis Lerner would have never been forced to take the “fifth.” The story would have died quickly as it was planned. It was Justin Binik Thomas and The Liberty Township Tea Party who refused to go quietly into the night resulting in the congressional testimony that forced Lerner to implicate herself by default. The primary issue with Lerner is not that she took the “fifth” but that she provided testimony, then took her constitutional right trying to avoid cross-examination. That was a big no, no, and that mistake was forced in essence by the American Center for Law and Justice in its case against the IRS who was able to take the Liberty Township Tea Party case because the issue was pressed. The ACLJ needs clients otherwise they cannot conduct a case—and the Liberty Township Tea Party gave it to them—and the whole battle took place essentially in my front yard. And that makes me very proud.

Without the LTTP this article from Breitbart.com would have never been written: Former IRS official Louis Lerner and her colleagues at the tax agency were under a tremendous amount of pressure from President Obama and other Democrats to scrutinize a Tea Party applicant for public disclosure, despite rules protecting the privacy of unapproved applications, according to a staff report from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

For example, in emails regarding how the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision could imperil the Democrats’ majority in the Senate, Lerner wrote that she hoped the Federal Election Commission would “save the day,” apparently by curtailing political speech.

In another email referencing a news article about the businessmen and benefactors Charles and David Koch, Lerner suggested the IRS should begin a “project” to rein in political speech but to craft it in such a way as to avoid the appearance of focusing on political activity.

“We do need a c4 project next year,” Lerner wrote. While she initially said, “my object is not to look for political activity,” later in the exchange she acknowledged that it will examine political activity. “We need to be cautious so it isn’t a per se political project.  More a c4 project that will look at levels of lobbying and pol. Activity along with exempt activity.”

Lerner is the only IRS staffer who refused to testify before Congress, so the report relies solely on information garnered from “e-mails, documents, and other testimony about her cracking down on tax exempt organizations that exercise their rights to free political speech,” the Republican staff on the Oversight Committee says.

One e-mail thread turned to the possibility of whether a Tea Party applicant would challenge the IRS ruling in court. Lerner said that Tea Party groups would litigate because they are “itching for a Constitutional challenge.”

The emails show concern from Lerner about the Citizens United case decision hurting Democrats in the upcoming Senate elections. One document shows Lerner saying the Supreme Court gave the issue to the IRS “to fix the problem.”

She said, “The Supreme Court dealt a huge blow, overturning a 100-year old precedent that basically corporations couldn’t give directly to political campaigns. And everyone is up in arms because they don’t like it. The Federal Election Commission can’t do anything about it. They want the IRS to fix the problem.”

After a senior advisor emailed her about the political danger Democrats could be placed in, she replied in an e-mail, “Perhaps the FEC will save the day.”

The Oversight Committee points out that Lerner mishandled 6103 taxpayer information by dealing with such data from her personal e-mail account. Lerner, however, told Congress under oath in Novmber of 2013, “I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations.” In a November 2013 letter from Daniel Werfel, Werfel writes, “We do not permit IRS officials to send taxpayer information to their personal email addresses.” Werfel stresses that this is the case even if information is redacted.

Ultimately, the Oversight report says, Lerner personally placed all Tea Party applicants through a “multi-tier review.” An IRS employee testified that Lerner “sent [him an] e-mail saying that when these cases need to go through multi-tier review and they will eventually have to go to [Judy Kindell, Lerner’s senior technical advisor] and the Chief Counsel’s office.” A D.C. IRS employee said this level of scrutiny had no precedent.

The head of the IRS office in Cincinnati disputes Lerner’s claim–and President Obama’s Fox News interview with Bill O’Reilly–that the scrutiny on Tea Party cases was only a local issue, saying, “[Y]es, there were mistakes made by folks in Cincinnati as well [as] D.C. but the D.C. office is the one who delayed the processing of the cases.”


All of that investigation started with the same Tea Party group that met at The Elks Golf Course on April 14th, 2014. If not for them, the IRS case would have ended as quickly as it started, and Louis Lerner would still hold her position as an activist for the Obama administration at the front of the powerful government agency the IRS. The evidence shown above that Louis Lerner was corrupt and everything that Tea Party groups feared about their government is extraordinarily clear one year after the story initially broke. Because of the Liberty Township Tea Party, a new day in America is emerging, one where people aren’t so terrified of the IRS and the government—where more people than ever are coming out from hiding and telling their stories of harassment and paperwork terrorism issued against them by the federal government. As usual, such things begin with just a few brave souls who help usher in movements that change the direction of society in general. And for me, I will always live with the pride of knowing that one of the biggest battles in our lifetimes took place in my front and back yard—with my friends and neighbors in a prideful community called Liberty Township who refused to back down when villains presented themselves with overwhelming force, and ever-present determination to impose themselves as the latest dictators in a long chain of human failure. In Liberty Township, those dictators were turned away, and slapped down in embarrassment.

The Black Lightning Wild West Show: Traditional bullwhip artists at their “Best”

leave a comment »

Not far off from a personal request from the NBA star LaBrone James to entertain his children, Richard and Donna Best asked me to spend a little time with them freshening up their media presence online.  As a traditional couple deeply committed to western arts for several generations now they needed some updated footage to continue offering their Wild West show to audience everywhere continuing a tradition they advanced for more than 3500 live performances.  Another mutual friend of ours David Crain has become a prized bull whip maker for Richard’s shows so we all met up at Gery Deer’s studio to film some of Richard and Donna’s act for a new video featuring some of their highlights.

The show is called the Black Lightning Wild West Show and it is a throwback to the old vaudeville performances that were so popular a hundred years ago, to a period in America where value still ruled.  So I didn’t have to think twice to help them.  Their goals are my goals, and they do a lot of good traveling The United States advancing western arts keeping that tradition alive.

Richard and his wife are regulars at the Annie Oakley Western Showcase that I attend every year and unfortunately we are all so busy, especially David, Gery, and myself that we seldom can align our schedules to meet together outside of Annie Oakley.  David Crain from Heartbeat Artistry has emerged as a top whip maker in the field of nylon whips. Being a normally kangaroo hide whip guy who nearly exclusively uses Terry Jacka whips out of Australia, Crain has won me over.  His whips are very fast, and balanced.  He was the same whip maker who built my grandson his first three bullwhips which were given to him when he was born, and can be seen practicing with below at age 1 and a half.

Nylon whips are really optimal for indoor performances which Richard Best has a great deal of experience with, so he and David Crain have become quite well acquainted with each other.  It was good to get together with them for a day of whip cracking, eating pizza and catching up on stories that have occurred for the last several of months.  Of their most unusual adventures since we all last spoke at the 2013 Annie Oakley festival was the Labrone James party for his children where Richard and Donna were brought in along with live circus animals particularly a giant elephant to personally perform for James and his entourage.

One of the coolest new tricks done by Richard and Donna was one where his wife held a dime in her fingertips that Richard cut out fearlessly.  That trick was also seen in the promotional video put together above. They were very good at it, and before filming routinely littered the floor of the studio with dimes knocked from his wife’s fingers.  A dime is a pretty small target.

There is a lot wrong with the world, but the Black Lightning Wild West Show is not one of them.  Just knowing they are out there doing the good work of preserving western arts makes me very happy.  It was a pleasure to assemble some of their footage for marketing purposes demanded by our modern times.  Business cards and word of mouth referrals are no longer sufficient in our high-tech world, so western arts must adapt accordingly.  The tradition is still very low tech, but the method of letting employers like Labrone James know about them must compete directly with everything else out there.  So I was happy to help.

We ended the day with the typical reserve.  I can’t think of a single time that we’ve all gathered where I didn’t leave feeling like I under-anticipated the level of fun that we’d all have.  This time was no different.  We found ourselves stalling for time once I had gathered up all the shots I needed.  We extended the day unnecessarily for another hour, but eventually it did come to a close.  I spent the rest of my evening playing X-Wing with my brother at my niece’s birthday party, David Crain and his family went back to his whip making shop in a Middletown backyard, and Gery went back to being an independent television producer in the Dayton area where he just recently completed a segment with Phil Donahue.  The sun set on the day, but it rose just a bit higher for the art of the Wild West.  And in that field, the Black Lightning Wild West Show is carrying proudly a tradition in America that is nearly as old as the nation, and important to its very soul.

West Chester Chickens: The roots of a community built on self-reliance

with 4 comments

Those pesky zoning people are back at it in West Chester, Ohio picking on Danielle Richardson who recently moved to one of the most successful and financially lucrative areas in the Midwest.  Like cowards in the night, they left a message on her door informing her that she would not be able to keep the nine chickens that she has in her back yard because it’s in violation to a ridiculous zoning resolution.  Richardson was told that her pet chickens would have to go because West Chester Twp. does not permit farm animals in residential neighborhoods, according to spokeswoman Barb Wilson. “In our definition, when you talk about farm animals, poultry are clearly identified as such, chickens, horses, cows, sheep, goats would be considered farm animals.”


What Danielle Richardson doesn’t know is that the zoning terrorists who left the note on her door are using zoning to carry West Chester Twp. into a city classification as local progressives understand that before such a measure can be made, references to West Chester’s rural past must be erased.  Farm animals have been a part of West Chester’s past for as long as I can remember.  I remember when cows came up to the fence behind the Wendy’s restaurant by the corner of Cox Road and Tylersville, and half a dozen homes between there and the Lakota high school had farm animals around their homes.  That symbol of self-reliance, of the farmer and country living is what made West Chester attractive for development, because people did not want to live in a city and liked driving by large fields, cows, horses and other farm animals—images that they couldn’t get in a city environment.

But slowly these new residents have changed the nature of West Chester from a rural community to one of a progressive New England suburb, and with that image has come a zoning adherence to ICLEI, (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) which is the architect behind the United Nations Agenda 21 strategies.  The eventual goal of Agenda 21 is to pull residents out of the suburbs and back into the cities where their behavior can be carefully controlled through regulation—which is what is happening to Richardson.

Zoning officials do not want residents to be self-reliant, to have chickens where they can produce their own eggs.  In Richardson’s neighborhood she gives her neighbors free eggs as a gift.  This is something the ICLEI people do not want to see—because they want to control the issuance of eggs.  They want Richardson to get her eggs from the local Kroger where regulators have their hands in on the action.  They certainly don’t want to support self-sustaining lifestyles—which is the real message behind their angst toward farm animals.  They certainly aren’t protecting the home values of neighborhoods with such zoning regulations, because the homes were built around the farm culture that is at the roots of West Chester.

My grandparents had a farm on Seward road very close to the Erie Canal which was some of the best farmland in the world.  The valley below Beckett Ridge which flooded often had some wonderful farms which extended all the way to the west into Fairfield.  My grandfather married my grandmother by taking a canal boat to the east where he met her at a dance at Port Union, which was next to the current drive-thru that is diagonal from the United Dairy Farmers at the corner of Port Union Road and 747.  Many people have no knowledge that the Erie Canal ran right along those railroad tracks and is still visible as a relic to West Chester’s past.  I grew up knowing many of the farmers in the region.  They bailed hay, slaughtered cows, had horses, goats and just about every kind of animal imaginable.  At a minimum they had chickens—because that is how they had eggs for breakfast.  Over the last 30 years, people who wanted to be close to these activities moved to West Chester, people like Danielle Richardson.

With the new homes came pretentious progressives and their big government regulations and social tampering trained in the ways of ICLEI.  The far away entity of The United Nations is jealous of American self-reliance, and they certainly find the farmers of North America repulsive—and through Agenda 21 wish them regulated out of existence.  That is how zoning ordinances like the one Barb Wilson cited came to be.  But that is not how it’s supposed to be.  Those ICLEI worshippers desire to change West Chester, not preserve it, and getting rid of chickens in a neighborhood are part of their strategy.

Danielle Richardson made some good arguments in her reasoning for keeping her pet chickens.  She used all the ICLEI buzz words, like “sustainable living” and “green” friendly which are the weapons zoning typically uses to alter behavioral lifestyles.  After all, what is greener than raising chickens and eating the eggs produced by them?  But that is not what zoning has in mind when they talk about “sustainable living.”  They wish to handcuff human beings so that nature can prevail and incorporate all living into city-state control and regulation.  And they plan to pay for their offensive through taxes that adversely destroy private ownership of property.  Danielle Richardson took the spirit of West Chester back the other way—toward self reliance, which is what ICLEI finds so repulsive about American lifestyles.

West Chester has within its zoning administrators, as does virtually every community in America—progressive terrorists who salivate for the opportunity to regulate society into a direction of their strategic choosing.  That choosing was not shaped by the traditions of a community like West Chester but the far away fools at The United Nations and their ICLEI arm of bureaucrats.  It is likely that Richardson had no idea that she would cause so much of a ruckus over her personal desire to have chickens on her property, but ICLEI seeks to regulate how private property owners use their land.   The strategy at ICLEI is to impose themselves on private property ownership to the point where taxation and heavy regulation make investment not attractive.  At that point government will own those properties and control what goes on there—and chickens will be a thing of the past.  Government regulators want to be the one to place eggs on the doorsteps of neighbors instead of Danielle Richardson because they want to gain control over what people eat and when they eat it.  In that way, they want to change West Chester, not preserve it.  They want to remove from its past the image of self-reliance and personal sovereignty and change it into a city of tax producing citizens under the control of petty regulators and zoning officials.

I have a personal recommendation for Danielle Richardson–at the zoning hearing, tell those idiots what you really think of them.  Let them have it, because the next step in that process is in your favor.  There are friendly ears above the zoning bureaucrats who know exactly what is going on, and you’ll get to keep your chickens.  Just don’t yield to the zoning people.  This fight goes far beyond chickens and eggs—but to the heart of what it means to be a property owner in America—during a time when the rest of the world wants to be the supplier of the eggs.  Yet they wish to do so without having chickens to lay them.  ICLEI is about to discover which comes first, the chicken or the egg.  Danielle Richardson already knows that answer—and the rest of the world is about to find out.  They want to control the eggs, but they don’t respect the chickens that make them.

F**k the Earth: Save man’s mind

leave a comment »

I enjoy a nice babbling brook running through the mountains surrounded by trees and fresh air illuminated by sunrise firelight. Often I have slept on the ocean front to the sound of waves beating on a beach as a steady breeze pours in from offshore thunderstorms lighting up the distant night clouds like cannon fire from a distant battle. I have pondered often the forces of a cliff face as I rappelled down it and marveled at the magnanimity of nature. I have equally stared deep into the heavens and contemplated the countless galaxies of space and considered the perplexing reality of a multiverse. But what most impresses me is the mind of man and the ability of that species to overcome obstacles, invent tools of creation, and extend beyond the limits of nature to something new. What is marveled at when large mountains are observed, or the beauty of a forest, or the running water of a stream is the creation of nature into activity of which our short-term lives will only witness a fraction of. However, it is still destruction that is observed, mountains were caused by tectonic plates being forced together by earth forces, and trees grow, die, fall down and decompose, just like human beings. Water falls from the sky in the form of rain, runs across the earth, is consumed sometimes by creatures like humans, disposed of as waste and evaporates back into the sky to begin the process again. The work of man’s mind is the only life form in known existence to take all the raw materials of the planet and organize them creatively against the tide of chaos that exists in nature. A skyscraper is a deliberate construction of mankind that is organized and useful as opposed to the mountain that is simply the result of opposing forces colliding.

The current green movement which is simply the next generation of communism is attempting to take mankind back to worship of the earth the way tribal groups have in the mystic past. Their sole intention is to turn worship of the earth into a religion that has political consequences and their method is one of regression—of angst against the creation of mankind. They look at the creations of man, the space ships, the cars, the buildings and they hate them like natives screaming at lightning streaking across the sky. Their answer is to conduct a rain dance to appease the gods creating the lighting. Meanwhile, inventors like Tesla actually took the mind of man toward creating their own lightning. Inventors created irrigation as a way to take charge of their own destinies and stop wasting time doing a rain dance to appease some stupid god. Forget about rubbing a couple of sticks together to make fire, or waiting for lightning to strike and ignite a small blaze, mankind made ovens, and furnaces, and air conditioning units to control their environment so that they could be comfortable and invent even more things instead of running around looking for sticks to catch fire just to cook food.

Nature is the construction of Mother Earth, and the galaxies the inventions of the universe. But are those constructs superior to the equations E=MC2 or the nanotechnology of cell sized bots that can repair human flesh? When was the last time the earth invented anything new, or Jupiter, or Neptune? What have those natural products done except float in space and be bombarded by asteroids—their fates tied to their proximity to a dying sun at the center of a solar system? Where will the creeks, animals, and mountain ranges be during the next meteor collision, or the eventual explosion of energy at Old Faithful in Yosemite? They’ll all be destroyed, and what will there be left of anything on earth if the mind of mankind is extinguished as a retreat to the primordial worship of Mother Nature?

I would argue that the mind of man is more important than the saving of Mother Earth. The earth is inferior to man’s mind—the inventions, the potential, and the ability to shape its own destiny in spite of natural elements, such as planetary restrictions, life spans, and proximity in space to heating sources like planetary balls of fire we call suns. There was never a turtle that built an economy as sophisticated as humans, or an otter that built a train station. No bird ever invented a light bulb. And ants don’t write books, make movies, or create sophisticated music. We are amazed that dolphins and whales show signs of intelligent life, but even they are about as intellectually wise as an average 4-year old human—and what is so special about that? The reason we respect these creatures so much is that they are at least close to human intelligence—so why would human beings yield to them?

The real issue is one of creation and the value of those creations. Are the creations of nature more valuable than the creation of mankind? My answer is that mankind’s inventions are more valuable. Both, man’s and nature’s acts of creation are destructive in nature. Mountain ranges are the results of terrible destructive forces, and trees are daily fighting it out in a battle for sunlight. They don’t whip out stones to throw at each other, or fire guns, but trees are constantly at war with one another. One tree will spread its branches out over another one that is smaller to try to choke off its light so that the roots aren’t fighting for the same water supply. Don’t environmentalists know that? Are they so stupid but to look at trees and not see life forms at war with one another? Trees are not sitting in a forest singing campfire songs to each other living in harmony. They are fighting—and some of their battles go on for 50 or more years. The only reason humans don’t see them is because the battles occur without human reference and time frames. Every day spiders are catching other insects to devour for their personal consumption, mice are being eaten by snakes, fish are being eaten by bigger fish, and Great White Sharks are eating dolphins.

At some point the modern worshipers of Mother Earth decided that the way to deal with these tragedies is to revert to the past worship of earth as a deity and to appeal to its sensibilities hoping that human life would be spared some of this tragedy. But only mankind has even attempted to solve any of these destructive problems. At least humans know to replant a forest, to re-grow the food they consume, and to not poison the water they drink with sophisticated filtration systems. Only a human being has sought to mimic the abilities of a bird, the hunting agility of a lion, the communication aptitude of a dolphin, and actually offer alternatives to the stupidity of nature—the inevitable destruction that is always just around the corner with the next black hole consumption, or planetary impact.

Every global environmentalist on earth is wrong in its worship of earth. Earth is dying as we speak—it may take a few billion more years, but if left alone—it is dead. It will not live forever—it is not a god. It is not worthy of worship. Earth is a tool for man’s mind. It is meant to be a lunching point for human consciousness and nothing more. It can only be hoped that 4 billion years from now to 10 billion years that the minds of man will still live in the universe and will punch beyond the confines of that barrier to whatever is beyond it. Earth will have long been gone by then, every turtle, every bird, every fish, every drop of water in the ocean ripped off the planet to become water molecules in the vacuum of space by expansion of the sun. Every idiot who professes worship of nature at the expense of man’s mind is preaching doom for both. The earth has its best chance because of mankind, not in spite of it. Of the two, man’s mind is more valuable and if one has to be saved, it must be the imagination of human beings.

Every advocate of communism, socialism, social justice, and environmental conservation is ignoring the basic rules of our universe and stand in defiance of nature when they profess to preserve earth because they think it’s pretty. They ignore the violence; the very foundations of all life—that they are built on violence and destruction. Only the human being stands in rebellion to this trend by advancing toward an unknown intelligence only it can create—because it is not yet present among all known life forms. It is time to abandon the fools who do not believe that man does not have dominion over all the earth—because they do—and that is the will of nature as a species that is vastly superior to every other life form on earth. Its time to stop feeling guilty about it for the good of everyone, and everything involved.

Tomorrow’s Winter Soldier: Agenda 21 predictions for the next 20 years of Liberty Township after the new police levy

with 4 comments

A lot of people who do not know history well, think that the term “Winter Soldier” is an invention of Marvel Comics for the recently released Captain America movie.  It is however named after the 1971 Winter Soldier hearings held during the Vietnam War where veterans talked about the atrocities they had imposed on the enemy and civilians that made them feel terrible.  America had a hard time with the information because it took away the illusion of feel good patriotism that many wanted to believe about American troops and showed that given guns, superior firepower, and a typical bureaucratic chain of command typical human beings American or otherwise will abuse their power easily even under conditions of minor stress.  Things get much, much worse under major stress.  On a previous article about Agenda 21 I showed the video published by the socialist organization Democracy Now featuring another Winter Soldier conference held in 2008 where a former member of the 8th Marines from the Kilo Company of the 3rd Battalion revealed all his war crimes to a panel and audience.  Democracy Now of course was salivating over the testimony because it was proof of how corrupt American imperialism was throughout the world, and put pressure on American military figures to withdrawal from engagements.  As much as I do not support socialists, tree hugging hippies, communist greenie winnies, and environmental wackos, the video of Jon Michael Turner at the Winter Solider testimony was brutal, and evidence to a much larger impending problem centering on The United Nations and their pursuit of Agenda 21.  No matter how well-trained, no matter how well equipped, no matter how morally correct one might think that they are—when powerful weapons are put into the hands of kids like Turner and rewarded for killings just to get a 4 day pass by his superior officers—lots of innocent people will be harmed.  Under the United Nations proposed Agenda 21, which they hope to keep under control at the local level of government—globally through ICLEI (International Council for Local environmental Initiatives) the end game is massive control of the population by police using force to instigate fear and respect.

Now that some time has passed and people are somewhat ready to deal with the reality of Agenda 21—largely because of Glenn Beck’s recent novel which has been stewing about for a few years now, it is time to declare that America should abandon the United Nations Agenda 21 proposals unequivocally.  That means that local politicians who support ICLEI must be harassed so to find themselves between the desires of the U.N. and their friends and neighbors who elect them—so to prevent future Winter Soldier events that eclipse those of the Vietnam and Iraq experiences.  The atrocities have not yet been committed, and to prevent them all participants who support ICLEI must have the fight taken to them before we find future Winter Soldier’s on our doorsteps shooting men in the head so that they can rape their wives and daughters.  If all the elements of our present day are added up, that is the end result for our eventual futures.  The atrocities won’t happen in some far away land but right in our back yards in America and it will be our local politicians trained to support ICLEI who will bring it to us.

In my local community there is a police levy that is up for renewal.  Just six months ago voters passed a tax increase against themselves to support the local school, which is largely committed to The United Nations backed Common Core program.  Public schools seek to place all children under the control of government nurturing and away from individual instruction by parents.  Now the police want more money which is desired because government jobs are overpaid so to get viable candidates to hold those positions even when they suspect that organizations like ICLEI are up to no good in relation to American sovereignty.  When school teachers and cops make $75,000 to $85,000 a year with a nice pension that they wouldn’t get anywhere else, they tend to put on the blinders to potential dangers—because knowledge of those dangers is inconvenient to their paychecks.  So like the bored idiots that they are, they have blanketed my community with their campaign signs asking for residents to sign up for another ICLEI initiative, an expansion of law enforcement.  In Liberty Township where all this is taking place, there are two large developments that the trustees are promoting which indicates an increased need for police in the future, the Carriage Hill development and the Liberty Way development, both of which I support as economic engines—but detest the Agenda 21 type of ICLEI initiatives promoted by the zoning department headed by Jon West.

Jon West once went to Hilton Head Island to make his argument against the newly built Frisch’s restaurant just off Cincinnati Dayton in Eastern Liberty Township.  He lobbied as Director of Planning and Zoning for the Liberty Township Zoning Commission to prevent a Big Boy statue from going up in front of the proposed restaurant.  His background is as a planner for the Butler County Planning Division.  He worked previously at Entran PLC, and was educated at The University of Cincinnati.  He is associated with the American Planning Association and the American Institution of Certified Planners.  Jon West likely has no idea what Agenda 21 is, but he has been accused of advancing it into Liberty Township.  What he does know is that the U.C. fully supports the Climate Protection Action Plan, (The Green Cincinnati Plan) published on June 19, 2008 and that the alliance between the University of Cincinnati and ICLEI is centered on that document which is the presiding reason behind the streetcar project in Cincinnati.  As young zoning planners full of career zeal and gumption this is how local bureaucrats are trained to move into their communities so to invoke Agenda 21 strategies.  Jon obviously doesn’t care about the minds behind ICLEI, he has simply taken what was taught to him and applied it to the world, just as thousands just like him are making a real menace of things in America to this very day.  He’s certainly not alone in this assault, he is but one of many—but is the example here because of my reference to the politics of my community as a sample.

Of that same community, even though the Carriage Hill development is a community of upper priced homes, there are apartments designated to fill that land use plan which was established many years ago on that section of 747.  The way West softens up developers to the ICLEI philosophy is to pick small fights with them over things like Big Boy signs in front of Frisch’s restaurants, or leaving the garage door up at West Chester Lawn and Garden store giving zoning a position of authority to harass business owners on, a similar way that police harass political targets.  This makes developers much more willing to bend a little when constructing projects so to fulfill the Agenda 21 desires of zoning and planning.  There will be Agenda 21 implementations into Carriage Hill and Liberty Way which is a concession that European planners anticipated twenty years ago when they came up with all these schemes through ICLEI and Socialist International advancing the dialogue.  What European planners really wanted was wealth redistribution and a plan to return development projects back to the earth by removing human beings from it.  With such planned expansions come higher taxation and market drivers such as apartment dwellers who tend to vote in support of school levies which feed programs like Common Core at Lakota with mind numbed teachers to teach what the state tells them to. Liberty Township currently doesn’t have a police department.  The Butler County sheriff’s department patrols the area and this new levy is being sold as a way to continue that application of police resources.  However, Liberty Township Trustee Christine Matacic is supporting this police levy because the new developments will need increased police coverage and the local public schools of Lakota need officers to protect students from school shootings—which is all the rage from recent news reports.  But all these demands on resources were caused by land use plans created by planners trained to support ICLEI and its parent group Socialist International long ago before the money was even lined up to develop Carriage Hill and Liberty Way.

The results of those planned developments are more cops in future elections.  Liberty Township will desire to have its own police force, which will then cause more taxes on property owners.  And of course Lakota will be looking for another school levy sometime around 2017, then again around 2023.  Eventually, after another 20 years when the economy collapses under the weight of all that taxation, and businesses flee the heavy regulations that people like Jon West spent his life creating in Liberty Township guided by the invisible hand of ICLEI for the entire duration of a career, everything will spiral out of control.  When that happens property values will drop, like they have in modern-day Evendale, Fairfield, Mt. Healthy and Lincoln Heights, the nice apartments of Carriage Hill today will become tomorrow’s “Fountains” and crime will move into the neighborhood as businesses flee high taxes.  Jon West will by then be retired and living in a condo somewhere, Christine Matacic will also be retired as well as all the current police officers.  But new ones will replace them—and these will be trained to Common Core standards, and will get even more exposure to ICLEI than West did—and they will tamper more with local government than ever, crushing innovation and basically turning nice Liberty Township into another version of dilapidated Detroit.  Yet the police will still try to sustain themselves and will be looking for something to do, and will become tomorrow’s Winter Soldiers.

If Clinton has his way, his wife will be President of the United States and he can then bring America under full control of The United Nations ending Constitutional sovereignty and upon command those Liberty Township cops will answer U.N. mandates which is when the really sinister aspects of Agenda 21 kick in.  At that time police will kick in our doors, have their way with our families, steal our property and begin the process of pushing citizens back toward the cities where Cincinnati will have new apartments and a streetcar waiting on them for transportation.   The developments of Liberty Township will be bulldozed flat so that the earth can reclaim the world and people will be heavily regulated with a kind of religious zeal to protect the environment from human minds.  The religious freaks at Socialist International, the people ultimately behind ICLEI, the University of Cincinnati involvement with Climate Protection Action Plan, (The Green Cincinnati Plan) and the training of zoning planners like Jon West will then achieve their preservation of Mother Earth—which was always the goal.

Meanwhile the United Nations will get their army paid for by the American tax payer as the demand was created by American politicians artificially through zoning and planning.  New rules at a feverish pace will be enacted against human impact with the earth and to enforce those laws will be the police officers of today’s levy attempts.  They are tomorrow’s Winter Soldiers, the armed United Nations gatekeepers who kick down doors, rape innocent women, cut off the heads of our neighbors and steal everything we ever built and desired to build in our lifetimes.  These new Winter Soldiers will do it because they can, because there is inherit in human beings a desire to abuse power especially when they have guns, and the rest of society doesn’t.  And mankind will regress backwards into the mold of a primitive.

The only way to stop all that was mentioned above is to stop people like Jon West now, before the damage is irreparable.  The path is already established.  The government workers like Jon West, Christine Matacic, and Butler County Sheriff Jones do not have the ability to think so deeply into things, because they are government workers—they are just cogs in the wheel of progress—only that progress was not designed in Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War in America, but in Europe under the organization Socialist International inspired by the communist attempts of the Soviet Union and the philosophic works of Immanuel Kant, and Karl Marx.  The European will not be sympathetic to the stories of the future Winter Soldiers who will testify that they cut off the arms and legs of men as they slowly bled to death watching police and military personally rape the women they love before killing the women  too—for no other reason but to get a few days off by their division commander.  That is the future of Agenda 21 and if it is not rejected completely—every green initiative included—every electric car, every smart car, every smart meter, every instance of Common Core, every carbon credit—it will be in your very near future.  If you are under 40, you will see it for sure.  If you are under 60, you will likely see it.  If you are under 30, you will wonder how we arrived at a place where you are forced to live in a downtown apartment sharing space with three other people and suffering through water rations even though there is a river 500 yards away that will be illegal to drink from.  Places like Liberty Township will be gone and all their developments bulldozed flat becoming vast sums of farmland once again.  And the lives of the humans will be regulated to that of a dog managed by their masters at the United Nations and their blind, zealous dedication to the goddess Mother Earth and the sacrifices she demands.  The Winter Soldiers of tomorrow are the cops looking for levy support, and are suing current trustees because they dare to stand in the way of Agenda 21 initiatives.  This is not wild fantasy, or anti-levy propaganda—it is a fact of life as clear as an open window with the glass removed.  It is yet another way that communists seek to destroy capitalism—this time they are coming under the disguise of compassion and safety—but behind their smiles are the teeth of a wolf looking to consume us all.

The European socialists are coming after American life–they are in fact at war with it.   You better defend it before the Winter Soldiers arrive at your door.  You stand a better chance now than you will then.

Save Money by Voting NO on Liberty Township Police Levy: Cops are like weeds in a garden

with 7 comments

Police put out their signs for the upcoming May 6th replacement levy vote trying to convince homeowners to further accept high taxation as an acceptable means of community management of resources. To be honest, I have lived in Liberty Township for most of my 46 years, give and take a decade or so here and there, and have never had to call the police except to file a report. So long as I have the Second Amendment, they don’t do anything for me except show up after a crime is committed. I noticed that the big tax local Rino Republicans like Christine Matacic are supporting this tax along with my old friends the Terrys at the Carriage Hill development. They are conservatives of convenience. Carriage Hill is openly trying to bring in more people to the community so they can make money off them. Those outside investments enjoy police cars sitting around especially if those voters come from California or the New England states—it makes them feel safe. And Matacic is running for Butler County commissioner and wants the backing of the FOP in whatever form she can get it. But that doesn’t mean the rest of us should pay for their desires. This is what I submitted to the Today’s Pulse as a “Letter to the Editor” which should appear in the upcoming weekend edition on the matter.

Save Money; vote “NO” on Liberty Township Police Levy

There have been some complaints about how high the taxes are in Liberty Township especially after the Lakota levy took effect in 2014. Sheriff Jones supported that levy saying that some of the money gained from levy approval would go toward police in Lakota schools. Now just a few months’ later Liberty Township trustees are supporting a “replacemet” levy to pay for those same additional Lakota police officers coming up on the May 6th ballot. The signs from the police are already up.

Of course the argument is that taxes will not increase but will in fact cost $94 per $100,000 in property assessment to fund $2.5 million in projected spending for the 2014 police fund. Clearly the police and the school are double dipping in their projection numbers. The sheriff lives in Liberty Township and since he came out in favor of the Lakota levy, then it should be his task to figure out how to provide police coverage for his community without additional taxes.

This time they won’t be able to say that the tax is “for the kids.” This election is a chance to take back some of the money wrestled away from us during the Lakota election of November 2013. It is a chance to lower our taxes during a time when that’s what most everyone needs. I will be voting a big, “NO.” Elections have consequences and by voting NO, voters have a chance to let the police shoulder that burden instead of the homeowners.

When politicians and developers support more police, they are essentially stating that they want police to sit on the side of the road and write tickets which costs us more money in taxes through fines and fees, so they can get an indirect benefit specific to them. They also indicate that this levy is to pay for the 20-plus detectives who are still looking for the student who left the shooting threat letter in the girl’s bathroom just days before the Lakota levy election of 2013—which they still have not found. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. The police haven’t been very successful—so what have they been doing?

Lt. Morgan Dallman is the division commander for Liberty Twp and stated in favor of the levy that deputies responded to 16,000 calls for service in 2013, so to justify all the needed police activity. That comes out to approximately 43.835 calls per day in little bitty Liberty Township covering every domestic violent episode, every car wreck, every kid who tries to burn down their house with their parents in it, every bomb threat, every vandalism case–everything. What he failed to point out was that many of the calls probably went something like this, “hey Bill, where are you?” Bill answered professionally on his radio leaning in to his left shoulder looking very serious, “I’m at United Dairy Farmers getting a milk shake.” The caller then says, “Hey, some of the fire guys down at the 747 south house have a good game of Call of Duty going. You up for it?” Bill looked at the cashier hoping she didn’t hear, which of course she did, because she told me about it hoping that I’d write a story in Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom. “I’ll be right there,” Bill says making his voice sound urgent and professional. The cashier holding back a smile gives him back his change and the cop leaves as the UDF attendants break out laughing. That is just a sample of the 16,000 calls mentioned by Lt. Dallman. Sometimes the call is for Halo, or Madden football—so it’s not always the same thing—to be fair.

My friends down in West Chester are doing it right. The trustees down there have already told voters not to pass a tax increase for their police department because the cops make too much money. In response, the police are suing the president of the West Chester trustees. CLICK TO REVIEW. In Liberty Township there is no such courage. Instead, they just lay down and let the FOP run right over them making up facts, inflating their statistical numbers to include every cat rescued, and every time a neurotic levy supporting husband and wife fight over the television remote. When it comes to actual crime, there isn’t any because bandits have come to learn that Liberty Township residents—at least the older ones tend to paint their cars with the blood of criminals. Later the police show up to file a report—but they certainly aren’t the deterrent to crime. Gun carrying homeowners are, and there is a LOT of guns in Liberty Township. A lot of GUNS. Enough to equip a small army if needed. Word gets around and it will stay that way unless the police actually drop off criminals hoping to instigate crimes to gain support of a levy. I’ve seen it done in Mason, so it’s certainly not beyond imagination.

I doubt people will vote themselves a tax savings on May 6th 2014. Liberty Township has too many new—weakened, neurotic, insecure parents who are still in their early 30s doubting their ability to handle the Second Amendment the way it was designed, so they look toward the police to protect them. But this is a chance to actually take back some of the tax money stolen from us through past manipulations if enough people would stand up for themselves. We’ll see, I know how I’ll be voting—and it won’t be for more police. Too many cops around isn’t good for anybody but their union numbers. They are too expensive, always behind the action, and simply represent the arm of politics and their authority—which is obviously deeply flawed. Cops are like weeds in a nice garden, the more you water them, the more of them you get until eventually they overrun the beauty of all the nice flowers and trees planted there. One of the reasons that Liberty Township is so nice is that there are fewer cops—weeds. Giving them more money will just make more of them and that isn’t good for Liberty Township’s future, or the people who live here.
