Here is the official explanation from 700 WLW as to why Darryl Parks is no longer employed by Clear Channel, or hosting his Saturday radio show.
Darryl Parks has stood by me in tough times, especially when saying controversial things were needed. When 700 WLW desperate to separate themselves from the memory of Doc Thompson supported the antics of a bunch of Lakota Levy supporters to assassinate my name, Darryl was there to stop it. Darryl Parks built the modern-day 700 WLW and he was a much respected executive at Clear Channel. Darryl made Clear Channel a lot of money. So it meant a lot to me that he put an end to the hit pieces against me from his employees on the radio following things I wrote which took an uber-man card to write. Darryl is one of the few people still working in the media that appreciates, and gives out man-cards when a man stands for something he believes in. So it’s my turn to support him for standing up for himself, and his radio industry in the face of an imperialistic FCC imposition that is being launched against AM stations in 2014. Darryl after a series of executive meetings wrote a blog posting that took an uber-man card to write because not a single other soul working in the radio industry had the guts to call out the FCC for what they are trying to do—which is another topic that we will explore in much more detail in subsequent articles. Not long after that blog posting, Darryl Parks was fired from not only 700 WLW, but from Clear Channel.
Below is the blog posting Darryl had written, as he wrote it. Knowing a bit about Darryl, I have a pretty good idea what he was thinking. The radio industry is under attack by the federal government through the FCC. Darryl likely rationalized that he could end his career quickly like a man, or quietly like a mouse—slowly over time the way the other people in his industry have chosen. The FCC is making dumb decisions based on the opinions of a very successful radio man—and he wanted to make sure they knew what a bunch of idiots they were. So he told them in a way that only Darryl Parks could. It took serious balls to do what he did—it took an uber-man card, which is very rare in this modern world of sell-outs, pussies, beta men, and back-stabbing social climbers. Most people attending these meetings with Darryl would likely agree with him, but all of them lacked the courage to say anything about it—because it might cost them their career. This is how evil spreads, when good men do nothing—especially when they know better.
I will miss Darryl on the radio at 700 WLW. But he knows what Doc Thompson already is doing, and my friend Matt Clark at WAAM, that the future of radio is not in FCC controlled stations. Popular media personalities like Parks, Thompson, and even Ben Swann from Fox 19, have all had to make personal decisions in the face of comfortable careers where good pay and security might otherwise shut their mouths. Swann left television in Cincinnati by his own decision. Thompson was fired from 700 WLW as one of the last hires of Darryl Parks before Darryl was promoted to an executive job that was a nationwide deal. And Darryl probably didn’t think that Clear Channel would fire him for what he said, but he likely didn’t care either because his industry under the current FCC policies will end anyway. He was simply meeting the tragedy head on. So read what Darryl said and consider the implication of his termination. The posting which appeared on his 700 WLW blog site is shown below. It is well written and full of interesting facts. The worst thing he said about the FCC was that they were a bunch of “circle jerks,” which they are. Darryl made an observed fact metaphorically speaking. Should that cost him his job? Of course not, especially when members of The White House have openly lied, cheated, and in some cases allegedly killed others to advance their agenda. But when the FCC controls things and don’t like the views of those who refuse to “play along nicely” terminations will occur in a New York minute because the goal is not justice, but compliance, and the best way to hurt a person like Darryl Parks is in the check book and take away his voice. It’s not like it was a conspiracy theory against Parks where the Obama White House or anybody else declared that Darryl had to go. Rather the infestation of the FCC by Obama type federal employees is going after certain types of characters the way the IRS went after conservative groups. In a publicly traded company that is very concerned about perception, the safe money is to keep your mouth shut and put up with the intrusion of know-nothing FCC “circle jerks.” Well, not Darryl, he is a man who loves his man card, and won’t give it up in trade for a corporate suit, and the security of a “circle jerk.” That is why I will always like Darryl Parks even if I can’t hear him every Saturday morning on 700 WLW.
Last Blog Entry by Darryl Parks at 700 WLW:
If you would allow me the indulgence of being the radio suit that I am in real life for just one blog, because something has me irritated in a major way.
There is finally a call, as the Federal Communications Commission put it recently, to revitalize the AM band. You know create and ease rules to allow station owners to be relieved of horrible burdens. You may have read about this in the press or online. If you’re in the broadcast industry you may have read about it in one of the industry rags.
You think just one of these industry rags would speak the truth about the FCC’s ideas, suggestions and concepts? Nope. As Kevin Bacon’s character in Animal House said, “Remain calm. All is well.” What a joke the FCC is. And sadly, what a joke the people in the radio industry are who are nodding along without thought or the ability to intelligently reason the basic concepts of physics.
While AM radio may suffer from numerous other issues, this will focus on technical limitations of the broadcast band and the ideas the FCC has moving forward.
AM radio or “amplitude modulation” was first. Even back in the 1920’s and 1930’s companies like RCA which sold radios, owned stations and had the NBC Radio Networks knew of limitations on the band, limitations such as “static.” RCA was so concerned about static they, through a really smart guy they employed, invented FM or “frequency modulation” and then buried the FM technology because they had too much money invested in AM stations. The “static” you hear on AM radio is interference.
The AM signal travels farther at night than during the day. Most AM radio stations change their signal patterns and/or reduce power at night to keep from interfering with other stations on the same frequency or adjacent frequencies. Stations like 700WLW are considered a “clear channel” station, meaning the station’s signal is broadcast in a non-directional pattern and is the only station on that frequency at night. The power is a booming 50,000 watts. Stations such as WSM-AM, WGN-AM, WLS-AM and WCBS-AM are also “clear channel” stations.
Today, besides interference from other stations, the AM band is also being interfered with by computers, cell phones, even those new energy savings light bulbs. This is why it may be more difficult for you to receive a good signal from an AM station these days.
Just last week at the yearly “circle jerk” gathering of broadcasters called the NAB/RAB Radio Show, FCC Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn announced a “Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” with 6…count ‘em…6 ideas to rid station owners of horrible burdens. What do these 6 ideas do? Increase interference! And no one. Not one freaking person in the industry press will talk about this. Obviously, they’re too busy copying press releases for their publications and pretending to be Kevin Bacon’s ROTC character.
Here are the 6 ideas proposed by the FCC.
Opening a one-time filing window, limited to current AM licensees and permittees, which will allow each to apply for one new FM translator station to fill in its service area.
An FM translator is a very low power FM signal, normally about 99 watts. The FCC figures there’s so much interference today on the AM band, as stations interfere with each other, why not spread the pain and cause more interference on the FM band. BRILLIANT!
Relaxing the AM daytime community coverage rule to allow existing AM broadcasters more flexibility to propose antenna site changes.
Translation: Stations that are non-viable can change their tower locations. (1) Non-viable stations probably don’t have the money to move a tower site, which will cost in the millions. (2) If a non-viable station does change its tower site, rules would be relaxed on these stations allowing for more interference with other stations. (3) If a non-viable station simply changes its daytime pattern at its current site it will cause more interference with other stations. BRILLIANT!
Relaxing the AM nighttime community coverage standards, which will also provide broadcasters, who may have difficulty finding suitable sites, relief for towers and directional arrays.
Remember what I said about the AM signal traveling farther at night? More AM band interference and more difficulty for the consumer to receive and hear programming. BRILLIANT!
Also, does the FCC really think a non-viable AM station will be moving its tower site? 700WLW’s tower site is 40 acres. Two towers, one almost 900 feet tall. What do you think this would cost to build? This is a non-starter.
Eliminating the AM “ratchet rule,” which requires an AM station to “ratchet back” its nighttime signal to reduce interference to certain other AM stations.
Here’s where I worry about the FCC and attendees at the recent NAB/RAB “circle jerk.” Really? You applauded this idea? They are saying they are in favor of increasing interference on the AM band and making it more difficult for listeners to listen to stations. WOW!
Permitting wider implementation of Modulation Dependent Carrier Level or MDCL control technologies, which allow broadcasters to reduce power consumption.
I know. What the f*** does this mean? Basically, by controlling the algorithms of modulation with the main carrier and the side-bands of the signal the station can reduce its electric bill. But, as with every immutable law in physics there is give and take. (1) By reducing the power and use of electricity needed, it makes the signal weaker and creates more interference on the listener’s end. (2) The FCC has noted that a reduction in signal power at certain modulation levels “inevitably exacts some penalty in audio quality.” This means if an AM station uses the MDCL control technology audio distortion is created on the signal. You guessed it. More interference.
Modifying AM antenna efficiency standards by reducing minimum effective field strength values by approximately 25%, thus allowing the use of shorter towers.
“Reducing minimum effective field strength values” means a weaker signal. 700WLW’s main tower is what is called a “half-wave tower.” That’s why it’s so big. Stations that have shorter towers have what are called “quarter-wave towers.” A half-wave tower creates a better and stronger signal. The shorter towers proposed mean? Yep. More interference.
Hey FCC. The answer is not MORE interference. The answer is LESS interference. And you do that by turning off non-viable stations. And before station owners start crying poverty, many of these non-viable AM stations have one thing that is worth a ton of money. The land their towers sit on.
What do you think those 40 acres in Mason, Ohio are worth?
Darryl doesn’t have to worry about his man card. They can take his job, but not his uber manhood! He can get another job with all his talent, but manhood can’t be earned back once lost. The blog posting was captured and posted with derogatory comments about Darryl by Fred Jacobs, CLICK THE LINKS ABOVE AND BELOW. Jacobs was one of the speakers at the “circle jerk.” It seems he didn’t like Darryl’s opinion of his performance. Click here to review. It took a month for the “circle jerks” to read the blog posting and figure out what it meant. Just like they don’t understand that more quarter-wave towers mean a message gets to fewer people because of the cluttered noise–yet that is just what the FCC intended all along because conservative political values are primarily communicated over AM radio, specifically large half-wave towers like 700 WLW. Bravo Darryl Parks, for voicing your opinion against the FCC. Fred Jacobs lost his man card a long time ago.
When Obama lies openly to the public then gets caught, the lawyer in him knows that deniability of responsibility will keep him out of direct trouble. If he can withstand the storm of scrutiny long enough, people will eventually forget what he did, and things will resume to normal. That strategy is the way of all progressive politicians, and it is a method that has evolved out of Saul Alinsky. So it is no coincidence that large government schools like Lakota use the same methods to hide their wasteful spending, their sex scandals, and overall inefficiencies–they like Obama are a progressive institution committed to change in America. For the proof look at who Lakota has employed for third-party advice, such as Jeffery Stec who led the Community Conversations campaign, and most recently the Sun Associates plan which is essentially a progressive think tank from Massachusetts. Lakota has traditionally attacked those who try to bring light to their wrongs, and desired to simply outlast scrutiny, which is the path they took to arrive at the 2013 school levy in November. They ignored the facts, ignored their controversies, and tried to outspend their opposition with sheer force to arrive at a moment in time where they could try to paint a picture to the community why they should raise taxes in spite of declining enrollment in the face of a 2014 labor contract.
As before No Lakota Levy has risen to face the impending doom of tax increases with an aggressive campaign against the government school, and as before the For Lakota people have sought to destroy the message hoping that nobody hears it. No Lakota Levy has put out hundreds of signs at great expense, and nearly as quickly as the signs went into the ground, they were either stolen or destroyed by levy radicals hoping that nobody sees the message. CLICK HERE FOR A REVIEW OF THE LAST CAMPAIGN.
Stealing, vandalizing, or otherwise attempting to silence their opposition is the only strategy organizations like Lakota, Obama, or any other government entity has because the truth is not their alley. They cannot answer criticisms, because they are functioning from deceit, and for their mechanisms of manipulation to work, they require an electorate that does not ask questions, seek answers, or have any standards to hold them against. That is why during the fourth No Lakota Levy campaign the best that the opposition of For Lakota can do is steal and vandalize campaign literature hoping that enough voters won’t learn the truth. For Lakota to be successful in their levy attempt the need to play the numbers game and hope that voter turnout against them is less—because they cannot answer the questions as to why they need more money. They can only declare that they need it, and what the impact of not having the money is. They never can answer the “why.”
I have posted hundreds and hundreds of stories about Lakota schools, I have debated them on the radio, in public, in newspapers, on television and never have they been able to answer my accusations. CLICK HERE FOR REVIEW. Instead, they have attempted to just ignore the questions and steer attention toward emotional topics, in the same exact way that Obama does. The reason they do this is because they don’t have any answers—they can only hope to stop the questions from being asked—which is why they resort to character assassinations and theft to fulfill their strategic objectives, which are parasitic against the community they reside in. CLICK FOR A REVIEW. They cannot win a straight up election, and they accept this—which is why they do the kind of damage seen in the photo here:
Near that location was a large billboard No Lakota Levy Sign that was completely stolen and the one in the photo was damaged so badly that a quick repair was not possible. The message against No Lakota Levy was simple, if a sign is displayed, it will not only be taken down, but it will be destroyed so it cannot be used again. It is the same basic premise as what Obama pulled when he pushed through Obamacare without telling the public that his proposal was “legally” a tax. Or in telling people they’d get to keep their doctor or insurance if they liked their current plan. Of that he didn’t have any idea what was going on in Benghazi, but he was clearly engaged in the War Room during the killing of Bin Landen. Obama is a progressive liar and he hides his deceit in his abilities as a lawyer to twist the truth. In order to do that he must have a media not willing to look at the hard facts—and so far he’s had his wish—which is why the behavior has escalated into the massive health care costs that are about to slam into the American public. Obama mislead America with Obamacare and Lakota schools has followed the same progressive playbook in their justification of their proposed tax increase which won’t be seen for what it truly is until later—once its too late. Like Obama, Lakota has no way of defending themselves against facts. They can only hope the media stays on their side, and people don’t look too deeply at the real situation—which they seek to hide perpetually. To do that they must steal No Lakota Levy signs so that people won’t go to the website and learn the truth. CHECK IT FOR YOURSELF AT THE LINK BELOW.
That is the reason for the vandalism against No Lakota Levy signs. As an institution, Lakota schools do not stand for goodness, for children, or education. The school stands for lies, more lies, manipulation, deceit and a progressive utopia. They are a vile government institution hell-bent on the progressive education of today’s youth, and the wealth redistribution of the rich given to the poor. Three years ago I approached these election issues with a more contemporary approach, but since then, I have gotten to know the participants and this is my conclusion of their behavior—based on their actions. They are no different philosophically than Obama, and are a detriment to themselves and everyone they come into contact with. They are a corrosive force that has only their own selfish agenda at heart and they are truly up to no good. Like Obama, they chose to lie to even themselves about what they stand for, and wish to believe that higher taxes, more centrally controlled education and the theft of community wealth are good. To maintain the illusion to themselves and the voters, they steal the No Lakota Levy signs. They do not care that thousands of dollars of theft have occurred under their encouragement, because they think they are on a moral crusade for the health of the children, which they have used for their own benefit of tax increases to fulfill the same progressive America that is behind Obamacare.
And the only way to stop them is with the bold vote of NO. Be sure to vote on Tuesday, November 5th because Lakota hopes that the “NO” voters will stay home this time, and that Lakota can rally just enough radicals to vote YES on their behalf. By removing the No Lakota Levy signs, they can take away the fuel propelling the NO vote to the polls on Election Day. But more than that, they hope to remove the question from the public as to why they are in need of money to begin with, and for that, they don’t even want to know the answer—so they remove the reference hoping that nobody will ask.
So far, the media has played along just like they did with Obamacare.
To see the latest lie from Lakota, CLICK HERE. Unless Lakota can produce a student they have caught planting this note, I believe that a radical Lakota employee planted the letter in order to gain support for the levy. More on this tomorrow? Handwriting analysis by the sheriff’s department should provide a quick lead. If not, then the answer is not desired. I will give Lakota 24 hours to come up with a name of the perpetrator, otherwise, I will paint the picture of the situation based on the observable conditions. Knowing how low many of the characters supporting the school levy will stoop, this wouldn’t be the first lie they’ve attempted, only the latest!
Over the weekend Lakota staff, school board members, and the coerced use of many dozens of children confiscated one of the buildings that tax payers own to hold a rally for the upcoming levy vote. Of course the event received excellent media coverage as local press depends heavily on sports programs and charity stories coming out of public education for content. However, they always ignore the faults of such institutions, which was clear in the Channel 9 coverage shown below. For the online edition, the coverage was pretty even, but for the video footage the slant was definitely in favor of the pro levy factions, ignoring many of the fallacies which have caused the desire for levy approval.
One such story that has been ignored during the entire levy campaign by virtually everyone is the notion that Lakota gave $20,000 to McKibben Demographics http://www.mckibbendemographics.com/aboutus.html to provide a detailed enrollment report as recently as February of 2013. It is a very detailed report full of the kind of information that led to the video I produced called A Whip Trick To Save Lakota. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. The McKibben Report showed that Lakota was about to experience severe declines in enrollment leading to massive layoffs at the public school, which was information they did not want to hear—so they ignored it.
Last fall (Oct, 2012) Lakota spent $19,800 to Sun Associates http://www.sun-associates.com/staff.html to provide them the plan they are using as a basis for Lakota’s technology expansion behind the levy campaign. The Sun Associates plan has a lot of commentary based on surveys taken from parents, teachers, and students. A lot of the report is academic nonsense that is meant to be viewed with progressive/Democratic eyes. Sun Associates are a Massachusetts group in the heart of progressive territory—New England. Other than Lakota (which they cite on their web page) all the rest of their studies have been in Massachusetts and New York—hardly bastions of conservativism—not in the way that Butler County is. Essentially, Lakota spent almost $40K to get outside advice, and one of those sources is a progressive “Think Tank” not reflective of the values in Butler County or the residents of Lakota. The school chose to believe what they wanted to justify the levy attempt, and the media has given them a free pass choosing to do soft stories about the impact of the lack of money, and not asking the crucial question as to why. The school recklessly spent money yet again to get two reports done, but only picked one that they could use to justify a tax increase.
This isn’t new information, and only gets reported on blog sites like this one. It is one more example of all the reasons more funding should be denied to Lakota. Tax increases produce money that does not go children, it gets wasted on reports like the one from Sun Associates to use as clubs against a community that doesn’t have the same values, or standards as the region the report was conducted. The cost of those two reports is roughly the entry salary of a typical teacher at Lakota (under 5 years) and if Lakota was so worried about their employees……….or the children, they would have saved the money for the report to contribute to their payroll needs. But they didn’t. Instead, they held a rally at tax payer expense—because it was our building, and sent out press releases of a feel good story to the local press, which returned the favor and covered it as all parties ignored the root of the problem, reckless spending on stupid things like the Sun Associations report.
The crowd in the Channel 9 report was less than in years past, but it still indicates that there will be a number of really stupid people who will vote for the Lakota levy. They are stupid because the school is wasting money on progressive causes that work against conservative educations and those voters are willing to trade away the values, beliefs, and futures of their children just so the parents aren’t inconvenienced with having to drive their children to school. By voting YES they are giving Lakota a free pass to continued wasteful spending, to openly deceive the public, and perpetuate a broken management system driven by unionized collective bargaining agreements—and that is just stupid.
This story is too complicated for most 3 minute news stories or 250 word newspaper articles—so they don’t cover all those hard aspects which are at the heart of the levy vote in November. Instead it is easier to just do a story on how parents want their busing back, and that by voting in favor of more wasteful spending, somehow the children will benefit. The hard story is that the children will benefit because they will no longer be used as extortion mechanisms of coercion against a cash-strapped public. For those stories, I will continue to cover them here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom, because apparently nobody else will.
The responsible thing to do at Lakota is to vote NO on the Lakota levy, because anything else is simply stupid, irresponsible, and equivalent to throwing good money into a black hole from which it will never return. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.
Over this past week, there were a couple of public debates allowing the current West Chester trustees Catherine Stoker and Lee Wong to defend their records against the challengers Mark Welch and Matt King. I support Mark and Matt and you dear reader will too after watching the video shown below. Clearly Mark and Matt are much more competent as potential trustees. Just listen to them. There really isn’t any question.
Listening and watching Wong and Stoker defending their records, Stoker came across as a career, 20 year politician. Her comments were political, polished, and non-committal, the way long time politicians always are. Wong on the other hand declared that the reason he should be trustee again was because “people like bike paths, they like to talk to one another, and he rides his bicycle all over West Chester.” Serious! He must have said it 7 times during the debate. The most telling aspects of the debate are the things that Stoker and Wong took credit for and the things they said were out of their control. A couple of those things were: “zoning regulations were voted on by citizens.” We are not supposed to blame the trustees who had final approval of these regulations, because it was the will of the people. “The land use plan was put together by a citizens committee.” In other words, voters cannot blame trustees who had final approval of the plan, because a citizen committee of ass kissing Agenda 21 loving statists created it under their subtle nudges. “Zoning review committee is manned by citizens.”—whom Trustees appointed and Trustees will have final approval of their work. “The citizens voted for the aggregation program(s)”—(so trustees who voted for approval are off the hook). See how it works? Listen carefully to the way the current trustees try to shrug off any responsibility for anything that might be unpleasant.
Stoker blamed the withholding of legal expenses from inclusion in the trustee agenda on staff not being able to pay a vendor, a vendor billing at the current rate of $290 per hour that could not be contacted for longer terms, a vendor whose billings were included in over half a million dollars of legal expenses to the township during 2012? In defending the Wong and Stoker exclusion of Fiscal Officer from executive sessions, Stoker cast doubt on the integrity of the Fiscal Officer without cause. But yet, as trustees, Wong and Stoker claim all the credit for the successful operations of the township and the growth of commerce and industry. No credit to the developers, investors, merchants, donors, etc.—the visionaries who really made it work—or the staff and employees of the township who helped enable it. Bet you didn’t know that video was so exciting did you? Watch it again with “educated eyes.”
If this debate doesn’t clear things up about who the people are behind the campaign signs, then it needs to be watched until it does—because the differences are incredibly obvious. The decision is basically does West Chester want a couple of long-term career politicians who have little idea how to run the community, or do they want a couple of highly competent businessmen who have more than two cents to apply to the various problems of community management.
For me it is easy to decide. I wouldn’t vote for Wong because he’s certainly not competent. He is a nice enough guy, but there is more to running a community’s finances than riding a bicycle around West Chester. And with Stoker, she is too politically savy to actually do the will of the people. She is a typical politician, and that alone makes her unqualified. The only real answer is Welch and King. Those two guys represent opportunity. The other two represent stagnation, complacency, and a slide backwards toward the business cycle of so many Cincinnati communities that have had their day in the sun, then fallen to decline due to corrosive politicians.
There is 100% without any doubt what-so-ever that communism infiltrated American public schools for most of the 20th Century, making an extraordinary push in the 60s and 70s. Once The Department of Education was formed in 1979 it was already too late, but even still it was reported that even under the Reagan White House, a communist plot was being hatched to teach communism to American students. The reports crossed President Reagan’s desk—so he knew about it. CLICK HERE FOR PROOF. At the start of his presidency Reagan vowed to put an end to Jimmy Carter’s Department of Education, but never gained the political clout to do so. After the assassination attempt on Reagan and his massive tax cuts to get the economy started again, he had gambled all his political capital at the time, leaving The Department of Education to become further entrenched. He was at the time at war with Russia and communism was the declared enemy as it was the cause of the Vietnam conflict, the near tragedy in Cuba, countless insurgents in Central America and of course the space race with Russia. The hatred for communism is what advanced NASA into formation and put man on the moon as a declaration of capitalism. So Reagan surely wasn’t surprised by the reports that crossed his desk announcing open communism was the aim of American schools organized under the department of education. This brings us to the latest and one of the most devastating of the 45 Planks of Communism from the 1958 book The Naked Communist, which is being covered here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom plank by plank. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW ALL 45 OF THEM. #17 is probably the most dangerous plank of them all—and one that is most obvious today.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Be sure to watch the videos on this site as supplemental material to this text from top to bottom, it tells a story. It is very important. I have the very unique position of growing up during a time when all this was happening, coupled with an unusually clear photographic memory extending back to age two. I can still remember smells, facial expressions, sentence construction, etc., of events from my first couple years of grade school even with the logic filters turned on that comes with age. Without knowing what communism was, I determined as far back as the first grade that the entire system was wrong and that it should be rejected. My teachers in grades kindergarten, first grade, second grade and third grade all had conferences with my mother trying to put pressure on me to conform to classroom politics, which I simply refused, instinctively. I didn’t know why, only that I should. I was paddled, given detentions, grounded, isolated and pulled in every direction imaginable, but I never yielded not even an ounce—and I am very, very proud of that fact today. The year I was in the second grade it was the bicentennial year of 1976 and our teachers allowed all the students to celebrate by dressing up as Revolutionary War heroes, as The Department of Education had not yet been created which would eventually aim to put an end to such patriotic endeavors. Our second grade teacher took us to the little school-house on Princeton Road, the old single classroom building Hughes which was being restored at the time to study up on the Declaration of Independence and American Constitution. I remember thinking then that the formation of public schools was wrong in the methods they were using to teach. But I didn’t question it too much as I was watching Little House on the Prairie during Monday evenings with my mother and saw the schools in America had pretty much always been the same way, top down collectivism that was strictly contingent upon the quality of the teacher. If the teacher was a bad one, the entire class would suffer. On the rare times that the teacher was exceptional, a small percentage of the children in the class might find something unlocked within them and become better. They entire system seemed inefficient and wrong to me.
To understand why communists wanted to exploit the weakness of the American public education system which I identified in the 2nd grade, one needs to understand the way the male mind sometimes uses sex as a weapon. The KGB in Russia was undoubtedly shaped by the male mind, so such phallic comparisons are appropriate once you get down to the discussion of psychological motives. Communists wanted to destroy capitalism, and they wanted to erode away American value from the inside out. If there was any doubt of this read the book by Ayn Rand called We The Living, which I will come back to, describes how the U.S.S.R was forced to think, and lays the groundwork for KGB infiltration into America forming The Department of Education, domination over the teaching unions, and molding a new generation of administrators through the university system. The entire complex ordeal can be understood through the motives of sex.
The #1 reason a man wishes to sleep with his best friend’s wife, or the reason a man might be hired, or otherwise coerced to seduce the wife of a rival is so that the value of the love the man shares with his wife will be weakened—hopefully weakening the man—(the husband). When one man sleeps with another man’s claim on a bed partner, he displays power over the man who made the commitment. When the husband learns about the penetration of his sacred love nest by another man’s phallic presence, that woman will become tainted to him—likely forever. The love union between the husband and wife will become forever weakened and any products of that marriage will began to erode away. The process doesn’t happen quickly, but over time, often taking many years. The only defense the husband has is if he is aware of the nature of the attack and can find a way to deal with it. This is the nature of nearly all the fantasies that are carried out all too often when men seduce the bed partners of their rivals, and this includes rivals within the family, brothers, sisters, step parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. The act of sex in these cases is similar to the ancient belief that in cannibalism, if the heart of an enemy was eaten, then some of the power of that enemy would transfer over to the attacker and he’d become more powerful. Modern men, if they wish to diminish other men, attempt to do so through the women those men love, and if successful, can crush the rival directly and indirectly.
The KGB wished to taint the American education system in the same way that one man wishes to sleep with a rival’s wife. Using communism to infiltrate the ideals taught to the next generation of children it would plant the seeds of discontent in the mind of the participants. The same way a woman who has been seduced by another man, her husband’s rival might find herself beginning to question the power, intelligence, and potency of her husband after allowing herself to open up to another man, the unarmed young American student once invoked with communism will forever question the merits of capitalism.
From the fifth, through the tenth grade I found myself perplexed by the term “Let’s Party” which was so incredibly popular in public school, as almost every kid I knew used the term. For reasons I couldn’t put my finger on at the time, I avoided such terms because they seemed contrived—foreign, and I wanted nothing to do with them. I certainly would not have guessed that the American enemy at the time, Russia had originated the term. After all I was at the opening night of Rocky IV and it was all about the capitalism of Rocky fighting the mechanical nature of communism in the boxing ring. At the movie theater seemingly my entire school had shown up, the theater was one of the really big ones at Showcase Cinemas, and it was packed. My date was a highly sought after young woman a few years older than me who was dating a Bengal player and was the next door neighbor to one of my best friends—and male rivals. I knew exactly what I was doing by taking her on a date to see Rocky IV. The Bengal player got over it but my friend never did. During the Rocky movie, communism was defined as the villain. It was clear, but all the kids I grew up with missed the real villain. Nearly all of them after the movie concluded declared one place or another as the destination for their term, “Let’s Party,” which is what they did. They gathered in groups of eight or more became increasingly intoxicated—non thinking, loose sexually, and displayed their vulnerabilities to each other openly. I of course avoided those kinds of entanglements and took my date elsewhere. But the entire evening I kept hearing the term “Let’s Party” and found myself disheveled by the phrase for reasons that were purely instinctual.
“Let’s Party” was a term used in Ayn Rand’s We The Living when members of the communist party youth movement would use social gatherings to meld themselves together through collective embarrassment. The purpose of these “Parties” was to defame sacred beliefs, deflower young women, and lower the expectations of young men, so that everyone would view everyone else as equal to one another. The term, “Let’s Party” 60 years later was floating around my classrooms and coming from the mouths of young Lakota students on a regular bases—but how, and why. Now thirty years later, the term “Let’s Party” is universally understood, and accepted. Everyone seems to know what it means when perfect strangers utter it. My rhetorical response has always been of sarcasm when someone asks me to perform the task. I would say—“what are we celebrating.” That of course always draws blank stares as they do not know what to say next—because the phrase was not created as a thinking mechanism but as a non-thinking activity. If the term does not conger up drunkenness, sexual misconduct, weakness, and other primal human desires, then the aim is mysteriously vacant from the minds of man—because most people let others do their thinking for them—which is how the KGB infiltrated American schools politically through the front door and right under President Reagan’s nose. The KGB knew that Reagan was a very good communicator and that in the short run, he would bring down communism in Russia by crushing them economically. But the KGB had another plan, if they couldn’t beat capitalism directly, then they’d undermine it the same way a man seduces a woman to get into the head of a rival. The scouting report on Reagan was that he wasn’t very good with the details, so they struck at his weakness, using the newly created Department of Education to bring communism directly into The United States. The KGB seduced American education, planted deep seeds of doubt, discontent, and phallic presence, and let the slow destruction begin. CLICK HERE FOR PROOF.
There is no hesitation on my part in declaring that Communist Plank #17 has been fully implemented, and it goes unsaid the same way a couple avoids discussing their sexual mistakes of the past, or lovers that they had shared a bed with outside of their relationship. Communism has tainted our education system deliberately and the shame of it keeps everyone from talking about it. So much time has passed that teachers of Common Core, Race to the Top, and virtually every curriculum in The United States find themselves preaching soft communism, or open socialism to American children thinking that they are teaching “American” ideals. But they’re not. They are teaching communism disguised with seductive terminology such as “social justice,” “fairness,” “equality,” and other communist expressions decorated under the flag of Democratic politics, supported by a progressive label. I know it’s true because I personally watched it happen step by step and had the unique aptitude to chronicle it from a very young age and never become seduced by it. This has allowed me to name the villain because shame does not keep it off my tongue.
I wasn’t sure how serious the situation truly was regarding communism being taught in public schools until I read We The Living. Before that book I was searching for answers and everything came back insufficient to explain the problems I was observing. But after We The Living, I realized that what the communists of the 20th Century had performed was a global infiltration of the philosophy of Karl Marx and put it into the minds of nearly every student using stolen tax money to commit the crime. The situation is actually much worse than I thought; it is a thing of nightmares. Communism in public education is not a conspiracy, it is a fact. The evidence is clear and it puts every child taught under that system in danger. When I spoke about the Rocky movie of my youth, it is true that most of those partiers went on to live somewhat normal lives, raise families, maintain jobs, and own property becoming good American citizens—at least compared to other people on planet earth. But I can declare that the theater at the time in the old Showcase Cinema had well over 300 people in it on that night and of all those including my date, maybe only one or two have lived fruitful lives into their 40s and 50s without massive amounts of destruction brought upon them because of their acceptance of social collectivism. Most of their high blood pressure medicine, their need for Viagra, and the many failures they stare at in the mirror every morning can be traced back to their teenage years and their utterance of the term, “Let’s Party,” which was given to them by 1926 Petrograd, the communist export of the newly formed U.S.S.R. And the kids of today are much, much, much worse off.
Just asking your children dear reader what they learned in school today, and you will see the aims of communism coming out in their report. Forget the modern names given, study the content, and you will see the truth. Think of the wolf in sheep’s clothing. The disguise is meant to deceive, and communists have performed such a deception hiding behind the term, progressive.
To prove that America has long been infiltrated with communism as stated in the 1958 book The Naked Communist I am covering each of the 45 Planks of Communism cited there to provide the proof. CLICK HERE TO READ THE LATEST INSTALLMENT. When it is understood to what extent communism has been quietly placed into our culture during a very delicate time in American history, it can then be understood what is happening to the world in the modern age. So let us explore the meaning of Plank # 16 shown below.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
Over the last 30 years American society has been under siege mysteriously by a rash of court cases driven by money grabbing lawyers hungry to charge $300-$500 per hour to their clients. The lawyers learned their tactics during their law degrees by professors already trained in the ways of communism—only under different names. Any doctrine that embraces collectivism over individuality has its roots in communist propaganda planted generations before even the law professors received their educations, so the concepts of communism were taught without naming the name allowing entire generations of young lawyers to advance communism thought thinking they were actually fighting for civil liberties. This has resulted in court cases removing the Ten Commandments from public places, allowed defiling art to attack symbols of American heritage, and created many millions of pages of case-law in civil rights litigation that have shaped our society to such a radical position that children are presently suspended from school just for making the shape of a gun with their hands. The meaning behind such measures is fear from law suits leaving public schools to over-react from fear of parasitic lawyers that might bring lawsuits should a school shooting erupt. The communist intention of the law to begin with was to attack the concept of the Second Amendment so that children would grow up in a world not accepting the use of personal firearms. The school was not devious in suspending the students for pretending to shoot other students in normal games of “cops and robbers” they were simply protecting themselves from the potential of future lawsuits. But it was lawyers who created the case-law which provoked such a fear in the first place and the roots of that desire came from Communist Plank #16.
To prove the validity of the claim made by the book The Naked Communist one only need to look at the ability of the organization known as NAMBLA to rise to prominence and use the American courts through the ACLU. NAMBLA is openly wrong, and unquestionably evil, yet it is advanced and defended publically as a way to attack the First Amendment by pretending to defend it. NAMBLA is a byproduct of the International Lesbian and Gay Association which is supported by The United Nations and is protected by politicians like Hillary Clinton. Working together, these organizations have openly attacked American tradition by seeking to twist The Bill of Rights legally to invoke public hatred for those same Rights. This was the intention of communist infiltration of the legal system specifically targeting civil rights.
The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is a pedophile and pederasty advocacy organization in the United States that works to abolish age of consent laws criminalizing adult sexual involvement with minors, and for the release of all men who have been jailed for sexual contacts with minors that did not involve coercion. Some reports state that the group no longer has regular national meetings, and that as of the late 1990s, to avoid local police infiltration, the organization discouraged the formation of local chapters. Around 1995, an undercover detective discovered that there were 1,100 people on the rolls. As of 2005, a newspaper report stated that NAMBLA was based in New York and San Francisco.
In 1993, the International Lesbian and Gay Association achieved United Nations consultative status. NAMBLA’s membership in ILGA drew heavy criticism and caused the suspension of ILGA. Many gay organizations called for the ILGA to dissolve ties with NAMBLA. Republican Senator Jesse Helms proposed a bill to withhold $119 million in UN contributions until U.S. President Bill Clinton could certify that “no UN agency grants any official status, accreditation, or recognition to any organization which promotes, condones, or seeks the legalization of pedophilia, that is, the sexual abuse of children”. The bill was unanimously approved by Congress and signed into law by Clinton in April 1994.
IN 1994, ILGA expelled NAMBLA and two other groups (MARTIJN and Project Truth) because they were judged to be “groups whose predominant aim is to support or promote pedophilia.” Although ILGA removed NAMBLA, the UN reversed its decision to grant ILGA special consultative status. Repeated attempts by ILGA to reacquire special status with the UN were eventually successful in 2006.
Gregory King of the Human Rights Campaign later said that “NAMBLA is not a gay organization … They are not part of our community and we thoroughly reject their efforts to insinuate that pedophilia is an issue related to gay and lesbian civil rights.” NAMBLA responded by claiming that “man/boy love is by definition homosexual,” that “man/boy lovers are part of the gay movement and central to gay history and culture,” and that “homosexuals denying that it is ‘not gay’ to be attracted to adolescent boys are just as ludicrous as heterosexuals saying it’s ‘not heterosexual’ to be attracted to adolescent girls.”
In 2000, a Boston couple, Robert and Barbara Curley, sued NAMBLA for the wrongful death of their son. According to the plaintiffs, Charles Jaynes and Salvatore Sicari, who were convicted of murdering the Curleys’ son Jeffrey, “stalked … tortured, murdered and mutilated [his] body on or about October 1, 1997. Upon information and belief immediately prior to said acts Charles Jaynes accessed NAMBLA’s website at the Boston Public Library.” The lawsuit further alleged that “NAMBLA serves as a conduit for an underground network of pedophiles in the United States who use their NAMBLA association and contacts therein and the Internet to obtain and promote pedophile activity.” Jaynes wrote in his diary, “This was a turning point in discovery of myself…. NAMBLA’s Bulletin helped me to become aware of my own sexuality and acceptance of it [...].”
Citing cases in which NAMBLA members have been convicted of sexual offenses against children, Larry Frisoli, the attorney representing the Curleys, argued that it is a “training ground” for adults who wish to seduce children, in which men exchange strategies on how to find and groom child sex partners. Frisoli also claimed that NAMBLA has sold at its website what he called “The Rape and Escape Manual” that detailed how to avoid being caught and prosecuted. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) stepped in to defend NAMBLA as a free speech matter and won a dismissal based on the fact that NAMBLA is organized as an unincorporated association, not a corporation. John Reinstein, the director of the ACLU Massachusetts, said that although NAMBLA “may extol conduct which is currently illegal”, there was nothing on its website that “advocated or incited the commission of any illegal acts, including murder or rape”.
The Curleys continued the suit as a wrongful death action against individual NAMBLA members, some of whom were active in the group’s leadership. The targets of the wrongful death suits included David Thorstad, a co-founder of NAMBLA. The Curleys alleged that Jaynes and Sicari, who were convicted of the rape and murder of their son, were members. The lawsuit was dropped in April 2008 after a judge ruled that a key witness was not competent to testify.
As a result of the existence of NAMBLA which started in 1978 there are countless rapists, pedophiles, and sexual deviants that have been allowed to openly express themselves which directly attacks the moral aptitude of America. Communists knew that if the American people could no longer differentiate between right and wrong they would lose their way and fall to the collectivism of communism by default seeking safety in numbers. The attack against American civil liberties through the mask of defense was to frighten, outrage, and move patriotic sentiment away from The Constitution, and toward social collectivism opening the psychological door to communism.
In this way lawyers have been used to destroy the American family through easy divorce legislation, cases where schools can infringe upon family through inference, and children are not even allowed to make certain shapes with their hands so to quell the sentiments of the collective society. Individuality has been attacked for the “greater good,” and the cases that paved the way were those centering around NAMBLA—which were so extreme that once accepted, case-law allowed the book of interpretation to be opened widely so that right and wrong behavior were no longer applicable.
This has always been the intention of Communist Plank #16, and the result is all around American society today. It is the cause as to why most people simply shake their head in bewilderment when they hear the latest atrocities on the nightly news and seek collective activities of association to protect their fragile minds from further imposition. The intention of global communists during the 40s and 50s were to bring to the next century in America a nation that had no moral ground to stand upon allowing communism to penetrate the borders of capitalism and destroy it forever. Capitalism is an economic system where the morally good tends to succeed over the bad, so judgments of value must be removed before communism can be accepted by mass society. The intention of Plank #16 was to achieve this eradication of value so that communist driven economies could flourish in the open with no other options of acceptance available and the path to that behavior has been paved through the open attack of value through American civil liberties by organizations like NAMBLA.
I am not a supporter of military engagement in Syria by America. If “they” do so, “they” will do it without my backing. If “my” military must engage in the long mismanaged debacle in Syria, it is due to the incompetence of our own government—driven by progressive politics that does not represent me—but has “progressed” along to do their own thing for global reasons. By saying such a thing I understand that the “establishment” will attempt to label people like me as a radical for not supporting our military—but so what. I could care less. To understand why, watch and listen to every video on this article so that you too may come to understand the real intentions, and meaning of the Syrian military engagement and what is really behind it.
Few recently have even contemplated how Syria acquired the supposed “chemical weapons” to begin with, which has set off this whole debate. As to the question as to why America must become involved in Syria the reason is that it is highly likely the weapons came from American CIA involvement to begin with. Here’s why:
As reported in the New York Sun on January 26, 2006:
“‘There are weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands,’ Mr. Sada said. ‘I am confident they were taken over.’”
“Mr. Sada’s comments come just more than a month after Israel’s top general during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Moshe Yaalon, told the Sun that Saddam ‘transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria.’
“Democrats have made the absence of stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq a theme in their criticism of the Bush administration’s decision to go to war in 2003…
“The discovery of the weapons in Syria could alter the American political debate on the Iraq war. And even the accusations that they are there could step up international pressure on the government in Damascus. That government, led by Bashar Assad, is already facing a UN investigation over its alleged role in the assassination of a former prime minister of Lebanon. The Bush administration has criticized Syria for its support of terrorism and its failure to cooperate with the UN investigation.”
In September of 2002, Reid is quoted as saying:
“Saddam Hussein has, in effect, thumbed his nose at the world community, and I think the President is approaching this in the right fashion.”
And then in October of 2002, he said:
“We stopped the fighting [in 1991] on an agreement that Iraq would take steps to assure the world that it would not engage in further aggression and that it would destroy its weapons of mass destruction. It has refused to take those steps. That refusal constitutes a breach of the armistice which renders it void and justifies resumption of the armed conflict.”
And then, finally, in 2008, said:
“Now I believe, myself, that the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense…and you have to make your own decisions about what the President knows…is that this war is lost and that the surge is not accomplishing anything, as is indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday.”
I would also be equally nervous if I were Nancy Pelosi, who in December of 1998,said on her congressional website:
“Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
And who then said in May of 2004:
“I believe that the president’s leadership in the actions taken in Iraq demonstrate an incompetence in terms of knowledge, judgment and experience in making the decisions that would have been necessary to truly accomplish the mission without the deaths to our troops and the cost to our taxpayers…”
Read more details about this issue at the link below.
But how did the weapons get to Iraq? Well, many have long forgotten that Saddam Hussein was put in place by American desire to send Iraq into war with Iran, and the weapons likely were given to him by America, directly or indirectly, to off-set the Iranians during the Iran, Iraq war. From 1980 to 1988 Donald Rumsfeld could be seen shaking hands with Saddam Hussein openly showing support for Iraq.
Tensions between Iran and Iraq were fueled by Iran’s Islamic revolution and its appearance of being a Pan-Islamic force, in contrast to Iraq’s Arab nationalism. Despite Iraq’s goals of regaining the Shatt al-Arab,[note 2] the Iraqi government seemed to initially welcome Iran’s Revolution, which overthrew Iran’s Shah, who was seen as a common enemy. It is difficult to pinpoint when tensions began to build, but there were some cross border skirmishes, including when Iraqi aircraft bombed an Iranian village that anti-Iraqi Kurds allegedly hid in on June 1979.
After this incident, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini called on Iraqis to overthrow the Ba’ath government, and it was received with considerable anger in Baghdad. On 17 July 1979, despite Khomeini’s call, Saddam gave a speech praising the Iranian Revolution and called for an Iraqi-Iranian friendship based on non-interference in each other’s internal affairs. When Khomeini rejected Saddam’s overture by calling for Islamic revolution  in Iraq, Saddam was alarmed. Iran’s new Islamic administration was regarded in Baghdad as an irrational, existential threat to the Ba’ath government, especially because the Ba’ath party, having a secular nature, discriminated and posed a threat to the Shia movement in Iraq, whose clerics were Iran’s allies within Iraq and whom Khomeini saw as oppressed. Some scholars have argued that Iranian-backed attacks and cross-border raids on Iraqi territory compelled Iraq to launch a preemptive invasion.
However, Iraq’s regime was very politically secure, and in little danger of being overthrown by alleged plots of revolution-wracked Iran. According to some sources, Khomeini’s hostility towards Saddam was actually milder than his Arab neighbors hostility towards Saddam. Saddam’s primary interest in war stemmed from his desire to right the supposed “wrong” of the Algiers Agreement, in addition to finally achieving his desire of annexing Khuzestan and becoming the regional superpower. Saddam’s goal was to replace Egypt as the “leader of the Arab world” and to achieve hegemony over the Persian Gulf. He saw Iran’s increased weakness due to revolution, sanctions, and international isolation. Saddam had heavily invested in Iraq’s military since his defeat against Iran in 1975, buying large amounts of weapons from the Soviet Union and France. By 1980, Iraq possessed 200,000 soldiers, 2,000 tanks and 450 aircraft.:1 Watching the powerful Iranian army that frustrated him in 1974–1975 disintegrate, he saw an opportunity to attack, using the threat of Islamic Revolution as a pretext.
Read all about that war at the link below, which also has a nice picture of Rumsfeld and Hussein warmly greeting one another.
It would appear that once the relationship disintegrated between America and Iraq leading to two wars in two subsequent decades, the Iraq’s chemical weapons were stored across the border in Syria so that UN inspectors would not discover them leading up to the war with Iraq during 2003. America knew Iraq had the weapons because they allegedly supplied them, even if they couldn’t find them. That was because Hussein’s buddy Assad was storing them in Syria.
But years later after America had finally removed Hussein from control of Iraq, the modern progressives went to work on Assad. This is how John Kerry as a senator was seen dinning with Assad as their wives gathered to discuss all the fine shopping options in Syria. A photo is going viral (GO AHEAD, CLICK ON THE LINK) showing the Kerrys and the Assads enjoying quite the intimate dinner in 2009.
Kerry was leading a delegation to Syria to discuss peace in the region at the time. According to French news agency AFP, Assad told Kerry during that visit that America needed a “proper understanding” of issues Syria faces.
Kerry has met with Assad on numerous occasions and once lauded Assad in 2011 as being a “very generous” man, according to the Weekly Standard.
“Well, I personally believe that — I mean, this is my belief, okay?” Kerry said. “But President Assad has been very generous with me in terms of the discussions we have had. And when I last went to — the last several trips to Syria — I asked President Assad to do certain things to build the relationship with the United States and sort of show the good faith that
Now that all the progressive manipulation in the Middle East region has come to fruition it is time to cash in on the years of investment and wash everyone’s hands of the evidence. That is the cause of most conflicts between nations, when governments have to clean up their mistakes from the past. War is the great eraser which wipes away the sins of history—the manipulation of progressives in a region designed to advance their agenda.
The current situation in America is that Obama has a trail of scandals behind him and is falling in the polls. The Republicans are terrified of getting stuck in a budget battle in September, so all the statists in the American government need something to avoid the justice seeking their careers. War is the great unifier which often brings together members of all political parties under a common flag. After all, that is the mantra of the Skull and Bones Society. Military action of any kind is an attempt by the current government in America to erase years of mistakes they have made following interests that do not reflect The Constitution. I do not trust the American government to do the right thing, so I certainly don’t trust them to spend lives and limb to erase their errors at a cost I provide with tax money.
I’m all for providing humanitarian aid, but the poor people of Syria are only a small group of people in the grand scheme of the world where millions upon millions of people suffer under governments not advocating capitalism. Military engagements to help rebels who are built by terrorists to help former friends of Saddam Hussein is a no win situation that will not bring about justice, but only serve to allow the current government in America full of statists, progressives, and open socialists to cover the sins of their mismanagement of the Middle East region. So I do not support military engagement in Syria. If the U.N. wants to see justice there, let them use their own troops not supported by America do so, and see how far that goes. I am not open to allowing the United Nations to believe they have authority over Syria by dragging America into a war so that they can take the credit for justice at our expense. Syria is a mistake and will only serve to allow the bad guys to hide just a little while longer, and many of those bad guys, are in the American government. They cannot be trusted to do the right things…………because if they could be, there wouldn’t be chemical weapons in Syria to begin with.
What is the strongest beacon for freedom in the world today? Is it Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, John Stossel, or any other modern commenter, publisher, or financier? I would say not. Is it the multitude of freedom oriented websites like FreedomWorks, or American Thinker? I would say not. Rather, I would say that it’s a new force to the entertainment world. Several years ago the former Fox News star Glenn Beck started his own news organization called The Blaze—which is changing the way the news is delivered. As an online publication that rivals traditional magazines like Time, Life, and People it also specializes in providing the latest scoop on news stories in the way that made the Drudge Report so important to the art of breaking news stories. But it’s not even The Blaze that I’m speaking about—not as a website based news source. In January of 2013 Glenn Beck created The Blaze Radio Network which is an all internet radio station that broadcasts online outside of FCC regulation. Normally these kinds of operations are fly-by-night and built with pure heart, but little money. Well, not anymore. Glenn Beck has invested a considerable amount of his personal fortune into the new Blaze Radio Network and brought in top talent like Doc Thompson and his partner Skip to provide 24 hour a day seven days a week news and entertainment radio that is unparalleled anywhere.
I was very disheartened to learn that my friend Doc Thompson was leaving Cincinnati. I have been a talk radio fan all my life. I used to lie in bed as a kid and listen to radio broadcasts from 700 WLW and WMOH till the pre-dawn hours while the rest of the world slept, literally and figuratively. During my working years, I would listen to talk radio through long hours of 2nd and 3rd shift hard labor. As I grew older and had started participating in talk radio actively I enjoyed being more than just a listener, especially on Doc Thompson’s Cincinnati show. I respect the art of being a talk show host. But Doc was a bit too freedom oriented for the sports talk stations of Cincinnati, and was too big of a name to put on a station that didn’t have a voice equaling his own booming enunciations. So it didn’t take long before Doc moved on to the Detroit market leaving a void in Cincinnati, and the freedom movement that was so strong here.
There are other voices, but on FCC controlled radio stations, they are somewhat handcuffed by their station managers, and the advertisers who essentially control the content. Doc has been a breath of fresh air wherever he has worked, but the stations he worked for never allowed him to utilize his full potential of talent consisting of humor, deep political analysis, and a tremendous range of topics that he can discuss. But more than anything, Doc is the opposite of the kind of radio host that Howard Stern has been—he has deep convictions and tries to be a good person. He wants to do good with his microphone, and that has hindered him during his long career………..until now. Glenn Beck hired Doc Thompson in January to start off his new Blaze Radio Network with the 6 AM to 9 AM morning show just ahead of Glenn Beck’s national show and the gloves have come off. For the benefit of my readers here I have placed two of Doc’s recent shows on the following video clips so that they can be listened to on demand in their entirety. I would suggest playing them and filling your day with their contents. There is a lot of comedy, loads of great information, and some deep sincerity from Doc and Skip which is typical of them in what I consider to be one of the best radio show in the history of talk radio that was only made possible because of Glenn Beck’s innovative, and bold investment in the enterprise.
The reason I consider The Blaze Radio Network to be the purest beacon available for the freedom movement is because it is free, and it is not under the regulation of the government in any way. This allows the programming on the Blaze Radio to be unusually unconcerned with regulators who can threaten to pull their license if at least a balanced approach to statist concepts isn’t adhered to. Every television, and radio station in America is typically concerned about these federal regulations, and it does water down the content, even on programs like Rush Limbaugh’s.
Doc and Skip are for the first times in their life completely free as talk show hosts, and they are making excellent use of that liberty. Before any organization can hope to be a beacon of freedom to the listeners they service, they must in fact be free themselves. Because of the commitment of Glenn Beck into The Blaze Radio Network, it is the most “free thinking” broadcasting anywhere in the world. It functions the way that The Constitution intended with the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights, to use free speech not in a destructive way to boost ratings with sex, and deviant discussion, but with high quality content from people who care deeply about the topics they discuss. And for the first time, radio hosts who work for The Blaze have a boss in Glenn Beck who is just as committed to liberty as they are.
I know Doc Thompson personally. I have been to dinner with him where he and Skip would not stop doing research for their radio show even at 1 AM in the morning. Doc never turns off his engine. He never completely shuts down. Radio work and the matters of current events are his number one passion. He is constantly analyzing material for his shows, and he ruthlessly looks for fresh content. Doc is one of the hardest working people I know, and in entertainment/news, this is certainly the case.
Doc has been fighting for a chance to do what he is currently doing for more than 20 years of radio in cities all over the United States. In one of his darkest days of recent past, he never let up off the gas. I remember vividly when his wife Yuna Lee left her television job in Richmond, Virginia so she could finally marry Thompson after several years of a long distance relationship. Finally they were going to be together, living not only in the same house, but in the same city. Yuna boldly left her job to take a job at Channel 2 in Dayton where she works to this day. But the very moment the two were married, Doc lost his job in Cincinnati. He was always a bit too passionate, too “wholesome,” and too “Tea Party” for the Cincinnati stations, which left him jobless again looking for a home. Even in those moments when he was most tempted to change his style to fit the producers of radio shows, he didn’t. He held tight for a syndication deal because he knew he was that good and he needed someone to believe in him with financial backing.
Glenn Beck was that guy, and the benefit to freedom is that finally Doc Thompson has NOTHING in his way to be a serious pain in the ass to statists, progressives, communists, union thugs, race baiters, education empires, and every parasitic entity hanging from the halls of government. For the first time in his professional life Doc Thompson is free to provide the kind of radio that hasn’t been conceived since the very early days of radio broadcasting before the FCC put its claws into the lives of every radio listener. Doc takes full advantage of this freedom, as evidence in the over 5 hours of broadcasting played above. I hope you took full advantage of those clips to let Doc’s voice bring the sounds of freedom to your ears. The Blaze Radio Network it has nearly replaced all my old news sources. I play it all the time, at home, in the garage, in my back yard, in my car, on my iPod—especially during flights, on vacation, in the middle of the mountains, and in the deepest valleys while camping. Because The Blaze is broadcast across the internet, and podcasting is always available on Soundcloud, every show Doc and Skip do can be listened to on demand. By loading his segments onto my iPod I can attend business engagements pausing his information, then resuming when my time frees up. When riding my motorcycle, I can broadcast Doc into my helmet through my iPod, which is a completely new technology. Years ago the only way to listen to a radio on a motorcycle was to have a bulky device attached to the handle bars. Now I can hear Doc anywhere at anytime of day and the information is free. CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO FIND DOC’S BROADCASTS ON SOUNDCLOUD:
For traditional radio talk show listeners, The Blaze Radio Network has a full staff that broadcasts out of New York the news at the top and bottom of every hour just like most other AM stations. They are doing much better work than Fox News is, and certainly leaps and bounds above CNN, MSNBC, or any other news source. The Blaze guys are on top of just about everything 24 hours a day 7 days a week. They are always there.
For these reasons listed above Doc Thompson on The Blaze Radio Network is the best and most authentic example of a voice for the freedom movement that there is in the world. Doc works harder, plays harder, and has the tools in his tool box given to him by Glenn Beck to be a monstrous success, which he and Skip are well on their way to becoming. What they are doing is the wave of the future, and the most effective form of new media there is. I trust The Blaze in ways that I have never trusted any other news source. Their news is good even when they don’t agree with what the other side has to say. Such as in this example:
The Blaze is a game changer in the news business, and Doc Thompson working for the Blaze Radio Network is a game changer in the world of radio. The radio business will never be the same again, now that Doc Thompson is loose and able to communicate the truth where it lives most brilliantly, at The Blaze operated by Glenn Beck and managed by hundreds of wonderful people who deeply care about the state of America and it’s role to the rest of the world who look with longing eyes toward the freedoms that only we have. I would recommend dear reader that you tune in to this wonderful tool for freedom and support it with your attention which will be mutually beneficial for many years to come.
In front of a seafood restaurant in Delaware flies the flag readers of this website will proudly recognize, pictured on the left. At the base of that flag pole are items the owner of the establishment greatly treasure, pictured on the right. These pictures were posted by a fan of my new novel Tail of the Dragon. The rum is a reference to an article I wrote about pirates a few weeks ago. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. She has let me know that these are some of her current favorite things, and her idea of an exquisite evening is drinking some of that rum while reading Tail of the Dragon from her nightstand so that she can crawl into the mind of the novel’s hero Rick Stevens and enjoy his rebellious charisma from the greatest car chase in the history of car chases. About halfway through the first draft I realized that I wasn’t just going to tell the action packed story of a modern car chase, but the philosophic underpinnings of a society struggling under the pressure of “statism” and a rebellion against it. This article is Part IV of a Making Of series for my recent novel which explores the path I took to arrive at its unique philosophy of freedom. CLICK HERE to review the previous installments. I had clear in my mind the locations I was writing about, and I understood the rebellious nature of the main protagonist, Rick Stevens, but one thing that still lingered in the back of my mind was the notion of freedom versus collectivism and how those two things are so closely associated sometimes within the same context. For me, there is no greater example of this duality than in motorcycle riders who claim to be free and independent, yet tend to travel in gangs riding their motorcycles in formation whenever they gather. This trait was as I saw it a failure of American philosophy so I wanted to become more acquainted. This was the reason I joined the Suzuki Owner’s Club of North America and quickly became the Vice President of the Ohio Chapter. One of the tasks of such a leadership position was to organize new membership drives, so the President and I organized a small ride to promote the organization. The President was from Cleveland and I was from Cincinnati, so we agreed to meet up at a McDonald’s just south of Cleveland and head across the top of Ohio to the Fremont Suzuki dealer south of Sandusky and set up a booth to recruit new members. It was a planned day trip that seemed like a simple endeavor on paper taking place just a few months after my wife and I traveled to Key West, from Part III. The trip ended up being a 500 mile adventure that took us to many places throughout the day and would prove to be a memorable escapade that was more epic, than simple.
We left our home at 4:00 AM to meet the President and some of the other Suzuki Owner members at 7 AM. It was not difficult to cover the vast distance between Cleveland and Cincinnati by motorcycle in such a short time. With an average speed of 77 MPH, and just a few stops, we arrived at the designated McDonald’s ahead of the other riders. I enjoyed my affiliation with the Club, but in the back of my mind was the nagging sensation that I felt constrained by my involvement. I knew I shouldn’t feel this way, yet the closer to Cleveland we became, the more tense I was. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the President or his riding partners, but it was the feeling that the closer I came to Cleveland the more I lost my individual identity. I was honored that they invited me to become the VP of the Club after only a few short months, but VP was still a subordinate role, and I’m not a very good subordinate. Typically if I’m not the leader of the pack, I’m not interested in any endeavor. I just can’t stand taking a passive role on anything in my life, no matter what it is.
We arrived at the McDonald’s, ate a well deserved breakfast, and met up with the President and his riders outside. After some brief introductions and typical motorcycle talk, we planned our route to the Fremont dealership roughly 70 miles away across very rural farmland. There would not be any highway access, so we’d be traveling relatively slowly across God’s country of the Ohio north 40 to 50 miles south of Lake Erie. Once the route was established on a map spread out across motorcycle fuel tanks we were off. The President in such groups usually takes the point position on such rides which is slightly off-center to the left of the road. Riders behind the leader take up positions of formation staggered behind. I migrated to the back so I could observe the behavior and noticed that the other riders worked very hard to maintain the closest position behind the leader possible.
We traveled across the top of Ohio by many farms and several rain storms before arriving at the dealership right around 9:30 AM. We were scheduled to arrive at 10 AM so we were a little early. Once at the Fremont location the President set up a booth for the Club to promote itself. We spent from 10 AM to 2 PM having lunch, telling biker stories, and talking about various wild adventures. The company was good, but all the while I had a terribly uneasy feeling that was difficult to shake. There were three times in my life prior to this bike ride where I had a similar feeling. The first was in the fifth grade when some girls I knew set me up to “go steady” with the class beauty at the time. She was a pretty girl, but I didn’t want the obligation to have to speak to her every night on the phone like boyfriends and girlfriends were required to do. In the fifth grade I had just won the pull-up contest in the Winter Olympics and many people were projecting me to be a star athlete as I was clearly the fastest kid in the entire school. I could shoot basketball, play hockey, and I was untouchable in dodge ball. But I hated all those group sports, even though I was excessively good at them. This drove my gym teacher nuts as he didn’t understand my reservations. Because I was so good at these sports, this little girl wanted to be my girlfriend so her friends arranged it by nagging me until I said yes. I went steady with the girl for about 2 hours. Once I came home from school and was eating dinner and planning the activities of my evening which involved, reading, drawing pictures, playing war with my brother outside, and building a model car, I did not have time for the little girl when she called and wanted to talk on the phone for an hour. I reluctantly told the girl I wanted to break up. She cried, all her friends were mad at me for years, but I was free—and that made me happy. I was free to read my books, draw my pictures, write my stories, and play outside—and that’s all I wanted out of life. I reasoned that the only reason I wanted to go steady with the girl was because I wanted to see her naked—but that wasn’t a good enough reason to imprison my soul to another person. When I broke up with her I was greatly relieved. The second time was when I allowed myself to be talked into trying out for the Lakota soccer team during my freshman year. I had a reputation as “The Animal,” because I was so vicious when I played the game. I would often head butt other players intentionally to take out their star players. I was good at disguising the effort as going for head balls to avoid the yellow cards, so many of my couches and parents who watched me often talked me into trying out for the school team. The first day of tryouts I was miserable. I thought the coach was an arrogant bastard and I couldn’t stand the body language of the guy. He was clearly looking for butt kissers on his team, and that wasn’t me. He didn’t like my aggressive playing style, or my rebellious attitude. I also didn’t like the girls who seemed attracted to the school soccer players, the girls who hung out around the practice field and were always being passed around by the other players. They were short-legged stubby girls with square faces and potato asses, not the kind of girls I was interested in. So I became more and more belligerent as the tryouts went on for two weeks. During a scrimmage I head butted our goalie who had called off the ball because he made fun of my haircut in the locker room. My mother always cut my hair, but she did it in the classic “bowl cut.” So I sent him home with a bloody nose that day and a loose tooth. The coach made me run laps hoping I’d pass out, but I didn’t. I stubbornly completed his assignment, but our relationship deteriorated. I was relieved to learn that I had not made the team. I knew everyone would finally leave me alone about trying out for all the stupid team sports, and I could go back to my books and stories without the constant nagging from the adults in my life who kept telling me to grow up and do something “productive.” A few years later the high school football coach hinted that I should try out for the football team to direct my “aggression” in a positive direction. But I had a reputation in school as a person who fought way too much, and was utterly unmanageable socially so their urgings quickly ebbed once they saw no light in my eyes over their promises of college football lights and easy girls. I had no problem with girls, and the lights didn’t impress me, so they didn’t have much to offer. The third time was when I was 18 and I had a modeling agent who booked me to do a lingerie show with a stage full of beautiful girls. I had just met my wife and had a choice to go see her for the evening or go to the paying gig that my agent had set up. The money was good, and there was a chance to meet not just a few beautiful women, but several. Not the stubby fingered, potato butt girls, but the kind I liked, with long legs, round lips, eyes just perfectly spaced—the kind of girls who strive to become actresses and fashion models. So I took the job and my future wife cried because she was afraid she’d lose me to the job assignment. I found out prior to leaving my apartment that my task at the show was to “dance” around the girls lip-synching to David Lee Roth’s song, California Girls. I was en route to the event, but instead of taking I-75 south, I took I-275 east and went to my future wife’s house. My agent was furious as she had a stage full of beautiful fashion models but no David Lee Roth impersonator to dance on stage around them. The show tanked, and I never worked as a model again. But I did get married to my wife a year later. She drew a line in the sand and told me that she didn’t care about making money if I had to make money doing stupid things like dancing on a stage to David Lee Roth songs. Once I arrived at her house, I felt free of that social pressure to perform to expectations that the media culture valued, but were at odds with my own beliefs.
Now, that nagging feeling was there again in the motorcycle group at Fremont. I was helping to register new members to a group that I was Vice President of, which I became a part of in much the same fashion as in the stories just told. I was a reluctant participant. My talents were desired for various reasons to serve collective institutions, and I have ALWAYS been reluctant to surrender my sovereignty to anybody ever, no matter how beautiful, how lucrative, or under any amount of pressure. I have always turned obligation away in favor of freedom. I often say yes initially because I like to help people, but when things get too cozy in the collectivism department, I always look for a way out.
I pulled my wife to the side and suggested to her that when the event was over at 2 PM that we not ride back to Cleveland with the Suzuki group but instead go up the road to Cedar Point and ride roller coasters the rest of the day, since we were close. She shook her head knowing what was driving me, as after twenty plus years of marriage she had come to understand my decision-making processes. When it was time to take down the tent, I informed the guys that my wife and I were going to Cedar Point, and not riding back in formation to Cleveland. I got some puzzled looks, but they agreed to go on without us. We spoke in a friendly manner as we parted promising to touch base by email when we all returned home. The minute I was back on my motorcycle going north as they traveled east I felt the shackles coming off me and I enjoyed freedom once again. That was the last time I would ever see those guys, and the email messages never came or went either way again. That was my last day as Vice President of the Ohio Chapter Suzuki Owners Club of North America.
My wife and I had fun on the bike trip, but our day really opened up into a wonderful experience once we arrived at Cedar Point about 45 minute later. It was a relief to not have to ride in formation, to recognize a leader of any kind, to adhere to any kind of pecking order, to go where we wanted when we wanted to go, and to have the freedom to make a decision and to act on that decision. We spent the rest of the day at Cedar Point until the closing time of 10 PM that night. Once they closed the doors on us, we got on our motorcycle and headed for home. We arrived back around 3 AM–23 hours and 500 miles later. It was a cold ride home, so we were fairly frozen. We warmed up in our hot tub and I wrote notes on my laptop from the day while they were fresh in my mind as I hung over the side of the Jacuzzi typing madly. The thoughts of that day made it into my opening chapter which went on for nearly thirty pages. My editor had me cut it down to roughly the first 5 pages of the final Tail of the Dragon draft.
Freedom is a difficult concept to understand, especially for those who aren’t nearly as stingy with it as I am. People find themselves agreeing to things they otherwise wouldn’t do because some collective force applies pressure to them to say “yes,” then once they do, they are stuck in rigid confinement. Most people become used to accepting this gradual loss of freedom, so they don’t see the effects of socialism seeking to subtly impose itself upon their lives. I never developed that problem, so it’s easy for me to see. In Tail of the Dragon I had to create in the characters of Rick and Renee Stevens two characters who valued their freedom to such an extraordinary level that they would not yield to those tiny encroachments, so that their refusal would cause the next Civil War in America in an understandable way. I wanted readers to see what freedom was supposed to look like, how it felt, and how tasted, because most people don’t know what freedom is at all—as they are encumbered with too many obligations. Freedom is the essence of what Tail of the Dragon is all about, freedom from clubs, from socialites, from agents, from coaches, from all the pressures of life which desire to steer a human mind in a direction that is not authentic to the individual. My experiment to investigate a collective entity had proved fruitful if it did only last about 2 months. They were two months well spent, because the result found its way into literature for all time, and many years beyond.
And a special thanks are deserved for Kathy. I appreciate her flying that flag in front of her Delaware seafood restaurant, and I appreciate the effort she put into making my day a little better by displaying Tail of the Dragon so proudly. It was for such people I wrote the novel and I am happy to know that Captain Morgan is going on the adventure with her.
George Lang on 700 WLW: Mitt Romney and Kid Rock blast West Chester with an army of freedom fighters!
There is nothing I like more than to hear new people coming out front and speaking on 700 WLW from the land of West Chester defending liberty, and protecting conservatives from the vile ruthlessness of the typical progressive. Over the last couple of months George Lang has been that person, appearing on WLW a couple of times. His latest was an important one as he spoke of the Romney/Ryan visit that he had a very big part in bringing to West Chester as one of the three trustees and the only one who isn’t a typical do-nothing politician. George was on WLW to discuss the actual poll numbers for Butler County in favor of Romney and the direction Ohio would take in the upcoming election. Entertaining, smooth, and articulate, George didn’t forget to mention his support of Sharon Kennedy for Supreme Court which he and I enthusiastically prop up over the incumbent and former social worker Yvette McGee Brown.
The rally that Lang spoke about turned out to be quite dramatic. West Chester—and Butler County more specifically is one of the most intense hot beds for conservatives in the entire country. Critics will look at the crowd who attended and instantly criticize that there was a sea of 30,000 white faces with little diversity among them, or any poor. Those same critics would be part of the problem that is infecting America right now with an emphasis on all the wrong things that make up a successful society. Diversity, fairness, social justice are the policies of the progressive/socialist and the people who attended the Romney event for the most part support all those types of things, but not at the expense of wealth production and the general pursuit of goodness.
I view the typical resident of West Chester as a member of a lost tribe that has had to move away from their city homes in the past to seek refuge in the suburbs to avoid the abysmal taxation that goes on in dense population centers filled with progressive politics. Even in West Chester there are progressives who are currently attempting to turn West Chester into a city so they can collect more taxes to expand government more aggressively with more hyphenated nameplates on the desks of future bureaucrats. They have an unfathomable appetite for more, and more government services built on the backs of irrational emotion. Lucky for West Chester there are not many politicians who embody these traits. Two of the three trustees do, but George Lang by himself off-sets them dramatically. He will need a partner in the next election to win one of those Trustee seats away from the vile progressives that currently out-vote him. And the public school of Lakota has many progressive minded people running it, consisting of the school board, the superintendent and most of the employees which is typical for a government institution. Public school enterprises attract progressive minded people, which is a real problem.
As Kid Rock played “Just the Good Ol’ Boys” opening up for Romney’s appearance on November 2nd 2012 the crowd chanted “FOUR MORE DAYS” repeatedly in a not too disguised battle cry to oust the diabolical, lying, scandalous, manipulative, small-minded, thieving, parasitic, obtuse, puppet progressive President Obama from the seat of much destruction that he has personally ushered in to America on the backs of the “good” and at their expense. West Chester as a community does make more money than other places in the country and Obama’s schemes target them specifically for tax increases to pay for his progressive re-distribution attempts. It is because of many Obama type politicians in the past that most of the people in the large crowd moved to West Chester to begin with, because they want to be away from crime ridden public housing projects, schools filled with parents raising their kids on welfare programs, away from apartment dwellers who can vote property tax increases without actually owning property. So if the crowd is too much of one color, and has more money per capita than the average crowd, it is not the fault of the crowd, but of the progressive politicians who attempted to loot them in the past causing them to take refuge in West Chester.
But like George Lang’s interview on 700 WLW some of the most prominent Republicans in the entire country came to this grand event to partake in a movement that has been a long time and coming. As I watched the participants, Romney and Ryan specifically, on the heels of speeches by Speaker John Boehner, Governor John Kasich, Senator Rob Portman and many, many others I noticed a long—evolving plan that had been many years in the making evolving on stage that was culminating in West Chester.
Way back in 1993 there was a special election for an emergency House of Representatives seat that was coming open that spring and Portman was on 700 WLW fighting for it. He was on-air debating seven other candidates in the studio at Mt. Adams back when the station was located down in Cincinnati, but left to avoid the terribly high taxes—(see a common theme here.) I spoke to the radio host for permission to film the Sunday prime time event for my friends within the Reform Party which was a group that Ross Perot had started. Out of all the candidates Portman was clearly the most qualified and honest and I took an instant liking to him. You could tell upon meeting him for the first time that he was not the typical scum bag politician and that he sincerely cared about becoming a member of the House. I told my friends within the Reform Party that if Washington had more politicians like Rob Portman that America would explode with prosperity and goodness. Portman after the debate actually came to some of our Reform Party events, most notably the one at Longworth Hall where my friend and I hung a giant American flag off the top of the building that extended all the way to the bottom. It was half as big as a football field and it took all our strength to tie off such a large flag without it pulling us off the roof. In 1996 when I was manufacturing t-shirts with the logo, “TAKE AND AX TO OUR TAX” Rob Portman sent me a $7.50 check to buy one, which is what they cost me to make at the time. Over the years Portman had never really buckled as a pinnacle of goodness in the cease-pool of Washington politics, and I always admired him for it.
To see Portman on stage with Romney, Kasich, and Boehner along with all the rest who can all tell similar stories of their own, I saw assembled a great climax that was 20 years in the making. For the first time, Republicans had assembled a group of politicians who could actually push back against the progressive, ever-imposing impositions of parasitic existences, and do it without being equally scummy. The people gathered on stage under the flag of Mitt Romney were generally decent people who had built their lives around good family principles and stood for the values of the people gathered hoping that these men and women could stop those progressives because the planet has become so small that there isn’t anywhere else to run. West Chester is the product of good people running away from parasites—people who insist they must live at the expense of someone else. And for those who don’t wish to get picked apart any longer by such people, they flee, just like WLW did from Mt. Adams to Kenwood, and almost every one of the 30,000 people who showed up in the cold to see Romney and friends speak on a breezy November evening.
For the first time in a number of years I am waking up in the morning after such a rally and I can actually see a light at the end of the tunnel. Under a Romney administration it won’t take much to work with Governor Kasich to get the oil fields in Ohio flowing again, and coal will become a major industry bringing great wealth to Ohio. And I know that technologies like thorium will get a serious look as a future alternative to the dirty fossil fuels. Education will be reformed, because it has to be. And it won’t be the methods of old, which Romney made very clear in his speech, but one that embraces competition between schools to raise the performance and lower their costs to the community, which is what I have personally been fighting to help usher in. Just two years ago School Choice was a dirty word, and teacher unions attacked anybody who criticized them. Now politicians like Romney can give a speech without even caring if it makes the unions angry, because they have been neutralized and seen for what they really are. Their masks have been ripped off, and they will have to adapt to a new way of thinking, and Ohio will play a central role in that change. The best way to avoid the extortions of the past, the strikes, the busing cuts, the sports fees is to give parents the power to pick their child up and move them to another school that isn’t playing that kind of game. I believe that within one year of a Romney/Ryan administration the economy will dramatically improve, because in their case all they have to do is turn on the facet, where Obama and his gangs of thugs have turned it off deliberately to induce wealth redistribution on a global scale.
Listening to George Lang on WLW, then seeing the Romney event for myself, I have the feeling that the angry contentions that I have been a part of for many years may finally be coming to an end. There will always be a need to be vigilant. Even Rob Portman voted for the NDAA Act which is a major concern for me, but like most things, good intentions that are actually quite bad are not so obvious to the people who are up close and personal with such issues. They are only obvious in the long view, which I have made something of a living framing for some of these same people for quite a long time now. But finally, there appears to be a day when we can wake up on the morning and not think about what a scum bag is in The White House, or what kind of looting governor is trying to steal money from the rich and give it to the poor just to get himself re-elected again, or that politicians like progressive trustees would embark on a well-planned smear campaign to lash out at Lang for going on WLW to speak his mind. The momentum is shifting—finally for the better and for the first time since the 1992 election when I sat on the steps of a plush Cincinnati hotel and watched with grimy anger a speech by Bill Clinton that was going to be in The White House, I have the kind of hope that I last felt in 1980 as a young 7th grade student at Lakota who had campaigned openly for Ronald Reagan in my class rooms, giving speeches on how the Soviet Union could be crushed with a military build-up and how Jimmy Carter had screwed up the magic of capitalism. Those same youthful eyes watched on that election in 1980 state by state a national election that was a landslide win for Reagan I have wished for a return to that kind of America—the kind of America that brought hope to the 80’s, made a lot of people rich, and crushed global communism. After watching Mitt Romney and the rest speaking in West Chester, I had the feeling that Mitt Romney was more qualified to go well beyond what Ronald Reagan accomplished and that the reverberations of those actions will propel America in a direction of goodness that hasn’t been seen or felt in well over 100 years.
With all that said, Kid Rock was the perfect musical artist to perform on the cusp of such a moment in a land created out of reaction to the imposing policies of progressives for an offensive that will soon flatten them with their stubborn refusal to see reason through the actions of American goodness that is about to turn from blue states to red states on a massive scale. I’m not saying that everything will be fixed on November 7th 2012 when Romney is the next president. But, it is a step in the right direction. The next steps that meander off into the darkness are ones that will require a whole new way of thinking, but that will come in time, and I’ll help usher it in. But to see where the country has a potential to go in a fight that we have all been involved in for over 20 years is wonderfully exciting, and the “Good O’ Boy’s never sounded so good. This is not the Republican Party of the Lawrence Welk days. These are the days of Clint Eastwood passing the torch onto Kid Rock, Mitt Romney and the rest of us who are sick and tired of progressives who want to ruin our lives by giving our freedoms away to the same idiots who cloaked Europe into 1000 years of darkness. It will not be tolerated and will be met with peaceful elections, and if that doesn’t work, then something else. Hopefully Romney will give us the former, so the latter won’t become needed.
In the games of politics however, I am happy to let George Lang take the high road path of Mitt Romney in the arena of elections. George is very good at it, and it has its place. I on the other hand will be in the dirt with Kid Rock where the blood is spilled because it takes both to win a movement, and is what conservatives have been missing for most of a century. But no longer, and it is good to see both elements finally present at the same conservative rally!
