The Great Copper Kingdom: What is behind the veil of government sponsored history


I was never a fan of public education. When attending, I did alright. I looked at it as a prison sentence, had discipline problems with the teachers, but had more friends than I wanted and often excelled at public speeches and athletics. I never took what they were trying to teach me too seriously. Most of what I learned I did on my own. However I did a lot of exploring as a youth and some things just didn’t match up with what they taught us in 4th grade Ohio History. I generally accepted that the Hopewell and Adena Indians built the mounds at Fort Ancient and the purpose of the earthworks were for burial. End of story. I also generally accepted that in 6 grade history class, the pyramids of Egypt were intended for the burial of Khufu. End of story. But as I moved into high school and took anthropology in my senior year—after I had been reading books on the subject for nearly a decade at that point—I knew something was wrong—somebody wasn’t tell the whole truth, nothing but the truth—so help them. Something was fishy about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the whole Nebuchadnezzar issue. Further, in college I was even more suspicious when my philosophy professor was hell-bent on teaching about Lao-Tze author of Tao Te Ching so to pave the way to incorporating Maoism into Western Culture. No, that didn’t work for me. So my education turned to the famed scholar Joseph Campbell and many late nights at Waffle House reading lots and lots of books for about 10 years looking for a fresh look at the mythologies of the world and the real history of the human race incorrectly documented by impatient scholars trying to satisfy their federal grants with all too convenient papers that supported the Catholic version of European expansion.

The next step for me came in reading the Allen Eckert books starting with The Frontiersman. I had lived in the Cincinnati area all of my life and I was learning things in those books that simply shocked me—which should have been covered in the 4th grade way back in Ohio History. I was learning for the first time about the Chief Logan incidents, the fact that Pittsburg was built on the ruins of Fort Duquesne, how Cincinnati was founded and all about the life and times of Simon Kenton. I certainly didn’t know about the massacre in Piqua, Ohio or the Shawnee silver treasure hidden in Xenia, all these were topics new to my adult mind which should have been introduced in grade school. That’s when I realized that historians were too quick to settle on very shallow historic points when thinking of history. For instance in grade school most of the history was focused on the various wars—World War II seemed like ancient history so anything before that was irrelevant and useless. If you really dug into history the Revolutionary War was studied. And of course the Civil War was taught to bring up discussions of slavery and equality without digging any further into the past.

But digging a bit beyond the Revolution I learned that the pirate Henry Morgan had a lot to do with the Jefferson version of America through the philosopher John Locke and that the United States and capitalism in general was invented during the raiding of Spanish galleons looting the desperate Mayans and Aztecs in Central America. Studying those ancient cultures it quickly became clear that there were even more ancient roots settling those societies, especially in Central Mexico before the Aztecs in the city of Tenochititlan. That city had advanced canals and a social structure that obviously came from a history not recorded, which is completely buried under modern-day Mexico City—which seems intentional. Cortez could have started a Spanish city anywhere, but he chose to build on top of a “pagan Holy spot, which was common, and still is.” None of that was taught in my public education and I felt cheated—and angry.

I now largely disregard most things taught in government schools as a smokescreen to reality. I don’t believe the intentions of public education are good or even attempting to have an accurate investigation into reality. They are simply concerned with shaping public perception to the goals of the state.  The truth is that Christopher Columbus was not the first to arrive in America—far from it. When Columbus arrived under a Spanish flag and a Catholic religion behind him, a great North American culture that had already been participating in global trade had risen and fallen over the 10,000 years prior. A vast portion of the historic puzzle had been erased from our memory and revised around the popular religions of the day ignoring archaeological evidence that was pouring in from thousands of wanna’ be Indiana Jones’ wanting to find their own Ark of the Covenant. A flood of archaeology was sweeping our culture and it was discovering that the previous documented history shaped largely by the government supported Smithsonian Institute was wrong and nothing could be trusted that they said. Some could, but you just can’t tell how much of it—so most has to be completely thrown out, which is a shame.

The evidence was clear. I had been visiting mound sites all over Ohio for most of my life, and seldom did I ever see excavation going on to further investigate the strange formations. Why was that? Well, it’s obvious that nobody wants to dig up anything that might rattle the cage of previous reports. For instance, at Serpent Mound, which is a frequent favorite of mine, they dug up a few bones, put them into a museum and called it a day even though its one of the world’s most intriguing mysteries.   Government institutions around the globe are involved in a massive cover-up and are well aware of the danger of further finds confirming the truth—which is currently hidden behind the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act—which has little to do with actual history. The typical “Indian” who was running around as nomads when Columbus arrived were the remnants of a civilization that had already fallen from grace centuries before—and had lost their way. The NAGPRA gave a segment of the population wronged by previous governments nearly complete control of archaeology in North America not to protect their interests, but to keep the past truly hidden.

But it’s not working, the evidence is pouring in with overwhelming abundance. Armchair archaeologists are doing better work more quickly than the college institution backed scientists and this is problematic for maintaining the future of the cover-up. For instance, the below paragraph is from Richard Dewhurst who wrote an interesting book titled The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America. In it he talks about “The Great Copper Kingdom”:

When reconstructing the true history of the mound builders in America, there is no more important place than Isle Royal, situated in Lake Superior, just off the Keweenaw Peninsula in northern Michigan. Because of a freak volcanic event that twisted the copper-bearing bedrock above the water line, thus allowing all the sulphur impurities to burn away in the open air, the copper found at Isle Royal is the purest found anywhere in the world. The entire region is scarred by ancient mine pits and trenches up to 20 feet deep. Carbon-dating testing of wood remains found in sockets of copper artifacts indicates that some are at least 5700 years old, while other open digs around the area have been dated to 8-10,000 years old. The most conservative estimates calculate that during a ten thousand-year period, over 500,000 tons of copper was taken from the mines. At the other end of the spectrum in “Prehistoric Copper Mining in the Lake Superior Region,” published in 1961, Drier and Du Temple estimated that over 1.5 billion pounds of copper had been mined from the region. Since traditional researchers refuse to analyze European copper for its probable Michigan signature, no one has been able to account for where all this copper ended up. That it was traded and used extensively across the United States by the Mound Builders there is no question. But this is no way can account for the magnitude of copper taken out of these unique mines. What researchers have determined is a continuous history mining activity that begun in 8,000 B.C. and then abruptly ended around 1500 B.C., contemporaneous with the volcanic explosion on Cretan Thera (Santorini). Since rock-cut pictures of Cretan trading vessels have been found in the area, this lends credence to the Cretan connection in North America at a very early date. In addition, researchers have also determined that copper mining activity resumed again around 900 A.D. This date corresponds perfectly with related evidence of a Viking presence in the area around that same date.


Imagine the implication of this statement—how much European copper could be traced back to this Michigan mine? If any could be it would destroy the premise that Columbus discovered America which would be a really deep nail in the coffin of Catholic history and domination after the Roman Empire. Essentially the last claims of greatness of that same Roman Empire would be swept away as they had previously attempted to erase evidence of any culture that came before them having any level of sophistication. But it appears quite obvious that Western Civilization wishes to believe that all human thought, science, philosophy, and history started around 450 BC with Socrates—which is simply not true. It looks as though thought, science, and philosophy in a fairly advanced state existed in frequent trade from America to Europe for over 10,000 years before Socrates—and this is something that the religions of Europe simply can’t deal with.

Yet the facts are the facts, they are there in front of us to pick up and look at, yet nobody dares to look from the established sciences—because they are afraid of the answer. They don’t want to know, and they don’t want anybody digging it up—which at this point is beyond their scope of control. Archaeology is flourishing on the History and Travel Channel—it is being suppressed in the education institutions to fulfill a government backed agenda to preserve grant funding. And that is why we don’t know more than we do, which should anger everyone. It does me. There is no Columbus Day because he didn’t discover America—he simply had a hand in naming it. Likely the Hopi Indians of Northern Arizona are stranded Chinese who mixed with the Aztec cultures and are likely older versions of other Chinese people who settled or traded in a global trade network that reaches back to the time of the Great Pyramid of Khufu. We have been mislead dear reader, and we celebrate all the wrong holidays and pay reverence to historic origins that are as fictitious as a Star Wars movie. The real history is much more interesting and has yet to be uncovered. But with the new breed of armchair archaeologists doing such good work out there—it’s only a matter of time. But regarding public education, we all have good reason to despise it for the roll it has played in hiding history from the minds that deserve to know better.

The Kind of People Public Education Makes: Reasons not to fund government school

Every now and again I get a very revealing comment from some dissident who expects the collective hive of humanity to finance their personal whims. Such a comment can be seen below which has three main topics contained within it worth note regarding my video on the upcoming 2017 Lakota levy proposal. The commenter makes some very concise progressive arguments that require extensive examination, but first, let’s have a look at their opinion not just for its entertainment value, but for its essential argument.

I know you thrive on people like me commenting, but if you are that miserable living in this district find somewhere else to go. Or run for the school board. Your consistent attack on schools shows you didn’t have a good time in school growing up. That isn’t the case for everybody. Being this negative all the time has got to feel miserable for you.

The first assumption is that as a long time resident in the Lakota district that I should be willing to move just because a bunch of tax increase supporters moved in from progressive regions of the country—like the East Coast, and brought with them the mentality of their homeland. The same flood of ideology is actually behind the argument of amnesty where Democrats support bringing in voters from south of the border in socialist and communist countries so that they will vote in favor of measures that favor progressive advancements. The same happens with housing developments. Government schools see alliances with increased housing development as a change agent for community relations. I liked my community before those people showed up. I put up with them when I have to see them around town. But I find it intolerable that their lifestyle choices dictate that I pay them more money. There isn’t anywhere on earth where you can run from these second-hander type people, because they seek to consume everything and everyone in their path as they must consume the essence of others to sustain themselves—like any typical parasite. There is a reason that most levy supporters have in their ranks a host of real estate agents who use school levies to make easy sales to cultural dissidents looking for the latest and greatest new thing. Currently my community is that latest and greatest thing. In two decades people like that commenter will be off to the next place leaving the Lakota district an empty husk like a plate after a meal. They will have consumed everything they could and moved on to something else leaving someone else to clean up the mess. At that time, I will likely still be involved in the area and that will be people like me. They’ll be long gone and their kids will be saying the same stupid stuff to somebody else who moved deep into the country to get away from idiots like that, only to have a new generation of saps sucking off the efforts of others.

The next question is that if I know so much about education management of resources then why don’t I run for school board and solve the problem from the inside. Well, I have been approached about this before and many thought that during the Lakota campaigns in the past that my eventual angle was to be a school board member. Actually, I just didn’t want to pay higher taxes for something I think is inefficient and in desperate need of a reboot. Public education to me is one of the dumbest and most out-dated concepts in our modern society. I don’t think there’s anything effective on a substantive level, about public education let alone enough to support justification of the money forced from property owners to continue financing. My management method as a school board member would be to shut the whole thing down, not to find a way to preserve it. If pretentious people like that commenter want a free baby sitting service for their children, then they should pay for it. There are much, much better ways of getting an education in modern America and if parents really cared about their children, they’d pull them out of a public class and teach them in a private school or at home with the vast resources available today. Loving a kid does not mean sending them to school. It requires a lot more than that. Supporting children in educational opportunities is important, but restricting children to a government education system that is obviously not working is not the answer.

One of the things that Scott Sloan from 700 WLW wanted me to do during the Lakota campaign was to join with the pro levy people to argue at the state level a proper allocation of state funding, which is currently considered unconstitutional. His wife is a real estate agent and put up with our school levy rants only so long, until it became problematic and evident that I wasn’t buying into the state funding solution. I wasn’t going to argue toward the state to send more money to Lakota because the money would just be lost in inflated wages driven too high by collective bargaining agreements. So long as there is a labor union in charge of Lakota or any public education institution, management is not possible. My answer is to just de-fund it, shut it down, make the labor unions illegal, then and only then can there be some measure of management and reform of public education. Otherwise, it’s a waste of time. Any discussion of money, funding, or taxes to support failure is just stupid.

I have said recently in another article, which is probably why this guy brought it up, that I didn’t enjoy my school years. I thought of it as a waste of time. I was ready to graduate in the third grade and was miserable every single year thereafter until I graduated. I looked at the school as a prison and on my graduation day, I was released and I never looked back. I had lots of friends and I still do. I’m far from an anti-social hermit. In fact, I have so many people who I correspond with that I don’t have hours in a given day to spend with all of them. I couldn’t in a hundred lifetimes. My school years were not as this commenter alluded, miserable because of some social status whereas people like them had fun in school—within the social structure of a government backed entity. Some people love that kind of structure and I see those people as huge contributors to many of the modern problems facing our world today. It is not my job to fund people’s good experiences, which is what the commenter expects. Because they are the feeble type that like functioning within the structure of government schools they expect everyone to pay for their sustenance. I think government schools make people like that commenter worse and more neurotic as people, so paying them more money to create more of that behavior makes no sense to me. I couldn’t wait to leave school. I sure as hell don’t want to spend the rest of my life paying for other people to attend such a place. That is also just stupid.

As to being a miserable person or feeling miserable because of always thinking about such negativity—nothing could be further from the truth. Naturally, I’m a positive person—actually excessively so. I can endure large amounts of negativity without being encumbered by misery. I am also self-sustaining meaning that I don’t live through other people the way a lot have been taught to. So there is a spill over effect to my optimism which many enjoy, and depend on. It is no problem for me to deal with really complex and sorrowful issues without personally becoming miserable as a result. I can write long articles like this one every day for the rest of my life and then immediately turn around and do something fun with my wife and kids at the drop of a hat. Life is something meant to be approached the way children play. You have to extract some level of joy out of all situations otherwise you are doing something wrong. The mere fact that this commenter brought this issue up dictates that they are subject to misery, depression, and other forms of mental illness derived from living an incorrect life lacking intellectual mechanism for navigation through day-to-day activity. That is not a problem for me and it never will be. That is why I take these issues on, because other people seem to have trouble staying on course and still maintain their sanity. The utterance of a miserable condition is not applicable. Public school helps create neurosis which leads to mental illness of various degrees, and it would appear the commenter is prone to such things based on their perceptual reality. They shouldn’t assume that everyone in the world is prone to the same weaknesses.

You can learn a lot from the type of comments that people make, and over time you can build up quite a data base of behavioral conditions which invoke them. When it comes to public education the most successful products of government seem to be the greatest menaces to modern freedom and righteous thinking. The obvious conclusion is to eliminate that corrosive element which is my position on public education. As a government backed entity its exclusive product is to create second-handers–people who live through others for their personal sustenance. The commenter is clearly one of those types of people and he assumes that the entire world should think the way he does. And his ultimate presumption to the comment provided is that if you don’t like the way he thinks, then it is your obligation to leave. That is not how the world works. The fault is his in allowing himself to think incorrectly about things and to be taught such ridiculous concepts that are completely stupid, and irrelevant to logic.

Labor Unions are a form of Terrorism: Scott Walker was right

The scum bag old hippies from the labor movement sent me one of their propaganda pieces over the weekend still upset at Scott Walker for successfully making Wisconsin a right-to-work state. Their argument was an implied insult made by Walker during a speech poising himself for a presidential run saying, “If I can take on 100,000 protestors, I can do the same with Islamic terrorists.”  The labor unions of Wisconsin and within the Democratic Party felt that the comparison of labor union workers protesting the reforms that Walker was implementing were inaccurately being compared to terrorists as if such a thing was a radical departure from reality. But the truth is, any labor union that uses force, coercion, or fear of any kind to make their point is an act of terror. They may not go to the extra level of killing people to make their point, but they certainly did try to damage Walker politically and personally on several occasions and their motives were to invoke terror upon the governor with the same tactical aims in mind as the terrorists of Islam are seeking to achieve through their actions.

Just because the terrorists in this case aren’t wearing towels on their heads and cutting the throat of so-called infidels on a beach in the Mediterranean, if the intention is to make a point against a rival position by using fear instead of logic—the action is one of terrorism. The labor unions have been conducting themselves in such a manner for years, and they don’t get a free pass just because they are American citizens, or members of the Democratic Party backed by laws created by the Department of Labor. Terrorism is anything that invokes fear to accelerate acceptance of the perpetrator’s point of view.

And while we’re at clarifying definitions, let’s also look at the type of language used by labor unions to describe themselves. In the propaganda piece the labor union described their position as such, “Scott Walker compared Wisconsin workers to terrorists. He wants to be president, STOP HIM.” From there they have a little link you can click that takes you to a petition page so you can sign your name to their plight as if some collective mass of ignorance could stop the reality of their foolishness. Workers in the way that labor unions and members of the Democratic Party machine use it, is a term utilized by the philosophy of Karl Marx in his various articulations on the merits of communism, such as in the Communist Manifesto where he ends the book “workers of the world unite.” In the manner that Marx indicated he was calling for an act of terrorism against the management of labor in capitalist enterprises. When “workers” strike and don’t perform tasks of labor, they are no longer “working” they are denying labor to an employer—so they require a different technical classification. A worker in a capitalist country is someone who conducts productive enterprise. A worker in communist and socialist endeavors is a protestor who uses terrorism to extort money they did not earn through collective bargaining agreements by threatening to destroy productivity or the profit margins of their employer through a strike.

Recently the labor unions of the west coast port workers managed to wrestle a contract negotiation settlement for themselves by slowing down work for a number of months costing many millions of dollars in profit. That was economic terrorism where the employers were forced to take the lesser of two evils, they could not operate their business due to the back log in work the labor union “workers” were imposing on them, or they could agree to the labor demands of their protestors and at least collect enough money to stay in business. With average wages of $147,000 per year the ILWU union deliberately brought the management of the west coast ports to their knees with drag-assing techniques designed to hurt their employer so to wrestle away more money from them. That was and is an act of terrorism.

In my home school district of Lakota in 2013 when they wanted to pass a tax increase which they had been unsuccessful three prior times due to arguments that I posed to the public which they could not overcome, they resorted to terrorism through labor union radicalism. The district wanted to give overpaid government employees more money so they needed a tax increase on property values to do it. They used the recent school shooting at Sandy Hook to swing voters about 5% into their direction as they promised to spend the money on “safety and security.” Lakota as a district was doing what public schools do all across the nation when they want more money for their teacher unions—they make parents afraid that something might happen to their children if something isn’t done in their favor. To help drive the point home just a few days before the election a death threat was found in the girls bathroom promising a shooting spree which of course made all the papers and news outlets. Enough parents were scared to vote in favor of the tax increase and Lakota received their money. They didn’t get the money in a straight up and down vote on logic. Lakota had to utilize some form of terror to provoke people into voting for their cause making it an act of terrorism. Of course they didn’t cross the line to become actual killers like the ISIS terrorists have, but they did use fear to achieve their objectives.

And in Wisconsin, against Scott Walker, there were death threats, political maneuvers designed to invoke fear in the population, threats that the economy of the state would be wrecked if Walker got his way—none of which actually happened. The labor unions were using fear to preserve their grip on the state’s economy and under Walker’s leadership, they failed. So out of all the presidential candidates seeking a run for the office in 2016, Walker is the most experienced in dealing with terrorism. He did successfully battle it among the various labor unions in his state. Those labor unions did sometimes threaten to kill him, but unlike ISIS, they didn’t actually try to carry it out. But the threats were made—and those threats are considered to be terrorism with the same intentions as the ISIS terrorist—to achieve a tactical objective through the means of inflicting some form of terror to move an opponent off their position.

The word “worker” is not sacred in American politics. To people who create work the term indicates the potential for some radicalized protest that will cost money and a huge amount of damage to the public relations of any endeavor. Labor unions don’t get to live under different rules by the shadows of reality just because they are Americans. If they desire to inflict fear because they can’t win an argument through logic, they are in fact a form of terrorist. Any time coercion is utilized to achieve a political objective; it is an act of terrorism.   Obama conducted himself as a terrorist when he sent a picture to congress with his pen promising executive orders if they did not do as he demanded. When they refused, such as in the amnesty issue, Obama signed an executive order that ended up as a rider to the Department of Homeland Security bill which is presently being voted upon in the House. Those against the DHS funding bill are upset at Obama’s executive order for amnesty which is really just another way for Democrats to buy votes for future elections. They make up lots of fancy terms for things, but at the heart of the reality, they are behaving as terrorists, because they use fear to drive policy implementation. And of the potential candidates in 2016, Scott Walker has the right kind of mind to deal with the type of domestic terrorism that has so crippled the American economy for years in the labor unions. It’s quite clear that he has the ability to deal with terrorists who don’t even try to hide their actions behind suits and ties—and Washington lobbyists. Walker’s track record and statement was correct. And the labor unions know it—that’s why they’re afraid of him.

A Case in Favor of the Kroger Marketplace: Sometimes the way to save something old is with something new

I was very much against the proposed Kroger Marketplace at the corner of 747 and Taylorsville Road in West Chester, Ohio. The opposition was because the people around the community didn’t want it and the developer didn’t seem to want to construct the buffer zone that was needed to appease the community according to news reports. The Kroger store was supposed to be a service to the community in a positive way, but the people who had moved in and around the area obviously didn’t want anything to do with it. So the trustees listened to the voters instead of laying down flat for the developers and the project halted, which I applauded. Now a different developer wants to build a Marketplace literally at the end of my street, and I am quite happy about it. So what’s the difference?

For several decades now the RT 4 corridor that runs a short way through Liberty Township, Ohio has been an optimal area for commercial and business development. When I arrive home after a long trip I cherish my hometown intersection of RT 4 and Liberty Fairfield Road which includes a traditional Kroger store that has been swelling over the years to a breaking point. Often my wife and I go to the strip mall where the Kroger currently exists and eat Chinese food at the little place there which I think is some of the finest in the country. On a Saturday, traffic is terrible because that Kroger is so swelled making further quests into the surrounding businesses unattractive.

The prospect of a 133,868 square foot Kroger Marketplace being built just up the road and diagonally across from the Elk Run golf course to replace the current one is very attractive just because the business at the old one is so robust that it demands an expansion. I purposely don’t like going to Kroger because it’s just too cramped. We typically get our Chinese food and go home because driving through and around the Kroger parking lot is just too cramped that it’s not worth it. One of the benefits of that particular intersection and the developments there is that everything is so spread out, so traffic is typically handled well. I’m happy to see a new Waffle House being erected next to the Taco Bell and LaRosa’s which is across from the McDonald’s and Skyline Chili. There are so many dining options at that intersection that it looks deceptively rural. But, I can get just about everything I need there. I can get my car repaired. I can purchase advanced firearms. I can get all my household maintenance needs between Tractor Supply and Ace Hardware. My wife and I frequently eat at the Frisch’s. Our banking is there, there’s a Hallmark. A Beverage Barn is run by a wonderful Indian family and were among the first in the area to special order Mello Yello for me directly, before the Coke Company resumed distribution back to the Cincinnati area a few years ago. There are so many positive developments that allow my family to do virtually everything we need to do within two miles of our home and I love it.   But the grocery experience is just too inconvenient.

The wealth of the area is conducive to the type of grocery experience that a Kroger Marketplace offers. I like the options offered in the other Liberty Township Kroger store which is a Marketplace—but it’s too far away to be considered convenient. So for me the Kroger Marketplace offers a fix to my present dilemma and the zoning for years has wanted to move in that direction at that particular location, the corner of Kyles Station and RT. 4. There are of course people who enjoy the view of an empty field, including myself. I still enjoy the sight of the occasional farming that takes place on that high hill which looks down into Trenton within the valley of the Great Miami River. But for business development, that particular location is one of the best in the area and is needed due to the value of the developments surrounding it.

There are homes around my property that are in the half million dollar range. The Elk Run Golf course I think is one of the nicest in the city—as it is very picturesque and classy. It’s a bit dated, but is due for an update which will only come if people continue to see the value in it. In a lot of ways the new Kroger will do a lot to bring the proper demographic of financial value to the area directly across from the golf course to appreciate what Elk Run offers as an asset of Liberty Township. Of that new demographic is the residents of the new Carriage Hill development which featured Homarama two consecutive years with homes upward of a million dollars in value. People who have homes like that don’t want to be cramped into a box full of dated architecture and limited shelf space. They want options, high-end cooking ingredients, and a shopping experience that is professional, and free of neurosis. The proposed Kroger Marketplace in Liberty Township is poised to provide all those options and more because the location, view, and proximity to so many family dwellings is just phenomenal.

The West Chester location was nothing like the Liberty Township location as far as placement and overall community impact. The West Chester location needed a developer that understood what the community was weary of. That particular intersection along 747 is very busy already as the Lakota school down the road really mounts up the traffic in the morning and afternoons. The homes in the immediate area already have to contend with a great deal of traffic on crowded roads. But in Liberty Township along RT 4, the road infrastructure is already built; it just needs the construction to begin.

As for the complaints, local residents won’t want to trade their view of a grassy field for a parking lot full of cars. I will be impacted as my wife and I enjoy evenings in our hot tub looking at the stars. The lights from the new Kroger will add to the light pollution which will dilute out more stars from our view.   But it’s a small price to pay for the types of high-end food offerings that are typical of a Kroger Marketplace. I will gladly welcome the new development as it will greatly enhance my life and does what new creations are supposed to—it will improve life in the community. It will bring a fresh new awareness not just to the area, but to the legacy items currently already there and in a state of decline.

To this day the Western Row golf course is an empty field. The course died years ago before the spur of development along Mason-Montgomery Rd occurred and there are no takers to develop such a large plot of highly expensive real-estate now that the prices are through the roof. The property is too expensive for a golf course, and too large for more restaurants and small stores.  So it sits in limbo. I would like to not see the same thing happen to Elk Run. I love the Elk Run property. I love the golf course. But because taxes are so high, it would be too expensive to privately own if the golf course fails in the future. And it’s too big to fill with business. It has taken twenty years to fill what has been built along that span of RT 4—so it’s not logical to expect Elk Run to fill with anything but more homes at some point. So for those who love green space and the scenery on top of the big hill in Liberty Township the best way to preserve it is to fully support the new Kroger Marketplace in Liberty Township. What’s wrong with a round of golf before a grocery shopping trip? Nothing at all. At the proposed location I would hope that the Elk Run golf course would enjoy new life from a new demographic support system instead of fading away into the sunset as an older generation moves on to greener pastures and a new generation perpetually looks for something new. Sometimes it takes something new to keep the old alive—and in this case, the new Kroger Marketplace will do just the trick.

Being Judgmental: Be sure to throw rocks at glass houses often


I have heard some of the dumbest things over the last few weeks that I believe I have ever heard from the largest contingent of individual minds. Most of the reason is that it has been the Holiday Season and that inevitably puts you in touch with people you only speak to a few times a year. Between all the Christmas parties on a professional end, and all the family functions, the last two weeks of December puts you in touch with a lot of people if you happen to know them. Of course conversations spawn from these interactions which for me is often frustrating and by the time I enter the new year I am ready to never speak to another soul and return to my stacks of books as my favorite pastime due to the let down in finding out how little is on everyone’s minds. This is a typical reaction at least in my house but this year for whatever reason it was much worse. I would attribute this to the emergence of the demographic group—the 25 to 35 year olds who feel that their time for respect has come and that they have arrived to the adult world. What is discovered when talking to them is that they have microwaved intellects that begin as a frozen turkey only to be blasted for five minutes on high to emerge as a steaming carcass on the outside. But inside they are still frozen solid and are completely unthawed for consumption. This is most realized in the most usual banter that comes from them—and those pathetic souls who are in their middle years who wish to be just like them—that humans are not to pass judgment against each other, so to hide their evils. I can’t say how many times over the last two weeks that I have heard “don’t judge” as part of the dialogue.

Anyone who has had interactions with the Church has heard the Matthew quote from 7:1-6, “We must judge ourselves and judge our own acts, but not to make our word a law to everybody. We must not judge rashly, nor pass judgment upon our brother without any ground. We must not make the worst of people. Here is just reproof to those who quarrel with their brethren for small faults while they allow themselves in greater ones. Some sins are as motes, while others are as beams; some as a gnat, others as a camel. Not that there is any sin little, if it be a mote, or a splinter, it is in the eye; if a gnat, it is in the throat; both are painful and dangerous, and we cannot be easy or well till they are got out. That which charity teachers us to call but a splinter in our brother’s eye, true repentances and godly sorrow will teach us to call a beam in our own. It is as strange that a man can be in a sinful, miserable condition, and not be aware of it, as that a man should have a beam in his eye, and not considered it; but the god of this world blinds their minds. Here is a good rule for reprovers; first reform thyself.” Or in other words, don’t throw rocks in glass houses, we are all sinners and therefore not qualified to judge others—so leave that business to the church, pay your offerings and leave your neighbor be.  That is part one of this tragedy of modern times. Part two is that the secular public school system has used this ingrained tendency to further destroy in young minds the natural process of being human—and that is to think—and therefore to judge one’s surroundings and path through life.

When it is being demanded that one should not judge another in either the Biblical or secular context, what is expected is for one to turn off their minds and simply not think. Those people are expected to just leave the business of judgment to others in the church or some unknown deity interpreted by mankind itself. Just leave judgment to the authorities—more or less. Well, the result is the kind of sheer stupidity that I heard over the 2014 Holiday which led to my opinion about Facebook. (CLICK HERE TO REVIEW) Only an idiot would turn off their judgment to endorse some of the vile things uttered from the mouths of a very spoiled demographic catered to for their entire lives only to be unleashed unprepared upon the world to assume that they are done cooking like the quickly microwaved Turkey—hot to the touch but ice-cold and completely unthawed in the center. While the Church has played its part in the debacle the ultimate failure is in the public school and college system.

Many of us noticed this ten years ago when we first started fighting school levies when it was obvious that the public school system was failing miserably in teaching kids fundamentals about life and navigating through it—and charging tax payers premium fees for the service which essentially was a baby sitting opportunity for working parents too busy with their careers for the job. Now we are seeing the result of that chaotic lifestyle in these young people who are suddenly entering adulthood justifying the sins of their own loved ones with a Christian mantra against judgment backed with the secular public schools advocating placing their faith in the greater good of society rather than in their own intelligence.

Judgment is part of the human experience. We do it when we drive a car, when we decide what kind of food to eat, what we do for a living, how we conduct virtually every part of our life. Without judgment, we are rudderless animals poised for self-destruction. It is completely asinine to expect a family to sit back and watch a child ruin their lives on drugs while running around with a terrible crowd of miscreants without passing judgment on the kid or the people who paved the way toward that type of social destruction. Then for other family members to swarm to the defense of the bad behavior under the guise of not judging—as if the matter should be left to God through a repentance process. Meanwhile, evil is allowed to spread from person to person like a common cold to infect many instead of a few and everyone is just supposed to stand around and be happy about it? No. That is not how things work and anybody who then uses the Bible as a crutch has not studied the Bible properly. Not passing judgment on others allows evil to spread like fire among dry timber—fast and furious. I would argue in addition that the Biblical passivity toward judgment was caused by faults in the minds of man while interpreting “God’s Word” during a time when the Church wanted to rule the world as the premier authority on all things—namely science, so it can’t be completely trusted and only “judgment” will allow such a conclusion.

Another derogatory comment that I have personally heard all my life is that it is bad to have a “Holier than thou” approach to life—as if to say nobody is perfect. This idea that I was perfectly willing to throw rocks in glass houses knowing full well that I didn’t live in one, was somehow bad.  It has led me to a lot of trouble not because of anything illegal or improper, but because it stood in stark contrast to the surrounding world and their values formed by thoughtless surrender to non-judgment. The “holier than thou” mantra has been cast in my direction to my beginnings including the bus ride that I have talked about before when I was in the fourth grade and a pack of fifth graders told me they’d beat me up if I didn’t take the hit of speed they were trying to force down my throat on the bus ride back home from school. I threw the pills out of the window as I vowed never to take any drugs of any kind. I got into a big fight and hurt some of the kids and I got into a lot of trouble—and that wasn’t the last time. I did the same for many years to many more people all in a fight against the spread of drugs.

When it comes to young people I have earned the right to tell them they shouldn’t smoke, they shouldn’t do drugs, and they shouldn’t get drunk. I don’t do any of those things and I never have, and I never ever will. In regards to drinking it was always about showing that I could still command my senses against the current of alcohol consumption which is a practice I still embark on. In over a quarter century of adult life there isn’t one person who could come forward and declare they saw Rich Hoffman drunk and senseless anywhere at any time. That’s not to say that I haven’t drank 5 to 6 dunkel mugs at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport just because I enjoyed the old German beverage. But for me it’s always been about mastering command over intoxicants, not in surrendering to them—ever. Mind over matter in every case. If beer and alcohol were outlawed it wouldn’t hurt my feelings in the least, and I think drugs of every kind, like cocaine, heroine, meth, and marijuana should be not only be illegal, but should be removed from planet earth and launched into a nuclear furnace at the center of the universe. I hate them that much. I hate drugs and I hate drug abusers. I won’t vote for Rand Paul just because of his loose stance on drugs—that’s how bad I hate drugs in our culture. But I walk the talk and always have—as I do with everything else in my life.

Being “holier than thou” is a good thing. It is good because it makes those conducting their life in a bad way feel bad—and that is “good.” And to determine that holier than thou judgments have to be made. It doesn’t make a person who despises drugs and their abuse among loved ones a hypocrite because they don’t want to associate with the dregs of society. It makes them honest. And honesty is the core tenet of any Biblical study. For those who do wish to pass judgment—which the world needs a lot more of—live up to your opinion—stand by it through thick and thin. Don’t allow the youth trained toward evil to waver your thoughts as “old” and “outdated.” To surrender to this opinion is to allow evil to spread without restraint, and that isn’t what the world needs.

And to those who point and call those of us with opinions as hypercritic aristocrats, and violators of Christian doctrine, look at your pathetic lives and declare honestly that not having judgment in your life has been good in any way at all. The failures of the present point back to that long ago conversation in the kitchen of our youth when we had the argument about marijuana smoking and whether or not it was harmful. Look at your lives now and what that permissiveness has done to not only your lives, but those of your children. And the only way you can hide the crime and own stupidity is to insist that nobody judge you, that everybody is a sinner, and that nobody is any better. But guess what—they are. And that is a grim reality that all the evasion in the world can’t hide with backward chants, Ouija boards, and cries for help beyond the grave to rescue the circumstances of the present due to extremely poor judgment. By the way all those things have been called out against me by people who didn’t want me to “judge” them, and I have learned to deal not just with man, but the armies of thuggish demons who are so easily seduced by those Ouija boards to assist the feeble-minded in trade for some merit. I know a lot about this issue—believe me. The overman concept was forged in those fires.

I am holier than thou because I can be. And I’m very proud of it. It is the best weapon to fight evil with, and an armament that I wish everyone in the world to possess. If I have it my way, which eventually is my goal—they will. It starts with not feeling guilty and proceeds to be forged with honesty, contemplation and the willingness to move out of a glass house so that you can then throw rocks at it. And it ends with passing judgment often and with great fanfare so that the work of evil has nowhere to hide under the scrutiny of intelligence. So my advice to you dear reader is judge, and judge often and feel not an ounce of guilt about anything. Because “they” use that guilt as leverage against your opinion—and that is how evil spreads and the good work of good is destroyed forever.

Thank goodness the Holiday is over. My books are much better company.

Staying Fat, Dumb and Happy: Edward Leedskalnin’s thoughts on public education

To those who have read Edward Leeskalnin’s book Magnetic Current they have the fortune of knowing that it is as revolutionary as Einstein’s E=MC2. In the book Leeskalnin explains how to remove magnetic currents from objects and to manipulate them in a way that is useful. Yet the information is technically impossible by modern methods of science as there is some missing knowledge in getting from here to Leeskalnin’s assumptions. The impact of Leeskalnin’s understanding to magnetism will eventually be much more revolutionary than Tesla’s experiments with AC current as opposed to Edison’s DC. Tesla was attacked and buried by his former boss in Edison so to preserve the power grid model we see today that is unionized as a public utility—and controlled by government backed monopolies. Yet Leeskalnin and Tesla were using electrical current and magnetism in ways that tapped into the cosmic supply of that energy—which never runs out making the levitation of giant objects and perpetual use of power completely free as an obtainable possibility. The difference is essentially the Internet we have today which costs a fee to have access but once there, the world is at your feet in as much abundance as you can handle—as opposed to Obama’s attempts through the FCC to control and regulate the Internet as a public utility.

Once the government gets involved in anything its game over for invention and options and this has never been truer than with government schools. Leeskalnin was a certified genius—click here to read more about him—and in his small book A Book in Every Home, he addressed the education problem emerging in America as early as the 1940s—well before the creation of the Department of Education which I have railed against so intensely. Many would look at the education methods from Leeskalnin’s day and declare that they were the best in the world and created some of the best people ever to walk the earth—they defeated Hitler, unified the world with technology sending people to the moon, encouraged the greatest period of economic growth ever seen in the world prior, brought equality to women, and people of color, and still had time to raise decent families. However, Leeskalnin was not impressed and dropped out of school in the 4th grade because it bored him. His complaints about school were similar to Einstein’s and both had little reverence for the government backed institutions.

In A Book in Every Home Leeskalnin had some very interesting thoughts about the quality of an education system and how to determine if it was any good. He stated:


Now, a few words about eduation. You know we receive an education in the schools from books. All those books that people became educated from twenty-five years ago, are wrong now, and those that are good now will be wrong again twenty-five years from now. So if they are wrong then, they are also wrong now, and the one who is educated from the wrong books is not educated, he is mislead. All books that are written are wrong, the one who is not educated cannot write a book and the one who is can be proved, to possess appreciation and self control.


Now, if you lack willingness to learn, you will remain as a brute and if you do things that are not good and right, you will be a low person, and if you believe in things that cannot be proved, any feeble minded person can lead you, and if you lack appreciation, it takes away the incentive for good doing and if you lack self control you will never know the limit.


So all those lacking these characteristics in their makeup are not eduated.


Essentially what Ed was saying in a manner that reminds me of the way Sun Tzu wrote in The Art of War—which is still used today by military minds—is that most books are written by people not properly educated and of no mind to teach others. The government’s motivation in this debacle is revealed by their desire to go through the motions, yet still delivering people to an ignorant state so that they are easy to control by creating a society of the feeble minded. The government only wants to educate people in the methods of instruction that will lead to a career which serves the state—and not in the wisdom of perpetually obtaining knowledge.

To confirm the results of this vile approach just look at any slack jawed loser who has been trained by their public schools into incurable ignorance. Their minds were destroyed in public education and they now can do very little with their lives but show up at a job they trained for and vote for one of the two members of a political party. The rest of their lives are virtually wasted.


If society had listened to Tesla every home in the world could have free electrical power. There would never be grid failures but each power generation supply would operate like an air conditioning unit does now—they would run and supply free power for as long as the perpetual generator lasted instead of the J.P. Morgan backed debacle we ended up with through Edison. The government wanted unionized employees servicing a power grid, and that’s what we ended up with vulnerable to every downed tree, heavy wind, or car accident that hits a power line. Edward Leedskalnin and his anti-gravity techniques could eliminate huge power equipment for construction and manufacturing methods—but most of those suppliers of equipment are also unionized, and they don’t want average people to gain the ability to lift 20 to30 ton objects the way a child picks up a penny off the sidewalk. The technology is there, but it cannot be unlocked because government schools have taught mass swarms of individuals to think of the collective good before individual selfishness—and in that way nobody dares to provoke the systems put in place by government intrusion—to question their merits.


Yet if you step off the path the governments of the world have led you down dear reader—you will see easily that a better life is easily obtainable. Tesla discovered many of those secretes and so did Edward Leedskalnin. They tried to help people see those secrets by overcoming the public faith in a government backed education system and Leedskalnin’s books were obvious efforts toward that objective. Sadly, especially in Leedskalnin’s case he remained a hermit most of his life because it is just too tormenting for highly intelligent people like him to watch others behave so ignorantly following the same outdated education methods even in a time where the world envied the American system as the best in the world. Leedskalnin understood the deficiency and he tried to warn people of it—but they did not have a mind to listen.


Because of the poor educating methods applied to mass society, there are no minds able to unlock the secrets of Leedskalnin’s book Magnetic Current. There are only knuckle dragging assumptions that always look toward mother government for encouragement and breast milk. And the same slavery of ignorance which has persisted for millennia continues to ruin minds, destroy societies, and eradicate family structure. The only thing government schools are good for is creating compliant minds who will drink too much, shorten their lives considerably with unhealthy choices, and pay their taxes for the employment of slugs who eye every conceivable holiday with a yearning for the intoxication that comes from the hit of a bottle and too many groceries in the refrigerator—keeping them fat, dumb, and happy.

The Religion of Public Education: Turning away from the truth

As many know I have a standard policy of posting the letters rivals send me to share with my readers here. I have put many of them up over the years, especially in the beginning which is evident to anyone who wishes to use the calendar feature to go back into time and read them.   Because of that policy I get a lot less detailed letters than I used to. Instead most of the comments now are short and less revealing like, “you’re mean,” “arrogant” or “hateful.” But recently William Schmidt has remained a consistent critic who has shown so wonderfully how the other side thinks with his continued parade of detailed letters. After I published the one he sent me last week, he decided he’d had enough and sent me the following:

On Saturday, November 1, 2014, Bill Schmidt wrote:


After you again posted another of my e-mails to you on your blog, I told some people that I had been sending e-mails to this anti-school’s guy named Hoffman and that you had been posting and then commenting on them in your blog.  They read some of the entries and then said that you seemed pretty kooky and creepy.  They asked me why I kept sending you e-mails and I told them about your appearances on the radio, etc.  They asked if I thought I could change your narrow mind at all and I said “definitely not”.  So they questioned what was being accomplished by continuing the discourse.

I thought back to Nov of 2011 to when I sent you my first e-mail.  Lakota had just voted down another school levy and it was clear more cuts needed to be made.  I had been made very uncomfortable about how Doc Thompson had made you a spokesman about school finance and how he coddled you by agreeing with everything you would say and how he wasn’t being much of a journalist.  So I wrote you an e-mail which you posted on your blog.  Since then, various things have happened.  You no longer are requested on the radio.  You were kicked out of No Lakota Levy.  A school levy passed in your district.  And, judging that my e-mails are the only ones you seem to put out there, it appears your readership must consist of only a handful of kooks and creeps.

I had to admit that sending you e-mails seems to have no purpose anymore.  We are just rehashing the same old stuff.  I feel you dragging me into the abyss.  I need to let you continue to sink on your own.  Since I only read your school blog diatribes anyway, because the other stuff you write is such nonsense (as illustrated by your recent Virgin Galactic tout), I really doubt if I will be calling up your blog very much anymore. 

Don’t hurt yourself out there trying to find Communists hiding behind the monkey bars but maybe you should take one of your Brown Shirts along with you as you search. I’d say mattjutras might be available. And I’ll be careful trying to find a Kroger survey to participate in.



Years down the road the strategy I am currently conducting will be quite evident. I have worked with others but consistent with my experience, there are severe weaknesses in doing so—so a strategy unique to the times is mandated to implement the needed objectives. I have been building that network now for several years and in doing so certain patterns emerge.

Schmidt’s current position is not that unlike the Laura Sanders episodes, or school board member Julie Schafer—when faced with facts that defy their worldly views, they chose mental evasion to logical observation. They always come around to saying that “you’re not worth the time or investment so I’m leaving.” What they really mean is that “I cannot make you accept my reality so I’m discouraged and will not look in your direction with the same candid flare a child hides under their covers hoping that monsters will not get them.” They often rationalize this position by calling me names like kooky or creepy and think they are smart with connections to debunked communist conspiracies or otherwise scandalous activity leading to public rebuke as if that public had a mind toward intelligence where their collective sum outweighed an individual thought.

Once these people reach the end of their tolerance—of their attempts to reform elements of society into their harmony they retreat to the warm arms of their like-minded despots—such as what William did in a moment of crises. Arrogantly his advisors spoke as if they were Christian missionaries on location in some primitive wilderness and their advice to William the failed missionary was to cut ties with the failed attempt and focus their efforts somewhere that brings success. In this way the government education culture has taken on a type of religious zeal not unlike the Crusades or the current Jihad movement of Islam—that anybody not brainwashed to the religion of their viewpoint should be cast aside as disreputable, or destroyed so that their challenging viewpoints do not threaten the sanctity of their religion—in this case the religion of public education.

There is a long list of such characters that have tried and failed to do what William has. Of them I will say that Schmidt often refrained from going too far which is why I will miss him a bit. He did provide a window into their thinking that I have been using extensively in studies for the referred to upcoming strategies. But as for demeaning my efforts here in attempting to portray them as ineffective and isolated from the mainstream—I can see who reads each day and how many of them there are. I see the many links to Lakota school computers, to the movers and shakers of politics, to the government offices of Columbus, Ohio and Washington D.C. I wouldn’t spend my time if it was wasted—which its not.

But I’m doing things, and planning things that are highly unconventional and certainly not a part of any current political playbook. And it’s all carefully considered and calculated. But as to Schmidt’s wishes of reputation smashing quandary—the meter on the sidebar tells the story better than words. Most newspapers would love to have those numbers, and I don’t sell any advertising aside from links to my own extended works which is about to get a major update. It’s all in the name of authenticity and in these types of political fights; there just aren’t enough characters in the arena who have a heart for that fight—or a proper strategy. And the ones who do are treated as a threat because they are upsetting the apple cart that people like Schmidt depends on. Like a last-minute football play in the closing seconds where a spectator might look away not able to take the drama of the moment—Schmidt’s type always retreats to this effort because the moment is just too much for them. The impact on the world at large is too great and they worry about the changes to their lives if it continues—which I can assure all—it will.

But you can’t do the same old thing over and over. I had a friend at 700 WLW, actually two friends, Darryl Parks and Doc Thompson. They were both fired largely due to people like William Schmidt who complained to the station and its advertisers hoping to quell the message against their social scam. 700 WLW is much friendlier now toward the William Schmidt types—the pro-pot, gay-marriage supporting advocates. They are a sports talk station that does not currently get involved in messy politics. They probably will return to that at some point in the future, but as for now, they are playing it safe. That was their decision. They have invited me on their programs which I have declined. Their criteria wished me to take on the role of the villain instead of the role I formally had—and that wasn’t going to happen. So we have moved on to other things separately. But those other things will likely have more power than the former things and that is the concern that Schmidt and his advisors see on the horizon.

So as things continue on, I will miss Schmidt and his window into oblivion—where his kind considers anything with a three syllable word—“kooky,” or “scary.” There is value in studying the problem, but as often is the case the problem when it knows that eyes are on their tail retreats into a hiding place trying to buy additional moments for its sustenance. But the time is running out—and they know it—even if they turn their eyes away hoping to maintain an illusion for just a moment longer.
