Since last week, the Media and the American public have been mesmerized and absorbed by the aerial phenomena occurring over the homeland, meaning the sovereign territory of the United States. It is non-stop coverage and will likely remain so for several weeks. Important as it is, it is nonetheless a diversion to distract from some very important hearings going on in Washington, D.C.—especially those related to abuse of power, and possible collusion over the last three years between the FBI, Big Tech, and Social Media relevant to possible election interference, and manipulation of the public’s perception. Not to mention hearings about the chaos and disintegration of our Southern border.
Even more insidious though is the fact that while we look wherever we are told to look, a “cancer” has metastasized in the United States—threatening the Heartland of our great nation. By that, I mean those states that do not border the Atlantic or Pacific oceans.
A few weeks ago I wrote a commentary about California being the prototype for all social and cultural attacks upon our country and its values. It was my contention that one should watch all things that are implemented in California, with the expectation that they will soon be spreading to other parts of the country—”coming to a theater near you.” One of the examples was a “universal Income” experiment going on in a section of Los Angeles where the citizens are being compensated an extra $1000 or so a month because they are disadvantaged in some way. Another is proposed reparations. If you follow the news, you know by now that those “ideas” are spreading to other states like Massachusetts, New York etc.
But now, a “cancer” that we have all had our attention on for at least the last two years has metastasized and is growing and spreading into areas you never considered. We have all watched the parents in Loudoun County, Va fight valiantly to regain control of the curriculum their children are being exposed to. They have been maligned, called domestic terrorists, and vilified as they continue their battle to regain control of their children’s education. It is a reflection of how dire the situation has become when a battle has begun about parental rights with children versus the government’s rights with children. One belongs universally in the column of free nations, the other in the column of communist or totalitarian nations.
Well, brace yourselves. My home is in Montana. It is a magnificent state with a rich history. It is referred to as “God’s Country” and “The Last Best Place.” I moved here from California in 2002, fulfilling a lifelong dream. What I am about to say is relevant to every citizen in Montana, and more importantly, to every citizen in this country—especially those states considered the Heartland, those states that do not border an ocean, and who most often reflect traditional and conservative values.
As an author of prescient political fiction, I am accustomed to people bringing to me stories and proof of what I have written about in my novels. For more than 15 years enthusiastic followers have done what I call “confirming research” by revealing that what I wrote about has now happened. I have grown comfortable to a degree with my books playing out in the real world. But nothing could have prepared me for what I just learned. The following is anecdotal.
In a city near me, a city with only one school district that I am aware of, a scene I speculated upon in “White King and the Seat at the Table,” and which I thought really stretched credulity for the state of Montana, appears to have now occurred in the real world.
A school Principal/Superintendent was hired from California. (That should be your first alarm bell.) At first the individual appeared to be a good addition to the district. By the second year however I am told they announced to the teachers that they were removing History from the curriculum, and replacing it with Humanities. These are two distinct disciplines, and you can probably guess where this is headed.
Shortly after, portraits of Washington and Lincoln were arbitrarily removed from the Kindergarten classroom, to be destroyed. Both portraits were salvaged by a teacher. Next, all teachers were told they were not to say “boys” and “girls” but to refer to everyone as a genderless “friends” category because the administration felt children were too young to really know yet what sex they were, and should not be called a boy or a girl. Books were introduced in the elementary school showing and discussing sex and sexuality.
Teachers who stood up and fought back against this perversion of education models and standards were ostracized, threatened, isolated, and eventually fired or forced to quit. Their “union” folded in the face of the possibility of filing suit against the District by saying that since previous claims of misconduct had been denied, theirs would not be taken seriously either.
This “cancer” persisted however. Even when the teachers who stood up were no longer employed by the school, they were purportedly blacklisted and prevented from getting new jobs in their chosen field, even blacklisted and vilified in new, lesser jobs in the community. Secretly parents and business owners agreed with them, and gave them the thumbs up. But no one has had the courage to stand up and fight this “cancer” in the education system. Given what I write about, I know they fear for their own jobs or businesses.
This is one of the symptoms of Fascism—a populace that is too cowed to fight back. A populace that has succumbed. Free speech and the right to protest have died. Anyone who may attempt to will be cancelled and censored.
The Principal in question has left—and no one knows where they have gone. I personally would suspect they have returned to California, mission accomplished. However, they have been replaced by someone they knew from California. To my beloved fellow Montanans, said to you by one who chose to leave the state of California, and embrace the spirit of Montana, you are now in Stage Four. In the world of medicine, when a cancer has left its original site, and metastasized, it is now known as Stage Four. Generic treatment of the cancer is no longer as effective. When the source of the cancer is detected, then precise treatments that are known to destroy it are developed. Blanket cancer treatment often misses the target, or hits the wrong target. But location of the real source opens the door for a targeted treatment regimen.
And I would say to everyone of my fellow countrymen, the “cancer” has spread to you too. But, if you do not identify the actual source of it, you will not be able to defeat it. You will engage in arduous protracted battles, and eventually succumb. Knowing the source, you have some hope. And that is why you must watch ALL cultural and social experiments that arise in California. In the name of Democracy, they are the true threat to our democracy. As one who spent years in Hollywood, I can assure you this crew knows Public Relations, and how to manipulate even the sanest in America.
If this shocked you that it could occur in MONTANA, then know that none of us are safe. This malignancy has taken hold. We are in the fight of our lives. For, if the Heartland of the United States falls, the United States falls. And, if the United States falls, freedom and self-governance around the world fall.
