Illegal Immigrants in Indiana

At the direction of President Joseph Biden, the federal government is flooding the United States with illegal immigrants (a.k.a. illegal aliens). Reports are illegal immigrants are being transported to all over the interior of our country.

I became curious about how this might be impacting Indiana, so I called the Governor’s office with questions. I talked directly with one of Governor Holcomb’s assistants. The result: a stone wall. All she would say was “they (the feds) don’t have to ask and they don’t have to tell” when I asked if any illegal immigrants were being placed in Indiana. I asked again and received the same words. She would not say more.

This was disturbing since any illegal immigrants being brought into Indiana would impact schools, medical care facilities, social services, safety, and ultimately the economy of the state including taxes. Given that, I believe the citizens of Indiana not only deserve to know what is going on, but have the right to know.

It appears the Governor wants to keep Indiana citizens in the dark. It is unclear why. If the Governor does not know if illegal immigrants are coming into the state, he needs to revamp his intelligence system. He ought to damned well know.

If he does know, it is time for him to tell all. Indiana citizens have the right to know who is coming into the state and where they are being placed. Period.

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?
 
Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better!   If you’ve read his book you will agree; this is a good summary.
 
PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland. Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.
 
Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – its that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.
 
I know… it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs… well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.
 
The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days – yes, FOUR DAYS – by that volcano in Iceland which has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time – EVERY DAY.
 
I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.
 
Yes, folks, Mt. Pinatubo was active for over one year – think about it.
 
Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
 
And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year. Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change scenario.
 
Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just ”Climate Change”  – you know why?
 
It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees  in the past century and these global warming bull**** artists got caught with their pants down.
 
And, just keep in mind that you might yet be stuck with an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.
 
It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.
 
But, hey, relax…give the world a hug and have a nice day!

XY and XX

In case you are wondering, there are only two genders in the human race; male and female. On the DNA level, men and women each have a full complement of genes packaged in chromosomes numbering a total of 46. The chromosomes that indicate a male are one X chromosome and one Y chromosome. In women, there are two X chromosomes and no Y chromosomes. So, men = XY and women = XX. Anything different than this is an abnormality or genetic defect.

And, let’s face it, the primary biological purpose of male and female is to produce the next generation. This is true throughout the biological world where ever males and females are found. Examples are humans, birds, fish, flowers, frogs, and on and on. Male DNA is brought together with female DNA to create what is new life. Got it. Some creatures have chromosomes different than XY and XX to indicate gender, but in humans it is XY Male and XX Female.

So, what is LGBTQ all about. One thing it is not about is XY Male and XX Female. That is fixed biology. What is left is culture and attitude, not gender biology. We have some who are XY Male thinking they want to be XX Female. They want to dress female, behave female, and compete in female sports; but they have male biology which gives them physical strength the XX female does not have. The determining factor on where one is allowed to compete in sports should be genetic; XY Male sports and XX female sports. Period.

What about sexual preferences? Here we have a real can of worms. In common terminology, there are lesbians, XX women who prefer to pleasure sexually other XX women and have nothing to do sexually with XY men. There are gays, XY men who prefer to pleasure sexually other XY men and have nothing to do sexually with XX women. Clearly, these preferences never end in the prime original purpose of male and female; production of the next generation. Their preferences are personal, but have nothing to do with biological gender identity and everything to do with sexual attitudes and sensual pleasures.

Then there are bi-sexuals: XY men and XX women who find sexual satisfaction with the opposite or same sex; both. Again, personal preferences that have nothing to do with gender and everything to do with sexual attitudes and sensual pleasures.

And transgenders, individuals who come into the world one gender, either XY or XX, but want to be the other. Again, attitude not biology. Medical science has intervened surgically and hormonally to make gender switching physically somewhat possible. Doctors can redesign the human body to some degree, but they cannot change the biological gender of XY or XX. They can only mimic to some degree the opposite gender from biological gender at birth. Every cell in the human body carries either the XY or XX gene combination. Medical science cannot change that.

Finally, there are “queers” who are really mixed up. Nothing more to say about them.

Interesting to me that there seems to be a lot of noise from the LGBTQ community about “rights”. I fully agree that ones sexual preferences should have nothing to do with one’s job qualifications, or voting rights, or anything else in society unless it infringes on the rights of someone else. When it come to competitive sports, however, genetics does make a difference. And ones sexual preferences, whether straight or otherwise, must not intrude on the work place.

As far as the military is concerned, there may be different criteria to consider when training warriors. The goals are different from general society. Preference should be to creating the most lethal fighting force, not catering to or even considering sexual preferences.

Elections and US Military

[A post from one of our favorite alternative media sites]

The top of the US Military brass was previously provided the US Intelligence Report about the US elections. They were made aware that Trump had clearly won the US Presidential Election.

That being said, the US Military is obligated to get their orders from the legitimate Commander in Chief which would be Trump. The Uniform Code of Military Justice would have to be adhered to. President Trump can command and order the Military brass to arrest all those who are complicit and have them stand in front of military tribunals.

Trump will need to contact the US Joint Chiefs of Staff directly and have this carried out. Trump does not need to wait for the Generals to act solely by themselves. He can invoke the UCMJ provision supported by the Intel Report and the military’s own election investigation.

If any of the brass disobeys a lawful order then, they will be held accountable under this UCMJ provision and appropriate military charges would be determined and carried out forthwith.

The Kokomo Dispatch

[An earlier version of this piece was posted in 2016. Points continue.}

The Kokomo Dispatch masthead existed on a print newspaper for decades. It began as a local newspaper in Kokomo, Indiana, as an enterprise and was lastly owned by the Poynter family who went on to bigger things with the St. Petersburg Times in Florida.

The Dispatch was purchased by my great grandfather, John Arthur Kautz from the Poynter family. The Dispatch name was carried as a sub-head in the Kokomo Tribune until the late 1960s when the name was dropped.

The Tribune sold in 1981 to the Thomson Newspaper group. At that point the Tribune had close to two dozen family owners, all descendants of J.A. Kautz. The family was in the situation where the death of one of the older partners would trigger a forced sale just to pay estate tax. The decision was made to sell. The market for newspapers was excellent at the time, but the sale to Thomson was not good for the paper nor for the community. The focus went from serving the community to maximizing profit. Unfortunately, this was the story for hundreds of family owned newspapers across the country.

I want to carry on the Kokomo Dispatch name which was not included as a part of the sale to Thomson. I feel it is part of my history and duty. I think the Poynters would be pleased as would J.A. Kautz since the Tribune name was passed on to others.

It is interesting to me to realize how deeply newspapers and journalism are rooted in me. Some of my earliest memories are of times going to the newspaper offices with my father. I was around newsrooms, composing rooms, and the press more times than I can imagine. I can still smell the ink and paper and still hear the rumbling of the press as it printed the thousands of copies of the paper to be delivered to doorsteps. I remember.

After the sale of the Tribune, I changed course. For years I was involved with science and the academic community. I loved that, too. I was able to make a significant contribution in evolutionary biology. I went off, too, later in other directions that hit dead ends. However, I did teach at and was the Vice Chancellor of External Relations at Indiana University Kokomo for a time. For the past 20 years, professionally I have been a certified real estate appraiser in Indiana. This has had its rewards in that I have become very familiar with about all communities in North Central Indiana and have met hundreds of very interesting and good people. My vision as a result has widened.

For years, the voices rooted within me from my decades with the Kokomo Tribune were muted. They have come alive. We are in precarious times for our country. Everyone who can should speak out. I intend to do just that.

Election Incompetence

Indiana is fortunate to be a solidly red state. In November 2020, the vote for President Donald Trump was overwhelming. Down ballot, the vote for Congressional offices, state offices, and local offices went to Republican candidates with few exceptions.

But I wonder. I wonder how aggressively Indiana state voter rolls are examined and ineligible “voters” removed? Other states have been in the news with descriptions of all sorts of issues. Judicial Watch has sued several states to require purging of ineligible names. What “voters” have been found?

Illegal aliens
Dead people
People who moved out of state
People listing non-habitable addresses
People under voting age

And then there are the huge issues with people voting in more than one state, ballots counted multiple times, phony ballots, and finally, interference from afar with the electronic voting and tabulating machines.

We in Indiana may think we are absent these issues, but are we? Have we looked?

Then there is a question of competency in the conducting of the elections on the county level. Howard County is a case in point. Before the beginning of early voting, there was a “training” session for Judges and Inspectors, the people responsible for enforcing the rules at polling places. The training session was woefully inadequate. The county clerk talked for something over 2 hours while flipping through pages of her 3” binder. The binder was filled with official forms and instructions for Judges and Inspectors.

The problem was the binders to hand to attendees were not ready. They would not be until a couple of days before voting began. The attendees never handled one piece of paper. No poll worker was given hands on training with the electronic poll books.

Then came opening day for early voting. The polling sites were set up by volunteers, the County Clerk, and the Democrat member of the County Election Board. Unfortunately, no provisions for disabled voters who could not stand at the voting booth were included in pre-planning. There were many such voters.

Then there were the problems with the devices used. Scanning did not work all the time. Hand typing became then required. The signature pad on the electronic poll book was another problem. Any scribble was fine. How is this anything close to signature matching?

There is more. Machine counts and hand counts did not match. Ballots were stored overnight in a less than secured area. Ballot pick up protocol was violated.

Finally, and maybe the most serious, was in one polling site the wife of the Democrat candidate for Treasurer came into the polling place. She and the Democrat representative on the Election Board conversed while standing inside. This action was blatantly illegal. Conversation with her, the County Clerk, and the Democrat EB representative continued even outside but inside the polling place boundary. This wife even pulled out a poll worker to talk to and give instructions. The Republican member of the county Election Board took no action.

When later several issues were called to the attention of the Republican County Chairwoman, she did nothing but complain about the communications to her. She said this was not her responsibility.

So, this small example in one county in Indiana shows this state is not free of voting problems. There are several months now until the voting in 2022. It is time to tighten down everything. Get rid of the electronic devices, go back to the paper poll books where signatures can be truly compared, require people to vote in the precinct of their residence, and count votes by hand. It worked before and it can work again.

What happened in the 2020 election can never be allowed to happen again in any state including Indiana.

The Relic

When driving by 300 North Union Street in Kokomo, Indiana, one would never know once here was one of the leading medium sized daily newspapers in the world, The Kokomo Tribune. What stands here now is a burned out relic; a building hollow and locked up but with memories of greatness. It is doubtful current owners of this newspaper will ever restore the building following a fire in early January 2021.

Once here was a newspaper that led in the development of production technology and that had visitors from all over the world to see how production was done. Here was a newspaper that had the latest in a new 48-page Goss Metro Offset press built by Rockwell. Here was a newspaper that led in the development of computer technology and photo composition in newspapers.

Here was a newspaper that frequently on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays had to make double runs of the press because the issue that day exceeded the 48 page capacity of the press. Here was a newspaper that had over 200 carriers that delivered the paper to the door step of readers each day.

Here was a newspaper that was determined to be “First in the Nation” in penetration of its metro market by the Audit Bureau of Circulations, the gold standard, for 8 of 10 years during one decade; and only second for the two remaining years. Here was a newspaper with a paid circulation of 34,000 daily and an over 95% penetration of its market. Nearly all homes in the market subscribed to and received the paper each day.

Here was a newspaper that people wanted to read and one that was trusted for truth and for comprehensive news of its community. Here was a newspaper that had a reportorial staff of about 35 to cover hard news, sports, and community features. Here was a newspaper that editorially reflected the consensus of the community with a moderately conservative political philosophy on its Editorial page, but one that strove diligently to keep opinion out of objective news reporting. Here was a newspaper that was at the heartbeat of the community.

When the Goss Metro press was first received, the Tribune building had a large wall of glass facing Union Street so people of the town could come by and see the press in operation. It was impressive. Nothing can replace the sights and sounds of a large newspaper press in operation. They loved it.

The management of the Tribune was active and recognized. The then publisher, Richard Blacklidge, was once president of the Hoosier Press Association, The Inland Daily Press Association, and finally, the American Newspaper Publishers Association. The latter was historically dominated by publishers of the large metropolitan papers of the United States. Blacklidge was also the Vice President of FIEJ, the international newspaper association.

The Editor, Dow Richardson, was a leader in the American Association of Newspaper Editors. He led the news and editorial side of the Tribune for over 50 years.

Kent Blacklidge, the son of Richard Blacklidge, was the initial inside driver of the technological changes. He led in the development of one of the first computer typesetting machines in collaboration with engineers at Delco Electronics. He wrote several computer programs for production, circulation, and accounting applications. Kent later became publisher of the Tribune when his father retired. During his years as Associate Publisher and as Publisher, he led the paper in causes that bettered the community and the environment.

With his skills, knowledge, and spirit, Richard Isham was brought on as operations manager early in the technological change period. He, with his management team, brought newspaper production to perfection. Every 24 hours a new, fresh, and full of news newspaper was pushed out the end of the press and finally to Tribune readers.

The glory days are gone. The real Tribune family of those days has scattered, retired, or died. The Kokomo Tribune is almost gone. Even before the fire, it was a skeleton of what it once was. Both circulation and content have plummeted. Now even the physical building has been shuttered and locked. The loss to the community is immeasurable.

Newspapers once numbered about 1800 family owned and independent in this country. They were the “Fourth Estate” with power and influence to provide checks and balances on government. No more. The country is worse off for it.

The Pack of Traitors

The election cycle of 2022 will be around soon enough. The Republican House of Representative members who voted to impeach President Trump should all be primaried out of office. There appears to be only one vulnerable Senator: Lisa Murkowski. She needs to go, too.

Here is the list of GOP traitors. The first are the House of Representative members that voted with all of the Socialist Democrats to impeach President Trump:

Liz Cheney – Wyoming
Anthony Gonzales – Ohio
Jamie Herra-Beutler – Washington
John Katko – New York
Adam Kinzinger- Illinois
Peter Meijer – Michigan
Dan Newhouse – Washington
Tom Rice – South Carolina
Fred Upton – Michigan
David Valadao – California

Get them out of the House!!

And here are the GOP Senators that voted with all of the Socialist Democrat Senators to convict President Trump:

Richard Burr – North Carolina
Lisa Murkowski – Alaska
Bill Cassidy – Louisiana
Susan Collins – Maine
Mitt Romney – Utah
Ben Sasse – Nebraska
Patrick Toomey – Pennsysvania

Unfortunately, only Murkowski is up for re-election on 2022.

MAGA loyalists must not let up. They must continue to oppose the destructive policies proposed by the Socialist Democrats and the actions of Criminal Joe Biden and Commie Kamala Harris. They all know they won the November election through fraud and a whole host of criminal actions with massive help from countries outside of the USA. It must stop.

On Covid-19

Ever wonder about the Covid-19 vaccines?

Now I get it, but still have questions. It goes like this. Traditional vaccines involve introducing to the body a degraded or debilitated version of the disease causing antigen (virus or germ). The degraded version (not strong enough to cause the disease full blown) was just enough to trigger our immune system to construct antibodies which attach to the disease particle identifying it as disease. Then the warrior cells tke over and wipe out the disease particle(s). There are also memory cells that are on alert for future infections. First sign … arms full alert and disease stopped in its tracks. No waiting for the immune system to crank up. The immune system is ready for the enemy.

Now along comes Covid-19, a virus causing disease. Science uses a completely different approach to getting the human immune system on alert and ready to fight from the onset. It does not use a degraded or debilitated virus particle to alert our immune system. Rather it has found a way to get our own cellular genetic system to manufacture a particle (protein) similar to one found on the stalk of the capsule that encloses the actual C-19 virus (RNA). The presence of that particle is enough to trigger an immune response. The cells that create antibodies are triggered into action and create the antibodies needed. The rest of the immune system action is as usual for an immune response. Hopefully, memory cells will maintain alert status, the that length of that “memory” is currently unknown.

What is being injected into muscle tissue (the vaccine) is the mRNA (messenger RNA) of the stalk protein needed to trigger a response. The vaccines must be kept at really cold temperatures or this mRNA degrades (denatures). When injected, Dendrite cells take it in. In the Dendrite cell the mRNA connects with Ribosomes (the protein factory) which uses the mRNA as a template to create the wanted stalk protein.

Production is triggered. When the product (the stalk protein) is released into the body, our body identifies it as “enemy” so cranks up the immune response and creates antibodies against it. On the system goes. Once a disease agent is tagged with an antibody, other “warrior” cells literally destroy it.

The main question I have is who regulates this system never used before for a vaccine. Once the Dendrite cells begin cranking out the protein associated with the disease, what regulates it and when does it stop? Don’t know the answer to this yet. Will the mRNA be reverse incorporated into our DNA? Will it stay active forever cranking our “disease” particles causing perpetual immune response? What happens when a similar but different variant of a virus comes along? Massive response? Who knows. Maybe scientists know all these answers, but from all indications this is a road not traveled before for a vaccine. I read mixed reports. There are medical professionals and biological scientists on both sides ….. all is well and all is not well with the vaccines.

I personally believe big Pharma prefers vaccine development rather than development of effective, perhaps inexpensive, therapeutics. And as time goes on, the medical community seems to be getting better at treatment. Death rates have fallen to very low lows.

So, get the vaccine or not. You have to make that choice.

Thank you, President Trump

[From an anonymous heartfelt author; speaks for many]

My days on earth are numbered, but before I fade away, there is something important I need to say. It may not be important to anyone else; but it’s important to me.

Win or lose, President Trump, I just want to say thank you for the last four years. Thank you for making it cool to be an American again.

Thank you for showing us that we don’t need to be under China’s thumb economically anymore or any other way.

Thank you for one of the strongest economies we’ve ever experienced in my lifetime.

Thank you for all you have done for the minority communities and the outstanding decrease in the unemployment rate for all Americans.

Thank you for the record employment for Americans regardless of race or gender.

Thank you for making us feel good to love our country and to be a patriot again.

Thank you for supporting our Nation’s flag and the men and women who fought for the freedom that stands behind that flag.

Thank you for supporting our nation’s law enforcement organizations, and understanding how difficult their job really is.

Thank you for quelling the flood of illegal immigration and bringing to justice the thousands of criminals that flood brought upon us.

Thank you for giving corporations a reason to come back to America to make our own products and put Americans back to work.

Thank you for bringing our troops home from endless deployments that presented us with little more than body bags and for your commitment to strengthen our military.

Thank you for Operation Warp Speed and keeping your promise to bring the Covid 19 vaccine to us in less than a year.

Thank you for your never-ending attempts at bringing peace to the Middle East and your support for Israel.

Thank you for your Tax relief and for our energy independence. Most of all though…..

Thank you for taking a damn rotten job that you never had to take!

Thank you for caring enough for this country to want to try and make a difference.

Thank you for showing America how little Career Politicians actually work for their constituents.

Thank you for showing us how much those politicians despise you for showing America how easy it is to build a great nation, rather than rape her to line their own pockets and stock portfolios.

Thank you for allowing us to experience a President that wasn’t a life long politician, but a life long American.

Thank you, MR. PRESIDENT … YOU DID YOUR BEST!
