70% Of Pinellas County Residents Want Term Limits for County Commission
Listen in to the Pinellas County Commission Meeting as two career tax milkers defend ignoring the will of the people so they can keep milking your taxpayer money. Here's a letter I wrote to them on the subject : Direction of Inquiry Commissioner Janet C. Long - District 1 Commissioner Pat Gerard - District 2 Commissioner Charlie Justice - District 3 (2021 Vice Chair) Commissioner Dave Eggers - District 4 (2021 Chair) Commissioner Karen Williams Seel - District 5 Commissioner Kathleen Peters - District 6 Commissioner René Flowers - District 7 Subject:  Please Stop Embarrassing Pinellas County Message: am writing to you on behalf of an estimated 80,000 Pinellas County Residents that our various community activists groups represent, by asking you to temper the absurdity of your comments. There are videos now floating around regarding mostly Janet Long, but one also of Pat Gerard, demonstrating ignorance of the temperature of the voters and belittling those of what is likely a majority of Pinellas County Residents in favor of term limits. Our Pinellas County Commission is unfortunately a laughing stock and meme fodder simply based on the absurdity of your own sense of self importance. The one and only time recently when term limits was put for a vote, an overwhelming percentage in excess of 70% of voters expressed that the ridiculousness of Ken Welch and Karen Seel milking the taxpayers for decades and millions of dollars should be limited to two or three terms maximum. For Janet Long to infer that her election, as well as Justice's, when they won by a handful of votes in a county where there are 33,000 votes in question from that same election demonstrates an ideological blindness that alone is probably grounds for malfeasance and recall. If the populace summons the ire that would be appropriate for our own Marie Antoinettes, if given the chance today the vote to recall Long, Justice and Gerard would probably go with the same margins the last term limit vote went in Pinellas County. It's probable that at least two of our sitting county commissioners were not duly elected. The minimum expected of you while you sit in our seats, soaking up our tax dollars, is that you respect the will of the people. That would include not pretending the majority of Pinellas County Residents are not in favor of term limits when in fact history shows that nearly eight out of every ten residents think Karen Seel should have been out of a job over a decade ago, had she and other ideologues not found a sympathetic judge to overturn the overwhelming popular vote. Commissioners Justice and Long, not only were you NOT elected with a mandate, it's debatable whether or not you were even elected at all. There's an effort happening right now to audit the 2020 election, and if that were to happen fully it's likely you'd be retired before we have the chance to recall you or vote again. If the vote were held today, I can almost assure you the outcome would be the will of the people and a few of you would be unseated. If you would like a presentation on the 2020 canvassing efforts under way in Pinellas County, let me know and I can have a representative of Defend Florida attend your upcoming meeting and let you know the reality of what is being certified via. affidavit in Pinellas County regarding the validity of the 2020 election. Since Julie Marcus won't do her job, there's a whole team of volunteers in Florida that are doing it for her. Govern accordingly.

Pinellas County, Florida Election Integrity. Was the 2020 Election Stolen?
There's a group of activists outside of the Pinellas GOP that are looking hard at election integrity in Pinellas County, which was deemed a swing county for the national election in 2020 with similar demographics for the 2022 and 2024 elections.  Was the 2020 election stolen, as some suggest?  And why isn't the Pinellas County GOP doing more to resolve questions and issues with regard to voter integrity in the 2020 election.  Lets talk about it.   Featuring Cathi Chamberlain aka The Deplorable Author Rules for Deplorables: A Primer for Fighting Radical Socialism www.RulesforDeplorablesBook.com https://thedeplorablereport.com Talk show producer and on-air talent "Voice of a Nation" | America Out Loud Talk Radio RADIO TALK: https://americaoutloud.com/the-voice-of-a-nation/ BLOGS: https://americaoutloud.com/author/cathi-chamberlain The Pirate Podcast is a member of the Tidings Media Podcast Network (www.Tidings.News)

Breaking News on Pinellas County School Board

Is it FAKE SCIENCE or is it a CULT? The Pirate Podcast examines the current Church of CovidStan
We're going to take a detailed look at the church of CovidStan.  Is it science, or is it a cult?  When local social media pages pretend to provide COVID19 Information using doctors and mask fetish adherents, often they display the majority of qualities featured in a cult. Do they cross over at a minimum to misinformation?  Are they more harmful than helpful?  Lets look at the characteristics of a cult and see if we can better understand what we may be dealing with.  Real science uses the scientific method, but what is being promoted as blindly trusting "science" today has little resemblance to what science really is, and moreso represents blind alliegance to cult-like characters at the local, state and national level that put ideology over data in the interest of harnessing a harvest field of useful idiots towards a grander societal shift.   This excerpt written by Janja Lalich and Michael D. Langone is from: Take Back Your Life: Recovering from Cults and Abusive Relationships (Bay Tree Publishing, 2006). You can buy the book on Amazon.   The group displays an excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader, and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law. Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished. Mind-altering practices (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, or debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s). The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (e.g., members must get permission to date, change jobs, or marry—or leaders prescribe what to wear, where to live, whether to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth). The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s), and its members (e.g., the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar—or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity). The group has a polarized, us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society. The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders, or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations). The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (e.g., lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities). The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and control members. Often this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion. Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group. The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members. The group is preoccupied with making money. Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities. Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members. The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave—or even consider leaving—the group. You can apply this to identity politics, radical liberal agendas for schools, academia, the media, planned parenthood radicalism, the current church of Faucian "science" and many other progressive movements.

►►Critical Race Theory is IN Pinellas County Schools◄◄
Documentation, discovered by researchers, have uncovered materials that indicate that Critical Race Theory (CRT), masquerading as Culturally Relevant Teaching (CRT) is has not only arrived already into local classrooms, but is being promoted and encouraged throughout Pinellas County Schools.  On June 8th, Pinellas County School Board quietly approved through their consent agenda a CRT Czar to champion equity initiatives for implementation of their CRT curriculum.  It will be trained during a special teacher training workshop this summer, and then incentivised during the 2021/2022 school year with published CRT objectives and invecentives for staff and administration.  We're in possession of the materials, and in the process of relaying them to the State of Florida as the materials and implementation are seemingly at odds with Florida’s state Board of Education ban of “critical race theory” from public school classrooms Thursday, adopting new rules it said would shield schoolchildren from curricula that could “distort historical events.” The new rules say classroom instruction “must be factual and objective, and may not suppress or distort significant historical events.” It goes on to mention the Holocaust, slavery and the Civil War, as well as the civil rights movement and the contributions of Blacks, Hispanics and women to the country. But it also makes specific mention of “theories that distort historical events” that are inconsistent with board policy, including any teaching that denies the Holocaust or espouses critical race theory, which the new rules say asserts “that racism is not merely the product of prejudice, but that racism is embedded in American society and its legal systems in order to uphold the supremacy of white persons.” The new rules also forbids use of the 1619 Project, a classroom program spawned by a New York Times project that focuses on teaching about slavery and African American history. The project’s name refers to the year popularly believed to be when slaves were first brought to colonial America.

►►PINELLAS County Needs Governor Ron DeSantis To Enforce His EO◄◄
Absolute power corrupts absolutely. They are acting unlawfully so the voters should not be forced with a civil remedy for criminal actions. They are violating the law at the Pinellas County School System.  Governor Ron DeSantis, the Pinellas County School Board, Superintendent Dr. Grego, and School Board Attorney David Koperski are IGNORING your executive orders.  Is that how you will govern as president? You in charge of enforcing state law where are the local governments are violating state law. It’s not up to the people to enforce DeSantis executive orders. That’s not a recall situation. Should They be recalled? Yes. But there should be immediate state level intervention where local governments are using power to harm people and violating state executive orders. In so much is people couldn’t simply vote Hitler out of office, it’s not a reasonable expectation that we spend 90 days, thousands of hours, and thousands of dollars to get the local government to comply with state orders. They need to comply, or the state needs to intercede.  That's YOUR JOB, Governor DeSantis.

Florida Liberation Day, May 3 2021 with Thanks to Governor Ron DeSantis
Never forget the names of the Pinellas county commissioners and the Pinellas county school board members that forced you and your children into wearing masks. As I see pictures of private events like footloose style junior and senior proms, never forget the names of the Pinellas County commissioners and Pinellas county school board members that forced things underground. Help us get rid of them all starting either with the recalls or with the 2022 elections. Never forget. Never forget their names.. Never forget the people that closed our beaches. Never forget the people that deemed our neighbors businesses unessential.. Never forget the names of the Pinellas county commissioners that voted for a tax increase during the pandemic.. Only Kathryn Peters voted against the property tax increase.  Never forget.  Never forget that while they were forcing these things on our community, they voted to abdicate their financial responsibility and give an unlimited checkbook to an unelected bureaucratic county administrator.  Never forget that children in the Pinellas County school system have worn a mask for 900 hours, and they laughed when they talked about extending that by 200 more hours to get through the rest of the school year. Never forget they wanted their audio of their meeting to be withheld from you and we had to send in a secret camera to get it.  Never forget their names.  Never forget the window of time we are in.  We have to fix this. We have to remedy this. We have to correct this for future generations. We have to get these people out of office.

Finally people are rising up in Pinellas County. Dave opens up the phone lines, and within the first hour over a dozen people called to leave a message for the Pinellas County Board of Commissioners. In the next segment, Dave talks about the concept of "useful idiots" and how they play a role in the spreading of propaganda. Then, we unpack the $175,000,000 that Pinellas County Commission has spent in CARES money, and the role that plays into keeping the pandemic alive despite what the science dictates.  Is it ideological, or scientific?  We report, you decide.

The Case Against Pinellas County
Why does the Pinellas County Commission give you 3 minutes to speak, but then gives unelected bureaucrats Barry Burton and Uylee Choe unlimited response time?  Because if you actually were able to HEAR the facts, you might gain an understanding that would cause you, the taxpayers, to cut off the money stream to their continuance of the "pandemic" a year after they started pulling cash from the public trough for their "State of Emergency." Listen in as data researcher Jeff J from Tampa Bay DESTROYS the case against Barry Burton, Uylee Choe, and the commissioners of Pinellas County who distain you, call you liars, and say your comments are laughable.  In 45 minutes, you're not only going to hear why Pinellas County must end the mask mandate and State of Emergency, but this should be a clarion call to taxpayers from each side of the political spectrum who value honesty, integrity and morality to run these people out of our town at the next election cycle.  Never forget what they did to our kids, our families, and our businesses.

Then They Came for Me (And Critical Race Theory)
What can we learn from Todd Beamer and his famous "Let's Roll" action on 9-11? We talk Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Israeli passengers standing together in solidarity, and a famous quote from Martin Niemöller "First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
