Again We Ask – Who Is Running This Runaway Train Called “The Village”?

 

 



What happens when you, we, us promote false virtue in our words and actions?

Things like Critical Theory “happen”.

How about this headline:

Oakland’s Progressive Mayor will exclude WHITE families living in POVERTY from $500 checks.

From the beginning of time fools have perched upon some of the highest thrones man has had to offer.

Proving that being elected does not make you any smarter. These types even make it into high places within the likes of education, governance, law enforcement and the media. The “News” included.

They have been able to do so because of the crazy ideas that have filled the collective conscience of our world from time to time. Guess what, this is one of those times.

Good thing for humans that up until present, we have proven that survival of the fittest is generally true.

Then there are those of course that jump into the boat with the fools and it goes over the edge with them in it, along with the truthful thinking.

Even if you don’t “get in the boat”, the damage these soon to be replaced self-proclaimed salvations of mankind cause are felt by you and I. We are generally the ones on shore that have to deal with their childish and foolish decisions that leave outcome for the rest of us to deal with.

Seriously, what happens when we change our “collective soul” away from the truth?

When we let the ideas of critical theory, social justice, sustainable development, equity and the like be our compass, well, then we will walk in the direction those ideas point too.

In that process it allows for under qualified people to take the reins simply because of their “Progressive Social Score” that is determined by intersectionality.

When we allow for the hollow virtue signaling like we have seen to drive our perspective as a people, it distorts our view of the Truth. When we allow this type of thinking we can easily find ourselves in a position that the “under qualified” with no skill, ability or experience can take charge.

They hold the rudder and run the engine that guide our day to day. The longer they are there the sooner we begin to get lost as a people and breakdown as a community.

We begin making excuses for them and their outcomes. We look to blame others for their short comings while we pay for their actions. Nature being what she is, we are beginning to run out of a required supply of intelligence and the fuel to move us. Our social compass is broken as a “people” and we all suffer because of it.

All of the while there are those that are promising you that it is ok that they know very little, because they have an expert to listen to and tell them what to do. As an example, the Mayor of Indiantown, Janet Hernandez has made this assumption more than once. She actually believes it.

When a person is “allowed” to rise to the top of the chain because of Social Justices stigmas, diversity of race, equity instead of equality, then you are promoting those to positions of power without consideration of foundational skill to achieve the post; over those that have the skill but the wrong Social Justice pedigree.

Well, if everyone else believes the ideas then they must be acceptable, right? Wrong.

Social Justice and Sustainable efforts have enabled minority to rise in the leadership hierarchy without any need for merit.

The Boeing 737 Max airplane suffered two fatal accidents. To what extent were the accidents attributable to design work that had been done in low-cost, low work-ethic jurisdictions? Did those in leadership positions discuss the possibility of such risks, or was this deemed too politically incorrect?

To what extent were forest fires in California or the recent power outages in Texas a result of progressive policy, where people have been elevated to positions of authority despite a lack of competence? We will never know the specifics, for people in the West no longer say anything that might be seen as bigoted. Those who dare say something get booted out. Welcome to the cancel culture.

Errors accumulate with no one to challenge them.

The Social Governance concepts pursued in Indiantown are essentially copying the globalist & internationalists model of social change, which is anti-meritocratic and will destroy institutions, the heritage and future of Indiantown

Is it still acceptable to allow this kind of thinking even if the actions required to achieve the outcome are false?

Unfortunately, for most, yes. When the most vocal proclaim mantra, and virtue signal at the same time we seem to bite. Few are willing to voice disagreement because they do not like conflict.

In the mean time you watch what you thought were reasonably sane people begin to justify and hold up nonsense for the virtuous posture.

Think of it this way.

When you elect a person to a position of authority because of their gender or their race over their qualifications, then you are allowing a system without a foundation of merit to grow.

When you elect people that do not have any financial skin in the game you diminish your outcomes as a citizen. Worse yet, when you elect people that cannot even achieve an income that allows for their housing without aide from the tax payer, then you have really done some virtue signaling.

When you elect a person because they are “your people” then you again diminish the merit of the level of skill and thus the outcome that ensues.

This should be a good indication of what we mean.

When you hear someone elected tell you that they are going to vote to raise the amount of money it costs to build a house by 25% overall because it is the responsible thing for government to do, then you know you have elected a Social Justice scorecard instead of an American with skills.

You can verify that by noting they feel it is a waste of Tax Payer Money to hold a 4th of July Celebration for the “PEOPLE” of the Village. All the while flushing your dollars down the drain with unnecessary bureaucratic feel-good BS and consultants to “tell them what to think”.

Then in the next breath they promote a non-existent social justice warriors’ holiday over an American Holiday. Like Juneteenth over the 4th – indigenous people’s day instead of Columbus Day. You get the idea. America is somehow not good enough for them.

When you hear a sitting Mayor proclaim that a candidate’s experience for an advisory Board is not required, because they are a minority and they can learn from the “experts”, that should tip you off.

Then in the next breath, they vote for a person to be added to a community board for the sake of Equity, not Equality. You should know then they are dangerous.

If equality was truly the virtue then the other person under consideration for the advisory board seat, that has credential, a business and experience in the arena of the Boards focus would have been voted on to the Board.

Instead of voting for a person that has no depth of field and their sole qualification is that they are brown, well you tell me, is that American? NO.

When you force decisions to be made on race you are racist. Simply because when you are racist it is required to make consideration of one over another based-on skin color.

When you choose a person by gender for a role instead of qualification you weaken the process and the outcomes as well. You are a sexist and a bigot if you think in this manner, then act on it.

The snowflakes scream of Social Justice, Progressive Liberty and Equity are just getting started by these self-promoting progressive officials that openly admit they are clueless and need experts to be their source of ideas and knowledge.

The brazenness of their lies would take your breath away if we weren’t becoming so inured to them through their omnipresence.

For the moment, at least, progressives are unchained, unrepentant and uninterested in conversation.

They are also in charge.

This is the simple truth.

Most people do not like change or conflict.

But we do not like destitution and having our freedoms trampled even more.

If we continue along this sick twisted path of Social Justice and Diversity for the sake of Diversity then we will fail as a people as sure as there is a real truth.

Wisdom is not given to a man it is earned, and without doing he will not learn.

When he has not done then he is lacking experience, without experience he has earned nothing.

Which in the end leaves him lacking the wisdom of those that have done and do know from their experience.

This is exactly the position some elected politicos find themselves in. The same ones that in their words openly proclaim their lack of knowledge. The same people that you elected to represent you and be your voice.

The same people that openly rely on experts for their ideas because they do not have the experience, knowledge or wisdom to do it themselves.

So, if several on an elected Council have this need for the experts to tell them everything, it is really the experts that are driving this train then. Not you.

In the least, you would think that the pool of knowledge the experts drink from should be considered by the Council member. Instead, they place the “expert” on water and see them walking.

If the knowledge that is offered from “experts” comes from a place of deep toxicity, then one has to discern this fact for themselves. When however, your elected do not question but “take to the bit” like our own Tony Z has expressed, then you have a mindless zombie pack following the will and direction of the “expert”.

The people of the Village should demand that their Council of elected begin looking for an “expert” with American ideas and principles. Unlike the International and Globalist approach being taken by Howard Brown. Seems like a good place to start. Especially if we are going to rely on the “Expert” to tell us what to do. Unless of course you are a Council member and think that the Socialist Progressive economic and social justice path is the way to go.

Again, we ask, who is running this Village?

This is a real problem not only for Indiantown but the entire County.

As extreme Globalist Progressive politicians and experts are given control over millions of tax dollars, they will use it to bolster their camp. In your backyard. In under three years of existence a sleepy six thousand in population little berg has spent over $20 million in tax payer money. They have also committed themselves into deep long-term debt and grant obligations that will cost tens of millions more in the near future.

Scary really, because they could just flip a coin to make a decision and you would be in the same place either way. Screwed.

Our Money & The Lack Of It

“Money often costs too much.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson



As you know Some of the theme here at TAM is “gritty” sometimes.

We can ride the edge of the side that no one wants to see with some topics.

We dare admit from time-to-time what others know but hide from as well.

One thing we have always done though is to be able to build our position on a common foundation of standard and principle rooted in Natural Law. We have placed our ideas in truth.

Since we have been placing our ideas into the public square for discussion and consideration there has been a diverse response. Sometimes to the delight of many and then to the consternation of some at other times. We just refuse to go over the edge with the crowd.

That being what it is, we would like to enter into a place that hopefully we can again find common ground outside of race or political party.

Can you remember the last time you ever saw the Government workforce sector shrink or get paid less, with your “money”?

That is where we will begin. This discussion centers around money.

The root of all evil as the cliché extols.

Money has become a problem. To broaden that statement let’s look at a few facts from recent months.

Here is a good one for you, let’s call it fact number one: “We the People are Broke”.

We are “broke” in more ways than one, but we want to focus on the monetary aspect of this idea for discussions sake. Let’s look at last February’s retail consumer spending numbers that surprised everyone when they dropped from the month before. Of course, America received their stimulus check in January so retail sales boomed then.

The February number is not a good sign. It shows that without a boost in our personal bank account we do not have the money to buy all the crap China needs us too.

When we couple that with the fact that 27% of ALL American Income is being derived at the present from the Federal Government. It kind of takes a new light doesn’t it. The money is a God send for many and curse for us all. As good as it might seem at first glance, creating money “out of thin air” doesn’t bring prosperity.

We have seen this type of massive money printing in the past and it did not end well then either. It ended with an explosion overnight of hyper inflation sending a loaf of bread to what would be in American money 100’s of thousands of dollars.

Currently there is a hidden 9% core inflation build up taking place in the raw materials sector. Raw materials are used to produce the crap you and I buy. Core food cost inflation is setting in as well.

Of course, I am not telling anybody anything they do not already know. You are feeling the pinch when you shop. It is not your imagination. The volume of a bag of chips or a bottle of your favorite soda continues to get smaller and the price you are paying for it keeps going up. Your money is stretching thinner and thinner.

Gas prices are up to almost $3 a gallon. Eggs are getting more expensive. So is milk, bread, bacon, beer and every other thing you need or dare I say want. Problem is, if your lucky enough to have a way to earn an income from work, your pay is not keeping up with the inflation and the rising prices for the basics. Unemployment is still running in historic high ranges and the pressure of millions of newly arrived “migrants” will add additional pressure to the work force.

Mandatory minimum wage increase will invariably force businesses to either over inflate the cost of their product, that you and I pay for. Or they will simply lay off work force and modernize to permanently eliminate the jobs. Look at SAMS, Walmart, Amazon, Ford and on and on and on.

Less than 40% of Americans have $500 put back in savings for a rainy day. Significantly far fewer have $1000.00 in the bank.

Housing costs are going through the roof with transitory pressures from people evacuating the socialist States to our North and West.

One thousand new Floridians, a day. Now we will be coveting for the same slice of the pie as others flock here to the great State of Florida.

Lumber prices are at all time highs and the cost to build a house to meet inventory demand is going to price the average Floridian out of the market. We have been warning about this trend with Booker Park, Banner Lakes, Rio and Golden Gate. See, people with money will buy the homes there. Then the people that are living there will need to find a place to live. Won’t be in the same place they just packed up from either. The inflationary pressure actually will have an impact on the potential for gentrifying portions of this County.

The place in the world that was America when I was a boy growing up in Illinois was not dissimilar to what we are entering into now. The 1970’s were a time of great economic upheaval and inflation. We were a family of six then. My Father working two jobs to make sure there was food, milk and a new something for Mom every once in a while. We had an advantage then. We were a traditional American Family. We had a Father that worked. A mother that baby sat to make money and stay with the kids to make sure we did not end up in more trouble than we did. We had each other.

When you look at the single parent family rates among our neighbors younger in year it is scary. If it is near impossible for a two-parent home, the stress for a single parent is incredible.

Day Care costs and Medical cost continue to increase as well. Even with the big government promises of less expensive and open to all. Government is making it worse. We need to look to local Churches and Civic Groups to once again begin organizing a true citizen safety net. Because the Government is not a net and is not safe.

Look, let’s face it. We cannot expect the United States to continue printing money so we can have our Netflix and rims. It will run out of value in the near term.

You see, it used to be that the people that paid taxes were the ones that had their money go out to those who were in need. Neighbor helping neighbor, sort of. Then those dollars dried up and they asked for more and more and more until well, there is no more. We have begun just printing it into existence.

All sorts of extravagant promises could be made back when there were 10 workers paying taxes to support each retiree/state dependent. Now that we’re down to less than 2 full-time workers for each retiree/state dependent, the promises are impossible to keep, with the one exception of printing the trillions of dollars that were anticipated to be paid in taxes–that is, creating near-infinite sums of funny-money out of thin air and hoping the rest of the world will continue to accept it. History doesn’t have any examples of that working, but hey, we’re special and this time it’s different.

A massive devaluation is just around the corner. There are more people with a need for a money bump from Uncle Sam than there are working people that can be taxed to give to the big pot.

So where does the money come from? They print it making the pie that much larger and your slice continues to shrink as the pie gets larger and larger.

The separation of the have and the have not’s is about to do away with those in the middle. If ever there was a time for people to see the need for each other, this is it.

If anyone thinks for a minute that the Grant Machine and river of free money is not going to dry up and blow away, you my good friend will be one of the first to suffer the hardest. If it is your local or County Government that is still playing spend other people’s money then you better tell them to stop it. The end to this current American Chapter we are all living in draws closer to her end. A dramatically new one will soon begin. The starting place for it is not Honey and Sunshine either.

Prepare now for your tomorrow. It will be here whether you are ready for it or not.

Just a thought, but removing the blindfold might be a good idea here. The edge is crumbling and the bottom is a long way down. More to follow … Standby

Who and What Killed George Floyd?


George Floyd was not choked to death. He was not asphyxiated. He was not killed by Chauvin’s knee on the side of his neck. An autopsy showed Floyd’s neck muscles were not even bruised.

PART TWO

OF A TWO PART SPECIAL




Fire Rescue

Welcome to the promised and now delivered part two of Who is Running Indiantown?

We are going to take a look this time at Fire Rescue and draw some tighter stitches to help sew a seam. That way the Emperor can get some clothes that are made from the finest that global standards and practices can provide.

As a frame of reference for you the reader or viewer depending upon how you are receiving this message, the points I am about to make are not just made-up ideas that are being pulled out of a planner’s manual developed from places like Sri Lanka and Mozambique and the United Nations.

The research and knowledge on Global influence in American Culture and Governance is more than talking points for me.  I have done radio interviews over the span of several years with some of the biggest names in the in the area of globalism. I have researched, studied and have documented the same. I have written a book on the subject as well. I have served at a State and National level politically and have been involved in the in the body politics for a very long time.

The blessings of education, research, travel, life learning and diverse experience have allowed a certain amount of wisdom to manifest in what at least used to be called, wisdom, character and knowledge. Almost like an expert. hmmm

As an Editor here at TAM I want to assure you we do our best to speak truth to reality on matters of globalist agendas and their local political influence in OUR lives. The “Globalist Leftist Way” is not the only way you know. Especially if you are an American.

That being said, we recognize at TAM that we are reaching a very large audience. We understand that we are also having impact in OUR world. Our effort will remain in truth and we will use the words and ideas of those titles and matters we discuss to make our points.

<<Part One of this story is here>>

With that said. Let’s cut to the chase and talk Fire Rescue in the Village of Indiantown.

In reading Friends and Neighbors of Martin County’s quick take on fire rescue it seems like a good place to start. We agree on with what Tom has stated and think that each Council person should answer some questions surrounding their efforts.

Here is a quote from the latest article from Tom.

“I began by asking questions that individual council members should answer. The first question was whether the village would be providing a better level of service than existing. I do not see how that is possible given what was presented. No one has claimed that they are receiving inferior service that needs to be better. So, then this cannot be the reason to proceed.”

Another couple of other important details are the E-mail from Taryn the County Administrator.

Again Quoting – This time from Taryn:

“Howard – I was sent the presentation that was presented to your Council on Saturday on Fire Rescue and options for service. I am not sure why you continue to provide inflated numbers to your Council on what the County collects via ad valorem taxes from the taxable values in Indiantown. It is roughly 5.3M not the 5.9M that your consultant is reflecting in his presentation. Could you please use factual numbers instead of inflated ones? Thank You – Taryn G. Kryzda – County Administrator McBOCC”

 

Then there is the letter sent from Janet Hernandez to the Chair of the McBOCC, Stacey Heatherington.

(Letter To McBOCC Chair re- EMS)

In that letter Janet states and I quote

“Over the past year, The Village has worked with the Center for Public Safety Management (“CPSM”), a public safety consulting firm affiliated with the ICMA, to advise the Village in evaluating its options.”

Where have we heard those four magic little letters before ICMA? I wonder.

When we say that Howard has his own agenda and it is an International Globalist Progressive Leftist Radical one this is another step in the direction of how we get there. It is another stitch in the cloth that makes their clothes.

Let’s stay with that theme of acronyms and globalism for a minute. Because this brings us to the financial portion of this equation. The next three letters we need to examine are the letter E – The letter S and the letter G.

  • Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria are an increasingly popular way for investors to evaluate companies in which they might want to invest.
  • Many mutual funds, brokerage firms, and robo-advisors now offer products that employ ESG criteria.
  • ESG criteria can also help investors avoid companies that might pose a greater financial risk due to their environmental or other practices.

In short, a company’s ESG score that does not align with the Progressive Green, Social, Racial and Environmental Mandates will receive a bad score. What was the number one move on the plate of the current US Government? (Keystone) I think if I remember right, oil bad – need clean energy. Coal bad need clean energy.

The ESG score will be coming for you and I and sit right next to and soon replace your credit score. Your Social Justice score will mean as much as your credit worthiness.

So why are we bringing this up. Well, Indiantown already has lost one power generation facility due to the ridiculous executive orders of Barrack Hussein Obama. The new administrations mandates will have yet unforeseen consequences on the energy sector as a whole. In large part of which provides 85% of the funny money the Council and Howard are spending.

Is the picture beginning to come into focus yet? Let’s go a step further. As the ESG mania and plain old financial hurdles continue to mount, not only will FPL need to begin to look towards consolidation and new mandatory Green efforts, it has every potential of changing the landscape of Indiantown. The local FPL plant is but one small piece in the energy sector. Yet it is the largest piece for the Village.

This is the reason a lot of people felt that the formula used for considering the incorporation in the first place should never have been allowed. It actually required Legislative allowance and exemption from not meeting statutory requirement.

That brings me back to life experience. An easy cliché we could use I suppose is not to put all of your eggs in one basket. Having founded, built and sold two very successful businesses in Martin County I can tell you that having a diverse revenue stream is a requirement for survival in economic down turns. While other business failed during the last down turn, we flourished.

There are three Council Members that do not own any real property. There is at least one, potentially more Council members that live in tax payer subsidized housing. No strikes against them. But please do not expect us to sit and listen to fables and tales from the mouths of Babes and tax payer dependent lifestyles. There are no UNICORNS.

The rush to consideration on this maneuver is astounding. A field trip and a hurried planning session for sunshine cover and BAM.

Does everyone realize that once the Village is on the hook for this there will need to be new salaries? New vehicles. Increased Benefits for them. More Budget pressure. More personal Kingdoms.

We have seen this play out for the past two decades with the McBOCC and fire rescue as well as some memorable battles with Bob Crowder over the years. Their budgets never shrink. The perceived needs get bigger and the requirement for revenue does too.

So where does the money come from. YOU. If you are a property owner you will be assessed when the time comes for the need for more.

If you rent from a property owner, they will pass it on to you the renter.

They can raise sales taxes in the Village.

They can assess a municipal Golf Tax to every round.

This idea of Fire Rescue should be tabled. If for no other reason that to asses the near future needs for the Water Treatment Facility. Estimates range from 12 to 16 MILLION in needed upgrade and repair in the next two years. Just to get properly operational. Did you hear any of that when the discussion about buying it was taking place? Neither did we and that is our point.

What will be required when they Unionize? What will be required for dispatch? What will be required to pay Martin when they have to cover because you are busy? What if FPL says that they have had enough of your gamesmanship and kingdom building and get cold feet, will they annex out? Will FPL be forced to scale back or shift operations outside of the Village because of Global and National financial and social justice noise? Thus reducing their foot print and the size of the 85% percent of income for the spend happy Council.

So back to Tom’s original question. Who says that what we have that is working needs to be changed?

To simply grab a major financial liability for the sake of saying it is mine while not gaining a benefit offset is ego driven. It is not strategic in the least.

Leave the burden on the County. This Village has enough on its plate.

When you can begin to address the real day to day needs that lack for the citizens then maybe we should be having this conversation. You were elected to better the life of the people in the Village by fixing that which is broke first.

It is OK to relinquish yourself to the fact that no matter how NEATO you think it is, you are not ready yet. Negotiate for what you can get now and set a stage for future effort. The large pool known as Grants will be under extreme pressure as on-going inflationary threats and far left financial and environmental policy drive the economy.

So, who is in charge of Indiantown? All roads lead back to Howard – The ICMA – YEO and groups that are out in the open with what they advocate and implement. If you really think that this is all going to end well for you without you involving yourself and figuring out who is on your side and who is not, then you are in for a rude awakening.

I have a few questions for the multi generation families here in Indiantown. The ones with lineage. Are you OK with the Heritage and Pioneer spirit that is Indiantown being left to the hands of globalist progressives? Do they represent the American Spirit that built this Village? Do they represent you?

This is a serious topic that deserves serious discussion. We welcome your feedback and want to hear from you. Drop us a line or a comment on the story link. And as always be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on TalkAboutMartin.com.

It is Your Heritage – ENGAGE

Another Meeting

Another Train Wreck



The lack of consistency of principle is mind boggling when you observe people like Antony Dowling and Janet Hernandez drone on about the virtue of their effort. Especially when you hear the tone taken to address criticism and media reporting on them. Not just TAM but several other media outlets that have seen the same warning signs and flashing red lights we have at TAM.

You can hear their own words on the Village website. We are not making it up. They say it. We just talk about it. Their ideas, words and actions.

But before we get there, we want to tell you about another story we are working on at TAM. It seems that a certain property in town that is rumored to be developed in the near future has Indian Burial Mounds on it. That’s right, TAM has spoken with two lifelong members of the Indiantown community who say that they witnessed the burial of an Indian woman on the property in the near past.

We will be bringing you more about that as we tighten up the FACTS surrounding the matter. Standby   More to come.

Before everyone starts blasting us again for having these discussions know that we are reporting on the actions and words of the people you elected to try and run this clown show called the Village. It is their Words and their votes. We report – you decide.

According to Antony and a council cheerleader at the last Regular IVC Meeting, it seems Face Book and Social Media are all of the sudden NOT the place to go to get information. Even though each of the two prior mentioned Council people, Janet and Antony, rely on it to put their agenda and disinformation forward.

Never mind though 60% of Americans now turn to Face Book for their news it is somehow wrong to look for it there according to your vocal Howard Brown fans and supporters. One of which is certainly not Susan Gibbs-Thomas who gave Howard a failing grade on his last review. Here is a link to her comments on the KC Ingram show as to how she came to that grade.



[ Here is a link to Ms. Thomas’ Evaluation of Howard Brown -> Eval-Gibbs_Thomas ]

Then there is the Progressive cheerleading squad that is as equally against the principled handling of the people’s business. The ends my friends do not justify the means when it is in violation of all that is real and sacred in terms of Constitutional governance. The best they could do at the last meeting was to quote a Black-Muslim Marxist radical supremacist known as Malcolm X in defense of Howard and the failure of accountability on the Councils part. Really?

What do we mean by that? Well let’s start here. There were almost 50 minutes of defense of Howard Brown at the last meeting. Including some pretty anti Chamber of Commerce comments made as well. I guess the fact that the Village wants to hire another staffer to deal with Economic Development would have nothing to do with that though. I mean really, why would you want a Chamber of Stakeholders, employers, tax paying businesses and business people have anything to do with Commerce? Personal Kingdom building maybe?

So let’s start with Antony’s brown nose fluff about Howard’s 25 years of achievement with an association called the ICMA. Where the “I” stands for International. Not American or Floridian. Nope – International standards and practices in local governance.

Oh, wait it gets better. The Association is full of United Nations Agenda 2030 and Agenda 21 Great Reset road maps. It is full of the current toxic cancel culture diatribes of Social Equity and Social Justice along the same progressive lines as Iliana Omar, Rashid Talib and Alexandria Occasional Cortex. It sets agendas and roadmaps, their own words, to inject this toxic mentality into YOUR government and Governance. Still want to go along to get along? Like renaming Columbus Day Indigenous peoples day. Remember? And the last minute proclamation of Social Equity and Justice that was slipped in not too far back.

In their own words the (ICMA) works for inclusion of these anti-American socialist progressive policies in local government. In LOCAL Government. In short, it is a progressive far left leaning collection of life long bureaucrats that make their living off the blood and money of the American Tax payer at the expense of Constitutional governance.

The same people that do not see a need for guidelines or policies from the Council instructing them on how to take action and in what direction to do it. Unless of course those policy are set with a wink and a nod in closed door agenda development meetings. Instead of in the daylight.

Maybe Janet does not have enough wisdom to operate as an independent free thinking woman and that is why she uses Howard as a crutch to base all of her decisions on. Original thought and critical thinking seem to be too much to ask. She even admits to that in her own statements from the dais. Of course, though as Antony said, “I haven’t worked this hard in my life”. No kidding – you really haven’t had a job and you still don’t. You continue to take from the Taxpayer for your existence. Maybe if you stopped “dragging the people along” you might find it is less work. Shame on you both.

This self-important attitude the children on this Council have taken are rubbing many County Stake Holders and other elected officials in a negative light. Indiantown is the laughing stock right now and some higher ups we have spoken with have written several of the Council off as ineffective self-absorbed ego maniacs that are driving the progressive short bus to the edge of the cliff for a big wreck.

Can you say Fire Rescue?

The appearance is that showmanship and not substance is winning the day for those with higher political aspirations. They seem to be taking a lot of their cheerleaders with them to the edge as well.

Then we have the not so well thought out defense of Howard used by the current Village mouthpiece and Mayor – Janet Hernandez. Where do we start. Even in her own words she says – “We have no idea and need to rely on the knowledge of Howard because we do not have the knowledge to make the decisions otherwise.” Um, OK well at least you are honest and admit that you really don’t know much of anything.

I get that. But to treat this leftist, Howard Brown, that is financially and socially raping the Village for personal gain, like he walks on water is ridiculous. That is unless you agree with the Identity politics of the groups that Howard is heralded for being such a big part of. He is using these ideologies and integrating toxic racial identity politics and un-American ideas into your Village governance. It needs to end.

It is fine I suppose if you are un-educated and lack the knowledge required to drive this runaway freight train. If you are in support of Council members that proclaim their Leftist Progressive Socialist agenda by aligning with the YEO network and other radical far left associations like the ICMA then you too are part of the problem.

It strikes me as laughable to watch the self-important venom that runs from the mouths of Antony and Janet and sometimes Jackie when they decide that Howard and Staff have all the answers. Fine, if you want to hand the future off to the unelected then you have to live with that. You can continue to pretend that you are doing anything expect sitting there in front of the Microphone and vote how you are told. You are violating your oath. You should and will be held to account in time.

So as an unknown public speaker that claims to have been another far-left elected Mayor from the North East said at the last council meeting, “consider the source”. I could not agree more. Consider the source as being the radical far left identity politic race bating tax and spend equity and social justice baboons from the dark ages.

You know the same ones that say Critical Race theory is good for America. The same Progressive children that are drunk with ego driven power that will tell you racism is systemic and because you are white you are racist. The same crowd that advocated for policy to penalize anyone that does not adhere to their view of how things should be. So much for Unity, inclusion and representing all of Indiantown.

The same crew that wanted to add tens of thousands of dollars to the cost of a new home because they said it was the responsible thing to do.



No, the emperor has no clothes. Watching this Social train wreck that is the Village of Indiantown is sad and exciting at the same time. Hopefully the people of Indiantown will realize who is and who is not representing their interests before the next election.

Maybe too when they approve some of those high priced zero lot line and stack and pack housing units, we can get a fresh batch of voters in here to correct this problem that is the Village of Indiantown.

The problem is the approach being taken and the lack of accountability exhibited by Howard Brown and his crony grunts on the Council and staff.

As we have said many times before. Engage. You have to listen, think and act. If you see something that looks wrong, engage. The time to take your stand and get involved is before the problems manifest into your Village. Get rid of the cancer that is killing Indiantown. It is your Heritage and no one will protect it if you do not care to either. Engage

More to follow on the Indian Mounds, Mask Mandates, State of Emergency and drunken sailor spending that is taking place in your Village. There is a bill to be paid for all of these actions and that check will start to come due very soon!
