A Primer in Truth

Antonio Gramsci conceived of the need for long-march through Western institution in order to facilitate Marxist revolutions. The church was one such institution that had to be infiltrated. This happened log ago with the UMC, PC (USA) Episcopalian and others. It began in earst with the SBC a few years ago. The megachurch, is unique in that is was built upon communitarian ideology that will eventual man these churches fall lock-step into compliance and support of Marxism and away from Christianity.

I challenge you, spend time watching the videos below, and follow some of the links. Follow the facts yourself, check the sources, and question the conclusions of the folks below. The men below are both qualified to speak, by education and experience, and they speak quality as determined by measuring their words through discernment and reason. They are not speaking from new and ‘interesting’ ideologies or currently popular ideas, they speak truths based upon the Bible, history, and ideas long tested by many reasonable and intelligent people.

Do not follow the world (Romans 12:2), even if it comes in the form of a church. If a church is following the world – it is probably wrong.

Follow the links below long before you read a list of ‘recommended books’. Books often are written by people that quote people that cite ideas that are unproven and unsound. No matter how ‘recommended’ many of these books may be by the crowd, you have to evaluate the intent before the content – you have to understand the ideas the books are based upon and where they come from and what the real purpose of the book has. If you fail to do this, if you read these books and follow the crowd without rightly applying Biblical principles you will be made a fool. If you blindly follow leaders that tell you how to think and tell you not to question but just to ‘act and serve’ you will become nothing more than a Menshevik (a useful idiot to the Marxist – their term, not mine.)

Late addition to list, look at the The Statement on Social Justice & the Gospel. Read the statement, argue from Biblical principles that the statement is wrong. Would your pastor sign this based upon what he has been saying from the pulpit? If not, ask yourself what he is using to justify his words if not the Bible. If you doubt the assertions, look at the resources on the SJ&G site. Why do these real, authentic and concerned Christians disagree so firmly with what progressive churches are saying? Look at the site, read the statement, look at the resources below, check the facts, read you Bible, pray – You already know what right looks like, you are just so far in to your social group you are unwilling to see it.

  1. Watch Dr. Thomas Sowell, the brightest economist of our day explain why all the troubles on the street that people are rioting and protesting about are really public policy and economic problems, not racism.

2. John MacArthur and an expository review of the Biblical explanation for the current troubles.

3. Watch Voddie Baucham explain what Cultural Marxism is, the real objective behind the crisis. (Optional) read this Washington Times editorial about progressive pastors supporting anti-biblical organizations.

4. Hear Voddie Baucham explain why the racialism of the current crisis is really Ethnic Gnosticism and anti-Biblical.

5. (Optional) if you are brave, read ‘Cultural Marxism, Antonio Gramsci, and The Frankfurt School

6. If you do not believe or understand that the bad and dangerous ideologies of Postmodernism and Cultural Marxism have infected the church, watch the Founder’s Ministries presentation below.

7. If you are confused as to why your megachurch pastor is not saying anything like the pastors above and why they have told you to stop having opinions and just listen to the leaders and act, watch Chris Rosebrough’s presentation below (open up the PowerPoint that goes with the lecture first).

8. (Optional) If you do not believe Chris I suggest you check his work. Begin at the Leadership Network ( the organization that was foundational in the creation of your church) read what they say of Peter Drucker. Google and read Druker’s own words about social change and why he got involved with churches (hint: it was not about Christ). Google “Peter Drucker Cult’, there are numerous books papers and articles about leadership cult etc, even people that applied his management theories realize the cult-like elements. Look at these [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10] for some examples of this in the church, there are many more. Think about how preachers in these churches place themselves in every sermon, other preachers do not do this – that is part of the cult of leadership, it is intentional. Go find where your Bible says that ‘truth can only be found in community’ (in context and in agreement with the whole Scripture), ignoring the Biblical principles of the authority of conscience. Ask why preachers in these churches are so fast to follow the WORLD in this time instead of rightly applying the Bible – where are they leading you? Are these false teachers? (Matthew 24:24)

9. See Dr. Stephen Hicks explain Postmodernism (the stuff that fills up those books on that recommended list you are provided continually)

10. (Optional) a discussion of America’s New Religion…and How To Stay Christian.

11. Read deeply about China’s Cultural Revolution, dig for facts, not just Wikipedia, and much of the muted stories that appear high in Google searches – go deeper to find the true and horrible story. Read how 100 million people died and countless others were tortured and imprisoned and an entire nation impoverished because of the same sorts of radical ideas and ideologies at play in our world right now. See below for one example.

12. A description of the Marxist plan from 1966

13. I know nothing about the folks that produced the video, but I have been familiar with the lecturer Yuri for years, he is the real deal – the video would be much better without the commentary.

If you watch and read all of the above and more, from folks that apply a Biblical understanding of these issues in a way that is tried and true and tested over the generations you will come to understand a few things about the world. You will see that some folks you have come to trust are wrong and have led you astray.

Don’t listen to me – but also don’t let others tell you how you are supposed to see all of this. There are fools and charlatans out there and many bad ideologies. If you listen to them you forfeit your inheritance to a good future and damn your children to suffer under the mess you went along with the crowd in creating.

Be a true man and woman of God, Be brave, seek truth, think for yourself, don’t follow the crowd, don’t follow charlatans!


Covid and the Color Revolution

In mid-late February, many watched foreign news services concerning the status of China and the Coronavirus outbreak in China and wondered if this was ‘the big one’.  When a totalitarian regime locks down a city of millions, literally welds people into their homes and builds emergency Army hospitals and somehow, despite their hold on internet services, footage escapes – wise people wake up and notice.  I recall the chatter in various places regarding low cloud cover that appeared to have source from smokestacks near the quickly built hospital – crematoria were the conjecture.

I took it all seriously.

Then I watched with growing anticipation, and perhaps some anxiety, the situation with the Diamond Princess cruise ship (and others). I recall seeing an interview with an MD, an infectious disease guy, that visited the ship. He stated he had never seen a more dangerous situation, in terms of quarantine and controls. This was clearly not news to anyone that has even casually observed various ‘outbreaks’ on cruise ships over the years. The close quarters seem to make them rather like petri dishes.

We all watched, and then, despite the fact that most of the passengers were older and in what would seem high-risk categories, the infection rate was not outrageous and the fatality rate was low. That was a moment of clarity for me, the first time I thought the China story was odd.

I am not going to argue from facts and data here. I have not bothered to go back and find the various stories and links, things that any of us that watched this closely will recall already. My arguments here are from reason, what does common-sense tell us about what we have seen. In the aggregate, if we look at the big picture, our reason and common-sense tell us already that something is odd. Common-sense has served humanity for centuries when it was impossible to parse all the facts down to finite levels of detail. It is sufficient now.

Things that ought to make us wonder:

  1. Low infection/fatality rate in vulnerable populations on cruise ships early on.
  2. From March to June, people went on Spring Break (we were told that was apocalyptic), to big box stores, and more WITHOUT MASKS.
  3. We were told mask would actually make it all worse.
  4. We observed verbal gymnastics as government bureaucrats explained the criteria for counting COVID-19 deaths, and we recall how those criteria changed.
  5. We saw a spike of deaths, many in nursing homes in New York, only to learn later that some bizarre things went on. (see this young lady’s research, here)
  6. We were told that nobody could talk about therapeutics, we were told to “trust science” but only some scientists apparently. (more here)
  7. At one-point, Brix told us that if we did everything perfectly, 200k people would die and if not 2 million would perish.
  8. Of the 210k that have died WITH COVID, current CDC statistics demonstrate that a small percentage die with ONLY COVID. Most of those deaths were old people with other serious problems.
  9. 99.8% (mean) of everyone that gets COVID survives just fine. The Flu appears to be about 99.991%. We see it as infectious, but it is not the Zombie virus, and we all are beginning to know that.
  10. Despite all of the hyper emotionality related to ‘super-spreader’ events, the media has never said a word about mass protests, unless they are related to lockdowns.

Here are the current CDC stats for COVID, bear in mind, not all counted in these numbers are people that died exclusively of COVID, many had other conditions.

0-19: 99.997%

20-49: 99.98%

50-69: 99.5%

70 & over: 94.6%

Taking a gander at those numbers, and the other things our eyes see, common-sense informs us that none of the lockdowns make any sense. Perhaps they never made sense. Humans have faced viruses and sickness throughout history. How is a virus that has such a high survival rate different? Why was 2020 different? How many people have had their lives and livelihoods ruined over this? How many people avoided going to regular doctor visits for fear of the ‘rona and as result cancers and other maladies have gone undiagnosed?

More things to ponder:

  • What of all the talk of Fauci, the NIH, and the Wuhan lab - and why is Bill Gates touted as a virus expert now? Good things to ponder, here is a thread.
  • You have likely heard of Event 201, the exercise in the fall of 2019 put on by Gates, the NIH, and others to practice for a pandemic. Have you also heard of CLADE X? (see more)
  • What if some of those videos that came out of China could be shown as fake, you know the ones with dead people laying in the street, would that make you take notice? (Look here)
  • Remember how as early as April progressives and radicals were building the narrative that in-person voting was so dangerous (this was just before they began ignoring mass in-person protesting) (see thread)
  • Did you know the WHO is a bunch of nefarious clowns? (read all about it)
  • Lastly, why does nobody mention China and their gain of function research at the Wuhan lab anymore? (link)

The cost of all of this is something we have not yet fully reckoned. We will likely never fully know the cost, but if we are honest, we know down deep it was huge. Do you recall when Boris Johnson initially planned for Great Britain to protect the vulnerable and work toward herd immunity? He was literally shut down. Do you recall when Trump wanted to close the border and take precautions but carry on? The media and the opposition party screamed bloody murder. (remember all that in January, we do)

We were told to trust the science, but epidemiologists working in Africa have long known that quarantines often do not work and sometimes have negative outcomes. A lockdown of this scale has no precedence, there is no data. it was not based upon science, rather a public policy guess.

Many of us recall the spat of academic papers that appeared and then disappeared claiming that COVID-19 had aspects of bioengineering. That was both odd and disconcerting, more so because it all was quickly suppressed. Here is one you may still read, "SARS-CoV-2 Is an Unrestricted Bioweapon".

And what if, as generally happens with viruses in the wild, this has become less deadly over time? Do all the panic and economic devastation and political posturing still make sense to you (view a thread on this topic)

I wrote back in April that the reaction and overreaction to this virus looked very Saul Alinsky-like. The fear generated in the population enabled the government to do things previously unthinkable. We learned in 2020 that our inalienable rights are contingent upon the whims of even the lowest elected officials, and sometimes unelected bureaucrats. The massive payouts, the massive debt, our initial attempts at universal basic income (UBI), our flirting with modern monetary policy (MMP) – all unimaginable in 2019. In a real sense, we moved much closer to a central, all-powerful socialist state in 2020, a larger jump than the New Deal and the Great Society.

China benefitted from all this. Some experts have claimed the virus was bioengineered. (article here) We now know it is not nearly as deadly as China portrayed and let escape in videos. We know that corporations want to return to the old trade model. The Democrats likewise. The democrats and China benefitted from this virus. Talk about election interference...coincidence?

Common-sense tells us that none of this made any sense. The virus is real, a lot of people get sick, some die but it is not what we were told, it is not at all what we are told. Americans know, or should know that this was all wrong.

Yet many do not. Almost all of our subsidiary institutions that we are supposed to be able to trust have failed us this year. Academia, the media, organized religion – all went along without objection, often leading the charge of absurd emotionality.

If we look around the world, we have to wonder the following:

  1. Why have the homeless in the US not been stricken?
  2. What of Africa, South America, and India? Why no large outbreaks?
  3. How did China get back to work and back open so quickly?
  4. Why is the bulk of the extreme lockdowns and the crisis focuses primarily in Five Eyes nations FVEY (Australia, Canada, Great Britain, New Zealand, and the U.S.)?

The Five Eyes fact is especially disturbing. Parts of Australia are undergoing draconian government actions, arrests, restrictions, etc. New Zealand locked down a nation because four people in one household tested positive. The U.S. shut down the world's most vibrant economy, and has not let up? Why is the virus so selective?

If you can come to the realization that nothing about Coronavirus and our reaction made any sense then the next question that is obvious is why, why now, why at this point in history? Beyond the fact that the overreaction advanced socialist objectives, why has this overreaction affected only the FVEY nations?

Some suggest this is related to a globalist inspired color revolution. It is the Five Eyes nations that stand, or have stood, against a growing Chinese peer-competitor status and perhaps even hegemony. The populist and nationalist position of the Trump administration is anathema to those that stand the most to gain from globalism. Trump is as dangerous to that agenda and perhaps Sanders was, and we see what the Democratic party did to keep Sanders off the ballot (twice). BREXIT and a popular reaction to centralization were dangerous to globalism in Great Britain. These sorts of things cannot stand it seems.

Given the facts, given what our innate senses, our common-sense, tell us about 2020 and COVID, given the lockstep fashion in which the media has never questioned the narrative, in fact, they are the chief purveyors and perhaps creators of said narrative, given what we see we now; something is rotten in Denmark.

It is not only possible, but it also seems likely at this point, that all of this COVID response was contrived. That it is all related to a larger effort to conduct a soft coup, a color revolution in the U.S. The riots, the unrests, the unleashing of hate and angst, supported fully by one party and excused by the media – all seems related now.

If true, if this is a color revolution, it will end poorly, likely in violence.

 

If Democrats would use the FBI and CIA to illegally spy on a presidential campaign, do the things they did to Bernie to keep him on the sidelines, spend four years undermining effective governance, yearn for the day that relations can be restored with their idolized totalitarian capitalist welfare state of China AND openly support violence, looting and arson on American streets, is it a far stretch to consider that they would support an all-out color revolution attempt and use an infectious but not extremely deadly virus (perhaps one designed for this purpose) to help that cause? If they have used the intelligence community once for illegal activities is it inconceivable that they are now using intelligence assets in all FVEY nations to cement power?

It is plausible, more so than a mere coincidence! (Color Revolutions Explained)


Many of the links with research are from 'L' (@SomeBitchIKnow) follow her. She is amazing at digging for and aggregating bits of information. The conclusions and assessment are my own and do not necessarily attach to her take on all this (they should but I cannot speak for her).

I also realize, only recently, that some Q folks hold to this theory. I am not one of those folks, I did not get my assessment from them, this started to smell fishy to me in April. I will say, that just because many Q folks ask similar questions does not negate the theory. They are not wrong about everything, they perhaps just sometimes fill in too many gaps in their analysis. 

Preparing for Post-Election Violence

I assess that violence, perhaps even an incipient insurgency is possible after the election in the US. If a reactionary movement congeals an outright civil war is not an impossibility. In all the scenarios I look at, something transformative, chaotic, and perhaps even violent occurs within the next twenty-six months.  We are in the danger window, a black swan or outlier event could exacerbate or expedite what is occurring. It is time to take practical steps, right now, to get ready. Do not wait until election night or after!

If you see the need and want to get started now, take a look at four short videos dealing with planning factors for preppers. Do not go at this half-cocked.

Violent Chaos is Coming: What You Must do Now

The “Trump and GOP Senators Deliberately Infected with COVID Theory”

It is hard to know what to make of the sheer number of reasonable people that are coming out on social media and stating how odd it is to them that Trump and so many GOP senators and campaign folks are all getting COVID now, just before the election. It is almost as if they already believe there is a color revolution going on. I realize full well that Congress spoke this week and told us that theorizing about theories is not acceptable when they condemned Qanon. Much of the leftist world celebrated and reminded us that of course, a cabal of pedophiles does not run the world, Putin does! Only some theories about conspiracies are acceptable it seems.

But what to make of reasonable people questioning the timing and circumstances of Trump and others getting the 'rona? One easy explanation is that they were in the same place at the same time. A counter-argument is the Trump travels all over, sees thousands of people - why now.

Eccentric entertainer Alex Jones predicted on March the 13th 2020 that before the election, 'they', would either infect Trump with Covid-19 or tell him that he was infected and then 'they' would ensure that he never left the hospital, essentially assassinating him. In this case 'they' are the folks running the color revolution.  Those were pretty wild things to suggest several months ago - in October, it seems there are regular people willing to consider such depravity is possible.

Here is the key thing to take away - the fact that enough people have seen enough odd shenanigans going on (lies in the media, contrived violence, mass deception) to even make it feasible that one could ponder something as dark and nefarious as the above having occurred is enough to tell you how bad this is - it is almost like a 'social signal' that informs us that we collectively know something is up, we cannot know all the facts, but we know somebody is out to harm us, we sense it and see tell-tale evidence.

Heck, before 2020, I thought all the talk of 'the CIA killing JFK' was humorous. Now I go back and watch one of his later speeches where he warned of dark and secret forces at work and I wonder, could those 'whackos' have been right all these years.

Here is another take - if you think folks questioning the timing of these infections are 'nuts'. Wait and see what happens if Trump recovers quickly. Mainstream media will claim it was all a hoax. I had a relative ask me today if I thought Trump really had COVID. He may be bombastic, he may be very 'New Yorker' - but he does not appear to be a man that would fake an illness and look weak, this is not in his nature. Just wait though, for the National Enquirer (I mean NYTs and CNN) to suggest this was all a hoax that he was ever sick - it will happen!

This is our color revolution. JFK was right, dark and secret forces are at work and deception abounds.

Our Color Revolution will End in Violence

This is not a political post, yet I suspect some will not see the difference. It is too late to change this, or even convince many what is happening. I hope to convince somebody that this is all very dangerous and places us all in danger. We need to get ready and prepare.

I am not defending Trump. My gosh, he could have handled that entire debate differently, perhaps like Reagan with some smiles and a few “well Mr. Biden’s”. Yet as much as I disdain his approach, I actually have empathy for his anger.

That entire event was just a hot mess. Trump debated two men. All of the questions were just odd. Biden called Trump a racist. As I look across his life before office, and now, I see no evidence of that, and much to indicate he is not a racist. Biden was not challenged on a thing he said, nothing in a real way.

Any honest person that separates themselves from their individual political bias and preferences sees this. It was a shame. I am not excusing Trump for being so difficult. However, I suppose that if last night was essentially my life since the day he became the nominee in 2016, I too would be angry.

If we can just agree on one-point, last night makes no sense. Biden was never asked why he has ‘called in sick’ so many days, never asked hard questions at all about anything. Nothing about his role in Libya, Ukraine, nothing...Why?

Media bias? That is the simple answer. However, if we take this into account with all of the other weird and obvious media deceptions this year does it make sense to just dismiss it so simply?

Many of the things said last night are dangerous and inflammatory speech. The president is a racist, that is said out loud in a  debate and goes unchallenged? Trump is called on to denounce ‘white supremacist’, yet there is zero real proof that such folks are doing any of the violence and burning in America. How does that make sense? How is it safe usage of language? How does it not ensure we are further divided?

Literal proof of illegal activity conducted against Trump has come out in recent days, it was not even mentioned last night. This is simply an absurd level of gaslighting at this point.

Every day I see more proof that we are being subjected to a color revolution attempt. Every day the narrative of division and hate goes unchallenged, it is spoken now as if it were Holy truth delivered on tablets from a mountain. The media is complicit in this, by the resistance media and controlled opposition, both designed to divide, confuse, and control. Every day it is more obvious that we are in the midst of our own color revolution (see an explanation of what a color revolution is).

Fox News is just as compromised as CNN or MSNBC. They are controlled opposition. (see an odd video here) Tucker Carlson may be one of the few exceptions.

Color revolutions, by design, have to create and amplify division. One of the goals is to get people in the street and angry, to use that anger to force a crisis, and to use that crisis to seize political power. It is an extremely dangerous game to play in a place multi-racial, heavily armed nation like the US. In Georgia and Ukraine, there was essentially one ethnicity and one shared religion. Their color revolutions came and went without the violence spreading. In the Middle-east, in nations that have been subjected to color revolutions, things went more poorly. The Sunni/Shiite divide is large, the small Christian minorities were especially vulnerable. We know what has occurred in Libya, Syria, and Egypt.

America has the potential to be far worse. By making this a black versus white conflict, those that have deluded and confused so many have provided perfect and readily identifiable teams. Think of villages in Yugoslavia where Muslims and Christians had lived side by side in peace for generations suddenly turning on one another.

Color revolutions fail as often as they succeed, and ‘success’ is often fleeting at best. Often after failure civil war follows. It is exceedingly possible that whether those that have done this to us, ‘they’, succeed or fail this year in seizing power that they will not be able to then turn off the growing division and hate. An open insurgency seems more plausible and likely each day.

I can only beg you at this point. Wake up and look around. We cannot stop this, we cannot even fully know all that are involved. We should be able to see with open eyes that this is all very odd and dangerous.

I invite you to join me in thinking now about how we prepare in our homes, hearts, and local communities for what is highly likely to come this fall.

America’s Civil War will begin as an Insurgency

We hear the rumblings daily, from mainstream outlets now. There is even a news and opinion aggregator that tracks articles written about America’s next (new/ongoing/upcoming) civil war.

In a very real and profound sense, America is nowhere near civil war. No more than the war in 1861-1865 was an actual civil war. America is in the final stages of a proto-insurgency (an insurrection). We are close to teetering into an open phase I insurgency, but not a civil war, not yet.

Mine is not a mere argument of semantics, this is not word-play. It is entirely possible that America could enter a civil war, but not yet.

The following is the US Government official description of some key indicators or a proto-insurgency moving to a phase one insurgency (Incipient Conflict Stage) (from Guide to the Analysis of Insurgency 2012, USG pp 10-11)

I wrote back in 2018, that America was more divided than at any point since 1850. I even indicated that I believed we crossed the line into a bloody Kansas phase after the shooting of Republican congressmen in 2017. I used ‘civil war’ language and analogies. I stand by the analogies; I do not even believe that the folks currently claiming that we are headed for such an event are wrong entirely. However, some things have changed, the polarization in America has not been even on each side. One side still believes that the system can work, that voting will work. The most radical on the other side no longer believe this.

Seldom does real and honest dialogue occur across the poles at this point. However, last Saturday I watched a fascinating interview between two such people. They talked about issues, philosophy, they were respectful and dialogued. However, in the end, the individual representing the radical elements asked the following; “What do you do when you cannot vote yourself our of your people being murdered by the government on the street?”

You may disagree that this question is based upon reality, but whether you agree or not is irrelevant. A growing minority believes this; they feel this way, this is their reality.

COL Robert Jones designed a methodology in 2012 [link] that further illuminates what gives rise to an insurgency. He outlines four factors:

  • Illegitimacy (a growing minority views the government as illegitimate)
  • Injustice (they see injustice done toward their group)
  • Disrespect (they perceive disrespect from the ‘system’)
  • Hopelessness (they have lost hope in changing the system via the normal rules)

We can see all four factors present in the BLM movement. These same views are also present in ANTIFA and other ideological groups. Many have simply given up on changing the system from within.

Insurgency model

Lastly, in Jones’ model, we have seen an increased societal tolerance for violence. As this tolerance increases and the other indicators of a growing insurgency increase, a nation-state inevitably transitions to an Incipient Conflict Stage.

There are two primary reasons that this will likely not develop initially as a civil war.

  1. The State (in general) is still capable of acting in unison to oppose an open insurrection.
  2. Despite media reports claiming otherwise, there is no real organized counter-radical organization(s).

There are numerous scenarios by which the solidity of the state could be threatened. It would not take a long period of time for a counter-force to rise to face the insurgents. All of this could become civil war-like, but it is not a forgone conclusion.

There is one additional point to consider. It is highly likely that The United States has been undergoing a color revolution, culminating in 2020. (see definition of color revolutions) The very nature of a color revolution is to sew chaos and violence before the crescendo, those that foment these activities attempt to usurp elements of the institution of the state. Our system of federalism makes this easier in some ways that in unitary executive nations. We have already seen signs in 2020 that some jurisdictions have indeed been turned. It is possible that if the color revolution fails, the damage of division and usurpation created to bring it about might have damaged our systems to such a degree that the state is incapable of effectively opposing an insurrection. In that case, regular people will rise to fill the void – a civil war will ensure.  That is a possible scenario.

The election matter of course, if Trump wins the insurrection kicks off much sooner, but make no mistake, even with Biden, the most radical will very quickly lose patience that even the Democratic party cannot dismantle the old fast enough. Violence comes either way.

What is likely, come sometime around November 3rd until it is resolved or put down, is that we move into an Incipient Crises phase of an insurrection. I discuss that in the video below.

Five Planning Factors for Preppers

Five planning factors for preppers (prepping in a hurry for the unprepared). As we approach almost certain increased chaos and violence this fall, we all need to prepare. Before you rush into this process willy-nilly, step back, breathe, strategize, and operationalize your efforts. This begins by taking an inventory of facts and assumptions.

Prepper Planning Factors

 

Below are a couple of items that may assist you in tackling the factors mention in this video.

Planning Considerations Part 2

What to Buy to Prepare for Hard Times

If all of the events of 2020 have not awakened your sense of fragility in an uncertain world, perhaps what comes next will. Whether you believe this to be a color revolution that passes relatively quickly, an insurrection, or the beginning of a civil war, or a Fourth Turning, most of us now realize that increased uncertainty, chaos, and violence is coming.

You still have time to prepare for the chaos that is coming, you can still get ready no matter what your current status is. Below are some items you might think about. your situation, location, and all that dictate what you can or need to do. But you need to do something. Be prepared (I was a Boy Scout and those are good words).

Here is a couple of previous post on this subject:

Violent Chaos is Coming: What You Must do Now

Individual and Community Preparations for the Times Ahead

Nobody ‘Wins’

I hold the following to be true:

Assuming that Trump loses the election, the morning after it is over (whenever that occurs between Nov. 3 and Jan. 20) folks that voted for Trump will wake up, go to work and carry on with their lives.

Assuming that Biden loses, that will not be the case for many people that oppose Trump.

Tell me I am wrong. Make an argument. You know I am right.

Regular Americans suffered under Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and Obama. Say what you will, but I would argue that if you added up the totality of the previous twenty-six years it was bad in the aggregate - corruption, wars, growth of bureaucracy, increase in racial division, moral decline and absurdity. You may have liked some of those guys, disliked others, but looking back in a big picture way most Americans know that we are worse off after them than before them (to paraphrase Ronald Reagan).

Perhaps Trump was going to be a failure. Perhaps his personality was such that he would have hoisted himself on his own petard. We will never actually know. We do know, with pretty clear fidelity at this point, that before he was even elected our own government did illegal things against him. I have some experience with FISA courts, there is no way that the Steele document should have ever passed muster. Yet, it did.

Trump’s presidency was marred from the beginning with the taint of illegitimacy. Claims of the sort that are unsustainable in a republic that wishes to remain just and free. We have an imperfect system, things happen, courts are not always right but true republics seek to apply justice within framework of the rule of law. If you do not like the result of an election, a court case or an incident between government agents and the public, civilized people do not try to figuratively or literally burn it down.

Even if most of the narrative of the last four years were true, none of that justifies deliberately obstructing the process getting on with regular life. The reasonable response for those that disagreed would have been to redouble efforts to affect the next election outcome in a way that respected traditions, conventions and norms. Essentially to act decently.  If they hated Trump so much, act reasonably and work to make him a one-term president.

It seems now that Trump, as abrasive and aggressive as he can sometimes be with words, was never really the problem. The real problem (to those that have never accepted a position of just moving forward) it seems is a system that allows ordinary Americans to exercise power.

America is not systemically racist. “Right-wingers” are not running amuck causing chaos and destroying stuff. Trump has never said or even indicated that if it is clear he lost the election he would try to ‘hold power’. Almost none of the stuff that is repeated continuously across the media and social media is actually true. Much of it is absolutely absurd.

We have problems, economic problems, spiritual problems, and perhaps now problems of some that are so disaffected they have become radicalize revolutionaries. However, none of our real problems justify the violence or destruction we have seen this year – it does not justify a revolutionary movement. All reasonable people know that.

Agree with that or not. I cannot convince you that this is all foolishly dangerous if you do not yet see it. No matter how this ends, we will be worse off.

Consider this. Just yesterday, in three separate states, police arrested two groups of Christians for ‘gathering outside and singing’ and a mother for sitting far from the crowd watching her son play football without a mask (tased her too). All of this stuff going on in the streets against the police, and against societal order in general, will all come home to roost. At the end of all of this, no matter how it plays out, not matter who ‘wins’ this thing (not simply the election, I mean this larger event), we will end up with a more robust police state.

See my video about the Mutawa (Saudi Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice). If the radicals win the police will not be disbanded, they will be replaced with ‘morality police’ and anarcho-tyranny will reign.

Place holder, will make video later, the Mutawa are a cautionary tale.

If somehow something of traditional America remains, if what we were ‘wins’ – we will not be the same. To beat this will require state violence at this point. The radical groups are organized and financed. The ideology is entrenched. The narrative is just too sticky. To beat this, at this point, requires police powers we have never seen in the US. Nobody will be pleased with such an outcome, the violence would stop, societal order would be restored but we would be fundamentally changed.

Nobody ‘wins’ this.

I would be fascinated to hear, I would listen to the whole plan, from anyone that has supported this, how it all ends? How does it get better? How do we put the cap back on the bottle?

Have you honestly pulled back the curtains and watched and listened to what folks on the street are doing and saying? Do you still want to claim the most egregious words and acts are just anomalies? If your argument begins with your experience attending some protests during the day and you have refused to actually read what ANTIFA and BLM actually state as their goals (before they scrubbed their websites last week), then I can only say you are unaware of the true nature of this.

If you ask me the same questions, I would tell you it does not look pretty for traditionalism. The fact is, historically, ‘conservatives’ seldom come out on top of these sorts of events. Spain is perhaps the best contra-example, and they ended up with a nationalist dictator for twenty-five years. In the uprisings in the late 1840s in Europe, monarchies were able to withstand the onslaught (mostly) simply because they were unitary executives – they could act.

Our Federal system is our greatest strength, in good times. In times like this our Federalism one of our greatest weaknesses. Add to that the fact that conservatives, by their very nature are concerned primarily with preserving things, not changing the system – they are not designed to create plans for fundamental change. Conservatives suffer from ‘normalcy bias’ their worldview begins from an assumption that the old way is good enough to fix problems.

This ‘normalcy bias’ is not well-positioned to confront a popular movement, supported by an ideology of change.  Thinking that this is just a moment, that things will return to normal and settle down – that is the weakness of conservatives.  Normal folks will sit at home, afraid and confused hoping someone saves them and fixes it all until the day the mob comes for them.

More troubling. All of this violence, the organized nature of it (stop calling it protests, those happen, but protestors do not need shields or bats) could be shut-down quickly. If folks like me can trace the money, find out who rents U-haul trucks and use technology to identify leaders in the group appearing in different cities and different events you know the FBI can do this. Why has the institution of government not done this? Stopping the riots will not stop the ideology, but it would stop the tenor from rising. Why have we not stopped it?

Why have retired officers violated Article 88 of the UCMJ at historically unprecedented levels? This is not normal, it is illegal, they know that. On top of all of that, we see corporate media and corporations marching in lock-step in support of easily disprovable narratives. Why?

Something more nefarious, dastardlier even than the radical nonsense in the street is at play. (Color revolution)

Let’s see if what happens with this Supreme Court nomination. If Trump selects a Federalist Society nominee, well I want nothing to do with the road that leads down. It is almost as detestable as the Marxist dystopia being pressed by the radicals. If he goes the Federalist route, I will begin to dust off my theory that all of this was collusion between some Democrats and Republicans (in conjunction with corporate elites) to complete the color revolution.
