America’s Color Revolution: Consolidation Phase

Capture

The tweet above is the sort of Johhny-come-lately, sensationalized, dribble that has occupied the lives of so many good Americans for the last several months. Responses are generally of the sort of "oh my", "praying" or something similar that one, demonstrate most people do not really get what the original poster was trying to say, or two, got swept up in a moment of fear-porn.

I stopped following this Rich guy a long time ago, he gets out over his skis, he says things as if it is new information weeks late. Something is off, but I digress. He is like so many others that do this same thing, he is not the point.


I suggest that we all spend a lot less time on social media right now, seeking snippets of information, trying to be armchair researchers. You know, we all know, enough about what is going on, just by observing its nature. Information, even more information, does not equal knowledge.

America just underwent a color revolution (the name does not matter "Purple" is already taken, maybe historians will reassign). January 6th was the culminating event, the election was the goal. All of 2020 was related. The deception operation that supported this effort was executed on both sides (ANTIFA, BLM, Q, MAGA). The MSM was part of it. It was very likely managed by our own INTEL agencies.  Look at the history and methodologies of color revolutions (see a primer here). This just happened here, color revolution in an advanced form.

That is all you have to know. The details, all the nasty details will not change that knowledge. More information is not relevant to you.

What Rich meant above was that if all of this follows historic precedence, some of the groups (ANTIFA) that those that used color revolution methodologies to take power will soon become unnecessary and will be put down. That is true. He should have explained that, as well as quantified what "soon" means and what must occur first and what is likely to happen. That is the responsible thing to do, a thread or article.

See ANTIFA for what it is: useful idiots to the cabal and a threat to you only if you get into the wrong place (that applies to most of us). They are not your enemy (as in we need to stop them). Don't feed the beast - stay away from that part of the dialectic. (If ANTIFA were to defeat or take control of the seat of power or seize the cabal, then they would be your primary enemy).

For the establishment cabal to move forward with their agenda (move toward all those Great Reset, AGENDA 2030 items) they have to consolidate power, quickly. They face three threats.

  1. America is unique among all nations in which a color revolution has occurred. It would be very dangerous for 80 million Americans to come to the conclusion that the government was illegitimate.
  2. The beast they financed, supported, and enabled in the form of racial hatred and anarchist violence will be impossible to control and hard to appease.
  3. The cabal may have taken power, via soft means, but our laws still say the same thing, it is always possible for a push back from within the Democratic party or active resistance from the Republicans.

The next weeks and months are critical. They have to consolidate power. Then they have to systematically disarm and defang the three threats.

Here is what is likely to occur.

Their first target will be to defang and cower those 80 million in item #1 above. (not a full disarmament yet, not GULAGs or any of that in the short term this will be soft-power and policy stuff)

  1. Look for a slew of EO's and policy changes that directly impact speech, perhaps movement and weapons (in some way)
  2. Look for talk of shaking up the entire circuit court, perhaps dismissing it (and all those judges) and rebuilding it with cabal friendly justices. (key for lawfare)
  3. Watch the DOJ come down hard on all manner of 'right-wing' extremists. (this will cower the rest)
  4. There will be increasing pressure to stop and punish wrong-think and speech and to stop the means of communication and collaboration. (to keep people alone and separated)

Those four above are sufficient to nullify the threat of most of those 80 million. Those four steps will be simple to implement and easy to add to later. This will set the stage for the neutralization of the main threat.

Expect that during this period ANTIFA and associated groups will operate freely, and with ever-increasing violence. These groups built a lot of 4GW capability last year and they contain numerous die-hard cadre, many well-versed in bloc tactics. Biden will attempt to appease groups like BLM through policies, but he cannot appease ANTIFA and maintain power.

Only after the real threat of the 80 million is reduced to a mop-up operation of dead-enders, will Biden be forced to deal with ANTIFA. The FBI has long known the names and addresses of every leader in that group. The night of the long knives mentioned above could be exactly that, one night of mass arrests. These radical groups will have long since served their purpose, and once the 80 million are neutered, Biden will be free to give them the SA treatment.

That is ideally, from the cabal's perspective, how they deal with their two main threats. The third threat is easily managed by manipulating the recent census, passing lawfare type election reform, and using any tools necessary to manipulate future elections.

Black Swan events are possible. We could go to war with a foreign power. ANTIFA could become more violent quicker, some false flag operation might go awry with unexpected blowback. Plans never survive intact when other people get a vote.

But for you, stop worrying about the details. Stop consuming fear-porn like the tweet above. Have knowledge of the nature of the thing. If you live in a large city, expect what is coming. Everybody ought to be aware of the distinct possibility of increased violence generally and all that goes along with that. Look to last summer and multiply that for the most likely scenario. Prepare!

Be aware of some of the events last year, especially if you ever exercise your right to self-defense. Punishing you, the victim will play a key role in neutering the masses and cowering them. Avoid trouble, protests, and nights in the city!

Stop worrying, they have not won yet, there are several ways in which the complete destruction of the old system is avoidable - it all begins by not being played anymore.

Note: by stop worrying, I do not mean the situation is not a real problem. The bad guys are essentially on our four-yard line with a first down and most of our defense is injured. We have to stop doing the things we did for most of the game (which includes all that Q-like researching for just more information). Subsidiarity, interposition, localism, and elements of lawfare may save us, MAY. Get out and get involved. Maybe, just maybe we can thwart the consolidation phase so that this color revolution does not 'stick' and we can attempt to go back to some semblance of normalcy, in a couple of years. It may or may not work, but at this moment, getting involved locally and preparing individually is the very best action we can take.

 

Post-Election Violence in Still Possible

You may not want to believe it, you may not want to see it, you may dismiss it because you disagree with the positions or worldview of the groups that are angry but something is happening in the world.

If we were to put MAGA, ANTIFA, Bernie supporters, BLM, Anti-lock down protestors and others in a big room and keep them there until they could agree on one statement this is what they would eventually all agree on -"Something is wrong with the System"

A significant moment in history when such disparate and diverse groups could agree on such a simple statement was in the 1790s in France. All the various groups then and there that felt that way about their system did not like each other, in fact, they ended up killing each other after they tore down the old system. However, based upon raw emotion and that simple point of agreement they were able to come together to take down a system and kill a king (and priest and landowners and then each other).

Over the last month my previous articles related to color revolutions and what a color revolution is has exploded, the largest traffic I have ever received. People are waking up and realizing that we were massively deceived about a lot of things in 2020 - and people are getting angry about it. It was really fifth-generation warfare (5GW)

People are waking up, you may not agree, you may not want to see it and it all could fizzle out - but it may not. If enough people come to the conclusion that it is all illegitimate and want to tear it down it will happen. If they do this without a binding worldview that inserts morality and order into the change then chaos and death will follow from the change.

Don't just ignore this - this is a real potential threat.

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

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

Individual and Community Preparations for the Times Ahead

I am not positive that the book above (written by me) is worth your time. I am not grifting or trying to sell you something. I offer it for your consideration (the idea of it, not so much the book itself). I am wrong about many things, there is much I do not know. I got 2020 right and I suspect I am right about what is coming. This manifested faster than I perhaps thought, but not entirely so. My first and clearest articulation of this was in July of 2018 (America’s Great Cultural and Political Divide).

I am not suggesting you buy my book, I am suggesting that churches need to think about the issues covered there and think about how little communities stick together in what is to come. Old ways will no longer work. THIS IS NOT JUST A MOMENT.

We are not simply guaranteed to continue as we were, tax exemption for authentic Christian churches is not a given anymore. The culture war was lost rather quickly, things exploded after that. 'Christian' churches just down the street went along with all of this - they will be fine; for a while. If your church does not kowtow, you are much less safe. Elections matter, maybe this is all pushed off for a few years, but things have changed, drastically. Don't underestimate the hatred for authentic Christianity in the air.

Retrenchment dealt with how authentic Christianity and traditional communities survive in the aftermath of the revolution against the old 'hegemony' going on right now. The cultural war was a mere precursor, just preliminary skirmishes. Traditionalism lost at every stage of those battles, but those losses will pale in comparison to what is coming. The fact is, no matter the result of the 2020 election and all related to that, the ideology that propels the angst in the street, supported by millions of Americans, will not go away. The desire for change, the sense of emergency, the desperation will only increase - no matter who wins in 2020.

It is fairly clear at this point, that the cultural war against the hegemony is being leveraged by interests that seek to fundamentally change the balance of power in a permanent way are attempting a color revolution. Color revolution attempts have a poor history of sticking, they sometimes succeed in seizing power, but seldom stick. A month ago I thought the color revolution against the US had a significant chance of initial success, I would venture to say that chance is only moderate now. The threat is still very real. When color revolutions fail, often chaos of another sort follows.

Some speak of civil war, calling into the mind the idea of neighbor fighting neighbor. That is possible but unlikely. Violence is almost a certainty in our future, but it will be sporadic, greater in some locations, and almost absent in others. Anarcho-tyranny, the sort where mass violence is ignored and ordinary individuals are punished for small infractions is more likely. Poverty, shortage, and uncertainty are highly likely.

The only thing I would change in that book is my treatment of the 'community' element of the mega-church. I stated there that I had not directly observed heretical behavior in the megachurch, I had suspicions,  but that I had observed how effective they were at the community building. In 2020, my suspicions about the megachurch were confirmed, it is just what Peter Drucker envisioned. I would delete or edit those few pages to reflect reality. (see my position of the megachurch's role in all this)

email-disclaimer

I was originally inspired to write Retrenchment in part by Rod Dreher's book The Benedict Option. I, like many others, saw some good arguments there, and some glaring weaknesses. Dreher is an odd bird, a man that claims to stand on principles and to see the utter collapse and danger around us. Yet, for the last four years he, and the magazine he writes for, has been incapable of seeing that Trump was a useful and necessary plug in the dam. Dreher threw rocks, cried (almost literally at times) that "Trump was not nice", Dreher acted basically as a prissy-con, not a man operating from real principles (in my observation). He is now shilling a new book to tell us all how to really weather the coming storm, a storm he was not willing to stand a post and fight against in a meaningful way. I would not recommend Live Not By Lies, Dreher lost his credibility. He has proven incapable of dialoguing with those that would correct him, he lives in a sheltered bubble, not the sort to listen to in the times that are coming.

I can, whole-heartedly, recommend The Fourth Turning. Much of one of my first books, The Philosophy of Commonsense, was inspired by the implications suggested by Strauss and Howe. Their generational theory is not perfect, but it is proving more accurate than simply applying histography, sociology, or economics to trend analysis. If the cycles they describe are real, and things have historically aligned, much of what we see going on today makes sense.

Other, random things you ought to purchase and read:

A provocative title that probably puts a lot of people off with visions of zombie hordes and bunkers. This book is simply written, well-organized, and useful. It contains not just zombie-level information, but stuff that is applicable to what is coming (shortages of stuff, increased crime, and greater uncertainty).

Everybody ought to know more about critical medical skills, for many reasons. Don't be put off by the word 'prepper' in the title, all rational people should be prepared for all manner of things. I have said before, and often, everybody needs to know things like how to put on a tourniquet and to treat a sucking chest wound. This book will teach you that and more.

BTW, buy stuff to treat wounds that will kill you and those you love quickly, learn to use it, and keep it on hand.

I did a video last April and suggested that 2020 was a good time to practice gardening skills. I think I was right. It is not too late to learn, the book to the left will help. It is a good time to buy up some non-hybrid seeds also.
