Graybeards, Color Revolution, and the Yellow Wood

Last year, in the late spring and certainly by mid-summer, guys like me began talking. I have my own boring tale of that ‘adventure’ it is not relevant to the story. Here is what is relevant.

Many of us began to see the same patterns and have the same concerns; we began to reach out to one another, to help explain it all. In many ways, the retired (as in recently retired) military community is not that large. My little group that rallied together had many commonalities in what we did in the latter part of our careers, we often served together. But it is larger than that, people have friends in other places, and what we found was that others were coming together and thinking the same sorts of things, "something is wrong". It all looks coordinated, the level of coordination is state-actor level, it looks like various methodologies are being utilized in an almost doctrinal fashion.

An awful lot of cross-talk occurred across little informal groups.

My little merry band of compatriots approached it semi-formally, in a whimsical way at first, and then rather seriously. Among us were guys of various military specialties, what we had in common was that toward the end of our careers at each we worked exclusively in the intelligence or electromagnetic space (space is a very odd civilian word, but it paints the picture). Some came from special forces, others from civil affairs, and one a career military police guy. Scattered throughout were men that went on to pursue law enforcement careers. Yes, we were all men, there was a large social aspect to the effort initially. We even had two lawyers, odd birds at first, but critical later because of their operational experience. All of us knew one or two guys somewhere that was talking a lot more frequently to their circle, some informally, others much more formally. We shared thoughts, observations, and ideas in that decentralized way.

Here are some things to know:

  • Retired military guys are stubborn, headstrong, and cock-sure. Sometimes, oftentimes, in fact, rank and the dog-butt-smelling routine of measuring schools and assignments still come into play. Many of us believe we know what we know and we are often the most difficult with each other.
  • “Evidence” in the military setting, as in knowing enough about a thing to know what you are looking at is vastly different than evidence sufficient for an LEO to present a case, and much less comprehensive than what a lawyer needs to argue a case.
  • A lot more than two paths diverged in a yellow wood last year. From my assessment, my observation, and this is of course very informal as most communication across hodge-podge groups was just a guy talking to a guy – but essentially beyond the basic fundamentals, there was much disagreement. Almost everyone that reported agreeing that what was happening was coordinated, looked like a state-actor, and used doctrinal methodology. The divisions and divergence in the wood all centered on BY WHOM (the totality of the who), AGAINST WHO, and WHY (beyond the obvious objectives embedded into the methodologies observed. We all easily painted the obvious targets, there was disagreement on the purpose. This disagreement is still obvious today as some groups have become more vocal and public. (more on that below)

What about the evidence I mentioned above, the way of knowing what we believed we knew. At the operational level in the military decisions are made by conducting what is called an Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield (IPB). All the knowns and assumptions are gathered, plotted, charted, weighed, and out of that Likely Enemy Courses of Action (LECOA) are developed. Commanders and their staff then attempt to hijack the enemy's decision loop by creating their own Courses of Action (COA) that take advantage of what is known and assumed. It is not overly complex at the tactical and operational levels.

If you move up in complexity, to the strategic level and beyond, to Wicked Problems, it is similar, but not exactly. 2020 was a wicked problem. Wicked problems require design methodology to solve or even to define. You still do something similar to IPB, but now it involves assessments (Intelligence, social, economic, political). Very often these assessments disagree, on their face; there seems to be no connecting thread. That complexity is what makes a wicked problem so wicked.

Here is the key take-away, and this is specifically why different groups, all beginning with a basis of commonality in language, foundational experience, education, and outlook diverged so greatly after seeing the core of the problem. Many of them used IPB (datapoints, intelligence, and operational observation) to try to explain a wicked problem.

I may be, no I am, stubborn, headstrong, and cock-sure, I could be wrong when I say that other groups, some now very public, evaluated this wrong – they missed the rest of the BY WHOM, AGAINST WHO, and WHY. I may be those things, but I stand on the assertion that this was a wicked problem and involved many more groups and people than simply saying “the democrats” or “the deep state” (without really acknowledging what that term ultimately means).

Here is a sample of what my little group produced. (Initial Report: 202004015-A) We released the full report last year to selected legislators, we will never in our lifetime post the full report publically. We have ceased operations (mostly) we are a bonfire and beer club now, I am the only member of the group with a public persona, we believe it is that dire, that complex, and that much of a problem.

All our work agreed with that of others, fundamentally, state capture or color revolution methodology was used, supporting that were information operations (INFO OPS), psychological operations (PSYOPS), and a heavy dose of private partnership (controlled media narrative) and non-governmental organization (NGO) involvement.

Where we disagreed, and hardly anyone that speaks of this and agrees with us still speaks publically, is in the scope. We came to see that this could not and was not happening to benefit one party, that it could not have been pulled off by one party, it was transnational in nature. Most others saw it as international and binary – I believe because they used the wrong methodology to evaluate it all.

Since last summer the term Color Revolution has become associated with a few things. MAGA, Trump, and Election fraud simply because the most vocal of groups of greybeards see it that way and discuss it in those terms. There was even a very public effort to solidify this concept by Tucker Carlson and Darren Beattie.[1]

My former merry band, now somber jokesters that drink beer and used gallows humor we watch the world burn, we all agree that we strongly disagree with those people – turning the very real thing that happened into nothing more than a catch-phrase for partisan rally words is dangerous, flawed, and ultimately destructive. If only a small element of society will even utter the phrase, and the other side of an increasingly false dialectic sees it as nothing more than a dog-whistle, nobody will ever talk about the real problem.

This is of course exactly what has happened. The population, in general, will not even hear arguments about election fraud and what that really means. Those that are interested in the subject will not step back and evaluate the intricate deception operation that poisoned that effort.[2] We have been separated, deceived, divided, and frog-marched right into the consolidation phase[3] without even seeing the game being played. (see more about my interpretation of our Color revolution here [4], [5], [6], [7]).

Consolidation Phase Danger

We sense the import of the events of the last nineteen months, we know something has changed, that much hangs in the balance. There is one reality, one explanation, that if true, eclipses all others issues and data points; not just because it includes and explains all the others but because it directly impacts our present and future.

Stated simply, the United States underwent a color revolution in 2020, the final phase (crescendo) was completed on January 6th,2021. The methodology was executed almost textbook-like, it included all of the elements. It was also more advanced and complex than any other color revolution operation. It involved a whole-of-government approach in concert with political parties, the media, and other institutions. All of the chaos, crisis, lawfare, deception, all of it supported the effort. (see an explanation of color revolutions here)

Color Revolution

There are numerous implications generated by the claims above. Even if one can follow the methodology and template events and actions onto the model and see it present, it is hard to fathom how it could encompass not just the United States, but involve much of the world. This seems incomprehensible, impossible. Even if one can accept and see that the media played a pivotal role, it is hard to accept they did so willingly. The degree of coordination that would take, logically we assume that is not possible.

And yet, the explanation fits. The methodology is clearly present to the observer that is honest and objective.

There is one key difference between our color revolution and those the US has supported in other places. It appears the goal here was not to replace a regime but to replace the system of government with one that looks and sounds the same but is ultimately very different. Some claim the world will never go back to how it was, but few consider that it never can once this is complete. There will be no ability to simply vote it all back because foundational things will change, safeguards will have disappeared and our conception of law and liberty will change. It is much more than just COVID going on. All of the coincidences, chaos, crisis, the deception (left and right) all of it built toward state capture.

Few have written or talked of this phenomenon, not the totality of it, not the methodology and fewer still have used the terminology to define it. Darren Beattie, of Revolver News, perhaps became the most famous last year, but he began talking about it months after others. And here is the thing, Beattie uses the term to claim it was simply an effort to get rid of Trump. This line of reasoning ignores a couple of enormous difficulties, facts. This took a whole-of-government approach firstly, and secondly, it required the implementation of policies that enabled the mosaic of crisis. It took the President and the support of both parties to make this happen. Trump did the things that enabled this, whether one wants to argue that he was duped or part of it, I will leave to others to decide. I can only state as fact that the color revolution could not have occurred without Trump. Beattie is wrong, intentionally or unintentionally I do not know.

What Beattie gets right is to point out the history of FBI and other National Security apparatus (NATSEC) involvement in a number of various plots and schemes they themselves uncover. Often the plots would never gain any steam if the FBI was not pushing, plotting, and planning the event. 

The primary difficulty of most to grasp the above is the scope and scale of it all, by implication, this effort had to reach into many offices, public and private. It did. But it did not have to involve everyone, and not even those involved had to know much more than what they needed to. Undoubtedly, there were internal information operations aimed just at keeping key people on task and on the talking points. It is not difficult to do that, particularly considering the incestuous nature of the beltway.

It is not even difficult, if one is honest, to understand the global nature of this. The World Economic Forum has not made a secret of its goals, goals presented to most of the world’s leaders, goals that seem to be progressing very nicely over the last year and a half.

The methodology compared to what has happened is easy to see. Objections based upon normalization bias are easy to overcome. The only question remains; what is to be done.

 

What to Do in the Consolidation Phase

If you pay attention, you cannot help but wonder, “How did Alex Jones know all this, years ago”? The guy went from being a joke in 2019 to a Nostradamus in 2021. But how?

The most logical answer is, he is part of it, he is playing a role. The old joke that if YouTube kicks you off you should build your own, Jones did just that. It seems comical, but ponder that. How did he know, almost step-by-step what was going to happen, how did he build a video platform that supports millions of views? The best lies have a lot of truth in them, you attract people with the truth and lead them astray with the lie.

Jones is not alone, not by a long shot. Q, BLM, ANTIFA, MAGA all have their lesser deities, folks like Jones. All of those have elements that indicate they were run as disinformation and PSYOP operations. People that know and say things, people that gain trust; many of these are not what they seem. You can, for instance, find many of the same voices that boosted Q and other obvious PSYOPs still active and drawing audiences, now boosting new influencers. To what end? The people that were ultimately behind Q (it was not a pig farmer at the top) did not just go away, that was state-actor level skills.

Here is just one twisted tale of how influencers, heroes, and people with platforms have misled thousands - by J.R. Nyquist

In a time of crisis, people seek answers and they seek heroes, they want hope. It is that desire and that promise that resulted in January 6th and provided those that want total control the pretext to begin the steps necessary to remove the possibility of resistance.

January 6th was not enough. It was not kinetic enough. It is absurd that they have people locked in solitary confinement for trespassing and ordinary people know that. Reasonable people see that. It was not big enough to be their Reichstag fire. They need another event.

Many influential voices are building toward that now. Jones will state on each show “humanity is doomed, but you can stop them if you act”. Others speak more subtly, but it is there to see. “We must act”. Many such voices are saying this now, almost in concert.

Unless they are actually working for the other side (and by that, I do not mean the political divide – and many seem to be compromised DISINFO agents) many making this call fail to realize the scope of the threat. They do not realize that we are in the consolidation phase and the oligarchy wants an overreaction. They want the pretext.

Historically, no nation has ever escaped a color revolution in the consolidation phase. This was the most advanced color revolution to date. Those are facts. These things can be and have been thrown off, but it takes years. The best advice we can seek is to look for new heroes, vet them better, and act only at a time and in ways that do not actually tighten out bonds.

Existential Moment in our Color Revolution

spider

Something about the Revolver News story implicating FBI involvement in the events of 1/6 in DC has troubled me deeply. Deeper than my realization last April that we were observing color revolution methodology being used on Americans inside the United States.

There is much we cannot know, we can only observe and speculate, and I will try here to merely observe and ask questions and leave out speculation. I am also not impugning either Tucker Carlson or Darren Beatle. I cannot know what I do not know about their intentions. But two significant questions immediately come to mind.

Color Revolution-  is a type of systemic political corruption in which private interests, often aligned with government officials, significantly influence a state's decision-making processes, subverting the rule of law and fundamentally altering both the balance of power and the ability of real opposition to compete politically. Propaganda, psychological operations, and controlled media are generally utilized. (more)

First, Darren Beattie was the first person I am aware of, that got traction with an audience, to come out last year with an observation that we were undergoing a color revolution. He was certainly not the first, his articles on the subject were about six months behind the first indicators, but he was the first to get national attention. He appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show and outlined his observations.

If one believes that it is true that color revolution methodology was in play, then it logically follows that the implications of that are enormous. Almost nothing else matters. A complex campaign, operating at the scale implied means state actor involvement, it means significant portions of the government are involved and major institutions (like media) are also involved in some way. If one looks at all the dots, sees the connection, and then sees the methodology being applied in almost doctrinal precision, it is impossible to come away with anything more than a sense of shock and awe. None of the small details matter beyond supporting and building the narrative that this was occurring and occurred.

Yet, soon after Beatie made the rounds and Twitter focused on the subject for a bit, with instant experts in geopolitics and color revolutions pontificating, it all went away. He essentially stopped talking about the elephant in the room. [see 1 below]

Second, and do not take me wrong I enjoy Tucker’s presentations, if we go back and survey all of the fantastical stories he has covered in the last 20 months (strange finance paths, riots, corruption, lies, fraud, etc.) and throw in the fact that Beattie was on his show last year talking about how all the dots connect (color revolution) it is more than curious that Carlson never actually makes the connection. Each night he presents a very entertaining segment that deals with one matter, one issue, he often seems shocked and aghast, and outraged. But should he be?  If one really understands the methodology of state capture, should one be shocked by the details?

So, I was particularly stunned watching Beattie and Carlson talk about 1/6 and the accusations that the FBI was doing something behind the scenes and probably had some foreknowledge. It takes active denial to not admit that the FBI has done similar things for a long time (not at this scale, but the same methods - infiltrate a group with compromised people, encourage the group to go forward with bad plans). Any honest person knows that. Carlson knows what Beattie said last year about color revolutions.

Why did these two men sit and talk, Carlson looking shocked, about 1/6 when they had both already talked about the metanarrative?  It was odd and disturbing.

To be fair, one can make the argument that Tucker has corporate masters. Beattie maybe believes the full truth is too much for ordinary Americans to swallow. You can make that argument and I cannot dispel it.

You could also make the argument that this looks a lot like a limited hangout. We cannot know the purpose, perhaps it is to release obvious information in such a way that it can be debunked, that is a traditional usage. Maybe it is intended to spin up many Americans and call them to injudicious action, an action that can be easily crushed and then used as justification for more draconian laws.

What is obvious is that Carlson’s and Beattie’s suggested solution, a Church 2.0 committee is unworkable and naive (argument here). That being said, in their defense, what other choice, short of foolish kinetics, do we have? It is a sticky problem, and there is no real solution, we are in the web, every action merely entraps us more.

Limited hangout: "spy jargon for a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting—sometimes even volunteering—some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further."

In another interview on another outlet Beattie said until this is resolved, nothing else matters, all of politics will simply be performative. In that, he is absolutely correct. If we have undergone a color revolution, if significant portions of the government played a key role and the media supported it, nothing else matters or will matter. Not elections, Congressional hearings, Supreme Court decisions – none of it. If this happened, and if elements within the national security apparatus conspired and acted to incite violence as a culminating event to the color revolution – nothing else matters until those responsible are rooted out.

The problem is, in the consolidation phase of a color revolution, after most of the population did not even realize what was happening it is nearly impossible to turn the tide. That is the reality we face. We are in the web, we walked straight into a L-shaped ambush.

Our moment of existential choice has passed I am afraid.

[1] Let's circle back to that brief moment last year on Twitter and in the news cycle where folks talked about "color revolution".  As mentioned above it came into the conversation after Darren Beattie published a piece on Revolver and went on the talk news circuit, specifically Tucker Carlson. I recall waking up the next day to amazement that my little blog was getting so much search traffic, specifically to color revolution articles I had previously written. Prior to that, it was a mere trickle.

On Twitter, there were numerous instant 'experts', many that had never heard the term before or perhaps only in passing. Few really understood the full methodology and all the tools in the kit bag. Almost all of the folks that latched on to the subject were Trump supporters. They mistook the implications and thought this was all just about 'libs and MAGA' and some plan to 'get Trump'. Invariably, the fact-checkers soon weighed in, debunking the possibility that such a thing could be happening here "look how outrageous these Trump people are". Soon, talk of color revolutions died out, people went on to new shiny topics, abandoning the metanarrative.

Of course what happened and is still happening was never really about Trump. Either he was too incompetent to see that many of his decisions and policies enabled the event (CR), or he was part of it, there is no other reasonable explanation. He was a dupe or a tool, take your pick, but either way, the color revolution would never have succeeded without key actions by him.

This brings us to ask the question...was the public talk of a color revolution part of a limited hangout, intended to give bad meat to the masses to run with and make fools of themselves with, something later debunked by the media? There were people talking about it and highlighting the use of methodology, long before Beattie. Eventually, this truth was going to come out. Was the flash in the pan an effort to get in front of that and let it burn out in foolish misunderstanding?

I cannot say, but it seems odd, particularly considering that Beattie essentially abandoned the topic soon after.

 

 

Why 2020/21; Why Now?

yuri

 

If many are correct and America has undergone a color revolution, it is fair to ask why now, why in 2020/21.

First a couple of notes

  • I will reference both classic and cultural Marxist thinkers and events, what is going on is not either, these ideologies were simply used and leveraged.
  • I am only focusing on meta-dots, and one area specifically. It is not insignificant that much of the same thing is happening across the West, however, the U.S. is both unique and important in this event.
  • I have intentionally avoided some of the more esoteric elements of this. There is truth to many of those threads, but not necessary to paint part of the big picture.
  • I have also avoided the long history of this, it would belabor the point. I touch on the longer view here.

A summary of what I assess has occurred:

America just underwent a color revolution. 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, a color revolution in an advanced form.

But why, how, why now.

  • We could begin with Antonio Gramsci, and perhaps more importantly people that amplified his theories of cultural Marxism. One of the ideas that emerged from that circle was the notion of the necessity to ‘march through the institutions’ in order to replace an existing hegemony. Many in this group began to theorize in the early twentieth century that it would take about 100 years to accomplish this.
  • Also, in the second decade of the twentieth century, American socialists like William English Walling theorized that socialism could only come to America through progressivism. (read The Socialists and the War, I wrote about that previously here.)

At this point fast forward through the implementation of socialist policies in the 1930s, a repudiation of classical Marxism by the post-moderns in the 1950s, and a resurgence of socialists social and economic policies in the 1960s

  • Enter Saul Alinsky and his seminal tome Rules for Radicals. This book served as the basis for the entire battle-plan of the radical left in the cultural war (a key component in neutering the hegemony).
  • We must remember the words of Yuri Bezmenov, KGB propagandists turned defector, warning that in Soviet doctrine it took twenty years to educate a generation for compliance. He warned that the main event was proceeded (about twenty-years) before by a major event. (listen here)
  • Without delving into all the esoteric talk about who knew what when related to 9/11 two facts are true. 1) it was twenty years ago and 2) that event was formative in the lives of millennials and older GEN-Y. Their worldview was significantly shaped by that event. The implementation of the Patriot Act, TSA, and all the wars shaped us all.
  • If you accept any think of Strauss and Howe’s generational theory (The Fourth Turning), you realize we are inside the window for a fourth turning. This is America’s fourth, fourth turning, each has moved the ball a bit further down the field toward a bigger crisis.
  • We cannot forget Peter Drucker and his theories of social change through communitarianism (and his early exposure to philosophers and political thinkers later used by the NAZIs). The Leadership Network in the 1990s fundamentally changed American evangelical Christianity (The Megachurch’s Role in the Cultural Revolution)
  • Planning for the ‘pandemic began before 2001, all of the lockdowns of 2020 were plans on a shelf.
  • Numerous ‘thinkers’ have openly talked about their goals for 2030, those goals were unachievable without a significant change in governance.

In summary, this moment has been building since the early 1900s, ideology changed and adapted but the central theme remained. Events twenty years ago placed in motion a series of events that led to other events that created division and chaos, (financial crash, reactionary pendulum swings to Obama and then Trump). This all leveraged the natural tensions that arise generationally in cycles. The methodologies of information operations, psychological operations, color revolution, and state capture have been used and refined over numerous iterations in other nations (our intelligence community has become expert practitioners).

Just looking at the meta-dots, looking at the nature of the thing we can see that all of this was not just by chance. 2020 was not just a target of opportunity.

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.

 

China, the Election, and the Color Revolution

It was, perhaps, a forgone conclusion that China would rise to the status of peer-competitor with the US. It was not a foregone conclusion that Americans and American institutions would aid that rise.

China has a long history and memory. It enjoys almost an almost homogeneous ethnic population. It has industrious people and they are many. It enjoys access to numerous resources. Over the last decade-plus, its geopolitical efforts have ensured access to ports, markets, and additional resources. (see previous summary of why China knows it is destined to greatness).

We learn just this week that a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Eric Swalwell, apparently received funding and had carried on an intimate relationship with a Chinese spy. Swalwell was of course one of the key members of the chorus that sang tales of Russia and Ukrainian collusion for nearly four-years. This is not unique to Swalwell, Feinstein had a Chinese spy on her staff for years. The Swalwell incident is, however, more pronounced. A young attractive female shows up with money and sex, Swalwell in his capacity on the Intelligence Committee received numerous briefings on counter-intelligence. A guy with a melon head and crooked mouth ought to have noticed a honey-pot when it tried to seduce him.  Any intelligent person with knowledge of sources and methods would have. Swalwell was briefed, many times; he knew better.

Yet, it is not just Swalwell. We might attribute his collusion with foreign enemies as merely the failings of weak moral character – the old “cannot keep it in one’s pants defense”; maybe.

We have now video proof that Chinese inside the party apparatus claim openly that the reach of the CCP into the bastions of power in the US is wide-reaching, intentional, and integral to China's long game. John Zimrak points out:

The speaker is not some fevered crank, or even a Chinese dissident embittered by the totalitarian government’s religious repression, forced abortions, and concentration camps. No, it’s Di Dongsheng, Vice Dean of the School of International Relations, Renmin University of China. He serves as Vice Director and Secretary of the Center for Foreign Strategic Studies of China.

Those are bold words, spoken openly to an audience that is apparently in the know. Americans that have made the same claim about China and its involvement, schemes, nefarious activities, and hegemonic goals have been labeled over the years as “conspiracy theorist” by our own media and geopolitical and intelligence ‘experts’. When we pull the onion back and begin to breathe in the full scope of the vast web of money, influence, and cooperation between institutions, corporations, and many within our government that seek personal gain we begin to understand why ‘elites’ in the US deny these facts and ‘elites’ in China know it as an open secret.

Zimrak goes further, asserting “that in every way, the COVID crisis has proven to be a massively successful biowarfare attack against the United States (and other countries) by China.” Many others have made that argument, all denounced or relegated to the corner and silenced. I have argued the same thing since April (our response was scripted by Alinsky, the gain of function element, and COVIDs role in the Color Revolution).

None of this seems unrelated. Darren J. Beattie, Ph.D. Is the man that deserves the most credit for placing the term ‘Color Revolution’ into the common vernacular in 2020. He was not the first to write about what was going on or to see the connections of trees to the forest, but he wrote a series of articles that gained traction and occupied some time on news outlets discussing the concept. Oddly enough, now that we are in the final stages of what we must now clearly describe as a color revolution (see an explanation of the term here) Beattie has made recent statements effectively denouncing those that point to China as having any relevance. Beattie must know that all previous color revolutions have been carried out through a combination of elements external and internal to the target nation.

Beattie did not respond to efforts to ask clarifying questions on his recent statements. It is, however, disconcerting that the one man that is now known as the ‘expert’ on the subject by most that only heard the term a couple of months ago would say things, even if nuanced, that would dissuade the masses from seeing 2020 as it truly is.

We have seen the capture of fake ID’s inbound to the US from China in July (link), 10,800 assault weapons parts from china seized (link), and 28 million in gold bars smuggled in from China in Aug (link) just the things we have caught and seen are enough to make one notice rising smoke.

In 2020 we witnessed that journalism in the main is dead and cold, left as an empty carcass capable only of disseminating disinformation and feverishly working to suppress the truth. Most of the media says nothing of China other than to 'debunk' legitimate stories and concerns. Why? How far do the effects of money and Chinese influence operations go?

Color Revolutions always center on elections, disputed results, and a culminating event. In the initial stages, the focus is on fear, confusion, disinformation, and chaos. The culminating event is always an attempt to hijack the narrative and then seize control, under the color of law and the promise of a return to normalcy.

No honest American, that has seen with their own eyes the events of 2020 unfold, can say with certitude that we are not in the midst of a color revolution. No honest American, seeing all the connection to, subtle involvement by and benefit by China can say with certainty that they are not involved.

Color Revolution and Fifth Generation Warfare (5GW)

Make no mistake, this is a color revolution (explanation of the term here) many pundits and social media 'experts' throw that term about now, here so late in 2020. Almost all of them failed to read the signs in January when some of us warned that something big was up, not just politics as usual. They will move on to the the next big term soon as they have yet to fully put all the pieces of the puzzle together. This is a far advanced version of color revolutions conducted in Ukraine, Georgia, and the middle east; technology, tactics, techniques, and capability have advanced. A paradigm shift has occurred, we have transitioned into fifth-generation warfare (5GW). We have been at war since 2016, perhaps since 2014 (as soon as the cold war that we called the cultural war was lost). This is a war for perception, perception that is shaped by a narrative and essentially defines reality for those that succumb to mass deception. The nation-state itself is the objective and because so many subsidiary institutions that are supposed to support and defend the nation-state and order have been usurped as part of 5GW, the nation is almost powerless to fend off attacks.

The Great Reset: How We Got Here

Herein is a collection of videos and resources that assist in explaining how we arrived in 2020 at the point that we were susceptible to a Color Revolution, poised on the verge of a Civil War and many now clamor for a Great Reset. Many otherwise intelligent people have been deceived, confused and absolutely wrong this year, never seeing the forest for the trees, unable to see that all of the troubles, chaos, and issues were related and all pushed us toward the 'need' for a draconian solution.

Analysis of current trajectory toward a Great Reset

Ten part series that details much of the organized effort by communitarians, communist, socialist, and their allies progressives to move the West and the world toward a naturalistic, centralized, and ultimately authoritarian system. 

This is a must-see, Yuri Bezmenov was a KGB propagandist and defector. He lays out in this video the methods used by international communism, to subvert and supplant governments in the West.

Do you remember those 'crazy' Birchers? It seems they too were not wrong.

The following is a promotional/propaganda video from the World Economic Forum. They are not even hiding their goals anymore. All of those 'conspiracy theorists' that called out Davos and the Bilderberg Group were not wrong about at least this portion of their agenda.

Speaking of conspiracy guys - here is one that called out the plan and objectives of the globalist for thirty years (with shocking accuracy). This loud, obnoxious, and over the top guy got many of the players, events, and circumstances of 2020 right, the folks he has called out are saying the quiet parts out loud now.

 

Jones is whack-a-doodle, easily deceived and often wrong...but the video below gets a lot right.

Christians ought not worry, this was all prophesized. You ought to take an honest look at your church, your heart and your own discernment. Almost all of the major denominations proved themselves to be tragically flawed in 2020, falling for pieces and parts of the deception that has brought us here. If your pastor twisted scripture to tell you that a communist and racist organization was worthy of support (BLM) or that this was all just a moment and that trusting the authorities was wise, then they failed to lead.

Stop listening to those flawed and often false preachers, they were deceived this year and deceived their flocks!

Perhaps also, if you see this all now as the manifestation of Biblical prophecy, I would suggest you not jump too fast on the hope of a rapture in the near future. What if all this plays out slowly, and we and subsequent generations live through the emergence of an all-powerful government? What if it takes a hundred years for this to fully play out? We were promised persecution (hated for his namesake) for being true followers, not prosperity. We still live in this world, we still have responsibilities.

What is going to be will be. Politics cannot stop this all, if God wills it we perhaps could slow it down, delay it for a few generations. Evil is on a timeline, it knows its time is limited. It has polluted all of the institutions we are supposed to be able to trust (media, education, religion, and government). A vast swath of our population lives each day under a polluted worldview. Many wolves wear sheep's clothing in places we expect otherwise. The very best we can do now is to take care of our own.

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.
