This SitRep is critical and I am asking you to read it in its entirety. Please feel free to pass it on to those who you feel will benefit from it.
This SitRep differs slightly from most of my previous SitReps in that I provide some pretty specific suggestions in the Summary / Action Plan section.
It’s been 2-1/2 months since my last SitRep…and I write this one with all seriousness and deliberation. Please don’t take it lightly…or worse yet, disregard it all together.
The topics I will cover in this SitRep are:
- Civil Rights
- Civil Liberties
- Civil Society
- Civil War
- The Plague
First off… civil rights is equal social opportunities and equal protection under the law. And that concept comes straight from the Declaration of Independence –
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
The US does have a history of not fully implementing that concept. However, in the mid-1960’s that implementation was finally codified. Unfortunately, some folks have not actually accepted that…and in some strange ways. First off, there is prejudice in the US…many flavors of it. But the worst possible example of it is our two-tier legal system. There is no question that those with power and money tend to fair far better in the legal system, especially the judicial system, than regular folks and especially lower income folks. Politicians and the super-rich tend to be almost immune at times to prosecution for their criminal behavior. And certainly we have seen that the Department of Justice has been used as a weapon against citizens more times than we care to think about.
Now we are seeing a two-prong approach to the demand for civil rights. First are those who feel they have a legitimate claim to correct present and past injustices. Right or wrong, their claims are heartfelt and sincere. Then there is the second prong…dark and sinister. They are those that wish to use the legitimacy of actual civil rights abuses and the civil rights movement for their own benefit…their quest for power and money. They are the ones who take a peaceful protest for justice and protection from abuse…and then turn it into a cesspool of anarchy with violence, looting, destruction, and wanton disregard for everything that is good in our society.
All the while the primary violation of civil rights, a two-tier legal system, continues its march into the abyss unabated.
First off…civil liberties include the freedom of conscience, freedom of press, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, the right to security and liberty, freedom of speech, the right to privacy, the right to equal treatment under the law and due process, the right to a fair trial, and the right to life. In other words, freedom from arbitrary interference in one’s pursuits by individuals or by government. This concept also comes straight from the Declaration of Independence –
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
We now see a two-prong attack against civil liberties. Wait, don’t get confused. We know that governments (local, state, and federal) have been infringing upon our civil liberties for a very long time. It became pervasive and virtually unrestrained about 120 years ago with the advent of the Progressive movement. And please don’t get tangled up in unreality…Republicans have done little to nothing to protect our civil rights. And in many cases they have done far more damage to our civil rights than the Progressives. And essentially Republicans are Progressives as well…just a slightly different flavor. And Progressives love authoritarianism.
Back to the two-pronged attack upon civil liberties…
The government attack is plain to understand and easy to see. Their motive is just as obvious…their quest for totalitarianism. But, what/who is behind the second prong? You already know the answer to that. The ruling class…also known as the “elites.” There is a long list of participants in that group, chief among them is the media (i.e. print media, TV, etc.). But that list also includes the super-rich and the old money families. Recent additions are tech corporations such as Google, Facebook, Instagram, etc.
All of the second prong wish to see the elimination of civil liberties. Meaning;
- Limitations on free speech through the elimination of anything they deem to be “hate speech” or even “hurtful speech.”
- Limitation on religion through the elimination of religious practices or symbols from the public space and even limitations of the same in the private space.
- They have already waged a successful campaign against the right to life.
- They also use one crisis after another to eliminate the right to assemble…especially for religious purposes.
- They have virtually eroded any hope of due process when a person, or company, runs afoul of their principles.
I could go on and on but you are already all to familiar with their activity in destroying the very foundations of civil liberties.
First off…civil society is seen also as a “normal” concept of civic values. In other words, a shared set of norms and ethics (i.e. good and evil), in which free citizens on an equal footing live under the rule of law.
Let’s work over the government, all government first. Can you show me any level of government where they adhere to a decent standard of ethics? How about equal footing under the law? How about the rule of law? Yeah, I didn’t think so. In today’s world we see politicians get away with unspeakable acts of criminal behavior. We see massive corporations allowed to run amuck while politicians receive huge campaign donations from those same companies. We see government treat citizens more like serfs than citizens with God-given, Constitutionally guaranteed rights. We see all too often weaponized bureaucracy.
Then there are individuals, and tribes of like-minded individuals, who intentionally destroy any semblance of norms or ethics. They refuse to accept the reasons for fences before tearing them down. They demand preferential treatment, all the while trampling on the rights of others.
No, a civil society in America is long gone.
A civil war is an intense conflict, often involving regular armed forces, that is sustained, organized and large-scale. Well, it’s here!
We’ve been in a “soft” civil war for the better part of 20 years. It began in earnest after 9/11/2001 when the Republican Conservatives, with the help of Progressives, implemented the Patriot Act, gave massive amounts of power to the NSA, and added to the already anti-Constitutional NDAA . And have no doubt…it is has been getting worse ever since.
But, we’ve seen a dramatic escalation in our civil war…and that has been going on intensely since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the USA. I am referring to two aspects of the civil war in particular; 1) the dramatic assault of civil liberties by all levels of government, 2) the outbreak of violence by the anarchist arm of the Progressive movement.
And as #2 increased we saw a dramatic and anti-Constitutional response by government. As the outbreak of violence occurred and increased the police should have been activated to deal properly with the criminals. However, what we saw was abhorrent. Rather than arrest looters and those destroying both public and private property we saw law enforcement use excessive force against peaceful protestors. We saw journalists targeted and assaulted…some gassed, some shot, some illegally arrested. Then we saw politicians and law enforcement allow violence to increase to the point where military troops were placed on the streets of America.
The Insurrection Act of 1807 is authority for the President and/or Congress to mobilize the military in the during an instance of citizens rising in revolt, rebellion, or resistance against civil authority or an established government. Kind of interesting considering the specific wording of the Declaration of Independence…
“But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”
Most normal, average, people would see insurrection as being rebellion, trying to overthrow the federal government. However, interestingly enough insurrection now means any opposition to government authority…including protests.
Now, some folks might think there is protection through a federal statute known as the Posse Comitatus Act, enacted in 1878, which forbids the use of the US Army for domestic law enforcement purposes without the approval of Congress. Since the US Air Force derived from the US Army, the courts have found that the Act also applies directly to the Air Force as well. Interesting that it wasn’t until 2013 that a directive of the Secretary of Defense included the US Navy and the Marine Corps.
But don’t be fooled…there is NO protection from the US military being used against US civilians in regards to domestic law enforcement. All the President has to do is invoke the Insurrection Act and US military troops flood the streets of America and the the Posse Comitatus Act become null and void.
And we have seen that in the last few months…and we will see more of it.
And let me be clear…while the Founding Fathers saw the evils of authoritarian governments, they also outlined the right and duty to overthrow those governments in the Declaration of Independence. And the Founders, once the American Revolution was won and our freedom assured…those same Founders enshrined certain rights and limitations on government within the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Within a few short years politicians and government bureaucrats began to whittle away at the rights of citizens to have a government by the people and for the people. They forgot a keystone to America…
“…to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”
Now, there is also another aspect to the Civil War taking place in America today…Cultural War. We saw this during the Communist revolution in Russia as they tried to eliminate all vestiges of their history. Then again we saw Communist China implement their cultural revolution. But, the most striking example of culture warfare, and the closest example to what is happening in America today, is what happened in territory controlled by Islamic extremists/terrorists…also know as ISIS. From 2013 – 2017, under the guise of religion, ISIS followers destroyed anything of historic value that didn’t conform to their radical interpretation of their religious beliefs. We are seeing the same thing in America…but it isn’t ISIS here, it is AntiFa, anarchists, Progressives, Democrats. And they are trying to destroy America’s history…anything that doesn’t conform to their interpretation of their radical and extremist political views.
The cultural war in America is a subset of the civil war taking place. It is just as violent and destructive as we’ve seen previously in history…just as radical, just as extreme, and for the same end goal.
I love it!! A couple of weeks ago I heard a Trump spokesman rave about the historic number of new jobs created. They gloated and pontificated on that accomplishment. Interesting…the US population loses nearly 50million jobs and falls to historic, Depression Era level of unemployment and some nitwit makes it sound like adding 2.5million jobs (5% of the jobs lost in the previous 4 months) is some amazing feat of genius economic engineering. And the media let them get away with that bragging…and they forgot to mention one minor detail…there were approximately 5.5 million people that filed first time unemployment claims during that same time period that only 2.5million people found a job. So more than twice as many people lose their job as find one…and this administration forgets to mention it…and essentially ignores it…while spewing economic propaganda. Have we become that collectively stupid? Or do they just think we have?
Now, normally I would not point it out, worry about it, or bring it to your attention. But for this SitRep I must. Why? Because the economy is in terrible, horrible, shape!!
Just in the last 10 days several major restaurant chains are looking at, or have started, bankruptcy proceedings. We are talking Checkers, Chuck E. Cheese, Steak and Shake, and several other name brand franchises. This adds to a long list of earlier bankruptcies and door closings. Brick and mortar retailers are being decimated. And it will get worse.
The government is readying another stimulus round including direct payments to citizens. Would they being doing that is the economic numbers were good? Of course not. The economy is in terrible condition and a poor outlook indeed.
Just a little side note…have you noticed some businesses have experienced “cash” shortages and have reduced the number of electronic cashiers that will accept cash or give change? Yup, the Fed has acknowledged that there is a cash shortage. They say is is due to the mints having problems producing coinage and paper money…and people hoarding cash. And if you are wondering what they think…they let this little tidbit slip out when answering questions on the shortages, “…it’s not necessarily a bad thing to move away from physical cash and coins…”
Oh boy! A topic sure to stir the pot, ruffle some feathers, rock the boat…and all the other appropriate clichés. But, there is a bottom line here…our country is headed for a political nuclear bomb. I’ve explained it before in general terms, let me restate:
- Both political parties are preparing their constituents to claim “fraud” or “outside influence” if their candidate loses.
- Die-hard Republicans think their candidate can’t lose. Nothing could be further from the truth. Trump is in real and serious trouble. The numbers can/do lie, but there comes a point where some truth cane be seen because the numbers become so overwhelming. Trump is twice as far behind Biden as he was behind Clinton. And don’t forget…Trump lost the popular vote by the millions. And several key states have changed their Electoral College voting process so their delegates must cast their Electoral College votes for candidate who won the popular vote. Trump has far more going against him than for him. And that is especially true according to the poll numbers in swing states he won last time.
- Die-hard Democrats know that Biden can’t win. First of all, Biden in in a diminished mental state and getting worse. He also has a horrific history of being a sexual “creep” that will surface even more so in the general election campaigning. Biden can’t even begin to rise to a level sufficient to debate Trump. Trump will make him look like some kind of mentally incompetent fool that can’t form a cohesive sentence. But, trust me…the Democrats have a plan…and it ain’t Biden.
- Those that wish to further their anti-Constitutional, authoritarian agenda are planning to use the COVID-19 plague to their advantage this election cycle. It is called “mail in ballots” and it is proven to be corrupt in every aspect. And they will use it to their gain. But, their true purpose may not to be simply to win the election. While backing vote-by-mail, they will also seed dissent that there is wide-spread fraud in the process by both sides. That will in-turn create even more division between members of the political parties and it will create a sense of election by fraud regardless of who wins the Presidency. And that my friends serves their purposes quite nicely…further dividing America…and creating the fertile ground for violence.
- The Republicans stand a very high chance of losing control of the Senate. I believe that is a done deal unless an unexpected event occurs to change that outcome. If the Democrats win the Senate then America is in horrible shape. Yes, even if the Republicans win the Presidency. If Trump wins reelection and the Dems control Congress…then they will stop Trump at every turn, investigate ad nauseam, and cause mayhem whenever possible to create an environment in which to impeach Trump. If Trump loses and a Democrat gains the Whitehouse and the Dems control Congress…God help us! And I mean that sincerely…only God will be able to help us if the Democrats take control of the government. Their radical extremist ideology will crush us.
We know that COVID-19 is in its third major mutation. The first was relatively harmless, at least in terms of fatality. But, the two major mutations that it has gone through now makes it far more transmittable, more contagious. However, it is not more lethal. Actually, originally only about 2% of all deaths attributed to COVID-19 were actually COVID-19 deaths…the other 98% had co-morbidity. Meaning that the patient likely died from a major health condition (i.e. heart disease, respiratory distress, diabetes, etc.) vs from COVID-19. Lately the experts are stating that the number of people that actually have is 10 times higher than first expected. That means the mortality rate is actually 1/10th as bad as previously reported. So the true fatality rate may be in the area of .002 – .01% range.
Unfortunately we will never know the true figures/statistics because the government and health care profession have so perversely corrupted the real numbers that the truth will never be known.
But this is a fact for sure…the government is using this plague crisis to their full advantage!
Just one simple example…CBD shops have been allowed to remain open, Walmart has been allowed to be open, as well as other businesses and government offices. But…churches were ordered shut down and police patrolled church parking lots throughout the country looking for folks trying to exercise their First Amendment right to freedom of religion.
And you guys have seen terrible, horrific examples of government abusing citizens and business all in the name of enforcing executive orders restricting, and in some cases eliminating, Constitutionally guaranteed rights.
Those things have not occurred unintentionally.
Summary and Action Plan
Civil rights, civil liberties, a civil society, and the economy have suffered immeasurably in the last 6 months.
Civil war broke out and will get worse. I am telling you, warning you, that there is going to be a slingshot effect. We have seen AntiFa, mainstream Democrats, liberals, and Progressives take to the streets in the worst of anarchist examples. They have looted, destroyed, attacked, taken over public spaces, and caused mayhem throughout the country. We have seen police and the military react in the most un-American fashion shooting peaceful protestors, gassing others, and illegally arresting and harassing journalists to name just a few of their reprehensible acts. And all the while allowing stores to be looted and burned, citizens to be attacked, parts of entire cities to be taken over. And worse of all examples of despicable acts…refuse to answer 911 calls for help like they did in Atlanta. We’ve see police officers ambushed, murdered in cold blood, by those claiming to be warriors of social justice…all the while they are actually nothing but psychopathic killers.
We’ve seen politicians encourage illegal and un-American behavior…even walking with those monsters to show their support. And worse of all…standing by, even supporting, the destruction of statues, monuments, and memorials. And have no doubt…this is intentional and deliberate. How so?
Remember a couple of things; 1) Obama ran on a platform to “fundamentally change America”, 2) his wife Michelle stated “…we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history…” Don’t think for a minute those were casual words or political slogans. They were telling us exactly what was coming…the Progressive agenda. An agenda that has been in-place and in process for 120 years. Don’t doubt them! They simply voiced what the Progressives have been doing for a very long time. And as we see the destruction of memorial, monuments, and statues…we see the violent manifestation of Michelle’s words, “…we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history…” And they are doing it violently through absolute destruction of history…and demonetization of all who would attempt defense of history. Behaving just as ISIS did during their reign of terror.
Let there be no doubt…civil war has broken out and it is violent. Can it get worse? Yes! Let me explain…it will probably come in its most virulent form from the law & order extremists…and the ignorant. Meaning this…the “slingshot effect.” We see violence, destruct, war, and other despicable acts taking place. We have also seen the beginnings of non-official opposition. Some store owners and some homeowners took up arms and defended their property. Good on them!!!! They are acting within their God-given, Constitutionally protected rights. But, there is more developing…stewing in the pot…bubbling right below the surface…armed non-official opposition that will turn violent.
Who are they?
Some are called militias…unfortunately. Some are called by other names. Some are loosely associated individuals. Many are backed directly, or indirectly by the same people who are fostering the current destruction and anarchy. At some point the opposition groups and/or individuals will fight back, open fire, strike out…and it goes bad, really bad, from there.
I spoke with a reliable source who has been looking into this and he confirmed that he knows of a radical racial group who have armed up and looking to strike out at anyone who is not of their race. And several groups are growing intolerant of their taunting. Violent conflict between the two groups is inevitable.
And it is worse…there are some well-intentioned folks who are joining militias, or forming armed groups for defense…and the stories continue. The problem lies not with their intentions of the good folks, but the actions, intentional or inadvertent, that will escalate this low-level civil war.
And I am telling you without reservation…this is a civil war.
What actions should you take? You probably already have a pretty good idea. But let me make some suggestions:
- Implement a plan to fill any holes in your emergency preparations based on the 7 Common Risks & Threats.
- Do NOT join any militia of any kind, or any group that vocally expresses blanket support for police.
- Do look for Peace Officers who respect and honor the Constitution…in good times and bad. Then tell them you appreciate them and stand by them when the time comes…and the time will come.
- Do NOT generally talk to folks about forming any armed group.
- Stay very aware of what is happening in your community. Keep your Situation Awareness at its peak.
- Stay off social media where controversial topics are discussed such as militias, armed resistance, etc.
- Read, understand, and use all of my Immediate Action Warnings that I have produced since the beginning of 2020.
- Have discussions with your neighbors to get an idea of where they are with everything that is happening.
- Prepare for the potential second wave of COVID-19 this fall.
- Prepare for increased violence when/if colleges and schools reopen.
- Prepare for a horrific Presidential campaign season.
- Prepare for the fallout from whoever wins the election…especially if the Dems sweep Congress and the Whitehouse.
- Hone your critical thinking skills and dig for accurate information…distrust the media and distrust all social media even more…especially prepper social media websites.
- Push to reopen churches and religious practices wherever and whenever possible.
- Support your local businesses whenever practical.
- Avoid Facebook, Instagram, Google and other big tech firms as much as you can.
Most of all…get ready! Yes, get ready…period! There is an underlying violence bubbling beneath our feet. Our society is under attack, it is being destroyed, the American way is being trashed and decimated. Our history and our culture is all but gone in many respects…and all of it is under attack. And it is all by design.
Those that wish for an authoritarian government are winning and will win if we are not vigilant in every aspect of the word. With opposing sides, multi-faceted, pitted against each other…and violently so…there is only one winner. And that winner is the group that wishes to see a totalitarian state…with themselves as the ruling class. And yes, that means the rest of us simply will be serfs providing for their every whim.
Now, I would encourage you to prepare to defend yourself, your family, your property, and your community. I would also suggest you consider that you defend physical representations of our history and culture…but do so 100% non-violently. Yes, non-violently. Here’s why…let’s say you decide that you will defend a monument erected for a local hero that has been targeted for destruction by the Progressive anarchists. Do not take a weapon with you. Join others and surround the monument/statue and do not let the criminals near it. If they attack…DO NOT use a weapon to defend yourself. Have people there with video and audio capability to record what happens. Allow the police to intervene and do their job. If they don’t…then you have gathered very valuable additional intelligence on your community. Then prepare and react accordingly.
Am I panicking or trying to cause a sense of panic in you…or even trying to raise the collective stress level? You know me better than that! I am not.
What I am trying to do is give you my best “read’ on what is happening and will probably happen in the coming days, weeks, and months. I did that back in the first month of 2017 with the coup against Trump, I did that in the weeks before things got violently ugly this year. I have providing actionable intelligence to you for years…and have been generally spot on. This SitRep is in that same vain…prepare for what is coming…and it is coming. Some sooner than later.
Please don’t get caught unprepared!
