This article is Part #2 of a 3 part SitRep. If you have not read Part #1 (published yesterday) please go read it first <click here to read it>
In yesterday’s article I covered:
- The Economy
- Civil Society
- Politics (which includes the upcoming Presidential election)
This article will cover the “X-Factors”, the convergence point, and the beginning of a Call to Action.
The X-Factors –
OK, you should be ready for me to share my opinion on the “X-Factor” thing about now. I’ve held you in suspense long enough.
The great plague of 2020 (COVID-19) is one of the biggest farces ever thrust upon the US citizens. No, not the health condition per se, because there is a health problem called COVID-19, but how governments at all levels used it against citizens. But let’s review the facts first:
- COVID-19 is a form of coronavirus. Simply another strain of a virus that we’ve known about for something like 70 years.
- Studies have proven that only about 2% of all patients whose death has been attributed to COVID-19 have actually died from COVID-19. Yes, that means approximately 98% of all deaths attributed to COVID-19 have not died from COVID-19. The 98%’ers all had serious, life-threatening, major underlying health problems, and they died from one of those conditions but they also happened to have COVID-19 present as well. Actually…that is not entirely true. A percentage of those deaths where COVID-19 was claimed as cause of death were in patients who only exhibited COVID-19 symptoms, they were never tested. And we know that somewhere between 20% – 40% of all positive COVID-19 test results are “false positives.” We also know that some health officials have outright lied. For instance…in July COVID-19 was listed as the cause of death for a man who perished in a motorcycle accident. Yup, died from the trauma due to a motorcycle accident and he was listed as a COVID-19 fatality.
- Mask wearing has been proven effective in fighting the spread of COVID-19. Mask wearing has been proven ineffective in fighting the spread of COVID-19. Wearing some masks have been proven effective in fighting the spread of COVID-19. Other masks have proven ineffective in fighting the spread of COVID-19. So why all the confusion and contradictory information, especially from experts?
Wearing of masks over time has actually been proven to be detrimental to a person’s health. Rebreathing of carbon dioxide that the body natural tries to expel is damaging to the body. Rebreathing germs, viruses, and bacteria not properly expelled due to wearing a mask has also been proven to be unhealthy and damaging to a person’s health. So tell me again why various levels of government are mandating the wearing of masks? And why are some levels of government making it a criminal act to now not wear a mask in pubic or in school?
- And help me understand why furniture stores were allowed to be open to the public and churches were not allowed to hold services? Tell me again why fast food places were allowed to have their drive through windows or walk up counters open for business but churches weren’t even allowed to have worship services with congregations in their cars in their parking lots? Tell me again why at least one governor sent the state police out to record the license plates of parishioners who went to church. Oh, and later sent them citations.
So X-Factor #1 is the chaos of the COVID-19 situation and its use as a weaponized health condition to train citizens to be controlled, to comply.
To fully understand this X-Factor we have to be able to agree on, or at least understand, how governments work. Governments are supposed to be formed and exist to ensure/guarantee God-given rights and protect its citizens from threats (foreign and domestic). In exchange citizens agree to support and sustain the law…becoming and exist as a civil society with rights, freedoms, and liberties.
However, we have seen throughout history that governments never stay within their “lane.” Meaning, just as with individuals, governments also lust for power and money. We sadly see that governments, once formed, quickly begin a quest to acquire more and more power.
Unfortunately power is something that only one of two of these entities can have at any given time. We know that ALL power/rights originates from God. We also know that God-given rights (natural rights) belong to people as individuals…rights are not governments’ to give. As individuals we willingly assign some of those rights/power to government in exchange for some specific limited benefits. Governments’ power come from its citizens.
Example: Individuals voting for representatives (Congress) and then empowering them to act on their behalf when creating laws. That transfers some power from individuals to the government, but it takes place voluntarily.
Unfortunately, once power is tasted, governments begin to lust for more power and begin to take power from individuals vs. individuals voluntarily transferring/assigning power.
Example: US Federal income tax forcibly takes money from citizens without their consent with the threat of imprisonment if the citizenry doesn’t comply.
As governments take more and more power, without sufficient opposition from citizens (i.e. actions such as ballot box to armed revolution), government’s natural tendency is to increase its seizure of power from individuals. And any specific power can only exist with an individual or with the government. In order for governments to have power, or increase power, it must be taken from individuals. It is a “zero sum game” situation…in the struggle for power one entity wins, the other loses.
Most of us are aware of FEMA and their vast authority when they invoke it. By law they can go so far as to seize private and personal property. Yes, meaning they can come in and seize your food, water, guns, and any other resource you have on your person, in your house, on your property. It is done under the guise of “declared state of emergency” for the greater good.
Also, many of us are aware of the dark powers outlined under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This single piece of legislation is the most contradictory of everything good that this country was founded on. By law it allows the federal government to completely and totally ignore the basic founding principles of our country. It gives vast powers to the military to override local and state governments…yes, to even replace local and state law enforcement if they so desire. It allows for the torture of US, as well as foreign, citizens. It allows for the seizure of (not the arrest of) US citizens and disallowing them their Constitutional rights.
But, there is a far more sinister, dark, and evil form of power that the government can and does wield. A while back I began looking into just how much power the federal government (specifically the President) has, that the President can invoke to suppress, partially or wholly, the American people’s rights/freedoms/liberties. In other words change our government from a Constitutional Republic into a totalitarian state temporarily or permanently.
First off…our Constitutional Republic is long gone in both theory and fact. Congress over time (230 years) has continuously passed legislation that negates most, in some cases all, of our original rights, liberties, and freedoms that our Founding Fathers blessed us with. Congress has substantially changed how government works and what powers they can wield. But the single most frightening aspect of government power has not come from Congress, not from the Constitution, and certainly not from the consent of the people. Even the Supreme Court has become an “activist” branch of our government creating law. But some of the most dangerous power that I speak of has simply been created by the Executive Branch of the United States government. I speak specifically of Presidential Emergency Action Documents (PEADs).
Yeah, probably never heard of it have you? Most folks haven’t. And there are no public PEADs, none have been declassified, and the exact contents of PEADs are not known. There is no known record of disclosed information in an interview of anyone who is, or has been involved, with creating, editing, reviewing, or even have read a PEAD. Why? Because all those persons who would have access to them, and they are very few, sign non-disclosure agreements…under penalty of imprisonment. Not even the Freedom of Information Act can get you access to any part of any PEAD…let alone a whole PEAD document.
So how are they known about at all? There have been documents forcibly released (FOIA) by various government agencies that reference a few PEADs by name, hint as to their contents, or use the PEAD reference as justification of current or future action by that agency.
An example of that would be the FBI some 60 years ago had a memo (released through FOIA) that authorized the “seizure”, not the arrest, of any person who represented a threat to the operation of the federal government. And FYI…that authorization has never been revoked, or found unconstitutional by a court (let alone even challenged). Congress has never investigated it and the Courts have never ruled on it or even had a case brought before it pertaining to its obvious violation of the Constitution.
The foundation of PEADs actually started with the concept that a President must be able to act quickly to protect the country, whereas Congress acts slowly and cannot respond in a timeframe adequate to a national emergency. And that is exactly where the abuse started…declared national emergency. When a President declares a national emergency some of the powers he gains through FEMA and NDAA are completely outside of the Constitution and virtually unchecked. And PEADs provide authority even further outside of the Constitution and with virtual immunity from the Judicial Branch of the US government. In other words…it provides everything needed for the United States to become an authoritarian/totalitarian state during a declared national emergency. But, what if a President didn’t stop there…and invoked a perpetual state of emergency? What if he canceled or delayed elections based on a declared national emergency? What if he disbanded Congress…or at least forbid them to travel?
So why don’t we know more about PEADs? The simple answer…security classification. PEADs are classified so secret that even members of Congress are not allowed to read them. In interviews with people that might know about PEAD contents, when asked a question in reference to a PEAD, they answer, “I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of PEADs.” That is government speak for, “I know about them, they exist, they are very powerful, and you are not worthy to know anything about them.”
How convenient is that! The very documents capable of destroying the United States Constitution, shred rights/freedoms/liberties, to establish a totalitarian state…and no one outside of those doing the dirty work can even read them. And the court system, including the Supreme Court, has absolutely no say-so in it…because they too are not allowed access to them.
What does all this mean? The government of the United States has become corrupt to the point where it no longer recognizes God-given rights, has overthrown the founding principles of the Constitution, has all but destroyed most Constitutional rights/freedoms/liberties, has sized power after power after power from citizens, and has changed the way our government was designed to work. Additionally, it has given itself the final, complete, and all-encompassing powers needed to complete the transition from a Constitutional Republic founded 240 years ago to a totalitarian state whenever it wishes to do so. How? Simply by declaring a national state of emergency.
So X-Factor #2 is the US government giving itself unlimited powers completely outside of the protections of the US Constitution.
To continue we have to be able to agree on a few things:
- The US economic situation is unstable, and it has been, and is being intentionally destabilized,
- The existence of COVID-19 has thrown the US into a very chaotic world touching every aspect of our society…and changing it.
- US society is now uncivil and getting worse. Getting worse to the point that we could make a case that we are on the verge of a civil war.
- The US political system has reached a point of…well, it is exactly what our Founding Fathers warned us about…political acting as nothing more than two opposing self-interest groups vying for power.
So if you can agree with me on those things we can go on to talk about this X-Factor. AT this point in time we have a destabilized economic situation, a destabilized society, a destabilized political system and a health crisis. What is the common thread? Destabilization.
So X-Factor #3 is destabilization.
Convergence Point –
So why all the suspense and drama…even coining the term X-Factors? Well, I didn’t exactly create the “X-Factor” term…I am simply applying the term to our current situation.
To understand where I am coming from right now you have to go back to my presentation of the “convergence” at the very beginning of this SitRep in Part #1. Convergence is the intersection, joining, merging, coming together of two or more things. At this time I am referring to the convergence point.
Our society consists of a destabilized economic system, a destabilized society, a destabilized political system, and a severe health related crisis. These destabilized aspects in the United States has created chaos, is creating chaos, and will continue to create chaos. They have come together to create the convergence point.
So where am I headed with all of this? I will answer that with a question…
When you have enough chaos what happens?
The chief mission of a guerrilla insurgency, a primary tactic of the CIA, when trying to overthrow a foreign government, is simple…create a destabilized society. And that destabilization generates sufficient chaos causing the populace to cry out for change…safety and security. It is a tried and proven tactic for thousands of years…and it works…history proves it works. And that is to be feared.
And it can only be defeated with one counter measure…day light. And I am not referring to sunshine as such. But the analogy is spot on. What is the best disinfectant against bacteria and viruses? UV light. What is the most abundant form/provider of UV light? The sun. So shedding daylight on something that needs disinfecting is the best, surest, easiest form of killing the virus/germ/bacteria that is causing the infection.
In this situation shedding light on the situation means standing by correct principles and exposing the evil taking place around us. And to me that requires forgetting politics.
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
George Washington, 1796
“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”
John Adams, 1789
Nothing could be more ill-judged than that intolerant spirit which has, at all times, characterized political parties.
Alexander Hamilton, 1787
Yup, to fix our situation along with shedding daylight on what is happening we must forget politics, forget political parties. Don’t look at it in terms of Republican/Democrat, left/right, liberal/conservative, BLM/Proud Boys, III’s/AntiFa, etc. Forget all of that! If you stick with those political positions and views you are in direct opposition to our Founding Fathers. Our Founding Fathers’ actions were dictated by understanding correct principles, abiding by them, being bold, and standing up for those principles.
The Agenda –
The people who are running this overthrow show, those who have targeted the US at this particular time in this particular way are not part of any political side…they are their own side. Those behind all of this are not members of a political party; they are not liberals, not Communists, not Progressives, not Democrats. They are also not Republicans, not conservatives, not the so-called right. They are none of those! But, they are using all of them, both sides regardless of political position.
They are using all of those groups against each other…they are destabilizing and creating chaos by using all the those opposing groups against each other. Why? To create chaos. Why? So eventually people, the “populace” will ask for, then beg for, then demand safety and security…cry out for peace and stability. And those behind this mess have the perfect answer…and you won’t like it.
Their answer is not rights, freedoms, and liberties. It is not a Constitutional Republic. It is not founding principles based on eternal principles. It is not “…all men are created equal…” It is not “We hold these truths…” It is not “We the people…” It is none of those things. But, it is safety and security, it is peace and stability…or else! And, it is delivered by force through tear gas, night sticks, flash-bang grenades, guns, and military vehicles.
Please remember this simple truth spoken of by one of our wisest Founding Fathers…
The answer of those who are trying to destroy us, their answer to our problems of today, in the plainest of terms…authoritarianism…totalitarianism. You see, the elitists know that you can’t be trusted, to know what is best…so they will tell you what is best. They will give you only options that they deem appropriate…they will force safety and security on you. They will see to it that you live in a peaceful and stable world by forcing it upon you. And you are not going to like it. Well, you won’t like it if you are a person who enjoys rights, freedoms, liberties, and the ability to exercise agency.
And if enough destabilization is created…if enough chaos is created…most people will beg for their plan, they will beg for safety, security, peace, and stability. They will plead for it…demand it. And that same populace will be all too eager to give up rights, freedoms, and liberties in exchange. We’ve seen just that in the last 5 -6 months. People, previously known as patriots and conservatives, are all too willing to accept, even taking great pleasure in, seeing military armored vehicles and soldiers standing on our streets enforcing curfews. Seeing even peaceful protestors and journalists beaten and shot by federal law enforcement troops…others abducted by military uniformed personnel into unmarked vehicles. How quickly they forgot the struggle of 240 years ago and the evils that our Founding Fathers overcame. How quickly these so-called Constitutionalists give up rights and liberties for a little safety and security!
To resist this scheme of those that would see the complete destruction of the United States…to resist their cunning, their evil…it can only be done with correct principles.
POLITICAL PARTIES WILL NOT WORK, DOES NOT WORK, HAS NOT WORKED!!!!!
Only understanding and standing by correct principles will we have any chance to defeat those that wish us harm…and destruction. We must become our Founding Fathers.
I have spoken before about “principles vs politics”…it is our only hope. And I’ve shared my opinion on what principles to adopt. For me I have adopted two sets of principles; 1) Constitutional principles, 2) eternal principles. They are not conflicting, they are not mutually exclusive. They are compatible and complementary. They work perfectly hand-in-hand.
Let me be absolutely clear in what I believe and advocate…
- Being part of a political party will add to the problem and serve to overthrow the Republic.
- Being part of a political entity or movement (i.e. BLM, AntiFa, or any left-wing or right-wing) will add to the problem and serve to overthrow the Republic.
- Favoring any political group (i.e. Communist, Marxist, right-wing, conservative, Republican, Democrat, etc.) will add to the problem and serve to overthrow the Republic.
Why will this add to the problem and serve to overthrow the United States? Because any of the above will create divisiveness, destabilization, and chaos when dealing with the opposite group. They are all the perfect examples of tribalism.
How will this add to the problem and serve to overthrow the United States? Because is plays into the hands of the ruling elitists of pitting us again each other…manipulating us into becoming a tool in their hands…one tribe against the other…all tribes against all others.
How does adopting correct principles “fix” anything? Because when we do what is right we are following correct principles for the right reason. It is never the wrong time to do the right thing. Doing right is the only thing that will overcome the opposition who are doing the wrong things…doing the evil things.
Yes, we may lose a battle from time to time…but we can and will win the war. And the war is not what many/most think…the war is actually good vs evil. Put yourself on the right side of this war through adopting and adhering to correct principles. And, be bold in doing so!
Be bold and stand up for correct principles…speak against anyone, any group, any organization that forwards opposition to those correct principles.
Now is the time to act!
If not you, who?
If not now, when?
Now is the time to be bold!
Now is the time to act!
note: tomorrow I will share some additional thoughts and put forward some suggestions.
