What Else Can I Do?

First, I agree with Sarah A. Hoyt in this post, and several previous posts, about what steps to take. Further, I agree with her and others that I see a rather high butcher’s bill unless some of the so-called leaders of the establishment class wake up and face reality. I pray that such a day does not come, but I see no way to avoid it unless people wake up and taste reality. I do not want it, and want to do as much as possible to avoid it.

That said, what else can I do? Borrowing from others as well as my own early thoughts, there is much we can do.

First, start local. Pick the party of your choice and get active. Push out the establishment types that look down their noses at “the rabble” and put some spine into the local organization. Most of all, get involved with your local voting organization, and work to ensure free and fair elections. Notice that a lot of the problems with this last election were local (county) election boards. Yes, state boards/institutions were questionable in some cases, but what allowed them to make interesting decisions were what happened on the local level. If you take steps to make sure that the local rolls are cleaned up and maintained; that only people qualified to vote do so; eliminate vote harvesting; and, otherwise ensure a free, fair, and transparent election, you can be more sure of making a real difference on the local, state, and even national stage.

As a part of this, organize. Find others like yourself and band together. Beware of those who are not what they claim. That said, there are a lot of voters out there who are tired of the establishment politicians and the corruption. There is power in numbers. That said, consider having a cellular organization as a backup.

Second, set up means of contact and information dissemenation outside of big tech, as many as possible. Big Tech is just getting started, and will do all it can — with the help of the progressive left — to destroy alternate platforms. It may not hurt to set up cells both locally and nationally, that can pass along information using low-tech means. While I know amateur radio has been discussed as an option, read/listen to this and then think on what they can call a crime or have made into a crime. Multiple redundancies people, you can’t have enough options in place.

Third, do everything you can legally do to deprive them of your money. A company goes woke, or is woke, doesn’t need your money. Find red companies and support them. Do your business, as much possible in cash, with local small independent businesses. There are more options, take full advantage of them. Find ways to legally pay as little tax as possible. Starve them.

Fourth, ignore and ridicule. The progressive left and the incoming leadership can’t stand either, and the more you ignore and ridicule, the madder they will get. Angry people make stupid decisions, which can be used against them. Make them show their true faces and take ridiculous actions.

Fifth, prepare for the worst. Keep as much cash on hand as you can. Set up non-cash options, such as gold or other valuables, as well. Stock up on food and other supplies, suplements being but one example, and don’t make it easy for anyone to find out that you are stockpiling. Such can be seized “for the good of the people.” There are other things that need stockpiling as well — do it. As Sarah points out, famine and deliberate starvation have been used by socialists (by any other name) as a weapon against the common people as well as adversaries, every time and to good effect. Take what steps you can to avoid anything you lawfully own under current laws from being seized for any reason. Remember that bartering is an option, and should be used to full effect.

There is more, but that’s all the time I have this morning. Get involved on the local level. Ignore edicts and the propaganda, and ridicule the powerful as well as what they are trying to do. Prepare for the worst. Also, please don’t be stupid. Don’t give them a pretext by not fighting smart. Remember, use political aikido as much as possible by not being where the blow falls, and using their own efforts against them. If there is to be a butcher’s bill, let them initiate.

Some blogs I recommend, in no particular order.

Protests, Armed Or Otherwise

Don’t be stupid! Don’t go. Period.

For the first, what I’m seeing screams false-flag/set-up/bad news. They need something more than the demonsration at the Capitol if they are to have any chance to ram through gun control and gun confiscation legislation. So, don’t give it to them. As with all things, make them work for it.

For the second, boycott the inauguration. Don’t acknowledge it, don’t view it, don’t listen to it, ignore it. Make the ratings tank. It is the most powerful thing we can do. That includes not protesting it, which sends several messages while preventing anything but a staged incident that could be used to further cement their power and erode our remaining freedoms.

Don’t be stupid! Don’t go. Period.

The Great Silencing Proceeds

When I wrote this post, I had hoped that it would take much longer to get to this point. I’m not at all surprised at what is happening, just how fast — and how open — it is going. See my posts on Phase II and Mask Dropping for additional thoughts.

They don’t just want to silence any and all opposition, they want to destroy any and all opposition. To be honest, to hold power, they will have to do so, and literal killing has been going on for months now. The media has relentlessly suppressed the political assassinations of, and attacks on, Trump supporters, focusing instead on the few real instances of any pushback at their brownshirts. Sadly, I believe that killing by the progressives and their brownshirts will soon go wholesale. Be prepared.

The efforts to demonitize opposition is also rapidly escalating. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has entered the fray, along with other major companies. Look at what happened to Parler, and how even family and those not directly associated with attempts to create bastions of free speech have had all means of funding/banking suspended (see Gab’s founder as but one example).

Mainstream media continues to fall deeper into the sewer, with more mainstream reporters turning against independent journalists. In the media, it has been widely ignored for some time that “journalists” in Portland and elsewhere have engaged in active efforts to put Andy Ngo’s life in danger.

The destruction of lives continues, with the call to ban anyone who worked for or supported Trump already bearing fruit. Here is but one example of people being driven to suicide. Yes, there are more, go dig.

They hate you, they really, really hate you and literally do want you dead. When they talk of camps, re-education, ending careers and threating to destroy any who employ anyone who worked for or supported Trump, or killing anyone who worked for or supported Trump, they are being quite literal, not figurative. They mean it. Believe them. Now, they are going to move even more into the open. Also, keep in mind that hate is all they have. They have no love, no forgiveness, no Grace; and, while that will eventually will turn them on themselves, they will have no compunction about and will celebrate every destruction and death.

The next major operation will be creating another incident to use to push not just gun control, but gun confiscation. They’ve started by turning the demonstration at the Capitol into such a moment, but need more. All the more reason I urge anyone and everyone to boycott the inauguration and especially the false-flag armed protests being talked about. They hate to be ignored and they hate to be ridiculed. A boycott hits both, so use it. Do not fall for false flag events, don’t do something stupid and give them what they need. Make them fabricate it, so that more and more see what lies beneath the masks that have been removed.

Meantime, fight back. Get active in forums that Big Tech has not yet brought down. Read, listen, think, and share. Then, start local. There is a reason George Soros has been funding people in local elections. A good start is to find out who took such funding, and primary them and support a decent replacement. Support not establishment candidates, but good people who will do the job and follow the Constitution. Cleaning out the establishment politicians and the progressives locally isolates those in DC and chips away at their power.

Go read the posts from Sarah A. Hoyt, especially her posts Dance To The Line and Line Dancing: How To Be A Scary Moron. There are others I will mention later, but Sarah has already surved socialism once and has insights many do not.

Boycott The Inauguration

Following up on my post from yesterday on false flag ops and other IW, Roger L. Simon has a very good take on how to avoid being drawn into such. If no one shows up to protest anywhere, it will be harder (but not impossible) to turn it into a false flag event. Remember Aikido, and that the best way to avoid an attack is not to be where the blow lands. Step aside and let your enemy be the one extended and off balance. Make them look the fool, and if they happen to trip and fall, well, too bad.

Ware False Flags And Friends

Short and sweet this morning. If you are thinking about attending an armed protest: DON’T. Do you not think that these will be used to set-up a provocation, an “incident” that will be used to push through legislation on gun control and confiscation? Don’t be stupid, they will do so (as with Waco) and take it as far as they can.

For all that I agree with Sarah A. Hoyt on the fact that we need to Dance To The Line, I would recommend strongly avoiding most protests. As with the one in southern California, they will be attacked and despite video and other evidence, only one side will commit violence and be charged. HINT: It will not be those attacking the peaceful protest.

Beware online and real-life “friends” egging you and events on. The amount of IW/Psyops underway is beyond amazing and disturbing. The left needs violence, and will do anything to anyone to get it. Step back from it, make them overextend so that you/we can step aside and let them fall on their face (think Aikido). Don’t play into their hands by being stupid and giving them something they can seize on and distort. We do not need any more martyrs like Ashli Babbitt (SAY HER NAME!), though we will have them. Far too many of them I suspect.

There will come a time when to save their life, or the lives of a loved one, someone will defend themselves. The left and it’s leaders in politics and the media, will do all they can to demonize and destroy that person. They will lie through their teeth about what happened, and use it to push not just gun control and confiscation, but to go after all weapons if they can. They want everyone who might oppose them disarmed.

Ridicule them, counter them with facts, make them take ridiculous swings so that the masks slip for all to see. But, be as safe as you can and don’t give them any unforced errors to use against those who oppose them.

Ashli Babbit, Martyr

Whatever she was before, and she was a 14-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Ashli Babbit is now a martyr. There are several videos of her shooting, and you can view some of them here; or, view a much longer video of the entry into the Capitol here (recommended). No links to Youtube from me, they are requiring sign-in to view them. Fuck them. And, yes, the videos are graphic.

She was climbing into a broken window when she was shot in the neck, apparently by someone in the library. None of the various videos indicate any warning. Once down, she pointed to her neck as blood came out her mouth and nose.

DC police are “investigating” her death, but I don’t expect much given their long history of covering up for various federal legal entities. I suspect that they, along with many politicians, expect that “the people” will just take it like always. They are wrong.

Both the Democrats and the establishment Republicans are seriously misreading the lay of the land. After months of riots over deaths of rather questionable individuals, the huge overreach of authority in the name of pandemic lockdowns, the huge and continuing economic impact of various measures — again in the name of the pandemic — that are killing small- and medium-sized businesses and keeping millions out of work, and an election that stinks to high heaven, the people have had enough. The murder (a term I use with deliberation) of Ashli Babbit will not just be accepted, and those who think they can control this narrative are fools.

What happened yesterday at the Capitol should not have been unanticipated. Most of the law enforcement I’ve seen inside showed restraint and a high degree of professionalism. However, it only takes one panicked and/or unprepared (or just plain stupid) person to do something this criminally stupid. To be honest, I’m surprised it was just the one shot, and I wonder if that person’s fellow officers did anything to stop them from firing again. It really doesn’t matter though.

Blood has been spilled, and the media response makes clear they realize that Ashli Babbit’s death makes her a martyr. They have and will continue to do all they can to avoid that. It’ won’t matter. It won’t matter if twitter, FB, and YouTube do all they can to suppress the videos. It’s out there, from multiple angles and multiple people, on multiple platforms.

If there is a case for a member of security shooting dead an unarmed woman who’s only threat was that of entering a library in the Capitol, they need to make it now if they are smart. However, they aren’t so I expect them to try to destroy her name and reputation, and will count of their minions in the media to carry their water for them. The media will do so, but it will not have the impact they think. It will only add fuel to the flames.

The progressive left sees violence as a dial that can be turned up (see this summer’s riots) or down at need. A good portion of the rest of the world, however, does not. They see it as a simple on/off switch. A case can be made that yesterday was a different side playing with the knob. An interesting philosophical discussion, but moot in terms of reality.

This year has seen multiple assaults and even murders of Trump supporters and/or those simply seen as such. The mayor of DC (and the DC police) encouraged violence in the city against Trump supporters (or those simply suspected of being such) at previous rallies. If they attempt to white-wash this, or to engage in further violence, I’m very much afraid that they will find that her murder has flipped the switch.

Hang on, as I am afraid it is going to get very rough, potentially to the point that we will see internal violence on a level we have not seen in more than 100 years. Be prepared, be smart, and be as safe as circumstances allow. Think. And think long and hard where you stand in regards freedom and liberty, and what you can and will do to preserve the same. There is still time and opportunity to pursue legal and other remedies to secure them; but, I fear that window may be as gone as the window Ashli Babbit was climbing through when she was murdered.

Hold Fast; Prepare

Yes, these are desperate and challenging times. Arbitrary and ineffective lockdowns continue not based on science, but on power. See this article for a bit of the gaslighting in play. The class divide between those so-called elites who have yet to experience financial or other hardship versus the average worker who has been out of work or “underemployed” because of said lockdown is growing ever steeper. The rightful resentment of the average worker and small business owner with the “elites” who don’t follow their own rules is growing to a level that should frighten those elites. However, they lack the self-awareness, and consider all those not in their “class” as less than human, to realize what is brewing.

What is brewing is, in part, being seen in civil disobedience. Read this from Nina Bookout, and this from Instapundit. There is more, much more, if you go look.

The election is a travesty, and now the Quislings come out trying to cut deals with the new administration to avoid retribution and retain their positions in power. The legal challenges to the fraud in the election are being met with illegal attempts to go after those pursuing legal challenges for Trump with threats and threats of legal action to block any inquiry. The media is all in on pushing a false narrative to drag Biden into office, and stop objections or efforts to ensure the election was free and fair. Do NOT let them snow you. Meantime, efforts of The Great Silencing continues, with big tech going after anyone even remotely associated with those they want to silence. They are trying hard to take away the soap box and the ballot box, as this quote exemplifies, without thinking about what box that leaves those that don’t agree with them

Stand Fast!

The legal challenges and efforts to true the vote must go through. If we fail to do so, there will be no real elections down the road. Yes, it is that serious. So, don’t let the media and others try to force you to give up. Do not give up, and do not give up your support of those doing the right and legal things to ensure every legal vote is counted accurately.

Support them, and prepare for a rough ride. The next few months will not be easy, but do not despair. Instead, prepare. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Stock up on food and other supplies: remember that floods and other disasters hit farms and other food production even before the lockdowns threw further spanners into the food chain. Prices are already up, so freeze, can, and otherwise stock up what you can. Buy ammo (if you can find it) and guns, as the elites have already told you as plainly as they can that you are on your own. Then, hope that enough people that have sworn oaths to the Constitution are willing to keep them.

Ignore the media and their efforts. Move to other platforms and hosting providers to counter big tech. Give your business as much as possible to small and local businesses. Do not let the massive propaganda effort get to you. Also, make a note of the Quislings in the event we ever do have a free and fair election again. Start working against them now in any way you can.

Most of all, aim to misbehave. Civil disobedience to illegal and/or un-Constitutional orders is both legal and right. Find ways large and small to give those trying to seize powers not granted to them in the Constitution the middle finger. Turn the tables on them: flood the snitch lines with reports on them (at every level) when they don’t follow their rules.

Again, most of all: Stand Fast! All is not yet lost, if we fight the good fight. If the so-called leaders on the Republican side won’t find a spine and reproductive organs, there are better than 70 million voters out there who do have them. Stand up, and Stand Fast.

It is only lost if we give up.

Real Experts On Red Flags

Larry Correia is on a roll. If you missed them, check out The 2020 Election: Fuckery Is Afoot and the follow-up post The 2020 Election: The More Fuckery Update. Note, these do not deal with cases of fraud; rather, the statistical “red flags” that can indicate to an auditor or other investigator that there is indeed something to be investigated. Not that this will stop Twitter, FB and others from trying to ban it, but it is an important point.

His latest post is I Asked One Simple Question To People Who Work With Fraud. Larry laid out his case, based on his experience as an accountant, and asked the following:

One quick question, only answer if you have worked in auditing/stats/fraud/investigations/or other data analysis type fields. In your entire career, have you ever seen a case that threw up this many flags that DID NOT turn out to be fraud?

He is posting their replies. The media can deny that there is any fraud, claim there is not a large amount, scream, cry, and hold their breath until they turn blue; but, the real experts who deal with fraud speak out on the subject of red flags and their experiences — and the results are devastating to the media lie. If you haven’t already done so, read all three in order.

Hold Fast: Thoughts And What You Can Do

Don’t let the media get you down. You are not alone. Much of the news cycle is bull, or as Sarah aptly puts it, a blue smokescreen. Keep in mind, the media does NOT get to call the election. The States must first ratify/certify the totals, then the Electoral College will meet and and vote (Dec. 14th at the earliest), then Congress must ratify/certify the results in January. Right now, there is NO President elect, nor can there be until December at the earliest. Given the multiple lawsuits and complaints, who knows.

What can you do? Let the President know you support him and his efforts. If you can, donate here. Stay involved and remember: Noli sinere nothos te opprimere/Non illegitimi carborundum (latter is fake Latin, but accurate /sarc). Also, donate to the races in Georgia: donate to David Perdue here and to Kelly Loeffler here. Better yet, if you live in Georgia or can travel there, volunteer and help get the word and vote out.

If you experienced or witnessed first hand voter fraud, here’s how to report it. If you call your local office and they are not interested in pursuing it, then document that and start moving up the chain. Make a post about it, get the word out like this person did. Shine a light. Can’t hurt to let the President’s team know about it either.

Is there voter fraud? Yes. Here’s one list that attempts to be complete. As for why we should think there is fraud, read this and this about the red flags from Larry Correia based on his experience as an accountant. While I haven’t had a chance to delve into this article, the fact that FB and Twitter are determined to bury it (and to ban accounts that share it) means it probably should be looked at in seriousness.

Hold Fast. Do what you can to share accurate info; volunteer and do other things you can for the elections in Georgia; report problems and fraud you have experienced or witnessed; and let the President know you stand by him and his efforts. Don’t let the media and others get you down.
