Some Quick Thoughts

Well, the RNC has ended and now the battle for the election begins. It may well turn into a literal battle, but one can hope for something better.

The DNC was extremely negative, filled with envy, anger, hate, and destruction. America is evil, sexist, racist, etc. No real policy, just stated desires to eliminate the Constitution (eliminate 2nd Amendment, restrict or eliminate the first, eliminate the Electoral College, etc.). No speaker offered hope, or grace, to America and especially to the “enemies of the state” who oppose their efforts to any degree. There was even a wink and nod to the ongoing violence, including rape and murder, that not a single speaker acknowledged.

By contrast, the RNC was a story of hope, of Grace, forgiveness, and of all the things that are good in and about America. Rather than fact checks by celebrities/media mouthpieces, the RNC brought in real people, many quite ordinary in respect to celebrity, to detail their experiences and how they overcame odds to raise themselves and others up. In so doing, they did a far more effective job of fact checking the DNC/media. The emphasis was on hope: that America does have problems, but they can be overcome by individuals and individuals working together. That America is indeed the land of opportunity and that equality does not mean equal outcomes, just the chance to grow and succeed if one works for it.

Another interesting contrast this morning is that at the DNC, there were peaceful demonstrations outside. Well, peaceful until the loving, tolerant, thugs attending came outside and began attacking people simply for holding different beliefs and/or supporting opposition candidates. Contrast that to the mobs brought in to literally attack those leaving events at the White House (and maybe elsewhere) in a scene right out of 1930s Germany (or Marxist paradise of your choice).

Make no mistake, the mob violence will get worse. Antifa, BLM, and others will step up their game. There is reason to believe that they have arms, along with the sophisticated communications gear (some of which appears to be military/covert op grade). Where did it come from? What else do they have? There are cells for agitprop and more in major cities, and Wisconsin shows that “peaceful demonstators” can be brought in from around the country rapidly at need.

Speaking of agitprop, the media is glossing over the agitprop that a man who shot himself rather than be captured by police was in fact shot by the police. This bit of agitprop set off yet more “mostly peaceful” demonstrations in Minneapolis…

Again, the violence will only escalate. The people behind the mobs are hoping for violence, especially if they can spin it to being the victims, rather than what happens being ordinary Citizens defending themselves and/or their property. Part of that spin (long planned) is to push the lie that this is happening on Trump’s watch and is his responsibility, rather than the deliberate abrogation of sworn duties by state and local officials who are encouraging and enabling the wanton destruction, rape, and murder taking place during the riots, CHAZ’s, etc.

At this point, it would almost be surprising if the mobs don’t attack voters and voting stations on election day. Again, one can hope but for me it is a faint hope.

The two conventions put things in stark contrast: An America that learns from the past, and moves forward to a better future for all; or, an America that rejects the Constitution and the philosophies that lie behind it to create misery for most while a Nomenklatura rules over the rubble in isolated splendor where the State is god.

Think, vote, and be prepared. Prepare for the worst because even if there is a landslide for Trump, the progressives have already said they will not accept the results. Then again, they haven’t accepted the results from 2016. Sadly, I have to agree with those who say that 2008 may be the last time there was a peaceful transfer of power in our history.

Two Important Reads

Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it, and not just in summer school. There is a history behind what is happening right now, and that also applies to the mobs. This essay is well worth reading, and deserves the widest possible audience, as it goes into the sordid and bloody history of Millenarian Mobs. Hat tip to Powerline.

Three quotes stand out from the essay.

Given the Great Silencing (part II HERE) underway with the expansive censoring by Big Tech as one wing, this quote stood out:

Cohn shows how the adherence of lower-class masses, the phenomenon of crowds shut off from alternative sources of information and argument, helped drive these movements along their radical logic, to the point that their adepts became utterly closed to reality. We might say of them that they mixed and drank the Kool-Aid that killed them. 

This quote also stood out as it is something I’ve said for a while:

Our own generation’s ruling classes are seized by no demons. Instead, they are principally concerned with holding on to power, and short-sightedly regard the revolutionary movements as allies against their socio-political competitors. That is why today it makes sense to consider the violent masses, and to some extent even the purified elite, as in effect pawns of the ruling classes.

And, finally:

Alas, the millennialists and their mob do not need specific grievances against specific targets. The civilization itself is the only real target; its existence and the mob’s lack of complete mastery over it are the only grievances that really matter. They need know only that the civilization they are attacking has become vulnerable, undefended, and may be safely treated with contempt. If we do not share that contempt, history shows we have no choice but to treat the millennialist mob as the enemies they are.

Please, go read the whole thing. Oh, and if you are Antifa or BLM, you might want to look into the Brownshirts and what happened to them; and, if media, you might want to look at who was among the first to the wall in almost every Marxist takeover in the world in the last century. They are happy to use you, but they don’t like you. You would do well to read Sarah A. Hoyt’s message to you.

Finally, this really should be added to my Gust Front post as it is another sign the storm is upon us. Lone crackpot or someone field testing training (or conducting training)? The scary thing is that the latter has to even be considered.

Gust Front

Just a few thoughts to share about the approaching storm. What we have seen so far is, at best, the gust front that precedes the real storm.

Minneapolis was the test, with agitprop, communications, and deployment of resources getting their first run in the field. While New York and Seattle have seen further testing and refinement, the real work of testing and refinement has been Portland. It’s not just been testing external communications and agitprop, but internal communications and the plugging of holes.

Chicago was the final test. U-hauls, vehicle convoys, supplies, and agitprop were put to use to make use of a crisis/opportunity. Even Mayor Lightweight has noticed the organization.

Expect to see this roll out across the country in the days ahead. Expect to see it in some cities/towns you wouldn’t think to see such. September and October are going to be rough. The storm approaches.

Hold Fire

If you are no reading the fearless reporting of Mr. Andy Ngo, you should be. The man has risked and IS risking his life by providing honest coverage of Antifa and the riots in Portland (and in Seattle). They caught him once and beat him badly enough he was hospitalized with bleeding in the brain.

He has documented a number of the tactics being used by the rioters, which is to lure police/LE out so that they can be swarmed. The other thing Antifa, CHAZ/CHOP, and others are doing is not peaceful protest; rather, it is an effort to use violence to provoke a strong response from LE which will then be used my enablers in the media to make a claim of brutality. Indeed, many of the smaller attacks around the country being done on individuals is to provoke a deadly response, again so that claims can be made of racism, excessive force, need to confiscate guns, and to take extraordinary legal actions against not only the persons involved, but any who are not of the chosen few. They are also encouraging people on the edge to be violent, and when those do go off, they can claim innocence even as the acts stoke the fracturing of America and increase the odds of force/excessive force being used in return.

Given media complicity and enabling, these are effective strategies for now. The restraint of federal LE has deprived them for now of what they desperately want, even though the strong response could result in injury or deaths of their own people. The the calling off of local LE by various mayors, have both allowed the riots/arson (and reportedly rape, murder, assaults) to run unchecked to the detriment of their communities.

The problem is, that the violent insurrection — which is what this is, as it is not a peaceful/”mostly peaceful” protest — will have to be faced at some point. These actions are not likely to fade away as would be normal, as those involved have stockpiles, advanced gear, national/international coordination, and continued funding to draw on. These actions will increase, and be deliberately spread across the country as the election nears. When that happens, the responses are not likely to be pretty. Keep in mind that any use of force, even if mild, will be played as excessive by both those behind the insurrection and their fellow-travelers in the media. Trust not the narrative. Do not fall for it.

It may be that the quiet actions in arresting those accused of federal crimes by federal LE, infiltration, and going after the coordination and instigators will pay off. Such arrests and trials are the first real pushback these groups have had, and a number of those arrested are reportedly shocked to find out there could be real consequences to their actions. More of this will have an effect, but how much remains to be seen.

Meantime, watch the videos by Mr. Ngo and other independent journalists. Watch the violence hurled at LE and anyone who gets in the way of the mob. This is what you are not seeing on mainstream media (for the most part). Then, think about the restraint being shown. Right now, it is the best way to not give those in insurrection what they want.

To be honest, I’m inclined right now to agree with James Woods that the best response would be to move all federal functions out of Portland and other cities allowing and enabling the riots/arson/etc. Then let those cities eat themselves. No federal bailouts, no federal help, etc. Yes, Antifa and other groups will try to follow where those federal functions go, but those communities are not as likely to enable/allow the destruction in their own cities; and, the rest of the nation (and world) can see what happens when such violence goes unchecked by the local authorities.

Keep in mind that, as others have rightly said, this is an information/psyop action, not a kinetic action. The response needs to be information/psyop for now. Spread the videos and truth as far and wide as possible. Show the people who have dropped the masks, as what lies beneath is not pretty. Believe those people when they tell you what they are and what they plan to do, for they would not have dropped the masks unless they were ready and willing for the world to see what truly lies beneath. Also, if you are in one of those cities where mayors have refused to let the police do their jobs, ordered them to stand down or stand back, move. Above all, vote. This election truly will decide the fate of the Republic for the next several generations.

Meantime, defend yourself at need but avoid the provocations. Step back, step away, and let their efforts fail. Spread the truth about what is going on, as it is the best way to destroy the narrative and to let reality show.
