For months, I have been watching the US fall deeper into the clutches of an insurgency designed to overthrow the US government and replace it with a communist dictatorship. As late as two weeks ago, I was being called crazy. Heck, two years ago, I would have called me crazy. So I have spent the last two weeks laying out my case. Now it is time for me to present my closing argument.
I must admit that, as I worked on this, I came to realize that the condition we find ourselves in has been in the making for at least a decade. Perhaps longer. Events that led us to this include the deaths of Andrew Breitbart and Antonin Scalia, the assassination attempt on Republican house members, the impeachment attempts on President Trump, and more.
Like Mein Kampf, the insurgents laid out their entire plan for us to monitor. Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals spells out their entire plan in black and white. In part one of my three part series on insurgency, I explained the first stage of their plan. Phase one of the insurgency is the preparation phase. The insurgents spent time and energy building up an organizational and logistical foundation, upon which they built the entire plan. Saul Alinsky picked up on the fact that the American system of government could only be destroyed from within once radical operatives had control over society’s institutions. There are large portions of the Federal government that are now more loyal to the insurgency than are loyal to the Republic.
Just as I pointed out in part two of the Roots of the Insurgency story, the insurgency must eliminate or silence any opposition to the insurgency and increase the population’s dependence upon the goodwill of the portions of the government that are under the control of the insurgents. At the same time, we divide the people into “We” and “they” factions. In this case, along racial and class lines by telling a portion of the public that they are not as prosperous as “they” are because “they” are holding “us” back through an unfair system. How can you tell that it is working? Businesses change names of products, taglines, and branding. Once the government begins bowing to the political strength of the insurgents, the insurgency is at the peak of its political power. This is the point at which even more portions of the government cross over to openly support the insurgency. Those who do not submit will have their reputations, businesses, and lives ruined.
It is during phase two that the insurgency can now begin to use force. It begins modestly- assassinations, disappearances, unexplained deaths that aren’t fully investigated, and seemingly random attacks. In my opinion, this has been going on for several years. In fact, Antifa even announced on November 4, 2017 that they were beginning the revolution. I blogged about it at the time.
Then comes overt action. Just as I pointed out in part three of Roots of an Insurgency, the insurgency enters the crisis stage. Violence begins to be more frequent, and right out in the open. The militant wings of the insurgency come out of hiding and directly challenge the authority of the government. Not only is it the goal of the insurgents to beat the government, but to convince the people that there is no point in fighting, because the insurgency is too strong. The portions of the government- local, state, and Federal, who are under control of the insurgency will allow the insurgents to continue to operate, and will even support the actions of the insurgents. The government that is loyal to the status quo is then openly challenged to a fight. If the government accepts the challenge and win, they look like tyrants, but if they lose or refuse to accept the challenge, they look weak.
This is also the stage where purges begin, books are burned or rewritten, and the history of the old regime is destroyed. This prevents any sort of “counter revolution” from gaining any traction.
The US Army calls this the “Open Insurgency Stage.” According to the Army:
At this stage, no doubt exists that the government is facing an insurgency. Politically, the insurgents are overtly challenging state authority and attempting to exert control over territory. Militarily, the insurgents are staging more frequent attacks, which have probably become more aggressive, violent, and sophisticated and involve larger numbers of fighters. As the insurgency becomes more active, external support for the belligerents probably becomes more apparent, if it exists.
An insurgency at this stage often progresses from undermining state authority to displacing and replacing it. Insurgents may develop a “shadow government” that mirrors state administrative structures and may establish “no-go” areas where government representatives have been driven out and where only large formations of security forces can operate.
“No go” zones like the ones in New York, Portland, Seattle, and elsewhere. At the same time that insurgents are attacking more and more often, they demand that we defund and dismantle the police to replace it with BLM personnel. (There goes that shadow government and replacing state authority.)
I previously believed that we were in phase two. I was plainly wrong. We entered phase two during the summer of 2016, once the powers that be realized that HRC might not win the Presidency. Once violence begins, the lines get a bit blurry, but I really believe that we are currently in phase three or the end of phase two. What comes next? Who knows? Who is John Galt?
I think there is a classic “October Surprise” to come. I think that it is odd that Biden isn’t even really campaigning. He hasn’t even chosen a running mate. Why? Has he given up? Doubtful. Is he that sure he will win? Is he really going to be the nominee? Or will his running mate be the surprise? Michelle Obama? It would be foolish of him to pick HRC, unless he hires a food taster.
Whatever the case may be, whatever the Democrat party does with the Biden campaign will tell us a lot about where they see the nation heading.
At any rate, we are in a violent phase of a revolution, a coup, an insurgency, call it what you will. I rest my case, and leave it up to each of you to look at the evidence and decide for yourselves where we are.
