Martial Law Is Coming, But Not Yet!

Published

on

A spokeswoman for the US Army recently informed American citizens to be prepared to comply with soldiers’ directives in a martial law scenario by stating: “Understand that if active-duty military actually get deployed within the United States, that weapon is not just pointed at other people, other countries. It is pointed at you. If you do not get in your house when I tell you to, you become the enemy.”

Comments such as these should be extremely alarming to freedom loving Americans. The idea of the US Military being deployed in American communities is something that hasn’t happened significantly since the US Civil War. And while visions of the US Military denying our Constitutional rights can be frightening, there are lessons from history indicating that the military may not have an easy walk in the park at suppressing the freedoms of a resistant population.

Take the US Civil War as a first example. The South had formed a weak and fledgling government with very few resources, no treasury, no navy, and no organized military in comparison to the North. In terms of railways, seaports, transportation and industrial might, the southern states, on paper, were no match for the north, yet, the war carried on for 4 long years. US Military Veterans of the Texas Revolution, The Bear Flag Revolt, and The Mexican – American War rallied to each other’s side to defend their homes and their families. Not only did these men have military experience and training, they knew the land, the backwoods, the swamps, the mountains, and the hill country better than the invaders from Washington and New York City. Yes they ultimately lost, but skirmishes and outpost hold outs lasted for years long after the war. The point is that people dedicated to defending their freedoms, their families, and their way of life are not easily defeated.

History shows us that military and technological superiority is an unreliable guide to determining the outcome of a war. Relatively recent historical examples include Indochina (1946-1954), Indonesia (1947-1949), the failure of the US to defeat their rivals in Vietnam, the failed Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980’s, the US’s struggles dealing with insurgency for years in Iraq, and more recently, the US’s failure in Afghanistan. While weak submissive sheep seem to get all of the media attention and accolades, history is rife with stories of people in this world who would rather die than be subjugated.

An invading force, of any community in America will have to subdue and control the population for the long term. Most communities in America are already highly organized, many of the smaller towns in the country are very provincial, with deep family ties, and more importantly, they are heavily armed with plenty of patriotic veterans. They know the backroads, the geography, and the climate.

These factors do not mean patriots would not suffer heavy casualties. It does not mean victory, but it does demonstrate why, thus far, the globalist enemies of freedom loving Americans have chosen not to engage us in armed conflict, yet. They have instead spent decades influencing our media, Hollywood, our sources of entertainment, recently our military, and buying off our politicians, and corporations, slowly de-industrializing us, and gaining control of our schools and universities in a “long march through the institutions.”

The result is that today, 50% of the US population supports wearing a mask of submission, and taking or mandating an ineffective “vaccine.” Some 3 million Americans are demanding monthly “stimulus” checks of $2,000, and 60% of Americans want stricter gun laws. Nearly half the country is engaged in some type of moral or cultural rot and they are ripe to be told what to do in exchange for free money. The other half of the country will resist, and should the worst possible thing happen, violence; history shows that this young spokeswoman for the US Army, and her ilk, might be in for a rude awakening. This is why, while it captures headlines, it is highly unlikely that we will find ourselves in a martial law situation any time soon. This doesn’t mean it won’t happen.

My generation, Generation X (anyone between the ages of 41-56) are arguably the last generation of Americans to have known and tasted true freedom. And while Gen Xer’s have diverse political ideologies, we all remember a time when it was ok to be free. When you didn’t have to wear a helmet and knee pads to ride a bike or skateboard. We still did the Pledge of Allegiance in elementary school, we watched Red Dawn on cable TV, we were kids when Rocky defeated the big bad Russian guy and was wrapped in red, white, and blue. While we enjoyed entertainment, we resented being raised by it as we were the generation of “latch key kids” so we never really let entertainment control us in the same way as subsequent generations have. This is why our defining generational lyric sarcastically mocked that very notion: “here we are now, entertain us”

Our generation is the last to remember a time when lifestyle choices were “to each is own.” We benefitted a little bit, but not as much as the boomers, from the largest relatively uninterrupted economic boom in American history, and relative peace until the Bush Wars. In our young single years we could drink and have fun at bars and nightclubs and backyard parties, and just have a good time. Everyone didn’t seem to have a political position on, well… everything. People weren’t always coiled and ready to strike. We share these memories of times of freedom, peace, love for humanity, and economic opportunity with the Baby Boomer generation. Unfortunately, we will all be gone in 50 years. The global communist revolutionaries have been waiting patiently since the Frankfurt School days of the 1920’s to make their move. Waiting 50 more years while continuing to press the culture and the institutions will continue to be their strategy. When they do decide to use military violence, all they will have to contend with will be the faded memory of stories of freedom that Generation X shares with their children tonight.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.

If you’re having trouble listening to Joe for more than a minute, the tool above might work for you. On the Facebook site, “Best of the Web,” I saw this Biden bingo card. It could help you to stay the course when tuned into other broadcasts featuring our acting president.

Covid

China; Hidden Dragon, or Paper Tiger

Published

on

With all the ongoing issues in America today it might seem superfluous to worry about China. Between crime in the streets, the latest Covid variant, lock downs, forced vaccinations and corrupt at every level of government it might seem we have enough to worry about. But, what if it’s all related and part of a plan? What if we have always been at war with Eurasia but were never informed?

First let’s take a look at militarily how the opponents stack up.  On paper and in total dollars the USA outspends China by more than double. ($738 Billion Vs $252 billion). China has more than five times the number of citizens available for military service. Surprisingly at this time China and the USA are about equal in terms of ground forces equipment. (IE: Tanks, armored fighting vehicles, rockets)  It would appear that our air forces are about equal in numbers but we have double the number of helicopters and China has twice as many fighter aircraft as we do.  In sheer numbers China has the USA out classed in the naval department. America has more aircraft carriers by a factor of 5, but China holds the lead in fast attack frigates, corvettes and a slight lead in submarines.

As for nuclear weapons the USA has a total of 6,500 warheads but only 1,600 are currently deployed. China is a little harder to asses since they are not part of the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and do not reveal the total numbers of weapons they have. (For reference Russia has 6,490 warheads down from 40,000 during the height of the cold war. Currently has 1,600 deployed)

On paper it would seem the two super powers are evenly matched. But let’s not make the mistake most military generals do by fighting the last war. So much of their energy is studying the last conflict, the latest’s one always surprises them. (see Blitzkrieg).  Some of the more forward thinking realize the next war will be economic. Possibly combined with a cyber-attack. Today we are already seeing the probes of our technology driven economy. Most of these come from China. For a listing of these one only needs to go to the Center for Strategic International Studies. (CSIS).

In planning for a global conflict to come it seems the CCP is relying upon the oriental virtues of planning and patience, while the western world is into instant gratification. While the USA exports the virtues of multiculturalism and LGBTQ rights around the world the CCP is investing in roads, bridges, dams, ports and  infrastructure. By loaning money to developing nations at exorbitant rates and requiring Chinese labor and materials they are copying the colonial model sans the hospitals and schools.

Since 2013 China has been following a five year plan (China loves those five year plans) called the Belt and Road initiative. Interestingly announced during a visit to Kazakhstan. The goal is to build a Chinese centered international order. It is also known as the Silk Road Economic Belt, or the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. The names are a nod to the historic trade routes to and from the western world to China, popularized by the travels of Marc Polo.  In 2019 a second Belt to road five year plan was instituted to quell the negative press and concentrate on a more “green and sustainable” era. As of 2020 140 of 193 countries and 32 international agencies have signed up.

For some of these countries the BRI turns into a debt trap. When they can’t pay up they are forced to turn over the very projects the Chinese financed. Uganda has turned over its international airport. Sri Lanka has handed over a large port. Djibouti is about to hand over another, adjacent to our largest port in Africa. Zambia is negotiating the turnover of their largest coper mine to help restructure their debt. In spite of all this other countries in South America are signing on to the BRI. Cuba has found another sugar daddy in the CCP’s initiative. Something to keep in mind all these project must follow the China’s National Defense law that mandates civilian infrastructure projects closely related to national defense shall meet national defense requirements and functions and must be surrendered for military use when needed.

North America is not immune to the prospect of “easy” money granted by the CCP. Canada has not signed on to the BRI but has welcomed Chinese investment on several fronts. Mostly in British Columbia and Bunavat. In the United States the CCP hasn’t been lending money but investing. Investing in politicians, Hollywood, Newspapers, News organizations and Colleges. They own internet companies like Tic-Tok, Riot Games, and We Chat. Brick and mortar companies like Smithfield, the Waldorf Astoria and Continental Aerospace Technologies. So much money is invested in American companies that you rarely see any criticism of the Communist countries policies. Global warming, China gets a pass, child labor laws, China need not apologize, slave labor, well what slave labor, and human rights abuses don’t see any there.

So what does it all mean to America and its citizens? As we move closer to China’s social credit system who will stand up and denounce it? The same politicians that accepted enough money to keep them in office? The news organizations that rely on CCP money to keep them afloat? Just look at how many objected to Covid being referred to as the China flu. Speaking of the China flu, what if it was released by China in an effort to destroy the economies of most nations and allow them to take control of strategic ports and airports around the world. Who would stand up if China decides that Taiwan could no longer be tolerated and will be annexed?

It would seem China is a paper Tiger. A paper tiger made of Yen. They have bought and paid for large sections of the United State economy. You could say the same for Europe.  China has ensured that every third world country that is rich in the resources owes a substantial portion of their gross domestic production to the CCP. You don’t need to be a dragon when you own all the paper.
