Societal Warfare

Published

on

Commercial Warfare is just the tip of the iceberg. Costco stops carrying “My Pillow” products, MLB boycotts Georgia, Movie producers join them, then Delta and Coca Cola pile on. These are just the headliner instances but Commercial and Societal Warfare is being practiced throughout our society…and it is cancerous.
Most people watch the news or read it on their phones, then they shake their heads in disgust or tell their nearby family or friends how outrageous they think things are. What they don’t realize, however, is that they too are soldiers in this war.
The fact that they aren’t fighting is the problem.
We watch the news and ask, “What good would it do for me to speak up?” We say, “It wouldn’t make a difference.” Oh yes it does and would.
By a small margin of votes like yours, the Democrat candidates took the Senate in Georgia. By a small margin of votes, key counties in swing states went for Biden, or should I say went against Trump. (It’s my observation that almost nobody voted FOR Biden, but lots of people voted AGAINST Trump.)
The media at all levels, international, national, regional and local, have sustained a campaign of bias against conservatism. They claim that “woke” good intentions are their motive, but the reality is that they abandoned their journalistic duty to bring us the truth and instead gave us opinions disguised as truth. We trusted them, but we should have recognized them as soldiers in the ongoing war against us and our freedom.
War used to be physical. It was about real estate, controlling the high ground, capturing the castle, annexing more land. Battles were fought with weapons like knives, arrows, bullets, bombs, diseases, toxins, and destruction. Millions of people were killed so that their countries couldn’t resist. That was mom and dad’s version of war.
Today war is being fought online, in “news” reports, in classrooms, in popular television shows, in movies, through public terror campaigns disguised as protests, through the corruption of public utilities and police departments, in city council chambers, via mayor’s offices and state legislatures, plus in courtrooms.
But, make no mistake, it is a real war. It is as real as the 163 days of non-stop combat my father experienced in the Philippines and on Guadalcanal in World War 2. It just doesn’t look or feel the same.
Policies, regulations and denied essential services can be as devastating as bombs when placed strategically. When you can’t enroll your child in the school of your choice then the only viable option is public school indoctrination or home schooling. When colleges are more bent on teaching “inclusiveness” and “white guilt” than math, English and science, then a university degree becomes a Woke Passport instead of intellectual advancement. When a company is fined for allowing you to not wear a mask in a local coffee shop then commerce diminishes and small businesses struggle to survive. 
When it is no longer OK to compliment a person of another gender, or say “man” or “woman”, or notice someone’s skin color, or mention your Christian holiday (as in “Merry Christmas”), or assume that most people are heterosexual, or admire a statue of a long forgotten hero, or name your school after one of America’s founding fathers, then folks, we are in trouble.
Battles are being won and we aren’t even showing up to fight. 

As they see that we aren’t resisting in any meaningful ways, they increase the attack. Audacity has become their default mode. The more outrageous it is, the more it tests our resolve and shows our weaknesses. In conventional warfare this would be a feigned attack on the enemy’s fortifications to see how much pressure it would take to overwhelm them and to see how they would defend themselves. If the attack failed, a new strategy would be tried until the vulnerability was found. Then victory would be certain. 

In Societal warfare all weapons are on the table. Rumors are weapons and when placed strategically they can weaken the credibility of leaders and cause panic among the followers. If they can control the mainstream news media and slant their comments and observations to show disdain or cynicism toward your enemy’s respected leaders, then the leaders become less effective. Simple comments that are untrue but placed within a broader comment usually go unchallenged. But, as in a courtroom, when the judge says to the jury, “Disregard that last remark.” We know that everyone heard it and considered it. So, a statement like, “In the Trump-inspired Capitol insurrection…”, becomes accepted as if it were based in truth. But the riot at the Capitol was no more an “insurrection” than the outrageous confrontations in the Capitol hallways done by the Left during the Kavanaugh hearings. A handful of paid vandals committed criminal acts on January 6th but most people were just loud, not harmful. And there is no evidence to indicate that the violence that day was inspired or even condoned by President Trump. Nonetheless, a large number of citizens now accept it as true.

President Clinton proved repeatedly that a statement oft repeated becomes accepted. When some Republican initiatives were shown to be more popular than his, he simply started claiming them as his own. After awhile it was assumed he was their author. Today we hear terms that cannot be substantiated but by repetition in mainstream sources they gain acceptance as hard facts. “White privilege” and “Racial oppression”, “Voter suppression”, “Police brutality”, “Male dominance”, “Social justice” all are terms we have come to know and hear daily. But drill down on any of them and you’ll find scant evidence that it’s worth worrying about. Individual instances, sure, but not “Systemic” causes. 

What are we doing to resist these attacks? Have you changed your shopping patterns to boycott offenders? Do you campaign for conservatives in your local community? Do you get out the vote for city council, school board, county commissioner, or local judge races? Do you attend meetings and challenge the new policies and regulations? Do you write to your local, regional, or state representatives? The vast majority of the news we get is national and international. But the biggest affect on our daily life is at the local or state level. “All politics is local,” said former House Speaker Tip O’Neill, and that’s certainly where it is felt most.  

In World War 2 Germany took over France. They marched in by the tens of thousands and occupied the country. They dominated all public functions and even intruded into private life. But, life always finds a way, as Jurassic Park told us. The French Underground, the Resistance, quickly formed and covertly operated for years to assist anyone who might defeat the German occupiers. That same thing happens anywhere an oppressive regime takes over. A “Black Market” is the first to form, people trade goods that are limited or controlled. 

We need to be resisting in all legal, ethical and non-violent ways we can. Even though many of the Left do not operate by legal or ethical standards. 

The border crisis or “challenge” is a disastrous situation that was created intentionally with anticipated effects. Any thinking person could predict the surge of invaders and even anticipate their favored tactics. Cartels and other adversaries assemble children by the thousands to overwhelm our system because they know that Americans are sympathetic to children and will abandon their defenses in order to protect kids. That has become  their main diversion. Put the kids up front and on the news, make them helpless, wait for the Americans to rescue them, then quickly get the illegal drugs, gang members and terrorists across the border while they are distracted. It has been working for months now. This was intentionally done through a policy change at the White House on the first day of the Biden administration. Talk about audacity! 

Societal warfare is upon us and coming to your street soon. It’s time to join the battle with information, showing up, recruiting others, countering the indoctrination of our kids, electing conservative representatives and local officials, resisting and challenging oppressive policies and rule changes. Don’t elect familiar names or people who simply say good words. Elect people who are willing to stand up and resist the socialist intrusions. Start communicating more than ever. Be heard!

America No More…

Published

on

After watching with over a hundred others the newly released movie, Civil War, I left the theater stunned, and I was not alone. Was it a good movie? Just a deeply unsettling one! Could it really happen? You don’t even want to imagine it! But with Biden’s assault on America continuing and Trump reemerging as the favored GOP candidate, the American division is growing. More and more citizens are getting angrier as their standard of living is in jeopardy and illegals are getting benefits citizens can only dream of.

Spoiling the movie’s plot is never appropriate, but when Western forces from Texas, Florida, and even California take on the elected President, the country is left in a civil war. We watch as desensitized media professionals cover the death of hundreds of American citizens. To the film’s media, the war is just a once-in-a-lifetime story that deserves to be captured one picture at a time. After all, it’s the media’s job. They are just feeding citizens what they want—blood, gore, winners, and victims. What would happen if America descends into such chaos? This movie provides one disturbing view, one that, God help us, must never happen.

One thing is clear, when a country loses trust in its leader’s ability to preserve their cherished freedoms and ensure equal treatment under the law, even insurrection seems somehow possible. That is a nightmare no American should have to entertain, but more and more Americans seem to be losing hope in the future of our country. They don’t trust elections. Many don’t even like the Presidential choices presented to them.

The Founding Fathers valued freedom enough to unleash a revolution against the greatest power at the time. Enough citizens joined them in securing what most at the time believed impossible, independence. Yes, insurrection hatched our beloved America. Belief in equal rights and freedom are powerful forces that have always driven patriotic Americans to action.


Even with our differences, most Americans believe in property rights, voting rights, law enforcement to keep us safe, freedom of speech, and personal responsibility. Unfortunately, more and more Americans feel these values are in question, and they are not sure America can be saved!

Many Americans no longer even believe that elections will produce a lawful winner. They don’t trust the voting machines. They want paper ballots that can be counted. They don’t believe multiple days are needed. Hasn’t one day of voting always been enough? They want required IDs and signed mail-in ballots. They fear ballot harvesting is just another name for ‘manufacturing” all the votes you need to ensure a fraudulent victory. Are American fair elections no more!

Many no longer believe that the enforcement of law is fair and sure. While former President Donald Trump has been charged with multiple “crimes,” President Joe Biden’s similar actions aren’t even charged. Hunter Biden’s influence peddling with money set aside for the “Big Guy” are not even covered in the mainstream media. The Dept. of Justice is quick to charge Trump, but with the Bidens, we hear nothing but crickets. People who commit crimes are being let go instead of being held accountable. Is American law and order no more!

Under President Trump, our border was finally more under control. Under Biden, his open border has been continually flooding our country with illegals from around the world. They come expecting benefits at the expense of taxpaying citizens. Illegals overwhelm services in our urban areas. Legal immigrants had to wait years to enter and are fuming at this invasion of illegals rushing to the front of the line and expecting to be accepted, supported, and allowed to become citizens. Is America’s secure border no more!

We thought in America, your home was your castle. If you work to buy the home of your dreams, you were sure that your property rights were secure in a community that you loved. But today, squatters are taking over vacant homes and fending off owners who want them to leave their property. Illegals are being told to come to America, find an empty home, and move in. In the name of equity, governments are rezoning the suburbs and requiring the building of low-income housing where it is not wanted. Are America’s property rights no more!

Do you believe America is lost? Do you believe nothing can reverse this march to chaos? Do you believe that it is time to buy your own guns to protect your family when the government won’t? Is a civil war coming? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in danger of losing the optimistic attitude that has characterized Americans for two centuries. This is our country. This is not the time for surrender. It’s time to fight to preserve America the best way you can—vote for candidates who promise to preserve the rights you value most.

Your vote does matter. There are no perfect candidates, but the party positions make a difference in this critical election. If you want law and order, secure borders, fair elections, property rights, and a return to personal responsibility, there is only one party to support. Vote for every GOP candidate you are given the opportunity to support, or it may very well be America no more!

Biden wants to tie Israel’s hands

Published

on

After Iran launched an extensive drone and missile attack against Israel, Iran’s president vowed to completely destroy Israel if it proceeds with a military response. In plain language, Israel is not allowed to react as any other country would after being attacked. That seems to be the opinion of many world leaders, including Joe Biden.

That’s like saying that the US had no right to retaliate after Japan’s attack on December 7th. This absurd policy applies only to Israel. If Iran launched missiles against the US, imagine what we would do in response. (Of course, with a wimp in the White House, there is a good chance that we would do nothing.)

On the evening of 13 April 2024, Iran launched hundreds of deadly missiles against various sites in Israel. Iran’s attack was presumably in retaliation for an Israeli strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus. Israel’s justification for its attack is that the Iranian consulate has been the center for Iran’s terrorist activities throughout the Middle East. The consulate “did not have diplomatic immunity,” according to attorney Alan Dershowitz, “because it was not being used for diplomatic purposes; it was being used to plan military attacks against Israel.”

With assistance from the US, the UK, neighboring Jordan and other nations, Israel successfully intercepted nearly all the missiles and drones. Despite the lack of damage, Iran’s intent clearly was to inflict serious harm. Iran underestimated Israel’s ability to defend itself. Now Iran’s president Ebrahim Raisi has vowed to completely destroy Israel if it proceeds with even the “tiniest invasion” of Iran.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country would be the one to decide whether and how to respond to the Iranian attack, brushing off calls for restraint. “The state of Israel will do whatever is necessary to defend itself,” Netanyahu said. “Everything is on the table right now,” said a source in the Israeli government. Israel possesses an impressive range of high-tech weaponry, including nuclear weapons and F35 fighter planes that can overwhelm Iran’s outmoded air force.

“Iran declared war on Israel by sending more than 300 bombs in Israel’s direction, aimed at civilian as well as military targets in Jerusalem and other locations,” said Alan Dershowitz. “As a matter of law and morality, Israel is entitled to respond to this act of war by overwhelming, even disproportionate, force against Iranian military targets.”

Biden has not supported Dershowitz’s argument. Instead, he has “sent a clear message to the mullahs that there would be no consequences for their rogue actions,” said Lisa Daftari, a leading Iranian-American expert. “What we are seeing is a manifestation of weak policies and the ayatollah’s correct read on American foreign policy.” Biden’s policy, said Yaakov Katz, a leading Israeli security expert, “does not work and the world’s strategy of diplomacy and sanctions is not effective. The world needs to shift gears and change the way it has tried to confront Iran.”

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe agreed that the Biden administration’s tepid policy has emboldened Iran. “Joe Biden’s reaction to that hit in Damascus sent a message to Iran and to the rest of the world that the US was not with Israel, that the US was reluctant to support Israel on this. And I think that emboldened Iran. And as one of the former intelligence officials in Iran said to me, with friends like Joe Biden, Israel doesn’t need more enemies.”

Biden has warned Israel not to take action, said Alan Dershowitz. “Biden wants Israel simply to proclaim victory and not respond appropriately. This will only encourage Iran to take further military action against Israel either directly or through its numerous proxies,” Dershowitz warns. “If the [Iranian] regime felt endangered, it could attack Israel with its nuclear weapons, as it has threatened to do. That is an important reason why Iran’s potential nuclear arsenal should be destroyed before it can be deployed.”

“This is the time to act,” Dershowitz concludes. “Iran has provided Israel and the United States with a complete legal and moral justification for destroying its nuclear weapons program and for beginning the process toward regime change. If we do not act now, it may be too late.”
