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!

The 90-year Shame of the New York Times

Despite its constant lies, propaganda, and censorship, the New York Times is regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’

Published

on

The New York Times deliberately buried the story known as the Terror-Famine, in 1932 and 1933, which astoundingly killed 3.9 to 7.0 million Ukrainians, at least one out of every eight people, perhaps one out of every four people.

The editors at the Times were well aware that the famine was orchestrated by Joseph Stalin who forbade outside food and aid shipments, confiscated household food items, and restricted the mobility of Ukrainian citizens.

What made Stalin do this to a region known as “the world’s breadbasket”? He sought to punish independence-minded Ukrainians, quash anyone who represented a threat to his totalitarian government, and vanquish Ukraine’s small farms in favor of Soviet state-run collectives. Stalin lost no sleep over the legions of emaciated bodies, near death, scratching for any morsel of food they could find.

Maniacal and Mendacious

Why did The New York Times bury this heart-wrenching, world-shaking story? Then, as now, their leftist bent was so intense and so all-encompassing that they couldn’t help themselves. The blunt truth is that they do not care who is hurt as long as socialist/Marxist/communist ideology prevails on earth.

In another 10 years, it will be at least 100 years since the Times and other heavily left-leaning organizations, which today comprise the highly biased ‘mainstream media,’ have been dominant.

In 2121, one hundred years from now, is it realistic to believe that the facade which the mainstream media has foisted on Americans and on free people around the globe will not continue to dominate?

Will their maniacal ideology, somehow, finally be exposed by some new form of information dissemination or some fundamental shift in media coverage?

Sheeple at the Trough

Just how biased and detrimental their slanted news coverage has been to humanity, globally, is difficult to fathom. For decades on end, when you prop up socialist, Marxist, or communist regimes, are you helping anyone?

The mainstream media has held a news and information monopoly for so long, so skillfully, that the facade is not remotely understood by those in its spell, and bitterly denounced by those who see the mainstream press for what it really is. In the long run, truth generally prevails.

Even today, after five years of attempting to prove it, not a shred of evidence indicates that Donald Trump, his administration, or his campaign colluded with Russia.

Still, you have Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and all the other dolts in Congress who will readily appear on TV and spew lies. They play the ‘talking head’ game with sympathetic hosts and continue the guise, holding sway over those who don’t know how to find out the truth.

A Stranglehold for the Ages

The stranglehold that the Left and the mainstream media has on humanity leads to some intriguing philosophical questions. Even before the mass media came into being, has there always been some entity that enforced its will upon the unwitting masses?

Throughout history, dictators and other rulers imposed their version of the truth on the unwitting masses. Even in societies where news and information was somewhat freely exchanged, has there always been a faction that sought to slant reality and the will of others? It seems likely.

In the 21st century, roughly half of the U.S. and roughly half of the globe are still subject to Leftist manipulation. Despite all the information sources that exist today, why does so much of the world still fall for obviously manufactured and manipulated news?

How can people keep tuning in to CNN or MSNBC, or for that matter the nightly news on ABC, NBC, or CBS? How many times does CBS have to be caught red-handed doctoring the news, slanting stories on 60 Minutes, and laying traps for people like Governor Ron DeSantis, only to be exposed?

And then, within a matter of days, having learned nothing, CBS reverts right back to more of their insidious ways of presenting information.

Living with Perpetual Lies

How often can The New York Times offer a story the latter proves to be completely untrue, and its editors knew was untrue at the time, and yet its readership is unfazed?

How can the Times continue to be regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’? What tidal wave of human understanding, once and for all, needs to occur before we universally recognize highly biased reporting sources for what they are?

In the U.K., news publications openly advocate a position, left or right, and don’t play pretend. Consumers understand the bias that each media outlet or newspaper maintains, can read articles, and judge them accordingly.

In the U.S., the mainstream press continues to push lie that they offer an objective, balanced view of what’s happening in the world. How can they continue to do this? Sadly, enough fools buy what they say… lock, stock, and barrel.
