I would like to preface this post with the following thought. Never depart for Moscow after the Ides of March. Unless you like Russian winters, of course. Bear with me as I explain how this current fiasco known as The Corona War comes into clearer focus. And how mistakes in timing can be the same thing, while yet being mirror-opposites.
Let me digress.
It seems my last missive has accomplished at least one thing; it has awakened the collective memory of Kent State in 1970. It feeds my hope that there are still vestigial antibodies in our body politic, like those produced in the failed Russian Revolution of 1905. Antibodies that will prevent it’s replay here in America, as the forces of revolution makes their next moves. A replay today that will hopefully produce the opposite effect that the revolution of 1917 did in Russia.
First, as a matter of conscience, let me be clear about one thing. I was on both sides of the Vietnam controversy, at least four times each. Did I buy the truth each side claimed? Oh yes. And did I then buy their same lies? Absolutely. As a young idiot, what could you expect? I was of the generation fed both truth and lies by both sides. I wanted to believe…anything! Finally, I did.
What was it I finally discerned about this most divisive period in our past, going back to the Civil War? Simply this: it was the right war, at the right time, in the right place. Led by the wrong people, in the wrong way, for the wrong reason—to preserve the Empire. Instead of our faith. And our nation. Those last two things must go together if either is to survive.
What then would have been the right reason for this war? You’ll have to excuse me, as I have to step into the time machine (known as History) to reach back and find the word so thoroughly despised today here in the Empire. That word is Crusade.
No, no, not some silly (and self-destructive) Neo-Prot version of resistance to evil. Not some State-led WWI ‘Expeditionary Force’, or even a Korean War ‘Police Action’ that sought to extend the civilizing balm of Democracy. No, no, no! There was only one reason to be in Vietnam, and that was to make the world safe for Christianity! But because of the multitudinous versions laying claim to that same Christian name, the effort was doomed from the beginning. Some would say it was designed to fail. It could well have been, in some back rooms, somewhere. But let’s look at a fact that is indisputable.
That fact is this. Vietnam (before it’s North/South division in 1954) was a French colony. As were Laos and Cambodia. As such, Viet Nam had been effectively proselytized by the French missionaries from the mid-1600’s. By 1960, it was over 10% Catholic. Which is more than could be said of France. Which is why they lose their wars.
In other words, Viet Nam was going to reach a tipping point if something (revolutionary) wasn’t done to halt this gradual yet stupendous change. The first percent was much tougher to achieve than the tenth. But the twentieth percent wouldn’t take near as long as the first ten. After all, people had eyes. They could see the difference in the lives of these Catholics (and their families) and the lives lived by the rest that hewed to the old ways of Animism, Shamanism, Buddhism, Confucianism, etc.
People could also tell the reason for what their eyes told them. This western faith gave people hope! And not just temporal hope, although, after the initial sacrifices of the brave first believers, this too began to become clear.
Here’s the bottom line. The (French) Empire was gone. Long gone. But Catholicism remains. Persecuted, but remains. And persecution will, as always, make it grow faster. Regardless of which tyrant rules it.
What is the point? That the war was good? It was bad? That we were idiots to take the handoff from the feckless French? And repeat their same mistake? Well, just what exactly was this mistake we seem to keep making here in the West, whether French or American? Simple. We can’t recognize the difference between nation and empire. We conflate them, at the urging of the Emperor, who beats a nationalistic cadence on his imperial drums. And like the dutiful but totally ignorant Christians we are, we fall in line. And then fall in battle. All for the glory of the Empire. Hail Caesar!
In fact, we not only fall for it once, we do it again and again in the same places. Look at Europe. Look at Viet Nam. Yes, Viet Nam. We’re fighting it again. Didn’t you notice? We’re fighting the same bastards. Only an idiot could miss this. We’re still fighting the same guys who backed the whole war. That’s right. China. And, truth be told, Russia. And once again, we fall for the same tricks. Déjà vu, Dien Bien Phools.
I know, you can’t follow me there. Too far in the past. And the future. Because you’re locked in (and Locked Down) in the present, right? Well, some people remember it. But only fragments. Here’s an example about Kent State. Not a bad one, but again, too locked in to ‘the now’.
I’ll stop trying to confuse you. Let me come right out and say it. We are fighting the same bastards, and if we fight it the same way, we will lose again. Here’s what I mean. This whole Corona Crisis is actually the (open) beginnings of the next World War. Ostensibly against China, this time. And with newer weapons. Weapons of deceit.
There are subversive operations that precede every open war. It is vital that we identify and then resist the enemy’s primary ally. Their Fifth Column. When you use that term, you are effectively saying that there are traitors among us. Yes, traitors. Who would that be? Three guesses…and now, to our CNN correspondent in Beijing.
So here is my take. No matter how this Corona thing began (careless handling vs. planned release of the virus) the horse is out of the barn. The cat is out of the bag. And now the war begins in earnest. Confusing earnest.
War? Yes, war. But there’s a silver lining for us. It happened too soon for our enemies. All of them, both in Peking and Washington. And just as Hitler left too late for Moscow in 1940, the Chinese/Washington assault began too soon. Too soon, because it left an opening for America to recover. Not from the fatalities, awful as they are. No, the problem for our enemies, all of them, is that too much time has been left to recover from the Economic Lockdown. Which has been the real threat all along. An economically weakened America is a defeated America.
Here’s the problem for our enemies: the virus had to emerge in the flu season. Regardless of whether the viral release was intended or not, it happened. Just like December 1941, once things get started, you have to play the hand your dealt. And in this case, just like at Pearl Harbor, the damage inflicted may have been insufficient to cripple to behemoth of America. The USS Arizona was sunk, but no flat-tops were there. How fortuitous. The act was craven, regardless of the provocation or effect.So here then are the only questions that matter. How will we react? And who is the enemy here?
The second of those questions is the most important: who is the enemy? Is it the virus, as so many seem to think? Or is it the bureaucracy (CDC, NIH., etc.) who seem incapable with dealing with it? Is it an ineffective Trump? Or an over-reaching Blue State demand that we cease all livelihood, holding our breath waiting on ventilators for an impossible vaccine? Just who is it that is the enemy?
As long as there is a failure to identify the real enemy, our reactions are dis-united. Meaning, we cannot react in unison. Meaning, we cannot fight together, as one.
Meaning, we’re toast.
I contend the enemy has overplayed his hand. Regardless of his allies (the Fifth Column), our enemy has marched too soon. How so? Because, as I stated earlier, there is still time to recover, if we find the will to reject The Lock Down. That effort has begun. Everything hinges on this effort. Why? Because, if the economy can recover enough before November, The Donald can still win. Which is exactly what our enemies, all of them, had hoped to forestall. Let’s face it, if this hadn’t happened, he was on the road to re-election. That is the whole point.
Who was afraid of this eventuality? Obviously, everyone who would be indicted in January of 2021, starting with the top echelons of the FBI, CIA, DOJ holdovers, the State Department under 44, etc. That alone gives you the insight on why they would try anything (including the ruin of their own 401-K’s) to avoid jail.
Who else feared this November reckoning? China, of course, as Donald would increase the constriction of the Chinese economy. An economy that was built upon IP theft, currency manipulation, critical materials monopolization, market-dumping, as well as a host of other techniques (think of the colonization of American academia). Guess whose daughter (Pres. Xi) just graduated from Harvard? There’s another bunch of traitors.
All of these areas were in Donald’s gun sights. And the Tariff War that has sparked the Corona Offensive was only the opening salvo. Our enemies knew this. And they knew Donald would continue to broaden the war across all fronts if he were re-elected. Why? Because he’s a Nationalist, not an Imperialist.
Was there anybody else afraid of what November might bring? How about the Fifth Column of the ‘American’ Media. The same people who covered the tracks of the Deep (and Broad) State mentioned above, as well as the Chinese domination of our economy. And don’t forget all the Globalist-Capitalists who gleefully shipped American jobs overseas. The Fifth Column covered their asses also. As well as Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein’s too.
That covers a lot of territory, no? A whole lot of People Magazine people have a dog in this fight. Is there anyone else? I would say yes. There is another big player. But nobody notices, even though they are supposedly the true Boogey Man in the press on every other faux issue. That would be Russia. More on that later. For now, the previous categories will do just fine.
In any event, just as going to Moscow is best done at the beginning (and not the end) of Spring, launching a bioweapon is best done right before an election. Say, in September. Think of where Donald would be, in the polls, if the election was tomorrow. And if the Democrats had anyone viable. Two big problems, Komrade. It ain’t September, and there ain’t no ready substitute for Joe. Especially since Cuomo showed his true face with the beatings in Central Park last weekend. What an idiot. A little compassion, a little reserve, and he’s be in like Flynn. No, not Mike Flynn. Wrong guy.
It comes down to this. Will we break out of The Lock Down in time to salvage the marketplace? Can we get back to work in time to re-build the confidence that undergirds the American psyche? It’s all about attitude, you know. Outlook is everything. If Donald can get the market above 27,000 and people can openly go out to dinner without masks by late October (that’s 6 months), then Donald’s got a chance. Which means we have a chance. A pretty good chance, if the antibodies hold up.
Take a look at this. NYPD cops saying they don’t want to be pawns in the Blue State Lockdowns. Evidently, there’s a better than even chance that a lot of the cops won’t co-operate with the Deep State. Lot’s of stories, everywhere, of protests, and reactions to enforcement attempts, showing that the situation is fluid. All we have to do is to continue to violate the terms of our probation. There’s too many of us to enforce it, if we all mis-behave.
But let’s get back to the real point. We are now at war, whether we acknowledge it or not. And the primary enemy is China. And her (seemingly) invisible ally, The Fifth Column. Regardless of how this whole virus assault occurred, two things are obvious. One, it has happened, and the momentum will carry all parties forward, ceteris paribus. The second is that all players must be opportunistic, to their own immediate advantage. Here is the important point. If this thing did start ‘accidentally’ (that is, before anyone was truly prepared to do it, regardless of who initiated it), then everyone is in a reactive mode. Plans don’t matter. They may not even exist.
Gains, on the other hand, must be taken when available. And losses must be cut when necessary. Everyone is on their own, at least for now. Which means China is under the gun. Literally. She must flex her muscles now, ready or not. Same for us. That is the definition of conflict. Nobody can stop the momentum of the avalanche. China cannot back down, whether from a ‘face’ position or a geo-political position. She must attempt to wreak maximum damage on us while the time allows. She may never get another (or better) chance. And she knows it.
She must attempt to exploit every advantage, because if Donald wins again, China is in for a long period of economic contraction. Societally, this is dangerous to Communist leadership, after 30 years of economic expansion. Expectations have risen too high to expect total servility from the masses. Especially from the young ones. Look at Hong Kong if you doubt me. That means it’s all on the line, right now. Forget the long game. If you lose this round it’s over. And they know it.
In the same vein, the Fifth Column (both media and corporate) feels the same pressure. None of them cares about being American anymore. None of them cares for the nation. Their only affection is for The Empire (whether it has an Anglo or Asian capital). Both contenders for the title vie for their Fifth Column’s favor. Because both contenders (and the Fifth Column) want the same thing: an enslaved populace, world-wide. Which is how the Lockdown is playing out, of course.
The American public, still nationalist at heart, has begun to understand this. Both Reds and Blues are starting to see things more clearly. And they resent it. They have begun to hate the Empire. And to look for our missing Nation. And our missing wills.
The people understand where their jobs have gone. They understand we no longer produce our own medicines. They understand we can’t make our toys without Chinese involvement. They’re even beginning to see they don’t even need those time-and-attention-wasting toys. They are seeing that we have become beholden to foreign ownership. And they don’t like it. China is the visible enemy. And the Fifth Column is their ally in our midst. It is becoming clear to everyone. That is our only advantage. China, and her threat to us, is the one thing that can quickly unify America, the Nation. And destroy the Fifth Column, the traitors. And, by extension, The Empire.
It’s time for a real Crusade. We have a real enemy. We have our real traitors. All we need is unity. All we have to do is remember the Lesson of Viet Nam. Don’t try and make the world safe for Democracy. Instead, let’s make America safe for Christianity. This may be our last chance. Our last chance to regain our heritage.
How do we do this? I’ve told you before. There’s only one way. We have to know ourselves first. Who do we really want to be. American Citizens or Imperial Troopers? We have to make up our minds. Because only then can we truly know our enemy. And only then can we can fight them effectively, with a united will. In a real Crusade. A crusade for the Nation and not for Empire.
As I said in the last line of my book, Resist the Empire!
Regardless of where its capital is.
