And so it begins

Biden is promising to pass a law against domestic terrorism and establish a new task force to route out extremists. Looks like the hunt for "populists" could be starting. Will this be pre-crime? "Are you now or have you ever been a supporter of Donald Trump?" All the congress critters that voted to support the election objection are requested to be unseated.

Yet I'm left wondering why DJT ever got into this in the first place and if those conditions that prompted him to run for the top office still apply. So I'm keeping my conclusion open until the evening of January 20. We are still looking at probabilities.

Who knows. Bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, 2 outs and needing a grand slam.

How about "4 more years?" Truth is coming. If in a city be prepared to stay inside for the 10 days or so. Shit storm may occur.

This is going to be a sober

This is going to be a sober post. So take responsibility for yourself. That means observing your reactions and being self honest. There is not alot of the later left these days.

I took the liberty to copy and paste a piece of Cernovich's recent post. He gun shotted quite a few but this one is particularly disturbing and unfortunately within the realm of plausibility. You can go over to twitter if you still have your account and haven't moved to Parler and Gab (you'd better think very carefully about that. FUCKING be smart about what's coming and what you need to do. Think through things before you take action. I've seen the collective sentiment make the same mistake over and over again and this time it was fatal. Lifes will be ruined forever)

What happened in Mexico is small compared to other times in history.

The U.S. is poised for a post-911 crackdown on civil liberties - which was a disaster then and will be a bigger disaster now. You cannot enforce authoritarianism against 40% of the country. To do so is to incite a "civil war," which won't be what people think.

Capitol LARP'ers watched too much Bravehart and 1776 stuff. They are in an old model of war. A current model of war will be 4GW, which is the worst possible way of having a war, because it never ends. You end up not with Balkanization, but the cartelization of society.

Balkanization = Yugoslavia split up into sides, fought, had genocide, and now there are separate countries. Carelization = Mexico and how the cartels control the government. Military units defected to take control of territory. They become their own governments. It never ends.

What happens when no one believes in the idea of America anymore? You have support people in military who follow orders. Drone operators. What happens if the real hitters give up? The idea that this can't happen ignores history - recent history in fact. Just look at Mexico.

We are in unbelievably perilous times. Just as people who didn't see Trump's rise and dismissed it, because they know it all, think they can just put the boots down the necks of 40% of the country. I just can't believe what I am watching, and what will *obviously* happen.

It's not the Q people or fat LARP'ers I worry about. It's that the oppression becomes so severe that you get what happened in Mexico. A Special Forces Group says, "F*ck this." Then what? There is 0 reason to believe It Can't Happen Here. We are not special.

I won't go into tactics, not only for reason to not educate bad people, but for others. If you watched the Capitol storm you no doubt asked - What if these weren't fat LARP'ers, lost young men, and Q dummies? What if this had been *real* guys?

This narrative isn't new to some of you but likely you forgot. Even when it was paraded infront of your eyes. His post either triggers your reactive mind to where you heard the information before or you draw a blank and might even dismiss it like so many things people tend to dismiss ideas because of their sense of "it's not going ot happen here"

Did anybody see the greatest stock market climb in modern history? Or did you laugh at such a thing when you saw it first time? Some of you did.

Even when COVID was raging in China and I was warning people, they said it was all noise. TRUE!

Let me show you an example in history of *real* guys. Some of you have seen it before, and I'll be impressed if even one of you remembers. Or what I said what Russia was planning back in 2015-2016 in preparation for a new war

Here's a theme and variation of what Cerno is talking about. Some parts have been redacted to protect your conscious censors.

Let's review what has transpired in the last few days.

The word on the street is that the organizer for Stopthesteal is in deep trouble and seems to have disappeared from his revolutionary talk. Well that's sad and very disturbing. But it is what it is.

He'd be enemy number one for the deep state. Anybody that organizes a revolution.

They weren't able to anticipate the outcome and the consequences. They underestimated the enemy and they had no exit plan.

Now this is going to hurt. It was much the stupidity and psychological operations on the right that lead them to their demise as it was the evil power of the left.

There was no plan, there were no sealed envelopes, no videos of politicians lying in bed with little boys, but even up to the 12th hour there were anonymous writings being put out, very difficult to corroborate, about keeping up the hope. Some still filling you with optimism about Trumps 2024 bid.

They took out Giuliani, Flynn, the entire Kraken legal team and millions of accounts wiped out and AOC yelling, HOLD THEM RESPONSIBLE!!! (the amount of accounts wiped out is second hand)

Let's now all move to alternative websites in a polarized world where my freedom of speech won't be encroached upon.

These websites will be sooo monitored.

If you go to the IMF website, they are already outlining how they will ruin the financial well being of any dissident and free thinker.

How long before Scott Adams goes back to writing about how to be succesful? Cerno writes about Ayuhausca ceremonies or Styx opens an esoteric bookstore and gives classes on alchemy?

Do you think I'm going to spend the next four years reading about how unreasonable the policies and rhetoric of the left are? NOPE!! I need to be forward looking and put every ounce of energy on PEAK FINANCIAL SURVIVAL which give me enough leverage to navigate what's coming.

Trump didn't clean one ounce of the swamp up. Nothing. He raised awareness and brought their criminality into public discussion to the point it no longer needed to be discussed in a Conspiracy forum like DOTS. It went Mainstream.

MAGA was equally lead over a cliff by use of psychological tactics that gave them unrealistic visions of what one man could do who was betrayed at every level of society, for four years. So like Cernovich, Trump wasn't evil but maybe naive?

Did Cernovich tell Ali Don't Do It? Nobody did. They under estimated the tactics of the left and assumed they had rights left to protest. If Trump couldn't hold back the flood gates of the left, all the leaders supporting the charge were going to be hung out to dry.

This is gay florist, and the Bundy's up two octaves. Noble in their quest, but ignorant of the consequences because they don't know what they don't know. Never read Machiavelli. Never read Plato and Aristotle and Never read Sun Tzu. Almost like a guy that never read a trading and investment book telling others what they should do with their money. Like Cerno said, we aren't in 1776 and the globalist are not fighting with kinetic warfare but it's information and the digital landscape that controls the population. We tell them what we are thinking and our actions before we do it. A 1st grader could put a defense on an enemy that signals his next move.

It's vanity to martyr yourself and to not assess a situation before you act. Unclear what your actions will accomplish and attack by being out flanked by a larger stronger force. You now understand my response to a man that was going to fight the battle at ground level attacking people who were following the dictates of the state? SUICIDE.

Now your place. They can control you but they can't control what you think if you don't signal it and broadcast it. You maintain sovereignty over self even if the state denies you sovereignty.

My rule #1 is never enter a large crowd. Self preservation.

It's not that I won't fight for a cause. I'll fight when I have a plan and see the way to victory. None of these actions had any chance of victory.

The story of Cyllarus and Hylonome. Not one of your more common bed time stories.

Cyllarus(Trump) was handsome, brave, charismatic and well liked. Hylonome, his wife (MAGA) was devoted to him.

They were at a party where everyone is drinking (large gathering, people not using reason)

Somebody shot Cyllarus with spear in the heart!!

Hylonome was shocked and overcome by grief at seeing Cyllarus wounded and tried to keep her lover here but she could not so watching her husband die, she threw herself on the spear and killed herself. (stopthesteal)

Cyllarus is associated with going to bat for your side, often without thinking it through. Where we impulsively lay it on the line or take a risk. Cyllarus can point to where we defend someone or something without thinking it through first.

Hylonome Impulsively giving into grief. . Going from the ideal to total loss. Where we are so attached to something or someone that we lose all reason. Hylonome impulsively committed suicide. She took no consideration for her future, paid no attention to the fact that life could indeed go on for her, even without what she loved most. Hylonome was in love but she was also short sighted. She is associated with irrational devotion and with the fear of feeling and/or of dealing with deep grief or loss.

I've said before Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" is part of this sentiment. I just never gave you the details. Survival is the prime directive.

All successful revolutions have an earmark. The right leader, the right organization, the right moment in time. I had this story on my mind for two weeks prior to the protest. Even Trumps vice president betrayed him and many members of his cabinet from day one. Not that he deserved it but the writing was on the wall. The trend never ended.

You think the flow of information is going to be as open and honest as it was the last ten years by those that took the time to hone those skills to give service to others who are less inclined to do the work? NOT A CHANCE.

The more you know, the less you are going to say.

The Prime Directive. SURVIVAL.

I have yet to see the idea's put out that I think are necessary for that to be done and done well. It's either people aren't thinking through it or waiting for somebody to tell them.

Cognitive dissonance enters the mind when we are confused. We hate confusion. We hate not knowing what gold is going to do or what is going to happen in the future or what something somebody posts even minds.

Confusion isn't the problem because every human encounters it. What is the problem what we decide to do with it. Often we fill our mind with platitudes and memes to erase the confusion and convince ourselves that we know how things are going to work out but we are no longer in a clear state of thinking especially if we forecasted wrong and we need to change on a dime if things go against us.

Well my jpgs of a historical

Well my jpgs of a historical narrative where a ruling body, a senate was gunned down in cold blood didn't show up. As Cerno called it *real people* with real skill sets. The strategy, the tactics, the weapons used and the over taking of a great society and the enlightened people that saw it coming before it came. It was shown here before.

With no explanation other than "repeatedly going against our community standards,"

has blocked me from managing my page. Never have we received notice of violating community standards in the past and nowhere is the offending post identified.

Ron Paul

The only thing we posted to Facebook today was my weekly "Texas Straight Talk" column, which I have published every week since 1976.

Ron Paul

Very disturbing news: YouTube has pulled an episode of the Ron Paul Liberty Report and issued a "warning" that any more violations will result in our not being able to put up more programs. The episode was a news report on a Trump rally - they said it is "medical misinformation."

Ron Paul

@RonPaul

Dec 22, 2020The decision by

@YouTube

to take the program down and issue a warning makes no sense. We are a news and analysis program. Why take down a program that is several weeks old out of the blue?

Churchill and I share many similarities

We're pudgy. We like whisky. We wear hats. We are fatuous gasbags. We both know how to turn a phrase

'From Amazon to FaCIAbook to Parler, a Techno-Woke Iron Curtain has descended across the internet'

Not Churchill

"I am Thuycdides And This is

"I am Thuycdides And This is My Peloponnesian War"

Thucydides's Trap refers to the natural, inevitable discombobulation that occurs when a rising power threatens to displace a ruling power...[and] when a rising power threatens to displace a ruling power, the resulting structural stress makes a violent clash the rule, not the exception.

[8]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thucydides_Trap

Herodotus used to entertain the crowds with stories of demi-gods and mythology. Seem familiar?

Thucydides. Well, he just wanted to look at Cause and Effect and he removed the demi-Gods from the story and he became our first Historian.

What action occurred and what effect it will produce in the future. A Zeitgeist if you will.

Sparta just launched it's attack against the Athenians right in front of your eyes!

The history books will write that January 6th, 2021 was the shot that started the 2nd US Civil War. Not all inflections are the same.

The oligarchs held a review of the hoplite class and selected 100 of their enemies and compelled the assembly to execute them and "established a close oligarchy in the town—a revolution which lasted a very long while, although effected by a very few partisans." -Thucydides

It was the plague that killed AThens.

USA is like Athens.a democratic (republic), economic, & culturally rich society and one day, it met it's demise as a republic..

Snopes on NY bill A416

'What's True

Introduced during the 2021-2022 New York State legislative session, Assembly Bill A416 would amend public health laws to allow for the removal of “cases, contacts and carriers of communicable diseases who are potentially dangerous to the public health.”'

"What's Undetermined

Requirements, locations, and other logistical information for such isolation centers are not outlined. Furthermore, precedence suggests that it is unlikely such a bill would pass."

People who supported Trump

People who supported Trump are feeling betrayed. Cerno on top of the list. Trump never intended to fulfill his promises. Persuasion.

I guarantee that you heard it here on these forums 4-5 years ago first.

You were screwed from both sides. It's a hard pill to swallow, but then again, you're grown ups right?

Cerno

@Cernovich

Trump supporters are hope porn addicts. Goes like this: MAGA person says, “Trump is considering ____.” When _____ doesn’t happen, people say, “At least Trump tried!” And then another porno plays and it starts over again.

Go centrist, I didn't say libertarian, and stay centrist for your entire life. It's an immutable principle that unless you take out the corrupt institutions, the players don't matter. Ignoring sacred, immutable principles guarantees repeated experience. And the system will manufacture exactly what you want.

Tough lessons.
