Could it be that otherwise disinterested Americans have been shaken from their “political ambivalence” thanks to the scourge of the ChiCom virus? It is entirely possible that Americans are awakening from their 50-year stupor to finally realize that the country is and has been under attack from within and without for decades.
In addition to the continuing lock-down of the country for suspicious reasons, this week’s release of documents that unambiguously demonstrate that unelected bureaucrats abused their power for hyper-partisan political motives is something that cannot be accepted in quiet by any thinking American. Is it a coincidence that these things are happening concurrently?
I happen to believe that everything that happens – or is made to happen – is exploited by the Left for political reasons. Witness the Democrat-media response to the ChiCom virus. They propagate doom and gloom and make common cause with the ChiComs in blaming President Trump for everything while offering no solutions or useful recommendations for anything. The Democrats and ChiComs (and globalists) are politically aligned because they have a common objective – to defeat President Trump in November and restore the plan to turn global leadership over to the authoritarian People’s Republic of China.
Many commentators have opined on various aspects of the problems we face. I’ve tried to make my own bit contributions for years on Twitter and then here at RedState while raising the alarm about the ChiComs and the Democrat Party. One of my pals, Lawrence Peter, a retired Navy intelligence officer, has succinctly summarized the three major attack vectors that our internal and external enemies are pursuing in their efforts to destroy our constitutional Republic and turn the world over to authoritarian globalists. Here is what he has to say:
There are at least three major attacks against the American system right now, and by extension, the post-WWII Western order as we have come to know it. These attacks are all intertwined: lose any one of them, and the America we know and love will likely be gone forever.
1. The attack on the West from the ChiComWuFlu. Whether deliberate act of commission or accidentally released and then exploited to the hilt, it seems clear that the ChiCom failure to inform the rest of the World what was transpiring was a deliberate act of omission. In that failure to inform, the ChiComs understood that power parity could best be maintained by bringing everyone else down. It is entirely possible that they sought to obfuscate their own economic troubles by wreaking havoc on the rest of world. Regardless, the strategy has worked effectively to inflict severe damage on the world economy.
2. The financial attack to the American economy, and by extension the Western World’s economy. There are many both within and without America – blue passport holders and others – who want to see America’s economy crash. Domestic enemies believe that, through a crashed economy (“It is the economy, stupid,” as Clinton advisor James Carville said), the re-election prospects of the 45th President will dim considerably. Democrat state governors and other interest groups also see the opportunity to expand their authoritarian power over the masses, to spread their agendas (Agenda 21, the 1619 project, the Green New Deal, etc.) camouflaged by an unstable economy. More money and hand-outs for the masses, more government control, increased government surveillance, and loss of civil liberties.
3. The attack on our civilian institutions, the Rule of Law, and the Constitution, as increasingly demonstrated through such matters as the General Flynn hoax, the Russia hoax, the Ukraine impeachment farce, and now the shutdown due to the ChiCom virus. These serial events are all designed in similar fashions and have one overarching characteristic. They confirm the arbitrary Rule of Man over the Rule of Law. In that, they are the most-deadly of the domestic malignancies in the American body politic. They cut precisely and intentionally on the long-held American tradition of equal justice under the Law. If there is no equal justice under the Rule of Law, if all are subject to the caprices of the Rule of Man, then everything else is but window dressing. Nothing, N.O.T.H.I.N.G. will matter (except, of course, our relationship with Our Maker and with our families) because our rulers will be unchallenged in their whimsical implementation of new rules and proscriptions.
These three attacks – the ChiCom WuFlu attack, the Financial Attack, and the Rule of Law Attack – all are culminating right now under the Administration of America’s 45th president. This is perhaps unsurprising, as there are no such things as coincidences in the political realm. On Inauguration Day, he promised among many things to never stop fighting for the citizens of America, and he promised to return power to the people from the controlling interests that have transmogrified the American dream into a nightmare and are destroying our constitutional Republic.
Perhaps President Trump did not realize it then, and many still do not realize it today, but the continuing success or horrible failure of this great American experiment will be determined in less than 180 days with the 3 November election. Even if POTUS is re-elected, the likelihood of his ultimately prevailing against all of the malign interests arrayed against America and his leadership/stewardship is indeterminate without substantial support from we Americans who will reelect him.
But, here’s what happens with certainty if he does not win re-election: the ChiComs establish themselves as the new global guarantor of order in the fashion they approve. America (and all European and other Western-oriented nations) becomes subservient second-tier nations subject to the international norms and directives as approved in Beijing and at the United Nations (controlled by Beijing). America as the world’s global financial leader is replaced, the dollar is no longer the international standard, and economic vitality and American GDP growth above 1% are not likely for whatever remaining years of life those reading this might enjoy (if ever). Hello, Caracas on the Potomac! Finally, and most importantly, the scales of American justice are forever broken, and the Constitution is relegated to the dustbin of history.
I think POTUS understands the stakes, too. Watch the short video below from 9 November 2018 and read this transcript, as best as I could make it:
“I will never forgive him for what he did to our United States Military,
by not funding it properly it was depleted, everything was old and tired
and I came in and I had to fix it.
And I’m in the process of spending tremendous amounts of money so
I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our military,
I’ll never forgive him for what he did in many other ways
which I”ll talk to you about in the future…“

This is an Apex Predator speaking: a carnivore, a T-Rex. They know it, and he knows they know it.
Do Americans understand what is at stake? I would like to think so – certainly some of us do. The 2016 election result established the best-case scenario for dealing with the “Swamp,” but much has been derailed through the three attack vectors summarized above. Frankly, I am surprised that some independent-minded gardeners have not already taken direct action to water the tree of liberty and accelerate the “draining.” Americans are patient until they are not. This president was brought in to fix the problems. And that is what he’s been doing from Day One.
I couldn’t agree with my pal more! This year’s election is the most important in my lifetime, as the fate of our constitutional Republic will be on the ballot.
I recognize some will be uncomfortable with such discussions – particularly about the imagery associated with “watering the tree of liberty” – but it is the rest of us who are uncomfortable with sitting back and saying nothing as we get more and more evidence of the reality of these three attack vectors and the associated corruption within American institutions. Many of us have served in the US military and/or within the intelligence community, and when we see a retired three-star general like James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, go on national TV and assert that the President of the United States of America is an “asset” of Vladimir Putin and Russia, yet behind closed doors and under oath say exactly the opposite, then we grow furious and see RED! I and many others have taken this oath (or others very similar) several times over our careers, and we are still faithful to what we swore:
“I, (state name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice, so help me God.”
The globalists, the Democrats and their RINO helpers, the Deep State, and the lickspittle media who enable all of their objectives believe they can anesthetize, marginalize, and bribe us while they destroy the country and our constitutional liberties. They seem to think that we will simply go quietly into the night without responding to their attacks on the country. They have underestimated us at their peril and will reap the whirlwind.
