Ol’ Remus has compiled a excellent cautionary look into how the human extinction movement has changed and adapted to MAGA and the dirt people color revolution won on 11-16. Specifically dis-armament of our great Republic.
This is a counter attack. Make no mistake, it is intended to become a blood letting no matter what. There are no other choices here. The various factions of marxian/transglobalist agenda, which includes the so very corrupt long groomed Amerikan Nomenklaturer class we are seeing in the DOJ/FBI/CIA/BLM, must attack MAGA in all its forms, physically, spiritually, and in particular provincially. It is the imperative, it must be destroyed at all costs, just as Alt-Right, Christianity, Patriotism, History, Culture, Science, Reason, Truth must be extinguished.
Its a big plate of agenda’s. But foremost is our guns. Our property first, among all the legitimate components, that our Arm’s represent. Of course they are weapons, and mighty fine ones on par with anything any army possess. The Long March and whatever corruption inherent to the human extinction movement’s natural shake-down extortion system of spoils and plunder spanning every facet in the sphere of American activity, can not proceed to it’s final goals long as untold unknown uncounted millions, ten, maybe 100’s of millions of dirt people are armed.
It smacks of desperation. I think their time table of “March Through The Institutions” is adrift, faulty, or behind schedule, and MAGA caught them with their pants down, and they have to through stately procession to the wind and jump the biggest shark of all.
A shark with teeth already an existential enemy.
Its not just here that it is clear they are determined to have their “October Revolution” come hell or high water. Personally I think the sonofabitches will end up sticking their dicks in a meat grinder, while the “leadership” abandons them wholesale when dis-armament backfires on them. But not after a great rendering of the fabric of urbania & suburbia. Many provincial redoubts will be a very hard nut to crack for the neo-bolsheviks. In particular ones which have endured the class and economic warfare waged against these particularly hardy, rebellious, defiant, and Christian minded small communities and precincts in mountainous and other less “civilized” enclaves such as Bayous and mountainous territory.
In anywise, Remus put together a banquet of thoughtful pieces on the subject of taking our guns.
This really is a most personal matter, it will be decided by this natural sovereign self determining truth. Not politics. Not by man made “law”. Not by force against us as armed dirt people. It will be a knife fight war. It should be. It needs to be. Our enemies must come to know how mistaken they are about us dirt people, real nice and close up personal like. They go too far.
Edmund Leighton, God Speed, 1900
Wim Aalast explains Leighton’s “God Speed” at The Epoch Times, 2012:
“In the scene, a knight clad in armor and ready to depart to war is leaving his beloved. She ties a red sash around his arm, which he is meant to return. This medieval custom—a superstition if you will—assured both parties that they would be reunited, alive and well. A griffin, symbol of strength and military courage, adorns the banister of the stairs that separate the couple”.
Leighton was 47 when he painted God Speed, perhaps the best known of his medieval themed works. He lived until 1922.
The orchestrated attempt by the NeverTrumpers to overturn the presidential election and punish errant voters, the de-platforming of the right by violence and intimidation, the criminalizing of dissent, content-based censorship down to the Diamond and Silk level—all this and more isn’t enough for some.
They’ve gone zero-sum. They envision war. A civil war. It gets complicated.
Uber-leftists Peter Leyden and Ruy Teixeira spell it out in, The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War, at Medium:
… there’s no bipartisan way forward. At some point, one side or the other must win — and win big. The side resisting change, usually the one most rooted in the past systems and incumbent interests, must be thoroughly defeated — not just for a political cycle or two, but for a generation or two.
Stomping out the vineyards stuff, ayewott? It’s getting some attention outside the blather-o’-sphere, as James Delingpole at Breitbart observes:
Kurt Schlichter replies to Jack Dorsey’s endorsement in his essay, Liberals Announce Plan to Crush Normal Americans in a New “Civil War”, at Town Hall:
They are correct when they say “at this juncture in our history, there’s no way that a bipartisan path provides the way forward.” Yep, true. They are also correct when they observe that, “America today does exhibit some of the core elements that move a society from what normally is the process of working out political differences toward the slippery slope of civil war.”
Yep, also true, and it ought to scare the hell out of them. If the liberals ever get their wish for a new civil war, my money is on the side with all the guns.
Francis Porretto offers this, in his essay, From The “You Will Be Made To Care” Files, at Liberty’s Torch:
Leyden and Teixeira might eventually regret having stated their core position… It’s time we took them at their word. We in the Right must resolve to fight as they do: a outrance. There are no longer any rules. There certainly isn’t a threshold of incivility or cruelty that anyone need respect.
At the end of an essay about gun control, very good by the way, Daniel Greenfield makes this observation about civil war, in his March For Our Lives Isn’t a Youth Movement, at Sultan Knish:
After Trump won, the left retreated from controlling us through elected offices to controlling us through unelected offices. Federal judges, the FBI, the media and major corporate monopolies have been pitted against the elected officials who represent the will of the people. This is the civil war we are now in.
Jesse Kelly makes the case for avoiding civil war by breaking up the country in his essay, It’s Time For The United States To Divorce Before Things Get Dangerous, at The Federalist:
The Left is not playing games. They are getting bolder, and they are getting more violent. They have no interest in rational compromises. Like all authoritarian ideologies, they want you to bow down before them or be destroyed for daring to resist.
To which Aesop replies, at Raconteur Report:
Lyman Stone, also at The Federalist, makes a detailed counter-argument to Kelly in his essay, To Suggest An ‘Amicable Divorce’ For America Is To Talk Civil War:
Every state has Blue America holding some of its territory, and virtually every state has Red America holding some of its territory! How exactly is this territory supposed to be peacefully divided up? Any division would leave huge stranded enclaves of dissidents, dissidents who would suddenly find themselves vastly politically outnumbered, unable to effectively preserve their way of life at all.
Well, maybe. The vote for or against secession in the 1860s was close in many states, but the line was drawn, “stranded enclaves” and all. Not the strongest argument.
If not civil war, is a breakup of states into smaller states too far out to take seriously? It’s how Maine and West Virginia came to be, for two. It’s already under way in California, reports Mac Slavo at SHTFPlan:
Venture capitalist Tim Draper said backers of what he has dubbed “CAL 3” would submit petitions with more than 600,000 signatures to election officials next week. The initiative needs signatures from 365,880 registered voters – five percent of the total votes cast for governor in the 2014 election – to qualify for the ballot … Breaking the state into three separate states would still require congressional approval. But Draper is hopeful.
Northern and southern California have wanted to be rid of each other for 160 of its 168 years as a state. Yes, this has been going on since the 1850s. The Pico Act of 1859 split the state on the 36th parallel, was passed by the California legislature and sent to DC for consent, but got caught up in pre-civil war secessionist politics and was put aside.
Later there was the attempt by northern California and southern Oregon to merge into a new State of Jefferson in 1941. It was by all accounts thisclosewhen we rose as one to defeat The Yellow Peril. Again it was put aside. More recently, the split of 1965 was passed by the Senate but killed by the Assembly, and the split of 1992 was passed by the Assembly but killed by the Senate.
US politics is, and always has been, pre-civil war in tone. But a formal civil war of the 1860s variety is unlikely. For one, states have been franchises of the federal government for too long. An extraterrestrial would see them as something akin to the post-war governments of occupied Japan or Poland. It’s understandable, the 1861-1865 civil war was a stern memo that membership in the union is no longer voluntary. In this sense, both the Union and the Confederacy surrendered to DC.
Nor have states had representation, as states, in Congress since the passage of the 17th Amendment in 1912 which provides for the direct election of senators by popular vote rather than by state governments. Unlike the 1860s, a senator’s loyalty is to his federal career path. All politics may be local but government is not.
For another, each state’s former Constitutional militia is part of the National Guard, legally under the control of governors but thoroughly integrated with the US armed forces. They, and such state-only military units as there are, would be instantly federalized. Militias without a state charter would be treated as terrorist outfits in a civil war.
Which leaves ad hoc irregulars, partisans and several other forms of insurgency. If we’re to see military violence on home ground, this is what we’ll have. It’s “ambush and atrocity” warfare, worse than a classic civil war, it feeds on revenge, goes on longer and ends in a bloodbath by the victor. No side—there are always more than two—would recognize neutral bystanders. There would be no home front, the notion of “safe spaces” would simply not apply.
We can analyze and reason all we want, but we don’t get to decide if factions opt for militarized violence on a national scale. There’s little we can do except protect our families, ourselves and our community. And if it needs to be said, stay away from crowds. A crowd would come to you soon enough.
Reader and friend of Woodpile Report A.T. informs me yer ol’ WPR, recently blocked by the US Cyber Command, is again accessible to readers in the military services. My heartfelt thanks to those who made the effort, unasked, to reverse the ban.
The quote for this week comes from Mike’s essay, Lawless Thuggery, at Cold Fury. He’s speaking of an enraged Deep State:
Miguel Monjardino discusses the the Peloponnesian War and a student reenactment of Brasidas’s night operation, in his essay, In the Footsteps of Brasidas, at City Journal:
Night, students quickly learn, changes everything… “It was so different at night. The grass was tall and wet, there were lots of holes, brambles all over the place, and we fell several times at the start. We talked and explored but had doubts about the right path until the end” …
Balance, agility, physical coordination, strength, and cooperation were essential on this section of the walk. Things got dark and claustrophobic when we crossed the woods.
Woodpile Report Global Headquarters & Jiffy Screen Door Repair is located in a “dark sky” region. On a moonless night you can’t see your hand in front of your face, but by way of compensation, after night vision fully sets in the Milky Way looks like the Hubble photographs. The brighter stars seem to hang not far out of reach, as if they may become tangled in the treetops. Only at sea have I seen its equal.
Go woods cruising without using a flashlight, but carry an ultra-dim “moonlight” flashlight as a backup, with a red filter to preserve your ‘night eyes’. At first this seems pointless and disorienting. Senses only lightly used are struggling to emerge in their fullest form. Let them. When they find their natural level and work together it’s a different kind of vision, a survival capability no one can buy off the shelf. And be of good cheer, the owls and coyotes know exactly where you are so you’re never really lost.
James Lawrence notes the left’s embrace of Antifa and the stalled Alt-Right in this essay, Thoughts on the State of the Right, at Affirmative Right:
The original Alt-Right conformed to the 4GW principle of ‘hugging the civilians’, forcing the enemy to infuriate and radicalise ordinary people by attacking them in order to get to the guerrillas. Clinton again fell into this trap, responding to the rise of the Alt-Right by smearing half the American population as ‘deplorables’.
Vox Popoli takes a wider view in his essay, Physiognomy is more than real, at his blog:
So many people fail to understand that when I say the Alt-Right is inevitable, I am not merely engaging in rhetoric. I mean that quite literally and I am speaking in unvarnished dialectic. Just as communism is unviable because it denies economics and feminism is unviable because it denies biology, conservatism is unviable because it denies inequality. All of these unviable political identities have set themselves against science, history, and observable reality. Remember, the red pill is reality.
Guilty. I either don’t know, or barely know, who’s who and what’s what in the DC kerfuffle about Russian meddling in the election and how it devolved into the FBI acting as Mizz Stormy’s collection agency, or defending her honor, or what ev-ver. Wait. I do know there’s a guy named Mueller, oh oh, and one named Comey too. See? Goebbels was right, repetition works.
Palace gossip and “behind the scenes” intrigue holds no interest for me. Yeah yeah, it’s critical and crucial and pivotal. They say. Actually, it’s not. It’s what makes places like Zimbabwe places like Zimbabwe. Worse, it’s boring, much like the “he said, she said” stuff in a big stakes divorce trial. After a few days you wish one would have a fatal stroke while testifying, and it wouldn’t matter which one.
Change subject. Around here it’s said Spring hasn’t arrived until the peepers have seen snow three times. Two more to go.
Change subject again. A reminder. When I process the old photos for Woodpile Report, I treat them as historical resources, meaning I bring out the details in the highlights and shadows. This makes ’em look sort of flat, not snappy like yer used to seeing. Making ’em “pop” is easy to do, revealing every last nuance they contain is not, and it’s pretty much always one or the other.
Well gang, lots-o’-ground to cover today. Get your popcorn near to hand, the usual suspects are still up to no good. Let’s crack open Yer Ol’ Woodpile Report and examine the dreary specifics, right after this old ad.
