A coup d’état is a “game of uncertainty where people tend to choose the side they believe most other actors support.” According to author Naunihal Singh, in his book, Seizing Power: The Strategic Logic of Military Coups, it becomes a game of “numbers” to create the illusion that all power and support is on the side of the attempted takeover. As they work to create that illusion, they are simultaneously working to remove all opposition to their plan. This is where we are today.
1. Manipulate Information (Take over the media)
In a coup attempt, this is called the “Coordination Theory,” in which it “is mandatory for the rebels to take over the main TV and radio stations, in order to create a fait [accompli] (The feeling that something has already been accomplished and cannot be changed.)”
We see this strategy in play by liberals who insist that Biden is leading in the polls in numerous battleground states, despite the fact that he hasn’t been out campaigning, he can’t put together a cohesive sentence, and he could barely get a few hundred people to show up to his rallies when he did campaign. Yet we are told daily that polls show Biden winning—via the coup accomplices—the media.
But according to Singh, it’s not enough to take over the media. It is the content of the information delivered which is of paramount importance: “The conspirators do not need to waste time rumbling about their righteousness. Instead, they have to hammer home the idea that they have already won, and that most important actors have already pledged their support for the coup (p.29).”
Joseph Goebbels, the Propaganda Minister under Hitler in Germany from 1933-1945 (yes that was his job title) stated, “It would not have been possible for us to take power or to use it in the ways we have without the radio.”
Step 2. Defund the police
Police are always targeted for removal in a coup attempt to remove opposition. This was done in Hitler’s day by his military leader, Hermann Goering, who helped pave the way for Hitler’s success. In 1933, Goering quickly rose through the ranks and set up concentration camps for political opponents to crush any resistance. (Just as we see happening in China today.)
Named Prussian Minister of the Interior and Commander-in-Chief of the Prussian police, he was then able to remove hundreds of officers and thousands of ordinary policemen, replacing them with Sturmabteilung (literally Storm Detachment, the Nazi Party’s original paramilitary wing) and SS, who took over the policing of Berlin.
So why have multiple “news sources,” including Reuters and Politifact, gone on record claiming this is false although it is completely true? They don’t want us to notice the comparison.
Instead, we are told defunding the police is needed for “reform,” tying the action to the politically correct Black Lives Matter and social justice movement. But I believe it has absolutely nothing to do with reforming the police. It has to do with taking them out.
Step 3. De-arm the citizens
Our freedom and right to bear arms have been under attack for years. If citizens have no guns, then resistance to a takeover is gone. While the Democrats work to convince Americans that our society would be “safer” if citizens were forced to hand over their guns, history proves otherwise.
Charles Van Wyk, author of “Shooting Back,” has spoken out to warn others of what he witnessed personally in his country of South Africa as citizens were de-armed and strict gun control measures implemented. Now, 26 years later, South Africa’s crime statistics reveal over 20,000 people murdered last year alone–the highest number the country has ever recorded.
“Gun control precedes genocide,” Wyk stated, and history proves his statement true. According to case studies of major twentieth-century genocide, once gun control became law, minority groups were targeted and murdered by the governments that implemented the laws.
Once “gun-free zones” are in place, they are then able to dominate and control citizens, who have been stripped of their guns and ability to protect themselves:
Step 4. The Removal of Statues and History
Hitler understood the importance of removing statues and with them the history connected to them. In the book Hitler at Home (Yale University Press, 2015), author Despina Stratigakost explains how Hitler ordered the eradication of war memorials in newly occupied Belgian and French towns, which “suggests that the Nazis understood the influence of even modest monuments once they become embedded in a community’s everyday life.”
It is unknown how many WWI memorials were removed or destroyed in Belgium and France through Hitler’s orders, in his effort to recast Germany as the victor of the war.
Fast forward to America, where in the last few months, over 30 statues have been torn down in our nation and even more defaced in an effort to remove history under the guise of racism.
Last month, Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered portraits of four speakers, Robert M.T. Hunter of Virginia, Howell Cobb of Georgia, James L. Orr of South Carolina and Charles F. Crisp of Georgia, to be removed from the Capitol in what The New York Times referred to as “the latest in a wave of efforts across the country to purge public spaces of historic symbols associated with racism and oppression.”
The media tried to make us see one thing—that all four men were part of the Confederacy. But what they hid from readers was the more important fact that all four of these men were DEMOCRATS.
Another country in which statues were toppled is Venezuela. Formerly one of the most prosperous democracies in Latin America, it is now a poverty-stricken wasteland. Venezuelan political activist Elizabeth Rogliani has warned Americans that we should be concerned about the toppling of statues and attempted erasure of American history.
According to Rogliani, “Founding Fathers are going to be attacked. Religious symbols are going to be attacked. And next, probably, museums. I mean, anything can be attacked if you just let it happen. If you just let the first ones come down, then [there are] no limits to what’s next.”
“It’s an attempt to change the identity of the country. That’s my opinion. And, that’s what they did to us,” she said. “Of course, it was different. At that point, they already had taken the government. But, at this point, they’re trying to change the national identity and they’re trying to destroy the system. And, if they get to the government, they’ll do it. They certainly will do it.”
Most agencies are pulling out citing Milwaukee’s new ban on the use of tear gas and pepper spray by police
More than 100 police agencies are now backing out of agreements to send officers to next Month’s Democratic National Convention, in Milwaukee. Among the given reasons is that officers are concerned about a recent order by local authorities halting the use tear gas to control unruly crowds.
Last week, the Milwaukee police chief was order to justify his department’s usage of tear gas during protests in late May and early June spurred by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. A citizen oversight commission has now ordered the Milwaukee police department to ban the use of tear gas and pepper spray. Police Chief Alfonso Morales reportedly could lose his position, should he fail to meet that requirement.
Since the order went into effect, Morales says that more than 100 law enforcement agencies from in-state and across the country have opted against coming to Milwaukee for the convention. The initial plan for the convention included having 1,000 officers on hand to assist with security measures. Morales now says the city is considering asking for assistance from the federal government and/or mobilizing the National Guard.
In my opinion it just shows how out of touch democrats are to ask police for safety when they are actively trying to defund and are constantly blaming police at every turn. In my mind this is more reap what you sow than anything else. Why is it only the ruling class gets protection in this country? Democrats want your money, guns, religion and your soul to bow down to their version of little (god) government. They always know best, as long as it hinders your freedom. Tyranny vs Freedom in 2020 election. Watch and learn what the future will hold. You are seeing it play out before your eyes.
Evangelical Christian support for President Donald Trump will be greater in 2020’s presidential election than in 2016, predicted Jerry Falwell Jr., president of Liberty University, sharing his comments on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Matt Boyle.
Ninety percent of Evangelical Christians support Trump’s reelection, according to a recent Democracy Institute/Sunday Express poll. Boyle invited Falwell’s remarks on the poll’s findings.
Falwell replied, “There’s no question about it. The Evangelical support [for Trump] has strengthened. I have board members who travel. I have one board member who lost his legs in Vietnam. He travels from military base to military base, from church to church. He says everywhere he goes [he meets] people who were hesitant to vote for Trump in 2016, [but] Evangelicals are 100 percent behind him, now.”
Falwell continued, “I have pastors on my board to tell me the same thing. They can see the support. They can feel it.”
Falwell shared, “Every Evangelical I’ve run into at every major event has [told me], ‘We were hesitant. We thought you were a little nuts for supporting [Trump] in 2016, but we are 100 percent behind him, now.’ It doesn’t surprise me a bit. It wouldn’t surprise me if it was higher than 90 percent.”
Falwell highlighted the importance of Supreme Court nominations to Evangelical Christians. The Supreme Court is “one place the president can make a difference on social issues,” he said.
The Trump campaign sees an enthusiasm and base intensity gap favorable for the president.
Freedom is not free. Freedom always cost people something. We may not have to fight a war physically or put on battle gear to keep or sustain our freedom. I believe the real battle that we find in America is simply a battle of ideas. You see today we are in a philosophical Civil War. The future will be determined by our response to our present situation. We must somehow stand firm on the ideas and the principles that this nation was founded on and we must learn to educate others to the greatness and the sovereignty of this great nation. We are a most unusual country in this world, we are the first on the scene of every tragedy, disaster, and war. Our goal is never to take an inch of soil but only to proclaim and procure freedom and justice for the oppressed. We are a beacon of light in a dark world. Long live the United States of America. May God bless this nation.
Looking at the world realistically, the second amendment may be the only thing standing between us and tyranny. I was never one to even think that in this country I would need a concealed carry permit. But that has all changed now. Not out of fear, but for simple protection. I was raised in a small farming community, where guns and hunting were common. Gun racks in the back of pick up trucks were common, but safety and respect were just as common. Now in this world with crazy anarchist roaming parts of the country…..
Get a gun and learn how to use it for your protection!
Man our founding Fathers were truly brilliant.
It’s clear from the Democratic candidates on the stage that if you own a gun for the protection of your family —they are coming for it!
@tperkins. Family Research Council
Rumor has it that man child Beto just spilled the beans about making guns illegal. None of the Democrats wanted the whole truth out there. Beto said we are coming for your guns. That won’t play well in 2020. Keep it up dems, you are destroying what little chance you had at making the Presidential election even close.
I honestly can’t figure out why they are doing what they are doing. I’m glad, they are showing all of us just who they really are. Bunch of socialist! America is not there! Maybe some day but not now, thank God!!
Well the democratic socialist are back and surprise to none, they want to destroy our constitution. With all our problems they still want to drag this country through a impeachment episode. Do it! Pelosi doesn’t have the nerve. I sure hope they try though. Get the popcorn and enjoy the show.
Red flag and other governmental infringement on our constitution is much more my concern. Any law limiting the 2nd Amendment will, or should be deemed unconstitutional. My right, I think I’ll keep my guns. Speaking of red flag laws, do you trust the likes Comey and McCabe to administrate something like that. I think not.
